Among the crowd were several poltco men, who, lnsteud of trying to quiet the outbreak, weie as loud as the rest In shouting for Uarlj's blood, and the situation was critical to a line point. "Early had not yet left the court-room, and nothing on earth apparently stood between htm and a horrible doAth, when a man npix-arod on the scene whose nerve was suitlclent to paralyze the clamorous mob and save the lawyer's life. The court-room was but a short distance from the county Jail, and the outbreak had lieen witnessed almust from Its starting by the Sheriff. This olllt'lal was a big (lermaii named Peter Htcker, who, before ho was elected hherlff, ran a saddltry shop on Chestnut sit eel. Itecker, as soon as he saw the mob forming, run oer to see what the trouble wax, and darted upstairs Into the court-room, where he found Early and the deud man, and waa briefly In formed what had trnnsplred and the danger to which Eaily was exposed.

You can't kill him without killing me. and If any man las a hand on him while he is In my custody I'll drop htm In his tracks I Now clear the wayl' "He pushed Early before him, and passed Into the crowd, the Sheriff walk ing step by step behind the prisoner, and the two moving like one man Tlie foremost of the mob found the Sheriff's gun-barrels frowning them right In the ees, and made room, as did the mm next behind.

Frequent allusions are made to It In ancient history, and at the present day It Is prevalent In all parts ot the world. It Is met with among the negro races of Africa and Is common among the Mongolian Inhabitants of China, where It has been given the suggestive namo of "kchl-ko." For some unex plained reason It Is twice as frequent among mates as females. Although stuttering Is often met with In Indi viduals whose mental capacity Is far above the averuge, yet there Is reason to believe that the proportion of suffer ers Is higher among epileptics and nmong thoie of defective mental devel opment than among ordinary people, nnd that the prognosis In these subjects Is less hopeful. The affection Is rarely congenital. It usually comes on either In early childhood or not Infrequently begins with some epoch In a child's life. such as the first going to school, period of second detention, and so forth.

Dlckerson Station, Mil., yesterday, which would seem to have been lost while McClel land's army was encamped at that place In 1802. Some laborers engaged in digging postholes unearthed a bright object about eighteen Inches below tho surface, und on examination It was seen to be u medal about the slxe of a ten-dollur gold piece. On one side Is a vignette of Gen. McClelland, encircled by tho letters of his name. On the re verre side, standing out plain and dis tinct, appoars the name of "Franklin O. Pullslpher, Co. I, Twelfth Vermont Volunteers." Cannon halls and other relies of a hnttlelleld are frequently found on the Brown farm and as there was fighting at Dickinson Station during the war. It Is not Impossible that the medal waa lost In battle by the man who had won It by some brave exploit In another en gagement, and that he himself fell on the spot where the mark of honor has lain for more than thirty years, but the finders are inclined to think that It was lost while the army was In camp, local " THE EVENINQ WORLD'S" BALLOON AND THE RADIUS OF POSSIBLE COURSES.

SB Police Magistrate Vaughn has given art Wi. exposition of the law of organ grlndtna; BT which will cause dismay to many peace) , B loving households. Instead of beta M proud of their nationality, three Bn, SJ Ush youths disguised themselves Uksj Bj Italians and mode their appearance In v Norfolk street Strand, with a plana SJJ organ, to the dismay of a private hotel; B keeper there, who waa for once enjoylnaji AT a quiet bank holiday In h's own parlorj 11 all his guests having gone to Hampsteaa f or aome other auburban retreat. . f The way they turned the machine was) 1 something abnormal.

Ultimately the aOtaH BWB keeper gave them In charge of a const- BJBJ ble. who brought them before the magaj BJBJ Istrate at Bow street. faW In reply to the learned gentleman on aWJ the bench, the complainant sam ha Was) BBS doing no bualness on bank holiday; there BJBJ was no sickness In the house, and tlia BJBJ organ playing did not affect his health,' BJBJ "Unless you are disturbed In your busM ness," said Mr. Vaughan, "or there Is) Bpfl sickness in the house or your health lat,faBjBJ affected by the sounds of the organ, youj "BJBJ cannot Interfere." "Then, can they) play an organ In my street all datt BBJ long?" asked the complainant. "Ye WW unless tlie health of yourself oriyoui f family Is Injured, or your business II I I affected."
