It Game From No Apparent Cause The Awful Suffering of a Ten-Year-Old Boy. During the Avant trial there was a considerable controversy as to wheth er lock-jaw ever .appeared without some apparent cause. The defense held that it was a disease that would make its appearance, occasionally, whether there was a wound to cause it or not. Here is a cade in point that is told by the Cincinnati Post, and will be interesting at this par ticular time: "Dr. D. D. Bramble, of No. 165 Broadway, is preparing a paper to be read before the Cincinnati Medical Society at the next meeting. "The paper relates to the disease and death of Johnny Massa, a 10 year old lad, who died several days ago from what is known in medical practice as idiopathic tetanus. In plain language the boy died from a raie form of lock-J w. "The victim was the son of John J. Massa, the oldest employe of the Wells-Fargo Express Company in this city. "He lives at No. 189 Broadway, Johnny was a remarkably healthy child, more thaji well developed for his age. About two weeks ago he was taken with convulsions, rapidly followed by a stiffening of the muscles of the neck and jaw. ' "In fact, the jaws soon became set. Drs, D. D. Bramble and J. C. Kunz were called in, and at once pro nounced the case to be one. of lock jaw. What mystified them was that after an examination they found no superficial injury, such as generally leads to lock-jaw. "The doctors then realized that that they had come across one of the worst and raiest forms of lock-jaw known to the medical world, and called idiopathic tetanus. "Idiopathic lock-jnw comes when it is least expected, and without any apparent cause. The first symptom is fainting spells, then convulsions, fol lowed by a stiffening of the muscles of the neck and jaw.' "In this case the patient went into convulsions that lasted at times two hours. Then came a relaxation, during which milk and other liquid food was administered by means of a glass tube. "During the last two days of the boy's illness the convulsions were more frequent and lasted longer. Every muscle in the hoy's body be came perfectly rigid, and he lny on the hack of his head and heels. In turning him over his whole body turned as if there were no joints. "The mere Isying of the finger on the boy's body threw him into an awful convulsion. The disease is al ways fatal, and after ten days of in tense suffering the boy died." A million Friends. A friend in need is a friend indeed, and not less than one million people have found just such a friend in Dr. King's New Discovery for Consuinp1 tion, Coughs and Colds.

Gold's Horse At New Providenee, and Another In the City. . Considerable excitement was caused by a runaway horse, with buggy ac companiment, between Clarksville and New Providence last evening about 5 o'clock. The turnout was the property of Ed. Gold. The horse ran away in New Providence, and came in the direction of Clarksville, like a ball shot from a cannon. All along the route he was seen by passers and many attempts were made to stop him, all of which proved futile. He kept gecond street until he reached West avenue, turn ing into this thoroughfare, leaving the remainder of the buggy at the corner of the above street and the avenue. " The shafts, however, re mained attached to the animal,which continued running, making a circuit and coming to the business part of the city, where he was captured. The buggy is almost a total wreck, both front wheels being demolished com pletely. The horse was not seriously hurt. nERE'S ANOTHER ONE. McQehee Bros., bought a very fine animal from some horse traders from Waverly yesterday. They hitched him to a buggy and he worked all right. When they put him to their delivery wagon, however, he did not do so well, running away with the wagon, apd trying to put it in Lynes Bros', butcher shop. There was very little damage done the vehicle, and none to the horse. For colds.croup, asthma, bronchitis and sore throat, use Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, and get the genuine. A 3 uvenlle Soolety.

The Court of Appeals Will Hold That It Was Not Regularly Passed and WU1 Kill It. A special . from Frankfort to the Courier-Journal says: "Both legislative houses seemed more anxious to know! what the Court of Appeals did Tuesday than to do something, themselves. Early in the morning a rumor spread to the effect.that the 'court's decision in the World's Fair case was ready to be handed down when court con vened at 11 o'clock, and as the pros pective opinion probably embraces the decision of a point io which all the members are Interested, many went below or outside to learn the truth of the report. There was no decision to-day, but it has leaked out, and it can be all but authoritatively stated that a decision has been reached by the court, and will be handed down on Thursday. This decision will kill the Kentucky ex hibit at Chicago past resuscitation. The court will hold that the bill was not constitutionally passed; that the final amendments to it were not adopted by the same vote required to pass it, and thus sustain every point made by the Governor in all of bis vetoes, and his position in recalling the Legislature in extra session to correct the mistakes that the Senate has refused to'admit. "It is possible that the opinion may go still further and hold that the Legislature had no right to make such an appropriation, even had the bill been finally passed by the re quisite uumbcr of votes. The court is said to be divided on this latter issue. If it is a part of the decision it will, of course preclude the possi bility of the passage of another bill on the subject, and those who dogged ly forced the matter into the courts will have succeeded in defeating the State exhibit. "Even members of the Senate Com mittee that sent out the famous ad dress to the people, and who have heard of the prospective decision, claim to be glad that the question of what constitutes a "final passage" has been settled by the courts, though settled in favor of the Governor's position and against their own."

They found a man answering tne description they, had in the smoker, but before they could lay hands on him he succeeded in putting out the lights.! (The officers rushed on him in the dark, however, and made the arrest. The prisoner was then taken off the train. DRAWING TO A CLOSE. Is the Argument in the Avant M urder Case. Col.

Delay In Filing It fur Probate Intima tion, llt'spcctlng It. New York. Dec. 8. Interest in Mr. Gould's will will be greatly stimulated by the announcement which was au thoritatively made that the document would not be tiled for probate for aome weeks possibly not for a month. This delay will give rise to no end of conjectures in Wall street, where it is the common belief that Mr. Gould's Erincipal properties are to belnanaged y trustees for a period of years. Some of the intim.ito friends of the dead mill ionaire wore questioned and disclaimed any knowledge of the will. The few persons who are in a position to know something about the will were speech less on that subject. It is well known that Mr. Gould was reticent to the verge of secretiveness about his will. There is reason to be live that he drew ' the whole or greater part of it himself and that no more than three persons besides himself know any thing about its provisions. Early in 1891, he, unattended, took the document to a safe deposit vault and locked it up. About six weeks be fore he died he went alone to the vault and took the will away with him. It will be subsequently retained either in his possession or in the custody of his lawyer. Possibly some changes were made in its provisions. One theory advanced to explain the delay in making Mr. Gould's will pub lic is that there are certain minor, yet important Gould interests which can be adjusted more advantageously before the terms of the will are made public. In some quarters it is said that the bulk of the property has been willed to George Gould, the remainder to be divided about equally among the other heirs. CRYING FOR PROTECTION. Great Convention of British Farmers In London. London, Dec. 8. Representatives from nearly every chamber of agricul ture in the United Kingdom were pres ent Wednesday morning at the national conference of British agriculturists in Memorial hall, Partington. Doleful tales were interchanged among the farmers present of farms being deserted, the soil un tilled and agriculture brought to the verge of ruin. There was a gen eral'consensus of opinion in favor of a Srotective tariff for agricultural pro ucts. The conference is being held in con formity with resolutions adopted by various chambers of agriculture throughout Great Britain to the effect that some decisive steps should be taken at once to relieve the distressed condi tion of British trade in general and British agriculture in particular and also declarii.g that no permanent good can be obtained without some stringent measures being adopted by which the British producer shall be placed upon a footing where he can compete with the foreign producer upon fairer terms. Especially is this urged as regards man ufactured goods that can be produced in this country. LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS. Found After Wandering for Nineteen Days Without Food. Charleston, W. Va., Dec. 8.

If Mrs. Deaoon la Found Guilty She Will Be Liable.to Fine and Imprison ment. Special to the Leaf-Chronicle. Aix, France, Dec, 8. The appeal of Edward Parker Deacon for an absolute divorce comes up in the court to-day, and in view of the vic tory achieved by Mrs. Deacon in the Court of Appeals, the action of her attorneys to-day is looked forward to. with unusual interest. The large influence of the Abeille family isused in every direction for Mrs. Deacon, and they will do every thing to save her from the conse quences of the action her husband has brought against her for the crim inal relations with Abeille., Should Mrs. Deacon be found guilty of this charge she would be liable to impris onment or fine or Loth. With refer ence to the charge against Mr. Dea con, that he subsidized certain jour nals, current rumor has it that the Abeille family spent 800,000 francs to obtain Mr. Deacon's conviction, and that of this sum 120,000 francs were spent in procuring articles hostile to him to be published In French newspapers. Mr. Dea con's lawyer, Maitre Clunot, the highest authority in France on Inter national lnw, proved to the court that French tribunals have no juris diction over foreigners in divorce cases unless both parties to the suit consent to submit tothe French law. The Judges of the Tribunal of the Seine admitted the coirectness of this contention and volunteered to give Mr. Deacon the custody of all the children if he so desired. This done the presiding judge re id Mrs. Deacon a lesson on propriety, which made her so angry that she ran out of court without hearing the end of it. She at once proceeded to the Convent of Our Lady of the Assumption and abducted her eldest daughter, Gladys, and has thus far managed to secrete her from Mr. Deacon. She appealed to the first chamber of tho Court of Appeal against the decision of the Tribunal of the Seine, and her side of the case ws ably presented by Huitre Bar boux. It is supposed that she will now obey the order of the Court and replace the child in the Convent of Our Lady of the Assumption. The judgment of the first chamber of the Court of Appeal remains in force until judgment is pronounced oo Mr. Deacon's application for divorce. Beware of frauds.
