SPKINGFIKLD, 111., Feb. 7.—Forty members of .the House and Senate, either farmers, stock-raisers, or men interested, in agricultural pursuits, held a meeting lately and organized for action. Thsy to'okiup the report of the revenue commission apd unanimously agreed that May Ishould be substituted for Jan. 1 for the date of assessment, the present law fix 7; ing it at May 1. They also- dis- ^apjjroved of the plan of assessing property j'as laid down by the Commissioner's report, thinking the present law better than the one proposed. They hold the present law providing for township assessors better than the new one proposedof County Assessor and deputies. The meeting was a significant one in that the farmers of the Legislature are preparing to look out for their interests in whatever way they may be imperiled in the revision of the revenue law. It is not so much an attitude of antagonism as one of self protection. xhe State Fair SPRINGFIELD, 111,, Feb. 7—If Chicago wants to become the perm»- nont location of the State Fair, she must look sharp. The time is now ripn for action. The Board of Supervisors of Sangamou county has voted to appropriate enough to buy 150 acres of land near this city, with $50,000 additional for improvements.

What True Merit Will Do. The unprecedented sale of Boaoheo's .German Syrup within a low years, has astonished the world. It is without 'doubt.the safest and best'remedy ever discovered for the speedy and effectual cure of Coughs, Colds : and the severest Lung troubles. It acti) on an entirely different principle from the unutil proscriptions given by physicians, us it does not dry up a cough and leave the disease still in the system, but on the contrary removes the cause of the trouble, heals the parts affected and leaves them in a purely healthy eondi* tion.
