In the Hop Porous Plaster the virtues of
Fresh Hops are combined with strengthen
ing and stimulating balsaiu?, and its cures
of Weak Back, Pain in the Side, Rheuma
tism, and Neuralgia or Pain in the Chest
are simply marvelous, it being more iftka
cinus and thorough than any liniment or
liquid remedies. You'll say so after using.
Fur the benefit of those who may be suff
ering with rheumatism or neuralgia, I give
you the following as my experience. I have
suffered more or less with rheumatism for i
number of years, also general debility. For
the last year the trouble has coustanty in
creased, so that for a mouth I could tot
drss myself, could not get up from my
chair without help. From my head to my
feet every cord and muscle was stiff and
sore. During this time I used various rem
edies, all to no purpose, and continued to
grow worse. My attention was called to
your Athlophoros; I procured a bottle of our
popular druggists, Jones & Bryaut; on the
2 2d day of January I commenced to use it.
I took live doses, then slept easily till eight
o'clock, A. M. I got up and dressed myself
and walked out without a cane, I was as
tonished at the result, could hardly realize
that it bad produced such an effect. 1 am
getting to be an old man(72). I dont sup
pose it will make me a young man, but will
help the lamp of life to burn down calmly.
Advice to Mothers).
Are you disturbed at night and br ken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of tutting teeth? If so,
send at oucc and get a bottle of Mrs. Wins
low's Soothing Syrup for Children Teeth
ing. Its value is incalculable. It will re
lieve the poor little sufferer immed
iately. Depend upon it, mothers, there is
no mistake about it. It cures dysentery and
diarrhoja, regulates the stomach and bow
els, cures wind colic, softens the gums, re
duces inflammation, and gives tone and
energy to the- whole system. Mrs. Wins
low's Soothing Syrup for Children Teething
is pleasant to the taste, and is the prescrip
tion of one of the oldest and best female
nurses and physicians in the United States,
and is for sale by all druggists throughout

Additional Notes of General Interest.
A brightly -polished, solid brass plate,
half an inch thick, about tiLrhteen iuehes
wide and thirty inches lung, is set into the
wall, surrounded by an ornamental case of
oak, just over the first platform on the stair
case leading to the second floor. This
plate bears the following inscription in

This beautiful plate was manufactured
by J. and R. Lamb, of New York, the lead
ing manufacturers of church and other
ornaments in the country.
It is not open to dispute, we believe, that
the Library Building is the most hand
somely finished building in the city. All
the wood work i3 tastefully carved and
dressed off in a manner that will not fail to
attract aud please the artistic eye. More
over, it has, in cor junction .with its general
beauty of form, also that substantial appear
ance which is insejierable iu one's mind
from a public building. So appropriate in
design aDd neat iu liuieh is all the wood
work iu the building that Sume may hesi
tate to believe that every window sash and
door, and the casings, in fact all the de
licate wood work iu the house, was de
signed and manufactured by our own citi
zensdesigned by Mr. L. D. Bay ley and
manufactured to order in the establishment
of the Lancaster & Rice Company.
We failed (o mention before that the
chairs and tables, all the furniture except
ing the show-cases and shelving, were fur
nished by Mr. Eichhoff aud does him no
little credit, for everything is imperfect
harmony with tho general surroundings.
The stained glass was procured by Mrs.
Safford from the W. LI. Wells & Bio. Com
pany, Chicago. It is a marvel of beauty
as seen from within on a bright day. It is
in single plates of semi-circular form. For
the large windows of which there are four
teen, the plates are seven feet by three aud
a half iu dimensions; and iu the centre of
each is a circular frame or wreath surround
ing either a cluster ot flowers or the live 1
size bust of one of the literary geniuses of
The institution is not yet finished as any
one may tee, although every possible effort
was made to have it so. The fence bound
ing it on the sides and rear is but temp
orary. The ground will be filled more, so
as to make it aueven plat covering four lots
An ornamental iron fence, which has al
rca ly been ordered will.be put up along the
lroiit of the premises, and the grounds will
be adorned with trees and shrubs and
grass and flowers in due time. In the li
brary room the shelving is not all up yet.
Iu the lecturo room and elsewhere in the
building, a number ot fine pictures are to
be put up, and not a few minor items re
main to be attended to, which only the
course of time will bring to notice. It is
understood that Mrs. Safford, while away
on her present tour, will procure a pair of
statues to be placed in the niches at the
right and left of the entrance to the hall
fromthe vestibule. These niches are four
Mr. L. D. Buyley has had general su
pervision of the construction of the build
ing. The original architect was a Chicago
man, but he furnished only the rough out
lines of the building and, for some reason,
refused to give any details at all. It was
left with Mr. Bayley to prepare all the de
tails of the plan, to inveut all the pleas
ing designs in the wood woik all over the
building and to generally direct the execu
tion of the geucral plan.
But while wo are endeavoring to give
due credit to all who contributed iu any
way toward the construction of this beau
tiful institution aud its ultimate brilliant
opening to the public, we must not omit
The Board of Directors of the Library.
Also! and more particularly, tho librarian
and her assistants who have been very
hard at work continuously for a number of
days, putting tho Library iu order in its
new quarters, so that tho public might be
readily served. Nor dure wo slight Mr.
II. II. Candee and Mrs. Candee, who were
both untiring iu their efforts to aid the
noble donor, Mrs. Safford, in every possible
way. And last but not by any means
least, the ladies of tho Library Association,
of whom Mrs. Safford was a leader, must
not bo forgotten. They, after all, aro, in a
certain sense, primarily responsible for the
construction of the grand building that now
adorns our city, for they (list ere! ted the
need for it by establishing tho public Li
brary and doiiating it to the city. A band
of noble Women, these, whose names all
deserve to lie engraved under that of Mrs.
Safford, upon tablets indestructable. For
those now living this would uut he
necessary, for every one of these noblo
spirits is kiiown and is revered because of
her earnest efforts for the common good,
and may their memories be handed down to
all future generations hero also.
Resolutions of Respect.
At a regular meeting held Sunday, by
Branch 238, Catholic Knights of America,
the following resolutions, in memory of the
late Ernest B. Petlit, were read and adop
Whereas, God iu'his wisdom has removed
from his sphere of usefulness our late be
loved brother, Ernest B. PeWit, whose un
timely death robs a loving wife of tho sweet
companionship of an affectionate husband,
helpless children of the providing care of an
indulgent father, the Catholic Khights of
the membership of an endeared and zealous
member, the poor and suffering of the city
of the practical charity and solacihg sym
pathy of one who, in their sickness, was
ever with them, and iu death sat by their
side, the community at large of au honest,
pure, enterprising citizen, therefore bo it
Resolved, That to the woe-stricken wife,
though we cannot stay the tear or lienl the
spirit wounds, realize the impoteney of con
solation to a grief like her's wo extend,
nevertheless, our heartfelt condolence.
To the fatherless children, whose young
mmds as yet cannot grasp their loss in its
plenary awfulness, wo have naught to offer.
Their grief is Bhert, their growing minds
will soon grow above their wounds, their
plastic affections soon twine around new ob
jects. For his many friends wo have a fel
low feeling; their grief is our's; our hearts
are sad, and 'earnest words can but half
express that sadness. 'Tis natural to say
naught of the dead but good, but to-day, wo
feel, the pen would refuse to write any word
of him, whom to know was to love.
Resolved, That, as a token veneration for
his memory, these resolutions bo recorded
in our minutes, and that a copy be sent to
the bereaved relatives, and also be publish
ed in The Caiuo Bulletin and Argus.

The Five-Cent Fare Bill.
The Republican papers are endeavoring
to turn tho working people of the country
agaainst Goveuor Cleveland because he ve
toed what is known as the "five-cent fare
bill." None of them give the facts in the
case, which are a sufficient explanation to
every intelligent citizen whether a "work
ingman" or not, and which proves that Gov.
Cleveland did bis plain duty when he ve
toed the bill, although in doing so he ran
the risk of having his action used against
him by unprincipled political enemies
Tho veto of the live-cent fare bill was bused
upon a clause in tho charier of the elevated
road, under which the State was bound not
to reduce fares until an examination had
been mado and a certain rate of profit
shown. This had not been done. The
honor of the State therefore was pledged by
its contract, and the Gaveuor had no aler
nativo but to veto tho bill as no State has a
right under the constitution to pass auy law
I impairing the obligation of contrcts.
After the bill was vetoed, the examina
tion was made and the commissioners repor
ted that the receipts of the elevated road
did not authorize tho proposed reduction
under the statute. A politician like Blaine
would most probable have listened to pop.
ular clamor and disregarded the plain prov
isions of the law. Iu doing so, Guvenor
Cleveland showed hiuiselt to bo an honest
executive official and not a self-seeking

O'nmli-iiiiiPtl to Death.
"Condcinnod to death!" Ever sinco
the judge spoko the awful words in tho
hush of tho crowded court-room they
have been rinrinr in his ears. His
nerves had been strained to their
utmost tension when tho words wero
spoken, and they seamed to havo been
burned into his brain. When ho closed
his eyes tho sentence stood out red,
where all elso was black. When ho
forgot himself for a moment ho camo
back with a start to a sonso of bitter
recollection, as something scorned to
whisper in his ear, "Condouineil to
death." At first tho tinio of execution
appeared mercifully far off, but day
after day passed like tho steady drop
ping of wiiter, and each fair summer
morning that woke tho world to tho
enjoyment of life and beauty, moroly
for him tinged tho stono walls with
gray and gavo a more fearful signifi
cance to tho words that haunted him
"Condemned to death."
lio wakes iu tho niiddlo of tho silent
night and sits holt upright with tho
overwhelming pressure of somo undo
linablo fear upon him. Ho asks him
self: -What is it?" "Where am 1?"
He must have had a horrible dream.
IIo must wake himself. Ho will laugh
at this when sleep has completely left
him. But as ho arouses himself ho
sees tho terriblo letters liko phosphor
escent handwriting on tho wall of his
cell, and ho falls back aghast as if
struck by an unseen hand. Whichever
way he turns tho words "Condemned
to death" coufrout him. With a groan
he sinks on his hard Led. Tho grim
reality is more fearful than tho dread
ful dream. He tries to forget to sleep,
if possible. The distant bells, which
tell to others tho hour of tho night,
toll out to him: "Coiulemned to death,
condemned to death!"
At last tho very rhythm of tho words
in his ear brings on a troubled slum
ber. But what must bo tho dreams of
a wretch sent to sleep with such a
hideous lullaby?" IIo dreams, per
haps, of tho man in tho room of over
dosing walls that at last crush him
to death. IIo sees JiimseJf iu a narrow
passage, from which there is no escape.
An iron grating shoves him toward tho
other end. As ho nears it ho sees iu
his pathway an open grave. IIo grasps
tho iron frame work that is sending
him remorselessly on. IIo puts forth
his strength, but it avails him nothing.
Tho next ruovo will bo tho last. IIo
llings himself against tho wall and
shrieks for help. Tho grave fades
from his sight, aud ho finds himself
grasping tho iron bars of his cell. IIo
draws a breath of intenso relief, but
tho next instant begins tho dread re
"Condemnod to death."
IIo has his wild ana fruitless dreams
of escape and thou tho madness of self
destruction makes him for tho moment
insane. Thero aro tho hours of unut
terable despair when ho sits on his bed
with his head bowed and his iingors
tangled iu his hair. IIo listens with a
dull, mechanical agony to tho footsteps
of tho death watch on tho stono floor
outside, and they seem to slowly croak
tho words, "To death, to death, to
At times it is impossible for him to
believe that he, who is sound iu health

A Kaliy's Tears. ;.
An intelligent writer, of Salt Lake
City, Mrs. . Paddock, iu a letter tells
this story: "A few years ago an edu
cated young journalist camo to Salt
Lake City from Europo, with his young
wife. Both been mo sincero believers
in Mormonism. Then strong pressure
was brought to hear by the priesthood
upon tho husband to forco him into
polygamy. Tho wife finding opposi
lion iu vain, at last gave her nominal
consojit. A second bride was brought
into tho house. In a short time tho
first wife becamo a mother, but the in
fant never cried aloud. It camo voice
less into tho world. But it wept iu se
cret all tho time, bleeping or waiting
the tears llowed from its closod eyes,
aud in a few weoks it died. Tho moth
er said it died of a broken heart. Ev
ery day of its life it shed the tears
thui lu nmtlmr lind reorossod before its
birth. Its weeping faeo is tho symbol
of tho face of Utah. A territory o!
precious minerals and wealth of soil,
with Intoxicating air and blue sky, but
filled with silent woe."
