MOKE ADULT HOW TO 3IAKE AtiOOD
To the Patrons of Schools in Cass Co.
Dear Feiends- For a few mo
ments lend us your ears, while we
speak to you in regard to a matter of
great importance. Did you ever think
that then; i.s a great responsibility rest
ing upon you in regard to your child
as a scholar": Did you ever think that
you are responsible for your children's
acts in schoo!s? List you say you do
not believe this; well, wo will prove it
to you liy giving hero the following con
versation hel ween a teacher and one
of his patrons who came to scheol one
morning in high dudgeon because one
of his boys had been whipped.
- l'atmr. Mr. Teacher, why do you
punish my boy so much?
Teacher. I am obliged to do it in
order to make him obey the rules.
P. "Well, who is to blame if he does
not obey the rules ?
T. Well, Mr. Patron to tell tho plain
truth you are.
1'. How do you make, out that I am
tobiame? I send the boy to school,
and that is all I can do, if he breaks
the rules after he g.-ts here you are the
one to blame, not I.
T. Yes, that is just what you all
think, that after you have sent your
children to school your whole duty is
done, and give yoursclf-no farther con
cern about them ; and if t hey do not be
have at school that the teacher is to
blame. Now, Mr. Patron, I want to
ask you a few questions. Has your
t ov come home with any complaints
this term '?
P. Yes, a number of times.
T. Well what did you do when ho
began his complaints?
P. Why, at liist I only listened to
T. Did you do anything else?
P. Yes, I told him sometimes that
you ought not to punish him so much.
T. Did you tell him anything else?
P. Yes, I told him at last that if
you did not stop pounding him would
come up here and pound you.
T. And still yen had no intention of
doing it ?
1. No, I had no intention of doing
anything. I said what I did in a
thoughtless kind of a way to please the
boy, and to get rid of him, because I
haJ something else on my mind; but
after awhile his complaints got to be
of such a nature I thought I would
come and see you for I was clear out
T. There, Mr. Patron, you told the
whole story in that one word "Thought
less;" but your thoughtlessness does
not excuse you for neglecting your du
ty ; nor for doing what you ought not
to have done; and when you didn't tell
him what ho ought to do you neglect
ed your duty; and are culpable for
P. Well what ought I to have told
him to do?
T. You ought to hnve told hiia to
stop the very first complaint he began
to make; to go to school and obey the
rules; and if ha got a whipping at
school he would get another A lien he
P. How did I know but you were a
perfect tyrant and would impose u on
my boy if I told him such stuff as that?
T. You had better have your boy
imposed upon by a few tyrants than
to teach him to rebel against any au
thority; for these evil habits grow up
on children; and if ho rslols against
the authority of the school room when
he is a boy he will rebel against the
authority of the law when Le is a man.
Thus you see frieu.ls that this man
by listening to his boy encouraged him
in bis complaints, by siding with him
he encouraged him to rebel against
the rules of the school; and by making
that thoughtless threat made his boy
think ho was all light and the teacher
all wrong; thus encouraging him on
in his rebellion in consequence of which
he had to be severely punished; and all
because of the thoughtlessness of his
Once more, friends and parents, it is
your duty to think; and you will be
held accountable on the last day for
not thinking. More anon.
Tlie Transportation OieHtion.
Fditot. Herald: Our greenback
friends, in the hist campaign, had
much to say about hard times and low
prices for grain, and claimed it was
the result of an insufficiency of circu
lating medium. I think they were
wrong in their claims, as there are
millions of money unemployed in the
country, but the fact remains that
prices are so low as to bo unremunc-r-ative
to the producer, and indicate a
state of affairs that should be remedied
The question that interests the pro
ducer of tho west more than any other
is. how shall I obtain reasonable prices
for my products. I answer, there are
two ways. First, by building up home
manufactures, and, second, by cheapen
ing cost of transportation.
The first would be a remedy of slow
growth, but is one which I hope the
people of this State will ever keep in
The second it seems to mo ought to
be the question of the hour.
The question of transportation is a
vital one for us, as most of our grain
is shipped from the State, and when it
costs one bushel of wheat to place
another one on the market it does not
need much figuring to convince me
that wc are paying too much for trans
portation. We have railroad facilities it is true,
but mo3t of them were built when
money was cheap and wages high, nom
inally, so that the nominal capital
which they represent, -and upon which
they naturally wish to pay dividends is
enormously more than they would cost
if built now.
In addition to this the stock of some
of them is watered and there seems to
be a tendency to do v. way with legiti
mate competition by ujeans of pooling
All this is only natural, and what
we would expect from business men,
but producers do not enjoy the results
as indicated iu their business, and it is
but natural I hey should seek some
means of relief, and the question recurs1
what shall it be?
1 answer that a double track freight
railway from the Missouri river to the
Seaboard, built and operated by the
Government, is the only practicable so
lution of the question which occurs to
ue, I am aware that there is a com
pany organized to build such a railroad,
which asks subsidy from the govern
ment and promises fairly, but I fear
that would only add another member
to the pool.
Upon the other hand a road operat
ed by the government, and paying a
fair interest on its cost, could not be
amalgamated in any pooling arrange
ments, and would teach railroad com
panies that their property has depreci
ated iu the last ten years as well as the
other property of the country, and that
they must recognize that fact and be
satisfied with dividends upon actual
worth instead of nominal cost.
I fun aware that there are serious ob
jections to the government taking such
action as indicated, but it seems to mo
something must be dona in this matter,
and I know of no more promising rem
edy. Tlie limits of this article will not
admit of long discussion, as agitation
upon the subject is an essential prelim
inary to action.
Home, Nov. 20 Passanante, the
would-be. assassin of King Humbert,
manifested the most perfect unconcern
and brutal self-assurance at his pre
liminary examination. When the
magistrate expressed horror at the
deed, the prisoner said, " it seems.to me
you are getting too excited." On be
ing asked if he had not observed that
the people would have torn him to
pieces but for the police, he replied:
" The people are fools. They always
act that way."
To a question whether ho had in
tended to kill the King, or merely
wound him, ho answered: "My in
tention was to finish him." He said
he was neither an Internationalist or
Socialist; that he did not know the
meaning of those words. lie failed,
however, to satisfactorily account for
the Internationalist work found in his
possession. The King will confer the
collar of the Annunzeatia upon Signor
London, Nov. 20. Appalling dis
tress and dcSt itution exists among tne
mechanics and laborers of Sheffield, in
consequence of business depression.
Hundreds exist in tenements without
clothing or furniture all sold or
pawned to procure food. I hey are
without fuel and dependent upon the
charity of their neighbors. The May
or has called a public meeting to de
vise measures of relief.
Montreal, Nov. 21. His excellen
cy the Marquis of Lorno will be re
ceived at .Tuques Cartier square and an
aidress of welcome will be delivered
at the city hall. Three arches have
been erected. There will be no pro
cession. A welcome by thousands of
citizens lining the streets is considered
sufficient. Lands of music will be
stationed at prominent points. The
citizens will illuminate and make the
initial entry of his excellency one of
the grandest affairs ever witnessed in
CniCAGO, Nov. 21. A midnight ca
blegram, has just been, received by
George M. Pullman, from the Ameri
can consul at Lisbon, Portugal, stating
that Charles W. Angell, the defaulting
secretary of the Pullman Palace Car
Company, has been arrested there and
that .'530,000 of the money taken by
him have been found on his person.
It is believed there will be little dif
ficulty in securing his extradition.
Sullivan, Ind., Nov. 21. A terri
ble explosion occurred at the Sullivan
coal mine at this place to-day. The
explosion was caused by tho ignition
of the lamn llames with the gas, and a
terrific velocity was mkhd by the fact
of there bekg eight kegs of powder
below. There were thirty men in the
mine at the time. The scone beggars
There were thirteen killed outright,
eight or ten wounded, and many oth
ers are suffering so from suffocation
that their lives are hanging by a thread.
The excitement is so great that it is
impossible at this time to get the
names of the unfortunates. Two of
the proprietors are known to be killed.
From Hoht. (. IngersoU's Speech at
rittsic Hall, Hostou.
There should be labor and food for
all. We invent; wo take advantage of
the forces of nature; we enslave the
wind and the waves; we put shackles
upon the unseen powers and chain the
energy that wheels tho world. These
slaves should release from bondage all
the children of men.
By invontion, by labor -that is to
say, by working and thinking we will
compel prosperity to dwell with us.
Do not imagine that wealth can be
created by law. Do not fr a moment
believe that paper can bo changed to
gold by the fiat of Congress,
Do not preach the heresy that you
can keep a promise by making another
in its place that is never to bo kept.
Do not teach the poor that the rich
have conspired to trample them into
Toll the working men that they are
in the majority ; that they can make
and execute the laws.
Tell them that since 1373 the employ -ers'have
suffered about as much as tl e
Tell them that the people who have
the power to make the laws should
never resort to violence. Tell them
never to envy the successful. Tell the
rich to be extravagant and the poor to
Ttll every man to use hi3 best efforts
to get him a home. Without a home,
without some one to love, life and
country are meaningless words. Upon
the face of tho patriot must have fall
en the firelight of home.
Tell tho people that they must have
honest money, so that when a man has
a little laid by for wife and child, it
will comfort him even in death, so
that he will feel that he leaves some
thing for bread, something that, in
some faint degree, will tjike his place;
that ha has loft the coined toil of his
hands to work for the loved when lie
Tell your representatives in Congress
to improve our rivers and harbois; to
release our transcontinental commerce
from the grasp of monopoly; to open
all our territories, and to build up oi r
trade with the wholo world.
Tell them not to issue a dollar of fir.t
paper; but to redeem every promise
tho nation has made.
If fiat money is ever issued it will be
worthless, for the folly that would is

Tell them to put their trust in work.
Debts can be created by law, but they
must be paid for by labor.
Tell them that fiat "money" is mad

"Almost Come to IJelieve."
We understand the 11. & M. railroad
is giving substantial aid to the settlers
along that line who have suffered se
vere losses from prairie fires. Such ac
tion is commendal.le but surprising.
We had almost tome to believe that
corporations were incapable of gener
ous deeds. Fremont Herald.
There are a great many people, like
the writer of the abovt, who have "al
most come to believe that corporations
are incapable of generous deeds," with
out knowing exactly why they have
come thus to believe. And with scarce
ly an exception the howl has emanated
from men wno were trying to get into
office or possess themselves of power
ou the strength of a prejudice against
"soulless corporations." These shys
ters have kept up the howl until many
honest and well meaning people have
come to believe just as the local editor
of the Herald says he "had come almost
Now, without championing any
body's cause, we would like to inquire
of the editor from whom we have quo
ted, if he did not hear of the donation
of 6-uD made by the Union Pacific
company to the families of the firemen
who lost their lives at the burning of
the Grand Central ? If he never heard
that Sidney Dillon, Jay Gould and the
Union Pacific company each gave five
thousand dollars for the relief of the
grasshoppered settlers along the line
of the road? If lie never heard of the
order of Superintendent Clark to agents
along the line of his road, directing
them to sell coal to graashoppeiad and
destitute settlers at the exact cost to
the company of laying it down, and in
extreme cases to deliver it gratis dur
ing a certaia period? If ho, never
hTard that the transportation of sup
plies over the Union Pacific road in
tended for "grasshopper sufferers"
amounted in the aggregate to sixty
thousand dollars? If ho never heard
that at Cheyenne, Laramie and other
points ou the western end of the road
the company have erected comfortable,
ye-, elegant cottages, which are rented
to employees for a mere nominal ren
taljust enough t- keep them In re
pair? If he never heard that the Un
ion Pacific railroad company furnishes
coal to employees for three dolkvrs less
per ton than other peple can buy it for
of dealers? If he never heard that du
ring the winters of ISTo, 4, 5 and 0, Su
periniendei't Clark issued orders to Di
vision superintendents to direct road
masters to employ actual settlers in
need of employment on the track work,
in preference to the . iloating section

Tho. Tanner in Politics.
It is safe to say that at no previous
time have the farmers of the country
been more thoroughly awakened to the
living questions of the day and to all
matters concerning themselves than
at present. They are thinking and
doing for themselves, and have cut
away from the political demagogues
that have of late years sought to feed
upon them and to ride into power by
their votes. More than this, our farm
ers have shown that out of all the
great and varied classes that compose
our nation they are among the most
steady and reliable, the least inclined
to adopt an- revolutionary measures,
and the main stay of any political par
ty to v.'hieh they may, iu large num
It was confidently asserted by the
greenback leaders, more especially by
the elemagogues, that the greenback
party would sweep the country this
fall, for the very reason that the farm
ers throughout the land were all rally
ing to the greenback standard. Put
the lite elections conclusively show
that they were mistaken in their cal
culations, and they also show just
where the farmets stood on the sh'e
of honest money and honest govern
ment. Nebraska, Kansas, and other
of the western states, wherein the ag
ricultural class is so largely in prepon
derance, have shown how little hold the
greenback idea had upon the people;
how very few of the farmers had been
inveigled into that party's ranks by
the seductive arts of the greenback
leaders who talked of t:ho ip nibuc
aiiel bettor times.
And, now, tha1" the fanners of this
and other states have remained so
steadfast in the ir principles, so faithf ui
in their old party afil'.iations, let the
leaders of the party in power, let all
who have been honored by 11. e farm
ers votes, see to it that sum-.! legisla
tion ii had for the betterment of their
condition. They are groaning under
exorbitant taxes, suffering from o r
taiit kinds of class legislation, hindered
by bad laws in the development and
upbuilding of our count.iy. and are, of
all classes, most in need of good,
wholsome legislation. We all directly
depend upon the farmer. If he thrives
we thrive, if he is in distress we suffer
likewise. No amount of legislation,
it is true, can bring back to the farmer,
in a few short months, the so-called
"good old times," for which he longs,
but nevertheless mir.h can be done to
lighten the burdens which he bears,
and thus make easier the journey
which ho and all the rost of us are
traveling, to reach that period when
all the disastrous effects of the over
speculation aiul fast living that fol
lowed the war shall have been over

The Sacramento Union relates the
following incident in the queer custc-Hfi
of the Chinese of feeding the dead: A
large number of Chines 10 or 12 wag
on loads went out to the City Ceme
tery yesterday to feed the spirits oi
their dead, taking with them a quantity
of roast pork and such other articles as
a well regulated spirit of the Chinese
persuasion is expected to relish. The
food was placed upon the graves, and
over each grave was poured a bottle of
whiskey spirit to spirit. A num" '4
tramps stood among the spectatorr -
seemed much grieved at the wastt
tho fluid. They made up their mind 3
to get even by securing the food after
the chinamen left, but the latter have
by experience grown smart, an el when
they had given the spirits a reasonable
length of time to secure a square meal,
they loaded tip the victuals and brought
them back to town.
Ilcrses ; ml dogs, when left to them
selves, invariably organize a fcrm o!
government which is severe in itsri
qiin eiiK'nts. and infra-Hows are the sig
nal of death. In South Am'-ric i, a sin
gle stallion, by an unknown process,
take sovereignly into his ow n keeping,
and maintains his dignity by the force
of his heels. When old, ami almost
blind, his honors are accorded to him
by a rising generation, i:cr are attempts
at usurpation presumed to be ever r-t-temptr-d,
while he is living. Dogs, on
the either hand, do not appear to ac
knowledge a king. They divide them
selves into sections, and district a city.
Each division keeps to his own territo
ry, and any attempt to trespass on Uie
grounds of the others invariably leads
to bloodshed, and not uiifreqvumtly to
