The Missouri Legislature convenes in extra session to-morrow; (Wednesday.) In a duel between two students at Pesth, Saturday, one of the combatants was shot dead. Ada Vaughan, a 12-year-old girl, of Butler county) Missouri, was shot to death by some unknown miscreant. Richard Goodwin and Grace Blanton, colored incendiaries, were lynched at Floyd, La., recently. The woman had confessed. • Col. Morrisota is quoted as expressing the opinion that some people will not get all they expected out of the Inter-State Commerce law. The Virginia Legislative committee and the parties representing the foreign bond holders have come to a deadlock on the State debt question. Ex-Senator Stephen W. Dorseyi has returned from Europe, and it is said he sold his ranch in New Mexico to an English* syndicate for $3,000,000. '"•The ill health of Mr. Parnell, the Irish leader, is reported to be not only serious but positively alarming. Cancer of the stomach is said to be his ailment. " • , Bexar county, Texas, appropriates $5,000 for drought sufferers, the beneficiaries each to receive 75 cents a day, which they must earn by work on the roads. " The murder of editor Gambrell, of the Prohibition paper .at Jackson, Miss., turned out to have been a case of deliberate assassination, like that of Rev. Haddock, at, Sioux City, Iowa. , City Marshal Mole shot William Painter at Mound City,. 111., in a .quarrel Saturday. Painter was trying to oust Mole, that he might be made City Marshal. A block of buildings in the main street of Garden City, Kas., was destroyed by fire Sunday; loss, $30,000. The glassworks at Homestead, Pa., were destroyed by fire Saturday night, loss, $50,000. " Thomas Allen, the young mau of New Haven, Conn., who spoiled a wedding .Saturday by not appearing at the church to take his place as the groom, says he was not even engaged to the girl and knew nothing of the wedding except that he had been invited. ' Jeff Davis, in a review of "The Life of General Lee" by General Wolseley, indignantly describes it as "a romance without any claim to the title of history." Evidently Wolseley used Jeff's name with a little j and a big D. But for once Mr. Davis has hit the right man. The seamen of the ship Albania, which reached New York, Frjday, with nearly all hands sick, charge that their disease is due to unwhold- some food furnished by the captain. Capt. Brownell denies the charge. First otticer Alexander "Campbell died while the vessel was off quar^n- tine. Rev. J. Bell Cox, vicar of St. Margaret's Episcopal church, in Liverpool, Eng., has been thrown into prison for practicing ritualistic forms and attitudes. The city is in a fever of excitement over what is regarded ns a Tory attempt at cor ercion of conscience, and the incident recalls the reign of Henry VII{. Pennsylvania is proud of its 8,000 citizen soldier boys, and they arc not kept for mere parade, either. When war with Canada wasjthreatened, recently, Gov. Beaver telegraphed to Washington that within 24 hours the Pennsylvania troops could be concentrated on Lake Erie and be ready for business. Having left a leg on a Southern battle field, Gov. Beaver is no novice in the arts of war. The demand on the Illinois Legislature for the abrogation of the Chicago Board of Trade's charter is based on the allegations that it _has "dishonored Chicago, injured 'and robbed the food producers of the world," and that "it depreciates farm products at least six hundred millions a year." Mr. J. J. Richards, who makes this calculation, wan a member of the board for twenty years, and it is, therefore, reasonable to suppose that ho is a standard authority on robbery. ( Sunday School Convention. PECATUU, III., May 9.—The State Sunday school convention in whioh all classes excepting the Catholics will bo represented, meets hero to morrow and will continue .in session for throe days. Six hundred dole- gates will bo in attendance, including Bomo of the best known Sunday- school workers In the country. WHERK THE HAJ',TH.QtJAKE WAS. Ouly Slight Visitations In Texas and Arizona us compared with Ilio Wreck and Kxiln in Mexico. EL PASO, Tex., May 9.—Britton Davis, at. present general manager of the Corrolitas Mining company, writes to the President of the company that startling rumors, are coming in regarding the effect of the earthquake. Tlio Goirolitas mines are situated 110 riiles southwest from El Paso. It is reported at Corrolitas that there is an active volcano about sixty miles southwest of that place beyond Casa Grandcs and near the locality where a volcano is reported by Gov. Torres to have burst forth. A large spring has also burst forth near Corrolitas. This spring at last accounts was throwing a stream of water as large as ainan's body to a hejght of .twenty-five or thirty feet. "Davis says: "Reports from Bavispe say forty families were destroyed. Other towns are supposed to have suffered more heavily. Buildings in several towns were cracked and shaken." TIU5 WOKST NEWS TO COME. Slight tremors continue to be felt here. Satuiday night at 10:40, quite a severe shake was experienced. It is now evident that El Paso was pretty near the northeast boundary of the region visited by the earthquake. It seems to have been heaviest some 200 or 300 miles southwest from here in Mexico. The facilities for coui- municating with that region are meagre. It will probably be weeks before the full extent of the damage is known. It is only where there are Americans or European miners at work that much effort is made to ascertain and send out accurate iu : formation,, but each bit of news from that, part of Mexico confirms the previous reports, of disaster to life and property and of volcanic eruptions. ..'.,. mystery as body. to where they got the MAY 1, 1887.

May 9—Intense excitement prevails in the upper encl of Rock Island county by the discovery yesterday of uiedicul students in the act cf boiling a human body in a large kettle on an island in the, Mississippi for the purpose, they say, of obtaining-the skeleton for a college in Chicago. The students live at LeClaire, lo., and there is ft 1J< gaii's Tomb. WASHINGTON', May 8.—The Logan Guard of Honor met last evening and took further measures relative to special services to be held at the tomb of Logan on Decoration Day. The hour for holding the services was not fixed, but the general desire seemed to be that the service should follow that to be held at Arlington, making it probable that the hour will be fixed at 5 o'clock p. ni. Capital Notes. Sr-niNaifiEuv 111., May 9—Both houses held brief sessions this evening, at which nothing of importance ,was done,, considerably less than a qu,oruvn being present in either. Soon Hare Died. Burks Medicine Co., Quincy, 111: GENTS—I want to tell you what your White Pino Balsam has done for me, I had a oough for three long months, contracted while in Leadvillo, about Aug. 19.

Have not oven coughed for four days. Yours truly, MU8. S. J. BARRACK. ' LITTLE APUICOTS. There is nothing so positive in its action in treatment of deranged Jivpr, biliousness, heartburn, nervous and sick headache, as Little Apricot Pills, easy to take as sugar, so small, so pleasant. Try them. It Is no wonder that people complain oi hard times when they pay a doctor bill every few months, amounting to several dollars, instead of keeping on hand some reliable medicine like Burks 1 White Pino Balsam tthat would cost them but 60o, and perhaps cure three or four colds.
