In a letter to Rev. C. Clark, Jr., of
Portland, Maine, under date of July 8th,
Neal Dow, the Prohibitionist enthusiast,
writes this concerning Blaitie: In answer
to your inquiry I say; I have had many
letters from different parts of tho country
making inquiries about Mr. Blaine. My
reply has been that lie has always been a
friond of the Maino law and has many
times rendered important service to it. He
is in favor of the proposed constitutional
amendment and will vote for it. He is also
a teetotaler and has been so several years.
We, tho temperance men of Maiue, are
firm in tho conviction that our object, the
prohibition and suppression of tho liquor
traffic, can never bo attained except by in
dependent political action. The sooner
that policy is resorted to aud vigorously
pursued tho sooner wo shall win.
This, from the St. Louis Evening Chron
icle of Saturday, notes a little affair that oc
curod, not noar Cairo, but in Paduca, Ky. :
"Some boys living near Cairo, 111., yesterday
visited a farm and collecting all tho ducks,
pigs, gecso, dogs, chickens, and cats they
could find arouud tho placo, tied their legs
and threw them into a well. They then
stripped the houso of bed-clothing, table
ware, linen, etc., and piled them on top of
the animals and fowls, topping tho whole
with a large wheelbarrow. No causo is as
signeb except a puro desiro to do mischief
a lovo of cruelty. The frequency with
which cases of wanton brutality are occur
ring of late attract much attention. Wheth
er tho morals of tho country aro sinking in
to depravity, or whether some planetary in
fluence is acting upon the minds of tho hu
man race, are questions; but that the intel
lectual man lias disappeared in many com
munities and given place to the animal man
tho brutal man and the bestial man, is evi
dent from the crimes which are daily repor
ted in newspapers, not only in this country
but in Europe."
Tho question arose yesterday afternoon
between several businessmen on Commer
cial avcnuc,who take au active interest in
the political situation, as to what constitut
ed tho "solid south," so called. This term is
not applied to what we knew originally as
tho "Southern states," nor to those states
which seceded from tho union as soma sup
pose, but is applied to a brace of states num
bering sixteen, which havo for a Beries of
years been undoubtedl Democratic. In
the next electoral college theso states will
be represented by 153 electoral votes, as
follows : Alabama, 10 ; Arkansas, 7 ; Dela
ware 3 ; Florida, 4 ; Georgia, 12; Ken
tucky, 13; Louisiana, 8; Maryland, 8; Miss
issippi, 9; Missouri, 10; South Carolina, 0;
North Carolina, 11; Tennessee, 12; Texas,
13; Virginia, 12; West Virginia, 0. In the
several "slates" prepared by ovor-sanguine
Republican papers, West ' Virginia and
North Carolina havo been classed as
"doubtful" states; but the former gave Til-
den a majority of 13,757 and Hancock 11,
148, and the latter gavo Tilden a majority
of 17,010 and Hancock 8,328. Florida,
which may, with more reason, be regarded
as a doubtful state, was made to give His
Fraudulency R. B. Hayes a majority of 010,
but she gavo Hancock an honest majority
Outward applications of so-called reme
dies must prove worthless with diseases of
the blood, and it ss now universally admit
ted that neuralgia and rheumatism are dis
eases of this character. Athlophoros strikes
at the root of rheumatic and neuralgic
troubles by correcting an unhealthy condi
tion of the blood. Rev. Charles . Harris,
pastor of St. Josbs St M. E. Church, New
Haven, Conn., testifies to the valuable qual
ity of this medicine. He was cured 'of a
severe case of acuto rheumatism by one
I bottle of the new and powerful specific.

Thomas Pennant, in his "Toum in

named Margaret Evan, who lived at

vears of rtnfo. Sho was the greatest
hunter, shooter and tishnr of her time.
She kept nt least a dozen dogs, killod
more foxes in a year than all tho confed
erate hunts do in ten; rowed stoutly
and was queen of tho lake; tiddled ex
cellently nnd knew all of our old mu
sic; did not neglect the mechanical
nrti, for she was a very good joiner,
and nt tho ago of 70 was tho best wres
tler in tho country, and fowyoungmen
dared to try a fall with her. " Margaret
was also blacksmith, shoemaker, boat
builder and maker of harps. Sho shod
her own horse, mado her own shoes,
and built her own boats whilo jindor

tho lakes. All tho neighboring bards
celebrated her exploits. Sho had many
admirers, but gave her hand to tho
