4s. mi, IKJHT FANTASTIC TOK. We take (rrent ploaxure, indeed, lu wrilii" up our New Year foslivitiis; inasmuch ijuito niiinliur oi' knowing one had predicted that 'the bull" won bo a failure, and it would bo impossible to maintain good ardor, prevent profanity, Hinokii), boisterous talk, low jdtiiir light re mark, which ha boon tho rulu, instead of the exception, heretofore. And, while wo rt'jjrot that such has been tliB chha, it is with commensurate piido that wo chronicle the fuct thai tlio Now-Year bull, January 1, 1H81, van the very hunt dance and the mont orderly affair of tin; kind that ever given in Havens. Everybody Was supremely happy, sociable, and seemingly bunt on having a good time.

The company was, perhaps, an select nil ever met in the county, and one could hear on every hand, "uiil't we having a lowly time and ce-taiuly "joy was unoonlincd," und everyone "wan happy as a marriage boll." We announced In last week's Inhk-I'enpent that tlio dance would be orderly and select, und as a result, the hall was graced by the beauty and talent of the surrounding community and anon you might hear someone exclaim, "let the dance go on." And it did go on Happily the management selected the acknowledged champion floor manager of the whole country, Mr. Eddy Kepler, who has not a peer in this line in Pottawatomie county. At early candle lighting the mm-iciaus were in their respective positions, and when the sweet strains music filled the hall eight couple of ladies and gentlemen "formed on," and the command "honors all" was ladies courtesied and gentlemen bowed low, with grace that Wi uld have done honor to a French dancing mnftei then all join h-uids mi ciicle, and mazy nieslie.t of tlio dance were organized. Lads and lassies, with commendable zest, danced till the wee nmn hnurn, when supper 'ws-s announced, everybody repairing the Oreal Western hotel to partake of the least prepared, by mine host, Mr. Rhinbarger, vlr is gaining a reputation as a successful caterer to public tastes.

Oyster, cold meats and fruits of every description were served, together with tea and coffee; and everyone was made to cry enough." Bright, sparkling bewitching in the extreme, with complexions of roseate hue and ruby lips, dispensed soul enrapturing glances and sharp, witty, fun-provoking reparte, and with it all, hearts throbbed loud aud hopes beat and we doubt not loves were plighted, affections cemented and friendships renewed, that in lie year to come will look back to the New-Year ball in Ilavens as the auspicious occasion that revealod to, them their happy destiny. Quite a puniber of gentlemen were present from Soldier and other places, among whom we noticed Mr. Rube Francis, that pr.nce of good fellows and ideal geutlcman, and Mr. McM alien, of St. CI re.

Mr. Tattershfill led in the music, assisted by a gentleman whose name we did no! learn. Everybody coincided in a vote ot thanks to Mr. John Farley for his entertainment, aud everyone wants to meet next week to try it again. AMERICA CITY NOTES.

Pecemiikk 29. 1880; Editor Independent As I have read The InojSpkkde.vt with pleasure since late arrival in this state, I apprehend, as it is now the holidays and editors, like all sentient beings, enjoy a little recreation Once in a year, jt will not be amiss to contribute a few words to the excellent little visi or of every household with which" the writer bas had the pleasure of associating. Before 1 left my nativity, I was frequently admonished that I would meet many "roughs," as they are termed in the westu rn country and, with this premonition somewhat impressed on my mind, of course, scrutinized everything very closely not only men, but local periodicals and am pleased to gay the idea that the sun of enlightenment has never shed a ray ou the "Happy limiting Grounds," where now dwell thous-adds from all parts of the U. as well as other continents, is entirely obliterated.

Mason took the enve'opo from the tapering lingers, snd, slowly lirenk ing it open, again begged the lady to be seated. The ooptents of the letter ran thus: "My Dear Friend, Henry: "The bearer of this note is much in need of employment, and I (rust you will find something for hor at onoe I need not say thnt she ifl a lady, a lu-i manners aud appearance p'linli indicate that. cimic from a line I'm ily, which has nut with river-e- make it lu-ceKKnry for hert ib peml her.s-n iodivid.nil i-ttoNH.

Mr. Seymour, in a mild voice, plied that he thought not, hut, a-- eyes caught tho imploring look i me waning girl, said mat lu would make room somehow. Thereupon, the foreman returned lu his duties.

Miss Nellie Ruthve.ii (for that -the name she cave) was immcdinteh engaged by the gentlemanly junioV partner, who bade her come in ilv morning. It would be untrue to say that Neil i. Remington went to her work with light heart, but she did go to it will thanksgiving and a murmured pni. i She had secured lodgings in an im pretentious boarding house, presided over byan elderly matrou by the num. of Johnson, whose countenanoe sin manner were indicative of strong minded proclivities.

"Miss Ruthvon," she said, with i-spaoious amile, as, for tho sum of foo dollars weekly, she bound the am Borry you have no recommend tion, but, as you are away from bom and in a strange place, I will not pr-the matter. 1 doubt not but you conform to the rules of my humi. place."

"Don't misunderstand me I only mention this because in tin place so many girls are employed am some of them turn out so But then, I know it is all right." There was a feeling of anger withn Nellie Remington's breast whioh sin could scarcely express.

The insinua tion of Mrs. Johnson gave her a desin to answer cuttingly. Horace Remington's child was now to find a harder path before her than she could have possibly anticipated, but she was determined to meet the difficulties at least half way. When she retired to rest after the first day at the factory she experienced such a sense of fatigue that she could not sleep for hours. And so it was the second and third day.

Four days after ber arrival in the town of Belmont, on reaching her boardinc house after her day's work, she found a sealed note lying on the table. "It is from uncle she murmured, as she took it up and noticed the monogram, stamped on the envelope. But, as she read the signature at the bottom of the note, she gave utterance to an exclamation of surprise, and, with wondoring eyes, she perused its contents, which were brief. "Can I have a few moments' oonver. sation with you this ran the Dote.

"I have been endeavoring to speak to you during the last few days, but find it necessary to request a quiet interview. If you are disengaged, leave word with Mrs. Johnson. "Yours with respect, "Hbnb? Mason, Jr." Nellie read the words over two or tlnoo times, and her wondorment increased. "Whatoan this wealthy mill-owner have to say to mo?" she murmured.

"And he desires an interview here."

Sara Bernhardt is an advocate of free lore. Because she does not add child murder to hor looso morality, it is called bigotry to denounce her conduct as pernicious aud dangerous to society und hence that he should not bo countenanced, It strikes us if this condemnation is bigotry, the presence on cur statute books of laws aguint prostitution is also bigotry and they ought to bo orasod. 21io fact tint an unchaste woman possesses talent and peculior fasuinition only makos her example the more deadly and the more deserving of condemnation.

It is now proposed to hold a publio meeting, on Monday evening, January 10th, to talk the matter up, and it is desired that every farmer in a radius of four miles of Havens be present.

Thus 6ne generation succeeds another, unobserved. Digressions and abrupt changes, I might suggest, are excusable, during holidays However, I oan not see any Impediment in a bright future for Kansas.

Jancvhy 30, lxso. Ediii'end..!.i Will you pleas? give space in your paper for a brief description of the Christmas festivities at the residence ol Mr.

ObiJ Beach, who is more generally known as "Father Beach," residing in Lincoln township. The day was one that will long be remembered by those present as a happy, happy day, for there was assembled at the board and under the roof of the old homestead, all the numerous children and grand-children of our venerable parents, to talk over day? goii8 by, when we were one fam: ily, with the one hearth-stone to keep warm and the one altar around which to worship. But now', with the years that have flown, wo are the representatives of almost a halt-score of families, with as many domestic shrines to keep pure and additional memories to keep grea'n. Our venerable father is now in his seventy-sixth year, while our dear old mother is in her seventy ninth year, and both are happily in the possession of strong minds and remarkable health of body for' persons of their advapced years. Tin children and grand-children, togother, number seventy, and all are enjoying good health, except our dear brother, Joseph Beach, whom God, in hi wisdom, has seen fit to afflict with deafness, so much so that it is Very difficult to converse with him, The party assembled about ten o'clock and enjoyed themselves for a few hours with the little folks by taking a rabbit hunt, which terminated about two o'clock, when we repaired to the house, to partake of a dinner served at that hour.

The table was literally groa'ing under its load of good things it was perfectly delicious, and it may seem superfluous to you for me to say that your humble servant got his share, as did all the rest. Our host said after we were through that there was still hope for the hungry. The party broke up in the evening, the old people giving way to the young folks, who organized an extemporaneous glee club, singing a number of good pieces. We can hardly expect that we will all meet again, as wo did then, but we- can look forward to the time when we ean, an uu broken family, Kathor around, our Heavenly Father's throne and receive his blessings. Brother Lavcrty, of Havens, and his good lady, were among the guests, and added very materially to our enjoyment.

Henry Mason wished to see her in the parlor. 'So she is hcquainted with him, eh?" muttered the landlady under hnr breath. "Well, that's nothing to her credit. If he ain't vicious, he's too extravagant to know the use of mency. The little parlor, with its overloaded mantel and rusty hair-cloth furniture gaping at every pore, was not very in viting to a man of taste, but Mr.

Ma son seemed to entirely overlook those minor aeiects and concentrate his at ten tion upon the ladv boarder, who entered the room with a half-pleasant, half-displeased look. "I am ready, Mr. Mason, to hear what you have to say," she remarked, carelessly. "Ah. that is rieht.

Thank von ell. in the first Dlace. I wish, an have already said, to give you better employment aua a nignerrate ot wages.

There is everything agreeable about the work, and nothing disagreeable. You could not do better than accept it." Nollie tapped the floor with her foot and fumbled with a button on her dress. She was thinking what a fine look' ing man Mr. Mason was, and how pleasant. His manner was beginning to force her to the conclusion that she was acting very rude, and she felt somewhat asnamea.

"Jir.
