The Right Sort of a Girl.
A girl aged 15 years, was sitting In
her house, near Memphis, the other
day when a tramp approaching insisted,
In spile of her remonstrance, upon en
tering. "You bad better not," she said,
"or you will get what you do not want."
She laid down her knitting and took her
slx-shooter from her work-basket. The
tramp entered so did a ball just below
the shoulder. A neighbor, rushing In
and seeing her quietly knitting with
the pistol reposing In the work basket,
asked if she shot hiui. "Yes," she an
swered, "and if Lie had kept on coming,
I would be shooting until now." The
girl is pronounced by a Memphis paper
"to be worth her weight In gold dol
lars," but whether this is a valuation of
her estate, or of herself as a protection
pjjalnst tramps is not stilted with exactness.

When he emerged from the jam Mr.
Booterbaugh found the watch dangling
from his coat buttons, but had no Idea

A Bogus Juror,
At the trial of Mount, In Philadelphia,
charged with election fraud, it was
discovered on Monday of last week that a
ward rounder was personatinga respect
able citizen drawn on the jury, but who
did not attend because of absence from
the city. He was immediately locked
up and the Jury dismissed. They stood
eleven to one for conviction, the round
er being the one who had made prepara
tions to hold out for acquittal. It is be
cause of this jury fixing that all impor
tant political criminals have escaped
punishment. A new Jury was empan
nelled, and the case again put on trial.
On Wednesday Mouat plead guilty, and
was sentenced to $1000 tine and two
years in the penitentiary.
v Saved by a Woman.
U. S. Marshal Wilcox, of Denver,
arrived at Detroit recently having In
custody Henry Vf. White, alias Burton,
who is under sentence of ninety-nine
years for robbing a stage coach near Del
Norte, New Mexico. When about three
miles east of Pokagon, ou the Michigan
Central railroad, the convict picked the
lock of his handcuffs with a toothpick
and ferociously attacked Marshal Wilcox.
The convict first struck him on the bead
with the handcuffs, when Wilcox grap
pled with him in a dazed way. White
struck Wilcox again and brought him to
his knees. There were seventeen men In
the car, who saw the whole affair, but
who left the officer to struggle alone with
the desperate man fighting for liberty.
In the encounter White seized Wilcox's
revolver and tried to shoot him. Mrs.
Smlthson, wife of a Denver engineer on
her way to New York, and the only
woman In the car, sprang upon the seat
behind and caught the convict's arm.
The men in the car then seized the con
vict around the neck, enabling the Mar
shal to once more secure control of him.
White says if he could have got a bullet
through Wilcox, he would have covered
the passengers with the revolver in one
hand while he untied his ankles with the
other, "and then gone through every
one of the infernal cowards." The Mar
shal says that Mrs. Smlthson declined a
leward, but that he is going to send to
her New York address a draft for $500
before he Is forty-eight hours older.
A Strange Suicide.
The Greenville, N. Y. Advocate says :
W. B. Minis, a prisoner at the Jail, met
with a singular death on Saturday,
About 0 o'clock that night Mr. Porter
field, as the night was quite cool ordered
the prisoner to be covered with blankets
aud on entering the cell to see If this was
done he noticed that the prisoner's head
was in an uncomfortable position. When
be attempted to readjust it he found that
the prisoner was cold aud stiff, with a
hat thrust Into his mouth. Corouer
King was immediately sent for, when a
Jury was summoned' and . the prisoner
examined by Dr. Herbert. The Inquest
was adjourned to Monday morning,
when the Jury found that, "deceased
committed suicide by choking himself to
death with his hat, while In a state of
desperation." The hat was found to be
twisted and thrust Into the mouth and
throat with suou force that the tongue
was dislocated, and some difficulty was
had In pulling the hat out.
Expenses of Garfield's Illness.
The Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun says : "One of the first
things to be done In Congress will be the
taking of some action with reference to
the payment of the very heavy expenses
Incurred by the Illness of the late Presi
dent. It seems to be accepted that if
Congress assumes the payment the three
civilian physicians, Drs. Bliss, Agnew
and Hamilton, will not expect less than
$25,000 each for their services. They
consider, It Is said, that the direct loss to
them from Inattention to their regular
practice, expenses, &c, will amount to
one-half of this sum. No bills, it Is said,
growing out of the care of the President
during his illness have been rendered,
although Mrs. Garfield has in several
Instances requested that they be sent to
her. Of course if Congress is to pay the
bills, every one concerned will render
much larger accounts than if Mrs. Gar
field was to settle, and Dr. Bliss has In
timated that he and his associates would
not take anything from Mrs. Garfield If
the Government Bhould not pay. The
proposition which appears to meet the
most favor is that Congress shall desig
nate, or authorize the President to des
ignate, one or more persons to act as a
commission to audit all bills, which, on
their report, shall be paid by the Secre
tary of the Treasury."
Four Children Blown to Atoms.
The dwelling house of Mr. Joe Ingram
near Mount Union, was totally demol
ished about 8:80 o'clock on Monday
morning by the explosion of a quantity
of giant powder. Mr. Ingram is a miner
In the employ of Mr. John Whitehead,
proprietor of Lucy furnace. It appears
that he placed several " sticks" of the
glaut powder in the oven of the cook
Btove while breakfast was being prepar
ed, which ignited and not only blowed
the house Into atoms, but killed outright
four little children, the eldest of which
was a girl of 12 years. They were liter
ally torn Into unrecognizable masses of
human flesh. Mrs. Ingram, as well as
the little ones killed, was blown clea
outside the bouse and badly hurt, al
though Bhe Is still living and couscious.
Mr. Ingram was found in the cellar
under the debris, considerably injured,
but conscious, The house was situated
about a half mile from Mount Union,
but the shock of the explosion was sen
sibly felt there. Those who were pres
ent decsribe the affair as being a horrible
and sickening sight. A- fifth child was
also badly Injured, but hopes are enter
tained of its recovery. Mr. Ingram has
A Swindler Swindled.
Nathan Sales, of Itoxand, Mich., was
caught by a patent wagon-tongue-supporter
swindler, for whom he signed an
order. In a few days, to his surprise,
another fellow called and presented a
note for $200 over the signature Sales
had signed to the supposed order.
Sales smiled said It was all right, put
bis band into his pocket' as If for bis
wallet, and then asked the fellow to let
him see the note a moment. The fellow
reached it out, when Sales pocketed itand
kicked the defeated rascal out of doors.
He got out of that scrape cheapor than
its victims usually do.
A Legal Fight.
Two Philadelphia lawyers, J. Warren
Coulston and Edward F. Hoffman, not
content with waging war on Society,
pitched Into each other In the office of
one of them the other day. For fully five
minutes they rolled over the floor, goug
ing, biting punching and pulling at each
other. Result both men presented the
appearance of having just emerged from
an encounter with a threshing machine,
with faces scratched, eyes blackened,
hair on end, and clothes tattered and

The loading article In the Worth Amtriean
Itevitn for January, contains the Judgments
of five of the most distinguished American
antborltles upon "The Moral Responsibility of
the Insane." Just at present this subject oc
cupies a very prominent place In the minds of
the American people ; but quite apart from its
momentary Interest, as connected with the ex
traordinary trial now In progress In Washing
ton, the problem of determining the fact of In
sanity, and fixing the limits of responsibility
of the Insane, is one that in Itself possesses an
Irresistible attraction for every generous mind.
The wreck and ruin of Intellect appeals at
once to our highest sympathies, and to what
ever Is noblest la human curiosity. The au
thors selected for the discussion of this subject
are Drs. Beard and Scguln, of New York, Dr.
Elwell, of Cleveland, Dr. Jewell, of Chicago,
and Dr. Folsom, of Boston. The other arti
cles In tho January number of the Rovlew are
as follows : "The New Political Machine," by
Wm. Martin Dickson "Shall Women Prac
tice Medicine 1" by Dr. Mary Putnam Jacobl ;
"The Geneva Award and the Insurance Com
panies," by O. B. Cole t and "A Chapter of
Confederate History," by F. G. Ruflin,
The announcement Is made that the Februa
ry number of the Review, to be Issued January
15th, will contain Part III. or the "Christian
Religion" series of articles, and that It Is to be
a very able defence of the Christian falib.

Gentlemen's Clolhes. The fashions
for this fall are generally characterized
by neatness In designs of goods as well
as cut of garments.
The coat, however, most generally
worn is the B. B. Walking Coat, both
skirt and waist being of medium length,
and the coat beinjr. rather close-fitting all
over and buttoning high. If designed
for dressy wear, the coat buttons with
one button. If for business wear, a four
button coat is generally preferred, with
false flaps on the side. For rough and
Scotch goods the Hack Coat Is in favor,
and Is cut rather short and snug-fitting.
There Is a tendency to cut Vests a
little lower than last season, and with
Fancy Vests are again coming into
favor In London.
