TnK State board of live stock C immis
sioDers of Illinois bas issued and pub
liehed a bulletin containing a resume of
that portion of the testimony introduced
in the recent actinomycosis or lumpy jw
cattle esse, bearing upon tie question of
the contagiousness of the disease among
cattle, and from cattle to human beings
and the unfitness of ibo flesn of cattle af
fected with this disease for use for hu
man food. The bulletin can bj had on
application to the board.
An Important Decision.
The republican press has been abusing
Gov. Hill like a pickpocket for some
weeks past apropos of the contested
election cases in Sew York, upon which
hinged the political complexion of the
state senate. lie has been accused of
being a usurper, a tricktcr, of trying to
steal the legislature and various other
unpleasant things. It made no apparent
difference to ;hese gentlemen that the
whole matter was in the courts and iu
due time would be decided according to
the law and the facts by impartial judges
Well, the court of appeals, the court of
last resort, has just rendered its decision,
which tusthios the democrats in every
vital point. Will Gov. Hill's enemies
now retract the mtilicious and untrue
things they have been saying about hirr?
That is too much to expect.
The decision will nihke both hoi.ses o
the state legislature dtmocratic. The
chief importance of this result is that a
new apportionment bill will be passed,
acd this will undoubtedly rcFult in the
election of a democrat to succeed Sena
tor Hiscock. The state constitution re
quires tbtit the state be apportioned
ivery 5 years, vie believe Immediately
after the state census, but this plain
mandate has betn persistently defied by
the republicaLs. The present appor
tionment was made years ago, since v, btch
time the urban population bus
increased at the expense of the
country. As is well known,
the democratic strength in New York
lies in the cities and the republican in the
rural districts. In consequence of this
injustice the legislature bas been almost
jnvariably republican, eyen when the
democrats have elected their state ticket
by 40,(00 to HO.OOO plurality. Now,
however, a republican state senate ill no
longer stand in the way of justice.
For the bold stand he has taken in this
matter Gov. Hill is intit'ed to the thanks
not only of his party bat of all lovers of
The ' 'pauper labor" of Europe has been
employed by the republican president to
make a new set of dishes for the White
bouse. American dishes, made by the
protected labor of our glorious country,
is not Rood enough for the rinc s and
princesses of the house of Harrison.
Nothing less aristocratic would suit their
"rojal nibses" than the "imperial" dishes
that come from the bands of the pauper
laborers of of Limoges, France. So they
ordered them gotten up regardless of
"pauper" expense, and the hard earned
dollars paid in taxes by American sons e f
toil have been squandered to gratify the
passion for display of the present heads
of the administration. This invoice .of
new foreign dishes has arrived and the
output is thusdescribed by a correspond
ent: Two hundred and tifty pieces are com
prised in the set, and it is intended that
the service 6hall be used for the first time
at the cabinet dinner Jan. 19. Fifty-six
persona can be served with these plates at
a course dinner, the sizes beitg divided
into soup, dinner, luncheon and dessert
plates. Mrs Harrison designed the plates,
which are the handsomest ever used at
the president's table, the patern of the
two larger sizss being golden ears of tas-'
seled corn upon a background of imperial
Prussian blue which forms the rims of the
plates. Encircling the inner edge of the
rim and inclosed by a gilt band are 44
gold stars, while in the center of each
plate is the coat of arms of the United
Htates. Photographs were made of the
famous war esgle, Uncle Abe, of Wis
rousin, to furnish the pattern for the na
tional bird, benea'h whose outstretched
pinions is the motto,"E Pluribus Unum,"
in raised letters of blue. U,on the outer
half of the rim of the luncheon and des
sert plates the corn pattern is continued
in gold upon a white background while
the other half of the rim is a band ot
Prussian blue containing the stme
number of stars as are shown the larger
plates, the coat of arms being only orna
mentation iu the center. O i: g to the
fact that questions have been frequently
asked by guests at White house dinners
as to the history of some of the tahlware
used and under whoe administration j
was purchased, Mrs. Harrison hid
stamped upon the buck of etteh pi- ce ot

been thus designated, the hacks of the
pistes and dishes being merely a plain tin

THE NEST IN THE CHERRY TREE.
A Story Told by Grtmltnnmiiia to Nino
and His Sitter Bella.
"Grandmamma, please tell us a story,"
said Nino. "Iam very willing to," siiid
grandmamma, "for you have both been
very Kood." So Nine sat down, while hto
Bister Bella stood up beside him, just as
you see them in the picture; they looked
very attentive, waiting tp hear grand
mamma's story, for grandmamma knevf
80 many pretty stories! She began:
Once upon a time there was a little boy
named Rubin. One day he saw in the
garden, in the cherry tree a pretty bird's
nest; in it were six li tie birds whose little
heads were still all b tre and their lxdies
as yet covered only with ft light down.
When they saw Kolin they were afraid
and opened their liei k.s wide chirping to
their papa and mamma to come out and
protect them. Kolii:i instead of having
pity upon, them, beiran to laugh and car
ried away the poor li? tie birds.

"lie was very wicked," said Nino. "Oh,
yes," added Hella, "a hard hearted hoy.
Grandmamma eoiiti med: B it while he
was currying off the poor birds he heard h
voice which said: "Alien the month of
May comes the cherry tree in I he garden
will be covered wit h lovely white flowers.
But when the inont li of .1 tine comes t here
will be no cherries on the cherry tree."
Kohiu stopped short, very iniirh aston

"No, t here will be no cherries t here; the
cherries will have Iw-n eaten before they
were ripe by ugly worms. If Kobin had
left the little binis in their ne-t the little
birds would have become large and would
have eaten all the ugly worms., which
would thus not have een aide to devour
the cherries. Hut! noiiody now wiil hinder

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a succcss.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
atllicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges'in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
