The case was tried by a jury of six, who decided in favor of the d cfendant. Subscribe for the Tribune.

The stomach complaint—nausea and incessant vomiting—in this neighborhood, seems almost an epidemic. The matter is worthy investigation by our doctors. Several parties that have been sick lately with this complaint have called our atten tion to it, and attribute it to some impurity in the drinking water. This may he bare ly possible, but we are more inclined to think the trouble due to the eating of half ripe fruit or new potatoes. It is well to remember, however, that water may be clear and palatable and yet contain impuri ties injurious to health. We can not al ways detect these impurities with the aid nf the senses. Here is a simple test that we learned at school, and any one can try it, as it requires only agents that are ob tainable at the drug store. Thoroughly cleanse with boiling water an ounce vial and fill it with distilled water, into which dissolve one grain of potassa permanganate. Fill a second ounce vial with the water to be tested (after cleansing the vial with boiling water) add to this vial of water one drop from tbs first vial containing the per manganate dissolved, and allow it to stand without agitation. If the water be comes entirely colorless add another drop from the test solution, and should it again become colorless, proceed as before until a slight color becomes permanent. This denotes that the organic matter in the water has been decomposed by the perman ganate solution. Water which becomes perfectly clear after having added to it only tnit tiroes of the solution is unfit lor use. to he by of it EXCURSION AM» PICNIC. Arrangements are being made under the auspices of the Sunday school of Grace M. E. church for an excursion and picnic to Melrose Aug. 26.

James and Thomas Farfet ex pect the arrival of their wives and families from Pennsylvania on next Monday. Mr. James Ever* was so severely at tacked by rheumatism, that he was obliged to go to tire Warm Springs for relief. The company boarders are flourishing under their thrifty Chinese cooks and the wise management of their new boarding boss, Mr. Chisolm. We arc glad to learn that a doctor from California ha* established himself here, as he is a |iersoii much needed, for previously medical aid could only be procured by sending to Glendale. The people are supplied with vegetables by Mr. Mattocks and other ranchmen from tiie valleys, while the store, managed by Mr. Earle who is very courteous and obliging, supplie* tlieir wants in dry goods and groceries. There is an average of sixty cars, each holding two and a Half tons, leaving the ore-house every day, with ore for the con centrator and smelter and daily shipments of bullion are made from the Glendale smelter to Omaha. The school is well attended. There are thirteen pupils receiving instruction from our enthusiastic young school-teacher, and tlieir merry laughter, accompanied by the gentle tones of the recalling school-bell pleasantly awakes the little town and echoes through the surrounding moun tains. Though Hecla employs over one hun dred and fifty miners, it is a quiet, sober, industrious little town. There is compar atively liule drinking and quarrels seldom occur. Though tiie people mind their own business, they are sociable and treat strangers with the kindest hospitality. Pleasant weather is enjoyed by the peo ple of Hecla. Though not oppressive, as it is in the valley's, it is quite warm for so high an altitude, and frequent showers of refreshing rain keep the air moist and everything green. Hecla would make a very pleasant summer resort, but the win ters are long and the snow-slides are much dreaded. Under the supervision of Mr. Prout, the mines are looking well. Work goes stead ily on, night and day, all week, in the Ari adne and Cleopatra and while it docs not diminish the size of the mountain on tiie outside, the daily excavations are leaving large areas of open ground on the inside. A great deal of prospecting is being done in other mines, which, as they are devel oped, look more and more encouraging, and we think there will he large bodies of ore exposed in the near future. to is GLENDALE GATHERINGS.

Saloons are increasing in Glendale deal ing out death, destruction and demoraliza tion, and every victim says, "the fumes of the smelter are terrible." Iv to a in RUMORED DEAL IN COl'PKK. Helena Independent: Hon. Sam Word says that it is talked in Butte that J. B. Haggin, the owner of the Anaconda, has succeeded in making a combination with the English copper dealers who contiol Chili bars and they have purchased the entire output of the Calumet and Hecla for some time to rame at 10% cents working through outside buyers. Should this prove true the price of copper may be expected to advance soon to say, 12 or 15 cents as Chili bars and the outputs of the Calumet and Hecla and the Anaconda are so large a majority of the copper product of the world as to corner the market when handled in harmony. This result Mr, Haggin has for some time sought to attain while the Calumet and Hecla has persist entv depressed the market to force the Anaconda out of production. Huckten'» Arnica Salve.

Detrimental foods which, by reason of tlieir superior strength, may not seriously aftect the health of adults, as is well known, frequently acts upon the more del icate organs of the child to produce disorders of the most serious char acter. The amount of laudanum or other poison that would be harmless to an adult will cause the death of an infant. This great difference between the vitality of adults and children is too generally overlooked in the prepara tion of food. Because no harm immediate of in of Iv perceptible comes to the adult by the i use ot an article of food, no thought is given to the effect it may have on the more deli cate organs of inferior age. Children diet largely upon cake and bread, and these articles, if light, sweet and composed of materials that are free from injurious substances, are easily digested, mitritrious and wholesome, There is a a danger to our children, however, lurking in their bread and cake which is too often lost sight of. These articles arc now leavened largely by baking powders, and when pure and wholesome baking pow ders are used they make not only the most palatable food, but one much more whole some and nutritive than if leavened with veast 01 cream of tartar and soda. Tiie trouble arises from the tact as shown by re cent scientific tests by the Government chemists and by official boards of heath, that all these baking powders, with the sin gle exception of the Royal, contain cither lime, alum, phosphates, or acids of an in juries character. Therefore when bread or cake is made with the use of these cheap baking powders these ingredients (which are present through the efforts of the man ufacturers to produce a cheaper article) pass into the food and are taken into the delecatc organs of childhood where they are the source of very much of the disease with which our children are afflicted. Persons who have not strong constitu tions, growing girls, young children and nursing mothers are particularly liable to the evil effects produced by the introduc tion of the adulterants named as found in the cheap baking powders. Heartburn and tiie prevalent forms of indigestion are often solely traceable to the action of alum on the dclecate coats of the stomach. Prof. Willard Parker, U. S. Surgeon-Gen Hammond, Prof. Alonzo Clark, most emi nent phy sicians of New York, with scores of others, have written and spoken most earnestly of the evils arising from partak ing of sucli food. There should be as much care in the choice of a baking pow der as in obtaining pure milk or in having a prescription compounded from pure drugs and not from poisons. The matter is one of the greatest import ance, particularly to the rising generation, and while our conservative law makers are making up their minds as to the proper legislation to stop the sale of the poisonous compounds, mothers will do weil to study it carefully. The housekeeper will exper ience no inconvenience in discarding the use of the adulterated baking powder, if she has been using it as the Royal Baking Powder upon the purity and wholesome ness of which all the Government chem ists agree, is equally accessible; but she will need to exercise a close watch upon her packages from the grocer in order, to prevent the inferior brands from creeping into her kitchen unawares. In what we have felt it onr duly to say in reference to the subject of baking pow der there is no intention to disparage the work or the products of those many manu facturers in other lines of products who, with conscientiousness and liberality, are serving the public with pure and whole some articles of diet. be 15 ELDER DUNCAN'S APPOINTMENTS.
