WEDNESDAY AUGUST it, 187S
Tho Question of Nomin ationu.
THE MILD POWER
We think the Democratic county
executive committee made a serious
mistake in postponing action, regard-
ing making nominations, until Octo-
cr. The people, as well as aspirants,
should know whether a regular tick-
et is to be put injhe field or not. It
was once decided that there would
be 110 nominations, which was an in-
vitation for all who wished to an-
nounce themselves as candidates in a
free race to do so. Many, no doubt,
are now candidates who would have
kept out of the race, had they sup-
posed nominations would be made.
The way the matter now stands the
question of nominations must remain
an uncertainty six or seven weeks,
and it is not reasonable to suppose
that those who make a vigorous can-
vass between now and October 7th,
will be willing to withdraw in fuyor
of the nominees of a convention.
We are satisfied a nomination that
late in the campaign will produce
general dissatisfaction, and very
probably, seriously weaken the regu-
lar ticket. When the convention
was called in July, we knew that the
Democrats of Denison generally fa-
vored nominations, but the propo*
sition was defeated by a large ma-
jority ; now a large number of the
best men of the party here are op-
posed to nominations, and especially
so la te as October.

Brown's customers will be pleased to
hear that he has just received a large
fresh stock of the celebrated Vanguard
cigars; also, the Don Martinoes, and the
Leading Half Dime cigars. The Van-
guard and Leading Half Dime cigars are
the best cigars sold in Denison for five
cents. The Don Martinoes are a pure Ha-
vana cigar of the best make and retails
for fifteen cents. They are sold only at
Brown's Bazaar, and Brown & Webb's
book store. Do not tail to try them.

Shipment of Cattle to England.
The shipment of live cattle to
England has to a great degree su-
perceded transporting the dead
meat. The New York Times, in an
article on the subject, says: "When,
however, first-class London steam-
ers from this port arc compelled to
encroach upon the space usually al-
lotted to passengers, as happened a
few days ago in the case of the
•France,' which took out a consign-
ment of nearly five hundred head of
Texas steers, it is certain the time is
coming when the exigencies of the
traffic will command the entire ca-
pacity of even the largest steamers.
All the available space in this vessel
had to be utilized for freight, and
even the grand saloon for passengers
had to be re-constructed into stalls
for oxen. On the same day, the
steamer 'Ithalia' carried over to Scot-
land two hundred and ten head ot cat-
the additional, making a shipment
of about seven hundred head from
this port in a single day, the freight
costing, all told, from twenty-five to
thirty dollars per head. The great-
est number of cattle ever carried
across the ocean in any vessel—five
hundred and fifty head—were ship-
ped from Boston, July 4, in Messrs.
Warren & Co.'s steamer 'Masscha-
setts,' and arrived in Liverpool after
a passage of eleven days. That the
precautions taken for the safety of
the animals were perfect, may be in-
ferred from the fact that no aceident
occurred during the passage, and
that every one which went on board
in Boston, was landed in Liverpool
in the finest possible condition.
• Mr. T. f. Campbell, the proprietor of
this old and popular resort, keeps his bat
supplied with the best wines, liquors and
cigars to be had in the city. Remember
the place—next door to Mason's cigar
Senora Zamacona, Mexican Min-
ister having been asked whether he
anticipated war with the United
States, replied: "By no means.
President Diaz is very anxious to
preserve friendly relations with the
United States and is doing every-
thing in his power to put down law-
lessness on the border; but the
Mexican government is like this
country, it cannot at all times keep
perfect order in outlaying and
sparsely inhabited States."
The St. Louis Republican ascribes
the exemption of that city, of recent
years from plagues, to its perfect
system of sewerage. The Republi-
can says "this is the secret of the
disappearance of cholera ai an epi-
demic, and of the decreasing fatality
of cholera infantum. It will ac-
count also for the perfect security
against the dreadful yellow fever
plague, which is universally felt.
St. Louis is too clean to breed these
epidemics which feed on filth.
The Courier says Rev. Doctor
Reed gave the Sherman newspaper
editors a whack over the head for
shortcomings, in his sermon Sunday
The Rev. Doctor probably took pat-
tern from the Denison clergy, some
of whom delight, apparently, in crit-
icising the local press. Happily the
pi ess can stand it.
All accounts dne the firms of M.
H. Brown and Brown & Webb, that
have been due sixty days, will be
put in the hands of an attorney for
collection, or such other measures
taken that will insure their payment
if not settled for at once. Parties
owing these firms will save expense
or trouble to call and settle immedi-
ately. M. tt. Brown.

Liver is King.
The Liver is the imperial organ of the
whole human system, as it controls the
life health and happiness of man. When
it is disturbed in its proper action, all
kinds of ailments are the natural result.
The digestion of food, the movements of
the heart and blood, the action of the
brain and nervous system, are all imme-
diately connected with the workings of
the liver. It has been successfully proved
that Green's August Flower is unequaled
in curing all persons afflicted with dys-
pepsia or liver complaint, and nil the
numerous symptoms which result from
an unhealthy condition of the liver and
stomach. Sample bottles to try 10 cents.
Positively sold in all towns on* the West-
ern Continent. Three doses will prove
that, it is just what you want.
Beyond tho Reach of Human Skill
Is the power to restore the hair to bald
heads when the bulbs at the roots are
destroyed by age or disease; but there are
doubtless many persons bcoming bald,
whose hair by careful attention might be
restored to its original luxuriance and
beauty. Parker's Hair Balsam is an ele-
gant preparation, designed to meet the
public want for a harmless hair dressing
and restorative. It acts like magic, com-
mencing at the very roots,' removes dan-
druff $nd all humors from the scalp,, and
never fails to restore gray or faded hair
to its original color, and the soft, rich
glossy appearance of youth. By its oc-
casional use falling of the hair is imme-
diately checked, and a luxuriant and
beautiful growth of young hair induced.
The exquisite perfume and the purity of
its composition are highly appreciated,
aud as it is not a die -ind docs not stain
the skin or clothing, it is a growing favor-
ite of the toilet table everywhere. Buy a
bottle of your druggists W. M. Ilanua &
Co., and test its merits.
