As a sequel to last Sunday's mass
meeting at Dallas another meeting is
called for Thursday to organize a law

The wires this morning report a con
flagration in Oregon, in which the
town of Roslyn was swept away, two
hundred and fifty houses burned and
fifteen hundred people rendered home
less. Pinkerton's detectives are said to
be in every general offie of the K. of

A colored preacher has committed
the whole Bible to memory. It is a

Blondin, the famous iope-valker, is
willing to repeat his old-time feat of
walking across the gorge below Ni
agara Falls on a rope for the sum of
$10,000. It is said that Imre Kiralfy,
the theatrical Manager, will pay the
price, and arrange for the exhibition
in about three weeks.
lialveston is fully aroused to the
danger which threaten her in the ag
itaion of a deep water port. She is
shaken out of the Rip Van Winkle
sleep of a half century. Yesterday at
a large mass-meeting of business men
a very large delegation of her most
representative men was appointed to
the Denver deep water convention
and they will move heaven and earth
to prevent movements putting the in
terests of Galveston at hazard.
The telegraph reports Mr. Moore
and Mrs. Norton, the celebrated elop
ers, living cosily at Idaho Springs, a
short distance west of Denver, billing
and cooing as man and wife, while
the real husband sits solitary and
alone by his desolate hearth in St.
Louis, wife and money gone, and the
real wife is weeping on the bosom of
her mother in her childhood's home
in New Jersey. And yet there wasn't
power enough in the law to punish
the man who broke up two homes,
because he was not a common adul
The British cousul at Ningo calls
the attention of British manufacturers
to spinning machines used in his dis
trict that were imported from Japan
and which, he thinks, will eventually
be adopted in cotton producing coun
tries. The advantages claimed for
them, as compared with the method
of spinning used in America, are that
the staple is less injured and the seeds
are better cleaned. This is attained
by drawing the cotton between straight
steel edges or knives, insted of using
A recent writer in Japan suggests
that we should, instead of sending
them missionaries, ask them to send us
a few. He says "the Japanese are
temperate. To a visitor, tea and not
alcoholic liquors are offered. There
are no standing bars in Japan, and no
public drinking of liquors that intoxi
cate. The Japanese are polite. Their
honesty is attested by the fact that the
shop is often left by the proprietor
"with nobody m while he goes to
distant part of the city. There are
no bolts and bars on public or private
houses. The Japanese are humane.
Horses are rarely beaten, and oxen
drawing loads have awnincs fastened
over them. Cattle for slaughter
are carefully led. Gunning for sport
is unknown. At school, the children
of nobles are poorly dressed, to avoid
injuring the feelings of poorer chil
dren. They are a'so remarkably hos
pitable and courteous."
"An extraordinary outburst of pop
ular savagery," says a Vienna dis
patch, "has just ocuurred at Bosard,
a village near Kaschau. A girl who
is a native of the village, was married
to a peasant from another village, but
after the wedding a number of young
men of Borsad tried to prent her from
departing to her new home. The
bride managed to escape, out on
seeing this the young men set fire to
the cottage of her parents, and the
flames quickly spread to other cot
tages. A murderous fight then began
between these young ruffians and
the bride's friends, with the result that
eight peasants were killed and about
twenty of both sexes injured. The
arrival of a detachment of mounted
gendarmes put an end to the affray,
and the leaders were marched off to
Allen Bedingfield, of Macon, Ga.,
has a mule that is perhaps the oldest
mule in the service to-day. Just be
fore the war Mr. Bedingfield's father
purchased a pair of fine sleeck mules,
and during the war one of them died.
When the war ended and th Federal
soldiers were rummaging over the
country taking everything availa
ble, one of Col. Howland's couiiers
went into Mr. Bedingfield's lot to get
old "Puss." The mule seemed to
know a Yankee from a Confederate
soldier, and hated Yankees intensely.
When the opportunity presented Puss
let fly her heels and struck the cou
rier's saber, knocking it fully ten feet
away. The courier ran for the fence,
but while in the act of getting over
Puss caught his coat-tails and bit off
half of them. She is now between
forty and forty-five years of age, and
is good for service.

which given here on last Sunday,

Deputy Marshall Everidge came for
the Martin boys to-day and carried
them to Fort Smith, where Joe Martin
will be tried for murder of Adams
ane his brother held as accessory.
BALiiAS, July 23. About. 2 o'clock
yesterday morning the residents of
Pacific avenue, noar Sycamore streot
wer aroused by a man yolllng lustily,
"musdor! murder! Police! police'!"
Several parties ran out of their houses
half-dressed and armed with six
shooters. They found on tho street a
man, seemingly under tlio influence
of drink, who informed them that ho
had been preyed upon by a highway
man, but who did not seem to have a
a very clear idea as to details.
