a hoincsteatl entry ou the above tract
of land. The same day Fcnniinorc's
filing v.'tts in transmission through the
land office. Fouunimorc was notified
at Lawrence of the state of affairs at
his claim, and he came on to Wichita
January 20th, bringing- a part of his
family and household effects with him.
He at once filed a declaratory statement
in the land office, claiming: said tract
under the iire-eniption act of 1841, and
basing his scttlci9nt on his improve
ments and efforts to hold and occupy
said tract of land ever since the 17th
day of last March. Fcnniinorc's attor
neys ordered J. 5. Stone not to build
on or occupy said land. Hut Stone
built and occupied with his family, di
rectly over Fcnniinorc's cellar, and
still continues to do so. Fennimorc
commenced improving again on the
24th day of January by digging three
feet in a well on another part of the
claim, and on the 30th day of January
J. S. Stone and his father, Andrew
Stone, John IScatty, Jesse Dean, a Mr.
Voss, and a Mr. Mirchcss and Lcn. Bal
lincr presented thcmsclvc where
Fennimorc was building his house, the
aforesaid J. S. Stone and his father
being spokesmen for the party, Stone
threatening, with oaths, to throw Fen
nimorc and the house off the land, and
his parly, three besides himself, also a
Mr, Woodrow was standing by as a
spectator, not at work nor able to work
on the house, but he shared the male
diction of J. S. Stone, being shamefully
treated in words by Stone. They called
on Fennimorc to sec his certificate from
the land office, which he showed them.
They stepped to one side, took coun
sel and then left, Stone threatening if
the house was completed the hoti-'c
anil effects and Fennimorc should all
be thrown off the laud, they all the
time claiming that the law should net
tle the matter, Fennimorc all the time
agreeing thereto. Fennimorc built his
house and motcd into it J.m. ."50th and
occupied it till the 2d daj of February,
when the house and effects of Fenni
morc were forcibly seized and taken
oil the land. Stone and his party arc,
if their words arc of heavy weight,
some on the light, although they cry
so loudly, "we'll settle it by law!"
(Query: Mob law?) Fennimorc is said
to be willing and anxious to settle the
difficulty by the law of right and jus
tice, but is as determined as Stone is
to have his rights in the case. What
mar come out of the case is not known,
but Stone got his entry registered first,
and a residence on the land with his
family, but Fennimorc got the first im
provement", and has the best of ccrtif
ficates to his improvements and his
doing everything to try to make the
land his home, having forwarded incaua
from Lawrence to hi? attorneys, in
care of the receiver at AVichita, at two
different times; and he is now put
off by a mob, and it seems, to a casual
observer, that Fennimorc is certainly
entitled to the laud. What the ruling
of the register and receiver, and the
authorities at Wa-hington, may be, we
cannot tell, but we sincerely hope that
offender of the civil law may be
brought to tealizu that we live in a
land where civil and religious liberties
under our law.- are vouchsafed to all
our citizens. More anon.
A Sciontiflc Sensation.
To the Kditor of the Kansas City Times :
A friend of mine rciidin!; in Flor
ence, an Ameiican man of science
traveling for the sake of his health,
latelj wrote to tnc as follows:
"I have attended the meetings of one
the numerous scientific coteries with
w hicli Italy is blessed. In one of them
a htibj'ect was broached which if gen
erally known would .-tartle the whole
civilized woild. One of the members,
a man whose name is known in both
hemispheres, averted that the cele
brated Donati (who lately tlicd. much
regie! ted by scientific men) had been
a victim, not to disease nor to time,
although he was in a "green old age,'
but to nervous excitement or fright,
caused by a discovery which he had
made ol great and even agonizing Im
portance to the human race.
Donati had for many tear- been em
ploying his unbounded "energy in ex
ploring some of the "hidden things in
astronomy." Of these investigations
he kept a'strict record, of soUr phe
nomena especially. lie constructed an
instrument bv which he could calcu
late the earth's exact place in the gieat
ellipse that it travels around the Min.
and also, iu his own estimation, its
distance from the sun, although iu this
latter point he was not universally
credited bv his scientific colleagues.
He never (ailed to make minute daily
records of the results of his observa
tions, and to this custom he owed hi
fresh discovery. On the very day that
the cable was laid, his instruments
j showed him that the earth, like some
w,tl, ni'icr ilir- fiKieli its distance wa-
troceitiblv lessened, as shown by hiilv was relieved of three poekct-hand-

'Hallo ! Alford. Where can a fellow
hitch his horse?"'
".Right here. Hold on, 111 fix it.
Come iu,' and the long-legged con
ductor on a western railroau welcom
ed the Globe domicile.
"Lie down, Kate!" said he to a large
Xew Foundland lut, who manifested
iiKjuisitiveness as to the pregnant hing
es of our reportorial knee, and Kate,
an elegant specimen of her species,
tlopped down behind the stove' wink
ing at the Globe with both her eyes.
Alford is the conductor of the Iron
Mountain train robbed on Saturday,
and the Globe had driven to his resi
dence at Carondelet, on Third, between
Oliver and Nebraska streets.
"Tell me all about this thing, new."
said the Globe. "Commence at the
start from St. Louis and relate the cir-cum-tanccs
'Well. I ran out train Xo. 7. the Lit
tle Uock express, and started from
Plum street at 10 minutes to 10 Satur
day morning. We got behind, and
when we reached Gadshill, one hun
dred and twenty miles front St. Louis,
we were an hour late. Gadshill is a
regular stopping place, though there is
no station there only a platform. It
is a small place of "no account, and
there arc but a few houses. There
used to be a mill there'.."
"A grist mill 5"
"Gristmill? Xo. They'll never have
a grist mill there in the world, a saw
mill. The country around there is
heavy timbered, and it is just the place
for a'saw mill, or a robber.
'Of what was vour train compos
ed?" "Four cars ; a mail, baggage and ex
press ear, all in one, two coaches and
a sleeper. I reckon we had twenty-five
passengers in all, five of them ladies.
We were due at Gadshill at six min
utes past four, but we didn't get there
until a ijuarter of five. As we ap
proached the town, the engineer no
ticed a red flag and whistled down. I
went to the car and saw the tlag, and
jumped off before the train had fully
stopped. for I thought the track was
torn up, or there was some other dif
ficulty, because a red tlag means dan
ger. As I struck the platform, I no
ticed tlie train running on the side
track. The northern switch had been
open and so had the southern, and
when we got on the side track wc
were stuck, for had wc started for
ward or back, we would have run of
tlie track. Just as I jumped offa man
grabbed me by the collar and jammed
a pistol in my face. He was a huge
six footer, anil his face was covered
with a mask made of white cloth, with
holes cut for his eyes and mouth. Heic
I'll show you, anil taking the Globe's
handkerchief, Alford put it oer hi
face tucked the corners in his vest.
"How many men were there in the
"There were only live ; anil the fun
niest thing was that they captured the
town first, and pulled every man. wo
man and child out of the houses. They
had built a big bon-firc near the plat
form, and there were the inhabitants
crowded around trying to keep warm.
The robber.-, stood over them, on guard
all armed with from two to three na
vv revolvers, and three of them had
double-barreled bhot-gtin. When the
fellow grabbed me I didn't know what
to make of it."'
"Weren't ou frightened?"
"Well, I icckoti I was somewhat
frightened ; but he put me right at my
ease he comforted me."
"What did he sav ?"
"Stand still, or I'll shave the top of
your d d head oil ' I stood ntill. I
saw two of the gang jump on the en
gine, and they made the engineer and
liremaii got down, i ncy were nrougiii
to where I stood, and the lobber cov
ered us with a pistol. lie spoke to
those who looked out at the windows,
and told them if a shot fired he would
kill the conductor. That was me. One
of them stood on the other side of the
train and as the passengers put their
heads out, he told them to take those
heads back or the'd loc 'em. He had
adoublc-barreli-d -hot-gun, and I don't
tliink he wa- looliiiLranr. Two of them
went into the baggage car and hauled
out tho baggage-man anil a hrakcm.iu.
These they put under the same guard
thathad nic. There was anotherbrakc
maii, but begot into the sleeping car
and staved there. They then went into
the mail apartment and demanded the
registered packages of the mail agent.
They rummaged through the letters
and picked out tho-e that had been
registered, and brought the agent out
unto tlie platform ami handed him over
to the guard. The express messenger
was the next man, anil as they went
into his room he covered them with a
pi-tol, but another drew a bead on him
with a gun, and instructed him to lay
that pistol down gently. He ditl so.
Then thev demanded his ke, opened
the safe and took out the mouet package-.
They took out one marked
"watch," btit when they opened it and
found it to be a silver watch they drop
ped it. They put the other packages
into bags nnil then went through the
bagjraze boxes. Thet opened my
satchel ami took out my pistnl. Afier
that exploit they went through the
train. They weren't careful with the
passengers. They punched them in the
ribs with pistols, and pointed their
eliootintr iroin. in their faces. Not a
man escaped litem. lit cry one was
robbed, although they took but one
gold watch. Several had lino watches,
but the thieves passed them over

Audacious Hobery on the
this fellow had something to do with
it. I shouldn't wonder if he had. 1
think they were all old at the business.
When I thought they had got quito
through I asked them if I might go.
They said t es, and I sent a man to shut
the northern switch, and went myself
to shut the southern. They had bcut
the rod so that I had to get a board to
straighten it. This took me some time,
and in the meantime thev made oil.
They went in westerly direction to
where their horses stood, and they
shook hands with the engineer, anil
told him always to stop when he saw a
red flag. He told them he alwavs did.
The engineer's name is Wm. Wetton.
and the fireman's name is Campbell. I
do not know his first name. One thing
I forgot, before their departure thet
wrote out a telegram to the St. Loufs
Dispatch, and gave it to a passenger to
send through. They said that paper
had misrepresented them ou one occa
sion, and they wanted to put it in pos-eeS-ion
of all the facts. I telegraphed
the dispatch to the railroad office in St.
Louis, and the operator took it off the
wire and scut iu to the Republican and
Times as a special.
"How long had they been waiting
there for you V
"About two hours. It took them
forty minutes to go through us, and iu
that time they made about $2,:W0, be
sides the money packages and the $300
they took trout the Gadshill man."
"1 have heard that Maudcrville had
about $10,000 on the train, and that
the robbers got it ; do you know anything-
about that ?"
"No; 1 never heard that before. He
might have had it iu a trunk, but I
don't think he did."
"Have you any clue to the identity
of the robbers any theory of who they
"I think they arc the same gang that
robbed the Hot Springs stage about
two weeks ago, and the Iowa train
some time past. They took dinner at
Moark on Tuesday, and at Hot Springs
ou Friday. That is the ouly trace we
have of them now."
"When did you come back ?"
"I went ou to Piedmont and tele
graphed there, and then went to the
state line, and come back this after
noon." Alford is a iitiict man, with a humor
ous style of describing what he sees,
ami told his story to the Globe iu a
quaint but straightway manner. He is
a man of nerve, and a man of strong
common sense. He evidently has rea
son to bclievethose who attacked him to
be the Iowa train robbers. Iu his nar
rative there was no bragging. He
seemed to accept the iuavitable situa
tion and makat the best of it.
And so these bands of thieves seem
to make .Miasoiui their home; intend
to stay here. Perhaps some effort
will bu'madc to catch and punish them,
and perhaps not. In the meantime
the traveling public are to rejoice
at the prospect ot aomc culivcumcut
of an otherwise monotonous railroad
trip. St. Louis Globe.
A Cleveland Romance.
Very few, if any, of the passengers
in the'Dctroit street car bound for the
cast side at 9 o'clock Thursday even
ing, understood the matter we will
"rise to explain." The girl wa to
blame, there can bo no doubt about
that. Xo fellow, much less our heio.
who stepped on the rear platform of
the car in winch she was sitting at the
Courtland street crossing, u the even
ing iu question, could have withstood
the temptation to do jiut a he did.
She al in one corner endravoring to
read a publie library book by the faint
light of the lamp above, when the
toting man entered, she raised her
eves such eyes! from the volume,
and before the gentleman could take a
seat, precipitated herself forward, with
both arms extended, and hugged and
ki.-i-ed him, shouting, "O! cousin
John!" It is needless for us to sav
that the youth was not the fair maiden'-
cousin, and had never seen her
before iu his life, hut he did not deem
it polite to contradict her, and there
fore, recovering from the surprise and
emotion with which the suddennces of
the assault had iti-jiiied linn, he gained
courage and printed a couple of smacks
upon her damask cheek iu return, hue
did not scream, but smiled loviuglv
upon him a smile that smote the youth
ti theutmostdepthsofhis soul. "W by,
when ditl you arrive in the city?" said
she, at length releasing her hold anil
seating herself, the stranger doing the
same. "To-night," answered tlie bo-gii-Johit
at random. "Theuyoti must
come down and sec me at once; wc
will get oil the car at Franklin trct.
Such an invitation from such lips was
too much for tho supposed John, and,
although he quaked to the bottoms of

it was impossible for him to resUt the
beauty's urgent entreaties; and when

Tbe Dead Siamese Twins.
The death of the Siamese twins iu
Mout Aiery, near Salisbury, X. C., on
the 17th of' this mouth, ended one of
the most remarkable of natural phe
nomena. They came to this country
in 1739. when they were only eighteen
years old, having'previously been ex
hibited in Europe. They were born
on the coast of "siama, and their ti.tr
cnts lived by fishing. Xonc of their
fifteen brother and sister-i were de
formed, although many of them were
twins. They made the tour of the
United States, and, excepting Tom
Thumb, were the greatest objects ot
wondcrmeut to the people. .Nor was
the curiosity regarding them confined
to gaping rtiralists. To many men of
science thev were the first specimen of
joined and living human beings. The
tleshy ligature wincii nuked mem was
about a foot in length, two inches
broad, and four thick, and through it
ran a large aitery and manv veins,
making their circulation identical.
Their breathing, too. was simultane
ous when they wcro asleep. They
were not so entirely one, however, but
that each had an entirely separate ex
istence. Their senses were totally dis
connected. One could not feel a" hurt
inflicted on the other, the ligature be
ing the only part in which they were
sensitive in common. Much scientific
discussion arose concerning them,
mainly bearing upon the question of
ISaruum got the twins iu 18.M), and
for several years they were show n iu
his old museum. At that time thev
spoke Engli-h very imperfectly. They
were below the iiiediitm size. Chang
was larger than ling, and looked sev
eral years younger; he was, too, the
mental superior f his brother, al
though both were ignorant, and had
intelligence that scarcely rose above
low cunning. Their faces were pe
culiarly repelling, jellow in hue. and
closely'rcsenibliug those of the Chiue-e
cigar seller of Chatham street. Chang
was the most robust and good natureil.
ring was often sick, and always morosr
aim peetish. They had a sleeping
room in the museum as did the other
curiosities, and one night a rumpus
was heard iu it. Ou breaking open
tlie door, the twins were found light
ing. Eng was ou the floor, underneath
Chang, who was clucking him. As a
rule, howctcr, Chang was more for
bearing than the irritable disposition
of his brother warranted. The pl.-vjed
checkers together sometimes, and took
les-ons in lluglitli with slow- results.
Their pay was $100 a week, which thev
cquitiiblv divided and put into sav
ings banks. They net er idled their
home, and seemed to have no care for
their family. When Lug was sick
Chang nursed him ; but did soperhan
from selllsh motive-, a- the seriou ill
ness of one mailo it iircpary for the
well one also to go to bed. Chang had
something ol nn appreciative tent of
fun, and likud to give senseless answer-,
in his broken Iluglish, to the
numberless questions of viitor. Thev
remained with Itanium until IS.'j.'i, and
it is believed that they had then saved
about $10,000 each. t. rowing tlrrd of
show life, they decided to nettle down
in a warmer pint of the United Mutes.
Iu their travels they had been in
Xorth Carolina and its climate pleased
them, ho I hey bought out two plan,
tations, and secured wives to complete
their domestic establishment. Here
thev took the Mir-uaiiie of Hunker.
They were then bachelors of fortt
four". They married English sisters,
aged twenty-six and twenty-eight. The
girls had been servunls, and II is said
that a Lancashire dialect still flings to
tlieiti. The making of the double
match involved mti'di trouble, for al
though the twin- weie not tindtilv tx
acting, it was haul to find women who
were both willing ami at all desirable
Theie was no love-making before t la
the engagement, Ihe courting was done
by proxy and corie-pondenee, and ihe
ladies hud only seen their future hus
bands at a rliovv in Loudon when they
accepted the oiler of man Inge. The
twins based their choice iiponTlkrueaa
r forwarded by their agent, who gave
n.nr:itif i uf tin rcs1ccl:ihfllt v ot thr
girls. All having been arranged the) j
were brought to America, uiu twins
pa) iug their ejpetn.es, and the mar
riage was quietly soIemni7cd in i-ulis-btiry.
The wives were not beautiful,
but'were strong, healthy English work
ing girls. The domestic liven of the
couples were peculiar. Hndi fumilv
had Its own house, servant and dome-
tic establishment. I lie plantations
were owned and managed separately,
although in matters of consequence
Chang was generally master The
wives lived entirely at their rcepeetlte
homes, and the husbands alternatcd
stav ing one week at (. hang's house
and the next week at Eng'a Each
looked after hi plantation and other
bil-incss during the weeks of living at
his own place, and the visiting brother
was not MtitpO'ed to interfere Thr
W,V(.S did not agree tery well, and
the strangely tied families quarreled
o scrioual) that the ilrr frequently
had period of complete estrangement
for weeks at a time.
ro, although Chang and ling were
rich, they did not live happily Mr.
Chang had the first child, and It was a
deal mule. The families, increased

could sustain a separate circulation of
the blood, and to havo cut the ligature
would hate killed both. With this
knowledge thev returned to their
homes andlivcd'a they had done be

about a ear ago Chang suffered a par

The details of their death aro meager.
Chang died first, and a few moment
afterward Eng, who had for a few days
been well, became delirious and raved
wildlv. This may have resulted from
the mental shock" and apprehcusioit as
to his ov ti fate.
"An intimate friend of tlte Siamese
Twins" write to the Sun that they did
not marry English servant girls, but
daughters of a Xorth Carolina planter
named Yatc. Each. ay tho writer,
had twelve children one ten btrvs and
two girl.s. and the other ten girls and
two bo) s. Many of their children havo
died, and these bereavement bore
ery heavily upon Chang and Euff.

good standing of the IUptist church.
I'hey were recognized in the neighbor
hood a men of social standing, and
their daughters associated with those
of the othsir planters, some of them
contracting very desirable marriage.
They were not of weak intellect, but
strong partisan in politics and shrewd
Story of u Seed.
Once upon it time, away down Iu
Georgia, a man planted a little seed.
The aun shono warm on It, and the
rain canto and softened it, and it soon
began to sprout. Day and night It
grew, till it was high as n man' head.
Units formed all over it, and one night
they burst into bloom. Slcatitlful cream
colored flowers they were, something
like a iuoruiug-s.lory.
Ity noon the kuii was too warm. The
beautiful blos-oms shut their leaves
and hung their head, and before night
each cream-colored flower dropped off

Then a man a negro camo and tore
the cotton fioiii it boll, put it Into a
basket with others like it, and carried
it tu ti loom where were hundred of
pounds of cotton. In the room was a
bust machine, and into that machine
the cotton was thrown.
