Knowledge of a practical character has
so increased in our generation that what
weie obstacles thirty years ago are not
such to-day. In a collective sense, our
national perceptions are so enlarged
that men in common life quickly take
into view small objects as well as re
mote ones having connection with each
other, and, bsing possessed of ability
to execute, they triumph where their
forefathers despaired. Hitherto,
wherever the red man and the buffalo
lived, the white man has planted gar
dens and orchards, and bounded the
horizon with fields of grain. The
Plains have as many natural advanta

HAHK. TU'AIW OIV THE JVEW
STYLE WALKING DRESSES.
Mark Twain says: "Who thill de
scribe the exquisite taste and beauty of
the new style' of ladies' walking dress
es? Taken as a class, women can con
ceive more outlandish and ugly cos
tumes than one would think possible
without the gift of inspiration. But
this lime they have been feliitous in
invention. The wretched waterfall
still remains, of course, but in a modi
fied form; every change it has under
gone is for the better. First it repre
sented a bladder of Scotch snuff; next
it hung down a woman's back like a
canvass covered ham; afterwards it
contracted and counterfeited a turnip
on the back of the head; now it sticks
out straight behind, and looks like a
wire muzzle on a grey hound. Nest
ling in the midst of this long stretch of
head and hair reposes the little butter
cake of a bonnet, like a jocky saddle
on a race horse. You will readily per
ceive that this looks very unique and
pretty and coquettish.
But the glory of the costume is the
robe the dress. No furbelows, no
flounces, no biases, no gores, no flutter
wheels, no hoops to speak of nothing
but a rich, plain, narrow black dress,
terminating just below the knee in saw
teeth (points downward) and under a
flaming red skirt, enough to put your
eyes out, that reaches down only to the
ankle bone, and expose the w restless
Charming, fascinating, seductive, be
witching. To see a lovely girl of sev
enteen, with her saddle on her head,
and her muzzle behind, and her veil
just tipping the end 'of her nose, come
tripp'pg along in her hoopless, red
bottomed dress, like a churn on fire, is
enough to set a man wild. I must drop
this subject; I can't stand it."

FATALITY OF OVERWORK..
It is said that the financial crash of
1857 killed thirteen bank Presidents in
the city of New York. They were
not all crushed to death instantly.!
Some were, and they were dug out of
the ruins only to be buried. Others
survived several months. They drag
ged their shattered frames about front
place to place; some crossed the ocean
and w&ndered in foreign lands, teek
ing rest and finding none. Some lived
one year, two years, or more, wreck
ed indeed of what they had been, "dy
ing at the top," as Dean Swift said he
should die, and he did. Perhaps the
number thirteen is an exaggeration.
Perhaps it should be stated at a dozen

whom great burdens of responsibility
and anxiety rested, .succumbed to that
storm, and are now at rest in their
At this moment many men of high

life, merchants, bankers, ministers.
lawyers and some physicians are trav
eling in Europe in quest of repose of
mind, relaxation from the cares of bus
iness, who have gone too late. A
friend of ours recently . returned has
mentioned the names of some he met
abroad, who are searching in vain for
a new lease of life. They are dying
at ihe top.
One is from C . He began trade
in that city less than ten years ago.
He was prospered from the start. As
the grain was poured into his granaries
the gold or greenbacks flowed into his
coffers. Riches increased, and he set
his heart upon them. The more he
had, the greater his greed for more.
He gave bis mind to his business all
day and most of the night. He had
small time to sleep, and none to pray.
He is now sick and a wreck. In the
prime of life, in the midst of his days
he was threatened with softening of
the brain. He is dying at the top.
A New York merchant is over there
with' his family. They have a man
servant and a courier to take care of
him, and lead him from city to city and
from land to land. They were in
Paris in the early Summer, and at a
German waering place later, aud will
winter ia Italy or Egypt. He has no
pain, and denies that he is out of
health. But others have to do his
thinking, and they Ied him "whither
he would not," for he is only a child in
their hands. . By and by paralysis will
take him as he sits in his chair after
dinner, and the family will bring him
home as freight. He is not dead now,
but is dying at the top.
Fifty clergymen, perhaps more, have
gone from the United States within the
past six months because they were
overworked or overworked them
selves. It comes to the same thing.
Their people got out of them all they
could get, and asked for more. Per
haps as many lawyers, politicians, men
in various departments of active life,
have been compelled for the same rea
son to suspend their labors, and seek
in a foreign land a resp.te from that
intense application to business which
has threatened them with a premature
There are more men thus driven to
death in America than in any other
country. The rush of mind in this
country is unexampled abroad. In
England and on the continent of Eu
rope there is mental activity and com
petition, and rivalry and greed, and
great industry and earnest devotion to
useful labors, and men accomplish
great things and aim at more; but they
are not in such haste to be rich, nor so
fierce in the pursuit of good, nor so
restless in their ambitions. You may
see the difference in the street, as men
walic to their several callings. Here
'.hey go with a rush, as if they were to
be ruined if not at the place of busi
ness in time. Four thousand mer
chants on the same floor in Hamburg
present a widely different spectacle
from the same number in New. York.
In no city but ours could an Exchange
be opened for business in the evening.
Our people are in such haste to do what
is to be done, and are so fearful that
others will get ahead of them in the
race, that they sacrifice health and life
in the pursuit of what isof;en of no use

there are traitors in the camp! .

REAR AND RULL FIGHT.
The fellow who humbugged the peo
pie of Omaha recently, by failing to get
up a fight between Bruin and the Tex
an Bull, has succeeded much belter at
St. Joe. The Union, of the 17ih in
stant, gives the following account of
the affair: . .
"This novel exhibition . look place
yesterday afternoon, upon the Fair
grounds, and was witnessed by about
five hundred boys and gligolts.
There is no. question but that the
proprietor of this show filled bis bill;
the bull pithed the bear over and the
bear returned the compliment by em
bracing the bull. The fight lasted
about an hour. Much of this lime was
consumed however, in iwisting the
bull's tail, and dragging the bear to
wards the bull. The bull stood licking
its nose when the bear was drafted
from its cage. The bear came out tail
foremost, and immediately began some
extempore evolutions; rolling over and
over, standing upon its head, howling
furiously and snapping at the chain
which bound him, savagely. It was a
long time before ihey could be brought
together for the first round; but, by
perseverance, pulling, whipping,
punching and much scrambling, the
thing was done. The bull made a
grand charge, lifting the bear from the
ground by his horns, and tossing him
about six feet The bear howled the
audience cheered the bull shook his
head triumphantly. So it continued,
the bull charging the bear, the bear
clawing, embracing and biting the bull.
A portion of the fight was fierce enough
to satisfy the most morbid taste. The
fight was clearly a drawn one, both
aying down beside each other, the bull
too tired to continue the encounter, and
the bear quite willing toforget the past
and be friends.
The bull, however, was somewhat
injured, having about two inches bitten
off from ihe end of his tongue. The
bear lost the whole of his available
otisvk af wlnU. .
To encourage such exhibitions woum
be to encourage morbid tastes. Last
year Spain wasted over two millions of
dollars in bull .- fights, . and the entire
press of the civilized world united in
condemning it. Our ; country, in its
love of novel excitement, is drifting
towards all classes of exhibitions which
ought to be prohibited by law.
JgS!!. S. Jacobs writes to the
Idaho Statesman, under due of Silver
City, October 4th, the following par
ticulars of another bloody outrage'eum
milted by Indians in Flint District
Owyhee: "A horrible murder was
committed within a half a mile ef our
mill last night. A man named Joseph
Caldwell, formerly of Chilicothe, Mis
souri, was engaged in hauling wood for
us, and was camping in a tent. The
Indians came up about the time he was
eating supper and shot him with ball
and also with arrows. He was scalp
ed, stripped and . then put on the fire.
His body was not mutilated, but it was
horrible burned. We traced the track
of the dog for some distance by the
blood. His cattle were driven off and
all his things taken. There were
about three Indians, judging from the
number of moccasin tracks. A compa
ny is now forming to go after them.
Buffalo has already handled
sixty million bushels of grain in one
year, and, estimating the results of the
future by the past, the time is not far
distant when the grain trade of that
city will be a hundred million bushels
annually. A movement of sixty mil
lion bushels of grain by rail, according
to the figuring of the Buffalo Commer
cial, would require 6,357 trains of 25
cars each, equal to seventeen trains
daily by each of the two roads during
the entire navigation season of two
hundred days, and yet the grain trade
is scarcely one-half the tonnage to be

The Iudiau Treaties Ordered
by General Sherman.
Headquarters Military Division
of the Missouri.
General Orders No. 10:
1, WnEkEAs, The peace commis
sion organized by the act of Congress,
approved July 20. 1867, has coccluded
a treated of peace with the Kiowa,
Comanche and Apache tribes of Indians,
and also a seperate treaty of peace with
the Cheyennas and Arapahoe?, and as
treaties are yet incomplete, it is hereby
made known that hostilities here
tofore existing on the part of the troops
as against these tribes will cease.
A 2. By the terms of the treaties
these tribes will ultimately be located
iu the Indian country to the south of
the State of Kansas; but as they are
to be allowed to hunt game outsiae of
settled limits of Kansas, Nebraska and
Colorado, in the prairie country to the
south of the South Platte, it is hereby
ordered that this treaty right be re
spected on the part of these tribes, al
though the treaty limits the right to the
Cheyennes and Arapahoes alone.
3. Commanding officers of posts
and of troops en route are hereby re
quired to treat all such hunting parties
in a friendly spirit, but to neglect no
precaution for safety, as troops should
observe always, no matter where they
are ; and all troops are commanded to
spare no proper effort to keep the
peace with these Indians, because it is
the earnest wish of the Government of
the United States that war be avoided,
and the civil agents of the government
have a full and fair chance to reduce
them to a state of comparative civiliza
tion. 4. The commanding officers of the
departments of the Missouri and the
Platte, charged with the police of the
plains within the limits of their com
mands, may also use force, if neces
sary, to restrain citizens, either on the
border, or who travel by established
roads, from committing acts of violence
against the Indians, trading with them
culated to disturb the. pacific relations
thus established with these tribes.

J5TOf political prospects in Eng
land, the London correspondent of the
New York Times writes:
I was dining the other evening in
company with a sagacious and well
known member of the political world.
Some one said, in reference to the roy
al family, "we have probably seen the
last of such a reign as the Queen's.
Nothing but her . reputation for virtue
and domesticity among the poorer
orders of society saves us from trouble
now, and the Prince of Wales will find
that he has a harder task before him
than his mother encountered." "If,"
said the politician, "we go on as we
are doing now I firmly believe that the
Prince of Wales will never come to
the throne at all." This seemed a
startling statement, but it is borne out
by all the indications of the times.
JCQPrnfessor Tindall, in his work
on "Sound," says: "We have the
strongest reason for believing that
what the nerves convey to the brain is
in all cases motion. It is she motion
extited by sugar in the nerves of taste
which, transmitted to the brain, produ
ces the sensation of sweetness; while
bitterness is the result of the motion
produced by aloes. It is the motion
excited in the olfactory nerves by the
effluvium of the rose, which announces
itself in the brain as the odor of the
rose. It is the motion imparted by the
sunbeams to the optic nerves which,
when it reaches the brain, awakes the
consciousness of light; while a similar
motion imparted to other nerves re
solves itself into heat in the same won
