A RELIEF FUND.
(TN-miUTi, 0., Feb. 6. Tbe Chamber
ol Co ni nie roe transacted but little business.
Measures were taken to provide a relief
fund for tbe destitute. A committee of fif
teen was appointed, and the Secretary was
kept busy for some time reoelvlng subscrip
tions, wbicb were mostly for a hundred
dollars each. The Chamber itself appro
priated $5,000 to the fund. Tbe Health of
ficer announced that be would place fifteen
men on the sanitary force at tbe disposal
of tbe relief committee. Tbe rain is still
falling, tbe wind from tbe south and tbe
temperature is not falling; at 2 o'clock p. m.
2:90 P. M.
Cincinnati, 0., Feb. b. Tbe river is
59 feet 7K Inches and rising at the rate of
i laches an hoar. It Is still raining.

and tbe Baltimore A Ohio, Pittsburg A
Lake Erie, Pitt burg A Western, Pitts-

either suspended entirely or will be com
pelled to before evening. Ho far there bare
been no individual losses here, and the
damage Is confined ezclusirely to flooding
property. Tbe greatest suffering.and dam
age reported in this vicinity come from
Oougb, a region where mining hamlets and
a portion of towns lying on tbe low lands
have been Inundated and hundreds of fami
lies have been forced to desert tbeir homes
and fly before the corning flood. Io some
places It was found necessary to anchor
dwelling bouses to trees and rooks to keep
hem from drifting off to total destruction.
SCENIC ALONG THE ROUTE
of tbe great gorge, whlcb extended thirty
miles up tbe Yougbrogbeny river, beg
gars description. Streets aod door yards
are filled full of Ice, with dreary hsaps,
la many iustanees fifteen and twenty feet
high, staadlnt as silent monuments to tbe
might of the flood. So far as can be learn
ed no lives bare been lost, but tbe total
damage will reach thousands aod thou
sands of dollars. Specials from Washing-
lngton, Pa., says tbe Charters railroad
bridge at Bridge vine was washed
way, but no serious accidents
are reported. The Beaver river
rose suddenly, and curried off
about U&.QOO worth of lumber.
Cincinnati, Feb. 8. There Is no long
er a doubt that tbe water will reach last
year's height, on the contrary, with rain
still falling and tbe weather mild, tbe only
question now is by how rnuoh last year's
floods will be exceeded. The most alarm
Ing feature of tbe present situation Is tbe
rapidity of tbe rise. Last year when tbe
riter had reached this height It was rising
lest tban an Inch an hour. At noon the
gauge showed fifty-nine feet. This It an
unprecedented rise at such a high
stage of water, and shows what
a prodlgiou rainfall there has been.
With last year's experience, tbe merohantt
and manufacturers will lose much less than
then; no time is now wuted in pumping
water from cellars. Every available man
and team is employed where the water may
enoroacb in placing tba goods on higher
floors, and In removing to higher ground.
Business Is completely suspended through
out all the lower part of the city, and tbe
Grand Central Rill road Depot Is abandon
ed. Tbe Ohio St Mississippi railroad has to
eastern terminus at Aurora, Indiana,
and will run steamers between that point
and Storr't Station thence by omnibus. Tbe
Cincinnati, Washington and Baltimore
trains will use the Cincinnati, Hamilton
and Dayton depot. This can be used un
til tbe water retcbet sixty -six feet. Then
all trains will have to stop at the ttockyardt.
Tbe Bee Lite traint make that tbeir ter
minus to-morrow. The Panhandle and
Louisville and Nashville can use their de
pot until tbe water reaches sixty-two feet.
The Cincinnati Southern will not be
troubled in reaching its McLean street
depot until tbe water gets high
er tban it was last year,
but It cannot reach Its tide traoks
to do freight busluess. The Cincinnati,
Indianapolis, St. Loult and Chicago bidt
fair to be shut out altogether, unless ar
rangements can be made toieacb tbe city
via Bushville over the Cincinnati, Hamil
ton tnd Dayton road. The Cincinnati
Northern (Toledo, Cincinnati and St.
Louis), Is the only rod that cannot be
reached by the flood. The warehouse at
Duckworth's Distillery was undermined,
snd (ell Into tbe water, causing a large loss.
Soon after the cattle pens, capable of feed
log 1.000 cattle, were swept away. Mr.
Duokworth btd removed the oittle. The
lost is very heavy.

St. Louis, Feb. 8. Mr. Meyer Friede,
a member of tbe Board of Commissioners
on charitable institutions of tbe city, made
statements Tuesday to the press which
evidently Impugned the character of Mr.
John D. Shaffer, Superintendent of tbe
House of Refuge, - based upon
a lottei whlob Friede bad re
ceived from a discharged em
ploye of tbe institution now at Balti

Mayor's office, and be stated that tbe wo
man In question had been discharged oa
account of. a well-founded suspicion that
she had been conuerntd in the escape of a
girl from tbe Refuges that he had made the
direct charge to her, tnd was himself satis
fied that it was true. She cimn answering
au advertisement about uuo aud a half years

ing no references, as the said she
bad just arrived In town
and knew no one here. Mr. Shaffer had
been shown by the mavor, about a fort

tary of tbe Board of Managers of the House

tbe least consideration. Mr. Shaffer went
immediately to Mr. Jobn Q. Priest,
foreman of tbe grand jury now
In session, laid the facts before blm, and
urged that If anything warranted tuch ac
tion tbe Jury should make t presentation of
tbe whole thing to the court. The report
of that body after their regvlar visit to the

very eager that tbe Board ot Managers ot

THE WRONG TBOCSEBA.
Why a Baltimore Man Hits Applied
lor Divorce A Ntartllug
Baltimoke, Md., Feb. I. A scandal
In which some very unusual incidents ap
pear, was brought to light by tbe filing of
an application for divorce by Henry Clark,
a conductor In tbe employ of the Balti
more A Ohio Railroad. Clark left his
residence Wednesday evening, after
telling hit wife he was going
te leave that night for Martins
burg, W. Va. He did not go, however,
but returned home at a late hour and re
tired to bed, bis wife have already done
so. Soon afterward Mrs. Clark complained
of severe cramps, tnd betged her husband
to get up and go to a drug-store for medi
cine. He hastily drew on a pair of trousers
and hurried upon bit errand. His surprise
may be imagined when, on looking down
while in tbe drug-store waiting tor the
medicine, be dlseovered tbe trousers he
bad on were several Inohes too short for
him. He felt something bulky In one of
tbe pockets. Putting his hand tn, he drew
forth a roll of bills amounting to $350. This
tettled it. He was sure they were not his
troukers. It suddenly ttruok him that bit
pretence at home was far more urgent than
bis wife's necessity for medicine, and he
hastened tbore, but the man who bad
Invaded his borne, and with whom be had
unwittingly changed olothlng, bad betted
a hasty retreat. Tbe trousers whlob the
latter took away belonged to the husband
and contained only a few dollars. At tbe
wife was not able to explain matters with
satisfaction tbe busband ordered her to
leave the house also, which command the
precipitately obeyed. The tell-tale trou-
eers and content! were tent to the wife oi
tbe gay Lothario, who is a dignified old
fellow of tbe best society and tba head of t
large family of grown children.

A happy surprise it wat to Mr. A. B.
Norton, ot Bristol, conn., when AraxoraoaOB
put him on his feet, and sent him cheerfullx
about hut busmena. Let him tell bis own story:
"About three weeks tgo I was taken
with a seme crick tntha back. Tot tool dart
I was onabl to turn m bed without help, and
when lifted up could not stand on my feet I was
Induced to try Ath lopbosos, after aU the usual
remedies failed. In W mjutes arter tsklnt the
first does I could bear my wetsnt upon my test.
In two days I was able to get about and attend
to business. In two oher cases whloh hare
come to my knowledge Its use has bean ittrnilerl
with the same result."
A poor man in Philadelphia had to bor
row a dollar to buy a bottle of ATBioraoaoa.
On account ot his poverty his name shall remain
a secret. Be had suffered terribly from Bheo
maUam. lie gratefully writes:
" I took my first dote Tuesday afternoon,
and on Wednesday, after but seven doses, I had
not a sharp or severe ache left Than I reduced
the dose one-half and took the remainder of the
botUe. I was able to be steady at work till Bat.
orday, when I took a severe oold aad was un
able to use my left hand. I purchaesd another
bottle and by bed time I found relief. Xfcs
medicine Is all yon claim for it"
Investigate Athlophorob all you please!
Find all the fault you choose with it I and
yet the fact remains, that it is doing what
o other medicine ever could do for Rheu
aiatiam and Neuralgia. J
. If you cannot get Athlofhorob o f your i ' re g
gist, we will tend It express paid, on n-cript of
regular price one dollar per bottle. We prefer
that you buy It from your druggist, but If he
hasnt It, do not be persuaded to try something
else, but order at once from us as directed.:,
