The Board located the new Reform School at Eldora, last week—Moir, Hun ter, and Dashiell voting for that place. The citizens of that town had a big jollification over the event on Wednesday night last. A. lady writes to the Newton Free Prett : “I laid off all my superfluity of dress last week, and will marry an elegant man in less than a week to come. Come, sis ters, follow suit.” That is rather a shift-less way to catch a husband. Lihural. —From certain manreuveriag we aaw in the Dem-Repub meeting last Saturday we came to the conclusion that it was being run (or attempt made) in the interest of Wm. T. Smith, for Congress— which Is just as good a thing as Republics could ask. Mr. J. E. Moorman, of the wholesale boot and shoe firm of Moorman, Green A Co„ returned home yesterday from Boston and New York, after an absence of three weeks. Th ey are preparing to cany on an extensive trsde with western and northern lowa. Oixoh.— The Liberals appear to think allmen who attend their Conven tions are i B sympathy with the movement. Last Saturday, during their lore feast, af ter listening Vo ae Tera j ex Republicans, they called on the Hon. Jno. N. Dixon, who got up and responded: “Gentlemen, I don t belong to this church, and any re marks from me might not add to your happiness.'’ Curtains.—We have been asked fre quently where we got our nice curtains. We bought the material of W. M. Wells, and our job printer, W. M. Leighton, print ed them. Many have admired them here tofore ; now, because you find they are made at home, don’t say, “Pshaw, they re not as nice as I thought they were.” Col. C. W. Ftsher, formerly editor of the Herald, now Supt. of the Denver and Pa cific railway and Gen. John Pierce, one of the chief managers of the above named road, gave us a call this week. They ac companied the hunters on their Hampton trip. The Col. looks well and reports everything lovely in his neck of roads. Hunting Party.— A party of hunters left this city Wednesday noon for the hap py hunting grounds near Hampton, lowa. They went fully prepared to baye a good time, which we hope will come fully up to their expectations. The following named gentlemen compose the party : C. Cooper, John Woltz, C. W. Fisher, A. M. Abra ham, H. C. Leighton, Jas. Ruan, W. H. See vers, J. W. McMullen, Gen. John Pierce, John Shannon, M. Voorhees, Hen ry Cooper, and Tom Lawrence. Primary Election.— The primary elec tion will be held next Saturday, the 17th, in the vanouß precincts, when it is hoped there will be a full turn out, that the choice of the people may be had. From what we can learn this campaign among the candi dates has been conducted with fairness, and without that abuse we too often sec. We are glad to hear it, and hope each one, whether successful or not, will pull off his coat and work for the success of the ticket nominated. Marysville.— The Miner says the six months old infant of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Leiby was found dead in bed one morning recently. No cause given. Doctors tbo’t it might be heart disease... .A seven year old child of Simon Covey was scalded to death by receiving a push from an older child which caused it to fall backwards into a tob of boiling water. It died in a few hours... .Nothing further in regard to the murder committed there two weeks since. The Albia 'Onion says : “A serious ac cident occurred on Thursday of last week, in the southwest corner of Adams town ship, Wapello county. Mr. Wm. Honk, Jr., while standing on a load of hay which he was drawing from the field suddenly lost his balance and fell to the ground striking on the neck and shoulder. The concussion, and perhaps organic lesion, of the spinal cord, caused by the fall, was im mediately followed by paralysis, both of sensation and motion over the whole body excepting the head and neck. At last ac counts his condition was about the same as when first injured, so that his recovery is very doubtful.” Rtan. —A friend of ours, in whose word we have the utmost confidence, informs us that Robert Ryan's name was never used by the Liberals, with his consent. That in their insane desire to add names to their list they claimed everybody present at Davenport at their blow-out, that Mr. Ryan happened to be present, was by them put on their list, and a plaoe of prominence given him as member of their State Cen tral Committee. Our friend further in forms ns that Mr. Ryan, on learning he was on the Committee at once notified the chairman to drop his name, and supposing that he would attend the matter, paid no more attention to it. ' „ The Dolly Varden party had a Conven- tion last Saturday to elect delegates to the Congressional Convention, and to nomi nate county officers. On motion the dele gates consisted of six Democrats and six Liberals, which looks, though wedded, as if they had bnt little confidence in each other, and as though the wedding was one of the “date-the-certificate back” kind.— The following were the delegates.- democratic. Wm. T. Smith, W. Cricket, B. R Per due, F. M. Davenport, G. B. McFall, C. Houtz. liberal. B. F. Lindly, Thos. Ballinger, W. E. Shepherd, I. FranKel, David Morgan, John Jeffords. Notwithstanding they met to nominate candidates for county officers, they, after much discussion, concluded to postpone their nominations until after our primary that they might “take advantage of any soreheadedness” as they expressed it.— Their hopes in this direction will be dashed. : Tns Southwestern. —The lowa City Prett of the 7th says : ‘ Ground was bro ken in the English river valley yesterday, on the lowa Southwestern, and to day a hundred men are making the dust fly there. At last the money and iron are all ready, and there will be seen some of the fastest railroad building ever seen in lowa. The grading between this city and Clinton is done, all but a few days work, and English valley is almost fit to lay track on without touching spade or scraper to it. Our citi zens may well congratulate themselves upon the long delayed realization of their ardent hope in this good road.” The Republican says: “Mr. Hinckley has given Engineer Irish instructions to put all the men and teams he can raise to work on the Chicago, Omaha and St. Joe rail road, and Mr. Irish is now organizing his forces in the English valley, and has al ready graded quite a piece of the line. This we feel sure is but the beginning which will soon resu It in giving us our long sought competing line. The friends of the Muscatine Western are throwing ev ery obstacle possible in the way of our work, but that is.useless. They should be allowed to build their road if they can, and we ours. They say our road is nothing but blow, we believe theirs is in its further prosecution, but wait and see. The one that has the most blow in it will soon blow out. We are confident that will not be our line. Every man that wants work for himself or team can now find it in the val ley of the English river.” Fatal, Accident. —The Eddyville Ad vertiter has the following account of a mel ancholy accident which happened near Bridgeport, Monroe county, on last Mon day morning. A couple of young men from Valparaiso, Ind., one named Keeler, the other Galbreath, had been out in Ne braska looking at the country and were on their return home, traveling in a two-horse wagon. While coming down the hill just beyond Bridgeport, Keeler - driving the team and Galbreath walking behind the wagon, Galbreath called to Keeler to stop till be could get his shot gun out of the wagon to shoot a rabbit. Keeler stopped the team, and the next instant heard the discharge of the gun and bis comrade fall. He got out of the wagon and went to him, but found him dead. It appears that the gun was in the rear end of the wagon, the muzzle pointing back, and that ke took hold of the muzzle and in drawing it out toward him the hammer caught on some thing which discharged it. It was a double barrelled shot gun, one barrel of which was discharged, the contents entering the side of the face and head, tearing one jaw entirely away, producing instant death. The body was conveyed to the house of Mr. Pricket at Bridgeport, where an in quest waa held by J. B. Gray, Esq., acting Cor on or * at which the above facts were elicited. The jury returned a verdict of death “by the accidental discharge of a gun in his own bands.’’ The deceased was aged 23 or 24. The body was forwarded by express to his parents. Mr. Keeler was as might be supposed very much afflicted by the sudden death of his friend and com rade in a strange land, but displayed firm ness and fortitude in tbe discharge of th« painful duty of caring for the remains, in which he was assisted by citizens of Bridge port and of this city. This is bat another instance of the fatal molts of carelessness in handling fire-arms. Confirmation Day.— Tuesday was Confirmation Day with the Catholics at this place. The Bishop from Dubuque, and priests from Albia and Ottumwa were present and assisted Father Melone in the ceremonies. A large number took the white veil, and two the black veil. • Judge Lindly, in a private communi cation, blows us up for saying that Jasper county in the Judicial Convention should have dropped him and the delegates scat tered to their second choices, and asks why that county any more than other counties. We answer, first, because Lindly had the lowest vote, except when the delegations were playing. It standing Lindly 16, Blanchard 17, Lacey 18 %, McJunkin2o%; second, he never had any actual strength except one vote outside his own delega tion, and being already on the bench, it appeared that if he had any undeveloped strength it would have been apparent in the course of 162 ballots. Eds. Herald. — l have a little joke on friend Welch that is too good to be lost. While traveling in this county not long since on business, I called at a farm house to make some inquiries, and having an oc casion to refer to an article in the llkjlald I asked the lady of the house if they took the Herald. Her husband not being in, she said they did not, but said they took an Oskaloosa paper. Said I, “What one? the Evangelist f ” Not thinking that they would be taking the Leader , for -1 knew what her husband’s politics were. She said, “No, sir, it is the Reform Leader .” “Why,” said I, “I thought your husband was a Republican !” “Yes,” says she, “indeed he is.” “That is not a Republican paper." “No, I see it is not, we have not been taking it long. I was reading it the other night, and I discovered what it was, and I said to my husband, “I thought you said this was a Republican newspaper'?” “Well,” says he, “the editor said it was.” My first thought was that if it was neces sary to use deception to get those great and glorious truths before the people, that the Leader proclaims of the great refbrma tion, when will the deoeption and corrup tion stop in that new party ? I suppose they would say when we get the control of the government. lam aflraid nor f-ALI T. F. Fire.—Harrington’s Foundry Burn ed. —Loss $5,000. —Last Tuesday night about midnight, our citizens were aroused by the cry of fire, and ringing of bells, caused by the burning of Harrington’s Foundry, near the Central Depot. As near as we could learn, the fire was burst ing from the roof when the alarm was given. It caught from the “core oven” used for drying cores, in which a fire was left that night, and was first discovered by a son of Mr. Ayres, who saw itjustasitwas bursting through the roof. The building was a new one, erected last fall, and Mr. H. had every thing arranged in good shape. The blow falls heavily upon him, being a poor man with all he had interested in his business and no insurance. He estimates that $5,000 will hardly replace his loss, as all his patterns, tools, machinery, every thing, was destroyed but the engine and blower. The engine being in a little room adjoining but cornering with the main building was saved by hard work on the part of the crowd gathered. For a time Seevers* Foundry and Machine Shop, on the same lot, was in imminent danger; and but for the recent rains no doubt the fire would have The loss falls heavily on the town as well as on Mr. H. for he had by his hard work and untiring j : energy built up an establishment that was an honor and credit to our town, and < which was turning out some as good work as can be done any place. We hope our citizens will aid Mr. H. in rebuilding, at once, that his loss may tall as lightly as possible. A subscription, to be repaid by him in work at some future time after he : shall be re-established, would probably re alize more than any other method. : .-** i There are many pleasant experienced had, while floating down the stream of time ; one of which was od last Wednes day the seventh inst. By invitation of Miss Eliza Pickerell, the Mission Sabbath School of our city under the superinten dency of Mr. Parker, was invited to par ticipate in a picnic in the grove of Mr. Pickerell on his farm two and a halt miles north of the city. At an early hour the children met at the Normal Bchool House where the good friends from the West Centre District met them with teams to convoy them the scene ot festivities. Af ter a pleasant ride, they all arrived safe and were happily greeted by the kind friends in waiting, including the members of a school under the superintendency of the kind hostess, and a school in pro gress in the West Centre District. It would have rejoiced the heart of any one to see the joy displayed by the children, who, free from restraint, enjoyed them selves as only children can. But this was not all: under the shade of the magnifi cent grove, was a table nearly one hun dred feet in length spread with all the dainties of the season, and groaning under the weight of many, many good things.— In due time the bell rang and in an orderly manner the little ones repaired to refresh the inner man. After, partakingjof a hearty repast they all assembled to hear addreses, which on account of brevity were listened to with patience and interest. Being then left free to enjoy themselves, the remain der of the day was spent in pleasure, and in due time all repaired to their respective homes, well pleased with the bounties and courtesies extended. Too much credit cannot be given to Miss Pickerell, and oth ers associated with her in this display of Christian benevolence in thus furnishing such bountiful supplies of and accomodations to the mission childten of our city, and in sending the surplus of pro visions (which was not small) to be dis tributed among those in need. * Money to loan on long time to se cure Homes to the Homeless. — $1,500 to be loaned out every 30 days during the next 7or 8 years by the Oskaloosa Build ing and Loan Association, fiist loan to be made as soon as all of the stock is taken, which is being done as fast as the workings and advantages of the Association are made known. This Association was or ganized a few weeks since under the statu tory provisions of lowa, and for the sole object in view of benefltting its members and thereby building up the town upon the principle that what benefits the labor ing class benefits tbe whole. Any person who is of age and a resident of Mahaska county, may become a member of the As sociation by signing tbe By-Laws and taking stock. The stock is composed of 1590 shares, each share representing S2OO to be paid for in monthly payments ofsl,oo per share. No member can take more than ten shares, hence if he be a tenant and pays SIO.OO per month rent, he cart, under the rules of this Association, with the same money, buy or build a better house, and at the end of seven or eight years be that much belter off ; in the meantime he is not moving about from “pillar to post,” but living in his own house, planting his own vine and fruit tree, and livin gin the en joyment of bis own home. We desire to call the attention of every member of so ciety who has no home, but wants one, or has a home encumbered which he wishes to free, say to him this Association can help you out, and that it is nqt so much benefit to any one of Us members as it is to this class, arid was gottetf'up by bs in corporators for the object and purposes above stated. Tbe plan has been thor oughly tried In other cities and States, and proven to be a success. Copies of the By laws can be had by calling on the Secreta ry, Mr. Lindley, at the Ist National Bank, or any one of tbe incorporators, all of whom are ready to give information, an swer all questions, &c., with reference to this Association, to persons who may de sire to know more about it. 0. 0, H.

Victimized.— A certain young man who flourishes as lord and knight over the var nish pot and brush, for a certain furniture and upholstering firm on Main-st., became very much chagrined and surprised one day last week. It happened in this wise : Accidentally getting some stain on his shirt front, he endeavored to remove the same by pouring on a quarter of a pint of turpentine. O horrors, dundcr und blixen ! It had struck in, and was consuming his breast. The last we saw of our young friend he was rushing up the street to wards the Galt House for a change of linen and a little sweet oil. * THE COUNTY IN WHICH WE LIVE. SCOTT TOWNSHIP. Last week the country man of the Her ald found himself looking over this town ship. Its east line is five miles west of Os kaloosa ; it joins Jefferson township on the south, and Black OakTp. on the north. It is a well settled, well cultivated, and all together a prosperous township. On the south and along the Des Moines river, is seen some very fine bottom lands. These are in cultivation, and produce wonderful ly. The river, which cuts ofl a portion of the south-east corner, spoils a strip on the west side of about two miles wide for farm ing purposes, it being very much broken, and covered with timber, which is very good, and of course essential to the good of the country. There are also in various parts of the township, tracts of brush land. This, however, being good soil, will event ually be brought into cultivation, and help swell the aggregate of Mahaska’s co rn and wheat total. bhllefontainb on the Des Moines, sounds well, don’t it ? This very respectable village is on the west side of the river, and from a distance looks very neat as it nestles on the hill side with a background of timber foliage. It is apparently a thriving little place. Its glory though, faded when the old stage line was withdrawn, and railroads usurped the travel, and until a railroad breaks the monotony, It must expect to continue on in its lazy, every day life. A fond hope pervades the Bellefontaine mind that the Southwestern will eross at or near this point. A pole with the Grant and Wilson flag flying from its heavenward end, de notes the political status of the neighbor hood. The business of the place is done in part by Thissell, Berry & Co., who deal in general merchandise, make harness and boots and shoes. Their,work as I saw, will compare favorably with that.of Oska loosa. J. M. Benscoter keeps drugs, med icines, &c., but as the people will persist in keeping well, his trade is necessarily light. E. A. Boyer & Son, have probably thebest stock in the town, and do a good business. Just on the village edge is found Geo. Foreman’s mill. George’s name Is to him capital, and his flour is also capital, eelling in the market for a little jo papers, 1 'heard the chiefs bell c inkle rather excitedly. The ser- ( jeant answered it. g ‘Send Morse to me,’ next reached ny ear through the half open door. Uefore the sergeant could repeat i he order, I had passed him and was 1 jy the side of the chief. J ‘Sit down, Mr. Morse.’ he said, as ; e continued making some notes in he register. I obeyed, and anxiously waited his ommands. ‘I have a singular case before me j iis morning,’ he began ‘and I am t bout to try your ingenuity to unrav- q 1 it.’ My expectation was aroused. ‘On the 20th of last mouth the lion lr. F gave a baP at his mansion i Michigan avanue, which was at snded by all of the elite of the city.’ of COfi?VPJfhVsTfojV,Ju nnuiu SO SHOrt' a distance of the Oskaloosa mines, it would ►not pay to open a bank simply to accom modate the country. A railroad passing through will have a tendency to develop the coal interest. ST ONE. Excellent building stone is found on the river ; also in other places in the township, all of which will be found useful as the conn /fills up and improvements are added. GOOD CORNER. The northwest corner is probably the best part ol the township, the country be ing much less broken than in other parts. Along the main thoroughfares, of which there are two east and west, are found very good farms, with buildings in accord ance with the “get up” ©f the owner. Some farms have first rate buildings, while oth ers in the same vicinity are poor concerns. Of course this cannot be attributed to any thing but enterprise, or want of it in the respective owners. Olivet church—Pres byterian—-a very neat house, stands on one of those main roads. In this north-west corner they have an independent school district, without the large house generally found in independent school districts; however, that will come in good time. POLITICS. That Grant and Wilson will carry the township there is not the least shadow of a doubt. Shepherd, of Oskaloosa, says that “Scott will give Greeley 50 majority.” When asked to give a reason for the faith that was in him, he said : “Why, there’s old Doc. Boyer, he’s Greeley, and there’s his son, and there’s Doctor (?) Scott, they’re Greeley, and there’s—th-there’s”—yes, there’s three of the fifty ; go on Shepherd, fill it up, but don’t count much on the Democratic element, or it will be reckon ing without the host. I found one man who said he was going to vote for Greeley just because he (Greeley) was “bull-headed enough to oppose woman suffrage.” Said this loud mouthed fellow: “My mother was a woman’’—now I was a little sur prised at that, for as I surveyed the man carefully, I believed I saw before me a proof of the Darwin theory, only the de scent was now retrograding. “My mother was a woman, and I think too much of a woman to help put a curse upon her. I don’t believe women have any right to suf frage, and if I had a woman (thank God he has’nt) I’d make her suffer if she wanted suffrage.” Another man supports H. G., because his stereotyped advice “Go West” ‘has done more to build up the western country than any other influence.” Yes. AN ACCIDENT occurred in the township last Thursday, by which Rev. Mr. Jones, of English set tlement, Marion Co., and wife were severe ly bruised. They were traveling the road, having a light buggy and team, and came up with a loaded wagon, driven by one Atchison. Not desiring to drive so slow as was necessary to continue behind him, Mr. Jones attempted todrivs around, when Atchison put whip to his team, frightening the other team, causing them to run away, and throw the occupants out of the buggy. There is something so small and unprinci pled in such an act that I will notcomment upon it. Every decent person condemns such conduct, and the law, if used, pun ishes it. Among ti e large farmers of Scott I found Mr. Albert Phillips, who owns 680 acres, and farms nearly 500. Ho came here 27 years ago, entering the land he still owns. His son has a new house just west. I re mained over night with Mr. P.; he says “I don’t like the Hekaid’b politics, bnt I wouldn’t do without it for twice its cost.” A rain Oh Saturday morning gladdened the farmers’ hearts, and stopped my news gathering in Soett. G. R. h- 7‘ 7TT What has become of that petition to th« President asking him to send troops down South to protect the colored voters. I guess there is no need of it since the Pri mary election. *** Watermelons.— Our friend J. S. Bar nett of Des Moines Tp., left us two huge watermelons, his annual contribution to the Herald. They were as delicious as nectar —just such as that old radical al ways raises. POWESHIEK AND MAHASKA COR RESPONDENCE. Suggarr Groove Tp. July 32 1872.

THEEOFFULUSB BLACKSTROPER. Oskaloosa, Aug. Ist, 1872. Sol. Tutewater, to his Cousin Theeoffulluss. Dear Thee. Your ankshus letter was received in du Lime and in ansur I will stait that pollytix up in Shooger Grove aint a patching too what they air down hear. Up their you air aul sich a pack of durned fools that you will beleave enny thing, and aul we have too du is to tell you who to holler fur, and you will too woust kom mense squeeling. Now down hear that that thing is getting a leetle to thin and won’t pan out, fur some of our fellers have got so that they kin reed, and konsequent ly they know that old Horrass Grealey is an old infernal abolishunist, who has sed more meen things about us than aul the wrest of the black Republicans put togeth er. To be sure most of what he sed is true, but the worst thing you kan du fur a meen man is too tell the truth on him. Telling lyes is ba<l enuff, but when you git down too thee naked truth it hurts. Horrass Greeley is just creatiu about thee same amount of excitement that thee Devil did when he got intu thee hogs, and I recon it will have mity neer the same endin, fur whereas thee hogs got ashamed of thee devil and went off and drownded there selvcs in the water.

August 13,1872. Eds. Herald The good people of our little village were treated to a joint discus sion last evening. W. 8. Kenworthy for our standard bearers, Grant and Wilson, and David Morgan for Greeley, Brown & Co. Kenworthy spoke one hour, in which time he showed in a masterly manner what, the Republican party had done dur ing the past ten years, and for a few mo ment he tried to paint the acts of the Dem ocratic party, Our friend Morgan, then proceeded to show what a few of the rebel leaders accomplished in laying waste the Southern States, actually forgetting that he was making a Liberal speech. During his remarks he accused the Administration of making several blunders, but he failed to convince any one that he wa s right and the great Republican party wrong. The meeting held until eleven o’clock and with three rousing cheers for Grant and Wil son, adjourned to meet again this even ing to organize a Tanner’s Club. Yours for the right, L. J. Mosher, Sec’y pro tem.

The show of fine cattle will exceed any exhibition heretofore had by the Society. In fact the stock department promises to be full. In the floral depart ment our Fairs heretofore have not been excelled. The same may be said of vegeta bles, grains and domestic manufactures. We expect this Fair to exceed them all.

The meeting was called to order by John Sims. On motion Richard Henry was appoint ed chairman and George Craig Secretary, James Priestly, Assistant Secretary. After the adoption of the Constitution and By-Laws of the Club, those present enrolled as members of the Club by sign ing their names to the laws adopted. The first two sections of the Constitu tion are as follows: Ist. We, the nndersigned, colored citizens of Oskaloosa, lowa, do hereby agree to nntte in an organization, the objects of which shall be the maintenance and support of the Constitution and By-Laws of the United States and of our own State, and the earnest support of the principles and platform of the national Republican party. 2d, This organization shall be known as the Colored Grant and Wiiaon Club, of Oskalooaa, lowa. The officers of the Club elected are : Ibzen Garvin, President ; Z. T. Bush, Vice President; John Taylor, Vice Presi dent ; R. 8. Oickens, Treasurer ; James Priestly, Secretary. Executive Commit tee : Wm. Priestly, Lewis Dery, Lewis Clark, John Sims, Richard Henry, George Craig, J. W. Allen, Wm. Tiffin. The Club then resolved to meet again at Union Hall, August 15,1872, at half past 7 o’clock, p. m., and the Corresponding Secretary was instructed to inform the Des Moines State Register of the organization of the club. The following declaration was then passed. Whebeas, Senator Sumner baa adviaed the colored votera of the country to vote for Horace Greeley, the candidate of the Democratic party for Prealdent, Therefore, we, the colored citizena and votera of Oakalooaa, in convention aaaembled do de clare : let. That while we acknowledge and grateful ly remember the paat services of Senator Sumner in the cause of human liberty, yet we decline to follow him into the ranka of the Democratic par ty, for we cannot forget, that every effort made for the abolition of slavery, and every step taken towards the enfranchisement of the colored peo ple of this country, and their elevation to the rights of citizenship, has been met by the most bitter opposition bv the Democratic party, and we do not see on wnat principle of reason or com mon sense, the coloiea men shall turn their backs upon the Republican party, and support those who have been their enemies. 2d. That we have implicit confidence in the integrity and patriotism of President Grant. We believe him to be a faithful and true friend to the colored man, that as Chief Executive of the na tion he has faithfully executed the laws, and es peclally do we feel grateful to him for his faithful execution of the law or Congress, passed for the protection of the loyal people of the south against the secret clans and combinations of rebels, or ganized for the mnrder and destruction ot the colored people of the south. 3d. That we wonld earnestly impress npon onr colored brethren their duty to stand by the Re publican party, its principles and ita organization lor to that party we are indebted under God, for our liberty, and our constitutional guarantees of civil and political rights, as citizens of the Re public ; and totbat party alone are we to look for the full protection in the future ; and having full confidence in ita triumphant success at the coming election, we pledge ourselves to do all in our power to aid in the consummation of that victory, which will be to the poor colored man of the South, a guarantee of peace and protection.

Type Setting. —Yesterday was the ap pointed day for the type setting race.— Two prizes, one a solid silver composing stick, the other a gold pin, were offered by ono of the Des Moines Typograhhical Uni ons for the two best compositors in tbe State. Two of our printers, Jno. 8. Nich ols, and Geo. R. Lee, entered the lists with the following result: Nichols set 1561 ems, Lee 1560. Time of work one hour. We do not know how near they have come to the prizes, but venture to say that there will be few better records. Below we give the entire amount of type set by Mr. N. Ham Duke. It is an unfortunate fact, without at tempting to say where the responsibility for it rests, or that printers are worse thaa any other class of mechanics, that very meny of our best workmen are at times addicted to intemperate habits, which they can best indulge in large cities, rath er than in small towns or inland places, and that the necessities of large city em ployers are so great as to compel them to pay the highest wages, and put up with irregularities on the part of workmen, which! country printers need not and would not tolerate. H. Taylor. The demand for first-class workmen, either in the press or composing room, is far greater than the supply, and city em ployers, by reason of sharp competition, and the educated tastes of their patrons, such as railroad men, large dealers, manu facturers, etc., are compelled, as a matter of self preservation, to employ the best talent attainable at whatever cost, so that good printers readily command better prices than country printers are willing to pay. Add to this fact the enticements and allurements of city life to young men, who easily earn large sums, and the rea son is plain to be seen why they will sac rifice a permanent good to present enjoy ment, for there can be no shadow of doubt that a really artistic printer would, in the end, save far more money, live a happier and better life, and open the way .for a far better future in every light, by taking a good steady position in a country village or young growing city at sls or $lB per week, than he could possibly hope to, surrounded by the thousand temptations of the city, at a salary twice as large. These are the principal reasons, among very many others we might enumerate, had we time and space, why it is so diffi cult for country employers to get “first class workmen.” And until that good day for the best interest of our art shall arrive, when a strict system of appren ticeship is insisted upon, both by employ ers and the printers’ unions of the coun try, and the class of printers before re ferred to can eee their own ultimate best interests clearly, the best plan for coun try employers will be to select none but intelligent, quick-witted, good boys, with an inherent love for the trade, and edu cate them carefully, in a painstaking way, and not, as is too often the case, without giving the boy the careful instruction he deserves and should have, and make it for his best pride aDd interest to stay in the country and not fly to the city as soon as he has a mere smattering of the first rudi ments, and set himself up for a full fledged “jour.” It is an unfortunate fact, without at tempting to say where the responsibility for it rests, or that printers are worse than any other class of mechanics, that very many of our best workmen are at times addicted to intemperate habits, which they can best indulge in la INTERESTING READING MATTER. Caution.— Every genuine box of Dr. McLane's Li vie Pills bears tb e s ignature of Fleming Bbob. Pittsburgh, Pa., and their private U. 8. stamp,— E3?~“Take no other.’ 1 The market is full of imi tations. It is the popular verdict that people who have been accustomed to the uselof bitters or cor dials are obliged, eventually, to resort to Mc- Lane’s Liver Pills for permanent relief. n3OmC Avaunt, Indigestion.— Tbe Charter Oak Stove is tbe most Interesting and important feat vre in the domestic economy; for it fills the the house with warmth, the table with good cheer and prevents that dreary aspect and I indigestible meals that brings sourness of temper, discom fort and dissatisfaction. An invaluable remedy for emigrants and per sons traveling or temporarily visiting malarious districts, is to be found in 1 Simmons’ Liver Regu lator. If taken occasionally it will prevent chills and fevers, and injurious effects from change of water. Triumphant tor Twenty Years.— Moie than twenty yearß ago the Mustang Liniment made its debut in the West. Its cures of the various ex ternal diseases of horses and cattle, astonished the planters and farmers of the Ohio and Missis sippi valleys, and a demand for it sprung up which necessitated its manufacture on an exten sive scale. Soon the discovery was made, that it was a grand specific for toothache, rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, earache, and other ;external ail ments of mankind. Then it was tried a as heal ing, pain-killing application, in cases of outward injury, such as cuts, burns, braises, spasms, Ac., and was found equally serviceable. The fame of the new remedy for some of the most painful ills that afflict makind and the lower animals, spread rapidly, and Mustang Liniment soon took rank in every State and Territory of the Union as a stan dard care.
