Our friends, the enemy, got left
in great shape.
The third party don't grow very
fast in Warren County.
-The heavy rains of Thursday no
doubt kept many from the polls.
"Of all sad words of a man beneft,
the saddest are these: 'I am left.'
The returns from the 13th dis
trict, as usual, were the last to get in.
-The total vote of the county was
3G5 less than in the November elec
tion of 188S.
Some good men were defeated.
This could not be avoided, but the
county has a good corps of officers.
Notwithstanding some little i
ternal disatisfaction, the old guar
stood true to the colors when it came
to the vote.
-The large vote received by Mr.
I. W. Smith for Circuit Court Clerk,
9 a flattering testimonial of his effi
ciency in that position.
Returns from all but four of the
districts were brought in Thursday
night, and the result of the county
was known here before 10 o'clock.
The 0th district polled 1 more
vote than in the November election
of 18S8, and the 11th polled 15 more
than in 18S8; every other district in J
the county shows a decrease.
The figures in our statistical table
of the election are all taken from of
ficial tables, except the 13th district.
The figures in that district were fur
nished us by Mr. Win. Sanders, ex
cept for Supreme Judge, which are
estimated. The election in the 13th
district was held by Esq. B. It. Davis,
who, up to the hour of going to press
o'clock Friday evening) has failed
to either bring or send in the official
returns. We don't know that there
is any law requiring election officers
to bring the official returns to' town
the morning after election, but it has
always been customary in this coun
ty, and there is absolutely no
excuse whatever for Mr. Davis' fail
ure to either bring or send the returns
on this occasion. He knew full well
that the people of the county were
anxious to get the correct result as
early as possible, and also knew that
the newspapers could not make up
correct tables without the official re
turns. Mr. Davia has simply mani
fested a spirit of carelessness and in
difference which the people of his
district and the county should re
member when he again asks favors
at their hands.
The Prohibition Vote.
O. Miller, for Circuit Court Clerk,
received 41 votes in the 1st district, 4
in the 8th, 7 in Mh, 3 in the 10th, and
one each in the 11th and 1 1th, a total
of 07 in the county. J. J. Anderson,
for Register, received 2!) votes in the
1st district, 2 in the 2d, and one
each in the 5th, 0th, 10th, 11th, and
13th, a total of 3G in the county. The
prohibition candidates for other offi
ces withdrew before the election.
Hamilton County Democratic.
The Nashville American's Chatta

in the post-bellum history of Hamil

the righteous Dortch and registration

the republican candidate for county

Medicine in Vegetables.
The New York Herald says the
following information may be useful
to some at this season of the year, if
not new to many: Spinach has a
direct effect upon the kidneys. A
common dandelion used as greens is
excellent for thi same trouble. As
paragus purges the blood. Celery
acts admirably upon the nervous
system and is a cure for rheumatism
and neuralgia. Tomatoes act upon
the liver. Beets and turnips are ex
cellent appetizers. Lettuce and cu
cumbers are cooling in their effects
upon the system. Onions, garlic,
leeks, olive and shallots, all of which
are similar, possess medical virtue of
a marked character, stimulating the
circulatory system, and the conse
quent increase in the saliva and the
gastric juice promoting digestion.
Red onions are an excellent diuretic,
and the white ones are recommended
to be eaten raw as a remedy for in
somnia. A soup made from onions
is regarded by the French as an ex
cellent restorative in debility of the

It is intimated by the Sergeant-at-Arms
of the House that the Speaker
may shortly be expected to resort
to finding members who are absent
in order to secure a quorum. This is
legitimate and right. " Every mem
ber of the House who is in good
health owes it to his constituents and
the country .to be in attendance
every day during the session, and if
he absents himself without leave, or
after leave has been revoked, he
should be fined for every absent day.
