Mr. A. W. Tvbell, Merchants Hotel,
Shelby street, Detroit Mich., writes: "I
can cheerfully bear testimony to the won
derful healing qualities of the Great Ger
man Remedy, St. Jacobs Oil. I was afflict'
ed with rheumatism for a long time, and I
almost gave myself up as incurable. The
UBa of the above preparation cured me
completely, and I feel like a new man."
I "HOW IS THIS FOR HIGH."
In the Globe-Democrat of Tuesday ap
pears the following editorial item :
"Cairo is preparing to give the Missis
sippi improvement scheme a big boom
when the spring freshets come. About the
first of March, or as soon thereafter as ths
stsge of water will permit, a sea-going
stermer will come up the Mississippi to
Csiro, take on a big load of grain and start
for Liverpool direct. The Chicago papors
will please note this fact"
Undoubtedly the Globe-Democrat knows
what it is talking about The possibility
of the thing suggested is not doubted by
any who know the state of the
Mississipi river below Cairo at the season of
the year mentioned. And it will not re
quire the expenditure of a very large sum
of aaoney either to make it possible for the
fargost sea-going vessels to reach Cairo at
all times without inconvenionce. It is
gratifying to soe St. Tmiu recognizo the
importance of Cairo us a shipping point,
and other cities, including Chicago, will be
forced to do the same before long, i
THE NEW VACCINATION ORDER.
The following explanation has been is
sued by the president of the Btate board of
health : .
Illinois state board of health, Chicago
Doc. 19. To correct a public misap
prehension, allow mo to 1 say
that the regulation rocently adopted by the
state board of health, requiring that from
and after the 1st day of January, 1883, no
child shall bo admitted to the public schools
of this state without a certiflcato of .suc
cessful vaccination, was adopted by tho
board under the law authorizing Baid board
to establish sanitary regulations for the
state, and ia therefore Valid and obligatory
upon school officers and teachers in charge
of schools. This regulation was not . In
tended to require a new certiflcato of tac
cination for thosechildren who have already,
under local health regulations like those of
Chicago and severe! other cities of the state,
presonted such certificates. The aim of . the
state board is simply to extend throughout
the state a regulation which has beon found
effective ia the cities, and which may help
to save our people from the invasion of a
malignant disoaao now threatening to be
come epidemic. Very respectfully,
; John M. Gbboorv,
President Illinois state board of health.

A Journalist On Prayer. -
There is just at present a particularly
animated discussion going on as to the
provluco and efficacy of prayer. 1
It is very easy for unbelievers to ridi
cule prayer. They say: "Does it rain
whon you prny for rain?" ' "Docs it
stop ruining when you pray for sun
shine?" Then they laugh at the idea that a
universe which is manifestly governed
by general laws should be influenced by
In reply to all this it may be stated
that all spiritual and religious affairs
are enveloped in mystery. Wo seo
them as through a glass, darkly.
But what Boeras to us a very powerful
argument in fuvor of prayer, and, In
deed, unanswerable, is the universal in
stinct to fall "'down before,1 a r higher
power and petition for holpahd relief
under afflictions tot which there is no
human reraody. ; '
By tho doath bod of our belovod who
would not pray?
Then it will not do to make light of
prayer to attompt to ridicule the whole t
world on Its knm; alike saint and sin
; ner tho revorond pastor and .the pirate
in A storm supplicate the .same God
for forgivonnss and prusorvatiou.
Tliis was written, ly the lawyer and
journalist," William A.' Bartlott who
died a fow days later. ' Tho article was
rend at his funoral by Bishop Clark as
evldciico of the religious fooling of the
Compaot Living. '
