The Hoscovites fear that should the rnmort prove true, they will have to face th« gravest peril possible.

He has advised that Grand Duke George, 'hie second eon,' should, on .account of hit health, renounce his claim in favor o< hie brother Grand Dnke Michael, 'who ought to take the oath as heir presumptive to the throne. The Berliner Tage- blatt published a telegram from Llvadie asserting the bethrothalof the czarowita and Princes8*Alix would formally occur Tuesday and that the marriage would be . celebrated -Wednesday. This hastening of the ceremony is said to be due to the rule of the Romanoffs requiring any heir apparent to marry before ascending the throne and to proclaim his successor. On this account the proclamation of Grand Duke Michael as the ultimate heir apparent is generally expected; Another rule in con- neption with the assession requires that When the oath of allegiance 'to anew czar is administered to the troops and officials an oath of fidelity to the heir apparent must be taken at the same time.

It Is now agreed with tolerable unanimity that It has an «tmo*phera If it did not have, theh it could goarcelf hate snow, ice and water and the melting every summer of tho loa Cap around the south' pole, which la ob- cerved through modern telescopes every year. There ftto marks and lines npou the surface which indicate an intelligent agency human or otherwise. These marks are the double line of canals across the middle of the planet and a number of mysterious geometrical figures around the south polar cap. The planet la so near to us this summer and fall that those strange marks have been visible from both Australia and America. Professor Hold«n of Lick observatory observed in the Rummer ot 1803, when Mars was so near to ns, three prominent spots, or points of light, in • triangle of tolerably regular shape. What these spots of light maybe is now one of the great questions concerning Mars. The Frenchman, Camille Flamma- rlon, who has so vivid an imagination that it is hard to tell where the poetry In him ends and the science begins, inclines to the opinion that' Mara is .inhabited, and that her people are very mncb more advanced thinkers than wo are. Be has even propounded the theory tha the strange lights arid figures may be attempts on the part of the Mars poop] to signal us. It would be bold minds in deed that should try to signal peopl who were 40,000,000 miles away. But the points and the strange figure are not the only things that make Man intensely interesting to astronomers • ;his time. July 10 of this year Professor Lowell saw the red planet, with a de oided nick in its circumference, as though a wedge had been cut out of it This disappeared, but July 28 Profosso Javelle saw, instead of a nick, a sort o luminous horn standing oat from the edge of Mara. Another astronomer ha found, or thinks, he has, a gigantic pyramid of artificial construction oh the BUT face of the planet. The strange blao] marks shift from time to time; and th three luminous points have now disap peorod. Professor Oqlton of the Kew observa tory gays that .a flashlight from a ruir ror 35 yards long and 15 feet wide could be seen on Mars through telescopes large at that at the Lick observatory.

Oh«rle« B. Anderson, private secretary to Norman F»y of OhloaKO, was held on i charge of einbeKidiug IN.OOO from his employer, tn the Orgabott ot the ancient philosopher, Aristotle, was bietitloned ft Which ho called tho Necotnedian Una It Was tho aide of a square Whose coto touts were equal to the contents of given circle of which that line was one of the chords. Geometers have ktoown there was such a line, and many have believed that the anoient Greek ane Egyptian philosophers understood how to Bqtiave the circle e*actly—that is, how to find geometrically on n given circle the side of a square whose superficial contents should be precisely equal to the superficial contents of the circle. Modern >nathematica has been unable to do this until Bow. There was always a fraction that made an unending deci* mat. The geometrical diagrams of Aristotle and the ancient philosophers were destroyed when the great Alexandrian library was set fire to by the early Christians, and all its priceless contents went up in smoke and flame. But an American citizen, Dr. Charles de Medici, of a Danish noble family, believes he has rediscovered the Neco- median line. Dr. de Medici is a rest dent of New York city. At least, if it is not .the Necomedian line, it is a line through whose discovery Dr. de Medic! has actually accomplished the supposed impossible problem of squaring the circle. 'In brief, if yon divide a circle into 17 /equal parts, then measure off six of those parts and connect the outer points of the first and the sixth parts by a line drawn within the circle and cutting its circumference, that Hue will be the side of the square sought Speaking geometrically, the chord subtending an arc equal to eix-eeventeenths of the circumference will be the side of the square. This square is a mean proportional between two other squares which ore obtained geometrically. The numerical equivalents have been worked out by Dr. de Medici, and in the new arithmetic which is to result from this discovery they will be duly utilized. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of Dr % de Medici's achievement That it will revolutionize geometry and the present system of logarithmic tables there is not the shadow of doubt: It will be the basis for the geometry of the twentieth century. Dr. de Medici'worked for years over the problem before he solved it, worked with a persistence and enthusiasm that characterize ouly groat souls.

When the Nicaragua canal shall be a fixed fact and its history comes to be written, no one, man will figure in the tory so prominently as the late General )ouiel Macaulay. To no one man will ts success be so greatly owing as. to iim.

General Dauiol Mncanlay was a brother- of the famous actor, Baruoy Maoiinlay, and'resembled him strongly. He lived in Indianapolis many years, and, though most persons called him General Don Macaulay, to the pcoplo of .Indianapolis he will always be known as Slnyor Dan Mncaulay. Ho was as broye ns he was great hearted, and ho and his brigade did some desperate .fighting during the civil war. In the winter of 1878 he was before COU;.TCSS trying to induce it to toko np the Nicaragua canal and further the enterprise at leiist by its approval and nu official charter. Ho.has worked for its interests over siuce,' through good ta»\ ill. At the time of his (loath ho was tho resident represout- irtivo of tho Canal company iu Nicaragua. Tho Kiduest part of it all is thut ho did not live to BOO tho canal completed. Noyer in the history of America has the wheat market manifested such Btraugo conditions as it has done this August.

S3.— The Manias City and Memphis express which left here at »:8« Saturday night was wrecked and robbed by the Cook gang of desperadoes at.Oorrata, a blind siding five miles south of here. The train Was running 20 miles an hour and when within 100 feet of the switch, a man came out from .behind an embankment and threw the switch for the sidetrack, running the train into a string of empty boxcars. Engineer James Harri«' applied the air brakes and reversed the engine. The robbers commenced .firing at the engine and coaches. As soon as the train stopped two of the robbers commanded th« engineer and fireman to come down and marched them in front of them to the baggage and express cars, Here they forced Kipress Messenger Ford to open the doors by perforating the side of the car with bullets. Meanwhile two more of the robbers had taken up a position at the rear end of the sleeper, .two others mounted tho platform between the smoker and baggage car and two more the platform between the first and second coaches/all keeping np a continual firing. . ' DlMppmmd In the Darkneu. The two robbers in the express ear were meanwhile ransacking the car, se- . curing all the money in the local safe. They commanded Messenger Ford to open the through safe, bat when he explained that t_»«afe was locked at the main office and not opened until it reached its destination they left the oar. The two on the /platform of tbe oar then started through the coaches, demanding money and valuables. As soon as they reached the rear erid the two men on that platform started through tbe coaches. 'When they were about half way through a freight close behind whistled and Bill Cook, the leader, who all the time remained outside issuing : commands, swearing 1 , at the passengers and shooting, called for ' all hands to come out. The men OH the cars jumped out and \vhen all were on the ' ground fired a volley »i tho train and disappeared In the darkness. . There were eight or ten men in the party.
