child, three years old, was suddenly attacked with
a terrible disease, which in less than six hours
prostrated it to total helplessness, The limbs be-
cameso rigid that not a joint could be bent ; the
flesh turned black and cold and entirely deprived
oi leeiing; the eyes nxert, partially closeo aua ai
togetner lilintt, lollowiug thiswas deafness to all
sounds; the spine became contracted and so curved
that when lying on its back the head and heels on!y
toucned. indeed, the child presented every ap
nearauce of being dead. Immediately on the at
tack, the family physician was called lu. and for
three weeks he labored to restore it to feeling, but
ail In vain, although It waB blistered a dozen times
and vsrious rubefacient Liniments applied . A con
sulfation of uhysieians was then held, but to no
purpose, the caee was then brought before the
Medical Society, bnt nothing could be suggested
which liad not already been done, and tb -doctor
then told niche could do uothing more. We then
commenced applying your Liniment freely over the
entire lengtn of tne iino, aua you may uiiugiuu

to send the name and postoffico address of
physicians to the clerk s cfhee by mail,and
upon the receipt of feuch the clerk ia au
thorized to enter them upon the register.

Indian Affair b.
Chicago. Dec 28 Official information
from Big Horn Post, Montana, says two
Nez Perces have come into camp having
been in Sitting Bull's camp, and report
that a white scout is in the hands of the
hostiles as a prisoner. The N ez Perces

slipping away whenever possible, but are

St. Louis, Dec. 28. At the instance of
the directors of the Real Lstate Sayings
Institute, the stockholders held a meeting
this afternoon, and after a full and free
discussion a resolution was adopted to
suspend at once. The assets are placed at
$45,000, mainly in bonas, mortgages on
real estate, and the liabilities to depositors
are about $255,000. It is thought that
depositors will be paid in full and perhaps
stockholders will receive something. The
cause of the suspension is the great shrink
age in real estate values and inability to
realize on securities,
