A Delightful Diversity. Cincinnati Star. While we are enjoying the balmy breezes of genial spring, and the early robin breakfasts upon the imprudent worm, they are fighting blizzards and plowing through snow blockades up in Dakots. Grant In New York. Detroit Post.

There can be no question as to the majority for Grant in the New York 1 Republican State convention fairly representing the present opinions of the Republicans of that State, as all the delegates were regularly chosen by the people themselves in the usual way. Grant's Southern Support. Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser, Those persons who talk about securing Southern support for General Grant seem to have forgotten that it was Grant who pinned the South to the earth with bayonets for eight long years. The Southern people have not forgotten it, however. A Cross Baby.

Nothing is so conducive to a man's remaining a bachelor as stopping for one night at the house of a married friend and being kept awake for five or six hours by the crying of a cross baby. All cross and crying babies need only Hop Bitters to make them well and smiling, Young man, remember Testimony From Washington, Washington Post. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is very indignant and proposes to print the names of such of its representatives as got drunk while in Washington last week in search of the Democratic National Convention. If the Post's space is worth much for advertising purposes it will make a fine pot of money by publishing only the names of those who remained sober.

A Little Too Theatrical. New York Tribune. The theatrical business of displaying a Grant banner in the Utica convention was in bad taste, to say the least If the convention had been unanimous, it would have been less objectionable, but there was nothing like unanimity; on the contrary, the banner people had only a scant majority. Mrs. Margaret Gilmore died in Center Township on last Saturday of fever, aged 28 years.

She was buried on Sunday. The deceased was a most excellent lady, and a daughter of Mr. Jacob Cogdill, a veteran of the war of 1812. The lady's many friends have suffered a severe loss by her death. Party Tendencies and Party Practices.

New Orleans Times. It seems to be the fundamental law of representative republics that they must be conducted, and, indeed, governed by and through political party organizations. Free government would appear to be the resultant of the contention of political parties. In every country in the world in which any considerable degree of liberty is possessed by the misses, will be discovered a division of the people into two principal parties; in every instance these organization will be found struggling for political ascend- ancy. Delinquent Tax.

Collector R. T. Davis yesterday posted up as the law required the list of all delinquent personal taxes for the whole county. A careful inspection of this list shows the efficiency of Collector Dayis, in collecting the taxes, from the fact that this list shows only about 1,000 while the same list last year showed about 2,800 and for previous years perhaps more. In this connection it may be proper to state that State Auditor Hockaday embodied Mr.

Davis' plan of collecting taxes, as given in the GAZETTE a few weeks ago, in a circular and sent it to eyery collector in the State, showing what Buchanan county is doing in the way of collecting taxes under Mr. Davis' management. The personal tax of the connty is nearly entirely paid up, and in one township there is only eight delinquents. The Oklahama Business. CITY, March is intense excitement here to-night from the statement that the United States Attorney is directed to read the proclamation at the Oklahoma meeting in the Merchants' Exchange to-morTOW night.

Great preparations are making, and speeches will be made by Col. Bondinot, ex-Congressman Franklin, General Blair and Hon. Sidney Clark and others. Companies are organized here and there are concerted measures for successful raids. The people are unanimously in favor of Senator Vest's bill, but are bound to go into the territory at all hazards.

Troops are scattered all along the frontier but the leaders who came to Kansas City to-day say they can put 2,000 men on the march at three days notice. There is fear of bloodshed unless the President's order is modified so as to allow settlers to go upon the ceded lands. A CARD.

Sanuders, of Maryville, Is Murdered for His Money. Full Partientars of the Matter, with Bri. Sketch of His Life, On Saturday evening the citizens of Maryville were startled with the Information that William R. Saunders, an old and respected citizen of that place, had been found dead in the north part of the city. There are various and condicting rumors concerning his death, but from several reliable sources in this city it is natoral to conclude that be came to his death at the hands of a murderer or murderers.

Mr. Saunders lived a short distance from the city, where he owned IL large farm. n. On Friday evening he started for his home about ten o'clock, and was not seen again until Saturday noon, when his dead body was found lying in a deep ravine on a vacant lot in the north part of the city. It is stated that Friday evening he was about the city carelessly handling one hundred dollars in gold which he had previously received.

A couple of suspicious men were noticed to watch his movements very closely, and it is supposed they are the men who dealt foully with him. When found his money was gone and his throat was black, showing violence had been used. At last accounts the coroner's jury had not brought in a verdict, and the true facts as to the cause of his death can not be definitely stated. The deceased was a brother of Hon. John Saunders, and Robert Saunders, of this city.

He has also two brothers, Richard and James, living at Maryville. His sister, Mrs. Albert Michau, of this city, is now at Ann Arbor, Michigad, haying gone there to attend the funeral of Mrs. John Michau, who died about a week ago in this city. Mr.

Saunders WAS one of the very early settlers in Nodaway county, having come to Maryville in 1843. He has always been known as one of the leading and most enterprising citizens of Maryville. He was born in Kentucky, and was sixty-two years of age. Concerning the affair our Maryville correspondent sent the following telegraph dispatch: Special to the GAZETTE. MARYVILLE, February R.

Saunders, brother of John Saunders, was found dead in a ditch in the north part of Maryville yesterday noon. The coroner's jury have not returned a yerdiet yet, but the impression generally prevails that he was murdered on Friday night. HISTORICUS. PLATTSBURG. Interesting Letter From the Capital of Old Clinton.

-Rev. Mr. Wyatt, of St. Joseph, conducted services in the Christian Church last did much good. He is an able minister and much beloved in these parts.

-Our city election comes off in April. In ths instance it must be the office seeks the man, and not man the office. The fact is there is no money in the thing, and honor is but an empty name. -Tramps by the score call almost every night upon our City Marshal for a night's lodging. As this is an important political ranching of tramps until election time might prove a paying business.

-The M. E. Church South, during the month of February had a great revival, conducted principally by Rev. Wm. Hanna.

Over 70 additions were made to the church, and we learn great interest is yet being taken in their prayer meetings. -Waller Young's Easton Barbacue is already a topic of interest. As soon as the announcement in the GAZETTE WAs noticed, ye politicians of the period approved the idea, and you can look for him there in force when the time is announced. -The judgeship question we may consider settled. Judge Dunn, our old and faithful advocate of justice, can have no one to oppose him.

He has been true to his friends, true to his profession, and true to the cause of justiceand thus the people esteem him. -Sheriff Payne who was recently in the "tumble" ou your Narrow Gauge, is on the streets again, but quite feeble. We learn that the company paid John 81,500 damages for injuries sustained, and that too without a murmur. Bully for the N. and long live J.

P. --Major Lindsey, our efficient and popular Circuit Clerk, informs us that the docket for the April term of our Circuit Court is unusually large. The most important case on the criminal docket is that of Young Johnson, indicted for the murder of Marshal Culver, of Cameron. -Cages are being erected in our jail for the safe-keeping of evil-doers. The work will be done well by the contractors, Messrs.

Dyerle Ward, and there will be no danger of any one breaking out when he gets behind those bars, unless he has the smallpox or measles He may be a temperance man, but he will be tight, nevertheless. -Our recent spring-like weather has given way to regular winter blasts, with a fair prospect of another ice harvest. The spring-time of our gentle Anna seldom dawns in Missouri until April telephones the coming of May. Persons from a warmer clime should make a note of this fact, and thus become posted on Missouri weather. -The Clinton House has a new landlord.

The many friends of this wellkuown hostelrie will be sorry to part with Mrs. Ford and her amiable family, (including of course George), but in her stead comes Mr. Willard, a gentleman every way worthy to cater to the tastes of all who leave home and its blessings and trust to the care of strangers. Mrs. Ford carries with her to her new home in Kansas the best wishes of a host of friends.

-During February's lovely days there has been an unusual liveliness in business circles, and quite an amount of improvement done in our city. The merchants report good sales, while the carpenter aud painter have had a rush of work. The outlook in general is encouraging and with a good crop year we may well conclude that a grand and glorious season of prosperity will boom along all this best and greatest section of our State. -An advertisement of another great Clinton county Short-horn sale will be sent you in due time. Last year the move was inaugurated, and the success that attended it induced our stock men to go in deeper and make a move to ride the top wave.

Kentucky has her Hamiltons, Alexanders and others, but Clinton has her Clays, Davisons, Duncans, Jones' Killgores, Ashbys, Funkhousers, Newbys and a host of others, who go in to win in this line, and you may be certain that they will do it. -For the past five weeks the popular firm of Lyons Conner have been in a comparative state of gloom. It is always thus when the light of the household is gone. But all is serene now. Conner has got back.

For ten long years he had not seen the classic banks of "Big Sandy," nor roamed among the rocky knobs of far-famed but dear old Greeup. He went, he saw his old home and loved ones, and came back to receive an armful of welcomes. He ranks the events of the past few weeks among the most pleasant of his life, and begs the Reaper to give him time to gO them over again. Conner has a host of friends in St. Joseph who will say this is 3 well bestowed compliment on 8 worthy gentleman, -Nothing does a Clinton countyite more good than to hear of the onward progress of St.

Joseph. Notes of her improvement and rapidly gaining umportance as a railroad center are read with interest, and the wish entertained that she will "push along and keep moving." The interests of Buchanan and Clinton are Identical; while the former can boast of having a rushing, growing young city, (the ultimate nitcleus of all our great trade) Clinton comes in with her wealth of agriculture, her tee horses and mules, and last, though not least, her short-horns. It takes a heap to make a pile, and any common sense observer will at once decide that in wealth, prosperity, general intelligence, politics and religion, Clinton and Buchanan can hold their own with any two of the other best counties in the State. -As we have in our county an immensity of organs in the newspaper line to dish out its political organism, It is hard ly prudent for me to allude to the presume's or want-to-be's. Office has its emoluments, no matter how small, and the time never has been (since the war) that aspirants were not too numerous to mention.

In my intercourse with the intelligent masses I find that the old bias of favoritism is giving away, and that the question of direct capacity and honesty (the advice of Jefferson), is becoming the watchword. The man who now wants an office must come betore the people with a clear record. As a Democrat he must be a man "to the manner born" -his democracy dating back so far that there is not a blot or stain upon his escutcheon. He must know no points of the compass attached to our great political State's map, but be willing to die by office and its loaves and flshes. The other party, whatever it may be, is taking this advantage, and the democracy are not wise if they let slip the example.

An Oid and Respected Citizen of 08- born Passes Suddenly Away, The following telegraph dispatch was received last night regarding the sudden death of Capt. R. W. Wheeler, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Osborn: Special to the GAZETTE. OSBORN, March R.

W. Wheeler, the well known proprietor of the Young American Hotel of this place, died suddenly of apoplexy at Mayesville Sunday night and was buried yesterday with imposing Masonic honors. Capt. Wheeler was an old landmark, having lived here twenty-one years. This will be sad news to numerous friends who have been intimate with Capt.

Wheeler for many years. He was known to the traveling public as the proprietor of the Youug American Hotel at Osborn and also proprietor of the Osborn and Gentryville hack hine. For over twenty years he has been a resident of Osborn and was respected by all who knew him. He was about fifty vears of age at the time of his death. An Editor in Luck.

G. A. HEILMAN Editor Republican, Pittsburg, Pa. ST. JACOBS OIL cures Rheumatism; of this I am convinced.

For two years I suffered with Rheumatism in my left shoulder and right arm, and last fall I was incapable of attending to my duties, and lay many a night unable to sleep on account of terrible pains. A few weeks ago a severe attack of this trouble struck me, and this time I concluded to try the ST. JACOBS OIL, I must acknowledge, with but little confidence in its merits. I freely confess that the result has completely astonished me The first appli cation relieved the pain very materially, and the continued use of only two bottles bas completely cured me of this chronic evil, and that, after the most eminent physicians and their prescriptions had been of no avail. I therefore consider it a duty to publish the above for the benefit of all sufferers with Rheumatism and kindred complaints.

Physicians are Amazed, Patients delighted, the doubtful silenced, and all who have eyes to see, or ears to hear, more than satisfled by the absolute certainty with which HALE's HONEY OF HOREHOUND AND TAR cures Cougbs, Colds, Hoarseness, and every affection of the lungs and throat, tending to Consumption. Pike's Toothache Drops cure in one minute. THROUGH THE HEART. A Horrible Tragedy at Mayesville, DeKalb County, on Monday Night. A Well-known Lawyer Instantly Killed by the Explosion of a Revolver in His Son's Hand.

Whisky is Alleged as the Cause of the Untortunate and Horrible Affair. George W. Rose, a well known lawyer of Mayesville, DeKalb county, met with 8 sudden death at bis home on Monday night. The particalars as learned are as follows: On the night named Rose went to his home in a crazed state of intoxication and began abusing his family, breaking the dishes, destroying the furniture, etc. He was accustomed to coming home in this condition, but was unusually boisterous on this occasion.

In order to protect his mother from violence, the oldest son, Olly, about 21 years of age, came to her rescue and repeatedly prevailed upon his father to desist from his conduct. This only enraged the father, until the son produced a revolyer with a view to frighten him. It was the intention, it is said, of the young man to fire the revolver down through the floor, but from some unaccountable reason it was discharged in the melee and the ball passed through the father's heart, killing him almost instantly The affair is regarded as being a lamentable one and is regretted by all. It is stated, however, that the feeling of the citizens is not against the young man, averring that it was purely accidental on his part. George W.

Rose was a man of fine intellect and noble impulses, and his appetite was his strongest enemy. He was reared in Platte county, and began the practice of his profession in Mayesville, many years ago. He was elected to the office of county attorney at one time and filied that office with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of the people. Of late years he has had considerable trouble and fell to drinking, which ultimately resulted in his untimely death, as stated above. MEDICAL GRADUATES.

Graduating Exercises of the St. Joseph College of Physicians and Surgeons. Fourteen Students Have the Title of M. D. Affixed to Their Names.

The commencement exercises of the students of the College of Physicians and Surgeons occurred at the Opera House last evening. The house was well filled with spectators to witness the ceremonies and hear the addresses. On the stage were seated the members of the Faculty of the college and the fourteen graduates. Pryor's band opened up the exercises with a lively air, when the President of the College, Dr. W.

I. Heddens, stated that the exercises would be opened with prayer. Rev. C. I.

Vandeventer then made an effective prayer, when Dr. Wm. P. Jeffrey, a member of the graduating class, came forward and delivered the following able and very appropriate address: Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees, Gentlemen of the Faculty, Fellow -Students, Ladies and Gentlemen: It has fallen to me as my part to say the formal good bye of the class of '79 and '80 of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and in doing this we would return to you our heart-felt thanks for your kindness to us during our short stay here in St. Joseph.

Our sojourn with you has been one of profit and pleasure to us, and as we separate from you we separate as friends, trueting that the memory of our associations here will ever remain a bright spot in the history of our lives; and a8 we go out from these associations to different parts of this great wide world, on our mis sion of mercy we would carry with us much of that earnestness of purpose and those high sentiments of virtue, nobility, intellect, excellence and christian graces with which the citizens of St, Joseph are 50 highly blessed. Although our path may never neighbor with each other, still we will ever feel that we are colaborers in one grand work of doing good. What a glorious thought to know that not only in this city, but throughout our grand republic, systems of instruction and principles of intellectual and moral culture are, year by year, taking advanced grounds, and to -day our nation stands higher on the plane of intellectual culture than ever before-still the demand for a more practical education was never greater, a demand which embraces in its call the proper adjustinent of all the varied interests and lawful pursuits of humanity. This demand brings to our view the great master spirit of the age, emenating as it does from a rapidly progressive people, sending forth its radiating influences to every nation, it carries with it the power of greatness. While we appreciate beauties and admire the sublimties of the products of these old master minds, not only in medicine, but in every department of science, we sacredly hold their works and profit by them, as they are handed down to us by inheritance.

In the light that is thus given us as a people we see our picket men pushing forward the work in every department of science, as they drop their leaves of truth like snowflakes broadcast over the land, beckoning us to come up higher. Then, with that concentrated devotion to the useful, the practical and the attainable, let us as one united people push forward with all the zeal that characterized the work of our ancestors do well our part, knowing full well that the grand ultimatum is not all even of life to live. There are heights that are intinitely higher and depths that are profoundedly have deeper ever yet explored, then genius there than the hand of 18 A nature infinitely higher, nobler, purer, for each individual to attain, but we must not look for perfection in anything earthly, but confiding in that indomitable spirit of progress which is so highly characteristic of the age in which we live, and trusting in the efficacy of that insoluble compound of religion and education, we may with full assurance, look forward in the future to the full realization of the rich promises which the history of the past reveals to that time when education will have become practical. Indeed when such individual will have received the highest the will practical cultivation and in accordance beneficient of our great Creator. And now as I turn to you my classmates, the deepest feelings of emotion fill my mind as I enter upon the discharge of the duties with which you have honored me.

During the few months that we have been here laboring as a class in one common cause, and one common impulse, we have woven cords of friendship that shall bind us as a class in our brotherhood durable as time, broken only eternal. as we pass over into the realms of the The first year of the history of our Alma mater is now closing and as we look over the page that we have just turned we have much to be proud of, and as we gaze upon the new and unsullied page that now opens before us, our minds, unbidden take a retrospect of the past and with some anxiety contemplate the future. Looking at our alma mater we have no cause to blush at her history. The grand resulta that have been brought about by the sound judgment of her board of trustees and by that ceaseless care and indefatigable ener gy of her faculty, may well make us feel a little boastful. And now as we go out from her halls, let us go to do honor to her name.

Let us be representative men of the highest type in the profession. With an unyielding purpose let us labor for the advancem nt of science and the dissemination of a higher medical knowledge in the profession. While we have been laboring zealously and arduously in acquiring the necessary information to enable us to practice the healing art understandingly, let us not forget to avail ourselves of all the latest improvements and inventions for the alleviation of suffering humanity then with purity of purpose let us discharge the duties imposed upon us in caring for those intrusted to our care. In this way let us labor that this institution may be proud of her children and honored by them. Time which never stops to rest is rapidly passing.

We stand to-day upon the threshold of a new life, and as we look out upon the troubled ocean of human life and behold pestilential miasmas, and the ravages of discase both congenital and acquired augmenting the great list of wrecks that have been constantly growing for ages, we behold many a noble and stately bark, freighted with the highest hopes of nations, communities and individuals, overwhelmed beneath its impetuous billows to rise no more. Such is one side of the pic ture of human life that now rises before us. The reality of this must we, as physicians, confront, backed up reason by those deathless ener. gies of science, and revelation we read the diathesis of human life and ponder well its clinical history. The prognosis is not always favorable.

We cannot, by any rule of science, determine the exact natural term of human life, but by its diagnoses we may be brought to a knowledge of the solemn purposes of life, when life is viewed in its tion to a life eternal. With this knowledge before us let our treatment be to keep sound the strong ones of our race and to make the weak ones strong. This is the grand desideratum to be obsend tained, abroad and those such is the work which will fertilizing influences that will quicken our very nature into works of beneficient, kindness, gentleness and mercy, and then being clothed with the habilaments of a pure philanthropy, will we be ready to brave the dangers of contagion, and sacrificing self if need be to alleviate the sufferings of humanity-a grander or more glorious work was never given to man. The elements of this work come welling up from the fountains of immortal youth, as the physician by his master hand of genius and of art those deep undertones of sadness, arresting as far as possible the ravages of all the maladies human flesh in heir to, and sending out those thrifting susceptibilities of kindness and efcent work that will continue to vibrate until they strike the shores of Time, and then as we listen may we hear their deep, but distant murmurs, as they echo back from the shores of the Immortal sea. la there a grander work than this? In all the avenges of life, can there be found a work of higher import than that work which makes life more happy here, and at the same tune paves the way to that state of future bliss, infinitely more pure and bright eternal, made bright by the very presence of that great Physician- that Healer of all disease.

Then, in the language of Dr. Crabbe, the poet, we would say: "Glorious its aim to case the laboring, heart, To war with death and stop his flying dart, To trace the source whence the fierce contest grew, To And calm life's the short frenzy lease of on the easier burning terms brain, renew; To heal the tortures of imploring pain, Or where more powerful ills all efforts brave, To soothe the Fictiin no device can save, And smooth the stormy passage to the grave." Gentlemen of the Faculty, in saying the to you we cannot find adequate expression in words of thankfulness for your patient and untiring labors in imparting to us 80 much of that knowledge for which we came nere in quest. The trutha you have taught us cannot but inspire 118 with flial love and reverence to discharge a filial obligation which we now owe to our Alma Mater. This obligation causes pulses to beat which send a thrill of admiration for this Inetitation which you have labored so arduously to build on so firm a basis--a basis which rests on those higher aims and motives and issues of the age. An Institution which stands to day a living and will stand an imperishable reality among the institutions of our land.

The hallowed memories of those living examples of self-sacrificing labor on your part for our benetit will ever inspire us with new zeal in the cause and fidelity to our sacred calling; and as we go out from these halls with these sacred memories clustering around us, we trust that our lives may reflect a living honor to the institution that you so nobly represent. At her shrine we have all received her wise instructions, her kind councils and her parental care. We receive these instructions as her patrimony to us, trusting that the reliance that we have reposed in her may, on the the busy field of action, become a part of ourselves, and her instructions lead us on and on into higher and purer regions of knowledge. We have lingered with you as you led us amid the harmonies of the laws which govern our being and as the light of science shown upon our pathway as we began to investigate the laws that that govern the intellectual world, we realized we had been led within the borders of a higher region in science. Along these beautiful paths we would travel until the tasks of life are ended and we join in the harmonies of that eternal song whose cadences are never broken by disease or death.

Gentlemen, we bid you good-bye. The address was received with applause from the entire audience, and all considered the effort an able one. Dr. F. A.

Simmons, one of the faculty, was then introduced and delivered the principal address of the evening. His speech was replete with a complete history of the College from its first inception. It contained many things of interest, especially to the young students of the graduating class. Our space is too crowded for the speech in full, and a brief synopsis would not do the speech proper justice. The President then came forward and presented the graduates with their diplomas with the following oath: "I voluntarily take, and most solemnly promise without any evasion or mental reservation in me whatever to keep inviolate, SO help me God HYPOCRATIC OATH.

"My life shall be pure and holy; into whatever house I enter I will gO for the good of the sick. I will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption, and from lead ing away any, whether man or woman, bond or free. Whatever, in connection with my professional practice, I see or hear, in the life of men, which ought not to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While 1 continue to keep this oath inviolate may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the art, respected by all men, in all times." Dr. Heddens then stated that Gov.

Woodson had been expected to deliver an address to the audience, but had been called away on very important business. He felt sure the audience would feel disappointed, as he knew the Faculty and class were. They made no pretentions to speech making, he said, but had expected Gov. Woodson to furnish the eloquence for the exercises. The doctor, however, made a very sensible address, reyeiwing the history of the College, of which he is president, and was rejoiced that success had crowned their efforts thus far.

He said: "I hope that one year from this time we shall be able to send a larger graduating class than this one, but this I know we could not send out a better looking or a better informed class of students."

Martin Zimmerman, Troy Kas. BOND COMPROMISE. Judge Royal Files a Report as Requested by Resolution of the Council. Showing the Prospects of an Adjustment of the City Debt. The following is the report of Judge Royal, financial agent of the city, concerning the adjustment of the city debt, which was fled last night with the City Register; but there was no action taken upon the report by the Council.

Eight thousand dollars of old bonds compromised under the ordinances were also tiled with the Register: The Report. To the Mayor and City Council of St. Joseph: GENTLEMEN obedience to ordinances and resolutions passed by your honorable body bearing upon the adjustment of the city could bonded be debt, done, I beg new leave bonds to of say: the As far as city have been exchanged for old ones on the basis of sixty cents in new bonds for one hundred cents in old bonds, as will more fully appear from the balance sheets, prepared and forwarded with the bond now in possession of the city. The city, as I think, very wisely selected the Farmers' Loan and Trust company, of the city of New York, as its repository. Its standing is first class.

That they were much surprised that the city of St. Joseph should hesitate to furnish new bonds when called upon by them to exchange for old bonds when old bonds were awaiting exchaoge, must have lead them to believe that there was an element in the city government that did not want to encourage the exchange, or, if not this. that there must be distrust of them on the part of the city, government, or there could be no hesitation to forward new bonds to carry out a prompt and speedy adjustment of the work, well knowing that the bonded debt of the city amounted to near two millions of dollars, and to commence the work with a small handfull of new bonds, amounting to but thirteen thousand dollars, in four per cent. bonds, and an equal amount in live per cent. bonds, and they must all be compromised before any additional new bonds would be forwarded, carried with it such distrust as to practically render the work of compromising doubly uncertuin.

And such action, whatever may have been the motive, apparently reflected on the integrity of the city's repository. I am satisied had the city authorities acted impartially and encouraged with their cooperation, the work of compromising according to the prov sions of the ordinance of June 2d, ratified by the people, there would have been now, compromised not less than two hundred thousand dollars of our bonded debt, which would have been of vast importance to the welfare of our city. At least half a million of new bonds should have been forwarded. Many holders of our old bonds, holding thirty thousand dollars and upwards, who gave them to the Farmer's Loan and Trust company, to be funded, under the supposition that new bonds would be forwarded, were finally informed that no more new bonds would be forwarded until the $26,000 were adjusted, The larger withdrew these bonds, and only a few small holders could be accommodated. I am satisfled it will take much effort to carry out the work, and will require the hearty and earnest -operation of the Mayor and City Council, that any good can come to the city.

It is to be regretted that any hinderance has interposed in the prosecution of a work so important. That any have occurred I am sure 18 not chargable to the acts of your Mayor, Mr. Atwill, Mr. McInerny or your humble servant. I am, gentlemen, yours respectfully, ROYAL.

Garlichs. A REMARKABLE CASE. Restored to Sight After Three Months Blindness. A Ten-Year-Old Girl, the Daughter of Ernest Brunt, Suddenly Restored to Light as the Result of Measles. Keokuk Constitution.

Little Millie Brunat is 10 years of age. She Is the daughter of Ernest nat, an engraver of this city. In her Infancy a skin disease common to children affected her eyelids, and as a result left her with weak eyes, which have more or less afflicted her ever since. Last fall, about Thanksgiving time, Miltie took cold and was confined to her bed, with an attack of pneumonia; the disease lingered with her, and the cold which seemed to baffle the skill of the physician in charge, settled in her eyes. She suffered great pain and distress.

Everything was done that skill and love could do to give her relief, but without success. Darkness slowly gathered over the bright windows of her body, and before the holidays Millie was totally blind. Her eyes was covered with a curious colored vail or Ahn with white spots on it. No hope was entertained of it ever being removed, and grief sunk deep in the hearts of the parents at the prospects of the life of shadows before their beloved child. The holidays brought gifts to the little blind girl, but the sight of them was withheld from her.

The days that passed to her were days of darkness and they dragged their weary hours along without giving any hope of relief. The family and friends had accepted what seemed to be inevitable, and were trying to become reconciled to the misfortune that seemed to have fallen upon them. The weeks grew into months, and the darkness for the little girl, if anything, was deeper and gloomier. But now comes the strangest part of this o'er true story. Many persons have become blind, and the shadow has remained with them through life.

But we doubt whether within the knowledge of any of our readers a person totally and apparently hopelessly blind, was ever so suddenly, unexpectedly and without special treatment or surgical operation, restored to the full enjoyment of the light of the day. Millie Brunat was. The scales dropped from her eyes last Sunday, and to-day she and her friends are rejoicing over the event. They can give no scientific explanation of this sudden transformation from darkness to light. All they know about it is that it is so.

A week ago last Sunday Millie Brunat, then totally blind, was attacked by the measles, which disease has been prevalent in our city. The disease ran its course, progressed favorably, and the child was soon convalescing. The latter part of the week found her almost recovered from the measles, but still blind. Last Sunday morning, however, as she was getting over the measles she opened her eyes and the film or vail had disappeared, and the child exclaimed, "I can see!" Since then she has continued to exercise her eyesight as before her attack last fall, and her parents and friends hope that the restoration is permanent. Last Sunday was a day of great rejoicing in the Brunat family; for their loved little girl who had been blind, was restored to them in health.

This is the most remarkable case of the kind it has ever been our duty to record. We unite with family and friends in hoping that Millie Brunat's wonderful restoration of sight way be permanent. THE TELEGRAPHIC WAR. The Fight Not Yet En Ended, and the Matter is still in the Courts, all of which makes Fees for the Attorneys. KANSAS CITY, March 2 -The attorneys for the Western Union Telegraph Company have served notices on the attorneys of the Gould party that they will apply to Judge Stevers, in whose court the Kansas injunction suit 1S pending, on Thursday next, for an order commanding them to restore the lines recently seized in violation of the injunction and to surrender the same to the Western Union.

This is substantially the order made by Judge McCrary, of the United States Circuit Court, in the Union Pacific case on Monday. The cutting of the lines has caused much excitement. The press here and in Kansas are generally denouncing it as a highhanded and reckless proceeding. The Western Union say that they will resort to no revolutionary measures to secure their rights, but will rely wholly upon the courts. They ridicule the idea that a forcible possession of the lines can be maintained for any length of time, and say that this was a game of bluff for the purpose of accomplishing results which could not be ob: tained by peaceable and lawful methods.

AN INJUNCTION. NEW YORK, March injunction was obtained here to-day by the Western Union Telegraph Company restraining the Union Pacific R. and the American Union Telegraph Company from interfering with the Western Union wires. An Actress Dead. SAN FRANCISCO, March Mary Chapman, formerly a well known actress, died yesterday aged 67.

Found Floating. March dead body of G. W. Parker, a man of considerable property, was found floating in the canal near the hospital this morning. His gold watch was missing.

No cause Is known to induce him to commit suicide, and it is thought he was robbed and thrown into the canal. He was seen at a temperance meeting last night and afterward at a barber shop where he stoped to pay a small bill. He was a widower sixty-five years old. TRADE AND TRAFFIC.

Prentice SAVED. TOLEDO, Sept. 25, 1879. Messra. H.

H. WARNER Rochester, N. Y. -Gentlemen: Having escaped death from Bright's disease by the use of your Remedy, I feel it a duty, not only to acknowledge my gratitude to you personally, but also to bring my case before the public, and have those who are suffering similarly to judge whether a medictne not prepared by the "regulars" will cure this frightful malady or not. In the summer of 1872 I was fret taken ill, with symptoms which, I was informed, were those of Bright's disease.

I went to Marquette, and called to my aid a physician of noted ability. After remaining a considerable time under his care, I found no improvement; on the contrary, my disease was considerably aggravated. I next placed myself charge of one of the first physicians in Toledo, with no better result. I was then induced to try the skill of an eminent medica man in New York, and remained under his care six months. Finding myself growing steadily weaker, with no abatement of the kidney derangement, I began to despair of ever getting well.

In the summer of 1875 my friends induced. me to go abroad, thinking that the sea voyage, together with the superior skill of foreign medical men, might effect a cure. I succeeded in gaining an introduction to the celebrated Dr. Declat of Paris, and remained under his care fifteen months. He used in my case what is known as the carbolic treatment, and then every method which the most scientific men of the profession on the Continent were known to employ.

No improvement being apparent, the services of Dr. a gentleman of equal eminence, were next solicited. Seven months of careful treatment by this kind gentleman brought me to the beginning of the most aggravated symptoms of the disease. With swollendimbs, disordered liver, impaired digestion and serious irregularities of the heart, I proceeded to Manchester, England, and for five months my case baffled the skill of Dr. Roberts, one of the ablest men of his profession in England, and author of a work on diseases of the kidneys.

His great knowledge did not avail in my case, and, finally, despairing of any improyement, much less a cure, I returned to my native land in the belief that I must soon die. When I reached home two physicians were summoned, who, on subjecting samples of the urine to the test of heat and acid, discovered the presence of albumen in large proportion while the microscope showed numerous casts All this, together with the despairing lookof my physicians, forced the agonizing convic tion that death was inevitable. I then dismissed my medical attendants, with the intention of letting nature struggle on unaided to the end; for my confidence in the ability of medical men to cope with the disordered kidneys had become, to say the least, greatly lessened. At this time I weighed myself in the presence of several friends in the wholesale grocery establishment of Emerson Toledo, 0., and turned the scales at pounds, pounds more than my ordinary weight when in health; in other words, the tissues of my body were saturated with pounds, or about gallons of water. Finally, while listlessly lingering in pain and anguish I was informed by a lady residing on Plymouth Rochester, N.

that one Charles Craig, of Charlotte, had discovered 8 remedy for Bright's Disease, with which he had cured himself and many others. I immediately repaired to his residence by the lake, and, after a treatment of five weeks with the remedy (now called "WARNER'S SAFE KIDNEY AND LIVER all my symptoms abated. and I began to feel that I was almost a well man. I returned nome, taking with me a quantity of the medicine, and now, although months have elapsed since I took the last dose, I joyfully declare myself absolutely well both in mind and body. Should you have occasion in the future to use this letter, you are at liberty to do so.

and any one who hesitates to believe the conclusiveness of my statements, is respectfully referred to the following persons, who were aware of the character of my ailment, and the apparent hopelessness of my case: Mme. Le 30 Rue Drowoot, Paris; Henri DuBois, 11 Rue Melesherbes, Paris; Dr. Seteller, Bordeaux, France; Dr. E. Charmaux, Rue Algine and Lucas Vichy, France; M.
