FABM NOTES. To clear moss from fruit trees, it is said that nothing is better than earbolio soap and lye. Make common lye of -wood ashes, not strong, and add half a pound of carbolic soap to a three-gallon pail of boiling lye. Apply hot with a swab to old trees. It has been naed with entire success on apple, pear, peach and cherry trees, destroying every particle of moss it touches. A green salted hide is understood to be thoroughly cured, free from salt, dirt, meat, horns, tail, bones and sinews, and before being weighed all such sub stances are removed, or a proper deduc tion is made from the weight, and when the head skin hangs to the hide by a narrow strip, it is cut off before weigh ing. To cleanse casks or ban-els S. H. Sherman says the simplest, quickest and most effectual method is to burn a handful of straw in the cask, followed by washing with scalding water. The most rancid pork barrel may be made perfectly sweet in a very short time by this method. If anything will cleanse a cask that has contained oil, fire will do it ; but even, this might fail where the oil has penetrated the wood. Aashes, leached or nnleached, are ex cellent if applied, to apple, pear or peach trees. If nnleached, we do not advise applying them close to the body, though there is little danger they will harm the tree. It should be remem bered, however, that Buch application is just as useful to the tree if made anywhere within the area covered by the small branches as if applied close about the body. Careful estimates prove that a horse requires for his sustenance the produce of eight times as much land as would furnish food for a man. An English farmer compares the con duct of those who cultivate only the surface of their farms to the unwisdom of the owner of a coal mine, who, hav ing six seams of coal, only works the upper one, -and neglects those lower down. It is said that the disagreeable click ing noise caused by overreaching in horses will be prevented if the black smith in shoeing cuts off the toe or crust of the shell of the hoofs on the fore feet instead of on the hind feet, as is the frequent practice. There are diseases to which cows are subject which do not lessen the flow of milk for some time ; yet this secretion is seriously affected in quality and .is dangerous to use, and cases are on record where the milk of a sick cow is absolutely poisonous, and has caused death to many children. - PRACTICAL RECEIPTS. Buckwheat Cakes. Sift together one quart of buokwheat flour and a teacup f ul of cornmeaL In cool weather make up a moderately thin batter with luke warm sweet milk; salt to taste. In warm weather it is best to use water ; the milk would sour. Add half a tum blerful of good lively yeast (hop yeast is the best for buckwheat) ; make it up in a jar, covering closely, at nine o'clock at night. The next morning beat tkree e?g3 ; let it set fifteen or twenty minutes ; just before frying stir in a teaspoonful f soda, first sprinkling it over the bat ter. Soda is unnecessary if the batter is perfectly sweet. ' Eggs are hot essen tial, but are an improvement. A mix ture of four parts of buckwheat, two of Graham and one of Indian, makes a more healthy cake, and more spongy. Chow-chow. Take a quarter of a peck of green tomatoes and ' the same quanity each of pickling beans and white onions, one dozen each of cucum bers and green peppers, one head of cabbage. Season to the taste with mus tard, celery-seed and salt. Pour over these the best cider vinegar, "sufficient to cover. Boil slowly for two hours, continually stirring, and add while hot two tablespoonfuls of the finest, salid oil. Indian Griddle-cakes. Three hand f uls of Indian meal (yellow and white mixed), one teaspoon (level full) of soda, one teaspoonful of salt, four of sugar ; pour on boiling water, stirring briskly to the thickness of stiff mush ; pour on cold milk till it is as thick as gruel,-then add sifted flour to the consistency of griddle-cakes, thick or thin as prefer red. They can be varied by the addi tion of one or two eggs beaten and add ed last. A Farmer's Club. Mr. Gorham, of Whiteside, gives a statement of his experience with a Farmers' Club which had saved its members over $2,000 by buying direct from the manufacturers. They save about $10 on each plow, $30 on reapers, $18 on corn-planters, $20 on sowing machines. Wheat they sold directly to the miller last season. They got sev eral cents more a hundred for pork than if they had not' had an organization. They shipped butter, eggs, etc., and got better prices for them. They meet recrularlv once a month. Th nffioem jet no salary, except the purchasing agent, wno naa tnree per cent, on all purchases. Mr. Prickett related that in his county a club wanted to buy from a manufacturer. He refused, un less iney wouia nuy more than the agent sold. ; The club let bin alone, and now he had come to crave the cus tom of the members. He and others are making propositions, and offering to deduct 26 per cent, from their retail price. HOW TO KEEP MEAT. Meat is much better for family use when at least one week old in cold weather. The English method for keeping -meat for some time has great merit. Experts say hang up a quarter of meat with the cut end up, being the reverse of the usual way, by the leg, and the juice will remain in the meat, and not run to the cut arid dry up by evaporation.' It is worth a trial, and when made will be continued. Jo Indian Outbreak Probable. Since the beginning of the Modoc war interested parties in Oregon have sought to give currency to a belief that the Indians of that State and of Wash ington Territory threaten trouble to the whites in those sections. A representa tive of the San Francisco Chronicle had a conversation with an Indian trader just from Washington Territory, and who claims to be thoroughly acquainted with the condition, character, and pres ent feeling towards the whites of the Indians concerned. He says that from personal observation and knowledge, at the time of his departure from home on December . 17, everything was quiet among the tribes, and that there was not the slightest indication of. any hos tile feeling against the whites or of an intended outbreak. Throughout tho. route on his journey to San Francisco he found the same peaceable disposition manifested. The Indians in Oregon and Washington Territory live by hunting and fishing, and the married men among (hem cultivate small gar dens. . The informant also says that they submit all their internecine dis cords to whites whom they respect, and submit to their decisions. . Under these circumstances it would be well to ac cept all stories of threatened outbreaks among these Indians with grains of allowance. As to the probable influence of the recent-severe weather on the trees in the fruit belts of Michigan and South ern Illinois generally, it may be said that the yield will be np to the average, both in quality and quantity. The Modoc Side of the Question. Our California exchanges come to us filled with additional details of the re cent battle between the Modocs and the United States troops and volunteers. In addition to the particulars of this engagement and the participants therein all concur in admitting that the Modocs fought with extraordinary cour age many facts interesting in view of the proportions that the war has as sumed are given concerning the tribe itself, its history and condition. Not a few have come forward to champion the cause of the Modocs, and to proclaim the wrongs that have led them to their present desperate stand against the United States Government and the people of California and Oregon. The Modocs, only a handful now, and a pit iful remnant of their former proud host, have ever been a warlike tribe, though they have been true to their treaty stip ulations and have for many years been friendly and peaoeable in their dealings with their white neighbors. Their de privation of their " tule lands " large marshes abounding in fish, beaver, ot ter, and wild fowl, and whose advanta ges excited the cupidity of the whiteB was the cause of their present hostile attitude. A physician who has had twenty-two years' acquaintance with the affairs of Siskiyou County, where their lands are situated, and who has had extensive practice among them, writes to the San Francisco Chronicle that the Modocs are of stature, appearance, and intelli gence, like whites; that many of their women have been married to men of business in that neighborhood, and that their children hare been raised, edu cated, and married in and about Yreka. He further states that in the course of his practice as a physician in the house holds presided over by these Indian wives, he has ever found " as much con venience for the' administration of med icines the sugar-bowl, the spoon and the cup, the clean bed, and the towel as he has found elsewhere, and far su perior to many whites called citizens." A sympathizing editor writing of them, and apparently well versed in their his tory, speaks of Captain Jack and his devoted followers as " really and truly heroes, as sublime in their heroism as Leonidas and his. Spartan band, and equally deserving of immortalization in song and story," and contrasts their struggle for existence with the develop ments of this degenerate age of sham and shoddy, of Credit Mobiiier, and Congressional corruption. " The Mo docs," he says, "are a short-haired tribe. By long contact with the whites they have become partially civilized. rney speaK Hingusn as well as some of their white neighbors, and are as well behaved as average white men." Nor have they failed to exhibit evidences of magnanimity which justify the opinion expressed of them; for, says the writer, when the war was forced upon them they did not strike without warning. " They made no secret of their purpose to resist any forcible attempt to remove them, and also to retaliate upon white settlers. When they attacked the lat ter they let the women and children 'go unharmed, and even without insult a wonderful exhibition of magnanimity considering the light in which their own women have been regarded, and the manner in which they have been treated by white men." These are some of the glimpses of the Modoc side f the question which come from California. What Beecher Thinks of Death. I have known morbid people to spec ulate as to how they were groins: to look in their coffins. I have known crown people who were full of imagination about the grave. Death is not only heathenish, but barbarous in their thought. I never think of dying except with pleasure, as I would of translation. To me the mere passing through is noth ing; it may be a little longer or a little shorter. I have always hoped it would be very short. I may horrify some people by saying it, but I pray God will give me sudden and instantaneous death. I would rather die by being struck by lightning than die with con sumption. If it be God's will that I should become old and toftling and grow feebler and feebler before I die I am willing that it should be so, but if I were left to my choice I should like to break off short and die a strong man, in the middle of battle; but that is for God to decide, and not for me. Dying to me is not at all the humil iation of the body. It is the exaltation of the spirit. It is the emergence of the 'soul from this outward form. It is our development out of this sphere into a higher one. It is not the ushering of men into a state of weakness and gloom. It is the inauguration of a condition of power and joy. It is the moving of the soul in the direction of amplitude and glory. It is the endowing of the soul with the riches of immortal life in its highest .forms and in its greatest ben- enoences. I do not know that a nightingale sit ting in the twilight and singing with all its iittie soui, nas me least idea tnattne whole neighborhood is charmed with its song; but I can conceive that a soul may be m such a blessed state of expe rience that it may, like a nightinsale. charm the wide circles in heaven with inspiring music. The Anostle did not care to ha nn. clothed; he did not care to get rid of his burden, except by overcoming it mrougn uivme grace; Dut ne desired to be clothed upon. He desired a better manhood spiritual manhood, heavenly manhood. He did not take a gloomy view of suffering and death. Some men think of dying. I do not think of any thing black or smirching when I think about death. I think of gold and pre cious stones and flashing wings. Some men think ef an iron gate with an ugly, grim jailer, who, with a big key, that is not rusty, turns it often. I think of a " pearly gate," as Milton calls it, which turns on golden hinges. Some men think of dying as they think of disease. I think of dying as the flight of the bird higher and higher into the purer ether. Now, it seems to me that no thought of death is valid or right which does not leave you stronger, more joyous, hap pier. I am not going to die downward. I am not going to die toward hell. I mean, by the grace of God, to die to ward heaven. And I am going to think of it so as to take some comfort of it beforehand. I am going to shake the tree of Jife so that if I do not get the golden fruit here, some leaves shall drop down for the healing of my heart. II. W. Beecher. His Speculation. The late Mr. Mor rison, one of the richest men in Eng land, in early life entered a dry goods warehouse, where he contrived to secure the affections of his employer's daugh ter. They were married, and he was taken into the business, to which he ultimately succeeded. One great stroke he made was buying np all the crape in England, in anticipation of the death of the Princess Charlotte of Wales. This lucky hit is supposed to have put a very large sum of money into his pock et. He invested a large portion of his enormous wealth in real estate, and be came one of the greatest landlords in the United Kingdom. One of the most singular of the nu merous products of California is fig brandy. From seven trees there were produced last year two hundred pounds of dried figs and twenty-five gallons of brandy. The brandy was sold at $5 a gallon and the dried figs for twenty-five cents a pound. A Singular People. A recent traveler describes a state of society among a singular people, which amusingly supposes that it is both civ ilized and humane. These people, he ays, especially pride themselves upon their superiority to all others, and upon their triumphs in science and what they call modern improvement. Captain Gulliver does not seem to have reached them in his travels, although it is said that Dean Swift himself hoped at one time to be sent out as a bishop among them; and it would appear that they are sadly in need of bishops or some other truly humanizing influence, for the traveler's faithful pictures of their condition show a situation which should lead the Board of Foreign Missions to lose no time in sending out missionary reinforcements. There are two new and striking illustrations of the situa tion of these people, who have not, like the Houyhnhums, the faces of animals; but what they may have for hearts, as the traveler aptly remarks, " Mercy only knows." It is one of their customs to take a man who has killed another and stran gle him with a rope. They pique them selves on their science, while they re sort to the most brutal and shocking method of suffocation. The races whom this people denounce as semi-barbarous kill their criminals with fatal certainty, and with no other shock than that which necessarily arises from a violent death. This nation of Mgn pretension until recently made the occasion of caoital execution a public festival, but now it has changed its custom, and is sues invitations to the strangling to a select party only. - Our adventurous traveler, who congratulates himself upon having escaped safely from their shores, says that but a month or two since he was present at one of these ter rible scenes, and that the wretch who suffered, instead of being destroyed at once, was two or three times swung up by the neck before his life was extinct, while the invited guests, mad with the fiery liquor which is the popular drink of the country, shouted and swore in a frenzy of glee, so that the ferocity of the throng in the old Coliseum when gladiators slaughtered each other, or of the Spanish crowds at a bull fight when the animal disembowels the man, was tame and spiritless in the compari son. It is but just to these people to say, says the traveler, that some of them are shocked by this traditional custom, and protest against the bung ling horrors of such scenes. But they are derided as milksops and sentimen tal fools who reserve all their sympa thies for poor, dear murderers. And such is the sensitiveness of this heroic people that they are more afraid of a sneer than of an argument. J! or tliere are men among them who put an enor mous speaking trumpet to their mouths, fill it with their own wind and then call its blast public opinion. This latest traveler also describes an other fact about this singular people which to us, who are truly civilized, seems absolutely incredible. He says that in their cities they build enormous buildings called hotels, which nsn to a great height and are filled with stran gers who happen to be in the town, who are lodged in little cells arranged upon corridors, so that the whole resembles a honeycomb. These structures are built of solid material in the lower sto ries, from which escape is always easy should a fire break out, and which can readily be flooded with water. But the higher parts are constructed of lighter and more inflammable stuffs, which, should they take fire, are beyond the reach of water, and the higher you go, escape in case of danger is more and more uncertain. In countries of a low civilization, of course, such lofty buildings would either be really fireproof, or they would be so amply provided with means of es cape that there would be the same feel ing of security upon the roof as in the lowest rooms. But our traveler says that in one of the largest and most renown-. ed of these buildings there was a room in the very roof, beyond the reach of water, and accessible only by a wooden staircase. The passage in which it was built was, of course, a huge roaring draught the moment a fire began below, There were windows in the room -covered with iron netting, which could not be broken. One night during his stay in the country a fare began near the staircase, and swept roaring up to the roof, and eleven poor women, servants of the great house, sleeping in that cruel room, were caught, without chance of succor, and so, God help them! per- lslied in inconceivable agony. As the traveler remarks, this is a kind of catastrophe which is simply unneces sary. An honest and efficient regard for human life would make it absolute ly impossible. But, he adds, there is something ghastly in the fact that a people which permits such needless human slaughter disdains, with appa rent sincerity, other times and coun tries, and actually plumes itself upon its civilization and knowledge. To us who are truly civilized and humane, and full of all wisdom, the tales of such a traveler, if we can really believe them, bring only a mingled gratitude and Eity.

The Lava of Vesuvius. The condition of the lava of the re cent eruption is thus described by a writer in Nature. At first the whole surface of the lava-streams seems to ex hale steam and hydrochloric acid, and the atmosphere is filled with a disa greeable odor which makes breathing uncomfortable. But very quickly the exhalations are localized around the little centers of fire, whose activity con tinues for many months, and emana tions from whiah are gradually modi fied. Thus, as seen from Naples at the time of the visit, the whole of the lava appeared to.be smoking, and it was pos sible clearly to distinguish the tracks of the whitish vapors which wandered over the surface; but close at hand there was nothing to be seen but the fumaroles, between each of which there is plenty of space. The gas and the hot vapors which the lava emits are charged with numerous substances, and become the source of mineral deposits which fill the tourist with wonder. One of the most curious phenomena observed is the power of the burning lava to retain an enormous quantity of water and salt, which it does not allow to escape until it begins to cool. The formation of salt is shown generally over the whole stretch of lava emitted in 1872. Soon after the surface cools it is covered with a light crust of salt, which forms in similar flowery patterns on the beds of cinders that cover the plains, the cin-r ders themselves emitting everywhere hydrochloric acid. The first showers of rain caused this deposit to disappear rapidly, and there remained on the 12th of May only scanty traces, except on the lower surface of the blocks, where the rain had not the power to dissolve it. But the salt continued to be deposited in the vents, from which were detached beautiful crystals and graceful concre tions; it continued also to be formed upon the great deposits of cinders on the cone of Vesuvius, and even on May 19th the summit of the mountain, as seen from the Observatory, appeared, from this cause, as if sprinkled with snow.

As I was passing along, one of the west-side avenues the other afternoon, says a New -York magazine writer, my way. was obstructed by some workmen who were carrying boxes , from an open lot and piling them in a cart which had A it i mi been backed up against me curD. xne boxes were of unpainted pine, oblong, and of various sizes each with a num ber chalked upon it. I soon found out what was happening. The contents of an old city graveyard were ueing re moved to an out-of-town cemetery, to make room for a row of new brick stores. The graves belonged to a con gregation of early German settlers, whose great grandchildren perpetuated the ancient associations of church and country, and had found ample room, far from the impertinence of improve ment, where they might be gathered to their fathers or, at least, wnero tneir fathers might be gathered to them. The mourners did not go about the streets; there was not a wet eye any where; not so much as a handkerchief. No not even the sable, squeak-soled undertaker, to give that air of solemn decency to the occasion in its presence dreadful, but in its unused absence more awful still. And yet it was the saddest funeral that ever I saw. Yes. leather-faced, jovial workmen hustling your pine boxes over the side walk; yes, red-cheeked girl3 and boys peering between the fence-pailingswith eyes of wonder; yes, twittering snow birds; yes, great hurrying procession of people, with hearts full of Christmas or the devil; yes, dreamy loiterer this is what it all comes to! You shall have your day to be wept over and honored, dead; your one, own, only funeral: the closed blinds; the decorous little bi colored banner of woe . at the door knob; the rows of strange chairs in the parlor; the scent of flowers; the hushed crowd: the tremulous prayer: the low voice of the singers; the tears; the stifled sobs; the sudden, lieart-oroKen out-cry; the hearse; the dust-to-dust. But the big world will move n in its way; aye the little world that was all the world to you, it also will move on. Not without a difference, surely; for to some others it will never again be the same world. Still, it will move on. The living will not forget you O, no! Your image in some nearts may grow aim dimmer, but in others it will be ever fresh and bright and beautiful. " The living!" but what about the dead! Is there remembrance in tne tomb i uajs and nights, and summers and winters, new moons and old moons, cloud and sunshine the old unending round and some idle dreamer may stop a mo ment to wonder what sort of a mortal it was that has come to be a ruckle f bones in box No. one hundred and eleven. With these thoughts came another thought which is quite apt to follow such a sort of self-consciousness, rather, that separates a man from his fellows, a saying to one s sell tnese people are all mistaken, insanely busy about matters of no earthly or heavenly consequence, scampering to and Iro on fools' errands; excited about nothing; it is every bit vanity and vexation of spirit. I had the feeling of one who looks at a play from behind the scenes, and smiles to himself at his friends in the parquet who. seem to have forgotten that they are only at a show. Why! he knows that Ophelia's flowers are made of tissue paper; and that Hamlet's calves are stuffed with sawdust; he can lay his hand upon the absurd little spectacled prompter whose sharp whis pers from the wings are translated on the stage into tender murmurings or passionate appeals. He knows and sees this but what does he know of the master-mind that informs all ? what does he see of the miffhtv truth in untruth; the subtle, resulting beauty that thrills the souls of those who lend themselves freely to the magnificent illusion? He and he alone is the fool! So with this last figure I put to flight that old haunting demon of mine the demon of the doctrine of mdiflerence the philosophy that teaches the unre alitv of things temporal. O the false hood of it! O the farce indeed it would make of life! Jocko's Jokes Not Appreciated". Thomas Findley, importer of blooded fowls and proprietor of a saloon in San Francisco, a local paper says, recently conceived the idea of augmenting the stock of curiosities in. his saloon by the addition "of two large and intelligent monkeys. The animals arrived on the last steamer from the Orient. The cus tomers watched the antics of the two strangers with eager interest, dubbed them Jim and-"Susie, and voted Jim a fellow of infinite jest, and the monkeys scampered to and fro the while and chat tered merrily. Susie went to bed at a reasonable hour, and did not object to being locked in her cage, but Jim would not tolerate the advance of any one. when near his cage, and was left roost ing over a door when the time for clos ing the saloon arrived. Next morning tne bar keeper opened the door, glanced around, saw something flying through the air, and dodged his head just in time to escape a sound blow. He peeped into the window and saw Jim perched on a tall ale cask, with a pile of boxes around him, and looking like an enraged gorilla, evidently waiting for the reap pearance of the bar keeper's head. Now the bar keeper, a man of inflexible will and a very Sampson in physical power, is not a person who cares to risk his life unnecessarily, and therefore he rein forced his ranks and sought to overawe Jim. The monkey was evidently deter mined not to yield without a struggle, for he gathered all the available soda bottles and boxes and chunks of wood about his stronghold, and, upon the ad vance of the bar keeper and his com mand, nunea nis missiles toward tne enemy with great rapidity and precision, and as long as his ammunition held out he could not be dislodged. Finally Jim was brushed with a club, and persuaded to keep quiet. The strong smell o! liquor caused the bar keeper to look around with anxiety, and well he might. Jim had emptied whiskey and brandy upon the floor, treated Susie to whiskey until she succumbed to its effects and was in a beastly state of intoxication, and had filled all the bottles with saw dust, the damage amounting to $40. Mr. Findley no longer takes any inter est in quadrufuanons animals of tne class mammalia. Excited One may get some concep tion of the terrible panic that would occur in a crowded theatre in case of fire, from the scene at a Cincinnati thea tre lately. During the matinee per formance smoke was seen issuing from the registers, and a general rush was made in all directions. Men jumped from the gallery to the paiquette, wo men screamed, and everybody was in danger of being trodden down and crushed to death, but had very little chance of getting out. There proved to be very little -smoke and no fire of any consequence, and the audience was brought to its senses. The Pacific Bailboad.

Extraordinary Cures. We have read many accounts of - extraordinary cures by Dn. Walkeb's California Vinegar Bitters, which have seemed incredible. We are inclined to believe them, as many of those who vouch for them are persons whose veracity we can guarantee. The newspapers teem with testimonials of this character, and there is an air of praticularity and of truth about them which cannot be resisted. One manifest superiority the "Vinegar Bitters possesses over other Alterative and Tonic preparations. It contains none of the burning fluids with which most advertised Bitters are impregnat ed. It cannot create fever. Instead of clouding the brain, it clears it if cloud ed. It is well known that Alcohol, even of the purest description, weakens and untones the stomach instead of bracing it, and is, therefore, poison in cases of Indigestion. Fancy, then, what must be the effect of the cheap Eire-water employed m making ordinary Hitters and Tinctures, on the weakened and in flamed digestive organs. Vinegar Bit ters, on the other hand, soothes the stomach while it increases the appetite and relaxes the bowels.

Can any Medicine do More l The art of changing the base metals Into gold has not been discovered, but the nappy results of a dis covery Infinitely more Important are familiar to the community, and have been so for the past twenty years. To exchange debility for visor, sickness for health, apathy for energy, gloom for cheerfulness is a much more desirable operation than to trans mute lead into the root of all evil. And this is what Hostettor's Stomach Bitters accomplish, and have been accomplishing daily, ever since their intro duction. Dyspepsia, biliousness, nervous affec tions, constipation, intermittent fevers, rheuma tism, sick headache and general debility are no longer the bug-bears that they were a fifth of a cen tury ago. The Bitters taken as a protective modi- cine, prevent them, and taken as a remedy enres them, and the people know it. Hence their over shadowing reputation and enormous sale. The fume of the great vegetable specific is ever on the march, and at a pace that no competitor can live. It is to-day the foremost medicine of its class in the civilized world. Every now and then attempts are made to rival it, and sometimes a nostrum con cocted in the idle hope of sharing its popularity, has a brief spurt of apparent success. Bnt it is all illusion. One by one they sink like stones in the sea, while thb greot tonic, whose celebrity has been the cause of these blind ventures, continues to ride on the topmost wavo of public favor, unap proached and unapproachable.

Dr. Ejtchie, a citizen of a neighboring town, a local paper Bays, was on a little spree, and the murder at Coldwater being fresh in his mind, ne accused every one he met, in a jocular way, of being the man who had com mitted the murder. Finally he met a stranger, and being just tipsy enough not to care whom he accosted or what he said, he addressed the stronger in the same manner : "Yes you you are the man who murdered Johnson at Coldwater. " A look of guilt overspread the man's face, and simultaneously he ran his hand in his bosom as if to draw a weapon. Dr. Eitchie, observing the movement, collared him with his left hand, and with his right drew a dirk from his pocket, and holding it threat eningly above him, told him if he at tempted to draw a weapon he would plunge that knife to his heart in a sec ond. He then commanded the man to withdraw his hand from his bosom, which command was speedily obeyed, when, instead of a weapon, the man drew out the sum of Sl.iuo, which ne dropped on the ground at his feet, and which had been taken from the body of the murdered man. Meanwhile a crowd had gathered around the doctor and his prisoner, and the evidence of the man's guilt was by this time so palpable that he was declared to be under arrest and securely tied.
