The GeWiard-Hunter Squabble.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Xf.w YoKK.Feb. 24—The Gebhard-Hunter
wrangle has at last taken a definite shape. It
has been withdrawn from the jurisdiction of
the Jockey club, before which it had no busi
ness to be brought at all, being substantially
a private money transaction, bearing but an
incidental relation to racing or betting con
tracts between two members of the club.
The case has been submitted to arbitrators.
The gossip in sporting circles is that Hunter
has possession of telegrams and letters
which make his case stronger
tUan at first anticipated. The
amount involved is said to be
about §10,000, and friends of both say the
dispute would never have occurred had the
young men not been a little hard up -just
now. One of the oldest sportsmen remarked
the other day: "Hunter was never a rich
man, but Freddy was always well off and as
it is well known that he neither gambles nor
speculates, everybody wonders what he has
done with his money, unless he gave it
The Validity of Slave Marriages.
Toledo, O., Feb. 24.—A peculiar case has
been decided in the common pleas court, in
volving the validity of slave marriages. A
colored man, married here in 1S83, named
Anderson, but was arrested for bigamy, it
being charged that he was married while a
slave to a slave woman in Belford county,
Ya.. in 1866. The case has hinged on the
validity of the slave marriage. The judge
instructed the jury, that slaves, being prop
erty, could not make . a legal contract, but
that courts have decided that a slave marri
age became valid by cohabitation as man
and wife after the emanc ipation proclama
tion went into effect in 1864. The case then
turned on the question of the fact, whether
the pair had so cohabited, or not, as shown
by the evidence. The jury rendered a ver
dict of not guilty. ■ .
A Mormon editor was proselytizing in In
diana and a plot was formed to seize him
while he was addressing a public meeting,
take him to a seccluded spot and maltreat
him with tar and feathers. Being informed
of his peril in advance, he did not run away,
but boldly appeared according to appoint
ment, preached Mormonism in the most el
oquent manner, and by his oratory so im
impressed the eonspirators that they gave up
the intention of mobbing him.

An old-time clergyman was a very shrewd
man, and quick at rapartee. Once, when
preaching in a strange church, he was an

A Family of Five Stricken With the
Dread Disease.
At Least Two Members are Dangerously
The Disease Defined in a Comprehensive
On Friday Dr. Koehl, of 113 Nicollet av
enue, Was called to the residence of A.
Voelker, No. 518 Adams street, on the East
side, where he found the family consisting of
five members, stricken by some peculiar dis
ease, the symptoms of which were of an ex
traordinary character. After making a most
careful and competent diagnosis of the re
spective cases. Dr. Koehl determined that
the family were stricken with the dread
trichinosis, and at once began treatment for
that disease. Hapily he made no error in
his conclusions, as subsequent investigations
established the fact that it was absolutely
trichinosis. The family had partaken
of ham which looked exception ally
good and was considered the best in the mar
ket. Dr. Koehl took a piece of the meat in
question and assisted by Dr. J. T. Moore, of
No. 31 South Washington avenue, who pos
sesses probably the finest and most powerful
microscope in Minneapolis, placed the ham
under it, where trichinae in great numbers
were discovered.
The father was first afflicted with the para
site; he was followed by the eldest son, John
ny, about sixteen years of age; then Minnie
ten years old, became seriously ill, and is
still in a critical condition ; a little girl of six
years is also very sick, while the mother is
affected but not dangerously.
There were others who also ate the meat
inhabited by trichirne, being visitors at Mr.
Voelker's house, and Dr. Koehl has sent to
them lo inquire their condition.
Mr. Voelker is a well-to-do miller, who lives
in a comfortable home, and is the head of
an especially bright, inteligent and beautiful
family of children. So it is seen that trich
inosis does not afflict only the poorer classes,
as it has been alleged, but that it is develop
ed In the better families.
The peculiar disease, which is attracting
such general attention, both of
our physicians and citizens ta
pretty clearly defined and
described in the following:
Henry Hartshorne, M. D., in an exhaustive
article upon Trichinae says: This parasite be
longs with the round or thread-like nematoid
worms. It was discovered by Tiedemann in
L822, and independently by Hilton in 1S32.
Owen in 1835 discovered and classified it.
Leuckurt ascertained its character in the
mature condition. * * * When mature
the male is 1-18 of an inch long; the female
of at least twice this length. The eggs are
about 1-200 of an inch in diameter. Each
female contains from three to five hundred
ova. These after fertilization and six or eight
days of gestation arc developed in embryos;
which, when extruded within the intestines of
an animal, commence at once their migra
tions. Finding their way through the intes
tinal walls, they travel on until they locate
themselves in or between the fibers of some
of the muscles. There they coil into a
spiral form and become gradually surrounded
by a calcareous cyst. This has an ovoid
or lemon like shape and is visible
to the naked eye as a whitish
or gray speck. The muscular fibers of the
part so inhabited undergo degeneration. In
the dissecting room such altered muscles
have not infrequently been observed in this
country, as well as in Europe. The muscles
mostly affected are differently stated by va
rious authors, but any or all of the red
striated muscles may be involved. * * * *
The hog is especially liable to trichind, but
it has been found also in the ox, horse, sheep,
dog, cat, badger, hedgehog, mole, pigeon and
eel. Experimentally, by feeding in
fected meat, it has been communis
bated to the bat, mouse, rabbit, guinea
pig and other creatures. Sometimes death
follows this infectation, but it is astonishing
how little disturbance of health occurs in a
large number of instances. Stiffness of
movement aud hoarseness of voice, in a cer
tain number of cases, show the affection in
swine. Much more often, however, they ap
pear to be, during life, in as good a condition
as active animals not so inhabited. The
number of the parasites in the muscles of an
animal may be immense. As many
as 10,000 to 18,000 have been found
in a cubic inch of hog's flesh.
Prof. Dalton estimated the number of them
in a human subject at 85,000 to the cubic
inch. From 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 may ex
ist in a single human body, according to ex
aminations made in several cases.
It was not until 1S60 that the morbid ef
fects of this parasite when inhabiting the
body of man, were distinctly recognized.
Zenker then found trichime in ham and sau
sages eaten by those effected by them.
Wunderlich saw two cases in
Leipsic in 1863. Several persons
died from this cause the same year in Plauen,
Saxony. In 1863 occurred the most startling
example of it in Hettstadt, Prussia. Of 103
persons there dining together on a festive
occasion, twenty died and thirty others were
for some time ill. A part of their
dinner consisted of sausages, smoked and
warmed, but not cooked. Some of tbe saus
ages left were examined and found swarming
with trichinie. * * * The first case
of trichinosis recorded in America was seen
by Dr. Schnetter, of New York, in 1864.
Near the same tyne, Dr. Bass of the same
city, saw four persons so affected on a
steamer from Bremen. Afterward cases
were reported by Drs. Lothrop, of Buffalo,
Wilson and Riestine, of Marion, Iowa, and
In Chicago in 1865-6 a committee of physi
cians on examining more than 1,000 hogs
from different packing establishments, re
ported that one in fifty of those animals re
ceived at Chicago were trichinous. * * * Hav
ing fed a rat with trichinous pork, Dr. Bel
field ate a portion of the rat's flesh,
which had been ascertained by the micro
scope to contain twelve trichinse. At the end
of more than a month, he had suffered no
inconvenience. This confirms what has of
ten been established by many other observa
tions, that a few trichinae may, even in man,
be harmless inhabitants of the body, while if
they number, as is often the case, hundreds
of thousands, disease and frequently death
will result.
In the first stages, general discomfort,
weakness, indigestion, vomiting, and loose
ness of the bowels, show that some cause of
serious gastro-enteric irritation exists. This
stage lasts usually about a week; then fever
supervenes, not disappearing under free
perspirations, pufliness of the face, hoarse
ness, sometimes marked dyspcea, difficulty
in swallowing, pain on moving the eyeballs,
tenderness of the abdomen, more or
less diarrhoea, and most character
istic of all—pain and rigidity of the muscles
of the neck, back, arms and* lee:s. Exhaus
tion follows and insomnia; in some cases
deliriums, with scantiness and high color of
the urine. Intercurrent pneumonia is not
rare. Death may happen from three to six
weeks, but seldom after.
It has been shown that a temperature of
122 degrees Fahr. will destroy the
vitality of trichina?. Fielder asserts
that eneapsuled trichinae require
a heat approaching 150 to 160 degrees, to kill
them. Never, however, will they survive
through cooking, of the flesh in which they
exist, either free or in the cysts. It is not
enough to cook them slightly. Nor will cold
smoking, even when protracted, be sure to
destroy them. Hot smoking, thoroughly
done, may suffice, but it is best not to trust
to it.
Practically, then, our precept must he, that
no pork, ham or sausage should be eaten
without it has been thoroughly cooked,
through and through. Provision dealers and
butchers and sanitary authorities also, owe it
to the public as well as to themselves, to or
ganize and insist upon more competent in
spection and selection of animals to be
Dr. Kohl visited the family of Conrad
Voelker, stricken by trichinosis, and found
the five mentioned lying very low. Mrs.
Voelker's sister, a young girl aged about
eighteen years, is also in a critical condition.
The temperature of each patient is rising and
the doctor last night was unable to offer any
opinion respecting the probable results.

Bad Lands Cow Boy: Game has had a hard
time of it this winter. So many buffalo
hunters were thrown out of employment by
the absence of their favorite game, that they
had to kill deer, elk and mountain sheep or
give up hunting. The Sioux have held the
buffalo down on the reservation closely but it
seems thht one bull was unwilling to die
there. He strayed toward Little Missouri
and was shot within twenty rods of the Custer
Trail home ranch.
Rev. Father Stephan reached home at
Jamestown from Washington on the 22d.
He reports that Col. Doran stands high with
the administration and that he will stand a
good chance to be appointed governor, if he
really wants it. The reverend father had
personal interviews with the president and
many of the leading senators and congress
men. It is thought that the Harrison bill,
for the admission of south Dackota, after the
presidential election, is the most hopeful of
all the Dakota bills.
This is an improved version of the story
told by the Devil's Lake Inter-Ocean: John
A. Logan's candidacy for the presidency is
bringing out a great many things concern
ing his political career in Illinois. The lat
est compaign scandal is to the effect that
while running for office in the Sucker state
some years ago he found it necessary to join
two churches in the southern part of the
state at the same time. He was in Chicago
and there was no time to lose; so he joined
the Methodist church by telegraph and sent
his photograph to the Baptist' brethren with
the request that it be baptised ai once.
Through the efforts and seductive aroma

Bad Lands Cow Boy: A man stopped off
here on his way back to Michigan from the
Cceur d'Alene mines yesterday morning, and
his account was anything but rosy. He was
utterly disgusted with#the mines, claiming
that it was a huge swindle. There is very
little gold in paying quantities, he claims",
and the whole plan is a gigantic speculation
for the purpose of gulling people out of their
money. That it will be a success there is
not much doubt. The excitement is at fever
heat everywhere, and thousands will hurry
into the mines in the spring and will soon
not have money enough to hire a mule to
kick them out.
Major Free, who has just mustered in a post
of the G. A. R. at Fargo, in an interview,
says that the sudden activity in the order is
not due to the presidential aspirations of any
man—that the order is strictly non-political,
but the members will naturally give the
preference to one of their number for presi
dent. They are specially friendly to Logan
from the fact that he has shown great inter
est in the order, and is in favor of all bills
that increase the pension lists. He regards
these posts and the publicity given the
n»mes and fact of so large a soldier popula
tion as the finest advertisement possible for
the localities where the posts are established.
In his opinion the new post at Fargo will be
the means of bringing at leat 3.000 soldiers
to this section. There are about fifty posts
n ow in the territory and the number is grow
ing rapidly.
As both sides on the capital commission
question have been so confident that they
have got their man in Judge Palmer, this
statement of an interview with him by the
Yankton Press is of interest: The judge
was spoken to .regarding the numerous news
paper comments concerning his position
on the capital question. In reply he au
thorized the statement that he had never
given an oral or written expression of opin
ion on the constitutionality of the capital
commission act; that he had never read the
bill and had listened to none of the argu
ments in the case. He said he owed no man
or set of men any favor for political support,
and though individuals might have
endorsed him for the appointment, such en
dorsement placed him under no obligations.
He is much annoyed at the general newspa
per discussion going on over him, and says
it is entirely uncalled for. The judge has not
yet decided where he will reside in the dis
trict to which he ha3 been appointed. As he
has just filed a homestead claim at ©evib
Lake, the last statement is a little surprising.
It cannot be supposed that he will attempt
any of the equivocations sometimes attribu
ted to the unscrupulous.
The Broadaxe, the new evening paper in

and staff wanted to be pictured in it, and
there was crowding for position, with the re
sult that none of them will appear. It is
known that the paper will come to the pub

The excellent and prosperous Jamestown
Capital has just entered upon its third year
and is one of the most readable of the Da
kota dailies. It has this sensible paragraph:
A false and foolish alarm was telegraphed
from LaMoure to the Minneapolis papers,
and thence sent all over the country, to the
effect that several stages had been lost in
Monday nighfs storm. Some of the stages
on the valley line were caught out in the
storm, but the drivers had sense enough to
wait at the nearest houses until it was blown
over, which was but a few hours. Because
they did not reach LaMoure on time the
crank who gives the news of that part of the
country to the world telegraphed that they
were lost. If the drivers had had as little
sense as the news man who gave currency
to the report, they would have been lost. The
fact is, the men who drive on the valley line
ar.- old stagers and know too much to be lost
in a squall like that of Monday night.
A night or two ago, when quite a little
crowd of Bismarck people were in Fargo, a
somewhat cruel joke was played upon a
noted and wealthy, but amorous capitalist of
Bismarck. The aged and wealthy Bismarck
er was mashed on a pretty waiter girl at one
of the leading hotels. He cast sheep's eyes
aud soft glances, and finally handed her a
$10 bill, requesting her to call at his room at
night. She took the money and told a boy.
The boy told the other Bismarckers and they
employed the boy to dress in the girl's
clothes and visit the old fellow. A note was
sent him as if from the girl, telling him to
retire at a certain time and leave bis door
unlocked and the light turned very low. The
programme was carried out to perfection aud
after the lapse of quite a time the waiting
crowd were treated to the sight of the old
gent in dishabille, kicking a boy, in equal
dishabille, out of the room. The next scene
was at the hotel bar, where Bismarck was
largely represented, and more than $10 was
passed over the counter,, with pledges of re
ticence, "Don't let it out at Bismarck,
Delegate Raymond has furnished this state
ment from his ledger in regard to the bonan
za farm in which he has an interest: "Be
fore we received a return from our crop we
invested$55,000. That includes' the pur
chase of our land, the erection of five barns,
a dwelling house, an elevator capable of hold
ing 100,000 bushels of wheat and oats, all
the stock and machinery to run the farm,
and all the cost of breaking the laud, plant
ing aud reaping the crop and delivering it at
the market. We had 2,000 acres in wh^at,
and enough oats to keep our stock. We got
about twenty-live bushels to the acre, which
would be 50,000 bushels from the entire
plaee. We shall save out our seed wheat for
next year and can then sell the crop for
about $50,000." That is a return of about 90
per cent, upon the investment, or a dividend
of 45 per cent, a year, for the farm lay idle
the first twelve months after its purchase.
To the question, "Do you consider it an ad
vantage to own your own stock and do your
own work'" Mr. Raymond replies: "There
are as many ways of farming as there are of
going to heaven, and you will find every
farmer likes his own method best. I con
sider it 25 per cent, cheaper to own my ma
chinery and stock, and believe it is more
economical to borrow money to buy stock
and machinery than to hire the work done."

am rector of the church, my mother-in-law
is director, and my wife is corrector."

Gladstone and the Boston Girl
[American Queen.]
A Boston girl of unusually ingenious man
ners and frank nature has, we learn from
the other side, added to the already hand
some list of natural possessions and graces
strong evidences of diplomacy. A party of
tourists, our sweet Portia among them, en
tered one morning the private grounds of
Mr. Gladstone, craving, of course, the good
fortune of seeing the great statesman. For
tune smiled on their wishes; the coachman
espied the gentleman approaching and so
obligingly and ostentatiously stopped his
horses that there was no alternative, had he
indeed wished any, to the host's advancing
and greeting his visitors.
"Have you been long in England?" he in
quired graciously.
"Oh, no," 6aid that darling B. G., "we
only landed this morning, and we came
right here the first thing."
Now who, I ask, could withstand such flat
tery as that? Surely not a man, and cer
tainly not Mr. Gladstone. He kindly forgot
that there were only two possible drives out
of Liverpool; one a very long one and this
short one; he remembered only the Boston
girl and her artlessness, and nothing that he
or his wife or his household could offer was
too good or too distinctive to lay at her feet.
The expression used by Mrs. Florence of
"yursanchurs ago" is an exact adaptation
from the address of an English bishop, whom
the Florences heard talk to a Sunday school
when they were last in Fngland. The bishop's
address ran on in this fashion: "My dear
children,it has been your custom for 'yursan
churs' to meet here in this place. I have
watched your progress for 'yursanchurs,' you
know. We are going to talk this morning
about the prodigal son. He lived many 'yurs
anchurs' ago. I want to call your attention
to the loving picture of his return after an
absence of 'yursanchurs.' His father killed
for him the fatted calf which he had been fat
ting for 'yursanchurs,' " etc. Mrs. Florence
captured this favorite phrase of the bishop's
and has since used it with great effect.
Within a nest of rose*.
Half hidden from sight,
Until a smile discloses
Its loveliness aright,
Behold the work of Cnpid,
Who wrought it in a freak,
The witching little dimple—
The dimple on her cheek!
The Sirens' lays and slances
To lure the sailor ni^'h ;
The perilous romances
Of fabled Lorelei,
And all the spells of Circe
Are reft of oharm and weak,
Beside the dainty dimple—
The dimple on her cheek!
Were these the golden ages
Or knights and troubadours,
Who brighten olden pages
With tourneys and amours.
What lances would be broken—
What silver lutes would speak,
In honor of the dimple—
The dimple on her check !
— Samuel Minturn Peck in t/a- Manhattan.
Joseph Cooke in one of his late lectures
in Fremont Temple paid a glowing tribute
to the late Wendell Phillips. ''Boston,''said
Mr. Cooke "mobbed Wendell Phillips; let the
city now honorably, gladly, penitently, build
his monument." Lord Mansfield in a speech
of unsurpassed eloquence delivered
in the British House of Peers over a ceutury
ago said, ''many who have been saluted with
huzzas of the crowd one day have received
their execrations the next," and it may be
said with equal point and force that those who
received the execrations of the crowd one day
may be made the objects of unlimit
ed applause the next. "Wendell
Phillips fully illustrates this. Fifty years
ago, the object of popular condemnation and
persecution; to-day, honored, applauded, glo
rified fur his persistent and powerful labors
in behalf of the great rights of man and of
humanity. A corrected public sentiment
bestows an apotheosis upon the consistent,
able and eloquent champion of rights once
unpopular but no\V admitted to be sacred.
Whatever may be said or thought of the
allege! "fraud" which landed Rutherford
Bircbard Hayes into the Presidency, he
seems to be spending his retirement from
public life with dignity and grace and is
using a portion of his wealth in a beneficent
manner for the public good. The following
is what Col. Mahlon Chance of Ohio' says of
Ex-President Hayes: "He inherited *?*200,UOO
or §300,000 from his uncle, Mr. Bircbard,
besides having saved considerable during his
administration. He is a careful, prudent
business man and devotes the principal por
tion of his time to the management of the
John F. Slater fund for the cause of educa
tion in the South. He is also interested in
the promotion of tree planting on the high
ways, and is the patron of all historical and
agricultural matters. The Methodists of
Fremont are at present erecting a church
at a cost of SI8,000; Mr. Hayes contributes
one-fourth of the sum. He takes no part in
pulitics, refuses to be interviewed, and at
tends strictly to his own business."
It is pleasing to note thut women are tak
ing rank in high literary and editorial po.sir
tions, as well as in other fields of intellectual
activity, Large numbers are thus
leaving the realms of more
monotonous, unlntelleetual drudgery. To see
women competing with men for positions in
the higher walks of cultivated activity is pe
culiarly gratifying, and their success is an
incentive to others to go and do likewise.
The "Hub" illustrates the capacity and capa
bility of women for high culture and intellect
ual employment. A Boston correspondent
writes: "I doubt, if there is another city in
which women have entered journalism in as
large numbers as they have here. There is
not a daily in the city and not a weekly of
any importance that has not at least one
woman and in several cases two or three
women on tlie staff as reporters, editorial
writers, critics or special writers."
Rugby, Morgan county, Tennessee, is a
comparatively new town, yet, for its healthi
ness and the salubrity of the climate must
have many attractions. It is 1,400 feet
above the level of the sea on the Cumberland
plateau. It is 221 miles directly south from
Cincinnati, and 114 miles north of Chatta
nooga. The mean temperature in summer
is 72 degrees, and in winter 37 degrees.
Water is abundant; the soil is good for gen
eral purposes, but is especially adapted to
fruits and vegetables. Sweet potatoes yield
300 bushels to the acre, Irish potatoes 250,
and onions about 500, and so on. Consump
tion is never known on the plateau. This
place in the future is no doubt destined to be
a considerable resort, both in Bummer and
winter for health seekers, where expenses
are not burdensome.
In appealing to his congregation on a re
cent Sabbath Father Clark of Baltimore said:
"I remember a short time ago a collection
was taken up for the benefit of the altar in a
prominent Catholic church in Washington
and in the boxes were found besides about
$600 in money and a number of gold orna
ments a diamond cross and a pair of valua
ble bracelets belonging to the wife of a United
States senator. The next day the lady called
at the church and redeemed her pledges with
a$100 note." Thus the virtuous, cultivated
and pious of the sex, are ready for every
"good word and work," and deem no self
denial or personal sacrifice too great to ad
vance the interests or welfare of our common
The too prevalent vicious hurtful and de
structive "cramming" system in vogue in
our public schools is sadly iilustrited in the
following: A sad case of over-study is re
ported in the Boston schools. A girl of thir
teen years of age died last week of brain fe
ver, during the delirium of which, her father
reports, she recited page after page of history,
and struggled with the notes of music, pa
thetically crying to her other parent: "O,
mother, if I could only get these notes out
of my head," The father returns to the city
register, in his certificate of death: "Due to
the Boston school system of cramming."
The London Graphic says the Island of
Cyprus has yielded a rich harvest to arch
aeologists of late. The Cesnola collection of
antiquities was an earnest of the treasures
awaiting further laborers" in the same field;
and within the last eighteen months two dis
tinct series of excavations have been carried
on by England, producing valuable fruit.

sington museum, and Herr Max Richter was

The London correspondent of the Dublin
Freeman's Journal says: "I learn on good
authority that the will of Mrs. Stapleton
Bretherton, who recently bequeathed a sum
of £400,000 to the Pope, is likely to become
