From the "contingent expenses"
accounts of the United States sen
ate for the session of 1809-10 soir.c
body gleaned not long ago a few
curious items. Among other things
charged were various gallons—109
in all—of a liquid called "sirup,"
which cost $3 per gallon. The un
derstanding is that this "sirup" was
used in the compounding of a pop
ular senatorial drink known as
"switchel." As to the nature of the
staff nothing definite is stated in
the records. There are items of ac
count earlier in the session referring
to two-quart decanters presumably
for use in holding the "sirup."
Switchel" is unknown to nation
al legislators in these days. Be
sides, there are certain ruies of a
prohibitory nature concerning what
congressmen may drink in the halls
of th6 capitol. But along with sen
atorial courtesy runs freely the fam
ous senate lemonade, upon which the
reports just presented by the secre
tary show for the last fiscal year
an expenditure of $318.97—about $8
less than the 1809-10 cost of "sirup."
Lest anyone suspect the savor of ec
onomy here, the item hastily added
that last year the honorable sena
tors also drank up something over
96,500 in mineral waters at the pub
lic expense.
As averaged up in the figures giv
en it was a thirst of $76 per man
which distinguished the Fifty-ninth
senate. As the "upper house" of
1809-10 contdined thirty-four mem
bers the "sirup" cost per senator was
less than $10. There will have to
be further particulars concerning the
Ingredients of "switchel" and their
value' before one may measure in
dollars and cents the saving forced
upon legislative Washington by regu
lations ill the Interest of abstinence.

'Tig a? pity and, pity Is 'tl3 true
'"'that the democratic party in this
'county of Brown is woefully weak.
i.The spirit of democracy has left the
hearts of many of those who bear
the name of political descendants of
'Thomas Jefferson. Instead of advo
cating the splendid principle laid
down by their political father of
|"Equal rights to all and special priv
ileges to none", they themselves, be*
.cause of their pe^onal interests,
'have seen it expedient to advocate
the opposite. And though they art
still bearing the name of "democrat",
they are. unworthy of it.
There Is another class of democrats
in Brown county and though they
are none too numerous, it is to
them that this editorial is addressed.
fThe principles advocated by the ad
ministration wing of the republican
party in this state are in sympathy
with the principles that nestle in
the heart of every good and true
eon of Thomas JefTerson. The "in
surgents", as they are called, have
by the principles they enunciated in
their last state platform and by their
acts in the last legislature, proven
^hat they stand for equal rights for
all men. This desire for equality and
justice for all citizens of this great
^{Commonwealth, was shown in the an
ti-corporation legislation carried
'through at the last session of the
legislature. The question for the
'jaext campaign is "Shall this work

the eleventh hour, it is noticeable
that the world at large is not much
impressed with it. Men do not un
dertake to argue, the point. They do
not pretend to settle It. They sim
ply leave it to the theologians as an
abstraction until it confronts them
as a practical question, and then they
act upon their doubts.
No one can say, of course, what
influence Orchard's fearful story
might have had on the jury if he had
appeared merely as a frightened cut

How They Pester
There's no comfort in a room where flies are buzzing around.
Flies are more than a nuisance they are "pestiferous". Science
has proved them to be disease bearers and therefore a menace to
health. The little fly that "scoots" past you when you open the
door may have come directly from some house where there's a con
tagious disease. Keep your home free from
Vv- ib- FLIES
By using some of the fly destroyer our stock contains.
The comfort and safety to be derived from anyone of these is
worth many times the cost. •,
