Or dinary Salt contains more or less lime, magnesia and other impurities which occasion stone in the bladder and other Dainful diseases. Now as Salt enters into the makeup of almost everything weeat it becomes essential tnat a percecuy pure arncie should be used. 1. M. Welch & Son have experi mented on a great many kinds of Salt, and have at last found one on which they can place their name and guarantee as a perfectly pure Salt. This Salt is put up by them under the Star Brand, (Trade Hark patented), in linen bags, at 6c, 10c and 15c per has-, and in saner boxes at 5e each. The 15c bags contain nearly a peck. It will be seen that this Salt coats no more than ordinary Salt, and after once using you will have no other. Be sure and call for ana see tnat you get me iar rjrana. rut up umy uy D. M.

The unexpected failure threw the goods on the hands of the import er, consequently they had to be sold the lot was offered to us at 10 per cent, less than import prices.

W II K ML K BEFOR9I1IIIEEDBD, Wbail affairs get too bad in thiB country and often jnst when it seems as if things were geing to "the demnition bow-wows" there is a lively protest and a torn toward the better is made. A good illustration of this is the fate of the "boodle" aldermen in New York city. Another trying evil in New York oity which is attracting attention now adays' is the , cost 'of elections, which has readied snch a point as to be startling. It is estimated that the post of electing a mayor in New York last year was $700,000. The city spent $290,000 for legal expenses, $210,000 came from assessments npon candi dates and $200,000 by assessments npon office holders and through contributions from rich men of various parties, and the money was divided among 45,000 men who "worked at the polls." Mr. Joseph B. Bishop made a strong speech the other day against the buy ing and selling of offices by the politicians of New York. He said among other things: The assessment practioe has had the most de plorable influence npon candidates for legis lative positions by calling into politics a class of men who look npon office as a business. They buy a nomination, paying five or ten times the salary, calculating npon reimburse ment and profit from their official influence and votes. The Broadway bribery scandal was the natural ontcome of this. So it is in the legislature. One senator so pursued his "business" that his constituents refused to send him back, when he coolly came ont and begged for a return on the ground that he was financially embarrassed and wished to go to the Assembly to retrieve his fortune on a salary of $1,500. The evil thus oomplained of is prevalent in other places than New York and it is high time more attention was paid .to it. Among the remedies urged by Mr. Bishop is to take away the neces ity for assessments by having the ballots printed and distributed at the city's expense. Secondly, he would have the expenditures of candidates limited by law, making obligatory a public statement of all outlays by candidates or their agents after election. Then he would have a law similar to the English law against corrupt praotiees and undue influences. In England any ten persons can have a candidate's name pnt np on the voting list for municipal office by certifying that they wish to vote for him. If any fifty voters could do that here Mr. Bishop thinks the machines would be annihilated. An attempt is to be made to get the New York legislature next winter to pass a law for the purifying of politics in New York city. There is nsed enough of it. EDITORIAL NOTES. The New York Star says it opposes the high license bill now before the New York legislature because it is "a Democrat from way back." The Star is certainly consistent. It is now estimated that the Roslindale "accident" will cost the Boston and Provi dence railroad company about a million dol lars. It would have been cheaper to have a reliable bridge, properly attended to. With Judge Deming at the head of the new conrt and Judge Pickett at the head of the City conrt, justice in this region bids fair tobe well administered. Both these judges have made good records while on the benoh. Britannia won't rule the wave as much as she did unless there is a change in her nav al affairs. The announcement is made that the great viar ship the Ajax, upon which the sum of $2,500,000 has been expended, is abso lutely unfit for eea. The Birmingham (Alabama) Chronicle says that God has spared Jefferson Davis to read the obituary notices of Greeley, Sum ner, Garrison and Beeeher, "as some com pensation for what he has suffered." Bather cold comfort, this. Governor Currier, of New Hampshire, thus closes his Fast Day proclamation: Final ly, I desire the people of this State, in their devotions and supplications, to avoid every form ef idolatry and superstition, and gratefully and reverently to recognize in ev ery act of their lives that Eternal ' Being in whom all things live and have their exist ence. The failure of a strike la a New York shoe factory is significant. The strike was origi nally ordered avowedly to force the employ ers to "recognize" an "exeontive board" not composed of their own workmenv When a renewal of the strike was ordered only about a third of the men quit work and the factory is running as nsnal, while the men at work are obviously much better off than the men on strike. Prohibition does not prohibit in. Maine. In Bangor alone there are 160 plaoes which pay the annual United States tax as retailers of liquor and three or four which pay for the privilege of selling at wholesale, and fifty more retail places within twelve miles of the city. Nearly all of these have open bars and employ from two to five persons eaeh, so that there are probably about six hundred persons directly employed ia the sale of liquor. Every hotel has an open bar and every street in the business part of the the eity has them. "The main street has eight or ten. Broad, Exchange, Central, Hammond, Harlow, and others, are filled with them, and the traffic is as open as that of the grocery or dry goods stores." The statement of Mr. Shearer of the New York sub treasury that there is not money enough in circulation for the business and personal interests of this country will not surprise those ' who can't get what money they want. Mr. Shearer says that the char acter and amonnt of the money in circula tion at present is about as follower Green backs, $318,000,000; silver certificates, $121, 000,000; gold certificates, $100,000,000; national bank notes, $300,000,000; total, $834,000,000. This is a little over $14 for each person in the United States. It is ihe smallest proportionate circulation in a nom- i ber of years. ' In 1885 there was $38 for each person, and this inoluded the amonnt in the United States treasury subject to circulation. The case against the Northfield Knife company, which is to come before Judge Shipman in the United States court next month, will test the law forbidding the im portation of foreign labor. The law prohib its the introduction of this labor under a penalty of $1,000 for each offense. It is ad mitted that the company brought over fif teen men to engage in its employ; but it was done, as is claimed, without a knowledge of the existence of the prohibitory law. More over the company brought the men to this country under one agreement, the fares were all paid at the same time, and this fact, it is urged, constitutes but one offense under this law. District Attorney Stanton has made fifteen separate informations, and the matter will be left to the conrt to determine wheth er the company should be held to pay the penalty for one offense or for fifteen separ ate offenses.

A Flea for the faithful Me a who Risk Their Lives Bally. From the Chicago Herald. An instance of the crnelty of our modern civilization and its infinitely diversified appll ances and customs is found ia the fact that the death of a railway employee, through one of the minor casualties of his calling, is no longer considered worthy mention in the news celums of a metropolitan newspaper; or, if mentioned at all, a line is generally suffi cient to chronicle the bare fact, details be ing utterly neglected. In the despatches it used to be: "By a broken rail seven freight cars were thrown off the track near this place last Bight and their contents, consisting of valuable merchandise, almost destroyed. The loss of the company will reach $15,000. Passenger trains were delayed nearly an hour. A rigid investigation will follow. One brakeman was killed." Formerly minor accidents to employees were telegraphed to city papers, but now all correspondents are instructed to omit sending intelligence concerning the eommon accidents of the rail, in which employees only suffer, unless the fatalities number more than one or seme unusual circuatstan ess or causes are present. Almost every week some railway employee loses his life or a limb in the Chicago railway yards with out any mention of the casualty being made in the city paDers. This sesms cruel, bnt the truth is that the sort of news is rarely worth printing. As the world goes these items are unimportant and newsmen neglect them. But witn passengers it is quite surer ent. The commonest accident involving the safety of a passenger or injury to His person is carefully investigated and reported. And just now the papers are filled with ar tides demanding that the death-dealing stove shall be banished, that safety gates be put up at all crossings, and that every possible precaation be taken to secure safety for the travelling pnblic and for pedestrians and street travellers who mnst cross railway tracks. Bnt not a word is heard in behalf of the employees, whom the jugger nauts of the rail are slaughtering and maiming by the thousands every year. "Only a brakeman killed." What a story the figures of a railway tell and, after all, there is nothing like cold figures to point a moral or tell a tale. In Massachusetts last year only one passenger in 7,584,258 was killed, and one in 3,166,931 injured. This ratio is not an alarming one, but when we come to employees the ratio is very differ ent. There were 274 casualties to employ ees, J8 of which were fatal. On the Fitch burg road one employee ont of every thirty one was injured. On other roads about one ia 120. Most of these casualties were in coupling or uncoupling cars. Foity-eight, or nearly one a week, were injured ia this wav on one road. One can, therefore, read ily believe that on almost any of eur larger railways of the west a man a day is tne aver age ratio of the rapacious demon of car coupling. Next come casualties to trainmen from falling from train overs one a week in the whole State of Massachusetts, and probably twlee or thrioe as many as in Illinois. Take the Chicago, Burlington & Quinsy road for a home instance, and than the Burlington there is no better managed road in the world. In a recent year this road carried in Illinois 2,770,000 passengers. Half a dozen of these were injured and none killed. Of the 1,500 engineers, firemen, brakemen, baggagemen, switchmen, and con ductors employed in Illinois more than 200 were killed or injured. In fully one fourth of the cases the demon coupling was the agent of injury or death. All along the line of even railway in the country, and particu larly iu the division station towns, where many railway employees live, will be found small armies of widows, orphans and maimed , men. .LiiASI rfcji iW,:!.-d Sii WSSf-.

Must wage slow wars and sail the bitter sea; Fierce is the conflict, loud the trumpets blow. And the waves roar and rage unceasingly. Still must we wander o'er the stormy main; 'Twixt rocks and- whirlpools a dread passage make; Still must the Sirens sing to us in vain; Still from the toils of Circe must we break.

Placer Sam's Investment. ' From the St. Paul Globe. Plaeer Sam told me of a green lad, unused to the ways of the West, who one day wan dered into Confederate Gulch and applied for work. There was no one there who want ed to hire help, and he was told to prospect. He didn't understand what the word meant, and insisted that some one should put him to work and give him an opportunity to earn his daily bread. Tiring of his persistency, one day when the lad made his usual appli cation for work with a' salary attachment, a miner picked up a stone from the ground and throwing it out upon an unbroken Bpot in the gulch, told him to get a pick and shovel and dig. The lad did as he was bid, and as he quietly kept at his work day after day and paid no particular attention to anyone, the miners, pleased at last to have gotten rid of him. studiously left him to himself. For six months he kept np his digging, and at the end of that time surprised the camp by bnying a mnle team and hiring a company of twenty-five armed men to guard the nail kegs filled to the brim with glittering gold dust tnat ne nad .taken trom tne ground on which the stone tossed by a careless hand had fallen. The kegs were loaded behind the mules, and under the eyes of the twenty-five men were carted through the mountains and across the plains to Omaha, where it was disposed of and tne handsome proceeds pocketed by the lucky lad. I asked the man what was the name of the fellow who had made ihe great strike, and with a jab at the staves of the keg with his knife, he replied: It wus me. I was considerably surprised, but not satisfied, and continuing the conversation, asked him if he had the money invested, and he said he had invested every cent. I asked him what in and he replied: "Poker." Satisfactory Collateral. From the San Francisco Wasp. The other morning as the janitor of a bank not very far from the Palace opened the door he was surprised to observe three rather tired-looking citizens seated on the stepB, the center one of whom held a sealed envel ope carefully in sight of his companions. "Want to make a deposit, gentlemen!" asked the cashier, who shortly arrived. "Step inside." "No, I want to negotiate a loan," said the man with the envelope, "and there ain't a minute to lose. I want five thousand dol lars quicker'n Hades can scorch a feather." "What collaterals have you Govern ment!" inqnired the bank official. "Government nolhin'. I've got some thing that- beats--fo-per-cents. all "hollow. You see I've been sitting in a poker game across the street, and there's over four thou sand dollars in the pot. There are three or four pretty strong hands ont, and as I've ev ery cent in the center the boys have given me thirty minutes to raise a stake on my hand. It's in this envelope. Jnst look at it, but don't give it away to these gentle men. They're in the game and came along to see I don't monkey with the cards." "But, my dear sir," said the cashier, who had quietly opened the envelope and found it to contain four kings and an ace, "this is entirely irregular we don't lend money on cards." "Bnt you ain't going to see me raised out on a hand like that!" whispered the poker ist. "These fellows think I'm bluffing, and I ean just clean out the whole gang. Yon see we ain't playing flushes, so I've got 'em right in the door." "Can't help it, sir. Never heard of such a thing," said the cashier, and the disap pointed applicant and friends drifted sadly out. On the corner they met the bank's president, who was himself just from a qniet little all-night game at the Union. They explained the case again, and the next mo ment the superior officer darted into the bank, seized a bag of twenties and followed the trio.

"Why, I thought you nad more business snap, sir, Ever play poker!" "No, sir." "Ah! thought not thought not.

WON A FORTUNE. Buying Throe Lottery Tickets and Winning Two Prlxes. From the Auburn (N. Y.) Advertiser, March 11. Joseph Strang, a former Aubnrnian, who has been living at Smith Falls, Ontario, is stopping with his wife at the Arbor Hotel on South street. Mr. Strang is the lucky man who drew one-tenth part of the first capital prize of one hundred and fifty thou sand dollars in the Louisiana State lottery at its last month's drawing. To an Adverti ser reporter Mr. Strang said that he sent money from Smith Falls by express to M. A. Dauphin at New Orleans for three tickets, and received them in dne time. For the one-tenth ticket No. 73,987 he paid one dol lar. About six days after the drawing he reaeived a circular , by which he learned that he had drawn $15,000 of the capital prize and also ten dollars of an approxima tion prize by another ticket, thus drawing two prizes with three tickets. Mr. Strang had also drawn several prizes previously, but not very large ones. Mr. Strang came to Auburn and ordered the money sent from New Orleans by ex press to the banking house of William H. Seward & Co. The total sum of fifteen thousand dollars was forwarded in gold, and Mr. Strang now has a certificate of deposit from that bank for the amount named. There were no deductions for commissions or any other charge except the express tariff of seventy-one dollars. Mr. Strang is a machinist by trade and has been in comfortable circumstances, but never had so large a sum of money before. He and his wife will reside in this city. They have no children. A Nloe tittle Present for a Frlond. From the Liverpool Post. Some time ago a friend of mine interested in zoology received one day a box from New Mexico without any mark upon it as to what it contained. He instructed his housekeeper to open it on finding it in his hall and went up stairs. Presently he was aroused by a considerable outery, and found that the box contained a creature about a yard long, not unlike a crocodile. It was really a lisard, and my friend immediately packed it off to the Zoological Gardens, with a letter to the curator, presenting it to the collection. Next day, to his astonishment, he received a letter from the curator saying: "Pray, next time you send ns an animal for the col lection warn us of its character, for this liz ard you sent ns is a poisonous one. The moment it was taken out of its box it bit a rabbit, and the animal almost immediately died. As we took it out of the box without any hesitation, this might just as well have happened to the person who unpacked the monster." ... The existence of this poisonous lizard was unknown to the recipient, and was I believe not known at the Zoological Gardens. My friend wrote ont to his correspondent in New Mexico and found that he too was unaware of the poisonous nature of the animal, and had only sent it on account of its rarity; "but," said the New Mexican, with charm ing frankness in writing, "now you mention it, I do remember that one of these lizards bit a man, and certainly that man died." grg (goods.
