A baby's boot, and a sUcin of wool, Faded, and soiled and soft: Odd thing), you say, and I doubt you're right, Round a seaman's neck thia atormy Bight, Up in the yards aloft. Most like it's folly, but mate, IOOK he**: When first I weat to sea, A woman stood on yon far-off strand, ith a wedding ring on the small soft hand That clung so close t» me. My wife—God bless her I tb« day before, She sat beside my foot And the sunlight kissed her yellow hair, And the dainiy fingers, deft and fair, Knitted a baby's boot. The voyage was over—I oame ashoie What think von, 1 found there 7 A grave the daisies had pprinkled white A cottage emptj and dark as night, And this beside the chair. The little boot, 'twas unfinished still Tho tangled sk-sin lay near But the knitter had gone away to rest With the b«be asleep on her quiet breast, Down in the churchyard drear. Jjmi SLANG PHRASES. Rev. Dr. Ilall was sitting in his study one pleasant Au«ast afternoon With his thoughts intent upon his Sunday sermon, and lii.s mind with drawn from worldly cares, when his train ol thoughts was rudely inter rupted and his attention distracted from his tliemo by the following coi. versation. 'Oh, Nellte Hal!, where are you— you ought to havo been tare—the sluunimst fellow.' 'Is that you, Maggie 'Yes, come down quick, I've got something to tell you.' •I'll be there iu halt a jiffy.' Then a door opened, and in a few moments— 'What do you think? As I was coming over here there w»» just tho stunninest fellow just in front of rae. 11st as I got in front of the new church try masic roll slipped and ev ery paper in it fell slap 011 tho sid«- walk.' 'Gracioun, I should have been dam founded.' 'And so was 1, bat it was so ridic ulous that 1 almost died laughing.' Well, that fellow, do you think, stopped,turned round, and helped me pick them up. I was all hunki dory then. He wafked as far as here with me. I thanked him, of course. You know how 'tis, yourself.' Very soon it was continued but this time it was commeuced by his daughter: 'There, how's that for high Oh, isn't it sweet, how much was it, Nellie?" 'Only five dollars Cheap enough, isn't it Yes, inueed. But you were going to have pink—and this is blue.' •Never mind, it's all tho 6ame in Dutch.' The doctor peeped in to seo what they were talking about—and Miss Nellio was exhibiting her new bon net to her lriend. •It's raging hot hero.' Well, I don't know as I can make it any cooler,' said Nelly looking round. 'I 'spose father would kill me if I opened the door.' Her father the day before had re quested her to keep the door of bis etudy closed. 'I guess it's time foyne to absquat ulate,'said Maggie. •Don't tear yourself away. Are you going to attend the lecture tlus evening 'Yes I bad agtavinjg tim*. Tues day night.' •George Sauuders said he would go home with you. 'Did he He'd better learn to spell able first.' 'That's so. If there's any I hate it's these boys' bothering around they ought to be put iu a barrel and fed through the bunghole until they can behave.' 'I must bid you a fond adieu now. I've thousands of errands to perform to-day.' 'Well, good-byo.' 'Oh. tho dickutia, I've forgot my parasol.' 'Here it is.' •Now goodbye, BaaurewiMlaome to-night*' Yes goodbye.' Then tho door closed and Nellio went up stairs. Tho doctor gently shut tho door with a sly twinkle in his eye. lie sat buried in thought some littlo time. Now and then a good humored smile broke over his face, and once he shook with suppressed laughter at last, A'ith an impatient gesture he took his hat and went out for a walk, lie got as far as tho gato when an idea seemed to striko him. lie came back, hung up his hat and went in search of his wife. For a long time they were closeted together, until timo for tea. When tea was ready 88 Nellie came down equipped for the lecture. After they were fairly seatod at tho table Mrs. Hall said 'My dear, will you havo some tea?' 'In hall a jilly, utad&m.' Nellie looked up, but her father took no notice. 'lloally, this cake is quite stunning.' went on the doctor, aa solemn as a judge. Just then his napkiu fell to tho floor. 'Gracious, I'm con—dumb founded,' said tho doctor, gotting it a little wrong. Nellie gazed at hor father in per fect amazement. 'My Dear, this sattoe ia staving, where did yon gut it 'Made it,' said his wifo. coolly. '•'Oh, well, it's all Ui& same in Ger man .' Nellie dropped her knife and fork. 'You must give me some inonoy lor the butcher to morrow,'said Mrs. Ilall. 'You had better learn to spell abil ity first,' growled the doctor, sav agely. Then suddenly taking out his handkerchief, he gave his noso a tre mendous blow, 'There,' said he, 'how is that lor high?' 'I know how 'tie myself, replied his wife. This capped the climax. Tho know ledge that her father mast have heard the afternoon conversation was too much for Nellio. She burst into tears and leit tho room. Tho sago doctor nodded to bis wife, and when she got out of hearing he ex claimed 'There, wife, I guess we shall hear no more slang phrases from her.' Tho next day tho good doctor call ed his daughter into his study and said to her. 'My dear girl, don't you see how very foolish all these slang phrases are They mean nothing, but aro exceedingly injurious to those who use them. There is a great deal in companionship. If we keep compa ny and are intimate with thoso who use bad language, wo aro apt to make use of it ourselves. 'Persons are known by the company thoy keep.' When you hear a person usiug those phrases, you may be stiro that such a person does hot know what is called good society.' Newspaper Stereotyping. Perhaps the greatest improvement for facilitating the rapid production of newspapers since the introduction of the power press, is that by which newspaper forms are quickly aud cheaply stereotyped. In fact, it would harldy be possible to uso ei ther tho Bullock or the Walter press to print from typo, as the cylinder which the steroolypo form is made to fit is so small that the typo could not well bo held in plaoe. Even with the IIoo presses, however, if it were not for tho process of stereo typing, great difficulty would be ex perienced, aud was felt in former years, in printing an edition of any thing more than twenty or thirty thousand copies with sufficient rapid ity to meet the demauds of a daily newspaper. To obtain- and make ready all tho news, and have tho type set up and put iu the form, requires tho lull forco of editors, reporters am Cljronick. and compositors up to 2 and 3 o'clock iu the morning. Then stereotype plates aro made of each page, for as many presses as desired, according to tho number of copies to bo print ed. If threo of tho ten cylinder presses arc to bo used, by making three sots of plates, fifty or sixty thousand copies can bo printod per hour instead of only twenty thous and per hour, whiah was the maxi mum before tho introduction of ster eotyping. Newspaper stereotyping was first made successful about ten years ago. It must not bo supposed that this was tho first successful Btoreotyping for any kind ol printing, for printing has been done from plates almost as long as types havo bean used but by tho ordinary method of making stereotype plates from plaster of Paris moulds, tho ^imo consumed was BO great as to render this meth od totally unavailable for newspaper work. After uiany experiments, how over, what is called the taper raocsss, of making tho stereotype mould was successfully introduced. This con sists in beating into tho face of tho typo with a heavy brush, a prepared sheet, with a body almost like paper pulp, and Homowhat thicker than heavy railroad card. Tho typo form with this wet blanket kind of mould beaten into it, is then placed on a steatn bed to drive out the moisture ready from tho timo iu which the form is ready for tho stereotypers, is about twenty minutes, tho greater portiou of this buiug taken up in dryiug and baking the moulds, and tho diflioulty in doing it more rapid ly liua lu iliu Iuva itiui me type lorm when ready for the stereolyperp, is very wet, and all must, of course, bo made perfectly dry. These stereo typo plates aro made of typo metal, which consists of lead, zinc and anti mony, and they may be used to print any number of copies required. Tho cost of making these plates connot bo said to add anything to tho ex penses of a large newspaper, as lull euough is saved iu tho wear and tare of typo to cover tho cxpenso ot uiak iug tho plates. The mochauical work of a daily morning paper is nearly all done at night, as the copy of the pa per which tho city subscriber reads at his breakfast table represents tho work of printors aud editors up to I! o'clock iu the morning, and tho press men thereafter.

Tho contest for Lieutenant Gov ernor before the Republican State Convention seems to bo narrowed down to two candidates—D. W. 1 ot and harden tho mould, which, in ai^)y?art Tama. Both candidates lew minutes can bo taken oil' almost iaie ^°0^ men, and each has Btrong as hard as a sheet of card board, but au* ^'""cst supporters. Wo have holding a perfect impression of tho, carefully examined into the merits of type. To make and trim a plato' candidates and the argu with type melal is now very simple, aud the same mould can bo used for as mauy plates as desired. The short- est time occupied in getting a plato Allamakee, and Joseph ,n0Ilts brought out by their respec- l've KUPl'ortons Hart to Bil on» and bulievo Mr. Dy- l'ie heat man for the po- for tho following among other reasons First—Qualifications. —Mr. Dysart entered the Senate in 18G9, and has been there, wo believe, ever since. These years of experience have made him familiar with past legislation, nave maae turn acquainted with the members ol the Senate, and given him an insight into their qualifiea lions and capacities, which will givo him a great advantage over a new man iu making up tho committee*, by no means tho least responsible of tho duties of tho office. IIo haa a thorough aud complete knowledge of parliamentary rules and usages, auolher very important qualification in a presiding officer, aud ono that is not very easily picked up by every man. Second—His put record—On the great questions now .agUaling tho people of our State, Mr. Dysart has shown by his speeches, his votes and iuflucnce, that ho is on thesidoof the people aud against tho extortions ot monopolies.—No man in Iowa liaiA better record iu this respect than ho. A practical faimor himself, ho knows the wants of tho class, and has always labored to maintain them. At the same time I10 is not a man of one idea, nor will he represent one faction to the exclusion of all others. Third—Locality—It is generally conceded that Gov. Carpenter and State Superintendent Aberncthy will be renominated. They aro both from tho northern portion of tho State, aud it would not certainly, be either proper or just to take the candi ato for Lieutenant Governor iroin tho same section. \V 0 aro not great sticklers tor tho locality issue, but other things being equal, it is good policy, and one generally observed, to distribute the candidates through the State. Mr. Dysarl's nomination would give tho central portion ot the State a candidate, leaving the Su preme Judge to tho southern—for wo believe Judge Beck will bj re nominated, as ho should be, and will be satisfactory to all sections, Mr. Dysart is strongly endosed by his friends and neighbors, ar.d thoso who kuow him best arc tho warmest in his praises. He is a plain, unas suming man, of sterling integrity and unimpeachable honesty, has re sided iu Iowa sixteen years, is thor oughly posted iu regard to tho wants of our people, and has always beeu ready to maintain thein. These are some of the reasons why wo prefer Mr. Dysart. We havo no war to wage against Mr. Adams or his supporters, but believe the pub lic interests will bo best subseryed by the election of Mr, Dysart. And so believing, wo hope the Repubh. can State Convention will place him 011 tho ticku as tho candidate for Lieutenant 3orcrn—Palerfa M* pQiUr. f) I- Irl J: J:
