Galveston, July 19. Galveston and Houston crossed willows to-day. It was the first of a series of four games under the new schedule, and was witnesse by an audience of about 700 people.

It is a com mon thlug to see a mother take the child from her breast and glvolt the pipe. A colored proncher near Macon, Ga., has committed to memory the entire bible. A few years ago ho was unable to read, nnd claims that lit knowledge has been revealed to hhn In a vision. In an article ou tho production of Bessemer steel In tho last issue of the Engineering nnd Mining Journal it is shown that the out-put per man la this country "is greater than that la England by more thau 60 per cent." A woman who died at Marseilles desired by her will that her heart might be placed in the tomb of her first husband, nnd hor body in the tomb of, her second husband. The question naturally arises, which hus band did she love tho better? It is not generally known that the late Emperor Frederick was nn au thor in a modest way. He published a book entitled, "My Journey to the Orient," in 1870, containing an ac count of what ho saw In Egypt on the opening of tho Suez canal. The Eighth Cavalry Roginient Is on Its way from Fort Concho, Tex., to Dakota, making the longest march a regiment 1ms made since tliovnr, the dlstanco being over 1600 miles. They make from sixteen to thirty-six miles a day, and expoi't to roach Dakota soon.

Mi. Villiers was one of tho mot conspicu ous leadors of The Anti-Corn Law League. Tho Episcopal churches which have long been landmarks in New York are presently to lie saoritled to-the inarch of improvement. Those are ' old St. Luke's" on Hudson street and "old St. John's" on Varick street. A handsome chapel is to take tho plnco ot tho former edifice, but tho site of the latter will bo occupied in all probability by an unsightly ware house. There are not wanting Indications of a turu of the tide in American ship building. The now steam tonnage registered in Juno was 10, J0S9 tons, against 13, 844 in Juno, 1807; sailing tonnugo, 73o2 tons, against 2017 In June, 1887. The gain in both classei is 8251 tons, aud is mainly due to the rapid growth of tho lake marine, al though the Paoiflo const'and tho Wes tern river fleets nro not far be hind. Mmo.

Millet during her life, and afterward to bo converted Into a museum of art, but tho landlord de manded SO600, while the Americans would give butl?l,000, so Mmo. Millet will have to go. t Ono of the lonurost strikos on record that of tho brickmakors at Haver- straw, has boonsottlod. It has lasted nearly two years. The original point at Issuo was the employment by the bosses of non-union nioti. The point appears to have been yielded by. the men, while the bosses, on their part havo taken back the union striker. It is said that during their lonir strike mo mon navo reoeiveu very little uld from tho Knights of Labor, to which organization they belonged. frank Peabodv. a mombor of tho Harvard graduate advisory board on rowing, says thut"the Yule crew this yenr was tho fastest for four miles, umaieur or proiessionni, Jimgllsn or American, that over sat in a boat." This iuuy bo lltorally true, but the famous Oxford crew of 1882 pulled, four miles and a ciuartor in 20 minute aud 12 seconds, which would make their time for four miles considerably under tho 20 mlnutos nnd 10 seconds record of the Yalo crow.
