Harry Vaughan and Edward Ray mond, convict9 sentenced to the peni tentiary from St. Louis, and George Ryan, a convict sentenced from Kan sas City, were hanged in the County Jail at Jefferson City, Mo., for killing Prison Guard John Clay during a con certed attempt to escape from the penitentiary. E. II.

Mr. Harriman was later released, but his boat wasj tied up. xaie's. crew won tne race after a magnificent struggle by a boat's length, amid intense enthu si asm. , Martin B. Rice, of Davidson county has been appointed Warden at the main prison. Theterm of the Incum bent, Capt. Luke McMeneway, will expire on next Saturday, the same day that Commissioner Hartford Is to be succeeded by Henry B. Morrow, and on that date Mr. Rice will be induct ed into office. He will also at the same time receive the title of '-Captain,' that title being a part of the perqul sites of the office. Mr. Morrow wil receive the title of "Colonel," since the higher rank always goes with the office of commissioner. In fact, every body at the penitentiary wears a mil itary rank, and this fact, no doubt accounts for the numerous applicants for places there.

America has from time to time been accused of being unduly pom pous that she claims all in sight, the largest, sinalIest,longe8t, short est, richest, most beautiful, as the case may be, of everything, and that she the United States,f that is has even appropriated to her individual use a designation to which Canada and Mexico .had equal title "America." But then, after all, doesn't she back up most of her claims de liver the goods? Of course, it might be argued that a lace hand kerchief might be worth more than a blanket ; but a citizen feels that he at least has breathing space when he reflects that Uncle Sam dooryard embraces 3,026,789 miles square a slight increase, by the way, over the 827,844 square Reelfoot Catch Red Fish, Red Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Reelfoot Lake Fish of all kinds at JC.

I have been requested to name a day for the people of the town to unite and clean up not only their own prem ises, but the streets and alleys as well. Mr. J. P.

Io pursuance of the above plan, I name TUESDAY, JULY 9, as the day when all may work together and not only clean up their own premises, but cut the weeds down In front of their property along the sidewalks as well. Jno. T. Walker, Mayor. miles 01 law. in that same year of 1800 the population was 5,308, 483, a number which would scarce ly be missed from the 84,154,009 of the present day. We don't fee crowded in most sections now with "Zi.l inhabitants to toe square mile : so that it must have seemec a bit lonely with 6.41 at the begin ning of the nineteenth century. And when it comes to the al mighty dollar, there is where America certainly shines: She is worth $107,104,211,071 in real or or personal property, or $1,310.11 per capita. , If you haven't got yours, try to save it up out of the $2,736,646,628 in circulation, which is $32.32 for every member of the family. If you are partic ular you may choose it out of the $668,655,075 of gold ; the $188,- 630,872 of silver; the $516,561,840 of gold certificates ; the $471,520, 054 cf siver certificates; the $335, 940,220 of United States notes; the $548,001, 238of national banknotes, or in small change from the $7, 337,320 drifting about. It is true that there is an inter est-bearing debt of $895,159,140, ... t . ... . tne annual interest on which is $23,248,064 ; but no one worries much about that, when it amounts only to 28 cents a year to the cit izen and the peanut crop promises to be good. Besides, certain prov ident members of the community have deposited $4,055,873,637 in national banks, and 8,027,192 have put $3,299,544,601 in the saving banks. Then there are the farmers. There are 10,438,219 of therewith 5,739,657 farms worth $20,514, 001,838, the products of which are worth $3,764,177,706, and who feed not only themselves and the rest of the 84,000,000 Americans, but send 117,718,657 bushels of wheat, to say nothing of 13.919, 048 barrels of flour to foreigners. The foreigners pay $62,061,856 for the corn, and $28,757,517 and $59, 106,869 for the wheat and flour. That the National Government will be able to keep up the pay ment of interest on the public debt without having to call on the individual citizen for his 28 cents, is evident when it is considered that although the net ordinary ex penses of the federal . machine amount to $544,746,223, there is an income of $594,454,122. That our "infant industries" are at least promising babes, is evi denced by the fact that there are wheels going round in 216,202 manufacturing establi s h m e n t s which turn out goods to the sum of $14,802,147,087. That there were a few sickly youths, how ever, is proved by the fact that 10,682 passed away last year, for which there was mourning to the tune of $119,201,515. We always were a "scrapping lot, and have always been willing to pay for it. For the contests already held we have paid $3,459, 860,311 in pensions, and are pay ing $141,034,562 a , year now, to say nothing of the $117,946,692 to the army and $110,474,264 to the navy those are their yearly sal 1 anes wno are Kept on hand in case of need. Americans seem fond of riding, and for this purpose aud to haul her freight operate some 217,341 miles of railroads. Of this oppor tunity for rapid shifting of scenery 745,447,671 citizens took advan tage last year, conveyed in 30,777 cars. The freight hauled one mile amounted to 187,375,621,537 tons, which required 1,767,657 cars. If these freight cars were coupled into one train it would make very neat belt for the earth at the equator. We had 23 miles of rail road in 1830. We appear to write a few more etters in these days than in 1800 ; at least at that time there were only 903 postoffices, against 65,600 at the present time, which bring in receipts of $167,932,783, as against $280,804 for that ancient year. The expenses of operating the postal service are somewhat in excess of. the receipts, being $178, 440,779, but this isn't bad, consi enng the fact that 478,711 miles of . post routes are covered, and that a letter might travel the whole distance for two cents. But even the mail doesn't move quickly enough for the American, so he sends 96,987,140 telegrams a year, or something over one to v X '. . .'-.. :" HARDY y I GRAIN N;!

The principal danger is from the accumulation of tough, tenacious mucus in the throat, choking the child, or the prolonged and violent cough ing, rupturing the tiny air cells of the lungs. When neglected complications arise. That is, it leads to other and more dangerous diseases, convulsions, pneumonia, etc., which often results fatally.
