SuieiiT of a Brilliant Lawyer anj
Peculiar PeuthI.etter In Which He Doc
.Not Tell the I'HUte o Ilia IUh Act.
Hon. J. M. Binekley, a prominent lawyer
of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, lately committed
suicide. He was living separated from his
w ife und w as the father of four children,
now living at Knoxville, Tennessee. The
following is an extract from a letter written
by the deceased to a friend, a short time
before his death :
If their father had been exceptionally in
domitable under trial, the recnirnieil fact
would be a great encouragement to my lit
tle linys; therefore, if my end shall seem to
oliM iire it, but not in any event otherwise,
then disclose, this statement, viz:
Longevity I inherit, und. thnmh tradi
tions exceptionally remote on ImiiIi .sides, no
disease, mental orlmdily. I Mill but just
matured, without bunkniptcy, without a
trray liair, an unstrung nerve, a tliseae, a
liatl habit, a corruit scent, or a stain mi my
poor name. I am not broken down as
might lie guessed at a distance. My busi
ness condition, of late year no often des
perate, is now tolerable, and my ulterior
prospects giMal. My plans are workingwell.
I never in my life saw an hour of tottering
reason, faltering will, or until now, eclipsed
Iiojm'. My lot denied me cheerfulness, but
could not canker me. Yet. w ith competen
cy and jK-rsistcucy distinctly reinforced
by trial and experience, I am aluiut
to lay tlown my a.-hes. Why .'
I cannot t-.dl. Not Iiecause I do not know,
but language does not grow for that kind
of truth which is stranger than fiction, and
let no jH-rson inquire further who would
not rifle a frank man's grave. There is a
sterner tragedy than ever bk. There is a
deeper Verity than eversiwike. I lisiked uj
at noon and the un fell from the r-ky. I
have since not Im-cii rasli. I mil slain by
tlie invincibility of deceit. My motives nr -quite
extiiii t. For months past I have b -en
but trying t" prevent the collaiis nf a sud
denly ruptured balloon. I do not kill but
bury niyself. I am a mill whose stream
has heen diverted a clock whose Weights
have been taken out. At best, I am sentenced
for life to the basement of my constitution,
or else to the inaccessible attic. Neither
benefits mv little Ihivs. whose mansion I am.
For their giMid exclusively, solely for their
gixid I go. If I In-longed to myself, I
would have powerful motives to live.
If my passions were in control, no doubt
my love of life would hold its own with
the rest. I am not now suiFcring ninth, I
am simply rational; I judge that I ought to
disappear, though only Gtsl knows I am as
letent as an egg, My intellectual life has
always npH'aretl to others incoherent. To
me. it always scenic 1 to have an integrity
of stages, tending toward a useful, symme
trical outcome: through suil'ering. toil, and
friction .should my strength bold nut. Ob
serving that varied extreme ami prolonged
trials had rather strengthened inc. and that
I had a growing facility for organizing my
deeper thoughts. I came latterly to think
I was approaching a time when I could di
gest the memoranda of many yc:rs into k
durable work, but a thunderbolt rifted m.
It is now a cor.sohitkn to reflect that, aft r
all, this may have been a inert' conceit,
though it grew with time.
From resources of my own, I provide for
all debts, legal or honorary, to the hist cent.
I do most heartily forgive all who have ever
injured me. But injuries to my children
is ind mine to forgive; yet give my love to
all men, for so I feel.

Domoorrttki View of the I'ropoMexl
Wasiiisotox, 3Iay 10. There in much
speculation to-night over th probable ac
tion in thti liouso with reference to the bill
rcivcaling the bankrupt act. It is the gen
eral opinion that the friends of the bill
will urge a concurrence in the senate
amendment, for the mike of securing the
adoption of thu repeal during the present
session, but there are many who ladicve that
the house will insist upon the bill going In
to operation immediately on its passage, in
which cane a long discussion may ensue,
ami jsissibly the bill may not pas after all.
Th latter belief, however, in shared by only

The mcmbcra of the joint Democratic
caucus committee, together with the Demo

mittee and other prominent Democratic rep
resentatives, including Springer, Finlcy ami
Williams, of Michigan, who have had in
immediate charge the subject of the alleg
ed Florida presidential frauds, after a con
sultation with SK'aker Randall to day,
reached the conclusion that an investigation
of the mutters connected with the ubject is
not a question of privilege, nnd that there
fore nothing can be done except in
the regular order of business. Con
sequently it was determined that
the proposition for an investigation should
come from the judiciary committee, when
it shall again lie railed for resirts, for ac
tion by the house. The committee will
then ask for authority to investigate all the
facts in relation to the last election of
members of congress anil of presidential
electors in Florida, with a view of ascer
taining whether the statements of McLin,
ami others are true, Tin? investigation is
to be confined to these points only ami

EFFECT OF PERFUME ON" HEALTH.
An Italian professor has made some very
agr ible medical researches, resulting in
the discovery that vegetable (leifuim'S exer
cise a positively healthful influence on the
atmosphere, converting its oxygeu into
ozone, nnd thus increasing its oxydi.ing
influence. The essences found to develop
the largest quantity of ozone are those of
eheny, laurel, clover, lavender, mint, junip
er, lemon, fennel and Wrgumont; those that
give it in smaller quantity are anise, nut
meg ami thyme. The flowers of the narcis
sus, hyacinth, mignonette, heliotrope ami
lily of the valley, develop ozone in closed
vessels. Flowers destitute of perfume do
not develop it, nnd those which have but
slight perfume develop it ill small quanti
ties only. Reasoning fnuii these facts, the
professor recommends the cultivation of
flowers in mnrshv districts, tint 1 in all places
infested with animal exhalations, on account
of the oxytliing influence of ozone, The
inhabitants of such regions should, he says,
surround their houses with beds of the
most odorous flowers.

USES OF THE PHONOGRAPH.
Professor Edison thus enumerates uV
possible use of the phonograph
1. For dictating it will take the placo of
shorthand reporters, h thus : A man wln
has many letter to write will talk them t
the phonograph, and send the sheet directly
to his correMndcnt8. who will lay them o
the phonograph and hear what they have tie
st.y. Such letters as go to people who hav?
no phonograph will be copied from tlur
machine by the otHce-lioy.
2. For reading, A first das elocution
ist will read one of Dickens' novel into the?
phonograph. It can all 1 printed on a
sheet 10 inches square, ami these can be
multiplied by the million copies by a chea
process of elcctrotyping. These shevts will
lie sold for. lay, 23 cents. A man is tired
und his wife's eyes are failing, and so tJief
sit around a table ami hear the telephone
read from this sheet the whole novel with
all the expression of a first-class reader.
See? A company for printing these is.
already organized in New York.
8. It w ill sing in the very voice of Patti
and Kellogg, so that every family can liave
an opera any evening.
4. It may Imi used as a musical enrnpnttcr.
When singing some favorites airs backward
it hits some lovely airs, ami I lieliere a
musician could get one valuable jsipular
melody every day by experimenting in that
5. It may lie used to read to inmate of
blind asylums or to the ignorant who have
never learned to read.
0. It may be used to teach languages, and
I have already sold the right to use it t
teach children the alphaliet. Suppose Stan
