Col. V. L, Brown, editor of the
New York Daily News, wagered in
that city on Saturday $20,000 to $12,
000 that the Democrats would carry
New York state. The of'.isr party to
the bet was a Mr. Tlllotson, of Massa
chusetts. The money was put up by
each and deposited in a trust company
for safe keeping.
An interesting programme has been
arranged for the ensuing centennial
meeting of the Presbyterian Synod of
Virginia, which begins at Old IVovi
dencc church Rockbridge county,
Tuesday, October 23. The opening
sermon will be preached by the mod

Local antiquarians and zoologists
are enchanted at present with a live
toad found in the course of railway
excavations at Greenock on the Clyde.
The toad, it is estimated, is from 20,
000 to 30,000 vears old, as the stratum
of clay in which it was found dates
from the glacial period. Its mouth is
sealed up. It breathes slightly through
the nostrils and, though the eyes are
quite expressive, it does not seem to
There are at the New York custom
house gold medals for the second of
ficer, carpenter and four sailors who
comprised the boat's crew of he
steamer City of Washington, which
rescued from the derelict Spanish brig
Catalina, off Cape Hattreas, on Au
gust 22, 1887, "ten seamen, a gentle
man (passenger) and a dog." The
rescue was made in a tempestous sea
and at much hazard of lives A Span
ish order was awarded to Capt. V. M.
Rettig, who commanded the City of
Washington at the time, which entitles
him to special honors and is a passport
to all military and social occasions in
Spam or any of its colonies. The
members of the boat's crew have
scattered to other parts of the world
but the medals will be given to them

New York, Chicago and Philadelphia
capitalists have secured an invention
belonging to a German, who for the
last two years has beeen experiment
ing in the manufacture of gas at a
cheap rate from some abundant mate
rial. This scientist has, it is said,
completed his experiments success
fully, and his agents now in this coun
try have proved to a select few the ad
vantages and the value of the discov
ery and invention A company has
been formed, of which George Gould,
of New York, Drexel, of the great
banking firm, and other large capital
ists of the metropolis and other large
cities are the principal members.
They will immediately establish an ex
perimental plant near Germantown,
Pa., and there prove the practicability
of the invention. Rights will then be
let, out to private individuals. The
manufactured article, it is thought,
will eclipse natural gas.
The authorities of Michigan State
penitentiary recently agreed to
a proposition made by the convicts
that, under .certain conditions, they
should be allowed to change the cus
tomary garb of gray and black stripes
for one of plain gray. To entitle a
prisoner to don the gray he must sign
a special agreement to implicitly
obey all the rules and regulations of
the prison, in spirit as well as in letter,
and must for six months have received
the highest possible rating (No. 10)
for good behavior. With these con
ditions fully met the convict becomes
entitled to his suit of gray, a mark of
honor. Nearly 80 per cent have al
ready earned their rights to these suits.
Repeated violations of these pledges
will work a forfeiture of the good time
earned and the suit of gray, It is be
lieved that this will prove one of the
most practical reformatory measures
ever adopted in prison life.
