The success of the attempt to carry off the water from Smith's pond and abate the nuisance is extremely doubtful. The hole into which tho new 12 inch sewer drains the water from the pond has failed so far to perform the task assigned to it, much to the disappointment of the city officials who planned it. The dry well in the hollow seems to be inadequate to carry off the water and now the hollow be- twenn Seventh and Eighth streets is converted into a pond and from present appearances the only thing accomplished has been to change the location of part of the pond, or in other words to make a new pond.

Either the Goulds or Vanderblltt Said to be the Purchasers. The Chicago Tribune states that President J. J. Mitchell of the Illinois Trust and Saving* Bank is in New York. His trip is for the purpose of negotiating the sale of the Chicago & Alton to either the Goulds or the Van- derbilts. The general opinion Is that the Goulds will secure this valuable- property and make it a part of the Missouri Pacific system. The Morgan-Vanderbilt syndicate it is claimed, has joined hands with Geo. Gould, as it would be to their advantage to unite the Alton and Missouri Pacific systems, and make both contribntary to Vanderbilt lines east from Chicago and St. L <uis. Both Missouri Pacific and Alton stock have taken' a big jump during the last few days, and the proposed deal Is said to be the cause of it. A telegram from New York of yesterday confirms the statement that Mr. Mitchell is in that city for the purpose of negotiating the sale of the Alton. r DON'T MONKEY With your health, It's not healthy.

Spokane, Wash., Deo. 14.—It now seems certain that Fred Wood, the prisoner held here on a double charge of onrglary and highway robbery, and Otto Mattlas, the murderer of H. W. Wall, of Staunton, are one and the same person. 0. Werngrenn, of Thlel's detective agency, arrived from St. Loais today and identified the prisoner as Mattias. Two officers who captured .Wood in the act of committing burglary, shadowed him for two weeks before his arrest, suspecting him of being the fugitive murderer. The prisoner after consulting with an attorney today, confessed that he was guilty of burglary, and will try and break into the penitentiary at Walla Walla in order to escape being taken back to Illinois.

Alum is used by many bakers to whiten their bread, enabling them to use an inferior flour, and it is also employed as a cheap substitute for cream of tartar in the manufacture of baking powder. Its use in bread and baking powder is very detrimental to health, producing dyspepsia and obstinate constipation, and under certain conditions of the human system results in poisoning.

Bailey went to Springfield to attend the convention of Illinois coroners, -.vhich began Its session in the State Capital today. Mr. Bailey was one of the originators of the plan to call a convention of coroners and is chairman of tbe committee on arrangements. The convention is beld for tbe purpose of uniting the coroners of tbe state in an effort to bring about much needed legislation with reference to the oflloe. All the laws bearing on tbe subject of coroners are as old as tbe office itself and are very ambiguous. It is to de- line tbelr duties and rights that tbe coroners desire a bill passed by the Legislature.
