Slirrinnti In KctittiuVy. The I Inn. .John Shcrmun dclivrrcd n eprirh in Louis\ille , Ky. , on last Satur day ( 'veiling , opening HIP republican coti- gnvisloniil citmaign. ] The senator was listened to attentively and respectfully by a vcrv large ntuhonco. Tlip npienrnncc | of Mr. Sherman on Kcnttickyyoil to advo- cnlo republican principles is n somewhat noteworthy ovent. 'i'linro are other prominent republicans who might have gone there on a similar errand without UIR fact attracting much nlteulion. Hut in the case of Mr. Sherman the circtnn - Ptnnce derives peculiar interest , from his rocoenteeil portion as one of the mo.M radical exponents of the political nud the economic principle * of his parly. In in viting him to open their campaign , therefore - fore , tiio republican managers of Ken tucky were warranted in expecting two things-that the Ohio senator would deal candidly with the political situation in the southern stales as ho regards it , and thai ho would tirgo uncompromising ad herence to the linaneial .xnd economic policy of the republican parly. It is something to have learned thai the re publicans of Kentucky are not afraid to iisloii to an exposition of those matters from one who occupies the most extreme ground respccling them. It is evi dence of u growing courage which certainly will bo gratifying to those who believu in the beneficial ollucts of the widest discussion nnd the most generous toleration of opinions with respect to public questions. It Is a breach in tlio barricade that has been maintained against the invasion of republican doc trine from the north. In every sense it is an augury of bettor relations politic ally between the two sections , and good citizens everywhere will regard the event with more than ordinary interest. It need not bo said that the republicans of Kentucky made no mistake in select ing Senator Sherman to open their cam paign. Ho understood exactly the re quirements of tlio occasion. His speech was A candid , explicit , straightforward exposition of republican views. Ho talked to the republicans of Kentucky , rosooeting the policy and principles of lliu party , just as lie would have talked to the republicans of Ohio. 'J'lio ' policy that ho deems to bu wise and good for tlio people north of tlio Ohio river lie be lieves to bo equally Round for Ihoso south of it. What this is in general is too well known in this latitude to require specific men tion , but not so well known or under stood at the south , and even in Ken tucky , as to render unnecessary the elaborate - orate elucidation presented by Senator Sherman in his speech at LouUvillo. There are none wo trust , north or south , who will not join in the hope expressed by Senator Sherman at the close of his speech , that his visit to Kentucky will be a message of good will from which may spring such results as good oiti/ens everywhere desire. Features of tlio on * Year- . Although this is an ofTyoar in politics , it is not without interesting and instruc tive features. There are men who are now receiving their first introduction into politics , some from one cause and .some from another , a Jew of whom will per haps in the future occupy an important place in the public affairs of the nation , while others , filled with largo ambitions and self-conlidenee , will strut their brief hour on Ihe political stage and disappear forever from public view. This oil' year is the auspicious opportunity for putting on trial now men , for giving would-be leaders u clianco , as it is also for pushing to the front policies and principles which at other times are but incidental in the conllicts of parties. Tlio labor inovome.nl in Now York city has been freely referred , to as perhaps the most , interesting politiea 1 event ol tlio year. This is duo not alone to the fnot that it has had lliu ellcct already ol throwing the party which has held an almost unbroken control for genera' lions of the all'airs of that municipality into confusion and alarm , but because thoughtful men discern that it may bi the beginning of : i general movement which would have a very de > cided influence upon existing party organizations. The plan of the more ambitious and fnr-rcaeliins among the leaders of this movement reachcfi beyond the boundaries of New York. It is , indeed , alre.ul.y making itself felt elsewhere. What its future shall be will depend mainly upon tin wisdom and prudence of its loaders. An other interesting fact among current political ovcnts is tlio appearance of John V. Andrew , Iho son of the great war governor ornor of Massachusotts.as the leader of ihc democracy of that state. The movement which gavu him the nomination for gov ernor was spontaneous and overwhelm ing. Once started , It .swept along the democratic line like wildliro , and men yielded their preferences nnd aspiration' without objection , and even with glad ness , becoming the most ardent dovolees of the now political star. So far as wi are nwaro Mr. Andrew has no politiea ! record , but ho is said to bo a man of character actor and intelligence fitting him for lead crship. This remains to bo determined lint he has a name that is a lower oi .strength in MaHsachusntts , and it was doubtless this , rather than consideration ) of personal merit , which made him sc overwhelmingly the preference of tin democracy. If ho inherits the groal qualifications which 'rendered iiis ills lingulsliod father one of the forumos mon of his time , the dumocraoy of tin Hay slnto have done wisely ii making him their standard boaror. Tin party in the commonwealth would hi butter for having such a leader , nnd ii the present scarcity ol really great ant worthy mon in the democratic party Ihero is room for him. lor the sake o Iho improvement that is possible in tin character of the democracy , all men wil h'opo that Mr. Andrew will prove to havt .something moro to commend him than the heritage of a grout namo. Thn Knlulits of l < nl > or Convention. The annual convention of the Knight. ' of Labor will bo hold this week at llich r.iond , Ya. Muuh interest h being man ifcstod in the session From .00 to ! , ( > ( } ( dolcyaitos , rcnrofentlng the various anbor dlnato boilie. * In Iho United States am ! Canada , am expected to bo In attendance and several perple\injj questions , whose importance to the future of the order can scarcely bu overestimated , will bo brought up for discussion and decision. Fricndt of the order have every canfiJcm'.o that wise and conservative counsels will pro vtdl. The excellent manngcmeut of tin KnighUi of Labor In iu executive brand ] In times past gives reason for the belief that hol-headoit enthusiast * and dangerous demagogy will be promptly suppressed. In n large organization there must of necessity bo divided coun cils. Mon with little sympathy with their aims creep into every benevolent society and often cast discredit on orders who'o objects arc of Iho most praiseworthy. U is nol to be cvpoetod that every motion and every speech in the Knights conven tion wilt bo above criUci ni. The order must bo judged from the result * , and these We are confident will bo all thai its friends doslro. An attempt will bo made lo secure fiomlhc convention an expression of sympathy for tlio Chicago anarchists. Sympathy for the migi > ided criminals is not wrong , bul expressions-of sympathy for their erituc will without question bn promptly voted down if Ii is advanced as a motion in tlio Richmond convention. Such outrages have already been .strongly condemned by the order , nud there is no danger that American workmgmon will revor.io their policy on the question. Labor and an archism have no points in common nnd no convention presided over by Mr. I'owdorly will pretend to endorse force and fear us n method of elevating the in terests of the laboring classes. Another topic which will bo discussed is the pro priety of changing the orgaiil/.ation of the oidcr in such n way that state cunlral bodies shall bo moro in- ( lapcii'i.uiil of the general execu tive committee. The object of this is said to lie to make participation in state politics easier for the Knights throughout the country. The Knights of Labor can bo made a strong power for good among our work- ingmcn. In Omaha they have already proved themselves to bo such. Cool heads and brainy leaders should bo sup ported , conservative councils adopted , and public opinion will generally give the order a support , upon which it.s ability to carry out tbe objects of its existence must largely depend. Tin ; New Imiul Olllaes. The commissioner of the general land ollico has at last designated the location of the two additional land olHeos in this state , for which provision was made at the last .session of congress. As foretold months ago by the UKI : , Clnul- ron and Sidney are Ihc favored towns. The Chadron land ofllcc has been n press ing need for nearly two years. It will supply that rapidly filling up section comprised in the three counties of Sheri dan , Dawos and Sioux and the north ernmost portion of Cheyenne county , with a home ollico for entry , contest and iinal proof. At present most of its population are forced to travel from one to two hun dred miles to the nearest land ollice at great inconvenience and expense. Chadron is directly in the center of the district , east and west , and moro nearly still the center of population. As the comity scat of Dawes county , and one of this best built and Nourishing towns of the northwest , its claims for tlio honor of re ceiving ihc land ollico loculion received prompt recognition. The inlltix of settlement in Northwest ern Nebraska , which forced the creation of Iho Clnulron land district , has been in a slightly less degree paralleled by the rush to take up the hinds of Keith and Cheyenne counties. The North Piatto land ollico has proved as inconvenient for the settlers of Western Nebraska as the Valentine ollice has for their northern neighbors. Sidney , which ia selected as the headquarters of the now district , lies in its center and is easy of access from all points. The larg est and most thriving town between North L'latto and Clioyonue , it was the natural choice of the department for the now land olUco. Now that ufter wearisome delays the districls have boon made and . the loca tions decided upon , it is lo be hoped Ihat Ihe ollicers will be promplly appointed and the ollicc.s as promptly opened , Fully twenty thousand people who will be served by the Chadron and Sidney land offices are now forced to transact Hick land busin oss under great disadvantages and at heavy and needless expense.

The republicans of the First district should ask themselves , whether a man having such a record : ifl that of Church llowo has any rightful claim upon the support of any dreertt republican. Leav ing out of question his orrupt methods anil notorious venalty ) we appeal to re publicans to pause ami reflect before they put a premium upon party trea son tifitl conspiracy ngain t its Very exist ence. Ten years ngo , when the republican party was on the vi-vgo of disaster , and every electoral v tecaitfor Hayes ami Wheeler was needed to rclaiirthc party in power , Church Howe cntcrcil into a conspiracy lo deliver republican Nebraska Into the hands of the. enemy. This infamous plot Is not a mere conjec ture. The proof of it does not rest on surmise or suspicion. It is not lo bo pooh-poohed or brushed away by pro nouncing it one of Hoscwntcr'.s malicious campaign slanders. Tha records of Ihc legislature of which Church llowo was a member in " 70-77 , contain the indelible proofs of Iho treasonable enable conspiracy , anil no denial can stand against evidence furnished by his own pen. Hriolly told , the history of this plan to hand over the country to Tildon nnd democracy is as follows : In 187(1 ( Nebraska elected Silas A. Strickland , Amas.i Cobb and A. 11. Connor presidential electors by a vote of ! ilbit ! as against avoto of 10"jl ! ) cast for thoTildenaud Ilcndrieks electors. After the election U was discovered that Iho canvass of this vote could not take place under the then existing law before the legislature convened. The electoral vote hael to bo canvassed in December at the latest , and the regular . - session sion of the legislature did not begin until January. In order to make a legal canvass of the electoral returns , Governor Garber called a special session of the legislature to convene on the.'thof December , ' 70 , at Lincoln , for the pur pose of canvassing the electoral vote of the state. The democratic ofl'ort to cap ture republican electoral votes is historic. Tiltlen's friends , notably Dr. Miller , had been plotting for the capture of ono of the electors from Nebraska , and II is also historic that a largo bribe was ollercd to ono of the electors , General Strickland. The call of the legislature broke into the plan of the plotters , nnd they found a will ing ; anil reckless tool in Church Howe. When Iho legislature convened at the capi tal , Church llowo filed a protest which maybe bo found on pages G , 7 and 8 of the Ne braska House Journal of 1877. The fol lowing extract makes interesting reading : "I , Church Howe , a member of the legisla ture of Nebraska , now coni vened by procla mation of his excellency , Governor Silas Harbor , for the purpose ofr canvassing anil declaring Ihe result ot thaj vote cust in Ne braska for electors f < jr president anil vice president of the United States , hereby enter iny solemn protest ngunst | such act , denying that the governor has powt\r to call tins body In special session for any sui'h purpose , or that this body has .tiny authority to canvasser or declare the result of such vote upon the following grounds : First. This legislature now convened hav ing been elected unilor what is known as the old constitution , has no power to net In the premises , the new constltntlon of the state having lic.cn in t'oico since . November , 1ST. ) . " The second and third clauses deal with technical objections/.and are somewhat lengthy. The concluding sentences of this precious document are as follows : "For the foregoing reasons I protest against any canvass of the electoral vole of the state by this body , ana demand that this , my protest , bo entered upon Iho journal. " ( Signetl ) Church Howe , member of the legislature of Nebraska. The democrats did not respond lo the call of the governor and there was barely a quorum in the senate , while there wore several to spare in the fiouso of winch llowo was a member. The protest en tered by Howe was doubtless prepared by the Tildcn lawyers in Omaha , and llowo had the glory of being the solo champion of Sam Tildcn. The legisla ture ignored Church Howe , spread his protest on its record and canvassed the electoral vote in splto of it. When the legislature convened in Jan uary , 1877 , the presidential contest was at its height in Washington. Church Howe hail changed places from the house to thn sontilc. Karly in the session , a resolution was introduced expressing the conviction on the part of tlio senate that Hayes and Wheeler having received a majority of the electoral votes wore en titled to tlieir seats. This resolution gave rise to a very lively debate which lasted two davs. Church llowo asked to bo excused from voting when it first came up and was so excused. On the final passage of the resolution the record [ page :170 : , Senate Journal 1877 , ] shows the following result : Yeas Ambrose , Balrd , Blanchard , Bryant , Calkins , Cams , Chapman , Colby , Dawos , Gar- Hold , Gilham , Hayes , Kcnnard , Knapp , Pepoon , Powers , Thumiucl , Van Wyck , Walton and Wilcox 23. These voting in the negative wore : Aton , Brown , Covcll , Ferguson , ilinman , Holt , Church Howe and North 8. During the same session of the legisla ture , Church Howe's vote on United States senator for the first three ballots is rccorited as having been east for K. W. Thomas , a South Carolina democrat , [ pages 108 and i08 ! Semite Journal. ] All this time Church llowio professed to bo a republican independent , , republican on national issues and a tnmperaiico granger on local issues. Wo : simply ask what right a man with sneji a'record , has to the support of any republican. AT the last mooting'of t'jio ' city council an ordinance was introduced to narrow south Sixteenth street' . , opposite lot 5 in block 3.10 from 100 foot to , GO feet and to offer the abandoned portion of the street for sale , The ordinaiVco , Which was re ferred to the committee , fan grades and Rtailing , should bo fjporfod ( adversely. The only object is to ( benefit the three owners of the Jot in question by adding thirty-four feef to thet ! lot frontage and making three good lots out of u slnglo lot which now fronts on the alloy. At the point in question the Sixteenth street via duct ends. Tha width of tliu atrcct is none 00 great to accommodate ) tlio traflio which will flow over the bridge. Besides , narrowing the street would render the 1 ley , running from Fifteenth to Six teenth street , practically useless. Kvcry consideration of public convenience is opposed to the schcmo embodied in the rdinancc and it should be sat upon with a loud thud by the council at Us next meeting. , TIIK Burlington road was chiclly re sponsible ) for foisting the bogus railroad commission on the people of Nebraska. The Burling on rend , through its attor neys and tools , succeeded in voting down the resolution at the last stale convention demanding the abolition of the railroad commission.

The people will sooner or later give a decisive answer to the ques tion , STATIS A \ 'n-inTOiv. : ; ( Xcbrntka .lotthinn , The First National bank of Blair has reopened.

The irrepressible conllicl between Ainsworth and Long Pine for county seat honors has taken a new and popular shoot , which is likely to result in peace.

Tlio Coining Man to bo Haiti and Toothless. fi'eio 1 iIi .Sun. 'flic theory that Ihe coming man will be a toothless and hairless creature finds an other champion in Mr. Virgil F. Katou , n newspaper reporter , who undertakes to sustain his opinions in the last number ot the Popular Science Monthly. In order to accumulate a mass of facts as to baldness , it is Mr. Eaton's habit to frequent places of public resort , and to take a seat from which ho can obtain a good view of the tops of the beads of Un people. While the rest of the audience are observing the stage or the pulpit , ho occupies himself with counting tlio bald heads , and those which giye indications of baldness about to come. He finds , ns tlio result of his observations up the pres ent time , that "in most of the eastern cit ies fully ! M pur cent of the men over thirty years of uge show unmistakable signs of baldness , while nearly 10 ! per cent have spots on their heads that are not only bald , but actually polished with the gloss that in supposeil to belong to ox- Iromo old ngo alone. " Now York anil Boston takes the lend in the proportionate number of bald pates , and after these come Philadel phia , Washington and the western towns. Air. .Eaton discovers , lee , that the more refined the show , the more fashionable the church , the greater is the proportion of bald heads. For in stance , when Patti was singing at the Boston theater , -13 per cent of the men on one occasion and 40 per cent on another were baldlioadeit , while at John U Sulli van's exhibition of the manly art onlv 12 jor cent of Iho mon in Mr. Enton's vicin ity were bald. But at Sullivan's per formance many of the men kept tlieir lints on , so that it did not afford a fair test , which was obtained when ho found that 00 per ccnl at ono of Matthew Ar nold's lectures and less than ' . ' 5 nor cone , at a variety theater exhibited baldness or signs of baldness. At the fashionable Trinity church of Boston nearly half of Iho men were cither actually bald or on the road to baldness. Mr. Eaton went to report a Boston funeral anil found that the clergyman , the undertaker and every ono of the mourners was bald. In one store in New York seven of Iho twelve shipping clerks , all under 40 years of age , are unmistakably bald , and two moro arc vainly trying to keep off baldness wita hair restoratives. How women bland with respect to baldness he has , of course , not been able to discover by his method of observation , for 1 hey wear bonnets in public places , and at all times resort to art to hide their deficiencies in the matter of hair. But he assumes that they are far less likely than men to bo bald , for women are nearer to nature in allowing tliu hair to grow. Men cover their hair with hats and caps , and heneo the hair falls away , since il no longer has any function to perform as a natural shield. "Tho days of its u.setiillnc.s.s in the economy of life are past , and , like the tails of the mon keys and the muscles of the cars , it has become rudimentary from disuso.1 Yet if women follow men's habit of cropping the hair , so far as to keep up the practice of banging and fri/.xintr , Mr. Eaton fore sees the sad limo when they will bo as bald as men. His observations as to the tooth are only general Ho can merely say that win In the old mon romomhnr a time when dentists were almost unknown and false teeth a curiosity , now "nearly half the people over twenty years of ago have one or both jaws occupied b.y arlilicial teeth , and the sign of the dentist occupies a conspicuous place on every street cor ner , " But such an assertion forms no basts fora scientific conclusion. Histories and memoirs of men and women of past generations show that dcfcctlvn Uioth were common in those days , and il is only within recent times that the care of the teeth has received proper attention. If there had been skilful and educated dcntirfts two , three , or five centuries ago , they would have found work enough to do , and among people of tlio same gen- gonorul condition as those who now give thorn employment. The disposition to substitute artificial for natural tooth very often , too , conies from mure regard for personal appear- unco. Wo are told , for instance , of coun try towns where many of the young women insist on having really bound teeth removed because they like thu looks of falio teeth better. Mr. Eaton concludes that the indica tions are that the man of the future , and not thi ) distant future , will bo hairless and toothless. It is n very interesting subject , and wo are glad to have to havi- it dlsous.sod according to the method of the enterprising , and painstaking now * pnpor reporter.

Peppermint . llns potentate was born in Oneida county , New York , on Juno H ) , 1810 , says the Farm and Household , and Ins name , which has for many years been kept standing in type in thn chief market .lournals of the world , is Hiram G.Hotch- kiss. Now seventy-live years old , ho is M-vcn years old Ins parents removed from Oneitla county to Ontario conntv. which adjoins \\iiyae \ , and se.ttlc.d in "the town of Phelp.s. At the ago of eighteen ho started a small country store , to which later he attached a llouring-mill , there by becoming a general furnisher of food material. About ltU7 , ten or twoh\ , vcars after Burnett had imt a practical appraisement on the value of the now famous Wayne county weed , Mr. Hoteh- kiss began to buy pepuermlnt oil of the farmers about Lyon.s , who took it to him as the most enterprising merchant they know. Ho also got into the. business of buying the raw material , ns it would bo offered to him in connection with wheat taken to his mill , and distilling the Oil himselt. He presently saw n future for Wayne county popporniint , and , dispos ing ot his business in I'holps , removed in 1H11 to Lyons , hern graiitnilly to ns = orl dominion over the pepperininl-oil busi ness ot the world. ' 1 here arc two or lliroo other dealers in tlio county , but the bulk of the crop jroes to market through the hands of Mr. Hotchkiss. The mint is raised chiefly in the towns of Huron. Sodus , ( talon , Marion , Ar cadia , \Villinm.son , Lyons and ROFC. The loam soil of Iho flat lands of these towns is naturally adapted to it , but the rich ness of tlio plant in oil varies so greatly that producers cannot mix their crops for distilling , taking a pro rata share of the oil , as dairymen mix tlieir milk in a a common pool at the cheese factory , and lake a pro rata share of the choose. The mint acreage of the county this year is estimated to bo about four thousand acres , and this area is said to bo only about one-half of what it would have been if the season had been favorable. Mr. Hotchkiss estimates tlio total prod uct of oil this your to bo worth $120,000. In a fairly good season it rises to $3.r > 0- 000 , with available soil to increase it much beyond this amount. The crop is now of course , in all anil much of it lias boon sent on its way to the candy fact ories , tlio bakeries , and the aching stomachs achs of thi ! world. Pepperminint long ago censed to bo looked ujjon as a weed in those parts. It is a legitimate agricultural product , planted and attended to as systematically as n crop of wheat or potatoes. Thn oil is sent to market fiom Lyons in whole sale quantities , but a small part of each year's product is put up in small phials "to give away to my colicky friends , " ns .Mr. Holehkiss says. Tim bottles for e-ominereo contain twenty ounces , anil eighteen bottles are packed in a case , the current worth of a case atiVt , hand being ? ! HJ. .Mini farmers , who during the season of shipping and packing fre quent Mr. Hotehkiss' factory , say that peppermint-raising is considerably moro profitable than wheat-raising , and is n surer crop , the average ot seasons and the market considered , than almost any thing elbe thin- could produce on their available mint soil.
