We published accounts recently of the
brutal and mysterious murder ot Miss

she was attacked and cruelly beaten with

The Mexican Congress has given to
President Lcrdo Tcjadu extraordinary
powers Investing him with an absolute
control over the army of the republic.
This dangerous precedent has been made
In favor of the present ruler because Ills
administration has shown Iilm to lie wise
anil patriot!;, and for the ostensible pur
pose of speedily restoring disturbed
States to their proper condition In the
government. Mexican fanatics, in at
tempting to aroiuu the old feeling ot re
ligious intolerance and hate, are endan
gering the vitality of the government, and
owing to this fact the Mexican Congress
has placed in the hands of its patriot
president tho control of the republic1
army. Using this powerful ally he has
been fast suppressing outbreaks by a
proper distribution of the federal tinny
under the best and most courageous gen
erals of the government.
Chicken thieves became so numerous
In Memphis, Teun., that Chlct-of-Pollec
Athy tiered a premium for an Invention
that would deter predatory bauds from
stealing the chickens of the best families
of the city. Many Inventions were pre
sentcd to the chief, but a compromise
could not be cfleefed. At length the
local editor of the Avalanche presented
his design, in the shape of a chicken tor
pedo, which was promptly accepted by
Mr. Athy, and applied with atouUliliig
effect. The invention Is Ingenious. It Is
made in the form of a fully matured
chicken, and is covered with feathers
the breast being made to palpitate in a
natural manner. Inside of this feathered
artificial fowl is combustible material suf
clently powerful to disturb the reverie
of an educated elephant, and elevate the
raider to the enviable altitude of "four
Inches by the watch," at the same time
divesting him of superfluous garments
and flesh. The Inventor claims that the
combustible power of his automatic
chicken Is derived from a source similar to
Mr. Kecly's. and Is ouc of the useful
stride ot science. One yery serious
drawback to the Invention is that Its ex
plosion destroys all the chickens in it
immediate vicinity. To meet this serious
emergency, the inventor sells with each
torpedo a set of stuffed chickens, with a
wire attachment, so that to touch an
auxiliary chicken will prove as fatal a to
touch the torpedo. An agency will bo
established in Cairo In a few day.
AFRICA'S CHEAT LAKE hVATEM.
The accepted theory now is that the
Nile, Zambezi and Congo rivers, in Af
rica, have for their source lakes and In
land seas In the equatorial regions ; and
the New York Hirald says that IhU
theory will be fully established when
Stanley' Eclentltic exploration and sur
vey of thereat lakes is completed and
their results made the property of the
reading world. A depressed plain l
said to surround these lakes extending
from the southerly limits of Sahara to
about the twentieth degreo ot southern
latitude, and to within from three hun
dred to the hundred miles of the east,
crn and western coast lines of the
continent. The Hnald says: "Helng
immediately under the equator these
lakes are mainly within the limit of the
neutral zone, on cither side of which the
atmosphere and oceanic equatorial cur
rents diverge to the north and south.

THE WTATE ELECTION.
Eleven State held elections on last
TuesdayIllinois, Kansas, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi,
New Jersey, Now York, Pennsylvania,
Virginia and Wisconsin. With the ex
ception of our State, all these were held
for State olllccrs. Mississippi elected six
members of Congress, New York one,
and Massachusetts one. Gaston, the Dcm
ocratlc candidate for Governor, is believed
to bo beaten by a small majority. In
New York the State ticket is In doubt.
Local troubles caused the Demo
crats to lose heavily In the

Maryland went entirely Democratic.
New Jersey gives both branches of her
legislature to the Republicans. Returns
from Virginia show gains for both Con
servatives and Republicans, the former
having tho largest. The general result
will not materially alter the complexion
of the legislature.
