MONDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12.
A Man Choked to Death.?John Gielcz,
or Galov.itcb, a RnBsian-Pole, was choked
:o death in Baltimore yesterday by a large
i?-ca of corned beef whicb became lodged
ia bis throat. He formerly boarded at Ale
Kenna's,r.OD. East etreet, comer of Ensor.
Mr. McKenna stated that shortly alter five
o'clock yesterday afternoon Golowitch came
iiito his yard hurriedly through a side'alley,
went into a shed and had bardly entered
when he fell to the ground. He was picked
up and carried into the kitcheu, but ex?
pired before a physician could be sent for.
Dr. Alex. Hill, the coroner, was notified,
and, while examining the body, he discover?
ed that something which the man had
attempted to swallow bad stuck in his
throat. Dr. Hill succeeded in drawing out
a large piece of hard corned beef. The meat
was two and a-half inches long two inches
wide and nearly an inch thick. His body
was afterwards removed to the City
Hospital, where it was identified by some
friends.
Jacob L. Buzzard and others were en?
gaged in digging a well on the premises of
James Grant, not far from Bay City, Mich.
At the depth of three feet they came across
a large deposit of bones, whicb, from their
appearance, were evidently those of some
giant animal of the mastodon species. One
of the tuskB of thi3 animal was Fix feet in
length, and measured five ioces in diameter
at its base. A hip bone measured twelve
inches in diameter, and a lib " as found
seven and a half feet io length. The jaw of
the animal was also found, and measured
four and a half feet in lentrih.
Especially io Women.
"Sweet is revenge, especially to women,"
said the gifted, but naughty, Lord Byron.
Surely be was iu bad humor when he wrote
such words. But there are complaints that
only women sutler, that are carrying num?
bers of them down to early craves. There
i-j hope for those who suffer, no matter
how sorely, or severely, in Dr. R. V.
Pierce'8 "Favorite Prescription." Safe in
its action it is a blessiog, especially to women
and to men, too, for when womeu sutler the
household is askew.

The Gazette is now the oldest paper ic
the State, and with few exceptions the old
eat in the country, and its usefulness has
been demonstrated and appreciated durii g
the eigb ty-seven yeaes of its existence. Id
its columns has always been found a mirror
of passing events, and the. careful chr
cling of the history of what is going on in the
world has ever been its aim. It is always
welcomed in the household, while ic
counting room and workshop it bad becoi .
invaluable.
The Gazette has better facilities l?-r
tainiDg news thau any paper outside o
national capita!. .Situated an it is so c
to the great centre of news, it enjoy
too benefit of the Associated Pre
patches from every part of the world ; hi
its patrons can read from its columns in the
evening what has transpired that doj
every portion of our own domain us we!! as
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for the GAZETTE to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than the morning pa
pers.
Another feature that serves to make the
Gazette a great desideratum with mer
chants is its afternoon market reports from
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and olbei
centres.
The local department furnishes a full and
complete history of everything that occurs
n and near the city, and this feature will,
as ever, receive careful attention.
Correspondence from Washington, Rich
mond nDd every section of theState, is pub?
lished regularly, and all eventd of interest
occurring within the bounds of the Com?
monwealth aro to be found in the columns
of the Gazette.
The Gazette's circulation is tteadily io
creasing, especially among people who con?
sult its advertising columns before purchas?
ing. That this is self-evident may be infer?
red from the fact that a large country edi?
tion?nearly as large as the daily?is sent
all over this section ol country three times
a week, and is read by thousand*, most of
whom send here or to contiguous cities t>
make purchases.--The advantages of ad?
vertising in tbo Gazette are, therefore, ap
