THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23 1885.
JOHN W POTTER. Monday, Novkmkkk 23, 1880. Tub editor of the Cleveland IjmUt refers with characteristic energy to "that old fraud Sara THden" end "llist foul murderer of Union prisoners Filfcliutfh Lee." The world ought to be recun . strutted for the eppeciul benefit of ti e only perfect man now on earth. We ru ler, of course, to the editor of the Cleve land Leahr. EumtitH can he edifying seven times a week if they choose while the minister delivers one discourse. Add to that the size of the audit one and the receptive state of mind, and what fields are there not lying fallow? A well known preuch er when questioned in regard to the num ber of his hearers, said: "About 2,HK listen to me in church; through the news -pspers my congregation may be 200,000.' The trouble with newspapers generally is that they are too diffuse. There are few of them 1 hut would not be benefited, In cant phrase, by judicious "boiling down," In order to inoculate with the virus of knowledge, at least the attend ance of an idea is needful; a deluge of words weakens the effect. Life is too short to spend it mainly in meandering through columns of commonplace. The attempt even to digebt such rations is enough to create mental dyspepsia. The necessity as well as the characteristic of the age is concentration. Tins southern papers cannot conceal their dislike for Mr. Cable. The Charles ton Newt, one (,f the most liberal of them, saya: "After being wined and dined by the white people of New Lugland on ac count of his fuutastical descriptions of social life and his ultra opinions in regard to race relations in the south, it is natu ral that Mr. George W. Cable should be taken up and lionized by the colored peo plo in turn, lie must be pretty well con vinced by this time that, nothing meets so prompt or profitable returns in New Eng land as a little judicious fanaticism, but we doubt very much that he feels perfect ly satisfied in view of the position in which he now finds himself.' Tiik sale of an open faced gold watch once belonging to Major Ami re . and market! "Jol'n Andre, 1774 "tor the huh: of 50(1, shows with what interest that romantic liritish ppy is still regard ed. Certain events in Andre's life keep alive this inletTBt. lie was affianced to a Miss Ifnnora Hneyd when he left Eng lanl in 1771 to serve as an officer in n regiment in America. He was then twen ty years of age . 1 lis conduct as a soN dier gained him rapid promotion on the staff of Sir Henry Clinton, who in 1780, raised him to the rank of Major and Ad- juUmtsfJeneral of his forces. It was while he was occupying this position he wuk sent by Clinton to negotiate with Benedict Arnold for the surrender of West Point. Andre exceled in music and drawing, find among hia other ac complish nu ntrv possessed considerable poetical talent. He retained u potrait of his first love, Miss Syned, in his mouth when ho was stripped of everything at the tinic of hia capture. One of his hist letters wast to this lady, who had died without her lover's knowledge some .time before. These and other circumstances caused the unhappy fate of Andre to arouse universal sympathy at the time of his execution. The whole British army went into mourning for htm. In 1821 the British Government removed his remains from the banks of the Hudson to Westminster Abbey, where a mural monument was erected to his memory. It is one of the noted monuments of the Abbey and is much inquired for by visi tors. Major Andre was Jtweuty-nine at the time of his death. THE MUGWUMPS. A bird of gorgeous plumage is the pea cock, and very impressive when it struts around in the full piide of its fuss and feathers, but as a songster it U not a suc cess and the smallest rooster in the barn yard cau whip it in a fair tussle. The professional mugwump is a bird of the same kind, gaudy and pretentious, but of irritating voico and swagger. A week ago he undertook to boss the whole po litical aviary and the floor was wiped . ivith him. Now that he is down and be raggled, he is heoted and buffeted and pecked at from all sides. The democrats, whom he undertook to discipline, deride him, while the republicans, whom he un dertook to aid, condemn him and sneer at him as a source of weakness rather than of strength, lie has been tried and found wanting. Last year the mugwump papers per ceived a strong current of independent sentiment and sympathy setting towards Cleveland. They fell in with it and at once concluded that they had originated it and could direct it whither they willed. They made themselves in many ways so offensive and bossy as to alieniate more votes than they ever could attract. Despite- them, rather than because cf them, Cleveland was elected, whereupon they instantly and complacently declared, ' VVe did it. We are the balance of power and we propose to run this administration." Pulled up with a sense of their own su periority nnd importance, thay set out out this year to dominate the democratic party in New York state and to dictate who should be its nominees. But the democratic party was in no mood to allow a very small stump of tail to wag a very liirqe and henlthy dog; no it simply ignored the mug wump ultimatum. The result is plain to everybody. The holier-than-thou faction helped Mr. Hill by its measureless vilifi cation of him, which aroused the democ racy throughout the state. At the same time it injured Mr. Davenport by its illog ical ami idiotic assertions that a vote f r him would be a vote expressing conrK dence in the administration.

A Boatoa Mau Clio ken nte Dead Wire i and Tell ifer to Get Supper. Boston, Mass., Nov. 23. Five cases are on record of a man assaulting a dead woman, yet Thomas Carrol, living on Sweet street, In the Highland district, waa shown in the district court Friday to have attained that distinction. He was arrested last Hunday charged with murdering hhi wife. Friday he was arraigned, when Suau Brown testified that Saturday nijht about 11:30, while dozing on a lounge in Carrol.-! rooms, she felt a pressure upon her body and ascer tained tbat Mr& Carrol had latd down, her body partly resting upon bar. Everything at tbe time waa very quiet. Bhe was dozing for gorao time after discovering tlu presence of Mrs. Carrol, when she wan awaked by a blow upon one of her eyes. She got up and told Carrol, who was standing near by, that he bad made a mistake; that she was not his wife. Carrol then called to bis wife to get up and get his sup per. Ktceivtng no answer, he placed hiv hand around his wife'a throat and raised her up ajainst the wall at the back of the lounge, at the uame time shaking her and insisting tbat she get taU supper. An autopsy revealed the fact that Carrol' wife was dead from heart-dsiease when he assaulted her, aud tbe brute was released. The DeoUlon Upholds Durham. Washinhtox City, Nov. 33.

Mr. iJavitl Cl:iypool, lbrmerly yereant' at-Armsot'tiie New Jersey Senate, unti now Notary l'ublie at Cethtrvillo, Cumberland Co., N.

My work (hhip sniitliinKHvas very straining on nie with my weak constitution, and i wuh rapidly Knmg to the rrave. While iu this condition I commenced iishur Mishlcr's Herb Hitters, and it saved my life. loentisc it was so difficult to pet it in this little place, and I had improved m much, I stopped tukiup; it for a time, nnd the result iu that I have commenced Koinj; rapidly down hill again. Somehow, Wishlur's Herb Hitters gives appetite and strengthens and builds nie up as nothing else dues, and 1 must have a dozen lndtlca at once. lTse this commu nication as you please, nnd if any one wants to be convinced of its truth, let them write me and 1 will make affidavit to it, for 1 owe my life to Mishler's Herb Hitters." TheBecretof the almost invariable relief and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar rhoea, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and liver complaints, when Mishler's Herb Hitters is used, is that it contains einiple, harmless, nnd yet powerful ingredients, that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver, and through them strengthens and invigor ates the whole system. Purely vegetable in its composition; prepared by a regular physician; a standard medicinal prepara tion; endorsed by physician nnd drug gists.
