J The flag that caused such u hurrah at Me- Cook on the evening of July 3 , which was suspended from the Citizens' bank and the Famous clothing house , of that city , ut the time evoking such cries as "Shoot It down ! " "Tear the rng down ! " was received by ex- liress by Governor Thaycr to-day , without explanation or comment other than the in scription on the reverse side of the tag that mnrlcod the Hag's destination : "Fiom Jacob bteinmctz. " The Hag in question , pronounced the stars nnd bars ut McCook , and which is biiid to have set old soldiers and loyal ritbcns theio wild with excitement , is somo- wliut like an old rebel Hag In design. H i-f made of three stiipcs of red. white and blue cloth , about two feet In width und perhaps sixteen feet in length. In the upper right liuiid corner Is set n squnropiece of red cloth , Imprinted on which is an eagle und a few regulation stats , nnd attached to this is a Bimill Hug of stars and stripes. Hut national colors only wore used. The Hag remained suspended from the buildings stated about twenty minutes , when it was torn down , the excitement there hav ing grown so intense that It was un- pafo to let it remain longer. Btolmnct/ , receiver of public mon eys ut the United Stutes hind olllco , und Po- llco Judge O'Donnoll stretched the rope Hint suspended the rug.

Ilu asked the governor to wnto him , for | > ubl'inn , In his opinion whether or not the the thing in nny way resembled the old rebel slurs una bars , Governor Thaycr pould not conceive why he should aid in set I tling the mutter or why thu Hug .should have been sent him ul ull und will pay no utlen- tion whatever to the letter. IL One is forcibly reminded by this Incident that the loyul noith will not stand mijth'iig ' tiiat looks like the old rebel Hag L V v living from mast or house top on the great day of the nation's birth , or for that mutter at any other time.

For instance , com plaint is mndo that n party has been elected to the oftlco of school director who can neither read nor write the English language , when , perhaps , the major portion of the resi dents of the school district are intelligent , native born citi/ens. The pertinent question arising is , is hucb u party eligible to the of- llcol Complaints are continuous that district tieasurcis arc paying off bonds , whereas such payment ought to bo muuo by the county treasurer. Divers other questions more or less complicated are constantly re ceived that the school laws ought to clearly dell no. Now , I propose to prepare extensive notes , explanatory of the school laws of the state , covering all these technical questions and have thorn become a part of the school laws prepared for the general use of district boards.

Some time ago the inedibilities of windmills for domestic electric lighting were mentioned in scioneo , und lately the experiment has boon prnetieully tried. Prof. lilyth rend before- the Glasgow Philosophical society a paper on the .subject , in which he describes an experiment which ho made last summer. the lighting of a cottage in which ho spent his vacation by a dynamo driven by a windmill , and charging u btorage battery. The wind mill used was an old-fashioned type , with four arms at right angles to oaoh other , each of them thirteen feet long. Tliero was no especial regulating de vice. The d.\namo was belted directly to the lly-wheel of the inill.andchargeit twelve cells of .storage which supplied the inde-cont lumiM in the cottage. Prof. IJlylh had never u ed more limn ton lainpat once , but ho could have iiied more. With a good breeze , enough electricity could bo stored in half a day to supply light for four evenings of three or four hours uneh. The lamps u cd were of h-cundlo power. When charging , the current passed through a cut-out that would discon nect thorn from the dynamo when it ran below a certain speed ; BO the wind mill couid bo allowed to run all the time , charging the butlory when the wind happened to bo htro'ng enough. The current had boon used to run a light turning lathe , and Prof. Bl.\th had begun to nmlco a light carriage' 1)0 run by the stored electricity. The paper opens to us a Held for ingenuity , comfort , and amusement in our home.- , . Windmills much superior to that described - scribed can bo readIv ! purchased , a small dynamo can be bought or built at little coat , and storage-batteries can bo purchased or inudu. With them wo could light our house economically ; our light would bo bolter , cooler , and healthier than gas or coal oil lamps ; wlnlo the current could bo utilized for running fans , sowing machines , etc. Indeed , to the average American , with some spare time and some small in genuity , thoamusomontand instruction of sucli a plant would moro than puv for its expense- .
