PLAT1 SMOUTH WEERAKSA.,
"THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5 1871.
While the figures so far indicate that
the new Constitution is defeated by a
very small majority, yet there is oo cer
tainty of it. We hhall not abandon all
bone until the of!t:ial count is made,
which must be some time durint: the

The indications now are that the Cas
County Fair will he a success" if our
wn people do anything like their duty
in making it so. We have seen quite a
uuuiber of men from other counties who
will be on hand with stock, products,
manufacture, eta, and we expect to
820 exhibited some of the finest stock in
the west. Many of the animal v

lysre, and competition will run high.

no one forget that all entries must. Lc

Erj Herald : I am glad to see such
a change in minds of the citizens in fa
vor of Ordinance No. G. They are' be
ginning to see that it will be better for
:di to iiav the license of ten dollars, and
yet a bridge built with it for .$1,4 JU,
lijun to build it with city orders, draw
ing interest, making it cost the tax
payers nearly twice as much by the time
thev arc naid. with interest I hear
now but two complaints against the 1
cense. First the increased pay of the
officers. To that 1 have nothing to say.
I leave that with the Council, believing
they will do what is right, in the matter
Second, tliat it is not etiual, that the
Council should have put more on the
large merchants and less on the sia'l
ones. Now let us see how the case stands
To make it plain let us suppose two
cases. First a man with ten thousand
dollars assessed capital, and an fother
with five hundred dollars, our taxes are
about 4 per cent. Now one pays to the
State, county, and citj, $150 per year
and the other with $500 pays $22. 50, and
while they are striving in competition
with each other in busines, the Mayor
and Council pass a law to license all
business men for ten dollars each. Both
grumble and don't like to pay it, but
finally do g). Now how does the ca.-.e
stand, the one with the largest capital
pays $400 per year, the other $:J2.oO,
now is that not near enough. Is that
worse than under the old law. Let us
see. Take the bar keeper for instance,
one may have his bar fixed up comforta
ble for his customers, and a stock of li
quors to any amount; the other may not
have stock to the amount of $50, still
both will have to pay $200 license, lor
the same business, regardless of stock.
And again a drayman may have a team
W.orth $400, he will not have to pay any
iuorc license than the niaa with a team
worth $20 or less. They have to pay
the same license for the same privilege.
Mi' friend Ed. Buttery can see nothing
wrong. about it, but he thinks it ought
to be more equal, and I don't know but
ne is right, jjet us compare Lis case
with Mr. Miller's, one of tur draymen.
Miller has a team not worth a $100 all
told, and he pays ten dollars license,
while my friend Buttery has a stable filled
with some of the best stock "in the
country, and with buggies, carriages and
all kinds of vehicles to suit, and just
pays nix. Now, Mr. Editor will you
please tell iue-howuiueh friend B. would
have to pay, to pay equally or in pro
portion to Mr. Miller's ten dollars and
Al'R I'l'ULIC SCHOOLS.
The last qualification of teachers of
which I will speak is aptness. There
are great differences here in persons of
the same education and general abilities.
Some teachers are as much confined to
the text book as some lawyers are to
their briefs, and some ministers to their
notes. They cau ask the questions in
the book and that is about al! ; they
have no ability to originate new questions
to draw from the circumstances around
them fresh and forcible illustrations, by
which the child is roused and interested.
Their methods are simply a dull tedi
ous plodding through books, that cannot
possibly however perfect and admirable
thay may be have the life and glow of
the living teacher. To study under
them is like driving a heavy dray-horse
up bill in a drenching rain, through
heavy mud in a farm wagon. While to
study under one apt to teach, is like
riding in a phaeton, drawn by prancing
fcteeds over the rolling prairie in the
bright sun light.
Text books are well in their place, but
they do notteach everything needed by
cur children. They do not teach always
in the best way.. Let our teacher teach
botany, geology, ornithology and as
tronomy, not with text books, but with
specimens. Let the children bring them
the flowers and plants, the stones and
shells, that lie in their path to the
hool room, and learn their structure,
habits aud services ; every scholar is a
text for instruction in physiology. Let
the teachers give, once a week, fifteen or
twenty minutes to a childern's lecture on
the anatomy of tho huruan body, on
physiology and the laws of health. Let
the wonders of the starry heavens bo un
folded to the child let the bird that
flies in the air, and the beast in the field,
the insect, all be a text for suggesting
most important information, and for
awakening the child's interested atten
tion. The habit of close accurate observa
tions of the utmost importance. Suceess
in life largely depends upon it. This
habit, a judicious teacher can form in
the child very early. Let him make

.iicaior to a practical acquaintance with
syery thing around us. R- F.

At a meeting of the Directors of the
Union Pacific it. 11. Co., on yesterday,
were present several distinguished gen
tlemen from the once far famed city of
Omaha, Nebra-ka, among which we are
pleased to name ex-Senator Thayer,
Senator Hitchcock, lr. Lowe, and the
Hon. John I. Bcdick, the most promi
nent lawyer in Nebra-ka.
The business of these distinguished
gentlemen from the far we-r, was to
make an arrangement with the Unim
Pacific Directory, by which the two Ne
braska roads, the Northwestern and
Southwestern, should have the privi
lege of the use cfthe local depot grounds
of the Union Pacific railroad at Omaha,
and also the privilege of using the Union
Pacific bridge, so as to connect and trans
fer freight and passengers with the Iowa
roads at Council Bluffs, where the Union
Pacific and Iowa roads aro about to
erect large Union transfer and passorgor
depots. Mr. lledick did the talking for
the Omaha delegation, and did it well,
lie spoke of the certainty of the early
completion of the Bridge and the im
portance of the deeJ, conveying to the
Union Pacific their local doiot grounds
at Omaha, proviiing for the riidit fcf way
through the same, and also the u-e of
the Bridge to t nable the Nebraska roads
to reach the terminus of the Union
Pacific at Council lilufl's, a city whi:-h
now ra hates all the important raihoads
in the Northwest; as a condition of great
importance to the railroad interests of
Mr. I J. -dick asserted that unless these
conditkos were accepted bv the Union
Baiiro.ul Co., Omaha would withhold
their deed for the local depot grounds
anl also the ." i ) wlitcti tie-' i:a.l
agreed to give for the locution of the
bndire which saved Omaha iro:u l'ein'
left off the line of the road. This prop
osition from the gentleman west of the
Missouri, seemed fair and .roper, buf
from some cause or other was rejected

The Commissioner of IVn-ior.s wiil
soon issue instruction and new regula
tions for procuring bounty land wairants

Each of the surviving persons in the
following classes are entitled to a like

But a sanguine young man in search
of a career has tluiereut ideas. Oar or
dinary experience with such a one is that
he takes us theoretically by the throat
and bids us "prove our boasted philan

good situation in New York. If we
suge.-t that from our suburbs to the
Pacific, there is said to be a reasonable
large stretch of country which would
supply every willing young man on the
face of the earth, with work and wages,
he visits us with his lof'ry scorn and in
dignation: in New York he coutinues to
staive, writing us down forever as a
charlatan or an ass because we would
have him do otherwise. The women
too, who most loudly claim indepen
dence, are singularly exacting of help.
In obtaining it they write letters to tbi

to maintain themselves, savagely abus

gone out of date, was held out of keep
