in the office of county judge, caused by
tbe dealh of Judge Jonathan H. Baker.
KosweilP. Flower heads the demo

a fitting leader for a great party in a
great state. He will be elected without
doubt, and should bis majority cliruD any
where near to tbe decimal altitude of
Cleveland's in 1882, it will go a long way
toward deciding the democratic presiden

Cextraua (111.) Democrat: Itisnow
obseived that Congressman Springer
stands a great deal stronger in tbe iace
for the speakership of the next Louse
than he has ever before. Tbe fight made
between the two southern candidates,
Mills ar.d Crisp, is becoming so intense
that it is dividing tbe southern strength
and a northern candidate is likely to be
taken. Mr. Springer's ability and qualii
fications for tbe place are unquestioned,
and unless someone of the other candi
dates obtains a lead which will give him
a nomination early in tbe balloting, tbe
name of Springer is likely to go to tbe
Notwitdstakdixq the fact that all the
conditions are favorable for a great busi
ness boom this fall the record shows that
there were no lets than 214 business
failures in the Uni'.ed Slates last week,
being some 21 more than for tbe corres
ponding period last year. And yet we
have the most enormous crops gathered
'n the United States, with a short crop in
Europe and a large foreign dtmnnd.
Still the iniquitous tariff of CO per cent,
does its work. But the champion cf

TnE New York Central Railway, it is
claimed, has beaten all records for fast
time, on this or the other side of the At,

tbe new standard passenger engines
weighing 2 CO. 000 pounds and three pri
vate passenger cars weighirg 260 010
pounds, carrying Vice President Webb

falo in -440 minu'es, including three stop?.
The distance is 438 miles, or over a mi'e
a minute, because the three stops hie in
eluded, aDd one of Ihem was seven and a
half minutes in length. This is a mag
nificent showing, but a 1 it tie too fast f i
ordinary people, the CLicnco Post re
marks. Forty miles an hour is good
enough for the average traveler. Bat no
doubt there are business men who wouM
not object to 100 miles an boar and would
take all the rUks for the sake of Biv-ng

Peoria Herald .
Several years ato wben Judge Worth
ington was running for congress against
Julius S. Starr, he made use of the ex
pression during one of his speeches,
democrats are thick this fill; all you
have to do is shake the bushes to firjej
them." It proved true in that case be
cause Grover Cleveland was elected
triumphantly to the presidency ar.d Mr.
Worth in gtoc hirtst'.f went to congress.
But what was tiue then is even more ap
parent today when state after state is
dropping out of the republican column.
Twenty-seven states out of forty-four
now boast of L aving democratic governors
and the only ttiiue needed to make Illi
nois join them is to present a candidate
in whom the people of the
state have an implicit fun a
and who can depend upon them for sup
port . There is one man in the stale wbo
cou'd carry it for the democratic party
with a whoop. lie has twice been elect
cd to a stale office over popular republi
can candidates and by immense majori
ties. Probably no man in tbe state com
bines in one individual so many points
that etdear him to tbe people 68 he.
That man is Ilenry Raab, state super
intendent of public instruction. Strong,
able, manly, independent, he stands to
day among the leaders of the democratic
party in tbe state. His political enemies
are bis personal friends. Be
sides that be is one of the best
campaigners who ever started out
to make a canvass. Like Lincoln he has
tbe happy faculty of gaining alike the
respect and tbe confidence of the common
people, without whose aid no man can be
elected to office. There is so dearth of
candidates for tbe position and all of
them are good men. Gen. John C. Black,
Adlai . Stevenson, A. J. Hunter, Clay
ton . Crafts and a number of others are
ready to buckle on tbe armor and make a
winning fight. Henry Kaab is the peer
of them all and 1b possessed of the pres
tige of a career of unbroken success. Tbe
Herald, therefore, unhesitatingly presents
bis name among tbe others for the con
sideration of tbe democrats of Illinois.
DRIVING ON MUDDY ROADS.
Country Gentleman Explains How to Io
It Without Splashing- Waom.
Every inan who purchases a new wagon
or buggy, and while the paint aril var
nish are yet fresh and brilliant, will nat
urally desire to avoid having them
splashed with mud and generally defaced
by driving over the roads of the neigh
borhood in a muddy seasou.or after a
long and heavy rain. The appearance of
such a vehicle is represented in the fiit
cut, the swiftly turning wheel having
thrown the mud by its centrifugal force
well np on the sides of the covered top.
A MCD SPATTERED BUGGY.
Such defacement is. in a great meas
ure, unnecessary. A certain velocity
may be given -to the driving that will
prevent most of this mnl splashing, es
lcially if the mud is thin and shallow.
Jf the horse is driven on a walk, or about
three miles an hour, the mud will ad
1 ere to the rim of the wheels and be car
ried np by them as they revolve. Its
veight will cause it to drop on the spokes
and hub, arid these, in a short time, will
be covered with it in one adhering mass,
as shown in Fig. 1 of the second cut.
Put drive the horse a little faster, on a
slow or moderate trot, four ami a half or
five miles an hour, and then the mud
which is carried np on the rim of the
wheels will not drop, for the increased
circular motion now given to them will
impart enough centrifugal force to hold
the mud to the wheel. The rim is the
oi ly part that will be muddy; the spokes
ar d linb will be clear Fig. 2. The
writer has successfully practiced this
course more than fifty years.
But if the horse is now driven six or
Feven miles an hour this increased
velocity will s-nd the mud off and all
parts of the vthicle will receive a copious
pl.-stering. At a speed ( f eialit or nirir.
miles it will be shot as high us the top i,f
the cover, and the driver will be liable To
receive aliV-ral share Fig.
1 his is iiot fiction. Afur a heavy rain,
when carriage roads are covered with
tw.i or tiiree inches (more or less) of
paitly liquid mud, a bngsry may be
cirieufr miles with sufficient care as
to receive very little of it except what
adheres to the rims of the wheels, the
driver being skillfnl enough to preserve a
uni'orm and, protier rate of travel. Or,
as sometimes, a mud pool extending the
fig. j slow m:ivino. rin. it memos
unrviNci. no. in mm: v..i.-a an uoiit.
whol'j breadth of the road may have to
le pa -sed and would spoil the new var
nish of the vehicle. The driver having
learn -d by trial how fast h, must drive
for t le occaM-m will pass the innuuy
pool with no defikm.i;t except on the
rims of the wheels.
A v-hicle which bee .i:n s cow rd with
soil mid sand is worn out in half the
time that a clean one may be used, and
the e re pointed out in these remarks
would have a large share in promoting
ItetuilH ill Utlttrr Making.
A Tort Atkinson dairyman, C. P.
Goodrich by name, gave the details of
his methods in making butter at a Wis
consin agricultural convention. It ap
pears from these that he churns three
times a week. The temperature of the
milk a; the time of churning varies, be
ing in the summer CO clegs, aud in the
winter (i degs. It is then washed in
water at 4C degs. and is washed in two
or three waters. He does not wash as
much is some lest he should destroy the
flavor. In salting he uses only an ounce
of salt to a pound of butter. It takes
about forty minutes to churn. He puts
in enough hot water to raise the tem
perature to 63 degs. in winter. He skims
the mil when it begins to turn. It is
set in shallow pans. Mr. Goodrich has
tried salting butter in brine and packing
it right from the churn, but does net
favor this plan. He packs his butter for

FroJeuur Cooks Wash for Trees.
The following is, according to Pro
fessor Cook, an effective wash for fruit
trees. It prevents egg laying and kills
the newly hatched caterpillars as they
begin to tunnel the trees: Take 100
fioundscf caustic potash, one barrel of
ime, one gallon of crude carbolic acid,
two pom. els of white arsenic or London
purple.Vhich is perhaps better and cer
tainly caeaper, and water enough to
make 300 gallons of the wash. This will
be sufncv.'nt for 8,000 trees; smaller quan
tities may be made in like proportion.

GERMS OF DISEASE.
The Microbe of Tuberculosis, Cholera,
Typhoid Fever and Diphtheria.
The theory of the bacterial origin of cer
tain diseases has come into general accept
ance among physicians within the past few
years, and there can be. no doubt that
niiero-oraaoisiiis of a perfectly definite and
specific form and character are found in
the secretions or excretions of the bodies
of persons Buffering from particular dis-
rayes. Koch's microbe iu the sputum, in
rases where consumption is suspected, is
now considered one of tbe most reliable
diacnostic sitrns that can be obtained, ac
cording to Popular Science News, which
describes as follows some photographs of
these microbes, which were origiuaily en
graved for La Nature:
In Fif,'. 1 in the first cut, the small rod
like bacilli of consumption, above referred
to, are shown, and X he few blood corpuscles
also represented serve to indicate their
comparative size. Fin. 2 is tbe celebrated
"comma" bacillus of Asiatic cholera, which
was also discovered by Dr. Koch while on
an expedition to India for the purpose of
stn.lyini; the disease in its original locality.
Fig. tin the second cut shows the char
acteristic uucrolie of typhoid fever, which
has so often been detected in polluted
water from which persous have contracted
the disease; and, perhaps, the most dreaded
microbe of all that found iu the mem
brane formed in t he throat of persons suf-
TVPHOIl) FKVEK DirilTilElilA.
ferinjr with diphtheria is shown in Fig. 2.
These last untried micro-organisms are
often extremely tenacious of life, and an
instance is reported where a prolonged
soaking in tiie strongest carbolic acid
failed to de-troy their vitality. This te
nacity of life may explain t lie sometimes
malignant character of the disease ami the
unsatisfactory rt.suirsof the usual methods
of t res; inent.
Such immense advances have lieen made
in the tic-id of bacteriology during the past
few ye.ir, and tiie results of the iuve-tiga-tious
have !-e:i of such pre eminent value
to medical and surgical science, that we
may hope that some method may be found
of absolute!- controlling those diseases
which are connected with the existence of
bacteria iu the organism.
A I'irepioof Juist.
Trofes-nr Goodman is reported by The
Builder as stating in a lecture ou Cre pre
vention that, generally speaking, wooden
joists are lietter for buildings thau steel or
iron joints. The two latter materials, he
explained, lose t heir st rengt h at a not very
high temperature, whereas wood would
sustain a heavy strain for a much longer
period when exposed to great heat. Be
sides, wheu wood has once been c harred it
does not burn so readily again. Iron and
sieel soon expand under the influence of
heat. Brick and stone are objectionable;
the former becomes fused under great heat,
and the latter is liable to crack or fly when
suddenly cooled after heating. The draw
back to tile is that when fire plays upon
the joist of floors fitted with them the
joists expand and allow the fire to play
upon the j .isls through tiie tiies. Port

Some ingenious Frenchman has found a
new use for broken glass. The Manufact
urer tells that in Paris fragments of broken
glass of various colors are mixed together,
after having been broken toa suitablesize;
they are then placed in molds lined wii h
silica, talc or some other resisting material,
and f.red. A coherent mass is produced
which can be dressed and cut into blocks,
which are, of course, irregularly colored.
Such blocks may lie used as artilicial mar
ble. The blocks are usually rough on one
side, owing, perhaps, to incomplete fusion;
this gives a surface which is admirably
adapted for causing them, especially if th'. y
are slablike in form, to adhere to wails
with the addition of a little mortar. Fiuu
decorative effects can thus be produced.
Designs iu relief can lie obtained by pres
sure w hile the block or slab is still plastic.
The Nature of a Cycloue.
The cyclone is a broad disturbance, hav

sometimes l.tkK) miles. It is a vast eddy in
the atmosphere, and moves along iu that
medium very much us the eddies in a
stream of water. The air does not have an
actual circular motion at any place within
the disturbed area, but only a tendency to
Relative Coat of Gas and Electricity.
A report from the chief electrician of the
London postoHice, as to the relative cost of
gas and electricity as illumiuants, shows
that gas the equivalent of 4,000 candle
power would cost twenty-five cents, while
an arc light of the same power would be but
sixteen centR, but incandescent light to that
extent would cost fifty cents.
A Mountain of Iron.
A mountain of iron ore has just been dis
covered eight miles east of Moscow, Idaho.
According to The Railroad Record the ore
goes 67 per cent, in magnetic iron and tbe
ledge is inexhaustible. It was found only
a few feet below the surface lying beneath a
stratum of genuine fire clay.

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country than all other diseases put
together, hnd until the Inst few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many yet,rs doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science bas proven catarrh to be a con
stitutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Cilarrh
