southern Illinois helped make up the loss
sustained by farmers through short wheat
crops. The Murphysboro Era says the

Alarmed at the defeat of Randall, the

the Democratic party, which stumbled on a
principal lying in the highway to success,
will be so badly frightened at it that it will
leave it where it found it. Whether it does
or not, the message has been written on the

The modern edition of "Jarndice vs.

Schuler and Lutz, equally familiar in the
courts of southern Illinois, continues to drag
it weary length along inthecourt of Judge
Baker. There are several other Mound
City cases on the docket, which, in all, will
occupy the time of the court for several
weeks, to the neglect of Alexander county
cases of equal importance. But the worst
of it is that Alexander county has to bear
all tbe expenses of the trials and could not
be reimbursed. However, we may come
back at Pulaski in like manner some time.

At night another meeting is to be held at

is invited to take a part, and which will be

The party of young folks who went
down to Laketon to flub and hunt, returned
in splendid spirits (not of the intoxicating
kind) Tuesday evening. They had a de
lightful time all day Tuasday, but no fish
or game. Though they fished and bunted
much they talked and laughed more, and as
hunting and fishing are sports that must be
followed reverently and quietly in order to
furnish their reward, they neither brought
anything up from the aquaous depths, uor
down from leafy branches. In this dilemma
(a strictly total-abstinence dilemma, this
without any "horns") they were compelled
to make liberal drafts upon the "commit
sary department," tbe "big valise." Two of
the party were left behind, but they man
aged to cross the river to East Cairo, where
they took a stylish special conveyance and
reached Wickliffe just in time to see the
sun go beautifully down behind a glowing
horrizon, and they faced about and came
Mrs. Skelton addressed the ladies of
Cairo yesterday afternoon in the Methodist
church on "Home Influence." She pre
faced her address by reading tbe 1st Chap
ter of Jeremiah. Mrs. Skelton is a very
easy talker, and holds her audience with
close attention. She is a German lady,
and speaks quite broken, but this makes
her lectures all the more interesting. In
tbe course of her remarks, she made it very
apparent how it was possible for a woman
to be engaged in temperance work or any
other that tends to the uplifting of man,
and yet be a good wife and mother, in fact,
be thought any woman, who could thus
devote her spare moments, was better pre
parod to raise a family, or move in society.
Mrs. Skelton spoke for over an hour and
her remarks were not only interesting but
instructive. In the evening, Mrs. Skelton
lectured to a large and intelligent audi
enco on "License and Prohibition." Tbe
lecturer made some strong points which
were well received. This lady, with others,
will address the citizens of Cairo to-night
and to-morrow night again in the Metho
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS NORMAL.
Tbe following passage occurs in an ad
dress "to tbe citizens of southern Illinois,"
by Prof. Allyn, of the So. 111., Normal
"And let me suggest, that as you have,
within the past few years, been accustomed
to aid those who have suffered by tire, tor
nado, or flood, can you sot assist the peo
ple of Carbondale to erect a temporary
building for the use of tbe recitations, till
tbe State can take intelligent action about
rebuilding? May I not appeal to tbe cities,
the villages, tbe towns of Southern Illinois
for material aid in such a laudable enter
prise? A hundred places contributing a
few dollars say a hundred or two hundred
each would give us before the beginning
of the New Year a houso for all our work,
as good as has been common for the pur
pose of teaching. Without consulting
them, as yet, I am certain that all our
teachers will sacrifice much will pledge
all trey have for this purpose. The peo
ple of Carbondale are already moving. A
few words from other communities, accom
panied with pecuniary support, will estab
lish the Normal school in the hearts of men
as it has never yet been established."
The people of Carbondale have already
done all within their power to aid tbe man
agement in its efforts to procure temporary
quarters for tbe school. At last accounts
they had raised among themselves alone
upwards of $4,000 and tbe board of trustees
had taken step to begin the work of erect
ing a one-story frame building in the form
of a cross, the recitation room in the centre
and school rooms.in each of the four wings
the total number of rooms to be lourteen.
Such a building wasestimated to cost about
$4,000, and for a short time it would serve
the purpose well enough. But, even if a
special session of the legislature is called
for the purpose of appropriating money for
the immediate re-erection of the building,
the school will have to be conducted in
temporary quarters for at least one year,
and if no special session be beld, it will be
over two years before the building can be
replaced. Hence it is desirable that the
temporary quarters shall be as spacious and
as' convenient as may be necessary for tbe
continuance of the school without any seri
ous reduction in attendance, and to this end
other cities in southern Illinois should aid
the people of Carbondale in providing the
necessary conveniences. There are upwards
of four hundred scholars to be provided
for, together with a large staff of teachers ;
and as the institution is one in which tbe
whole people, more especially those of
southern Illinois, are interested, the burden
of maiotaing it through this period of its
trouble should not be permitted to rest
soley upon tbe shoulders and purses of tbe
good people of Carbondale. So lend a
Mr. Fairbrother, of the board of trus
tees, in his petition to the governor for a
special session to appropriate money for
immediately rebuilding the house, argues
that the walls are worth $100,000. If
permitted to stand as they are until tbe
thirty-fourth legislature meets (which will,
with tbe delays incident thereto, delay the
beginning of work for over a year) tbe walls
will lose value at the rate of about $25,
000 per year. Besides this, the school will
lose in popularity and prosperity. He esti
mates the cost of a special session of
the Thirty-third legislature (provided, of
course, it convenes, promptly makes this
appropriation and then as promptly ad
journs) at $25,000, which would be from
ten to fifteen thousand dollars leas than the
loss . in actual cash as above
gven. If these estimates are
correct there can be little or nothing
said against an extra session. But it is a
notorious fact that the Thirty-third Illinois
general assembly was tbe laziest, long-
windedest, good-for-nothingest, dohttle est
legislative body that ever imposed itself
upon the long-suffering people of aDy com
monwealth in the union, and this tact will
cause general doubt in the minds ot the
people that a special session will fall any
thing short of twice the above estimite.
But be this as it may, tbe southern Illinois
Normal school must he maintained at all
hazzards; and if, in order to maintain it,
or even to prevent its being seriously crip
died, a special session is necessary, then
a special session should be called, though
it costs fifty thousand dollars of the peo
ple's good money, and the people would
consider the money nobly spent. But
docs such an emergency exist? Will not
the temporary quarters that will have to
serve the school for over one year, even
though a special session be held will they
not answer the needs of the school as well
for two seasons? In short, is a special ses
sion necessary to save the school from ser
ious harm, and will a special session give
the needed relief? These are questions
about which there hangs some doubt that
ought to be cleared away.

The increasing dissatisfaction in the use of High

plaints arising therefrom, necessitates the calling of special
attention to WARDEN & OXNARD'S GENUINE ELAINE
OIL, which never varies in quality, always gives a good
