We have been calling ycur attention of late to every Depart
ment of our House-none more particularly than our FANCY GOODS
DEPAETMENT. This is not because it is lacking in merit-for we
have a large assortment, at bottom prices— but because our attention
has been called in other directions, and we feel that this Department
is under such good management, and the assortment kept up so well,
that it will demand public attention and comment anyway. This
is a fact, and we hold it up as an example of what can be accom
plished, and how quick the public appreciate a stock that is thorough
in every particular. It fully demonstrates that trade is not obtained
by flashy advertisements and rematkably low quotations on paper ; but
that the people look for merit, and do their trading where they can
find the best assortment, and goods marked at a uniformly small
Buttons, Etc.
In fact, ws woald iita to spsak of everything pertaining to
FAICT BtlOD3 ; hit n neither spaca nor tine will aHow it wb will
call yoar attention putbnladf to our line of
Knitted Underwear!
And trust you will make it a point to examine,
Kiese lines we make a specialty of and shw in ME&IfiO UNDERWEAR,
from a low price garment to the highest grade of English, Patent
and Norfolk, and New Brunswick Goods, all of which are exceptional
.AJI-wool and Cashmere
We hav3 large lines of WHITE and SCARLET (Medicated), of
the best California and Eastern makes, The " Reinforced Seam,"
in some of our garments, is a new feature ; and we consider it an
improvement worthy of commendation. It ha^ the smoothness of the
MI-fashioEßi, but ia much stronger, making the garment just as
comfortable and mm durable,
My shares in the great advantage we possess, and the values
given at these counters will be found to be equal to any in the house.
OEDEES BY LETTEE, from the country, receive oar immediate
and careful attention. A trial order solicited.

a crash, and the remarks i f one man as they
watched her go down. That morning, after
all hands w- ' • called, the spot where the ship
sank was visited by the party, and £ eibin

the inception that her forefoot was twisted."
II Knowirg her condition at that time, would
you, if you had been ia comxiand oi the ex

tinue tho expedition f " No, for she had
bean fitted out originally for three years, and
the supply of clothing and provisions, etc.,
would not warrant another year in the ice.

Mm. >i ■inllli-'. Insanity.
Chicago, October 20;h.— In the Seville
insanity case to-day the Courtroom was
crowded with crariks and sightseers. Sco
villa testified to traceß if insanity in the
Guiteau family from the grandfather down.
Mrs. Scoville first showed bigns i>t insauity
when their Bon became Dick. Bne fell ia love
with the physician and confessed is. She
subsequently denied the c nf?3*ijo was made.
She soon became violen, nervous, irritating
and attempted to leave tho h'.i.si 1 , and loat
affection for he^ faiiii y, cxc p: to him.
Within the nast bix mon !ia she na.l deserted
him too. He related iv detail t.ia recent
well-known troubles with har. Sho formed
a friendship with Giorge \V. E iriic, an
alleged newspipe- ms •, and c nfe^ed to wit
ness that she loved Sadie. They wro'e and
sold letters t« Mri. Graißsid trnil others.

with G?r.rs-) Francii Trim in X»w York.
Sha '.Via very sly doit, th-.uga foroaeily
frank. SPe wa lately chitifoablj, ii.kle aud
often provoked him.
Chicago, October 20th. — At the afternoon
session Soovitta continued his te*tiuiory. He
believed her i: -:.;•■ because she was some
times quite fen»iUve, irritable and neiviiug.
She once siid if Guiteau was takes >w .y her
cothn should be got ready, and if the went
her daughter bertha should not remain. She
said she was afraid to iiva in the same house
with witnea 1 . as if he should dia suddenly
peple wr.uld believe she poisoned him. She
showed less feeling and indifference to stnti
ixenta which affect ordinary people. Tha tx
ecu'ion of Guiteau had little effect npio her.
When cress-examined, Scoville asserted
that he had always been a kind and devoted
Lu'.band, acd all his tliorts were directed to
restrain her from going about into gentle
men's offices add ranking acquaintances in
irregular ways. Ho rtver accused her if
impr j*er intin:acy wi:h oth?r men. She had
an idta that sb« was erowir.g younger, and
got ia the habit of undrfs-iog and 6'e3piDg
in her room with the. do-:r op«n, an iiripro
priety abou'. which ha remouatrated with her.
The ntxt witafes was Mia. Facnis Sco

The Trial or Bob Ford far Murder.
PLArraBURG (Mo.), October 20ih.— The
Court-room this morning was crowded to the
utmost as the testimony commenced in the
lord ca*e for the murder of Wood Hite.
Charles bayera, a merchant of Richmond,
testinsd that he, ia company with Joe San
derson and J. E. Ba'l, called upon Bob Ford
while he was held in jnil at St. Joseph for
killing Jepe James, aud that Ford then told
him that he killed Hite ; that Dick Little
was in one corntr of the room, .nd Hite cime
ri at a door ouposite and commenced firing.
Mrs. Bolcer, Ford'a sister, and her twochildrer
were in the third carutr, and he in the fourth,
near the staircase. As the room was filled
with smoke, he was afraid hiß sister would be
irjured, and drew his revolver and shot Hite,
killing him almost instantly. A rigid cro?s
examination failed to break down S«yer»'
testimony. Joseph Sanderson, a merchant
of Richmond, tejtifiad that he was with
Savers at St. Joseph, and corroborated the
lattei'« narration c<f the converaation. Mra.
Bi.ltcr testified that she was standing in the

Scarcely less injurious, in a subtle aud
generally unrecognized way, than the habit
of tokiut! "nips" of alcohol between
meals, is the growing practice of smoking
cigarettes incessantly. We have not a
word to say about smoking at suitable
tii ii t s and in moderation, nor do oar re
marks at this moment apply to the use of
cigars and pipes. It is against the habit of
smoking cigarettes in large quantities, with
the belief that these miniature doie; of
nicotine are innocuous, we desire to enter
a protett. The truth is that, perhaps ow
ing to the way the tohacco leaf in shredded,
coupled with the fact that it ia brought
iuto more direct relation with the mouth
and air passages thau when it is smoked in
a pipe or cigar, t!.e effects produced on the
nervous system by a free consumption of
cigarettes are mote marked and character
istic thau those recognizable after recourse
to other methods of smokine. A pulse
tracing made aft'.r the subject has smoked
fay a drz n cigarettes, will, as a rule, be
tl itter and more indicative of depression
than one taken after the smoking of
cigars. It is no uncommon practice fcr
young men who amoke cigarettes habitu
ally to conßume from eight to twelve in an
hour, and to keep this up for four or five
houra daily. The total quantity of tobacco
consumed may not seem large, but beyond
question the volume of smoke to which
tne breath organs of the Emokcr are ex
posed, and the characteristics of that smoke
as regards the proportion of nicotine intro
duced into the system, combine to place
the organism very fully under the influence
of the tobacco. A considerable uumbtr of
cases have been brought under our notice
during the last few months, in which
youths and young men who have not yet
completed thn full term of physical dcvtl
opment have had their health seriously im
paired by the practiceof almost incessantly
smoking cigarettes. It is well that the
facts should be known, as the impression
evidently prevails that any number of
these little "whiffle" rmut v ■„■".■< ba per

by rry mother — the "Ann Taylor" c(
"Origraa] Poems," "Hymns of Infant
Minds," ttc. — and that fcLe mentioLed the
name cf tho family concerned. Certain
circumttatces leil me to btlieve that the
family referred to was that of the Watkin
sonc, resident at Livenham, in Suffolk.
A son of this family had gone to Ameri
ca. One summer Sunday afternoon they
were attending service, and occupying i
large, square pew near the pulpit, in what
I take to have teen a nieetiDg-house. It
was hot, the door of the small buildirg was
wide open, and one of the party, who sat
looking down the ai6le, could see out into
the metting-honse yard, which was shaded
by tall trees. Suddenly, to his intense
surprise, he saw the absent brother ap
proaching through the trees, enter at the
chapel door, walk up the ais'e, ceme to the
very door of the pew itself, and lay his
hand upon it, as if to take bit seat among
them. At this moment others of the fam
ily, sitting to that he was only then within
their sight, saw him also, but at the same
moment he vanished.
This strange occurrence naturally raised
sad forcbouirgs, but in cenrse of time a let
ter arrived from the subject of them of
later date t'.ian that oi the vuion, and it
appeared that he was ttill alive and well.
He wa3 thfn written to, and a'ked if any
thing peculiar bad happened to him on
that particular Sunday. He rsplied that
it was odd he should remember anything
about a Sunday then so lons pissed, but
that certainly something peculiar had hap
pened to him that day. He had come hi,
overpiwercd with heat, and bad thrown
himself upon his b?d, had fallen into a
sound sleep, and had a strange dream. He
found him»elf among the trees before the
country chape! ; service was going on ; he
'iff them all, the door being open, sitting
in their pew ; he walked up the aislo, put
his hand on the pew door to open it, when
he suddenly, and to his great chagrin,
awoke. The question arises, Can ele>p re

We were running through South Caro
lina when a great big giint of a fellow with
a terrible eye ar.d a voice like a fog horn
boarded the train at a Mnail station. I
think most of the paß3en;ers sized him up
.is a chap whom it wonld be dangerous u>
ar^ue with, hat the giant wani'l eathiied
with tliat. 11-; blustered at the conductor,
growled at the brakeman, and looked
around as if seeking jome one to pick a
fnas with. Kvcry one answered him civ
illy, and he had two or three feats to hira-
Eelf, but the man who wants a row can
generally fiod eotne pretext. About the
center of the car a pale- looking chap, about
25 years old, occupied a seat and was read
ing a newspaper. After a time the giint
rubbed along to wheic the ycucg man eat
and ifiowled out :
11 > f .rangor, what may be the firbt cost of
auch a hat as yours ? '
The young man looktd up with a flash in
his big blue eyes, and then turned to h:s
paper without replying.
" iley ! Did you htar me?' roared the
other, aa he leaned over the seat and lifted
the hat eff the youug man's head.
Quicker than one could count six a shin
ing revolver came from, you couldn't tell
where, lifted itself on a level with the big
man's eye, and tha white fingers cln'ching
the bu'.t never trembled a hair's breadth ta
a quie? voice uttered the words :
"Drop that hat!"
The hat fell from the giant's grasp, and
the quiet voice exclaimed :
' Kaw you sit down, or I'll kill you f
Tne muzzle of the weapon was not six
inches from the man's eye, and I saw him
turn from red to white in ten seconds. He
backed away at the command, sat dorn in
a peat opposite, and sever stood up or
spoke another word during the ride of
twenty miles. He had a " navy " under
his coat, but something in that quiet voice
and blue eye warned him that the move of
a finger on his part would crash a bullet
into his head.— [M. Qaad.
