Secretary Sherman was asked by a re
jxirter to-day alsiut the Anderson' inter
view of last Saturday. The secretary re
ferred the reporter to Judge Shellabarger,
who. as his counsel, would, he said, tell all
that was necessary on the subject.
Judge Shellabarger, when asked about
the matter, replied: "Well, I will nay
this much: Mr. Anderson came here, as I
understand, fronn Judge Marks. Marks
showed a letter from Anderson some davs
before, saving that he wanted to come here
and thought he would come, or something
to that effect. On Saturday Judge Marks
came to my office and said that Anderson
was urging him to take him up to see Sher
man, and that he repeatedly refused to go
with him, because that he did not wished
to be mixed up in Anderson's affairs; but
at last he consented to go if Gov. Hahn
would also go along. My advice was not
asked as to going or not going. So far as
I can rcinemlicr. later in the afternoon
Judge Marks came to me and said that he
had asked Secretary Sherman if he would
see Anderson on Anderson's solicitation
that he would se him, and that Sherman
had sent him ( Marks i to me to ask mens
his lawyer whether it would be proper for
him to see Anderson. I said yes, certainly, if
lie lias no olijections, but that others ought
to he present to prevent anv erroneous
statement being made as to what occurred
during the interview. I the-i said to
Judge Marks that I would go ut any tiiu:'.
I went immediately to the secretary's of
fice, and told him the same. He very em
phatically expressed to nie his objections to
seeing Anderson, I saying to hiin.' however,
that I saw no objection to his seeing Ander
son in the presence of other persons. Very
soon afterwards Anderson, Judge Mark's
and Gov. Hahn came into the secretary's
rooms together. After some time of silence
a conversation passed between the secretary
and Anderson, which, I have U-cn told
since, was reduced to writing by Mr. Sher
man's secretary. At the end of this con
versation the secretary asked if 1 desired
to ask Mr. Anderson any questions. I said
no. That I had come there because I had
understood that Mr. Anderson had solicited
an interview, and I came to overhear what
he had to say. Thereupon Mr. Anderson
begin to talk pretty loud ami to protest
that he had gone over there on the invita
tion of others and not because he wanted
the interview. To this a denial was then
and there interposed by Judge Marks, mid
I U-lievr- Gov. Hahn,' alleging that they
had gone over w ith him at his urgent solici
tation. There the matter ended, and And
erson and those who came with him left.

Tlie bill introduced to-day in the house

AN ARKANSAS COW.
Tin? yield of milk from northern dairy
cow. is incredible to people in regions
where cattle are raised mostly for their lieef
and hides, Judge Grant was 'in Little Rock,
Ark., in attendance at the United States
court. One morning he saw a farmer with
a slouch hat, ami genuine butternut suit,
trying to sell n cow in the market then'. It
was a large, long-homed animal, and the
planter was informing a man that the cow
would give four quarts of milk n day If
well fed. '
Up stepped the judge. ''What do you
ask for the cow;"
"Aliout thirty dollars. She'll give five
quarts of milk if you feed her well' replied
the planter, and he proceeded to describe
Jier good qualities.
Said the judge: "I have cows on my
farm, not more than half as big us vour
cow, which give twenty to twenty-five quarts
tn miiK a nay.
The planter eyed the judge sharply for a
moment, as if trying to remcmlier whether
he had ever seen him before or not, ami
then asked: ''Stranger, where do you
'My home is in Iowa."
"Yes, stranger, I dont dispute it. There
was heaps of nogi-rs from Iowa down here
during the war, and. .stranger, they were
the all-firedest liars in the whole Yankee
army. Mebhe you must be an officer in
some of them regiments"
The judge slid out of the court house.

One of the theaters has introduced n
new idea, in connection with its lxx office,
which is worth describing. In its lobby
stands a square box, mounted on a hand
some pedestal, the box containing an exact
model of the interior of the' theatre. Then;
is a glass front, through which you look at
tin- tlu-ater as if from the stage. There is
a tiny model of every seat' in the house,
nnd its number and letter plainly indicated,
so that you may choose your seat, or see
jut what the position is of that which you
an- offered at the lox office. Then at the
sides of the box are glass w indows, through
which you can look at the stijge, and sec
just what view you can get of is from any
seat in the house.
A Mantkkst AnsnuiiTY. It is manifest
ly absurd to claim for a mere stimulant,
tonic and alterative properties. Yet this is
w hat i daily done by the vendors of cheap
local bitters, colored to make them look
attractive, and agreeably flavored, but the
alcoholic basis of w hich is of the vilest and
most hurtful description. The transcend
ent success of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
the leading alterative tonic of the United
States, has induced many of these compoun
ders of drams in disguise, to attempt the
counterfeiting of this standard medicine,
but their efforts have never proved success
rul on a large scale, and they have them
selves in many instances "come to grief,"
through the instrumentality of the law.
The genuine Bitters have, indeed, a
spirituous basis, but they are emphatically
a medicine, since their Imtanie ingredionts
are signally efficcaious in overcoming and
preventing chills and fever, dyspepsia, liver
complaint, constipation, and many other

should be handed in two day before want
