THE EVEOTKQ GAZETTE: WEDNESDAY, JANUARY, 18J1888. Frnra Jordan. j Rn . JR.—The clever account given in last weck'B GAZETTE ef the acdication of our new school house now known as •'Fairview" will not be spoiled by a synopsis of what was said on that Interesting occasion; but space admits the mention only of points seeming to us most important an* upon which the speaker built largely in substance severally as follows: Prof. Kirk:. "That the warming np'of a new house la often the beginning of a new life and a good time to resolve where there ia room to be bettered, and the flrst step that is planted in the wrong direction although taken with some strain of conscience, becomes easier by repetition and by degrees hardens us in wrongdoing." Prof. Harding: "That education grand as It is, and no matter how much we may receive, if not resting upon a moral foundation, too often becomes a dangerous accumulation." Prof. Bayliss: "That houesty is the best policy, because it Is right and if followed out on that Chris- -tirn principle, the other motto on the wall would need not have been written, for God would then blesa oar school without the asking." Ret. Brown: "That the proper dedication of a school house ia of much importance, being a link connecting the mother's knee with the Christian church, thus forming the chain which binds our moral natures." And the respondes all over the room from the many teachers present were the fljerous echoes bristling but from the one monster tap root culled morality, upon which the success of our great country with is wide spreading branches reaching melleniumward must depend. The several regular evening literary societies operating in Jordan fizzled out on the freeze last week, but the ladles' day meeting last Saturday in Penrose came off as usual. Now we venture a prophecy: In a dozen years from this date, our letters will tell you of the "Jordan Congress," which will be a united day gathering once a week of men and women of all socl°ties DOW a credit to our town. One of our Jordan lady farmers (Aunt Mattle, in fact) tells us it don't pay to cut up fodder bundles for feed if time and strength be counted. She says cattle If fed in clean mangers will pick the husks, tops and leaves clean. The stalks too will be eaten between mealaif they be liberally sprinkled with brine. Zack Heas and bis wife went to visit In Pjairleville with a smooth unshod team, and when Hearing Sugar Creek found the approaches to the bridge Very icy. Mrs. lless at once ordered the'horses cff and then satisfying her self that your correspondent wasn't near puther own strength lo the tongue and they were soon .over • the diffl- • oulty and on their way rejoicing. John Hey reports a beastly battle between his boss burly bull and big broad bucked boar, in which the latter re celved some severe summersault-toss- ings in the several first rounds, but finally the bellow and bloody eye of his antagonist showed teeth and tusks to be better weapons than horns, although they be attached to the boss butter of the yard. Uncle Jacob Harmas a tobacco user for perhaps the past seventy years, intends to wind up his days with a glean mouth, and Dougliss Deyo of North Jordan proposes to abandon the dirt on his next birth day, and also D. N. Foster and John Watson will 'cease smoking when their political ptfrty In platform so ceclares. Our kind old neighbor Isaac Burger was able to' be out and attend the transferring .of school district name from his own to that of Fairview at the dedication referred to above.

It IB a wild, romantic pot, and for many years Ita illence has ot been broken by an invader of any clnd. Near to the camp the Mamazekel river ilgzngs its way throngh tha quiet orest nntil It empties Its clear, cold water* ntothe more pretentious stream known i the Toblque. It was on the 1st of last August that tfr. C. James Conley, of the Adams house, nd his brother Jack, of New York, began uzzling their brains as to the best place n which to spend their vocation. They •ere bent on a fishing excursion, and •anted to find a place, if each a thing •ere possible, where the fly throwers did ot outnumber the speckles on the back of ach trout caught; and having settled the uestlou of destination they immediately egan to prepare for their long Journey. "'iBh poles, fish lines, two Winchester ifles, high topped boots, hunting salts, nd In fact everything necessary for a complete outfit for warfare on fin and eathera was procured and packed away In wo strong boxes, where they were to remain until the 'edge of civilization was cached on the line of their trip. There wore no special incidents during he-journey except the purchasing of a mall blrchbark canoe and the -emplpy- ent of three Indian guides to pilot the ourlsts through tho wilds of the New irunswlck forests. It was a long, tedious march the vacationists had decided upon, and led throngh miles of interlaced •anches of heavy brushwood, across roar- ng streams and over rocky eminences and Isnml valleys. In course of time the flsh- ng grounds were reached and the party went Into camp on the bank of tha Mania- ku* river. One ..morning Jimmy, with one of the ndlan guides, named Joe,startcd on a tour n their own,''hook." The guide carried he fishing tackle, while Jimmy shouldered ils Winchester and strapped on his game >ag. The little birch canoe, which has wen referred to heretofore, was moored In a shady nook In the stream. To this point he two turned their steps. The frail craft iraa boarded, and her prow pointed up the river. They had not gone far when their process was suddenly interrupted by a huge line tree that lay directly across their iath. As they were carrying the little )oat around the obstruction, on the western batik, tha eye of the Indian became luddenly riveted upon a number of pecu- Jarly shaped Imprints in the soft earth near a small poo), a few feet' above the prostrate tree. "What have yon found, Joe?" Inquired Jimmy, as he came around to where the Indian was standing. "Big bear; he drink hero; lookl" And 10 bent down and traced the outlines of 2ut Impressions In the" watery earth. "H* com* when the sun go down. He live over there," sold Joe, Indicating the locality with a motion of his head. "I am going to have that fellow's skin," were Jimmy's first words after the Indian lad finished. "We must Immediately set a work for it* capture. What a reputa- Jon I Bhall earn' when the boys see me wringing a black bear into camp," he mused. "They are not looking for ouch jome. I wish old bruin would hurry up and get thirsty. I can hardly control my feelings until he takes his nightcap." The banks of the stream at this point were about ten feet in height and com posed of a yellowish alluvial deposit. The 'ace of the declivities were rather steep, and knotted roots and vines covered the surface. After securing the canoe to the trunk of the tree they crossed to the opposite bank and began digging steps In the soil, so .that a hasty retreat could be eailly made If the shaggy monster which they were to make war upon took it into tils head to make a fight at close quarters. They were also careful to chop away the under branches of the tree, so that the weight of the animal—If he attempted to cross the river by that means—would drop Into the water. After completing these arrangement* the two men passed tho rest of the day In fishing and lounging about 'the immediate vicinity ot brain's watering place. Just as the sun began to dip behind the horizon Joe suggested that they take up position and watch' for their big game. Carefully concealing themselves beuinc the tree, they directed th'elr eyes to the little pool on - the opposite bank. They "bad not'been in hiding more than ten minutes* before Joe's delicate auricular apparatus detected a sound of crackling twigs and dead leaves In the direction the pair were looking. "He come, Mr. Jim," said the Indian as he listened Intently, while resting his bead upon the thick cushion of last year's fallen foliage. "Where, In what directlonf" eagerly asked Jimmy, as he eased the barrel o his rifle upon the tree and carefully ralset the hammer. "See, brush wave," responded Joe, am sure enough the thicket j«st to the left o the pool was being agitated to an unusual degree. Just.theu the body of one of th largest and finest specimens of a blocl bear ever seen in that locality emerge< from the brush, and bruin walket leisurely to his watering place. Jimmy's finger was on the trigger o his rifle In an Instant. His dream of glor was about to be realized. The excltcmcn of the occasion had nnsteadled his aim. Crack went the rifle, and when the smoke raised .both men peered over the tree U learn what execution had been done.' A» for as any evidence that bruin gave, h was ill as good form as at any time durin his life, lie paused in his libations for moment, looked over in the dlrcctlo whence the sound had como, and con tinned his refreshing draught. A second report ot Jimmy's rifle was heard, and this time old _,bruln felt th sting of the bullet, for ho uttered a pccu liar cry, lifted his nose from the watei and mopped out a route ou a direct Hn with his enemies. Ho meant serious bus ness, and hi* little black eyes soappe with the fire of rage. The hunters ha no desire to try a collar aud elbow wres ling match with their long clawed antagonist, and decided upon on Inglorious n treat The Indian, gained tho top ot th Neither of Hie lx>nr hunters s.iid n word .bout their experience. Jimmy was par- ictilarly nnxious to keep it from his coin- nnlons, as he did not want them to know hat his marksmanship was po poor that a could not brln« dowu game of snch mammoth proportions when only twenty iaces away. The next morning Jimmy went to Joe nd told him that he wan golncr out on nother bear bant The two repaired to he scene of their exciting battle of the ay bofo. e, crossed th« stream and made careful inspection of the locality. They ound a well worn trail leading from tho 300! through a piece of high grass, which ad been worn low by the bear In his fre- ucnt vislti to the place. "I am going to follow him to MB den," laid J'mmy. "I can't go back to Boston without making another effort to estab- sh a reputation as a bear hunter, when uch a splendid opportunity presented tsclf." They had followed the trail but a short Istance when tho Indian suddenly topped, and looking down at his pants, aw traces of blood upon them. "Bear dead," he said. "What's that?" eagerly replied Jimmy. "Bear dead," the Indian repeated. Jimmy could not believe his own ears. Tho bear-dead 1 O nol The news was too ;ood. It couldn't bo that he had actually tilled a bear—a real wild, black, shaggy jear. And yet there were the blades of grass smeared with the life current of the nlmal. The two pushed on for about a quarter f a mile, when they come to a little clearing, In the center of which there was pine tree. There was a clump of bushes ear Its base, where the trail suddenly crmlnated. Farting the branches, a most leasant sight was revealed to Jimmy and ils companion. Lying upon the Aground, llh his body bent in g half circle, lay xrar old bruin. His lifeQjUd flown just at lie threshold of bis homo. He hadn't ufflcient strength remaining when he cached his abode to climb to his snug uartets in the big pine tree. It was more i sorrow than exultation that Jimmy rent over the noble animal and gave his hlnlng coat a pitying stroke. After a hort consultation it was decided to remove the skin and carry it to camp. This he Indian did with great care, and when he trophy was shown to the boys Jimmy was voted tho greatest sportsman that hod visited that section for years.—Boston Globe. Lincoln and the Clergymen. On but one occasion that I can now ecall was Mr. Lincoln's habitual good lUmor visibly overtaxed by these well meaning but Impatient advisers. A committee of clergymen from the west called me day and the spokesman, fired with uncontrollable zeal, poured forth a lecture which was fault finding from beginning to end. It was dcllve'rod with much en- rgy, and the shortcomings of tho admin- stration were rehearsed with painful directness. The reverend orator made, some teen thrusts, -which evoked hearty np- ilause from other members of the com- nitteo. Mr. Lincoln's reply was a notable one. !Vlth unusual animation he said: "Gen- lemen, suppose all tho property yon pos- ess were in gold, and you had'placed it n tho hands of Blondia to carry across he Niagara river on a rope. With slow, jautlous, steady step he walks Iho rope, waring your all. Would you shako the cable and keep shouting to him: 'Blondin, stand up a little stralghtcrl Blon- dln, stoop a little morel Go n little faster!

Treatment of Heart Dlleaso. For generations tho main idea In the treatment of organic heart disease hog been physical rest to diminish tho labor of tho damaged organ. We have been in tho habit of prohibiting all forms of active labor to the sufferers from cardiac disease, and the principle of our treatment has been tho unexpressed but ever present Idea, acceptcd-as a self evident axiom, that perfect rest was the best means of securing muscular compensation. Professor Oertel's experiments and results have come with startling surprise upon those who forgot to distinguish between a useful principle and the exceptions which the multiformity of 'disease renders it Imperative to recognize. As is well known, he treats a considerable proportion of cases of organic heart disease by regulated exercise, especially gradn ated asccnts-of mountains, and his results place the value of his melhod beyond reasonable dispute. There Is nothing really surprising either in his treatment or the success which has attended It. A little reflection will suffice to convince vis that while" rest Is often, useful, and indeed quite indispensable, in heart disease, there are yet many cases In which well regulated exercise will Improve the nutrition of the cardiac muscle, as of the rest of tho muscular system, and hence tend to the promotion of circulatory vigor.—Medico] Record. Opinion* of a Chl«*»e Merchant. An expensively dressed man was at the Union depot in PHtsburg the other day. He was Law Joy Sun, a wealthy Chinese merchant of San Francisco, and was en route to the national capital to confer with the Chinese minister. His clothe! were a combination of silks, satins anc lace, and five large diamonds were substituted for buttons on his outer garments. When a reporter met htm he said he thought the act of congress prohibiting Chinese immigration was as beneficial ai It was wise and hoped It would be rigidly enforced. He thinks a law is needed rank ing the use ot opium a criminal act He said, as a rule, the worst elements among his countrymen emigrated to America If tho better clois would come they wouli roake good citizaus.—Chicago Times.

She pleaded her case so well that Beethoven, touched with her resignation—she aid not cry for vengeance, but submitted meekly—repented of his joke aud sent her some of his real venerable, which made her happy.
