A Frightful Affair.
-MRS. M.MTT, OF CAMDEN, Altk., DROWNS
FIVE OK HER ( till PIlEN IN A WELL.
Cam hen, Ark., April 11. A Mrs. M.
Nutt, residing a few miles northwest of
this city, in a fit of temporary insanity,
drowned five of her children in a well near
her residence. The eldest, 12 years of age,
was called up from th.i field, where he was
plowing, and seeing his mothcr'frenzied
condition, attempted to escape by running.
She pursued, caught him and knocked him
in the head, then threw him in the well,
where the four others hid preceded him.
Not sati-fied with her fiendish work she
then descended into the well, and finding
one of the children still clinging to its side
for support, she tore away its grasp, and he
too slumbered in death with the other un
fortunate brothers aud sisters. The young
est was a baby 11 mouths of age.
Currie's Identity Settled.
Little Rock, Ark., April 18. An ad
ministrator was appointed to day to take
charge of the effects of James M. Currie,
killed rececently in a saloon at Las Vegas,
N. M. It is understood that Currie left
property of considerable value in this city.
His identity was fully established, com
pletely refuting the charge that he aud
the murderer of the actor Porter were one
and the same person. Currie's friends
here denounce the attempt to confound
him with that party in unmeasured terms,
claiming that Porter's assasin is now under
indictment for murder in Texas and that
his frtends are endeavoring to create the
impression that he was slain in New Mex
ico, in order to keep him from tailing into
the hands of officers who are searching for
him, and to defeat the ends ot justice.
Poverty of the Blood.
If the blood be thin nnd watery the
whole system is impoverished. The flesh
is flabby, the muscles lack hardness, the
nerves are relaxed, the internal organs but
imperfectly perform their functions, the
bruin is inert, and, in short, the entire
body is only half alive. The stomach is
mainly responsible for this wretched con
dition of the human machine. Stimulate
and tone that organ with Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, ami a marked change for
the better will soon be apparent. The re
sult of improving the digestion with this
potent and genial tonic will be the conver
sion of the food into rich, pure blood, nnd
as the blood is the raw material from which
flesh, muscle, brain, hone and every mem
brane, tissue and ligament of the body nro
manufactured, all these components ot the
material frame will be gradually regene
rated and invigorated. This is sound
doctrine, nnd is sustained by the logic of
Given tip by Doctors.
"Is it possible that Mr. Godfrey is'up
mid at work, and cured by so simple a
"I assure you it is true that he is entirely
cured, and with nothing but Hop Bitters;
and only ten days ago his doctors gave him
up and said he must die!''
"H'ell-a-day 1 That is remarkable! I
will go this day and get somo for my poor
George I know hops arc good." Salem
There is no finer therapeutic agent than
electricity. Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, a
standard remedy for lameness, soreness,
bruises and abrasions of the skin, diseases
of tlio throat aud lungs, piles and kidney
troubles, contains it. Veterinary surgeons
also command it for horso and ctittlo dis
eases. Paul G. 8chuh, ngeut.
How a Constituent Sat Down on a Member
of the Legislature.
iMndt Free Pivhs.
Ho gave the Imekmen at the Union
depot a stand on", brushed llio boot
blacks right and hit, nnd shouldered
his ixty pounds of baggage and started
ii)i Jefl'e.iMin avuiiue iii oeuivh of a tav
ern. Hu was a right up and down
mail, nnd ho wanted lo strike a tavern
where they had an old fashioned boiled
"Just come In from Lansing," ho ob
served as ho fell in with a pedestrian.
"Did, eh? Been out to the Legisla
ture?" "You bet I have. I'm not a member,
but 1 have made things hum there, nil
the sii me."
"Have n bill?"
"Not exactly. I come down from
county to takn the kinks out of
our member.' Hi was sailing in with a
high head, and if I'd waited ten days
longer he'd have, been bossing tho
whole Slate. What d'ye think?"
"Ho wouldn't speak to nio when 1
first got there! Think of that! Up
homo there we rated him about No. -1,
und sent him down to Lansing more be
cause cone (f tin; re-', of lis could leave,
and he wanted to cut mo' eolder'n a
weiL'o! What do you think?"
"You bet! Hut I lowered his nose a
bit. We'd heard how he was prancing
around and pulling on airs and making
out that he run our county, and a few
of us got t-igriher and wrote him a let
ter. Jt didn't m iii to ill) an v good, and
so we got t-'gel her ngain and tln-y sunt
nie down to put on the currycomb."
"And you did?"
"Didn't I? He'd put in ubout n dozen
bills fill'eeting our county, and I mashed
all fiiit two. il: bad lain himself out
for six or seven speeches, and I mashed
all but one. The lir.st day I eol then
lie was supporting motions, and moving
tu amend and strike out, but I mighiv
soon let him understand thai no such
chaff passed for oratory with us. Ho
tried to bulldoze im? at tir-t, but when
lie found that his constituency had got
after him he calmed down. llcM been
fooling with the game law, and bed got
mixed up with a dog tax bill, ami a
saw -log law, and a bill about inland
fishing, and I don't know what else. 1
took him out behind the Stat". House,
and says I: "Now, boy, you squat!
Your constituents demand that you
calm right down. We don't want no
Cicero in ours, and we won't have it.
Wo sent vou down here to do a little
quiet work, and not to prauee around
and imagine you've got Patrick Il nry's
hat on. We are humble people, taking
kindly to log houses and Johnny cake,
und we don t go a cent on big words
and long flourishes.' Thai's what I
told him, and he calmed."
"You bet ho did! and if we hear any
thing more about his rising lo explain
his vnte on the dog tax, or moving to
recommit the miiskrat bill, our county
won't be no place for him to return to.
This is the place, eh? Well. I'll fodder
upandllicn take the train lor home."
What Was it all About.
A Western journalist of unsurpassed
redundancy, thus describes the dress
and appearance of what may be sup
posed to have been a representative of
the geuth r soy.. Her dress was of a
highly-wrought fabric of old pinchbeck
gold, frosted over will) Paris green can
spangles, and l'lorv.te with mahogany
sawdust. There was an exquisite over
skirt, shirred with hempen yarn of a
nniqiie pattern, and elegantly caught
up with a costly zinc-plate suspender
A wreath of natural shoemakers' wax
hung in ravishing waves from the
waist, while loops of molasses candy
hightened tho caudal appendages of the
basque do coat. The train was mas
sive and decollete. It was gorgeously
resplendent aii a row of richly em
broidered shells de oyster, sprinkled
V illi assoeted grains of cosily coal de
ashe. Surmounting all was a rich
Oriental niantlo of bag de cordage,
which was pinioned at tin; right shoul
der of tho fair wearer with a shingle
do nail, on which was a leviathan carved
dome, wrought entirely of rare pieces
of gum do spruce.
Tho tair wearer of all this magn ill
cent apparel wore a tin star buried in a
perfect torrent of red-hot blaek-coal
hair, while sho glided through the
mazes of tho danco like a gazelle wilh
its right arm in a sling. When sho
brought her pretty little Cinderella
slipper down upon tho marble tiles of
tho festive hall, tho rafters in the build
ing shook with silver laughter, while
crockery in tho cellar, like enchanted
fairies, leaped up and kissed tho floor
underneath. When excited and full of
enthusiasm this lovely Venus opened
her mouth, revealing two massive rows
of pearls that reminded tho enchanted
beholder of trains of whitewashed ears
gliding on wings of love through 1 loo
sac's magnificent tunnel. Her musical
laugh sent a thrill of delight across the
mass of surging, worshiping humani
ty, liko tho trickling of cold milk-punch
down tho back of a man who has just
filled his boots with chocolate ico
Gordon L. Ford, tho New York Tri

A Strange Eventful History -A Bloody
A Vuzttte representative was at tho
Union depot yesterday when tho day
train from Texas came in, and was in
formed that anoflieer was on board who
had with hint a prisoner w hoso history
was quite remarkable. After a short
search tho men were found in a for
ward car. Tho prisoner was an old
man, who sul very nuiotly in his seat,
and did not seem to have much inter
est in tho world or thu development of
Arkansas, lie was liniidculled and did
not care to talk. From tho officer,
however, ami himself, tho events of
his strango history wero drawn forth,
and having been patched up made the
Tho old man's name is Dahlgreen,
and he lived before tho war in tho north
ern part of Tennessee. His homo was
a pleasant one, and with his wife and
two sons ho lived very happily on his
farm ' until a quarrel arose between
neighbors. The difficulty was patched,
but one of the sons both of whom had
grown to man's estate conceived that
lie had been wronged, and dno day
while ho rtinl his brother wore passing
nloi) tho road in a wagon they camo
up with live men, their neighbors, and
the quarrel broke out afresh. Tho young
men were courageous nnd would not bo
intimidated by their opponents. Hot
words led to blows and the live men,
pulling pistols, fired upon the Dahl
green bos and killed them. They then
ran away, mid, tearing tho vengeance
of old man Daidgreeu, for he w as even
then considered quite an old man, dis
appeared from the community. Of
course Dahlgreen and his wife wero
nearly distracted at thu sad death of
their "boys," of whom they were very
proud,, and Mrs. Dahlgreen never re
covered from ihe blow, but about the
time tho wnr broke out died, and tho
husband w as left to lament tho separa
tion of his family.
lie. conceived tho idea that nothing
was left in I his life for him, except to
obtain vengeance on the men who had
robbed him of his sous. Ho devoted
tho remainder of his life to this purpose.
He began systematically to search for
tho live men. whose names were Grid
ley, Black, Hew itt, Meyers and a man
called "Black Tom," but whoso truo
name was Lurdy, nnd one after another
was met aud killed. He hail no scru
ples, no conscience. His sole object was
to put the villains who had made life
no object to luni out ot the way. lie
took no interest in the war. It mat
tered not whelher the North or South
were victors. He shot Meyers and Lur
dy in Tennessee, and escaped tho ofll
ccrs who were set upon bis track. Tha
old man dUappcared from bis county
and no traces of him were beard for
several years. The man Gridley died
of pneumonia in Cincinnati, and Black
is serving out a term in tho State Peni
tentiary at Columbus, Ohio, for burg
lary. Tho last of these men, Hewitt, was
slow ly but surely tracked by Dahlgreen
to Colorado, and it was there, in a liltle
town on the frontier of tho State, at
Coyote, he came up with hint and shot
hi ni in cold blood, after ho had thrown
up his hands and asked for mercy. Tho
little community was terribly excited
about tho murder, and started ollicers
on the track of Dahlgreen, who threw
them oil" the scent. No more was heard
of him until last month, when informa
tion was received that ho was in Hous
ton, Texas, and there he was arrested.
As the prisoner concluded what he
had to say, he remarked:
"I am satisfied; have had my re
venge, and 1 do not caro what becomes
of me. I hnve nothing more to live for,
and 1 would rather hang than not have
"fixed" the men who killed my boys."
About this time the train moved off
and the interview closed.

death is announced from Loudon by

When igi'ing from Switzerland to
Italy via Mmit Ceni.s, somo years ago,
tho writer contracted a sudden severe
cold, which, in Ihe chill air of Turin,
soon brought on a severe attack of bron
chitis. We hastened over to the genial
air of Genoa, but it atlbrded little re
lief, and tho advice of Dr. Paccloei,
Professor in the noted Italian medical
college there, was called in. He pre
scribed a 9y simple remedy, which
was at once ell'eclive, as it has been
with many others to whom we have
since recommended it. Put into a pint
or larger bottle about, three gills of wa
ter, and add two drops of good wood
creosote. Shako thoroughly, take a
mouthful, gargling it awhi'lo in tho
throat, and swallow it. Repeat this
frequently, so as to use up the mixture
in tho first twenty-four hours, always
shaking well before taking. After tho
first day use Hi ire drops of creosotes and
tho same aiiiounlof water during twenty-four
hours, so long as it is needed.
The same mixture hits of leu proved ve
ry successful in nitiirrh. In this case
a handful or two of tho well shaken
creosote ami water is snuffed up through
the nostrils until it reached the throat
ami is spit out. A tnhlcspoouftil or
more is also gurgled In tho throat nnd
swallowed. As catarrh Is an Inflamma
tion of. the nasal passages, accompanied
wilh a mucus deposit, creosote, which
is largely carbolic acid, would seem to
bo useful hero just as dilute carbolio
add Is cll'eclivo lu cleansing any putrhl
Bores. Catarrh Is tho result ot mnW
ncss, and is promoted by a cold. A
toniiiff up of the system and any simple
remedy Ukn the abovo Is ellective, un
less the catarrh is severe and of so long
i-oiitinuanco as to have permanently
disorganized the nasul cavities. Amur
