The authorities of the Moyamensing
prison, Phi.adelphia, some time ago cut of
the supply of tobacco to the inmates, and
it wis followed by a marked deterioration
in their health. Thereupon the distribu
tion of the weed was resumed, and it is
shown that by its use "the health of the
prisoners whs 50 per cent, better." The
physician, Dr. Wistir, declares that for
many diseases incident to a sedentiry life,
tobacco is a medicine. His judgment will
be confirmed by thousands of victims of
heartburn and dyspepsia, who have en
deavored to emancipate themselves from
the habit of chewing ami smoking.
The United States Board of Medical
Examiners met at the office in the custom
house yesterdsy for the purpose of examining
several applicants for pensious. The board
at a previous meeting elected Dr. C. W.
Dunning president and Dr. Sullivan secre
tary. Only three or four applicants were
examined yesterday and these occupied the
board several hours. Several of those ex
amined expressed themselves as highly
pleased with their examination, saying
that they had undergone a most thorough
examination. The district over which the
board presides extends fifty miles around

During tho month of October just past
be collections in this internal revenue dis
trict as shown by the books in the office of
Collector Pavcy here, were as follows: Col
lections on distilled spirits, $31,443.03;
snuff, tolncco, cigars, etc., $17,751.93; on
fermented liquors, $7,327.51; penalties,
$501.30; total collections, $47,083.82. This
total exceeds thit of the month before by
$11,020.77. The increasi is observable
principally in fines and penalties and in
tobacco, etc., the collections on tho latter
being more than double what they were in
September, showing a healthy increase in
the tobacco business generally in this dis
trict. The distilled liquor tax shows an in
crease of $2,529.83, while the fermented
liquor tax decreased $724.31.
Reports of the recent election in this
county, from the country precincts, weie
nearly all in yesterday. There was no op
position there to Mr. Hailiday for commis
sioner, and the stock law was defeated by
a large mij rity in every precinct. Even
in Clear Creek, in which place the proposi
tion to vote upon the question originated,
and trom which the petition to the board to
submit the question came, and where farm
ers are suffering for the want of fences
around tneir firms even there tho propo
sition was defeated by a large tnj rity.
One would have supposed, that as many of
the farmers in the c unty had their fences
torn down every year by flood, and as tim
ber for new fences is very scarce, there
would have been a large vote in favor of
enforcing the stock law in the country pre
cincts; but not so, Weil, "let her rip."

News is not to be blamed for these funny
ridiculous "breaks." The fact of the mat

that the News, with the energy ami avidity
of despair, grasps at and magnifies every
trifle that may serve to raiso a false hope of
future prosperity in the minds of its dis
guised readers, and it seeks to rob Cairo of
every enterprise that aims at her for a loca
tion. The News pursues this course in
every particular to tho "bitter cud," and
we thinK it is barely possible that it does
this, not so much because ot a desire to in
flato Paducah, as from an insatiable ap
petite for bitters. The News ma'i has pur
sued so many booms of this kind to tho
end, and the end has bo uniformly been
"hitter," that the News man miit by this

trust that when next the News roan retch s

will not be hoggish about it, but bite off a

that largo class of hungry Paducahan who
are, like himself, hankering after "bi'fr

that hangs so heavily ovei them.
An exchange says, "One of the be. ci
ties and charms of an editor's life is his
dead-heading on all occasions. No i tie
who has never tasted of the sweets of the
bliss, can begin to take in its glory ani its
happiness. He does $100 worth of work
for a railroad, gets a "pass" for a year,
rides 25 dollars worth, and then ho is look
ed upon SB a dead-head or a half blown
dead beat. He "puffs" a coucert troupe t. n
dollars worth, and gets one dollar in
"complimentaries," and is thus passed
"tree." If the hall is crowded he is be
grudged the room he occupies, for if com
plimentaries were paying tickets the troupe
would be so much in pocket. He blows
and puffs a church festival to any desired
extent, and does the poster printing at La!f
ra:es, and nrely gets a "thank you" for it.
It gees as a pirt of his duty as an editor.
He does more work gratuitously for the
town and the commtrjity than all the rest
of the population put together, and gets
cursed for it all, while in many instances a
man who donate a few dollars for the
Fourth of July, base ball club, or church,
is gratefully remembered. Oh, it is a
sweet thing to be an editor, he passes
";'rte" you know."
There is loud complaint among com
mission men on the levee, ht the recently
introduced practice of the Waba-h road, in
the matter of storing freights that come in
on that road for them. They complain
that, since the 1st ot this month, if any one
of them receives a car Ion 1 of hay or other
stuff, the car is si Je-trickud awiy up along
the Mississippi levee, neir the buck yard,
and consignees are compelled to have it
hauled from there to their houses or on the
wharf boats at an outrageous cost. Often
the streets out th-re are very muddy;
teams must cross several tracks in'order to
reach the cars, and are frequently much de
layed by switching; so that some times it
takes two double teams a wnole dav to un
load a single car. Formerly the freight in
tended tor Cairo merchants was stored on
side tracks on lower Commercial avenue.
but now these side tracks are occupied with
cars loaded with through freight and the
local freight is shoved out of the way. This
is, of course, a bad condition of things, but
the railroad company will probably silence
all this complaiut by saying that all avail
able track room everywhere in and about
the city is crowded with through and way
freight, so that it is impossible for the
company to accommodite our merchants in
the matter complained of, as they would
like to do.
The New York Sun says the astrono
mers who have been watching the approach
ing comet have concluded that it will be in
perihelion on January 25, when it will be
about two-thirds as far from the earth as
the sun is. According to their calculations,
it will not be visible to the naked eye for
six or eii;ht weeks yet, but it has already
had one sudden and unexpected outburet,
increasing about fifteen times in brilliancy
in two or three days, and nobody can tell
what it may do in the spectacular line. It
is pretty certain now that it will, at least,
be a much more brilliant object than it
wa in 1812. Although it will not piesent
as distinguished an appearance as the great
comet in 1882, it will probably be seen by
m'ire persons, because it will be visible iu
the evening sky, while the dazzler of last
year was a morning comet. Since its great
outburst and increase in size last month, it
has behaved like an ordinary comet, and
ha- n iw a very modest tail and an uncertain
aiirt of head that seems to be enveloped iu
mint. N ibidy has yet discovered what
happened to it when it blazed up so sud
denly. The assertion that it had a colli
s.on with an ateriod, or some other celes
tial body, furiii.-dies an explanation of the
appearance presented, but no indications of
such an accident have been detected in the
subsequent motions of the comet. It will
be at nearly its greatest brightness during
the holidays, and will furniwh a singular
Christmas and New Year's spectacle. It is
not often that the sun has such a New
Year's caller from the depths of space.
Special ('orrrpon4i.ur to The Bulletin :
Pocatell, Idaho, Ter'y, Nov. 4'h, 1883.
After leaving Fort Fred Steele, Wyoming,
from whence our last letter was posted, wc
passed through aoinn rough country. Raw
lins, a town of bohio fifteen hundred inhab
itants, is the point from whence the White
Biver Agency country is supplied. It was
just south of this where a few years a-'o.
Colonel Thornburg, with a portion of his
command, was massacred by the ludianp,
while goirg to relieve Father Meeker, (tho
Indian agent) at White River, who, with a
number of others at the agency, was most
cruelly butchered by the "red skins" beforo
relief could reach them. Table Rock is the
highest point of the mountain range; after
passing that station we began to descend
toward the lower slope ot the regions drain
ed by Green river which stream we reached
in time for a Into breakfast. The R. R.
company havo some shops here; it also is a
place where extensivo coal miuing iB going
on. Thirty miles further west and 183
miles from Fort Steele, at Granger, is the
point where the Oregon short line diverges
in a northerly direction for the gold regions
of Wood river and other points in Idaho;
the road is a new one, yet it is in complete
runuing order and does considerable busi
ness. Nearly 100 miles north the road
crosses the Wyoming line into Idaho. Be
fore leaving this large territory we will
make a few notes relative to the resources
of Wyoming. 1 he territory lies in the very
heart of the Rocky Mouutain region and
has an area pf nearly 100,000 square miles,
one-fourth of which is underlaid with im
mense deposits of coal, the grazing grounds
occupy over one half the territory and about
30,000 square miles are heavily timbered.
It is claimed that, 13,000.000 acres of the
(and may be brought under cultivation. So
far but little farming is done, but where the
enterprising husbandman has made experi
ments in tilling thes il the results hive been
most satisfactory. Eleven largo streams of
water have their sources in the territory,
viz: the Yellowstone, North Platte, Big
Home, Green, Bear, Snake, Tongue, Lara
mie, Cheyenne, Powd r and Sweet Water.
Those streams are the head tributaries of
the Missouri, Columbia and Colorado rivers.
Gold abounds in both the placer beds
and quartz ledges. Iniment-e beds of
iron ore are known to exist, the most fa
mous at present being near Rawlins, w here
also a superior ruet ihc paint is manufac
tured from the earthen deposits. Over 100
acres of beds of cryitalized sulphate of
soda, many feet in thicknees, exist near
Larimie city. Oil bearing shale and crude
petroleum exists in different localities. The
lumber businc.-s is just beginning to re
ceive attention in the territory. Mineral
springs, hot spring', beautiful lakes and
mountain parks aid to the many attrac
tions peculiar to Wyoming. This vast re
gion, at the present day so little known,
will in due time become a mighty com
monwealth to pay tribute to the industry
and genius of a legion of inhabitants yet
to come to her broad fields.
Just after crossing into the territory of
Idaho, the roal runs into the Bear river
valley, which, by the way, is a beautiful
section of country, Considerable farming
is done, but the principal industry seems
to bu stock raising and putting up hay to
supply the ready market found for it. The
soil is of a biack loam similar to that found
in Iowa and Illinois. Parsing through
Bear river valley proper, we enter a yet
larger and more txtcnsiveiy improved val
ley, called the Bear Kke valley. Wheat,
oats, barley, vtgetablcs and small fruits are
extensively raised. As we contiuue on
northward we leave the valley and enter
the mountains through a narrow canon.
Emerging again trom the mountains we
come to the Soda Spring3, a place of con
siderable note as a resort lor invalids and
pleasure seekers. Extensive improvements
are going on there. The sur
rounding country is an upland mesa,
covered with sage brush that
in places grows six feet in height and
with trunks as much "as six inches in di
ameter, veritable tree". Some miles north
is Pocatello, our present stopping place. It
