Peoria, Jan. 13 Upon airiving tere
this noon I found a busy lot of good
looking men among tbe supervisors
and commissioners of the various
counties represented here. They
had received resolutions which were re
ferred to the proper committers, and
listened to an excellent oeech by Mr
Converse, of Sagamon, th s forenoon,
and adjourned to meet at the poor farm
which is about eight m lea from the city,
the Iowa tentral railroad running with
in 15 rods of the almshouse. We were
very generously given a special train free
of charge, and put in about two hours
looking tbro; fjh the various apartment
wtRcn are wcli kept. We found there
were 14Q inmates among them
about 60 incurable it. s-.no w hich caused
the main conversation to drift toward the
idea of the state takine cire of the incur
ables. We saw one man locked in a cell
bopkssly insane, who wvis formerly a
business man of Peoria, worth at one
time 540,00(1, and had served as supetv
sor of this county. He is quite an orator
and undoubtedly has many limes charmed
the county board with his eloquence.
The counts farm contains 320 acres, NO
of which the county board recently pur
chased at a cost of $90 per acre.
Coming in the members on tbe train
were polled and found there were 60 dem
ocrats and 33 republicans. Their presi
dential preferences were: Blaine 21, Har
rison 0, Cleveland 29, Palmsr 19. Hill 5.
Russell 1, Boies 2
There was considerable guying on both
side". Some of our republican friends
jroclnkned the idea that as Peoria was
largely interested in the distillery busi
ness, the cou-ty boards did ri:ht in
choosing their delegates mostly from the
We wire will received ar.d are bring

I am quit certain t liar if today France
and Germany were suddenly and miracu
lously to interchange tongm-s, the two na
tions would sliorily undergo some unlooked
for alterations. I have known several
people whose superficial char.Tcteristies
were quite different, according as they
spoke French or Kuclisli, nitlioutrli they
were as fluent in the one as in the other. I
know of one woman who is common and
ill bred as an Englishwoman, but who,
when she speaks French, which she knows
well, is apparently well mannered and
Nor, as we reflect, does this seem alto
gether strange when we consider how
much national character has to do with the
evolution of lansnage, and bow impossible
exact translation is. 1 have heard a man
say that to read or speak French made hiin

Teach the seat of tbe disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hairs Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
tbi9 country for years; and ia a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect'eombina
