Tan ner, who became famous some years ago by fastinc: forty days in Claren don hall, New York city, arrived in Chicago yesterday from New Mexico. He is apparently in perfect health, and his girth is such as to suggest any thing except abstinence from food. About the last words from the doctor previous to his arrival here was, that he was in New Mexico living upon a pure vegetable diet. At present he eats two meals a day in summer and one meal a day in winter. In an in terview he said he had been in Mexico for two years pursuing investigations into the subject of suspended anima or counterfeit death. He is convinced that large numbers of people are an nually buried alive all over the world and from his study of various cases and the records of societies on the sub ject in Holland and elsewhere he con vinced that so subtle is the principle of life that no one can undertake to say that it is extinct until decomposi tion, the only sure sign, has set in. He declares the dead in this country are buried with indecent and criminal haste, and that burials of persons who are not absolutely dead are murders. The doctor is also pursuing another branch of semi-suspended animation, viz: hibernation. He declares bears and other other hibernating animals do no not use their lungs during the hibernating season, and he is convinc ed that man can hibernate. He re fers to the long trances of Hindoo adepts, accomplished through long seasons of fasting, and declared it to his belief that these trances are merely seasons of hibernation. The doctor says he is studying with the view to making some experiments in this line, and that the time may come when he will permit himself to be scaled up in an air-tight coffin and laid away until such time as he shall designate for it to be opened. Thrown Under a Train. Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 16. A horrible murder was committed at Heiskell's Station, six miles north of this city, this morninc;.

Archie Kimbro, a brakeman on the train, made an insulting remark to tritts, which led to further words be tween them. Just as the train moved away Kimbro, who is a muscular giant, grappled with Fritts and threw him under the wheels, where ne was directly ground to pieces, Kircbro jumped on the moving train and es caped. Percy IVnvigrn tea tho Whirlpool Baplds Rochester, N. Y., Sebt. 16 A special to the Herald from suspension bridge says: Charles A. Percy, the whirlpool rapids navigator of this place, who has been preparing for the past week to take a trip through the rapids, started from the old Maid of the Mist landing at 4:35 p. m. to-day. When he struck the rapids near Man ning's elevator his boat capsized, but righted below Cuttery's elevator. He was twenty-one minutes going through. No damage was done to the boat. The woman who had intended to go through with him backed out. Railway Agent Shot Down. Coleman, Sept. 16. Last night about 10 o'clock a man by the name of Will Atley shot and killed O. H. Harris, railroad agent. Harris had driven the man away from the depot for using indecent language, as there were ladies in the waiting room. At ley soon 'returned with a Winchester rifle, and as Harris stepped to the door he fired, the ball entering his body just below the left ribs, from the effects of which ke died at 12:50 to day. Atley is at large. Wire Covering for Cotton. Jackson, Tenn., Sept. 16. A J. McGee, a young lawyer in this city, has obtained a patent on a wire cov ering for wrapping cotton, which it is believed will solve the question of wrapping for all future time. He is preparing to give wire cloth a thor ough test, and believes it can be made nearly as cheap as jute bagging at the old figures and serve for two or more crops. The inventor is receiving en couraging letters from the cotton ex changes at St. Louis, New Orleans and Memphis.

The presbytery of eastern Texas met here and was opened with a sermon by the Rev. W. K. Marshall, D. D., Isaiah Iv, io-ii. The first Presbyterian church in Texas was organized at this place the 2d of June, 1838. This pres bytery has not met in San Augustine for thirty-six years. Rev. C. C.

Michael Kennedy and his wife went across the river on a fishing expedition. They went to a point near the Indianapolis and St. Louis railroad in the southern section of East St. Louis. During the eve ning hoodlums came upon the Kene- dys, beat the husband and drove him away and then assaulted the woman. After relieving her of $7 in money and a gold watch, each of the party out raged her and left her in a terrible condition. m Overrun by John Chinaman. San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 16. The United States dispatch boat Dol phin, which arrived from Honolulu to day, brings news that the Chinese of Honolulu recently held a mass meet ing to protest against the action of the Hawaiian Legislature in passing laws tending to prevent Chinese from transacting business on the island. It is stated that the Chinese raised a fund to advance their interests and intimated by threats that they would compel the Hawaiian government to accede to their demands. There are more Chinese males on the island than are males of all other nations, including the natives. Nobody in this country desires or talks about any breach of peaceable relations growing out of these ques tions, much less do we consider them a cause for immediate or ulti mate hostilities with Canada or Great Britian. We simplv demand what is obviously just and fair, and if we do not get it we propose to treat Canada I as we arc treated. Simply that and OR. - lepp.o nothing more, and on that point the government and the people are united regardless of any consideration of domestic politics. New York Times, Ind.
