Che ie i, II., Nov. 23. Considerable
x 1 1 iiii-iit prevuith that Louis Tocksteio,
the murderer of the Kyao family, was
drowned in Grand Creek during the recent
storm. The meution of Tockiteln's name
1 1 this vicinity causes a shudder. He was
discharged only two weeks ago from tbs in
sane asylum at Anna, where be had
beon In confinement since the com
mission of tbe murders three
years ago. Tocknein never bad a trial for
ibe murders, having been adjudged Insane
i'T the County court shortly before he oom
rnlitod them. He escaped from his keepers
tfter heinK adjudged crazy, and In a fit of
freucr, believing hts clotbei were on fire,
tore bis garments from bis body while be
rin, until be left himself entirely nude.
Running along through tbe country, over
tbe froztn ground, his feet bleeding at ev
ery st'-p. be came to the Ryan home.
Siezlng an axe be entered the bouse
where were old Mr. Ryau, his
widowed daughter and hor two
chlldrsn. Commanding them to kneel
down and pray for their lives, be wuDgbl
axe furiously about, and never noticed the
escape of one of the children, a boy. Jfo
one saw tbe murders. But when tbe bodies
were found they were backed to pieces.
The lttt! girl's body was without a head.
I'ooksteli, after chof ping the girl's head
off at tbe moutb, carried It by the hair and
ran to the house of Dr. Gordon, where be
burst In upon the servant. His appear
ance, perfectly nude, blood bespattered,
with a human head swinging in one baad
a id a gnry axe in another, paralyzed the
neivant. He commanded ber to kneel and
pny, but recovering herself she ran away.
Before be couid kill ber be was overpow
ered and bound. He was with difficulty
kept from the populace, who were terribly
excited. He was then sent to Anna, from
which place Dr. Warner discharged him
November?. People fear that be was not
tired, and relief 1 felt over bis death.

The tirtai Victory ol lb I'alae
NkW York, Nov. 23. This morning's
Re raid commenting on the late decisive
victory of Kl Mahdi, and Hie annihilation
of the Egyptian army, suya ot the probable
fultire course of the Falte I'ropuet:
"It S'lemt to be thought in Cairo that El

fuuuy that exhibita tbe panicky condition
of opinion iu that city. It is more likely
that his force will molt awav at such forces

But his victory will furnish the otwlon for
a further fimlening of the hold of knglaml

The trustees of tbe Cork Exhibition have
refused to allow the use of tbe building to
Mr. l'arnell on the 29 h lust., for an ad
dress to bis constituent, being
unwilling to devote the property
to a political end, and not caring
to risk an v misunderstanding with tbe Gov

large number to see that absolute order
should be preserved on the occasion, but
the trusteei were immovable.

HIS OWN EXECUTOR.
K WELL- KNOWN GEMtrMAN'S fHILANTBitO
I'HY AND TIIE COMMOTION CAUS KD
BT ONE OK HIS LETTERS.
ocliest Democrat end Chronica.
We published i our local columns yes
terday morning a KigniQcant letter from a
(fenflemin known personally or by reputa
tion M nearly every person in tbe Und. We
have received a number of letters protest
inij Afriinst the use of our columns for such
'phlptblo fniU'Is und misrepresentations:"
thcruforo, to confirm beyond a doubt the
authenticity of the letter, end the genuine
ness, of ils setitiinents, t reporter of this
paper wbs commissioned to ascertain all the
posilile f'tefs in th matter. Accordingly
he visited Clifton Springs, shw the author
of the letter, Hnd with thu following result:
Dr. Henry Foster, the g-ntleman io
question, is C3 or 64 years of age and has
an rxtrtmely cortlial nunner. Ho presides
as superintendent over the celebrated sani
tarium which accommodates over 500 guests
and is unquestionably the leading health
res.trt of the country. Several years ago
this benevolent man wisely determined to'
be hiRi)n txetutnr; and, therefore, turned
over this nmgniricetit property worth 300,
000, as a free ift to a hoard of trustees,
representing the principal evangelical de
nominations. Ainonsf the trustees are
Bishop A. (J. Cnxo, Protestant Episcopal,
Buff tin; Bishop Muthcw Simpson, Phila
delphia Mothiit Episcopal; President
M. li. Anderson, of the University of Ro
chefer; H.-v. Dr. Clark, Secretary of the A.
B. C. F. M , Ut.fetnn. The benevolent pur
pose oi thu institution is tho care: 1st. of
evangelical missionnnes and their families,
whose health has been broken in their work,
2nd. of ministers f any denomination, in
good standing. 3rd. of members of auy
church; who otherwise would be unnble to
secure siii-.h care and tieatnirnt. The cur
rent expenses uf the institution are met by
the receipts from the hundreds of distin
guished 8Dd wealthy people who every
year crowd its utmost cap-icity. Here come
men aud womtn who were once iu perfect
health, but neglected tbe first symptoms of
diae ise. The uncerUiu pains tbey felt at
first were overlooked until their health be
came itnptired. They little realized the
danger before them, nor how alarming even
trifling ailments might prove. They con
stitute all classes, including ministers and
bishops, lawyers, judges, statesmen, mill
ionaires, journalists, college professors aud
officiuls from all parts of the land.
Drawing the morning Democrat and
Chronicle from his pucket, the reporter re
marked, "Doctor, that letter of yours has
created a good deal of talk, and many of
our readers have questioned its authen
ticity." "To what do you refer?'' remarked the
"Have you not seen the paper?"
"Yes, but I have not had time to read
The reportor thereupon showed him the
letter, which was as follows;
Clifton Spring Sanitauidm Co., J
Clifton Spuings, N. Y., Oct. 11, 1883.
Dkau Sir: lam using Warner's S.fe
Cur, and I regard it as the best remedy
for some forms of kidney disease that we
have. I am watching with great care some
cases I am now treating with it, and I hope
for favorable results.
I wish you might come down yourself, as
I wntild like very much to tilk with you
about your sterling remedy and show you
over our institution. Yours truly,
Signed HENRY FOSTER, M. D.
"I do not see why auylody should be
skeptical concerning that letter." remarked
"Isn't it unusual for a physician of your
standing and influence to commend a pro
"I don't know how it may be with others,
but in this institution we allow no person
to dictate to us what we shall use. Our
purpose is to cure the sick, and for that
work we use anything wo know to be valu
able. Because I know Warner's Safe Cure
is a very valuable preparation, I commend
it. As its power is manifested under my
use, so shall I add to the completeness of
"Have you ever analyzed it, doctor?"
"We always analyze before we try any
preparation of which we do not know the
constituents. But analysis, you know, only
gives the elements; it does not give tbe
all-important proportions. The remarkable
powor of Warner's 8afe Cure undoubtedly
consists in the proportions according to
which its elements ate mixed." While
there may be a thousand remedies made of
the ssuie elements, unless they are put to
gether in proper proportions, they are worth
less as kidney snd liver preparations.
"I hope some day I meet Mr. WsrnerH
personally, and extend fuller congratula
tions to him on the excellence of his prepa
rations I have heard much of him as the
founder of the Warner Observatory, and as
a man of lrce benevolence. The reputed
bigb character of the man himself gave as
surance to me in tho first place that he
would not put a remedy upon the market
that was not trustworthy; and it was a
source of s good deal of gratification to me
to find out by actual experiment that tne
remedy itself sustsined my impressions."
The conclusion reached by Dr Foster la
precisely the same found by Dr. Dio Lewis,
Dr. Robert A. Ounn, Ex Surgeon-General
Gallagher aud others, and proves beyond a
doubt th greatest efficacy of the
remedy which has awakened so much
attention in the land and rescued to many
men, women end children from diaem
