The Boston Commercial Bulletin gives
an article of pleasant reading matter for
railroad brakeman. It figures that ten brake-

three times that many moro are injured in
various ways while on duty, and expresses
the opinion that there is no vocation so
fraught with , danger to life and limb.
Railroad men say that only about 25 per
cent, of the brakeman of freight trains
die a natural death; also, that the average
life of the brakeman after ho goes on tho
road, is about ten years. And yet there is
always competition for tho vacancies.
"You see me load this musket with
powder and ball," said a Spanish juggler to
an audience at Summit, Plumas county,
California, one night recently. Ho then
put the musket in the hands of Pat Burns,
of Reno, who works on Cunningham's ranch
in that neighborhood. "Now," said the
juggler, extending his arm, "when I count
three, fire at my hand, and I will catch the
bullet." Pat fired at tho word, and with
such quickness and good aim that tho ball
passed through tho Spaniard's wrist. The
performer ran howlia out of tho hall.
This ended the performance. The Spaniard
was cured, but he said: "I no play that
trick any more."
Affairs iu Egypt are if possible more

ment. But that at the samo timo as a
staunch supporter of the true fruit ho was
entitled to praiso and support. There is
evidently a wide difference amongst tho
rulers as to tlio courso to pursue whilst
amongst tho poople at largo
thoro is but ono opinion
and that is that Arabi is a true sou of the
prophot and that ho is tho leader through
whom will como relief from tho oppression
of foreigners who havo crushed the land
since their unhappy advent in Egypt.

ties. Motion of G. W. Hill, of Murphysboro,
prevailed that the thanks of the convention
be extended tbe Democrats of Alexander
county and the people of Cairo for tho
kindness snd hospitality extended to tho
members of the convention.
We have tho pleasure of presenting tho
name of Hon. William K. Murphy as tho
choice of the Democratic convention for
congress from this district. In advocating
his nominetion before tho convention met,
we felt we were but expressing tho senti
ment of tho district, and we are confident
now that he is the first choice of tho ma."
of tho party in whoso ranks he has labood
all his life.
He embodies in himself all rut is bust
in onrejstem of government. Its intention
was to declare the equality of all men poli
tically, aud it is based on the principle that
the farmer's boy, or the son of tho artisan,
has a career before him, limited only by
bis abilities, and expanding to the very ex
tent of holding tho highest position in tho
gift of a free people.
As we have said ho is the best
specimen of such a state and, climbing as
he has from tho furrow to the
forum, from the log school home in tie
woods to" association and equality with
those who rankas intellectual leaders, from
honest poverty to honorably acquired
wealth he stands forth as the man whom
the district can support with the assurance
that wherever ho may bo placed by iho
suffrages of his fellow citizens hawll dis
charge tho duties which that position de
mands of him in a manner creditable to
himself and advantageous to this district
and the county.
