Many people, after a long spell of
opprcssivo heat, suffer from lassi
tude, loss of spirits, and a general
"run down" feeling. They need a
courso of Ayer's Sarsaparllla, a
tncdlcino which has revived and
, restored to nctivo life and health
, thousands of such sufferers. A lady
recently returned to England from
South Africa writes concerning this
"While in Capo Town tho past
summer I suffered greatly from the
long-continued heat. I was com
pletely worn out ; my blood seemed
to becomo as thin as water, and I
lost all energy and interest in life.
My friends recommended Ayer's
Sarsaparllla, and a courso of this
wonderful mcdlcino restored my
health and spirits. My husband suf
fered in tho sumo way as I did,
though not to such an extent, and
bo nlso was greatly benefited from

Olivor O. Winthrop, who was
convictod and sentenced by Judge
Wallace to life imprisonment
about one year ogo, wos removed
to San Quoutin yesterday, says tho
Call of May 3.
Winthrop is tho man wbo, with
tho mysterious "Pete," took Mil
lionaire Campbell of Hawaii out
to n cottngo oil California street,
and there held and tortured him
in tbe hope of compelling hiin to
pay big ransom for his lifo and
liberty. Previous to this occur
rence Winthrop was tried aad ac
quitted for the poisoning of Jen
nie Mathews, a woman whom be
met in Laurel Hill Cemetery
while he was acting in the capaci
ty of assistant superintendent.
After his conviotion for the
Campbell crime his lawyer peti
tioned the Supreme Court for a
writ of probable cause, pending
an appeal and the settling of a
bill of exceptions before tbe trial
Judge. On this showing the
higher court granted a temporary
restraining order on the Sheriff
not to remove Wmtbrop from tbe
County Jail until the further order
of the oourt.
In conspquence of an ambiguity
of the wording of tbe restraining
order tho prisonor remained in the
Broadway jnil until yesterday,
when Chief Jailer Satler notified
him to get ready for a trip across
the water to Marin County. At
this notification Winthrop got
saucy, and said there was not
power enough in tbe City to re
move him, as tbe Supremo Court
bad permitted him to remain un
til his case should be decided by
'"In this, .however, he was mis
taken, as he has since discovered,
for he slept within tbe sumo in
closure as Theodore Durrant and
somo hundreds of wicked men
last night, and this morning he
will appear in his new striped
suit, which will adorn his person
for the balance of his life.

THE KlURIEI.'tt TRIP.
Now Hold the riecord for the Fail
cut Round Trip.
While tbo steamers and sailing
vessels bound north were "buck
ing into" tbe storm tho handsome
new schooner Muriel was making
record time with a cargo of sugar
from Hawaii, says the Call of
May 3. Yesterday morning at 2
o'clock she was twenty - seven
miles southwest of tbe Faralloues
and four hours later sho was at
anchor in port. Fourteen knots
an hour is not bad time for a sail
ing vessel. The Muriel has made
tbe round trip in thirty-five days,
thus beating the record of tbe
John D. Sprockets, the fastest
brig afloat. The fact that the Mu
riel is almost a new vessel and
that tbe John D. has not been on
the drvdook for nearly a year
should betaken into consideration.
Given an equal show it should bo

Captain Carlson of the Muriel
again succeeded in evading pilot
ago yesterday. His schooner out
ran tbo pilot-boat, and in conse
quence the pilots bad not a chance
to Bpeak to her. Tho Muriel has
made bix trips to this port, and on
four of them Captain Carlson has
made port without paying pilot
age. When it is known that the
Muriel outsailed the crack pilot
boat Bonita it can easily be seen
that she is a fast boat.
