Mr. H. D. Cooke, of the recently suspended firm

compromise to the creditors, looking toward the

that all claims under 1100 shall be settled at once,
and arrangements for this will soon be made.

a Crowbar Falls from the Tof of the Monument.?
as the roof of the Washington monument
approaches the apex the space between the sfc.es
gradually grows smaller, and the Inside edge of the
stones is now directly over the weil-hola Upon
the top of thfae stones o' the course being constructed
the workmen naturally place their tools
with which they work, and there is constant danger
of their being knocked off, thus making It possible
for an accident to visitors ascending In the
elevator. The other day a crowbar was accidentally
knocked over the edge, but It met with no obstruction
until It reached t e floor of the shaft, 52<
feet below. So great was Its speed that it lmbedde-.:
Itself six Inches tn the asphalt floor. Fortunately
the elevator was at the top of the shaft.

CUTICURA.
MRS. SMITH'S CASE. AND WHAT THE RF.V. MR.
McKlNSTBY If AS TO SAY ABOUT IT.
To THK PrBur:?T have l*>en a fearful sufferer for
fifteen j c^rs. most of the time with what has Xx-vu called
Eczema or Halt Rheum. Psoria-is and Lepra, aud t^e
.inO. aud have always bc?n told that there was no cure
for me. aud have bc<n so dis ourair.xl that / fuui n noon
f'elb?vebeen so bsdly afflicted sometimes
that tuere was not the smallest spot from the crown of
my head to the soles of raj" feet that was not diseased
and as red as crimson. It wouid commence in email
White spot-, which had a silvery a|<r*anmce, but were
not deer, but if I attempted to heai them, or soon after
Uieir first appearance, tbey would burn aud run toother
until there was a complete dry, red scale, which
would become so inflamed as to crack und look fiery and
u?rry. a:id tuo burning 8eu-i.ition would be almost intolerable,
1 was at times so !ame that I could scarcely <ret sbnat,
and could not divas myself without assistance. I have
tried many remedies, and have paid $100 in a single instance
to a physician, but have ovi-r obtained onlj- temporary
relief. Although helped for a time., I soon relapsed
a^ain to b<> as badly troubled as e ver, and during
the winter of 1881 and lt*2 I suffered so much as to be
entirely discouraged. Last June, however 1 was ad-'
Vised by Elder and .Mrs. L. M Rinstry. who are well
known in these regions, to try your Luricuiu Remedies,
and I felt somehow a little couratre. from their
favorable opinion of them, to try their virtue. About
the second week of July last I commenced taking the
remedies, and within six weeks I bejran to see a permanent
improvement, until now (October 1) lam about as
good as new, and my flesh is as the flesh of a child.
