Hurst, chancellor of the projected American university-, and Vice Chancel lor Samu'l IL Beiler will return here j shortly after extensive tripa through the west in the furtherance of the establish ment of the university. The work of se curing f u ids and preparing for building has progressed systematically at the headquarters here through the summer. Large subscriptions have been for establishing- professorships, but the uni versity otiicers are anxious to get the buildings before establishing professor ships aud scholarships. This desire has led to the oiler by a wealthy gentleman, who doe not wish his name used at present, tJ build the tirst structure, to be used as an administration building. It is estimated that it will cost from f 200,000 to 250.000. It will be of stone or marble, three stories high, about 250 feet long by 100 feet deep. The time for breaking ground for this building has not yet been set, but it is not likely to be begun before spring. It will bo first used for a special pur pose, probably a school of history, and while thus used, a second building will bo added. Thus the whole group of 1 buildings will be gradually developed. The observatory is to be located on the highest point in the District of Colum bia, aud i4 to have a height equal to the government observatory near by. Be sides the offer to build the tirst building, there have been twodonations of $100,000 each, one by an Ohio gentleman and the other by a. New York lady, whose names are withheld. The preachers' fund has also grown to $03,000 within recent days. It was started in New York, being restricted to preachers and has been taken up all ever the country until the fund is ex pected to reach $100,000. It will be used to b liM Asbury hall, named after the tirs-t American bishop. The hall will ferve as a religious museum. Mrs. John A. Logan, one of the trustees, has also undertdk sn to raise a special fund, and has set tte figure at .$1,000,000. SPENDS $150,000 A DAY. Japan II to Pay That Morh for the Pleasure of Warring;.

John Darby, who has for many years Been considered hi ij .! .!;. in sane, is onoo more in Lis right iidnd, and tho return of reason enabled Mm to give the solution of his wifeV hi th which has long remained h my.-tery, eays tho Reno, Nevada, correspond nt of tho Cincinnati Enqu:rr. She v jiri supposed to haveboer. murdered, as her body was found, mutilate."! and partly covered with earth, while her husband was caught roaming through the for est witli an ax on his shoulder, a rav ing maniac. Tho woman was killed and the man crazed in a fight with a bear. In detail it is perhaps the most pathetic story of lifts ever known, and would furnish a theme for a novelist's pen. John Darby camo to California when a boy, thirty years ago, travel ing with his father and mother, tho former an invalid seeking a climate where he might b restored to health. He died suddenly in the little town o Grass Valley. Hid widow could not survive the shock, and in a few days she rested by the side of her husband, leaving the son, then but 14 years of ago, alone in the world without friends or money, all of their meaua having been exhausted in tho expenses of tho sickness and death of the parents. The boy worked at anything he could do, drifting eventually into Nevada. Here he met a girl as poor as himself, and they were married, going to housekeeping- in a small cabin with a few acres of cleared land around it. They prospered on the little place, and it used to be a common expression among the settlers of that community; "As happy as John and Mary Darby." One day a young pig disappeared, then another, and another, and bear tracks were seen. The husband and wife started together to hunt tho "varmint," ho carrying the ax and sho the rille, with which sho was an ex pert. John in some way became sep arated from his wife, and wxts some distance ahead of her when he was suddenly confronted by a x-nr. It was too close quarters for a fight witli nothing but an ax as a weapon, and he climbed a tree, calling to his wife to le careful, that the bear was there. In some way she misunderstood him and thought that he wanted her. Not suspecting that tho lxar was there, she was within a few feet of the ani mal before she saw him. Hastily raising the rifle the woman fired, but only succeeded in maddening 1liO brute, and a moment later lie wu crushing her in his ponderous paws. Tho husband, when lio saw his wife's fate, j tun pod from the tree to get his ax, but the animal had carried his vic tim into a thicket, and the man, crazed with grief, could not find him. It was noticed that the Darby house was open, and yet no one ap peared to be there, and in a few days a search was made, resulting in find ing tho mutilated body of tho woman, in the thicket and tho marks of tho death struggle. The next day the husband was seen roaming through tho woods with an ax upon his shoulder, alternately moaning and shrieking. Ho was captured by st rat egy, several men appearing in front, of him to attract his attention, while others lassoed him from behind. For five years he was a raving maniac, but two years ago he legan to show signs of returning reason, and is now cured, but he is a broken-down old man ai the age of 45 years, and will never again be fit for work. His recollection is vivid up to tho moment that the bear seized his wife, while beyond that he remembers nothing. In lln Had Lands. Princeton expedition into the Bad Lands in search of fossils lias been wonderfully successful. One of the most important specimens found was the titanotherium, or extinct rhin- .oceros, which was twice as largo as the modern rhinoceros. They also found several specimens of the rhin oceros family and the metamydor, a, j relative of the rhinoceros. Then there i are skeletons of numerous Finall ani mals. TTiey found a few fih skele j tons, the only fish skeletons ever I found in those beds. Last year's ex- pedition from Princeton succeeded in ; obtaining ' the only crocodile ever ! found in the Bad Lands. On this trip ; a good 8iecimen of the ainphisbaenold lizard was unearthed, the only speci men of tlas reptile ever found in the world. This has no limbs at all, ari l was a vey low order of the lizard. Domesticating the Denny Ihosant A young woman of Oregon has ac complished what the most experiene'-d fanciers have been unable to do; that is, the domestic propagating- of ti. Denny pheasant. She has tamed the wild young chicks so that they ar j , willing to feed among domestic fowls and do not try to escape to the woods and fields. She has four pheasant hens in captivity and puts their eggs under a domestic fowl. It is tr, opinion of experts that the chicks hatched from eggs laid in the pheas ant's native nest in the fields an 1 hatched by a domestic fowl will never be tamed.
