Tlie Katie Putnnm troupe at'iieafed
upon tlic btigo at the iitlieneum last nilit,

made a good impression upon the audience.
A good crowd of our people turned out to
sue the performance, which was up to the
usual standard of excellancy. The troupe
appears again to-night, and will present
'Two Ual.es of the Woo'V which
will not fail to call out a crowded house.
We fed called upon to refer once
iiiore to the sutlVring Suet family, who are
yet a much in need of assistance, ns they
ever were, Mr. f?oet is yet down upon the
sick Led, aud is often in need ot the nec
essary lood. Thy subscriptions that have
so far been taken up for the family,
have been exhausted and, although,
the good neighbors are still untiring in
their attentions they can, of course, not
give the sufferers the attention they need,
and it Ls necessary that another efiort be
made by the Indies of Cairo to contribute
to, their nee Is diiring the short time that
Mr. Soet may yet have to bear the tortures
of disease in this life, which, as he himself
says, will not now be much longer.
The following police business was yes
terday transacted in Judge Olmsted's court:
Dennis Hook, for drunkenness, was fined
one dollar and given a stay of execution;
Pat Haywick, for drunkenness, was sent to
jail fur four days; John Keiser, for
drunkenness, was fined one dollar and paid
his fine; Mattie Harden, for being drunk
and disorderly, was fined six dollars and
costs; T. Iiotto, for drunkenness was fined
one dollar and costs which he paid ; James
Phillips, for alike offensef was fined a like
amount and sent to jail for five days; Geo.
James, charged with disorderly conduct,
was acquitted for a lack of evidence;
Martin Kean aaJ Chas. Carpenter, for
druukenness, were each sent to jail for tour
days; P. Carsadim wa3 fined one dollar for
drunkenness, and Loran Worley, for a like
oUense, was granted a stay and he left.
There promises to be the usual lively
battle between the two sides of the liquor
question this winter before the general as
sembly. E. A. McDaniel, of Buffalo Hart,
has been appointed general superintendent
of petitions for the state and has issued a
badly printed blauk to about 500 gctters-of-names
in the state, and says that he expects
to get the largest petition ever presented to
any legislature. The petition reads that
the "undersigned voters of the state ot Illi
nois residents of county, respectfully
and earnestly pray your Honorable Body to
adopt and submit for ratification to the
voters of the state, as duly and legally pro
vided, an amendment to the state const itu-
tion, to fosever prohibit the introduction,
manufacture and sale of intoxicating
liquors, including ale, beer and wine, in
this state, except for medical, scientific and

A JfOCXCIXtt INFANT.
We wish to mako n remark ou the sub
ject of transportation. Many of tho readers
of Tiik Bulletin, have doubtless seen the
following brief dispatch which was recent
ly sent to the press, viz :
"The grain shipped to New
Orleans this year amounts now to
fifteen million bushels against six million
bushels shipped in 1870, over one hundred
per cent, increase."
We need not tell our readers that this
immense amouut of grain, and more too,
was shipped via Cairo, nor that children
as a rule, grow larger after they are born.
This commercial infant is a bouncing one
at its birth. It is healthy also, and its "ex
pectancy," as the life insurance men say, is
a very protracted one. Its development
may, therefore, be safely placed at a great
figure In the near future. Over one hun
dred per cent, increrse in one year ! Tiuly
it is coming, that astounding grain pro
duct of the great interior, and it will never
hereafter alter its channel or cease to
come. Incapacity, poverty or stupidity
may delay the consummation of the revolu
tion nothing can permanently arrest its
progress. The shipments above noted arc
no more than a rivulet compared with the
mighty tido which must inevitably follow.
From six millions to fifteen millions in one
year would be an astounding increase but
for the more astounding fact that this man
ner of shipment has been so long delayed.
That the mighty commerce af the great
interior has, for so many years, preferred to
climb a mountain range rather than float
with the current down the grandest natural
commercial channel In the world must
remain a problem unsolved until
man including the producer, the carrcr and
the consumer shall have thoroughly mas
tered and completely acknowledged the
lawsof transportation. Corn and wheatnevcr
had such an affection for watered railroad
stock as to wish to be consumed in order to
put flesh on skeleton bonds. Yet they
have been consumed for that purpose ulone
during many years past. The railroads
have invariably bought aud sold by their
own weights and measures and at their
own prices. Given such monstrous advan
tages, the trader who does not grow rich
rapidly must be a"scrub" fool. The railroads
have grown rich rapidly notwithstanding
loose and profligate management. They
have grown rich too rapidly. Even cor
porations are not invincible in the pursuit
of wrong. They must every ono be cast in
damages for each transgression every one
must pay the proper fine for each mistake
Railroads will not be overthrown by water
routes, however, perfectly the latter may
be improved. But something infinitely
better will happpn '.he. railroad will be
regulated and restrained within reasonable
bounds by the water routes. Running water
is the benevolent father of transportation
aud his great wisdom and affection im
pel him to rebuke with a smart switch
those of his children who w ilfully trans
gress bis laws. He is quite capable of
switching those lubberly corporations
which think to ignore or defy him. Tho
railroads are with us to stay fortunately.
They will become more and uioro useful
and valuable. But they will gradually
put off the supercilious airs of adolescence
and assume the more becoming manners
of a chastened but healthy and vigorous
maturity. The bouncing infant above
alluded to will contribute not a littfc to
this happy result.

of tho physical structure. To restore it
persons whose bowels are out ot order, or
whose digestion is imperfect, should use
Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters, a corrective of
disordered conditions of the secretive, evac
uativc, and digestive organs without a
peer. The most serious consequences re
sult from a neglect of reformatory meas
ures, where constipation is allowed to gain
headway. For this as tor many other dis
orders usually found in conjunction with
costiveurss, such as dyspepsia, biliousness,
nervous derangement, headaches, vertigo,
morning nausea and tho like, tho Bitters
has long been recognized by the public and
the medical profession as a genuinely ef
ficacious remedy. Its action is never sud
den and griping, like that of a violent
purgative, nor does it like the average
cathartic, tend to deplete the system and
weaken the bowels. On the contrary, it in
vigorates and sooths while it regulates.
