Did you ever watch a man plowing in

Thoee siloonists who keep within tho pur

The Pilot's association held a meeting
at Cincinnati Saturday morning and agreed
on satisfactory terms with the Southern
Tr importation lino of steamers for the

In case of ico or othe r obstacles to naviga

A correspondent of tho Louisville
Times suggests that the cause of many rail
road accidents is to bo found in the treat
ment of trumps found stealing rides. He
says the mails should run cars in which
tramps would be permitted to ride free, in
stead of beating them and arousing their
brutal passions, thus leading them to seek
vengeance by wrecking the next train. The
idea is a novel one, and will hardly be
adopted by the railroads.
Alexander county wants for state's at
torney a man who understands the law bus
iness, one who has a practice which proves
his ability, and who has been tried nnd
fournf worthy. Such a man is Angus
Leek, and he is tho only candidate for this
responsible position of whom all this can
be said, and whom it is possible to elect.
Ho is not depending on any political mech
anism for success. His reliance is on the
verdict of the people, whoso candidate he

will bo escorted by the club to the court
house, where ho will discuss the is-ues of
the day. All members of the other Dem
ocratic clubs in the city are requested to
join with the Second ward in doing honor
to our next congressman. Torches will be
supplied at the heidquarters of the Second
ward club, the Rough and Ready engine
house. Have you thought anything of how you
intend to vote on tho question of a stock
aw? If not, do so. Sec if it is not to the
interest of by the fr tho greater number of
the residents of Alexander county to have
such a law. Mar.y acres of as good corn
land as tho sun ever shines on are now un
cultivated because it does not pay to fence
them annually, and they can not be used
otherwise with stock permitted to run at
large. Every foot of tillable soil in our
county should be utilized, and in no other
way can this be done.
B. 0. Jones, of the Metropolis Journal,
recognizes a difficulty when he sees it.
Knowing that the Republicans have a big
contract this year in their effort to elect
Dick Oglesby, he says in the last issue of
tho Journal: "A respectable number of
our citizens went to Cairo Thursday, to
hear Spread Eagle Carter Harrison spread
himself, as did this tough old bird to an
immense audience at night, after a credit
able torchlight procession of men and boys.
We do not wish to insult Carter by the
term "tough old bird." We ssy "tough
old bird" because ho will be, we think,
rather hard "chawing" for us Republi
cans." The Democratic blow-out or reception
to Carter Harrison at Cairo Thursday, is
said to havo been a very creditable and
demonstrative affiir. Tho pi ice was filled
with people, there being a number from
other parts of Kentucky as well as from
here, and it was an enthusiastic crowd, In
the afternoon Messrs. Tonnshend and
Youngblood addressed a largo gathering io
the opera home, ami at night Cartor Har
rison sp'iko in opon air to seven or c'ght

Prize Zouave Drill.
One of the most important features of
tho performance given by tho celebrated
Callender Colored Minstrels is their famous
"zouavo drill." Tho dancers, who are coe-
tumod in elegant zouavo uniforms, and car
ry tho Ruiningiou arms of tho regulation
weight and siz-', go through 104 intricato
movements without word of command.
They are said to bo the best drilled body of
men traveling to-day. A very fine effect is
created in this act by the uso of calcium
light. Tho same precision of movement Is
apparent whero tho entire company glvo
tins grand street parade. Tho wonderful
drum majors who direct tho procession are
a nine-days' wonder to ti e average small
boy. These splendid performers open at
tho opera house l'rlday, tho 24th lutt. and
promise everything possible in the way of a
first-class minstrel entertainment. Tho
celebrated "Hycr Bisters" are with this

A Remarkable Escape.
Mrs. M iry A. Dailey, of Tunkhannock,
Pa., wis utllxted for six years with Asthma
and Bronchitis, during which time the
best physicians could give no relief. Her
life was despaired of, until in last Octo
ber she procured a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery, when immediate relief was
felt, and by continuing its use for a short
time she was completely cured, gaining in
flesh 50 lbs. in a few months.

M. M. Devcreaux, of Ionia, Mich., wis a
sight to behold. He says: "I had no ac

legs were as big as my body and my body
as big as a barrel. The best doctors gave
me up. Finally I tried Kidney-Wort. In
our or five days a change came, in eight or
ten days I was on feet, and now I am com
pletely cured. It was certainly a miracle."
All druggists keep kidney-Wort which is
put up both in liquid and dry form.
