For four years I Lave been a sufferer
from a terrible form of Rheumatism,
wbich reduced me so low that all hope of
recovery was given up. I Lave buffered
the most excruciating pain day and night,
and often while writhing in agony have
wished I could die. 1 have tried every
thing known for that disease, but notlk

of the finest physicians of tbe state lo
work on me, but all to no eftect. I have
spent over 800 without nndimreUei. I
am now proud to say that after usirj
only one bottle of B. B. B. I am enabled
to walk around and attend to business,

CoLfMBrs, O., D?c. 27. Governor For-

itentiary Sarah I. V ictor, tne noted pris
oner sent from Cleveland on a life sentence.
The pipers were delivered at the chapel ex
ercises, wiuco take place at Jl a. tn ,
and in tho preseiuv of the frreat
lai-ons o! other convicts. Mrs. Victor
is one of the most not xl of Ohio convict,
and few in the country have received bo
much attention from the press. For many
vears, as eaeh Christmas approached, she
bus busied htrst it in gettur; little notions iu
readmess iu the nope that she would be par
doned. She had made- similar preparations
thin venr to meet and remember her friend.
Her crime was the poisoning of ber brother
JS'i7, in order to get his life insur
ance which was made for her benefit. Sh
was sentenced to be hung, but became insane
before the day of her execution, and tho st u
teuce was commuted to imprisonment lor
life. Later an accidental fall restore! her
reason. She has always maintained her in-
r.cxreuce and doubts as to the correctness of
the chemical examination of her brother's
body is the prin'-ipal cause of her release.

New York, IKc. '27. A rumor in Walt
street, Fri lay, that the emperor of Germany
was dead, proved to he without foundation.
The origin of the report was traced by a re
porter through several brokers to a gentle
man m a brokers oftico in Mroadwav, who
admitted saving to a friend on oieiu:i:
telegram: "The emperor William ,i dead."
This was intended as a joke. The friend
rushed out and repeated the statemout, and
in a few minutes the i urnor of the emperor's
death had leeu printed as part of the news
by the various ticker and bulletins.
