AUGUST 2!5. 1872.
The Hoodlum if a male of hu
man specie?, ot the genus homo.
He dresses in broadcloth, -wears
polished boots, carries a cane. He
is too lazy to work ; he is to proud
to beg ; he is too cowardly to steal.
He lives off the hard earnings of
the sin and shame of some poor
girl whom he abuses and neglects;
he stands upon the street corners
with hi? Hoodlum comrades of an
afternoon ; stares in brazen vulgar
ity at honest women, nu insults
with rude gesture and indecent ex
pression the soiled doves as they
il utter by. He has respectable rela
tives from whom he borrows when
the wolfe chases him too closely,and
during election times he sells his
influence for coin and aids to con
trol political results. He travels
on shape and talent ; he bullies the
weak, and he fawns upon the
strong ; his ambition is to get some
sirftcure berth in politics; he is
night-watchman, or has a special
policeman's beat duties which he
never performs, except to collect
the money. He liv es at free lunch
es; he amuses himself by rowdy
actions; attends excursions. J I is
. strong effort is to keep out of the
clutches of the law. lie is the
friend and counselor of thieves,
swindlers and confidence men, and
finally adopts the felons profession
then he ceases to be a hoodlum.
He becomes a drunkard, and is
then called bummer. Ho gets
shabby, and finds no frail women
to support him; he is then vaga
bond and loafed During the time
of his earlier success lie hangs
around theatres; he is a clacquer
and dead head. He brings up
cither in the home of the inebriate,
the county hospital, or the state
prison. lie is a disgrace to his
G family and a nuisance to the com
munity. Something' about Yourself.
Supposing your age to be fifteen
years or thereabouts, I can figure
you up to a dot. You have 100
bones and five hundred muscles;
your blood weighs twenty five
pounds; your heart is live inches
in length and three inches in diam
eter : it beats seventy times per
minute, 4,200 times per hour, 100,
800 times per day, and 3G.7,200
per year. At each beat a little
over two ounces of blood is thrown
out of it; and each day it receives
and discharges about seven tons of
that wonderful fluid. Your lungs
will contain a gallon of air, and
you inhale 21,000 gallons per day.
The aggregate surface of your
lungs, supposing them to be spread
out, 20,000 square inches. The
weight of your brain is three
pounds, when you are a man it will
weigh about eight ounces more
Your nerves exceed 10,00 3,000 in
Your skin is composed of three
layers and varies from one-fourth
to one-eighth of nn inch
in thickness. The area of your
skin is about 1,700 square
inches, and you are subject to an
atmospheric pressure of fifteen
pounds to the square inch. Each
square inch of your skin contains
3,500 sweating tubes, or perspira
tory pores, each of which nr.iy be
likened to a little drain-tile one
fourth of Inch long, making an ag
gregate length in the entire surface
of your body, of 20 1,1 GG feet, or
a tile ditch for draining the body
almost forty miles long.
Tun True Story' of the l!n,i,
Prr. Under the above caption
the Cincinnati correspondent of the
St. Haul Dispatch gives the sub
joined statement, which we may
consider ourselves as called upon
to copy, from a due regard to the
"truth of history:"
"Everybody is familiar with the
story of the bull pup sent to Presi
dent Grant, which he refused to
receive because the express charges
were not paid. The sequel
of the story is I believe,
new, and at all events, I will give
it at a venture, as related here by
'a man who knows.' Soon afteV
Grant had refused the pup he learn
ed that it was a valuable animal,
and greatly regretted he had not
paid the charges (M,.0). lie
accordingly sent one of the Dents
down to the express office the next
day to secure the pup. Judge of
his horror when he learned that a
colored man had paid the charges
and taken the pup home. Dent
M'as directed to hunt up the 'color
ed man and brother and see what ho
would take for the imp. He final-
y succeeded in finding him, and
the price was set at D.. After a
good deal of haggling, the price
was reduced to $40, and this Grant
paid. The pup is now said to be
worth $200 but Grant has never
forgiven himself for his rashness
whereby he squandered thirty five
' dollars and a half. This is an o'er
true tale, and shows the caliber of
our model President."
William P. Preston has publish
ed a letter in which he gives his
reasons for supporting Greeley,
lie says that if Greeley is elected
we shall not have to mourn a coun
try disgraced by the tyranny of
nondescript governments, igno
rant, servile rulers, thieving "carpet-baggers,
brutal military ty
rants, midnight arrests, suspension
ot habeaus corpus, trials far from
the scene of alleged crime, punish
ment in distant penitentiaries.

Too Many lilies.
Chicago seems to be a sort of fly
paradise, according to one of our
exchanges, and the "oldest inhabi
tant" vouches for the truth of the
story that this year beats the whole
record m the fly nuisance at the
restaurants and about the city.
A good story is told how Mr. Bax
ter cleared his establishment of his
winged visitors, and here it is :
Since the fire, Chicago can boast
of many good, bad and indifferent
restaurants. Wherever there is
met a saloon, or a clothing store,
or a gambling room, or a jewelry
shop, or a theater, there is located
a restaurant, or a lunch room. Xo
sooner was a table set in one of
these places than the flies were on
it. Wlien hungry mortals under
took to dine, there ensued a fight
for the spring chicken, or the broil
ed salmon, or the raspberry rolls.
If the man was lucky enough to
get it he enjoyed not only the
meal but the consolation of know
ing he had finished scores of the
Pilly Baxter had long been
troubled at his restaurant on West
Madison street with the flies. He
had tried every way possible to rid
the house of them, but all in vain.
They laughed at poisoned paper,
and as for those ingeniously con
trived wire traps, they stood on
the castors and on the cigar cases,
and actually turned up their little
noses. It was becoming more and
more annoying, and even Billy's
good nature was fast disappearing.
On Wednesday afternoon a green
looking sort of a chap stepped
into the restaurant and informed
Baxter that he could rid his house
of flies, and that he would do so
for the sum of 62. Billy's big
belly shook with delight, and he
closed the bargain on the spot, only
stipulating the money would not
be paid until the absence of the
flies could be noted.
The green looking chap took from
a dilapidated carpet sack a hemis
pherical case nearly a foot in length
and three or four inches in diame
ter. He laid his torpedo-like ar
rangement on the floor in the mid
dle of the room, sprinkled a layer
of powder for nearly two yards,
then applied a match. Almost in
stantly there was an explosion.
The "business had busted" with a
terrific roar. So had the windows,
and the crockery, and the flooring,
and George Cole's new white hat.
There wasn't a whole pane of glass,
or a teacub, or a water pitcher, or
a fly to be found in the room.
And worse still, the queer-looking
chap had departed without leaving
his card. Whether he is the pro
prietor of a rival hashery, or was
Beelzebub in disguise, no one can
tell. It is only certain that who
ever asks Baxter would he like to
be rid of his flies will have to look
out ibr a broken head.
Missouri's favorite son, Speaker
H. 1. C. Wilson, says one of the
evil effects of Grant's defeat will
be his return to St. Louis. But
then he is no worse as a citizen
than as a President.
he lialtimorc Platform.
Following is the platform adopted by
ihe Democratic Convention at Baltimore
on the 0;h of July. 1872:
1. We recognize the equality of men be
fore the law, and hoi 1 that it is the duty of
the government, in its dealings with the
people, to mete out equal and exact justice
t' ail, of whatever nativity, race, color or
pe: suasion, religious or political.
2. W'c pledge ourselves to maintain the
law, the union of these slates, emancipation
and enfranchisement., and to oppo.-e any re
opening of the questions settled by the
Thirteenth Fourteenth and Fifteenth amend
ments to the constitution.
ii. We demand the immediate and abso
lute removal of all disabilities imposed on
account, of the rebellion, which was finally
subdued seven years ago, believing that
universal amnesty will result in complete
pacification in all sections of the country.
4-. Local self-government with impartial
suffrage will guard the rights of all citizens
more securely than any centi al zrd power.
The public welfare demands the supremacy
of the civil over the military authority, and
freedom of person under the protection of
the fi.'i.bfi.i cor)'. We demand for the in
dividual the largest iibeity consistent with
public order, for the state self-government,
an I for tiie nation to return to the methods
of peace and the constitutional limitations
The civil service of the government
has become a mere instrument of part's in
tyranny and personal ambition and an object
of selfish greed. It is a scandal and re
proach upon free institutions, and breeds a
demoralization dangerous to the perpetuity
of a republican government.
We therefore regard a thorough rcfot m
of the civil service as one of the most press
ing necessities of the hour; that honesty,
capacity and fidelity const. tute the only valid
claims to public employment; that the'ollices
of government cease to be a matter of ar
b:t!' .ry favoritism and patronage, and that
public station will become again the post of
honor. To this end it is imperatively re
nuired that no president shall be a candidate
t a- re-election.
7. We demand a system of federal taxa
tion which shall not unnecessarily interfere
with the industry of the people, and which
shall provide the means necessary to pay the
pt-ii.-ca or i ne government, economical! v
e interest on the public debt, and a moder-
aminal reduction of the principal thereof;
rceoffnizimr that there are in nnr rmH.f
Lmiest but itt-ee meihible differences of opin
ion with regard t the respective systems of
protection and tree trade, we remit the dis
cussion of the subject to the people in their
congressional districts, and the decision of
congress thereon, wholly free of executive
interference or dictation."
. The public credit mu-t be sacredly
maintained, and we denounce repudiation ill
t v c ry fo r m a n d guise.
!. A speedy return to specie payment is
demanded, alike by the highest considera
tions of commercial morality and honest
in We remember with gratitude the
heroism and sacrifices ot the' soldiers and
sailors of the republic, and no act of ours
shall ever detract from our justly earned
fame or the full rewards of their patriot
ism. U. We are opposed to all further grants
of lands to railroads or other corporations.
The public domain should be held sacred to
12. We l.oid that it is the duty of the
government, in its intercourse with foreign
nations, to cultivate the friendships of peace
bv treating with all on fair and equal terms;
regardinsr it alike dishonorable either to de
mand what is not right, or to submit to
what is wrong.
13. For the promotion an! success of the
several principles and support of the candi
dates nominated by this convention, we in
vite and cordially welcome the co-operation
of all patriotic "citizens, without regard to
p rev km s political atiiiiauoti. '

IXIUBITASXS OF THE
rr-'IIE CAUSE OF A GREAT MANY DIS
JL eases, that have been pronounced incur
able by the most eminent physicians, for the
very reason that they overlooked the cause,
and as Dr. Van Den Bergh has made the
Entozoa a life long Study, he would inform
the sick generally that by close observation
and great experiments, has come to the con
clusion that there are more acute and thron
ic diseases caused by Worms, Hydatids, An
imalcuhe, or other species of Entuzoa. The
public generally, or the profession at large,
are not aware of the number of Patients
who are treated by eminent Physicians, lor
this, that, or such a complaint, without any
relief. If the disease had been understood,
a few doses of Dr. Vs. Sovereign. Worm
Jicmely would have immediately cured the
complaint and saved a great many lives.
INHABITANTS OF THE HU
What think you reader, of your body be
ing a planet, inhabited by living races, as
we inhabit the earth? Whatever may be
your thoughts on the subject, it is even so.
Your body may lie but a home for parasites
that crawl over the surface, burrow beneath
the skin, nestle in its entrails, and riot and
propagate their kind in every corner ot its
Trie following is from the San FrincLco
r,ull,Ut, of January tUh, 1S72. (A recent
Car: Yartins recently died In Cleveland,
Ohio, from eating meat infected with the
Oca of Tunam Solium. At the Coroner's
Inquest, on Tuesday, (January 2d.) it was
shown thut three weeks before Christmas,
Martins purchased a carcass f Pork. Some
of the meet was eaten the same day, and
some was made into sausage. About ten
days later, some of the sausage was eaten,
and in a short time the whol'j family were
taken siek. Martins died on Sunday, Decern
ber 31st, 171. Mrs. Martins and her two
children are now very sick, and the fomer is
not likeh to recover. The verdict was in
accordance with the facts. For further par
ticulars, see Cleveland, Ohio, papers at' above
date. A Coroner's Inquest brought this
fact to light.
Now I would ask how many more Mich
deaths a'i imprest would bring to light ?
Ponder well, reader, upon this, and think of
the thousands that die every jcar and no
cr.u.-e can be assigned lor their death. Now
the Question that would naturally enter the
mim! of the reader, is what shall 1 d
advice of the Dr. would be go to some one
that is competent of treating stic-h com
plaints. And who is im-re competent than
the one that has made Worms a speciality.
Tkmas. Yesterday, Dr. J. W. Van Den
Bel gh exhibited to us a number ot parasites
which had been removed from persons af
Uieted; there were several d ilerent species,
oneof which appears to be entirely unknown
to the medical protes-ion. This new taenia
is shaped something like an orange seed,
but perfectly flat, or lather like a cucumber
seed, with a tail about a quarter of an inch
in ki gth. Another was a tape worm 7
feet in length, consisting of !,6oo joints.
Among medical men there exists no little
dill'creiice of opinion relative to the m igin
of these entozoa. On class of writers Re
lieve that these parasites, at least many of
them, originate in the endowment of animal
molecules with vitality from the parent body,
favored by certain states of the vital forces
of that body; the states originating their
organization and promoting their giowtli
and propagation. That ail descriptions of
entozoa are met with far more frequently
where animal food is used in greatest- abund
ance, is an indisputable fact, especially
where the food is the tiesii of the "unclean
beasts." which the Jews and Mohammedans
are forbidden to partake of. But our inten
tion is not to wi ite a thesis upon this subject:

J. W. Van Den Bergh has found a medicine
a simple vegetable which gtows in r.bund
mice in California, which is a dead shot to
a entozoa, of whatever de-cription, gener
ally accomplishing its object in from an hour
and a half to six hours. Moniihz Call.
Had we the space here, hundreds of testi
monials could be produced, testifying to the
truihof the asseri ion that have here been
made, but it would be useless and would
only occupy the reader's time.
