Charles TRAVKRS, an insurance agent tit Spartansburg, Pa. , was found dead near the depot at Franklin, the other day, and opinion is equally divided between suicide and murder. He was to have been married, but failed to make his appearance at the appointed hour. J. A. WEST, of Cincinnati, committed suicide in Chicago, June 7, by means of a chloroformed towel. He had been specu lating, and had lost, all his money. He left a note saying: "I am very sorry to have wronged any one who treated ine kindly and advised me well.

Lebarncs, the Law Clerk of the General Land Oifice, testified before the Public Land Committee of the Senate that certain land grant roads in Minnesota, Missouri and ebewhero have had certified to them a large amount of land in excess of tho amount they were entitled to under the laws making the grant. Mr. Strait, of Minnesota, introduced in the House a resolution of inquiry, directing the Secretary of the Interior to furnish to the House all the facts in his department tend ing to show the truth or falsity of the alle gation made by Mr. Lebarnes, and if found to be true, to make such suggestions as he may think best for the recovery of the land in excess, and for placing it again in posses sion of the Government an.l opening it for homestead and pre-emption settlement. Mr. Lebarnes alleges that under the loose practices inaugurated in the beginning the process of awarding lands to railro id com panies, without regard to the amount they ought to le legally entitled to receive, has gone on after the probable amount accruing to a grant has been readied, and in some instances after the possible maximum has been exceeded.

Mr. Rounds informs the Senate that the prosecution of the business of the Gov ernment printing offl je, working now, as it has been for many years past, in accord with the Typographical and B'ook-binders' I'nions, i-i dependent upon the action of those organizations in so far that if on re fusal of the Public Printer to abide by any or all of their rules and regulations a gen eral strike of workmen in the office was or dered, it would make necessary the stoppage of the Government printing until the oifice could be supplied with non-union workmen, and, in the opinion of the Government Printer, to supply the Government otucs with so large a number of skilled workftieu, necessary to do so great an amount and so high a grade of work, from among the num ber of non-union workmen would involve serious loss of time, and for such time nec essarily a lower standard of work would be done. Treasury officials say the rumors that a large amount of spurious bonds are in circulation are totally devoid of founda tion. In the words of Secretary Folger, they are idle stories started by "sensational go-si pers." It is somewhat singular, to say the least of it, that there should be sev eral millions of spurious bonds in circula tion without the knowledge of the depart ment. So far not a single one has been presented for redemption. The bonds re covered from Doyle have all been satisfac torily accounted for. There are no new de velopments in the case of Brockway.

The cause can not but partially be accounted for. There is found a very dangerous insect in many groves, which has effected much damage. The Indian River oranges will fall far short of a full crop. The present crop of pineap ples is very abundant and they are of large size and superior quality. Thousands are being shipped northward. Watermelons are very plentiful and fine, and large ship ments hi car-load lots are being made to the North. Northern visitors, with few ex ceptions, have taken their departure for their homes, where they may indulge in a cooler temperature. The State is neverthe less full of land buyers and speculators, and it is remarkable that almost every State in the Union, besides Europe and other for eign countries, is found represented. Flor- idans are flocking to the seashore and North ern cooling-off places for the summer. A man was recently charged with selling liquors without license at a point op posite Osceola, Ark., in the Mississippi River. There was no question as to where the saloon was located, but the defendant claimed that the Constitution of- 1874 de clared the boundary of the S'ate line on the east to be the middle of the main channel of the Mississippi River, and the channel was, on the 30th of October, 1874, located west of the sand-bar, and that the State line is therefore now where it was in 1874, while now the channel of the river is east of the bar. But the court. decided that the east line of the State was shifting, and that it always followed the main channel of the river, and so instructed the jury, who found the defendant guilty, and, being una able to agree upon the amount of the fine, the Court fixed k at $200, and the defendant appealed to the Supreme Court.

Cocoanut-growing is becoming an im portant industry in Florida. They grow to perfection, and promise to add greatly to the wealth of the State. Tallahassee's vegetable shipments amounted this season to 3,701 crates and barrels. Railroad property in Georgia increas ed two and a quarter million dollars in value last year. The loss of cane in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, by the overflow amounts to 7,456 acres, most of which was "plant, " and would have yielded not less than 12,000 hogs heads of sugar, worth over $1,000,000. The Athens (Ga.) gas company re ceived an order from Pennsylvania the other day for one thousand barrels of coal-tar. St. Louis merchants receive from the cotton region a general prediction of the failure of the crop-in the northern belt line, and whole sections are said to have been planted to corn.

A Sharp Attack of Bronchitis the Immedi ate Cause of Dissolution Conscious to the Last Sketch of the Remarkable Career of Italy's Liberator. Rome, June 2. General Garibaldi died a his home, on the sland of Caprera at 6:30 o'clock ihis evenimr, from an attack of bronchitis, from which he had been suffering for some time. The fatal illness was of short duration, but was occa sioned by a longr-existingr asthmatic complaint which developed suddenly into a sharp attack of bronchitis. This was further increased by the great debility of the patient, and be rapid ly succumbed to the attack. The news of his critical condition resetted the different mem bers of his family residing in Home and Ge noa this morning;, and they all immediately started for Caprera, but tailed to arrive iu time to see the General alive. Death took place some hours previous. The Government, on learning of his serious illness, sent Dr. Al baneze, of Rome, to his bedside, but the doctor could afford him no relief. General Garibaldi died wheu in a struggle, but was conscious till near the end. Giuseppe Garibaldi was born at Nice, Italy, of poor parents, July 22, 1807. Early in his life he began traveling by taking a sea voyage to Odessa and Rome. In 1832 he was implicated with Mazzini in a conspiracy against Charles Albert, King of Sardinia, and was compelled to quit the country. Again, in 1831, he r -newed the conspiracy, and was condemned to death. He escaped to France, landing at Mar seilles, and there shipped in an Egyptian cor vette, and offered his military services to the Bey of Tunis. But the life ho led was not suf ficiently exciting to please him, and in 1836 he was fighting for the Republic of Rio Grand' , then at war with Brazil. He was captured, together with his ships and crew, at Guale guay, where be was cruelly treated. Once more he regained his liberty, and immediately re sumed his battle for Rio Grande, his wife Aniti acting as his counselor. He then commanded an Italian legion of 800 men against tho dicta tor Kosas. and fought the battle of Salto Sant' Antonio. In 147, on learning of the elevation of Pius IX to the Papacy, he offered his services, transferred in 1818 to the Pro visional Government of Rome, but Charles Albert declined them. Garibaldi was received with great enthusiasm in Rome, and was in the thickest of the light when the French troops attacked that city. The French and Austrians set a price upon his head, and then instituted a systematic hunt for hifti. In the terrible times that followed his wife sank from cxbus tion aud almost died. He was followed Uy 3,000 of his soldiers to his exile in San Marino, but was compelled to disband his troops because tho Austrians were p: essjiig him on all sides. He was then known by his well-tnimed title of " the hero of Montevideo." The fall of Venice left him no refuge, and he began wandering. At Ravenna his wife died, and the great soldier met his first se rious set back. Again he traveled to Chiavari. but tto King of Sardinia gave him the choice of prison or exile. His next move was to the little isle ot Caprera, that was one day to become tbe solitary and renowned seat of the patriot. But he wearied of life there, and came to America, engaging in soap manufacturing at Statcn island, within ten miles of New York City. He was prosperous, and returned to Caprera in ls.14 and purchased tho northern part of the island. Here he remained until 15(, when he orgauizod the famous band of Al pine chasseurs a body of volunteers that made the whole Lombard campaign. He later engaged in an expedition against Sicily, and landed at Marsola May 11, 1860, gave battle near I alatanni on the 15th, and defeated the entire Bourbon army with his 1,000 chasseurs, enters ing Palermo in triumph May 27, assuming dic tatorship of the island. Tho Sicilians looked upon him as an angel of deliverance sent by God. Late in August he enterod Naples, and was then declared dictator of the two Sicilies, the world Iookingon with astonishment. When it was voted to annex the two Sicilies to that part of Ita y then governoi by Victor Em manuel, Garibaldi gave up the Kingdom he might have kept for his own, and on Novem ber 9, I860, retired to his solitary homo at Ca prera. When Nice and Savoy were ceded to France, Gar.baldi entered the Italian Parlia ment, and uttered his famous protest. In May, 1862, he organized the expedition of Sarnie-o for the liberation eif Venice, but the Government broke up the army before It had fairly started. Th.tu it was he raised the fa mous war-cry, " Rome or de ath I" which ended in the fatal battle of Aspromonto, where Italian riflemen tired upon him and wounded him in the foot, taking him prisoner August 12, is2, a elay of mourning for Italy. On December in, 18t"i2, Garibaldi was amnestied, and, with his woumls healed, returned to Ca prera. Iu 1864 he visited England, and was re ceived with great demonstrations. In 1866 he commanded a troop In tho war of freeing Venice, and won tho only victories of that in glorious campaign. A year latex he renewed his attempt to liberate Borne, aud de feated the Papal troops at Montcrotondo, and marched toward Rome. But the Papal troops and their French allies blew away the Garibaldians with the then newly-inveute! Chassep t. He was for some time held a prisoner, and then released to return to his island home. In 187D he re sponded te the appeal of Gambctta, and com manded the volunteers of the Vosges against the Prussians, his son Kicciotti also comtnand inir a body of French troops. After the capit ulation of Paris, Garibalii was elected Deputy for Bordeaux, but while attempting to exercise freedom of speech iu the French Assembly he was put down by tumultuous demonstrations of ill-will. Again be sought the solitude of Caprera. and turned his attention to literature. He produced three romances, "Clelia," "Can toni il Voluntarlo," and "IMillo," all below mediocrity. He was a man of great heart and action, but knew little of letters. Many times the Italian Government offered Garibaldi tempting titles and honors, but the old hero declined them all. in 1875 he was elected a member of the Italian Parliament, and received congratulatiims from almost every Government on the globe-. He took his scat at Rome amid the wildest enthusiasm, lasting several days. Then he began a project for the eleviation of the Tiber, and fer the im provement of tho Roman campngna. He was more or less embarrassed for nrm'-y iu 1874, and wh"n it became known large contribu tions were tendered him from Italy, England, Scotland uud America, most of which here fused. In April, 1876, he wrote to Signor De pretis announcing his acceptance of the dona tion of 10-,000 lire presenteel to him by the Na tion and the King. For several years Gari baldi has lived in almost absolute retirement at C aprera, and his name has been seldom seen in the public prints. His was a life of such ro mance and adventure, suffering aijd triumphs, that history scarcely holds its equal, and tho j ildcst flights of fletion fail to reproduce it And first and last he was tbe idol of Italy.

"What! is old Blank dead?" was the surprised query of a man who saw a funeral procession go by. "I don't know," was the cautions reply, "but I should judge so, for, as you see, they are burying him." m The old adage, "Honesty is the best policy," is a very odd saying. If a man is really honest he don't caro whether it is best policy or not, and as for the rest of the world they don't believe that it is the best policy. JV. Y. Herald.

Indepemfenf. MARY JANE TELLS ABOUT THK SPtCEBV COWS. They hail lots of cows, the Spicers had and they passed most of their time in our garden. The reason they didn't stay in the pasture was because tho fences were till broken down; for the Spicers were the most shiftless folks in Tuckertown. Why I cared about the cows was because I had to drive 'em out. Well, one day Grandpa said: "If those cows cot into my corn again, I'll drive 'em up to the pound." "What's the pound?" asked Dot. " It's a pen." saitl Grandpa, ' 'where you can drive any cattle you find on your land; ami the owner can't get, them out without paying a line." "Oh. I think that's elegant!" said I. "I know lots of people's cows I should like to get into the pound." When Grandpa went out, I said 1 would go anl tell Sarah Spicer just what he had said. "Now, Mary Jane, you just stay where you arc. You want your lingers in everybody's pies." It was Aunt Jane you might know who said that. I might have answered that she was so sparing with hers (especially mince) that I never could touch them. But I ddn't. I often think of real smart tilings, ami it's mean that I can't say i hem. But I declare, there is never any use at all in my arguing with Aunt Jane; for, when I get the best of her, s!ie always stiffens up and says: "Thexe, that will do, Mary Jane! Not another word!" Besides, it isn't right to answer back. So I just saitl nothing, but took Dot and marched straight off to the Spicers'. We found Sarah and Sam playing in front of their house. " How d' ye do, Mary Jane?" said she. "How d' ye do. Miss Spicer?" said I. "Mercy me, Mary Jane! what airs!" said she. " It's no use to put 'em on here in Tuckertown, I can tell you, for folks know all about you." "There, tha will rlo," said I, as like Aunt Jane as ever I could. "I only eame over here to tell you that we are going to have your cows put in the pound, the very next time we lind "em in our garden." "Pon!" cried out that Hop-'o-niy-thumb of a Sam. "Your grandfather has said so, lots of times, but he never floes." " Doesn't dare to!" snapped Sarah. 1 was jnst boiling mad. The idea of my being treated so by those low Spi cers! "Dare to?" said I. " I wonder who you think would be afraid of such a poor, shiftless set?" And then I took Dot's hand, and just ran for home, so as not to give Sarah a chance to have the last word. Oh, but don't I 'spine her! Well, that afternoon, Dot and I were in the barn playing with all our might, when Aunt Jane screamed out: " Mary Jane! Mary Jane! The cows are in the garden. Run anil drive them out." " It's too bad!" cried Dot "Those Spicers' cows spoil all our fun." " I'll tell you what," said L after I had shoo' d them into the road. "I'm going to drive 'em right up to the pound. I'll show that Sarah Spi cer r " Why. Mary Jane Hunt!" cried silly Dot. "Wrhaf II Grandpa say? I won't go." "Say? Why, that he is much obliged to me. Dot trotted after me, as meek as a lamb. It wasn't far to the pound; but there was one cow and her calf that wouldn't hurry, and, besides, we walked rery slowly along th: sunny parts of the road and rested everv time we came to a shady place; so it was late in the after- noon when we leu uic pound, ami turned to come home. We came quite a distance by the road, and then through Mr. Hall's corn-field and the woods beyond, and right out in the Spicers' pasture. Dot anal noticed that there was only one cow left now in the pasture. "I hope Sarah and Sam will have a good time hunting after the others; and Srood enough for 'em," said I. "Per iaps her father is just scolding her now for letting 'em stray away." ' Well, he isn't, for there he is now." Dot pointed, and I saw Sarah in the swing on the butternut tree in front of their house, and her father was swing ing her up ever so high. When she saw us she jumped out and ran to the fe nee. " Hope you'll rind your cows to-night, Sarah, said L You had better go for 'em," chimed in Dot. Hope you'll find iours," retorted" Sarah. " If you don't keep 'em out of our garden we arc going to drive 'eui tc the pound." " Te, he," giggled Hum. Although we hurried o, it was lato when we got home. We were afraid that supper would be all over, and Ann! Jane woald -scold us for being late. But though the table was sci and Grand pa was home from work, no one had sat down to il. "Been mailing for the milk," said Aunt .lane. "But, la, it's no use to. wait any longer. I'll use morning s milk." Yes," said Grandpa, who was wash ing his hands at the sink. "Do let's have supfter. Children, have you seen the cows?" "Why, no," I answered, "not ours; but Dot and 1 drove the Spicers' cows up to the pound." "Those that were in our garden?" demanded Aunt Jane, looking straight at me. I nodded. "Well, of all (he little mischief-mak ers! Those were our cows. " "My gracious, goodness me!" said I; " and Grandpa's got to pay a line iel his own cows out of the pound! Oh, dear! I do hope Sarah Spicer won't lind out about it." And so Dot and I had to go to bed an hour earlier than usual-; but Sarah Spicer doesn't know anything atXMliL A. 9. Phmpttm, in St. NtiMtimt.

George's Brighf Idea. A boy I knew very well was sure he ftnderstood all about Gunpowder. Firing at a mark was splendid port, he had heard. He would try that, by way of variety.

Now this wise bOT, who kuew just what powder could do, said to himself: " I - hall have time to get my gun to my boulder before tbe powder burns, and then won't 1 hit the mark!" Lighting three, matches, so as to be sure there was fire enough, he dropped them flown the opening in the bamboo. He looked in to see that they re; died the powder. Then he was g'dtig to Uike aim. But he never took it. The powder was too quick for him; anil he saw only a blinding flash, and felt a great heat in his face. He forgot all aboiti the tarfjet, the gun, and the glory he was t w.n bv hitting the bull s-cye.
