TO Our subscription list is growing BO f mentu of or in the city and there ia necessarily Bonto irregularity in tha delivery of the paper We hope that all who fail to receive THE regularly will promptly report to the office either personally or by telephone Our number is OF The democratic party is preparing or another campaign of intellect Thia statement is based on the net that democratic and independent pers edited by democrats are ally harping about the tariff It is next to impossible to read a democratic without running afoul of from one to several items informing its readers that the people are complaining of their oppressive burden of the This ia generally followed by the usual arguments calculated to show that nil kinds of tariff amounts to taxation The tariff on glassware is now hold up as an ex- ample of tho horrors of a protective tariff They call upon congress to re- duce the duty 20 per cent and thus relieve the people Now the facts are that glassware was never so cheap aa it now The quality was never so good aa now and it is hard to see where the burden lies unless it is in the brains of our overburdened democratic editors It is time enough for these gentlemen to complain for the people when the people request them to do so otherwise it is incumbent on them to show that the tariff has advanced prices on any manufactured articles manufactured in this country and not cheapened them Until then their cry will reach an in- credulous constituency TO The man who can wantonly abuse a dumb brute is certainly to say the least a small-souled individual It ia a common thing to see on the streets of as well as many other cities poor half-fed and crippled horses and toiling away at loads which are too heavy or era ui their weak condition These Animals are placed by their torsin some or alley in the sun with but little provender and allowed to stand for hours a prey to flies and other Insects On lust Friday the police reported that a horse ell on West Main street from sheer exhaustion These occur so frequently that they de- mand the attention of humanitarians This understands that in wo have a society or the prevention of cruelty to animals This society ought to be more vigilant in these matters even to the employment i necessary of agents If it ia without funds the good people of Decutur we fell satisfied would contribute the sum necessary to carry out this much needed protection to animals Tho police too we believe are inclined with the proper ment to give much assistance Indeed they have already demonstrated their willingness to do so Let those who are recognized as leaders in this matter move at once reduction o doty on k what it most providing a tariff Is tax wit alleges Gall b already on the free list THE Herald does not have courage enough to make the assaults upon THE DESPATCH it has tho disposition to make would make if it thought it could do so profitably On the oilier hand the editor of that paper has placed himself on the level of a bushwhacker by indulging in tirades and ments TIIK lie is now engaged on the streets in ing away the fact that an order or 200 extra copies of Tile was sent from Monticello week Ho states that these copies were sent or the purpose of deceiving the public and to swell the edition of this paper TIIK has no note of tho fact and could not in fairness be charged with any such intention Thd facts are that an order was received Friday night for 200 extra copies of THE DESPATCH The order was filled in a business way and the papers have been paid for That is all there is of it We invite the editor of the Herald if he has anything to say concerning us in the future to conic out in the col- of his and say it like a man We are not here to make a contest with him in tho streets and alleys of The statement that he does not purpose to advertise tbe new paper by mentioning it in the columns of The Herald is stale and decidedly childish TIIK DESPATCH is now read every morning by people than The Herald This that the daily circulation of THE DESPATCH exceeds that of Tho Herald both in the city and in the country Will The Herald deny Foraker is having it all hia own way in Ohio He will be elected governor by a majority greater than the republicans have cast in that state or many yean He will also in own triumph see a republican legislature elected that will send a republican to senate in place of who bought his way into trial body from the democratic legislature in as hod carrier to the democratic party calls upon congress tbe duty on glass 20 per cent rbes He you want

tbe conductor of an induction coil At a distance of six motors a magnetic needle is affected by it and It will be quite deranged if brought near The energy of this singular influence varies with tha hour of the day All powerful about S o'clock in the afternoon it is luring the night At times of storm its intensity augments to striking proportions During rain the plant seems to succumb and bends Its head during a thunder shower it remains there without force or virtue even if ono should shelter it with an umbrella No shock is felt at that time in breaking the leaves and the needle is unaffected beside it One never by any chance sees a bird or in- sect alight on tho electric plant an instinct ms to warn them that they would find sudden death It is also important to remark that

Stuart exhibition There nro a sentimental sense of partisans of Mary Queen of Scots and of tho young chevalier Jacobites abound in tho very test but it is questionable whether there yet linger political adherents of Henry VIII or Queen Elizabeth The materials or a Tudor are amazingly copious and rich but the display itself must vindicate its claims to public recognition less as an abstract
