Getting At Tno Root Or Tho Evil.
In a letter ittst printed, Hon. (Jratz Drown,
of Missouri, takes strong grounds in favor of
proliittltnry Hqitor Ia a. Ho says:
" It is all very well tlmt tho reason bo ap
pealed to, tlio sympathy, tho love, the interest
of the individual, tho family, tho country, to
induce such alistincnco mid invito such pledges;
but whin all this it gained, what nvails if it
cannot be made permanent! The way, how
ever, to malio sure of all tho ground which is
gained in any great moral i evolution, is to des
troy the agencies of iinmoiality, i taction nnd
reduction as you go along, Leave no armed
foohchind. In this matter of tcmpoiauco 10
form it is essential. Close up tho fcaloons that
invito to tho social glass. Make it unlaw fill to
publicly vend intoxicating liijuor, under any
pretense. Send the dram-shop keepers at once
to Linking a livingin other callings that aro not
hurtful to tho public. Coricct public fcenti
mi nt as you go along by striking examples of
tho reprobation It is intcnled hereafter to visit
upon such callings. Do these things, and do
them thoroughly, and of tho 1,000 men who
hao donned tho red ribbon, or tho blue, you
Mill liml at tho end of tho year 090 will join
again in your procession, and hold tho fort.
Dtit to do this requires tho amending of tho
laws, tho revision of the statutes, tho correct
ing of local charters, tho Invocation, in short,
of tho power of tho State, and that is politcs.
It is idle to think about it in any other light.
And it is not only polities, but tho most domi
nant politics of tliis ago or country. Thcro aru
moro men to-day, throughout tho wholo West,
who aro deeply, aye, earnestly, enlisted in
having tho law niado clear and cmphatlo in
prohibition of this grc.it crlmo the liquor
trallio than in any ami all tho othor questions
dignified with tliu namu of politics which now
thin out the newspapers or dwadlo Into talk on
tho street corners. That the temperance cause
can never lo successfully engineered until it
becomes a political cause In tho sciibo suggest
ed must bo apparent to all who consider what
is wanted for its final triumph, nnd how nlouu
that want can bo supplied. Exportation proves
that liquor selling don't stoji itself. Tho his
tory of each day in tho year blazon ita crimi
nal character In tho police courts. Tho de
pressing reaction which follow reform move
ments where tho tr.illiu lomaliu unchecked tell
thu necessity of suppression. Hut the legisla
tion needed to elleet its prohibition can only
come of men sent to tho halls of legislation
commissioned to do that work llrst ami before
all else, To select such men and elect them is
politic, How such politioi shall bo best con
ducted, through what Instrumentality of asso
ciation of parties, whether by independent
movement or by dominating old organization
aro other and very different questions which
will rcqiiiro grave considerations."
Romantlo Elouomant or a Nun.

This only irritated tho young nun, nnd caused
her to hocomo disgusted w ith her life. "I can

Cuti: ok PminiKiUA. The celebrated
Dr. 1'iehl, during thu ravages of diphtheria
iu Knglaud, a few years since, used tho fol
lowing remedy: A tuaspoonful of tlour of
brimstone in a wineglass of water, stirred
with the linger rather than a spoon, as sul
phur does not readily amalgamate with wa
ter. When well mixed usu as a gargle ami
swallow. Iu extreme cases, where the fun-
f;us was too nearly oloscd to allow gargling,
io blew the sulphur through a quill into the
throat, after the fungus had shrunk, then
t;nrglc. If the patient, cannot gargle, spriii
clu thu tlour of brimstone on a live coal and
let him smell the fumes. Dniiistono kills
every species of fungus in man, beast or bird
and plant. Dr. Field never lost a patient
by diphtheria during all his immense practice.
There cannot ho any good farming where
weeds aro allowed to run riot among the
growing crops, and any farmer who permits
quantities ot foul herbage to grow around

worthy of admiration or to bo iniliieuced in
any way. Yet iu many neighborhoods there

Mr. Tildcu iimls no rest for the solo of his
foot, but In this circumstance alone docs ho
reacmhle Noah's dove. While tho great
guns of tho New York Tribuno aro knocking
what was left of his reputation about his
miserable cars, tho old income suit lax comes
up witli fuither damaging revelations. It
seeiiM now that positivu proof has been ad
duced of the payment to him of a fee of 20.-
000, which fee ho previoiifl swears ho had
never received; and at the s"imo time it is in
timated that ho is believed to havo co-operated
with homebody elu to appropriate
( "convey" tho wise it call) 100,000 in bonds
and stoeUn, which property wn temporarily
intiusted to Tilduiiund Company. Wo aro
tiiehiied to hopo that this lattor charge will
prove to be unwarranted, for we cannot but
thud: that Mr. Tildcu has had quite as much
gruel as his enfeebled constitution will cany.
At all events it would bo merciful to givo
him breathing time, though that is not tho
usual wav with the lmwci-that shaties our
ends rough, hew them as we will. As thu
poet Longfellow has appropriately observed,

disposed to appeal to his friends to throw up
thu sponge in his behalf nnd rcmovo him
from tho licld, Ditt there may bo a trille of
Halm left iu Oilcad even for him. It is true
that the fraud movement has reboundedwith
disastrous elfcct. but tho bottom of tho cele

Ono of the dangers of homo life is this
habit of disrespect that which is bred by
familiarity. People who nre all beauty
and sunshine for a crowd of strangers, for
whom thoy have not tho slightest atl'cc
tiiui and nil ugliness and gloom for their
own, by whoso love they live The pleas
nut little prettiiics.s of dress nnd personal
adornment which mnrk thudesire to please
nro put on purely for the admiration of
those whoso admiration goes for nothing,
while the hotisu companions nro treated
only to thu ragged gowns mid threadbare
coat, tho tousled hair and stubby beard,
which, if marking the case and comfort,
or tho satis facon of home, mark also tho
uidiHereuce nutl disrespect that do ho
much damage to the sweetness and del
icacy of daily life. And what is true of
the dress is still truer of the manners
nnd tempers of home, iu both of which
we otten turn too, that want of respect
which seems to urn side by side with
allcction in the custom of familiarity. It
is a rcgrotitulo liilnt under any of its con
ditions, but never nioio so than when it
invades the homo ami endangers still
moro that which is already too much en
dangered by other things. Parents and
bringers-up do not pay enough attention
to this iu the young. They allow habits
of disrespect to bo formed rudo, rough,
insolent and impatient, mid salve over
the Bore with the stereotyped excuse,
"Thoy mean nothing by it," which, if thoy
look nt it aright, is worse than no excuse
at nil, for if they really do mean nothing
by it, and their disrespect is not what it
seems to be, the result of strong anger or
tincoutrolable temper, but is merely a
habit, then It ought to be conquered
without tho loss of time, being merely a
manner that hurts all parties alike.

Another illustration of the perils incident
to underground work iu the mines was uiven
at tliu Pliienu mine on Sundiy. Kvan Kvaus
was the unfort mate victim. It seems that he
was ascending the south shaft, tiding uu the
top of the bucket, with his left hand in tho
links of the eh tin tint connects tho cable
w ith the bucket. Iu proceeding upward tho
luuket caught somehow iu the track, and
F.vatis' huiul became entangled iu tho links
and held fast as by a vise. The engineer,
seeing the rope tighten, took the precaution
to stop the eiiiine, and is certainly entitled
to much pratso for lii carefulness, There w.u
another miner in the bucket with Kvans,
w ho, seeing the painful and helpless condi
tion of his companion, essayed tho hazardous
task of climbing up tho wot, slipp.-ry ladder
iu the darkness (for the lamps were all out)
a ditt nice of 300 feet. The Teat was accom
plished svfely.and on reaching the surface he
explained the distressing situation in which
he had left his partner in the bucket. As is
alwavs the case when an accident occurs, a
large crowd speedily gathered at the mouth
of the shaft. The eugineer lowered carefully,
so as to release thu su'Verer's baud from the
terrible grip of tho links, and ho was hoisted
to the top, I need scarcely say that Kvans
looked as pale a death from tho agony ho
had undergone. His hand and fingers were
mashesl to a jelly. Ho was removed with all
haste to San Francisco, in the hope that tho
surgeons ot that city would be aide a least
to save his hand, but not so. Tho doctor im

A correspondent writing from Oregon City
says: It is seldom that the pioneer city of
the state is brought before tho public, ns a
contributor to the ever increasing demand of
manufacturing, iu the simplicatiou of its va
rious occult arts, that I cannot refrain from
a feeling of prido and a seuso of justice to
our city from introducing to your numerous
readers a brief aconuntot Clark's attachment
for measuring cloth in thofuller,a patent for
which lie has recently been ncconled by tho
patent ollico at Washington. As its title
signifies, the patent is connected with tho
manufacturing uf woolen cloths. What has
Imjcii a question of great moment to thu
manufacturers of woolou goods for many
years, has been the discovery of
soma method that would indicate
what progress a piece of cloth was
making during thuopcrationof fulling. Un
der thu oltl system now iu general use, all
the lulling processes are comluctctl upon
guess work, which is, and has been attended
with much loss. At present there is but one
of those attachments iu use at the factory
w hicli I havo inspected. The patent is at
tached to ono of "Hunt's patent fullers."
The invention though ingeiiions is very
simple. Connected w ith the springs of thu
upper roller is an iron rod which is in turn
connected with a light wooden lover that
lifts and drops a gear-dial on to n worm
that is attached to the main guid
ing roller of the fuller. The extra
vibration created by the seam caused by
sewing both ends of the cloth together, both
puts tho indicator iu ami out of motion. The
arrangements arc so complete ami simple
that by merely moving a lever it will on the
revolution of the seam iu thu cloth nut thc
dial iu motion, thus showing the operator
w hat the cloth is doing, enabling him to ad
just the fuller accordingly. Messrs, Jacobs,
who have the managing interests of the
mills, have been so pleased that the evils
the invention has remedied, and tho good it
has accomplished, have ordered a dozeu at
tachments from au easteru firm with tho in
tention uf placing them on all their fullers.
The invention when introduced and iu gen
eral use, will and must create a revolution in
the finishing department of tho manufactur
ing of woolen cloths. The inventor, Mr.
Clarke, has already received a number of in
vitations from woolen factories on this coast
to introduce his patent.
