Patent Medicine Fakir Taken In.
Oha.ua, Tex., March 10. 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.

Want Ten Tneneand n "Sent.
Washington, March 17. 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.
