The house then proceeded to the consideration of the Alabama contested election case of McDuffie vs. Turpin. Mr. Comatock opened the discussion with an argument in favor of the claim of the contestant. Mr. Crisp presented the claims of the contestee. Pending further debate, the house adjourned. A SENSATIONAL REPORT. Washington, June 3.—Among the memorial and other papers presented in the senate and referred were resolutions from the Louisiana legislature, extending thanks to congress and the president for the relief afforded the sufferers from the recent Mississippi floods. The senate bill for preventing the adulteration of food and drugs was reported and placed on the calendar. A resolution was offered by Edmunds for an investigation by the committee on fisheries into the management of the fish commissioners office. , After some debate the resolution went over until tomorrow. Mr. Blair from the committee on education and labor reported the senate bill to provide for abligatory attendance at school of children in Alaska, and the senate bill (without rocommendtion) to organize bureaus of information relating to employments, occupation and means of livelihood was placed on the calendar. The silver bill was then taken and Pugh addressed the senate. His speech was largely devoted to a criticism of the tariff bill. At the conclusion of Pugh’s speech the silver bill was temporarily laid aside and the following senate hills taken from the calendar and passed:    To amend a sec tion of the revised statutes so as to make it read, “any person who withdraws any fermented liquor from any hogshead, barrel, keg or other vessel upon which the proper stamp has not been affixed for th<! purpose of bottling the same, or who carries on a business of bottling fermented liquor in any brewery or other place in which fermented liquor is made or upon acy premises having communication with a brewery or warehouse, shall be liable to a fine of five hundred dollars and the property used in such bottling or business shall he liable to a forfeiture; provided, however, this section shall not be construed to prevent Hie withdrawal and transfer of fermented liquors from any of the vats in any brewery by way of pipe line or other conduit to another building or place for the sole purpose of bottling the same, pipe line or conduit to be constructed and operated under such rules and regulations as shall la* proscribed by the commissioner of internal revenue, subject to tho approval of the secretary of the treasury and all locks and seals prescribed be provided by tho commissioner of internal revenue at the expense of the United States; provided, further, that the tax imposed by section 3339 of tho Revised Statutes be paid on all fermented liquor removed from tho brewery to the bottling house by means of pipe or conduit at the time of such removal, bv cancellation and defacement, by the collector of tin* district. of the number of stamps, denoting tile tax on fermented liquors t hus removed. The stamps thus cancelled and defaced shall be disposed of and accounted for iii the manner directed by the commissioner of internal revenue with tin1 approval of the secretary cf the treasury and any violation of the rules and regulations hereafter prescribed by the commissioner of internal revenue, with the approval of the secretary of the treasury in pursuance of these provisions he subject to the penalties above provided by this section. Every owner, agent or superintendent of any brewery or bottling bouse who removes or connives at the removal of any fermented liquor through pipe line or conduit without payment of the tax thereon, or who attempts to defraud the revenue as above shall forfeit all liquors made by and for him and all utensils and apparatus used for the making of tho same." To provide' fen* the exportation of fermented liquor in bond without payment of internal revenue tax. The bill provides that, from and after January, 1891, fermented liquor may bo removed from the place'of manufacture e>r steerage* for export. to a foreign country without payment of tax in sue*h packages anti under such regulations and upon giving such notices, entries, bonds and e)tlu*r security as the* commissioner elf internal revenue with the* approval of tin* secretary e>f the* treasury, may from time tee time' prescribe; and no drawback eef tax shall be allowed on fermente'd liqueur exported em and after January I, 1891, unless entered fen* exportation prior tee such date. House' bill tee authorize* the president to cause* certain lands heretofore withdrawn from the market fen* reservoir purposes be' restored to the' public domain, subject tee the* entry of such homestead law. with certain re*strictions (with amendments). (The bill refers to the lands at the* headwaters of the* Mississippi and St. Croix rivers in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and eef the Chippewa and Wisconsin rivers in Wisconsin). The* silver bill was again taken up and Farwell addressed the* senate. Hee declared himself in full accend with thee purposes of the* bill, but sa it! hee was in favor of geeing still further. He would use Cpi* money all the silver offered, and not a stipulated sum. as provided feer in tho bill, and he would e*oin it at its market value'. If the price* eef silver should advance to a par with geeld (as the* friends eef the bill claimed it would) then free coinage would come as a matter of course. What objection could there be, lie asked, to putting intee silver dollars one hundred cents worth of silver. Two others things wore necessary. The national bank system should be preserved and the sub-treasury system abolished. When these measures were adopted the people could get all the money they want. The issuing by tho government (under the pending bill) of treasury notes with silver bullion behind them as security, furnished a circulation that was absolutely safe and could not be redundant, and would still supply the monthly retirement of national bauk currency. The national bank system should be perpetuated bv substituting other than United States bonds to secure circulation. The people would then utilize all the best bonds of the country and would procure such circulation as the business of the country demanded. The treasury notes to be issued under the bill would add largely to the circulating medium. He did not think that it was within the providence of congress to determine the amount of circulating medium, but some law. like the national banking law. should be the means by which the people could determine that patter for themselves. His object in favoring the abolition of the substitute treasury was to have all the money of the people in the channels of business as it was before the passage of the independent treaty act in 1840. The money now in the sub treasuries would. if adopted in the national banks, add largely to the volume of currency for business purposes. He would not advocate the deposit of government revenues with national banks without adequate security for the whole amount deposited. Another reason for the change would bf that the money would be handled by the national banks without any cost to the government: and the saving thus affected would bo an aggregate of several hundred thousand dollars per annum. He did not favor a repeal of the independent treaty act for the purpose of benefiting the banks. At the close of Farewell’s speech, and without further action, the senate adjourned. The House. (ashington, June 3.—In the hops*, " Parker, the senate MB was the * South Carolina’s Registration and Election Laws Declared Unconstitutional. Washington, June 3.—The majority report in the ease of Miller vs. Elliott, from the .Seventh South Carolina district, was submitted to the house committee on elections to-day. The report is somewhat sensational, in that it declares that the entire South Carolina registration and election laws are unconstitutional. The basis for this declaration is that the state law imposes a number of restrictions upon the exercise of the right of suffrage, which an* in conflict with the state constitution. The report also states a number of negroes have been compelled by poverty, while awaiting the maturing of their cotton crops, to negotiate their registration certificates to the traders, who immediately sent them to political headquarters with the result that the negroes are permanently disfranchised. The report recites the fact that in certain precincts the ballot boxes were separated in case of each office; and that the voters were deceived by the intentional shifting of the boxes, so that judges of election were able to throw out all of the ballots cast in the wrong boxes. There, was, also, says the report, evidence of ballot-box stuffing. Summing up, it is found, taking the position most favorable to the sitting members, that contestant Miller had a majority of 757, while if the law is strictly followed, his majority will reach 1148. Wilson, of Missouri, will prepare a minority report. GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. The Tariff Bill Consideration. Washington, June 3.—The sub-committee of the republicans of the pilate finance committee to-day continued the consideration of the tariff bill. The items iii the wood schedule were examined and passed and then the sugar schedule was laid over for the present, it being deemed best to await the return of Senators Morrill and Sherman before taking up a subject of such importance. The subcommittee also passed over without action the tobacco, wines and agricultural schedules, which with sugar occupy twenty pages of printed bill. The Clayton-Breckenridge Canc. Washington, June 3.—The sub committee of the house committee on elections which has had under consideration the question of taking further testimony in the Clayton-Breekenridge contested election case, has derided the question practically in the negative. The superintendent of census to-day issued an order forbidding supervisors and enumerators from making public any {information gained in the performance of their duties. Attention is called to the law on this subject. They Request Safety Appliances. Waiiington, June 3.—Congressman Henderson, of Iowa, introduced, to-day, resolutions signed by a large number of railroad employes of Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska, asking for the passage of the bill requiring the use of safety appliances by railroads. Pension Bill Conferees Disagree. Washington, June 3.—The conferees on the general pension bill to-day voted to report their disagreement to their respective houses. The service pension feature was t he only one of importance upon which the conferees could not igree. John S. Bell Dismissed. Washington, June 3.—John 8. Bell, hief of the secret- service division of the treasury, having failed to comply with the request for his resignation, has been dismissed. Bell was appointed during .ira last administration. Wm    _ RUSSELL HARRISON BANQUETED. MYSTIC MASONRY. The President's Son and Party at Sherman, Texas. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.! Si i KUM an, June 3.—Russell Harrison md a part y, consisting of representatives >f the press, in all about forty, representing three hundred newspapers, arrived here yesterday at noon. They were met the depot by a committee of business men and driven to the Binkley hotel, when* an elegant luncheon was served. if ter which they again took carriages and were shown the business and educational facilities oLthe city. They also rode over >ur electric street ear systems which are the finest in the state. At ten p. rn. an elegant banquet was tendered them, where ehampaigne and eloquence flowed like water. Many complimentary speeches were made bv the democrats and republicans both to Russell Harrison and our president, and the utmost good fooling prevailed. Mr. Harrison responded to the toast “Sherman." in which he repeated the sentiments Jay Gould expressed while here not long ago, that Sherman wa* situated iii the garden spot of Texas and in commercial importance was second to none in the state. After the banquet they wore taken to their ear very much delighted. THE OREGON ELECTION. ings were wrecked.

Timmons, postmaster of Idaville, Iud., writes; “Electric Bitters has done more for me than all other medicines combined, for that bad feeling arising from Kidney and Liver trouble." John Leslie, farmer and stockman, of same place, says:    “Find    Electric    Bitters    to be the best Kidney and Liver medicine: made me feel like a new man." J. W. Gardner, hardware merchant, same town, says:    “Electric    Bitters is just the thing for a man who is all run down and don't care whether he lives or dies; he found new strength, good appetite and felt just like he had a new lease on life Only 50c a bottle at George C.

Excursion Tickets To Denver via C. B. A Q- Oast (oias June after June 27 till [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Ottumwa, June 4.—The Grand Lodge of Iowa Masons began its forty-seventh annual communication in this city at the Ottumwa opera house to-day. The attendance was large, nearly four hundred delegates being called to order. The grand master’s address was delivered at the morning session, taking up all of the morning hour. He said that six new lodges had been formed, to-wit: One at Cincinnati, in Appanoose county; one at Albia, in Monroe county; one at Gowrie, in Webster county; one at Dennison, in Crawford county: one at Sioux City, in Woodbury county, and one at University Place, in Polk county. Polar Star lodge No. 113, Banner lodge No. 437, Jeptha lodge No. 201 had all made removals. The only portion of the address which commanded any particular interest was that referring to “Cerneau Masonry.” After reviewing the case as it passed through the various courts he said: Why, let me ask, were these suits, and especially the last one, instituted? If, as claimed by the parties plaintiff to these actions, they honestly and in good faith believed the grand lodge had exceeded its authority in the action taken, and the courts had jurisdiction to remedy the same, why was not the first case tried at the time set therefor, and to which they had assented? Why dismiss it after putting the grand lodge to all the expense of preparing for trial, and then immediately, on the same day, bring another action of the same nature and for the same purpose ? Add to this the further fact that during the pending of the injunction this jurisdiction was litterally Hooded with pamphlets and leaflets setting forth the origin and antiquity of Cerneau Masonry. And when it is remembered that one of the individual plaintiffs in each of these cases, on the loth day of June last, as commander-in-chief of the Grand Consistory of Iowa, issued his circular (which is printed in the appendix hereto), advising and encouraging disobedience to the commands of the Grand Lodge, you will not fail to discover the motive for the action taken on the part of these plaintiffs, as herein set forth. What action, let me ask, could these erring brethren have taken that would more fully express their disrespect and contempt for the action taken by the Grand Lodge? At the time Past Grand Master Black mar issued his note of warning, under tile title of “Impending Danger,” I was fearful the picture presented was overdrawn; but one year’s close observation of and experience with the methods adopted by the leaders and managers of Cerneau Masonry in this jurisdiction has served to convince me that the picture was largely under drawn and without repeating, I fully and heartily agree with and endorse all he said in his annual address on the subject. Cerneau and York Rite Masonry cannot peacefully and harmoniously occupy the same territory and each maintain their independence. They are not consonant, and from the very nature of things never can be. Either there must be no Cerimans, or measurably all must be such, if we would have tranquility and peace, While I know nothing of the esoteric work of Cerneau Masonry, yet I do know something of the effect of its introduction within this jurisdiction. I know that in some places where it has gained a footing it has produced discord, strife, and contention among members of the craft, and has destroyed the peace, harmony, and fraternal feeling existing prior to its introduction; and this is notably so in some of our larger cities. I also know that in some instances its members, all of whom must be Master Masons before they can receive its degrees, claim that their obligations taken therein are more binding than in symbolic Masonry, and that consequently they owe a higher allegiance to that organization than to the Grand Lodge and its requirements. I further know that in one instance it has been the cause of the disintegration of one of our msst prosperous and vigorous lodges. Possessing also, as I do, the evidence that the highest officer at the time cf this organization within our jurisdiction officially encouraged and advised defiance to and rebellion against the lawful mandates of the Grand Lodge, have no hesitency in saying that the time has arrived for define, specific and effectual legislation on this question, to the end that this annoying element of discord may be effectually and briefly eliminated from our midst. The grand secretary, T. S. Parvin, (one of the oldest members of the fraternity in Iowa) made his report showing a great many points toonumerous and of too exhausting a nature to allow* of a detailed publication. The grand treasurer’s report sliowrs £35,748,54 received duriug the year; a general fund on nand of £16,605.85; and grand charity fund of $1,121.74 oh hand. The afternoon session was taken up with routine business. Among those present were G. B. Van Saun. of Adar Falls: E. C. Blackmar. of Burlington; Father Schreiner, of Mt. Pleasant. A parade was anticipated for this morning but owing to the rain it was postponed. JUMPED FROM A TRAIN. A Doomed City. Council Bluffs. June 3.—The village of Loveland seems doomed. Last Saturday night a cloud burst carried away a number of buildings. One family was rescued from tree tops the following morning, while one of them was swept away. The storm which prevailed over this section last night completes the demolition of the village. The river, which was swollen by the previous storm, overflowed from last night’s rajn, and carried everything before it. Nothing is left of the‘hamlft save the houses which stood on high ground. No loss of life is reported thus far. THE BILL WILL PASS. LOYAL TO BISMARCK. Germans in London Determined to Give Him a Grand Ovation. The Ex-Chancellor Annoyed—Preparing to Receive American Riflemen at Berlin—Gladstone’s Explanations —Other Foreign Notes. A Letter From Senator Wilson Referring to the Original Package Measure. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, June 3.—In a letter President Aylesworth, of Drake University, received to-day Senator Wilson expresses the belief that the original package bill will pass the house, but adds by way of warning:    “I    tnink    it    will    be well for Iowa temperance people and those who believe in promoting the moral conditions of society to give early and emphatic expression to Iowa members of the house of representatives, not that I have any doubt as to the position that our members will occupy in regard to the bill, but all such things help to give tone to a movement of this character.” THE DES MOINES RIVER LANDS. The Hearing in the Celebrated Suit Com. ineuced at Fort Dodge. Des Moines, June 3.—The hearing in the suit of the United States to settle the ownership o the Des Moines river lands began before Judge Shires at Fort Dodge to-day. The defense filed a demurer admitting the allegations of plaintiff but claiming it was not sufficient ground for suit. If the demurer is sustained the land companies title will be good for all time. A large mass of evidence was submitted by the defense in the shape of reports made before the congressional committees on the, river land matter. Attorney Clark, for the plaintiff, occupied the day with argument on a motion to set aside the evidence as indirect and incompetent and will continue to-morrow. The court room is crowded with anxious settlers. It is thought the rase will be submitted Friday. A PRETTY FACE. Ex-Deputy County Auditor C. B. Kauffman Elopes With a Divorced Charmer. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines,, June 3.—It is currently report that ex-Deputy County Auditor C. B. Kauffman has skipped, leaving his wife and family, and taking with him Mrs, Nellie Blair, the divorced wife of William Blair. Kauffman resigned his position in the auditor’s office about a month ago to take a position a mortgage company, and it was thought that he had gone east on business, but it is said that he went away with the woman on Saturday last. There is no shortage reported in his accounts, and the only reason assigned is infatuation. The woman is pretty and has turned men’s heads before. Ft. Madison Accommodation Train. Ft. Madison, June 3.—The recent changes in the time table of the Santa Fe does not suit our merchants, who desire to hold the outside trade. Last evening a number of merchants and citizens called upon J. S. Byrne, assistant ticket and passenger agent and General Manager Robinson who came in his special train and made complaint of the poor accommodation. Mr. Robinson assured them that a passenger coach would be attached to the freight train arriving here from the east at IO o’clock a. rn. This coach will return at 2 p. rn., thus giving visitors four hours in the city. He also promised to see that an accommodation train would be run in from the west as soon as practicable. He was satisfied that we should have two more local passenger trains. The Industrial Blind Home. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, June 3.—The commission to select a site for the Industrial Home for the adult blind started this morning on an expedition to visit each of the many cities bidding for the institution. They are: Missouri Valley, McGregor, Waverly, Clarion, Mason City, Charles City, Humboldt, Muscatine, Oskaloosa, Knoxuille, Carroll, Logan, Newton and Audubon. The Binding; Twine Trust Broken. Mason City, la., June 3.—Agents here have been instructed to sell binding twine of various kinds at an average increase of four cents below the prices of last year. This is believed to indicate that the binding twine trust which imposed subh burdens on farmers of this and other states has been broken. This reduction of prices will save many thousands of dollars to Iowa farmers alone. London. June 3.—Prince Bismarck is exceedingly annoyed at the manifest determination of the German residents of London to make a demonstration in his honor on the occasion of his forthcoming visit to the English capital, and will endeavor to evade a public welcome at the hands of his countrymen, if possible. It is understood that a large sum of money has already been subscribed by prominent Germans in London to defray the expense of what they intend shall be a reception benefiting the occasion of the visit of the master spirit in the creation of the German empire, and it will be difficult for the ex-chancellor to escape an ovation at their hands. The news from Germany during the past few days is of the most contradictory kind. Prince Bismarck, according to one source of information, has been Sternly warned by the kaiser that if he does not desist from public expressions of opinion on German policy the consequences will be serious. Through the same channel comes a charge against the ex-chancellor's son, Herbert, of fomenting opposition to the emperor's plans among officials of the petty German courts. These alarmist reports are offset by an apparantly well-founded statement that Prince Bismarck is about to start for England. This would give color to a rumor recently circulated that the old statesman was to be intrusted by the kaiser with a special diplomatic mission, first to Loudon to secure England's adhesion to the Central European alliance against Russia, and then to Paris to induce the French republic to remain neutral until its only possible ally would be crushed. If the ex-chancellor does not come to London his visit will certainly have some such significance. The statements made yesterday, one in parliament by Sir James Ferguson, under foreign secretary in Lord Salisbury’s government, the other by M. Fabre, Canadian agent in Paris, show how unreal the Newfoundland fisheries agitation is. Both the English and the French governments have found after careful investigation that there is not a word of truth in the Newfoundlanders’ stories about the landing of French marines and sailors. On these stories the whole agitation was founded. M. Fabre pronounces the whole thing a mere squabble between rival fishermen and says the majority of the Newfoundlanders are satisfied with the present state of things and anxious to sell bait to the French or any one else willing to buy. The French ministry has had many reminders of the fact that Germany, through its clever but erratic young emperor, has outstripped the republic in the race for tho good will of the working classes. The socialists call the present regime a government of the petite bourgeoisie, and even conservative workingmen point to Germany as affording France an example that should be followed. The ministry has decided to prepare a plan for dealing with the labor movement, and as a preliminary step M. Ribot, the foreign minister, has sent a circular to all representatives of France abroad to collect and forward to him statistics as to the condition of the workingmen in the countries to which they are accredited. Legislation will be shaped on these reports. The order of Minister of the Interior Constans prohibiting all intermediary betting agencies is a concession to the same class. Gladstone has been put to some trouble explaining his reference to Mitchellstown in his recent Siberian utterance and his statement that the time was ripe for “considering the disestablishment of the Scotch church.” The old man, who is an adept as an explainer, shows that he did not say exactly what he was reported to have said and that the words he actually used were not very emphatic nor exact, but a trifle roundabout. That will satisfy his followers and he does not care to satisfy the tories. Great preparations are being made for the reception and entertainment of the American rifle team, which is expected in Berlin the second week in June. After the rifle meeting is over it is proposed to take them on a pleasure excursion down the Rhine and to other beautiful and attractive spots in Germany. against a loss for the previous year of £75,000. There will be a board meeting in Philadelphia to-morrow, when the election of officers will take place. A DESTRUCTIVE CYCLONE. A Nebraska Town Reported Swept Away and a Number of People Killed.

A six months old baby was instantly killed and the mother and other child are thought to be fatally injured. _ A GIRL’S DEAD BODY FOUND. Can it Be That of Missing Kila Cordelle, of Industry, Illinois? [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Carthage, 111., June 3.—The body of an unknown young woman was found on on a lonely island known as Curtis’ Point, seven miles above Canton, Missouri, Sunday. It was dressed in a wine-colored cashmere wrapper, silk stockings, with white stripes. 21.* button shoes, and finely textured underwear.

Mrs. Last, the wife of an English paper maker, happens to drop a bluing bag which she holds in her hands into a vat of pulp. Site is frightened and says nothing about the accident; lier husband storms when he finds that the paper has a peculiar tinge, but the astonished workman can throw no light upon the matter. Thereupon he sends the paper to London with instructions that it be closed out at any price. The public, however, accept itasa purposed novelty. It becomes the rage; orders pour in for more of the same sort. The wife confesses, the husband forgives her—and well hi* may, for his fortune is made. This is the very simple origin of tinted paper.—Illustrated! American. Iowa W. C. T. U.

R. & N. train about two miles south of this city and made good his escape. He was being transferred from Fort Madison to the insane ward at Anamosa, and as the train was approaching the city asked permission of the guard to go to the water closet. He locked the door and at once hoisted the window and climbing out on the platform, jumped, the train beiug at full speed. His feet were ironed at the time.

One of the swell doctors in.town says that it is the most wonderful aid to perfect health. “I masticate my food very thoroughly at dinner,” he says, “and make sure to have my family or friends entertain me with bright talk and plenty of fun. Afterdinner it is understood that I am going to rizzle. How do I do it ? I retire to my study, and, having darkened the room, I light a cigar, sit down and perform the operation. How to describe it I don’t know, but it is a condition as nearly like sleep as sleep is like (lect h. It consists in doing absolutely nothing. I close my eyes and try to stop all action of the brain. I think of nothing. It only takes a little practice to be able to absolutely stifle the brain. In that delightful condition I remain at least ten minutes, sometimes twenty. That is the condition most helpful to digestion, and it is that which accounts for the habit animals have of sleeping after eating. I would rather miss a fat fee than that' ten minutes’ rizzle every day.”—Chatter. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Amboy, IU.. June 3.—With rosy cheeks, lightly closed eyes and gently heaving breast, sleeps pretty Grace Gridley in her little bedroom in the house of her father Mr. J. Gridley, one of Am boys prominent business men. To gaze upon her peaceful slumber one would think she was about to awaken from a peaceful night's rest. Oil the 15th day of March last Miss Gridley, who is a well developed and healthy young lady of nineteen years, retired to rest iii lier usual health. The next morning she did not appear at the usual breakfast hour and af ten a while her mother went nj) to her room to call her. Upon entering the chamber Mrs. Gridley found h**r daughter sleeping in the manner described above. Attempting to awaken her she discovered her daughter was sleeping mort* soundly than sin* at first supjiosed. As a loving mother is ever prompted ti* do she said Well, let Grace sleep, she will bo bettor for it." Miss Grace did sleep on through the day and when supper-time came it was found impossible to awaken her. Becoming greatly alarmed her parents sent for a physician who examined the ease with the utmost astonishment. Different treatments \v<*rt' tried to dispel the somnific trance but all in vain. The beautiful girl, her coral lips parted in a half smile, slumbered on and on without the slightest flutter of eye-lash. After sleeping about a week the nurse who has always watched by lier bedside, left the room, momentarily. When she returned slit' found tin* sleeping girls bod empty. Greatly frightened she hastened into an adjoining room where she found Miss Grace sitting in an easy chair as sound asleep as **v«*r. In lier lap half opY'ii lay a small bible. It is certain that the girl had slightly aroused from Imr sleep aud arising from ln*r bed. had secured the bibb* and gum* into the other room, where sin' had scarcely seated herself when sip- again dropped into tho strange sleep continued in her peaceful ever since. Numbers of physicians have been consulted and brought to examine the peculiar ease, but they all look wise, shake their heads and are profoundly puzzled. No attempt is made to diagnosis the ea*e and not very much hope has been vouchsafed the sorrowing parents and friends of the girl. Among tin* many surmises that have been offered as to the cause of bringing on the protracted sleep there is one that is liniqui* aud in support of which is brought tin* incident of the girls arousing up and attempting to read the Bible. Just previous to the girl’s slumbers a large religion* revival had been going on in Amboy, which was attended by much religious fervor. It is thought that Miss Grindley had become so wrougnt up over the meetings that the mental excitement caused a prostration of her entire nervous system. This is only a conjecture but is as worthy an one as the many other t.heorms presented. Miss Gridley has. strange to say, lost but little flesh and appears to rest as calmly and easily as a child in gentle slumber. Tin* beating of her heart and respiration are normal and lier body is naturally warm. Food is given in liquid form, but not in very large quantities. After being placed in her mouth the food passes to the stomach without any apparent effort, of swallowing. What the final result of the strange sleep may be no one eau surmise and the many anxious and loving friend must await until lh* who reigns over all shall determine. She has slumbers A Boy Hero. Omaha. June 3.—The heroism of a boy named Mike llaley, prevented a wreck of the Union Pacific Flyer, between here and South Omaha, at a place called Summit. Young Haley saw two men unlock a switch and turn it. Ile ran to South Omaha and notified the trainmen just as the train, which consisted of twelve coaches, was pulling out. There was an unusually large number of passengers on board and had the plot not been discovered tin* loss of life would have been great. A Court Against Itself. From the Iowa State Register. Judges are fallible like other men, even if they sit upon the supreme bench of the United States. Mr. Huston, a lawyer of Burlington, has called attention to some conflicting d(*eisions of the supreme court on the principles involved in the recent original package ease. Of course courts have a right to change a former ruling and they sometimes find it necessary to do so. But where they do squarely reverse a previous ruling it would bo interesting to know the grounds on which they do so. It is usually assumed that the last ruling represents the lat(*st conviction and judgment on any question. In the original package case this ruling is so directly opposed to a ruling made a few years before that it would bt* very interesting to have the court point out tin* fallacy in one or the other of these decisions. Mr. Huston in his article published elsewhere rt*f('rs to a Ny*vv Orleans ease passed upon by the supreme court, in which it held that property imported from another stat** becomes a part of the mass of the property of tin* state to which it has passed as soon as it reaches its destination, even though it. is still in the hands of the original owners. In the Iowa case tin* court lichi to tin* very oppose*. It declared that such property did not become a part of the general mass of property «»f tin* state until a sale had taken place, and so was not subject to state laws until then. In the New Orleans case, some Pittsburg men shipped coal to New* Orleans. Before.their agent there had sold the coal or even unloaded it. the state att('inpt(*d to levy a tax upon it. The owners of the coal showed that, they were citizens of Pennsylvania and had already paid taxes upon the coal be-for('it had left the slate. But tin*supreme court lu'ld that although the coal was in the ‘"original package” (tin* barges), it had becomma part of the general mass of property of tin* state, anti was subject to state laws. So tim tax was allowed t«» stand. But in tin* Iowa cast* the court holds that lim imported property does not become a part of tin* general mass of property of tin* state until it has been sold by the consignee. There is quite a difference for somebody to explain. If the supreme court’s Lit«*st ruling is to be taken as wis** and just, it would bo, interesting to have an opinion now on the opinion in the New Orleans ease. Probably in a few years the court may be ready to declare that tin' present opinion is wrong, and some ruling entirely opposite may be givdn. But such iitlife under government such a* ours. There must, somewhere be courts of final authority, and if they make mistakes the only remedy is to wait, till a better judgment n*-turns. or till men of different opinions take their places. Not for Fishing. From the Ih'troit Free Press. A citizen with a fish pole over his shoulder was going up one of our streets the other day when a stranger called out; “Have any luck ?” Fifty feet furt her on a second inquired; “An* they biting now?” At the next. corner a third stopped him and asked; “Say, whaUH you take fora ton of ’em?” A fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh had their say, and the eighth bore down upon him with: "I tell you. old fellow, you may laugh at the idea of spitting on your halt, but it firings luck and I can prove it.” “Speaking to me V” queried the man with the pole. “Certainly.” “What do you tak(* mo for?” “Why, you are going a-fishing.” “Who said so ?” •‘Haven't, you got a fish pole?” “Suppose I have ! If I saw you carrying a bar of soap home, would I argue that you were going to do the family washing ?” “But aren’t you going a-fishing?” “No, sir!

An old lady once told me that when she was a girl she visited a bride friend, and when the husband came home at night, tired, hungry, cold and cross, his young wife rushed into the hall and seized him as he struggled cut of his overcoat, devoured him'with kisses, to which he responded: “There, there, my dear; perhaps if you didn't want to kiss me quite so much I should want to kiss you more.” Of course, the man was a brute, but his brutality was founded upon a sound truth. The great trouble with woman under conditions of permitted love.is that she lavishes out of the vast treasure house of her affections a great deal more than the object can receive or assimilate. Her own powers of loving and being loved are so tremendously in excess of his that they weary, terrify and satiate him long before she has adequately expressed her own tenderness.—Mrs. Frank Leslie.
