per cent, of the total deaths are from

prove fatal. The mortality is but little
less in tho west, hence we ray treat care

do not attribute the disease so much to
what is taken into the stomach as is
generally supposed (although the diet
should be watched closely), but to a
great exfeut to the general habits of life,

There is a proposition before the Con
stitutional Convention to engraft a clause
! into that instrument making it obligatoi J'
upon every parent to send their children
of a certain age to school at least a cer
tain number of months during each year.
We have no desire to discuss this ques-
, , , - - . , .
j tion iu tact, we narJiy ueiieveu auums
of discussion but we do de.sire to enter
our protest against placing any such
clau-o as this in the body of the Consti
tution as it is to be submitted to the peo
pie, for the simple leason that it would
endanger the f-r.t're document. If any
cm; wishes to have a fair expression of
the views of the people upon this ques
lion, let the proposition be submitted
separated;.-. For our ourself, we can say
that we are opposed to the clause, be
cause we believe it to be in dircvt oppo
sition to the principles of Republican
Government. While we think no one
will question the fact that education is
the great civilizcr of the world, and is
the foundation stone of Republican in
stitutions and self government, yet we
have no more right to force education
than we have to force religion, which is
strictly prohibited by the Constitution of
the United States. In the intelligence
of the masses lies the safety of the na
tion ; but if we attempt to force that in
telligence the inate principle of liberty
itself rebels against it and thereby we
kill the root l3 endeavoring to increase
the growth of the branches. Let our
Constitution makers and our law makers
strengthen the branches of free govern
ment by cultivating the rout, which is a
desire for knowledge and truth. Render
ever- aid possible to the system of edu
cation, and we will guarantee that the
parents of the country, who as fully ap
preciate these benefits as does any mem
ber of the Constitution, will not be back
ward in accepting them, and the men
and women of the country will grow in
knowledge because they dove knowledge,
and not because it is attempted to be
forced upon them. You can no more
force a man to be a Webster or a
Philips than you ean force him to be a
christian. Give him the opportunity
and the incentive, and if lie does not pro
gress your force work will prove of no

The Legislature of Iowa has taken
measures to preserve, or rather to re

valuation for five years is exempted,
