Aching Heads aad t'aeasy Serves
Are olten soothed by Hostctter's Stom
ach bitters, because that searching cor
rectiveness completely removes the causes
ot brain and nerve excitement, which
aro to be found in derangement of the
stomach, and ot its associate organs, the
liver and bowels. It is a truth which
cannot be too earnestly insisted upon,
that the effect ot mere sedatives and nar
cotics, like bromide of potassium, valer
ian, chloral, hydrate and opium, is less
appreciable the longer they are used, and
that they can never permanently relieve
nervous excitability, because they can
not remedy the weakness and organic de
rangement w hlch lies at its roots. Hos
tctter's Bitters, however, can and does
cure nervous maladies, for tbe reason al
ready stated. Sick headache, restless
ness at night, vertigo, mental heaviness,
and depression of spirits, as well as the
dyspeptic condition cl the stomach, and
torpidity ot the liver and bowels, w hich
give rise to them, are entirely obviated
by this benign alterative tonic.

THE TOBACCO BEAJ0V.
Opening Stales at the Farmer' and
Planters' Warehouses Yesterday.
The opening sales of the season took
place at the Farmer)' tobacco warehouse,
Commercial avenue near Eighth street,
and at tbe Planters' warehouse on Tenth
street, yesterday. Though the day was
an unpleasant one, a cold, drizzling rain
falling most of the time, the attendance
was very large, and among the buyers
present we noticed men from Louisville,
Evansville, Paducah, St. Louis and Chi
cago, betides an unusually large number
of local dealers.
At the Farmers' warehouse, Messrs.
Hinkle & Thistlewood, proprietors,
about forty hogsheads were offered ; but
it was a noticeabe fact that there was not
one hogshead of good leaf in the entire
lot. This, however, Is chargable to the
fact that the weather has been unfavor
able tor handling tobacco, and but very
little or no good tobacco has been mar
keted. The same condition ot a flairs was
noticeable at the Planters' warehouse,
all of the oflerings there being lugs and
low and medium leaf. The prices ob
tained for that sold were full aud satis.
factory in every instance.
Sales at the Farmers' warehouse, llin

that has iroverned our elections for years
Dast that of eschewing politics Is the
true principle to govern our uiue elec
tion. as it thus enables us as good citizens to
select the right man for the right place,
which w ould not be tbe case if the elec
tionbe placed under tbe management
and control ot parties. Tarty nominal
ing conventions, which aro run
whollv bv ward politicians, is not a gwm
medium through which to select the
K.r i.nmiulntet lor the various
y oftlce. Let us have a cm
n' convention u iew
to nominate through tho medium ot a
invention or better still, let those cm
tens who are Interested directly in tue
welfare of the city, the property owners
elect eood meu lor the various city
offices and request them to allow the use
r.r their names in thla connections, ana
then give all candidates a fair show be
tr.ea tha neonle without neuxinjf uiu
around with party connectlons.or making
the defeat of any candidate a foregone
nr...,inii because of noo-eonnectlon
with any party. This course will wermH
.n Aandidates to stand upon their own
merits, and 1 believo the people will fcUcot
the men that would best aerva tht Inter
ests of the city, 1 do not Uka lo an
election pass oS too quletiV. Exslte
ment to good, It produces a healthy
feeling, and 1 would like to sea more
Interest taken in our city elec
tions, and more excitement, as
thereby the merits of all candidates
would be thoroughly discussed, and
rotera can then intelligently decide who
would best serve the Interests of the city.
We want a man for mayor who has some
firmness ; one who will not say "yes" to
everything, but who can say "no" when
necessary, and mean it and stick to it ;
one who can form ideas of hit own, and
who will not be led around by the nose
by any party or clique. We want a man
who, when sitlsQed that any certain
course of action is the true course, will
stick to that course through thick and
thin. This is the kind of man we want.
and I do not believe that any political
convention would select such a man.
