SO»ETflliS(J ABOUT DOCTOES* There is considerable talk about '“medical ethics.” It is twisted around th e question -whether physi- • e ians should interview for publi- oation on the medical features of public questions j and if some of them 2L o , sUouId those who will not have the right to discipline them for do­ ing so. Doctors alone will not long have the power to determine such questions, 'will in a short time -determine just as it has deter­ mined other matters. Law will de- termin© it, too, in the interest of lib­ erality, publicity and equality- A While hack, one set of medical practitioners arrogantly claimed to be the. only physicians there were Law stepped in and recognized facts, facts showing that there were .allo­ pathic, homeopathic and eclectic physicians duly organized. So law put all three organizations under a common system of rights, pri-vileges a,nd penalities. Even then, a Bour­ bon remnant, adhering to the old arrogance, took the ground of non- consultation with members of other . schools. Then law again stepped in, and in this state, after next Septem­ ber 1, only those studying; medicine can practice it here who shall have passed an examination before a s ia t e board equally representing each c£ the three existing and recognized schools, and on none of those hoards IB a n adherent to the policy of mak­ ing ostracism the alternative to con- saltation With professional brethren. As to points which differentiate school from school, intending doc­ tors will be questioned by the hoard in sympathy with them. On other' ptunts, the examinations w ill bs un­ marked by scientiffc partisanship. is estimated that it will take all the gold and silver produced in the world for four years to pay the appropriations of the PSIfey-first con­ gress, which aggregate a billion dol­ lars. All the wages of the protected 'workingmen in the country for three years would n o t cover the expendi­ tures! meither would all the wages paid in 1,990 woolen milis for forty years, nor those paid in the glass in ­ dustries for 110 years. The total corn crop for 1890 would only pay two-thirds of the stupendous sum, an d the wheat crop for the same year wouldn’t pay one-third o l it. it is good to ha'Ie cheap ■ sugar—as we know it jfe” — 'Says the Cayuga Chief, “why not have cheap coats, pants, hats, caps, blankets, carpets.

Bellinger, w h o is a distant relative of the suioide, found him in the condition stated upon returning home in the evening from his employment at Fester’s store. . Life was extinct, the knot in the rope being tightly pressed against the windpipe. The body was out down with all possible haste an ex­ amination made to see if by any possibility life might be restored, but of tbis there was n o t the slightest The causes that led to the commis­ sion of the rash act are supposed to be ill health, reverses in business, and more remotely, the death of his wife some four or five years since. Deceased was a well-to-do farmer of the town of Danube some years ago, but hoping to better his fortune, sold out and went to Ontario county, en­ gaging there in farming. Deprecia­ tion. in the value Of farm lands and low pric^ for the products of the soil proved so discouraging that he sold out again and engaged in the grocery business. In this he succeed­ ed no better, and, aged and dis­ couraged anh broken in heath, he went to live with Joram P. Bellinger about four weeks ago. Hothing had been noticed in the conduct of the deceased to indicate any desperate purpose. He was about the house in the afternoon and talked with his son quite cheerfully.

Tell the people through, the papers what you have to sell and how to sell it.” The Eddy h^iedleine Company have heeh giving entertainments a t Adams’ Hall for the past two weeks to well filled houses.

The sym p a thy of all w ill go out to Dr. Geprge Graves upon his sad af- (jiietion in the death of Ms two-year- oM daughter, Hattie, under the most painful circumstances. On Tuesday evening, of last week, while the child was playidg about th e fl:oor, a small bottle containing a quantity of am­ m onia, in some unknow n m anner came into her possession, and when discovered she had gotten some of the contents into her mouth and was ap­ parently dying. The proper remedies were a t o n ce applied, but to no pur­ pose. T h e little onellingered in great agony until about 11 o’clock 'Wednes­ day night when she died. This was one of those unfortunate occurrences wM chno o n e can foresee nor forestall. The bottle containing the ammonia belonged to the doctor’s eldest son, George, who used it for cleaning Ms clothes, and it was always kept in a locked drawer. The funeral was largely a ttended from the residence Saturday after- Lecturo hy R e r .’F* B. Cu&z.

As a matter of enterprise, the DsM- ocBAr will be published daily dur­ ing the Firemen’s Convention. It will he issued every morning of that week except Monday, One of the objections raised against Herkimer when the effort was being made to locate the Conventipn here, was that it had no daily paper to publish the proceedings. The force of this ob­ jection wa* soon wiped out, and we Fill endeavor to please out firemen friendsat that time, by fulfilling this pledge. ^ ^ ■ - Court Froceedlngs.

Edwin Coon, as adminis­ trators of the estate of Amhefst Coon, deceased, vs. Ephraim COon and Matteson Coon, The action is brought to recover money claimed to belong to the estate of Amherst Coon, deceased, on account of cheese sold by the defendants.

The defendant gave his note for a quan­ tity of “ Surprise oats,” which he claimed were a fraud. The not© was transferred to plaintiff before matur­ ity.

Shea and George W* Smith for the defen­ dant. The jury brought in a verdict in favor of the plaintiff for the amount of the note. Ho. 45, William 3. Grimes and J. B. Pellon vs. Elbert L. Doty. The parties reside a t Illon. The action is brought to recover the purchase price of a furnace sold to the defen­ dant, who alleges that the furnace did not supply the requisite amount of heat, as represented, and did not operate in the manner guaranteed by plaintiffs, and that plaintiffs had been notified to remoVe the furnace from the premises of defendant.

Death of John Ives* The residents of tMs county will be pained to learn of the death of John Ives, who peacefully expired a t nine o’clock Sunday morning a t his home at Salisbuy Corners, after a long and painful illness, aged 64 years. The deceased was a highly respected gen­ tleman and leaves a valuable prop­ erty. He was associated in business with his brother, James H. I ves of Little Falls, and they held a com­ munity of interest in all their busi- ness relations. In politics Mr. Ives was a democrat, but not a very strong partisan, and was frequently the standard bearer of his patty in a number of contests. The town of Salisbury is strongly republican, but Mr. Ives’ popularity among his neighbors was fully tested when he was elected supervisor on several oc­ casions. In 1871 he was chairman of the board and made an excellent of­ ficial. In 1873 he was defeated by VOleny Eaton for sheriff, by only 54 majority, and Hon, Warner Miller was elected to the assembly the same year by 858 majority. Ip 1877, he ran against Senator Sheard for the assembly, and was defeated by 316. The funeral was held yesterday af­ ternoon, and was largely attended. ClftveIaM*s Big Show* W;; S. Cleveland’s Consolidated Minstrels, after a season of phenome­ nal successes in Hew York and the other larger cities of the East, will be seen at the Grand Opera House, Friday evening, April 24. The mer­ its of this attraction are well known to the amusement going public, and were they not, either Mr. Cleve­ land’s name or the company’s roster would be a guarantee of superiority. Among the stellar celebrities who are with the company are Willis P. Sweatnam, Billy Bice, Banks Win­ ter, Howe and Wall* the Brothers Grawford and McHisson, and the fa- mons Imperial Japanese Troupe—* 12. Such an array of talent is rarely collected in one group, and the finan­ cial success of the engagement is as­ sured. Prevention o f Sickness* The great Herb Fad of Old Aunt Rachel has been made and used by her and her friends over, 50 years.

She is over 85 years of age and has now imparted the secret to her son.

J , - Firemen’s Convention* How that it seems almost a cer­ tainty tfiat the State Firemen’s con- * vention is coming here, o n r finance committee is experiencing some diffi­ culty in raising the required amount of funds, of those who did not sub­ scribe at the outset. This should not be. Every meichant and in­ dividual should do his share, and not be “ niggardly” about It, expect­ ing to r|eap a harvest, and “some one else pay the shot.” We must have $4,600 pledged and we are far from tb a t am o u n t at ttiis writing. Those w h o have subscribed done so with the understanding that 14,000 would be pledged. ITow, if this sum is n o t pledged they cannot be blamed if they “kick.” , Our saloons, mer­ chants and boarding places should come to the front w ith a liberal sub­ scription without being shamed t o it. They are the ones who will reap the harvest while others do the work, and. w e regret tbat we are compelled to m ake public tMs state of. afffdrs. Ho m atter what others do, d o y our share. The State officers w ill hold their next meeting here, and it would be a shame and disgrace to Gie tow n if the amount is not pledged then. It will embarass those who have told of the liberality of Herkimer and who have fought for the convention. You, who have not done your duty in this matter, look at i t in an un­ selfish light, and come forward with­ out being called upon again by the committee. The money mdsfe be raised and if it is not raised, one word will take the convention from Back From STicaragua, ' Charles P. Avery and Giles Gris­ wold, jr., who went from this place to Nicaragua about six months ago, returned Saturday- They were w e l- ' corned by their many friends.. They had been employed in the machine shop at Grey to wu, and report the heat-very oppressive. Eb rain has fallen for two months, and as rain­ water is used for drinking! purposes, the supply is exhausted, and the peo­ ple’ are compelled to drink the river water, which js not very healthful or palatable, The boys are bronzed with the heat and looked like verit­ able Spaniards. Hon. Warner Miller and his party arrived at Greytown ^ two days before Avery and Griswold ; left there for home. Mr. Miller is prosecuting Ms work of examihatiou as rapidly as possible in order to get out of the country as soon as may be. He will probably return overland.^ . The young zaen came by -wht8r^to ' Hew Orleans, and the rest of the journey by cars. They have had a pleasant time in many respeefe, sea­ soned with some hardships, and are in good health. Their many interest­ ing stories are attentively listened to by their friends- Walk a Mile and Pay a Dollar. Two good people of Scranton, Pa., had a similar experience which is well Worth repeating an their qw « l words for the benefit of all our read­ ers, Mr. T. W.
