WiUTi CLOUD, KANSAS: Thursday, ::::::: .THijr 27, 1871. Press Assocutiox. Th Sonthf rn Kanfaapn peni are propoing a meeting of the S'ale Prrs Association at some point ill Son them Kaunas, du ring the present Reason. Vow is a proper time to ask: What is the nse of such meetings, or of a State Press Association f A portion of the pnb lUbcrs meet together, and pledge each other to maintain regular rates fur work. Then, some fellows who do not attend, or who are imported for the purpose of publishing pajicrs in somelwdy' interest, go to undermining the prices, in order to secure the public printing, and enable 'them to eke out a precarious existence. The members of the Association simply resolve themselves out of irablic work, or break thcirplcdge. Forour part, we are resolved to fight these rats with rat med icine, until they get sick of their own game. A Bemixiscexck. The Topeka Jlttnrd giTcs a history of Jim. Laxe's proposed great Southern Expedition, in'lSCl, designed to.takc possession of the Indian Territory and Texas, form three or four new States, and-to colonize hanra men in them, to fie chosen Congressmen" and Senators. The Record is severe npou the fogyism of Gen. Hcstee, who knocked the scheme in head. That being the case, the country is far more indebted to Gen. Hcktkb than it has been aware of. If he nipped in the bud the aspirations of the band of shysters who were to fellow Lane South, he did an set for which the conntry should be grate ful.

Miller" has used regarding Vallaxmgiiam, since his death, The Council Grove Democrat is informed, that when a decent Democrat dies, "Sol Miller" lias respect for his memory; but when a brute and ruffian dies, he speaks of him as a brnte and a ruffian. That is just what VAtXANDtGriAM was, and his being dead cannot cliange our opinion. Knowing him as we did, having witnessed his de moralizing influence upon the very natures of his followers, and rcmembrcing how they, under the inspiration of his teachings, exhibited their fiend ish joy over the assassination of Lincoln, we cannot have a particle of pity for his fate, or respect for hi memory. 17 We like to endorse a man with a soul, wher ever we find him, and in whatever party. Dave Holt, Treasurer of Richardson County, Nebraska, fills the bilrin one particular, at least. The. De linquent Tax List is about to be published. The publisher of the Enlo SegUter, in order to prevent a competing newspaper making anything out of it, pnt in a bid to publish it for nothing; but Holt gave it to the Falls City Journal, at legal rate. That is the way to do it. We do not care a continental for the sweet-scented qnarrel going on between the two papers; but when any man calling himself a printer undertakes to ruin his own trade to spite a competitor, wo like to see them come Holt over him. iy The Leavenworth Commercial calls the Neu tral Land outlaws, nnder the lead of Sanfoko, the "Kansas Communists." Those are the fellows who petted Sn. Clarke for two years; voted al most solidly the Democratic ticket last Fall, be cause the Republicans would, not pander to their lawless conduct; and have been murdering men and burning newspapers fur differing from them. These are all strong symptoms of Communism. Q?" Tho Leavenworth papers announce the mar riage of W. A. Lacgiilik to Miss SC8IK DlCKDT SOK, of that cliy, and brag how well they ha ve both done. We could have told them that, easy enough. Seas is a subscriber to the Chief. That class of girls are always worth looking after, and they al ways make good selections of husbands. Of course, they have both done well. Our best wishes for Lock Box 313. tST "Aphasia" is a disease, of which a late writer treats, in which the person affected, gives utterance to wonts entirely different from those, he means to speak in other words, says one thing, but means another. That's what lias always been the matter with the Democratic party. "Apha sia" is the name. When they promise the people anything, they always mean something else. CP We have received the second number of the Blue Rapids Tines, hailing from Marshall County, and published by Tinners & Hall. This paper probably issued no first nnmler, as we have not beard of anybody who has seen one. We believe this makes four papers published in Marshall County. We wish the Tinea and all the rest of them success. K3 It is reported that Col. Wm. A. Phillips, of this State, is to be appointed Commissioner of Indian Affairs. That would be an appointment fit to be made. Col. Fnnxirs is aide and honest; he is thoroughly acquainted with the Indiana, their desires, needs, and ways; and all the In dians have faith in him. CF Jeft. Davis has had another thrilling ad venture, no was detected in a woman's berth, in a railway sleeping car, and compelled to crawl out. No doubt the old cuss imagined himself a woman, as he did in the Spring of 16G5, and longed for the companionship of his own sex. But he never was a success, as a woman. E5 The Clerk of Richardson County, Nebraska, has been impeached, and removed irnra office. The Bulo Segitler says itwas dono because he is a Democrat. That is a serious charge against a man, we admit; but there. were, probably other misde meanors to aggravate the case. 17" The Doniphan -Dewocmt thinks the Democ racy of Kansas ought to hold a State Convention, sometime this Summer.

We were shown by Mr. Graff, a most curious souvenir of ages long since departed, and some unknown monster whose race -once dwelt in the Arkansas Valley, long ere the war wnoop 01 toe savage rennea in its torests. It is a tooth, or rather a portion of a tooth, of of some gigantic creature whose species and history are now extinct. It is curved in shape, about four inches in length, in a tolerably fair state of preservation, and has the appearance of being a back tooth or "grinder." It was found at a depth of forty-five feet be low the surface, in excavating a well on the farm of Mr. Graff, about two miles south of town. The workmen were digging carefully, in hope of find ing the balance of the remains. Oxford Timet. Kansas is still ahead. Down in Cowley county they have captured a bull frog which is an aston iahcr. The whole lower part of the mouth was filled with teeth, irivinirit the appearance of a hoot heel filled with tack nails. The teeth were twenty-nine in in number, and Bat. as if made for crushing rather than grinding. Those in the cen- rer maasnrea .wa 01 an men in uiameter, wmie those iu the outer row were about tbe size of a pin head. The frog weighed 3 pounds. & Killed BtLightxiso Lnringathuriaerstann nn the 10th imrL Mr. Josenh W. Alexander was LkUIedby ughtnfognearBtoliragtoB, Coffey county.

They were driving a two-horse team, anil oom sluing upon uie waguu sw, a descending bolt struck them. Both horses were instantly killed, and the two men were stricken senielcssby -the. shock'. .Joseph Alexander was killed, the electric fluid having struck him appa rently on the head, passed down his face, neck and chest, burning them badly, and finally passing through the wagon seat, melting a nut from a bolt, and sodecendedto the ground. The other gentle man was stunned at the time, and thrown from the scat, with his neck and bead'ocross one side of the wagon box, his face-turned upward,. No one was near at the time, and the rain falling npon his face must have finally revived him, after lying in thia position over an hour. When he recovered he could not move head nor foot, but by desperate exertions he succeeded in moving his toes and the tips of his fingers, and at last mustered enough vitality to set his arms and legs in motion. Murder. We take the following curious ac count of a murder perpetrated in Wilson eonnty from the Eureka M erald: We learn from Mr. L. J. McCulloch that a brutal murder was committed in Wilson county a few days since. It seems that a Scotchman, whose nam we did not learn, was living on a claim with his two children. He t cut away to work and was gone some days. On his return he How into a passion because he thought the girl had eaten too much meat, and, seizing a bone, he beat her brutally. He left again, and while absent the boy beat the girl so that she died. The boy was nine years of age and the girl six. The parties are now in custody. A man was shot dead while sitting at the table in the dining room of the Southwestern hotel, at Snmner City, at noon last Fridayby a man who called himself Con way, from Cottonwood river.

The Garnctt Plaindealer tells the following: "One day last week, Mrs. Dr. Mackey, of this city, was sitting in her parlor sewing, when a tree frog came in at the window and took its way to a door and climbed np the door caeiug to tho top. Very soon a common snake abont three feet long, came in at the win dow" it was evidently looking for Mr. Frog and took its position in the middle of the room, and coiled nn into a spiral form and erected his head several inches and directed his eyes to the frog; soon the frog's attention was attracted to the snake. Directly the frog became w charmed that it involuntarily, but slowly, came down, the door casement and along the floor, and finally entered the month of Mr. Snake, evidently to its great satisfaction, when it slowly bnt decorously retired from tbe scene of its triumphant Jugglery." Accidents. Speaking of harvesting casnalties, the New Chicago Trantcript says that J. 31. Mur phy, Esq., of that place, last week bad his hand very badly broken while feeeding wheat to a threshing machine. Although his injuries aro quite severe, his hand will lie saved. A young man, a stranger at New Chicago, had the heel of one of his feet terribly lacerated in a horse-power that was nml to run a thrashing machine, last week. We heard of another accident that oc curred in Cow ley county last week, by which a man who was employed upon a threshing machine, became canght in tho tumbling shaft and was very badly injured, perhaps fatally, before being extricated.
