To the Editor of the Republic: What a spectacle Indeed Is present!. when the man, who falsely and maliciously accued score of our wealthier citizens of robbery and perjury, refers to the language of one asking for specifications, as a "mali cious tirade," There can no cowardice equal that which is exhibited by making the charge above referred to, and then refuse to give a single Individual specification. I am warranted In making the assertion that Mr. Bums cannot from any evidence at his cammand. make a single case of "robber"" and "perjury;" and as an Inducement for 'him to give to the public the benefit of any knowledge he may possess bearing upon this point I will secure to him by bond, one hundred dollars for each case of "rob . bery" and "perjury" he will sustain against any of the "scores of our wealthier citi zens" whom he, in such wholesale manner, accuses. He says the proof of his assertion Is at the auditors omce. this I deny. f ne records of certain returns are at said office. ,.lf Mr. Buras's statement of robbery' and perjury be tme-then evidence must be located at Springfield, O. institute, Iabor pioducpl to amtradict the statement or re- ,tory and dispensary at 111 South Market "" V .

There has not been a scintilla of evidence produced to show that any man rich or ioor Is evading taxes! He further says, "The duty of specifica tion belongs to others " Why so? 1 submit to an Intelligent public that the duty of In dividual specification belongs to the man who asserts that he knows from "reliable Information, public and private," that "scores our wealthier citizens' "perjure themselves annually" and who Is seeking to pose as a ilitical reformer! 1 presume that w hen Mr. llunis's jwIit Ical and official associates were indicted for certain offenses he was seriously hurt, for he quotes "Sam Small says. The hit one howls,'" as he at once set up his infuriated howl. "Let the called jade wince." Mr. Burns denies that he made a plea for Davidson and Williamson, but that "they would doubtless make the plea." and then. not waiting for them to make the plea, he proceeded to make it for them, and quoted from the record. Mr. Burns seem greatly worried and an noyed by the fact that 1 did not choose to parade my signature in connection with mv communication to the llErcw.ir. That is a matter of much less immirtance to the public than the names of those whom von denominate robbers ami perjurers. Mr. Bums has made an unwarranted as sertion unon unnamed citizens. An un named citizen asks him to give names of narties airalnst whom he has "information. public and private," tnai wouia warrant ms declaration.

He lias bought a young orchard grove of about one hundred trees, with house aud furniture, and expects to move his family here the coming season. If Mr. Warner will bring a few more of his kind Interlachen will give them a warm welcome, Mr. A. L.

It has a question box, with question assigned to its members at subsequent meetings Recitations readings, dialogues, inter spersed with music, vocal and instrumental, make an enjoyable evening. Miss Ellen W. Bushnell, of Springfield, the critic of the club, pretty sharply criticised the Sand Spur last evening, and clearly defined the prerogatives of an editor one of whicli was to keep out objectionable matter, as well as to insert that w hich was desirable. Among the subjects treated were: "The Heathen Chinese," by Miss E. W. Bushnell; "Impressions of Paris,". by George W. Hastings; "Shikspeare," by Prof. P. G. Woodruff; "The Tucker Bill." by Warren Snyder; "The Eastern Question Defined," by Miss Bushnell; "Journal of Foreign France," by Harry G.

Behind them itood and sat as many more of their elder brothers I and sisters and mothers rnd fathers, the crowd winding itself out into the broad hall and even reaching up far on the wide stair case. All eyes were on the curtains conceal- I Ing one end of the room It was sunshine I ouUide, but the great window curtains wtro dropped and the room was brightened from . candelabra and chandelier. The little men anil women duln t know ex actly wliat there was behind that mysterious curtain, nor did any of the graver folk, ex cept a few who hail own let into the preeious secret They guessed there were to be private theatricals, but when 4 o'clock was chimed and the curtain were drawn to either side all tliatwas revealed was a crescent of wven empty chairs.

Minstrel entertainments in private houses are gotten up chiefly to amusotho younger element, and incidentally they add variety to tho routine of those who are in the full rush of social life.

The oddity of a minstrel show in a private drawing room has been picked up as being far more entertaining than private theatricals, for private theatricals are getting to lie almost c lwre, and besides require so much preparation for their successful pre sentation. The programme is specially pre pared, and after it is all over the little ones are wild to go to the impromptu dressing room and soo how the whito men make them selves darkeys. New York Tribune. THE FASTER'S FIRST DINNER. Merlatti'a Knlle and Fork Idle Eren After the Fifty Day Fat. Merlattl. contrary to expectation, accom plished his extraordinary fasting feat, which : commenced fifty days before. There has ' been some loubt as to his having completely fulfilled tho terms of his engagement, since ' ho began to take a little chemically prepared i wino at 5:30 oclock one afternoon, thestipu- latod timo being 0:30. Ho was also given ( somo pepsiim and meat powder, but his stomach rejected them. Tho wine, however, did him good, and he was able to swallow it ' in repeated gulps and with infinito relish. According to the opinion ol somo ot mo .liv-tnn lie will be unablo to cat on v solid fo,l ff.T-twentv.firo .lavs to come, Those who flocked to tho Grand Hotel recently for the purpose of seeing the Italian take his first installment of nourishment were rather disappointed at finding, not the corjiso ,:,. -t.;,U !...,. ..-r.,.1 l.i.t r mnii still apparently in health and spirits, although languid in body and amende in feature. Merlatti was propped up on pillows and re clined on a couch, near which were exhibited some of his drawings. A long counter kept the frequent and inquisitive crowds of men and women who thronged to see him from approaching too near his resting p-ace. Tho comparative healthi-A of the man's a ppear anco after so long n fast can only bo attribut ed to tho fact that the pangs of hunger aro mitigated and intermittent after the first five or six: days. Thus, when I first saw Merlatti there wi a strong expression of pain on his face, and his eyes were of an unnatural brilliancy. Thcso symptoms were quite con sistent with his case, because the agony of hunger is most acuto in the earlier stages of suffering. Since then he lias been in a state of languor and exhaustion, varied occasion ally with feverishness, pains in the head, frenzied dreams and touches of madness. Latterly he had begun to suffer more severely in the head and stomach, but his energy has enabled him to persist in his de termination to tho bitter end. Efforts were of course made to make him break Ids fast a fortnight ago, yet there is every reason to believe that he has done his best to subsist on nothing during the fifty days but the filtered water. I left Merlatti this evening at tha banquet, over which he presided, in the Grand Hotel. Every seat at the tables was full, and nearly one hundred guest's, among them being some women and children, were present The Italian sat among tho mem bers of the medical committee, a lady being on his left He seemed to regard the rich viands, appetizing sauces and sparkling wines spread out in profusion liefori him with a half sad, half amused air, but lu: knife and fork were silent amid the clitter of plates and the popping of champagne. Paris Cor. London Telegraph. Uaniih the Kailroad Stove. For tho last forty years, since railroads have been equipped with heavy cars and run at high rates of speed, scarcely a year has passed without the loss of lifo from burn ing car wrecks. The method of heating cart now Is substantially the same as it was forty years ago. Each car has a stove, and the only improvement yet made is a better system of securing them more firmly and putting them in a sort of metal casing. But the be ginning of the present year has shown again, and with horrible emphasis, that the precau tions against the burning of wrecked cars are totally inadequate, and that the present system of heating should be superseded by something radically different The method employed upon tho elevated railroads in this town shows that a train of cars can be perfectly heated without the os sibility of fire in case of accident. That method consists in a pipe furnished with steam from the locomotive, and it serves th whole train, each car being heated equally from end to end. It is a very simpie plan, and it should be adopted upon all railroads. There would bo another very great ad vantage in the use of this system. As it is now, the brakeman tends the stove, and as he has other duties, ho piles on all the oo.il the stove will hold and lets it go. The usual rtt-ult is that when there is any fire at all it is a roarer, enough to roast anvthing as far away as the sixth row of seats and to give all the passengers headache. But if the en - gineer controlled the heating he would bo able to regulate it with more constant atten - tion and more disinterested iudrment. Bv next ysar there should not be a single sto e in use in a passenger tram in this whol- country, nnd if tho present engines are not big enough to supply the additional steam required bigger ones should be put in their places. New York Sun, New Method or ltiver Mining. A novel way of river mining is now being carried on near tho Garibaldi Mining com pany's property on the Stanislaus river two mile below Kobinson's Ferry. The plan consists of a scow twenty by sixty feet on which is placed a steam engine and boiler of fifteen horse jtower with a powerful suction pump attached. The pump not only throws an immense stream of water, but at the same time draws the sand, rocks and gra el from tho bed of the river at the rate of fifty tons per hour. The pump discharges into the head of a flume running the entire length of the scow, and drops the material, less the gold, some ten feet away from tho stern of the lioat. Any largo rocks that may ob struct the free working of the pump ore hustled out of the rsy in short order by large aud jxiwerf ul derricks. As the Stanis laus river is noted for its leavy gold deposits the results can hardly fail to meet if not greatly exceed, the anticipations of the Chi cago capitalists who have it in charge.

"A great many persons," said Professor Collctt. "who are considered well informed, seem to think there are no eagles in Indiana. I Tho truth is we ha e quite n number, a great I many more than wo need. It was that sen I sible old utilitarian, Benjamin Franklin, who I suggis-tiil the turkey as our national bird, I objecting to the proud engloaiuui-epublicaii, 1 becauso lie had lioen appropriated as the ein 1 blem of sovereignty by n number of mon i archical powers.

In my own neigiiboi hood, in Vermilion county, I have known an eagle to tear out tho eyes of a ! dozen lambs, frightening the ewes and keci ing hem nt a distance Ify Mapping their wings. M)T COWARntT, bct w.utv. "I never knew nn eagle to attack an ani mal that was caiable of-csistanco. Not that I mean to say ho if cowardly, but he is wary. Tho eagle, as commonly known, is a solitary, melancholy bird. Ho is usually seen nlono in his flights, soaring at o great height, lieciiuso his e)e Is cajiaUe of measur ing great distances. Their nests are built of coarse sticks or brush, not well put together, on tho top of an inaccessible rock or some tall monarch of tho forest It is commonly believed that the occupation of such a tree for the nest of nn eagle causes its death; hence, in story and In pictures the eagle nest tree is always shown as a dead tree. It is not true that the eagle's occuianey kills the tree, but he chooses a dead or leafless tree for tho purposes of observation. Besides, the eggs in the nest may have enemies not merely animals, but birtls, like jays and crows. "I have little doubt that jtersons occasion ally see eagles and mistake themfor other birds, tho eagle being so rare. Perhaps, however, many of cur oldest inhabitants have not seen more than one or two innhfe- time. It seems that the eagle, hko the wild red man, requires a largo hunting ground. ; By a sort of arrangement a territory of five ' or ten miles square is n-Kigned to n pair of eagles, though they do not sail in company. ' They nl'-oys keep the samo territory nnd the i same nesting place. I "We have in Indiana tho lad and the golden eagles, the former tho uiore common, the latter extremely rare. Frequently the females and young moles of silvered or bald eagles are mistaken for tho golden and other species. Ail males of tho bald family arc ornamented with a white crest after attain- the age of 2 years. Before Hint age they I cannot readily Is) distinguished from the j females in their more somber plumage. For I many years I had seen but few eagles, so I i was surprised to learr. that on an adjoining ; farm to my own in Verruihoti county, In- I diflTVI Within tWO mil of 111V rtsideUCe. ' there was a bald englo assembly that it was , held there every night, nnd wa the center to which eagles came from a distance of more than fifty miles in all directions, for u flight of fifty miles or more is nothing to this mighty winged bird. ItEETI.NO FOB, COUXSEL. "They came in the dusk of the evening, and doubtless met for counsel and direction more than ruero companionship. As the birds camo in one after anotlier there would be shrieks of welcome and noise very start ling to the listener. This national congress, as I call it, has existed for a period that the mind of man runneth not to the contrary. The roosts aro on lofty, bare limbed syca mores in a very solitary place. By actual count these togles numbered fifty-three, of which twenty-four were males ami the re mainder either females or males tliat had not reached tho age of wtaring tho white crest. 'Vhy don't eagles increase in number? IVell. everybody who gets a chance to kill an eagle docs so. Another reason is that their nests are so badly built as not to fur nish security to eggs in caso of storm, and they ore thrown down and the eggs broken. I noticed in a paper that an eagle had re cently been killed in Greene county, I think it was that measured eleven feet four inches from tip to tip. I had a wounded eagle for a pet for some time. Ho had a broken wing and could not fly. He would hold a live chicken with one set of claws and tear it into shreds. He was turned loose in a garden and fed regularly every day. Cats, possums, and coons kept at a respectable distance from the wounded king of tho air, and it was unlucky for any strange dog to get within his majesty's clutch. He never could escape without leaving a slight testi monial in the way of hair or hide behind him. Tho brilliancy of the eye of the eagle when angry is wonderful, it is dazzling and magnificent in its fury." Indianapolis Journal. The Azorean Peasantry. tVith exports falling off and no manu facturing interests to sieak of the condition of the Arsrean peasantry is deplorable. To add to these evils most of the islands are overpoptlnted and wages are extremely low, unskilled, labor nt times commanding no more tlian 15 or 20 cents of our money per day. Of course, the cost of living is very little, or people could not exist on these wages; but it is only a bare existence that the poorer classes obtain. Their food is of tho coarsest description, their clothing con fined to a few girments of cheap material, and their houses are almost bare of furni ture. Many of these houses are unfloored, and havo not even a tabic or cliair. Tho women sit on rugs of native linen spread flat on tho floor, and their children ore al lowed to run entirely naked or with one looso garment reaching from tho shoulders to tho hi)s. It is no wonder that, under the circum stances, great numbers of the islanders emi grate. Thousands havo gone to the Sand wich Islands and to America, where tho great majority settle in California, and more are going every year.

I was redced to a living skeleton. Friends, family and physician had given me up. 1 was keeping the spark of life alive with a diet of raw eggs and milk. Now both stomach and liver are performing their functions. I have manr friends in Western Ohio. N E. Iowa and S.W. Mo. who would like to know this." Tiik HoxksT Shake", although hedoes not boast of his purity, always makes goods that can be relied ujion; for instance, his Shaker Extract of Roots (Siegel's Sjrup) is really a valuable article. It is not recom mended as a cure-all, but as a remedy for one single disease, viz: Indigestion, in which disease it works like a charm. It is an acknowledged fact, by a multi tude of exierlencetl witnesses, that Dr. Teague's Great Medicated Air Inhalent Remedy will positively cure catarrh, asth ma and all bronchial and pulmonary affec tions In almost every instance.
