"Talking about street cars," said Bail
III Csvsnaugh yesterday afternoon, "I
never saw such a jam of people as there
was on Slate street In Chicago yesterday,
and the street cars caused It all. The
fact is tbe crowd was terrific."
"Why, what was tbe matter?" ani
lously Inquired Sam Wright, "what were
so many people doing there?"
"They bad gathered there to see tbe
cable catch the 'grip, " replied Mr. Cav
anaugb, with a satisfactory air.
"But, I've got one as good as that,"
put in a bystander, "why Is the A rocs
like the grip?"
"Why!" echoed half a doz;n voices.
"9imply became everybody takes It,"
came the response, and everybody cno-.
gratulated the propouodcr of tbe pun on

Probably tbe faithful and efficient get
their iust deserts In railroading more fre
quently than in any cither branch of in
dustry. At least that seems to be tbe
case with Mr. I. L. Bush, at one time
superintendent of the Racine & South',
western division of the C, M. & St. P.
road. After leaving here Mr. Bush was
made superintendent of tbe Jim River
Valley division, and afterward tbe South
ern Minnesota division. Now be has
been set up another peg, and been made
superintendent of tbe Hastings & Dako
ta division, extending from Hastings,
Minn , to Aberdeen. North Dakota. Some
day we may expect to hear that Mr.
Bush has been made general superin
tendent of tbe great St. Paul system, with
"Doc" Bush as assistant.

On Friday evening at Harper's theatre
the musical wonder, "Blind Tom." is to
appear. The Little Falls, N. Y., Timet
Perhaps the greatest musical prodigy
tbe world baa ever known Is Blind. Tom,
the colored pianist. He has played be
fore the sovereigns of Europe, the great
roasters of Europe bave beard him, and
they have all been amazed by bis extra
ordinary gifts. Blind Tom appeared in
Little Falls a number of years ago, and
be will give another exhibition of bis ex
traordioary skill if natural gift can
property be called skill at tbe opera
bouse on Thursday evening of next week.
A One programme will be offered, and
no doubt every lover of good music
music that is not surpassed anywbere
will attend tbe entertainment.
For Saturday evening one of the lead
ing attractions on tbe road baa been se
cured by Msnager Steel in the "Waifs of
New York," of which the St. Louis Globe
Democrat of Oct. 14, says:
"Miaa Katie Emmelt in 'The Waifs of
New York.' attracted an audience that
filled every inch of space In the Standard
yesterday afternoon. This play was
given at tbe same theatre a year ago, and
its production yesterdsy was received in
a way that tells it will be equelly as pop
ular now as it was tben. The company
is fair, and tbe play is mounted in good
style. Trinity church. Tombs police
court, exterior of the Tombs and other
prominent ltes in New York are repre
sented in tbe set pieces. Miss Katie Em
mett as W illie Rufus, interprets all the
salient points of a boot black, even to the
adjustment of a bat to give a touch de
meanor. Some very funny lines fall to
her role, especially in tbe third act,wbere
sbe keeps the audience in constant
laughter by ber sharp answers to the
lawyers who apply the cross examination
pump in the trial at the Tombs police
court. La Petite Lillie, a child actress
five years old. represents a waif in a
clever way for one so young, and com
mands applauite. There are enough fire
and smoke to satisfy tbe senst tionally in
dined, as the Harlem bridge burns while
two trains are crossing, and the play
cornea to an end in a fire at Five Points."
A Kewepaper'a Kicata.
In this state a short time ago several
subscribers were sent to jail for refusing
a paper on which they owed. Here are
some of tbe facts as to a newspaper's
rights under the law boiled down:
"A postmaster is required to give no
tice by letter returning a paier docs not
answer tbe law when a subscriber does
not take bis paper from tbe office, and
state the reason for its not being taken,
and a neglect to do so makes a post
master responsible to the publisher for
tbe payment. Any person who takes a
paper from tbe postofflce. whether di
rected to bis name or another, or wheth
er be bss subscribed or not, is responsli
ble for tbe pay. If a person orders
his paper discontinued, be must pay all
arrearages, or the publishers may con
tinue to send it until payment Is made,
and collect the whole amount, whether it
be taken from tne office or not. There
can be no discontinuance until the pay
ment Is made. If tbe subscriber orders
bis paper stopped at a cenain town, and
tbe publisher continues to send it. the
subscriber Is bound to pay for it if he
takes it out of the office. The law pro
ceeds on the ground that a man must pay
for what be uses. The conns bave de
cided that refusing to take newspapers
and periodicals from tbe postofflce, or re
moving and leavlntr them uncalled for. Is
prima facia evidence of intentional
.ot la Favor fthi Overhead
Down In St. LouU they don't think
much of the overhead wire in connection
with tbe operation of street railway lines.
There was a public meeting in one part
of tbe city the other night at which the
following were adopted:
Whereas, Bill No. 134, originating in
the city council, and now pending in tbe
bouse of delegates, will, if it becomes a
law, materially depreciate the value of
our property and endangtr tbe lives of
onr families, in that it provides for a
double-track system of railroad to be
operated by overhead wires, which motive
power Is demonstrated to be a constant
menace to life and property; therefore,

herewith subscribed do hereby form our
selves into an association, to be known aa

In commenting on the above tbe Globe
Democrat ssys: We are not opposed to
progress and improvement, but we think
where a question of life and death is in
volved and as long as the science of elec
tricity is in only an experimental stage,
citizens who bave to take the risks ought
to have the benefit of tbe doubt.

Tbe cable oewa trout London brini a the
sequel to an old scandal affecting a Briti jh ex
eolonel and member of parliament, Hughes
Ballet, Col. Hogbas-HaJJet, previous U 1887,
bad under his roof a Miaa Selarvn, the daugh
ter of bis deceased wife, and whose pre perty
h held in trout. His wife at tbe tiscsand
the present Mrs. Hughes-Hallet was a Phila
delphia woman who took to him a large
fortune and, as aha alleges, support -d his
household in becoming state. One diy she
was surprised by a telegram from the iwner
f Ellingham Hall, where Col Hughea-Hal
let and bis ward were guests, givin; this
"Your husband is a villain. I bave 1 urned
him ont of my houe."
CoL Hnghea-Hallet had been man-it d five
years to Miss Emily Scbomberg, of rbilaiiul
pbla, wbo, in possewion of a large fortune,
spent ber maiden leisure on tbe contin nt of
Europe. Miaa Scbomberg waa the daughter
of an o Olcer of tbe regular array, was a great
beaut and remarkable for her taleita as
well as great fortuua, tha latter the gif . of an
uncle and aunt.
As soon as tbe explosion occurred, 1 hreat
ening the peace of CuL Hughes-E allet'a
household, his wife announced her intention
to stand by him, and when it was discovered
that the festive colonol bad squandeied his
ward's fortune Mrs. Hallet's own fortune
was allowed to be used to make np a defi
ciency of 5,000. At the time of her mar
riage Miaa Scbomberg had executed a power
of attorney to her husband to control her
The scandal at Ellingham Rail was aggra
vated by the persistency of tbe brofhur of
the lady in tl e case,
Capt. Kelwyo, who
was iustru nontal
in bringing about

in following up the

aud old army and family debts the private
fortune of tbe wife was brought so low tbat
sbe was compelled to meet tbe engag ements
by inst.illmenU, tbe amount being atiout
$6,000 each yoar.
Mrs. Hughes-Hallot now seeks a legtl sepa
ration from her husband on account of the
Selwyn affair. In an interview with a cable
correspondent she says: "It has cat sed mo
endless mortification and the most ptignant
heartaches. It is the culmination of a long
experience of infamies that no wonian can
tolerate indefinitely." Tbe agxravt.tion in
the Selwyn case was the greater because of
tbe closo family relations of the delinquents.
Miaa Selwyn called Col. Hughet-Uullet
father, and he spoke of her as his cuil 1. The
assignation at Ellinghaiu Hali was p.-ocMivd
on the colonel's representation that be do
sired to inHt Miss Belwyn for the purpose
of baring her appointed guardian of his two
children by the marriage with Miss relwyn's
mother. The interview, as "as disclosed
later, was for an entirely different urpose,
and tbe laiaxon was proved to have teen an

chills and fever, bilious remittent fever,
dumb ague and ague cake. Tiese foes
to bodily peace are all blood relntions.aa
there is no doubt tbat these endemic
complaints are produced by coitamina
tion of tbe blood by tbe roiasmt.ta exist-,
ent in both air and water in malarious
regions. Hostetter's Btomact Bitters
expels from the blood the yims with
which miasma infects, but itdnesmore
than this It neutralizes the atn.ospberic
and aqueous poison and its gems before
they have permanently fructifli d in the
system, and thus effectually protects
against it tbe fierce inroads of this dia
bolic brotherhood of diseases Thus
it is not only a remedy, but alio a pre

effect, perfectly efficient. Nervousness,
biliousness, dyspepsia and kidney trouble
also succumb to it.
