In this week's issue of The Current
(May 10), General James 8. Brisbin, well
known both in army and literary circles,
presents a paper entitled "Tho Campaign
Issue,'' in which he shows that his issue of
the coming Presidential campaign must be
made squarely in favor of Protection upon
one side and Free Trade upon the other.
The article is one of the strongest arguments
in favor of Protection yet brought forward.
It will be answered next week by Buren S.
Wasson, a well-known journalist and one of
the principal Free Trade writers of Iowa.
Judge Bross' boom for Lieutenant
Governor ha been give the first impetus in
Pope County where tho Democrats instruct
ed the dt legites to the State Convention,
for him, with Carter Har
rison for Governor. This will bring
the Judge more prominently be
fore the party and will very likely be fol
lowed by similar instructions in most of
the counties in this end of the State.
Ju Ige Bross' sterling qualties are generally
recognized and his popularity, alwayB
much greater among the people of the
State at large than was supposed, is becom
ing daily more apparent. Let the boom-
let boom until it shall rival that of any of
the biggest guns in the campaign and bo
heard from Cairo to Galena and from Alton
to Danville: There is no better man in the
State than Judge Bross for the second po
sition on the State ticket.
It is not entirely uncalled for to urge
upon our citizens generally the importance
of "trading at home." The tendency to
buy from dealers outside of Cairo is entire
ly to great and dues the community as a
whole considerable damage during a year.
We have in our city as large and fine stocks
of everything as any one may wish to select
from and as a rule prices are low. Gen
erally the only attractive thing about trad
ing witfi outside houses in a small way is
the novelty, and the advantage is nothing
The home merchant is entitled to tho pref
ence because he aids the city he pays tax
es, he contributes to the schools, the church
es, to charity, and to all sorts of enterprises.
His contributions are controlled by his pat
ronage, and it is the duty of the people to
patronize the home men. The outsider
does nothing in aid of your home interest
he does not pay one cent of county or
city taxes, and is not entitled to one cent of
our patronage. Let our home merchants
be encouraged to the very greatest extent.
Do not go to St. Louis with your bill of
wants and your money to pay for them,
and to the Cairo business man with your
subscription papers, your tickets for church
suppers, charity balls and things, and for
your taxes. It is not fair, and no one who
would do all he can for the common good
will be guilty of such unjust discrimination.
The Mayor's recommendation concern
ing St. Mary's Park ought to receive the
setious attention of the City Council and be
acted upon as soon as possible. The con
struction of a pavillion in or near the Park
so that people who go there may find shel
ter from rain or sun and have comfortable
seatp,5i8 of the greatestjmportance if the
place is ever to have any attraction for tho
public on occasions of celebrations given
there. But for the fact that we have no
accommodation ot the kind proposed by
tho Mayor no place where large crowds
of po pie can gather with comparative
comfort and without danger of receiv
ing either a sun stroke or a bath but for
this want atone, we would have had several
great celel ratiocs here that we
were compelled to forego. The
Odd Fellow's anniversary cele
bration would have been held in this
city several times, but for the fact that we
had no means of accommodating a great
throng of men, women and children in
tho open air. The Cairo Odd Fellows have
never felt that they could conscientiously
invite their bretheran to meet hero at a sea
son of the year when the weather is usually
unsteady. This last time tho committee
having in charge the matter of selecting
the placo for the celebration was beseiged i
by letters from all over the district urging
tlm to select Cairo for the celebration,
and tho committee would very probably
have done so had tho Cairo Odd Fellows
been ablo to cive assurances that the ac
commodations would be ample. A cele
bration of this kind in Cairo would be a
grander affiir than any yet hold at any
other point within the jurisdiction of the
association, for Cairo is easier of approach,
and she could invito not only tho lodges of
Southern Illinois but also those of all the
neighboring towes in Missouri and Ken
tucky. But besides this, tho Park would
be much more frequented by our people.
Picnics, dances and celebrations
of every description would be
given by our home people and the
Park would become in reality what it is
now only in name a popular resort. The
pavillion is tho first greatest need. Other
improvements may come after as rapidly
as may be practicable under all the circum
stances. The Republican press of the district is
generally in high glee over the dofeat of
the Tariif Bill, and but few of them can re
frain from expressing the firm belief, that
the Democratic party is irreparably wreck
ed. But these are Republicans vagaries,
fathered by Republican hopes of Democrat
ic defeat next November, and nothing
more. The great body of the Democratic
parly is as firm in the right on the Tariff
question to-day as it was two weeks ago or
fifty years ago, for that matter, and it is as
determined as ever to bring abiut a reduc
tion of war taxes. With defeat comes re
newed courage. Tho Tariff and tax reform
ers will turn from the politicians to the
people, from the bctrayors to the betrayed,
and they will bo heard aud vindicated in
a manner that will not admit of misinter
pretation. If there ever was "good in
things evil" it is to befound in a largcmtio
than usually in the defeat of the Morrison
bill, and a little thought will convinco our
Republican contemporaries that they
haven't quito so much reason to crow as
may be thought at first glance. As the
matter stands now tho issue is fairly made
upon a reduction of the revenue, and the
Democratic party will go before the people
in tho campaign of 1834 with a resolution
in tavor of taxation for public needs only,
a constitutional tariff. As Mr. Morrison
says, our candidates "will be men who are
in full accord with the principle of taxation
for revenue only, and there will bo no
straddling or equivocation. We shall pro
claim a policy and the Republican wing
will not be there to prevent us by a coali
tion with protectionist Democrats. On tho
other hand, had tho bill passed the house,
there would have been a debate of perhaps
several weeks in duration and the outcome
would have been a bill that 'would have
been practically worthless. As it is now
the issue is clearily defined and it will be
taken care of at Chicago and at the polls. A
revolution of the kind contemplated by the
revenue reformers may slumber for a time,
but it never goes backward; it is tho many
against the few. The people against those
in place and power; tho majority will final
ly overcome moneyed monopoly.

noughts' Lincoln Story.
Senator Douglas, who served in tho
Black Hawk war with President Lin
coln, used to toll a good story about
"Old Abo's" military exploits. Ho en
listed in a cavalry company, which
started oil' in lino spirits to engrtgo in
the deadly fray. Arriving at a point
on tho prairie about two hundred miles
from the Indian lines, tho party bivou
ncked for tho night, picketed their
horses, and slept on their arms. Tho
method of picketing their horses was
that in common use fastening a hugo
rope, soma eighty feet in length, to a
stake tirmly planted, and then using
smaller lines of considerable length,
one end attached to tho animal's neck
and the other to the main rope. Dur
ing tho niirht tho sentinel imagined he
saw tho Indians and immediately dis
charged his old fusee. The camp was
aroused in an instant and each sprang;
to his saddle. "Old Abe" shot out in
tho darkness on his charger liko light
ning, until tho ropes "hovo taut,"
when over he went, horse and himself,
headlong. Thinking himself caught
in an Indian ambush, he gntherod up,
mounted, and putting spurs to his
horse took tho opposito shute, but soon
brought up as before, horso and rider
tumbling headlong. "Old Abo" got
up, thinkinrr he was surrounded, and
shouted: "Gentlemen Indians, I sur
render without a word. I have not a
word to oiler. All I want is quarter."

Most persons are familiar with those
troublesome bits of skin which loosen
nt tho root of the linger nails; it is
caused by their adhering to tho nail,
which, growing outward, drags tho
skin along with it, stretching it until
one end gives way. To prevent this,
tho skin should bo loosened from tho
nails once a week, not with a kuifo or
scissors, but with something blunt,
such as the end of an ivory paper cut
ter. This is best dono after soaking
tho lingers in warm water, then push
itisr tlieskiu back gently and slowly.
Tho while specks on the nail aro made
bv scraping the nail with a knife at a
point where it emerges from tho skin.
