HOT rhc NewSchool Text Work, Wr Book Bill will From the St. Paxil DKpatch There has been a general interest manifested since the close of the Leg islative session in the manner of car rying out the provisions of the bill for securing cheap text books to the schools of this State. The scheme was somewhat ex perimental in its nature,and some per sons have piofessed to doubt whether it could be made to work in practice. But the way seems now to have been smoothed for its operation, and all that remains to be done is, tor the officials charged with its execution, to perform their duty. The Dispatch, knowing the public desire for infor mation on the subject, has secured an interview with Mr. D. D. Merrill, and from him, and other sources, learned the following facts: The books to be supplied will be of the best quality. The names of the commissioners of revision is one suf ficient guaranty of that, and the self interest of the contractor is another guaranty. A poition, at least, of the b...

Oh tfifc evening of November 24th, Protessbrv Schmidt, director of the Athens Ob servatory, noticed there a.star oi the third magnitude. Not only was no star of that brightness there before, or any star visible to the naked eye, but it was found when catalogues and charts came to be examined, no star had ever been noted there, even in lists meant to include all stars down to the tenth magnitude. For instance, Argelander has made such a list, and charts from it, showing no less than 324,000 stars,—that is, a hundred times ad many as we can see on the darkest and clearest night yet his list showed no star where the new one had appear ed. Astronomers do not,however,sup pose the new star is really new, except in the sense oi being seen for the first time. They know that when last a new star appeared in that ...

THE GBANGE ADVANOE. WEDNESDAY. APRIL. 4,1877. H. H. YOUNG, EDITOR The Local Railroads. It is not, of course, a settled fact that a railroad will be built from St. Paul to Preston, cutting this county in two longitudinally, but the proba bilities of such an enterprise being attempted at an early day are suf ficiently strong to render it worth while to consider seriously what is likely to be its effect upon this city. It will not be denied that the pros perity of a city depends almost whol ly upon the territorial extent and wealth of the country commercially dependent upon it, and that it is, therefore, very important that every thing which can be clone should be to done hold in such dependency the area naturally tributary to it, and that all proper means to enlarge this dis trict should be availed of. Neither will it be disputed that the surest Vv'ay to retain and extend such tribu tary territory is to impiove and in crease its facilties fur pouring its products into and drawing its ...

He is a genius that has been known in all ages of the world but it has prob ably remained for the nineteenth centu ry and the year of our Lord 1877 to show him in all his wonderful develop ment, although it is just barely possi ble that he may make some progress yet, but we consider him now as per fect, or as nearly so as possible. We have seen the critter, as have all of our readers, but for the benefit of the rising generation we will describe him.

The railroad freight house land alljhe cars were swept away, leaving only thepassenger depot. The Stafford National Bank, Congregational church and about filteen other buildings have been washed away. The damage to the rail road tracJ* is very heavy. The flood came upon the village suddenly, and its effects have been disastrous. Three miles of rail road track are washed away.

The reservoir was about a mile and one quarter long, and averaged a quarter of a mile in width.

Snow fell in the town that winter to the depth of eight feet. Three of us were living in a cabin about half a mile out of town, near the head of Sour Krout Ravine. We were in the habit of spending our evenings in the town, or at the cabins of our brother miners, generally remaining from home till ten, eleven, or even as late as twelve o'clock. I happened to be in town the very first evening that the first great fall of snow began. I saw that the snow was coming down very fast, and knew, before starting home, that the trail would be hidden but this gave me no uneasiness, as I knew the course well, and could keep within a few rods of the trail the whole distance, if not in it. When I finally started homeward it was about 10o'clock,and there were six or eight inches of snow on the gr...

The Squire was standing in the mid dle of the sunny sitting-room—a room aglow with wreaths of autumn leaves and blossoming geraniums, with a wood fire on the hearth, which exalted a faint piny perfume from the resinous logs which were crackling there, and the biggest tortoise-shell cat in New Jersey asleep in front of the blaze. And the Squire's wife was balancing herself on tiptoe to sew a button on his shirt bosom—a malicious button which had llown olf without the slightest pre vious notice, a very Mephistopheles in motherol-pearl.

They went about twenty-five miles north-east of Fort Collins, and a few miles east ot Pierce Station on the Denver and Pacific Rail road. There thej made their head quarters. Within two miles of camp they never failed tofinda band of wild horses. Many along chase they had but they finally succeeded in capturing —ten head. A great many animals were seen. Some of them were very valua ble and Ueet of foot. Three head challenged the admiration of the en lire party. One was a black mare, large, well proportioned, and beautiful, and they chased her over forty miles, but couldn't catch her. With this fine mare was a colt which seemed to beGovernmentanow full blooded Norman. These two are certainly very valuable stock—if they could be captured. The other hoise was a dark stallion th...

TUB GBANGE ADVANOE. WEDNESDAY. APRIL. 11,1877. H. H. YOUNG, EDITOR Unemployed Labor. Would it not be well enough for intelligent people to give politics and other kindred subjects a rest, and turn their attention to the very important matter of providing relief for the unemployed labor force of the country And we do not mean, either, that they shall seek tor a solution of the question: What is the reason of this enforced idleness and consequent suffeiing It is of very little interest to those who are hungery and naked to be told why they are so. Bitter experience con vinces them of the fact of their de plorable condition and they are on ly anxious to find the remedy to learn how to get enough to eat and wear. It is not money or property they want, b'\t victuals and clothes. To us, the cause of this lack of employment seems plain enough, but we confess that it is exceeding ly difficult to discover a practical and adequate remedy. The only present remedy, the single means of of afford...

As I wrote you some time ago, I am making the attempt to raise a crop this year, but I do not feel any great degree of confidence in the matter at present. There are thousands of grasshoppers in this sec tion now and the ten acres of corn I have planted I rather suspect they will eat up entirely. They have not dam aged wheat yet to any great extent, and if the rascals do eat us out this year I will go north again and give Texas a wide birth in future.

Papa's Strange Guest. It was a warm uue_ evening, aud my father and mother and I were seat ed in our drawing room, with the long doors leading on to the lawn thrown open, to admit the air. I was sitting at my bureau, examining some of my jewelry, which I kept there, when the door opened, and M. Menton (friend of my father's staying with us at the time) entered. He was a French Canadian, rather a line-looking man, but a man I never liked there was a look in his black, beady eyes which, to me, was at once repulsive and distrustful. He looked furiously at me, and approached. "Mademoiselle is busy he asked. "Yes," I replied shortly. My father and mother had dropped asleep, so, much to my disgust, M. Menton took up his station on a chair by my side. I say disgust, because loathed the man his politeness always seemed to me unreal. "Mademoiselle has some fine jewels," he remarked, presently taking between his finger and thumb a handsome brooch and rubies." "All of this jewelry is not mine,...

VOL. IV. —Union Spy at Lake City, post poned until Tuesday next. —The Louisiana troubles are ap parently no nearer a settlement than they were a week ago. The Yich ols party is demanding more than the really conservative and well dis posed members of the commission believe it right to concede, and by their folly they are strengthening the Packard party. In the mean time the absurd conduct of the Nichols men, in receiving with loud plaudits of welcome the scallawags who abandon Packard, and in giv ing them responsible and honora ble positions in their governmental organization, does not look well. These men are just as mean now as they were when they trained with the Packard crew, or, perhaps, a little meaner, and in receiving them as they do the democrats give the lie to all they have said against them. The fact is the entire crowd of Louisiana politicians, with hardly an exception, ought to be wearing striped clothes and serving the State in its penitentiary, and the sooner the peo...
