' Socialism,” in Scribuec'* Monthly for Oc
tober, is attracting w ide attention. The
New York ‘ Evening Post,” reviewing the
article at great length, under the title
“The Soul of Socialism,” says: “Prof.
Sumner’s article is not a long one, hut so
compact is it, and so directly does the au
thor go to the heart of his subject, that it
i:, without exception, the most notable
and is likely to be the most effective ex
position of the real nature of the preva

ed in any of the magazines or reviews
ince socialism first threatened tire life of

Sumner on “Greenbacks” will appear in
or early issue of Sckikxei:.
“Thi; Tuan spout ation* Question.”
'teplieuA. Dillaye’s paper in the Septun
law S itiBXKK on “The Trans|>ortulion
has attracted much attention.
The third edition, 79tli thousand of the
number containing this paper, is now

An able paper on the other side of the

magazine.

uen was telling his better half at the din
it r table that the probability was that
Weaver was elected, whereupon the
hired help” sprung to her feet, clapped
Per hands, and expressed great satisfac
tion at the news, anti up m being ques
'Toned as to the reason of her gieat joy,
replied. “Now I’ll have new drcss< s, and
• very thing cl.-.e that I want." Why, what
Mr. Weaver's electi >u to do w ith your
e- .% dresses, asked her employer. “ Why,
u >t Mr. Weaver told us in his speech
es tl>a? if he was elected we should have
ull the money we wanted.” Yes, he Ims
made such assertions, but he cannot sus
tain them; even if he could fulfill h s
P' d.es in that direction he will have no
P over to act in the matter until next Dec.
ay< ar, so you had better he saving of
your u.ouey and not spend it recklessly in
anticipation of getting snore through Mr.
\V< av< r’s election. “Is it so that he w ill
not send us money as soon es he is elect
id r We have believed he w ould make his
word good.” Such simplicity and igno
rance swelled the greenback vote hun
dreds last Tuesday. We predict that if
elected, Mr. Weaver will have to rise and
explain many times before lie suecc< ds
himself to a second term.

Gen. J. B. Weaver, the Democratic un i

on the part of the friends of Mr. Samp
vin to secure your votes, which should un

General Weaver. It is the mare base, if
we consider that the majority of the sa

Don’t you Think we’ve Threshed?
This Chicken Crows for Mahaska, the only
county in the Sixth District v.hich
did her whole duty.
Complete Victory over the
Entire Opposition!
No amount of fraud and decep
tion could discourage the
gallant Republicans.
While the crazy wave of hat money
sweeps other counties in the dis
trict she overcame a majority
of 300 and sends Judge
Sampson a handsome
majority.
And does it squarely with
out trading for it.
The Republican County
Ticket elected.

RICE for Recorder,

lion held then would have defeated tin Kep’ddicnns by an im
mense majority. Rut looking the work iiiii ami q unrein the face
they bewail the canvass, and made a most.cilicient one. The en
tire county' ticket is elected by tVoiii 150 to ‘2OO majori
ty. So far as lic.fril from the vote on comity ticket is 150 majori
ty for Moore for clerk, and it is thought this will be materially in
creased on the otlieinl count as it »s well known that much scratch
ing was done on tin* oppos'd ion t ieket for clerk. The remainder of the
county ticket is substantially the i line. It was a square tight be
tween the Republican party and all itopposition combined, for
the combination was well effected, and the result is a gain of
about 400 over the vote of lasi year. The majority I'm Ross for
Auditor last year was 512, for Hai nes 217. The tight was the
same then as now; it was anything to beat the Republican party.
This year the opposition was well united and prosecuted the most
vigorous campaign ever made by them in 11 1 icounty . It was the
last long pull for Democratic ascendancy, and it has failed. De
mocracy has tried every and all expedients lb • supremacy in Ma
haska; it has groveled in the dirt with every still-born bastard
party started, and its last spasmodic effort results in defeat. Its
iiowcr iu this county is broken and next year ii will be buried un
der u Republican majority of HOD. While Republicans mourn
over the defeat of their Congressman and the election of a blatant
demagogue, they have the best of cause for rejoicing over the re
sult in Mahaska, and make preparation for a complete victory in
18711.

Eds. Herald Our Dcs Moines town
ship election was held at Star school
house yesterday. We were there from
880 a. m. until nearly sundown, when a
terrific storm of ram, wind and hail, catuc
upon U 3, requiring great effort to prevent
horses from breaking away. Wc have
been at 4U annual elections, and never
seen a more quiet, better behaving ciowil
of near three hundred men at an election
Each party strewed circulars in great pro
fusion. There were scores of men who
wore strangers to the writer, but wc are
glad to state wc saw no sign of intoxica
tion, and wc think no profanity noticabie.
While we regret the large greenback vote
polled, we rejoice to record the good be
haviour and gentlemanly demeanor. Wc
were at Edilyville Monday and heard Dr.
Beardsley address the people in his quiet
logical way. The Dr. is worthy of some
important position ere long.

Eds. llkhaij).—As Dr. Huntsman lias
expressed it as his opinion that my wife's
injured limb was not broken, and that the
:reutment she was receiving at the-hands
of Dis. Nugent and Scott was not proper,
uncalled for, and unnecessary for the in
jury she had sustained, I, for my own sat
isfaction and without solicitation on the
part of I)is. N. and S , called a council of
physicians composed of Dr. Cogshell, of
Mason City, who is a graduate of Bellevue
College, New Yoik/with six years exper
ienec as army surgeon; Dr. Wetherell of
Knoxville, and Dr. Hiusey of Ottumwa,
all gentlemen of high standing in their
profession, and all agreed with Drs Nu
gent and Scott, ttiat the hone was broken
. ntirely in two, two inches below the hip
joint, and that the treatment she was re
ceiving was both necessary and proper.
Myself and wife haye been satisfied as to

Wm. H Wray
Keokuk, la., Sept. 28th, 1878.
Eds. Herald. —We are writing thisef
fusiou in the school house wherein we
first began our suffering career as teacher
of the young nearly three years ago, this
being eur fifth and (wc sincerely hope)
last term of teaching, as it is an occupa
tion decidedly distasteful to an individual
who was born with a constitutional ten
dency to do nothing. That extremely
wise and gifted sage, Shakspeare, says :
“Sweet are the uses of 5 adversity,” hut wc
arc convinced that the brilliant “Bard of
Avon” never taught school and it is only
the adverse fates that drives despairing
mortals to teaching as a highly respecta
ble means of gaining a livelihood without
the exertion of any very great amount of
physical strength, and in these degenera
ted days young men and women have so
little regard for the j“dignity of labor,”
that they will resort to. any means of ob
taining a living that does not require of
them “Ur; sweat of their brows,” that
method having become almost absolete in
this generation of indolence and idleness.
But we hereby solemnly warn all aspirants
!'or positions of ease to avoid school tendi
ng as they would plow handles or grub
bing hoes, for it is a mistaken theory that
caching is an occupation happily free
om care and toil. We are convinced
that i he mental exhaustion one feels after
being shut up in a school room six hours
with forty or fifty children weakens and
depresses a person far more than ten
hours of physical labor, although the fi
nancial recompense may be greater ; hut
iu these “panicky days’’ when school
boards have nothing to do but reduce sal-
aries and cry “rctrenchment”.the financial
emolument is no very great consideration;
cfcrUiinly not enough to induce any one
who pines for worldly riches to make
teaching a life work. To those who can
engage in tli? work and find in the eter
nal consciousness of the fact that they
arc doing good a sufficient and adequate
recompense for their labors, teaching may
be a profitable andjdelightful occupation.
Keokuk had during the last week the
divine Beecher and eloquent Wendling to
discourse before its people on their respect
ive themes, i.e.“thc wastes and burdens of
society’ by Henry Ward and a refutation
and utter demoralization of the Ingersoll
doctrine by Wendling. A severe cold
the hay fever which caused Henry
Ward’s beautifully rounded sentences to
emanate seemingly from his saintly nose
instead of his divine mouth somewhat
marred the oratorical effect of Mr. B’s. el
oquence, for not even Edmund Burke him
self could have chained an audience by
the voice of his eloquence if the aforesaid
eloquence had come through his nose ; but
yet 11. W. was eloquent enough to delight
all who heard him, and as|for Wendling
we have nothing butjworels of praise and
delight from all who were so fortunate as
to hear him. Mr. Clatk, of the date City
says: “We never realized to ourself the
phrase “the art of speaking” meant until
we heard Wendling, his was the illustra
tion and perfection of it.” This high en
conium of praise from a gentlemen of Mr.
C’s. well known abilityJs certainly suffi
cient proof of the fact that the rising
mg Wendling is well worth being lieard.
The citizens of Oskaloosa would do well
to secure a lecture from him.
We have lately seen the new and ele
gaut monument erected by order of the
court, over the grave of the late Bernard
Slavcu, over whose will there baa been,
and we believe is yet so much contest.
The monument (we think) cost s*2ooo, and
was paid for from the estate lift by Mr. S.
although not at bis request.
This part of lowa lias been favored with
a most abundant harvest of fruit; very
choice and fine apples are to be hud for
twenty-live and thirty cents per bushel,
and good peaches can be bought for fifty
and seventy-five cents per bushel.
A small greenback paper commenced
publication here last week. It is like the
party by whom it is supported, very weak
and diminutive in size; the greenback ele
ineut is not as strong here as iu Mahaska
county, but they have a county ticket in
the field.
We would like to suggest to your new
Beacon correspondent that he rack his
fertile brain for anew nom de plume, and
allow iis to remain in sole possession of
the euphonious name of “Barkis.” We
are as sensitive about that name as a
woman is about her new bonnet, and, like
flu? woman, “would just rather be dead,
than for any one else to have one like it,”
and until we can have sole claim to the
name we must send forth our effusions
over a signature that no one could be in
duced to take, as it is indicative of—of—
well its a name that no one'seems to want
very badly, and we are afraid we never
will find anyjone who will consent to bear
the name always.
The Standard slander about the cam
paign llkuald being run on money raised
for the soldiers’ reunion is as base a cal
umny as ever the slimy skunk of the»S/a/<ri|
ard ever conceded. The Hkuai.d uses
its own money f< r its own purpose, and no
body elses. Can the Standard say as much V
There is, however, a committee appointed
to dispose of the reunion money. Sup
pose they tell us all the facts as to how
the money was Bpent.

but buying goods superior in
style, linisli, and quality to any
sto<*k of Dry (ioods ever ottered
in Oskaloosa, and showing no
assortment of novelties unequal*
ed by any house in the city..;
That our efforts have been tlior- 1
oughly appreciated is evident
not only from the many enco-
miums we have received from
our customers, but also the fact
that our sales have been so im
mense that we are already com
pelled to go to market a second
time to purchase
NEW GOODS.
