The Knights of Labor indorse Jieece, AVorthington and Springer, democrats and Payson, republican, for re election to congress. Now that Charles A. Dana has paid the bill for embalming the body of Gen. Grant, Col. Fred Grant steps to the front and says he will refund the money. If the colonel had paid the bill in the first place, . he would have saved much unpleasant scandal. The republican press is busily engaged in the endeavor to frame excuses for the failure of the ruin which it predicted two years ago as sure to result from demos cratic success to appear according to prophecy. The political Wigginses who write for republican papers are compelled to admit that they were false prognostis cators. Bob l'p Serenely ! Macomb Eagle. One James K. Magie bobs up serenely and is anxious to put his finger into the Eleventh district pie. His latest move is worthy of his cowardly spirit. Hidin, behind tbe mm iU pluine of "An ex-Sol dier' Magie writes down from Chicago to the Hock Island Union, abusing Con uressman Neece and copiously quoting from the Enale during war times. The poor old Jvurtial of this city copies the letter with an apology to its readers for the "chestnut." Considering the fact tb:tt the poor old Jourmii has vigorously been, thumbing its tiles of the Eayle be' lore every election, and that the editor ials of Nelson Ebbott havedone duty to "lire the loyal heart" every subsequent campaign, the apology was merited We have uudoubted evidence as to the authorship of this bombastic letter, com ing so anonymously from Chicago. Mr. Maine has even boasted on tbe streets of that citv of its authorship, and has ad mitted that for a consideration his "inttoo ence" will go to Mr. Gest in this cam li"n. .Just what other interest he could have in the campaign is not so clear, but this may be readily surmised. He is a man of decided greenback pros clivities lie longs for greenbacks will do anvthint: for greenbacks but is not unalterably opposed to national bank notes, or any other valuable consideration for his "iuttooence." Like other mean men he became Bleeped in dishonesty when editing the Macomb Journal. He is heartily loathed by every republican leader in the state, was ignomiuously kicked out of the office of slute printer exoert by Gov. S. M. Cullom, and would be hissed out of any decent, respectable company of men on whom he might ven ture to intrude himself. Or late years he has associaled with the worst bums in Chicago. He drifted down down until he at length became a windy apostle of tbe red Hag. and consorted with tbe vilest of red-mouthed socialists; but when he attempted to u3e this element to further his own political desires, even the pool, ignorant socialistic Poles and Bo hemians had enough manhood left to turn their barks upon him and to remain away from the meetings where be was advertised to speak. Thi9, then, is the fellow who cl.itus the privilege of advising with the soldier voters of this congressional district; the fellow has lime and again tried to play Hie Judas with those who had befriended himiii lime of sorest need; the fellow who Las nevertheless tact enough to hide his epistolary spew under an anoymous signature, claiming fellowship with the boys whom he disgraced, well knowing that bad his true name been signed to tbe document It would only meet with op probrium as the filthy tfrothings of an idle malcontent. A charlatan in journalism a cotruptionist in office, an adventurer in politics and a crank in opinions, a w litical laborer for hire, an anarchist from policy and an informer from fear, chronic grumble in the ranks of the re publican party whose tongue has inces santly wagged in abuse of every man prominent in republican state counsels such a man is James K. Magic, Mr. Gest allv in the present campaign. Do the re publicans of the Eleventh district like the man whom Gest has hired to flaunt the bloody shirt? An old story. Look at a human be ing when under tb influence of that ter rihle torture, rheumatism. Trival symp. toms were neglected until the disease be came established,, whereas all the long sutlering could have been prevented by the prompt Use of Salvation Oil, costing VOlj f8 BelUS 8 nrJt"? ' nil I'-TB THE C0CAI5E HABITS The Worst Slavery Hw-Jievv Kev- elatlOBS of Power. Clncinnattl Timea-Slar. When cocaine was discovered tbe med ical world exclaimed "thank heaven!" But useful as it is, it is also dangerous, especially when its use is perverted from the deadening oi pain tor surgical opera tions, to the stimulation and destruction of tba bumaa body. Its first effects arc soothing and captivating, bat the tbrall dom is the most horrible slavery known to humanity. 3. L. Btaphens, . oi Leoaooa. u., was interviewed by our reporter yester day at tbe Grand hotel and during the conversation the doctor said: "The co caine habit is a thousand times worse than the morphine and opium habits, ana ou would be astonished, nesaia, if you knew how frightfully the habit is increas ing." What are its enectsr It is the worst constitution wrecker ever known. It rums the liver and Kid neys in half a year, and when this work done, the strongest -conatuuuou o ucctimbs." "Do you know of Dr. Underbill s case hers in Cincinnati?" That leading physician who tiecame a ictim of the cocaine habit? Its. His case was a sad one. but the habit can be cured. I have rescued many a man from a worse condition .'' What worse than Dr. Underbill sV Indeed, sir, Ur so. Justin M. Hall, A. M., M. D., president of tl:e state Board of Health of Iowa, and a famed practitioner, and Alexander Neil, M. I)., professor of surgery in the Columbus Jiedical college, and president ot IDe Academy of medicine, a man widely known, Rev. W. P. Clancey of Indian apolis, Iud., from personal experience in opium eating, etc., can tell you ot the kind of success our torm ot treatment wins, and so can H. C. Wilson, formerly of Cincinnati, who is now associated with Would you mind letting our readers into the secret of your methods?" Well, young man, you surely hae a good bit of assurance to ask a man to give bis business away to the public; but I won t wholly dissapoint you. i nave treated over 20,000 patients. In com mon with many eminent physicians, I, for years made a close study of the effects of the habits on the system and the or gans which they most severely attack. Dr. Hall. Dr. Neil and Mr. Wilson, whom I have mentioned, and hundreds of others, equally as expert, made many simuiar experiments on their own oehall. We each found that these drugs worked most destructively in the kidneys and liver; in fact, finally destroyed them. It was then apparent that no cure could be effected until those organs could be restored to health. We recently exhaust ed the entire range of medical science, ex penmentmg with all known remedies tor these organs, and as the result of these close investigations we all substantially agreed, though following dinerent lines of inquiry, that the most reliable, scien tific preparation, was Warners sale cure. This was the second point in the discov ery. The third was our own private form of treatment, which of course, we do not divulge to the public. Every case that we have treated first with Warner s safe cure, then with our own private treatment, and followed up again with Warner's safe cure for a few weeks, has been successful. These habits can t be cured without using it, because the habit is nourished and sustained in the liver and kidneys. The habit can be kept up in moderation, howerer. if free use be al so made, at the same time, of that great remedy." Yes, it is a world famed and justly celebrated specific! Like many other physicians, i used to deride tbe claims made fot it, but I know now for a fact thai it is the world's greatest blessing having sovereign power over hitherto in curable diseases of the kidneys and liver, and when I have said that, young man, i have said nearly everything, for most diseases originate in. or are aggravated by a depraved condition ot the kidneys. ' People do not realize this, because. singular as it may seem, the kidneys may be in a very advanced stage oi decom position, and yet owing to the fact that there are but few nerves of sensation in them the subject will not experience much pain therein. On this account thousands of people die every year of kidney disease unknowingly. They have so called disorders of the head, of the heart and lungs and stomach, and treat them in vain, for the real cause of their misery is deranged kidneys and if they were restored to health the other disor ders would soon disappear." Dr. Stephens's experience, tuat can be confirmed by many thousands whom he has treated, adds only more emphasis to tbe experience of many hundreds of thousands all over the world, that the remedy he refers to is without any doubt the most beneficient discovery ever givs en to humanity. THE RACE COURSE IN JAPAN. Waiting for tbe CouimencementInspect' Ins the Tad dock Kan nine After Dark. The Japanese are devoted admirers of the race horse. Between the stand and' the race course is a wide turfed inclosure, at one end of which an excellent Japanese bond is aia cooTsins the music of the litest French operetta. Though it is yet cnly midday. while the racing is not to begin till 12:30, the stand and inclosure are fairly tilled with JaiH and foreigners of all sorts, and very queer do many of the former look, especially those who have been rash enough to assume foreign clothes, instead of sticking to their own comfortable and pretty dress. More especially it is to be regretted when a charm ing and graceful little Japanese ladyalan donr; her own most picturesque attire for the fashion: of Europe, in which she only looks ms inil ieant and awkward, While waiting for the commencement of tie sport, let us go and inspect the paddock Itehmd the stand, it is a grand, roomy spa burrounded with neat little stables, at tbe doors of which groujw are congregated dis cussing the chances of the occupants. Of letting there is none. Belling lotteries are held at the hotels in Tokio or Yokohama two or three davs before the races. The saddling liell has just rung. We are just in time to see H. M. the mikado arrive, sitting dressed m a dark uniform in his well turnedout landau, nnd surrounded bv an escort of lancers, who look smart enough in their green and red uniforms. H. M. ascends to the royal Itox to the somewhat dismal utrains of the Japanese national air. Close behind bira arrives the one and only four-in-hand in Japan, owned by an eccentric American. The dark-painted drag and well matched team of dark ponies look smart enough. And now five ponies emerge from the paddock for the first race. Few of the Japanese ponies exceed fourteen and-a-balf hands, but many of them arc neat. well built animals, inclined to be weak be hind, but with a fair enough turn of speed. They are nearly all ridden by Japanese jocks, who ore very light and lair Horsemen, hut in clined to get excited and lose their heads, nnd flog their mounte long after the race fa over. It is not my intention to describe the racing, most of which would be considered very poor sport anywhere else, though some of the finishes were really good, one resulting in dead heat Suffice to say that a programme of nine races per diem was successfully carried to a conclusion in three days. A vast amount of time is always lost at the starts, and tbe lagt race each day is often run in the dark, so much so that I have seen a groom run into the middle of the course at the finish, holding a big lantern in his hand, in order that the iuda'e might see which animal passed his box first Wonderful to relate, tbe ponies did not seem to object to this proceeding in the leant -xohobn Cor.

The report of the committee on credential? having been adopted, a petition was rent from the Minnesota State association on the emiebme nt of worship.

The petition said thai the form of Congregational worship at pre ent was very meager and very bare. The result was that numbers bad gone over t the Kpiscopal church. After a nttle discussion it was decided to name a committee to report on this subject at the next council. The Rev. Dr. Goodwin of Chicago pre sented the report of the committee of tin American board. The report dwelt upon thi. necessity of more activity and generosity or. the part of the church in this mat tea. The committee appointed to consider thr paper read by tlie Kev. Dr. IVntecost upon city evangelization reported favorably upon it, and a committee was named to confer with the Home Missionary society for th purpose of taking active steps in the work ot evangelization. The KpUeopalfans. Chicago, Oct. 20. The Kpiscopal conven tion spent most of Monday in discussion ot the question of providing for a court of ap peals. Most of the remarks were vigorous!. in favor of the measure. Judge AV ildur, ol M innesota, and J udge Sheffey. of V ir ginia, alone opposing it.

A special to The News from Orange, Tex., savs: The steamer Lamar returned here Monday even ing from Sabine Pass with sixty additional sufferers, one-half of w hom will go to Beau mont as soon as transportation can be ob tained. The balance w ill remain here in care of the local relief committ4es. Ten additional bodies have been found and were buried m to tlie time that the Lamar K'ft Sabine at noon Monday.

H. mPHEHa'COUBlH I am first coiuin of tbei lati;Ex-Gov- ernor Atexandef II. 8iepUtns;; and have been postal clerk on different railroads since 1868. For ten years I have been sufferer from a cancer on my face, which grew worse until the discharge of matter became profuse and very offen sive. 1 became thoroughly discusted with blood purifiers and pronounced them humbugs, as I fasd tried many without relief. Finally I was induced to use B. B. B. which was about tbe 1st of February, and continued its use until the latter part April. I be offensive disc ha tee ue creased at once and the hardness round the cancer disappeared. It improved my general health and I rapidly gained flesh and strength. The discbarge Gradually decreased and tfce cancer became less and less in size until nothing remains except scar to tell tbe tale of a once danger ous cancer. All who nave seen me since have commenced the use of B. B. B. bear testimony of my great improvement. and the scar on my tare shows that it cured the cancer. I And that B. B. B. comes squarely up to what it is recom mended, and 1 cannot say too much in praise of this wonderful medicine. I avc tried them all, but B. B .15. stands at tbe top as a blood purifier. The above is copied from the Athens (Ga.) Banner-Watchman, being the vol untary language of Mr. Jan.es A. Greer, 'Mr. Greer is an honest, upright citizen of Athens, who had a bad cancer, and his numerous friends thought that he could not live very long, as the cancer was gradually sapping the foundation of his constitution, but now looks well and hearty." zauAinsr is Several physicians have pronounced my disease blood poison, cauaed bv paint or lead in the paint, but they could not cure me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles of a largely advertised blood uiedi cine, which did me no more good than so much water. I have used only two bottles of B. B. B. and am proud to say that I have re ceived greater benefit from them than from the eighteen, and am uow rapidly recoverim;. There is no qeestion about he superiority of 15. B. B. over all blood remedies. 215 Reynolds street . V. H.Woodv. mo. Augua, Ga., April 21st, All who desire full information about the cause and cure of Flood Poisons, Scrofula and Scrofulous Swellings.
