Dr.Baxter,who has been the President's
physician tor ten yetrs previous to the
shooting, said Thursday that although of
stalwart physique, Gen. Garfield suffered
much during the timo he attended him,
irom chronic dyspepsia and a delicate
stomach, brought about by his sedentary
habits and mental strain. He suid tho Pres
ident was in the habit of eating too rapid
ly, without proper mastication, and also
made a practice of sitting up too late at
night over his books or in considering pub
lic business. These habits had the effect of
Increasing his dyspectic condition. Dr. Bax
ter thinks that the attending surgeous have
not given these facts as much attention as
the facts called for.
Since the colored people have finished

language, fighting, dancing, singing,
whooping or quarreling, or any other unus
usl sounds or noises in his or her house, or
in his or her premises, in such manner as to
disturb the neighborhood or those passing
through tho streets." The fine for the of
fense is not loss than ten nor more than
fifty dollars for each and every offense. Ac
tionin such cases, it appears, is to be
brought against the owners of the premises.
Commercial ayenuo, botwecn Eighth

would be advisablo to ponder well before

The star Capella seems to be earning

Seven hundred and thirty-seven shares
of the Caiio Water Works Company's stock
had been taken up to yesterday
cvning, and there nas oeen
as yet no effoit made to sell stock by the
incorporators. A committee composed of
two or three of the incorporators could sell
all the stock remaining unsold in half a day
if they made an effort to do so. The latest
plan which has been suggested and which
is favored y some of the incorporators, is
to construct two settling basins with a ca
pacity of halt a million gallons each, which
are to be placed near the Mississippi
river in tne vicinity oi Twenty-eigmn
street. These are to lie filled with water
which will bo allowed to settle and become
ijuite clear before being run into the pipes.
The object in having two basins is to allow
the water in one to be used while that in
the other goes through the process of set
tling. The patrons of the water works
would have the purest and cleanest of wa
The Chicago Legal Adviser, wbicli a
few weeks ago championed Attorney Gen
eral McCartney as against Governor Cullum
in the county election question, now admits
that the Governor's opinion may be correct,
and that no election can legally be held;
but it says: "his opinion given at this time
is not entitled to weight. After an election
has been held and application is made to
him to issue commissions, tho question of
the legality of the election will be properly
before him tor determination, and his de
cision would then be entitled to bo respect
ed But his opinion given in advance, bo
fore the subject is regularly before him, is
a mere voluntary suggestion and not bind
ing to any purpose." The Adviser is not a
good adviser. In the face of the fact that
tho Governor has given his opinion that an
election would bo illegal, which is equal to
a refusal to sign tho commissions of offic
ers that might be eloctod in next Novem
ber, the Adviser would have the people of
the several counties bear the expense of a
formal election, which must necessarily
result in total disappointment to both tho
voters and the elected. The Adviser is
vory short sighted and is therefore an in
Paducah Nows:We learn the following
particulars of a shocking death, yesterday.
in the Black Bottom neighborhood of Mas
sac county, Illinois: A young negro man
by the name of Tanner, who lives about
three miles beyond Stringtown, had been
out hunting, and in meeting an acquain
tance took a seat upon a fence, resting his
chin upon tho muzzle ot his gun. While
holding tho gun in the position named, be
alter wards. began to slip from the fence to
the ground, when in some unknown manner
the gun was discharged. The gun had
been heavily loaded with buckshot, and
the entire load passed up through Tanner's
icad from the chin to tho top, making a
frightful wound. The man, notwithstand-
ng his wound, started to walk to bis home,
a distance of fifty yards, and after reaching
there spoke a few words, and even lifted
water from a pan and with it bathed ins in

Tho wisdom of plaqing gravel upon tho
south side ot Eighth street during this ex
tremely dry weather is questionable, upon
the ground' that there is not sufficient
moisture to , enable the gravel to
pack down and thus form a firm road bod.
The little moisture that the gravel contains
when first spread over (tho stone pavement
will be absorbed within an hour afterwards
leaving only pebbles and dry yellow dust,
or sad, which work through the layer of
small stono as through a seive and disap
pear from sight almost entirely. This is
tho process by which the thin layer of
gravel placed upon the same side of the
street, on the Commercial avenue end, dis
appeared, until not a pebble was visible
Soon after tho gravel had been placed upon
the north sido of the street a heavy rain
fell upon it and the result is that the street
on that side is in an excellent condition
However, now thnt the work has been done,
it is well to nmko the best of it. If, in the
absence of prospects for immediate rain,
the merchants on the south side will have
tho newly graveled portion ot their street
well sprinkled, it is more than likely that
tho work done and tho material used will
not be a total loos as was the case with that
The disposition to criticise tho physi-
aians who havo given their best attention to
President Garfield since bis prostration, is
not a very commendable one, to say the
least. Those who indulgo in these criti
ci&ms most, know leant aUmt the needs of
the patient and have not the slightest
knowledge of surgery or pharmacy. They
are of the "smart Aleck" species, whose
chief occupation consists in the vain en
deavor to impress the world with their own
profundity. Even many of the newspapers
nave sain some "smart things aiout ne, or
anotner, or an ot tnis distinguished corps
of professional gentlemen; and what the
newspapers nave aune nas neen none in a
more limited sphere by private people. It
the case of the President results fatally.
this carping and criticising is certain to in
crease. This is unfair. The physicians arc
all men of age, varied experience and high
professiocal skill and standing. They have
worked in concert and apparently in exact
harmony. They have had a distinguished
patient. The eyes of the world have been
continually upou then. Every motive has
contributed to induce them to do the very
best possible. If the President dies, it will
not be for lack of the very best treatment
human knowledge and skill could afford,
but in spite of these. We have yet to hear a
physician who has kept himself acquainted
with the president's case from the time he
was shot up to the present, and who has
watched closely the mode of treatment pur
sued by Dr. Buss and his associates,
express himself as dissatisueu therewith
and speak in denunciatory terms of the
men in whose care the president has suf
fered so much. Some of tho best physi
cians in this city pronounced the wound
necessarily fatal one on the second
day after it had been inflicted and they
have adhered to this opinion in spite of all
the hopeful telegrams that were sent from
the president's bedside. If the president
dies even at this late day, their predictions
will be verified and it will be
only a matter for wonder that ho was kept
alive as long as he was.

the fact that the patient's stomach is un

should not tho diet of tho new-born child

O'Donovan-Rosss, jealous, perhaps, of the
fame which the Palmer House Irish Con
