Have the Republican ring consul

Will the people vote their senti
ments this fall or will they allow the
politicians to say how they shall vote?
The clxs of men who never did nor
never will scratch a ticket and vote as
their fathers did are telling farmers
and mechanics how they should vote.
It is as much to the interests of the
Republican ring to have the Demo
cratic ring control the offices of the
county as it is to tho Democratic ring.
They share the profits of the plunder.
It is a common occurrence to hear
Democrats claiming that a great many
Republicans will vote the Democratic
ticket rather than see the National
ticket successful. We don't doubt this
as the only difference between the old
parties is the name.
Why don't the Tribune hunt up
some of that fraud it spoke of in its
circular it issued on the eve of the
election last fall? We will give you
the full benefit of it Mac when the
ti me comes. It's in pickle.
"Every laboring man nhould vote

tried both the Democratic and Repub

way "I have been there." All the people
of Texas want, is to be treated decently,
and if that ia done a more hospitable and
social class of citizens can nowhere be found-
I have been in the state about two months
and have seen but one little fuss and that
was between northern men. All Texas
wants is northern enterprise, and that must
be brought here by northern men. We
already hare many of them here, but there
is still room for thousand more, and if
they come and don't get as lazy as the Tex
an are, a fortune will certainly be their
reward. I hope Ohio will be well represen
ted in Texas. Yours very respectfully.
It is again being circulated by cer
tain parties belonging to the ring that
the Herald nor Tribune did not pay
back the ninety-nine dollars that they
received for publishing the Commis-
One of the most foolish ideas in the world
is to think we can act entirely independent
of one another. From the first of breath
to the last of death we have to depend upon
onr fellows. No man ever yet was able to
go through life without assistance; without
receiving favor; no day passe3 without
receiving favors; no day passes without hav
ing need of them. In tens of thousands of
ways we are indebted for food, clothing
shelter. Life the most savage and free from
luxury and association has necessities that
must be supplied by another hand, and sick
ness and accident come alike to all.
When we hear man or woman talking
about "getting aloDg without them," we
incline to the opinion that they are well,
to speak mildly talking rubbish. The
full-powered and strong-armed man is as
much a slave to laws of his being and sur
rounding sas a little child. It is boldest of
of nonsense to dream of acting supremely
independent. Nothing in material nature
is enabled to do so, and can man? The sea
U dependent upon the rivers, the rivers up
on the brooks upon I the springs. Every
one thing is obliged to lean upon some oth
er thing, and it is the union of the small
that goes to make np the strength and per
fectness of the great. JNo one star is in
dependent of the others, and the beauty of
the solar system is the complete dovetail
ing together and harmony in working.
There are men, and men who boast of in
dependence when there is absolutely no
such thine. Even the independence o1
money is uncertain' as the breath of the
breath of the wind. A financial hurricane
may come on the morrow; a fire blot out
in a night, and the millionaire he a pauper.
And so it is with everything mundane.
The talk of independence is simply ri
diculous. The old story of the "Discon
tented Pendulum," is a striking illustration
and the lungs might as well tell the heart
that hereafter it was "giong it alone," as j
man to cut loose from his kind. We are
and must be dependent. There is no one
instance in which we can be otherwise.
The rash suicide says he will free himself
from life and its troubles; will be indepen
dent. Yet his very latest and sinful act
groves the fallacy ofanother, without pis
tol and powder and ball, he could not have
done the deed, and by the hands of those
from whom he boast independence, he must
be buried.
Independence (of this charncte) is false
in theory and abortive In practice. It is
simply 'bosh' of the most pronounced kind,
and the sooner man bows to the laws he
moat obey, and learns the folly of his boasts
the more smoothly he will live and tran
quilly go down to the "dark valley" none
can ever avoid.

Killing Quack Grass.
In destroying any weed by not allowiug
it to breathe above ground, the experi
ment will result in entire failure if the la
bor is occasionally intermitted so as to al
low the weeds to recover from their tempo
rary smothering. By close work, Canada
thistles may be completely killed in four
months; by occasional remission, they wil
last one hundred years. Prof. Beal say
he has no trouble in killing quack grass'
by cultivating the land every three or fou1
days, never longer; the leaver never show"

nor recovery. A piece of rich moist soil
was plowed in autum, cultivated every

Are High Schools Lawfully Maintained.
Attorney General Pillars has promulga
ted an opinion, published in pamphlet
form, on the powers of Beards of
Education to established and maintain
High Schools, with-scientilic and classical
courses, and Normal and Polytechuio
Schools. All the legal phases of the sub
ject are exhaustively reviewed, in response
to a request from School Commissioner
Burns. The conclusion arrived at by the
Attorney General is, "that a Board of
Education is authorized, by the letter
true spirit, and the meaning of the law
enacted in obedience to the requirments
of section z, Article b, of the Constitution
to establish such schools, with such grades,
and with such courses of instruction in the
various departmens of education as, in its
wisdom, the public good may seem to re
quire, .bach JtSoard of Education has the
power, under the law, to determine for it
self the minimum or maximum of the in
struction it will furnish, limited only by
the funds raised for school purposes, and at
its command. If these broad powers are a

Owing to the early issue of The Pit ess
last week we received the following too
late for publication. Ed.
Ma. Editor. Within the past week
some inhuman wretch vented his (or her)
pent up animosity against the friends of
James Ash, deceased, by defacing his name
on the beautiful Granite Monument erect
ed at his grave id the M . E. Cemetery at
this place. This is an act more vile by far
than the robbing of graves, which has caus
ed so much excitement in Cincinnati re
cently; for in this case the crime is the out
growth of pure cuesednees, committed for the
sole purpose of gratifying the evil desire
of a devil in human form. While the grave
robber plies his tarde simply for gain. There
tare well grounded suspicions as to who did
the deed and in all probability suffioient
?roof may be gathered to convict the crim
nal. This is not the first time that the sacred
dead have been disturbed by doubtless this
same offender, who is a disgrace to human
ity and who deserves the privilege of no
other burial ground than the Potters field.
We may expect such outrages and even
worse if possible so long as any of the better
class of our citizens are willing to counten
ance suchHase and cowardly fiends who
are strangers to the first principles of honor
ami virtue.

Live for Something.
To be constantly busy is to be always
happy. Persons who have suddenly ac
quired wealth, broken up their active pur
suits, and begun to live at ease, waste away
and die in a very short time. Thousands
would have been blessings to the world,
and added to the common stock of happi
uess, if they had been content to remain a
humble sphere and earned each mouthful
of food that nourished their bodies. But
no; fashion and wealth took possession of
them, and they were completely ruined
They ran away from peace and pleasure,
and embraced a lingering death.
Ye who are sighing for the pomp and
splendor of life, beware! Ye know not
what ye wish! No situation, however ex
alted no honors, however glorious can
yield you enjoyment while discontent lurks
in your bosom.
The secret of happiness lies in this: to
be always content with your lot, and never
soght for splendor or riches, or magnifi
cence of fashion and power.
Persona who are busy, and go cheerfully
to their daily tasks, are the least disturbed
by the fluctuations of business, and at
night sleep composedly.
Beware of discontent, then of sighing
and loDging for that which may never be.
Go about your duties as one who expects
to-morrow may be your last, and be happy
even in that thought!
Live for something; if it be so little. Bet
ter to look back on the little you have done
than sigh over wasted hours and misspent
time. There is work for every one to do,
and he who labors with a willing heart and
hand will one day reap the reward of his
Live for something. Let every leaf in
the volume of the year bear some mark
oi yours upon its pages. Let every turn of
Time's old iron wheel give some account of
well-spent days. Live so that your deeds
will be remembered long after you have
ceased to be. Live so that your virtues will
excel your vices, and shine brighter and
brighter as the years grow lass and less.
Live. so that you can look to the past with
out regretting that you have done too little
in this life- Labor for something noble
and praiseworthy. Live so that in passing
from this to another shore you will leave
behind you
"Footprints on the sands of time"
Live for something. There is no one
but who can do some good no one who
need say I can occomplish nothing none
who need spend their days in idleness. Life
is a blank book, every page of which must
bear something worthy of record or a blot
that never can be eraced. Then be mind
ful what you leave upon its leaves; for it
will tell in time and eternity what yon
have lived for, and He who keeps a record
of our deeds will reward us accotdingly.

Half Fare on the
Rail Road to
Austin Texas, June 15. 1878.
Kuitob Pkkss. My Dear Sir: When
leaving Somerset, I was requested by many
friends to write them, and let them know
how I liked Texas, its people, climate &e.
I now propose to comply with their request
through the columns of your valuable pa
per. As a state Texas is truly inexhausti
ble in its variety of resources. Its rich and
fertile psraries are covered with a luxuri
ant growth of yery nutritious grass, inter
spersed with flours or rarest beauty and fra
grance, over which roam large herds of
cattle, sheep, horses, both tame and wild
sod deer, antelope, wild turkeys, duck,
geese, quail, plover, and in the North West
ern portion of the slate there are still large
herds of buffaloes.
Its climate cannot be excelled, the atmos
phere seems to give health and vigor to all
who are blessed with the privilege of en
joying it. It is the invalids health resort
and the poor mans paradise, for here, by
industry and enterprise he can realize his
dreams of a happy heme. The lands of
Texas will produce anything that can be
grown in the North, and crops and fruits
that cannot be grown north of Texas. The
wheat crop this year ia pot at from 15 to 40
bnshels per acre, and I never saw better corn
any where. We now have in onr market
new wheal flour, roasting ears at 5 els per
doa. cabbage, squashes, tomotoes, melons,
peaches, plums, figs, and in fact anything in
the way of fruits vegetables and meats that
you could desire to eat.
The people of Texas are social, polite,
obliging and in many cases quite intelli
gent. In the country the farmer and his
Good Advice to Girls,
bpeaking of the anxiety of girls to get
through girlhood hurriedly and get into
womanhood, or rather into young lady
hood, without awaiting to enjoy the beau
tiful season of girlhood, Bishop Morris
said: "Wait patiently, my children. Go
not after your womanhood; let it come to
you. Keep out of the public view. Cul
tivate refinement and modesty. The cares
ana responsibilities ot lite will come soon
enough. When they come you will meet
them, I trust, as true woman should. But,
oh! be not bo unwise as to throw away
your girlhood. Rob not yourself of this
beautiful season, which wisely spent, will
brighten all your future life."

The North Pole has regained its fascina

Therefore, we assemble in National Con

principles and invite all patriotic citizens
to unite in an effort to secure financial re
