Just few days ago in a con versationwith the proprietor of The Heral, Mr. Jesse 0. Wheeler, we elicited the fact and state it with pleasure that hisim has always been "to give his readers a clean and neatly printed sheet," and that he believes that a good typographical made-up newspaper is always ap preciated by its readers. He does not lay so much stress upon artistic work in advertisements, headings and general make-up, but he insists that every line should be free from smear, blur or dimness, and es pecially now since the paper has a new dress. "Why print a smeary paper," said he, "it costs no more to issue a readable publication?" The subscribers of The Herald can avc are sure from now on rely upon a clean, neat, spicy daily, which will be full of good things, "from grave to gay, and from lively to leaven." v.V.

"The Boston Journal tells a story of an actor who was accustomed to spend his summers in Wilton, Me. Thero ho noted when, as the custom was, a farmer "killed a critter," the liver, sweetbreads, kidneys, etc., were thrown away. He offered to purchase these delicacies, but, though he got the goods, the "sturdy farmer scorned his proffered gold." Not long after he observed as he walked through the village that he was the cynosure, of all eyes and was followed by a wondering, if not admiring, crowd, chiefly of the young. "Aha," throught he, "I cannot escape my fame; my glory as an actor has followed me even to this obscure hamlet." And he was mightily puffed up till he over heard one yokel shout to another: "Bill, there goes the feller that eats innerds!" THE FIFTEENTH DISTRICT. It Is Probable the Campaign Will Be a Warm One. Corpus Christi, Texas, August G. The fight in this, the Fifteenth" congressional district, this year is going to be a hotly contested one, and it is going to take considerable campaigning and liard work on the part of the democrats to cany the district for Garner, although it is believed they eventually will. There is considerable wind and boodle with the republicans, but their chances of success for Scott is not so very strong in some respects. If Garner and Scott make an even race north of the Nueces river, it is almost certain that the Rio Grande counties, where Judge James B. Wells holds the reins in his hands, will pile up a big majority for Garner. The main battle ground, however, will be in this (Nueces) count7, Scott's home, and the in dications are the republican intend to make a harcare. The democrats likewise will get on their righting clothes after Garner's nom ination on 'the 27tinstant, and then the real batFwill commence. Already some 01 the republican Na tional committee's corruption fund is said to be in circulation. The democrats, on the other hand, are quietly "sawing wood" and watch ing the maneuvers of Scott hench men, and when the ballots are counted, in November the result of their labors will be forcibly dis agreeable to the republicans, and it will be the same old tale, "We Would have won if the Rio Grande hW not gone democratic." i j Our CompLei FANCY Wiil'urrivf h"r ii -t f dnys hmu at soon rh-y htm revived ruti will hn tJJV-ti in fill "p-tO, Watch for it - Lay-ton DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED by loc il applications as thqy cannot reach the diseased porti n of the ear.
