A corrcspoiiiltiit iu tho Ccntralia Dem
ocrat, signing liimatilf H. A. Uicliards,
writes very intttn.'stingly of ttio aims ami
work of tho Illinois Social 8ciouco Associa
tion. Wo rogrut that wo liavo room for
only a hliort extract, which setu iorth what
tlio association docs and does not aim to ac
complish: "Many persons quito mistake
ita aims and scope, and complain that
its work is not practical, that it should
deal with social tjuestions from the con
crete instead ot the thooictical side. They
arc disappointed that it docs not establish
industrial schools and old ladies' home,
feed tho hungry and clntli the naked. It
in very true that all this is social Rcicncc
work under its practical aspect; it is also
title that this practical work to he success
ful demands special and compact organiza
tion, a perfect adaptation of means to an
end ttnd persistent concentration of effort.
A Social Science Association cannot so
limit and specialize its work; it must be
frcjto consider any and all questions touch
ing the welfare of society. In thu nature
of things its work must bo to a large extent
educational and theoretical in character.
But tho tendency ol all special
work is toward isolation or narrowness,
there is danger of settling into ruts; to
work intelligently, even in special fields, we
need constantly to enlarge the field ot ob
servaiion, to keep the sympathies quick
and warm toward every good work being
done towards every true thought towards
every generous act. Herein lies the true
province of a Social Science Association;
it affords opportunity and incentive for
workers in special fields to come to
gether in conference; to compare expe
riences; to exchange views; to criticise
methods; a new impulse is tliU3 given to
Social Science work, and a progressive)
movement stimulated all along the line.
The Illinois Social Science Association has
classified its work under six departments,
viz: Philanthropy, Education, Art, Sanitary
Science, Domestic Science and Political
Economy. Each of these departments is
placed in charge of a standing committee,
Since the annual meeting in October last.
there have been held in Chicago five de
A day or two ago a countryman, trom
up in this county, came to town and in
formed Coroner Fitzgerald that he was
wanted in the country, about twelve miles
up the Cache river, where the body of a
dead negro was lying close by a tree. The
coroner didn't care much about going be
cause it was raining and the roads were
had, but yet, desiring to perform his duty,
he secured a horse and buggy and started
in search ot the dead man. He found the
object of his search at the place designated.
It was the body of a large negro man ; his
head was resting upon . his arm close
to the trunk ot a tree, and his
feet were poiuting toward Cache river.
He seemed to have died while asleep.
After the coroner had satisfied himself that
the man was dead, he summoned a jury of
six, to sit upon him; the jury was composed
of five colored men and one white man.
They sat around the body with long faces
for a few minutes, not knowing how to
proceed. No external signs of violenco
could be discovered upon the dead man
before them, hence the coroner d cided
that his vitals must be examined. But
there was no surgeon within miles around,
which was a dilemma. The coroner was
equal to tho emergency, however; he had n
pocket knife and one of the jurors had tho
blade ot an old saw. With these imple
ments the coroner proceeded to work as ho
had seen others do, many times before,
rihI in a few minutes he had
succeeded in reaching the stomach
of the corpse. He examined it critically
and discoursed learnedly to the jury, ex
plaining to them that there were not the
slightest internal signs that might be con
sidered as causes of deceased's death, and
then, in a dexterous manner that surprised
the jury, the coroner closed the opening ho
had made in the breast of the body and
sewed up tho skin with a string and needle.
A consultation followed, which resulted in
a verdict of death from want and exposure.
Mr, Fitzgerald, after having served as
coroner, surgeon, witness and instructor,
now saw himself compelled to constitute
himself scribe for the jury. Accordingly
ho wrote the verdict and handed it around
to be signed. Tho live colored jurors made
five X'b and tho white man
made something that can neither
be recognized nor described. Tho
body was then decently buried and
the coroner and the jury parted, each for
his homo, feeling that a very solemn duty
hud been well performed.
"My life," said a grateful lady, "had
been one of intenso sulfering and misery
until cured of a disfiguring scrufulous
humor by the Cutlcura Hemedies." Ask
your Druggists about them if troubled with
uching and scaly humors.

"Bettor bo alone than in bad compa

To pronounce a man happy moroly

The way to produen a smilo on tho

derived from Ihe Greek word rheumn,
a flux is a disorder of the blood, in
which inflammation of the fibrous tis
sues is most remarkable. It is cither
nctite or chronic, but tho two forms are
not easily distinguished, the chronic
often resulting from the acute. Acute
rheumatism shows itself by general
febrilo symptoms, redness, boat, swell
ing and commonly by intense pain in
and around one or more of the larger
joints. It is apt to shift from joint to
joint or to certain internal fibrous
membranes, especially to the pericar
dium. Tho pulso is strong and full,
accompanied with headache, though
rarely with delirium, unless tho heart
bo affected. Tho tonguo is covered
with a creamy, thick fur, and there is
profuse perspiration, with so peculiar
an odor, liko sour milk, that the physi
cian can frequently detect the disease
through the nostrils alone. Tho paiu
of tho joints is aggravated by pressure
or movement; therefore!, tho sufferer ia
obliged, for relief, to lie in one position.
Acttto rheumatism has two varieties, in
one of which imllamniation begins, not
in, but near tho joint, attacking tho
tendons, fasciir, ligaments, sometimes
tho muscles, themselves. This form is
called librous or dilVusod. In tho other
form, tho synovial membrane in the
joint is affected, an excess of fluid being
poured into tho joint, distending the
membrano, and making it bulge out
around tho joint. This is synovial
rheumatism, where redness and swell
ing come earlier, and aro more marked
than in tho othor variety. It is less
severe than the fibrous form, and is oft
en named rheumatic gout, and not un
fitly, because it is a connecting link be
tween gout, and rheumatism. The solo
exciting cause so far as known, is expo
suri to cold, particularly to cold aduod
to moisture. Sudden changes of tom
perature conduce to it, because the
secreting power of tho skin being
chocked by the cold, certain effete
matters which should be thrown off by
perspiration are retained, accumulate
in and poison the blood. This only oc
curs, however, when there Is predispo
sition to tho disease. The danger in
acute rheumatism Is almost entirety
from its going to the heart and causing
pericarditis, as it does oftonerthan any
othor disease. There aro two kinds of
chronic rheumatism. In one there is
considerable local heat and swelling,
without any corresponding constitution
al disturbances. In tho other there ia
coldness and stiffness of the affected
joints. The latter is frequently termed
passive, and occurs as au Independent
ailment. Tho patient liablo to chronic
rheumatism should always wear flannol
next to the skin and sleep betweon
blaukots. Despite numberless forms of
