The figures showing the enormous yearly
sales of Kidney-Wort, demonstrate its value
as a medicine beyond dispute. It is a pure
ly vegetable compound of certain roots,
leaves and berries known to have special
value in Kidney troubles. Combined with
these are remedies acting directly on the
Liver and Bowels. It is because of this
combined action that Kidney-Wort has
proved such an unequalled remedy in all
diseases of these organs.

OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COUNTY"
ENTERED AT TUB CAIRO P08T0FFICK FOR
TRANSMISSION THROUGH TUB MAILS AT
SECOND CUSS KATES.
GENEHAL LOCAL ITEMS
Walter Wright has the new Derat crat
ic pole ready for the ground now, and the
raising will probably occur the latter day
of this week.
The box factory is again interrupted
by a breaking down of the log carriages.
The damage occurred Friday and was
more serious than on former occasions.
The carriage will have to be built nearly
new and the track is also partly torn up
under the water.
The price of bread stuff and other
products, and business generally, will not
take on any real firmness until the minds
of the people become tranquillized. The
first two weeks of September are usually
the dullest of the year. The great panic of
eleven years ago waited for just this thin
spot in the business calendar. Now those
weeks are past and gone. They were
marked by the hottest September weather
easily remembered, and yet teyond the
shaking-out of a few more big thievos there
has been no collapse it is ouly a misguided
willingness of the people to accede to the
demands of the buyer. There is no com
mercial sense in the recent decline of the
prices which are paid to farmers. If the
farmers permit much more of it, they will
deserve little sympathy. In some regions,
as in the Northwest, it is easy to see the
cause of the decline. The mill monopoly
is apparently operating with the object of
getting fifty-cent wheat to make the seven
dollar flour. There are a lot of capitalists
in this country who think they learned how
to operate during the last panic, and who
would joyfully make a bid for this part of
the earth if they could precipitate six
months of panic which they cannot.
Nearly everybody here knows that our
fellow citizen, Mr. J. S. Hawkins, has a
good record as a pedestrian. His walking
feats have been subjects of extensive news
paper comment in years pa.t and have not
been much excelled, if any, by late pro
fessional pedestrians. But those who are
of the opinion that now, at the age of over
three score years, 3Ir. Hawkins is not ca
pable of any extraordinary exertion as a
wa'.kist, will be surprised to learn that
yesterday morning early he walked to
Mound City in several hours without show
ing any evidence of exhaustion. He started
for the early Wabash train about 5 o'clock.
He missed the train and waited a while for
the freight, but being told that he would
have to go to the round house to get on the
freight, he walked up there, waited a while
longer for the train toco out and when he
got on was told that no passengers were
permitted to ride on the freight train, and
then he started for Mound City on foot.
He spent some time m Mouud City attend
ing to the business he had gone there to do,
and returned home, arriving on Eighth
street by about 10 o'clock. The wholo
time consumed was five hour?, from which
an hour and a half might be deducted for
the time consumed in delay, leaving three
and a half hours consumed in walking the
fifteen miles or more to Mound City and
back. Mr. Hawkins says that, according
to the record in the family bible he is sixty-seven
yeais old, but he thinks he it only
"A Euneli of Keys."
The time draws near for the appearance
of this funny piece tor the first time in this
city. The Chicago Daily news has this to
say of the company and price at Kooley's:
A crowded house welcomed the Sparks
company in "A Bunch of Keys" at IIool
ey's last night. The piece has been seen
here so recently that nothing more need be
said of it now than that it is rough and
tumble jolly nonsense from beginning to
end. The people in the cast act as though
they enjoyed getting knocked about like
trunks by a baggage smasher, and the spec
tator's roared over the fun. Mr. Charles
Bowser Bcems to bo patterning after Nat.
Goodwin, in his style of comical work. The
result is a mixture of horse play and genu
ine humor. Miss Lena Merville seems to
have added innumerable bits of eccentric
tricks to her impersonation of the wild Ted
dy, and all the other people in the cast
work with a will to keep the ball of fun
rolling. They succeed, which is the best
that can be said for a "Bunch of Keys."

How California Wine is Made.
We do not know of nny places in the
state where tho few aborigines still to
bo found on the coast ever come near a
wineniaking establishment. Their la
bor is not ot the kind desired. A class
of native Californians are sometimes
employed in winemaking, though not
in larjje numbers. Chinamen are con
sideraoly used, both in gathering
grapes und in making wine, though
they do littlo more than feed tho steru
mers and assist in placing the crushed
grapes in the presses. California wino
is made universally in this stato by a
very simple process, and with very few
exceptions by tho aid of patent ma
chinery. Tho grapes are first passed
through a stemmer, which removosthe
stems and breaks tlio skins. They are
then put into a press and hydraulic
power is applied till the Juice is all out.
To stamp out tho juice as is done in
Italy, Spain, and some parts of Frafice
would be, with all the labor-saving
machinery employed, a slow, expen
sive, and absurd process. Few makers
are so poor that they can not afford a
press. Most owners of vineyards sell
their grapes to the largo wineries
which have tho requisite appliances for
the pressing and fermentation. By
them it is sold directly to tho city mer
chants or to the makers of finer brands
in the city, who blend and export it.
Perhaps there is now and then a small
viueyardist in tho hills who raises a
few hundred pounds, of grapes and
makes a little wine for his own use.
This man may bo a native Californian
or he may be an Italian and his wine
making process may bo very primitive.
It is possiblo he may stamp all the
grape juice from the forco of early
habit, but wino so made is invariably
consumed by the maker. It has no
market value whatever. Sun Francis
There were all the evidences of a coming
storm; the very air vibrated with the odor
of dangerl but when ti e kind father took
from his pocket a bottle of Dr. Bull's Cough
Syrup then came a calm, for the baby had

Monday Evening, Sept. 22, 1884.
The weather to-day has been some
what changeable. This morning we were
blessed with light thunder shower, just
enough falling to lay the dust. The after
noon has been fair and warm until now, 5
