Tf the Democratic members of f'on
gres elect have a virlue .superior to
tliut possessed by their Republican
brethren, they now have a most ex
cellent chance to demonstrate the
fact. Under the present law mem
bers elect are allowed to draw their
salary by fhe month, from the fth of
next March, thus giving each mem
ber & monthly salary of something
over four hundred dollars, for nine
months before rendering any servi
ces. We venture the assertion that
there in not a half doxeii of till the
blatant reformers who will* not draw
and pocket this forward pay, and un
less the llejxndicans repeal the law
at tlw conning session, we prcdlct
that i-t will stand through the Demo
cratic reign. We tnist, however,
that the liepublimns will not hesi
tate to repeal the law and make the
salary payable after the service has
iieen rendeped. This is Ihe way the
great mass of persons, wh» work for
wages, receive their pay, and there
is no good reason why the public ser
vants of thes4» people, who are paid
from the people's purse, should inski*
a law for their own special benefit.
Tho forward pay feature of this. Hila
ry Jaw is but little h*ss otynoxioiis

a man may draw pay for services
which lie nnry newr render. Let the
Republican Congress, which passed
the law, repeal K. This action Is de
manded by the people, and unlesM It
is repealed by Ihe present ('onirresK,

Prof. Wilder, of Cornell Univer
sity, gives these short rules for action
in csso of accident: "For dust in the
eyes, avoid rubbing, dash water into
them remove cinders aud, etc.,
with the round point of a lead pencil.
Remove insects from tiie ear by
tepid water never put a hard instru
ment into the ear. If an artery is
cut, eouiprese above ihe wound if a
vein fs eut cotttpress below. If
choked, get upon all fours, and
cough. For light burns, dip the part
in cold water if the skin is destroy
ed, cover with varnish. Smother
a tire with carnets, etc. water will
often spread burning oil, and in
crease the danger. Ilefore passing
through smoke, take a full breath,
and then stoop low, but if carbon is
suspected, walk erect. Suck poison
wounds, unless your mouth is sorr».
Knlarge the wound, or better, cut
out the part without delay. Hold
the wounded part ns long as can bo
borne to a hot coal or end of a cigar.
Incase of poisoning, excite vomiting
by tickling tho throat, or by water
and mustard. For acid poisons, givo
acids in case of opium poisoning,
give strong coffee and keep moving.
If in water, float on the back, with
the nose and mouth projecting. For
apoplexy raise the head and body
for fainting, lay the person flat.'*
