they wt-re kppt under .'U ird. While Sheriff
Afcho and the pi i-sotier Tolbert were stand

I'nndle appenfed. Talbot wnlked out
facing him. Prindle then suddenly drew a
revolver, and, taking deliberate aim, bhot
Tolbert t!,ronh the hcurt. The latter fell
und expired with ut a word. Prindle w:is
about to tire a second time, but bystander
wrenched the pistol out of his hand. Tol

killing him and getting clear. He was a
low scoundrel, and people are glad he is

New Yoke, Nov. 15. Tho calendar of
the present term of the court of Oyer and
Terminer now in wHsion before Presiding
Justice Diivi8, contains fourteen murder
cures. The most interesting of these,
probably, is tlmt of Anicde E. Bigot, tho
Frenchman, who cut the thro it of Mm.

J. JItirzberg wus put on trial to-day
under an indictment of murder in tho first
degree in killing Xtivicr Lindhauer. Tho
two men were house painters, living at 42
Forsyth street. Lnst August, when killing
occurred, a quarrel aroso between them

Mcnzberg arrested. After his tlischargo
the quarrel was renewed. Menrberg got a
pistol, and secreting for Lindhuucr in his
own house shot him four times. Tho de
fense is insanity. Tho primmer sat iu court
to-day, with his head bound in a white
cloth, gazing with a stolid look on the
door, and paying no attention to tho two
Utile children who were playing at his

The Early History of Batter.
A writer in tho Troy Times says:
Baiter is mentioned several times iu
the Oi l Tegument, but is now gener.
ally believed by tho best authorities
that tho artiulo there alluded to was
not buUcr in our scie of the word,
but only croani, or sour milk. It is
highly probablo that butter was nut
known in tho early ago of tho world.
Tho oldest mention of real butter is by
Herodotus. Plutarch tells a story of
two noble ladies, one of whom Binellcd
so strongly of sweet, ointment and the
other ol' butter that they could not cn
d ii 10 each othors presence I It is said
that butter was scarcely known to tho
Greeks and Humans during tho second
century. Tito Greeks learned its uso
from Thrace, Scythia and soma of tho
region h uf Asia Minor. The Komans
obtained their knowledge of it from
tho Germans. Pliny ,und others say
that Germans used a great deal of
milk, and also mado il into butter and
cheese. Butter was U'-od, however,
molt) as modical ointment lhau as an
uriiclo of food. They used olivo oil
mora as wo use butler, and this is still
hugely tho case in tho countries of
Sou thorn Europe.
According to 2'i Englnh &VUist
thoixjis a plothora of money in Eng.
land. The money put away, quite
idlo, scokiug an investment, is suppos.
ed to be something like 91,00.1,000,000,
or nearly throe years of tho rovenuo.
"Old stockings and tea-pots" are
gorged, and will not hold an addition
al sovuroign. The trouble with those
who have the money, and who want
to invest it safoiy, is that all the sound
securities have been taken up, and can
only bo bought at largo advance, and
4 per cent Investments are apparently
unprocurable. For the last lour years
there has bcou iu England an era of
retrenchment. If people could not
earn money by curtailing thoir ex.
pcu-.es, they seem to havo mado both

credit. Tho total accumulations mado

yuur Englishman has been suspicious,
i'ho condition of Europe has not been
comfortable. Even now it is quit
