I have read a deal of sarcasm in iny
ciily but I never read anythiiig equal
kb the sarcasm contained in the above
tout chaptered book, written by some
anonymous. I suspect the experience
portrayed is a personal one the au
thor intimates as much on page 81.
Let me give you a synopsis:
"Malaria" as it states, "is the
with which superficial physicians cov
er up a multitude of ill teelings which
they do not understand, and do not
much care to investigate. It is also
a cover for such diseases as they can
not cure. When they advise their
patient to travel or that he has over
worked and needs rest and is prob
ably Buffering from malaria, it is a
confession of ignorance
or of inability."
"The patient goes abroad. The
chance is a tonic and for a time he
feels better. Comes home. Fickle ap
petite, frequent headaches, severe
colds, cramps, sleeplessness, irritabil
ity, tired feelings, and general unfit
ness for business are succeeded in due
time by alarmine attacks of rheuma

gardless of all human feelings.

It is not incurable I am certain, for
my nephew was recently cured when
his physicians said recovery was im
possible. The case seems to me to be
a wonderful one." This gentleman
formerly represented bin government
in a foreign country. He knows, ap
preciates and declares the value of
that preparation, because his nephew,
who is a son of Danish Vice-Consul
Schmidt, was pronounced incurable
when the remedy, Warner's safe cure,
was begun. "Yes," said his father, "I
was very skeptical, but since taking
that remedy the boy is well."
I happen to know what it was that
cured the boy, for Genl. Christiansen,
of Drexel, Morgan & Co's., told me
that it was that 'wonderful remedy
Warner's safe cure.'
Well, I suspect the hero of the book
cured himself by the same means.
I cannot close my notice better than
by quoting the authors advice:
"If, my friend, you have such an
experience as I have portrayed, do
not put your trust in physicians to
the exclusion of other remedial agen
cies. They have no monopoly over
disease and I personally know that
many of them would far prefer that
their patients should go to Heaven
direct from their powerless hands
than that they should be saved to

Abstract of the Proceedings
senate and Heuse.
Senator Stewart has introduced a bill
granting a pension of $5,000 a year to the
^icf Justico Waite.
Mr- Hoar offered a resolution which was
adopted, instructing the-select committee
on the operations of the ci7il service to in
quire and report whether there has been
within two years any fraud or maladmin
istration in the New York custom house
in regard to the importation of sugar.
Conference reports on the bills to divide
the Great Sioux reservation into separate
smaller reservations, and to ratify and
confirm the agreement with the Gros
Ventres and other bands of the Blackfeet
Indians in Montana, were presented and
At the close of Mr. Stewart's remarka on
the silver question the Senate resumed
consideration of the bill for the admission
of the State of South Dakota and for the
organization of the Territory of North
Mr. Spooner addressed the Senate in fa»
of the bill. Alluding to the remark in
Mr. Butler's speech last week to the effect
that the precedent sought to be establish'
ed would justify 100,000 socialists getting
together in A, corner of a territory and
demanding admission as a state, he ask
ed what was the objection to their peti
tioning for admission? What harm had
petitioning ever done? They had tho in
herent right to get into the Uuion as
Htatos, just as »ertain states had claimed
that they had the inherent right to
yet out of the Ution. He did not believe
that south Dakota would be admitted by
this congress but he thought he might
safely prophasy that before long there
would be elected a congress that would
recognizo her rights and gladly weleome
her into the Union of states.
The motion in the House to suspend the
rules and pass the river and harbor bill
was defeated—yean, 134 nays, 102.
Mr. Wilkins, of Ohio, moved to suspend
the rules and pass the foil owing resolution:
Besotved. By the House of Representa
tives, that it is the sense of this house
that section 2 of the act making appropri
ations for sundry civil expenses of the
government for the year ending June 30.
'f*2, and for other purposes, approved
March 3, '81, which is as follows That
the secretary of the treasury may at any
time apply the surplus money in the treas
ury, now otherwise appropriated, or so
much thereof as he may consider proper
to the purchase or redemption of United
States bonds: provided that the konds so
purchased or redeemed Bhall constitute no
part of the sinking fund but shall be re
deemed and cancelled, was intended to be
a permanent provision of law, and the
same is hereby declared to have been since
its enactment, nnd to be now, in the opin*
ion of the House, in full force and effect.
Mr. Weaver, of Iowa, declared that this
resolution meant nothing more than the
defeat and burial of the house surplus
resolution with the Beck silver amendment.
He appealed to the ways and means com
mittee not to allow it to be buried and if
they did he appealed before God to the
country to visit retributive justice upon
Tiie resolution was finally adopted
yeas, 138 nays, 6-1. Adjourned.
Mr. McDonald introduced a bill declar*
ing all interstate pools or combinations
limiting or controlling the production, sale
or prico of any article of trade or com
merce to he unlawful and a criminal con
spiracy. He also presented a petition of
citizens of Goodhue county. Minn., asking
for the passage of the per diem pension bill.
Mr. Stewart offered a resolution (which
was agreed to) calling on the secretary of
the treasury for a statement of the
amounts of United States money deposit
ed in national banks, and whether the
hanks are allowed to use the money with
out the payment of interest.
•Senator Cullom introduced a bill pro*
viding that in all cases where it shall ap
pear that parties have paid $5.50 an acre
for lands reduced in prico to SI.25per acre
by the act of June 15, 1880, the secretary
of the interior shall be authorized to repay
to such parties the excess price of $1.25
per acre for such lands.
On motion of Mr. Plumb, the bill to for
feit certain lands heretofore granted for
the purpose of aiding in the construction
of railroads was taken up for considera
tion. A number of amendments were
offered and ordered printed.
The Senate then resumed consideration
of the hill for the admission of tho state of
South Dakota, and the organization of the
Territory of North Dakota, and was ad'
dressed by Mr. Vest in opposition to the
bill. The senator from Wisconsin (Mr.
Spooner) had waved yesterday that en
sanguined garment known as "the bloody
shirt," and scattered its ruddy remains
around the chamber. He had spoken of
recession, and said that there was no dif
ference between states trying to break out
of the union and states trying to break
into it. But what did that senator say of
states neither in nor out of the union,
which claimed to exist as a state in spite
of the laws and iu defiance of congress? If
any southern community had undertaken
what the people of Dakota had done,there
would have been an outcry immediately
only exceeded by that in regard to Ft.
A resolution was reported and adopted
asking the postmaster general for inform
ation concerning the rates of postage on
seeds, and whether Canadians are given
advantages over Americans engaged in the
A bill was reported for the location of a
branch soldiers' home in Grant county,
Bills were reported for the erection of
public buildings at Sioux City, Iowa, New
Orleans, La., Brownville, Tex., Hot
Springs, Ark., Helena, Mont., and Racine.
The bill to ereate boards of arbitration
for settling controversies between common
carriers and their employes, was reported,
as was the bill prohibiting theiraportation
of convict made goods.
Mr. Mills, of Texas, then moved that the
House go into committee of the whole for
the consideration of the tariff bill. No op
position was made to the motion and it
was carried without a division. And then
Mr. Mills made the leading speech on the
subject followed by Mr. Kelly, of Pennsyl
Mr. Evarts, from the committee on
foreign relations, reported back (adverse
ly) Mr. Riddleberger's resolution to sus
pend the rules as to executive sessions dur
ing the consideration of the fisheries treaty,
Tho Senate then resumed consideration of
the Senate bill to forfeit certain lands
heretofore granted for the purpose of aid
ing in the construction of railroads. No
progress was made with the bill, and the
Senate resumed the consideration of the
bill for the admission of South Dakota
as a state, and the organization of the
territory of North Dakota. Mr. Sherman
addressed the senate.
After a long speech, Mr. Sherman was
repliod to by Mr. Vost, the discussion hav
ing involved the Hayes-Tilden contest of
Mr. Belmont, of New York, Introduced a
bill to prohibit the coming of Chinese la
borers into the United States. Its main
provisions are similar to those contained
in the new treaty.
Mr. McCreary, of Kentucky, submitted
the conference report upon the bill author
izing the President to arrange a conference
between the United States and the South
ond Central American republics, Hayti,
San Domingo and the Empire of Brazil.
The floor was then accorded to the com
mittee on labor, and the bill to establish
a department of labor was passed.
The next bill called up was that to create
boards of arbitration for the settlement of
controvercies and differences between in
terstate common carriers and their em
ployes and it was considered in commit*
tee of the whole.
Mr. O'Neill,_ of Missouri, briefly explain
ed the provisions of the measure, stating
that it was substantially the same bill
which passed the last congress, but at too
late a day to receive presidential approv
al. The only difference was that the
pending bill provided for special boards of
arbitration to be appointed by the Presi
dent to inquire into the causes of etrikes
and report to congress.
Mr. Parker, of New York, regarded the
bill an good for nothing. It pointed no
where and went nowhere. It was a mere
temporary makeshift, and left all the
great questions which were troubling the
labor of the country precisely where they
were before, with a mere pretense that
congrcss had done something. It waa
sweeten ad wind. It was a cheat and fraud
upon the people of the country. He fav
ored law upon the subject which would
prevent the commerce of the country from
being paralyzed whenever a difference oc
curea between a railroad management and
Mr. Tillman of 8outh Carolina Hoped
that the house would not allow this
fraud to pass. It was as useless as a bal
loon. It was a mere tub io a whale.
Mr. Tawhey of Michigan favored the bill as
*n the right direction, although he
admitted that it did not reach the fouii
dation of the labor troubles.
4u ®ucbanan, of New Jersey, said that
the remark of the gentleman from New
York (Mr. Parker) that the bill was a
cheat, wa conspicuously inaccurate. The
committee on labor did not claim that
there was anything in the bill except a
Provision tor voluntary Arbitration.
Irave difficulties would beset the Ameri-1
can congress when it attempted to go
further than that.
Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, regarded
the measure as unconstitutional and un
The committee then rose, the bill was
passed, and the house adjourned.
Mr. Hoar offered a resolution, which was
referred to the committee on foreign rela
tions, providing that the official reporter
shall be admitted to report the debates
and proceedings of the senate when the
fisheries treaty shall be under considered
The senate then resumed consideration
ttl the bill for the admission of South Da
kota. ahd it Was finally passed by a strict
ly party vote.—Yeas 25, nays 23.
The House Went into committee of the
whole (Mr. Springer, of Illinois, in the
chair) for the further consideration of the
Indian appropriation bill. An amendment
was adopted appropriating $20,000 for the
education of Indian pupils in Alaska. An
amendment was adopted striking out the
provision for an inspector of Indian
schools and providing for a superintend
ent of Indian schools.
Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, offered an
amendment providing that at Indian day
ahd training schools where church organ
izations aire assisting in the educational
*ork, the Christiaii Bible may be taught
in the native language of the Indians, if, in
the opinion of the persons in charge of the
schools, it ia deemed conducive to the
moral welfare of tho people* Adopted.
No business was transacted in the sen
The house resumed consideration of the
Indian appropriation hill, the pending
question being on the motion of Mr. Ran
dall, to strike out the Choctaw judgment
section. This motion was lost and the
Mr. Townshend, of Illinois, from the
committee on military affairs, reported
his bill placing Gen. W. P. (Baldy) Smith
on the retired list with the rank of major
A motion to proceed to the considera
tion of private business was defeated by
the managers of the various appropriation
bills, and, on motion of Mr. Blanchard,
chairman of the committee on rivers and
harbors, the House went into committee
of the whole on such measures.
ToJay was the 100th day of the present
session. The total number of bills and
resolutions introduced in the Senate and
House up to this dato is 12,568, exceed
ing by more than 2.000 the number pre
sented in the first 100 days of the last
congress. Sc far the House has passed
425 bills and the Senate 831, and 183
House bills and 24 Senate bills have been
sent to the President for his approval.
Progress of Civilization.
''The night ends with storm yet re
joice they herald the morning," were
the last words of Erasmus, and in the
brightening light of the new day the
rizon of the future now plainly reveals
the verdure of wide forests, temples of
health and science, the fruit planta
tions of reclaimed fields and the gar
den homes of renaturalized men. The
progress of our latter-day civilization
has not yet reached its ultimate gaol,
but we can no longer doubt that the
principle of that progress is a reaction
against the doctrine of anti-natural
ism.* All the leading nations of the
Caucassian race are retracing their
steps from gliostland to earth. From
the Caucasus to the foot of theCorilil*
las. science is busy reclaiming the
blighted gardens of our earthly para
dise. ^]1 of our successful reformei's

regeneration.—North American Re.
The Lonely Man.
Robert Burdette has surely discov
ered the man who thinks the whole
world of journalism will collapse if he
revenged himself by crying, "Stop my
paper." He says:
There are 1,400,000,000 people
living on the planet which we inhabit.
And yet there is now and then a man
who wonders what the rest of us will
do when he dies. There are people in
"society" who honestly think that all
the worid closes its eyes when we lie
down to sleep. There are men who
iear to act according to their own
convictions, because, perhaps, ten
persons in a crowd of 1,400,000,000
will laugh at them. Why, if a man
could only realize every moment what
a bustline, busy, fussy* important lit
tie atom he is in all this great ant
hill of important, fussy little atoms,
every day he would regard himself
less, and think still less ot the other
molecules in the corral.
A Minister's Tact.
Perhaps as ready a tact as was
ever displayed in the pulpit was on
the part of a minister who became
the Ufe-long chaplain of Frederick the
Great. The king chose to decide be
tween anumberofapplicants by the
way in which they should deliver an
extexqpore sermon, the text to be
handed them in a sealed envelope as
they entered the pulpit. Sunday
came, and after prayers one ef the
king's aides presented the minister
with a sealed envelope. He opened
it and found it blank. He held up
one side and said: "My brethren, here
is nothing." Then, holding up the
other side, he said: "And here is
nothing, and of nothing God created
all things," and proceeded to deliver
a magnificent discourse on the power
and wonders of creation He obtain
ed the appointment, and held it
through his life time.
Feasting on Dog.
ego has a family of dog-eaters
It is reported that they actually raise
dogs for the table. We don't know
whether they preserve them for the
winter use or not, but suppose they
look after a supply for that purpose.
This is not a "pointer" for our butch
ers, but it is a fact. We have seen
the Kaw tribe of Indians cook dog for
a feast, and were invited to partake of
the dish, but always declined with
The new laboratory of the School of
Mines made the first run of Dakota tin ore
at Rapid City. The ruduction process
was a complete success. Plans for the
tion of large works for treating tin by this
were immediately formed by lead-
ng citizens. Prot. Emmons of New York,
who has been recently inspecting and in
vestigating mines, left for Chicago to look
for machinery. He promises to take one
fifth-of the stock of the new company.
The process is so simple and cheap,
it is thought the works cannot fail to pay.
The Northern Light, or "Hill's Boat No
1," as she has frequently been spoken of,
was successfully launched at Cleveland,
and measures 290 feet keel, 312 feet over
all, 40 feet beam and 24% feet hold. She
has an estimated carrying capacity of
2,800 tons, and an estimated speed of
twelve and one half miles per hour. As
soon as completed she will be put on the
Northern line between West Superior and
Buffalo and it is expected that she will be
joined during the season, by two moro
boats for the s&me line from the yard of
the same builders.

THE HUNTED KM,
it was a wild rocky* hilly country
through Which the path led, winding
about among bowlders and sfcrubby
trees, now skirting the edge Of the ra
vine, now crossing a brawling stream,
and again going straight over a rugged
Along this path a man wad walk
ting at a pretty rapid pace, look*
ing neither to the right nor left, but
with his fierce gray eyes fixed steadily
before him. He was of medium height,
well built, with broad, strong looking
ehoulders, in which there was a little
stoop. His hair and beard were of a
light, ashy brown, his complexion sal
low, and his features commonplace
enough,with the exception of his eyes,
in which there was a cold, cruel light.
He seemed to be well acquainted with
the country,pursuing his way without
hesitation, though occasionally he
came to a place where another path
intersected the one he was traveling
Walking thus, neither slacking nor
accelerating his gait, he came to a hill
much higher and steeper than any he
had yet crossed. Climbing this he
necessarily went slower and with
more difficulty, but the view that
greeted his eyes when he got to the
top would have well repaid him for
the toil of the ascent had he been one
to appreciate the beauties of nature.
Far away was a range of mount
ains, blue and misty in the distance*
the lines of elevation eradually sink
ing to the foot hills, which seemed td
roll away in great billows, breaking at
his very feet in a chaotic mass of
rocks, trees and glancing waters. But
this traveler had no eye for the beau
tiful—the distant mountains, Which
he stood still for a fooment to gaze
upon, were to him only a place of
refuge, and that distance which soften
ed their rugged features and lent en
chantment to them, he would gladly
have dispensed with.
With a heavy sigh, the first symp
tom of weariness he had shown, he
was about to resume his journey when
he suddenly came to a stand again,
turning his eyes, in which there was a
startled look, in the direction whence
he had come. He had heard a sound
that he too well knew. It was the
bay of a hound, just audible, far
away to the southeast. He listened
intently. The dog did not give voice
continuously, but only at intervals,
and his keen ear detected a difference
in the bays as they came nearer there
were two dogs running, and running
over the very route by which he had
come. He knew well what that meant.
He was not deceived. He did not al
low any hopeful fancy to persuade
him that those dogs were in pursuit
of any tour footed beast. It was a
man they were after—he knew it.
When the hound huntb the deer or the
wild cat his yelp is quick and joyous,
but when he hunts man his voice is
deep and sonorous and breaks on the
still air like the toll of the death bell.
The hunted man turned and looked
at the mountain again, and there was
a great longing in his fierce eyes. Alas!
those blue peaks—how far they were
away. Then, with the activity of the
panther, which he somewhat resem
bled in his nature, he bounded down
tho slope of the hill, at the foot of
which he plunged into a swiftly run
The water was not deep, coming up
to his knees, and wading through that
he ran a hundred yards or more, and
then turning retraced his steps. There
was a mountain ash growing about
twenty feet from the stream, its wide
spreading branches reaching out some
thirty feet from the trunk." Climbing
the tree, he clambered out on one of
the branches overhanging the water
and dropped from the end of it, wad
ing a considerable distance before
landing, when he hastened to the top
of another hill and stopped to listen
just an instant. He could hear the
doas plainly now they were rapidly
There was a place of refuge that he
knew of, where no man, he thought,
could find him. No man. But there
were the dogs, whose sense of smell
was more unerring than the intelli
gence of man. They would track him
to his hiding place in spite of all that
he might do. If he succeeded in reach
ing this place—it was not far away—
they could not get at him there, but
they would know that he was some
where near at hand. They would
know—ah, yes, the dogs would know,
but the men might think them at
fault and drive them off. There was
a chance ot that and it was the only
chance on which he could build a
hope. But come what would he would
die game they should not take him
alive. He had no weapon save a long
bladed knife, which ne drew from its
scabbard in his bosom, glancing at its
keen edge and thrusting io back again.
He was running while these thoughts
were passing through his brain, and
in a little while he came to a ravine,
the bottom of which he reached by
successive leaps from bowlder to
bowlder. Then he ran down the ra
vine until he came to a place where
the sides were high and precipitous.
A tree growing on the top of the cliff
on one side hung over the veree, and
from its gnarled and twisted branches
depended a stout grapevine that
reached about wo-thirds of the dis
tance from tho top to the bottom.
The man stopped hare and with much
difficulty clambesed up until he could
reach this vine, up which he went,
hand over hand, as a sailor goes up a
rope. About twenty feet from where
he started he ceased climbing, and
giving the vine a swinging motion,
after two three vibrations, sudden
ly disappeared, apparently into the
very face of the rock.
The hounds came on. They lost
the trail at the stream, up which the
fugitive bad waded. It delayed them
a little while—it was all he had ex
pected—and then they picked it up
again, following it eagerly and plung
ing into the ravine, their deep voices
echoinc among the rocks and' making
as great a clamor as though there had
been a full pack engaged in the chase.
Suddenly they stopped and began to
sniff about the foot'of the cliff' where
the man had climbed up, holding their
heads up and baying at regular inter
Three men now made their appear
ance, leading their horses, which they
\d been obliged to dismount, in or
der that they might pick their way
down an almost impracticable path.
The dogs were trying to crawl up the
face of the rock.
"Well, I'll be durned if thet chap
ain't clum' up to thet thar grapevine
an' gone up tnet like a equrrul, said
one of the men.
"Is there no way to get to the top
of this cliff?" asked one, who seemed
to be the chief of the party.
"This here cleft," said he who had
spoken first. "Oh, yes! tnar's a way
roun' but he'll heve got a good start
on us, an' I reckin thet's 'bout w'at
he was up to. They does try all man
ner er tricks when the dogs is behin'

see ef we can't catch up with him.
Here, Pete—here, Jack." to the dogs,
which were with some difficulty pre
vailed upou to leaVe the spot where
the trial ended.
When the little party at last reach
ed the top of the cliffs and the dogs
were set to work they failed to find,
though they went over the ground!

"Now thet W'at I calls cuVus,"
said the master of the hounds. "Thet

"Where did he gOi then?'* asked the
Officer of thd law, for such was the
chief df the party.
"N6w, thet's jes' w'at I'd like to

"No, stranger," said the man, "them

long es I hes had 'em I'll sw'ar by

The speaker then went to the verge
of the cliff, and, lying down on his
belly, looked over.
"Can't see nothin' from thar," he
said, getting up. Then he clambered
out on the trunk of the tree that over
hung the abyss. "By golly!" ho
shouted, "he's thar."
"In a hole down thar. Yer c'uldn't

"A bare'in's a barg'in," said the
other, unsheathing a big hunting knife
that was buckled round his waist
and sliding down the grapevine with
it gripped between his teetn.
When he got opposite the opening
in the wail of rock he held fast with
his hand, and taking the knife out of
hismouth with the right, called out.
Those above could hear all that was
said, though they could not see the
"Hellow, stranger!" he said, "kin

Waiting a few minutes and getting
no answer to his demand, he called
"ljook out the do', lan'lord," he
shouted "when folks is a wantin' to
stop at yer tavern is this here the
way to treat 'em? I know yer 're at

But the other, heeding not the warn
ing. gave his body a motion which
startad the vine swinging. It hung
twelve or fifteen feet away from the
cliff, which was concave, and it took
a few minutes to impart to it the
momentum necessary to bring it
near enough for him to risk the
leap he intended to take and while
he was still swinging, the man in the
cave, armed with his knife, climbed
upon the narrow ledge that sur
rounded the entrance to its hiding
place. He stood a moment as if
awaiting the assault of his adversary,
and then, seeming to change his mind,
crouched like a wild beast and sprang
at him where he hung, at the samo
time making a savage lunge with his
The man clinging to the vine was
perfectly cool, and prepared for just
such an attack as this. He had wrap

the other launched himself from the
rock, he threw the rtalit out with a
quick, vigorous jerk, planting his
heavy cowhide boot in the middle
of the fugitive's breast and dashing
him back against the cliff, at the foot
of which he fell in a heap, with no
more life in him than there was in the
bowlders among which he lay.—Rob

The Boston Record has been doing
its best to put to flight some fond
little illusions which American girls of
small means indulge in in regard to
going abroad and supporting them
selves while they study music, or paint
ing, or language. Some of these maid
ens imagine it the easiest thing possible
to obtain pupils in English and launch
themselves into a strange land with
out money to live upon, but with a
sublime confidence in their own powers,
which often brings them grief. For it
is true that Americans have not the
reputation among the careful foreign
matrons which will lead to their em
ployment when an Englishwoman can
be had. Nor is there the opportunity
to earn money by foreign correspond
ence that many believe exists. There
is so little that is new which the tele
graph leaves untold, and foreign modes
of living are so well understood now,
that it is only in rare cases that cor
respondence is paid for. The moral
of it all is that young women need to
have the money at hand tq pay their
way before going abroad to study or
A medical man compares an old

but one heavy load or sudden strain
will break it and ruin it forever. Many
people reach the age of fity or sixty or
seventy, measurably free from most
of the pains and infirmities of age,

ripe in wisdom and experience, with
sympathies mellowed by age. and
with reasonable prospects and oppor
tunities for continued usefulness in
the world ior a considerable time.
Let such persons be thankful, but let
them also be careful. An old consti
tution is like an old bone, broken with
sase, mended with difficulty. A young
tree bends to the gale, an old one
snaps and falls before the blast. A
single hard lift, an hour of heating
work, an evening of exposure to rain
or damp, a severe chill, an excess of
food, the unusual indulgence of an ap

of these may cut off a valuable life in
an hour, and leave the fair hopes of
usefulness and enjoyment but a
