THE (OMINO TEXAS CATTLE DRIVE.
Kansas City, March 17. The Commer
cial Indicator will publish to-morrow spec
ial reports from Texas in reference to the
coming drive of cattle from that state to
Kansas and other tates and territories north
which place it at 294,200, the number of
cattle eacli drover will drive being given
in detail. Of this number about 100,000
have been already disposed of, leaving
200,000 for the open market. The drive
will be principally of young cattle. Not
more than twenty per cent, will be beeves
There have been good rains in southwestern
Texas recently. The grass is growing very
fast, and the prospect for an early drive is
excellent. Cattle along the coast are win

Tilden himself is also called upon to pro

man telegraphed the assistant treasurer at
New York to-day to accept f 2,000,000
bonds offered to-day. The proposals to sell
bonds to the government aggregated 11,

The senate in executive session confirmed
the following nominations: U. S. attorneys:
Jas. B. Butler, Idaho territory; John C.
Patterson, Delaware. Collector of customs :
Stephen Moffitt, district of Champlaiu, N.
Y.; John L. Hayues, district of Brazos, De
Santiago, Texas; Wm. Whiting, agent for
Indians, Poncus agency. Postmasters:
John E. Bliss, Ottawa, Kansas; II. K. Mil
ward, Lexington, Ky. A large portion of
the time spent in executive session was de
voted to the ca.se of the Rev. Thos. J. Sim
mons, nominated as census supervisor for
the Fifth district of Georgia. The adverse
report of the senate committee was rend
aud discussed but no action taken.
The house committee on railways and
canals agreed to report favorably Mr. Up
son's bill to authorize the secretary of war
to contract with the Sun Anton in and Mex
ican Border Railway company for tho im
mediate construction of a railroad from
Sun Antoiiin to Laredo. The committee
amended the bid by limiting the bonds to
be issued to 12,000 per milo instead of
$13,000 as originally proposed.
A special meeting of tho house com
mittee on claims was held to-day to re
ceive the report of tho subcommittee upon
the claim of Gen, Sutter, first discoverer of
gold in California. Tho report furors an
appropriation of $30,000 to satisfy Gen.
Sutter's claim and was unanimously adopt
ed by the committee and ordered to be re
ported to the house.
Mr. Jones of Florida reported a bill
to-day ftom the senate comuiittco on public

"An Old Physician's Advice." Coughs
colds, asthma and other pulmonary affec
tions should be looked to and promptly
treated in time and thus all serious results
may be avoided, and for this purpose we
know of no better remedy than "Dr.
Swaync's Compound Syrup of Wild Cher- '
ry." The first dose gives relief, and it is
sure to cure the worst cold or cough in a
very short time. Try a 23 cent bottle and
be convinced, and you will thus avoid a
doctor's bill, and most likely a serious spell
of sickness. Price 23 cents and $1 per bot
tle, or six bottles $3. The large size is the
most economical. Prepared by Dr. Swayne
& Son, 330 North Sixth street, Philadel
phia. Sold by all prominent druggists.
The speculative mania is having a bad
effect upon the country. It is not only
drawing millions of dollars into unproduc
tive schemes, from which the money will
never be returned to its owners, but it is
putting up the prices of all sorts of merch
andise, so that this country is rapidly lie
coming the best to sell in and the worst to
buy in. The effect is seen in our foreign
commerce. Our imports are increasing
and our exports decreasing.
Mrs. Winslow's Soothino Syulp.
Rev. Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Bos
ton Christiifh Freeman; We would by no
means recommend any kind ot medicine
which we did not know to be good partic
ularly for infants. But of Mrs. Winslow's
Soothing Syrup we can speak from knowl
edge; in our own family it has proved a
blessing indeed, by giving tin infant
troubled with colic pains, quiet sleep, and
the parents unbroken rest at night. Most
parents can appreciate these blessings.
Here is an article which works to perfec
tion, and which is harmless; for the sleep
wl.ich it affords the infant is perfectly nat
ural, and the little cherub awakes as
"bright as a button.' And during the
process of teething, its value is incalcula
ble. We have frequently heard mothers
say that they would not be without it from
the birth of the child till it has finished
with the teething siege, on any considera
cents a bottle.

A Good Housewife. The good house
wife, when she is giving her hoitso its
spring renovating, shold bear in mind that
the dear inmates of her house are more
precious than many houses, und that their
system needs cleansing by purifying tho
blood, regulating tho stomach and bowels
to prevent and cure the diseases arising
from spring malaria and miasma, and she
must know that there is nothing that will
do it so perfectly and surely as Hop Bitters,
the purest und best of medicines. Concord
