In all reports in reference te dis
eases of hogs, it is found that when
ever soft corn is fed cholera is a pre
vailing disease. The disease is not in
an epidemic form, bat it seems to be
due to the corn that is fed. Farmers
or those who have hogs to feed
should be careful in their feeding. A
hog is like any other animal, if it
does not get suitable foot its digestive
organs will become affected and re
sult in some disease. Jfarqyette In
The Sidney Plaindealer, re
marking npon Judge Gaslin's sending
a man to the penitentiary ior fifteen
years for forging a small note, says :
One year for forging the note, and
fourteen years was for general cussed

general cussedness. The next time
that Judge Gaslin comes up to Sidney
to hold court there will be a sign
hanging on the window of this omce,
which will read as follows: The

Black Hills, will not retarn until

sible remarks, among which are that
"men and boys who get into bad
scrapes are generally those who
squander their money anyhow, and
they care nothing for a fine of a few
dollars," and another to the effect
that the disgrace of being: . i'ed up
in police court and the fi c posed
is considered as nothing these
fellows compared to a repo or it in
the papers. The disgrace r.ith them

Some of the readers of the Journal
also take and read the Madison Chron
icle. There is an article in I think its
last issue, assailing Humphrey, claim
ing to be written by an Humphrey
correspondent. The writer has been
looked for, but as yet he can not be
found ; it has been attributed to one
man east of here, but he denies writ
ing the matter so I will briefly say
that onr preachers are a class of men
who are not grumblers, and the peo
ple in town do not wish to have a less
number; as for the saloons they are
doing a prosperous business, and all
branches of business have prospered
in our town ; there is one point in
said letter 1 wish to dwell a little
upon, which says "I took a load of
hogs to Madison and made six dol
lars by so doing ;" that is a very small
matter to harp upon we have almost
daily parties that are honest enough
to tell that they do that and better by
bringing their produce and trade
here, and our town receives a large
support from Madison county, men
whe are intelligent, careful men. The
writer asserts that he made six dol
lars; $L50 to Chronicle and the re
mainder, to use his own words, the
woman, and thinks that better than to
give to preachers and saloons. Per
haps it is. But as far as our people
are concerned, we have not heard one
of 'these preachers swear nor the two
saloon keepers pray, but keep right
on as if nothing had happened. C.

I A. Glass, Aftat
F. W. Parker defines reading as
u getting thoughts by means of written
or printed words arranged in senten
ces." Experience has shown that the
ability to read may be acquired inci
dentally, if the attention is primarily
directed to the subject of the thought.
But under the old humdrum system
the mechanical pronunciation of the
words of a sentence in their proper
order is called reading. The means
are mistaken for the end, and the true
end is not reached. In consequence
of this we hare dull, distasteful, un
profitable, monotonous and unpleas
ant reading exercises. The object of
all school exercises is to promote
mental growth. Words have only a
representative value. Thought con
trols the expression ; passages which
are not understood cannot be read
clearly and forcibly. All elocution
ary drill which is not preceded by an
intelligent mastery of the passage is
not only out of place, but exceedingly
hurtful. It is quite evident that be
fore a class has mastered a selection,
it will have to be engaged upon it by
discussions, written efforts, etc There
will be little if any time for elocu
tionary drill, distinctively as such;
nor is any needed. The true and only
drill needed is the simple effort to
express the idea of a passage while
studying it. Says one of our most
independent teachers : "Good reading
never comes from rules, it comes from
attempts to express, earnestly and
clearly, an adequately comprehended
thought. I have taught elocution a
good deal myself, but I teach less and
less of it ; as I find my classes read
more and more, and are really hungry
for the appetizing relish, which comes
from stopping with a meaty passage,
and staying long enough to extract
its sweetness." By such- a system,
however, our progress "through the
book" will be slow ; our patrons, etc.
will become impatient. But, fellow
teachers, it matters not ; we stand on
a higher plane; we know the real
purpose of the reading class. We are
not ignorant of the fact that every
American citizen considers it his con
stitutional right to bully "that teach
er." The now famous Mr. Alcott
was starved out of Boston fifty years
ago for maintaining that the best way
to teach children is to begin by ob
serving how they teach themselves.
Our reading class is the true language
and literary class, including spelling,
reading and composition (oral and
written). There our boys and girls
learn by practice to express their
ideas orally and by writing, with ease
and force. There they learn to ap
preciate beauty and force of expres
sion. There they learn to recognize
authors by their styles. There they
learn good syntax and good usage of
English idiom. Children are not ex
pected to be elocutionists. Quiet,
simple, intelligent reading is our aim ;
no more "rant and strut." A genuine
apprehension of the thought and feel
ing of the selection will lead to a
much better delivery than those
senseless drills in pitch, tone, inflec
tions, etc., etc. If the teacher has no
time to train the pupils "to a good
understanding of the passage read,
then be has no time to train them to
the elocutionary delivery of that
passage. The first is the foundation
on which the second rests ; it is the
material out of which it is formed."
I think it was Gen. Sheridan who
reported to his superior before Rich
mond that he was ready to "push"
things. Fellow teachers, are we ready
to "push" a reading reform? We
ought to be. Teacher.
