"l'he long warfare of the local
physicians by C. W. Miller, editor
of the Demcc.-at, riau'ted in an oc
currence last night that will be
greatly deplored in this community.

attack on him in the last issue of

was in for a heating. Theie was a
lively scrimmage in wliic'i Mr
Miller was quite badly beaten up.
Dr. Auner was injured also. Tbe
combatants wero separated by by
Tlio persistent attacks ol Mr
Miller on the Iccal physicians havo
been deeply resented by them and
their large circle of friends lor some
time. It is certain that Waverly's
physicians in ability and character
are the peers of the best physicians
in cities of similar size in the state,
and their conduct has been no more
worthy of scathing and tcurrilious
criticisms than has the conduct of
physicians of other localities. The
malice with which Mr. Miller has
taken advantage of his editorship
of a newspaper to persecute them
has been entirely unwarranted.
It is to bo regretted, however,
that the differences between Mi
Miller aud the physicians resulted
in a personal altercation between
himself aud one of their number.
It is reported that Mr. Miller has
filed information against Dr. Auner,
charging him with assault mid but
tery. No arrest had been made when
this dispatch was written."

Line In the Pacific Where It Shakes
Hands With Yesterday.
Most people who have read Jules
Verne's "Around the World In Eighty
Ua.vn" will remember how narrowly
the traveler lulled his bet, having for
gotten that In following the sun from
east to west he had gained oue day.
When one roesos the Atlantic from
London to Xew York he gains rather
more than half an hour eaeh day.
From* New York, to Chicago another
hour 1 gained, another to Denver, an
other to San Francisco, which Is reck
oning time eight hours later than Lou
don and of course the best part of a
day later than Shanghai and Yokoha
ma. In crossing the l'acitle thero
conies a time when the day beglus,
where yesterday and tomorrow shake
hatuls and where the traveler is* cheat
ed out of a da.v in his life.
Iu mid-l'acllie, going west, one skips
from Sunday to Tuesday. Going east
he has* one day of the week repeated
two Sundays or Tuesdays, us the ease
may be.
The Hue of the ehauging day is not
a straight one. The islands in the Pa
cific take their time from the continent
with which they trade aud from which
they were discovered. Thus the Hue
of the change zigzags dowu the Pa
cific from south to north, dodging be
tween the islands.
Hence It might easily happen that a
ship which has already skipped a day
would reach an Island which clings to
Sau Francisco time, lu such a case it
would be Monday on shore aud Tues
day on the ship.
If the ship's Jolly boat were lying at
a wharf, It would be Monday on tlie
wharf aud Tuesday ou the boat.
And If a persou lives somewhere
near the line he caa get a sailboat aud
visit yesterday and tomorrow lu the
most delightful fashion.

Long Sentences. -/V
Ruskin, it is said, has writteii more
sentences of inordinate length than
any other classic jvrlter of moderu
English prose. Frederic Harrison some
years ago counted the words in a num
ber of typical sentences, llndlng that In
the earlier books it was no uncommon
thing for liuskhi to run beyond the
page before permitting himself and his
readers the relief of a full stop. But In
every case the sense Is cleaf as day.
Wordsworth's poem on the "Charac
ter of the Happy Warrior" is a notable
example of sustained connections.
Apart from the opening and closing
couplets the poem consists of two very
long compound seutences almost en
tirely comprised of adjwrtlval clauses.

tains fifty-seven decasyllabic lines.
