WEARY OF BREATH.
Raslily lniporlunale Gone to Her
Hat le Bmi'd Muirtte at the lt.
lamea Hotel Mr Taken Mor
phine and Ile From Its
KITeria t"o rontr'a
Hattie Root. young girl about SO year
of age.committed euicide at the St. James
bote! last night by morphine poisoning.
She had been employed at the hotel as
diDing-room girl the pan few weeks, and
although it was known to the help that
she had gentlemen calltrs.it was not sup
posed from her actions ihat she had con
tern plated suicide. Shortly after 12
o'clock the cook, who occupied an ad
joining room, heard her moaning and at
once notified Landlord Rjan, and the
two proceeded to her room, where
the young girl was foutd stretched upon
her bed in an inconscious con
dition, while besu e her were
a number of letters and a
box on which was written "morphine,
poison." Hurst von K( cckritz, the drug
gist underneath the hotel was immediate
ly notified and he at once summoned Dr.
Ludewig. Mr. von Koeckriiz then went
up stairs and he togethir with Mr. Ryan
and wife worked with the unfortunate
girl until the arrival of the doctor shortly
afterward. The doctor administered an
tidotes and applied a current to assist
respiration, but it was too lafe. The girl
became gradually weaker and at 2:35 life
A letter was found nrar by which had
evidently been written thortly before, and
from which it would appear that there is
something connected wi n the case which
she did not care to ha?e known. The
letter reads as follows:
Dear Friendj: If I have any, forgive
me for causing you This trouble, but life
is simply unbearable to me. I have no
friends nor home, and death is best for
me. Good-bye. Snoul.l a letter come for
me plta.se bury it wiih iae unopened and
fulfill the dying wish of
After her death Corcner Hawes was
immediately summoned and impanneled
a jury consisting of Horst von Koeckritz
(.foreman) T. J. Muri hy, Charles R.
Wheelan. Thomas J. Kormoyle, Capt.
George Long aod John Muiqueen. and
tbe inquest was held at 9 o'clock this
Dr. Ludewig was the first witness ex
amined. He testified es to his being
called at about 1:30 o'clock to attend the
girl who bad evidently taken poison.
Witness administered the proper antidotes
aDd applied a current to assist respira
tion . Tne eirl was in an unconscious
condition and continued to grow weaker
until her death at 2:35 o clock.
T. J. Ryan, proprietor of the hotel,
was the nect witness examined and he
testified to being called by tne cook and
finding the eirl in the coc dition as above
stated, and having assisted in applying
restoratives. Witness alio testified to a
conversation which he ha 1 with the girl
on Sundny last in which s le referred to a
young man who was emp.oytd as a cook
at the Rock Island house, where she had
previously worked, saying that be was
going away with the Rod nan Ki3es, and
tflfct she did not thmk he would return,
and adding that she did not thiok she
would wait for tim.
Horst von Koeckritz. wl o was tae last
witness, testified to beicg called as above
Btated, and rendering what assistance he
The jury retired and shortly after re
turned a verdict that Hatt e Root "came
to her death by poison at ministered by
her own hand at Rock Island, at about
2 o'clock Aug. 11, 18&1."
The young man to whom the girl re
ferred was Charlie Brown who was a
cook at the Hoik Island bouse at the
time the girl worked there, and from let
ters which were found in the dead girl's
possession, it would seem that mutual
admiration existed between the two. A
number of other letters among which was
one from one Chauncey Davis, of Daven
port, and one from one Jim Repine, of
Springfield. IU , were found.
Tbe case is a sad one, inasmuch as tte
girl, it is reported, was of modest de
meanor, and was what might have been
called good looking, and being thrown
upon her own resources had come among
strangers, where, in a moment of desper
ation, she had taken her owu life. Mes
sages have been sent to the addresses in
her possession, and the body is at Whee
lan's undertaking room, awaiting a reply
from the telegrams.
A telegram was received tais afternoon
from C. B. Root, of Springteld.the fath
er of the girl, containing instructions ta
make tbe interment here. Site will prob
ably be buried at the county's expense
unless Undertaker Wheelan succeeds in
gaining further information from her relatives.

A new disease having appeared in sev
eral sections of this slate among cattle
within tbe last few weeks, tausing much
loss to owners, from loss of flesh and
milk, and a few fatalities, the board of
live stock commissioners of Illinois, has
eaused an investigation of the disease to
be made in several sections of tbe state,
by meansof post-mortem examinations by
Dr. John Casewell, M. R. C. V. S., state
veterinarian, and Prof. A. H. Baker, of
the Chicago Veterinary College and as-
sistant state veterinarian, with a view of
ascertaining the true. nature of the dis
ease; if possible, the cause, and the treat
mem necessary to effect a cure. Tbe
results of these investigations, the sydop-
torn s of the ditease as observed, ante
mortem and post mortem, and the recom
mendations as to treatment are given in
the following concise report of the veter
inarians to the board:
The disease manifests itself by the fol
lowing symptoms: . Swelling of tbe muz
zle, soreness of tbe mouth acd feet, dry
ing up of milk (in cows), loss of appe
tile or inability to eat, rapil loss of flesh,
soreness of tbe tongue two or tbree iriclies
np from the point, and sometimes pro
truding from tbe mouth, soreness of tbe
gums and nostrils, more or less discharge
of mucous from the nose, which coagu
iates and accumulates partially closing
the openings. The soreness of the feet
and legs seems to be in tbe skin, which is
swollen from the hoofs upward, in bad
cases nearly to tbe body and cracks in
transverse fissures at the fronts of hocks
and backs of knees, and tbe animals are
inclined to lie down most of tbe time, or
are disinclined to move. At tbe time of
the swelling of the muzzle, there appear
little red dots which spread and run to
gether forming brown patches, and in
this stage, desquamation (skin peeling
off) takes place leaving raw surfaces
which heal slowly.
The following evidences of disease are
seen on postmortem examination: Ex
tensive irritation of the lining of the
stomach and bowels, and in bad cases
considerable infUinmition of it. Tbe
contents of tbe stomach and bowels are
soft, from excessive .secretion of mu
cous, which accounts for ttie diarrLoci
seen in many of the more severe cases.
The other internal organs J resent no evi
dences of disease.
From what onservitions we have made,
it seems to us that rhis disease is not con
taceous, but due entirely to some acrid
substance which forms on, or within,
some plant which is taken in for food,
for only those parts of the body which
come in contact with the food, either be
fore or af er it is eaten, are bff acted.
The following treatment, which is very
simple, seems to have a very beneficial
effect, even severe cases recovering rap d
ly : Linseed oil (raw) in pint doses, tbree
times a day, until the bowels move freely,
and for local application, a solution of
borax, as strong as water will dissolve it,
tbree times a day, applied to the mouth
and nose with snonge.
The animals while under treatment
should be kept under cover and fed -on

There is only one way to cure deafness,
ana mat is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an infltmed condi
tion of the mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
Deanng, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is tbe result, aud unless lha im-
nammanon can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 sre caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflimed condii
tion of the mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catanb) that we can
tiot cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.
