The oso of salt as a condiment is so generally and universally believed in as, necessary that we rarely hear ii word against its excessive use, but there are a m u l t i t u d e ef persons who ont far too m u c h salt; eat it on every- t h i n g -- o n int-at, fish, patatoes, melons, in butter, ou tomatoes, turnips and squashes, in bread and on a host of foods, too numerous to mention. To so great an extent is it used that no food is relished which has not a salty taste, which is often very delicate. Now the amount of salt required in the system is comparatively small, and if the diet has been rightly compounded, very little is necessary. Some go so far as to discard its use altogether. Whether this is wise or not we will not here consider. What are some of the evils of tho excessive use of salt? They are to paralyze the nerves of taste, or to pervert them so that they cannot enjoy anything which has not a salty flavor, and in addition there is a direct tax on both the skin and the kidneys iu removing it from tho blood. Whether the skin is harmed by this tax we do not know. Possibly it is not greatly in- juied, yet we kuow that few people possess a healthy skin; but it is now pretty well settled that au excessive use of salt does overtax the kidneys in its removal, and that the great n u m b e r of eases of derangement and disease of these organs is due to this cause. It takes only a little time to WELLINGTON IS_OUT FOR M'COMAS The Senator, /or PuJllIc;.) Kcmtonti, UackK learn to enjoy many kinds of food w i t h o u t salt, aud we advise our readers to look into this matter and try to diminish the use of this condiment as far as possible. We believe they will be better for it. The Jokers liming. A Denton business man was the innocent victim of the practical joker the other day. The gentleman was about to start for a town in an adjoining county where there is dispensed that upon which, when it is red, we are advised not to look. The joker knew this,and there was treachery in his heart when he approached him and gave him a daintily-written note, and asked with a smile that he deliver the same to the proprietor of a dispensary where the ardent may be obtained, and then, with a wicked leer, walked away, chuckling to himself. Tbe unsuspecting aud accommodating victim promised, and he did not forget his promise, for when his business in the village w,is transacted he remembered the note, and 'straightway drove up to the place, hitched his horse and walked in. In a little while the polite proprietor came in, and the missive was placed in his hands. It read : "MR --. Will you Ire kimt enough to refuse to allow my husband lo liaxe any liquor to-Uay. When under its influence he is very disagreeable, and causes trouble. By complying to this request ou will greatly oblige, MHi--" With an apologetic mien the proprietor said : "I am very sorry, Mf. --, but I cannot sell you anything to-day. I cannot disregard the lady's wish." Big interrogation and exclamation points and unutterable astonishment were written all "over the faco of the speechless and innocent victim, aud he had to admit on reaching home that the joker had "scored one." Senator Wellington on Tuesday broke his long silence on the Senatorial contest and came out openly' for Judge Louis E. McComas to succeed Senator Gorman. There is no longer doubt that these rival leaders in Western Maryland have buried the hatchet, and that Wellington is sincere in support or the Judge. He said to-day that the great majority of the best Republicans in the State wanted to see McComas made Senator, and that the sentiment of the independent voters of tho State, without whose aid the Republicans could not h a v e carried the State, were also in favor of McComas. It is now believed that Senator Wellington can influence enough votes, together with those controlled by Governor Lowndes and Judge McComas himself, to as- sure the election of tho Judge. The political interest of tho legislature will center in the election of a United States Senator, the state treasurer and one police commissioner for Baltimore city. The balloting for Senator will begin in joint assembly of both houses at noon, on the 18th inst., and if no selection is then made the joint assembly will reconvene every day, at noon, until a result is reached. As is well- known, the candidates mentioned for the United States senator are Major Alexander Shaw, General Thomas J. Shryock, Hon. John V. L. Findley and Mr. Charles J. Bonaparte, of Baltimore city, Judge Louis E. MeComas, of Washington county; Congressman Isaac A. Barber and Colonel J. C. Mullikin, -of Talbot county, and Congressman Sydney E. Mudd, of Charles county. Postmaster General James A. Gary may also be drawn into the contest, as may others whose names have been mentioned, more or less prominently, and still others whose names have not been mentioned at all.

The bridegroom's face grew pale and b l a n k , it was too late to jilt; as through the pnrlor floor he sunk, he sadly said, ,'I wilt." that my statement in the items from Tanyard in tegard to the Hollanders was partly incorrect. Allow me to say that it was -wholly correct. Mr. Nagel was a German, but he rented land belonging to the Bureau of Immigration," us did also Mr. Diselber- ger, who went with Mr. Nagel to. North Carolina. Several of the Hollanders 7tate moted away, and one family, who are still here, were packed up ready to move to Somerset county, but got disappointed at the last in securing the farm they expected to go to. The house which Mr. Nagol occupied is vacant, and two others near by, all belonging to the Bureau of Immigration. Please insert this in your paper, and oblige, Yours truly, S. A. COLLINS.

The State Sanitary Live Stock Board has drafted a law to stamp out tuberculosis among the bovines of this State. We have received from Asa B. Gardiner, Jr.,Gleneoe, Baltimore county, a letter enclosing the following comments on the law, with the request to publish them: "As no regard seems to have been paid to the manner in which this proposed law will affect the dairymen and cattle-breeders, and as it will become a law if no step is made to deprive it of its h u r t f u l features, a meeting has been called by some of the most influential men in these industries, to be held at the Carrollton Hotel, Baltimore, at one p. m., Tuesday', the 18th of January. All,whose business is likely to be affected, are invited to attend. "There is no doubt that milk production, and cattle raising can be benefited by a reasonable, practical law; such has been the experience of States enacting such reasonable tuberculosis laws; it is also a fact that those States that have passed laws similar to the one now to be put before the Legislature have done so at tremendous expense to the Sta'te, and the great and lasting injury of the interests of the farmer. The importance of this move should not be overlooked, for it affects the health of llie people, as-well as tie business of many farmers." A Cure For Lame Back. "My daughter when recovering from an attack of fever, was a great sufferer from pain in the back and hips,"writesLouden Grover, of Sardis, Ky.
