If you have nothing else to come for and take an interest in the Sun day school work it will pay you to come expressly for that. The subjects to be discussed arc to the point, and cover every side of the Sabbath school ques tion. While you will have a chance to criticise as much as you please. From present appearances about two or three hundred proud American citi zens will discover, on election day, that they have been deprived of the right to vote by reason of their failure to register. The law is explicit, and it doesn't make a particle of difference how long you have lived in the city, or how old you are, or how much tax you pay, or wheth er you are white or black if you don't register you can't vote. So if you want to vote, go to the city clerk's office and register, There is not much time left to attend to this duty. The city schools have enrolled 750 pu pils this j'ear, 200 more than wei en rolled at the same time last year.

We wish to call attention to the Empo ria marble yard.otherwise the Southwest ern Marble and Granite Works. This is one of our new institutions. For some time Emporia was without an enterprise of this kind, but enterprising Chicago parties have taken bold and established their business here. The concern owns its lot and building, which are located just opposite the court house. The rooms are not entirely finished and the stock not all. in as yet. Mr. F. A. Ad ams will conduct the business, and be is a man with whom it is a pleasure to deal, from our observation. His sanc tum is behind a large desk aud counter, with marble tablets aud glass frames that arc worthy of a bank. In stock at pres ent we notice several tall monuments, a large number of tombstones of various designs, and a variety of marble slabs, table tops, basins, &c, &c. They also keep marble and slate mantels and bracket shelves. We trust they will do the business their enterprise deserves. Lyon County Sumlay Svliool Convention.

If, however. I can manage to get back n time to attend the convention I will o so. One thing of which you may rest assured, and that is if not with you lerson. that I shall lie 111 my sym pathies, and prayers; for I look upon lie Sabbath school as the nursery ot all that is good and true and noble; that tends to a moral, intellectual and physi cal developemeut of our state; that com mands the respect ami an mi rat ion 01 all good people.

The regular monthly meeting of the Teachers of this county, was held in the county superiuteudnet's office, ou Sat urday afternoon, October 4th. The meeting was called to order at 2 . M., by Superintendent Wharton, pres ident of the association. The Secretary being absent, Eli Snyder, was appointed secretary pro tern. The president announced that the first order of exercises would be plans, re marks, discussions, &c. On opening school the first day, be made some excel ent remarks, covering a good deal of the ground, when the members of the asso ciation took up each topic, and discuss ed it thoroughly. The principal participants in the seV' era! discussions were Messrs. Saxe, Phelps, Snyder, McMahon, Hodge, Dry er and Stone. Teachers programmes were next taken up and pretty well handled, all agreein 011 one thing, viz: that a good pro gramme is a necessity. The subject of grading pupils was also ventilated, and many good remarks and suggestions were drawn out during the debate. It was recommended that each teacher leave a history of his work in the school, also leave the standing and progress of every pupil, so that tlie next teacher would know just where to commence with each aud every pupil. The next subject on the programme was the study of insects, by Mr. A. A. Wells. He being absent there was nothing done with this. Music, by Mr. Kenne dy, was the next thing in order, but Mr. Kenuedy was also absent, and the sub ject was left with the association to deal with, which was done in a satisfactory manner. Prof. Welch and wife favored the meeting with their presence, and dur ing the talks on fair works and the best methods of preparing work for the next county fair, Prof. Welch made a very pleasing aud iuteresting address, fully showing that he came among us to work, and that wherever be cotind find any. thing to do. Before adjourning the following mo tion was moved and carried.

Being in a hurry, we tarried but a few moments, but "Keno" treated us well while we were there. Arriving at Dunlap, we found a little town idl huddled together. Scattered around the depot are cords of cut stone, ready for ihe normal school building, and Judge Foster's fine residence in To peka. Mr. Steiling is also shipping stone from this jxiint for the Lawreucc dam. We enjoyed a very ni-e dinner at the Aldricb hoi:se,"but am sorry to say, came away and forgot to pay for it.

Headley's Illustrated "Life and Trav els of General Grant," a brilliant record of his remarkable career from his boy hood home to the completion of his ex traordinary journey around the world, The guest of queens and emperors, the honored of all nations. General Grant occupies a large place in the interest and admiration of tlie American people; and his experiences in his already famous "tour around the world," which has oc cupied more than two years, and which is just completed, are full of deepest in terest to every American. He has visit ed nearly every civilized nation of any importance on the globe. Kings, empe rors, princes, presidents and municipal dignitaries have vied with each other in doing honor to the man and to the nation of which he has stood as the distin guished representative. To follow him therefore in this journey is to pass through doors which to other travelers have ever remained closed. As a biog raphy of this distinguished man it is en tirely new, and is, beyond doubt, more brilliant, trustworthy and historically accurate than any which has before ap peared. It contains nearly 250 illustra tions, and is therefore deeply interesting and instructive. Have you subscribed for the book ?

I wish to ask, editor News, if there is any one who can tell the present status of the "Kaw Trust Land." You have already published in the News what purports to be instructions from the land commissioner, but it only mystifies instead of instructs. What we want to know is: What are the necessary steps to be taken to secure these and when is it to be done? Some one in authority could put this in such language that a man of ordinary intelligence could un. derstand, but they have neglected up to the present time so to do. Whole sections are left out of the "instructions," in fact, almost all the improved land is left out. D.

There is going to be a heavy demand for land, both claims and deeded land, and you will do well to place yours in the hands of Miller, if you wish to sell.

Announcement Extraordinary. Pearsall enters the free for all race for sheriff. Make room for the heavy weight champion in the political prize-ring. AYe are requested to announce Big Hank, whose surname is Pearsall, as an independent candidate for sheriff of this county. He Is independent but aggres sive, lie is more radical than Zack Chandler or Jim Blaine, more conserva tive than Horatio Seymour or Allen G. Thurman.- On finance he is the peer of old Greenbacks himself and does not wish to be compared to such financial glow-worms as Tom Ewmg, John Slier man or Sam Wood, aud lie has a bigger barrel than old Tilden. In fact he is just the man (he thinks) for slierill of Lyon county. Fearing neither man nor devil, he snaps his fingers at such chart as Jake Moon, Tom Ryan and Hank Lowe and fully confident of his ability,he pro poses to cry the sheriffs sales from the east door of the court house for the next two years. w39t4 The Marsh Ague Cure is the host.
