There is a fitness in Henry Ward

"A government expert, sent out to exam
ine the culture of the beet Toot and its
manufacture into sugar, as practised in sev

It is only necessary forjus to to beet root'
that aim, and the sugar's bound to come.
PnociON's Bourbon says: "Samuel 8.
Marshall, of McLeansboro, the veteran con
gressman of Southern Illinois, is resting on
his laurels. The day is not far distant
when an admiring people will remember
Mr. Marshall's lifetime devotion to the
principles of the Fathers, and will call him
from his retirement. Such men should
never be lost to the State." We say
"Amen and Amen" to all that, right heartily.
Tns insane notion is entertained by
some that Wise, the balloonist, and his dare
devil companion, who went up in a balloon
from the St. Louis fairgrounds about eigh
teen days ago, are "lying low" and keeping
themselves "shady" in the pine forests of
Canada, for the purpose of working up a
big sensation. Wise and his companion
have joined Donaldson and Grimpton, and
all of them, divested of the carnal part, are
shadowless creatures of the "blue beypnd."
The Ohio clerks in Washington were
sent home to Ohio to vote the Republican
ticket, tho public interests submitted to
their keeping, hobbling aloag, meanwhile,
without direction. Four hundred clerks
were allowed ten days' lcajre of absence,
their pay going on as usual. By this ras
cally proceeding the general government is
compelled to pay out not less than $10,000,
to secure 400 votes for the Republican
. ticket in the State of Ohio. We needs
most have a "strong government? to stand
aucb damnable doings as these.

Tub liability of tho city of Pittsburgh
Hid tho county of Allegheny for tho prop
erty destroyed during the great riot of 1877,
has been declared by tho supremo court of
Pennsylvania, and, unless Pittsburgh fol
lows tho examplo of Memphis, find blots
herself out of existence, her responsibility
will amount to 14,000,000 or $5,000,000.
But slio is not entitled to a great deal of
symputliy. As much, or more thuu any
other city in tho United States, sho is re
sponsible for tho condition of public affairs
that precipitated tho scenes for which sho
now is held to answer.
The removal of great accumulations of
pus from tho lungs of consumptives has been
successfully accomplished thousands of
times frequently of late by Cairo physi
cians. A lew clays ago I'rot. wmttaker,ot
tho Ohio Jlcdical college, invited his class
of students to accompany him to tho Cin
cinnati hospital, it being his purpose to
show "the boys" how it was done. He se
eded his subject, made the necessary puuet-
ureiu the side, inserted his minute pump
ing apparatus ana pumped out
not ' tho pus; but tho patient's
life. Tho patient died almost in
stantly, and although "the boys" saw "how
it wis done," they are not overwhelmed with
the brilliancy of the success achieved. The
coroner of Hamilton county has taken the
body in charge, with a view of determining
tho extent of the Professor's responsibility.
EX GOY. BROSS AND THE LONG
Ex-Goveunoh William Bross, of Chicitgo
sseins to have retired from nn active par
ticipation in the affairs of the times, busi
ness as well as politics. He still retains
an interest in the Tribune, wo believe, but
has had no part in its editorial manage
ment for several years. He is a very clever
old gentleman, whom our peoplo of a
quarter of a century ago will recall us the
"avaunt courier' or earliest expounder of
"Black Republicanism" in Southern Illinois.
In the early fall of 1830, he visited Mound
City to make a speech. There was hilt one
Republican in the town, at that time, and
unfortunately for the "Deacon's" prospects
of a crowd, this representative of the party
was too drunk to cither walk or talk.
Two or three Democrats and Fillmorcites
interested themselves, however, and secured
for tho Deacon a very respect
able crowd. Ho made a two
hour's speech addressed himself directly
to the reason and common sense of
his hearers; and, although, afterwards, tho
number of Republicans in town seemed to
remain as before, a single voter, yet, to tho
surprise of almost everybody, when tho bal
lots of the November election were counted,
there were eleven votes for John C. Fre
mont. From Mound City tho Deacon passed on
to Cairo. He 6poke from the steps of the
Taylor House here, and some of the mis
chievous Democrats thinking to annoy the
old fellow, hired old negro Reub to take a
position within a few feet of him, and to
applaud boisterously, especially when there
wasno occasion lor applause, itcui) was
faithful to his contract for awhile, but final
ly became an interested and respectful list
ener. Thia meeting tho first Republican meet
ing ever held in Cairo was photographed.
The Deacon and old Reub on the hotel steps,
and tho handful of listeners on the ground
below, were all caught as they stood, just
before the conclusion of the speaking. The
original picture is still in the hands of ono
of our citizens Ex-SIayor Wilson, probably
It is an interesting relic; and tho old Gov
ernor ought to secure it, and transcribe it in
oil, that those who come after him may
know how Republicanism, through his
agency, took root in Southern Illinois.
IN DISTRICTS FORMERLY RAVAGED Dy
tevcr and ague, immunity from tho dreaded
scourge is enjoyed by those who have ren
dered their systems malaria proof with Hos
teler's Stomach Bitters, the best preventive
and remedy. Quinine cannot compare
with it in efficacy, and is anything but
safe. Physicians commend the Bitters for
its medial resuscitating - properties and tho
closest analysis reveals nothing in tho com
position of a deleterious nature It docs
not deteriorate, is an agrecablo cordial as
well as a potent medicine, and when mixed
with brackish or unwholesome water neu
tralizes its hurtful properties. The deni
zens of malarial localities, not only in tho
United States, but in the tropics, regard it
as an invaluable protection, and in hosts of
families it is kept constantly on hand. As
the tido of emigration spreads farther west

pelled to encounter tho vicissitudes of cli
mate, constantly increase.
