A Child's Corpse in a Sack.
Guxto, Io.,July 24. There are' no
new developments toward the discovery of
tho partie who were guilty of the murder
of the little chil4 which was found yester
day near this city sewn up in a sack. There
cannot be discovered any such woruan in
this neighborhood where tho child was
found, and it is the prevailing opinion that
it was thrown from a passing train. The
jury has found verdict of murder by un
known parties. ; The indignation is almost
strong enough j to lynch the parties if

A Squall on Lake Michig an.
Out ago, July 14. A squall which swept
over this city aUut halt-past rive o'clock
this afternoon, upset several small cratt iu
the lake, and it is feared one or two persons
were drowned. Twelve persons were saved
by Capt. Busccy, who gallantly put out
with his little steam yacht Pet iu the
height of the gale. Four more were rescued
by the life-saving men.
Olney, III., July 24. Lat night, be
tween 11 and 18 o'clock, a cutting affray
took place on 5Iain street, between Charlie
Hullister, son of James Hollister, a highly
respected citizen of this city, and Charlie
Scott, son of David Scott, one of our most
influential business men. Young Hollister
had been paying his attention to a young
lady of this city for the past several months,
and it seems that Scott, in some manner, in
sulted his sweetheart, which kindled his
wrath to such an extent that caused him to
vow vengeance against Scott. He started
out on the hunt for him, and met Scott on
Main street and demanded an apology,
which waa denied, whereupon a scuffle en
sued, in which Scott received a stab in the
back a dangerous and probably fatal
wound. Hollister is confined in jail await
ing a preliminary examination.

Tho following amusing incident is
related by a prominent young Repub
lican from west Virginia, who has a
keen sense of the ridlculou. a rich
vein of humor and fine Intelligence.
This young man has been strongly in
dorsed by the leading Republicans of
bis State for a position in the Con nil ar
service. With his gripsack stuffed
with papers and letters setting forth his
clnims to consideration, sueli as good
character, talent, oratorical ability,
campaign services rendered, etc., ho
came to this city in the early days oi
tho ' present administration. Imme
diately upon arrival he hied himself to
the State Department to remind Mr.
Blaine that West Virginia had been
"Solid" for bim in his presidential con
test, and now she wanted to he remem
bered for it. The Secretary promised
the young man an audience at a future
date. I:i s and woeks passed, but tho
fttturo dtiiH promised seemed to have
Strong in palienrn, but poor in pock
et, the gallant young Republican went
to his homo.
A few days ogo he returned, and, to
use Ids own language, he proceeded to
the department to see what prospect
thoro was for getting his grist ground.
He was ushered into the presence of
the private SecretaryWalker Blaine,
Esq., and the following interview took
"You folks are nicely fixed here. Is
your father at home?"
"Yes, sir; but he is engaged with the

be ignorant of our foreign relations."
I didn't know we had any foreign
relations. 1 thought wo were all Amer
icans and run the country to suit our
P.SfC (becoming impatient) "Well,
6ir, what can I do for you?"
"Ion may tell your father that I am
here and will advise him as to the
proper distribution of good consular
P. S-'c "My dear sir, permit me to
say to you in all kindness that the time
of' the 'Secretary is so absorbed that he
is uuab.e to see many of his most in
timate, personal and political friends."
"You don't think he'll be disappoint
ed at not getting to soo me?"
P. See. --"I hope not, sir."
"Well, I hope not, too."
Then th) young man was politely
bowed to the door; but he hesitated,
and returned and said:
"Ju-t one more request, Mr. Private
Secretary. I would like to take my
papr3 from the pigeon-hole, dust them
off, and return them. They are nice,
clean papers, well written, ou good pa
por. and 1 want good care taken of
them. Don't handle them very ofton,

It is the usual custom to kill a hor.se
that has had the misfortune to break a
leg, and as accidents of this kind are
quite common, many noble boasts are
lost very year on account of the want
of sufficient skill in veterinary surgeous
to treat a fracturod bone. An experi
ment is now being tried at Harrisburg,
which, if successful, may save tho lives
of many horses. A fine horse (dipped
on tho cobble-stono pavement and
broke its leg. Instead of being killed
it was taken to a livery stablo and put
inchargoof au experienced groom,
who put a pieco of strong canvas
around the horse's body, and by moans
of ropes and pulleys fasteuod to tho
Joists above drew him up so as to briug
tho lame leg entirely off tho ground!
By slightly Hexing his threo sound leg"
the patient can throw his wholo woiglit
on tho swing, and he does this when he
sleeps. At other times he generally
lightly rests his legs on the ground,
part of his weight being sustained by
the canvas. The fracture was adjust
ed and a thick ca.siugof plaster of Paris
put around tho log. Tho patient has
been in the swing three weeks, and it is
proposed to keep him there six weeks
onger. He has improved in condition
since the treat me tit begun, and is in
excellent heallhr If no unforeseen acci
dent occurs tho euro Is expected to be

slowly and softly; "and I wont to his

Parliamentary language is improv
ing, under tho benignant rule of tho
present loader of the Honso of Com
mons, almost as fast as the rest of our
institutions. Mr. Mitchell Henry re
cently movod that "tho letter signed!
Patrick Egau and published in tho
Freeman' K Journal of the 26th of May
is a breach of the privileges of thi
House." Thereupon Mr. Gladstone,
wdiile declaring that the proposition
was one which must bo allirmod, sug
gested that Mr. Mitchell Honj-y should
not persist in his motion. Subsequent
ly, however, Sir W. V. Harcourt gave
it as bis august opinion that a vote
should be taken on the motion. Upon
this Lord Randolph Churchill made
some severe but not by any means dis
courteous remarks on tho effect of Sir
William's advice. Thon ensuod the
following interchange of amenities.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, looking
at Lord Randolph Churchill, said to
him across tho floor of the House:
"You little ass!"
To whieh Lord Randolph not unnatu-.
Youd d fool!"
