Mrs. Johnson, whose home was in Kentucky, near the Tennessee bor der on the Jellico route, was assas sinated recently by parties who fir ed through the window from the outside. The tragedy was similar to the Mrs. Hunter murder near Rogersville Junction, in Greene county. The murderer is still at lare. At Zanfisville, Ohio, the afternoon of the 3d, a child red eighteen months, belonging to Theman Coul ton, a prominent merchant ef that city, foil from a second story win dow to the earth below, alighting on a brick pavement, and, strange to relate, when pickod up by an as tonished and frightened mother, who expected to find it dead, the child was unhurt save a few bruises. General Opdyeke, whose death occurred a few days ago, was one of the officers particularly esteemed by Thomas. Te him at Chickamauga, wheu they were fighting to keep the little flint-eovered hill the rock ef a most disastrous day Thomas said: Tkia rktint. mnct & held." aid Opdycko : " We'll hold it r go to heaven from it." And until night came they kept the rock, crowned with a circlet of fire. The malady of Joseph E. Murrcll, Jr., who was buried at Mebile, Ala., en the 5th, was the strangest known to science. He was subject to ter rible convulsions when asleep only. Hid father or some attendant was therefore always present at night to prevent his falling asleep, and the only rest obtained for a dozen years was tn a state of dozing. His suf ferings during the last years have been excessive, and the patient often wished for death as a relief. Graham Do well, a prominent col ored politician ef Springfield, Ohio, according to a press dispatch, sajs that the Democrats of Ohio will send a colored man as a delegate-at-largo to the National Democratic Convention. Peter II. Clark, a well known colored politician of Cincin- a. nati, will probably be the lucky man. Chosen as a delegate, Clark would be likely to prove a powerful leader among the colored men in Ohio, it U thought. Mary Clemmer, in one of her let ters to the Independent, gives this woman's opinion of Blaine: "When a man accused of having amassed a fortune by political jobbery puts on his armor and writes a book, a single edition of which will bring him over $200,000, he does a great thing. Whatever his follies or his sins, this man has earned a right to declare : "Say what you will of my gains in the past, you must own of this, my harvest of to-day, 'I earn ed It by my brains. It it mine, be- I cause once, at least, I set my pow- M tn tKA:r crs to their highest use. from them their f nest service." Rov. T. DeWilt Talmage, D. D., the great preacher of the Brookljn Tabernacle, is to deliver the Bacca laureate Sermon before the TJniver sity of Tennessee, Knoxville, a Staub'a Opera Heuse, Sunday night June 8th. Dr. Talmage ia probably the most famous pulpit attraction in the United Stales, and the authori tie of the University will not be able bv manr thousands te aceom- - . modate the immense congregation which will flock t the Opera House on that occasion. Mercury and Observer: "The fastest time for 100 miles or over made in this country up to 1884 was made by the Grand Trunk railway of Canada, where they made the run of 109 miles in 113 minutes. This time has never bean equaled . . a a.t A A l or beat until tne 1-un oi Apni, when the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad made the run with a special train carrying the members of the Historical Soeiety frem Knoxville to Chattanooga, a distance of 112 miles, in 110 min utes. This stands to-day the tastest time on record, and likely to remain so for some time to come. The im pression prevails in the North that the Southern railroads are much in ferior in physical condition to Nor thern lines The majority of the Southern railroads are all laid with steel rails and stone ballast, as evi denced by the East Tennessee, Vir ginia and Georgia railroad." A poultry exchange has this to say about testing eggs for hatching: Fertile eggs, or eggs that will pro duce chickens, can be distinguished in from five to seven days after the hen begins to sit on them. If held against a strong light the germ may bo seen in a dark spot, and the ex amination may be relied upon. If no dark spot is visible at the end of seven days, the egg is sterile and may be removed. When examina tion shows the shell full and dark the chick is within a day or two of hatching, and if the little bird is alive the car will readily detect the movemetts within the shell. Eggs for hatching should be selected with awa a care, ine largest are not always the best. Choose the medium sized and those that taper sharply to the small end. Carefully examined against a strong light eggs may be selected which in nine cases out of ten will hatch. Eleven months ago the social sen sation of New Orleans was tho bril liant wedding at the Cathedral of the beautiful daughter of Chiet-Jus- tice Bermudez, of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, to Henry Far- aa . J .aaa . gas, a lieutenant ot artillery in tne army of France. The ceremony was porformed by the late Arch bishop Percho. The groom was young aad handsome and the bride of noblo ancestry, the acknowledged queen of Creole society. After the wedding the unhappy couple left for New York, and then for Europe. The sad sequel comes in a report from Paris, that Lieutenant Fargas, because of the attentions shown by the colonel of his regiment to .his wife, had killed him, and, after sending by cable a message to tho family of his wife to come and get their daughter, fled the country to avoid the penalty of his crime. Mrs. Bermudez has gone to Europe to bring home her unhappy child. The New York Sun confirms, as to Conkling, the Harper's Weeily statement that both Grant and Conkling aro unfriendly to Arthur. The Sun says : "In these days Mr. Conkling speaks of tho president as that man.'" What a wonderful whirligig 1 The nomination of Ar thur, as vico president, was laid at the feet of Conkling to placate him, as one would fling a bone at an ill conditioned dog. No one . wanted Arthur, 6ave to placate Conkling. Arthur gave no strength to the tick et, save as-he pleased Conkling. But now he, for whom Arthur was made, calls him "that man," and he has been heard to call him "that stalled ox." How the soul of the American Curtius, Guiteau, who threw himself into tho chasm to re unite the Republican party by re moving Garfield, must be rasped when he sees that instead of unit, ing the two Republican factions, his act has resulted in splitting the then alienated faction! - A Mr. J. F. Hartley has been civinir some figures illustrative of Sunday school progress in the Sun day School Chronicle. According to this well informed writer there are in Groat Britain and Ireland C74.704 Sunday school teachers, and of scholars (not including Reman Catholic schools, ' regarding which, it ii. stated, inftrmation could not easily bo obtained), there are over six millions. In the United States, which U held to represent fifty mil. lions of people, it is ostimated that there are about a million of teachers and nearly seven millions of schol- ars. The calculation is that in the United Kingdom the proportion of teachers to scholars is about one in nine, and that in America it is about one in seven. One of the inferences is that so long as Sunday school teaching is what it is, and so long as tho tendency is so strong in favor of the Sunday school, it is vain to talk of the danger of board or pub licsehool instruction. The schools need not be irreligious, but the churches are quite able to take caro of religion. There was exhibited recently in Baltimore, accordine; to tho Sun of that city, a photograph represent ing the seven brothers of the Elder family, descendants of William El der, of Lancashire, England, who settled in 1720 in Frederick county, Md., where he acquired considerable property, on a part of which Mount St. Mary's Collego at Emmittsburg was subsequently built. These sev en brothers, whose ages range frem sixty-two to. seventy-six years and upward, met all together for the first time in fifty years at Cincin nati in December last, on the occa sion of the installation of Bishop Elder of Mississippi, the youngest but one of the brothers, and now in his sixty-fifth year, as Archbishop of Cincinnati. The photograph commemorative of that event, and of the reunion of all the brothers after tho lapse of a half century, represents the Archbishop Elder seated, as the central figure, in his robes and pallium, and on each side three of his brothers, the seven be ing now residents of five States of the Union. The only brother re maining in Maryland is Mr. Francis W. Elder, the oldest member of the family, formerly a merchant of Bal timore, but now occupying a posi tion in no of the city departments. The recent marriage at Darm stadt, writes tho London correspon dent of the New York Tribune, has started a erop f rumors, the most important of which is an unconfirm ed report that the Grand Duke Lou is IV. of Hesse is about to contract a morganatic marriage. Louis IV. is forty-seven years old; is the fath er of Princess Victoria who was married on the 30th inst. to Prince Louis of Battenburg, and has been a widower since the death of Prin cess Alice, the second daughter of Queen Victoria, in 1878. The ru mor is generally discredited in Lon don, where it is known that he has made a formal proposal for the band of Princess Beatrice, the Queen's only unmarried daughter. It is al so stated on good authority that this proposal has been accepted by the Queen and Princess Beatrice, sub ject to the passage by Parliament of tho bill legalizing marriages be tween widowers and their deceased wives' sisters. A strong color of probability is given to this statement by the fact that the Quoen's influ ence has been steadily exerted in this measure and that it has always received the votes of all tho royal princess in the House of Lords. A cablegram to the New York Herald dated Berlin, May 5, says that Louis IV. consummated his left-handed marriage with tho Countess Alex andrine Czapski, daughter of a Russian chamberlain, on April 30, after the ritual marriage of his daughter, the Princess Victoria, with Prince Louis of Battenburg. This morganatic marriage has caus ed the greatest excitement in the palaoo of the Crown Prince and in the castles of tho British royal fam- "y- ALMOST IiA 1SED FROM THE DEAD Thomas Johnson writes us that recent exposure gave him a terrible cold; the cold, a bad cough ; and tho cough gave him what his friends thought , to bo consumption. lie was induced to buy a bottle of Sym phyx, keeping his bowels open with Dr. Hart's Blood and Liver Pills.

The brilliant June number closes the fifteenth volume, and tho claim of this periodical to public appreci ation must, we think, be universally recognized. It is admirably con ducted by its talented and popular editor, T. DeWitt Talmage, D. D., who has in this number two most interesting articles' " The Resurrec tion" and "Hard on Others," and also a sermon, "The Sword Sheath ed in Flowers." ' There are articles (most of them beautifully illustrat ed) by Rer. George T. Rider, Alvan S. Southworth, G. A. Davis, AlfVe ton Hervey, J. Alex. Patten, etc., etc. Tho serial and short stories, sketches, etc., afford pleasant and edifying reading. Many excellent poems are contributed by Rev. G. A. Waddell, Amanda E. Dennis aod others; and -' miscellaneous' articles are entertaining and instructive, and the illustrations are profuse' and in the best stylo of art. The price is 23 cents a number, or $2 50 a year, postpaid. Mrs. Frank Leslie, pub. lisher, 53, .55 and 57 Park Place, New York. . . f HOW MARGIE WAS TEMPTED "Catherine," said Mrs. Lee, as she came out of the pantry with a bowl of raisins in her hand, "I think w had better make some fruit-cake to day." Margie was standing at the table near tho window. She pricked up her ears at this. Fruit-cake, such as lier mother made, was ner ae light. "Oh ! goody !" she exclaimed. "It is a very small piece yeu will have at best, child," said the moth er ; "tins is to be 'company cate. I saw Ave were about out when 1 was down in the cellar." Margie's face fell. "Company cake" was a name siven to it by Will and herself. Living in tho country, as they did, it was always necessary to be prepared for sudden and unexpected guests, and it seem ed to the children as if the best of "mother's cooking" was always put aside, to be served only at a time when, as they had been taught, it was shockingly rude to ask for a second piece. , Her face grew much longer when her mother, giving her tho bowl of raisins, Cold her to stono them as quickly as she could. She would have refused if she had dared, but Mrs. Lee's children were brought up in the old-fashioned way, to do as they were told without a word. "How mean it is," she thought, "to have to pick over these raisins when I hate it, and never to have more than one little piece f cake 1 Oh, I wish I might one have a lit tle loaf all for myself. I think mother might give mo ene. She wont; she never will. I wish I was grown up. What fun I should have!" And here she fell to thinking so deeply she quite forgot about the raisins, until aroused by a sharp tap on the head from her mother, who told her to hurry and not waste time in dreaming. She worked rapidly after that, and had them ready for her mother, then stood a moment before run ning out to her play to watch the batter poured into the pans and the whole put into the oven. As the last pan was going in she ventured to ask : "Could I have a little loaf for my self mother?" "No, indeed,", said Mrs. Lee, briskly, as sho closed tho oven-deer with a bang. "I don't want you eating such rich stuff. I will make you a little loaf of sponge-cake, if you want one." But Margie did not care for the sponge-cake, and, for the present, the subject was dismissed. Next day, she went down in the cellar for au apple. While she was there, she suddenly thought of the cake baked the day before. "I wonder how it looks," she said to herself. "I think I will take a peep at it." It was such a little step from where she stood to the crocks where tho cake was kept. Only one step. She took it, and peeped in at the cake. How nice it looked I Before she had time to think, her hand went in. It did not come out empty, as her mouth could testify soon after, -if it had not been too full to speak. Then she was so frightened at what she had done, she ran up stairs and into the garden as fast as she eould. There she spent five minutes in hating herself and wish ing she had never done it She would not g into the cellar again for ever so long no, not until the "company" came and ate the dread ful cake. But, alas! for her resolutions, in about au hour her mother sent her into the cellar for . something she wanted. Margie noticed the cloth which had covered the cake was not put on as smoothly as when she first went down. It had to be lifted off and put on anew. When she came up stairs, there wero crumbs on her frock. Mrs. Lee was too busy to notice them. "How long it took you, child 1" she 6aid, as Margie handed her the desired article, and, not waiting to bo questioned, ran out of the kitch en. . . , . . j . .l : 'After that, she went to the cellar every day. It seemed as if the cake had bewitched her; she could net keep it out of her mind. " . One day, her mother said : , "You must not eat so many ap ples, you will be ill." , . Margie grew very red, but said nothing..',.; , 5, ,-5V: J:-.:i Once she thought it very greedy never to sbare the ,eake with Will, and carried lum'a piece to where he was sitting, under the apple-tree'.; "Whcro did you get it?" ho ask ed, after the first bite. . ; : T . . "Never mind," she said, but look d uncomfortable. : . u )i vH -; "I hope, Margie, you did not steal it?" ' - ...7,,, t Will looked very grave. , ask no questions,' a peor eflort at a This was just what he would net do, but put the cake on the seat be side him, and getting up, walked away without a word Margie knew that ho despised her, and she had too small an pin ion of herself at the time to force herself upon him. Besides, there was the piece of the cake. What could she do with it? She had no inclination just then to eat it Where eould she put it out of sight? At last, takinir it in her hand, sho stole softly to tho pig-pen, and that v. day the pig had an unusual ' feast for dinner. Will never alluded to the subject again, but Margie felt sure he thought of it whenever he ooked at her, and that, to her guil ty conscience, seemed ever often. Days went by. No company came, and the cake grew less and ess, until at last there was " but a small piece left Margie was a mis erable girl through those weeks, and began to look really ill. "I can't imagine what is the mat ter with the child," said her moth er, one evening. "fcue is so unlike herself" "O, I guess she is all right," said I her father, absently. Just then ho was deeply interest ed in a political article in tho eve ning paper a way with some men. At last the end came. One eve ning, as they wero all sitting at tea, Mr. Lee said to his wife : "Have you any fruit-cako in the bouse r i teel just like having a piece. "Why, yes," said Mrs. Lee. "I made a coujle of loaves two or three weeks ago, in case of company. Nobody has come, and you can have seme as well as not." " Margie wished the floor would open, and let her dawn into the cellar beneath. She turned first red, then pale, and pinched her hands under the table to help ebn- ceal. her agitation. " ' But this was not a circumstance to her feelings when Catherine came in, with a very long face, and the small corner of a loaf of cake on plate. Then her face grew red as fire, and she fixed her eyes on her plate, not daring to look up. There came a singing in her ears, and she hoped she was going to die. "Why, Catherine!'' exclaimed Mrs. Leo. "This is all there is, ma'am ev ery' bit, she said. Mrs. Lee looked around in speech less surprise. Her glance fell at last n Margie. One look was enough. "You can go up-stairs," she said. Margie did not wait to be told twice, but fled to her room. . She had a very unpleasant visit from her father before she went to bed that night. He said it was quite as painful to himself as to her, but she had her doubts upon the sub ject. At all events, she was quite grown up before she cared for fruit cake again. -Anna M.

"Would you," she went on, and there was a tremulous imprcssive ness in her voice that warned the young man that the star was going to leave her lines and spring some thing new on the house! "would you be willing to work and wait for me, as Rachel waited at the well, seven long years?", . - "Seven!! " he cried, in a burst of genuine' devotion "Seven! Aye, gladly! Yes and more!

A J Prss dispatch says the bank's eapital was $400,000, and its statement of September 22, 1883, showed a fur- plus of 5130,000 and undivided pro fits of 02, 345.

In the failure of Grant & I aiternoon tlie Ward was formally announced from the rostrum of the Stock Exchange". It was rumored in connection with this failure that there had been a defalcation of half a million of dol lars. This firm is composed t f f: U. S. Grant, J. D. Fish, U.S. Grant, Jr., and Ferdinand Ward. Their embarrassment is said to be due to the absence of one of the firm", who has not been in his place ef businees since Saturday. Gen. Grant said respecting the rumors, " I can net corroborate the reports current. We are nearly $500,000 short. Our safes aro locked, and until wo can find Ward, I can not say how we stand." Ward has probably gone the way his ducks went.

FREE MASONRY A ND THE POPE. PASTOR WHITE SAYS THE LA'TTER IS THE REPOSITORY OF THE WORLD'S SECRETS. . The Rev. J, J. White, pastor of the Fourth Street Methodist Prot estant Church, Williamsburg, says the New York Sun, preached on tho 4th about the Pope's letter against Free Masonry. "He has written," he said, "to all his BLshops asking them - to - appeal to tho Blessed Virgin for help in their fight against this order. Let mo appeal to her to come with mo to the deathbed, to every place where thero is a sufferer, yes, to come with me even to the grave, and look upon the work which Ma sonry performs for poor humanity. Let her come with me to tho Wid ows' and Orphans' Homeland then tell mo whether she of the kind heart will give help to her son Iieo to put down this great organization? "Let her come into ,the lodge room, aud then let her say whethor she will assist Leo'and his Bishops in disrupting the society which ia based on tbo Word of God, and which holds tenaciously , to the teachings of the Son. " No, the organization will not be put down. Leo dreads it because he fears that he is losing his hold on tho people, and that the power of holding tho secrets of the fami lies of the world is slipping from him. No secret is a secret to him. Through his priests and Bishops ho is the world's repository of 6ecrets. Freo Masonry is one of the forces at work to deprive him of the pow er based on tho possession of these secrets." ...
