It uteals upon its victim lika a tbief in the night, the at tack being often unheralded by eyen the ordinary symptoms of a cold. The heavy breathing and hollow cough strike terror to any mother's heart, even though she is accustomed to the sound and knows how to treat her child. There are a few simple home remedies that can be quickly applied, and arc almost always efficacious in spasmodic croup, and are also useful in cases of laryngitis and the first stage of true or membranous croup. The hot method because one of the safest and least likely to produce unpleasant after results of inducing vomiting to get rid of the accumulation of phlegm, is to crive a solution of alum and sugar in hot water in the following propportions: A rounded tea.'poonfull of powdered alum and the same quantity of sugar dissolved in half a teacupful of boiling water This should be taken as hot as the patient can be induced to drink it. It will quickly produce nausea and vomiting As soon as the stomach is fully relieved the nausea usually disappears. Smaller quantities of other drugs, like the tartar emetic in squill, are perhaps more easily .administered, but they are apt to be more l-rt-oatrating and mora lasting iu unplcas aut results. It is also important to pro duce some external irritation gvt the parts affected. With little children this requires care. Mustard is too teasini: and troublesome. Moisten the end of the finger with turpentine, rub the throat and lungs thoroughly with it. Then wring ;is dry as possible a flannel compress out of hot water, sprinkle a little camphor over the .surface and apply as warm a:s can be borne, cover at once with dry flan nel and renew at least every half hour. If the skin becomes to red and sensative the turpentine can be omitted after a while. The temperature of the room should be kept as high as from 85 to DO degrees. In nine cfues out of ten these remedies will relieve an attack of spas modic croup in a few hours. At any rate they can be used most beneficially while waiting for a physician, who should, be called at one in all severe cases. Acute laryngitis is often mistaken for membran ous croup. These remedies were learned during a sharp attack of the former when the life of a baby seventeen months old seemed trembling for many hours in the balance. The fumes from slacking lime were also tried with marked benefit. Whenever the baby slept a large pail con taining a lump of unslacked lime wrs placed near the edge of the cradle and boiling water poured into it, A blanket was held ovsr the crib in such a way that the fumes were confined and the baby compelled to inhale them. This was kej t up from fifteen to twenty minutes at a time, small pieces of fresh lime being constantly thrown into the pail and water ad .led as it was needed. Another important thing to remember is to keep the air in the sick room as moist as possible. In this case the desii ed effect was produced by keeping a large body of water constantly boiling over the llame of a small gasoline stove, brought into the room for that purpose. In milder attacks & shallow pan of boil ing water on the heating stoye will suffice. DEPARTMENT COMMANDER. The election of a department cor. - niauder for the G. A. R. will occur at the annual meeting in Lincoln on February 29th, and The Herald notes with pleas ure that there are no more prominent names mentioned for that honorable po s tion than that of Major J. B. Davis, of Wahoo. Major Davis is an old citien of Nebraska, was a yoluntter soldier, having enlisted 1862 in the New York infantry, and was a member of the cele brated one hundred and twenty-second New York; was elected Major, went through fourteen battles, and was wound ed in the battle of Gettysburg. This regiment was attached to the old 'ixth corps, which was considered oni of the strongest in the army. The IIekiu lias taken the above statement of fact from the Wahoo Wusjk which espouses Major Davis election very earnestly. The Herald hopes the G. A. R. may have the good fortune o si cure Major J).ivis as commander for the eu 0tiing year. Valentine at Warrick's. dCt Warrick offers low prices oo Wall Pa per.

All persons set tling on lands under the provisions of thin act shall maintain a continual per sonal resident of three years before ob taining title. Considerable is baing said about im portant gold discoveries at Appleton City, Mo. The fact is Missouri does not need gold mines. She has, as iar as nature goes, one of the finest states in the Union, but so long as it contains such a moss-backed, God-forsaken class of people as they have down there it will take a good many gold miues with lots of funerals to eyer make anything out of her bountiful resources. It is in just such states as Missouri that modern democracy is at home. It is in such soil, with such surroundings, that democracy is said to be indigineous it grows and flourishes. But when democracy lias to rustle with a live, energetic people, like they have up in Dakota, and run against a Echoolhoase at every cross-road, it is blighted and withered like a frozen plant.

Colby, Cap tain Hill, Captain Palmer and other war like chieftans put in an appearance ai the opera hore to greet the crowd that hail already assembled. The Express says they had a great time; that Company C, of Beatrice, is a daisy and that ?he Governor did himself proud. In these militia receptions TnE IIkkald calls to mind the unpleasant fact thatw too were to have had a militia company, but the Governor said the regiment was full and shut us out. Nevertheless a good many companies have been received since we were debarred. Eyerything is peaceable down here, towever, and vre have lost no sleep or property because the Governor gave us the colli shoulder Bags' s Cherry Cough Syrup, Is warranted for all that the label calls for, so if it does not relieve your cough you can call at our store and the money will be refunded to you.

G." in Demoresfs Monthly. EXECUTIONERS PAR EXCELLENCE. Story or Manrood, the English Hangman. A Disgusting Performance. The two men who loomed before the gen eral public as executioners par excellence were Marwood, the English hangman, and Isaacs, who from time to time has experi mented i:i the Tombs. I have Marwood's own word for it that at the last moment, after the cap is pulled over the face, under pretence of arranging the nooso more care fully, the presses with his thumb quickly and with great force just below the Adam's apple with the intent successful, as he claims, of depriving the condemned of consciousness. Whether this is a desirable feaUu e or not, I leave to hangmen. The ordinary mind re volts from any personal aid to glory, prefer ring to leave all literal lulling to the appli ances of a physical nature provided for that purpose. ilarwood was a voluptuary in his calling, and in moments of i.ithrieQr found greatest pleasure in toying with the- necks and throats of his companions. On one occasion when an actor, well known and highly esteemed in this city, was on a grand tour through the English provinces, pa going to his dressing room he found a party of coaviviajists, who had called to pay him their respects. There was the sheriff, quite a dignitary abroad, other officials and JIar wood, the hangman. Clad in the classic garb of Ilamlet, Prince of Daii'.'s, tho actor was ft picture of manly beauty, and Marwood, who had been drink ing freely, placing his hands upon tho actor's bust, said, ''What a superb neck you have. How I would like to put tho rojxs about your throat." Conversation turned uK)u tho pleas ant performance of this cheery companion, und ho gavo practical illustration of his t hroat pushing custom, very much to the an noyance pf the actor, lu tho party was an American, Upon him Marwood attempted to experiment, but be coming somewhat rough in his treatment the American, who could stand it no longer aad w ho was intensely disgusted by the entire procedure, drew ofT and with appropriate ex clamation struck tho little nuisance squarely jn the jaw, knocking him with groat force against a full length mirror, which was shat tered into fragments. That that ended tho call may be well imagined. Joe Howard in Sew York Graphic. - HERALD, Pla'1ai:j - a dup.hau or blackmail. London Vampires Who Make a Living Oat of American lJulne i:uterpries. It has recently come to the knowledge of American capitalists and promoters that there is a systematic and carefully planned bureau of blackmail in existence in London, tho workings of which are concealed from the public, but which have proven a thorn in tho sido of numerous American enter prises, no far as known, tuo ueau or tuo bureau is a man who moves in fair business and social circles in London and has influ ence in two or three newspaper offices, in cluding a "financial'' paper. Ho has a num ber of eorresiondeuts on this sido of tho water, where he formerly lived for a num ber of years. They keep him informed as to Americans who go abroad to raise money for tho promotion of enterprises of various kinds. The minutest details of these enterprises are ascertained by theso correspondents, in order to find any possible flaws. On the arrival of an American m London, to present to the bankers there any scheme of financial cooperation, ho is called upon by the head of the bureau, who delicately proffers his services. If these are accepted and terms agreed upon sufficiently exorbi tant, all goes well. If not the unfortunate American finds his project assailed in a part of the press and attacked in circles where tho blackmailers move. Often ho turns about and comes home disgusted, realizing how hopeless it is to fight away from home. If he shows battlo he may expect to bo bled by lawyers. If ho buys peace, as he can, an army of smaller blackmailers spring up to stick him. His best Kursc is to ignore them all, of course. But few men havo tho courage to do that. A shrewd American promoter who told of theso things from experience, added this ad vice: "Tho best way to bo rid of the vam pires is to keep yourself and your project a secret. If you go to Loudon to raise money, go to on obscure hotel and take lodgings. Keep away from clubs and exchanges. Deal only with the bankers. Give them tho fullest opportunity of investigation. When you get your money como away as secretly as you went. Why, I got fjOo.OOO in London once, and had a bogus suit brought to enjoin mo from carrying it out of tlio country until I should have settled a commission bill I had never dreamed of contracting. 'S-r New York Tribune, Pompous Funeral Displays. For twenty years or more there has been a loud protest jn New York, from tho press and from tho pulpit, against extravagance at funerals, but it does not seem to have dono a tit of good. The extravagance is as great r'oday as it ever was, and it sometimes seems liven greater. The long lines of carriages lollow jug hearses fcq tho cemeteries are not shortened, aud the heaps of costly flowers, i.istead of diminishing, seem to grow larger. r; is not uncommon to see a couple of car riages crammed with floral offerings rdono in a funeral procession, while the hcarso also carries a fair share. The custom of sending expensive tributes of flowers to lie upon cof fins or be banked around tho room is almost a mania. It has been preached against, writ ten against, condemned in a hundred ways, but it still goes on. Evon the request ia tho published death notices, "Please omit flow ers," is wholly disregarded. Tho flowers are piled in up to the lost moment, aud then there is o small mountain of them to be taken to tho cemetery, where they rot in a few days and have to be raked away as rub bish. All efforts to abate the flower nuisance (for that's what it really is) have thus far wholly failed, and the outlay to keep it go ing is as reckless and lavish as ever. Tho carriage abuse also holds its own, and not only that, but very often the occupants of many of the carriages fill themselves with whisky from flasks or bottles on the way to the cemeteries or when returning, and get up scenes of the most scandalous kind. In some cases; in fact, a funeral is simply a ca rousal, with all. that (.he word implies. Per sons are sometimes seen standing by an open grave so drunk that the3' are in danger of tumbling in. Many of the f unerals that take place in New York are no credit to religion, or civilization at any rate. New York Cor. Detroit Free Press. The Period of Retarded Growth. It will be noticed tna? whereas the fgo of most retarded growth for the boy is about 13, and the age of most rapid growth (after tho first two or three years) is about 10, the corresponding ages for girls seem to be about 12 and 13 respectively. The period of retarded growth seems to last longer with boys than with girls. A more important portion of the total growth seems, on the average, to be gahed by boys between tho ages of 13 and 1C than by the girls bet ween tho ages of 13 and 15 (their time usually of most rapid growth). But, on the contrary, during the time from birth to the age of 1 7, boys, as a rule, acquire a smallt-r portion of their full growth than girl;? dq between birth and the ago of 15. In tho great majority of cases girls add very little to their height after 15, though of course thero are man' ex ceptions. Boj's, on tho other hand, usually add two or throe inches to their height after 10. It is noteworthy that when girls grow after 15 such growth is nearly always accom panied by certain irregularities, which ap pear to indionte some, t-loiilar gelation in tho case of such abnormal' ot:" irregular growth a. undoubtedly exists in tho case of the rapid growth always observed at alout UiQ tiniQ pi puberty. Richard A. Proctor. Karn and Pence Advertlfiuj;. When barns were first pitched upon as sign bearers tho advertising contractors had no difficulty in obtaining the priYilega in return for painting tho roof. Paint is a standard preservation of shingles, and tho thrifty Jor :vy or Pennsylvania farmer jumped at the chance of getting his roofs painted for noth ing. Then cpmi?tition stepped in. Some body else wanted to be advertised in such conspicuous places, and was willing to paint the entire bam and farm noise as well for the privilege. In this way tho price has ri:;cn until some thrifty farmers have ln-oa able to get long term contracts at ."0 per year for the use of their barns or fences, which are to be kept in good condition by tho advertising company. Farms with good barns near tho railways or great highways liave thus enhanced in selling value, and tho owner chuckles to himself as he jingles hid stipend. New York Graphic. A Kailway for the Swamps. A railway, consisting of a chain formed of a series of flat plates, 17 inches long and 13 inches wide, made of hard wood, riveted be tween two steel plates, is the latest solution of the problem of an endless railway, that is, a road which is as much a )art of the vehicle as the wheels are. As tho wheel revolves it moves along the bottom plate of the chain and brings the next plate jiito positisu with out undue strain or friction. It has been used to good purposo ia South America, and i3 now being used in the swampy land in i Germany, where large beet root plantations are. New York Sun.
