WILLIAM BISSELL, Editor. THE RESULT. In Kansas, Qlick is elected hy.a plur ality over Kt. John of about 10,000 with fill the balance of the State ticket and all Congressmen Republican, but close In Haskel's district. In Pennsylvania the Democrats elect Governor by a plurality of 30,000. A Democratic Governor is elected in New York by 170,000 majority. The half breed Re publicans all going to the Democrats, but a portion of the Republican State ticket is elected. Michigan, like Kan sas and Massachusetts elects a Demo cratic Governor, and other State offi cers Republican. The Democrats have ma7e large gains in Congressmen and will have u large majority in the next House and will elect several U. S. Senators and possibly make that Democratic. In thU county John Bissellis elect ed Representative, II. C. Spaulding, Probate Jude; G. A. Spaulding, Clerk District Court; C A. Lewis, Superintendent, all Republican. S. "V. MeElroy, County Attorney and J. V. Close Commissioner on the Green back and Democratic ticket. The op position carried both Representatives in Smith ; aud Osborne, Rooks and Norton are close and claimed by both parties. The Legislature of this State Is all right, aecuring there-election of Senator Plumb. THE DISASTERS OF TUESDAY. The Republican defeat, on Tuesday was not as deep us n well nor wide as u barn door, but it was as deep and wide u wound as has been inflicted upon the party since JS-jG, with the ex ception ot that it suliered dunntrtiie disastrous yearof 1874. In 1S74 all the States that were carried by t he Dem ocrats on Tuesday, except Kansas, went Democratic by overwhelming majorities. There was, too, during that year, a conspicuous absence oi the personal feuds that have divided unci distracted the party this year. Then the popular revolt appeared to have ita origin in reasons purely polit ical, and therefore likely to be perma nent. This year, the Republican re verses, in most of the states, are at tributable entirely to the personal wrangling of leaders and the rivalry ol factions, and are therefore temporary. In New York, Pennsylvania and Mas sachusetts, personal feuds were the nolo cause of the Republican defeat: Gen. Butler said, some weeks ago, that the "swing of the political pendu lum" was in the Democratic direction this year. He was correct. It has been -'in the air" for mouths that the Republicans were to get a whipping in a number of States. Every three or lour years there is, on the part oi' a large number of voters, a general set tling up of old political scores and sores. People who have been disappointed in personal ambitious, or who have not liked something their parly has done, or who think it should have been bet ter than it has been, or who have any one of a dozen other grievances, de clared that their party deserves a whipping in order to learn it n whole some lesson. Now they straightway proceed, so far as wit bin them lies, to administer this beating. Having ac complished their purpose, they retire, with the proud consciousness of hav ing done their duty, and are ready to tight the common enemy next year. Champion. . tS STATE.

Tne Salvation Army. This is a very powerful religious or ganization in England, though it has made but little progress in this country. General Booth, who organized it, has under his command three hu nil rod and thiry-one corps, seven hundred and fixty officers, and fifteen thousand train ed Soldiers or speakers, ready to talk when cu' led upon. More thaiv six thou sand services are held every week, while over $100,000 per am: am is expended in the work of the army. The creed ol this .singular organization is strongly calviuislic. Its adheivn.s believe in a devil and a hell, that man will be pun ished for all eternity unless he believes in a crucified Savior. Mu:h of the .-uo-cess of the Salvation Army is due to ijs military JiscipliHU, with its titles, uni t'orms, banners, and brass bands. Booth is an absolute dictator, aud his son will succeed him in ofilcc. .-such oflhi? suc cess is due to Mrs. Booth, who is an impressive and fervid speaker. She is plaint and sometimes even jjrotcscpie in lur presentation of religious truths. Tho members of the Salvation Army ab.-tain from liquor and tobbaco so far are effecting real reforms in social lite. DcmorexV a Mon tnh. The Disappointed Candidate. From the L'etroit Free Pre.s Tho candidate who. got left at the county convention . can be told by the way he grasps your hand, braces himsell against his gurglitigri-moiion, auj whis periugly inquires : "Did you ever hoar of a case like i- ?" You never did. You tell him that you uever did, aud he pahs you into a doorway and continue" " "I am douo with politics fcrever." "No!1' "Yes, lam, and with the party, too.'' You don't say ?" "Oh, but I aui. This thing has sat isfied mc that-(here is no such ti.in as honesty in polities, and that a poiiticiau lias no more word than a doir. I was sold out " "Possible!"

He doesn't believe you have the slightest idea that he packed threo or four caucuses, bought a dozen delegates, told three lies to the other man's one, and was beaten because his delegates sold out.

'l X r vrv. v,- The Oldest Newspaper. . j are ant to think tbat the news paper is the product of our Western civilation and ot modern times, but as a matter of fast, to the Chinese belongs the credit of issuing ths first newspaper known to the atnals of the race. It hirst appeared at Pekin A. p. 911, but was published at irregular intervals. Its name was then as now, KlDg Pan or Capital sheet. Since 1531 it has been published weekly ; for a long time it contaiued nothing bat orders in coun cil and court news. It was really a kind of officiargnzette, and was sold for what would be one cent of our mon ey. The reigning emperor however, Kwaog Shu, has je-organized this jour nal, and it is now irsued three times daily. In the morning it is a business sheet, and pives commercial intelligence. The second edition appears in the fore noon, and furnishes geueral news, court go.-sip, - and official announcements. The third ditkn appears late in the afternoon, aud is intended for country cireukt.on. Tlie paper is edited by six meadj-rsof the Han Liu Acadomy of Sciences, who are salaried by the Chines..-state. One odity is the color of the paper. The morning editions are veil' w, !.nI the afternoon is red The ciieuLti. n is only about 14,000. The Chinese have anticipated the Western wvrid in "many impoitant inventions, notably gun powder. The great green back debate was anticipated by the Chi nese two thousand pears ago. The fiat money people v.; ill fiid all their argument! anticipated by Chin is writers who discussed financial questions beiore the Christian er;i. Thu upshot of the Kiatter was the Chinese adopted silver as their .-sole unit of value, entirely dis carding paper money, Our Mew West. Some years ag. the country between the Missouri lliver and the ltocky Mountains, was regarded as. a desert at In st tit fur nothing but grazing pur Poms. These plains cover an enormous extent of country, and there is now r. a -on to believe that in the course of the next twenty five years, the greater part of it will become arable land, which will grow magnificent crops. There are three agencies at work effecting this change. One of these are irrigation. The streams which issue from the melt ed snows of the llocky Mountains are being carefully utilized to irrigate large sections of land east of the foot hills. As is well known, the Mormons have con verted the Salt Lake Valley into a per fect garden. Before they set up irri gating ditches Utah was in appearance the most unpromising portion ot the earth s surface tor the growth oi agri cultural products, but water applied to these sage brush deserts, changes them as if by magic, and makes them won derfully fruitful. Still another means of utilizing these grazing plains is found in the sinking of artesian wells. The water which reaches the surface by this means is generally absorbed by. the thirsty soil, and the desert blossoms like the rose. Many ot these wells have al ready been opened, and in time there wiii be thousands of them, each the center of an almost recreated district of country. But the most potent influence at Work is the steady extension of popu lation west of the rainfall. As the coun try becomes settled and trees are planted, the raius become more frequent and heavier. It is believed in time even Denver will be subject to showers suffi viet.tly frequent to convert the arid regions of its neighborhood into fruitful fields. Horace Greeley predicted that the time would come when these dry plains would become dotted with wind mills, which will pump up th- water out of the vast depths of the artesian wells. It is claimed that the builuing ot rail roads has a great deal to do iu attracting thcraiu from eastern skies and water courses. Demoresr's Monthly. Length of Railway.
