"Is there no balm in Gilead?" or
must a long suffering people be com
pelled to pay taxes to keep a horde of
imcompctent men at Lincoln, styled
the legislature for 60 days whose only
object seems to be to draw their sal
ary or introduce foolish bills. The
outfit introduced 488 bills, and we
presume not ever eight of thesa have
any real merit, that would be worth
the price of the paper usad to draft
them on. The legislative session
under the present system is a high
handed outrage and should be squelch
ed. Once in four year is often
enough for the legislature to meet in
Nebraska. There is certainly no cry
in? demand for sessions oftcner than
that. It is a useless expense on the
In yonr i.Mue of yesterday yon say: "No
need tonsk tha democrat. They will be
a unit ngainst prohibition.'' On this I
beg leave to any n word. You are misin
formed a to the sentiment' of the demo
crat of this state. Many thousands of
them will vote for prohibition. And they
wonld still like to remain democrats. For
this reason I wish now, in ample time, to
protett against any attempt by party or
gans, leaders or conventions to commit
the democracy of Nebraska against pro
hibition. This question is entraneous to
politics, except as regards thoe fear
people who have been vainly trying to
found and build a party upon it. Their
non-scccess is conclusive evidence that
the question is one of morals and cot of
politics essentially considered.
To commit the party to a defined policy
ngainst prohibition is both bad morals
cracy of Iowa and Kansas needs but be
glanced at to make assnranee on this
point doubly and forever sure. In those
states the adoption of prohibition by the
republicans and the opposition to it of
the democrats did cause some temporary
perturbation in the ranks of both parties,
and for awhile the transfers from one to
the other were quite marked, with an ap
parent advantage to the democrats. Bnt
whea the clouds rolled by it was found
that the democrats had traded numbers
of their best men for an equal or less
number of the worst men of the enemy.
The former disparity between the parties
in those states has returned. The
democrats are reduced in numbers and in
morale, and as having some knowledge
of the political premises I can confident
ly assure you that Gabriel will toot his
justly celebrated horn many years before
the democrats will carry either of those
states unless the current of events and
tendencies chinge nightly.
It is not much to ask that a man may
vote for prohibition and still be a demo
crat in good standing. If it is not grant
ed tho next state convention will see men
on its floor demanding a good deal more
thnnthat. The democracy of Nebraska has
been the combine of the whisky element
long enough. For twentw yean of whieh
I have pergonal knowledge, the saloon
have been swallowing democratic plat
forms and republican candidates.
Thousand of democrats have had all
of this disgraceful and humiliating sort
of thing they can stand. Another formal
surrender to the saloons, an attempt to
dragon the. party to tha support of the
trade in liquors, will either utterly fail, or
it will drive out of the party maay thous
ands of its best men and most zealons
For these and many other equally good
and sufficient reasons I beseech the new
Herald, the only democratic daily of re
cognized metropolitan standing north of

TREATMENT OF CHUur.
The Two Worm ruder Which the Disease
Is Chiefly Met With.
Catarrhal or false membranous or
true, and diph there tic Diphtheretic
croup is seldom recovered from, mem
branous is very often fatal and catarrhal
is usually recovered from if tho treat
ment be not too fierce. The child with
membranous or diphtheretic croup is
taken ill, and the cough symptoms, at
first perhaps mild, increase in severi
ty, and the little one, ill from the first,
prows hourly more ill; whereas the
child with catarrhal croup is usually
taken sick suddenly, apparently very
ill indeed, the croup symptoms being;
very intense. This occurs usually at
night, and after tho first sleep. With
or without treatment the child usually
loses tho croup symptoms before morn
ing, and ho plays the next day, to
grow worso the second night, to have
a second day like the first and a third
night like the first and second only
to be well the fourth day, save from
the symptoms of a cold"' a slight
bronchitis of the larger tubes.
True and diphtheretic croup demand
the physician's every attention. False
croup requires little save an equal
temperature (warm), the usual treat
ment for a slight cold, and a half or a
teaspoon of the syrup of ipecac (or the
wine), according to age, if the child's
breathing becomes excessively labored
child becomes blue in the face and
struggles for air. In every form of
croup, to relieve the embarrassed
respiration, the application of a cloth
wrung out of cold water, to the back
of the neck, and of a second wrung out
of hot water to the front of the neck,
and those rapidly alternated, is a pro
cedure I fully indorse. Once weaned,
the many symptoms of digestive dis
turbance show themselves, which
symptoms arc commonly (regularly)
attributed to worms, and other symp
toms appear which the all-knowing
ignorant know to be duo to teething.
Worms cause an irritation of the bow
