Even Vinton conntv has a

by 13. P. Ware, of Marblehead,
Massachusetts, who considers

"Melt one pound of resin
gently( then add one ounce of
beef tallow; stir it well, take
it frGm the fire, cool off a little,
then mix with it one table
spoonful of spirits of turpen
tine, and add seven ounces of
alcohol, 95 per cent, proof ; this
will cool it down bo rapidly
that it will be necessary to put
it ever the fire again, stirring it
constantly, taking care that it
docs not inflame ; remove from
the fire as soon as the lump be
gins to melt again, and contin

mixed. It will appear like
strained honey. After setting
the scions, apply a thin coat

wax will soon harden, and it
is impervious to air and water."
A Fatal Quarrel.
Iu Harrison county, Indiana,
somo time ago, Joseph Himes had
been arrested and imprisoned for
killing some pigs belonging to
Stephen Aultraan, and has always
sinco threatened revenge. A few
days ago, he was heard to say that
ho would send Aultman's soul to
hell. On thursday he took hia rifle
and proceeded to a field where Ault
man and his family were at work,
and, without a word of warning,
shot him. in tho bowels, causing
death in a few minutes. As Ault
man fell he shouted to his son, a
young man of twenty, that Himes
had killed him. Himesj after he
shot him, jumpod over the fence,
and clubbing his rifle, struck tho
jdying man, literally "crushing tho
skull. At this moment Anltman
arrived with a hoe upon his shoul
der. Himes dealt him a savage
blow npon the head, fracturing his
skull. The boy fell to the ground
but hold fast to the hoe, and whilo
lying on tho ground apparantly in
convulsions, struck out wildly and
fiercely, hitting Himes - on tho top
of the head, and literally cleaving
his skull in twain. Himes foil dead
near tho boy's murdered father,
without ottering a word.
Certain Radical papers hav

The Cardiff Giant Hoax Exposed.
LETTER FROM MAN WHO CUT THE
The following letter appears
in the Chicago Tribune :
"To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune:
'Thafc statement made in the
Tribune about one week ago,
that the 'Cardiff" Giant' was
manufactured in Chicago, is
true. One of Mr. Yolk's
workmen and mysylf cat it out
of a block of gypsum, in a barn
near Lincoln Park, during the
months of July, August, Sep
tember'and October in 1868
George Hull, one of the former
owners of the figure, made an
arrangement with Henry Salle,
who is employed by Mr. Volk.
and myself, to cut out a statue,
and he agreed to pay us either
$150 or to allow us a share in
the money, deriving' from ex
hibiting it after being dug from
the earth.' We concluded to
take the cash, but he has never
aid usi Salle received 40,
ut I did not get one penny.
As Hull has hot carried out his
part of the agreement, I do not
think it rirrht for me to remain
quiet any longer, but think the
swindle should be exposed.
"When Hull came to us he
aid he had a block of gypsum
which he said he had obtained
from Fort Dotlge, Iowa, and
that it was in a barn near the
park. Salle and myself took
our tools to the place and work
ed at it whenever we had an
opportunity ; sometimes two
days in a week and on bun-
days. We had a model about
three feet long; Beer was sup
plied, and there was no neces
sity lor leaving the place while
at work-for a drink. The stone,
was informed, was famished
by a man named Martin, who
at present interested in the
giant. It was about 11 feet iu
length, 4 feet wide by three
thick, and worked nicely; did
not crumble as some stone does.
The figure wa3 pronounced
completed in the latter part of
October. Hull came occasion
ally to see how the work pro
gressed Hair had been carv
ed on the head and a beard on
the chin. Hull did not like
this when he saw it, and said
he would see about it. When
he came the next time, he told
that he had consulted with
geologist, and was informed
that hair would not petrify; So
he ordered it to be clipped off,
and we shaved the giant.
"Several ways were tried to
make the figure look old, and
at last one was invented. Quite
number of needles were placed
lead, with their points pro
truding, and tho figured was
pricked over with this. Two
da3's were occupied iu this
work, as the chisel left marks
on the stone which had to be
effaced by this slow process of
pricking, borne vitnolj sul
phuric acid and English ink
were next procured and rubbed,
which gave the antirluateiUook
required. Hull thought at
first it would be best to put on
clay coverings but concluded
had better not bo done, as
the clay where the statue was
be burried might be different.
He was undecided where to
bury it at first, and suggested
Mexico. I told him I thought
that would be a good place,
but finally concluded not to
take it there, as the distance
was so great.
"A box was obtained of a
man who makes sashes and
doors on North Clark street,
just south of the entrance to
the old city cemetery, llow to
get the figure into the box puz
zled Hull, but we hit upon a
Slan which was successful. A
errick was erected, bands were
placed beneath the head, legs
and body, and when raised to a
sufficient elevation, the box
was shoved underneath, and the
giant was in it in a few mo
"During thd CojirsA t iie
next weRif , ' -l
vv iruck wa3 engaged,
and the box taken to the JUicn
igaa depot, It, went oyer that
road, so I was told, and was
buried, how, or by whom I do
not know, on Newell's farm.
"Hull at one time proposed
that wo should insert in the
figure here and there petrified
pieces of wood or stone, so that
when geologists called to see it
ho could clip off a piece and
give it to them to examine.
This, however, was not lonr no
he could not find the nieces.
nuiu is wen propor
tioned in all parts except rnr
and that is the back. The stone
was made up of layers, and
while working on the back one
of them got loose and had to bo
taken off, leavinirthe tliiolcnpca
of the body six inches less th. in
it should have been.-
"Hull was in Chicago about
two weeks ago, and told me
that he had sold his interest,
and had received notes there
for. Salle and I wrote to Mar
tin about it, and ho replied
that Newell, another interested
party, had the notes and had
run away with thera. Wo
wrote to Hull and asked him
why he had deceived us, aud
have not yet received an an--swer
"The beam3 of which wo
made the den ick are now iu
the yard near the barn, and tho
bands are in my possession.
"If Hull, oi- tho parties now
in possession of the giant, deny
the truth of what I say, Sallo
and myself are willing to mako
cjhiuuviu uiai me iucis given
are true. Affidavits of other;
persons who are familiar with
the circumstances connected
with the making, will also be
procured, and theginnt proven
to be what it isj as every intel
ligent person knows a hum
