Fargo, Daic, Aug. 21. A large delegation
of citizens, headed by 11 brass band,
marched to the depot and received Uucla
Kufus Hutch and his party with so much
noise and enthusiasm that tho English
guests stared in astonishment at what they
evidently considered a desecrction of tho
Sabbath. Tho party rested all day, and
were driven to the Dalrymplo farm, eighteen
mile to tiie westward. The educated
Europeansin tho party freely expressed
their admiration whilo witnessing 130
reapers and self-binders begin work on a
field of 28,000 acreus of wheat. This
single experience, tliov say, has
given them a more intelligent idea of
the wealth and greatness of tho United
States tiian years of reading. The expedition
has been judiciously timedfor nn
inspection of the great grain-bearing belt
when its wealth is most evident. Tho
wheat crop is much larger than that of
last year and the grain is a superior
quality. Tho crop in the Bed River Valley
will average twenty-two bushels to tho
acre. Gray eyed, smiling Uncle Eufus
appears to be as well-known throughout
tho West as ho is in Wall street and his
journey is liko a loyal progress. Tho people
ot this section, of course understand
the benefits their country will
derive from Mr. Hatch's tour.
He loses no opportunity to point
out to the English journalists in his party
the great wealth ot tho soil and tho advantages
of clime and situation. Landowners
here look forward to an inllux of
emigrants tempted to settle in tho Northwest
by tho great tilings that theso journalists
will describe in the European newspapers.
The party will reacli Bismarck,
and on Wednesday will.enter the Yellowstone
Park, where they will remain for
about two weeks. The following is a copy i

New York, Aug. 23. The Abbott opera
company has started out for the season
well supplied with stars. They go straight
to Des Moines, Iowa, where they open on
tho 27th and remain un'tilthe 30th. Tho
remainder of the week will bo given to
smaller towns, one night at each place.
Tho system of traveling companies
now in voguo gives( tho wholo country
tho opportunity of hearing
tho great singers and actors; something
that could not Ufe dono in tho days ot
stock companies. For that reason, in spite
of all predictions to tho contrary, thoso
whoso judgment ought to be final say that
there can be no return to the stock system.
Tho Abbott company has really superior
attractions this year. Tagliapetra. tho
greatest of all baritones, whoso voice is
divino melody, and whoso oriental eye
aro as liquid and expressive as his
music, is with them. It is his first tour in
English opera, and it has been years
since he went over tho. States in a
concert company. Then there is Castle
tho good-looking, sentimental tenor, Abbott
admirable and exquisite contralto, whoso
popularity increases continually, and
wanes not. By the way, it is not" known
in professional circles or anywhere outside
of Madame Seguin's immediate
friends, but new and great roles
are planned for this contralto
for noxt season. A successfcl nlavwricht.
whoso name is not to appear until tho
iroper time, is dramatizing Oliver Twist
S 'or her. She will play in tho title role.
which will bo mado a singing character.
The play will bo entirely different from
the milk-and-water dramatization of that
name which has so long been before the
public. The Sykes family aro to be eliminated.
Neither Nancy nor William are to
appear. They nover had any business to bo
tho chief characters in a play called
Oliver Twist, being but remotely connected
with Oliver's history. The dramatization
intended for Mrs. Seguin will bo the refined
interpretation of the book. Oliver
will be rescued from tho imbecility which
distinguishes him in the present version,
and will bo grven character, spirit and interest.
Bumble will be tho big comedian,
and Fagin tho villain. That this
can bo mado tho greatest attraction
before tho public is not at all
unlikely. Tho old dramatization
catered to the element which loved bloody
horrors above nil other sage luxuries. Besides
it was prepared to suit tho actors
who excelled in tragedy of that order.
Now that the public has outgrown its taste
for murder in the raw and veered around
to the ntler and sweeter
romance, tiiere is need for n new Oliver
Twist, or rather, the old ono properly interpreted.
Still another character even more interesting
and rarer is designed for Min.
Seguin-Wallace next season. It is Rich'

dinal was exceedingly eventful and dashing.
Mrs. Seguin is a magnificent

the boy in the marriage of Figaro,
and ax Fred rick in Mignon, know that in
either Oliver Twist or young Richelieu

in a field that has of late been
overrun by a weak creations too often
rendered by a still weaker actors.

Georgia, to bring a prisoner named W.
G. Grantt to the convict camp of Ben
Lockett & Co., situated near this city.
Grantt had been convicted of abduction in
the Carroll Superior Court, and sentenced
to the Penitentiary for six months. Beaching
this point, Grantt, who was a voting
man of bo good appearance, talked so
and told such a reasonable
tale, that Capt. James English, one of the
lo&secs, tried to arrange for him to remain
in tho city, and drive one of tlu
uompany's trains. Granttt gave Office i
Kelley the name of the young girl witn
whoso abduction he was charged, and a detailed
description, and also ollered to givt
$25 for finding her, stating Urn it is hit-opinion
she was in some b.ignio in Atlanta.
Tho officer searched laithfuily foi
the girl, but failed to find hci. The horrible
truth ofuho case has just come to
light. Some farm laborers near the Tallapoosa
river, in Carroll county, on Friday
lust found a bonnet with a hole cut in
ono side and smeared with blood. The
bonnet was identified us tho bonnet worn
by the girl when last she was seer
by her people. A thorough search was
made which resulted in the finding of the remains
of the murdored girl under some
projecting roots in the river. It was held
last by them. Tho body was fast decaying
but was readily recognized as the missing
girl, mid showed tho cruel mark of
the Unite which, cutting through the bonnet,
had seveied the main artery of tin.
neck. Notice has just been served upon
Lockett & Co. by the authorities of Carroll
county that when Grantt's term of service
expires he will bo held to answer the chargi
of murder. The murdered girl's nanu

Downsvillk, Mi)., Aug. 24. Mr. Moses
Bozell, of this place, received a letter
about ten days ago stating that his mother
was lying beriously ill at her home in
Virginia. He made all possible speed to
get to his mother's side and arrived at
bhepherdstown, Va., where the letter
stated that a wagon would bo in waiting.
On his arrival, however, no
wagon was to be seen and ho started
a'ool to his mother's home. When about
one mile from town he met a stranger in a
wagon, who called him by name and told
him that he was sent to convey him to his
mother's. Mr. Bozell took a seat beside
the man anil they travelled some distance
and overtook two men walking. The
driver asked them to get in his wagon, and
they took a seat behind Mr. Bozell. They
wero silent until a body of heavy timber
was reached, when Mr. Bozell received
two heavy blows float behind which
knocked him senseless; and the next morning
ho found hiiiinelf chained fast to a
true on a iiiuuiuain and his captor ne.ir
by. He was kept tied all day, and at
night was put into tho wagon and tho
march taken up. This was tho mode for
three days and nights.'
On the morning oi tho fourth day a fire
broke out on the mountain ami their
horses became frightened, and in tne confusion
he escaped. Being very weak his
nroL'ress was slow, but in a few davs ho
, came to tho Baltimore 0c Ohio Railroad
near about Cumberland. He then boarded
the train and arrived home on Friday.
Mr. Bozell now lies in bed in a critical condition,
with two ugly scalp wounds and
1 the marks of chains on his ankles. His
captors took his purse, containing $25,
and lus ttuilc. Ho thinks they were engaged
in a conspiracy to get him out of
'.lie road in the distribution of his uncle's
estate in Virginia.

alone. Mr. Denoal was aroused by a
noise, nnd taking his pistol, opened the
door loading into an adjoining room just
in time to see the outer door forced open
and a. man step into the room. He immediately
fired, tho ball passing directly
through the heart of tho intruder, who
fell forward on his face without uttoriuga
word. A neighbor who lived closo by.
hearing the shot, rushed to tho house and
dragged the body into tho moonlight on
tho porch, where it was discovered as that
of Ned Rives. Tho negro's feet wero
ruufiled in rags to avoid making a noise,
and his shoes wero found under a tree in
the yard. Mr. Dencal immediately sent
