Fl RTHKII NEWS OF lilt. CRONIN,
Chicago, May 27.—The evening papeifl
to-night publish a story which implicates a member of the Chicago
police force in the taking oil' of Dr.
Cronin. The officer in question is Detective Daniel Coughlin. The story is to
thc cfteet that on the morning of the day
on which Dr. Cronin disappeared, Cough-
lin engaged at a livery Btable, not far
from where Cronin lived, n horse and
buggy, wnicb he snid a friend of his
would call for that evening. That the
man called, und was given a white horse
similar to the one attached to the buggy
in whicli Cronin was carried away. That
the time of going and the description of
the man correspond minutely, both with
the time and man who came' for Cronin,
and with the exact appearance of the
man himself. That Coughlin subsequently cautioned tbe livery stable
keeper to say nothing about the matter.
Force is added to those revelations from
the fact that Coughlin was a member of
one or more secret societies of which
Cronin was a momber, and they were
enemies. The matter was finally brought
to the attention of Chief of Police Hubbard, wbo seems inclined to take a
serious view of the matter, and promises
to prolie it to the bottom. The explanation which Detective Coughlin gave to
Superintendent Hubbard to-day, was in
substance this: A few days lief ore May
the fourth, a man called at East Chicago
Avenue Station, und began enquiring for
Coughlin. He introduced himself as
Thomas Smith, of Hancock, Michigan,
and a friend of Coughlin's brother, who
keeps a livery stable in that town. He
was on bis way to New Mexico, he suid,
and before leaving Hancock, Coughlin
asked him to look up hiB brother Dan,
who was on the police force in Chicago.
As Mr. Smith had said he
intended to remain a few days
in this city. Detective Coughlin
waB glad to see his brother's friend,
played the host to the best of his
ability. On the Saturday Smith said lie
would like to take a buggy ride that
evening, but ho did not know wlietlti r
the livery stable keeper would trust
strangers with a horse. He had an mint
living on South Halstead Street, und he
would drive down there in the afternoon
if be could get a rig. Coughlin told
Smith to go to Dlnan's place whenever
he wanted a horse, and that ho himself
would see Dinan. Smith got a horse and
rig, and Couglin did not meet him again
for a week or more. When Coughlin
met him on the Street and wanted to
know why he did not pay for the use of
the rig (IJinan having come to him for
money), Smith gave Coughlin (3, und
said he would give him other two later.
Then when the white horse story came
out, he said to Coughlin, "I told Dinan
to say nothing, fearing it might be connected with the disappearance of Cron in."
Coughlin said that the man had gone to
New Mexico a week ago, but did not
know his address nor address of Smith's
aunt on Halstead Street. Telegrams
have lieen sent to Michigan to learn something further concerning this Smith.
Coughlin was brought down to the Superintendent's oflice again at 4:110 p. in.
Mayor Creigher, Col. W. P. Rend, Attorney W. G. Ilynes, Corporation Counsel, Hutchinson and Superintendent
Hubbard present. He stood the fire of
questions for a while with n fair degree
of self possession, then he became
flurried, and nervous, but snid nothing
that could be used against him. Nothing
haB been made public, that transpired in
the Superintendent's oflice,

San Francisco, May 27.—Superintendent Fillmore, of the Southern Pacific

time of the year. "One of the chief
causes," he Baid, "ls the competition of
tbe Canadian Pacific, which is not hampered by the interstate law, which makes
it bo hard for seaboard cities to keep up
their commercial supremacy." "American roads disburse all their earnings in
America, while this road does not spend
a dollar in this country."

A Buddhl.t Campaign In Japan.
A recent; issue of the Japan Weekly Mail
describes a new Buddhist political movement in Japan, by whicli it is hoped to
stay the progress of Christianity and arrest the disintegration of the ancient
faith. Innumerable devices have, from
time to time, been tried; but all these
having proved abortive, the new movement aims at uniting various political interests with religious defence. Thanks to
the editor of a paper called the Nihon-jin
("Man of Japan"), an association has
been formed for the maintenance of
loyalty to the Empeior and of the truth
of the doctrines of Buddha—"a union,"
says the prospecttiB, "of all these who
wish to protect our land and   religion

P.r Ahuiahsil, a prisoner confined in
Nauaimo gaol.
The prisoner was charged liefore J. P.
Plants, Esquire, S. M., at Nanaimo. on
the loth March, 18811, with having on
etc., at etc., committed "an aggravated
assault by unlawfully an I maliciously inflicting upon one Loo, an Indian, certain
grievous bodily harm," uud upon being
tried summarily under Ihe "Summary
Trials Act," woe convicted and sentenced
to six months'imprisonment with hard
labor, und a tine of $811 and $20costB,
amounting to $b.(i, und ill default of payment of said $100 to sillier imprisonment
for a further term of six months.
A rule nisi to shew cause why a writ of
habeas corpus should not issue, wus grunted on ^Ist inst. by Mr. Justice Crease,
and the case was argued this dnv, Deputy
Attorney-General Irving appearing for
the Crown, and Mr. McElmen for the
prisoner.
Mr. Irving t<Mik a preliminary objection that tbe writ of habeas corpus did not
lie and lhal the only remedy was
by writ of error and cited the 22nd
section of tbe Summary Trials Act. It
was contended on behalf of the prisoner
that tin-writ could not be taken away
excepl by express words, and the eases
R. v. Cyr and R. v. Richardson, P. R.
(Out.), were cited to show that both a
habeas corpus and a certiorari bad lieen
granted under this act. The court remarked that it would be a serious matter
to adopt the construction contended for
by Mr. Irving, and establish that a decision of a Magistrate's Court presided
over by a person not learned in the law,
should be of equal force with a judgment
of a Court of .Assize on an Indictment.
This objection was overruled.
Mr. McElmen then objected to the
warrant of Commitment, and contended
(amongst several other grounds) that
although the act tinder which the conviction took place authorised imprisonment for the Jiue, yet it did not provide
imprisonment for costs; that here the
warrant in its mandatory part commanded
the Gaoler to imprison for a further term
of six months "unless the said $10J shell
be sooner paid" which $100 included not
only tlie line $80, but also the costs $20.
Another ground was also urged against
the conviction, namely, that the charge
did not contain the necessary legal description of the offence cither to give jurisdiction or to enable the prisoner to plead-
the conviction in bar of u second prosecution—that the charge in a conviction
must lie certain—ami so stated as to bi'
pleadable against a second prosecution,
AV Hoggard, 30, O,. B., (Ont.). 152, and
8. v. Donelly, 20, C. P., (Out.), 105, and
also cited Paley on Convictions to show
that where the Statute (as in this case
see s. 3, sub. h. c.) decribes an offence in
such general terms as will embrace a
variety of. circuinsLsnces a general description though pursuant to the words
of the act is insufficient.
After full agreement the decision of the
Court was that the Conviction should be
quashed and the Warrant of Commitment set aside.

CANADA   AND   TBE   VNITED
STATES.
"Monotony is the curse oi existence,
and there is always a certain pleasure in
discovering u gentleman who thinks differently from bis neighbors." In Canada
proper, as iii British Columbia, we be-
lieve that a large majority ol both  mon
atid women think differently fr   thoir
neighbors across the holder, as to the
ndvisubility of Canada and the United
States pooling their separate Interests,
and taking each other lor better or tor
worse.  Allowing that there is very much
to be said on the side ul' tho A -xalion-
ists, yet we think that upon calm con
elderation tho com. have il. Wc know
well, that there is far more than n mere
suspicion ot truth iu the remarks one .-
frequently hears made, as to the way ii
which both British Columbia and
Eastern Canada would forge ahead, it
American enterprise and American
capital were to Hood the country, as they
would of course do in the event of the
Dominion becoming an integral part of
the United States. Admitting this, there
is yet another side to the question. I lur
territory is of such vast extent, with interests so wide und various, that in comparison with the number of representative* from the United States, we fear that
those of Canada, with her scanty population, would be as tt drop in the bucket.
We further contend thut tt country such
as would be a conjoined United Slates
and Canada, would contain all the elements of disintegration within itself. The
interests of the "trapper" in the far
north, would not be those of the Sugnr
planter in Alabama—nor could there of
necessity be uny.grcat bond oi union between tbe dweller, say in Prince Edward's Island, und the inhabitants of
.Southern California. We maintain there
is room enough for two great nations  in
the northern half ni Ai 'ita, and  that
the weaker of the two is the more likely
to prosper by retaining her individuality,
so to speak, than liy sinking herself in
the great Republic. The San Francisco
Argonaut as well as Eastern papers, have
from time to time, mooted tlie question
ol buying the Dominion, so us to quash
all chance of further disagreements
arising, such us the Fisheries dispute,
and the Behring Sea quarrel.
This has doubtless u very iui
posing sound, hut there ure other
things to be taken into consideration in
most really great questions besides dollars and cents. Where nations are concerned, there is a subtle Influence at
work—none the less powerful because
unseen—culled sentiment. This feeling
we believe is, on the part of Canada, adverse to the overtures recently made bv
the United States. So far as Great
Britain is concerned, we know by the repeated assurances of both living and
dead statesmen, that the day when
Canada expresses a wish "to set up on
ber own account/' she (Great Britain)
will throw no obstacle in her way, but
will merely quietly withdraw her Governor, and ber ships of war. The rebellion
of the United States taught Great Britain
a" lesson sho is never likely to forget. It
was a severe and a humiliating one, but
it sank the deeper for its severity. Such
a mistake as trying to coerce one of her
Colonies will never again be made by the
country which quaintly enough, even
every native-born Australian refers to us
"home." Wc repeal that we believe
it is not to the advantage of Canada thai
she should become a part of the United
States—and also that the vast majority
of Canadians think with us upon this
matter, whether they are Canadian by
birth or by choice. Howsoever our country may decide upon tli ist great issue in
the future, we know that Great Britain
will exercise no interference in the
matter, but will probably say iu effect, if
interrogated, as she said to Victoria
(Australia) when Sir Graham Berry the
then Premier at Melbourne, wus sent to
London to threaten Secession if the demands ofthe ultra-radical party were not
complied with by the British Government! "While regretting the alternative
which you have placed before us, yet the
matter is one us to the advisability of
which, you must yourselves he- the
judges."
ho wonder, thai uc should write thai
which will not altogether please eithei
-i'i,-. we can only say lhal tin- sooner the
pn ■- ceases to Ik1 a power in tie- land the
better. It is an easy matter for a self-
constituted and irresponsible judge to
pas- sentence, but we distinctly refuse Io

LIQUOR LICENSES,
We have been informed that an article
which appeared in our issue of Sunday
morning, beaded "Liquor Licenses," was
the subject of severe criticism from the
pnlpit of tbe Scotch church in this town
on the evening of the day of issue. We
learn from notes taken down at the time,
and which have been handed to us for
perusal, that il was charged against us
that we luul alienated the support of the
total abstainer, und thai we bad failed at
the same time to win over the "liquor
interest" liy the publication of tlie article
in question. Once for all let our renders
understand, be they priest or petifbgger,
that we sny that which we believe lo be
true. We bold that it is nol the province of a newspaper to ''run with Ihe
hare and bunt with the hounds." In the
article in question, we bud no intention
. of currying favor cither with the Prohibitionist or the hotel-keeper, but merely
to say—in a most indifferent and halting
manner we fear—that which our convictions on this mutter prompted us to say.

THE   INFLUENCfc'   OF   THINGS.
ME VALUE OF PURE AIR.
yVHY   SOME   PEOPLE  SUFFER   FROM
HEADACHE   AND   NAUSEA.
Unpleasant Sensation, the Result of a Lack
of Ventilation—Tlio Destroying Element,
Impure Air, Continually Supping Our
lit* Blood.
The atmosphere we breathe has in ita
natural state a nearly uniform composition of oxygen, nitrogen, carbonio acid
and watery vapor. It is conceded that
In each inspiration four cubic inches hi
taken into tbo lungs, one-half of which
disappears in tlio act of inspiration This
consumption of oxygen ls greater when
the temperature is low than when it is
high, and during digestion it is greater
than when tho stomach is empty.
Biding in the steam and horso cars, wo
are compelled to breatho not only the air
from people's lungs, but the exhalations
from their skins and clothing. Fancy
riding in tho steam cars for a long distance in winter time, with two largo
stoves heated almost red hot with anthracite coul, in a spneo say of 15 feot
wide and 10 feet high. This spaco will
contain about eighty people, and is
closely shut up. Every one knows the
stove uses up oxygen with great rapidity,
and what is left is breathed over and
over again by tlio people, who are giving
out from their lungs constantly a gas utterly unfit to be breathed.
Is it any wonder headache and nausea
steal over them? They must either sit in
a draught or enduro the poison, as tho
ventilators are not enough to carry off
the foul air.
IN THE SCHOOL HOUSE.
Visit some school houses after a walk
In the fresh air and the odor is something
disgusting. These unpleasant sensations
come from want of greater ventilation.
Here again the air is vitiated by the
breaths, clothing; many of the pupils
scarcely know the luxury of a good bath
and plenty of clean underclothing. Now,
can the air bo anything but bad under
BUch circumstances? If the windows aro
opened long the teacher and children
take cold, and some oro afraid and think
they cannot stand the smallest breath of
fresh air.
A schoolroom 80 feet square and 8 feet
high contains 7,200 feet of cubic air.
This room will seat sixty pupils. Allowing ten cubio feet of air to each pupil
per minute, all the air in the room will
be vitiated in twelve minutes. Now,
granting that every means is used regarding ventilation, and a goodly supply
af soap and water to scrub tho floors instead of sweeping. A recess of five minutes ought to be given every hour, so
that the children could move about, havo
the windows and doors wido open, and
let them breathe in freely the pure air of
'liituro, to repair their mental and physical condition.
Effects are proportioned to causes, and
if an atmosphere filled with 5 per cent,
of carbonic acid will produce death in a
few minutes, what must be tbo effect of
breathing for ten, twenty or forty years
the muoh smaller proportion which must
be present in overy inhabited room whero
there is not a constant incoming and outgoing of air? It must and docs lower tbo
standard of health and shorten our lives.
Let a person who is in good health, with
a sound nasal organ, tako a brisk walk
in tho open air, then como at once into
tho inhabited room, and if thero ia any
unpleasant odor the air of that room is
hurtful.
How many dwellings, sitting rooms or
bedrooms would pass such an ordeal in
the early morning after being occupied
all night?
A LITTLJ GOOD ADVICES.
Bad air being heavy always sinks to
tlie floor, and to be got rid of must be
drawn from the floor, either by open fireplaces or some means of ventilation. A
room 10 by 12 by 13 contains 1,440 cubio
feet of air, the available oxygen of which
Is used up by one person in half an hour.
What to breatho then becomes the great
question, especially for persons unacquainted with tho only way of producing good health and long life. Breath is
our life—more to us than food. Breathe
pure fresh air day and night. You cannot get too much of it. Fresh air is the
one mighty disinfectant. It certainly is
Its own purifier; nothing can take the
place of pure ventilation.
We suffer most in winter for want of
ventilation; the outside cold makes us
close all the apertures in the rooms,
while in summer tho heat makes us open
all the doors and windows. I think it
preferable from my standpoint to have
less heat In the rooms, to air them every
two hours, to get rid of the furnace
gases, and in the evenings to get away
with the deadly carbon from our gas
jets. Let cleanliness be the watchword
In every home, from attlo to cellar.
Keep plenty of disinfectants around the
washbowls and water closets. In damp
collars keep charcoal always. It is simple and cheap. Let In the blessed sunlight everywhere you can. Never mind
the fading of furniture or carpets; better than that our lives and those of our
children be the forfeit.
Sunshine not only gladdens our hearts,
but it steals into the corners and makes
the auri-ouudluu.. pure. Wbon, syriahhio
enters, every room will bo healthy. Get
the musty odor out of your offices,
stores, every place of business. Better
stand cold air than breathe slow death,
live In open air all you can. Take a
brisk walk countrywards every day.
Qo to the hill tops, but remember "Clod
breathed into your nostrils the breath of
life." So learn to keep your mouths
closed. "Hs a good thing to practice.
Breathe through your nose at ail times,
aa mouth breathing is only an acquired
habit and brings thousands of evils.—Boston Globe,

A Woman's Whole   Mfe Waa  Changed by
a Red  Hat with a Hull  Red   Plume.
There was onco a ludy, sober in mind
and sedate in manner, whose plain dress
exactly represented her desire to be inconspicuous, to do good, to improve
overy day of her lifo in actions that
should benefit her kind. She was a serious person, inclined to improving conversation, to tho reading of bound books
that cost at least a dollar and a half (fifteen
cents of which she gladly contributed to
tbe author), nnd she had a distaste for
tho gay society whicli was mainly a flutter of ribbons and talk and pretty faces;
and when sho meditated, as sho did in
her spare moments, her heart was sore
over the frivolity of life and tho emptiness of fashion. She lunged to make the
world better, and without any priggish-
ness she set it un example of simplicity
and Bobriety, of cheerful acquiescence in
plainness and inconspieuousness.
Ono day, it was In the autumn, this
lady had occasion to buy a new hat.
From a great number offered to her she
selected a red one with a dull red plume.
It did not agree with the rest of her apparel; it did not tit hor apparent character. What impulse led to this selection
sho could not explain. Sho was not
tired of being good, but something in tbe
jauntiness of tho hat and the color
pleased ber. If it wero a temptation she
did not intend to yield to it, but she
! thought slin would tako the hat homo
[ and try it. Perhaps her naturo felt the
need of a littlo warmth. The bat pleased
her still moro wben sho got it home and
put it on and surveyed herself in tho
mirror. Indeed, thero was a new expression in her faco that corresponded to
the hat. She put it off and looked at it.
Thero was something almost humanly
winning and temptations in it. In short,
j she kept it, and when she wore it abroad
she was not conscious of its incongruity
to herself or to her dress, but of tho incongruity of the rest of her apparel to
tho hat, whioh seemed to havo a sort of
intelligence of its own, at least a power
of changing and conforming things to
itself. By degrees ono article after
another hi the lady's wardrobe was laid
aside and another substituted for it answered to the demanding spirit of the
hat.
In a littlo while this plain lady was not
plain any moro, but most gorgeously
dressed and possessed with the desire to
bo in tbe height of the fashion. It came
to this that she had a tea gown made out
of a window curtain with a flamboyant
pattern. Solomon in all his glory would
have been ashamed of himself in her
presence.
But this was not all. Her disposition,
her ideas, her whole lifo were changed.
Sho did not any moro think of going
about doing good, but of amusing herself. Sho read nothing but stories in
paper covers. In place of being sedate
nnd 6ober minded sho was frivolous to
excess; she spent most of her time with
women who liked to "frivol." She kept
Ia3nt in tho most expensive way, so as to
mako tho impression upon everybody
that sho was better than tbe extremest
kind of Lent. From liking tho sedatest
company she passed to liking tho gayest
society and the most fusbionablo method
of getting rid of her timo. Nothing
wbatevor had happened to lier, and sho
is uow an ornament to society.—Charles
Dudley Warner In Harper's,
Living in Talis.
Of living in Paris outside of a hotel I
know but Uttle, except that a gentleman
who has spent a great deal of timo hero
and seen a good deal of society said to
me that in no city can one livo so absolutely as he pleases as in Paris and still
Iio respectable and fashionable. It was
some timo beforo New Yorkers took
kindly to modern flats, with their possible, improvement and convenience.
High life of that kind wns not to their
taste. But here you find tho best people
living upon some narrow street, and you
■limb up flight and flight of winding
stairs until the fourth and fifth and
sometimes the sixth stago ls reached,
whero you stop to breathe and wonder
how any American could have pitched
his tent so high.
But once inside the tent your wonder
ceases, or rather takes anothor channel,
as you find yourself In the large, airy
and handsomely furnished rooms where
90 many of our people livo quite as comfortable and with far less care than they
can at home. "I would not go back to
America again, with all the worries of
housekeeping, for the world," I heard a
lady say,whUe her companion, fresh from
Iho worries of American housekeeping,
was ready to tako them again, and would
uot stay here for oil the world. And so
opinions differ. But of tbo two I think
the Parisian housekeeper bos tho best of
it, with better servants, smaller wages
and so many troublesome things done
outside—no washing or ironing, for this
Is done by the lanchlsseuse, and no bread-
making, for the bakers furnish all that,
and of an excellent kind, too.—Cor.
Springfield Republican.
An Hour'. Snooze.
During cold weather some of the
paupers resort to some very odd tricks to
get into some houso whero they can
warm their chilled bodies by the generous beat from a fire or steam register.
Tho other Sunday, wben it was quite
ooia, 11 middle aged man of scraggy
beard, unkempt hair, wearing worn out
boots and seedy coat and ragged pantaloons, and presenting a most repulsive
and dirty appearance, entered the door
of St. John's Methodist church quietly,
and took n seat near tho roar part of tho
room. When the congregation struck
up a hymn tho miserable tramp joined
In the singing with apparently as good
time as auy of the choristers. It was at
first supposed that he had drifted in to
hear the Gospel expounded—and may bo
tie did—but after reclining his head on
the seat during prayer, he fell asleep and
slept soundly during the entire sermon.
Be didn't bear any Gospel expounded,
it least, and somo people were cynical
enough to say that he bad entered tho
rhurcb for no other reason than to get
> snug, warm corner, whero ho could
ileop for an hour.—St. Louis Globe-

The Way He Got a PuhlUher for Hit
Book—Taking HI. Spite Out -111. Regard fur Livingstone and How He Displayed  It—He Paid Cash  for HI. Dinner.
The following facts concerning Henry
11. Stanley have never been in print
They wero given to me by William Bradford, the marine artist and Arctic explorer.
In the year 1873 Mr. Bradford, returned from his Greenland explorations,
was in London publishing his sumptuous
volume on "The Arctic Regions." It
was brought out under the patronage of
Queen Victoria at $125 per copy. At
this timo he met Stanley, who was In a
towering rage.
"He was just back," said tbe artist,
"from finding Livingstone, and was now
very angry at the cavalier way in whicli
he had been treated about publishing his
book through Murray It seems that
John Murray was away, and the partner
present had received Stanley quite nonchalantly, and said he was not quite sure
whether they could publish his book or
not, and, anyway, nothing could bo done
about it until Mr. Murray's return. 1
said to him, 'Mr. Stanley, are you particular to have Murray publish your
book?' 'No.' 'Well, 1 can tell you of
some very good publishers, who, I think,
would bo glad to publish it, and that is
llio firm of Sampson, Low & Co. They
ure publishing my book, and, 1 think,
would be glad to get bold of yours. If
you wish, I will seo them about it.' 'Do
so, Mr. Bradford; I'll be glad to have
you.'
A LIBERAL PUBLISHER.
"Sol went down and saw Mr. Mar-
ston, of the firm, and said to him, 'Mr.
Marston, would you like to publish
Stanley's new book on Africa?' 'Yes,
sir, indeed we would; but I thought
Murray was going to have it.' 'No, 1
guess not. Would you like to see Mr.
Stanley?" 'Certainly, sir.' 'Very well,
I'll bring bim down this afternoon.' As
1 was going out he said, 'Mr. Bradford,
do you suppose that Mr. Stanley is ready
to consider an offer for his book?' '1
think so, sir.'
"I took Stanley down to see them, and
Mr. Marston asked him if he was prepared to consider an offer then and thero
'Yes, sir.' 'Well, Mr. Stanley, we will
givo you ""10,000 for it, and a liberal
share of the profits.'
" 'I'll do it,1 said Stanley. And a hap
pier man you've seldom seen. 'Now,
Mr. Stanley,' said Mr. Marston, 'when
can you begin to furnish us copy!* 'Tomorrow morning, sir, and every day
thereafter till it's done.' 'Just one word
more, Mr. Stanley. Will you please say
nothing about this for four weeks? I've
a. special reason for asking.' 'Yes, sir;
that suits me,' said Stanley. And so
the bargain was closed, and Sampson
Low & Marston have been Stanley's
publishers ever since.
"A few weeks later Stanley wont in
to seo John Murray, and the following
conversation occurred: 'Mr Murray, I've
come to see about your publishing my
book. Do you wish to?" 'Yes, I think
that we may be able to, Mr. Stanley.
But wo cannot afford to give you much
for it, as it Is a kind of experiment. But
we'll publish it, Mr. Stanley.'
" 'No you won't,' broke In Stanley,
v, ith an oath, and, turning on his heel,
left the great English publisher astounded
at the young African explorer's audacity.
EASY CHAIR aEOORAPHEKS.
"On another occasion," says Mr. Bradford, "I was sitting at a great banquet
of the British association at Brighton.
It was in the evening after the 'African
afternoon,' so called. Stanley had been
down for a speech late In the afternoon,
after several English geographers had
spoken. But I noticed during the second
speech, by Mr. 0. R. Markham, of the
Royal Geographical society, that Stanley's wrath was rising. The speaker, in
alluding to Livingstone, had iiist said a
word reflecting upon him. As soon as
Markham was done, Stanley, at two
bounds, was in the center of the platform, and leaning forward and stretching
out his forefinger with concentrated scorn
toward Markham, began: 'You easy chair
geographers, sitting on your cushioned
velvet carpets, what do you know about
it? Livingstone, after a long, arduous,
perilous march, says: "I think I have
found the sources of tbe Nile." But you,
from the seclusion of your libraries, declare: "We know that he has not.1'
What right bavo you to decide such a
question?* And then be gave it to them
hot And yet in fifteen minutes he had
them all, ladies and gentlemen, on their
feet crying, 'Hear, hear, heart' The
Baroness Burdett-Coutts waved her
handkerchief, and even the Emperor
Napoleon, who was present with the
Empress Eugenic, arose and handed
Stanley their card. I tell you, Stanley
was the most scathing man I ever listened to when he was mad over Livingstone.
"So, in the evening, before going to
the banquet, I said to him: 'Now, Stanley, keep your temper. Don't disgrace
yourself. Don't say a word to-night.'
For I knew thi. vpry Markham vroa go
ing to preside Well, Stanley promised
that he wouldn't say a] word. But they
placed him at Markham's right hand. I
sat across the tablo where I could see
him. Pretty soon I noticed that ho and
Markham wero talking earnestly. Then
the bulldog look camo into Stanley's
face. And then ho jumped up and off he
went.
"It seemed that Markham had urged
him to speak, but Stanley had declined,
when the following conversation ensued;
'But, Mr. Stanley, you raustspeak. That
Is the purpose for which they invited
you here.' 'Is that the reason they invited me here?' 'Certainly, Mr. Stanley;
wo expect you to favor us with a speech.'
'Well, I won't But' — thrusting his
hand deep into his pocket—'here's a
guinea for my dinner.' And off he
stalked in a towering rage."—Rev, F. H.
Kasson in Christian Union.
Ili-UL  lluttle with a Buck.
P.t'fiire tlie country surrounding Hock
I Island. Ills., was as  thickly settled as it
1 is now, it  waa  a pretty  good  hunting
ground,  and   even  now  an   occasional
j deer  is to bo seen  at a distance.    Whilo
I a writer was traveling  on a Rock Island
train ilast September,   a  big  buck,   en-
i tangled in a barb wire  fence, near Tur-
: key Hollow, eight miles from   the town.
! attracted  the attention of the   patten-
I gers.    When Taylor station, a short distance away, was reached, a party   waE
I made up to go after  the quarry   whicli
I was held   fast  by   the  fence.     Station
j Agent Mudge secured a hatchet, his only
available  weapon,   and.   jumping on  u
band  car, sited  to  the  spot  where the
buck was held captive.    Full of confidence Mudge advanced   nearer with upraised   hatchet    to   givo   the   finishing
stroko nt the center of the head.
Warily watching the opportune moment, down came the hatchet with powerful force, but by 11 ipiick, slight movement of tho deer nt the same instant the
blow bit the side uf the head, and so
astonished tho affrighted animal that it

The Bear Took Possession of the Car.
Express Messenger George Engle, ol
the Southern company, had a close call
in a desperate struggle with a big two-
thirds grown black bear in his car last
night between this city and Nashville.
Se looks about the legs andarmsas if he
had gone through a threshing machine,
and is laid up for repairs. Said he: "My
run is from Nashville to Montgomery
and the car is a through one. When I
got on at Nashville I noticed we had
aboa a big black bear, but he seemed
to be m a stout cage or crate and I paid
no further attention to liim. He was
billed from some place in Dakota to New
Orleans. I was in the car myself.
Everything wont along all right,
and I busied myself with my
duties at my shelf until about 11
o'clock at night. This eido of Decatur,
allot a sudden I heard a crash behind,
and beforo I could turn around the brute
had me by tho left leg. I was jerked
to the floor. In my full I reached for a
a heavy pleco of boxing lying in my
reach and I and that bear had it The
now thoroughly enraged brute bit and
clawed me in a terriblo manner, but 1
pounded him over the head with all my
might I regained my feet, and finally
succeeded In running tho animal Into a
comer behind some boxes. I piled others
before him and kept him there. No, I'm
not dangerously hurt, but my plaster bill
will cost me about $5. If it had been &

Her First Telegram.
"Be sure to telegraph me as soon as
you arrive," said a young husband to bis
bride at the Broad Street station yesterday. She was starting on her first trip
home to see her mother. Her mothei
lives about ten miles out.
"I will," promised the young wife
sweetly; "but I don't know whether I
have money enough."
"Oh, send it 'collect.' Now don't forget   Good-by."
"Good-by."
"Good-by."
The young husband gazed longingly
after the train as it steamed out, and
then he sadly returned to his placo of
business. In half an hour a messenger
boy presented tho following:

Tlie Two Kinds <>f Death.
The Medical News lias an article upon
•esuscitation after death whicli, if extensively read by the laity, is sure to occasion doubt and anxiety in the minds of
many persons, After showing that two
kinds of death—somatic und cellular—
.ako place before life has completely
faded from the body to be recalled, the
irticle points out the importance of
physicians properly distinguishing between tbetw-o and renewing or abandoning tlieir elTorts at resuscitation  as cir-
- ^instances direct. Somatic death may
be briefly described ns the failure of the
■ main organs of the body, the brain, heart
ind lungs, to perform their functions,
whilo cellular death is where the cells or
: tissues of the body die    Both may occur
I at the same time, but the writer urges,
i tho former may tako place without the
latter, and often does, and in ull such
cases thero is a chance of resuscitating
tho dead person until cellular death supervenes.
Authentic instances of such resusclta-
tation arc given— among others, tho case
, of a man whose body remained at the
bottom of a shallow stream for fully half
un hour before it was taken out. Ho was
resuscitated after several hours of unremitting labor Rut ti moro remarkable
caso was that vouched for by Professor
Armor.    A   friend  of his died from In-
i dlau hemp poisoning. Tlio physician
racked Ilia brain for more than an hour
for somo means of restoring his friend to
life whilo ho lay dead in his presence,
and nt length called to his aid a sturdy
negro. They worked manfully for four
hours. During all that time there was
not the slightest sign of lifo, but at its
! expiration a slight movement of the lips
was detected, and the stethoscope disclosed "an occasional light, muffled
sound over tho heart.' Their efforts
'were doubled, with the result that respiration and circulation were very slowly
! re-established and consciousness returned
after many hours.    Thu man lived for
; many years afterward—indeed, up toa
few years ago, and was 11 prominent New
England banker.—New Orleans Picayune. 	
Prizes for Scientific Works.
The Royal Academy of Sciences of
Turin, in accordance with the last will
and testament of Dr. Cesare Alessandro
Bressa, and in conformity with tho pro-
grame published Dec. 7, 1870, announces
that the term for competition for scientific works and discoveries made in tho
four previous years, 1885-88, to which
only Italian authors und inventors
were entitled, was closed on Dec. 81,
1888. The academy now gives notice
that from Jan. 1, 1880, the new term for
competition for tho seventh Bressa prize
has begun, to which, according to the
testator's will, scientific men and inventors of all nations will bu admitted. A
prize will, therefore, bo given to tbe scientific author or inventor, whatever be
his nationality, who, during the years
1889-90, "according to tho judgment of
the Royal Academy of Sciencesof Turin,
shall havo made tbo most important and
useful discovery or published tho most
valuable work on physical and experimental science, natural history, mathematics, chemistry, physiology, pathology, as well as geology, history,
geograpli^and statistics." Tho term
will bo closed at tho end of December, 1890. Tho value of tho prize
amounts to 12,000 Italian lire ($2,000).
.*.io prize will in no case be given to any
of the national members of tho Academy
of Turin, resident or non-resident.—Scientific American.

drawn up sho repeated her question,
making sure at the same time that tho
clerk would not treat her us on the last
occasion by inserting her basket in the
aperture. The clerk, now irritated by
her persistence, answered iu a more dignified manner than ever, upon which tho
old woman, eyeing him steadily, said:
"Div' ye ken fa ye min' mo 0'?" "No,"
said tho clerk, drawing himself up to his

that ho bore a striking resemblance to

Ill' Curried a Ra'/nr.
Quite a serious cutting affray took place
on the Bteamer Princess Louise mi Thursday night, when that vessel bad arrived
at the Capital.   It appears that a dispute
arose between llu- male and one nf the
deck hands, who was inclined to be rebellions, the latter refusing to go about bis
duty.   He. was in a  very obstreperous
imd* (inurreltjoiuc state,  bavins  imbibed
his full quota of whiskey.   On the mate
endeavoring to oblige bim to attend tu
his work,'ho drew a knife, and made a
dash at tbe mate, wounding him badly in
the   hand and  bodv.    Seem;,'   that   the
mate was iu danger nf his life, another of
the deck bands, a man who came here on
tbe barque Sunbeam, tried tu Intervene
when a "pal" of ihe uguressive deck
hand, who was likewise the  worse  for
liquor, jumped up, ran fin' hisraz.n-, and,
coming back, Inflicted a terrible gash  in
Midlers lef. The gash was uver 7 Inches
in length and through In tin- bone,    Vernon, the fiend wln> did the cutting ill
Midler's ease,   was   secured   before   be
could do any further Injury,   ('apt. Bud-
lin was called and immediately ordered
that Dr. Jones be sent for.    On Ihe Doe-
tor's arrival the wounds were carefully
dressed and the unfortunate men sent to
the Royal  Hospital.     Dr. Jones stated
tbat bad  Midler's  wound  been  only a |
shade lower down nothing on earth could
have saved him from bleeding to death.
Brady and Vernon,  who did the cutting,
are under control, and no doubl ihe utmost penalty of the law will he deall on!
to them.
An incident in connection with the
cutting affray is worthy of mention. AI
dog, belonging to J. Moore, baggage
master, noticing the noise made came in
the scene of the light. This dog bad been
in the habit of receiving its food from
Turnbull the mate, and, with the natural
sagacity of his speeies, took Turnbull'S
part in the light. The fiend who was doing the cutting suddenly swooped round
and wounded the dog badly before again
stieking the knifo into his opponent. The
animal, however, did its best for Turn-
bull until tbe fight was over. Who will
dispute the fact that the dumb animal
was in every way superior to the one
called n man.— World.
A lieturn ol' Murders-.
Mr. Powell-Williams moved in August
last for a return of all eases in various
parts of the United Kingdom where murders had heen committed during the two
years 1880 and 1886 respectively, In
England, Wales, and Ireland tbe verdict
of a coroner's jury was sufficient to bring
the case within the return ; in Scotland
the reports of the Procurator Fiscal to
the Fiscal Agent were to he taken. All
the details connected with each crime of
this nature are set forth in a Parliamentary paper now published. Tbe summary shows that Ihe verdicts returned
and the cases reported in 1880 were—in
England and Wales, 145, iu 1888, 162; in
Ireland 18 nnd 24; and in Scotland ::A
and 17. This makes a total for 1880 of
189, and for 1888 of 11)3.

assailed by a-vile stench, and while not
wishing to prejudice the ease to come

to spread typhoid and various oilier diseases. Nothing hut the strong arm of the

The Cily Clerk said that Mr. McDonald had complained before.

catch as tbey could walk the top rail oi a
