CRAWFORD fc imo., Pijumhiuts- Tonal, f.1.50 per imnum, in advance. FRIDAY, JANUARY A, 1878. Judge M. M. Oothroa for Justice of the Supreme Court, Very favorable mention has been made of the name of Hon. M. M. Cothren, of this city, for one of the Justices of the Supreme Court. We find the following among many notices given to the; Judge, and take pleasure in endorsing what, is said of him: Commercial Times: “JudgeCothren of lowa county, won a reputat ion for ability and impartiality as circuit judge many years ago, which has re mained with him ever since. His mind is singularly clear and accurate in discriminating between the pure technicalities of the taw and its fixed and substantial principles. One of the city papers yesterday paid Judge Cothren this merited compliment: Judge M. M. Cothren of Mineral Point, passed the Sahhath in this city. Judge Cothren has been prominently mentioned by the bar of his own.cir cuit as a candidate for justice of the supreme court. It will he remembered that in IHill, the judge was a candi date for chief justice of the supreme court. In that canvass he carried the stale on the home vote by a large ma jority, Imt. by some hocus pocus he was counted out. The,iu Ige is so mod est and retiring that he never attemp ted to expose the intrigue by which he was counted out, and the people of the state disfranchised, although the facts were placed in Ids hands. As an evidence of his popularity iu his own circuit, it is stated that iu the canvass in which he was elected, in the spring of 1H75, he received a majority over the republican ami democratic candi dates, mid the circuit is strongly re publican. An abler or a more consci entious judge does not sit upon the bench iu this stale.” Correspondent of the Sentinel: (liraud Rapids, Dee. lit. The Decem ber term of our Circuit Court has just closed, a large amount of business having been disposed of iu the short est possible time. Judge M. M. Colli culi, of Mineral Point, by an exchange with our circuit judge, Park, held the tern*, and gave universal satisfaction for promptness in disposing of knotty questions, and dispatch of business, .furors, clients, officers and attorneys of the court are all enthusiastic iu his praise. (Iriind Rapids Tribune, Dec. Hth. -The December term of our circuit court commenced on Tuesday, Judge M. M. Cothren, of the Mineral Point circuit, presiding. My bis promptness and a careful regard for the interest of the county, J udge C. Is being alluded lohy all classes in the highest terms. If he will accept, our people would he glad to support him for associate jus tice of the supreme court. Ml NICK A I.l*ol NT, Jan. !ld IM7. Ktls DemocratTimquestion wbetbor onr young mcncmibn reformed or not is now agitating the public miml. To bring about the alllrmativnof this qucs lion two tilings are necessary. First, our young men must exert themselves and make a linn resolution to reform. The resolution must he made to be acted on in the present; no future one would possibly do. We hope that no one will make a resolve to-morrow that can as well be made to-day, for he may better make none at all. We say make the determination to reform to-day, and above all. st ick to Second, our people should give the boys encourage ment by helping them along. The pride of every young person is to be respected at home, and as a nat ural consequence it would follow that everywhere he would be respected. Hut if a man is dissipated, people of his native home look down at him and if he gets* out into the-world, his bad Waits will follow him iws. surely as he will try to hide them. One of the moral breakdowns that an intelligent and well bred young fellow is liable ' > fall into is bad company, but it is no body's fault but his own. Take an average young man of the highest class and he thinks he knows what il is to he a gentleman. In the ordinal) acceptation of the term, a gentleman h a person of rank or w 'alt ii but I here * a heller de,initia l. \ real gentle man is not of birth or station but of "rur *. A Iru• g• r lent mI h .is a irtuotis truth-lov ia ; man, A gentle o .a then, will mu and ink as som • ol our so called gentle aen do. l et a •>a ulard be raised of a truegentk. ■ and let those who desire to reform live up to it, for if a man wants to be thought a man, In* must act the man. lie a gentleman and if you don't suc ceed in life, then the circumstance will surpass history. Ukx. We ought to change our policy to ward the Indian. We have tried it long enough to convince us that it won’tdo. We hunt up a broken-down, half-starved vagabond of an Indian, remove him to a reservation, give him a pair of spurs and a plug hat, and when by doing nothing and living on principally what he can get—the agent of the government cheating him out of every-thing else—he lias grown stout and strong, we send a company of cavalry out there to drive him away—or what is pretty much the same thing, to give him a chance to drive the cavalry away. Having ex terminated the troops, ami put us to an expense of four or live millions of dollars, he is again hunted up with a a white (lag, a treaty of peace is imule with him, he is inveigled into another reservation, where he is again fatten ed and placed on a war footing, and then we mount and go for him again. This thing has been going on for sev enty-live years. One year we pursued the Indian at an expense of live mil lions of dollars, and all we accom plished was the death of one squaw. 'Suppose, just for the fun of the thing, that we have a change. Any change will he for the bettor.—Courier Jour nal. Tho Closing 1 Year. ny mtv, ,r. k. rrsimit. 'TIs done !

' This Sarsaparilla isneombination of vegetable alteratives—Stilliugia,Man drake,!' ellow Dock—with the iodides of Potassium and Iron, and is the most efficacious medicine yet known for the diseases it is intended to cure. Its ingredients are so skilfully combined that the full alterative effect of each is assured, and while it is so mild us to lie harmless even to children, it is still so effectual as to purge out from the system those impurities and corruptions which develop into loathsome disease. The reputation it enjoys is derived from its cures, ami trie confidence which prominent physicians all over tlie country repose in it proves their experience of its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues havlf accumulated, and are con stantly being received, and as many of these cases are publicly known, they furnish convincing evidence of the superiority of this Sarsanarilla over every other alterative medicine. So generally is its superiority to any other medicine known that we need do no more than to assure the public that the best qualities it has ever possessed are strictly maintained. rnevaat:i> nr Dr, J.
