The sensational and apparently de liberate suicide of George Westenber ger iu this city on Thursday last has had the effect of evoking considerable comment and argument upon the never-to-be settled question as to the state of the mind which prompts sui cide. Iu speaking to a Bazoo reporter a prominent physician ofSedalin, who does not wish his name to appear in print said: "I wonder if there 13 any country in the world where suicide is accom plished with the same calm resolution that it is in France, and also in such eccentric ways and for such odd rea sons. For instance, I have heard lately of a man who killed himself be cause he had stolen a pair of sucks, and was oppressed by remorse for the theft. Oue would imagine that a more practicle way of proving his re pentance would have been fcr him to have saved up his earnings to pay for the purloined articles. In another instauce a man hung himself because one of his comrades owed him ten cents and would not pay him, and he was in consequence tired of life. Not long ago a husband and wife, finding themselves in the last stages of con sumption, and perceiving that their four children were all threatened with the same malady, hired a horse and carriage, the mother and children oc cupying the vehicle while the hus band drove. He made straight for a deep and rapid river near his home and drove the horses headlong into it, so that the whole party were drowned. The unhappy parents left behind them a declaration which both had signed, setting ferth the reasons which had impelled them to the desperate deed. "What are tbe most popular waya of committing suicide, doctor ?" "The water divides with the rope and the asphyxiating fumes of char coal tbe honors of popularity as a means of getting out of the world. These are not so numerous or as easy to obtain in Eranee as they are iu England or America. No apothecary can sell a poisonous preparation of any kind except through the medium of a physician's formal and signed prescription. Laudanum, morphine and chloroform are not to be obtained by the casual purchaser any more easily than are strychnine or arsenic. The only poisons within the reach of the would-be suicide are such as can be prepared at home, such as phos phorus, which is obtained by steep ing the heads of matches in water, j and verdigris, made from copper coins by covering them with vinegar and letting them stand for some days. But both these poisons are slow in action and extremely painful in their effects, especially phosphorus, which causes death by inflaming the coats of the stomach and the intestines. The trouble about a suicide by charcoal lies in the fact that it is a difficult matter to make a room perfectly air tight, so as to render the i limes effec tual, and there is also the danger of the odor being noticed from without und help being rendered to the in tended victim before the death-dealing process is completed. It is, how ever, a painless fate. The self-slayer sinksintoa sound sleep, which deepens into insensibility, and from thence passes into death. But of late this once favorite mode of suicide has been neglected in favor of hanging or of drowning," "During what seasons of the year are suicides most common V" "It would naturally be suprosed that the gloomy mouths of winter, with their cold, gray weather and short days, would be those iu which v chappy people uould the most readi ly quit the earth. Such is not the case. December is the month iu which suici'Jes are less frequent, and July is that which furnishes the great est number. Can it be that the bus tle'and gayety of the weeks imme diately preceding the holiday season produce a favorable effect on the minds of those who are weighed down by cares and woes that are rapidly as suming intolerable proportions ? Per haps, too, the possibility of some aiflelioratien arriving to the doleful lot of the sufferer, through the med ium of that time of gifts and generos ity, may cause a postponement of the fatal hour. But why should mid summer, with its bright sunshine, and its comparatively easy conditions of existence, when neither extra cloth ing or fuel are necessaries of life, be the season most cond jc:ve to self-murder? That problem presents no reas orable means of solution. Yet near- CENTRAL Open to Ladies and CSrexixloixioia The above cut represents the students at work in Study hall of the above institution.

It is j possible that the calmly flawing river, warmed and brightened by the sum mer sun, may tempt the wretched wanderer to seek for rest and peace in the cold, tranquil depths; while, on the other hand, the icy, muddy tor rent of winter is repellant." "Wb&t are the most prominent causes of suicide?" "As to the causes of suicide, insan ity, whether incipient or declared, furnishes the largest contingent. Im patience of physical pain, the suffer ing caused by agonizing and incurable iliness, comes next. Drunkenness also supplies a great number of cases. But poverty and disappointed love comes lowest on the list of predispos ing causes." DICK 3IUST DANCE. Bluffer Dick Werdeman, of Se dalia, in the Toils of the Law. The Clinton Advocate of Friday contains the following choice morceaux concerning a former resident of this city : "Deputy Sheriff Bennett aud Mar shal Richardson returned from Kan sas City this afternoon, bringing with them Richard Werdeman, against whom there are about ten "true bills" returned by the last grand jury, charg ing him with selling liquor without license, jlmck was piacen in jan ami will have to await the regular term of circuit court for trial. Several weeks ago Dick was arrest ed Sedalia and taken to Windsor, Henry couuty, where he was fined $75 for selling whiskey without license. The Bazoo published the fact and a day or two thereafter Werdeman came into the office to see the reporter who wrote the article. The reporter was in the office. The last seen of Mr. Werdeman he was going sou by sou - ease at tne rate or seven mues an nour. Mr. Werdeman would make an excel moonshiner iu Georgia and a splendid claim jumper in Oklahoma. Mr. Werdeman's forte lies in making money by violating law. He is in jail now and that is where he belongs. . . . c '1 l Wm. Boberls, M.

A considerable number of dropsy. One fifth from secondary pneumonia, peri carditis (inflammation of the heart sac), or pleurisy, exhaustion, indiges tion, or the complications of apoplexy, burdening of the liver, bowel ulcere, etc.1' The foregoing are only a few of the common symptoms of advanced kidney disease, and this explains why Warnei's Safe Cure cures so many different svmntoms. called diseases. and why it has such popularity.

The petition claims that the defen dants entered the house in which the plaintiffs, Clara and Elizabeth Hess lived on the 8th day of March 18S7 and violently laid hands upon them and did beat and abuse them, whereby they ask judg ment in the sum of 83,000 each.

EARLY AMERICANS. Simplicity in their mode of living was the marked characteristic of the early settlers of America. Every thing which pertained to them was plain and unostentatious. The food which they ate was frugal ly served and of the substantial kind. mi i . i f,Their cl1 home-spun and the moccasins whicn covered their feet were a home product being maue from the hides of animals and orna mented wilh beads after the Indian fashion. Their homes were simplicity itself, consisting of roughly hewn logs and home made shingles the whole con stituting the old Log-Cabin home of frontier life. Yet those were model homes. The wives and mothers were well versed in the art of all that pertained to housewifery. Conspicuous in the ear! home was the striking figure ot the old grand mother. Not only was she the adviser in so ciai affairs but she was.the medical ad viser and prescriber for the sick. Of ten were her hands engaged in the preparation of some healing potion or remedy for the relief of those in iil health. Fully yersed in all the bounti ful supplies contained in the grand oll storehouse of .Mature, she wisely knew how to utilize the curative properties coutaiued in certained in certain roots and herbs and accordingly she trans-r-mA ! r., j. - . j: i i viiii ri 11 iriririu rni oil lima nnTYi a Cabin famous for all time to come. Conscious of the great value of some of those old time home cure3, a successful effort has beeu made to re discover the lost secret of their prep aration, and, coupled with all the im provement which human ingenuity and progress suggests, they are now widely known under the name of War ner's Log Cabin Ramedies, the most prominent being Log Cabin Sarsa parilla and Log Cabin Cough and Consumption Remedy. The suffering public has been quick to recognize and appreciate their true value and the manufacturers are daily in receipt of much praise for the re discovery and revival of these old time remedies against sickness and disease.
