the effect that many years ago he was to

found on arriving thcie that old Dan Rice
was advertised for an afternoon and even
ing performance with his circus. In the
afternoon the great tragedian strolled into
the tent and found it very poorly patron
ized. Old Dan soon appeared and msde a
short speech, as follows; 'Ladies and Gon

Tho Bloomington Bulletin publishes a
largo number of reports from prominent
Democrats all over the State, giving the
local political outlook, among which wo
fiud the following: "Judge William II.

Committee, writes : The outlook was never

About 11:30 o'clock last night ofii-
cers Mahanny and Dunn arrested a white
stranger who whs in the act of departing
on tho stci.mt r Aikmsns City for Mem
phis, and placed him in tho city jail to bo
examined to-day upon the chargo of hav
ing stolen a gold watch chain and a ring
from Mr. E. A. Buder yesterday after
noon. The mn came into tho store and
selected a lurgo lot of jewelry, saying that
he would return to- lay to get it. He al
so went to Mr. Woodward's store, where
ho Bclected a lot of cutlery and loft it,
and then went to several other places
where ho also solected goods, promising to
return to-day to get them. Mr. Buder did
not mils the jewelry till after night
and the officers had some difficulty in find
ing their man; but they caught up with
him just in timo .and found a gold chain
and a ring on his person which Mr. and
Mrs. Buder both concur belongs to them.
The supposition is that the man is one of a
gang of sharpers who havo beeu working
this city for several days, and that ho got
the jewelry while mak'ng tho selections.
He will probably bo examined to-day.
That Tuk Bulletin has prospered du
ring the last several years is, perhaps, pat
eut to all who have watched it even but
casually. Tho fact that it has been able
to make an important addition to its read
ing matter, in the form of daily dispatches,
and to procure a new cylinder press that
will permit it to be increased in size when
ever other circumstances shall permit, may
bo taken as ample proof of this, if is a
fact, also, that after these several additions
had been made, the prosperity continued
and increased also, so that now there is no
longer any doubt that the improvements
were justified and will be permanent. More
than this: The new press was procured, as
stated, in order to permit an increaso in
the sizo of tho paper at some future time,
provided the increaso of patronago on ac
count of tho dispatches should justify it.
Now, while there has been an increase in
the patronage of the paper it has not yet
been large enough to justify the step in
dicated and in order to bring about a suffi
cient increaso the management is willing to
share with , tho public the results of the in
creaso so far made and has determined, to
reduce tho subscription price of the paper
to 20 cents per week, or $1.00 for five
weeks. The Bulletin is worth this if it
is worth anything. Since it furnishes its
readers with six columns of dispatches
ovcry day, it has been the best newspaper
ever published in tho city, and, in propor
tion to tho amount of fresh nows it furn
ishes, it Is tho cheapest paper ever pub
lished in tho city and is the cheapest now.

hope that the paper's patronage may bo so
stimulated thereby, as to enable the pub
lisher to soon realize his original plan of
increasing the sizo of the paper, and the
public may rest assured that this will be
done as soon as the publisher's action in re

We must all drink something, especi
ally in this hot weather. Many people,
however drink more than is good for them.
Total abstinence reformers will be tho last
to deny this, but they accept it with a men
tal reservation, intercalating the words "al
coholic liquors." Tho assertion that many
people drink more than is good for them
needs no such qualification. They drink to
much liquid altogether, apart from the prop
erties of the liquid. The boy who cannot
walk a mile out of doors in the summer
without "wanting a drink." who is never
happy unless his lips are applied to a pump
or a cup of water has learned a habit injur
ious in its present form, and one likely to
become worse as years roll on. The man
who must be always drinking something is
other things being equal, far more likely to
succumb to the alcoholic habit than he who
is able to go three or four hours without
imbibing fluids. Perpetual sipping of one
fluid prepares the way for perpetual sipping
of another. Opinions may differ as to the
propriety of drinking while actually en
gaged iu eating. Some medical men be
lieve that it is far better to eat first aud
drink after; but it is certain that at or closo
to a meal of solid food is a better time to
drink than between meals. If this is tiue
of water, lemonade, soda water, and other
drinks of unstimulating descriptions, it is
still moro true of nerve stimulants such as
coffeo and tea, and other alcoholic stimu
lants, all of which are decidedly injurious,
unless accompanied by solid nutrition. The
injury done by a cup of coffee taken with a
breakfast, or a pint ot beer taken wtih a
hearty lunch of broad and cheese, may be
of great as is claimed for it; but somehow
thoso who have these habits seem to live
long and healthy lives, and never to know
they are hurt. It is quite otherwise with
the perpetual imbiber. The more he drinks
the more ho want". There is a constant cra
ving for something-- cruving which may be
satisfied by water, if that beverage is handy
but which is likely to be fed with some
thing stronger. A reform which substitu
tes twenty cups of tea or even twenty glass
es of water, or an equal quantity of beer is
scarcely to be called a reform, since it
leaves ths drinkiosr lubit untouched.
