J. H. Reed writes us from Riverside,
California, among other things saying
that their burg is just finishing np a job
of picking and shipping between 500 and
600 car loads of Christino oranges. They
are-mostly sold on eastern orders, f.o.b.
here at high prices, and are pretty but
not yet sweet. So yon see it is not our
fault if yon buy sour oranges. They are
really not ripe till February to April.
We expect to ship about 7,000 cars of
oranges from this point this season, if
the frost don't catch us. Mr. Reed adds
that they are all quite well
It is very evident that something
must be done with unruly boys at school,
a little different from what is now the
customary way. A boy was unruly at
Lehigh. Iowa, the other day, and impu
dently refused to change his seat, and
when the teacher attempted to take him
ont of his seat, the boy drew a large
pocket-knife and attacked the teacher
stabbing him in three places. The
teacher, O'Malley, is a well-known Iowa
educator, and may not recover from the
injuries inflicted. It will hardly do to
let unruly school children dictate to the
teacher, and with some of them who are
here and there yet in authority, it would
not be healthy for the ordinary school
disturbing tough to draw a knife with
intent of mischief. Public opinion is
hardly in favor of invoking the aid of the
police in ordinary cases of discipline,
and the superintendent very strenuously
and rightly objects to being made a
whipping-post for teachers that fail to
govern in their own jurisdiction. So
there you are, and it is much the same
question in Columbus, or any other place
as it is at Lehigh, with the poaBJbOitiea

One of Israel Gluck'a numerous
debtors sold the equity he had in his
land the other day to a Columbus banker,
leaving quite a mortgage on it. running
yet for five years, at 8 per cent per
annum. The banker went to Mr. Gluck,
wishing to cancel the mortgage, saying
that he was constitutionally opposed to
letting a mortgage run on a place of his,
but Mr. Gluck didn't see any good way
ont of it except for the banker to give
Mr. Gluck bis individual note for the
amount, at the given rate for the given
time the investment was such that he
was a little afraid of it once, bnt now it
is all right By the way, we hear of a
man very readily snapping up an offer of
Mr. Glnck to accept a bonus of $50 to
receive payment of a loan not yet due
for some years. This is quite a reversal
of the old order of things.
