THE TII.TOV LOVE LLTTKUK.
"Gath" tells, in the St. Louis 17mm of
Friday last, the story of the obtalnment
by him of tho love letters of Mr.. Tllton,
those gushing epistles or soft Elizabeth
to her adored Theodore. Tho story is
a very Intcref ting one told In tho Gath
lan manner a very little diluted Into a
Briefly, the btoryis: ''Gath" was di.
reeled by Horace White, of the Chicago
Tribune, to visit Tllton and "get Into tho
marrow ot tho topic" of (lie scandal ;
he went, talked to Tllton and Moullon
over several bottles or claret, and got the
letters, for which Tllton would not re
ceive a cent. The letters were, in Til
ton's opinion, worth $1,000;
he wan poor, but he would
not tills he said to "Gath"
take a cent for matter of that kind any
more than ho would take damages from
Mr. Beeehcr, although ho had been com
pelled to bring hU in that form.
Moultou was consulted ; W.n well-bred,
aud called Tllton, Theodore; had a too
wise look, like a mmi overestimating a
dangerous, and yet not n vnl liable trul.
At that time, Moulton's position was not
well defined. He wiu apprehemlvn, and
was thinking of running away Into M
knee ; but bo didn't.

four columns of the Timts. Slush It U ;

pointed his linger at him. and ald, In an
iniprfAsk mftnnor: "I nm entitled to

here under your oath to solemnly weigh
the sworn evidence that has been pre-
-sentcd to you, and I have a right to ex
pectyour courteous consideration after
thirteen days of speech-making on the

applause and a great senntlon in tho
Scene second : Beach was any lug- that
the defense hud not Ud a word In de
nial of the charge of improper advances
made by Beeehcr upon Mrs. Tllton. Mr.
Porter Interrupted and paid : "I cannot
permit n statement, the falsehood of
which Is known to the court and to every
Juror ." Ilea1 Hearh broke in with :
"Counsel forgets hlmelf. Thnehords
of affection, which h.ivj been growing
for thirty years between will not
stand the tension of an accusation of
falsehood." Then ensued great confu
sion. The crowd applauded, the judge
rapped to order and t he. lawyers wrangled.
Porler would not retract, and Beach
again asserted that the definite had vir
tually admitted the truth of I lie charge
of Improper advance.

A special Washington dispatch to the

lo a cablo dispatch to tho Secretary of tho

a large cpiantlty of "liver ul Car

Brltl'h quotation. This, Dr. Ltudorman
says, Is probably the cheapest that silver
was ever bought lu this count ry. The Lou
don quotation of Thursday, reduced to
equivalents In our money, Is SI.OOJ. The
purchase at Carson City was made
through Mr. McLean, the manager ol tlu
new gold bank hi California. .Mr. Mc
Lean, in a long Interview yesterday, In
sisted that the Government ought to
give a higher price for silver, and inti
mated that the Biir Bonanza and Consoli
dated California mines, if the Government
failed to increase their price, would send
their products to London. He was there
upon confronted with tho cablo dis
patch from London, which showed that
silver had depreciated there M pence in

policy of our government would be to
retlno the product of its own milieu, nnd
to buy all the bullion hi the open market
at the lowest possible price. Having
learned that the movement Is in earnest
In buying at tne to wen rate, Mr. Mc
I Lean telegraphed to California, nnd si a.

An article lu the Louisville Ledger, of
June 8, argues In this way:
Laws are operating that will result In giv
ing to tho United States the heaviest pro
rata population lu the world ;
'1 lie great body of this population must
locate In tho valleys of tho Missouri, Mis
sissippi and Ohio rivers ;
The lands lu these valleys can produce
cereals and animal lood suited to the
nourishment of the human family at a
cheaper rate than any other portion of
the American continent ;
From this tltnu tonvard there will be
a gradual but heavy iuereiiso lu every
class of food thatgoes to produco the high
est orgauWms of both animal and human
life within the great Mississippi valley.
Tho centre of this valley consequently
is, or mii-l beeuiua, tho food centre of tho
nation, and wherever thu food centre is,
tliero necessarily Is thu cheapest place for
men to make a living for themsolves ami
families, provided thu other Industrie
can give them employment ;
By a curious coincidence, where nature
has placed the food center she has alo
located the coal center, the Iron center,
the cotton center aud the lumber center
of thu nation. These form the basis ot
maiiul'aetiiriu!f Independence and suc
Therefore, many largo cities and man
ufacturing centers will necessarily miso
In the Mississippi valley ;
Consequently, LouUylllo must become
u manufacturing center, and the great ag
ricultural, mineral anil manufacturing re
sources of Kentucky, Indiana aud other
Status will be concentrated at tho Falls
of thu Ohio.
Very well. The argument Is good, but
all the writer says about Louisville might
be said with better reason about Cairo.
Cairo is in tho heart of tho Valley,
neitiier too far ortli or South ;
It Is tho healthiest city In the world, iu
which neither malignant nor eongctive
fevers are known ;
By her door runs two great river to-
ward tho Gulf, aud through her ltinlU
run great railroads uniting thu East with
tbu West, the .North with the South :
At her door, are mineral, fuel, timber,
wool, cotton nut cheap food ;
hlio has all the natural advantages
needed to build up a great manufacturing
mm commercial center;
inn these natural advantages must be
backed by public, enterprise, and this
ciuio lacks. Her population have not
thu necessary energy. Her people ex
oet the natural advantages of their cllv
to crowd her, without their labor, Into
Cairo must recover from thu fatal
dUeasc of natural advantages if she would
ever lnjoome tho great city she ought to
income ami may be made.

To a Frenchman, M A. tie la BitMle, tile
world Is Indebted for the discovery of fi
principle by "which the demolition of
that hitherto fragile subttmce Is made a
milter of no small illQlculty." At the
Cooper Iii'tltute, Sew York, a idiort
time ngo, the Invention was put to severe
tests and It was demonstrated that glus
may be made, fur '.all practical
purposes, unbreakable. The change
from the natural btittleness of glass to
the toughness which will resist uu ordi
nary usage Is brought tibout by plunging
the gins', "when at ti great heat, Into u
bath composed mainly of fatty .sub
stances.'' This process does not change
the appearance of, the glass, but does
change Its construction so materially that
when broken by sulllelent force, the frag

THE POTATO Bl'U.
A writer iu thu Xew York IleruU gives
an interesting history ot tho potato hug,
onu of the greatest enemies to agriculture'
which the tillers or the sou In America
have ever had to cmtond with.
Fifty years ago, Thomas Say, oueot'nn
ftYtYlnrltijr vjYlltJm l,,-ll,t
mountains, discovered, desrrihed and
named tho Colorado beetle. At that
time, and for some thirty-five or forty
years later, It lived on the prickly sola
tium, common to that region. As the
tide of emigration begun to flow west
ward, nnd with it thu cultivation of Urn
potato, the beetle forsook the wild sola
tium for thu more' plalablc
potato of the earlv settlers, and at
once commenced Its march to the
East, slowly at first, as the potato Ileitis
were few and far between, but steadily,
until at last it began to attract attention
as a new and dangerous enemy to agri
culture, appearing iu Nebraska about the
year 1859, two years later spreading over
Iowa and about the year 1805 reaching the
Mississippi. Ten years later It struck
the Atlantic coast, tiller sweeping over
the States of Wisconsin, Michigan, Illi
nois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Vir
ginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Nuw
Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, District of
Columbia and thu iinrthuru portion of
Virginia, though Its greatest ravages
have been almost wholly conllned to the
Slates north of Mason and Dixon's Hue.
It has also overrun port Ions of Canada.
"The Colorado potato beetle," as II Is
now almost universally called (Dory
phora tlrccm-lineala, or thu "teu-llued
spearman") belongs to thu family of leal
eating beetles Chi-isoincliUr:), aud is onu
of the largest of the group. Thu perfect
Insect measures about half an Inch iu
length, Is ot a thick oval shape aud of a
yellowish cream color, with ten dark-
brown or blackish lines running length
wise down the wing covers. Tho head
and thorax, or middle portion of the
body, arc of uu orange-browu color, spot
ted or marked with black. It has, iu ad
dition to the wing eovers, a pair of pink
wings, which lie folded beneath and hid
den except when Iho Insect Is In flight.
A writer lu tho Canadian linlomulojUt
estimated that If the progeny of a single
pair of thesu Insects were ullowcd to In
crease w Uhout molestation for an entire
season, thu result would amount to over
sixty millions of Individuals, which will
give some Idea ot their powers of repro
duction. The losses occasioned by tho
depredations of these Insects have been
estimated at eight millions of dollars per
annum since their llrsf appearance.
i mis lar, contiuuctt I lie Herald corres

however, be pure to bu elleetual. It Is

It will probably be In connection with a
whole crop of bgeiids which nre now
floating about as "good stories," but
may lu that length ol time have acquired
Important, dimensions. The story that a
man who laughed at them fell down dead
has been explored to its bibulous origin,
but like other fabr! s. It nourishes all the
Fame. A story that w hen somescolJe rramo
to Moody and asked him if ho could per
form miracles, ami was kicked out with
the remark, "1 can east out devil," has
been told mo ns having occurred lu four
dlll'ereiit regions of the country. The
wild legend that while they Were in
Liverpool ' there were no commit
tals to prison has similarly taken root hi
various eltle, and cannot be killed by
any quantity of fact". Ou the other hand,
there are n large number of fables of u
contrary character, which show like
ubiquity. On over' railway you hear
the iiiiccdole that .MooJy's w orldfy daugh
ter went to the thcatP', was met by her
saintly lather ntbrcaMat with the greet
lng."Good morning, i hlld of Satan, "nnd
replied, "Good morning, papa r" It
happened at Shefllclil. nbo at Dublin,
also at Glasgow, tint .Moody having
asked a gentleman whether lie had
"found Jeits." nnswircd "N'o, have von

shocked at tho youth's profanity, said:

! going V "Halifax," answered the'voiith.
-vo, lepocu .iioouy, solemnly, "you re

again, hy (i d!"' exclaimed the youth,
leaping from the ear. This mvtli bears a
plain relation to the "Hell or Halifax"
jiroyeib, and let an ellbrt has been made
by u doen railroad lines to plagarie It.
