tion at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, 0., February 24. The
second day's session of the Interna
tional Editorial Association began to

F.thicfl," by A. II. Lowry of Illinois.
Mr. J. B. Stanley of Alabama read a
paper on "The Press of Alabama,"
and Mr. I. R. Bettis of Arkansas read
one on "Foreign Advertising." This
paper aroused much discussion. Its
subject had reference to advertising
agents, and Mr. Bettis suggested a
pooling of papers in districts with a
pool advertising agent to handle for,
eign advertising at pool rates. The
debate Bhowed a diversity of opinion,
and tho result attained was the ap
pointment of a committee to consider
the topic and report to-morrow morn
ing. ThiH being disposed of, A. S.
Mann of tho Florida delegation in
vited the convention to send a delega
tion of twenty members on an excur

A DentlaVa Advertising Scneme.
St. Louis, Mo., February 24. The
widely circulated statement that a
dentist of Oakland, Cal., would appear
as an important witness against Max
well, the alleged murderer cf Preller,
whose partially decomposed body was
found in a trunk at the Southern Ho
tel in this city, is pronounced false.
This dentist stated that be felt confi
dent that he could identify this tody
as that of Preller, because when the
latter was in Oakland he did some
dentistry work uion his teeth which he
stated he could easily recognize upon
an examination. It appears now that
there is no truth in this statement,
and that the dentist, anxious for no
toriety, sought it by circulating the
above canard.

Helena, Auk., February 23. Tex
nrkana, Tex., and Texarkana, Ark.,
have a ixa-tollice muddle that for
something unusual and unique takes
the cake, and lays the Helena post-
olhce controversy out in tho cold.
The situation there is this: The post
ollice for both towns, which in reality
is one, is situated on the Arkansas
side. The Texas Congressman con
ceived the brilliant idea of also hav
ing a postillice on the Texas side of
the fence. Hie matter was agitated.
an applicant for the position tiled his
petition and was apjxHtited by the
President, and arrangements made to
start, on short notice, a Texarkana,
Tex., postxiice. Texarkana, Ark.,
however, wts not asleep. They went
to work to prevent the confirmation of
the Texas nan with so much vigor
that there is a possibility of them
having accomplished their object.
1 he arguments advanced by the Ar
kansans in opposition to the
scheme are as nniiiie as the
situation. For instance, they say:
Suppose iyou do get your
oluce. over there in lexas. ny con
found, it vou won't know but what
vou have irot mail over here in Ar
kansas, and we won't know but what
we have something over in lexas, and
it will jus, keep a man busy running
hack and firth. 1 hat would be a nice
state of affairs for a man to shoulder
on a muddy, sloppy day. Now.
wouldn't it? We suggest for the good
people of that prosperous little city
that a cooci solution of the question
would be i for tho postollice to be
erected on the line, and tho two post
masters it the lexas man can so
cure his confirmation run the con
cern in coiiartnerehip."
A monument of eternal gratitude
should be erected to Miss Winthrop
of New York and McAllister Laugh
tan of Washington for propagating
tho custom of courtseying instead ol
handshaking as a salutation.
Oh 1 that the custom may become
popular and that these two eminently
divine ladies may come to Arkansas
and aid in its introduction before the
campaign of lRHO gets under full head
w-flv. The rioor niuchlv "souoso'
hand of the dear voter at the hands of
the festive candidate calls aloud for its
introduction. The voices of our dainty
darlings as their little lily-white hands
are fondly clasped in tho horny hands
of their demonstrative younij fellows
yells for its introduction. Vie might
go on and enumerate the different
classes and conditions of Arkansans
that are clamoring for its introduction,
but deem it unnecessary. We guar
antee, should the much needed re-
form B fair propagandees deem it ex
pedient, to carefully distribute any
(plant it y they may send to Arkansas.
Mr. Iyouis E. Doyle, one of our popu
lar cotton buyers, is dangerously ill
with the bronchitis at the Pacific

The clerk of tho steamer Will 8.
Hays, upon its arrival in this port yes
terday, had City Marshall Lingg to
arrest two white men on board of the
boat, charging them with having
stolen some watches and other pro
perty. A search of the men, however,
revealed nothing, and they were dis
charged. The completion of the Arkansas
Midland from Clarendon to Little
Rock is being earnestly advocated by
the State papers. This road mm-
iileted, and a transfer here by the
misville, New Orleans and Texas
railroad would be a great feeder i.ir
Memphis.
Tho Mississippi river is just nine
feet below high water mark. Some of
the river sages predict higher water
than in IK82this year, but of course
they know just about as much about
it ns the man in the moon. Tho con
dition of the levees, however, is gen
erally very good on both sides of the
river, and the planters do not appre
hend much danger.
Only Half Alive.
There art holts of men and women who, to
ooin a phrase, are only half alive. That if to
i7, they hare seldom, if ever, any appetite,
are nervous, weak, Idgetty and troubled by
numberleia email paint andachea. In the
preaenoe of rigorous, exubera nt vitality they
aeem mere pigmiea. Bach penoni are usu
ally fond of frequently doaing themselves,
wallowing iii the eoarteof the year enough
drura to atook any apothecary's shop ot av
erage dimenaiona. Tbia, of course, defeats
instead of lurthering the end In view, vis,
the recoTery of health and vigor. Were
they to seek it from an unfailing source of
vitality, Hoitettet's Stomach Bilters, how
different would be their cue. Then vigor
would return to their debilitated frames, the
glow ol health to their wan cheeka, their
trembling, uncertain gait would grow firm
and elastic, appetite, that grandeat of all
sauces, would give a relii-h for the daily
lood, were it ever so coarse, and refreshing
sleep would crown the taaks of the day.

Indianapolis, Ind., February 24.
This morning workmen on the canal
discovered the badly decayed bodies
of a man and woman which had been
held under the surface of the ice for
some weeks. The latter was identified
as that of Zerelda Newton, a partially
demented middle-aged woman who
disapicared a month or more ago, and
for whose whereabouts diligent search
has been made. It is supposed she
threw herself into the water. The
other body was so badly decomposed
as to be nnrecognizalide.

Euidre.
Nfw Yohk, Febilary 24. A Wash
ington special to tic HitiM sjivs: Mr.
Charles LVnby, Vijted State Minister
to China, has seit some interesting
dispatches to Mr. (iayard which deal
with two qucstiom of vital imHrtauce
to the development and safety of the
empire. The first is the const ruction
of railroads w hich Li Hung Chang is
urging. with all tin vigor of his great
intellect. The otlfr is the building
of a navy to replace, the useless junks
w hich at present 11' the lmiicrial Hag,
and to organize a hj stem ol coast de
fense adequate to irotect the harlxr
and shores of the country. Mr. Henby
says: "I have the honor to state, as
a matter of interval to a great many
wise persons in me l nited Mates, and
as a part of the current history of
China, the positioi: of that empire as
to the construction, of railroads. The
most prominent luin in China to-day
is Li Hung Chaig, who is Grand
Secretary of. the Knipire, Viceroy of
the Province, and one of the beails of
the Admiralty Itaird. His residence
is at lien Tsin, but lie lately siK'iit
some weeks at Pi kin. I bad the pleas
ure of meeting him on several occa
sions. He seeing to have great respect
for foreigners. He has for some years
been in favor of building rail
roads. I fa has had a bard
fight in China to have his views ap
proved. The opposition conies cbietiy
from the censors and the Board (if
Revenue. The censors represent that
numbers of men would be thrown out
ot employment, graves would be des
ecrated aiid internal revenue troubles
Would ensue. The Hoard of Revenue
claims that if railroads are built the
whole revenue service of China would
have to be changed. It seems likely
in effect that the Pekin tax, which is
one of the chief sources of revenue to
China, would have to be abandoned
or mrterially modified. This is a con
summation that the foreigners most
ardently desire. Tho viceroys gener
ally opwse railroads because they tend
to centralization of power and thereby
diminish their own influence, lint
Li Hung Chang, through ull the
changes of men and measures, has re
tained bis power, and there seems
every reason to believe that ho will
succeed in his plan of
constructing: railroads.
I send to the department the dying
memorial of Tso Tsung Tang, which
contains an able presentation of the
argument in favor of constructing rail
roads in China. By way of parenthe
sis, I will state that a dying official al
ways leaves a posthumous memorial
to the government. It also happens
often that after he is dead some dis
tinguished honorary office is conferred
upon him bv imperial decree. This
memorial of Tso Tsung Tang preceded
by a very few days the visit of Li
Hung Chang to the capital, and fur
nished him a fine opportunity to press
his railroad views. It was considered,
certainly with reason, that the best
mode of inviting the attention of the
government to the merits of railroads
would be to exhibit a working model
of an American roadway and rolling
stock. The Chinese are eminently a
practical people, without much scien
tific knowledge; therefore an actual
ocular demonstration of the thing
proposed is the surest and easiest
mode of carrying conviction to their
minds. Acting upon this peculiarity,
a complete working model railroad
was procured from the United States.
It consisted of 100 feet of main track
and sidings, with switches and turn
table, a passenger locomotive and ten
der, mail and baggage cars, passenger
cars, Pullman parlor and sleeping
cars, different kinds of freight
cars, a full section of seats ami
lierths in sleeping cars, etc.
The cars were five feet long, anil
other parts of the model in equal pro
portion, and care had been taken to
make the model throughout an exact
representation of a miniature road,
locomotive, cars, etc., in actual use in
the United States, complete in the
smallest details. The motive power
was clockwork. This model was ex
hibited to the Viceroy, Li Hung
Chang, in his yamen at Tien Tsin in
September last, and he expressed him
self much pleased with it, and soid he
would exhibit it in Pekin when he
went there in October. On the Kith
of October the model, which had been
conveyed to Pekin, was again exhib
ited before the Viceroy by his order,
and on the following day the Vice
roy presented it to Prince Chum, the
Emperor's father. Several native me
chanics who were Ohio to work the
model went with it to the Prince's
palace and worked it successfully in
the pleasure grounds of the palace.
TIIK l'RINCR WAS HIOIILY rXKASEn
and thanked the Viceroy heartily.
Two duys later the Prince sent the
model to the Imperial Palace, where it
was exhibited to the Emperor and
Empress Dowager, and worked suc
cessfully. Their majesties were much
interested and amused, and spent
some time in a minute examination of
the model. It was the first and most
complete representation they had ever
seen of the much-talked-of railroad,
and it enabled them and the Prince to
realize many of the benefits that this
modern institution would confer on
China. It is understood tlmt tho
event materially assisted the Viceroy
in his advocacy of railroads for China,
and their majesties lent a willing ear
to all ho had to say in favor of rail
roads, and agreed to allow him to pre
pare for their introduction into the
country. The memorial itself is very
interesting reading. It shows how
strongly the spirit of progress is estab
lishing itself among the enlightened
Chinese. Viceroy Tso formulates
seven propositions, to which be in
vites the imperial attention. He sug
gests the manufacture of guns and
munitions of war, thet forma
tion of a modern navy, a
complete system of railroavls, the
establishment of military and naval
colleges and otner relorms which the
Empire much needs. In conclusion,
Mr. Denby says: "China has not
been standing still. Factories of glass,
woolen goods, ptper, etc., equipped in
Western stylo,which are scattered over
the ' country and owned by Chinese
.subjects, are proofs of her enterprise,
and now, if the government takes the
question earnestly in hand we may
look for the adoption in China of
many of ourappliannes and modes of
manufacture. That some of the above
mentioned enterprises have been un
successful proves nothing, for the
Chinese know that the fault lies with
in themselves. New ventures in the
same line are sure to follow, and when
success shall crown any of their efforts
the whole progressive enterprise will
receive an impetus which will insure
its permanent establishment in the
country."
