The Hock Island Uailroail Bars the
Use of Tlwiu by Its Employees.
There is no place in the service of
the Chicago, Uock Island and Pacific
road for tlie cigarette smoker. An
embargo has liecn put upon those ad
dicted to tlie habit. It will be the pol
icy of the system that no person who
smokes the weed will lie employed,
and those who are, now iu tlie road's
service and who are cigarette smok
ers will Is given the option of quit
ting the oue or tlie otiier. It Is not
the disposition of tlie executive of
ficers to temirize on tlie question.
The edict has liecn made and will lo
strenuously enforced.. This is the first
time that, a railroad -ompaiiy has
adopted such a course against tlie ci

pf au alleged Oregon resi
dent in a- Michigan insane asylum.
The patient's name hi Kdwln Cox. ami
at one tline made application to the
county tBcers of this .oiinty fr aid.
ami was assisted, also, from the tu
foi niatioii galmil by Mr. .Chase, Cox
was confituil in he Oregon asylum
during the period front 1JS1KS to IS!ir.
He was r'Ias'd. so the Mich igan at
torney is Jnforiiied, on a sort of fur
lough, as he was sane, but it was
feared lie would again dose his mind.
During hisabsence from tlie asylum
he was auicd by a brother to reach
his nativ state, and iqMin or soon af
ter Jiis arrival in Michigan, was plac
ed in the asylum for tlie lusane.
"Mr. Chase stated to a Demwrat
representative tliat his' mission to Sa
lem at the present time was to asccr-
tainpthe facts from tlie reords of tlie
- 1 ..J. ufdfiul
asy lum, and .if proven .true as stated
above, to then confer with the Oregon
state anuiormes regarnmg iuc scuu
ing back of tin patient. The. deputy
rattjorney general says that aci-ording
tc the laws of his home state, no per
muVa Iio is not a Tesidut of the state,
can no cotitin! in the asylum for the
lnsjiueVex-epting tcmiMirarily or uutil
a honnvvean lie found for him in his
reshleut stab. Mr. Chase says he has
no doubt bat Cox : Is a resident of Ore
gon and antb-iiKites no trouble with
the Oregon authorities as to sending,
tlie man back to this state. lie. says
there isiprobaldy. no law compelling
this state to accep; the patient, but
that rtats" as a ride are willing to
care for their own patrpers aud insane,
and are generally ierfVetly satistid
if they have only thelrown to care
for. That Is the way the state of
Michigan feels; hence, 3Ir. Chase s
VJsit to Salem."
r Inquiry at the Oregon hospital for
the insane reveal tlie following facts
re card ing the man Cox: Cox wasvre-
ceivedfat the asylum from Crsik cot
tv on JAbruary 9. 1SJKJ ami was dis
chargd from that institution August
2!). ISO."! Wlien aluiittel lie was 47
years of age and the commitment pa
pers show that lie was a lalsirer. tliat
it was his second attack and that he
was a native of Michigan. So itvwill
is seen according to tlie i-onteutlot of
the Michigan authorities themselves,
the man is now fonfimil in tlie very
institution to which he lieloiigs. The
idea of seiuling an agent from Michi
gan to Oregon to investigate the re
cord of an insane patient, sceuis ex
ceedingly ridiculous ami can In term
ed only a needless Junketing trip for
a snlarhd official, the exjienses inci
dent thereto being met by the taxpay
Regardless of what the statutes of
tlie state of Mh-ltigan may provide, it
is-'but "nasonalfTe to presume that a
man who may be so unfortunate as to
lie deprived of his' mental faculties,
shall receive treatment where-he. may
lie afflicted. esin"cially if he shall have
live! within that state long enough to
claim a residence. In the yes of tills
ruling, should all Inmates of the Ore
gon asylum, not resident of this sfate.
Is returned to their 'native stats, tlie
isipiilat'oti at that institution would
be very materially reducel. Iu fact
tl''ie are many luitients f the state
lnsjine asylum in this city who are
not even cltlwns of tlie United States.
Imt in the absen- of any other In
dividuals, the state lias to liear the cx-is-nse
of caring for tlieni.
As If Is. Cox will remain an Inmate
of the; Michigan nsyliim and the a u -tiforities
ot that state Will be obliged
to content- themselves -with the -fact
that he is' a native of tliat state.

EATEN BY SHARKS.
- Life at Honolulu.
Honolulu, July 27. The remains of
Eniil Unlbrvcht, of Ias Angeles, C;iL,
well known throughout the United
States as a bicycle rider, who was
drowned off Makapnn Point last Sun
day, were discovered yesterday in the
stomach of a shark caught at the en
trance of Honolulu harbor. WheiP
the shark's body was opened by native
fishermen, they found some bare hip
bones,-a right femur with no flesh ou
at all, and a right footthe latter in a
most remarkable state of preservation.
The shark's teeth had bitten it off at
the aukle as clean as a blow from a'
guillotine miyht have, and, being swal
lowed whole, it remained with only a
fev. scratches. The condition of the
other bone showed that when- the un
fortunate young man's body was at
thef mercy of the waves a iHirabep. of
sharks kad attacke! it at ouce. and
they had fought over it,, rending It
limb from limbv
One of the toes of the foot had a
very peculiar malformation. From
this fact M rs. Ulbbrecht, the widow
of Uhltirecbt and several other friends
identified the remains. The shark was
14 feet long and weighed "00 pounds.

me from the brink of the grave almost,
and I wish to thank you. About eighteen-months
ago I was a total wreck,
physically. I had been troubled with
lencorrhcea for some time, bat b ad given
hardly any attention to the. trouble.
At last inflammation of the womb
and ovaries resulted and then I fcnf
"fered agonies, had to give tap my pro
fession (musician and piano player),
was confined to my bed and life becamo
a terriblo cross. My husband sum
moned the best physicians but their
benefit was but temporary at best. ; I
believe I should have contracted the
.morphine habit under their care, if my
common sense had not intervened. I
One day my husband noticed the.ad
Tcrtisement of your remedies and im
mediately bought me a full trial, Soon
the pain in my ovaries was gone. lam
