Deab Citizen: Don't think I'm n goiu' to write ye always aliout that sume election busitiess, 'cause there's n heap o thiugs to think alwut in this 'ere world, an' I alwnys did like to think when I was rouud a doin' light work. But I do wnut to tell ye how I done Bill Saunders up last Saturday. I'd been u telliu' John Harrison about this "proportional representa tion," an' ho went in for it, head over heels, if ho in a democrat an' I a Re publican. Yes, ho ngreed with me, he did. He's irot more sense than auybody on our creek,(unless it's me, an' I nevor talk about myself.) But Bill Saunders stood by a listenin', an' he's o' that kind as can't see nothin' in tho world but the tail o' the roost er, nu' he broke right in an' says: "What'H the matter with yo, John? We DemocrntH nllers git our share in tho legisfdtiiro, tnko the hull state together,--n heap more'n we'd git with this new rinkttim o' your'n, I'm mast afeard. What do ye want with any thing letter!" "'Taiu't that," says Johu. "All we want is fair play. But I do want to have a share in my party's do'tu's ray self. True enough, there's men of our party in other counties what nro able to elect their own men, an' then those men do their best to represent them fellers an' us, too, a hard job, I'm a thinkin', but here inthis coun ty I've beeu a votin' for twenty odd years. in' it's all like votin' into a hole. When I was visitin in Frank fort I wanted to find a man that was my representative, an' I couldn't find him nowhere." An' then I broke iu. "John," says I, "you've told the truth, but you hain't told it all. Just supxse, for it's a close year, you know, just be n uj)mfintj I say, that we Republi cans had I UK) majority in the Stato, an' that this was evenly divided, 10 majority in each county of the 119. Then where'd we be, an' whore'd you be!" "Gracious sakes, Silo," says he, "you'd havo the whole one hundred members iu the legislature, an' wo wouldn't hnvo a blamed nianl" "But here's another jwssibilitude," says 1. "Suppose, just tuppose now, that n crauky an' mean new party should start up, uu' try to cut our country schools down to throe months ngaiu, or to take all our tempurance laws away, Au' supposo half the men iu half the comities went in for it, while the other counties were chuck full of men who were dead agiii.it. Then quarter of our people 'ml lie for it, an three quartern 'ml be agin it, wouldn't they, Bill!" "Hidf of it half is u qtinrter," saja John; but Bill was still a ligurin', for he didn't know nothin' nlxmt Arith metic. But 1 went right on au' said: "Just seo what 'ltd happen. Only it quarter o' the Stato 'ud bo for it, but that quarter 'ud hold the power in half tho counties, an' if they had a fow votes extra to tip the beam, they'd put CO or maybe 51 inon iu the legislature, au' pass thoir mean old lawa iu spite of us all I" KENTUCKY , Au' then Bill, he wanted to say su'thin', so ho says, "What if they did pass 'em, SiloT We couldn't stand it, an' we wouldu't havo to stand it, , nuther. Them three quarters cu'd take ther Winchesters au' lick out ' the one quarter, I reckon." "Yes, of course," says I, "but that 'ud n n revolution, an' that's a Inst resort when everything elso has gone ' wrong au' failed. Now looky hero, jJolm an' Bill both," says I; "when everylxxly is represented neeordin' to 'his real strength nn' importance, I things nre balanced up oven, an' : there ain't no danger of a revolution, but with a law fixed so as 20 per cent o' tho voters might bo scattered so as to out-voto the other"! percent, there's dnuger of a revolution tome timr. "Of course," says I, lookin' straight at Bill, "I'm talkiu' now about intelligent un good for-su'thin' citi zens. Horses can t vote, says I, "but there ain't no likelihood o' them re- bellin' an' breakiu' up the govern ment. Idiots an' lunatics can't vote neither, au' I don't think it 'ud bo much harm if they who cau't react an' can't mark their own ballots wns relieved o' tho right o' votin'." Then Bill got mad as a rattlesnake, for he's the only man on our creek past forty who can't read and write, an' he kuowed it; un' he always bragged as how readin' an' cypheriu' didn't hoo no corn, an' he knowed it; an' I was election clerk, an' had to mark his ballot for him, au' ho knowed that, too. So Bill, he went off an' talked the sassiest kind about me, but I didn't care a speck, an' you wouldn't, Mr. Citizen, would you, if you d a been iu my placot Yours truthfully, Silas Shingles. The Lyceum Course. Xino years ago Prof. L. V. Dodge startoda lycetim lecture oourso for tho benefit of the citizens and for the students. He has maintained this ever since, at great lalwr and through munv discouragements. For several years tho course was run at a loss, but last year it paid its way and redeemed part of the previous losses. V e hope that this year we may all patrouize the lectures us faithfully ns we did last year. We got used to having those excel lent eutcrtaiiimeuts in our midst, aud often fail to appreciate them at their full worth. If a lecture is not quite so fine as the ono before it, or as whut the same man gave us lust year, we are apt to criticise it severely. But the poorest lecture that has ever ap peared iu tho course was well worth the time it took to attend it. Aud as for the admission fee, what do wu make money for, auywayt Is it not to feed our minds and warm our hearts, as well as to food uud clothe and warm our bodieat This year's course opoim uext Sat urday with tho Meigs Misters, one of thu very finest Indies quartets iu tho world. Barely indeed do they re ceive less than 1100 n night, and ofteu more. Such u musical treat U some thing absolutely now iu our midst, aud will long bo regretted by any who may chauce to miss it.
