Selene) for the Million,
IX-The Sun'
To the Editors of the Appeal :
One would suppose that the sun is so
large and comparatively near to ns, as
tronomers, with their enormous telescopes,
would be able to tell us all about him. In
reality we know but little. Let anyone
go into a rolling-mill or foundry and ask
the man in charge to lift op the door of
the furnace, wherein is several tons of mol
ten iron seething and flowing, and then
let the observer tell what he has discov
ered. There are certain facts we know
about tho nnn : That he ! about 95,000,
000 miles distant; that he is aoout 800,
000 miles in diameter ; that he revolves on
his axis in about twenty-five days, and
that he is a furiously hot ball heated up
to a degree of which we on earth have
but little conception. Tbe fiercest heat
that we can produce by chemical means
will just an fiice to vaporize most of the
substances within our reach, and
that in very small quantities. The
heat of the Bun is so great that
if our globe should be dropped upon
it with all its metals and rocks,
it would instantly re turned into gas and
be no more known as a solid body. Our
largest telescopes show but an immense
ball of fire, around which in every direc
tion furious gaseous flames, white hot and
composed chiefly of the vapors of metals,
flush out hundreds of miles above the
general surface. One may ask if these
flames rise so high wby do we cot see
them, and why does the edge of the sun
always seem so sharply defined T It must
be remembered that 200 miles is leBS than
one-four-thousandth of the diameter of the
aun less in proportion than the minute
granulations on the surface of an egg-shell
to the egg itself. The constituents of these
gaseous flames are ascertained by what is
called spectrum analysis a process en
tirely too abstruse to be more than al
luded to here, only that in those flames
are it any of the substances well known
upon the earth, while some of them
are unknown to us. It may be of interest
to say that by means of the spectrum an
expert can stand before the furnace door,
above mentioned, and tell what metal or
metals are fused in the mass before him.
There ia scarcely a day passes) but that
there appears on the surface of the sun
irregnlariy-shaped spots, ranging from a
few hundred miles to over 50,000 miles in
diameter. The large ones can be seen
through any ordinary opera-glass, by pro
tecting the eye with a bit of dark-colored
glass. If, at the moment when the fur
nace door was opened, one should chuck
in a cannon ball, for a little while it
would appear on the surface of the molten
mass, as a spot on tbe sun. Astronomers
suggest that these black spots are open
ings torn by solar storms through the fiery
crust or atmosphere of the sun, and that
through the openings the dark body of
the sun is seen ; but when the photometer,
or light-measuring instrument, xras
brought to bear, the black spots were found
to be only relatively black, and that they
really thine with a brilliancy greater than
any light we can produce. These spots
srnanil am) ulnto tin with a rapidity which i
gives us some i'lea oi tne lernoie iium
cane on the surface of the sun. Our at
mosphere inovina on tho suriace oi tne
earth at the rate of 100 miles in an uour
is a fearful tornado, but conceive ol a cy
clone of white hot gas, the vapors ol met
als and minerals, living alonjr. at the rate
of H)00 miles an hour ! Sun spots gener
ally last lonj? enough to eunole ns to cal
culate bv their motions the time of revolu
tion of the sun. We observe a spot on the
eastern edje of the body, and day afier
day it moves a ross its face nntil after
about twelve and a half days after its ap
pearance it disappears behind tne western
edge, to reappear twelve days later, nnless
it haf in the meantime closed up. With a
telescope a sun spot appears like a spot of
tar dropped on a sneet oi wnne paper,
around w hich is a lighter mark made by
the liquid substance which exudes from
the tar ; or you may represent one by
makinir an irregularly shaped spot of ink
on tne paper, ana wnen ary, Biiaumg it
all around with a lead pencil. The black
portion is called the nucleus, or umora,
the shaded nnrtion the oenutnbra. Tbe
peumhra is supposed to be the sides of a
hery pit, ol which the nucleus is tne oot
torn. Around the outer edge of the pen'
umbra fiery storms rase furiously, often
dashing out and forming a bridge across
acrcES the pit. As n any as twenty or thirty
soots are sometimes seen at once. At the
time x write mere is a large spui wuicu
appeared on the eastern edge four days
ago. This spot is at least 40,000 miles in di
ameter. and the Denumbra is about 10,000
across. At the same time near the center
of the sun's disc there is a group of about
fifteen spots, mostly small, one of them
about 10,000 miles in diameter; large,
enough to drop tbe earth into it without
touching the sides. There are certain tacts
about the sun whi. h we know without
the use of telescopes. We need neither
instruments nor logarithmsto tell us that
the sun is the cause and maintenance of
light and life on earth. With constancy
of liirht and heat the world goes on its
course with the varying seasons, with days
lor labor and nights lor repose, w e Know
that things are now as they were 6000
years ago, and ordinarily tnere is. no per
ceptible reason why they may net con
tinue the same forever; yet there is no
lact more certain than that as surely as a
white ball of molten iron is taken from the
furnace and exposed so that it may radi
ate its heat will in time become cold
and dim : so in time will our glorious orb
of day grow pale and cold and die. As
one may calculate from the degree to
which the iron bail had been heated and
its volume, how long it will be before it is
reduced to tbe surrounding tempera
ture, so approximately calculation
may be made as to tne time our
sun may last. There is no need for
alarm, for it is absolutely certain that
millions of years must elapse before the
light and heat of our great luminary will
beinn DerceDtiblv to pale its nres. count
less generations will live after us, and yet
the sun will continue his unabated light
and beat. But the day will come when
he will be but a dead, black cinder, still
maintaining bis power of attraction, regu
lating the movements oi nis lauuy oi
nlanets. ail of which will have preceded
him to death bv icons of ages. Lie will

Fellow-Democrata :
The hour of battle is upon you, and the
hordes of the enemy in solid Tanks are
eager for the fray. Inspired by that iren
sied fanaticism begotten of dense ignor
ance and gross greed for plunder, these
miserable communist3 hope to elect their
shoe sjsol tioh ot and thrjfl forro npon Sholby
county a lot of officials not only wholly
and totally unqualified, but whose incen
diary canvass and past reputations smack
not of even ordinary integrity. These
men would array the blacks against
the whites, elevate ignorance above
intelligence, and overwhelm the high
moral sentiment of your community
with vicious practices I This calamity
they hope to fix upon you by taking ad
vantage of that apathy existing on your
part, growing out of an undue over
confidence. Democrats, beware 1 Here
tofore, when you were absolutely certain
of victory, you have ever been in greatest
danger of dejeat, and in such cases have
generally sustained it. It rests in your
power to avert this threatened evil, but
with you alone. The Democratic
Executive Board have completed their
organization, and have brought on the
engagement. You, tbe grand army of the
party, must fight and win the victory.
But remember you cannot conquer alone. -I
l ou must enlist in your cause all honest
Republicans and fair-minded Independ
ents, who desire a continuation of an hon
est, economical and faithful administration
of your local affairs. March to the polls
in solid column, irrespective of past party
af Wat-ions ; do your, duty when you get
there, and remain until your whole duty
is done and victory perch sa once again on
the people's banner.
Let all hands suspend business for one
short day, and put in seven hours in that
too often thankless task of "saving tbe
country," and the good work is. assured.
Thia done, and when the polls shall have
closed and the night shall have come on,
there will be no darkness upon you, but
rather shall yeur homeward path be light
ed u p by the cheering reflection of a pub ic
duty preformed, a stinging rebuke admin
istered and a decisive victory won.

Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little sufferer at
once ; it produces natural, quiet sleep by
relieving the child from pain, and the lit

It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is
the best known remedy for diarrhoea,
whether arising from teething or other
causes. Twentv-nveoants a bottle.

a w nole, there is an improvement to re
noted in the growing cotton crop. This
is particularly noticeable in Arkansas and
Tennessee. In these two btates the weatn
has been most seasonable, and the
plant, although somewhat smaller and
later than usual, is healthy and growing
ranidlv. In Alabama and Mississippi too
much wet weather has prevailed, and crops
in those two sections are still from two to
four weeks late. Disastrous rains are re
ported from several countie in Northern
and Eastern Mississippi, which overflowed
the bottom lands and did serious damage
to both cotton and corn. It also caused
the abandonment of some lands in both
those States which, owing to the continued
wet weather, it was impossible to cultivate.
The critical period has now been reached,
and it is safe to predict that with favorable
seasons from now on the yield in this dis
trict will exceed tnat ot last year. An
early frost would, however, curtail the
yield materially. The corn crop promises
well, and there is no doubt a full supply
will be made more than will be necessary
lor Home consumption.

The friends of John T. Moss, the candi

Criminal Court, will no doubt be pained
to learn that there are reasons why they
should vigorously oppose him, more po
tent than the tact that ne ia m renegade.
These charges against him, which were

Mr. J. W. Glass, an excellent citizen,
who is the proprietor of a grocery store
near the Ulty Hospital, was indicted
by the grand jury some time since
for violating the four-mile law and
employed Mr. J. J. Brooks as his attorney.
Glass was convicted, but through the
efforts of Attorney Brooks a pardon was
obtained from the Governor shortly after
ward. Mr. Moss went to Nashville to
obtain a number of pardons granted to
clients of his who had been guilty of sim
ilar offenses, and was requested by Mr.
Brooks to obtain that which had been
granted to his client, Glass. Mr. Moss

Brooks he thoueht he oueht to have some
comoensation. Mr. Brooks replied that he
had asked him to get the paper as a lavor
to him, and could pay mm noining. air.
Moss then went to Glass, showed
him the pardon and demanded $25.
Glass - answered that the pardon
bai been obtained by bis own attorney.
Brooks, and though he thanked him for
bringing it to him, would pay him noth
ing. Mr. Moss told him he would tear up
the pardon il nis demand was not com
nlied with, and have him (Glass) again
indicted by the grand jury. Glass still
refused, and Moss went away, but after
ward returned and said he would take $15,
Glass, to get rid of him, and in order to
get possession of the pardon, paid Moss
$10. This statement oi jar. uiass is cor

Moss as a member oi tnat lowest legai

Meeting; oa the Blast.
The election for judge, sheriff and trus
tee takes place to-day, and the indications
ail point to a great Democratic victory A
final rally was had on the bluff last night,
the crowd numbering at least 1000. The
speeches were all vigorous, timely and
well received. The meeting was
by Judge T. W. Brown, who, in glowing
speech, presented Judge H. T. Ellett
Judge Eilett spoke 'warmly of the nomi
nees of the Democratic party, and vigor
ously advocated their re-election. There
waB no good reason why they should be

was the next SDaaker. After tiavinor
number of well-deserved compliments to
Messrs. Cannon, Douglass and Harris,
Judge Clapp declared tnat this was not a
government of or for any one man or
nationality, and that any man who, like
Kinsella, asked office solely on the ground
of nationality, deserved to be rebuked.
K e knew little of Moss, but could judge
him by bis works, and he asked what the
public had to expect of a man who would
sell himself for any office, and especially
iudsre of the Criminal Court. CoL A. H.

who spoke of the pleasuie he felt in doing
what he ought to do overcome his feelings
of physical indisposition. He owed "a
duty to his party and to his friends, its
chosen candidates, and he would do all
that lay in his power to secure their elec
tion. He felt that the Democrats would
roll up a granu v;.ory .o-uay. anx
iety he felt sprung from personal as well
as public feelins- "I feel, he said, "a
deep interest in this election, because the
gentlemen whose names are before yon
have a double claim upon me. Political
considerations ought possibly to be disre
garded in judicial contests. Perhaps the
Republicans are more fully released from
this consideration So far aa I know those
candidates they are clever men. One of
them has always been my warm advocate
and I shall torn over the contract of abus
ing John T. Moss to somebody else; but
I shall give him a private lecture to-night
I don't know what has come over him.
He must be suffering from, a temporary
aberration of the mind; but I do not be
lieve he will remain long with the Repub
lican party. He will return and work for
the Democratic party in November. As
to Mr. Kinsella, I remember that he has
trained with every party that has ex
isted in the last fifteen years. I think I
can dispose of Mr. John C. Hook.
I remember that on one o casion
I was preparing to shiver lances
with him in the Democratic con
vention, when I was surprised to hear
him suddenly get up in a Republican con
vention and ask the suffrages of that party.
W. D. Cannon is known as a man of tbe
strictest integrity, and when tie was, on
the death of the lamented Athy,
made his successor, he entered that high
office without a stain, and has continued
since to uphold tbe standard of excellence
he gained as a subordinate. The record
of Andrew Harris is pure and undented,
and in his hands the money ot the people
is safe. Long years ago, when I was just
starting out on my career, I saw already
half way np tho rugged side of the bight
before me a figure whose voice in
spired tb.9 weak and faltering
with courage. His eloquent voice
awakened my heart, and his hand
gave me aid. For thirty years I have
stood by him and no link of the chain
which has bonnd us together has ever
been broken. He has been everywhere
tho true man, and whether in the sunshine
of prosperity or the shadow of adversity
he has always been the same, steadfast
and true. Go to the polls feeling as if you
were administering a sacred trust and
Elace the affairs of Shelby county in the
ands of men who will conduct them
with honor and with credit."
Judge Ellett then introduced '
who said he deemed himself particularly
unfortunate in being appointed to speak
directly after so able and polished a
speaker as the Hon. Casey Young. But
he had never broken a resolution once
taken, and, with the permission of his
audience, would express himself as briefly
and pointedly as he could. "The ticket
which we have espoused," he de
clared, "is composed of the best men for
these offices. The issue ia one which is
clear and well defined a contest between
men known and tried and adventurers. It
seems to me that these offices otight to
be tilled by men who are competent and
well prepared to discharge the duties
which will devolve upon them. But the
nominees of the Republican party
seemed to think they possessed the re
quisite qualifications for the offices to
which they aspired without haying had
the advantage of experience. During this
whole canvass I have not heard one reason
why the present incumbents of the offices
of trustee and sheriff should not be re
tained ; but I have heard many and patent
reasons why the candidates of tbe Repub
lican party should not be elected to these
important offices. The same sentiment
which nerved the arm of the republic
against British oppression nerves it to-day,
and as local government is the corner
stone of republican government we should
see that it is kept pure."
was next introduced, and said: "I have
have been in this city canvass since the
ticket was nominated, and I feel justified
in predicting a great Democratic success.
Between the local officer and the citizen
there is no intermediate agent Your
trustee must take care of your, money,
your judge must pass upon your honor,
your character and maybe your life. This
is a question of best men, and not politics,
and I ask you to vote for Cannon, Harris
and Douglass solely because they are bet
ter men than Kinsella, Hook and Moss. Is
Hook a better man than Harris? If he
is, vote for him ; if not, vote for Andrew
J. Harris. I have heard it said that
Irishmen are going to vote for
Kinsella, but I know them too
well. They will not throw away
their votes on a man who has been recre
ant to his trust, Moses! I don't be
lieve there was ever an Irishman named
Moses. And Kinsella? Who ever heard
of an Irish name ending in an a. I have
nothing to Bay against J ohn r. Moss per
sonally, but yon want a man who has
been a truer man than John T. Moss has
proven himself to be. When tho issue is
presented to mis people tney win say
that the heel of public opinion ought to
be placed on his neck. Four days before
the Republican convention met he asked
Democrats to vote tor Him in a demo
cratic convention. But he jumped into
the arms of Bigelow and Vernon. Is snch
a man woi thy of public confidence? Be
fore he left the old nag 1 was his friend.
He says his old friends have gone back on
him, and they have because he in a rene
gade and a traitor and unfit He bartered
nis principles for an office and he de
serves a political death. And now, how
is it with tne Marshal Ney of Democracy ?
You can count on him. Old man Douglass
is white all the time, and Moss is black.
and green and varegated. . He talks about
changing on account of the tariff, when he
admits he knows nothing of it. It was the
lust for office that moved him. Cannon,
Douglass and Harris represent an honeft
administration of public affairs, and let
all who love good government go to the
polls to-morrow and vote and snow nnder
this mongrel ticket.
said : 'T don't propose to detain you long
to-night, but I have come out in order to
help along the movement in favor of good
government You must compare the two
tickets before you and decide which are
the best men. It is a common thing for
the parties to place their men before you,
and it is for you to decide which you will
take. I remember Cannon as an earnest
and faithful deputy sheriff when I was
chancellor. Andrew Jackson Harris has
a name which be has borne with all the
credit the public had a right to demand.

will not do so to-mono w. wo have in our
midst now some men who think and act
for themselves. In the selection of candi
dates tho Republicans chose men not long
in Republican harness. The Democrats
selected men that every man in Shelby
county does or ought to know. They are
known to be honest and capable lor the
positions tliey seek. Party spirit is differ
ent now from what it Was formerly. It is
our duty to decide whether these men
will act for the best interests of the coun
ty. We are told by some of the Republi
can 8 that tbe tariff question is an
Issue. This is wholly a local issue,
and national politics has nothing to
do with it All tbe Republicans in
Tennessee &ri in mourning about me
and Hamilton says the reason I was never
given an office by the Democrats was be
cause I did not deliver the goods. I did de
liver the goods, though some of them were
of an inferior quality. I worked sixteen
years for the Republican party, and never
got an otlice, and now they are .grieved be
cause I didn't get an office for the first
Democratic vota I cast I changed to the
Democratic party, not on tbe eve of an
election for an office, as Moss did, but be'
cause I believed it necessary for the best
interests ot tbe county and tate that
s ould work tor tbe Democratic par
ty. Cannon has tilled nis otace as
well as any man can, and yon are called
on to make a change for party name. All
over this country we are having defalca
tions and you may have it here if you
make a orange. You have no fear of
with Andrew J. Harris. To-morrow will
give ns the biggest victory Sheltiy county
every bad zoou. X belive the merchants,
the mechanics and laboring men will go
to the polls and vote as they Bhould do for
Uannon, Harris and Douglass."
said : "It is a pleasure to be called from a
large audience like this to address you.
but I wouldn't do it only I was told this
evening I dare not am a machinist in
the employ of the LI vermore foundry, and
will back what I say, physically and men
tally. I was asked why I intended to sup.
port Dir. uannon instead oi my follow
workman, Mr. Kmsella. It ifor the
work logmen tbat'my remarks are chiefly
intended. You are asked to support the
Republicans on the ground that they are
workingmen. Mr. Moss is not a working
man as I understand that term. I am a
nnlCS man. Mr. Hook is not the. work
ingmen's friend. I'e has said he could
buy the Typographical Union for $100.
He knows he is not telling the truth. That
is one of tho strongest onions
on this or any other continent,
and any man who would make that asser
tion is a fool. I stand before, you to-night
not afraid of Kinsolla or his friends, and
tell you he acted in bad faith in this city
twelve years ago with tbe Machinists and
Blacksmiths' Union." Mr. Eastonread an
article from the Trades Journal of that
date, showing that Mr. Kinsella, as one
of a committee to Bell tickets for a picnic
for the benefit of the order, asked $100
for their services, rk-b. amount they
withheld when it was demanded; also,
that Kinsella received for some tickets he
sold twenty times their value, but only
handed in $3 for each ticket ditposed of.
The meeting then adjourned. ..

Sir: I waive a rule I have observed for many

4ay, in reply to your request, what I know of your
Chlil Cure. It cured two casee of chills In my

Cure Is a valuable spectnc, and performs all you

Tour Chill Cure baa been a big success in this

IK 1870 Scrofulous Ulcers broke out on my body
until my breut was on ma of corruption.
Borne gf these Ulcers were not less than one-and-one-half
inches in diameter, tbe edges rough,
rag (red and seemingly dead, the cavity oi-en to the
bone and filled with offensive matter. Every
thing known to the medical faculty was tried in
vain. Gradually the bone itself became dieeaned,
and then the suffering began in earnest. Bone
Ulcers began to take the place of those hitherto
on the surface. I became a mere wreck. For
months at a time eould not get my hands to my
head because of extreme soreness. Could not
turn in bed. Knew not what it was to be an hour
even free from pain. Had reason to look upon
life itself as a curse. In the summer of 1K80, af
ter ten years of this wretched existence, I began to
use the Cuticuka Kkmiiiiks. and after two years
persistent use of them the last Ulcer was healed.
The dread disease I as succumbed. All over the
breast where was once a mass of corruption! is
now a healthy skin. My weight has increased
from one hundred and twenty-three to one hun
dred and fifty-six pounds and the good work ia
still going on. I feel mvself a new man and a:l
