The Daily Bulletin.
Mr. John Keeve is here from Wash
ington, on a leaven of absence granted
him. He will reniuin a month or six weeks
and take an active part in the party's
politics in this county during his stay here.
Hu says though, that he does not think
thero will be much of a fight made
by the anti-Tlmms faction here, because
there appears to be no reason to bopo to
defeut Thomas before the convention. Ha
concedes that Thomas is already asaured of
more delegates than will bo necessary to
nominate him. Two years ago Mr. Reeve
was an euthujiastic anti-Thomas man and
did some tfFuctive work at the county conven
tion against him; but this year well, this
year things are a little changed, you know,
and minds as well cases are subject to
alteration by circumstances. Logan, Orant,
Longstreet, Chalmers and Mosby changed;
so did Burton, then why not Reeve also?
Tho Jackson County Era is a very, very
naughty Republican paper, or else it is very
indiscreet. It asks foolish questions; ques
tions so foolish that none of its Republican
contemporaries to which it addresses them
deign to nrnke any auswer, but very prop
erly ignore them entirely. Such compound
statements and questions as the following,
for instance, taken from last week's Era,
do not merit even passing notice and The
Bulletin apologizes for reproducing them:
"Congressman Thomns has, during the past
few weeks, been bolstering up his support
ers, by telling them that 93 delegates were
instructed for him, when at the same time
he did not have one-half that number.
Does that agree with the Sparta Plaindeal
er's par-tde of his honesty?" "We would
be pleased to have our newspaper friends
to answer the following: 'Dots a member
of Congress fulfill his pledges to his con
stituents by running around the country
attending to his own private business, when
questions of great importance are being
voted upon in Congress!'"
Mr. John Hitz who went with Miss
Clara Htrton and party on the steumer
Mattie Belle, to distribute provisions among
flood suff'.'jers below here, being Inter
viewed at St. Louis a day or two ago,
made the following interesting statement
with regard to the work of the Red Cross
Society south and the condition of the peo
ple there: "As you know," he said, "we
left St. Louis four weeks ogo, loaded chiefly
with forage and taking also medicines and
clothing. Our object was to work in har
mony with the Government relief force and
to supplement their labor, and hence our
care was principally to furnish the stock
with provender to keep them from starva
tion. Our supplies were replenished at
Caiio, Vicksburg, Memphis and Natchez
We went all the way to New Orleans, stop
ping at stations where relief was needed.
This is tht first time that the Red Cross has
floated on the Mississippi in an independent
effort to relieve distres?, although field
agents of the society have been on the
ground before. Miss Barton in making the
trip had in view not only relief, but also
the examination of the country in order to
familiarize herself with the field and the
work down there for more intelligent ef
forts should they be needed in the future."
He said that at least 10,000 animals had
been furnished with provender. The loss
of cattle will be very large, as there is ab
solutely no grazing to be had in the ever-
flowded districts, and the water is flowing
off very slowly. The animals are huddled
on platform?, knolls and on the levees,
which are cropped as clean as a floor of
herbage. Some of theru are td on willow,
brush and bark, and where there are trees
they are cutdown and stripped of leaves
for the animals. The Government Com
mittee has dtwe admirable works in the
distribution of food and there is no actual
starvation imminent among tho people.
Numbers, however, of carcasses of dead
animals may be found in the low districts
and the saving of the cattle and of horses
especially is of immense advantage, because
when the water does ronoff the horses will
be needed for plowing and other farm
work. In addition to lack of food, Mr.
Hitz says the terrible gnat plague'is caus
ing an immense amount of suffering and
death. The gnats attack the animals
weakened from hunger and kill them,
crawling in swarms in their mouths and
nostrils, and stinging them to death. The
only relief h by building smoke fires and
by running gnat oil on the tender parts of
the animal. There is one instance of a
man having no means of protection, being
killed by the gnats. The insect is very
much like our coom gnat, but is much
larger and lies a severe poisonous sting.
The damp cool weather has been favorable
for them, as they cannot stand a hot sun.
In speaking of the charge that the people
aro lazy, he said that the charge caunot be
sustained, because there is nothing that
they can do while the land is under water.
They cannot even fish owing to tbe gnats,
and the fact that it is almost impassible to
catch there. Another expedition is soon to
be fitted up for the Ohio River sufferers,
many ot whom are just now returning to
their homes. Mr. Hitz has been identified
with the American Red Cross Association
since Its inception, and is a voluntary work
er. He leaves for Washington to-night."

"What ft "f'oi ner" In.
Tho "bii.-ir tloiiH'tit" iu tho market
are all those wno think that prices of
securities aro higher than they ought
to be, higher than tlmy can pcnuaticn'
ly remain. In order to take advantage
of tho unwarranted "inflation of val
ues," they borrow stocks and Htdl them
at tho high price prevailing, expect
ing to b( able to buy them in at lower
prices before it becomes necessary to
return tho borrowed securities. hen
tho bears have discovered a weak spot
in tho market that is, a security sell
ing for Hum) than it w worth iu their
opinion they borrow and sell it liber
ally. Their selling has tho samo effect
in putting down thu price as though
the stock wero absolutely their own,
and tho expectation is that other hold
ers, observing a decline in price, will
become alarmed nnd sell also, thus
putting down the price still more and
frightening still other holders. They
intend, of course, to buy enough at tho
lower scale of quotations to deliver
back what they have borrowed, pocket
ing tho difference. It sometime hap
pens that a few persons, discovering
what tho bears aro about, and believ
ing that they (thu bears) aro strong
enough to stand a heavy loss without
breaking, quietly buy up all of a par
ticular stock that exists. In order that
tho price may not bo forced up while
they aro themselves buying, they lend
stock freely to the bears, and thus en
courage the latter to sell. When they
have secured all, or nearly all, of tho
particular stock that exists, they call
in their loans. Tho bears aro then com
pelled to buy, and sinco no stock, or
very little is for sale, tho price can bo
forced up to any liguro at which tho
cornering party chooses to put it. Tho
"shorts'' must comu up and settlo on
such terms as may bo dictated to them.
Tho last resort is to leave tho corner
ing party saddled with tho whole issuo
of stock in question. Whether they make
or lose by the operation will depend
upon whether they can extort from tho
bears more than enough to compensate
them for tho loss they may incur in re
selling the stock to tho general public.
Most commonly tho cornering party,
as well as the cornered, lose money,
which has been gained meanwhile by
tho multitude, who have taken advant
age of the high prices to sell out. For
this reason corners have latterly been
of rare occurrence.
The Grocer AVho Caved.
There was up to a year or two ago,
a man in tho grocery business in one of
the villages of Western Michigan who
was famous for his hatred of drum
mers. Travelers for Chicago, Detroit
and other houses wero ordered out of
his store iu tho roughest manner, and
several were assisted to leave in a stylo
more hurried than graceful. Tho boys,
however, rather enjoyed it, and a sort
of ring was formed among them with
a solemn agreement to keep calling on
the grocer until he gave some ono an
Ou day, eight or ten months ago, aft
agent for a Detroit house entered tho
grocery prepared for tho worst, but
what was his amazement to be received
with a smile of welcome. This was
followed by kind words, and later on
by an order for about SU0 worth of
goods. The agent was so elated that
lie telegraphed the news homo and to
several of his acquaintances, and it
was a week before ho recovered his
equilibrium of spirits.
"And did he continue to buy of your
house ?" nsked one who had listened to
the drummer's story.
'Why not ?"
"Because, within ton days after ho
got our goods he failed and couldn't
pay five cents on tho dollar." Detroit

Physicians told Mr. L. Warner, of Hutch

"Women are a necessary evil," he said,
bringing down his fist hard on the counter
to emphasize tho heartless remark. It was
in the village store at West Milton, Sarato
ga County, and the speaker was tho central
figure of a group of bucholic philosophers.
He was homely, slovenly and Bixty.
"There's where I difier from vou alto

the same place. "Women are mostly what
men make 'em. When husbands aro brutes
wives will fall into submission or make

pecially be good to them when they're
