The Paducuh News says:- "The last
election for Congress in the Cairo, Illinois,
District was very close, Hartzell, the Demo
cratic rundidate, receiving a majority of
only twenty votes. It Inhooves the Democ
racy of tlmt district to look sharp and put a
good man in the field as well as to put in
their ltest licks, as they have a very narrow
margin to work on. We don't want Ken.
Wiley or any other Iladical to carry South
ern Illinois, for we have a sort of un affec
tion for that section of the country." Our
friends on the other side of the river may
rest easy on this score. We have half a
dozen Democrats in the dij-trict, all of them
in training, any one of w hom will lead the
Democracy to victory next Fall.
TnE Valley Clarion wants to enthuse on
the coming Fourth of July, the one hund
redth anniversary of the capture of Fort
Gage and Kaskaskia. In the course of an
article on the subject it sayg that "on the
evening of July 4, 1778, General George
Rogers Clarke, with his Virginia volunteers,
captured Fort Gage and took possession of
the town of Kaskaskia. This was the end
of British rule in Illinois. On the Fourth
of July, one hundred vears will have
rolled away since the stars and stripes first
floated over Garrison Hill, opposite Kaskas
kia, ia token that Rritish control of the fair
Prairie State had ended, and that henceforth,
for all time, this was American soil,
and its inhabitants American citizens." It
then proceeds to suggest "that the only ap
propriate place for a Centennial jubilee in
commemoration of this gTcat historical
event, is on the top of Garrison Hill, on the
ruins of old Fort Gage, overlooking Kaka.- j
kia, the old historic territorial capital of
Illinois, and from whence the American
flag first triumphantly kiscd the sunlight
of Illinois, as the red cross of St. George
came down, and the sun set on British rule
in the "Illinois country," forever. Let us
all join in urging that a Centennial pil
grimage If made by the jople of our
State, on this anniversary day, to the spot
where the fla of freedom was first unfurled
in the great Mississippi valley." Further
on it also iuutn "Gen. Ja. Shi-lU
the Irish orator, patriot, soldier and states
man, who, near a half century ago, taught
the village school at Kaskaskia, and ltcgan
the practice of his profession there, under
the shadow of Garrison Hill, 1? selected as
the orator of the dav."
The Syracuse Journal relates a remarks
ble story. It says one of ingenious women
whose business it is to examine mutilated
and illegible currency in the treasury ha
recently come to grief. This woman had
so ably performed this intricate work for
several years as to have become almost in
dispensable, not only to the department but
scarcely less so to numerous banks in differ
ent parts of the country, who but for her
patience, must have lost considerable sums
in worn currency. Her skill in rc-storing
what looked like a hopeless nus w as mar
velous, and In consideration of her pen
verance in this direction, tome of the tanks
have from time to time attested their appre
ciation of the material benefit thu derive
by handsome donations of money, one or
two, it is understood, paying her as high as
$1,000 a year. I take equal pride in tl
gallantry of such men and the ability of
such a woman. Too often are women made
to feel that they gain nothing
by marked fidelity! These gifts
from the bunks were, of course, in addition
to the regular salary paid by the Treasury,
off 1,200. For a considerable time it wax
sadly noticed that this woman was mani
festly falling into the insidious power of a
terrible siren. Often and again, it could
not 1)0 denied, she was not quite herself
long before the hour for the close of work.
Admonitions, kind and gentle, and warn
ings oft repeated, were of no avail. She
was hojtelessly enthralled. At last she
came to the office one morning already tto
oblivious to faithfully jterform her usual
task, und, a patience hud long since censed
to lie a virtue, a carriage wus called ami
she was sent, a victim of alcohol to her
home, there to find that the ominious yeli
low envclojie containing u notice of her dis
missal from service had preceeded her
coming. Strange to say, her predecessor in
the same position, who had served long ami
acceptably, but for thi weakness, was dis
charged for the same cause.

estimated that in the United States eighty
thousand drunkards die annually, twenty

use of ' temperance bitters" and "tor.5...
which are, for the most part composed of
whisky that lias been rcputiatcd by the
"bur," but by a little "doctoring' and
"puffing" sttcedily Itccomcs a favorite "cure
all." The fart that Dr. It V. Pim.e, ()f
Buffalo, N. Yn and -his assistant chemists,
do not use one drop of spirits in preparing
his family medicines, has induced those ut
terly ignorant of the rudimentary princi
ples of chemistry to attempt the inanufac
ture of "temperance" medicines; but like
many other impositions, thut which they
sought to rival and elitroy lives and flour
ishes after them. Dr. Ilerce's Golden Med
ical Discovery is yet tho standard remedv
for the cure of coughs, colds consump
tion, liver complaint, blotches, pimples, tu
mors, and all blood diseases. Chronic con
stipation readily yields to the mild and ef
ficient action of his Pleasant Purgative Pel
lets, while Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion readily cures those diseases and weak
nesses peculiar to women. Are you suffer
ing with some chronic malady? If so, am!
you wish to employ medicines that arc
scientifically prepared, that are refined and
purified by the chemical process employed
in their manufacture, that are positive in
their action and spec ific in the cure of the
various forms of disease for which they are
recommended, use Dr. Pierce's Family
Medicines, lull particulars in Pierce's
