A Candidate.— Whenever a candi
date “bobs up serenely” and aggres
sively pushes for public favor and pa
tronage, it is the privilege and duty of
the people to investigate and examine
into the merits of the case and pass
judgment thereon and this they are not
very dilatory in doing, and when their
verdict is in favor of that candidate no
power on earth can worst him in gaining
what he seeks. And now comes Sam
Baldauf who announces himself as a
candidate for public favor and patron
age in the Holiday trade, and his rea
sons for the candidacy and the merits
of bis case are plainly set forth else
where in this issue. After reading
what he has to say, he wishes you to
visit bis place of business and “talk

Girls at It.—The girls have been
doing their share in the field this fall,
corn busking. The crop has been so
large that the girls had to drop the
work indoors and help out. Then the
fine weailier and good wages have of
fered further inducements and many
bright, honest dollars have been earned
by rosy-cheeked, enterprising girls on
the farms. Some of these will go
toward buying a wedding outflt, for
such girls are always in demand, and
if they do not marry early it is not for
lack of chances. We hope they will all
be happy. We hope the young men
who take these good practical girls in
their keeping will try to relieve them
of some of the hardships that oppress
their mothers. We hope they will try
to keep the bright roses in their cheeks,
the vivacious light in their faces, and
the healthful glow in their hearts.
They are the best part of the farm,—
take care of them.
The Charity Ball.— The charity
ball at Seevers’ hall was well attended
Thursday evening, and netted the Aid
Society about 3200.00. Never before
in this city has an effort to raise funds
for alleviating the sufferings of the
poor met with so much opposition,
some of it bitter and vindictive, and
from sources where something differ
ent was, with good reason, expected.
We have no words of censure for any
one, but praise is certainly due those
ladies and gentlemen who have worked
so untiringly for the financial success
of the ball. We don’t advocate that an
elastic conscience is altogether the cor
rect thing, but none are perfect, in
dividual belief to the contrary notwith
standing, and a conscience without any
“spring” at all is very liable to break
and go to pieces from trivial cause.
People, so ready to condemn methods,
should suggest a better plan for ac
complishing the desired result, and be
willing to go to work in that better
way and not pose as stumbling blocks in
the way of those who are content to
make the most of the means within
their reach. The ladies of the Aid So
ciety have worked hard in this as well
as in other matters pertaining to the
relief of the poor and needy of our city,
and they are grateful for the generous
aid extended them nearly everywhere,
without which they could not have suc

of delegates attending each year has
been increasing rapidly. At Mt. Pleas
ant this year 15 chapters were repre
sented by 75 delegates. Oskaloosa will
receive the convention in August, 1889,
and it is safe to say that all attending
members will be well received and en
tertained. Their President, Arthur G.
Spilman, of Fairfield, was here Friday,
looking over the ground and getting
acquainted. In the evening at the
home of Misses Annie and Gertie Spen

he met about 75 of our city members.

the hotel and harness shop were nearly
all saved. The Sentinel had but re

Oskaloosa College Lecture.—
Liston McMillen lectured two morn

past or forboding the future, basing his
line of thought on certain precepts of
“Sufficient unto the day is the trouble
“Take no anxious thought for the
“Now is the accepted time; now is
the day of salvation;”
“The Lord is a present help in time
of trouble,” not a past or future help—
but a present help.

“Tears for to-morrow love
Smile tliou to-day.”

Our Holiday Edition.—Accompa
nying to-day’s issue we greet our read
ers with our annual holiday edition or
supplement, forming as it does a hand
some souvenir to our subscribers and
a monument to the enterprise of our
business people. These special holi
day editions were inaugurated by The
Herald years ago, almost we might
say in the pioneer days of journalism
in lowa, and year by year it has ever
been the aim and purpose of The Her
ald to make them more and more
attractive, useful and sought after, un
til they have come to be looked for
ward to by our readers as a part and
parcel of the very life of their subscrip
tion and reading, and many of our sub
scribers have these annual editions
filed carefully away, and with each re
curring one bring forth !its predecessor
and compare the one with the other,
read over again last year’s and the year
before. This year we present one well
worthy the closest attention in every
line. Upon its pages are happy Christ
mas scenes surmounted with glad tid
ings from our merchants whose shelves
and counters are laden with the goods
mentioned and whose anxiety and abil
ity to please is not excelled by mer
chants anywhere, and to every line they
have we ask your closest attention, for
in their words you can place your con
fiJence and they deserve your patron
age. Each page also contains much
interesting reading matter that will be
found very appropriate for this fes
tival season. All in all we come to you
this year with the most entertaining,
most pleasant appearing and neatest
holiday supplement yet issued by the
country press of lowa, and excelled by
less than a third of a dozen of the more
metropolitan papers. In the enter
prise of holiday .issues the footsteps of
The Herald have been followed and
imitated in all ends of the State, many
of them worthy and many the reverse,
and for them all we wish prosperity,
and stand at the head of the proces
sion to bid them all a Merry Christmas
and a Happyy New Year.
Delightful Lecture.— Nothing so
good in the way of a lecture has been
given in Oskaloosa for a long time as
that by Dr. Bernard Bigsby, of England,
at the Presbyterian church, last night,
on “Arnold, Rugby and Tom Brown.”
It was an extempore talk, by a man
who was educated at Rugby, on the
system and habits of the English school
system, and was a revelation to all who
had not read “Tom Brown” of the se
verity of the discipline of these fam
ous schools. He described the sur
roundings of Winchester first, where
Dr. Arnold was educated, and made a
word-picture of such vivid coloring
that the fine old garden in front of the
head-master’s house, and the “dream
in stone” of the carving in the old
church, seemed visibly before the au
dience. Those who listened could
also see from the windows of the
school that pathetic lettering on the
hillside two miles off, covered by
the little homesick feet of the lonely
lad, who, unable to master the severe
tasks given him, was not permitted to
go home to the widowed mother, from
vacation to vacation, until at last his
little heart broke—the “Dulce Domum,”
Sweet Home—now cut so distinctly
through the green turf to the white
chalk beneath. There, too, is the old
iron gate covered with horseshoes, the
cards of the many kings who have vis
ited the historic school; and the moss
grown stones in the court left as they
were knocked from the wall at the time
of the Cromwell siege there. Then he
passed to Rugby, and to the master
work of the greatest schoolmaster that
ever lived. Dr. Thomas Arnold. He
illustrated the method by which Arnold
held the hearts of the boys, by a little
incident that was impressive. One of
the teachers complained to him that he
had one boy who was absolutely incor
rigible. “You should rejoice,” was the
quaint kind of consolation offered, “be
cause you have it now in your power
to make a man of one boy.” This is the
key to the great work of Dr. Arnold,
and the lesson is one for educators to
take to heart. He made men of his
boys. He played foot-ball with them,
and was their companion. He trusted
them and when compelled to punish
them they knew the pain was infinitely
keener to their revered head-master
than to them. But the great life was
cut short by such a tremendous drain
ou his vital forces, and when ill-health
forced him to resign he lived but a little
while, and died broken hearted. It was
a lecture so pleasing, so refined and so
suggestive that no intelligent teacher
and no thoughtful parent can afford to
have missed it. We have merely sug
gested the line of thought. It was
thoroughly wholesome and instructive.
Strange Freak.—The sensation
at Mitchellvillethe past week has been
the sudden disappearance of Dr. O. K.
Oarr, who went to Des Moines the first
of the week, negotiated an additional
loan of 81,000 upon his farm (heretofore
mortgaged for 82,000), squared up a few
outstanding bills in the capital city and
made himself scarce, after enclosing
8300 in a letter to his wife in which he
announced that when she received that,
bis last communication to her, he would
be in Canada; that he wished all who
bad heretofore known him as a friend
to regard him as dead, as they should
never see or hear from him again, etc.
Mrs. Carr, who is a most exemplary
woman, is, of course, greatly grieved
over her husb&nd’s action, does not be
lieve that he is far away, and looks for
his return as soon as he shall realize
the consequences to his family of this
ill-advised step. Mr. Carr’s financial
mat! era are not in bad shape, there is
no domestic trouble to which this set
can be traced, and, taken altogether, it
is one of the strangest of the many
strange acts of this strange and talented
man. His wife and family have the
sympitby of all who know them.—Col*

REAM.—Died, at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Will H. Patton, at Beacon, Saturday, December
8.1888, at 12:20 p. m., from old age, Mbs. Lydia
Ream, aged 88 years, 6 months and 8 days.
Funeral Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock from
Beacon M. E. church; interment in Old ceme
The deceased was born in Newholland, Lan
caster county. Pa.. July 1, 1800, and was married
to John Ream, in Lancaster county. Pa., August
11, 1822. She was the mother of ten children,
four of whom are living and were present at
her funeral. She came with her husband and
family from Pennsylvania to Oskaloosa. May 31.
1855, and the next day one of their daughters
died of cholera. Her husband died in 1873, and
siuce then she has made her home with her
daughter, Mrs. William Patton, where she re
ceived every attention by day and by night that
loving hearts and willing hands couid render.
For the last seven years she was not able to get
out and around alone, and for several months
she was helpless but patient, and endured the
infirmities of old age with entire resigns ion.
She w as raised In the German Reformed church
and was well instructed In the Holy Scriptures.
She remained In that church till about 1863.
when an effort was made to form a Christian
Union church to which she gave her name and
Influence lor the few years it remained in Bea
con. Her home was always open to ail minis
ters, and her gifts liberal to every good work.
Her Christian experience was unclouded and
full of hope. Much of her time was spent In
prayer for the blessing of God upon her family
and friends. The leaves thirty-three grand
childred and thirty-two great-granuchtldren.
Her funeral was largely attended. The minister
spoke words of comfort and instruction from
Rev. 7:14, and her body was consigned to rest In
the Old Cemetery at Oskaloosa. Alas! Mother
Ream is then dead! No, that cannot be. It is
not so easy for death to triumph over such a
noble and good woman. She has only restored
her frail and feeb e body to our common mother
earth, and her redeemed and punfled spirit to
our universal Father God. Faith lllumiues the
future while we sing, “Yet again we hope to
meet thee.” 8. H. Thomas.
KISSICK.—Died, Dec. 1, 1888, at the residence
of Obadiah Hull, Greenwood, Neb., Mb. James
L. Kissick, youngest son of the late Thomas
and Mary A. Kissick.
He was born In Mercer county, Penn., June
24, 1858, and removed with the family to Ma
haska county, lowa, In 1859, For the past two
years he has lived with his sister, Mrs. Dr. N
R. Hook, at Lincoln, Neb. At the time of his
sudden death he was making a farewell visit
with his sister, Mrs. Hook, at the home of his
old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Hull, preparatory to
coming back to his former home in Mahaska
county. He received his education in the com
mon schools of the country, where he was a
favorite, and later attended Oskaloosa High
School and Oskaloosa College. He taught for
a short time, but physically he was unable to
endure school work. Mentally he was a man
of more than ordinary ability. His ambition
was great, but nis strength was not sufficient
to cope with the sterner vocations of life.
He was left an orphao quite young, and for
19 years has made his home with his brothers
aad sisters. In a receut letter he said: “My
people are good to me; but if you are like/
am you will never cease to want a home of
your own.” How little we thought his wish
would so soon be realized. Although a con
stant sufferer he was cheerful and not down
cast, remembering that there were many who
had uelther home nor friend*. “Jimmie,” as
every one knew him, was a great reader, and,
although not partial to poetry, he recently
sent the following lines to a friend, as express
ive of his feelings:
“If I should die to-night.
My friends would call to mlud, with loving
Some kindly deeds the icy hands had wrought;
Some gentle words the frozen lips had said;
Errands on which the willing feet had sped;
Ihe memory of my selfishness and pride—
My hasty words, all would be set aside,
And so I should be loved and mourned to-night
“Oh friends, I pray to-night,
Keep not your kisses for my dead, cold brow,
The way is lonely, let me feel them now.
Think gently of me; I am travel worn.
My faltering feet are pierced by mauy a thorn.
Forgive, Oh hearts estranged, forgive, I plead!
When dreamless rest is mine, I shall not need
The tenderness for which I long to-night.”
Also these lines:
“When I am dead,
I would not have the storied stone
Placed o’er my grave, and then be left alone;
But I would have some things I once did love,
Ere I did leave this Joyous world above,
Placed o’er me. And each succeeding year,
I’d have my friends renew them, and oft lin
ger near,
With loving thoughts on the dear one laid be
And talk of times departed, long ago,
When I am dead.
‘•When I am dead.
Forgive!—Oh this I pray far more than all—
The anguish I have caused the dead, beyond
Think kindly on me as I lie so still,
So poor a subject for an angered will;
Think of some generous deed, some good word
Of hearts bound up I found all sad and bro
Think gently, when this last long rest is mine,
And gaze upon my form with looks benign.
When I am dead.
The funeral services at the home of Wm.
Kissick, Wednesday, Dec. 6, were conducted by
ltev. Keavs, who read some beautiful and com
forting selections of Serlpture, and made some
brief and appropriate remarks. "Jimmie”
united with the Congregational church of Os
kaloos in 1885. His life has been one of char
acteristic beauty, exemplary and Christian.
None knew him but to love him. *
A happy birthday surprise occurred at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Ruby, in
Adams township, on Monday, the loth Inst., be
ing the anniversary of the 36th birthday of Mrs.
Harah J. Ruby. Some days previous the bus
band, daughter and other relatives made the
arrangements, and issued Invitations on the sly
to the kl'tfolk of Mrs. Ruby, who Is a daughter
of John Nash, of this city. Monday morulng
Mrs. Ruby, as usua , commenced the week’s
washing. About 11 o’clock horses and buggies
began to arrive from all directions until ihe
barn lot was tilled. Mrs. R. saw what was up,
aud resolved to be equal to the occasion. The
washing was put aside, and lu a moment more
Mrs. R. was receiving her guests in costume fit
ting the occasion. Dinner followed the surprise.
There must have been lively competition amoug
the cake makers present, and, epicurean as we
are. we could not have awarded a premium,
where all was so good. Everything else about
the dinner was at par with the cake, and It re
minded us of all the good things at Thanksgiv
ing, Christmas and a wedding combined. Din
ner over, a social time was enjoyed by old and
young alike; but such venerable persons as Mrs.
Sarah Nash, grandmother of Mrs. Ruby, Mrs.
Joseph Davenport Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Ruby,
Mr. and Mrs. John Laughery, besides several
others, who. If not venerable, could hardly be
regarded as spring chickens, viz: Mr. and Mrs.
John Nash, Mr and Mrs. Ben McClain, Mr. aud
Mrs. Richard Nash, and last, but not the young
est, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ballinger.
Mrs. Ruby received valuable presents from
Mr. and Mrs. John Nash, Richard Nash, John
Laughrey, Ben McClain, Andrew Ruby. Mrs.
James and G. C. Nash. Mrs. Mary Colville, Mr.
Wesley Ruby, Grandmother Nash. Miss Cora
Martin and Will Young. Farewells were said,
and we separated, hardly expecting to all ever
meet again on a similar occasion.
