JAMES AltKIM GARFIELD.
Full Particulars of the Death
Cenernt Swnliu'n Account or Ibr rrrsldrnl's
Judge-Advocate Oeneral Swaim, who was
tlio only one with the President when he be
gan sinking last night, makes the following
statement: It was my night's watch with the
President. I had been with him a good deal
of the time since 3 o'clock. A few minutes
before 10 I left Ccl. Rockwell, with whom I
had been talking for some moment? in the
lower hall, and proceeded to the President's
room. On entering I found Mrs. Garfield
sitting by his bedside with no other person in
the room. I said to her, "How is everything
going on?" She replied, "He is sleeping
nicely." I said, "I think you had better go
to bed and rest." I asked what had been
prescribed for him to tako during the night.
She replied that she did not know. She had
given him milk punch at 8 o'clock. I then
siid, "If you will wait a moment I will go to
the doctor's room and see what is to be given
during the night." Sho then said, "there's
beef tea down stairs; Daniel knows where to
get it." I went into the doctor's room and
Found Dr. Bliss there and asked him what was
to be given during the night He answered,
"I think I had better fix up a list and will
bring it to you very soon." I then went into
tho surgeon's room and had some little con
versation with Mrs. Garfield. She felt of the
President's hand, laid her hand on his fore
head and said, "He seems to bo in good con
dition, " and passed out of the room. I im
mediately felt his hands, feet and knee. I
thought the knee felt a little cool and got a
flannel cloth, heated it at the fire and laid it
over his tight hand and sat down in a chain
beside his lied. I was hardly seated when
Boynton came in and felt of the President's
pulse. Asked him how it seemed. Ho re
plied, "It is not as" strong as it was this after
noon, but very good." I said he Beemed to
be doing well. "Yes," he answered, and
passed out. He was not in the room more
than two minutes. Shortly after this the
President awoke. As he turned his head on
awakening I arose and took his hand. I was
on the left hand of the bed as he lay. I re
marked, "You had a-comfortable sleep." He
then said, '0 Swaim, this terrible pain!"
placing his hand on his breast over the region
of his heart. I naked him if he could do any
thing for him. He said, "Some water." I
went to the other side of the room, poured out
an ounce and a half of Pollard' water into a
glass and gave him to drink. He took the
glass in his hand, I raised his head as usual,
and drank the water very naturally. I then
handed the glass to tho colored man, Daniel,
who came in during the time I was getting
water. Afterwards I took a napkin and wiped
his forehead, as he usually perspired on
awakening. He then said, "0 Swaim, this
terrible pain! Press your hand on it!" I laid
my liand on his chest. He then threw both
hands t the side, and on about a line with his
head, and exclaimed, "Oh, Swaim, can't you
stop this?" and again, "Oh, Swaim?" I then
saw him looking at me with a staring expres
sion. I asked him if he was suffering much
pain, and receiving no answer, I repeated the
-question with a like result. I then concluded
he was either dying or having a severe spasm,
and called to Daniel, who was at the door, to
tell Bliss and Mrs. Garfield to come immedi
ately, and glancinz at the small clock hanging
on tlte chandelier nearly over the foot of the
.. bed, saw it was 10:10 o'clock. Dr. Bliss came
in within two or three minutes. I told Daniel
to bring a lighted candle which habitually
stood behind the screen near the door. When
the light shone full on his face I saw lie was
dying. When Dr. Bliss came in I said, "Dr.
have yon any stimulants? ho scemes to be
dying." He took hold of his wrist as if feel
ing for the pulse and sai , "Yes, he is dying!"
I then said to Daniel, "Run and arouse the
house." At that moment Col. Rockwell came
in, when Bliss said, "Let's rub his limbs,"
which we did. In a Sev moments Mrs. Gar
field came in and Raid, "What doe? this mean?"
and a few moments afterwards said, "Oh why
am I made to sutler this cruel wrong?" At
10:;)5 r. M. the sacrifice was completed. He
breathed his last, calmly and peacefully.
Arrival at Washington.
Tho train beating the remains of tlis late
President Garfield arrived at Washington at
4:41, A vast throng of people assembled
about the depot to do honor to tne illustrious
dead, every avenue and approach being dense
ly packed with citizens. A large force of po
lice is on duty. The military were drawn up
against the East side of Sixth street, with the
right resting on Pennsylvania avenue. Upon
the opposite side of tho street, nearest the de
pot, was a long line of carriages prect-ded by a
hearse, which was drawn up directly at the
main gate on the Sixth street tide. The hearse
used was furnished by undertaker Spear of
this city, arid is known - as the centennial
heirse, it having been awarded the prize at
the Centennial Exhibition. It was draped in
lilau of rich and heavy material, wholly un
relieved by any other color, and wai drawn
by six iron gray horses whose trappings were
also drapped in black. Jusc before tho train
entered the depot, the platform was cleared
by tho police, and officers of the army and na
vy to the number of 130 formed in single rank
upon the left, facing the train. As the train
slowly rolled into the depot every head upon
the platform was un:ovcred, and a stillness as
of the grave pervaded the vast throng, which
for more than an hour had been patiently
waiting by the roadside. Soon Mrs. Garfield,
ass.sted by Secretary Blaine, descended from
the oar, and taking his arm upon her right,
and that of her son Harvey upon the left,
walked directly to the carriage in waiting.
Her face was completely concealed by a heavy
black veil which hung nearly to the ground,
and whatever emotions she may have experi
enced were sacred from those who gazed upon
her. She entered the State cirriage, and was
followed by her daughter, Mollie Garfield, her
son Harry, Mrs. Rockwell and Miss Rock
well. Arthur leaned upon the arm of Senator
.Tones. Grant was present, with the cabinet,
physicians ami attendants, and MacVeagh's
wife and two sons. The first three carriages
received the ladies of the party who did not
accompany the procession to the capitol. After
they had moved on a short distance from the
entrance, the coffin appeared, borne on the
shoulder of soldiers of the 2d artillery, de
tailed from the arsenal barracks. On the, right,
in single file, and headed by Adjutant Gener
al Drum, were officers of the navy, under the
lead of Rear Admiral Nichols.
The external mourning emblems at the cap
itol are not very elaborate or profuse, but ar
ranged in perfect taste. Tho black dranery,
contrasted with the whits marble of the edi
fice, forma a sp-cacIo of sombre beauty rarely
equaled. The rotund is heavily draped al
most to the top, and the gilt frames of histor
ical painting are closely covered with crape.
The catafalque in the center of the rotunda,
although simple and plain by wish of the fam
ily, i of the finest material, and the very
handsome base is 12 by 0' fret and 8 inches
high, covered with heavy black cloth. On
ttus is an upper portion 6 feet long by 2) wide
at the top and two high. It increases gradu
ally in size to the base. This portion is cover
ed with black cloth' in vertical folds with large
silk bows at the comers and heavy silki
fringed edges, The silver mouldings at the
top complete tho catafalque. The entrances
to the halls of the Senate and House are also
tastefully draped with mourning.
Preparing the Corpse.
Elberok, Sept. 21. The President's left
hand is laid across his breast after the maimer
he had in life. This was done in order to
make his resemblance as near to life as possi
ble. Nobody will be allowed to enter the
death chamber, which has been put in order
ns it was when tho President was brought to
Elberon. The body is so greatly shrunkly
that artificial means had to be resorted to to
give the clothes the appearance of filling. In
addition to the natural shrinking from his ill
ness, the operation connected with the au
topsy has left the body in an even moro ema
ciated state. A plaster cast was taken of his
face yesterday, as well as of his right hand.
In taking the cast of his hand it was some
what discolored, so this hand will not be seen.
The effect of oil used upon the face prior to
taking the cast disfigured the features some
what and slightly altered the color of the face,
so the appearance is very much less natural
oven than it was just after death. The Presi
dent had a massivo head, and the large bones
show very prominently. Tho cheeks are fall
en in. The beard has been so arranged about
the parotid gland so as to conceal that scar,
and such arrangement made about the pillow
as to still further conceal tho swelling, which
sapped away his life. The undertaker says,
in his opinion, it will not be safe to expose the
body after it leaves here. Tho effects of fluids
in embalming arc such as to have already
hardened the features. A number of journal
ist;, who have been so closely watching the
President's case all these weary weeks, were
given an opportunity for tho first view of the
ody. . Sentries stood at cither side of tho en
trance. The coffin lay in the hall way of the
lower floor with a soldier at tho head and foot
of it. The coffin was black, with silver
handles, and upon the top was a silver plate.
The coihn was lined with white satin, only the
face.and, shoulders being visible, and one only
needed to know that all that jomained of
James A. Garfield lay there to recall tho fea
tures so familial during life. The faco to
those who knew General Garfield's only from
his portraits, could not have been -recognized.
Even the features were no longer clear; there
was an expression about the lower lip which
those who know him best would recognize.
The cheeks were gone, and the brow had lost
its massive appearance which characterized it
in life. Tho involuntary whispered remark of
all as they gazed upon the loved form with a
shudder, was "I never should have recogniz
ed him. How ho must have suffered." The
shrunken earthly form told how much. It
was most marvelous that he lived so long. As
the crowd slowly entered and left the hall the
bell of the little chapel in the distanco was
tolled. Its toll could be only faintly heard
above the roar of tho train.
Disposition of the Boil)-.
The President will bo dressed in the same
suit of clothes ho woro in delivering his in
augural, unless with the exception of a pair of
silk stockings knit for him by his mother, and
lately received. The coffin is 0 feet 3 inches
long, covered with black cloth with velvet
trimmings, and mouldings, handles and
thumbscrews of solid silver. Inside it is up
holstered with tufted white satin. The colhu
ilate is of silver, and the inscription, written
y Attorney-General MoVeagh, is as follows:
JAMES ABRAM GARFIELD,
Born November li), 1831; Died President of
the United States, September 1!), 18S1.
The Funeral Cortege.
Elbekos, Sept. 21. Immediately after the
conclusion of the services at Franklin cottage,
Mrs. Garfield, accompanied by her son Harry,
Col. Swaim, Colonel and Mrs. Rockwell, Miss
Mollie Garfield, Miss Rockwell ana Dr.
Boynton, left the cottage and boarded tho
first c lach. Tho cabinet and wives followed
and took seats in tho second coach. Mrs.
Garfield was heavily veiled, and pissing to
tho train exhibited the same fortitude which
has characterized her manner throughout.
The Anl )hj.
Elbeuon, N. J., Sept. 20. Tho following
official bulletin was prepared at 11 to-night
by the surgeons who have been in attendance
upon the late President. By previous arrange
ment the post mortem examination of the
body of President Garfield was uncle this
evening in the presence and with the assist:
ance of Drs. Hamilton, Agnow, Bliss, Barnes,
Woodburn, Reyburn, Andrew H, Smith of
Elberon and Acting Assistant Surgeon D. S.
Lamb of the Army Medical Museum in
Washington. The operation was performed
by Dr. Lamb. It was found that the ball,
after fracturing the rieht eleventh rib, had
passed through the spinal column in front of
the spinal cord, fracturing the body of the
f rst lumbar vertebra, driving a number of
small fragments of bone into the adjacent soft
parts, and lodging just below tho pancreas,
about two inches and a half to the left of the
spine and behind the peritoneum, where it
ha 1 become completely encysted. The imme
diate cause of death was secendary hemorr
hage from one of the mesenteric arteries ad
joining the track of tho ball, the blood rup
turing the peritoneum and nearly a pint es
caping into tho abdominal cavity. This
hemorrhage is believed to have been the
cause of tho severe pain in the lower part of
tho chest, complained of just before death.
An abscess cavity, six inches by four in di
mensions, was found in the vicinity of the
gall bladder, between the liver and transverse
colon, which were strongly inter-adherent.
It did not involve the substance of the liver,
and no communication was found between it
and the wound. A long suppurating channel
extended from the external wound between
the loin muscles and right Sidney, almost to
the right groin. This channel is now known
to be due to the burrowing of pus from the
.wound. U was supposed, during life, to have
been the track of the ball. On examination, of
the organs of the chest, evidences of severe
bronchitis were found on both sides, with
broncha pneumonia of the lower portions of
the right lung and the cough of much less
extent than of the left. The lungs contained
no abscesses and the heart no clots. The liver
was enlarged and fatty, but free from
abscesses, nor were any found in any other
organ except the left kidney, which con
tained, near its surface, small abscesses about
one-third of an inch in diameter. In review
ing the history of the case in connection with
the autopsy, it is quite evident that the dif
ferent suppurating surfaces, ami especially
the fractured spongy tissues of the vertebra?,
furnish a sufficient explanation of the septic
condition which exi.td.

The autopsy of the President's lody com
menced at 5 o clock, and was not concluded
until 8. Large crowds assembled at Elberon
to heir the result. Bliss stated that the
autopsy had been very tedious, and the time
occupied in searching for tho ball alone was
nearly three quarters of an hour. Mrs Gar
field was feeling much relieved since the
autopsy, inasmuch as it resulted in establish
ing the fact that the patient's deth was in
evitable. The point of tho ball was somewhat
blunt, or in a battered condition, caused by
the force with which it struck the rib, while
in other respects its shape was not altered.
BHbs took charge of the bullet and sealed it
for preservation until tho courts should re
quire its production.

The Hot Earth Cure.
While at Linkville, we visited the spot tf
hot earth, a short distance from that town,
which Dr. Beach is utilizing in the cure of
many painful and distressing ailments. On
Maj. Q. A. Brook's land is about an acre of
ground which is kept hot by vapor that as
cends from some mysterious source of heat bo
low. Just beneath the surface this earth is to
hot to hold the hand upon, and at twelve
inches from the surface in some places it sends
tho mercury up to 20. Fahrenheit. Whether
this heat is of chemical origin near the surface
or is from direct connection with the vast
molten interior of tho earth, is as yet a matter
of pure speculation, but tho theory of chemic
al derivation seems the more rational. How
ever that may be, the hot earth which is
a kind of red loam in composition, has been
found to have astonishing curative properties
in cases of rheumatism, lame back, diseased
and stiffened joints.and many other affections.
A number of remarkable cures are reported
already, two of them being of ncuto affections
of tho back, re-ulting from recent accidents,
ono c.aso being that of Mr. Alexander, who
was crippled in tho stage accident between
Linkville and Yreka last May. Dr. II, M.
Beach has had a building erected over a portion
of the hot earth, and within its walls patients
are treated, the treatment dillersng with tho
difference in the cases, In some instanccathc
effected part or even the wholo body of tho
patient is hurried in the earth, a Inch is temp
ered to asui table warmth. In otlici cases the
patient is given a vapor bath as hot as can bo
borne. As yet tho use of the hot earth as a
remedial agent has just begun, but it gives
promise of becoming of vast utility and ben
efit to afflicted humanity, and we should not
be surprised to seo some day a sanitarium of
national, even of world-wido fame and resort
upon tho heated earth at Linkville. Anh-

It does not pay to mako poor buttor. Oleo
margarine, suine or butterino will outsell it
every time, and the maker has no right to
complain if these imitations bring a better
price riian the apology for the butter he offers.
But what is the uso of making poor butter ?
It is true that every one cannot make an A 1
article of gilt-edged butter, but ordinarily
with tho right sort of appliances, and with
care and common intelligence, butter of fine
quality may be produced by any one.
There is, of course, a vast difference be
tween tho milk of different cows. Tho but
ter globules, it is claimed, are firmer in the
milk of the Jersey cow than of natives, or in
deed of any other breed, and the butter is
therefore firmer in texture. But this fact is
against the keeping qualities of Jersey but
ter, unless more labor and caro arc used in
working and salting it, as it docs not so
readily receive and retain salt. Jersey butter
should be used or consumed while fresh, as
then its superior flavor is secured.
Cleanliness is indispensable in making a
fine saleable quality of butter. The fine nutty
flavored butter so eagerly sought is made
only where cleanliness is conspicuous. The
food has moro or less to do with the milk, and
at this season, when grass is liable to fail from
continuous dry weather, those who followed
our suggestions in the Spring and put in ever
green sweet corn, oi other suitable kinds for
midsummer feeding to cows, are no doubt
deriving much benefit from it. Pausing by
the handling of the milk and cream, which
has frequently been treated of in our columns
of late, the next thing to be careful about it
to preserve the granules entire, as near as .
may do. i ne salt useii snouia be clean and
fine and free from lumps, so that it will dis
solve, for it is liable to injury in this way.
Nor should it be worked too much, as the
butter grains are thus broken.
The lest butter gilt-edged- is made from
cream taken from the milk while it is sweet,
or before acidity has been developed. The
practice formerly was not to skim a pan of
milk until it was clabbered. When all of tho
cream is thrown up the sooner it .is removed
tho better. If it stands longer the flavor gen
erally is injured by acidity. Tho proper tem
peraturethat which has been found by ex
periment to be tho best for churning cream
is from f5 to GO degrees Foh. The agitation
of tho cream in churning should bo regular,
neither too quick nor too slow. When but
ter is properly churned, both as to time and
temperature, it does not require much work
ing to render it firm and waxy, rendering it
easy of molding into any desired shape. In
washing and salting, so that the butter will
keep without danger of rancidity and loss of
its agreeable flavor, the object is to remove
tho buttermilk. When this is thoroughly
done from butter of the quality above men
tioned, it will be justly entitled to the name
of gilt-edged. Prairie Farmer.
