The defeat of Mr. Alcorn i deeply regretted,
but is by no means dishonorable.
As a lawyer, a citizen and a gentleman he
has a hold on the affections of those who
know him best, which will be rendered
more firm and more secure by tbia tempo
rary failure. We have lost for tho time
about the best material for a judge that
could have been cflered, but Mr. Alcorn Is
young enough to "bide bis time" and philosopher
enough lo take bis defeat magnanimously.
Of course we can not predict with
certainty "what the Morrow will bring
forth." We can only hop, or rather wish,
for the best.
Notwithstanding the earnestness with
which the partisans of the various
pressed the claims of their fayoritea
on Monday, the day parsed over In unusual
nnlet. No collision, not even en acri
monious disputation, occurred. Everyone
was working, each for his ticket, among
the leader; each for hia pay among the followers,
but all in good humor. This unwonted
harmony is due mainly to the wiee
and gentlemanly courtro of J. G. We ather
ford, of tho hotel, who kept his saloon closed
during the day and sacrificed a golden
harvest of gain for the publio'sgood. Roman
virtue and Spartan heroism, which have
bijen sung for ge, present no feature rrtoro
worthy of admiration thin this act of hie;
and a general immitation of hia example
would rceult in greater peace, proeperity
and security to tho public than all the
blatant harangues of the last 50 yearn have
been able lo accomplish.
(aid of Thanks,
I wish to return my sincere thankB to the
many kind friends who so generously ministered
to our wanta during our long sick-nets
and aflHctlons. And if they nre never
rewarded In this world I know that It will
bo as jewels in their crown of life laid up
for them in a better world.

It used to be the idea that gypsum or
land plaster waa advantaseously sprinkled
over manure heaps to prevent the escape of
amonla. There is no proof that this is the
result. It is unquestionable, howover, that
a light application of salt to tho manure
heap frequently through the winter ia beneficial.
The heap thus treated should, how-over,
not He where It is exposed to heavy
rains, as ono (fleet of the salt ia to make
the plant food in the manure heap more
soluble. If the manure I out of doors, as
