The National Bank ot Missouri Suspends
. with $2,000 OOO Deposits
bT. Lons, June 20. It is stated that
the deposits in the National Bank of the
State of Missouri were, yesterday, $2,000,
000. Included in this were $240,000
belonging to the city,and $130,000 officially
placed there by the assignees, registers,
and masters in chancery all secured by
bonds. It is claimed the depositors will
be paid in full, of which 50 cents on the
dollar will be paid very soon, the assets
of the bank being amply iufficient for this
purpose. It is also said the affairs of the
bank were examined by a special exam
iner from the treasury department a few
weeks ago, which resulted in the election
of a new board of directors. Four new
men were elected and at the next meeting
ot the board an examination ot the eouur
tion of the bank was made and it was
voted to wind up the business. Since then
no new business has been taken by the
bank. Great shriakage in real estate and
other values are the principal causes of
the suspension.

bank, but the sum is not known. The
repository of the state is at St. Joseph,
but it is believed that the baak there
divided the state deposits with other banks,
and that the State bauk is one of them.
Ex-State Auditor Johnson Comes to Grief
in Consequence.
New Orleans. June 20. Ex-State
Auditor Johnson was to-day sentenced to
the parish prison for ten days and $50
fine, for refusing to pi oduco certain books
called for, and to answer certain questions
as to their contents, propounded by the
grand jury. Johnson says some of the
missing documents were destroyed and
others were taken away when they were
expecting an attack from the White
eague m January last. In his Detition
to the court, Johnson says he could not
answer the questions for fear of crimina
ting himself.
The Doomed Molly Maguires Aristocratic
New York, June 20. --A Pottsville,
a. dispatch says the caution and secrecv
with which all matters connected with the
execution of the Molly Maeuires, to-mor

aid that the reason for it is in order that
those engaged in arranging it may not be
nown. J he sheriff, for instance, will not
tell the local reporters where the gallows
is to stand -or who built it. and when he
earned that a renorter had discovered
those vital matters, he sent lor him in
great haste and lost him a clear halt
coluruu by threatening to leave him out on
the day ot execution, in case he should
publish news so surreptitiously acquired.

remedies advertised as cures for Consumption,
probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dau

A He&icine of Many Uses.
A medicine which remedies dyspepsia,
liver complaint, constipation, debility, in
termittent and remittent fevers, urinary
and uterine troubles, depurates the blood,
counteracts a tendency to rheumatiim and
gout, and relieves nervousness, may be
truly said to have many uses. Sach an
article is Hostetter'a Bitters, one ot the
most reliable alteratives of a disorderly to
a well ordered state of tbe system ever
prepared or . sold. It has been over a
quarter ot a century before tbe public, is
endorsed by, many eminent professors of
tbe healing art, and its merits have re
ceived repeated recognition in the columns
of leading American and foreign journals.
It is highly esteemed in eyery part of this
country, and is extensively used in South
America, Mexico, the British possessions
and the W est Indies. If its increase in
public fayor in the past is to be regarded
as a reliable criterion of its gain in popu
lanty iu coming years, it has indeed
splendid future before it,
