THE LAND <>/ SOD. Last night I went to the Land of Nod: What do you think I saw there? Why, all thebabiesin all the world— Yellow-haired, dark-haired, frowsy and curled; Some black, some tawny, some fair. ‘ What is the way there?” On and on Over the velvety sod ; First you go up and then you go down, And then you come into Shut-eye town, Away in the Land of Nod. ‘•Tell you some more?” Oh, I haven’t the time; But maybe if each little elf Will run and climb into mamma’s lap. And cuddle right down for a forty-winks nap, He may see the land himself. Ait(|inia !**!*<• W. IF. U. GALLAHER. Editor. Charlcsto cn,Jefferson County, IFcsl Fn. November 1.1888. The Painlessness of Death. The act of dying, it is now ascertained, is absolutely free from suffering; is really unconscious, insensibility always preceding it. Any anguish that may attend mortal illness ceases before the close, as thousands who have recovered, after hope had been surrendered, have borne witness. Sudden violent death, shocking to the senses, may not be, probably is not, painful to the vic tim. Drowning, hanging, freezing, shoot ing, falling from a height, poisoning of many kinds, beget stupor or numbness of the nerves, which is incompatible with sen sation. Persons who have met with such accidents, and survived them, testify to this. Records to the effect are numberless. —Junius ll. Browne in Ihr October Forum. Southern California Agent: “There, sir, look over into that field. Did you ever see a man plough so easily as that?” Eastern Farmer: “By gum! The plough does seem to go ea->v, don’t it? The man seems to enjoy it.” “Yes, sir; keeps jumping and dancing along like a boy ; just sec his heels Hy.” “Looks a good deal like a jig, I must say.” Little Hoy, (native:)“I*op ain’t dancin’; lie’s tryin’ ter keep outen the way o’ the terantulas an’ rattlesnakes wot he turns up.” The surplus revenue now remaining in the Treasury not only furnishes conclusive proof of unjust taxation, but its existence constitutes a separate and independent menace to the prosperity of the people. The vast accumulation of idle funds represents that much money drawn from the circulating medium of the country which is needed in the channels of trade and business.—President Cleveland's Letter of Acceptance. A little Lowell girl, who had been care fully trained by her mother, was beingdre.ss cd for church Sunday. The gay gown had been put on, and the little one surveyed herself with evident satisfaction. “Mam ma,” she said, “docs God see everything?” “Certainly, dear,” said the mother. “Docs He see me now ?” “Why, yes,” replied the astonished matron. “Well, then, He sees a pretty neat-looking little girl, doesn’t He, mamma.” -♦ ♦ We are annually collect lg at our cus tom houses and by means of our internal revenue system many millions in cxccss.of all legitimate public needs. As a conse quence there now remains in the National Treasury a surplus of more than one hun dred and thirty million dollars. No better evidence could be furnished that the people are exorbitantly taxed.— n__i /si_i_is. i n_ .• 4 .1. Our government is the creation of the people, established to carry out their dc 8:gns and accomplish their good. It was founded on justice and was made for a free, intelligent anil virtuous people. It is only useful when within their control, and only serves them well when regulated and guid ed by their constant touch.—President Cleveland* Letter of Acceptance. -» - - - The First Symptoms of Death, Tired feeling, dull headache, pains in va rious parts of the body, sinking at the pit of the stomach, loss of appetite, feverish ness, pimples or sores, arc all positive evi dence of poisoned blood. Xo matter how it became poisoned it must be purified to avoid death. Acker’s English Blood Elixir has never failed to remove scrofulous or ’ syphilitic poisons. Sold under a positive | guarantee. C. Frank Jones. We propose, too by extending the market for our manufacturers, to promote the steady employment of labor, while by cheapening the cost of the necessaries of life we in crease the purchasing power of the work-! ingman’s wages and add to the comforts of his home.—I'resident ClevelandC Letter of, Acceptance. Our people ask relief lrom the undue and j unnecessary burden of tariff taxation now resting upon them. They are offered—free tobacco and free whiskey. They ask for bread and they are given a stone.—President Cleveland's Letter of Ac ceptance. They arc coming by the hundreds and thousands. The latest to desert the ranks of Republicanism is John Stephenson, the great car builder, who has voted the Repub lican ticket since the days of the party or ganization. Mr. Stephenson is for Cleve land and reform.—Cleveland Plaindealer. Our established domestic industries and enterprises should not, and need not, be endangered by a reduction and correction of the burdens of taxation.--Democratic Platform of 158$. Queer People. This is the title of the latest, and by al! odds the most charming book for little peo 1 pie we have ever seen. Its fables, or stories ;ire delightful, but the illustrations are *im ; ply immense. The author, Palmer Cox, is a new star in thejuvenile firmament, but he shines with unique brilliancy. His charming fables ri val those of the world famed JEsop, and he far outshines that celebrated literary comet by his inimitable illustrations. He dresses up his birds, animals, insects, giants, fairies, goblins, etc., in grotesque style aud makes them reason, talk, dance, and cut up all sort of the oddest pranks imaginable, affording infinite delight, as well ns excellent instruc tion to the young. The issue of his book “Queer People” has brought a perfect ova tion of praise from the brightest men in tin land. For instance, lien. Clinton B. Fisk says: “It has set my children wild with de light,” and Col. Russell II. Conwell, the fa mous lecturer, says: “Don’t send me anothei such a book, fori can’t get my children tc bed.” The famous statesman, diplomat, and wit Sunset Cox, says: “The Kweer Kapcrs an simply incomparable,” while the distin guished theologian, Dr. Howard Crosby says; “they have the fascination that be longs to JEsop and Uncle Remus,” and the venerable poet, Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes writes “I am sorry I have not a nursery full of little folks to enjoy its bright pictures and stories.” .Esop’s fables are enjoyed by old and young and are quoted by the greatest orators and surely these equally charming stories, so profusely and exquisitely illustrated will charm young and old for generations to The sale of this book will surely l>e enor mous. It is published'by the well known house of Hubbard Bros., Phila., Chicago, and Kansas City, to whom any persons de siring an agency should apply. yew Music. We have just received the following bright and sparkling compositions from the popu lar Music Publishers, P. It. McCargo Co., Boston, Mass., who will be pleased to mail their descriptive music catalogue to any ad dress sent them. "Harrison’s Campaign March,” by Clif ford Hale, is a rousing campaign march ol a showy, quick, dashing character, with a fine lithographic title-page, embellished with elegant portraits of the Republican nominees for President and Vice-President, "Cleveland’s Luck and Love”—Grand March, by Miss Ida. A delightful creation of rare merit. Easy, brilliant and pleasing. It has a band tome lithographic title-page, uniquely designed, with fine portraits of the President and Mrs. Cleveland. "The Old Roman March,” by the famous Rosenfeld. A charming composition; the music is bright, pretty and full of stirring melody. A magnificent portrait of the Hon. Allen G.Thurman,handsomely litho graphed upon a fac-simile of the veritable Red Bandana, combine in making one ol the most attractive title-pages yet produced. "Open thy Lattice.” Waltz Serenade; words and music by Nolan; a beautiful melody of unusual attractiveness. The same can be he said of Waldman’s "Little Fisher-Maiden,” the latest craze in song ; also an elegant copy of that charming com position by "Heluiond, “Thine my dreams are Marguerita.” We can truly recommend all or any of the above to our readers. We have entered upon no crusade of free trade. The reform we seek to inaugurate is predicated upon the utmost care for es tablished industries and enterprises, a jeal ous regard for the interests of American labor anu a sincere desire to relieve tbe country from the injustice and danger of a condition which threatens evil to all the people of the land.— Cleveland's Letter nj Acceptance. Syrup of Fly* Is Nature’s own true laxative. It is the most easily taken, and the most effective remedy known to Cleanse the System when Bilious or Costive; to dispel Headaches, Colds, and Fevers; to Cure Habitual Con stipation, Indigestion, Piles, etc. Manu factured only by the California Fig Syrup Company, San Francisco, Cal. Sir. C. Frank Jones, has been appointed agent for Charlestown, W. Va. Gov. Foraker, of Ohio, declares that the South must be “invaded, suppressed and punished, as Southern outrages have be come unendurable.” Gov. Foraker is con tinually shooting off his mouth to the hurt of his party. We wonder at the stupidity of the Republican party in permitting him to go abroad at all. The Wheeling Register is now the posses sor ot a new double cylinder Hoe press which enables it to wait until the last mo ment far news and still be out on time. We are glad to note this evidence of the Regis ter's prosperity. More than glad it will be able to hoe its own row. Answer This OuesUon: Why do so many people we see around us seem to prefer to suffer and be made miser able by Indigestion, Constipation, Dizzi ness, Loss of Appetite, Coming up of the Food, Yellow Skin, when for 75 cents wc will sell them Shiloh's System Vilalizer, guaranteed to cure them. Sold by C. Fkank Jones. -- -.^ ♦ Presidents Garfield and Arthur declared for a reduction of the tariff and an enlarge' ment of tbe free list. They died just in time to escape the denunciation of “free trader” from Republican press aud people. Iu a readjustment of our tariff the inter ests ot American labor engaged in manu facture should be carefully considered, as w.-ll as tbe preservation of our manufactu rers.— President's Message of 1S87. Republicans Have Oone Back on Their Vttera nees. During the most pressing exigencies of 1 the terrible contest in which we were en gaged, neither bread-stuffs nor lumber ever became the subject of one penny of taxa tion.— James G. Blaine, 1368. The free list might be enlarged without affecting injuriously a single American in terest.— llm. McKinley, (Rep.) of Ohio, 1882. I believe this article (salt) should go upon the free list: that the monopoly which has obtained heretofore for the Onondaga Salt Works—as great and complete as any mo nopoly ever granted by the Tudors in Eng land’s most despotic times—ought to cease. —Eugene Hale, (Rep.) of Maine, 1871. Undoubtedly the inequalities in the wages of English and American operations are more than equalized by the greater efficiency of the latter and their longer hours of la bor.—Blaine, 1881. It is a mistake of the friends of a sound tariff to insist upon the extreme rates im posed during the war, if less will raise the necessary revenue. - Sen. (Rep.)Morrill, 1870. It is due to the labor of the nation that taxation should be equalized and reduced as rapidly ns the national faith will permit. —National Republican Platform, 1868. The tariff of 1846, although confessedly and professedly a tariff for revenue, was, so far as regards all the great interests of the country, as perfect a tariff as any that we have ever had.—Senator Allison, (Rep.) 1870. To lay with one hand the power of the Government on the prosperity of the citi zen, and with the other to bestow it upon favored individuals to aid private enter- ' prises and build up private fortunes, is none the less a robbery because it is done under the forms of law and is called taxa tion.— Justice Miller (Rep.) of the V. S. Su nrrine Court. Mr. Adam Forepaugh the great showman says: ‘‘I have wagered about $18,000 on Cleveland. The last bet of $1,000 was made on Saturday. I have been travelling about all over the country for the past nix months and I have had my eyes and ears open, and 1 have seen nnd heard enough to convince me that Mr. Cleveland will have a walk over. I think 1 have had a better opportu nity to study the political situation all over the country than people who are settled in one place. I wouldn’t risk $18,000 on Cleveland if I hadn’t pretty good reasons for believing that I was going to wiu. “Cleveland will carry Indiana, and he’ll sweep New York State. The Republicans can talk about the alleged discord between the friends of Hill and Cleveland, but thero is no truth in it. I know there is not. Why, Hill is going on the stump for Cleve land, and he and his friends are going to work as hard as they know how for the Ad ministration. “I have visited every prominent place in New York State nnd the people arc for Cleveland. Why, down in Maine in Illainc’s own bailiwick, people arc shouting for Cleveland that never breathed Democratic politics before except in slander. Cleveland will get votes in Maine by hundreds that were never cast for a Democrat before. All through New England I found that Cleve land’s policy has won him thousands of votes that he didn’t have when he was first elected and his retaliation bill has won him the friendship of the fishermen of New England. Quay will get fooled about New York.” ♦ ^ «► True to the undeviating course of the Democratic party we will not neglect the in tv. i v ” to \ji iaw<;i aim win unu nuriui^* men. In all efforts to remedy existing evils, we wiil furnish no excuse for the loss of employment or the reduction of the wage of honest toil. On the contrary, we propose in any adjustment of our reyenue laws to concede such encouragement and advantage to the employers of domestic la bor as will easily compensate for any dif ference that may exist between the standard of wages which should be paid to our la boring men and the rate allowed in other countries. We propose, too, by extending the markets for our manufacturers to pro mote the steady employment of labor, while by cheapening the cost of the necessaries of life we increase the purchasing power of the workingman’s wages and add to the comforts of his home.—Clevelands IAfter of Acceptance. —— Shiloh's Consumption Cure.

But in my opinion the reductions now pro posed on dutiable imports, and the proposed additions to the free list, will be beneficial to the manufacturers themselves as well as to their laborers and the consumers of their ! products.—Speaker Carlisle on the Mills Hill.
