authorities disavow any connection with the

that the scheme is but a continuation of the

Dr. Stacker , chaplain to the German
court , lectured upon German socialism at
London on the 14th. A large and unruly
crowd was present , who frequently cheer
ed , hissed and groaned the lecturer , and in
terrupted him with insulting cries and epi

great that Dr. Stocker Indignantly left the
"hall , and the meeting ended in confusion.
It is stated that Henry Chaplin ,
member of parliament for Lincolnshire ,
proposes to continue his effort to induce the
government to restrict the importation of
cattle from the United States.
The prison rules heretofore prevented
Pryor seeing O'Donnell except with the
permission of the home department. The
solicitor for O'Donnell wrote the home sec
retary asking permission for Pryor to see
nls client. .The secretary replied that Pryor
might make personal application , stating
that the grnunds for the request Pryor
made required the application on the sole
grounds of his being one of the counsel , and
deemed it expedient for the defense that he
should see him. The home department
thereupon granted the request. The pris
oner was afforded every facility by tke offi
cials of Newgate for the Interview , which
lasted two and a half hours. Propositions
for O'Donnell's defense are well advanced.
Roger A. Pryor had a long and satisfactory

visited O'Donnell and formally ascertained
the fact of his American citizenship.
It is understood that Marquis Tseng
returned to Paris because of a more con
venient way for carrying on negotiations.
The Liberte says the negotiations are likely
to be resumed upon a basis which will allow
China to retain Boc Ulnt.
A Paris dispatch asserts that Marquis
Tseng , Chinese embassador , is prepared to
present an ultimatum to the French govern
ment and demand his passports , if the
French forces in Tonquin make an attack
upon Bacrtinh and Soiitay.
Diegers , the Russian minister of for

visit Bismarck. It is reported that the crown
prince will meet the king of Italy when're-
turning from his visit to the king of Spain.
The National Zeitung says : Diegers
expressed a firm friendship for Germany ,
and declared that he stopped at Berlin by

The German consul at Tamatone ,
Madagascar , has been Instructed to hoist the

The tone of the French press upon the .pro

Bismarck mainly desires to discuss with
Degiers , the foreign minister , the eUte of
affairs in Bulgaria. Germany will Bend a

FRANCE AND CHINA.
In an interview Marquis Tsenz de
clared that recently the situation betweei
France and China has become very critical
owing to the proceedings of the French , thi
Government's- repeated votes in the cham
her of deputies , and the Juxtaposition o
Chinese and French troops. Many well
armed and regulated Chinese regulars hav <
crossed the frontier and encamped at Bac >
mint , where they are closely watching th (
movements of the French. Notwithstand
ing the movements of the French fleet , thre <
army corps of 10,000 men each , and equip'
ped in European fashion , can on very short
notice , march by three different routes
against the French. Among th
Chinese troops are many European
and American engineers. The French may
be able to throw a few bombshells into Can
ton , but it would be difficult for their fleet
to approach the place , as the water is too
shallow. France must first give warning if
she contemplates a hostile demonstration to
the merchant vessels of all nations .here. II
the Canton Mandarins are energetic the na
tives will fight well , and the French will
find them worthy foemen. Chinais receiv
ing encouragement and material aid from all
sides. I have received no communication
from the French government since my last
arrival in Paris. I shall return to Folke
stone almost immediately. Concluding he
said : China ardently desires peace and de
plores that the situation daily becomes more
aggravated. She will recognize , however
regretfully , the accomplished facts and leave
to France the towns and forts captured
south of Red river. China is determined ,
however , to hold Bacmint against- com
ers with the , greatest energy. The passage
of the Red river will certainly be a declara
tion of war. China is perfectly aware that
Admiral Coubet is preparing for a campaign
against the Chinese. He repeatedly sends
telegrams demanding boats of light draught
and depends entirely on France to avoid
war. France must 'stop at once. Tomorrow
row may be too late.

DEAR SIR : I am using Warner's Safe
Cure , and I regard it as the best rem
edy for some forms of kidney disease
that we have. I am watching with great
care some cases I. am now treating
with it , and I hope for favorable results.
I wish you might come down yourself ,
as I would like very much to talk with
you about your sterling remedy , and
show you over our institution.
Yours truly ,

"I do not see why anybody should be
skeptical concerning that letter , " re
marked the doctor.
"Isn't it unusual for a physician of
your standing and influence to com
mend a proprietary preparation ? "
"I don't know how it may be with
others , but in this institution we allow
no person to dictate to us what we shall
use. Our purpose is to cure the sick ,
and for that work we use anything we
know to be valuable. Because I know
Warner's Safe Cure is a very valuable
preparation , I commend it. As its
power is manifested under my use , so
shall I add to the completeness of my
commendation. ' *
"Have you ever analyzed it , doctor ? "
"We always analyze before we try
any preparation of which we do not
knoTr the constituents. But analysis ,
you know , only- gives the elements ; it
does not give the all-important proper
tions. The remarkable power of War
ner's Safe Cure undoubtedly consists
in the proportions according to which
its elements are mixed. " While there
may be a thousand remedies made of
the same elements , unless they are put
together in proper proportions , they are
worthless as kidney and liver prepara

To Keep Autumn Leaves Bright.
New York Sao.
Autumn leaves are very fashionable
this year as parlor decorations. All
the large florists are getting them in
large quantities , and , after they are
prepared , sell them at 25 cents a dozen.
The leaves in greatest demand are oak
leaves , which , dried and varnished , tire
placed about picture frames and in
bunches on the walls. Leaves' from the
chestrAit tree , which are said to retain
their green color , are often mixed in
amonor the oak leaves , which are of a
On any clear Saturday bevies of
young girls may be seen in Central
1'ark gathering leaves. The maple
leaves and sumac are greatly sought
for. They are garrid home and
pressed. They often * fail to keep their
color. A florist said yesterday that the
best way to preserve leaves was to press
them between blotting paperor some
other soft paper.
"After several days , " he said , "take
them out and stamp the paper , lest the
moisture cause the leaf to rot. Keep
changing the paper at intervals until
the leaves are thoroughly dry. Then
they will look dull. ' The colors will
verge toward the brown , and the col
lector , who has not had experience , may
imagine that the color is fading. This
is not so. The color has to be t > rought
out by oil , varnish or wax.
I prefer oil. The next best
thing is to varnish the leaves with a
thin white varnish. I do not approve
of waxing , for it makes the leaves too
brittle. The leaves are rubbed over
with wax and then ironed with a warm
flatiron. Formerly wreaths and orna
ments were made out of pressed leaves ;
now they are only used for pictures and
to decorate walls. To my mind the
handsomest leaves are the maple. They
are of almost every tint. We often
find the palest canary , yellow , orange ,
and red on the same leaf. They are
also easy to press.11
At the florist at the southeast cor
ner of Broadway and Twenty-third
street the reporter saw a large box
filled with mingled oak and chestnut
"These are the only kind of leaves
which we press this year1 the young
lady in charge said. "We Ipress the
leaves and then varnish them. "
"What kind of varnish do you use ? "
"I really don't know , " she replied ;
"we buy it at a paint store a few blocks
"Is there much sale for dried leaves ? "
"Yes , indeed. "We sell a great many.
After they are prepared we charge 25
cents a bunch. There are about a
dozen in a bunch. \

"I will absolutely have no further
communication with my husband , "
said Mrs. Annie Ronnie in thoDceertion
Court yesterday. "Ho has ill-treated
me ; he has used profane language to
me ; he throws egg-shells in my face and
twice ho struck me. "
"But if he should give you assurance
that these things sbi\A not be repeated ;
that he will treat you kindly , leaving it
to me. to use strong measures if ho
should fail to keep his promise , what
then ? " asked Judge Allison. "Would
you not try him again and go live with
him ? "
"No ; I shall not seem him again. "
"That is a wrong disposition , " an
swered the court. "Marriage is com
ing to be too lightly regarded in this
city. There are causes that justify a
wife in separating from a husband
and a husband in leaving his wife ; but
they are no trifles. Every cause is not
such a cause. Husbands and wives

In the case in hand Andrew llennie ,
the husband , ascribed all his troubles
to his mother-in-law , and said that ho
wished to have his wife back and had
rooms awaiting her return. The
mother-in-law denied that she was at
all to blame and declared that her son-
in-law misfortunes were all upoa his
own head. Mrs. llennie said that she
would make : i living for herself and
asked only that her husband might be
decreed to contribute to the support of
his two little children. The judge de
clined to make an order for the time ,
but suggested that the support ought to
be given , "and as an incentive to a
reconciliation , " he added , addressing
the husband , "as an evidence of your
good will , you should contribute to the
maintenance of your wife also. Then
when you prove "to her that you really
mean to do well , I hope that you will
come together again. "
"No , " said the wife , in low , decided
tones ; "no , I trusted him before. I
will not try him again. "

The Peculiar Old Mystery 1
It was one of the peculiarities of the old-lashioned Doctors that they
never would tell patients what they were prescribing for them. They said
it would do the patients no good to know , and that it would only be grati
fying a foolish curiosity. In order to keep patients from knowing , they
would write the prescriptions in dog-Latin , so that most patients could not
read them. All that sort of thing is now over. Thepatientwants to know what
he takes. He is weak , and wants to be strong , or he is dyspeptic , and
wants to digest well. Or lie has a troublesome liver which he wants to
put to rights. So he takes Brown's Iron Bitters about which there is no
mystery at all. This is the best preparation of iron -in the world , in com
bination with gentle yet efficient tonics. It gives strength. It builds up
enfeebled systems. It enriches impoverished blood. It removes' feminine
weaknesses. It casts out debility. It is what YOU want , and your ckuggist
has it. 2 "
