Indian corn is essentially an American institution. As the staple food of 'our daddies' it can really bo said to have helped to lay. tho. founda- tion'of-this groat republic.'.With its product, tho hog, it was in the not very remote past, almost the solo food supply of the rural .districts, and the dishes that can be prepared from its various forms are of much greater variety than can bo prepared from wheat. Like Sambo's rabbit, it is good to roast, to bake, or to boil, and can bo fermented and turned into whisky, but its stimulating qualities are best procured by making it into a mush. It contains a large amount of nitrogen, has qualities anti-constipating, and is easily assimilated. Though originally the'poori man's food, it has .come to be the rich man's luxury. ;, It- • is cheap and :has great nutritive properties. A course of Indian meal in the shape of johnnycake, hoe-cake, corn, or, pone-bread and mush, relieved by copious draughts of pure cows' milk, to rwhich, if inclined to dyspepsia, a little lirhe.water may be added, will make.a^life-,now a burden well worth tlie.iiving.-.and you need no other • treatment'to correct your nervousness, brighten your vision, and give .sweet and peaceful sleep."— York Mail and Express.

About a hundred are involved in the conspiracy, fifty- six of whom are now in jail at Pittsburgh, and others are in custody at other towns on the line of the road. Roscoe Conkling is to make a speech at Pittsburgh on the anniversary of Gen. Grant's birthday, April 27, concerning which a good deal of curiosity is expressed in certain quarters. In spite of Cdnkling's long abstention : from politics, his friends still have faith that he will some time regain his old prestige and power. But apparently, Mr^Conkling is more concerned, about.

SPRINQFIELD, 111.',' April 11.—Although there .was not a quorum present in the Senate, this afternoon a five minutes' session was held. ,,,. Senator Curtiss has advanced to third reading the deficiency bill, making appropriation of 850,000 for the pay of the employes of the Thirty- fifth General .Assembly. Senator Crabtree introduced a bill to revise tho law in relation to attachments in courts of record and another in relation 1 to the change. of •• .venue shall be allowed until application is made more .than three days prior to the day set for trial. A quorum was on hand in the House, and although the session is iiearing its end with about 500 propositions for laws on the calender yet to be disposed of, the desire to introduce new bills exists among the statesmen. : . /. Several of these were offered this afternoon, the most important one by Mr.,Bargar, repealing >the Board of Trade charter of Chicago; . also one by Mr. Bayley, providing that the negligence of an employe of a person or a corporation resulting in the injury or death of a fellows-employe, does not release such person or corporation from liability, and ono by Mr. Wodig, authorizing the license m«ney for saloons to go into the road and bridge fund in certain iasos. ; . • • An attempt was made to advance various measuras, but the House got into a snarl and adjourned.

Democratic ticket was elected in El^ sah township. The Republicans who are always in favor ef a "People's," ticket and never succeed in electing anybody on it got, a -little more experience Tuesday. Straight-out Republicans laid aside their prejudice and worked and voted for the People's .ticket. ;Wo consider, 'therefore, that this election was a fair test and proves the useless' ness of nominating a People's ticket here , The Democrats never nominated a worse ticket and the People never nominated a better on than this spring and the People's ticket was never, more heartily, supported by Republicans, yet it was defeated from Supervisor to Constable. ; If defeat must come let us be defeated as Republicans hereafter, Tovoto tho Republican ticket li grand, But what a flicker, To vote with the people, Ana be beaten by liquor— and fraudulent ballots cast by nonresidents and minors. . Meet me behind the old barn love, is the song which Democratic fine workers sing to the doubtful Democratic voters and the large number of .empty bottles found there tells, the rest of the liquid tale.

TVe are indebtedlo Charles Smith, a wide-awake young Republican for finding the empty bottles and exhibiting them to the assembled voters against the loud protest of Democratic candidates. It must be, re- .meuibered that the P. M. is a Justice of the peace sworn to preserve law and order. ; Tuesday night and Wednesday the P. M., the Supervisor-elect, Si B.
