SCHOOL HOOKS AO YIN.
Every four years the public school
book question agitates the public
mind. That time has again come
round, and the school superintend
ent In the various counties will soon
take a vjte, and the farce of select
ing the best books will bo at an end
for another short period. The heads
of families thoe who furnish the
books for their children should
have something to say in this mat
ter, and the legislature should make
some enactment to remedy the mat
ter. Books that are adopted by tho
state should be well and substan
tially made printed on first-class
paper, with good type, etc. The
price should not be to exorbitant
that the price of tho books alone
should bar any one from obtaining
a good public heliool education.

A HIU'OltM SCHOOL.
Admiral Porter, in his annual re
port to the secretary of the navy,
says ho regards the apprentice sys
tem as one of the best features of tho
navy, and in that connection the
report runs thus :
The crews of our ships are gener
ally made up of sailors from every
part of the world, but mostly the
Scendinavian race, good reliable
men In time of peace, who caro lit
tle under what Hag they sail ; they
havo no sentiment for our Hag or
nationality, and possibly, if It came
to an action with a ship of their own
or neighboring nation, tiioy would
haul down tho American colors and
hoist their own. This Is a contin
gency against which we should pro
vide, and wo havo means of doing
so through tho vast number of
American boys who aro roaming the
streets at will, and who would con
sider government employment a
boon. What Is required is a larger
number of native-born apprentice
boys, and tho enlargement of tho
conveniences for their introduction
This would prove a mostexccllent
reform school for many a wny ward
boy, and would qualify him for a
useful and profitable life. Tho gov
ernment should provide recruiting
posts in tho various states, where
these youths could enter the service.
Tun telegraph tells discouraging
stories of allairs in tho western por
tion of Kansas. Whole counties
aro being depopulated, tho people
either going to Colorado or back to
tho Eastern states. For threo years
tho people havo raised no crops.
These counties comprise what the
old MOers called. tho Great Plains,
and are absolutely good for nothing
except stock raising. Tho people
havo been compelled to leavo or
starve. In Seott county there wero
100(1 people two years ago. To-day
thero are not moro than 4.r0. Many
of tho emigrants to our favored
clime aro from Kansas, and tell
many talcs of privation and sufler
ing. Thoso aro fortunato who leavo
while they yet havo money enough
on which to getaway.
In response to a recently publish
ed letter of Powderly, requesting an
expression of opinion by local assem
blies as to the necessity for congres
sional legislature on tho subject of
trusts, loud assembly li!38 has sent a
letter to congress, demanding Imme
diate legislation to abolish all Insti
tutions that gamble In food, and in
further protection to tho masses,
that all trusts bo abolished.
C.A. PiLLSiuniY, tho big Min
neapolls miller, is a bull on wheat,
and declares tho price will yet touch
two dollars. Ho now has on hand
about a half a million bushels, near
ly iv third of which is in his own
elevators. Ho does not hold any
thing in Chicago, and simply says
"It's n short crop," when asked why
ho is a bull.
Thk managers of tho Southern

Several small bets have been made

Remarked an old gentleman, as ho
gazed fondly upon the comely little
woman by his side; "but frankly,"
ho continued, "at ono time I
thought cosmetics would." The
siily little woman, in order to appear
youthful, plastered her faco with
dlflercnt varieties of whitewash,
yclept, "blams," "creams," "lo
tion," &c. "Yes" interrupted the
littlo woman, " I did, until my skin
became like parchmont, and so
pimply and coarse." " Well," said
tho listener, "what do you use now?"
" Use," wua'tho reply, " nothing but
