Railroads, are neither better nor

With no opposition, the temptation iI
to Itake the most of the situation, f(
would be irresistable, and freight c
charges would increase. The op- r
position of thes steambloats has been cr
insufficient, to hold down prices.
Local freights are entirely too high,
and without the steamboat oppo
sition, there would be a bad state ,
of affairs..
The boats are not the best dis
pensers of justice in the world.

presents itself, are, in nowise hash- h

one, but enough has been said to I
show the demoralizing influence of :
steamboats. a
And there is no remedy, for this 1
n evil, of leakage. It may seem a
little queer for cases of canned
goods to spring such a serious leak
, as will permit a can of peaches or
a box of sardines, to leak out, but

happened. It has been attempted I

mLa wrITaISK ntLL.s A DOG.
t. Mr. Whitmarsh has been very
much annoyed by dogs lately, or
rather a dog. This dog the prop
erty of a neighbor, was not an or
Sdinary looking dog, being of a sort
of brindle salmon color, and pos
Ssessed of one buttenrmilk looking
eye, while the other was a decided
in dark green. Neither was hlie an
at ordinary acting dog. for in addition
ke to the common trick of sucking
ro eggs, he seriously interfered with
Mr. Whitnarsh's dinner on several
oceassions; one time, having eaten
' up all the butter on hand, another
il time. carrying off a fine roast, Mr.
CR Whitmars~h had imlported from
ty Vicksburg, and on still another
occasion, causing the disappearance
v.of a choice lot of b!ane mange,
r which had been wprepared for the
Ibenefit of some friends of Mr.
n Whitmarah who dined with himn
is that day.
hi It was this last straw that broke
Sthe camels back, and Mr. Whit
d marsh concluded to kill the dog.
lie therefore loaded up a shot
gun with a full dose of buckslho',
c and also loaded an old army mau
ket with a ball cartridge. Forget
ting that he had loaded the musket
he put another cartridge in it. The
dlog was off visiting t!hat daly and
(lill not put in :in appearance. It1!
along albout eight o'clock in the
evening he came tlhr ,ugh the fei'.e
where a picket was off, and bezl, nn
looking around for soniiFthing to
I eat.
Mr. Whitmnarsh who was on the
look out for him, slipped out to the y|
fence anl stopped up the placei
where the dog had come in, and
returned to the house unseen.
Taking up the shot guln, he took
aimil at the dog, and lired. The do,, g
tumbled over howling, u, t lie sooii
got on his feet again, and male for
the hole in the fence. As he ran,
Mr. Whitmarsh left fly the other
I barrel of the gun, but mziissed the T
Sldog Catching up the musket he
waited for the dog to stop, and
then blazed away. He hit the dog,
but !he did not know it, for lie went
spinning off the end of the gallery,
near which he was standing when
lhe fired, falling into a winterhouse
for flowers, which happened to be
convenient, while the musket went
revolving through the dinning
room window, and knocked a water
cooler oil of a stand, breaking the :
faucet offl; and plilling all the ice at
water, (Mr. Whitniarsh made a '
present of the cooler, to the TIMES w
office next day.) g'
The dog while badly hurt, was "
not killed, as Mr. Whitmarsh per- ti
ceived when lie climed out of the d
flowerhouse, and having made up t
his mind to kill the dog. Mr. Whit- n
marsh seized an axe from the wood d
pile, and running up to the dog, t.
struck at him with'it, but, the dog 01
dodged, and the handle of the. axe IV
striking a log lying there, broke off ti
in the centre. Then Mr. Whit- ft
lmarsh got a club, and proceeded to II
beat the dog to death, which he 1i
succeeded in doing, assisted by the g
cook with a hatchet, and reinforced S1
by the hired man with *an ,iron 1
poker. a
Mr. Whitmarsh killed the dog n
he also bought a new window, he d
has no water cooler,. it will take U
half a days work to repair the e
flower house, and he has an old hl
army musket that lie is anxious to t
give away. I
The Age of the Mounds.
r Dr. Cyrus Thomas, who is in "
t charge of the division on mound
exploration of the Bureau of Eth- i
nology, has in the last three years t
Sobtained about 15,(100 specimens of, C
the handiwork of the mound build- -
ers, the study of which, with tile i
e survey of the mounds themnlselves
and their surroundings, is gradual-1
ly leading to a solution of certain
arebleologic riddles which a few
years ago seemed insolvable.
1 While some of the mounds are
doubtless very ancient, others
similar in character and equally
interesting have certainly been
ý built up since the advent of Eu- t
ropeans. A string of sleigh bells
· much corroded but still capable of I
tinkling, was found among the flint
and bone implements in a mound
in Tennessee, while in Mississippi,
at the point where i)e Soto is sup
, posed to have tarried, a SpanishI
e coat of arms in silver, one blade of
y a pair of scissors and other articles
.of Europaan manufacture were
e found in lpositions which indicated
that they were bunriod by the origi
Snal builders of the mounds.
In a Georgia mound two copper
1 plates were fjund, upon which
s were stamped figures resembling
e the sculptures upon the Central
e American ruins. The workman.
ship is vastly superior to that dis
played on the articles of pottery,
Sstone and hone found in the
y mounds, and their origid and pur
r pose are not yet explainable.
'- Aside from these plates nothing
- has been found to indicate a con-'
t nection between the mound build
- ers and the Aztecs or the Pueblos,
g while on the other hand, there ap-i
d pears many reasons for not going
n beyond the Cherokees and their
n fellow red men of the Ohio and
g Mississippi valley to find the origin
Ii of these curious erections.
SThe purpose of the mounds still
n remains in some cases a mystery,
r but in others they are known to
r. have been made sometimes for
bhurial places, and sometimes as
r foundations for Indian villages
:e secure from the floods to which the
e, low lands were periodically sub.!

Adulterated Drugs.
A consultation was held yester
day between lHealth Oflicer Veale
alid l)r. lHenry Lefi'nan, and the
views of Chlemist Charles Bullock
were considered at length. Both
gentlemen expressed great indig
nation at the rumor that the inves
tigation on the adulteration of
drugs was the outcome for a sensa
tion and a desire on their part for
newspaper notoriety. Major Veale
declared that it made no difference
to him what Mr. Bullock or any
one else said, for he felt that hip
was in the right. Had the drug
for this investigation would never
have arisen. "The trouble is lust
herc," he said ; "hundreds of drug
gists make their drugs under the
standard of 1870 instead of tliat of
1880, as they should. This makes
a vast difference, for many of the
most important drugs are a great
deal weaker under the old standard
than under the new, hence the
cost of their production is much
less. Now I don't propose to let
the drug trade impose on the pub
lic if I can help it. The Pharma
coprei, of 188 is the standard
which they all should adopt and
mn object is to compel them to do
so. It is my opinion that a drug
gist who comlpounds a prescription
undc r any other than the standard
of 1884) is liable to criminal prose
cution. The sole object of our
investigation is to compel the
drug trade to live up to the stand
ard of 1SSO."
Dl)r. Leffman said: "We are
doing this work simply because
the drug trade has failed in its duty
to the public. If the Pharmaceut
ical Association would pass a
resolution in conjunction with the
drug trade, agreeing to live up to
_ the standard as laid down in the
Pharmacopmia, it would cover the
whole ground. The variations we
have found in the strength of drugs
examined is due to the fact that no
single standard is followed. A very
few recognize that of 1880-the only
correct one-but the majority fol
low that of 1870." The latest re
sults of the analysis made by Drs.
Leffinan and Cresson show rather
startling results. The eleven sam
m ples of laudanum anal yized vary in
Sstrength from 5.56 per cent of
morphia to 40 per cent. The sam- (
ples of chlorated soda were found
exceedingly weak and far below
the stqndard, some being as low as
1.8 per cent, while the minimum
quantity demanded by the stand
ard is 10 per cent. Out of thirteen
samples of mercurial ointment only
e Ave were found anywhere near the
required standard- Many of the
itwenty-seven samples of tincture
1 of iodine were found to contain
- only one-.qnarter of the required
strength. The examination of
milk showed it great variation in
tthe quality sold, but many of the
g samples were found to be very good.
