Tabbing and Feathering a Minister.
Rev. Guiles G. Rhodes, a Methodist preach?
er, baa sworn out warrants ia Lepeer, Mich.,
for the arrest of Dr. Win. F. Harrison and
Dr. Wii-on, the latter a veterinary surgeon,
und for twenty-eight others whose names I
are not given, for grievous bodily assault* I
Mr. Rhodes says that a few days ago, while |
be was holding divine service at a private
bouse in Rich township, thirty men, dis
guised with false beards and blackened
faces, entered tho house of Harrison, and
Wilson, be says, ltd the party. Ilhodes
was seized and struck on tho head with a
club. He was then taken out, his clothes
removed and his body bedaubed with tar.
a 'outlier bed was then cut open and tho
feathers applied. lie was next ridden on a
rail am! terribly maltreated. They drugged
him, he claims, towards a mill pond on tho
farm and threatened to throw him in, but
desisted when he said he could not swim.
They, however, gave him a severe well
pumping, and then another coat oi :t;r and
n coat of fine grass, the feathers having giv?
en out. He was finally liberated more dead
than alive. Rhodes claims not to know the
motive of the party, but from another sourco
comes the statement that the preacher lias
given greal offense in the community by his
free love doctrines, which ho has mixed
with free Methodism. Rhodes is an old
man and a harmless looking creaiure. He
sayo that some of the party to the outrage
feel greatly mined up against him because
he has exposed the evil doings in the town?
ship. Harrison and Wilson havn been ar?
rested.
THE RACE NOT DjSGENBBATING. ?The com?
plaint about tho degeneracy of (he humun
raco is not new, but dates as f-ir back as the
time of Homer, at least, for the men of his
day were not like the heroes of whom .he
sang. It is not confirmed, but is contradict
ed by all tho tangible facts, and these aro
. not u few. Human remains that aro ex
Immed alter having reposed in the grave for
many centuries, as in tho catacombs of
I'ans, have nothing gigantic about them,
armor, the cuirasses and tho casques of
be ? arriors of the Middle Ages can be worn
by the modern soldiers, and many of the
knights' suits would bo too ^mall for tbo
curiassiers of the European armies, yet they
worn by the selected men, who were
Btter fed, stronger and more robust than
: be re;-t of the population. The bones of the
anoient Gauls, which are uncovered in the
excavations of tumuli, while they are of large
dimensions, are comparable with those of
te existing populations of many places in
Franco. The Egyptian mummies are the
remains of persons of small or medium
ature, as aro also the Peruvian and Mexi
in mummies, and the xnunimics snd bones
ad in the ancient monuments of lutlia
und Persia. And even the most ancient rel
13 we possess of individuals of the human
species, the bones of men who lived in the
tertiary period, an epoch the renioto anti?
quity of which Roes back for hundreds of
? enturies, do not show any important dif?
ferences in tho sizes of the primitive and of
the modern man.
The Hon. J. F. Cassanova,oi Philadelphia,
was sitting in his office reading, when ho
heard a sharp click, and felt something cu?
ter his right eye. On examination he found
itmtasniall scale of glass had burst from
' < eye-glasses. Going to a barber's shop
ho had a stream of water injected forcibly,
by tnoaus of a rubber tube, under the eyeiid.
with the effect of washing out the sliver of
glass, which was about the size and shape
of a shad's scale. No harm was done to
the eye whatever. A short time before the
accident the frame of the eyeglasses had
been tightened.
Apropos of tho weather, it is instructive
to know that there aro a':out 7,000,000 pores
in the human body, and that each pore is a
quarter ot an inch dci-p. If the pores were
hitched together in one siring they would
reach a distance of twenty eight miles.
Vv'hen you remember that twenty eight
miles of drainage is bringing its sewage to
the surface of the body, the necessity for
frequent baths this weather can be appre?
ciated. ?Norwich L'ttUclin.
II Astonished tlw Public.
. ear of tho resignation of Dr. Pierce as a
Congressman to devote himself solely to his
labors as a physician. It was because his
true constituents were tho sick and aillcted
everywhere. They will find Dr. Pierce's
''Golden Medical Discovery" a beneficent
use of his scientific knowledge in their be?
half. Consumption, bronchitis, cough, heart
disease, fever and ague, intermittent fever,
sy, neuralgia, coitre or thick nock, and
all diseases of the blood, are cured by this
world-renowned medicine. Its properties

A Safeguard Against Insects.?Many people
do not know how easily thoy can protoct them?
selves and their children against the bites of
guats and other insects. Weak carbolic acid
sponged on the skin and hair, and in some cases
the clothing, will drive away the whole tribo. A
great many children and not a few adults are
tormented throughout tho whole summer by mi?
nute enemies. We know porsons who are afraid
of picnics aud oven their own gardens on this ac?
count. Clothing is an imperfect protection, for
wo have seen a child whoso foot and ankle had
been stung through the stocking so seriously that
for days sho could net wear a leather shoe. All
this can be averted according to our oxporience,
and that, we believe, of mauy others, by carbolic
acid judiciously used. Tiie safest plan is to keep
a saturated solution of the acid. The solution
cannot contain moro than 6 or 7 per cont., and it
may bo added to water until the latter smells
strong. This may readily and with perfect safo
ty, be applied with a sponge. Wc havo no doubt
that horses and cattle could be protected in the
same way from the .'lies, which sometimes nearly
madden them, and it even seems possible that
that terrible scourge, tho African tsotso tly, might
be kept off in tho samo manner.?London Lancet.
Mayor and Cm Council Arrested.?Mayor
Sutton, nineteen Council tuen aud tho Street Com?
missioner of Wilkosbarro, Pa., wcro arrested yes?
terday morning on complaint of citizens residing
in tho 3d aud <>th wards for failing to keep the
Streets in those wards in order, and for allowing
Stagnant water to accumulate, from which foul
smells arise, dangerous to tho health of the com?
munity in that part of the city and harmful to
property interests. Considerable excitement was
manifested when the entire municipal body was
marched before Alderman Parsons and hold to
answer in $300 each. Tho Councilmon went bail
for one another, and tho Chief of Polico for the
Mayor and Street Commissioner.
