Ile is an honest, honorable man, brave, undaunted, believes in his friends, knows his record is clean, aud goes into the campaign expecting to win. And he will; in a district having 1,000 democratic majority. Perhaps there are abler men in congress, but then* is no purer and more honorable man in either house or senate than Major Stone, of Kentucky. He was a gal lam soldier during the late war, is a successful business man. and a popular congressman. He has a friend in every seat in the house, and not an enemy on earth. Ile was chairman of the committee on war claims in the last congress, and will be chairman of that same committee in the next congress if the democrat ie part gains control of the house in the tifty-seeond congress. He is regarded as an exceptionally honorable and conscientious man, and is one of the hardest working men in tin* Kentucky delegation. Hon. Mark. IL Dunuell, of Minnesota, has rendered conspicuous and able service as chairman of the committee on the eleventh census. He is a powerful speaker, an experienced legislator, and bis return to congress by his old constituents, was a wise move on their part. Governor Gear, of Iowa, is one of the urominent members of the house missed here since adjournment. He is one of the most tireless workers, and most successful representative the 'tate of Iowa has ever sent to congress. The democrats of Indianapolis will probably return Mr. Bynum to congress, and if the democrats have the next house. Mr. Bynum will be their speaker. lie is a tall man with smooth face, black hair, ungainly walk, eloquent of speech, and partisan as the devil.

He Does Not Tse a “I'ake” Hood and Will Play Rase Hall Blindfolded. Chic aho, Oct. 2.—AY. lh Gooding, manager of I*. Alexnder Johnstone, Hie yiiud-reader. arrived here from Minneapolis yesterday and iii an interview’ warmly denied the statement of a Chicago physician that the hood used by Johnstone was transparent, and that by slipping the bandages down the mindreader wa" enabled to see. Mr. Gooding added:    This doctor has a bulging forehead, and by contraction of the eyebrow’s can raise bandages placed over his eyes. Then by having a ‘fake’ hood made, which opens by a pull on a cord, he gives a socalled expose iif .Tohnstsoue's work. John-stoni* frequently, and during warm weather especially, does not use any hood, and as a matter of fact his hood has no strings attached to it, and further he always allows any one who wishes in an audience to examine it. Probably over twenty thousand people have made a personal examination of it. The hood U"ed by the doctor would not stand the investigation of a dozen people, and it is singular that some of the scientific men with whom Johnstone has worked should not have observed these cords and loop-holes if they actually existed. “We are perfectly willing that any newspaper here should select a committee of prominent men in whom people have confidence, and subject Johnstone to the most rigid tests. On Saturday he will play base ball at the National league grounds while thoroughly blindfolded and controlled by Captain Anson. The latter is to stand on the home-plate aud 'will' Johnstone to do certain feat". This should afford sufficient evidence that Johnstone is just what he claims to be. The Doctor's ‘expose’ is simply a bid for notoriety, pure and simple.” ROBERT RAY HAMILTON. nia Pi* ifflO*: til** Census Returns.

Sir John Thompson announced the present policy of the government, owing to tariff changes in the United States, to be to subsidize fast steamship lines on the Pacific and At lantic, thus giving the Canadian people facilities for transportingt their produce and manufactures in a rapid manner to China. Japan and Australia, and to the gn at markets of Europe. Chicago, Oct. 2.—The national committee on the classification which for ten days has been working on the divisions of the groat fair has at last marked out the twelve divisions into which tho exhibits will bo divided. They have been practically agreed upon but not formally adopted and are as follows: Each letter represents a department: “A agriculture. “B” viticulture and horticulture. “C livestock. “D” mine" and metallurgy. “E" machinery. “F" electricity and electra! appliances. “G " manufactures and other elaborate industries. “ll" fine arts pictural and decorative. “I science, history, literature and social relations. “K" marine and fisheries. “L" the house and its accessories. costumes and personal equipment. “M isolated, collective and monographic exhibition not otherwise classified. Professor Goode, who yesterday explained his system of classification, examined the so-called DeYoung classification aud, before the committee to-day, said he approved the most of it and thought the dividing of the agricultural department into three great departments instead of one, as he placed it, was a decided improvement. Ile summed up his whole criticism in the remark that the committee had made a great many improvements on his classification, aud if they would only rearrange departments of science, literature, education, etc., it would please the public generally. It is given out officially that President Palmer, of the world's fair commission, will not accept the salary of ^12.000 per year voted him, but will content himself with his 86 dollars per diem as voted for the members of the commission by congress and will accept this only when in the actual performance of his duties. BOLD TRAIN ROBBERS. Two Masked Men Despoil ail Ohio Kqin .1 of Sts Valuables. Casky, ohio, Oct. 2.—A bold train robbery occured this morning on the Cincinnati, Sandusky and Cleveland railroad between that place and Urbana. Immediately after the train left Urbana two masked men with cocked revolvers ntered the express car and compelled the Adams express messenger, A. T. Scudder, to throw up his hands. They then ti(*d him securely, robbed the safe of packages containing several thousand dollars and other valuables. While they were at work a brakeman tried to enter the car and was shot at by one of tho robbers. Ile gave the alarm and the train was shoved up togivi an opportunity to capture the robbers but they jumped from the train just as it was entering West Liberty and disappeared in tin darkness, it then being just about .3:20 o’clock a. iii. Messenger Scudder wa bound in his chair with a line the robbers had brought with them. One of them, whom the other called “Jack,” tried to kill Scudder before leaving the car. Placing the revolver to the messen ger’s head, he pulled the trigger, but the cartridge failed to explode. The other robber then prevented him from trying it again. When the train pulled out of West Liberty the two robbers again got aboard, holding the entire crew at bay. Scudder, who had been released, opened fire em them with a pistol from bis car door, but was compelled to retreat. The robber kept on board until Bellefontaine wa reached, when they again jumped oil and disappeared, The officers at Bellefontaine were searching for them. Studier is about fifty years of age and lives in Cincinnati and has been on this run since she Adams company took charge of the express business on it, about three years ago. He had just received his month's salary and that was among the booty. MKSI1 KI IU NG HIK KOBB HK". Colt Mitt's, <>..

A hasty examination disclosed tho fact that the infant was dead, or so nearly that it became impossible to restore life. The doctor arrived several hours later and at once declared that the child’s breath had been sucked by tho cat, producing suffocation. This conclusion w’as not arrived at by reason of any medical knowledge, for in the only two medical works on the subject of “kinderheil-kunde,” by Drs. Gerhardt aud Henoch, physicians ar*- particularly cautioned against believing any such theory, as well as against giving circulation to such reports, because of the fright and injury to mothers with babes. The breath-sucking theory is denominated an old midwife’s superstition and totally un worth the attention of any intelligent nineteenth-century motlier. It is on a par with the stories of untutored policemen who believe that a burglar can chloroform a household by poking saturated cotton through keyholes and underneath windows. "I. N - KL IX ss ANI* PKK POSTL KOU* Dr. Charles Warington Earle of the Washingtonian home whose experience in treating children is extensive, has this to say of the eat story: “Were death in any form not such a terribly depressing reality, and all the more in innocent bulies. I should laugh at this story. It is both senseless and preposterous, and I consider it even criminal to have' such a mistaken idea given oui by a coroner's jury which is supposed to ascertain the true cause of death. I don't see what Dr. Hektoen of the coroner's office meant by letting such nonsense get into a verdict. “A baby live mouths old is very weak and a good-sized eat lying on its breast over its face could easily suffocate it. such cases now and then occur and of course gave rise in the first place to tile breath-sucking notion. There is probably not one mother in twenty-five who has not discovered the affection a pet cat bears toward ti babe. The child’s body is warm and cats frequently leap into the crib and go to sleep near it. But the domestic cat is not a vampire nor such a bloodthirsty animal as this story would make it.V won.I) NOT HF HT TI IF. CHILD. “But suppose a cat were found with its mouth directly over a baby’s mouth ami inhaling tin* latter's breath?” “That might be true and still not hurt the child, 'i’he cat could only inhales the breath expired by the infant aud this contains no oxygen, and is of no use to the infant after once having passed out of the lungs. At any rate, respiration would not be affected in such a case. Therefore I repeat that a eat could not suck the infant’s breath, and it is pitiful to know that some people are so densely ignorant as to believe the story,” CLARKSON WELL SATISFIED.

Chic ago, Oct. 2.—Deputy Coroner Monaghan, one of Coroner Hertz’s bright particular stars, held an inquest on th** body of a five-months-old baby yesterday and secured the following verdict; “We the jury are of the opinion that the deceased came to her death from suffocation produced bv a female cat inhaling her breath while in her cradle.” Aside from the mixed condition of the verdict, which doesn’t make it plain whether the cat was inhaling her own breath or that of the child, or how in either case it would produce death even if true, the case had a scientific aspect which at once provoked much indignation in medical circles. Probably not one reputable physician in Chicago who read the story but realized that a I earful I y mistaken idea would obtain, particularly among women, concerning th** cause of the child’s death. A great injustice is also done that popular household pet. the fells domestica. Not only the mother, Mrs. Fate Wozda, residing at 1046 Boyne avenue, but also Dr. B. R. Strzyzewski, who was called to attend the baby, testified at the inquest that the cat had “sucked the infant's breath” and thus killed it. The child died some time Monday evening. It had been given the cat to play with, and on going to the cradle about 9 o'clock in the evening the mother found her baby sup- «.ratifying to All.
