JOHN H. OBERLY & (DO
WHERE SHALL THE SOUTHERN
ILLINOIS NORMAL SCHOOL BE
If, in selecting a'slto for tho Southern
Illinois Normal School, tho trustees or
commissioner!! desire a central location,
neither Alexander nor Pulaski county
can enter tho list of competitors. And,
looking to the good of the greatest num
ber, a central location should bo selected,
all other things being nearly equal. If
there wore facilities for reaching Houton,
In Franklin county, wo have no doubt
that locality would be selected without
an hour's hesitation, as it Is central as
regards both territory and population.
Regarding tho Ohio and Mississippi
railroad as tho upper boundary of South
ern Illinois, there Is tho same objection
to Contralla that there Is to Culro. In
fact Cairo is the superior point, for while
Contralto, near tho upper boundary
Is readily accessible to such communi
ties only ns border the O. & M. ami the
Illinois Central rallrnud-s, Cairo, on the
southern boundary, Is acceelblo, by
means of the Illinois Central, tho Cairo
A Viucenties, tho Cairo A St. L-iuIh rail
roads, and the Ohio, Wnbash uiid Miss
issippi rivers to four-Ilfths of all the
counties embraced within the prescribed
limits. We do not know, lnJeed, but
,wo might argue ourselves into the notion
that Culro is eminently dlntiuguUhed by
all tho requisites sought after by tho
commissioners. Hut, leaving Cairo and
Contralto, and all other border towns out
of the list of eligible locutions, wo reach
the Inquiry: "Where iho!l the school be
established?'' Our answer is Joueloro
or DuQuoln. iiy adding the tier of
cou title.! lying north of tho O, A M. rail
road (which addition will be contended
for and prob.ibly made DjQ 10I11 be
comes a central location, tin I h nearly
enough so as it is. The citizen of 'that
locution oiler largo donations, tho loca
tion is healthy, the town Is prosperous
and the people enterprising.
JotR-eboro odors the most beautiful,
healthful, romantic location in tho
'tSmle. The hllln, fort-stx, valley uud
ridges, mound anil inmitituliu of old
Union are atoncegraud, jdctureequennd
inviting, and the fresh breezed that
sweep across them from either river bear
tho health and vitror and rim that make
men men aud not dwarfs and lllllputs.
Further than this, If the school is
located at Jouesboro it will always
maintain its identity. It will always b
a "Southern Illinois Normal School,"
governed by Mean and regulations con
geulal to tho people of "Kgyp.l" No
future geographical division or 1m
agulary lines will ever make the Insti
tution here, el-e than what it originators
intotidcd it to be.
Carbontliite has n normal school, a
college that answers well, the demand of
tho people there for educational facili
ties. Tho thought of absorbing or oven
overshadowing tlmt excellent Institution
by tho sUblishtneut of, tho Southern
Normal there should not bu thought of.
It Is performing a great j(ind good mis
sloiiruud should live forever. Wo desire
our institutions of learnlm- multlnlled.
f . u a r
Carbondalo has one creditable alike to
liercltlzeus an Eiiyptat Isrue. Establish
tlio now Normal lit JonnAhnrii Dn Ouoln .
and Egypt will then huyo two schools of
whMi her people may Must, instead of
rttli. Ill U'nulil l tln f.'nn stimuli! ("Tnrhnii
dale be selected and th Jqoutheru Illinois
Colleuu there become uiur.ud into tlio
"Ndrmal; Thls.'we repeat, must not be

"CHICKENS COM IN O HOME fl'O
Tho Detroit 'Post Informs tho public
that tho "iron constitution" of K. M.
Stanton Is, "broken down;" thai he
"needs material aid;" that ho Is.' "poor,
weak, almost, If not quite, dlsticssed by
ills neei's'ltles;" and that It Is hard work
for him "to keep the wolf from tho
door." It is nut our etibtom or nature to
rejoice In the distresses of any man, but
Mr. Stanton himself cannot fall, by his
present misfortunes, to be reminded of a
time,.tii)t very long past, when, with all
thootlenslvoness of his brutal nature, ho
repelled a federal olllcer who had escaped
from Andcrsonvlllo to plead for tho dy-
lug victims there, and declared, as that
olllcer ufllrms: "I'll bo dd If I'm go
lug to exchange able-bodied men (rebels
in our hands) for skeletons (federal sol
diers in rebel hands)."

Tho New "York 'Sun' pays ilarespects
again to Secretary Borie, iu tho follow
ing pointed terms:
Before Mr. 'Borle took his office he
knew, ns well as ho knows now, that ho
could not perform Its functions. Ho
knew, too, that tho only reason, for. ask
ing him to take snch an ofDo was that he
had contributed largely toward niving
General Grant a house. It was his duty
an a gentlemaa to refuse the office for
both theso reasons. But Ills ambition or
hi vanity led him to accept it; and hav
ing held it long enough to make both
tue reason lorhia appointment and his
incompetency perfectly manifest It is
now quite limo he should quit. It has
been disgraceful to him, and deeply in
jurious to the president; aud it affords a
Justification for almost any fraud that
may Do attempted upon tne government.
I ho sooner 11 Is ended tlio belter.
"MAKING HA Y"
The columns of tho Mobile1 'Register'
were "throwu open" to the members of
tho Illinois Press Association. Wo are
sorry to see that some of them regarded
the privilege as utlordlng as a good
ch'anco to ''puff" each other, and em
ployed It In that manner.
The Wasklugtou correspondent of the
New York 'Times' says that is reported
that Senator Sprague is now tho princi
pal, If not the sole, owner of tho 'Nation
al Intelligencer,' having within tho last
few weeks paid a mortgage on that estab
lishment to the amount of $48,000. We
hope he will Improve the paper, and
make money out of It.

to make the straw heavy, aud should the

aunlhllators, about which one J. Waldo
Smith did considerable blowing through
'the columns of the 'Balletln.' Bonfires
were built, and the aunlhllators put to
work; hut they wouldn't "annihilate."
After the machines had done their beat,
bystander got' big watering

Wo thought it ratbeV strange that the
agent of these annihilates failed to

for scientific gentlemen to dotcrmiuo

that would do a city more harm than to
