CRUELTY TO LIVE STOCK.
New York, Dec. 22. Mr. Samuel Plim
joll, tho well kuowu English philanthro
pist and reformer, arrived hero from Eng
land on Thursday, and sincotheu he has
been busily engaged in enlisting the sym
pathies of cattle, beef and steamship men,
and others interested in such matters, in a
movement to abolish the business of ship
ping live cattle across the ocean for beef.
Mr. Plimsoll believes that it would be
inoro humane aud no more expensive to do

A COLORED MESSIAH.
KANSAS Crrr, Mo., Dec, 22. Early last '
week a number of colored men called upon
tho chief of police to ask permission to
hold "ghost dances," saying that they had
a messiah who would lead them to a
nromised land. The chief granted their
request and considered the matter a huge
joke. The craze has, however, assumed
the proportions of something more than a
joke and is rapidly spreading among the
more ignorant classes or colored ueopio
throughout the city.
Some ten or fifteen days aeo a tall,
gaunt black man mado his appearance in
what is known as "Hell's Half Acre," in
the packing house district, aud announced
himself as tho messiah stnt to save the
colored race. This was Reuben Carter.
He came here from Pomeroy, K m., where
he had long been known as "Cranky
Kube." He went among the negroes and
gradually drew converts to his ideas, and
at last accumulated quite a following
amonc the neeroes in the west liottoms.
Carter preached the destruction of the
wuoie wnite race, anu saytt tue calamity is
to occur next spring, lie warns me umciss
to follow him if they would escape the
general destruction. Ho tells them that
all who follow the whites will suffer their
fate, but those who go with him will be
taken to tho "Promised Land" and placed
in power, and the wealth of tho world will
lie theirs. His story is a sort of revised
edition of the Iudian craze, and he has ev
idently been reading what has been going
on amontl the red race.
He claims that "tho Promised Land" is
in Oklahoma aud says ho will lead all the
believers there iu tho spring and they will
then see that ho possesses miraculous
power. He promises that cities will riso
in a night for thoso who will follow him
and that these cities will be built by tho
angels of God, who will be Eont to nerve
him. He enters into a minute description
and it tallies exactly with the city whicli
the Book of Kevelations tells of. Ho says
the city will be called the New Jerusalem
nnd will bo built of gold uud precious
Tho permission granted by the chief of
police has been fully taken advantage of
and the colored people in the district men
tioned havo been holding nightly revels
which thoy call religious dance.s,but which
nro now beginning to assumo the appear
ance of idolatrous orgie3. As the dancing
continues the negroes appear to go back
to their ancient savagery and their move
ments now resemble the incantations of
tho voodoo dancers of the south. Men
and women join in the craze and the dance
becomes wilder and wilder every night,
until the chief is seriously considering the
revoking of the permits, thus stopping tho
Carter has disappeared, and his follow
ers say that lie is in retirement until New
Year's day, when, they say, lie will appear
in all his "glory and show his wonderful
power by signs and miracles. Tho danc
ing, which lias heretofore been public to
anyone who desired to witness it is now
done in secret, aud admission is refused to
all who do not believe in tho new Messiah.
There is no doubt that the man has gained
great control over the people of his race,
and unless some measures are takeu there
will be trouble with the converts.

HEIRS TO A FORTUNE.
San Antoxio, Tex.. Dec 22. An im
portant claim has come to light iu this
city, in whicli the right and title to a large
portiou of the city of Chicago in the
vicinity of Hennepin Park, is in question
nnd claimed by heirs in Texas. Robert L.
Summertin, an attorney in thi city has
investigated tho case and has fixed 'upon
tho heirs the property as follows:
Bruno and Horatio Durst, of Leon
county, John Durst of Tyerl, J.
W. Blake anti Hattie Moss of
Limestone county, John S. Durst of Kim
ball county, Simon nnd Klla Batcman of
Leon county, A. A. and Louis J. Hodkins
of Dallas county, and James I. Iron. The
history dates back to the time when the
Pottowatomie Indinns owned tho present
site of Chicago. Col. Holiday, stationed
at Fort Dearborn, married an old chief's
daughter, who was possessed of much of
this land. This Indian wife survived long
enough to will tho property to agraud
daughter, wife oi Col. N. Gussotte, a prom
inent banker of Corpus Christ i.
This heir died iu 1S64 without issue.
The property has been in the hands of
attorney!, who, during the late war. tan
gled the titles and sold the property for
taxes. Recent, however, Attoney Sum
mertin learned of another brand! oftlie
family. The chain of evidence U perfect,
and already attorneys in Chicago have
been heard from who are willing to com
promise liberally for their clients. Mr.
bummertin is armed with tull powers of
attorney from every heir, and lie will leave
Dec. 26 for Chicago to push tho claim of
his clients. This property is valued at
nearly ?20,000,0:K). Tde story is quite ro
mantic in its details, and it has takeu
more than a year's work to complete the
chain of evidence.

there the coffin containing the husband's
body was borne into the church. After
service tho coffins were again placed side

of Toledo's young brokers, Ed Speer. suc

The First National, Merchants' National

for $1,000 each on the Northern National,

a good-looking young womnn of 20, came
here four weeks ago from Owonsboro, Kv.,
dressed in man's clothes, nnd went to St.
Joseph's hospital for treatment, giving the
name of Charlie Smith. She was sick with
chills. She was placed in a male ward and
remained there until she was discharged as
cured without betraying tho secret of her
sex. A week later she turned up at the
city hospital suffering as before, and was
assigned to the male ward. Again she suc
cessfully passed herself off us a. man, and
after her recovery the manager employed
her to do odd jobs about the place. Today
ono of the femalo nurses detepted her and
reported her to the matron. An itivestig-i-tion
was ordered nnd Miss' Anderson owned
up and resumed her petticoats. She says
she ran away from Owensboro because-her
uncle, with whom she lived, was unkind
to her. She will be given employment in

western lines said today that the trunk
lines were dissatisfied becaubo they were
not given the choice of the classification
chairman, which will be an important po
sition if it is ever created. That the trunk
lines will ultimately endorse the uniform

here, as railroad manncers all know that
if they do not, then congress will empower
the interstate commerce commission to
prepare one for them and make them

Believing as I do iu the benefit, of the
shock produced by aco d bath, I have stud
ied the matter in all its details and believe
that I have a knowledp e ns to who should
indulge in this luiury, and how they can
accustom themselves to this shock; but to
make the sweeping asfsrtion that infanta
with malignant measle i should be pitched
into a cold bath is, in n y
brutal, but cold blooc cd
may bo special cases in which this treat
ment might be justified of which the phy
sician in charge ought to be the best judge.
There is no doubt th it to those who can
take the cold plunge n becomes a tonic,
but even for a well pt-rson who has not
properly accustomed Limself to jumping
into a cold bath ia the cold weather is ab
solutely dangerous, and the health of many
has been permanently injured by so doing.
Many of our physicians know very little
on this subject, not having mado a study
of it. Those practicing at the baths of
Germany, France, Bclci"m and Hungary
are thoroughly conversant with it, and the
fact that they instruct their patients to ap
proach the cold plunie by slow degrees
ought to bo sufficient proof that it is abso
lutely criminal to advise the public to
throw their sick infants into a cold bath.
Any ono desiring to try the cold plunge
system should see that the temperature of
the bathroom is at least TO degs. The bath
is best taken in the morning on rising,
with the water at a temperature of 66 degs.,
reducing it 1 deg. daily until arriving at a
temperature of 03 degs. One should not re
main in the water but a few spmhds. and
' before jumping in should always wet the
head and chest. Rub briskly and dry
thoroughly on getting out, and dress as
rapidly as possible. If a glow does not take
placo do not reduco the temperature, as ifi

Mme. de Montijo watched the progress of
her daughter's engagement to the emperor
with a certain anxiety. Writing to an in
timate friend, the Marquis de R , minis
ter of Franco at Berlin, after the official ,
j announcement had been mado of the bo-
i trothal. she said: "I do not know if I
. ought to be happy or to weep. How many
mothers who now envy me would not un-
derstand if they saw tho tears that fill

I . . . .
keep thinking that in your country queens
have littlo happiness. I cannot help it;
I am haunted by the thought of Marie
Antoinette, and I ask myself with terror,
Will my child share the same fate?"
Mile, do Montijo was faithful to her
friends. One day, when her engagement
was still a secret, f-ho had bound heiself
tnd two of her friends by a vow that tho
first who attained to high social distinction
Would help on the other two through life.
Shortly after she came to her friends' I
houso in the rue du Bac to announce that
she was about to wear a crown. After her
marriage the empress kept her promise.
In a letter she asks one of these friends to
tutoyer her, as in the old time, adding
that she feels lonely in her palace, and
grieved by the "consciousness of being sur
rounded by sulks." The extracts given
from her letters aro full of romantic inter

providing at ienst one ior eacn memDer or

stem of each paste a small strip of white
paper, on which may be written a pleasant
quotation or a "local hit." In the latter
case tho name of the person for whom it Is
designed should be written on the paper
also, or else the leaves should be numbered
to correspond with the guest.
The leaves are then crinkled with a thin
knife, or else drawn up through aclothes
pln, to imitate lettuce, and are placed
loosely in a large salad bowL If one suffi
ciently large is not ut hand, a pudding dish
with Its outer surface concealed by vines
or a band of muslin sewed with leaves or
wreaths of paper flower (if nothing bet
