The Daily Bulletin.
Several little scfiits occurred at the
Council meeting Tuesday uiylit, which
will not appear in the ofllcial report of the
proceedings. Alderman Woodward desired
to bu informed as to the amount of work
that has been done en tha levee this season
and how much would need to bo done.
The Mayor stated that the Street Committee
had, in compliance with a resolution from
the Council, ordered the repair of tho
abrasions made in tha levee during tho last
florid ; that about one-third of the work
originally contemplated had been done and
that, when the wcathvr permitted, about
twenty men and teams were employed on
the levee. Alderman Woodward thought
that the work might bu done cheaper later
in the season. The Mayor replied that the
work could probably be done as cheaply
now as at any other time and that the earl
ier it was done the better, for it would have
so much more time to settle before the next
fined and there would be some chance of
getting a gras9 sod over the outer slope.
Alderman Woodward doubted tho immedi
ate necessity of the work and would like to
see the city undertake no work that could
he dispensed with, even temporarily, lie
referred to the financial condition ef tbe
city as being anything but flattering ana
concluded with the remark, "I'm in favor
of suspending work on the levee and put
ting out hall the g is lamps in the city."
The Mayor: "l'lie Alderman can learn the
sense of the Council on 'hat proposition by
just embodying his views in a resolution
and offering it to them." Alderman Mc
Hale: "Ifjthe alderman wants the work
on the levee stopped, why don't he intro
duce a resolution tothat atfect?" Alderman
Lancaster: ''Why don't the Alderman go
i ut to the levee and see what
has been done and what is still
needed to be done?" Alderman Wood
ward intimated that a resolution would be
presented at the next meeting. Another
scene occurred while the claim of Hon. D.
T. Linegar, fir expenses during his trip to
Washington, was under consideration. Al
derman McHtle had moved that the claim
be allowed in full; Alderman Wood had
objectel that the cKim was extravagant;
Alderman Lancaster had expressed a desire
to hear trom Mr. Linegar as to what he had
done for the city and the Mayor bad volun
teered an explanation as to how Mr. Line
gar came to be sent to Washington, when
Alderman Woodward arose to state that he
objected to allowing the claim, not so much
because he thought it unreasonable, as be
cause of the fiuaneial condition of the city,
etc., etc. The Mayor, interrupting : "There
is seventeen thousand dollars in the City
Treasury, available for the wants of the
citv." The Alderman: "Yes. and there
are S.OO0 anticipation warrants out fr
next year." The Mayor: "Tes, and there
is all next year's revenue of forty thousand
dollars, more or les., to pay them with."
The Alderman, excitedly: "But the city
has a large bonded debt to look after; too,
and the Mayor, interrupting: "The bond
ed debt is little over 1250,000 and has been
reduced by one-half within tho last few
irs." Alderman Wood: "I rise to a
point of order. The Alderman is not con
fining himself to the subject before the
hrtUfe and the Chair h is no right to dispute
with an Alderman on the floor. ''The Mayor,
smiling good-naturedly: "The point is well
taken and the Chair decides that it applies
equally to himself and to the Alderman
from the Second ward." Alderman Wood
ward also sat down and permitted his
features to relax until a plessant smile took
the place of the dark frown that had suffus
cd his countenance a moment before. Teace
was restored; Alderman Wood's amend
ment to Alderman McIIale's motion, to the
eflect that Mr. Linegar be a' lowed $15 per
.Ity, was defeated and the original motion
was carried ana the nill allowed in lull

Where other remedies have failed Athlo
phoros has been found to work like a
charm. Jones & Bryan, of Lancaster, Wis.,
sold a bottle to an old and respected citizen
of that town who having tried in vain all
kiads of medicine, was persuaded by his
wife to give the new specific a trial. Af
ter using only a portion of one bottle the
rheumatism left his frame, and the weary
sufferer was restored to health and vigor.

Some Interesting: Facta Concernlnij the
Men Who Stand Closest to tho
Visitors whs, from curiosity or business,
have called at the White House, must have
been impressed by tha courteous yet eyi
tematic manner with which they were re
ceived and escorted through the mansion.
The gentleman whoBe duty it is to receive
all persons coming to the White House are
Colonel E. 8. Densmore, Mr. John T. Rick
ard and Mr. T. F.Pendel, and they have
occupied their present positions through
the various administrations eincejand even
during the war. Mr. Pendel was President
Lincoln's body-guard; saw him to his car
riage tho fatal night on which he visited
Ford's theatre; and he now has in his
possession the blood-stained coat which
Mr. Lincoln wore on that memorable occa
sion. There is not a public man in Amer
ica to-day who does not know, and who is
not known by these gentlemen, and the
reminiscences of public and social life
which they can recount would fill a con
gressional volume. During the weary yet
exciting years of the war; through the more
peaceful times of Grant's administration;
while Hayes held the reins of government,
and when Garfield was shot, it was these
men who stood in the executive mansion,
welcoming the advent ef each new adminis
tration, bowing at its departure, and re
ceiving both martyrs through its portals.
During that losg, hot and never'to be
forgotten summer when President Garfield
lay between "two worlds," the nation be
came aware of tho deadly malarial influ
ence which hung about the White House.
But all through that period these three
men never deserted their posts for a single
day, although each one was suffering in
tensely. In conversation with the writer,
Colonel Densmore said:
"It is impossible for me to describe the
tortures I have undsrgone. To be compel
led to smilo and treat the thousands of
visitors who como here daily with courtesy
when one is in the greatest agony requires
a tremendous effort. All that summer I had
terrible headaches, heart-burn and a stifling
sensation that sometimes took awsy my
breath. My appetite was uncertain and I
felt severe pains in the small of my back.
I was under the doctor's care wito strict
instructions not to go out of the house, but
I remained on duty nevertheless. You
would be surprised to know the amount of
quinine I took; on some days it was as
much as sixteen grains."
"And was Mr. Rickard badly off, too?"
"I should think he was. Why, time and
again we have picked him up and laid him
on the mantel, here in the vestibule, he was
so used up."
"Yes," exclaimed Mr. Rickard, "I was
so weak I could not rise after lying down
without help, and could only walk with
the aid of two canes, and then in a stooping
position. Oh, we have been in a pretty
bad condition here, all of us."
"And yet you are all the embodiment of
health," said tho writer, as he looked at
threo bright and vigorous men before
"Oh, yes," said Mr. Rickard, "we have
not known what sickness was for more
than a year."
' Have you some secret way of overcom
ing malaria and its attendant horrors"
"I think we have a most certain way,"
replied Colonel Densmore, "but it is no
secret. You see, about two years ago my
wife began to grow blind, and I was alarm
ed at her condition. She finally became so
she could not tell whether a person was
white or black at a distance of tea feet.
One of her lady friends advisod her to try
a certain treatment that had done wonders
for her, and to make a long story short,
she did so and was completely cured. This
induced mo to try the same means for my
own restoration and as soon as I found it
was doing me good I recommended it to
my associates and we have all been cured
right here in the stronghold of malaria and
kept in perfect health over since by means
of Warner's Safe Cure. Now I am not a
believer in medicines in general, but I do 1
not hesitate to say that I am satisfied that
I should havo died of Bright's disease of
the kidneys before this had it not been for
this wonderful remedy. Indeed, I use it5

in my family all the while and have found J
it the most etlicient remedy we have ever7
employed. I know of very many public 1
men who aro using it to-day and they all
speak well of it."
"I weigh 160 pounds to-day," said Mr.
Rickard, "and when my physicians told

influences you cannot wonder that I con

My Wife's Nervous Affection.
"We had ceased to hope that my wife's
nervous affection could be cured," writes
Rev. J. A. Edic, of Beaver, P. "Many
physicians failed to do her good, but 8am
