PARALYSIS of the brain killed Van-
derbilt. Paralysis of the pocketbook
killed many of his victims.
A LAKOE'sum of money , amounting1
to nearly $3,000,000 , has been given
to the city of Chicago for the endow
ment of a free public library. The do
nor is a lady.
IT is said that Jay Gould's father ,
an honest old Delaware farmer , start
ed him out with a kick and half a dol
lar and told him to "go to the devil. "
Jay is a dutiful and obedient boy.
ACCORDING to the Desert News
( Mormon ) of Salt Lake , Miss Kate
Field "is a hypocrite , a spotter and a
sneak. " This is the same Kate that
the Mormon elders all wanted to be
sealed to when she was'their honored
guest a year or more ago. Times
change and women change with them.
IT was a coincidence that when
Vanderbilfwas stricken with paraly
sis that carried him off in a few min
utes , the only person with him was
Garrett of the Baltimore & Ohio rail
road , next to him the greatest railroad
magnate in the country.Ir. \ . Garrett

Wr notice an item going the rounds
of the press showing Jeff Davis' won
derful equipoise and presence of mind.
The writer remembers once to have
seen Mr. Davis coolly and quietly
stand within three feet of a kicking
army mule. The incident gave him
a great deal of respect for Mr. Davis
personal courage , until he learned
that the mule was on the side of Mr.
Davis that was inhabited by his blind
eye , and he didn't know the mule was
NOKTH CAROLINA girl , who had
jeen supplanted in "the heart of an
idorer by a younger and handsomer
sister , put an end to the unpleasant-
less by protruding a shotgun through
a window and filling the devoted coup-
ale with buckshot , the effectbeing fa
tal on both. She then mounted a
lorse she had in waiting and rode
away , making at least a temporary
escape. The affair is of a kind that
s possible only among such a people
as the North Carolina mountaineers.
IF the baker's dozen of hostile
Apaches in Ari/ona don't succeed in
killing off the entire population of
that Territory first and tho United
States army in the bargain , there is
good reason to hope that the pestifer
ous little band of savages will be an
nihilated. So far , however , this in
significant band has managed to do all
the killing and it is about time for the
government troops to quit promising
and go killing too. It is reported that
forty-two persons , mostly friendly In
dians , have been killed within a few
days. These stories of killing are get
VANDEUIULT is a very poor man
now. He had no trejisures laid up
above , though probably he would
never have seen them again if he had.
He wasn't a specially bad or wicked
man , but was simply a gilded icicle ,
so to speak. Nobody cried , nobody
cared when ho died , and more tears
would be dropped for the poorest col
ored man in Lincoln , should he die
to-day , than were shed over Yander-
bilt. There is not a hadow of a les
son to be learned from his life , unless
he taught that we should not do as he
did. The dead chamber in the grand
mausoleum on Staten Island has no
advantage over a hole in the potter's
For seveivvyears Chamberlain's Cough

main reliance with thousands of mothers. It
will not only cure croup but if freely used as
soon as the first indication of the disease ap

with all danger and anxiety. There is not
the least danger in Riving the remedy freely ,
as it contains no injurious substance. Sold
