respectable audience composed
of the teachers in attendance at the
Normal School, and a number of citi
zens who are interested in education
al matters, listened, last evening, to
a good practical lectnrc on the school
and the best means by which scholars
can be prepared for the duties of life.
Prof. Von Coelln, (pronounced Von
Kol'n, we believe'), is not n handome
man. but a more practical or usetul
man for the position he occupies,
Slate Snpt. of Schools, it would be
difficult to find. Common sense is a
prominent factor in his make-up.
His ideas in regard to the teacher's
duties in training children not for
the school but for the afl'airs of life,
were so clearly expressed nnd so apt
ly illustrated, that we arc sure much
good soed was sown in the minds of
the teachers present. It is a little
strange that more of our citizens do
not attend these lectures. We don't
remember seeing a single member of
our School. Board there.
Walter Cuylc, of this city, was In
jured by one of the trains of the Iowa
Central"It. It- Stiles & Burton com
nienced suit for damages against the
company, which is in the hands of
B. Grinnell, Receiver. Whereupon
(Irinnell filed complaint charging
(iuvlc and his attorney s,Stiles & Bur
ton, with contempt of the I". S. Court
in commencing suit without obtain
ing leave for that purpose and they
were summoned to lveokuk on yes
terday. before Judge Love, to show
cause why they should not be attach
ed and lined as for contempt. The
application was resisted by Stiles &
Burton on the ground that their ac
tion being against the company, in
stead of the Receiver, its cflcct would
not be to disturb his possession.—
Hearing was had yesterday and the
application of the Receiver denied.
Yesterday we had an account of the
warm reception met by tramps at
Ackley, and Mason City from which
plaoe they were expelled by force.
The tramps true to their nature, after
leaving Ackely started North, and
when they reached a little town in
Minnesota by the name of Lisle, on
the Minnesota and St. Paul Railroad,
they took possession of a train which
they proposed to run as they had the
Central. The authorities of the road
merely side-tracked the train and no
tified the county authorities that it
was impossible to run the road ac
cording to schedule time.
The Sheriff or somebody else, or
dered out a company of Norwegian
militia some 40 strong. The militia
marched to the scene of action and
fqjind the enemy. The parties were
nearly equally divided in numbers
but the military were armed, while
tramps were not, but to make things
equal after a general survey of the
scene the Captain ordered his men to
•tack arms, over which he placed a
guard, ordered the Sheriff to got out
of the way, and then waded in with
such arms as nature gave.them, and
gave the marauders such a trowncing
as they never had before. There are
no tramps in that country now.
A partial eclipse of the s'.m took
place to-day. It was invisable in this
latitude. Almost the only people
who can get a fair view of it will be
the inhabitants of Alaska, the middle
of the eclipse occurring near sunset at
Sitka. The shadow starts on the
earth high .up on the eastern coast of
Greenland, and, crossing that penin
sula, goes westward thence, some
what in the track of what polar navi
gators have designated as the "'North
west Passage." After Alaska is
reached, the sweep is more southerly,
and the shadow ends in the Pacific
Ocean. Of course, tho dark sido of
the moon being presented toward the
earth during a solar eclipse, the moon
is then practically invisible her ap
parent position to a spectator in this
latitude to-day would be just above
the sun's edge. If the spectator were
then transported sufficiently far north
he would find the dark moon lapping
the upper part of the sun about one
third. An interesting feature about
this eclipse is its relation to two
other eclipses that shortly follow.
When the moon gets subsequently
halfway round in her orbit, she roust
come squarely in to the earth's shad
ow, and consequently there will be a
total eclipse of the moon (visible here)
August 23. When she completes
her revolutions round the earth,
•he will again eclipse the
sun, but her apparent position
to a spectator in this latitude
would then be just below the sun
though, as before, the dark side of the
moon being turned to us, she would be
invisible. But the moon being then be
low instead of above the sun, the par
tial solar eclipse of September will
be visible only off the lower part
of the South American coast, and in
South Polar regions. Three eclipses
within one month's time arc certain
ly quite as much as anybody lias a
right to expect there will be none

A Fire at Horn*.
This morning, jnst at daylight, the
alarm of fire was raised, and it hus
tled a good many people out of bed
in a hurry. The morning was unu
sually foggy and nothing could be
seen over a block atray, and the fire
bell having ceased to ring, a majority
of people retired to their homes, sat
isfied that it was a false alarm. Not
so, however, for the CbrRiER of
fice had a remarkably close escape
froni destruction. In the business
office on the second floor, in tlio room
ad joining Porter Bros. & Hackworth,
there was a box filled with sawdust
used as a spittoon. It is supposed that
late yesterday afternoon some visitor
in the office had carelessly thrown a
lighted cigar stump into this box,
and it ignited the sawdust and start
ed the fire, after slumbering all night,
early this morning. Our reason for
saying that some visitor must have
thrown the cigar stump in the box is.
that no one employed in the office
had smoked a cigar yesterday before
closing the office.. Mrs. Dr. Crider
first saw the fire and D. I). Calhoun
gave the alarm, and he and Lieut.
Wittsman were first on the scene of
danger. They hastily procured
ladder, broke in the front window,
and by the use of water carried in
buckets by those assembled, speedily
subdued the flames. The damage
done was a desk nearly burned up,
tho window casings badly charred,
a lot of bill-heads, letter-heads, etc.
consumed. A number of ledgers.
day-books, etc., in the desk, escaped
with little damage. The total dam
age is probably not over $50, but had
tho fire broken out an hour or two
earlier the result would have been
disastrous iu tho extreme, as it would
have insured the destruction of our
whole office, tho post-office, and per
haps the entire block from Court to
Market street, which is the pride of
our city.
The firo company promptly turned
out with their engine, but good for
tune rendered their services unneces
sary. It will teach us a lesson and
one that should be heeded by every
body, to not use sawdnstfor spittoons.
We tender our sincere thanks to
our friends who so nobly rushed to
the rescue and saved our building
and office from destruction.
Railroad Bakings
As gathered up by the Constitution:
At Ottumwa the other day, a poor
but deserving devil approached agent
Boude, of the K. & D. M. R. R. and
asked him to pass him up the road
The agent being satisfied that the
man was all right, agreed to speak to
the conductor. Meantime Supt. Hain
put in an appearance, and the man's
story was related to him by Boude.
Hain told the agent to put the man
aboard, and then went and posted the
conductor. Entering the car the Col
sat down beside the man and engaged
him in conversation. He expressed
himself as being afraid the conductor
would go back on him and put him
off. "No he won't," said the Colonel
"I know the ins and outs of railroad
ing. When he approaches you, just
twirl your hat around on your fin
ger and he'll pass you by." In due
time tho conductor approached, As
he came to the scat where the man
was, the Col. nudged him and said
Now." Now it was, and the way
that hat spun around on that man's
fingers discounted the plate-spinning
in a circus, and as the conductor
passed right on and never said turkey
about tickct or pass, the man with the
hat was chained to the seat in won
der, and is probably trying to get it
through his wool to this day.
The probability is, as we are in
formed bj» a well posted railroad
man, that the railroad companies,
stirred up by the strike, will give the
grand bounce to fast freight lines and
sleeping car companies, and apply the
dividends these companies declare
annually, while the roads they run
over cannot pay interest on their
bonds, to themselves, and see if they
can't declare a dividend once in
century at least.

Rev. W. T. Bray, of Clinton, last
Sabbath, preached a sermon in which
he was severe on base ball. He said:
"In base ball, as conducted by the
managers of the Clinton nine, with

and the attendant betting, the speak
er saw a danger against which he was
compelled to utter a warning. Base
ball as a recrcation by our own boys
at proper times and places he did not
oppose but to withdraw nine able
bodied young men from all industri
al pursuits and deliver them over to
the trivial occupation of tossing a
ball was to unman them and afford a
bad example to all other youthful
lovers of the game. If Clinton should
succeed in having the champion nine
of the State it would be to her shame
and disgrace. Her honor could only
be preserved by training her young
men to lives of useful and dignified
labor. Betting and gambling are as
inseparably connected with profcS'

Th» Competine shooting.
MR. Em
it1 see a statement
in the Conner of July 25th, in regard
to my shooting a man in an attempt
to biirn some hay. It is right that
the public should be properly inform
ed on the subject. On the night of the
lOth of May 1 had two ricks set on
lire. On following the footprints
my people traced them to near Geo.
Spurlocks, which led us to believe he
was the guilty one, h& having made
threats for no other cause than that
lie had gotten some money from mc
through false pretense, and I had
made an attempt to collect the same.
On the night of the 2d July anoth
er fire was sot which burned a piece
of a rick. I had watches out, but the
hay being near a mile from my house
no clue was had to the last burning.
Then ou the night of the 10th of
July one or perhaps more of the
watchers were back in the meadow
near where the last burn^was made,
near where a rick of last year's hay
was standing. Between 12 and 1
o'clock, the watch having taken up
for the night, George Spurlock rode
up to the rick, and lit a match the
hay being damp it failed to take lire,
lie then lit two others which also
failed. The watch then said, "You
consider yourself under arrest."—
Spurlock replied, "You God
old son of a I will nover be
arrested," and fired a pistol shot at
the watch. Then the shooting com
menced. As I understand it several
shots were fired from both sides. I,
instead of doing the shooting, as your
statement says, was at home asleep.
We went out next morning, found
some blood, and the trail through the
rass showed that there had been
three horscB in the meadow, one going
to where tho shooting took place and
the other two to two other ricks near
by. Rumor says that George's broth
er was one of the two. In justice to
him I will say that my information
that ho was not there. A hat was
found in the meadow which we have
owner for, thought to belong to
the accused, the rumor having been
that the accused was badly wounded,
perhaps dangerously, and never bo
ng able to realize human suffering
cry well, we thought it best to delay
the arrest a short time. Dr. Lathrop,
of Ottumwa, being the surgeon and
having the art of healing by first in
tention, the patient was sufficiently
able to start on a small journey two
days after the battle, and ho has, up

Preparations for sowing wheat
should be made at once. There was
formerly more difference of opiuion
as to the time of sowing wheat than
tliero is now. The majority of far
mers favor early soWlng and if the
seed is well in the ground latb iu Au
gust, the chanccs are more favorable
than if it is sown later. Where wheat
follows oats, the oat stubble should
be plowed immediately After the crdp
is taken from the field. If the weath
er is dry, the greater will be the ne
cessity for repeated plowing and roll
ing, to prevent the soil from baking.
A mellow soil, well rolled and
packed, is what the seed requires to
germinate in. If the soil is cloddy
the young roots are exposed to the
action of tho air in the open spaces,
and dried and killed. This is the se
cret of many failures of what were
at first promising seedings. Repeat
ed liarrowings and rollings are need
ed to produce the proper conditions
of the soil. No mattor if the surface
is somewhat rough, if the soil beneath
is mellow and fine. Indeed we would
a little rather have the top a little

drill is hired, and less if it is pur
chased. Five pecks of seed per acre,
or six at most, is enough, so that at
least half a bushel of seed per acre is
saved, and here is the cost returned
at once. But the difference in the
harvest is, many times its cost, in fa
vor of the drill, Every winter we
hear and read on every hand, "drill
sown wheat looks well, but broadcast
wheat is injured badly." There is
much in placing the seed cxactlv right
in the ground. If the plant has no
depth of root, it is weak and cannot
stand the rigors of winter or spring,
and it will not tiller out as will that
more deeply sown.
hardly need
be said that if the seed is not good,
no good crop can be expected. The
necessity for selecting seed with care
has been a maxim of agriculture for
thousands of years. The oldest books
tell of it. And yet the success of
those who make a business of doing
this, is now made a "nine days' won
der." Unfortunately it is forgotten
again in nine days, and wc go on
sowing the seed just as it come from
the sheaf. It is a good plan to sow,
al least a small strip in the field, with
the best seed to be procured, upon
ground prepared in the best way, and
cut this by itself at harvest, and
thresh it at once for seed. But if this
pays why not grow tho whole crop
in the same way A good farmer
should have no grain that he cannot
use for seed none that is poor, light,
shrunken, or mixed with cockle and
potatoes 6hould
be harvested as soon as ripe. Else, if
wet weather occurs, the tubers may
sprout and be injured. Rue's Potato
Digger is an effective implement, de
signed expressly for this work, and
where the crop is a large one, it can
hardly be dispensed with, if the crop
is to be gathered and put away as
it should be. There is no other crop
that follows potatoes as well as fall
wheat, and no ground so easily pre
pared for it as potato ground. Pota
toes may be pitted and lightly cover
ed with the vines, and some boards
over these, and remain until frost.
TiiHEsuiNti.—When grain is thresh
ed, it is safe from the majority of its
many enemies. It is also ready to
sell at a moment's noticc, when the
price suits or money is wanted. Per
haps no further reasons than these
need be given, why it is well to
thresh as early as possible. One of
the most convenient things about
farm is a threshing machine and
horse-power, or for larger farms one
of the many good and cheap steam
engines, which will be found describ
ed in tlio advertising columns. It is
a great convenience to bo able to
thresh just when one wants to, and
without the fuss and bother of a hired

IOWA COLLEWE, (Grinnell, Iowa),
Fall term begins Sept 5,1977. w4.
"We prefer, for reasons given last
month, to cut away the old canes as
soon as the fruit is off. Select the
new shoots that are to fruit next year,
and keep them tied, destroying all
the others. When these reach four
feet high in raspberries, and six feet
in blackberries, stop them by cutting
or pinching off tho tip some prefer
them lower than this by a foot. This
stopping will cause branching and
the branches should not be allowed
to grow over fifteen or eighteen inch
es long.
131ack-cap and purple-cane raspber
ries should have the old branches cut
and if so many new ones start as to
make the bushes crowded, remove a
part. Stop the remainder at three or
four feet.
STRAWBERRIES.—Those .who have
runners rooted in small pots may set
this month, and get a good crop next
yiear. Kunners from the bed had
better be left until next month, unless
one can give special care. Plants set
now should have all the outer leaves
removed, to prevent evaporation,
leaving only tho bud of undeveloped
leaves in the center: spread the roots
well water to settle the earth around
the roots, drawing line soil around
the plant, and mulch with stable lit
ter. If a very dry time follows, wa
tering may be needed. While this
would not pay in field culture, it may
be practiced in the family garden,
and a good crop, if not a full one, be
had next spring.
Highway Pasturing-
In every state there is a selfish class
of men who care little how much an
noyance and loss they may cause their
neighbors, provided thereby they can
secure some petty advantage or gain
for themselves. It is these, among
farmers, who knowingly allow their
cattle to run at large on the highways,
in order to gain in this way gratuit
ous pasturge. We fully agree with
the Germantown Telegraph that this
custom cannot be too severely con
demded. Even the owner of the cat
tle who will thus trespass upon the
rights of the public, and frequently
upon the crops of his neighbor, must
run the risk of straying and the ex
pense of hunting them up, as well as
the cost of the damage they may do
in breaking through fences to get at
the growing crops. Now the man—
we can hardly say farmer—who thus
appropriates the highway for a pas
ture-field, to which he has not a shad
ow of a ight, should be ashamed to
look an honest neighbor in the lace—
one who lias been compelled to
rtrengthen his fences against the in
roads of these hungry wandering
cattle. Xotagateor "bars" iin be
left open for a moment for fear of the
trespassers—thus, in the busy times
of harvest, taking up valuable time in
guarding against the everlasting va
grant animals.
There should bo a general law
against road cattle, and a sharp line
imposed upon every man or woman
who thus takes what docs not belong
to cither. The grass in the highway
belongs, from tho line fence to the
middle of the road, to }he owners of
the property on either side, as much
so as if it were on the inner side of
the fence. The public has only the
right of way, nothing more, much
less is it the pasture ground of va
grant cattle whose owners thus de
pend upon the property of others,—

A New and Wonderful Fruit
From the Sun Francisco Miiil.
Diospyros Kali, kown as the date
lum or Japanese persimmon, has
grown in California, and its suc
cessful culture fully established. The
tree is highly ornamental, is a pro
lific bearer, is as hardy as the pear,
and ripens as early. The fruit can
be shipped across the continent.
When dried it is equal to figs, and
can be kept a long time, it is of
bright, yellow, orange or vermillion
color, and is unsurpassed for the ta
ble, being thought by some to bo
equal to the peach or strawberry
Its average weight is from one-half
pound to over a pound The wood
is valuable for manufacturing, being
a species of the ebony order, Kbeni'
ceac. It will bear in from one to
three years. Cultivate the same
apples and in same variety of soil.
Summer Separation.
From th* Dantiury New*.
June is the month of loVc, joy, and
August, is tlmt of its agony. In .Tune
two hearts knit together and become
one. Ill August two bodies separate.
She goes away to see her mother's
aunt in the country, and lie stays nt
home, working the trfadmill of duty.
This comes hard on all men, but its
weight is the heaviest, on the grocery
clerk. His heart is not in his work.
How can it be? Where the treasure
is. there will the heart be also, and
the treasure is far away. Ho cannot
smile oil the cuslOtner. He cannot
counterfeit successfully that expres
sion of all absorbing interest which
makes a clerkship a thing1 of beauty.
Certainly his is a most critical task,
'i'hc variety and diversity of tho arti
cles iu which lie deals require that he
should keep his wits about him. In
this particular lie is in as much dan
ger as the drug clerk, while the op
portunities for slipping arc a hundred
fold. A Danbury man who went to
a drug store to "have a prescription
prepared, seeing nobody but a clerk
present said:
"Young man, arc you keeping com
pany with a girl
"Yes, sir," answered tho clerk with
a blush."
"Do you think the world of her
"I do," said tho clerk firmly, al
though blushing considerably.
"Is she in town pursued*the cus
tomer anxiously.
"No, sir she is away on a visit."
"That will do," said the man de
cisively. "You can't fool around any
prescription for me." and he went
But it is the grocery clerk who lias to
struggle from early morn till night
with a flood of anuoyanccs. When
he dips into tho sugar barrel he thinks
of her lips and sighs. In cutting the
chcesc lie is reminded of the strength
of his devotion to her, and when he
looks into the butter firkin his
thoughts stray to licr hair. When he
would go away by himself and give
expression to his emotions he is
obliged to help lift a barrel of corned
beef, or roll a cask of salt or open a
cask ot lard. It is only when he is
dealing out mackerel that lie feels as
if he had a companion in his sorrow
a sympathizer in grief. There is that
softened, subdued light in the eye of
a salt mackerel which touches a re
sponsive chord in tho heart of suffer
ing and awakens it to plaintive melo
dy. How tenderly he lifts it from
the kit, how lovingly he lingers in
wrapping it up. Poor fellow! He
may put up washing starch for bak
ing powder, draw molasses in the
kerosene can, and even attempt to
palm off various things for tea. He
may do this. It is more than likely
that he will. But the expression of
mackerel's eye will not change. The
soft, subdued light of sympathy still
Boys Wanted-
Men are wanted—so they are but
boys are wanted—honest, manly, no
ble boys. Such boys will make the
desired men. Some have declared
and truly, that these boys should pos
sess ten points, which are thus given
1.—Honest. 2.—Intelligent. 3.'
Active. 4.—Industrious. 5.—Obedi
ent. 6.—Steady. 7.—Obliging. 8.
Polite. !).—Neat. 10.—Truthful.
One thousand first-rate places are
open for one thousand boys who come
up to the standard. Each boy can
suit his taste as to the kind of busi
ness he would prefer. The places are
ready in every kind of occupation.
Many of them arc already filled by
boys who lack some most important
points, but they will soon bo vacant.
Some situations will soon bo vacant,
because the boys will soon be poison
ed by reading bad books, such as
they would not dare to show their
fathers, and would be ashamed to
have their mothers see. The impure
thoughts suggested by these books
will lead to vicious acts, the boys
will be ruined, and their places must
be filled.
Who will be ready for one of these
vacancies? Distinguished lawyers,
useful ministers, skillful physicians,
successful merchants, must all soon
leave their place for some one else to
fill. One by one they arc removed
by death. "Mind your ten points,
boys. They will prepare you to step
into vacancies in the front rank.
Every man who is worthy to employ
a boy is looking for you if yon have
tho points. Do not fear that you will
be overlooked. A young person
having these qualities will shitie as
plainly as a star at night.
