How at Blain Lott hi? Scalp and
Found lt Again.
A correspondent of tho Missouri
Democrat, writing from Omaha on
the 8th instant, says that the remains
of Enginoer Brookes Bowers and
Fireman Goorge Henshaw have just
arrived. On the same train was a
man named William Thompson, a
native of England, who turned ont to
be one of the telegraph repairers re?
ported killed. He attracted a great
deal of attention, from the very ex?
traordinary fact that the covering 'or
the head which nature had so kindly
endowed him with was absent. Peo?
ple flocked from all parts to view the
gory, ghastly baldness which had
como upon him so suddenly, without
any premonitory symptoms. The
poor fellow suffered" horribly, if we
might judge by his facial contor?
tions. He seemed weak from loss of
blood. He had received a gaping
wound in the neck and a bullet in the
muscle of his right arm. He was
taken to the Hamilton House, and a
physician was sent for, who attended
to his wounds. In a pail of water
was his scalp, about nine inches in
length and four in width, somewhat
resembling a drowned rat, as it float?
ed, curled up, on the water. His
statement is os follows:
"About 9 o'clock Tuesday night,
myself aqd, five others left Plum
Creek Station, and started up the
track on u Lund-car to hunt up where
the break in the telegraph was.
When we came to where the break
proved to be, we saw a lot of ties
piled on the track; but at the same
moment, Indians jumped up from
the grass all around and fired on us.
We fired two or three shots in return,
and then, as the Indians pressed on
UH, wo ran away. An Indian on a
pony singled me out and galloped up
to me. After coming to within ten
feet of me, he fired, the bullet enter?
ing my right arm; seeing mo still
run, ho 'clubbed his rifle' and knock?
ed me down. Ho then took out his
knife, stabbed me in the neck, and
then making a twirl round his fingers
with my hair, he commenced sawing
and hacking away at my scalp.
Though the pain was awful and I felt
dizzy and sick, I knew enough to
keep quiet. After what seemed to be
half an hour, he gave the last finish?
ing cut to tho scalp on my left tem?
ple, and as it still hung a little, he
gave it a jerk. I just thought then
that I could have screamed my life
out. I can't describe it to you. It
just felt as if the whole head was
taken right off. The Indian then
mo'inted and galloped away, but as
he went, ho dropped my scalp within
a few feet of me, which I managed to
get and hide. The Indians were thick
in the vicinity or I then might have
made my escape. While lying down,
I could hear the Indians moving
around whisperiug to each other, and
then shortly after placing obstruc?
tions on the track. After lying down
about nn hour ami a half, I heard the
low rumbling of the train as it carno
tearing along, and I might have
been able to ting it off had I dared."
Drs. Pecke and Mooro, of this city,
will endeavor to resei tho scalp on his
head, and they are couiident they can
do it well. As he is a strong man, it
is expected that he will recover
health and strength.
The Lexington (Ky.) Statesman
says: "We have heard tho following
curious story from a gentleman who
was cognizant of the facts: In 1830,
tho Kev. Wm. Adams planted a peach
stone from a black or Georgia peach.
From it, carno up two sprouts, grew
to bo trees, and singular to say, one
of the trees bore free-stone and the
other cling stone peaches, of the
samo variety, and both kinds look
almost exactly alike."
A CO-OPERATIVE SO?TETY.-The
New York Post gives the following
account of a co-operative ?ociety in
The Union Co-Operativo Laud and
Building Society was formed under
the supervision of John W. Farmer.
Tho object of tho society is, by co?
operation, to enable the members,
who are all laboring men of the
poorer class, to become their own
landlords, by providing funds for
each member to purchase bouses,
laud and other real estate, within a
radius of teu miles from the city of
New York. This is similar to the so?
cieties which bavo been in operation
in London for twenty years past, but
under a moro improved plan, to meet
the peculiar wants of American la?
The society consists of 590 actual
paying members. 415 of these are
already connected with the first so?
ciety with about 1,000,000 of shares
taken-about $2,000 paid in. The
first .society is already formed, and
on Friday evening, appropriations
will be made for the purchase of two
houses, in sums varying from $2,000
to $5,000, according to the amount
Another society will immediately
be formed. $1,000 shares are now
being issued nt fifty cents weekly.
No member is allowed to take less
than two shares, equal to $2,000, and
up to $6,000. By paying $1 weekly,
you can purchase a house worth
$2,000; $1.50, a $3,000 house; $2, a
$4,000 house; $2.50, a $5,000 house;
$3, a $6,000 house, etc. This so
oiety claims to secure to its members
the fullest benefit of co-operation;
to make every allowance for sick
members; to advance all moneys by
ballot and sale alternately. It re?
ceives no interest from its borapwing
members. Members may withdraw
or transfer their shares on giving the
usual notice. Borrowers can fix
their own time of repayment from
one to ten years, in weekly or month?
NAPOLEON ON THE PARIS EXHIBI?
TION.-On the 5th instant, Napoleon
received the foreign Commissioners
of the Exhibition to the number of
fifty-three. These gentlemen had
appointed a committee to draw up au
address, which was presented by
Count d'Avila, Portuguese Ambassa?
dor at tho Court of Spain. Napoleon
replied as follows:
i "GENTLEMEN: The net which you
are 'at present'' engaged in with re?
spect to me touches me i deeply, and
furnishes me with an occasion of
rendering full justice to the spirit of
conciliation and friendly agreement
which has constantly animated you
in the exercise of your delicate func?
tions. If you carry home with you a
pleasant reminiscence of the recep?
tion which you have met with in
France, we, on our side, will always
remember with pleasure thiu great
international fete, to which so many
foreigners of distinction have added
an unusual lustre. Representatives
of the idea of labor in every part of
the universe, you have for some time
shered in our common existence, and
been able to convinco yourselves that
all civilized nations aro tending moro
and more to form only a single fami?
ly. From this competition of intel?
ligences so diversified-from this
amalgamation of interests of all na?
tions, will emanate, I have not the
slightest doubt, that harmony which
is so necessary for the progress of
humanity. I thank you, gentlemen,
for the language which you have
employed when speaking of the Em?
press and of my son ; be assured that
they share in my gratitude for your
efforts, my sympathy for yourselves
personally, and my wishes for the
peace of the world."
AN EMBLEMATIC FLA?.-A new
United States flag, recently raised at
the Citadel, bas twenty-six of its stars
in a diamond cluster, in tho contre of
tho Union, and tito ten others dis?
posed around the border of the Union,
two in each corner and ono in the
centre of tho bottom border of the
Union, and ono in the centre of the
top border Of thc Union. Whether
intentionally or not, this flag is em?
blematic, so far as it separates ten of
the stars from the remaining twenty
six. - Charleston Mercury.
The Pa?l Mall Gazette says that in
the library of tho Houso of Lords the
original copy of the "Sealed Book
of Common Proyor," which has been
so long missing, has been diecoverod.
It is found in tho manuscript that
tho bishops bad ordered that the
Communion Tables should stand at
the East end of tho chancel, and that

WELLjWORTH REaDINO_Who is
thoro that does not desire to bo always ex?
empted from indigestion-to have a good
appetite, a painless stomach, a clear head,
a regular pulse, a healthy complexion? If
this meets tho eye of any who aro not
thus bloBBod, let them try HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTER8. We guarantee that
this delightful tonic will restore any sto?
mach, however weak, to a healthy condi?
tion; that it will bring back tho truant ap?
petite, and give permanent vigor to thc
whole system. The feeble and emaciated,
suffering from dyspepsia or indigestion in
any form, aro advised, for tho sake of
their own bodily and mental comfort, to
try it. Ladies of the most delicate consti?
tution testify to ita harmless and its re?
storative properties. Physioians every?
where, disgusted with the adulterated
liquors of commerce, describe iv as tho
SAFEST AND MOST RELIABLE
of all stomachics. Its effects are inst ant a
neous. It does not require weeks of dos
ing before its virtues are realized. Thou?
sands sit down to their meals void of
appetite, eating because others eat. Tho
food thus forced into the stomach does
positive harm. Instead of strengthening
tho system, it engenders a variety of ail
ments, which end in confirmed dyspepsia.
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS,
taken regularly before meals, will prevent
all this._Aug 14 t6
THE public esteem in which PANK
NIN'S HEPATIC BITTERS aro held, is
another proof of their excellence as a
Tonic. They aro recommended by physi?
cians generally, and have novor disap
?oin ted those who have mado uso of thom,

complaints. For sale by all druggists.

A Truly Wonderful Medicine?
HEINITSB'S QUEEN'S DELIGHT.
Liver Complaint Cured by Queen's
THE symptoms of Liver Complaint are
uneasiness and pain in the right side,
and soreness upon touch immediately
under the inferior ribs; inability to lie
upon tho left side, or, if at all, a dragging
sensation is produced which seriously
affects respiration, causing, very often, a
troublesome cough. Together with theaa
sympt?me, wo perceive a coated tongue,
acidity of the stomach, deficiency of per?
spiration, and sometimes a sympathetic
pain in the shoulder, with a great disposi?
tion to sleep, and depression of spirits,
and sometimes sores in tho mouth or
throat. These symptoms, if permitted to
continue, will eventually produce consump?
tion, the most banelnl of all diseases.
The symptoms of Dyspepsia are various;,
those affecting tho stomach arc nausea,.
heart-burn, loss of appetite, disgust for
food, sometimes a depraved appetite,
sense of fulness or A eight in the stomach,
sinking or fluttering in tho pit of the sto?
mach, sour eructations, coated tongne,
acidity of tho stomach, hurried and uifhV
cult breathing, Ac.
Tho sympathetic affections are very di?
versified-cold feet, pain or weakness
through the limbs, swimming of the head,
sudden flushes of heat, &c.
Tho use of tho QUEEN'S DELIGHT
should be persevered in until evory symp?
tom of Dyspepsia has vanished, and health,
is entirely restored.
Derangements of Liver and Stomach,
Aro sources of insanity. From disorden
or obstruction, a morbid action of the sym?
pathetic and other nerves follows, and thu
functions of the brain are impaired and
deranged; derangement there will also
produce disease (d' the heurt, skin, lungs
and kidneys. It is owing to the same
cause that thousands die with Cholera,
Bilious or Yellow Fever, and that most
baneful disease, Consumption.
Tho origin of numerous cases of Con?
sumption IS impaired digestion; and many,
manv cases of supposed Consumption
could bo entirely cured by tho uso of the
QUEEN'S DEL?GHT, as the emaciation,
debility and cough attending weakness of
tho digestive organs are so near allied to
tho symptoms of Consumption, that tho
one disease is frequently mistaken for th?
It is a well-established fact that fully
one-half of tho femalo portion of ou?
population are seldom in the enjoyment of
good health, or, to use their own cipres
aion, "never feel well " They aro languid,
devoid of all energy, extremely nervous
and have no appetite. To this class of
invalids, the Queen'B Delight is e*]>eciaUy
recommended. Their peculiar tonio ami
invigorating properties render it invalua?
ble in such cases. The patient should im?
mediately discard all pills and powders, as
they only weaken the system, and resort ti?
the uso of tho Queen's Delight, tho inva?
riable result of which will be a strong and'
hearty constitution, a disappearance ot ali
nervousness, a good appetite and a perfect
restoration to health.
Weak and delicate children are made
strong by using tho Queen's Delight. In
fact, it is a Family Medicine; it can be ad?
ministered with perfect safety to a child
threo months old, thc most delicate female
or a man of ninety.
