STISSON & Co. , Portland , aiaine. THE Boston "Mayflower" bloomed again most beautifully , last Wednesday , the 8th inst. THE wily , murderous Geronimo has at last really been "taken into the fold' ' by General Miles' forces much to the disgust of the "phunny para- grapher" of the enterprising daily. FEMALE suffrage received quite a boom , recently , in the person of Miss Belva Lockwood , who fired a man , who had intruded into her office , out through the window , and then had the bad , bad man arrested for breaking the Avindow. SENATOR PAUL has finally come out with a denial of the charges made against him by the Bee. But we fear that Jim's political goose is cooked be- ydnd the possibility of a resurrection , at , this late date. The denial is not enough. ! I AM in favor of putting a plank into the republican platform in favor of prohibition. I am in favor of the republican party shouldering prohibi tion , and I know that in time the party would conquer under that banner. " Senator Frye. WITH due humility we would simply suggest to our esteemed young friend Ashwill , of the Stratton Herald , that while we really have no time to crack his "brass collar organ chestnut , " he errs most egregiously as to our posi tion in the Brown matter. Almost any able republican in the district can de feat him. but don't waste any valuable ammunition : you will have use for it all. Ouu esteemed contemporary , the Culbertson Sun , relates the following "good one" on an old postmaster of the Driftwood country in that county : "It is told of a certain P. 31. , who a num ber of years ago , had charge of the Drift wood postofiice , that a letter came to his of fice directed to one , John Smith , Driftwood , Hitchcock county , .Neb. , United States of America. He read the directions carefully and with au air of doubt prevailing his mind as to the proper destination of the letter , gave l the. following opinion : This is Drift wood postofiice , that's all risjlit ; this is Hitchcock , county and that's all right , and this is Nebraska , but where in h 1 is the United States of America. THE and temperance press is daily burdened with accounts of failures of prohibitory laws , in their enforcement. Possibly many , if not most , of these instances citedjire correct in the fact , if not in the degree. But where is the man who can with complacency see his fellow man drawn into the horrible Charybdis of intemperance and destruc tion , without raising the voice of cau tion and interposing the helping hand. Whose bosom harbors the heart so ad amantine that the wail of the widow1 and the beseeching looks of sad-eyed , poverty-stricken , misery-burdened or phans cannot pierce it ? In view of all this , who dares to stand in the way of any attempt to ameliorate the condition of humanity in this respect ? B. 15. Burley , proprietor of the Burley House , Belle Plaiue , Iowa , relates his exper ience as follows : "Ihavehadtheopportunity of testing the merits of Chamberlain's Colic , Cholera and Diarrluea llemedy in several in stances in severe and dangerous cases of cholera inoibus. From my expeiience in the use of this medicine I can recommend it with pleasure. Every one traveling should have it and no family should be without it. " Sold by Willey& Walker.
