“Yea. though 1 walk through the valley of the

Tv. Hazramaut no glare of light
it'dazzles or distracts the sight.
The sky is curtained in with gray:
Low-hanging mists obscure the way.
And, clinging test to wood-andcopse.
Weep on my path in sluggish drops.
Men dwell not in this land content:
.No traveler’s foot is hither bent.
And yet with comfort strange. deeo fraught
Wove the slow hours in Hazramaut.*
Meseems the paths are much perplexed
In gloaming Hazramaut. Which next
To try, when one is built across,
And one is cut, with weltering foss,
And otic is tangled thick with thorn
And one leads on to wastes forlorn?
Hut see! the hopeless walls divide;
The waste grows green; the way is wide
And plain, which I had groping sought.
Tis clearer now in Hazramaut.
In Hazramaut how still the airl
Kept >se and ealm are everywhere.
No early caroling bird or late
Besets the ear importunate.
I radiate silence tvs I go;
As I approach men whisper low.
N o festal songs, uo conflicts rude,
On. my deep-seated peace intrude—
Sweet peace, in broken hearts inwrought—
What time I dwell in Hazramaut.
Safe bides my soul in Hazramaut,
By sore-besetting ills unsought.
Which, in this dim and voiceless air.
Hurt nor molest as otherwhere.
So sure I walk, so firm I stand.
Safety and strength on every hand!
The staff that stays nie in the way,
The rod that smites me when I stray!
Sad heart take courage! There is naught
To lack or fear in Hazramaut.
In Hazramaut is best of cheer,
There comes my soul's beloved near.
In that still land I list to him;
I see him when the light is dim.
Haste not, sweet, serious twilight hour!
Bide with me, friendly, awful power!

From garish day sequestering.

GOV. BODWELL’S STUB PEN.
Did Mr. Blaine Tell Kim to Uee it on the
Quack Doctor Bill 1
A Portland Me., dispatch to the New
York World says:
The Maine Medical Association, which has
been in session here, has taken up for dis
cussion the veto of what is called the
“Quack Doctor bill,” which was killed at
the last session of the Legislature by Gov.
Bodwell. For several years the physicians
in this State have been trying to have a
law passed requiring all doctors to furnish
diplomas of graduation from some medic al
institution, and then be registered. At the
last session of the Legislature the Medi
cal Association succeeded in getting the bill
through, and then a committee of the physi
cians called on Gov. Bodwell and asked him
if he would sign it. He replied that he had
himself long been of the opinion that a law
should bo passed to shut out quacks and
herb doctors from practising in Maine,
(kiv. Bodwell said that he would sign the
bill, which he did. and sent it to the Secre
tary of State. The bill had not
been in the Secretary’s office more
than twenty-four hours when some
body noticed that the signature of the
Governor had been erased by drawing a
coarse stub pen through it. A number of
well-known medical men who were in
Augusta called on Gov. Bodwell to ask
what it meant. In reply he simply said that
he had signed the bill and thon on second
thought recalled it from the Secretary and
vetoed it. They asked him why he did this
after assuring them that he thoroughly fa
vored the bill, and received no answer ex
cept that on mature consideration he had
concluded to erase liis name. This killed the
bill, and the document is now to be seen at
the State House with the name “J. R. Bod
woll'’ written in a bold hand and a black pen
mark through it.
The members of the medical profession
were highly indignant and began an investi
gation to ascertain why the Governor
changed his mind. Upon inquiry it was
found that the "Quack Doctor’s”- bill came
up while Mr. Blaine was away from home
for a day or two. When he returned to
Augusta and read in the Kennebec Journal
the report of the doings of the Legislature
he saw that the Registration bill had passed
both houses and had gone to the Governor.
He at once sent for Gov. Bodwell and told
him that he must not sign the bill.
A Portland physician, who carefully in
vestigated the matter, told the correspon
dent that he knew the following conversa
tion then took place:
“But I have already signed the bill,” re
plied Gov. Bodwell.
“Then take your name off from it,” Mr.
“But I have sent it t-o the Secretary of
State and several men interested in the bill
have seen it.”
“That makes no difference. You
must recall the bill and draw your pen
After some opposition to this course, Gov.
Bodwell promised to do so, and next day
sent for the bill, erased his signature and re
turned it, vetoed.
As soon as this action was made known it
created much talk. Hundreds of people
went to the State House to see if the facts
were true and to get a view of the bill with
the erased signature appended.
As an outcome of the affair Gov. Bodwell
was severely criticized, and Mr. Blaine has
earned the title of “Governor.” Among the
physicians and the Democrats he is known
as “Governor” Bluine. -
The correspondent who was recently in
Augusta saw the famous bill with the erased
signature and met Gov. Bodwell. In answer
to the question as to why he signed the bill
and then vetoed it he said:
“After siguing the bill I was called upon
by several gentlemen who expressed strong
disapproval of the act, aud I concluded to
change ray action.”
The reason given for Mr. Blaine’s anxiety
to have the bill killed is said to be that it
would personally affect him. As is already
well known, he is in the habit of having a
doctor attend him frequently with massage
treatment. This doctor lives in Boston, but
is not a graduate of any medical institution
within the meiuiing of the Registration act,
which so narrowly escaiied becoming a law.
At Mr. Blaine’s bidding he is in the habit of
coming down from Boston and giving
the former medicated laths, and what Mr.
Bluine calls “rubbings.” Had the law passed
it would have shut him out from practising
in Maine and would deprive Mr. Blaine of
the treatment. For those reasons, it is said
on good authority, Mr. Blaine induced Gov.
Budwell to veto the bill. His influence
with the Governor is well known. Mr.
Bluine took an uctivo interest in the last,
election, mid Bodwell was his selection for
Since the unusual action of Gov. Bod

ring themselves to see a way out of the
Judge 0. W. Goddard, a prominent Port
land lawyer, and also Professor of Medical
Jurisprudence in Bowdoin College, was en
gaged as counsel, and expressed the opinion
that the bill had become a law the instant
the signature of the Governor was append
ed. When the bill left his bands it was a
law, Judge Goddard holds, and neither Gov.
Bodwell nor anybody pise could affect its
validity by drawing a pen through the
signature. At the mstanoo of the Mu ino
Medical Association, Judge Goddard went
to Augusta to investigate the Legislative rec
ords, und found that the bill hail been en
tered officially os approved and then an
'erasure had been made. The following is
the evidence of the mutilation of the State
records: Toward the latter part of the
look, immediately after the line devoted to

Uo” vituhy dajscemiblo. In the second
column the words “An act to regulate the
practice of medicine” and in the third
column the words and figures “March lti”
are erased. In the fourth column there is
another similar erasure, leaving the words
and figures “March IT” faultily visible. The
number of the next bill on the following
1 lie is 425. No other erasure appeal's in the
blotter. On the cover of the register is a
gilt title. “Titles of Acts.” The book is a
register of acts approved by the Governor.
Its pages contain only three columns
first, the number of the act in figures;
second, its title; third, the date of its ap
Near the end of the register, at the bot
tom of tiie left-hand page, is the entry of
’ No. 421, with title and dateol' approval.
I his act, numbered in the register 421. is the
same act which is entered in the blotter as
Bili No. 424. On the top of the succeeding
ruht-hand page appeal's the entry of Act
No. 422, with its title and the date of its
approval. That act, numbered in the
register 422, is the same act which is
entered without erasure hi the blotter as
Bill No. 435.
Between the two entries 421 and 422 in the
register there is no erasure; neither is there
any entry of the act to regulate the practice
of medicine, but there is evidence of the
tearing out of a leaf, the mutilation of the
register revealing a narrow, ragged margin
close to the binding. It is apparent from
inspection that the partially erased line in
the blotter originally read thus: "425. An
act to regulate the practice of medicine:
March Hi, March 17, aud it would seem
that upon one side of the leaf which has
been torn from the register, or “titles of
acts," there must have originally been re
corded at the top of the page the following
entry: .‘422. An act to regulate the practice
of medicine, March 17. ’
In his report to the Medical Association,
Ju ice Goddard holds that:
“First, the bill was approved; second, sent
to the See. etary of State; third, the mutila
tions of the lawks in the State Department
and the erasures of the entries which re
corded the fact and date of the Governor’s
aprroval of said act, and its deposit in said
department as a public law were unauthoriz
ed by the Governor and were accomplished
without his knowledge aud are of no effect
to invalidate, repeal or nullify the same;
fourth, that tlie bill was a law when the
mutilation was done. ”
In view of this report the committee ap
pointed to investigate the matter this after
noi n presented the following remarkable re
“Resolved , That, in the opinion of this
association, the Governor, by abstracting
the registration act from the statutes of
this State, has violated his oath of office,
which requires him to uphold and execute
rather than to destroy the laws.
“ Resolved , That his refusal to submit the
question of the legality of his performance
to the Supreme Court, knowing that no
other man could obtain its opinion on the
matter during the present administration,
showing the indefensibility of his at
titude, and that he displays the dis
position of a despot or the scurrility of a
pusii .animous agent of unscrupulous political

Strong speeches were made by many
prominent physicians against Gov. Bodwell
and frequent allusions were made to Blaine's
hand in the affair. It was Judge Goddard’s
aim to carry the matter to the Supreme
Court, but Qov. Bodwell’s refusal to allow
this precludes it. Some of the old physicians
who have never been interested in politics
say that if Gov. Bodwell ever becomes a
candidate for any office again they will leave
their practice and stump the State against
him and Blaine.
The probability is that Gov. Bodwell’s
devotion to Blaine will end his political
A CONVERT TO BUDDHA.
The Cause of a Divorce Suit.
From the Baltimore American.
Alice C. Salter, through John G. Mitchell,
filed a bill in the City Circuit Court yester
day, pray in o u vorce from her husband,
Ge< rge W. Salter, to whom she was married
Ai ril 4,1883, at St. Luke’s P. E. Church.
The oil, aliege-i un it axter the marriage
Salter tcok his wife to St. Louis, Mo.,
where he mo\ ed irorn one boarding-house to
another, until Ju y, 1883, when they went to
New York city f< r one week, and then he
took her home to Virginia They afterward
lived in Brooklyn, from October, 1884, to
May, 1885, and the wife then came to
Baltimore. She charges ttfcit Salter is a
fanatic on tl.e übject of mind cures and
Buddhism, and tuat he says ne is studying
to become a Buddhist priest, as that is
the only true religion, and tnat he has
sought to press that belief upon her.
Further, that Salter has other vagaries that
unfit him for any kind of business.
In conversation with a reporter last
night, Mrs. Salter said she was guided in
her action by her solicitude for her little
girl, whom she wished to remove from the
influence of her husband’s queer ideas.
“Besides being a religious fanatic,” she
continued, "Mr. Salter is an advocate of the
mind cure theory, which he is now regularly
practicing in Brooklyn. Before I married
him I knew him as a great temperance leader
and as an exemplary young man, in the
employ of a leading dry goods house in this
city. In St. Louis, Chicago and Brooklyn I
suppose he must have had eight or ten
different positions in half as many years.
He lost most of his places by inattention to
duty and the absorptiou of his mind in
whatever ‘ism’ there happened to be going
around at the time. He had a perfect
mania for reading and arguing points
advanced by cranks of almost every
description. Upon for-akiag the temper
ance banner, he took up the mind-cure
theory, which he afterward tried upon me
during a spell of sickness. The test was
that I must imagine myself well, and I
would get well. His plan might work
where the complaint is some trivial illness,
but where a person has a chronic affection
or is in danger of death, I think it is folly to
experiment in any such theory. He also
tried the euro on my child when she was
sick, but it failed. He became proficient iu
the mind-cure business in a college in
Boston, where he attended a course of
lectures, and read exteusively on the subject.
It was iu the midst of this hobby that a
Buddhist priest arrived in New \ ork, and
he became wild over him. He attended
his lectures, studied his doctrine, and then
embraced his religion. He persuaded me by
every tneaus in his power to i< in the religion,
but, of course, I refused. He also adopted
the Buddhist diet, which consists of nothing
but vegetables and fish—'neat of every
description being barred from the table.
His explanation of this ethereal menu was
that it was more like unto the spirit diet
and was, tin refore, better calculated to
draw the two into closer communion. Al
of this sort of thing made me shudder for
tho future of my child, and resolved me to
apply for a divorce. Mr. Salter, as vet,
knows nothing of my action, But Isupposi
he will soon hear of it."

A Venerable Bird With an Interesting
From the Philadelphia Record.
There is always a cordial “How d’ye do!”
and a polite “Good-by,” for the visitors to
the bird-houses in the Zoological Gardens,
out w here the Girard avenue bridge spans
the Schuylkill river. “Crockie Baldwin”
does the honors for the birds, and lie lias
unite an extensive vocabulary, which be
draws from as occasion requires. “Crockie”
is a handsome sulphur-crested cockatoo who
came from Australia mauy years ago, long
before the Zoological Gameiis were thought
The bird has quite a history, and if he
were able to relate all he bus seen or heard
he would doubtless tell a marvelous tale.
To begin with, "Crockie” is about 80 years
old, as near as can be ascertained, and Is
consequently the patriarch of the strange
and varied colony which inhabits the Gar
den. "Crockie” came to this country about
sixty-five years ago, but who his first owner
was is not known, and the bird has never
offered to tell, even if he remembers those
years of long ago. Mystery anil uncertainty
surround the first twenty-five years of
“Croekie’s” American citizenship, but the
last forty years of his life are
familiar to many who have perhaps
forgotten the bird as he passed from
their view. Some forty years ago “Crockie”
took up his residence in the Pennsylvania
Hospital, and for thirty years he was one of
the features of the institution. His owner
kept the gates of the hospital, and “Crockie”
sat on liis perch in the little house at the
gate, and day after day, year in and year
out, ho watched the parsers by. Patients,
nurses, physicians, students and visitors
came beneath his view as he sat there. To
all who passed "Crockie” croaked a cheery
“How d’ye do?” and a courteous "Good-by!”
and many a stranger passed through the
gate wondering who had hailed him. More
than one poor and friendless patient, dis
charged after weeks of suffering, went out
into the busy streets of the city fearing with
him remembrances of a kind “Good-by,”
which followed him as he passed through the
“Crockie” was ever an intelligent and ob
serving bird. He took much interest in the
students as they passed and repassed his
perch, and the students manifested an equal
friendship for him. From time to time he
was instructed in the art of speech by them,
and mauy of the phrases which form his
vocabulary came from that source. And
thereby hangs a tale—a tale of fun for
“Crockie” ana the boys, but which wound
up with a sad loss to the bird.
how “crockie” lost an eye.
“Crockie Baldwin” looks out upon the
world through but one eye. His right orb
is sightless, and it has Iwn many a long
year since he has enjoyed the use of that
eye. There is a tradition which explains
the disfigurement after this manner: His
master, who had grown old iu liis service at
the hospital gate, grew bibacious ns the
years rolled on, and the result of his tippling
afforded much sport to the young medical
students. Often as tiler passed they twitted
the old man on his love for the bottle, and
now anil then ungracious comment was
passed in the shape of “the old man’s full
again.” “Crockie” took in the situation,
and, it would seem, silently made up
his mind to have a hand in the fun.
Oft repeated in his presence his readv in
telligence caught the phrase tho students
used, aud one day he stnrtled the old man
by croaking in almost human tones, “Old
man’s full again.” Surprise was not the
ably emotion which was excited in the old
man by this unlooked for assertion, and in
his anger he made at the bird, who fled
across the lawn. “Crockie” was caught and
in the rough handling he received liis ijiglit
eye was injured so that its sight was rumed.
Poor “Crockie” was effectually cured of his
desire to poke fun at the old man, and in his
subsequent life at the hospital gate he
fought shy of the students.
presented to the zoological society.
, Eight years ago, or thereabout, the old
gate-keeper died, and the bird fell into the
hands of a fancier. A life of vicissitude
was the lot of the bird for two years, and he
passed from hand to hand until he attracted
the attention of Mr. Cox, of Germantown.
Mr. Cox took a fancy to the bird, learned
his interesting history, bought him for SBO
and gave him to the Zoological Society. Six
years have been added to the many which
Lave passed over “Croekie’s” head since he
joined the feathered colony in the Gardens,
and he has amused and interested
thousands of visitors. He is a privi
leged character, and occupies a perch
of his own in the centre of the bird
house. A eage is an indignity from
which he is exempted, and the only restraint
placed upon him is a light chain which pro
vents his leaving his perch. There he sits
throughout the day, busying himself in at
tending to the many visitors, for most of
whom he has a word of greeting am 1 fare
well. When his keeper cpmes along he ven
tures upon a more extended conversation,
saying very plainly: “Had your breakfast?"
“Come to" supper,” and a number of other
phrases. Oue of “Croekie’s” chief enjoy
ments is a walk along the railing in front of
the cages in the bird house —a privilege oc
casionally granted by the keeper. Crawling
along from cage to cage the bird pauses be
fore each, and with a polite bow to his less
privileged mates behind the wires, he calls
out: “How d’ye do?” and as he moves away
he sings out "Good-by.”
“Crockie” knows how to laugh with an
almost human jollity, and hugely enjoys
the operation. He prefers, however, to
laugh alone, and if a stranger essay to join
him his mirth changes suddenly to wrath,
and a deafening and discordant screech ab
niptly changes the fun. It is a singular
fact that the other cockatoos are very jeal
ous of “Crockie,” and if they think he is re
ceiving too mueh attention they unite in a
series of such deafening yells tLat the visi
tors are glad to beat a hasty retreat.
Another of his favorite pastimes is play,
mg with the cat that forms one of the
happy family in the bird-house. When
visitors are few and far apart “Croctie”
begins to whistle and calls “Fuss, Puss,” in
a persuasive voice that generally brings out
the cat if it be within hearing distance. A
strong bond of friendship exists between
these two old inmates of the establishment.
Four score years weigh heavy upon man.
but “Crockie” appeal's not to feel the bur
den of his age. Although be has passed the
allotted years of man his limit is yet fifty
or sixty years in the future, so the natural -
ists say- Other generations may yet be
amused by “Crockie” Baldwin, as have
those past and present.
