There have been great improvements
and great advances made in this country
the past few yeara, and in nothing is this
more apparent that in the style in which
School Books are gotten up now days, as
compared with those of 90 and 25 years
ago. Our attention has been called to
this more particularly by examining a
copy of 8uinton'i VompUU Geography, a
handsome instruction book published by
Messrs Ivison, Blakeman, Taylor & Co.,
?Tew York and Chicago. Ho.w our eyes
would have sparkled with delight could
we have had such a beautiful book in our
school-boy days, instead of the dry and
prosy ones which were then in vogue.
This volume is illustrated by many fine
engravings, is printed in good style, and
the maps are perfect marvels of neatness.
Taken all in all we thiajc this one of the
first teU-books we have seen, and wher
ever it is adopted and nsed the scholars
will welcome it. Mr. Edward Cook of
188 & 135 State St., Chicsgo, will scud a
copy of this, book to school officers or,
teachers for examination, with a view to
introduction, for $1.00. The regular
price is 2 00.

Drs. W. B. Evans and W. B. Louthan,

quite small. These gentlemen are Stale

Division of the Sons and Daughters of

citizens will sec to it that all are made to
feel at home. We also hope our citizens
will make a point to attond the meetings
of (be convention as much as possible.
In short, let us each and all do all we
can to make the convention a success.

The present excitement in relation to
the counting of the electoral vote, will
doubtless call many visitors to Washing

way. Should any of our friends go there
we would advise them to first send to
Mr. J. F. Jarvis, for a guide book of the
city, and after they arrive there call and
see him. He is located at 133 Pennsyl
vania Avenue and publishes and deals in
all the reliable guide books of the city.
For 25 cents he will send post-paid to any
address an interesting little volume which
will be worth many times its cost to the

The social event of the week was the
reception at the home of Mrs. W. Porter
field on Friday evening. Mr. John Por
terfield had been away getting married,
and returned that day with his Bride,
which added interest to the occasion.
The spacious parlors of the Porterficld
mansion were filled witn the elite of Traer.
I cannot give a description of the cos
tumes of the ladies that is not in my
line sufficient to say they hai on their
best and looked their loveliest,which woi
worth looking at. The supper was in
fine taste, consisting of all the substan
tiate and delicacies our market affords.
Recorder was there and had his News
paper appetite doing justice to it, and
to the Cimovici.E Office by proxy. It
was a pleasant party. Porterfield Broth
ers aid their accomplished ladies, except
the junior's.made all feel at home.
The young woman concerning whom I
wrote two weeks ago. was carefully spirit

those persons who wanted the communi

aud the great expense attending such
cases. I have not met a single person but
wns glad of her s pe. Who knows to
what purpose they arc raising children?
I am sorry to learn that T. F. Clark,
Esq.,who had so for recovered as to come
to town one day near three weeks since,
exerted himself too much, and is quite
sick again.
The interest in the religious meetings
the past week was deep and we trust
abiding they are hcld' at the Congrega

not as demonstrative as is of'en the case,
but there is more calm self examination.

High Haaded Outrage.
Last Monday evening, Feb. Ifd. 1877,
just after the shades of evening had fully
settled over mother earth, snd surround
ing objects had becoinc bidden from view
by the darkness, I and family, were at
home resting, (as we supposed,) in per
fect fecurity, never dreaming that there
was a deep laid plot, which awaited only
the darkness of tne evening to be carried
into execution. Suddenly, (between the
hours of 7 ina 8 o'clock,) a loud knocking
was heard at the door, and I, with all the
unsuspecting simplicity of a child, arose
unlocked it when to my utter astonish
ment, a rush waa made for the door by
28 or 80 well armed persons. Seeing that
resistance against suofe odds was use
less, I camly and mildly submitted the
bouse to the raiders, thinking acquies
cence the best policy. After they had
ransacked the house, and enjoyed them
selves for an hoar ar two, as best thiy
could they left,leavi^ mipjr meaentoes in

Business is dull, that is what the mer

Central Railroad of Iowa.
Hon. J. B. Grinncll, Receiver of the
Central Railroad of Iowa, is manifestly
making a fine succes in his adininist.n
tion of an exceedingly responsible and
delicate trust. His annual report filed
with Judges Dillon and Love of the
United States Circuit Court, on the 15tli
instant, gives evidence of this fact. His
report shows that the receipts of the road
were $717,526.4!) for 1876,and the total ex
penses of ull kinds were $667,978.58. Of
this latter amount, however, $183,617.46
were expended for new ties and iron,cars,
tools, legal expenses, stock killed, acci
dents, &c., and not chargeable to the reg
ular operating costs of 1876. Deducting
this amount, a balance of $182,975.34 is
left as gross earnings equal to 74} per
cent, for operating expenses for 1876,
against 77 per cent, for 1875 and 86 1-6 per
cent for 1874. The sum of $49,599.88
was also spent for new construction, it
being the purpose^ of Mr. Grinnell to
maintain "a safe track as the first maxim
of railway management." The following

The last season was a severe tr'al to
machinery and iron by reason of a heavy
rain fall, and involved a large outlay for
ba'last and ditching. Fencing was a
necessity to meet right-of-Way contracts
and to lessen peril to trains where stocky
was at large, and the present smooth'
track has regained the confidence of the:
traveling public, as shown by the largely
increased passenaer earnings, and con
tributed to a remarkable exemption from
casualties—the mileage of locomotives
for the year being more thau 766,000
miles, or thirty times the distance around
tbe globe, and yet only one was off the
track injured, and that receiving damage
only of a few hundred dollars, Dor lias
there a passenger received injury save by
the unavoidable accident of a broken

litigation, except in this controverted
question of liability has grown out of a

A partial failure of the wheat and oat
crop reduced tlic earnings, taken with tbe
lower rates insisted upon by the east and
west lines, conforming to the State law
not less than $75,000, added to which
there has been a general depression in
business largely reducing the movement
of lumber and general merchandise,while
this increased tonnage over 1875 is made
up of larger amounts of coal, ice and
stone moved at low rates, the average
charges on freight being seventeen mills
to the ton per mile, against twenty-two
mills in 1875. Grain stations like New
Sharrn, Oilman and others,show a falling
08 of SO per cant. Even the enterprising
town of Marshall, where the machine
Shops and general offices are located,
earned $8,100 leas than the year prtfvions.
The wheat deflcit was about 3,000 cars
the coal increase 1,800 cars, makintr the
total ooal tonnage for the year 180,000
tons.
