FROM REPUBLICAN PAPERS.
The St. Louis Ololte-Democrat: The Convention having killed oH" all the big Democratic Statesmen who came before it, was forced to fall bark ou a soldier who won all his laurels in killing and capturing Democrats in the war of the Rebellion. The Philadelphia Press : The nom ination of Gen. Hancock represents no idea or principle but that of supposed availability. He was a good soldier, and there his little begins and ends. He has no claims to statesmanship, no experience in civil administration, and no discipline in public affairs, no fixed position or known convictions or any of the questions of present public in terest. The Chicago Tribune: His name offers no promise ot statesmanship and no pledge of progress, but only the re vival of the old-time subordination of the Democratic party to the dictation of the South. The Washington National Republi can : We think the Democracy has made the same kind of a mistake in the selection of a candidate at Cincin nati as the Whigs in 1852, at Balti more in the nomination of Gen. Scott. In each case the trained statesmen were set aside because they were statesmen and had made a record. The Cleveland Leader: Hancock is neither a free trader nor a protection ist. Neither a hard nor soft money man. He has no record as a statesman, and if he has any opinions on any of the great questions of the day no one knows what they are. The New York Tribune: Gen. Win field Scott Hancock is a reputable and gallant soldier of the United States Army, and will make just about such a candidate as Gen. Winfield Scott did. * He is nominated just as much too late, when the day for mere military candi dates is just as far passed. The Chicago Inter-Ocean : It will not do. Hancock cannot change the spirit of the Democratic party. He can not stretch his splendid record as a soldier as he would a mantle to cover all the sins of his party. The New York Times: It is a pe culiarly constituted party which sends Rebel Brigadiers to Congrees because of their rebellion, and which nominates a Union General as its candidate for Presidency of the United States be cause of bis loyalty. Hancock! What potency is there in his name to awak en proud memories ? What sugges tions are there in his career to quicken the flagging energies of a morbid par ty ? Does anybody know what Gen. Hancock knows about the principles of finance, about the tariff, civil service reform, inter-State commerce, or free ships ? The Boston Herald: In practical knowledge of the affairs of the State, Garfield has an immense advantage. He is the "most statesmanlike of all the men in public to-day. His views are broad, liberal and progressive. He has a constructive mind, and he looks clearly into the future. Hancock is a conservative by nature and education. He has perfect faith in the system of government devised by the fathers, and has distinguished himself by respect for and obedience to the Constitution. The two opposing candidates repre sent very well the objects and aims of the two parties. E A TIN O CROW. The politics of "eating crow" is in the application of the original story to people who swallow a disagreeable candidate of their own party rather than vote for the candidate of their opponents. A man that "bolts" or "scratches" is not a "crow-eater," and it often becomes a question for the voter whether he will "scratch"— erase the obnoxious name; "bolt"— support the opponent; or "eat crow" —vote for the objectionable candidate as the lesser evil. After all sharply contested nominations where bad rec cords have been exposed or unfair means of securing a nomination have been resorted to, "crow" becomes the common diet of "good party men," while those on whom party bonds sit loosely either stay away from the polls, scratch, or bolt. The following story explains how that peculiar diet came into vogue: The first allusion to "eating crow" was made in the Knickerbocker Maga zine a little more than a quarter of a century ago. It was a story of a sum mer boarding housekeeper on the Hud son, and of an indignant patron. Whenever the latter ventured to sug gest that the spring chicken was rather tough, or that the roast beef must have been cut from the cow's hoofs, he was directly told that he was entirely "too pertickeler," and that the autocrat of the table and the house could eat any thing, even a crow. This settled the matter for the time being, but the boarder convinced against his will was of the same opinion still, at all events, j in regard to the quantity of the edi bles placed before him. So often was the remark, "I kin eat anything; I kin eat a crow," brought down on his devoted head that he finally resolved to try the old man. He went out gun ning one day and succeeded in bag ging a very fine, fat, old black crow. He went into the kitcken, and, by dint of soft words and filty lucre, induced the cook to allow him to prepare that crow for the table. He boiled it nicely and it wasn't such a bad looking dish after all. His heart misgave him; the fiinty old cuss would eat it after all. The cook was a Scotch woman, and used Bnuff He borrowed all she had and sprinkled it liberally over the crow, gave her another simmer, and then, taking it on a salver, brought it before his host, saying as he set it down, "Now, my dear sir, you have said a thousand times, if you have said it once, that you can eat crew. Here is one very carefully cooked." It is said the old man turned pale for a moment, but braced himself against the back of his chair, and with "I kin eat crow," he began, cutting a good mouthful. He swallowed it, and then preparing for a second onslaught, he looked his boarder straight in the eye, while he ejaculated, "I've eaten crow," and took his Becond portion. He lifted his hands mechanically, as if for a third onslaught, but dropped them quickly over the region of his stomach, and, rising hurriedly and unsteadily, retreated for the door, muttering as he went, "but hang me if I hanker after it." Salt will kill the army worm. Catch the worm, cut off his head and then cover him with salt. Get the best salt. There is a great deal of geography in politics this year. Advertise in the CITIZEN. ' REMEMBER THE DAYS OF YOUR CHILDHOOD. Wbv do not all of us to whom God, in His fatherly love, lias given the care and comfort of little ones, oftener remember our own feeling.-in the* days of our childhood in our treatment of them ? Few, if any, are those among us who, looking away back to that dimlv-remembered era of quick im pulses and fresh, keen susceptibilities, cannot recall moments of hot indigna tion at petty slights or positive injus tice on the part of those over us. Of course, with our present severe sen-e of the duty, of unquestioning sub mission on the part of children—a sense that comes with age, and with age only—we can all see that such a sentiment is rebellious, and should never find a place in the mind of tho model child. But the model child is too good for this world and, oh, the pity of it! always—well, nearly al ways—dies young, so that, alas ! very few of us old folks ever belonged to that very exceptional class. We have nearly all, therefore, experienced this sort of feeling at one time or another in our bread-and-butter days. If it occurred seldom or on slight provoca tion, or if a general course of loving kindness in the conduct of those over us, or a naturally good disposition on our part, has rapidly obliterated it, it has rarely had much influence on our after-lives; but when it has, fre quently or in flagrant cases, excited the tendency to resentful passion that often is innate even in juvenile human nature, Good God! how many chil dren, even of a promising character, has it soured in disposition, or driven to wavward courses and rendered a curse instead of a blessing to parents and kindred ! Oh fathers and mothers, and all you to whom the Great Father has as signed the formation of the character of men and women of the next genera tion, in your treatment of them now in their childhood, for God's sake, for your own sake, and for their sake, be a little more mindful of your own ex perience at that susceptible and forma tive period. Every week one comes across faces so cold, selfish, and ada mantine, that one wonders if they were ever beautiful with the warmth, generosity and mobility of youth. A bitter reproach is such an emotion to the object that has excited it. Yet, when one thinks of it, how much more numerous are the characters deserv ing a like censure in that they, too, seem never to have known the sensaj tions of childhood. MRS. LYDIA E. PINKHAM.

Are now putting on the market a Plow that Is as much superior to any Plow heretofore made as the Plows of the past few years have been superior to those made half a century ago. It combines all the excellencies of any Plow In use. It obviates all the objections made to any other Plow. in addition it embraces several new features of the greatest value, for which we have ob tained exclusive Patents. Its Beam, Clevis, Jointer Standard and Wheel Standard will be BTEEL, and Its mold board will be a composition of Steel and Iron chilled under a process "for which we have also obtained an exclusive Patent. It will be called THE SYRACUSE CHILLED STEEL PLOW Its weight will be eighteen pounds less than our present styles. A first-class Steel Plow, made In the or dinary way, full rigged, retails for twenty-two dollars. Inferior Steel Plows retail from six teen to nineteen dollars. The price of our new Plow will be but Seventeen Dollars, and It will be the cheapest Agricultural Implement ever sold. Its mold board will outwear three of the very best kinds of the ordinary steel mold boards. It will scour In soils where all steel plows and all other plows have hitherto proved a failure. With this Plow will be introduced a corru gated Plow Point and Jointer Point, on which we have also obtained a Patent, and which la also a great Improvement, both as regards ttrength and wear. The Jointer can be shifted so as to take more or less land, and also more or less pitch, and It can always be kept on a line with tho Plow. The wheel will run under the beam or one side of It as desired, and always kept In line. The beam is adjustable for Spring or Fall Plowing, and also for two or three horses. The handles can be adjusted to accommo date a man or boy, on the same Plow. It Is a perfect Plow. Wooden beams are going out of use because they shrink, swell and warp, and never run two seasons alike. Iron beams are too heavy. Malleable beams become demoralized and bend, which Is much worse than to break. A Steel beam is the necessity of the day. It b three times as strong and very much lighter than any other style. When «>« say a Mold board Is chilled, tho farmers know It Is so. We do not palm ofT on them a composition Cf various metals and call it chilled metaL We want agents for this new Plow In every town In this State. We can give but a very small discount to them, but we will pay the Railroad Freight. We propose to place this Plow In the hands of Farmers as near the cost of manufacture as possible. It will be the bent Agricultural Implement ever sold. It shall also be the cheapest. Persons therefore who are not willing to act as agents on the principle that " a nimble six pence is better than a slow shilling," need not apply for an agency. No Plows on commission. All sales absolute. BP" This is the only Steel Chilled Plow In the World. Steel costs several times more than Iron. But this Plow, full rigged, by giving small discounts, can be sold for Seventeen Dollars. Compare this price with that of any Iron Plow ever made. It Is cheaper than any other Plow now made would be at five dollars and a halt Where there are no agents we will, on re ceiptor Seventeen Dollars, send a Plow to any Kallroad station In the State and pay tha freight.
