' of 67 delegates cbotm by the several precincts,,
nnd the teveral precincts of the county will be
entitled to representation in said convention as
Tne Jonrney apt! Grmdaal Increase in Frloe
of a Bushel of Corn.
Illinois 'is the great corn state and
Peoria is the center of its rrjost prolific
belt. Peoria is a great grain market
and especially for corn. ' Vast quanti
ties of the polden grain are shipped
ifi-to that city for general distribution
and loaded into its mammoth eleva
tors by the hundreds of - thousands of
bushels. A great deal of corn is shipped
from Peoria, but a vast quantity is
used there. There is more corn used
in Peoria than in any three cities in
the union, even though these, cities be
New York, Philadelphia and Chicago.
The reason is obvious, says the Peoria
Herald.. Peoria is not only the center
of the great distilling interests, but
there are located two of the greatest
suerar houses in the country. Down
the . capacious maws of tne great ais-
tilleries are ' poured every day 20,000
bushels of corn. The sugar houses
use from 5,000 to 10,000 , bushels more
each dav in the year. To supply tne
constant demand the product of 1,000
acres of rich corn la nds is daily shipped
into Peoria for home consumption,
Aside from these there are fully 5,000
bushels used daily for other purposes.
So that it is safe to estimate that fully
9,000,000 bushels of corn are used in
that city annually for manufacturing
and other purposes.. The greater part
of this is manufactured into spirits.
It is wonderful - to consider the
changes made by a bushel of corn in
its transition from the owner's crib to
the glass of the consumer.1 These'
changes are various and far-reaching.
They are other, than financial. But
consider simply the mere element of
value. Corn was sold the other day in
Peoria for 85 cents per bushel. It came
all the way from Nebraska, perhaps,
where it brought but 25 cents. In
transit two dealers received a commis
sion of 1 cent each. The railroad com
pany received 8 cents for its freight
and other charges. The distiller paid
35. cents. He took and converted it
into four and a half gallons of finished
spirits and fed one of his steers on the
refuse. The distiller sold the spirits to
a local dealer for $5.12, of which Uncle
Sam received $4.05 as a tax on the spir
its, leaving a balance to the distiller of
72 cents after he bad paid 35 cents for
his corn. The spirits, after being well
watered and compounded, are sold at a
profit by the compounder and rectifier
to the dealer, who sells out at 15 cents
a drink. The four and one-half gal
lons have swelled to nine, and before
it gets through it swells many a nead
and also the revenue of the city where
its lines may be cast. So that, in its
travels from the Nebraska crib ,to the
Chicago saloon, that bushel of corn
has increased in value from 25 cents to
many dollars, ( and with its constant
running mates has furnished employ
ment to at least to fifty men or more
,and has contributed to both the nation
al and -municipal 'revenues. Such
magic there is in the juice of the golden
corn. v Of the "juice of that one bushel
of corn, at least 100 persons, have im
bibed, from the pious' old lady who
took it for "la grippe" to the jolly" old
toper wno tooic ic lor "the tigno.'
To resume, that bushel of corn was
thus, scattered on the highways of busi
ness and pleasure: farmer, so cents;
railroads, 88 cents; commission men, 2
cents; 'distillers, 72 cents, 72 cents;
feeder,' 10 cents; -Uncle Sam, 84.05;
compounder and rectifier, 25 cents; re
tail dealer, $10; city, $3: The con
sumer got whatever was left in the'
spirits, each according to his strength
or weakness. '
v - Monkey Versus Uuililog;.
The fight was in a public place and
in a. pit that was surrounded by an
iron grating. There was a big crowd
out to see the fight. Of course, every
bodv thoucrht the doe would chew up
the monkey. After a few minutes 1
hofvever,- the audience was surprised
at the sagacity displayed by the mon
key- The bulldog would make a rush
at the monkey, and the latter would
jump aside and allow the build og to
hit his head against the iron grat ings.
This was kept up for twenty minutes
or more, and then the ' dog began to
get tired. ' The monkey began to fight.
He would let the dog make a rush and
then jump on the dog's back and strike
him several times with the baton. This
was kept up for an h our or more, and
finallv the doer fell on the floor com
pletely exhausted, and the monkey
actually pounded him to death. The
monkey would strike, the 'dog several
blows and ' then place his ear to the
canine to see if he still breathed.
A Lawyer's Self-Possession.
It is told of Henry W. Paine, the Bos
ton lawyer, who recently died in that
city and who more than once refused a
seat on the Massachusetts supreme
court bench, that while he was arguing
a case one day before Chief. Justice
Gray the latter interrupted the course
of the argument with the impatient re
mark: "Mr. Paine, you know that is
not law." The nature and - manner of
the interruption were of a .kind to
throw even the most self-possessed ad-.
vocate off his balance. Mr. Paine,
however, without any outward mani
festation of annoyance or embarrass
ment, replied with simple dignity: "It
was law until your honor spoke," and
proceeded with his-argument.
Ten days loss of time on account of
sickness and a doctor bill to pay, is any
thing but pleasant for a man of a family
to contemplate, whether he is .a laborer,
mechanic, merchant or publisher. J as.
O. Jones, publisher of the Leader,
Mexia, Texas, -was sick in bed for ten
days with the grip daring its prevalence
a year or two ago. Later in the season
he had a second attack. He says : "In
the latter case I need Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy with considersible sac
cess, I think, only being in bed a little
over two days. The second attack I am
satisfied would have been equally as bad
as the first bat for the use of the remedy."
It should be borne in mind that the grip
is much the same as a very eevere cold
and requires precisely the. same treat
ment. When you wish to cure a cold
quickly and effectually give this remedy
a trial. 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale

' The Bronx Valley, for many miles of

The constitution of the JTnitcd States
provides that no state s'.uill coin
rnoney: but it seems that individuals
mirht do so, up till about the time of
the late civil war. Of course it has al
ways been agrainst the law to counter
feit or imitate the coinage of the United
States? and so, necessarily, a coin is
sued by a private mint would have to
be'so distinctive in.shape or markings
as to show that it was not intended to.
pass as federal money. For this reason,
says the Washington Star, the fifty
dollar sold coins or tokens issued by
several private, mints in California
during the flush times of the fifties
were octagonal in shape.
Gold coins were also issued by the
Mormons of Utah at about the' same
time, and the same thing had been
done by parties in Georgia and North
Probably the latest of these private
mints was the one established in Den
ver in the early sixties. It is said that
the coinage of this establishment be
ing brought to the attention of Secre
tary Chase, that eminent financier was
much astonished to find a respectable
firm of bankers engaged in making
and uttering money;' and was still
further surprised when the attorney
general of- the United States declared
they had the right to do so.

There are people who have a dis

hilarity without shuddering. The.
screech owl is supposed by the negroes
ou southern plantations to be in di
rect communication with all s the
"ghosts" and "giants" of the .'forests.
"He plays a great .part in the more
weird folklore story of the darkys. A
funny superstition in - regard to the
screech ,6wl is that if you will take
your shoe or slipper off your left foot
the first time you hear an owl laugh
and turn the shoe sole upward on the
floor and place your "stocking foot"
on the bottom of the shoe's sole the
owl .will stop laughing and fly for ten
miles without rest. .'---
