CAKTHAor.. 111., Fell. 1(5. Sensational
reports were sent out from Warsaw, in
this county, on Wednesday last to the
effect that Mrs. Jay Wilson, residing
with her husband and children about
twelve miles south of Warsaw, bad be
come suddenly ill on the previous Satur
day, and had, to all appearances, died.
A neighbor was bent to Warsaw on
Monday for a cotlin, but he got drunk
and his return was delayed until eaily
Tuesday morning. It was stated that
the lady's watchers proceeded to placu
the supposed corjkse in the cotlin when
the dead woman throw up her arms and
grasiied the wrist of one of the attend
ants witli a vice-like grip. The
attendants were compelled to tie the
woman's hands to her breast to keep hei
from clinching them. It finally dawned
upon the neighbors that ierhaps the
woman was not dead, 'so various well
known tests were applied, such as pinch
ing tho woman's eais, placing a mirror
over her mouth, etc. It was further
stated that the woman was finally le
Buscitated, and became able to tell her

New Yoiik, Feb. 1(S. There was a
dispatch from San Francisco in the
morning papers which gave Jacob Dan
ziger, a Berlin wheat dealer in that city,
as authority for the statement that
Baron do Hivsoh being suspicious that
his agents in New York were stealing
part of his $10,000 per mouth instead of
using it to aid Jewish emigrants, had
come to this city disguised as an old
Hebrew, and has had his suspicions con
firmed. When the dispatch was shown
to Julius Goldman, honorary secretary
of the Boron de Hirsch fund, ho smiled.
"The story is so absurd," ho said,
"that it is not worth contradicting. 1
had a letter from the Baron Tuesday, in
which he said that of all his agents foi
the disbursement of his various funds lie
thought most highly of the New York
agents. Wo are distributing the baron's
money honestly and equitably, and we
are supplementing it, too, with a good
deal ot our own money. The high char
acter of the men connected with the
fund is a guarantee ot the way in which
it is being applied."

Paius, Tex., Feb. 10. Thero is evi
dently a big sensation atloat in the mili
tary and judicial departments of thi'
government that looks to international
matters. Sometime ago the San Antonii
Democrat published a six-column artick
in which thero was an interview with
Paul Frick, United States marshal foi
the western district of Texas, in which
he stated that the United States soldieit
had demonstrated their inability to cap
ture Garza, intimating that they were
too slow and otherwise ineflicient.
In the same issue United States At
torney Evans gave color to the idea that
Marshal Frick was responsible for the
failure to catch the noted revolutionist.
It seems that this article was forwarded
to Washington, for A. II. Dougald, one
of tho court examiners who is now in
this city, received a type-written letter
signed James G. Blaine, secretary ot
state, asking him to proceed at onco to
San Antonio and fully investigate the
matter. Tho Democrat lias evidently
brought up some international question.

Washington, Feb. HI. Tho Chicago
board of trade had a hearing before tho
bouse commit teo on agriculture on the
anti-option bill and through its president
Charles W. Ilamill, opposed tho passage
af tho bill on the grounds that it prohib
ited dealings in futuies. The system of
future deliveries, Mr. Hainill said, grew
up in response to a demand from agri-
julturists for si continuous open market
which was impossible without future
buying and selling, lie believed the
vale of futures was in tho interest of
producers. Speculation, in his opinion,
had a tendency to sustain values. If a
jian were prohibited from buying for
future iWivcry, n great stimulus to buy
ing would be taken away. In answer to
Mr. Lewis of Mississippi, Mr. Ilamill
admitted that, speculation sometimes
forced prices down, but believed this was
generally temporary, and that in tho ag
rregatn it sustained prices.
