DETROIT, Aug. 5. It 'was precisely ten
minutes after 5 last evening when, with a
sigh of relief, Commander-in-Chief Veauy
swung his slouch hat on his head and
prasped the hand of ex-President Hayes.
Over six hours before he had given the
signal for the head of the column to'
move, and for more than five of them he

feet while the vet

regulars, stood it bravely, and although
they mutually agreed that they were
glad enough it was over, the veterans,
footsore and worn out as they were, were
in the best of spirits. There were from
25,000 to M,0f0 men in line, according to
Meeting of the Encampment.
Promptly at 10:30 a. in. to-day the an
nual session of the nut ioniil encampment
was called to order. The hall was crowded
with delegates and veterans. The organi
sation was promptly effected, and the en
campment proceeded at once to business.
At the same hour the Woman's Kelief
corps met and organised for business. The
national encampment met at Ileecber's
hall and the AVomau's rMh-f corps at the
Church of Our Father. While these meet
ings were going on there were a dozen or
more reunions in progress.

An ex-President in the Ranks.
For tie first time in the history of the
order tn ex-president of the United
States marched with the posts of his
native sate. It was Rutherford B. Hayes
that woa this distinction. He joined the
Clevelard post just before it reached the
reviewing stand, saluted as he passed the
commarder in-chief and marched several
blocks with the Buckeye lads before he
retraced his steps to the grand stand.
On Monday night there was an interest
ing scene at the National department
headquarters, where ex-President Hayes,
in benalf of a committee of the order, in a
graceful and eulogistic speech presented
the retiring commander-in-chief with a
diamond-studded Grand Army badge
upon wl.ich a round thousand dollars had
been expended. Colonel Veaaey made a

HIS VICTIM A GRANGE SUPPLY CO.
Thousands of Dollars Stolen by Taking
Letters from the Mall Containing: Or
ders Sent by Farmers with Postal Notes
to Pay for the ods A Long Search
for the Culprit Finally Rewarded by
Ills Capture How It Was Done.
Chicago, Aug. 5. After robbing the
mails for over a year, during which his
stealings must have amounted to several
thousand dollars, Carrier Henry E. Bar
low was arrested yesterday by Captain
Stuart. A year ago last month Montgonir'
ery, Ward & Co.,on Michigan avenue, dis
covered that orders sent them by out-of-town
purchasers, never reached their of
fice. This firm's business extends from
one end of the country to the other, and it
receives stacks of letters every day, the
majority of which contain money orders,
postal notes, checks, or drafts.
The Farmers are Interested.
When the firm was started some years
ago it was known as the Farmers' Grange.
It was run on the co-operative plan, and
in order to secure the benefit of discounts
in buying gocds the purchaser had to be a
member of the grange. Farmers who had
uo kuowledge of operating a scheme of
the kind were put at the head of affairs,
aud as a result it proved unsuccessful. It
was then that Montgomery, Ward & Co.
took the grcuge in hand. It is now the
largest supply agency in the west. When
the complaints began to come in to tne
firm about a year ago that orders accom
panied by mouej were never filled the
matter was laid before the Chicago post
Hundred of Letters llolibed.
The losses grew until it was no uncom
mon thing for the firm to receive -'hi let
ters in a day asking why orders had not
la-en filled. Kight months ago Captain
Stewart went to work on the case and
since then he has devoted the greater part
of his time to it During this time com
plaints similar to those made by Mont
gomery, Ward Co. wore received frcm
Lapp, Florsheim Co. aud the Chicago
Haifa l"7in Males Complaining.
Captain Stuart Worked steadily for two
mouths in trving to locate the thief, and
at the end of that time was as much in the
dark as ever. But the complaints in
creased. Men aud women wrote from
Texas, Maine. Pennsylvania, Kansas. Ore
gon, ami Massachusetts that goods whicn
they ordered were never sent. In most
cases a money order or a postal U'te ac
companied t he order.
Ilnn thr Thief Was Detected.
At last Montgomery, Ward & Co.
wrote Jo thousands of their patrons in
structing thv'tu to take the miniUT of t e
postal notes which they enclosed in letters
when ordering goods. These numbers
were then sriit to the firm and it was in
this 'ay the thief was at last detected. A
postal note may be cashed at any post
office in the county and uo quest ious will
lie asked of the person who presents it.
( aught the llohher at Last.
After a list of V'O or so postal notes hud
been obtained an investigation was made,
and it was concluded that the thief signed
his name to the receipts, when cashing the
notes, "James A, Blotten," "James E.
Black," and James A. Rice." and that he
cashed them in Chicago. Captain Stu
art then took all of the clerks in the postal
note department into his confidence and
instructed them when any person signing
the names of Black, Kice or Blotten should
present a note to detain him. When Bar
low next appeared he was nabbed.
TROUBLE AT ASBURY PARK.
The Founder of the Resort Wants Negro
AsnrtiY Paiik, N. J., Aug. 5. Founder
Bradley is on the warpat'j. He has called
a special meeting of citizens at the town
ha'l. The dbject of the meeting is to pro
test . agaiust Dr. Hugh S. Kiuiuouth, a
leading business man here, renting his
hall to negroes for the holding of balls.
Bradley claims that the renting of the
hall to negroes is a nuisance, and will en
deavor to have Chancellor Grant issue an
injunction prohibiting Dr. Kinmouih
from further letting the hall for such oc
casions. What, the Colored People Think.
The colored people are much excited
over this action of Bradley, and a-sert
that he is trying to drive them out of the
place. If the negroes are prohibited from
further using the hall they will have no
place for holding entertainments. The
hall is in the central part of the town. A
big tight is expected.

Th turning point
in woman's life brings peculiar
weaknesses and ailments. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription
brings relief and cure. It is a
powerful, invigorating, restorative
tonic and nervine. It imparts
strength to the whole system in
general, and to the uterine organs
and appendages in particular.
"Run-down," debilitated and deli
cate women need it. It's a legiti
mate medicine purely vegetable,
perfectly harmless. It's guaranteed
to give satisfaction in every case, or
money refunded. Nothing else does
as much. You only pay for the
good you get. Can you ask more?
As a regulator and promoter of
functional action, at that critical
period of change from girlhood to
womanhood, " Favorite Prescrip
tion " is a perfectly 6afe remedial
agent, and can produce only good
results. It is equally efficacious and
valuable in its effects when taken
for those disorders and derange
ments incident to that later and
most critical period, known as "The
Change of Life."
