Tick Democratic ticket of Union county
is: For Sherill', CSeorge llarringcr; for
county commissioner, William Eaves; for
coroner, Willis Angell. This U a strong
ticket, und will be elected by a large
Tiik Farmer and Fruit Grower of Anna,
under a portentous heading, says: "The
county fair will he held as advertised, und
thu great show will be at JimcslKiro as stated.
Thero is no danger of the yellow fever, us

tho StuUj of Illinois. Therefore, all seusu-

Ox Motnliiy lust two iiulios of snow fell

restiiijj; thu irjjresn of tho yellow fever
pliifjiK'. lint we must wait for d:iys itml
even weeks; und in the meautime the
plague will lie buy ut its terrilile work tif
The Kenton Slundavd, of the 7th inst.,
contains tho following:
Mr. Josh Mann' boy, Hubert K. Mann, nged
about Syeais. died very suddenly on lust Monday.
The boy was taken with a chill, and did not seem
lobe very sick. He laid downou the bed. und soon
afterwards raised up to vomit. He vomited pure
blood, and nhen his mother laid him back on the
pillows he was dead. His father thinks that lu
vomiting he must have buisted blood vessels, and
bled to death almost Instantly. Itobcrt was a
strong .bright boy. aud the comniniilly will fjinpa'
tlilr.e deeply with the bereaved family.
If that case had occurred in Cairo the
ularni of yellow fever would have spread
with the rapidity of lightning.
The Kenton Standard is indulging pleas
ant dreams of the prosperity to he bestowed
upon that place hy the Kellvillo and Eldo
rado railroad, now in process of construc
tion. That the Standard may not lie disap
pointed may not learu to its sorrow that
such dreams "go hy contraries" we sin
cerely hope, Kut wc have liecn through
nn experience that has convinced us of the
uncertainty of hopes based upon anticipated
prosperity to result from railroad building
railroads built by county subscriptions.
However, Kenton had no outlets but dirt
roads, and she may get back from the K. &
E. railroad more than she proposes to give
in aid of its consf ruction. At least, she w ill
be practically nearer Cairo, and can all'ord
to pr.y something handsome for such a priv
ilege. The doctors of Memphis have been disa
greeing about the disease now prevailing in
that city. Some of them contend that it is
nothing more than malarial fever. In n
communication to the Avalanche, Dr. White
says that Memphis has "a yellow fever epi
demic, and also a more fearful one still of
what authors now call splenic fever, knowu
in Texas as black jaundice und in lower
Mississippi us the yellow disease, etc. They
are twin sisters, with natural laws nearly
similar, and we had them together in 187U.
Above Hatchic and aliout Horn Lake the
black jaundice showed itself more distinctly
as ba-aturia, while m the city only the yel
low fever predominated. It is the reverse
now, our dead are black und spotted, not
bronzed. The poison that produces the
jaundice is so overpowering that it only re
quires one paroxysm and not three as usual
to prostrate the patient, and but few have
the lui'inaturia, but the bowels are loaded
with the black material usually thrown oil'
bv the kidnevs." '
The sickness in the Porter family, living
in a swampy location about two miles from
this city, has created considerable excite
ment and alarm among our people. Many
of them believe it genuine yellow fever, but
this conclusion does not seem to be alto
gether justilled by a scientific diagnosis of
the cases und a consideration of the pecu
liar surroundings of the family. The Por
ter residence is about two miles from the
upper levee, und has a pond iif stagnant
water in its front and a swamp in its rear.
The man who settled the place lost nearly
all his family by malarial fever, and his
colored successor was driven from the
place by persistent usMtults of bilious fever
on himself, wife and children. Mr. Porter
nearly died from the effects of a malarial
attack since he became the occupant of the
place, und his family are now falling vic
tims of the same disease. In all probabil
ity, thu Porters would be suffering and dy
ing from the effect of malarial poisoning
even if yellow fever were not epidemic
South of us and very close to our doors.
Kut, if we admit that thu Porters are down
with yellow fever, there is nothing in the
admission that need give to the people of
Cniro unreasonable uhirm. The Porter
place is two miles from the cross levee, and
if our olllcials act with prudence wo have
no more to fear from the existence of the
fever thero than at Hickman. They should
isolate the Porters, und the good people of
our city should by volunteering their ser
vicesby sending to Mr. Porter und his
stricken household medicine, provision, etc
render unnecessary the daily presence of
that gentleman in the city at the post-ol'
flee, groceries nnd dry-yoods stores.
Smokers, if yon wish u flue "Key West"
or "Imported" cigar, call at Korsnieyer's
cigar store. It is the only place in the city
almost daily in receipt of fresh goods.
OvsiKtis. Harry Walker receives in
K 1 order daily by express the best Select
llaltininre Oysters, which he is ready to
" fvii in any stylo day or night. Ho will
alsodUptmetif them by tliecnn at the low
t'st prices. Do not full to call at the Crystal
Two Noted Grave Houiikrs. Our
readers will remember the account given in
thcM.' columns of thu robbing of the grave
of thu Hon. Scott Harrison, in Ohio, last
May, the body' being found in thu dissect
ing room of the Ohio Medical College.
Public indignation justly brands any man
as a scoundrel who w ill rob the grave of
the dead, lint there are two noted grave
robbers in the country, so far from being
the subjects of thu peo
ple's wrath, are universally lauded
for their virtues. Thu reason is plain.
While the former class steal thu dead bodies
of our loved ones to submit them to the dis
secting knife, these only rob the graves to
restore the living victims toour hearts and
homes. Their names Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and pleasant Purgative
Pellets are household words thu world
over. The Golden Medical Discovery cures
consumption, in its early stage, and a.l
bronchial, throat and lung affections.
Pleasant Purgative Pellets are the most val
uable laxative and cathartic.
