What is this "nervous trouble" with which so
many now seem to be afflicted? -If yon will re
member a few years ago the word Malaria was
comporatively unknown to-day it is as common
as any word in the English larigusge. yet this
word covers only the meaning of another word
used by our forefathers in times past. So it is
with nervous diseases, as they and malaria are in
tended to cbver what our grandfathers called
biliousness, and all are caused by troubles that
arise from a diseased condition of the liver
which in performing its functions finding that
it cannot disposo of tho bile through the ordi
nary channel is compelled to pass it off through
the Bystem, causing nervous troubles, maria, bil
ious fever, etc. You who are suffering can well
appreciate a cure. We recommend Green's Au
gust Flower. Its cures are marvelous.

Bold byK H. Longley.-v
After a somewhat extended ram
ble over the states to the east of us,
Hon. Patrick IJgan feels that the
success of the republican national
tidket is inevitable. He has had
unusual opportunities for studying
the feelings of the Irish-American
voters, and finds that large numbers
are coming over to the support ot
Harrison. There are two reasons
for the wholesale conversion of the
Celts. The principle of protection
finds much favor among them,
partially, perhaps, because no Irish
man wishes to aid by his vote the
people who crushed out the indus
tries of the Emerald isle by adverse
legislation in the past. Again, Mr.
Egan says that the young voters of
to-day are disregarding their race
traditions. They are not willing to
continue voting" the democratic
ticket simply because the party op
posed the knownothings long before
they were born. They are tired of
the bossism that has presumed to
mark out their pa-'hs in politics, and
in the future will reserve the right
to think and act for themselves. A
little independent thinking lands
the vote in the republican party,
and enough changes of this kind
willl occur to have quite an in
fluence in the doubtful states.

TO MAKE A CHICAGO DAILY NEWS ?
You havciil ? Well, let us -give you just a glimpse into the business, perhaps it milt1
To begin with, the work . of tlte paper is divided into Seventeen Different Departments,
each wider its own responsible Superintendent. JLtt us take them in order as
they stand 071 the weekly pay-roll:
I. The Editorial Department. This includes
eilitore, city editors, telegraph editors, exchange
cauors, editorial writers, special writers, ana about
thirty reporters. Tut: Daita' News staff is
admittedly without a superior in the West, and
2. The Telegraph Room. To save 'time special wires are
run into The Daily News building, and the
paper's own operators take the messages and hand
them immediately to the telegraph editor. The
number of operators is 3
3. The Compositor's Room. When "eopv" has passed
the hands of the proper revising editor it goes to
the type-setter. There are a good many of him -in
The Daily News ofiieo on an average . . 73
4. The Linotype Room. But the compositor doesn't do
- all the type-setting. The "Linotype" machine
; "sets type" by casting a-line-of-type, on somewhat
the same principle as the type-founder casts a
single type. Fourteen of these machines are in use
in TfiE Daily News office, and the number of
persons required in this department is ... . 29
5: The Artists' and Engravers' Department. But the
metropolitan daily now gives its readers not only
reading matter, but also illustrations. By the aid
of good artists, zinc etchers and jihotography by.

the best newspaper illustrations in America. This
takes the best service of skilled workers to the
number of 7
6. The Stereotype Foundry. The matter type and pic
tures Ibeing now " locked up " in the " forms" the
work is next transferred to the foundry. A metro
politan daily no longer prints from its type. In
order to print a large edition quickly it 13 neces
sary to multiply the printing surfaces, and this is
accomplished by casting duplicate stereotyped
plates, from which, after they hare been fastened
to the presses, the printing is done. Of stereo
typers The Daily News requires 8
7. The Press Room. The Daily News uses six double
perfecting presses, capable of printing 100,000 com
plete papers per hour. To run these there are
required men to the number of. . . 26
8. The Mailing and Delivery Department. "The mail
ers" and the delivery clerks handle over a million
papers atTveek. The force numbers 25
g. The Engine Room. To supply the motive power requires
three steam boilers of 175 horse-power capacity, and
three engines with an aggregate of 270 horse-power.
All departments are lighted by the Edison incan
descent system, which here comprises three dynamo
machines and 500 lamps. The employes of this
department number 5
10. The Circulation Department. The paper is now a
manufactured article, and it is the business of this
department to develop the market for it. The
average number of workers is 16
ix. The Subscription Room. All the subscriptions from
out-of-town, whether of individual readers or whole
sale news agents, pass through this department, and
this department employs on the average ... 17
12. The Business Office The general clerical work of the
paper, such as recuivingand caring for the advertise
ments of which over fifteen hundred are received
and handled eveiy day receiving and paying out

requires a counting-room force of 27

Then there is even a larger annual expenditure for white
paper, and telegraph and cable tolls sometimes run
nearly a thousand dollars a week. Take it all
together the expenditures of The Daily News for
the year 1888 will vary very little from 900 000
The foregoing takes no account of the special correspondents at hundreds of places throughout the country of European
onients ; ot niteen nunurctt news agents throughout the Tforthwest who distribute The Daily News to i out f
; of two hundred city carriers; of forty-two wholesale city dealers with their horses and wairoiw : nf nn i,
and fifty branch advertisement offices throughout the city, all connected with the main office by telephone, nor of the about
three thousand newsboys who make a living, in whole or in part, selling The Daily News in Chicago. This is what it eots
the publisher to make a Chicago Daily News. It costs the reader to buy it one cent a day. Measured by the cost of its
production, The Daily News is worth its price, tart itt The Chicago Daily News is sold by all newsdealers, or will ba
mailed, postage paid, for.,$3.00 per year, or 25 cents per month. Address
