The, road was in a wretched condition, and the trains consequently. were run at a phenomenally. Jow, , rato . oC speed. When tho conductor was punching fiis ticket, , Artomus j remarked "Does this railroad company , allow passengers to give it advice, if they do s6 in a respectful manner?" The conductor .replied in gruff tones that he guess so. ("Well," Artemus went on, "It occurred to me it would be well to detach the cow-catclier from the front "of the' engine and hitch it to the rear of the train. For you bcq we are not liable to overtake a cowj but what'-) to prevent a cow strolling into this car and biting a passenger?" :. ' - s -": Lire in Xtxissian Jails The Alleged Suffering: of Nihil ists in- the St. Peters burg: Prison. ' Two letters from prisoners confin ed in the jail bf Peter and - Paul at St Petersburg were published a few days ago'iri London, and caused a prefound sensation.' The contents of the first was sent briefly by cable to the United btates. lhe second document, of great length, though written throughout with the' prison er's blood,' has just been communi cated by one of the most prominent and influential Nihilist leaders. The letter is a description of the prison life endured by the Nihilist con demned to hard labor and confined in the" Troubetskef bastion. , It is headed " by a quotation' from St. Luke, chapter lV.t verse 12. The writer commences by expatiating erf the horror of the cell, its damp walls; the little iron table, the bed, 'consisting1 of a sack of straw." and a rug, "as thin as paper," the foetid atmosphere, the narrow little win dow,' choked up'j with dust and dirt, the loul pail on one side, the jug ol bad water on the other. And worse than all, there are no books, no pa per -there is absolutely nothing to do: nothing to relieve the complete solitude and silence. In vain the prisoner lends for the inspector, t - . - - i i wno, in repiy lo.nis appeal, nanus him a copy of. the prison rules. These, however, bear no , signature, an obscure copyist alono. testifies to their authenticity, and there is no mention of the .decree, nor of its date, by which the regulations were established. The inspectr states that tne present regime nas Deen in force for the last six years, and the third section (secret police) were held responsible lor the actual state of affairs." At tho same time the prisoner maintains that no ' one is sent to this bastion except at the express command of the Czar, and that the condition ot its inmates is well known at court. Tho ill-treatment which he proceeds to describe he attributes to feelings ot personal hatred against the Nihilist chiefs. PRISON DISEASES. .. . A lengthT account is then giyen of the prison diet, which is often meuldy, sometimes in a state ol purification and never sufficient. Dysentery and scurvy soon ensue, j reducing the strongest to a state of tho greatest prostration. -But there is no differenceof treatment in favor of the sick. Of the two doctors at tached to the prison the youngest alone enters the cells, but he is afraid to touch the patients, he dare not feel their pulses, and the few medicaments he ventures to pre scribe : aro usually' countermanded by the senior surgeon, lo the com plaints of the prisoners he generally answers that there is no- remedy possible. .Even those who become mad un der the stress of this fearful suffer ing and solitude are not treated any better. They are strapped down and beaten with the knout. All night their fierce yells resound through the prison, and their num ber dailv increasing, as is also that of the suicides. The writer cannot give all the names, but he mentions Issaiev as ' having completely lost his reason, and Mme. Terentiva, who died in a mysterious manner. It is said that she was outraged and then poisoned, so as to hide the crime, the doctor certifying that the chemist gave the poison by mistake; but no inquiry has been instituted or blame inflicted, i; - . Another lady is now dying of phthisic, contracted in this prison. borne ot the prisoners are- kept in underground cells, where a. ray: of sunlight, never enters, where onen sive water oozes through the walls and funua grows on all sides. Here lived.' Kiviatkovski, Priessniakov and , . Suchanov. before ; .they , . were hung. . In these dungeons the rats are the worse enemies, and yet it is in one of these cells : that Madame Jakimova and her infant child are now confined, t Day and night, this lady has to watch and fight. There is little .or nothing that she can eat, vet she. has to feed her child, and, in. spite , of all,, she' ; has not lost courage. :ii .i ALLTdED TREATMENT OF THE ' "' ! DEMXED.'.', ' cox Thatreatment ia arranged so as to. emasculate, the ; prisoners. The body is soon bent and deprived ol its strengthj the face puffed out, the limb3 tremble, and the eyes enectcd by the gloom and the . atmosphere, aro so diseased that they cab hardly bo opened. The; prisoners being deprived of soap,: their : bodies .are soon covered with lavera . ot dirt Combs aro also forbidden, and it is fortunate that the males are shaved But as tho women retain itheir hair for years without it being eoinbed or brushed, it often, becomes matted and painfuL, The men suffer in this respect with theirboards, wbicli are not cut on, nor are tney even allow ed to cut their nails. The only cood thing about .the prison is the clothes oi iue prisoners x neso ; were ; se lected fifty years ' ago for ordinary criminals and are well suited to re sist the damp and cold. . The. hope that such suffering may '"be of use w tne cause atone enables. vne( pris oners to keep heart . ' The writer, feels convinced that his persecutors dare not despise the, prisoners. "Ibis he says;"we leei even in the depth of pur prison, n th is wo, clearly ' perceiv: w he n . . we, meet people of the administration.". For this very reason the higher of ficials avoid the'prisonenTas much as possible, the inspector sees inem. rarely and the Governor of, the fortress never. . Thus they are left to" the mercy of ; the soldiers, and gaolers', who, are ; only .kind tjO , un convicted '.prisoners, . from, 'jioni money caii be obtainedr.They never speak to those who' afe feentebced; and refuse even to mention the day or date." Sometimes, in s the night, tho Procurator Mouravieff" enters a cell to question a prisoner and we tothe victim who refuses, to sell himself to the Government. Torture in some form is sure to await , a re calcitrant witness, but the tempta tion to obtain some relaxation of prison discipline, though so great, rarely succeeds in producing revelations-. The exercise is taken in a yard protected, by, five, walls, the prisoners walking in Indian file, with . gaolers -. in . front' and ; gen d'armes behind. If a prisoner chance to look in any particular . direction, a gen d'arme will at once search to seo if he can find anything. The cells are also minutely examined, and the dust and dirt turned over, not to be carried away, but for fear something might bo concealed un derneath. To cough very loud or to strike the walls of tho cell is to be denied the pleasure of exercise. THE" SUFFERING OP WOMEN. "Towards the end of this very lengthy letter, of which the above is only a summary, the writer makes a special appeal to the civilized world on behalfof thewomen, whose situation is far worse than, that of the men: The gaolers 'are depicted as showing no scruples. Under the pretext ot searching ' the ' women, they often cause them to be depriv ed of clothes in the 'presence 'of a bevy of gen d'armes, and this "has Deen done even at - seasons when such exposure was especially ' pain tul to them. '1 bough the gaolers are forbidden , to enter any cell unaccom panied by gen d'armes cases of violation are not rare. Hysteria is, of course, a common occurrence among the women, and becomes a pretext lor much violence and ill treatment. Anything to reduce paio, sometime even a glas3 of wa ter, is refused to those who are ill, and tho only way the prisoners can resent such treatment is by refusing the rood.' ibis is sometimes oone individually, by groups; and even by all the prisoners simultaneously. But the' only result is that of hasten ing the death of tho weaker prison ers, who. however, generally prefer death to madness, ror five years these rovolto have occured at differ ent intervals, but the rigor of the prison rules has not been relaxed. J hough condemned , to hard labor, the prisoners have absolutely nothing to do, and are driven mad by their solitude. ..Even, tho Bible is denied tbem." SUPREME COUKT OF TEN- ; . v LESSEE. TWO IMPORTAXf DECI3IOXS. Nashville," February 9. Mr. Justice Cooper, of tho Supreme Court, in the case of Cooke Conat zer vs. the State, held as follows: A juror upon a trial for murder stated that he had formed an opinion from rumor, and to the direct question by the Court added that he could divest himself of the opinion, and from the evidence do equal and im partial justice between the State and tho prisoner. He further said to counsel for the defendant that he had heard persons eay the prisoner had killed the deceased with a hoe on tho road at road-working,'that he did not know whether those per sons were witnesses or not ; whether they had heard the evidence or not; that he had the same opinion still, and it was a fixed opinion from ru- Lor: and that'. it "would take evi? denoe favorable to the prisoner' to remove it, 1 but again said that he could disregard this opinion and re ly upon the evidence for his terdlct. Held that there being in fact no doubt that the prisoner did kill the deceased in the manner stated, that there was no error in the holding of the juror as competent. This de cision is said to overrule former de cisions on this point, and will r evo- lutionize the jury-system and' in crease the ability of the State to get intelligent juries. " v ' . - By Justice 7 Freeman: State vs. Fanst, 'indictment for carrying' a pistol : plea, that the party had been arrested and ' puhished by a justice of -the peace under the "email of fense law," and ' held by a circuit judge that the justice had no 'juris diction as imprisonment" was' im perative under the act of 1879. Held by this Court that the justice did have jurisdiction to try the case, and that the infliction' of imprison ment under tho act of 1879 was dis cretionary with the"circuit or crimi nal judge trying the case, and af firming Coffer vs. tho State, and Tarrent'vs. the State, under the small offense law, that if the offense merits imprisonment H is the'dnty of the justice to bind the party over to the court." '' '. j ,; "' ! '" '. ' A" $30,000 JERSEY COW. t' Atlanta ; Constitution. ' v.Capt. G. H; Yancey : arrived in Athens Friday afterj a"! short' trip through Canada, where h had gono to purchase some Jersey cattle1. He went to see and also ate Bomc butter from the ' world - renowned J ersey cow, 'Mary Ann Of Sty Lambert, " for rwhieh-an offer of $30,000 was refus ed, andl'"who would bring Oh the block! in New York $50,000: This cow" has yielded four pounds of but ter a day,' and for eight months past has ' averaged over ' three ' pounds.

The owner of the cow has the 'finest herd of Jer-" seys in "'the - world."; While Capt.1 Yancey was' at his iarm he refused anj offer bf $56,000 for fourteen1 cows and heifers and scouted the idea of thus sacrificing his cattle. . , . ... -' You should try the florae Sho- JBed Spring for comfort and durability," "f ' Viciriiiif1s3': Diary. Tlie long promised Work distri buted to the press; : .f Its contents. n London, r. February :- il. The Queen's new book was , distributed to the press this morning. , It con sists of a disconnected diary from August, 1862, to September ' 1882, with a long gap from October 1879, to tho final period covering? the period of the transition from the ad ministration of Beaconsfield to that of Gladstone. The entire book is de voted to domestic and family affairs, political allusions being only in cidental. The illustrations are nu merous and include portraits of the Queen and Princesses Elenpra and Louise and Beatrice, also portraits of Grant, the "Queen's body servant and one ot her attendants, John Brown. There are pictures, too, of the Queen's Collie dogs, Sharp and Noble, and several views of scenes in the Highlands,' from sketches; by the Princess Beatrice.' In the pre; faco the royal authoress says: " Ee membering the feelings with which Our Jjife in the Highlands ,was re ceived, the writer thinks the pre sent volume ' may equally evoke sympathy, as, : while describing a very ; altered life, it shows how her sad and suffering heart; .was soothed and cherished by the excur sions and incidents it recounts . as well as by the simple mountaineers from whom she learned many les sons of resignation and faith in the quiet of the beautiful Highlands."' After the dedication to the loyal Highlanders, and especially to the memory of her faithful -attendant and friend, John Brown, the diary opens with the : building , of , the memorial' cairn in. honor . ot the prince consort. It reads as follows' i We started off in a little pony chair led by Brown, Berte, 'Prince t. Wales,, in .front, Jbaeanor and Louise on ponies, and two little boys, Arthur and . Leopold. I actually drove in the little carriage to the very topot Craig Lowrigan; Grant and Duncan pushing the. carriage behind. . .Sweet baby. Beatrice wo found at tho top. - The view was so ue, the day so bright, tho heather so beautifully green, but no pleasure, no joy; all dead. Here at the top is the foundation of the cairn to be" erected to my, precious , Albert., jl and my poor six orphans all placed stones on it, and our initials are to be placed on the stones all round it.- ' -:. ' Several succeeding entries'in the diary mention other visits to the Prince s cairn, along with family re cords and remarks of domestics.
