The first issue as a Democratic news

management continues it will stand by
the party organization, it will denounce
treachery when discovered, it will dis
courage bolts, and its efforts will not
be directed towaids the political pre
ferment of the editors rather than the
good of the party. In short, the paiv-r
will continue to bo an honest, reliable
family newspaper, and as it deals fairly
with all, it desires only the same treat
ment in return.
now is a good time to add your
name to the large list of Columbian
Governor Paulson's Message.
Tho Governor's message was pre-
senled to thu Legislature on Tuesday.
It is very lengthy, and deals with all
the leadiug questions of slato interest.
It suggests the repeal of the act autb

It gives a history of the Soldiers'

This is the last communication which
it will be ray privilego to transmit to

my views at considerable length.
Four years of Executivo service havo
convinced me how much is yet to bo
accomplished for tho reformation of
abuses which havo crown up ooustant
Jy aud imperceptibly in nearly all tho
department of the civil administration.
Tho duty of eradicating these abuses
is a tak of great magnitude, but will
assuredly load to fidelity, industry and
zeal. In tho effort to accomplish this
end there should be entire unity of
purpose, and mutual assistance by all
officers of the Government. I do not
leel that I would properly acquit ray

Tho annual levco nt tho Whito
House last Saturday passed off pleas
antly to both host and guests. Legis
lators and officials, judiciary and di
plomats, soldiers and sailors, veterans
and civilian?, old ago and youth, wealth
and poverty, Jamo and obscurity, aris
tocracy and democracy, came, as usual
to pay respect nnd express good wishes
to tho Chief Magistrate.
Without tho Mansion the scene was
bleak and slushy nnd cold, a'thouah the
weather predictions had dnno all in
their power to mako it bright. But
within everything was cheerful enough.
All tho Stato apartments wero thrown
open nnd wero ablazo with gas jets,
and blooming with (lowers. One thou
sand trees aud pots of plants had been
brought from the conservatory for dec
oration. As tho President was just recover
ing from another rheumatic attack
which had kept him prisoner for moro
than a week, it was thought ho would
not bo able to enduro tho wholo ordeal
of the thrco hours of handshaking, but
would bo compelled to retire from
fatiguu before the reception was over.
His condition was the cauc of much
solicitude on the part of Mrs. Cleve
land and tho Cabinet officer, who
wanted him to remain ,'eaU'd during
tho intervals between tho reception of
tho various bodies. He would not
yield to their wishep, however, but
stood up to his task bravely until tho
last, though ho was very tired.
After the officials had pissed through
tho public was received, and visitors
then came in, from actual count, at tho
rato of 300 to every ten minute. The
throng soon became dense inside tho
Mansion. Tbo Bluo Room, in which
tho receiving party stood, becatno suf
focatingly warm and tho prespiration
rolled from tho President's face in
streams. Tho corriders were choked
with people, nnd beforo tho police
could induce them to move into thu
EaBt Room, some ladies fainted.
This was the first time since 1881
when a president's wife has appeared
at a Mew Year's reception in the White
House, nnd the first in thirty years
since a Democratic President's wife
has presided there, 1857 being the last
year that President and Mrs. Pierce
were at the Executive Mansion. Con
sequently the pleasure expressed at
having so youug a lady as Mrs Ch ve
land there, is not a mutter of surprise.
One member of the Corps Diploma
tique tells a story about another enthu
siastic diplomat who was so delighted
with Mrs. Cleveland, that, after sha
king hands with her, he testified his
admiration by kissing the inside of bis
own hand which hail touched hers.
The elderly Senator from Vermont,
Mr. Morrill, who is, of course, a Re
publican, expressed his approval of
Mis. Cleveland in the f illowing char
acteristic way, he : "While there
is a difference of opinion as to those
holding some of the plaeek tho Presi
dent has tilled by appointment, the
vacancy he had chosen to fill by the
selection of a lady to provide at the
White House is acceptable to every
When this was repeated to tho Presi
dent be said cordially "I am glad they
did not try to th wan me io that." "You
did not ask iho advice and consent of
the Senate in that matter,'' suggested
a lady present. "No, indeed, I didn't,"
ejaculated Mr. Cleveland, as if very
thankful that the Constitution of ho
United States did not make it obliga
tory. Cougress will convene again to
morrow. Since it adjourned for the
holidays, General Logan's death has
made the Illinois Stmatorship a subject
of interesting speculation. It is re
garded as a matter of considerable
political importance, for the reason
that whoever receives the complimen
tary vote of tho Democratic Members
of the Illinois Legislature, will natur
ally become a conspicuous figure of
his party two years hence, in case tho
Democrats should then control the
It is too early to say what effect tbo
death of General Logan will have upon
his party, but the opinion is freely ex
pressed here that the Republican organ
ization of Illinois will bo seriously
broken by the loss of its trusted leader
so much so as to ronder tho capture of
the Btate by tho Democrats, at the next
election, moro than probable. By that

Tho meeting of the school directors
of tho county was hold in connection
with tho institute on Wednesday De
cember 221. The forenoon meeting
was called to order in Fifth street
building at 11 o'clock a. m., by County
Superintendent Grimes uud was organ
ized by tho selection of J. C. Browu of
Bloomsburg us President and W. T.
Creasy of Cattawinsa as Secretary. An
essay on the "Needed Improvements
in our Publio Schools," was read by A.
P. Young, in which he spoko about
the needs of a central high school in
each district nnd reducing the number
of schools. The essayist also advocat
ed having the public school building
look more like a home instead of stand
ing in some fence corner as many now
do. Ho said he believed in compul
sory education, with uniformity of text
books, skilled teachers aud technical
Tho subjects of "compulsory educa
tion" and "uniformity of text books"
wero discussed to some extent. A voto
was called for and resulted in favor of
compulsory education, uniformity of
text books throughout the country, but
in opposition to the law of free text
books for tho district.
Mr. Ro'enstock read an essay on tho
"Duties and Responsibilities of Direc
tors," in which he stated that school
boards should not only look after school
property but exercise great caro in
seleoling teachers. The discussion was
opened by Ezra Evs of Pine, who
slated that paionts should visit schools
more frequently following this thought
with many more good suggestions.

The First Sign
Of falllnR health, whether in the form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest tho use of
Aycr's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for Riving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting the digestion and assimilation ot
food, restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing the blood.
Failing Health.
Ton years ago my health began to fall
Night Sweats, Weakness, and N
newt. I tried various remedies
but became so weak that I could not go up
D.uiia nuuuill mopping U3 rest. MY
friends recommended mo to try Ayer
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and lain now
at healthy and strong as ever, Mrs.
K. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Aycr's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, fur Scrofula, and know, it it la
tnkeu faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe It to bo tho lst blood medicine
evercoinpouiuled. W. K. Fowler. M. D..

scribe what I Kitlfercd from Indigestion
and Headache up to the tlmo I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
the enre ot various physicians, and tried!
o great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtaiucd mora than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed It
duties moro perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored, Mary
lfarlcy, Sprlugileld, Moss.
I havo been greatly benefited by tho
prompt uso of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates tlio system, regu
lates tho action of the digestive and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes the
blond. It Is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.
