We are pained to learn of the
death of the Rev. C. W.

this city. Mr. Springer was at one

About that Printing Steal.
The editor of the Guide Bock Sig
nal, in his efforts to prove a steal in
th printing of the election tickets
last fall, is evidently actuated by mo
tives that are child-like and bland, yet
yery cunning. In his effort to figure
up what the tickets should cost, he
utterly fails to figure as a sensible
business man should, even if his fig
ures were correct; which they Jack a
great deal of being. In the first
place, two printers, no matter how
competent they might be, could not
.pet the t'ekets out in ten dajB nor
twenty days, under the circumstances.
Ev,ery 250 tickets had io he changed,
:id a rule, Mid naif of the ticket je-
" et, the half ot which uould he usual
ly 1? inches of space, then adjusted,
proof read, corrected and put t press,
run off and prepared to deliver.
Kvery such instance took from two to
four hours as the case demanded, some
times much longer. The newspaper
presses had to be brought into use, as
the tickets were 22 inches long ; and
too large for the small presses. That
took an extra man or steam engine to
ran the press, at an expense of from
3 to $4 per day for just one little
item, the birring of extra material
that was needed for that job. and that
alone cost from 15 to 525. The iuter
est on a man's investment, his rent,
fuel, lights, wages, paper, etc., all h
ter into the matter when one figures
or a job of work, or should, (we don't
know how the Signal man does) as
those expenses can only be met by a
fair margin on what one does, or there
is no use working. As wc said Detore
two hands could not do the work and
get it out as the law required, Hence
an extra force had to be hired, aud
The Chief and Argus both had to put
on extra help in order to finish the job
according to law. The Signal figures
wages at $2 per day, which would be
all rieht for ten hours a daVt but when
a man works 24 hours he expects
hours pay for it; therefore the wages
for five hands would be about $100
for ten days. But say that it cost the
office at a fair hgure SbU lor lanor, or
thereabouts, saying nothing for other
expenses, such as necessarily follow.
The other expenses foot up: Ink $3,
fuel for engine ten dayb, a low esti
mate would be $2 per day, $20; pa
per, book and news, $5 per bundle,
$20; extra material $15, wear and tear
of machinery, interest on investment,
rent, fuel, lights, etc., at a low ngure,
$15. Then deduct, if you please, 10
per cent off of warrants ot $-U0,
which would be $20, would leave a
balance of profit to the office of $27,
certainly no great amount of money
for an 18,000 job of ten days dura
tion. If that is what the Signal calls
stealing, he must have a peculiar idta
of it. We rather think the Signal
has other motives in his warfare oa
the Red Cloud papers, than just the
mere item of stealing, and It Bmacks
Why have chills, ague and fever, suffer

That the South is growiug rapidly
is shown by the fact that 1,740 new
manufacturing enterprises were locat
ed within her borders during the past
six months. These have been attract

cheap raw materials and fuel, of
which the South can boast a greater
supply than is found elsewhere in the
Union. The portion of West Virgin

We cannot say that the present
danger is such that we should quaran
tine this country against Russian im
migrants and ai tides of commerce.
This extreme measure is not needed
with the knowledge we now have of
guarding against tha immigration of
disease. But it is plainly necessary
that we should clear all Russians and
Russian goods as suspects and should
treat them accordingly. Aticlcs of
commcrc3 coming from Russian ports
should be thoroughly disinfected, -and
