CONSUMPTIVES TAKE NOTICE !
Every moment of delay makes your cure more
hopeless, and much depends on the judicious
choice of a remedy. The amount of testimony in
ravor or Dr. Schenck's Pulmonic syrup, as a cure
for Consumption, far exceeds all that can be
brought to support the pretensions of any other
medicine. Sea Dr. Schenck's Almanac, containing
the certificates of many persons of the highest re

will show; but the cure i often promoted by the
mployment of two other remedies which D-
Schenck provides for the purpose. These addi

but Mr, Walling insisted on his motion.
Mr. Ilaskins said if a call could be de
manded any time during the proceedings.
further business was impossible; nobody
had right to claim there's no quorum if
the chair h;ts ascertained there is.
.Mr. Walling disclaiming any reflection
on the chair in not accepting his state
ment and demanded the yeas and nays,
which resulted yeas, 6S, nays 169 and a
call of the house was refused. This pro
ceeding consumed an hour and quarter
aud was followed by a motion to recon
sider, which the speaker entertained
notwithstanding Mr. Woods protest.
The speaker contended that he had never
ruled or decided or inferred that a motion
to reconsider was a dilatory motion.
The motion to reconsider was tabled, 174
Messrs Wood, Poppleton, Caulfield and
Mills struggledt'or recognition, claiming
tbat they had questions of the highet
privilege to submit. It seemed that the
speaker had recognized Mr. Wood before
the motion for a call of the house and Mr.
Poppleton presented objections to the
certificate from Vermont, consequently
the speaker arranged with these gentle
men that Mr. Poppleton should otter Mr.
Wood's resolution &nd that Mr. Wood
should move the previous question. In
the meantime Mr. Caulfield, who was not
recognized, handed Mr. Poppleton
resolution sent to the clerk's desk. The
speaker suggestedthat this was hardly in
consonanie with the aereement made, but
Mr. Poppletcn insisted on the reading. It
recites that the Hewitt package of votes
from Vermont was a duplicate of the one
which was sent to the president of the
senate; that such a package had been
made a part of the objection
to tho certificate of ermont and still
remained unopened, and that the objection
cannot be considered while such package
is retained by the president or secretary ot
the senate and therefore resolving that the
refusal of the president of the senate to
open such package in the presence ot th
two houses was a violation ot the law an
of the privileges of the house and th
counting of the vote cannot proceed until
such veto is counted, and that the senate
be requested to meet the house in joint
session that the package may be opened,
The sneaker then announced that th
new legislative day had begun.
There was a brief pause during prayer,
but the reading of the journal gave Mr,
Springer an opportunity and he demanded
that the detailed statement, ot papers
votes, etc,, be not omitted.
the speaker stated that it was irapossi
ble, as the details were not copied in th
iiiut'ual. 1 ho speaker refused to entertain

Columbus, March 1. Governor Hayes
and party left for Washington tbis after
noon at 1 o'clock via Pittsburg and llanis
burg. His departure was made the occa
sion of a civil and military ovation. The
street leading from the governor's resi
dence to the depot was gaily decorated
with flags, and crowds lined the sidewalks.
A. detachment of U S. troops from Colum
bus barracks,the Columbus cadets and ca
dets from the agricultural college, formed
the escort and numerous bands furnished
music. The arrival of the presidential
party at the depot was greeted by a great
crowd of citizens who rent the air with
lusty cheers a3 the president and his fami
ly transierrea themselves lrom the carn-
ries to the special cars.
In response to demands Governor Hayes
ppeared on the rear platform of his car
aud delivered an earnest speech which
was several times interrupted by the
movement of cars on adjoining tracks.
rinally the governor bid the crowd farc-
ell. As tne train moved out of the
epot the people gave loui cheers aud
)ands played Aula Liang byne ard
other national airs. A large party, includ
iog a number ot correspondents of metro
politan journals, accompanied Governor
layes. the members ot the governors
amuy accompanying were Mrs. Hayes,
us sons Webb U. Hayes and bcott
Hayes and his daughter Fannie. Among
the members of the party were General

the principal granger case affirming
the light of the state to fix by law the
maximum of charges for storage of grain
in warehouses at Chicago, and other
places in the state having not less than
100,000 inhabitants, in which grain is
stored in bulk and in which the grain of
different owners is mixed together, or in
which grain i stored in such a manner that
the identification of different lots or par

conclusion is that the law is not repugnant
to the constitution of the United States

"Yesterday afternoon, Marshal Wells

Graham, two brothers, who were suspic
ioued as the parties that robbed and so
brutally bruised C. J. Anderson, Tuesday
night. They found them at the coal bank
loading a wagou with coal, and, without
any trouble, brought them to Moline and
lodged them in the calaboose where theu
now are. Officers Wells and Olson visited
the home of the Grahams this morning
with a search warrant, but failed to find
any of the goods of which Anderson
claims be was robbed. A piece of whip
was fouud with the Grahams, which cor

Anderson was seen in company with ,!olin

A THIEF SAYS HE DON'T RECOGNIZE
From the Ptoria Democrat,
McArthur, the Chicago defaulting post
master, was another of those brilliant
military "headlights" who went into the
army early and as early saw the rich
places that lay open to an officer . who
cared more for plunder than he did for
honor, and sought promotion in order to
widen his opportunities in that direction.
He w.s a small pattern of a man at best;
self-important and consequential, in his
estimation. The idea that any office, in
the army or the civil service, was a public
trust never entered his head. His highest
conception was that it might help him to
make money. Let him go to the penitentiary,

Made at the oldest Anvil manufactory in this
country. All English Anvils, cfler a time, become
hollowing on the face by continued hammering iu
use, on acconnt of the fibrous nature of the wrought
iron causing it to "settle," under the Bteel.
But the body of the eagle Anvil being uf crvs-
talHzed iron, such settling caunot occur ; aud the
steel face therefore remains perfectly true. Also,
it has the great advantage, that being of a more
solid material, and, conteuuently, with K-t-a re
bound, the piece forged receives the FULL effi-et
of the hammer, instead of a part uf it being wasted
Dy toe rebonna, as with a wrought iron Anvil.
More work can therefore lie done on this Anvil
with a hammer one-fifth lighter than r. quired for a
wrought iron Anvil which is more elastic.
The working surface is in one piece of Jcmsop's
Bkst Tool. Cast Stclu accurately ground, bard
ened and given the proper temper for the heaviest
work. The horn is oi tough u is tempered steel.
The cast steel surface is warranted to be thor
oughly welded and not to come off.
