A Tombstone, Ari., special says r Three different reports have beew received relative to the Indian raid near Urcs last week. One was that the Indians killed eleven teamsters, all Americans, and forty mules. Another report said seven Mexicans ' and seven Americans were killed. The last and probably more trustworthy report is that they attacked a train of four wagons and killed the Mexican teamsters, thence raided near Mlneas Prietas and killed two Mexican woodchoppers, then made another detour and raided around back toward theMulatos mountains, stealing horses as they went, and came from the direction of Puerto Caneja. their old trail - The countrr is terrorized, and ranches for almost a hundred miles around will be abandoned.

The Alva will probably be the most elegant and costly private yacht in the world. The builders, by instructions of Mr. Vander- biit, are not to make known her cost. Their contract does not specify any stipulated -. sum. ' and she is being constructed regardless of expense. Com-getent judges estimate that from $300,000 to $500,000 will be expended on her. She is 1-eing built entirely of the best aualUv of steel, both ribs 'and sheathing, and is to rank in the higuest class of the English Llovds.

HI8 BRAVE TWO-YEAR-OLD BOY. Farmer .Green's Child Saves tllmself bv run sing to the Sides of a Well. Indianapolis, Ind., August 9.- The miraculous escape from death of the two- year-old child of farmer Jesse Green, of the southern part of this county, is causing more talk than many more startling events of greater importance ever have in this State, especia ly as the cool bravery of the little one is all to which it owes its life. r.ariy one morning, a neighbor passing near the bouse heard the cries of a child as though in distress, and stopped at the house and asked Mrs. Green where the baby was. She replied that she supposed that lie was at tne oarn witn his lather, and the neigh bor said: "1 head him crying, and thought inaybe he had gotten lost in the strip of woods across the road." This excited the mother, and she went to the barn to inquire after the child. The father had not seen the baby, and together witn the neighbors, the parents started out was searched, but the child could not be found, though faint answers to the mother's cans could be distinguished. Despairing of finding the child in the woods, the searching party turned toward the house, and as they neared it the cries became more distinct. Following up the direction whence the sounds came,the party approached the stock well, and for the liist time it dawned upon tnem that the cries came from the well. Approaching and cStoYh iouy was entirely suumergea, tne neau oniy oemg above tne water, it was the work of but a few moments till the child was rescued, badiy cuiiied by the cold water in which it had been for thirty min utes or more. An examination of the well showed that i , ....... 1 . .... ... . I . : . of which was water. The child had fallen well, and had been entirely submerged. v hen it reached the surface it held its head above tho water, by clinging to a couple of bricks with which the well v as walled up, and from between which the mortar had crumbled away. In this position it had remained during tbe entire time its parents were engaged in the search.. DR. AL WATTS AND A VICTIM. The Former as Lord High Executioner at Station 1 Today. Dr. Al Watts, Boston's veteran dog catcher, this morning, at Police Station 1, scientifically disposed of one of the most ferocious animals that has ever come under his notice. The dog, an immense animal, weighing ouer 100 pounds, was a cross between a mastiff and a bloodhound, and originally belonged to a Faneuil market butcher, who raised him. He possessed such an ugly disposition that he was given away to William H. Kivlan, who keeps a saloon at tLi Endicott street. He has bitten several persons, although only two and a half years old, and this morning came to an untimely end for a similar trick last Wednesday noon. Twice he terribly bit Mrs. Catharine Houghton, who came into the saloon after her son. The wound is in the upper right arm, and dreading the pain it was not cauterized, consequently blood poison has set in and the unfortunate woman is in danger of losing her arm at least. This morning she lodged a complaint against Kivlan, who surrendered the dog rather than be arrested, especially as the animal was unlicensed. Mrs. Kivlan said she came in. and seeing her son at the table with the dog at his feet, kicked the latter out of the way and threw a tunnel at hor son, who ran out the back door. The dog resenting the kick flew at her. seizing her by the arm and holding her until taken off by his master. Some time before noon today, Dr. Watts came to the station, and with his assistant took the dog out in the yard, where a solect group had assembled to witness the execution. The beast evidently susoeeted something wrong, for he looked pleaciuarly at ins captors, and wagged his tail frantically. trying to make friends with all present, he was thon taken in hand, and while the assistant held his head up the doctor poured a lot of prepared prussio acid down his throat, lhe dog gave a whine and fell over on his side, giving a piercing howl as he did so. The poison had its fatal effect in rive seconds alter being administered. Mrs. Houghtou, who is an aunt of Inspec tor Houghton, witnessed the event, and expressed much satisfaction at the dog's ueain. SALEM.

The regular monthly meeting of Robert Howard Assem bly; Knights of Labor, formerly known as the Fall River Mule Spinners' Association, will be held tomorrow night Under the heading, "An injury to One is the Cause of All," SecretaryHoward issues the following circular this morning: Iellow-workmen In the midst of good trade we regret to hear so many complaints of bad spinning, and the consequent falling off in wages. There are two causes which, in a great measure, account for the grievances. One is that where ring spin ning has been introduced for the manufac ture of warp yarn, finer counts are spun on the mules, and the frame yarn is run heavier. This means easier labor on the ring frames at tho expense of the mule spinner, who is compelled to labor harder for less wages than obtained formerly. The other cause assigned is that all the strips and flies and other kinds of waste are put into the mixings of cotton which the filling on the spinning mules is spun from. The The causes, combined with the adverse weather of the summer months, are enough to furnish ample Cause for the Complaints Made Another absurdity is for corporations to attempt to spin 42s and 44s counts out of the same quality of cotton and the same hank-roving as 36s are spun from. Spinning 3Cs out of a 4-hank roving would give 9 of a draft, as 4x9 3fi; hut spinning 44s counts out of a 4-bank would be 11 of a draft, as 11x444. Any practicat man in the art of cotton spinning knows lull well that there cannot be good spinning with an lioladraught in the rollers, nor that the same amount of money can be earned by the SDinners with the same price per 100 hanks for spinning 44s counts as what is paid for 40s. These matters are deserving ot the consideration ot the mill treasurer, ana by proper attention to mixings, draughts, speed and prices much of tho uneasiness witnessed among spinners in lua past wouiu be ooviatetl in the future. e have no desire to be at war with our employers, being aware of the fact that it is both to the interest of them and us that we should work in harmony together. All we desire is to be treated ike men. and, when a complaint is made, to have the matter thoroughly investigated, and if good grounds are found for the cause of complaint.that proper steps should be taken to remedy it. It is true in some instances that men when elevated to a position in the mills think they know everything, and will hardly con descend to come off their high horse to listen to The Comprint of as Overworked Oper ative, or if they do, it goes in at one ear and out at the other, and the result is, when the complaints receive no consideration, petty strikes. We trust that a better understanding may be arrived at m tbe near future between employes and employers and otlier mill otnt'iais also, for much of the misrepresentation to which we all h:ive hepn been subjected to the past is owing to our being too lar apart Irom one another. Trade has revived surprisingly since the advent ot 188G. Middling cotton can be purchased at present lor 9 7-1 h cents per pound, and print cloth is selling at 3a cents per yard strong, while undoubtedly s.poi saies are commanding a higher price than this.

Ward & Co. say: There were no prominent bears in sight yesteraay, ana tne nroKers say that there are none ot any calibre anywhere iust now. except two or three room traders, who occasionally sell a few shorts and make a great noise about It. Consequently nobody regards the reaction in. prices on Saturday as indicative of a bear market, ana leading traders and brokers of standing told their friends yesterday that the bank statement oi baturday was noth ing to sell stocks on, and so the gossip over bunaay was ouiiisn instead ot bearish. Aotwitnstanding the lower prices matte at the end or the day a good many operators and traders, who have been fighting the rise ail summer, seem to have switched over in the wake of the ISevr York Times within a rlav or two. and are now talking bullish for the first time, and confess that there is no pros pect ot pronts on short saies lor soma time to come, .they say that all of the capital and leading operators here are bullish, and this includes the Drexe -Morgan's syndi cate, Tvewcomo, white, Kennedy, Armour.

Wallingford Townspeople Greatly Excited. Tiieiry That the Shoe-Box Victim is Albert J. Cooley f Durham. Were His Limbs Removed to Conceal Tattoo Harks? New Haven, Conn., August 9. Walling ford has never been In such a state of ex citement, and even the old residents have stopped talking about the big tornado of 1878.. Old men stand on the corners ot the streets, and with hickory canes in their hands bring them down on the sidewalk with emphasis as they relate their theories about the ghastly find of yesterday. They know all about it, but there are two important facts on which they are at present a little at sea, and they are these: They cannot tell the name of the man who was killed, nor can they ten the name of the mur derer. Barring these two facts they are all Cight, and have got the mystery at their fingers' ends. The most important men in the borough today are Edward and Joseph Terrill and Joseph Samson, who yesterday, with the aid of the sharp olefactories of a little black and ' yellow dog. brought the areadlul shoe - box mys tery to light They have each told the story nearly 100 times, and it is to their credit that they tell it correctly. Dr. McGaughey, the medical examiner. has also undergone much questioning, and it he does not agree with the theories of some of the wiseacres, they get together and say among themselves that be is not possessed of the best judgment This morning there were what looked likn clews to the identity of the body. It was thought it might be the remains of one Albert J. Cooley ot Durham, who, as an invalid member of one ot the Connecticut regiments, lately obtained back pension money, amounting toover $1600. He was in tms city about nve weeks ago. and since that time hasn't been seen or heard of at home. It was supposed, np Durham way, that he, never having had that amount of money before, had made up his mind that he would have a military reunion all by himself, and that he had gone either to New York or Boston. or perhaps out West before he finally came home. But it it were Cooley's remains he must have been alive within a week, and how he could be in the vicinity of Wallingford for that length of time and not be seen or identified passes all comprehension. $Th Shoe-Bx Victim has been alive within four or five days at least, and was by some mangling butcher put into the box in less than ten minutes after life was extinct, for the body had bled a large quantity from the decapitation and from cutting off tbe legs and arms. This also knocks another theory all to pieces that some of tbe wiseacres this morning express that the body had been in tbe hands of medical students. Had this been the case they would not have left the body, for that is said to be of the most value to the energetic young sawbones, who do not hesitate to despoil graves in order to secure subjects. Besides, they would have some easier way of disposing of tbe remains than this. Whoever placed tbe remains there was possessed 0f much more daring than judgment U i? i lua 4." I the body away.ana then.when it was night. or he did not tear detection, he would go and bury it. To leave a shoe box in a clump of bushes only partly covered with leaves is a very clumsy piece of business. But there is nothing to identify the body by at all. 1 here is not a shred ot clothing on tbe corpse, and the most careful search fails to find anything in the vicinitv. Even the missing - head and legs and arms might anora some clew. The people of this place may be wiser within twenty-four hours, after a thorough examination has been made by Coroner Eli Mix of this city. If they are not it may be davs or weeks, or it may be never. Mean. time everybody is on the aui vive. The trunk of the unfortunate victim this morning was brought to town and washed. and carefully examined. It is now thought to have been the boay oi uooiey. At least it resembles him in some particulars. Cooley was at work tor Charles H. Youngs, at x aiesvuie. wooiey naa a cast in nis eye. ana Wsi Tsvttoed on Iteth arms, and his left loot was somewhat da. formed. It is thought that his murderers. knowing that he would be easily identified. cut off his head and limbs so as to defy all efforts at identification. Many younz and some middlA-ticc,! anil even old men are today subjects of the se verest scrutiny, mere nas been incendiarism and two or three hiirh- way robberies, and those who were suspected at that time are carefully watched today, l nere are at least a dozen men. who, if they were to attempt to take the train out ot town m any direction todav, would suddenly find their personal ii Deny curtailed, mere may he arrests before night, but as vet the authorities nr rather reticent They are very willing to receive iniormation out very loath to im part it. It is now believed that it must have been the work of some of the residents of Wallingford. But there is no missing mnn except Coolev. Hardly any work is done today.and every body is busy discussing the matter. From the adjoining towns the residents are pour ing in as tne details ot the hnrrnr nrHi. vulged.

CIndlanapolis Journal. Dogs that stay about saloons much of the time very often acquire a taste for beer by drinking water into which a littlo beer is poured. The appetite for it grows until thoy relish pure beer. Tbey often become very fat from drluking it. The most famous of the dog tipplers ever in the city was .lack, a big mastilf, owned by John Brough. He long ago sunk into a drunkard's grave, lhe Circle House saloon was his fa fori to loafing placo.and he a was sort of hail follow among the human drinkers who congregated there. He would wag his tail and beg for beer when he saw any one drinking, and if his prayer was not answered he would go behind the counter and lap from the dripptnes in the bucket. He would sometimes get so drunk that he would walk on both sides of the pavement when he got out His feet would be put out slowly and fumblingly, the four ot them being pushed far out to four points of the compass to keep him from falling.
