We usually do the best we can and trust to the kindly charity of our readers for the rest, but this week we feel that an apology for our paper is due to us.

Oberlin Herald. Married Dec 10th 1891, at the resi dence of the bride's parents, in Ogallah, by Rev. G. W. Rich, Norah Yetter to William A. Tawney. The bride is well known in this community and univer sally respected. For several years she has held the very responsible position of station agent and .telegraph operator at Ogallah and considered by the company as one of its most faithful and efficient employes. The groom is also a railroad employe and is well on the way to pro motion. He has been a resident of this county and is also well known here. We congratulate both on their mutual choice. What a Woman Can Da She can come to a conclusion withoaft the slightest trouble of reasoning- on it She can throw a stone with a curve that would be a fortune to a baseball pitcher. She can appreciate a kiss from her husband seventy-fire years after the marriage ceremony was performed. She can walk half a night with a colicky baby in her arms without once expressing the desire of murdering the infant She is as cool as a cucumber in a half- dozen tight dresses .and skirts while a man will sweat and fume and grow fas one loose shirt Drake JCajcasiae- . - - k. ?;3l, 1 tiit 1 ? -r 1 ir'ir - iniiiTniiiiTwrnmriiiffTTTiiTTrT 1 iaMaaga.-xM,-awM. --, . : ., -MrtTOMreirAiFcoLTTMBy TEACHER'S ASSOCIATION MINUTES. - Wa-Keeney, Kan. Dec 5, 1891. The teacher's association met pursuant to call of program committee. A song by the association was followed by quotations fiom Longfellow in answer to roll call., A paper entitled "Reading and what should be taught with it," written by Mrs. Hunt, was read by A. D. Crooks, juts, .nunc oemg absent Miss Carrie C. Davis sent an excellent paper on the re lation of history and geography." It was read with great elocutionary and telling effect by Miss Root. Miss Seuenschwander gave "the bright side of a teachers life," and Miss Carrie Sweet emphasized "the place and value of mental arithmetic." The program was followed by a lesson on mental philosophy, from RoBencrans. Adjourned to. meet at call of program committee. Mattie Winn, Secretary, pro tern. The essays given below on South America were written on tablet during class recitation and afterward copied on neat note paper with pen and ink. The teacher has made no corrections in the manuscript, and hence the work is a fair sample of regular class work. The girls are pupils in district twenty-nine, and are thirteen and fifteen respectfully. What boy can beat these essays? SOUTH AMERICA. South America is divided into the Andes plateau, the plateau of Brazil and of Guiana, and the Great Central Plain. The Great Central Plain is divided in to three parts, viz: Llano9, of the Orinoco; the Selvas, of the Amazon; and the Pampas, of the La Plata. The Llanos is about four times the size of Ohio. It has wet and dry seasons. In the dry season the people drive their cat tle to the foot of the mountains and the reptiles bury themselves in the mud and remain in a torpid state. The Selvas is covered with a vast for est interwoven by gigantic vines and alive with birds and insects of brilliant colors. The animals are the puma, monkey, tapir, ostrich, tortoise and the jaguar. The Pampas is about three times the size of the Llanos. It is like the Llanos in many respects, except it is much colder. It supports great numbers of herds of cattle and many sheep. The animals of the plateaus are the llama, alpaca and coudor. The productions are cocoa, sugar, cof fee, indigo, tallow and saltpetre. All of the states are republics except the Guinas. The settlers are from Spain and Portu gal. The railroads are short and few. The most important being across the Isthmus of Panama. The Andes mountains are the highest. Aconcagua and Sahama are the highest volcanoes. The natives are Indians. Over half of South America is in the torrid zone and the other part is in the south temperate zone. It is very cold in the southern extremity. Commerce is rapidly increasing. Edu cation receives much attention in Chili and Argentine. The most of the cities are along the coast and in a line from Buenos Ayeres to Valparaiso. The highest city is Pasco, in Peru. SOUTH AMERICA. The physicial division of South Ameri ca are the plateaus of the Andes Brazil Guiana and the Great Central Plain. The Great Central Plain is divided into three principal divisions: 1st, the Lla nos, of Orinoco, is a treeless and a very fiat tract or land. It is covered with grass, and supports millions of horses and cattle. It has a wet and dry season. During the dry season the grass dries up and blows away, and the inhabitants drive their herds to the foot of the Andes mountains. The Selvas, of the Andes, is the largest division of the Great Central Plain and is covered with forests interwoven with gigantic vines. The animals are the pums, jaguar, boa, monkeys and insects of brilliant colors. The Pampas, of the La Plata, is more thau three times the size of the Llanos and is similar in many respects. It is used mostly for grazing. The productions of South America are hides, tallow, wool, coal, gold, copper, silver, diamonds, guano, saltpetre and coffee. The government of South America is republican except the Guianas, which are governed the same as the countries to which they belong. The settlers are people from Spain. Portugal and France, and live mostly along the coast Peru has the largest number of rail roads. The most important railroad of South America is the Panama railroad, as it is the shortest trade route between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The Andes mountains are the most Im portant. Their highest peaks are Acon cagua, Sahama, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Antisani and HlinianL Commerce is rapidly increasing. Edu cation is increasing more rapidly in Pern than any other country of South America. The cities are situated principally along the coast Rio Janeiro is the largest dry of South America.

Ffcrhsps'the most common devios for defrauding the postal andenstoms rev enme of this and other countries is tha inclosing or "prohibited "articles with printed matter Although a great va riety of articles thus committed to the mails reaches the dead letter office, few are of such character or value as to suggest a speculative purpose, beyond the saving in postage For the moat part they are evidently intended aa gifts, the testimonials of affection ex isting between families and friends, widely scattered, but which cannot be transmitted in the mails between postal onion countries except at letter rates, and which can only be sent under cer tain conditions in the domestic mails. Gloves, ribbons, small pieces of silk, children's shoes, jewelry of modest value, needlework, infants garments, toys and stockings are largely among the things found in newspapers, often accompanied by written communica tions, which, while not disclosing the identity of the sender, clearly indicate a purpose to evade the law The great uncertainty of success, and the equally great probability that the receipt of this class of matter at the dead letter office, if of domesticoorigin, insures its ultimate condemnation to the auction room, are evidently not clearly under stood by its would-be friends. This is an ill-advised economy and one that frequently results in the loss of some valued memento. Stamps are cheap, pay your postage. The Love ol Self. Self-love has a very wide meaning and various interpretations, most of them unfavorable It is argued that a self-loving man has not and cannot have, love for anybody else; that he must be completely, repulsively selfish; that the external world is related to him only through his hard and monstrous egotism But is there any such man. outside of moral theories and the shocking doctrine of total deprav ity? Men are never half so bad as they are represented or as we like to believe in our misanthropic moods. Self-love may be low or high, mean or generous, degrading or elevating. All depends on its quality and degree. The self-love that is little, narrow, absorb ing, is allied to gross selfishness,' and is character-3tic of ignoble minds. The self-love that is modest moderate, re flective, critical, begets self-respect, proper pride, sense of responsibility and obligation It inheres in the loft iest the gentlest the most conscien tious spirits; it is the fertile mother, the world over, of high thoughts and noble deeds. A descriptive account of the volcanic phenomena of the Cocapah mountains near Yuma in Southern California was recently given by Col I K Allen, a well-known engineer who has visited that region lie says that there are over three thousand active volcanoes there, one -half of which are small cones ten or twelve feet at the base, the remaining half five to forty feet at the base and fifteen to twenty-five in height The whole volcanic region is encrusted with sulphur One peculiar feature of the region is a lake of water jet black, which is a quarter of a mile in length and one-eighth of a mile in width, seemingly bottomless ei he wa ter is hot and salty The ameer of Afghanistan was issued a proclamation announcing that he in tends to visit England He has heard of the jolly times his great friend, the shah of Persia, had while visiting the queen and the British nobility. The news is quite a surprise to England, as the ameer has not been invited to come. A ruler of that country has never been so far away from home, though two or three of them have been entertained in lavish oriental style in India. The con duct of the shah while on his recent visit will, doubtless, make the English a little shy of visitors from the orient An ice-breaking ferryboat is a new feature of the straits of Mackinac. It has an enormous capacity for carrying cars, and its peculiarities are strength, shape and the number of engines, twenty-four being required. The bow rises from the water as if it were a hammer She advances toward the ice, and, shoving her nose over its edge, lifts herself upon it A propeller under the overhanging bow sucks the water from under the ice and the. weight of the boat crushes it By its aid the channel will be kept open during the winter. Explorers in Alaska meet with many obstacles in their efforts to open up the country. Lieut Schwatka, who lately beaded an expedition into Alaska, found the country much broken and the rivers practically unnavigable. It is thought there is much mineral wealth in the country which will in time lead to the building of railroads, which is the only means of overcoming the existing drawbacks of travel. The customs authorities of New York city made a queer seizure the other day. It consisted of twelve boxes of snaket for which au owner could not be found. The reptiles, among which were eight eea huge anacondas, were sold at auc tion, bringing seventy-five dollars. The dime museums will, very likely, be the destination of the queer shipment Some curious experiments recently made by German electricians with lightning have shown that the amount of electricity in an ordinary flash is so, smell that it would require thirty-eerea. fluhr- to keep a common racaadeseeat amp barning ouejiour. , ' , it . . -- 4L wa .- - , uFFiiiiJLiiuutimeiJii; ' County.
