Loyan appeared in the senate for the last lime on Fridav. Dt-c. 10. On Sunday he ke pt the privacy of his rsoni rheumatism making its first approaches lie crew rapidly worse. Dr. J'asttr prescribed the remedies thiil had liefore been efficacious, and before the weekend', ed there was every indication thnt the disease had been counteracted. Then a slight cold was contracted, and ti.e rheu matic torture returned with greiti-r acu'.eats. The suncrms' senntor was unable to turn in hi9 bed. He hid lust control of his limbs. Fever developed, and a sequence of the complications was delirium. This subsided for a time and a semi-comatose condition ensued. On Saturday afternoon Dis. Baxter and Hamilton called Dr. Lincoln. Tl.ir ; result of their examination for the fiist, time warranted a change in tie cun.i.t of popular impression as to Gi-e. Logan's j illness. It was felt that th.; (.homes w ic j aKMost his rollyia?. and that his life would fade out. The watchers by h.s side Saturday night were Surccon-Geu-eral Hamilton, Representatives vmes. Gen. Beale, and the family. They began tbeir faithful vigils with flush o? a new hope. At 9 o'clock the patient rallied wonderfully, until tbe improvea.et;t seemed substantia! and indicative that the crisis hi been parsed, sx.I ultirr.ite recovery might be indulged as a hope not too sanguine. Bat after midnight he re I lapsed into the unconscious condition I w hich has marked his malady. The doc j tors' instructions were toaroue him from I his letbarcy at 'east every fifteen minutes, i He was thus aro-csed and given medicine I and nourishment . During the hours of ! his apparent change for better he had re frained the use of his limbs and readily turned himself in bed. He was not al lowed to talk, but did articulate distinctly a few phrases. At about 2 o'clock tbe doctor again sought to wake him into consciousness by merely speaking to him. Finding it impossible, Mr. Symes spoke to him in his usual loud and rather gruflE voic. Gen, Logan responded to the call, open ed his eyes, and cave a look of reconi lion. Then there Silted over his face an expression that was seensinsly to be translated that he comprehended that his end was near and that the doctor sought to inform him of the fact. To this siient self-translation of an idea that had cot been conveyed to him. Gen. Logan sud: "I have very little to 6ay; if the time has come, iet it be that wny.'' This was the last ot the clear, aDd certainly the longest of all of '.he sentences the dying man spoke. At 3 o'clock the doctor Lc::t over the prostrate form and could detect no beat ing of the heart. Respiration had apparently ceased, and the family hurried toward the bed, believ ing that death had stalked in un awares. But presently life was again perceptible, but there was no subsequent rally. All through the morning hours the patient lay in unbroken coma except for one crattful moment of consciousness during which the devoted wife gained a clance o! recognition, ah me mornini; it was hopeless, without a r.iv to disirel tbe gioom. There was nothing in the afternoon hours to bring encouragement. At 2:o7, unconscious and painless, the heroic sufferer died. Just before tne last spark of life flickered out Ihe Rev. J. P. Newman had concluded a prayer at the bedside. The approach of dissolution was plain ly foreseen at noon. There were present n the room wheu death c:me Mrs Logan, her dauchttr, Mrs. Tucker, acd Mai. Tucker, aud the only son. Manning Logan, Gen, Sheridan. Gen. Beale, Sena tor Cullom and daughter. Gen, Hender son of Illinois. Representative Dum.ts. Dr. Powell, an old Chicago friend, Gen. Green B.

Npw York BulU and Beam Anticipate the Holidays. New Youk, !eo. lit. Friday's session of the stock exchanjr? was largely Riven up to fun and frolic on the part of the younger members, and of course but little business was done. Tbe older brokers made utterly inefleetnal efforts to frown down the pre vailing frivoli'y, and finally gave it up in disgust F'lotball and other games were in dulged in for some time, and a hat-smashing scene was imminent when suddenly an organ grinder made his appearance. The hilarious brokei-s at ones seize.! the terrified man, dragged hint in 011 the floor, and compelled him to grind out hii list of tunes, while the hulls and baars danced around uproariously. The musician finally got tired of turning the e-rank and was at once replaced by a young broker, who ground out a waltz in excellent style. Tbe members of the board then took turns at tu-3 crank while their fellows carried oil a noisy dance till all were tired out. The organ-grinder was then allowed to depart, his hat bein? well filled with silver bestowed by the noiy brokers. TIRED OF JAIL "HASH." The ontiimaeious Terklm Applies lor a Writ of Unheal Corpus. IxoiANAr.il.ls, Dec. 27. The lawyers of Perkins, toe contumacious witness now lying in iail by order of the united States commis sioner, tiled in his behalf Saturday a petition in the federal owrt for a writ of habeas cor pus to be issued against the United States marshal and the sheriff, and directing them to appearand show cause why the petitioner should not be discharged from custody. The petition cam- up for hearing before Judge Woods late Friday afternoon, Messrs. Smith, Calkins, Hord and Hendrick6 appear ing for the petitioner, and Messrs. Kitter and Turpie opposing. Mr. Ritter filed a de murrer, alleging insufficiency of facts, and in his opening statement raised the question of the rikht of the court to try such proceed ings, claiming that ttiey should have been brought before Commissioner Van fiuren. Tue argument coneiuded at a late hour, and the court deelined to give any decision at present, but promised one early next week. THE FAGUS DISASTER.

"If people could only know what a splendid medicine Simmons Liver Regulator is there would be many a phy sician without a patient and many an interminable doc tor bill saved. I consider it infallible in malarial infec tion. I had for many years been a perfect physical wreck from a combination of complaints, all the out growth of malaria in my system, and even under the skillful hand of Dr. J. P. Jones, of this city, I had de spaired of ever being a well woman again. Simmons Siver Regulator wa8 recom mended to me. I tried it; it helped me, and it is the only thing that ever did me any good. I persevered in its use, and I am now in per fect health. I know the medicine cured me, and I always keep it as a reliable 'standby' in my family." Kespectmliy, Mrs. Mary Ray, Camden, Ala.
