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.

My Dear Sir: In answer to your
letter of the 12, inst., requesting my
presence at the Sabbath school conveu-
ion to be held at Kin porta ou the 14th
and 15th of October, I will state that I
fear it will be impossible for me to be
present at the convention, for the reason
that I have an engagement that will
probably require me in the western part
of the state at that time.
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

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

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
Prof. Welch and wife favored the
meeting with their presence, and dur

of his remarkable career from his boy

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

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

brilliant, trustworthy and historically
accurate than any which has before ap

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.

don't understand the business, and would
have to take you to Miller's office to draw
a deed or write a note or do any other

Editoks News: At the request of
many friends, 1 hereby announce myself
as an independent candidate for the of
fice of Register of Deeds for Lyon county,
subject to the decision of the legal voters
of the county, at the ensuing election in

At the request of friends of all politi

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
