It has been stated that tho election ex

paign which rosulted in his election as su
perintendent of public instruction, were
only two hundred dollars. When Mr.
Raab was in Springfield the other day Gov.
Cullom asked him if such were the fact.
Mr. Raab replied that there was a slight
mistake, as he only spent $163.85. This
sort of revolution don't cost money.

A young white man, a stranger, took
three or four violent fits in different parts
of tho city yesterday. His last exhibition
was a very public one; he dropped down
near the sidewalk in front of Mr. Wm.
Ludwig's place of business, about four
o'clock In Hio afternoon. A 1 irgej crowd
gathered immediately ; various remedies
were suggested and one was applied: he
was given an internal application of strong
salt water. When the victim rocoverod, ho
flew into a rage and showered curses loud
and deep upon the heal of the good Samari
tan who had jidimni-tered the dose. Offi
cers wero on hand, however, and induced
him to quiet down viy threatening him
with incarceration. Ho was a young fel
low, a cripple, h iving the uso of only ono
leg, the other beiug injured in some way;
and ha moved about with tho assistance of
two pieces of rouh timber as substi
tutes for crutch and cane. He came here
from St. Louis on tho Short Line train
yet-turday morning and was bound for
further south. The officers turned him
over to the care of Dr. Wood, who helped
him along toward his destination.
A pretty girl prosentcd herself tho
other day at aclynic in one of the hospitals
of Vienna (not in Johnson county, Ills.
Somo other Vicuna), aud asked to bo ex
amined, explaining that she had become
deaf in one ear, and none of her friends
cou'd account tor the unexpected affliction.
Prof. Gruber kiudly replied that ho would
s.:e what he could, doaad accordingly begin
to question her as to tho circumstances im
mediately attending tho appearance of her
deal'utss. After much hesitation and with
many blushes, or rather ono prolonged
blush, the girl at last confessed that when
her lover returnod after a long absence he
funk her in hia arms and urcssiug bis
mouth to her ear, conferred upon that or
irti imwt intense, and vigorous kiss, At
that instant she felt a sharp pain a.t 1 had
been deaf ever since. The P-ofessor made
ho examination, nnd found that tho drum
of the ear lu! Actually been ruptured, and
tne.ru is no reason to d mbt that the kiss
did it. It is. of course, needless t say
thtt the young lady was not a Cairo,
