-V-/.» Larson.
Ncls Larson, who w killed by the cr.r?
last Friday evening on the Minneapolis
! & St. Louis road, had come to the city
the day before from Mankato, in company
with a fellow-countryman named Martin
j Johnson, whom the Globe representative
interviewed at length in reference to tho
anetcedents of the deceased
and the manner of his death. In regard to
his death Mr. Johnson knew nothing but
what the public already know. On Fri
! day morning about fifteen men started
out of Minneapolis to work on the rail
road, among them being Mr. Johnson
' and the deceased. On reaching
| the place they ascertained
they would have to travel about a mile to
i the boarding shanty for meals and be
obliged to sleep at night in box cars with
only one blanket for a covering. They
could get employment, but under these
circumstances they would not work and -o
returned to the city. On reaching Cedar
lake on their way back some went in to
bathe, but some aesthetic employe of the
road protested aeainst doing so, and so
Nels Larson parted with his companions
and started back alone with a heavy valise
in his hand. His companion. Johnson, re
mained behind with the others and got on
a hind freight car and stole his way back
to the city. In reply to the question
whether the deceased had been drinking
that inoruing or had been hard of hearing,
Johnson said the deceased was a steady
and industrious man, who followed rail
roading, but owned a homestead in Brown
county, Minnesota, that he was
in comfortable circumstances. un

Pcrr</ri>iationi In and About Bismarck,
[Correspoadence of the Daily Globe.]
Since Bismarck became the capital of
the great territory of Dakota, it has
boomed as probably no other city is boom
ing elsewhere at the present time. It may
be said to present many of the features of
a young mining town, where rich ore de
posits have just been struck. Every house
©f public entertainment is full to over
flowing, halls are crowded with cots, and
tents are spread on the greensward of the
prairie. The streets are thronged with an
eager multitude, and all who have means
seem intent on trying their lu^k in some
alluring investment. The temptation is
indeed great, in that, on account of a
% 300,000 capitol building being about to
be erected, no immediate collapse is ap
prehended. Commissioners are in the city,
whose business it is to determine the site
of the capitol, and when that is done, there
will be no delay in commencing the grand
structure. Of course this is a stimulus
to the most active traffic in real estate. I
was shown a lot on an inferior street,
which had just sold for $900 a front foot.
The prospects of Bismarck are unques
tionably splendid, and its rapid advance to
a city of large size and importance, are
believed to be cerraid. It lacks* nothing
in resources that build up cities on a per
manent foundation. Rail and river car
riage of almost unlimited length, center
ing here as a focal distributing point to a
surrounding country of all but boundless
expanse and fertility of soil unparalleled
and the broad prairie being rapidly
peopled by thousands of new settlersfrom
foreign lands, as from nearly all states of
the American- Union. Under sach circum
stances and surroundings, it seems quite
probable that the present moderate
population of Bismarck (only 2^oo]
will be increased to full 10,000 in a couple
of years, r.nd go on advancing as aid Chi
cago and St. Paul in earlier days. Nearly
every advantage that stimulated the growth
of the last named cities exist for Bismarck,
which seems to be without fear of any
Seated upon a boulder on the highest
attainable eminence overlooking the great
est expanse of territory, I scan the vast
panorama spread out before me and be
neath. But it is a scene of vastness with
few salient features. The beautiful iron
bridge of the Northern Pacific, costing one
million dollars, spans the river below me.
The cities of Bismarck and Mandan are in
— the former two, and the latter three
miles away; and "far as the eye discerns,"
the Missouri winds its course through level
flats, between rather low, undulating banks,
not rising here to the dignity of bluffs.
Slow winds the far descended flood,
Surcharged with solvent sand and mud:
Yet bearing on its gurgling breast
The commerce of the grand Northwest.
Not a ripple is seen or heard from where
I sit, and the roilly stream looks better
adapted for poling scows and canal boats
among its numerous bends and bayous,
than for floating scores of first class
steamers twelve hundred miles up stream
and down to the Gulf of Mexico.
Bismarck appears a great mart for lum
ber and agricultural machinery — acres of
-round being covered by these. What
thousands of future tenements and freshly
opened farms are represented by these in
dispensable requisites of each new settler.
At this point one is able to learn,
with a tolerable degree of certainty, the
progress of the Northern Pacific road to
ward completion, as trains daily arrive and
depart for Helena, the capital of Montana,
686 miles west of Bismarck and 1.155 from
St. Paul. Beyond Helena is an uncom
pleted gap of some 125 to 150 miles, in the
heart of Montana, over which a line of four
horse Concord coaches are run in thirteen
hours, at a fare of *15 and forty pounds of
baggage allowed. All over this weight is
charged ten cents per ponnd. Beyond the
stage haul comes the western stretch of
completed road of about 600 miles to
Portland and 750 to New Tacoma. the ter
minus of the road on Puget's sound. It
appears to be the settled conviction of the
j best informed, that trains will be run
j through from St. Paul to the Pacific by
| September 1, although it may take much
i longer to carry the tunnel work to abso
! lute completion.
It is unpleasant to ba obliged to record
: anything discreditable to the management
iof such a stupendous enterprise as the
j Northern Pacific road. Bat cupidity is a
; human or inhuman trait of corporations.

iot jrof the rcrvi
at this point is obvior.s to many, as chaos
and confusion reign in the freigiit depart
ment, and capability and authority both
seem needed to regulate it. Inattention
and incivility are no less marked among
the employes. The Erie company is the
only one, so far as the writer has observed,
that ever sought to enforce the rule re
quiring its employes to handle freight
with care, and to demean themselves
obligingly and courteously to tbe always
inquisitive traveler. The Northern Pacific
evidently follows no such precedent, not
withstanding that it requests reports by
travelers of all delinquencies of its agents
and olerkß. The bulk of movables and
merchandise arriving at Bismarck is sim
ply prodigious, and piled in space by far
too contracted to admit of its being over
hauled with facility, and it is trying to the
last degree to the equanimity of a mild
tempered immigrant to be brought in col
lision with a bellicocious Welshman such
as is acting here as chief of freight. The
first inquiry will be evasive or unheeded,
at the second the querist will be told to go
to , and if the immigrant is coura
geous enough to persevere in his quest for
information, he had better look out lest
the agent enforce hia second requisition.
It is the opinion of the writer that Bis
marck is a much better place for selling
beer than it is for buying. Sauntering
into a "sample room" one day last week
when the mercury was up to 90, thinking
to assauge my thirst with a glass of cool
lager, I happened to notice the payment
for drinks by two thirsty souls who
had preceded me — 15c for the tiniest
mugs! My thirst subsided without a drop;
nor was it diverted to lemonade, as I saw
25c a glass exacted for that beverage.
And beer saloons and land offices appear
more numerous than any or all other sorts
of business combined. Yet I would cay to
all who are bent on change of locality,
whether merchants, mechanics or farmers
(not common laborers), come to Bismarck
and make money. Stay in Bismarck and
grow rich. But do not expect to find any
thing to charm or gratify the sense of vis
ion in the surrounding scene. Bismarck
is a prairie city of unutterable tameness
and sameness of landscape scenery.

A State irith a fall Treasury.
Galveston (Texas) News.
Recent dispatches from the state capital
indicate that the cash balance in the state
treasury exceeds $3,000,000. Something
over §2,000,000 of this fund belongs to
special funds and ought to be invested.
As has lately b.een shown in these col
umns, the treasurer cajn not now make any
desirable investment. There then re
mains $ 2,000,000 idle until another ses
sion of the legislature is had. In
case the constitutional amendments are
adopted — and this result is not doubted —
the legislature is required to designate the
kind and class of investments desired.
Until thi& is doje the funds in question re
main idle at 5 per cent, the loss is estima
ted at $100,000 per annum, or about $150.
--000 from the time the amend
ments are voted upon until the
session of the next legislature. An extra
session would cost $35,000 or less. It is,
then, evident that this investment question
alone would justify the expense of an ex
tra session.
Coral Fishing.
The largest vessels employed in the
coral fishery on the Italian coast are of
about fourteen tons, and employ a
dozen hands. They have to work night
and day, the men relieving each other

to October, and their food consists
chiefly of macaroni and biscuit. Each

cious coral varies in color from a deep
red to a pale pink. It is also sometimes
marbled black and white; and there is
even black and white coral. Red coral
was once the most esteemed : now a del
icate pink is the most valued. The
finest pink coral is worth from $400 to
si) 00 per ounce, while ordinary red
coral may be had for $10 per ounce. -

Wagner, the Composer.
"Wagner was not a rapid or regular
■worker, though he used, to say that he
was always composing. Most of his
poems had been written when he was
young, which accounts for the rough
hewing of the verses, and he was wont
to recite passages of them to himself as
he went out for his afternoon's walk,
accompanied by his two Newfoundland
dogs. Walking, he would seize tunes
floating through the air, "now like
mists, now like swarms of bees buzzing
on the wing, now like legions of sing
ing gnats" (this is what he writes in his
unpublished autobiography), and try to
make them settle on his verses "as on a
mirror." When he was at Bayreuth he
had a favorite walk, leading to the her
mitage — the boudoir or sulking house
of the Electors of Bavaria in olden
times, when their Serene Highness,
tired of beei and politics, would take to
metaphysics and French wines for a
change. Over the two miles of road
lying between Bavreuth and this retreat
Wagner could roam undisturbed, for
the little Franconian peasant boys and
girls who saw him from afar would
nimbly skip out of his way, having
heard from their parents that the affairs
of Germany would somehow get out of
joint if they disturbed the great man in
his meditations.

The Blarney-Stone.
The expression, "He has kissed the
blarney-stone," is applied frequently to
a flatterer with a smooth tongue and
ready speech. This famous stone is in
the parapet of the large square tower of
Castle Blarney, in Munster, Ireland.
When visitors ask for the identical
stone, the guide points to a stone sev
eral feet below the one usually saluted.
The latter may be kissed without effort,
bat if a man wishes to kiss the real
"blarney," he must get some strong
person to hold him by the heels over
the walls.

Abraham Lincoln's Candidacy for the
Under the Cooper Institute is a large
hall, where Abraham Lincoln made the
great speech which called the attention
of the East to him as a Presidential
quantity the year before he became
President. After Lincoln had been
beaten by Douglas for Senator he was
brought out for President at the town
of Decatur, where the Illinois Kepub
lican Convention was held in May, 1859.
Gov. Oglesby then announced that an
old Democrat desired to make a con
tribution to the convention. Two fence
rails were then brought in, decorated,
and inscribed : " Abraham Lin
coln, the rail candidate for the \
Presidency in 1860." The two rails '
were from a lot of 3.000 made '
in 1830 by Thomas Hanks and Abe '
Lincoln. For about fifteen minutes :
there was tremendous cheering and ex- '
citement. Lincoln took the platform,
and gave his reminiscences of making
rails. He then visited Kansas. Ohio.

to speak at Beeeher's church in Brook
lyn. He spent a whole day at the Astor
House on Saturday, reviewing this
elaborate address ; and, having gone to
hear Beecher on Sunday, he spoke at
the Cooper Institute on Monday night.
The platform was crowded with the
Republican leaders of the city. Peter
Cooper among them. Wm. C* Bryant
presided, and the solid and elaborate
character of the address satisfied the
Republicans here that if Seward did
not get the nomination, and Lincoln
did, there would not be such a great
difference in the men. — George Alfred
The Corinth Canal.
The contractors who are cutting the
canal through the Isthmus of Corinth
are confident that the work will be com
pleted within four years. The canal
will be just four miles long and of the
same dimensions as that of Suez— namely
seventy-two feet wide and twenty-six
deep throughout at low water. Vessels
from the Adriatic ports will save ISS
miles and those from the Mediterran
ean ninety-five miles by passing
through the canal, beside avoiding the
dangerous coast around Cape Matapan.

Uefrkshing for the Sick Room.—
There is a French story that during the
• at Marseilles a band of robbers
hindered the dying and the deadwith
ijury to themselves. They were
imprisoned, tried and condemned to
■ tie, but were pardoned on condition of
disclosing the secret whereby they
could, with impunity, ransack house's
nfeeted with the terrible scourge.
[ hey gave the following recipe, which
makes a delicious and refreshing wash
for the sick room : Take of rosemary.
«•< rmwood, lavender, rue, sage and
fc, a large handful of each. Place
in a stone jar. and turn over it one
rallon of strong cider vinegar, cover
•ly and keep near the fire for four
days; then strain and add one ounce of
I owdered camphor gum. Bottle and
keep tightly corked. It is very aro
matic, cooling and refreshing in the
-;ck room, and is of great value to
Air Baths.— A writer in the Boston
rnalof Chemistry contributes an
interesting article on air baths. He
holds that a large proportion of inva
lids do not bear well the application of
either cold or tepid water to the body.
( h;lv the strong and robust in cold
climates can endure the icy streams of
the shower-bath. The "sponge-bath
yen saps the vitality of many to a fatal
extent, and feeble persons are rarely
in any degree beneritted by its use. The
tepid bath, as a curative means, con
y followed, weakens rather than
Athens, and. in short, lie claims
that bathing, beyond the needs of per
i ct cleanliness, is not to I>e recom
mended to any one. The. "douching"
and "wetsheet"' hygienic institutions.
he says, have had their day. The
"steaming and sweating" Turkish bath
has been popular, but its evils have
been so frequently demonstrated that
it is vapidly falling in+o disuse. This
ia the way. the writer states, the high

A stranger dropped in one morning
before breakfast at a "Washington drug
store and called for a bottle of Congress
■water. The intelligent clerk ducked
beneath the counter and promptly pro
duced a bottle of old Monongahela.
The customer tasted it and then, depos
iting his glass, remarked: "Do you
call that Congress crater "That's "it,"
answered the pill compounder, smiling

The Delusive Lithograph.
There should be something done to
j protect the people against the deadly
lithograph. The lithographs of act
resses which are hung lip in show win
dows make them all handsome, and the
facts of the matter are that only about
one in twenty is even good looking.
This is deception, and if it does not
cease there will be a row. You look at
the picture of one of the actresses or
opera singers, and you will see every
j feature so well rounded that you are
mashed, almost. The eyes are all
beautiful, the noses are perfect, the
mouths are banks of rose-buds, the
teeth are even and white, the necks
ravishing and so forth. If you stumble
onto one of them in a car' or a hotel,
you find her a plain, every-day sort of
a person, with none of the beautiful feat
ures so elaborately displayed in the
lithographs. They may have defects
in all of the features. The eyes may
be cross-legged, the nose too long, or
snubbed, the mouth three-cornered, the
teeth false or tilled with tin-foil, the lip
covered with a mustache as big as a
man's, and the neck scrawny or fat
enough to cover with a pillow shdm.
Then you are mad. and the lithograph
is to blame. A good actress or o
singer does not need to be beautiful,
unless it is habitual with her. as i
ences would think just as much of her
if she played or sang welL, though
might be plain. A little beauty
not do any hurt. Understand us

A colored man was hanging around

"Yes, sah, I knows all 'bout dat,

In it? first year, according to Geyelin,
the domestic hen produces only fifteen or
twenty eggs; in its second, 100 or more.up
to 120; in its third year, form 120 to 135,
and here the climax of fertility is reached;
in its fourth year, it produces from 100 to
115; in its fifth, from sixty to eighty: in its
sixth, from fifty to sixty ; in its seventh
from thirty-five to forty; in its eighth,
from fifteen to twenty: in its ninth, from
one to ten. The fertility rises quickly to
its summurn in the third year of life, and
more slowly fade-* to its disappearance in
j the tenth year of life. •

of albumen will appear or the color be of a. thin,
