A Nobleman' Opinion.
New Yobk, Sept. 8. The earl of Dun
raven, who arrived with several others of
the English nobility yesterday, goes
hence to-day to look after his property in
Colorado. He is accompanied by the
Earl of Coledon and Lord Rodney, both of
the 1st Life Guards, for a hunting expe
dition. Being asked by a World repor-
er if any English farmers had emigrated
to Colorado, he replied "No," and that
he thought it was not particularly
adapted to farming. He thought the em
igration of EngliuU farmers to America
not likely to increase ; the causes now im
pelling them were only temporary.

Statement by Murderers
Lebanon, Pa., Sept. 8. Brandt and
Hummel, two of the men convicted of
the murder of Rubor, to-day made state-
ents in reference to the murder.
Brandt denies ever having had anything
to do with the murder, never solicited
Drew or Stochler, never held a policy on
Ruber's life, but considers it an ordinary
business transaction. He says he bought
it as others did in that neighborhood, ex
pecting Robor to die soon, he being an
old man, and that he never was in conpir
acy to murder him. These denials are
creating considerable discussion, as they
destinctly contradict the confessions of
Drew and Stochler, who expect to hang
for their crimes.

attacked by overwhelming numbers.

one of the mills would bid. Each and
all declared they were full of orders

Rome, Sept. 4. The Italian irrendenta
question is exciting and has renewed at
tention in consequence of a recent
pamphlet issued by Col. Haymorle,
brother of Count Andrassy's probable
successor as the Austro-Hungarion pre
mier, stating that it is fermented bv nn-
scrupulons men who are actuated by
lust of conquest, and that hatred of Aus
tria is encouraged in Italy because it is
thought that a province could be more
easily filched from Austria than any
other power. The Liberta, conservative
organ, and therefore having more moder
ate views on ioreign pontics than news
papers of the left, replying says : Aus
tria cannot expect that Italy should de
clare the Italian provinces still nmlnr
Austrian sway, belonging to Austria by
full rights, and shall continue so inde
finitely. On the other hand, Italy can't
claim that Austria shall, merely to please
her, restore her valuable provinces. As
Italy cannot think of making war in her
present condition and Austria cannot
attack Italy merely for having certain
aspirations, both parties should stop
making insincere and sterotyped declar
ations. Riot In Chill.

Punished for Stealing Government
Seattle. Aug. 81. Within tln nant.
few days several prominent loggers,
whose operations have been recently sur
veyed by Copt. Prosser, special agent U.
S. Interior department, plead guilty and
confessed judgment in various amounts,
ranging from $200 to $500 each for tres
passing upon government lands in the
neighborhood of Puget Sound. Many
others have proposed to pursue the same
course. Public sentiment here is grow-
iug more lavoraoie to the enforcement
of the law prohibiting trespassers on the
government domain. The general feel
ing is that the interests of the country
will be promoted by stopping all illicit
operations oi this Hind
sheriff, auditor, collector and county at
torney, and are sure on city and district
attorney. The republicans will probably
get the balance, except perhaps two or
three supervisors and school directors.
The superior judges are divided.
San Francisco. Sept. 6. A seaman
named James Alexander, belonging to
the ship City of Shanghai, was struck

Killed by a Caving Bank,
While four laborers were excavating
at the corner of Sanchez and Jersey
streets yesterday afternoon, one of them,
Stephen Kaler, was buried by the caving
of a bank. He was soon extricated, but
died in a few minutes. He was a native
of Ireland and aged 29 years.
San Francisco, Sept. 6. About fif
teen hundred ballots remain to be count
ed in the city, and the canvass will prob
ably be completed before morning. Kal
loch now has 1482 majority over Flint
and is elected. The workingmen have
also elected the sheriff, auditor, district
attorney, city and county attorney tax,
collector, public administrator and sur
veyor. The republicans elect the asses
sor, coroner and superintednent of
schools. The offices of treasurer, recor
der, county clerk, (street superintendent)
and police judge are still in doubt with
chances in favor of the workingmen's
candidates. The superior judges will
probably be about equally divided. The
republicans are likely to elect four out
of five justices and their ticket of super
visors is believed to be successful with
perhaps two or three exceptions; also
five of their candidates for school direc
tors. The workingmen have nrobablv
elected three or four, Beerstecher and
Stoneman. workingmen. and Cone, re
publican, are elected railroad commis
sioners. There seems to be no doubt
that the republicans have elected all four
congressman. The legislature is . still
nndecided, but if the republicans have
not a majority they will in all probabil
ity be able to oontrol both houses. The
result on the state ticket remains as here
tofore reported, though it is not quite
certain how the supreme court may

more he looks for it. The more medicine
a man takes, the more he will have to

Acidity always arises either from hav
ing eaten too much food, or of a quantity
which the stomach could not dissolve.
The remedy is, eat less and less each
meal until there is no acidity, then you
know for yourself how much your
stomach can manage. To eat the same
amount and as regularly take something
to correct the acidity, is certain to cause
dyspepsia, or some other more serious
form of disease.
Mr. Lincoln's ' Favorite Oath."
The change in the name of the Rue Saint
Arnaud in Paris into the Rue Lincoln
continues to encounter the mild opposi
tion of the Figaro of that city. In the
number of that journal for the 2nd of
August appears a communication from
"The Circle of the Rue Saint Arnaud,"
an association composed of about 1500
artists, men of letters, former public
functionaries, and financiers living on
that street. These gentlemen protest
against the new name, Rue Lincoln. It
is, they say, not euphonic. It is not
pleasant to near themselves called " The
Circle of the Rue Lincoln.', Xhey ap
preciate "at its just value the personality
of M. Lincoln." But Marshal de Saint
Arnaud, after whom the street was
named, died on the field of battle at the
dawn of a glorious victory. They would
better appreciate M. Lincoln had he died
for France instead of for the United
States. In his lifetime "he treated us
badly; his favorite oath was Damn
Frenchmen; Damnees Francais! This is
how M. Lincoln loved ns." If the Mu
nicipal Council mnst name the street
after the President of a Republie the
Circle would prefer to have it called
"La Rue Grevy." Xew Yotk Evening

"Well, you know, we all thought this
was the last, and public feeling kinder
simmered down on toward the end of the
week, when who should come booming
up the aisle on Sunday morning but Mr
and Mrs.Banks, with Tecumseh Aristotle
Banks, the remainin twin I Vn ,
ought just to 've heard the congregation
laugh ! I never seen nothin like it in all
my experience. Even Dr. Binns had to
smile. And the Bankses, they were per
fectly wild with rage. Anyhow, they
baptized Tecumseh: and after meetin'
some of the elders got to jofcin' about it.
One allowed they'd have to apply to the
town Supervisors for an extension of the
water works ; another allowed that ar
rangements ought to be made to divert
Huckleberry creek and run it down the
middle aisle oi the church : another made
soino kind of a joke about business being
good because so many Banks werein town;
another said that Banks would need about
twelve pews when his family grew up.
Somebody must have told Bunks about it,
for what does be do to revenge himself?
He sends down to Clarion county to his
two sisters to come un and bring their
children. So they had a couple of babies
apiece, and as soon as they arrived Banks
he begins to bring them into church
gradually, like the others. You never
seen such meetings as them ! The church
was jammed full of people just roarln'.
And when Banks came in on Sunday
with the fourth and last of the sisters'
babies, the Trustees thought it was time
to interfere. Gettin to be a farce, vou
know. So Deacon Smith be stepped up
and said somethin' or other to Banks.and
iianks, quicker 'n a wink, laid down the
buby and banged the deacon with his
fist. And so I dunno how it was, but in
a minute there was Bank's, Deacon
Smith, Deacon Hubbard, Bank's sister's
baby and me, all a rollin' and a pumpin'
over the floor, hittin' and kickin' and
whoopin' in a manner that was ridiculous
"And when we all come to and got
straightened out, Banks picked up the
battered baby of his sister and quit, and
the trustees held an informal meetin' and
agreed to close the church for a month, so
as to kinder freeze Banks out, and no
we've shut up ; but I reckon it is no use.
for I hear Banks has got his back up and
gone over and joined the Baptists."

A Living Man's Bbain Exposed.
There is in Livonia a man who may be
come an object of as much interest to the
scientific world as was the Frenchman in
Canada years ago, who, by a gunshot
wound, laid open his stomach, ami lived
for years, letting physicians observe the
process oi digestion. The Livonia man
one day last week waa kicked in the fore
head by a bone which be tried to make
jump a fence, and a wound inflicted in
his forehead through which the brain may
be seen palpitating. The wounded man

Charles Napier, an English scientific
man, has been trusting the truth of
Liebig's theory that liquor-drinking is
compatible with animal food, but not
with a farinacious diet. The experiment
was tried upon twenty-seven liquor-drinking
persons, with results substantiating
the Liebig theory.
Among the most striking instances of
reform brought about by a change of
diet, was thatof a gentleman of sixty, who
had been addicted to intemperate habits
for thirty-five years, his outbursts
averaging once a week. His constitution
was so shattered that he bad ureat diffi
culty in insuring bis life. Afteran attack
of delirium tremens, which nearly ended
fatally he was persuaded to enter upon a
farinaceous diet, which, we are assured,
cured him completely in seven months
