Seutember 20, 1831. j
Ed. Hf.kald: This morning dawns
clear and beautiful; the birds are
singing just as sweetly as though un
conscious of the dark nail that has
fallen ujioii the Nation. Last night,
the national heart throbbed with the
faint hope that there might be some
vitality left in the once splendid con
stitution but the seeds of death were
sown and the reaper, death, stood
ready to strike the fatal blow, and
the Nation awoke to the sad reality
that the Chief Magistrate iB no more.
He who by his patriotism in defense
of his country in the d.irkest hours of
its existence, and his statesmanship
in congress, his conservative and
manly course during his brief presi
dential career, has won the respect
and endeared him to the hearts of thu
whole people, both North Mid South,
for I have watched the papers to see
the lone of the southern press during
the President's illness, and I have
seen but one article but what seemed
to manifest the deepest interest in
the President's recovery, and sympa
thy for the afflicted family; one paper
published an article signed "ex-Cou-federale"
saying that in the death of
Garfield, he would not be missed
more than Guiteau; but that was al
most universally condemned by the
southern people here. And this morn
ing yon hear only words of sorrow and
regret at the great loss the Nation has
sustained. This morning, a southern
lady, when told that Garfield was
dead, wept; how different now; when
Lincoln died she w;u glad; O.i, how
blinded the south was to their own in
terests when they look the life of the
noble Lincoln. This lady, like others
of the South, has lived to learn that
the North does not want to annihi
late the South but restore a perfect Un
ion and that our interests are one. I was
talking with a lusiness man this
morniiig; his face wore a troubled
look; I spoke of the President's death,
he seemed to arouse as f rum a deep
study and said with much earnestness
'Yes, it's a terrible blow; for I don't
believe there is another man in the
Nation so well qualified to removo
that hitler sectional feeling which has
so long existed, as Gaifield. He has
endeared iiimself to the Southern peo
ple by his manly course. He said a
man who had come up through the
difficulties that Garfield had, to the
highest gift of the people, was worthy
uf their confidence.
To-day all the business houses aie
draped in mourning showing respect
for the dead Piesident.
1 saw one building draped with the
words '"We Mourn our Nation's loss"
and one had the National Flag draped
and in the centre a large picture of
President Garfield. All seem to unite
in paying respect to the illustrious
dead This svmpaihy manifested
during the President's ill
ness, and death by the southern peo
ple, has . changed my feelings in a
measure, and I will feel like having a
little rnu-e charity and not judge all
.ts bad and unregenerattd.
I saw an anicle in the Louisville
Courier Journal from one of their cor
respondents who Wr.s traveling
through the state; he said it was truly
wtfnderful to see what a hold Gar
field had n the affections of the peo
ple; he said by chose observation and
talking with the people lie believed if
Garfield lived ami was renominated
for another term, there would not be
two thousand democratic votes cast
igainst him in the state, of Kentucky,
(of course this must be takn with a
degre of allowance) but to say the
least, it showed a grea change in the
sei fiments in the South.
"Well, James A. Garfield has one to
his long . rest after so many long
weary weeks of baffling and battling
with death which he lias faed on
many a buttle iii'ld; and - now the life
which has been so blamtless and s-i
full of usefulness had to be destroyed
by t!if hand of an assassin, who, for a
little notoriety, sent to a premature
grave a great and g uul man who will
ha mourned by a people wiio have
'earned to love and respect him so
muoh; and the mrtnileofthegre.it man
rt ill f;.ll upot; olhr phonhlers and t lie
ship of state will be guided by other
hands and I hopo it may be with wis
dom for it will be no ea-v task to fill
umr r rices are
SO fllays rea
the presidential chair amid the crit
icism of an exacting people and I
trust that he upon whose shoulders
the mantle falls may. prove worthy of
the confidence of the people and that
this great Nation's affliction may be
the means of cementing more strongly
the bond of union between the North
and South and that the old sectional
feeling may be buried so deep it can
never bj resurrected again.
I have written too much now and
will close. I am sorry I could not in
be with the boys before the
convention but could not in
justice to myself. I was very ill for
sometime but am improving slowly
now, and hope to be home soon.
H. I). Root.
Prom Burt Co.j Neb.
Editor, of toe Herald: I
will senu vou a few items from Burt
County, Neb. This is a fine part of
Nebraska; the Arizona bottoms aire in
this county and they are acknowl
edged to be among the richest lands in
the state. I can show you some of
the best corn on the bottoms I ever
saw. This county not only produces
good corn, but it is a great place for
stock. Corn, hay, hogs and cattle are
the things to make money on in this
country. I am preaching at regular
appointments, ailing them every two
I raised a line garden this summer
and have pruned over nine hundred
fruit trees, since I have been here,
which is about four months. We now
number three in family as we have a
little boy who will soon be a month
old. Mr. Editor, I think we have as
good neighbors as any man or woman
ever lived by. It is a blessing we
highly appreciate. We are expecting
to move on our own land which we
own in Jefferson county. We expect
to move in November. We like Ne
braska so well that we intend to buy
more land in it. W. S. Fields,
The success of Harper's "Frank! in
Square Song Collection", has been so
great that the publishers now an
nounce an edition in cloth binding.
There is so much variety in the book
that every taste may be satisfied, but
one of its strongest claims to popular
ity is the number of old songs that we
out of print or long forgotten which
may be found between its covers.
A paper that will be read with in
terest, in the- light of the coming
Yorktown celebration, is "Old York
town" by Thomas Nelson Page, a de
scendant of the founder of the town,
as well as of Thomas Ne!son, who was
governor at the time of its capture
and surrender by the British. It will
appear in the October Scribnpr, and
will be accompanied by some old time
pictures, together with illustrations
f the Yorktown o to-day, made by
Blum and Penneil, on th ground.
The charm of out-of-door life is
making itself known to more people
every year, and the books that treat of
nature or life in the open air are con
sequently becoming more and mere
popular. To meet this growing taste,
the Messrs. Harper have prepared a
new -edition of "Camp Life; or, The
Tricks of Trapping and Trap Making,"
with illustrations by W. Hamilton
Gibson, which they will soon publish.
The vain? of the practical articles
in St. Nicholas will be amply shown
by a little story to be contributed to
the October number, teding how a boy
was saved from drowning by the
timely remembrance of instructions
given in a St. Nicholas article on
swimming; and an editorial note will
be appended, recounting two other es
capes from drowning, which have
been due to the same admirable ar
ticle. The magazine abounds in these
practical papers, which are great aids
in household life; and the same num
ber inwhieh this story of escape is to
be printed will contain p. paper, en
titled "How to be Taken Care of,"
which will give many hints and sug
gestions of use to ailing folks, both
grown up and small.

The Presbyterian General Assembly
has taken advanced ground on the
temperance question. A permanent
committee on temperance, consisting
of tifteen men, eight ministers and
seven laymen, among them Rev. Dr.
Cuyler, and Hon. XV. E. Dodge, was
appointed to report a plan of active
church temperance woik. It also re-

the question of using grape juice in

this is a calm leply to Rev. Dr. Cros
bv's calm view.
Teach the Beys About It.
At Lome and at school the boys
should be taught the natural effect
of alcohol upon the processes of hu
man life. First they should be taught
that it can add nothing whatever to
the vital forces or to the vital tissues
that it never enters into the ele
ments of structure; second, they
should be taught that it disturbs the
operation of the brain and that the
mind can get no help from it that is
to be relied upon; third, they should
be taught that alcohol influences the
baser passiens, and debases the feel
ings; fourth, they should be taught
that an appetite for strong drink is
certainly formed in those that use it,
which destroys the health, injures the
character, and in millions of instances
becomes ruinous to fortunes, and to
all the high interests of the soul; fifth,
they should be taught that crime and
pauperism are directly caused by alco
hol. So long as 32.000,000 are daily
spent for drink in England, and 2,
000,000 per day in the United States,
leaving little else to show for its cost
but diseased stomachs, degraded
homes, destroyed industry, increased
pauperism, and aggravated crime, the
boys should understand the facts
about alcohol, and be able to act upon
them in their earlies; responsible con

A Merciless Wretch.
A striking illustration of the merci
less way in which liquor-sellers prey
upon their unhappy victims has lately
been brought to the notice of the pub
lic in Patterson, N. J. It appears from
the story, as told by the Orange (N.J.)
Journal, that about five years ago, a
citizen of Paterson came into the pos
session of about twenty-five thousand
dollars by the death of his parents;
that his father was n successful busi
ness man; that he lias lately been ad
judged by a commission to be an "hab
itual drunkard," with the view . ti ti e
part of securing for him the appoint
ment of a legal guardian. From the
testimony taken by the commission it
was shown that he had squandered in
drink at least seventeen thousand dol
lars, and of this nearly ten thousand
dollars was spent inonesaloun in Pat
erson. It was testified that he lay
drunk for days, and was charged with
the cost for liquor drank by everybody
who came in while lie was there.
Towards morning, it was stated, the
landlord would send him home, and
his wife would find him lying on the
fiont stoop, Btill too drunk to take
care of himself. On one occasion, it
was testified, he did not have money
to pay for the liquor he. had charged
to him and the landlord induced him
to give him the barn on his lot. "The
barn" says the Journal, "was bodily
removed troru his place to the prem
ises of the landlord, and there it
s'ands to-da)'." Such :s liquor-land
lordism as illustrated by a Paterson
liquor-seller. And such aro the men
licensed by the Slate to prey upon
their neighbors. The liquor trafli
thus conducted, ii akin to piracy or
highway robbery under the forms of
the law. The law should be revolu
tionized ii::d the traihe abolished. Ex.

The bill providing for the closing of
public houses in Wales on Sunday, so
tar as concerns the sale of liquor, is
remai kal4y popular with .the Welsh
people. In North Wales a voluntary

been held, and 7o,-ilO votes iu favor of
the bill were cast, and only 2,925
against it. In Sauth Wales the feeling
is the same.

At the session of the National Cath

The Church of England Temperance
Society is issuing leaflets, giving re
ceipes for temperance beverages which
it is hoped farmers and others will use
in the harvest field in substitution for
intoxicating drinks. Here is a simple
beverage, two quarts of which is said
to contain more nutriment than ten
gallons of ale: Oatinekl made into a
thin gruel with salt and sugar added
to taste, a small portion of nutmeg
grated, an egg or two well whisked up
and mixed in while warm, is said to
be an improvement. The old Scotch
beverage for those who drink whilo
perspiring is cold water with a good
sprinkling of oatmeal in it. This is
incomparably better than whiskey in
The shooting of the President and
his struggle for life have indirectly
pointed out a defect in our scheme of
of education the lack of some insruc
tion in the rudiments of anatomy,
physiology, and hygiene. For more
than two months liity millions of peo
ple have been deeply interested in the
wound made by Guiteau's bullet. They
have read it again and again the des
criptions of the path which that bul
let is supposed to have taken, and
have studied the speculations of sur
geons as to the bullet's resting-place.
They have anxiously examined the of
ficial and unorlicial reports relating to
the progress f the work of restora
tioti.and discussed with their physicians
and others the probability of the Pres
ident s recovery. No other gun-shot
wound has ever been so exhaustively
described to the public, and no other
patients symptoms have been so care
fully recorded and explained to a na
tion. The conversations and expres
sions of opinion which have been caus
ed by the wide-spread publication of
tho record of the case have directed
the attention of many intelligent per
sons to their own ignorance, and to
the ignorance of others, concerning
tne structure of the human bodv. Per
sons of all degrees of education have
been continually showing that they
know almost nothing of the simplest
trutlis of anatomy and physiology.
1 heir own bodies are to them a sealed
bosk or a puzzle.
No one will deny that it is most de
sirable that everyone should nnder-
stand the stiucture of the human
body, the location and functions of its
parts and those fundamental princi
pals the observance of which is neces
sary for the preservation of health;
but it must be admitted that the facil
ities for gaining this most useful and
easily acquired knowledge in our
schocls, and even in seminaries and
colleges, are conspicuous by their ab
sence. The reasons for the thorough
dissemination of such knowledge are
almost without number, and they are
at once suggested to him who turns
over the subject in his mind. It is
tho knowledge which enables each per
son to preserve his life and health and
the lives and health of those dear to
him. It shows one why bad habits of
living should be avoided; the necessity
and value of exercise are explained by
it, and the manner in which strength
can be and ought to be developed.
Children who are taught these truths
and principles gain ability to care for
themselves and to understand the wis
dom of their parent's injunctions. Pa
rents who have been taught become
capable of properly directing their
children and keeping their bodies
sound. The real danger which accom
panies obedience to some of the most
imperative dictates of fashion is made
clear by this knowledge to those who
are exoosed to it.
There are some schools and colleges
in which effective instruction of this
sort is given, but a glance at the whole
field shows that there are but few of
them. If there be objection to the ad
dition of these studies to those already
on the list, thay are but trifling in com
parison with the advantages to be ob
tained. If the list is already sufficient
ly long, then room for tnis instruction
tion should be made by the removal of
something les:S useful, and it will not
be hard to find studies which are of
little value when compared with this.
There can be no good excuse for per
sistent failure to give to the young an
opportunity to Lecoino acquainted
with thoso facts and principles a
knowledge of which would, if general
ly acquired, extend the average age of
mankind, increase the number of swund
bodies and sound minds, and very
considerably decrease the total amount
of the world's misery. New York
Dark Clothes anJ Disease.
It may not, perhaps, be known that a
man wearing dark clothes is more lia
ble to infection from con! ugious dis
ease than ho who wears light-colored
garments, because particles which ema
nate from diseased or decaying bodies
nro much more readily absorbed by
!ak tiian by light fa'-rics. This is
easy f proof. Expose a light and dark
coat to the fumes of tobacco for live
minutes, ami it will be found that the
dark one smells stronger than the ot!i r
of tobacco smoke, and it will retain tho
odor longer. London Truth.
