Indiana Temperance Law.
The Republican Legislature
of Indiana last week pawed a
strict temperance law, in com
parison with which the Adair
law is mild and liberal. It con.
tains not only the fundamental
principles of the Adair law,
but also other stringent and
The Indiana law forbids the
sale of intoxicating liquors to
be drank in the place of sale,
unless a license has been
granted. Persons wbo wish to
obtain a license mast send a
petition to the County1 Com
missioners which haj been
signed by a majority of the vo
ters of the township, on a
basis of the number of , Votes
given in the preceding Con
gressional election. Besides,
the possessor of the license
must find security in the sum
of three thousand dollars,') with
two real estate owner for
the sale or giving of intoxicat
ing liquors to a minor, who be
comes partly or entirely drunk
from it; the law provides that
the seller can be forced to pay
suitable amends to any person
interested in the drunkard;
said amends can be sued for in
any Court of competent juris
diction. It is declared illegal for a
person to get drunk.' The
punishment is a fine or impris
onment. The sale of liatior on
the Sabbath and festival days,
as well as on election days, is
lorbidden; also on week days,
betwen the hours of 9 in the
evening and 6 in the morning
(police hours,) with a fine ol
from $5 to $25 for every glass
sold. The law further deter-
mines that any husband, wife,
child, parent, guardian or any
one else who is injured in per
son, or in property, by a drunk
ard, or in consequence of
drunkenness, shall have the
right to enter suit against the
person or persons who by sel
ling the liquor, have caused
this drunkenness; and that any
one owning a house and rents
t for the sale of liquor?, or
has rented it for other objects
and knows that liquor is sold
n it, is subjected ti the
conditions of the law in re
spect to indemnification, as
well as the seller of the liquor.
A married woman has the
same right to enter a com
plaint as an unmarried one.
The illegal sale of liquor has
the effect that the lease and
every claim of the lessee U
upon the property rented. The
aw still provides that no liquor
shall be given to An intoxicat
ed person or any one who is in
the habit of getting drunk.
The punishment for trespass
ing in this section n from $5 to
$50. Besides these fines im
prisonment in the county jail
from ten to thirty days, are
provided for every transgress
ion of the law.
An Instructive Brick.
By a microscopic examination
of a brick taken from the pyr
amid of Dashour, a German
philosopher has discovered
many interesting particulars
connected with the life and
habits of the ancient Egyptians
The brick itself is made of mud
of the Nile, chopped straw and
sand, thus confirming the ac
counts ot the Bible concerning
the method of brick manufact
ure. Besides these material.,
the microscope h-s brought to
ight the remains of the river
shells, fish and insects; the seeds
of wild and cultivate i flowers,
corn and barley, the field pea
and tne common flax, cultivat
ed probably both for food and
textile purposes, and the rad-
dish, with many others known
to science. Manufactured pro
ducts were also found, such as
fragments of tiles and pottery,
and small pieceB ot string made
The Farmers' War Against
In Illinois particularly, and
in the Western Stales general
ly, a systematic agitation has
begun among the farmers to
cecure the passage of laws to
regulate the tolls charted for
passengers and freight. This
is but the beginning of a long
and bitter fight between the
producers and the carriers of
passengers and freight. It is
in the nature of a strike
against the extortions of or
ganized capita!, which neces
sarily will produce inconveni
ence and losses to both parties.
Agitation, legislation, and liti
gation will follow in quick
succession; men will come
evasions and more legislation,
an appeal to the Supreme
Court of the United States,
and finally a combination and
consolidation of both interests.
Alter a ten-year struggle it
will be found that isolated
State legislation can not check
the evil, because if products
are to be delivered at New
York, local legislation ot the
several States, unless uniform,
can not afford relief. After
this has become manifest the
General Government will be
appealed to, and the local
struggle will be nationalized.
We have no doubt but the
farmers have the right on their
side. The railways have of
late given the least comfort,
safety, and accommodation for
the most money, and the soon
er our railway princes discover
that they can not impose upon
the community with perfect
impunitj', the better.
Thus far the resolutions ot
the farmers have been earnest
but temperate, and it would
be well if the railway mana
gers would come together, and
inaugurate a friendly confer
ence and measures to abate as
many of the just grievances of
the public as possible.
One of the great difficulties
under which all railways labor
is the fact that the stock and
mortgage bonds together rep
resent a fictitious indebtedness.
Many a railway, which could
be built for $25,000 to the mile
and fully equiped, is crippled
by an indebtedness of twice
that sum per mile. This ficli
tious value must first be wiped
out before relief can be ob

Advertising a Public Benefit.
Business men of a town who
advertise, are well aware that
advertising pays them, and we
are always pleased to hear
them say so, but they are also
entitled to some credit from the
communities in which they are
doing business, as their adver
tisements do not speak for
themselves, alone. The adver
tisements of the loca) paper are
always taken by the stranger
and business man, or the cap
italigt looking for a location, as
an evidence of the prosperity of
a town and advertisers are thus
workiDg for the well-being of
the whole community in which
they live. Suppose a business
man in a remote locality wishes
to invest capital in some other
place; be will naturally choose
a place which he has reason to
believe is a "live" one and pros
pering, and where can he find
so convenient and sure an ev
idence as in the advertisement
of local papers which are al
ways kept on file in all our
arge cities for this and other
in ormation. Business men
therefore further the interest
of themselves and community
by being represented in the ad
vertising columns of their lo

Thk Washington Republican
of the 11th has (he following;
as to Speaker Blaine's refusal
to take the $5000 back pay:uIn
connection with the groundless
little flurry about the Comp
troller overruling the Con
gressional salary bill from some
defect in the language of the
law, the following incident is
worthy of record and preserva
tion: After Mr. Blaine had in
terlined the word 'hereafter' in
the clause relating to theSpeafe
er's salary, it was found that
there aa some doubt whether
that would be sufficient to out
off bis back pay for the reason"
that the law would take effect
as soon as signed and soma
hours before the session expir
eel. laken m connection with
the clause 'including all mem
bert of the Forty-second Con
grese,' there was at least ground
for apprehending that the
Speaker had not succeeded in
cutting himself off from the
two years' back pay. Hearing
of this nice point of construo
tion, Ihe Speaker went to the
conference committee and had
the word 'hereafter struck out
and the Words 'after the present
Congress' inserted, thtii finally
and effectually cntting himself
off from all possibility ofthe
$5000 which others would have
voted into his pocket if be had
simply remained silent. The
Philadelphia Ledger thinks
Speaker Blain's conduct in
this matter deserves 'honorable
The Blind Basket Girl.
The following example of
love and zeal in a blind girl
will interest our readers. A
blind girl in England, brought
to a clergyman thirty shillings
for a missionary society. The
clergyman, surprised that she
should offer him so large a sum,
said to her:
"You are a poor blind girl;
can not afford to give thirty
shillings to the society."
"I am indeed, sir,'' said she,
"as you may see, but not so
poor, perhaps, as you may sup
pose me to be, and I can prove
to you that I can better afford
to give these thirty shillings
thab those girls who have
The clergyman was.of course,
very much struck with her an
swer, and said, 4 shall be glad
to know how you make that
"Sir," she answered, "I aw a
basket-maker, and being blind,
I can make baskets in the dark
as in the light. Now, I am,
sure, sir, in the last dark win
ter it must have cost those girls
that have eyee more than thir-
ty shillings to buy candles to
see to make basket", and bo I
think I have proved that 1 cam

hope that you will take it all
for the missionaries."
