Newkirk) in the South Lyon Picket, and wül continue to publish a brightand readable newspaper. Pbrhaps when the oity 1 asked to pay hundreds of dollars damages, oaused by detective sidewalks, theu the alJermen will fully realize what Thb Dbmoobat has been talkiug abnut. This city will be fairly lighted with silty-three eleotric lights. In the outskirts more light will be needed This will, of oourse, inorease the expense. With oue or two polioemen less there would be an ofifaet. The Lansing Journal wül shortly issue a daily publioation in oonneotion with their weekly. The new firm is Rowley & Stitt, and we bespeak a live democratie paper f rom suoh snterpnsing men. Succesa, gentlemen. In the death ot John A. Logan, a prominent republioan predicts that the second place on the republioan presidential tioket, in 1888, will be offered ExGov. Alger. It will read " Blaine and Alger." Well, perhaps it will. The oarrier boys' address, issued by the Detroit Evening Journal, is very unique. It is in pamphlet form, the oover oí embossed paper, with a Journal in minerature and a calendar for 1887 on one side, and on the otber a quotation f rom Dickens. The address is handBomely illustrated througkout, showing how eagerly the jouraal is watohed for by the young aua the old. We hope the news boys were generously remembered, as they certainly deserve to be. General Maater Workman Powderlv has written a letter to the Secretary of a Good Templar lodge in Brooklyn, in whioh be says: "I am pleasod to know that my humble efforts in bebalf of the sacred oauae of tiniperance meet with your approval. I have never said anything upon the subjeot that I did not mean. To the use of liquor may be asoribed nine-tenths of the ills that befall our working people, and while our working people are always held up those most likely to be injured by the of rum, it is only because, through poverty, their faults are more easily disoovered than those on the other side, who drink fully as muoh and are as much the sla ves of drink as are the working people, the only difference being ia thequality of the drinks.

From the universal law of habit, little by little, day by day, act 1 y aot, thread by thread, ïmk by link, we mould tho character, we weave the woof, we forge the chains which bind our being, and, in forniiuff our habits, trom our character. The man who can learn, reasou, and xecute with equal facility possesses the elementa of aucce-s, even though his qualities be of but an inferior order; while one who has any of these f aculities abnormally developed at the expense of the others will alwaye be crippled by the absence of the essential features of a anocessful life. It ia now claimed that oelery is a sure cure tor rheumatism; indeed, it is asserted the disease ia impossible if the vegetable be cooked and Í reely eaieu. The faot that it is always put on the table raw, prevente lts therapeutic power from being known. The celery should be cut into bits, boiled until soft, and the water drank by the patiënt.

Republicana are very much worried becauee McCullough, Arthur b secretar}of the treasury, endorses Becretary Manuiug's tarifl views.

It íb to be hoped that the átate of Illinois will not do itself the discredit of electing cowardly Dick Oglesby lo suooeed the brave Logan in the United States Beuate.
