The Visible Supply.
On the 2Gth the Globe Chicago corresporulen
wired to this paper "the visible supply" as com
puted by the secretary of the Chicago board o
trade. Yesterday the regular Associated Pres
telegram came to hand giving the visible suppl;
as compiled by the New York statisticians, whicj
is published in this issue. Comparison of thj
two tables discloses a difference in whea
of 3,318,200 bushels, the Chicago report exceed
ing the New York by that number of bushels
. 708,197 bnshels of corn, 473,367 bushels of oat
and 181,725 bushels of barley less, and 2,94
-. bushelf of rye more are given in the Chicago re
port. Now, the question arises, which is th<
more accurate report, and still another questioi
as to how much reliance can be placei
upon the reports anyway'/
The difference between these'two doctors of fig
ures is too great to be passed over without expla
nation, being for corn, 6 per cent., oats, 9% pc
cent., barley, 9 per cent., and wheat 10 per cent
The difference upon the rye stock is trifling, beini
only 1-9 per cent. Last week in commenting upoi
the- visible supply in these columns it was showi
that in the Chicago report St. Paul and the con
tributory district showing some 2,132,300 bushel
1 were left out. St. Paul district this week wouli
i foot up at least 3,000,000 bushels, leaving stil
some 300,000 bushels between the reports. Seem;
that the Chicago report includes the St. Pau
■ district this week, and is therefore at least 3,000,
: 000 bushels nearer correct than New York, th
Globe endorses the Chicago figures. Followin.
! are the two reports:

AFTER DINNER.
Persons who suffer from Indigestion
can arrest the progress of that painful
malady by the use of an after-dinner
pill, so composed that it will give tone
to the stomach, prevent heartburn, rouse
the liver to healthful action, invigorate
the kitlneys,and thus, through the activity
of these organs, promote the natural
movement of the stomach and bowels.
Ayer's Pills are so compounded that
their action, though mild, effectually pro
duces the above "results. They afso, in
curing Constipation, remove the cause of
Biliousness, Liver Complaint. Kidney Dis
ease. Rheumatism, and many other serious
ailments.
AVER'S PILLS
contain no mineral nor poisonous sub*
stance, and do not gripe unless the
bowels are irritated, and even then their
influence is healing. To continue their
effect in constipatetTor chronic cases, they
need only be taken in diminishing instead
of increasing doses. For seamen, and in
habitants or travelers in sparsely settled
countries where physicians are not at
band, they are of" inestimable value.
There is hardly a sickness they will not
alleviate, and in most cases cure, if taken
promptly. To young girls just entering
upon womanhood, and"to women whose
period of maternity is drawing to a close,
Ayer's Pills, in moderate doses, merely
sufficient to ensure regular action of the
bowels, will be found of
Incalculable Value.

Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co., Lowell, Mass.

SALMI MORSE.
The Developments at the Inquest Over
His Remains.
New Yov.k. Feb, 28. —The inquest on the
case of Salmi Morse was continued to-day.
Mary Blackburn testified, that MeGivney had
asked her to be bis wife, but she refused.
Morse knew this, and MeGivney also knew
that Morse was a suitor of hers. She had of
ten heard Morse say be wished be was dead.
Thomas MeGivney testified, that be had
known Morse and Mary Blackburn three
months: bad been on friendly terms with
them until within a week, when they had a
difficulty about theatrical matters. He ac
knowled going to Mary Blackburn's on the
i night before the death of Morse. He found
Morse and Miss Blackburn there in a ques
tionable position. Morse immediately left
the room. I never struck him in my life. I
remained a few minutes talking with Mis-
Blackburn, then went to my lodging; house
and stopped there until 0 o'clock on Friday
morning, when I returned to Misa Black
' burn's. She admitted me. I wanted to see
her on theatrical business, but did not men-
: _ tion Morse.
MeGivney later corrected his testimony by
¥ saying the janitress bad a light, and the room
t was not dark, as lie at first stated. He said
. be called the attention of the janitress to the
: positions of Miss Blackburn and Morse, say
-5 ing to her: "Mary, I want you as a witness
1 to this scene." The janitress beard him cal!
" Mr. Morse an old rascal. After bis secont
! call on Miss Blackburn he went to Harlem.
1 It was after G o'clock. He had no unpleas
antness with Miss Blackburn the evening o:
• the 21st inst., beyond a few words in refer
- ence to the mortgage which his lawyer want
r ed to jet on the stage properties. The law
• yer said he could get £1,000 on them. Mis
' Blackburn told him he had no right to any
thing there, because everything had beei
1 purchased in her name, and he answered he:
" to the effect that the question would have tc
1 be tested before any money could be raisec
1 on the property.
