One of the constitutional amendments
which will be voted on this year in Ohio
proposes that municiple and town officers
shall be elected in each odd numbered
and State and 'county officers in each
even numbered year. This won hi re
duce the number of elections one halt in
e ich case. Yearly elections have grown
unpopular in Ohio as in many other Sta
tes. The biennel amendment will proba
bly be adopted.
ADM ITT IN Q TOO MUCH.
Tiic Birminbam (Ala,) Aye-Herald, in
a disgrunted editorial concerning the ap
pointments of colored men to the impor
tant offices of Collector of Customs in
South Carolina and Itegister of Deeds in
the General Land Office, and to "third
rate" pest office and mail clerkships in
the south, which latter says are "bestew
cd by the wholesale on the colored bro
ther" by the President, has to acknow
ledge concerning the newely appointed
Register of Deeds:
Lynch is probably about the best spec i
men of his race that could be found to
fill the a responcible office. He is a clenr
headed man and has an unobjectionable
record. lie presided as temporary Chair
man over the convention which nominat
We submit that this admission is fatal
to any demurrer against the appointment
of colored people. If a man be "clear
headed" and of "unobjectional record,"
which is to say honest and competent,
why should he be denied an office to
which'he aspires? If any colored men ap
pointed to office have not the requis
ites of a clear head and unobjectional
record let protest be made against the ap
pointment, jast as against the appoint
ment of any white man devoid of them.
But to object simply on the ground of race
or color is unconstitutional and absurb.
The constitution faaakes the colored man
a citizen; inherent reason teaches that if
he be well qualified for any office, whetiij
er of blaeikng shoes or distributing mails,
or of registering deeds, or of legislating
in congress, he should ha permitted fo
display his qualification.
A CHANGE OF WEAPON.
Last winter I climed Lookout Mountain
in company with a veteran of the latt
war. It was his first visit since the day
of the memorable assault, and as we
climed he fought the battle over again
for tnv benefit, As the conflict waxed
hotter he grew excited, and on our arriyil
at the hotel near the summit was atfevei
heat We then passed on through the
narrow defile which leads to the pinnacle
where we were confronted by a diminu
tive specimen of the genus "crackti'
with these words, "Ifjyou gentlemen wish
to go to the top, you must pay twenty-
five cents. This was too much for the
pent up feelings of my warlike compan
ion, who. tragically waving his strong
right arm, shouted: "I won't pay it.
Twenty-five years ago I came up here
with a sword in my band' But the
modern Le-midas, moving not otherwise
than to display a deputy sheriffs badg-,
quietly remarked: "Well, sah, you must
come up with a quarter today." The
money was paid. C. C. Teale, in Editor's

COLLECTED ON THE COUNTY COUKT HOUSE
1WND QUESTION BY THE IIOAHD OK THADK
AND ADDDEPHED TO THE VOTERS'
Plattsmotth, Neb., May 15, 1889.
The county commissioners of Cass county
having called an election to vote for or
"gainst issuing $80,000 twenty-year court
house bonds, we desire to lay the actus
facts before everv property owner and
voter in the county, relying upon thei
intelligent consideration of the same in
casting their vote at the coming election
June 8th, 1889.
The total bonded indebtedness of the
county is $100,000, These are the rail
road bonds, and the interest has been paid
us it accrued. The principal is due $20,
000 in June of each of the years of 1890
91-92-93-94. Cash in the sinking fund
to pay these bonds is now $50,000, and
sufficient cash in the other funds to pay
all current expenses. So the real indebt
edness of the county is only $50,000 at
the present time-
Total valuation county, 1888, $4,743,779
Valuation of Plattsinouth
City and Precinct $1,287,191
Eighty thousand dollars at 5
per cent will cost annually,. . . .$4,000,
Nine-tenths of one mill on the
total valuation will raise $4,207
More than sufficient to pay the interest
on the bonds.
The average valuation on eighty acres
of land in the county as shown by the
records is about $450. so that the owner
of eighty acres wo'jld have to pay
court house tax of about 40 cents, or less,
each vear. These figures are based, on
the 1883 assessment. The valuation wil
be greater in 1889, by possibly $300,000,
and will increase largely each succeeding
We believe that a new court house
should be built, not only for the sake of
building the same in our city but for the
protection of the records of the county
clerk, county treasurer, county register,
county judge and the clerk of the dis
trict court, in all of which records almost
everv farmer and laud owner in tue
county is vitally interested.

Prof. Huxley on the Morel8gf
Prof. Ilnxlev has predicted that the
time will come when it will be a reproach
to be sick. - When one freind meets an
other he will as soon ask "Are you hon
est"? as "Are you well"? for a man will
be considered foohh, not to say criminal,
who gets sick. Such a state of public
feeling will sometime be brought about.
Certainly it is true that the morels of
health are receiving more and more at
tention. A greatly increasing number or
people every year prevent the develop
ment of all blood, pulmonary and liver
decease. This is proved by the enor
mously increased use of Dr. Pierce's Gol
den Medical Discovery, which nips all
such ailments in the bud.

ATraveline Man Creates Great Ex

Independence, Iowa, Oct. 14, 1888.
Rhmmatio Syrup Co., Jackson, Mich:
Gents: Your Mr. Bropka came here
toiiiirht and registered as agent for Ilib
bard's Rheumatic Syrup, and as he did
so it awakened in me an interest ncyer
lefore realized in a guest at my bouse.
You will not wonder at it when I tell
you the story. For years I have been
greatly afflicted with inflammatory rheu
matism, the paia and soreness of the
joints at time3 being almost unbearable;
could move about only with the aid of
crutches. In addition to this uiy stomach
became badly diseased, and neuralgia set
in, which threatened to end my day. A
traveling man stopping with me gave
quite a history of your Syrup, and the
peculiarities of its combination, which
induced me to try jt. I have taken six
bottles and no act in my life affords me
greater satisfaction than m writing you
I am a well man.
It will be a pleasure for me to answer
any communications, for I believe it to
be the best remedy ever formulated.

The Wanderer Amid the fJloriea or Hill

One of the greatest charms about Nature is
that she never distinctly moralizes. A poor
sinner out at the elbows, perhaps from lack
of worldly wisdom, may wander along by
ways and hedge rows quite secure in the con
sciousness that no bush or tree is likely to
draw the trigger of a moral gun and send a
cold ballet of orthodoxy into his one vulner
able spot the heel, he fondly imagines, of an
unsung Achilles. No, Nature is too tender
hearted for that The sun smiles cheerfully
at him, the leaves rustle musically for him,
the great trees are as hospitable in offering
him a seat at their roots as if he were the
king of Wall street, the inventor of electric
light or the author of "Passion Prisms for
Analyzing Impurity." Everything combines
to surround him with an atmosphere of
peace. He may forget his shabby attire and
disappointed hopes and serenely open his
heart to the benign influences which his alma
mater weaves about him. Her teachings are
too subtle for him to rebel against
AN UNCONSCIOUS AFFECTION.
Although a tramp may not formulate his
thoughts, there is no doubt something of this
feeling is in his heart The nomadic tribes
organized bands of tramps who believe in the
heaven-father and the earth-mother gypsies,
Bedouins, Indians and Tartars, are true, if
unconscious, lovers or nature. ineir lan
guage, picturesque and adorned with similes
and metaphors drawn from inexhaustible
treasures of winds and waves and mountains,
bespeaks poetic devotion to the harmonious
inflections of their musical mother tongue.
The most genuine poetry is still found in the
oral traditions and rudo minstrel improvisa
tions of wandering tribes, and the saddest
music, that most tinged with realization of
an undercurrent of remorseless fate, may be
heard in the wild strains of the peasants who
wander over the rugged mountains of Nor
way, or may be heard in the fireside songs of
the dwellers in Siberian tents.
There is somewhat amusing In the fact
that three-fourths of the tramps of the world
are unconscious of their own affection for
nature. Go into analytical rhapsodies over
nature's loveliness to a gypsy and he will
quizzically look at you askance, to an Indian
and he will grunt an unmoved assent, to an
American tramp he elevates his eyebrows
in disdain of sentimental weakness.
Yet they steep themselves in golden sun
light, lie contentedly in cool shade by a trout
stream to watch the darting minnows in a
dark brown pool, and become acquiescent
crucibles in which nature drops many a
dainty seed of thought to germinate and
blossom finally into action, or to be eaten
away by the acrid bitterness of its surround
ings. They know not the causa of their own
contentment, but they fool that nature de
mands nothing of them, not even work. She
offers boundless freedom, and in return.
whilo apparently giving nothing, they give
the unconscious devotion of a lifetime.
There is a certain cheerfulness about the
genuine tramp that is attractive to the stu
dent of human fife. This cheerfulness is not
so much optimistic as philosophic. It is not
a blana unconsciousness of evil like that
shown by Lamb's friend, George Dyer, who,
when Lamb asked what he thought of a mur
derer who had destroyed two families, bro
ken prison by suicide and was then being
carried to a cross roads grave, merely replied:
"Why, I think, Mr. Lamb, he must have
been rather an eccentric character." But
rather the quiet, good humor of the sports

THE BATTERED HAT IS LIFTED.
Cheerfulness is generally supplemented bv
courtesy, and this is true of the average tramp
I hroughout my rambles I have never hesi
tated to address any wayfarer, unless of
vicious look, and in nearly all cases the bat
tered hirt has been politely lifted and often a
curious bit or information about scenerv.
plants or flowers has been imparted. The
general politeness of the average American
tramp is as far beyond that, for instance, of
the English cabby or policeman as the grace
of the free growing pine is beyond that of
the clipped and stilted boxwood. A proper
transmutation of forces might result in the
cabby's being steeped in genial sunlight as a
nondescript harmless element of our. civiliza
tion, while the American tramp might be
paid for his courtesy as a useful citizen
abroad. Unless indeed to the latter change
of climate brought change of manners.
ueriaia p is inar. tne influence or warm
days in the middle states "when spring un
locks the flowers to paint the laughing soil"
has a genializing effect upon the army of
tramps who march along the byways of civil
ization. One who studies them will see that
undjserved opprobrium has rested upon their
manners if not upon their morals. - Not all
