ATTENTION, LEGISLATORS !
Wonder if the members of the legislature
from tliis district couldn't be induced by
the hope of reward or fear of punishment,
(the most effective agents or forces, known
among a civilized and enlightened people
to compel action) to use their best efforts in
obtaining a bit of justice during this win
ter's scs-iion of the leginluture, tor the
counties wherein the I. C. R. U. Co. has
These counties do not derive one cent of
revenue for county or school purpose from
lands owned by the R. R. Co., and as the Co.
pays the state 7 per cent, of its gross earn
ings in lieu of taxc3, on the lands, would it
not be an act of simple justice for the
state to pay the counties in which the I. C.
R. U. lands arc situated the amount which
would be levied on them, were they in
dividual property? Why, of course, it
Now, therefore, Messrs. Legislators : We,
the people, your constituents and sovereigns,
do by these presence, coramtJoand entreat
you in the name of the "Dear People" you
love so much (just before the election) to
see to it that justice is accorded us in this
matter; if successful, have the money ap
plied to school purposes, as the school tax
in many districts amounts to as much or
more than both the state and county tax
Let this money be given to sparsely settled
districts, ami apportioned by the county
superintendent to them the same as the
state school funds.
In conclusion, I again urge you. My
Honorable Legislative Friend, to attend to
this matter promptly, and don't you prove
forgetful of your mission.
Yours, in high hope,

PVS. This letter is written with "Fluid
Bootblacking," as you see, it makes a
splendid black writing fluid, freezing
doesn't effect its color at all, and it costs
only about half what other inferior inks
are sold at. I mention this for the sake of
economy, because the legislature will have
to use a great deal of writing fluid in
drawing up bills, and as this, as every other
legislature', is elected with a view of eco
nomizing, I think it the duty of all citi
zens to assisthem with their advice, at

Wasuinctox, Jan. 5. The secretary of
war sent a letter to the house to-day rec

rifles to be used by officers of the army lor
the purpose of comparison. Accompany
ing his' letter arc a number of testimonials
from officers of the army and navy to tiie
excellence of the Remington magazine rifle
The appropriations committee will conside
the recommendation and probably carry it
out at once.
TREATIES WITH GERMANY.
Washington, Jan. 5. Mr. Deustcr of
Wisconsin, who has introduced a resolu
tion abrogating the present treaties with
the German states respecting the rights of
naturalized citizens so that new treaties
which will better secure them may bo con
cluded, is an intimate friend of Baron Kurd
von Lczer, the German minister here. It
is understood his resolution was introduced
after conference between them on the
subject and that the German government
is a3 anxious as ours to abrogate old
treaties, so that no more annoying compli
cations may ante.

are used with advantage to alleviate cough,
sore throat, hoarseness and bronchial affec
tions. For thirty years these Troches have
been in use, with annually increasing favor.
They are not new and untried, but, having

nearly an entire generation, they have at
tained well-merited rank among the few
staple remedies of the age.

Dr. Klino's Great Nerve Restorer is tho

All fits stopped free. Sond to 031 Arch

The Reason Why. Mr. Fellows, in his
"Medical Monthly," gives reason for tho
peculiar action of bis Hypophosphites in
tho euro of diseases, which seem to bo borne
out by facts. From tonic nction of tho
Sympathetic Nerves all the Organic Mus

Mr. J. W. Swan, of Newcastle-on-Tyne,
has come forward a.s tho inventor
of a system of incandescent electric
lighting, which ho claims can bo econ
omically applied to domestic purposes.
He thus states in general terms what ho
hits done: It was found after many
troublesome experiments that when the
vacuum within tho lamp was good, and
tho contact between tho carbon and the
conductor which supported it suflleient,
there was no blackening of tho globe
and no appreciable wasting away of tho
carbons. Tho main principle of the
Swan system is that upon which Mr.
Edison 'has lately been working, and
upon which, many years ago, other
American inventors devoted a good deal
of attention with considerable success.
Mr. Swan arranges his lamps in series,
and feels warranted in asserting that at
least twice as much light is produced
by a certain quantity of gas used to.
generate an clectrio current employed
in his lamps that can be obtained from
this quantity of gas burned in gas-burners
in the usual manner. Putting tho
question of economy in other words, hi)
reckons that forty pounds of coal em
ployed in raising" steam to generate
I'lHctricity, is capable of producing the
efl't'ct in his lamps of one. thousand feet
of gas burned in gas-burners.
In speaking of tho well-known meth
ods of preserving posts and wood which
are partially imbedded in the earth, by
charring and coating with tar, it is said
these methods are only effective when
both are applied. Should the poles be
charred without the subsequent treat
ment with tar, the charcoal formation
on the surface would only aet as an ab
sorber of tho moisture, and, if anything,
only hasten tho decay. By applying
coating of tar without previously char
ring, tho tar would only form a 'casing
about the wood, nor would it penetrate
to tho depths which tho absorbing prop
erties of the charcoal surfaeo would in
sure. Wood that is exposed to tho ac
tion of water or let into tho ground
should first be charred, and then, be
fore it hits entirely cooled, be treated
with tar until the wood is thoroughly
impregnated. The acetic acid and oils
contained in the tar aro evaporated by
the heat, and only the resin left behind",
which penetrates the pores of tho wood
and forms an air-tight and waterproof
envelope. It is important to impreg
nate the poles a little above tho lines of
exposure, for here it is that tho action
of decav affects the wood first, ami
where tlio break always occurs when
removed from the earth or strained in
Prof. Dufotir, of Paris, has arranged
a thermonictric apparatus which shows
the changes of temperature in a very
marked way. The mere approach of
tho hand to the bulb will throw a needle
over the whole of a graduated arc. The
device consists of a bent tube, having a
bulb at one end, coated on tho outside
with lampblack. Tho middlo of this
tube is tilled with mercury, and is sup
ported by arms nicely pivoted. Abovo
the pivot is fixed an index needle, which
moves across a graduated arc, and be
neath the pivot hangs a rod to which is
attached by friction a small weight,
which serves to balance the needle so
as to make it point to zero on the arc.
When the temperature rises, in the
slightest degree, the heat, being readily
absorbed by tho lampblack on the air
bulb, drives the mercury forward ami
displaces the centre of gravity so that
the needle turns at once towards tho
right. When the bulb is exposed to a
decrease of temperature the needle poiuM
toward tho left. So sensitive is this ap
partu.s to changes of temperature, it has
been necessary, to check its sudden
tippling over when exposed to a rather
high heat very quickly, to place two
fixed pins at convenient points beneath
Lewis Rockwell was supported by liU
relatives at Honesdale, Pa., until ho was
100 years old; and then, deeming his
longevity unreasonable, they turned him
over to tho poormaster. He is now 102.
A genial mistake: New Beauty (un

life) "Who's that wonderful old gen

Jonathan H. Greene, once tho most
notorious and successful gambler in
America, and afterward known as an
expoaer of gambler's tricks, is now
aged and poverty-stricken in Philadel
phia. From 1831 to 1812 ho won money
right and left, not only from amateurs,
but heavily from professional player.
On one occasion ho took $36,000 from v
party of card sharpers in three days.
Ho was wonderfully skillod in handling
cards, and invented several of tho swin
dling devices still used by faro dealers.
At length ho renounced his evil ways,
restored a great deal of money to men
he had robbed, and spent the rest of
his fortune in tho advocacy of lawn
against gambling. Tho statutes on tho
subject in Pennsylvania, Maryland and
Ohio were largely passed through hut
exertions. In lectures and books he
described tho means by which ho won, -but
this after a while failed to yield him
a living. His family are now support
ed by charity.
