the architect and the contractor, aud
may be adjusted without prolonged

LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH
Chicago, Aug. 15. The Times has
a dispatch from Chatsworth, the
scene of the recent terrible railroad
disaster, stating that two men have
been arrested near there on a charge
of being the incendiaries who caused
that horrible occurence. The author
ity given for the information is a man
named Dobbs, who has been working
for some time for a farmer named
Morris Kenoya. about three miles
from Kentland, Indiana. Dobbs in
formed the Times' correspondent that
two men were arrested on Sunday on
suspicion of having set fire to tho
bridge. They were given a prelimi
nary examination before a justice of
the peace and the proof was consid
ered strong enough to hold them in
jail, where they are now confined
pending farther proceedings. Dobbs
added that his employer, Kenoya, was
present at the examination. The
correspondent interviewed Wm. F.
Terrell, conductor of the freight
tram, and learned from him that the
arrest has occasioned considerable
excitement. The conductor also said
that yard master Jones, of the Peoria
& Western railway, who is stationed
at state line, visited Kentland Sat
urday, and confirmed the truth of the

That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machinery. Very
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
tho larger air-passages, but the thous
ands of little tubes and cavities lead
ing from them.
When these are clogged and choked
with matter which onght not to be
there, your lungs cannot half do their
work. And what they do, they can
not do well.
Call it cold, cough, croup, pneu
monia, catarrh, consumption or any of
the family of throat and nose and head
and Inng obstruction:, all are bad.
All ought to bo got rid of. There is
just one sure way to get rid of them,
that is to take Boschee's German
Syrup, which any druggist will sell
you at 75 cents a bottle. Even if
everything else has failed you, you
may depend upon this for certain.
The Accident to the Corwiu.
San Fuanoisco, Aug. 13. With
reference to the revenue cutter
Thomas Corwiu, which returned here
yesterday owing to having lost her
propellor when about opposite the
mouth of the Columbia river, it may
be said that this propellor was the
original oue bnilt in 1875. During
various trips of the vessel to the Arc
tic ocean it stood the severest tests.
She frequently had'to put on full
steam, with snch force as to almost
break the shaft, and the propellor ap
peared entirely uninjured. In addi
tion to this, it was taken off some
time ago aud thoroughly examined
by chief engineer Kelly, who consid
ered it perfectly safe, but there was
probably some hidden flaw, as the
propellor split at the hub at a time
when there was no special test being
made. When the accident occurred
the officers immediately put up sail
and steered for this port. Considera
ble delay was caused by head winds
and calms during the last three days
of her return trip. This is the only
season iu which' the Corwin has
failed to reach the Arctic. On this
voyage Capt. Hooper was in com
mand. He has made several impor
tant trip.s in tho vessel, having had
commaud on the voyage made in
search of the Jeanette.
Probably as much misery comes
from habitual constipation as from
any derangement of the functions of
the body, and it is difficult to cure,
for the reason that no one likes to
take the medicines usually pre
scribed. HAMBURG FIGS were

and they will be found pleasant to
the taste of women and children. 25
cents. At all druggists. J. J. Mack
