Wells ran yes erdaj's affair single-
handed. There is no occasion to dwell
upon tbe results.
After yesterday's fizzle the late Mr.
Wells ought to move back to Milan.
That town is evidently about his size.
While Hawaii will make no exhibit at
the World's fair the government has up
propriated $12,000 to send a Hawaiian
Little Bobby had his way with the
governor, who indiscreetly began his
reference to the school subject by saying.
"I have been requested to speak on the
school question." He nvght have con
tinued, "my old friend, Bennett, desires
me to say, et3."
Ex -Boss Wells does not rate high as
a prognosticator of crowds after yester
day's affair, more particularly not among
the churches. The estimate ol the city
restaurants of the ti boss and his party
is not many shades higher tbtn that of
the church societies.
The appearance of the mayor and
postmaster of the city in oil- cloth suits
and carrying torches for purely political
effect was no particular credit to the city
or tbe party, but tteir action is in keep
ing with tbe state officials who visited
Rock Island, reglectiDg their official du
ties in hope6 of making votes.
The Union would have done the re-
publican party more good had it told tbe
truth about yesterday's Fiferday demon
stration, instead of speaking of it as
"eclipsing the glories of the big meeting
of 18S8." That it will "long be memor
able to the republicans," as tbe Union
asserts, there is no reason to dispute, but
the morning paper would have held faith
with an observing public rtuch better
had it stated the facts as to the extent of
the meeting, and then attempted an ex
planation of the absence of the farmers
by an assertion that they were busy
threshing pumpkins, or something of that

There ha9 never been such a shameful
waste of the people's money by the meu
who have taken solemn oatbs to perform
St. Louis Republic.
In 1872 Whitelaw Reh!, as the
editor of the New York TribuDe,
made a general attack, not only
oaly on republican candidate?, but on
their supporters. He published this as
his opinion of the republ can nominee for
General Grant nevtr was a republican .
The policy of his adherents tends to tbe
destruction of republicanism. It js at
variance with every point of the republi
can creed. It is the "one man" policy,
which seeks to perpetuate power by the
forcible control of unwilling communi
ties, by proscriptions, by fraud, by set
ting brother against brottur. am pro
longing the suffer? ngs and animosities of
a cruel war. Tribune. October 25. 1S72
General Grant cares very little for
either the shows or the responsibilities of
power. lie lik;-s the presidency because,
as he administers it, it is an easy, pleas
ant place, with plenty of flattery of a
course, congenial kind, salary and per
quisites enough for comfortable living,
and frequent occasions to provide for his
family and friends de has very little
respect for the offl'e beyond this. Tri
bur.e, October 16. 1872.
If he thought thus of Grant, his view
of Blaine was even less complimentary,
as the following attests:
Mr. Blaine repeated last iiight for
about the thirtieth time his old jokes
from Dundreary, and his fld t'efense on
tne subjsct of the Kansas Pacifinrailroad.
Since tne speaker is not satisfied to let
hie record rest, we propose to restate its
admitted essential p jints.
Under ciraums'ances which we will
not recite, he left Pennsylvania for
Maine. He had taught school and was
poor. He next edited a local Daper. and
was still poor. He rext went to tbe
Maine legislature, where he certainly had
small chance to make money. He next
went to congress, on a salary at firs'', we
believe, of 53 000 a year. He has been
in congress ever since, having no owjpa-
tion and apparently living up to his sal
ary, and he is now reputei, at borne, a
rich man Tribune, October 31, 1872.
When Reid deserted Blaine this year
there were some who wondered at it, but
they bad forgottr n that as long as 20
years ago he did not find it inconsistent
with his own political purposes to accu-e
Blaine of getting rich corruptly.

Things Worth Remembering.
When you feel a kind of goneness about
the stomach it is a sign that your food
does tiot s-it well, an 1 that you are about
to have a fit of indigestion.
When you begin to feel nervous and
are tillable to sit still comforably; when
vour clothes suddenly Fcem to lose their
fit and become too tight in p aces, the fit
of indigestion is surely upon you.
When this fit of indigestion is repeated
from day ii day it finally resolves itself
Remember that three to 10 of Bran
dreth's Pills will cure the worst case of
indigestion or dyspepsia, or both, and
that a repular course of them, say two
every night for a week or 10 days, will
act as a preventive of either complaint.

Medical Knowledge Applied.
Disease is a weakness or loss of vital
force in some part of the body.
The success of the treatment is due to
the fact that tbe physician applies his
knowledge in bis practice and employs
such remedies only as stn ngthes the
body in all its parts and at tbe same time
fortifies and conserves tbe vital forces.
In disease some part of the body is not
performing its work.
In catarrh the physicians of the ficott
Medical institute find a fault of the mu
cous membranes of the nose, and at the
same time a fault of some other part of
the body. These associated c mplicate
In order to cure, the physicians of the
Scott Medical Institute apply such treat
ment to the nose as tends to restore the
parts to a normal condition, and at the
same time they give such remedies as
will correct the other accompanying
Tbey do this by regu'ar medical treat
ment. They have no specifics, no elec
