LEAD AS A MEDICINE.
James Rake Takes About Four Pountls
of ^bot for Asthma, and Comes Near
Frankfort, Kt., Feb. 23.—Some weeks ago James Rake, a resident of this city, was suffering greatlj’ from an attack of asthma, and consulted one of his friends as to a remedy. The friend was a painter by profession, and believed in the curative powers of lead in an\- form. Bo he advised Rake to take a few doses of shot. Acting upon this advice Hake commenced to take three spoonfuls of shot per day, and kept it up for three weeks, having taken altogether about four Xiounds of ordinarj- bird-shot. At the end of three weeks the pains from the lead poisoning became so great that a physician was called in and he found Rake almost dead. Morphine was administered to alleviate the pain, and he is now resting easy, but Dr. James says his recoverj' is doubtful. The remedy is certainly far worse than the disease in this case.

^ . STIRRINQ SOENEa ‘
Colonel Robertson Forcibly KJeoted From the Indiana Aenate Chamber.
Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. ‘24. — Btirring scenes were enacted this forenoon in tho Senate chamber. Colonel Robertson, who was sworn in as Lieutenant Governor some time ago, applied at the Senate door for admission and was refused. He continued to stand at the door until some one on the Inside said, “That’s all right,” and he passed into the chamber. Senator Do Motto applied at another door, but could not gain admission, and he battered and beat upon the door for some time in the effort to get in. He then passed down to the middle door just as Senator Johnson entered. The latter turned and saw the doorkeeper refuse admission to DeMotte and he began to expostulate with them, calliug them thugs aud scoundrels and demanding that DeMotte should be admitted. Senator McDonald then left his seat and passed over to the door and took Johnson by the arm. As soon as the latter felt the grip of the Senator he turned and planted a blow with his fist squarely between McDonald’s eyes, staggering him and making an ugly cut on the bridge of his nose. McDonald did not resept the blow, but calmly advised Johnson to go to his seat and learn to control his temper. While this was going ou within the chamber a perfect bedlam was raging outside. The crowd was surging backwards and forwards in the hall and around the door, and whenever the latter was. opened sticks were placed between the doors to prevent them from closing. The crowd would then pull the doors open aud trj' to force its way in. Several struggles ensued from these attempts to gain an entrance, and in the struggle one man's coat was torn into shreds. A policeman was forcibly carried away from the door aud ord'red not to* return. Threats were freely made of breaking down the doors and forcibly entering the chambers, but no attempt beyond pounding upon them with fists and canes were made. On the insido a dramatic scene was enacting. After tho row between Johnson and McDonald tho Senate was called to order, and Lieutenant-Governor Robertson advanced to tho desk of the president, and placed his foot upon the steps leading up to tho seat, as though he was going up to preside over the Senate. At that moment Door-keeper Pritchett took him vio-lentlj' bj’ the arm and dragged him away from the steps. In another instant he was ui>ou tho steps again, and again he was prevented from ascending bj’ the doorkeeper. He then turned to addi‘ess tho Senate, but was so frequentlj' aud boisterously interrupted by Smith that his words could not be heard. He refused to-be seated, and the door-keeper was ordered by Hmith to put him out of l he Chamber. Pritchett iinmcdiatelj' seized Robertson, aud by pushing and drugging forced him out at the north door of tho hall, the crowd being still around the mid die door, and unawai'o of what was going on. till Robertson had been ejected aud the door locked. After the exciting scenes in the Senate the Republican member.* attempted to leave, but were prevented, tho doorkeeper having oi‘ders not to permit them to pass out of the chamber. They refused to take any part in the proceedings, and by their silence stopped the business of the body, which could do nothing in the waj' of passing bills without their votes. Several bills introduced by the Republicans were called up, but their authors would not explain their provisions and would not answer when addressed ''y tho chair.
