Racine, 13. Miss Emma Kamph
of Kenosha, in company with Prank
Shirley came to Racine in a buggy
and as they turned the corner of
13th and Villa streets the young
lady discovered that her clothing
was on fire. She jumped. from the
buggy, and the breeze fanned the
flames so that she was completely
enveloped. Sandal Herzog and a
young lady who were near by, tore
her clothes from her body to extin g
uish the fire. She was terribly
burned from her feet to the top of
her head, hardly a stitch of clothing
being left on her body. Shirley was
smoking a cigar, and it is supposed
that the fire caught from that. Miss

The Inter Ocean having had pro
pounded to it an inquiry as to when
the first daily paper was established
in Illinois, replies: "This inquiry
having been made to Prof. Albert
D. Hager, tbe accomplished secre
tary of the Historical Society, that
geYitleman responded as follows:
"Matthew Duncan, from Kentucky,
went to Kaskaskia, and Sept. 7,1814,
established the first newspaper, the
Illinois Herald, and continued its
owner until 1816, when he sold out
to Daniel P. Cook and Robert Black
well. When started it was a three
column folio, but when Blackwell
& Cook took possession it was en
larged to a four-column sheet. Two
years later Elijah C. Berry bought
an interest in the company, when
the name of the paper was changed
to that of the 111. Intelligencer 1820
saw its removal from Kaskaskia to
Vandalia. The sccond newspaper in
the State was the Emigrant, publish
ed at Shawneetown, by Henry Eddy
S. H. Kimmell. The first newspaper
in Northern Illinois, the Miners'
Journal, was first issued July 22,
1828. The Galena Advertiser was
first issued by Newhall, Pliilleo &
Co., July 20, 1829. The Galenian,
by Addison Pliilleo, editor, first ap
peared May 2, 1832. The first news
paper in Chicago, the Chicago Demo
crat, by John Calhoun, was issued
Nov. 26, 1883, and the first daily
was the Chicago American, by Wm.
Stuart, April 9,1839."
Under date of the 13th, inst., a
special Minneapolis Tribune report
er at New York, in mention of the
Georgia wonder, said: "The
"Georgia wonder," Miss. Lula
Hurt, gave a private exhibition yes
terday on the stage of the Madison
Square Thertre for the benefit of the
members of the May Blossom Com
pany. Three orchestra rows were
filled by the members of the com
pany and their friends. When the
curtains rose the select audience saw
sitting at the back of the stage Miss
Hurst, with Charles Beckler on one
side and Billy Edwards on the other.
Maj. Frank McGlaughlin, the athlete
of California, whose residence is at
68 Fifth avenue, sat next to Edwards
on the other side of the stage. Dr.
J. M. Carnouchan, Dr. Daniel E.
Kissam of Brooklyn, and Joe Mur
phy had seats. Mrs. Langtry occu
pied a box. Charles Bethelor, who
is associated with the editor of the
Electrician, was the first candidate
for treatment at the hands of the
wonder. She tried the umbrella
trick on him. He held the stick
firmly for some time, but it finally
flopped over his head and looked as
if it had been ruined. It was not,
however. He tried the seat over
again, but she could wreck the um
brella as she had done on other oc
casions. When he got through he
said: 'There is some muscular force
employed, but the secret of the girl's
power I am not able to explain."
Maj. McGlaughlin took hold of'a
billiard cue. Ho could not hold it
still, nor could he remain still him
sels. He declared that the girl was
stronger than he 'was, An exhibi
tion was given afterward for Mrs.
Langtry it developed into a wrest
ling match-between her and Lulu
Hurst A billiard cue and a chair
were used. Miss. Hurst did all of
her tricks successfnlly, and at the
close of the struggle Mrs. Langtry
had h^r dress badly torn: When she
got oUt on the sidewalk she. exibited
her torn dress to her friends, and
said ''that is the result of wrestling
with the Georgia wonder. She is a
mystery to me. I don't think it is
mti'sciilar force, and if these things
are done by^ electricity, I did not no
tice any shocks* Mrs. Langtry was
reallyr sadly bruised io her tussel
with '-the wonder. Her lip was
slightly cut, while shoulders were
braised and her hands and fier arms
had black and blue marks on tbem.

Laura Johnson, a Milwaukee girl,
became so indignant on reading a
letter from her betrothed in which
he expressed the desire to break off
their engagement, that she tried to
snatch the engagement ring from

that she could not remove it. Seeing
a hatchet near by, she than deliber

it, witli the ring attached, to the

A number of piculiar insects,
known as seventeen-year locusts,
have made their appearence in im
mence numbers in the woods a few
miles south of Manasquin, on the
Jersey coast. The trees are literally
covered with them, and the noise
made by their jaws as they eat the
twigs is so great as to prevent one
from hearing a person speak at a
few yards' distant. The woods have
been visited by thousands to see the
strange insects. The injury to the
trees will be considerable, as the
locusts eat the fresh shoots of this

young man in Oakland who has a
young sister by the name of Jessie,
who was sent to a fashionable school
for your ladies. He said when she
left home he wondered if she would
acquire the airs and affectations tiiat
certain youg ladies that he knew
had by attending the fashionable
seminary. After being there a year
he began to flatter himself that his
sister was proof against such non
sense, when he received a letter
signed "Jessica," instead of Jessie,
as heretofore. In answering he
wrote something like this: "Dear
Sister Jessica: Your welcome letter
received. Mammaica and papaica
are well. Aunt Merica and Uncle
Georgica started for the Santa Cruz
Mountains yesterday. Have bought

named Maudica, etc. Your affection
