Hie election last Tilt'Sii; \ .v;is one
ol the moct exciting h< 1.1 i n the State
lot years. It wa- a contest b.tween
*!•* party litat ho.- been on
li»e sale rt the jKiqde. their honor
and welfare; a party standing uj>on
principles which it believes right, and
r» partj' that daring the whole «ay use
of its insignificant history has aj.
pealed to the veiy worst :nd lowest
qualities of men. The vote polled
was an unusually large one, larger
than u-uai. The returns from the
State indicate without a doubt the
election of the entire republican tick
et. The entire opposition was pitted
against it but the gallant old party
•ante up to the work well and will
have a majority ol at least 2a,000.
This is a gain of over 1.000 over the
combined opposition of ]xst
year, and Republicans have
reason to rejoice over the re
-nit. It is difficult to tell what the
fellings of the opposition are. VVe
can hardly conceive how the two eon
dieting elements onn find much eon
solution in the result. If the demo
rats arc happy over what they
□light call success in sonic localities
they should take to their bosoms the
heering thought that the greenback
element is a thorn in their flesh which
i- bound to fester and worry them so
long as they fail to use heroic treat
ment for the eradication of the dis
ease. The same rmy be said of the
greenback party. They have mar
ried rt groom that never yet in lov. a
ould perform the fall part of -u<h a
position, and which will always need
'tini ulating to obtain the full strength
and vigor the greenback bride -corn*
to demand.
Nothing but a full report ol Senator
Blainesspeech could do it jus'ice, but
the following is a tali synopsis for so
-hort a one. It i- from the Inter Ocean.
Mr. Blaine reviewed at some length
the origin and the history of the legal
•endcr notes, showing that they- were
resorted to by the government, not as
a ncr-es-ity of creating money, but as
the most expeditious and certain
mode of ceenring a credit in the
absence of money. In other words,
the government did not i--ue the
notes for money, but i.--ued them be
cause it -lid not have the money.
a paper currency, they had proved
of inestimable service, ever; when
far below par in coin,and they would
prove of immeasurably greater ser
vice when tney were made absolute
ly equal to coin, and exchangeable
for it at the will of the holder. The
honor of originating the greenbac k
for its great and patriotic service be
longs to the Republican party, and
to that party will belong the still
greater honor of makirg every note
as good a- the r-ofn itself.' That
equality with coir, and exchangeabili
ty with it, can be ea-iiy maintained
by the government of the United
■States simp!}- keeping its pledged
and plighted faith. The people of
’his country are a truth-observing,
honor-abiding, promise keeping pco
pie, and when tfley pledged to the
w hole world that they would not is
sue more than four hundred million
dollars of legal tender notes, they
meant what they said. They main
tained this pledge when, in the opin
ion of man}*, there was temptation to
disregard it, and they will surclv not
violate it now when there is honor
and benefit in standing by it.
Mr. Blaine then di. cussed the na
tional bank- at some length, declar
ing that the- Republican party had
never made the hank system a part
of its political creed, and 3-et declar
ing that in this country we had never
before enjoyed a system of banking
that so absolutely protected the bill
holder as the present national banks.
Banks of some kind are a necessity,
where the borrower of money can
meet the lender in a common ex
bangc. Let those, therefore, who
cry out for the destruction of the
national hank, suggest a better sys
tem to take the.r place, if a better
one could be found he would cheer
fully support it. But he certainly
lid not wish a revival of the old State
banks, which had for so many years
cursed this country with an always
unreliable, and oftentimes worthless,
paper currency.
Bills are now pending iri Congress
to permit Suite banks to organize
with the [tower to circnlate bills, and
he assured his hearers that the Dom
o'-ratic cry for the destruction of the
national banks had the ghost of tin
old State banks, rising behind it.
Mr. Blaine devoted considerable
time to the taxation of United States
bonds and all the questions connected
therewith; reviewed the state of our
foreign and domestic trade, and
demonstrated how the country was
slowly yet surely corning into an era
of solid prosperity, based on the host
of foundations, and promising tln
most enduring existence.
‘ We have,” said Mr. Blaine, in con
clusion, “nearly §700,000,000 of pa }>er
money in circulation, and the entire
volume has already reached a prac
tical equality with coin, the difference
being only the minor fraction of a
cent on the dollar. No man in this
vast audience—and there are many
here who were the pioneers of your
great State —no man among you all
ever saw paper money in lowa, since
it was first organized as a territory,
tioat as near to the standard of gold
<xnn as the whole mass of seven hun
dred millions floats to day. And if
this is not enough to do the business
of the country, you have oniy to wait
and see silver by tens of millions and
gold by hundreds of millions added
to the daily circulating medium of the
people. And under these circum
stances, with a paper currency capa
ble of enlargement, through the sys
tem of free banking, a* far and as fast
as the demands of the most expan
sive trade may require, we meet a
proposition, from a new political
party, to debase our paper currency
and drive gold and silver, first out of
circulation, and then out of thccoun
try, leaving us only to use an irre
deemable paper currency whose value
would depreciate in a ratio threefold
as rapid as its volume increased.
Measures to debase the coin have
been carried in other countries, but,
never without dishonor and disaster,
and it is reserved for this conn try in
a time of profound peace to discuss
measures looking to the jH.*rmanent
expulsion of coin from the country,
and thence to the lasting and hope
less debasement of our paper curren
cy and the consequent destruction of
all stability in our busines*. The
question is one that reaches the
door sill and hearth-stone of every
house and home io the land, and the
discussion must go on until a safe
conclusion is reached, remembering
always that nothing is ever settled
until it is settled.
Capt. James .Slocum was trawling lor
blue fish in Warren river, MftMaehaattte,
when a huge fish hawk swooped down
upon his bait and carried it off. Itc< or
ering from his surprise the c-i)daiu began
hauling in his line, and after ten minutes’
hard labor secured the bird.
Aii interesting Letter From an (bh>b»
-a Teacher
Kr»s. Herald. —Bcnj. F. Taylor says:
“I think a fifty mile battering in a stage
coach usod to shake people out of the
shell of their crustaceous proprieties, and
make more life long friends than a voy
age of five thousand mile* hy rail.” This
is certainly true, and what is more pleas
ant than a jaunt over the country in an
easy family carriage. One week ago we
le ft home thus, to visit friends at Monroe
and N« wtoo and a view of the Expo
sit ion at Des Moines. The country be
tween O-kaloosa atid Monroe is quite roll
tog. The farm houses are geocrnlly good;
some elegant. The two near Pella be
longing to Messrs. Voorhecs and Smith
being the finest specimens of architecture.
Most cl the farmers are busy plowing.
Several new and very nice school houses
have been built within a few years. From
Monroe to Newton the country is quite
broken until we near the river. The
Skunk river bottom extends farther on
each -i le of the river here than any place
else that 1 have crossed it The flat land
is about three miles in extent. There is
a bridge over a portion of this a mile in
length. There are numerous school hous
es scattered along the road, with the nec
essary outbuildings, and almost always a
Wi ll of water, which convenience- is lack
ing at many of Mahaska’s school houses.
Newton we found to be a neat town not
so large as Oskaloosa, but possessing a
fine old-styled court house, in the center
of the square, luilt of brick, with stone
pillar- and eqpicc.
The school building is of “Milwaukee”
brick, and is a very fine specimen of ar
chitecture. It is nicely arranged and
supplied with evtry convenience. Wen -
ticed a waste basket under each teacher’s
table. The arrangement of the cloak
room- we thought particularly nice. There
is a door on cich si le of the teacher’s
dt?k; at dismissal the scholars pass
through the door on the right, procure
their wraps one by one, and batk again
into the school room where they put them
on. then they pass through a door into the
main hall. The halls are in the center of
the building, giving the rooms the benefit
of the greatest amount of light possible.
We were much pleased with the good feel
ing that seemed to exist between the
teachers and pupils in the rooms which
we vi-ited. The unity of spirit which
you can feel but not see. Most of the
teach-r-have been in the schools some
time. The superintendent, Mr. Steph
ens. has been connected with the schools
-ince their opening this fall. I happened
to vi-iton an unfortunate day, examina
tion day. hut as the examinations were
oral it was quite pleasant While in Xew
ton. one of the teachers received a package
from Mr. Loughridge, of India, a former
•uperintendent at Newton, in which he
remembered his teachers by sending each
a eopy of one of the gospels of the New
Testament printed in the language
which they use in that part of Inlia. A
very nice keepsake. I called on Miss
Kmma Roberts and learned for the first
time of the death of her sister Amanda.
One by one our schoelmates and friends
pass away.
Of the country between this and Des
Moines we will say nothing, as wc passed
over the mo«tofit after nipht. The cap
itol building will be an imposing structure.
About o o’clock we arrived at the Exposi
tion building, and least some of you. like
me, do not know what or where this build
ing is. I will say: It is near the center
or business part of the city, and is a large
square brick structure, apparently built
around a circular opening, three stories
in bight. You enter upon the second
floor, and the first thing that strikes your
eye is the fountain at play. Sewing ma
chines, hardware, tinware, woods of var
ious kinds, Ac., Ac., are upon every side of
you, but the next floor presents the great
est variety. The glass works draw some,
but the bird tamer attracts the largest
crowd. In the museum we found a large
variety of butterflies, bugs, and insects of
all kinds, coins, rocks, and fossils; but the
taxidermists have exceeded. Several cases
of birds and'animals as natural as life are
to be seen. In the fancy work depart
ment a case of animals and birds made
of zephyr or worsted an l grouped with
pressed leaves, etc. astonished us by their
lifelikeness. The paintings were num
erous. By twelve we were weary with
seeing, eyes and head ached with the con
tinual strain,"and the din and confusion,
Much more might b; said but we desist.
Wc returned home wishing that many
who have not, might have an opportunity
of spending a few hours in the same way.
Farmers’ wives and daughters, mother
and teacher, many whose lives are monot
onous. would derive grot pleasure and
much benefit from a day of such sight
seeing. and give food for thought many

Editob llebald. We left Rose Hill
on the last day of August for a trip to
Ohio. Wcbad a very pleasant time go
ing through; trains made close coanec
tion without accident. We found nearly
all our Ohio friends shaking with the
ague, and if we had not been iron dad
from proud lowa, we would have been
afraid of having the willow pond ague;
hut as frosty nighis are coming on the
health of the people is improving.
Wc attended the Central Ohio Fair, at
Mc-chanicsburg, the Grst of September.
The display of stock was fine, but the
same '-auso that Is crippling agricultural
societies cast and west, was practiced here,
giving all the money O the speed ring.
The second week of September wc took
io the State Fair at Columbus, Ohio,
which was almost a failure on account of
rain. The display of stock and rnaihin
cry was grand. The display of draft
horses was good. The Clydesdale stock
carried off the first prixe on imported
an I native troeds both. The best trot
ting time was 2:23. The fair was held
eight days lor the mud to dry up, so the
I racing could go off.
After the State fair was over, we spent
about two weeks io visiting in old Cham
paign county, where we lived until 24
3* cars old. There has been a good many
changes since i lived here nine years ago;
but, strange to say, the old clay farms are
producing better crops now than they did
fifteen years ago, and if our lowa form
ers would sow more clover, and not raise
corn on the same ground # ten to fifteen
years (as is the practice of so many farm
era) we would sec a vast improvement iu
the productiveness of oar lowa land.
Wheat here in central Ohio will* average
fully 25 bushels per acre, and corn is as
good a.- we C7er saw io the old Buckeye

While there I took a walk to the ceme

taining about 20 acres, sloping off gradu

We passed the time in visiting old
friends, and lookiug at stock in (’lark and
Union counties, for a few days. If Ma
haska county had as many big, heavy
horses as Union county, you would not
hear so many men howling about having
their farms overstocked with horses an i
can’t sell them. I meet with horse buy
ers every day, buying heavy boned horses,
and I have seen as high as 8275.00 paid
for heavy farm horses, since I came here.
11. C. Gre}’, near Mechanicsburg, sold 5
head ot Clydesdale colts, 2 and 3 years
old, for SIOO per head. John Owens
sold a Clyde col’, 2 years old, last spring,
for $225. These colts weighed from
1400 to 1600 ff-s. This shows the ad
vantage of raising big, heavy boned hor
ses. Small horses sell as cheap hero as
in our own county.
We were at the Champaign county
fair, helJ at Urban*, <).,Sept 24 2^th in
clusive. Had a plea-’ant time for it. ar,d
saw a great uiaD}' of my old friends, and
last but not least by no means we took in
the Union county fair, held at Marys
ville, 0., October Ist to 4th, (more com
monly known here as the World’s Fair).
It is the best fair we have yel visited, and
as Union county has a reputation for
draft horses that have no equal in the
State of Ohio, we went there the day
draft horses showed, on purpose to -ce
what they had, and it was grand. There
was one family of black Clydesdale hor
ses that showed nine in number that took
seven first premiums and one second
premium. One of this family was a black
mare owned by Mr. Ilarbett, of Union
county, which weighed I*>oo pounds, the
finest marc in Ohio: at least she has prov
en herself so by taking the -weepstakes
price at six different county fair-, and
State fair at Columbus this fall.
The weather is fine here at the present
writing. Farmers are putting out a large
wheat crop. The fruit crop wa.s good
here; 1 fared sumptuously on peaches
when I first came here, and now we have
splendid apples and cider by the barrel.

A Fight wP]i a Shark.
Capt. W. f. Pattison hud quite a
fight with the gray man eating shark
which he caught off Short Beach,
Branford, the other day. The mons
ter was nine feet four in length, and
was as big around as a flour barrel,
id is jaws were nine inches in diame
ter, and, after his head had been cut
off, the captain put his head between
his six rows of formidable teeth and
through his throat. The captain has
been on the water for twenty-two
years, but this is the first time he has
ever known of a gray shark's visit to
the waters of the sound. When he
found the ugly fellow in his fish net,
he had him drawn to his yacht, and
grabbed him by his top fin, as he ex.
presses it. The shatk was decidedly
opposed to this method of treatment,
and snapped viciously at everything
with in his reach, occasionally taking
something out of the gunwale of the
boat, and twice biting the captain’s
leg. Finally his capturer got a line
around the monster and hauled him
on deck. Here he took h:s long
knife and cut his backbone in two.
Even this severe treatment did not
cool the rage of the man-eater; for
two hours and a half afterward, when
a pine plank an inch thick was pre
sented to him he immediately bit it
in two. The snapping of his jaws
could have been heard a distance of
ten yards. lie lived four hours after
his backbone had been disjointed. He
weighed considerably more than 100
pounds. —Xcxc H avert Register.
A remarkable case of mistaken identity
occurred at St. Louis recently. Herman
Shuster awoke in the morning and found
himself dead. At least the newspapers
said he was dead and that his body was at
the morgue. Mr. Sab us tc-r went to the
place mentioned and there, sure enough,
found himself laid out on the slab as dead
as anybody could wish. Mr. Schuster
was alarmed. The forehead of the corpse
was his, the hair and moustache were the
color of his and the body would not varp
in weight five pounds from his own. The
clothes, also, were exactly like those adorn
ing Mr. Schuster’s person. *• Vot ish tic

corpse’s eyelids and found them blue.

of 13 years with a big head on him. It
wis so heavy that he could not walk until
he was six years old, and now, though he
weighs twenty-eight pounds, his head is
twice as large as the average size, meas
ures twenty-eight inches in circumference,
and is still growing. The hoy’s eyes arc
inverted, so that he can only look up. This
has prevented him from learning his let
trrs, but other wise he is apt enough, and
is perfectly healthy.
“He who wood rizc in the world,”
says Josh Billings, “ mu-zt pay- for
the yenzt.''
