Japanese houses consist often of
only ono story, nnd very seldom of
moro than two. Thoy do not. of
course, re.setnblo ono nnothur exactly,
any more than English houses do; but
it may bo said of them generally that
they imvo no windows in our senso of
the word, and sometimes no regular
doors, but they are always provided
with a veranda beforo the lower story,
and, when they have a second story,
with a balcony.
As to solidity, it is a fact that the
Japanese do not ovon aim at making
their houses substantial, as English
houses are, or as, oven when con
structed by a "jerry builder," they
nrofess to bo. Tho outer walls of on
English houses aro always intended to
bo fixtures, and so far durable that
when 01100 put up they cannot bo
pulled down without sending for
workmen; but among tho Jupancso
two or 111010 of tho sides aro not per
manent walls, but aro closed with slid
ing screens, which can bo tet up and
taken down at tho pleasure of tho in
mates. On a hot day, or when thorough
ventilation is required, tho wholo sido
of a room can be opened to the outer
Of course, peoplo who arc not par
ticular about having a permanent
wall between their rooms and tho out
side world, do not caro to havo im
movable partitions between one part
of tho liouft and another. Although
in England rooms aro occasionally
parted from ono another by a curtain,
or by folding doors, yet, as a general
rule, they aro separated by walls,
which, however flimsy their construc
tion may be, aro Hxtures, and cannot
bo taken away and replaced at will.
Hut in Japan ono room is commonly

screen a framework of wood covered
with paper, which runs in a shallow
groove on tho floor and a deeper
groovo on 1110 celling, a pian wuicu

adding to or decreasing tho number of
their apartments at their pleasure.
Baron Nordenskjold, tho famous Arc

with which ho woko up ono morning

he turned his hoad In the direction of
tho door to sob what It was, whon
some unknown person 11 red at him,
the load taking offeot in his head uml

afterward by a nogro who had gono
there lor the purpose of buying sorao
gin, and, seeing Mr. Flueborg iu a
pool of blood, immediately informed
Mr.1 A. D. Martin, who lived near by,
of the fact. Mr. Martin and several
othor persons went to tho oceno of tho
tragedy, and in a short while a coro
ner's inquest was held and a verdict
was rouderod in accordnnco with tho
abovo facts. His remains woro
brought to his home at Pittsburg this
morning, and a post mortom exami

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 19. The
desire of the delegates to the general
assembly of Knights of Labor to con
tinue T. V. Powderly as their chief

Several delegates who represent Cana
dian assemblies called on him and
asked him to accept the office once
more. He gave them to understand
that he would do so providing that he
could choose his own advisers on the
genetal executive board. Everything
indicates that he will be given his wish
and there is now only a difference of
opinion regarding the way that it shall
be done. Under any circumstances

gence has reached here of the mur
der of Potterfield Brock, a well-to-do
widower, near Gilbert's Station, in
Albemarle county, by his married son
and the suicide of the latter. The
murdered man lived with his son on a
farm owned by the elder Brock, at
Paddy's creek. For some time the
murdered man had been engaged to
be married to Miss Norfolk, ofAl
bemarle, and on the day of the murder
went to Charlottesville and purchas
ed his wedding outfit. Fearing pos
sibly that when the old man brought
his pretty young bride home, it would
cause a breaking up of family relations
young Brock became despondent and
upon the fathers return home with his
wedding suit young Brock in a moment
of supposed mental aberration, shot
and instantly killed him and then left
home but soon returned and went to
bed. During the night he arose, got
his pistol and blew his brains 'out. His
wife, with several children, remained
in the house with the dead bodies of
the father and son until morning, when
