A correspondent of the Chicago 7'imts,
giving an account of flic transfusion of
blood to the veins of Gen. Frank I'. Illair,
relates a singular Incident. Mood vn
taken from the veins of a gentleman and
transferred to those of the General, when
he manifested all the symptoms of Intox
ication. Investigation showed that
the gentleman who had furnished
the blood, had been spreelng the day
before, and the physician concluded
that alcohol had been Injected- with
his blood Into General Blair,
who had thus been affected In the man
ner stated. It was not the General who
was drunk. It was the blood-fiinil'licr,
who was drunk by proxy.
Mrs. Oates, who lias, been traveling
West at thu head ol an KuglUli opera
boufl'e company, and making a large
amount of money, hns quarrelled and
parted with her husband, Tracy IV. Ti

Oatcs was a school grl In Xa-hvlllc,
whence she cloped with James A. Oates,
an actor. It was a happy marriage, the
w:fe going on the sUige and proving
successful through being an excellent
singer. In 1S71 the husband
died, 'after exacting a tolemn prom
ise from Titus, who was the treasurer of
a Chicago theatre, to care for his widow.
Titus kept the pledge by marrying Mrs.
Ostes, and has since acted as her man
ager in the theatrical business. The com
pany lately began a season in San Fran
cisco, where the receipts were enormous.
Mrs. Oates has a mother-ludaw, who
travels with hcr,and who at thU point con
vinced her that her husband was not fair

Incited, the uclress consulted a lawyer,
enjoined the treasurer to hand over the

The Ottawa Free Trader says :
"Vhn the Hon. S. M. Culloin comes
tx-iorc the people In 187(1 as the Kepubli
can candidate for governor of Illinois
(and It will be no fault of his if he don't),
one of the knotty questions he w ill tlud
poked at him at every corner will be.
How did you come, as ?jeaker, to sign
the pay-roll of the twenty-eighth general
assembly, when that pay-roll enabled the
clerk to draw from thu .State treasury
J9.727 for two hundred and four dav'
services which you knew he never would
or could perform?' And the further ques
tion will be pressed, 'How much was vour
share of that steal?'"
Before wc discuss this paragraph wc
wish to tell an anecdote.
When Hon. W. It. Morrison called by
his friends and a good many other peo
ple Hill Morrison, Iwsause ho Is a irood
fellow was In the upper part of Alexan

mands ; In fact, would give the right of
w ay at, no sum oi money MorrUoil could
venturto otter him. Morrison, who Is
wen Known as one of the most net-feet
masters of the art of persuasion, used his
best powers on the Incorrigible old farm-
er, but to no purpose. He offered him
Anally six hundred dollars, twice as much
as the right was worth, but without unv
other result than a refusal on the pai t of
tnc om mau to ueai. At last, Morrison
concluded that the fanner, knowing him
to be a railroad lawyer, suspected his
honesty. Ho therefore resorted to a
stratagem to overcome the old man's prej
udices. In a week or two after, ho sent
to the old man another old man, wearing
a ahlrt not overclean, rough and as lj as
old Joe Ugtock thought ho was. This
old man turned n and helped the old far
mer to make tUe worm of a fence, made
himself rery agrble for a few hours,
nd at but bought u,0 right of way tor
three hundred dolUn.
Hot loo after, MorrUou met the old
fcraar, tad said to him s
'Yob refused to sell to in t,,,- llUn.

"Well, you see he looked 111.0 u fhhr

"Hut, the fact U, that fellow Is it regu

Now It may be right to ay of lion.
ShelbvM. Cullom that he helped Pan.

but with Ihll Morrl-on's old tanner wu
are Inclined to give him a hearing on the
ground that hu look-, and talks like
"fahr" man. and It Is unfair In polities
as well ns in oilier nfl'jli-.-j to i-miili'inn a
man oil' hand without a trial.
What aro the fact.
The Iloue of the Twenty-eight Gene
ral As-einbly pacd a resolution autlior
i7lng the Clerk, Mr. Dan. Shepherd, to
remain after the adjournment or the
IIou-c sixty days we make the state
ment from memory for the purpoi-eiof
getting lilt paM-r into order, and until
tiie Journals had hei-n publl-hed so that
to avoid mistakes and trouble, he iiuht
help the printer by reading proof,Ae. The
resolution was oll'ered by a Democrat,
and probably received tlie iinaitlaioits
vote ol the lloue. There wu not a
member whojlid not lielievo tliat the
re-olution wa Intended to give tlte Cier!:
-Ixty day1 extra pay for siMj days
extra labor; but it operated to
give hint pat' for oery day of the
year. When the sixty days had expired,
the Journals had not heeipubllshed, and
for some cause, mysterious or otherwise,
they wen; not published until the whole
of tlie t ear had pased away. The res
olution, which thu shrewd but evidently
not scrupulous Mr. Shepherd had pre
pared himself, directed that he should be
paid at the rate of $0 per day, Sundays
included, until the Jouualshad been pub
lished. Speaker Culloin signed the pay
roll, under this resolution, and Mr. Shep
herd drew out of tlie treasury a large
sum of money lor which he had not la
bored a moment. It is now claimed that.
Mr. Ciillom should not have signed
the pay roll, and tliiu have pre
vented Mr. Shepherd from consummat
ing his little scheme of meanness; but
thl-just? lias tlie Speaker a right to de
termine that this or that employe, of the
llou-e has nut curiicd li money tho
llousu has voted to him? If w, lie
.vould be compelled to make lnve-liga
tlon before .sI'Tiilii"- tin? i:iv roll, lie could
not tin this, ami If ho ttero dlM)o-ed to
thu lloii-e would s,.it the
attempt and remind him tltat it
was ids duty to obey the orders of the
body over which lie had been called to
in this view of the matter we cannot
understand why Mr. Culloin should be
condemned and called a thief becau-e
he signed the pay roll, and
.Mr. Shepherd managed to gather into his
gaping pocket a few unearned dollars of
tlie people's money. Hut JSndical poli
ticians, and for that matter Democratic
ones too, art; very weak ; and It may be
that Mr. Culloin was privy to the dis
honest scheme of .Mr. Shepherd, and It
mavbethathe actually compelled the
printer to delay the publication ol the
Journals, s0 that Shepherd might put
money into his purse; and It maybe that
he shared tlie swag. If the-e may be
arc facts, then Culloin ought to be pil
loried with Shepherd ; but thus far In the
case, no evidence lias been oiiereu to con
vince us that they are tacts, and upon the
bare fact that ho signed the payroll made
out in strict accordance with a re-olutlon
of the JIoue. we cannot fouud a vordht
of guilty. Wc admit that a cloud has
been cast upon his character as a "fahr"
man, by the suspicion that he knew and
was a party to shepherd' "little game,"
but there Is a reasonable doubt of his
guilt, and we cannot therefore Join In tlie
cry that has been ral-cd against him.

Gen. Frank Hlalr, while In the Senate,
began to fail in health, and during tlie
two year Just past, has been almo-t as
helpless as a chlhl. Ills brain was af
fected and his nervous power completely
prostrated, the re-ult of orer-tnciitnl ex

bacco and other stimulants. "Tlie dls-

wasting away of the Intellect, and the

I believe tiie power of our order is not

-troug enough to settle dilllculties
which battle statesmen, and to bind rulers
ami people firmly together; next to thu
church, "the pillar and ground of the
