patient just :!() minutes by the
watch and so well satisfied was he
with the improvement shown that
he will not return to the house
When asked as to the probability
of Mr. Blaine's removal in the near
future. Dr. Johnson's reply was
that he never had but one state
ment to make about that: "That
such a contingency was to remote
to be discussed." At present Mr.
Blaine wi.s doing very well,
and it was his condition each day
that concerned him rather than
what it might be one week or one
When asked a day or two ago if

his reply was that he would not
be permitted to do so even if that
was his inclination.
Today was generally observed as
a holiday. Mr. Blaine's house was
brilliantly lighted this evening and
there was every-where maintained

RANGE STOCK IN DANGER.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 20.-Kan
sas, Oklahoma and the West gen
erally are experiencing a genuine
Christmas blizzard today which
threatens not only to block rail
road travel, but also to do great
damage to slock on the ranges
south of Kansas and the strip if it
continues for many hours. Last
night a,driz.ling rain began early in
the evening which continued al
most to day light, when it gave way
to driving snow, the wind having
meantime shifted around to the
northeast and the temperature
growing colder. The snow kept up
all day, ami before night it had de
veloped into a regular blizzard,
coming straight from the frozen
regions of the north. Several
inches of snow fell and drifted
badly. Scattering reports from
Kansas and the Southwest gener
ally show that the railroads are in
trouble from drifted snow in the
cuts on the prairie, and as a rule
trains are all late. Hardly any at
tempt is being made to run trains
on the roads west from Kansas

more intelligent class of Indians
are highly pleased with the pros
pect of the turn legislation in con
gress is apt to take, as indicated by
the report of the last few days.
They argue that in the creation of
a state, with full power conferred
upon them as citizens, they would
have some voice in their own gov
ernment, and that this would be a
big inducement for the breaking
no of their tribal relations. Associa
tion with the whites would very
materially assist in the advance
ment of the educational umt indus
trial institutions of different tribes,
Wolf Robe, oue of the most intelli
gent and progressive Indians in
the Territory, expresses the hope
that the plans advanced by Senator
Perkins may take definite shape
and much good lo the Indians fol
low. An Indian in congress would
be amongst the probabilities.
SEVERED FROM THE 1IODY.
Moiierly, Mo., Dee.2'1. -When the
Wabash fast freight reached here
this morning the remains of a hu
man leg were found wound around
a brake rod. It had been dragged
a long distance over the cross-tits.
When the limb was removed il was
found to be that of a man torn from
his body, and presented a sickening,
spectacle. It was devoid of cloth
ing, the bones were broken i n to
The balance of the body was lo
cated at Warrenton, and the leg
was at once shipped to that point.
From letters found upon t lie body
it is supposed to be that of a young
man named Ruhrer, whose home is
in the country, near Warrenton.
The train was a through freight,
and lie is supposed to have fallen
under the car and had been torn to
pieces while trying to emerge from
a box car after riding out
from some point near St. Louis.

Sr. Louis, Mo., Dec. 20,-Mike Col
lins, a laborer on coutract work, has
undertaken to eat a yard ot pigs'
feet, thrte feet every day for thirty
days, or forfeit $10 and the price of
the feet. The Let was made; on De
cember 1 with O. Weber, a dealer in
pork and pigs' feet, and it was
agreed that Collins should cat them
on O'Fallon street and Sarsfield
lane. The feet are sent over every
day to Lundt's from Weber's facto
ry, and Collins can take his own
time in consuming them on condi
tion that he leaves the bones for the
judges to certify to. Collins was
seen at Lundt's today and eceuic de
termined to win. He did not look
very happy, however, over the pros
pect of having to cat the visible
means of support of a do.en or
more pigs before he could win his
bet. Kvery evening the referees
conn- in and check up the bones
and cremate Uiein in tho stove at
Lundt's. Considerable money is
being wagered on the result.
