Til moment wo learned tbat tho antl

we went in toarcb of tho groat grnngor,
Llnegar, and tbo unwavorlng anti-rnonop-llati,
Tope and FUbcr, determined to em
brace them and call tbom our long-lost
political brothers, but thoy would not.
They are a hard and perverse genorntlon.
SistCK tho Ohio eloctlon news made ut
leap with joy wo hnre been seeking tho
unwavering Democrat, Judges Grcon, to
clasp htm to our Demosralic heart, and
the iteadfait Herman, who allows not a
doubt of Domocrat tuccost to roll across
bit peaceful Democratic breast, to fold

SPARK OUR HLUSUES.
Tho temptation to publish tbe following
complimentary card li so strong we yield
to It:
Dkak Oberit I tee that your aro
till on tho tide of Jetui, and 1 do bo
Hero that you are tbe only ono who hai
tho courage to attert it publicly in the
face of Denton. You have brains enough
not to mako a d d fool of younelf, and I
want you to come out and dofond us for
nnttcally in tho forum, and confound in
fidelity. Yourt in tho Gospel,
Thomas.
Cairo, Octobor 21, 1873.
Doe our correspondent for a moment
tupposo we would go back on our reputa
tion at the only roliglous journalist In
Egypt? "We aro not that kind of a
Cnriitinn. Out Thomas must eicuso ui.
We do not cfere to ldck. horns with Den
ton in public on the stage in a discussion
of rellgfdui lubjocU. To speak devoutly
' and uso tbe Christian expression of our
correspondent wo havo brains enough to
not make such ad d fool of our self.
That is Denton's hobby. It is not ours.
Out if Denton feels liko having a square
toed debate on tho railroad question, tho
revenue law or tho salary grab, we aro
bis man. Of course ho Is a salary grab
apologist and monopolist and wo are anx
ioui to have that kind of a man tramp on
our oratorical coat tall.
TtlUKMAN US OUlf."
Senator Tnurman is tho coming man of
the opposition. 11 o may be wedded to
old-tiaie ideas hut ho is not ; bo may he
willing to recognize accomplished facts
but bo is not; he may boa reactionist
but he is not; be may be all ho is said to
be tbat it not commondablo and still he is
undoubtedly tbo coming man. He it
able and bo is lucky, and just at this time
we need a combination of this kind to do
feat corruption and bring tin.' country
back to its moorings in tho harbor of the
constitution, a llguro rather tho worse for
wear, but liko "Old Dill Allen," con
founded good although confounded ven
erable. Thurmun bus enough hay teed In
bis hair to mako blm acceptable to us
grangers. At least that is our present
opinion, lie it also au anti-monopolist
an advocate of railroad control an honest
man an ablo statesman a little cold
blooded, but warm enough to have a patrl
otic regard for tho rights of tho people
conttmnerof thlovory.and so on. If such
a man it not tatlifactory to us farmers,
what kind of a man do wo desire? It it
possible, tbat, being very fastidious, we
with a politician with tho wings of an an
gel ? Have wo becomo so dainty that
our candidates must bavb about their gar
menu tbe odor of absoluto political per
fection rosiaiy: but It sc, we are
doomed to disappointment. Tnurman is
about at gool a man at can be found in
side tbo opposition organization. AVe
would like another better, but if wo must,
we must. He Is liko tugar ; sugar is good
enough in Its place, but out ol its place in
whisky; but tbero havo bean occasions
when we took sugar in our'n and didn't
tlnd the combination anything to sneero
at; and at for us, if wo must, why (Lord
help ut'l we shall manage to take
a little Thurman in "our'n," and we hope
and expect to not be compelled to teul
very bad about the necessity which wij
compel ut to philosophically twallow Mm
In truth, it it just possible we may ttnixk
our Dpi after tbe draught and learn to
liko' It becomo attached to it, in short
"Who can tell? Those are tuch wondsr-
ful timet.
A SUGGESTION TO DENTON
We wl.-b to make a tuggettion to l'rof.
Denton. In hit lecturo on Jesus, ha main
taint tne position tbat tbe "Savior" was
taken from tbo cross alive, was resusci
tated, appeared in tbe flesh to the disciples,
and was taken with a fever at tbo resi
dence of Joseph and died of tbat disease.
The ttory don't bang together well. It it
not a reasonable position that after Jesus
bad been nailed through the feet to the
crott, he walks! about the city of Jerusa
lem. We do not'know what sited nails
wore used or whether they wero of Iron,
but we are ture the wounds in his feet
would have mid a bis walking apparatus
very tore. If, now, Denton would Inter
polate into hit lecture tbit passage be
would add much to itt force: "Looking
from tbe window of Joseph's bouse it Is
probable Jetus taw Wary go to tbo tomb
tbe next morning, In all probability,
influeacad by a desire to ipoak
to her, Jesus took tho crutches Joseph had
furnished him with tho gardnor't clothes,
and hobblod out to soo bur. She was
aomowhit astonished at his appearance,
and naturally believed him a gbost on
two sticks. Jctut told her to toll bis dis
ciples tbat ho wanted to see them and
would moet them at Nar.irelb. The dis
ciples objocted; but finally an arrange
ment was mado for a meeting in Jerusa
lem on the night of tbo third day, when
Jesua appoared in tbolr midst. After be
had returned to his chamber in Jnioph't
house his feet became sorer nnd sorer.
Finally lockjaw set in and re
sulted In his death. Joseph, afraid
for his own soke, to tell thnl be had enter
tained Jesus after ho had escaped death
on the cross, buried the body secretly in
hit garden." "Wo submit to a candid
.world this passage as hotter than
Denton's on the sstno subjoct. Lockjtw
is a better disease than fever to use in dis
posing of Jesus. Fover it is truo might
havoensued from the ovcllement which no
ioubt resulted from hanging on the cross,
but the lockjaw idea lockjaw resulting
from soro feot Is so probable a disease
that its uso in Denton's lecture would be
ono of tho happiest of hits. Tnis added
to tho crutch idea would make Denton's
account of the oicapo of Jesui from the
cross so plausible, the story told by tbo
Evangelists would bo knocked without
ditllculty into a cocked hat and Christian
ity would i'umoJiatety tapplo to its full.
A NOI1LE SACHIF1CE.
When tho cry of distress wont up from
Memphis when it was flashed over the
land that men, wocion and children In
that peslilonco stricken city woro suffer
ing and dying for want of nurses, Murtba
Stephenson, of Towanda, Illinois, a girl
not twenty yean of ago, in tho bloom of
youth and health, was visiting friends in
Illoomington. Her heart answered the
appoal for help, and unknown to frionds
or family who might havo wished to pre
vent tbe slop, Silo wont to Memphis
and otTored hersolf hi a nurso for yellow
fever patients. Within two hours after
ber arrival in that city, she had entered
on hor duties and found herself, beside
Dr. Blackburn, tho only other attendant
of a yellow fevor patient, n woman alto in
the pangs of maternity. Whon spokon to
by Dr. Olackburn on tho subject of hor
youth and Inoxperionce, the made tho
noble response that sbo wished to nurse
tho sick and tho dying, and desired to lay
aside any natural feeling of modesty,
which would interfcro to prevent her
to dltchaigo of the duties of hor of
fice. Bbo performed tho unaccustomed
services required of her with tho modesty
of. a young girl, and womanly patience
and tenderness. Her patient died and tho
willing feet of MartbaStephenson carried
her to other scenes of distross whero with
ready hands tho performed tho welcome
offices of nurso for tho prostate, victims of
thaplague. After two woekt of tireless tor
vice, the was herself takon tick with yel
low fover; the was carefully tended by
Dr. Hlackburn, but bis skill as a physi
cian and nurso was of no avail and the
succumbod to tho diseaso aftor an
illness of only a fow days
And thus wiint out the light uf a noble
life, veritably laid down for other's sakes.
Tbe history of Martha Stephenson, young
in yoart but ttrong in courage, poor in
worldly possessions but rich in a character
in which sympathy for suffering follow-
croaturct overcame even tbo fonr of dis
ease and death, deserves to bo told in tho
category with that of Floronco Nighten
gale anil other noblo women whoso deeds
have made their name! immorul, and in
comparison wttb wuoso record uort
will not pale. Shu was buried
tn Elm wood cemetery, end hor
remains were followed to the grave by
tbo mombors of tbe Howard association
of .Memphis, by citizens, members of the
prctt and others, all of whom, in the
name of tho ulllictod people of .Memphis,
honored themselves in thus honoring tho
memory of ono who had beon truly
ministering angel in thoir midst. In tbo
boautiful and touching tribute to her mom
ory by tho Hcv. Mr. Uoggs, pastor of
the second Presbyterian church iu Mem-
pblt who led tho funoral services, heeald:
Lips liko mine cannot llttlntly tnoak
the praises of such a life such a glorious
doatb. May Divine l'owor use this ex
ample of unselfish philanthropy to en
grave upon our hearts tho sublime moral
which tne messed son ot UOtl draws trom
his own wondrots parable of the " Good
Samaritan " Go, thou, and dolikowiso.'1
And hereafter, when our duties to tho
living sutlorort thai) allow of it, let bur
timploilory bo told toour hoyt and gills
when we shall bo cold, and It may on
forgotten boneuth tho grcon sod. Let the
breathing marble and tbo sculptor' art do
some justice, not to her merit, which man
can never roward, but to ourselves and the
gratitude of our oily.
Tho Memphis 'Avalanche' adds its cn
dorsemont to tho suggestion of Dr. Hoggs,
and all who read tho history of Martha
Stephonson will lay amen.

TIL 1S75
.SraiMiUKLK, Octobor '-'! It h.u beon
rumored Tor euieral d.ns pa't that the
railroad and warchouso commissioners had
decided to bring suits against several rail
road companies, upon tlm plea ot extor
tionate charges lor tho trans iiortntion of

the board declined to givo to tho public,
through tho press, any of the particulars
of tho case, or to suy which of tho rail
road companies would lie t'to tl rat to no

ascertained that the Gilnun, Clinton and
Springliold railroad company will re
ceive the am attention ot the board, and
that tho Toledo, Wababh and Western and
othr roads will bo tittended to in rapid
succession. In fact, it Is nsscrtcd that in
tho caso of tho G. C. and S. rood, a
precipe was (llod to-day. Tho only regret
which tho puoplo can tool at this action of
thu board is Its tardiness. It is hoped, ex
pected and demand of tho board months
ago that some action should bo taken that
would bring tho merits of tho law before
tho supreme court for tholr decision, In

a now one that would stand the ordeal of
an Investigation by tho supremo court,
This hopo hat been doferrod, and "horn

be impossible to bring any of those pro
