A flue glass wntor set was thrown on the Moor and tram pled In pieces , n sot of silver spoons , n silver pickle castor nnd butter dish and some arti cles of clothing wore stolon. A number of pieces of silverware were loft , probably because - cause the robber had bis "bands full. The boldness of the man excited tbo ad miration of Mr. Russell nnd his wife , both of whom were at their place of bmluojs , Just across the street , all the tlmo tbo business was going on.

In the headboard of the bed Wbero I'etnrs was lying at the tlmo the shots were II red , and about olgbt inches above his head , were n couple of boies which showed whcro the bullets coming from the gun , which was stuck through the dour , had entered. It was evident that both snots had been aimed at tha prostrate man and had only missed him by a few Inches. The preliminary hearing of Savers and his accomplices Is sot for this morning , but it Is hardly likely to come off so soon as Peters is still too weak to uppo'ir In court against his assailants.

The mind was Inlluito. Mr. Chadwick tnlltcd of the touch in us of Christian science , Its love , truth and rlght- eousnobs ; Its dlvmo perfection and its good , which bud all boon demonstrated. Jesus uu- veiled It nil through the blblo. Its teachings demonstrated that all Ills were mental , not physical ; that all sickness was healed by ba- lluf in It. The treatment of the sick by pbvslcmns was deplored. Drugs killed and fastened the disease to its victims. The teachings of thi ) science In general was the purification of thought , morals , love , and 11 fo instead of death. At the conclusion of the reading of tha paper the subject was openly discussed and few members ol the club agreed with the opinions aud Ideas of Air. Cbudwlck.

It Is IjocomltifT generally known tli.it the slui- plost , safest , quickest nnd cheapen way of expediting a dolu\od patent is ti > enlist the sei vices of this Bureau.

"In fact , " continued tbo senator uilh a smile , "I feel more than half Inclined to re sign i ly plnco In tbo senate and uslc lor n situation wkb Tun Oin : nnd Examiner liu- \cau of Claims. " , An example of the celerity with willed the work of the bureau is pushed through Is oxhlullcd in n patent IMSO just concluded today. John A. Ouiiii of Spsaillsh , U. D. . Who had Invented tin Improved bill of faro , applied lor n p.itont on September 11 , 1M)1 ) , This case drifted leisurely through ttio routine of tlio circum locution ofllco until December "I , when he put It Into tbo hands of Tin : Bi.i : and Ux- amlner Buremi of Claims. December 'JO ( yesterday ) ho p.ild bis feu aud December UO ( todav ) tlio patent was granted. Thus n process that usually takes from three mouths to n year and which , In Mr. Uumi's case , lias already taken over tlirno months , was completed by the bureau In six days after it was first placed In Us charge nnd one day after the payment of tbo fee. It may bo remarked that In patent cases , unlike any other department of its work , tlio bureau icqulros the payment of foes In ad vance. This Is the practice of nll the rop- utublo patent attorneys In Washington and is favored by the patent of- ilco. In all tbe other branches of its business THE Bun and Examiner agency performs all preliminary work free and asks nothing for work of any kind unless successful. Ttio settler whoso land patent 13 delayed , tbo veteran who desires - sires a pension or an increase In 0:10 : , or the sufferer from Indian depredations c.in corn- * miind the besi , services of the bureau with the ccrtaintv tl-ut thorn will bo nothing to p ty unless the allowance of bis claim makes payment easy. 1m .cncrlsliiMt l > y Slt-rks One widow , who h i.l suffered ha ivy losses from the Indians , wrote to the oflleu yester day saying that s.ho had a just claim for * " ) ,000 , wliii-b bad been pending for years , but that she bad Impoverished herself in paying attorneys' fees mid had llnally been com pelled to ntomiso to pay 53 par cant of the claim if collected. She was discouraged and bad ceased to expect jtibtlco. If this swindled woman bad entrusted her claim to the burouu In the Hist place she would not had to pay n single cent until the govern ment had put up the money , and then she would not have had to pivo over If ) per cent at the outoldo and probably much less. Fortunately it was not too late for her to avail herself of the advantage. She could not got back ttio money she bad alrc.idv paid , but she could refuse to be robbed of anv more. The Indian Depredation act of Marcb 8 , 18)1 ) , expressly cancels all contricts pro- vioubly made with attorneys ami leaves claimants free to employ anybody they please nt rates limited by law. I'Yoin present Indications the act will bo utilized by almost all the sufferers it was Intended to benefit. Out of 0,81)0 ) depredation cases on lllo in the Indian bureau , U,5U ) have already been presented to the court of claims under ttie new law. Those , of course , are only a small part of thn number on tlio before the committee of tbo bouse nnd sonutq.and elsewhere , but It Is piobablo that before tbo legal limit expires almost all tbo claimants entitled to take their cases ooforo the court will h ivo exercised their rights. They inoirly need to romomoer the available tlino Is needed. Hoiiii Your Motion at Oner. After Marcb ! ) , lb9J , no more Indian depre dation claims can bo entered. It will not do , therefore , for the people who have suffnrcd damages to put off action ludclinitcly. The snftr course Is to wrlto to the bureau of claims at once and nuvo their cases put In trim for an early settlement. The same may ho said of ponslou claims. Tbe act of June " 27 , 1800. under which most of the pending claims nro being filed , duos not per mit the payment of arrears. Delays in filing application therefore entail n dead loss to ttio applicant. The man who puU off tiling his claim until lh'J3 ' , when ho might have Hied It in 1691. loses his pension for two years. Tun UBIJ and Examiner Buionu Is bundling thirty or forty pension cases n dnv , hut there aio thousands of vote inns entitled to bo on the rolls who have never yet applied. Soiuo of them , no doubt , have hesitated from n feeling that the process of sccuiiug n pension was slow and uncertain , uliilothoro would bo heavier expenses from the outset than n poor man could well moot. This Is entirely erroneous ns respects the now Inw mid Tun Hiu : nnd Examiner Bureau of Claims , under the act of Juno 'J7 , lbK ( ) , takes only n few months to obtain a pension , and tbo necessary evidence Is not hard to so- euro , wlulo nil the work roqulied Is done by the bureau , absolutely without churee , until the pension Is granted. Tno applicant has to merely forward bis evidence. Ho Is never troubled about fees , moderate charges being deducted fiom his first ponslun cheek. After that bo has merely to receive his payments from the government In full. . We think we value health ; but are all the time making sacrifices , not for it , but of it.
