The Hawaiian quoen called on the rresidcnl at tho White House, yesterday. Senator Camdeu ha3 withdrawn from the senatorial race in West Virginia. '' Dr. Edward Knox, of Fentries county, Tenn., whipped his son to death. Tho New York Legislature has passed a law requiring all railroads in the State to heat their ears by steam. Jcf£ Davis remarks: "John C. Cfilhoun was my guiding star.'' He seems to be a full moon to President Cleveland. Governor Beaver, of Pennsylvania, devotes his entire pension of $45 a month to chanty. He has a big heart, if he does have only one leg. Fifty thousand of Mrs. Cleveland's photographs have been sold, and the demand for them is still active. Doubtless, the White House photographer is in favor of a second term. The New York mud batteries which begun a vigorous flring at Mr. Blaine will come nearer giving him. a boom than anything that has happened for a whole year. The earthquake in the southwest on Tuesday, was more serious than first reports indicated. It extended from El Paso to California, and also to Guaymas, Mexico. A number of the ladies of Belleville petitioned the School Board to exclude beer stands from the grounds at the public school picnic, but the board said: "No." President Arthur's^jshing outfit is said to have been worfch $5,000, and Bangor, Me., supports an angler whose rig cost §20,000. It is the boy with a bent pin and a piece of cotton twine, however, who gets the most fun out of his fishing tackle. Mrs. Mary L. Barr, who is making a name as a writer of Scotch dialect stories, did ,not begin to write until she was 54. Left without a husband and with four children and only 50' cents, she found, like Fanny Fern, that she could use her pen, and has done so to excellent advantage. Legislature. HOUSE.

I had doctored ;constantly. i was so !,bad I could not He down at night. I would just as soon have died as to live in that condition. I took ono bottle of your Balsam and am entirely cured. Have not even coughed for four days. Yours truly, MKS. S. J. BARRACK. LITTLE APRICOTS. There is nothing so positive in its action in treatment of deranged liver, biliousness, heartburn, nervous and sick headache, as Little Apricot Pills, easy to take as sugar, so small, so pleasant. Try them. It is no wonder that people complain of hard times when they pay a doctor bill every few months, amounting to several dollars, instead of keeping on hand some reliable medicine like Burks' White Pine Balaam (that would cost them but 50c, and perhaps cure three or four colds.
