The Republicans have done their do,
and uut forth their ticket: and now the
Democrats are to meet in Cincinnati, on
the 22nd to name a ticket that can beat
them. In the national Democratic conven

take 493 to make a choice. Ot this num
ber it is claimed that Tilden has 184, and
the rest is, divided ou other aspirants, or
not known how they will vote. So, it
must be seen that, the work of selectiag a
ticket is to be done after the delegates
reach Cincinnati and compare notes with
each other. If the Democrats make a
popular and harmonious nomination they
will elect their ticket.
We have searched long and diligently
for a suitable man to represent this part of
the great state of Illinois in the general as
sembly. We longed to find some one upon
whose merits we could exercise all our
powers of commendation in whose praise
we might be justified in exhausting the
catalogue of complimentary terms, which
we have carefully hidden away U our desk.
The galaxy of illustrious names
passed before our mind's eye like a grand
panorama! glistening with stars ot dazzling
brightness: but none seemed to suit our
faucy until we came nearly to the end,
wheu, lo and behold ! there was one which
shone forth like one of Edison's electric
lights, whose splendor darkened those
which had gone before. It was the last
name on our list, which should have
been first. In letters of sulphur
and brimstone we read: ''Justus
Cunningham." He must be our man. We
wanted a man of brains, of honor, ot abil
ity. We wanted a man of physical as well
as mental power; who could stand face to
face with the greatest intellects of the legis
lature and meet them in fiery debate, and
who could endure the fatigue of an
exciting campaign. Mr. Cuuuiugham was
the very man we had been looking for.
He is an able lawyer, a forcible and log
ical speaker, and would soon become the
leading spirit in the hall of Illinois. He
understands the needs and wishes
of the people, and knows
exactly how to meet them. Our voice is.
tliorefore.for Justus for representative in the
state legislature from this senatorial dis
trict. All business now seems to point to and
wit for the harvest. It is the great source
of wealth to our county. A few days more
and it will be thrown upon the markets of
tlie country; the exchange will return to
our people, thousands and tens of thous
aads of dollars. Then the days of settle
ment with the merchant, blacksmith,
laborer, and payment of that note or mort
?ae and perhaps the poor printer, doctor
and lawyer will each receive their dues.

owe our business and business success.
Without the farmer, what would the wealth
ot our county be? If the farmer prospers,
we all prosper. If he fails, we all fail.
Our sympathies ever flow out to the farmer.
We want him provided with the best and
most reliable information touching the
best manures for his soil, the best manner
to till his crops, and how to secure the
greatest possible yield of grain from his
lauds, aud the best possible price for his
stock, produce, etc. Indeed, inasmuch as
the agricultural interests are the
principal features of our business aud
calling, every opportunity should be ex
teuled by legislative enactments and other
wise, to develop the agricultural interests
of the country. True it is, one business in
terest of our country should not be fostered
at the expense of any other branch of our
industry; but those industries which are
the most vital should first be considered,
sustained and supported. Let our farmers
pride themselves in their calling; develop
their stock and their lands; beautify and
improve their homes, each according to his
judgment and tastes. No calling is sus

Rhv read by Clitrlet William Krauk during tlie
eradiutitie eiercien ot the i tiro utti m-dooi, rn
eveuiue. Juue 4th. lsSO.J
Life has appropriately been termed au
ocean, on which the fierce trumpet of the
storm hath summoned up her thundering
bands Hnd its waters are dashed iu foam.
We are the vessels that are to sail for a
brief time upon life's ocean. We seem but
mere specks upon this unknowu deep, but
this must not discourage us. we must strug
gle with its dangers and try to overcome
them. On our voyage outward we will en
counter storm after storm, tempest after
tempest, in tact our whole passage will
prove to be one continuous struggle with
the inauv enemies of mankind.
Ltt us then see to it that we be as sea
worthy, sturdy aud strong as possible, in
order that we may find our way through
the mists and fogs that will envelop us.
To assume this shape much care for the
full development of all the faculties of
which we are possessed must be taken.
We cannot hope to safely follow, nor can
any chart be drawn of our route, for time
produces many changes. The rocks of
superstition and ignorance which were once
in the way, have disappeared to some ex.
tent, but huge boulders of corruption and
infidelity have reared their heads whre
once was found deep water aud a safe
A brief experience soon teaches us that
the channel is decidedly narrow and hard
to follow, but as the bright star Polaris
guides the manner on his course, so does
the brighter star of hope shine to guide the
! mariner on life's voyige into the quiet and
Kiiiiirlit Imvpn of 'rest.'' We must suffer
this star aud ourselves, for without hope
we can accomplish but little. Without Imp
despondency fastens upon us, and from de
spondency we fall into despair from which
we seldom can escape. While watching
this bright star of the future, we
must not forget that persistent effort is
necessary to the end. and consequently to
secure the success of tlie voyage. It is
plain from even the uature of things that
perseverance shall, and almost always does,
attain the end it seeks. We see proofs of
this in the world of matter and in the worid
of mind. It is the constant action of the
water that bus given us the great "Mia
"Hra" uud the grand canvons of the Colo
rado, so in the world of miud if we turn
our uttentiou to the discoveries that have
taken place iu the history of our globe do
we find them the results of perseverance.
We have all heard of the patient Kepler
who hunted down theory after theory, aim
ing to discover the shape of tin; orbits of
tho planets, until after years ol labor his ef
forts were rewarded by the discovery of the
urand laws which control their movements
It is through the patient efforts of its dev
otees that chemistry has been raised from it
science of superstition to the really great
i and noble science which it is. It has
failed indeed to reveal the'philosopher
stone and the elixir of life, but it does re
veal the composition of those far distant
heavenly bodies, as well as the minutest
atoms on our own enrth. It seems a fact that
nature reveals her secrets only to the persist
ent enquirer, and the names of Copernicus
Kepler and our own Morse and Edison,
will live through all ages, for the world de
lights to honor its workers. But of what
advantage are hope and perseverance to us
without the aid of true and moral courage?
For what can a coward hope? How
would Columbus have fared had he not
proven courageous, threatened on all sides
by enraged nnd hopeless men. He calmly
and resolutely quieted their fears. How his
courage nnd perseverance were rewarded Is
doubtless known to every Ameri
can. America was discovered and
the fame of Columbus fixed as
the greatest explorer and navigator of the
The future has wisely been concealed
from us, but we may know something of
the temptations that lie before us, by
studying the lives of others. The forms of
Rome's most noblest heroes and vi!cst
tyrants pass before our eyes; we see the
wealthy Crccsus, the cruel Morius, the
noble Trachi, the ambitious Ciesar, and the
weak Antony. We truce their lives and
find that some were cruel, stern and picked
tyrants, while others were noble, just and
great patriots. We see how they hav
failed and where and how they sucreded.
We arm ourselves against their failures,
aud prepare to imitate their virtues. Not
pretending to know the future, we may
certainly have a knowledge of some things
that may happen. Let us glanco at the
life of Daniel Webster aud what do we find
him, the greatest orator of the time and
iut only do we find him the skillful orator,
but also find that know ledge had a firra
place in him. We see him the ever patient
country lad toiling and toiling for knowl
edge. We sec his insatiable thirst for
education. Ami what did education do
for Webster i It did so much, that al
though dead in body, Webster "ktill lives"
in the hearts of his people. Here is a
striking example of persevcrenre and a de
sire for education combined. Why do we
cot find this spirit in everyone? Why do
we not take the chances that lie before us?
Why do we not, "free and independent
people," care more fr our education 1
These public Bchools that are thrown
open to us all, are uot exiting for nothing,
and as we grow older we will discover that
in them we are to find that which in time
to come w ill constitute, our best, our only
and our all education. Take for instance
soiae of the lea ling men of our country
among ix!iticians and pick out such nieu
as "Tliurman, Garfield, Iktyard or Conkliog
and do we find them without education?
Do we find in them the school boys that
let their chances like sunbeams
pass them by? It may be well
said here that that undoubtedly they did
not enjoy the schooling we do. But thoe
hard benches, that school house without
the window, in fact all the difficulties
they suffered during their school days will
but serve to accord them m;re honor, and
are we therefore to fail, enjoying such ex
cellent opportunities as we do. Are we
not to tick up the banner of education and
plant it safely beyond the power of any
thing to bear it down. Genius may,
and in some cases does, carry man to
distinction, to fame, even to glory; but
with few exceptions it is education thai
carries him there. And while we see men
rallying and battling bravely ou, are we.
therefore to hide until the battle is over
and then try to go forward. There are
some who undervalue education, they insist
that manual labor is at thu bottom of all
success. True manual labor is necessary,
but it is well directed efforts that accom
plish the most, aud well directed
effortscan only bo obtained through a well
liscipliued mind and a well disciplined
mind only through the full development f
all its faculties through education. Let us
then live like men, in tho full possession of
our faculties uud let us embrace the oppor
tunities of living for something more than
the mere gratification of our physical na
tures. Oh ! how glorious is it to live for
something nnd to defy living for nothing?
The inspirations the doings of mankind
tell me to live, and why not
live like a man? Education
elevates the intellect and expands the spir
itual natures, but it is not all, iu the words
of another, "churacter Is tho crown and
glory of life.'' lie wh possesses it is
strong to do good," strong to resist all evil,
strong to bear up under all difficulties and
misfortunes. Character and education are
strong powers which will help us success
fully over life's ocean. The words, "Dost
thou believe in mo, give mo thine heart, per
form thy vow," and "thou shalt rescuod be,"
comes to us over the waves and Is our surest
guide. The words fall liko music on our
cars, they fill our hearts with courage, we
renew our efforts, until at Inst we drift
homeward into the haven whore friends are
waiting and heaven smiles In mercy upon
