Although the notice of the funeral of
the youngest son of Mr. Phillip Lehning,
of Char!et(m, had been veiy brief and in
delitite, a large number of friends attended
it. A special tr-tiu took the remains and
mourners to Villa Uidge in the afternoon,
Bturting from the passenger depot. De
ceased was a very promising boy, aged
A horrible incident occurred on the
farm of Mr. John Gates, up in tho county,
Wednesday evening. A negro who was one
of a party of wheat cutters was at work
close to where a bolt of lightning struck
the ground with a terrific crash, and he was
torn into a trillion particles and scattered
like a mist all over Cacho bottoms. He
was picked up and water dashed in his
face, which soon broug'it him back to life,
but he is probably incurably daft and will
vote for Maine and Logan in November.
Next week Mr. Louis Herbert will put
a force of men to woik on his Commercial
Avenue property, below Eighth Street. He
will have tho first floor made new, tho
walla repaired, a new iron front put in and
stronger supports under the second floor so
that the new press Mr. Potter intends soon
to put up in his office.up stairs may be well
sustained. Other minor improvements are
also to be made. While this work is in
progress, Mr. P,ul H. Schuh and Mr. Jas.
Coleman who now occupy the first floor,
will remove into the frame building of Mr.
Reisser, on the opposite side of the street,
on the comer.
Five c mches full of people attended
the Methodist picnic at Cherokee Springs
yesterday. Although the day was not as
bright as it might have been those- who
went enjoyed themselves highly. There
was much good feasting on tho ground
brought therein baskets by the picnickers,
and all general invitations were extended
tojwho went without baskets, so that
there was a happy comingling of all.
Opt. Williams was with the party and did
everything in his power to insure safety
and to avoid delay. The train returned at
the very agreeable hour of 4:30 o'clock,
without having encountered any mishap.
Now that "high toned colored society"
has sickened "the organ's'' stomach and
been rj-cteJ, so to speak, couldn't "the or
gan" be indue' d to take a little Heathen
Chinee by way of cxpcrinieuti The poor
Mongolian is also a growing element in
this community, and it stands as greatly in
need of moral encouragement such ns only
a bon ton soeietyjournal like tho Africo
Amerie.in Argus can give, as their darker
brothers do. "The aspirations of the best
element" among them arc as worthy of rep
resentation, since they also "patronizo the
paperliberally ;"then why notprocure a Mr.
Wan Dam Foo, who is also an educated
man and a good writer" of hermaphrodit
ic English. Come, take a little Heathen
Chinee first, you will then be better able to
stand the other.
Oue of the slightly disgruntled among
the Argus' many "high toned colored" pa
trons, being asked why, in his opinion, the
Argus had so unceremoniously amputated
its "yaller buff" editorial appendage, re
plied, "Well, you see bos?, Mr. Gladden he
hab a putty good brain pan, but den hees
pmgnostical fermentation don't zackly line
up to de high augmental decree ob de hu
man paralax." Desiring to impress our
imformant with tho idea that wo were per
fectly familiar with classic English, we
pretended to understand just exactly what
he said and with an "Ah, wo might have
told you so," we came away to beg of the
Argus, in strict confidence, to furnish us
with a "diaphragm" or something, by
which we may decipher our informant's
There have as yet been no further de
velopments in the Nelson Howard mob
matter. Everything stands in statu quo.
Kittle, the informer, was hanging around
Commercial Avenue all day yesterday, but
went home on the Fowler. Milburn, for
whose arrest Kittle had a warrant, is cm
ployed in th Wabash switch yards, pur
suing his regular duties, without showing
any signs of fear. Ha is not easily scared,
any way, of which lact he has given ample
proof. Kittle himself denied last evening
just before leaving for homo that ho had
mado any disclosures concerning tho affair.
But he denied too much. Ho has been
shooting off his mouth too freely and been
exhibiting legal documents sustaining
what ho said entirely too loosly to make a
retraction now that will bavo any etl'ect.
Ho will probably have to stand by what
he has done and take tho consequences.
Ho has placed himself in an unenviable
light, be his story true or false. If true,
he is at best an informer against the guil
ty, a betrayer of confldenco for a mercena
ry purpose; a seller of tho good names, per
haps the liberties, perhaps even tho lives of
a dozen or moro men, for a paltry sum of
money. If not true, he has forfeited all
claim to the respect of the meanest wretch
that breaths. These are the two horns of
the dilemma in which he finds himself,
upon cither of which ho will have to sub
mit being impaled. But tho outcome of
tho whole matter will probably be wind,
which will doubtless be used for all it
may bo worth by designing men, seeking
A lie waul!
A libel al reward will bo paid to any
person or persons able to make sense out of
tho following extract from n effusion
which appeared in the last issue of the
Argus and which seemed to have been the
combined production of Mr. Gladden and
his senior associate:
"We aro forced to believe from tho arti
cles heretofore appearing in The Bulle

Caiko, Ills., June 20, 183-1.
A traveling agent of tho large drug houso
of II. K. & F. B. Thurber A, Co., New York,
writes: A member of my family had an
attack of rheumatism which was cured by
St. Jacobs Oil, the great paiu-cure.
Other remedies fr neuralgia and rheu
matism have failed because they have not
reached the fountain of tho trouble, which
is the blood. Medical science has shown
that theso are blood diseases. Athlcphoros
goes right to their sotirco by clearing out
the" poisonous and acrid substances, and re
storing tho life current to a condition of
health. Mrs. A. B. Baker, of Chicago, was
cured of pains in the back from which she
had suffered fifteen years, by the use of
half a bottle of this wonderful medicine.
"What tlio Vassar Gii U Hat.
After tho discussion of tho sanitary
coudition of Vassar College nnd tha
grounds surrounding it, tho next fea
turo, so far as health is concerucd, is
tho quality and quantity of food con
sumod. Vassar C'ollego has a fine gar
den, from which an abundant and per
fectly fresh supply of vegetables is ob
tained. Lcttuco, spinach, and aspara
gus aro very much relished by tho
students, especially in tho early Spring.
To meet this natural craving, great
quantities of tho first aro raised in hot
beds. Then follows Finnch, which,
being sown in tho Fail, matures with
tho first warm days of Spring, and after
that, in quick succession, comes aspara
gus, from beds covering rnoro than an
aero of ground, capable of producing 70
to 100 bunches daily. Besides these,
sufficient quantities'of other vegetables
aro raised from tho acres of garden,
6uch as peas, potatoes, bect3, carrots,
onions, parsnips, etc., to supply tho
table tho year round. Last year'l,800
bushels of potatoes wero raised.
Milk Is another artielo of consump
tion worthy of notice, not only becauso
of tho caro taken to have it puro and
good, but becauso it is a staple artielo
on tho table, and is furnished in such
abundance that it is literally as fieo as
water. Tho quality i3 never below 10(
per cent, cream, whilo sometimes ii
runs as high a3 IS per cent, cream, as
ascertained by frequent careful tests.
Tho dairy, which contains from forty
to fifty cows, is an interesting feature
in itself, and receives nolittlo attention
from tho largo number of persons who
visit tho collcgo in tho courso of tho
year. Theso cows arc stabled in neat
and airy stablos, whero theyreccivo tho
best attention and treatment, oven to
bo curried daily liko horses. They aro
principally carefully solcctod grado
cows. Tho Holstein strain is being
gradually introduced, as it has been
found that their milk, though unusually
abundant in flow, is exceedingly rich
in yield. Somo choice thoroughbred
llolstcins aro already in tho herd, and
they aro well worth inspection.
Great caro is taken iu the selection
of meats for tho college, and none but
tho best quality of such cuts as aro
used in our first-class hotols are ever
purchased, though mistakes sometimes
occur, as they now and then, do in tho
best regulated families. Every pre
caution, however, is taken not only to
buy tho best meats, but to have them
properly cooked by furnishing improved
rangos, charcoal broilers ami steam
facilities and employing experienced
men cooks, who, during Summer vaca
tions, find no difficulty in securing liko
positions in tho large hotels at Summer
resorts. I'oiKjhkapsic Eagle.

A portly man, with a luxuriant mus
tacho and a high, round, forehead,
climbed up on tho rotary platform iu
tho middlo of tho big photo-hippo-dromo
at Broadway and 64th street ono
sunny day last week, and ducked his
head under tho cloth that coverod a
photographic camera. A woll-known
broker, says tho Now York Sun,
wheolcd his fleet roadster into tho in
closuro, and as tho horso and sulky
whirled past tho platform had just
timo to exclaim: "How d'yo do, Mr.
Rockwood?" when tho luxuriant mus
tacho reappoarod, and tho photograph
er replied: "Pretty well, I thank you,"
and whiskod a nogativo plato from tho
camera, with tho trotter and rig and
owner reproduced in miniature.
A young bicyclist rolled past a few
minutes later, and in just one-fiftieth
part of a socond ho and his swift going
machine had been captured by tho ar
tist Last night tho artist stroked his
big board and discussed tho institution.
"Photographic art," ho said, "has
reached such perfection that tho came
ra has caught tho poetry of motion,
nnd wo can mako a picturo of tho fleet

ning on tho road, ami photograph tho

of only a few months at furthest, when
horso racos, boat races, and similar
cvontscau boinstantauoously recorded,
and tho negatives transferred by cer
tain chomical agencies upon metal
plates which can bo usod for printing
in Illustrated papors. The whole work
can bo douo in less than two hours, and
at a cost that will bo absurdly low."
Tho artist stopped to his bookcaso as
ho spoko, and taking down a bundle,
opened it and showod half a dozen
motal platos of different subjects, to
gether with tho proofs taken from
thorn. Tho proofs looked liko tho
proofs q! lirst-class wood-cuts.
