About the flrst news that reaches us under the new regime, is that Mr. Heil has been commissioned postmaster in Dakota. Suggestlvc as to the party's future. If Mr. Ci.eï elad resolves to ignore civil service reform and uiako a clean sweep in the offices, he will have to appoint something like 300 a day or elíe take a second term. A thing he Is bound in word of honor not to do. One tiiino is very encouraginj; to republicans. Wherever an issue has been mude on local officers in the municipal elections thls spring, the republicans have been victorlous in nearly every instancc. The party is getting itself together in good shape. The elkmentsoí discord havealready entered the ranks of the democrucy. President Cleveland, having conservative and sensible views upon the silvcr question, civil service reform, etc, has mortally oflended the cranks already. It looks as if the Kllkennv cat war would be outranked soon. Conorkss will not c;ase coining and piling up In the national treasury silver dollars worth 82 cents. It is supreme to keep this up.

Tou can usually teil wlicre to tind the Courier, too. It doesn't pat people on the back and cali them nice fcllows wlien it ineaus the reverse.

Because we do not believe the action of the prohibiiionist's in forming a new party, wïse, and say so, the Herald would lead its readers to believe that spite is at the bottom of it. As well attribute the utteranjes of the Herald agaiust aetious it believes wrong and consequcntly denounces as 8uch, is spite work. The Herald should be broader tbao that.

I wash theiu thoroujjhly inside with powdered charcoal, Uien put in fresh and fill with water, and theu let tbem stand ¦ few hours. A bagful of charcoal, thrown into a cistern, removes the unplcasant smell."
