The Republican members of the
House at last united upon a tariff bill.
All differences hare been settled. All
questions vitally affecting the interests of
the whole country, as the tariff does, di
versity of opinion is inevitable. It was
so on the tariff in 1789, 181G, 1824, 184
and 1S31. At all of these times when
changes were made in custom duties,
compromises were nscessaryand it isnec
essary this ysar.
News comes from Washington that
several American citizens in Peru are in
the most desperate perial. Tiie finances
of that country are at the very lowest
ebb. The paper money issued by the
government is worthless and the revenues
at the custom houses arc collected by
bankers who advanced the funds to pay
the army at the time the city was be
sieged. Nearly all the railroads in Peru
are owned by Americau citizens and the
government in order to secure funds for
its absolute necessities, has seized upon
these roads and is running them for its
own profit against the protests of the
American owners This will give Mr.
Bjyard one more chance to make an ass
of himself in conducting diplomatic ne
gotiations. He will undoubtedly proye
himself to be as cowardly and inefficient
as has already been charged against him.
Hkke is another trenchant reason why
the Mills' free trade bill should not pass.
It is an instrument of general iniquity in
the legislation pending in the House.
Fer instance, there is little doubt that
the river and harbor bill, appropriating
(trying to steal) over $20,000,000, which
passed the House on Monday, was forced
through by trading plunder for "rivers
and harbors" for votes for the Mills'
bill. That is to say, the votes were
bought outright by the immaculate Mills'
reformers. The gross corruption shows
that the whole "reform" crowd are not
only bent on forcing the country into a
condition of commercial misfortune and
financial reaction, but have no hesitation
in perpetrating the most scandalous ex
travagance through official debauchery,
by use of the people's money. The cor
rupt extravagance of these democratic
reformeas was never approached by the
republicans. Turn the rascals out Lin
MB ASHLAND CONVENTION.
The Cass county delegation at Ashland
the other day finally succeeded in voting
solid, doubtless thereby increasing Capt.
Palmer's chancc9 for selection as a dele
gate to Chicago.
The delegation during the entire day
being about equally divided, Messrs.
Polk, Salisbury, Pool, Young, Christian-
son, Clap and Eickhoff, were bitterly op
DOsiiir the nomination of Green: while
Murphy, Ritchie. Wooley, Todd, Baird
and MrKinnon were as jealously favor
ing his nomination; the war was carried
on all day with but little change until
evening, when it became apparent that
the Green Rates combination were on
top. The Cass delegation then agreed
that her full vote might be cast for C. J
Green and (J. O. Hates wuicli resulted in
their election. This will take J. M.
Thurston out of the field and practically

Rut if the Republican party should by
any possibility manage to secure politi
cal control of the Southern Jtats, or
ny Southern State, then the negro prob
Icui, about which we hear bo much,
would assume very lively proportions.
This is ridiculous. The only change
which republican supremacy in the south
would make in the negro problem would
be that the negro would be permitted to
vote whenever and wherever the law al
lowed, and his vote would be counted
for the man for whom it was cast, wheth
er republican or democrat. The repub
licans will never again make any specia
attempt to retain negro support any
where. They did it immediately after
liie war, wlieu the conditions in the south
were different from what they are now.
nut tliey would not do it now it given
the opportunity. If the soutli had sense
enough to put the republican party in
control each 01 its states weuld soon
have a big immigration boom, its popu

rapidly than they can ever do under
democratic supremacy, and tilings,
economically speaking, would hum in

The modes of death's approach are va

that more persons die from disease of the

great house, where the housewife kept her
stores. If be peered curiously about he
would see a certain rather retired shelf on
wbioh would be bunches of herbs and roots,
also bottles of decoctions made thereof.
These were the household remedies, formula
copyrighted by tradition, proprietary to the
family. In the country, where the doctor's
bailiwick was of extended area and where
drue stores were non-existent, everybody
was to a large extent bis own doctor. As e
consequence he wanted to be everybody else's
doctor, while everybody else yearned to oe
A rACCTTY Or AILMENTS.
Alas! Our reiertoire of illnesses was lim
ited, indeed, compared with today. There
was a paucity of available diseases. A man
could not possibly have cerebro spinal men
ingitis: it was not to be had. If he had a
pain in his chest no one soothed his anguish
bv tellin!? him he had nneumonia. The word
pleurisy was remorselessly flung at him.
Diphtheria wa-s uncountable; putrid sore
throat filled that vacuum in the list. If a
man was wheezy and had trouble with his
breathinz the ruzsrod word phthisic was
nailed to him ; no one dreamed of bronchitis.

region, and people's hearts never troubled

W hen the amateur doctors of the comniu

tered bv the shovelful. There must have
b'jcu a full in the price of these drugs when
the last of these doctors died. If a man
sprained hi3 ankle, was bitten by a mad dog
or had a sick headache ho was told to take
calomel or jalap; if he refused and died, it
served him right. If he took them and died,
it was evidence that no human power could
save him. Castor oil and paregoric some
times appeared, but they were dwarfs com
pared to calomel and jalap. 1 he only rem
edies feared were the private remedies of the
ieoDle. The moment an old woman thoujrht
Bhe could make a valuable medicine out of
some herb or herbs, she burned to administer
it to some suffering neighbor.
The good Samaritan, Airs. Perkins, often
walked miles to urge the use of snake root
tea in tho measles to bring the disease rapidly
to the surface. An old negro, Aunt Kitty,
made a salve for sores that was very famous,
Its principal constituent was duck's fat, but
the fowl must be killed at a certain phase of
the moon and the fat melted over a fire
kindled with certain sorts of wood. As this
6alve was said to work miraculous cures, it
may be a loss to humanity that the astro
nomical and botanical secrets of its manu
facture were not perpetuated.
SWEATING OCT DISEASE.
There was a multiplicity of remedies for
colds, and they generally were base. on
sweating out the disease. Boneset tea, tea of
wild cherry bark, onions stewed with sugar,
and vinegar and molasses all had their warm
advocates, but a highly esteemed remedy
was a Thomsonian mixture bearing the rather
indefinite name of "Composition." Ihcre
was nothing undefined about its taste or
elfect, however. It was of an ardent, im
pulsive nature. It burned the tongue when
first tasted, then It charred the windpipe ana
liver as it went down, and finished by par-
boihner the soles of the reet. its forte was
causing a sweating, and it did its duty to the
letter. It brought the cold out, and it
brought the original sin out, and the heart's
secrets out. Nothing that could be moved
rested beneath the cuticule after a composi
One old idea of the doctors has greatly
changed the objection to their patients
drinking water. No matter how much the
invalid craved it he was told that even a
moderate indulgence would be fatal and the
attendants were solemnly warned to turn a
deaf ear to his entreaties. At the tender age
of ten years I aimed the first blow at the
anti-water regime, and it happened in this
J manner: I was visiting on a plantation and
the planter's father, a man of advanced
years, was at death's door, owing to a pro-ti-acted
case of dysentery. Day by day tho
old man drew nearer to the grave, and the
family awaited tho coming of the destroyer
with sad hearts. The one desire of the dying
man was a draught of cold water from ono of
the sparkling springs which abounded on tho
farm. No traveler, sand Winded and thirst
stricken in the arid desert, could have cried
more piteously or more unavailingly, for the
doctor had declared a draught of water fafcU
to the sick man, and had sternly commanded
the family to refuse his requests.
One morning I was in his room, for he dearly
loved children, and he begged me to stealth
ily fetch him a pitcher of water from the
spring. I hesitated, for while no one had
forbidden me to give him water, I knew the
family refused it to him. Then the old man
asked me to bring him his watch from o(T
the table, I did so, and he told me I should
have it if I would bring him a pitcher of
water. The watch was of silver, as large as
a tmall saucer, and I longed to possess sucti
a treasure. I brought the water. At times
I try to think humanity made me bring it,
but then I think of the watch and doubt.
The old man swallowed the pitcher's con
teats at a draught and died ten years after,
of old age, and I have tho watch yet. "J. C
P." in Philadelphia Times.
At the Battle of Guilford' Court Houses
There are many incidents connected with
the battle which are mostly embalmed only
in tradition and deserve a most lasting placo
in history. With CoL Washington's cavalry
was a volunteer trooper from Virginia,
Peter Francisco, a giant in size, and with
the courage and strength of Richard the
Lion Hearted. In a short encounter in that
bloody corner of the field, when Washington,
joined the First Maryland in its attack upon
CoL Webster's guards, he slew, with his owd
hand, eleven men. His sword was over four
feet in length, and so heavy that not another
man in the army could wield it. One of the
guards, despite Francisco's parrying-, ran
his baj'onet into the latter's thigh, piercing
him to his horse. Francisco forbore to strike,
but assisted him to extricate his bayonet. Al
the soldier turned and fled Francisco madn
a furious stroke with his mighty blade anil
cleft the guardnian's bead to Lis shoulders.
Tbo forco of the blow, added to the soldier's
speed, sent him on a number of steps, with
bis cleft head hanging upon each shoulder,
