he knows of
Wintersmith's Chill Cure.
Orncgor thi Corm-R-JornNiL,
Dr. Winter mith Sir: T. waive a rule I have
observed for many years the value of your
remedy prompting mo to say, in reply to
your request, what I know of your Chill
Cure. Ihe private assurances of its efficacy
I had, and the good results of Its effects I
had observed on Mr. R. W. Meredith, who,
for more than fifteen years, had r.een tore
man of my office, induced me to test it in
my family, th' results have been entirely
satisfactory. The fir t case was of two
years' standing, in which I believe every
known remedy had been trie with tempo
rary reliel the chills returning periodically
ana with seemingly increased severity.
Your oure broke them at once, and there has
been no recurrence of them for more than
six months. The other case was ot a milder
form, and yielded more readily to other
remedies; but the chill would return at in
tervals until your medicine was used, since
which time, now several months, they have
entirely disappeared. From the opportu
nity I have bad to judge, I do not hesitate to
express my belief that your Chill Cure is a
valuable speoific, and perlorms all yon
promise for it. Respectful ly,
W. N. HALDEMAN.

were of the mott affectionate t ha'ac

was sigped "Uncle AVill," and the
wiiter txpreescd a desire to lave his
nephew with him. All of the letterj
were in tbe most affectionate s'rain,
proving conclusively in how much
esteem tbe young man was held by his
people, tie was very neatly dres-ed
in a suit of fine cassimere and wore
low quartered shoes, one of which was
in the mud hole into which he was
thrown by the pilot, lie wts about
25 years of atfe, with auburn hair and
brown eyts, and was smoothly rhaven.
The body was taken to a plat of
ground near the National Cemetery
and buried. On their way back to
Wells Sta ion one of the men on the
hand car wbich bad c?nveyel the
bedy fo tbe burial giound, saw a coat
floating on top of the water in a ditch
this s'de of the bridge, and in flailing
it out tbey pulled the bed 7 of another
man out with it. Cards and letters in
his pocket lead ti the bttlief that be
was also a primer, and his name J.

papers a crd with the addr.si ' J.

that tbey were both knocked oS at the
same time, O'Baogh fulling to the rear
platform and clinging there until the
train passed ever the bridge, when he
tnmb'ed off, detd, into the ditch.
Justice Blackwell held an inquest. In
both cases a verdict of accidental

OF 0L. ROBERT F,
On Account of a Scurrilous Article la
tbe Columns or the Weekly
A rod has teen in pickle for Col,
George G. Dent, the editor of the
Jirjmblican, lor some tune, and it dees
not seem to have lost any of its
strength through Ions soakins.
xn tDe early sprmg nme, when the
trees were juit begiuniog to put out
their leaves, s weekly sheet christened
Ihe Independent was started, and
though there was nothioe independent
about it, several candidates who were
sextons for the .Mugwump vote, sus
tained it witn tneir announcements,
Alter all the blood hud been diawn
from that source that its editors could
extract, the Independent was turned
over to George G. Dent, who threw off
the thin guise ot independency and
canea it tne Jiepuottcan. tie was de
termined to be talked about and bave
his paper discovered, and as he could
think of nothing- else printed the fo
lowing scurrilous article about Col. R.
F. Looney, then a candida e for Gov

inaugurate a system cf repudiation in

and if he dees this personally, how
can we believe that be will not, aa
Govertor, repudiate the State debt?
Dtbrell er Bob Taylor before Looney,
We must have a n an of honor for
Governor. Col. Liouey made enough
money, it appears, in toe celebrated
suit of Liouey vj. O'Conner to pay c IT

bow can a laborer support him? Do
they deaire auoiher. penitentiary ring?
If so, Col. Looney is the man. A man
who will repudiatu bis own indebted
ness is not a fit man for Governor,
although tbe law may, by the statute
of ll'ci.ation or bankruptcy, aid him."
Go'. Lconey was then out of the
city, but his Mends were deeply in
censed that so infamous and wholly
uufoundad a thing should ba said
about him, and his son, Mr. Thomas
C. Looney, seising a li g stick started
out to hunt Dant up. iie had been
suddenly seized with an attack of gout
and took the t'ain for Hot Springs

Mr. Tom Looney, who had a so been
absent, met him yesterday evening
on Madison street in front of the Mer
cantile Bank. Walking up to him he
tapped him on the shoulder to atirnct
his attention, snd as he turned let 11 y
at h m with his fist Dent threw up
both hands and avoided the blow, but
Looney w.is in earnest, and the next
time be let fly he coaned his man.
He promenaded cn him until bystand
ers Interfered and tbe police were
ca led. Mr. Looney was anested aud
put up a forfeit. Dent disappeared,
but the police were looking for him
late yesteiday evening.

Saved From the Poison of a Snake
.Captain Jack, a snake charmer, who
has been traveling through Pennsyl
vania with an Indian medicine doctor
and tooih-puller, was bitten by a cop
perhead snake, whose held he bad
put in his month. The snake bit him
twice in tbe mouth, and Captain Jack
said that he thought thai it would kill
him. He said that the accident was
wholly due to his forgetting tl.at from
the 20: h to the 25th of Auuuat copper
heads should not be handl d, as then
their bite is fatal. Fortunately for the
Captain, howevi r, he had a bottle of
whisky in his pocket and a package ( f
Ko-Ko Tulu. He draok the one and
chewed the other, snd at last accounts
was reported out of danger.

Advice to DIollierM.
Mrs. Winalow's Soothing Syrup
should always be used when children
are cutting tueth. It relieves the little
sufferers at once; it produces natural,
quiet sleep by relieving the child
from pain, and the little cherub
awakes aa "bright as a button." It is
very pleaeant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all
pain, relieves wind, regulates tbe
bowels, and ia the best known remedy
for diarrhoea, whether arising from
teething or other causes. Twenty
