1. Resolved, That we look upon
the inauguration of R, B. Hayes to the
high office of President of the United
States, in spite of the majority of the

the people to Samuel J. Tilden, as the
most dangerous encroachment, upon
popular rights that has ever been at

Ye Local Reporter.
From the Inter Ocean.
It is not generally 3upposedthat the
reportorial profession offers many
chances for unadulterated elory. The
English newspaper correspondent does
occasionally obtain a decoration from a
monarch of a petty state, accustomed
to sling around crosses as a mission
ary distributes tracts but otherwise
the chances are few and far between
The Chicago riot has, however, offered
chances to the adventurous reporter
which occur but seldom in a life-time
and of which he has not been slow to
avail himself. The very moment that
the tocsin of war summoned from
their lair the blue-coated yoemen of
the eruard. the Chicago reporter buck
led on his armor. Grasping his pencil
firmly in his dexter hand, swallowing
hastily a Richard III. luncheon-cheese
sandwich and a glass of Beer bidding
a hasty adieu to the maiden of his
choice, he plunged manly into the
thickest of the fray. "What was dan
ger to him ; what brick-bats, clubs, or
miscelaneou3 bullets; what cared he
that the mob reviled him, that they
tore his last summer's duster, or sent
the daylight streaming through the
hat that he wore during the last cam
paign. He thirsted for glory or the
grave.for f ame'sleternal campingground
or a place among the forty immortals.
He got them all; he won his spurs; he
came, he saw, he conquered. "What he
did not behold was not worth behold
ing. As he sat upon the table which
ht has dedicated to the muses on the
peaceful afternoon of yesterday with
his nose pretty well healed, a patch
over his left eye, and the chasm in his
head doing finely, telling his story, he
only waited for some Desdemona to
come along with a pile of money and
love him for the dangers he had pass
ed. Mayhap he fancied he heard the
voice of that Desdemona, and awaken
ed to find it only the city editor asking
him to polish up that nose a bit, and
look sharp for a sermon at 11. But
such is glory.
Hayes on Red Soldiers.
President Hayes is reported to have
said, the oLher day, that Indians could
not be introduced in the army, in any
extended way, with efficiency. He ad
ded: "I had three Indians in my corps.
As scouts they were unequaled. "We
could do nothing with them as soldiers.
They would not di ill, they would not
keep rank, they would do nothing ex
cept in the;r wild Indian way. We
were troubled by a sharp-shooter who
had picked off our men. and we could
not reach him. I.sent for one of these
scouts. He came to mv camp in a
louchy way, seemed half asleep, and
was wholly inuiuerent. nen i tola
him what I wanted, his face glowed,
;is eyes sparkled and he straightened
himself up like a crested snake ready
to strike, rolled his trousers up to his
thighs, his sleeves to his shoulder
blades to be as much of a savage as
possible. He took his rifle, several
rounds of ammunition, threw himself
on the grass before there wasa'iy need
of it, and wound himself along with
the Telocity and silence of a snake.
Three shots brought the sharp-shooter
down, when the scout returned per
fectly exhilcrated. Ex.
A physician writing to the London
Lancet, says few people know the val
ue of lemon juice. He says a piece of
lernon bound upon a corn will cure it
in a few days. It should be renewed
night and morning.
He says a free use of lemon juice
and sugar will always relieve a cough.
He says that most people feel poorly
in the spring, and take medicine for
relief, but if they would eat a lemon
before breakfast every day for a week,
with or without sugar, as they like,
they would find it better than any
He says that lemon juice used ac
cording to a given recipe, will cure
consumption, even after all the doctors
have given them up, as not to be bene
fited. This is his prescription ; Put a doz
en lemons into cold water and slowly
bring to a boil. Boil slowly until the
lemons are soft, but not too soft, then
squeeze until the juice is extracted,
add sugar to your-taste. and drink. In
this way use one dozen lemons a day.
If they cause pain, or loosen the bow
els too much, lessen the quantity and
use only five or six a day, until you
are better, and then begin again with a
dozen a day. After using five or six
dozen, the patient will begin to gain
flesh and enjoy food. Hold on to the
lemons, and still use them freely sever
al weeks more.
He says: We know that if any
thing on earth can cure you, this will.
We have had patients who were in
the last stages of consumption, and
given over by excellent physicians,
who were restored to health by simply
following these directions. Only pre
pare the lemon as here directed, use
them freely for several weeks, and you
will soon be well.
Another us-3 of lemon is for a re
freshing driuk in summer, or in sick
ness at ar.y time. Prepare as directed
above, add water and sugar. But in
order to have this keep well, after
boHing the lemons, squeeze them and
strain carefully, then to every half-pint
of juice add one pound of loaf or crush
ed sugar, boil and stir a few minutes
more, until the sugar is dissolved, then
skim carefully and bottle. You will
get more juice from the lemons by
boiling them, also it keeps better.

Ulittdng by Machinery.
From tbe Beading Eagle.
Hard labor is gradually being super
seded by machinery in nearly every
branch of industry. It is curious to
mark the unlikely uses to which ma
chinery may be applied. An ingenious
inventor in the United States has re
cently patented a useful device in the
shape of a cow-milking machine, which,
it is said, will do all that can be done
in milking by hand, faster and better,
and will be of special service where
cows have sore teats or are hard milk
ers. The apparatus consists essentially
of a glass globe, large enough to hold
an average yield of milk, which is con
nected by means of a flexible tube with
an air pipe. Rising from the top of
the globe are small pipes with metal
tips. The mode of operation consists
in suspending the globe underneath
the animal to be milked, and inserting
the tips of the small tubes in to the
teats. A partial vacum is then effected
inside the globe by means of the air
pump; and the milk thus drawn forth.
The advantages claimed by the in
vention are that it prevents any loss of
milk through spilling, it renders milk
or straining pails unnecessary and pre
vents entrance of dirt. Finally, it can
be easily manipulated by anybody.
Shad for the Upper Mississippi.
From the St. Taul Piess.
Yesterday morning, by the 6 o'clock
train, Mr. II. E. Quinn and Mr. C. W.
Schuermann, both United States Fish
Commissioners of Washington, arrived
in St. Paul, bringing with them 100,-
000 shail, which they deposited in the
Missisippi River, at the foot of Jack
son street. These nsn were urougnt
all the way from South Hadley Fal!s,
Mass., by these gentlemen, wrho had to
sit up with them all night and change
the water every two hours, and watch
the temperature of the atmosphere, as
at no time during all the days and
nights they were on the road was the
temperature allowed to go above C5
or befow 00. If the temperature had
been allowed to get above or below
these figures it would have been death
to the fish. These two gentlemen took
turns attending to this business of
changing the water and watching the
temperature. This they did for three
days and n'ghts, as they came over the
road from South Hadley. As above
stated, they arrived here at 6 o'clock
yesterday morning and, without wait
ing, took the fish off the train and put
them into the river. These fish, as'
they are called, are about one-quarter
of an inch in length, and look like so
many animated hairs. Looking down
into the cans in which they came, all
that can be seen is an apparently innu
merable number of little black hairs,
with two black dots at one end of each,
the bodies were transparent. The
journey of these gentlemen must be
called a success, judging from the
number and vigorous condition of the
fry brought safely thraugh the trip of
three days and nights, and, considering
the hot weather and distance traveled,
great credit is due the gentlemen in
charge for their , care and attention,
which results in success. They return
ed East yesterday.
How to keep Well.
The remedy for summer diseases, by
whatever name, is: Eat, less. We do
not mean that you shall starve your
selves, or deny yourself what you like
best, for as a general rule, what you
like best is best for you ; you need not
abandon the use of tea or coffee, or
meat or anything else you like, but
simply, eat less of them. Do not starve
yourself, do not reduce the quantity of
food to an amount which would scarce
ly kftep a chicken alive, but make a
beginning by not going to the table at
all, unless you feel hungry; for if you
once get there, you will begin to taste
this and that and the other, by virtue
of mustard, or syrup,' or cake or some
thing nice. Thus a fictitious appetite
is waked up, and before you know it
you have eaten a hearty meal. The
second step toward the effectual pre
vention of all summer complaints, and
the like is: Diminish th6 amount of
food consumed at each meal, by one
fourth of each article. If you have
taken two biscuits, or slices of bread,
take one and a half ; if you have taken
two spooiifulls of rice, or hominy or
cracked wheat, or grits or farina, take
one and a half; if you have taken a
certain or uncertain quantity of meat,
diminish in proportion as the weather
becomes wanner, until you have no
unpleasant feelings of any kind after
your meals, and until you have not
eaten so much at one meal, but that
when the next one comes, you shall
feel decidedly hungry. Hall's Journal
