' I was on the old Kentucky when she
came up the river on her first trip, in
1836." Some such rtmrbs as this, with
vigorous c tnpariaons of the methods of
ateamboating and traveling in gcntral
in vogue in those days and now, is to be
heard every once in a while from some
old settler. The ancient history of the
river and the almost forgotten boats that
then traversed it lives only in the mem
ories of the men who were on earth in
those times, and it may be added its bold
on life is very f leader, for there are only
a few of them left, and a few more years
will remove the last of the men jrho dis
tinctly reca'l the early steamers that
plowed the waters of the Mississippi.

'Our Yig.rou Moral nz Paper.
Because The Argus announced Mon
day evtniug the probable appointment of
a receiver for one of Rock Island's lead
ing corporations. an announcement
which the events of the following day
amply verified, ihe Uoion is seized with
one of its idiotic spel's. Simply be-,
cause The Argus happened to hear what
the Union, it seems, was unable to hear,
of an item of interest in advance of its
occurrence, any number of spiteful little
things are said, not only about The Ar
gcs, but about the attorneys who oppdse
the corporation whose interests the Union
'u making such a bungling job of cham
pioning. The morning paper for in
stance asks: "The question arises, is all
this fuss made for spite or are The Ab
gcs and the attorneys for Mr. Bermond
in the employ of the old line companies?"
etc. It begins to look as if the members
of the bar as well as the press would be
obliged to consult the special wishes of
the Union before adopting a course of
procedure in tbe interests of justice or
public policy. What a pack of
ninnies the Rock Island bar
would be composed of under
such circumstances, to say nothing of the
degredation to utter worthlessness to
which the press would be sent! No, The
Abols has no tears of any such condition
of affairs. This paper is not controlled
either by the wishes of any other paper
or by the feelings of the Mississippi Val
ley Insurance company, or any other cor
poration nor by any attorney or attorneys,
and it does not belieye the attorneys on
whom tbe Union attempt to visit its
wrath will be in the least swayed from any
adopted position by its utterances.
In view of the fact that William Mc
Eniry is associated on the side of the
case for which tbe Union has formed
such a peculiar dislike, is not that paper
getting a little rash in its statements? It
has been rather careful in wnat it has
aaid about Mr. McEniry in the last year
or so, since te brought it down upon its
marrow bones in humble and earnest en
treaty. Will Mr. McEniry have to call
tbe morning paper down again? He has
but to say tbe word .
The only corrplexion powder in the
world that is without vulgarity, without
injury to tbe user and without doubt a
purifier, is Pozzoni'e.

There ia some talk of several o' our
young ladies attending the Port Byrou
academy the coming term.
Mr. Blackman's daughter Cora, of Mo
line has been visiting frieuds at Joilin
several weeks. She returned home yes

will willingly and readily patronize Mr.
Little as they have promised.
The rain that we had on Saturday and
Sunday morning last was a complete
Godsend. The corn was beginning to

Anyone traveling in England would be
amused on reading some of tbe public
house signs. Upon one is the following:
The soldier fights for all ;
The parton prays for ail:
And tbe fanner pays for all.
The above is an inference that the
greatest part of the burden and expenses
ot government and civilized society rests
upon tbe shoulders of agriculture, and
that condition seems to arise from the
fact that the price, as a rule, of that
which he has to purchase are both fixed
for him, he having to take the tnarket
ptice for that which he sells, and pays
the price asked for that which he has to
As a farmers expenses have been in
creased by legislation, it has been sug
gested by neisnbor "O." that his income
should be correspondingly increased in
order to place the business of farming
upon a ' fair paying basis," but how that
is to be accomplished the writer is care
ful not to slate. Of course the government
might form itself into a huge trust and
issue a decree that wheat shall not be
sold for less than Si. 25; corn 50 and oaw
40 cen's per bushel, and that a fat steer
and a fat hog shil not be soli for
less than five cents per pound live weight,
but that would be simply class legislation,
and tbe real Simon-pure farmers are not
asking that one injustice be placed upon
another. "Two blacks don't make a
while, acd two wrongs don't make a
But supposing the government shouli
place farming upon a "fair paying basis"
ia such a way, we then wotli have the
consumers to settle with; the laboring
class would strike for hither wages, be
cause living had been ma.le more costly.
The manufacturers having to pay higher
wages would demand higher import duties
so that they could place a higher price
upon their goods, acd thus we wou!d be
swinging the circle and whipping the
deyil round the stump continually and
what hhve we acrnmplisht-d? Have we
not on account of our dearer nianulact
ures 6imply and eUectualiy walled our
selves in. and shut ourseives out of a
foreign market? SIcltcm is Parvo.
