W. W. HAKYEY. WELLIITG-TOIT CLOTHIER DOG MEAT. A Newly Dleoovered Cure For Brlght'B Disease. Bam McGrecor Itaoover III Health Afta Eating Flfteon Dog An Ex cellent Thing for th. Sheen Industry. St Lonli nopobllcan,) Samuel McGregor, a farmer residing la the northern part of St. Clair County, Illinois, near tbs Monroe County line, . yesterday related to a reporter bit re markablo car of Bright's disease. He had been a robust and boalthy man un til about two years ago, when he began to decline In health, and, though he con sulted the physicians about his locality, they could afford him no relief, and he continued to become more sickly and feeble. H. came to the conclusion that he was victim of consumption, but he re solved to fight it with the best medical skill he could procure, and for this pur pose bad consulted and been doctorod by the most eminent physicians In St. Louis and Chicago, but to no avail. He bad by this time expended nearly all the property he was worth In doctors' fees, patent medicines of all kinds, and nurses' bills, and yet he was steadily approaching the grave. As a last resort he visited a physician who periodically visits . St Louis and bad his case by him diagnosed, and this physician declared that he was alBlcted with Bright'! dis ease and that It had progressed so far that there was no chance of curing or even " checking ft, and he returned to his borne a most dejected human with no hope bat a peedy rest In the grave. While brooding over his supposed inevitable fate one day an old German woman happened along and in th. conversation McGregor related to her that the doctors had all given him up for death from Bright's disease. With the announcement that he bad Bright's disease the old German woman's eyes as sumed a great brilliancy, and she most earnestly declared that there was no need of his dying at all with that disease, no oiatter what the doctors bad said to the contrary. She knew of a remedy that bad cured people suffering from that com plaint, and that It was using dog meat for food. She insisted that he must commence feeding on canine flesh and she would guarantee his complete recovery or she would die in his stead. The idea of eating dog meat was most nauseating to Mo Gregor, but, like a drowning man grasping at a straw, be resolved to commence diet lug oq dog flesh as a last resort, and par ticularly inasmuch as the old woman was so sanguineof ltsefQcaryand so persistent that he should follow her advice. Mc Gregor's trouble, in addition to bis sick ness, was to get the dogs whereon to feed. But he related bis wants to a young friend, who agreed to produce the dogs as they were wanted, for so much a head. The first canine brought to the slaughter was a large and nobis Newfoundland, which was prop erly dressed, and McGregor entered upon bis canine diet Horrible the idea was to . him of eating sitch flesh, but when he bad tasted of the dish as it had been broiled by bis wife the nauseousneu previously en tertained precipitately vanished, and when b. bad finished his first dog-meat feast he pronounced it the most delicious and palatable food b had ever par taken of, and therefore he could scarcely get dog meat enough. Dog after dog was corraled throughout the neighborhood and led to the altar of Bright's disease. The youngest dogs were elected if possible, but one. in a while a . tough old stager was run across, and then 2IcGregor's dish was not quite so relish able as it might be; but even then be pre ferred it to veal, lamb or frogs. He kept on eating dog, and from the very first In ducement be commenced to improve and rapidly became a well man, and to-day Is Just as robust, strong and healthy as he ever had been, and his good fortune he 1 ascribes to the old German woman and the martyred dogs, after h. had been pro- . noonoed Incurable by th best-of pbysl- . clans and was already with on foot injthe grave. H had become so Infatuated with ' dog meat that he could scarcely give up eating It, but th furor that bad been ' produced In th locality among th people who war missing their dogs and the threats made against the party, If discovered, who was taking - them warned him that be must call a halt on subsisting on canine meat, ' lest he, being saved from death from - Bright's disease, might experience a vio lent and bloody death at the band of the , owners of the canines. In all be ate fif teen dogs, and, though the owners of all greatly bemoaned their mysterious loss, the most affecting case was that of a young lady who was thus bereft of her poodle, , and whose gtlef became so great over the loss that she bad to be taken on an ex tensive traveling expedition to prevent her .grieving herself to death or carrying outs ....eat to retire permanently from the world. If she ever learns that McGregor ate her poodle she would doubtless go in sane. But McUregor Is cured of Bright's disease, is intensely fond of dog moat, and would be a valuable rosidont In a lo cality In which sheep-killing dogs abound, for there he would bo permitted to appease his new-found appotlto. A Florist's Mistake. N. Y. Gruphle. "We want a broken pillar of white flow ers. Sometbln' pure and consolln'," re marked a customer to the florist "How would this white dove suit you?" "First-rate. Give us a couple. Perch 'em on the coffin, and point their bills up rellglous-llke. You know how." "It must be terrible to lose an Innocent child," remarked the florist, sympathet ically. "Who's lost a child?" replied the cus tomer, savagely. "If Bill Scrap heard you call him an innocent child ho'd smash your eye. Bill wasn't innocent onough to hart blm any, and don't you forgit It 1" m iilxtorle Kemains. Boston Journal.)

Three golden-winged woodpeckers, pop ularly known as "wake-us," have taken np winter quarters In the tool bouse at Falrvlew reservoir. In Order to enter th. place they drilled a hole through a solid board large enough for one to pass In at a time, and, as the house Is not often visited,' find it a comfortable and quiet retreat This Is not th first time winter birds hav found shelter there. In th winter of 1880-81. Falrvlew reservoir was being made. a stove was placed In the1 building, thol pip. of which served for a chimney on the outside, and the laborers built a 'fir. and warmed th. house dally, that th.y might dine comfort ably. Th. work was stopped for several weeks and resumed again on ono of th. coldest days In mldwiuter. The workmen went to th. buildiug at noon and built a fire. They bad no sooner lighted th. kindling than they heard a great flutter ing in the pipe, which finally reached th stove. Taking off the covor and looking in, a workman espied a mass of birds suf focating in thesmoko. He lot down th. grate and put out the flames, but tbe birds were all . doad. When the stove was cleared forty-seven bluebirds were re moved from it. They had flown into th. ,)lpaand huddled together Ilk. bats to keep 'warm, and were thus suddenly over vJielmed and smothered by smoke. Does yer olo mua work on tho dock now?"
