heat, tho primordial cause of all -life.
Here in unity of life, reaching cveju to the

They ditl'ermore than consumption, cau

and destroys the body. This is the unit

i AXOTHEIt AKD ItAIlEn CASE, j
I' find. my patient is .down with Bright's
disease t the kidneys. It is well known
that with every movement of mind and
body, we use up the heat that mvist lie sup
plied from food, and also, the ml corpuscles
oft he blood; their shells or the used por-
utins 01 rue Oiood are caueu nren.t mis
should be passed off by the kidnfys, or
death soon follows. The coinplaintjcalled
ltriirht's disease of the kidneys is iwhere
they fail to perform their functions. In
such cases UiiANDUETii's Pills arcjneees
sart every day. The bwels must not only
j do fheir proper work, but they niujt also
! act for and in place of the urinary oirgar.s.
I also apply-an Ai.lcock's Pj.asteH over
each kidnev, and tlius stimulate them to
a healthy action ; and if the case is recent,
ft ctire is almost certain. 1
Too much cannot be said about the val
ue of blood. The body cannot have too
inCich blood, any rnftre than the vigorous
tree can nave too much sap. It you wish
to destroy life, bleed. If the tree is in your
way, girdle it, but don't treat human be
imrs as ybu do trees. i
Finally, Ijrakdketu's Pills should be
taken on an empty stomach, and there will
be no griping or nausea, aud when All
cock's Plastichs: are used for local troubles
a few doses of Buasdiietii's Pill will
make the cure permanent. I T

Discovert of an Asbestus Mixk Some

with Mr. Jacob Ncwberger, of New York j

In 1870 Illinois produced one-fifth
all the conrirrown in the United States. I
and, according to tho latest advices, the
crop of 1880 will bear about tho ;same
proportion to the corn croo of the conn-!
try. The report of the Board of Agficnl- j
tore shows. that during the past 21 years,
after receiving a fair remuneration for
the cost of the production of their i corn
the farmers of that State have realised a
net profit of $1,000,000. The average
yield , per acre during the past season was
'i3 bushels, and in 21 years this has bte:i
exceeded only eight times, the average in
1SG2 being 40. The present corn crop of
23 1, 000,000 bushel has been exceeded
only three, -times in ldo 2.SMHKyp;
1S77, 270,000,000, and in litfi), StKJ.OtHI,-
0(H). Tho profits on wheat have of late '
years increased the wheat acreage at the
expeuse of corn. Tho average price in i
past years has been areater by some cents
than tho average for 18S0, but tho total
value of the crop was $rfl,(KK),(MK). Ketcs
As tho end of the session of tho Legis
lature approaches, the work which; tho
committees have been doing becomes more
evident. Much 'of the necessary legisla
tion has been prepared and put in shape
and is now ready for discussion and; ac
tion. The machinery bill has been i re
ported, tho educational bill, bills provid
ing for thciiisano asylums and fori the
establishment of criminal circuits mid
other bills of equal importance. There
are about twelve more working days,ibut
tho members being now free from the hea
vy work of the committee rooms will bo

The Senate will hereafter meet at 10
o'clock and the House will have night
sessions. A rule may possibly be adopted
prohibiting the introduction of bills after
the first of the month, except on leave
given. On yesterday tho Senate passed
the Insane Asylum bill,- appropriating
$i:000 annually for all of the asylums.
It also passed a bill amendatory of ;the-
constitution, and requiring tho payment
of the Hdl tax as a prerequisite tt votin,
and giving all the poll tax to educational
purposes. The consideration of the Dur

JEUE BLACK QUOTES SOME STKAXGE IAN
OCAOE BY THE PRESIDENT ELECT, j
New YonK, Feb. 23. The national a"pti
monopoly league held a meeting in tha
Cooper union. Judge Jeremiah S. Black
was the principal speaker He said that
railroad corporations having been put in
possession of the public highways f the
country were bound to run I them in tire in
terest of the public, to whom they belong.
Corporations were-public servants, but they
had violated their trusts for private gains.
The voice of the complaint iconics up from
all quarters of the country. In speaking
of a meeting he once t isded at Clcave
land, Ohio, Judge Black-said he heard Gen.
Garfield say that railroad corporations
wielded such power that the time was fast
approaching when a conflict would take
place unless the railroad corporations were
throttled by the strong arm of the law.
The agitation, Judge Black said, that had
just commenced must go on until fifty ruil
lians of people know that they were fifty
millions strong. The question wa3 what
could be done to put an end to the system.
The only hope was in Congress. The sec
retary read a letter from Senator William
Windum sympathizing with the movement.

! a reoent numjr 0fthc Xorih American, at-
tributed to their "imperfect higher educa
tion," but now in the last number of the
same review comes Mr. John D. Philbrick,
who shows conclusively that "higher edu
cation" is not a fault. The cause is to be
sought elsewhere. In seeking it we natur
ally turn to the "great evil;" as the temper
ance people say, whisky; which is reported
to be the fruitful source of ninetenths of" all
crime. But here again we' are met by the
Maine statistics that are hard to understand,
for C. II. Goddard, by a comparison f the
criminal reports for 1831 and .1880, demon
strates that while the increase in population
in Maine during that period was but 14
per cent., the increase in high crimes was
379 per cent., and of other felonies at the
rate of 207 per cent. In 1S31 divorces were
rare, but now Maine leads. all of New Eng
land in driving a thriving business in the
dissolution o.f marriage ties and bastardi
zing children. And, strange to say, these
deplorable results have come about during
the strict enforcement of prohibitory legis
lation, so the increase of crime there cannot
be laid to the door of intemperance. Look
ing at the matter without prejudice, we con
fess that we cannot account for this increase
in crimes in the New England States other
wise than by laying the blame on the natural
disposition of the people who inhabit that
part of the moral vineyard. ; It is without
doubt a slander to impute this law-breaking
tendency to high education, and certainly it
ought not to be attributed to enforced tem
perance. We fear the people of Maine are
still making good the old too

thci full confidence of the prohibition-
ists in the good sense and iiiiejnity of

The joint prohibition committee
then gave its views on the subject.
MiL Tucker was airainst the fruit fen-
tuie of Judge Reade's bill. It would
lead to perjury in many ways : the
tieonle would smear a barrel of wins-
kyover with dried apples and swear
it was brandy. He had seen as yet
, . ..
but one common sense plan proposed
and that was Mr. Bull's of Greens-
bo, to let the people vote prohibi-
tion or no prohibition, and if-arried
in the State the Governor to call an
extra session and have the law passed,
Thiry could do it in a day's lime and
at little cost.
Mr. Grainger said the great diver-
sity of the friends of temperance only
showed they were not agreed among
themselves, and it would be difficult
for any one to devise a law to satisfy
alii He was for the most practical
and common sense view to be sub-
milted to the people. The Legisla-
ture should at least remedy the abuse
of retailing liquor so-as to make each
barkeeper give a justified bond be-
t ween one hundred and a thousand
dollars, and if so muchas a drink was
sold to a man perceptibly drunk he
might recover $25 or $50 out of that
Mr. Webster said he had a misty
idea somewhere about his head that a
temperance law was never worth the
paper it was written on, yet he would
go for it with the majority, and while
never noted for having much love for

wisest letting the people vote wheth-
i er or not they wanted it, and if they
did:, give it to them.
Mr. Bowman was unqualifiedly in
lavyr of a straightout liquor law, but
not: getting that he was iu favor of
string and decided restrictions. He

position to let up ou apples and peach-

Too Cold for UiclFIsIi.
A remarkable circumstance in con
nection with the recent cold snap was
the effect on the fish along the coast,
large schools being driven in shore
and in shallow water. Strantro as it
may leem, it is asserted that the fish,
particularly bass and trout, were ob
served to throw themselves bodily out
of the water on land. An old negro
caught thirty-one very fine large bass
in this way at Raccoon Key, near
Warsaw. On Saint Catharine's a net
thrown in the wafer 'was almost in- ,.'
stantly filled by large fish and fisher
men found some difficulty in hauling
the nets in. Others were observed to
kill them in the water with oars.
This novel occurrence was witnessed
generally all along the islands' to the
southward and in the rivers near the
coast, Savannuh ((?.) New.

break, shooting one of the guards iu

American line j but were overtaken
by the guard, who firejl on them. The
prisoners, being armed, returned the
fire. Three prisoners were killed and
the others surrendered. Two of the
guards were seriously wounded. The
prisohcrs heard last night that they
were to betaken to Chihuahua to-day
which they believed meant To be shot
on the road. Hence, their desperate
attempt at escape.
Rich boys are often spoiled and
their energies sipped and undermin

use.of money, and the lack of that
discipline which comes from indU
gence. There arc families which en.
dure miseries untold because they
live beyond their means because
they wish to dress, and visit, and en
tertain, as neighbors do who have
tenfold their income. 'fTruly, niai
walketh in a vain show!" Of this
narrow and vulgar ambition, a brood
of sordid and unwholesome things artr
born. It is impossible that children
shall develop symmetry of character
