two veterinary suigeons who failed to cure
him. I was one day reading the advertisement
o Kendall s Spavin Cure in the Chicago Ex

bottles, I took them all and thought 1 would
give it a thorough trial, I u.sedjit according todi
rectio.is and t lie fourth day the colt ceased to
be lame, aud the lumi had disappeared. I
used but one bottle and the colts limbs are as
free from lumps and as tiuooth as any horse in
the state. He is entirely cured. The cure was

To whom all communications for this depart
ment aliouid be addressed.
In conncctieii with our tempera. ico
work, I think we should any ;i word
in condemnation of the excessive usu
of tobacco. I have heard men say
tint with tliein siMok'ng was a neces-
sitj, a cure jne.scribi'd hy their physic
ians for dyspepsia. This may l so;
in people of sluggish temperament
and slow habit of thought, perhaps the
moderate use of tobacco may not be
injurious, but as far as my observa
tion eoes. an excessive smoker is never
a successful business man, the most
alert and prosperous man of business
is one whose faculties are not obscured
by tlie use of liquor, or dulled Ly the
narcotio influence of tobacco.
The habit o cigarette-smoking is
becoming almost universal among our
boys; it is not uncommon to see little
fellows not over seven or eight years
old, pulling away on our streets at the
nasty stuIT in the p:is i ons paper.
The man who sells cigarettes to
these little chaps must be hard up for
business, it is as bad as selling them
slow poison, for it is a vile compound
which Will sap their strength ai d
make them old before I heir time.
This warning against the already
widely extended and increasing
habit of cigarette smoking among
boys and young men, should be herald
ed far and wide, and made a3 impres
sive as possible. It seems not unlike
ly that the great evil of tobaccc
poisoning may, at no distant day, be
come so threatening to the health and
efficiency of the boys and young men
as to require in 1 his country ,as already
iu Germany, government interposition
to check its progress.
"SOOTIIIXO iYItCP" FOR WEAK IIVS
( . BANDS.
Cf all the poor excuses for using to
bacfo, the most shameless is that of
the man who says that he left it oil
once or twice, but Irs wife urged him
to t tke it up again, becaufe it made
him "so nervous" to be without it, and
the wife's added comment is. that her
husband was "really so ill-natured
without his tobacco tha: there was no
iiviug iu the house with hiin." It is
bad enough for a poor working woman
to be compelled to fe-ive "soothing
syrup" to her crying baby, so that she
can have a quiet time at, her wass.ing
or sewiu.ij; Lt wlu i. ,i,.a io
beyond all hope of decency, unless his
ill-nature is kept within bounds by
his being half stupi.'ied by the fumes
of tobacco, w hy well, that tobacco
fills its place a great deal better than
that husband does hi?.
ATJ1LETF.S, ALCOHOL, AND TOBACCO
The Glasgow (Scotland) Mail quotes
a Birmingham gentleman as having
been at considerable trouble in col
lecting the testimony of athletes with
respect ;o the use of alcohol and to
bacco. It is stated that the majority
of the Queen's priz. winners at Wim
bledon, most of the leading oarsmen,
including Trickett and Ilanlan, and
the distinguished American marks
men, Mr. Partello and Dr. Carver,
"consider the less stimulants and nar
cotics a human being indulges in the
better for his physical health." Of
Mr. Partello, "who lately made 224
points out of a possible 223 at long
r.ieges, it is said that he has always
been a total abstainer, and that lie has
now given up tobacco as well. Ser
geant Okey, champion marksman of
New Zealand, attributes his success to
his having been a teetotaler all his
life, and to his being a nou-smoker. If
for these exceptional achievements of
athletes and others, abstinence from
alcohol aud tobacco is found to be
essential, it is quite reasonable to con
clude that both are not only unneces
sary, but injurious for other people.
There is a noticeable and most grati
fying teudency on the part of the
me.lic.ii profession in Great liiitiun in
the din ctiou of 1 he disuse ot alcohol.
A very significant utterance, indicat
itiH this liiiils expression in ihr Lon
!!! Lancet, a leading and influential
Uic.iical journal, which, iu a review of
tl.tjrar 180, says: "Alcohol, as a
general therapeutic agent, is being sul
jeelfril '. 'ei w iiv ie to most suspicious
treatment by physicians and by bo irds
of guardians alike. It lias still fri nds
w ho think it indispensable either to
preserve health or to cure disease; but
the wisest physicians show themselves
chary either of taking or recommend
ing much of it. We commend this
noteworthy declaration by the Lancet,
the leading medical journal of Great
Britain, to the thoughtful considera
tion of American physicians, who are,

The butter-dealers of Chicago, it
appears from the Times of that city,
have no scruples against signing a
pledge. Large numbers have signed
the following: That we "do hereby
solemnly pledge ourselves to do all in
our power to discountenance and pro
hibit, by all legal means, the manu
facture and sale of adulterated but
ter"; and, fui tliernifcie, that they will
not " manufacture, buy, sell, or cause
to be manufactured, bought, or sold,
or offered for sale," any adulterated
butter under the name of "oleomar
garine or any othc-r name. And yet,
so far as we know, these Chicago butter-dealers,
who thus solemnly take a
"pledge," are "manly" men. Would
they be any less "manly" if they
should apply the same principle and
method to the traffic in poisonous, and
therefore injurious, alcoholic beverages.
The Siiewsful Fight of Jllaino In HU
Correspondence of tho Philadelphia Press.
Eearly this year, and before much
had been done in politics, the friends
of James 0. Blaine were looking over
the state to find some spot whre a
distinctive contest in his behalf could
be made, as a test of his strength with
tho masses. They finally selected the
Thirty-second senatorial district, com
posed of the counties of Adams and
Cumberland: It was democratic hy
2,000 majority, and it wuld seem,
therefore, that it was rather n singular
place to make a test case ot this kind.
There was, however, a reason which
far outweighed the circumstance of a
democratic majority. This section
was the home of the ancestors of Mr.
Blaine, und traditions concerning both
himself und them. The greater rea
son was, however, that iu this place,
the meti onolis of this senatorial dis
trict, there li ves a man who Is one of
his most powerful friends and ardent
admirers. His candidacy alone would
be significant aud stand as a great deal
for Mr. Blaine in making such an
isMie. Therefore, this district was
chosen to make a test of Mr. Blaine's
strength with the people, and his
earnest friend, James W. Bosler, was
asked to become the senatorial candi
date for the purpose named. As for
himself, his quiet habits mako the
hurly burly of politics distasteful to
him, and his large business interests
naturally stood in tho way of his en
tering public life. But his peculiar
relations to the Plumed Knight made
him an all important factor in the
test case the friends of Mr. Blaine
desired to make before the people of
this state at this election. The sena
torship, as it appears from close ob
servation, was a secondary considera
tion with both him and his friends
from the day the campaign opened
until it closed. He made little or no
canvass, but tho people drifted to his
support upon the direct issue of Blaine
vs. Anli-Blaine, and brought about
this surprising result.
FOU Oil AGAINST BLAINE.
Early in the contest the democrats
were not slow to observe this signifi
cant feature of the campaign iu this
district, and at once turned their best
energies to keep the members of their
party in the tiaces. Through such
astute leaders as Wallace, Randall and
Hersel, the district was Hooded with
personal letters to democrats urging
them lo stand by Wagner, the demo
cratic candidate. They assured them
of the evil effects of electing Mr.
Bosler from such a strong democratic
district, iudjMi.iasi7.ed the f-ift. h-.t
such a victory w'ouu , valuable tv
Mr. Blaine. The issue for and against
the matchless liader was thus accepted
by the democratic managers. - Mr.
Blaine at once announced his personal
interest in the result of the struggle his
friends were making by writing tlfe
Augusta, Me.. October 24, JS.Si.
James W. Bosler, Eiq : .j
Dear Sin : If I were able lo take
the bluiiip, it would give me the
greatest pleasure to come lo your dis
trict and urge your election as sena
tor. In addition to your eminent fitness
for the position, I am sure every
friend of mine, in Cumberland and
Adams w ill be ready togiye you cordial
and cheerful support in recognition
of the zeal and fidelity with which,
in past political contests, you have al
ways maintained my interests. But
I can only send my good wishes, and
await your election with confidence.
James G. Blaine.
The appearance of this letter in the
public prints left no room for doubt
as to the peculiar character of the
canvass in this district, and of Mr.
Blaine's interest in the result. From
this date the fight began in earnest
and was carried to the end as a direct
appeal to his hold upon Pennsylvan
ians. The answer is more remarkable
than the appeal.as it shows the tem
per of the masses toward him. A
senatorial district democratic by 2.000
majority has been revolutionized and
Mr. Rosier elected upon the unequivo
cal issue above announced elected,
too. in thi.i avalanche of democratic
victory. The peculiarity and im
portance of the contest as it was be
ing made, provoked strong opposition
within as well as without the republi
can party, and the efforts of Wayne
McVeagh and Mr. James, the two
cabinet officers during General Gar
field's administration, vere charged
hosiilitv to Mr. Blaine, were invoked
and given to defeat Mr. Bo Ier. Yet
with this pressure inside the party
and the democratic -efforts without,
he secured a most remarkable triumph
It would stem that with democrats
and republicans alike united, not only
to attest their respect and confidence
for him, but to make manifest the
fact that Mr. Blaine was powerful in
the state of his birth when the people
get an opportunity to speak directly
for him. Naturally, the covert as
saults of these two ex -cabinet officers
of the martyred president, inspired
small men at hom to personal attacks
upon the candidate, and gave the local
democratic papers ammunition with
which they sought to play upon and
arouse the prejudice of their voter3.

The last edition of tha Nebraska

publisher of the News:
EVF.IUJllEKN, Nov. 14, 183.
Thoa. Motion, En.., Puhlishcr Nebraska City
My Old I'ionf.lii I'm end : .lust
twenty-eight years ago to-day your
paper The Nebraska City News
was born in the second story of the
old block house near the crossing of
Fifth and Main streets; and some of
U9 who wero present on that occasion
rejoice with you and Tho News on
this, its 28th birthday.
This being the first newspaper birth
in the then territory of Nebraska, it
was celebrated by a dozen or nn
wise men of the ' east, .who follov
the star of empiro west, ;us well
few greenhorns, like the subscriber,
from tho south who had never seen a
printing ofiice befcro the News made
its appearance. The speeches made
on that occasion were many und
varied, just as the are to-day on
similar occasions, however, all agree
ing that a great city would bo erected
soon, and a country unsurpassed lu
point of fertility fully developed In
fore another decade. In his response
to the press, 8. V. Nuckolls, among
o'.her things, said, "the press is the
civili.er and educator of the people,
and with the aid of tho Nebraska City
News the first paper in the territory,
we shall see a large commercial center
built up here, and the vast plains west
of us occupied by industrious fanners,
who will make the laud blossom as
the rose." Many of us who were
present and heard w hat Mr. NuckolU
said, have lived to see that all li
dieted, and more, have been
realized, and we rejoice to 1.
the Nebraska City
a birthday present. Just what that
present is to be, is a little difficult to
determine Kt this time. If it be a
fine span of horses and carriage, they
will eventually pass away and tho
donor be forgotten. If a five hundred
dollar gold watch and chain, posterity
might fight and quarrel over it after
youtre dead and gone, and I should
hale to b-the cau.se of a feud in tho
Morton family. Should I enclose here
with the requisite amount to balance
my accounts, you would likely cst
the old le!ger away, buy a new one,
and I be forgetten. Ami as you and I
tramped down the dog fennel and
jiinson weeds together at an early
day, I should feel had to know that I
would be remembered by you no more
forever. Hence I will not liquidate
just now. To present you with some
little present, which you will ever keep
iu remembrance of the presentor, is
what puzzles me most, "somewhat."
Eureka I I Here it is ! I send
herewith my check on the Otoe Na
tional Bank for $1,000. This check
will not be honored, and you will al
ways have it, and when you look at it
you will think of me. Your children
will not want it, neither will the
assessor list it for taxation except
for its cash value. Keep it as sacred
as you would other little souvenirs,
and should you ever become in
tightened circumstances, and your
creditors press you, show them this
check, and believe me,
