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
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.

The stomach and other oreans seemed to sympa

For a long time my life was despaired of, but at

By the advice of my physician I visited Poland

But they did me no good. Neither were the best

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

my opinion, saved my life. I consider it the best

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.
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.
It is predicted by some of the cheerful
Mormons that the cholera will spread in this

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

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

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,

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
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.

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. . '

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.

There are three States, Mississippi, Lou

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

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"

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
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
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.

A Losing Joke.
A prominent physician of Pittsburg to a lady
patient who was complaining of her continued ill
health and of his inabiliy to cure her, jokingly said:
"Try Hop Bitters i" The lady took it in earnest and
used the Bitters, from which she obtained perma
nent health. 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. And one single
bottle of Hop Bitters taken in time would save the
81,000 and all the year's sickness.
