He sent out invitations for a number of southern republicans to meet in confer ence, his object being to get himself in- ; lorsed for a portion in Harrison's cshi "i. n lien tne conference met it was n learned that about three-fourths of 'h ra were bitterly opposed to the little "e'i-boss, and it was all that he and his friends could do to prevent them from endorsing some other fellow. ft r ill Mr Cleveland, it aeema, is going to have anotber fight with tbe republican majority in the senate. He has nomina ted Mr. Levi 0. Builey, of Indianapolis, to be United States attorney for the die trict of Indiana, and the republican sena tors say they intend to reject him. The reason given for this is that Mr. Bailey made himself obnoxious personally to Mr. Harrison during the late campaign, but the real reason is that Mr. Bailey as assistant attorney has been in charge of the judicial political investigation, which many republicans fear may put striped clothes upon some of their Indiana breth ren, and if confirmed as attorney would be prepared to pu&h the caws. The re1 publicaus figure that if they reject Bai ley and "hang up" any other nomination Mr. Cleveland may send in to fill the vacancy, the place caD be kept open until Harrison comes in, and that he can select a man who will not be hard upon the bribers who helped to carry Indiana for him. r I, Speaking of suicide and insanity, the Boston Globe says whether the tendency of what we call progress is to make life less and less desirable, or whether makes It so much more fascinating that men live it too fast and too unwisely, is an open question. But certain il is that the prt valence of suicide is alarmingly on the increase everywhere. In England the proportion of suicides in 1973 was 73 out of every million of population, being an increase per year of 10 persons since 1840. In Frauee the suici ies increased from 48 persons to the million in 1827 to 102 to the million in 1852, and they have continued at the same rate of increase since. The alarming incre;ise of suicide in this country is a mutter of common comment. We invariably account for it by referring to the highly oxygenized condition of our atmosphere, the break- I neck pressure of business, and the many tempting prizes of speedy riches which plunge men into overwork and excitement. But the singular ftct confronts us, according to recent investi gations, that in Snxnny, in the heart of the continent of Europe, where the methods of life are phlegmatic and slow, the proportion of suicides is far greater than in England, having increased from 149 to the million iu 1849 to 8!1 in 1877. This seems to upset entirely thf American over-work theory. For aught we know suicide may be in the nature of diseased tendency caused by planetary, atmos pheric, geological, and othr conditions t-Which the earth Is subject in the pres ent century. Of all the valuable things that science accomplishes, the most valua ble Is that of constantly teaching H self the number of things it does not know. None the less is the reck less pace at which American life is kept up in the race for wealth and power conducive to suicide, since pro- ductive of insanity. It has been some times doubted whether a perfectly sane man ever committed suicide. Qrief and despair undoubtedly produce insanity in many instances before self-destruction follows. None of the lower animals ever resort to self-destruction, however intense and hopeless the misery that is loaded upon them, from the fact that tbey live so closely up to nature that in sanity can not be induced from natural causes. Therefore, if people strive so to condition their lives as to avoid the dan ger of Insanity, the decrease of suicide will take of itself. It is the rapid in sanity in modern life that in the real source of alarm, and is arousing the at tention of scientists all over the world. He Make tha Nerve of HU Safctjecta Hi Playthings A Girl Who Smiled on On Side of Her Face Am axing In trac tion. Professor Charcot, the renewed specialist of diseases of the cervons system, performed some striking exiwriraems on hysterical sub jects in the course of a lecture dlivered at the Balpetriere asylum. About 300 students were present The attendants introduced the araohi theatre two women stretched on cots and perfectly unconscious. One was a pale faced girl, with abundant Hack huir and a band- some face. As she lav helnkta aeamst the white pillow, her long lashes curving over fast closed eyes, she suggesfc'd the sleeping oeanty. tier companion was a large woman, about fifty years of age, with coarse florid features. The contrast between them was complete. The distinguished sjecialist began by ex plaining that the two subjects before him were in different stares of hysteria malor. Tue elder worann was afflicted with paralysis of the logs, which bad kept her in bed for years. She was at present in a profound hysterical sloop, which had already lasted eignteen days, and from which human sci ence knew no moans of rousing her. She might remain in this condition fur walre or months, during which time sha would only receive in tho way of food certain nutritive liquids, which she swallowed automatical! v. Proft.w.eor Ciwreot here directed an attend ant to administer somo milk to the patient This she did, and holding tiie glass with one hand wane sh;-raised i!ie woman' head with the other, she wntrcd until the entire con tents of t be goblet had been slowly tiwallowed. Several times daring the seance tbo patent beet slowly and heavily forward with swaying motion, for no apparent reason. if to saiut- the audience. ai:d always accom panying the movement with a hoarse, inar ticulate sound, somewhat like tho snarl of dog. There was something ghastly in this to one not hardened to dissecting room horrors. v arious testa were made to demonstrate the Impossibility of waking tho woma:;. A large orass gong was sounded with almost deafen ing din directly over her head. U)r nostrils were tickled with a leather, and she was made to inhale ammonia. Nothing had the slightest effect, tier eyes remained closed. and she cave no sign of sensibility. i hen the professor coded attention to the remarkable conq ition of her muscular system. Her arms would remain ri-rid in any position in which they were placed, nor would they leave it until sneer physical fatigue over came tbo automatic resistance. The joints of her fingers, wrists, cibows and shoulders were moved in a var.ety of way, and in every case tne poor woman was powerli change tiivir position. She was like a well made, wooden jointed doll. eit came tne turn ot the lethargic eiri, who is one of Professor Charcot's pet sub jects. Plie remains constantly in the hospital, and on special occasions tbo savant demon strates the wonderful power he has over her. So sensitive is her temperament that he can at his will throv.- her iuto the profound lethargy in which she lay on this occasion. lie tirst statea that tins youn? woman was in a stage of hysteria radically different from that of her companion. She was like an in ert mass; her muscles were ail relaxed and it was impossible for any member of her bodv to retain a fixed position without sunport There was also a marked difference in the enndition of the nervous systems cf the two women. The one was keenly sensitive, the other apparently dead In each case the pro fessor pressed a pencil upon the facial nerve. which lies directly in front of the ear. This bad not the sJightetst effect upon the woman in the hysterical sleep, whereas the face of the young girl instantly lighted up in a smile. Curiously enough, she only smiled on the side where the pressure was applied. Il was the same with other nerves. The lethargic girl would raise her hand when the operator pressed upon the radial nerve above the eloow jouit. When the mesial nerve. near the former, was touched, her arm would soring up iu a pugilistic attitude, with the fist tightly clenched, and on applying the pencil to what is vulgarly knowu as the "funny bone she would lift her arm pronouncing a benediction, the first second fingers of the hand being raised heavenward. Nothing of this sort had any effect upon the other subject. An experiment with the gon, which bad been vainly beaten above the first patient, produced a startling effect in this case. The Chef do Clinique had struck but a singh blow on the sounding brass when the young girl started up as by an electric shock. he sat straight up, with her eyes wide open, and but for their fixed, stony gaze one might have fancied her awake. She had passed an instant from the state of lethargy into that of catalepsy. She neither moved nor spoke. Professor Charcot proceeded, to show that pressure upon the nerves no longer produced muscular contraction. We were in the pres ence of a new set of phenomena. The pro fessor lifted the girl's right hand to her lips, as if she were throwing a kiss. Instantly the unconscious association of ideas caused the right side of the face to smile. It was the same when the left hand was raised, and when both hands touched her lips the entire race radiated the mind:s happy thought. The young gentlemen present enjoyed this greatly. A frown was produced with equal facility. Clenching one of the fists caused a scowl to puss over the corresponding side of the face, and the professor succeeded by combining the two processes In making her smile on one side and frown on the other. No one who saw this extraordinary contortion could for a moment question the genuineness of the dem onstration. StU more extraordinary was the facility with which Professor Charootmade his pa tient pass back from catalepsy to lethargy. This he accomplished by simply closing the lids and pressing gently on one or both of her eyes, oy toueiijug tne rignt eye ne cnangea the girl' right side into the lethargic con dition while lea ving the left side under the In fluence of catalepsy. He demonstrated to the satisfaction of all that such was really the case. The right eye was closed, while the left remained staring open. The nerve on the right side responded to pressure, while those on the left remained dead. One side of the body was rigid while the other was inrt. Through ail this the patient never uttered a sound. Having sufficiently established the existence of this dual ctatetha professor pressed simultaneously upon both of the girl's eyes, when she fell back on the pillow like a lump or lead. The final experiment consisted in watting the lethargic girl. This was easily done by breathing sharply in her far. '. Sue started up, glanced about her in a dazed way, and then realizing luai suu a oi mul uiwwu hnfnra a nrowd of lovial medicai students, sb wized her scattered garments and disappeared from the scene with astonishing rapidity. The attendant wheeled out theotb?r patient. who calmly continued her hysterical sleep. Paris ISdition iew xorc oeraia.

During the visit thegenUernwn also suygmited that the policy to be pursued towsrd the south should be a conciliatory one. Scott acted as the spokesman for the party, and dwelt at length upon the importance of se lecting a southern man fur a cubinet posi tion. He said the south a a see t ion whs the representative o diversitied in tenets, and proSierity there matit like pnsierity for many of the industries of the north; that its people had largely overcome the prejudices engendered by the war, and were now ruady to-concede that capital atid enterprise from the north were not to be ignored as factors u southern development. "Tim result," said Mr. Scott in substance, "is tlist mituy of our prominent Democrats and prominent Repub licans are working hand in hin.i, combining their capital and their energy, an.l eud-javor-ing to bring oul of tiio hus-ue-is stHjjation that followed tho war a new south, lots change iu sentiment, bun during the latter days of Republican nii, has txen continued under the present administration, and we, as Republicans, are specially anxious that it shall be encouraged by your aiiiiiiniairation.

Mr. Scott then referred to Congressman Goff in term of high eulogy, saying that he represented toe state in the national congress with great distinc tion, and no appointment ot a cabinet officer would give so much genuine satisfac tion both to Republicans and to Democrats as that of Goff. They were not here to urge such an appointment, for they believed that the president should ba left to make such selections entirely from bis own judgment, and in speaking of iioff they wished to be understood as simply calling Harrison's attention to certain facts connect ed with him, hoping that m.tture reflection would result in the selection of their favor ite. Harrison made no reply to the appeal, but turned the conversation upon Virginia in dustry and products, and the conversation became general. Before leaving the city the visitors said they would t satisfied if tbe administration was conservative m its policy and firm in appointing Republicans only to offl'To. "We want no mongrels," said E titer Hart, "and X think Harrison fully understands ua on that point. " It is stated that Airs. Harrison has formal ly appointed a private secretary in the per son of Mis Florence Miller, daughter of Harrison's former law partner. Since the electioo Mrs. Harrison's correspondence has been increasing rapidly, an! her fetters now average a score or more a day. Finding it impossible to answer all of these herself, she has appointed Miss Miller as private secre tary. The yoting lady is abmt 1 years of age, very attractive in manner and w-u ed ucated. She will accompany the Harrison family to Washington and be a member of the Whits House family.

Professor Woodward took issue with this position, and declared that Professor Brook's must Ih lamentably ignorant of the purpose, scope and actual results of manun.1 training. Dr. Brooks bad awertei that a boy would get more mental discipline if turned loose alone in a shop fitted with tools than if under a skillful teacher. That statement.

Sny ' der, of Kantta City An Acquaintance ' Formed on a Visit West Troves a Case of Love at First Sight, the Course of Which Rons Smoothly to Happy Vnlo.i. Springfield, Ills., Dm. 28. A charmin? little romance of a few months' duration ter minated Inst night in a happy wed i ma at Ht. PiuPs Episcopal church. Last summer MisB Olive Ojlesby, eldest daughter of bov- eruor Olosbv, visited the wast to attend the wedding of a school-friend. In attend ance on the joyous occasion was a man of modest but distinguished bearing. It was a case of love at first sight. The modent but courteous gentleman was introduced to the demure young lady from Hpringfleld as Chester Allen bnyder, of Kaunas t.ity, and sbe to him as the daughter of the governor of Illinois. Mr. Allen was a widower and father of a little daughter. Misw Olesby returned to her home at the Illinois executive mansion, but her heart was iu the keeping of another. Cupid was not idle and the cor rtispondenee that ensued drew the couple closer and closer together. The old proverb appears to have been set at naught on this occasion. The course of true love ran smooth, and lat night at 8 o'clock Chester A. Snyder, of Kansas City, and Miss Olive Oglesby were married at St. Paul's Episcopal church of this city. In ad dition to those in attendance from Spring-H-'ld there were present many guests from Chicago, Lincoln, Elkhart. Decatur and va rious parts of the state. The ceremony was performed by the Rt Rev. George F. Sey mour, bishop of the Spring flld Episcopal diocese, assitd by the rector, the Rev. Frederick W. Taylor. The bvtt man on the occasion wis Alex ander Fraser, of Kmsas City. Tne bride maids were MinS Louise Fehclte -lesby, B ster of the bride, and Mis It-die V-Mtoigi r holz, of Decatur. Tbe maids m att-m Imce were Miss Florence Glandin, of Louisville; Miss Lulie Rolierta, of Oid Mission, Mich. ; Mis Grae Keflocg, of Chicago, and Mis. Alice Bunn, Miss Lou'se Bla-k ani Miss Sophie Fowler, of Springfield The ushers were Messrs. Robert Oglesby, brother of the bride; Hiram tJ. Keays, of Eikhnrt ; Johu W. Black, of .Springfield, and Williim 8. Gaylord, W. 1). Gienry, and Marvin Hughitt, of Chicago. The bride was charmingly dresd in a gar ment of sole gr.inite, en traine. over a petti coat draped with mousswibie do sole and Valenciennes. She was adorned with gar lands of natural Roman hyacinthe and wore a beautiful necklace and ornament of dia monds, the gift of the bridegroom. The maids in attendance wore gowns of moos- seline de sole wi h corsages of different materials and carried bunches of roses, bound with streamers of ribbons to fans of white gauze and pearl, the gifts of the bride. The two maids of honor were both dressed in gowns of white silk mull with sashes of moire and tulle veils, and each carried bunches of pinks and maiden-hair ferns. The presents were costly and numerous. Alter the wedding a reception wa ten dered tbe happy couple at tbe executive mansion, which was attended by the state officers and their families, the governor's stalf in uniform, and friends of the bride and groom from all over the country. Among the guests present from other cities were: Governor -elect and Mrs. Fifer, of Blnotningtm; Mr. and Mrs. Kiwin Wilson, of Kansv City; Mi-. A. J. Snyder and wife and daugb'er Ldiie, of Kansas Citv; Mr. and Mrs. J. Feddicord, Mr. an i Mrs. V. P. Brandon, Mr. and Mrs. L.

At the close of the reception at the man sinn tbe nuwly married pair left on the mid night tram for New York, going by way of Chicago. From Nw York they will go to California to spend the winter, after which their future uome will l.e in Kansas City, where Mr. Snyder is largely engaged in the knowledge of literature, chemistry or botany, tiian to provide him with competent teach ers.

Many people bare the Impression that Deadwood, is Dakota, was bo called on ac count of the lawlessness which prevailed in the early days, but tne name originated rrom th superabundance of dead timber caused presumably by Indian campfires on tbe mountains and along the stream above the city, and was so called by the miners who first discovered gold in 1875.

Chance for Another Monkey and Parrot Time In the Senate. Indianapolis, Iec. The conference Of Democratic senators and representatives- elect of tbe general assetnblr, mch was to nave been held hete yesterday, was declared off for some inexplicable reason, and only balf a doz-n senators appeared, they having failed to receive notice of the postponement. Those in the city yesterday admitted that a plan for organising the senate has been practically agreed upon, and that Robert son's right to pres.de over the body will not be recognised under any circumstances. The plan agreed upon is to ignore Robertson when be is introduced as the presiding offi cer by the auditor of state by electing a Democratic member as president pro tern. The Democrats, being in a majority, their oGcer will be able to organize the body with out Republican rotes, and the Democratic mucus nominees will be elected an J metalled. Tbe question of occupying the pre siding officer's chair will be one for Robertson and the president pro tem. to settle, and this may resolve itself Into one of muscle Tbe Repub- I ucans are very inuinant at wnnt rney term the contempt ated- outrage, and it is not im probable that a Republican senate may be organized. As tbe governor will be a Re publican he could refuse to recognize the Democratic senate thus organized, and there is talk of the auditor of state refusing to honor warrants for the members' pay unless signed by Robertson. The prospects for a row are first class, as both parties are be coming very much interested in the situa tion. VESSELS LOST AT SEA, Five Shins That Mailed and Have Not Since Been Heard uf.

Another Interminable Tariff Debate Prom-i-cd in the Honte. Washington City, Dec. 28. Tbe Demo crats of the house are preparing themselves fur another discussion of the tar'ff before this congress expires The clerk to the ways and mean committer, Mr. Talbott, bas been set to work to et up information relating to tbe senute bill, part of which is for tbe use of tbe senators in attacking tbe bill between the 2d and tbe 2Ht of January, and part for use in the house a little Inter on. Preparations are Bctive for a determined fight upon the bill in tbe senate within the limited time fixed for debate. H me Democratic senators are sanguine enough to think that they can defeat the measure in tbe senate by a square vote. This bope is not, however, very gen erally entertained, and tbe Democrats in the house expect certainly to debate the bill there. No meeting or conference of tbe ways and means committee has been held to con sider the poi icy to be followed, except that informally the Democrats have come to the understanding that when the bill comes to tbe house they will have, to discuss it.

The court will re ceive the grand jury report on Monday, when the indictments against Shaw, Picss nerr, Taylor, and Corbett will be handed in. A Chtrago Doctor In a Bad I5ox. Chicago, Dec. 2S.
