Last evening William Dane , the ISay-
liss park policeman , was subjected to
homo annoyances , and charged Frank
Shoemaker , a youngman who chanced
to be in the park , with being one of the
oll'enders. Ho insisted on young Shoe
maker telling him who the others were ,
and the latter refusing to give an information
mation , threatened to ariest him. This
naturally excited Shoemaker's ire , and
words followed. The park policeman
caught hold of him , and the young man
resisted. In the scrimmage the police
man was bitten as well as bruised. He
called out for another young man to go
after another policeman to help him , and
as the messenger started oil' the
park policeman threatened him if ho
diil not hurry up. The threat
maddened the otherwise willing messen
ger and he concluded that the park
policeman could go himself to police
headquarters , or even a nearer police.
It was sometime before the light was
ended. Then the park policeman lodged
complaints against young Shoemaker
charging him witii assault , with mayhem ,
and with resisting an ollieer. The young
man went free ou his own recognisance ,
to appear to-day.

Yesterday was Arbor tree day , or was
supposed to be , but there were no indica
tions of,1(10 ( fact hero. The schools went
nlong with their regular exercises , the
routine duties occupying the time and at
tention. The reasons for not observing
the day are numerous. One is that Coun
cil Bluff's is so far ahead of DCS Moincs
and other places , where the day was ob
served , that such cities will have to pass
a good many Arbor days in planting
trees before they catch up. There is little
tlo need of more trees here. The school
grounds nro well favored in this respect.
There have been n good many trees
planted here by the less sentimental way
of hiring men to do the work. Another
reason is that in view of the interrup
tions caused to many pupils by measles
and other diseases , it was deemed bettor
to improve the day in study and work.
Taken altogether Council Bluffs will be
found fully abreast of those cities which
observed the day in the prescribed man

Treatment and Baths Given Ladies by Mrs , Dr ,
Richards on Tuesday , Thursday & Saturday ,
Electricity is a remarkable natural agent which lias long been known and utilized
as a remedy for disease , and continued experience has enlarged its sphere of useful
ness anil improved its appliances by which it is cniplojccl until its utility anil virtue
has become second to no other known remedy , in the treatment of certain forms of
disease. This agent is employed here in all its most serviceable forms by the aid of
large batteries , static machines , electric cabinet baths , electric \\atcr baths , the elcc-
tiic chair and electrodes for treating all parts of the body. We are prepared to do
all that can be done with these great ictncdics. In cases of Rheumatism , Neuralgia ,
Paralysis , Spinal Irritation , Rectal Diseases , Nervous Diseases in females arising
from Uterine disorders and many other chronic and subacute troubles , it stands at
the head of all known remedies or methods cure. A thorough study of it for jears
and the successful treatment of hundreds of cases , after all other lemedies bad fail
ed , is sufllcicnt evidence of its great worth anil perfectly satisfies usith its good
effects on the diseased body. In the great hospitals and sanitarians of America
and Europe , electricity is leading all other methods of treatment. In all leading
colleges the professors are teaching electricity as one of the potent remedies and a
special chair is appointed in manv of them. Many of the ablest physicians of all
schools arc making a specialty ofclcctricitv to the exclusion of almost everything
else. This great remedy has often fallen into disrepute by being recommended and
used by persons , and physicians , perfectly ignorant of its properties and powers ,
who would as often advise and use the wrong current as the right one or depend
upon it in diseases for which it is not adopted. We are sure that w lien the people
become educated in the use ol electricity ( or many diseases vritb nhich the body
is alllicted and find the jjreat good therein , the medicines and patent righted nos
trums upon which they now rely will grow old and dusty on the shelves. Electricity
is nature's great remedy and to fully understand and skilfully apply it is our effort
and aim in life.
