Never in the history of Logansport has such interest been ehown in the result of the Republican City Convention. The opera house last evening was crowded and the interoBt was intense. It was conceded that the Democratic City Convention and dem. ocratlc primaries had been captured by enemies of the people and the republicans were looked to for rescue. The democratic convention was sllmly attended and the attendance was small. There was a chilly atmosphere prevailing and a lack of confidence was manifest. The Republican convention was earnest, enthusiastic and hearty. The contrast in the ticket is great. The Republican ticket is essentially one thing and the Democratic ticket is another. This does not apply to any single quoa. tlon but to every questiom which affects or concerns the people. The condition of the public mind is naturally excited. Calm, careful consideration is needed. The Journal asks this and confidently expects It. The republican nominees will be elected In a man and deserve election. Later the Journal will enter into detail on this subject. For the present it asks a calm consideration of the situation and an earnest effort on the part of every citizen, regardless of party, to promote the best interests of the people and to advocate that which seems best. Such an advocacy moans support of the republican nominees. All the Influences hostile to the best interests of the people have succeeded in the democratic primaries. They have been defeated in the republican primaries, and the people should awaken to this fact. The situation is critical. The Journal has never deceived you. It has never misrepresented or exaggerated. It has always been cautious, calm and careful. It aska 'you now to be calm and to reflect. It asks the public to stand by it against the dangers which, by all the devices of secret conspiracy, threaten. COMPARE the two tickets and the sentiment which nominated them- and calmly reflect on the situation. The Journal has confidence in the decision of a republican convention and never attempts to control it. It can not criticise in the present case. It believes that the convention had a greater wisdom than any one man is capable of. Good men Buffered defeat and good men vtwe nominated. The ticket named will be elected if every lepublican votes it and there is no reason why every republican should not. It may not represent one man's opinion on this candidate or that but it does represent the opinion of a large and representative delegation, every member of which was anxious to promote the public welfare. The Journal is proud of the convention and of the able and fair way in which it sought to promote the best intercuts of the people. JOHN E. REDMOND has mailed hli declination to the democratic central committee and will not be the candidate for council in the Fourth ward. Mr. Redmond also telta hii neighhon that his political views h»ve changed somewhat. __ THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOB'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharoi, May 6th, 1892. OUR SICK BA1F The sprightly Writer I* OPK« For Ute DellKi>t« of Outdoor Ute. Special Correspondence. NKW YonK. April 11, 1891. Did you ever have the chlllsP Did you ever feel yourself as cold as a block of Ice while evsry nerve in your body was dancing and your teeth were chattering and making a noise decidedly autftfflBt've of the bells on a fool's oapP Did you ever know what it was to have hot water bags put on you, to be muffled up In blankets, to have every fur cloak in the house piled on you and then to feel as if you were freezing? To follow this up. did you ever have the fever that cornea after the chill, that burns your cheeko and lips, that makes you feel as If you were having a foretaste of your future, and that causes you to wonder which, after all, is the worst—the chill that never Rets warm or the fevsr that never g»,ts cold. That is the sort of thing that 1 have been undergoing. Of course, there have been times in between when neither the cold nor the heat have controlled me nnd during that time ] have been wondering what we were all made for; why people ever have to be sick, and to feel as If I would like to get down on my knees and thank the man who discovered quinine. You can't be cheerful and have the ohillB—they are not compatible. They seem to knock the cheerfulness even out of one's visitors. People oome in with every determination to make you feel happier, and then im. mediately contrast the pillow and your face, and'looking at you, say: MY GOODNESS, HOW WHITE YOU ARE!" This Is such an irritating fact that you open your eyes as wide as you can, stare at your so-called friend, and if you have strength enough, ask if she expected to find you black. She looks at you sorrowf.ully, concludes that you are near death, th»t this is a form of mania, and from that time on ehe speaks in a low voice, as if there were a corpse in the room. She tells you of all the people she has ever known who died young; of how the chills invariably run into something else; of the folly of having the sort of doctor you do, and she ends up by kissing you good bye, and saying in a perfectly doleful tone that she hopes »he will have another opportunity to speak to you. Now, will you please tell me why that sort of a woman is allowed to come and see anybody who IB not quite well? Any jury would proclaim an invalid not guilty if she shot a woman like that. Her only safeguard, as far as I am concerned, has been, that, first, I did not have a pistol; second, I would not know how to use one if I did have it, and thirdly, that I am hoping that I may revenge myself in a different way; 1, e., when she la nick I will go and condole with her. Next in beastiality to thli woman is the one who comes in with the Inten» tlon of cheering you up. You have shaken with the chills, you have burned with the fever, and you are BO weak that if the house caught on fire you would just lie itlll and be burned with the rest of the rubbish. Bat this woman refuses to recognize you as an Invalid, She says she never saw you looking better in your life. She an^ nounces that you are getting fat, that you have got a good color, and, In what she means to be a playful way, she tells you that you are only lazy, not really sick, and that It is quite time you got up and took a good, long walk. That ii when you wish the fool-killer was around, and you wonder what In the world you have been eo ill for if you haven't something to show for it. You do not want to be told that you look like a ghost, neither do you want people to say you are lazy, and that is what the would-be cheerful visitor invariably does. COHMON SENSE IN SICK ROOMS. The right kind of woman to visit yo« when you are ill IB the one who lets the subject of your illness entirely alone, unless she permits you to do a little moaning on your own private account; who telli you what is going on in the world; who makes you understand that you are missed, who brings you cheery books, a flower, or something strange to eat. When I came into this world It was elected by the fairies that good health should not be one of the gifts at my christening, so I have had the doubtful pleasure of receiving all sorti of condolence and making the acquaintance of all sort* of condoling friend* and doctors. Once I wai attended by a doctor who believed that the calling of a ipide a ipade even la the oate of lllneti was quite unnecemry, and wai ID modeit that it took him three, quarteri of a.day to think out how I could tell him where my p»in§ were without cauiing him to bluih, and later on bow I could Mk him whether whetfl got up, I ought to wear one or two flannel pettlooatf. H« Ttawed me at a distance, felt my pulse in the most delicate mancer a yard off, and referred to the place where I had the : rheumatism as my lower "limbs." Everytlme he said that I contradicted him and said "legs;" and then he would raise one hand in the air as if he thought I wore out of my senses, give an apolegetic cough, look at my mother and say, "Don't mind her madam, It's the remit of the fever." How do you suppose that man ended? In the way I always know he would. He ran away with another man's wife. TVPES OF DOCTOHS. Another time I had a doctor who Bald be believed In the appreciation of pain. He thought it was good tor women, and he uaed to let me howl w lth the rheumatism, groan with pains in my lung, and be altogether miserable rather than give mo an anxathetlc. Personally, I don't believe he knew anything at all about them. He was very fond of saying that he was self-educated. At last the family met him in a body, and told him that I would have to have one quiet night—I got it, but it seemed likely at one time to have been a night that would have lasted forever, for he gave me an overdose of laudanum, and if it had not been for the energy of the family In banging me around and pouring hot coffee down me. I should not be telling my experience, but should be counted among the people who are entirely forgotten. A good doctor is a groat blessing, and when I say a good doctor, I mean a man who, when he comes In, makes you conscious of the fact that he is master of the situation, that he is going to make you better; that he is strong and healthy himself, and that be knows and fully understands every little ache and pain that you have got, and that because he is a man he knows bow perfectly pitiful it Is, physically, to be a weak woman; that while be is sorry for you, be is going to cheer you up, and give you something to make you feel better. That is a good doctor. Nobody is ever going to get better of any illness In this world who lacks faith in the doctor. That is the reason that I never could have a woman doctor. I should know that she had aches jast like mine, and I should feel on a level with her. In fact, I should probably feel superior to her, because I would realize that she would think as she got the better of her aches that 1 ought to get the bet. ter of mine. He knows just how ml» erable you are, how wretched you are, and ho is going to take trouble off your shoulders. He is going to get the better of the illness for you. Sometimes I think that is one of the reasons that doctors make such good novelists. They comprehend BO beautifully THE PHYSICAL SIDE OF WOMEN, and they know just how close it is to the mental side, and they can read her like the two-volume book that she is. And so they can draw true pictures of her. You don't know who the doctor novelists are? Well, first, of all there was Balzac; then there was Charle* Reade. Nowadays, there is Zola, Daudet, who, if he did not practice, at least studied. Then there is Conan Doyle. Then there weie the Flau- berte and the two De Gonoourts, and De Maupassant. They are all that I remember now, but I am sure there were a great many others. But the great novelist of all time, Balzac, is probably the greatest proof of the value of understanding woman physically before an attempt is made to write or her mentally and spiritually. Talking about myself? Well, I have done a good bit of that in this babble. But you see I can't help it. If you had shaken with me and burned with me and drank koumiss with me, and taken quinine with me, you would feel just as I do. You would believe as all invalids do, that people are Interested in their woes. They are all selfish, thinking that the only thing in life worth talking about is themselves, their ailments, their doctors and their miseries. Miseries of mind you know, because, BETWEEN THE ACTS. There is always time enough to be miserable to think that nobody o»reu for you, and that when you die you will be forgotten. That you are goinrtodle, and that you wonder why you don't hurry up and do it. That you are sure everybody is sitting Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE around waiting for it. When you get a little better you grow obstinate, and conclude you wont die; and then you are cross and you bate the doctor, and you wonder why ho don't devote all his time to you; and then one day the sunshine comes in very bright and you think you would like to go out in the fresh air. and lo! and behold, you are well. You are not so very anxious to be better. It is a sort of Insult. You had made up your mind that you would never get really right. It is a kind of anti-climax. Everybody had made up their minds that you had mad* up your mind to either a life-long illness, or a speedy departure, and now you are getting bolter, and you can laugh and take a certain interest in a new bonnet, and all of those sighs bespeak the coming of health. After all one is glad. Glad ihat chills are forgotten and the fever gone; thankful for the koumiss and the doctor, and very j well satisfied to stay in the world a (little longer, and to have strength enough to add to a typewritten manuscript the three letters that go to form the name of BAB. INTERESTING SCIENCE. Born* of the Wondem of tUe MIcro»cop)c World of liactort*. The most interesting facts of science are sometimes concealed under hard and repellent names. Who would suppose, for instance, that such words as "phototaxis" and "chemiotaxis" realty cover very fascinating discoveries, for the enjoyment of which no profound scientific knowledge whatever is required. Phototaxis means the influence of light on the movements of the simplest living organisms. The facts that it includes aro as surprising as they are interesting. There is a kind of bacterium, shaped like a minute rod and of » purple color, which exhibits this influence of light in a beautiful manner. Indeed, it has been named the li^ht-measuring bacterium. II a drop of water containing these bacteria is placed under a microscope, and a narrow beam of light is thrown upon any part of the field of view, the organisms immediately flock to the illuminated spot, until by their great number they turn that part of the water to the color of wine. Then, too, they discriminate between colors; for when Enprelman threw instead of a beam of white liffht s, microscopic spectrum into such a drop, the bacteria avoided the purple and crowded into lifi-nt of that color which is absorbed in passing through their bodies. Just so another bacterium, the eu- g-lena, which is red or orange-colored at the forward end, always advance toward blue light when a choice is g-iven to it among the colors of the spectrum. Chemiotaxis is a similar phenomena, depending not upon light but upon the presence of chemical agents. An instance of this is furnished by the behavior of the common bacterium termo when in the water-drop containing a little oxypen is disen<ra)red. Immediately thfi organism flock to that part of the water where the oxygen is beinjr liberated. Similarly other organisms are attracted by sugar or by some acid. One of the most wonderful cases is that of a kind of plasmodium, called Badhamia, an organism that consists of transparent, structureless, living- material which spreads itself along a wet surface. When, near the edge of this flat, shapeless, yet living thing-, a bit of fungus is placed, that part of the Bad- hamia which is nearest becomes excited, and streams of living- material begin to flow through the mass toward that point. Then the organism commences to grow out toward the fungus and gradually envelops it, and the operation ends with the absorption of the fungus. These curious phenomena assume » new Interest when we learn that what we call inflammation is a result of chemiotaxis. Whenever disintegration takes place through injury inflicted upon any of the living- tissues of the body, certain organic cells which exist in the blood and other fluids congregate at the inflammatory center and feed upon the products of disintegration. It has therefore been suggested that these "chemiotactic cells" are like scavengers in the blood, which tend to free it from infection.— Youth's Companion. th« Mabel— Wjth what verses are youth* most familiar?
