FRIDAY HORNING. NOV. fl. 1SS0.
Iu die article from the Kansas City
Times upon Kansas journalists and also in
the brief mention of it as they appeared hi
these columns 3'csterday morning tncre
were somy errors. Iu the coirmeut item it
should have read "size" of his pocket
book, icotcid of "use," etc., and in con
clusion of the article proper the editor is
made to say Ui..l he does not want any
thing outside of his "name," etc., when it
should have read "home." These mistakes,
while they may seem trivial to the reader,
are annoying and vexatious to the writer,
inasmuch as they smack of an egotism un
lookcd for in the modest gentleman, and
not at all befitting the subjeel of this matter.
Written for the Eagle.

"Ten thousand people have moved away

It is expected that Dr. Phillips will join
the procession of emigrants, ducc the
voters of Kansas City sat down on his con.
gressional aspirations Tuetdivy.
One-boy in Springfield, Mass., is so
bright that he has got into the newspa

his school teacher how far a procession of
the Presidents of the United Slates would
reach if th"y were placed in a low. "When

Abratn 8. Hewitt lias been elected mayor
of Kcw York, but the vote given Henry
George indicates that the sceiah'.sts and an
nrchkUi as a political element in the met
ropolis arc not to be despised. It is, of
couiv, conceded that thousands of honest,
order-loving woillingmcn voted for him,
but by far the gieatcr portion of -
strength undoubtedly came from the class

"I was running the "2o," sir,
Pulling the fast express.
And all that day my mind was filled
Willi .1 dread I could not repress.
"And I stood with my hand on the throttle.
With my eyes on tlic winding track,
Where the shadows threw out their gitost
Seeming to hold mo back.
"Hut I heeded not the wsrniag.
O'er the shining steel we sped;
And bathed in a sea of sunshine
I saw the bridge ahead.
"Great heavens! the "draw" was open;
And jti-t on the other side,
A tiny child of four or live
(The bridgeuiauV babe) I spied.
"He too had seen the peril,
Would Love or Duty rch-n?
Would he save his child, or, in duty,
Lose her and cave the train?
"Well, lie never left his post, sir,
Though his fnce was deathly white,
And I just had to shut my C3es, sir,
To hide that awful siirht.
"Poor Jack! before I could stop the train
He'd the little one ciose to his breast
Kissing the eyes, the brow, the lips,
So still in the lonjr, last rest.
"They buried her there on the hillside
By her mother's grave, and Jack
He crossed the sea to other lands
But every year sends back
"A box of liowers for the two lone graves;
And we've heard on the road, since then,
That over in proud old England
He's one of the titled meii.
"That in his caily manhood
He had "married lor love and they,
The parents, who cursed "his folly"
Vowed for it he'd dearly pay
"Re that as it may, 'twas a heait, I think,
Loyal, brave and truo
That would sacrifice all for duty's sake
To be true to its trust: Don't you'"

3'ears since, the municipal charter having
been ?ni rendered, the city was turned into

The city is now governed by a council of
eight Member., elected by the people. The

Again Sunday, a very destructive prairie
fire visited the Valley and Little River
townships. The fire caught from the loco
motive on a west bound freight train, aud
the wind, blowing almost a gale at the
time, carried it noithward with almost the
speed of a train. The dry, dead grass
furnished the best of material for fuel.
The fiie, as it parsed over the pnuiies and
sand hills, left only a blackened and smok
ing waste behind, with occasionally a house
or out building. All else was destroyed by
tho fierce llames, and in several instances, it
was with the greatest dilhculty that slock
could be driven to plowed ground or other
places of safet The farmers in the route
of the fire and'in the vicinity, turned oul
en masse, and extinguished the fire, but not
