"After using a few bottles of Kodoi Dyspepsia Cure my wife received per fect ard permanent jrelief from a severe PRESERVATION OF THE DEAD. Kew Embalming ProcessWFicfi Seems to Solve the Emblem. An interesting iemonetration is now being given atjthe examination hall of the Royal college of surgeons of a wonderful machine invented by a Belgian doctor for preserving the dead against the natural law of decay, says the London Telegraph. Ilis ap paratus effects a subtle chemical change in the tissues of the dead body, which makes it impervious to decom position. What the change is even scientists cannot exactly say. They know enough, however, to assert that it delayed almost indefinitely the dis solution into dust and ashes. This is the latest as it will be the most useful development in the ancient art of em lial m.iniT - n Its method is more wonderful than any yet discovered, because no im pious hand need touch the dead. In the more material'sense, nothing is done to the body by handiwork; it is simply subjected to air heavily charged with the pungent chemical known as formaline. This air pene trates the whole body, and, in the course of time, makes the tissues in soluble and the stomach and other organs sterile. Thus decay is arrest ed without visceration. In a word, the dead are given a new life. Proof of it can be seen to-day in. Brussels. There in the public mor tuary are confined dead bodies changed by formaline into something which resists natural decay. Con stant exposure to the air, which but for experimental purposes could have been avoided, has had but one result. It has changed the skin from the pallor of death info a slightly brown color through desiccation. One of these machines is now in London for demonstration before the lioyal col lege of surgeons. All the leading pathologists in London have investi gated the new system, and it is under stood that they are satisfied that the great problem of preserving the dead has been entirely overcome.. NEW YORK POLITICIAN. ■ Telling the Ignorant in Arkansas How to Vote. Norman E. Muck, is the name of a distinguished looking gentleman who hails from the city of Buffalo, New York, and he is spending; his time in Arkansas.during the closing days of the Ciarke-Jones campaign. Ho is manifesting much interest in the political affairs of the state, taking'a leading hand in the sena torial fight. Intact, he broke loose at Hot Springs yesterday and he is fairly “plowing” up the earth for James K. Jones. He talks loud and siroDg and his earnest appeals in be half of the cotton bale senator [are almost pathetic. He [cams all the way from Buffalo and is actually a real, live New York politician, and he swears by the sun-beams that the American Cotton Company is not a trust, and his magic words silences protest. The Hot Springs News Record in its comment upon the visit of the great riugster, says in part: “The kindness of of Mr. Norman E. Mack in journeying* alb.the way from Buffalo N.

The young woman was locked in one of the cells and the two locked doors leading to the apartment were found open at 10:30 o’clock last night and the occupant gone. The pa l locks were found on the floor of the prison and the natural conclusion is that keys were used in releasing them from their place as ikey tear 10 marks indicating that they were otherwise tampered with, but bjt whom the officers do not know. T ie locks being of old style many keys could perhaps be found that would operate them. The officers, it is said, have the young woman located and will .have her brought back tonight, and an effort will be made to ascertain the source of her release fr in the eala b >ose. iom; cauiu u l • > i a •/uum likju.i uai u well aoou' a week ago.
