DO NOT STOP THE SCHOOL!
A rka for Winter Sanday-scliools.
ilY Deap. Friends:
It is a fact, though a fact hard to be
accounted for, that many Sunday
schools, especially in country, districts,
close in the fall, and sometimes remain
closed far into the spring.
"Why? Is Bible instruction less
valuable or les3 needed in -winter than
In summer ? Are souls less precious,
or is labour for their conversion less a
duty ? Do the world, the flesh, and the
devil, cease to allure and destroy? Do
sickness and death cease their work ?
Are all sure of renewed opportunity
neit year? To ask these questions
suggests the answer.
Why-should the work cease? You
give especialy care to your common
school in -winter; get the best teachers,
.and expect the largest attendance and
the best interest.
Literary Societies, Lyceums, Lec
tures, all literary and educational
movements are in full and successful
operation in winter. In social life it
is the same. Social ' gatherings for
purposes of amusement or profit, or
both, are multiplied and better sustain
ed during this part of the year.
Christians multiply their meetings
and efforts for their own and others
good. . )Ve look for revivals mostly
too many of us only in winter. It is
the season of activity. And when all
else is active, why should the Sunday
school the best, in many instances
the only, means of religious instruction
for the children and youth go into
winter quarters and lie dormant;
rather die, and await a feeble and un
certain resurrection next spring?
I know the excuses, I dare not call
them reasons, for this course I only
ask. Are they vaild?- Will the
Master accept them? Cau you meet
them, and the dear ones who are to die
this winter, at the. Judgment? I en
treat you to pray over this matter.
Ask Jesus.. Ask your, conscience.
Ask the" children. ' If they say, Keep
n, let it not bo said, as a little girl
once exclaimed, "Our Sunday-school
stopped ye8terda3" "Why was that?"
she was asked. "Because there were
no teachers: they did not come any
more, so Mr. -stopped the school ;"
and her grieved and troubled look, and
her quivering lip, tbld how sorely she
felt the loss of her Sunday-school.
No! the school should not close,
liather replenish the library. Get new
papers! Renew old subscriptions!
Sedcuble your efforts to lead
the - children ' to Jesus! Call
in new scholars! Let. us have a
glorious winter campaign for Jesus
and the children ! I will do all I can to
aid you. "Write me about' it;, By all
means, hold cn. Do not. -.stop the
school! . Yours in love.

THE MOEHAN HOUSE.
A minister, the Rev. "W. II. II. Mur
ray, sometimes called Adirondack Mur
ray, has written a book on the horse,
in which he gis a history of the
Morgan Horse. "We have gone over
the main features before but append
Mr. Murray's remarks for the benefit
of our farmer friends and. brother
Justin Morgan was about fourteen
hands high, and weighed not over 030
pounds a very small horse to have
won immortal fame by the excTliehce
of his descendants. In the power of
transmitting his high qualities to his
descendants he stands unequalled by
any horse that ever lived. His' color
was dark bay; the mane, tail, and legs
black, with no white hairs on any part
of the body. The inane and tail were
coarse and quite ; heavy, the hair
straight and not cully". The head was
small, lean and bony ; the ears small,
Cne, and wide apart; th9 eye3 promi
nent, dark, and pleasant ; the forehead
broad and the faco straight; the muz
zle small, and the lips close and firm;
the nostrils very large; the back very
short; shoulder-blades and hip bones
long and oblique ; the loins broad and
muscular; the body long, round, and
deep; the chest capacious; the legs
short, thin, hard, wide, and free from
superfluous meat; the ' muscles very
large for so small a horse, and: exhibit
ing his developement in this respect at
every step; the hair soft and glossy,
and long about the fetlocks ; the feet
small, but shapely, and with the legs
free from blemish. He was a fast
walker and a clean trotter. Some con
tend that he made his mile in three
minutes, others in four. In these
days, however, he would be voted slow
in this respect. "While ho was proud,
bold, fearless, vigorous ever, ready
for a race or a trotting match he was
one of the most docile and tractable
horses of which we have any record.
He was patient, gentle, and kind, and
loved to be handled ; but he disliked
children, and dogs were his special
aversion. When running loose in the
yard or field-he would chase a dog out
of sight the moment ho saw him,- He
was a most perfectly trained parade
horse, and would move backward or
sidewiso at the will of the rider. Of
course Justin wa3 always wanted by
the militia brigadiers on "general train
ing" days. He was playful and in con
tinual motion when taken out without
halter or bridle. In point of speed, he
always won in short races, because he
went off like the springing of a steel
trap. In the harness ho was quiet, pa
tient in the bad places, and alwajTS
ready and willing for a "pull."
In point of strength aild willingness
and most of his life was spent in
the ordinary work of a farm ho had
no equal in all the country round.
Many anecdotes of his feats of strength
were still in circulatiou when his his
tory was sought to be gathered up and
saved from the mould which gathers
alike upon the memories of men and
brates. One of these will illustrate
his high qualities. In those days 1705
he was hired out to a man by the
name of Evans, earning the sum of
$15 per year for his owner. Evans
took jobs of clearing land, and Justin
was his only "team." Pulling matches
were in vogue in that portion of the
Green Mountain State, and on one oc
casion several 1,203 pound horses were
hitched singly to a big pino log which
was wanted in a mill ten rods distant;
but none of them could make it budge
an inch. Evans came home in the
evening, when he heard of the discom
fiture of the big horses. He offered at
once to bet a gallon of rum that his
"colt" could draw the log to the mill at
three pulls. The bet was taken; and
after a drink all around, the crow-d
went out to see the sport,- by the dim
light of a lantern. After hitching
Justin to the log, Evans told three of
the men to get upon it and ride. They
did so, and the little horse was told to
start. At the word he started, draw
ing the log halfway to the mill before
he was stopped. Taking breath a mo
ment, the next pull saw this tremen
dous load deposited on the log-way,
and his owner had won his gallon of
rum. A few days
another gallon in
afterward he won
a race of eighty
But the most remarkable character
istic of this wonderful horse 4i the
preservation rind full development of
his fine qualities in all the successive
generations of his descendants down
to the present daj In this respect the
world knows not his equal. "Crossed
with twenty families, his blood domi
nates over all." This stock is now
known throughout the world, and it
has made the fortunes of great num
bers of men, and added millions of
dollars of wealth to the country es
pecially benefitting Xew Hampshire
and Vermont, where Justin Morgan
was owned. Celebrated horses de
scended lineally from him are now
found everywhere; and, to come down
a moment to statistics, it has been as
certained that 14 have trotted better
than a mile in 2:2G; 40 better than
2:33: 49 better than 2:30, and 3 in 2:30.
The descendants of no othe horse
have such a record.
And yet, thi3 founder of a race
this kingly horse, which enjoys such a
surpassing posthumous fame was
reared and owned all his life by plain
country people, who valued him chief
ly for his ability to do hard work. lie
was never luxuriously cared for, and
only knew tho treatment bestowed
upon ordinary work horses. His won
derful sagacity and docility seemed due
more to his inherent qualities than to
any systematic train. He was oneo
sold for $100, and bird out to work a
whole year for $15 during which
time he helped his master build "log
heaps." - He lived to be 23 years of age,
and his death in 1S21 was a sad one.
Instead of tender, considerate care, af
ter his life of usefulness, he was turn
ed out to run loose in an open barn
yard, in the inclemency of a Vermont
winter. In the course of the winter
he was kicked by another hor3e in the
flank; inflamation set in, and this 8100
horse very soon died. Before being
hurt he was perfectly sound and free
from blemish of any kind Persons
who saw him in 1820 describe him as
possessed of almost youthful health
and vigor. Neither rtge nor revere la
bor had sapped hi3 vigor or broken his
constitution. His eye was bright, his
step firm and elastic, and his natural
At a weekly meeting a straight-laced
and most exemplary deacon submitted
a report in writing of the destitute
widows who stood in need of assistance
from the congregation. "Are you sure,
deacon," asked another sober brother,
"that -yon have - embraced all the
widows V He said he believed he had.
THE FURXAS-IIEEALD SUIT..
Knowing his entire innocence of the
charge made against him, Gov. Furnas
commenced the libol suit against the
Omaha Herald, not only to vindicate
his private character, but for the com
mon good of society. It was com
menced at the only place this charac
ter of suit could bo brought, with no
expectation of being forced to trial in
that county, with the then and present
t -surroundings. At first opportunity,
change ef venue was asked, not from
the judicial district, but merely to an
adjoining county in tho same district.
This, we. submit, tnas due the case, un
der circumstances, without reference
to either of the contending parties as
individuals. The reasons given for
thus seeking a change of venue were:
That Omaha was the home of the de
fendants, who were publishers and ed
itors of a daily newspaper, in Which
capacity tliey have been persistent and
constant in creating a public opinion
purposely prejudicial to Gov. Furnas
by the publication of numerous edito
rials and depositions taken solely in
the intertst of the Herald. Omaha is
the place where the alleged crime i3
said to have occurred, and out of which
has grown great and prevailing excite
ment. Furnas resided in another por
tion of the State, between which locali
ties it is Well known there has, for
many years, existed a bitter local feud.
Under these circumstances it was un
reasonable to believe, other than that
intelligent men in Omaha, competent
to sit on a jury having under consid
eration a case of this magnitude, were
either unfavorably prejudiced, or had
read, formed and expressed an opinion,
which, under court rulings, disqualified
them for such position, and thus de
prived the case of an intelligent jury.
Again, it was, and is still believed, not
only by Gov. Furnas, but by his friends,
that such were and are the social and
political relations existing between the
Herald and the court officers having
principally in charge the making up
and handling of tho jury,-that there
was, and is, good 'grounds for a belief
that partiality would be exercised in
favor of the Herald and against Fur
nas. Under all these circumstances
a change of veuuo was denied, trial was
had, and the result what every intelli
gent eye-witness predicted, no ver
dict for either party. 1 The whole pro
ceedings of tho trial only confirmed the
truthfulness of the reasons given ask
ing for a change of venue a3 to facts
and circumstaflces. A trial under
such surroundings and circumstances
was the merest farce in form of law.
All unbiased men who witnessed the
trial agree in this. opinion. Applica
tion was made a second time for change
of venue, reiterating former reasons
given, together with glaring and dis
graceful facts which occurred during
trial and observable even to the morti
fication of the HeraMs friends, prejudi
cial to Gov. Furnas. Chango of venue
even under all these circumstances,
was again denied.
From the fact that in this State
there is no Statuatory regulation gov
erning in the matter of change of ve
nue, all being entirely within the dis
cretion of the judge, and therefore ap
peal in exceptions being of no avail,
and being satisfied that another trial
in Omaha, under such surroundings
and circumstances as have been nar
rated, would only be the more ridicu
lously and shamefully farcial, with no
earthly hope of securing justice, Gov.
Furnas ha3 ordered the case dismissed.
"We are fully satisfied with Gov.
Furnas' vindication from the testimo

TliE CALIFORNIA FLYER.
Occident's Wonderful Trot of a 3Iile In
From the San Fiancisco Chronicle.
San Fp.ancisco, Sept. 18.
It was announced, some time ago,
that ex-Governor Stanford's horse Oc
cident would be entered for the $2,000
plate offered by the society for any
horse that would beat the best time
ever raada in the State 2:1734 by
Goldsmith Maid. A general hop has
existed that he would , succeed in ac
complishing . the great feat, .mingled
with a great deal of doubt as to the
result. . : : -. . . .
Yesiferday morning it was reported
that the horse would not go for the
plate, but merely be speeded over the
track, so as to satisfy in some measure
the desires of those who had gathered
to see his pacel Happily, however,
the report proved unfounded, and ev
erybody was on the qui vive when it
was aonounced from the judges' stand
that Occident was entered for tho plate
and would make an effort to mark
down the time recorded for the best
trotting over a California track. At
3:30 o'clock. - -
OCCIDENT APPEARED ON THE TRACK
and wa3 greeted by a welcoming shout.
He looked well, and murmurs of ad
miration were heard from nearly all of
the 7,000 or S.GOtf people who had been
drawn together by the magic of his
name. The ladie3 alLsmiled sweetly
upon him ; and the men who had been
filled with doubt regarding the issue of
tho great effort of his life now took
note of his" fine appearance, and began
to hope that, aftr all, he might give
warranty in public to tho splendid
promise of his private trials. His
young driver, George Tennent. held
the reins quietly, and no sign of lack
of confidence was to be found it: ICok
or act of his. Gov. Stanford was in
the reporters' stand, little anxious, of
course, but hopeful of the horse's suc
cess. He said that Occident could cer
tainly beat 2:17, but it was possible
that he would not bo in condition to
do it in thi3 trial. As Occident, with
clock-like motion, trotted down the
track, in front of the grand stand, he
was loudly cheered by thousands of
voices. Innumerable stop-watches
were produced; there was jostling and
skirmishing for the positions from
which the best view of the track could
be obtained; the cheers died away into
silence and then all waited nervously
for tho event. Tho running horse,
Brown Dick, was brought out to keep
him company, and: after a little pre
" TIIE BELL WAS TArrED,
and Occident shot past the score, Brown
Dick some distance behind. Tennent
handled the horse in handsome style,
and the eager crowd breathlessly
watched the little bay beauty as he
went "striding onward" to the quarter-
pole. With honest, faultless trotting
he passed the pole in 30 seconds,
without apparent exertion, and went
on without effort, increased his speed
irilhe second quarter 1. seconds, pass
ing the half-mile pole in 1 :10t' Ten
nent holding hard and Brown Dick
gallantly following on. " On the third
quarter, Tennent put. him down to his
work, and the pace was increased, the
far turn being rounded in rapid fash
ion, and -the noble horse swung into
the home stretch at a terrific gait. As
he came tearing down the long stretch
not an exclamation was heard; but
when he passed under the line, without
having made a skip or a break, in
TIIE WOXDERFCX. TnrE
of 2:lGi. the suppressed excitement
of tho vast concourse found vent in
long and ringing shouts in honor of
the great triumph of the gallant little
favorite of California. For sometime
wild and almost ludicrous enthusiasm
held icssesRion of the crowd, mani
fested by repeated cheers, waving of
handkerchiefs and hats, and all man
ner of exhibitions of delight. The
throng crowded the quarter-stretch,
waiting the authoriiive announcement
of the time made by the little flyer;
and when the figures were hung but on
the black-board, and it was announced
from the judges' stand that Occident
had made the best time on record in
the annals of the California turf, and
won the plate, the enthusiasm broke
out .again, and the vast throng, not
forgetting Stanford in their admira
tion of Occident, cheered the Governor
heartily, till that well-pleased gentle
man advanced to the front of the
stand and bowed his acknowledgment
of the compliment. Tor was tho dri
ver forgotten, for a crowd gathered
around him and congratulated hinl on
the careful and successful manner in
which he had held the reins behind the
A rLEASANT WIND-L'P.
Governor Stanford, whose gratifica
tion at the triumph of his horse was
exhibited without attempt at conceal
ment, at once came to tho judges' stand
and presented the valuable plate to the
society, with the understanding that it
should bo put up each succeeding year
for competition until the time just
made by Occident should be beaten.
This generous act was announced from
the stand, and wa3 greeted with much
After awhile, at the solicitation of
many persons on the course, Occident
was again speeded around tho track.
He went handsomely to tho quarter
pole in So VX seconds, and reached the
half mile pole in 1:09 , one second
less than his time in the first trial ; and
it was believed that ho was going to
even more remarkable speed before he
reached the score. On the third quar
ter he was trotting splendidly, going
along at an extraordinary gait, but un
fortunately, to the regret of tho con
course which was watching his progress
down the home-stretch with the deep
est interest, he broke, about 200 yards
above the distance fla.?. where an ex
cited crowd were shouting hoarsely
and exultingly. Before he could be
got down to square trotting again,
some seconds elapsed ; but even tvs it
w?.s, he parsed under the score in the
very good time of 2:16
Gov. Stanford may well be congrat
ulated upon the ownership of such a
splendid horse a3 Occident approved
himself Wednesday, and the whole
State will come in for a share of tho
congratulation, inasmuch as the event
cannot fail to add greatly to the al
ready widespread reputation of Cali
fornia as a producer of fast stock.
Occident has, by this brilliant perform
ance, placed himself at the head of
the trotting turf, side by side with
Goldsmith Maid, whose best time he
has equalled. II is future, under care
ful training, is brilliant, and we may
reasonably hope that he will yet in
crease tho speed which seems to U3 so
extraordinary now, in view of his
pedigree, the hard labor he has been
put through in past years and his in
experience on the racing .turf.. .
Special Dispatch to the St. Louis Globe.
Washington, OctoH-r 23.
The TrcsiJcnt lias been consulting
the members of his cabinet respecting
tho contents of his message to Con
gress, especially cn financial topics,
which will occupy a largo portion of
the document. 1I has also leen in
consultation with leading bankers and
business men, in tlio hope of obtaining
the average public sentiment as to the
advisability of a speedy return to Fie
cie payment. He has been considering
all the various plans for resumption
suggested in debates in the Senate and
House during the last Congress. Sen
ator Morton, while here, urged him to
adopt the plan which he (Morton) rec
ommended some tima ago, which was
to name a day, n t more than one your
distant, when resumption would take
place. The President has heard sug
gestions from all quarters and en all
sides of -the question, but ho h.T3 not
intimated what course ho would pur
sue in liis message. His friends con
tend, however, that lie will take ground
in favor of early resumption.
TROUBLE FOR TIIE RANKS.
National Bank men are getting
alarmed at tho prospects for war upon
the National Banking system, to be
predicated upon the conduct of these
institutions during :he recent panh?.
It is said that tho Democratic Mem
bers and Senators will unite in an ef
fort to abolish tho National banking
system entirely, and substitute green
backs for national bank currency. A
prominent Western Senator has com
mitted himself to a project in this di
rection which goes so far as to in2re.;.-;e
the volume of paper money to a thous
and millions, and ho argues that tho
plan can bo so guarded us to prevent
the possibility of future panics, and at
the sarno time to keep the gold premi
um merely nominal.
" A strong effort is being made to re
move Senator Carpenter from the io
sition of President pro tern, of the Sen
ate, to which he was chosen just be
fore the adjournment of that body last
spring. The friends of Senator Mor
ton are pushing him for the place, but
Mr. Anthonj', of Rhode Island, will
probably get it if any change i3 made.
KEN A TOR STEWART.
There are various ruiSors about the
cause of the reported "suspension" of
Senator Stewart; o'f Nevada. It is
known that he has suddenly ceased the
expenditure of money on the palatial
residence he is erecting here. He is
largely interested in mining stocks and
other securities which have suffered
by tho panic, and he is also a large
shareholder in the Nortiiern Pacific
Strong efforts have been mado to
draw Andy Johnson out on tho mat
ter of Mrs. Surratt's execution, but he
declines to be interviewed uutil he can
have an official investigation. In pri
vate conversation he protests that lie
knew very little about the eifurt3 made
for the unfortunate woman's reprieve
or commutation. Immediately after
the trial a petition in her favor was
sent to him, but he did not feel like
extending Executive clemency. Sub
sequently, he says, Preston King and
others interfered to prevent petitions
from reaching him; aad on the morn
ing of the execution Mr. King positive
ly prohibited Mrs. Surratt's daughter
from seeing him on an errand of mer
cy. It will be remembered that soon
aftor this Mr-. King committed suicide
by drowning in tho North river.
Johnson feels very sore on this sub
ject, although he avows bis ability to
make a good record for himself when
the subject is officially investigated.
Not long ago a country slcre, in
close proximity to tho city of New Or
leans, had one or two boxes of torpe
does, that are about the size of a wren's
egg, left over from its holiday stock.
In rearranging the shelves one of the
little boxes was opened and all St3 eon
tents given away, except one single
torpedo, - which, resembling a "bird's
egg" candy, a3 the colort d folks call
them, was left on the ecu nter. A wise
looking old negro rode, up to the store
on a malkdou.'vJookiiig hor.se' about 9
o'eiock at night. He hitched his "crit
ter," and came into the store alter a
dram. While the clerk wa3 pouring
th;3 out, old grizzly heal, thinking
that where even the smallest things
are available, opportunities should not
be lost, slid his horny hand over that
