Ths New York correspondent of

for pensions tbe next fiscal year. . An
enormous sum, to which, if some of
the demagogues in Congress have

At Lahore, in India, a native pub
liahing-house trans'ates European infi
del publications as soon as they ap
pear, and issues them for publication
among the Hindcoi, printing editions
in the languages adapted nr circula
tion in the different sections. At
Lucknow there is a printing-house so
large that it keeps 900 workmen busy
printing the sacred writings of the Mo
hammedans. Christian missionaries
find the circulation of these things a
serious hinderance to their work.
Thb etorm of Wednesday, which
covered the itreets of the city with
snow to the depth of ten inches, was
general all over the State and so se
severe as to greatly impede and
in some cafes put a i etop to
travel and traffic for the first
time in the history of Tennessee. At
various points in Kentucky and Vir
ginia the storm was equally severe,
and in the City of Mexico snow fell
for the first time since 1850 and to the
depth of four inches. Warmer
weather is predicted for to-day in this
locality. '
Taa comment made and construc
tion pnt upon the visit of Secretary
Lamar to this city by the New York
Tribune is really laughable, notwith
standing it is malicious and vindictive,
He came here because his two daugh
ters were here, and bis visit had noth
ing to do with the Pan-Electric tele
phone cases. Mr. Heiskell, his son-in
law, a citizen of Memphis, is one of the
attirneys of the Bell Telephone Com
pany, and with Gen. J. B. Heiskell,
his father, if the suits ordered by the
govenment are begun in the United
States Court here, will be found a very
earnest, alert and intelligent opponent
of tbe Tan-Electric. Mr. Lamar is not
the kind of man the Tribune, in its
hatred of him, would have the public
believe.
Blaine is looming up again, and his
friends claim, is as strong as ever.
F amuel Fessenden of Connecticut, late
of the Republican National Commit
tee, on Thursday, said to a reporter o(
ths Cincinnati Enquirer: " There isn't
a Blaine man of all the hosts who
were in Chicago in 18S1 who is not a
Blaine man to-day. A few men who
were for him for policy then are osten
sibly against him now; bat they will
be for him again for the same reason
as in 1883. You can mark it down on a
pieA of paper in indelible ink that
Blaine will be renominated in 1888,
' as certainly as he lives and the con
vention shall meet. What is more, he
Will be elected." Cleveland's manage
ment of publio affairs says he will, if
nominated, be defeated.

Company vs. the National Impioved
Telephone Company cane up to-day
oeioretne uniteusw esu.rcuituonrt.
Judges Bardee and Billings preeided,
Mr. Farrar, of counsel for the defense,
submitted a motion to continue the
case indefinitely, as the Derartmont of
Justice is at present preparing a bill in
equity, that an Id junction pendente
lti Btiould not be gi anted until
the suit brought by the government
is disoosed of, reserving the right of
complainant to renew tne action. Tbe
Court ruled the motion to be cumn
lative, with the injunction pendente
lite, reserving the right to separate
them in tbe course of tbe proceedings.
Tbe case was proceeded with. Mr.
ttarrow of Bojton, of counsel for com
plainant, offered several affidavits and
other documents in evidence. Tbe
question raised is in regard to the sole
right claimed by the Bell Telephone
Company to manufacture electric
speaking telephones under its pat
ents. It brought this suit to have
its -exclusive right acknowledged and
to enjoin the defendant company
from infringing upon the plaict ff 's
patents. Tbe points raised bv the de
fendants covsr the whole history of
tbe art of transmission of aiticulate
speech through the medium of elec
tricity. They claim that Philip Keis
of Germany, and not Bell, is the in
ventor of tbe telephone: that Bell pro
cured by fraud tbe contents of tbe
caveat of Prof. Elisha Gray, throngh
which knowledge he was first enabled
to tranemit articulate speech. The de
fendants deny that they infringe
upon Bell's patent.

tbe itirm was more severe in Middle

Signal Bervlce station from joints in

drifts badly in that section, effectually
stopping all mail carriers and t-avel
generally. AH etsge coaches are (now
bound, and do not hope to be able to
travel for several days.
All tbe city schools adjourned to

dren to reach tbe builJings. The av
erage depth of the enow bote,ia twenty
inches. Business v. at practically sus
pended throughout the city during

pension of railroad traffic. There are
but few trains running. The raseen

CURED OF CATARRH .
BY DR. J. A. HUNTER'S TREATMENT. !
Letter from Mr. Harreaves, of the firm of Morgan & Har
greaves. Dry Goods Merchants, Washington, Pa.
Washington, Ta., July 14th, 1877. .
Dk. J. A. Huntrr, San Francisco Dear Sir: V
I will have to introduce myself before going any further. I was under
your care in the fall of 1875 and early part of 1876 for Catarrh, "Thary.,
gitis," you told me, and catarrh in the car, one of my ears the left one
being very badly affected. Now, it is about aural trouble I wish to ask
you. The ear which you doctored has ceased to trouble nie, but the
other the right one though it docs not seem to be diseased, collects wax
which gets hard, or caked, incrusted on the tube leading to the car. Aj
drop of olive oil relieves it for the time, until it appears tu dry up, and
then not really pains but annoys me.
The sensation I now feel is not so much in the car, but at the end of tha
Eustachian tube, Just where it enters the throat : for when I sing it causes,
a sensation a kind of harshness in the throat merely at that txiint where
the tube enters the throat, as I understand from the cuts in the papers yott
gave me.
The reawn 1 wrote te you. infreftrtna to tonsulting home physician), it
that you cured me tf Catarrh when others did me no good, and transforms
me front an inwlid to 0 man of not merely good but robust health. If yon
will write and tell trie what to do, I will send whatever charges you see
proper to make. y
When I was under your care before, you prescribed for my cars, Iwu.
LATiON. Hoping to hear from you soon, I remain, yours sincerely,
A. W. Harguiavis.
REPORT AFTER NINE YEARS,
AftrtKME, Kansas, January a, 88fl.
Dr. Jameb A. Huntkr, 80 Court St., Memphis, Tenn.: v
Dear Sir I am in receipt of your letter of enquiry, (forwarded to me
from Washington, Va.,) about my condition of health. I reft Washington
nnd quit former business (dry goods), more than two years since. Tbe
close confinement had worn me out. I now have perfect health. The
treatment yqu gave me for chronic catarrh was effective, and the results
permanent. When you treated wo in '77 I considered that you saved mjt
life, and now, at this time, I am still of the same opinion. I am glad to
hear of your return to America, for if I ever have a return of catarrh D
shall want your skill, as I know of no other physician so able to cope with
this horrible disease. ,
If you wish to use me as a reference do so at any time. I feel so grate
ful to you for what you have done for me that I w;ll gladly serve you.
Wishing you health and success, I am your former patient and hearty
we&wisher, . "; -y- Very truly,
A. W. IIarxreavm.
