Geneva Seed a Paper, The time has come when every man of thought, business or enterprise feels that our village needs a large, loyal, wideawake weekly paper, and is, we trust, refftiy to sustain an effort in that directi 0. Geneva needs a paper to place her on a proper footing with Delavan, Elkhorn, Burlington, and other neighboring towns, wfcce equal she is in enterprise, good society, public institutions, attractive scenery, wealthy and public-spirited men, as well as numbering about the same in populate ;n. O r town contains 2,042 inhabitants, poss ssing more than the average wealth of Vi icconsin towns; she has five churches; a large, costly and inviting public school builuing, well graded schools, including a Ili oh School, now carrying out a complete three years Academic Scientific course of study; an ably-managed and flour .ihinz Ladies Seminary, situated on a bemtiful, healthful and commanding site, overlooking a crystal lake nine miles in lei gth, and from one to three in width; two ( Id and well-known private schools, nnde: the successful management of college i gat hers, besides several educational orgar izations, among which are two I)e-batin ; Lyceums, two public libraries, reading circle and reading rooms; an old and s ifely-eonducted bank still in the hand- of its former faithful President; a railr iad, telegraph office, wool and flour mills, vinegar manufactory, twenty-five tores hardware, drugs, drygoods, boots and shoes, jewelry, books, confectionery, etc.pli jtols, restaurants, liveries, wagon and bl icksmith shops, ministers, lawyers, doctors, teachers, speculators, merchants, barbers, farmers, photographers, tailors, butchers, cordwaincrs, fishermen, etc., and yc c all without a home jvajicr. GENEVA NEEDS A DATEH To rep eent and properly advertise her attractive features, that property may increase i i value, business improve, and despon ling men be hopeful. A pa or well managed could and would be the means of bringing to the notice of wealthy men the superior inducements this tow n presents over many of greater reputat ins, but really not equal to Geneva in at Tractions. Many a wealthy man retires f r a country home into a les- inviting village than ours, who might have been hr aught here if its true circumstances had been known to him. Many men in Chicago would have had residence! ere before the fire had our rural attracts ns been fairly represented by a good pa er, and the number each summer would 1 much larger, if our summer plensurt s were generally advertised, and although the accommodations may not be ns satiLctory as Saratoga, one tiling is sure, supply and demand will regulate themselves, and if our number of city I visitors ould be increased largely, a cor- respond ng increase in accommodations would f How In the form of hotels ami boarding houses, fishing apparatus, boat-renting, etc. We are within three hours ride of Chicago. au I no town on the route is so likely to draw mt business men to get summer hours. Our village, too, contains good waterpower, ni.d might just as well be supplying a hundred hands with work as nt.

We believe Geneva is behind the the times without a raPer am are willing to give her a good one on reasonable terms one that will continually commend itself to the good Judgment of all readers. All we ask is your prompt, unfaltering support m a project wdiicli will add more to your own interests than to those who manage it, at least for the first year; but having implicit faith la the hopeful outlook of Geneva prospects, as stated above, we expect a larger patronage each year of successful management, and, therefore, ultimately expect it will prove a paying institution. ltd terms are i f2.00 per year, or in advance. torGhe, by the light of which he could see the boys crowded on the sled, yelling and shouting, and apparently unconscious of his being in their Avay. So great was the velocity of the sled that before Mr. Groff could get out of the way it dashed directly into ilie plunging horses. The collision was terrific. Some of tile boys were thrown clear oyer the sleigh, several feet down the hill. The most of them, however, wrere piled in a heap among the wreck of the sleighs and horses. One lad lived only a few seconds after being picked up. Several were rendered insensible, being dangerously injured, and all were more or less hurt. One of the horses was killed. FACTS AND FIGURES.

The etching remained for a day "or two, perhaps more, the sun shining full upon it every morning. A thaw came, and the frost disappeared.

IL'rtjarJ ( I was home again, in San Francisco, without means and without employment. I tortured my brain for a saving scheme of some kind, and at last a jiublic lecture occurred to me'! I sat down and wrote one in a fever of anticipation. I showed it to several friends, but they all shook their heads. They said nobody would come to hear me, and I would make a humiliating failure of it. They said that as I had never spoken in jniblic I would break down in the delivery, anyhow. I was disconsolate now. But at last an editor slapped me on tlie back and told mo to He -ajd, Take tlie largest house in town, and charge a dollar a ticket. The audacity of the proposi tion was charming ; it seemed fraught with practical worldly wisdom, however. The proprietor of tlie several theatres endorsed the advice, and said I might have his handsome new opera house at. half price fifty dollars. In sheer desperation I took it on credit, for sufficient reasons. In three days I did a hundred and fifty dollars worth of printing and advertising, and was. tlie most distressed and frightened creature on tlie Pacific coast. I could not sleep n1io could under such circumstances ? For other people there Nvas facetiousness in the line of my posters, hut to me it was plaintive with a Jiang when I wrote it : Doors open at oclock. The trouble will begin at 8. That line has done good service since. I have seen it ajipended to a liewsjiajiu advertisement, reminding school jnquls in vacation wlml time next term would begin. As those three days of suspense dragged by I grew more and more tin-lnippy. I hail sold two hundred tickets among my personal friends, hut I feared they might not come. My lecture, which had seemed humorous to me at first, grew steadily more and more dreary, till not a vestige of fun seemed left, and I grieved that I could not bring a coffin on the stage and turn the thing into a funeral. I was so jianic stricken at last that I went to three old friends, giants in stature, cordial by nature, and stormy-voiced, and said: This thing is going to he a failure; tlie jokes in it are so dim that nobody will ever see them. I would like to have you sit in the parquette and help me through. They said they would. Then I went to the wife of a popular citizen, and said that if she was willing to do me a ver great kindness I would be glad if she and her husband would sit jiromincntiy in the left hand stage box, where tlie whole house could sec them. I exjdained that I should need help, and would turn toward-hcr and smile, as a signal, when I had been delivered of an obscure joke and then, I answered, dont wait to investigate, hut resjiond! She jiromiscd. I town the street I met a man I had never seen before. He had been drinking, find was beaming with smiles and good nature. lie said : My name is Sawyer. You don't know me, lmt that dont matter. I havent got a cent, lmt if yon knew how bad I w anted to laugh, youd give me a ticket. Come, now, what do you say? Is you laugh hung on a hair-trigger ? tliat is, is it critical, or can it git off easy ? My drawling infirmity of speech so af fecteil him that he laughed a specimen or two, that struck me as being about the article I xvanted, and I gave him a ticket, and ajNjiointcd him to sit in the second circle, in the center, and be responsible for that division of the house. I gave him minute instructions about Lonv to detect indistinct jokes, and then went away and left him chuckling placidly over the novelty of the idea. I ate nothing on the last three eventful days I only suffered. I had advertised that on the third day the office would be opened for the sale of reserved seats. I crept down to tlie theater at four in the afternoon, to see if any sales had been made. The ticket-seller was gene; the box-office wa- locked up, I luul$, to -wallow suddenly or my heart would have got out. No sales, I said to myself. - I might have known it. I thought of suicide, pretended illness, flight. I thought of these tilings in earnest, for I was cry miserable and seared. But of cour-e I had to drive them away, and prepareto meet my fate. I could not wait for lia'f-pa-t seven; I wanted to face the horror and end it the feeling of manv a man doomed to he hung, no doubt. 1 w'ent dolfrii.a back street at six oclock, find entered the theatre by the back door. I stumbled my way in the dark am&ng tji8 ranks of banrias scenery and stood on the stage. The house was gloomy and silent, and its emptiness depressing. I went into the dark among tlie scenes again, and for an hour and a half gave myself up to the horrors, wholly unconscious of everything else. Then I heard a murmur; it rose higher and higher, and ended in a crash, mingled with cheers. It fnadh my lidir riSe; it was so close to me and so loud. There was a pause, and then another; presently came a third, and before I well knew what I was about I xvas intlie middle of the stage, staring at a sea of faces, bewildered by the fierce glai e of lights, and quaking in every limb with a terror that seemed like to take my life away. The house was full aisle and all ! The tumult in my heart, and brain, and legs continued a full minute before I could gain any command over myself. Then 1 recognized the charity, and the friendlinbsslu the faces before me, and little by little my fright melted away, and I beg tin to talk. Within three or four minutes I was comfortable, and even content. My three chief allies, with three auxiliaries, were on hand, in the parquet te, all sitting together, all armed w ith bludgeons, and ready to make an onslaught on the feeblest joke that might show its head. And w henever a joke did fall, their bludgeons came doNvn and tlieir faces seemed sjolit from ear to ear. Sawyer, whose hearty countenance was seen looming redly in tlie center of tlie second circle, took it up, and the house was carried handsomely. Inferior jokes never fared so royally before. Presently I delivered a bit of serious matter, with impressive unctioii (it was my pet), and the audience listened with an ab-: sorbed liusli that gratified me more than any applause; and as I dropped tlie last word of the clause I hapjiened to turn and catch Mrs. s intent and waiting eve: my conversation witli her Hashed ujnoiI me, and in Spite of all I could do I smiled. She took it for the signal, and promptly delivered a mellow laugh that touched off tlie whole audience, and the cxjilosion that followed was tlie triumph of tlie evening! I thought that that honest man Sawyer would choke himself; and as for tlie bludgeons, they jierfonned like pile-drivers. But my poor lit tic morsel of jiatlios was ruined. It was taken in good faith as an intentional joke, and tlie prize one of the entertainment; and I wisely let it go at that. All the pajiers were kind in the morning; my ajipetite returned; I had abundance ot money. Alls well that ends well. Platform of tlie National Labor Re form Party.

That the j'rotcction of life, liberty and property arc tlie three cardinal prim ijdcs of government, and thetir-ttwo more sacred than the latter; therefore the n oney nccc--ary for ju oseent ing war- should, a- it i- re-J'aid, he a--e eil and collected from the wealth of the country, and not entailed a- a burden for jo-terity. 10. That it is the duty of the Government to exercise its power over railroad- and telegraph corporation-, and that they -hall not. in any ea-e, be privileged to exact such rates of freight transportation or charges, by whatsoever name, as may bear unilulv or unequally upon either producer or consumer. 11. That, as both hi-tory and exqverience teach us that power ever seek- to perjetuate itself by any and by all mean- at its command, and that its jvrolonged jio--.e-sion in the hands of one person is always dangerous to the liberties of the people; and believing, too, that the spirit of our organic laws and the stability of our institutions are best obeyed on the one hand and seen red on the other by a regular constitutional change in the Chief Executive of the country at each quadrennial election; therefore wc are in favor of limiting the oeeujtancy o' the Presidential chair to one term. 12. That fitness, and not politic il or personal considerations should be the only recommendation to public office, either appointive or elective, and any or all laws looking to the establishment of this principle are heartily approved. 15.

UEUtFES ETC Wlien a carpet is taken tip to be Cleaned, thfe floof bteueath it is generally covered with dust. This dust is very fine and dry and poisonous to the lungs. Before removing it, Sprinkle the floor with very dilute carbolic acid, to kill any jvois-onous germs that may be present, and to thoroughly disinfect the floor and render it sweet. On good authority it is promulgated abroad that tWo drops of turpentine oil in a little milk is a complete antidote to phosphorous poison. Children not un frequently bite off' tlie charged end of jilios-phoric" matches and swallow them. It is stated that a girl was recently saved in England who had actually eight of them in her stomach, by this newly-discovered remedy. A griddle for baking should never be greasecq as this destroys the delicate flavor of the cakes. Scour well with a cloth and sand, and wash with hot suds, w ipe dry, and just before baking rub with a coarse cloth and salt. It is not neces-ary to Wash and scour it every time it i-wanted; only once, to get ail the grease out; but use the cloth and salt every time you put on fresh cakes, just as the grease would be used. A Good Healing Salve. Take of i sin, beeswax and Castile soajv. one jvart each; two parts mutton tallow; throe ol lard; dissolve all slowly together. Tlii-salve is used a great deal by people here, w lio jirefer making such articles them selves to jvaying five times what they are worth. For my part, I could not do without it in my family. For a cut joint, Orleans molas'ses or syrup (never sorghum) should be used instead of tlie tallow and lard. Cor. llural Aeic Yorker. Mince Pies.

In other cases, when attempts are made to lead such animals about, they run forward, plunge, strike against any obstacle, roar, moan, grunt in breathing, and appear to suffer acutely if touched or disturbed. In other words, tfith the impactions of third stomach,- which is the essential lesion of the disease, whether induced by smutty stalks, old indigestible stalks tlia't have no smut, or other kind of food or poison, there are two distinct conditions induced the one of stupor, liMlessness. vertigo, ami depression of sjiirits, indicated by the animals standing sullenly until they drop or are relieved; the second is a state of exquisite sen-itiveness, a liyperivtliesia of the skin and system gen-allv . The animals are not only excited but in a state of actual suffering, and die very suddenly in a state of coma or in eonvul-ions. The di-ease doc- not last long. I hare seen an animal linger on four or five day-, liut usually the" whole course of the malady i run in twenty-four to forty-eight hours. An animal first seem-to show eo-tivene-s. with a div muciK bur the scanty excrement ; and, although apparently undi-tnrbec. and even feeding, may be dead in twelve to twenty-four hour-. The ciiagno-i- of tlie di-ea-e at an early jveriod of its manife-tation- is tin re-fore impot taut, and it re-ts on the knowledge cif the manner in which niitnd-liave been tri ated and fed (H- the -imul-tancous attack of several animal- sl.ow-y anil e-jiecially on the ob-m-x atioi - of a fact that I have usually no.icel. that tlie animal- which have eaten mo-t ravemm--y have been the first and mo-t -evil-affei-ted. Did cattle may som. tmu"-avoid the -mutt food, and young aura b-eat heartily: the latter will be found the only one- to die. Feeding Smutty Corn Straw. and Ru-tv Even year, says the lUo'iin llural, more or less cattle become di-ca-ed from eating tlie smutty ears of cun left in the field at hu-king lime; and, in winter, from feeding upon rusty straw, much evil results. Among the diseases which came under tlie notice of Professor Gamgeo, tlie English veterinarian, who was cin-jilovedby the Commission of Agriculture of the -I nited States u investigate the sjdenic or Texas flyer in i attic, is a roj'ort (only just published) m the HI Effects of Smut. Ai cording to tin-analysis eif Dulon;, given in the Journal dt Pharmaric , lie found smut to contain a material similar to fungine, a material allied to o-mazone, a nitrogenous substance, a fatty matter, a waxy matter, acids, a brow n coloring matter, a free organic acid, and combinations of thi-acid with magne-ia and pota.-li; lastly, ho found phosjdiate, muriate and suljihale of jvota-li, sulijiliosjviiate of lime, sal ammoniac, and oxide of iren: it contained no starch. Tlie eomlu-ion arrived at was that tlie evident tendem v was o derange the alimentary canal in 1h fiist j'lace, then to disturb tlie jiroi c-s f nutrition or assimilation; and, la-l!v, to excite tin emunetnries for tin di-i barge of noxious jvrini ijile-, more jat t icuiarl v by inducing an cxce-sivc seen tion of mine, r by diarrhea.
