Gbeece has slipped out of the trouble
in which it was likely to get itself by re

powers.
The principal commercial languages of

The Canadian customs authorities have
seized an American fishing vessel in the

Millions of human beings have each year,
for nearly twenty centuries, passed
through it. Roman chariots and other
ancient vehicles have left their autographs
scraped and scratched into the lining
stones and modern wagons and carriages
still rub their hubs against it, leaving
traces for generations to come.
At the funeral of the late King of
Hpain an imposing and curious scene oc
curred, which, it seems, is a custom pe
culiar to that country. When the pro
cession reached the monastery connented
with the Ecurial Palace, the Duke de Hex
lo, the Royal Chamberlain,knocked and
requested aemittance for Alfonso. When
inside the gates, the Duke unlocked the
coffin and called three times in Alfonso’s
ear. Then, according to the ritual, he
said: “There is no reply. It is true, the
King is dead!” He then relocked the
coffin and broke his wand of office.
A California paper relates that on a
farm near Knelling, in Merced county,
there is a well 168 feet deep in solid rock,
which constantly sends up a large volume
of air. When a rain-storm or a strong
wind is impending the volume of escaping
air increases so as to roar audibly. Ih*
well cover is furnished with a vent. By
closing this for a few moments the con
lined air recovers sufficient force, when
liberated, to make a noise like the escap
mg Steam of a locomotive. The well tur
nishes an abundance of excelland water.
A recent study of comparative heights
and weights among different classes of
population in Great Britan shows that the
criminal class average no less than forty
live pounds in weight and four and a
half inches in height less than their an
tagonists, the Metropolitan police. U
pared with the general population, too,
this class is seen to be eighteen pounds in
weight and two inches in statute below
the average, standing on about the same
plane in physical endowments as lunatics.
In nci|uiring Barman, England has got
possession of vast forests to leak, which,
min i plentiful in India, was becoming
iniercially very rare. Of all the wood
grown in the East this is the most vain
able. It is neither too heavy nor too j
hard. It does not warp or split under ex
posure to heal or dampness; it contains
an essential oil which prevents its as rot
ling under wet. condit ions, and at the same
time acts as a preservative to iron and
repels the destructive white ants; it is,
withal a handsome wood, of several vani
ties of color and grain, and takes a good
polish.

Tuk statement is current that the six
companies have entered into a contract
to deliver 000,000 Chinese in the Pacific
ports of Mexico, and, if there Is any truth
in the news, such an immigration of Coles
lials will lie apt to have a serious effect on
the furniture of our next door neighbor.
The Mexican government has always en
couraged Chinese immigration, and upon
occasion has held out tempting induce
ments to the Mongolians, but it may be
doubted whether the Mexican statesmen
contemplated the possibility ol trails
for of a whole province from Asia to
America. If they did, and this movement
originates with (hem or is permitted by
them, the outcome of an immigration ex
periment on a gigantic scale will be of
interest to the statesmen and philosophers
of every land.
It frequently happens that chimneys j
are now built round, without corners to '
retard the draught. This is done by in
setting iu the chimney, as the building
progresses, cores consisting of iron pipes
cast in sections, or tile piping. Air
spaces art' thus left between the core of
the chimney and the outer wall, and of
course the air iu this space becomes
heated to a high temperature. It is quite
practical to utilize this air for heating
purposes, if this is found desiuable. Ihe
air spaces being closed at the top. and
openings being made to (he open air at
the base of the chimney, tin piping is
connected with the spaces for conductinn
the heat to different ports of the building.
Of course this method is not designed for
heating the stories nearest the ground, as
the current of air iu ascending has not
had sufficient exposure to become heated
until it has reached the third or fourth
story of the building.
Wii’.n a cameo cutter is ready for work
he draws on the white surface of the stone
with a lead pencil the desigh which he in
tends to produce iu the cameo. He then
follows the outlines with a diamond, and
cuts away the white parts outside. If the
stone is small he cements it on the end
of a stick; if largo, he holds it in his
hand, and proceeds to work upon it with
fine drills. He sits at a table like a sew
iug machine table, and by a treadle works
a small lathe situated at his right. At his
left is a frame filled with drills made' of
steel wire and of all varieties and shapes.
The ends of the drills are covered with
diamond dust ground in olive oil. The
dust is obtained by crushing uncut dia
monds by blows of a hammer in a small
steel mortar. The cutter has placed be
fore him a picture or a model of the sub
ject to be made. Everything then dedends
upon the correctness of his eye and his
artistic instincts. The work is inexpres
sibly slow, but when completed it is mar
velously perfect.

Condition of the Winter Wheat Crop.
The Department of Agricultural reports
that tlie official statistical investigation
for April makes a reduction of the winter
wheat area of ;!.500.000 acres from the
bredfh seeded two years ago. and A per
cent, reduction from the area seeded a
year ago. On the Atlantic Coast (here
has been slight reduction, and none on
tin! Pacific Coast. The largest decrease
is in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri. Com
parative areas seeded in principal States
are: New York, it"; Pennsyluania. !)8;
Ohio, it!); Kentucky, 5)5; Michigan, iti);
Indian, !).">; Illinois, 85; Missouri, !)2;
Kansas, 84; California, !>!)' Oregon, 103.
In comparison with the bredth harvested
last year there is an increase. A moder
ate degree of protection by snow has been
enjoyed, though the covering has been
neither heavy nor continuous. Winds
have laid bare exposed surfaces and cov
ered valleys deeper. Winter-killing in
patches is therefore reported to some ex
tent, while it is generally found that
brown and apparently lifeless plants have
roots uninjured.
The general average of condition is
it- 1 against 7ti last year the lowese ever
reported and !)4 two years ago. The
average of 1883 was 80. and that of 1881
was 88. Condition of States is as follows;
New York,iB; Pennsylvahia.itit; (thio.itl;
Michigan. !)3; Indiana, 96; Illinois, 86;
Missouri, i)4; Kansas, 88; California, 100.
The condition of the soil for autumn
seeding was favorable in four-fifths of all
counties. The exceptions are more fre
quently in districts of small production.
Damage to wheat by the Hessian fly in
indicated in about one county in twenty
in the winter wheat. Its presence is
deemed worthy of mention in sixteen
counties of Indiana and eight of Illinois.
In Ohio, Indiana and Michigan and also
Pennsylvania and New' York it is re
spectively reported in four to six coun
ties.
The Kind of License He Wanted.
Buffalo Courier
The following story is told of a well
know gentleman of this city, who recent
ly married a belle from a neighboring
Pennsylvania city after his case had been
given up as hopeless by all the managing
mammas of Buffalo. It seems that the
gentleman in question regarded his abne
gation of bachelorhood with a sort of rue
fid misgiving, which increased as the
days of las liberty waned.
His last revolt against the shackles of
matrimoney occurred when he was sent to
procure the marriage license, a few days
before the ceremony. He sought the city
official who presided over the license de
partment and asked gravely:
“Is this where licenses are kept ?"
"Yes. sir," answered the clerk, politely;
"what kind of a license do you want, my
friend?”
"Well, what kind have you got?" re
joined our friend with superhuman grav
ity.
The clerk had begun to look upon his
visitant as a lunitic. but he obligingly
rattled off his list;
"Give you a license to drive a hack, give
you a license to pull teeth or practice
medicine, give you a pawnbroker's or
huckster's license, give a license to keep
gunpowder in the house —”
"Stop." said our friend quietly: "that's
what I want."

Mose Schaumburg was as mad as a
moist hen one day last week. .In a voice
that quivered with rage he said to his
clerk. Ike Silverstone:
"Sit down dat desk at and write a letter

Write 1 have written to you. who has
not answered dot ledder? Jake Oppen
heimer. Who had I dunned dime and

“I have dot down."
"Den conclude: ‘Who vas a tarn scoun
drel;' Have yon got dat down? - '
‘"I have dot down.”
• Den give dot letter to me so I puts my
name to it."
The clerk did so, and hence the conclu
sion of Mote's letter read; "Who vas a
fam scoundrel ? Mose Schaumburg."

FltKSlt FASHION NOTES.
Sashes of black aud watered silk rib
bon are worn with dark wool, velvet and
velveteen dresses. They are placed at
the left side of the back, and the ends
reach nearly to the bottom of the dress.
Elegant sunshades are of glace silk,
shot of two shades of color—blue and
garnet-red, pale blue and cerise green
and crimson, blue and gold, seal brown
and blue, and so on —with pretty handles
of carved olive or orange wood.
Bonnets are made of light, coarse
straw, loosely plaited with fine strips of
velvet of all colors, or else of plaited
rushes, with binds of gold, white, or col
ored beads. There are also cabotes, with
crowns forming a network of black, gar
net or other beads.
A mourning novelty is a fine English
crape with applique figures in tine bom
bazine of drab d'ete with black silk em
broidery. It is cut out between the fig
ures and leaves a semi-transparent fabric
of great effectiveness. It comes in full
width gords for wraps, and in several
widtns of flouncing for edgings and
trimmings.
Long pins, with heads ornamented
with jewels and pearls, are still some of
the principal adornments of the coiffure.
There are others of light colored torise
shell, forming combs, which are exceed
ingly pretty, but rather expensive. They
are put on obliquely, with perhaps a bow
of velvet at the side, for dinner or even
ing coiffure.
The long, arm-concealing glove is still
as fashionable as ever, always of unglazed
kid —light for the evening, dark for the
morning. The glazed kid glove, how
ever, may be worn in the daytime for
walking or visiting. The silk glove or,
better still, the unglazed kid glove, with
an embroidered open-work cuff, will be
adopted with light summer toilets.
The newest models of summer mantles
are the casavue and the very short man
telet-visite. tight-fitting in the back, with
the sleeves taken from the back and los
ing themselves in the puff: very often
there is a tight sleeve comining out from
under the wide open one: long lapels in
front, the whole more than ever loaded
with embroidery beads and passemterie.
Greece and Turkey
Brooklj and Daily Eagle.
There appears to be now no doubt of
the determination of the powers to com
pel Greece to disarm, it was time that
the farce which ha-* for some time been
played in the waters of the .Egean Sea
and about the Turkish frontier was
brought to an end. The interview-* which
were published with the Greek Prime
Minister. Xlr. Deiyannis. and with hi? pre
decessor in office, Mr. Tricoupis. did not
afford much encouragement to those who
had hoped for a pejyefnl solution of ex
isting difficulties. The Premier was a?
uncompromising in his attitude as it was
possible for a man to be. and he claimed
that his country, having been unjustly de
frauded of her rights under the Treaty of
Berlin, will not be satisfied. The Berlin
Congress voted Greece a certain frontier,
which they recommended to both coun
tries. and the treaty also provided that,
in case Turkey and Greece could not
come to a satisfactory conclusion on the
subject- the great should under
take the task. Turkey and Greece were
nnable to come to any agreement, al
though they discus~ed the question very
fully in and 1'79. Then the Greeks
invoked the aid of the great powers, and
they were represented at Berlin in 1880
by delegates who traced the line of fron
tier which Greece now claims. Greece ac
cepted this frontier, but Turkey made no
reply, and after the matter had again
been brought to the attention of the
Turkish Government by the powers, Tur
key refused it. Then the sis great pow
ers suggested a more southerly" frontier to
Greece, which the latter excepted, but re
served her rights. Now they demand the
| frontier originally agreed ' on. on the
ground that Greece needs a strategic
frontier, which she now does not posess.
So the case stood. The difficulties of this
question are greatly increased by the fact
that the territory claimed by Greece is
| inhabited by both Greeks and Turks and
that the latter would be haoled over to a
Christian and unfriendly power. The
territorial lines indicated' have no rela
tion to race or religion, but have been
drawn in a purely arbitrary manner.

TO HETI RN TO CHIN \.
Cheng Tsao .In Takes Ills Ollicial heave of the
President.
Washington, April 28. Chang Tsao Ju,
the retiring Chinese minister, accompa
nied by Secretary Bayard, called at the
white house to-day and took official leave
of the president. In presenting his letter
of recall he said:
Mb. Pbesident I desire to express my
sincere thanks especially for the unvary
ing kindness and courtesy which I and the
members of my legation have received
from your excellency and the high officers
of the United States government residing
here. These tokens of good will have
given me much pleasure, because of
my conviction that they were given
to me as the representative of the
emperor and the government of China
and that they indicate a desire to main
tain the ties of friendship existing be
tween China and the United States. This
feeling is most honestly reciprocated by
the government of Chinn, mu) now in
taking my final leave permit me, Mr.
President, to offer to you my sincere
wishes for your health and happiness, and
for most abundant prosperity of (he
great people over whom you preside.”
The President replied: "Mr. Minister,
it is always a source of regret
when kindly official and personal relations
which have grown up between this govern
ment and representatives of a friendly
sovereign are turned into a new' channel
by his retirement. Hut the regret I feel in
receiving from your hands the imperial
edict, summoning you buck to China and
bidding you farewell is made deeper by
recollection of your high personal qual
ities and unvarying spirit of courtesy and
good will, which you have infused into
the relations between your mis
sion and this government. A vast
distance separates China from the
United States, together with remarkable
diversities in language, laws, customs,
and traditions of the two governments
and their people have, not unnaturally
made it more than usually difficult to cre
ate and maintain at all times that clear,
mutual good understanding so essential
in international intercourse, and no one
more than yourself has recognized the
fact or sought more faithfully to over
come difficulties which have grown out of
race jealousies, competitions and rivalries
of labor. I recognize and thank you for
your earnest endeavors to create that good
feeling between your country and my own,
which I trust will continue to bear its
good fruits to both nationalities. When
you return to your own shores accompan
ied by the most cordial respect and sym
pathy of those who have known yon. dur
ing your stay with us. I beg you will as
sure your sovereign, and cause your fellow
countrymen to know, that I and my con
stitutional advisers truly represent the
great body of our countrymen, in profess
ing the most cordial and friendly senti
ments toward China, and desire to con
duct our commercial interchanges to mu
tually satisfactory and beneficial ends.”
THE TELEPHONE IXVESTIGATIOX.
Testimony of Forbes, President of the Bell
Company.
Washington, April 28. —Wm. R. Forbes,
president of the Bell telephone company,
was examined by the telephone investi
gating committee, to-day. The witness
did not know that any officer of the gov
ernment or member of congress had been
connected with the original companies,
or had stock at the present time in the
National. The Bell Co.’s stock lists
showed Mr. Kanney's name as stockholder.
That was several years ago, and he was no
longer a stockholder. Sec’y Manning,
who had stock in the Troy company,
was the only government officer he knew
of who held local stock. No newspapers
own stock in the company.
Mr. Ranney inquired if any member of
congress represented his company as at
torney.
The witness replied that Patrick Collins
had been retained several years ago to
look after certain matters, and had been
consulted several times since.
The examination was then directed by
Chairman Boyle toward the interview the
witness had with the president. The wit
ness said the understanding was that the
government
PROPOSED TO B UNO ST IT
against the Bell company. He thought it
proper to state to the president the facts
a* he understood them. He thought the
president was proposing to take an un
usual course to bring the suit. The Bell
lawyers had expressed their opinion, and
there was no authority for such a suit.
Then it had been proposed to bring suit
in a remote part of the country. He went
on to say that he had presented to the
president a plain statement of the ques
tion of jurisdiction: he had pointed out to
him that the suit about to dime up in the
-upreme court would be decided before
the government suit could be heard.
He had pointed out to the president that
it was the manifest inter tion of the Pan-
Electric associates to secure delay, not
to get the Bell patents tried, but to leave
them untried, and he thought that the
government ought not to lend its name
to a scheme of that sort. He showed that
the pendency of the government suit
w,,ald be used to effect the proceedings
in other court*—that they would be a*ked
to grant a-tay in injunction proceedings
during
A LONG AND TEDIOUS LITIGATION
in the tame of the govermnt. I explain

know what the government name was to
be used for. exclaimed the witness. He
had held that the Bell company should
! uot be subjected to a long and tedious lit
igation and it would insist that it could
\ aot be seed outside of Massachusetts.
iie had asked that the scope of imjuirv
! should be very carefully considered be*
fore the government entered into such
plans as the one proposed. "I saw an at
tempt was being made to influence per
sons associated with the administration
to use the name of the government
against us and the president did uot ap
pear to understand the justice or injus
tice of the proceedings.
I hairmau Did you discuss the conduct
of the attorney general, or make any al
lusion to it ?
Witness Simply to state that an at
tempt was beig made to use a govern
meat officer near the administration in
the interest of one of the parties to the
suit, and that a great deal would be
gained if they were allowed to have no
voice in the suit.
To-morrow it is expected that Drof.
Bell will be put upon the stand.
HANGED HV a Mill!.
lorrihle Eateufa Mix,mil Wife Murderer.
Sckinokiklo. Mo.. April I>S. At 1:30
o'clock this morning a mob of four hun
dred armed men surrounded the county
jail and began parley ing with the sheriff
for the surrender of George K. Graham,
a wife murderer. The sheriff would not
comply with their demands and thev soon
battered the doors in and secured the pris
oner. At two o'clock the mob started
out of town on Bonneville street with
Graham in their midst.
"ben they unlocked Graham's cell, he
said. "You can hang me. but b\ God. you
can't scare me." They tied his* hands‘be
hind hint and marched him through tlie
hall with a rope around his neck. He I
was ns white as a sheet but never flinched.
He recovered his composure mid replied
with his old audacity, that when he got
out. he would give them "straight talk."
He was led out of the jail at the end of
Ibe rope, placed in a wagon mid the pro
cession moved in a northerly direction.
A crowd of spectators, numbering about
titty. began following, but were halted
and
WARNED NOT TO DO so.
ami only a few of the most venturesome
did so, keeping in the shadow of the
fences and trees. About two miles north
of the city they halted by a small scrub
oak tree. Pickets were thrown out to
keep all curious followers at. a distance,
ami preparations for hanging were hnr
riedly made. Graham was asked if he
had anything further to say in regard to
the killing of his wife. Exactly what his
reply was is not known. A cloth was tied
oyer his face, his hands bound behind
him, and as the rope was thrown over the
limb of the stunted tree, a dozen strong
arms dangled the body of Hit* wife mur
derer in mid air. He literally strangled
to death.
A notice was pinned to the body saying;
A\ e recognize the fact that our criminal
statutes are not equal to all occasions,
therefore, we have resolved to remove
from our midst the worst criminal who
ever infested our country, that we might
thereafter, and forever live and be without
his presence and vicious influence. AVe
heartily welcome all strangers to citizen
ship who are worthy of it. To sheriff
O'Donnell keep your month shut if
you recognize any of us or you will die
the death of n dug.

Possibility of a Serious Unt break in the Ohio
Senate.
Columbus, ()., April 28. The future is
fraught with danger of a serious outbreak
in the senate when the select
committee makes its report on
the rotteness; of Cincinnati poli
tics. The democrats will insist that
the four democratic senators were honest
ly elected. The republicans will insist
otherwise. Gov. Kennedy will rale that
none of the four senators can vote on any
question pertaining to their contest. This
would give the republicans 17 votes against
Hi, and decide the case very quickly But
the democratic report will make a sever
ance of (ho four cases and report on each
senator, so that three of the four from
Hamilton county will be able to retain
their fourth colleague and so on until all
have been declared seated. On account of
Goa*. Kennedy’s firmness the democratic
senators propose to instruct the sergeant
at-arms to oust him from the chair, and
he says he will only go out when dead.
Both sides threaten to resort to violence.

At the conclusion of the address, a letter
was read from Leopold Von Bauke, a
venerable historian of Berlin, in reply to
a letter from President Bancroft, asking
him to consent to become an honorary
member of the association. Mr. Von
Banke signified his grateful acceptance

great satisfaction to belong to n society
pursuing the same aims beyond the ocean
that they on the other side were striving
to achieve. After rending several inter

been for some time enjoying the hos
pitality of Freimuth. lie was homeless
and without friends, and they had taken
him in until he could find work. On (he
day mentioned, during the tem
porary absence of Freimuth, Unpin
overpowered his benefactor's wife,
and brutally outraged her person. Not
content with this he bound the lady hum!
and foot and cut her throat from eaar to
ear. The brute then secured an old rusty
hoe and while the women was yet with
ing in the death struggle he disembowel J
her with the blunt instrument.
Mrs. Freimuth was enceinte, and when dis
covered the unborn babe lay a few feet
from the body of the mother, cut in two.
Freimuth returned Sunday, and when he
discovered the mutilated body of his wife
he became a raving maniac. A neighbor
in that sparsely settled region happened
to be passing that way shortly after 12
o'clock and found him but dared not ap
proach for fear of his personal safety,
lie rode rapidly to the settlement, some
eight miles distant, and told the terrible
tale. A party was at once organized and

He had killed himself with a shotgun.
A grave was dug and the remains of
the unfortunate people were buried. The
posse then set out to scour the country
for the murderer, and found him
secreted in a small revene several
miles from the scene of his crime,
near the Cimarron river. Home specula
tion was indulged in as to the proper
method of ridding the. world of him, but
not much time was consumed in delib
erating. A fractions and spirited horse
was secured and saddled. One end of a
long lariat was then fastened around
his neck and the other was attached
to the pommel of the saddle. The
horse was then started, and amid the
shouting of men and the crack of revolv
ers and rifles, the frightened animal
tore away, and after a run of
nearly five miles, the beast fell
exhausted, and the lifeless body of
the murderer was loosened as soon as the
men came up. The lariat had been
drawn so tight that his head was almost
severed from his body. The features
showed he had died a terrible death. His
body was left lying on the prairie un
covered.
