The Case of Burke.
The following appears in the local
department of the Times-Democrat of
the 25th ult:
A gentleman who arrived yesterday
on the steamship City of Dallas from
Puerto Cortez states that Major E. A.
Burke arrived at Tegucigalpa two
seeks ago and was most cordially re
ceived by President Bogram, his cabi
net and other high officials of Spanish
Honduras. The Dallas also brought
a letter, under date of the 17th inst.,
from a prominent merchant of Puerto
Cortez to a leading broker in New Or
leans, which contained the following
reference to Major Burkle's arrival:
"Burke has arrived in Tegucigalpa
and is there now. lie came by the
Hamburg line to Jamaica, from there
y to Colon, thence to Panama, and so on
to Amaplala, on the Pacific. It is
said he has $250,000 or $300,000 with
a him and he is going to his mines."
And here is a Washington special

D Burko Iroel~ ."-,"nce of his

7th, 18SS, approving Burke's adminis
trations of the treasurer's office, are
being circulated in different sections of
the country, and that a0 large supply
has been received in Washington.-
The World says it is not believed that
Burke will be permitted to return

Ihim from the criminal charges.

may seem, the use of five bottles en

A Square Confession.
The atheistical Ingersoll has at last
come to confess that he knows no more
than any one else, which confession
has been made in his oivn eloquent
style as follows:
"In the presence of countless mys
teries; standing beneath the bound
less heavens sown thick with constel
lations, knowing that each grain of
sand, each leaf, each blade of grass,
asks of every mind the answerless
question; knowing that the simplest
thing defies solution; feeling that we
deal with the superficial and the rela
tive, and that we are forever eluded
by the real and absolute-let us ad
mnit the limitations of our minds, and
let us have the courage and the can
dor to say : we do not know."
It would have been well for Col.
Ingersoll to have come to this conclu
sion before he had sown the seeds of
infidelity so broadcast.
He has attemptdta overthrow the
onlv j,,. eatret hope which revealed
religion has granted to mankind and
the only solace given to life on earth
without pretending to furnish a sub
Since he has began his confessions
of ignorance it may be that he will
wind up by an acknowledgment that
he has been all wrong.

IT'S A MIGHTY COLD DAY
In January when Pe-ru-na fails to
keep you warm. When the bluster
ing blasts of Winter envelop your
body in their icy embrace, and see.n to
freeze your very marrow; when you
shiver and shake with the cold chills
that creep over you and. pierce you to
the very bone; then it is that you will
find, if you try it, that there is noth
ing so comfortably warming and so
mildly invigorating as this same Pe
runa. Sending a genial glow through
your chilled system, it will swart your
blood a-coursing through your veins,
put new life and vigor into you, and
make you feel altogether like a new
man. The effect of Pe-ru-na in this
respect is wonderful, and is manifest
ed by no other umediciue. As a sto
mach medicine and tonic it has no
equal; and needs only to be tried to
prove its efficiency. For record of
what Pe-ru-na can do for ills peculiar
to ladies, send for Dr. Hartman's "Ills
