THOSE FRAUDULENT TICKETS.
In its over anxietv to make itself solid
with the Democracy, after years of good
Lord, good Uevu rnciiation, ana in an anicie
addressed to the Eagle, which was intended
to bo smart, the Beacon overreached itself in
giving away a fraudulent ,-cheme gotten up
bvthe Democratic committee of this county,
whereby honest voters were to be misled.
Tho Jvagu: promptly denounced the un
warranted and unheard of job in no very
mild terms. The Hereon instead of realizing
its inexcusable blunder in giving its masters
away, and in its blind zeal to make
itself appreciated bv men who would stoop
to such a thing, (which was no lc-s than to
print Democratic and ltcsubmission tickets
headed bv tho 1'epublicnn electors) reiter

that such work as was proposed ought to be
punished by imprisonment in the penitenti

ever eminatcd from the secret

to the Democratic committee and to every
body else, as well as to show how well
founded the KaolbV indignation was, we
quote a very few lines ot the Kim-a.- ttauuci

"Anv person who designedly gives a
printed or wriUen ticket to any qualified

Congressman 1'eters speaks in the city to
night. VERY SAD.
A very sad case is that of the lady, Mrs.
1'ruett, who attempted to take her own life
a few weeks since, an account of which was
published at the time. The young wife
and mother so far recovered as to be able
to accompany her father to her old home at
O'tawa, Illinois, in which city he is a prom
inent physician. The husband, Mr. G. II.
1'ruett, received n telegram iroin the father
to the effect thatthev had arrived safely and
that Jennie knew her family. The little
hapless babe, scarce six months old and
which was a line promising child, is at the
homoofKos; Han-is, F.sq., and it can last
but a lew days longer. Tlicpoorlittlo thing
commenced to go uown as soon as deprived
of that nourishment which was through the
mother provided. Drs. Furlcy and
Fabrique, who attended the unfortunate
lady, would receive nothing for
their services. The unhappy fath
er and husband called upon
us vestoiday afternoon, and ho seems en
tirely broken up. He did not dream that in
his newly mained life such u fate could have
luvnitcdliini. He says his wife told him
the day he left their old homo for Jvpnsas
that w'heti she had bidden all her relatives
aid frieids good bye, a queer sensation
came over her anil that she could not think
of anything or control her thoughts. Ho
thought but little of tho matter at the time.
Whether she will ever bo her-elf ngainor
not is qiic-tionable. He will remain with
the little pledge of affection now hoenng
between life and death until the end when
he will return to where he first met, wooed
and won her, wiio hating proved her love
by following him with their innocent babe
to their new home in the west, counting on
many long and happy years for their luturo
