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.
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.

Mr. Editor:— There is no State in
the Union so fortunate as to possess all
the advantages, and nor so unfortunate
as to be afflicted with all the disad
vantages to be met with in the land
dominated by the stars and stripes, and
it is well that such is the case, else some
f daces would be crowded and others
eft deserted. 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
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
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.

-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

the first year, l sowed timothy and blue

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

failed in business; then a letter is sent
to them, partly of condolence, and
partly offering to present them a busi

of luouey can be readily made. This
is the first step of the “sawdust'' swin

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

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

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.

With 1,000,000 meu for who** movements

dreadful man of blood was tender toward

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. There

The speaker went over the attempt of
Jobnaou to have I*e tried for treason aud
Grant’s resistance te each action.
He then briefiv sketched Gen.
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

Wild Scene at Kant Saginaw—A Bridge
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
“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

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

are quiet aud lady like. They are both frotu
