It affords me pleasure to assure you that
after using Dr. C. McLane's Celebrated Liver
Pills tor more than twenty yeart in my fam
ilj, that I regard them as being superior to
any I have ever used or have aesn used. I
have not had them constantly, and had to
try others, and I have tried a good variety,
but I have never had any to act so promptly,
profitably, and nicely as McLane's. I have
used hem on myself, wife and children,
with the most gratifying results. For chil
dren, having used them on my ewnwith such
easy and happy effect, I would recommend
them to one and all. These pills do the
work do it promptly, do it well, and leave
no ill effects behind. As a bile remover, as
a liver corrector, as a forerunner preparing
the system lor quinine, tbere is so pill or
medicine equal to Dr. C. McLane's Cele
brated Liver Pills. I expect to ust them as
long as I live, if they continue at good as
they have been in the past. Years truly,

Sfnsa'iorjB thin spring Jo not appear
to come singly but in gtonps. It mast
be ic tbe ttmoBphere. Not a z?phyi
j fans tbe cheek but it whispers a
scandal in the ear, some youDg, some
old and others in full bloom. Tbe
la a t morsel which Dame (Jow ip baa
rolled under her tongue must have
! been an unusually sweet one, as she
: kept it Sfcurely hidden t here for (our
I whole rays and night. It was an
I affair exactly in line with the fashiona
! ble err zo for tbe Japanese a per
! verted sort of Wtadu with new
and livelier music, and a cast
including a philosophical Koko,
a Ro-as-vou-please Kanki-Pooh, and
a Katieha whose very elboT mn
go miles to see. And while there wai
no boiling oil in tbe last act of all there
was at least one scene in which tbe
entire company was in hot water.
There are more acta in it than in the
f-teorotyped Mikado, and the epilogue
is yet to be played. To tut it plainly
there has been a scandal which prom
ises to end with a suit for divorce.
On Saturday last Mr Robert A.
Young, who has resided n Memphis
all his life and is pretty veil known,
followed his wife to a house of unsavory
reputation, and, entering, discovered
her and Mr.W. J. fcteple hidden there,
in full drass, insepaiate r.Jotrs, and yet
under circumstances which demanded
au explanation. Criminations acd
recriminations were indulged in, no
bloo i was shed, and the putties in in
ters went their several wiyj. How
it tirtt got out cannot be ssid, but it
became the town talk yesterday, and
there was nothing to be di ne except
to gt the facts aud K'vetliem. An Ap
peal reporter, during tbe course of
the day, called upon all the parties
affected and gives each the bene lit ol a
Mr. R. A.
"The all air has completely crushed
me," raid Mr. Young. I luve done
all any man could do f r bis wife, and
though I have frequently suspected
her, have fried to believe that I did
her an injustice. I believe 1 ran
truthfully say she baa bad nothing to
complain of in tbe eight years we
have been married. Four or five
years ago I found two letters in tbe
hem of her dress, which caused
trouble between n". We separated,
but I went back to live with her again,
still hoping that there had been noth
ing rially criminal. For some time I
have beard or seen nothing which
caused me to suspect her, 1 ot lately a
great many anonymous letters have
been sent me. Last Saturday I learned
that Steele had made an tppointment
through the telephone in my own
house to meet my wifetbat evening.
I went borne to dinner, and found her
dressed to go out. She said she in
tended to pay a visit to a relative on
Court street, and I offered to walk up
town with her. At the corner of
Madison and Second Btreets we sera
rated. It wag drizzling rain, and I
gave her the umbrella. She went on
up Second street, and I went down
into tbe telegraph office, but im
mediately came out aa;ain and
watched htr until she turned
into Court street, then I followed.
She turned nortl' when she
reached Fourth street, uni I bad to
double up to keep from being discov
ered I met a gantleman friend who
spoke to me, and whom, as I aftei ward
learned, carelessly told my wife when
be passed her that be bad just seen
me. Bat she seems to have been
blind to the warcing and went on out
J flerson to Charleston avenue, turned
back into Court and walked back up
Court street. I had to run to keep up
with ber, and noticed teat she ap
peared to be a little anxious,
fieuuently turning half round
an proceeding very slowly
She finally darted into one of the
heusea on the nortL aide of the street,
bnt I could not determine with cer
tainty which one it was. I aikt d a
darky if he knew who lived about
tbere. and he said be knew none ex
cept o!d Aunt Easter Mosby, the
keeper of an assignation-house, which
be pointeJ out to me. At this mo
ment Deputy-Sheriff Taylor passed,
and I stopped him. I wanted bitn to
go in with me, telling him I had seen
my wife go in there, but he said he
could do nothing without papers and
left me. As ha went away tbe old
woman approached with some kindling
wood in her hand. I asked her if Bhe
knew who was in the bouse and she
said she did not. but airreed to eo in
with me. I had nothing in my hand
bnt my umbrella, and wanting notn
ing elbe, but I walked in, opened i
door at the lower end of tbe 'a'
tice porch and found a woman
dretssd in mourning, lying on a bcj.
I raited up tbe cover which hung
down over the footboard, and on the
floor lyirg at full length discovered a
man. He did not move or Bpeak.and
I did not aik his name nor see his
face, out passed on into the front
room through a communicating door.
Tbere I saw my wife's umbrella and
hand bag on a chair. I imme
diately went to the closet door, opened
it and pushing atide a lot of women's
clothes, which bung on the wall, dis
covered Laura standing there. I at
once walked back into the other room
and snapping my fingers, called to the
man under tbe bed to come out. He
was out, had bis hat tin and stood be
fore me before I recognized him.
"Steele," I said, "what have I ever
done to you. and Laura, what com-
plair.t have you against me, that yon
should ruin my happiness in this
way. They couldn't say beans. I
talked to them some time, and Steele
at last asked me what I proposed to do
abent ic. I didn't know, and asked
him if he could not suggest some
thing He said he could not, and ad
ded, that the affair might forever re
main a secret if I desired it. He left
the houte and I followed with my
wife. That is the whole story. I
have not seen her since, but I bear
that she talks of going to a convent. I
will place ber in one if she desires it,
but must insist upon having the
Ira. Young's Hiatement.
Daring the evening a visit waa paid
to tbe residence of Mr. Young, No. 33
Avery street, modest two Btorjr
brick. Mrs. Yourg was at home, and
ushered th-reporter into a well-furnished
parlor. She was neatly dressed
m D'ain black, and though perfectly
calm Bee toed to have been shedding
"I suppose you are aware that your
name is being rather freely used," tbe
"No, but I can guess what they sre
talking about. I have nothing to say
against Mr. Yonng cr anybody else.
1 am willing to give bim my propert
and tbe children end re'ire to a con-
vent. If nothing interferes I shall
lea-e Saturday night."
"Still you do not denv having met
"No. I tf Wrphed him last Satur
day, and met him that evening at a
place tf ilUtcputc on Court Tet, but
am as pure a) I was l et 're I went
"Why did yon go?"
"Mt nsme has been coupled with
his a great deal, and my husband baa
a'.wa)s been suspicious of him. 1
wanted t) ta'k matters over with him
and put a stop t it. That wa all. I
did not know tho character of the
place to which he took top, or I would
never have gone. I snppoce be most
have intended to ruin rat reputation."
ll.iw did Mr. Young find it cut?"
"lie hires a negto woman here to
attend to all the housekeeping who
does not like me. She told him, and
be followed me."
"How long bad yon been in the
house when he entered '"
"Not five minutes. I waa sittirg
talking to Mr. Steele, ith my bat on
and bag in my band, when Mr. Steele
grabbed me, told me to stay where I
wrsand ran. I M od still, and Mr.
Yonng came in. I would have gone
to meet him if I had kroar i be was in
"What passed alter be discovered
you and Mr. Steele?''
' Very tit le was said, I knew that
appearances weie against me, and did
not try to explain. I simply told him
I was as pure as when I entered the
hoube, ai d Mr. Steele told him the
"And you say you vere never at
the house before?
"And yn did not rlsit a similar
house on Ht, Martin stiet about a year
"Did you know your lame wat con
nected with those i f a roien or more
men about town?"
"No. They are all liffl."
Mrs. Young d'ttplnyttl no sign of
excitement and said good evening a
coldly as though she was anything
except tbe heroine of a rather ugly
utr. sileele Npsaka.
The unwilling htro, Mr. Will J.
Steele, was found, coatnas, up to his
elbows in cotton eamplei at his place
of business. It was plait that he felt
keenly annoyed by tbe unpleasant
position in wnicb he had been place j.
"I do not claim to be an? better or
any worse tbaa other men of my age,"
said M '. 8teele. "I have been indis
creet. I have committed two siiia
one of them ia consenting to a c'an-
deatine meeting, the other in be
ing caught. On the whole, I
have good reason lo be heart
ily ashamed of nyself, but I
have determined to br it and hope
the affair will not ruin lie. Tha simple
truth is, that Mrs. Y)ung baa tele
phoned once or twice erery week, beg
gin me to tee her, and I have ro
tated on every occasion. Last Satur-
ay she telephoned tnstli 1 would see
er that evening Bhe would not trou
ble me again, and I yieldad. I don't
think I am doing the lady's reputation
any harm when I sny that she has
been in the habit ci meeting other
men than her husband. A few
minutes sft-r I entered the house
saw her hue-band nt the
sate and telling Mm Yomw to hide
herself, I made in efoit to get t ut ol
the WBy, as might have Deen expecou
under the circumstances. He dis
covered hp, but didn't seem oispoS"d
to do anything about it, and I left ihe
place. I know I will he censured, but
I shall take my medicine, bit'rr as it
is, with as good a grace as I can."
Old Allot KnMrr.
A dim light burned in a ba'.:k-rooin
wbeu the reporter knocked at the door
of the houfe on Court street. The old
woman sat in the room in which Mr.
StBrfle was discovered.
"Pretty dark pla e you have here,"
"Yes," she said, "I never care to see
the faces of the people who come
here. I make it a rule never t know
any more than I nan help. A great
many come In and go out and I never
know who they ate."
"But y n know who waa here last
"Oh yes sir. I am sarry that hap
pened in my bouse." '
"What occurred ?"
"Well, I went out and was gone
over half an hour aud when I came
back a gentleman was standing at the
gate. He asked me to come in with
him and I came. He found a man
under the bed there and bis wife hid
den in the closet. Thev talked awhile
and then went away. I didn't want
to hear what they said."
"Were either of them ever in your
"1 ees .nearly all the men and I
know neither of them were here be
fore. I don't son any of the ladiea
who come here."

"Siuce the last session a second Sec-
uie lommkteH Iioh anppietiientcd the
expositions of the first committee. All
tbe transe.ctiois o' every gas company
in New Yurk, from the first, in 1H-3,
to the pressnt time have been ex
posed. It is shown that the inordi
nately excessive earnings have been
comparatively of late years, Extii
tionate charges have been continued
only by the help of recret and illegal
poole, or by charging prices sufficient
to pay dividends on 'Hal stock'.
Btock that represented no capita1, but
wai falsely called 'capital stock.' Con
sumers have hitherto believed their
bills ext irtionate, but until this year's
developments of pools, of llcticio'is
stock and of purchased legislation
they have never been able to prove
tbe facts. These facts are now laid

pany of $l!l,( 78,0OO. This haB been
done under the prefers that i: was
'autboria-d bylaw. If so, Bitch a law

Gao consumers are charged prices suf
tieiout to pay dividends accordingly,
and investors are invited to buy the
ex ra shares of the old stockholders,
who in tnrn pocket the money. Over
$ .',000,000 of working capital was with
drawn in tha process of consolidation.
Not a new dollar is actually invested
in the gas company's baeinesa, and
purchasers for the past year have nec
essarily had their yes open to the
character of their iuvoetments; yet
tnose who are unloading their shares
are loud in protesting for the
perfection of Ihe 'new investors.

seventh of the old sto.kholdera have
unloaded on the speculating public i
such stock as it would take (about I
15,000,000), have pocketed the money,
and now use the transaction as a j
screen from behind which they may i
deceiv3 the public. Consumers should
not pay dividenils on sucn stock, yn
the contrary, the essential fraud in- j
volved in the claim for such dividends
should result in annulling the organ
ization perpetrating it and so recon
rtruciiug the whole business ae to se
cure a charge for gas proportiona'e to
a fair cot.t and profit on its manufac
ture. If anything more than this is
claimed, the public in its own defense
should secure the abolition ol the
company claiming it,

When aid was asked for the Veitli
gris Valley road from I.ptoy, the pres
ent southwest terminus of one line
from l'aolo, to the southern line of the
State, the people who were requested
to subscribe were promised that an
effort would be made to obtain a di
rect connoction with Knnsas City, for
which thev were solicitous. This con
nection would be afforded them by
the Kansas City and Southwestern.
If this road is built, an outlet to
Kansas City will be given to all the
present Missouri 1'acilie system in
Kansas and its extensions, some of
which, to be made this year, ate of
great importance, tbe Kansas and Col
orado especially, which will divide
