Alpena Journal.—The average coun
ty paper comes out of a campaign with
little hdhor and few friends* however
wisely the editor may resolve to keep
dut of the giddy whirl, and act a digni
fied part, yet the importunities of
friendly candidates and the incessant
bull-fagging of his political opponent
soon wear away patience and banish
discretion, and in the wild vernacular
of the woolly west, he turns himself
and his paper loose, starts the mud
pump and becomes a howling lunatic
roarirt around like a lion, seeking
whom he may devour. Aftei: the
smoke of battle clears away, the dead
counted, the wounded sent to the hos
pital and the Victors crowhed, he sadly
looks over his files and thinks, "what is
all when all is done."

"OK THIS PEOPLE, FROM: THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE."
The People's Problem.
"The People's Problem and its Solu
tion," is the title of anew book writ
ten and published by Win, H. Lyon of
Sioux Falls, Dakota, and is believed to
be the lirst book ever published in the
Territory. It is a neat,, cloth bound
book of 166 pages, in which the author
deiineshis position clearly and defends
it forcibly. Glancing at the table of
contents our attention is caught by
sucn sentences as "Increase of wealth
and poverty." "Terrible condition of
sewing women," "Labor saving ma
chinery has not lightened toil".
pointing effects of emancipation"" Nec
essity for employers to pay lowest pos
sible wages," "Goulds and Vai&ljtfbiha
not to blame" Necessity for pools and
organizations," "Strikes and arbitra
tions," "World trembling on verge of
of Revolution" and we involuntarily
turn the pages to learn the author's
views on such momentous subjects.
Our interest never flags from first to
lasti Many of the views are practical
and could be easily executed at the
present time, with great benefit to the
masses, while some appear to us too
far in advance of the generation. Rev
olutiohs, to be peaceable, must be
brought about withgteat rare.
''The mills of the Gods grind slowly,"
and it will require years, perhaps cen
turies to briiig aiout the working man's
millenium which Mr. Lyon portrays.
The book as a whole is worthy of a care
ful reading, and we assure our readers
that they will not regret the small pur
chase price of TScts. Send to William
H. Lyon, Sioux Falls, Dakota.

A Great Paper-
The West'ern Rural ol: Chicago, is one
of the most progressive and thoroughly
practical, farm papers of this country.
Constantly alert as to whatever is of
interest to the farmer and raiser, it

his interests or advocate hik cause un
der any and all circumstances.
It is the acknowledged champion of
the farmer's rights, and as such is the
the uncompromising enemy of mon
oplies of every form. So great also has

I. The object is to revise only those
texts and chapters directly referring to
women, and those also in which women
are made prominent by exclusion. As
all siuh passages combined form but
one tenth of the scriptures, the under
taking will not be so laborious as, at
the first thought one would imagine.
These texts, with the commentaries,
can easily be compressed into a duodec

II. Thecomniehtaries will be of a
threefold character, the writers in the
different branches selected according
to their special aptitudes for the work:
1. Two or three Greek and Hebrew
students would be required to devote
themselves to the translation and tr.e
meaning of particular words and texts
in the original.
2 Others Would devote themselves
to Biblical history^ old manuscripts,
to the new version^ and to the latest
theories as to the occult meaning of
certain texts and parables.
3. For the commentaries on the
plain English version a committee of
some twenty members would be neces
sary. These would be women of earn
estness and liberal ideas, who would be
quick to see the real purport of the 3i
nle as regards their sex. Among them
the various books ol'the Old and New
Testament would be distributed, mak
ing about three books to each member
of the committee.
