History rf a Very Remarkable Case.
The following voluntary statement,
attested bv well-known citizens of
Arkansas, was recently received hy
reel. Banks attemoted tu anssninate the S. S. S. Com puny, the writer re-
Littleton hy shooting from a house
tour charges from shot gnus into Lit
tleton's hody, arms and legs. It seems
this was done without warning, and
Littleton, although armed, had no
chance to defend himself. After
emptying hoth his guns the second
into the pr.istrnle form of the wound
ul man Banks ran through an alley,
caught a huggy and drove rapidly to
the jail, where he gaVe himself up.
While we do hy no means endorse the
I'itter pevsonal method of Mr. Little
ton's journalism, yet we cannot too
strongly condemn ihe cowardly at
tempt at his assassination. If Banks
felt aggrieved and no dotiht hedid
he ought to have taken a more manly
method of oUaining satisfaction.
Thirty-six huckshot and hullets en
tered his hody, arms and legs. Hopes
were entertained until Tuesday eve
iiing that Mr. Littleton might recov
er, hut at that time inflammation set
in and he rapidly sank until 2.30
Wednesday morning, when he
breathed his last, lis wife, father,
brothers, and sister, and several
friends were with him until the end.
He was about twenty-nine years of
age, and was one of the most aggress
ive members of his party.. His last
letter to his paper says: "I do not be
lieve it possible to elect Hon. James
G. Blaine president of the Uuiled
States in 1888."
t Gen. Alger, of Detroit, deser7es a
higher and more durable monument
than any soldier of !he world. He
has just clothed hundreds of news
boys in that, city and surprised one
thousand destitute families with t
cord of wood or a ton of coal, togeth
er with a barrel of flour. If other
rich men would follow his example,
we would not hear so much of social
ism and anarchy.
. Rev. A. R. W infield, editor of the
Arkansas Methodist, died of pneu
moniaat his home in Little Rock last
Monday, He was sick only two days,
and was thought to lie improving un
til a short time before his death. He
was well known here, he having lec
tured and preached to our people.
President Cleveland and cabinet
and many other distinguished people
attended the,funeial of -Daniel Man
ning, ex-secretary of the treasury, in
Albany last Tuesday. Mr. Manning
was one of the atdest men of his gen
eration in some respects, and his death
is a loss to the country.
The Nashville American has settled
"Annie's" case satisfactorily and

emphasizes the almost miraculous
power of the Swift Specific in the re

Hereditary scrofula attacked me first

the various remedies which I could

a dozen of those terrible cancerous ul

in an almost hopeless condition,
and could not rise from mv
