Thoro does not nppoar to bo nnv cause for

Tho Eouud of two rovolver shots was
heard. A cow crossing a field fifty paces
away recoivod a bullet in tho spine.
That cow was an Innocent victim. Like
Eyieotators at a not she bad fared worso tban
The contending adversaries were tux
touched. Who wero those adversaries?
All that could bo gathorod from their ap
pearauco was that tho older was an English,
man and tho younger an American. The

Niagara llivcr, about threo miles below tho
falls and not far from the bridge which
unites the opposite shoies.
The Englishman crossed over to the Amer

"It was 'Yankee Doodlo,"' roplied tho
The quarrol was about to commence again,
hen one of tbe seconds interposed, saying:
" Lot us put it ' ltulo Doodlo ' and ' Yan
o Britaunia,' and go to breakfast." This
ompromise between tbe national airs of
America and Groat Britain was adopted, to
1 e general satisfaction of nil concernod, and
Americans and English crossed tho bridgo

; Who was right-the Englishman or the
American f It would prove a difficult matter
for any one to docide this question. But at
all evonts the duel showed a phase of tbo
excitement that was existing not only on tho
now, but on tho old continent as well, con
cerning an inexplicable phenomenon which
during tbo month past has baffled all attempts
Never since tho appcaranco of man on tbo

On the night preceding tho encounter just

of the inhabitants had heard " Yankee Doo

from this bad arisen the Anglo-American
quarrel which had just ended in tho break
fast at Goat Island.
Perhaps it had been neither of these patri
otic airs, but it was undoubtedly tbe note of
a trumpet, and possessed a striking sigularity
from tbe fact that tho sound came from the
sky towards tho earth.
Could it possibly have been a celestial
trumpet soundod by an angol or an arch
angel, or was it a party of happy aeronauts
who amused themselves by blowing sonorous
blasts over the wondering world ?
No, it was neither angel nor aeronaut. An

Somo of tho membors of tbo Comley Opera
Company, which started out a fow woeks ago
with tho intention of competing with tho
travelling Casino organization, appear to bo
in high dudgeon. Tho tour has stopped after
ouo wook iu Baltimoro and another in Fhila
dolphia. Hero is tho harrowing story told
yesterday by ono of tho ladies of tho com
pany: " Whon wo wero about to loavo I'hila
dolphin," alio said, "I met Mr. Comley at
the depot. I hadn't had a penny of my sal.
ary aud I couldn't get my trunk from the
hotel without paying my board bill. I
said to him : ' Mr. Comloy, I'm in hock ;
what shall I do ?' Bald ho s ' My dear
child, get right onto tho train aud
I'll sco that yon got your trunk all
right.' I followed his advice, and in duo
courso arrived iu this city. I waited for my
trunk. It did not come. A couple of days
ago I received it, with on attachment of $20
to pay for my board at tho Windsor Hotel,
Philadelphia, and $1.00 for freight. I could
only got the trunk upon tbe payment of tho

was obliged to lot it go back, and there, 1 sup
pose, it still is. Iu tho lueau time I am with
out a chango of clothes, and I supposo by
tbo time the trunk ccmos on again there will
bo anothor $!.&0 to pay. It beams to me that
this is tbo very latest phaso of managerial
occentriclty. I bavo written to Mr. Comley
soveral times, and he has nevor even noticed

It is said that Mrs. Frances Hodgson
Burnott is dramatizing " Little 8t. Eliza

which appeared in ono of the monthly
John F. Harley, late of "Tho Paymaster,"
is going to devote his mauagorial ability to
tho travelling "Swctt Lavender" company.
Nat Chllds, Miss Mlnnio Palmer's business
manager, told a good Bt'ory yesterday. " In
ante-bellum days," ho said, ' thore was a big
cang of toughs that used to infest Baltimore.
It was their custom to present themselves at
tho theatro, and if tho gatekeeper rrlused ad
mittance, to slug him. So the unfortunato
man always used to carofully examine the
muscles of tho arms of those who came to tbo
gate beforo be decided to exorcise his author
ity. On one occasion a rather dudisb-lookiug
youth appeared and declared that bo must bo
allowed in. Tho galckoeper looked at his
arm critically and then carefully felt tho
muscle. 'Young man,' ho said, 'you ran
como In on tho farco, but you are not strong
enough for the tragedy.' "
Hore is another good story. This was told
by Uilmnre Hcott. "Somo time ago I was
travelling in Vermont with a ' Hazel Kirko'
company, hi which I played tho comedy part
ol Fitlaoim Green. At ono theatre iu which
wo played I noticed that there was a woman

sumo woman in a sleigh with a com
paniou. She was nobly dresbed in
sealskin aud diamonds. As soon
as sho saw mo sho stopped the sleigh,
and leaning back, burst into laughter. Then
she drove on. My curiosity wan aroused.
When I went back to tho hotel where I was
stopping I (juestioued tho clerk as to her
identity, and described her ry minutely.
Ho had no difficulty in satisfying mo. ' That
lady,' ho said ' is Miss 11. She is tho daugh

como out of a lunatic asylum. In fact, I
beard that yesterday was tho first time sho

republics were beginning to be alarmed and
If you were to bear in your own house
strange and inexplicable noises you would at

abandon your house and dwell in another.
But in this case tho house was the terrestrial
globe, and we possess no moans of leaving it
for tho moon, Mars. Venus, Jupiter or any
othor planet of the solar system. All that re
mained was to discover what unusual occur

but in tbo atmospheric zonos surrounding

at a distance of three hundred million leagues,
wero unable to explain tho origin of a cosmio
phenomenon within the radius of a few miles
of what uso wero astronomers?
It would be impossible to estimate tho
number of eyes that during those beautiful
Sumruer nights wero eagerly scanning tho
heavens through telescopes, field-glasses,
lorgnettes and evory other optical Instrument
as yot Invented. Never bad even an eclipse
been greotod witb so imposing a spectacle. Tbo
observatorlos replied, but Insufficiently. Each
of them gave a different opinion, and a scien
tific war waged during the hut week of

April and the first of Slay. The observatory
of Paris exhibited considerablo reserve aud
none of the sections pronounced on tho
problem. Iu tbe buioau of mathematical
astronomy they disdained to consider it; in
that of morldian opeiatious nothing was dis
covered, aud from tbe departments of
meteorology and geodesy no light could bo
gained. In fact, among all these scientists
not ono would declare himself capable of
throwing light on tbe subject. They at least
Tho nows from tho provinces was a littlo
moro affirmative. During tho night from tho
Cth to tbe Tth ot May there had appeared u
light, of presumable electrio origin, tho dura
tion of which was about tw enty seconds. At
Picsu-Midi this light was seen bctwoen tho
hours of nino and ton in tho evening. At tho
motoorological obsorvatory of l'uy.do.Donuo
they perceived it about ouo or two in tho
moiniug; at Mont Ventoux, iu Proveuco, be
tw cou two and threo o'clock: at Nice, botwocu
three and four, and In Scuinoz Alps, at Anuccy,
it showed itself just as day was breaking. It
was impossible to reject tbeso numerous ob
servations, and tho fact was established that
tho light had, during succcssno hours, boen
obsen cd from tho diflorent posts. Whothor
this light was the focus of numerous roilec
tions crossing tho terrestrial atmesphoro, or
whether it was a single product, it possessed
the power of moving with a rapidity of over
two milos an hour.
But had nothing abnormal been obsorved
in the air in the daytimo?
Nothing, The trumpet at least might have
been heard through tho strata of air, but,
strange to say, between tho rifling r.ud sottlug
of the Bun it was silent.
In Great Britain evory ono was perplexed
and the observatories were unablo to agroe.
Greenwich had heard the blast, Oxford had
seen tho light, but they both asserted that
"It was nothing."
