Summer has come in earnest.
A doctor writing over the signature
of "Crotoa Oil" in Brownsville says in
reference to the excitement 'occasioned
in that town by the dissection of the
body of a friendless outcast that :
Port-Mortem examinations and dis
sections are a necessity, and the vast
amount of knowledge gained thereby
should lead every one to encourage
them for the benefit of humanitv.
One would think from general talk
that such things are rare; but if the
curtain were raised the surprise would
be great indeed, at the extent to which
the business of dissection is carried.
Perhaps it would be as well, in view
of this fact, for the people of Browns
ville to keep a closer watch on their
graveyard. If it would nrprie them

It is no exaggeration to say that 8e-,

auxiliary our trade can have. The
roads are the arteries of local com

indispensable adjunct to prosperous
business. To secure this the new law

reckoned without hi host. The girl re?

mind to defy the wishes of her mother.
But each successive visit became more an

she at last resolved to put aa end to them.
So one day when her lover called and be

This is a qaestion which always agitates
a neighborhood more or less after each new
arrival. A new comer to a strange towa
needs aa immense amount of self-possession
to enable her to stand fire against the bat
tery of canons eves that are leveled upon
her ia approval or condemnation. Shoald
she be the guest for a few days of one of
our first-clam hotels her wardrobe is closely
scrutinized ; her appearance as she eaten
the dining-room is commented upon; her
way of giviag her order; her style of wring
her knife and fork ; even her manner of
paing her co See, become subjects of con
versation among the ether guests. If the
stranger is a wowaa of the world, if she's
seen something of lite, she m blissfully un- j
conscious of the stir her coming has cre
ated; ia short, she scarcely gives' it a
thought. If she is oae of those little,
timid, shrinking ladies whose sua rises and
sets ia the bagbear yeleped "public opin
ion," she is to be pitied. 1 do not wish for

iiwa mm iu uc gorwuui cxcimnveiy ot
it, is to pat ones-self to a great deal ef in
convenience and unnecessary expense which
invariably brings a harvest of disappotat
meat and regret. The little, shrinking
lady .who is "crazy" to get into society, puts
her hoaae ia order and waits with fear and
trembling the verdict of those who are dis-
cHAaiag among themselves the question
"shall we call oa the aew. mng hber?"
shall we lake her into oar set ? "will it
do to invite her to our receptions, where
she wilLmeet with the rffe sad fashion of
the city? can we take the responsibility of
iatrodacing her?' etc. These solemn
coadavea sometimes ead ia the verdict that
the new comer is "a nice little thing not

Editor Basoo, Sedtdm. Mo.:
Dear Sir Your article in the Bazoo in
regard to the Calahan horror ia worfefmr
seriously on the minds of some of the
acton. I have-read voar article, and fm
afidavits in my possession, I can vouch for
the truth of all except the boiling in tha
cauldron. The body was most brutally
mutilated, ami then, as you state, carted olT
and dumped into the ground. An effort
will be made to have you contradict the
statement made do not do it. If I had
the time I woald write to you fallv as to
all the facts known to me, as to his arrest,
confinement, death, and subsequent acts of
tne mutilators oi toe body.
R. L. Ferocsox.
It is to be hoped that the good and relia
ble citizens of Brownsville will continue to
tarnish the Bazoo with s!I of the facts
which may be developed in the case. It
will be well, too, for them to collect all the
evidence they can lay their hands on, and
put it in shape for the consideration of a
grand jury.- As the closing sentences in
tne letter recently published over! the
sijM.atn.-e of "Crotoa Oil," aad evidently
written by a physician, justifies the belief
that similar outrages have been previously
perpetrated ia Brownsville, it would be
well to trace the identity of the "Crotoa
01" letter and then hunt ap the evidence
which will fix upon him aad his associates,

having committed. The first step to this
end can be taken by snmmoninr before the
grand jury or a justice of the peace, in a
preliminary investigation, the person to
whom the letter was given for publication,
aad coBipellinf; him to testify from whom
he obtained it. These initial proceeding
caa he commenced by requiring the coroner
to hold an inquest on the body of Calahan.

may discover that their dead, which every
civilised community holds as sacred objects
of affection and care, have, time aad time
again, been dragged from their graves to
help forward the Brownsville physician ia

is a crime, which, if ansa pec ted, can be so
committed; the remains of a dear wife, or

laid ia the grave to-day, aad left alone with
