ble and wife were cal ed to Muscatine
yesterday in rjsponse to distressing news
of the tragic death of tae wife of Mr.
Kemb'e s brother, ElJer I. O. Kemble. of
that city. The Journal of last evening
had the following particulars of the
Our citizens were shucked, this morn
ing, as the news sprea 1 from mouth to
mouth, of the sudden d atb, last night, of
the esteemed wife of E der I. O. Kemble,
by a fall down stairs.
At about 2 o'clock this morning Mr.
Kemble was aroused from a deep sleep in
his room on the second f oor of hisd welling
by a noise which madi him think thai
someone was in the house, causing a
commotion Discovering that his wife
was not in her accustomed place, be
at once went into the hall and
down ttairs, from whence the noise
bad come and found his wife insensible
on the floor at the foot of the stairs. Tak
ing her up, he began to fear that she
must be already dead. 83 there was no
response to bis queslior.ings and only a
slight fluttering of the 1 eart when he first
took hold of her.. Meantime the two
daughters, who had als- been aroused by
the noise of their anther's fall, made
their appearance. The oldest, Miss Vida,
was sent to call Mrs. Kessinger, whose
home wa9 just across tie street, and also
to summon Dr. Ruth, whose residence
was not far away. Mr Kemble held the
prostrate form of his w.fe till the assist
ance thus summoned came to hand, but
it was too late her Hf had fled. Ex
amination showed that she bud fsllen
upon her head prob-ibly striking the
lower step of the stairs and that the fall
had dislocaud her neck,' so that death
muol have been insttntineous.
How ebe happened to fall is a mystery.
It is supposed, however, that she was
walking In her sleep, though she was not
accustomed to do so. and that touching
tbe wall with her hands she fell headlong
down stiiirs, or possibly over the railing
at he sHe of ihe siairwiy , supposing it
was her bed. She had been unusually
busy wivh household and other duties
during the preceding day and was very
weary on retiring. The last thing she
had done during the day was to put up
some curtains which had been taken
down for house clearing, saying she
wsntcd to have everything "all right for
tomorrow." Thusha3 been extinguish
ed, very suddenly and mysteriously, a
beautiful light in society and the chief
charm of a happy homt.
The Journal also gives an extended
mtice of the deceased lady's life, her age
being 55 years, and pays her a beautiful
The funeral occurred this afternoon,
the remains being taken to Oskaloosa for

MJt. MVEXIRY APOLOGIZES.
The Yansc 'Lawyer. Uoea the Bight
Thins; Regards HI) laaalt to
I adze Adam. '
At tbe opening of the county court in
the circuit court chamber at the court
house tiis morning. Attorney William
McEniry made a frank and manly apology
to Judge Lucian Adams for his insult to
the court in connection with the gambling
caseslast Monday morning. The language
which Mr. McEairy used was as follows:
"While a student under Judge Cooley
he said to rce there are two things which
lawyers ought not to do: one to deceive
tbe court, the other to abuse the dignity
of the court. After mature re
flection. I feel that in the heat of passion
last Monday morning I made use of
language tending to abuse the dignity of
this court. I now take this opportunity
of apologizing for what I said, and ask
that it may be received in the same spirit
in which I offer it."
Judge Adams in accepting the apology
said there was no malice on bis ' part
toward Mr. McEniry, but that he had
not intended to pass over tbe occurrence
of last Monday merning without requir
ing such reparation as was necessary.
Neither would be have felt like admitting
that there was anything in the liae
of justification for it no matter what the
attorney might have considered the pro
vocation bis conduct was indefensible.
Judge Adams was glad that Mr. Mc
Eniry had realized that an unqualified
apology was the only thing proper. He
must have known that it was necessary
to enforce such rules and requirements
as would insure proper respect for tbe
court. There was too much tendencv to
hold tbe couits in light estimation and
the license which attorneys tometioaes
use to disregard the position of the court
may be taken advantage of by others, and
the court if it permitted such misuse of
its functions would soon lose its power
and usefulness. Judge Adams was, be
Baid, glad to accept Mr. McEniry's apol
ogy in the spirit in which it was pre
A IIARAROrs SPECTACLE.

Tbe Davenport Democrat of this morn
ing contains tbe following:
There was an exciting runaway on the
Brady street hill last evening shortly be
fore ? o'clock. A negro who is known
universally as "Mose." was driving a
team of Fritz Gerstenberg's horses down
the bill, attached to an ordinary wagon
heavily loaded with straw and hay At
about Seventh street one of the lines
broke, and the driver flew backward and
slid from the load. This served to
frighten the horses, and away they fiew
down tbe hill. The load of bay was
scattered along tbe road all the way to
Fifth street. There the near front wheel
of the wagon struck the base of one of
the gates, which at that time was
open, and broke square oS one of the
cast iron weights mat serves as a balance
to the woodec arm of the gate. The
wheel that came into contact with the
gate was knocked into splinters, and the
wagon enme to a sudden halt. Not so
the horses, however. They had gained
such a momentum in their run down
grade that as tbe wagon stopped the har
ness Knapped, and they shot forward. one
to keep its feet, aud the other to alicbt
square between the rails of the north
Kock Island track, with a broken leg.
A crowd collected in an instant, and re
mained about the corner for
half an hour, when a tardy de
cision was reached that the horse
would have to be killed. Tben ensued a
barbarous and dii'gustiDg spectacle. Iu
stead of clearing tne street aLd shooting
the animal, aa attempt whs made to kill
it witb a pick-axe. The first blow
brought tbe horse to its feet, to fall again,
and tbe second precipitated another
struggle to rise. Not until tbe pick had
been suik in the beasl's skull four times
did it drop back in the throes of death.
Strong men turned away sickened at the
sight. When life was Anally extinct the
animal we 3 partially covered with bay
and hater tbe carcass was carted away.
Tbe episode was one of a kind that does
not occur on our streets every day, for
which let us be duly thankful.

The sandbar at Richmond is at present
the worst place on tbe Mississippi be
tween Kock Island and Stillwater. The
course of tbe river at that point is very
winding, and it is bard to govern a boat
with a raft. The government fleet is now
at work there, damming up tbe sloughs so
as to throw the whole force of the cur
rent into tbej main channel, and in other
ways making the place much more pass
able. That the work done under gov
ernment direction in the pist years for
tbe improvement of navigation on the
upper Mississippi has been effectual is
evinced at the present low stage of wat

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an iofltmed condi
tion of the mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tuoe gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless ths im
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but au inflamed condiv
tion of tbe mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness fc&tiRpd hv o.Htarrh i..t n on.
