-Tna woman sufirage bill was
defeated in the Massachusetts
House on Tuesday by a vote of 61
yeas to 130 nays, with 7 pairs.-
This shows a gain since last year
of 7 in the affirmative and a loss of
16 in the negative, a net gain for
the suffragists of 25, against a net
loss last year of 37. With the ex
ception of 1874 and 1875, every
Massachusetts since 1867 has acted
on this question.
---IN regard to the rumor that he
had decided not to go to Turkey,
Mr. S. S. Cox said on Tuesday
"I have not yet reconsidered my
determination to go abroad. Two
delegations of my political friends
from New York were to call upon
me to-day to urge me to do so, but
they did not come. I am inforr.ed
they will come on Saturday. I will
be glad to see them and hear all
they have to say."

nized as an able writer and elo
.quent speaker. His popularity and
ability are conceded by the leading
Republican papers of the State.

called at the office of the Bulletin.

in for an especially hearty ovation.

stand cheered and cheered, all
springing to their feet and waving
hats, canes and umbrellas. The
veterans seemed very much grati

Then with one impulse they took
off' their hats and gave a ringing

echoed by the crowds on Eutaw and
A new feature in the practice of
surgery, of which there is much be
ing said in the public prints, is the
practice of muscle grafting. This
process consists in "aking out a dis
eased or useless masole from a pa
tient and inserting in its place a
similar part of the anatomy of some
other animal. The latest case is
that of a young lady, Annie Fin
nell, who had the muscles of her
arm lacerated in such a manner as
to produce numbness and to cause
the arm to become .useless. The
surgeons exsected from the hind
leg of a dog a portion of muscle
about four inches in length, which
it is said they have successfully
grafted in the place of the portion
of muscle removed from the young
The New York Times, not to be
outdone in the way of wonderful in
novations, claims that this surgical
performance is nothing new, and
tells of a case that occurred years
ago of a similar nature. A young
and beautiful work woman employ
ed in a whalebone factory had the
misfortune to fall against a buzz
saw and have her nose cut off.
Moved by the distress or the young
woman wha would rather have died
than to have been thus disfigured, a
kind-hearted and skillful surgeon
proposed to replace the missing
feature by the grafting process, and
removing a portion of muscle from
the tail of a fine Newfoundland dog
he succeeded in giving back to the
young lady a nose equal in shape
and beauty to the one she bad lost,
and all seemed well again with the
But alas! The success of the
transfer was too great. With the
engrafted muscle of the dog was
transferred a portion of the dog's
nature, and the fair patient found
that whenever she was pleased,
her gratification was exhibited by
the wagging of her nose just as the
pleasure of the animal mutilated
for her benefit, was expressed by
the wagging of his tail. She soon
learned to think that a wagging
nose was worse than no nose at all,
and became willing to lay down
eer new infirmity and take up again

County, Pa, writes: "DR. S. B. HARTr
MAN & Co., Columbus, O.: "I have
been a great sufferer for ten years. It
seemed as though every organ in my
body was diseased at one time or
another. I had about given up all
hopes, when I commenced taking PE

began to improve, the soreness and
pain disappeared, strength gradually
returned, and now I am as well as ever
in my life, and I owe it all to your
PYEUNA and MAxANLx. I recommend
it to my friends, and it gives better sat

Miss Maria Roderick, Warren, Ohio,
writes: "It is with pleasure and many
thanks that I write to you to tell you
of the great benefit I have derived
from the use of the PEa uA. I have
used several bottles of your PERUNA,
and can safely say it has done me a
great deal of good. I have improved
ever since I commenced its use."
Mr. T. J. Webber, Plymouth, Ohio,
writes: "I am selling your PERUNA,
and having a good trade in it. It
gives excellent satisfaction."
Mr. Thomas Acton, Brooklyn Vil

to you, my foot is entirely well, and I
-A MOST plausible explanation
of the seeming delay on the part of
President Cleveland in removing
Republicans from office is given by
a prominent Democratic member of
Congress from Illinois. Discuss
ing the question of appointments to
office with President Cleveland, the
admission was made by him that "a
good many Democrats were seem.
ingly dissatisfied with the slow way
in which charnes were being made
but that they would be satisfied
after learning the cause. The Re
publicans had manipulated busi
ness in all the departments, so that
when the Democrats came in they
could not tell the head from the tail
of affairs, and hence it was neces
sarv to move slow and to retain
these Republican officials to straigh
ten out matters before removals
could begin in earnest. The close
of the fiscal year, on the 30th of
June, will be the time for final set
tlement, and for wholesale remo
vals and appointments.-[New Or
