MEDICAL Gl* It BE IrJe? Yea, but it IS true, and that ia the beauty of it, strange as It la. . It Is True that “Athlophoros” I cured the Rev. W. F. Corblt, of New Haven, of a terrible attack of lndamma- I | tory rheumatism, which had long tor -1 1 mented him and had reduced him In weight thirty-live pounds. I It Is True that the Rev. Dr. Den nen, of New Haven, who had been laid up for four or five months at a time with the severest Rheumatism, took “ Arano fhoros " and became a well man. It Is True that Mr. A. B. YT7 I Baker, of Chicago, whose head • I ■ D | I r~ was drawn over to his left I U u shoulder by Rheumatism, took I \ “Athlophoros, ’’and was cured by a bottle of It. It Is True that Mrs. Porter, of Crete, 111., who was so crippled with Rheumatism that she could not walk a step, took “ Athlophokos, ” aud has since been able to walk without pain. It Is True that hundreds of other well known people have received from “ ATHLomo ros " the most wonderful relief from their Neu ralgic and Rheumatic pains which had long baffled the most learned doctors. Even if so strange that at first you may hardly believe it, It IS true that “Athlophoros” will do for you just what It has done for others. If you cannot tret Athlophoboh of your druggist, we will eend it exprw* paid, on receipt of regular price—one dollar i«r bottle, we prefer that you buy It from your driunriet, but if be baan't It, do not us IK-reuaded to try aoiuethiug else, but order at once from ua aa directed. ATHLOPHOROS CO., 112 WALL ST . NEW YORK. Father, Mother, and Three Sisters Dead. Mr. David Clay pool, formerly Sergeant at-Arma of the New Jersey Senate, ana now Notary Public at Codarville, Cumberland Co., N. J., makes the following startling statement: “My father, mother, and three sisters all died with consumption, aud my lungswereso weak I raised blood. Nobody thought I could live. My work (ship smithing) was very straining on me with my weak constitution, and 1 was rapidly £oing to the grave. While in this condition 1 commenced using Mishler’a Ilerh Bitters, und it saved my life. Because it was so difficult to get it in this little place, and I had improved so much, I stopped taking it for a time, and the result is thut 1 have commenced going rapidly down hill again. Somehow, Mishler’s Herb Bitters gives appetite and strengthens and builds me up as nothing else does, and I must have a dozen bottles at once. Use this commu nication as you please, and if any one wants to he convinced of its truth, let them write me and I will make affidavit to it, for I owe my life to Mishler’s Herb Bitters.’* ► The secret of the almost invariable relief and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar rhoea, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and liver complaints, when Mishler’s Herb Bitters is used, is that it contains simple, harmless, and yet powerful ingredient!, that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver, and through them strengthens and invigor ates the whole system. Purely vegetable in its composition: prepared by a regular physician; a standard medicinal prepara tion; endorsed by physicians und drug gists. These are four strong iHiints in favor of Mishler’s Herb Bitters. Mishler’s Herb Bitters is sold by all druggists. Price $ 1.00 j»er large Little. 6 Little* for sb.oo.

It has been my fortune to travel through some of the states and territories within in the dominions of “Uncle Bam,” and I always go with my eyes open that I may observe and pro fit by comparison, and I am fully per suaded that, barring special reasons for a change of location, one State has but slight advantage over another when comparisons are justly made and intel ligently considered. The old adage of “letting well enough alone” sparkles with wisdom and glitters with gold. To leave a good home, dispose of a prof itable business, bid adeu to warm friends and start in any direction to find “some better place” is to personify folly. Every time you make such a move you face the necessity of again “starting in life,” must undergo many privations that you had outlived and outgrown in your old home, your new friends may be good aud true but can not be dearer than those you left, and while you may have escaped some un pleasant feature in country or climate, you are liable to meet with others quite as disagreeable and unprofitable. Of course, there may be special reasons to induce you to make a radical change, and when this is the case due deliber ation should be extended that no mis take be made. My own case is quite sufficient for example. I left lowa, one of the GRANDEST OF GREAT STATES, Hiul came to Southern California be cause our most excelleut family physi cian advised the change from a severe to a milder climate, with a world of regrets and many misgivings the task was undertaken and performed and, seemingly, with most satisfactory re sults, as iny wife and daughter have beeu greatly benefited by the change. They nave now been here about four months and have gained more than a dozen pounds and are very happy in anticipation of complete restoration to good health. lowa is a grand State and her great possibilities are yet unmeas ured, but ner winters are too long and cold for delicate constitutions that find the elixir of life in the glorious sun shine and balmy breezes that sweep along these shores and fan these moun tain brows. To enjoy life and be able to make the world better for our hav ing live<l in it, the first great essential is good health, without it we are un fitted for everything, with it we may accomplish much. Many thousands have come to Southern California just as my little family did, trembling BETWEEN HOl'E AND FEAR, and a very large majority of them re main dwellers in contentment and royal good health. But it is not to be supposed for a moment that we meet with no disadvantages. Above us the sky is clear and bright, the ocean’s breeze and the mountain’s air are sweet, pure and invigorating and all around us is a wonderous wealth of fruit and ttowers, but— well it has not rained a drop since the last week in April, nearly six mouths, and you ought to conclude that it is dusty. Still you would be surprised at tinding the in cun vemence arising therefrom no great er than it is. Again water is a scarce and precious article. From its presence or absence all values are measured. Plenty of water will easily add 9100 an acre to a ranch, and if you are unable to secure a supply your land Is practi cally without value. 1 regard the long drouth and llie scarcity or water the greali'st objections to this country, and these are being gradually overcome. The mountains are being tunneled in many places, aud water is almost uni versal fy found. But little dittleulty is experienced here on this account, and while some of the water used in this district is brought four or live miles, many places in the Stale pipe it -5 and 40 miles The additional supply of water means more tree and vine plant ing more vegetation, aud this lias a tendency to shorteu the dry season that comes with every year. Last winter more rain fell than had been recorded in any previous season in the history of the state. Bain sometimes falls In October, generally in November aud certainly in Deeemtau . and it usually continues showery until Aprtl.

FARM NOTKB. -Aii ocean steamer lately took out to New Zealand a consignment of “bumblebees.” At present clover does not “seed” in that country, because there are no bumblebees to fertilize the flowers. The importer hopes that the bumblebees will save him 85,000 a year in clover seed. —lt is not the style of farming which is the foundation of success, but the care, the brain power combined with industry which tells. Nor can all these combined make a success if the farmer runs recklessly aud carelessly in debt. The first foundation of success is to get out and keep out of debt. —The rotation of crops adopted by Prof. Roberts, of Cornell university farm, is clover, corn, oats, wheat and clover. In seeding down, two to four quarts of timothy seed are sown about ten days after the wheat in autumn, and from four to six quarts of clover in the following spring. With this ro tation he has obtained forty-seven bushels per acre of wheat, seventy-three bushels of oats, and eighty bushels of corn. Of 120 acres specially devoted to the farm, laud not originally fertile has been made to yield about 86,000 an nually in grass products. —The bread of the Pilgrim Fathers is said to have been prepared according to the following mathematical formula: “Take a few handfuls of flour, add some milk and a little more water, put in some salt, a little sugar, a chunk of butter and a quantity of yeast. Let it stand, knead it, let it rise and hake till done.” Ry this recipe the New Eng land housewives are reported to have made bread, until the whole population, native and foreign, rose up in indigna tion and deserted the staff of life lor pie. —Wm. Franklin, Esq., Cass county, lowa, seeing the question of permanent pasture discussed in Prairie Farmer, gives his method: “1 fenced iu a past ure of wild grass when 1 came to lowa, and not wishing to lose the use of it the first year, l sowed timothy and blue grass on the sod, in the latter part of August. I then kept my cattle ou it. 1 had some tame grass the next year, and the second year it was well set with timothy and blue grass. It has been good for ten years -better than any 1 have made on plowed land. It is part low bottom and part low hill land. Slough grass formerly grew on the bot tom. “8a«-dut” Swindler*. Tom David'* Gang. The death of Thomas Davis, “Prince of counterfeit money frauds, or saw dust swindlers, ’’ calls public attention afresh to a class of swindlers that ex ists in the country, to an extent of which few have any conception. For years this man Davis, assisted by a gang of lazy, shiftless, unprincipled scoundrels, has preyed upon the com munity, and strewn temptation in the path of unfortunate men. The scheme is, Hist to secure from the mercantile agencies and newspa|»ers, the names o? merchants and others who have failed in business; then a letter is sent to them, partly of condolence, and partly offering to present them a busi ness opportunity winreby large sums of luouey can be readily made. This is the first step of the “sawdust'' swin ler, to induce correspondence from persons out of town. Should this let ter of the swindler meet with a re sponse, the next tiling iu order is, a letter giviug details In rafaraucs i<> the swiudlei's business, containing a pass-word, and a card of some hotel, with instructions to come and put up at this hotel, and wail theie niilil such time as the parly writing shall meet him, and in order to insure permanent success, samples of gmni money are seitt iu the letter, The intended victim .oiuee i" New V oi lt, Is taken to tlia swiudlei's den, where good money is counted out in his presence, at the rate of ten thnuauud dollars for live hum died dullsis.

A SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF THE DEAD COMMANDER, Delivered Before a Beaten Audience at the City’s Services In Memory of the Great Dead —Gen. Grant’s Career Eloquently Set Forth. Boston, Oct 543. —Beneath the kindly rays of a mellow sun thousands of Boston* inns thronged Thursday afternoon to the Grant memorial exercises at Tremont tem ple under the auspices of the city govern ment At 2 o’clock prayer was offered by the Rev. B. F. Hamlin, and an ode by Julia Wal'd Howe was sung by the choir. A poem written by Louise Imogens Guiney was read by Professor Moses T. Brown of Tuft’s college. The motette, “Gone Through the Shadows,” was rendered by a choir of women’s voices. Mayor O’Brien, at this point in » brief speech, presented the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher as the eulogist of the day. Mr. Beecher was received with gen erous apjilause and spoke as follows: Anotuer uauie is added the roll of those whom the world will not willingly let die. A few yea n since storm-laden clouds filled his heaven, and obloquy, slander and bitter lies rained down upon him. The clouds are all blown away; under a serene sky he laid down his life and the nation wept. The path to his tomb is worn by the feet of innumerable pilgrim-. The mildewed lip* of slander are silent, and even criticism hesitates lest some incautious word should mar the history of the modest, gentle, magnanimous warrior. The whole uatiou watched his passage through humili ation and misfortunes with unfeigned sym pathy; the whole world sighed when his life ended. At his burial the unsworded hands of those whom he had fought lifted bis bier and bore him to his tomb with love and revereuce. (.•rant made no claim to saiutship. He was a man of like passions and with a* marked limitations as other men. Nothing could be more distasteful to his honest, modest soul while liviug and nothiug mors unbecoming to hi, memory than lying exaggerations and fulsome flatteries. Men without faults are apt to be men without force. A round dia mond has no brilliancy. Lights and shadows hills and valleys, give beauty to tbe land scape. The faults of great and generous natures are often over ripe goodness or the shadows which their virtues cast. Three elements enter into the career of a great citizen, that which bis ancestry gives; that which opportunity gives; that which his will develops. Grant came from a sturdy New Eng land stock; New England derived it from Scotland; Scotland bred it at a time when covenanters and puritans were made —men of iron consciences hammered out upon the anvil of adversity. Prom New England the stream flowed to the Ohio where it enriched tbe soil till it brought forth abundant harvests of great men. When it was Grant’s lime to be born he came forth without celestial parents, and his youth had in it no prophecy of bis manhood. HU boyhood «v whole,oine, robust, with a vigorous frame. With a heart susceptible of tender love, he yet was not social. He was patient and per-istent lie loved horses ami could master them. That is a good sign. Grant had no art of oreating circum stance,; opportunity must seek him, or else he would ulod through life without disclo— mg tile gifts which God hid iu hint The gold in the bills can not disolose itself, it must be sought and dug. A sharp and wiry politician for some reason, of providence, perfoi mad a generous deed m sending young Grant to West Point He fitii hed hU course there distinguished as a skillful and bold rider, with an inclination to mathematics, but with little taste rur the theory and literature of war, but with stny pathy for its external aiid material develop ment*. lu boyhood and youth he wa* marked by simplicity and candor, veracity and silence. Alter leaving tbe academy he saw service tin Mexico and afterward in California, but without conspicuous remits. Then came a cloud period, a -ad life of irresolute vibration between self indulgence and aspiration. Through intemperance lie resigned from the army, and ai that time idle would have feared that his life would -mi in echp>e. It was later iu ht» life that (•rant do iroyed the euemy that "hitett. like a ser)>eiit and stiugeth like ait adder.” At length he struck at the root of the matter. Others agree not U> drink, which is good. Urant over came the wish to dunk,, which is belter. Hut the cloud bung over hi« reputation for many years and threatened his ascendeuoy when better days came. Of ail his victor ie, many and great, this was the greatest that he conquered himself. His will was stronger than hi* passituia He wa* a good •übaitern, a poor farmer, a worse tanner, a worthless trafficker. Without civil experience, without literary gifts, too dllfideut to be ambitious, too modest to pul himself forward, too honest to be a poli tician, he wa« of ail meu the least likely to attain emluency, and ahaolutely unfitted apparently for pie-oiutuenoe; yet God's provldeuce selected him.

He lui|ioaed no hu miliating conditions, spared the feelings of his antagonists, sent horns the di-bamled southern men with tow! ami with horses for working their orope, and when a revengeful spirit in tbe executive chair showed it sell end threatened the chief southern generals, Grant, with a holy indignation interpoied himself and compelled hie superior to re linquish his rash purpose.

Grant’s political career, saying that different qualities were required in a states man than in a soldier. “Washington was eminent in statesmanship, but tbeu he was not a great general, at any rate he had no opportunity to develop the fact. In the re adjustment of the political relations of the south, Grant wa< wise, generous and mag nanimous in his career.” He closed as follows: A man he was without vices, with an absolute hatred of lies and ineradicable love of truth, of perfect loyalty to friendship, neither envious of others nor selfish for himself, with a zeal for the public good, unfeigned. he has left to memory only such weaknesses as connect him with humanity aud such virtues as will rank him among heroes. For the hour sympathy roiled as a wave over our land. It closed the last furrow of ‘ war; it extinguished the last prejudice; it effaced the last vestige of hatred, and cursed be the hand that shall bring them back. Johnson and Buck ner on one side, Sherman and Sheridan upon the other of his bier, be has come to his tomb as a silent symbol that liberty had conlfuered slavery, patriotism rebellion, and peace war.

East Saginaw, Mich., Oct 30.-N|. frightful accident occurred here early Wednesday evening. F>re broke out on the tug C. C. McDonald, lying at the dock about 2>U feet south of Gene.ec avenue bridge, shortly before 7 o’clock, and a large number of persons rushed upon tbe bridge to witness the fire. The draw was open to let the fire tugs through, aud a moment later a portion of the foot walk oil the south side of the bridge, five feet wide and forty-five feet long, gave way with a crash, precipitating forty to sixty people into tbe swift current of the river, which is fifteen feet deep. The night was dark aud no lights near, while people struggling aud shouting iu the water amid the trokeu deb ris of the bridge made up a scene that baf fles description. As quickly as possible help was obtained, row-boats manned, boards and planks thrown out, and tbe work of picking up commenced. Only ocie grappling iron was on the bridge, but a supply sent down from tbe Tittabawas.se booms was put into use as soon as possible. The current is very strong, and many of those picked up had drifted some distance dowu stream. A number of those rescued were more ar less injured. The body of Sidney Fallon, a boy of 8 years, was recovered. So far as known there are two more boys missing and supposed to be drowued. WILL KILL THE TRUCK SYSTEM “Labor Scrip” Must P»y a Tax of IU Per Cent. COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. do. —Larkin Mc- Hugh, commissiouer of labor statistic*, has been studying and agitating the question of labor scrip, a commodity much abused iu the mining district* by oertam operators. The result of Mr. McHugh's investi gations is an opinion from Rev enue Collector Joseph & Miller, of Washington that “scrip”—that is & and 85-oent notes, payable in money, and uot in mercbaii ils -, aud ifpued by individuals and firms, is required under section 10 of the act of Fell. 8, 1875, (Comp, 1870 page 114) to pay a tax of 10 per centum on the amount of such notes used for circulation aud paid out by them. The communication instructs Collector Neuman to proceed immediately to learn the amount issued iu his district and proceed at ouoe to the oollectiou of the lawful tax. It is believed this decision souuds the death knell of the odious truck system in miniug and manufacturing dis tricts.

MAKING A RECORD AS COWARD OH Laying In Wait for Two Working Woman and Shooting Them Without Warning A Desperate Kuo for Liberty —Chicago’s Latest Tragedy. Chicaoo, Oct. 30. —Mrs. Ray Good* and Mias Lillian Walters were probably fatally shot Wednesday evening about 5-JO. by Asba J. Burnt*, as they were leaving R. O. Dan & Co.’s commercial agency office, where they are employed aa typo-writers. Mias Walters observed Burr us standing in front of the building as she camle oat and said to her fueter-sister, Mr-. Goode: “There’s Burr us.” Almost before tbs words were spoken the young fellow drew from his pocket a revolver and with steady aim tired at the nearest of the two— the elder sister. The girl ran forward to the : idewalk and dropped at the edge of the curbstone. Her sister jumped for ward to catch her, but as she did »> the fellow again tired with as deadly aim as before and the girl fell into the arm * of a bystander. Quickly shoving the revolver into his pocket, the murderer glanced at bs victims and ran across the street through the crowd whicn came together from all sides. A boy attempted to trip up the fleeing man, but he pushed through the crowd and ran down Li State -treat to Mali-on and along that street to Fifth avenue, followed by the men who had seen him shoot the girl* Chi Fifth avenue his pursuers gained on the man. and, seeing bis chances of escape were very few. he again drew tile weapon and point ing it at his pursuers said be would shoot if they did not let him alone. While the man was brandishing the re volver in the face cf the crowd Officer C. Crowley came up behind him and. knocking the weapon from his hand with a club, ar rested him. A patrol wagon was sent lor, but before it arrived the number »f excited peoie increased around the officer and his prisoner. Jeers and hoot* were followed by load cries of “ Hang him I lynch him!' 1 The patrol wagon ar rived opportunely, for only a leader was wanting to have changed the howling crowd into a revengeful mob, The man wa* hustled into tbe wagon and driven to the armory, where he was locked in the mur derer’s cell At the time the shots were fired tbe street was full of people. The unusual noise at tracted a large crowd, who quickly gath ered around tbe pros'rate forms of tbe two girls. Medical attendance was sent fur an 1 ambulance wagons were dispatched to the place Mrs. Ray Goode, who was The first one shot, and who had fallen to the sidewalk near the gutter, was believed to be dying, and wa- conveyed to the couuty hospital. Lillian Walter was car ried to L C. Bovsen s drug store, 310 Clara street, where she was attended by Dr. Brr don, who probed for the ballet with no suc cess. They were both taken to the hospital, where the physician'! -did what was possible for their comfort. The revolver used was a .48-calibre, aud the hail entered Mias Walter’s head at the right temple, about ou a line with the base of the eye. and apparently deflected back wart and downward. It is thought to be lying near the base of tbe skull Mrs. Goode was also shot in the right temple. Tbe ball entered in almost exactly the .amt) relative place as tbe one which wounded Miss Walters, but in this case it had an outwa-sl as well as a downward de flection. It was found very near tbe sur face of the left cheek, and was readily ex tracted Tnerw was profuse Weeding through the nose. There is very faint hope of the recovery of either and the doctor* are very cautious about say tug anything. Burra* was seen in jail, but will not be in terviewed regarding his crime. What tbe cause of the tragedy is -earns difficult to get at, but tbe immediate cause was the dis charge of Burru* Tuesday evening for using improper language with reference to the two women, which language was re ported to the mauager of the office (where Burras also was employed as dictator). burr us was requested t>> apologise or suffer discharge, and eh.ee the latter. The relations between the women aud Burru* were unfriendly from tue time they were employ el in this city by Duu & Co,, and for this there are two causes alleged. One is that Mrs. Goode and Miss Walters accused Burru* of stealing a gold pen, which he borrowed of one of them while they were employed in the St Paul office of Dun & Ou., and for that refused to -peak to them. The ether is that they are al leged to have written to Mr* Burru*. warn ing her that her hu.band was uni attorn kigniug the letter with a fictitious name. This letter made Burru* furious, so his wife say* and be declared <.t once that it was writteu by one of the women Both of the women ere hand— • me, Mrs, Good,- being a blonde and Mi*> Walter, a brunette. The former is separated from her husband. Tho-c who know them de clare tliey have first-class reputation, and are quiet aud lady like. They are both frotu El Paso, 111 a Mrs. Goode b about Jt< and her sister Ii Burru* i* from Janesvdk* Wi*. and is about 38. He is a quiet, gentlemanly ap pearing mail, and his friend, are a- torn ited at his murderous conduct. He has a wife amt one child, an infant three weeks old. Latah. A reporter «» Mia Burros Thurwda., She i, very much prostrated by the tragedy. Mbe taied that she could give no explanation of the shoot lug She knew of no re* .on why her husband shout 1 shoot the girls. She had uever received any anonymous letter* which she mistrusted name from Mrs. Goode or Miss Wait or-, and she positively as-eriod that she had never told any one that she had received any letter* of that character. The wounded girls were resting earner at the county Uo-pitai Thursday afteruwou. ami the physiciau* now think both have a fair chance to recover.
