The San Francisco Bulletin has the following: There has been nothing talked about in this city for some days but the mystery connected with the death of II. Benhayon. The newspapers have been loaded down with pages of testimony, taken before the Coroner’s jury, which have been greedily devoured by all those who have the time for such work. To the more busy part of the community the condensations which, while following steadily the narrative, present all the points in a clear and succinct shape, have been in the nature of a boon. The terrible story cannot be said to present American features. It reads like something that had happened in Paris or London. Many of the charac ters who figure in are not easily re cognizable as the products of our civilization. The sensation caused by the death of Benhayon depends on the light in which it is viewed in connec tion with a murder equally startling, committed some time ago. Ben hayon is the brother of Mrs. Bowers, for the murder of whom by poison J. Milton Bowers, her husband, is now under sentence of death. The motive for the atrocious deed was supposed to be a life insurance to the extent of about seventeen thousand dollars on Mrs Bowers’ life, made payable to the husband. The confession alleged to have been left, by Benhayon states that it was he and not the husband who poisoned his sister, and that his motive was to get the same insurance, which had been transferred to him. The first aspect of the case was a suicide brought about either by re morse or the loss of a memorandum book in which the evidence of his crime were noted, the agent used for hh- uusiruuuon oi mu utuug ivauiuu u* potassium. If this should be finally determined to be the true version of the case, Bowers, who was convicted on circumstantial evidence, will neces sarily be pardoned, and will receive the $17,000 for which his wife’s life was insured. But the theory of sui cide has been strongly doubted from the beginning. There is no legal evi dence that Sirs. Bowers ever trans ferred the policies on her life to her brother, Benhayon. The man ner in which the body was found sug gested the idea that death was not caused by himself. He appeared to have been carefully laid out. There was no disturbance observable in tho apartment. There is also a good deal of mystery connected with the hiring "of the room. Persons more or less incomprehensible appear at various stages of "the thrilling drama. Cyanide of potassium, a few days before the murder or suicide, wras obtained by one of those persons. On tho other hand, experts affirm that the confession of Benhayon is in his handwriting. If these conclusions should be established the theory of suicide would be greatly strengthened. But this class of testimony no longer holds the place in the courts for merlv accorded to it. Besides, his mother denies vehemently that the confession was in her son’s hand writing. , , , Whatever may be the solution of the tangled and bloody skein, it is quite clear that the curtain has been lifted on scenes, tragedies and actors of which tho public heretofore had little knowledge. If tho popular no tion should be realized, we have among us individuals quite as bad as tho Borgias, to whom human life is nothing when it stands in their way. A loose system of life insur rnce, in this case amounting, as al ready stated, to $17,000, is the thread by which the terrible narrative hangs, no matter from what point it is viewed. It is that pile of gold which, according to the verdict of tlio courts, induced Bowers to poison his wife. Again, in the suicide the ory, it is assigned as the cauBe which prompted Benhayon to i>oison his sister. It will finally fall to the condemned Bowers, if under the new revelations he should be given his JJfrty- It is quite evident, no mat ter whatever is the outcome, that something will have to be done to check these loose forms of life in surance which offer premiums for crimes of the most atrocious character. A LUCKY IIEAI,. The Jack Pot Happened to be Worth #33,000 and He Caught It With Fonr Aces-A utile Uanie or Cards. Major Edwards, a well-known edi tor and boomer of Fargo, Dakota, went down to Sioux Falls on business the other day, says a correspondent of the St. l’aul Globe. When his arrival became known Frank Pettigrew, the whilom Congressman, and Melville Grigsby, the South Dakota dictator, hunted him up, and in less than an hour the three were comfortably located in a splendidly upholstered oincem tnerearof the First National Bank, with their hats drawn dqwn over their eyes fighting like bulldogs over variegated jack pots. Grigsby and Pettigrew had the advantage in that they were fighting on their own heath, and fortune seemed inclined to give the Major a cold shoulder, but he stood his ground well and met his losses with the grit of a Spartan. All the afternoon and into the night the battle waged, growing hotter each hour, and the beautifully colored red and blue chips were gradually piling up under the chins of Pettigrew and Grigsby, while the Major had been compelled to lay several checks of good round proportions on the table to meet the “ stabs ” that his antagonists were making at him. The sweat was rolling down his face, there was an anxious look in his eyes, and he showed signs of nervousness. He was a heavy loser. It began to look as t hough he would have to walk back to Fargo. At last the cards were passed to him to deal, and shaking them together carelessly he laid them over on Grigsby’s side of the table tor him to cut. Grigsby didn’t cut. Slowly the Major dealt the cards until the hands were out. It costs a hundred dollar bill to stay and Grigsby raised it to $200. Edwards saw that and dropped his cheek for $500 more in the center of the table. Pettigrew and Grigsby looked curious, but they were in and had to meet the raise, which they did. “ Cards!” said Edwards. “ One!” said Pettigrew. “ One!” said Grigsby. Slowly the Major gave them their cards, and pulling five from the pack laid them down in front of him. “The devil, thought Grigsby. “ What a snap,” thought Pettigrew. The Major picked up his cards and glanced them over. Grigsby’s eyes snapped, for he had a queen full on jacks. Pettigrew’s eyes glistened, for he had four kings. The Major’s eyes had a sort of a sad, sorrowful expres sion. “I’ bet $1,000 that my hand is good,” said Pettigrew, showing up chips and checks to that amount. “ I’ll bet $2,000 that my hand is better,” said Grigsby, raising Petti grew’s bet. The Major laid his cards down on the table and said: “ Gentlemen, I’m broke. I’ve checked out to you the last cent I’ve got in the bank, but if either one of you wants to take a mortgage on my newspaper office for $10,000 I'll give it to you and bet that amount oi money that my hand wins the pot.” “One of his old time bluffs,” thought Grisby and Pettigrew', and the latter said, “ I’ll take the mortgage, Major, and advance you the inony and I’ll call the bet.” “I’ll do the same,” said Grisby, filling out a blank check for $10,000 and laying it on the center of the table. “ l reckon I've got you, lor nere are four kings,” said Pettigrew, tossing his cards down ahead of time. “The -!” ejaculated Grisby, crushing his queen full in his hand. “Hem!” said the Major; “it’s pretty tough, gentlemen, but I had to have ’em. Here are four aces. It’s funny how they stuck together that way.” lie raked in the pile and the game ended. Outside Frisby said to Pettigrew, “ Did you ever see such luck? ” l’ettigow replied, “ Luck 1 you seem to forget that ’twas his deal.” Wbnt She Heeds. Salt Lake Tribune: Mrs. Clara Belle McDonald, who shot at her father-in-law, McDonald, in the Bald win Hotel, has been a vicious crank from girlhood. She is one of the kind that never ought to have been born a woman. A man with her disposition gets his eyes blacked and his nose “ set up ” about once a week fora year or two, and the experience teaches him to bo decent. Had sho killed McDonald she would have got off on the plea of insanity. She is a “ little off,” but her insanity is of the kind that when it appears in a man a thorough licking will cure quicker than any de vice of the asylums. She ought to be put in a cabin and made to do her own cooking and washing for about a month. By that time sho would bo a comparatively decent woman.

I rank Kichardson writes to the Baltimore bun from Vienna, about brands Joseph and his horses, as fol lows: “All the royal family are fond of horseback exercises, and the Empress, when in England two or three years since, wan pronounced to be the best lady rider in Europe. It was her custom always to accompany the Emperor on his gallops though the great public parks of Vienna, but it is now a year or more since she has been on the back of a horse, having been positively interdicted such ex ercise by the learned doctor of Am sterdam who attends her. As she is 50 years old it is perhaps time she should give up such violent exercise as she made it.” l visited the stables of the Empe ror, which, with the court yards, cover I don’t know how many acres of ground, and saiv the spacious inclos ure where the Empress used to break in fractious steeds before riding them in public. A private dressing-room for her especial use is attached, with all conveniences, including mirrors all around for her to admire herself in her riding-habits, and a gallery for a band of music, which played while she displayed her skill and nerve amid the plaudits of the select few who were admitted to the exhibition. The stables are not more finely ap pointed than several I have seen be longing to private gentlemen in the United States, but were many times larger, and the stalls are immensely roomy. The Emperor owns more than three thousand horses, distrib uted through the stables attached to his various palaces in town and country. “In the Vienna stable there are now about 440 horses, attended by 200 stablemen and grooms and guarded by a regiment of infantry. The horses are all picked and all young. Over each stall is the name and pedigree of the horse and the year in which foaled, and I saw none that were over six. When they get past that age they are considered no longer fit for tlie Emperor’s use, but I could not discover whether they are sold or given away. Never less than eight horses are put to the great coaches on state occasions, nor less than four for the smaller carriages. To very few of the coaches is there a driver’s seat, as postillions in the most gorgeous and elaborate livery are put upon the horses. There are two sets of horses particularly which, if I may be permitted to borrow that favorite feminine expression, ‘were just too lovely for anything.’ “There were twenty milk-whites and twenty coal-blacks used for the occasions. The whites were white as white can be, and the blacks, twenty magnificent stallions, who carried their proud heads as high as any Em peror, were black as black could be. Such flowing manes, such tails, fairly trailing on the ground, and combed as fine as the liair of women, were a sight to behold. There were nearly one hundred horses in the stables, used only under the saddle, and upon whom no harness had ever been placed. It would be quite impossible that Francis Joseph or any other man could get much personal use out of the 3,000 horses, even if he demoted ids whole time to riding and drilling. But the entire stock has a chance to show what it is made of, for it is the custom of the Emperor upon all state occasions to provide the numerous staff which attends him and the Em press with coaches and horses. The stan win inciuue nunureus, iuiuu iwm female, of tlie blood royal and of the nobility, besides the military officers. “ The collection of carriages is not less interesting than the horses. The number here is about one hundred and fifty. There are a dozen or more grand coaches, blazoned all over, even to the wheels, axles and poles, with gold and gilt, and the pannels orna mented with painting. The ornamenta tion on the coach first made for Marie Theresa could not have cost less than $100,00t>. This coach is never used now. Standing by its side is the coach in which Napoleon Bonaparte and Marie Louise first rode as consorts, and not far away is the little coach of rich and artistic design, and which was drawn by goats, is there to re mind Francis Joseph of the drives which he enjoyed before he put on his trousers. There are several carriages which belonged to the Archduke Max imilian, the brother of the late Em peror, and also the saddle which he rode in Mexico before the Mexicans put cold lead into him. These are re garded as precious relics and no one is allowed to put his finger on them.” A Hlntsulur Event. Portland, Or., Oct. 20.—A singular event occurred her to-day. At noon, Mrs. T. B. Newman was buried at Salem, and at 9 o’clock this evening her daughter, Miss E. G. Newman was married to II. S. Butterfield, a well-known jeweler. The reason therefore was that the wedding day had been set some time since. Mrs. Newman on Sunday called her daugh ter to her bedside "and said to her: You must under no consideration postpone the wedding. It is my dying request that you, my darling daugh ter, bo married at the time set. I know that I will die within the next 24 hours and I solemnly charge you to obey me.” The daughter promised to obey and the mother died Monday evening. The funeral occurred to day at Salem and the wedding to night in this city. The relations in the city were present at the wedding. There was no supper and it was a sor rowful affair. Both Wives Hissed Him. The devotion of the Pittsylvania,Va., wife was fully dmonsirated recently on the conviction of a bigamist named Jackson Short, who was sentenced to the pententiarv for two years. Both of his wives were witnesses against him and when the verdict of the jury was announced, wife No. 1 stepjwd up to the prisoner’s box and kissed the convict affectionately. Straightwav wife No. 2 hurried forward and kissed the man in distress. The Court, jury and the people were all overwhelmed. THIS WASHINGTON dm. Red Headed Girl* and White Hone*. The red headed girls and white horse craze has hit Washington hard, and it is getting so red:lieaded girls don’t dare to venture upon the streets since it has got out that whenever you see a red-headed girl you will see a white horse. As a red-headed woman walks along the street she becomes aware of the excitement she is creating. Every man who sees her stops short and begins to look up and down for a white horse. Men who see her pass the window rush to the door to look for a white horse. If she goes into a store she can not but ob serve that the clerks slip to the win dow or door looking for a white horse, and she sees men, as she passes along the promenade, signaling each other and shouting back and forth. One of the prettiest young ladies in Washington, whose crown' of sunset hair has been her pride, went home crying the other afternoon and de clared she never, never would go on the street again till every idiot of a man was dead, who, just as soon as they saw her, began looking for a white horse. A young department clerk met a red-haired lady clerk in the same division and immediately ran to the window. “What are’you looking for?” she asked. “ For a white horse,” he replied. “ When 1 see a red-haired girl I al ways look for a white horse, and there he is.” “Indeed,” said the young lady Sweetly. “ And whenever I see a white horse I always lode for a fool.” Congressman Eeriah Wilkins, of Ohio, got himself heavily “ stuck ” for 25-cent cigars on what he thought was going to be a smart trick. He wagered a box of “rerlectos” cigars with a gentleman where he could take him on a street where he could see six heads of red hair, and that there would not be six white horses in sight. The bet was taken, and Beriah marched his friend in front of a store for the sale of human hair, and in the window were six lay heads adorned with red wigs. “ There,” said brother Wilkins, “ I’ll take the cigars.” The other gentleman began to wilt, when at that moment a funeral pro cession tured into Fourteenth street from New York Avenue, “ and among the horses were six white ones.” A man in Washington has a stand ing offer of $25 for the first proven case of seeing a red-headed girl and not seeing a white horse.—From a Wash ington Letter. Noddy iu Wyoming. A Boston woman wrote to the Mayor of a new town in Wyoming asking for information regarding the state of society in his town, as she contemplated going there for the bene fit of tiro health of her children. On receiving his reply she concluded to remain in Boston a while longer. The Mayor wrote: “ As for society, it is bang up. This is a mity morrel town, considering that there’s Gil saloons to a popula tion of 2,005. But every' saloon has a sine up sayin’: “All fitin’ must be done outside. No Killin’ Allowed in this Boom.” Only two men lias been killed since Monday, and to-morrow will be Wednesday. Cheating at gamb ling is punished iynchin,’ and every effort is being made to put tire town on a good morrel baysis. Ladies is universally respected, and I sell them beer at half price when they buy at my place. There is a grand sacred concert and free dance every Sunday night, and the preacher don't have ter stay ter home on account of the big rush at his bowling alley. Don’t hezzytate about cornin’ here on ac count of soweiety. This is a morrel town.” I'lie Evils of Oiiul|i. Some time since Bishop Huntington read a paper on “ Talkirfg as a Fine Art” to some school girls in Syracuse, New York, in which he strongly re buked tlie practice of scandal-monger ing. Tlie following is a paragraph from tlie addross, which is not one whit too severe on the evils of idlo gossip: “ I say to you, weighing my own words, that you would be less de praved, less savage, wvuM less dis grace your womanhood, would lie less a curse to your kind, agd if Cod is rigidly revealed to us in His word and His son, would less oftnd Him by going to see dogs fight >4 their kennels at Five Points or bulls jbre horses in Spam than by putting OB'your bonnet and gloves and going fijm house _ to house in your neighborhood assailing absent acquaintances/, dribbling calumny, sowing suspicion, planting and watering wretclieilticssj^Htabbing character and alienating friends by re lating to one the detraction that you ‘heard’ another bad spoken.. I believe that before the judgment seat of Christ a prize-fighting man will Btand no worse than the slanderously gossiping woman.” The Hoi emu Funeral Paee. Elko Independent: A ljei;eaved widow, who took the remains of her husband by the Central Pacific rail road to Ogden for interment, wrote to her friends that she was deeply touched by the respect shown to the late lamented by the railroad com pany running the train conveying his revered remains at a most solemn funeral pace. Poor woman! ft is to be hoped no one will deprive her of the consolation she thus derived from blissful ignorance of the fact that this “ solemn funeral pace ” is the regular every day, all the year round rate at which this company totes its passen gers, dead or alive. Luxuries. “ John,” said a farmer's wife, “ be fore wo start for home I think I’d ought to have that tooth pulled out. It’s ached the hull day.” “ I know, Mariar,” replied John, dubiously, “ but by the time we git that jug filled, an’ the plug of terbacker, we hain’t coin’ to nave much left to spend on luxuries.”—New York Sun. A HUSBAND’S TKOUBUKS. How « Harried Woman Docs to Sleep. There is an article going the rounds entitled “ How the girls go to sleep.” The manner in which they go to sleep, according to the article, can’t hold a candle to the way a married woman goes to sleep. Instead of thinking what she should have attended to before going to bed, she thinks oi it afterwards. While she is revolving these matters in her mind, and while snugly tucked up in bed, the old mail is scratching his legs in front of tho fire, and wonder ing how he will pay the next month’s rent. Suddenly she exclaims: “ James, did you lock the back door?” Which door?’ says James. “ The cellar door,” says she. “ No,” says James. “ Well, you had better go down and lock it, for I heard some one in the back yard last night.” Accordingly, James paddles down the stairs and locks the door. About the time James returns, and is going to bed, she remarks: “ Did you shut the stair door?” “ No,” said James. “ Well, if it is not shut, the cat will get up into the chamber.” “ Let her come up, then,” says James, illnaturedly. “My goodness, no!” returns his wife, “ she’d suck the baby’s breath.” Then James paddles down stairs again and steps on a tack, and closes the stair door, and curses the cat, and returns to the bed-room. Just as he begins to climb into his couch, his wife observes: “ I forgot to bring up some water. Suppose you bring some up in the big tin.” And so James, with a muttered curse, goes down into the dark kitchen, and falls over achair, and rasps all the tinware off the wall, in search of the “big” tin, and then jerks the stair door open and howls: “ Where in the duco are the matches?” She gives him minute directions where to find the matches, and adds that she’d rather go and get the water herself than have the whole neighborhood raised about it. After which James finds the matches, pro cures the water, and comes upstairs and plunges into bed. Presently his wife says: “James, let’s have an understand ing about money matters. Now, next week, I’ve got to pay-” “I don’t know what you’ll have to pay, and don’t care,” shouts James, as he lurches around and jams his face against the wall, “all I want is sleep.” “ That’sall very well for you,” snaps his wife, as she pulls the cover vi ciously; “you never think of the worry and trouble I have. And there is Araminta, who I believe is taking the measles.” “ Let her take ’em,” says James. Hereupon, she begins to cry softly, but about the time James is falling into a gentle doze, she punches him in the ribs with her elbow, and says: “ Did you hear that scandal about Mrs. Jones?” “ Where? says James, sleepily. “ Why, Mrs. Jones.” “Where?” inquires Janies. “ I declare,” says his wife, “you are getting more stupid every day. You know Mrs. Jones that lives at No 21? Well, day before yesterday, Susan Smith told Mrs. Thompson that Sain Barker had said that Mrs. Jones had-” Here she pauses and listens. James is snoring in profound slumber. With a snort of rage, she pulls all the cover off him, wraps up in them, and lies awake until 2 a. m., thinking how badly used she is. And that is the wav the married woman goes to sleep. —Ex. ___ A Missouri Snake Story. The following comes from Lathrop Mo., under date of October 21: About a month ago Mrs. Andrew Lettes, wife of a farmer living fourteen miles from here was out in the garden with her son. Two snakes were noticed fight ing and she told her sou to kill them. Taking the hoe, he mashed both of their heads, Mrs. Lettes intently watching him all the time. A week ago twins were born of her. The heads of both were flat and resembled a snake’s head, while their tongues were protruding continually. No at tempt has been made to clothe the monstrosities, and they have been kept in separate boxes. The moment they are put together they commence to fight and run out their tongues in the most disgusting manner. They are at this time alive and well, but the family has attempted to keep the facts frtjfp the newspapers. Orderly Buys. The simple matter of a boy’s being trained to be orderly may seem of very slight moment in determining the happiness of his future home, but at least every housewife with a care less husband will appreciate the im portance in practical living. A lad ac customed to have his sisters or the servants pick up whatever he chooses to leave about, will come some day to be a constant vexation to the tidy soul of his spouse, when he might almost as easily be taught to aid rather than destroy the neatness and order of his home. The mother who allows her son always to consider his own in terests, and never to feel that the com forts and wishes of those about him are his affair, is preparing a husband who will some day render miserable, through sheer thoughtlessness, any sensitive woman who links her destiny with his.—Ex. Only an Ironing Board. I» a good old Western Massachu setts town lives a doctor who lias burled four wives. When number four was a bride of a few days she went with her oldest stepdaughter into the attic to find at ironing board. Peeing a board that she thought would answer her purpose nicely, she was about to take it, when the daughter exclaimed: “ Oh, don’t take that, for that is what father uses to lay out his wives on.” _ Clothing, furnishing goods, blankets, quilts, hats, gloves, boots and shoes only aheap at Berg's. t TRAVELERS' GUIDE.
