Thursday morning and will be finished this
morning. Besides this considerable j ib
work was done, among which was an
order for 40,000 dray tickets from one of our
enterprising business men, C. R. Wood
ward, who expects to do a heavy shipping
business this season. The tax list would
not have been any larger than usual, but
for the so-called mandamus tax.
A council that is not clearly and pos

you tacitly delegate to them the privilege
of surrenerding the city's levee to one of the
most wretchedly managed railroad compa
nies in the country, for considerations that
may be but nominal. We do not say that
such a council will do this, but it mat;
and the question, "who shall control our
levee? "is one of too great importance to
the people of this city, to be carelessly sub
mitted to the arbitration of men whose
views upon it are not known and not in
quired into. Do not, therefore, permit any
side issue to overshadow this question and
cause you to vote tor men next Tuesday
without knowing that they will keep that

We are indebted to Mr. Charles Slack,
of the Vulcan Iron Works of Mr. John T.
Rennie, for the following interesting facts
aboutj the Government craft, "Hydraulic
Grader No. 2," that has been undergoing
rcgairs for the past month at the levee oppo
site the Vulcan Iron Works here. The
Grader was yesterday towed to the Govern
ment fleet in the bend above the city, pre
paratory to being taken to Plum Point to
again resume her duties at that place. The
Government has four of these Graders at
work on the Mississippi river. Two at
Wilson's Point and two at Plum Point.
They are all fitted out with powerful pump
ing machinery. No. 2, the one lately here,
has three large steel boilers, a Dean Dup
lex compound engine pump, large and
narrow, with two 18-inch supply pipes, and
two 12 -inch discharge pipes that deliver the
water under a heavy pressure to the 70 feet
of boom pipe in front, which, together with
the two stages attached, is raised and low
ered as the work requires by a steam hois
ting engine, supplied with heavy tackle
steel wire ropes, etc. To the boom pipe is
attached to the hose through which the
streamsofwater aredirected against the river
bank, grades or washes them down to the
proper Blope to receive the bank mattresses
and rock covering. Last fall Grader No. 2
was sunk by some obstruction in the river
and the machinery aid boiler partially re
moved for the purpose of saving them.
But Capt. Hiram Hill, of this city, at the
direction of Capt. Knight, went to her and
succeeded in raising ber. She was taken to
the Mound City Marine Ways, where, under
the direction of Capt. Ben Temple, the bull
was made sea worthy. Mr. John T. Rennie
contracted for replacing and repairing the
machinery and boilers and for the past
month has had his workmen busily engag
ed in refitting and remodeling, and yester
day completed bis contract to tho satisfac
tion of Capt. Knight and the atisistant en
gineer in charge, Capt. W. K. Gould, under
whose supervision the repairs have been
For The Bulletin:
BY MUS. E. T. KEEVEll.
Many persons are wondering what the
women of tho W. C. T. U. really mean, by
the terra "scientific instruction," which they
notice more frequently than formerly in ar
ticles on the subject of temperance; alao,
what they are aiming to accomplish by it
in the public schools, if their plans are car
ried to a successful issue.
Many teachers claim to be already teach
ing temperance principles; and so they are,
in a very mild way, by causually remarking
now and then to their pupils, that whisky
drinking is morally wrong, and that it de
grades, debases and Impoverishes those wli"
indulge in the habit. '
To teach temperance truths scientitica'ly
includes more than this. It is to give reg
ular lessons on the nature of alcoho', its
effect on the different organs of the hu
man body, and the changes that slowly but
surely take place as the blood becomes
poisoned and carries that poison to every
part of the system.
The state provides for the education of
its children, and in return demands that
they be sent out armed and equipped to
defend the laws of a free people in short,
that they be good citizens.
The greatest obstacle they meet in their
faith, is intemperance. They ere constantly
tempted to indulge in the so-called social
(?) glass; and one of the most important
questions of to-day is: How can they best
be fortified and taught to resist the temp
tation that leads to the moral, mental and
physical ruin which lies in the cup of in
toxication? The ansv-er is: By "scientific
instruction," and the best place where such
instruction can be given, is in the public
There are few teachers who would con
sider themselves prepared to give regular
and systematic lessons on this subject with
out special preparation. The work to be
thorough and permanent, must be done as
well as that in arithmetic and grammar-
step by step from the simple statement
which a child can understand, to the more
difficult ones as the pupils develope a capac
ity for higher grades of mental work.
As long as the matter of having such in
struction in the schools is optional with
school boards, bo long will it be, if at all,
in a half-hearted way by a large number
of teachers, under the Impression that a
change in the administration of school
affairs will perhaps be the signal for a
pause in the teaching already begun.
To secure permanency in this work, to
inspire teachers with a laudable ambition
to excel in this line, the state must make it
obligatory in all schools under its control; a
matter easily accomplished by passing a
law requiring the effects of alcohol and
tobacco upon the human system to be reg
ularly and scientifically taught,
The legislature of Vermont, with a keen
insight into the needs of the future, has
passed such a bill, the principal clause of
"Be it enacted that section 10 of the
school laws of Vermont are amended, add
ing to the list of required studies in the
school, elementary physiology and hygi
ene which shall give prominence to the
effects of alcoholic drinks, stimulants and
narcoticB upon the human system."
New Hampshire and Michigan quickly
followed her worthy example.
Do not ask what is to prevent Illinois
from having a similar law in operation?
Ask those legislators who did not dare to
vote against, yet did not wish it to pa,
bow the bill was manipulated when pre
sented last winter.
A still mare determined eff-.-ct is to be
made, and for the sake of our future citi
zens, let us plead for it; for the sake of
hundreds of mothers who would thus be
spared the agony of beholding promising
sons go reeling htn drunkard's graves, let
us work for it.
If every person as soon ai convinced of
the need and expediency of such a law, set
to work to convince one other, bow rapidly
a little leaven would leaven the whole
lump, and public sentiment would soon de
mand such a law as a right, while legisla
tors, whether personally favorable to it or
not, would not dare vote in opposition to
the known wishes of their constituents.
CHURCH OF THE REDEEMER.
To-day being Easter day the services
will be as follows: 7 a. m. Holy Commun
ion ; 1 1 a. m. Holy Communion ; 7 :30 p. m.
Eveniug Prayer. I trust that the majority
of our communicants may be present and
receive the Blessed Sacrament at the earlier
celebration of the Holy Communion, as
has been the ancient custom of the church,
thus receiving the spiritual food "that
cometh dowu from l eaveu" as the first food
of the day and so consecrating the whole
dav to the Master. The offerings will be for
the Diocesan Fund, and I trust they may
be large, "out of a ready and willing heart."

An Imperial Title.
Once seated in all the joints of the body
chronic rheumatism regards its hold very
much as a king does his title right royal

agent that has no respect for his majesty's
crown or presence, does not fear to march
right in his strongholds, and never fails to
bring him to terms. It is Athlophoros.
