Tjy zis to sell you your lUuui The Pathetio Old Man. Pity the sorrows of a poor old man Whose trembling- limbs have borno him t your door. Whose mill of life grinds out tho coarsest bran! Whose bark of life lies stranded on the shore; Whose path of lifo winds through a desert waste. Whose cup of life is hitter to the taste, He has no fireside where a cheerful lijriit Shines on the faces of h:s children dear. He has no children where his fireside bright Fills nil his cttuttre with its gentle cheer; He has uo cottage where he lives alone. He begs you for a rest within your own. He has no lamp to wnd a gladsome beam Out from his window, as he nenrs his home! He has no window whence tho light may stream. When he returns resolved no more to roam : No nodding harvest fills his fertile field; He has no meadow any grain to yield." The housewife listened to the woe confessed. And bade him for aw hile forget to grieve; He took her kind advice, and took his rest. And took her gifts, and humbly took his leave. The housewife sitting in her easy cha:r, Thought on the man with so much pain to bear; Thought on his manner artless, mild and rare; Thought on the rich, with warmth and food to spare: Thought on the g.xxl they might, but would not share; Thought on the toil-worn frame, and silver hair; Thought on her 6ilvcr spoons, with anxious care; And thought ti go, and gaze a moment where fcho left thcin lust but could not find them there. Announcement of the Kepublican Na tional Committee Concerning' the Method of Call in- the next Kenubli van National Convention. A circular was issued by the Re publican National Co in in it tee, on Oc tober 8, 1880, calling attention to tho above subject. By Rule 10 of the Convention of June, 1880, it was provided that the Republican National Committee "shall, within the next twelve months, prescribe methods or rules for the se lection of delegates to the National Convention in conformity therewith, provided that such methods or rules shall include and secure to the several Congressional Districts in the United States the right to elect their own delegates to the National Convention." Preliminary to carrying into effect the foregoing rule, the National com mittee, on July 1, 1880, adopted the following: Resolved, That in order to aid this committee in carrying oat the instruc tions of the National Convention, to prescribe and announce within one year the methods or rules for electing delegates to the next National Con vention, request is hereby madtj for the transmission to the committee of plans and suggestions on the subject from any person prior to October 15, 1880. At a subsequent meeting the time for such transmission was extended to February 1, 1881; and it was also voted that a full meeting of the com mittee should be called, to consider the subject, some time, in March, 1881. Request was also made of the Re publicans to whom the circular was sent, and of all others, to forward any plans or suggestions they might de sire to make to the otticers of the committee before February 1, 1881. The following plans had been pre viously submitted tit the meeting of July 1. 1880: PLAN OF 3111. WILLIAM E. CIIANDLFIt OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. The Republican National Conven tion of 1884 shall consist of four dele-gates-at-large from each state and two deleeates from each Congressional District, each to be chosen at popular conventions in such manner as the Republicans of each state may determine, provided the delegates from each Congressional D. strict shall be the choice of the Republicans of that district. The conventions within the states for the election of delegates to the National Convention shall be held at least one month before the time for the meeting of the National Convent:on. Notices of contests may be given the National Committee, accompanied by full printed state ments of the grounds of contest, which shall also be made public; and prefer ence in the order of hearing and de termining contests shall be given by the convention according to the dates of the reception of such notices aud statements by the National Com mittee. PLAN OF MR. JOHN A. MARTIN OF KANSAS. That the Republican National Con vention for 1884 shall be composed as follows: First, each state shall be en titled to four delegates-at-large. Sec ond, each Congressional District shall be entitled to one delegate. Third, in addition to delegates-at-large, each state shall be entitled to representa tion in proportion to its Republican vote, that is. one delegate for every 12,000 Republican vote? polled for President in 1880, or fraction of over one half that number. The meeting of the National Com mittee having been called for Wash ington, March 5, 18S1, Messrs. William E. Chandler, Edward McPherson, and George C. Gorham were designated by the officers of the Committee as a committee t receive all suggestions that might be made, and to prepare and submit a plan at that meeting. 1881. cuxcl See wKctt SJVUTil'El'M.

At the new Clotliing f a p nflflVrO Mouse- next to (Darruth9, CSi U. IvIfiiESL The renewed attention of all Republi cans was called to the question ; and they were requested to communicate their views at any time before March 1. Editors of Republican papers were requested to publish the request and plans, and to discuss the subject edi torially. At the meeting- of the National Committee at the Arlington Hotel in Washington. March, 5, 1881, Messrs. Chandler and McPherson submitted the following plan: METHOD OF CALLING THE REPUBLI CAN NATIONAL CONVENTION OF 1884. The Republican National Conven tion of 1884, shall consist of four ..'elo-gaes-at-large from each state, and two delegates from each Congressional disti ict ;an additional delegate-at-large. for each Republican Senator in the then existing or next preceding con cress, and an additional district dele gate for each Republican Representa tive in such Congress, all to be chosen at popular conventions in such manner as the Republicans of each state may determine; provided the delegates from each Congressional District shall bo the choice of the Republicans of that district, in a con vention held within the district for that purpose. The conventions within the states for the election of delegates to the National Convention shall be held at least one month before the time of the meeting of the National Conven tion. Notices of contests may be given to the National Committee, ac companied by full printed statements of the grounds of contest, which shall also be made public; and preference in the order of hearing and determin ing contests shall be given by the con vention, according to the dates of the reception of such notices and state ments by the National Committee. Mr. (Jorham submitted the follow ing plan : METHOD OF CALLING TUK REPUBLI CAN CONVENTION OF 1884. The Republican National Conven tion of 1884 should consist of a num ber of delegates from each state equal to twice the number of its Sen ators and Representatives in Con gress; and the Republicans in each state, and others who will act wilh them, should direct the manner of choosing its delegates. Messrs. McPherson and Gorham were invited to participate in the dis cussion of this subject by the commit tee, and there was protracted debate cn the t o questions, first, of district representation, and second, of repre sentation based upon Republican votes. Owing to differences of opinion as to the method of working out the de tails of district representation, and as to representation uaseu upon repub lican votes, the following resolution was offered, and was unanimously adopted : ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE REP UB LI DAN COMMITTEE. liesolced, That in accordance with the order of the Republican National Convention of 1880, the call for the Convention of 1834 shall provide for securing to the several congressional districts the right to elect their own delegates to such national convention; "That the details of the methods or rules to be included in such call shall be determined at a future meeting of the committee, to be held within one year from this date; and that the whole subject bo now referred to a committee of five, who shall make re port at such meeting." Tho commit tee appointed under the foregoing resolution consists of Wm. E. Chand ler, of New Hampshire; Thomas C. Piatt, of New York ; John M. Forbes, of Massachusetts; John A. Martin, of 1 Kansas; Chauncey I. Filley, of Mis souri. It was also instructed to consider and report upon the subject of Terri torial and District of Columbia repre sentation in the National Convention and on the National Committee. Further opinions of Republicans and full editorial discussion desired by the committee, on the subject com mitted to them. All the plans sug gested by the prior committee were published in the New York Times of Felruary 28. 1881. Gen. Jno. A. Mar tin has printed an argument in favor of his plan, which he will send to ap plicants, who may address him at the office of the Champion, Atchison, Kan sas. Suggestions on the important ques tions involved may be transmitted to Mr. Win. E. Chandler, at Washington. D. C, or to any member of the com mittee of live, or '.o the undersigned at Hartford.

Shall tho Women Vote. Schuyler Sun. It will be two years or more before the electors of Nebraska will be called upon to decide by their ballots tho question of women suffrage as regards this state. In that time the question will be given a healthy agitation and the contest decided in accordance with the cool and sober judgment of the people, The Sun advocates the consti tutional amendment this far: Give the women of Nebraska the ballot if they want it. The mere matter of sex is ground to3 narrow to stand upon and question their right. But don't give them the ballot until thoioughly con vinced that t hey dont want it. Don't be guided in making your decision by the clamorings of a lot of short-haired women and long-haired men who climb on to every new issue for the Siiko of a little transient notoriety. They do not, to any great degree index the sentiment of the great majority of women for whom this inestimable political blessing is claimed. The women of this country are, as a class, intelligent and well informed. They are decidedly good judges of their own wants and to the extent of our exper ience they never lack emphasis in pro claiming them and demanding their fullOlmeut. By the conditions of sex which a wise Creator has imposed, the burdens of a family are divided in ac cordance wilh what the eternal fitness of things would seem to suggest. The man is the bread winner and the busi ness manager the maternal and house hold duties rest upon the women. The world has jogged along on this plan for quite a number of years and the women, instead of degenerating, have grown more beautiful and accomp lished with every generation. It is barely possible that the time has come when the programme should be changed, but let us first be sure of it. Every mau who caies to know can ascertain. Ask your wife, sister, mother or lady acquaintance. Learn if they are greatly disturbed or dis tressed by reason of political disfran chisement, and you will arrive at the very heart of the question. This is not a question of sentiment, bat one of prudence and public policy. We have great and abiding faith in the judgment of woman. If the intelli gent and loving mothers and sisters of this Nation or state asked the right of suffrage, we should feel that there is some grand motive that inspired the request. We should entertain the same faith in her ability to treat the trust intelligently and wisely that abides in every mau who trusts to woman his fortune or happiness. And it is these women who should de cide the question, and who doubts they would decide it wisely V If they feel that their homes would be any happier or the world any better by reason of their voting, then in the name of all lhat is good let them vote. Afton Notes. Dear Herald The outlook hei. is much more favorable than it w.is a few months ago; our starving stack of then are now fat. Never have we had sucli feed at this season before. The predictions of good crops seem to be verified, as all vegetation looks well; we have already had more "garden truck" than we had all last season, even though a hare of the ap propriation for seed failed to reach us.

Three half grown wolves only were captured, and were brought to town uninjured as trophies of the expedition. Wahoo Independent: On Tuesday last, Henry Ruff, who lives in this precinct near L. W.
