?ti(i Fropr'Mor*. T JRBMMf Wee*., to «**• I > BY FRIDAY, AUGUST SO, 1P89. Tho Swtsa Republic. In the yrar 1C01 tlireo small comma- uJtjps in theniiiistof tho great powers of Europe Icrii^iod together for mutual eoM defense That league in ond form or another has existed ever since, and it was the foundation of the compact little Swiss confederation. The government sinca 1291 liaa passed through sir constitutional phase*. The present conati- ftition wag adopted iu 1848, and stands for what the Swiss patriots believe to be the model of republican organic law. The Swiss republic, however, is very unlike our own. To begin with, it has no president such na we understand by the term. Tho executive department consists of a federal council, composed of ueven members. They aro elected for a term of three years by the Swiss congress, or federal assembly, as it ia called. Each of the seven has a particular part of the government to look after. The federal assembly elects 15110 of tho seven president of the executive council, and another one of them vice president. The president and vice president serve for one year. The president of the executive council also serves as president of the confederation, but hU duties in this capacity consist only in receiving foreign representatives. He appoints no postmasters nor anybody else. His •alary is $2,700. The federal assembly, like our own, is made up of two houses. The lower house 10 called tho national council and is elected for three years. The u pper house is the council of states. In Switzerland there are twenty-two cantons, which correspond In a measure to our states. Each canton, like our states, sends two senators to the council of states. But sena- —tars are not-paid-by-the general government. They look to their own cantons for that, unless the assembly sits during 11 recess. Members of the national council are paid from the general fund, and receive $4 a day for actual service. Mileage is allowed; Tho judiciary department consists of nine judge" plwtwl for six years by the federal assembly. Switzerland has three official languages— French, German and Italian. The mostinteresting feature of-the Swiss government, however, is the .famous referendum. By it political parties are rendered of no avail in Switzerland. By taking advantage of it. the Swiss people at large are able themselves at'any time to change their constitution. 'It is the survival of an ancient historic right of a free people. The referendum means what it indicates—a referring, and to the p"eople. If 60,000 Swiss citizens ask for a revision of the Swiss constitution, then the question ia submitted to the whole people and voted on, and the whole people decide whether they want a revision. If th'^ two legislative houses cannot agree on a revision, this, too, is at once submitted to a vote of the people. If a law passed by the federal assembly is of questionable utility, and 80,000 citizens petition for the referendum, the whole people vote on the law, and fhey may decide that they do not want it in the very teeth of the assembly that has just passed it. Thus the people themselves, and the people only, have the veto power in their own hands. They themselves are their own final tribunal. This is the most unique and interesting feature of —government in modern times: ~—~— It pr-nioiT, Au^r. :< '. — -\t Yr'-.Vr-imy niorn- isijr's «~s-ii'ii\ of the ii<lil'> convention W, S.

JACKSONVILLE, Fin., Aug. 30.—John M. Brownell, who killed Deputy United States Marshal Woller in Holmes county, and who was, after his arrest, released by the state authorities on the plea of justifiable homicide, was brought to this city Tuesday by United States officials, and given a hearing before Commissioner Walter, on the charge of resisting United States officers. The hearing was concluded yestorday and Brownell discharged, it balng shown, that the deputy who was killed did not disclose the fact that be was a government officer when he attempted to arrest BrownelL Gobbled for Moonthlnlng. Before he could leave tha court room the original warrant charging him with moon- shining was served on Browne!!, and he was again taken into custody. He will be allow ed to go to hjs home in Holmes oeunty, accoinpttnHd_by_an officer, to secure the tli,r>00 hail imposed by liuTcbmfnissionor. Tho Iiittlc Cow. Two billion and n half of dollars are invested in the dairy business in the United Status. The whole banking and commercial interest of the country amounts to only u little more than hall that sum. at) that the cow is mightier than iron vaults and safes. A million horse*. tlirce-iiiuirterH of a million of men and sixty million acres of land are requiivil t" produce food for the cow and take cure »f her milk. Iu return for this care nlii* KivtM us si* and three-quarter billion galluiks uf milk a year, amounting to |810.000.U()0. One cow averages 450 gallons of milk u year. In Iowa, suiue twenty years ago, agriculturists begun to turn their attention seriously to the dairy business. The cow rewarded them first by paying off all the mortgage!! on their farms, and then giving them a competency. Success to cow, corn and cotton, the three great factors in our prosperity.

As it has been said that Mrs. Hauwell, In her honeyed Way, may have mutilated, the clothing herself and then terrified the girl into saying she did it. Any one that knows Mra. Li. A.

On Monday, the flfth of this month, about four [o'clock in the afternoon, Emma found my papers and letters packed in a straw bed. On inquiry Lucy Haswell said she did it. I then began to look among our clothing and found everything belonging to Emma was cut or torn so she - could not wear them. I then found my dresses, all but two, are either cut or torn so badly that they cannot be worn. I asked who did it. Lucy said she did it because Mrs Lampkle told her to. I then tie) tier for about an hour. On Tuesday morning Emma brought Mr. Haswell'a clothea down, and my table linen, napkins and such things, are cut or torn almost to pieces. When I saw such destruction I did not know what to do, but I tied her perhaps an hour and a half, not longer. 1 then sent for three of the neighbors to come in and I showed what she had done and what I was doing. Mr. Fitzgerald came and talked JOT n ) -r -,, > 1 v ] r - - i «* I !uv> bf-pn done nn<' nil thmt I have done to misuse Lucy or any ot.hnr child that, hns ever lived with me. L. A. 0. HARWELL. w FROM THEIR ATTORNEY. Mr. Haswell, in view of the peculiar conduct of his daughter, Lucy, hns placed her in the family of Mr. G. D. ^tino, of Iowa, who are acquaintances and friends. After a careful inventiga- tion of this matter I am satisfied that the statements made by the above nsined parties are correct. C. L. SHELDON, Attorney for Mr. and Mrs. Ilaswell. Aug. liOth, 1839.

HKYKIl/VL, I>KRIIAI,H. The following Interesting commnni- cations in relation to the alleged ill- treatment of Lucy Haswell, by her atepmother, Mrs.N. P. Haswell, (formerly Mrs. Chase) we publish by request, deeming it but fair to give thf parties a hearing: FUOM LUCY. , I saw in the EVENING GAZETTE of the seventh, that mother had tied and locked me in a room all day and fed me on bread and water and otherwise ill-treated me. It la a lie; she did not do it, and mother did not keep me In the kitchen all day Monday, tied, or keep me on bread and water.' I had just what the rest had at the table; and the GAZETTE said that it was thought by some that mother had cut the clothing and terrified me to say that I did it. Mother did not do it; I did it myself, because father did not let me go to Sunday school, and it made me mad, was the reason 1 did it. LUCY HASWELL. FROM EMMA. , Wednesday, August 13th,'1889. I saw a statement 1 in. the EVENING GAZETTE of the seventh, that my mother had ill-treated Imcy Haswell. It is not so, it is a lie; because I was in the house most of the lime and I know she was just as good and kind to Lucy as she could be; and it said that Ma tied Lucy with ropes and locked her In a room a whole day and fed her on bread and water, and otherwise ill-treated her. It ia a big lie; for Ma did not lock her up and feed her on bread and water. And it said that Ma kept Lucy in tha kitchen all day Monday. That is not true, for she did not keep Lucy in the kitchen all day Monday. Lacy was not in the kitchen tied more than one hour and a half, if that long. We did not find it out until after four o'clock and then ihe was free before six o'clock Monday night € And ic said in the GAZETTE that'is thought by some that the woman may have mutilated the clothing herself and then terrified the gill into saying she- did it. My mother sever cat and tore the clothing and then made Lucy say she "did It. I found the things myself and went and told her of it, and I would uk Lacy if she did it and she would say, yea; and ahe told me what most of the things were that she cut. EMMA L. CHASE, Sterling, IU. FROM H. f. UAJSWEJLL. August Kitb, 1($U. In reply to tha pldc« in tha paper of ttie seventh concerning the ill-treat- tueut by HM.K.P. Haswei! to Luey, whi-sti U ftUtolatsiy f&tae from tha first to t&a IME, &r«t I «uu re*4jr to ?ai-« it «ua it f«« h** •"with Lucy and said he had frightened her BO Bhe would not destroy anything more, but she did, and kept it up until away: On Monday, the 12th, she cut nnd tore two feather beds, pillows and sheets. She burned and tore everything she could lay her hands on. Then Bhebegan^destroying her own clothing. Her fattier punished her, but she was all the worse, forahebogitnanUtwiBted my silver spoons and doubled them Into all kinds of shapes. On Sunday, the 18th, she went Into the cellar and poured out pails of paint and plastered everything she could, and spoiled more of my silverware. Did I misuse or punish her for it V No, I did not; I did not tie her to punish her for what she had done, but because I was afraid of what might be done. If any one doubts this statement I hope they will come and see for themselves, I am willing; llpulth Commandment*. t. Thou ehalt Imvo no other food than at meal time. 2.

One of tlie mo?,t ur.»tul pulil'it'-it'iins for bunders and persons ccintempla'lTifr building '8 the beantifuUy illustrated Architect iind Builder edition of the Scientific A.mpriean, published monthly by Munn & Co., the celebrated Put?ut Solicitors, at "01 Broadvray. New York. It has become the custom for moat of the builders in the United Kt ites nml Cimuda to keep on (lie this publication, not only for their own benefit, bat. for the use of their customers, and they iind their business promoted by BO doing. A great variety of dwelling houses, costing from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, nre illustrated in each monthly number, besides a double page printed in colors, representing one or more handsome residences already built. After the design for the elevation or style of the house tins been s-j- lected, builders are enabled to give a close estimate of the cost of construction, as the working plans accompany the elevation. Most persona contemplating the building of a house or stable for their OWH use derive both pleasure and considerable saving, sometimes, by carefully considering at their leisure, and by their fireside, various designs and plans which may come before them. To enable a person to'come to a wise conclusion in such an important matter as building a home for his family, he will be wise if he brings the subject before his entire household.and studies carefully over in the domestic circle the style of house and the interior arrangements. It uot only*affords great pleasure to the entire family to be considered in the matter, but good suggestions will come from it, and mistakes will be les» likely to occur n the selection. By all means consult the wife and grown up'daughters, if so fortunate as to have them, and to this end everybody who contemplates building should provide himself with a complete flle of the Architect and Builder Edl tion of the Scientific American, some forty numbers, and then he will have at hand not only the best material to select his design from, but he will also llnd the i ubllcation useful and pro (Ha ble to refer to while the building is be ing constructed. If a person does hot nnd the design for a house, or other structure he con templates building, that suits his fancy or the estimate of the cost is too great in a single number of the publication he will be very sure to Iind iu some on of tho ether numbers Something ttm Nothing but a Sheet of Water.
