Evidently the tltlo deed Is worth
more than the land deeded. A few
days since at Flint, Michigan, a United
States patent, dated April 17, 1837, was
filed for record. It 13 written on sheep
skin, and bears the signature of Presi
dent Van Buren. The value of the
land patented at present is only $150.
As a souvenir of the past the docu

The annual day of humiliation and
prayer ha3 just been observed in
Prussia, according to long established
custom, and a great many of the Ber
lin newspapers took occasion to print
articles upon the recent deteriora
tion in public morality. They assert
ed that the rapid industrial develop
ment of the country and the corre
sponding improvement in its financial
condition had resulted in an alarming
growth of social evils and abuses.
There is a dearth of pet cats in Bos
ton, due to the demand for them at
Harvard for anatomical uses. The col
lege authorities advertised for a thou
sand, and a number of highly prized
Angoras and Persians were "lifted" in
the levy. In a pathetic protest in one
of the Boston papers Helen Winslow
records a student as saying: "Oh, I
had to dissect such a beautiful An
gora today! I just hated to do it; he
was the largest and finest cat I ever
saw. He had been chloroformed, but
he was still warm."

had made her a verbal promise that if

he would give her his note for $1000.
The deed was signed, but Alpheus re
fused to make good the note, insisting
that he and his wife were ope, and
that, therefore, the contract could
not be valid. The appellate court
held that, while this was the old
English rule, it does not held good in
The free employment agencies au
thorized by the state of Illinois have
been in operation in Chicago for about
two years, and their reports answer
some of the questions raised when
the matter was under discussion in
the Legislature. It was doubted
whether these agencies could be
"brought into sympathetic relations
with those seeking work; whether
they would not be used by irresponsi
ble idlers to further criminal schemes,
and whether they would be patronized
by those proficient in the trades
These doubts have been settled. All
classes of workers have taken advaa
tage of the opportunity offered, and
the offices have been patronized by
hotels, restaurants, hospitals, theatrc3,
railroads, by scores of the best busi
ness houses, and by hundreds of fami
lies. A sample report is that of the
South Side office, which shows for the
' year ended with September last, 10,
C81 applications from men and boys
7073 of whom were provided with
employment; and 84D0 applications
from women and girls, for 8401 of
whom places were found. The aver
asre cost of findirfg employment for
each was 31 cents.
Tho ceremony of counting the elec
toral vote for president and vico resi
dent cast at tho election last fall took
place in tho ball of the house of repre
sentatives at 1 o'clock Wednesday at a
joint session of the house and senate
The method of counting the vote ia
prescribed with great detail by tho
statute and was followed literally.
Great crowds thronged the galleries.
At 12:55 o'clock proceedings in the
houso were suspended and five rows of
seats upon the right of the hall were I
vacated for the members of the senate.
At one minute of 1 o'clock the presi
dent pro tern, and members of the sen
ate were announced. The members of
the house rose to receive them, while
page boya carrying the caskets in
which the electoral returns were de
posited, took them to the clerk's desk.
Senator Frye, president pro tera of
the senate, ascended the rostrum and
took his place at the right of Speaker
Henderson to preside over the joint
session. Immediately below Speaker
Henderson aud Senator Frye, at the
clerk's desk, were the tellers of the
two houses, Senators Chandler, of New
Hampshire, and Cuffery, of Louisiua,
and Representatives Grosvenor, of
Ohio, and Ilichardson, of Tennessee,
flanked on either hand by the secre
tary of the senate, Mr. Bennett, and
the clerk of tho house, Mr. McDowell.
Senator Frye rapped for order and an
nounced the object of the session.
Senator Irye said consent alrcaay
had been given to dispense with the
formal reading of the certificates, but
that he thought it might be necessary
o read the certificate of Arkansas,
owing to a slight irregularity. This
showed that one of the electors had
been absent and that the governor had
appointed a substitute. Tho certificate
was not challenged, however, and the
tellers proceeded to announce the
result in each state. A lapsus linguae
by General Grosvenor, when, he an
nounced the Colorado vote, created a
general outburst of merriment. He
announced that Colorado had cast four
votes for William J. Bryan, of Nebras
ka, and four for Theodore Roosevelt,
of New York, for vice president.
"Ob, shouted Mr. Richardson, one
of the Democratic tellers, while the
members of the senate and house on
the floor and spectators in the galla-
ries joined in the laughter which fol
lowed. Mr. Grosvenor corrected the
error and the announcement of the
several states then proceeded in alpha
betical order.
The certificates were not uniform
and the operation of opening the
bulky packages aiid seeking out the
result was attended with many delays.
When Maryland's eight votes were en
nounced for McKinley and Roosevelt
there was a slight ripple of applause
and the samo response was made to
the announcement of Nebraska's vote.
General Grosvenor announced the
vote of the president's own state of
Ohio, but it created no demonstration.
Upon the conclusion of the announce
ment of the vote of WyomiDg, by di
rection of the presiding officer, the
tellers formally ascertained the totals.
Senator Chandler announced the
total number of votes cast as 417, of
which William McKinley, of Ohio, re
ceived for president of the United
States 292; William J. Bryan, of
Nebraska, 155, and of which Theodore
Roosevelt, of New York, received for
vice president 292, and Adlai E;
Stevenson, of Illinois, 155.
Thereupon, in accordance with the
statute, Senator Frye proclaimed the
state of the vote as delivered to him.
"This announcement of the state of
the vote by the president of the sen
ote," laid he, "is by the law, a suffi
cient declaration that William McKin
ley, of the state of Ohio, is elected
president of the United States, and
that Theodore Roosevelt, of the state
of New York, is elected vice president,
each for the term, beginning March 4,
1901, and will be entered together
with a list of the votes on the journals
of the senate and, house of represen
tatives. The count of electoral votes having
been completed and the result declar
ed, the joint meeting of the two houses
is dissolved and the senate will now
return to its chamber."
The joint meeting was then dissolved.
A tremendous outburst of applause
swept over the galleries.

continued to do a flourishing business.
When the crowd swept down upon the

over the joints. The temperance men
and women insisted on inspecting tho
places to see that their orders for

The investigating committee was
followed by a large crowd. Soon an
alarm of fire was sounded Rnd a hose
cart dashed up and the firemen com
menced throwing water on the crowd.
Some men attempted to cut the hose,
but were prevented by a display of re
volvers. After several had been more

and quiet was restored.

Domestic Trucedy Brought to Light
Creceut City, Fla.
At Crescent City, F!a., Saturday
morning, Dr. W. L. McLeod and his
wife were found dead in their resi
dence. The evidence disclosed that
McLeod had killed his wife and then
himself. Neither of the couple had
been seen for a week, when Mrs. Mc
Leod was visiting members of her
church regarding some religious work
The bodies were found in the bed
room, undressed, and two bullet
wound, both mortal, had been inflict
ed on Mrs. DeLeod. Her husband
then fired the third bullet through his
own brain and held the pistol in his
hand. Mrs. McLeod had first been
shot in bed and then on the floor as
she kneeled before him.

I. II. Thomson Advises tlie Use
of Or. Greene's Hem,
Wonderful Body Builder and Strength Re
storer Should Be Used Now. -

No occupation in the world requires more perfect nerve force and physical
r.trenjjth than is demanded of its members by a modern fire department. . .
The members of this branch of the public service must be ready at all hours
of the day or night, and in all degrees of heat, cold or exposure, to answer
the call of the public, and protect life and property. At all times they must
have bodily strength and a clear brain. Without this we would never hear
of the wonderful feats of bravery and rescue performed by them. Nothing in
the world will build up strength, like Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nervo
remedy. Captain Thomson's strong statement, which we publish herewith,
carries weight, and is echoed everywhere by those who rely on Dr. Greene's
Nervura blood and nerve remedy, when disease attacks them, or thoy get
run down in health which is so easy at this season of the year. There is no
medicine in the world which will ward off attacks of the fatal grip, which is
now so prevalent, and there is nothing which will drive It away so quickly
or reinviporate the body as well after the grip, as this famous remedy.
Captain Thomson, whose address is 2106 Lincoln St., North East, Minneapolis,
Minn., says :
" I am a great believer in the wonderful curative powers of Dr.
Greene's Nervura Blood and Nerve Remedy. It has been used in my
house lor years as a body builder, strength restorer and general
family medicine. It never fails to give beneficial results. It
strengthens the nerves and purifies the blood. As a health builder,
I believe there is no medicine equal to Dr. Greene's Nervura Blood
and Nerve Remedy."
Remember that Dr. Greene's Nervura Blood and Nerve Remedy is the pre
scription of a regular physician, Dr. Greene, who can be consulted absolutely
free of charge either by mail or calling at his office, 35 W. 14th St., New York
City. Consultation is absolutely free of charge. If you cannot call upon him
at his office, write him a letter, telling all about your case, and you can bo
treated just as well at home as if you called in person. Remember his advice
is absolutely free.
