76. lappuse - The signs in our streets have inscriptions in both languages, and in some places only German. They begin of late to make all their bonds and other legal instruments in their own language, which (though I think it ought not to be) are allowed good in our courts, where the German business so increases, that there is continued need of interpreters ; and I suppose in a few years they will also be necessary in the Assembly, to tell one half of our legislators what the other half say.

219. lappuse - The American shrank from the industrial competition thus thrust upon him. He was unwilling himself to engage in the lowest kind of day labor with these new elements of the population ; he was even more unwilling to bring sons and daughters into the world to enter into that competition.

76. lappuse - I remember when they modestly declined intermeddling in our elections, but now they come in droves and carry all before them, except in one or two counties.
72. lappuse - Neither do the average or typical emigrants of to-day represent the lowest in the economic and social scale even among the classes from which they come, a circumstance attributable to both natural and artificial causes. In the first place, emigrating to a strange and distant country, although less of an undertaking than formerly, is still a serious and relatively difficult matter, requiring a degree of courage and resourcefulness not possessed by weaklings of any class.
120. lappuse - commander" whose heart must be as black as his craft, who is paid a dollar a head for all he brings to the market, and more in proportion to the distance, if they bring them from such a distance that they cannot easily get back.
