Is the most ancient and most general of all
diseases. Scarcely a family is entirely free
from it, while thousands everywhere are its
suffering slaves. Hood's Sarsaparilla has had
remarkable success in curing every form of
scrofula. The most severe and painful run
ning sores, swellings in the neck, or goitre,
humor in the eyes, causing partial or total
blindness, have yielded to the powerful effects
of this medicine. It thoroughly removes
every trace of impurity from the blood and
builds up the weakened system.
The Worst Type.
"My son was afflicted with the worst type
of scrofula, and on the recommendation of my
Druggist I gave him Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Today he is sound and well, notwithstanding
it was said there was not enougli medicine In
Illinois to effect a cure." J. Christian,
Illiopolis, 111,
What is Scrofula
It is that impurity 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
developes uleers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness ; which is the 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 all diseases or affections,
for very few persons aro entirely free from it.
How can it be cured 7 By taking Hood's Sarsa
parilla, which, by the cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all affections of the blood
Hood's Sarsaparilla is unequalled, and some of the
cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrof lia in any of its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial.

In the trial of James A. Miller, alias
James Muldoon, for smuggling China
men into this oountiy, in progress be
fore District Judge Cox at Utica, New
York, Attorney De Angelis, who was as
«igned to defend the prisoner, raised an
interesting point. The Chinamen came
to this country by a row-boat across the
Niagara river. The statute provides
that it is a misdemeanor to aid or abet
any Chinese person to enter the United
States by land or to aid or abet any such
to land from a vessel. De Angeles ar
gued, and the government admitted that
a row-boat was not a vessel within the
meaning of the statute. De Angeles ar
gued that coming by boat could not be
construed to mean coming by land. The
effect at thie construction of the statute
would enable Chinamen to come to this
country by row-boats. The court held
for the present he would hold the stat
ute broad enough to cover coming to
this country by what ever means, but
promised to give the question further
consideration and change his ruling if
An Albuquerque, N. M. dispatch says:
A great deal of distress is reported
among cattle, sheep and other live 6tock
in this territory. Representative Frank
Hubble has just returned from his
ranches near Zunie and Salt Lake, in
Socorro county. He tells a distressing
story about the condition of the sheep.
He lost in the last three months over
30,000 head from starving and freezing.
He also reports that the loss is general
among all heavy sheep owners. The
weather has been cold and the ground
covered with snow and sheep cannot get
anything to eat. Such weather as that
of the last two months has never been
experienced before.
In a letter to the editor of the Wayne
News by Capt. Anse Hatfield, better
known as "Devil Anse," he says that a
general amnesty has been declared in
the Hatfield-McCoy fued; the war spirit
in him has abated and he rejoices in the
prospect of peace. The letter will serve
to quell all disturbances so far as the
Hatfield side is concerned, and it is
thought that a like letter has been pub
lished in Kentucky. This state of af
fairs is the result of the marriage of one
of the Hatfields to Miss McCoy and the
truce and peace congress held shortly
after. This fued has been in existence
since 1873 and there have been no less
than 150 deaths among the participants.
A letter dated Honolulu, March 12,
says: The new commercial treaty be

the queen and her cabinet. The new
treaty permits a full and free inter
change of all products, natural aud
manufactured, of the two countries. It
is not known what action will be taken
by Hawaii, but it is stated that the in
fluence of English friends of the Haw
aiian queen and the resident British di
plomats will prevent her from accepting
it in its present form. It is almost con
ceded that she will turn to Canada and
Australia for an arrangement similar to
the treaty heretofore existing between
Hawaii and the United States.
A Phillipsburg special of the 19th
says: John Price was married tonight
to Miss Annie McCormack, by Judge
Connolly. Mr. Price is the man who has
achieved a world wide reputation from
the fact that he sheds his skin, finger
nails, toenails and all, once a year regu
larly. His is a very peculiar case and
has puzzled the best physicians of the
United States. Mr. Price was in Phila
delphia, New York, Chicago and other
large cities last year and was examined
by many prominent physicians, but all
of them failed to find any cause for it, as
he is in every other way in perfect
health. He was offered large sums by
managers of museums and others, but
he is a hardworking man and refused.
He and his bride will probably shortly
go to Europe, where he will be examined
by the medical talent of the old world.
Timothy Ilealy, M. P., when leaving
the court room at Cork Monday, at the
conclusion of a trial in which he is in
terested, was soon surrounded by a
howling mob, who followed him along
the streets and made a number of at
tempts to assault him. The crowd fin
ally became so violent that Healy, to es
cape his tormentors, was compelled to
beat a retreat ana take refuge in a dress
ing room in th© Victoria hotel. This
proved only a temporary place of safety,
for before Healy could recover from the
effects of the mob's rough usage, a man
suddenly rushed into the room, turned
out the light and then struck Healy a
powerful blow in the face, smashing his
eye-glass into pieces. When assistance
arrived and the room was lighted Healy
was found to have been badly injured,
as he had received numerous cuts from
t he broken pieces of his eye-glass and
blood was pouring down his face in
streams. He was removed to a room
and a physician summoned. Three doc
tors have made an examination of the
wounds in his eyes and express fears
that his injuries may result in the loss
of his sight.

resigned the following April to enter
the confederate service, in which, as
major general of volunteers, he assisted

service throughout the war is well
known. After the war he became suc

Editor Enterprise: In the Enter
prise of March 14th I notice a paragraph
taken from the Anaconda Standard in
which its Washington correspondent
gives a very fair statement of the stand

congress. It was indeed an unpopular
bill, tacked as a rider to a meritorious
one, defining the boundary of the Park
enlarging its territory and creating a
civil government for its protection and
the preservation of life and property.
In justice to Judge Payson, chairman

committee he favored the segregation
of the land north of the Yellowstone
river, for the purjiose of giving free ac
cess to any railroad. This was entirely
consistant with the judge's record as an
opponent of railroad monopolies and
special privileges. But, as he informed
me, when at the second meeting of his
committee, he found the superintendent
of the Park, Capt. Boutelle, strongly
recommending the passage of the bill,
with its Montana Mineral railway rider,
he withdrew his opposition and signed
the report with the majority of his com
Judge Payson never called this bill up
on any day set for his committee, but on
September 29th, the day before the close
of the first session of the 51st congress,
Hon. Thos. R. Stockdale of Mississippi
asked unanimous consent to put upon
its final passage S. bill 491. Anderson
of Kansas offered to disjiense with the
reading of the bill, provided that section
of it was read which related to the
building of a railroad in the Park.
When it was found that such a section
had been injected into the bill, it was
promptly negatived by Anderson,
Adams, Dunnell, Holman, Vaux and
Candler of Mass., all of whom objected
to this attempt to run an omnibus bill
through the house in hot haste, at the
close of a session.
At the second session, the Montana
Mineral railway bill would have fared
worse, for many of the members of the
lands committee had become disgusted
with it and were in active opposition to
If the people of Livingston still hope
to see Cinnabar and Cooke connected by
rail I would advise them to consider the
proposition contained in the following
paragraph of mine published in the
Enterprise of 1888:
"While most earnestly opposing any
attempt to cut from the Park that por
tion of Montana upon which the govern
ment has expended large sums of money
as it has up the Gardiner canyon be
tween Gardiner City and Mammoth Hot
Springs, there can be no valid objection
to making the northwestern boundary
of the Park follow Soda Butte creek to
the east fork of the Yellowstone river,
thence down to where the Yellowstone
river forms a junction with the Gardiner
river. There are good reasons why this
should become the boundary line. It
would interfere with no established Park
road. It would cut off nothing of in
terest to the Park, but would give Cooke
City an opportunity to construct a rail
road up the course of these streams by
which it could send its valuable ores out
and import coke and mining supplies.
It would be a simple act of justice to
render every facility for the develop
ment of this rich mining region."
These were my views in 1888, they are
my views today.
It will be much more difficult to clear
the way for a railroad to Cooko City in
the 52nd congress than it was in the 51st.
The doubtful methods, to me a mild
term, by which the Montana Mineral
railway attempted to secure its charter
has raised an opposition in congress that
will be hard to overcome. Many of
them say, as Vaux said to me, "I am op
posed to cutting off any part of this
great park to accommodate a railroad.
It would be a bad precedent; clip one .
corner off to suit this railroad and soon
another railroad company will ask us to
clip it again to accommodate them."
This and similar views, in opposition
to cutting off or chartering a railroad
through the Park are entertained by
many congressmen; it will therefore
need unity of action to carry this meas
ure through botlf houses of congress.
On March 23rd, notwithstanding tho
deep snow still overlying the terraces,
Ed Wilson, the famous Park scout, gal
lantly undertook to break track, becom
ing guide, philosopher and interpreter
to Mrs. Charlie Stuart and Mrs. H. B.
Henderson. This party has the honor
of being the first to ascend Terrace
mountain in 1891. They saw the Nar
rowguage terrace; climbed the Orange;
visited Bath lake; drank at the mineral
springs; peeped into Stygian cave and
into the Stalactic cave, the mouth of
which was barred with ice; discovered a
baby geyser which the ladies declared
was a beauty, and forthwith there was a
christening, and the new darling was
named the Surprise. The trained eye
of the guide discovered and pointed out
the tracks and signs where a band of elk
had recently passed by the Devil's
Kitchen. But the most beautiful of all
the beautiful things they saw was Roth
terrace on the Bethesda plateau. This
terrace had been dried up for several
years and had lost all of its beauty.
Now there were two rythmic waves of
boiling water flowing over its terraces.
It was a painted poem in which all the
colors in the rainbow struggled for su
premacy. Mr. Wilson ventures the
opinion that when the white curtain of
winter is lifted the Roth terrace will
stand forth the crowning glory and
queen of the terraces, filling the place
formerly held by the Minerva terrace
and Cleopatra's Bowl, both of which are
now pallid and grey. But the novelty
of the day, in Darwinian praseology,
might be termed the "descent of woman."
From the Diana terraces to the base of
the giant's thumb, the snow was so soft
and deep that the ladies and their guide
frequently vanished out of sight. By
superhuman efforts the guide fished
them several times to the surface. At
last out of pity for the gallant Wilson,
the taller of the two ladies gathered her
self together and sailed down the em
bankment, feet first like a Scandinavian
snow shoe. The other, to be original,
choose a horizontal position and move
ingbyherown momentum and that of
the mountain landed safely at the foot
of Liberty Cap, when she arose and
bowed gracefully to the sphinx. This
original "descent of women," from the
Dina to the Hymen terraces was the
closing scene of this first day among the
terraces. G. U- Henderson.
Fatal Shooting At Billing*.
A quarrel between James Rome and
John Golden, better known as Arkan
saw John, resulted in a shooting scrape
in which Rome received a probably fatal
wound. Both men occupied a cabin in
the third ward of Billings, where they
did their own cooking. A dispute arose
between them over a grocery bill of $0,
and Rome, who is said to have been con
siderably under the influence of liquor,
used language exceedingly offensive
to Arkansaw. The latter left the cabin,
armed himself with a 44-calibre revolver
and returning demanded that Rome re
tract what he had said. This he refused
to do, applying offensive epithets to
Arkansaw, who deliberately drew the
revolver and shot Rome, the bullet en
tering the abdomen, where it lodged.
Immediately after the shooting Arkan
saw John skipped out, and has not yet
been apprehended, although officers at
once started upon his trail and sent a
description to all the surrounding tele
graph stations. Rome was still alive at
last accounts, but no hope is entertained
of his recovery.
