Look out for democratic lies.
Tue republican ticket of Cuss county
cannot be imposed upon.
WoRKINomen intend to make the sixth
of next November the Appomatoxof free
There are campaign lies being circu
lated; we advise our renders to look out
for them and not believe them, for thej
contain not one word of truth.
The Knights of Libor have the n o'to:
An injnry to one is the concern of all."
It is just this fact in a republic that
makes it the general concern that a few
shall not follow blind prejudice and vote
upon American workingmen n policy
thht will o reduce them to the level of
European pauper labor.
Harrison and Morton believe in hon
oring the soldier, and in protecting his
helpless widow ani orphans. They be
lieve in the stars and stiipes as the sole
emblem of a united country: and their
administration while kindly to all would
not install ex-rtbels in high places in the
government, nor countenance crimes
against the ballot. If this policy is wise,
vote to restore it in national administra
tion. Parties, like some other tilings, are
known by their fruits. Massachussets
where every voter is able to read and
write, will give a Republican majority
25,000 to 30,000, while Louisiana, where
the illiterates number more than half the
voting population, will give an over
whelming majority for Cleveland and
Tburman. There you have a, diagram
showing the relative intelligence and
character of the two parties. Young
Voters ought to take this diagram into
consideration before casting their politi
cal lota in life.
A glass dresser in the O'Hara works at
Pittsburg earned $ 1.50 in 1860, the last
year of a democratic tariff, and paid
$2.50 per dozen, or about 21 cents each
for the goblets he made. In 1880 he
earned in the very same establishment
$2.50, and yet he paid only 35 cents per
dozen, or 3 cents eacli, for the goblets lie
jnade, which were better than any pro
duced in 1S60. Under democracy his
lay work earned 7 got Jets, under re
imblicanisui hi day's vork earned S i
Illustrations like these from official
authority could be given in number suf
ficient to fill this sheet. And yet there
ore democratic orgaus which persist in
the cry that the tariff is a tax, and that
the poor workingman is somehow robbed
by the duties imposed on cotton, tools,
nails and glassware. N. Y. Tribune.
' THOSE FRIGHTFUL TAX EH.
How many voters realize what the pro
tective system has done for them ? Dem
ocratic newspapers are careful not to
make known the facts, which are never
theless abundently established by official
records. For example, let the . census
report on wages testify as follows :
A cotton apinner at Cohoes earned fl
iu 1800, the last year of a Democratic
tariff, and the wholesale price of print
cloths was then 5.37 cents. The same
spinster earned in the same works $1,75
in 18S(), and the price of print cloths was
.".87 cents. A day's work under Democ
racy would buy 18 yards, under Repub
licanism 40 yards.
A carpenter earned $1,50 in 1800, the
last year of a Democratic tariff and paid
for a hand saw, He earned $2. in
1880, and paid $1. for a tatter hand-saw.
Under Democracy his saw cost him two
days' labor, under Republicanism half a
A blacksmith earned $1,071 in 1800,
the list year of a Democratic tariff, and
paid $3.25 per 100 pounds for nails.
He earned $1.80 iu 1880, and paid in
the same market $2. per 100 pounds for
nails, Under Democracy his day's work
earned 31 pounds, and under Republi
canism 00 pounds of nails.

Chinese as Opium Smugglers.
Who do 1 think are the most successful
smugglers? The sleek faced, moon eyed
Celestials, most emphatically. There is
no portion of a vessel or its cargo sacred
or safe from the manipulations of the
rascals. They have the deadly drug
plaited in their queues, quilted in their
clothing, packed in the cork soles of their
shoes, and tucked away in the soft, cling
ing folds of their silk handkerchiefs.
They have false bottoms and sides to their
camphor wood trunks, false bottoms to
their cooking utensils, and they are false
all the way through. They will construct
material to resemble eoal, fill the interior
with opium and place it in the coal
bunkers until all suspicion is allayed and
the steamer discharged; they construct
tin boxes to fit around masts and cover
their deception with false mast coats well
calculated to deceive the inexperienced
eye of a landsman. They will store it
iway in boxes of tea. cover it up with
preserved ginger, and havo it they will,
despite all efforts to suppress the prac
tice. New York Star.

Montgomery M. Folsom in Atlanta Con
stitution. To CIiookw an Orange.
The very sweetest orange and richest lit
the black or rusty coated fruit. I'iek out
tho dingiest oranges in the box and yon
will get the best. Another way to choo.so
oranges is by weight. Tho heavest are
the best, because they havo the thinnest
fckiu and mow weight of juice. Thick
skin oranges aro apt, to be dry; they
either weigh less b -cause of having so v
much skin, or because of tlio poverty of y
tho juice in these particular specimens.
A flight freezing on the trec causes this
condition in otherwise lino fruit. Tho
"kid glove" oranges urn the two varieties
of small fruit grown in Florida frem v
stocks respect ive' brougiit from ('biars.'J,. f
and from Tangiers. 'i'hey tiro called
"Mandarin" a.ud "Tangerine." They
may bo eaten without soiling a kid glove,
because the skin is loose and tho little
"gores" or pockets of juice, come apa-l
very cleanly and without breaking. All
the above applies to Florida oranges. Tha
Jamaica and Havana oranges aro much
paler yellow, and lhc-ir juie-e. is usually of
more acid quality. The Caterer.

The latest danger to civilization is the

the blood vessels of the scalp, with ro
