A Giant Skeleton.
George Arnold, 'a farm hand in
the employ of Franklin Boots, who
lives about fifteen miles west of this
city, made a discovery which has ex
cited wide-spread interest in this
country. The object of this inter
est is the skeleton of what once was
a man of gigantic proportions, which
was uncovered in a eravel pit on Mr
Boot's farm. The skeleton was
found in a sitting posture hicmg
the east, and ab jut six f-jt b.-u-.-ith
the surface. Some ol the bo.ies
were badly broken by :i caving ot
th'- btnk, but the skull and some- of
the larger hones were taken out in
tact, and from them may be easily
realized tile gigantic statue ot the
being to whom they once gave sup
port. A measurement of the skull
from front to rear, the rule passing
through the eye socket to the back
ot the head, shows it to have been
about sixteen inches, while the in
ferior maxillary was eight and one
half inches, showing that the brain
must have weighed tour and one
half to five pou nds. Careful meas
urements of the other bones establish
the fact that the man when alive was
not less than nine ieet in highth and
large in proportion. From the ap
pearence ot the teeth, which are
very large, aad do not show the
slightest sign of decay, although
wore down almost to the bones
ot the jaw, the man could not have
been less than 100 years old when
he died, and ot course he might have
heen much older. The bones ot the
lower jaw are very large and thick,
showing a strong muscular develope
ment in that organ which is far be
yond anything of the present day.
How long ago the body of this giant
was interred where it was unearthed,
or to what tribe or nation he belong
ed when he trod the earth in all the
majesty ot his strength it is impossi
ble to say, but it must have been
ages ago as all the indications show
that the soil where the remains was
discovered had not been disturbed
for many generations. Steps have
been taken to have casts made of the
bones and they will be placed either
in the state collection or some other
college musems. Shelbyville Intl.
Deming, N. M Oct. 3. D. II.
Lerov and George Wilson left here
on the 19th of September for the
purpose of rescuing Charley McCo
mas from the Apaches, and returned
to-day. Arriving at Casa Granda
they tound Chief Ju had been killed
on the 21st bv falling from his horse
while drunk, into the Casa Granada
Georonomico succeeds him as
chief. Lerov and Wilson had much
trouble in gaining an interview, ow
ing to the unsettled condition ot af
fairs m ignoring Ju's sons in the
succession, and the fact that the
Mexican soldiers were trying to get
the Indians drunk, presumably with
the view ot massacremg them. The
ambassadors finally secured an in
terview and offered Georonomico
100 bolts of calico and 200 cartridges
for the boy. The chirf said the boy
was with Ju's widow in the moun
tains and she would not want to give
mm up, but he (Georonomico)
would compel her to release the
child upon payment of the ransom.
At this juncture the Mexican sol
diers appeared and the chief broke
off the interview. Lerov and Wi!on
were unable to see him again and
returned unsuccessful. Further
steps, however, will be piomptly
taken for the fescue of the child.
Georonomico claims to have 150
warriors and there are about 600
Mexican troops in the vicinity. Le
rov and Wilson are well-known cit
izens of Demning and their state
ments are reliable.

Jefferson City Tribune.
From a jjentleman who is well in- !
formed on the subject, we learn that j
the death of Colonel George Knapp j
will make no change m the business (
or management of the Missouri Re- j
pubhean. In 1S64 the concern, un. :
dcr the name ot Geo-Knapp & Co., j
was inporatcd on a capital of $400,0
coo, with authouitv to increase to I
$300,000. Th-e owners and stock-
hoU'.crs at the time were George I
Knapp, John Knapp and Nathaniel
Paschall, each holding an equal par
rf tK ctr.fl.- When the stock was
subsequently increased to $500,000,
the increase was divided equally be
tween the three, after reserving 500
shares to the corporation. Two
hnnrJr .l shares were afterwards giv
en to Mr. Wifliam Hyde as a present
from the firm. At the death of Mr.
Paschall, the 1,500 shares owned by
him ivi-nr to his six children and
were divided equally among them.
A few vears a 'o Mr. Gerard li. AI-
I im rm.rned one of Mr. Paschall's
! daughters, Mrs.JCarr, and he with, his
wife, are the owners of 250 shares.
This is all the interest Mr. Allen
has in the concern. The interests
of the parties now stand as follows
and as follows:
vs, 1,500 shares ;
shares ; Pasch-
George Knapp's heirs
Tohn Knapp, 1,500
all's heirs, 1,500 shares; William
Hide, 200 shares ; George Knapp &
Co., 300 shares. Colonel George
Knapp having of late years had oc
casion to use more money than his
brother Tohn, borrowed some of him,
and for the payment of which hy
pothecated a few of his shares ot the
stock. These are subject to redemp
tion at any time. The assessts ot the
firm of George Knapp & Co. are
about $2, 000, 000, and includes the

Washington, D. C, Sept. 30.
T. Ambler Smith, formerly a repub
lican member of congress from Vir
ginia, and for several years follower
of Boss Mahone, said to-day: "I
know that the tide of popular feeling
is against Mahone in the valley. I
have been in the Shenandoah vallev
very recently, and was brought in
contact with men who were posted
as to the political status."
A statement made by ex-Con-
giessman Dezendorf in a speech at a
republican meeting at Williams
burgh a few days ago. has caused a
flutter in Virginia politics. He
quoted President Arthur as saying:
"Dezendorf, I know that you have
teen badly treated, but I am power
less and cannot prevent it. The
caucus of republican senators made
an agreement with MahcTne which
I am bound to carry out."
Dezendorf further said: "I un
derstand that Mahone will address
the people of Southampton in a short
time, anc' when he does I intend to
meet him in that country, face to
face, and charge him with selling
No Moaey for Lawyers in Georgia.
Talbotton, (Ga ) New Era
The practice of the law is begin
ning to dwindle down to nothingness
in the south. It is a profession that
presents to the young man very mea
gre inducements. In a county like
Talbot, for instance, a prominent
gentleman and citizen told us not
long since that he thought the whole
law practice of the countv was
worth scarcely more than $5,000
per annum in cash. We agree with
him, and can readily see that it
grows ies and less eveiy year. It
looks very much as if a prophecy
made by Col. Brantord at our last
March term would come to pass.
He said that the time would come
when lawyers would have stop at the
jail, as they could not pay hotel bills
