'One of the fspans of the i Louisville .and Jefferson% 7 ille bridge, at Louisville, iKy., gave way on the 15th, and carried •down with 'it about sixty men who ^were working on the structure. The loss of life, it is said, will reach fifteen or twenty. Fire at Buffalo destroyed tho. Arcade blocks and the Yerxn building, adjoining. T-he loss will reach almost a million. • Four men •who robbed the fast train on the Southern Pacific, near Duvall, Tex., were captured. One resisted and •was shot.

The iwelve men necessary to try Prendergast, murderer of the late Mayor Harrison of Chicago, have been secured. Advices from Hawaii up to the 4th say that "by Cleveland's arrangement with England, her soldiers are to land and protect the queen after the United States troops have seated her on the throne. A joint protectorate is planned like that of Samoa. At the unanimous and urgent demand of American citizens, the provisional government has decided to resist to the utmost extremity any attempt to overthrow by •Ui-ited- States force without authority from congress. Leading citizens will be generally foremost in defense. Indignation is at white heat There will be no surrender to a rotten Kanaka despotism or its Washington abettors.

O, puft •& Oo.'s weekly Teviiiw of trade says: "it is proof (ft the enormous v tftlity of tho country that, while mills are stopping- iiti <every direction. *i»d the army of unemployed is larger than it has been for many years, other mills a,rc constantly starting up to answer the dcnuind which a fcingte .year of, unprecedented disaster has only diminished. In dustry ! is doing nothing on speculation, Init the needs which the wonderful growth and past prosperity of the people have created are pressing upon i supplies exhausted by months of reduced production. Trade still waits as much as it can, and yet tlie volume, of business on a mere I hand-to-mouth basis is such as ' would have been called large a few years ago. Measured by clearing house exchange it is 19 per cent less than a year ago, the decrease being greater at the west and south and less at the enst. Measured by railroad earnings it is 13.U per cent less than a year | ago. the largest decrease of any week since September, partly because passenger increase no longer masks freight decrease and , partly because of demoralization in 1 trunk line freights, but while the decrease on those lines is 11.0 per cent it is 23.3 on western wheat-carrying roads and 20.1 on Pacific roads reporting. "Failures are numerous and large— 230 in the United States for the week, against 270 last year, and 40 in Canada, against 25 last year." THE NATIONAL TREASURY.

Thousands of people have gone to their deaths with Uright's Disease of the Kidneys and Diabetes, without suspecting the nature of their trouble until within a- month or two of the grave. It is now declared by one of the most reputable drug associations in the country that these kidney troubles are the result of urasmic poisoning and that a certain cure has been d vered. The majority of people v tind health and strength gradui. j failing, either have no suspicion oi ihe nature of the trouble or having always been told that Uright's disease could never be cured have i-hrunk from the knowledge that they were victims of it. Now that a cure has been discovered, however, there need be no hesitation in learning what indicates the disease and each cas-e can be tested at home by the one interested without either expense or inconvenience. Progressive physicians are now agreed that for the several months beiore child-birth all women are especially subject to kidney troubles and tiiat tests should be made during tins time to determine whether sugar or albumen indicate kidney disease. The many cases of uruimio convulsions occasioning death at or preceding child-birth are due to this, which is too often overlooked or unsuspected. From all this it would feeern a plain duty to take advartage of ihe offer of The American Drug Association, whose address is Coclmower Building, Cincinnati, Ohio. The oll'er i-s that to each person sending their address a test outfit including full directions and apparatus for tho most accurate test for Uright's Disease and Diabetes will be sent securely packed in a wood case free of cost. The association is well known to us and can be depended upon to do jui>t what they say. Kx-Coji>;re»suiau Murphy's Funeral. DAVKNPOIJT, J 0 \va, Dec. 10.—The funeral of ex-Congressman J. H.
