(Vdar Rapids enforces the Sunday law aud arrests all cigar dealers, clothing men and livery stable keepers who pursue their business on Sunday A notification that tin- law would be enforced in this city, caused quite a ripple not long since. The Laws. —Believing that many if not all of our readers will endorse it, we hive decided to publish from week to week as space will permit, such laws of the 17th General Assembly as iu our judgment are of general Interest to our readers. Several wagons loaded to the guard with the Standard man’s “public beneficiary,” “ source of revenue,” “nucleus of a town,” etc., passed through our city Monday on their way to Missouri, and will soon be w arping the natives middlings like agreen rat hide on a hot skillet. The new firm of Mattison & Wray are now in full operation, and present to the j*eople an entirely new stock of groceries, and other goods usually kept by grocers. Both partners are well known and will have many visits from old and former ac quaintances. Head their advertisement elsewhere. The White Oak folks were up en mats* last Thursday to answer to the order of court iu reference to Urn late whipping scrape of that neighborhood. They waived examination and returned to their pomes,to await the next turn in the affair. The annoyance caused them was consider able, as all were busy on their farms, aud we apprehend the eud is not yst. , _ .jj# The Simpson charge folks will give an ice cream sociable at their church to-mor row evening. Everybody invited. Remember to notice Siebel &, Co’s pri ces on flour. They give fair rates and have put it on sale at all the leading gro ceries. Am article headed “What shall the har vest be” does not appear this week for the reason that it is too long for practical use in any newspaper. The Eddyville Advertiser says: “Mrs. O’Hara, of Oskaloosa, and her beautiful little twin girls, as near alike as two peas, are visiting Mrs. F. M. Epperson. We are in receipt of the handsomest line of card board for business cards ever brought to the city. Moresque cards, a new novelty. Call and see them. To-morrow, Friday evening, is the reg ular communication of Tri-luminar lodge. Election of officers will be made. Every brother should be in attendance. The Staiidard says our county treasurer collected $66,600 on taxes for February. That’s good, and we presume now a fel low can get the cash on county warrants. Rev. Banner Mark, presiding elder, will preach at Simpson church next Sunday night. Rev. W. F. Cowles will go to Ot tumwa to take charge ot a quarterly meet Ing. N. J. Smith & Co., a sto ry for the consideration of our readers. They are determined to put goods down to bottom prices, and have an immense stock. Bead what they say. Wapello County.—At Ottumwa a child less than 2$ years old, swallowed a large dose of morphine that it 9 sick mother, a Mrs. McCoy, had left on a window sill, and despite the efforts of the doctors, it proved fatal. Lucas County.—At Chariton a short time since Jas. McFaddeu was stopped by footpads who demanded his money, in stead of which James pulled his revolver and peppered away at them, unfortunately driving them off Instead of killing them. Last Friday as the 3 o’clock passenger train on the Central was coming in Gerome Gossage, sou of the landlord of the Na tional House, attempted to step on & car, but missing his step was thrown to the ground severely, and bruised considera bly. He fortunately saved himself from falling under the train. Plants and Flowers. —Amos Kemble has his catalogue of plants and flowers io press at this office and it will soon ready for distribution. He has made large ad ditions and importations to his stock, and is prepared to All all orders as well as any one can, whether in this or other States. Dont send your orders uway be fore you have seen his catalogue. T. J. Reigart, assistant clerk of the last House of Representatives has been ap pointed to a position in the Fort Madison penitentiary under Warden McMillan. That Jack will give satisfaction to all con cerned and till the place with credit, all who know him will admit He is a No. 1 man, and we are glad to learn of his suc cess. Last Monday morning J M .lanncy re ceived a despatch conveying the sorrow ful intelligence of the death of his broth er-in-law, Dr. M. H. Keever, on Sunday morning at his home near Waynesvillc, Ohio. He had been for some years aftiict with heart disease, and died very sudden ly. Many of our Ohio readers will remem ber him, and mourn his death. At a meeting of the directors of the Consolidation Coal Co., held last week, the former officers were elected, to-wit: E. Clark, president; H. W. McNeill, superin tendent; W. A. McNeill, secretary; Tom Heaight, treasurer; W. A. Lindly, cashier. K. S. Finkbine and J. K. Graves were added to the board. This is a strong or ganization, and the officers elect will as heretofore give general satisfaction to all concerned, and push the work to its maxi mum limit. At his old Tricks.— Now that he is through serving his country in the legisla ture, C. S. Wilson goes back to his old position as city editor of the Register. Now look out for more salamander boys, and such pretty stories as have their orig in in his fertile brain Welker Given filled the place with credit to himself, but all readers of the Register will welcome Wil son hack again. One feels more at home with a writer when you know him, and know he knows you know him. Th* Courier of New Hampton treats a certain class of men to the following lec* ture, which we endorse from similar ex periences: “A newspaper may puff, and laud, and extol any man to the seventh heaven, and the man all the time imagines that it is the newspaper’s business. But the moment the editor ventures to brush the fur the wrong way, be it ever so little, all the former good words go for naught, and he rushes into the sanctum with fire In his eyes and an order on his lips that he wants that thing made right.” Forest Ckmktkrv. —We have taken It upon ourselves to raise a fund for the pur* pose of building a good substantial plank walk from Ellen street to the cemetery, and as far as we have canvassed have met with fair encouragement, but still lack over one hundred dollars of the required amount. This is of no more interest to us than to a great many others, but we look upon it as a public necessity, and hope all who have friends burled there will come up and sign for whatever amount they feel able to give, and help this matter along. Died —At Buford, D. T., March 21, 1878. Stella Emily, infant daughter of Walter A. and Mary E. Jordan, of Ot umwa, lowa. The bereaved parents are closely related to the Herald family, and none but those who have felt their very heart strings torn asunder by the death of a darling babe can truly sympathize with these sorely tried and bleeding hearts— their buffering made more intense by having to consign the loved form to a grave in a far away and desolate land, al most unknown except to the prowling savage and howling wolves. We see that a number of our exchanges are publishing the names of those fellows who have taken the paper, got in debt from one to four dollars, and then left the country, leaving the publisher in the lurch for his pay. We have about SSOO in such accounts that we have a mind to ventilate; some too of those who have not moved away. By this we do not mean those who are now taking the paper, and are hard up, but those who apparently with malice aforethought intend to defraud us. Fast Yocno Mam —Cigars, fine cloth ing, fast hones, etc., cost money, and when young men who work for a stipulated salary indulge in such expensive luxuries, people wonder where the money comes from, and they dont often miss it when they guess that the fast boys’ Angers dip unlawfully into their employer's till. Ce dar liapids has a case in point. One Ed ward Dobbs, a post office clerk, got to liv ing fast, and found his income inadequate to supply iiis extrayagant desires, so hs took to rifling letters, and found the U. B. detectives sharper than be was, conse queotly he now languishes in jail. A Dastardly Act.— Last Fridsy as the 3 o’clock passenger train on the Central was entering the cut just south of town, some miscreant shot into one of the coach es, the ball pasting through the car, and within a few inches of two gentlemen who were sitting by the window shot through. Whether done accidentally or purposely is unknown, but those persons who are in the habit of shooting promiscously in that locality had better beware. Not long since a coupling pin was thrown through a car window, breaking the glase and dashing it into a lady’s face so severely as to cut it badly. Whoever it la doing this work will some dsy get csught and pay a evsre penalty. • Mrs, J. L. Moore, the fashionable mil' liner of the northeast corner, has an ad vertisement and local in this issue which all the ladles will be interested in reading. A Suggestion.—lf every reader of the Herald would make it a point to say to our merchants when they go shopping or m%ietlng, “I saw your advertisement in the"HKRALD, and want to see the articles you mention,” they would be doing both themselves, the merchants, and ourselves a fkvor. Try it a few time* and see. The closing scene came at last after much suffering and patient waiting, and last Sunday afternoon, April 7, Miss Jen nie McNeilan passed into rest. A beauti ful life ended, a work incomplete, a harp unstrung and a song unsung; all too soon for those In whose hearts she had woven her affection with a strong chain. A household mourns and a community sym pathizes, yet the rest, the sleep of the one gone is not broken or disturbed, nor will it be until all are called at that great day when parents will meet in loving greeting long gone children, and the redeemed of earth sing with the redeemed of heaven. The funeral occurred on Tuesday last, and many friends followed to the cemetery all that was mortal of one they much loved. Scarcely a paper comes to this office hut contains an account of some boy getting crushed by the cars, the result of playing around them. Several eases of the kind have occurred in this city, yet the boys persist in the practice. Do parents en deavor to stop this kind of work? If so their efforts are not very successfnl here, as every train moving over our railroads has upon it boys who have no business there. Indeed, so much of a nuisance has this become that the passengers are frequently seriously inconvenienced by the crowds of boys and young men stand ing on the platforms stealing a ride. We understand the marshal has determined to arrest every one so found hereafter, and the superintendents of roads have notified him that they will endorse such action and assist in every manner possible to bring to justice all violators of the law. Valuable Books. —ln these times when so many men are demonstrating (by cheap talk) their ability to manage the national finances, though a majority of them have utterly failed with their own, a good book on the subject, emanating from a trust worthy and reliable source is worthy of careful study; indeed is a necessity to ev ery one who would he posted. Such are two that we have just received from the publishing house of Henry Holt, N. Y. “Money,” by Prof. Francis A. Walker is a work eminently adapted to the times, and should he in the hands of every person who desires to be well posted in monetary matters. Contains 559 pages, price $4.50. “Sumner’s History of American Curren cy.” 391 pages, price $3.00, is another val uable work which should be upon the shelf of every thinking man. We should be glad to know that either or both of these hooks were being extensively read by the people. Riobt Face and Left Face.— This is what came into our mind a few days since when a crowd of loafers and some others who ought to have more self-re spect were standing in a row, leaning up against the side of a building on one of our principal street corners, when a lady came along, and, although there was noth ing about her general appearance to attract uttention, more than that she was a woman —somebody’s wife, sister, daugh ter, or mother—yet every head in that crowd turned slowly “right face” as she passed, every eye leveled straight at her, and followed her until she turned the cor ner out of sight. Soon a young girl came along from the opposite direction, and she too seemed to hold a magnet in her hands that turned the entire row of loafers “left face" and held them there until she was out of range. Such conduct is, to say the least, ungentlemanly, and there were men in this “row” who would take offence, and justly too, should they see others staring members of their families out of counte nance. as did they stare at those two women. Most women like to be admired (so we have been told) but no modest girl or woman wants to run a gauntlet of loaf ers who have no respect for themselves or anybody else, every time she has an errand on the square. If this reflects your photo graph, we hope you may feel sufficiently ashamed of your conduct to prompt you to have more respect for your mother’s sex in the future. Home Seekers, Attention.—The Her ald goes to nearly every State in the Union, and in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York has many readers. Among the many who every week peruse Its columns it is possible there may lie some who are about to seek a home farther west. To such we have a word to say. Before you locate in any section of the country do not fail to give Mahaska county a visit. It Is situated only about 100 miles west of the Mississippi river, has a population of nearly 23,000, Is settled with the very best class of people; its land is of the best in the State; It has an abun dance of good timber and coal; is well watered, and possesses every requisite for a happy and prosperous home. Churches and school houses abound, and no adult or child Is deprived of church or school privileges for any reason whatever. In the county are numerous towns, afford ing facilities of trade close to the home farm. Oskaloosa, the county seat, is noted the State over for its temperate and moral element, and is a live, wide-awake town, always ready to respond to any call made upon it for the advancement of country or city. Three railroads traverse the county and furnish ready means of shipment of produce or stock. Good improved farms or wild land (though the latter is scarce) cau be bought as cheap as anywhere in the State. The county improvements which fall so heavily early settlers of a county are here all completed, and with a trifling exception paid for. Iron bridges over the rivers at all crossing points; firm stone grades across the river bottoms, and well appointed roads are all ready at hand and the new comer is not taxed to construct them, as is the case when set tling in a new county not provided with such conveniences. Remember when you come west to make it a point to see this county. A. O. U. W.—The lodge of this order organized in this city not long since is in excellent condition and rapidly increasing. Additions are made at each regular meet ing, and as some may not be Ailly advised of its object, we give a brief resume of its history and work: This order was intro duced In this country about twelve years ago, and In that time has become very popular ■ The first lodge was instituted in lowa in ’74. There are now 554 lodges in the State with a total membership of about six thousand. The special object of the Order is to furnish its members with cheap and reliable life insurance, two thousand dollars being the amouut guaranteed at the death of eachjbrother who has attained the third degree, payable to whom he may direct. This premium is secured by an as sessment on all the members in the State. No more nor less than two thousand dol lars can be carried on the life of one mem ber, and the expense per year for this amount will rarely exceed seven dollars, which Is about the cost of one thousand dollars’ insurance lu mutual Insurance so cieties, and about one-third the cost of carrying one thousand in any of the old line companies. All applicants lor mem bership are required to pass a rigid medi cal examination. Besides the benefit of insurance, the Order provides for its mem bers many of the advantages given by oth er secret organizations, such as sick bene fits, the care and sympathy of brother members, etc. We have already given a list of the officers of Oskaloosa lodge, they with the other members are among our best citizens, and no man compromises his self-respect or position in any degiee by association with them. If you desire to become a member, consult Byron V. Ser vers, 11. L. Briggs. Col. Jno. Lolland, Rev* W. H. H. Plllsbury, W. A. Lindly, Dr. Callluger, C. T. Willard, or any one else yon know who is a member. Read Mrs. Millikiu’s locals about select school and rooms to rent. Levi Cook & Sou oiler you bargains in corn planters, cultivators, etc. Rube Whitaker & Co. offer you Hobby Horses, Croquet Sets and other articles too numerous to mention. Read local. C. T. Willard & Co., have a generation of small advertisements in this issue. Ev ery one is a description of what you want, and should receive your attention. Baldauf Bros, have a picture gallery in this issue about—well,'call ’em waist con densers. Of the dozen varieties they men tion no lady need be without a suitable squteze. Bead all about them in their adv. Reports are circulating that the K. & D. M. R. R. is to foe leased by the C. R. I. & P. R. R. How such a change would effect Oskaloosa it is difficult to determine. We hope, however, it will result in bringing the K. &*D. to this city, and Jestablisli a union depot south of the Central. Nioger Shooters. —Marshal Juo. Ream is doing a good thing in stopping the use of these nuisances as used by boys on our streets. Not long since two boys were seriously injured by being struck with shot thrown from them. One, a son of John Barr, was struck in the eye and near ly blinded. We hope the efforts to sup press them will be successful. Auditor Ross has just perfected a form for a delinquent tax book which is one of the most complete in the State, and put if on the market would doubtless meet with a rapid sale. Several such books are in use but none so comprehensive and practi cal as his. By its use there is no necessity for referring to the old tax books, every thing being found on it. li is made to carry four years delinquent tax. He will probably copyright it. J. M. Loughridge, Esq., for many years one of the best justices of the peace in this county, has resigned his office as such. What he contemplates doing we are not informed. He has filled the office with marked ability and always administered justice as near as was possible for man to construe the law. We trust the board of trustees in filling his place will find a man who will be as fair and impartial in his rulings. Many conflicting reports have been cir culated concerning the resignation of Hon. J. B. Grinnell as receiver of the Cen tral Railroad, and so many were his re signations and so many the appointments to fill the vacancy that one was led to be lieve that there were a host of Griunells and more than a multitude of receivers to this popular road. Now, however, comes the Register and says that the document of the court accepting his resignation and appointing his successor was filed in the office of the clerk of the U. S. Court last Saturday. The new receiver is Major 11. L. Morrill of whom the Register says: ‘•Major Morrill will be remembered by many of our readers as an old resident of Van Buren and Lee counties. He has an lowa residence of over twenty years' stundiiiK- He served for five years in the flrst lowa cavalry. After the war he engaged himself in the construction and operation of railroads. He was Superintendent of Construction of the St. Louis & Southeastern Hailway. He had charge of the entire construc tion of the Cairo & Vincennes Railroad, and in that he allowed so much taste and ability that in IS7B Judge Treat appointed him receiver of the property. He served in that capacity, and was attorney in fact for the trustees of the road for over three years. More recently Major -Mor rill has been and in feet resigns, the Superin tendency of the Minneapolis A St. Louis Rail way to accept this important trust which Judges Dillon and Love have seen fit to honor him with. There is no doubt but what the Judges have made a most excellent choice in this ap pointment and selected a man eminently <iuali tied for the position, and at the same time have guarded the best interests ef property.” It is of course impossible to guess what disposition the new receiver will make of the present efficient employes of the road, but it is probable there will be many changes. We trust, however, the changes will not be so sweeping as to deprive us the pleasure of meeting many of the old boys. Our Oskaloosa agent, Mr. A. J. Dirr, we hope will be kept just where he is, as he is giving general satisfaction to all who have business with him. S. S. Union. Oskaloosa, April 2, 78. The second quarterly session of the Os kaloosa Sabbath school Union met at the time and place chosen by the President. Devotional exercises the first half hour. Then proceeded with the following pro gramme : Opening address by Rev. A. J. Furman. “The Bible, —how to study it with refer ence to the lesson of each Sabbath.” This paper was exceedingly interesting and in structive and will be printed in full. Wednesday Morning, April 3. Association met pursuant to adjourn ment. Au essay, subject, “What should be the relation of a teacher to his class,” was read by Mrs. Sarah H. Morgan. The work of a Sabbath school teacher is primarily to win souls to Christ. In or der to do this effectually he must have a proper conception of sin and its ruinous consequences; that it is sin practiced by individuals and often by boys and girls that destroys the world’s peace, and he must know by a practical living experi ence that the only way of escape is reveal ed by the teachings of Gospel truths. Such a teacher where proper relations have been established between himself and pupils, has It in his power to so impress upon their minds and hearts these great truths that they will not be easily led away into infi delity in any of its modern specious forms by the enemies of Bible Christianity. Where the understanding has been en lightened by such instruction, the self pleasing declarations and opinions of finite man will not be so likely to lead them astray. While a teacher should have a high estimate of his own position and work, he must not presume to do all the work of the class, but he must skillfully bring into exercise during the recitation the knowledge of his pupils instead of making an over-use of his own. Small children will demand other plans, and call forth different gifts and attainments from those suited to adult classes. But the same principles should govern our actions. For whatever the grade, it is necessary for every teacher to have it distinctly under stood that he acknowledges Christ to he head in all things. If the teacher is careful to avoid all list lessness and indifference, his example will have a tendency to stimulate his pupils to a more lively attention. When a boy or girl shows a spirit of in attention at school, it may be generally in ferred that there is something wrong in the home education. The teacher who is alive to the peculiar advantages of his po sition, will find some way of becoming acquainted with the home training of such children, and will send into them intellec tual and moral influences whose ennobling effects will soon be apparent, and may be of lasting and widely extended benefit. This manifestation of a personal inter est in the individual, in his needs and struggles, certainly has its place in the Sabbath-school work, and will open the way most effectually to the hearts of the children. Incidental opportunities for association and labor, and occasions for friendly, in formal Intercourse should be wisely im proved. The lady teacher should be care ful to present a good example in her dress when she appears before her class. As the magnifying power of the glasses of a telescope aid the eye to discern the beau ties and grandeur of the heavenly bodies, so the sanctified life of the Christian teach er should be a standing invitation to his class, come magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Rev. J. E. Snowden resigned his posi tion as President. On motion of Mrs. T. T. Wright, Dr. Jessup was chosen to fill the vacancy. Next topic on the programme was a pa per, by Mr. H. 11. Beerley; subject, “The art of teaching by questioning.” MV. Seer ly being absent his essay was read by the President. It is impossible to convey to the reader in fhll the excellent advice and thought given in both the papers and the discussions that followed each, during the convention. After a short union meeting Wednesday night the association adjourned to meet the second Tuesday in June. J. E. Sxowdkn, President. Jennie Pickbell, Sec’y. Amos Kemble on Corn. Mn. Editors.— My little article on Stnw el’s evergreen corn, last week, has got me into trouble already with some farmers, who wanted to hold me to contract for canning their crop of corn, when I did not agree to a contract at all, but simply thought to show how a farmer could make one acre of sweet corn pay him from $25 to $46 per acre, providing lie could con tract at 2i eta per dozen. And I will further say, that it takes money to pre serve corn, and that I have not got a suf ficiency of it to do the amount of business to illustrate my meaning. I will say it takes $75 to furnish the cans, cases, and labels, to put up one acre of corn for mar ket, and then I pay $25 for the corn and $25 for the labor of preparing and put ting the com into the ca.lß. This you see takes $125 cash to put up one acre of corn, or $12,500 for one hundred acres of corn, (for which I think there is ready market.) This crop at $1.50 per doz. brings back $15,000. The 100 acres of corn brings the farmer $2500, and brings to the women and boy 9 that do the preparing of the corn, $2500, at 50cts per doz. It gives 5000 days employment to 100 persons — 50 days each, or $2500 each for 100 boys and women to spend in the month of Oc tober for boots, shoes and clothing that they would not otherwise have; (for it is the persons that are out of employment that work in the factory, and by this meau9 there might be many a dollar sav ed to the tax-payer.) Tumul t-this statement more definite I would say to preserve 100 acres of corn it will require SBOOO in cash to pay for tin, and the balance of the SI2OOO will go for labor and material at home. The question to be answered is, will the men who have the money to loan, take the se curities that are to he given, and give em ployment to the needy, by fostering home enterprise and industry, benefiting the needy, or will they not. I shall grow 25 acres of this corn myself, and 10 acres of tomatoes, and then I have my factory and machinery which cost me thousands of dollars, and I have not the $5,000 in ready cash that I need to do the amount of business to buy the farmer’s crops, and therefore you will excuse me from contracting until I get further aid. “The Bible" is squeezed out this week . Over Oes Moines River. Eds. Herald.— Our region is enjoying the “beautiful spring.” A vast acreage of wheat and oats haa been got in in good order, and promises fair. Some ere plow ing for corn. A few still growl of “hard times.” $2.00 for hogs, etc., etc., bu t I think we all ought to be thank ful for an unusual mild winter, and early spring, and for our exemption from pestilence. Truly wc have to endure R. B. Hayes’ and his calamitous concilia tion policy; but let us “hold the fort,” Hayes’ time is running out. Let the weak kneed brethren who honestly tried to fol low Hayes, let them come hack where they belong; let the Republican ranks close up, put none ‘on guard’ but true men; i. e., let us be sure to send our strongest men to Congress; let the Republican press throughout the Union keep the masses awake to their best interests. The curren cy question is practically settled now, and our business as a nation is to retain our integrity, to discard all claims for ex-rebel losses during their unholy uttempt to de stroy our fair heritage. I am happy to find the Herald still keeping 6tep to the music of true Republicanism. “Elijah’s mantle fell upon Elisha” is verified in the Herald management. So mote it be is our prayer. John Taylor. Ed 3. Herald—Let me subjoin a few lines on farming, &c. Now, brothers of the “plow and pitchfork” don’t forget to HU up all gulleys with old hay, straw and brush, stumps, &c.: in fact, as hay is abundant this spring it is better to haul it around plentifully in pasture fields; spread it along wherever there is any indication of a wash-out; the stock will eat some of it, and by tramping the balance into the ground, with the hay seed, will generally start a sod, and prevent an unsightly wash ing away of good soil. If, unfortunately, the gully has too much the start, you had better place some logs across the gully, sinking the ends in the banks so as to se cure them, then put in a small scrubby tree, or a lot of brush above the log, then pile the hay in to suit, let the cattle tramp it in the ground, and thus you will save your field from ruin, for verily it is a duty we owe to posterity to preserve our fair land from deterioration. Try a little seed corn right away to test its virtue. Don’t sell ofl' your surplus oats and corn at pres ent figures. Always keep some grain on hands, and a small deposit in bank to apply in case of emergencies. Don’t run in debt if you can possibly avoid it; don’t keep any useless employes. We have known some men who keep so much hired help that they—the hands—virtually “run the rancho,” while the old man is held for the taxes and all other contingencies. It will not pay to plow too much ground. Al ways keep plenty of y»ur farm in good well set timothy and clover, blue grass, &c. Far better to graze short horn cattlo than to feed worthless hired hands, tramps, &c., and then have to pay them besides. Verily, let us be diligent and frugal and enjoy the good of the land. Oh, how is this: A prairie schooner right from Nebraska has just anchored in sight, where the family occupants propose to spend the summer (at least) in an old dilapidated hovel. Is Mahaska county bet ter than Nebraska State? Mr. Editor, I wish you could tell us who are the members of “Forest Dale Baptist church,’’Jefferson township, or whftt coun ty, or State does it belong to? We think the thing a myth, perhaps. Give us\ight if you have it. More anon. J. T. Items. The fruit prospects are good so far. The Township Trustees of Oskaloosa tp. made some changes in road districts, forming two new districts from districts eight and two, and making changes in sev en and eleven.

The hatchet that was buried lost winter on trespassing stock, we are sorry to hear is dug up again now that the grass is be ginning to sprout. Good fences is the only remedy, neighbors. A very pleasant party met at Mr. and Mrs. T. M.

About twenty ladles are in the M. E. church quilting a couple of quilts for Rev. Housel’s wife. By the way, some thief took several dollars worth of Mr. Housel’s harness.

A Greenback organizer from your city visited our town last week, and posted bills for a meeting to be held the following evening. A respectable audience of three individuals were present, and as no speaker except home talent were present, the trio formed themselves into a commit tee and resolved that “the meeting be postponed until the visiting brother would be present, when the topics of the hour would be presented in an able man ner to an overburdened and exasperated people.” The music of the vigilance committee, and the chicken-loving brethren, still con tinue over in White Oak Tp. with unabat mterest. It is a hard matter to determine which will reach us first as a general circulating medium, the new genuine or the counter feit silver dollar. J. Githens, a well-to do farmer who lives just across the line in Wappello couoty, will cultivate ten acres of sorgum, this season, which he will manufacture into molasses. Mr. G. manufactured 2600 gal last year, and his molasses is well known as being of first quality. Saturday and Monday of this week were taken up in hearing another State case be fore Squire Lentz. It is estimated that the costs in this case will foot up at least forty dollars, and it is probable that state cases have cost this township alone for the past year ten times the above amount. Taking then, this township as a fair aver age, we can easily see that the county 16 paying annually about six thousand, five hundred dollars in prosecuting its crimin als; and upon this estimate, the cost to the State foot up the enormous sum of six hundred and fifty thousand dollars! and we have no doubt the amount i 9 much more. Amos Kemble. April 4, 1878. Tax payers are groaning under the heavy loads they are compelled to carry, and many have been attributing the cause to officers in their employ, and a score of others equally delusive theories, when it is a settled question in our mind that there is more cause for complairt as re gards our laws in such cases than from any other one cause. It is high time that all law abiding citizens were investigating the causes of the sterreotyped cry of “high taxes,” and learn for themselves why it is that the yell of hard times, overburdened taxes, etc., is resounded throughout the country. We hear of one man who lias planted six acres of corn. We presume the seed is or a new variety, or else he expects to dig his crop off of that piece of ground. H. A. Kerman is buying horses with the intention of shipping to northern mar-, kets.

Burlington Hawkeye. • The audience which gathered at Union Hall last night to listen to Mr. V.'endiing’s reply to Ingereoll, was complimentary to Burlington morals and Burlington intellect. The house was crowded clear to the gallery, and in the gallery. And it was no common eompany. There was not a coarse face in it. Those who heard him here a few days ago. were glad of the opportunity of listening to his unanswerable logio and beautiful rhetoric again. And hun dreds of others who had heard how these had been enchanted, came to luxuriate, for them selves, in that enchantment. They were not disappointed. That clear, tine voice, that digni- Ued manner, that elegant language, and that perfect logic, held their constant attention, and delighted them. , It is not possible, nor is it proper to give a synopsis of this magnificent argument. Look ing at the question of the existence of a per sonal God, from an every day standpoint, he positively proved it. His eloquent tongue at tacked the whole Ingersoll philosophy, and every stronghold of the great atheist crumbled to dust beneath his voice. In closest logic, in consecutive narrative, and in most elaborate words, he showed the absolute and universal faith in a superhuman intelligence, which, of Itself, proves a beginningless and endless pow er. His illustrations, taken from the common est and humblest parts of physic and of life, were most beautifully made. They sparkled with poetry, as the book sparkles in the sunlight. There was, throughout the whole lecture, a proof of great research and a great knowledge of good books. His picture of the contrast be tween the pride of Pagan intellect among the Greeks, and the powerfulness of humble Christ ian faith, from Judea down to to-day, was exquisite. No wonder that the audience sat breathless, to break forth, at the end of that splendid burst of eloquence, in a storm of applause. , . , There are two particularly strong points in this wonderfully brilliant lecture-tho forca of Us logic, and the brilliancy of expression. The power of his logic is proven by the fact that nobody has yet dared to attempt to answer him. The elegance with which he clothes that logic is shown by the attention of the people who sharpen their ears tocatchevery word that falls from his lips, lest they lose a gem. But neither his leoture nor his oratory can be properly de scribed. It must be heard. Mr. Wendling will deliver his lecture in this city, May 10, at which time every one should hear him.
