GIMDSTOSK is greatly elated by the return of a liberal from Eccles, and to everyone who speaks to him on the subject he expresses bis delight at the great victory which his party has won. I -in •• -. r --- MionABij BnE7.KiA, aged 75 years, one of the oldest residents of the village of Desplaines, was cruelly murdered Wednesday night. Unknown assassins followed him into his barn, beat him to death with an iron bar, and robbed him of about fl,000 in cash and 85,000 in notes. Armed citizens are on the trail of the murderers. Timbodyof young Abraham Lincoln, son of Minister Robert T. Lincoln, who died in England during the summer, will be buried beside those of his illustrious grand-parent at Springfield, III. Mr. Jncoln has written to friends that ho will oe home during November and the burial will likely take place then. THE farmers of Brown county, S. D., have appwftled for help, sajing that the crop failures hftvo left them destitute; "nur fuel is gathered from tho pastures, our clothing is thin and worn, and our forms and stock are mortgaged to such an extent that no further loans can be secured on them." This is much tho sume story sent out from Dakota last year. The discontented young men on the forms of New England should find in these appeals much to be heeded. WHAT with barometers, transits, levels and other instruments of vulgar precision, the crowns of our mountain moimrchs are in a fair way to be rudely and ruthlessly removed. One after another is forced to buffer diminution of its accepted height. The latest victim is Mt. St. Eliaa. When it was in Russian territory it didn't matter so much, but when Uncle Sam purchased Alaska it was distinctly understood that it contained a mountain 19,000 feet high, and the delivery of this mountain in good condition and as described was one of tho conditions of the contract. But one Kerr, whom the government unwisely sent out to inspect the purchase, returns with the story that Mt. St. Elias is certainly not over 12,000 feet high, and that it probably does not reach that figure. It is to be hoped that the department of state will in e the attention of the' czar to this dis- ^"noy between the bill of lading and pds actually delivered. "?AKM AND FIIIKSIUK" notes "like the Indian and the buffalo range cattle are becoming a thing of the past." The census returns show this, and tho fact may otherwise be regarded as a natural accompaniment to the spread of settlement westward. The springing up ot mining towns and cities here and there on the 'areas which a few years .ago wero ojion to "range" by the cowboy and his herds may have increased the actual consumption of meat in that region, but it cuts down tho possibilities of occupancy undei tho free pasture system an which the brunc instead of the landmark was tho deciding test in question of ownership. The farmers are pushing out further west, ant with them carry the older plan of caring for live stock in small bunches, and displacing what had been the intermediate phase between savagry and civilization. Hence the change is for the better, and al the more so as it tends directly to do away with the irregularities of supply it: " 'narlfet which have done so much to i8b the selling prices of cattle in tho ^w yeitrs.

IT is understood that the war department intend to take no action in the vexed question of allowing the use of the government pier at Chicago to private parties. The act authorizing the secretary of war to grant its use is not at all mandatory, and such a rumpus has^ee^ kicked up over it, nnd the conflicting interests prove so great, that it has been determined to let it alone for the present at least. THE annual report of Inspector General Dumont, of the steamboat inspection service, shows the total number of vessels inspected during the year 1,065; the total net tonnage of vessels inspected, 1,890,389,55; the total number of officers licensel, 38,237. Dur- _ng the year there wero 34 accidents, resulting in a loss of 245 lives, a decrpase of 56 compared with the preceding year. Of the Accidents, 17 resulted from collisions and 102 of the lives lost were by drowning. Of the number of lives lost, 65 were passengers and ISO officers or persons employed 011 the steamers. Fully >00,000,000 passengers were carried on steam vessels during the fiscal year. FIRES AND CASUALTIES. THIS steamer Annie Young, of thr. Lake Superior Transit company, wag burned off Lexington, near Port Huron, Mich., Monday morning. Thirteen of her crew were saved, but the other eight, who ried to escape in the yawl, were drowned. A TEUUIBLE railroad collision near Birmingham. Ala., resulted in the death of lit least five persons and tho serious injury of many others. A disastrous collision in tunnel occurred on the Cincinnati Southern railway, and fully five lives were lost A third collision, resulting in thp loss of life, is reported from Missouri. FIIED HuiiEns and Will Pal metier, who live just outside the city limits of Beaver Dam, Wis., were probably drowned in Beaver Dam lake in the fierce gale of Saturday. They wero hunting ducks on that day, and have not been seen since. Searching parties sire out this morning, but find no trace of them. Hubert is 27 yoKirs of age, and has a and child. Pal metier is 18 years old. Two KXcrriNd fires occurred at New York, Saturday. The first was in a large apartment house, 222 Lexington avenue, the fire starting on the lower floor and cutting off the hall way. The occupants, mostly women and children, were frantic with fright, but the firemen succeeded, after hard work, in rescuing all safely. The second tire occurred in Staltz's coffin factory, on Chaste street, and a- number of employes had a narrow escape. The loss by this fire amounts to §150,000. Dr. Holinea on Tobucco. Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes touches on the subject of tobacco and alcoholic stimulants in a recent contribution to the Atlantic. The older he grows, he says, the less use he makes of alcoholic drinks. Occasionally he takes a glass or two of champagne, which agrees with him better than any other drink) containing alcohol. An old doctor whom be remembers, who lived to be a hundred, used in moderation a mixture of water, cider and ruai. Those ivho are aged require less food, especially animal fooJ, but the doctor does not blame them for beina 1 dainty, since the pleasures of tho palate ore among the last gratifications of the senses allowed them. "What do I say as to smoking?" continued the doctor. "I can not begrudge an old man his pipe, but I. think tobacco often does a good deal of harm to the health—to the eyes especially, to the nervous system gen- ally, producing headache, palpitation and trembling. 1 myself gave it up many years ago." Those who might fancy that the wise and penetrating old doctor offers any encouragement for the indulgence ot dangerous habits gets this parting shot from him: ''Philosophically speakmsr, I think self-narcotization and self-alcohol- ization are rather ignoble substitutes for undisturbed self-consciousness and unfret- ted self-control.

The marked success of Hood's Sursaparilla for these troubles as shown in our advertising columns frequently, certainly seems to justify urging the use of this excellent medicine by all who know that their blood is disordered. Every claim in behalf of Hood's Sarsaparilla is fully backed up by what the medicine has done and is still doing, and when its proprietors urge its merits and its use upon all who suffer from impure blood, in great or small degrees, they certainly mean to include you. 11 11 vi> Kuw IS'olcs Krudy.

PROVIDBHCB, Bj L, Oct. 23.—A great crowd assembled at the Gladstone club tonight to witness the boxing contest between the colored lad George Dixon, the bantam light champion of the world and.young Johnny Murphy, of Boston, for a purse of $2,000 and a wager of 81,000 a side. Dan Ghoakley, of New York, was refereee. Dixon weigned 115 pounds and Murphy 114}^. Dixon drew blood from Murphy's face in the flrstround. After that the battle and furious for several rounds with no particular advantage on either side. In the tenth round $100 to $50 was offered on Dixon.

Still he pluckily responded to the of time in each round. In the 39th round Murphy ,bleeding and exhausted, was reclining against the ropes too weak to defend himself with Dixon showering blows upon him, when Murpby's second up the sponge and up the fight.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.—12:30 The rumor to the effect that Hon. Cleveland dropped dead in Washington this morning is totally unfounded. Mr. Cleveland arrived here on a morning train from New York, and proceeded directly to the Arlington hotel, whore he is occupying Senator Hiscock's suite of rooms. A few minutes ago Mr. Cleveland having his attention called to the alarming rumor said: "You may tell my friends that I never felt better in my life than I do ab this time."

The conductors, with their white kepis and silk dust coats, are as cosmopolitan and polite as the passengers.

Salt is an absolute essential to. the diet of man. It promotes health in various ways. Many of the functions of the body go better under its influence and without it the blood becomes impoverished. While a complete deprivation of salt would produce disastrous results an excessive use of it would scarcely be harmless. In large doses it ucts as an emetic; in quantities beyond the requirements Oii it irritates the stomach and intestines and sometimes purges., Those who use salt unusually freely almost a! ways suffer more or ess from constipation. To drink large quantities of watpr daily hould be the rule with those svho suffer Tom constipation. Each day the system. ieeds at least two quarts of water, as about hat quantity is used up or thrown out of t every twenty-four houra. Fruit and vegetable foods contain much water, and n tea, coffee, soups, etc., considerable is iaken habitually. In all ways, as stated, about two quarts of water should enter the stomach daily. It is a good plan to drink one or two glasses of water from half an wur or hour before eating breakfast. And t may be either h'ot or cold as preferred. Which ever is used, the water should be slowly sipped. To deluge the stomach with cold water would be to invite dyspep- ;ic troubles. seller cash; 12.15 for seller January; 12.80 for A Woman Who Wonted Her Tooth Fulled. Chicago Herald. Firm; CT©(i7i4.
