Mount Atb, Iowa, April 10,1875.
Ed. Would:— Once more we hail
'with pleasure the advent of the bri_
tfaced little Would in our family, and
'through it we get such news as we
cannot get in any other way, though
'we get our Eastern papers, and with
them all the eastern news, we still feel
om interest in Idaho affaira. I presume
that the readers of the World— or at
least the Idaho portion of them—are
mot much acquainted with this neck
of {he Lord's moral vineyard, and con
vuequently everything from here will be
Ringgold is the name of our county,
4 uid it is in the southern tier of coun
ties in the state next to the Missouri
State line. The country is well wa
tered and has considerable timber, al
though in this respect it is somewhat
behind its sister counties, but as the
farmers are planting out trees, Ring
gold bids fair to become well timber
ed. Wells are bored with large au
gers for that pupose. There are sev
eral men in the county with these au
gers and it makes a paying business.
I asked one of them the other day
what he would charge for boring in
•case he got no water, and received the
somewhat edifying response : "Water,
hell, or China." The bored w ells are
walled with brick, or when there is
none to be had they use lumber for
There is # limestone in the eastern
part of the county and one or two
lime kilns. Kb coal or minerals have
been found as yet, but we think that
'Coal can be found; and as the county
^offers $500 to the person who finds it,
the prospect is we will soon be using
-coal for our fuel. The principal rivers
of the county are the east, middle and
west forks of Grand river. Each of
them have plenty of timber, and the
•"divides" between them form the farm
ing land. We have no railroads as
vet, but one is surveyed through
Mount Ayr, the county seat. Mount
Ayr is a flourishing little town but it
was born
Vo vast« its s weet nes s on the dteert air.
For all the other places of note torn up their
Xoeee np at it in contempt.
Three banks supply the people with
cash, and five stores with the other
ueces8arie8 of life. Two hotels feed
the poor devils of boarders with bad
grub, and eight doctors give them
rhubarb to work it off. Ten lawyers
keep the county in an uproar and
from fifteen to twentv ministers deal
<»ut the salvation. (It is said they
3lever make a misdeal, and can turn the
right trump every time.) Mount Ayr
is to have an eight thousand dollar
school house for the benefit of two or
three forty dollar school ma'ms.
The county has nearly a hundred school
bouses and about sixteen hundred
"young ideas" that are taugat how to
«hoot by one hundred and twenty
schoolma'ms—mostly old maids; or
jjerhaps 1 had better say "ladies of a
certain age." Some of the younger
«mes are pretty, but as a general thing
the pretty ones don't hang on long.
So one but Brick Pomeroy can do the
schoolma'm question justice, so I will
drop it
Literary societies and spelling
schools are getting quite popular.
r fhere are several literary societies in
liie county, but most of them are closed
for the summer months. I have at
tended one in which eloquence was
■poured forth in streams o j such ques
tions as, "Resolved," (always re
solved,) "that hoppergrasses are good
tor turkeys;" Resolved that the head
is the butt end of asheep,"&c. Young
Tyroe come forward and assure us
1 tod ft little dog and I fad him on chicken,
And many mote things equally inter
esting and instructive.
concerts are also very fash
paying twenty-five
fifty cents for the pleas
to the new
Dan Tucker" and "
lies," &c. Dances
ing out of fashion;
wn's body
are go
è*éh lî getting
drunk is out of the fashion now, since
the crusaders went for us, and it has
become the fashion to join the temper
ance and anti-tobacco societies, of
which there are two of each kind in
the county. As I haven't got acquaint
ed with my mother-in law, I haven't
"jined." Marrying is quite popular
here, and in fact 1 think it is popular
everywhere but iu Brooklyn. I have
known it to happen several times this
winter, and nobody seriously hurt ei
ther. One young lady was to be
married about a month ago, but the
bridegroom hasn't put in his appeer
ance yet She was married about two
weeks since to another fellow. Now
Mr. Editor if you want a wife come to
Iowa to get one; you can start early
in the week anil get home in time to
issue the World without appointing a
sub. Hoping I haven't bored you with
too long a letter, I close.
Will B. Cole.
How the People are Taxed.
A commercial writer in the Cincin
nati Enquirer has taken the pains to
figure out of the confused tax legisla
tion of Congress, with its mixed ad
valoiem and specific duties, the amount
of revenue assessed on common arti
cles. He makes the following state

Could ingenuity go further in sing

bear taxes for oppressive imposition ?

highest.—Democratic Times.
