sent broadcast over the country to the
effect that the negro, Riley Covington,
who was arrested in this city some days
since was hanged by a mob on his arrival
at Osceola. Mr. Blackwood denies that
'Covington is charged with killing two
men." Mr. Blackwood would have per
haps been nearer correct if he had stated
that tho indictment against Covington
docs not charge him with the murder of
two men. He is charged with killing
two men, and every one who has heard
of the mutiucr by which Covington came
into possession of the watch, coat and
hat of the missing man Stiacklel'oot is
convinced that Covington murdered him.

Elegant hair Is womun'a crowulng

While it is kept bright her personal at

over their laded hair turning gray too

-In another place lu this issue ot the
Bi i.i.l i in we publish a communication
from a well-known citizen ol Cairo,
which mc commend to the attention of
the sheriff and the olllcers of tho law
generally. 'Citizen" Ui-ks somo very
knotty questions which it would be well
for those who are charged with tlie ex
ecution ot the laws to at least ponder
over. "Cit.en'' is mistaken, however,'
when he asserts that the killing ot old
man Brown, and the manner in which
his remains were disposed ol after death
Isjustified by all the newspapers. The
Bi.'i.lkjim culled attention to the
matter, and demanded that an inquest
be held, but no uttcution was paid to
the demand. As wc stated
In an article on this subject, we believe
that it would have been better tor
Messrs. Littner and Heim that an inves
tigation ol the circumstances which led
to old man Brown's death should be had.
It they are able to show that they were
jnsliltd in what they did and from
what wc know of the allair, we are con
vinced that a coroner's jury would have
Justilled them, would have
savcj them trouble in the future. But
no matter what the cjosequeiices might
be, au investigation should have been
held, and the olllcers have shown theu..
selves either incompetent or willully neg.

I' pou the action of the kidneys, blad
dcr.uud bowels depends the depuration
of the blood. It is by promoting tlie
activity of these organs that Hostetter's
Stomach Bitter ensures purity to the
circulation. In its passago through the
kidneys, impurities which beget rheu
matism, gout, and gravel aro strained
from the blood, but when those small
but all Important organs grow inactive,
these impurities of course remain, and
inevitably produce tho diseases men
tioned. Hostetter's Bitters rouse the
kidneys to renewed activity, by which
means this blood is depurated. It like
wise purities the blood when contiitniii i-
tcd with bile by promoting a gentle but
effect tial action of tho bowels, und has the
further elluct of regulating the nation of
the liver, thus counteracting a tendency
to biliousness, dyspepsia, malarial fevers
nnd urinary complaints aro also con

Dkak Sik : 1 met with a frightful ac
cident on my trip on Saturday. In com
ing down a very steep hill, some part of
the harness gave way and caused the
wagon to run onto the horse, at the bot
tom of the hill is a sharp curve, rolling
on the tipper side, and in making the
turn the wagon upset, hurling little
Lonulo Parker and my sell out. Lonnic
was thrown at least ten feet and wonder
ful to relate m vcr received a scratch. I
was hurled violently to the ground und
had it not been that 1 had one ol the
gentlest ot horses you could have writ
ten my obituary. As it turned out I es
caped with a broken shoulder and collar
bone In two places. I am in a great deal
ol pain but in good bunds. Fortunately
it is the left shoulder. I write you this,
supposing the affair will be exaggerated,
and I give you the lacts. I will be laid
up from three to live weeks,
Your Friend, II. A. IIanxon.
The lllflcrciier Bel ween Hilling

To the hilitor of ihr Hi uiti
A week ago you chronicled the brutal
murder of uu old colored man, by white
men; and this morning you chronicle the
robbery of a colored man of three dollars
and a half by lour of his own color. Is
it not a little odd that in the lirst case
alluded to no nrrests have been made or
Inquest held ? while in the lat'er all lour
are in limbo within twenty-lour hours
am) under bonds in the amount ol $300
each for their appearai.ee before the cir
cuit court. In the first ease an old man
is found In the road with his skull crushed
In and his arms broken with clubs; two
men come forward and coolly confers to
having killed h;m, alleging that he was
In their cabbage patch with Intent to
steal. Their excuse is iluemed sufficient;
no arrests are male, nnd they ure even
Justified by the public prints. In the
second case the vigilance of the
police is extolled for the arrest of
tie terrible criminals who set the
1 iws at naught by stealing $3.50. Why
is this? Do we huve one law for tlie
uiggerand another I lor the white? Or
are we degenerating into barbarism,
where property is ol more Value tha i life ?
Common decency should have impelled
the officers to at least havegotie through
the loi m of an inquest. Il there Is any
law or reason why it was nol done, will
the coroner or sheritl please pub lish il?
I am s jealous ol the good namu of
our cltv as ony one can possibly be, but
when such violations of the law of God
and man are permitted, I will not lend
them my sanction by keeping quiet for
tear of injuring our standing abroad as
a law abiding community. Citien-.

The Moflrrn Tnnlalna
Is altogether the opposite of his great
namesake. The latter as a punishment
from the gods tor an infraction of their
commands, was condemned to perpetual
thirst, and immovably tlxed In water to
his chin. What must have been his feel
ings to see that fluid, which more than
all the world besides, he wanted, within
his reach, and lie powerless to drink It
What a rcllnemeul of ciuclty must be
such u punishment. How different our
feelings to his iintclypc, who though
sulleriug from sickness all the time, hav
ing means to meet the cost ut alleviating
his uilmcnt, yet deliberately neglects us
ing tho remedies to his recovery. The
majority ot sickness arises from the tor
pidity of the liver, und can be dissipated
and prevented by the use of that valuable
elixir tonic the Homo Stomach Bitters.

heartburn, costlveucss, weakness, Irregu
