Let the ratification meeting be a rou-

It is said that Rutherford B. Hayes
has come oat squarely for Blaine.
There are no tattoo marks on our

Blaine, so that its choice i3 now re

General Grant says that Cleveland
and Hendricks is the strongest ticket

The Independent Republicans de

Chicago's leading sporting man,. Pa

The Belleville Zeitung, one of the
most influential Republican papers print
ed in the German language in Southern
Illinois, bolts the Blaine ticket and
comes squarely out for Cleveland.
The New York Sun says; "The
question in the campaign of 1884 should
relate to the protection of American
honor, by the election of an honest man
to be President of the United States."

Down the Kiver.
The Wilmington Light Infantry,
Capt. R. H. Beery, took a trip down
the riyer on the Passport this morning.
They did not turn out with very full
ranks; but when they marched past our
office we were impressed with the fine
soldierly appearance and the precision
in which they moved. The line was as
near perfect as it was possible to have
been, and would have dope credit to a
company of veterans. The have gone
to pay a friendly visit to their brothers-in-arms
of the Smithville Gnards, and
there will probably be no drill, as was
at first anticipated.
Besides the Infantry there was a
large number of ladies and gentlemen
among the. passengers, and we trust
that all may pass a pleasant day.
Color of Flowers.
It has for a long time been known
that the color of growing flowers can
be altered by simply mixing a little
dyestuff with the mold in the flower
pot. No one, however has hitherto
thought of changing the color of flowers
when out. A distinguished botanist
has found that by simply soaking the
stems of cut flowers in a weak dye
solution their color can bo altered at
will without the perfume ot richness
being destroyed. Most beautiful effects
are produced . by preparing lakes
Singular to say, flowers refuse to
absorb certain colors, while they dis
pose of others in different manners. Jf
placed in a mixed solution they make
a complete analysis, and some lilies
which had been treated with purple
showed distinct red and blue veins, the
colors having been divided in the pro
cess of absorption.

will make it hot.for his opponents

him on the stump.

A Narrow Escape.
On Wednesday eyening a number of
colored boys were bathing in the river
at the foot of Church street, when one
of them, who could not swim, got be
yond his depth and would have drown
ed if it bad not been for the timely as
sistance and cool courage of Mr. John
C. McCartney, a ship carpenter, who
was working upon a flat at the ship
yard. The boy had sunk twice when
Mr. McCartney, seeing his peril,
plunged into the riyer and caught him
lust as he wa3 sinking for the third and
and probably last time. Mr. Mc
Cartney is nearly 60 years of age and
had the disadvantage of being encum
bered with his clothing to binder him
in his efforts. The boy was in a very
exhausted condition when taken out of
the water, but soon recovered. When
we see the carelessness of boys, who
cannot swim, in venturing beyond their
depth, the only surprise to us is that
cases of drowning do not occur more
Baked Tomatoes With Cream.
Cut the tops trom a dozen, large to
matoes, wipe them with a wet towel
and scoop out the inside with a teas

with enough butter to cover the bot
tom, and when the butter is hot put in
the tomatoes and quickly brown them
on the under side; when the bottoms of
the tomatoes are brown take them op
without breaking them," and lay them
carefully in an earthen dish just large
enough to hold them ; into the pan where
they were browned put the pulp previ
ously scooped out of them and set
the pan over the fire; soak in cold wa
ter as mueh stale bread as there is to
mato pulp, until it is solt, and then
squeeze out the water and put the bread
with the tomato pulp; season them
highly with salt and pepper and stir
them over the fire nntil they are scald
ing hot; use this mixture to fill the to
matoes, pour around them enough
cream to moisten them, dust dry
crumbs over the surface, and then bake
the tomastoes in a moderate oven for
twenty minutes. Serve them hot in the
dish in which they were baked.
