The Courier has all along seiesored its Edi
torials Msfcmiy from the Chicago Inter-Ocean,
and particularly the Inter-Ocean's inflation
articles. Last week, however, it scissored a
very good editorial against inflation from a
"Sound Carrency" paper. It either mads a
mistake or else it proposes hereafter to advo
cate noth sides, so that if the Democratic
Inflation wins in Ohio it will be in a poeition to
aay " We told yon so," or if the Republican
and Democratic "Sound Currency" doctrine of
New York, wins, it can also say " We told yon
so," too. It is an attempt to nde two b re,
be all things to all men, in a very small way.

The Teachers and other educators of south
western Viehi.rau aro invited to I present at
an Institute, to bo held at tho Court House, in
Kalamazoo, beginning at two o'clock 1'. M., of
Monday, October 11th, and lasting through
Friday evening. Among those who are to take
part in the conduct of the Institute are Mr, and
Mrs. H A. Ford, 1 'resident brooks, Sunenn
tuudent i.eorgo, ex-ilounty Superintendent
Hall, and ten other experienced and successful
teachers. The work of the institute will be
conductod. as far as possible, in tho samo man
ner as regular class work, the topics treated
embracing the various studies of tho common
school. School government, and the best meth
ods of rendering tho scool room attractive,
will also reeoive their share of atteution.
Arrangements are being made to secure re
duced ratos for boarding for all who attend.
Aside from board, there will bo no expeuse con
nected with the institute. It will pay all who
intend teaching, as well as township superin
tendents and others counectod with the man
agement of schools, to be prosent throughout
the entire session. It is expected that a num
ber of the township supeinteudents will hold
special examinations at the close of the Insti
From the Muskegon Chronicle. Bept. 28.
On Friday, Bept. 24tb, 1875, about 6 o'clock
In the evening a girl was stolen from her pa
rents near this city, and all efforts, thus far,
to trace the trail of the thief have failed.
L G. burke the captor is an unmarried man,
about 40 years old, about 6 feet 1 inch high,
weighs about 180lbs., light sallow complexion
with black wooly hair, indicating negro blood
in his veins. Claims to be a Cauadian.
Sarah Jane Brooks, the girl, was 12 years
old in March last, hair dark brown, eyes very !
black, face rather long, a pit of the size of a
pea caused by a boil, on one temple, and
tongue full of small pits on the sides and end. j
For several years the thief has lived near tho j
home of her father in Laketon township,
Muskegon Co., Mich., and petted the girl with
candy and the like, gradually undermining her
affections from her parents and persuading j
her into disregarding parental authority. The I
father is a fanner not well to do in worldlv I
goods, but nevertheless possessing the natural
love of parent for offspring, and the family
are thrown into tho deepest grief over the lost
lamb from then fold.
Any information of either the captor or girl
will be gladlv received. Communicate with
Major Win. L Kyan, Sheriff of Muskegon Co.,
Muskegon, Mich., who offers (100 reward for
the approtiensiou of tho thief and the return
of the girl.
Will the press of the country have the kind
ness to call attention to this affair.
Ed. Tuna N out r xax kb. When the Hon.
Schuyler t 'olf ax was announced as t orator
to deliver the addresB at the Fair at Lawrence,
it was received by those Democrats who believe
that " poeco hath her victories as well as war,"
tbo same as tho announcement of any other
private citizen, whose name and fame are
known throughout tho broad extent of the
land. Hut the " Dimmererats" aud blather
skites, like "Captain" J. li. ilendryx, could
not let such an opportunity pass without in
dulging in lhngi and venting their spite. Had
Mr. Colfax como here as a politician seeking
political honors and emoluments, any criticism
of his past indiscretions would have been en
tirely in place. Hut ho camo at the invitation
of an agricultural society to deliver an oration,
and all those, who attouded the Fair a Law
rence. will testify fo the admirable manner in
which he did his share of tho work. Mr.
liondryx's firet letter which appeared in tbo
Jhm'ur RejHtdsfMMt, who Editor lends him
his columns in lieu of pots -aes, turnips, chick
ens, etc., was treated with ttie silent contempt
it deserved. Hut in last week's issue, we find
another of tbo same sort, poisoned with venom
and malignity, which should DOS pass MM
buked. These letters, for brilliancy of non"
sense MDd lenvth, breadth, and depth of fgot
ism, have no equal, and their auth r ought to
have a monument more enduring than the
brass in his cheek Kow tho burden of this
old man's lament is not to be asenbod to Mr.
Colfax's connection with Credit klobiher. but
to the fast that he was uot invited to address
the farmers of Lawrence. It is believed, by
those whose knowledge of the faeti warrant
the estimate, that the receipts were $400 in
oxceee of what they would have been but for
Mr ( ol fax's presence. Does any one suppose
tbat Mr. Ilendryx'e stale pieee, which is farail-
iar to every school-boy in Hamilton, would
! have added 40u cents to the receipts. On the
contrary, would not some of bis townsmen
who have been unwilling listeners to his out
! burets of eloquence, have staid at home and
j d?u potatoes, or done something else equally
! useful and ontertaining ? All honor to the
aaUant old " Captain" as a sold er, but aa an I
