Under the above heading the , West
Cork EagU graphically portrays the
exodus that ia afflicting Ireland at the
present time, and presents the only
remedy, which it says is the eradication
of landlordism. The Eagle speaks out
plainly on the question which menaces
' the future welfare of the green isle, which
orators have pleased to term the "first
flower of the earth and first gem of the
sea." It Bays in its issue of May 11:
During the week ending on Sunday
last, two thousand Are hundred emigrants
left Queenslown for America. This is
the record of one week of a long season,
and what a record! Our best men and
- women, the "bone and sinew" of the
country, the young and hearty peasants,
flying in thousands from their native land,
hurrying away to foreign climes to seek
a livelihood that they cannot obtain at
bomet Year after year, month after
month, this awful dream is going on, the
life-blood of the country is ebbing away
with every cargo of living freight that
leaves the cove of Cork, and at this hour
the outlook is as gloomy as ever. There
are those who believe that the emigration
is due to the fact that there are too many
people in the country, and that this an
nual exodus is necessary to get rid of the
surplus population. What! a "sur
plus population in Ireland? Here is a
One country; area, 2U,(X)i),lXM acres,
mostly arable; good climate; pretty well
civilized; and called on platforms the
"first flower of the earth and first gem of
the sea" Is It possible that flower,"
this "gem. cannot manage to support
such a beggarly number of people as
four-and-a half millions or so? But we
are told that it cannot support them, and
that it is necessary that congested dis
tricts should be relieved by emigration.
Emigration has been going on with a
vengeance, and shows no signs of abat-
ing; that "surplus" population is buying
'passage tickets with a lavish hand, but
where is the relief? Is the country im
proving? Are the paupers decreasing?
Are the rates beiDg reduced ? What in the
name of everything good, is this emigration
doing? It is making the country poorer
year after year; that is what it is doing,
and doing thoroughly. The best men
and the best women are departing, leav
ing behind them the old and feeble, and
idle, and their beloved land going into
deeper decay every year. Arable land
going to wildness, fewer acres under
crops, less production of food from the
soil these are the results of getting rid
of this "surplus" population. Lamenta
ble, deeply lamentable, is this awful
drain of the best in the land. But let
nobody blame those who are departing
Poor boya and poor girls, good, affec
tionate, Warm-hearted souls, are going
away because there is no field for them at
borne, and, while they are young and
nearly, tney wish to get on in tbe world

at their loss with deep regret. But what
is to be expected from them? Cry

flaunting flags, brass bands, resolutions.
leading articles, "undying aspirations,"
"first flower of the earth and first gem of
the sea" all these are very good things
in tneir way. but their way does not tend
in tbe direction of stopping emigration
Observe, there are tbe resolutions and
speeches, and other things on one side.
and there is emigration on the other
wbich Is the victor? Emigration, unde
niably, and the resolutions, et cetera, have
as much effect on tbe tide of emigrants as
me word 01 Jb.mg Canute bad on
tbe tide of the English channel a thous
and years ago. The truth is. tbe
sad truth is, that emigration will be
stopped neither by fine political har
angues, nor the smooth words of philan
thropists. It ia not the result of a "sur
plus" population, except of a "surplus"
population of landlords. It is tbe result
of a crippled state of agriculture and in
dustry, due solely to that blight of
blights, that curse of dirges, landlord
ism. There are broad acres run to waste
all over the land, and broad acres ready
to produce frnit for God's children, if
only tbe plow is set to work and seed
sown; there are ample opportunities
everywnere for the production of teem
ing food for man and beast in this
island, but it is left idle, kept idle, and
pronioitea irom being used as God in
tended that it should be used. The bind
laws and customs, then, laws and cus
toms that keep the land from its proper
junctions, are tbe cause of tbe poverty
in our iann, ana tbe cause of that emi
gration which every sincere Irmhman re
grets, but is powerless to stop. If emi
gration ia ever to be stopped, "Back to
tbe Land" must be the cry the rallying
cry before which landlordism, in every
shape and form must, slink away to de
served oblivion. Academic politicians
ana sentimental politicians may talk,
and resolve, and pass bills as much as
they please, but until the cry of "Back
to the Land" is rung out throughout the
kingdom, until tbe fossilized notions of
"rested interest and "private proper-,
ty in land are dispelled for ever, we
have nought to expect but crowded
workhouses and thousands of emigrants.

E., ordinary physician to II. M., the
Queen, in Scotland, professor of practice
or physic in tbe University of Edinburgh,
writes r "The arteries are sclerosed and

not so small in the waxy disease. In that
flection the small vessels ia other parts
are frequently tbe seat or waxy degener

in the three forms of kidney disease
classed aa Bright s disease, the arteries
suffer changes, and it matters not whether
they undergo sclerotic, atheromatous or
waxy change, they are so weakened as to
endanger rupture under any increased
pressure. This explains the frequency of
apoplexy ana paralysis, and aa clearly
demonstrated that the only preventive of
these disastrous ruptures of tbe blood
vessels is the timely use of Warner's Safe

According to the Argus "the chief
beauty" of a paid fire department is that
"it cuts down its working forces to a few
well disciplined men and dispenses with
uncontrollable masses who are of more
hindrance than use at a fire." The in
ference from this is that a volunteer
department is an "uncontrollable mass"
and that any words of praise for
volunteer companies to be found in tbe
Akous are so much empty civility ground
out to fill space. It is welcome to its
position. Tbe Union esteems and re
spects the volunteer force and would
rather trust the Rock Island companies
in any emergency than tbe paid para
phernalia of Davenport. Our firemen
are under excellent discipline and admir
able control, and to insinuate the contra
ry is both unjust and ungenerous. And
in a fire a number of well trained and
promptly obedient men tell, as well as
plenty of good hose and apparatus. Rock
Island has a fire company in every one of
its seven wards, the total membership
being over 100 and the annual expendi
lure on their account would not maintain
a paid department of four men. But
perhaps four men would constitute tbe
Akocs' ideal department the "few"
would certainly be secured, whether they
were any more "well disciplined" than as
many of the veteran volunteers or not

the imagination be considered "uncon
The paid department is getting there
jast tbe same, even as it does in all
cities wbich call themselves cities, and
where intelligence and progress triumph
over ignorance and hollow minded,
thick-skulled prejudice. The little bit
of taffy which the Union bestows upon
the volunteer fire department would be
all very nice, were the firemen so dull as
to be unable to penetrate its purpose.
The Argus has no ax to grind with tbe
firemen, nor has it failed to laud them
on all occasions, but it still modestly
asserts that a dozen di9iplined men are
superior to the uncontrollable masses, a
fact that Rock Island will find out some
day, and. it is to be hoped, not to its

ingenious prepaying gas meter based on the

way station in London. It consists of a small
attachment, which can be applied to any
meter, and which will cause tbe gas to be de
livered in definite quantities as paid for by
pence dropped into a box. All that has to be
done is to drop a penny and pull a small
handle, when sufficient gas for the supply of
an ordinary burner for six hours will be de
livered from the meter. . Any number of
pennies may be placed in the box, one at a
time, up to 143, the handle being pulled after
each penny, which would insure 858 hours'
gas to one burner, or a shorter supply to
