Liquor Houses Closed.
Pus Moinks, I., Feb. 2. There is not
a wholesale liquor house open in the city
tonight. The three that had been hold
ing permits to sell for legitimate pur
poses were all doing business under a
firm name, such a McCormicU 6c Co."
Judge Giveu holds that a permit can
issue properly to only one person, and
that the person so named thall be the
only one who shall sell or deliver the
liquors. Since these firms all have done
business under the firm name, the judge
holds that they have violated the permit,
so their stock is now under seizure and
their cases will come up at the next term
of court.
Reduced Ratorto Omaha.
Ciiicaoo, Feb. . A big break was
made yesterday hi freight rates between
Chicago and Omaha, the reductions on
several classes averaging 50 per cent.
First class was reduced froai 75 to 40
cents per 100 pounds, and other classes
in proportion. low roads hail up to
this time been able to hold up their
through rates, but the war started by the
Hurliugtim fc Northern in the northwest
was too much of a pressure, and the
freight officials west at once began to
contract for business on a lower bais.
This precipitated yesterday' break. Lute
in the afternoon the demoralization
reached the Kansas City roads and the
same schedule as yesterday to Omaha
will be put in to-day to southwestern
Missouri river point3.
Iowa's Railway Fight.
Ds.s Moines, la.. Feb., :J. The railroad
right was formally precipitated in the se
nate yesterday afternoon in a long iind
exciting session. The railroad committee
reported favorably on the bill to reduce
passenger fares to 2 cents a mile. The
bill was warmly supported by Senators
Young, McVay and Finn. A number of
other senators, while not absolutely op
posed to the proposed reduction, held
that the people of the state were more in
terested in securing lower freight rafts
than lower passenger fare. ?o they in
troduced motions and amendments of
ouc kind or another to have the bill re
ferred back to the committers until the
freight matters could be brought up. The
whole tession was consumed in lighting
this proposition, and finally a motion pre
vailed to recommit the whole matter to
tlie committee, with instructions to con
sider the freight matter first, or at least
as fcotn as the other. Several telegraphic
protests have been received from work
iagenen against this 2-cent fare bill. claim
that, if passed, the railroads would retal
iate by cutting down the wages of their
emnlores. Manv business men are send
ing in protests also on the ground that
thy are morn interested in getting "lower
freight rates. Senator IIarli received
yesterday a lengthy protest to the bill
signed by sixty six members of thelJroth
erdood of Locomotive Engineers and
Firemen at Crest on. Tiic sintimcnt
against the bill, or against having it con
sidered first in preference to freight re
duction, is growing in strength daily.

Big Muddy Rising at Kansas City.
Kansas City. Mo., Feb. 2.- The Mis
souri river registered it 2-10 feet above
the low water mark this morning and is
riing at the rate of four inches in twenty-four
hours. The January rise has set
in, but there is no likelihood that it will
reacli th height attained la.-t year. Tli?
river o:i December 21 w;n 1-10 fct t
above the low water mark, winch is the
lowest point 'reached m i.i.;ny years.
About two miles above Ouindar's. a large
epiantity of broken ice has become
wedged in the curve of fh? river, but b: -low
this there is comparatively little ice.
The ice gorge at Lawrence, Kan., broke
this morning and the volnme oT ice
down the Kav and stopped just above
the Hock Island bridge, near Wyandotte.
Part of the temporary bridge gave way
tonight, and it now looks as if I lie Union
Pacific and several other I nidges would
go also.
aiic j'.xporirinMii s uT ii Vt-i' M-s Inventor
Yankee (irauilmotliors Viinlieatel.
There nre a p;reat iiia?iy interesting charac
ters among the inventors who yearly troor
down to Washington to sci about their
patent-;. One of these men, Williian Iioekcrt,
of Yonkors, talkeil his hearers into a state of
enthusiasm the other day about the medical
qualities of sulphur. Mr. Heckert says that
in reading the history of Italy and other
volcanic regions, he found that periods of
freedom from epidemic disease correspond.
with periods of volcanic activit y. Iu com
paring labor statistics he found one trade in
which consumption was im'.::ioivn, that of
sulphuric acid making. It occurred to him
that the antiseptic properties of the sulphur
fumes killed tho disease germs in all these
cases. His wife was a hopeless consumptive.
He began having her inhale continuously tlu
fumes given eff by tho boiling of ordhiarj
floured sulphur in water. To his delight sho
began to mend, and in time wa.-; completely
cured. In other cases, the names and dates
of which are too numerous for rejetitio:i, hi
was successful.
"While Mr. Heckert patents man;,- of his
ideas he is quite willing that the consump
tive public should have the full benefit of
this. Tho apparatus is simply a glass retort
with a spirit lamp beneath and a tr.!o from
which the patients may fill his lungs with
the sulphur vapors. A solution of common
sulphur and water boiling in the retort wiil
produce the necessary vapor. So firmly con
vince of the feasibility of the remedy has its
discoverer become, that nothing but his busy
life has prevented his urging some wealthy
philanthropist to open a small hospital for
consumptives, where it may bo given a fair
public trial.
Many an old custom , rcme:!- cr rule of
health had its root as firmly bonded in the
truth tis the most new fancied of modern
scientific maxims. Probably no one of tho
endless generations of iiitlii Yankees whose
grandmothers have dosed them with molasses
and brimstone, was ever convinced that tho
medicine really did him any goo.!. In fact
nothing more than Dickens' familiar delinea
tions of the motherly Mrs. Squovrs treating
her young charges to this nauseous mess is
needed to render sulphur a discredited
remedy. Yet if the word of this simple
hearted inventor and those of some who
have taken up the study of th" question arc
to be accepted, sulphur is the king of pana
ceas. "Washington Cor. New York Tribune.
Clothing; for Winter.
One of the most common faults of our
northern people is wearing an eeess of cloth
ing. One has only to look about hi:n to note
ladies, even early in the season, wrapped iu
furs, plush cloaks and other thick eov;Tiiif-s,
while any number of men ere to bo s?en v. iLh
overcoats sufficiently her:vy to protect th.-m
from the severest cold in winter. To thus
early become accustomed to such clothing is,
of course, unwise in the extreme, and launy
must eventually pay the penalty of the habit.
"Leave off your winter clothes late in .the
spring and put them on early in tho autumn,"
is a wise injunction, but it must not be liter
ally rendered. One should not. of course,
thus enrly assume throughout bis heaviest
clothing, but the change shn'.ild bo made
gradually. To put on warm under flannel?
early in the autumn is a sensible rule for rdl
to follow. Equally as good a rule is to wear
the fall overcoat as lath a3 one can and be
comfortable. Rather than trust entirely to
clothing to keep warm, we sh.add depend
much upon exercise, ami if feo heavy vrraps
or overcoats are worn, tunt cannot be taken
in sufficient amount to maintain good health,
or whea indulged in the body is hablo to !
como overheated, und a "cold' is generaliy
the consequence. A very common error with
men oftener then women, i3 to wear, even in
tho coldest weather, too heavy outer cloth

According to private correspond-, rco
from Ilerliii, Prince Dismarck has Ix'ci
considerably troubled of late by the e fleet
of tlie bullet wound be received so manv
years ago from the revolver of a would
be assassin. Many people have forgotten
even the circumstance that the great
German chancellor was s murderously
attacked by tho youth Blind, but ns a
matter of fact five shots were discharged
at him, and it ws smiply owing to tho
sturdy way in which he grased hi? as
sailant's arm that only one of them took
eltect. This bullet glanced oif one of the
chancellor's lower ribs, and a bony cx
cresence which developed i:i consequence
still marks tho place.
As it turned out, too, Bismarck's, ri d:
was by no means at an end when he
grappled with and seized his assailant. A
military guard hurried up :i hearing the
chancellor's shouts, and the impulse of
the foremost of these stalwart Privsiau
grenadiers, on seeing a comparatively
feeble slrinpling being b.eid and seemingly
maltreated bv a ponderous man with a
bald head for l;i .march's hat had fallen
