ORGANIZE! ORGANIZE!
When united, there is no such
word as "fa'l" in the Democratic vo
cabulary. It is only when we have
bickerings and misunderstandings in
our own ranks, that our political op
ponents pick up courage and make a
desperate and Bomet mes successful
fight. It is a scriptural truism that
"a house divided against itself can
not staDd." An army, to be success
ful, must be well organized and agree
toumte as one man in an ettort to
accomplish the object in view the
defeat of the enemy. If they fail to
4o this, and go into battle in a dis-

breasts, they will, nine times
out of ten, fall an easy prey to an
inferior but better disciplined ene
my. No body of mes, no party, can
hope to le successful in the absence
of union and harmony, and a firm
and unyielding determination not to
be conquered. Such being the case,
how important it is that those who

the contract, as well as the action of

The Railroad Company is to grade,
and otherwise prepare the road for
the iron, from Boonville to Hunt ng-

consideration of which the Trus
tees are to furnish to the Company
iron, ol a specified weight and
quality, and at the current price, the
proceeds or one hundred snd fifty
thousand dollars city bonds, rated
at eighty cents to the dollar. This
ron is to remain the property of the
city until it is spiked upon the road
bed previously prepared for it be

seem to have carefully guarded the

"I herewith append a recipe which
has been used to my knowledge
hundreds of cases. It will prevent

pittings are filling. When Jenncr

world of science hurled an avalanche
of fame upon his head; but when
the most scientific school of medicine
in the world that of Paris publish
ed this recipe as a panacea for small
pox, it passed unheeded. It is
unfailing as fate, aud conquers
every instance. It is harmless when
taken by a well person. It will
cure scarlet fever. Here is the
as I have used it, and cured
children of scarlet 'ever; here it
as I have used it to cure the small
pox, when learned physicians
the patient must die, it cured;
of zinc, one grain; fox-glove

spoonful of sugar; mix with
table-spoonsful of water. When
roughly mixed add four ouiicjs

and experience, use this for that
