A MELANCHOLY MYSTERY.
Underwriter and Undertaken Wrest
ling With a Knotty Problem.
Omaha Bee, Feb. 14.
A very curious question has just
arisen, and one which promises to be
extremely difficult to solve, viz.: the
whereabouts of the dead body of Royal
Riggins, who committed suicide on the
west bound emigrant train on the 28th
day of November last.
A ROMANTIC STARTEK.
There was quite a -romance connected
with this affair, Avhich is briefly told as
"James Riggins, well -known in An
drew and Nodaway counties, Mo., be
came engaged to one of Andrew coun
ty's fair daughters, but for some reason,
best known to the maiden, broke off the
engagement James, in his disappoint
ment, concluded to bury himself in the
irreat west, far from home and friends.
jProcurinir an insurance upon his life, in
favor of Iris aged mother, he purchased
a. tickel for the Pacific coast and left
home to begin life anew. He was a
shrewd business man, and, to all ap
pearances, was in good shape finan
cially. TRAGIC CLOSE OF LIFE.
When the train, on which Riggins was
traveling reached Gannett station on the
U. P., the man stepped into the water
closet, placed a pistol to his forehead,
pulled the trigger and fired himself un
prepared and suddenly into the presence
of his maker. The remains were taken
to North Platte, where a coroner's jury,
October 29th, returned a verdict in ac
cordance with the facts. The jurors were
all well-known citizens of that locality,
and were as follows: W. S. Peniston,
foreman; J. M. McLucas, P. H. Mc
Evoy, W. H. Welty, F. N. Dick, W. B.
Ellis, G. W. Brooks, coroner.
A SAD FAREWELL.
In the memorandum book of the de
ceased was written in pencil the follow
ing farewell appeal:
"Friends, if I have any on this train,
will please send me home to be buried
at Fillmore, Andrew county, Mo. May
God forgive my sins, for I have sinned
very much more than I thought I ever
uoulil bear. May God help my poor
dear old mother to bear this terrible
grief, sustain her in her agony over the
loss of one so dear as F have been to
her. If any one had to.d me six months
ago that 1 would now be contemplating
suicide, or that I ever could have been
tempted to as I have done, I could not
have believed it. Oh, God, the weight
that oppresses me, I cannot stand it any
longer. I would have liked to have
died at home, and have died more like a
man, but it cannot be. Farewell, my
angel. Good-bye, my angel mother.
To the young men: Young men, if you
are ever tempted lo do wrong, remem
ber what it leads to. If an' of my mon
ey is rone it will be taken after I am
THE BODY CLAIMED.
The suicide occurred on Wednesday
and a telegram was sent to Fillmore,
which reached a brother-in-law of the
deceased, Dr. E. B. Ensor, just as he
was boarding the Wabash train with
his bride to begin their wedding tour.
He arrived in Omaha on Saturday, and
proceeded to North Platte on Sunday to
secure the young man's effects, including
over eight hundred dollars cash, having
meantime telegraphed the authorities to
forward the remains to this city, to his
address. The body was accordingly
sent to Omaha and reached here on
Sunday afternoon, where it was taken
in charge by undertaker Jacobs.
It had been placed in a plain pine
case at North Platte. The interior, of
the case was a second case of galvanized
iron, the top of which was soldered on
cry securely. This case is still at Mr.
Jacobs' establishment and is addressed
to "Dr. E B. Ensor, Omaha, Neb." In
pursuance with the doctor's orders, -he-body
was here transferred by Mr.
Jacobs and his assitants to a plain me
tallic (cast iron) case, Crane & Breed's
make, in which it was sealed tightly.
This was done in the presence of several
witnesses. J.ue remains were in very
bad condition indeed and difficult to
handle. The blood was still oozing
from aghastly hole in the centre of Ihe
THE LAST JOURXET.
On Monday afternoon the brother-in-law
returned from North Platte, and
that evening or the next morning pro
ceeded home with the body, which was
interredjwith imposing ceremonies, as
was supposed, without removing the
lid, owing ""to the condition of the re
mains. It appears that the refusal to
exhibit the contents of the coffin arous
ed some suspicion, and when the appli
cation for the insurance money was
made, the company began an investi
gation which resulted, last week, in ex
ruimiiig "the body from the grave at
the Fiumore cemetery, when the start
ling discovery is said to have been made
that the coffin contained
collected from Nebraska's fertile soil."
(The slur will be noticed.)
Deputy Sheriff Stotts, of Andrew
county at once left for St, Louis to ar
rest the man supposed to be the chief
conspirator, and whom we judge to be
Dr. Ensor. Letters had previously been
written to North Platte and elsewhere
making inquiries in the case. The
Marysville, Mo., Democrat says:
"It is claimed that the remains of
James Riggins were actually placed in
the coffin, but if that is true the detect
ives claim they must have been stolen
therefrom while enroute to Fillmore.
The case is a curious one and shrouded
in mystery, and that the facts may all
come to light we withhold further com
ment." PROOF POSITIVE.
The NorthPlatte IBejwblicancom-
men ting on the case, says: "It is a
strange case. There are hundreds here
who saw the dead body. The record of
the coroner's jury in his case are here,
the body was sealed in a metallic case by
one of our most reputable citizens, ana
that case was as certainly delivered to
the certified agent of Riggins' friends.
There is no manner of doubt but that
the body of a man whose papers showed
him to be Royal Riggins, of Andrew,
Fillmore county, Missouri, was sealed
up in a zinc case and shipped from
forth Platte to his Missouri friends."
Our reporter to-day called at under
dertaker Jacobs1 establishment, where
the facts stated above concerning the
transfer of the remains were corrobora
ted. Messrs. M. H. Parrish, Elias Gish,
M. O. Maul and Charlie Withnell were
present at the time, and scout the idea
of there being fraud attempted against
the insurance company. They will
swear the matter down to a fine point if
necessary, and say that if the body was
taken from the coffin it was after it left
Omaha. They had a letter on Friday
ast from Dr. Ensor, dated at St. Louis,
WHAT THE DOCTOR SAYS.
The doctor says that the rumor is
that Riggins is not dead; that he, the
doctor, never went to North Platte;
that Mr. Jacobs "put no body in the
casket but put sand in it," and that the
doctor was trying to get the insurance
held on Riggins' life. He says Riggins
never had his life insured, so far as he
knows and that no one has made appli
cation for the insurance money. The
writer was on the eve of starting for
Fillmore, and requesting Mr. Jacobs to
send him a letter, stating that he had
put the body of Riggins in the metallic
case, and giving names of witnesses. In
reply a letter was sent, signed by all the
parties named above, Mr. Jacobs being
absent from the city.
So far as there being any mystery
about the death of the young man,
there is none. Our reporter saw the
body at the coroner's, and knows the
statement of Mr. Parrish, and others,
to be correct in every particular. If, as
stated, the exhumed coffin was found
to "contain sand," then the question is,
where and when was the sand substitut
ed for the remains? "for it was done on
the road somewhere between Omaha
and Fillmore via St. Joe." If the young
man was insured it might bo possible
that the agents of the insurance company
made the transfer at St. Joe to avoid
the payment of the policy, or they may
have made it after interment. Send
Prof. Aughey some of that sand and we
venture to say that it will be found to
savor of the foot-prints of the pukes and
not of the honest Nebraskans.
A Chinese Doctor.
San Francisco Chronicle.
Chinese quacks do a profitable busi
ness with white patients as well as with
their Mongolian countrymen. In health
the average citizen sneers at the meth
ods of the Chinese empire, but tortured
bj' incurable diseases he flees to the
Mongolian quack for the comforts de
nied by the competent white practition
ers. The Mongolian quack humors him
to his full bent with promises of restored
health, and the poor victim cheerfully
bestows his last dollar on the impostor.
A prominent physician has on exhibition
a quantify of Chinese medicines which
were left unclaimed at the custom house.
The collection comprised roots, dark,
dried lizards and toads, snake skins,
and unclassified herbs and a lot of pills
as big as baseballs.
The pills, which were the most re
markable things in the collection, were,
literally speaking, gilt-edged and com
monplace. They were marked in the
inventory which accompanied the chest
as "good for general debility."
Among the medicines highly recom
mended was a "wasp's nest for pain in
the back." For vertigo the Celestial
authority' recommended deer's horns;
for rheumatism a quart of boiled water
made palatable by a toad's skin and the
teeth of a snake; for every kind of dis
eases, medicines equally ridiculous
and significant of a hopeless condition
of ignorance. These quacks are simply
shrewd adventurers. One of the most
successful of these imposters was a fish
erman whom white speculators set up
in business. The principal cause of the
backwardness of the Chinese in medical
science is their religion. They are
Spiritualists and Fatalists. They
have neither a very deep fear of death,
nor do they believe that they die in any
way but as ordained by fate. Lately
medical missions, with American and
English professors,have beeu established
in China, and some steps have been
made from the barbarous position occu
pied by the healer's art.
The American Girl Abroad.
Here is a pen and ink sketch of
American girl, which is interesting as
showing how a Yankee girl appears to
French eyes: "Stylish to the backbone.
Independent as independent can be, but
very pure. Is devoted to pleasure,
dress, spending money; shows her mor
al nature nude, just as it is, so as to de
ceive nobody. Flirts all winter with
this or that one and dismisses him in
the spring, when she instantly catches
another. Goes out alone. Travels
alone When the fancy strikes her she
travels with a gentleman friend, or
walks anywhere with him; puts bound
less confidence in him; conjugal intima
cy seems to exist between them. She
lets him tell what he feels talks of love
from morning till night but she never
gives him permission to kiss
to kiss even so
much as her hand. He
may say any
thinghe shall do nothing. She is rest
less; she gives her heart and soul to
amusement before she marries. After
marriage she is a mother annualh ; is
alone all day; hears all night nothing ex
cept discussions about patent machinery,
unexplosive petroleum and chemical
manures. She then will let her daugh
ters enjoy the liberties she used without
grave abuse. As nothing serious hap
pened to her, why should Fanny, Mary,
Jenny, be less strong and less adroit
than their mother? She originates
French fashions. Parisian women de
test her. Provincial women despise
her. Men of all countries adore her, but
will not marry her unless she has an
immense fortune. Her hair is Vermil
lion, paler than golden hair; her black
eyes are bold and frank; she has a pat
ent shape which 'tis forbidden to coun
terfeit; spreads herself in a carriage as
if she were in a hammock the natural
and thoughtless posture of her passion
for luxurious ease. When she walks
she moves briskly, and throws every
glance right and left. Gives many of
her thoughts to herself, and few of them
to anybody else. She is a wild plant
put in a hot-house.
An Indiana newspaper, thus writes:
Mr. Geo. F. Helderle, of Peru, Ind.,
says that he had suffered very much
with rheumatism and used many reme
dies without benefit. He found the de
sired relief in St. Jacobs Oil.
"Landlady," said he, "the coffee isn't
settled." "No," she replied, "but it
comes as near to it as your last month's
board bill does;" and that man never
spoke again during the meal.
Pottstown Dally Ledger.
A Michigan journal relates the follow
ing: Amos James, Esq., proprietor of
the Huron House, Port Huron, Mich.,
suffered so badly with Rheumatism that
he was unable to raise his arm for three
months. Five bottles of St. Jacobs Oil
cured him entirely.
Geo. P. Lathrop In Harper"! Magazine for March.
It has" not grown as other American
cities grow; its progress has been tardy.
This yeanling of towns, so carefully
fostered on the banks of the Potomac,
has not availed itself to any great ex
tent of that popular method of im
provement so successfully adopted by
Chicago and Boston the method of
burning; and its increase has been
more a reflection of the extending mag
nitude of other centres than a sponta
neous movement. More and more the
custom has grown among the rich or
energetic ana inquiring inhabitants of
other places, of going to the capital to
see what it is like; many of them have
been so fascinated that they have staid;
and now Washington may fairly be call
ed the winter end of New York, as
Newport is the summer end of the me
tropolis. Add to the exotic population
the enlarged ranks of public officials
and clerks, the growing circle of scien
tific and literary people, who from
choice or government connection have
been led to make their homes there, to
gether with the needful contingent of
small traders who supply the daily
wants of these elements, and you have
a general classification of the "hundred
and sixty thousand heads counted by
the new census. A city without a com
merce and without suburbs drive a
mile or two in any direction and you
find yourself in the midst of woods set
but sparsely with houses or cabins, and
with only the great pillared dome, like
a shining cloud in the air. to remind
you of the human mass so near Wash
ington nevertheless wears distinctly the
appearance of a capital which has risen
to the emergency.
It has this special charm to commend
it above other places, that while Boston
and San Francisco and Cincinnati and
New York, despite their numerous
points of other than commercial interest,
are work-a-day towns, the "maiden cap
ital" shows a gayer disposition, and de
votes itself largely to social pleasures.
To the outsider the difference is that be
tween friendship and flirtation. You
like, you may love, the particular big
local capital where you live and do busi
ness, but you approach Washington
with a sense of its being something piq
uant and novel, with which you may
trifle and entangle yourself in a make
believe attachment having all the stimu
lus and none of the drawbacks of steady
devotion. Besides it is a city provided
with "sights." There are congress and
the capital; there are Mount Vernon
and Kalorama, where dwelt the author
of the "Columbiad," in profund convic
tion of his errand as the American epic
poet; and Cabin-John Bridge, the long
est single arch in the world; Arlington,
with its earlier historic and later war
memories; Georgetown with its observa
tory, its college, and its convent; besides
all these, the Corcoran art gallery, the
Smithsonian institution, the curiosities
of the patent office, the treasury with its
hundreds of rooms and thousands of em
ployes, where you peer into thebusy
brain-cells of the government while they
are in full activity.
You arrive by an early morning
train, and are greeted by a gong beat
ing for breakfast at the station, which
makes you feel like an impossible Chi
nese embassy. But, armed with a
pocket copy of the constitution, you re
assert your birthright, and after going
to the hotel, where you wait some
hours for a room, you "step forth into
the broad airy streets. They have a
continental width and extent, making it
impossible to crowd them except on
rare occasions, and in the more retired
ones children glide peacefully along the
asphalt on roller-skates. Walking
these thoroughtares, you know that the
trail of the boss is over them all, but it
is a picturesque trail, excellent in its
results, .whatever it may have been
morally. Many of the houses" in the
new northwest end are well set off by
trees and lawns; some stand on terraces
decked with vines and shrubbery; and
the avenues are lined with more than a
hundred thousand trees judiciously
planted elm and tulip, buttonwood
and cottonwood, the ash, the negundo,
the maple. The quality of the nouses
is still unequal. Here and there you
see a relic of the village era some lit
tle whitewashed hut sticking pertina
ciously to the side of a fine modern
brick structure of comfortable and
tasteful style, like a wasps' nest attach
ed to a real human habitation, and it is
amusing to come upon a building in
what is known, according t. the bar
barous nomenclature of the place, as E
street which bears on one side the le
gend, "Law College of the University
Georgetown," and on the other, "Capi
tol Laundry." Such a conjecture is
only to be explained by the tendency of
fieople nowadays to wash their dirty
inen in court. Black men and women
are numerous, and laugh very loud on
the streets with refreshing freedom.
There is everywhere about the city a
slight but racy touch of southern char
acteristics, interfused with the vigor of
other portions of the union; and for the
sake of this you are willing to forgive
the copious tobacco stains those blots
on the national escutcheon which dis
figure the sidewalks, and around which
you see an English tourist and his wife
making their way with a pardonably
Turnips as Food.
To cook a turnip is so simple a mat
ter that there should be very little said
about it. Generally speaking, however,
this wholesome vegetable is presented
in a washed-out state, so that it is quite
seldom we discover its real flavor.
Many will, perhaps, say that the real
flavor of the turnip is too strong, and
this may be an argument in favor of
the reduction of its flavor in the process
of cooking. Those who can not endure
the full flavor of this root will have no
trouble in subduing it. But it should be
known that the saccharine and gummy
constituents that are removed and
therefore lost in the customary modes
of cooking, are the most nutritious por
tions, and communicate to the dish
when it is cooked on what we may call
conservative principles, a far finer
flavor than the majority of people have
any idea of. That we may be under
stood, we will ask the reader to cook
two turnips in two different ways. The
first is to be peeled and sliced, and left
to soak in cold water for an hour or
more. The slices are to bo boiled until
quite tender, and then are to be drained
and nicely mashed with butter. This is
the most common method of cooking,
and it has the demerit of washing out
the gum and sugar an I other fine con
stituents of the root, and consequently
the flavor is very much reduced. The
other root is to be washed quite clean,
but is not to be peeled or cut or soaked.
Boil it while in its "jacket." It will
take twice as long to cook as the one
that was cut. When, by trying it with
a fork, you find it quite tender, take it
up, peel it, press it moderately, and
mash it with butter. You will be sur
prised at the difference. Instead of be
ing, as perhaps you will expect,
"strong," "rank," or "bitter," it will
be delicious, full-flavored, and will con
tain all the nourishment that was in it
before it was cooked.
Riches may "take wings," says the
proverb. But men in all conditions of

John Quincy Adams' Diary.
If fifty persons should be asked to
name the most prosaic and uninterest
ing character in American history, forty-nine
would probably select John
Quincy Adams. Webster, Clay, Cal
houn, Gen. Jackson, his contempora
ries, one and all, were picturesques,
were leaders of men, had ardent fol
lowers, and veheme-t opponents. Ene
mies, indeed, Adams had in abundance,
and savage ones, but friends and follow
ers he had none. Many generations,
however, passed away before there
came people who could see that the cav
alier had not usurped all the pictur
esqueness of his age, but that the grim
and austere Puritans, our forefathers,
also had their share of this quality. A
like justice will be done to Mr. Adams.
He will never become attractive, but
posterity will not hate him as so many
of his own generation did; while his
rigid, uncompromising adherance to
duty, his courage, independence and
constancy, his pure patriotism, his rare
political integrity, his industry and
acquirements, his clear common sense
and keen logic, will in time be general
ly appreciated, as they were on rare oc
casions only during his lifetime. It is a
goodly list of qualities for a statesman,
and every one of them was highly de
veloped in Mr. Adams. If he had added
one grain of warm human sympathy,
now amerent mignt nave been his ca
reer in life; his memory in death! But
of this he had net a particle; it was his
melancholy fate to go through life al
ways doing right in a way so repellant
as to drive all wavers to the side of
wrong, and making political virtue so
unenticing that his fellov? politicians
were too frequently nothingoUuto al

In his famous diary, almost commen
surate with his life-time, and filling
twelve larae octavos in print, he is
thoroughly exposed in his virtues and
his defects, his greatness and his little
Mr. Adams was the
typical outcome of Puritanism in its
New England development. Apparent
ly he never sowed so much as a single
wild oat in all his exemplary youth,
although he visited all those European
capitals in which vast and alluring gar
dens were devoted to the exclusive pro
duction of these naughty cereals. But
in boj'hood, youth and manhood his em
inently respectable traits remained still
the same an honest reverence for the
right, a persistent effort to do it, result
ing in a respectable measure of success
and at least proportionate conscious
ness of that success; a great regard for
intellectual cultivation and the acquisi
tion of knowledge; a strong and ever
present religious belief; and a decided
distaste for the amenities and decora
tions of life.
He was thoroughly devout, and his
diary is thickly bestrewn with expessions
of religious feeling. In no occurrence of
lile aid he fail to utter the appropriate
sentiment, whether in the way of praise,
thankfulness, humility or prayer. Nor
does he appear ever, to have doubted
that he at least felt all the sensations
which religion made becoming. Not
that he was Pharisaical, for he was not
he was profoundly and sincerely reli-
fious; but the very appreciation which
e put upon his honest religious senti
ments inevitably led to a sense of sat
isfaction with himself for having felt
them. Indeed, he would not have been
himself had he not been satisfied with
himself; for he never was without a
present sense of the purities of his mo
tives and nobleness of his aims. Such
were really the facts; history will say
so, but cannot

ed. He had no charity for the short
comings of others, which he contempla
ted, even through magnifying glasses,
rather with satisfaction than pain. At
the en 1 of the twelfth volume, one is as
tonished to have traversed so long a
period of American history, encounter
ing so many honored names, and to re
flect how scant a measure of praise,
how meagre a credit for disinterested
motives, have been distributed in so
long a journej'. A certain vague and
indefinite, but very perceptible, atmos
phere of depreciation pervades the whole
diary. Hero worship was as alien to
Mr. Adams' nature as fetich worship.
No flame of sympathy ever unduly
warmed his cold judgment; no generous
admiration ever led him a step after an
erring leader. Only when his own mo
tives were traduced or his own actions
were attacked, did he show the latent
heat within him; then, indeed, he blazed
forth fiercely and consumingly. Hevas
not a great orator, but he had a terrible
power of sarcasm, a keen, unerring log
ic. He feared no man, no body of men;
he was of a truly wonderful courage,
moral, mental and physical; he could
stand absolutely alone in the face of
vast odds with a tranquil a fearlessness
as could have been felt by the most dis
tant and obscure camp-followers in the
opposing forces. All he wished was to
feel assured what was right; and from
the moment when he had determined
this, neither fear nor favor nor thought
for his own interests could move him
one hair's breadth.
A Victim of Tyranny.
It was at a table d'hote
where Englishmen, Scotchmen, and
Americans from the northern states
were present, that a gentleman from
the south repeatedly set forth the
tyranny which the southern states were
suffering, and especially denounced the
administration of Gen. Grant.
At last a bluff old Scotchman, grown
weary of his vaporings, thus addressed
"You are from the southern states of

"And ye were an officer in the south

"And ye got licked?"
"Was anybody shot?"
"Weel, then, what the de'il are ye

England we would have hanged a thou
sand of ye before ye could have appealed
to the civil law, and we would have
transported other thousands of ye to
Australia, where ye owt to be now pick
ing up stones."
There was a moment's silence and
then the whole company broke into a
roar of laughter and applause. The
colonel was squelched and nothing
furthei was heard from him.
How Plants Eat, Move and Sleep.
In a work entitled "Movements of
Plants," Mr. Charles Darwin gives the
results of his latest investigations into
the question of botanic life. These re
searches are of a nature which cannot
fail to excite general interest, while they
will be "like an eagle in a dove-cot" to
those who cling to the venerable belief
in a distinct line of demarcation between
the animal and vegetable kingdoms.
Speaking from careful experiment, the
author tells us how plants exhibit many
of the characteristic of animal nature.
They slei p, they move, they are very
sensitive, they have appetites, they are
carnivorous, and they have radicles
which by their sensibility and their ef
fect upon other parts of the plant act a
part similar to that of brain in lower
animals. We are told that a leaf of j
carnivorous plant which has been mo-
tionless for hours will instantly curve on
being touched in a most delicate man
ner with a piece of raw beef. In observ-'
ing the sleeping habits of certain plants,
Mr. Darwin, by an ingenious contriv
ance, held down the leaves which other
wise would have returned to a vertical
or sleeping position at night. The re
sult was that those leaves were frost
bitten in a temperature which had no
such effect on the leaves that were al
lowed freedom to sleep. Mr. Darwin
thence concludes that the sleeping of
the plant is to it a "question of life and
death," the vertical position of the
leaves at mght protecting it from inju
rious effects of radiation and cold. Not
less instructive and suggestive are the
researches into the effects of light upon
certain forms of vegetation, instances
are given of the wonderful sensitiveness
of some plants to light. The seedlings
of the Phaearis canartensis, for example,
are said to have a power of detecting
differences in light which are inappre
ciable by the human eye, while they
sympathetically turn to the minutest
point of light. Nor is the constant no
tion of plants confined to any special
state of germination, for we learn that
from year to year since the tree first be
gan to rise through the ground the tip
of each rootlet endeavors to sweep small
ellipses or circles, as far as the surround
ing earth permits. All this would seem
to show that when we speak of flowers
"peeping," "smiling" and "drinking
dew," we express something more than
a mere poetical metaphor.
The Emperor Nerva died of a violent
excess of anger against a senator who
had offended him. Valentinian, the
first Roman, emperor of that time, while
reproaching with great passion the dep
uties from the Quadi, a people of Ger
many, burst a blood vessel, and sudden
ly fell lifeless to the ground.
"I have seen," said Tourtello, a
French medical writer, "two women
perish, the one in convulsions, at the
end of six hours, and the other suffoca
ted in two days from giving themselves
up to the transports of fury." The cel
ebrated John Hunter fell a sudden vic
tim to a paroxism of this passion. Mr.
nunter, as is familiar to medical read
ers, was a man of extraordinary genius,
but the subject of violent anger, which,
from the defect of early moral culture,
he had not learned to control. Suffering
during his latter years under a com
plaint of the heart, his existence was in
constant jeopardy from his ungoverna
ble temper; and he had been, heard to
remark that "his life was in the hands
of any rascal who chose to annoy him."
Engaged one day in an unpleasant alter
cation with his colleagues in the board
room at St George's hospital, London,
he was peremptorily contradicted; he
immediately ceased speaking, hurried
into an adjoining apartment, and in
stantly fell dead.
When the fit of anger is of long con
tinuance, or frequent recurrence, it fre
quently lays the foundation of some
most serious and lasting afflictions;
thus many cases of palsy, of epilepsy, of
convulsions and of madness may be
traced to violent anger and ungovern
able temper. Dr. Good cites the case of
Charles VI., of France, "who being vio
lently incensed against the Duke of Bre-
tague, and burning with a spirit of mal
ice and revenge.could neither eat, drink
nor sleep for many days together, and
at length became furiously mad as he
was riding on horseback, drawing his
sword and striking promiscuously every
one who approached him. The disease
fixed upon his intellect, and accompa
nied him to his death."
The Beautiful Gates.
Speaking of the gates of Jerusalem,
a correspondent says: Tradition men
tions several that are now to be found
such as the Old gate, Ephraim's gate,
the Valley gate, the Fish gate, the
Prison gate, and others. At present
there are but four that can be opened,
although four others are distinctly seen
walled up. The gates now opened are
those of Jaffa, of Damascus, of St.
Stephen, and of David one in each of
the four walls. The Jaffa gate is north
west of Mount Zion, and is the usual
entrance for pilgrims from Christian
lands. It is composed of tall towers or
buttresses, evidently of great strength,
and easily defended against ancient
modes of warfare The gates proper
consist of two large folding doors, in
one of which is a wicket called "The
Needle's Eye," which is just large
enough to admit a camel without any
load on its back, whence comes, I sup
pose, the scriptural adage abo.ut the
difficulty of a camel going through the
eye of a needle. I asked what signifi
cance the natives attached to this, and
was gravely told that, inasmuch as a
camel cannot possibly pass through it
while carrying any portion of a load,
similarly a rich man cannot pass
through the wicket of the heavenly Je
rusalem until he has entirely unloaded
himself of his riches and other earthly
The three other gates are of similar
construction, with strong turrets. But
they are all wonderfully striking to the
eye, in their quaint and now useless
ponderousness, albeit conveying a pro
found impression of the ancient strength
of the city, and of the difficulty of its
capture by Moslem or crusader. Now
adays, one or two of our big guns
would effect a breach in a few minutes.

Thc Efl'ectMoOIental Exhaustion.
Many diseases, especially those of the ner
vous system, are the products of daily renewed
mental exhaustion. Business avocations of
ten involve an amount of mental wear and
tear very prejudicial to physical health, and
the professions, if arduously pursued are no
less destructive to brain and nerve tissue. It
is one of the most importaut attributes of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters that it compen
sates for this undue loss of tissue, that it im
parts new energy to the brain and nerves.
The rapidity with which it renews weakened
mental energy and physical vitality is re
markable, and shows that its invigorating
properties are of the highest order. Besides
increasing vital stamina, and counteracting
the effects of mental exhaustion, this poten
tial medicine cares and prevents fever and
ague, rheumatim, chronic dyspepsia and
constipation, kidney and uterine weakness
and other complaints. Physicians also com
mend it as a medicated nmJn- -emedy.

Fees of Doctors.
The fee of doctors Is an Item that very many
persons are interested in just at present. We
believe the schedule fer visits is $3.00, which
would tax a man confined to his bed for a year

for medical attendance alone ! And one sin

Dear Sirs: Eight years ago my -wife had the Rheumatism, and for months she
could hardly put one foot before the other. For seven weeks she was confined to her
bed and could not move without assistance. It seemed death to her when she was
moved. I had the most skillful physicians in. this section attending her, without bene
fitting her in the least. My son, while visiting Lafayette, saw one of your advertising
wagons, and coming home induced us to try the Wizard Ofl. We did so, and, remark
able as this statement may seem, she got out of bed in a few hours after we commenced
using it, and by continuing its use was entirely cured in a few days. This was eight
years ago and she has not had a symptom of the disease since.
