Another Fallen Saint.
For several yea" past, there hare been reports
affecting tie integrity or Gen. Howard, of the
Freedineu'it Biirean. Bnt they were not generally
believed until lately, when It was officially an
nounced by tbe Secretary of Tar, that there i. A
deficit in Howard' aKonnt, to tho amount of
$273,000; and there U but little doubt that he is a
defaulter to a heavy ninonut.
The loyal people of the conutry had almost nn
bonudel faith in Gen. Howard. He was one of
the best General of the army, and did noble ser
Tice thrt-nghout the rebellion. He also manifest
ed great religious zeal, and was denominated the
"Christian Soldier." Siuce the war, he has been
at the head f the FreedmeiT Burean.
Within the past two or threo years, much has
been said about "Christian Statesmen,'' in way
of derision. Those who have used the term, have
been regarded as lacking reverence for Christi
anity, and of sneering at Christians and their
religion. This has not always been a just accu
sation. It has come to be a pretty good sign,
-when a man makes politics his chief business,
and puts his Christianity prominently forward
as one one of his strongest claims to public favor,
that he is a hypocrite, and is using the cloak to
cover np his rascality. It Is no reproach to gen
nine Christianity; but a man parading his Chris
tianity in connection with his politics, is so in
variably a sign that be is bogus, that the term
"Christian Statesman" has become a bnrlesqne.
The same rule applies- too frequently to "Chris
tian Soldiers."
The liEASOX. An observant correspondent
asks us:
M In riving list of officers of the various Msaoole and
Odd Follow Lodge, tat week, von Invariably made it
read, in speaking of the Mason, 'elected fur the ensuing
year,' sail in sneaking of the Odd Fallows, -elected for the
ensuing term Why this distinction P
For a very good aud simple reason. The offi
cers in Masonic Lodges hold for an entire year,
while the Odd Fellows elect twice a year, the
two terms being six months each. Although this
covers the question propounded, we will offer a
remark or two on our own hook. IVc aro an Odd
Fellow, but not a Mason, yet we regard the Ma
sonic rule in this matter as being by far the bet
ter and more sensible of the two. It takes most
men some months to acquire the efficiency neces
sary to make a ereditable presiding officer of any
Lodge. By the time that period has arrived, the
term of tlio Odd Fellow's office has expired, nnd
he leave the seat just about tho time he is ca
pable of filling it, to give place to another green
hand, under a custom which has become almost
as strong as law, of keeping np a rotation to en
able all tho ambitions members to "pass tho
chairs," as a questionable compliment to them,
bnt a positive detriment to tho LoOgo. lint the
Mason, having had six mouths iu w Inch to get
the hang of his office, has six more in which to
make himself useful; and if ho gives satisfaction;
is continued for a year longer, and perhaps still
another year, and another. Those governments
of any kind are most efficient which retain good
and competent men iu the same position for a
ecries of years.
Moore's Rural Xew Yorker. This excellent
paper, known in almost every household in the
land, has just entered upon the 23th year of its
publication. Tho first issue of the Xew Year is
a model paper. It is complete in every depart
meoi of the farm aud household, in news and
literature. Of all the agricultural aud rural pa
pers, this has beeu the favorite, and lias con
stantly grown in favor. A report has been put
in circulation that, in consequence of tbe pub
lisher being embarrassed by the financial panic,
tho Rural would be discontinued. It will not bo
discontinued, audsucha'thiug was never contem
plated. On the contrary, a new assistant publiubcr
has been associated in Its management, a full staff
of tho best editors retained, and the paper will be
made better than ever. All who subscribe, will be
sure of getting tbe paper for the full year, aud
of amply receiving their money's worth. The
price is $2,50 a year for single subscribers. To
Clubs five copies, and one copy free to getter
np of club, $ 12,50; seven copies, and one free,
$16; ten copies, and one free, $20. Address D.

How is ThisI The Grangers of this Conuty
have resolved in favor of establishing an insur
jmco company; and iu Donglas County, they are
forming associations for loaning money. Tho
latter say their object is not to reduce the rate of
interest, for they want all tho interest they can
get; bnt such associations will facilitate the
loaning of money in the communities where lo
cated, to those who nood it. So it seems that, af
ter all, the Grangers possess the same sort of
human nature as other folks, aud do not object
to high charges, when they are tbe ones to take,
and somebdoy else has to give, lint if the farm
ers are all to become insurance men, and bankers,
what will become of the cry of corporate monop
olies, and moneyed aristocrats 1 And if they aro
able to undertake these enterprises, perhaps they
are not so much oppressed aud poverty-stricken
as they thonght!

any in that happy place which men call Heaven,

UT Does the Atchison Champion think it is
doiug a just thing, in selecting sentences and

solicitous for tbe fair fame of the Atchison Sena

the quintessence of wisdom and eloquence, nud

who defended tho appointment of Crozier. Its
reply is very nsarly all devoted to ourself, and
the balance to George W. Martin, whom we did

if there were something in the story of tho Pom

looks as if he could not vindicate himself. This
is the reign of parity that was' inaugurated last
Winter! A certain old lady said she had a sign
by which she could always tell when sho was
going to bare twins. There is sign by which
it may always be known when a good deal of
corruption is going to take place iu Kansas, and
a now set of shysters come to the surface. It is
when a great noise is mado abont Purification

In tbe Summer ef 1813, a party of far-tradrra descending
the Ulasiasippl Kiier is a flat-boat, discovered, aboct where
WTiltttTblll's Landtag now is, an object floating In the wa
ter, which attracted their attention. On overhauling it,
they diaooTered It to be an ordinary angar trough, contain
ing a male baby only three daya old, of French and Ameri
can extraction. They Judged of ita extraction, from the
fact that a frog eat on the head end of the trough, and a
Jack-knife lay at the foot. They took the child in, and left
it at tbe cabin of a settler, which they chanced to espy on
the tank of the river, a few hoars afterwards. Aa they
knew no name for the child, they called bim Waters, from
the circumstance of having funnd hint afloat on the waters;
and to tbU day, the HWislppI Elver is known aa the Fa
ther of Waters. For a Christian name, thay called bim
Bonaparte Jackson after tbe renowned French and Ame
rican Generala who fought their but and greatest battles
in that year.
A few years later, the aettiera having begun to flock to
the country along the Missouri River, attracted by the
fame of Daniel Boone, the people having charge of the waif
Waters emigrated thither, and located in what la now Kay
County, where the child, when he grew np, came tn be
known aa Waters of Bay. lie early exhibited a great food
neaa for books, but no books wens to be had. FinaTlr be
managed to borrow a mntilated copy of DabulTs Arithme
tic from a neighbor, which he read through half a dozen
times during une bard Winter. In the Spring, a family
came Into the neighborhood, who were the fortunate pos
sessors of the 1'ilgriin'a Progress and Gulliver'a Travels
Ilavlng perused them, he pronounced a Judgment npon
their merits, which has been pronounced by hundreds of
others, before and since that Gulliver was fully as sensi
ble and a deal more interesting than the other book.
lie also gave evidence of a thinking and reasoning mind.
One incident will serve to illustrate this. A pioneer school
was opened, and Bonaparte Jackson was one of the most
regular attendants. In storing his mind with the riches of
learning, he waa extremely neglectful of his personal .
pearance. The teacher observed this; and finally the
thought came stealing npon him, strengthened by the com
plaints of the boys who sat adjacent to Waters, that he was
infested with vermin in fart, that be was bmsy. Il.-.vlng
fully satisfied himself npon this point, the teacher one day
called Waters np, to lecture him. The boy came, raking
his fingers through hla hair.
"What makes yon keepopsnch a continual scratching
atyotrrhead!" demanded thetcaebsr.
"Buggers!" was the laconic reply.
"And are yon not ashamed to come to school In that con
dition ! Why don't you rid joursclf of them I"
"Tain't no nse," replied the boy.
"Xouse! Why do you say that I "
"The Scripture aaya so. Tlieyll one back again."
"Be done with this nonsense ! Why do you think they
will come back I"
"Because they are' 'bred npon the Waters, and shall re
turn after many days!'"
The teacher was so struck with thla'rrpiy. that be re
commended young Waters to a UroscopUn physician who
bid just located there, to read medicine In his oftlcu.
But that profession seemed to liare a tendency to keep
the mind from rising above the Influence of the fountain
head of the subtle science by which it is controlled, and he
detei mined to abandon It, never more, to resume it, except
as a pit atUr. The law was what his soul yearned for.
When a hoy, and beyond the reach of books; he had come
into possession of a conple of blank deeds, which he read
and re read, and stndied thoroughly, lie was Impressed
with the quaint beanty of their language and style; and
from that time, hla Inclination leaned atrongly toward the
law. lie now proenred a copy of a new work entitled
"Kvery Man His Own Lawyer," to which he applied him
self studiously, until he became thoroughly versed in the
lair. Be was chosen Justice of the Peace of his Township ;
and many of bis decisions In that position are referred to in
the Supreme Court Reports of the State in which connec
tion nsnally occurs the word "Reversed."
The first case before bim was a suit between two citizens
for a sum of money. After the decision was rendered, it
was ascertained that neither party was worth a cent, aud
that not only the debt could not be collected, but that the
tbTS of officers and witnesses could not be made out of them.
In this emergency, he promptly" decided that the Constable
tanst pay ti? costs!
On another occasion, a widow brought snit against a man
for defrauding her out of a wash bilL After giving her er.
idencr, the Justice asked her:
"Why didn't you make hlin pay in advance, before doing
tho work!"
" I didn't know I had any right to do that," she replied.
" Well, madam, ll is a well established principle of law.
that Ignorance of the law is no exense. Much aa I feel for
3'ou, I must do my duty. I shall have to decide thhi case
against yuo. and require you to pay the costs."

JfortDK Chut iln this week's report, Z srfil commence
with School District No. 70 better knows aa the Winona
District. Tbe school house Is bnUt in keeping with the
general enterprise of the aarronndiag community, and is
furnished with nearly all the modem appliance necessary
for imparting instruction in the elementary branches of
education. Miss Johnson U teaching a second term of
school la thU District, and Is daily Increasing her popular
ity aa a competent and practical educator. Like every
other teacher. Miss Johnson haa her "one misfortune;"
and of all the SU that Infest the school room, a utscelnuse.
ouaaasortaCTtoflrxtbooka Is the greatest calamity. For
every pupil In her school, this teacher haa, at haul, one
school book different from all the rest, which fact necessi
tates her, not altogether. Interesting variety of recitations.
In this one particular, the school patrons or this district
are very much In fault : since a teria ef text books ought
to be adopted in every school! and the nse of all other kinds
should be prohibited. In favor of aoch a onlfunnlty. It
nerds no lengthy argument to prove lu advantage. If
not absolutely necessary t chuslficatlon.lt certainly aa
aisU materially in the work, and makes teaching more
effective, by avoiding ttaf confusion of definitions aad
rnlea which must arise in a' school when the books of aer.
era! authors upon tbe same subject are lb nee. The cost
of textbooks la a small loss, when compared with thgain
of having tbem uniform. First : Aa it economize time.
The teacher can do much more work when he need only
-listen to the recitation of classes. Instead of LndrrMnala;
and when be need not repeat to each pupil expUnationa
and illustrations of the lesson, and additions to H. The
time thus saved by the teacher can lie naod greatly to the
advantage of the pupilaaa individuals, and to tbe school
aa a -whole. Second: Classification stimulates'" pupils to
- more ddigent stndy. Tbe common experience of teachers
reveals the facCthat pupihi wDl study mere diligently to
make preparation for a class recitation, than fur a recita
tion by themselves. Thrpmcnce of numbers in the class,
and the competition of elassmatea,'will sometimes prompt
even dull mlnda to activity,7 welch otherwise could not be
accomplished. Third, ami last': It increases the teacher'
interest in the fostraetbinlielinpjrt. Animation 'on the
part of the teacher is essential to good teaching. A dull
teachermake a dnll claas.Ajclergyman would hardly
take a very warm interest la preaching. If he had but one

teacher is roused np to earnest effort, when a large class

School house, old, email, add uncomfortable, but well
furnished. School, quite huge, and making considerable
advancement In their, studies. .sToscher. a Mr. Yoong by
name, and also young In experience. The classification,
order of recitation, aad manner oC conducting elarts-driU to
be observed in this school, would, however, da credit tn
some older teachers, who. lacking Mr. Yonng'a energy and
close application, will forever rrtilti their present medioc
rity. I have often been led to question the motive of a
certain class of teachers for remaining la the profession i
and If they could be induced to atate the object they have
in view, or the mollies by which, they are actuated in
teaching, it ts to be feared that they would fail to come up
to the standard of duty which la adopted by every trne
teacher. There may be found, attempting to teach in our
schools, persona who have never made teachings stndy,
who have no love for it, .but who teach merely to put in
time null mime more congenial employment presents Itself,
or until they accumulate auffieient money to enable them
t engage in a different kind of business. There may also
bo fiHind those, who merely go through a routine of recita

The teacher employed la Mis Clemlna Brown a lady
who has had considerable experience in teaching, and one
who is possessed of culture and refinement, aa ber school
and school room attest. In addition to mans and chart
tastefully arranged upon the Trails, the teacher haa also
placed mottoes, paintings, and drawings, which give her
school room a cheerful and attractive appearance. Miss
Brown's regiter and class-book go to prove that children
will attend school more regularly, and be more attentive to
their -itndlcs, learn mqr, and learn it better, when school
bouse are pleasantly situated, the school grounds properly
arranged, and the school rooms propi rly furnished. A
school house should.be aosituatod that the children who
frequent it can look ont in all directions apon a pleasing
landscape, since they are unconsciously taught by tbe ob
jects that surround them. When accustomed to look upon
the beautiful Iiiaiiatnre,.they will luarn to appreciato tbe
beautiful In life: aud when thus instructed, they will be
more apt to sho-n- tbe low ami the grovelling, the profane
and the vulgar, and to prove- the troth of the sentiment
of "How near to what is good is what is fair." Kot only
should the school building have pleasant suminndings,
bnt the school room Itself should be made attractive; for
children will not sit down in a mid, dark, gloomy, uninvit
ing room, and study wclb Such surroundings serve only to
blunt the taste, corrnpt tbe morals, and to create a dislike
for stndy at their very outset In the pur-rait of knowledge.
Bntsnrronnd them with what Is beautiful In nature and
art, and their silent teachings will awaken the natural
sente of beanty and refinement which, untouched, forever
remains dormant in the human heart.
