Texas came to tho front with a flah story last neck which aocmcd hard to beat. It claimed that a aca fiali was found in the street of an interior town, ouo hundred miles from the coait, after a heavy hail storm. Tho pocu UararitT of the Huh was that it was alive and Hopping. This was a hard story to beat, but Uanachiisctts camo to the front on Tuesday and (ells one that makes Texas blush. It is claimed that aflor a rain storm at Pawtuckot orcr one hundred eels were found in a mud puddlo. NITftO-GLYCEIUNE FILLS. Tills made from a preparation of nitro-gly-eerino will cure heart disease. So says a medi cal Journal That nitro-glyccruie will effectu ally rid a person not only of heart disease, or any other ailment, is not questioned. It will remove tho patient as far from tho disease as accessary to effectually relievo the diseasoof the pationt. As a remover, nitro-glycerine takes a high rank. A rank so high, in fact, tint an inquisitive person has been sent out of right by it. ITowcvcr, nitro-glycerine pills, while effectual removers, are too much so to in spire cntiro conllilenco in their curing power. KIXH TflEEBAW. King Thecbaw, of Dirmah, it will be recol lected, recently poisoned his wifo and her mother, and married bis wife's sister. Tin's was had enough, but bo has been guilty of still mere horriblo crimes. At the age of twenty when he ascended the throne be caused all of his relatives to bo put to death. One of bis brothers was killed by flogging, another had hiilimln broken and was buried alivo, and an other was blown to pieces with gunpowder. At another timo tho young monster was very sick, and fearing he would dio he caused soven hun dred people to bo burned alivo. Recently this bloody king announced that be bad reformed, but his latest exploit will causo his sincerity to be doubted. INSTITUTION OF TRAINING. An institution that bas long been needed is itlast to bo established in Now York. It is an Institution for tho training of and the gradu ating of actors and actresses an American Conservatory of Dramatio Art. The building, which is now in course of construction, will contain a thcatro with a seating capacity of eight hundred. It will havo a large stage fittid with all the appliances of a first-class theatre; a rehearsal room and several rooms for recita tion and practice. The classes will be formed into stock companies subject to the discipline of the best professional theatres, and all to be under the directorship of Frank II. Sargent, at present dramatio diroctor of the Madison Square theatre, Mr. Sargent will have a corps of assistants in the various branches of the profession and the result of their work can not be other than of good in American dramatics, VOLCANO IN FLORIDA. The supposed volcano in southern Florida bu at last been Investigated. For many year! a thin smoke rising from the everglade region has attraoted attention and it bas been rumor ed that it came from Indian camp&res or from a volcano. Various oxpeditions hare been or ganized to solve the mystery, bnt the explorers found so many difficulties In the way that thoy were forced to turn back after a fruitless search. A short time ago Captain Aaher fol lowed the Ancilla river, hunting for cypress logs, and in the course of his journey saw this cloud of vapor and determined to find out what it was. In one of the swamps be found a number of large, black rocks, rising out of the water. Some were worn in the shape of basins and others were huge, hollow shells, all filled with strong sulphur water supplied from subterranean sources. From these arose the miBt or vapor which bas so long puzzled the outside world. CONFERENCE CONCERNING EGYPT. . The conference of European powers, called at the instanee of England to consider the condition of Egypt, especially the regulation of its perplexed finances, is now in session. The policy of Gladstone in Egyptian affairs has been vigorously assaulted by the opposition In parliament, and he has narrowly only escaped defeat In important measures. As this fight is Bicreaaing in lntonsity and about to culminate In a vote of oensuro, it is shrewdly surmised that the conferenco has been called to meet in London in time for its deliberations to influ ence the action of Parliament, and to divert the threatened final assault on the Administra tion. France, Austria, Germany and Italy have sent representatives, who aro to agree upon a plan for tho adjustment of-Egypt's flnancos. No doubt, however, other questions of a serious political character will lie consid ered. Tins will force a suspension of decisive action in tho British Parliament, and give the Administration timo to repair damages. THE CENTURY PLANT. Icars ago, in a conservatory in London, says well-known florist, a century plant, generally apposed to have attained tho see of 100 years. began to show signs of lifo by sending out a 'tem in the center, which grew from seven to ight inches dally. It at onco began to attract goneral attention, Tho stem grow larger every day. The plant was moved from place to place, 'or the glass roof was not high enough, until . as a last resort it was Disced under the cupola. Before many days the Btcm reached the cupola roofi and, fa order that Its nroffress might not retarded, the elnss was removed and the roof raised. When the stem had attained a "eight of about forty-five feet, if I renjember rightly, it stopped growing, and numerous mall branches ornw nut nf tho main stem. achof which was topped with a cluster of magnificent greenish-yellow flowers, forming ' flld bush of beautiful flowers of about ten feot 10 height. It seemed to me all London flocked . to see that flower, and it was the topic of con. Tersatlon everywhere. The American aloe, or , eiitury plant, m it is commonly known, will omotimes bloom when but twenty-five years M. It altogether denonds unon the care. At ' Umea it will not bloom unless it has attained tlio ago of 100 years, bnt there a aloes in Northern climates which attain such an age. TUB FATnERLAND'8 BABIES. Parents have to be bumblo pretty often here In dormany, writes a correspondent from Ber lin, for a family of five or six children is con sidorcd a moderate one, ten or a dozen being so common as not to excite any remark, and the number being largo only when it rises to nearly twonty. Hence it comes about that all tho baby perambulators that ono sees on the streets of a Oerman city aro great wlckor-work affairs, built expressly for two childrcn-not twins, mind you who aro too young to toddle about on their own legs, and into which, if needs must, a third or oven fourth tired little Teuton may be crowded. Thero is nothing in this world like forcsiitht and preparing for future emergencies, even in such a simplo mat ter as buying a baby carriage, for it is a protty constant occurrence in German married lifo to havo the baby carriage going all the timo with two occupants, so that when ono first gets on German soil and sees tho army of nurso girls trundling their perambulators, each ono with two children arranged so that a littlo flaxen bead peeps out from beneath tho covers at each end, one is surprised at what ho considers tho great number of twins in Germany, and all bis preconceived ideas tho twius aro a compara tively seldom human accomplishment disap pear until he examines more closely Into the matter. LONG DELAYED BUT DESKRTED. Our Minister to Kngland presented a gold medal tho other day to Gcorgo Head, who was formerly chief of tho lifo-boat post at Deal, as a reward for a hcroio act which Read perform ed twenty-two years ago. In 1H62 tho Ameri can ship Annie Hooper was wrecked off the Kentish coast, near Deal, and Head and his men, by the exorcise of great skill and daring, in which Head especially imporilol his lifo, succeeded In rescuing tho cntiro crew of tho doomed vessel. In replying to Mr, Lowell's eulogistic speech and accepting the medal, ltciul said that he bad only dono his duty, and that in fact tho circumstance bad mado so lit tle impression upon him that when he was no tified that ho was to receive a medal bo had almost forgotten the eccurrence of the wreck and rescue. True heroism is always modest and self-sacrificing. Tho consciousness of hav ing dono one's duty to God and man, in grand as well as simplo matters, is sufficient reward for men of tbo Iliad and our own Rhodes' stamp. Still we aro glad to notice that our government, in the most conspicuous and pub lio manner, recognizes the grandeur of a heroic action, especially in the rescuing of life in shipwrecks. FIGURES OF THE FISCAL YEAR. The footings of tbo fiscal year can be approx imately given. The reduction of debt will bo $100,000,000 as against 1137,000,000 last year. The Interest-bearing debt will stand at tbo close of the year at about $1,240,000,000, of which amount only (240,000,000 will be subject to call If the present rate of redemption is maintained, there will not be a redeemable bond at the end of the fiscal year in 1830, and a gap of fivo years will follow in which the debt redeemed must be purchased at market rates. The revonue of the government has fallen off abont (40,000,000. The receipts from internal revenuo will be abont 120,000,000 less and the loss from miscellaneous sources, such as land sales, etc., will be about (5,000, 000. Tho custom receipts show a reduction of about (15,000,000. We are importing less than we did last year. The total of dutiable im ports for the ten months ending April 80, 1881, was (383,031,208, against (126,891,712 in the corresponding period of the previous year. In the ten months alone there was a reduction in dutiable Imports of (43,000,000, and as the average rate of duty is 12 per oenf, the loss In custom receipts is accounted for. It is estima ted that the value of merchandise Imported during the fiscal year will foot up (665,000,000 and the value of merchandise exported, (725,- 000,000. The so-called "balance of trade" is therefore tCO.000.000. against (90.000.000 last year. We nave done less business a a people, and beyond that there is nothing eipeclally on satisfactory in tho foreign trade of the dosing year. But where, as a matter of curiosity, is the (00,000,000 that we nave accumulated ac cording to the atatistioians during the year ? Europe has not settled hi specie, for we have exported during the past year more specie than we have imported. The chances are tbat Mr, John Roach could, if oloscly pushed, tell where the immense sum has ogne to. Nothing short of the rack or thumb screw would be apt, howovor, to draw the truth on this point out of him. Cxports and Imports. The Chief of the Bureau of Statistics in his eleventh monthly statement reports that the excess of tho valno of exports over imports or of imports ovor exports of merchandise was i follows : , Mnntti ended Mav 81. 1884 (excess of Im ports ) $7,8 18,069 j five months ended May 81, 1884 (excess of oxports), $9,644,105j cloven months ended May 81, 18S4 (excess of exports), $71,661,040; twelve months ended May 81, 1884 (excess of exports), $61,1211,4:10.
