Dr. Seymour spent the Fourth in Fort Wayne. The wheat is about all cut in this neighborhood. The Springfield "Gray Eagle" laid down and died. Aleck Piatt, of Trufant, Michigan, is in this vicinity. The Fourth passed off very quietly in our town—not even a dog tight Zeke Nowells, of LaGrange, was perambulating on our streets one day last week. Some of om- soldier boys have been already mustered into tiie G. A. R. Post at Ligonier. John Jones took in the Fourth, but a great many surmised that the Fourth took him in. Blaine and Logan are bound to get there, Eli. Let 'em trot out their best timber. Shoo fly. A great many took advantage of the railroad rates on the Fourth, and came and went for one fare. There are a few females in our town who want to be called pet names just as though they were pretty. Mummert's saw-mill is shut down and will probably remain shut down until after the big doings at Rome City. Everybody ought to know by this time that Jim Piatt is a"hoss-trader." If not it is their own fault This thing of making a fair and square trade and then turning around and squealing is what you might call boys' play. Mrs. Sognfrey died very suddenly on Wednesday night of last week The deceased lived in Toledo, Ohio, and had been here about one week visiting relatives. She was buried in the Springfield cemetery on Friday, the 4th inst Bleeding of the lungs was tbe cause of her death. 1IIO& L N. TAYLOR, Sole Agent, 10 E.

New Era.—I believe I will venture once more to reach my friends through the columns of your valuable paper if you will permit me to do so. By the way, if any of your readers think they do not get the worth of the money they pay for The Era, let them go from home and among strangers and do without it one week —^just one—and they will know its value. But do you know that I feel as proud as a boy with a pair of new boots with red tops and copper toes when I hear friends praise The Era, and compare it with tiieir own county papers, which, by the way, are good, but The Era, I think, far better. We spent the. greater portion of last week in Madison, the capitol of the state. When we stopped there on our way out, we were tired, and not feeling very well did not see as much of the city as I desired, and resolued to pay it another visit on our way home. But as it cleared up so cool and pleasant after the thunder and rain of Monday, we thought we could not find a better time, and as we had no chickens to feed, no cows to milk or pigs to slop, to resolve was to do. Soon the morning of June 25, we were away as fast as the iron horse cound draw us, and in little less than two hours we were in the capitol city of Wisconsin—a city of about 12,500. Small, it is true, but one of the most picturesque and lovely in the west. madison is built on a peninsula between lakes Mendota on the northeast and Meno-na on the southwest, two as beautiful bodies of water as can be found on the continent The peninsula was originally covered with a very dense growth of timber, and as only just enough has been removed to give room for the streets and buildings, the city has the appearance of a "Fairy city' in a native wood." The capitol is built in a beautiful grove containing 14 acres and 7 rods, enclosed with a good, substantial iron fence, and having numerous shady walks and cool, sparkling fountains. Tha capitol is of white sandstone, is 258^ feet from east to west, 3011 feet from north to south, and 2221 ft high from basement pavement to the eagle perched on top of dome. A spiral stair winds from basement to dome 208 ft. in height, from which a splendid view of the city and surrounding country is had. From this height is seen the state farm and University buildings, the Insane Asylum, the Soldiers'Orphans' Home, the Cemetery,the lakes,and rich valleys covered with bountiful crops of wheat, rye, oats, corn, and barley waving in the summer breeze. In the halls of the capitol on the east of the rotunda, and looking to the east, perched with half-spread pinions and with arched neck, is "Old Abe," the dead war eagle of the 8th Wisconsin Regiment In the glass case in which is preserved the remains of this "old hero of the war,"—the most noted bird of his species—is this inscription: "Old Abe, the war eagle, hatched Feb., 1861. Died March 28, 1881." The historical room contains many rare and curious thing8,but I cannot enumerate, much less describe them. I will, however, simply mention the "color room," in which are stored the battle-flags of the Wisconsin volunteers. The most noted of them is that of the 6th from which every star has been shot away! But why should I attempt to describe these battle-scarred, smoke-begrimmed old flags ? Their history is the history of our whole united country. Each one was borne by gallant hands, and many are yet stained by the life-blood of the brave boys that gave their lives that we might enjoy the blessings of a free, united people, cemented by i|he blood of our soldier boys on more than a hundred battle fields! It is just a month this morning since I left home, and during that time I have constantly mingled with the people of the state from the governor and state officers to the farmer, the mechanic, the tradesman and the day laborer, and I must say that in all my life I have never seen so quiet, so orderly, so contented a people. The contrast is so striking between the people of all classes in this state and those of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebrfiska and Kansas. In each of the latter there is that everlasting 8cx;^tmble, and rush, and hurry, and jolting foi^ place, and power, and wealth—no time for rest, or enjoyment, or pleasure, or quiet thought The merchant ro^es past you like a wedtem cydone, as though his wlude future huiig on the sim^e fact of his reaching er failing to reach the corner of the next block in the shortest time possible. The mechanic must complete his task to-day so as to be ready for a still harder one to-morrow. The farmer must plow his corn today, cut his grass to-morrow,and commence harvesting his wheat the day after, and so the rush goes on from year to year. No time for rest, or recreation or pleasure, and at 40, when they should be in the prime of life and manhood, they suddenly awake to the fact that they are old, decrepid, broken-down men, unable to enjoy the common comforts of life, and after a few more years of fitful, feverish strife, they sink into a premature grave, thankful that they can there find rest at last. But here you see nothing of this hurry, and rush, and scramble. Men seem to live to enjoy life. They have plenty of time to visit, to rest, and for recreation and social comfort. But this is as far from the lazy shift-lessness, the "don't give a damn" indifference of the South, as it is from the restlessness of the states I have named. There is no carelessness or indifference about it; it is rather a confidence, born of self-reliance, and a perfect, conscious, innate strength —the determination to conquer every difficulty that gave the "Old Iron Brigade" its immortal distinction in an army composed of 200,000 heroes! the cemi.tery. Until my first visit to the cemetery, the only objection I could see to the city was its beauty, but I find that Yankee ingenuity, German patience and ^Jgality, combined with Irish wit have overcome even this, and have made this consecrated spot so quiet, so peaceful and yet so beautiful that even the dwellers of the "City of the Lakes" may not be unwilling to become citizens of the more beautiful "City of^the Dead." On the east side of the cemetery and overlooking Lake Menona—something more than a mile away—is the spot of most interest to th« stranger. It is the last resting place of 210 of Wisconsin's dead heroes. Enclosed by a neat, iron fence is a grassy plot including about two acres, in which are buried those Wisconsin troops who died of wounds, or disease, at Camp Johnson. Each grave is marked by a white, marble slab, on which is engraved the name, regiment and date of death of the hero. On each of the 210 headstones were yet remaining the wreaths of flowers and laurel entwined by, and placed upon by, the little loving hands of the children of the Soldiers' Orphans' Home on Decoration Day. The flowers have withered and faded—the laurel has been changed by sun, and rain, and dew, from its bright green to sombre brown, but the memory of their noble deeds shall never fade. iREMOmiP "They sleep their last sleep ; They have fought their last battle; No sound shall awake them to glory again.' Though their names may never be enrolled on the pages of their country's history, yet the memory of their noble deeds shall remain graven on the hearts of a grateful people. "By fairy hands their knell is riuig: By forms unseen their dirge is sung?' "We tell thy doom without a sigh. For thou art Freedom's now, and Fame's; Among the tew, the immortal names. That were not born to die." Nathan Niles. I will move my stock of Hardware into the room in Clapp's Block of BM ol Ml, Let all my old Customers and others remember the place and give me a call. J, D.
