inr predicted the nomination of Hancock.
In ipeaking of Hancock's character and
abilities, lie said :
'Ho was nominated eloquently, and sup

fought and who idolize him lor his honor
able, noble record in that fight, without
stain or flaw in the north or south u re
cognized statesman as well as a soldier,
with friends in almost every state and
enemies in none, his cause now in the lead,
seems more likely to grow than any other
Coming from the source, it does, this is
a remarkably strong endorsement of the
Democratic candidate. It may as well be
said right here that Hancock will sweep
the country like a fearful cyclone.
The Philadelphia grand jury have rec
ommended the re-establishment of the
whipping post in ' that city. The local
prisons are overcrowded with an idle,
shiftless class ot inmates, who persist in
committing minor offenses in order to get
a comfortable lodging and tolerably whole
some food without being obliged to do any
work. Therefore the grand jury would
have them soundly whipped, and
not lodged and fed at public expense.
To adopt this suggestion would seem like
going a littlo backward toward barbarism.
Still there is obo class of offenders at least
to which the enlightened public should at
once vote the whipping-post, and that is
the wife-beating and child-beating savages
of whose devilish cruelty we constantly
hear in saloon-ridden cities and towns.
Last Saturday's Chicago Tribune's reports
case in that city where a drunken man
savagely beat his poor, helpless wife,
and then set two fercious
dogs upon her that bit and tore her in a
terrible manner. The master was fined
36. Most likely the poor woman, if she
recovers, will be able to make good that
fine by washing. Hon. M. C. Quinn, ot
'eoria, recently introduced a bill in the
Uinois legislature providing the whipping
post for all such brutes. It should have
passed by a unanimous vote. And we are
not so sure that the whipping post as a
rule is not a mdic civil thing than it is

Thus appealed to the photographer could
not choose but offer his brand new stove
pipe to his guest, who thumped it vigorous

who stood looking foolish, bareheaded in
the sunshine. And again I marked the
size and luster of the diamond ring.
The singer s voice was a trifle cracked,
but we were not fastidious, the ladies hung
on every word, and when the song ended
the applause was hearty and genuine. 1 he
blonde artist produced a flute which luck

From under the seat of the buckboard he
unrolled a short cloak and threw it in a
Moorish style acrosg his shoulders, lifted
his sombrero, revealing a noble turn
ed head with dashes of gray in the
blue black hair, nd his face resumed its
expression of habitual melancholy. As he
walked off to the shadow ot a great rocK,
the alumnus from Colorado college, who
knows it all, said in a loud whisper, "There
goes Don Pomposo. He lecls like the
Corliss engine at the centennial.'
The old bachelor snot tne neagiing a

Mv thoughts wandered from the cay com
pany and the man who had no respect fur
"the stranger witlua the gates, to tne lone
exile and the varied fortunes at which he
had hinted, and I said aloud, "the Senor
Oreto looks like a man who has a history."
And he has.
I dismiss the picnic in the brilliant pe
riods of tho Pharos of the Occident. The
editor-in-chief, being also an insurance
agent, naturally dea.t in large figures, and
gave free rein to his warm, not to say fiery
imagination: "The picnic oi last wceK
was an event long to be remembered.
The day was beautiful, nature,
enchanting, woman divine., Old
Baldy lifted his rugged front and snowy
crown before us and the river sang its

to the altar a fair widow well known to our
city, and wo learn with extreme pleasure
that he has been prevailed on to cast in his

most desirable of all tho territories."
Some weeks later I sat working a highly
useless lamp mat in my parlor, which in
pleasant Mexican fashion is divided trom
John's office by a curtained doorway.
There passed the barred window a dapper
little man, whipping his boot with a short
riding whip as he went along, whom I rec
ognized as a government agent Irora Los
Indios. I heeded uot the conversation
easily overheard, or rather the monologue
which languished, till a sudden animation
of voice betrayed tho true purpose of the
visitor a he asked, 'Was thero a fellow
hangin' 'round here not long ago, calling
himselt Ureto; a sort of literary and senti

GOOD ROADS AND BAD.
New Orlean Timet.
The bad condition into which tho public
roads in the ceuntry have been allowed to
fall, since the war, has Deen a cause oi
great loss to tho planters of this state. The
same has likewise brought tribulation and
anguish to thoso whoso business engage
ments force them to travel on our country
roads. Good lands are frequently traversed
by bad roads but badness in the roads is
bo no means synonymous with goodness in
the soil. The bad roads discount the best
soil and throw tho poor soil entirely out of
the market. A bad road to-or through the
farmer's premises is only a little less op
pressive than a mortgage. In case a
purchaser is desired the bad roads are an
incumbrance which tho purchaser sees that
he must remove at his own expense. This
is more especially the case should the pur
chasers happen to hail from a locality
whore the farmers enjoy the luxury of
good roads. Such a purchaser will insist
on a discount from the purchase price suf
ficient to put the roads in good condition to
be used with comfort. The owner or ven
dor will pay that discount in one lorin or
another. It has been the case as we happen
to know, and believe no one will dispute,
that excellent citizens, with ample means,
have come to this state with the fixed pur
pose of investing and remaining as farmers
and have gone away again solely because
they saw somo unkempt roads during our
brief wet season when mud i6 a heavy af
fliction. It was nothing to them that even
our unworked roads are better, during a
great portion of the year, than the worked
roads of a less favored climate. The pur
chaser expects all nature's im
provements gratuitously he is only
willing to buy man's improvements. We
have no doubt that a good many excellent
citizens and farmers have been turned
away from this state by an experience ol
the roads in the wet season an experience
which is not overcome by the truthful as
surance that the season of bad road's is far
briefer here than in any locality in the
north or west.
Itching Piles is one ot the most an
noying diseases in tho world, and yet
all can find sure relief by the use of Dr.
Swayne's Ointment. It has been tested
in thousands of instances and invaria
bly makes a 6ure cure. The symptoms
are moisture, like perspiration, intense
itching, increased by scratching, very
distressing, particularly at night, as if
pin-worms were crawling in and about
the rectum; the private parts are some
time affected. Procure this ointment.
Reader, if you are suffering from this
distressing complaint, tetter, itch, scald
head, ringworm, barber's itch, any
crusty, scaly skin eruptions,' use Dr.
Swayne's Ointment and be cured. Sold
by all prominent druggists. (1)

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
120 BROADWAY NEW YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
