MINERAL POINT, - WISCONSIN. mmrnmmmmmmmmmmmm - ■ Tiller, the confidential clerk of the Pacific Express Company, at St. Louis, who I’ecently decamped from that city wit) some SIOO,OOO in money packages, has been caught at Milwau kee, and most of the nioaey has bee* recove red, One hundred and eighty inmates of the Soldiers’ home at Togus, near Augusta, Me., were taken ill one night last week, and the physicians had a lively time of it. It is supposed to have resulted from some unwhole some food that had been eaten. All the cases yielded to treatment. AT Warner, N. it., where in a school district there were half a cen tury ago forty scholars, there is how but one person of school age. On a road in the town, two and a half miles long, where sixty years ago there were thirty homesteads, there is not found to day a single descendant of the families who occupied them. One Ilf the largest oleomargarine manufacturers in the country, a man who makes about 2,600,000 pounds of it every year, gives the following as his recipe: One hundred pounds of j oleomargarine, five-hundred pounds of neutralized lard, ten gallons of I be one oil, drawn into 800 or six him ; dred pounds of milk, and HO ounces of coloring matter, churned and worked. A SUIT is pending at Atlanta, Ga., which hinges on the question whether 1 a married woman can sue the city for personal injuries, or whether the ac tion must be brought through her hus band.

A’liand of t row Indians, under the leadership of am employe of the Crow agency, taking advantage of the ab sence of the owners, on March 2ad, burned down sevreal cabins near Bil lings, Montana, which had been erect ed on mining claims at the head of Stillwater creek. Thesemines are said | to be the famed Lost Cabin lead, and are of unquestionable value. The city council of Mexico is now arranging the programme for the great railway jubilee of May, sth, in honor of the completion of the road which connects the two great North American republics. The Mexicans consider the feat of going from the city of Mexico to Chihuahua and back in six days one of the most remarka ble on record. People all over the country are go mg crazy over the recent alleged fab ulously rich gold discoveries in the Northern Idaho, known a.s the Cower d’Alene mines. The theory has been advanced by knowing ones that the whole thing was a job of the rail way’s to stimulate travel. This theory is now confirmed, for the festive pas senger agent is at work. One of his kind is now doing Illinois, lowa and Wisconsin, ami is out with beautiful descriptive pamphlets containing views of the new diggings and dia grams of the locality and routes. They are alluringly written, and spe ciously worded to capture the greedy and excite the imagination of the ad venturer. The man with S3OO or so in lus pocket, and looking for employ ment, is just the man the artful pas senger agent wants to reach with his gorgeous “folder.” Here are some specimens of the passenger drummer's art: “The gold produced by the CuHir d’Alene placers is what is known among miners as heavy, shot-gold, and largo nuggets of from SSO to S3OO each have been found, showing the nuggets to have been washed a long distance and indicating a very large deposit.” To those who may lack money other than enough to pay their fare this enticement is held out: “No machinery or capital required. These placers will yield their riches to any one who has a pick, pan, and shovel, and the muscles to use them. In this camp already seventy miles of gulches have been prospected, giving promise of rich returns.” The Monte Cristo of the ex Villard high way,adds further in all the glory of red, blue, and gold printers’ ink that “a gold vein is located near Mi ners’ Cabin, on which comparatively' little development lias been made,and yet hardly a chunk can be picked up on the dump and broken which does not show free gold. This one assays S3B to $lO, out) per ton in gold.” It is ciuel in railway advertising agents to hold such a. mug pictures before the innocent and confiding. Once for all let it l -that the pla cer diggings of the Co- . d’Alem* are as yet wholly unexplored. They were discovered last fall, some gold was found, then the snow dame, covered everything, aud since that they Lave bee* a sealed book- TELEGRAPHIC. general notes.

Vanity Fair, Chicago. There is a famous gallery in Brus sels where the pictures are all painted by ne artist. He seemed tw delight in the most revolting exhibition of physical suffering, and scenes of car nage. There are diseased minds that find pleasvre in torture, and bliss in pain. This type of mind Weirtz pos sessed in an eminent degree. Many of his pictures are so fright fully disgusting that they are only to be seen through small apertures not one-half inch in diameter; in this war they are not thrust upon the view of those to whom such scenes produce the most painful sensations; the high order of the art never for a moment directing their minds from the terrific conception. It would be well if such surveillan could be exercised over some of the daily newspapers to pre vent their thrusting upon our atten tion,and familiarizing the youth of the I land with the most blood curdling de scriptions of crime. Since the daily paper has expanded in size from a “dinner napkin to a table cloth,” and i* served to us three ! times a day, it is difficult to fill these long columns with spicy reading mat- ; ter, hence this pandering to vitiated tastes that have first been created, and then crave that which repels, and at the same time attracts, producing the mingled sensations of shuddering and fascination. A French writer has said that down at the bottom of the J human heart there is an exultant feel-1 ing over the misfortunes or downfall of another, even though that other be our best friend. The affair has grown into a com mercial one of demand and supply. In order to meet it there is a most un wariftutable invasion of domestic privacy, and no home is too sacred to lie turned inside out, and no reputa | tion so irreproachable that it cannot; be tarnished when overlaid with such i plethora, of vituperation and falsities. I For the sake of those whose tastes are I not yet “starved small,” would it not i be well to have all these disgusting pictures apart by themselves and not | scatter through the paper? It would; then be optional with the reader whether they were committed to the ] flames or not.

So great was his agony in i after years, he became a helpless I cripple, and after trying numberless remedies, the baths of other countries and spending a fortune of $20,000, the disease seemed to assume a more viru lent type. Finally, he was persuaded to try St. Jacobs Oil, the great con ! queror of pain. It worked a miracle !of cure.

How he Came; to be Dis covered. Particulars and Incidents of the Affair. Prentice Tiller, who stole SIOO,OOO from the Pacific Express Cos , in St. Louis, on Washington’s Birthday was arrested iu Milwaukee last Thursday. The arrest was due to a discovery made by Charles J. Jetter. head sales -1 man forCarpeles, Schrarn& Cos., East i Water street trunk dealers. About 10 o’clock last Tuesday morning, a man j entered Carpeles, Schrarn & Co’s store ! and asked Mr. Jetter to show him a , stroug sole-leather trunk, one with the strongest lock possible. A trunk ; was purchased for $23, on which he i paid $lO. The man told Mr. Jetter that on the following day he would leave with him a valise to be packed i iu the trunk, which he wanted him to | ship by the American Express com | pany to C. 11. Pachen, Detroit, and to place on the shipping tag the words “will call,” and also requested that the trunk be marked J. W. Pachen, Cincinnati, Ohio. While Mr. Jetter was making the sale, and receiving the order as to the shipment, etc., the thought occurred to him a number of ! times, that there was something sus picious about his customer. About 4 j o'clock on Wednesday afternoon the i man reappeared at the store with a | valise, asked that it be put in his trunk, and said that he would return at ten minutes before 6 o’clock for the key of his trunk. Shortly afterward the valise was taken to the packing room on the second floor, when it was noticed that it was very heavy. On account of the suspicion which he had entertained towards his customer, and the great weight of the valise, Mr. Jetter ordered Win. Dooley, an em ploye, to get a key and open the satch el. This lie did in the presence of Mr. Jetter, and the latter examined the contents. WHAT THE SATCHEL. CONTAINED. On top, beneath some dirty cloth ing, two large packages were discover ed, besides several envelopes and au amount of jewelry. Mr. Jetter was dumbfounded, (ana ordered Dooley to call Mr. Carpeles. When the latter appeared on the second floor, he was told by Mr. .letter of liis discovery, when a further investigation was made. It was immediately seen that I the envelopes bore the seal of the I Pacific Express company-, and when they were opened and found to con-1 tain money, the thought occured to j Mr. Carpeles that he was handling j the money- stolen from the Pacific Ex- I press office at St. Louis, an account of which he had read in the newspapers, i When the discovery was made that the two large canvass p ickage# were filled with currency, it was decided to | notify the United States Express com pany. To Agent Parker, of the ex press company, Mr. Carpeles made known the discovery, and immediate ly Mr. Parker introduced a man, with whom he had been in consultation, as W. P. Hancock, a detective from St. Louis. Au agreement was made j that the three should go to the office of Attorney L. B. Schrarn, where a | consultation was held, and there it was decided that the three should go to Carpeles’ store, get the valise and contents, and deposit them in a safety vault; the Merchant’s Exchange being selected, the valise was taken to the bank, and, without further in vestigation of the contents, it was placed in the vault, in the name of Messrs. Carpeles, Parker and Han cock, an understanding being entered into with the bank officials that the valise should be delivered to the three, and only when they appeared at the bank together. After the de posit had been made the three gentle men visited Chief Wasou, and disclos ed to him what they hud discovered, and requested that behave a detective at the store at 5:50 o’clock, at which time the man who had left the vahse was to return for the key. Chief Wasou immediately ordered two de tectives to the store to await the re turn of the man. The latter failed to put in an appearance,, however, and at 6:15 o'clock the store was closed for the day. Early yesterday morn ing detectives were on watches in the vicinity of the store, and at 6:15 o'clock Mr. Carpeles opened the store, in expectation that the man might be in waiting to get the key- as soon as the store opened; but in this he was disappointed. THE arrest. However, shortly after 10 o'clock, the man entered the store, and asked Mr. Jetter for his key. Mr. Jetter-i told him that lie could have it in a moment. Mr. Carpeles, who had left the store, returned while Mr. Jetter pretended to be searching for the key. Noticing the man in the store, he beckoned to detective Mat thews, who a moment later entered the store. The detective, placing his hand on the fellow's shoulder, told ha wanted him, at the same time slip ping the hand-cuffs upon his wrists. The man was taken to the station by the detective, Mr. Carpeles accom panying them. Several persons who had seen the arre-t followed, and when the station was reached a crowd had assembled. For hours after the prisoner was looked up hundreds of persons, princi-! pally business men, visited the station to look at him, and it was not until j the prisoner left the s’aUon for the depot at. 3:30 o’clock, that the crowd cased to come and go. A number of persons followed me prisoner to the depot, where a large crowd had col , lecled to see him. The prisoner left! on the 4 ;15 Iraia for Chicago over the Northwestern road iu charge of De- i tective Thiel, of St. Louis, and Assist j ant Superintendent Shepard, of the | [ Pacific Express company, Tiller hav- j ing consented to return without a requisition from the govnor. The money, che:ks, etc., were sent by ex press, The prisoner will arrive in St. Louis to day. THE PRISONER INTERVIEWED. The digcuise selected by Tiller wf.S that of a tramp, and his appearance when he entered the station was no better than that of any genuine tramp, who might seek a lodging at the sta tion. On his head, drawn well down, he had a dirty cap, and around his neck he wore a piece of red flannel wound around several times,as though he was suffering with a severe sore throat or a severe cold. He had a calico shirt but no collar. He wore a very seedy overcoat, which to all ap pearances had Ween worn for several years, after being discarded by its or iginal owner. When his overcoat was lemoved, a shabby sack coat, could be seen, and under this was an other well-worn sack coat. His vest was of the cut which was in style 20 years ago, being cut very low. and having lapels. It was made of coarse striped corduroy. His trousers were brown, of Hoosier cut, and were not originally made for him as they hardly reached the top of his slices. He wore a heavy pair of woollen stockings,and a pair of cowhide laced shoes. When his cap was removed a face was revealed that would not he called good-looking. He is of light com plexion, with brown hair. His face is long and lean, aud is shaven clean, ami he has large ears. He is about 5 feet 10 inches in height, of slim build, and apparently of about 140 pounds weight. He is pale aud rather sickly looking. INVENTORY AND REWARD. The bank officers notified Messrs. Carpeles, Parker and Hancock that they would not be responsible for the valise, as the amount of the contents was not known. The valise was taken to the United States Express compa ny's office by the three gentleman, and the trunk found by detective Mc- Manus in Tiller’s room, was also re moved to the express office from po lice headquarters. In order to obtain the amount of the reward due for the recovery of the valise, it was necessary to obtain an inventory of its contents, and this was done at the express of fice. It required three hours to make the inventory. The counting was done by Messrs. Carpeles, Hancock and Parker, Louis B. Schram. the at torney, the inventory. Alexander Mitchell was present during part of the time that the inventory was made. A small table on which the count was made was covered with huge piles of bills, the principal denomina tions being one, five, ten and twenty dollar bills, there being very few SIOO bills. The result of the inventory was as follows: Currency, including the 13,290, found on Tiller’s person, $38,624; gold, silver and othercoin, $436 01; twmty-two gold and silver watch cases and movements, inven toried at $275; thirty-two pieces of jewelry, including diamonds, pi tis, studs, bracelets, etc., inventoried at $050; two pieces of bar gold, of the val ue of about SI,OOO The aggregate of the inventory is $40,035.01. WHY SO MUCH JEWELRY. Teller refused to disclose what his object was in purchasing so much jewelry, and it cannot he imagined unless that he intended it fora woman, who is said to be mixed up in the case. After he was locked up yesterday a postal card and letter from Chicago jewelry houses, addressed to Lewis Payton, were delivered to him. They referred to inquiries which had been made by him vith regard to the price of jewelry. One of ihe letters was from a house doing a wholesale busi ness only, and judging from this fact it may be that he had contemplated going into the jewelry business in some place as he said in a sort of jok ing manner, when asked what he had intended doing with the jewelry. THE REWARD. Chief Wason yesterday presented a claim for the ss,ooooffered for Teller's arrest, and also for 10 per cent, of the $3,390 found on Teller’s person when arrested. Mr. Carpeles made no claim, he saying that he desired to have a consultation with Chief Wason first, with regard to the reward, and he will probably do so this morning. Mr. Car peles said yesterday that he desired to see the question of the reward amica bly sealed, without recourse to law. He feels that to his house is due the capture and return of the money, and that their should be a fair settlement. The St. Louis express authorities re quested Mr. Carpeles logo to St. Louis, but he did not care to, believing that a settlement would be made here. All of the money was taken to St. Louis yesterday, also the trunk. The trunk was not inventoried, but was opened and found to contain a number of broken money-packages and the pack ages of checks. Two packages were also in the trunk which are believed to contain currency, which had not been disturbed by Teller. Should money be found in the trunk, Detec tive McManus will probably present a claim.
