Cozzens himself, is a typical ranche

arrow, with an eye that tells of nerve,
one can see at once why and where

(as there was all over Colorado) but
not cold and he thinks the climate

The butter and cream are excellen.
in all these ranches. The cool weath

then, something about the grasses
seems to flavor it with a richness of
its own. When I got down to Den
ver again I remarked. "Hello! yot
down to the land of soft butter
again". Cozzens had men in the iutw,
in the shed, on the floors, that night,
and is full all the season.
The piua woo l muktu such nice lit

with what it can use. to most advan

round. The hills are low near the val
ley, but "James Peak" can be seen in
the distar.ee, 14.C00 fet upwards.
In looking at a map I laughed at the
idea of calling these peaks and chasms
counties, and asked how they ever sur
veyed them. The process by which
lines are run over mountains and
across canons was explained, and I be
gan to think mabe they did know one
county from another, after ail.
Game still abounds in the Park, and
Cozzens said a good hunter could bring
in a deer in an hour's hunt, pel haps.
Severe game law.s protect what game
ia left, or else the awarm of t(;;u Nts
now rushing in would soon clean out
a much richer country.
Fletcher and Cozzens are looking at

Xew York, Aug. 5. A Washing

more is learned in detail of the terri

that the surgeons, after t lie alarming
symptoms of the morning, decided
that it was useless longer to continue

Wasaington, Aug. SO, C a. m. In
formation from the sick room is to
the effect that the president passed a
cood niirht. enjoyine much of tlu
time in a sound, natural slumber, and,
it is thought, starts out "on wht bids
fair to be another good day. The
stomach siill continues to perform its
work satisfactorily, and the parotid
swelling is progressing favoiabiy
Pulse temperature and respiration
as compared with yesterday morning
are about the same. The slight in
crease in the frequency of pulse is
thought to be due to accumulation of
pus in another portion of th glandu
lar swelling, which was obseived this
morning by Dr. Riiss who uuda in
other incision and released the pent
up pus. On continuance of these fav
orable symptoms another day of pro
gress is predicted.
There was no notieeable change in
the presidents condition during the
afternoon, except that his pulse hs
fallen to ICS. I i is symptoms general
ly csntinue about the 0ame as yester
day. RESUME OF THE DAY.
The day at the mansion has been
extremely quiet, news from the sick
room being very gratifying. Shortly
after the noon bulletin there was a
ripple of excitement, owing to the
rise of the patient's pulse to 1JG. The
surgeons attributed the rise to the in
cision of the parotid made this morn
ing. They say that during the ex
tremely feeble condition of the pa
tient no importance can he attached to
slight fluctuations of the pulse. In ad
dition to koiimis.-., milk, porridjje and
beef tea, whivh betook freely, lie ate
milk to it w ith a relish. The beef
tea is prepared by Mrs. Garfield, from
raw bi'e-f chopped fi:i". to which water
is added and a few drops of muriatic
acid. The patient is said to relish it
fjoyntan said the glandular trouble
is apparently much better. There is a
large discharge this morniug. There
is little change in the condition of tha
wound. Granulation has renewed,
but not to a great extent. The gener
al condition is fully as good as yester
day. MOVF1IEXTS OF Til F 15 U L LET.

Dr. Benjamin Ward Richardson in;
speaking recently on the action of al
cohol in disease, and stimulants in
cai,e of accidents, tay-s:
i am qune piepaied to add that 1
could do without, alcohol altogether,
i do not think it is absolutely neces
sary toi me physician though it may
ue some times usetul. 1 couid replace
it oy nitrale of auiyl or oilier agents
of a similar class, vin.-n we ever want
a stimuli!. t. I very olien replace it
by nitrate ot amyl. if we want to al
iy spasms, alcohol is an anti-spasmodic,
but nitrate of amyl per tunas
the same part, and although it would
be ftiore dangerous to give, it has the
advantage ot being very temporary iu
its action, whereas the action of alco
hol is more prolonged. I would not
recommend any person to use the nit
rate of amy 1 without medical supervis
ion. It is exceedingly dangerous to
life. I see in the lepoit wincn has
just been issued by , .he 1'emperanco
Hospital that lor twelve months the
physicians have never applied alcvhol
in any case: their results seem to be
of an exceedingly satisfactory charac
ter, and 1 think may bs considered as
satisfactory as those of any other in
stitution of London. We kavr, how
ever, a great deal to learn iu this re
spect, because we have been brought
up and educated as physicians, in the
belief that the alcohol is necessary,
and theierore we have used it, seeing
results whicii we thought were natu
ral, a;;d whicii would not have oc
curied without it, leading to health.
Sir Henry Thompson referred in his
examination to the fact that there
were certain limes w hen just at a mo
ment's notice this stimulant might be
of -service. 1 am an instance myself
ot the fact, from an aceiuent which
occurred to me on .Monday last, that
we may be ery much deceived on
tliat maUei. 1 was diartU by a big
dog under a cab and received a wound
from three to tour inches long, in
my scalp down to the skull and lost a
great number of ounces of biood. Dr.
Sy mes Thompson came to my assist
ance, and took me frmu Cu in bet land
Place ill a cab homy to lhnde street,
I, in the meanwhile, holding the
vound Uiuily with a handkerchief
to prvent lurther bleeding. 1 was
very greatly exhausted from the loss
of blood and tho shock and the pain
which afterward followed in stitch
ing up the wound, but I never took a
drop of alcohol in any chape or way
and in two hours 1 was quite ready to
resume work. I had no fever. I have
had no inflammation. I have slept well,
and have continued my work up to
this time with the only difference
that I hav not been out at night to a
dinner party or a meeting. Ten years
ago J should have thought it would
have been necessary to have taken
three cr four ounces of alcohol, and
am sure I should have taken it. The
result would probably have been an
increased action of the heart from
12,900 to 1G.000 beats in the twelve
hours, and therefore a certain amount
of inllamation es the wound, the ne
cessity the next morning of taking a
black draught and a pill, and after
ward perhaps some saline and two cr
three days' rest. Less than ten years
ago I should have thought that a nec
essary part of the treatment. That
would still be the treatment with a
good many physicians. So also with
regard to extreme loss of blood, we are
learning a good deal. A gentleman
under the care of a professional friend
of mine had disease of the hard pal
ate; the bona suddenly gave way, al
lowing a free escape of bieod, amoiuii
ing to, at least, seven pints from two
arteries. I was sent for and Sir James
Paget was sent for. 1 arrived first,
and with Mr. Millson, succeeded in
securing the bleeding before Sir James
Paget arrived 5 tha gentlem;:.': appeared
to be as though h? was nearly dead;
iu fact, so near was he to death that
a dignits ;y of the Roman Catholic
Church was waiting to perform ex
treme unction. Sir James Paget,
quite independently, took tiie same
view as 1 did. He said : "in this case,
I should quite agree with you not ta
stimulate with alcohol." If we iiad
whipped the heart on, when there was
so much depression, a recurrence of
the bl-edmg would have been almost
jiiutain, Lcc-.usr) he arteries would.
have been relaxetl; so we fed tho pa
tient on milk and other nutritious
things, and in thue weeks ho rtcov
eicd. A;, extreme stimulus would
have been followed by proportionate
depression and probably by relaxation
of the visse'.s and bleeding again. Rut
these are quite new points in respect
io ah oiiu! , a;id I think they poiut !
this, that we have nearly all to learn
as to 'he true treatment of diseases
with alcohol. As to the opinion that
fuse! oil disappears after a time, 1
doubt very much the disappearance of
fuse, oii from any spirit after it is
once there; it is a heavier body and
mom tenacious and holds its place; it
aicohols. A spirit like whisky loses
strength ith ;ige, if the spirit can es
cape from the salutiou; pure spirit
never changes, but if is mixed with
water and eacapes the mixture Rises
strength. There may be some chem
ical changes going on in freshly made
spirit with which 1 am not convers
ant. As to the statement ascribed to
Sii Henry Thompson, ' that if a man
were out walking upon the Alps and
became exhausted, and had :;athir.r
b;it aieohoi with him, by taking that
he would be enabled to get home; in
fact, that that would be the only
thing which would enable him to get
safe home; I would say that a basin

be in a condition in which lie would
be unable to taka food; of course food
would be better in a fluid form. 1
quU e admit that there should be some
thjnr in the wav of food in a fluid
form w hich can "be used as readily as
wine can; I admit that is a desidera
tum. 1 1 all the alcoholic liquor in the
world coald be tapped, and let flow
and disappear, I think the world
would Le muck the better. I think
we should be much stronger, healthier
nnd better. The spirits would be
more regular. Life would be length

A Woman's Experience.
Mothers and daughters should feel
alarmed when the feeling of weariness
and languor too constantly .opresses
them. "If I am cross and fretful from
the exhaustion of vital powers and
the color is fading from my face, 1 al
ways find immediate relief in that ex
cellent remedy, Patker'g (singer Tonic,
which seems to build up my system
and drive away pain and melancholy
with wonderful certainty. Several of
my friends have experienced the same
benefit from its use." A Buffalo lady.
The Reason Why.
"Come, Ernest, and let us have a
glass of something to cheer us up.
You are as dull as can be, and I am
inclined toward the indigo hue my
self," and the speaker attempted to
draw his companion into a saloon that
they were at that moment passing.
"Xo, 'Gene. I cannot," replied Ern
"And why not, I should like to
know demanded Eugene, "why is it
that ou never drink with any of the
"I v.ili t. li you w hy if you care to
listen to a sad story."
"Of course, I care to listen, if it con
cerns you, old fellow," replied Eu
gene. "One year ago," began Ernest, "I
was a ir e and easy, iiappy-goducLy'
soi t of a young fellow. I had a beau
tiful home; uiy parents were both
living, and 1 had a dear brother and
sister, twins, about three years older
than myself. Everything, it would
seem, that would tend to my happi
ness. And to-day I am here, hun
dreds of miles away from the home
of my childhood and y outh, my par
ents and brother dead and my sister
almost heartbroken. 1 will tell you
the reason; wine was often seen on
my father's table. Ho was a moder
ate man, he never drank to excess,
and he despised any one who did. I
was much like him. But my brother
Frank could not stop when he once
tii-ldcd to tho demon of strong drink.
More than once he was brought home
drunk. The next day he would heait
ily repent having brought such a dis
grace on tiie Rrainard name. He
would keep his promise faithfully for
a fow days, but then his wild com
panions would tempt him and he
would yield. So the matter went on
from bad to worse. At last, my father
in a lit of anger toid him that if he
did not soon turn over a new leaf, he
should never darken his (my father's;
doors again.' Frank was fearfully
angry, but he said nothing, he simply
bowed and left the room. In a few-
days, or rather nights, after this, i
Frak became engaged in a drunken i
quarrel. His opponent struck him to
the ground and tied. Frank was
brought home insensible. For a long
time they thought him dead, but fin
ally he began to show signs of life.
He did not die then, but lived on for
weeks, suffering the most horrible ag
ony. During this time, he could
never bear Fannie, Liy sister out of
his sight for a moment. I used to
think it, almost a miracle that she
bare up so, but she had a Helper that
I knew nothing of.
One day, he called to me and said:
'I am not long for this world, my
brother, and I want you to promise
me one thing. Promise me you will
never touch a drop of liquor as long
as you live. I am not afraid you will
make such a w reck of yourself as I
am, but don't help any other fellow
to do so. It is your moderate drink
ers that do the must hurt to the cause
of temperance. Promise me.' I prom
ised and up to this time" I have kept
that promise. He died soon after. In
a short time my parents followed him,
and now none are left but Fannie and
I. And naw, Eugene Evans, do you
wonder that the very thought of
di inking liquor makes me shudder
and turn pale." continued Ernest.
Eugene grasped his hand. "Ern
est" he cried, "I will never again ask
you or any else to drink, and I will
never drink again myself, God helping
me." Christian Secretary.
