A Jactass In Office,
In k New Jersey town, a number of
politicians, all of whom were seeking of
fice under the Government, were seated
under a table porch, when an old toper
named J6el D , a person who was
Tery loquacious when corned, hut ex
actly the opposite when Eober, said
that he would tell them a story. They
told him to 'fire away,' whereupon he
spoke s follows:, yy " . l'
A certain kang--I don't recollect
his name had a philosopher upon
whose judg menthe always depended.
Now it happened that one day the king
took it into bis head to go a hunting;
summoning his nobles and making the
necessary preparation, he summoned
the philosopher and at-ked him would
it rain. The philosopher told him it
would not, and they started. While
journeying along they met a country
man mounted on a jackass, he advised
them to return, for said he 'it will cer
tainly rain.' They smiled contemptu
ously upon him, and they passed on.
Before they had gone many miles, how
ever, they had reason to regret not
having taken the rustic's advice, as a
ehower coming up drenched them .to
the skin. When they had returned to
the palace, the king reprimanded the
philosopher severely, 'I met a country
man,' said he 'and he knew a great
deal more than you. lie told me it
would rain, whereas you told me it
would not.- The king then gave him
his walking1 papers, and sent for the
countryman, who Boon made his ap
pearance. Tell me,' said the King, 'how you
knew it would rain.' ' I didn't know,
said the rustic, 'my jackass told me so.
And how, pray, did he tell you ?' asked
the king. 'By pricking up' his ears,
your majesty, and the rustic. The
king sent the countryman away, and
procuring the jackass of him, he placed
him (the jackass) in the office the phil
osopher filled, 'said here,' observed Joel
looking very wise, is where the king
made a great mistake.' ' How bo ?' in
quired the auditors. 4 W hy, ever since
that time,' said Joel, with a grin on his
. phiz, 'every jackass wants office.' -
Here's a good thought from the ML
Sterling Sentinel for the benefit of
country editors :
The publisher who credits subscrip
tion, transient advertising and job work
knowing that he is compelled to pay
cash for his material, has no right to
complain that his business docs not
ay, and ot all men has less cause to
e astonished at the necessity that
compels the suspension of his paper.
Another thing to avoid: Gratuitous
work -for party candidates. They
have no right to expect it Office is
inseparably connected with salary.
And the salary is what nine out of ten
candidates are after. The candidate
has as much riht to expect his tailor
to keep him in c lothing without charge
as to expect his publisher to devote
his paier to his glorification lefore
the people without pay therefor.
Make the politicians pay the same as
other advertisers ; and never allow a
line of "puff" to appear in your paper
without pay. Your merchant or gro
cer don't expect to supply your family
from their stores without pay, and they
have no right to expect you to adver
tise for them without remuneration.
Selling goods or groceries is their
mode of making a living. Publishing
a newspaper is your mode of making a
living. They cannot give their goods
away without loss, and you cannot
give away space in your paper without
loss. That which will beggar them
will beggar you.
The Memphis Appeal of a late date
has this in regard to the Granges now
being formed over the country:
Republican and other presses that
do not believe in the farmers' move
ment, and who do not think it will "be
more than a shower," would do well
te study the inscription upon the ban
ners in a procession of five thousand
farmers in Lawrence, Kansas, a few
days since, some of which read thus
"Down with Banks and Up with
"No Quarters to Monopoly !"
"Equal Taxation !"
"God Speed the Plow !"
"United We Stand, Divided We
"Live and Let Live !"
"Money llings Beware 1"
"The Ides of November, '73!"
"Farmers will be Free !"
"No more Parasites !"
"Less Offices, Less Laws, Less Tax
es and More Justice!"
"Industry will be Rewarded!"
"Fanners to the Front Politicians
to the Bear !"
"Peaceably if We Can Forcibly if
"Reform or Revolution !"
"Passes up Salt River Free !"
"Fraternity, Equality and Fair Ex
change!" If this does not mean business, if it
does not mean revolution of political
parties, we confess ourselves at a loss
to interpret plain language.

Railroads and Judges.
There is a terrible outcry because
the farmers of Illinois, who are fight
ing the railroads, made a stand and
elected their candidate, in a judicial
election. Well, the railroads have
been looking after judicial elections
for a long time. A great number
of judges on the bench arc owned by
railroads. Hundreds of others are
ruuning up and down the country on
free passes given them with the purely
business purpose of affecting their de
cisions favorably to railroad interest.
Why should not the farmers own a
few judges? There is not a railroad
man of large intelligence in the country
who does not kuow that the great
comorations have their represent:!
tives in the lowest and highest caucus
es, and as keen an eye on the election
of judjres as on that of member of
Confess : and it is popular knowledge
th.it the Sunreme Court of the United
States was, in the opinion of the c hief
justice himself, packed in at railroad
A Tellins Hit. -
The recent death of Mr. "John C,
Tucker, says the Boston J onrnal, calls
to mind a speech which he made in the
House of Representatives some years
ago a speech that was foil of tingling
wit, and delivered in the happiest man
ner. General Banks had been elected
Governor by a combination between
the Free Soilers and the Know Noth
ings, and it was naturally supposed
that in his inaugural address there
would be some reference to the issues
of the campaign. But the adroit Gov
ernor omitted all mention of the Anti-Slavery
question as well as of the
Native American policy. A member
arose and moved to print 10,000 conies
of the address, when instantly Mr.
Tucker got the floor-and spoke as fol
"I rise Misther Speaker, to second
the motion of the honorable gintle
man to print tin thousand copies of his
Excellency's speech. You may won
der, Misther Speaker, why I, who am
nayther a paersonal nor a poleetical
friend of His Excillency, should do
this. It is well known that His Ex
cillency has risen to power by a coali
tion between the Anti-Slavery and the
Native American parties, or, as they
are sometimes called, Free Soilers and
Know Nothings. And this puts me
in mind of a little story.
"There was a Bishop in Dublin who
engaged a painter to make a large pic
ture for the Cathaydral. The subject
chosen was the crossing of the lied
Say by the Israelites. After a stata
ble time the picture was complayted
and hung in the Cathaydayl, covered
with a broad and heavy curtain. A
great crowd of people assembled to
see the picture unveeled. The priests
entered in procession, the organ sound
ed and the singers sung. All faces
were turned in anxious expectation to
the great curtain. When it was drawn
aside nothing could be 6een but a vast
expanse of water reddish green wa
ther. The Bishop in great rage turn
ed to the painther and said : "I thought
I asked you to paint a picture of the
Israelites crossing the Red Say?"
"Thruefor you, that's jist it," said
"But where are the Israelites? '
asked the indignant Bishop.
"They're gone over" said the pain
ther. "Well, but where are the pursuing
"They're gone under" said the pain
ther. "With similar disappointment the
friends of His Excillency stand now.
If they ask "What has become of the
naygerl"' the answer is "He's gone
over, Misther Spa-ker." If they ask
then, "What has become of the Know
Nothing?" "Why they've gonetm
der, Misther Spa-ker."
The roars of laughter from all sides
of the house made the rest of the
What WiU He Become!
The question is often asked by pa
rents in regard to their sons, and by
the friends of many young men ; and
although there is no definite rule for
ascertaining, we may get some idea of
what a young man will become by ob
serving his actions and works. ,
Solomon said many centuries ago,
that "even a child may be known by
his work, whether it be good or evil. '
Therefore when you see a boy slow to
go to school, indifferent about learning,
and glad of every opportunity to neg
lect his lessons, you may take it for
granted that he will be a blockhead.
When you see a boy anxious to spend
money, and spends every cent as soon
as he gets it, you may know that he
will be a spendthrift.
When you sec a boy hoarding up his
jennies, and unwilling to part with
them for auy good purpose, you may
set it down that he will be a miser.
When you see a boy willing to taste
strong drink, you may rightfully sup
pose that he will become a drunkard.
Wheu a boy is disrespectful to his
parents, disobedient to his teacher, and
unkind to his playmates, it is a sign
that he will uevcr be of much account.
When you see a boy looking out for
himself and unwilling to snare the
good things with others, it is a sign
that he will grow up a selfish man.
Whenever you see a young man
spend his money for jewelry, cigars,
liquors, etc., instead of investing it in
real estate, you may know that he is a
blockhead already.- "There is more
hope of a fool than of him."
In his report made before the late
Swine-breeders' National Convention
Mr. A. B. Allen said of the Berkshire :
A 8 the Berkshire were brought to
their present state of perfection at an
earlier date than any of our present
improved breeds of Bwine, their good
qualities have become prepotent. This
makes them superior to all others for
crossing on the common swine of the
country, and places them highest in
value for this purpose. It is to be
hoped, therefore, that greater atten
tion will be paid hereafter by our far
mers to securing Berkshire boars for
their use ; and that this increased de
maud for them will stimulate the
breeders of the pure stock to invaria
bly select their best for propagation;
thus keepiuff them up to the highest
state of perfection possible to attain.
The Berkshire improves most other
breeds by being crossed upon them ;
but we know of no other breed that
can improve him he stands unrivaled
Useful Hints. Prof. Wilder of
Cornell University gives the following
short rules for action in cases of acci
dent, which will be found "useful to re
member: s p . ,
' - ' '.
Tor dust in the eyes, avoid rubbing;
dash water in them ; remove cinders,
etc., with the round ; point of a lead
jteneil. ' . - ' - j -
Remove water from the ear by tepid
water ; never put a hard instrument
into the ear. .
If an artery is cut, compress above
the wound ; if a vein is cnt, compress
If choked, get on all fours and cough.
For slight burns, dip in cold water;
if the skiu is destroyed, cover with
Smother a fire with carpcts.cte.; wa
ter will often spread burning oil .and
increase the clanger. -Before passing
through smoke take a long breath,
and then 6toop low; but if car
bolic acid gas is susjiected, walk erect
Suck poisoned wounds, unless your
mouth is sore ; enlarge the wound : or
better, cut out the part without delay;
hold the wounded part as long as can
be borne to a hot coal or end of a ci-
ar- . . . .
In case of poisoning, excite vomit
ing by tickling the throat, or by warm
water and mustard.
For acid poisons, cive alkalies : for
alkaline poisons, give acids, white of
egg is good in most cases ; in a case of
opium poisoning give strong coltee,
and keep moving.
If in water, float on the back, with
the nose and mouth projecting. .
For apoplexy, raise the head and
body; for fainting, lay the person flat
A Ci'Kiora Climate. The climate
of Peru is set forth by a correspond
ent as exceedingly peculiar and strange.
It never rains there, we are told, but
during certain seasons, and when the
atmosphere is filled with clouds a "dew
falls so thick, heavy'and continuous
that it will saturate the heaviest cloth
ing in less than half an hour." The
coming and going of the clouds that
distill this dew is another strange
thing connected with Peru. The
changes are reported so rapid and vio
lent as to startle the stranger.
Rev. D. M. Reeves, a Baptist
clergyman of Albany, New York, has
somewhat disturbed his pastoral rela
tions with his congregation by a recent
sermon, in which he maintained that
close communion is not an essential
principle to the Baptist organization.
A Chicago "paper describes the
streets of that city as pre-eminently
filthy and peculiarly fitted, to invite "any
pestilence which maybe stalking about
the land, seeking some permanent and
desirable abiding place.

Everv vear increases the popu
larity of this valuable LTair Prep
aration, which is due to merit
alone. We can assure our old
patrons that it is kept fiilly up to
its high' standard ; and it is the on
ly reliable and perfected prepara
tion for restoring Gray ob Faded
IIair to its youthful color, making
it soft, lustrous, and silken. The
scalp, by its use, becomes white and
clean. It removes all eruptions and
dandruff, and, by its tonic proper
ties, prevents the hair from foiling
out, as it stimulates and nourishes
the hair-glands. By its use, the
hair grows thicker and stronger.
In baldness, it restores the capillary
glands to their normal vigor, and
will create a new growth, except in
extreme old age. It i the most
economical Haib-Dbkssinq ever
used, as it requires fewer applica
tions, and gives the hair a splendid,
glossy appearance. A. A. Hayes,
MJX, State Assayer of Massachu
setts, says, tt The constituents are
pure, and carefully selected for ex
cellent -quality ; and I consider it
the Best Peepaeatiox for its
Sold IfoUDruggittsmui Dealer ia Mtdidnet.

neither rub nor wash off. Sold by
