quite large, and the several stands did well.

We yostcrduy had the pleasure of

lice would not be out of place in any col

are copies ot a couple of pictures painted
in Florence, Italy, which are pronouueed
line works of art. It is difficult to tell
which are the original and which the copy,
when they are compared with each other.
Yesterday inornug between the hours
of one and two o'clock a fire was visible in
the direction of Mound City and the gen

ing was afire at that place. Wo learned
yesterday, however, that the tire was at Ul
lin and that the saw mill of Mr, .las.
UUiii, h.nl burned to the ground, together
with a considerable amount of the lumber
piled about tho mill. Tho mill wus an
enormous structure and judging from tho
length tho fire was visible it must have
been entirely destroyed. Wo could not
learn whether or not it was iusured, nor
how the fire originated.
We met Mound City's good, genius,
C'apt. Humbletoii, yesterday while, like an
orphuii, sad and lonely through the streets
he wandered. With a slow and measured
step, hands in his pockets, bowed head and
sorrowful countenance, he moved along the
sidewalk liku one forsaken by
all the world, entirely ob
livious to all surroundings and mut
tering incoherent impri:ations against our
friend Potter, who had permitted a hand
some young lady t j take possession of his
heart iu spite of the, fact that men of his
stamp, who were worthy of all the affections
of a loving and trusting heart, adorned the
world with their presence. As we met him
ho turned away his face to hide tho tears of
anguish that were running down his velvey
cheeks und applied his saturated and drip
ping bandana to his ejes, but the violent
thumping of his heart, which could be
heard for blocks, sufficiently proclaimed
Judge Green lott the city yesterday to
attend the Democratic national convention
which convenes la Cincinnati on the 22nd
inst., and we may be permitted to remark
iu this connection that the Democratic op
portunity has come at last. Two blunders
alone can spoil it an infirm platform and
a woak presidential candidate. The Re
publicans are in a state of riot. They are
Ohio-ridden and without much hope of suc
cess. Never before was there such utter
demoralization in the Republican ranks.
Garfield's nomination was due to the fact
that the uuti-Grantites did not love him
but hated Grant. Their ouly ditmal satis
faction for their wn chagrin lies in Grant's
discomfiture. Authur's nomination is
venom to Hayes, Evarts and Sherman, and
too late a confession of Conkliug's power.
In other words, every leader has a black
eye, a barked nose aud an anxious distrust
of the new Ohio man. Should the Demo
cratic nominee be a man who Is without
corresponding ailments for his negative
virtues and fairly strong in positive
virtues aud abilities, the Democratic vic
tory is already won.
Last Wednesday morning we men?
tioned that Wm. U. Hojgo and J. 1). Hut
ton, both prominent citizens ot Johnson
county, had quarrelled and that Hodge,
while attempting to reach Hutton, wus
shot through the heart by a third jierson.
This was all we could learn at that time,
but the below which we last uijjht found in
the Golconda Herald, gives some additional
facts: "Wm. R. Hodge and J. D. Hutton,
both well to do, respected citizens of John
son county, old acquaintances and neigh
bors, brother Masons as well as brothers in
the Baptist church, became involved in a
bitter personal controversy growing out of
a church trial. Bad blood had existed be
tween them for some time, and while dis
puting on Tuesday morning a young man
named Coopenhaver, a nephew of Hutton,
walked up to where the old men were
standing and shot Hodge through the
heart without a word of warning.
Coopenhaver lied, but was closely followed
by the Sheriff, who lost track of him at
Columbus, seven miles west of here. He is
easily identified, having but one hand, and
will undoubtly be captured. Coopenhaver
had been iu the neighborhood but a short
timetand it is claimed by Hodge's friends
that he had been brought there by his
uncle for the express purpose of commit
ting the murder which he accomplished on
Tuesday morning last.
Alexander county Democrats should
make some effort to gain the member of
the lower house in the Illinois general as
sembly. It has a little better claim to the
place and. we believe, a little better materi
al to fill it with than either Union or Jack
son counties. It is not, as many suppose,
a place the possession of which would be
uuworthy the eft'ort of our men of means
aud mind. It is cquul to if not of
greater importance than the senate,
and requires as able a man to perforin its
duties. We have in our midst several men
who are eminently fitted for the position
who need but make knwn their willing-
ness to accept it.in order to get it. They are J
all gentlemen of superior talents, correct
ideas as to the public needs, honest in every
purpose, with spotless reputations und a
popularity that would insure election
We have in our mind's eye such gentlemen
as Messrs. M. F. and" W. P.. Gilbert,
Jno. M. Lansden, Michael Howley, etc.
We do not know that either of them
would accept the pasition ow
ing to their own business interests, but we
should feel gratified if they could be induc
ed,' to sacrifice these iu the interest of
the public. It is only necessary to make
the effort iu order to gain the prize, since
this senatorial district is largely Democrat

Iu viewing anything or studying any sub
ject the impressions received depend very
much upon our stand-point. Putting our
selves in imagination, where we can survey
the world and its history as one vast whole,
where we can realize the parages of ages
of time, and consider man as are actor dur
ing them all, he seems, indeed, a wonderful
being aud the world a stupendous stage
erected tor his benefit.
But when we pause to realize that these
centuries of time have been made up of
years, and each year in its turn of mouths,
aud weeks, and days, the individual . men
who have lived, aud ucted aud passed
away, seem all the smaller by contract with
the long existence ot the race as a whole.
And if we consider each individual life as
divided up into days, and hours,
and minutes each one of
which can atford opportunity for that uct
onlv which belougs to it. We realize that
the sum of human life' is indeed made up
! of triiles.
If we look to nature we find the same
truth, each drop ot water has its own
seprate duty; one at a time they wear the
hardest rocks, till a way is opened for the
river, which rushes through, to bring ruin
and devastation to the lands and homes be-
Single grains of sand are very small
things, but combined they muke the dan
gerous burs ou which so many nable ships
have gone down. Truly his it been said
''there is nothing on the earth so small that
it may not produce great things." And as
in nature so in a higher sense is it true of
human life, since for us "each breath is
burdened with a bidding and every minute
bus its mission. It is ,ail of
Napoleon that he paid great deal
of attention to small details,
he united the ability to deal with the
smallest matters essential to. success; with
Almost unerring judgment he gave his own
personal attention not only to the marching
of his troops, but also to the minute details
of all matters pertaining to the expenses and
equipments of his army.
This same principal will hold true iu
every branch of life. It is the physician,
who makes it a rule to study carefully every
case which comes to him and

The writers who have gained the great

in gaining knowledge or success in out
ward things that we need to appreciate tho
value of small opportunities and little
helps or hinderunces, but in the greater
work of building up character, nothing is
slight enough to be despised. As n care

realizes his mistake when the next year he

Happy the man who goeth forth, know
ing no trifles, "sowing the good seed beside
all waters." waiting in patience
for its fr'iit?, realizing that the
acorn may U'cume the pride of
the forest and that no action is too small to
influence others for good or for evil. A per
son who has learned wis lorn enough to rec
ognize the true value which should be at
tached to comparatively trivial action, will
not grow impatient in the performance of
them because each will seem a stepping
stone toward success to be obtained by and
by. It has been said "success in most
things depends ujon knowning bow long
it takes to succeed. It is the man who is
faithful in the least things, and nev-r
slights the smallest duty, who is alert and
ready to take advantage of opportunities
when they come. It has been welt said,

Isn't it true that many a one has failed
in life, nt because he did not have chances
but, liecause he was not ready for them,
when they came or failed to see iu them
anything but trine. Many people in this
world ate inclined to consider as trifles the
little courtesh-s of life, and to consider it of
little moment, whether one is rough and
boorish or of gentle refined manners, and
although some claim that real worth is not
to be enhanced by outside polish, yet it is
true that all the world judge one another
by the little acts which are taken as indexes
of thfrue character. In speaking of this
very subject one siys. "No doubt there are
a Uw men who cau look beyond the husk
or shell of fellow being, his amrutarties,
awkwardness, or eccentricity to the
hidden qualities within, who cau
discern the diamond, however,
incrusted, but the majority are neither so
sharp-eyed or so tolerant, and judge a per
son by his appearance and demeanor more
than by his substantial character. It is a
truth that uo one of us should live solely
for our own good and pleasure, but are ow
ing daily and hourly duties to others
around us, and that no one can be so inde
pendent a not to feel tlu need of little
daily kindness, which it is in the power of
f.iends to betow, or so inditl'crcnt as not
to be wounded bv little unkind words or
deeds. Then how coreful we ought to be
since every day is full of opportunities for
doing good or of dangerous chances for
falling into evil and bringing trouble into
other lives, least through thoughtlessness,
we bring ourselves to the place where wc
must make our own the lamentation ot the

"Trust in God and do the right."
Shun all forms of guilty passion,
Friends may look like angels bright,
Heed no custom, chisin or fashion
"Trust in God and do the right."
Some will bate thee, some will love thee,
Somo will Hatter, some will slight;
Cease from man and look above thee,
"Trust In God ami do tho right."
Simple rule and safest guidi'.i, -
Inward peace and shining light
Star upon our path abiding
"Trust In God and do the right."
