CANADA'S MOUNTED POLICE
How a Ilnnd lui of Men Keep a Host of Itedskins in Awe. Jl'G correspondent of the Loudon time* T.'ho made tliè northwest tour with Lord Lome, praises up the mounted police, of whom (he says) it would be difficult to speak too highly. Lord Lome, always very keen in military matters since the days when he himself worked con amore in a volunteer artillery corps, and for an amateur, therefore, an unusually good judge, pronounced them "as fine a troop as he ever saw." They are ludicrously underhanded for the ground they have to cover, and the number of In dians and white men, often more unmanage able than Indians, whom they are expected to keep in order. They are 300, and the In dians may be counted by tens of thousands. Yet, if a crime be committed out on the prairie, a handful of mounted police seize the criminal, a chief it may be, surrounded by his tribe, and carry him off to the nearest fort as coolly as a policeman would take up a pickpocket in Clieapside. Not long ago some Cree chiefs, considering themselves ag grieved by the Government, seized upon some Government cattle passing through their Territory, killing and eating three. Col. Herschimer and six of his men happened to come to the place almost the same day. They ae once summoned the chiefs to sur render. The chiefs refused, armed them selves and their immeuiate followers, and, as the police approached, tired a volley over, but pretty near their heads to intimidate them. Had the fire been returned the police, far outnuinljered, would probably have been slain to a man ; but calmly relying on the majestic of the law, they walked under the bullets right into the Indian camp, hand cufled three chiefs and carried them off, amid loud protestations and threats, but no actual violence. A still more striking case occurred quite recently among the Blackfeet. One of the Mounted Police was murdered, shot in the back—by a young Blackfoot In dian, whose father had, or thought he had, a grievance against the Government, and on his death-bed bequeathed the legacy of ven gance to his son. The murderer at first es caped over the American frontier, but com ing ljack was taken by a small body of police from the very midst of his tribe, to whom he appealed in vain, though they knew enough of English customs to know that he was be ing carried to death. He is now in Fort Mc Leod, to which we are on our way, and though his execution is a certainty, and the Blackfeet, many of them armed with Win chesters, are quite numerous and powerful enough to avenge—as they might have res cued him—indeed, powerful enough to raise war, not the slightest apprehension is felt of their making any serious difficulty, or the Government General, I need scarcely say, would not be allowed to go among them, ex cept under the strongest protests from those responsible for his safety. The Indians know well that nothing more than strict justice has or will be done. What is perhaps still more curious than their submitting to the control of the police rather than resist it by force is that they volunta rily make use of it themselves. If an In dian nowadays has his horse stolen, instead of going at once on the war-path, and trying to recover it himself, together with the thief's scalp, he appeals to the police, and expeets them to recover it, which they usually do. Bank Closed. Boston, November 19.—At 11:30 the Cen tral National Bank stopped paying checks. The officers say that its temporary stoppage is for the purpose of consultation among the directors as to the proper course to pursue. At the clearing house to-day the Central Band was compelled to pay $400,000. Needham says that the depositors of the Pacific Bank will certainly be paid in full. Weeks to-night refused to make any state ment whatever, simply saying that if the reorganization of the bank is effected, as he hoped for, he will be able to pay every dol lar owed. The feeling in monied circles in this city is that the bottom has been reached in the financial difficulties. No disturbance is apprehended in the future. Boston, November 22.—Weeks has made a statement to Bank Examiner Needham and the directors of the Pacific Bank, which is as favorable as was expected. The pros pects are thought good for payments and for continuing business under its charter. Boston, November 21.—There was no run on the Central National Bank to-day, .and the deposits were fully equal to the drafts The directors have appointed assistant bank examiner Jos. W. Derby temporary cashier. The excitement in financial circles has evi dently completely subsided. Theo. F. Baldwin Arrested. Newark, November 22.— Theo. F. Bald win, late teller in the Mechanics' Bank, has been arrested under the direction of the U. 8. District Attorney, on the charge of falsify ing the books of the bank and aiding the cashier, his brother, in the misapplication of funds. He is in the custody of a deputy i marshal seeking hail, which is fixed at $50, 000 . _ Howgate Indicted. Washington, November 21.—The grand jury has brought in seven indictments agains t Captain Howgate, one for forging vouchers and the other for embezzlement. Washington, November 22.—Capt. Henry W. Howgate was arraigned in the criminal court this afternoon and plead not guilty to the indictments charging him with embez zlement and forgery. His bail will he fixed next Thursday. Baldwin's Loss. Youngstown, O.. November 22.—Jesse Baldwin, who was robbed of a large amount of gold last week, says that the amount re ceived recently in Washington for bonds was not taken, and that the amount stolen was not nearly as large as at first stated. He be lieves that a Washington confidence man led the robbers. It is the impression here that his loss is $30,000. Star Koutc Cases Postponed. Philadelphia, November 21.—The Dis trict Attorney has received orders from Washington not to try the cases of the straw bidders in the star route cases at this term of court It is understood that action is post poned so that the defendants can he used as witnesses in the other cases. Found Dead. London, November 21. —Miss Gifford, the holder of two small farms, was found dead in bed at Wexford Saturday. There , were indications of mnrder. Ed. Maxwell Lynched* St. Paul, November 19.—The Pioneer Press' Durand, Wis., special says : Ed. Max well had his examination at 2 p. m. to-day, pjead not guilty and waived an examination. On leaving the court room the officers were overpowered, though they made a brave re sistance. The prisoner was taken by a hun dred determined men from all parts of the country, and in less than three minutes was hanging from a convenient limb near the court house. Our citizens deprecate the ac tion of the mob but were powerless to resist. The matter was evidently well arranged and skillfully carried out. After the hanging the crowd dispersed in good order, and our usu ally quiet village shows no signs of the fear ful excitement that prevailed during the day. Sentenced to be Hanged. Montpelier, Vt., November 19.—The Su preme Court has overruled the exceptions raised by the counsel of Emeline L. Meeker, convicted of child murder, and sentenced her to hr confined in the State prison till the last Friday in March, 1883, the last three months to be solitary, and then to be hanged. Resigned.

OZONE A New Process for Preserving all Perishable Articles, Animals and Vegetable, from Fermentation and Putrefaction, Retaining their odor and Flavor. •OZONE"—Purilied air, active state of oxyKcn. ,,, -U'(Wfr. This Preservative is not a liquid, pickle, or any of the old and exploded processes, but, is simply and purely OZONE, as produced and applied by an entirely new process. Ozone is the antiseptic prin ciple of every substance, and possesses the power to preserve animal and vegetable structures from decay. There is nothing; on the face of the earth liable to decay or spoil which Ozone, the new Preservative, will not preserve for all time in a perfectly fresh and palatable condition. The value of Ozone as a natural preserver has been known to our abler chemists for years, but until now, no means of producing it in a practical, inexpensive, and simple manner have been dis covered. Microscopic observations prove that decay is due to septic attack of minute germs, that develop and feed upon animal and vegetable structures, Ozone, applied by the Prentiss method, seizes and de stroys these germs at once, and thus preserves. At our offices in Cincinnati can be seen almost every article that can be thought of, preserved by this process, and every visitor is welcome to come in, taste, smell, take away with him, and test in every way the merits of Ozone as a preservative. We will also preserve, free of charge, any article that is brought or sent prepaid to us, and return it to the sender, for him to keep and test. FRESH MEATS, such ns beef, mutton, veal, pork, poultry, game, fish, etc., preserved by this method, can be shipped to Europe, subjected to i atmospheric changes and return to this country in ■ a state of perfect preservation. EGGS can be treated at a cost of less than one I dollar a thousand dozen, and be kept in an ordin ' ary room six months or more, thoroughly preser ved ; the yolk held in its normal condition, and the J eggs as fresh and perfect as on the day they were I treated, and will sell as strictly "chojce." The ad j vantage in preserving eggs is readily seen ; there are seasons when they can be bought for 8 or 10 ; cents a dozen, and by holding them, can besold for I an advance of from one hundred to three hundred ; percent. One man, with this method, can pre ! serve 5,000 dozen a day. « A FORTUNE Awaits any man who Secures Control of OZONTZS in any Township or County. A. C. Bowen, Marion, Ohio, has cleared 82,000 in two months. $2 for a test package was his first in vestment. Woods Brothers, Lebanon, Warren County, Ohio, made 86,000 on eggs purchased in August and sold November 1st. 82 for a test package was their first investment. F. K. Raymond, Morristown. Belmont County, Ohio, is clearing 82,000 a month in handling and selling Ozone. 82 for a test package was his first investment. D. F. Webber, Charlotte, Eaton County, Mich., has cleared 81,000 a month since August. 82 for a j test package was his first investment. J. B. Gaylord, 80 La Salle St, Chicago, is pre serving eggs, fruit, etc., for the commission men of Chicago, charging l)4ç. per dozen for eggs, and other articles in proportion. He is preserving 5,000 dozen eggs per day, and on his business is making 83,000 a month clear. 82 for a test package was his first investment. How to Secure a A test package of Ozone, containing a sufficient quantity to preserve one thousand dozen eggs or other articles in proportion, will be sent to any applicant on reecipt of 82. This packape will enable the applicant to pursue any line of tests and experiments he desires, and thus satisfy himself as to the extraordinary merits of Ozone as a Pre servative. After having thus satisfied himself and had time to look the field over to determine what he wishes to do in the future—whether to sell the article to others, or to confine it to his own use, or any other line of policy which is best suited to him and to his township or county—we will enter into an arrangement with him that will make a fortune for him and give us good profits. We will give ex township or county privileges to the first responsi ble applicant who orders a test package and de sires to control the business in his locality. The man who secures the control of Ozone for any special territory, will enjoy a monopoly which will surely enrich him. Don't let a day pass until you have ordered a test package, and if you desire to secure an exclu sive privilege we assure you that delay may de prive you of it, for the applications come in to iis by scores every mail—many by telegraph. "First come first served" is our rule. If you do not care to send money in advance for ' the test package we will send it C. O. D., but this will put you to the expense of charges for return of money. Our correspondence is very large; we have all we can do to attend to the shipping of dlawl3tnovl9<fcwl3thovl7 PRENTISS S. E.

We have the brat assorted stock of Builders' FRUITS may be permitted to ripen in tlieir native climate, and can be transported to any part of the world. The juice expressed from fruits can beheld for an indefinite period without fermentation—hence the great value of this process for producing a temper ance beverage. Cider can be held perfectly sweet for any length of time. VEGETABLES can lie kept for an indefinite period in their natural condition, retaining their odor and flavor, treated in their original packages, at a small expense. All grains, flour, meal, etc., are held in their normal condition. BUTTER, after being treated by this process, will not become rancid. Dead human bodies, treated before decomposi tion sets in, can be held in a natural condition for weeks, without puncturing the skin or mutilating the body in any way. Hence the great value of Ozone to undertakers. There is no change in the slightest particular in the appearance of any article thus preserved, and no trace of any foreign or unnatural odor or taste. The process is so simple that a child can operate it as well and as successfully ns a man. There is no expensive*apparatus or machinery required. A room filled with diff erent articles, such as eggs, meat, fish, etc., can be treated at one time, without additional trouble or expense. j&ö "In fact, there Is nothing that Ozone will not preserve. Think of every thing you can that is liable to sour, decay, or spoil, and then remember that we guarantee that Ozone will pre serve it in exactly the condition you want it for any length of time. If you will remember this, it will save asking questions as to whether Ozone will preserve this or that article— it will pre serve anything and everything you can think of. There is not a township in the United States in which a live man cannot make any amount of money, from 81,000 to 810,000 a year, that he pleases. We desire to get a live man interested in each county in the United States, in whose hands we can place this Preservative, and through him se cure the business which every county ought to produce. The Cincinnati Feed Co., 49S West Seventh street, is making 85,000 a month in handling brewers' malt, preserving and shipping it as feed to all parts of the country. Malt unpreserved sours in 24 hours. Preserved by Ozone it keep perfectly sweet for months. These are instances which we have asked the privilege of publishing. There are scores of others.

Fortune with Ozone. orders and giving attention to our working agents. Therefore, we cannot give any attention to letters that do not order Ozone. If you think of any article that you are doubtful about Ozone preserving, re member we guarantee that it will preserve it. no matter ichat it is. REFERENCES.
