That State Furnishes the Most
Surprising of Tuesday's
COMPLETE CHANGE OF FRONT.
A Republican Governor and
Six Congressmen Are
KANSAS CITY, NOT. 8.—The most sur
prising of Tuesday's upheavals was the
transfer of Missouri from the Demo
cratic to the Bepnblioan column. This
change of front was not made apparent
until Wednesday afternoon when the
returns from the country precincts be*
gan to come in. Heretofore these have
shown nothing but strong Democratic
leanings, but the returns show that
Missouri cannot be longer counted in
the solid Democratic column. Districts
and counties that have heretofore
gone Democratic, have completely
changed front and reports from
these Democratic strongholds show
strong Republican victories. The
Third congressional district, which in
1892 gave Dockery 3,401 plurality, has
voted for a Republican. Tarsney, in
the Fifth district in 1892, received a
majority of 5,167. This year he is not
sure of being returned, as Van Horn
claims the district by a few hundred.
In the Eleventh "Silver Dick" Bland
is elected to stay at home and a Repub
lican will represent the district in the
The latest returns received from 85
counties in Missouri Republican gains
of 14,000 is shown and the election of
their entire state ticket, by a plurality
of at least 10,000, is assured. The
lower house of the state legislature is
Republican, but the Democrats, who
have a majority in the [senate, will be
able to carry things on a joint ballot.
Nothing definite can be learned, how
ever, as to what their majority is until
complete official returns have been re
Returns from some of the congres
sional districts are rather conflicting,
but on the whole show a decided Re
publican gain. At least six Demo
cratic candidates for congress were de
feated and possibly several more will
be counted iu the Republican column
when complete official returns are in.

WiacoMin Republican* Get the £ntire
MILWAUKEE, Nov. 8.—Complete re
turns from 6a out of 70 counties in the
state give a Republican plurality of
54,620. This will be increased by the
returns to come to between 56,000 and
60,000. The Republicans control the
senate by seven majority, electing 20
senators out of 24 and having four hold
overs out of 13. The assembly is Re
publican by 35 majority. The nine
congressmen are all Republican, again
of six. Sauerhering, Rep., defeats
Barwig in the Second by 244.

Also Nineteen Congressmen.
CINCINNATI, NOV. 8.—More complete
returns indicate that the Republican
plurality for secretary of state will ex
ceed 150,000. The present Ohio delega
tion in congress consists of 11 Demo
crats and 10 Republicans. The newly
elected delegates consist of 19 Republi
cans and 2 Democrats. The Republi
cans do not concede the election of
Sorg in the Third and Lay in the
Fourth districts, their pluralities being
less than 100.

DETROIT, NOV. 8.—From the latest
compilations of reports from the state
it is apparent that Governor Rich's
plurality will exceed 90,000. The plu
ralities on 12 congressmen-elect range
from 2,800 to 11,200, the latter being
about the amount of Congressman Bur
rows' plurality. The entire Republican
congressional ticket was successful.
One Lone Democrat.
DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 8.—The latest
returns received by The Free Press
show that of the 32 state senators
elected every one is a Republican. Of
the 100 members of the house all are
Republicans save one, John Donovan
of the Bay county district. Many dis
tricts which had not returned Republi
can legislators for a quarter of a cen

supreme court justioes and comptroller,
sufficient returns hare not been re
ceived to indicate which party has been

state tioket. The returns now indicate
that the Republicans have elected six
of the seven congressmen.

New England Experiencing
the Worst Weather Since
the Blizzard of '88.
Great Destruction of Property
and Disasters to Shipr
BOSTON, NOV. 8.—A terrific storm
has raged for the past 36 hours all over
New England. Its violence was only
equalled by the great blizzard of 1888.
Reports from various points indicate
disasters to shipping and great destruc
tion of property, aggregating in value
several hundred thousands of dollars.
In this city the storm raged with
great violence, and in the centre of the
town the streets are strewn with
wrecked telephone and telegraph wires
These crossed and twisted wires were a
menace to life, and destructive fires
were threatened in many places. Many
horses, while being driven through the
streets, trod on live wires and were
Shocked to Death by Electricity.
The suffering brutes that were not in
stantly killed had to be shot in order to
put them out of misery.
At Providence, R. I., the storm was
very violent and caused great damage.
Telephone, telegraph and trolley wires
were swept from their fastening and
hung in bunches in the streets and from
buildings, endangering life. As soon
as possible the electric currents were
cut off and serious damage thereby
averted. Along the coast a tremendous
sea roared and the raging waters broke
into the lower harbor. Reports from
Vineyard Haven and Portsmouth tell of
fleets which narrowly escaped destruc
tion by taking refuge in places of
NKRVE AND A SHARP KNIFE,
Unprecedented and Bxqalatt*)* IMlaate
For the first time on reoord the stur
geon's sharp pointed knife has pene
trated to the pancreas and saved a man's
life. The operation was recently per
formed at the Hahnemann hospital
Some great surgical work is performed
at this hospital, but there is a strict un
derstanding that operations shall not be
reported to the lay world, and that the
name of the subject shall never be given
out. The subject this time was a well
to do merchant, who paid the surgeon a
very large sum for his marvelous skill.
There was a hard lump just below the
patient's stomach. His stomaoh pained
him, and his digestion waa not good.
The lump kept growing. His doctor
made a out in the abdomen and saw
that the lump was beyond the reach of
ordinary surgery. The merchant would
probably die. I
One of the surgeons at the Hahne
mann hospital said he would like to
make another slit in the abdomen, be
lieving he might succeed in removing
the Inmp. If he did, it might kill the
merchant just the same, but if some
thing was not done he would die any
So the merchant took the last chance.
6 inch slit was made, and thesurgeon
deftly ran bis fingers down under the
ifrwnaMi and found a lump as large as
his fist attaohed to the pancreas. The
pancreas is about 5 inches long, an inch
in thickness and 2 inches broad. From
the fact that it digests all of the fats
taken into the system the panoreas is a
highly important organ of a human be
When the cut arteries had been
damped and the physicians had sponged
away the blood and then realised the
enormous size of the object clinging to
the panoreas like a toadstool to a log,
they thought the case was hopeless. But
the operating surgeon still kept up his
perva It is not the place of an operat
ing surgeon to lose his nerve. As he
surveyed the situation he knew that if
he cut away even the slightest segment
of the pancreas the merchant was done
for. Only by the very nicest calculation
could the right cuts be made. He
sponged off the blood and went to work.
One and then another incision of the
blade, and the cyst, filled with its hor
rible fetid matter, was removed, having
been lopped neatly off just where it was
joined to the pancreas.
In a few days the patient was on his
feet again and said he felt like a new
man. And now the physicians are won
dering how many men have died from
lumps in their stomachs who might
have been saved and just how far the
surgeon's knife may be effective again
in an operation on the pancreas.—New
A DUMMY ON THE TRACK.
An Agony of Horror For the Motorman,
but Fun For the Boys.
The street urchins who spend their(
days round Eleventh and Twelfth streets
and Third avenue, Brooklyn, looking
for the mischief the father of all evil i§
supposed to supply for "idle hands t6
do," have found anew vacation amuse
ment, and some of the motormen on th|
Third avenue trolley line are on thi
verge of nervous prostration.
The boys beg, borrow or steal old
olothes until they have succeeded in get
ting together a very complete man's
outfit The next thing is a dummy, life
size, which is well dressed, even to hat
and shoes. A dozen or more conspira
tors, escorting this semblance of a man,
stroll carelessly onto the track in front
of an advancing car, talking busily.
The bell is rung loudly, the boys scat
ter, and the dummy falls across the
track. Then the jokers discover their,
histrionic talent They rush back, ap
parently in terror, and make futile ef
forts to get the man out of danger. |.
In the meantime the motorman, who
is not the bloodthirsty wretch driving
the car of Juggernaut that he is pop
ularly supposed to be, is in an agony of
horror. His hair fairly stands on end,:
and the veins stand out on his forehead
as he uses all his muscle on the braked
If he succeeds, in stopping before the oar
goes over the prostrate form, it is pulled
off the track and sentfiyinginto the oar
with wild shouts.
The feelings of the unfortunate man
at the brake are too vehement for utter
ance when he discovers the trick. The
scheme is very successful just about
dark, and whichever way it goes it is
great fun for the boys.—-New York

Duel Regulations In Russia. -l
New regulations have just been issued
for the settlement of disputes between
Russian officers. They provide for the
appointment of a court of honor, con
sisting of officers, which will determine
the question whether a duel is unavoid
able or not. Should the decision be lit
the affirmative, any officer declining to
accept the challenge will be dismissed,
from the service. A report upon duels
between officers is in future to be made
to the minister of war, who, in concert
with the minister of justice, may appeal
to the emperor to stop any legal pror
ceedings resulting from the hostile en»
counter.—London Public Opinion. 4

HELEN MAY DICKINSON.
Disease of the nerves, vitality at low ebb, nervous prostration and all
attendant evils and troubles are the result of the high nervous strain, the
everlasting hustle of the American people. High authorities say it is the air,
the climate that seems to intoxicate the people with such a mad desire for
wealth and position, that they never know when to rest. This unremitting
work, push and energy has made the United,States the richest country on
the face of the globe, but work, worry and a peculiar climate has made the
American people a nervous race.
Now as well as ever.
Mr. George .Dickinson, Deputy Supreme Commander of Knights of Mac
cabees of the World, whose residence is Emporium, Pa., writes:
"Dear Friends:—I feel grateful to you for the great good your valuable
medicine-Dr. Miles' Nervine-has done my littlegirl. She was almost blind from
amaurosis, [disease of the optic nerve] and could not tell daylight from
darkness. We were in despair that our rosy, baby girl should not be able to
see out of her round, blue eyes. It seemed impossible, as they looked as well
as ever, but it was true: she became worse. After several prominent oculists
and physicians had failed, we finally decided to try Dr. Miles' Nervine.
It restored her eyesight. I bought two more bottles and she is now perma
nently cured. I hope you will publish this letter for the benefit of others. I
recommend it wherever I go. I also hope that your wonderful medicine will
become so well known that every house will keep it as a standard remedy.
Its merit only needs to become known for this to become an established fact."
