xoldesi Rod tUfi Popalar Favorite
The Beat KrprrsratatiTe ef Aaaer-
Few people go into the country for a
visit or a drive without returning with an
abundance of golden rod which is used
to ornament the rooms of our principal
society ladies, and of the people also.
This flower has been voted the best repre
sentative of America, by the people. But
there has been no legislative enactment
by congress establishing the same. Never
tbeless it has taken a hold of the hearts
of our people to a considerable extent, and
it would require long arguments to dis
place it and have another substituted.
Our lanes and byways, and hills and val
leys, from one end of the country to the
other, are prolific with this specimen of
the floral kingdom. It rises its sun
kissed plumes and nods them in unison
with the royal parple of the iron weed.
and will hold its own for hardiness with
any plant that we know of. Its charac
teristics are almost purely American, yet
the Peoria Journal thinks another plant
might be a belter representative of the
people. That is the castor bean.
True, says the Journal, this is not
a native of the United States, but
neither are the people of the United
States native to the country. The castor
bean has the same characteristic as that
of most emigrants to this ccuntry. It
readily adapts itself to any part of the
soil of the nation. Its branches are
broad and the leaves are beautiful. Birds
of the air may light upon them and re
ceive their sheltering csre. lnen again
this plant is useful as well as highly or
namental. If foreigners did not like it in
its growing state, they might perhaps be
better plessed with the extract of the
bean. It would have such a soothing
effect upon them, something like the pic
ture of Oen. Jackson bad upou a certain
member of the English nobility at one
All nations seem to be under the neces
sity of having a national flower. There
is the shamrock of Ireland, the thistle o
Scotland, the rose of England and the
lilies of France. Even Australia has her
"bush" and for America to be behind the
times would never do. Therefore, if our
national legislature has not already
adopted the golden rod as the flower of
our country, they should do so at oace
The lpertlos Angel Ketnrna.
Mrs. Medora Kinnehan, the angel who
recently escaped from Schweinfurth1
"heaven" nt Hock ford, and revealed the
vile practices of that cesspool, has re
turned to the fold. She says she will
live there and worship the Lord and
master foreyer; that she has sinned and
gone astray, but now her eyes are opened
and she will never depart from the fold
again. She has been sheltered and cared
for several weeks by Mrs A. W. Price, one
one of Rockford's most philanthropic
and wealthy women, who agreed to go
with her lo Kentucky. They went to
the train, but at the last moment before
leaving Mrs. Kinnehan said: ' I have
changed my mind. I know Schweinfurth
is my Siviour, and I am going back to
him. Mrs. Price pleaded with her for
half an hour, but to no purpose. When
told that she might become a mother as
Mary Weldon had, she replied-
should esteem it the highest glory." Then
she hired a conveyance, and taking her
little boy, whose cries excited the whole
neighborhood, she was driven rapidly
back to "heaven."
The Monmouth Convention
At the convention which nominated

the downfall of Mr. Neece, as the Ma

downfall about it, for that matter. The
convention was an orderly, deliberate
body and each candidate had his friends,

bim as long as they considered it judicious
to do so and when they found they were
not successful they gracefully bowed to
the inevitable. Mr. Neece, from the
body of the convention, expressed his de

success of the nominee and that is all the

MR, 6 EST IN THE HOUSE:
The Manser In Which the tomm of
Zeal Other Thlsca Cieta Along;.
In yesterday's Argus appeared some
remarks upon the glowing tribute paid
to Mr. Ocst in the Union by a con
tributor to that paper.' When the
congressman from this district stood up
to speak concerning the section of the
eight-hour law allotted to him, he com
menced by saying he would be as brief as
possible because other gentlemen wanted
to speak. One would have thought that
as he has had so much difficulty in "catch
ing the speaker's eye" in the past that he
would have made the most possible ose of
the time allotted him without this unnec
essary preface. Still he used all the time
he was allowed. "except to say "this is the
first occasion during the present session
on which I have occupied any time." To
this bumble apology for appearing at all,
a member called, "You cannot help that,"
at which there was a laugh . "No," said
said Mr. Gest, "that cannot be helped,"
at which there was more laughter. This
was on the 21st of the month. On the
next day during a discuesion in the bouse
Mr. Gest made an attempt to say some
thing, and got as far as "Mr. Speaker."
Mr. Speaker told him that another gen
tleman had the floor. Mr. Gest again
rose and said: "I rise to enquire what is
before the house?" Mr. Enloe answered
"I am before it." The laujfh was raised
again, Mr. Enloe continuing to speak,
while Mr. Gest relapsed into hia usual
silence. This all goes to show that our
representative is a man of zeal and ardor
and perseverance and other things.
W hen you come to vote for Gest just
stop anu consider why on earth a man
living in McDonouuh county should do
so. In ail the time he lias been in cou
cress be has bad no thought for this end
of the district. Bushnell Democrat.
W. II. Gest is the friend ot the laboring
man. He understands what it is to toil
and consequently the laboring man knows
where to hnd bim. Laboring men can
make their choice between Gest and
Cable, and everybody knows that in that
case the latter will be found wauling iu
the balance. Monmouth Atla.
in a norn. uest is a party man
tnrougn and through; he never votes
any other way; no matter how infa
mous a bill may be, or whether it is
for the good of the workingman or
not, if it is a republican measure he votes
for it and makes his inquiries afterward.
Yes, he is a friend of the workingman, a
great friend. To years ago tie voted
for high protective measures at every op
portunity; again, later he voted for the
McKinley bill, and is now on the recips
rocity fence waiting to see which way the
bell aheep jumps It looks like he had
his mind on the good ot the working
man. It looks as if be knew enough to

republican, for the republican pnrtv first.
last and all the time, no matter whether
the workingman gets lost in the shuffle or
not. Bushnell Democrat.
It is amusing to note how the repuhli
can papers of this district are exerris-
over what they are pleased to call "Ben
Cable's bar'l." The idea of a democrat
having a "bar'l" and the fear that he will
use it on the blocks-of five plan, coin
pletcly unnerves them. Possess Your
souls in peace, lenighted Dudleyites
The democrats never copy your bad ex
amples. What money Mr. Cable puts in
to the campaign will be spent in a h-giti
mate manner, and if any of you fellows
are on the make you will have to hunt up
some other man than Ben T. Citlilt;, our
next congressman from the Eleventh dis

Deafness Can't ha Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will he destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused by catarrh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's

A Word About Cornh. -
One ofthe chief causes of corns, bunions,
etc., la tinht shoes. The majority of the
nustomers are ladies. Corn a come in two
varieties soft and bard. 1 be soft corn is
formed by the'acid perspirtv Ion of the feet
and first appears in the shape of a white
blister, whose edges easily peal off. Ladies
who wear shoes large enough for them
seldom, if ever, Buffer from torus. Stumpy
or short shoes cause corns t form easily.
I have frequently known cases where a
soft corn affected the wlole foot and
lUinions are often mistaken for harA
corns. A bunion forma usually on the
Hide of the foot or between the toes. A
bunion is nothing more r less than a
strained joint, caused by a short or narrow
shoe. French heeled boots nd shoes have
been the cause of untold misery to ladies,
and since the common sense shoe has be
come fashionable the wearers of them
have had fewer corns. Narrow dancing
pumps are also injurious to t he feet. Oper
ations on fibrous and nerve t?orns are ex
tremely difficult. Herald of Health.
Writing a Famous loein.
The poem of "Curfew Must Not Ring
To-night" was suggested to n e by the read
ing of a story called "Love and Loyalty,"
in April. 1S07. I was then a I lain, country
school girl, not yet 1", residing with my
parents at Litchfield. Mich., laid under the
pretext of working out mathematical
problems, with my arithmetic before me,
1 wrote the poem roughly on my slate. 1
was forced to carry on my literary work
under these difficulties bemuse of the
opinion of my parents that iny time could
lie better employed than in "Idle dreams
and useless rhymes."
I wrote the first copy on my slate, be
tween 4 and 6 o'clock iu the afternoon; but
much time has since been spent iu correct
ing and revising it. I had no thought that
1 would ever be able to wr'te anything
worthy of public notice. The poem was
first published iu The Detroit Commercial
Advertiser in the fall of 1S70 The editor
upou receipt of my UKinusc-ipt at once
wrote me a lengthy letter of congratula
