Wrston is a beautiful little town, of
about twelve hundred Inhabitants, laying
on the west fork of'the Monogahela riv
er, about 23 miles south east of Clarks
tog.West Virginia. They have located
temk State Lunatic Asylum. It is not
quite finished, but when completed it
will be one of the finest structures of the
tisd in nut country, or- in the world, so
is said by extensive travelers. I was
conducted all through the building by
the courteous, and very gentlemanly Su
perintendent. Dr. Tbns. Camden, than
whom I question much, whether a more
suitable or competent person could be
found to manage so important an institu
tion ; and he is fortunate in having a
Wrfe, also, as matron, Sirs. Jackson, and as
sistant matron Mrs. Moore, and assistant
physician Dr. Kuntz, who are eminent
ly qualified for all the duties connected
with such an institution. There is such
perfect neatness and cleanliness, with com
complete order, that yon would almost
imagine yourself in the private house of
swell regulated family rather than among
■tsane persons. There are about 280 un
i rtnnate persons now in the institution, a

Nominating Systems.—And] tow
the Republicans of Beaver county have
become dissatisfied with the Crawford
county system of making nominations.
They are about submitting a proposition
requiring a majority of all the votes cast
to Dominate, and in case no candidate
receives such majority, then the nomina
tion be made by the County Convention.
The Crawford' system looks fair, bat
wherever it has been tried it has occasion
ed dissatisfaction, and is everywhere be
ing abandoned. The great defect is that
members of the opposite party, or those
who have no intention of supporting the
nominations, step in @ aod control them.
Tb? Delaware county practice, gradually
perfected by citizens of the several dis
tricts anxious for fair play, is the very
best way we know of, and other counties
can imitate it with good results.
Here the Republicans bold delegate
elections on the day previous to the nom
inating convention. Regular officers are
chosen, a poll kept open at the regular
place in each district between the hours
of one and eight in the afternoon, and
votes by ballot received only from those
who are members of the party, or who
intend to support the ticket. The tickets
used are printed or blank, so that the
voters can select and write in any candi
date. At the close of the election a full
count is made, and the full result set out
by the election officers in their duplicate
certificates of election given to the dele
gates. These take the‘n? certificates to the
convention, return one to the proper
officers of that body, and keep the other
as a guide for action during the nominat
ing ballots. If A has the most votes for
Sheriff in a given district, the delegates
therefrom in honor adhere to him so
long as bis name is before the conven
tion . '
If he is drop ped, the candidate receiv
ing the next highest in said district is
next voted for so long as he is before the
convention, and so on to the end. . Most
of our districts have gradually fallen into
this practice—which fs the fairest fur all
parties; and where honestly adhered to, it
better reflects the wishes of the majority
of the party in the?comity than any plan
yet devised. It leaves no. room for trad
ing on nominating: day, and as a role
permits a fair reflection of the sentiments
■i' : i
,iI ' ■
of each and every district. The system
as practiced here , has some minor defects
‘which will doubtless be corrected in time.
We have no proper regulations for drop*
ping candidates, and no fixed rule guard
ing against violations Of instructions.
These arenow left id the action of the
convention at the time, and haste or ex
citement may at times result in iojustie’S."
Candidates are now. dropped on motion,
and the:only remedy for a violation of
instructions Js an ; appeal to the con
vention. Heretofore, in a few' notable
instances, InstructionahaVe been violated,
but recently the delegations have checked *
any such tendency by prompt: Reminders
as to duty and bycopies of their returns.
Where mistakes are made, this opens a
door for theif C;immediate correction ; but
if a wrong vote were to be persisted ip: at
this late day, it would very likely leadlto ,
the expulsion of the man casting it. The
Delaware county plan as a whole, is, how
ever, better than any we know of, andj in
late years Las promoted fair play and
given the majority the right to'say who
shall be on ticket—just as it should. Del

Ah tbe purchase of a Sewing Machine Is of
may be an act for a life-time, care should be taken
in selecting one that time and use have proven to
be the best. Time tries all things. ‘"Use only
tarnishes the final test." Opinions of the Skill
ful may be of value, but time is needed to| con
firm them. While tbe Singer Sewing Machine
Company has given the public the finest fruits of
inventive genius, they 1 have guarded it from a
multitude of traps. Attachments have bees ad
ded for various purposes, but it has kept free
from all useless complications. Simplicity of
parts, and adaptation to the widest range' of work
has been the constant aim.
i Instead of boasting of a variety of useless
Stitches and movements, it claims to make; but
One Kind of Stitch, and that with the Fewest
Movements Possible. Hence the Machine may
run constantly for twenty years, or a life-time, and
work Just as welMs.tvhen new.

From the period when surgeons applied tbeir
salves to weapons instead of wounds to the pres
ent wide-awake age, the medical profession: has
often unwittingly taken side with Disease in its
conflicts with the human system. Even yet, in
spite of the teachings of centuries of experience,
sdme physicians believe in depleting their pa
tents, already seriously exhausted by sickness,
with powerful evacuants, emetics, saiivants,.
cautharidal plasters, or the. lancet. But, provi
dentially, public Intelligence is ahead of these
medical fossils, who belong, of right, to the era of
the Crusades! That powerful ally of nature in its
warfare with the causes of sickness, Hostetler’s
Stomach Bitters, has opened the eyes of the
masses to the paramount importance of increasing
the vital strength of the body when menaced by
disease. They understand that when the atmos
pheric conditions are adverse to health, it is wise
to reinforce the system with a wholesome tonic
and stimulant, and thus enable it to combat and
repel the depressing influence of an inclement
temperature. If the constitutional and animal
powers were always thus recruited in the pres
ence of danger, the mortality from consumption,
bronchitis, chronic rheumatism, <tc., would be
much less than It is now. The causes which pro
duce croups, colds, quinsey, diptheria and catarrh
seldom afiect a strong and active vital system ;
and of all vitalizing preparations, Uostetter’s
Bitters has proves the most efficient. It is not
claimed that this standard tonic is a specific for
lang and throat maladies, as it Is for dyspepsia,
liver complaint and intermltents, but it is un
hesitatingly asserted that it is the best known
safeguard against all the atmospheric elements of
