Tbe train was Just pulling out of Weston for St. Joseph, wheu one of tbe passengers in tbe smoker put his head so lar out of the window that a man near bim lelt it bis duty to utter a note ot warning. "Yes, it is a little risky," replied Ihe mau aa he pulled in bis bead aud sat down, "but I was looking for a grave in that field. Jteckou it has been ploughed under and forgotten." "How did they happen to bury him there?" 'lt'a a sad atory, gentlemen very sad. It was just ten years ago tin month, aud I was living here then. A ilrauger came in from (be west with three horses to sell, and be acted so queerly that we clapped him iu jail, tie uever denied that he stole 'em, aud one night tbe boys turned out and bung bim lo a tree over there.

Of tbe practice of kissing children when one has a sore ibroat, a Oussel -dorf physician says in a German med ical journal: Speaking mildly. I would call this practice horrible, although lh term "murderous" was on mv loncne Yes, iiideed.dear inadam.VtiiurderousI" You will remember, perhaps, thai fourteen days ago you, with a ureal shawl wrapped around your neck, made a visit to Mrs. S., and as the little Hons came running luto the room, did you not snatch tbe little one in voui arms and, apparently over flowing with tenderness for mm, kiss bim lo yon heart's content. Then yon began to relate what a horribly inflamed throat you had, so that tbe day before you nau to uecitne an invitanott to tbe con cert. Yon had no designs on the HI Ot that child, and yet you killed him just as surely as though, InsteaJ ol your tender kisses, you bad given him strychnine or arsenic. Your tender ness was fatal. Two or three dais later the bov began to complain of sore throat, and when tbe physician came tne one word "diphtheria" made all clear. To day a little Ireshly-decorated mouna iu ibe churchyard Is tbe oulv reminder of your visit. The mother bas, ol course, not ibe slightest sus picion ol you ; she ascribes her bitter loss to t rovidence. The physician did uotbiug to disturb Ibis beliel, for this would have been as ouwise as unkind; but I will say it Ibat to your fjlly alone, mv dear madam, the death ol little Hans is due. It is hard to determine bow great a part of the prevalence of that horrible disease, diphtheria, is to be attributed to such thoughtlessness; it is well established, however, that adults bave diphtheria in so mild a form often, Ibat it Is regarded as only a simple cold, and as a cold is not Infectious, there is uo idea that the bn atb may harm any one. As diphtheria, in Ihe majority of cases, is commuuicated by direct contagion, ns there is no surer way of communicating ine atsease tnau by kissing, aud as kissing bas become so much the custom on all occasions, it is certainly not surprising tbal this dis ease so easily becomes epidemic, although in Ibis there is un wish to sav that ail cases ot diphtheria originate thus. One thing should be remembered : It is sometimes a greater kindness to children to show them less teudernei iu this respuct O0N80LED HEE GRIEF. An I lepuant frteale a Bsky (a Ki. (lace una She Lost.

"a sttaa rues tuut staAKSsk.au pm tawj a STATE SUPERINTENDENT OOLEMAN ON COUNTY SUPERVISION- Efficient county supervision should he established in each county of the state. The success ailuiued in our city schools is due lo efficient supervision. I here Is not a district in the stale mat employs half a dozen teachers that does not require, demand and secure uperviHion liv having a principal or -uperlnleiideiii whose first duty is to rganize, grade aud manage its schools. For titieou vears we bave nlodded along wltb county eommiasioners who have no control whatever over tbe cuoo s of iheir respective counties; the1 xperiiutnt ha Droved a miserable failure. Some time ago a railroad man said to me, "If I have teu men to work KgetliHi on my road It nays me well to employ a competent man to superln- euu ine iii, and 1 do not want hliu o do any work but simply to plan, II reel aud manage the men under bis barge; no man pays me better tor tbe talary he receives than does tbe super intendent in i matter whether teu or dlty hands are employed." II tbe date has any work to do, a committee ir board ia appointed aud a superin tendent Is employed to execute Ibe ame; all thu state'a buildings were thus managed. Tbe late general as sembly appropriated $2&0,000 to Im jrove the state capital, and considered it necessary to appoint a board of seven uen to execute the provisions of the oill; but we expeud more thau $6,000, XjO annually upon the public schools ol tie slate, while there is not a man. or class of men, iu the state or iu the -.ounties, whose business it Is to super ttiteud litis vast expenditure of money. There is not a business in Ibis coun try which employs a score or more ot nen and women that does uot consider it esseutial lo Ihe success of the enter prise to employ a competent foreman r superintendent; yet the state em loys and pays annually more thau 14,000 men aud women to leach her .tubllo schools wltb no one In tbe couuty or stale te whom they are amenable. Our schools are left lo lake :ate of themselves; io some districts ibis has been done successfully uot on Hcoount of ihe Is w but in the absence it law while many more bave depend d noon the law and the law simnlv stranded them. A mau should be engaged In each county in ihe state and required lo devote his lime, bis Is lent and bi energy lu the management of tbe tchooU ol the county in general super vision; be should examine teachers, old township meetings, and Instruct school officers relative to their duties; he should visit the schools ol tbe couu y, consult with tbe tescbers, and assist ihe people in Interpreting the law ; be should be required lo examine into Ibe condition of tbe school lunds and school noneya of the county, and for this pur poso should have access to ihe necessa ry records; he should superintend the holding and conducting ol a county teachers' institute iu tbe summer vaca tioulorlwo, three or four weeks, sud require teachers to attend ; he should r r range a programme add outliue a course of study for grsding Ibe Schools of his comity: aud it should be made bis special business to see that the laws are enforced. For Ibis work he should be allowed a fair salary, and be paid out ot Ihe county n venue as other coun:y officials are paid. Tbe only argument urged against tbe measure is that it creates a new salaried office, and will therefore Increase the expenditures ol the county. Yes, it costs to erect school bouses, pay tbe teachers and defray the contingent expenses incident to maintaining the schools. Gentlemen, it Is the earnest desire cf tbe best, the ablest, aud tbe most pro gressive educators ol tbe state that the present general assembly shall duly provide for county supervision; and your superintendent after twenty-three years ot constant school work seven teen years Iu Ihe school room and six years as your chosen servant Is fu'ly satisfied by what he has actually ob served through all these vears. that county supervision in fuel is Ihe esaoutial requirement necessary to tbe securing of the benefits so much needed and desired by the public. Again, if this omeiai should be made a medium of protection to the couuty and towu- ship school funds, there would be more than enough saved in many counties lo pay all tbe expenses of this oVcer Give us effective county supervision and a new era will be inangurated iu tbe management of the puhlio schools ot Missouri; the schools w ill be increas ed in tbeir usefulness at least one-ball iu Ibe next two years; tbe schools need it, the leschers ask for It, and Ibe people will sanction your action wben tbey compreheud its true import and value.

Crops in this region have failed for yeare, and etoiies ol our poverty that iiae reached tho cast cannot be far wrong. Still our people bave sand and siitl maintain confidence iu the country. . There is a line chance lor Ihe free trade propaganda in the republican majority out here. S D. Robinson, a young ran whose, father bad writteu biro an u ,101 aiding letter because tbe son bad voted the democratic ticket, obtained 101110 godvadvice aud sent in reply a Ktter that has been published in tbe Northwestern Farmer and Breeder. Here It is: "My Dear Father: I am sorry yon (eel so cut up al my voting the demo cratic ticket. Yon say you think I have, beeH badly influenced, aud that I should vote according to my own Judgment, i will try to tell you why I voted as Idid. Tbe most ol Ihe talk out here was about tariff, aud I can't see any good any more iu a high tariff on things poor people want lo buy, so I just voted for ibe low tariff party. I have to work pretty bard for every dollar I get, aud I waut tblugs that I use to be cheap, aud 1 am sure tariff does' I make labor any higher. You know bow It came that I lost my job iu tbe mills at Pittsburg; tbey Jusi flicd me aud pat an Italian lu my place, and at tbe same time bounced Jo Wheeler and put a newly arrived Scotchman lo belping the engineer al f 1.70 less per week than Jo had been getting. You osed to (ell us that high tariff was to protect us against tbe foreign laborers. It, didn't seem to work in Jo's case or mine. I held It down for three months Io Beaver Falls, bat It Is Just about tbe same thing there; those mills are foil oi foreigners. I only msde $31 la twenty six days, and seld tn got iu over Ave days lu a week. 1 paid 14.24 board, so yon can see about bow I came out. rrotection liidn t seem to do me any good there, so I lit ont for the "Wild West." The first placet struck here was a big larm owned by an old iellow named Staples. 1 walked from the station to bis place wiib two Swedes, oue, Just over, could not speak a word ot English. Staples seemed to be a nice sort of a man, asked roe where I was from aud oflered to give me dinner, but he hired both the Swedes, and let me "move on." Tbe next place tbal I tried tor work: was at tbe iClgiu farm. Tbe boss, a Iellow named Todd, told me be bad nothing but Poles on his place. I beard about bim afterward, Ibat ha was a regular crank and wben be wauled a band be wonld drive all over tho country homing a Polo. "Wen, then l went to tbe Park farm, about 7,600 acres; Ibey gave me my dinner, but I couldn't get a job. Tbere were twenty-eight men at tbe table; all but four were Scandinavians. I am told that all the big farmers oat here would rather hire Norwegians or Swedes thau Americans, and some ot the Ui farmers send over and bring gangs o? them. Tbey say that foreign ers work lor lower wages and are easier suited with regard m board and other accommodations. Now, if tLe -taritl is to help the like of me, there should be a duty of $400 a bead on foreign laborers. One Swede where 1 am worklug now seems lo be a preity decent sort of chap. He came over wltb bis uude a year ago last spring. His uucle bas a farm iu Minnesota and loaned tbis youug man $60 and told him to buy clothes with it to bring over with bim. t:e says ha has enough to do him lor five years. He showed me a woolen shirt be said cost bim over tbere $1.26 iu our money. I paid $2 60 tbe other day for ouo I tried to trade lor his. Now. Pap, how in tbnnder am 1 helped by the tariff? I bave to pay more lor that shirt, aud all tbe way from Pittsburg to Dakota I bave to buck against these foreigners that, if not exactly paupers, can do as this yonng Swede, bring in enough clothes to do for Ave years. If they protect one American manufacturer, Ibey ought to protect all of them ; but as soon as these fellows who hire laborers find out thai I was manufac tured in this couulry, tbey tell me to take a walk, aud run in a loreign article. 8 now yon know w by I bave gone back on the old parly, as yon say. If I am oil my base, let me kuow. "Your affectionate son, "S. D. Robinson." EDITING A PAPER. From tba Dawson iGs.) JouraaJ.l Editing a paper Is a pleasant business if you like it.
