While Mr. and Mrs. McMabon were at supper, 19S .worm Illinois street, last eve ning, some sly tbief entered their room and possessed himself of enough jewelry to set up a abop witn. Among omer articles; taken were a gold watch valued at f 150, a costly necklace, one set of coral jewelry. one pair of bracelets, one set ot b 11 ear rings, two sets of lewelrv complete, ana nve finger rlnzs. Mrs. McMahon was wear ing a couple and thus of very valuable ring, they were saved. The lady was put in tbe afternoon, and tbe presumption is that the thief saw some of tbe jewelry, and coveting the same, watched where she went and awaited bis opportu nity. Tbe missing articles are worth $400 or 500 in tbe aggregate, and were particu larly prized because they were presents. some ot them from Mrs. McMahou's mother. Tbe watch was marked on tbe inside of tbe case, "Iydla Sexton," the maiden name ot Mrs. McMabon, wbo is a daughter of Lieutenant Governor Sexton, ofKushville. Mr. McMahon is the secre tary of tbe Franklin .Lifo Insurance Com pany, IN CONTEMPT AT HOME. COLUMBUS KDITOR CALLS TJPOJf JUDOK HSSTEB TO XXPLAHf OR BTKP DOW5 AMD our. Tbe Columbus Democrat of last week ays: The right to criticise their omcers la one beld sacred by the people and the press, and when criticisms or strictures upon acts of office; s which are calculato J to bring dis repute upon any department ot gov ernment, and thus weaken its functions and powers, are offered in a proper spirit, they can do but good, and such criticisms or strictures can not be set down as contempt of lawlnl authority. AH laws depend for their enforcement on the affirmative sentiment of tbe people, and so too do all courts depend for their useful ntm upon and make themselves an engine tor good only wben they receive tbe respect and confidence of the people. This they can do only by tbe purity and integrity and ability of blra tbat is tbe court. Some one has said that tbe peo pie are always right. Without accepting this ai entirely and invariably correct, we do Deiteve tbat when a whole community entertain similar views upon the act of any officer la their midst, tbat of ficer, be he judge ot a court or tbe supervisor of a read district, can not well afford to run counter to tbem. In doing bo be brines hlrxself Into contempt more surely than could be done by tbe adverse criticisms of the press or of individuals. The people stand in awe of and revere the chaste blind goddsts, wbo bold aloft tbe eveniv bal anced scales, but wben they are asked to bow down in reverence to a strumpet who may bave for the once enwrapped her sensuous form in tbe pure white robes, they imply but firmly decline to bend tbe knee. If tbat be contempt it la certainly well founded contempt; just aucb contempt aa lust such a state ol affairs will call forth as long as there is in the hearts of the people a reverence for tbe law, a respect ror the courts, and a love of purity. "Thieves for their robbery have authority When Judges steal themselves," and so, too, tbe people bare authority for withholding their respect from an instru ment of tbe law that has himself but lightly regarded tbe law. In tbe appointment of At w. 1'ratner to sit as ludge In tbe Bar tbolomew Circuit Court we believe Judge uescer commuted a grave error an error that, unless satisfactorily explained to the people ot bis circuit, will seriously afiect his future labors on tbe bencb. Judge Hester baa ably filled tbe position of judge, and to the general satisfaction ot the public, but he can not wun impunity aeiy nubile opinion, and if be desires to regain the esteem of hnnd dredä, if not thousand?, of good men in this county ne must explain away tbis and avoid a like error in the future. He owes it to blms9lt and to tbe people who elevated him to the responsible and honorable post uon be holds, to do so. If he will not, but jusiines himself in tbe appointment, thus defying the outrsged public opinion of tbls county, theo the most entertaining docu ment he could indite would bs his resigna uon. we last wees withheld remarks on this fubjecr, partly in hör. tbat Judge Hester would give a satisfactory solution of bis act, but as be doesn't seem to regard it as a very pressing duty, it becomes us as a public journalist to reflect tbe opinions and feeling of our people, that he may not re main in ignorance or the position in which he stands, and we aure him we have drawn tbe picture mildly. Hymns are tbe life, sentiment, the creed even of religion. Once get a thing sung and who can measure the orbit? Song bus, in all times, been tbe great aeent lor atlrring and moving the human heart; it has a power In tbis regard pofS'ssed oy nothing iBln lift; tbe peopled to-day think more ol tto aiuging in churches than of tbe preaciiing ike byran takes possession of the human mind like a pleasant autumn day or a waman'a love.

Oelrichs A Co., agents of the North German Lloyds In thla city, have received the fol lowing dispatch from the company's office In Bremen: "A great explosion has occurred at Bremen llaven of a ease of dynamite on the quay belonging to a passenger baggaie. Many lives were IokU The steamer Mosel is slightly damaged, bat we expect to nail her to-morrow." Bremen, December 11. The Nord Deutsche I Joy da have received the following telegram from Bremen Haven : " After the steamer Mosel had embarked her passengers for New York to day in tbe outer port, tbe boiler of the tag Him aon lylDK opposite eiploded, k Hing fifty per sons and wounding many. The Mosel was so badly oamaged that she cannot Rail to-day. The Mosel was to have taken t he passengers of the wrecked steamer Deutschland of the same line." London, Dec, 11, 4 p. m. It Is not yet known whether the killed and wounded were passen gers by the steamer Mosel. The disaster was not caused by the explosion of the boiler of the steam tug but by an explosion on tbe wharf. Bremen, Dec H It is now certain that the explosion was a case of dynamite belonging to the personal b&gj&ge of a patsenger. But few details bave been received- It la presumed that the ac'nal passeug-is . uttered little, hut that tbe fu'altties were chiefly among l hohe accompanying the passengers. FURTH EH FACTS. New York, Dec. 11. Oelrichs A Co., genta of the North Uermpu Lloyd's Line, to which tbe steamship Mo el be'ongg, doubt the truth of the report that those klllel by tbe explosion at Breruen Haven were passen gers. There may bave be n workmen on tbe quay oralarg numbcrof friends of passengerswboat to sail on the Mosel alt Id K to see tbera off. In tbat case no names of the dead w)l be sen to the office in this c y. Two steamboats are used by the North Oermnu Uody'a Lane at Bremen Haven, 'ibe Lloyd, for pas seugars, and ibe bimsou, for lu.KSge. if any of the passengers were Injured, they are apposed to have been on the to which waa to convey them frcm the quay at Bremen harbor to the steamer. A quay Is set apart exc'usiviy for sa-fceneera' laraare. and it at) near" hat t he caaea of dynamite were about to be shipped as 1 luggage. The passengers of the Deutschland who were rescued could sot bave been among those who were injured, aa they were not taken to Bremen. Tbe consul had telegraphed that they won d take tbe Mosel when she stopped at Southampton, and abonld the Mosel sail to-morrow - they will be called for on Tuesday next. The company does not allow tbe shipment of explosive or danrerous materials of any kind en its vessels. Ho carefnl is it In th a respect tbat nothing but llnae! oil la permitted to be used In tbe lamps for illumi nating the saloons of the steamers. A special dispatch from Bremen aaya that the vessel was at tne pier taking on board passengers and their baggage. The pier waacrowded, aa la nsoal, by passen gers, porters and stevedores assisting la the departure of the vessel. Suddenly the ex plosion occurred, scattering deU and terror on all aides. Tbe first reports staled tsatltwasa team tug that had exploded, bnt now it appears that in the luggage of one of the passengers was a package of dynamite. The baggage by acci dent dropped and tne concussion eAused the ex plosion. The loss of life will not fee very great. Many were terribly injured. Tbe greatest ex citement prevails and assistance hasbeea sent to tbe asene of tbe disaster. The Mosel waa only slightly injured. TWOOPTHI HOSGL'S PASSENGERS KILLED. Bbebten, Dec. 11. Only two of the passengers by the Mosel were killed. The steamer suffered no particular damage on account of her great distance from tbe explosion. Tbe Bowdoin College Orient elves an amusing reminiscence of Henry W. Long fellow, the poet. Wben he waa a professor at tbat college he was seriously annoyed during a very poor recitation in Freneb. At last a student was called upon wbo had evidently made little or nav preparation, and was prompted by his classmates very audibly. The professor gave no heed to the prompting, but let tbe student blunder through his paragraph, aud, wben tbe young man was seated, quietly said : "Your recitaiiou reminds me ot the Spanish the ater, where the prompter performs a more important part than the actor.'

It Is not only on account of skill born of knowledge, and cultivated by a large and constant experience which gives them almost an intuitive perception of the location and nature of the disease, but a!so by their care ful painstaking in examination, which enables them to give an opinion ef no little value, and oae on which their patients can rely. Bat es pecially commendatory la their candid dealing The people are beglnnlog to find oat tha t heee physiclacs are not afraid of telling incurable caaej the truth, and that wben they say 'we can help you,' they mean Just what they say. In fact, it la more common for patients under their care to realize more than the promised benefit, than otherwise. By their system of advance payments tbey are at liberty to devote them selves entirely to their professional duties; con sequently, one patient does not have to pay for tbe collection of another's acoouct, nor for the losses entailed by poor bills. They make no charge for preliminary examination. Let all who are af&lcted give them a call." Sun. Another Soul Made Happy.
