Abotit 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
some inmates of the teneuent house,
To. 106 Desneey street, heard sev-.
eral pistol shots and a noiso which
they guessed to bo that of a scufIle
between two men in the bpck room on
the top floor of the loudie, :ad at
once sent word to the teenth precinct
station house, in E ldridge street, of
the occurrence. Officers Henken
and Hughes were dispatched to the

did so, somo heavy obstacle. Upon
stepping into the room a ghastly
spectacle met his view. There he
beheld two men
lying on the floor, each grasping
firmly in his right han.l a Colt's re
volver. The officers at once began
to examine the bodies. One was
that of a man about forty-three years
of age, and five feet six inches in
height, quite well dressed in daik
clothes. This man had fallen with
his knees against the door opening
on the hall, and was bleeding pro
fusely from a terrible pistol shot,
wound in his right temple, the blood
completely covering his face and
head. He was insensible, but not
dead. The pistol clasped in his
hand was foun-1 to have boon dis
charged four times. It was subse
quently ascertained that his name
was Moses Piskiel. The other man,
Joseph Goldman, who appeared to
be somewhat younger and smaller
than Fiskiel, was lying on his back
in front of the stove, not six feet
from Piskiel, dead, though his bo-ly
was still warm. Two frightful
wounds were seen on his heid, one
over the right temple and one over
his right cheek. HI 'head was al
and he, too, was bleeding when the
officer arrived. It was with diflioul
ty that the pistol was released from
his death grip, and when it was ex
aininel it was found to have been
fired five times. There was so much
blood. on ti floor, which was bare,
that it began to soak through, and
soon became visible on the ceiling
of the room beneath. Officer Hughes
irnniodia .ily sent for an ambulance,
in which Piskiol was cot
voyed to the tenth precinct station
house, where he was examined, and
pronounced mortally wounded, by
Surgeon Ensign. He was then re

The Venetian story tel1q have
amalgamated "Blue Beard" with one
of Grimm's "Hausemerchen, ,nd
chaiged its ceteleIn hue to that of
the foul fiend himself. The story is
entitled "El Diavolo."
Once upon a time there was a
husband and wife, and they had
three daughters, all grown up, and
they took in washing. A! ,it hag
end a gentigman used by their
ouso ono WId in love with
he' oldest girl. He went to her
parents and asked if.they would give
her to n idr hie wife.- They' saw
that he was a handsome gentleman,
and they said yes, And he- married"
her and took hoe a* ay, und he took
hpr to the finest palace that eyes
could seo. When they got thore e
gave her the keys of all the rooms,
but he said:
"Go wherever you like, oxcept into
that a'oom there. If you go into it,
it will be the worse for ydu."
And he gave her a beautiful fresh
rose to put in her hair, and then
be rose up and went away. This
woman was curious to know what
was in that chamber that he said she
was not to go inte, so she went and
opened the door, and she saw that
there was many souls inside, all on
fire, and knew that it was hell.
"Oh I" she cried, "wha thave I done
what have. I done I For certain he'll
put me in there, too."
Then she looked at the rosein her
hair, and saw that it was qnito faded.
By-.anl-bye back comes the husbaudi
and says he : "Good morning."
He noticed that the: rose wa s faded,
mAd he knew well enough that sho
had been into the room, so lie said :
"Did you go into that room where
I told you not to go ?"
And she answorod him : "Not I,
indeed. Once you told me not to
go ; that was enough."
"Very well ; now I'll take you
myself to see it."
With that he opened the chamber
and pushed her into it. Then he
locked the door ; and what did he
do but set off to her mother, and he
told her that her daughter had been
so ill until at last she was dead, and
now that. he should like to have the
second daughter. And the mother
gave her to him.
The same story is of course re
peated with the second daughter,
and after she is disposed of in the
same manner as her sister, the devil
-who is represented as an emi
nently domeatic character-not
being able to do without a wife, he
returns a third time to the house of
the washerwoman, and demands her
last remaining daughter in marriage.
Ho obtains her from her confiding
parents, takes her home, gives her
the keys and the fresh brown rose,
and absents li uself as befQro. But
this third young lady is a match for
her husband. She is not a whit less
curious than her sisters ; but she
takes the precaution of removing the
rose from her hair before peeping
into the forbidden chamber. Of
course, she sees what her sister saw,
and sees them into the bargain.
They cry to her to hasten away, for
otherwise her husband will throw
her in there two' But, noth
ing daunted, Rho answers : "Wait a
bit. Don't be afraid. Only leave it.
to me." The master of the house
on his return finds his wife with the!
flower in her hair still fresh and
blooming Ho accepts her assuranose
that she has obeyedi him, and protest
ses an ijnboundeud affection for her.
"Well, now hark ye, old man,"
said he ; "we must think of send
ing a few things to the wash, for all
the house linen is dirty. To-mor
rowv morning I will put it all into a
chest and you must carry it to my
mother's and she'll wash it for us."
She waited till her husband went
out, and then she put a few solid
things into the chest and went and
fetched her eldest sister and put
her into the oheat two, and some,
money besides, and she said to her :
"Rlememuber when you are on the
way, if you feel him sitting the chest
down to peep into it you must ery
out: 'Mind. I'm looking at you."
And she shut up the ehest and
left it until he came baek : By-and
by home he earsie, and she sid to

this chest and carry it to my mo

He went home and went on tiptod

bed and said : "Wife, how goes it ?

With that he pulled the cover

He ran into the other room to see
if the two sisters were there still,
and found them gone toe. Upon
this the devil fell Into touch a patsion
that he got a fit of the bile, and that
killed him. And so you see. as the
saying is, women are a match for the

Judge Jones, Maitor of ' the Ar
kansas State Grange, while in New
England, inspecting the proo5s of
cotton manufacture which has ad
ded so much to the wealth of that
section, wrote back home, strongly
urging the estAblishment of the cot,
ton mills. His suggestions are as
applicable to South Carolina as to
Arkansas.-He says :
"Five hundred pounds of raw cot
ton, put into bunch yarn, in worth
$100 more than the amount of cot
ton, and manufacturers tell me that
about one-half of the increased value
is net profit. Ten mills in Lowell,
with their boasted water power, use
500,000 tons of' coal pqr annum,
worth $8.50 per ton-in Little Rock,
1 believe, it is worth $8.50. Labor,
land, living-everything, ini fact, is
dearer than with us. I have told
the manufacturers of New England
that we couldi'no longer grow cotton
for their mills at the prices that have
ruled in late years ;that it would
bankrupt our people ; that we should
have to manufacture all we could,
and that our cotton passed throuwh
the hanmde 9f, too many commissi1
morebpytA between tas -'and thetn.
They say they have never roeeivedt a
bale hy direct consignment from the
grower. Of courso, manufacturers
are iatill further from us. WVe admit
this is. wrpng, nd s'iy they are roady
to unite with .the Patrons of Hus
bandry' in' their ef'orts to reduee the
number of.+"worthless links in the
chain between us. I say worthless,
because they add nothing to the
value of the p~rodnet by handling it 'i
on the contrary, by its ,mndny sain~
lingo, weighing~ etc., (which all 4
term knowt the foekning of,) our le
are considefably lossaned in weigh..

disagrooable bofore the evening was

and changed their seats to .the other

contracted their brows, and uniar
i ned ladies assuned fixed smiles of
unnatural sweetness as they east
their fine eyes toward the playful
infant and its proud and happy
mother, fancying that they thus
advertised the well of matoin.l love
which lay latent in their virgin
bosoms. The lights were turned up
and bulged out the infant's eyes
with surprise. One feeble little
hand, with all the tiny fingers work
