your letter 1 will say that my experience with
Kendall's Spavin Cure has been very satisfac
tory indeed. Three or four years ajro I procur
ed a bottle of your asent, and with it cured a
horse of laineiiCK.s caused by a spavin. Last
KCHKoii my horse became very lame, and I turn
ed him out for a ft w weeks when he became
better ; but when I put It 1 111 on the road he gut
worse, when I discovered that a lin-bone was
itirming. I procured a bottle of Kendall's
Spavin Cure, and witli less than a bottle cured
hi in so that he is not-lame, neither can the
bunch be found.-

Tne Pigeons of Venice.
' Everbmly has heard of tho pigeons
which nock daily to the famous Square
of St. Mark's, in Venice, to be fed, and
many Americans have seen them rest
ing upon the shoulders aud arms of
the woman who dispenses their daily
bread to them. Many are the stories
told of their origin ; how their ances
tors served the republic by bringing
back news from its fleets, and so on;
but none of them are very well estab
lished, except that the birds have al
ways been regarded as town property,
"and have been fed out of a fund set
apart for that purpose, which is now
said to have been a donation from the
Countess Policrasto. Until lately it
would have been thought little less
than sacrilege to touch a feather of
them, but recently a Venetian boy
was discovered carrying off a pigeon,
evidently with a view to pie. The
case was carried into court, where it
was decided that the pigeons had never
been legally conveyed to the town,
consequently they were nobody's prop
erty, but, so to speak, wild fowl, aud
that boy was only following his
natural instincts in catching them, and
must be acquitted.
The Mound Builders.
Dr. Gustavo Bruehel of Cincinnati
has contributed to a German paper in
that city an article on the excavations
of tho Indian graves near Madisonville.
He says of the discovery of twenty
two skeletons in the graveyard :
"As all of the skeletons were those
of males, many of them pierced by
spear head3 - that still cling to the
bones, and as several of ihe skulls show
deep impressions, seemingly caused by
dull instruments, perhaps war clubs,
it may be concluded, almost with cer
tainty, that these skeletons arc the re
mains, of fallen . warriors, who were
buried here after a bloody skirmish.
After this important discovery the re
sults of the excavations becamo more
and more favorable, and there were dis
covered separate graves, and around ash
heaps about 200 skulls, several hatchets
and axes of granite limestone, flint
spear heads, hammers, stone balls,
Eolishing stones, scrapers, knives, pipe
owls, a piece of hematite pierced in
the centre,- harpoons of deer horn, fish
hooks, needles, awls, and a flute of
bono with three holes, ornaments of
mussel-shells and of caunel coal, ono
of them in the shape of a butterfly
wing, many well preserved vessels, in
numerable potsherds, valuable relics
which the society has - distributed
among the members.
The pot-like vessels bulging in the
centre, with rim bent outward, and
often decorated, are of various sizes,
and are made of a mixture of clay and
pulverized mussel-shells. They, were
made without the help of the potter's
wheel and are not glazed. . Most of
them have two or four handles, but
one has eight, in two rows, one above
the other. The simple decoration con
sists of sunken straight, oblique, or
zig-zag lines, semi-circles, and grouped
graven points. It is noteworthy that
each vessel contains several pierced
mussel-shells, and that they are only
found with those skeletons whose heads
lie toward the cast, while they. aro
lacking with all tho rest; that the
children's skeletons always have them,
and that in these cases they are found
with mussel-shell ornaments.
"Very interesting are the pathologi
cal specimens found among the re
mains, for several show unmistakable
signs of bone-syphilis. On tho knoll
belonging to the graveyard there aro
oaks nine and one-half feet in circum
ference, and beeches eight and one
half feet, pointing indirectly to the
great age of the graves; but these do
not shut out tho possibilities that the
buried remains were not given to tho
earth until after the arrival of Euro
peans. "Oue fact deserves special mention,
namely, that neither iu this graveyard
nor iu any of the earthworks of this
group h.ive any copper tools been
found, the only pieces of that metal
being two small cylindrical pierced
pieces, perhaps the remnant of a string
of beads. Every additional explora
tion shows more and more the untcn
ableuess of the heretofore favorite, tiy-
o thesis that the Mound-builders aud
nd ians belonged to diflereut races.
Neither the form of the skull nor the
form of the vessels show any material
difference, except, perhaps, that tho
Mound builders vessels are more per
fect, because these belonged to a set
tled tribe aud were more civilized than
their wandering brethei'ii."

The Grant men. finding themselves in
the minority, mads the long night fight
to divide the delegation and the fight
under the leadership of James Laird,
of Hustings, was a gallant one. Laird
is a young man, but an orator of great
power, and roused at one time in the
early hours of the uioruing to an im
passioned appeal for the cause of the
minority, lie electrified the conven
tion by a burst of eloquence unlik-,
anything ever heard on Nebraska soil,
and which would have been worthy ol
Ingersoll himself. It made him the'he
ro of the delighted Nebruskans who
heard it, and its effect was such thai
on the motion he made to proceed by
a secret ballot to elect delegates to
Chicago from the judicial districts
(which have given Grant three of the
six delegates), a sufficient number of
the opposion voted with him to wipe
out the opposition majority. Th's was
carried in the shape of an amendment;
but when the counties were called, on
the motion as amended, enough Blaine
men recovered their tquilibi ium to de
feat the measure by three votes.
It is asserted by his friends that ex
Congressman Lorenzo Crounse, now
collector of internal revenue, and one
of the delegates, is for Sherman, and,
as the delegation is not instructed, he
will so vote in the Chicago conven
tion. Pat. O. Hawes, a Sherman man
from Omaha, claims that four of the
delegation are Sherman men.
Washington, May 20. Private tel
egrams Iroin Nebraska indicate that
Secrtary Sherman will have three of
the six delegates from that State,
which is a surprise to everybody; that
Blaine will have two, and Grant one.
The delegates w ere not instructed, and
will vote according to their own indi
vidual preferences. TLis is another se
rious backset for the Blaine people,
although the Senator thinks the entire
delegation will vote for him. The
Blaine men have been confident of se
curing Nebraska, and it has been con
ceded to him by the Grant men. No
one expected Sherman would get a
vote in that State. .

Some of those who were honored
by invitation to meet the Prince of
Wales at Hughenden have not scru
pled to affirm that their host is failing
as much mentally as ho is' known to bo
physically. Lord BeiconstIeld is said
to be far from the man he was a year
ago, and life at his country seat is de
scribed as ''portentously slow and.,
pompously dull." Tho witty word
and sparkling repartee were conspicu
ous by their absence. Lord Beacons
field, it is said, spoke but seldom, and
when he did veutuie a remark it par
took more of the nature of a thinly
disguised platitude than, of tho so bril
liant epigrams which used to .drop
spontaneously from his lips whenever
he ojicned-his mouth.
Taken all round tho Hughenden visit
was rather a failure. II. It. II. is fond
of high play, and Lord Beacon sfleU'a
face is said to havo grown ludicrously
long when his royal guest proposed
sovereign points at whist. Ajuudncss
for cards prevails . among the royal
family. I am told, but they do not all
loso their money so gracefully as docs
the heir-apparent. The Duke of Ed
inburgh's meanness has' passed into a
proverb, and ' has done far more to
make him unpopular thau tho fact of
his marrying a Russian wife. He gets
savage at losing.
I heard" a good," well-au the n tica t cd
story apropos of this weak side of tho
duke's character a year or two ago.
His royal highness had accompanied
some ladies to' the theater or opera.
If I remember rightly it was the Cri
terion. ; After the performance tho
party adjourned to supper. Tho wait
ers of course recognized II. R. II., and
expected a handsome gratqity. After
tho refreshments had been partaken of
tho duke called for his bill. The half
dozen lackeys flow round moro expect
ant than ever. Tho wished for docu
ment was' produced, handed . to tho
duke on a silver salver in tho orthodox
fashion and found to amount to 9 17s.

10 "flimsy," saying at the Samo timo
with the royal airot aman who is giv
ing away a small fortuno, " Walttahs,

sovereign apiece, had to content them
selves with tho munificent sum of
about fifty cents among six of them.
Protecting Cheese from Mould.
It is often difflculf to protect cheese
from mould, especially those that Inve
cracked. The Weiuer Zeitung gives
Dr. Engilug'8 plan. He dissolves or
digests a spoonful of bruise pepper,
two teaspoonfuls of salt, and tha same
quantity of. borne ic acid, in a quarter
of a pint of brandy for a few days,
then filters the fluid through a cloth
and dilutes with an equal quantity of
water. Some of the preparation is in
troduced into the cracks of- tho cheese,
by means of a feather, or, better, with
a small glass syringe. If places which
have been nibbled bymico aro rubbed
with this liquid, no mould will form.
This will put "jumpers" to flight, and
greatly assist in preventing auy decay.
