New York, August 9. Much sur-
piise was ft It here l.-day over the an
nouncement that Dr. Aunw had left
tha White Ilouae, while Dr. Hamilton
came home last niglit without
any intention of immediately reiuru-
ing. Dr. Hamilton was surprised
when the statement was made and
said tha . the understanding-had been
that Dr. Agnew should remain until
Wednesday niglit or Thursday, and
that he, Dr. Hamilton, would return
on Thursday, r possibly nat until
Friday. He had received no dispatch
from Washington, and had had no
reason to change any of his plans. The
general public has never thoroughly
understood the location of the ball
from the technical accounts given by
the physicians, and this Dr. Hamil
ton was asked to explain, so that it
might be understood by every one. He

you are going to quote me you may
say this simply. The ball uitered the
bod through tha eleventh nb, break
ing it, and about four inches in front
of his spine. It was then turned
downward toward the hips, inside the
flesh which coinpcsfes the loins but
back of the liver, kidney and intes
tines, and probably now lies just with
in the bares constituting the pelvis
about five inches above the groin. The
doctor in his willingness to explain
the course of the ball an! it.s present
location placed hij finger at the point
a little above the right seam
of his vest buckle belt as an
entrance point. From that spot
the course of the ball was downward
and forward amongst the muscles of
the back and side. It now lies in the
right si)iface af the bodv abou' paral
lel wjth thi; loj; f,f the trousers pock

below the surface. "There" said the
surgeon, as he thni3t his fwiper in at

The Indian bureau, Aug. 8th, receiv
ed official information of the shooting
cf spotted Tail by Crow Dog, at Rose
bud Agency, i;;t;irday. The de
partment here believe that S'oltpii
Tail was killed through some difficul
ty growing out of his expected trip to
Washington. He had been ordered by
tiie Indjan bureau to come to Wash
ington wilii ,it Indian delegation to
be theie on the loin. ;., Wed t;ii! was
coming as a representative of tl.e
Sioux Indians, and Crow Dog was
jealous of his prominence and influ
ence. Crow Dog wanted to come to
Washington. Shotted Tail was to
have started for YuukUm i J:?aye for
Washington the very day he was kill
ed. Crow Dog was captain of the
Indian pliije at Rosebud.

A severe storm swept over the nor
thern part of Minnesota, August 4th,
which extended as far as Menominee,
Wis. The greatest damage was done
in Minnesota. For ; time it really ap
peared the city of St. Paul wa Jp be
swept away by a genuine cyclone. A
house in process of construction, own
tfd by Frank Lee, was wrecked. Light
ning struck tho bam of Andrew Paul
son, which Y.us totally destroyed. The
county surveyor, v. ho was in Brook
lyn township when the stotr,j struck
that point, states that the sound of
storm could be distinctly heard for
some time before its arrival. After its
passage it was found that the damage
was confined to hay an 1 grain stacks,
which were leveled .nd scattered all
over the country. Small grain in fields
and stacks was blown down and badly
damaged. It js impossible to learn the
damage done in ll;s !i;;e of the storm,
for the wires were wrecked in zyery
direction. Lincoln Journal.
Anna Dickinson was invited to
give an address at the meeting of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Un
ion iit Ocean Grove last week, and she
spoke right out in n;eetng. She said:
"You fail where vou Jo the
most. The woman who has nothing
to do, the giddy, fashionable creature
who learns to tipple with refinement;
the woman who has too much to do,
jour laundress who does a day's
woik cutting her husbundV breakfast
and attending Lg her shildren before
she comes in the morning tl;j.o as
well as the woman who drinks to

but do not receive your ministrations.

Vice Consul Warrack. in this city,
sajs that no instructions or papers in
regard to Crowe, the alleged manufac
turer of infernal machines at Peoiia,
have been forwarded to him lrom
Washington or elsewhere. The special
this morning from Peoria says that the
whole affair was a hoax. Crowe is
still in that citv. and it is considered
doubtful if he had any hand whatever
iu the manufacture of torpedoes. The
erroneous reports have Ueu traced
to a man named J. F. Hogab, an inti

Peoria, Aug. 32 p. m. There hs
been considerable misrepresentation
in regard to the standing character
and acts of Pat W. Crowe, the fenian
of this city. Crowe has been employed
as a lamplighter by the gas company
here for the past three or four years
He is a skallow-pated Irishman, who
inherits all the lingual characteristic
of LJs race without common sense.
Troubled with un itch fqr notoriety,
he will go to unwarrantable lengths
to bring bis name into prominence.
The secret of the infernal machine
was disclosed by Crowe himself, who
took advantage of the alleged discov
ery of some of the machiues in Eng
lish ports to air his own importance.
Since the publication of tha discov
ery of 'lie infernal machines in this
city Clowe has seized ou every oppor
tunity to advirtise himself and has
succeeded admirably. It Is true that
there are infernal machines now here
that weie made here. One of them
was taken to the Journal office, of
Uns city, in order to compare them
with the dtiiiii ipl i'ii 'if those dis
covered in Liverpool. A few hours
after it was removed there it was
sent for by the maker and was al
lowed to be taken away.
It is now said that Crowe, acting in
collusion .:th O'Donovan Rossa ai d
four others, obtained control of the
skirmishing fund, amounting to abou"
620,000. and that these castings were
made to lead the conlribuiois to be

In person he is insignificant looking
and the last man in the world to be

to start these untrue reports. This is

A Good Sign.
One good sign of the times is that
our colleges and high schools are
planting themselves squarely and pub
licly upon the side of temperance.
Temperance is no longer a tabooed
subject at collt-ge commencements.
This was demonstiated at the late
commencement of Knox College.
John V. Ewai ts, the valedictorian of
his class, iu his eiosing address to the
citizens of Galesburg, made a stirring
appeal to them for the sake of the
college to banish saloons from the
city. All thinking people voted this
a great improvement upon t lie mean
ingless platitudes frequently indulged
in upon such occasions. A similar
appeal, even more impassioned and
earnest, was made by Miss Emma
Everest in her address to the Alumni
upon the relations of Knox College to
the Community. The best essay of
tl e Ga'er.burg High School also gave
no uncertain sound for temperance.

The Fascination of Drink.
There is a deadly fascination about
(lrinkincr. "What is fascination y" ask
etl a littio girl of her science master,
lie replied, "Dr. Malachi Foot would
say 'fascination is the power to awaken
feelings of pleasure so great as to ab
sorb or swallow up all othei feelings,
and even fears, and that too at what
seems lo be i he most trilling cost.' This
feeling goes on little by little, enfold
ing the p-.-fsr-.M i;i a delightful but
numbing trance, till one is lost in for
getfulness, and often it ends in death.
Thus a snake captures it.s prey by 'fas
cination.' It fixes its flittering eyes
with hungry hope on a Ink singing in
mid-air. It then throws its body ij;
graceful curves and raises its tail, and
makes a constant waving motion, soft
and inviting. The bird se;-s ami is in
terested. Its ees OTice caught b comes
ensnared in the endless wavs of mo
tion. Litlle by little it loses control
of itself and oraws uiuv ihw ground
overcome bv simple delight. Then it
Mutters hel lessly into the serpent's
folds, where it is slung and devoured.
Precisely so it is with the fascination
of drink.. Do you know any words
that ran prove itV "Oh, yes," replied
theeiii. "Wine is a lyjocker, strong
iiriiik is raging; and whosoever is de
ceived thereby is not wise. Look not
thou upon the wine when it is red,
when it giveth its color in the cup,
when it moveth itself aright, at the
last it l iteth like a serpent and sting
ttl; like an ;jd:er,"' "Very u.id" said
the master. "How can we best avoid
the fascination of drink and its crav
ingV "I shall, anyhow, said Mary,
"absinin from drink all mv days, and
try and lead others to do the same."
Nobi' resolved, and God help .vou to
keep your resolution. Rev. William

Here is a fast as frequent as it is
sad; a few days ago, in New York a
man complained of his wife as a com
mon druukard. When they were mar
ried, and for years afterward, she was
provident, tender an 1 loving; but she
had lately given herself up to think,
ing. and had destroyed his business,
his home and his peace. She had sold
everything of her own and his, that
she could lay hold of, for whisky; and
while in drink 9l.e was a perfect fury,
abusing him and their chjltl us only
drunken inanac could. After hear
ing Lis ttstimony, the. magistrate
asked the woman if she would prom
ise to drink no more and go home and
be a peaceful wife and mother. ITer
answer was mad with Streaming eyes
t:No! f shall drink till I die! I cannot
help it." It was a sorrowful siaht
the husband holding the wife in his
arms, both of them weeping and sob
bing as if their heails would break
tirid yet with q hopes for ike future."
