Uncle John Bobinson, who was
the people's and Republican can?
didate lor Mayor of Cincinnati, had
the misfortune to be beaten on j
Monday, and to be badly beaten?
6,000 being the majority against]
him. When we recollect that Cin?
cinnati is not a Democratic city,
and that it has only elected the
ticket of that party in late years
because there is a very large Li?
beral element among its voters, the
defeat of Mr. Bobinson can only
be attributed to the fact that cir?
cus men are not popular in Cincin?
nati, and that its people have * no
de?iro to have a menagerie in their ]
politics. Uncle John, as he is fa?
miliarly called, is said to be an|
honest man, but ho had been con?
nected with rings all his life, and |
even now associates with clowns.
Hence very probably his rejection.
There is a cortain clergyman in
Troy who keeps an eye on the
temp?^?LiC? habits of his flock. On
Sunday afternoons ho takes a seat
in one of the most frequented bar?
rooms of the city and watches the
customers. The Press says that
the number of men who call and
leave after asking what time it is
or Where John Smith liveB, is as?
"Who's there?" said Jenkins, one
very cold wintor night, disturbed
in his repose oy some one knocking
at the street door. "A iriend,"
was the answer. "What do you
want?" "Want to stay hero all
night." "Queer taste?stay there
by all means," was the benevolent |
When the Omaha people find a |
man half buried in the snow, his
limbs chopped from his body, and
two bullet holes in his left Bide,
their papers ask, "has.a foul mur?
der .been committed?" Probably,
but if not, what?
When, a boy begins to feel that
he has commenced the problem of
destiny?When his mother makes
him hold a skein of zephyr at the
very time he has promised to meet
Bill: Jones in the hay mow to have
a game of seven up.
A > Toledo reporter can throw a
boot-jack' thirty-six yards, on a

like to be able to throw a boot-jack
thirty-six feet on a dark night, end

The symptoms of Liver Complaint are
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
iis affected with loss of uppotite and slck
fness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with .pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss ol
memory, accompanied with painful son
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
(above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in?

Stomach, bad tu*te in this Month, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloom and

If yon feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache,
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you are suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in tho body, is generally the seat of the

and DEATH will ensue.
