J Of course every baseball crank in the
country knows that the National League
championship opens to-day. One of the
I good ieatures of the schedule has designed
that Anson and almost- all of his "globe
- trotters" will be in harness. Certainly the
4 old man of Chicatro could arrange ottier-
wise, but he couldn't safely put in a team
that would ignore the bovs wbolmomcttho
potentates ot cannibals. Christians Buddists,
' or any oilier Xind of religious believers.
Hanlon sisned yesterdav, so that local
patrons of the club can safely expect to sec
. him in center field. Ed is In (Treat shape, at
i least that is what he says. If practice goes
toward making a man perfect Hanlon ought to
be a verv unenor man to-day coinpired to his
new colleagues. He has been playing, or
training to play, ever since the cloe ol last
seaon. However, if he does get a little wild
i in the held and harmless at the bat, he mut
be tolerated. His partMemands an admiration
f that ongbt to last through many dull and dis
f appointing days. Ed Hanlon has made his
, mark by good and honest playing, and if he
-proves a f ailuie w ith us the loss will he greater
, ito lum than anybody who finds fault with
t AJT INSIDE TIP.
- A prominent member of the local team said
.yesterday that we may for certain expect
White here this week. If White comes it is
hard to understand why Howe should not
come, becausein a way of principle, what ap
plies to one applies to the other. Hanlon
a. states that what has been offered to Itowe has
been offered to White. Nothing more or
nothing less. If this is true, then m e can safe
t ly depend on the two players being here before
long. Of course there is the other probability:
They may not be here.
As things appear at present the two teams
to-day will be as follows

The above teams mean, at least, that there
may be expected a great game. The parade will
start at 1:45 from the Hotel Anderson. From
there it will proceed as published in yesterday's
thisk tve'li, wet.
The general opinion is that the local fellows
will win, and if tie local poolrooms had been
in existence the home talent would have sold
for S20 and the other fellows for S10. Of course
there may not be that much in it, but we are

New Tore. April 23. Manager Day, of the
New York club, and the thousands of baseball
enthusiasts who have been expecting to see the
only Giants again win the championship on the
polo grounds, were in despair this afternoon
when the news came that Governor Hill had
vetoed the polo grounds bUL Governor Hill
says that he is thoroughly in sympathy with
the objects of the bill, bnt he is compelled to
sacrifice his personal preferences to the prin
ciple which is at stake. The opening game of
the League series between tbe Giauu and the
Bostons to-morrow will be played in Jersey
As soon as the St. George grounds, on Staten
Island, are ready, the League games will be
played there. There is loud grumbling among
liaseball cranks at the idea of going to Staten
Island to witness their favorite sport.

There where three or four unoccupied seats
in the car, but "he stood for a moment, grip
in hand, near the door, and then walked to
a seat in which a young lady sat alone and
sat down beside her with an impudence that
astounded all other passengers. The girl
looked up at him and around tbe car,
and evidently realized the situation, for she
took pencil and tablet from her reticule
and1' made ready for him. After about
five minutes the man turned to her and ob
served: "Beg pardon if I am mistaken, bnt don't
you live at TJtica?"
She looked up iu a furtive way, and then
wrote on the tablet and handed him:
"lam deaf and dumb."

it; "that's too bad, too badl Duced pretty
girl to have such a misfortune. Well, I'm

window before I got on, and carried out the
plan to a doL Deaf and dumb, eh? first

He nodded his head to her to signify that
he understood, and he would have been glad
to chance seats if he could have done so
without loss ot dignity. As the train thun
dered on he perused the contents ot a couple
of newspapers, yawned awhile, and then
bought and finished a novel; and finally,
after a ride of four mortal hours, the
whistle blew, and he reached for his grip
with the remark:
"I'll be hanged if I ain't glad this stupid
ride-has come to an end at last."
"Ditto !" quietly replied the girl, as she
tnmed on him.
"You you I"he grasped as he stood
there looking down upon her with 12
kinds of emotion galloping over his counte

and dropped to the platform like a -man re

and leathers, "h known to the trade as
piano leather. American tanners years ago
discovered the secret of making Prussia
leather, with its peculiar pungent and last
ing odor; but that secret of tanning piano
leather is known only to a family of tanners
in Thuriagia, Germany. This leather has
but one use, the covering of piano keys. A
peculiar thing abont it is that the skins
from which it is tanned are produced en
tirely in America. It is a peculiar kind of
buckskin. The skinof the common red or
Virginia deer will not" mate the leather, a
species of the animal known as the gray
deer, and found only in this vicinity of the
great Northern lakes, alone furnishing the
"The German tanners have an agency in
Detroit which collects the skins of this deer
from the Indian and half-breed hunters,
who supply the market. The punters are
paid an average price of abont 20 cents a
pound for the green skins. When the skins
are returned to this country aspiano leather
they cost the piano manufacturers from 15
to 18 a pound. The world's supply of this
invaluable and necessary material is sup

who have six establishments in Germany,
the largest and best at Gera in Tfluringia."
' SHE WON'T DO IT AGAIN.
A Georgia Girl Cared of tbe Habit of Eat
ing Sappor in Bed.
At Americus lives a certain young lady
who will never eat much supper if a young
man eats with her on an invitation to do so,
but when she retires for the night she takes
a biscuit or piece of bread and munches it
after lying down. One night last week she
had a visitor and didn't eat. On retiring
she took a large number of sweet cakes,
and, when she ate enough, fell asleep. How
long she had slept no one knew. She awak
ened' the house screaming at a heart-breaking
rate, and the people thought she wa's
being murdered. In rushed a big brother
and. a married sister, the latter with a
lamp. The young woman was in bed yell

The brother ran and pulled'ofF the cover
ing when out rushed two or three rats, and
down fell pieces of the cake. The girl
fainted, but she told her sister he was
awakened by what she thought was a man

scampered over her. She was frightened
nearly into convulsion, and gave vent to
her terror in ear splitting Bcreams. She

A WONDERFUL LAKE.

One of the most picturesque and remark
able bodies of water in the world is Henry's
Lake in Idaho. It is situated on the dome

Eocky Monntains called Targee's Pass. It
has an area of 40 square miles, and all
around it rise snow-capped peaks, some of
them being the highest of the continent's
backbone. In the lake is a floating island
about 300 feet in diameter. It has for its
basis a mat of roots so dense that it sup
ports Large trees and a heavy growth of un
derbrush. These roots are covered with several feet
of rich soil. The surface is solid enough to
support the weight of a horse anywhere,
and. there are places where a house could be

lake, and it seldom remains 24 hours in the

Senators Sherman and Quay Once
More Meet on a Friendly Footing.
THE SPLIT SEEMS ABOUT MENDED.
Ohio's Senior Senator Says He Can't Get
Mad at the Impulsive Quay.
GEN. PALMER TO BE PUBLIC PRINTER.
The Friends of Donath Present His Claims to the
There are indications that Senators Sher
man and Quay have buried the hatchet. At
least, they have held a long conference or
two and taken a ride together, and Mr.
Sherman says he can't get mad at his col
league, who, he says, is apt to "fly off the
handle," despite his ordinarily shrewd
judgment. Ex-Postmaster Palmer, of Chi
cago, is said to be slated for Public Printer.
rSritCIAL TELEOBAM TO TOTt DtSPATCH.l
Washington, April 23. No fuel was
added to the Quay-Sherman imbroglio to
day, and the split between the two friends
looks as though it were iu a lair way to be
mended. Quay admits that he spoke some
what hastily, though he insists he was
right, and Sherman confesses that while Quay
acted injudiciously in going back on his
own noted instructions to his friend Beaver,
advising him not to talk, he had at the
same time some reason for his indignation.
"I shall take no further notice of the
matter," said" Senator Sherman to The
Dispatch correspondent, this evening.
"Had he been almost any other man, I
might have demanded a publio apology and
retraction, but I cannot get angry at Quay,
He is impulsive at times, notwithstanding
his ordinarily shrewd judgment, 'and I
know him so well I can forgive hint. He
misunderstood the situation, and-expressed
himself in accordance with the misunder
standing, and that is all that there is about
"It is rumored, Senator, that you had a
conference with Senator Quay, yesterday or
"Well, yes,I did meet the Senator yester.
day, and we talked the matter over in a
friendly way. I told Quay I had nothing
to do with bringing Hart out for the in
ternal revenue solicitorship, and that if the
Attorney General chose to appoint him it
would be impudent in me to interfere. But
the matter is at rest now, and the less it is
discussed the better."
The truth is. Senator Sherman came to
Chamberlain's to see Senator Quay, yester
day afternoon, and talked with him for two
hours, and then they went driving together
for another hour, and the probabilities are
the wounds of both were well salved over
by the time of their return.
Senator Quay, Mrs. Quay and Mr. Bich
ard Quay left this evening for their Beaver
home, where the Senator will remain for
some days. Mr. Prank Gilkeson, one of the
figures of the Quay-Sherman "fight, arrived
in the city this evening just in time to miss
Quay, who bad started for home. He said
he had come dbwn merely to take a look
around, and didn't expect to upset the ap
pointment of Hart, if that gentleman had
really been fixed upon as Solicitor for the
Bureau of Internal Bevenue. Quay has

PALMER FOR PUBLIC PRINTER.
Intimations That the President Has Made
Up His mind at Last.
rtrECIAI. TELEGEAM TO Till mSPATCIT.I
'Washington, April 23. It comes very
straight irom the White House this evening
that the President has decided to appoint
General Frank Palmer, late Postmaster of
Chicago, to the position of Public Printer.
If this be true, some other place will doubt
less be found for Meredith, also of Chicago,
who had been promised the place of Chief
of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing,
as two Chicago men would hardly be ap
pointed to two such desirable places so
nearly similar in character.
General Palmer is very highly spoken of
by all who know him as eminently well
fitted for the place. If he be appointed he
will lie known as the favorite of Private
Secretary Halford, as the latter has been
urging Palmer for the place on account of
their old associations on the staff of the
Chicago 7nter Ocean.
Editor Wallace, of the Chester Times,
partner of August Donath, who is backed
for public printer by nearly the whole State
of Pennsylvania, called on the President
to-day and made a strong presentation ot
the business and technical abilities of
Donath. The President listened well, bnt
said nothing, as nsnal.
MEDICINE IN INDIA.
Tbo Doctrine of Physics Alleged to Have
Been Promulgated by Brahmins.
New Tort Times. 3
Dr. Hopkins declared that the Brahmins
were the originators of the practice of medi
cine, and that they carried it on succesfully
even before casts wereintroduced into India.
After the introduction of the system of casts,
the practice of medicine was absorbed by the
priesthood. The supremacy of the Budd
hists resulted in a general distribution of
the Hindu knowledge of medicine. It was
particularly imparted to Arabia,and thence
to Egypt and Greece. The advent of the
Mohammedans in India, however, not only
checked, but almost destroyed, the general
education in medicine, ior the Mohamme
dans substituted superstition ior science.
The general medical ideas of the Hindus,
said the lecturer, consisted of a belief that
an elixir of life could be discovered, and
tbat all diseases were curable if Brahma
would only reveal the remedy. The an
cient Hindu treatment contained much that
was absurd, but, on the other hand, it also
contained much thatthe light of modern sci
ence had shown to be correct. One peculiar
ity of the Hindu medical system was that it
included hospitals for both men and beasts.
Of these, the hospitals ior men have disap
peared, but those for beasts survive. One
of the latter is situated near Surat, and is
over 2,000 years old. At this institution
ailing domestic animals are still received
and cared for. These hospitals for beasts
are maintained according to the edicts of
Asoka, an ancient ruler, which are cnt on
the rocks near Gazaret.

A Kansas Man Has a Unique Device for
Gelling Up In tbe World.
There is a man in Kafteas who expects to
rise very high in the world and whose am

frame resembling a folding camp-bed with an
awning over it, and having infront, wheel

ship for navigating space. The aeronaut
lies, face downward, between the canvas
covered side-rails so that his hands may
conveniently reach two transverse cranked
shafts, thus rotating a propeller-wheel
journaled at the front of the machine.
The wind currents are expected to assist
the lifting and propelling power of the flying-machine.

years, causing great distress and annovance to
herself and family. There was such a" contrac

her limb, and although she wore the usual
high beel shoe, it was Impossible for her to
bring her beel to the ground when walking.
After suffering on in this condition for four
teen years, she consnlted one of the surgeons
of the Polypathic Snreical Institute, and was
convinced that it was not too late to be
cured. An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it is
now three years since the operation, her cure
has remained permanent. She walks perfectly,

An AeeideSit Thst Befel a Lady on Broadway,
and The Lesson II Teaches Every Man and
s A well-known lady who lives In Harlem,, was
shopping on Broadway one day recently when
a small insect flew in her month. 8be instantly
coughed and so expelled it, but not until tbe
Eoisonons creature bad stung the surface of
er throat. The poor lady's throat began to
swell and it required the skill of several; physi
cians to save her life. Tbe same tbinzthat
occurred to this lady is occurring every minute
to most people. Hundreds of poisonous Insects
called "germs" are being drawn into the body
with every breath. These small creatures at
once begin to live upon the body and cause
what is known as disease. They must be driven
out. How much better it Is though to kill these
poisonous germs, as soon as they come. And
yet there is only one thing will do this and
that is pure whiskey. Prof. Austin Flint of
Bellevue College, sajs: "The judicious use of
alcoholic stimulants is one of the strikln'
characteristics of progress in tbe practice of
medicine during tbe last half century." Prof.
Henry Mott, Ph. D , F. C. 8.. savs: "By a most
careful analysis I have found Daffy's Pure
Malt whiskey free from adulterations orforeign
substances, anJ it deserves to meet with great
success." Tbe well-known Dr. R. W.Hutchinson
of New York, says- "I highly recommend
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskev and prescribe it
extensively in my practice.' Rev. B. MilK of
Princeton. Iowa, says: "1 have used Duffy's
Pure Malt Whiskey with great benefit to my
wife, who is a confirmed invalid. I know from
experience it is a pure and most valuable
medicine. I am also nsing it in tbe case of my
son. who is threatened with consumption. I am
a Presbyterian clergyman and a doctor qt
divinity, due i am not airam to recommend
Duffy's Malt "Whiskey as tbe purest and most
efficient tonicthatlkuow of, andmy experience
is a large one. '

Marvelous Cures Made Without
It is seldom necessary to comment upon facts
or upon tbat which is truly wonderful, yet one
cannot refrain from expressing profound ad
miration for the skill which Is raising so many
sufferers from beds of pain and distress and
restores them to health and vigor. It scarcely
seems credible that such marvelous results
can be obtained by the laying on of hands, and
we should have been loth to believe there
wonderful reports of Dr. Smith's re
markable cures only for the fact that
we have been an eye witness, and see
ing, you know, is believing. What we seo
with our own eyes we are bound to believe.
The following cases treated by the Drs. Smith
at tbe Gra;d Opera House and in their parlors, ,
at No. 502 jn avenue, speak for themselves.
Mr. John Foley, who resides at Millvale, was
taken with a terrible pain in his right shoulder
npward of five months ago. The attack came
on suddenly, like a shock of paralysis. The
arm became useless in a few moments' time.
He could not use tbe hand or move a finger.
A short time after tbe attack he bezan to ex
perience pain in the shoulder. The pain in
creased in severity for a number of
days, when it was discovered that there
was an accumulation of pus In- the)
shoulder joint. Mr. Foley applied to a doctor,
who onened the shoulder with tbe knife.
Large quantities of pus was discharged at the
time and a fistula formed, which continued to
discbarge a thin, acrid pus. Iu this helpless
and hopeless condition he applied to the Drs.
Smith, the magnetic physicians, at 502 Penn
avenue, ana was cured perfectly. He bas re
gained tbe nse of his hand and arm. and is now
well and happy. John McDonald suffered ten
years from sciatica. Mr. McDonald is an old
gentleman, and was helpless for several years.
He was cured on tbe public stage by one mag
netic treatment. Scores of cases of loss of
voice have been enred on tbe public
stage by one treatment, as well as
cases of rheumatism, neuralgia, catarrh,
asthma, bronchitis, and. in fact, all kinds of
disease. All that the doctor does is to apply
his hands to tbe affected parts for a few mo
ments, when the cure is completed.
Dr. Smith cures all forms of female com
plaints without the use of instruments or ex
posure of the person. He also cures pile3 and
runture without the use of tbe knife, or pain
to' the patient, nor detention from business.
He treats and enres cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 502 Penn

after all other means fail. He treats every
form of disease known to humanity. Goto
