They used 110 drills, and finished the job in 10 days. Superintendent Walker has sexjt to Congress a report of the 10th Census of the United States and Territories. His report gives Lou isiana 1,648,708 souls. A German watchmaker of Little Rock became crazed from religious excitement, took to the woods, tore his clothes from his body, and went up into a tree. After being over come by cold he was captured and put in jail for safe-keeping. Constable Lubback, of Houston, has arrested and identified a man as one Fitzgunda, who murdered T. S. Grayson and two other men near Sherman, seven years ago, by chopping their heads open with an axe. A man calling himself Sloan, handsome and apparently well-to do and professing to be a îetail dealer in jewelry at Monroe, Wis., stepped into a wholesale house in Chicago to buy a S200 stock. While examining and pricing goods he permitted $100 worth of jewelry to crawl up his sleeve. The clerk happened to observe the maneuvers of the watch chains, etc., and rang for a policeman, who promptly responded and led the "retail dealer" to the nearest station to await the action of the law. Somebody has figured out that au increase of five cents per bushel in the cost o! carry ing grain between Chicago and New York, a matter depending on the will of two or three men, is eqnivalent to a tax of $45,000, 000 upon the agricultural pro ducts of the West.
