It seems that the eleven school children
who died so suddenly at Jacob's Mill, a lit
tle village in Northern Vermont, were not
poisonci at the brook, as at first supposed,
but were the victims of diphtheria, induced
by foul pools and sinks under and around
the school house. The warning is season
The forthcoming strike at Fall River,
Mass, that is to involve 12,000 operatives
is the work of only S00 men, expert spin
ners, whose places can not be easily filed,
mid who thus have not only the mills but
the whole body of operatives at their mercy.
The spinners alone threaten to strike ; the
other operatives do not desire to take part
in the movement, and will not; but they
will suffer by it, nevertheless. In other
words, 12,000 persons will be thrown out
of employment by the conduct of 800 spin
ners. The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun says : "Several prominent
Southern Republicans who are very aux
jiina for die nomination of General Grant
express great disgust at the manner in
wh'ch the Federal patronage in the South
is being manipulated in the interest of
Secretary Sherman for the Presidency.
They say that the Sherman candidacy is
being worked up in the most open and un
blushing manner, and that official patron
Bge has never before been prostituted to
such an extent as it is now in this in
terest." "The arrogant and supcrcillious senator
from New York comes out of the encounter
with Mr. Lamar badly soiled in plumage
and worse than ever soured in temper."
And where the cause lVr wonder? A se
verer thing was never uttercu than was
Lamar's closing retort. "My language was
very harsh, very strong such as. uo true
man would deserve, such as no brave man
would bear." It was an unsatisfactory
"come back" for Conkling to say "you're
another;" but language had been exhausted
by Lamar, and there was nothing else left
for Conkling to say.
So a filet fever became so prevalent and
of such a malignant type, jn Paducah, a
few days ago, that the Mayor felt called
npon to issue his proclamation, calling
upon citizens coming in contact to change
their clothing before going out into public;
appealed to afflicted families to isolate the
casca, and dispense with ceremonies that
jjnight call crowds together, over the dead.
AU of which wu timely and prudent, and
, erred a good part in arresting the spread
of the terrible disease. Evansvillo has
been ascf.n sufferer from tho same cause;
but Cairo, very fortunately has escaped
Not until this blessed year 1879 have
the taxpayer's of the intensely Repubh
can village of Metropolis seriously consid
ered the necessity for the erection of a
cnooi nous tor the use of her great herd
of black chidren! Cairo, at a time when
three fourths of her voters were Democrats
ud at a time whea fivo sixthi of tl e taxes
were exacted from property owned by Dem
ocratj at auch a time Cairo opened schools
for ber black children, in every rep:.'ct
equal to same grado of iclnoti provided for
the white children. And yet Republicans
are the peculiar friends of the negroes. In
the Radical village of Carbondale, the at
tempt of colored chidren to a ail them
.Mliet of the school privilege provided for
for white children, resulted in an uproar
that promised bloodshed. It is only in
hypocritical gush that Republicans deal
liberally with the black men.
The walking match between Weston
and Brown is creating a greater furore in
London than did the match between Row
ell, Eunis and others in New York. The
usually sedate and austere Johnny Bull has
been kept ou the very tiptoe of excitement
ever since the walk began. When, on the
10th instant, Weston caught up with Brown
the yelling and tumult among the Ameri
can spectators were perfectly deafening.
Weston is not only out-doing hiiuBelf, but
should ho make his 550 miles, he will stand
unquestionably tho champion walker of
the world, besides lining his pockets with
$2,500 of Astlcy's money, which will be a
very comfortable thing to do. We shall
hear the result of the contest to-day.
At the prcs3 convention recently held
iu Bowling Green, Ky., Len Faxon,- of tho
raducah News, with, a view perhaps of de
termining tho utmost limit of human en
durance, inflicted upon tho crowd present,
an original poem of thirty-one six lino
verses ! A more merciless proceeding wo
never heard of. lie commenced in the
following apologetic manner:
TIs atrauge that you, my friends, on whom tho
Have shone In all their brightness, as a rule,
And who have run tho Poet's stud in races,
Should strive to put to unaccustomed paws,
A spavlued, swlnulcd Jackaon't Purchase mule.
And then followed the most relentless
verbal infliction that ever patient humanity
was called upon to endure. Len Faxon is
"TO CANDID PEOPLE."
Dr. Robart's circular, addressed to the
candid citizens of Illinois, will do the South
ern Illinois Normal no good. Written as
an answer to a "Memorial ;" that had its or-
gin in Carbondale or Murphysburo, it ut
terly ignores the most damaging assertions
of the "Memorial;" in a manner confesses
the truth of others less damaging, and be
trays a want of dignity and sincerity of tone
that will not escape the reprobation of tho
most casual reader.
The "Memorial " assumes, in exaggerated
terms, no doubt, that a large majority of
the teachers arc members of the Methodist
church. The answer, while trying to des
troy the force of such a charge, aeknowl
edges, that the time never has been when
Methodist teachers did not form a plurality
of the whole force.
The most potent objection, however, is
that because of the preponderance of Carb
ondale pupils, the institution, which should
confer equal benefits upon all, is wrested
to local uses; and the citizen living else
where is compelled to pay for that which
he does not receive. This most damaging
objection is passed by without any notice
But we started out with no purpose to
discuss the answer in detail. Its general
tone struck us as ill-natured as betraying
more of a desire to crush down those who
complain of the conduct of the school,
than to vindicate the school's management
and reputation; and to that feature we in
tended to confine our remarks. The state
ments of the "Memorial" arc stigmatized
as "insane exaggerations," "dregs of
gossip," "false statements," "shameless cir
cular," "work of an irresponsible stran
ger," "information dropped by loungers on
dry goods boxes," and so on to the end.
Such expressions are regarded as current
coin in the political arena; but in defend
ing the character of a public educational
establishment, against the further mainten
ance of which tully half or more than half
the people are opposed, the language of
the bully is not called for; aud when, as in
this case, the only evidence of the justice
of its application is found in the mere ipse
dixit of the writer, or the unsupported as
scrtion of those who are vitally interested
in making the best showing possible for
the school, its uso is entirely out of place,
if not extremely reprehensible. In his
cooler moments Dr. Robarts himself will
scarcely gainsay this proposition.

ting tearfully alarming, tho average of life
being lessened every year, without any rea
sonable cause, the deatli resulting generally
