Successful Treatment of Cancer
The celebrated Dr. Couden, formerly of
Louisville, Kentucky, who is now perma
nently located in this city, has had greater
success in the treatment of this disease than
anv physician in the United States. We are
both surprised and pleased to learn that he
has relieved Governor Geo. S. Houston, of
Alabama, of a very uelv cancer ot the face,
Mr. J. R. Trotter, a well-known planter of
Prospect. Tennessee, was cured of a most
villainous cancer in 1870, and in 1871 Mr,
Jas. Motfitt. a merchant of Troy, in this State,
was cured of a troublesome cancer. We ear
nestly advise every one interested to send for
one of h'.s journals, giving mode of treatment
and a large list of persons cured from one to
ten years standing. The doctor is at the head
of his profession. He received one of tli
larcost ff!fi pver naid to a Dhvsician in Ken
tucky, being five thousand dollars, for his ser
vices in one instance. We do not hesitate to
recommend him in the highest terms. Call

To You, My Love.
He sat in his cheerless chamber
A bachelor of thirty-three;
A more dejected subject
Ho mortal ever did see.
The room was dusty and dirty,
JSo hre burned in the grate;
In short, such a scene of disorder
As falls to a bachelor's fate.
A gloom on his forehead gathered,
He trowned with portentous foreboding,
When he found that he had no needle
To mend his rebellious clothing.
"What am I to do." he uttered.
"Who'll help me in this time of need?
Who'll pnll me out of this fearful fix,
And prove a friend indeed?"

New York Times, December 4th: De
tected and defeated in their attempt by ques
tionable means to regain a waning popu
larity, secured by fraudulent and impudent
claims, founded upon fictitious victories, some
Rip Van Winkles in the piano trade have
inst woke up to learn of the Centennial, which
has passed into oblivion over a year ago.
And as the award decreed to A. Weber, of
JNew York, has been and is now considered
in its description of the peculiar merits of the
Weber Pianos (the only thing the Centennial
commission could do), superior to all others
because of their sympathetic richness and
purity of tone, combined irith treat vower.
several ocean voyages are made, thousands of
miles traveled, and many months of corre
spondence ensues after the close of the Cen
tennial, mind you by a defeated competitor.
What for? asks the innocent reader. Was
it to learn how to make a piano as good as
weoerr on, dear; no! no! no!
All this immense expense, time and labor,
running over one year after the awards were
given, was to see if it was possible to make
their award equal to Weber, or to try and
find some flaw in the award of this terriie
H'eber, who quietly attends to his legitimate
business, and makes, as is admitted by the
commission and by musicians and experts,
tne oest piano in America, and what is bet
ter still, sells tt at tne most reasonable price
Life is too short to follow these piano cmar-
rels, which have actually become a nuisance.
but I trust the reader will bear with me while
I give the facts regarding the Centennial.
The United States government, by virtue of
a law ot congress passed March 3, 1871, cre
ated the United states Centennial commis
sion, consisting of one delegate from each
State and one from each Territory. In this
commission rested the sole power to make
the laws for the Centennial and give reports
and awards. The Centennial commission
was sovereign, and from it no appeal, and
the Centennial commission alone could give
tne exniDitor an ojjicxai report and decree an
By their direction, Director-General A. T.
Goshorn issued "Direction for a System of
article 1. Awards shall be based upon
written reports, etc.
II. Two hundred judges shall be appointed
to make reports, one-ttaif citizens of the
United States and one-half foreigners. The
judges from the United States shall be ap
pointed by tne Centennial commission.
III. Relates to compensation.
IV. Reports and awards shall be based
upon merit, etc.
V. (Xote this.) Each report will be deliv
ered to the Centennial commission as soon
as completed for final award and publico
VI. Awards will be finally decreed by
the United States Centennial commis
sion, in compliance with the act of congress,
VII. Each exhibitor will have the right to
reproduce and publish the report
awarded to him, but the United States
Centennial commission reserves the right
to publish and dispose of all reports in the
manner it thinks best tor public information.
and also to embody and distribute the reports
as records ot the exhibition.
Certainly this language seems plain enough,
and strong as Holy Writ.
It proves, if anything can prove, that the
right to give a report rested solely with tha
United btates Centennial commission, that
all else except the official report given by the
United btates Centennial commission is sim
ply imposition and fraud.
Most of the examiners or assistants, termed
judges, handed their reports to the Centen

were discharged, and their functions having
thus ended, went to their respective homes.
The executive council of the United States
commission examined each report, passed it.
and handed it for final action to the full
board ot tne centennial commission, who
alone had the right to announce the official
report and make an award.
The awards were publicly proclaimed
November 10, 1876, and soon thereafter the
official reports sent to the different exhibitors
Tne one sent to A. Weber, of New York, is
as loliows:
The United States Centennial Commission announce
the following report as the basis of an award to
Albkkt Webek, Isew York, for grand, square and
upngui pianos; Jjlgjjj'r

The public are most respectfully and cor
dially invited to see this wonderful official
award, framed, in the Weber ware-rooms,
I ltth avenue, corner bixteenth street.
If it has caused some of my would-be
competitors in abject terror to travel thou
sands of miles, to rush twice across the At
lantic in their despair and dread of the loss
of prestige and doom which awaits them.
I am extremely sorry for them. It is always
sad to see the decline ot a once great house.
If disappointed at their own award, why not
apply to the United states Centennial com
mission like honorable men, and ask for
redress there. This was the only proper
place to apply, instead of running over the
world in a sneaking and humiliating manner,
begging from pritate individuals for help
against this dreadful Weber.
I went to the Centennial relying on the
merits of my instruments, and so far the
Weber piano lias found
no rival,
because of its "sympathetic, pure and rich
tone, combined with greatest power.
What passed between some of my terrified
competitors betore, or during the exhibition,
or since then, don't know nor care. I enly
came in contact with two or three ot the
jurors, lhe rest 1. did not know by name
even nave never spoken to them betore,
during or since the exhibition. As an hon
est exhibitor, l could not. An honest man
looks for justice to the verdict of the court:
a dishonest one sneaks among the jurors, and
to acknowledge having done so publicly, a
man would generally be deemed an trfiof. be
sides being a knave.
1 hare always found that the man who at
tends to his own legitimate business surely
succeeds, while the one wlw watches his neigh
bor s business, and tries to tnure him, inva
riably fails. I presume it is because I have
attended only to my own business, and con
stantly added improvements, that the sales of
the Weber pianos are nearly double those of
1S7S. hverii one who wants a real oood
piano naturally comes to If tber.
It. however, a lew private individuals, pro
fessors of universities and colleges, chemists.
astronomers and engineers of unquestioned
renown in their own sphere, desire to sign a
card ot condolence in very bad English (1
wonder who wrote it!) lor a deteated piano-
maker, a year after the issue has passed, it
is, perhaps best to throw the mantle ot char
itii over it.
lhe Centennial is dead! Why not rest in
peace? This is a country of life issues, and
New York is especially a city of progress and
enterprise; hence, the heathen Chinee, so
childlike and bland, who, in ways that are
dark, attempts to play his tricks a year after
the curtain has rung down, and the players
have departed, becomes an object of pity and
contempt, and a fit companion for the fossile

To the Honorable John B. F'llppln:
Dear Sir We, the undersigned, a com
mittee appointed by citizens of Memphis, ir
respective of political party, moved by the
important and critical attitude our municipal
attairs have assumed, ami assembled to
gether to carefully consider present and ap
proaching difficulties that seem to threaten
our welfare as a people, to tender to you a
call made upon you by unanimous vote, to
announce yourself as u candidate for the
mayoralty of Memphis, not as the
nominee of any convention, but as
the Citizens' candidate (he can
didate oi Democrats because we
want honesty, capacity and reformation
in the management of our city ttfairs car
dinal virtues of Democracy, which your past
administration has so well exemplified, and
because as true and fervent Democrats as ever
cned for liberty and reform, join the call: as
the candidate of workingmen, because, of all
men, the workingmen of our city must
have good government and a re
moval of those obstacles to prosperity
which have already begun to disap
pear under your efficient management;
as the candidate of the poor and the rich, of
the white and the black, of all sorts and con
ditions of men, because we have seen in your
official career a just regard for the rights of
all men We earnestly and deeply feel the
importance of this request. Many of us,
earnest partisans, appreciate every necessity
for party union and a strict regard for party
organization, but when by stratagem or un
due advantage the powerful machinery of
party is placed in the hands of dangerous
or careless men, and our local affairs
become the prey of designing leaders or the
toy of thoughtless followers, we believe that
the political machine should be left to those
who usurp its control, and that the people
should arise and resent the usurpation. To
us the signs of the times point to great
danger. We look back upon the past and
see how that, by incompetency, knavery, and
a harmless (?) speculation in our city's finan
cial concerns, a debt of millions of dollars has
been heaped upon us. Memphis has for ten
years been like an orphan ward in the
hands of a careless or an unprincipled
guardian. Her estate has ever been sacri
ficed and plundered by the incapacity of the
guardians of her welfare, or their cupidity
and overweening desire for private gain out
of the public purse. All this we can see un
til the beginning of your honorable term of
office now about to close. We desire to see
the permanent correction of all these evils,
and to have the reformation inaugurated
by you to go on to completion, and
that we should take no step backward, at a
time when we can see the dawn of prosperity
to our city and the whole country. We ten
der you the warm support of every good cit
izen who has at heart the welfare of our city,
and who can lay aside his desire for private
profit, to consider the public weal. Solicit
ing your early response, we are, dear sir,
your obedient servants. By order of the
w. N. brown, Ch'n.
d. t. porter,
s. b. clarke,
a. c. treadwell,
w. w. goodwin,
We also hand you a similar request made
outside of the meeting aforesaid by men in
hearty sympathy, as we believe, with the
sentiments above aforesaid.
A Call on J. K. Plippin,
Memphis, November 2r), 1877.
The undersigned, citizens of Memphis,
respectfully call upon Hon. J. R. Flippin to
announce himself as a candidate for re-election
as mayor of the city for the approaching
term. Without disparaging, in any degree,
the qualifications of other well-known citi
zens, who have been named for the office, we
deem it of the highest importance to the true
interests of the city that Mayor Flippin
should be re-elected.
