The school bill took up about all the

now pretty nearly disposed of, provided
the orator does not reload himself with
further argument and, insist on discharg

amd quality of clocmence which this bill
lias called out has surprised even those
who have given fo much of their timo and
energies tiring: the pntriotic heart of the
"bouse and lobby. The progress of the
work wns easj, and. as a rule, uninter

long as the negro was not

the aesembly was aroused, ami the dogs of
war were at once unleashed. The separate
f-chool question is the one on which the
bouse most quickly divides itself on hos

party one; for several Republicans vote
steadily with the Democrats for a separa

Even a proposition to leave the vexed ques

A LAWYER ASSAULTED.
ClllCAGO,Feb. 27. At the main entrance
!o the court house today, in view of hun
dreds of people, Samuel B. Foster, attor
ney for the Grand Trunk Railway com
pany, was assaulted and knocked seuso
less by Philip Wood, a Texan. Mr. Foster
is executor of the estate of Alonzo C.
Wood, and the Texan is one of the con
testants of the will, which leaves an estate
valued at nearly 6100,000 exclusively to the
grandchildren of the deceased. Philip
Wood and other relatives filed a bill to set
aside the will, alleging that Foster bud
exercised undue influence in the matter of
the will. Attorney Foster filed a de
murrer to the bill, and when the matter
was heard a few days ago tho demurrer
was sustained, and permission given to
file an amended will. This decision, it is
alleged, angered Wood, and it is said that
he threatened to kill Foster and others
connected with the case if they did uot
withdraw. It is also alleged that Wood
visitvd Foster and offered him $10,000 to
withdraw from the case, which Foster de
clined. Today when Wood and Fcter met the
former, it is alleged, Kiid: "Xow, I'll kill
you, d n youl" at the same time making

SWINGING AROUND THE CIRCLE
Of disease to which it is adapted with the
best results, Dostotter's Stomach Bitters,
a family medicine, comprehensive in its
scopq, has never been thrust upon public
attention in the guise of a universal pan
acea for bodily ills. This claim, daily ar
rogated in the columns of the dnily press
by the proprietors of medicines far infer
ior to it as specifics, has in a thousand
instances disgusted the public in advance
by its absurdity, and the nrosnects of
other remedies of superior qualities have
been handicapped by the pretensions of
their worthless predecessors. But the
American people know, because they have
vurmeu me tact oy tne most trying tests,
that the Bitters possesses i he virtues of a
real specific in cases of malarial and liver
disorder, constipation, nervous, rheumatic,
stomach and kidney trouble. What it
does it does thoroughly, and mainly for
this reason it is indorsed and recommend
ed by hosts of respectable medicul men.
Philadelphia, Feb. 27. The Reading
Roller Mill company passed into receivers'
hands this afternodn, upon a bill in equity
filed by the Wellman Iron aud Steel com

obligations, Joseph If. Cofrode and Ellis
Ames Ballard were appointed receivers.
The debt to the Wellman company is not
given, but others amount to $100,400. The
company was chartered in 18S9 with a
capital stock of $300,000, which was subse
quently increased to $500,000. The works
arc at Redding and were leased from the
Reading Railroad company. They cover
forty acres of ground and employ 030 men.

A FAMOUS SECT.
PARIS, Feb. 27. The Waldenses, de
scendants of the famous sect which was so
cruelly persecuted for centuries on ac

still inhabit the Alps, propose to emigrate
to America. There aro 2o0 of them, and
they will probably settle in North Caro

(cloth making) has become much de

find it difficult to live.
a violent death. Such a charm being
supposed to overpower with sleep those
who come under its influence, it is nat
urally an invaluable adjunct to the im
plements employed by thieves, says the
Pall Mall Budget.
Some years ago an attempted robbery
was mado by burglars on an estate in
the county Meath, and, to quote a con
temporary account of the affair, "they
entered the house armed with a dead
man's hand, with a lighted candle in it,
believing that a candle so placed will
not be seen by any but those by whom
it is used, and also that if a candle in a
dead man's hand be introduced in a
house it will prevent those who may be
asleep from awakening1. The inmates
however, were alarmed; the robbers
fled, leaving" the dead man's hand be
Many similar stories are told of the
use of the dead hand by thieves, one
communicated by Rev. S. Baring- Gould
being worthy of notice. Two men, hav
ing come to lodge In a public house
with a view to robbing- it, asked per
mission to pass the night by the fire,
and obtained it. When tho house was
quiet, the servant girl, suspecting mis
chief, crept downstairs and looked
through tho keyhole, when she saw the
men open a sack and take out a dry,
withered hand. They anointed the
fingers with some -unguent, and lighted
them. Each finger flamed except the
thumb, which indicated that one of tho
household was not asleep.
Groso gives a full account of this
charm as used by French housebreakers,
and a variation of the same belief pre
vailed in Belgium, Not far from Bail
leui, in West Flanders, a thief was cap
tured on whom was found tho foot of a
man who had been hanged, which he
used, when engaged in his robberies, for
putting persons to sleep. Similar in
stances are quoted from Spain and Ger
many, and it is noteworthy that Mex
ican thieves have been known to carry
with them the left hand and arm of a
woman who did at the birth of her
Then thero is the corpse-candle, a
weird Implement of the robber's trade,
which, although common throughout
Europe, seems to have been more gen
eral in Germany than any other 'coun
try. Not so long ago, it may be remem
bered, four peasants in the south Rus
sian government of Kursk murdered a
girl in order to make candles of her
body, the notion being that such a
hideous light not only renders the per
petrators of robberies invisible, but
actually throws the victim or victims
into a state of somnolence. In the Ger
mnn criminal codes of the seventeenth
and eighteenth centuries we find ex
press mention made of penalties against
a crime tho motive of which was tho
making of "thieves'" or "sleep-producing
candles." This superstition has fig
ured in many a trial, and seems to be,
even to the present day, implicitly
believed in by the criminal classes. In
deed, it was suggested that the White-
chapcl murders were instigated by this
idea a theory which the celebrated Dr.
Bloch, a member of the Austrian reichs
rath, was induced to support. An in
stance of this piece of criminal lore
occurred during the trial of the German
thief, Theodore Ungcr, who was exe
cuted nt Magdeburg in 1310, when it
was brought out in evidence that a
regular traffic existed for tho supply of
these grewsome implements of the bur
glar's trade. But, instead of making
tho criminal invisible, this grim light
has more than onco done the reverse,
and caused him to be brought to justice.

American systems, through Central
America, with the systems oi Mexico
and the United States, is already well
advanced. There are, says the Review
of Reviews, to bo roads from the Cana
dian Pacific away up to the Peace river
and Mackenzie valleys, and it i3,not
very hard to believe that these may
ultimately be extended across the
Rockies to the Ukon valley in Alaska,
and continued finally to the narrow and
shallow Behring straits, across which a
connection would bo made with the I
Siberian road. Continuous rail travel
from Siberia to Constantinople will j
soon have become an accomplished fact, j
and the link from Constantinople to ,
Egyp& may be expected quite confi- j
dentiy. At the present rate of develop- j
ments in Africa the construction of a
rosd from Egypt to tho Capo ought to j
