The ai-ti-Mormon bill, which has been so promptly passed by the house, differs in some important respects from the bill which was sent over from the senate last winter. The first section is amended so as to permit instead of compel the husband or wife to testify in all prosecntions for polygamy and unlawful cohabitation. The second section is amended so to as require the written affi davit of two creditable persons before the at tachment of a witness without previous sub poenas. The third section of the senate bill, which extended from two to five years the limitation for prosecntions for bigamy, was stricken ont. The fourth section, which makes every marriage a matter of pnblic record, is pieserved. The fifth section, which anthorized the seizure for nse in legal pro ceedings of any certificate entry or other record concerning any marriage ceremony, is stricken out. The sixth section, which au thorizes proof of marriage by any evidence now admissible; the seventh section, which denies suffrage to woman; the eighth sec tion, which secures the secrecy of the ballot; and the ninth section, which limits the jurisdiction of probate conrts in Utah to probate business, thus leaving all civil busi ness to the United States conrts, are pro served; the tenth section is amended so as to provide that the disinheriting of legitimate children shall not apply to any child born within twelve months after its enactment. Sections 14, 15 and 16 are some of the most notable parts of the bill. These sec tions annnl all acts of the legislative assem bly of Utah, and of the so-called general as sembly of the State of Deseret incorporat ing, continuing or providing for the corpo ration known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, aud the corporation known as the Perpetual Emigration Fund company, and make it the duty of the attor ney general of the United States to take pro ceedings to declare void and to dissolve said corporations, and to pay the debts and dis pose of the property aud assets thereof ac cording to law and equity. No wonder the head Mormons are gloomy. If this bill becomes a law, as it probably will, their power will be curtailed in such a way as to make their efforts to further npbuild Mormonism in Utah com paratively unfruitful. These are doleful days for the Latter Day Saints. EII1TORI4L NOTES. Strikes are costly and usually unprofitable affairs. The New York State board of ar bitration reporls that the reoent strike in the Troy laundries cost the strikers half a million in wages and the capitalists $300,000. An interesting libel suit in Georgia is the outgrowth of a statement by one man that another got drnnk and slept in a haystack all night. The plaintiff stands ready 10 prove that he slept at home, the men who carried him there being friends of his. When John M. WiUon, who was hung in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Thursday, was standing on the scaffold with the noose aronnd his neck he exolaimed: "I am per fectly happy." Before this he had publicly prayed for the futnre welfare of the young daughter of the man he killed. Young doctor, go to Knssia. There are 25,810 doctors in Great Britain, or one for every 1,350 inhabitants. In France the pro portion is one for 1,400; in Austria, Germa ny and Norway, one for every 1,500; in the United States, one for every 600, while in Russia there is only one for 6,226. No less than forty-five wrecked railroads, with 7,687 miles of main line, were sold un der foreclosure in 1886. These properties were capitalized at $374,109,700, or about $50,000 a mile. With honest capitalization, honest construction and honest management it is probable that few, if any, of these roads would have had to be sold. It costs something to do the carting re quired in New York city. There are about 30,000 trucks employed in handling mer chandise in the eitv. Of this uuinber about 10,000 double trucks are nsed by wholesale houses. - An experienced truckman places the yearly cost of each double truck, including interest, feed of horses, attendance, etc., at $2,000, making $20,000,000 annually for the 10,000 trncks. When to this is added the profits of truckmen the aggregate will be not less thau $25,000,000. If the idea of some of the military en gineers of Europe concerning forts finds gen eral approval much expense in preparing for war can be saved. What is the use, they say, of building tremendously costly forts of iron or steel in order to proteot the guns when they can be much better protected by simply sinking them in the ground out of sight, and, of course, out of reach of the enemy, with elevating machinery to raise them when they are fired, and sink them again when the shot has been discharged The fort is therefore simply a hole in the ground, and even a large hole is not expen sive. The gun would be exposed to the ene my's fire only for a few seconds t a time. It conld be reached only by a vertical or plunging fire, and the chances of shots fired in that mariner reaching their mark are in finitely few. The gunner, as well as the gun, would be protected from the enemy's fire, and it would be easy to contrive means of sighting and firing the gun by electricity, directed by a person a mile or more distant. It is even thought that machinery operated by electricity for loading the gun can be con structed so that all the fighting force may be at a safe distance. Even the members of the conference com mittee of tfie senate and house whd are re sponsible for the inter-State commerce bill in its present form do not seem to know how its provisions would af fect the roads and those who ase them. This being the cae the follow ing, from the Boston Herald, is good advice: Considering the enormous interests that are at stake, and considering, also, that the passage and enforcement of such a law might seriously injure the trade of certain cities or certain sections of this country, it would seem to be desirable, before taking definite action, to be assured beyond a doubt as to the effect of n application of the law in all ordinary cases. We should say that for this purpose it might be desirable to ap point a national railroad commission, and ask its members to investigate and report upon the effect of a law eimilar to that which is now proposed; that is, to apply this suggested staue to the various condi tions that largely control inter State com merce, and see what the result would be in each individual case. RECENT PUBLICATIONS. "Youth in Twelve Centuries" is a little book giving in poetry the story of promi nent characters in history in centuries rang ing from 1500 B. C. to 1813 A. D. Among the characters are Taia, of Thebes; Claudia and Yespatian, of Borne; Gamaliel, of Jeru salem; Zabra, of Bagdad; Lippo, of Flor ence:. Andre, of Paris; Jonathan, of Boston; aud Dorothy, of Philadelphia. The poems are by M. E. B. The drawings are those of F. Childe Hassam. D. Lothrop & Co., pub lishers, Boston. For sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. Arthur Syinons has recently prepared an "Introduction to the Study of Browning." It is a work which directs attention to the best of this poet, and gives information more or less detailed abont each of his works. At the end are reprinted the interesting and now almost inaccessible prefaces to some of his earlier works. The book is divided as follows: General characteristics; character istics of the poems; appendix a biography of Robert Browning and the reprint of the discarded prefaces. To one contemplating the study of Browning the work will be very valuable. Cassell & Co., publishers, New York. For sale M this city by Judd the bookseller. "Ways and Means" is a new novel from the pen of Margaret Vandegrift, ant'ior of "Doris aud Theodora," "The Queen's Body guard," etc. The book is one which presents a variety of scenes aud of reading in the same story. The plot is well developed and suggestive; the characters are well drawn and the methods set forth in the work are iu general excellent and worth remembering. For light reading it is excellent and for fic tion strangely real. The author will be re membered by her former works, and her new work will no doubt meet with the same gen erous reception as its predecessors. Porter & Coates, publishers, Philadelphia. For sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. "Stanley Huntingdon" is an interesting novel by Sydney J. Wilson. It is a work tracing the development of mind in the South, which is disencumbering itself of the ideas and customs with which it has hereto fore been surrounded and moving ont into the broad paths of progress. This is the au thor's idea and as a type of this movement a young doctor is taken at twenty-one years of age firmly abreast with the times, one of the first in the medical profession.

Higginson is credited with telling a racy anecdote in regard to James Rnssell Lowell. According to Mr. Higgin son, one of the Adirondack guides expresses the opinion that Mr. Lowell is "an ignorant cuss," and backs up the characterization with this bill of particulars: "Well, 1 was out with him in a canoe, and we were going down stream with the current and making first-rate time, and he didn't know any better than to insist that we should go over to the other Bide of the stream just to get in the shade of the bank out of the sun; and we didn't get along at all. Now I call a man that don't know enough to take advantage ot the current in a canoe a blamed ignoramus." This same critical Adirondack guide, or one of his professional brethren, figures in another story, which is also told at the ex pense of Air. Lowell's intelligence. Said the guide in question to a gentleman whom he met in the woods and who mentioned that he came from Boston. "Do you know Lowell?" "What's his first name?" . "Jim." "Do you refer to James Russell Lowell, the poet?" "Yes, that's him." "O, yes I know Mr. Lowell very well and admire him greatly." ' Well, I took to him too (with regret in bis tone), but he's got one sing'lar habit." . "To what do you refer?" "Well, he's written me several letters off and on when coming here: he's a monoto nous speller." "A what?" "A monotonous speller. I've always no ticed that in his letters to me Lowell spells his words the same way every time I nev er do." Sturdy Little Pull. (.Joe Howard's New York Letter. General Sheridan was here also last week. He is a very quiet, unassuming little man, rather thick set, but well knit. In appear ance he has the steady eye and military bear ing of the saldier, and is a very genial and cheerful man in society. What is most no ticeable about the man, however, is there is an utter absence of frills, f nss and feathers, In manner he is tlit, conventional man of the world, with nothing about him to suggest the general of the army. There are hosts of lieutenants and captains in society who put on more airs in a minute than "Little Phil Sheridan" ever did in all his life. To see the great cavalryman out at an evening recep tion in evening dress, chatting with a bevy of beauties, or refreshing the inner man with a modest ration of oysters, one would sup pose him to be probably a colonel on leave fresh from the frontier. Since his promotion to his present rank his whole conduct has been marked by a quiet unobtrusiveness and freedom from ostentation that was not shown by some of his predecessors. He bears the honors of his exalted rank with the modesty of a great leader of men, and attends striot- ly to the duties or nis position. Mrs. &nen- dan, who is a daughter of General Rucker of the army, is quite as much a favorite in so ciety as the general. She is an excellent type of the wife of an army officer. A Wise Boar. From the Middlesex County Record. A dog owned by Colonel Newton, of Cromwell, goes twice a day to the railroad station for the morning and evening paper. He goes of his own accord, is always on time and waits about where the baggage car is to stop, in the morning at one place and in the afternoon at another. There he waits nntil the bundle is thrown off and opened by the station master, when he takes his pa per in his mouth and immediately starts for home. If the weather is rainy he has a piece of oil-skin which is kept in a place where he can get it himself, and of his own accord he carries this with him, and the sta tion master wraps it around the paper be fore giving it to him in order that it may not get wet. On his return home he puts the oil skin away in its place against the next ra ny day. Me knows tne papers ana insists on nav ing the right one. Once, says the Record, he was fooled. In opening tne bundle tne station master slipped one that was two days old ont of his pocket and handed it to the dog. Demo took it in ms montn aud started for home. Arriving there he took it to his master and was rewarded by a pat on the head and a kind word. Col onel Newton adjusted his spectacles and began to read. Of course he at once dis covered the trick, although he thought at the time it was only an error. Calling Demo to htm, he told him to take the pa per back aud reprimanded him for making the mistake. I don't know what it was he said to him, but the dog seemed to under stand it, for he hung his head and really looked ashamed. Iu a short time he was at the station with the old paper in his mouth, and going to the agent laid the pa per at his feet and, looking iu his face, gave a short and very decided bark, as much as to say, "Give me the right paper and do it now." He was offered one that was a day old, but after sniffing at it for a moment refused to take it, and not un til he was given a paper of that date would he have anything to do with it. Since then, although an attempt has been made several times to fool him again in the same way, he cannot be deceived, and so, as I said before, it seem3 as though the do must be able to read. The rlicld Bermndlan. Bermuda Ixtter to the Hattford Times. Chatting with Mr. Allen the other even ing, I made the remark that .nothing would give me greater pleasure than to take a na tive Bermudian, who had never left his home, and set him suddenly in the middle of the Bowery. With the elevated trains rush ing over his head, the half dozen surfs ce roads noisily tinkliug through the street, the endless crowds of people on both bides of the way, the sparkling aud glittering shops on either side, the electric lamps making au artificial moonlight, the jam, "go," stir and bustle of that wonderful thoroughfare would certainly drive him insaue on the spot. "No, it would not," said the conso, with Yankee directness; "he wouldn't be moved a hair yon couldn't surprise him or make him astonished with the great 'Panjandrum' him self. All Bermndiaus are nonchalant in the extreme. They lake nothing with surprise! You would suppose they had traveled from birth!" He said he took a farmer thirty-five years old to the States with him one time. He an ticipated great amusement at the wonder and astonishment the man would express after seeing New York, the railroads aud in fact the million new things to astound him. But the mau was absolutely stolid. He expressed no surprise, wonder or admiration a- any thing whatever, and seemed as calm and un concerned as if at home, until going out on an expression truiu he swept by a huge po tato patch, when, thrusting his body half out of the window, aud watching it as far as he could see, he sank back overcome in his seat and remarked, "That beats home!" A funny conversation he overheard be tween two farmers here: "Bad year for crops this year! I don't know what we a:e coming to." "Bad year? Why, I never had better on ions siuce I wr s born." "Nor I! Bnt what good will that do? We can't sell anything." "What? not in New York?" "Nol" "Why, yes we can! What's to prevent it?" "I tell yon we can't!" "Why not?" The old man turned solemnly about and shook his finger at his neighbor: "We can't ell anything in New York because all the Americans are down here!" Another farmer said wisely one day with a knowing countenance, "They're havin' a lively time up in New York to-day !" "How s that'" "Why, the steamer must have got unloaded to-day. All the shopmen v ill be down to the dock. But she was full, clear up I am afraid she will glut the market!" These anecdotes are posi'ively true and in dicate the estimation in which some Bermn dians hold their little island. They know absolutely nothing of big countrits. They cannot possibly grasp the idea of any place being larger than this dot. . Illtlitarir BedTapc From the San Francisco Chron'cle.

A well known miner was digging a well to secure water for a stock ranch which he had located. When he had dug down about ten feet the earth and rocks caved in on him. His head was visible and his cries for help finally attracted the attention of the men driving a pack train along the road. They set to work to rescue him, but finding that the earth was caving in as fast as they remov ed it they sent out one of their number to appeal to the commandant at Fort McDowell, only a few miles away, to give them a f?w men. The oificer was toid of the urgency of the case, but he replied that as the accident happened outside the limits of the reserva tion he had no authority to detail any of his men.

We hear occasionally people speak of cameelia, but the real name was camelli, with camellus, camel or kamel as aliases. He was born, according to a statement by Father Paque, at Berlin, in Moravia, in 1651. He became a member of the order of Jesuits and passed a large pai t of his life as a mis sionary iu the Phillipine Islands where he difrt on May 2, 1706.
