Literary Items.— “Tiik Soul or So

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

and is hkely to be the most effective ex
position of the real nature of the preva

power in this county is broken and next year it will be buried un

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

Eds. Herald Our Dcs Moines town

j 8:80 a. m. until nearly’ sundown, w hen a
j terrific storm of rain, wind and hall, came

I horses from breaking away. W r c have

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.

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.

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.

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

the money was spent.
