THE EVENING GAZETTED SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 251383. MR. ANti MP,<<. Cleveland arp loud In their praise of southern hospitality, which they declare to hp hearty without being efTtislve. THE TIME of holding the National Democratic Convention is fixed at June 6, instead of July •'!, and thus the Democracy lose their only chance of nominating a candidate upon the anniversary of the day that Grant took Vichs- burg and that saw ths birth of the Declaration of Independence. I IGNATIUS DONNELLY is postponing the publication of his Bacon-Cipher book too long. The interest will die out. He is probably now engaged in proving that Ge, rge Washington is » myth, and that is was General Jrckson who was the first President. A man of brains would as soon attempt to show that there was no such man as Washington, aa to try to prove that Shaks- pere was not ihe author of Shakspere's plays. _________ As WAS confidently predicted by economists, Henry George and Dr. McGlynn are not as devotedly attached to one another aa in former days. It was so patent that they were moved of the spirit of notoriety, each seeking the opima spolla prcdli, that as soon as the spoils lessened each would seek them all. Their lives have been so far apart from those of working men that they could not possibly enter into such sympathy with their cause as to he genuine and true leaders. LEAP TEAK is an odd sort of 11 natural deal that has to come in because .of the excentricityj of the earth's whirl about his majesty the sun; and because it is something a trill e odd, we presume the oddity of having; women take the part of a man in inviting the sterner sex to parties, etc., came in. It does not follow that because this odd day has to come in every four years that therefore every man who is besought to take pity on some forlorn damsel is under the necessity of doing so, if it means that the agreemrnt is marriagu; for when the female assumes the role of the male, •' the tatter may assume as well, the prerogative of the female, and say no, if he can muster that amount of courage. VICTOR I-Iuoo. in his grand probe epic, "Les Miserables," takes for his hero a man who, imprisoned for the stealing of a loaf of bread is by reason of efforts at escape continued a felon , for.nearly twenty years, and who by the extreme goodness of an angelic bishop, is, after his release, reformed and devotes his life to the rearing of a girl whose mother he hug been the unconscious means of bringing to distress and Untimely death. Alexander Dumas, in his masterpiece, "The Count of Monte Cristo," makes Edmond .Dantes, a youth incarcerated at nineteen through the envy of one mail, the jealousy of another, and the ambition of another; emerge after fourteen years of prison life in the Chateau D'lf, with phenomenal wealth, resolved upon revenge. Each, Hugo and Dumas, with the skill of consummate artists, does his work well. . Les Miserables aud Monte Cristo deserve to be crowned, hut let a thousand read the two books and if they have quickened and educated consciences nine hundred and nine ty will pronounce in favor of the hunted, scared, persecuted, proscribed Jean Valjean, rather than the elegent, pale- faced, rich, talented Dantes, who himself admits when he has destroyed Mor- cerf's home, scattered the memberk of the Danglers family and sees Mme. Villefort and her son Edward dead and Villefort mad, that his revenge was a mistaken one. Both these books are powerful sermons and must always be read with deep and absorbing interest not only because of the fecund and brilliant stj^jjbf their ^respective authors, butpjo because of the great moral lessons they convey. But one, Les Miserables, reveals a man who was ever ready to forgive; one who thinking he saw in the Bishop an earthly angel, devoted his life, previously so hardened through ignorance, to good; the other glistens with the talent, energy, brilliancy of Dantes, who swears to punish as he was punished,—and keeps bis oath. Bo is life, through all its ram- iucationa. A novelist rarely creates. There are Dantes and Jean Valjeans everywhere. 'Ihe natural man says, "An eye for an eye. and a tooth for a tooth;" but the man of grace says, "Resist not evil." It is doubtful if any man has lived, who, chafing under wrong done to him, especially when his own heart tells him he has done evil to no man, and particularly when the wrong is gross an4 flagrant, but feels like wreaking vengeance upon the offender. And as he reflects upon the wrong, logic comes to bis help and he says, "Self defense is permissible. My enemies livrt, are active and ready to assail me again. I owe duty to society, to family and to self to defeat their machinations." But if the spirit of the bumble Valjean be la them, they will tind excuse for them, and as Valjean, when Enjolras turned over to him his mortal foe, Javert, eet him tree, so they recall the language of Him, who in His dying agony cried, "Father, forgive them (His enemies) for they know not what they do." Understand: we appreciate the strength of revenge aud the divinity of forgiveness. It is particularly hard for oije who labors untiringly and unselfishly for his race, and whose every ambition is to make better, brighter and gladder.the lives of those with whom hia lot is cast, to be misunderstood and persecuted by the dogs of envy about him. Yet read the agonized words of Edmond Danteswhen he saw tbe culminat on of his revenge iu the family of Villefort and then turn to the death-bed of Valjean who saw the good Bishop smiling upon him from above, while th* remorseful Mart us and the charming aud devoted Cogotte tearfully bwongot him to lire tmd ask wbaifeer, If oaa sa»y only attain unto it it i* not trus, tii*t revenge f» rettoac- '.trewwl MiiU, fergltwBe** i* divine. " tad* ear gMartay sUgtot'* tal*. BEFORE MANY months shall have by the people of this nation.'and our section will be no exception, will be all excited over the matter of choosing a President and minor officers. At such times reading much upon these questions, there is greater impulse to writing than at other times and newspapers find themselves beseiged with manuscript claiming to enlighten the people upon the much vexed, but interesting questions before them. Already this paper has been offered several articles of a political nature aurl from pa3t experience it is persuaded these offers will largely increase. We desire to state that our space is very limited, as our readers know. The GAZETTE Is a newt paper, not an organ of any clique or faction, but a daily history of the times. When this or any other newspaper opens ita columns to articles on a vexed question as politics, it knows in advance it will receive communications full of repetitions of sentiments better exprgssed by professional writers, and that after some one replies to any one that is written, the combatants (that is a better word than disputants) will run Into personal abuse each of the other, and neither will ever be willing that the other Bha'l have the linal reply. We have never yet giv-m permission to any two people to discuss politics in any paper we have managed that either was ever willing to stop, and the man we finally compelled to stop tirst became our enemy for life. Understand: the GAZETTE Is eager for original matter, and it will publish an article upon any subject, religious, political or moral, that contains new thoughts, whether clad in the garments of classic Knglish, or not. Originality In ideas is so rare a product that any paper is eager to get hold of a writing of that kind. But the GAZETTE is the people's paper, — goes to all homes a? a news paper. If we gave consent for people generally to discuss political matters, the paper would be all politics and itu news. The city dallies are immense affairs.whicb llnd room in their columns for everything. Every one of them make specialty of political news, gossip, discussion, scandal, etc. and it is these papers that are bought and read for this kind of reading A country editor is not so circumstanced that he can begin to compete with him. They got hold of political news and comment on it in advance of the country editors. who by the time they try their hand at it can only serve cold bash to their readers. Outsiders who desire to write for the country papers llnd themselves still further behind in their comments. We are at pains to explain this matter at length. Of course this paper has its preferences, as all papers have, and will give Its views from time to time in usual spirit of fair play, misrepresenting nothing, exaggerating nothing, call- Ing no names, repeating no scandals. IN THE penitentiary at, Joliet are 1S05 men and 15 women. And that is ab' out the proportion everywhere. Women do not make criminals. They are men's superior infinitely In all the morals qualities. And yet man cssumt s lordly airs and denies woman's right to cltiz enship and declares himself her master. He is, in physical strength, and, because schools have been conducted for centuries on the principle that woman could not learn what man could, he 1m i acquired knowledge denied to her; but. since she has been free to compete with him in intellectual pursuits she has had no difficulty in keeping pace with him. Her keeping apart, living at home and loving home, has certainly been her strong vantage ground In the Upbuild- ing of those moral qualities that make her object of admiration wherever she' is. While no. brave aud fafr minded man would refuse to accord suffrage to her if she were to demand it, still her true friends will always hope that B';e will not have that ambition. Home Is her province, and there she lords it lovingly but effectually, and she is the great power behind the throne in that she gives bias to her sons, who rule in name.' The cesspool of politics is filthy beyond measure,— it has^ fouled thousands of men. Even woman would be contaminated by it if she drew near it All honor to the sex that has given us Ruth and Mary and Cornelia and Victoria and the host of other noble women upon whose virtues historians and biographers so delight to descant^ "BERTRAM" WRITES asking »ur views upon the dehorning of cattle. That matter has been freely discussed. It Is claimed by those professing knowledge that the operation is no more painful than other mutilations that have been practised upon domestic 1 animals for thousands of years- \\ e do not believe in bestowing needless pain on any animals, and in that view should object to dehorning. But it matters not how many of us object, the matter has gone sp far that horned cattle will soon be things of the past; for it has long been demonstrated that any desired change in domestic animals may be produced in time- -through selection. Thus, at one time, in New .England, a sheep breeder developed a short legged breed of sheep; and the American trotting horse is the product of selection. Even the polled Angus cattle come of heredity; it' will not demand many generations, if dehorning is general, fcr horned cattle to disappear from the face of the earth. Each succeeding generation will show lees and less of these present means of defense and marks of beauty, until finally not a single trace of them will remain. It is to be regretted that growers of kine should consider these appendages neither ornamental nor useful; for a cow without horns is as a donkey without ears, or a horse without a tail. But the decree baa gone forth, and the horn mutt cease to be. . TAKES DO more Interest In Democracy, tince it gave it the go-by and made St. Lotus it* preference. What in the world is politic* for except to help a fellow out? IT is sc.irrelv possible to appreciate the impetus that is being given to msn ufact'jres just now at the.South. Kvi-ty one of the States formerly in it-U-ilion is working as the north and west to the establishing of factories for HI! kinds of industries. Such imr u].s-> tins been given to cotton goods that it is boldly predicted the south will finally eclipse old England herself in this industry, the raw material being right at hand. It need not be added that with the building of factories, protective sentiment strengthens and grows. —At the South among the-negroes one hears much of the ten borrowing days of March. That is to say, that March is a prodigal, awfully wasteful month, which one day gets awfully ooisterous, and another settles down to infinite calm; is now overwhelmed with grief and tears, and another tune is brimful of sunshiny laughter, and is, iience, somewhat of a debtor, either Sorrowing ten days from February or ten da/s from/ April. If borrowing from the formftr paying back in the ast ten days of Its own month; If from April, then having previously paid the debt to February. To be more plain; the negioes say, March often starts back at the 18t; or l()th of February and makes the last days of that- month windy, snowy, rainy, ugly as March is too prone to be; or it, if it fail to do that, and'does not start up with the naughty winds, etc, until ater on, will run right into April until about the 10th of that showery month. Last evening gave some token that March impatient of its birth, had borrowed of February. First there descended rain, the first for many months, and then there followed snow, the beautiful, the wind all the time alowing courageously from that moist (Barter, the east, with slightly northern tendencies. —We have no wish to say aught Unit will distract attention iu the slightest From the upper dam movement, which Mr. Chamberlin assures us is getting along nicely; hence we have for weeks refrained from pushing certain other matters that are deep in th6 hearts of many of our people. We ad.vert to them now and then only that we may sh^ow that they are not forgotten and to give notice that at .the pr .per time they will be brought up and pressed earnestly. One of these is a fair — a fair with all trie j res'ige of former fairs when the crowds come in by the thousands and thousands, together with the a ( ded exhibits which irogress will enable us to make. Fairs dfaw crowds and crowds spend money, and money in circulation multiplies chances for all to get some, As we say, we but advert to it now that our people's memories may be refreshed and that they may reflect upon its value and importance; so that when It Is finally brought up for action, they may be prepared to accept it: This we will say: a city as large and as wealthy us ours, with so many of tastes of divers kinds, can easily afford to tMnk of more than one thing at a time, even though thought be fixed most upon some one particular thing and though it be resolved to (inish that single thing first. Pensions for Ki- Prisoners of War. WARIIINOTON CITY, Feb. 21— The bousa Invalid pfliiBiuns committee will report with favorable recommendation the ex-prisoners of war pension bill. It grants a pension at the rate fixed by law to all who were thirty days or more confined In Confederate prisons, and gives tbem $2 a day outright (or each day more than thirty they were impris- oriod. Favorable reports will also bo made on the bills increasing the pension for total deafness to £30 a month, and limiting the fee of examining pension surgeons to S3 for each case. Arul>» .Utaok • Scotch Mission. LONDON, Feb., 25.— Advices from Lake Nya.ssa state that the Arabs attacked the Scotch niiHsion at that place on Dec. 18, and sot fire to the buildings. The white resident* took refuge in a mud fort and remained there five days, when a force of friendly natives arrived, and the Arabs retired. Coal Gap Choked Them. CHICAGO, Feb.

It Is much mor« important to k«?p a atout spinal colnmn, for there the burdens full ou the physical man. Nature is never nt fnnlt, and where snch stress comes she provides supports. It is the fnnlt of the individual who, through negligence, exposure or imprudence, brings on a collnpse of these supports. Every one knows how the stitch in the back comes, but every one doesn't know the promptest and surest way to cntch it up and cure it permanently. The experiments of those who .know the secret are worth recording. Mr. Frnnk Monroe, Fruncisville, 111., January 30,1887, na.vs: "Three years ago hud rheumatism in thoback(lumbn(ro) so bad I could not dress myself. One bottle of St. Jacobs Oil cured me, and I have not felt it siuco." Mr. J. W. Meirs, 28 Kock street, Lowell, Mass., February, 1887,\vriteR: 'Three years ago was taken with pains in back, hips and legs; could not turn in Ixd except by help of headboard ; applied St. Jacobs Oil several times to my hank. In three days I was sound and limber. Have, not had return since, though I had been subject to spells for many years." Mr. Jacob Mueller, Mnysville, Wia., February. 1887, writes: "In '84 was troub'led wit'li an nwful backache, and suffered some time. St. Jacobs Oil cured me permanently; no return." Mr. K. W. Elliott, Lmliugton. Mich., February 3, 1887, slates: "My wile hod not stooped in ten years to button her shoe; she suffered intensely with lame back. .She tried St. Jacobs Oil; four bottles cured her, and she has hnd no trouble in Bix or seven years." Mr. Horace E. Hopkins, New Albany, Indiana, writes, June 10, 1R87; "Suffered twe years ago with acute pnins in the back, also a slight touch of pleurisy. In one hour obtiiined great relief from St. Jacobs Oil; three applications cured me. In the morning pains were gone, nnd -have had no recurrence of it since." May 17, 1887, Mr. A. A. Cunningham, Perryopolis, Pa., writes: "My wife waa sorely afflicted witli lume back; suffered several years. She used innumerable liniments and plasters without relief; used Bt. Jacobs Oil, nnd she was cun-d by it, and would not 'keep hous£ without it" Tht maxjm outfit to be, keep a straight, strong back, and the rest of the anatomy will be Itroug also.
