Watterson on Leaders.
Henry Watterson, in the
Courier-Journal of Tuesday,
discussing the letter of ex
President G-rover Cleveland,
disclaiming any presidential
"Though a trifle late, it is
true to say that the letter is
sufficiently explicit. His
tardy disclaimer exposes him
to the consequent suspicion
that he and his hackers had
come to see that their scheme
was impracticable; that, in
point of fact, nobody likely
to exercise the smallest
weight or inlluence upon the
next democratic national con
vention was so much as con
sidering the possibility of 1 1 is
heading the ticket.
"Mr. Cleveland having
tried the ice and found it too
thin to sustain his avoirdu
pois, augmented by so many
dead weights, warily takes
himself out of the skating.
"The Brooklyn Eagle
does Judge Parker the infin
ite, almost irrevocable, injury
of naming him as Mr. Cleve
land's legatee. It were
enough to hurt even a strong
er man. Then we shall have
Col. Bryan back from Eu
rope, where every effort of
the republicans is put forth
to distinguish him, for well
the republicans understand
that as they are able to
strengthen him they prepare
a handicap for democracy;
then we shall have Mr. Bry
an back from Europe exploit
ing himself and his ideas and
his theories, not yet satisfied
with having made a good
second to Mr. Cleveland in
wrecking the party, and
alonir with it the hopes of
millions of democrats who
fain would escape the horri
hie corruption, actual and
spiritual, of which the repub
lican party has become the
The result will be with
God. If it is his will that
there shall come a little
breathing time for honest
men, he will contrive, a plan
and name the leader. If
not, his will be done on earth
as it is in heaven. Amen!"

How to Prevent Croup.
It will be good news to the
mothers of small children to learn
that croup can be prevented. The
first 6ign of croup is hoarseness. A
day or two before- the attack the

followed by a peculiarTough cough.

hoarse, or even the rough cough ap
pears, and it will dispel all symp
toms of croup. In this way all
danger and anxiety may be avoided.

of mothers and has never been
known to fail. It is, in fact, the

pended upon and that is pleasant
and safe to take. For sale by Cox
