Election times called us to other d tws and we failed te» note passing events. From this time forward, how ever, we promise better things. Literary Items.— “Tiik Soul or So t alism.” I*rof. \V. G. Sumner’s paper on Socialism,” in Scribner's Monthly forOe- toiler, is attracting wide attention. The New A ork ‘‘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, but so v umpact is it, and so directly does the au thor go to the heart of his subject, that it . , without exception, the most notable and is hkely to be the most effective ex position of the real nature of the preva ' M political disease which has been print lin any of the magazines or reviews iiu e socialism first threatened the life of - a iety in this country." A paper by Prof, on “Greenbacks” will appear in an early issue of Sciuknek. “Tiie 1 ranspoktatiox Question.” -tcpheuA. Dill aye’s paper in the ScpUm >ci Scr.iuxKK on “The Transportation question” has attracted much attention. The third edition, 79th thousand of the lumber contaiuing this paper, is now c.ady, :ind may be had at the new s stands An able paper on the other side of the range question is soon to appear iu the I.wt.—Yesterday one of our business lieu was telling his better half at the din ar r table that the probability was that Weaver was elected, whereupon the ‘hired help” sprung to her feet, clapped ter hands, and expressed great satlsfac ion at the news, and upon being ques ioned as to the reason of her gieat joy, •plied. “Now I’ll have new dress s, mid •v< ry thing else that I want.” Why, what i.. Mr. Weaver’s election to do with your . dresses, asked her employer. “ Why, not Mr. Weaver told us in iiis speech that if he was elected we should have til the money we wauled.’’ Yes, he lias H ide such assertions, but hecanuot sus tain them; even if he could fulfil; h s >1 - L'e.s in that direction he will have im i over to act in the matter until next Dec. a year, s<» you had better lie saving of ytiUi money and not spend it recklessly in anticipation of getting more through Mr. \V< :tver’s election. “Is it so that he will u»! send us money as scout s he is elect idr We have believed he would make hi* word good.” Sum simplicity and igno rance swelled the greenback vote hun dred ? lust Tuesday. We predict that if ■ ic* ted, Mr. Weaver will have to rise and explain many times before he succeeds himself to a second term. The Influences l*ed. Hie following is a copy of a circular sent rom Ottumwa to the liquor dealers of the ixth district. It now transpires that it > i- print d or planned in Bloomfield, it is easy to determine by whom ; they were ent by special messenger to Ottumwa and from thence sent to the various counties. It is a rood thing to put on record for the future. lo T!IE LlqtOlt MEN ANI) AM. OtHKI S VflOM IT WAV Co.NC KliS, IK TIIK SiX llt Conguksmonai.

Uni looking tin* work inll and iturn* in (lie lace they began the canvass, and made a most efficient one. The en tire county ticket is elected by from 150 to 200 majori ty.

It was a square tight be tween the Republican party and all its opposition combined, for the combination was well effected, and the result is a gain of about 400 over the vote of last year, 'fhe majority fin Ross for Auditor last year was :> 12, for same then as now; it was anything to beat tin* Republican party. This year the opposition was well united and prosecuted tbe most vigorous campaign ever made by them in (Ids county. It was the last long pull for Democratic ascendancy, and it has failed. De mocracy has tried every and all expedients for supremacy in Ma haska; it has groveled in ta* dirt with every still-born bastard party started, and its last spasmodic effort results iu defeat. Its power in this county is broken and next year it will be buried un der a Republican majority of HOD. While Republicans mourn over the defeat of their Coiigressman and the election ofa blatant demagogue, they have the best of cause for rejoicing over the re sult in Mahaska, and make preparation for a complete victory iu IK7D. Over lies Moines River. Eds. Herald Our Dcs Moines town ! ship election was held at Star school ! house yesterday. We were there from j 8:80 a. m. until nearly’ sundown, w hen a j terrific storm of rain, wind and hall, came ! upon u 3, requiring great etlort to prevent I horses from breaking away. W r c have j i>eeu at 4U annual elections, and never seen a more quiet, better behaving ciowd of near three hundred men at an election Each party strewed circulars in great pro fusion. There were scores of men who were strangers to the writer, but we arc glad to state wc saw no sign of intoxica tion, and we think no profanity noticabk. While we regret the large greenback vote polled, we rejoice to record the good be haviour and gentlemanly demeanor. We were at Eddyville Monday and heard Dr. Beardsley address the people in his quiet logical way. The Dr. is worthy of some important position ere long. * letober 9th, 1878 Oskaloosa, lowa, Oct. 3, 1778 Eds. Herald. —As Dr. Huntsman has e xpressed it as his opinion that my wife’s in jured limb was not broken, and that the treatment 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 Dis. N. and S., called a council of physicians composed of Dr. Cogshell, of Mason City, who is a graduate of Bellevue College, New Yo:k, r with six years exper ience as army surgeon; Dr. Wetherell of Knoxville, and Dr. Hinsey of Ottumwa, all gentlemen of high standing in their profession, and all agreed with Drs Nu gent and Scott, that the hone was broken . ntirely in two, two inches below the hip joint, and that the treatment she w r as re ceiving was both necessary mid proper. Myself and w ife liaye been satisfied as to the treatment of the case by Drs. Nugent and Scott, and make this statement pub lic in justice to them, as the above has her n common street talk for the past few days, to their detriment. Wm. H Wray Keokuk, la.. Sept 28th, 1878. Kns Herald. —We are w riting this ef fusion in the school house wherein we first began our suffering career as teacher of the young nearly three years ago, this being our fifth aud (we sincerely hope) iast term of teaching, as it is uu occupa tion decidedly distasteful to an individual who was born with a constitutional ten dency to do nothing. That extremely wise and gifted sage, Shakspearc, says : ‘Sweet are the uses of adversity,” but wo are 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 of labor,” that they will resort to. any means of ob taining a living that does not require of hem “the sweat of their brows,” that nethod having become almost absoletc in his treneration <>f indolence and idleness. [Jut we hereby solemnly warn all aspirants for positions of ease to avoid school teach ing as they would plow handles or grub ling hoes, for it is a mistaken theory that caching is an occupation happily free Tom care aud toil. We are convinced hat the mental exhaustion one feels after being shut up iu 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 ; but iu these “panicky days” when school boards have nothing to do hut reduce sal aries and cry “rctrencliment”.the financial emolument is no very great consideration; certainly not enough to induce any one who pines for worldly riches to make teaching a life work. To those who can engage in the work and fiud in the eter nal consciousness of the fact that they are 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.“the w astes and burdens of society’ by Henry Ward and a refutation and utter demoralization of the lugersoll doctrine by Wendling. A severe cold fml 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 bad come through his nose ; but yet 11. W. was eloquent enough to delight all who heard him, and asjfor Wendling we have nothing hut]words of praise and delight from all who were so fortunate as to hear him. Mr. Olaik, of the Gate 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 ability is certainly suffi cient proof of the fact that the rising iDg Wendling is well worth being heard. The citizens of Oskaloosa would do well to secure a lecture from him. We have lately seen the new and ele gant monument erected by order of the court, over the grave of the late Bernard Slaveu, over whose will there has been, and we believe is yet so much contest. The monument (we think) cost $”000, and was paid for from the estate left by Mr. S. although not at his requeit. This part of lowa has been favored with a most abundant harvest of fruit; very choice and fine apples are to be had for twenty-five and thirty cents per bushel, and good peaches can he 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 ment is not as strong here as in Mahaska county, hut they have a county ticket in the field. We would like to suggest to your new Beacon correspondent that ho rack his fertile brain for anew noin de plume, und allow us to remain in sole possession of the euphonious name of “Barkis.” We are us sensitive about that name as a woman is about her new bonnet, and, like the woman, “would just rather be dead, than for any one else to have one like it,” and until wc can have sole claim to the name we must send forth our effusions over a signature that no one could he in duced to take, as it is indicative of—of— well its a name that no one'seenis to want very badly, and we are afraid w r e never will find anyjone who will consent to bear the name always. Jeff L. Harbour The Standard slander about the cam paign lleuald being run on money raised for the soldiers’ reunion is as base a cal umny as ever the slimy skunk of the ,S/and| ard ever conceded. The Herald uses its own money fi r its own purpose, and no hotly elses. Can the Standard say as much? There is, however, a committee appointed lo dispose of the reunion money. Sup jmjsc they tell us all the facts as to how the money was spent. - Married, ItCVWILD-*STOUT--At Mr Slater’s, near Fremont, Sept. 25, 1878, by Rev. Geo. Nulton, Mr. Geo. A.
