"Urging Action Upon the Sill to Forfeit Cer
A Washington special says that Dr. H. M.
Hamblin. secretary oL the squatters'union of
O'Brien county , Iowa , has arrived there to
urge upon tbe senate the necessity of acting
speedily1 upon the bill to forfeit the land grant
of the Sioux City and St. Paul road. Dr.
Hamblin says there are 500 families of vari
ous nationalities located upon tbe 85.0CO acres
of the unearned grant. The eettlera were
induced to go to that section by the
letter of Secretary Teller of March , 1833.

unearned. ' 6y entered on It. expecting

would , as squ tiers , bavo tbo flna claim un

them , as , in a suit of ejectment , it would be
tequired to prove its own title , which , ot

Alaska's Secret * Being : Revealed by
Constant If csearcli.
There arc Indications that our north
ern possessions , which have heretofore
been practically a sealed book to the
people of this country , are to become
better known to us. The appointment
of territorial officers for Alaska seems
to have already stimulated research
and adventure in that hitherto unknown
country , and there are very likely to be
some very interesting , if not startling ,
developments. A telegram received
here from the commander of one of the
revenue vessels in those waters states
that his vessel has just returned from
some explorations in what have been
hitherto almost unknown regions of
Alaska , and that the discoveries are of
a very valuable and interesting nature.
A letter just received from San Francisco - :
cisco gives gives some particulars of
of the arrival of Captain Healey there
from a tour with a revenue vessel in
He rescued a party of starving miners
and the crew of a wrecked whaler far
at the north , saving ninety-eight per
sons from a horrible death. He sent a
boat a distance of three hundred and
fifty miles up the Kowgat river , a
stream hitherto little explored , obtain
ing some very valuable information
about the country and tbe people , gath
ering valuable specimens of minerals ,
plants and birds. He explored and
photographed a large and valuable
island near Bogastoff , captured and de
stroyed a lot of liquor which whalers
and illicit trailers were preparing to sell
to the natives and finally made a trip
far north to rescue the crew mentioned ,
encountering ice worse * than any that
Schley found in his trip north , and in
spite of the fact that he was twenly-
three days in an almost constant fog ,
he dropped anchor within a few rods of
the spot he had started to make on
hearing of the suffering crew. It is ex
pected that between the stimulated
spirit of exploration that the appoint
ment of these territorial officers has
awakened , and the reports of these
officers themselves , the people of this
country will get within the next few
months more information' about * ' 's
distant country than they ever had to-
fore. Cincinnati Times-Star.
Counterfeiting a Taluable Article.
The publisher of the Madison County
Eeeord writes from Huntsville , Ark. , as
to the eftect of Brown's Iron Bitters on
his wife. Mr. Daugherty says : "My
wife has been using the bitters for some
months ; the effect in-her case is re
markable. " He also writes that owing
to counterfeits and imitations it was
difficult to get the genuine article. That
difficulty has now been remedied ; imi
tators have been exposed and put to
flight. There , as elsewhere , Brown's
Iron Bitters can be had of all the re
spectable druggists at a dollar a bottle.

"And don't you skate , little girl ? " he
asked , as he sat down beside her.
"Oh , no sir. "
"But you can learn. "
"I guess I could , but I don't want to. "
"And do you come here just to watch
the skaters ? "
"Oh , no ; I come to watch Mrs. R. "
"Who's she ? "
"She's papa's second wife. He don't
want her to come , but she will do it. "
"And why do you watch her ? "
"Well , papa wanted her to promise
that she wouldn't lean on anybody
when she was skating with 'em , and
that she wouldn't flirt when she was
resting , but she wouldn't promise , and
so I came to watch her. These short
marks are when she leans , and these
long ones when she flirts.
"And you show them all to your
father ? "
"Yes , and he dates them and puts
them away , and by-and-by we'll have
enough to get a divorce on and marry
somebody who can't skate. " Detroit

That Remarkable Experience of
Rochester Physician Fully Authenti
Clavelnnd (0. ( ) Herald.
Yesterday and the day before we cop
ied into our columns from the Roches
ter ( N. Y. ) Democrat and Chronicle a
remarkable statement , made by J. B.
Henion , M. D.f a gentleman. who is
well known in this city. In that arti
cle Dr. Henion recounted a wonderful
experience which befell him , and the
next day we published from the same
paper a second article , giving : an ac
count of the "Excitement in Roches
ter , " caused by Dr. Henion's state
ment It is doubtful if any two arti
cles were ever published which caused
greater commotion both among profes
sional people and laymen.
_ Since the publication of these two ar
ticles , having been besieged with let
ters of inquiry , we sent a communica
tion to Dr. Henion and also one to H.
H. Warner & Co. , asking if any addi
tional proof could be given to us as to
the validity of the statements pub
lished. In answer thereto we have
received the following letters , which
add interest to the entire subject and
verify every statement hitherto made : .
ROCHESTER , N. Y.
GENTLEMEN : Your favor is received.
The published statement , over my sig
nature , to which you refer is true in
every respect , and I owe my life and
present health wholly to .the power of
Warner's Safe Cure , which snatched
me from the very brink of the grave.
It is not surprising that people should
question the statement I made , for my
recovery was as great a marvel to my
self , as to my physicians , and friends.
* * * J. B. HENION , M. D.
ROCHESTER , N. Y. , Jan. 21.
SIRS : Acknowledging your favor
duly received , we would say : The
best proof we can give you "that the
statements made by Dr. Henion are en
tirely true , and would not have bee a
published unless strictly so , is the fol
lowing testimonial from the best citi
zens of Rochester , and a card publish
ed by Rev. Dr. Foote , which you are at
liberty to use if you wish.
H. H. WARNER & Co.
To Wliom it may Concern :
In the Rochester Democrat and Chron
icle of December 31 there appeared a
statement in the form of a card from
Dr. J. B. Henion , of this city , recount
ing his remarkable recovery from
Bright's disease of the kidneys , after
several doctors of prominence had
§ iven him up , by the use of Warner's
afe Cure. We are personally or by
reputation acquainted with Dr. Henion ,
and we believe he would publish no
statement not literally true. We are
also personally or by reputation well
acquainted with Hv H. Warner & Co. ,
proprietor of that remedy , whose com-
merciarand personal standing in this
community are of the highest order ,
and we believe that they would not
publish any statements which were not
literally and strictly true in every par

There was published in the Rochester
Democrat anil Chronicle of the 31st of
December , a statement made by J. B.
Henion , M. D. , narrating how he had
been cured of Bright's disease of the
kidneys , almost in its last stages , by
the use of Warner's Safe Cure. I was
referred to in that statement , as having
recommended and urged Dr. Henion to
try the remedy , which he did , and was
cured. The statement of Dr. Henion is
true , so far as it concerns myself , and I
believe it to be true in all other respects.
He was a parishioner of mine and I
visited him in his sickness. I urged
him to take the medicine and would do
the same again to any one who was
troubled with a disease of the kidneys

Tears of a Baby.
I think there is no sadder sight on
earth than the tears of a baby. To see
the little round face that looks as if it
were only made for laughing , all twisted
up in a snarl of puckers , the bright eyes
squinted out of sight , and great , real
tears coursing down the pudgy cheeks ,
is enough to make a stoic weep in sym
pathy. Itis as if the man in the moon
were crying. I knew an English father
who , whenever one of his babies and
there was a host of them cried , would
say in tones of comical distress , "he'd
rather see a five-pun note than one of
those tears , any day , " and it seemed
to those little ones to be the heighth of
devotion and self-denial on his part.
Mrs. Paddock , a writer of Salt Lake
City , tells a pathetie story of a broken
hearted wife whose first baby never
cried aloud but wept in silence all the
time. Sleeping or waking , the tears
flowed from its eyes , and in a few weeks
it died , its mother said , of a broken
heart It had shed all the tears its
mother had repressed before its birtb ,
and its weeping face was a symbol of
the face of Utah. In antithesis to these
sad facts is a memory we nearly all can
conjure up of some fat , rascally baby
who would cry and cry , and cry until
every member of the family was en
listed in his cause , when he would sud
denly unbutton his eyes and lo ! not a
tear would be there , It had been a
crocodile bawl of the driest grief. De
