The Ohio campaign
There is no doubt that the beneficiaries
of the McKinley law will strain every
nerve to elect the author of that measure
governor of Ohio this year. They will
pour money like water into Ohio, and wilf
concentrate all their resources on that
state. The democrats have no big cars
poration to back them, and will have to
rely solely upon a frank appeal to tb.3 in
telligence and the enlightened self -inter --
est of the people.
It is not to be denied, as tbe IadUcap
olis Sentinel observes, that the chances
are against them. Ohio is naturally a
republican state. When a full vote is
polled the state almost invariably goes
republican. The electoral vote of Ohio
has been given to every republican can
did ate for president since the party was
organized. The republicans have much
more at stake than tbe democrats. Tbe
loss of the state to the republicans would
insure their defeat in tbe national elec
tion next year, but their success would be
no such evil augury to the democrats.
In 1875, after a memorable campaign,
Ilayea carried Ohio, but tbe next year he
lost New York, New Jersey, Connecticut
and Indiana for the presidency and was
defeated. As the New York Evening
Mr. McKinley may carry Ohio next fall
and he may even roll up such a msior.ty
as to make him tbe presidential candidate
t t his party in 1893 Put the contest of
1892 will still remain undetermined.
Yet there is one thins very favorable to
the democrats : The fact that tbe election
will be held under tbe Australian system,
With the secret ballot the money con
tributed by the protected factory lords
and mining barons cannot be used in the
purchase of votes to anything like such
an extent as in former years. This cannot
fail to help the democrats, who are.unable
to command much money for vote buy
inar purposes, even if they were inclined
to resort to such methods. But the pro
tectionists can still use money very effec
tive! v in other ways than the direct
bribery of voters.
The Ohio democrats have an up-hill
fight before them. Should they win the
triumph will be glorious almost beyond
precedent; should they fail they will not
have lost any ground which it is necessary
for them to bold in order te gain the next

EXERCISE AND DIGESTION.
The Influence of Muscular Action and Ab
solute Rest on the Gastric Functions.
In a lecture before the Medical Society of
Giessen on "The Influence of Exercise on
Digestion," an abstract of which is given
in The Lancet, Dr. Streug describes some
experiments made in the clinic. The first
were on two does. Twenty-five grains of
meat suspended in sOO cubic centimeters ot
warm water were twice injected into the
fasting stomach, and after one feeding the
dogs were compelled to remain for three
hours in absolute bodily rest, while after
the other feeding they were made to take
After three hours the contents of the
stomach were obtained and analyzed. The
quantity did not essentially differ in the
two cases. The experiments consequently
tended to prove that exercise does not in
fluence the time required for digestion.
The chemical analysis also detected no
difference. The same results were obtain
ed by substituting the white of an egg for
the meat. Tbe experiments were then re
peated twenty-five timeson three men with
healthy stotUHChs. Two of these suffered
from sycosis, and the third from incipient
muscular atrophy. They were fed each
time with 200 grams of minced meat, a
bnn, a plate of bouillon and three spoon
fuls of mashed potatoes, and the contents
of tbeir stjpnHchs wejt obtained four hours
and a half afterward.
The exercise af tat meals consisted partly
lO. gymnastics, partly" in walking. Abso
lute rest was obtained in bed. These ex
periments gave the same results as those
on the dogs, the difference resulting from
the chemical analysis being especially im
perceptible. The author therefore con
cludes that the gastric function is in no
way influenced either by muscular actiou
or by absolute rest.
Extreme Nfirons Tension.
In an interesting treatise on the control
and proper use of the nerves, Annie Pa yson
Lall says, "Kxtreme nervous tension seems
to be so peculiarly American ttiat a Ger
man psysician coming to this country to
practice liecame puzzled by t he variety of
nervous disorders he was called upon to
help, aud finally announced the discovery
of a new disease which he called American
itis." Miss Call directs the attention of nervous
women to absurdities of action and thought.
"Few people know how to sleep. They
never learn to relax their muscles, but en
deavor to hold the bed, instead of allowing
the bed to hold them. The same useless
display of energy is noted in sitting, in
waiting, in driving, in listening to preach
ing and music strained muscles, fatiguing
The author affirms that one of the best
and surest ways to govern the temper is
"to lower the voice. The nervous system
and the voice are in such exquisite sym
pathy that they constantly act and react
upon each other."
According to Miss Call proper manage
ment of the muscles and breathing power
largely decrease fatigue in writing and
sewing. She says: "1 fear I do not exag
gerate when I say that in nine cases out of
ten a woman would rather sew with a pain
in her neck than stop for the few minutes
it would take to relax it and teach it truer
habits, so that in the end the pain might
be avoided entirely."
The Treatment of Frartnred Fingers.
In the treatment of fracture I lay great
stress on not confining the fingers iu a
bandage. The fingers should lie left free,
so that the tendons can play in their
sheaths and the little joints remain flexi
ble. It the joint of any aired person be
confined for a certain length of time even
though it tie not injured the joint thus
confined will become stiff. The fold of the
capsular ligament will have assumed such
a strained position that as soon as the pa
tient makes an attempt to move his joint
the very act will elicit pain. Gerster.
The Most Important Social Events Which
I)iHt ingninh the Month of Roses.
The favorite wedding season beins again
with us, The Housekeeper's Weekly fur
nishes some appropriate items alxiut fash
ionable customs, valuable to anylnidy in
terested either closely or in a remoter de
gree in a prospective marriage ceremony:
Brides sometimes have the left hand bare
as they walk to the altar, but usually the
finger of the glove is ripped so as to receive
the ring without removal.
At the reception the bridal party stand
under a bell or other appropriate floral de
vice, the horseshoe being a favorite em
blem. The host and hostess the parents of the
bride stand to receive with the bride
groom and bride, and the ushers present
each guest as soon as the wraps i.ave leen
After the guest has said some pleasant
things to the parents aud congratulated
the newly married couple she relinquishes
the usher's arm, and he returns to the door
for other arrivals. The guest chats pleas
antly a little while with others, presently
going into supper and afterward home.
A reception usually lasts two hour,
when tbe bride dons a traveling suit, the
good by s are said, and the hnppy pair are
driven off amid a shower of rice.
A wedding breakfast, which is eaten
standing, may consist of many delicacies
or be simple. Chicken and lobster salad,
boned turkey, scalloped oysters, ices,
creams, fruit, claret and coffee are often
It is customary for a newly wedded couple
to send out, after their marriage, cards
having the date of two or more reception
days at their new home. Where this is not
intended, the future address should be sent
with the wedding cards.
When, from the large number of ac
quaintances or other cause, but few can be
Invited to the reception, the church invita
tion only should be sent.
Such an invitation requires no answer,
and the making of a wedding gift is op
tional. The showing of gifts is also a mat
ter of personal taste, but is seldom in
dulged in by people of culture and refine
ment. A private home wedding Bhould be
followed by "announcement cards."
THE COTTOh ELOSSOMS.
Description of Some of the Interesting
The event of the week on Thompson
Btreet was the arrival from Detroit of Sir
Isaac Walpole, Waydown Bebee, Give
adam Jones, Elder Penstock, Shindig
Watklns and Samuel Shin, all old and
prominent members of the Limekiln
club. All are married men and will be
followed by tbeir families in a few days.
To avoid seasickness and the danger of
falling into luxurious habits, they came
through on freight trains, and thorough
ly posted themselves on the geography
of the country they passed over.
Sir Isaac Walpole is, next to Brother
Gardner, the best known colored man in
the world. He is the man who made the
discovery that 'possum oil and green per
simmons rubbed on the handle of the
front door would keep a hoodoo away,
and his answer to Bob Ingersoll is re
garded as the greatest dressing down that
celebrated unbeliever ever got. Sir Isaac's
motto is, "Nobody was eber made to
change his opinyuns by bein' knocked
down wid a squash."
Waydown Bebee was for six years sec
retary of the Limekiln club, and he was
the first resident of Michigan to spell
"sugar" with an "h" and make a go of
it. His published instructions, entitled
"How to Detect Gunpowder in a Stick
of Firewood," have 6aved thousands of
Stoves in this country from being blown
op and rendered worthless. His motto
is, "Nebber lend money to a man who
leaves his clothesline out frew de week."
Giveadam Jones is the individual who
used to guard the outer portak, lead in
trusive strangers down 6tairs, and take
possession of charters which branch
clubs had forfeited but refused to give
up. His looks are deceptive. He is not
only naturally tender hearted, but has
a mind which runs to the sciences. He
is the man who discovered that chil
blains were the result of lying with the
head covered up and the feet out of bed,
and was the first man in this country to
cure lopshoulder by fastening a weight
to the other one and pulling it down on
level. His motto is, "Alius hev some
f your own friends on de jury dat tries
Elder Penstock, Samuel Shin and
Shindig Watkins are known as the trio
vho put in thirty-seven cents apiece
j.nd discovered the science of perpetual
motion, but lost it a day or two later
when the elder's barn was struck by
lightning. They are men of strong in
dividuality, and if there is such a thing
as proving to the public that the sun
noves around the world they will do it
before the summer is over.
When the regular meeting opened at
Watermelon hall, Saturday evening.
J adge Why fore Johnson arose and moved
that the rules be suspended, and that the
nw arrivals be declared unanimously
elected as members. The motion was
w conded from all parts of the hall, and
was carried with such enthusiasm that
Colonel Catalogue Taylor burned his
si in on the redhot stove, and Professor
SLylook White broke a pane of glass in
oi e of the allev windows and came very
near being fined $17,000.
Applications were received from four
teen different states and Canada, aggre
gating twenty-eight names. Among
others were those of Professor Ant.imc.nv
Dswson, the colored mockingbird of
Alibama, and Sir Godfrey Hazelton,
kn Dwn all over the south for his essay
en itled ".Why de 'Tater Bug Nebber
Attacks de Onion."
The committee' on applications an
nounced that they had rejected the fol
lov ing applications for causes named:
lrfird Enthusiastic Tompkins, of Louis
ville, for refusing to pay back pew rent
and for licking the trustee who came to
dun him for it.
General Disqualified Stebbins, of Co
lnn.bus, O., for going to the postoffice
fou-teen times in one day and pretending
tha- he expected a money order.
Cncle Henry Clay Green, of Terre
Haute, Ind., for leaving a job of white
washing at a critical period and going
off to a dog fight
A communication from the secretary
of the "Last Man club," of Cincinnati,
inqt iredif the Cotton Blossoms would
do t lem the great honor to affiliate and
exchange ideas on subjects of vital in
terest to the people of America.
"Ie secretary will answer to de effect
dat we will do nuffin' of de kind," replied
Brother Gardner with a great deal of
emphasis. "About fo' y'ars ago 1 was
invited to go to Cincinnati and deliber
my lecture on 'Why Man Can't Fly.
When 1 arrove in de town I was met by
a croiiS eyed cull'd man, wid feet seven
teen inches long, who had been sent
down as a committee. He stole my
aachel befo' we arrove at de hall, an'
dooria' my lecture somebody sneaked
my P ug hat an' somebody else picked
my pocket of seben dollars in cash.
When I raised a row I was hit below
