Tribulations of an Editor.
Can there be any greater mistake than
to suppose journalism is devoid ot trials
and tribulations! A great many people
imagine that the life of an editor is a
very pleasant one. This is a grave mis
take. Few people have as many trials
and tribulations as the average editor.
There arc so fiiany drawbacks in the edi
torial career that we have only time to
touch lightly on a few.
As a general thin:' the editor, like the
preacher, is very poorly paid. It lie is
on a political paper, aud his candidate
and party are successful, the editor is for
gotten in the hour of rioting. The polit
ical bummer gets paid for his services
during election times, in actual cash.
The editor gets paid for his services in
But a life of poverty would not be so
bad if the editor's fseliugs were not being
continually plowed up by unfeeling per
sons, .when lor instance, tnc omce uoy
announces that a gentleman outside has
a bill he wishes paid. It is painful at
times to decline manuscript, but in such
casc3 it should be done.
It is very trying to an editor's feelings
when a supposed fnend says: "I saw an
excellent thing in your paper the other
day;" and when the editor imagine it
was one of his.cditori-tIs, he adds JwitU a
cruel, cynical smile: "It was a receip for
making lobster salad." But about the
meanest thing to do to an editor is to ask
him where he is going to spend the sum
mer. Very frequently journalists are unkind
to each other. Kot long since the fol
lowing appeared in a country paper: "We
do not desire to be personal, but if the
lean lank, liver-colored lump of lunk
hcadativencss we refer to the thimbleful
of alleged brains that edits(?) our esteem
ed contemporary, etc',
How painful it must be to the editor's
wife, when asked by the rag man if she
has any rags for sale, to be oblidgcd to
reply: " o, my husband is down at the
office, and he has all his clothes on him."
Then the editor has of times trouble in
the manipulation of the mechanical de
partment of his paper, when, forinstancc,
the chueklc-hcadcd new pressman greas
es the forms to make the roller run sliok.

Then again the county attorney who
belongs to the other political party will
make the editor very mad because of his
prohibition proclivities, and thev will
meet and cause a "row," whereat the cd
itor is followed up by saidcouuty attor
ney with a long gun. Verilv these are
hard times for the editor.

State Soldiers Home.
From an address delivered by Department Com-
maueriieurv uooia at sauna, nas., Jan. t?7, 1S9U:
'Through the exertions of Lewis post,
No. 294, at DodVge City, Kas., and the
patriotic citizens of Ford county, the
old Fort Dodge Military Reservation
was secured from the general govern
ment by act of congress for a State
Soldier's Home. There is something
over 113 acres of Gne bottom land, and
a sufficient number of buildings when
properly repaired and arranged to ac
comodate several hundred "old sol
diers, " their wives and dependent child
ren. The legislature at its last session
appropriated $10,000 for the two years
18S9 and 1S90 for repairs, furnishing
and maintenance. A lioard of Manag
ers was provided for by the law to con
sist of three members, and the Gover
nor appointed as such board comrades
J. D. Barker, of Girard, Ira F. Collins,
of Sebatha, and Henry Booth, of Lar
ncd, for three years, two years and one
year respectively. The board organized
by electing J. 1). Barker President, and
Henry Booth Secretary. Something
over 2,000 has been expended in re
pairs, and comlortaDle quarters lor at
least one hundred old soldiers are now
provided at this home. The small
amount appropriated renders it impos
sible to care for many, until the legisla
ture provides more money for furnish
ing and maintainance. This home is
to be on the cottage plan, and for old
soldiers and their wives particularly,
although unmarried soldiers are not
This home is a tardy recognition by
the state of the needy soldier and his
no less needy wife. Nearly every
Northern State in the Union has pro
vided places where the 'broken down
soldier" can find a home without being
scperatcd from his wife, and Kansas,
which should have been first in such a
patriotic movement, brings up the rear,
a method not iu keeping with her rec
ord upon nearly every other question.
Kvery comrade especially, and every
old soldier, should sec to it that the
member of the next legislature from
his district is informed as to the needs
of this institution, and requested to as
sist it by his vote and influence."
An article appeared last week in this
paper under ibe title "An Effect of Re
ligious Disputation," whic'i we wish
kindly to criticise, and to differ from.
It seems to have been taken from The
Saturday Kcview(?) Of course there is
some wheat among the chaff in the arti
cle, but there is also throughout it, so
much of loose statement, misstatement
and error of understanding that we know
not at vthat pait to :iin in a short reply
to it. A few tleQnito suggestions ans
wers most of its error. The "Episcopal
body" and "General Assembly" referred
to, were not differing upon, nor disput
ing; about, fundamental nor essential
truths. Wc insist that with possibly
two exceptions, (the Unitarian and Uni
versalis! churches); all the other Protest
ant churches are in substantial agreement
tip: what is standard authority, what
th.tt authority teaches, and about the
pbm and way of mans salvation.
These two suggestions being true, throw
a clearing light upon the supposed "con
troversies." Docs the author of the pa
per iu ciucsliou, lean toward "the fold
where doctrine aud tdacbing have always
rema'iDed the same"? We suspect it
from the slant of some of his promiscuous
charges. But neither tbc high shepherds,
uuder shepherds, nor cunning of the flock,
will thauk him for his right but inadvert
ent admission. They so vehemently de
ny the teachings which made possible the
gruss practices of a thousand dark years,
l hut uidiiy are led to doubt about the
identity. lint vtc digress.
Our poiut is however, that because
l'rolesluiil christians arc manly, thought
ful null honest enough to have opinions
and discussions upon religious subjects;
neither the "Saturday Review" nor any
body else, ought thereupon to suppose or
sny, the laud murks are gone, the compass
is overboard, the preacher "admits that he
mar and very likely did, direct us in the
wrong road." 2ot at all. Mr. S. Review.
The preacher makes no such admission.
Nor is he oiled on to do so, nor cau be
in sincerity. Substantial changes in
views of the clergy, upon the main truths
of religion, are exceedingly rare almost
entirely unknown. To l.c sure, a few
"Doctors of Divinity," whom much
learning hath made mad. still delight in
hair sipTittiug dissertations upon "the

Last Thursday druing the noon hour at
the Belle Center school while the schol

became disloged or rather it broke off at
furnace part and fell over making quite a
noise and scattering of stove pipe, the
scholars were seen making for the door,
and windows as the shrieks of horror's
went up, while some became as it were
congealed to their seats, live coals of fire
were scattered in all directions, but with
the aid of the large boys the teacher
managed to quell the fire, while the
superintendent "being a visitor of the
school at that time," opened wide the
windows on leeward side of the house, to
let the impure gases emit.

than three hours (the eruption usually
resulting from contact begins in ten day-)
my face was swollen and disfigured, and
my bands and my arms seriously affected.
I immediately began taking Swift's Spe
cific (S. S. S.), and after taking three
large bottles I found all signs of the
breaking out entirely removed. I was
led to suspect its return at the same time
next year, but it did not, nor has there
been and indications of its return since.
My little boy, eight years old, was af
flicted with the same Kjison iu 1SS4. Af
ter taking several bottles of Swift's Spc
cific S. S. S. the eruptions entirely disap

eruption returned during the next spring,
but wc then resuased the S. S- S., and
having taken enough during that season
to make the cure jiermanent, he has not
since had any return of the disease.

thorough curj-j in both these cases, and I
regard it as a most effective remedy for
