Raw Cora Greedily Eaten by Hungry Men, Women and Children. A courier arrived here to-day In great dis tress from Patrick County, situated in one of the most remote districts of the State. He gives a terrible account of the sufferings of the people there, and reports) no less than 6,000 men, women and children actually starv ing, some already dead, and others dying for want of food. This sickening state of affairs was brought about by the total failure of the crops in that county last summer, anl, while the people have been sorely pressed for many months, it is only within the last two months thut their meager supplies have been abso lutely exhausted and themselves brought to starvation. Patrick County is situated in one of the most mountainous and Inaccessible regions of tbe State.

In some instances families have kept alive bv boiling weeds and actu ally eating leaves from tho trees. Some Ot the sturdy mountaineers, who had an idea that the starvation district was limited to an area of about twelve tables, have walked twenty miles, only to be met on all sides by the piteous appeals for bfliad " Any thing to eat for my starving w ife and chil dren:" Men who h ve been through battles and stood all sorts of hardships have been seen on the cross-roads weeping as thtey real ized the terrible situation in which their fami lies have bean placed. Remote as the district Is, reports are coming in giving sickening de tails of the condition of affairs. The appeals come: ' We don't want any money, but send us meal and flour."

The reports of farmers being swindled by traveling sharpers are less numerous than they were a few years ago. Farmers are not as anxious as they were of becoming agents for the sale of useless Implements or to pur chase patent rights. They are more careful about signing orders for lightning-rods and ad vancing money for goods to be delivered In the future. In brief, they are becoming more in telligent in all business matters. Cases of swindling are occasionally reported, but when they are it is evident that the sharpers have been obliged to reaort to some new dodge In :rder to insure success. A new swindle, ac cording to local reports, has been perpetrated in several places in Iowa during the past month. It requires two persons to manage it successfully. They watch the papers for no tices of estrays. One goes to look at a horse or cow, and soon decides that it is not the one he has lost. During his visit he care fully notices the size, color and pocullar marks on the awfmal, and forms a pretty ac curate opinion in regard to its weight and age. He reports all these matters to his "partner," who. in a few days, pays a visit to the farm where the animal was taken up. He is able to give so full and accurate a description of the "lost ' animal that the person in whose pos session it is has no reluctance in offering to give it up. The pretended owner, however, finds it inconvenient to take it home, and of fers to sell it at a low price. The farmer ac cepts the proposition to sell, and pays over the money, in the course of a few days the rightful owner comes along and claims the animaL and produces evidence that it is his. The residence of the seller can not be ascer tained, and, of course, the buyer is out the money he has paid. (Mcngo Times. An Ivory Famine Feared. it is not unlikely that ivory will soon become so scarce that its use in the hape of pianoforte keys, knife-handles and fans will be reserved for the afflu ent. The rapid advances in the value of ivory are causing some uneasiness in the market. At the last quarterly sale, which closed on the 2tth ult., there were only eitrhty-one tons offered in cluding ten tons withdrawn from pre vious auctions as against 122 tons of fered in April, 1881. The falling oft was mainly owing to the continued scarcity of cape only one and a half tons and the limited supply of west coast African eleven tons. From Zanzibar and Bom bay there were thirty-three tons, twenty-four tons from Alexandria, and nine tons from Malta. All descriptions, ex cept for billiard-ball purposes, have gone up from 3 to 4 per hundred weight and the ivory cutters have re solved for the second time this year to raise their prices. The stoves in the docks this year amount to 133 tons, compared with the 213 tons for the corresponding period of last year. Mr. W. Wostenholm, Sheffield, has just had invoiced to him no fewer than 522 tusks, which, he says, will all be cleared out in a fortnight. These tusks represent 276 elephants, and if one iyory cutter alone can get through with so many in so short a time there is some fear of the elephant being relegated to the lost species of animals. Jjondon Engineer. A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. An Insane Mother Gives Strychnine to Her Four Children and then Takes the Poison Herself Five Dead Bodies and Some Quaint, Pathetic Notes Tell tbe Sad and Terrible Story. The Chicago papers of the 11th give the fol lowing particulars of the recent terrible trage dy in that city : The family lived on the second floor of a house on Finnell street, near Wentworth ave nue, occupying two small rooms. The front one was the kitchen and dining-room and that in the rear the sleeping aimrtmen In the latter were two beds and a cradle. On the bed in one corner was the body of a girl the eldest child; in the other, which was on the opposite side of the room, wero the remains of the mother and a boy aged seven; while in the cra dle, in the center of the room, wero two girls one three and a half years and the other three months old. The children were ready to be placed In coffins, having been washed, and had clean underclothing put on them. Thei hands were crossed on their breasts. The baby bad Rn artificial flower in one hand, while a wreath lay beside the oldest girl. Pieces of red ribbon were affixed to the gar ments of all. How long the three youngest children had been dead no one knows. Whan their father, Casper Seybold, returned home the mother and eldest daughter were alive. He is a Journey man baker, and works for James B. Campbell. His hours of duty are from three p. m. to four a. m., and ho usually left home at two in the afternoon and got back about five In the morning. When he knocked on the door at the customary hour yesterday it was opened by his wife, who had on a new chemiso trimmed with lace and blue ribbon. She threw her arms around his neck and said: "Look what 1 have done. , I am sorry for it. but it is too late now. Forgive me. The children are oil dead, and 1 am going to die, too. Seybold, completely horrified, staggered Into the bed room, where he saw the corpses of the three little ones Toney, Annie and Agnes. His wife again asked him to forgive hor. He said he would not; that, if there was a God in Heaven. He wouldn't, because she was so wicked as to poison the children. Seybold noticed that the oldest daughter was still alive, and, as his wife lay down on the bed and began to groan, he ran out for a physician. Seeing a grocery-keeper named Louis Martin, who was standing in front of his store on the opposite side of the street, he shouted to him: "For God's sake, go to the house, she has poisoned the whole family." Martin hurried over, and going to the bedroom found Mrs. Seybold conscious, but in great agony. She said she thought tho poison would put her to sleep, but ft gave her tho cramps, and she was Buffering so that she asked him to get an ax and kill her. She and the oldest girl and boy were In one bed, and Martin took the girl out and put her into the other bed. She was in great pain and couldn't speak. In a few mo ments Dr. Moo arrived. A glance at the bodies told him that strychnine had been adminis tered, and an examination of the mother and girl satisfied him that they could not live. Presently Drs. Moore and Lackner came in, and they, too, said death was Inevitable. The girl expired first, and the mother breathed until after eight o'clock. The confession of Mrs.Sey bold explained the cause of death, but the motive which prompted her to murder the children and commit suicide is not clearly understood. She had been sick since the birth of her last child, and, as is not at all uncommon, her mind may havo been af fected by her illness. Her husband is a steady man, seldom drinking heavily, and their do mestic life was not marked by many quarrels. Tbey bad had disputes, and, according to one neighbor, he had slapped her face. Wednes day Mra. Soy bold was washing, and dinner wasn't ready when Seybold wanted it, This pro voked him, and he " jawed" her some, and she threw a discloth at him. Neither spoke to the other afterwards until yesterday morning. He left home at two o'clock Friday afternoon. His wife started out an hour or so later and Trent to a drug store to procure some strych nine. Having gotten the drug she went, home, and, judging from some notes written by the oldest daughter, must have taken this child into her confidence. How she ad ministered tho poison can only bo conjectured. She may have put If into food or water. The three youngest child ren, of course, soon died. The eldest, how ever, spent some time In writing to her papa and playmates, and exhibited surprising resig nation. Her name was Matilda and her ago twelve. She attended tho Moseley School and tood very high in her class. The longest note, which is addressed to Mary Murphy, a little playmate who lives on the first floor of No. 51 Finnell street, was as follows: " I will tell you the story of our trouble. My mother was always sick, you know, and thought of dying often, and thought, if she was dead, how we wouid be treated, and bo thought it host for all of us to dio at once, and bought something to kill us. The babe first, Anna second, Toney third, I after, and then my mother. We do not suffer much, and now we are all out of trouble. No pain nor sorrow must we bear. Remember me to the family. Good-by. Please tell Rosio Morris take back that book I've brought home from school. It is not mine. It Is the history of the United States. Take it Room 5 to George Ca proni. It is on the lower shelf of tho closet." Two other notes read as follows : "This Is for Mary and Nellie Murphy, my dear playmates. I wish you a better and far happier time than I havo had. Good-by." "Mary Mitrpiiy: Please tell Lizzie Murphy, Minnie Orton and Lizzie Reynolds that I have forgotten their dispute and forgive them. I guess they will feel sorry lor it. May they think of me as their friend. "TILIjIE 8BVB01iD-' The following were for her father: " Dear Papa: Forgive us. We will have to part from you. Mamma said It was the beat that could be done. We are going into a bet ter hind, where we will all live in peace to gether. Farewell. Thy daughter. " Matilda." " Dear Papa : Buy Toney a flower and An na one also from this money. Some in a box. It is what I have saved. The knife in the box is yours." "DkarPapa: Please let ub be burled decent ly in Wunder'a burying-ground, so that we shall all be together. That Is all we wish of you." Seybold dldn'tsee these notes until they were found by Lieutenant Shay and a Tribune re porter while searching for poison. Three were in English and three in German. When be heard them read the tears came, and he was beside himself, shouting: "Oh, Mary, Mary, why did you do it?" When asked by the reporter for an explanation of his wife's action he said he couldn't give any. They hud been married a little over twelve years, and lived happily as a general thing, having a " fuss " only once In a while. There was al ways enough to eat in the house. Hia wife, however, whose parents were well off, wanted to be rich, and he was not able to make more than a scanty living. She had been aick, too, for several months. Seybold is a Bavarian, and his wife was a Swiss. She was thirty-five years old and he is forty-three. The reputations ot both were very good In the neighborhood, and everybody who knew Mrs. Seybold was astounded when they learned of what she had done, and at tributed her conduct, to insanity, for they had noticed that she acted strangely at times, though no one imagined then that her mind was affected. Coroner Mataon held an inquest on the flvo bodies in the afternoon, and the jury took the charitable view of the tragedy. "Chicago is talking of extending a call to Moody and Sankey.

With the death of Guiseppe Garibaldi disappears a heroic figure which has long filled a place of unchallenged pre eminence in the affections of his coun trymen. He deserved their love and admiration, for he was not only a high minded and single-hearted patriot, otil a successful lib 'rat or, and what Mazz'mi planned he, more than any other sou of Italy, carried into triumphant execution. To find a parallel to the influence ex ercised by Garibaldi's personality in the shaping of events we must look not to Kossuth or Bolivar or any leading spirit of the French revolution, for the move ments with which those men were asso ciated had acquired an impetus to which the contributions of individuals seemed relatively insignificant. But Garibaldi may be said to have revived the tradi tions of Italian valor, and in the victory he won over great odds in 1849 under the walls of Rome be taught his coun trymen a lesson of self-respect and self-oontidence which was never after ward forgotten. When Garibaldi, with a vastly inferior force, routed a French army, he wiped out the contumely of four centuries, reversed the triumphs of Charles VIII., and con vinced the world that Italy was at last worthy to be free. Nor is it doubtful to those who appreciate the difficulties of Cavour's position in 1860 that Italy owes her unity to the famous expedition of the One Thousand against Sicily, a feat of arras whose equal must be sought in the exploits of the Vikings or of the Norman adventurers who conquered the same islam! eight centuries before. There are few finer things in history than Garibaldi's willing resignation of a dictatorship which he had won by his sword, in order that the historic king dom of the Two Sicilies, after an age long severance, might be merged in a united Italy. And even his two unsuc cessful attempts to recover Rome in 1862 and 1867 served to fortify his countrymen in the resolve not to rest until the Holy City had become the Italian capital. Garibaldi was something more and larger than a patriot. His sympathies were not bounded by a single race or . . I, . . , country, tie was animated oy a norue passion of emancipation, and proclaimed himself a citizen and soldier of every land struggling to be free. Before he was forty years of age he had twice nearly lost his life fighting for the inde pendence of Uruguay, and at tbe age of sixty-three he offered his sword to France in the hour of her death grap ple with Germany. In Hungary, in Poland, in Servia. in Spain, in every part of Europe where men have striven to throw off the galling yoke of despot ism. Garibaldi's example was a beacon, and his name was the watchword of revolution. Of all contemporary great men who have been associated with the uprising for freedom, not one has had a stronger hold on the public heart, and not one has rendered more brilliant and substantial services to the progress of humanity.
