That bo many people sink into untimely
graves when we consider how they neglect
their health. 1 hey have a disordered liv

diseased kidneys, but they let it go and
think they will "get over it." It grows
worse, other and more scrums complica

Burchard, by Conkling, by George Wil

This is hard, yet since Judge Kru.n does it

Ak 'l"''T is told of tl- good lie,-
con who lai I ti wn the law nt a town mm t-
ing in w stern Ma-s-ichus-e'ta, held to dis-
cuss the ruuuing of trains on Sunday. The
first deacon objected. "The Lord," he
said, "always blessed this state when the
people remembered the Sabbath day to
keep it holy. And what was the scrip'ure?
'S'X days shalt thou hit or and do ad thou
h 1st to do, and the seventh thou shalt
rest.' " The second deacon arose to say a
word in favor of a liberal construction of
the commandment, in view of the public
ueeds in the matter of Sunday travel. "I
ask the deacon who has just spoken," said
he, "to remember that our Lord on one oc
casion said if an ass fall it to a pit on Sun
d ty it was right to pull him out." "Wal,
I reckon," rejoined the first deacon, "Hint I
know all about that what cur Lord said
about the ass and the pit, but if the same
ass falls into the same pit every Sunday I'd
either kill the ass or fill up the hole."
It requires only a brief revision af the
vote ol the northern republican states to
bIiow how little cause Blaine has for con
gratulation over tho result in what ho
chooses to term the solid north. Four
years ago Garfield's majority in Michigan
wa 53 000; this year it took a week to
learn that Blaine had carried it at all. In
Iowa Gatfield got 78.000; this year the ma
j. rity docs not exceed 18,000, a falling off
70,1100 in one state. Illinois gave 40,0(10
ni'ijoi iiy to G it Meld and 23,0110 to Blaine.
Tho Garfield majority iu Wisconsin was
20,000; Blaino may have a majority of
QtiOO. Indiana gave over 0000 to Garfield
and this year went democratic by about
7y00. Outside of ( olormlo, Maine, Penn
sylvani 1 an 1 California, there has been
nothing but losses in the republican vote
and a elosn estimate will show that Blaine's
majority is lo s thim half that of four years
ago, while the fount will show that Ch Vi'
bind will have received over a quarter of a
million inoie votes in the United S'ales
than was cast for Blaine. "
