Judge Smith, at Lebanon, a
few days ago, dissolved the liq
uor dealers' injunction against
the crusading women of Morrow,
"Warren county, on the ground
that the plaintiff was engaged in
an. unlawful business, and could
not claim the protection of the
law in its violation. This is a
very important decision, and will
exercise a tremendous influence
in the Woman's War on Whisky.

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
The Queen of England sent
her speech, at the opening of
Parliament, in place of opening
the session in person. She, it was
thought, would be present at the
opening, thus giving eclat to the
occasion. The change in the
Ministry, the marriage of the
Duke of Edinburgh, and other
events, it was thought, would
furnish reasons to induce her to
be present, and grace the open
ing ef her faithful Parliament.
The speech read is not particu
larly remarkable. The usual
commonplaces are uttered the
clese of the Ashantee war, and
the marriage of her son and its
political influence,being the chiel
topics 'of remark.
JOKE ON THE SENATE.
A heavy joke was perpetrated
, on the United States Senate on
Wednesday. A communication
was laid before that grave and
honorable body stating that the
tidal, wave would soon reach
Washington and that a band of
praying women might be expec
ted to visit the Senate chamber.
The Senate was to admit them
and appoint Carpenter, Chandler
and Sprague a committee to give
them "welcome. This was "a hit
a palpable hit." The communi
cation was referred to the Com
mittee on Jjmance. lnat was a
mistake. It should have gone to
the Committee on Education and
Labor, as the object of the wo
men is to labor "with the Sena
tors in the hope of educating
them up to the point of practical

The plan is to gather the goldin-

A GREAT MISTAKE.
They do not build so wisely as
they intend who explain the wo
man's temperance crusade by
saying that none can do it so fit
ly as the women; for none have
so had the evils of intemperance
brought home to them. These
frequent remarks, and the state
ments made by a few in their
conference meetings, that they
enlist in this cause because of a
father, or a husband, or a broth
er ruined by intemperance, have
led many who are not in - the vi
cinity of these praying crusades
to suppose thev are made up of
j. a, -
female victim. This is a great
mistake. Most of the women en
listed in this cause havs no occa
sion because of their husbandsor
fathers, or sons being drunkards
but have entered into it for the
sake of humanity.
John B.Gough lectured inDay-
ton on Temperance last Wednes
day evening and uttered an im
passioned refutation of the usual
quotation of the saloon-keeper
and his friends "When thou
prayest enter into thy closet" by
saying that Jesus of Nazareth
healed all who cried unto him
from the streets and highways.
His address is said to have done
mere to brighten up the faces of
the crusaders in that city than a
dozen surrenders. Gough is the
greatest temperance lecturer in
the world. We have heard him
lecture several times, and know
how he could stir an audience
with his thrilling narratives and
entreaties when there was no ex
citement on the temperance
question. We can well imagine
what a tellinc effect he could
now make upon his hearers in
these stirring times.
TERRIBLE AND FATAL ACCIDENT.
A terrible accident happened
at a steam saw mill in Colum
biana county, Ohio, recently. A
Mr. Haines and Samuel Entriken
were laying planks on a mill car-
riage,Mr. Haines standing with
his back to the saw. A brother
of Mr. Haines was pushing a log
on a truck into the mill. The
truck came in contact with the
planks, striking them so hard as
to move them forward and against
Mr. Haine's legs. Seeing that he
could save himself ne other way,
he sat down in front of the saw.
which caught him by the coat
The saw was running very slow
ly, and first struck him about the
hip, running upward until it
struck the shoulder blade, which
was nearly sawed ofT, the last
tooth striking him on the head,
making only a slight wound.
The saw was stopped and the
man carried to his home, when it
was found that four of his .ribs
were sawed off and that one lung
was considerably injured, tie

It the Uongressional .Kecord is
not to be a record of the debates
as they were delivered on the
floor of Congress, it should be
abolished. It appears by But
ler's course in regard to the de
bate on the Sanborn contracts
that a member may not only take
from the official reporter and
printer his own remarks for al
teration, but may withhold with
them the remarks oi other mem
bers in reply. Thus the pretend
ed Congressional Eecord is
sham. Unless Congress shall pro
tect the integrity of the Kecord
it should abolish it altogether.

the State. The ladies, God bless
them, are doing a wonderful
work, and should be encouraged
by every lawabiding citizen. We
are glad to note that every re

favors the " temperance crusade,
and urges the extermination of
the liquor traffic.

FIRE AT WOOSTER. GOING WEST.
The Checkered Experience of a Young
Man Who Took Horace Greeley's Advice.
The Eureka Sentinal says: We
have been interviewed by
young man who seemed to have
had. his share of troubles and mis
fortunes in the world. Six months
ago he left a good situation in
the State of Delaware, and taking
Greeley's .advice .and started
West. Arrived at Crestline,Ohio.
he had his pocket picked of a fine
gold watch and "$200 in green
backs. Left without money he
telegraphed home for assistance;
which he received, in a few days
and again started on his journey.
He got as far as Council Bluffs
and started to walk across the
railroad bridge "which spans the
Missouri at that point; half way
over he heard a rumbling behind
him, and; on looking back, saw a
tram of cars in lus rear. To run
forward was impossible; to re
treat sudden death, and, in his
excitement, while climbing over
the outside rail of the bridge he
fell into the river. He was res
cued more dead than alive by an
old negro, who put out to his as
sistance. The next day he con
tinued going, out West arriving at
Ogden minus his trunk, hat, etc.
One night at the junction was
sufficient for him, and westward
he went. On the road he met
with a "greeny" from the .cow
countries, who wanted the young
man to go to his place to work
an offer which was thankfully ac
cepted. Hardly had he found
his new acquaintance when a
third party commenced manipu
lating some cards., .He was sur
rounded by a crowd, among them
our young man, who took a great
interest in the game; in fact, so
great was his interest that he
was minus about $230,all he had,
in trying to catch the deuce of
hearts, which, with two other
cards, the dealer was carelessly
throwing around on a blanket.
He thinks he has seen enough ef
the West, and arrived hero yes
terday morning on his road to
Pioche, intending to go to the
Sau Juna mines.
A WOMAN SUDE FOR BREACH OF
papers are on file in the Superior
Court of -Berkshire county Massa
chusetts, though a trial will hardly
be reached this session, in a some
what singular suit for breach of
promise. George F. Butler, of San
disfield, formerly of Lenox, is the
plaintiff, i-nd Mrs. Susan B. Rich
ards, formerly Miss. Susan B. Chad
wick, is the defendant. The dam
ages claimed are $10,000. Mr. But
ler alleges that he and Miss Ghad
wick mutually agreed 'to'marrr each
other, and he has always been ready
to marry her, but she refuses to per
form her promise, and has married
anotherman. The Herald gives
the following sketch of the case:
'It seems that a dozen years ago

the plaintiff's motber.who was then
entertaining guests at the "Allen
Comstock Farm." In this quiet
and romantic place the acquaint
ance was formed between the par
ties, and they were companions to
and from church, where a revival
was in progress in which she was
much interested, being a quiet and
exemplary young lady. The ac
quaintance was renewed on succeea
ing seasons , as the Chad wicks yisi
ted the town. and was kept up when
they occupied that delightful villa
of Fanny Kemble's. Butler was an
intelligent, interesting and well con
ducted companion, and they both
enjoyed the friendship that grew
up between thera in those long,
sweet summers. She was a most
estimable young woman, holding a
place in the best social circles every
where, possessed of large wealth,
and, of course, well beloved by her
mother. The latter seems to have
a higher ambition for her daughter
than a union with a Lenox farmer's
son, and whatever intimacy sprung
up between them that was warmer
than the merest friendship, she
frowned upon. It is a good while
since they made Lenox their .sum
mer residence, and liutler has wait
ed faithfally and patiently to claim
his promised bride. Bat she was
not so steadfast, and wedded Mr.
Richards, a lawyer, who was in
town last week to attend to his
wife'3 interest in the case."

"When Mr. Sumner first came un-l
der mv care, he was suffering from
a derangement of some obers oi tue
nerves. As you all Know, ne naa
received a blow upon the head.
His spine as he was sitting was
bent in two places. His bent spine
had produced the effects of a sprain
and when 1 saw him in Paris he had
recovered altosether from the ef
fects of the blow. He had then two
troubles. One was that he could
not make use of his braia at all.
He could not read a- newspapet or
write a letter. He was in a fearful
state. It seemed to him as if his
head would .explode as: if there
was some great force in.it pushing
the parts away irom eaca other.
.Ineed, bis emQtions were fearful to
me. Often in conversation it any-.
thing was said that called for any
degree ot deep thought, ne sunerea
intensely immediately, so that we
had to be extremely careful of him
"He had another trouble of the same
nature as regards external appearances
but occupying another portion of the
spine, and causing other symptoms.
It was a sprain at the level of the last
dorsal vertebrate. Tne irritation mere
was intense, and any motitn there was
extremely hard. When he walked he
had to push forward his right foot, and
then his left, holding on all the while
to his back with both bands to relieve
the pain. It had been thought that he
was paralyzed as to his lower limbs; it
had been tnougnt mat ne naa a disease
of the brain, and that was regarded as
beinsr the cause of paralysis of the
lowerlimbs. Fortunately the discov
ery made with regard to the yaser-mot-or
nerves led me at once to. And that he
bad no disease of the brain, and no par
alysis. He bad only an irritation of the
vosomotor nerves, at their exit 'from
"When I asked him if he was con
scious of any weakness, in his .limbs, he
said: "Certainly not; I only cannot
walk on account of the pain. What
was to be done then was to apply coiin
tcr- irritation on these two sprains ;
the only point' to which he led me to
speak of this. I. told him the best plan
of treatment would consist in the ap

degree whatever of greater ameliora

then I shall not take it." I didn't
have the courage to deceive him.

he didn't take chloroform, so l naa to
submit him to Martyrdom of , the great

medical practice, and burned him. I
thuoght after the torture the first time
he would use chloroform, but for five
times after in accordence with his own
determination, the operation was per
formed without it. I never saw a pa

a thing. The only explanation for
his conduct was mis :

mentioned it on this account only to
show what kind of a man he "was.

Experiences of Dr. Brown-Sequard. Threatening of Storm in Germany.
It was a favorite theory of Heinrlcb
Heine in conversation, and Is to be
found recorded in his Itelsebilder, 'that
whenever his countrymen did get up a
revolution, it would throw that of
France completely in the shade in
sivecping, violent, bloody, and effective
results. Emlllo Castelar, In his late
work nn Republicanism ln'Europe, lays
down the same doctrine, and supports
it at some length, it is sustained by
the prevailing idea of the German char

tum directly proportioned to inertia;
and sustained, also, by tho unmistaka
ble record of history.. Boms dominated
Germany under the first Cxsar, but the
real Strength of the people, slowly
gathering volume, burst finally upon
Augustus, and the mournful "Varus,
varus, what has; tuou uone with my
legions?" is evidence. of the suddenness

than anv of her sister nations after tho
dark night of the middle ages; but
woke, when she woke, with a mighty
rush that brought us printing, powder,!
and clock-work. Her literature slept
still longer it is now the youngest of
civilized races and yet Its awakening
rush was so rapid that Carlyle's "all
good books are written in German" has
almost as much truth as epigram. In
military science, in national power, in

and medicine, the unvarying course of

vehement argument against the militia
system was not without good reason, in
the present state of affairs. "There Is

How Snow Blockades are Broken on
the Central Pacific Railroad.
Once in a while, when the storm
would lighten up, we would catch a
zllmose of the great snow-plow, with
its six engines, around some bend, driv
ing Into tne artits witu a lorce mat ic
would seem wouia move tne woria.
These snow-plows are a curiosity, both
in their construction ana tne manner
in which they do their work. They are
immense structures I say structures,
for they are as big as a two-story bouse
and weish from 45,000 to 53,000 pounds.
In front they are shaped like the iron
plow of an iron-clad frigate, only the
sharp, vertical portion of this prow
changes into a flat surface where it ap
proaches the ground. Attached to this
fiat or Horizontal prow is wuat is cauea
an "apron." This apron is attached to
the prow by means of binges. It lifts'
up and lets down directly on the track
at pleasure, anawnen aowmcis neiu
there Dy largo stcei springs, nnen in
motion this apron slides right on the
rails, pressing hard on them, bat from
the rounded surface which It presents
to them it glides over the joints and
anv other little irregularities with ease.
The' long prow is pushed under the"
snow, the apron scraping, it clear irom
the rails, and lifting it up bodily it
meets the vertical section of the plow
which divides It, and hurls it off on
either side. When running at a high
rate of speed, as is often. the case, these
plows sometimes hurl the.snow into the
air fifty leet, ami plunge it in nuge
masses into the deep chasms and ca
nons, some such scenes at tnis was
presented the other nieht when Mr.
Fillmore the Division Superintendent,
brought the east-ward bound express
train throush with eleven engines.
The scene was one of the wildest and
irrandest that has ever been witnessed
on this road. It had beep storming all
uay ana nigt, ana ail tne next aay, ana
the snow had fallen and drifted some
places ten and fifteen feet in depth
The train started, out from Colfax with
three engines, but at Alta it took a
fourth. A snow-plow with seven heavy
flfty-live-ton engines went on aneaa to
clear the way. but at Blue Canon the
plow stuck in a huge drift, and the
whole force of seven engines could not
budge It an inch ahead. After shovel
ins; awhile the express train and the
snow train were coHpled together,
making a team of eleven engines, a
snow-nlow and six cars. Such "a sight
was never seen. Tho long chain of
puffing monsters backed clown lor a
mile or two, and then, taking a fresh
start, came at the drift at the rate of
forty miles an hour, tuo oniy wonaer
is that the plow was not crashed into
sawdust. It not only stood this enor
mous strain, but it kept to the track
and cut an eleven-foot passage In the
drift'with the precision of a surgeon's
knife. With the power eo increased,
the plow cut .its way through to Emi
grant Gap. At one point near there
the spectacle was magmncenc. un a
sharp curve on a steep embankment the
snow had been piled up to the very
height ot tne smoKe-stacKS oi tne cn
sines for a distance of one thousand
yards; The curve was so situated that
it was in full view of the station at the

the. moon shone brightly on the snow.
In the distance, slowly forging ahead,
were the eleven black and besrrimmed
leviathans, while in front of them was
the great plow throwing up snow in
huge masses like ocean billows, and
rolling it' down the mountain sides
thousands' of feet into' the yawning
chasms' below. The smoke and fire
from eleven funnels, the tops ot .which
could just be seen above the drifts, the
horrible noise and din of the puffing
steam, and the great glaziers being
thrown nigu in tne air ana tumbling
down tne mountain siae,- an lurntsnea
a scene which those who have ,nt wit
nessed it can never appreciate.

ahead of the others', walking along,
when all of a sudden a snow-slide from
the mountain's came rushing down and
completely buried up' six men and three

taking a shovel from his wagon, which
he happened to have along, hastened to
the assistance or the unrortunate men.
Mr. Epperson and the boy first released
the three men who were only partially
covered, and then went to work with a
will to dig out the others. All were
safely rescued from perilous positions,

commencement of disease. "Blood is the life
of the flesh." Can we expect to enjoy good
health, when bad or corrupt humors circulate
with the blood, causing pain and disease; and
these humors being deposited throughout tho
entire body, produce pimples, eruptions, ul
cers, indigestion, costlreness, headache, neu
ralgia, rheumatism, and numerous other com
plaints. So disease can be in the body with
out first being generated in the blood; and no
disease can possibly be in the body, if the blood
