BERLIN'S NEW SEWAGE SYSTEM. Tho City Hun sven Lnrgro Sewage Farms at a FroHx Berlin has dealt successfully with tfie Jrainajfe question. Until about a quarter of a century r.go the disposal of Beware was effected in primitive fash ion; ojen drain courses, lad!y built and with inadequate fall, ran throucii many of the streets, discharging' finally into the Iliver Spree, for whose condi tion contamination would be far too mild a word. A commission was ap pointed, which, after visitinfr various countries, especially Knland, with the view of jiraetically stmlyiiifr different systems, reported in favor of sewaire irrigation on hind at a distance from tue city. The flatness of the plain on which P.erlin is built would not allow of any gravitation scheme, and conse quently it was found necessary to adopt steam pumping. Tor tli? same reason the sewage could not all be col lected at one spot, and it was tin refore decided to divide the city into 12 drain age areas. The ground at the seven se...

f THE DEMOCRAT. II. II. ADAMS, 1'ublUher. CAPE GIRARDEAU. - MlSSOCRi MYSTERIOUS WILLIAM. AM considered a tolerably truthful chap in most thines and cen trally speaking I think I am. But human nature is incapable of rising beyond certain lim itations. There are flaws in the most tierfeet. cli:ir:icter. . B -and if I must confess it I fear I have sometimes drawn the Ion? bow a little -on the subject of horseflesh. Horses have always been tlie ruling passion of my life, and who is there who will not dilate a little to add interest to a story when mounted upon his favorite hobby. When it comes to seliinga horse that is a different matter. I would not for the world convey a false idea to an in tending purchaser. In this particular case I was a?, innocent as the driven snow, although Willikins seemed to feel hurt about it. It was all Enderby "s fault, although he declares he was per fectly blameless. Indeed, Willikins for some strange reason seems to hold me responsible for the whole affa...

t 'THE CRIME OF 73." ft Exists Only In the Minds of Those VFlfci Do Not Know Nucts. For the benefit of the thousands of intelligent people who honestly believe that a crime was committed surrepti tiously against silver in 1873, Congress man J. T. McCleary, of Minnesota, de voted considertble time, in his gTeat 6peech of February 32, to a presentation of the important facts connected with the passage of the coinage act of 1S73. The facts stand out so clearly and tell such a straightforward story that it would seem impossible that any fair minded man should, after reading them, continue to believe that there was any "conspiracy' by anybody that caused the passage of thisact. We can give but a few of the more salient points from Mr. McCleary's speech on this point: The original bill was prepared in the treasury department in the winter of 1S69-70, by John Jay Knox, then deputy comptroller of the currency, under the direction of George S. Boutwell, then secretary of the treasury. The la...

l r. V t iV!- i? s it ;: If !: a ! . s. '. I WHAT HISTORY SHOWS. The Democratic Party Is Dying and the End Is Near at Iland. The following is taken from the Chicago Times of November 7. 1880: The recent presidential election has shown that there is an invincible rea son why the Democratic party can never win a national victory. It is ihat the youth of this republic is not Democratic. The Sons of Democratic fathers have grown up Republican. So long a slavery and the war lingers within the memory of Ameri can as the youth of the republic will continue to grow up Republican: and slavery and the war will be re membered as long as the public school system exists. The public schools have slain the Democratic party with the text book. It is vain for statesmen to declare that there were as many Democrats as Republicans in the Union army. It is vain to affirm that the war for pre wrration of the Union could not have been carried to a successful close without the assistance of the Demo cratic...
