Dottles Poll of Beauty. Ladies, If
ou would have beauty by tho bottle-full,
all you have to do is to purchase Hagan's
Magnolia Balm. That peerless beaullflcr
of the complexion not only heightens
natural charms, but render, even tho
plainest countonanco exceedingly attrac
tive It recalls to the pallid cheek tho
rosy tinge of health, removes pimples
blotcbos, roughness, sallowness and other
blemishes, and imparts to thu skin a most
dclicato fairness and softness. It smooths
tho furrows caused by time or care, and
L'lves fact', neck and arms tho plump and
engaging appcaranco of youthful beauty.
All this is accomplished by tho most
natural means, viz.: by gently and
aturally stimulating tho circulation in
the capillary blood vessels, Leslies bo
ing tho most effectual old to beauty known
to modetn science. 6-i22dcod&wlw

the mound city ratification.
Owing to tho comparatively unpleasant
weather on Wednesday night, fewer

tond tho ratification meeting than had
been expected. Ilowovor, a vory fair
delegation boarded tho stenmor Tyrone,
and on arriving at Mound City, proceeded
at once to Stokes' hall, whoro the Mound
Cityitcs wcro found in forco. Tho meet
ing was called to order by Col. Lowo. On
motion, Mr. Edwin Shipman was elected
presidont, Captain Hambleton vice-president
and II. P. Poller of tho '.Toitrnah'sec-
rotary. Gen. Junes was then introduced to
tho meeting, but before speaking, n motion
was mado that Hon. H. W. Webb, N. L.
Wickwirc, Esq., Dr. Tabor and other gen
tlemen of Cairo bo requested to tako
eats on the stand, which they did. Gen.
Jones then delivered a lengthy and ap
propriate address, which was heartily ap
plauded. Judgo Welton of Louisiana ful-
owed in a speech of thrco quarters of an
hour. The Judge wns listened to through
out by an lntureslcd and attentlvo au-
dienco who manifested their approval at
tho closo by a round of applause. Col
Lowe' eloquent appeal to tho democrats
was most effective and touched a chord in
every heart. On motion, Hon. II. W.
Webb read Horace Greeley's letter of ac
ceptancuof the Cincinnati nomination, nnd
was frequently interrupted by uhcers which
caused thu hull to ring again. Mr. Webb
was also called on for a speech, but as it
was growing late, tho audience woro forced
to content themselves with a few most
timely and forcible, remarks, after which
tho meeting adjourned. Tho proceedings

Ed. Bulletin. Your editorial com
ments of yesterday upon tho course pur
sued by the Chicago ' Times', struck mu as
being so appropriate and timoly, that I
am tempted to maku a fuw remarks in the
same line. A few days ago, in conversing
witli a prominent news-dealer, not a thous
and miles from this city upon the situation,
I obseived to him, pointing to a tingle
copy of tho Chicago 'TiiuV lying upon
the counter, " I havu duno with that," hu
responded vory emphatically, "So havu
I." The fact is, that liku a bogus bu
juwolcd gambler, bullion llio prico of
treachery sticks out so prominontly in
that journal, that whilst Republicans shun
it, all respectable, honest-minded Demo
crats despiso it. It is becoming a bye-word
or reproach In the land, In Egypt particu

whon it might havo aided In tho progres

and thereby attained an;honorable reputa
tion. A It Is, however, It Judas-llko
