the Secretary of the State Fair.

The Commissioners and Comrade
Geo. Fairfield have laid out a new road
from the B. & M. stock yards south
west to a point opposite Dowd's.
"When finished this will be one of our
best avenues, and we hope the city
will fix their part of the road past the
shops so we may have it open soon.
A man in Annapolis Md. says he
has the bullet which passed through
the President's sleeve and according
to his story struck him in the breast
glancing on a medal he wore which
he thinks saved his life. He wants to
keep the bullet as a relic.
The Lincoln Globe has been chang
ing hands considerably of late. Mr
Jno. Dunbar recently bought the half
interest of Conlee, and afterwards
Mr. Webter Eaton's interest, and
shortly afterwards transferred the
ofUce to Mr. Calkins, formerly of the
Fairmont Bulletin .
We saw Calkins the other day, and
he looks at home. We hope he may
make a success of the Globe all over.
The Albany melango continues.
The half breeds held what they called
a "conference" (not a caucus) and
nominated Miller and Lapham, two
congressmen. This was objected to
by the stalwarts, for if elected, it
.would leave the House Democratic
perhaps and so they still vote for
Conkling and Crowley. On the 11th,
Conkling had4thirt7-eight votes, a gain
of several and the S. fellows felt ju
bilant. It is thought some agree
ment must be reached this week,
The President's situation contin
ues favorable though on the 11th
day his temperature i eached the high
est point it has gone yet, and caused
much alarm. Yesterday the symp
toms were favorable again, and the
doctors give great encouragement for
his entire recovery and that he will
be out of bed by the first of Septem
ber. We must bear in mind, though, thai
should an abcess form in tne mean
time, the wound may yet prove fatal.
Death of Ex-Senator Hitchcock.
We were greatly startled and sur
prised to hear of the death of Hon
W. Hitchcock, on Sunday last.
He died about 10:30 a. in., ot some
thing like Peritonitis. To us it was
an entire surprise, not having heard
he was unwell at all. The Kepubli
can, however, savs he had not been
stout for some time, and work, grief
and worry hastened and aggravated
the action of some internal and chron
ic difficulties. He was born in New
York in 1831 and came to Nebraska in
1857. He was XL S. Marshal of the
Territory, delegate to Congress, U. S.
Surveyor General and U. S. Senator,
and now that he is dead the people
that abused him all his living days
say he was a tru6 friend, an honest
hard worker and a man of no mean
As we liked the man when living
and never joined in the death cry (po
litically) with which he was followed
to hia cnave a lone obituary is not
necessary from this paper.
His record, his merits and demerits.
bis work for Nebraska are written in
the naces of Ilistorv of this State and
will remain there while time lasts
Let these be his epitaph.

patch has been sent by the surgeons in
charge to the two counselling surgeons
to-day: 4Such slight changes as have
taken place in the president's con
dition since our telegram of yesterday
ore of a favorable character. About
seven this evening his bowels wtre
freely moved. Shortly after he receiv
ed a hypodermic injection of one quar
ter of an ounc of morphine. He
slept mwre naturally during the niiil
than he has done since he was hurt
and this morning he is comfortable,
taking his nourishment and appears
on the whole better than ever. Dur
ing the twenty-four hours he has taken
altogether fourteen ounces of milk
and one ounce of rum. This morning
at 10 a. m. he again received ten grams
of bi-salphate quinia. Both yesterday
and the day before iho wound was
dressed and especially twice in 24
hours. This morning it is discharging
rather less pus than yesterday, but its
appearance is healthy. Yesterday at
7:15 p. m. the pulse was 108; tempera
ture 101 8-10; respiration 24. To-day
at 8 a. m. his pulse is 10S ; temperature

Mysterious Poisoning.
Sheridan Post.
The poisoning affair which the edi
tors of the Post and others were the
victims of would not be referred to in
our columns, but that so many differ
ent versions of the affair are alloat
that all are in doubt what to credit
and what to disbelieve. The facts,
simply stated, are these:
A box 2x3 inches, appearing to have
come from some eandy factory, and
containing a request to try the sam
ple and recommend the brand to oar
friends, was received by Thursday's
morning mail. The edito s, W. A.
Taggurt, brother of the junior editor,
and the ouice boy, all in the oflice at
the time, each took a small piece and
ate it. In this way about three
fourihs of the candy was eaten, and
the rest left ou the counter. In about
fifteen minutes the junior was at
tacked with a burning sensation in
the pit of the stoiaacli. fol-
owed quickly by vomiting. The rest
were taken similarly, until all were
compelled to seek their beds. Medi
cal aid was called and after twelve or
fourteen hours of almost constant at
tention and vomiting all were brought
out of inimediats danger. The next
day alarmii.g symptoms returned, but
by Monday, kall were able to be out.
ana nave cominueu to improve ever
since. One may judge how severe was
the suffering, from the fact that the
editors lost in weight, respectively 14
and pounds in two days. We
iear reports that we have charged the
crime on this one or that. This is a
mistake, for we have ne knowledge of
the perpetrator. We have simply
stated that the box was not mailed
either at Sheridan or Brownville, but
it came through the Brownville office.
We ascertained this much the next
day and have had nothing more defi
nite to say since.
Deaths have been numerous in
Omaha the past week: ex-Senator
litchcock, Mrs. J. A. Morrow, and
Miilip Koch, all early settlers in Ne
braska and connected with her histo
ry in some manner.

We have been having plenty of rain
ately, which helped the looks of corn
wonderfully. Wheat that was sown on
new ground looks well, and gives prom
ise f a good yield, but that which was
sown on old ground is very short, and
much of it cannot be bound. Farmers
are busy; some are laying by their
corn, some are harvesting their barlev
(which is an average crop), and others
are getting ready for harvest.

Louisville Notes!
So the "Louisville Attorney" has
"gone through" a quill. He is smaller
than we thought. The gentleman is
mistaken : "Quill" never accused him
of stealing coal : he i3 "off his feed ;
he "vomits emptiness." He says he is
charged with "doing some terribly bad
thing but never in such a way as to be
known. Charley Clark, conductor on
the 13. & M., requests us to say that it
is "known." as he saw the chap do
that "terrible bad thing" many times
"Quill" is serry te lose the Attorney's
"influence," but hopes to survive so
long as he is able "to carry water" on
tLreo shoulders to onc't." Temper
auce is all right, but why not oppose
the saloon before it becomes unlawfu
to accept a trat.

Beneficial Effects of the Ten Dollar
fine Under the Slocmub Law
One Dese of the Medicine Effects a
Before the Slocumb liquor law went
into effect an ordinary drunk was
rather an inexpensive amusement, the
fine and costs generally amounting to
only $2.85, which was easily paid. The
reteran bummers thought nothing of
being hauled up before the police
couit once or twice a week and either
paying or working out a One.
But times and prices have changed
since the enforcement of the Slwcumb
law, under which the tine for a plain
unvarnished drunk is a ten dollar bill,
with $3.55 costs added, making the
neat little sum of SI 2.55, at which rate
nobody but a Kothschild or a Vauder
but can indulge in drunkeu sprees
moie than once or twice a month.
"What is the effect of the new tariff
on drunks, asked a Kepublican re
porter of Jailor McClure, last evening,
"It has a pretty salutary enecc on
the old bums," replied he. "They don't
want but one dose of the Siocumb
medicine. TLe old bummers, who us
ed to be jerked up once or twice
week for drunkenness, are now never
pulled up a second time. Twelve dol
lars and fifty-five cents pamlyzes 'em.
as it were, particularly if they haven't
got a cent and have to work it out. It
takes em fourteen days to work out
the tine and costs, and at that rate
man can't get drunk more than twice
a moii h. Most of thn persons now
;uifhted for drunkenness are either
mi augers or those who have not learn
ed the fact that the price of drunks
has gone up. Under the old law
man could get drunk ahotit hve times
where he can only do it once now. In
this lespect the Slocumb law is having
a very good pffect. If a man gets
drunk now he might as well make no
halfway business, but perfectly para
lyze himself, as lie can t get off for less
than the regular S12.5.1."
"Dos n't the high price reduce the
city's revenue somewhat?"
"Oh, no; on the contrary I think it
greatly increases it. We have fewer
drunks to be sure, but the great differ
ence in the fine more than makes up
for this. The police curt fines, of all
kinds, for the month of May amounted
to about 8600."
"What proportion of the lines for
drunkenness are paid?"
'A little over one-half, and the bal
ance is worked out. When a man who
is not aware of the $lt fine comes to
pay it, it almost takes his breath away.
The other night I had a man in the
cooler for drunkenness. In two or
three hours he sobered up and inquired
if there was any way of getting out.
I told him that, under the judge's in
structions, I would take the amount
of the fine and costs, as bail aad let
him go." 'How much is it?' asked he
I told him that the fine and costs
amounted to $12.53. 'Take it out of
the $33 of my money, give me the
balance, and let me go. You'll never
catch me here again if it costs that
much,' said he, and thereupon I turned
him loose. Yes, sir; I tell you that
the law is a good one. Nw, under
the old state of affairs, a great many
men were hauled up for drunkenness
on complaint of their wives, who next
day would repent and come up and
pay the $2.85 fines for their husbands.
But now we have very little f that
kind of business, as the women find it
much more difficult to raise $12.55."
Just at this point Policeman O'Grady
brought in a drunken man all the way
from the military bridge. The prison
er had been beating his wife, wh had
complained of him, and he had struck
and resisted the officer.
"What charge shall I enter against
the man?" asked the officer.
"Drunk and disorderly."
"No; I guess I'll put it plain drunk,
Which will cost him $12.55 under the
Slocumb law. If I put it 'drunk and
disorderly' it will come under the city
ordinance and the fine will be only
$5.55. So you see," said he, turning to
the reporter, "that right here is anoth
er evidence of the superior benefits of
the Slocumb law.

Much serious sickness and suffer

correcting those slight derangements
that, otherwise, often develop into
settled disease. When a cold or other
cause checks the operation of the se

action should be restored, and inflam

system. Ayer's Pills accomplish this

One of the greatest troubles of our
people is weakness of the stomach. As
this soon causes Indigestion, Nervous
ness and Rheumatism, they prevail in

There is positively no need for any
body to suffer from these painful
troubles who can buy a 50 ct. bottle of
Parker's Ginger Tonic; for this super
ior medicine always tones up the stom
ach and nervous system, and keeps the
kidneys active in carrying off the foul
matters, thus laying a good foundation
for perfect health. N. O. Picayune.

In the following remarkable state
ment. William J. Coughlin of SoroerT
ville, Mass., says: "In the fall of 1876
I was taken with a violent bleed
ing of the lungs followed by a se
vere cough. I was so weak at one
time that I could not leave my bed.
In the summer of 1877 I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I had a hole in my left
lung as big as a half dollar. I expend
ed over a hundred dollars in Jdoctors
and medicines. I gave up hope, but a
friend told me of DR. HALL'S BAL
bottle to satisfy him, when to my fur
prise and gratification, 1 commenced
to feel better, and to-day feel in better
spirits than I have the past three years.
I write this hoping that every one
afflicted with Diseased Lungs will be
induced to take Dr. WM. HALL'S
conviuced that CONSUMPTION"
CAN BE CURED. I cau positively
say that it has done more good than
all the other medicines I have taken
during my sickness." Sold by drug

-Many persons are bitterly opposed
to "patent medicines," and will rarely
use them at all. There is no doubt
that many are worthless, yet a remedy
that has stood the test for years, like
Dr. Sherman's Prickly Ash Hitters,
and its sale and popularity increasing
every day, must have merit or it
wo in 1 have disappeared long smce.ioj
It is to be hoped that the poison
ous ague medicuies have had their
day. Arsenic and quinine are not de
sirable commodities to carry about m
one's system, even for the sake of tem
porarily displacing the malarial poison
which produces fever and ague. Ayer's
Ague Cure is a sure antidote for the
ague, and is perfectly harmless, leav
ing the system in as good condition as
before the ague was contracted.
