Tris Rational (Republican committee;
should send tho Okolona States fire-cater
homo. His presence iii tho North, avowed
ly as a Democratic retailer of nullification
ideas, has not creutod a ripple on the politi
cal urfuce, and is not at all likely to do so.
Anil from this fact Republican editors who
have dosed their readers on this man's
editorial bosh, can lcain of . tho estimate
that has been placed upon their efforts to
mislead tho public in reference to the tenets
of tho Southern Democracy. No body
cares what Col. Harper says as a locturer,
and are equally indifferent as t what he
says as ancditor.
The market price of subterranean holes,
rule hixrh. For instance, Mammoth cave
was sold, the other day, for $200,000. It
was bought by a company of Eastern
capitalists who will proceed at once to put
it in the best possiblo condition to make its
wonders accessible and to be seen uuder
tho best conditions. Tho railroad from
Glasgow Junction will be completed to the
cave, the hotel and surroundings put in the
finest order, the entrance to tho cave made
convenient, the other routes made easy and
secure, and such other facilities for thor
ough exploration as will make a trip
through it a matter of pleasure, instead of
pilgrimage of penance as heretofore. The
Frankfort Yoeman thinks the new owners
will make money out of it something its
former managers always failed to do.
There is a certainty, now, that that in
fernal caukcr upou the Iwdy of the Demo
cratic party, known as tho Tammany hall
organization, w ill be crushed out of exist
ence. The divisions and bitterness it has
brought into ,the Democratic party
have hitherto been confined, in the main,
to the city of New York, an have, there
fore, worked only a local injury. Dut now
the organization has placed itself in direct
antagonism with tho Democratic party of
the State. Because it could not control the
State convention because it could not de
feat the man whose nomination for Govern
or was den.wntled by an overwhelming
majority of tho party, it bolted the conven
tion, and set up the most conspicuous and
mischievous disorganize of its gang as a
bolter candidate. It goes before the peo
ple in open and avowed opposition not to
tho Republican candidate for Governor, but
to the Democratic candidate the regular
nominee of the Democratic party. "I don't
expect to be elected," said J no. Kelly, thebol-
ter candidate, '-but I can carry enough
Democrats with me to beat the Democratic
nominee. In otner words, Joiin Acuy,
pretending that he is a Dcnnyrat, is a
candidate because he believes his candidacy
will work out the election ol the Republi
can nominee. lie thus proclaims liimselt
as hostile to the Democratic ticket of New
York, and as determined to do everything
that lies in his power to elect the Republi
It scarcely seems possible that any hon
est opponent of the Republican party can
cast a vote for Kelly, the bolter, ii view of
the undeniable certainty that, in so doing
he is giving a half vote to the party he op
poses. Yet we are told that 00,000 Tam
manyitcs will vote precisely that way.
For many years we have abhorred the
frauds, tho villainies and dishonest combin
ations of Tammany ; but wo ire not pre
pared to be'icvo that it hai effected a
wholesale sell-out to the Republican party
It is alivo with tricksters and political
charlatans, schemers and dead
beatf, wo know; but it will tell
a tearful story of recreancy,
barter and sale, duplicity and political per
fidy, if as many as ten thousand follow the
bolter nominee- into his alliance with
Conkling and A. B. Cornell. The recreancy
nud corruption of half that number will be
apt to bring nbout the defeat of the Demo
cratic candidate for Governor; but no
honest Democrat is prepared to say that the
utter overthrow and demolition of tho foul
and pestiferous Tunimany nest that will in
cvitably follow, will not Bcrvc as an ample
recompense to tho Democracy of New York
ami of the country at large. For many years
the rotten organization has been a stench in
the nostrils of decent men; and if tho effect
of tho defeat it seeks to bring to tho Demo
cratic party could bo confined to tho limits
of tho State of New York, tho party at
lariro would have 6olid and substantial
cause, in viewing tho final wreck of Tamma
ny, for general rejoicing and honest cxulta
tion over such a result. Let the bolters go
ahead, then, say we, and ''see where they'll

CAIRO BULLETIN; . FRIDAY MOKNING, SEPTEMBER .19, 1870.
When tho lover broke , out in Mcinp'1'8
Mattie Reno's "friend" deserted her he
went into some respectable family. Slattio
gave up her whole time to caring for tho
poor and lowly creatures who wcrestiicken
down by the fever in her neighborhood: All
unmindful of herself, her. wholo thought
seemed to lw given up to thoso alllicted.
Sho was with them day and uiarht tenderly
caring for them. The anxiety and physical
strain, urter a time, fitted her for the fever.
She was taken down with it, and in a few
hours, was a corpse. Some young men in
tho city who had heard of her kind deeds
gavo her a decent burial. Her pall bearers
were two clergymen and four young men.
fthough a sinner in ono sense,
sho had a Heart as loving and tender as an
angel's. The local reporter docs well to
say : "Her acts siuce the epidemic, warrant
the placing of her name among the heroines
of tho present plague."
Ifthcbiblo story is all true, wo should
liko to stand by at "tho lust day," and hear
Jesus pronounce judgment on that woman.
It is barely possible that sho might have ft
higher seat and a brighter crown than 6omc
of those who drew their skirts a little closer,
and cave her a look of bitter contempt as
they passed her on the street. She sacrificed
her life to the suffering poor.

A TRICK OF THE CLAIRVOYANTS
In drawing out the (acts of personal
or family history, clairvoyants do not al
ways ask uirect questions, but rather make
statements with an implied interrogation,
to which the victim, otttntimes entirely
unconsciously, responds by word or look,
gesture, or pei naps by all three; an J, at a
later stage ot the interview, these secret
facts are artfully given back to the victim,
who has no recollection of having pre
viously imparted them, and w ill not believe
that he has done so, but prefers to believe
that he is in the presence of divinity.
It is not only possible, but easy, for a
practical adept to draw out in this way
minute and claWate details of secret fam
ily history. A few years ago, while con
nected with one of the public institutions
of this city, I made a number of experi
ments in this line. I tuld the patients af
flicted with various forms of nervous and
allied disorders, not to tell me about their
symptoms nor give me any facts in their
cases, but to let me tell them; and then I
would proceed to indicate, after the uinn
nerof a clairvoyant, the locality of theirmal
adies and the history .f their troubles. In
the majority of cases I was successful, and
made out the diagnosis to the satisfaction
of those who sought my advice, and with
good reason, for nothing I could do pre
vented them from telliug me, although I
asked them no questions: unintentionally
and unconsciously, they would guide me at
every stage of the interview. By a little
practice any one can easily acquire this
art ; and long study, such as professional
clairvoyants bestow upon this subject, de
velops great skill in thus managing and
dcluuin'' tue unwary and non-expert.

HOW TREY RAN.
Old Skinner is a great lover of war rem
iniscences, and is not slow to tell of his
own exploits in that way. As with most
men, who pride themselves on a war record,
Skinner also .gives tho bet side of his
tale to his own army. Ho was telling ono
of his grandchildren recently of a famous
battle in which ho was engaged. His dtfa.
cription of the flying bulls, booming of
cannon, and charge of tho troops was very
vivid, and the, hoy listened with increased
interest. At last, when Skinner stopped to
fill his pipe, tho boy gsked:
"And did the enemy runl"
"Did they run?" raid Skinner. "Great
Scott, how they did run I : My dear boy,
thy ran so liko thunder that wo ron three
miles to keep out of their way, an', if wo
hadn't thrown our guns away, they'd have
run over us, sure." Oil City Derrick.
The ixm-ExcuriK climate. The influ
ence of climate upon a constitution subject
ed to a trying change in atmospheric condi
tions, in water, and in food, is often marked
and disastrous. Disorders of tho bowels
and of tho liver, frequently terminating fa
tally, areprono to attack the tourist by land
or voyager by sea in unaccustomed latitude
more particularly those near the equator.
Tho best medical protection against irregu
larities of the bowels, stomach and Jiver,
not only from the above, but whatever
causo arising, is Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters, a. medicine in wide nud increasing de
mand in sultry portions of this hemisphere,
and also in the tropics. Travelers, emi
grants, dwellers and temporary sojourners
in malarious districts vfso it very extensively
as a safe guard.
HOW TO GROW KAT. Just UOW when SO
many fat people are trying to grow lean, we
would suggest that it would be a good idea
for the lean ones to try and grow fat. To
do this keep the bowels and liver regulated
with Mott's Liver Fills, and your digestion
will be pood, and you will grow fat rapidly.
