Ernest C. Amu I Shot Twice Near a, Wyo
Cheyenne, Jan. 19. Ernest C.
Ames, a Lincoln, Neb., lawyer and
mining expert, was shot today at Sil
ver Crown, twenty miles north of here,
by Horace Adams.
Ames, accompanied by George C
Ciasoo, a mining man who owns some
properties in the Silver Crown dis
trict, went to the camp today to make
an examination of the Copper King j
mine, which had been relocated by
Clason. They were met at the mine
by Adams, aresident of Silver Crown,
who disputed their right to make the
examination, claiming that his father
owned the property, having located it
many years ago.
Ames and Clason maintained their
rights, when Adams, it is alleged,
rushed at them with a pick. Before
fore reaching them he dropped the
pick and drew a pistol.
Several shots were fired. The first
struck a button on Ames coat and was
thrown to one side, inflicting a fleBh
wound in the stomach. The last shot
struck Ames in the right leg and be
fell to the ground, whereupon Adams
Ames was brought to Cheyenne and
given medical attention. Adams came

The speaker held that this age was
one of great works and little faith; an
research, investigation and
doubt. We of this century were bant
upon probing into the secrets and
tabultating everything. Ghosts,
witches an phantoms were relegated
to the post and God himself to many
seemed a far off hypothetical person
age. Although the age was thus so ma
terialistic, the speaker said he bad one
prayer for it, and that was that God
would manifest Himself in some signal
manner and thus turn the investiga
tion Godward. He recounted how at
the beginning of the nineteenth cen
tury there had been a marvelous
manifestation of the power of God,
The country at that time was in the
midst of infidelity, brought about
through several causes. The effect of
the revolutionary war had been detri
mental; the overthrowing over tern
poral power had also had a vitiating
effect upon spiritual matters; the in
fluence of tbe French people then in
the fury of atheism had also been evil
But admist all these influences and
when scepticism wns at its height, a
revival swept over the country with
miraculous power and thousands were
converted to the Christian religion.

Seven Remain to Inhabit Taat
of the Harsnonlata.
Writing of communistic experiments,
Arthur Henry draws this dramatic pic
ture of the decline of the Harmonists:
At the present time, 23 years later
than that at which Aaron Williams
wrote, there are but seven members
of the Society of Harmonists. Four
aged women and one man. all over 70,
and John Duss and wife, who are about
40. are all that remain of this once
prosperous hive of people. Most of
the factories have disappeared. The
great barns that once sheltered the
hundreds of cattle are empty. The
flocks and herds are gone. The broad
fields are untended. The town, while
still preserving its ancient semblance,

houses, hotel, and store are all rented.
Many of those now occupying the
quaint, vine-covered dwellings work in

employed to do the little labor still
required by the society. Few of the
people now living at Economy know
anything even of the history of the
former inhabitants. Not one in twen
ty can point out to you where the sur
viving Harmonists reside. These aged
remnants of the society are seldom
seen. Now and then two of the more
active women appear hand In hand and
walk slowly, silently through the street
to the store or wine cellar, to the meet
ing-house, or garden. Joint possessors
of a vast estate, they dres3 in plain,
old-fashioned gowns of cali -o. or ging
ham, grow what vegetables they still
have strength to care for, and busy
themselves from dawn to dark about
their households. It has been many
years since any of the?e ag?d ones have
needed to work at all. Whatever they
desired would have been theirs for the
asking. But the greatest distress that
can befall them is to fall for a day
in the little strength still left them, to
do the work o their house and gar
den. While celibacy was thus operat
ing at Harmony other causes were
working the gradual withering of the
communities elsewhere. In January,
1857, an inventory showed the Wall
lngford and Oneida Perfectionists to
be worth over $67,000. In the next 10
years, their net profits amounted to
$180,000. In 1874 they were worth over
half a million. Tet today, still con

This is what Thomas Edison said
in reply to a question addressed him
by an agnostic: "Why, after years of
watching the processes of nature, I can
no more doubt the existence of an in
telligence that is running things than
I do the existence of myself. Take, for
vTR-nnlf. the substance water that
forms the crystal known as ice. Now,
the . a-e hundreds of combinations
that form crystals, and every one ot
them save that of ice sinks in water.
Ice, I say, doesn't. And it is rather
luck for us mortals, for If it had done
bo we would all be dead. Why
Simply because if ice sank to the bot
tom of rivers, lakes an oceans as fast
as it froze, those places would1 be
frozen up, and there would be no water
left. That is only one example out
of thousands that to me prove beyond
the possibility of a doubt that some
vast intelligence is governing this and
other planets." Cincinnati Enquirer,

It is absolutely nseless to expect a
surgical operation to cure cancer, or
any other blood disease. The cruelty
of such treatment is illustrated in the
alarming number of deaths which re
sult from it. The disease is in the
blood, and hence can not be cut out.
Nine times out of ten the surgeon's
knife only hastens death.
hfd a most malignant Cancer, for
which the doctors said au operation was the
wuij nope, xnenper-
auon was a severe
one, as it was neces
sary to cut down to
the Jawbone and
scrape it. Before a
great while the Can
cer returned, and be
gan to grow rapidly.
We gave him many
remedies without re
lief, and finally,
upon the advice of a
friend, decided to
try s. s. 5. (Swift's
Bpecinc). and withs
the second bottle he
began to Improve. After twenty bottles had
been taken, the Cancer disappeared entirely,
and he was cured. The cure was a permanent
one. for he is now seventeen years old. and has
never had a sign of the dreadful disease to re
torn. J. N. Ml KPOCH.
