The Magic Oil does indeed work like a charm. Six years ago mother had a fall which came very near rt suiting fatally. She recovered her health in some degree during tbe year following, but she sustained such severe injuries, especially iu her spine and left arm nd shoulder, that she was almost helpless. Ho pin;j a change of climate might be beneficial, the spring of the second year after her fall she went to Utica.iS. I ., to visit some relatives. Diie mere she obtained and used some of your Magic Oil ; it relieved her almost immediately , so much so tbt she came home very much improved in health and strength, and by the free use of the Magic Oil she is now enjoying better health than she has known for ten years, and has recovered entirely from her injuries. Mother has so mnch confidence in your Magic Oil that she will not be without it. Respectfully yours, Joseph E. Dixson.

In the case of Abe Rothschild, accused of the murder of Bessie Moore, at Jeffers m.Texas, who was here awaiting extradition proceedings, Judge Matsou, this morning, dismissed the writ of habeas corpus, and Sheriff Wallace, on advice of his attorneys, turned Rothschild over to the Texas authorities, in obedience to the order of J udge Avery in the dismissal of the writ when the question was argued before him in the first place. Rothschild was quietly taken in charee bv Denutv Vine, ot Texas, and quit kly transferred to a carriage in wait ing at the corner of Broadway and Syca more streets, near the entrance to the iml. and the driver, it is supposed, went in the direction of Lawrenceburg, Indi aua. to get the advantage that the three states of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, at that point would give him.

A coal miuer by the name of David Holmes was thrown off a coal train on Thursday of last week, at Kewanee, and felt so near the the track that the ends of his fingers on one hand were caught by the trucks and cut off. He was not other wise injured but he had a narrow escape from death. Wednesday, according to the figures reported to us Mr. Samuel A. Taylor was beaten only 9 votes, but the official vote published to-day, shows 13 against him.

On Tuesday, the peonle of Kewanee elected the entire citizens' township icket. James K.

Vail, straight repub lican, liush received 323 votes, and V ail 03 votes a majority of 120 for Blish- fhere was no contest except on supervisor and assessor. The Kewanee Independent says: "While the election of Mr. Blish is not in any sense a Democratic victory, it is a defeat of the 'thick and tbin" Republi cans who tried to draw the party lines in the interest of their candidate, and but for their partisan spirit there would have been no contest."
