No healthy person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the name as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the HAinc treatment. Kemain quiet
ly at home anl take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
pIMe ri-covi ry is sure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency ot la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that lias not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

"I have just recovered from a sec

says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of
the leader, Mexica Texas. "In the
latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough remedy, and I thin with
considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for the first attnek. The
second attack, I am ratsiied. would
have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy,
as I had to go to bed . in about six
hours after being struck with it,
while in the first case I was able to
atiend to business about two days

1 wo distinguished visitors to Wash
ington ' recently were T. M. Buffington,
president of tho Cherokee senate, and E.
C Boudinot, of the Cherokee Nation.
Both are half breeds of commanding
stature. Their mission was to ratify, as
representatives of the nation, the sale vi
the Cherokee strip to the government.
In speaking of tho civilization of tle
CherokeesMr. Boudinot said: "Few jkjo
ple in the States realize that we have a
little world practically among ourselves,
and one of the most complete govern
ments in existence. Our land is most
fertile, and we raise all the grains of the
west, and also cotton and tobacco. We
receive about $150,000 interest from the
federal government, and with that we
support ours. We have our own con
gress, the house of representatives hav
ing forty members, and our senate, of
which Mr. Buffington is president, eight
een. Our laws are printed in both Eng
lish and Cherokee. We have had a
written code for seventy years.
"We have our judiciary, composed of
minor courts as well as district and su
preme. All proceedings, however, are
carried on in the English language. The
system of public schools is unsurpassed,
as we have 103 public and two high
schools or academies. The scholastic
population is between 4,000 and 5,000,
and the statistics show that about nine
tenths attend regularly. There is an
orphan asylum, and all orphans are
taken there and kept until old enough to
shift for themselves. Of course we keep
the girls longer than the boys unless we
find good homes for them. Our chil
dren in the schools and the asylum are
taught industrial pursuits also. Our
percentage of criminals is very light."
An Ingenious Knitting Machine.
A parallel knitting machine is a recent
invention, designed to produce various
forms of garments, such as corsets,
trousers, combination garments, gloves,
stockings, etc., in various patterns and
colors, and of wool, silk or cotton, with
or without interwoven rubber thread.
In this ingenious mechanism the needle
beds are formed of permanent and re
movable straps of steel, separated by
flanges or projections and clamped in
position in the frame of the machine by
means of set screws. The jacks are
formed on a bar, to correspond with the
width of the needle space divisions, and
the cams are mounted upon a plate,
being lifted out of action as the cam
carriage travels along the slide bar by
stops and a slotted plate.
At the bottom of each bed rollers car
rying Jacquard cards are mounted upon
rocking arms, these cards being caused
to act upon the projecting . tails of the
needles by levers and 6lide bars operated
by cams on the shaft. Two or more
swiveling bobbins are used for producing
change of colors and stripes, the num
ber of swivels being determined by a
pattern chain. Rubber thread is insert
ed by an additional thread carrier and
stops. New York Telegram.
An invention to lighten the labors of
hotel and restaurant waiters has been
perfected by Thomas E. Thompson, of
Chicago. The invention has some points
in common with the parcel railways now
in use in the large dry goods stores and
is to consist of a train of slow moving
cars, which, starting in and operated
from the kitchen, will make the circuit
of the dining room at a walking pace.
The cars, which will be constructed in
two tiers or shelves, will be two feet
long by eight inches wide and will carry
a tray made to fit them.
The waiter, on taking a guest's order,
will place a tray on the moving train,
whence it will go direct to the kitchen
to be filled and then returned by the
same route. When used in lunch coun
ters the train can be arranged to run un
der the counter within easy reach of the
waiter. The motive power will be elec
tricity, and the inventor claims that his
machine will insure prompt service and
cause a great saving in help. Philadel
Gloving Buildings Across a River.
A block of houses at Lawrenceville,
Pa., was recently moved across the Al
leghany river to Pittsburg. The under
taking seemed to be difficult, but it was
accomplished successfully. The build
ings were first taken off their founda
tions, and turned by jacks and blocks to
I a position at right angles with the river.
Half a dozen sand flats or floats were
l then lashed together and tied up to the
shore. On each float three towers of
blocks were built to the height of about
eighteen feet, heavy scantlings were ad
justed to the river bank, and by means
of ropes, rollers and pulleys the row of
houses was moved onto the block foun
dation aboard the floats. Tugboats were
next brought into service, and in due
time the buildings were towed across
the Alleghany and disembarked at the
new site. New York Post.
A Lively Election.
According to the Buenos Ayres Herald,
elections in Argentina are exciting af
fairs. . At the recent election at Buenos
Ayres policemen armed with swords and
revolvers were placed at all the street
corners, the polling places were occu
pied with strong detachments of police,
and policemen armed with rifles were
posted on the roofs of adjoining houses.
The fire brigade, fully armed, was con
centrated in the central police depart
ment and the troops of the garrison were
massed just outside the city. Every
citizen elector was armed with a re
volver, and the political clubs swarmed
with men armed with rifles and re
volvers. The electoral college of 1892 will be
composed of 444 members. There will
! be 356 representatives in the next house.
The basis of representation is one mem

OrM Feats of btrength.
London has Ituen entertained lately
feats of strength that are certainly re
markable and probably nnsurpiisxed in
tuoklern time. First there was a mau
named riuudow, who was an enormously
I powerful man; ho was succeeded by
Sampson, and ho in turn by an Iritsh
' American named Sullivan. Curiously,
tho three names lnn with the letter S,
which is also the initial of "strength,"
and of the "(Jret-k word for strength
(sthenos). Sullivan, the latest comer, is
thirty years of age, stands 5 feet 8
inches in height, and weighs 168 pounds.
His appearance presents little that is un
usual in the way of muscular develop
ment, and his biceps are neither very
large nor wonderfully rigid. It is in his
neck and jaw that his strength chiefly
lies, and the majority of his feats are
such as bring this peculiarity into special
I At an exhibition given in London he
fastened a chain to a 56-pound weight,
j and the other end being griped be
: tween his teeth, swung himself around
! and around until the twirling chain as
sumed a nearly horizontal line. The
feat was repeated with the weigUt
doubled, and as the performer, with
I both hands to his hips and using every
sinew in his frame, swirled around and
around the audience wondered with
anxiety what would happen if one of
the links should fly asunder. The most
remarkable feat, however, that Sullivan
performed was the lifting of an elephant
by his teeth. It was a "baby," 'tis true,
but it weighed about 1,800 pounds and
was lifted a clear three inches from the
ground, its whole weight pendent from
the jaw of the man above.
Sullivan was not successful in an at
tempt to break a chain with his arm,
having injured this limb on the previous
night. lie succeeded, however, in prov
ing that his prowess was not entirely
confined to feats with his teeth by lift
ing a barrel of water, weighing 560
pounds, with the middle finger of his
right hand. Harper's Young People.
A Rare Find In Baltimore.
A few days ago Mrs. Andrew Reid,
Jr., of Mount Vernon place, who is a
native of France, and whose brother is
an artist in Paris, made one of the rich
est art discoveries that has ever come to
light in Baltimore. Mrs. Reid is a great
lover of art and knows a good picture
when she sees one. For a long time she
has been in the habit of hunting through
secondhand stores for old paintings.
Several days ago, by chance, she walked
into a 6tore on North Charles street.
There she saw a dilapidated looking old
picture, which represented the head of a
French peasant. At first she did not
pay much attention to the picture, but
went on to examine the other old things
in the store. By chance she returned to
the picture, and it struck her as being a
remarkably fine piece of art work. She
turned it over and looked on the back,
and there was the artist's name. Before
her was one of the most valuable pictures
She immediately called the dealer and
asked the price of the picture. He stag
gered her by asking twenty dollars. She
paid the price, took the picture home
with her, and now it cannot be bought
for less than thousands.
It was a rich find, truly, as there are
only two other pictures in Baltimore by
the same artist. The picture is by Jean
Baptist Greuze, and on the back of it
is "Jean Baptiste Greuze, 1725 to 1808."
Mr. William T. Walters owns one of the
pictures, for which he paid a big price,
and Mr.Leonce Robillon owns the other.
Mr. Walters viewed Mrs. Reid's picture
yesterday and pronounced it genuine.
He says it is worth thousands of dollars.
Old Bones Seized.
During the recent storm the heavy
surf washed away several feet of the
beach between Sandy Hook and Sperma
ceti Cove, N. J. In one place where the
sea had a clean sweep fifteen feet of the
beach was upturned, and a big pile of
human bones was exhumed. A number
of bullets were found among the skele
tons. Spanish coin 100 years old and a
number of brass buttons with the nu
merals 4 and 0 were also found in the
mass. It is known that both American
and British soldiers were encamped on
Sandy Hook at various times during the
Revolutionary war, but there is no rec
ord of any burying ground ever having
been there. The bones and other relics
have been seized by relic hunters. New
A Divorce from a Dead Man.
A very peculiar case is reported from
Paterson, N. J., where a woman desires
to get a divorce from a dead man, or
rather to get her marriage set aside.
Her rst husband enlisted in the war
and was killed. She married again, and
at the death of her second husband she
ascertained that her second marriage
deprived her of the benefits of the law.
Subsequently she learned that her sec
ond marriage was bigamous, husband
No. 2 having a wife living at the time
of his marriage to her. This marriage,
she thinks, can be set aside as null and
void, and then she will be able to pro
cure a widow's pension.
High Prices for Old Silver
One of the most remarkable sales of
old silver ever held was at Edinburgh
lately. It included pieces belonging to
the late Earl of Dunmore and the serv
ice of St. Martin's abbey in Perthshire.
Several pieces were bought on commis
sion from New York. The highest price
ever obtained for old silver, eighty dol
lars an ounce, was given for an early
Italian double handled cup and saucer,
$420 being the price. The highest price
heretofore had, been fifty dollars an
ounce. London Letter.
A Valuable Sunken Boat.
An effort is to be made to raise the
old British treasure ship Hussar, which
was sunk near Hell Gate, Nov. 2o, 1780.
She is said to have carried $4,000,000,
but all efforts to raise her have been
frustrated by the heavy tides and cur
rents that sweep through the sound.
