Shame of poverty makes some persons launch Into vain expense and lavisb entertainments. Fear of poverty makes others allow themselves only the plain necessaries. Shame of poverty makes the former go every day a step nearer to it, and fear of poverty furnishes the incentive that removes the latter eyery day further from It. These different motives produce the extremes which n en are guilty of in tbe negligence ot and provision for themselves. Usury, stock jobbing and all forms of greed, extortion and oppression, have their seed in the dread of want; and vanity, riot and prodigality, from the shame ot it. Both are Infinitely below tbe pursuit of a reasonable man. After we baye provided ourselves with the necessary things and conditions for a comfortable and happy life, strife for tbe superfluities Is a vice no loss extravagant than the neglect of necessaries would have been before.

Handwork, a son ot Ambrose Uandwerk, one of tbe early settlers of this county, residing about eight miles up tbe South Sappa, was killed under peculiarly distressing circumstances, Tbe boy was raking oyer a stubblo field with a team attached to a two horse bay rake. His little sister took blm a lunch and some water, and she, though badly frightened, stated tbat when be had drank what water he wished, be tbrew the remainder onto one of the horses (a joung animal) and that they jumpcdJ geei were tlie gl.ettt 8tackB of wueat ,nd throwing tbe boy forword in front of thetuegreonfieiU8 0f corn tbat presented an ever changing, but never ending pic rake teeth and be was dragged about two hundred yards. The little girl ran to tbe house and told that the horses had run away. Vben the boy was found be was dead and badly mutilated. His skull was broken in over tbe left eye, supposed to haye been done by a kick, and bis face and head wero badly mutilated, supposed to have been doue by the rake teeth. Joseph U. Uandwerk was born March 13. 18S0, and was therefore 12 years, 5 months and 1 day old. He was buried In the Catholic cemetery near Dresden, Saturday, Aug. 20. He was a bright, industrious boy, and the oldest child. The family has the sympathy of ail their neighbors, in this, their very sad bereavement Patrick Turney, of whom mention was oiade last week as having been hurt by falling from a load of grain on the tines of a fork, died at the Commercial Hotel last Friday morning, His death resulted from internal bleeding, one of the tines of the fork haying penetrated his abdomen. A post mortem was held to find tbe full extent ot tbe injuries. It was found that the tine had penetrated through into tbe abdomen and scraped the intestines. A great deal ot blood was found Inside, lie was on old sol dier, having been a member of Co. "," 3d Vermont Infantry, and was buried according to the ritual, by the G. A. It. post of this place. He bad no relatives in this part of the country, and but tew acquaintances. The funeral was held on Saturday at 2 p. m., and was attended by the post. W. R. C. and by a large mini ber, who wished to show their respect to one ot tbe brave defenders of bis country, although an entire stranger to them. Rev. Waggener, an old soldier, preached the funeral sermon. He was burled in the soldiers lot in our beautiful cemetery. Long Island (Kan.) Leader. Alliance Picnic. Last Saturday morning, in company with Q. O. Johnson, A. C. T. Geiger, John Shields and J. C. Frewen, The Her. ald editor droye out to Bassettville to attend the picnic at that place. The splendid rain Friday night had given n cool, invigorating effect to the air. it It did make the mads on the start heavy and slippery. We drove out up the creek and along the valley of the South Fork of tbe Sappa. All along the road could be seen great stacks of grain and fields of green, waving corn, to which the shower bad given new lustre and the assurance ot a splendid crop. The South Sappa valley is rich in picturesque scen ery and full of romantic history. Every mile of the road possessed some special historical interest, that would iurnlsb material tor a hook of particular interest or foundation lor a dozen novelettes. When nearing the picnic grounds, teams could be seen coming from every direction, telling the mute story that the farmers had laid aside the cares and busy toil of the farm, to meet and discuss the questions to them of equally great importance, as that of raising a big crop, how to prevent the fruits of their toil from being absorbed by those "who toil not, neither do they spin," and to retain a part at least ot the great wealth they produce. The meeting was held in a beautiful grove on the farm of S. M. Weston, about two miles south-west of Bassettville. The forenoon was passed in social chat, songs and a general good time. The" dinner hour came, and little groups gathered here aad there (to par take of Lount ifiil repasts, such as is yielded up by mother earth in a fruitful and bountiful harvest, and prepared by the careful bands ot the good wives, daughters and sweetheorts. After the dinner was over the audience was called to order by 8, M. Weston. A prayer was offered by Dan Caster, a song was sung and A. C. T. Geiger delivered a splendid speech on questions ot finance, that was unanswerable, and showed that Mr. Geiger had given the great questions at issue deep study. Another son-j. when 1. K. Uuber. of Ilawkeye. was in'ro- duced. and talked a few moments in a very happy mnnner, that kept the audience in a good humor and at tbe same They're "just as smoov." Chicago Lumber Co. lime gaye them something to think about. Another song, and J. C. Wilson was then Introduced and gave an Interesting and original talk on corporations and the power of monopoly to oppress tbe people, and the remedy for the evils tbat exist, followed by another song, when J. E. Doom made a tew very ap proprlate remarks, and tbe meeting ad Journed, tbe best ot feeling prevailing. The crowd was about twice as large as tbe alliance meeting at Miller's grove on North Sappa, in 1800, and showed tbat tbe people were becoming more la terested in the discussion of economic questions. Taken all together, It was a good meeting. We drove down tbe dl- Vide, between tbe two Sappas, on the way home, and as far as the eye could ture of magnificent proportions and grandeur. We belie vo all went away feeling that it was good to have .been there. Tbe Denver papers bring tbe news tbat Mrs. C. E. Guy has gone to the borne of her father, and that Charlie has proven recreant to his trust.
