.AVAnmxoTo.v , Oct. CO. The repoit of
Colonel AV. F. Swlt/.lcr , chief of the bureau
of Rlntlstlos , of wool und manufactures ot
w.ool , shows that the number of sheep in the
United SUites rose from 1D,000UOO in 1840 to
61,000,000 in IbSI , but declined to 45,000,000 in
liW7. This marked decline occurred mainly
In tlio southern nnd western states , tiotably
in Texas , nnd is. attributed In great part to
the iloolino in the price of wool since ISSt.
The' Argentine Hcpubllo la now , next to
Gfcat Dritiiln , our source of supply , fol-
lo\vcd by Australia. Our iinK | > rts of wool
rose from 1,715,800 , pounds In 1MB to 114,033-
03) ) po.unds niiit-0 1SS7. The Increase in wool
iinjHirU has about kept pace with the
growth of our wool , products , both
having about doubled since 1800. The
value of our woolen product of 1850 was
f2.'i,6oO,000 in round numbers and of our Im
ports $10,000,000 , both together being about
tl..Ki per capita of our population. In 1830
th'o producls hod grown to $104,000 000 and
the imports were valued at 11,000,000. being
yi.ill per capita. Thus , while our products of
woolen have increased nlnco IbSO nearly
Bovcn-fold , our imports have increased about
W per cent , but the consumption i > or capita
hys doublet ! , { vhlch , the Btutistidau says , in
dicates in a striking manner the advance
ment of wealth und comfort in Btyle of living
among the people of this country. Statistics

United Kingdom is foremost In the foreign
trade in woolen , tlw imports during 1885
amounting In value to 4'JXX,000 ( nnd the ex

imports of111,000,000 and exports amounting
to $78,000,000 nml Germany next with imports
of Jr > ,000,000 und cxportsof $51,000,000. There
lion been u large decline in the woolen trudo
of Great Hritaln since 1874 us tihown by the
exports , whii-h uro as follows : Exports dur

S548,000OOU , showing u decline of 1339,000,000 ,
or yo per cent between Uio Iwo periods. This
decline the royul commission on the depres
sion of trade attributes in part to high for

manufacturers of Great Britain from foreign
markets. _

PAIIIS , ( via Havre ) , Oct. 20. [ Now York
Herald Cable Spcclul to the Bee. ] The sun
shone bright and warm yesterday on the
marrlugo of Miss Marv Holnian , of Balti
more , to Bar an Monchcurc , the first secre
tary of the Belgium legation ut Berlin , which
took place at 1 o'clock in the American
church , Avenue do 1' Alma. The ooromony
was performed by Rov. D. Morgan , rector ,
and the ceremony was made exceedingly im
pressive by processional hymn of Turin's mar
riage choral , "Father of Life" , sung by the
choirstcrs. Following the bride and bride
groom in procession were the bride's step
brother , Mr. Padelford nnd Mr. S. Holmun ,
Mr. and Miss Holmun and others of the fam
ily. At the altar awaiting the bridal
party were the groom's best man , Mr. Dulu ,
of Now York , nnd another step-brother of
the bride , Mr. Padelford , who gave her away.
After an impressive marriage service
the choir gave Sullivan's marriage
anthem , "O God Thou Art AVorthy to bo
Praised , " and the organist played Mendels
sohn's wedding march. The silk gown of the
bride wns superb. Her costume was rich
with loco and orange buds. A long white
trull , over which fell in profusion a long tulle
veil , was very elTectlvo mid exceedingly becoming -
coming to a bride. The baroness , by the
way , is a pretty brunette und during the
summer was -a great hello ut Sehwalbach.
Mrs. Holnian were stool colored velvet em
broidered in silver with a bonnet of the sumo
material and trimming. There were few
guests present owing to the short residence
in Paris of the bride und groom. Among
them were the wife of the United States
vice-consul nt Huvro , Mr. und Mrs. Gerry ,
Mrs. Itundolph , Mr. Er.mcis Goodridgo , Mrs.
and Miss Bronson and others. Baron Mon-
cheur has n leave of absence for six months
from Berlin so that he and the Baroness
Moiichour will pass the time In Homo. They
are to leave Paris to-day for Italy.

Los-no , Oct. 20. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the Bnu. ] The Herald's
queries as whether Mr. Chamberlain will
visil AVnshington or not continue to vari
ously exercise the metropolitan or provincial
press. This evening's Pall Mnll Garotte
voices thus , what appears to bo the general
sentiment of the radical or Gladstone press :
"Mr. Chamberlain lacks , we fear , ono es
sential qualification of a diplomatist ;
ho cannot hold his tongue. His ref
erences to Canada the other day
were unfortunate enough , but his
apology for them yesterday wns worse. Still
when you make n blunder in a matter like
that the only thing to do is to let It bo forgot
ten , ns far us possible. This elementary rule
of diplomacy Mr. Chamberlain has still to
learn. Yesterday he Insisted on enlarging
upon his original text and dilatfngonthovcry
slender tlo which bound Cannnda to the
mother country aud on the conflict of inter
ests between them. A moro injudicious line
to take on the eve of his departure to uet ns
imperial ambassador on Cnnndu's behalf , it
would bo hard to conceive. For , not
content with quarrelling with Canada ,
Mr. Chamberlain promptly proce'cded to full
foul of a large and influential section of
Americans. It is already notorious that Mr.
Chamberlain's bitterly anti-Irish nttitudo
will not tend to muko him u persona gratia in
the United States. Lust night ho did his
worst to muko himself less acceptable still by
abasing , in unmeasured terms , the whole
Irish section of America. AVhat is one to say
of u diplomatist who thinks it wise to colo-
briito his departure on a friendly mission by
picking u quarrel with both parties to the
dispute which ho Is sent to udjustf"

Thnt Faith Cure Victim.
OMAHA , Neb , , Oct. SO. To the Editor of
thoBKEj I noticed an < | irticle in your paper
u few days since headed , "Victim of the
Faith Cure , " "Death of a Woman Who
Scorned Human Remedies. " Ill this article
the author called the Scientists Chnrlcton's
of the faith cure and said that a simplejopern-
tion could have removed the trouble , but in
stead of doing this she squandered her money
on these Clmrlctons of faith cure and died
when she might easily have been
saved. AVhcu I read that article it
impressed mo as being very unjust , from the
fact that I have had eight years' experience
in mental healing and am aware of the fact
that this class of physicians very rarely got
case's of this kind to treat until medical aid
has first been tried until all hope of help
from that source has boon abandoned. This
fact led mo in justice to the science "that Is
proving such a great blessing to humanity , "
as well as to the friends of the deceased , to
ascertain the facts which I did by going
to the house and interviewing ono
of the family , and thcso are the facts as given
to mo by the party. Mrs. Baldwin catno
from Blair hero and for a time employed Dr.
Coffnmn ; did not remember Just how long
but as long as it seemed bust , as she did not
improve and this , too , at or near the begin
ning of her trouble. Failing in this they
took her to the Medical Institute in this city ,
v.'hcro she had an operation performed.
iVfter this she gradually failed and was able
to do very little If any work after
wards , und feeling thnt they had tested
medical filtill until it was useless
to try that longer , they appealed to the scien
tist , us many another has done , in the hope
that she as well as hundreds of others might
get well. But It being a severe case nnd far
advanced was hard to reach und did not respond
spend us readily as desired and the friends
fooling anxious to leave nothing undone f oi
lier relief they ngain called Dr. Coffmaiu Ho
visited her and performed another operation ,
and when asked by a member of the family if
she was in a dangerous condition , replied no ,
that she would get along all right now , but
Instead of that she sank rapidly until
death relieved her of suffering. I now leave
these facts. Just as I received them , for the
public to decide where the trilling came In.
Perhaps , however , in Justice to the scientist
who treated her , 1 ought to add that n very
small amount of money was squandered on
him , for , as my informant stated , ho VM
very kind and took but a very smu'l sum for
his services. A L < > viic 01 ? JUSTICB.
The Void Klcction liiiw.
OUAIU , "Neb. , Oct. 20. To the Editor of
tlifeBHB : Since the supreme court has de
clared the electtlon law , as enacted by the
present legislature for metropolitan cities , to
bo unconstitutional nnd void , the question
has arisen . - "Have wo nny election law at all
governing metropolitan cities , nnd , If not ,
who Is to appoint to conduct the
coming electionl" , / .
It is evident that the odlnw ) ; does not apply
to metropolitan cities , bpeimso at the time of
its passage no buch cities wxisted in Nebraska
nnd , therefore , it could not have been contem
plated by the legislature that they should bo
included therein. And it Is undoubtedly true
that wo have no reglsti-ition | law in Omaha.
But as fur as the ofllcora of election nro concerned -
corned , such as Judges and , , poll clerks , there
need bo no Inconvenience whatever because
the law hnswisolyprovldeO. that when ofliccrs
have been appointed pursuant to a public un
constitutional law bofort the same is ad-
uitted to bo such they tavo ofllcers do facto
until their successors ai6 ; lawfully appointed ,
or until the office which they fill Is abolished.
This doctrine has been Jk.uly established by
decisions of the suprenui courts of Massa
chusetts , Connecticut avd various other
states. Therefore , as Ujoflo ofllccs still exist ,
and as the mayor aud counull upimlntcd offi
cers to fill them under the law providing for
their appointment was declared void , they
may still act until some other provision is

An Eloquent Discourse at I ho First
M. K. Church.
Bishop C. II. Fowler , now on his way to
San Francisco , preached ut the First Meth
od [ at Episcopal church , last evening before n
very largo congregation. Ho Is n very elo
quent and exprcsfllvo speaker , nnd was
eagerly listened to by the largo congregation
present , Ho took his text from First Tim
othy 4:8. : Iu opening his sermon ho said :
"Tho short Saxon putting of what I wish to
express Is .that 'Godliness ' pays.1 The soul ,
like nnclimt Rome , Is approachable by many
avenues , und along those many roads can be
seen the many power * marching on
to capture that citadel , the soul. From n
distance wo look nt the picture. Into the
stream of passion God launches his gunboats
and seeks to capture the heart. Ho thunders
out , 'Son , give Mo thine heart.1 In my text
ho presents tha price of our salvation ti
peculiar bargain. Ho bears the risk , nnd wo
In a full-sense get the proMt. Goddoesnottrcat
lisas u stern , exacting Judge. Hots lenient
nml waits patiently and gives us u big chance
to make the bargain ; ho furnishes the capital
nnd wo reap all of the profits. Taking this
Investment with its toils us well ns Its thrones
and its crosses ns well ns Its crowns you will
find It a wlnsouio. Every thing possible
to Induce us to make this invest
ment is done. Heaven's beauties ,
the pearly gates , the strolls of gold mid the
Wonderful throne nro portrayed to us , and
on the other side the darkness nnd the fire of
hell is shown. The Investment ho asks us to
make is godliness. Now , to have the latter
wo must freely surrender self. The surren
der is not u question of equity , a question of
fortune , or a question of culture. Self is a
hard thing to give up. Then , to complete
the saleable article you must put the price In
dollars und cents , for that la too low a
standard. In religion a man's life
Is not worth n cent moro than the
religion costs. .AVhat it costs that is It
worth. You will find that it Is easier and
cheaper to carry the bunion of the church
than not to carry it. You cannot speculate
on the vices of men In Christianity , nnd con
sequently some say that Christianity is disad
vantageous. You cannot freely rent your
buildings for rum shops , nor can you hang
around the legislature and profit from the
cheap character of the legislators. Neither
can you speculate on men's souls. Godliness
is profitable from the thoughts it uwnkcns
und the themes it presents , and it Is also
profitable in the fellowships that it forms ,
and lastly In Immortality.

How Sovcrnl Scotch Insurance Coin-
l > aiiicM "Wore Defrauileil.
Paris Correspondence of the Epoch :
Another sensation of the week is the
arrest of a quack doctor , a chemist , nnd
nnd two or three other persons who
have cheated three Scotch insurance
companies out of the bagatelle of
$00,000. Novelists and playwrights who
are in search of material for an inter
esting book or drama fmould read all the
details of this Castolnun case , of which
I can only sketch nn outline. A Gorman
baron and naturalized American ( all
foreign adventurers who got into trouble -
blo hero call themselves Americans )
named Carl Von Schourer , cnmu to
Paris some eight years ago from
London , whcro ho had aban
doned his wife , and engaged
board at a pension for himself and
mistress , Julienne Bakfnluln. At thin
boarding hofeo ho became acquainted
with a quack doctor named Ca&tolnan ,
and the two concocted the plan to
swindle the insurance companies.
Scheurcr wont , to London in the spring
of 18S8 , elTecled the insurance on his
life in favor of his inistrcbri and returned
to Paris. Shortly afterwards Dr. Custol-
nnn hired a cottugo at Mcudon nnd was
there joined by Shcurcr and Mile.
Bnkfalula. The Gorman soon disap
peared and was replaced by a man in
the lust stages of consump
tion , Carl Glocknor , who had
boon induced by the pharmacion
Martinet to leave Paris on the plea that
Dr. Castolnan bad discovered 11 sure
remedy for his disease and nuking noth
ing better than to try its properties on
him gratis. In November of that year
the consumptive died and was buried
under the name of Carl von Schourer
Julienne Bnkfalula lost no time in put
ting up a wooden cross to the departed
"regretted by his family , " and in noti
fying the iiiBiirnneo companion thnt
Schouror was dead. An inspector
came to Moudon and mndo the
usual inquiries. Dr. Cnstchinn , the
servant , Mile. Bakfnlula and the
physician who attended the consumptive
swore before the English consul hero
that Schourer had died at Muedon on
November 20 , 1883. Consequently the
companies paid , in January , 1881. the
amount of insurance to Mllo. Bakfauilo ,
who gave $5,000 to the chemist for him
self and Dr. Castolmun. Then bho
quitted Mcudon to rejoin the Baron ,
and at the present moment the where
abouts of thcso two interesting portions
are unknown.
The nrrost of Dr. Castolnan has
thrown the radical socialist into conster
nation. The doctor was a frequenter of
their meetings and often advocated
their theories from the platform. Ho
"ficiontiflo" editor of
was , besides , the
Rochofort's ' Intrnnsigcnnt , uud I leave
you to imaifiiia If his art-cut has annoyed
the witty but. thoughtless chronlquour ,
this pure of the purcs who is always
pitching into everybody. Rochofort
permitted Caslolnnn , who never had a
diploma , to iiibult Pasteur and rldiculo
Ilia theories und to indulge in
a lot of modico-eooiological rubbish that
was the liiugliiiig-stouk of the pa par.
Rochofort'h vaudeville political articles
furnish all the humorous food his read
ers care for. Castolnan ib seventy-two
years old. Refused some years ago by
a lady whom ho wished to marry , ho at
tempted BuU'ido by shooting himself in
the mouth. The only result was to tnko
off his nose Instead of his head , and to
day the doctor is us repulsive ns. his

swelling nnd the mucous arising from catarrh ,
mid. In some instances , lecoTiio plugged up , no
that the air cannot pet in IIH freely as It should.
Shortness of breath follows , and the patient
breathes with labor and dlllluulty.
Jn either case there Is a sound of crackling
and wheezing Inside the chest. At this Mage oj
the disease the breathing is usually moro rapid
than when in health. The patient has also hot
dashes over his Iwdy.
The pain which accompanies this condition it
of a dull character , felt In the chcbt , behind the
breast bone , or under the hhoiilder bhidw. The
pain may como and go la t a few days and
then bo absent for several others. The cough
that occurs in the first stages of bronchial ca
tarrh Is dry , comes on ut Intervals , hacking in
character and is usually most tronbTesomo in
the morning on rising , or going to bed at night ,
nnd it may bo in the llrst evidence of the disease
