What is Scrofula It fs that imparity in the blood, which, accumu lating in the glands of the neck, produces un sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which devclopes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or deafness ; which is tho origin of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other manifestations usually ascribed to " humors.* It is a more formidable enemy than consumption or cancer alone, for scrofula combines tho worst possible features of both. Being the most ancient, it is the most general of oil diseases or affections, for very few persons are entirely free from it. How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa parilla, which, by the cores it has accomplished, often when other medicines have failed, has proven itself to be a potent and pecnliar medicine for this disease. For all affections of the blood Hood's Sarsaparilla is unequalled, and some of tho cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you suffer from scrofula In any of Us varions forms, be sore to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial. Hood's Sarsaparilla Soldbyalidrnggist8. £1; six for 85. Prepared only by C. I.

Here- j tofore the annual meetings have been held in September, but last year the date of the coming meeting was changed ; to the third Thursday of October.

Aft electric line man met with a hor rible death at the corner of Center and Chambers streets, in Now York yester its ing ; I j the ! day afternoon, from contact vith an electric light wire. He was etuploved i , „ ... . ... . ! 4 by the Western Union company, and | . , , 1 , i presented a terrible sight, as he died on a net-work of wires in mid air, while the deadly fluid actually made his body siz zle, mid the blood poured out on the sidewalk and over the clothes of the hor- j rifled spectators. The accident occur- ; ing in the middle of the day in one of the busiest parts of the city, was wit- ! nessecl by a large crowd of people. The man's body lay limp and motionless over a mass of wires attached to the cross trees of polls. The firemen brought a ladder and one of them went up with a pair of shears to cut the wires. The lineman was found to be dead. Mayor Grant was immediately notified and or dered that the wires that caused the ac cident be cut at unco. His secretary said that the mayor would act promptly in the matter, and it is possible that he may order the cutting off of all the elec tric light wires above ground, whereupon a large part ojt the city will be iu dark ness. ! j ! ! era the ! ! i I six the Senator Sie waif on Irrigation. Washington dispatch: Senator Stew art of Nevada, who was at the head of the senate committee which during the past sammer investigated thi' subject of irrigation of the arid plain* »f the wo»t, the northwest and smith west by federal aid, „ , i » ... 1 and who\;siced various portionsol Mon tana, made some observations which are of special interest. He thinks that for every dollar put into irrigation ten will very soon be taken out. He advocates ,, J , I , , the storage system and says people own ng arid lands should combine to store j water. Westward waters that flow to : the Pacific are the Missoula, Deer Lodge, j Bitter Root, Blaekfoot and some minor streams, all of which are tributary to the Columbia basin, in which within west Washington and Oregon there are certainly 12,000,000 acres to be reclaimed. At Bozeman he saw very fine grain and alfalfa fields, at Missoula splendid oich ards and at Yakima and Ellonsburg, in 1 the west Washington, splendid examples of 1 all-round farming, the result of irrig«, at tion. The average rainfall is about thir teen inches east of the Rookies; it is about fifteen inches west thereof. There are some portions between the Rockies' western sl<ipes and the Cascades which, owing vo peculiarities of topography, al lowing the passage of the Chinook or moist warm winds of the North Pacific, belong to the subhumid division and re quire some irrigating. Senator Stewart with pride displays a table showing the area of new canals under way in Mon tana, where he found the most individ ual enterprise in the way of irrigation. He thinks Montana wifi.be one of the greatest states in the union, with proper irrigation. »ii Favor of the Kailroaila. Washington dispatch: In the case of the Central Pacific Railroad company, Secretory Noble has overruled the de cision of Commissioner Sparks made May 31,1887, which required the com pany to file with its list of lands selected under its grants the usual non-mineral affidavit in use in agricultural cases gen erally. The practice in the case of land grant railroad companies is for the agent to make out lists of land within the grant and submit the same to tho de but is nin the to the has partaient with an affidavit to the p]«t by the surveyor that tho returns, show the lands to lie non-niincra\. Mineral lands are reserved from the grants is sued. An agricultural claimant must take oath that he knows from personal inspection that the kind he claims is non mineral in character. The secretary i () j holds inasmuch as the existing require-1 . ments were complied with by tho com- j J pany at the dale of selection, no retro-1 ■ active rule should be applied to it. These selections were made during the years 1885-86. Sirhilar rulings were made i« the cases of the Southern and Atlantic A Pacific railroad companies. These de cisions will release freun suspension and pass to patent about 6,(XK1,000 acres of land, within these grants. Tlie Official Canvass in Silver lion. A Butte dispatch of Saturday says: "The board of county canvassers fin ished their labor of counting the votes at the recent election at 5 p. m., but the on and In result of the count is not obtainable^ to night, and probably will not be made public before Monday. Nearly every precinctof the thirty-three in the county will b/B. tyavtosted, and the board this evening is hearing arguments of the le gal lights growing out of the contest. Messrs. Dixon and Kirkpatrick are at tending to the democratic side of the controversy, and Messrs. Knowles and Campbell appear for the republicans. The arguments were long and covered.all the legal points in the important eases, and were not finished tifi U o'clock, when a motion to adjourn till Monday was agreed Rv There is much excite ment in the city to-night over the counting. Crowds are collected about the streets, and threats are openly made in case the two precincts are thrown out. The throwing out of these two precincts would elect six or seven republican rep resentatives and several of the county officials. As the vote stands now, all the democrats heretofore announced as elected will have majorities, except Harry Hynes for assessor, the official vote show ing five majority for Holland, the repub lican candidate. At the order of Chair man Jack, the return of the tunnel dis trict, one of the contested precincts, has been sealed up." 000, The the ing. ley the of the of the The Four New States, Philadelphia Press: President Har rison will soon issue a proclamation, de daring the formal admission of Wash ington, Montana and the two Dakotas to the union of states. They are giant children, these baby states. They are giants in territory, they are advanced to ward maturity in development, social and industrial, and their population is growing with startling rapidity. It is hard for the eastern mind, unaccus tomed to the vast distances of the far northwest, to grasp their bigness. The four new states all make a licit extend ing southward from the British Ameri can boundary, interrupted only by the narrow pan-handle projection of Idaho, "hich separates Mon tan a from Washing ton. This belt stretches eastward from the Pacific ocean to Minnesota. There is only one way to realize what this bnre statement means. Take a map of the United States; fold it so that Portland, Me., will fall upon Portland, Oregon. d 'h (i middle crease thus made will cut through Minnesota just a little east of its western boundary, and just a little east of Fargo, Dakota, soon to be Fargo, North Dakota. East of the crease stretches the belt of old states, reaching 2,005 miles to the Atlantic. Westward stretches the belt of new states, cover ing 2.U00 miles to the Pacific. Keep tho map still before you, and taking a lead pencil place its point on the British line and grasp the pencil be tween thumb and forefinger where it crosses the southern border of Montana. "" ,, , ... , 4 he distance thus measured will be . . fair av rerage of the width of the belt of new states, for while Montana is wider, north to south, than Washington, it is narrower than the two Dakotas. Now move the pencil sidewise and eastward keeping the point always on the north era border of the United States. The part of the pencil between the point and the place grasped by the finger and thumb will cover all Minnesota, the northern third of Iowa, all Wisconsin and Michigan, the eastern two-thirds of Ohio, part of Kentucky, all of West Vir ginia, Pennsylvania, New York and the six New England states. Fixing .Jur» is in tin: Cronin Cano. A Chicago dispatch of tlie 12th says: Judge Horton has issued a venire for a special grand jury, to investigate the at tempts at jury fixing in connection with the Cronin trial, and the jurors sum moned are now assembling in the court room. Ex-Mavor Roche is among the grand jurymen and will be foreman of that body. Al Hankins and Mark Solo mon, criminal bailiffs, are under arrest ... . «barged with an attempt to pack the jury. The first wuopicion of the fact was the failure of the men to report for duty „ • t,. „ -, ■_____ .,, , this morning, then it w as learned they T J were m Zitate s Attorney Longneckor's office yesterday and had not been seen since. rr i • , -, . . I heir absence is due to the fact that they were taken to a North side hotel by several detectives and have been kept there under close surveillance. Two of attorney in order to be the men have been discovered in an at tempt to corrupt the veniremen sum moned to Judge McConnell's court and instruct those favorable to the prisoners how to answer questions to the state retained as jurors. The bailiffs in clwt ody have not been at any time engaged any time engaged in summoning jurors for the trial, and it was not known that they had any connection with the defense. Neither one is an Irishman,, but that they have been active as agents is almost certain. The special grand jury, after being in session a short time, summoned seven witnesses and among tho seven were two venire men who had been possible Cro nin jurors though not yet examined in court. It is reported that these two men wero approached among others by the two bailiffs now under arrest. The latter have been doing duty as guards to Kunzo and Sullivan. The Cronin sus pects have been sitting directly behind, the prisoners every day in the court, since the beginning of the trial. Til*; TtriMiklyii Tnliürn <clii Ihtnmr. The famous Brooklyn tabernacle, of which Rev. De Wat Tali nage is pastor, has been for the second time in its his tory totally destroyed by fire. At 2:15 o'elaok Sunday morning a policeman ^discovered flames issuing from tho small () j aav j n olmn g property. Many of the occu pants of neighboring dwellings were al windows over the main entrance and sent in an alarm. Soon after the fire men arrived it became evident that the edifice was doomed. It burned like u tinder box, and tho firemen, despairing it, directed their efforts to ad ready awake and the police proceeded to awaken those who were still sleeping. Two buildings on the east side and one on the wesQside were destroyed, anti a number of buildings across the street from the tabernacle wero badly dam aged. The residents of tho neighbor hood who were awakened rushed, ont, and an enormous crowd viewed the fire.. In about an hour the tabernacle was a. Onmple-te wreck. The loss on the church,, including organ and furniture, is 8150, 000, covered by insurance. The loss on adjoining buildings is perhaps 810,000» The origin of the tire is a mystery, but the theory is that during the thunder storm last night lightning entered on electric wires and sot fire to the build ing. __ _______ The wire nail has now been long enough in the market to demonstrate some ol its defects, says the Ohio Val ley Manufacturer. It is found by ex perience that the head, which is flat, rusts off after about two years' expos ure, thus rendering it entirely unfit for shingling or any other work that re quires that the nail shall lie exposed to the weather. This serious fault, to gether with the inferior holding power of the wire nail rotnpared with the cut nail, which has been demonstrated by the government tests, make it an object of suspicion, and will materially limit the list of good traits that the mann faclurers claim for it.
