Imitation is a great art. ' As, practiced
in the provision line it enaUles the Chicugo
manufacturer to mtike butter of Inrd and
soapstone, and cliceao of alkali and Bttlaoda.
To such perfection is this imitation car;
ried that before'long we shall not" be able
to tell a genuiuo nrticle of butter when we
sec it, unless, peradventure, it comcth in
the similitude of a cow. Oleomargarine,
is now mado to .imitate real buttor so
closely that it require the most caretul
observation to distinguish between them,
so far as appearance goes. For a year past
a Chicago firm has been manufacturing
batter out of lard,, shipping it to a'iypartt
of the country and even to England. This
firm, it is said, makes no secret of its
business, except as regards the process,
and claims that its artificial butter con
tains no injurious ingredients.
Mr. Cary Newsum, one of the night
clerks of the M. C. R. R., while coming
home a few nights ago, down Ohio Levee
from the depot, heard a manye'ling for the
"night watch" a few squares ahead of him,
and, as he approached within about ten
feet of the author of the alarm, ho observ
ed three men scampering away into the
darkness and, crawling through under the
cars, make tracks for the stone depot. The
man was slightly under the influence of
liquor but not too drunk to know what had
happened to bin), and he .told
the clerk that he had been, robbed of all
his money. His pockets were all turned
inside out and the poor wretch bemoaned
his loss like a helpless child. He had
been into a saloon not far away and taken
several drinks, und when paying for them,
had displayed a tolerably well filled pocket
book, which had not escaped the notice of
those around him.
If the women of Chicago arc not aris
tocratic, they are sensible and progressive,
which, in this republican country, is a
great deal better and more to the point.
Their last important move has been to or
ganize a mother's society, an association
where even those mothers who live in bow-
windowed brown stone fronts can meet and
exchange views upon the raising and care
of their little ones, and once a month listen
to a lecture from some physician or otber
person willing and able to address them
Many of the prominent physicians of Chi
cago have already testified their approval of
this plan by offering their services as lec
turers. In a city of such rapid growth as
Chicago, it may with reason be urged that
there are more "shoddy's" among the peo
ple than in cities that can boast of centen
nials and sesqui-ccntenmals. But if this be
shoddyism, one could wish it were epidemic
On Saturday last quite a disturbance
was created in the New York store by a
crowd of negroes, which for a while had a
very serious aspect and for which the parti
cipants were yesterday made to "walk the
chalk" m Squire Osborn's court. It ap
pears that five negroes, named respectively,
Lee Grant, James Daniels, Richard
Adams, James Brooks and Plum
ber Martin, were stauding in
the grocery department of the store, when
two colored women entered. Ono of the
negroes made a disparaging remark about
one of the women, and she, hearing it, be
came very indignant and indulged in a
very considerable amount of tongue-lashing.
One word brought on another, and
betore long the entire crowd was
engaged in cursing and threat
ening each ether, which endeby

The superior court at Chicago has just
been considering a queer case. Some time
ago William A. Sloan married a woman in
Ohio. Their matrimonial path was rugged
and Sloan moved to Iowa, procuring a di
vorce, and on the same day married another
woman iu Iowa. The courts of the latter
state declared the divorce proceedings il
legal and the second marriage void. A few
days ago, however, tho Chicago court hold
that according to the laws of Illinois the
divorce was valid. Therefore it follows
that it is illegal for Sloan to live with cither
wife, althoup-lt married to both. Mr. Sloan
is in a very bad fix. Ho has dipcovcrod to
his sorrow that thero is such a thing as too
much matrimony. An astuto newspaper
correspondent suggests that notwithstand
ing Sloan has children by both wives he
might loftily livo with his Ohio wifo in
Iowa, and with his Iowa wife in Illinois,
put he could not live with his Ohio wife in

Puducah is not a town proverbial for big
items, and the rumor that a whole family
were poisoned raised an excitement yester
day that was of an unusuiil order. The
first news of the disaster came to tho curs
of an Enterprise reporter early in the after
noon, and on hearing that Dr. Singleton
had been culled in to attend the sufferers,
ho at once started to learn the particulars,
which are below given. Tho victims are
Mr. P. 8. Givan, car inspector of tho P. &
E. RR., and his tw sons, aged reapec-
nively, three and seven years, and from
what can bo gleaned, it appears
that they were poisoned by dried beef
which they had eaten at dinner. Mr. Given
And family reside near tho depot, and the
m'portcr who called there last evening
found tlie victims suffcringgreatly from the
effects of the poison. Mr. Given 's family
consisted of himself, wifo and three chil
dren, but only ho and his two oldest chil
dren partook of the beef. Mr. Given was
compelled to leave his work about 2 o'clock
in the afternoon, owing to a deathly sick
ness which camo over him, accompanied
by excessive vomiting. On his arrival
home he found ono of his children
suffering in the same manner, and
shortly afterwards the oldest boy came
home from school in exactly the same con
dition. Dr. Singleton was at once called in,
and after a short time succeeded in reliev
ing, to some extent, the excruciating agony
of the sufferers. Dr. Singleton stated to
the reporter that the poisoning was un
doubtedly caused by the beef, but whether
from tho beef itself or from the mould, or
fungus growth on the outside of tho piece
of meat, he could not state. The condition
of the victims, at the time the reporter
called last evening, was quite serious,
although the attending physician has no
fears of any of the cases resulting fatally.
This should be a warning to people who
are in the habit ot eating cured meat with
out first cooking it, for cases wherein whole
families are poisoned from eating uncook
ed meats, or from trichina! are very fre
quent. No meat is healthy unless properly
cooked, and it is surprising that tho cases
are not more numerous, when tho careless
ness of the peoplo in this respect is consid
ered. AN INTERESTING LETTER.

UONOH WHERE HONOR IS DUE.
Mr. S. W. Capps, cf Scottsville, Macoupin
county, IU., writes, under date of Aug. 20,
1880, to Dr. Swayno & Son: "I sent to
you for three boxes All-healig Ointment,'

twenty-three years, and have been treated
for them by eleven different doctors, and
have paid out at least live hundred dol
lars yes, I would be safe in saying one
thousand dollars but never was cured of
that itching which annoyed mo almost to
death. When I became warm, particularly
at night, tho itching would begin, and tho
only relict was to bathe in cold water,
sometimes as often as six or seven times in
one night. I concluded to try your Oint-'
ment, and nave used two boxes, and tho
result is a perfect cure, and I will say that
it is the best Ointment in tho world, and
will recommend it to one and all as such.

Gov. Robinson's Death.
Denver, Nov. 29. That the shooting of
Gov. Robinson was accidental is now evi
dent from post-mortem examination, which
shows but one shot fired. The ball in its
course through the door struck a nail and
split and carried pieces of the nail with it,
thus causing the four wounds, supposed to
have been caused by other shots. There
had been a disagreement with the miners
for a few days, which caused belief

her daughter wero found weltering in their

was discovered that a double murder had
been attempted on her and her daughter.
The latter was knocked sense'
less, but tho old lady had life enough left
to alarm tho neighborhood and thus lead
to the identity of the murderer. Her head
had been beaten in a shapeless mass, and
when found she was insensible. Her
daughter's teeth wero crushed in and for
some timo she defied all efforts at resusci
tation. They declared that a man and
woman, or a man dressed as a woman, wore

Trice this morning, from whom a confes
sion of the murder of three months ago
was extorted. The colored population are
strongly in favor of the lynching ot Trice,
and if the confession be in any way cor
roborated that will probably be tho result.

chants, etc., the more 1 am surprised
at the economy shown everywhere. ,
Hamburg seems luxurious by the side
of it. ISo house with carpeting; and
few with rich furniture oven. A family
seems seldom to have more than two
servants. In some houses of wealthy , -merchants,
I have seen the dining-room "
furnished with beds in curtainod al
coves, so contracted is the accommoda
tion. And in nearly all, some of the
sitting-rooms are turned into bedrooms
as the first thing with a German is to
have a place in which to chat with hist
friepds, and after that, where to lay hia , '
head. I see, too, that the Hamburg
bountiful dinners are not in rogue here; -and
invitations are usually to supper
a substantial, plain meal. Yet there ia ,
the most constant and easy sociality
everywhere; and it is apparent at onoe

ino nip-nest culture ami renneracne
Money seems to be siient readily on en-
lertainmems in music ana an, ana ror
social enjoyment; but not much on ,
mere luxury and display. When a Ber- '
lin scholar, or man of business, gives a,
iarty, he does it in a simple, inexpensi
ve way srenerous enousrh in its pro
visions, but not of a very costly kind.
