Mr. and Mrs. Hoppe, who were lately de
clared Insane by the Alexander county
court, cannot bo received there,
whereupon the Gazelle , remarks: "Wo
readily grant that the Insane asylum at
Anna Is a Statu institution ; but ns It was
located with a view to accommodate the
reason-bereft unfortunates of Southern
Illinois, It Is worth while to inquire why
It is that counties in tliu extremo north
ern part of the State send their lunatics
hither whllo ample room and accommo
dations can bo secured in the Northern
asylum. It seems a great shame that tliu
Insane of Alexander county cannot he re
ceived because tho room Is occupied by
subjects Irom Lake, Champaign hud
Hock Island. Wo do not Intend to make
a fuss about tho matter; but It would not
distress us a partlclo losce hour body else

Police business varied a little yester
day from the dullness of the past week.
Judge Ilross had two eases, In the per
sons of Charles Clements .,iui Augustus
Virian. These two gentlemen indulged
rather freely in lenzine, and in their
rambles about the city, disturbed tlm
quietude of Nancy Mack, who resides on
Commercial avenue, between Twelfth
and Fourteenth streets. Nancy didn't
rell-h the sport which seemed tosoinueh
delight Charles and Augustus, so she had
them arrested on a charge of being
drunk and disorderly. They were lined
ten dollars and costs by His Honor, and
sent to the calaboose to board there for
seven days, because they couldn't pay.

The I'rownsville Itec, hi speaking of
the projected Ilrowimille & Tennessee
narrow gauge railroad, which, If built,
will be extended to Cairo, says: "Not
the veriest old fogy lias oyer yet given
up the road. Our circumstances, for the
past two year-, have been such that we
could not do anything for it, and have
quit talking about It, almost In weary
dsru-t. Kven the Ike lias been com
paratively quiet on the subject, after hav
ing said enough, If every line were a
crosstie, to lay the track from Holly
Springs to Cairo, but now we propose to
meet the question fairly mid build tho
road. On the Hue lo Friendship we
have the best road bed in the
State. The embankment have Mood un
til they aro settled and solid ; some little
damage, has been done by the rains, but
that can be easily repaired, and when the
track Is once laid it will stay there. Now
Is the best time in the world to complete
the work. Iron cm bo bought cheaper
than ever before; timber is abundant all
along tho Hue nud labor is plentiful all
through the country. Let us go to work
and run the cars to Friendship by the
llrst day of November, lti75. Then wo
may depend upon it, the road will go on
to Cairo and a St. Louis connection. Then
we will look Southward."

Last Summer the Hattlc ot the Heers
was waged in this city, Schlitz taking
the Held against all customers. The
general verdict was, we believe, that he
captured the camp of the enemy and
spiked his guns.
This year the Schlitz beer has not had
an easy row to how In lt strife with the
other beers. Pilsner and liest came in
and made a bigas-ault, capturing some
of the outworks ol" the Schlitz fortitiea
Hons and endangering the very citadel.
And now comes another beer, the most
formidable of all became the most pala
table, and threatens to supplant all the
oilier beers, to capture them, make them
prisoners of war, with all their arms and
munitions of war the Ileer of Valentine
Jiiaiz, urewer and .MuMer, of Milwau
kee. It is, indeed, a most delicious beer.
nbecr that all good judges will pro
nounce to be most excellent. A friend
of ours who has had some experience
In beers assure- us that It
is better than any beer on tap
in the city. lie has "put away" a Pa-
cuic ocean of Host, an Atlantic ocean of
Schlitz, a Mississippi river of Pilse-
tier, a Missouri river of St. Louis, an
Amazon river of Cincinnati, nnd a whole
Nile, soui co and all, of other beer, and
therefore claims the right to judge. This
friend assures us that of all the beers
Hlatz U best.
And where Is this beer sold? Kxact-
ly. a very proper question. At Jaeck
el's saloon. Amandus Jaeckel, who lias
no stiierior as a handler of beer, serves it
out as cold as water from under the North
Go, and try it.
Give Jaeckel a call, nnd call for lHatz'
becr. The young and old diink It ; the tem
perate take to it as to milk ; the beer
drinker drinks no other beer after having
tasted this. It is the beer of the season.
Drink it, and bo happy.
