Upon the washstand was a note addressed to his brother Jim, it read as follows : "Dear Brother Jim : My feelings can only be understood by God above. Every thought of future happiness is crushed by my misery. You have been so unselfish to me in my last affliction, it breaks my heart to think of leaving you ; but you never shall know what I have suffered in the last five years. What will dear mother think? It is cowardly not to go to her or to eee my darling Flossie? God bless her and make her a pure and good woman. God forgive me for this terrible act. I am not insane, but unable longer to endure life." Two Austrian Tragedies. San Fbancisco, Oct. 1.

One of the greatest curiosities is the snow flower that blooms m the north ern portion of Siberia, where thf rth is continually covered with a coating' of snow ana zrosr. jl nis wonderful tjlant shoots forth from the frozen soil on the first day of the year, and reaches the heig-ht of about three feet; it blooms on me tmra aay, remains open twenty four hours and then returns to its oria-inal elements. It shinps for asino-l day, then the stem, leaves aiid flower are converted into snow. The leaves are three in number. The flower is star-shaped, its petals about as long1 as the leaves and about half an inch wide. On the third day the extremities of the leaves show little glistening- specks, like diamonds, about the size of the head of a pin. . These are the seeds of this queer flower. On one occasion some of these seeds were gathered and hastily transported to St. Petersburg-. They were there placed in a bed of snow, where they were kept until the first of the following - year, when the snow flower burst forth and was great ly admired and wondered at by all who saw it.
