Invitations have been issued bv the
Society of Tammany or Columbian
Onli-r of the Citv of New York to
attend the 117th celebration of the
Fourth of July. The invitation says:
'This omer. organized in the same
year that witnessed the adoption of
our present federal constitution, has
participated in all the great events
that have marked the historv of our
country for more than Ki years, and

(ioVEKNouMcKixLEV. in hi s speech
accepting his parly's renomination
attributed all the present financial
ills t; the Cleveland administration.
The Rochester, N. Y.. Herald, one of
the ablest republican papers in the
east, scouts this idea. In a carefully
written review of the situation this
republican paper says:
One of the meanest kinds of politi
cal falsification is to charge the dem
ocratic administration with responsi
bility for the present unsatisfactory
condition of the country's finances.
Etch the same organs making this
senseless accusation admit that the
trouble largely is due to two causes
namely, the Sherman silver pur
chase bill and the long continued
heavy exports of gold. Now as to
the Sherman bill, the Cleveland ad
ministration manifestedly carnot be
held accountable for that, because
the measure was passed by a congress
republican in both branches and
signed by President Harrison. And
how about the gold exports?
Touching this important subject
the New York World presents some
timely and enlightening figures.
During President Cleveland's lirst
term our net gain in gold exports
was :l. 772. ()(. During President
Harrison's administration' the net
loss of gold to this country by export
was f I22,('24.if0. The Harrison ad
ministration received from the
Cleveland administration ;7,7 .472
in free gold, or that amount above
the SjlO'UM'UMKi reserve. Last March
all it turned over to the second
Cleveland administration was $'.7,
00t in gold, anil that and more had
been borrowed by Secretary Foster
In view of these undisputed facts,
it is reckless folly to try to fasten uj
on the Cleveland administration re
sponsibility for the events and con
ditions with which-it has no more to
do than Pontius Pilate.
Gov. Altgeld has very wisely ve
toed the bill appropriating $120,000
to enlarge the southern hospital for
the insane and a like sum for the en
largement of the northern hospital.
The governor files quite a lengthy
veto message in which he gives as
his reason for withholding his signal
ture, that the need is one for more
hospitals and not larger ones. There
are now in the northern hospitals
1,100 patients, in the southern 900,
in the central over 1,200, and in the
eastern over 2,100, and yet only
about two-thirds of the insane of the
state are provided for by the state,
the remainder of them being in coun
ty poorhouses or otherwise cared
Frequent efforts have, been made
to found an asylum in the western
part of the state, but they have al
ways been defeated by representa
tives from the localities where the
existing institutions are situated,
who are always laboring to secure an
enlargement of their institutions.
The governor points out the fact
that experts have agreed that 50 is
as great a number of patients as
should be permitted to be collected
at one place, and that it is impossi
ble where such large numbers of un
fortunates are herded together for
each to receive proper treatment and
attention. He also calls atteiftion to
he economic feature of the matter
by saying that it would be a poor
economy which would defeat the ob
ject for which the institution was
formed, and also that these institu
tions having become unwieldy from
their size, cannot properly be superin
tended by one man, and that thus
great waste is occasioned.
The bill making appropriations for
the central and northern hospitals
for the insane was vetoed for the
same reason. The appropriation in
this bill is $70,000'.
The new anil much needed hospi
tal will probably be built now by or
der of the next legislature.

Through Childhood's Eja
I wonder if we wouldn't like to go back
again and see how it feels to be 5 years
old! To feel the dance in oar feet and the
morning in our faces; to look at the big
world again through baby eyes! Some of
us have forgotten all about it and are gold
plated so heavily that our souls can't get
out to get a breath of air. But some of us
We remember how we looked out of life's
east windows and saw the dawn angels pull
back the curtains of pink and gold to wake
np the sun. We listened wide eyxl and
wondering when the brook told us about
the water sprites that emptied their pitchers
away up on the hillside. Why, we knew
all that the birds said to each other then.
Plow is it we cannot understand now? Wa
knew just as well when Mrs. liobin went
down into the garden to do some shopping
and left her husbjuid to keep house, because
we heard him scolding about it all to him
self up in the pear tree.
And there used to be fairies then. Y hv,
once I knew where fairvland was! It was
in a comer of the old rail fence- An apple
tree stretched its long, knotted amis over
it; the gra-ss stood r.bout with its long, deli
cate ears pricked up to listen.
There were mar.y little lowers in fairv-
land, winding walks and groves of cedar
and evergreen tvis, bits of flower leds
and choice clumps ti moss. In tho mitba
was a lovely lake, and only the grownup
peoplo imagined it to be a piecu of looking
glass. Thut, was because tliev couldn't see.
And on moonlight nights the fairies camp.

Prospect, O.,. March 19.
For two years I had been more or less
afflicted with headaches and had failed
to find eny relief. I was recommended
to use Kickapoo Indian Sagwa during
my last attack and did so. My head
ache stopped, and I have had no returns
ot it since. My headaches came from a
liver and stomach trouble, and the
Bagwa made its curative effects felt at
once. I cheerfully recommend Kick
apoo Indian Sagwa to all who may ba
afflicted, believing it to be the greatest
blessing of the human race.
