When we take pen in hand to write an adver tisement in these days, with the purpose of let ting our friends know what things we are selling cheap so much occurs to us that we dont know where to be gin, and we Jeel we should need to use at least a whole page of a paper. But we cant afford that, so we have to pick out just a few ite?ns. The first that we would name to-day is the item of Ham burg Em broideries. When we came to this stock in the course of our marking down ope rations a protest was made by those in charge that reduction was not needed, as our prices had been again and again proved to be lower than those of all our competitors. But all the same we did reduce them, and heavily too. Another stock which we ptit away down, very far below the ordinary trices, was th at of White Cambric Trim mings, in puffing, tuck ing, ruffling and com binations of these. We made also a great many reductions on White Muslin Underwear. The prices on otcr Para sols haye 'been a good deal talked about, some of the manufac turers -blaming us for having" spoilt the trade" too early. But that is our affair. Since last week we. have put some of them dow7i even lower than they were. Eider down Jersey Cloth in light colors for dressing gowns, infants' sacks, &c, is another article they say we are selling too cheap. W e have over a dozen pretty styles in it. We mention these things because we did not refer to them in our previous adve rtise ments; btit it must not be forgotten that by far the most important bar gains to be got from us at this sale are those .in Dress Goods and Silks. And all the numerous other things we mentioned before are still selling at the same extremely low prices, or lower, except in so far as any lots may have beeH closed out. 1 CLxxcutian.

Dear Sir: I think it is due to vou that I should make the following statement, and I make it volun tarily and willingly: On the 4th day of June, 1881, I was taken with what was called paralysis of the bowels. Tne seizure was unexpected ana terrioie. The stomach and other oreans seemed to sympa thize with it and to have lost all cower of action. For a long time my life was despaired of, but at lengtn i recovered so rar as to De aoie to riae out. By the advice of my physician I visited Poland Snriners CVtX honimr to benefit from the waters. But they did me no good. Neither were the best nhvsicians of Lowell and Boston, whom I consulted. able to afford me more than transient relief. I gained no strength and my case appeared almost hopeless. In the fall a friend advised me to try KENNEDY'S FAVORITE REMEDY, and although opposed to patent medicines, I made the trial. To make a lone storv short FAVORITE REMEDY, in my opinion, saved my life. I consider it the best preparation in the world for stomach difficulties, as well as of the Liver and other organs. I am glad to say it is in general use among the railroad men in una vicinity. x ours, clc., a. i . wir Mr. Gifford is the Master Mechanic of the Lowell division of the Boston & Lowell Railroad, and his illness and recovery are known to many who can testify to the facts in his letter.

B Allf E, or IHalne. FOB VTCE PRESIDENT, JOHN A. OGAN, of mill!. THE PANAMA CANAL, Before De Leesepa began work on 'the Panama canal thef were many who doubted that he would get money enough to begin, because it seemed to them that the scheme was a wild one. But the indomitable old man got the money he wanted, and the great work is well under way. Ent the doubt as to its feasibility baa not yet been re moved. As our readers will remem ber, a government officer recently . made a report in which he showed the almost if not quite insuperable obstacles in the way of the canal diggers. And now comes the Panama Star and Herald, a paper which would not with out reason discredit an enterprise which, dur ing its progress and much more after its ac complishment, must add greatly to the wealth and importance of the city where it is published, and says that there is a growing conviction in the minds of many peo ple that no private company can carry the canal to successful com pletion; that it is evident that the cost will reach ten times the sixty million dollars subscribed, and the possibility of obtaining money enough from private sources is very small; that if the work receives no governmental aid it will scarcely be well under way before the funds will be exhausted, and it must of course be aban doned, when there would be an opportunity for the government to step in and finish it. These doubts are suggested simply by the magnitude of the work, without reference to its peculiarly baffling and perplexing difficulties. Another reason for distrust the retirement from the enterprise of Mr. Richies, late the superior agent of the canal cempany, who says that there has been gross misrepresentation of the amount of work done and to be done, that the company has refused to rectify the error, and he therefore is unwilling to continue in its service and aid in deceiving the public by his silence. He says that the first calculations on the canal level are so far wrong that some 40,000,000 more cubic metres of earth must be removed than were ordinarily provided for, at an ex- cense of S62.000.000 in cold. More over, it has been found that tide-level canal through the isthmus will be impossible by reason of the uncontrollable currents that would rush through it. To overcome this obstacle a system of tide basins and docks will have to be constructed at Panama and below it at cost of $30,000,000. These are assertions which even the en thusiastic De Lesseps will find hard to deal with. If they are correct the great canal will not be finished in four years, as De Les seps said it would, .and it is doubtful if it is finished in forty years. EDITOBIAL MOTES. Confidence is said to be a plant of slow growth, but there has been nothing slow about its apparent growth in Wall during the last three or four days. street It is predicted by some of the cheerful Mormons that the cholera will spread in this country as a divine retribution for the re appointment of Governor Murray. If there is anv retribution about the cholera Salt Lake City is not a very safe place. President Bruce of the Massachusetts State Senate is reported as saying that it looks to him as if the bottom were about to drop out of the Democratic party in Massachusetts, and he reports that in his own city of Somerville the Butler men of last fall who are falling away from the Cleveland banner will be counted by hundreds. On all European railroads there are first, second and third-class fares for passenger traffic. The third-class fares yield the larg est margin of -profit. During the last ' ten years the rates have been generally reduced, and it has been found that the reduction na invariably increased traffic enormously, even peasants, who formerly did not dream of traveling, indulging m the luxury ot ricung behind the iron horse. The Central Park Sunday concerts in New York have proved so popular, in spite of the opposition to them, that it is now proposed to have additional music in Tompkins square for the benefit of those who cannot spare, the time to go to Central Park. One" business firm which employs a large number of the 1,800 working men and women who have signed the petition for music in the square, offer to defray the expense of a first-class band until September 1, if there is no money in the hands -f is. park commissioners for the purp. -e A recent deciaion by an English judge is interesting to "educators. In the case decided a boy had been kept after school hours for failure in a lesson he had been di rected to prepare at home. His parents had forbidden his studyir 5 out of school hours, and they brought action against the school master for assault. The magistrates dis missed the case, but the Queen's bench re versed the judgment, holding that the dete' tion amounted to an assault in law, becausa the child had been punished for not doing what the master had no right to order him to do. The Spaniards are not satisfied with their navy, which consists of five ironclads, an ironclad monitor, a floating battery, and 117 other vessels. The navy possesses besides 35 gunboats for the protection of the Isthmus of Cuba and Porto Rico. According to the new proposals, tlsa r organization of the fleet ought to be completed in ten years, at the end of which time Spain would possess 12 ironclads, 2 ironclad cruisers, 7 first-class cruisers, 9 second-class cruisers, 11 third class cruisers, 32 orpedo boats, and 6 trans ports. A sum of 230,000,000 pesetas(about$46, 000,000), to be spent in ten years, is demand ed from the governm-ant. The United States ought to have as good a navy aa Spain. M. Pasteur's wonderful experiments with the virus of hydrophobia are going on with unbroken success. He has thus far experi mented on fifty-seven dogs, nineteen of them mad and thirty-eight bitten under uniform conditions. Of these thirty-eight half had been puviously inoculated, the other half not. The latter, without a single exception, died with unmistakable signs of hydropho bia, whereas the nineteen others are as well as ever. They will be watched for a year by veterinary doctors to see whether the inocula tion holds good permanently or only tempo rarily. M. Pasteur's theory is that hydro phobia is produced solely by the bite, and if this is correct a law compelling all dogs to be inoculated would in the end extirpate hy drophobia entirely, whereas if the disease arises spontaneously such an enactment would be leas effectual. . ' "Jersey justice" is famous, and Rhode Is land justice is in a fair way to become so. On the 22d day of last April "William Henry Shea of Newport- deliberately and wilfully murdered Eugene Barker, formerly a police officer of that city. ' He was arrested, a grand jury summoned with reasonable prompti tude, and an indictment for murder was brought against Shea. Upon this the prison er went before the Supreme court of the State and asked for a change of venue. The full bench heard the case, at reasonable length, took a reasonable time to consider it and denied the petition. July 16th Shea was put to trial, a reasonable amount of time was given to the evidence and the arguments and on the 18th of July, just two days later, he was convicted of murder in the first de gree and sentenced to the State prison for life, that being the severest penalty allowed by the laws of Rhode Island. This kind of work could be profitably imitated in Connec ticut. Two hundred and seventy-eight thousand desertions from the Union army were record ed during the war. A recent act of Con gress provides for the relief of "certain soldiers from the charge of desertion." The Secretary of War is authorized to relieve from this charge any volunteer who served six months, provided "such soldier served faith fully a until the expirhtion of his term of enlistment, or until May 1, 1865, or was pre vented from so serving by wounds received or disease contracted in the line of duty, and provided that no soldier shall be relieved who, not being sick or wounded, left his command without proper authority while in the presence of the enemy." The secretary is also authorized to relieve from this charge any soldier (volunteer or regular) who re turned to his command within reasonable time (probably 30 days will be the limit) and served to the end of his term or of the war faithfully, or until discharged; also in the case of death of wounds or disease while ab sent, before their commands were mustered out; also and finally in the case of furloughed soldiers dying from injuries or disease con tracted in the line of duty, before their com mands were mustered out. Certificates of discharge will be issued to such soldiers and in case they served six months their claim to pay and bounty becomes valid. It is estimated that about 110,000 will be en titled to relief under this act, and it will take a large sum of money to pay the claims. SHINING.

Extract from Senator Hoar's Boston Speech What tne "Independent" Who Votes ror Cleveland Votes to Sanction and Assist. There are three States, Mississippi, Lou isiana and South Carolina, to say nothing of others, in which, beyond all question, the electoral vote recorded at the coming elec tion will have no relation whatever to the will of the people. Unless the brave and gal lant white men who are acting with Mahone can win just ice from the fears of Democrats, we must add to these States Virginia. These three States cast twenty-six electoral votes: with Virginia they cast forty. Now giving to Governor Cleveland all the States that his enthusiastic supporters can hope for, he will fall far short of an election, unless the votes of these States, wrested from their Republican majorities by crime and fraud, be counted in ms ravor. The young reformer who votes for Cleve land cannot help to elect him. He can onlv 1 1 A . 1 . I . " neip w uuulb jjuBsiuie tne successrui accom plishment of the crime by which a minority snau usurp me government ot tne country, The process is very simple and familiar. It is known as the Mississippi plan. Violence and murder are made use of until the minor ity get the election offices into their hands. and thenceforth the ascendency is maintained by the easier way of tissue ballots and fraud ulent counting. These things will scarcely do denied uy a soucnern .Democrat m private. The leading Democratic papers in each of these States I have named, The Charleston News in South Carolina, The New Orleans Picayune in Louisiana, The Richmond State In Virginia, The Vicksburg Post in Mississip pi, have in substance admitted these facts, and all but the last have vindicated them as a necessity. You tell me Governor Cleveland is not re sponsible for these things. You know very well that he is seeking to obtain the presi dency at the price of these things. If he were to declare in a manner that showed that he was in earnest tnat ne would, if President, use the power vested in him for their sup pression, or if he should declare,as an honest man should do, that he would not take an office gained by such means, he could not get Democratic vote south of Mason and Dix on's line. - My friends, and I know whereof I speak. I was charged a few months ago with the duty of investigating the election methods in the State of Mississippi. It was not a question of negro supremacy. Some six or seven hun dred white men had got tired of the Democra cy and had joined the Republicans to form an Independent party in Copiah county, Mis sissippi. A band of 150 men, all Democrats composed, as was admitted, of the best citi zens, armed with rifles and shot guns.mount ed,rode about that county for a fortnight be fore election. They visited the dwellings of large numbers of Republicans in the night time. Some they murdered in their homes. Others they flogged and otherwise abused. From many they extorted pledges that they would vote the Democratic ticket. They broke up Republican meetings. They mads night hideous with cannon. This went on till the Republican voters in large numbers fled to the woods, and the Democratic minor ity had an easy victory in the election. The commander of this band was one Wheeler, and his lieutenant one Bailey. The day before election the armed com pany waited upon Print Matthews, the lead ing Republican of the county. Matthews was the principal citizen of the county, a wealthy merchant, with two sons in college, and two grown daughters in his house. He was generous, brave, a liberal benefactor of schools and churches. No man ever asked hi" for a favor and was refused. The Demo cratic witnesses testified that everybody liked him if it were not for his politics. They drew up in the road near his gate and sent him a demand in writing that he should ab stain from voting the next day. He answered the messenger: "It seems to me this is a very strange thing in a republican govern ment. I have tried to be useful to society every way that I could. I have never done toy of you any harm. I admit that it is in your power to murder me, but I am going to vote to-morrow unless you do kill me." Matthews went to the polls and cast ihe first vote in the morning. As he placed it in the box, Wheeler, who was the Democratic challenger, shot him dead with the charge of one barrel in the heart and another just be low the throat. The sound of the gun was heard by Matthews' wife and daughter as they sat in the porch of their home. There was a mass meeting the next day, in which exultant resolutions were passed, declaring that if any attempt were made to revenge Matthews' death, his relatives should be held responsible, warning his family to keep out of politics in future, declaring that "Copiah shakes hands with Yazoo;" and ad journing to meet at the call of the chairman of the Democratic committee. Yazoo is the county so notorious for election frauds and crimes, where Dixon was shot in the back a few years ago. These resolutions were in the hand writing of the Democratic district at torney. Bailey, the second in command, made a boastful speech, describing the method by which they had carried the county. He drew a pistol and said, "We took along something like this. It is the best method of electioneering I ever have seen. If those men who have left us do not come back to us, I believe you will kill them out without mv advice." Wheeler, the murderer, was made city marshal of Hazelhurst a few weeks after, and Riley.his lieutenant, is, I am told, the Democratic candidate for presidential" elector. Such, my innocent college president and venerable doctor of divinity, is the way your Democratic allies treat Independent move ments in Mississippi. CAGING A TIGER. How Tbey Perform the Feat at Singa pore. From the Field. The interest of the community of Singa pore was lately excited by the announcement that a fine tiger had been captured in a pit situated in a Chinaman's garden. The pit in which the tiger was caught was circular and measured eleven feet deep and three feet in diameter, contracting silently at the bottom. It was dug in sandy clay, and as the sides were clean cut, the tiger was not able to escape by scrambling up. Ihe situa tion was on the marcrin of a jungle forest. and the pit along with others had been dug for the purpose of capturing wild pigs. These pits are covered with thin sticks and grass or leaves, so that any unwary animal is quite unaware of the unsound state of the ground. As soon as the owner of the pit into which the tiger had fallen was aware of his prize, he covered the mouth of the pit with strong planks and at once looked around tor a pur chaser, wno was soon touna. ine sum 01 $125 was paid for the tiger as it lay at the bottom of the pit, and it afterward cost $50 to have mm caged and conveyed to ouiga pore. For nearly six days the poor captive lay in the pit (beine fed very sparingly so as to re duce his energy), and the operation of caging the tiger was put into the hands of six Malays, who, as a race, are noted for their knowledge of woodcraft and of the habits of animals. The manner in which the Malays worked Was much to be admired. very arrange ment was most complete, so that no accident could in all human probability occur. There seemed no fear and no hurry, while in addi tion to their endeavors to bring their labors to a successful conclusion, they seemed to have thorough sympathy with the victim, whom they treated as gently as possible. The first thing done was to rig up a strong beam at a height of about nine feet over the hole, and this was supported on well-secured uprights, to which it was securely lashed with withes. Next there were prepared two cylindrical baskets made of green rattan. One of these baskets measured two feet in diameter and eight feet long. The other was made just sufficiently large to be passed into the larger one, for the purpose of giving additional strength. One end of each basket was open, while the other was closed, with the excep tion of a hole about three inches in diameter. the use of which will be afterwards explained Having jammed the smaller basket into the larger one, the walls or both were family laced together throughout with withes, to avoid any chance of slipping. Finally, two new hemp ropes two and three-quarter inches in circumference were prepared with running nooses. Small pieces of stick were passed through the rope as stoppers, to prevent the loop from running betore required to ao so. As soon as a few long poles were cut and prepared, with a fork on some, and pieces of wood lashed on others to form hooks, all was ready for the operation. The planks covering the mouth of the pit were then slightly separated to admit of the ropes and poles being passed down. The noose of one of the ropes was lowered on to the tiger's head, which intrusion he resisted violently; but, by skill and patience, the Malays managed to get the noose over the tiger's head and around his neck. This was effected by manceuvering his paws and mouth with the poles. As soon as the noose was in position it was drawn tight enough to prevent its being removed by the prisoner. The other rope was then passed down and secured in a similar manner. The operation of placing the two nooses around the neck occupied twenty-three minutes. The ends of the ropes were then passed through the cylindrical baskets. The baskets were then placed mouth downwards over the pit, and when all was secure and ready, the word to haul was given, and the tiger was drawn up head foremost into the basket, which was only large enough to receive him, and thus he was unable to struggle with ef fect. As soon as he was well into the basket, the whole was drawn up and then laid on its side, when the mouth of the basket was at once laced up, leaving nothing but the tiger's tail protruding. When all was fast the nooses around his throat were slackened, so as to admit of his breathing freely. The nooses were, however, still left around his neck for after operations. The basket was now slung on a pole, and, with its contents, borne where a cage was in readiness to receive him. A Monnment that Blossoms. From the Lewiston, Me., Journal. A Journal reporter wandered down to J. B. Ham's grist mill Tuesday. On the window sill of the office was a bunch of vigorous red roses the old-fashioned single roses with great yellow centers and petals of solid sun shine. Such roses as grow rank in natural beauty in the old-fashioned country garden amid tiger lilies, "chiny aster," and mari golds, and whose loveliness to many is dear to the memory. Ex-Mayor Ham walked up to the bench and said: "Yes, sir, they are beautiful roses, and these roses have a history. I have picked bunches of roses from that bush every year without fail for nearly,if not quite, 50 years. The bush grows on the old place of my great grandfather, Caleb Barker, on the Lisbon road. He was one of the first settlers there the pioneer. He was my mother's grandfather. He planted the rose bush. Nobody knows where he died or when he died, or where he was buried. We have no record but his name. Nobody is alive who knew him. This is a good subject for a poet, ain't it? This rose bush was full of flowers year after year, never failing, receiv ing no care, but budding and blossoming for 1 that. Everybody around there says that Caleb Barker planted it over a hundred years ago. It blooms in memory of him. A grave stone would have fallen down and been buried, but that great, glorious bunch of roses Caleb Barker's rose bush is just as beautiful as it ever was. A strange thing about it, too, is the freedom of the bush from insects and vermin. There is not a worm to be found on the bush." . The blossoms are the largest single roses we ever saw.

She now laughp at the doctor for his joke, but he is not so well pleased with it. as it cost htm a good patient. Fees of Moetors. The fees of doctors at 3 a visit would tax a man for a year and in need of a daily visit over $1,000 a year for medical attendance alone.
