KA HERALD ,
The State Convention.
The Republican State Convention
will be held at Lincoln, September 1st,
at three p. m. MacMvrpmy.
One of the most absurd propositions
put forward by the democracy "is that
the election of Hancock means the su
premacy of the civil over the military
authority. Absurd, because their whole
record from ante-bellum days to the
last riot in Omaha, shows that they
invaiiably called for and iised troops,
when it would aid their side; invaria
bly wero the first to talk of a resort to
arms in every difference of opinion,
from the days of Calhoun to the era of
Kansas border ruffianism. From the
inception of the Rebellion to the lat
est Xu-Klux deviltry south, they have
always shown an aptness to override
civil law by brute force and military
strength, that has been unequalled by
any other party in existence, either in
this or any civilized country in Eu
rope. - .
Grant says: "Hancock's record is
good, but the record of the party that
nominates him is bad I"
This is the party record on military
rule. What is Hancock's? Order No.
40, instead of placing the civil over the
military.simply proposed to undo what
Congress, the only legitimate civil au
thority, had ordered, and under the
plea of States' rights nullify all proper
governmental civil action, and replace
it with the power of the military, act
ing under so-called State law. Han
cock was sent to Louisiana for that,
and nothing else, and was a willing
tool to help undo all reconstruction, i.e.
all civil acts of the administration of
Hancock's letter to Sherman, offer
ing to recognize Tildeu. should he even
take the oath of office in New York,
and, of course, back him up by the
troops under his command, is certain
ly no very conclusive evidence that he
valued the civil arm of government
above the military; but rather that he
proposed to use the military force, ac
cidentally at his command, to override
the real civil power, and thus let might
make right. The undoubted thought,
atone time, of a number cf Major
Generals in the army, that they cotld
march on Washington, overthrow Lin
eolu and the Cabinet, and form a semi
southern military government, s ivois
but little of respect for civil law over
military; and of this scheme Hancock
seems to have had knowledge, and if
not active, has never to this day pro
tested against its great wrong and
overwhelming treachery. The devil
seems to have more respect for the
civil law than either the democracy or
its chosen leader.

We copy the following from a re

He was a very industrious student,
and was somewhat remarkable for his
perseverance in the pursuit of knowl
edge where others would have given
up in despair. When he first came here
he was accompanied by Chas. D. Wil

the state geologist of Illinois. Both
Mr. Wilber and young Garfield had
previously had some preliminary cor
respondence with Dr. Hopkins, then
president of the college, and it was on
account of the encouragement receiv

kins. that ne decided to enter Williams
To Mr. Wilber, however, Garfield was
indebted more tlmn to any other man
for an early lift in tho pursuit of
knowledge. Mr. Wilber became inter
ested in the progressive youth on ac
t-ount of the choice and effective lan
gunge which he had often heard him
use, when talking with his rough and
illilenite ni;ites on th( C;ll):l boat.. He
reeoariized the ceiiim and intelligence
of ihe ld. and extended the needed en
couragement at a time when it seems
to have been quite effective.

The second race was the most im

ing. It was for special purse of 1,000,
between Maud S. and Trinket SC50 to
first, and $350 to second. Maud S.
won in three straight heat3. Maud
had the race all her own way, win

S. carried Trinket to a break at the
quarter pole, and made the first half
in 1 :03. Around tho turn she slack
ened up and made the mile in 2:21,
easily beating Trinket. All interest
was centered in Maud S., who made
the first quarter iu 33 seconds, the half

she received an ovation as she stepped

Ed. Hekald: I see in your paper
of July 8th, a few lines from ascribler
of this place, in which the writer says
that "the school directors are opposed
to the Order of Good Templars, and
hare taken the authority upon them
selves to forbid them the use of-the
school house." I would just say that
in regard to their being opposed to the
order, that it is false, and the writer,
if he knows anything about the school
board, should know better than to
make such assertions through the pub
lic prints; because one of the members
of the school board is a member of the
Order"of Good Templars, and the oth
er two aro sober men and good citizens.
But what the board is opposed to, is
tho manner in which the lodge is con
ducted. They thinrt there is too much
intemperance ior a little temperance.
It is publicly known that there have
been several cases f drunkenness
among the members of tho lodge with
in the last few years. 1 do not wish to
be understood that many members are
intemperate. Far from it; for there
are some among them as moral and
good Christians as there are anywhere.
But they are in the minority; and tho
young and giddy elect their officers
and run the machine, when it should
be entrusted to older heads.
Hoping I mav not have occasion to
refer to the matter again, I sign my
name Scribbler. No. 2.
Luella Notes. .
July 20, 1880.
Ed. Herald: Harvest is over, and
small grain promises a fair yield. Corn
looks well; oarly potatoes nearly a
failure; later planting look more prom
ising. John Clark and Frank McKay found
land on the Niobrara river that suited
them, and both took homesteads. D.
D. Johnson has sold the Mulford place

The political pot begins to simmer
in this vicinity. We coucur with the
Herald in saying that the coming
election will be a very important one.
In view of this fact, we hope the con
vention for nominations will be called
early, giving plenty ot.time for a full,
fair and thorough canvass. We are of
the opinion that if more time were
given between the call for primaries
and the time of holding them.it would
give better satisfaction. It would give
no chance for complaints about "snap
We hope the great race for the
White House (which of late years
means but little more thaa a lace for
public patronage an I political spoils)
will not divert the minds of the people
from questions that interest them
more directly, as Nebraska is not a
doubtful State, but that they will give
more attention to the selection and
electing of candidates for the several
important offices to be filled this fall.
We are in favor of selecting those who

13 disappointing. The strcetsaro dusty
and narrow, and the effect of the shab
by bouses and dilapidated walls is
rather that of a collection of villages
huddled together than of a large and
important city. Our first call was
made at an excellent hotel kept by a
Greek. Its court-yards with foun
tains playinor aint large orange trees
shadowing the whole place, looked so
enticing, its myrtles and jessamines
and marble floors so cool, and its bed
rooms so clean and comfortable, that
we felt quite sorrv it had not been
arranged that we should stay"thcre,in
stead of pitching our tents in one of
the "far-famed gardens of Damascus.
From the hotel we made . a. progress
through the picture bazars. Here
there are covered-in buildings, swarm
ing with people in every variety of
oriental costumes. Turks, Syrians,
Maronitcs and Druses of the town jos
tle each other. Now a Bedouin of the
desert rides by on a beautiful Arab
mare, with his long-painted lance at
rest, followed by other Bedouins on
foot and in rags, unsuccessful robbers,
possibly. Friday is the Mohammedan
Sabbath, and they make it market day
as well, so the Bedouins of the desert
who come from long distances may
combine their temporal and spiritual
duties comfortably and do their mar
keting and go to the mosque on tho
6amcda. The streets were even more
crowded than last night, with varied
and wonderful costumes, 60 closely
packed that it was difficult to make
one's way through them. In the cor
ner stood a Bedouin Anauzeh, of the
tribes from near Palmyra, bargaining
for a cane to make a spear, his goat's
hair cloak, with its broad black and
white stripes, hanging from his stal
wart shoulders. Another of the tribe
hard by seemed to be doing his best to
sell his horse, while others again rode
by with an abstracted air, the graceful
mares which they bestrode often fol
lowed by whinnying foals.
Numismatics Reviving. V
Phil ulelpliia Record.
The coin collectors are among the in
dividuals who realize the impulse of
improved times. They report that tho
"craze for coins" has revived to a won
derful extent. Old numismatics are
taking more interest in their hobbies,
new ones arc into the field, and, as a
result, coins are growing scarce and
prices daily tending upward. Among
the coins for which there is now great
dcinaud are the dimes, quarter dollars
and half dollars of 187'J. Only $15,
000 of these coins were issutl from tho
mint, whereas the average issue of
previous years has been larger. Col.
lectors arc now paying 75 cents for the
half dollar ; 35 cents lor the quarters
and 25 cents for the dimes ot 187'J,
while the figures obtained by the deal
ers from their private customers aro
nearly 25 per cent in advauce of buy
E. Mason, Jr., a numismatist of this
city has a Washington silver dollar of
17'Jvi, which is believed to be the only
one in the country, and to which a
history is attached.
When Washington was in the height
of his popularity it was proposed to
place his oust upon tho coinage. This
was done in some silver and copper
issues of 17yi-'y2 ; but Washington ob
jected so vigorously that the coins
were withdrawn from circulation.
Again in 17y5 it was proposed to pla:c
his head upon the dollars, but once
more he objected, and the idea was not
ersistcd in. Two or three coins were
owever, struck otf, aud the one just
now turned up is of the number.
The obverse has a military bust of
Washington, lacing left, surrounded
by the legend, "Washington, Presi
dent," and the date 17'Jti. The head is
surrounded with a laurel wreath. Ou
the reverse is a spread eagle, surround
ed by fifteen stars. A broad milling
exton Is around the margin. The ob
verse has the. name "Birch" iu very
small letters beneath the head. Thhj
was the designer.
The Secret of It.
Comparatively few men show their
real disposition to the girls thev select
as life-companions, and the bride who
has formed her own i leal is often dis
enchanted durinrr the honeymoon the
most trving period of married life.
This is the secret of ninny unhappy
marriages: the husband is not nearly
as devoted as was the lover; and per
haps his tastes do not harmoniac with
those of his wife. The fate is horrible
which a pure and faithful girl may en
dure by encountering in him 'whom
she marries, not mere actual cruelty or
injury, but stupid incompetence to un
derstand a woman's needs, dull forget
fulness of the dailv graces of life, and
oblivion of the fact that while men
have the world women have only their
homo. These grossnesses of masculine
ingratitude do not, indeed, often lead
to visible catastrophe, nor grow into
Mich absolute tyrany. but they equal
ly tend that way. Thev drag down a
wife's'soul to the point where" she
must, despair ; they change the sub
lime meaning of marriage to vulgarity
and weariness ; they spoil tho chance
of that best and finest of all education
which each man obtains who wins a
reasonably good woman for his com
panion and they completely destroy
any hope of domestic happiness. What
right has a man to expect happiness in
a homo who brings no sunshine into
it ? What right has he to look for the
graces and refinements of early love
when he violates them by rough
speech, ill manners, and the disregard
of little things upon which the self
respect of a wife is built and mail)
taincd? The cynic who raiU at mar
ringe is generally one and tha same
with tho thoughtless egotist who
flings into the presence of his wife
careless, stubborn and sour-tempered,
though he never went to his fiancee
except on his best behavior.
Husbands, preserve after marriage
those pleasant manners, thoughtful
carc3,. attentions, and careful ways
which contributed so much to win the
woman of your choice ; they constitute
the true secret of happiness.
Considerable light has been thrown
on the cause of the fac ility with which
the Nihilists have boon able to provide
themselves with passports, and thus
to travel about Russia at pleasure. An
official employed as courier in the
Ministry of Domains, has, it has been
discovered, been instrumental with the
assistance of his wife and sou, in pro
curing no fewer than 14,000 passports,
made out in false names, all within the
past eight years. It is estimated that
for his services in the matter he must
have pocketed large sums, as much as
,000 roubles having been found in
his possession, supposed to have been
mostly received as passport fees.
In 1436, Jean dc Grouchy, aided by
400 inhabitants, look Ilarfleur from
the English, who had held that town
for twenty years, Jean himself perish

on each anniversary of the recovery of
Ilarfleur, it has becu usual for the
Grouchy family to distribute 400
loaves of bread. Two years ago, tho
inhabitants in a sudden fit of patriot

fell more than four centuries ago, thus
showing that national gratitude may
waken up after a very long slumber.

comfort and genuineenjoyment, give
us the free, fresh air of the country.
To one who is an admirer of nature in
her best aspect, the country offers rare
opportunity for research and study.
Tho botanist here has spread before
him subjects for " investigation and
study in the greatest profusion, from
the tall, commanding forest trees to the
tiniest shrubs or flower which grows.
The naturalist here can study nature,
free from the many disadvantages
which are found elsewhere, for here
things are in their home, and free and
untrammeled, and can be studied in all
their varying aspects and conditions.
The habits, forms- and condition, of
birds cau be studied with the most
favorable opportunities of arriving at
just conclusions, while myriads of in
sects can be caught, impaled and pre
served, while their habits can be clear
ly defined. Each -and every branch
offers a life-time study to one who is a
born naturalist, and there is not the
least danger of ever exhausting the
subject, for it is as, exhaustions as na
ture herself. Look-what a wealth of
minerals are stored up for the use as
well as the study of man. and to trace
through long ages of time, the pro
cesses and the forces - which produced
these results is in itself a life-time

communion with nature. This long

Toints about. Welding.
Thc7ilacksmt'th und WhcelicrigJit, a
journal that ouqdit to know, says that
to obtain a good sound weld, tho fol
lowing points should be observed :
The senrf should, be sufficiently
larger than the finislwd side to permit
tho weld to be well drawn out after
weldiii'i". The joint surface of the scarf
should be slightly rounding, so that,
when the two pieces are placed to
gether to weld, there will be no air in
closed between them.. .
They should be heated in a clear firo
of bright and not gaseous coal. Thick
pieces should not be heated too quick
ly, or the interior metal will not be
brought up to the required tempera
ture. They should be frequently turn
ed in the fire, to insure uniformity of
temperature, and made as hot as pos
sible without burning them.
They should be withdrawn from the
fire occasionally, nnd sprinkled with
sand,which serves tocxclude the air from
the surface and prevent oxidation, and
at the snmo time cools the outer sur
face and thin cdares, giving the inter
ior metal and thicker parts time to be
come heated all through.
When the pieces are placed upon the
anvil to weld them, they should be
quickly cleaned with either a wire
brush or a piece pf wood made ragged
by having been hammered. The.scarfs
should be placed to well overlap each
other, and should .receive light and
quickly succeeding blows at first, and
heavier ones afterward.
As soon as the pieces are firmly join
ed, the hammer blows should be de
livered with a view to close the edges
of the scarf,' so that the joint of the
weld shall not show where the job it
Langdon W. Moore, the wonderfully-successful
bank robber, who made
$300,000 by breaking into the vault of
the Concord National bank, and after
ward lived in. sumptuous style at a
villa near Philladclphia, has at' hut
been convicted in Boston, and wn
tenced to sixteen years' imprisonment.
Hois not so much appalled by the
prospective durance, however, as by
the fact that there are several convicts
iu that prison .whom his disloyally
has sent there, and who have sworn, he
says, to murder him. He believes they
will keep their word, and begs to be
sent to some other prison, but his
prayer is not to be granted.
The Sovereign Count of Erbach-Er-bach,
who claims desccnt.from Char
lemagne's daughter Emilia and her
midnight lover, Egiuhard, has offered
his hand to a. gardener's daughter,
Fraulein Luck of ' Bessungen, near
Darmstadt. His Highness' imperial
ancestress, whose stone coffin, iu which
she and her lowly born consort were
interred together nearly eleven centu

castle of Erbach to the present day,
set her descendants an example, by her
self contracting a morganatic marriage,
which they have not proved remiss in
, .1 Fool Once More.
"For ten years my wife'was confined
to her bed with such a complication of
ailments that - no doctor could tell
what was the matter or cure her, and
I used up a small fortune in humbug
stuff. Six months ago I saw a U. S.
flag with Hop Bitters on it, and I
thought I would be a fool once more.
I tried it, but my folly proved to be
wisdom. Two bottles cured her, she is
now as well and strong as any man's
wife, and it cost me only two dollars.
