Refuse to Use tb.o Books Provided by Law. Charleston, "W. Va., Dec. 14. The right of the state to enforce the law requiring the use in the public schools of text books recently contracted for and prescribed by the several county boards under the act passed last winter is likely to go into the courts for adjudication. Seth Thomas, a school teacher in Mason county, is using Rand & McXally's geog raphies, instead of Mitchell's, contracted for by the county board, and in Morgan county Qeorge H. Allemong, a teacher, ia using Harvey's grammars, published by the American Book company, instead of Hyde's language lessons, published by D. C. Heath & Co., the latter having been adopted by the county board. State Superintendent Trotter has noti fied these teachers that they must cease using books contrary to law, but, it i said, whether they obey the state superin tendent or not, the book concerns inter, ested will carry the matter to the courts for adjustment. TOLEDO BREWERIES SELL. New York Syndicate to Capitaliza at $5,000,000. Toledo, Dec. 14. An evening- paper says the five leading brewers of the city have been sold to a syndicate of New Yorkers for the aggregate sum of $3,750,000. Ex-Gov. James E. Campbell and J. F. Kumler of this city negotiated the deal. The eastern capitalists will operate the five concerns under one manage ment and Morgan is supposed to be at the head of the syndicate. A promoter named Perch is also connected with the transaction. The payments are to be made on a basis of 60 per cent in cash and the balance in stock, and upon re organization the company thus form ed will be recapitalized at $5,000,000. Bucklea'a Arnica Salve.

Ave. PAYMENT FOR SLAVES. 55 Virginia Men Petition Congress to Recoup Losses by Manumission. "Washington, Dec. 14. A remarkable petition was presented in the house yesterday by Representative Jones of Virginia. Fifty-five citizens of Nelson county in that state signed it. The document is a long argument favoring the re payment to the former slaveholders of the south the value of the slaves man umitted as a result of the war. Among the phrases descriptive of the tenor of the petition are the following: "Redress of grievances," "Passions of war have passed away sufficiently," "Severely taxed from the surrender of the confederate armies and denied rep resentation" (alluding to the period of reconstruction). The petitioners question the validity of the 14th amendment to the constitu tion. One of the points in this curious paper is contained in this extract: "From this depleted portion of our country $750,000,000 have been wrung through the internal revenue for pen sions, nearly all of which has been ex pended in another section." Mr. Jones is one of the two or three southern Democrats who make fre quent speeches at Friday night ses sions against the passage of private pension bills. To Cure a Cold in One Say.

Shayne Says the Commercial As sociation Will Gaurantee $150,000 for Filling Ic Chicago. Dee. 14. The $150,009 thought necessary for the successful prosecu tion of the work of filling in the Lake Front park is to be provided by the Chicago Commercial association, and a formal tender of the money is to be made to the south park commissioners at a meeting to be held at the Union League club soon. "We will meet Mr. EUsworth and his colleagues," said John T. Shayne yes terday. "We will make a business proposition at that meeting. The money to fill in the submerged lands and $1,500,000 be sides will be guaranteed. The latter sum will be expended on the proposed building for a permanent exposition." "I think the plan is a feasible one," said President Ellsworth. "I have no doubt of the board's acceptance, and that the exposition building win be ready in time for next fall's proposed exposition. "It is proposed to erect the building on the northern portion of the land, and there will probably be no serious objection to it. I do not think Mont gomery Ward's injunction as to build ing extends beyond the old Lake Front park land, on the west of the. tracks." HIGH PRICED APPLES. AN INDEPENDENT LORD. Rockefeller Paid $14 a Barrel for Some Fine Ones. New Tork, Dec. 14. John D. Rock efeller, in passing through Buffalo re cently learned that a dealer in the Elk street market had a small lot of about the finest apples ever put on sale in this vicinity. Rockefeller stopped off, hunted up the dealer and astonished him by tak ing the apples at $14 a barrel. When the dealer recovered from his surprise he set about keeping the trade in sight. He was not long in discover ing that at least a portion of New York's wealthy men were willing to pay bonanza prices for eatables that were on a grade above the ordinary market run. G. A. Van Hall, the leading Druggist of Butler. Mo., writes: "We are hav ing splendid success with Beggs Blood Purifier and Blood Maker. It is one of the best sellers we ever had and gives satisfaction to all who have tried it. We take pleasure -in recommending it. At druggists.

Beresfoid Causes Consternation in English Society by Satirizing the Power of Money Over It. London, Dec. 14. Lord Charles Ber esford has caused an unpleasant sen sation in the highest social circles of England by a characteristically cou rageous denunciation of society's worship of wealth. Speaking of the Vagabond club an nual dinner, as the guest of the even ing he declared: "Money is everything now among us. Money will buy access to what is known as the very best society. Let anybody come to England with enough money, no matter whether it has been gained honorably or disgracefully, and there is no door which he cannot hope to enter. "In the old days it was not so, but money is destroying our old pride and our old chivalry. When a man in the 'best' society commits a dishonorable act indeed, a crime that society bands itself together to screen him instead of hanging him to a tree and easting his body into the ditch." Lord Charles prophesied the ruin of the empire unless the domination of money can be overthrown. The allusion to Lord William Ne ville's swindling of young spender Clay is not more pointed than to the Prince of Wales' partiality for the "nouveaux riches," and both are bitterly resented by smart society; but Lord Charles is no respecter of persons in such matters and, socially, he is independent of the patronage of the Prince of Wales or any coterie, however smart.

Twenty-four hu man heads have been stolen from the Western Pennsylvania Medical college in the last three weeks. There were two or three heads missing today when the time came for the demonstration in dissection. The work of the present term began about a month ago. The demonstrator, Dr. Ellis S. Montgomery, assigned "the parts" of the bodies to the first, sec ond and third year men in the school. It has been customary to put six stu dents at work dissecting one body. The man who was assigned to trie work on the head was the one to suffer. Just about the time he had it in ex cellent shape to study under the knife he would enter the dissecting room the next morning only to find the head 1 gone. It was a common thing to hear tne expression: " "Well, my head was swiped last night." This stealing gave the demonstrator as well as the students, trouble. Dr. Montgomery had nothing for a practi cal examination on the work of the student. When the student lost his head he lost the time he had expended in study and work on it. Some of the students, rather than lose their heads, saw off the top of them. ' No one usually desires a skull that is thus mutilated. They want a skull that can be subjected to boiling, and come out nice and white, and be used for studying the bone formation, and later for a tobacco box case or similar receptacle.
