EVANSVILLE, lud., March 10.—Jose
phine Rynian, a fair-haired, blue-eyed
young woman, is just recovering from
a remarkable illness at the home of iher
sister, Mrs. Brown, in this place. Her
parents died some years ago, and Jose
phine went to work in St. James, a
little village near here. One Saturday
night last winter she went to singing
school. She had not been in her seat
long 1 when she felt u very strange sen
sation about the head, accompanied by
pains in the back. She arose to her
feet, as if to start out of church, when
she fell in a dead faint, and was carried
home. Her friends at first thought
that the attack was but a mere fainting
spell, and the usual restoratives were
applied, but the girl continued to lie as it
dead. Sunday came and went and
still there was no change. The body
became colder and colder, the eyes
were open and staring, the lips were
apart, there was no perceptible pulse,
and every indication pointed to death.
Physicians pronounced life extinct.
The priest was sent for to administer
tho last rites, and the weeping sisters
and friends of the family prepared to
bid Josephine the last farewell. The
coffin was ordered, busy fingers began
to prepare the white clothes in which
to bury the corpse, and in fact, every
preparation was made for the final
Thus passed Monday. On the
evening of that day there was a slight
change in the appearance of the body,
which gave the startled watchers a
faint hope that the girl lay in a trance,
and that this was but death's counter
feit. The body lay on its back, with
arms folded, just as the attendants had
placed it. There was not the least
perceptible breathing; the eyes still
had that stony unmeaning gaze ; the
face was pallid as white marble : but
theiciness of real death was wanting.
The feet and limbs were not warm,
but they did not haye that chilly touch
that is a sure accompaniment of actual
dissolution. There was sufficient
doubt in the minds of those in attend
ance to warrant caution, and so anoth
er day and night passed. On Wed
nesday, or the fourth day after the girl
was first stricken down, the priest was
again sent for. After critical examin
ing the case and consulting with the
physician he said: 'lt is a trance. She
may come to herself, bnt it will be but
momentary. When she relapses all
will be over. She cant live.' Accord
ingly the funeral was set for the next
day. Imagine the feelings of horror
which possessed this girl when it is
known that she was cognizant of every
word that was spoken ia that room,
and could see the forms of her friends
and watchers about her couch. Her
terrible situation is best told by her
self. She said to me yesterday :
'Oh, sir, it was horrible. As I lay
here on my back, stretched out on the
boards, with my arms crossed and feet
tied together, with lighted candles about
my head, and could see my sisters and
neighbors come and peer into my face,
it was awful. I heard every word
spoken. My body, limbs, and arms
were as cold as ice. I thought of the
agony of being buried alive, of being
nailed in a coffin and lowered into the
ground, I tried to make some noise,
or move just a little, to let them know
I was alive, but it was impossible. I
saw my sisters como in one by one
and look into iny face. 'Poor Josie,
she's gone.' Their tears dropped on
my hair, and their kisses were warm
to my lips. As they turned to leave
me, it seemed as if I must make an ef
fort to attract their attention, if only
by moving my eyelids. But I couldn : t
move a muscla. The priest came in,
and felt my arms and wrists. He
shook his head. Then ho placed his
ear to my heart. It was no use. He
could not hear it beat. After saying a
short prayer for the repose of my soul
he turned and left me, and my agony
and horror were redoubled. 'Will no
one find out that I live?' I said to my
self- 'Must Ibe buried only to wake
when it is to late?' Must I come back
to life when they put me in the vault,
and all of the people have gone away,
only to die of fright and horror and
suffocation ?' The thought was mad
ness ! Why doesn't the doctor do
something to bring me to myself? I
am not dead! It was no use. There
I lay thinking and listening to every
word that was said. I could hear a
woman giving directions as to the
making of the shroud. I heard the
time set for the funeral and all. I
could see every one who came to look
at me. I tried to look conscious and
let them know that I understood it all,
but it was impossible. It was a won
der I did not die of fright and agony.
I often think that I would sooner die,
a thousand times sooner, than go
through that experience again.
'Finally, when all was ready, when
the shroud was finished, aud all had
left the room but two or three,
someone said: Ain't you going to
cut her hair oil'? My hair was done
up in braids and fell down my
back. 'Yes.' said my sister, we'll cut
it off now. Then they got the scissors
and came up to me. While one of
them took hold of my head and turned
it to one side, the one with the scis
sors cutting. I could fell
the cold steel on my neck. I realized
that this was about the last thing
they'll do before putting me in the cof
fin. The woman began to clip, and in
a second or two one long braid was
taken off and laid aside. My head was
then turned the other way to allow
them to get at the other braid but this
WAS not touched. Thank God ! some
thing in my condition or some move
ment, I don't know what it was, caus
ed my sister to scream, and I was
saved. The scissors dropped to the
floor with a loud noise, the woman
jumped back nearly scared to death,
and 1 sat up. You should have seen
that house a little while after that. I
thought every body had gone crazy.
'Venie's alive !' 'Ycnie's alive !' The
•vhole neighborhood came rushing in
as soon as they heard of it, and fur
several days there was nothing talked
about but inc. My folks thought 1
didn't know what had been going on.
Little they thought that every word
I spoken in that room was heard and un
i derstood by :ne. They tried to keep
I every body from referring to the fact
that the shroud was bought, the coffin
ordered, and the fuueral arranged.
They made au excuse, too, for part of
my hair being cut off. They told me
the reason of it was that a plaster had
been put on the back of my neck, and
my hair got so tangled in it that it had
to be cut away. I didn't say anything.
One day my little brother said to me
'Venie, you was goin' to be buried
last Thursday, aad they cut your hair
off. He never imagined that I knew
more about that than he did. The
recollection of those terrible days and
nights will never leave me. 1 pray to
God that 1 may never be called upon
to pass through it again. 1 would
rather die.'— Cincinnati Enquirer.
I don't think it will be many years
before coal ashes will cease to be a nui
sance by being thrown out in back
yards and alleys and in the streets, to
the auuoyance of all citizens who de
light in having their surroundings neat
aud tidy ; but, on the contrary, it will
bo sought after by farmers aud garden
ers, so much so that I wouldn't wonder
if people would even be offered a few
cents per bushel for saving it.
There is one thing certain ; it is a
benefit to clayed or heavy land in
more ways than one, and it has been
tried around peach trees, currant bush
es, quinces, plums, &c., it has proved
to be of considerable value—some
claiming that since they have used it
around the roots and close up to the
bodies of such trees as are subject to
the attacks of borers and other pests,
they have had but little trouble in that
respect, and think it will pay to fetch
it from the towns within the range of
five or six miles.
Again : it will pay on grass land if
spread broad-cast, far more than what
it will cost to drain it, and I am ot the
opinion that it will pay largely if sifted
and spread among the strawberry
plants, as the white ashes found among
it has something of the same power to
retain moisture as land plaster.
Now, if I were going to use it on a
large scale, I should sift all the cinders
out of that I used on light or up land,
but should use cinders and all together
on clayey or heavy, wettish land, be
cause that would have a tendency to
soak moisture and make the land more
pliable, and easier worked.
My brother once tried sifted coal
ashes on some gooseberry bushes that
were affected with mildew, with good
results. If t remember rightly he appli
ed it when the dew was on tho bushes,
and the mildew disappeared at once.
I suppose this was due to the amount
of sulphur that is t) be found in coal
ashes. I have heard of others using It
with like results on and around grape
vines that were affected with mildew
aud rot.
Friends, let us try it and mark re
sults. It won't cost anything, and
may be it will bring out some new
ideas that will be worth something.
There is another thing that may be
rightly termed a nuisance—especially
in the"cities and small towns, viz , old
tin cans; and yet they can be put to
good account and made to pay by
burying them around fruit trees and
grape vines. Now just try this the
coming spring when you plant out
your peach trees. To every tree you
plant take a few old cans and batter
them up flat so they won't take up so
much room, and when you put the
roots of your tree in the hole put in a
little soil, then a few old cans, and fill
up and tramp down rather solid. Tho
cans will soon rust all away and the
rust will be taken up into the sap and
be thrown out into the leaves and fruit.
Such trees will always be found to be
healthy, and the leaves will be of a
beautiful glossy green, and even the
fruit on that tree will have a brighter
I suppose it is as necessary for a
plant or tree to have a supply of iron
in its sap as it is for us to have it in
our blood. I thing that if the people
were to study more tho laws of nature
they would understand better what
trees and need in order to bring
the best results.
Did you over notice that a plant al
ways diil the best in an old rusty can ?
It's a fact; tbey do much better. We
have used them for a number of years
for home use and they don't look bail,
either. My wife got some paint and
paiuted them on the outside, and she
aavs they do not dry out so fast as
when not painted. She punched a few
little holes in the bottom for drainage.
Perhaps it would be well to say that
the tops of the cans can be taken off by
setting them on a hot stove for a few
One season I used more than a
wagou load of old cans for transplant
ing young tomato plants in, and when
I got ready to plaut .in open field I
could take a wheelbarrow load of those
cans cans and run them right along
where I was going to plant, and as 1
had given them a good soaking previous
to this, the whole ball of earth could
be easily turned out in the hand with
out disturbing the roots of the plants
the least bit, and as they had formed a
host of young rootlets by being trans
planted twice before they were put in
those cans, they grew right along, and
I must say that it paid me for all
the labor bestowed.— James Turner,
in Greenville Advance-Argus.

Mrs. C. Whipple, 371 Croghan
Street, presents these facts ; For six
vears I had suffered beyond all expres
sion with Sciatic Rheumatism and
tried every known remedy, but all to
no purpose. At last I saw in the Free
Press an advertisement of St. Jacobs
Oil, tried it and am well. I can walk
without limping and sleep free from
any pain.
The best security wo can possess in
this world of beini? in the grace of God,

Wollc's KnswtU' Hopes.
Cliar'es S. Wolfe, the Union couutj
statesman ami leader of the independ
ents, arrived in ihe city last evening
and registered at the Girard Hou-e.
Shortly after he entered the hotel Mr
Wolfe was surrounded by his trusty
lieutenants, Representatives Ma pes
and McKee, and was soon engaged in
an earnest discussion of State politics.
'I don't know anything new politically,"
he said to a Press reporter. 'You see
I carue down on purely professional
business. So far as I have heard,
though, everything looks favorable to
our cause. The feeling throughout the
State against the Stalwart wing of the
party is daily becoming more a-id
more intense since the appointment ot
Coukliti#. Resides that, Arthur's
course has given great dissatisfaction,
"lie has done precisely what his ene
mies predicted he would do. When
Garfield lay upon bis death-bed untold
sympathy went out toward him from
a sorrowing nation, and it was the uni
versal desire of the people that when
Arthur ascended to the Chair he
would carry out the policy inaugurated
by his martyred predecessor. llow he
has done it can be seen by referc:n,o to
his general course. Nearly every one
of his appointments has been charac
terized by Stalwart choice. In no in
stance have the Independent Republi
cans been recognized. Garfield's poli
cy has been supplanted by a most un
generous course of action. All this
has not been without its effect. Re
publicans will not forget these things,
and they will show their love for Gar
field and their hate of Stalwartism at
the ballot box. This is the feeling, es
pecially in the country districts. We
are in shape to organize any time in
every county in the State. The situa
tion is being watched by our side very
'Have you seriously considered who
will be the Independent candidate for
Governor ?' inquired the reporter.
'You know several gentlemen have
been mentioned in that connection,' re
plied Mr. Wolfe. 'For instance, a
number of our people favor Philip C.
Garrett f others mention Wayne Mac-
Veagh, while some speak of George
Shiras. It is too early, though to
speak, on this point with any degree
of certainty.
'The result of general dissatisfaction
in the ranks will be a division of the
Republican party into three classes of
voters outside of the machine element.
For instance, there will be those Inde
pendents who are so utterly disgusted
with the Regulars that they will cer
tainly do anything to oppose machine
candidates. Then there are those who
will manifest their abhorrence of a
Stalwart Administration by voting for
the Democratic ticket. Lastly, there
are those who, disgusted with machine
politics and Stalwartism combined,
will remain indifferent to party call and
vote as conscience, and individual
choice dictate. As I said before, the
outlook is favorable for the Independ
ents.'— Philadelphia, Prens, March 21.
Beaver and Hutler an V'enetl
by iUe Auieri
ean" »t Marcli 11.
The condition of Pennsylvania poli
tics, though superficial, quiet and apa
thetic, is in reality considerably agitat
ed and quite interesting to the close
observer. The Republican Conven
tion being fixed for May 10th, the elec
tion of county delegates will soon be
active. Thus far, nearly sixty, out of
the two hundred and fifty-one compos
ing a full convention, have been chos
en, about two-thirds of whom were
elected last year, to hold over for this
year's Convention. The main interest
is in the nomination for Governor, and,
so far, only two real candidates appear,
—General James A Beaver of Centre
county, who it was announced about
New Year,'is 'slated' for the place by
Senator Cameron ; and Mr. Samuel
Butler, of Chester county, the present
State treasurer. General Beaver is
objected to on three principal grounds:
(1) That he is, and would be as Gov
ernor, Senator Cameron's lieutenant
for the present and future political
operations; (2) that he joined in the
effort., led by Senators Conkling, Cam
eron and Logan, to overbear the Re
publican party at Chicago, and nomi
nate General Grant for a third term,
misrepresenting in this the feeling of
his Congressional district, and earning,
as the reward of unfaithfulness to the
people, his St. Louis brazen medal ;
and (3) that he is intimately identified
with, and is the real supporter of, that
wretched and wasteful failure, the so
called 'State College.' General Bea
ver, in some of these particulars, is
perhaps more unfortunate than hlama
ble , but they leave him very unavaila
ble, in the most ordinary party sense,
for a campaign such as this of 1882 is
sure to be. The time has come when
people are demanding a Governor who
will be his own man, and not merely
Mr. Cameron's; who will be free of en
gagements 'to move heaven and earth,'

In behalf of Mr. Butler, it is urged
that he has not been made a 'set-up'
candidate, and did not go about solicit
ing the favor of those who make—and
hitherto, except in the United States
Seaatorship of 1881, have forced upon
the party,—their 'slate' nominations.
It is unquestionable that he has come
into the field by a popular pressure,
and that, without the appearance of an
independent demand from various quar
ters lor his candidacy, he would not
have appeared at all. Mr. Butler has
not been an 'lndependent' of any grade
of classification, in the political move
ments of the past two years, one ex
planation! and probably a sufficient one,
being that he has ljeen engaged in at
tending to the duties of the position to
which lie was assigned by the election
of 1870 ; but he necessarily stands now
as representing that strong desire and
purpose of the mass of the Rcpublicau
party to make nominations by the pop
ular will and with popular approval.
In this attitude, Mr. Butler will make a
creditable record, precisely as he Las
done in the administration of the Stat'
i treasurv. It is apparent to very many
thorough-going party men iu the Re
publican ranks, that his nomination
would be the strong thing,' and the
support which he receive is, therefore,
composed, not only of the great body
of the anti-"ur.ichine" elements, but
likewise of many who do not ordinari
ly join in revolts against 'machine'
rule. As the Convention is but sixty
days distant, it is obvious that there
will be a good deal ol energetic work

Mr. SesMilie's Visit t«» f«iii(cau.
Qeo. Scoville, counsel for Guiteau,
was seen just as he left the j.iii this
afternoon and said that lie had told the
prisoner a few minutes before that the
prospect was hopeless for securing
other counsel to argue his case. His
only reply was that if he could get rid
of Mr. Scoville he would be satisfied,
for as long as he was in the case ill
luck would follow him. He said that
he had sent a letter to Wm. A. Cook,
late special assistant attorney in the
Star route cases, and expected a favor
able reply from him iu a few days at
the farthest. Mr. Scoville stated that
there was a reluctance manifested by all
lawyers to do anything to help the
assassin, and this was a signal for a
violent outburst from Quiteau, ending
in his ordering his brother-in-law out
of his cell.
'Guiteau,' said Mr. Scoville, 'will
not brook any but cheeriug intelligence
regarding his getting out of jail. He
will not believe that the people are
against him, but presists in declaring
that they are changing their opinion
of him and his act. He earnestly be
lieves that he will be set free by the
Court in banc and is saving his money
derived from the sale of pictures and
autographs to secure a passage to
Europe. After a tour of the continent,
he says, he will return to the United
States and deliver a series of lectures.
He expects to go from the jail direct
to New York and take the first steam
er outward bound, for, as he says, be
wants time to prepare himself for his
lecture us well as for recreation and
recuperation.' Being asked if the pris
oner had heard of the attempt to as
sassinate l>r. Cray, Mr. Scoville said:
T told him of the affair, but he did not
pay any attention to it, as I thought
be would. He dismissed the subject
with a careless remark and turned to
discussing the second edition of his
book, 'The Truth.' This has already
been given to the printer, and contains
as an addenda aIT the letters received
bv the prisoner, together with the re
sult of the trial. He goes for his coun
sel unsparingly and blames all his mis
haps upon me. He also took me to
task for that Chicago interview, in
which I said it would probably be bet
ter that lie should be hanged. I want
to repeat that assertion. Guiteau is
not of any consequence in the world,
and probably if a crazy man was hang
ed it would be of benefit to people af
fiicted in this manner. Even looking
at the matter as hopefully as he does,
there is no probability that if a new
trial is granted that he will be releas
ed- The most, that could be expected
would be a commutation of sentence
to imprisonment in an insane asylum.
But I am not at all sanguine this will
be the outcome of the matter.'
•Wlmt is the prospect for the early
settlement of the bill of exceptions !
Mr. Scoville laughed us ho replied:
'lt seems as far off as ever. I had
thought to be through with the subject
by next Tuesday, but I think it will
take another month now to settle the
question. I wanted to go to Chicago
this week to attend to important busi
ness, but this matter has disarranged
all my plans. I ain very sick and
tired of the ease nnd would gladly wash
my hands of it. My law matters are
ali mixed up after related postpone
ments, and it will take me a long time
to straighten them out. I am pretty
well convinced of one thing, however,
and that is that whatever is done now
for the prisoner will have to bo done
by me.'
The influence of the temperance sen
timent received a pood illustration on
Friday last in the IT. S. Senate by the
passage o( the bill creating a commis
sion to consider the alcoholic liquor
traffic. The bill was pushed ahead of
several others with equal claims to
consideration and wai« supported with
great zeal by a number of Senators
and finally passed by a vote of 34 to
14, every vote but one of those in the
negative being Democratic. The Com
mission is empowered to examine into
the liquor traffic in its relations to
revenue taxation, morality, pauperism,
the public health and the general wel
fare, and to inquire into the results of
prohibitory legislation in the several
States of the Union. In short, the
Commission, which is to be appointed
from outside of Congress, is to collect
information on the liquor question for
the benefit of that body Their in
quiries may not result in any positive
legislation hut the information thus
systematically collected and collaed
will be of groat value as an aid to the
intelligent treatment of that important
subject, the alcoholic traffic, both in
Congress and elsewhere.

The bill to restrict Chinese immi
gration,'and which virtually prohibits
the immigration of Chinese laborers to
our shores, was, after a loug and gen
eral debate, passed in the Senate of
Congress by a vote of '29 to 15. It
will doubtless pass the House also.
The bill was vigorously opposed by
Senators Dawes, lloar, Ilawley and
other, but the outside pressure for its
passage was too strong. The senti
ment of moderate and thoughtful men
is perhaps well represented by the
position of Senator Edmunds. lie de
fended the principle on which the bill
was based. He said :
The fundamental prosperity of the
Republic consists of the homogeneity
of its people. Chinamen here did not
assimilate socially or politically, and
were not homogeneous with our popu
lation, and it did not appear that they
could assimilate. He favored the
limitatiou of the suspension to ten
years, as conforming the hill more di
rectly to the spirit of the treaty. As
thus modified, this legislation would
lie equivalent to saying, not that we
d'-siy the assimilation of the Chinamen,
if he is capable of that, b'.t only that
we shall suspend the immigration <sf
hundreds of thousands of his race until
we have tried the experiment as to
compatibility with the Chinese already
here. Alluding to the humantariao
sentiment expressed by the Senators
from Massachusetts, Mr. Edmunds ex
pressed doubt whether the people of
Massachusetts would desire, for in
stance, to encourage the immigration
of Africans. In his opinion they
would not hunger for an irruption of a
million of the inhabitants of Africa,
not because they had any hostility to
the African, or did not desire his edu
cation, growth or development,|but be
cause they did not believe it was good
for the race to be brought together indis
criminately in the same place, unless
their race tendencies were such that
being together, they assimilate and be
come homogeneous.
Mr. Edmunds voted against the bill
however, because he believed it to be
an infraction of good faith as pledged
by the last treaty, and was injurious
to the trade ot the Pacific coast with
China. The work of gathering up
Coolie laborers and shipping them to
this country is said to be going on at
an immense rate, in order that they
may be run in before the act goes iuto

The House Committee on Invalid
Pensions have reported favorably as
suggested by the fact that a large num
ber of those pensioners who had been
disabled by the loss of a foot or a hand,
or an arm above the elbow, or a leg
above the knee, were applying for re
lief bv special acts, asking for an in
crease of p/nsion. By the present
law this class of persons are entitled in
the one case of a loss of a hand or a
foot to SIS, and in the other case, iu
the loss of an arm above the elbow, or
a leg above the knee, to $24. These
rates are fixed by law as compensation
for total disability, and unless the pen
sioner has other disabilities which
create such a permanent and total dis
ability as to require the coustaut aid
and attention of another person he eau
not get any increase. The bill is de
signed to fix an intermediate grade be
tween the loss of an arm or the loss of
a log, and that permanent and total
disability which require the constant
aid and attention of another person.
As the law is, the total and perma
nent disability which requires the con
stant aid und attention of another per
son entitles the* pensioner to SSO per
month. This bill provides that those
who have lost a hand or a foot or have
suffered total and permanent disability
in the same shall for other wounds or
injuries received in the service, or dis
ease contracted in the service and line
of duty, be rated for each disability ac
cording to the rate therefore provided
by law ; provided that the aggregate
amount for all disabilities shall not ex
ceed the sum of $;10 per mouth. And
a like provision is made for the second
class above named, provided that the
aggregate amount of peusions shall
not exceed the sum of S4O per month.
The necessity of the legislation is mado
apparent by the simple suggestion
that the loss of an arm or a leg creates
of itself other disabilities. Those well
informed in the administration of the
pension law have asserted that the pro
visions of this bill are in the interest
of economy, for the reason that in all
doubtful cases under the present law
the pensioner being of that class that
are naturally the favorites of the law,
he is given the benefit of the doubt,
and placed in the SSO class, and in the
interest of justice, because these favor
ites of the law can not now get com
pensation for serious wouuds and dis
abilities contracted in service. If this
bill be made a law he could be placed
either in the S3O or S4O class, and
thus be fully and amply compensated
for all disabilities' It is proper to add
here that this committee has before it,
owing to what is regarded as a plain
defect in the law, more bills of this
class than of any other class.

in Crosby county. Week before last
he found a man guilty of shooting a
