CTORIES OF TH3 WAR.
Rcatfrlrable Recoveries of Men Who Wore Neirly Shot to Death. From the New York Sun. AT as hington', Oct. 10.—“ If the medical corps of the army should give their reminis cences they could add a great many in teresting stories to the inoidends of the war which make such popular reading to day," .->aid an ex-artny surgeon now connect ed With one of the departments in AA’ashing ton. “In 1863. I was the acting assistant sur „eon C) f the Eighteenth Pennsylvania Cav Tjl rv . We cros. pj the Potomac at Raccoon Foi k, and mare tied to Frederick, where the command was changed, Gen. Hooker succeeding Gen. Meade at the head of the division, and Gen. Stahei was made com mandant of calvery, in place of Gen, Pleas anton. On Sunday, Julo 2, the first brigade was encaged in a mnal! fight at Littles town, and following that we had another little flurry nt Red Mills. Then came the battle of Gettysburg. I was detailed to take charge cf the hospital at Hanover, which was a h few miles away from the field, and two or three days after the fight a poor fellow was brought in who had been found in a wheat field, shot all to pieces. Ho had lain in the hrmiing sun for three days without, food or -belter of any kind, and he was in a horri iilile condition. His case seemed a hopeless one from the moment we laid eyes upon him, but everything was done to case his dying hours, and to make him comfortable as he passed out of this world. Under the direc tion of the supervising surgeon, a large dose of morphine was administered m order that he might pass away with as little consciousness of pain as possible. Rut forty-eight hours afterward be still lived, and did not seem at all inclined to quit. “Just the a young lady from Hanover, who had been helping around the hospital, asked if there were any special cases of which she might take charge. She was told that there were, and was assigned to look after this poor fellow. She did tier work so well that shortly after he was able to be removed from the field hospital to a better one, where he continued to improve, and, shortly after, entirely recovered. This man's name was McEwen, and he had been a pri vate in a Missouri regiment. AVben dis charged as convalescent lie at once married the young lady who had done so much to ward saving h>s life, and soon afterward re turned to his command, where ho rapidly arose in rank, and was finally mustered out as a Captain.” “There was another interesting case which came under my observation. At the battie of Ballard's Dam, seven miles below Fal mouth, Lieut. W. C. Weeks of the Fifth Michigan Cavalry, received a shot wound in the foot which entirely shattered all the interior bones. He was taken to the rear and attended by' Dr. Wooster of the First Michigan Cavalry and Dr. Wood, of the Fifth Now York These surgeons at once announced that his entire foot would have to tie amputated,, but Weeks declined to have the operation to lie performed until he had seen the surgeon ef his own regiment, Dr. Arthur K. St. Clair, in whom he had the utmost confidence. As soon as it could be that, a portion of it could be saved. It was late at night, but an improvised sur geon's table was prepared and a number of tallow diyis were lighted in order that the operation might be properly performed. Then Dr. St. Ciair dissected out all the an terior bones of the foot and brought dowu the heel bone, so that it was directly under instead of behind the extremity of the leg. From this bone he removed the articulating surface, and. bringing a flapof flesh around, finished what is known as the Pirogoff op eration. "This was the first and only time that this operation was performed during the war. The neld hospital wos not a very con venient place for a man to recover from such a wanna as this had been, and Weeks was sent on to Washington, where he nad quar ters in the hospital on Armory' square. Here the attending surgeons examined him and decided that, inasmuch as there was great danger of blood poisoning, and little hope of saving even a portion of the foot.he must submit to an amputation of the lower portion of the leg. AVeeks absolutely re fused to have this done. He said that Dr. St. Clair had told him that wit h proper care he might recover, and he believed in St. Clair more than any other surgeon in the army. This somewhat disgusted the doc tors, who had little time for sympathy in those days, and Weeks was allowed to re main with very little attention. He laid t here for some weeks, growing constantly worse and almost neglected, until one day Senator Zach Chandler visited the hospital looking for Michigan men. “Weeks heard his voice as he passed through the wards and shouted to Chandler that he was a Michigan man, and that if lie did not receive attention he would surely die. Chandler responded in his charac teristic style: i “ ‘By G—d if there is .-my (Mi'e this side of h ihat a Michigan man wants he shall have it,’ and he was as good as his word. “Under the patronage of the Senator, AVeeks lingered along for some time, suffer ing greatly from blood poisoning and from malarial complications, but finally lie re covered and was discharged. A\ hen last heard from he was living in Allegan and wore an artificial foot, upon which he was able to get around very nicely.” New Jersey’s Wild Man. From the Philadelphia Times. Greenwood Luke is one of the summer re ports to which Jei-seymen and Gothamites flee when the summer sun begins to slant its torrid rays. The lake is in the midst of a hilly and well wooded and sparsely settled country. There has been talk for years of the presence of a “wild man” in these woods, and the report was verified on Sun hay, w hen tne creature was captured. But he got away again to his native wilds, and the story of his capture and escape is inter esting as well as exciting. For a few days past the simple people of the little mountain hamlet of Mountain View, in Passaic county, have been in a state of alarm and excitement over the sud den appearance of the wild man in the woods near the town. Hunting parties "ere formed to capture him. They scoured the woods in every direction, but could dis cover no trace of him. A large hunting party which scoured the "'Kids ou Saturday tracked the wild man, and after a long chase brought him to bay early Sunday morning, lie turned on his pursuers and fought with frantic despera tion. He seized a club and swung it about so that it was dangerous to get near him. At last two of the hunters seized him. The wild man struggled with almost sujxt human strength. Not till he was utterly exhausted were his captors able to overpower him. They bound him securely and took him to the town. The wild man could talk, hut about all he said was: “I want grass. Give me some grass. I am hungry.” Inquiries concerning who he was and why he lived in the woods, brought no answer. 110 seemed to be about GO years old, though hisago would not be oasy to determine. His garments wore in tatters, and he seemed to I* on the verge of starvation. His eyes "ere big and wild, his face was thin and haggard. As there wns no jail in the little town to put him in, and as the inhabitants were all afraid of him, he was taken to the He! a ware and Lackawanna railroud station and locked up in a little shelter for a switch man. Station Agent Bean telegraphed here requesting that policemen be scut to Moun tain View to take the man into custody. While the excited inhabitants of Sloun tain View were awaiting the arrival of the Police, the wild man wrenched the wooden bars lrom tho window of the little shanty " here he was confined and jumped out. He fan for the woods, with scores of people funning and shouting after him. They sept up the chase across fields and through woods, but the wild man ran with the speed of a deer. He reached the forest, plunged into the thicket and disappeared. Au organized effort will be made to capture him. A GAMBLER’S LUCK. He Borrows $5 from a Friend and Conies Near Breaking the Bank. From the Milwaukee Sentinel. Starting with a borrowed $o bill “to play the bank,” Conrad Stoll won *>6,600 at faro in four of the principal gambling houses in this city between Tuesday noon aud mid night on Saturday. It was perhaps the biggest winning ever made in what might be termed a single sitting by one man in this city'; at least it is the largest in the memory of some of the oldest gamblers. It was a “crusher” on the “bank rolls,” for the gaming-houses were the looser®, aud it is said that in one of the houses he “broke the bank,” the proprietor being obliged to “turn the box,’’ indicating that the capital was exhausted. The losses were divided as follows: Gilligan’s, £2,200: Morton’s, £1,600; Sholes’s, £1,000; Howard’s £BOO. Stoll is not a professional gambler. Ho is an engineer on the St. Paul road, and lives at 800 Eighth street with his wife, formerly Rosina Georg, who a few years ago attained considerable notoriety as proprietress of a dance-house in the Ninth Ward. After its suppression by' Mayor Stowell and the po lice, she married Stoll and settled down to enjoy the income from the extensive prop erty interests which she had accumulated. Stoll followed his profession as a locomo tive engineer, occasionally taking a lay-off to “buck the tiger.” It was during one of thase periods that he strolled into the “Broadway House” on Tuesday He was “dead broke” and borrowed $5 to sit into a poker game. AVhen he quit he had won £2O. With this in his pocket he dropped into Morton’s rooms, on East AA'ater street, and bought a “stack of chips” on tbe faro lay-out. His stack grew larger and then it commenced to fall, until it was down to $lO. He divided it into two stacks of $5 each, and planted it on the last turn of the cards out of the box. One stack he “cop pered,” while the other he “played open” It was even chances to win or lose and he "called the turn,” doubling his money. This was tbe beginning of the luck that fol lowed hint until he accumulated the $5,600. Calling nearly every turn of the cards, when he quit he cashed in £450. AVednes day, Thursday, Friday aud Saturday he played for hours each day, going from one house to another, winning by f the hundreds. His biggest winning was on Saturday, when he pulled $1,600 out at Gilligau’s rooms without leaving his chair. He was given a “limit” of SIOO on a single turn of a card out of the box, and he played it. At mid night Saturday Stoll called himself $5,000 winner, and had a roll wrapped up in a SI,OOO certificate. The roll was “as big as your leg, - ’ as one of tbe profession expressed it. However, at midnight his luck changed, and although ho played hard to regain it, he lost steadily until 7 o’clock yesterday morning, when he quit the game, having lost S7OO since midnight in Giliigans rooms, leaving him $4,900 “ahead of tbe game.” In addition to their losses to Stoll, the houses lost considerable money to other plavers, who, attracted by Stoll’s unusual luck, followed his play, One well-known merchant won SBOO Saturday night, while the other single winnings reached into the hundreds. Stoll’s exploit was the one topic of discussion among the gamblers yester day. SWALLOWED HER TEETH. How a Physician’s Skill and an Um brella Rib Saved a Lady’s Life. From the New York Herald. “.Mrs. swallowed her plate. Won't you please come to the house right away J” “She must have been pretty hungry,” was the answer Dr. Charles Bliss gave the ser vant who made this announcement to him a few days ago. “It’s a plate with her teeth on it,” was the reply. The doctor burned to the address given, near Central Park, and found the family physician trying to dislodge the obstruction. The plate was in the shape of a horseshoe, with one tooth at each end and gold clasps beyond them for surrounding the two ad joining natural teeth. The patient, who was a lady weighing over 300 pounds, was almost suffocated— scarcely able to gasp for breath. Dr. Bliss tried to pull the plate up, but the clasps had caught in the tissues, and he succeeded only in pulling off one of the teeth. In a few minutes the patient stopped breathing en tirely. Something had to be done instantly or she would die. They were without surgical instruments. Dr. Bliss pulled out a penknife and cut a slit in the lady’s throat, through w hich he could feel the plate. She breathed once. This was encouraging. He dashed to the corner of the room, tore a rib from an um brella standing there, wrapped his handker chief around the end and by main force pushed the plate down into the patient’s stomach. Then he sewed up the gash in the throat, and left strict orders to keep her perfectly quiet all night, mid forbade her any food or drink of any kind, even water, before he arrived the next day. The pa tient’s throat was, of course, inflamed, but the doctor’s orders were obeyed, although her thirst was intense. Next morning early she bribed one of the servants to get her a quart of ice cream and ate every bit of it. AVhen the doctors called, soon after, Dr. Bliss merely remarked that he “hoped she would keep cool,” ordered two ounces of castor oil and a bowl of oatmeal gruel and left her chatting merrily with her relatives, who would have been preparing her for the grave had it not lieen for the common sense and skill of Dr. Bliss. An Exemplary French Millionaire. Paris Dispatch to London Telegraph. A French millionaire cuts but a very in different figure in comparison with an English one. The Gallic variety has but the trifling sum of 1,000,000 francs, or £40,000, placed to his account when his countrymen one and all accord him the title. A real substantial millionaire from the English point of view has. however, been discovered in the person of M. Arnaud Oyarcabal, who has just returned from South America to his native town of St. Palais, in the Basque Provinces, where in his youth he helped Ills father to sell goat’s mule. From his own countrymen’s point of view the successful goatherd is thirty times a millionaire, for he possesses 30,000,000 trances, or £1,200,000 sterling. Fifty years ago Arnaud Oyarcabal went out to Buenos Ayres with his father. For a long time the two Basque iieasants found the Argentine Republic anything but an El Dorado, where, as in tho imagination of many a poor emigrant, men pick up gold in the streets. They suffered so much hard ship and misery that the older man died, and his son became a servant in the house of a wealthy land-owner who lived in the outskirts of Buenos Ayres. The land owner had no family, and lie was so thank ful for the devoted attendance of his Basque servant that he made Oyarcabal his sole legatee. On tho death of his master the ex goatherd purchased several lots of land between the Paraguay and the .Salado, and these he sold in a few years at ten times their original value. M. Oyarcabal’s return to his native town of St. Palais has, of course, made a great sensation in that rather primitive locality, and he is the wonder of the day all over the department of the Lower Pyrenees. Far from dissipating his doubloons amid the distractions and tempta tions of Paris, "’here he might have a Renaissance villa in one of the Bois de Bou logne avenues, a stud of racers, a box at the opera and be chronicled diurually, like many of the millionaires from the New World, as the giver of Luculluslike dinners and the cultivator of expensive exotics, he prefers to spend the evening of his days in the shadow of his native hills and to do good to the people among whom his early life was passed. Safe and Sure. A remedy manufactured at home and having a record for some of the most won derful cures known, is a safe one to use. There is no experimenting, but simply fol lowing the lead and using tho best. Such a remedy is P. P. P., the greatest Blood Puri fier of the age, a sure cure for every skin and blood disease. It can be obtained from all medicine dealers. THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1887. A MISSISSIPPI ROMANCE. A Girl Married to the Youth Who Was Acquitted of Killing Her Uncle. From the Baltimore American. The Circuit Court of Calhoun county, Miss., in session at Coffeeviile, has had the climax of a romance. The last case on the docket, was that of the St ate against Robert and Simou AVoodward, who were indicted tor the murder of Archie Douglass, an old man who lived eight miles cast of Coffee ville on the Vann Mills road. In June of last year Bob Woodward, a youth 20 years of age, began paving court to Alice Douglass, a niece of the Archie Douglass who was killed. He soon gained her affection, and the two, hand in hand, approached the uncle, asking his consent to an early mar riage. Douglass immediately flew into a passion, and ordered the young man to leave the house, saving at the same time: “Bob AVoodward, I have told you never to darken my door again, and you heed my words, for if you ever attempt to see her or have any communication with Alice, I’ll shoot you on sight.” This was a total surprise to the young couple, who had an ticipated no trouble in gaining the old man's consent. An elopement was soon planned. The young lover, accompanied by his brother Simon an i a frienu, came to town on Aug. 26, secured a marriage license, and, waiting until night, rode out to Douglass’ residence. On nearing the gate Bob gave tlie signal agreed on, but as no answer was returned Simon, his brother, volunteered to creep around to the girl’s window, and see what was the mutter. The young man had not taken a dozen steps before Archie Douglass stepped from the shadows of the house, aud without speaking, presented a double-barreled shotgun full at his breast and pulled the trigger. The gun missed fire, and before Douglass could try the other barrel, the young man had drawn a re volver ad sent a bullet through his heart. Douglass sank to the ground dead, and the young men, mounting their horses, rode back to town and surrendered themselves to the Sheriff. When court came on a change of venue was taken to Calhoun county. This delayed the trial for a year, and it was not until this term that the" boys had to an swer tlie charge ot murder in the first de gree. The jury brought in a verdict of justifiable homicide, and the two brothel's were at once discharged. Immediately Bob Woodward rose from bis seat, made his way through tlie crowd of spectators to where a veiled female sat, ana, extending bis arm to her, led her back with him until both were facing the Judge, when Wood ward, presenting the license he had pur chased a year before, asked to be married. Tbe Judge soon tied the knot, and the young couple, accompanied by a cheering mob, repaired to their home. A FOSSIL CONTINENT. Australia as a Surviving Fragment of the Primitive World. From the Cornhill Magazine. If an intelligent Australian colonist were suddenly to be translated backward from Collins street, Melbourne, into the flourish ing woods of tlie secondary geological period—say about the precise moment of time when the English chalk downs were slowly accumulating, speck by speck, on the silent floor of some long-forgotten Mediter ranean—the intelligent colonist would look around him with a sweet smile of cheerful recognition, aud say to himself in some sur prise: “AA’hy, this is just like Australia.” The animals, the trees, the plants, the in sects, would all more or less vividly remind him of those he had left behind him in his happy home of the southern seas and the nineteenth century. The sun would have moved back on the dial of ages for a few million summers or so, indefinitely (in geol ogy we refuse to be bound by dates), and would have landed him at last, to his im mense astonishment, pretty much at the exact point whence lie first started. In other words, with a few needful quali fications, to be made hereafter, Australia is, so to speak, a fossil continent, a country still in its secondary age. a surviving fragment of the primitive world of the chalk period o* early ages. Isolated from all the remainder of the earth about the beginning of the ter tiary epoch, long before the mammoth and the mastodon had yet dreamed of appearing upon the stage of existence, long before the first shadowy ancestor of the horse had turned tail on nature’s rough draft of the still undeveloped and unspecialized lion, long before the extinct dinot.heriums, and gigantic Irish elks, and colossal giraffes of late tertiary times had even begun to run their races on tbe broad plains of Europe and America, the Australian continent found itself at an early period of its devel opment cut off entirely from all social inter course with the remainder of our planet, and turned upon itself, like the German philosopher, to evolve its own plants and animals out of its own inner consciousness. The natural consequence was that progress in Australia has been absurdly slow, and that the country, as a whole, has fallen most wofully behind the times in all mat ters pertaining to the existence of life upon its surface. Everybody knows that Aus tralia, as a whole, is a very peculiar and original continent; its peculiarity, however, consists, at bottom, for the most part in the fact that it still remains at very nearly the same early point of development which Europe had attained a couple of million years ago or thereabouts. "Advance, Aus tralia,” says the national motto; and, in deed, it is quite time nowadays that Australia should advance, for so far she has l>een left out of the running for some four mundane ages or so at a rough computation. They Were Not Married. Colonel George C. Grogan, a well-known lawyer, tells a curious story concerning tbe Glanton divorce case now pending in court at Elberton, Ga. Mrs. Glanton sued for divorce and alimony in 1881. Continues Mr. Grogan: “AA’e brought suit and ob tained one verdict. In the meantime we effected a good settlement as to alimony. Mrs. Glanton by some means learned that Mr. Glanton was as anxious to be divorced as she was, and with a vindictiveness worthy of a better cause dismissed her case. A few years afterwards Mr. Glanton brought his suit for divorce. Mrs. Glanton defended the case, and because Mr. Glanton refused to admit the marriage, the case was decided in her favor. About a month ago, I receiv ed a letter from South Georgia that ends this case in rather an unusual way. It seems that when Mr. Glanton married his wife she was a widow Carter, or represented herself as such. This was in January, 1874. But in 1865, in Taylor comity, she was mar ried to Charles Carter. Bhe and Carter shortly separated, and he went to Florida. There ho married another wife. His wife — our Mrs. Glanton—followed him to Florida and prosecuted him for bigamy. He was sentenced May 7, 1870, for the term of two years. Strange to say, his wife No. L after having prosecuted him, stayed in Florida and used her wonderful energy in trying to get him pardoned. But on July 18, 1870, Curtcr escaped, and until about a month ago •notiiing was heard of him. How the report reached Carter 1 don’t know, but he heard that Mrs. Glanton imd become wonderfully rich, and uJso'bWd that sue was dead. This suddenly revived his love. He, through his agent, opened a eori'espondenoe with me. T pretended that the report was true as to Mrs. Glanton’s wealth, because I wanted to get at the truth of this episodo. About two weeks ago yyu may have notioed a stranger animal hero—a modest looking, middle-aged man, with blue eyes, brown hair and light complexion, about five feet five inches high. He stayed only two days. This was Charles Carter. He found out that Mrs. Glanton was not rich. This did not seem to disturb him much; but when he learned she was living he left these parts in a hurry. So this ends the romance. Mr. Glanton is not a married man, and Mrs. Glanton is Mr*. Carter.” The cleansing, antiseptic and healing qualities of Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy are unequalled. a Before buying your dress trimmings look at Gutman's. CHEAP ADVERTISING. ONE CENTA WORD.
