schism between “low” country and “up”

THE SURGEONS PUZZLED.
Strange Case of a Blind Girl in Villa
Jamestown, N. Y., Oct. 24,—Physicians
of all schools in this vicinity are puzzled by
a case in the extreme northwest corner of
the town of Villauova, in Chautauqua
county. Charles Gibson and his family oc
cupy an old log house, and from the sur
rounding twenty acres they draw their
main support. The family consists of Mr.
amt Mrs. Gibson and three children, one a
boy. The wonderful object in this humbie
home is the eldost daughter, a very pretty
girl of 16, who at her birth was noticed to
have a peculiar expression about her
eyes, but it was attributed to infancy,
aud no special attention was paid to it, but
when the time of life came that she should
notice motions the sad discovery was made
that she was blind. Mr. Gibsonjconsu.ted the
best surgical skill in ills reach, but obtained
no encouragement that Ins child would ever
have her sight. But as the girl grew older
it was discovered that artificial light quick
ened her vision, and as the years rolled by
she made evident the fact that the light
from an oil lamp enabled her to see per
fectly, while after sunrise she was as blind
as a bat, so that she came to live in the
night and slept during the day. Now the
girl, grown to a maiden, is the wonder of
all the country around, and a number of
well known opticians have visited her, but
without solving the strange phenomenon.
She haj a quick and active mind, and her
memory is remarkable. All branches of
needlework she has mastered, and every
book within tier reach Ims been so well read
that she is better informed than the
majority of young people. As if iu com
pensation for her misfortune, her faculties
appear to be more sensitive than usual,’and
in every attribute of womanhood she is
superior to her station in life. The secret
of it all remains unsolved, and "while the
lamp holds out to buru” she gives promise
of continuing a puzzle to the medical tra
ternit.y. Despite her peculiarity she is
sunny in temperament, and enjoys, life as
well as her more favored sister and brother,
while excelling l>oth in all tile various ac
coinplisbmeuts to which any of them could

Detroit Again Downs the Association
Chicago, Oct. 35.—1n the game to-day
St. Louis made twice as many hits, and one
error more than their opponents, but their
hits were so scattered that they did
not couut, and Richardson’s three bagger,
and Thompson’s single, both came in the
same inning, and between them two men got
bases on errors, so there were three runs for
Detroit in one lump. Ganzel made another
one in the fifth inning, got to first on Rob
inson’s error, and got around by virtue of a
passed ball and an error by Latham. The
day was so cold that ice did not melt when
the sun was shining, and only about 400 pe

i REPUBLICAN THIEVERY EXPOSED.
About $500,L00 Recovered from Dis
Frodi the .Yen’ York VYorUi.
Washington, Oct. 23. —Wiiiium D. Huy
nhs, of the First Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral’s office, said in an interview to-day:
“There is very little competition in fourth
l class ]x>-t offices now. Of about 53,000 such
, offices, about 35,000 have changed hands
; under the present administration.” Mr.
Haynie added thut, generally speaking, the
most desirable offices had changed hands,
but that there were still quite a number of
paying offices in the hands of tho old incum
bents. It is a remarkable fact that many
fourth class post offices which used to puy
the postmasters from SSO to 8)00 a quarter,
do not pay the present incumbent more than
one-tenth of that revenue. The reason is
j that the new Democratic postmasters
! charge, apparently, just what their business
j entities them to, w hereas their Republican
predecessors charged just as much as they
; thought they could get from tho profligate
| Republican administration.
‘‘The department,” said Chief Clerk Ray,
“has very frequently to send out an in
spector to see what is the reason for the seri
ous tailing off in the postal business, as in
dicated by reduced salaries earned by the
new postmasters A postmaster now at the
end of the quarter claims only $5 or $6 as
the amount due him on the business of his
office for the three months. The books
show that his predecessor was i:i the habit
of making S7O or SBU every quarter. The
insjiector investigates and finds that there
has been no apparent falling off in business.
The office is not boycotted; fully as many
people patronize it as formerly, and they
send as much mail matter us they had lieen
accustomed to send.
“The explanation is that while the Re
publican postmaster lmd only done $5 or $0
worth of business, lie represented that he
had done ten times as much, and claimed
accordingly. The department has practic
ally had to take tho word of the postmaster.
At least it has generally done so. The
marked difference between the large
'■barges made by the postmasters of the o: l
regime and the small charges made by their
Democratic successors, who didn’t know
how to steal, suggested to the Democratic
administration that there appeared to be
something wrong and that on investigation
“The investigation has proved that the
Republican postmasters have been charging
away out, of all proportion to the business
done. The charge has been brought homo
to a large number of them, and has been
brought home so thoroughly that generally
the delinquent readily returned to t,iie gov
ernment what he had wrongfully drawn in
years past, and whenever the delinquent
official has tailed to settle, the bondsmen
have generally come to the front with
alacrity. In this way the Administration
has already recovered about 8500,000 from
Republican fourth-class postmasters, who
had lieen in tlie habit of drawing for a big
ger business than they really transacted.”
Sam Jones’ Good Advice.
Hate no one. It is not worth while.
Your life is not long enough to make it i>ay
to cherish ill will or hard thought toward
anyone. What if this man has cheated
you or that woman has played false I What
if this friend has forsaken you in a time of
need, or that one having won your utmost
confidence, your warmest love, has con
cluded that he prefers to reconsider and
treat you as a stranger! Let it pass. What
difference does it make to you in a few
years when you go to the undiscovered
THE SYLVIA’S COTTON.
Where It Was From—That Box of
Editor Morning News: Of the Sylvia’s
cotton you say “the cotton was not loaded
from lighters, and hence had not been ex
posed to sparks. It was loaded directly
from the press.”
The Sylvia had on board at time of fire
about 4,100 bales of cotton. Received from
city press 2.358 bales. Received the remain
der from lighters, drays and Savannah,
Florida and Western railway cars landed at
Gordon’s wharf, and then trucked by hand
“The matches found” were a box of ex
ploded matches, as harmless as the same
sized box of toothpicks.
The Naples did not receive a single bale
of cotton compressed by City Press.
The Resolute only received 341 bales of
cotton compressed by City Press.
[We are informed that no cotton from
lighters had been received by the vessel for
at least five days before the fire.]
Consumption, Scrofula, General Debil

great value. Please read the following: “I

Thos. D. Crump’s Views on Fairness.
A Journal reporter called on Mr. Thos.
D. Crump and said. "1 understand that you
drew a prize in the Louisiana State Lottery
drawing of the 9th ult. r “I did.” "What
was your ticket?” “29,146.” “Did it repre
sent the whole, or a part of tho prize?” “A
part—one tenth of the second capital.”
“What amount?” “$5,009.” “Did you re
ceive the full amount the ticket repre
sented?” “I received tho fall amount eight
days after the ticket had drawn.” “How
did you collect the money ?” “Our Jones
burg (Mo.) Bank collected it through the
Laclede Rank of St. Louis, and paid it to
tome.” I consider that the business of the
Louisiana State Lottery is conducted fairly,
without partiality or " favor.” —Jonesbury

A Plague for 25 Years, But
Cured by the Use of
Prickly asii, Poke root, Potassium
Dear Sir— ln 1801 I broke out with an
attack of Poison (>ak. Whether or not if
came back on me during the next three
or four years 1 do not remember, but
from about 1865 to 1885 1 suffered most
severely from repeated attacks of this
eruption. The use of some external
remedies gave a relief—'t was only tem
porary— till n iSV J I found that lodide
of Potassium a id Syrup of Sarsaparilla
benefited me not a little. However, even
then I was not cured, for from 1882 to
1885 the attacks were more severe, pro
longed and frequent than ever, coming
upon me as many as four, and even five
times timing the year. In the spring of
1885 1 took a course of P. P. P., and
from t at time I have been free from
eruptions of this poison. Only once,
early in this month, a few bumps ap
peared on my ivr, s. bill dried up in a
day or two, being the dying throes, as it
were, of this horrid and loathsome dis
ease. After being plagued for about
twenty-five years with Poison Oak I con
sider myself cured, and by the use o'
about one bottle of P. P. P.
