stream of water is coming in under the
Invpi' ami has increased to such an alarm
ing extent that Major Sterling, the chief
engineer, was sent for bv wiro. Later
another call was made for 20,000 sack!
and 700 ehovels, all the hands thatcoult
wield a shovel to come quick or the le
vee would cive way.
A anecial train has loft Greenville with
the material, and is picking up all the
hands between Keulah, Miss., and Kound
Lake, tlio latter point being opposite the
threatened place. Should the levee give
way it would flood many of the finest
plantations in the state, and a stubborn
fight is buing made to hold it.

Memphis, March 23. Authentic in
formation comes at 10 o'clock today that
the report of a break in the levee at
Australia, Mies., was erroneous. Tele
grams say the levee can be held intact
for several days.
The river here shows a decline of .02

bright sunshine, makes the outlook en

tic details of the outbreak on Sunday at
Toka, Asia Minor, where the Turks at
tacked the Armenians while the latter
were in church, showed that 100 Chris
tians were massacred. The Armenians'
houses wore given over to pillage.
The representations of the ambassa
dors of the foreign powers regarding the
condition of Anatolia have made little
impression upon the sultan, who. rely
ing upon the support of Russia, is con
vmced he has nothfng to fear from the
so-called concert of the powers, which is
continually harped upon, although it is
believed it is little or no concert beyond
a desire in some quarters to postpone
war really exists.
Diplomats here are said to be once
wore turning their attention to the con
duct of the sultan. It is somi-oflicially
intimated they are again of tho opinion
the system of friendly representations on
the subject of Armenia, which have hith
erto been followed, must be changed for
sterner methods of dealing with tho evils
complained of. The sultan, however,
consoles himself with the-bolief that he
will survive this new fit of righteous in
dignation, as ho has tided over others of
8 much more serious character.

Santa Fe, K. M., March 23. Prepara
tions for hanging Francisco Borrego, An
tonio Borrego, Lauriano Alarid and Pa
tricio Valencia were completed this
morning. A troop of cavalry and a com
pany of infantry were ordered to guard
the prisoners from the penitentiary to
the jail, and guard the jail where the
gallows was erected. The execution was
to have been private, only 24 persons be
As the prisoners started from the pen

the attorney-general stating that the
president had granted a reprieve of, 10
days to look more into the case, the
press of business having prevented the

in the tragedy, says he dreamed last
night a reprieve would reach them just
before the execution. Kumors are rife

Dangers of the Grip.
The greatest dangers from La Grippe
is of it resulting iu pneumonia. If rea-
sonablo care is used, however, .and
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken,
all danger will be avoided. Among the
tens of thousands who have used this
remedy for la grippe, wo have yet to
learn of a single case having resulted
in pneumonia, which shows conclusively
that this remedy is a certain preventive
of that dread disease. It will affect a
permanent cure in less time than any
other treatment. The 25 and 50 cent

There is now living- in Hartland, Me.,
at the ripe old age of 75 years, one of
Maine's notable widows. This is Mrs.

brother of Wendell Phillips. Her hus

friends being Dr. O. W. Holmes and

has in her house several iintique relics
of great interest and historical value,
among them bong u marble top table
and drawer which belonged to John
Brown, of Harper's Ferry fame, and a
copper ewer and sideboard, once the
property of John Phillips, the first
mayor of the city of Boston. She tells
many an interesting reminiscence of
Wendell Phillips, with whom she was
