before the public the finer
qualities in suits and separate
garments than are usually
found among ordinary deal

Lieutenant-Governor Kennedy and Sen

' The loss of these senators leaves the repub-

of IS, as there art in all 37 senators. But
the worst coinei after this week. Senator
Ely has made arrangements to leave next
Saturday witli his family fpr Cali
fornia and insists that lie cannot
break the engagement made. This will
leave the senate afier this week standing
eighteen republicans and sixteen democrats;
any republican can tie the vote, but it re-
ijulrcs nineteen votes to pass a bill or to do
any tiling, even to constitute a quorum.
Last winter the democratic majority ran
away from the republ.cau minority, ami it
looks now like a republican majority was to

A NARROW ESCAPE.
A Cli'l.t HwnllavrsnTrinl Until of Patent
Medic Ine with Kxrlting f,n tM.
Probably nearly every reader of this pa
per received yesterday a small vial of pat
ent medicine called "Kreak," which was
being thrown around the city In quantities
by representatives of the company manu
facturing It. It was represented on the
wrapier as being a specific for rheumatism
and neuralgia, designed entirely, however,
for external application. The trial bottles
were about the size of one's little finger and
contained, perhaps, a tablespoonful of the
liquid. It was extremely powerful, and Its
odor showed that it contained such ingre
dients as ether anil jierhaps a local an.es
Uietie of some character.
Among those who received a sample bot
tle of the stuff was Slgnor Vincent Bigio,
the well-known harp player, who lives at
OS Fi-her streeL lie carried It hoim
wrapped in the little circular that accompa
nles it and set It on the table In the kitchen.
In the afternoon his tliree-y ear-old son.
Vincent, a little lad with eyes as black a
night and dark Italian curly hair, cut his
finger while playing around on the floor and
ru.lieil out into the kitchen. Seeing the
bottle on the table, he concluded with In
fantile logic that being sick he ought to
take some medicine. He accordingly
pulled the cork out of the bottle and drank
MOST OF ITS FIEItV COXTFVTS.
The effect was Instantaneous. He ran Into
the room to his mother, choking and gasp
iii in the most terrifying fashion, and
what was more alarming still, with his fact
covered with blood from his cut hand. The
child's actions anil appearance almost
frightened Sirs. Klgio to death, but seeing
the almost emptied bottle, she at once un
derstood the situation. A lady physician,
who is at present the guest of the family of
Prof. John Keislng, next door, was sum
moned, and administered a heavy dose of
lobelia as an emetic, which had the effect of
cleaning out the stoma-h. Meanwhile
Mrs. Klgio hurried up town to a
druggist, ami showed him the small
quantity of the liquid left in the bottle. He
at once said that one of the ingredients
was oil of mustard and cautioned her
against using any mustard inwardly in
treating the child The child's promptJ
vomiting undoubtedly saved its life, or at
least avoided great suffering. It after
wards sank Into a sort of stupor, and was
quite III the rest of the day, but is all right
