ASSAULT -
A bar-keeper in the employ of J.G. KAISER, on a dispute concerning wages, drew a revolver and threatened to take his, KAISER’s, life. The latter entered a complaint before Justice WREN who fined the assailant $30, but upon a subsequent statement made by defendant, remitted the fine.

A PECULIAR BUT EFFECTIVE REMEDY -
Harry STANLEY, a resident of Antioch, has suffered severely since June last, with rheumatism. From a strong, robust man he was reduced almost to a skeleton; the joints, especially of the knees, were stiff and swollen, the cords and ligaments contracted and the case was altogether a serious one. Some one of the butcher boys suggested to STANLEY the idea of bathing in and drinking blood. He was taken to McMASTER’s slaughter house and treated accordingly with most astonishing results. Placed in position to receive the warm blood fresh from the slaughtered animals; as soon as the blood was dried upon his legs, they were wrapped in a fresh sheep’s pelt, another being bound across the back; he also drank freely of beef blood. In 2 days after commencing this treatment STANLEY discarded the use of his crutches and is apparently a sound man. He has the full use of his limbs, the swelled joints are in a natural state and he daily gains rapidly in strength. This is to us a new remedy and whether like results would follow in all cases of rheumatism, is a matter of conjecture, but it has accomplished wonders for STANLEY.

PARTY at MEAD’S SPRINGS -
H.C. GALLAGHER, manager of the Mead hot salt springs at Point of Timber, gave a party on Friday evening of last week which is reported to have been a pleasant and enjoyable occasion.
