Gallatin, Mo. Aug. 30.— The line of the
defense in the Frank James trial was
agreed upon at a consultation of attorneys
last night, and briefly stated is au alibi and
mistaken identity. At the convening of
the court this morning ilr. Rush made the
opening argument for the defense. He
dwelt at length upon Frank James' efforts
to get away from the band, denied that
Frank had ever left Kentucky, claimed a
conspiracy between Dick Liddell and ths
Fords and Boltons-
S. T. Brosions, of Gallatin, who was on
the train at Winston, was the first witness
examined for the defense. Witness told
of the entry of two men into the smoking
car with drawn revolvers. The larger of
the two devoted himself to the conductor,
the smaller to the pa??ei!gers. There was
a cry of hands up. The larger man shot
the conductor. Witness held his hands up
and looked steadily into the eyes of the
smaller man, who was shooting through
the car. Witness did not recognize pris
oner as one of the two men. He said: "He
is not the man."
John Dean, a farmer, testified to having
been at the blacksmith shop of Jas. Potts
Nov. 20, 1881, when two men came up in a
wagon to have samething done to a vehicle.
When they went away Potts, who seemed
very much excited, said: "Those are two
meu for whom I shod horses before the
Winston robbery." Witness had a good
look at the men and defeadant was posi
tively not one of them. Jonas Potts visit
ed Independence when Frank James was
in jail. On his return witness asked: ''Did
you see Frank James?" "Yes," was the
arswer. "For the first time.
Marion Duncan, a farmer, testified that
Potts had said to him that he recognized
the picture of Jesse James after he was
killed as that of a man whose horse he had
shod. G. A. Chapman also testified with a
view to impeach Dick Liddell's testimony.
The defense offered in evidence the record
of Liddell's horse stealing in Yernon
county. Recess.
The presence of Dave Poole, the old
guerilla, now a wealthy stockman of Texas,
Allen Palmer, of Texas, Frank James'
brother-in-law, and several other ranch
men gave rise to the belief that an attempt

TheHi'e Underwriters.
Chicago, Aug. 30. — The second day's,
session of the fire underwriters began this
morning. The constitution was amended
so as to have its annnn.l meetiugs occur in
September on a date to b<= fixed by the ex
committee instead of the third week in
August. The committee to which the
subject of state boards was referred en
dorsed the idea of a paid commission, and
teeDmmended that the old system of
commissions bo abandoned. The reports
of state boards showed a marked increase
:n the number of local boards during the
ja^tyear. Prof. A. E. Doiber, of Tuft's
college. Boston, read a paper on electri

Novel Methods Adopted by People to Get a
[From an Unknown Exchange.]
People who suffer from thirst are of
ten in great agony. There appears to
be no limit to their efforts to quench
thirst while thus suffering. Others
have an appetite for drink, and to sat
isfy the appetite resort to all manner of
means. Soldiers on the march, under
a broiling sun and over a dusty road,
suffer more, probably, than any other
class. In our own city, on gala days
during the heated term, how refreshing
is a glass of lemonade to the sweltering
soldier or ordinary pedestrian ? On the
march, in active service, we have seen
the soldier stop by the roadside and
moisten his parched lips and throat
from a slimy pool of water which was
almost unfit for beasts. We have seen
gallant lives sacrificed during the late
war in efforts to quench the thirst of
pickets. The springs were in range of
the rifles of the rebel sharpshooters,
and the soldier who escaped with his
well-filled canteen was most fortunate.
Not long since a novel cane was in
use among attendants at places of pub

On one occasion we remember of a
party who was hemmed in in the gal
lery of the theater, and could not get out
for a drink. He saw a friend in the or
chestra whom he begged to relieve his
thirst. The friend was willing, but was
at a loss to know how to get it up.
The man in the gallery was not at a loss
for means under such trying circum

had a string in their pocket. A youth,
who had been out fishing during the
day, produced his line. The man in
the orchestra was notified, and soon
thereafter a bottle was seen whirling
around as it gracefully passed upward
in front of those in the family circle.
The man in the gallery had a racket all
to himself during the balance of the
But there are other methods even
more ingenious than this to gratify the
aypetite and guard against thirst. The
most novel device we have yet seen is
the opera-glass whisky flask. In its
use no one would believe it else than an
opera-glass, yet it holds a good half,
pint of whisky. For use in a crowded
audience it is a very handy thing to
have, as the holders are not obliged to
go outside for a drink between the acts.
It can be used as an opera-glass with or
without taking a drink. If you want
to take a drink there is a spring that
you touch with the finger, when a sil
ver tube drops into the mouth and
the whisky flows easily. It works
best when the glass is pointed up at
the gallery.
With regard to the sense of hearing,
it h first remarked that all children, for
some time after birth, are completely
deaf, and it was not until the middle of
the fourth day that Prof. Preyer ob
tained any evidence of hearing in his
child. This child first turned his head
in the direction of a sound in the
eleventh week, and his movement in
the sixteenth week had become as rapid
and certain as a reflex. At eight months
or a year before its first attempts at
speaking, the infant distinguished
between a tone and a noise, as shown
by its pleasure on hearing the sounds
of a piano. After the first year the
child found satisfaction in itself strik
ing the piano. In the twenty-first
month it danced to music, and in the
twenty-fourth month it imitated songs ;
but it is stated, on the authority of
other observers, that some children
have been able to sing pitch correctly,
and even a melody, as early as nine
months. One such a child used to sing
in its sleep, and at nineteen months
could beat time correctly with its hand
while singing an eir. — London Xalure.
In the manufacture of jewelry the
tiniest bits of the precious metals are
gathered with the greatest care. After
particles of gold have become im
perceptible to the naked eye, means are
adopted by which they are accnmula ed,
reraelted and worked over again. In
some of the large factories, where god
is handled in large quantities, special
floors are made. The flooring is double
and made of the best material, and has
laid between the upper and lower Ba -
tions asphalt paper covered with tar.
Minute particles of gold find their way
between the seams of the upper s
and immediately adhere to the sticiy
tar. It is calculated that when the
floor of a jeweler's shop is removed the
gold accumulated in the crevices and
such places will more than pay the ex
pense of a new one. Every possible
particle of filing, scraping, grinding,
polishing dust or engraving chips is
preserved for the assayer with as much
scrupulous care as the shipping of the
goods from which they had been de
tached. The wheels upon which gold
and silver have been polished, when
worn out, are burned and the fire re
veals particles of the precious ' metals
which were hidden to all but the chem
ist. Sweepings are quite valuable, and
would be a material loss to the manu
facturer if not saved, even after the
workman has picked up every bit of
metal that has fallen on the floor. This
dirt from the floor will sell for $70 a
barrel. A Jersey City firm deals in this
peculiar dirt almost exclusively. The
caps of the workmen are often bnma/1
as are the aprons, after they have been
washed regularly every week. It has
happened that $23 worth of gold was
obtained by the burning of an apron.
Even the water in which the workmen
wash, in the majority of places, is saved
and run into tanks, where it is allowed !
to stand for a time, a sediment forming
at the bottom. The water is run off and
the muddy mixture handed over to the
assayer. The men often find little
chips of gold and silver in their hair or
beard, but these do not amount to any
thing if not accumulated. It is told of
a Swiss watch-case maker how he had a
way of incessantly stroking his beard
while polishing the cases, and parties
interested discovered that when he got
home at night he as carefully and inces
santly brushed out his beard, but saved
the brushings. — Brooklyn Eagle.
Four bold, bad Sophomore 3in a cer
tain Eastern college went into the room
of a Freshman whom they judged to be
verdant. After the Sophomores had
got into the room the Freshman asked
what they wished.
"Oh, we've come to put you through,"
was the reply.
The Freshman told them they had
better not attempt anything, but they
scornfully refused to liiten to advice
from a member of a lower class, and
made a rush for the youth whom they
took to be green. Wiih a blow he laid
one of the bold Sophs upon his back.
In the melee that followed the light
was overturned and extinguished, when
the Freshman grasped a chair and the
Sophomores were compelled to beat a
hasty and disastrous retreat.
The next morning the Freshman was
called before the President of the col
lege, who inquired the cause of the dis
turbance in his room the previous even
ing. The Freshman narrated the cir
cumstances of the case very minutely,
and the President listened with the
greatest attention. When the Fresh
man had finished, the President made
inquiry :
"And you cleaned them out:"
"Yes," was the answer.
"I congratulate you on your success,"
said the President, as he took the boy's
hand and gave it a hearty shake.

That is one Swiss woman 's-rights in
cident. Here is another : At Vernayaz,
one afternoon, two of the lady tourists
ascended a mountain path. It was' a
long climb, so steep and trying that
less than half a dozen of the party cared
to try it. Up and up the ladies went,
taking their time. Now they paused
awhile to take breath, and sometimes
they used both feet and their hands,
and made canes of their umbrellas, to
give themselves a lift. They thought
they had accomplished a feat worth
while when, at last, they paused at the
top, and looked about them upon one of
the most glorious views they had seen
on the whole trip. At length, after
resting awhile, they started down, feel
ing slightly set up over what they had
done. But they felt very small a few
minutes later. They came suddenly to
one of the steepest turns in the path.
There they came face to face with a
chuffy little Swiss woman who was go
ing up the mountain way. On her arm
&he carried a good-sized basketful of
something. Upon her head was an
enormous bundle. It was balanced so
as to keep its place. In her two hands
she held a long stocking, and was knit
ting away for dear life. The woman
was actually carrying a load heavy
enough for a horse upon her head, the
basket mentioned upon | her arm, and
was knitting, while she made an ascent

and secure it comfort, and thus leave
the mind free to devote itself to study.
The New York Tribune utters sundry
wise words as to what should and

"For a girl, two suits for every day
and one for holidays is desirable.
We have known students of both sexes
who had but one suit for all occasions
and always seemed well-dressed.
"It is well for boys and young men to
have a study-gown to wear in their
rooms and when taking recreation, and
girls should have large aprons to wear
when they are putting their rooms in

"It is economy, if two suits are pro
vided, to wear that of the best quality

"If well-to-do parents will remember
the poorer students with whom their
children will be associated and avoid
ostentatious clothing, they will confer
equal benefit on both.
"The consciousness of being excep
tional in appearance is no advantage to
the student, and is often a disadvant
age. Both extremes — too well-dressed,
too ill-dressed — should be avoided.
"Waterproofs, shawls, •wraps, rub
bers, umbrellas, should not be omitted
in the outfit. When hard study brings
the bloo<l to the brain, the body is in
poor condition to resist changes of tem
perature and moisture.
"With due attention to diet, dress,
exercise and sleep, there is no reason
why the healthful student should not
retain his health during the usual course
of study marked out for college gradu
ates and enter upon mature life actually
stronger, physically as "well as mentally,
for the course he has gone through."
John Buriyan was opposed to the kiss

"it is odious to me in whomsoever I see

Minnesota millers no longer grind
wheat into flour, but "crack it," and
burr millstones are things of the past,
Hungarian steel rollers having taken
their place. It takes five sets of steel
rollers to finish the flour, and each set
runs closer together than the preced

the sun was once a million times larger
in bulk than it now is, and that it has
gradually contracted as it has gradually
cooled. At some far-off time it will
cease to throw off heat enough to warm
