Sick head acnes I would call them He was thin, delicate and frail. His ear was running con tinually. The di-charge of matter from his ear was very offensive. He was restless at night and would almost go Into fits. The catarrh affected his appetite and he got very thin and pale In fact he was a total wreck. On the 18th of February I took Clarence to Bee Drs. McCoy & Wildinan, of No. lKJDChest nut street, Philadelphia The running in Clarence's ear made him partly deaf and the discharge was so offensi ve t hat I didn't send him to school.

He has oniv had one headache since I took him to Drs. McCoy A* Wildman. and he Bleeps and eats better than he did, so that I know they've done him a great deal of good. Yes, Clarence has im proved wonderfully, and i can say that Drs McCoy A- Wildman have done wonders for him." Mr. Sherwood is very proud of his three boy sand of his chubby little girl and his bahy. Mr. Sherwcod is a good talker and an enter taining, intelligent man. He lui - a brother who is an engineer, on the P., W. & B railroad running between Wilmington and PhiJa delphta.

Cleveland, O., April 15,— Th« police and detectives reject the story of Miss Maud Kelso, who strangely disappeared Thursday evening, cams home Friday uoou in a piti able condition, and related a narrative of nbductiou and violent treatment to accouut for her absence. Tho officers aro trying to make it apjiear that .Miss Kelso, who is only 15 years of age, called at a house that even fog which she had been forbidden to visit. Although its occupants are not of known bad character, they assume she met some one there who induced her to drink wine and enticed her to Botno building not fur away, and that the girl invented the ab 'S'jetion story to bide ter disobedience. If the officers are right the guilty parties can not weil escai» detection. But Miss Kelso, who has now recovered her mental equili brium, sticks firmly to her origitin! story. There is us yet no clew to her abductors' identity. A Steamer's Thrilling Experience.

The May future, which closed at88J< cents Sat urday, opened at 00 cents, immediately booming to 02'^ cents, and then falling to 89 cents. There was talk of a corner, but the principal cause for th-se strange fluctua tions appeared to be the terribly oversold market. The shorts were frightened and rushed into the market to buy, but found very little for sale. A panic resulted, and after a little was sold the longs offered so much that prices fell quicker than they ad vanced. A Dime Novel Devotee's Suicide. Pittsburg.

It wasan ordinary iron bound kerosene oil barrel, and its destination wap painted on the barrel head, as described iu the cable: "Bert sford Brothers, Racine, Win, via New York." A pasteboard tag tacked to the head of tho barrel indicated that its contents had been officially examined March 4 by Dr. G orge W.

Deputy Burr ordered it removed to a small room on tho upper floor and sent Big John Kavelin, one of the laborers, to take out the head the barrel. Big John laughed at the ideaof there being a human body iu the barret A Ghostly Discovery. Big John stuck the edge of his hatchet be tween the barrel head and the staves and began to pry it open. The head came off with n jerk. Big John jumped backward nml bis hatchet fell from his hand. The sight revealed to those who stood about was horrible in the extreme. Stick ing up from the lime which filled the barrel was a human head aud a man's hahd aud forearm. A dark beard ami mustache wat matted to the face, the features of which were dark and distorted, und on the second Huger ol the hand was a plain gold ring.

This wat of a dark material, but it had been so cov ered witli the lime that it was impossible tc make out whether it was plain or figured. Nor could any one guess the age of the murdered man, the features were so dis torted. The lid was quickly replaced and fastened tightly.

London, April 15.—It la now no secret that the British East Africa society has de cided anil has already begun preparations to send on expedition from Mombassa to the debatable lake territory iu tho interior of Africa iu advance of the proposed German expedition to he headed by Emin. The vari ous stories concerning the purpose at Emin's return to the interior have aroused the aus* plcions of the British East African peopl. that, it is not philanthropy on the part of the former governor of the Egyptian equatorial province or his employers that induced Emin to engage to re-encouutor the hard shi|ie of inter-African life, but rather a de sire to forestall the British in actual occa* patiou of the lake country, the most fruit ful and desirable of any of the territory yet explored.
