1st of April 1880 I feel like I know him well and while I shall not attempt to eulogize him as he should be by one who is ca fable I would be pleased to do him Honor im my humble way Since his death I am the oldest physician of Springfield Not the oldest man but have been located in the town longer than any other I have been with him in the work of all kinds in tall kinds of cases and under all kinds of- circumstances and have been with him eireumpsNot great in that he was known allover the world not great because he had achieved a fortune nor because he had done any special great act or had added anything very startling or won derful in the medical world but because greatfphyscian PTac1Ido not mean by that that he did not II apace of the times of the pro ross of medicine but tnat he simply ntryIderfully endowed with all the natural qualifications if he had had training in hospitals and in foreign and clinics its would have schoolsI position from which the imight have heard from hint He was not allowed these privileges therefore he contented1iim elf with being one among the best general practitijpners He achieved that much by application and study for in addition to his attainments he read a great deal and continued io rend medical journals and new textbooks till his death in which way he kept himself thoroughly posted in the progress of medicine In all the nbw ideas new treatments new moth ods of surgical operations etc he was quick to discern which was best and was not slow in its application He was a nan endowed with a special sense of boner RiGjlT was his motto He treated others right and he expected to be treated right in return He lived up to the code of medical ethics in his dealings and work with other physicians and he tlespisedf the littleness of thos who did not do so He was always sat isfied that he was wanted by the patient y before Jie visitea him and was always satisfied thathejwas wanted by the patient and physician in attendance before h 3 visited anothers patient He did not seek practice by any other method than by his well earned and deservedmerits Ee did not advertise for it in any wag he toadied to no one inspiringbeneficial service insomuch as the patient must feel better if he can trust veryfarHis people loved him A great many couldnot get anybenefit from medicines unless they had been prescribed by him Perhaps they never knew how ever that his prescriptions were always scientifically com osfed and that a sure and correct calculation So to parts and quantities contained therein hadbeeg made as well as a good reason for giv ing them He never gave the druggist an opportunity to send a prescription back for a correction on account of mistakesHis were always inclined to go to him for advice and his councils were pleasant and judicious He was a father to us and gave us fatherly ad- V ce While there might nave been some dissentions among ourselves at times he was always beloved by Us alL Socially he was affable genial and greatdealthe general news of the day but was aso well posted in general literature He also loved to read the new romantic stories and could generally tell you the best ones As a business man he was a failure considered from a business mans standpoint for he did not accum ulate money He made money in other words he earned it but he allowed many of his friends to keep it He could not collect money after Tie earned it He kept no account book If head enough for emergencies he was Satisfied His career has been a successfulone notwithstanding the fact that he did not accumulate wealth More successful indeed than those who do b his attention was directed to the causeI ation of pain4 and distress of not to self He was not selfish He was a great big good hearted tan who was always ready to serve others first He lived a long and prosperous life It seems to me that there must bba spec ial dispensation in such lives as this Fiftyfive of hard labor bard-

Congressmen asking them to ntercede with Gpv Hanly to the end that they may not be extradited if another attempt is made to have them Returned to Kentucky for trial The writers call attention to the news paper dispatches saying Gov Beckham is about to issue requisitions on Gov Hanly and add that the purpose nomi Dally is that they may be taken back for trial but actually be railroaded through a form of trial then butchered to make Goebelite holiday They continue by saying that While there is less discussion about this matter now than there was when the ques tion was before Govs Mount and DurI bin the writers Hdo not believe that this indicates that the people of Indiana are any more willing that Such a de mand should be granted now than they werethenJ They say that they have not sought to approach Gov Hanly nor heretofore to have him approached in their behalf and have no authoritative information as to how he feels We do know they add fthat he is a good Republican and a just

cannot be a very poor country in an agricultural way where either corn blue grass or red cldyer will growamr do well and where the three will grow right there is the place to stay if there and if not get there as soon as you can It seems strange to us today to recall the time and only a very few years ago at that when corn in some of the western states was a serious competi1 tor of coal as fuel When corn Is only worth 10 cents a bushel aqdsott coal Is 5 per ton It is economy to burn the corn anti many did it in those years t While black walnut has in In measure gone out of fashion ntncnblnet

for this purposes The crop of the comingear Is al ways quite largely n upon the Ifthethe fields were early fall plowed if previous cultivation has been thorough if the weeds have been kept down if the clover has done its preparatory work the new crop starts under favor able conditions The yearly milk product of a cow very closely approximates the value of the cow Thus If a cow will give a milk product worth 50 she is worth 50 If she can show up 75 she Is worth that sum The rule however does not hold good as to cows wh ch will only produce milk orth20 er year Such a beast Is only worth j

the country becomes more and inore limited It is not possible to grow 65 cent wheat with profit on land worth 100 per acre ItA very sensible rind patriotic move lit on foot In New York being the plan

this pur pse corn with immense talks and but few ears and that this must tie cut when full of water which resulted in a quality of ensilage very like sauerkraut and possessing a loud odor Experience

That is not Till T y a good deal The getting of the cows will compel a change In his method of farming which will result In bigger and better crops and an Increased fer tility of his soil The fact is

districts of New York during the holiday season can scarcely fall to be impressed with the almost phenomenal difference in the amount of business done in the various stores He will notice that one store seems to be constantly crowded with customers that the salespeople are working to the limit of their endur ance and that the delivery wagons are kept busy night and day distributing the goods sold In another store lu the same block perhaps next dporl he will observe that there Is practically Noth ing doing This store Is quite a4nt tractive as the other it handles the same lines and qualities of goods land perhaps they conic from the same man ufactories The prices are equally low and the clerks are courteous and attentive But there is a much smaller srtaff of salespeople employed and ev n Cur ing the holiday rush they are not kept busy Why la there such a remarkable difference I have taken the trouble to invjestl gate the problem and have made cjires ful observations in a dozen or wore cases I have Invariably found sbat the merchants who were doing the business were good advertisers and that the ones who were apparently receiving but little benefit from the holiday

as he drew long breaths from his chibouk and watched an elderly Grusian and his daughter pass by The hew law is in effect and the bride for the prince not yet obtained And Mizik the officer of the ameer will soon be here to ascertain the truth Hafiz Effendi had not traveled all the way from Constantinople simply to witness the fair at Tiflis Hafiz had made his wealth in the business of sup plying wealthy Osmanlis with pretty Circassian or Georgian girls for their wives and his Income had been rudely stopped by the new order of the czar The hated Muscovite government had interdicted the trade in women which had made Circassian and Georgia in famous Here was the annual fair at Tiflis under full sway and all the wealth and beauty of the Caucasus were pres ent Hafiz Effendi shook his head grunt ed another curse against the Muscovite and then placing his chibouk in the care of Muley the keeper of the ba zaar wandered or rather waddled round the gay streets of the fair Following in his wake was a tall handsome ouiig officer whose uniform as well as his accent proclaimed him to be from St Petersburg Ah1 said this officer to himself as he saw the frpwn on the face of the Turklour

and Dave no wealth But why has the czar made this law Because he likes note fact that our pririces have more than one wltef And has he the ruler of the greatest country on earth not more than oneT It

friend r that hedoes not know he is going to perform this generous act Mizik shook liIs head again He did not understand this slow and laborious method His way the way of his people would have been to attack Tiflis and take what was wanted Mizik had nQt yet learned the power of the arm that reaches from St Petersburg to the Caspian Suddenly he tarte from his seat Curses said Hafiz You will be shot and you will hive me shot by the Muscovite There cis There she is saijl Mizik breath IThere have spoken His eyes are not now turned this way but hold yourself with calmness Orskotr knows things when he sees them At that moment the officer mention ed who had been sauntering along the crowded street stopped to speak toa girl who had come to the door of the bazaar of Ignatz Biartelkis She was a girl who could cause others than Mizik to stare Her complexion was like the blush of a peach Her eyes were black anti shaded with long silky lashes Her hair was long and fell in a raven Hood below her waist She wore a tall bejeweled headdress that made her seem almost statuesque From her shoulders a long elegant covering pf lace barely hid a gown that might have come from Paris Oni her feet Were tiny patent leather shoes from the bazaar of the Jewish trader two doors away Upon her fingers were various rings diamonds rubies and sapphires Jeweled bracelets were up on her wrists Her form was elegance endowed with human life The como bination of the modern and the charac4 teristic dress of her people made sot charming a tout ensemble that all who passed the bazaar paused to gaze at the girl Would thatone content the mighty prince of Bokhara asked Hafiz slyly Would slier She Is tit for the wife of a ruler 3f gods Who Is she That my friend Is the daughter of Ignatz Biartelkis Hername

best means of making sufficient wealth with which to settle down in his home at Stamboul and en joy himself Unfortunately for Hassan the trade had not proved as profitable as he expected because the Russian government had given rights and priv ileges concessions they called them to a German company to run a line of steamboats from port to port Hassans field or seatof activity was therefore limited to those occasions whenrthefair at TUBs or a sudden rush of goods to Astrakhan made the usual boats unable to accommodate the increase of trade A caravan from Trebizond bad brought td one of the Caspian ports a vast amount of goods for the fair and Hassan hat succeeded in getting some- o the overflow for his vessel Having de Ivered goods to the Persian Russian Jewish and Turkish mer chants to whom they were assigned he lay at the wharf trying to pick up a return cargj The night of the day on which Hafiz Effendi andj Mizilr from Bokhara had met Hassanj strolled on the upper deck at stern of his vessel smoking a cigarette fie was disconsolate and was seriously contemplating leaving the river anil getting back to the Cas pian for hts chances of obtaining a cargo for any Caspian port seemed slight Suddenly a figure clad in a long black coat bent apd bearded like the usual trading Jew at the fair store from behind the shadow of a warehouse on the wharf and came cautious ly toward the vessel Hassan bracing himself and pulling from the folds of his garments a dagger advanced to the edge of the deck What do you desire stranger he asked loudly Via the name of Allah hold
