Ex-governor Patlisori and Kx-Sccro-Inry of tho Commonwealth Stcnger havo formcJ a law partnership, and openid an ollico In Philadelphia. Sheriff Rowan of Philadelphia is hopeleBsly insane, and legal Btcps aro contemplated to romovo him from oftlcc. A thrco year-old son of Governor Reaver died last Satnrdav nicht of diphtheria, and was burled on Sunday. Ho was tho pet of tho household, and Mrs. isoaver lias been prostrated by tho blow. A little son of Paulson's died of tho same discaso soon after 1 altison s inauguration. Tho Harrisburc Patriot of lha 22d says that a Houso bill has been report ed favorably, from committeo provid ing tor an additional judge in Uolutn bia county. This is a mistake. No such bill has been introduced, and if it bad beon It would never havo cone through tho committee, as it would be clearly unconstitutional on several grounds. Superintendent Grimes' reply to a writer in tho Sentinet of last week who insinuates that tho surplus funds Ye oeived at tho county institutes has been appropriated by Mr. Grimes to his own use, seems to bo clear and sat isfactory, and ought to put a stop to tho annual repetition of this charge. Ho has thus far publicly accounted for uii luuuey id ma nanus. Legislative Committees.

WABHIHGTON LETTEB (From our Itepilar correspondent. Washington. D. 0., Jan. 24, 1887. The present Congress has redeemed its reputation during the first half of this its Inst session, and it will now go down to history honored, oven if it should do nothing moro for tho remain der of its life. The enactment ot tho Presidential Succession bill has been followed by that regulating tho Electo ral Count, and bo a double peril is re moved. It is now pretty certain that President Cleveland a successors will bo ciecteu nnu inaugurated without any resort to partisan war a calamity that hitherto hus been averted only by tho toicranco ot mo people. But this is not half of what has been accomplished. The Iutor-stato Com merce bill, 'for hotter or for worse,' has gono through both houses, and only awaits tho Executive signaturo to be- oomo a law. Then a ngcrous Ann- Polygamy measure has at last been passed; an investigation of the Pacific Katlroad crookedness has been ordered aud the old Mexican veterans aro about to bo pensioned, At tho cud of this Congress, tho terms of one-third of the wholo num ber of United Stales Senators expire. Wiuio somo ot them havo been re elected, others will be succeeded by now mou. It is noticeable that Feder al soldiers aro getting scarce in the senate, iticro aro only seven men who fought on tho Union side during thu war, while thero aro sixteen whoso names cm on tho muster rolls of the Confederacy. It is probable that only three of the ox Federal wjl be left ' when tho Senato is called to ordor nt tho commencement of tho next session. These will bo Senators Hawlcy, Man- dorson and Plumb. Fifteen Republi can Sonators will bo sworn in on tho 4th of ncxtMaroh, but four of thim woro tho Confederate gray. This will leave tho Senato with twenty ex-Con-fedciatcs, and threo soldiers of tho Union. In regard to Lieutenant Emory's Arctic trip, Secretary Whitney has ex pressed himself in no uncertain lan guage Referring to tho report that tho Lieut, wanted to go North in tho "Thotis," ho said the United States had Bomethlng else to do with its vessels, naval officers and sailors hesides sond ing them off on Arctic expeditions. ..i" in . i. ,o,i' ,.t!n,,...i "1 Will UUl BilJ, UUITV.V., the Si'cretarv. "that thero will bo no such expedition under tho present Ad ministration, but certainly not wnii my consent. No ono will recelvo orders from me for such a trip in consonance with my wishes. Tho President is in good health again, but ho is careful to favor his rheumatic kneo on all occasions. He felt compelled to decline to roviow tho order of thu Mystiu Shrino which visit ed tho city during tho week, for fear of tho damp air to which ho would bo exposed, nnd ho could not go to tho top of tho Washington Monument with Mrs. Cleveland and Mr. Corcoran ac cording to appointment. This trip to tho clouds had beeu arranged for three o'clock, and at that hour everything was in readiness for tho distinguished visitors. The interior of the Monu ment was electrically lighted from top to bottom, a firo was built in tho boiler house, steam was generated, and sover al preliminary trips of tho elevator hud been made to see that everything was in completo running order for tho ex pected visit of the President Mrs. Cleveland was on time, and announc ing a disappointed tono that tho Presi dent was not able to come, graceful ly tendered her arm to the vouprablo Mr. Corcoran, and couducted him to tho elevator. Tho air insido the Monu ment is damp and chilly, and when the marble door swung open a blast rushed cut that almost took tho breath of those entering. The visitors looked down upon tho magnificent pauorama at the 500 foot level. Mrs. Cleveland took especial interest in tho White House, and tried hard to recognize it familiar figuro at tho library window. To morrow the prominent advocates of woman suffragti will begin their nineteenth annual conveulion in this city, and to-morrow Senator Blair will mako an effort to have the Woman Suffrage amendment to tho Constitu tion discussed in thu Seriate. Miss Su sau B. Anthony, who has been hero for SDmo weeks, is as grim and hopeful and resolute as ever, wearing her defeats of tho last forty years as cheirlully as other veterans wear plumes of victory. Sho doesn't thiuk at allt well of press reporters, however. Slie says, where women aro concerned, at least, tho re porters are sure to seizo upon some triviality and ring its changes to the exclusion of business. She mentioned that when she spoko in Chicago last week, a dog that came with n newspa per reporter ran across the stago aud springing up laid his noso on her shoul der. "I prophesied to tho audience then," continued she, "that that dog would figure in the press reports more conspicuously than anything that was said or done, and so he did." Miss Anthony does not change much as tho years go by. Tho opening of Bomo new avenuo for the employment of women, or some new gleam of Hope from a Stato Legislature always comes opportunely to offset the effects of years and labors that might otherwise bo adding new wrinkles to her brow. AN 0PN LETTEB. "Teachers' inquiry in the Sentinel of last week has called forth the fol lowing letter from the County Super intendent. Mit. KlUCKBAUM. Dear Sir: 1 notieed an article in your last issue in refer ence to the finances of tho County In stitute. Tho object of tho writer was not informati n, as tho statements must show that he knows that tho re ceipts and expenditures of tho Ins-ti tutu havo been carefully examined and approved by a committeo of teachers. I write, thoreforr, not for his informa tion, but for the benefit of those who have not given tho subject much thought, consequently may not bo fully ticquaintid with the law and tho facts in tho case. Before Ur. Higbeo's lec ture Monday evening Deo. 31, 1883, I publicly stated that the evening en tertainments were not required by law as a part of tho Institute, that they were gotten np by inytelf for the en tertainment and profit of the teachers and the publio ; that I was personally responsible for all of tho expense and if there was a deficit I must pay it, but the surplus money I would use for the benefit of the Institute. In many of the counties of thu stato tho Superintendents keep tho surplus monoy, which they havo a legal right to do. I know of no other Superin tendent who under similar circumstan ces uses it for tho benefit of tho In stitute. Thero is not a single town in this county which has a regular courso of lectures. It matters not ho a- much teachers may desire to attend lectures they cannot often do so in this county. Tho expenses of the, teaohers it ho at tend the Institute, so far as board, traveling, etc., are concerned aro tho samo whether they atttend the evening lectures or not. I have put forth all possible efforts to give tho teachers and the publio good Iiihtitutos and evening entertainments. The Institut es and evoiiug entertainments of Col umbia oounty now rank among the best of the state. An opportunity was given the teachers to enroll, hut they were not asked to do so. Tho enroll, ment card gave them not only reserved seats for the courso of lectures for fifty cents (ono dollar less than tho popular prio) but an opportunity to select a desirable seat threo hours in advance of the publio. The officers of tho Instituto have not been extrava- gantly compensated, hut they have re n ,i, ... !... i I wv.tvu uii iiiuv nua (iiuiijisfu tuem prior to their acceptauco of tho honors conferred. It might not bo uninteresting to givo a short sketch of tho hittory of our Institutes, but as this article is al ready lengthy, I will ouy ey that tho receipts from tho evening entertain- menis oi my nrst instituto wero only $00.75. At that time tho peoplo of liloomsburg did not patronize lectuios as thoy now do. That winter threo of the most active attorneys in tho town of Illoomshurg govo the citizens it courso of lectures. Thoy canvassed tho town and worked it up as I never knew any other committee to do and yet thoy did not meet expenses. I havo been in correspondence with most of tho lecture bureaus. I read carefully tho circulars and testimonials of each, and wheneter a lectin er that I think will please tho patrons of our Iuititute, speaks at Wilkeabarre, Dan- villc, Shamokin, or nt any of tho towns not too far distant, I go to hoar him, and, if ploascd immediately cngago him. In this way I havo secured lecturers that havo not only pleased tho patrons of the Institute, but added largely to Its funds. Tho surplus on hand, after dofraying nil tho expenses of every In stlluti', I applied to tho expenses of tho next one. During no vear of my Snperintendonoy until 1884, hnd I moro than $20 on hand. After tho Institute of that year I had $120.87 surplus. After all tho expenses of the Institute of 1885 hud been paid, I had $223.35 on hand, and tills sum I used in do fraying thn expenses of tho lato Insti tute. Had I not had this sum on hand of last year, I should havo been out of pocket moro than ono hundred dollars after pa) ing tho expenses of tho Insti tute of 188G. It will thus bo seen that I havo appropriated no monoy received from any of tho Institutes, to my per- snnal use, and I challenge any ono to show anything to tho contrary, it tho superintendent has no surplus money from the county treasury, enrollment fees, or evening lecture", nnd does not realizo Biifliciont from theso sources to defray the expenses of any Institute, ho is obliged to pay the balance out of his own pocket. This, it seems to me, should bhow tho reasonableness of keeping an unexpended balanco on hand whenever it is possible to do so. Should I havo any such money in my hands at the expiration of my offi cial term, I shall in accordanco with my publio. statement of 1883, hand it to my successor, to bo applied to tho expenses of his Institutes. A state ment of tho receipts nnd expenditures of all tho Institutes held by me can bo seen at my office. J. S. Giumes, County Superintendent. A Great Victory A Torriblo Caso of Scrofula Cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla " In tho winter ot 1879 I was attacked with Scrofula In ono ot the most aggravating forms. At one time I had no less than thirteen Urge kbscesses over and around my neckand throat, continually exuding an offensive mass of bloody matter disgusting to behold, and almost Intolerable to endure. It Is Impossible to fully describe my sufferings, as the cut was complicated with Chronic Catarrh. After thrco years ot misery, having been treated by three physicians, I was worso than ever. Finally, on the recommendation of W. J. Huntley, druggist, of Lockport, I was Induced to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. And now, alter having taken twelve bottles, within the last twelvo months, the scrofulous eruptions havo entirely ceased, and the abscesses havo all disappeared, except the unsightly scars, which aro dally becoming" smaller by degrees, and beautifully less.' I do not know what It may havo dono for others, but I do know that In my case, Hood's Sarsaparilla has proved an effective specific Indeed. As an evidence ot my gratitude I send these facts unsolicited, and I am ready to verify tho authenticity ot this cure, by personal correspondence with any ono who doubts It."

Sleep is banished, and great prostration follows. This disease is also attended with Hoarseness', and some times Loss of Voice. It Is llablo to be come chronic, involve tho lungs, and terminate fatally. Ayer's Cherry Pecto ral affords speedy relief and cure In coses ot Bronchitis. It controls tho disposition to cough, and Induces retreshlng sleep. I havo been a practising physician for twenty-four years, and, for the past ',welve, have suffered from annual at tacks of Bronchitis. Alter exhausting all the usual remedies Without Relief, I tried Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It effected a speedy cure. Q. Stoveall, M. I)., Carrollton, Miss. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral Is docidedly the best remedy, within my knowledge, for chronic Bronchitis, and all lung diseases. M. A. Rust, M. D., South Paris, Me. I was attacked, last winter, with a severe Cold, which grew worse and settled on my Lungs, lly night sweats I was reduced almost to askeieton. My Cough was incessant, and I frequently )it blood. My physician told me to give up business, or I would not live a month. After taking various remedies without relief, I was finally Cured By Using two bottles of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. I am now in perfect health, and able to resume business, after having been pro nounced incurable with Consumption. S. P. Henderson, Saulsburgh, Penn. For years I was in n decline. I had weak lungs, and suffered from Bron chitis and Catarrh. Ayer's Cherry Pec toral restored me to health, and I have been for a long time comparatively vig orous. In case of a sudden cold I always resort to the Pectoral, and find speedy relief. Edward E. Curtis, Rutland, Vt. Two years ago I suffered from a severs Bronchitis. The physician attending mo became fearful that the disease would terminate in Pneumonia. After trying various medicines, without benefit, he prescribed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, which relieved me at once. I continued to take this medicine, and was cured. Ernest Colton, Logansport, ind.
