Richmond, Va., April 18. The Vir
ginia supreme court of nppcals heard
argument of counsel In the case Involv
ing the allegation tbat an option had
been given en the let in which is the
grave of the mother of Geerge Wash
ington. The title of the case Is Kelbert
& Klrtlcy against Shepherd, from the
circuit court of the city of Fredericks
burir. The records show that en Feb-
j niary 28, 1880, the defendant Shepherd,
; gave Klrtley &. Kelbert, a real estate
firm of Fredericksburg, an option ter
the purchase of the let.
The sum mentioned was $2,500, whteh
was te include also the monument,
which hns been contributed by a New
Yerk man, but had never been com
pleted. The real estate firm claim, and
the records bear out their claim, that
they found a purchaser for $20,000 In
C. 11. Huntingdon, of Baltimore.
The prperty was advertised In vari
ous parts of the country, nnd at
tracted considerable attention. The
result was that the people of Fred
ericksburg held a .mass meeting at
which resolutions 'disapproving the
proposed sale of the sacred spot were
adopted. Mr. Shepherd refused te ac
cept the $2,500 and te make a deed for
the let The result was a damage suit
Instituted by the real estate firm In the
circuit court of Fredericksburg. The
decision was against the plaintiffs, the
court holding that the spot containing
the grave of the mother of Washington
could net be the subject of a sale. This
opinion will, It is believed, be substan
tially approved by the supreme court.
This the tribunal Intimated yesterday

ELEGANT" THANCLATION. .
A. Xlvtne' I'rculliir Attemjit te Improve
The King James version of the nibla
is a classic of classics, but there have
net been wanting men who fancied
that it needed retouching and refining.
Dr. Harwood, au English divine of seme
two hundred years age, went se far nstei
make a new and "elegant" translation,
saj's the Youth's Companion. Hi pur
pose, ns he modestly expressed it. was
te "clethe the gcnulne ideas and doc
trines of the apostles with that propri
ety and perspicuity In which they them
selves, I apprehend, would have exhib
ited them, had they new lived nnd -written
In our language." Seme of his at
tempts te avoid "the bald and barbar
ous languageef the eklvulgar version"
are worth quoting as terrible examples
of what elegant writing Is net.
The plain-spoken warning te the
Laedicean church is Improved thus:
"Since, , therefore, you "arc new In a
state of lukcwarmnc&s, a disagreeable
medium between the two extremes, I
will, In no, long time, eject you from
my heart with fastidious contempt."
The translator Is especially happy In
what may be called his personal
euphemisms. Nlcedcmus Is "this gen
tleman;" one of the apostle's Athenian
converts Is "a lady of distinction," and
the daughter of Ueredias is "a young
lady who danced with inimitable grace
and elegance." The father of the prod
igal Is "a gentleman of splendid fam
ily," and St. Paul no longer leaves a
"cloak" at Treas, but a 'portmanteau,"
as wc3 certainly mere becoming te a
On the Mount of Transfiguration St.
Peter no longer says In vulgar, every
day language: "Lord, it Is geed for us
te be here," but "Sir, what a delectable
residence we might fix here."
The apostle's saying: "We shall net
all sleep, but we shall all bj changed,"
becomes "We bhall net all pay the com
mon debt of nature, but we shall, by a
soft transition, be changed from mor
tality te immortality."
The magnificat Is thus rendered: "My
soul with reverence adores my Creater,
and all my faculties with transport join
in celebrating the goodness of Ged, my
Saviour, who hath in se signal a man
ner condescended te regard my peer
and humble station. Transcendent
goodness! Every future age will new
conjoin in celebrating my happiness."
A SUBMARINE MONSTER.
TIie Clzautle Cuttings!! Kecantljr Feunl
Net long since the people of Achill,
or Cagle Island, lyiuc off the coast of
Ireland, in county Mtye, were accorded
a privilege rare in the annalb of the hu- :
man race nothing less than the uncom
mon sight of a stranded "devilfish. "
When first washed ashore at the en
trance of Dlacksed bay the villag-ers
tool; it te be the carcass of some gigantie
und unknown :pccics of whale. After a
couple or three weeks, however, when
it hr.t! been tossed further Inland by a
terrific gale, the true character of the
ur.t'onimen visitor was m.idc Imewn.
Te what species of the (Emnvstr,. phes
the monster belonged could net be
ascertained, the creature bein- tee far
?ene In decay. The sucker and the
horny rings had fallen of? before it
readied the strand, the parrot-like beak
peculiar te this animal being also miss
ing. The animal, although visibly
shrunken anJ distorted, measured as
follews: Length of tentacles, or long
arni3, thirty feet each; circumference
of body, sixty feet: circumference of
tentacles neur body, four feet eaeh.
Only four ether Instancesef the appear
ance of this strange monster In liritlsh
waters have been recorded, says the St.
Leuis Republic. It Is often usked why
such things are net preserved in mu
seums, easily accessible te curious sight- -seers.
De you knew that It would take
a glass vessel as large as the hull of the
Great Eastern te show off such a monster
te any degree of perfection whatever?
Curious talcs are often told by rnuriners
about this most gigantic of water mon
sters. Its enormous tentacles, are armed
with formidable suckers, nearly as
large as the average wash tub. besides
hooks and spikes, each set with vicious- ' ,
looking teeth, all pointing Inwurd.
Seme naturalists beliove that glimpses '
or the devilfish's arms have given rlsb ,
te the eft-repcatcd sea-serpent stories; t'
