upon the head. indicating that
he had been struck with sotnc instru

en. Thomas had acted strangely since
the disappearance of Cullings, but
seemed in no hurry to leave. Some re
marks he made tend very strongly to
fasten the guilt upon him. On one oc
cassiun. when he was asked what he
thought had become of Cullings, he
stated, "You may tind the damned cusa
in the river." It was on the 1 Oth iust.
that Thomas left with his family for Ar
kansas. The verdict of the -loner's
jury was
That Cullings came to his death by
violent im-ans. and believed to be mur

Jiistuarck Tribune: Mr. White.who

finding the corpse of a man on the

that on Friday last, while Treasurer
Anderson, of the school district in that

drew $H00
for the construction of a school building
and deposited it in one of the banks of
that citv. While awav from his home,

Hutler B. Strang, formerly marshal
of Dakota, committed suicide at his
home in West field, Teega Co.. Pa. He
arose early, dressed himself, and wa.j
making his toilet in the presence of his
wife and son lienjamin, when, without
attracting their attention, he took a re
volver he had from a drawer, and
lodged a bullet in his brain. He did
not speak after the shot. His pro
tracted illness, without hope of recov

action, as the coroner's jury found.

Congressional Gin Mills- An Odd
Washington Letter The Congres
sional gin mills are not quite so prov
able as the stationery business, the for
mer being run bv a Congressional bar
keeper who gets his rent free and fur
nishes his own material. As the house
gin mill is a very popular place with
strangers as well as hungry and tlnrstv
congressmen, there is a heap of 111 mey
in it. There is a peculiar fascination
for many people in the idea of sneaking
a drink of whisky in a teacup. Ladies
who would shudder at the thought of
going into a bar-room up town, think it
quite delightful. There was a very
nice temperance joint resolution put
through the senate at the beginning of
the session closing up both Congression
al gin mills and virtuously refusing per
mission to sell even malt liquors or
wine. The latter amendment was got
in by Fryc, Edmunds prepared the
resolution. Edmunds knew it would
never get through the house.
Well, it got over to the House, I be
lieve, if the messenger w ho bore it was
not met by Relford and murdered in the
crypt, and that is the last of it.
The vanity of the statement is re
markable. But it is not more ridicul
ously funny than the way it is played
upon. There is an old stock actor em
ployed in tho rooms of the Journal (det'k
of the House who is a character ever
entertaining. The bovs call him tho
"The Judge." He is a judge of rum.
He is a popular fellow. During the
Garfield fair a magnificent gold watch
was a prize to be voted for to the most
popular candidate for the Presi
dency. Grant, Hancock. Logan,
\kcl)o!iald, Sherman, Hlaine, ani a
dozen other popular statesmen were
running, their names and the votes cast
being displayed in a prominent place.
Some wag employed about the eapitol
wrote the. name of William Wiggins on
the board. The boys, seeing the humor
in the thing, began to boom Wiggins
against the field. It took a pretty stiff
vote to beat Grant, but Wiggins got
there, and now wears a splendin gold
watch inscribed to him by the Garfield
Fair Association as the most popular
candidate for President of the United
States. Wiggins is a very tine conver
sationalist. He met Colonel Morrison
the other day and extending his hand
"Colonel Morrison, I have just been
reading your speech, and I wunt to say
it, is the best eti'ort-—in fact, the strong*
est array of facts I have yet seen."
"Thank you," replied Morrison, "Mr.
Wiggins, do you ever take anything?"
"1 do, "said Wiggins, promply, and
the Colonel and the Judge moved off to
the bar.
When they came out I saw a merry
twinkle in the Wiggins eye, indicating
that he had struck a new vein. I
watched him occasionally and saw him
approach Judge Kelley. when the fol
lowing dialogue occurred:
Judge Wiggins -.Judge, permit me to
•uugratulate you sir, 011 your speech.
It was a splendid eft'ort. Excuse me,
Judge, if I say that as long as 1 have

Young Spoonogle never knows when
:r leave when he calls 011 a young lady.
He likes the sound of his own voice so
well that he talks on and on, while the
ooor girl
light-headed with the
ax on her strength, and wishes the
nantelpieee of Elijah would fall on the

the (jjd man had been drinking, and sat
back fith a "come one, come all, this
rock shall Hv from its firm base as soon

and convincing.
A half hour passed and the mother
liurried in.
"Dear me, I'm late," she said as she
