"I is pretty hard to say what the failing

"Y' S, we have the first moulh'i work
In some thirty or more of the citlt s. Thy
show that tbe fates of stamps for tin;
month amounted to a little more, in cah
rcceipis, than in iho correcpondine ruontb
of Ian year. That you will observe, when
vou think of it, shows immense Increase In
tbe number of siamps sold, for It takes
a food many more stamps at two cents
to make a thouand dol.ars than at three

He put tbe short pip Into bla mouth
atra n aud puiled reflectively for a minuto
or so. "Of courtf, " he !Btd, "the re
colpts for last month are more than they
will average, lakii.e one month with an

purcbase until the reduction, and others
who de aypd certain elates ol their corres
pondence to await the date of the reduc

that the falling off in tbe receipts is not to

"How great, should you think?"

"On. undoubted y. You see tuere have
been but three years In the past twenty or
more in which tbe I)t partment has made Its
xpensts. Ills not intended that it shall
do more, and when It has come within a
few minimis o' that the peop'e have been

ba'ance at the end of the year, and
should d' tibtless have done so In the one

too much when we cut down the principal
source of Income 33 per cent., and eo on

Oar Mexican Visitors.
St. Locis, Nov. H. They are here.
Our Chihuahua visitors arrived at tbe
Union Depot this morning at 7:30 o'clock.
As the Mis-lour! Pacific train drew into
tbe depot the familiar form of Mr. S. II.
Laflin was seen standing on the platform of
tbe special Pullman car. "We are here at
lat," he said to Mr. Cahill the Mexican
Consul, who had ben patiently awiting
the arrival of
the iraln. "A
welcome you." responded Mr. Cahill.
Then as tbe train pulled up the various
members ot tbe St. Louis committee, ac
companied by one or more of the Cnlb.au
hau tiuests alighted from the car and
bundled their coats about them. It was
quite evident that the air was "an eRger
and a nipping" one to our guests, for they
shivered and shuddered and bustled about
as though over anxious to get to the bote!
and warm up.
ABOUT A DOZEN" CARRIAGES
nero In Malting at tbe main entrance to the
depot and as soon as tbe party could gather
themselves and their small lugca.e together
Mr. Cabiii led tbem out and began assign
I ig them carriages. Lieut. -Gov. Campbell
walked arm in arm with Dr. Muriano Sa
uauiego, who Is the trover nor of the State
Chihuahua and the moRt distinguished
member of tbe party. As soon as
tbey Were all comfortably stowed in
tbelr carriages a line was formed on Elev
?nth street, and tho band which had boen
in wait ng struck up a lively air, and the
procession moved along Eleventh to Mar
ket, down Market to Flftu and thence to
tbe Southern Hotel, where they were as
signed the rooms that bad been previously
engaged for tbem.
The following special deleeatlon of St.

Tbe visitors are a bright, Intelligent
looking set of gentlemen. Some of tbem

Pittsburg, Kov. U. Yesterday after
noon Mary RushoU, the lS-ycar-old ilauth
ter of a well-to-do mechanic, living In the
Eighteenth ward, died from tbe f fLxa of a
dose of areo!o, fa&en a few hours
beiora, !: Rueil was beauti
ful and highly accompllthed for
a girl of her station. Five years njo her
mother diiMl, and since then she h a man
aged the household affairs of bor fatner and
three brothers. This prevented htir from
participating in social pleasures to a great
extent. slie often complained of
this to her neighbors and al
io said that she was rruel
ly treated sometimes by her futbor and bro
thers. She received attention from several
young men, and some time ago It was sug
gested to her that she would better her
condition by gettltiif married. A propnail
came soon afterward and it was
accepted, tho wedding b'lng set for
some day next week. Her preparations
were all completed a day or two
ago, wnen bcr brothers, who knew al
about her engagement long before, de
clared that she should not marry the man
of her choice. She protested that she
would not obey, whereupon one of the
brothers took upon blniS'Uf the duty of In
forming bl pro-pective brother-in-law that !
they had decided not to allow Maty to et
married. Whether the young man accept
ed this a- final or not Is not knoA'n, but at
all events, a few days airo, Mary commen
ced to make threats that she wou.d take
her own life unless she was allowed to mar
ry. Her brothers continned obdurate, and
yesterday morning she procured an ounce
of ar-enic from a druirgist. When her
father camo botna to lunch ahe showed him
the white powder and, telling
him It was arsenic, mixed in with water
and swallowed the fatal doe. The broth
ers did not believe that the powder was
poisonous until its affects began to appear;
Then the physician was summoned, but
before his arrival tbe giri was writhing In
sgouy on the floor. At four o'clock in the
ifternoon her sufferings were ended by
death. Her bridal dress will be her shroud.

The Body Identiflud-Provea to be Tba
of a Man With a History.
Nr.w York, Nov. It. -The burglar who
was shot by Homer M. Choate, tbe caahlor
of tho ! aboard Bank of this city, is he was
escaping from Mr. Cboate'i houe In New
ark early Saturday morning, wis identified
yesterday by tbe name of the clothing firm
of Devlin Co., which was stamped Inside
thi) collar of his coat. Chief of Polio
Meld ruin, of Newark, sent Detective Smith
to the establishment named, and one of the
cutters disonveredtie name ''Ueo. Stone"
written on the Inside of the loop in the
back. By referring to the order book It
: was found that a suit of clothes had been
mado for a man by that name who had left
i directions to have tbem delivered at No.
23 Market street. When Inquiry was mado
at No. 2o Market street the housekeeper,
i Mrs Wallace, gave a reporter a history ot
the man so far as she knew. "Mr. Stone
first came to my bouse in the early part ot
last May," she laid. "He was anxious to
secure a quiet room down town aud was
willing to pay well for apart
' ments that suited him. I was lm
, pressed with the belief that be waa a re
I fpeciablo nun. Ho did not bring any refer,
i euees, but when speaking about them be
! ald that there were many better meu in the
' world than himself, and laughingly added
i that he was not the worst. After snowing
1 blm my vacant rooms, he concluded to en
, g.iL'e tho front apartment on tbe top floor,
j nid paid mo i'i in advance for the first
'week. He then said, 'My name is George
tone, and I trust that we will get along
nicely together. ' He has been with us ever
I do not remember of his re-
maining over nlgbt but a few times, when
he said that be would be obliged to go to
It'i'iuii or Philadelphia on business and
would probably not return for a day or two.
none was a quiet, unassuming roan, and
unless there was something to bring about a
conversation he bad very little to say. He
conducted himself in a very gentlemanly
manner and was what Is coniidered a desir
able lodi'er. He always maintained that be
was not In active business and explained
lhat he received a private Income lrora his
faihcr's estate. Mi. Stone
left the house on Friday af
ternoon at 4 o'clock. He appeared some
n hat agitated and was evidently anxious to
leave the house. He came into the sitting
room and handed m,' tbe key to his room,
saying that be was in a hurry. He wore
the eoat In which his dead body whs found.
I could not believe that Mr. Stone had been
shot as a burglar, and even now It Is too
much to believe that the body which now
lies In the morgue at Newark is that ot the
man who has been such a gentlemanly In
mate of my house. "
At this point in tbe conversation Miss
Nellie Wallace, the 17-year-old daughter of
the landlady, entered the room, having Jnst
relumed from Newark, where she had
viewed the hody of the burglar. "It's
George, mother, " the young lady said, as
she unbuttoned her sack. "I recognized
bis face the moment the white cloth was
lifted from the coffin. His clothing Is tbe
same he wore when we saw him last."
"Are you sure Its Mr. Stone, Nellie?"
aked the mother.
"Oh, yes. I'm positive it's
he. You remember be bad
a tooth missing from tbe upper Jaw. Well,
his mouth was ODen a little and I saw tbe
vacant space to tho right of tbe two large
teeth in front."
In conversation with tbe young lady the
reporter learned that Stone had told her
that bis parents lived at Newark, N. J.,
and that be had been brought up in Asto
ria, L. I., where be was born. Mr. Stone,
agroceryman, whose establishment is near
the Ninety-second street ferry in that place,
does not remember any person who went to
school lo Astoria by that name. In a letter
to the World Rev. A. L. Arnott of Jack
snnvlile. Fla., says: "I cn give you in
nrtef ih b "orr of the unfortunate burg
lar Wh' i-a i.i.ied in Newark on Saturday
iat. After reading tbe description of tbe
dead malefactor in the newspapers I went
over to .Newark to view the body. I was
convinced that I could unravel tbe mystery
as soon as I saw tbe corpse, and since see
ing the statement of the people with whom
he boarded in this city I am satisfied the
real name of the unfortunate man who was
known here as George Stone was Albert S.
Davidson. H ws born in Selnia, Aia.
His parents were in moderate circumstan
ces, but he early developed a taste
for books and learning. I remember him
BRIGHT AND PROMISING YOCTH.
He was remarkable for his memory and his
ability to quote poetry. When about 19
years of ago he fell in love with a young
lady named Clarissa Dubois, who will bo
remembered by sll old citizens of Selma as
a belle in ber day. He hail a rival in Jas.
Darlington. One night they met lu a drink
ing saloon, and in a quarrel Davidson
struck Darlington on the head with a de
canter, fracturing his skull. He ran away
and for some time lived in Florida, where
he worked on au orange plantation. When
the war broe out he Joined a South Caro
lina regiment, but deserted and took ser
vice on the rebel cruiser Shenandoah. He
had many wild adventures, some ot which
he related to me ten years ago at Marseilles,
France, where I happened to meet blm.
While I was at Nice in 174 he was arrested
for picking a Russian's pocket In the
Casino at Monaco. I helped to get blm
out ot tbe scrape. lie told me then that be
had fallen Into bad ways aud I was pre
pared at any time to hear a bad report of
him. I met him for tbe last time In this
city about two years ago at the corner of
Prince street and Broadway. He
spuke to me for a moment onlv and nur
Tied away, UN father, who was an excel
lent man was killed in the war. He be
longed to an Alabama reelment and fell In
tbe fighting around Petersburg. His
mother died about a year after bis disap
pearance from Selma. While at Mar
seilles be told me that his life had been
wrecked bv a difficulty which he had been
accidentally involved In with some Italian
officers at Port Mahoue. I Inferred from
what he said that he had committed a
murder. He was servlug at the timo on
tbe Confederate cruiser. He was natural
ly a bright fellow. He was impulsive and
rash, but, under favorable auspices,
would have made a useful member of so
ciety. I be Hive be has a married sister
living at Eufala, Ala."
