A serious stabbing affray occurred in Burlington last Monday eveniog, in which Christian Range, brother of Louis Range, of this city, received wounds from the ef fects of which he died this morning the 3d. The man who did the stabbing was Dr. Volkammer, ' a veterinary surgeon. t appears that Mr. Range, who owns a bakery there, had a son of the Doctors in his employ,whom he discharged about two months ago. This offended the Doctor, and, on several occasions since, he has at tempted to commence a fow with Range who has always walked away from him. On Monday evening, however, they met in a saloon, kept by a man named Phil Hein, opposite the Barret Ilouse. Volkammer again brought up the subject of his son being discharged, when Range informed him that he did not wish to discuss the matter any more, and started to leave the saloon. While standing in the door, the Dr. struck Range and the men then clinched. While struggling on the ground Volkammer drew & long knife from a sheath and plunged it four times into Range's body two of the wounds being in 'the abdomen, and from one of them, eight inches long, the bowels protuded three feet. Immediately after the stabbing Volkammer proceeded to his residence. aDd hid himself in the loft of his barn, where he was found by the officers and jailed. Mr. Range was carried to his home, and although every effort was made to save his life, the knife had done its work too well, and a telegram received this forenoon states that he died early this morning. When his brother.Louis Range,heard of the affair he immediately started for Bur lington, and was present when the un fortunate man died. His remains will probably be brought to this city for burial He married a daughter of the late G SeiJel, ofjthis city, and left here about five years ago. II is vnte and lour children are left in comfortable circumstances. Fubhc opinion is strongly against Volk ammer, and ihe will probably be indicted for murder, as the assault is said to have been made without the least provocation and after friends of both parties had at tempted to pacify him. Later. It has been decided to bury the murdered man in Burlington, and the funeral will take place at 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. He will be buried by the U. A. O. D., of which society he was a leading member. NOTES HERE AHD THERE. Burglars ars at work hi Galva. '--"Jobn,you said Sally kissed you- Did you kiss her back?"

The railroad strike induced him to take a 150 mile ride by team.

Tho Coal Valley Mining Co. has received orders from Mr. .Manville to ship coal for use of the C, R. I. & P. R. R. to Peru, which seems to indicate a continuance of the miner's strike in thai vicinity, and, probably, at btreator. I ho same com pany has received inquiries from the Western Union R. R., for twenty cars of coal, which is, also, probably due to fears pf a continuance of the strike at the mines along that road. Tbe Coal Valley Mining company can supply fifty cars of coal a day, and under its able and judicious man- 1 agemenc no smite can possibly occur among tho miners. This fact, together with the shipment of coil over these roads will be terribly demoralizing to the strikers at those places. It is a bad year for strikes. Work for Congress. . Secretary Sherman's recent order for the sales of $1,000,000 of government cold leaves him without a shadow of excuse for his neglect to assist the popular sub scription of the four per cents, by tracing gold for sale at the varions sub-treasuries. Lie now confesses that tbe government has more-gold than it has need for, and it will be well for congress to look into the inner mysteries of the syndicate contract when it assembles. No ono has as yet shown a disposition to charge that Mr, Sherman is purposely playing into the hands of the syndicate bankers; but it may be said that if he were, it would not be possible for him to manage the finances of the country more effectively for them and more disastrously for the country. Wheth er will fut or not, his mismanagement is coating the people millions of money, and yet there are apostles of a "higher law" who fear to discuss this managmentof Secreta ry Sherman, and its effect on tht business of the country. Legal Blanks, of all kinds for pale Tin A&qus Oracx) at The Chippewa Lumber Sain. A telegram from Wasnington brings the intelligence that tho Attorney Gener al of the United States has decided that the government shall not withdraw as a party plaintiff in the uit against the Mississippi Valley Logging Co., brought to restrain the running of logs in the Chip pewa river, Wisconsin. A Milwaukee telegram gives a history of the cause of this suit, as follows: It will be recollected that Beef Slough is at the mouth of the Chippewa river on the Upper Mississippi; that the booms of the Beef Slough Co. have been so extend ed, as is alleged, as to interfere with the navigation of the Chippewa for rafts and steamboats. The real point is, however. that the Beef Slough system of Doomage as afforded such facilities for boom and rafting logs that many pine land owners find it more to their interest to cut their ogs, mark them, and turn them loose in UbiDDewa river and its branches, to float down and be boomed and ratted at Beef Slough for a market at the mills on tbe banks of the Mississippi below that point, than for them to have their logs sawed at the Chippewa river mills at Chippewa Falls, Eau Clare, Menomonee, etc. This state of things has changed the Chippewa river and its tributaries into a boat-way for vast drifts of logs, interfering with steamboat and raft navigation. This caused suits to be brought in the United States court for the Western districts of Wisconsin for the abatement of this nuis ance, lne suit is in tne form ot a quo warranto proceeding against the Beef Slough company, for the obstruction of tbe Chippewa river, one of the navigable tributaries of the Mississippi, on which the ordinance of 1787 declares that navigation shall be forever free. This suit possesses a local interest from the fact the saw mill owners of this city, are members of the .logging company against whom the suit is brought, and because, if the suit is decided adversely to the de fendants, it will decrease the supply of logs for our mills, cause the price of lum ber to increase from 10 to 15 per cent and seriously injure our lumber trade. The progress of the suit will be watched with much interest. A Remedial Agent cf Uncommon Power It is a fact which became patent years ago to the people of the United States, that Ilosteter's Stomach Bitters is a remedial agent of uncommon power. As a conse quence of this recognition, its sales have increased immensely at home and abroad, and it has risen to a foremost rank among the proprietary medicines of the day. Chemical analysis, after submitting it to the closest scrutiny, pronounce it absolute ly pure, and skilful and conscientious med ical practitioners recommend its use. A wide range of disorders falls within the scope of its curative operation- Among them may be enumerated dyspepsia, liver complaint, constipation, nervous ailment. urinary and uterine affections, rheumatism and gout. It is a supremely efficacious tonic, hastens convalescence, cheers tbe mind, imparts appetite, and promotes sound sleep. The mischievous character of the sen timents expressed in the Rock Island Union of Suoday, in relation to the strike, is best illustrated in the fact of the utter falsity of the statements upon which they assume to rest The strike has not been in any re spect, a "substantialy success," On the contrary, it has, failed at almost every point to gain tbe object sought an increase of wages. It has, also, occasioned serious loss and real distress to large numbers of persons least able to bear these ills the laboring classes. Every true friend of the laboring man must increasingly deplore the whole strike as a serious mistake and substantial vtoug. Cambridge Chronicle. Tho Chronicle is informed that the reason the Union has taken this side of the question is because the Davenport Gazette took a decided stand on the other side and the proprietors of the Virion can never bear to advocate anything which the Gazette favors, no matter how absurd or ridiculous it may appear iu opposing it matched game of ball in this city on Wednesday next. The following is a true copy of a letter received by a village schoolmaster: feur as you are a man of nolege, I intend to inter my son in your skull." An eccentric clergyman lately said in one of his sermons that about the common est proof we have that man is made of clay is the brick so often found in his bat. A stroke of lightning the other day tore a boy's boot all to pieces and didn harm the boy. The reason was that he had placed the boot under a tree and gone in swimming. The Remingtons, of Davenport, laid the Interiors, of Geneseo, out in the cold yesterday afternoon, by a score of 37 to 1. Better stay on this side of the creek, boys, we use you much better. "If there is anybody under the canister of heaven that I have in utter excres cence," says Mrs. Partington, "it is the slanderer going about like a boa construc tor.circulating bis calomel on honest folks.'' Uere's news for you. The Aledo Banner says: "At Rock Island the num erous, employes of Deere's plow factory, were obliged to knock off, and much other business in the place has been more or less paralyzes." We understand that President Riddle has issued an order that the employes cf of the C. 11. I. & P. road are to receive the old rate of wages tbe same as before the late ten per cent, reduction. His promise to them meant just this, when he told them in the end, their action would be to their advantage. The Premium list of the 17th annual St. Louis Fair and Exposition has been re ceived.

The Old Settlers of Henry county unite in their first annual picnic and reunion next enday afternoon and evening at Cam bridge. The secretary 01 the association request every old settler to send to the meeting a full memorandum of his or her name, residence, aocupation, where and when born, and dale of settlement in the country. All this data is to be preserved. Among the express package going west over the Rock island road yesterday morning, were the bodies of five soldiers killed by Sitting Bull's band at Big Horn, on the 25th of June 1876. The bodies were those of Lieut, E. A. Smith, Lieut, Calhorn, Col. Thos. Custer, Capt. Yates and Lieut, Mcintosh. They were going to Leavenworth. The prepaid charges on each were $75. No mention has yet been made of any of our ministers preaching about the strike. It is said one of them has advised his con gregation to wear fine clothes, feed their bodies luxurious and delicate food, live in fine houses and send their family carriages around to the pastor that he may make bis parochial calls with Jess trouble and more frequently. Very good, indeed for these times, that sermon contains neither reli gion or politics. Let it be printed and distributed among the laboring classes. Some one in Orion sent an invitation to Rev. Mr. Mcuavern of this city, to preach at the M. E. church in Orion Sun day morning and evening, cigaing Presi ding Elder Chaffee's name to it. The in vitation was accepted, to the embarrass ment of the humbugged clergymen, the presiding elder, the congregation, tnd their pastor. 1 be matter is being investigated, and the guilty party will be punithed if detected. Talk about hard times! Money was never more plenty than at present; at least we judg? so from a conversation that we heard between two boys in front of the postoffice yesterday afternoon. One of them was about eleven years old; wore a McGhee cut on his hair and a stone bruise on his heel. The other wore a fish pole over his right shoulder and a Bquint in his left eye. This was the conversation : "That bass what 1 cocbt weighed mor n five pounds." "I bet you a thousan' dollars it didn't.1' "I betcher five thousan dollars it did come now!" Neither boy looked as if it were his custom to carry so much mon ey about him, and yet the occurrence was so common that not a boy among all tbe lookers-on gave any evidence that he would feel alarmed if called upon to hold the stakes. , War is au expensive luxury. An Eng lish correspondent with the Russian armyjat Kars states that up to the time when the siege of Kars was raised the cost of bombs used was about $1,200,000.
