i WEEKLY COURIER WIDSISIUA' MORNI\«,,lrn Id, 1878. LOCAL DEPARTJIKXT. From WrdnMilty 'S P*L!J. Richard Butcher, of Eddyvillc, is in the city, the tirst time for ten month. Mr. B. is looking much better than might be expected. Mr. Wiley returned from the East thla morning, looking as gay as a meadow lark in August, lie informs us that he has been awarded the con tract for building water works at Tiffin, the county seat of Seneca coun ty, Ohio. The works there will be similar, somewhat, to those in this city, and water power will supply the water works. The Tiffin folks have given their contract to a gentleman Who will crowd things through and fill the contract to the letter. Mr. Wilev will superintend the new works in Ohio, while his interests in this city will be cared for by Mr. Parks. Mr. Peck, Blakesburg mail carrier, brought to this office, to-day, a sam ple of oats. They were grown upon the farm of Richard West, of Adams township, and the stalks measure six feet two inches, cut off just above the roots. They are the common white oats variety, and there is a field of 'JO acres standing just as thick as oats can grow out of the ground. The sample was not selected at all and represents just a fair average growth. 46 i One of the proudest men in tho city Is that old locomotive engineer Mark Strausler,and the occasion of his pride is the return to him, this morning, of his old engine, No. Which is just out of tho shop as bright and pretty as the most artistic work could make it. The old Artillery man, this morning, after a careful ex amination of every bolt, nut and bar about the concern, mounted the foot board, the happiest man, perhaps, in the employ of the road, and if he don't take her to Creston on time it will not be his fault nor the fault of the engine either. Mark is an accom plished engineer, the oldest, wo be lieve, on the road, and is a living cu riosity in that he went through the Tyrone wreck a few years ago, with out permanent injury, as his engine was literally torn to pieces. We hope that he and No. 209 will keep inscp •table and out of the ditch for many years to come. from Frldsy'e Dally. Yesterday was one of the most pMceble days ever known in the city on such an occasion. R. N. Harlan, after several months absence in St. Louis and other south ern cities, returned last night. James Beatty a lad 15 years old and mail carrier on the lino between Knoxville and Otley, was drowned Saturday while trying to ford a creek. Richard Williams and family re turned from Labette, Kansas, yester day. Wr. W., we are sorry to say is in very bad health, suffering with rheumatism so as to be hardly able to get around. Samuel Buchanan, farmer across the river, laid upon our table to-day, specimen of his rye, this year. It ia immense. How jolly it makes us all to see the farmers smiling out of the right corner of their mouths this year. John Gray, yesterday evening' while iiiving out to the picnic received a Mvere fall which fortunately resulted Is nothing Berious. He in company With his brother L. E. was driving along at a pretty good speed when a wheel came off' the buggy and threw the entire party out. John tries to walk lame but will soon be all right •gain. MOST BEATJTIFCT. WHKAT.—A. Stu ber, of Columbia township, showed us to-day a sample of tho "Clausson white" wheat, raised by him. He obtained it two years ago from the Agricultural Bureau at Washington. We are sure we never saw handsom er wheat. The head is very large and the berry very large and white.— Mr. Stuber has raised about four bushels of this wheat and intends to sow it all this year. Best Gent's Fine Boots at Philips'. P. F. Dana, of Center Township, brought in a sample of the Crossen wheat the same as that of Mr. Stuber. Mr. Dana has raised about a bushel of it this year. He obtained his seed from his brother in Ohio, where it turned out 54 bushels to the acre by Weight in afield of 15 acres. Mr. Dana also showed us a sample of his «arly Fults wheat. It is a winter Wheat and he sowed the last week in October, 77, three bushels of it, and lias raised this year, from his sowing, bushels, which was fully ripe the flrstofJuly. It has been cut four days •tid is now so hard and dry that it i« lit to grind. It pays to buy the beat shoes you can always get them at Phillips'.

Timothy Brown, Esq., of Marshall town, one of the best lawyers in Iowa, tells the Eldora Ledyer that there are grave doubts as to the le gality of official notices published in papers not recognized by the county authorities as "official" publications. In fact, Mr. Brown recently took a case of this kind into the District Court, and succeeded in ripping up a Sheriff's sale that had been made on a Mtice published in a paper that had ne official existence in the county Where it was for a short time pub Ushed.

We have a splendid sample of winter wheat raised by Win. Dim mitt, of Dahloncga township. Uncle Billy is never out of wheat of his own raising: if ho misses a year or even two, he still has enough of old wheat laid away for bread. The State Leader, which billed and cooed with the Greenbackers with view ol uniting on a Congressional candidate, and for a time advocated the claims of Gillett, the Greenback candidate, has finally gone back on him, since it has been shown that he has 6uch a vulnerable record.

The Fourth of July in Ottumwa is always celebrated in a spirit worthy the great national holiday, and wor thy the enterprising people of the boss town of the State, and this the third Fourth of the second century of American Independence, of course, Was no exception to the general rule. The morning waB ushered iu by a salvo of artillery, and die business houses and many residences were decorated with national dags, both large and small. The clouds of the early morning soon cleared away and left the skies clear with a cool brac ing air which had a tendency to in duce people to leave dull care aside and to partake of the festivities usu al on such occasions. It is a daty in cumbent upon every patriotic citizen to celebrate the Fourth of July some way and no matter how much fizz and fuss, noise and clatter is necessa ry all patriotic towns take a hand. The people in the country lay aside their business and expect a good time in town, town people expect it, in fact everybody prepare themselves to give the bird a high old boost on the Fourth of 'July. Yesterday, we had a celebration in detail much like ordinary celebra tions, except in this instance, we had, really, two celebrations, one under the auspices of the Reform Club and the other under the direction of thi Sheridan Guards and Emmet Asso ciation. The procession was formed at 10 o'clock on Court street under the command of Gen. J. M. lied rick,assis ted, by Dr. Stewart and C. B. Rounds, was very creditable in arrange ment and the number engaging in it. The Ottumwa Cornet Band, hand somely uniformed, under the leader ship ot Carl Schwabkev, led the pro cession and perhaps never look ed better than they did yester day, and certainly never earned more praise by discoursing the most ex quisite music. They were followed by the mem bers of the Malta Commandery in the beautiful and tasty uniform of that order, and the Sir Knights in their gay equipage were fbe feature of the procession and the observed of all observers. The next feature of tho procession were the Sheridan Guards and the Ottumwa Guards, with their martial bands, tlags tlving and the bright muskets glittering in the sunshine, never presented a better appearance. They were followed by a long line of beautiful little girls, handsomely dressed, who with their bright and happy faces were perfectly lovely in their innocence and enthusiasm. The boys, each was a captain by himself and commanded all the rest, each one happy with bis wooden mus ket and paper cap as they inarched up the hill aud then marched down again. Dr. Lathrop always did have a high appreciation of nature and his Kingofthe Cannibal islands would have taken high rank on his native heath could the King have been trans ported in his carriage of state with all its surroundings. The Doctor's con ception was happy, and if history is correct quite appropriate. Then came wagons representing each of the breweries of the city, decorate 1 with evergreens, beer kegs bottles, covered and carpeted with the tlags of all nations. The wagons looked very pleasant and patriotic, and added much to the appearance of the procession. There was also George Nelson's barber shop on wheels completely rigged and running in full blast, the same as at home, tollowcd by carria ges, wagons and citizens on foot who lined the sidewalks on both sides of the street for half a mile or more. On arrival at Birch street the Sher idan Guards and Emmett Association left the procession for Blake's Grove where a stand had been erected and where their celebration was held. They had a large platform tor danc ing, swings, croquet grounds and al most every thing else necessary to pass the time agreeably aud as be comes people on the Fourth of July Capt. Jaques read the declaration and E. A. Robinson delivered an ora tion which is spoken of as a very cred itable effort, inde/3, and which pleas ed the audience very much. The military had a sham battle, competitive drill, refreshments and plenty oH'un. At Ward's Grove after the usual formal exercises were over R. J. Ser vice read the declaration and the Hon. J. W. Dixon delivered an ora tion of about an hour's length which it is said was a very fine speech. Mr. I). is a very entertaining speaker and enlisted the closest attention from the audience. After the dinner hour was over the hours between that and evening was passed with a general good time. Several short speeches being inter tfat time to 'adjourn spersed. came sooner than was wished for by many. Wo may here state that sixty* nine persons signed the pledge dur ing the exercises on the grounds. It was a very pleasant gathering, and so far as wo have learned every thing passed off with the utmost good feeling, and not an accident occuried during the day of any sort worth speaking of. The Ottumwa Guards at the Opera House and the Sheridan Guards at the City Hall concluded the festivities with a grand ball at each place, and the dancing was kept up until almost daylight this morning. Therefore looking at the matter from every standpoint the Fourth of July in Ottumwa was celebrated with success. For the oruiBR. An Iowa Scientific School. It is probable that comparatively few of the many people in and out of Iowa, who have read in the newspa pers of this state, the reports ol the Iowa Weather Service, have any ade quate idea how extensive and import ant an institution it is, or what an outlay of money and labor is involv ed in its operation. This service owes its existence, and. in a great measure, its success, so far, to Dr. (iustavus Hinrichs, the well known Professor ot Physical Science* at the State University. Its object is to '"secure as complete a history of the weather of Iowa as possible, iu order to furnish material for an ex haustive study of the climate of our state." The service is at present com posed of nearly one hundred volun teer observers, there being one in al most every county in the state. As yot, owing to the meagernoss of the means at tho disposal of Prof. Hin richs, few of the observers are sup- plied with full sets of instruments, such as barometers, thermometers, psychrometcrs, anemometers and wind-vanes. All, however, have rain guages, and all are required to ob serve and record, three times a day (at 8 a in., 12 in. and 8 m.), the amount of cloudiness, the direction aud force of the wind and all other phenomena connected with tho weath er at their stations. It is a common belief that nothing can be done in tho science of the weather, without a great number ef instruments and to such as hold this opinion, it may seem that our Iowa service, as yet obliged to depend largely on observations without full sets of instruments, cannot make much headway. But this is a great mistake. The most striking and im portant phenomena of the atmos phere as, for example: rain, clouds, wind, and thunder and lightning, can be observed without any instrument whatever and if an observer have only a wind-vane aud a Jrain-guage, be can, if diligent and regular, keep very complete and valuable recordsof tho weather in his neighltorhood.— The great desideratum, in a state or country where no attention has been paid to such matters," is to have some ono to organize and direct a corps of observers and work up their records. This desideratum was supplied for Iowa, when, some three or four years ago, Prof, llinrichs, who had long been taking observations at Iowa City, determined to extend the work aud to organize a volunteer weather service for the entire state. In Au gust, 1875, circulars were issued, in viting friends of scientific work, to join the new organization. Many re sponded, and, iu tho following Octo ber, the Prof, had the satisfaction ot seeing his weather service iu full op eration. He furnished his observers with blauks for their records and him self assumed the labor of reducing, tabulating, recording and interpret ing their reports when sent in to him No one who has not had experience iu such work, can conceive how vast this undertaking was. Yet for many mouths l'rof. llinrichs sustained the service entirely from his own private means, performing a great amount of mere drudgery aud often receiving ignorant criticism and malignant op position in-tead of tho hearty sup port and encouragement to which his public spirited efforts entitled him.— But bis work was of too high a scien tific character to remain unnoticed and unappreciated. The evident su periority of his blanks as a means of keeping a complete, correct and com pact record his convincing proof of the intimate relation between forest growth and rainfall (before a matter of pure conjecture, so far as this state was concerned): the thorough ness anil prompt publication of his renoris, and the general excellence of his system, soon won the recognition and applause of scientific men both in this country and in Europe. The state also came to his aid, though at so late an hour that the service came very near perishing'for want of fi nancial support. Last winter the Legislature, unwillintr to see ftn en terprise so beneficial and creditable to the state, ff.il for the want of means, appropriated a small amount for the payment of postage on otlicia) matter and other necessary expenses, such as the publication of an annual report The loira Weather Service The service has already accom plished much. Besides showing the relations of rainfall to timber, it has proved that there is a periodicity iu many meteorological phenomena formerly supposed to be wholly ir regular and casual. This periodicity, when completely understood, will form a reliable basis for estimating weather probabilities. Even in pre diction, tho most difficult part of me teorological work of the Iowa Weath er Service has made a record of which its members may well feel proud. While it was still in its infancy, Prof. Hinrichs, availing himself of its rec ords together with his own and those of Prof, l'arvin, of Iowa City, calcu lated the probable character of the winter of 1875-i, predicting, with wonderful accuracy, every important feature of the weather, in its proper succession. In fact, meteorology has never undertaken long-range predic tione with more marked and encour aging success. But having as yet very few data on which to base his calculations, and having, up to that time, failed to obtain State recogni tion and support, the Professor deter mined to give, for the time, less of his time and energies to ascertaining tho probabilities, and more to collecting data of all kinds. This work, though perhaps of less immediate interest, must be done before the climate of Iowa can be thoroughly understood and the people of the State may well rejoice that it is being done, aud done so" well. Of course, much more might be done by the State to advance so useful an organization. Prof. Hin richs, who was at the heavy expense of organizing the service and main taining it during its first years, should no longer be allowed to pay any part of its necessary expenses. He should have a paid assistant whose duty it should be to carry a part of the heavy load of drudgery insepara ble from the reduction and graphical representation of so many figures. But these conveniences, together with the means and appliances necessary to the full development of the service, will doubtless come in time, at least as soon as the people of the State find out how earnestly and diligently the)' have been and are still being served by the volunteer observers aud their eminent chief. J. J. II. Fumis, Iowa, July 1st, 1878. Headquarters fv Men's and Boy's Plow Shoes at Phillki'. 4-lOwtf itttu is thus already an accomplished fact: a well established institution for the prose cution of that hard work which lies at the foundation of all true science. It is, in realty, a Scientific Schoat, the volunteer observers and their assis tants being the students and their in structor that indefatigable scientific worker, Prof. Hinrichs, who is at all imes in communication with his en tire volunteer corps. The stimulus which inust, by this means be im parted to the cause of scientific edu cation, in the state, is incalculable To have from 100 to 200 persons in all parts of the State constantly en gaged in observing and recording facts of scientific interest under the guidance of a man noted for rigid ex actness and severe industry, as well as for unbounded scientific enthusi asm, is alone worth to the common wealth tenfold more thau the entire cost of the service. For, leaving out of consideration the general benefits which will accrue iu a few years from an accurate knowledge ot the climate of the State, the value of a record ot the weather to courts of justice, and the purely scientific interest of the re sults obtained, it is not to be forgotten that the observers are undergoing a long and thorough course of instruc tion iu a science intimately connected with the other Physical Sciences and naturally leading to the study of them and that they of necessity com municate much of their iufortnation and of their scientific spirit to their families, friends and neighbors. Orators and Oratory. John B. Gough has gone to Europe for a two years' stay, aud as he is up in years aud rather infirm in health, perhaps he may never reach this country, nor his smooth-tongued, vel vety eloquence be heard in it again. Hence we may now begin and say what we think proper about the great orator aud some of his cotemporarics. Denton, Beecher, Phillips, Carey, Yoorhees, Kossuth and Schurz nre hard to beat but Gougli ran startle, astound, bewilder, electrify and de lght the whole ocean of mankind. He can gather an audience together into wind-rows impregnate them with his sensative, nervous, almost frightful, fiery and sympathetic feel ings and make an audience of ten thousand boil like an augered and troubled 6ea, and start a wave iu the human tlood that will never cease until it surges heavily on tho remot est shore of man's career or nature. He can portray and paint with such pathos a scone of pain, sin, sorrow and su tiering as to make your hair, like tho fretful porcupine's quills, stand on your heads, and make your hearts crawl up your throats tilllrig you too full for utterance throwing your gates of pity wido open giving you relief only in a flood of scalding tears. He can make men, women and children cry and laugh alternately at will. He makes old, gray-headed men weep like sinners middle-aged manhood and "Young America," cry like young crocodiles, and all the women bawl and roar aloud. He can freeze your feelings with icy horror, or melt them into flowing grief and mournful lamentation. lie makes his whole audience swing to and fro upon the lips of the speaker: this minute cry, next fill the house with uproarious laughter, shaking the tab ernacle to its very foundation. Then he whirls short upon his foe—his en emy. Then woe unto the foe—and woe unto the enemy. Upon the man of sin, the wicked, the cruel and the tyrant he pours forth the main tor rent of his fierce power and burning scorn—his majestic stream of fiery wrath, with malignant vengeance and vindictivo fury. In a word, his sil ver-tongued eloquence, golden mouthed declamation and lofty sub limity are like the fiery corruscations and lightnings of heavens, infinitely beautiful and indescribably charm ing. Hence Gough, with the excep tion of Ingersol. may be pronounced the greatest orator, either living or dead. lie is an orator beyond all dis pute, and in many respects, and with one exception beyond all comparison. Ingersoll, we suppose it would bo safe to say, excels in almost avery thing, all the orators now living, or that have lived, or perhaps will live for ten thousand years to come. The great Dauiel Webster we have seen and hoard often. He, like the philosopher of Malmesbury, Ilobbes, and the far-famed Chancellor, Lord Bacon, had a very large three-story head, being, like each of the others, a very largo man. But Ingersoll, the fourth, is perhaps a larger man than cither of the former three, and has a large four-story head. Hence his im mense and gigantic power. We will describe the orator, his characteris tics and his oratory, when we have heard him speak. Suffice it to say of his writings, he writes tho best letter we ever saw or read, and In many of his characteristics ho exceeds all oth er men as orators. His style, like that of Hobbes, is the very perfection of the English language. Then lie shows more reason, knowledge, wisdom, wit, mirthfulness, learning, shrewd ness, sublimity aud biting sarcasm he shows more genius, originality and human nature draws the strongest comparisons and presents the great est antitheses on record the shortest and clearest axiomatic sentences of any of the public speakers. His words are sharper than a two-edged sword shavo keener than a razor they strike like a thunderbolt from the sky, killing with a blow, riving the victim asunder and marking it for the cemetery. They are as steady as time, withering as famine, inexor able as death and unrelenting as the grave. None can know, what ho is until they read his orations or hear him speak. There are sentences and para graphs in his oration "On the Gods," "On Paine," "On Heretics anil Here sies,''for truth, power and sublimity never excelled—never equaled by any other orations in the English lan guage. And there is, in his speech to the "Boys in Blue," at Indianapolis, pathos, eloquence, sweetness, feeling, beauty and kindness, never before uttered, and an elegance of expression superhuman, exquisitely pleasing, gloriously immortal and almost infin ite aud eternal. Two extracts from the "Oration on Paine" w ill give an idea of the mighty Archimedes of modern unbelief and materialism. In telling what science has done he says n every hand the people advance. The Yicar of God has been pushed from the throue of the Ca-sars and upon the roofs of the Eternal City falls once more the shadow of the Eagle. All has been accomplished by the heroic few. The men of science have explored heaven and earth, and with infinite patience have furnished the facts. The brave thinkers have used them. The gloomy caverns of superstition have been transformed into temples of thought, and the demons of the past are the angels of to-day. Science took a handful of sand, constructed a tele scope, and with it explored the starry depths of heaven. Science wrested from the gods their thunderbolts: and now the electric spark, freighted with thought and love, flashes under all the waves of the sea. Science took a tear from the cheek of unpaid labor, converted it into steam, creat ed a giant that turns with tireless arm the countless wheels of toil." In answer to the church that says that the men of unbelief and science have accomplished nothing that we are simply destroyers that we tear down without building again, he says: Is it nothiug to free the mind? Is it nothing to civilize mankind? Is it nothing to till the world with light, with discovery, with science? Is it nothing to dignify man and exalt the intellect? Is it nothing to grope your way into the dreary prisons, the damp and dropping dungeons, the dark and silent cells, where Ihe souls of men are chained to the floors of stone, to greet them like a ray of light, like the song ot a bird, tho murmur of a stream, to see the dull eyes open and grow slowly bright, to feel yourself grasped by the shrunken and unused hands, and hear yourself thanked by a strange and hollow voice Is it nothing to conduct these souls gradually into the blessed light of day—to let them see again the happy fields, the sweet green earth, and hear the everlasting music of the waves? is it nothing to make men wipe the dust from their swollen knees, the tears from their blanched aud fur rowed rheeks Is it a small thing to quench the flames of hell with the holy tears of pity—to unbind the martyr from the stake—break all the chains—put out the fires of civil war—Btay the sword of the fanatic, and tear the bloody hands of the church from the white throat of science Is it a small thing to make men truly freo—to destroy the dogmas of ignorance, prejudice and power—the poisoned fables of superstition, and drive from the beautiful face of the earth tho fiend of fear J. S. WALK EH. Boss CHKESE.—Mr.T. SluttB, repre senting the Kirkville cheese factory, was in ihe city last Wednesday, aud 'made sale of a large amount of their justly celebrated cheese. This facto ry is turning out a large |uautity of full cream cheese, equal to the best in the market, which is sold at lower ligures than inferior brands of eastern manufacture. Mr. Chamberlain, of the Kirkville factory, is one of the most practical cheese manufacturers in the State. He is now personally superintending the factory, and aB a consequence the factory is turning out the most even lot of clieesc it ever manufactured. The right way to build up such institutions in our State is for ot»r merchants to patron ize them. As good cheese as can be found in the market is manufactured right here at home. Try the Kirk ville cheese and our word for it you will not regret it. The above is from the weekly Pella Made. What the Blade says is sim ply the truth. The Kirkville cheese cannot be beat. They now sell as largely in Oskaloosaand Pella as they do in Ottuuiwa, and the reputation of the cheese is growing witb great rapidity.

How They Keep Speakers Spout ing Around the Country for Eight Months of the.Yoar, ln\ls County 3i,'I.u!1 ii-an. An address issued by the National State Greenback Committee is before us aud furnishes another instance of cheek. In one place the committee say, referring to the eflort of the Re publicans to succeed by ballot: "Should that fail, they openly pro claim, through their organs in tho press, their intention to put Grant in to tho White House by force, and make him practically dictator. This is the avowed plan of the leaders of the republican party, and wo know by long experience that the demo crats, even if they had the will, have neither the courage nor the sagacity to prevent its execution." As no republican paper in the I nited States has ever assorted any thing of the kind plain spokon peo ple will say that it is a lie. The com pliment paid the democratic party is very neat. Again after denouncing the republican party for attempting to raise a fund to pay campaign ex penses the committee coolly call at tention of all greenback clubs to the following resolution unonimously adopted by the g. b. State conven tion. "llesolvcd, That all members of Greenback clubs be requested to con tribute at least ten cents per month for campaign expenses, five cents of which should be. retained by the county committee, and five cents should be remitted to the chairman of tho State Central Committee for gen era) expenses and that each member of the State Central committee be re quested to bring this matter of ex pensess to the special attention of the chairman of the county committees in their respective districts." That, will raise the largest "corrup ting fund" ever collected by any par ty. Last year the g. b's. had 35,000 votes. That assessment would raise about three thousand Jire hundred dollars a month—aB their campaign lasts the year round the fund for Iowa will amount to over Jj!40,K a year. That is about equal to the grange in its palmy days and ex plains why so many impecunious fel lows can put in their whole time with speeches trying to array one class of people against another. In another place the Committee say In this new party of reform, we must not foster corruption by making heavy assessments on the candidates. These small and regular contribu tions. if promptly paid, will meet all legitimate campaign expenses, and no single individual will be over-bur dened," Wo should think it would meet all legitimate expenses" and leave a handsome surplus over to be divided among tho leaders. We arc afraid the Committee permitted their rapa city to get away with their judgement. Ah, but the greenbackers say we dont all pay up—True but some pay three or four times that amount and whether paid or not it shows a deci ded willingness to "grab" on the part of your Committee.
