Fei.ixjw Citizens: After traveling 130 or 2H) mites to-day and meeting a con. siderable number ot our fellow citizens, all of them anxious from motives of cu riosity or other reasons to see us nnd hear us, if but only to say a single won!, jlou will hanriy expect ine to enter upon any extended! talk' to-day. I ussure you that my journey thus far has Itecn a very agnfable one. Wo have seen all arouud us evidences of very great pros- : - - - .. i- - a .,. i . Ieriiy,ii rapm jjrowin unu a proutietive- hess of soil which are truly wonderful Throughout the country there is perhaps as much interest in this statu of Kansas as in any of the new slates. Without going into the early history of Kansas, celebrated n't Lawrence recently' by a n,cciiu'g ot lljo pioneers, of the Mate, I am inclined to think that it is the bcr-t advertised community in the United .States. fLau-ihter.l In the matter of advertising, your greatest success was at the Centennial at Philidclphia. The world gathered there to learn what they could by judgment. After having gone rather liatilv through it for I waa not allowed to choose my time and place of seeing things then any mora than I am now, I was ruuning hastily through that gn-at Exposition great in every way great in its results, for it has done an immense good throughout tho civilized world. Iu looking at the Spanish, Ja panese ami Chinese displays, 1 was much pleased, but the liest of all was the display of the state of Kansas. Cheers. iWinniriz with that, you kept it up with a scries of advertisements, one of which was the issue ol a volume o re. ports that beats any other volume that I Lave met with from any of the other states. I am in the habit of looking at VOL,. 22. the statistical reports, and after having uitiji my minii unecieu lit tills way by reading thcbe n-jvirts, giving me infor mation of the products aiHl condition of the country, I came to visit your state, so that, you -see, I am ri zht upon fle wtiole tu saying that you i.ic un exceed ingly well advertised community. Laughter. I come to see if the thing iis.-u was as gooa as the mtvert isement. More laughter.! Inere is sometimes a title failure in coining uu to the mark I am not going to pass i udjrment on that yet. luencwed laughter.! I will wail until 1 we a little more: t though what I lave seen is verv fcatisfaclorv. If!liers 1 the first introuuetion Iliad to Kansas struck me favorably. When you go anywhere the people naturally show you me ucm ining nicy nave, i Know a city where it was fashionable t u.ke you to the cemetery. Laughter. Iremeinlier several cemeteru-s very much blesseil in nai way. Uenewtti laugliter.l 1 was la a cil v a lew day airo w here thev took me to see the iin factory: that was the best thing that they had. When 1 got to Wiiusaa l wondered what would bs tho best thing they had to show me here. 1 waited to see where they would take me. They took me to see their school house. lChfrs.l There is noth ing better than that to show anywhere; that is a good thing. Cheers. Simply as as ud vert isemeut. There is no belter advertisement for a community or acity. i neers j i ne ocstciasscs ol emigration hurt go lo countries where thev have no good schools. On the other hand the very liest class of emigrants do go where they have pood kcIiooIm. and so vou have ne rigiit with me. I iion't know what you are going to do with me in Parsons, but what I see here I am pleased with. 1 will relieve your patience now by in- roducingyouto the renllenian who lead our armies from Atlanta to the sea, Gen- Mierman. Iunl cheers. The crowd trave three cheers for the President and three cheers for Gen. Sherman. Gen. Sherman then paid: My friends, wc have liceu travelin all lay anil are tired. I am very much ob liged to that ircntlemaii who made that ixcch lit our reception. lie tells us many things in a fair, mnuly way that prepares us tor whatever we have got to lay. We will avoid that oueslion of the Indian frontier, wliich vou know is in the brails of all you fellows here. Lauglitcr.l The General, however, pro. ceded at some lenirlh to counsel niiMter- alion and conformity to the laws regu lating the lands of the Indian Territory. and told t he assembly to watt a few years and then perhaps they would possess the ndian laud eaccably. llic ueneral concluded us follows: Now, boys, let us meet at Neosho to morrow, and in the meantime let us have little rest. Cheers were criveu for General Sher man and the President. Sheridan, Lojan and Evarts were alWl for, but General Sherman told the rowd that none of those trentlemeu ere present. Thev then called out Mrs. Hayes, and cheered her heartily. In the eveninir the people crave the President a reception tit the St. James otel in this place. THE REGISTRATION LAW.

The science of nictoric astronomy is, in wnatever light it may lie viewed, one of the darkest subjects with w hich as tronomy has to deal. Thanks to the in defatigable energies of mixlern astrono mers, the dark clouds with which it has so long been enshrouded are breaking away, letting in uu occasional ray of light to illumine the pathway to a com plete solution. Meteoric astronomy now takes rank as a distinctive branch of astronomical science. Not forty years have elapsed" since it was ascertained that star show ers are periodical. Even then, and for many years after, it was supposed there were but two, called August and No vember showers. Now, not less than 100 have been detected, and others tire constantly being added to the list. 1 he accounts ot the showers that occurred in ancient times, came down to us clothed in such extravagant language that, until the great star shower of November lo, 15:5, astronomers were loth to believe thein. Now they know not only the cause, but are abh; to predict their re currence with almost as much exactness as eclipses, and the popular mind ob serves these displays with equanimity ami delight instead of fear and alarm, or thinking the day of judgment has come. Science has disarmed not only them, but eclipses and comets us well, of their ter rors. All know what ashootinur star looks like, but no living man can tell us what it really is, lor not one has ever liccn known to reach the earth. Those heavy. tony and still more weighty metallic masses, ca I led meteorites, meteoric stones, ivc, w hich occasionally tall to me earth from the celestial regions, of which the one that recently fell iu Iowa was a re markable example, lielonj to another class of objects entirely, the oriiriii ol' which man knows nothing. A shooting star is only visible while undergoing the process of combustion, which lasts Irom one to three seconds. seldom longer. Previous to this they exist In a dark, proliahly solid condition, not much if any larger than peas, too small to lie seen by daylight, and iu the night, In ing in the carth'sshadow, are eclipsed, and consequently in visible. Only while lsing burned are they visible to us, as then they shine hv their own light. Each metcoroi moves in an, orbit, re volving round the sun with as much reg ularity as the larger planets. Iu fact, each is in every sense of the word a plan et, olieying strictly the laws ol gravila lion ami jilauetary motion. All r.pace is filled with them; they areas numer ous as the sand. The eiirlh and they in their journey round the sun, encounter each other; the earth by its superior at traction draws them toward it, but to reach it they must pass through the at mosphere, wliich not one is able to do. Only ntetoric stones are able to reach the earth and they have their surfaces blackened, and converted to scoria by the terrible heat engendered by tho friction with the atmosphere and by accelerated motion. Shooting stars move iu all directions, and ut velocities piobably equal to the earth's nearly nineteen miles a second. One moving retngrade, therefore, (east to west) would plunge into the atmos phere at a relative velocity of some thirty eight in les a second, and. if allowance be made for accelerated motion, caused by tho earth's attraction, probably double that, or seventy-five miles a sec ond. The encounter is fearful, and but for the atmosphere, which ucts as a cushion, the effect would lie disastrous for not less than S00,000,000 would rain upon the earth every day. The source from whence these meteo roids come is comets, esecial!v from their tails. The tail of the great" comet of 111 was 130,000,000 miles in length and l."i,noo,OOt) in diameter. It is im: probable in the highest degree that the eoniet could gather its tail to itself again. It is left liehind, forming part of a ring, which in tune may become coi;imious Another cqiiiet come and it 'does' the same, and during the ages whifjh are passed this process has been going on (.ill the inter planetary spaces are 'rjllcd with not only mete-orojds, bpt something still more marvelous, meteoric rings. In aliout 30,000 years that great comet will return again and repeat the process, forming part of another ring, or, addiqg to the first, depending on circumstances, which need not be considered here. Whenever the earth, in its annual jour ney, passes through any ring made bv some comet, no man knows when, we get a star shower. It l-oks as if the counsel for the pros ecution in the Ingalls investigating case had a sever attack of craw-fishing. They are not ready. They don't know what they want to do. They are groping about iu a blind sort of way, evidently honing against hope that something will turn up. Atchison Champion. a EMPOIirA, KAXSAS, FJIID AY, OCTOBER 3, 1S79. BOW THE OIL CROSSED THE HILLS John Ward, one of the watchmen on duty during the filling of the new oil- pipe line, gives me ioitowmg account ol what he saw. The line crosses Hiner's Run, or its headwaters, ut a place called McClure's springs. Here there is quite a hollow or depression m the ground. From this piece to the residence of 31 r. Hold in, some six miles beyond, there is a gradual rise; mis me on Had to climb after passing the hollow at the spring. I was told to watch well this hollow, as the oil had ascended the Kettle Creek mountain and was coming. I repaired to the hollow and lay some hours there, when I heard a sound like a heavy wind, and presently heard tin) oil gurgling past. I waited some time. There was no leakage and all seemed perfect I thought that the pipe line was a suc cess tor sure, and so left myposition and passed along to see it it was all right ahead. I hail gone some two miles when 1 received a dispatch to watch well fhe hollow and not to leave it for some time, so I lias teued back. Imagine my astonishment when I saw the place I left such a short time before so tame now hissing at 10.- 000 points. Jets of oil were flying 20 teet high, and hundreds of barrels tlow- ngdown Miner's Kun. never to see a market. I thought the piive had gone up sure. At first I was afraid to approach it, but soon grew valiant, and with a calking chise l 1 set to work to stop the leak. 1 maue poor headway, it was a dark night, and I dared to have no light. I had taken off my coat, the whizzing oil carried away my hat, and I very soon be came drenched with oil. My iwckets and my hair and eyes were full, and if I was not men an oil man, 1 would like to know what constitutes one. I at length grew sick, and supposed I would have to give up aad ull would be lost, when all at once the whizzing stopped, and in stead of an out-pressure, I could hear an in-drawing, a suction ol air. I now realized the fact that the oil had all this time lieeii climbing the up-grade lo Mr. Holding's, but was now on the descent for Pine liottom run. This caused a suction, and relieved the hollow at the springs. I again waited some time, when I re ceived a dispatch to hasten to llaney ville, that the pijie was bursting. I pro cured a horse and went with all speed. hen I arrived the people there were greatly excited. The pine was throti- bing and whizzing at every pore. Mc Clure's springs were nowhere. The oil was spouting from the pipe for miles made no attempt to calk. I knew from my experience at McClure's snrin.rs that the oil had reached and was climb ing the high mountain below Pine creek. but the pressure was so irreat that T fear ed every moment the pipes would burst. uero was a lorce against which human power was of no avail, hence we onlv stood and looked on, w hen suifdeiily, as quick as thought, all commotion ceased, except a sucking in of air, and I heard i ne on pass rapidly along the pipe and knew it had crossed over the mountain and was speeding its way to Williams- port, with no more mountains to climb, and that the oil line was an established fact.

Of the Ingalls investigating farce now In ing enacted at Topcka the Common wealth says: The "memorialists" were wonderfully clamorous for an investigation, and were profuse in assurance that, should an in quiry In; ordered, they would instantly proceed to make good all their charges, and more. Npy they come up tq the scratch w ith tjie sap.iii kind of alacrity that a steer manifest w hen it is being brought to the ring fqr slaughter. The committee and the respondent are unani mously clamoring for testimony, while the great Eggers and the greater Stum Imugh content themselves with looking idiotically wise, and pleading lor delay. Clarke seems to have lied into the w ild erness, and one by one the witnesses who cannot stand cross-examination are drop ping out and subsiding from public view. BERRIES. " In the time of peace prepare for war, is the maxim of the wise statesman ; and the horticulturist, adopting the spirit of this motto, sets alxut preparing for the next summer, as soon as the cool days anil nights of autumn lay to rest tho roots and slocks of his fruit trees and vines. Among small fruits raspberries seem to take most kindly to the soil and climate of Kansas. Every fanner should have his lot or "patch" planted to this deli cious, easily pnipagated fruit. It is not only a wholesome luxury that his f miily may enjoy in season, but if a surplus is raised, so much the better. He can readily dispose of the lierries at his near est tow n, at good prices, and the citizens will be only too glad of tho opportunity of supplying their tables with fresh ber ries gmwn at home. Thousands of dol lars are sent out of the state every sum mer in exchange fur berries of all kinds, which ought to be grown at home. Kansas Parmer. Most of the eastern paters mistook the Neosho Falls district fair for a state fair, and so have generally advertised it.

Judge Choate made an elaborate decision in the matter, and says the motion must jc de nied upon well settled rules of practice, relat ing to the matters of bills of partic ulars. After alluding to the general ef fects of such bills, he says:' "The government is not to lie presumed to know what any man's income is, still less the several parts of which it is made up. Every man is presumed to know these things with entire certainty. While the otliccrs of the government may have such creditable information as to the tax-payer's income as to make it projier to bring suit and recover excess of in come tax due, that information may not lie so specific or detailed as to enable the district attorney, in advance of the trial, to set forth the items going to make up an income with the certainly required iu a bill of particulars."

TIIE SEVENTH DAY. Col. Ingersoll's proposition to "reileem for the use of man the seventh day of the week," shows the fallacious ends t' which reformers go. The seventh day of the week is row the properly of man. It is for man's use, anil sensible nu n are using it. It is for the ue to which the t'rcalor put it when he finished things for rest As a sanitary measure alone, fhe Sabbath should remain what the do manris of nature made it a day of rest and recreation. Od. liigersoll in his war on the sujierstition ami folly of some of his preachers, is carrying bis ideas too far. As intelligence increases and as superstition g:ves way locuiuruou sense, the seventh day . ill touie into use for which it was intended, and a use for whleh it Is absolutely necessary, a day of recreation and rest lor men. And it is not alone ia this matter that Col. Ingcr soll is wrong, for he ia taking' the ad vantage of the nonsense of some religious people to make fun of and war upon re ligion of every sort. After awhile ome man w ill rise up with iower to separate the wheat from the chair, ami when 1-e Ooes, hb will knock 8uperst;,t;o.a, with much of Col. ItJgerjiiU'g iatitudinarianism in the head at one aad the same blow. The Napo leon of religion has not yet arisen. When he does, the Napoleon of infidelity will die and be buried in the same grave with superstition. There is a verity in religion, but like the diamond in the toad's head, it Is surroonded with a good deal of darkness. Exchange. NO. 40. LEGAL NOTICES. Delinquent Tax List.
