HkndderlBs on Their Thrones.
Xew York, April 27. Prof.
Mezaroffj of the dynamite school,
h:is issued series "Number One"
of his manifestos, advertising dy
namite as a weapon entirely legit
imite. He says: "Wc now in
form ignorant and cowardly emis
saries, tyrants in this country aud
Europe, that the advocates o dy
namite are in a condition to take
care of themselves, and in a short
time Ireland and every other
country will be freed from tyranny
and czardom. Our case is excit
ing universal sympathy, and can
not be cried down by knaves in
Europe. There are now over 400
schools, and ere long there will be
4,000, so that every trade society
and every workingman's club shall
be taught the science ol explosives,
and two-thirds of the soldiers of
Europe be ready to strike with us,
any day, in the cause of human
liberty; and when we do so we
shall make tyrants shudder on
A Larec roror.
Sax Fk.vncisco. April 27. In
an interview this afternoon with
Charles J. Crocker he stated that
within the past two weeks the
force at work on the California
and Oregon railroad has been
largely increased, so that at pres
ent it numbers close on 3,000 la
borers. The work is principally
directed towards reducing heavy
grades north of Redding, and to
the completion of a number of
large tunnels. All available force
formerly engaged on the Colorado
extension has been moved to the
line of the California and Oregon,
with the exception of about 200
men, who would be transfered
there in about two weeks. Mate
rial was sent forward some time
previous, so that there is nothing
to prevent the speedy completion
of the road except natural difficul
ties existing on the proposed
Want to Sell out.
New York, April 27. Rumors
have been afloat for several days
that the Guion and Anchor steam
ship lines were both negotiating
for the parchase of the Inman
company's vessels, and its good
will m the Liverpool trade. It
was learned yesterday that the In
man line stockholders were anxi
ous to get rid of their property, if
they could do so to good advant
age, owing to great losses which
the company had sustained in the
last four months.
These Did Not Love Life.
The published accounts of l,fi0G
suicides contain queer stories. It
will hardly be credited that a man
would kill himself because his
mule died, but a report from North
Carolina, in October, says that
"Caleb Hobbs committed suicide
on account of the death of a mule
to which ho was attached. The
mule died Friday and the owner
wept over it until to-day, when he
remarked that he could not live
without his mule, and mixinjr a
lot of whisky and laudanum, swal
lowed it. He was found dead."
Another tale from Ohio is barely
credible, as it relates that one Jo
seph Kuder, '-on trial at the small
village of Toutagany, for kissing
the wife of a recently married
man, committed suicide by taking
arsenic." An Oregon youth, aged
19 years, lovqd his cousin and shot
himself through the heart after in
scribing on a visiting card the
werds: "My Fannie, no man has
ver died for you." A small mar
ket gardener in Illinois hung him
self because his corn was rottinjr
in the ground. Another Illinois
man shuffled off this mortal coil
because he had lost his best boy
and best cow, and didn't want to
live any longer. A superstitious
merchant in New York cut his
throat because a customer sent
him a letter asking him for the
latest quotations in looking glass.
An extravagant wife of a. poor
Colorado doctor swallowed arsenic
because her lenient father, who
kad supplied her with money for
many years, had resolved to draw
tsbe string of his money-bag closer,
and not send her any more money,
as he was desirous of her becom
ing more economical in hor ways.
A Missouri father was overcome
with shame on learning that his
son had stolen a watch, and ended
his woe by a dose of poison.
A new Jersey inventor devised
a corn husker, which was a failure
because it only worked satisfacto
rily upon large ears; therefore he
suicided. A San Francisco hunch
back left word behind him that
blood rushed to his head, which
seemed to be shrinking through
his shoulders, and his bones were
tangled one with the other render
ing him wild with pain. The force
of example is often remarkable; a
St. Louis shoemaker shot himself
because hi lived within a block of
a shoemaker who severed his jug
ular vein, and this deed preyed on
his mind. A sailor tied a rope
about his neck and leaped over
board. His body was towed into
port before being discovered. A
"Vermont widow hung herself with
a skein of yarn. A Virginian
made four attempts to take his
life and finally committed suicide
by shooting himself through the
head with a shot-gun. The muz
zle of the weapon was placed
against his right eye and dis
charged by a string fastened to the
trigger and tied around a toe of
the right foot. A Pennsylvania
wueeiwrignt used a natcnet, a
knife and a rope. With the
hatchet he struck himself three
times on the back of the
head, with the knife he
severed his wind-pipe, but missed
the jugular vein, and with the
rope he strangled himself.
An Illinois mechanic hung him
self to a ladder in the bell tower
of a church and was discovered by
a frightened sexton. A Califor-
niau spread a blanket on the floor
by the side of his bed, tied a small
rope around his neck so as to draw
through a loop, and tying the other
end around the top of the bed post,
less than two feet above the floor,
and laid down with his right arm
under his head, and strangled to
death. An Iowa farmer cut his
wrists with a plane, and afterwards
hung himself to a fence five feet
high. The distance was so short
that in order to produce death he
was obliged to draw his knees up
even with his eyes and hold them
there with his elbows. An old
man of SO years living in western
New York, foretold the dav of his
death, and to fulfill his prediction
cut his throat from ear to car with
a razor which he held in one hand,
and which he had tied with a string
so it could not move when doinjr
the deed. A California powder
maker made his exit with giant
powder and was blown to shreds.
Political Puppy Promises.
"If you want to see what disap
pointment is real disappointment
and plenty of it let him come to
Washington," said one of the
disappointed men from a western
state, as he sat himself down to
wait until the mail should bring
him some money to get back home
with. He came on to seo about
an office and he got tired of wait
ing. Everybody was polite to
him, but in an accidental way he
discovered that his chances were
neither immediate nor very certain.
He said the promises "were too
thick to realize on all of 5em."
Then he laughed a bit of a chuckle,
as though trouble didn't weih
very heavily upon him, and
"Did you ever hear about John
Osborn and his setter pups?"
On being informed that his
listener had not only not heard
of them, but was surprised that
the man owned setter pups, ho
told the barkeeper he would take
the same as before with a squirt of
bitters in it, and began:
"This abundance of promising
reminds me of the story. John
Osborne ran forsherifTin St. Paul,
Minn., and while he was working
all the boys with his good nature
he had frequent calls at his house,
and whenever a man "with a fancy
for field sports- came the talk
always fell upon a beautiful setter
and her fine puppies.
" 'Nice puppies, John.'
" 'Yes, bullT puppies, ain't
" 'They are the most beautiful
setter pups I ever saw anywhere."
"Then the candidate for sheriff
would take the man aside, and in
a confidential tone, tell him:
" 'You just wait till after elec
tion anil I'll give you one of tl'osc
"This thins: had been ceins: on
for u couple of weeks, and one
evening a man shut the door aud
left the house with a promise of a
pup lingering in his ear, when
Mrs. Osborne asked:
" 'John, how many puppies are
" 'Five. Why?"
" 'Well, I was thinking that to
night you had promised the twen
ty third man that he should have
one of them."
" 'Oh, well, Mary' said Osborn ,
'don't you think he would be a
mean man to run for sheriff who
couldn't promise a pup to his
friend?' " Washington Republi
can. Hebo is a newly established
postoffi.ee on the Nestucca, some
20 miles from Tillamook bay, in
the center of the county. The
Nestucca has about 10 miles of
tide water, with splendid soil on
each side of the stream from the
bay up some 20 miles. The bot
tom land is narrow, not more than
three-quarters of a mile wide on
an average, but the foothills are
low, with numerous small streams
running down from the main
mountains, on which there is con
siderable good land, as good as
there is in the state vacant. The
country has no mills, although
there is quite a demand for lumber,
which has to be shipped from Ya
quina by steamer. The timber is
mostly dead from fires, but there
is some fine yellow fir which is
green near the river enough to
run a large mill for years and
good water power near at hand,
immediately at the head of tide
water. There is a small bay with
nine feet of water at low tide.
Mr. Tim Gleeson, ex-member of
the Council from the Fourth Ward,
Cincinnati, says he suffered terri
bly with rheumatism all last win
ter and spring. He tried all kinds
of liniments and medicines with
out any benefit until he used St.
Jacobs Oil, the first application of
which insured a full night's repose,
and its subsequent use entirely
cured him. It is a great remedy,
and the sufferer's hope.
