Yester day a man by the name of Lewis, claiming to be an agent for the Hot Spring's medlciine company located at Little Book, Ark., made his appear ance in our town, and by the aid of costly premiums, smooth talk and n letter of recommendation purporting to have been given by the Smith drug company at Texarkana,suooeed edln gulling the firm of Cameron & Plnson, druggists, to the tune of $10 and undoubtedly would have made good bis escape had It not been for Robert. Burnett of Corley, whom he had sold also. Mr. Burnett, It seems, had his suspicions aroused and Dy the liberal use of the telegraph found not only that his recommendation from the Smith drug company was bogus, but that there was no suoh company as the Hot Springs medicine company at Little Bock, and that his modiolus was simply salt water with chlorine and seasoned with cinnamon and rust to suit the taste. Mr. Burnett follow ed on the midnight train, and after consulting with Messrs. Cameron A Plnson called In Constable Curley and looked the gentleman up, who after looking over thi matter conoluded to disgorge, when be was allowed to de part in peace. Messrs. Cameron & Plnson are highly elated at getting their money back, and say it will be a very chilly day when they are caught again Dy tne same Kinaoi Dan. Yellow Fever Germs. Mobile. Ala .

The resig nation of Senator Chaso UDon tho threshold of his seoond term of six years in the highest legislative body'in tho world haj aroused renewed interest on tho subjeat that is bound to rcociye early and oarnest consideration in con gress. Senator Chaso in private gives as the roason why ho can no longer serve his stato and country in the leg islature that the compensation was not sumcient to,auow mm longer negleot ol his business. Ho has expressed tho opinion that ho is considerably poorer tor nis legislative oxpenonce than be would hae been had he remained attho helm of his business ship and directed its course through tho breakers of the past ten or fifteen years. He is one of the largest cotton manufacturers in New England, and soveral times dur ing the recent tariff debate in the sen ate evinced his familiarity with that subjeot in its relations to the industry in which he was interested, and gave valuable assistance to his' republican colleagues in the discussion of the senate substitute for the Mills bill, The question of increasing the com pensation of congressmen has been re-' ceiving earnest attention, tho sonators, especially, of late, and there is an over whelming sentiment among them in favor ot making tne salary of congress men $10,000 a year instead of $5,000 as it is at present. Members of iho house of representatives, while thor oughly in sympathy with the senators on this point, are not yet ready to go to ibo mil lengiu uesiruu uy taeiu, fearing a repetition of tho outbreak of connuro visited upon tho congress of 1873 for its action on tho salary ques tion. But it is argued by the advocates ofinoreajed salary that what the peo ple were indignant about then was tho "back pay grab" icaturo, and that if tbe increaso were made to date from the end of the fifty-first congress no serious op position would be made to it.
