W1inn L,ynanT Meets Death by Lumber Fall
i:g on Ilima-Noah King Seriously Hurt.
)n Wednesday afternoon several men
were engaged in storing grain in one of
W. II. Tracy's warehouses. There were
I,.ve men in the building,W. H. Tracy, Y.
K.. uniders, Noah King, Winn Lynam
and another man. King and Lynam were
working in the lower part of the building
storing away oats, when. without warn
ing. the rafters gave way precipitating a
iarge lot of lumber on the men below.
T'he unfortunate men were extracted as
:-.n as possible, Lynam being horribly
man gled, but still alive. King happened
ito be standing near an upright sack of
,rain, which saved him from the fate of
kis c(ompanion, although he was badly in

Mr. Jamie Rhodes, of Eufala, Ala., held
Ltcket No. 46,755, in the October drawing

he paid one dollar. It proved to be a
lucky ticket, for it drew the capital prize
of 3:0(),0), and entitled Mr. Rhodes to
`15,000. If the ticket had been a whole
one for which Mr. Rhodes had paid $20,

Reputation Gone, and Without a Country.
A Cleveland, Ohio, telegram, of the 10th
inst., says that Thomas Axworthy, de
faulting ceity treasurer of Cleveland, who
is now in Locdon, has made a proposition
to return $160,000 to the city, and in two
years to repay his bondsmen, if prosecu
tion is dropped and he is permitted to re
turn to America.
This shows what a priceless gift is
American citizenship. The man has
riches. Dropping the prosecution will
not restore his lost character; but what
bothers him seems to be the fact that he
cannot return to America. It is an awful
position for a man to be placed in. With
out a character; and, still worse without
a country. Here is a lesson for the pos
sessor of ill-gotten gains to study over.

New Idea: The crop on the Gilchrist
ranch this year yielded a handsome re
turn. The entire oat crop was threshed
out this week and the yield was 8,904
bushels. Some of the land yielded as
much as 120 bushels to the acre, so we
learn from Jas. R. Gilchrist.
Madisonian: In addition to the thor
oughbred stock brought from Kentucky,
as reported in the Madisonian several
weeks ago, Mr. C. X. Larabie has recently
purchased fifteen head of, fine native
trotters for his Ruby Stock farm. Twelve
are from the well known herd of W. H.
Raymond, and three were bought from O.
B. Barber. Mr. Larabie proposes to raise
the finest horses in the territory; and
when a man of his experience, judgment
and means returns from Kentucky to buy
Montana horses, it is time to stop talking
about imported stock as a recommenda
tion to purchasers and breeders. Mr, J.
C. Newbury has charge of the horses for
the winter, and is stabling them at his
farm on the Upper Ruby.

Harrison's Cromwellian Ancestry.
LONDON, December 10.-President-elect
Harrison has written the following letter
from Indianapolis to a correspondent in
Newcastle under the Tyne: "Dear Sir:
Your letter of the 10th of November at
hand. I never have been a studentof our
family history, and can only say in re
sponse to your inquiry that it has been
stated and accepted by some of my rela

ject, that our family had descended from
Gen. Thomas Harrison, an officer in Crom
well's army. I never, myself, examined
into the evidence. Yours truly,
A Cure for Diarrhoea,-Mr. J. A. Bur

arrhoea. For about six weeks he tried
four diffejant kinds of patent medicines,
but he finally got hold of a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar

cured them. and is confident it will cure
any case when the plainly printed direc

In Which the Admission of Several Territor
ries Were Considered----Remarks
By Toole and Voorhees.
WASHINGTON, December 11.-The first
caucus of the session was held by the
democratic members of the house this
evening. Springer stated the main ob
ject of the caucus was to permit the dem
ocrats to take some action lookiLg to the
admission of the territories. Cox favored
the admission of all the territories except
Utah and New Mexico. He said the dem
ocratic party might as well gain the good
will of the territories as their ill will.
The people of Dakota preferred division
on the forty-seventh parallel almost unan
imously, and he was of the opinion their
desires should be listened to. Washing
ton, Montana and Idaho should be given
enabling acts at once. The great territo
ry of Dakota should be divided and the
democrats should secure the prestige
which would certainly come to them from
the favorable action of their caucus.
They had lost Minnesota at the last elec
tion because they had tailed to admit Da
kota, which was on the same isothermal
line. McDonald offered the following
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
caucus that a day be fixed for some time
after the holidays for the consideration of
the territorial question in so far as it af
fects the admission of states, and that on
any bill reported, or to be reported, from
the committee on territories, there shall
be no limitation on amendments which
are germane and that in the order of pro
ceeding the first vote shall be on any bill
affecting the territory of Dakota or its di
vision, or any amendment thereto, and
that this caucus does not seek to bind
any member on a vote to be taken on any
Oates (Alabama) dissented from the
view advocated by Cox. He regarded the
question of the admission of the territo
ries as largely political, and believed the
interests of the democratic party should
be considered. He did not see how the
force of the argument that admitting the
territories at present would make them
democratic. If the people of the territo
ries had so little idea of democracy, they
should stay out until they learned better
the principles of the democratic party.
He ridiculed the idea that a republican
congress, with a majority of from one to
three in the house, would be allowed to
have its own way in regard to Ithe admis
sion of the territories. Let congress go
slowly. Colorado had been admitted by a
democratic congress and he saw nothing
democratic about it.
Biggs (Cal.) favored dividing Dakota
and the admission of Dakota. To sheol
with the policy of preventing a territory
being admitted in deference to the dic
tates of a political party.
Holman (Indiana) supported the omni
bus bill, and offered a resolution to that
Spinola (New York) said he would op
pose the admission of the territories in
every way he could, and in 1892, with a
staunch, sterling democrat at the head of
the democratic ticket, that party would
march on to victory. He didn't believe in
McAdoo (New Jersey) deprecated any
concessions to the republican party.
McDonald predicted if the democrats
did not admit Dakota it would be repub
lican for years. Let the democrats be
wise. The tariff had not beaten the dem
ocrats in the northwest, but political mis
takes, such as a refusal to admit Dakota,
had been responsible for the result.
Weaver (Iowa) favored the omnibus bill
and the admission of all the territories
Toole (Montana) spoke in favor of ad
mitting that territory, predicting that
were it done it would send two democrats
to the senate; otherwise the territory
would be republican for decades.
Bland (Missouri) said that in 1892 the
seat of war would not be in New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut, but in the
west. Let the democratic party follow
Horace Greeley's advice and go west and
grow up with the country.
Voorhees (Washington) attributed the
republican majority in that territory to
the failure of the democrats to pass an
enabling act for its admission.
Without taking any action the caucus
adjourned till Thursday evening,
Nearly all colds are slight, at first,
but their tendency is to so lower the sys

use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral would
guard against this danger.

A traveling man stopping at the Lee
house, Campbellsburg, Ind., on learning
that a lady in the village was suffering
terribly with cramp colic, gave the land
lady a bottle of medicine, which he had
with him and requested her to take it to
the sick woman. The medicine relieved
her promptly and she believes saved her
life. It was Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy, the promptest
and most reliable medicine in use for
bowel complaints.-Sold by M. A. Flana

HOW I SUFFERED
Seventeen years from a skin disease.
Could not walk or dress myself. A
mass of disease from head to foot.
Cured in eight weeks by the Cuticura
At the age of three months a rash ( hich after
wards proved to be eczema or salt rheum) made its
appearance on my face. A physician was called.
He said teething was the cause; he prescribed
some cooling medicine, but the sores spread to my
ears and head. Another M. D. was called. He
professed to know all about the case, called it
"Kings Evil," and prescribed gunpowder, brim
stone and lard mixed into a salve; but the disease
continued. 1hey could not (to anything with it.
Another prescribed borax, water, and flour; an
other linseed poultices. None of them did me any
good at all, but made me worse. The disease con
tinued unabated; it spread to my arms and legs,
till I was laid up entirely, and from continually
sitting on the floor on a pillow, my limbs contract
ed so that i lost all control of them, and was utter
lv helpless. My mother would have to lift me out
of and into bed. I could get around on my hands
and feet, but I could not get on my clothes at all,
and had to wear a sort of dressing gown. My hair
had all matted down or fallen out, and my head,
face and ears were one scab, and I had to have a
towel on my head all the time in summer to keep
the flies off. My parents consulted a prominent
physician and surgeon here in Chicago (the other
physicians were of Dundas and Hamilton, Canada)
He said he could do nothing for me. He wanted to
cut the sinews of my legs, so that I could walk:
but I would not let him, for if I did get better I
would have no control of them.
The disease continued in this manner until I was
seventeen years old, and one day in January, 1879,
I read an account in the Tribune of your CUTICURA
REMEDIES. It described my case so exactly that I
thought as a last resort, to give them a trial.
When I first applied them I was all raw and
bleeding, from scratching myself, but I went to
sleep almost immediately, something I had not
done for years, the effect was so soothing.
In about two weeks I could stand straight, but
not walk I was so weak, but my sores were nearly
well. As near as I can judge the CUTICURA REME
DIES cured me in about six to eight weeks, and up
to this date (i. e. from January, 1879 to January,
1885) I have not been sick in any way or have had
the least signs of the disease reappearing on me.
