From the report of I he police it appears that Fritsch and Voltz had some trouble about their accounts, between 7 and 8 o'clock last evening, that Voltz left the butcher .shop, after a passage of arms, and hring a boulder through a screen door of the establishment. Officer Toomey beard the disturbance and made an attempt to arrest Voltz who resisted and in the melee the policeman inflicted one or more severe blows on the head of his intended captive.

The great Abyssinian chief Has nt present a person of much interest to the ItaliatiM, and the 7ft- forma is publishing n sketch' of his life, in the course of which it is stated that ho is tho son of Abyssinian peasants. Ho was born about forty-flvo years ago, in tho village of Panmkii, near Mekalle, and served for many years as groom, under tho uncle of the Negus Ras Area. Later on he became master of the wardijobo'at court, and married the <laii#lite^W Ras Areas, who died not long after the marriage. Ho then rose to the rank of chamberlain, and was iiiuilly made Governor of Tigre, with the title of Ras. Ras Aloola is of middle height, has a chocolate-colored skin, ami a thin face, but is otherwise rather stout. He never laughs, talks slowly, is polite to strangers, but haughty to inferiors. His orders are only given onco. If they are not executed ho horsewhips his servants. As a rule ho wears a white cotton shirt and trousers. A rod fez covers his close-cut hair. On special occasions ho wears a red silk shirt, the robe of tho Governor. Ho is an excellent horseman, and it will be difficult to find an Abyssinian who bears tho hardship of traveling better than he. He accompanies the Negus barefooted on all his tours, and never shows a sign of fatigue. Having had no education he can neither write nor read, but is very intelligent and cunning, but pious and superstitious witfial.. His avar' e is extreme. He takes everywhe o, and gives nowhere. Wherever ho goes he takes everything he can lay hold of. On his'marches he is accompanied br his servants, who carry his wine, made of honey. Ras Aloola is fond of women, but tries to conceal that fact. One of the many Abyssinian pooms in his honor runs thus: Ho Is as fair as an angel, And us strong us a lion, Swift-footed as u leopard, Wise as Solomon. Generous IIB u king, IB most valiant of all. The King has promised him tho crown of Kassala, if ho can earn it. Eight generals tight under him. His daughter is a good and beautiful woman, who lius protected Count Saliin- beni and his companion, and it is due to her influence that they have not been killed. ifoofl null/; .gfnnw olil no RTTO[ -won Kl him ,mi/f moil rfsBct f)!K|R«t:) xlm/iif ml iftlw ,rinvf oiU Jniilfla« viif noqir We •> n jint ,B!>X!» -iuif luin have euov^an ADI A JAM BH8 QOOJfl 3JIU4MI MOITA'lITSHOD 3JAM3--I M2ITAMU3HH *"> IA.HU3W FOR ALTON SCENERY— An Alton gentleman who has traveled pretty extensively In this country and has been through California, also in Europe, says thac the riew.east and south, from tho Unitarian ohuroh Is tho finest ho has seen anywhere.

"Yes, considerable," replied Smith, guardedly. "For instance," said Thompson, "if I should say 'I wish Brown would die,' you would consider it very wicked and'bo very much surprised and greatly shocked." '"Most decidedly!" responded Smith with cmpha- sig.
