Every spring the roud between Godfrey and North Alton ia impassable lor front two to (bur weeks, ami it makes very little difference how much work has been done during the pre Ylous summer. They are Invariably In a bad condition the following spring, While this roa 1 1* lita bad condition as it ia now there Is no doubt that If tbe.question of McAdam- izlng between here and North Alton waa p it to.a voto it would carry by a la.-ge majority Later in the spring when election time homes tbe roads are in better condition and the supporters of ' MoAdarn decrease. At tbe tlnw B. W. Crawford was county commissioner he offered (with the eonstmt of oneot the other coinmltsionera) to UoAdamlzo the road from,North Alton to the depot at Godfrey, provided th» peonle of Godfrey township would subscribe one-third of the money required. There Is no question but that God- lr«'y township 'had an opportunity at that time to get their long wished for MoAdam- teed load cheaper than they are likely to again. Under the present levy of 40 per cent, there could be Irom $1,5:0 to J1.800 a year spent in UoAdamlrlng without increasing the tax, If the levy was raised to GO per cent from $2,000 to $1,800 could be spent provided none of our large bridges on the Piasa creek should wain out. 'To prove the above we take the administration of the township for tho lust four years In which time there were Jj.Ooo of debt paid aud a $3,000 bridge built i the Supervisor secured an appropriation from tho oountv of HOC to help build said bridgp.leavlng It toooat tbe township direct (3,100. Now too township Is out of, debt and jjhbro la no good mason why M.ftOt could not be spent In MoAdam In next (our years without raiting vhe tax If w« don't have another expensive bridge to build. 11 the levy t-hould be raUedtotho limit of M per cent, 11,000 could b'e spent In MoAdam In (our years, while on the other hand them are • great many who are In fnvor ol tbe town* •hip Issuing bonds to the amount of $30,000 snd UcAdamlilng a mile on tho Orafton roud Irom North Alton out, two wiles and a M on tbe J >rsey vlllo road, or tho mad between Godfrey and: North Alton ,nnd K mile on the eoal branch road.

Tbe reduction of internal revenue and the taking off of revenue stamps from proprietary medicines, no doubt, has iiireoly benetittect tbe consumers, as well as relieving (he burden of home mauu- faoturors. Especially is Ibis the case with Green's August Flower and Boa- obee's Ueruian Syrup, as the reduction of thirty-six cent* per dozen, has been added to increase tbe size of the bottles containing these remedies, thereby giving one-fifth more medicine in tbe 75 cent size. The August Flower for Dyspepsia and Liver complaint and tbe German Syrup' for cough and lung troubles, have, perhaps, the largest sale of'any medicines in the world. Tbe advantage of increased size of tbe bottles will be greatly appreciated by the stok and afflicted, In every town and village in civilized countries.

No, i»y »on (> lt isu't that tho world ha» grown hard-hearted; H isn't that *e aren't just as glad to-day to see the prodignl come back, and jwstasloVihg- Jy anxious to welcome him home rts ever was anybody in the fifteenth uhttp- ter of Luke. It is the manner in which the Prodigal Son of 1887 frequently returns that throws a wet blanket over the festivities of the welcome. When, he comes down the i-oad with his hat hanging on his ear nnd his hands in his pockets; when he kicks the faithful old house dog as he lounges in nt the gate; when he calls his father "Qov'nor," and the hired man "Cull"; when he wants to know "what's for dinner?" before he has been in tho house fifteen minutes; when he' gives his elder brother two fingers to shake and advises him to comb the hayseed out of his hair; wlum he throws himself into tho easiest chair in the house, perches his feet on the window sill and announces that he'll "take a tub before dinner"; when -he comes back with a generally forgiving air of good fellowship about him, and tries to make all the rest of the family feel very easy and reassured—then it is, my son, that your father longs to run and meet you while you are yet a great way off, and fall upon your nock with a plow line and welt you into a state of becoming humanity and penitence by the time you are able to take oil your hat to the bound boy, and crawl up the front steps to ask'your brother to shake hands with you. Good people are just as glad to-day as ever they were, tny son, to see the prodigal come home, but it does rattle them a little to see him come home in a hack and ask them to pay the driver and send for his baggage.— liurdcttc.

Failing .Health. Ten years ago my health began to fail. I was troubled with a distressing Cough, Night Sweats, AVdakness, ami Nervousness. I tried various remedies prescribed by different physicians, but became so weak that I could not go tip stairs without stopping to rent.
