A ¥ OV.\G I.A»\'S LIFE SAVED At Panama, Colombia, by Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Dr. Chas. H. Utter, a promi nent physician, of Panama, Co lombia, in a recent letter states : "Last March I had as a patient a young lady sixteen years of age, who had a very bad attack of dysentery. Everything I prescribed for her proved inef fectual and she was growing worse every hour. Her parents were sure she would die. She had become so weak that she could not turn over in bed. What to do at this critical mo ment was a study for me, but I thought of Chamberlain's colic, 'cholera and diarrhoea remedy and as a last resort prescribed it. The most wonderful result was effected. Within eight hours she was feeling much bet ter ; inside of three days she was upon her feet and at the end of one week was entirely well."

So far from being hostile to the negroes the Messenger has the best of feeling for the good, orderly, well behaved class. The rowdies, rogues, rascals and rapists arc held in detesta tion by all eoutliers whites. They have nothing to commend them to any one. The Messen ger did not read with satisfac tion the movement on the part of certain western mine owners to coerce white labor by seek ing to introduce southern ne groes on the scene. It was unfair to the white operatives and unjust to the negroes, for it was certain to breed trouble and cause bloodshed. The ne gro is not wanted in the west. Many occurrences through forty years have clearly shown that. If the files of the diligent news papers were examined scores of incidents in thj west illustra tive of dislike for the negroes could be gathered. The other day several hundred Alabama negroes were taken northward. The papers have given prompt ly results. They did not get to the mines, but what they met with in Chicago was a foretaste of severe treatment farther on. In that great city 300 negroes were ordered to return to their southern homes. They were told that at Melrose Park there j were 300 armed men awaiting their coming. They would not 1 Jje allowed to enter the village. This is the cordial treatment and warm sympathy south hatiug journalists write about. ; The negroes would be safe in Alabama, but only rifles would receive them in the north, i This event is not singular, for ' events have been quite as sig- I nificant and unmistakable. The Atlanta Constitution recalls this , incident: ."Several years ago a number ;of colored men from Alabama ventured into Illinois for the purpose of securing work. They did not ask for a seat at j the head of the table, nor, in jdeed, did they suggest their preference for even the lirst table ; but they were willing to 'work for their daily bread. , The fate which befell them was ! told in the powder and smoke j of Puna and Virden." j Chicago papers, or some of 'them, are particularly severe J upon the south and are ready to denounce and magnify the "bad treatment" the negroes receive in the south. There are newspapers of great inllu ence in that city of so much 'i magnitude that are forever harping upon the negro and his 'rights in the south. But let lain dare to come that way, and he will find people "who are forever criticising others for their conduct toward the colored man sit upon their doorsteps, shotguns across their knees, ready to give him warm welcome," People who preach the gospel of hate against the ?out!i are the first to prosecute the barbaric method of intimi dation and death by loaded Win chesters. The Constitution says of the finale : Thef progress of the story completes a most disappoint ing narrative. Some of the colored men, thoroughly alarm ed, made their way to the chief ! of police, called for protection, 'which he could not give them.' 'Out of Melrose Park,' says the dispatch, 'the armed citizens remained x on watch until as sured the negroes were not coming, when they dispersed. The glorious victory of equal rights had been fought and won ! The man and brother had been held back and told to re turn to his haunt in the south." —Wilmington Messenger.

J. BEST, President, i J, W. P&SDIS, CiaghiflT. May She Win It. It is the sincere wish of thousands that the widow of Robert G. Ingersoll will win the suit which she has brought lor the unpaid balance of a fee h it was earned by her husband just before his death. Colonel Ingersoll was retained as leading counsel in defense of a will involving sB,ooo,oi>o. He received $5,000 as a retain, ing fee and was promised $95,- 000 more if he should win. Ii was the last case in which he appeared and he conducted it with marked ability as he did ever)- case lie undertook. The jury gave a verdict for Colonel lngersoll's client, confirming his title to .$8,000,000 otprop r ty. Ingersoll died a few days jlater and the ingrate for whom .he had d.me such valuab'o ser vice refused to pay the bulatne of the fee. Mrs. Ingersoll has brough" suit to recover wl.at is j-istly hers and two distinguished lawyers have volutin- red as counsel for her. Th»*)* wil. make it hot for the millionaire skinflint who refuses to pay the widow of his late friend what he owes her. Colonel Tngersoll was re markably careless :ibout col lecting his fees For man) years before his death he had a very largo practice, but man) of his clients took advantage of his good nature to swindle him. Still he received enough money to have made him a very rich man had he not been so lavish in his benevolence and so thoughtless of business oppor tunities. He was constantly giving to this charity and that, setting some unfortunate fellow on his feet, £>r furnishing some friend with money for business ventures that failed. He could resist no appeal for help and was known several times to borrow money to give to some applicant for his assistance or to some cause that he considered worthy. His $50,000 paid-up life in surance and a modest home was about all he left for the support of his family. His devotion to his friends knew no limit and he was ever ready to aid them at the sacri fice of his own comfort and interests. One incident, of the many that might be given, illustrates the unselfishness of his friend ship. When ex-senator Dorsey, cf Arkansas, was indicted for complicity in the star route frauds early in the administra tion of President Arthur he emplo) r ed Ingersoll to defend him. Not one word was said about the fee. Dorsey had been his friend and Ingersoll threw his whole soul into Dor sey's defense. The trial was one of the most famous ever had in this country, continuing every week day for more than four months and ending in the acquittal of Dorsey and his associates. On both sides there was a great array of distinguished counsel. The late Richard T. Merrick, of Washington, was chief counsel for the govern ment and there were on either side lawyers of national reputa tion, but lngersoll's wit, elo quence and persistency made him by far the most conspicuous iigure in the illustrious group. There were many dramatic episodes in the trial. One day Judge Merrick insulted Colonel Ingersoll. Ingersoll seized a huge cut glass inkstand that lay on the table in front of him and would have struck Merrick with it had not Judge Carpen ter, of South, one of lngersoll's associates in the case and a man of gigantic physique, caught his arm just as he was about to hurl the heavy missile. After the trial Dorsey asked Ingersoll to name his fee. He laughed the matter aside and though the request was repeated on several occasions Ingersoll changed the subject. Several months after Dor- acquittal he met Ingersoll in New York and asked him to dinner. When the dinner was over Dorsey, stating that lie had barely time to catch the train for his ranche in New Mexico, hand ed Ingersoll a large envelope which he said contained a sub ject for his lawyer's considera tion but asked him to open it later. lugersoll carried the envelope in his pocket several hours and as he prepared to retire that night it fell on the floor. In gersoll picked it up, opened it and found enclosed a registered $50,000 United States bond. With it was a note from Dorsey containing these words : "I beg you to accept this inadequate token of my gratitude."—At lanta JaamtL of 1901 R. G, TAYLOR, HIE UP-TO-DATE tSERfIfIRT. OF DUNN, N.
