As a compliment to the male sex the

It is announced that President Cleve
land will attend the celebration of the
battle of Gettysburg in July and will
rend the famou oration delivered by
Trefcidcnt Lincoln as an introduction to
his own remarks. That is a happy idea.
Any address on the battlefield of Gettys
burg which quotes Lincoln's unsurpassed
oration can not be a ftilura. It is always
impressive and will bo eternally modern.
Speaking of the political probabilities
fr the coming campaign it is given us
as a solemn fact that Judge S. 51. Chap
man of this judical district has a congres
sional bee buzzing about him. And then
remembering that lie has been exchang
ing pulpits holding courts in Johnson
and Pawnee counties, just to get the lay
of the land, reminds us that perhaps our
in ferment knew whereof ho spoke.

Congressman Long's decision to retire
from public life will be regretted, not
only in Massachusetts, but throughout the
country. His personal character, ability
and high minded patriotism and his loyal
devotion to party principles and party in
terests have won for him a large degree
of public confidence. The reasons that
urge him to his decision keep many ex
cellent men who do not happen to be rich
out of public life. Low salaries arc a
feature of the American legislative system
which is open to criticism. Governor
Long is mistaken in saying that he can
retire without injuring his party. 11 is
los3 will bo a serious one. Such men as
he cannot go without leaving behind them
a vacant place not easily to ba filled.

JfOIiTII AND SOUTH.
e denounce the Mills bill as an at
tempt to force free trade upon the farms
and manufactories and workincrmen of
the Xorth while triving protection to the
sugar and cotton planter of the South.
No measure was ever introduced by
any committee of congress more thoi-
oughly sectional in its character than the
Mills bill. While removing the last iota
of protection from the products of north
crn farms, it leaves a burden of $43,000,-
000 upon the people of the whole coun
try for the benefit of the sugar planters
of Louisiana, and protects the only other
staple of the seuth which comes into
competition with the products of other
lands, the rice crop. The wool, the grain,
the liya stock, even the vegetables of the
northern farmer arc forced into conipeti
tion with the world, but the
southern planter is protected. And not
only de northern democrats sanction this
attempted outrage upon their constituents,
but they ask the farmers and mechanics
among them to give their approval to it
Protection made the north rich while
the south was kept poor by the institu
tion of slavery. The south is now de
liberately planning to stop the progress
of the north until the south can overtake
it. And not merely that, but it is pro
posed to make the north contribute from
the fctore it has gained. The wages of
our labor must be reduced, so that the
south may buy such things as it does not
produce cheajicr while building up its
It does not seem possible that northern
farmers and workingmcn will give their
sanction to such a sectional proposition.
Certainly none will who analyze the bill
and learn its purposes and certain effect.

G. A. R. National Encampment.
This important annual event in Grand
Army circles occurs at Columbus, O., in
the second week of September next. The
present indications are that it will be the
largest Encampment eyer held, it being
estimated that at least 200,000 veterans
will bo in attendance. Preparations for
the event are being rapidly pushed, and
the people of Columbus will be ready to
take care of the throng?.
The Ohio State Journal has been select
ed by the Executive Committee of Ar
rangements to publish the daily roster of
the Encampment. A Committee on Reg
istration will arrange to secure the most
complete registration that has ever been
made, and the State Journal has contract
ed to print the names as they are furnish
ed. This will make a very important
feature of the National Encampment, as
nothing like a perfect roster has ever
been published. Now it is proposed by
the Stutc Journal, if enough subscrip
tions to the Weekly are received to justi
fy tkc expense to print the entire roster
complete after the Encampment, und
send it to every yearly subscriber to the
Weekly Ohio State Journal, which costs
but 1 p:r yeur. It will require about
."iO.OOO new subscriptions to let the pub
lishers out en the expense, and it re
mains now to be seen whether there are
tint many old veterans who are willing
to pay $1 to have for preservation the
roster of 1888 in complete form.
Subscriptions should be sent in now,
as the paper is worth moro than its cost
to any lamily, and especially so to Grand
Army men at this timo who desire to
keep posted on the preparations for the
Encampment, which appear every week
in the State Journal.

What is this "nervous trouble" with
which so many seem now to be afflicted? If
you will remember a few years ago the
word Malaria was comparatively uu
known, today it is as common as any
word in the English language, yet this
word covers only the mtauingof another
word used by our forefathers in times
past. So it is used with nervous diseases,
as they and Malaria are intended to cover
what our grandfathers called Biliousness,
and all are caused by troubles that arise
from a diseased condition f the Liver
which in performing its functions finding
it cannot dispose of the bile through the
ordinary channel is compelled to pass it
off through the system causing nervous
troubles, Malaria, Bilious Fever, etc.

Work of the Nihilists.
A correspondent of The London Standard
says that the Russian Nihilists, having failed
to make the desired impression upon the
peasants, have for the past few years devoted
their attention chiefly to the army and navy,
and with 6tartlLng succesa it is suspected
that If Russia becomes engaged in another
war the revolutionists will not permit her
triumph. "If our armies emerge victorious
from a coming war," says the liberals, "the
abomination of desolation will be inaugurated
in our country, and will last indefinitely."

uses. According to Kir Edward Heed, M. I'.,
it has been produced in divers forms, such ns
fine sheets and riblions lor waterproof arti
cles, dense blocks for resisting tho blows of
shot or shell, and very satisfactory rings for
engine packing. One process con verts it into
an elastic, sponge liUo substance; and an
other, in which it is mixed with whalebone
cuttings, gives it a rough or frictional quality
for mats. Some curious naval applications
have been worked out. It is mr.de into armor
