Insane Hospital are now visiting all
the proposed sites for the purpose of
making another location. The citizens
of Milan, seeing that our Lstor city of
Humboldt cannot get it, and believing
that a belter location can rs found in
this vicinity than any yet proposed,
held a meeting last Friday, at which
a cominittce was appointed to confer
with Ui2 Commissioners and ask them
to visit sites on John's branch, six
miles cast of Milan. There nro at
this point some as fine springs as c;in
le found in the State, furnishing
water sufficient for half dozen hospi
tals. Tlie site selected fills the spirit
and letter of the law. It is healthy,
; with abundance of water and adapted
to drainage and aceepsibility to rail
roads. It is remote from marsh ma
larial influences arising from river and
creek swamp, sluggish streams or
stagnant waters of any kind; nn ele
vation sufficient to obtain a pnre at
mosphere and secure thorough ventil
ation of the buildings; land of te-pii-ite
quantity as prescriled in the
act and of good tillable quality, and
has a site of twenty or thirtv aiTs in
extent, for the location of the Hos-
j pital and its appurtenant buildings,
, and has a down drainage.
! Could the Commissioners le in-

duced to examing thus site with its
advantages, we fetl confident they
would select it for the location of the

What tbe Colared Proplr Think.
Iii a conversation last week with
W. II. Daniel, a colored school teach
er here, he told us he did not think
the civil rights bill ought to pass ; that
he was opposed to mixed schools, and
thought the children would do much
better separate. He thinks his people
here are generally opposed to it, and
prefer to have their children educated
separately. It would indeed be a
great misfortune to these people if the
bill should pass, as they would then
be without schools entirely.
The negroes generally of this city

stopped a few moments n.t Frost's Sta
tion and Fulton, arriving at Fort Jef-
fcrsun, six miles this side of Cairo, at
noon, where an hour was spent m
diiiing and rambling over the adjacent
hills. There, all aboard, we arrived
t Cairo at 2 p.m., where we were
met by the Mayor and a numler of
the officers and friends of the city
Sabbath-schools and escorted to the
(rand Central Office, where Hon.
Mr. Webb was introduced and wel
comed the Milan Sabbath-schools to
their city in a short and appropriate
address, to which thanks were return
ed by ltev. J. E. Weaver in behalf
of the excursionists for the pleasant
jrivetinir and kind reception. The cit
izens wtc very kind in showing us
over the city and tendering their hos
pitality. We left the St. Charles Hotel at
2:3) and crossing the river left the
east lKiuk of the Ohio and Mississippi for

A more pleasant trip we have never
enjoyed no disturbance whatever,
which is due to the orderly conduct of
tlie passengers, the prudence and vig

management and jmliteness of Mr.

Tlie following, clipped fro'it the
Courier-Journal, apiIies to Milan as
well aa any town wo know of. We
hope our business men and capifcdLts
wiil seriously consider it. A good
newspaper, well-sustained, v. ill adver
tise tha town and do more toward i
bringing capital and population hoie
thau any one enterprise. We ought
to have more subscribers an 1 adver-
tiscrs than we have, to make a success
of the ExcnAxr.E. Our e.vp' n-e is

It i- not alone the newspaper matter
specially designed its news that attracts
the attention of the public. As ea
gerly as the dispatches ami editorial !
comments of a journal are read, the ! Physician & SllTgeOn,
advertisements attract quite as much j y0lYl,c a, j,Mf
general iutere4. People read adver-!
tisements just as they read personal ' M I L A X , T K N X .
and local items, and in fact advertise- .1":ir'",y" ,

"Tlie Roston News Letter," tlie fm:t '
regular American newspaper, w as es-1
tablished in 1704, but it was a number i
vi ju.u. i-i'.iiv .iri iieini.-iu
at Xew York, with thirty-four adver- j
tisements. It apjicars from this that
America and England went into the;
regular adverti-in- business about the !
same time, with the odds largely in '
tavor ot r.iiglanil. JJut cventu.'.lly
the United States gave a pu.-h to the
business it had nevtr received lx fure,
and business men began to realize that
advertising, instead of a venture, was
a strictly legitimate operation, and
that those who refused to compete
with other men in thus placing their
business before the public, must ex
pect to fall lxdiind. The advent of
the Xew York "Sun" in 1 ;.!, the
"Herald" in 183.), and the -"Tribune"
in 141, introduced some new
ideas in the way .of chis-ifving
advertisements, and very soon such
matter to which was thvired to
ye special prominence was arn,..-,
ed under "l-Kieal Xoticcs, "Jhisnie-s
Xotices, "Special Xotices ami otlu-r
varieties, and extra cliarges made for
the preference thus ;iven. Adver
tising has continued its l-owth until
oflateitisuo uuasual thin for a
Miiide firm to expend a hundred
thousand dollars per annum in that
way, and it is fimnd that no hu-ins
entt'rjiiise can he !rought prt'iiineiii -ly
het'ore the puhlic with tut jppe:r
i!:!f eoiisiiicuouslv in the columns of the
1 lie averaw amount
. . I ' .
,,:,i in the last five vears in tlie i nit-
! ed States f.r advertising was about

verv i um.i. that advertise
generally read. If any one of a prac
tical turn of mind desires to test the
accuracy of such a statement, and at
the same time learn the eiii-et of ad-AT-rt'isinjr
on business, let him adver-
tisC ill tWO lilies in the most obscure
part of some newspaper that he w ant-
to buy a dog. It he does not want
the visitation this will biin-j him. let
him insert a line in the midst of a
batch of other advertisements, that he
will no longer pay his wife's bills, and
then go about among his acquaintances
and observe if there is anything pecu
liar iu their manner that would' seem
to indicate that they had read the
