PHLLLIPSBUKQ, KANSAS. Among the lost arts recently revived is the making of Limoges enomel jewelry. A plain necklace can be made for 5400. Thia kind of enamel was much in de mand in the time of Socrates. It was supposed to have some hidden magic properties, and was principally used for making talismans. Old Uncle Frank Jckipee, a colored man who lives three miles from Midway, Ky., plowed up a copper box the other day which contained a number of silver dollars, halves and quarters. The box contained about ?40 in American and Spanish coins, the one of most recent date bearing the stamp of 1S07, showing the money must have been buried about that year or the year following. The most peculiar part of the circumstance is that in the early part of the present century, within a year or two of that date, a remote ancestor of the finder was hanged for murdering a peddler. lie made no confession and no trace of the plunder for which the crime was committed was ever found. Theue was exhibited in Baltimore last week a photograph representing the sev en'brothers of the Elder family, descend ants of William Elder, of Lancashire, England, who eettled in 1720 in Fred crick county, Maryland, where he ac quired considerable property, on a part of which Mount St. Mary's College at Em mittsburg was subsequently built. These seven brothers, whose ages range from C2 to 76 years and upward, met all to gether for the first time in fifty years at Cincinnati in December last, on the oc casion of the installation of Bishop El der, of Mississippi, the youngest but one of the brothers, and now in his 65th year, as BichbLshop of Cincinnati. Farmers living near Knowlesville, V. Va., are much excited over the reappear ance of the enormous reptile which for thirty years past has been occasionally Been in that neighborhood. A party of young men saw it a day or two ago on the farm of David Baker. They describe it as being eighteen or twenty feet long, and as thick as a man's body, carrying its head about two feet above ground while traveling. It was first seen in 1S05, then being about tenfeetlong, and many stories regarding it have been revived men wuo saw it in l 4 declare it lelt a track through the tall grass like that caused by dragging a heavy log. A par ty is on guard day and night at w hat is thought to be its hiding place. The widow of Marshal Suchet, Duke of Albufera, died in Paris the other day at the age of 90 odd years. She was mar ried when Joseph Bonaparte was King of Spain, and received from him as a wedding gift one of the eilendid hotels next to the British Embassy in Paris, In the military correspondence of Napo leon I, we find the following letter dated Paris, December 5, 1S11, and addressed to Berthier: "My Cousin Write to Mar shal Suchet to complain that hi3 wife carries on a correspondence with Mme de Saligny, in which she speaks of what happens in the army that these details should not occur in the letter of a lady, who ought to be acquainted neither with the number of troops nor their movements, who should Fpeak merely of her htalth, and that is all." It is curi ous to think of the Duchess d' Albufera surviving this for 73 years. Few pure bred dogs leave England ex cept on special orders. The mode of dealing there is different from that here A dealer over there is always required to send a photograph of a dog, with ful particulars as. to breeding, age, color, weight and the like. The dog, too, is sent to the owner on probation. If the would-be purchaser don't like him, the dog is sent back. It is these rejected dogs that are sent to this country as a speculation. Then, when a steamer ar rives, the dealers go down and look the dogs over, and if one happens to 6uit they pick him out. It takes a lifetime to become a good judge of a dog, and some f pend a lifetime and piles of mon ey in stock and then wind up by know ing nothing about them. The best terrapin found in the world the only kind the real epicurean will have rare caught right at the mouth of the Potomac, and nowhere else. These bring the highest market price in the market, and the taste of one delights the good eater. They are very scarce and hard to get, though. They are eanght one at a time, and the oyster boats bring to market sometimes two dozen, some times only a dozen or a half dozen, or even only one single terrapin. They are wilder and harder to get in the Summer. They are caught then only by fishermen "while seining for fish. Every time they get one it is a prize, and they put him in pound until they get more. In the Fall they are fat and easier to catch. In Sep tember they stop feeding and sink into the mud. The fishers then rake for them with tongs, digging deep into the bottom of the river and along the shore for them. At this time they are fat, and stay so all "Winter if they are not dis turbed. But if they get frightened out of their beda and crawl about much, they scratch their bellies, which worries them and makftJ them thin. SUMMARY. MISCELLANEOUS.

The American Consul, Mason Long, has made a report t o S cretary Frelingh uysen on thechofera epidemic now raging in France. In substance it is as follows: The terrible lesson on former epidemics has been well learned by municipal governments, and long beiore the first rumor of trouble at Toulon, Marseilles was cleaned and made ready for Summer heats. But with all the intelligent liberality which the city has exercised in the construction of her drainage system, there is an insurmountable difficulty in which all the Mediterranean cities are alike c impelled to face. Their sewers flow into a t deless and generally placid sea. The re-j-ult is that the latter grows foul and pesti lent. The same conditions are unmitigated by equally vigorous sanitary measures which prevail at Toulon, and it is thought that it was the dredging ot a disused dock there during the months of April and May which disclosed the seeds ot the present epidemic The Marseilles Government re lies solely upon the most rigid and search mg enforcement of recognized sanitary n isuits. ine oredging of the ports has been stopped, and that source ot miasma as lar as possible abated during the Summer. "Since the outbreak at Toulon the whole city has been literally washed with water and disinfectants. The attack of cholera h ts been tar more vigorous and fatal this v ear than in the great epidemic of nineteen ycais ago, and all present indications po.nt to a Summer of gloom and suffering for the people of Toulon and Marseilles. All that energy and liberality could perform and all that sanitary science cou d suggest has been done, but the pestilence is heie and defies restraint. The present situation may be summarized as lo lows: J he epidemic which now pre vails at Marseilles and Toulon is Asiatic cholera, imported beyond all reasonable doubt Irom Souion, China, by the French transport, Arthe, to the port of Toulon. At hrst the disease was a t pe medically ciassi hed as "benizu," but its malignity has since increased by its further dinusion and devei opment under the influence of continued hot weather. In compliance witn instruc tions from the Department, this Consulate has ascertained irom omcial sources that no emigrants have recently left either Tou lon or Marseilles by sea for the united States. It should be added, however, that few emigrants for American ports ever embark here, as the steamers leaving Marseilles usually touch at one ormcre Mediterranean stuiona,- before leaving their final point of departure, and the emigrants usually go by rail tn this port of departure to embark tr the United atates. it is tneretore re spectfully sugges.ed that all vessels bring ing emigrants or Lageage to the United States from Bordeaux, Havre or any oth-r French port not yet declared infected should be subjected upm their arrival to the most careiul s an l'ary regulations. Clean bills of health have been reinsert at this con sulate to all vessels c earing for ports in the United States since June 23th, and none such will be grauted until ilarseiiles is of ficially declared free from contagion. TEXAS KK VEIL CoDS'derable Excitement Caused by the Arrival of Sic it Cuttle at Kaua.t City aid Chlcagn. Supposed to be Affected v Jtll ltxaa Fever. The arrival of a number of sick cattle having been reported in the Union Stock Yards in Chicago, an examination was made by a number of veterinarians who are not yet ready to submit the official report. The fact is, however, they have agred that the disorder is Texas fever, superinduced y drinking water strongly impregnated with alkali. The cattle Lave been securely quarantined and isolated. Those in the lot that are unaffect ed are to be slaughtered subject tn the in spection of the Health Department. Those that are unable to recover are being hot. and those that are droopy will be held in quarantine until former develop ments! Another train consisting of twelve cars containing 240 cattle, arrived the 2Sih. They were branded the same as the herd which was found to be diseased yester day, and are Irom Southwestern Kansas. Fifteen were found dead in the cars, finy rivehad been thrown out dead on the wav. and a great many others were sick and hod been tramped on. Dr. Poaren, State Veter inarian, and Dr. De Wolfe, City Health "ommissioner, declare the trouDle to be bloody murrian. The entire herd, including those of yes terday, were ordered to be killed, making about 500 head in all. Official? declare that the cattle were evidently diseased before shipment, and from all mat can be learned, the entire herd was in the Kansas City Stock Yards thirty days before their ship ment to this city. In view of the fact that the cattle were thoroughly quarantined be fore being kilied, it is not believed the trou ble, whether it is Texas lever or bloody murrain, will extend any farther. HIAWATHA. Hiawatha, Kansas, special says: Texas or Spanish fever has appeared in this vicinity. A number of animals have died and teverai have been shot. Some weeks ago a train loaded with Texas cattle passing north was partially wrecked, nea- this place, and some stray animals were left beuind. It is supposed they communicated the disease which was first observed within the past few days and began to spread rapidly. Ev ery edort is being made to check its pro gress. MAKHATTAK. A Manhattan, Kansas, special says there have been lifteen additional deaths from Texas fever in the shipment of cattle re ceived here from Kansas City. The herd had been driven from Cimarron river to Caldwell, crossing the Texas cattle trail on the way. From Caldwell they were sent to Kansas City by rail, where they were bought by Major Adams and at once ship ped here. The sickness of the animals first appeared on their way to this place. Vet erinarian Holcombe is expected soon. Experts here do not anticipate an epidemic, believing the disease is not communicable except through Texas cattle. SEBEASKA. Information of the cattle disease, said to be Texas fever, prevalent at Maxwell, Neb.. was read here the 29th. Gov. Dawes im mediately dispatched a Commission to investigate, which will report ts-morrow. Commissioner Loring has also ordered Dr. Trumbower, of Illinois, to Maxwell. OMAHA. Omaha, Neb., special says the Texas fever has broken out among the cattle in that vi cinity, At Brady Island, in Western Ne braska, 100 animals are dead and hundreds more will probably die. Experts are on the ground investigating, and Gov. Dawes has promised to send a commission of vete rinarians, bteps will be taken to prevent the further importation of cattle from the infected regions of Texas without a thor ough quarantine. ILLINOIS. A dispatch from Roodhouse, III., says six teen car loads of cattle from the Indian ferritory arrived at the Chicago & Alton Stock Yards there Sunday night. Nineteen head died on the road from Kansas Gity, and it was believed the whole lot were infected with Texas fever. All that could stand up, twelve car loads, were forwarded to Chicago. The remainder, seventv-two in number, were dead Mon day morning. Andy Jacobs, ot Kansas City, in charge of the cattle, denied that they had Texas fever, and said that they were poisoned by eating loco weeds on the trail, but L. C. Tiffany, veterinary surgeon from Jacksonville, pronounces the disease Texas fever. The stock yards at Roodhouse have been disinfected with lime, and cattle for Chicago by this route were unloaded at Jacksonville last night instead ot at Roodhouse. The matter caused great excitement among the cattle and railroad men. THURSDAY. The disease is being investigated in all States where it has made its appearance, and the temporary scare it occasioned has abated. It is now thought that it can easily be eradicated. SPANISH FEVER SCARE. Two Hundred Head of Colorado Cattle, I'urchaoed by 11 on. . A. Adama, Dying Like Sheep. Topeka Commonwealth. Manhattan was thrown into a state of the wildest excitement yesterday over the fact that a bunch of Colorado cattle ship oed there by Maj. N. A. Adams, are dying off so rapidly that it is concluded they have the Spanish fever, consequent ly the people are greatly frightened Maj. Adams had been wanting to buy some stock cattle to put on his ranche near Manhattan, and talked about going to Colorado after them, expressing a pret erence to have Colorado cattle. Last week he learned that there were 2u0 head in the stock yards at Kansas City that would suit him, and at once bought them. They were tine-looking animals. Friday and Saturday he began shipping from Kansas City to Manhattan, expect ing that he would drive them out to his ranch, which is located on the Little Blue, some distance from town,yesterday. But it seems that the last car load got de layed at this city Sunday. "When they ariived here four head were dead in the car, two more almost dead, eo, supposing that they were probably overheated and badly crowded, the whole lot was un loaded and driven over to Wolfl & Mc intosh's Stock Yard. The two soon af terwards died there. The others that had gone on were in the shipping yards at Manhattan. Sunday night and yesterday morning they began to die, and at 2 o'clock in the afternoon a gentleman who came down from there says he says he saw the twenty-tilth lall and expire. In the meantime such an alarm had spread that the sheriff took possession of the cattle and quarantined them, and those ac quainted w ith the disease said that the animals are afflicted with Spanish or Texas fever. The sherifThad a long trench dug in the ground into which the dead carcases were to be thrown and burned and their ashes covered up. Governor Click re ceived several telegrams from there to dav, and he ordered Dr. Ilolcomb, the State Veterinarian, to report at Manhat tan immediately and make an investiga tion of the trouble. There is but little doubt that the dis ease is Spanish or Texas fever, and that these cattle became inoecuiated with it while in the stock yards at Kansas City, because they came there clean, nice, healthy brutes, and were in good condi tion. 'When an animal gts sick with the disease, it mopes around with hair turned forward, head down, eyes sleepy, until finally it falls over and expires. There is net much danger of the disease spreading so long as the afilicted herd can be kept isolated where other and healthy cattle cannot come in contact with them. Had the one carload not been delayed here, so that Major Adams could have started to drive out to his ranch on time, aa intended, Eiley county would be in a bad tlx now. Mrs. Pauline Grimm, hotel pro prietress at Indionapolis, committed suicide. cLaiiA&d citjf;rocicice Mxrhtu Kansa3 City, Augu t 2, 1SS1. The Tally Indicsior report.: w HKAl' il&itet lower.
