Clixtox and Lyons will rote on

America is working up a good ex
port trail e in wives. A Spanish duke
is the last to get one..
The authorities of Hoboken, New
Jersey, through tbe influence of the
local clergy, issued an order last
week to the chief of police to close
the opera house should Col. Ingersoll
attempt to lecture there. The order
was based on a statute which makes
it a crime to scoff at God.
. Postmastek - General Bissell.
tired of tbe perplexities of official
life, has placed his resignation in
the hands of the president, thus ver
ifying rumors that have been in cir
culation to that effect for some time.
W. L. Wilson, the present chairman
of the ways and means committee of
the house, will be the successor.
The California legislature has just
passed the bill to line wearers of hats
in theatres, and a Wisconsin legis
lator is trying to pass a bill to regu
late the size of women's sleeves at
places of amusement. In Illinois the
same issue has received attention.
Latter-day statesmanship, says the
Louisville Courier-Journal, may yet
prove itself equal to the demand for
a law to punish all women who failed
to drown every male child turning
out to be a "statesman.1
The state of South Dakota has fol
lowed the states of New York and
Kansas in opposition to woman suff
rage. It was killed in New York last
year by tbe constitutional conven
tion; it was killed in Kansas by the
popular vote; it has been killed in
South Dakota by the legislature.
Thus, within a few mouths the cause
has reeled under the three heaviest
blows ever given. It is interesting
to listen to their speeches in these
days of discouragement for it all
along the line, from the Empire state
to the Swingecat state.
The republican congressional con
vention at Galra was remarkable not
only for the time expended in com
ing to an agreement as to a candi
date, but for the set of resolutions
evolved, particularly the financial
plank. It criticises Secretary Car
lisle for following the precedent es
tablished by all of his republican
predecessors in redeeming the na
tion's obligations in gold. The com
mittee which framed this resolution
knows, or it at least should know,
that the treasury pays in whatever
money is demanded, which is invar
iably gold. To refuse payment in
such coin would be a simple ac
knowledgement that the yellow
metal was preferable, thus destroy
ing the parity which it seeks to
maintain. In view of the hypocrit
ical attitude of the republicans in
congress, doggedly refusing to give
the administration power to save the
9.000.000, which the resolution says
was practically given away, lends a
tinge of absurdity to the whole plat
form. It would have been infinitely
better if the convection had re
stricted itself to a proper reference
to the late congressman, aud omit
ted entirely the painful effort to pass
intelligently and truthfully on pub
lr. R. It. Miller' Visit.
Next Thursday will be the occa
sion of Dr. K. B. Miller's regular
monthly visit to our city. For a pe
riod of more than three'years he has
made these regular visits, and he has
had patients from every section of
this county who attest to his great
skill in the cure of chronic diseases.
Still there are others afflicted, those
who have chronic ailments from the
effects of which they have suffered
for years. It is quite probable that
they could be restored to health, so
that they could enjoy life and lie hap
py, if provided with propor medicine.
As Dr. Miller has cured so many such
afflicted in this county, it is quite
probable that those now deseased
mostof them, at least could be cured
by his treatment. Call and consult
with him; he'll not charge you un
less yon put yourself under his treat

THE FARMERS' INSTITUTE.
The Keeewt Meeting at Hllts-lale Inter
The meeting of the Cock Island
County Farmers institute at Hills
dale Feb. 22. was a most interesting
and profitable one.
The subject of Fruit Culture"
was led by Eli Corbin, and the dis
cussions brought out many interest
ing points. In the absence of Mr.
Warr, Mr. McCulloch led the topic,
Science in Farming, and it was re
vealed to the farmers that they are
in debt to science for the most of
what they know about farming.
Should Questions of Political Econ
omy be Discussed in Farmers Insti
tutes. led by L. O. Jahns, was cn.
tcrcl into with a vim that shows
that farmers are not dead to ques
tions of this character, and the ma
jority favored discussing these qu es
tions with other farm topics.
Court house bonds were discussed
at length in the evening session. In
the talk upon the topic. -Farmers
Mutual Insurance. by John Schall,
it was shown that this was the cheap
est and best insurance for the farm
er, being perfectly safe and leaving
or keepirg all the money at home.
The topic. "Public School,"' was led
by Mrs. E. Hun toon.
At the opening service in the
morning Miss Tillie Liphardt led the
song "Our Country," w hich was par
ticipated in by all present with patri
otic zeal. Music, both vocal and in
strumental, was made a very agree
able part of the program through the
day and evening, while the school
children gave some splendid recita
tions, as did also some of the school
teachers present, making it in al! one
of the most profitable and interesting
institute meetings of the season.
A lfueho!l Treasure.
D. W. Fuller, of Canajoharie, N.
Y., says that he always keeps Dr.
King's New Discovery in the house,
and his family has always found the
very best results follow its use; that
lie would not be without it, if pro
curable. G. A. Dykeman, druggist,
Catskill. N. Y., says that Dr. King's
New Discovery is undoubtedly the
best cough remedy; that he has used
it in his family for eight years, and
it has never failed to do all that is
claimed for it. Why not try a reme

John H. Cleg?, a well-known expert ac
countant and oarsman, was set upon by a
party of Ave drunken men and poundod
so badly that he has since bn confined
to a hospital and will be for several weeks
to coma. Clejrg knew his assailants, but
refused to take any action ia tbo courts
against them because he was not suro of
conviction. Instead he sought an "eye
for an eye" punishment, and banded a
number of his friends together for that
purpose. These have found Clesar's as

ministered to C'lejrx, who has received re
ports of his friends' achievements with
considerable satisfaction while confined
to his bed of pain.
