TiiETailroads connecting Kansas City
-with St. Louis have reduced passenger fairs
from that point to St. Louis to fifty cents.
And yet people are not satisfied. They
must have Pullman car bertha and meals
thrown in, with an occasional chTomo and
a sherry cobbler to relieve tho monotony of
the three-hundred mile jaunt.
The Republican representatives ia Cou-
gress have heard from their constituents
heard the boom from Chicago, and very
singularly, many of them, find themselves
hand-in-glove with the Democrats, protest
ing that it wopt do to surround the polls
with bayonets. The stalwarts of the Sen
ate tried to gag these impudent fellows
who felt disposed to heed the voice from
heme; but the gag wouldn't stick; and
now the probabilities ' are that the appro
priation bills will become laws, although
saddled with quite all the conditions the
Democrats ever contended for.
TnE new revenue law will take effect on
the 1st day of July, and one of its provis
ions is that property thereafter forfeited to
vauj mi tuc arm iitjrmint of the pres
ent year's taxes, will bo subjected to a
charge of 25 per centum in the wuy of in
terest, besides the usual cost. This penalty
is not retro-active, however; that is, it docs
not apply to forfeitures taken heretofore. 1
Present forfeited taxes will remain subject
to the old penalties,the Legislature correctly
concluding that it would probably enforce
the abandonment of much property, which
under the operation ot tho old law, might
be redeemed. Hence the limitation of the
penalty to future forfeitures.
Generals Ewixo and Rice have been in
consultation in Washington and have de
cided to make such a canvass of Ohio as
laa not been made in years. Democratic
members of congress from other states
have volunteered to get into Ohio and do
nil they can to help the ticket. Tho Dem
corats realize they will liave to overcome
an all powerful money and federal official
influence, and they are going to make that
fact an issue of the campaigu. Foster, the
Republican candidate, is a rich man, and
will spend his money treely to be elected,
as he is full of ambition to bo not only
governor of Ohio, but at least senitor. A
eat in the senate was always in his mind
when he was in congress.
Toe Democrats of Ohio leel well assured
that great triumph awaits them in
October. The ticket they have put in the
field is a most unexceptionable one, and
the platform adopted is ono that ought to
unite all the elements in Ohh that are op
posed to the Republican party. Xwing and
!Uce are able men, and both of them wero
gallant soldiers in t'.io late war. As Fos-
ter, the Republican candidate, stayed nt
home and made money, his party are com
pletely estopped from the use of tho crim
son nether garment, or of clap-trap appeals
to prejudices of the ex-soldiers. In short,
the prospect of a Democratic victory is
most encouraging. All the influence tho
Republican party can bring to bear to de
feat Ewing will be employed. Money will
be brought from New England and "Wash
ington; voteriwill be imported by scoresand
hundreds, and no "stone will remain un
'"turned" the turningof which will glvca voto
to Foster. But the Democrats are not un
intuitu! of the importing of the contest,
ad will "be thar or tharabjuU" continually.
THE STATE NORMAL SCHOOLS.
TlSe pooplo of Ja:kson county, or at least
a rery largo and respectablo clement of that
peoplo, are protesting against tho sectarian
ism and political stalwartisui of the South
era Illinois Normal school. It is openly
asserted by tho neighboring newspapers,
that to secure a situation as teacher in that
institution, it is essential that the applicant
be a member of tho Methodist church, and
avirulenl hathr 0f tho Democratic party.
That the PrcskUuc of tho Normal is an in
tense and uncompromising Republican and
a licensed minister of tho M. E. church, is
not denied; nor can it bo successfully de
nied, as is qiuantly observed by a cotempo
rary, that "one might throw bricks at the
teachers of tho school u whole day and
never hit a Democrat." Tho President has
denied that ho has been influenced by sec
tarian prejudices in tho selection of his as
sistants, and tho public may, wo take it,
accept this denial as sincere and honest. To
the fact that the President is a Methodist,
and quite as widely known as a minister of
the gospel as he is as an educator, and not
to any special purpose on his part, may be
ascribed the presence of so many Metho
dists among his assistants. Upon the prin
ciple that "birds of feather flock together,"
the Methodist teachers of the country
gravitate toward this school, andshould tho
President close his eyes and select indis
criminately from tho throng of applicants,
the choice would, almost inevitably, fall
upon a communicant of that church. But
putting all this aside, there are objections
to the Normal schools ot the country, that
are absolutely insuperable.
1st. As the profession of tho school
teacher is an honorable and remunerative
one, parties who elect to pursue it, should
fit themselves for tho pursuit of it at their
2d. From the best data obtainable it has
been ascertained that less than one-fourth
the irraduates of the Normal schools adopt
the profession of teaching. The women,
or a majority of them, marry off shortly
after leaving the school, and settle clown tb
domestic duties, while a large per cent of
tho masculines utterly ignore their obliga
tions to tcack, and embnrk in any business
that offers controlling inducements. Hence,
if these estimates be true, more than three
fourths of the immense sums that arc ap
propriated for the support of the Normal
schools, are absolutely squandered, without
aiding the cause of popular education ia
3d. The Normal schools, although
supported by the general public,
serve as local educational establishments
to the communities in which they are
located thus failing to bestow equal ben
efits upon all.
4th, The State should net educate mea
or women lor the pursuit or any learned
profession in civil life. Require a high
standard of qualifications in our tenchm,
and pay them a remunerative salary, and
without the expenditure of a dollar by the
State, the supply of educated teachers will
equal the demand. Give no teacher a situ
ation unless he is well qualified to teach
a master of the best methods as well as of
the branches he is required to teach pay a
salary that will allure men and women into
the adoption of the profession as a means
of livelihood, and no fears need be enter
tained that the standard of our schools will
be lowered. Self-supporting Normal
schools will become as uumerous and flour
ishing as the medical schools of the day,
and the St.ite will not, then, be culled upon
to educate, perhaps a dozen persons, to
secure the continued services of one.
A STALWART INSULT TO THE DUST
OF UNION HEROES.
During the war a horse thief, named
Carter, was killed by the 17th Kentucky
cavalry, in the town of Albion, Edwards
county, and tho body was buried near tho
cemetery in which now sleep a number of
Union soldiers. As the decorators wero
leaving the cemetery on the 30th ultimo,
they found the grave of this horse thief
literally buried in flowers. The Republi
cans present would listen to no explanations
or conjectures that did not point to the net
of decorating Carters grave, as a "Demo
cratic outrage" as a premeditated insult
to the Union dead, buried in the cemetery
and great and universal was the excitement.
Democrats deprecated the act; but the loyal
stalwarts treated their protestations with
disdain. The flowering of Carter's grave
was tho work of a "copperhead," and if tho
guilty man was found ho shouldn't live in
Albion. The excitement became so intense,
that the editor of the Albion Journal was
moved to offer a reward often dollars for
tho name or names of the man or men who
committed the sacrilege. The Mt. Carmel
Register, from which paper wo gather tho
facts hero detailed, Bays that tho Journal
man had no expectation that tho reward
would be claimed, but much to hissurpriso
the offer had been made public but a short
time when two young men appeared, and,
giving their names as the guilty parties,
asked that tho edlto to Uu J ovct the 10

tho editor denuded that they go before a

tho f 10, and didn't scare worth a cent, as
tho following affidavit, made a few minutes
later, sufficiently verifies:
State of Illinois, Edwards Co' ei.
Joel Churchill and Enoch Copyngton,
after first being duly sworn according to
law, upon their oaths stato that they did on
sho JOth day of May' A. D. 180, decorate
tho graves of Carter, with flowers, tho
said Carter being tho person shot by
tho 17th Ky. Calvalry at this place I during
the war. Enoch J. Conyngton
Subscribed and sworn to before we this
10th day of June, A. D. 1870,
M. Campbell, N. P.
With this affidavit in his hands, and tho
confessed culprits under his eye, what did
tho editor do? Did ho raise a howling
Radical mob and drive the rascals out of
Edwards county? Did he post them as
dastardly copperheads who hated even the
dust of the dead Union soldier? Did he
denounce them as monsters, who should
be kicked from the society of decent men?
He certainly did not. The guilty pair was
neither mobbed nor denounced, because
alas that the truth must assert itself both
of them wero loud-mouthed, brawling Re
publicans, and sons of two of the mcst
rampant nnd vicious Etalwarts of Edwards
county! That's why Churchill and Con
yngton were not hounded out of the county,
and that's why the Albion Journal, toning
down its ferocity, concluded his public
allusion to the unwelcomed discover', by
the milk-and-water observation that "if
men want to make fools of themselve s,
there is no law to prevent them."
And thus it has come out that the oaly
men in Edwards county capable of the das
tardly meanness of oflcring a gratuitous
insult to the memory of the dead Union
heroes, were found'among the stalwart Pie
publicans. TlIE STOMACH CANNOT llEKHKlOHTEilYNith
greater trash than a violent drastic purga
tive. True, such a medicine relieves con
stipation for the time, but at the expense
great injury to the intestinal canal, wlich
it both inflames and weakens, thus unfiling
it for the performance of its proper func
tions. Widely different is the action of
Hostetter s Stomach JJitters, a tonic aperi
ent whjch produces effects prompt, ini'eed,
but never violent and convulsing. The
purity of its botanic ingredients, its unob
jectionable flavor, its genial influence upon
the mind, and the thoroughness of its rem
edial action in casus of constipation, liver
complaint and dyspepsia, combine to ren
der it a most desirable family specific. It
increases both physical vigor and substance,
tranqtiilizes and invigorates the nervous
system, and gives an unwonted relish for
the food. A wineglass three times daily is
about the average dose.

'I have long suffered all the horrors arising
from an inactive liver, and am going to tho
