Bot> Burdotte'a Advioo to His Son. The following to the boys from the pen of Bob Burnette is good: My eon, your brow is cloudedd: something has happened that didn’t and doesn’t agree with you. Were you neglected in the invitations? Didn’t you get on any of the corn raittees? Were you overlooked in the convention? Hasn’t the aecreta ! ry writteo you a private letter asking your advice on the campaign? Have you been coldly passed over for men of lees ability? Can you see clearly that everything is going wrong be cause you have not been consulted? Have you been directly snubbed by inferior people? I thought as much. At your time of life such things are very liable to occur. They use to happen with me now and then. You will grow wiser as you grow older, unless you take the other chute; then you will grow more foolish; and there is only one cure for an old fool, my boy—that is death. Ordi nary death won’t cure him, either. “Though thou shouldest bray him in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, i yet will not his foolishness depart ! from him.” See how aw fully dead jhe has to be kiliod! Smashing him only makes him worse. | But, now, it any or all of these j slights have been put upon you, lis ten to me, my tender Taleinachus. Don’t show your sores. Oh, don’t shew your sores. They are not I pleasant things to look at. nobody wants to see them,and they will heal much more rapidly and naturally and healthfully if you don’t expose them. Keep them covered. Don’t show them to anybody but your surgeon, and don’t show them to him unless you have to. And, don’t look at them yourself. Leave them alone under the healing plasters of time and the cool compresses of forgetful ness, and you’ll be surprised some day when you do happen to think of them, to find that they have healed by the first intention without a scar. Don’t tell people when you are hurt; don’t tell everybody how keenly you feel a slight when, perhaps, there was no slight intended. Dont get yourself snubbed by people who nev er see you, and who don’t know you and never think oi you. And, if you really are hit, and hit hard, it belit tles your manhood and it drives away human sympathy when you lift up your voice and howl on the streets. Keep quiet about it. Don’t whine; don’t yell. One day, at the investment of Vicksburg—it was on the memorable 22nd of May—during a lull in the desultory skirmishing that preceded the assault, while I was lying close to the surface of the great, round globe which we inhabit, and wishing I could get a little closer to it, we heard a tremendous howling and shrieking, and down the dusty road from the front came a blue-jacketed skirmisher on the trot, holding one hand up in the other, and the hand he was holding up had uo thumb on it. It hnrt like the mischief, I have no doubt, but it was only a thumb after all, and how the fellow was howling about it. lie was a brave man or be wouldn’t have been where he conld have lost that thumb. But you would think it was the only thumb in the United States army and that no one else on the skirmish line had been hit that morning. So the soldiers saw only the funny side of the picture, and a perfect chorus of howls, in vociferous imita tion of the man’s own wails, went shrieking up from the sarcastic line of men who were waiting their turn to face death. In a minute another soldiei came walking back from the skirmish line. He was walking slowly and steadily, never a moan foil from his compressed lips, though they were whiter that his bronzed face, and he held his hand against his breast. The silence of the death chamber fell upon the line in an in stant, as the figure of the soldier moved along the road with the air of a conqueror. Half a dozen men sprang to his side. Tenderly they laid him down in the shadow of a great oak; his lips parted to speak a message to some one a thousand miles away, and the lino was short one man for the coming assault. He died of his heart; but he died like a king. Oh, my boy; don’t yell the lungs out of you over a mashed thumb, when, only three files down the lines, a soldier salutes his captain before he faces about to go to the rear with a death bullet in his breast. You can’t help getting hurt. There isn’t a safe place in the whole line. There are cruel people m the world who love to wound us; there are thought less, heedless people who don’t think; there are people who don’t care, and there are thick-skinned people, who are not easily hurt themselves, and they think mankind is a thick hided race; in fact the air is full of darts and arrows and singing bullets all the time, and it’s dangerous to be *af^anywhere. But when you do get hit—as hit you certainly will be —don’t ‘‘holler” any louder than you have to. Grin and bear it the best you can. There are some people so badly hurt they mast moan; do you forget your own hurt in looking after them. “Relly Round the Flag, Boys!” The Grand Army Reunion to be held at Milwaukee (August 26th to \ 31st inclusive), will, in many respects, bo one of the most noteworthy of commemorative events. There will be no lack of distinguished speakers. Hut the most attractive features will be the “tie that binds” men who have fought, starved and bled for a sacred cause, the renewal of old-time associ nlions, the rehersal of war experi ences, and the rekindling upon the altar of patriotism of undying devo tion to “one flag and one country’.” I Veterans and their friends will be [•leased to know that from all sta tions on the Cuicauo, Rock Islanix •Sc Pacific Railway, on its maiu lines and branches both east and west of the Missouri River, the price of tickets has been placed for this j occasion at one fare for the round I trip, while children under twelve and over five years of age will bo charged only one-half this excursion rate, or one-quarter the regular fare for the round trip. Tickets will be for sale at all principal stations on the Rock Island Route August 21 to Aug. 28, ’B9, inclusive, good for continuous passage to Milwaukee at any time between these dates, and good for return passage leaving Milwaukee on any date between Aug. 37 and Sept. 5, 1889, iuolusivc. Holders of such tickets who desire to make side excursions from Milwaukee to points beyond in any direction, can, by sur rendering their return coupon tickets for safe keeping to the Joint Agent at Milwaukee, have them honored to original starting point where ticket was purchased (by proper indorse ment), on any date not later than Sept. 30, 1889. Hon. James Swift, member from this district of the muchly abused late Seventh General Assembly, was up from Lamar last Friday, viewing the “Forest City.” Ho took home a bunch of wheat, fiye feet high and containing fifty-two stalks. “The best I have ever seen,” remarked the honorable gentleman. And he fur ther addod that “Rocky Ford was a wonderfully prolific country.” Rocky Ford Watermelon. A. M. Nicholas and O. G.

SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE. Denver, July 1, 1889. To County Superintendents, School Directors and Teachers: Normal Institutes for the instruc tion of teachers will be held through out the State as follows: District No. 1, Boulder August 12 to 24. District No. 2, Golden, August 5 to 17. District No. 3, Canon City, August 12 to 24. District No. 4, Red Cliff, August 12 to 24. District No. 5, Ouray, August 19 to 31. District No. 6, Monte Vista, Au gust 19 to 31. These will be the first Institutes held in the State under Section 81 of the School Laws of Colorado. Their success will depend upon the efforts of school officers and tdachers. Their importance to iudi vidual teachers and to the education al work of the State is incalcuable. Every porson who expects to teach in Colorado during the coming school year should attend. One afternoon of each Institue'will be set apart for the discussion of subjects pertaining to the duties of School Directors. The Conductors and Instructors are among the ablest educators in ; the State. A rate of one and one-fifth fares is promised by the railroads. I make the following special rec ommendations: That County Super intendents add ten per cent, to the standing in examination of each ap plicant for a certificate who attends one of these Institutes. The School Directors allow their teachers for the coming year at least one week’s wages for attendance. That County Superintendents have this circular published in their local papers, and do all in their power to urge and assist teachers and directors to be present. Respectfully, Fkkd Dick, Supt. of Public Instruction. Office of Superintent of Schools Prowers County. Colorado. Lamar, Colo., July ]2th, 1889. In addition to Snpt, Fred Dick’s circular, I will add that the very lowest rates on board and other ac commodations will be secured by our executive committee for teachers and others who attend the Institute at Canon City. A circular will soon be published giving all desired in formation regarting railroad fare, board and institute work. The ex ecutive committee desires to know how many teachers will be in attend ance from each county. If those in this county who expect to attend will drop me word by July 31st, I will notify the committee. Yours very truly, F. E. Irwin, Supt. Two men were sent np for fifteen days for stealing copies of the Chief tain from the doors of subscribers. I This very common act of meanness was in these cases very properly pun ished, no doubt.

NUMBER 6. The bedbug (Acanthia lectularia) has found its way wherever mao ha* pushed, and is too well known to need description. Its odor and the effects of its bites are so universally known, that the word “bedbuggy* has entered oar literature as descrip tive of a particular class of odors. The original home of the pest is probably southeastern Europe and the Asiatic and African countries around the eastern end of the Medi terranean. It was introduced into England at least as early as 1503, and doubtless reached America soon after extensive settlement. Certain English writers have endeavored to father the pest on America, but there is strong evidence that it was known to Aristophanes, Dioscordes, Pliny and Aristotle. The adult bug is well adapted from its flattered shape to entering narrow crevices in the joints of bed steads or oracked walls, or other con venient places of concealment. In such places the females lay their eggs. These eggs are white, of an oval form, slightly narrowed at one end, and are terminated by a cap which breaks off when the young escapes. The young bugs are whit ish and at first nearly transparent. With plenty of food and an even temperature the species will multiply with great rapidity; while under con trary "conditions reproduction may be greatly retarded. Adult bugs have been known to remain alive for more than a year without a single meal. It is this fasting capacity, to gether with its form so well adapted for hiding, which render it so diffi cult to thoroughly disinfect an in fested house. Here benzine must be our strong est weapon. Finely sprayed with a hand atomizer it will penetrate the minutest cracks and is sure death to the insect in all its stages, including the eggs. It is a certain remedy, and used thoroughly will destroy every bug in a house. Kerosene is almost as good, and is a little more lasting in its effects. Many preventives have been advised, but none are perma nent. One of the best formulas .for a substance with whioh to paint the cracks in a.bedstead or the walls is ;• one ounce corrosive sublimate, half pint alcohol, and one-quarter pint spirits ef turpentine.—Good House keeper. Let a convention assemble, com posed of three hundred farmers and ten lawyers. If the farmers are all on one side, and the lawyers all pull together, the lawyers will have every* thing their own way. The farmers are afraid ot their shadows, and dare not speak up in publio meetings! Then the lawyers would divide them up on non-essential side issues, and get them to fighting like cats, —Fort Dodge (Iowa) Sun, Those who cherish the “unlucky Friday” superstition must regard the present year with particular distrust. It came in and will go out on Friday; there are four months in it having five Fridays each; the longest and the shortest of its days each falls on Friday; and its entiro number of Fridays is fifty-three. A man will be kept busy to dodge all these ill omened conditions. Globe-Demo crat, Tha county commissioners have declared all section and township lines on the public domain as public highways.
