THE PITTSBURG,'-. DISPATCH,- , SATJ3EDAT, JUNE-' 27,' 1801, '
9 -Jffl HISTOEICAL IM. It Sheltered Many a Eevolntionary Hero and Old-Tiino Knave, THE KAKSAS BENDERS OUTDONE.. How-One Evil Landlord Slaughtered Many cf His Hapless Guests. EETRIBCTION OVERTAKES ANOTHER rcor.nEErovDKXCE or TnE dispatch.' Agxkw, Pa., June 26. At this quaint little country place, a few miles from Rem ington station, on the Cleveland and Pittsburg Railroad, there is now used for one of Uncle Sam's postoffices a remark able old stone building. It has withstood all the storms and vicissitudes of the past 100 j cars, and lias a strange and eventful history, fraught with deepest, most ro mantic interet. One of the few inns or taverns of colonial days now standing, it is among the oldest if, indeed, it is not the oldest places of public entertainment inour country. It is a square, massive, two-story structure and stands upon a mossy bank a few hundred yards from the swiftly flowing Ohio that graceful stream' which Long fellow has justly stjled the "Beautiful Hirer." Before its doors runs the old turnpike, which once formed a great con necting link between the cities of the East, the South and the "West, but was long since biippliinted by the railroad, whose iron arms now stretch between it and the river. A vpook-llurdened Old House. If tho-c old walls, who-e substantial olidity at the end of a century may put to shame the mushroom building methods of to-day, could speak, what a tale they might unfold of life and death, love and hate, jealousy and despair, mirth and murder, laughter and tear-, sons and story' If Long iellow's saying be true, that all houses therein men hae lived and died arc hauutcd houses, then every stone, every tiinlu-r in this old building might be ex pected, aside from the reputation it popu larly enjoys of abounding in spooks of all kinds, to send forth a legion of ghosts at that 'witching hour when church yards jMwn. And no commonplace, every day ghosts, either: for many of our most distin guished national heroes of the Revolution, ami of later times awell men whose names are household words upon the lips of our children have sojourned here, as we shall see uhen we come to die more deeply into the life record of this quaint old structure. Its present ueas a postofficcis not inappro priate, for it would be the place par excel lence for dead letters. Wierd Tales t tho Tresent landlord. For the following reminiscences of this quaint old edifice I am indebted to llr. Charles Cheney, the present postmaster. He was born more than SO years ago within a lew rods of the "jiot on which it stands. His recollections are especially valuable, lrom the fact that he was not only identi fied with the old tavern in the days of stji;e-coacliing, but subsequently during the -ra of railroads where, as a locomotive en gineer, tie drove tie nrst locomotive ever seen west of the Allcghenies across those mountains in 1M1 lor the Pennsylvania ltailroaa iJorapany. This remarkable old building was erected just at the close of the Revolutionary War by Captain Iphraim Sholcs, who had distinguish",! himself as a brav officer of artillery during the stmcsle of the colon'cs with the intTtier country. On retiring to private life, when tbe loe iiad been completely van quished and the independence of the con querors finally established. Captain Sholcs tnrucd his sword, not into a plowshare or a pruning hook, but into a pencil and slate wherewith to keep account of thirsty and impecunious customers. The Origin of the Eagle Tavern. In other words, having inherited from Ins father and through his wife what was a v cry snug little lortune for those davs, he erected this stone building, called it the 'Eagle Tavern," out of compliment to that noble bird whicnis our national emblem, and established himself in life as an inn keeper Hotel, or in the v crnacular of that period, "tavern," signs then consisted merely of pictures. An innkeeper would display a picture of a black bear or a red lion, supplemented by no lettering whatever, and everybody knew that his establishment was. to be" spoken of as the Illnck Bear or the Red Lion Tavern, as the v isc might be. 5tany of these pictorial devices an; still to be seen iu the small tiwns of the South, where the rural echoes hiive never be-n awakened bj the shrill seream of tin locomotive whittle. There are "White Lambs," "Black Magpies," and countless beads of "Wasnincton, Franklin and other Revolutionary celebrities. The Inn's l'irst Christening. In those days of turnpikes, horseback journeys and lumbering stage coaches, and during" the epoch ol long wagon trains headed "Westward Ho'" which came after ward, a picture of a game cock, a red fox or a natioi.al hero, mounted upon a pole p'-intcd iy the roadside and swinging in an iron (niue, was hailed with joy as an an nouncement o a place of rest and refresh ment to' man au'l beast. "Whet. Kphraim Sholcs first opened to the travelling public this stone tavern he in tended to call it the "Black Bear," but an amusing experience he had with a tramp sign painter, w hich has been handed down through many generations, and is still told with great rehoh by the local Si Primes md .Solon Shingles when they gather to gi'ther 01 a night atthecountry store, caused i. tii to abandon the idea. In response to Mmli s question what would he take to j. a ; a sign ot a black bear, the painter rt- pi i that he would portray the animal uurtiniueu lcr jJ5, but that ho would le-ijuirt- i.." to paint him chained so that he co.ild not ';"i t. ay. Sholes did not think the chain would have anything to do with the permanency of the sign, and accepted tnc migratory artist's first proposition. "V hy It Was Named the Eagle. The pioti.re of brum was very handsome when completed, hut a heavy rain immedi c -lj ..fler it was pl.ued in "position made the mcu biard cs blank as Sholes face when 1 e o-tilrd tin- attention i the tramp painter JO til' It'MltS of hi v. ork. tls ocirse," s.i-d that worthy with the utinc i :ioii'"ilanee, "I knewthe bear would disjpper it he were not chained. Didn't i ten you that for SWi I would chain him to Lc couldn't get away?" straits thought a good quality of white ji-ad would have retained the bear better than a painted chain, so he dismissed the humorc.ts tramp artist with something a good deal las pic.iMiit than the price of His imitlev, l.-.bor. Regarding the disappear ance ol the bfr.r as an ill omen, he replaced Mr. B-uu with ui American cattle. 1 rom the barroom doorway of tuis old.inn ws seen the nrjt steamboat built and .ned by .he inventor, Robert Pulton - hat c v cr oav ictcd Western waters.

In this Tory room where Postmaster Cheney is now sorting the let ters so quietly, the Ehwcr of Alexander Hamilton hinte"d at his purpose antLsought to gain recruits for las bold filibustering expedition. There are some dari legends connected' with this old inn which, cause old residents who are familiar with theta to draw close together and sink thefr voices nearly to aw whisper when they rehearse tnein lor tnej hundredth time lor tne Denent oi 6omc cur ious stranger. There are tales strongly re minding one of the Bender horrors in Kan sas of a dangerous period, long after the genial Sholcs had been gathered to his lathers, and had been Succeeded by an IH-Xooklng Fellow named Gargev, during which more than one traveler, believed to have money in his saddlebigs, cntcredlts portals only to add one more to the long list of mysterions dis appearances. It was during that time, in October, 1S20, that a drover named Job Maxby, who always traveled on horseback accompanied by a gigantic Newfoundland dog, and who subsequently settled down In this neighborhood, put up for the night at the Eagle Tavern. iule warming ins unbootea legs by the barroom fire preparatory to retiring, his host's 7-year-old son exclaimed admiringly to his father as he gazed upon the stout drover's maulv proportions: "What nice fat legs for candles!" This strange remark, together with the silencing frowns and mysterious winks which it elicited from the boy's parents, made a deep impression on the drover's mind, and he was not sorry that when shown to his room his Newfound land dog persisted in following him, and ensconced himself under a table, whence he defied, with savage growls, oil attempts to dislodge him, Boniisee being at length fain to retire aud leave him master of the field. The Doc; Gives Timely "Warning. And when tbe landlord had gone the dog still appeared very uneasy, walking about the room sniffling at everything and whin ing as if he strongly mistrusted that all was not well. He seemed particularly suspi cious of the bed. Whenever his master ap proached it he would seize his garmentsin his teeth and endeavor to draw him away. "With a view to testing the suspicions aronsed by the dog's actions, the drover seized a heavy billet of wood from the open fireplace and cast it with all his strength upon the center of the conch. In stantly the mattress disappeared from sight through a hole in the floor communicating with the cellar below, and at the same time the traveler could hear the exultant cries of the landlord and his family at the thought that they had bagged their game. Xot a'moment was to be lost. Throwing open the window, Maxby saw that it was comparatively but a short distance to the grouud, tbe stories of the old-fashioned inn being very low. "Without hesitating an in stant, he leaped out, followed by his faith ful dog, hearing meanwhile the curses, im precations and hurrying footsteps of the wretches who had conspired against his life and against that of how many other trav elers God only knows. Reaching the stable he fortunately found it unlocked. Both Pursued and Pursuer Escape. Throwing himself upon the back of his horse he galloped away in the moonlight just ashis would-be murderers issuedfrom the house in pursuit; but seeing they had come too Inte they also devoted their energies to flight, and though Maxbv rode as fast as his horse could carry him from house to house giving the alarm, yet before the people could turn out en masse the wretches had made good their escape. "What finally became of them was never known, their fate being en veloped in a mystery as dense as that sur rounding the end of the notorious Bender family, who perpetrated similar deeds in Kansas a few years ago. A thorough" investigation of the old inn was made, and many skulls and heaps of bones unearthed in the cellar. As there were also found facilities tor the manufacture of candles on a large scale, and as Gargey had been famous for a superior quality of that article which he had been in the habit of selling to his neighbors, the significance of the above mentioned remark of his little boy, that Maxby's legs were nice and fat for candles, will be readily understood. The 'eit Landlord Little Better. After Gargey came a landlord named "Widter, and soon afterward a young farmer, who was returning home on " the opposite bank of the river from a visit to his sweet heart about 12 o'clock one June night, saw a boat put oil" from the neighborhood of the Eagle tavern rowed by a man who, when he reached the middle ot the stream, lifted a large and seemingly heavy bag from the bottom of his craft and lowered it noiselessly into the water, where it immediately sank from view. That same night a wealthy Hebrew peddler, known to have a great deal of money on his person, mysteriously disappeared from "Widter's, where he had taken lodging. Some inquiry was made, but the landlord stated that the peddler had left his house before, daylight in order to reach the next town at ail early hour. Though it was gen erally bclieved'that Widter had murdered the Hebrew, nothing could ever be proven pgainst him. Removing to the citv of Al legheny, he built there out of his ill-gotten gams a hotel that was considered magnifi cent at that period. For a time he flourished' like a green bay tree. Then everything went wrong. His only daughter, a beautiful and accomplished girl of li years, went to the bad. His sons became loafers and desperadoes. All three of them served terms of imprisonment lor various crimes, nnd one was hanged in a Southern State for stabbing a man in a drunken brawlT The Climax or Ills Ketrlbutlon. Widter's fine hotel was destroyed by fire. His wife eloped with his barkeeper and was never Heard ot alterward. Unable to endure this accumulation of trouble he him self took to drink, soon dissipated all his property, became a shabby, shipshod drunk ard, and finally died in the Allegheny county poor house.another striking illustra tion of the truth of the horaelv old adage that "Whatever conies over the devil's back is sure to puss out under his armpit." As Postmaster Cheney and I sat together discussing these things in what was once the barroom of this interesting old hostelry, mv eye rested on a 'quaint old Butch clock standing in one corner. It was one of those curious old timepieces which tell not only the hours and minutes, but the phases of the sun, moon and stars, and a great many other things besides. "iTou are looking at the old clock," said the postmaster, following my glance. "It lias been litre ever since the house was built, having been inherited by Captain Sholes, the builder, from his Dutch ancestors. All the various tenants of this old stone tavern have felt great pride in its clock and have made it a point to keep it in good repair. I had it thoroughly overhauled only the other day.. There is a music box behind the dial and if you wait until the clock strikes you will here it play." As he finished speaking the old clock struck nine, and the music box concealed within it began to play very appropriately: Should auld acquaintance be foiirot, And never brougut to mln't ' ahoulu auld nciuarhtance bo forgot lid da, s o' nnlrt Iniif-firnn? And da s o' auld hmg Fuaxk II. Wade." rUN Bill Xye tells of his speculations in horse flesh for tho benefit of tho readers of THE DISr-VTCU to-morrow. Want a Kailroad.

As a general rule, the pawn that first bocomes a queen will win by forcing tho adverse king in front of his pawn, first from one side and then from the other.

There aro a few exceptions to this general rule, one of which is that if tho pawn is nt rook's seventh square, supported by its king, the came is drawn unless the adverse king is within two moves of knight's third square or bishop's second square, or can be brought by discovered check within two moves of ono of theso squares.

Tbe following is from Robert McCall, in Glasgow Herald: In a letter dated Aidelalde, May 5, Mr. Wyllie informs us that he intended sailing next day, per the Austral, for London. In tho course of his note he remarks: "With regard to my match with 3Ir..Reed 'it will have-to go on. Mr. Hefter can havo no excuse to make; it wa3 ho that wanted timo, not I. Tho match must go on within CO days after-my arrival in America. I saw an article in the New York World statins: that Mr. Reed's friends were going to lift their forfeit; if this bo true they will find their mistake, as it was they that sent tho challenge." i'ne Austral passea liiDrauar on Wednes day, June 10, and should reach London early In the week. It will be rather a surprise to the 'JHerd, Laddio" to learn on his arrival that it is his stake not Reed's that has been declared torfelted. Thanks, however, to Mr. R. W. Patterson, of Pittsburg, tho money has been made good; but Wyllie will no doubt be very ohary of risking a. similar confiscation. No one can read tho abovoltcmas to his match with Reed, but will realize that a storm is brew ing over tho heads of Reed, Hefter, Dunlap & Co., and wo cortalnly will not shed a tear over their discomfiture. We had only published statements to base our judgment upon, and we saw from the state ments of both parties that Mr. Wyllie had Srotected his" money by keeping the ates out of the contract, and that the only thing., binding the match was to take placo 60 duys after his arrival in America. Mr. Wyllie, in tho item above, proves how cor rect was our position, and that he will hold Hefter to that agreement, and he also shows that it was they who w anted time, not he Our prediction will come true that Mr. Wyllio was not one that cither Dunlap or Chicago could trifle with. A friend writing to us, says: "Mr. Wyllio presents his case better than a paid advocate could do, and he will have little trouble In showing how unjustly he has been dealt with. Checker Editor. CHECKER CELEBRATION ON JULY 4. Pittsburg, besides its other attractions on Independence Day, will have a great checker contest. Western Pennsylvania players will again tiy conclusions with the Twin Cities, Pittsburg and Allegheny, and they will have a few strong players lrom Altoona. Mr. Brown, when here, thought that three or four besides himself could come down, and Mr. Nesbit, of Tarcntum, will be on hand with some of thoir club. And if Mr. Tyson can get here then wo may look out lor a colouration of no mean order. And to crown the whole, and surround it with an attrac tion that will equal anything iu the State, James P. Reed, champion checker player or America, will give an exhibition of blind fold play in the evening against the strongest players of tho visitors. It will be a great sight, and checker players who have not seen this exhibition of the marvelous powers of the American ehampion should visit the Homo Hotel on the evening of July 4, where they will see an exhibition of blindfold skill against strong players, he playing against six or eight at ono time without seeing their boards. It has to be seen to be realized and appreciated. CHECKER GOSSIP. Mr. Dunlap How do you relish the im- Eression that your editorials givo at first lush as being lrom the Colorado Boot Jack. Some of our correspondents have dubbed you "Emperor." but the above is as Shake speare says, "The unkindest cut of all." It is wonderful to see what a state of low ness tho supporters of Reed stoop to.to belit tle Jnmcs Wyllie, tho nged champion of the world. "When abuse- has to "bo printed" with out a namo.sueh as the lollowing: "He has no conversational powers, and he disgusted many of his most earnest suppoi ters hero by his thorough meanness,'' such nameless communications reflect only on the pub lisher. If the supporters of Wyllio want to stoop to such methods of abuse, they have abundanco of material. W. H. Tyson, the Central Pennsylvania checker expert, visited the two checkor headqarters of Pittsburg on Tuesday, June 23. No. 96 Seventh avenue was visited early in the afternoon, and tho veteran Seeds had a lengthy sitting. In the evening he visited the Home Hotel, where he met a great many of the city players, and somo of them got a little tho best of the sitting, others came out even'aud several wele deieated. Among the strong players present who did not havo a sitting were Mr.E wait, Mr. Spurr and Mr. Patterson. His genial disposition and gentlemanly waj s made him a host of warm lrlcnds in Pittsburg. , The Taioiitmn champion, W. S. Nesbit, lately visited Denver, Col., and made a won derful record as a checker player by defeat ing all he met, and he met somo strong natural plajers. Mr. Nesbit studies the books.

HARTMAN, OF COLUMBUS, OHIO, GIVES A SEASON ABLE LECTURE ON 3tEMCLVE. Nervous ' Prostration Its Causes, Effects, Symptoms and Core Nervines a Nuis ance, Bromides a Bane, Sedatives a Slaughter Natural Effective Remedies That Never rail. Nervous prostration (neurasthenia. spinal anremia, spinal irritation, nervous debility, nervousness and weak nerves are different names given to an affection of the nervous" system, which is becoming more and more common1. The habits of the aver age American is, in almost every particular, calculated to produce this form of nervous disorder. Hard work, "close competition, business uncertainties, little sleep and high aiwu5, wic use ui uureuiiu?, an teuu uua.e iu injure the nervous system. The dress and customs of polite society, the ever-increasing pressure of business circles, the reckless indulgence of the sporting classes, each fur nish their quota to swell the terrible list of nervous wrecks that crowd the many hos pitals and sanitariums of our country. Thou sands remain at their homes, desperately trying to go through the tedious routine of theduties of household, farm, shop or office, taking nervine after nervine, vainly striv ing'to put off the day when they Shall break down altogether. A burden to themselves, a trial to their friends, these unfortunate people continue to diag out a miserable ex istence year after year. SYMT03IS. Probably the most invariable symptom in the history of nervous prostration is morbid fear. A foreboding of calamity of some sort, vague apprehensions, a sense that something awful is about to happen, often precedes for a long time the general debility which is to follow. The loss of vitality of the nervous system deranges the functions more or less of every organ in the body. The head is one day congested with too much blood, and perhaps the next day pallid, because of too little blood. Twitch ing of the eyelids, moving brown specks before the eyes, and metallic ringing in the ears, are the result of brain exhaustion. The appetite and digestion may remain good, although loss of appetite and nervous dyspepsia are very often prominent symp toms in such cases. Sour stomach after eating, with belching of gas, is very troublesome a feeling of great weight in 'the stomach after eating a full meal, pro-' ducing in some cases a terrible depression, causing the patient indescribable suffering. even wihen the appetite and digestion re-t main good. Morbid fear of leaving home, or being separated from their usual .attendants, also of taking medicine for fear of being poi soned, fear of great storms, of crowded as semblies, all or either and many others are likely to be present in a decided case of nervous prostration. A constant desire to talk of their symptoms is commonly so great as'to make "it difficult to keep such patients long at a time talking or thinking' of anything else. Chills and hot flashes of very irregular duration and recurrence come and go without seeming cause. The hands and feet are usually cold and clammy, and the general tendency is to dryness and cool ness of the skin of the whole "body. Among the symptoms to which this class of patients are liable, but not always pres ent, may be mentioned neuralgic headache, nervous chills, hysteria, sinking or faint spells, distressing palpitation of the heart. defective eyesight, total inability to read, write or do any business; urine abundant, without color, loss of flesh, sleeplessness. and many others, of which eacb-case pre sents a different array. TTTGENIC TREATMENT. This consists, first, of an entire change of habits as possible. "Whatever vocation the patient has followed should be entirely sus pended, or as nearly so as possible, and some other employment taken up to the ex tent the strength of the patient will permit. Entire leisure is not favorable to improve- -ment, as the patients are too apt to dwell ont their troubles. Second, the diet should consist largely of animal food, guided by the preference of the patient. A long walk before bed time .will frequently procure a good night's rest. A tepid bath often will accomplish the same acsiraue end. It is generally impossible to keep the bowels regular by any hygienic measures, as the patient is .unable to take exercise enough to keep up the natural action of tho bowels. An effective and gentle laxative that does not weaken or disturb digestion is a very desirable remedy in these cases, but hard to find. I have found Man-a-lin to be by far the best laxative in these cases I have ever been able to procure. There is no laxative the equal of Man-a-lin in cases where a natural movement of the bowels is desirable rather than active purgation. SPECIHC MEDICAL TREATMENT. The first difficulty I meet with in the proper treatment of nervous prostration is to get my patients rid of the many nervine, stimulantc and sedatives which they have usually become accustomed to before con sulting me. It would be difficult to over estimate the damage these drugs do in such cases. Bromides, valerinates, chloral, opium in every form, caffeine, cocaine and many others are all alike of great injury and of no possible good. To get all these and many other similar remedies away from the patient and Pe-ru-na in their stead, is the first thing to be accomplished. After the patient has taken Pe-ru-na, to the exclusion of everything else, a short time, there is a marked change in all the symptoms. The appetite becomes regular, sleep natural and overy disagreeable symp tom improved. Of course it is sometimes several months or more before a permanent cure is realized, but it is only a question of time; Pe-ru-na will not fail to cure a single uncomplicated case. Pe-ru-na is a perfect specific for these cases, and is absolutely in vincible. There are no failures where these directions are faithfully followed. The,im provement is prompt, and the patient "can rest assured that a perfect cure will follow a persistent use of it. Pe-ru-na contains no phosphorous, strychnine or quinine to temporarily exalt the" nervous system, but acts permanently by restoring the normal functions. It con tains no narcotic or sedative, ana does not derange the action of any bodily function during its use. I have no hesitation or misgiving in making positive promises of results in advance as the cur6 of nervous prostration in any form by Pe-ru-na, taken according to above directions, except only in cases where softening of the brain or spinal corii had commenced before the use of Pe-ru-rTa was begun. .
