A DEFUNCT SCHEME.
Tlio Mcxfcnn Drainage Company
Comes to Griof A Nclicnic Which
' Would lluvc Nutted Colonel Nellcrn.
Washington, Juno 8. Tlio
fiom the City of Moxlco that the
Mexicnn'Govornnicnt Las canceled tlio contract
for draining tlio Valley and City of
Mexico had with the Washington Company,
whoso figure-head was Commissioner
docs not creato much surpriso hero.
rfho fact is, the company and its big con-tract
wcro largely on papor. A Mexican
by tlio namo of Mcxia came hero from
Mexico some time since, holding the grant
and contract of tho Moxican Government
for this drainage scheme By it a certain
amount of drainage was to bo done, and
for that work tho Mexican Government
was to pay 25,000 per month until tho sum
of $9,000,000 was paid, and also to glvo a
portion of tho land roclaimcd.
Diaz was to have an interest in the
contract, but his namo was kept in tho
background, at his own request. Loring
and Senator Call and Senator Jonas and a
lot more thought they Baw a bonanza in it,
and, thdugh they didn't just have the
ready cash to tacklo a $9,000,000 job, thov
set to work to build up a company
around Mexico's old grant and
contract, taking him in fjr a
eharo of tho profits. Tlicy thought,
as the story goes here, and it comes from
good sources, that with tlio company organ-'
ized thoy Would be able to find sonio capitalist
who would put up tho millions to do
tho work, Senator Sabin, of Minnesota,
was their objective point. Ho hod nionoj',
millions, and he was called on. lie looked
into tho mattor, but when he arrived at
the portion of tho contract that gavo the
Mexican Government thirty years in
which to pay for tho work, and rejected
upon tho mutability of tho Mexican governments,-
ho mildly suggested that ho
would liko to seo that part of tho
contract changed, so that ho could get
his , pay as soon as tho work
was done. Tho contract also provided for
7 tbd jdeposit of a forfeiture of 5200,000 at
' the 5Monto do Pied, In the City of Mexico,
an institution something similar in its relations
to tho Government of Mexico as tho
Bank of England in its relation to tho
British Government. This clause did not,
either, exactly suit, as revolutions are
; rather frcquoat occurrences down in that
'country, arid 'it was proposed that tho
bo mado in a New York bank instead,
well, 'to make a' long story short, tho present
Mexican administration, which docs
not liko Diaz any too well anyway, saw in
these .requirements a chance to cancel tho
' obligation, and it canceled them.
Arrcut or n Jinn Who linn Defrauded
Buffalo, June 3. Eli Myorson, who has
extensively victimized tho dramatio profession
cast of tho Rocky Mountains for
the last few years, has been arrested
here. Ho owed a board bill of $12 at
tho Tifft House, and, meeting Farron, tho
comedian, he represented himself as a
cousin of S. F. Nixon, manager of Chestnut
Street Tli eater, at Philadelphia,
and endeavored to borrow that amount
of him. Fat rou was on tho point of
paying tho bill, when ho thought it wise to
tirst telegraph to Mr. Nixon. The latter
replied: " Myorson in a beat; do not pay
one cent for him.' Myerson was thou arrested.
He is tho son of well-to-do people in
Fort Wayne, Ind., and was a schoolmate of
S. F. Nixon, who also came from Fort
Wayne. Although his brothers aro in
good circumstuuees, Eli has gone
rapidly to ruin. Ho called on
Mr. Nixon last Winter and borrowed
some money by telling a pitiful title
of want and mislortuno. Ho subsequently
borrowed five dollars, which ho said he
needed in order to got a money order. Altogether
he defrauded Mr. Nixon out of
about $200. A short time ago he met
Charles Frohman, manager of the traveling
companies of tho Madison . Square
Theatre, at a hotel in Chicago. He
told him that ho was a
law of Mr. Nixon. Ho wanted to borrow
$25, as ho did not wish to troublo Mr.
Nixon by telegraphing to him. Mr. Frohman
asked him why he wanted to troublo
. a stranger, and said he would telegraph to
Mr. Nixon, Myerson then left. Ho has
defrauded many other theatrical people.

No other complaints are so insidious in their attack
nsthoso affecting tho throat and lungs : nono
so trifled with by tho majority of sufferers. Tho
ordinary cough or cold, resulting perhaps from a
trifling or unconscious exposure, is often but tho
beginning of a fatal sickness. Aysu's CiiEimr
Pectoual has well proven Its elflcacy In a forty
years' fight with throat and lung diseases, and
should be taken in all cases without delay.
A Terrible Cough Cured.
" In 1857 1 took a severe cold, which affected my
lungs. I bad a terrible cough, and passed night
after night without sloop. Tho doctors gavo mo
up. I tried Ayeh's Ciieiuiy I'ectojial, which
relieved my lungs, induced sleep, and atforded me
the rest necessary for the recovery of my strength.
By the continued use of the PKcronAL a permanent
cure was eifectod. I am now ft! years old,
hale and hearty, and am satisfied your Cheiuiy
Pectoual saved mo. Houace FAiitunoTUEit."

Croup. A Mother's Tribute.
"While In the country last winter my llttlo
boy, three years old, was taken ill with croup; it
seemed as if ho would die from strangulation.
One of tho family suggested the use of Aykk's
CiiEitnv Pectoual, a bottlo of which was always
kept In the house. This was tried in small
and f requont doses, and to our delight in less than
half an hour the little patient was breathing easily.
Tho doctor said that tho CiiEititY Pectoual
had saved my darling's life. Can you wonder at
our gratitude ? Sincerely yours,
Mns. Emma Gedjjey."

Palestine, Texas, April 22, 1882.
No case of an affoctlon of the throat or lungs
exists which cannot be greatly relieved by the use
of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, and It will always
cure when the diseaso is not already beyond tho
control of medicine.
