A telegram from St. Peter, Minn., of Oct 32, states that Tom O'Connor committed a deadly assault upon (a nephew by marriage) a man named Vaughan, at his residence near Lake Washington, in Le Sueur county, O'Con nor called Vaughan out of his house and had some difficulty, when Vaughan threw O'Con nor down and held him until O'Connor prom ised, if he would lei him up, he would go home.

INCENDIARY FIRE. Several desuructive incendiary fires have lately occurred at Bethany, Brooke coun ty, West Virginia. Some desperate rascals have seemed determined to fire the town. On the early morning of Oct. 23, the Bethany college structure was set on fire. The building is one of the finest institutions of learning in the Southwest, being valued at $150,000. The fire broke out in the north wing of the building at 3 o'clock in the morning, and owing to the scar city of water and ineffective means for putting out fire6, the wing was totally destroyed, the blackened walls only being left standing. The wing contained the three society halb of the college, and the college library. The only property saved was five fine oil paintings, pre scnted to the societies by Mr. Keene Richards, of Kentucky, and were valued at $10,000 Some of them, however, were considerably damaged. The societies lost all their property, including the libraries. Not a book escaped the flames. The wing was valued at $80,000, on which was an insurance of $35,009. There is no doubt that it is the work of an incendi ary, as the building was fired in a remote part of the south wing, but which was fortunately extinguished before doing any damage. Sus picion pomta to a person who has been prowl ing around town for some time past. TERRIBLE TRADQEDY. At Bloomington, 111., Oct. 20, William Hogg one of the oldest and most respective citizens of that place but a most eccentric man, who has recently been unfortunate in badness, returning home at noon, shot his daughter Mary aged eighteen in the parlor, called his son Willie, aged twelve who was playing in the yard and fired a pistol shot through his head, then stepped into the woodshed, placed the weapon to his own head and fired. The ball lodged in his braia and he fell upon the floor, where he was soon found by the passers by in a pool of blood. Mary and her father are dead but the son, although severely wounded, is likely to recover. Hogg recently married his second wife. She went to Norwoll the morning of the tragedy and thus probably escaped a like fate. Later. The physicians say both the children are in a critical condition with little hope of recovery of either. Hogg died soon after the shooting, never becoming con-, scions. The coroner's jury rendered a verdict' in accordance with the facts. SITTING BULL'S INDIANS. The commissioner of Indian affairs a Washington, Oct 34, received a dispatch from Agent McGilllcuddy, at Red Cloud agency saying twenty Sitting Bull Indians are just in with a pass from Maj. Walsh (British officer at nearest point across the border) Many will come when the Missouri freezes. Do you want them fed? To this Commissioner Hayt re plied as follows: Require Sitting Bull's Indi ans to surrender their arms and ponies. Place thorn by themselves, under surveillance of the Police, and feed them. Further orders will be given shortly. (Signed) E. A. HAYT, Com missioner. The secretary desires me to say further that the Sitting Bull Indians return ing mus.t be looked upon virtually as prison ers or war. They musts rrender their arms and ponies. The idea must not be permitted to spread that they can simply come back and be fed. Every one ot them if fed must be made to earn his rat ions by work for the govern ment. Enforce this policy strictly and keep them well watched. A letter received from the same Indian agent reports the Sioux under his charge aro exceedingly anxious to enlist and "assist the great father'' in the war against the Utes.

Very few persons wlio have not looked into the matter are aware how the manufacture of candles has dwindled, especially in the United States. There is very little left of it, the large houses that once carried on the trade having, for the most part, either retired or been forced iuto bank ruptcy. Making candles used to be very profitable many firms have grown rich thereby. But of late years the de mand has fallen off everywhere, and is to-day rather lessening than increasing. Really, there is very little need of can dles now. They have selved their time they belong to a fading, if not faded, epoch. Kerosene has been fally as adverse as gas to candles, for kero sene goes and, is used everywhere. From all the far-interior towns and frontier villages the once-familiar can dle has disappeared, and kerosene has supplied its place. It is rare to see a candle anywhere in this country a candle has grown to be a symbol of ex treme conservatism. The BoomernngV This curious weapon, peeuli6r to1 tfiie native Australian, has often proved a puzzler to men of science. It is apiece of carved wood, nearly in the form of a crescent, from thirty to forty inches long, pointed on both ends, andthe cor ner quite sharp. The mode of rising is quite as singular as the weapon. Ask a black to throw it so as .to fall at his feet, and away it goes fall forty yards before him, skimming along the surface at three' or four feet from the ground, when it will suddenly rise in the air forty or sixty feet, describing a curve, and finally drop at the feet of the thrower. Daring its course it revolves with'great rapidity, as on a' pivot, with a whizzing noise. It is wonderful so barbarouB a people felionld have invent ed so singular a weapon, which sets laws of progression at defiance. It is very dangerous for a European to try to project it at any object, as it may re turn and strike himdelf In a native's hand it is a formidable weapon, striking without the projector being seen, Jike, the Irishman's gun, shooting round a corner equally as well as straightfor ward.

A MODERN LUCRETIA 110RGIA. SYRACUSE, N. Y., Oct. 26.—The evidence which is accumulating against Mrs. Francis Schroeder, who was recently arrested, charged with having poisoned Mrs. Barnard at Chatte nango, eight miles east of this city, makes her out a veritable Lucretia Borgia. Three bold murders are already laid at her door. After her arrest for the killing of her mother, Mrs. Bar nard, proofs of her knowledge and use of poi son shed new light on the death of Mrs. Louisa Pope, the prisoner's great aunt, who died sud denly and mysteriously at her house in 1876. The alleged motive was obtaining possession of Mrs. Pope's little fortune of about $1,(100 in bonds and mortgages. The authorities are. of the opinion that Francis will make confes sion that she killed her mother, and that she was urged to do so by her husband. Those wno are intimately acquainted with her character and^disposition are of the opinion that she will admit having poisoned her annt, now that traces of poison are found in her stomach. Yet Sch-oeder, her husband, it is understood, is disposed at the proper time to tell what ho knows of the poisoning, and it is not nnlikely that he maY endeavor to turn State's^ evidence to save himself. The inqnest in Miss Pope's case will be held next Tuesday. DISAGREED. Special Telegram to the Globe. BUFFALO, Wright Co., Oct. 24,10 P. M.—The jury in the Seig case disagreed.
