Such was the text 01 a colored preacher, and I'll have to adopt it upon the present occasion us a starter. I've been as aick as a phule. with a cold, foi a week. My head ached, my face ached, my nose dripped, and my eyes felt red, and I coughed until I felt sore all over, i had too much cold for one person, but not quite enough for two, and I verily believe I would be much woree it the old woman hadn't ccme to mv reliei and dosed me, before going to bed She mixed a iness in a tea cup. It ooked a little too pale for coffee and a little too red for sassafras tea. She presented the mixture and said, Now, drink that and keep your mouth shut tight and it wont burn ong; it nm't anything but a half a easpoontul of Cayenne pepper In bis little water." The doee was liken according to directions, and I Brmly believe that the mouthahutting skedule was merely added to keep jad cuss words from being used about some kind of fire or something most like it; but it relieved me of my cold all the same, and I advise persons afflicted in a like manner to ry the same remedy m the snmo manner for two or three nights in accession. I eiught my cold in town, or ·ather, there is where it caught me. ! went there early to see the street iars and to 'lectioneer, and while oitering around halted in front of Uncle Billy's" (my political opponent) place of business, and while- bere ruminating, and seeing him mstling around fatly, sbnt collar pen sod sleeves rolled up, and mong baskets of tomatoes and piles f cantolopes and watermelons, sell- og this, ihi t and tother to Tom, Dick and Harry, I could not help thinking that he had largely the advantage of me in our race for office. Moreover, he has cigars and store tobacco and sugar candy to recommend him and make him popular. While thus musing I wished in my heart (or somewhere else) that he was a "third party man," then he would be much easier beat. Thus between doubts and fears I felt a chilly sensation in the rear--something like a bedbug with cold feet, meandering up and dawn my spinal column, searching for a soft plaee to extract gore. The chilly sensation anguincnted with the lapse o* time, and culminated in the cold aforesaid CUillicothe is in the agany of another boom. The Republicans have besn holding another convention, and I don't suppose they would kick glata, Cnlllieotne, Mo. drug- if it was ca'-l« d "Black Kepnbhcan,' 23 ly as there were on the street severs strange colored brothers, of very large size and loud dross, and carry ing long oanes, meandering slowly and looking solemn, as if it were they that permitted the sun to keep on shining. If they were not delegates they ought to have been, for their demeanor carried conviction to every mind that 'they were no common stock from the cornsliucking of the olden times. It is said that the orator of the day ran up the "old flag" (bloody shirt) to the top-mast and flpped it, in the old style, io fire the loyal heart, as in war times; and coming with hideous scowls and vigorous stamping of the feet, on some candi date that was supposed to have "Federal lead" in his anatomy. Tbe orator may have personal knowledge as to how the lead got there. It is said that he used to run with the Grundy county militia in those times.

The n0w state of Washington has increased in population over 850 per cent, since 1880. It ii since 1880 that Washington state has started its boom. Prophet George Tritch says there will be a terrific panic all over the country io 1893 such as has been seldom witnessed. Mr. Tritch is an iron dealer. He warns all persons concerned to clear off their mortgages, and not pnt any more in place of the present ones. The Chicago Inter-Ocean has been preparing statistics of the property owned by colored persons in the Union. It finds the aggregate to be (368,000,000. That is an average of (200 for every negro family in America. In their twenty-five years of freedom the ri has gathered that much together. U the figures are correct it is a remarkable showing. In many of the countries of Europe railroads and telegraphs are owned and operated by governments. It is urged in this country that such control would be nnrepublican, and would pUwce too much power in the bands of the government. On the other side again it is claimed thai railroads owned by the nation would have no dividends to earn for private individuals, and would give satisfaction if they only paid expenses. In that case shorter hours and better wages would result for the employes and then would be no occasion for strikes. If government owned the roads three relays oi men working eight hours a day would take the place of the two relays working twelve hours each that now operate trains on various roads with an all night A Great Telescope. The increase in size of the telescope lens, like the increase in power of the steam engine, seems to have no limit. We may enjoy the proud distinction of knowing that only in America can a telescope of the largest size now manufactured be made. Only the darks, of Cambridge, Mass., can make a telescope that has an object lens forty inches in diameter. It must be admitted, however, at the same time that the glass out of which these magnificent lenses are constructed cannot be made in America, but all comes from the firm of Fell Mantois, in Paris. In 1800 Dolland made a lens four Inches across. It was thought then that this was the limit. But mechanical and optical difficulties in the way have been gradually overcome, and the telescope tens has been growing larger and larger, till now the Clarks are about to undertake for the University of Southern California the construction of the monster telescope of the world, with a lens forty Inches in diameter. This, it is said, will bring the moon so near that it will not seem more than a hundred miles away. Meantime the largest telescopes at present in use have all come from the hands of the Clarks. For many years that at St. Petersburg, with its 80 inch lens, also of their make, was the largest. Then they broke their own record, and constructed for the Lick observatory in California a telescope with a 98 inch lens. Now they will break it again, also for California, and construct one with 40 inch glass. It will be mounted in Los Angeles, where the clear atmosphere affords remarkable opportunity for studying the heavens. Meanwhile several years will be required to complete the new glam. Wnat tbe Gas Companies OSMI Do. The electric lighting business employs ioday in this country a capital of $300,000,000. It may be only a question of a short time when gas for Illuminating will be supplanted altogether by its more irilliant rival. Meantime the gas companies ought to look ahead to investing ,n electric light plants if they wish to reep their hold on tlu public. There is one thing they can do. They can gradually prepare to change from gas to elec- Tioity as an illnminant, meantime still manufacturing gas as fuel, which they can furnish cheaply with little change n their plants. Fnel gas means freedom rom smoke, ashes, coal and coal carts. It means health, happiness and comfort a every city, even to Chicago. The suggestion will bear careful consideration. Slectric lighting will shortly be so perfected that all the objections to it will disappear. And the same gas pipes can take fuel instead of lighting material as now. Some cases of epilepsy have been cured by modern surgery. There are cases in which there is an injury or disease in some particular portion of the brain. The skillful physician diagnoses the case id locates the seat of the epilepsy in a (articular portion of the brain by symp- oms referring to that part Then he puts the patient under an aneeethetic, makes an opening in the skull and ex- loses the diseased portion of the brain. Sometimes there is injury to the skull nstead of to the brain. In either case oftentimes the surgeon is able to remove he diseased portion, treat the wound with antiseptic dressings and the patient soon is well again, and frequently is restored wholly, with no return of the terrible affliction of epilepsy. Some new kinds of picnics have come in in the west In Colorado they have watermelon parties, and in New Mexico hey have steer roping tournaments. At ait accounts Harry Crawford was th* champion at the steer party, he having roped and tied a steer in thirty-one seconds. A strike has been successful recently in the mines of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The men carried all their points after holding ont eight weeks, and returned to work. Complaint la general that the new red two-cent stamp will stick to everything until it is clapped upon a letter, when it refuses persistently to stick to that, but comes off even while being thrust into the letter box. A. B. Spofford, librarian of congress, says that in the last twenty years America has not produced a single great genius like Nathaniel Hawthorne or Ralph Waldo Emerson. Hawthornes and Emer- BODS do not grow more than once in a century. Still we have some young people coming on who will prove to be no slouches. The New York Sun declares the general drift of Protestantism is toward Unitarian Universalism, and toward the sentiment that religions teaching shall not be dogmatic, but shall be kept within the line of human reason and justice. Hardly. The general drift of extreme Protestantism is to split into two parties One of these takes the line toward Uni- tarianUm, Buddhism, Universalism, etc., the other tends powerfully and steadily back toward the Roman Catholic church, just as Cardinals Newman and Manning did. We do not begin to hear so much from the agnostics as we did some yean ago. Are they beginning to abandon their ground? Marr Won The South Side Grocers, Have added to their stock an elegant line of Fast Walking. Walter Shirlaw, the artist, has been investigating the subject of fast walking and walkers, and finds that a man -who can walk a mile in eight minutes makes an average stride or step three feet six inches in length. He says further that a man six feet tall can maintain a four foot stride for half a mile. A long step and a quick one at the same time is what gets over the ground fast. It is known that tall people, other things being equal, can walk faster than short ones, yet Bertha von Hillern, the champion woman pedestrian, was not a tall woman by any means. She, however, need her arms extensively, as a bird does its wings, to help propel her. All fast walkers do the same. To walk rapidly the main forward movement must be made from the hips and by the large joint there. The knee should be bent scarcely at all, but the leg kept straight. Few regard this in walking, consequently they have a tumble down, slovenly appearance, as though the body was about to break in two at the knee joint. Keeping the hip joints limber will enable the walker to get over the ground quickly. Mr. Shirlaw says that the practice of fast walking, with head erect, shoulders back and chart thrown np and forward, will in time so quicken one's natural gait a* to add a mile or more to the distance he can travel In an hour without fatigue. Raising · Family. A man writes a whimsical yet quite serious letter to The Indianapolis News narrating the experience of himself and wife in family rearing. The account particularly records the expense of bringing np children. Twenty-six years ago the couple were married. The husband owned a house and got $15 a week wages. At that time he began his expense diary, and has just closed it on the occasion of the graduation from the high school of his fourth and last child. All the four were -well educated by the parents, but at the close of their school years very properly went out and earned their own living, thus taking off the father the burden of their support What it has cost; to rear them is faithfully set forth by the father's journal The publication of it seems enough to scare young men and women from matrimony. His wages were raised as time went on. He estimates that his total earn-' ings in the twenty-six years have been |40,000. His real estate and belongings are now worth a thousand dollars more than when he began life. By that thousand dollars he is better off financially than when he started. The rest of th« money went to support the family and bring np the children. The family man puts it thus: "Given a plant of about $8,- XX) and two employes, man and wife, it las taken, therefore, about$10,000 to each man produced. This of course include* all employes' expenses. The plant if slightly enhanced in value, but the em- ployes have seen their best days. The quality of the goods remains yet to be demonstrated." He asked his wife, good soul and good mother, who loved her children, to tell lim honestly if she would again be wiling to go through the same experience again hi rearing a family, and she answered: "Not for all that money could buy would I go through again what has been necessary to rear a fami- y." The writer confesses that the two employes are proud of their work, but hey emphatically don't want another ob. As to items the family man says: Eome of tho items of expense hare been these Doctor*' bm« (twenty-wen year», H.100 Cand ·II paid, probably the only Instance on record); groceries, average per week first five years, S7, next three,t»; remainder of the twenty-six years, 113 a week. For ten years it has taken on tin ,rerage one pair of shoes per week for the family, ncluding* myself and wife. Tbe most annoying king 1 have erer known Is tlie rapidity with which children wear out shoes. Only one thing approaches it--the high price of children's shoes nerer could understand how, tilth all thecivlllzo- km of the axe, and the demand for cheaper re suits, children's shoes have not been redni.ed In irioa.
