Too cool weather of the past two or three
days has arouicd the Council Bluffs In
cendiary , whoever he may be , to grcatoi
activity ; and public speculation is again
busy trying to imagine where the flames will
next broalc forth. After lying dormant for
about ten days , and allowing the flro depart-
nicntto get well rested from the result of his
former caprices , the lira bug again coaics to
the front , and monopolizes the undivided at
tention of property owners. Four times
within thirty-sk hours the torch of the arson
fiend has been njpllcd , and about <X > C
dollars worth of property has gene up in
Tlio department was called out yesterday
morning nt an early hour , shortly after the
fire at the rialc barn was extinguished , to the
property at South Main street and Tenth
avenue , known as the Kngla saloon , in' n
building owned by Martin Hughes. A
bucket llllod with waste had been sot close
up to the side of the building und sot on lire.
When dlscovorcd the flames were well under
way. and tlio whole Hide of the building
would soon have been enveloped. The lira
was extinguished before very much datnago
was done. Oil had been used to ensure the
destruction of the building , and but for tlio
timely discovery this would huvo been the
About 3 o'clock in the afternoon anotho r
alarm called the department to Mynstor
street , whnro the barn of George Richmond ,
of the Boston ' 1 on company , was In imminent
danger of destruction. A pile of rubbish a
short distance away had boon flrod , and the
wind blow the ( lames against the building.
The lira was extinguished by the depart
ment before any dumaga was dono.
The surprising feature of these Arcs is
that not the slightest clue has bcon secured
to Implicate an.v party with the crime of
setting thorn. The police nro watching vigi
lantly , and several of the iircs have been
discovered In a very short time after thov
were set , but the Incendiary has always
tukon his departure Just a second too soon.
Ho must carry oil in some quantity , bo It
great or small , as the traces of It are unmis-
takublo. Lately , however , ho seems to huvo
had a penchant for oily waste , and uses that
material with which , to IdaJlo a midnight
bla/o. Wednesday night , as Olllcer Custor
was passing up Mam street , ho noticed
something Hmoldering in the middle of the
street. He started out to Investigate , ana
found a small bundle of oil waste burning ,
where it had apparently been dropped.
He was stamping out the Hro , when n young
man who rooms in an adjoining building
called from the window : "Didn't I put 'out
that tlrol" The ofllcor then ascertained , in
response to several inquiries , that the young
man had been out late and on returning to
his room found a largo package of the waste
burning in liis room. It had evidently beea
placed there by the incendiary for the pur
pose of burning the building.
The lire nt tho.rinlc stanle was started In
the same way. Mrs. I'lko , who lives in a
part of thn building , was the ono who dis
covered the lire. Slio opened her back door ,
which oiicas into a small area directly ue-
stdo the shed which was burned , and saw
tlio flro just after It was started. It was of
vary little size and was at the side ot the
corn crib. The spot whore it started was
oasv of access from the alloy , and the in
cendiary had aiiDarotitly stepped In just long
enough to drop his little bunch ol fire , and
then passed on. Public sentiment is being
strongly aroused and it will not bo pleasant
for the wretch if caught.

In the district court yesterday the case of
G. W. Castner vs J. M. Uookor was on trial ,
and was not completed when court ad
journed. The plaintiff , who Js the director
of a school district In Nor walk township ,
sues the defendant , a sohool teacher , for $30
board. The director agreed to give the
school teacher his bounl free If ho would
teach in that district at the usual price , pro
vided ho was sufllclentlv "up" In higher
mntliematlcbto touch the director's children ,
who were unusually well advimood. The
plulntill alleges that tlio teacher was not as
much of a success as ho anticipated , being
unable to solve cortnln problems that culled
for his attention , and was also "stuck" In
quadratic equations in a most hopeless man
ner. This being deemed u violation of the
contract , ho aueu for board. The teacher
alleges that ono of the director's children
was unruly , and was sunt homo , which an
gered the parent , ana ha tnon net about
plu.ving oven with the toaohor.

A Foriror Arrested.
Deputy Sheriff O'Connor arrested Wade
Woodward lust evening , and placed him ia
the county jail , where He will bo held to
await the action of the district court on a
churgo of perjury , for which crime lie has
just beea indicted by the grand jury. The
indictment was returned last Saturday , but
Woodward succeeded In dodging the ofllcers
until last evening. Until a short time
ago ho was employed as head cleric
at the giocory house of Parks & Son.
The crime for which ho was indicted was
the forging of a check for S17 on J. E Hark-
ness , of this city , later he paid ever the
money , and demanded the check , thinking to
destroy all evidence of his crime , but Mr.
Harltnoss would not return it. Woodward
secured the money with which to redeem
the forged check , by getting John Honoto
cash a worthless check on the Citizens bunk ,
and it is sal a that another charge of obtain
ing money under false pretences will be
brougnt against him.
Woodward has resided In this city for
several years , and has boon regarded as a
straightforward young man , but since this
matter developed several unfavorable stories
tiavo been made public , and ho Is made n
principal actor in several suspicious oc
currences. He foiled to give ball last ovou-

AtTtpr the election or 18(11. (
In the Inst iiutiiuor of the Contur.v
Marr.a7.lno , Mosars.'UJny mid Nicoluj
nnrrato thoh * IdotCtff what happened at
the wnr department on the ovonlnu
ill tor the second election of President
Lincoln In 1801. Aa they wore not present -
ent , their report. n\ist bo a nuittor ol
hearsay. I do not know tlmt nny ot the
pnrtlculnra they rbhito are dollclont In
nccurobythough J n testify Unit while
I was there at that time , I did not ob
serve them. ' -i
I was not usually on duty In the wnr
department at night , says Charles A.
Uiuuv ; hut Mr. Stanton had directed mete
to coino over Unit evening , and I ar
rived pretty early , say at 8 o'clock or
half-past 8. The excitement of the
struggle had been intoiuo. In all my
experience I have nover-nvitiicssod any
other election that lnul so much poli
tics In it. All the resources of partisan
science , backed by the immense power
of the vast and wldo-sprond expendi
tures ot the war department , then about
a million a day , hud boon employed by
the astute and' relentless statesman at
the head of the war olllco ; and ho did
it with a pertinacity and'skill that
never have been surpassed. Of course
no great stop had been taken without
the knowledge and consent of Mr. Lin
coln , himself a politician of a very for-
tllo and superior order ; but thu engi
neer whoso hand was never taken oil
the machine , and whoso purpose never
relaxed Its high-pressure energy , was
Mr. Stanton ; and his ardent and ox-
cltablo nature was kept at fever heat to
the very last moment of the contest ,
and afterward. ,
The president , apparently as serene
as a summer morning , was in Mr. Stan-
ton's largo private room , andnoonowus
with him except the secretary anilGon-
oral Eckort , wiio came continually with
telegrams. The result of the voting
was of such a decisive character that
the HOWS arrived mucli earlier than had
boon expected , and when I wont in I
learned both from the president and
secretary that the question seemed al
ready to bo substantially settled. Each
dispatch that was received seemed only
to add to the apoaront certainty' , and by
9 o'clock there was no longer any doubt.
But without waiting for that hour , Mr.
Lincoln drew from his breast a thin
yellow-covered pamphlet. "Dana , " said
no to mo , "have you ever road any thing
of Petroleum V. NasbyV" pronouncing
Nasby as though the first syllable wore
spelled with the letter o. "No , sir , "
said I , "not much , but I know ho writes
from the Confederate Cross Heads and
prints his things in the Toledo Blade. "
"Yes , " said Mr. Lincoln , "that's so ,
but that is not the whole. Pull up your
chair and listen. " I drew up to him ,
and ho began to road aloud , to mo only
and not to Stunton , ono after another of
Petroleum's funny hits , and between
each of them wo had a quiet little laugh
all to ourselves. But the lion head of
the secretary showed plainly that ho
had no sympathy with this amusement ;
in fact , his face wore its dai kest and
sternest expression. However , the
reading wont on , 6ceasionnlly broken
by General Eckcrt'a entrance with
another telegram , tor which Mr. Lincoln
paid no very serious attention , and he
quickly turned buck to the reading
every time. In this way lie road para
graphs and oven pnges of Nnsby , until
finally a dispatch was brought in of a
more important nature , and ho laid the
pamphlet down to attend to it.
While ho was thus engaged , Mr.
Stanton motioned to mo to come with
him into General Eckort'a room , and
when the door was shut , ho broke out in
fury : "God dtunn it to hell , " said ho ,
"was there ever such nonsense ? Was
there over such inability to appreciate ,
what is going on in an awful crisis ?
LTero is the fate of this whole republic
at stake , and here is the man around
whom it all centers , on whom it all
depends , turning aside from this
momentous , this incomparable issue , to
rood the God damned trash of a silly
This fiery speech of the enraged
secretary was interrupted by General
Eckort , who had another telegram
which ho showed to him , and with
which wo all wont back to Mi- .
Stanton's own oflleo , In order that the
president might see it.
Hardly had ho begun to read it , however -
over , when a new occasion of irritation
arose. The messenger brought in a
card and handed it to the president ,
who said nt once as ho passed the card
over to the secretary , "Show him in ! '
Stanton road it , and , turning to mo , ex
claimed in a low voice : "God in heaven ,
it is Whitolaw Reid ! " I understood the
point of thin explosion at once. Mr.
Held , who was then the correspondent
of the Cincinnati Gazette and a great
friend of Secretary Chase in Washing
ton , was not liked by the secretary of
war. This dibliko had gene so far that
the door-keepers at the war department
had received directions that Mr. P.oid
was not to bo admitted. But whoa he
sent Ills card in to the president , they
could not refubo it. Mr. Reid
came in and was greeted by
Mr. Lincoln , but not by the sec
retary. His purpose was merely to ob
tain from headquarters and from the
highest authority the assurance that
the election had certainly gone in favor
of Lincoln ; and after expressions of
tuanks and congratulations ho with
drew. Just then Judge David C. Carter
came in with two or throe orthor gen
tlemen , among them Mr. Fox , of the
navy department , and the reading of
Petroleum V. Nasby from the confeder
ate cross roads was not resumed.
Those Incidents of a momurnblo his
torical event are not recorded in any

yet they appear to rae interesting and

A. Singular Community Where Women
Nothing is more curious than to study
the effects upon a largo society of the
total exclusion of the female sex , Bays
Murray's Magazine. It is commonly
thought that mon by themselves must
grow rude and sav.igo , that it is to
women wo owe all'tllo graces and refine
ments of social intercourse. Nothing
can bo further from the truth. I ven
ture to say that in all the world there
is not so porfoctly.pblite and orderly a
society as Unit of Athoa. As regards
hospitality and gracious manners , the
monks and their servants put to shame
the most polished wontorn people. Dis
order , tumult , confusion scorn impossi
ble In the land of peace. If they have
difloronccs and squabbles about the
r'ghts 01 property , these things are re
ferred to law courts and determined by
argument of advocates , not by disput
ing and high words among the claim
ants. While life and property are
still unsafe on the main land and
on the sister peninsulas of Cassan
dra and Longos , Athos has boon for
centuries as secure us any country in
England. So fur , thenall the evidence
is in favor of the restriction. Many of
the monks , being carried to the penin
sula in early youth , have completely
forgotten what a woman is Uko , except
for the brown , smoky pictures of the
Panugla with her infant , in all the
churches , which the strict iconography
of the orthodox church has made as un
lovely and non-human us it Is possible
to bo. So fur , so well. But if the monk
imngino'l ' they could sunplv oxpungi
the other BOX from their life wlthou
any bul th < ? obvious conaonuuncos the ;
were mistaken. ' What striken the traveler
oler Is not the rudonoss. the untidiness
the discomfort of a purely mule society
it is rather its dullness and depression
Some of the older monks were indcei
jolly enough ; they drank their wine
and cracked their jokes frooly. Bu
the novices who attended at the
table , the men and boys win
had coino from the muinlnm
to work as servants , muleteers , labor
ors. Boomed all suffering under a per
uianent depression and sadness. The
town of Karyes is the most somber tind
gloomy place I ever saw. There are nc
laughing groups , no singing , no game !
among the boys. Every one lookoi
Borloim , solemn , listless , vacant , as UK
case might be , hut devoid of keenness
and interest In life. At first one might
suspect that the monies were hard task
masters , ruling their servants as slaves ,
but this is not the real solution. It 1 :
that the main source of interest anil
cause of quarrel in all those animals ,
human and other , does not occur. I'oi
the dullness was not confined to the
young monks' or the laity it had In-
vadcd oven the lower animals. The
tomcats , which were there in crowds
passed one another in moody silence
along the roofs. They seemed perma
nently dumb. And if the cocks had nol
lost their volco and crowed frequently
in the small hours of the morning , thcii
note suoinod to bo a wall , not a chal
lenge the clear though unconscious
expression of a just want in their lives ,
I'olRontnc In India.
Dr. Lyon , the analyst to the trovorn-
mont of Bombay. In his last annual re
port , has much to say on the use of poi
son in India. This seems to bo on the
increase , for while ho hud to deal with
800 of those cases last year , he had only
282 the year before , and the goncra'l
work of analysis had increased fivefold
flinro the first report was issued in 1872 ,
says the London Times. Part of this
enormous increase is due to the increase
in the criminal Ube of poisons , and it is
noticeable that vegetable poisonswhich
were most generally in use a few years
ago , are now giving way to metallic
poisons. This i& attributable to the
ease with which such drugs , such as
arsenic , may now be obtained in India ,
there being practically no restriction
on their sale. In eighty-four undoubted
cases of human poisoning in the year ,
arsenic was used in forty-one , pounded
glass in three , copper in six , mer
cury in live and red lead in
three. Of the remaining twenty-seven
cases opium was used in fifteen , datura
in five , alcohol in two , prussic acid in
one and oleander and other plants for
the remainder. In n largo number of
cases the poisoner is never discovered ;
a family sits down to rice which they
have themselves carefully washed ; all
are taken ill und one dies ; arsenious
oxide in largo quantities is discovered
in the dish , but the murderer is never
discovered. Many coses of a similar
character are quoted byDr.Lyon. Flour
is found in many cases to bo adulterated
with an enormous amount of arsonious
oxide. Poisoning by powdered glabs is
comparatively now in India ; I hero were
only three cases during the year. In
one a man threw a packet of powdered
glass into a rice mill ; in another a
woman pounded her colored glass ban
gles and mixed thn powder with the
grain she was grinding for her hus
band's food. In many cases the poisons
are traced to village groceries , who al
ways appear to have largo quantities ,
their chief stocks being composed of thu
basest of powerful alkaloids , of opium ,
datura , plumbago root and various mer
curial compounds. Through those men
poisons are easily procured , and the
instances quoted by Dr. Lyon show that
poisoninc is a common crime in India
on account of those facilities , and that
it is also one of the most difficult to dis
BEING duo to the presence of tirio
acid In tlio blood , is most effectually
cured by the use of Aycr's Sursapn-
rlllu. Be mire yon get Aycr's and no
other , and take it till the poisonous
acid is thoroughly expelled from the
system. Vfo challenge attention to this
"About two years ago , after Buffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
eont , being able to wall ; only with great
discomfort , and having tried various
remedies , including mineral waters ,
without relief , I saw ly nn advertise
ment in n Chicago paper tlmt a man had
been relieved of this dlstiessing com
plaint , after long suffering , by taking
Ayer's SnrHnparilln. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine , and took
it regularly for cinlit months , and am
pleased to state Hint it lias effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re
turn of the disease. " Mrs. R. Irving

"One year ace I was taken ill with
Inflammatory rheumatism , being con
fined to my lionso six months. I came
out of the sickness very much debili

disordered in every w ay. I commenced
using Aycr's Sarsaparilla and began to
