SEXATon-Ei.ETT IIicxiins will do much to eipvutc the Slate of Delaware from the eld stereotyped p'n Hint it lias been ope rated upon during te reign of the Sulis burys and Bayards. Nkwrpapkr corresnondenU are work ing linrd to form a cnblnet for President elect Harrison. Mr. Jllutne una waeu up bis residence In Washington for a time, just the same as ninuy others uave anu will do before March 4th. Some place slpniflcance lo the Maine statesman's early arrival, but there is evidently noining in it. Mr. Harrison could communicate with bim just as well at his home In Augusta, Me., an in Washington. Mr. Blaine Is a wit man and one of great experience in both national and International affairs, but the propriety cf placing lilm at the head of the cabinet la matter for serious consideration. , We are glnd that the time is so near at hand for Secretary of State Bayard and Attorney General Garland to step down nnd out of authority. Mr. Garland re mains In his poslilon with charges of a serious nature hancing over bim unex plained, and Mr. Biyard has actually amounted to nothing during his entire term. Our trouble with Mexico was set tled on the.scbool.boy plan, that is, settled itsell. He sent a representative of this couutry tn the city of Mexico to look alter the affair, and while there he became o intoxicated lhat the authorities bad to take charge of him, and when he sobered up he le.lt the country in disgust. The Hshery question is still unsettled; that is, nothing has been done to establish our rights In the proper way. The time is short until March 4th, but very long to be compelled to suffer such men to re main at the head of such important, de partments. It is now evident that the railway pres idents have become disgusted with the course they have been pursuing of late years, In attempting to evade the laws of the land. They have been practically law breakers, but have went unpunished. The presidents of the leading lines recently held meeting In Boston, Mass., and it was more after the manner of a church confession meeting tbao any. thing else. One delegate said that be was tired of breaking the law, and so far as he was concerned be intended to pursue a different course In the future. The re sults of such meetings will be hailed with Joy by the whole people. When large corporations attempt to evade the law, and are called to arcount for It, they have the means of keeping It in the courts for many years until the matter is entirely forgotten by the people, and II the com plalnant geU anything at all it Is small, not half sufficient recompense for the trouble. Tns finance committee of the General Assembly are trying to devise some plan to increase the revenues ( the State. Va rious plans have been submitted, but none recommonded yet. One Is to tax all salaries of office-holders. In the first place the people are to be censured for permit ting such vast expenditures of money for the erection of our benevolent Institutions. Every one appears more like a palace than an Institution lor wblcb it is erected What difference does It make to the blind, Insane or Imbeciles, whether tbey are quartered In a palace or a plain building, the kind which should have been built Then again it coats an immense sum of money to operate them. These, with other things, have caused us to owe nearly four millions of dollars, and to pay the annual interest, make a small payment on Ike principal and pay our Incidental ex senses on the valuations, at the present rate ol taxation, will leave ns In arrears each year. Under the present system ot book-keeping we are inclined to think that some of the offices and clerical lorces could be dis continued. We have the same number ol officers now that we did when the goose-quill pen was in use, and still no move Is made to reduce the number. Friday evening last a band of armed masked men entered theTlllage of Jerome- vllle, Ashland county, with a view of com. mittlng depredations to property and committing violence on the friends of the Chcsrowes and their property. The law. abiding citizens feci so Indignant at Ihe verdict of the jury In acquitting the raur ilerers that they concluded to take the law In their own bands The presiding iodge in the case decided that the writ lUlhorlzIiig the officer to enter upon the premises of the accused was drafted in 'awful manner, and to carry out Instruc tions then was a duty strictly enjoined ipon bim, and when tie did attempt to perform bis sworn duty be was shot down ; ind then twelve men said that be did willing wrong, and permitted bim to go ott free, so lar as that term of the Com mon Pleas Court was concerned. We do not Indorse any such a move on the pan of any one. The courts have been ap- imuImI to and the tribunal said no cause for actien and there It should rest; at all events, we are powerless to do any more. Bucta verdicts are an outrage on society, and there should be some plan dovleed to rid the country of a repetition, ine Chesrown's committed the deed, and noth lug was left for them to do but employ the best of legal talent and make an effort to ch ar themselves. Their friends aided them, nil ol which was Iheir high priv-' liege, and the band of masked men are crtninly making a mistake when they liBturl) them. If any on is disturbed t'-.e members cl the jury Bhouid be held strictly accountable for rendering such a verdict. No humbug about Hill's Peorlels Worm Specific. It is a penuino common scnue remedy. F D Felt A Prospecting Tour, No. 2, by Our Special Correspondent. Pullman I'alack Cah. Editor of Th Entkrpbiss: The whistle blew.a bell rang, all aboard was said, and we were off tor the Sunny South, rolling over the prairies at the rale of Ihirly miles an hour, away from Ice and snow to the land of sugar-cane and cot ton, fruits and flowers, where the night ingales sing in a labyrinth of palms, pal mettos and magnolias, wuerc the spread. ing branches of grand old live oaks are festooned with mistletoe and veiled witli Spanish moss that swings to and fro in the balmy south winds, We are passing through the great prairie gardens of Illinois, a country rich in ev ery branch of agriculture. Milk trains are on their way to the city with the pro ducts of the dairy districts. The dairies here contain from 75 to 100 cowjj the price of milk is one dollar and twent cents per can of eight gallons. Farms vary In price, from seventy-live to one hundred dollars per acre; near the city they are worth much more, being used for market gardening. Proximity to market regulates the value of land, not richness of soil. Land near some of our eastern cities rents readily for one hundred dol lars per acre to skillful gardeners, who quite frequently makt one thousand dol lars clear. One acre there is worth onn hundred acres far away from market. Horticulture is much more profitable than agriculture, and more certain of succesr. The soil is kept rich by fertilizers, moist by Irrigation, dry by uuderdraining, and the growing crops cai be protected from anything which would devour or destroy. Fruits and flowers are usually cultivated in connection, and prove quite as profit, able, notwithstanding all that is said against specialists; they are the money makers now. But we surmise the fact that one must be fitted lor their specialty by nature and education. Fannie Field clears fltteen hundred dollars annually on her poultry farm of sixty acres. A horti culturist, with Chicago as bis market, made twenty thousand dollars last season from one hundred acres ot strawberries, or two hundred dollars an acre; hit garden Is In the State ot Mississippi. Dunham, at Wayne, 111., one of the largest import ers and breeders of Perchron horses in America, lives lo a castle and Is reputed to be worth a million dollars. Be started In small way twenty years ago and made horses his specialty. The State ol Illinois is one of the bad. Ing corn growing States, and we are past, ing through fields that stretch away as far as the eye can reach. The soil Is dark and very productive, but the country Is bare of scenic Interest at this season of the year. And to we fell to studying hu man nature around us. This is often a profitable study, if one it able to read character and, put In practice the lessons learned. Hera are people from all part of our country. Conservative New Kng. land la repiesentcd by several specimens earnest and upright In character and ot sterling Integrity, trait ol character much to be admired. Here are northern cap Italists, seeking for paying Investments In the new South, or to restore their health, more valued than gold. Here also are the bold cavaliers ol the South with their brave and beautiful ladies, typical types ol female loveliness. A little two-year-old boy banded the conductor his mother's ticket and said " he wanted to go to grand papas." This Is about as Indefinite as the old lady taking bcr first ride on t rail road. The conductor asked her where she wished to go, "Oh," said she, "do not go out of your way on my account; I am not particular, Just drive along any where." We crossed Mason and Dixon's Line at Cairo, and bad ride on one of the attrac tive river steamers. From the decks we taw the meeting ol the waters of the Ohio and Mississippi. The first we saw ol cotton, " king of the South," wss soon after passing from Ken tucky Into Tennessee. The picking It not all done. Some of the plantation afforded typical southern scenes of the great In- dustiy. The toll It red in color, tnd it looks very singular to northern eyet to tee black men picking white cotton on red toll under a blue iky. The present price ol cotton is 0 cents. It It pressed Into bales of 000 lbs. each. It is now raised by colored people at halves principally. One bile ol 500 lbs. It good average yield per acre. It it pressed on the plantation Into cubes about four feet square, and It compressed by the cotton broker into one- half this size, so tt to economize space in shipping. Most of it is shipped to the eastern factories. Stomaoh, Liver and other oriraos reaulre pure blood to properly rwrform their I functions It can be seemed bv nsinir I Arthro-phon I-a. F. D. Felt.
