The will of tfa-e'late George'W. Childs leaves all his property to-hisjwidow. His property is .merely described as personal property worth over §100,000 and real estate worth over $100,000. The old corvette Kcarsarge was wrecked on Roncador redf, about two hundred miles north-east of Blueflelds, Nicaragua, while en route from Port Au Prince, Uayti, to Blueflelds. The officers and crew were saved. On the raonning of the 7th the insurgent war vessel Aquidaban appeared oil Fort Santa'Cruz, at thO'Ontrance to the bay of Rio Janeiro ;and steamed boldly into the .channel, lined by a dozen government forts. Firing at once began, the Aquidaban deigning no reply until-she reached .the narrowest portion of the channel, when she replied in kind and stiff firing was kept up until she had ridden safely out of range of the forts .and was resting in Bio bay. Although 300 shots were tired at short range .no damage was done. Later the rebel fleet opened fire on Bio, and during- .the firing four were killed. The steamer iPeru, which arrived on the 6th, brings Japan news to January 22. The Japan Daily Herald, speaking ot the Hawaiian question, says editorially that .a telegram was sent to President Cleveland from the Japanese emperor, informing him that his imperial majesty intends 'to restore the queen of Hawaii to her throne. The paper advises that three or four Japanese men-of-war-be sent to Honolulu with a peremptory demand for the restoration of the queeh, and says Japan has the right to interfere foi the protection of the Japanese on the islands. As the quickest method of bringing about the adjournment of the'Colorado legislature, the senate agreed to con sider bills that have been or may be passed by the house. The sundry civil approptiation bill as reported to the house, appropriates a total of 8132,2,91.382 for' the fiscal year 1895.

The greatest saving is in the item of river aud harbor work, for carrying on of which $8,300,000 is recommended, while for 1894 the amount was $14,100,153. For buildings and grounds the appropriation drops to $047,000 from $1,077,500 for 1884, although the estimates for 1895 were 81,455,135. Other important reductions from 1894 in current expenses are: Artificial limbs for soldiers, from $047,000 to $440,000; lighthouses, from $389, 500 to $280,600. The principal new appropriation is $150,000 for new vessels for the revenue service, OJ the river and harbor items $3.415,000 is to meet contracts for improving the Mississippi and Missouri rivers.

The vote was 9 to a Vaillant, the anarchist who threw the bomb in the French chamber of deputies on December 8, was guillo- t-iued on the morning of the 5th. 1'welve'thousand people witnessed the execution.

Even the most -conservative medical journals now'admit the .marvelous results reported by the thirty thousand physicians (prescribing Amick's medicines are nob exaggerated. The Coctor of Hygiene, of which Dr, Cyrus Edsonjuhief of the NewYork state board of'health is the editor, Says in its last issme: "-We have delayed for something over a-year giving notice to the Amick treatment for consumption, because, 'as the formula was not given to the'profession, time alone would demonstrate-whether it merited condemnation or-endorsement. With the eva- donce which-month after month hasac- cumulated-we are obliged to admit the preponderance-Of testimony favors -Dr. AmidU's claims, and in the face of results reported from physicians who it anything were rather disposed against the treatment at the beginning, the claims -of the Cincinnati >physician are shown <o have been within the bounds of truth and conservatism. He has from the first shown on evidently sincere desire to have crucial and impartial tests made of the treatment by all physicians, and to this end he still distributes broadcast free test packages of his medicines, each of which must represent -quite a little money. All conscientious physicians-admit themselves powerless to cope with this destroyer of life except with the Amick treatment, and therefore feel bound to give it to patients under their care, and the fact that any person with luttg trouble can obtain-sufticienb of tho .medicines to show ijust what they will do for each sufferer without cost proves conclusively that Dr. Amick knows the result will be favorable." _ 'BREAKS THE R'OPE.

The ix>pe broke at. the first drop without ill .any way injuring Purvis. The spectators interceded in such a manner as to induce the sheriff to refuse to proceed with the hanging. An effort will now be made to secure executive clemency.

LOUISVIM.K, Ky., Feb. 5.— The old Lincoln homestead in Larue county has been purchased by a syndicate of TContuckiuns who expect to beautify the place into a park and then to donate it to the government as a national park. LITERARY NOTES. An article of unusual interest has resulted from an expedition on bahall of Scribner's Magazine made by Joel Chandler Harris in company with a skillful artist, Daniel Smith, to the scene of "The Sea Island Hurricanes, off the coast of South Carolina, It was this strange region which was devas- ta'ed by the grout storms last autumn, which killed 3,000 people and lelt 30,000 homeless. The ever-amusing and inconsequential Mrs. Roberts appears again in the pages of the February Harper's, through the medium of a now i'arce by Mr. W. D. Howells, called "A Master piece of Diplomacy." Itscomplieatious grow from thebiuumouingof physicians of the old and now schools to attune the youthful heir of the Robertses, who is supposed by Mrs. Roberts to be threatened with cholera. The "character sketch" of the Review of Reviews for February is an ap. preciative summary by Grant Allen o: the life work of the late Professor Tyn dall. Tyndall, liice not a few othei great men in British science and liter alure, was an Irishman, and Mr. Aller traces the influence of Celtic descent upon the character and achievement o the great physicist, and notes some interesting facts regarding his personal ity. The color plates of The Art Amateu for February are an exquisitely natura stu'dy of pink roses—strikingly decep tive in its resemblance to the origina oil painting—and a "Sunset on the Sound" in water colors. The working designs in the supplement are a treas ure.for the china and glass painter the wood carver and the lover of ar needlework. Alulmma Populist* Meet. BlBMlNQHAM, Ala-, Feb. 10.— The Jef- ferspnian democrats, or IKolbites, and populates held a joint state convention fcere yesterday and formed an alliance.

Pi Worst Storm on Uncord Prevalent the Mcnninlnee Region. MKNOMINKK, Mich., Fob. J2.—A terrific wind and snow storm raged froai early morn and continued with increasing fury. Several lumber piles and u number of sheds have been blown ilown. Street travel is completely blocked. It is the worst storm ever experienced on Green Bay within the muuiory of the earliest settlers.

Jtuyul Huukwhoat*. For generations it has bee.n the custom to mix the batter for buckwheat cakes with yeast or emptyings, retaining a portion of the batter left over from one morning to raise the cakes •for the following day. If kept loo warm, or not used promptly, this batter becomes excessively sour and objectionable. Buckwheat cakes raised by this means are more often sour or heavy than light and sweet. If eaten daily they distress the stomach and cause skin eruptions and itching. Instead of the old fashioned way we have been making buckwheat cakes this winter with Royal Baiting Powder, mixing the batter fresh daily, and find the result wonderfully satisfactory They are uniformly light and sweet more palatable and wholesome, and can be eaten continuously without the slightest digestive inconvenience. Besides they are mixed and baked in a moment,' requiring no time to rise. Following is the receipt used; Two cups of purw buckwheat flour (not "prepared" or mixed); one cup ol wheat flour, two tablespoons of Royal Baking Powder and one half teaspoon fill of" salt, all sifted well together. Mix with milk into a thin batter am bake at once on a hot griddle, Once properly tested from this receipt, no other buckwheat will find its way your table.—Domestic Cookery.

"The earl of Clove presents his compliments to Lady Evolyne Wyn J to i'." ho wrote, "and desires to explain a circumstance which, ho is afraid, must have surprised Lady Evolyno. Lord Clevo is afflicted with loss of memory, tho result of some wounds in tho head. It was, therefore his misfortune, and not his fault, if ho did not recognize Lady Evelyns Wyntor this afternoon, lip hopes that this apology will. bo His oxcuso, and that Lady Evelyno Wynter will bcliovo .that Lord Clevo could not possibly have acted towards her in any spirit of discourtesy." • * ' "It's jest a bit soapy ,_ ain't itP" Miss Lucy exclaimed, when the young g-ontloinan had dotted all his "1's" and crossed all his "t's," "an' it's a little smeary liko* maple sugar,. when yew get too much, of it on. yowr spoon. I guess she's a honsum young woman. Waal, it ain't no matter." With that sho danced away, apparently unburdened by though tf illness or care. That was all outward show, however; all nervous determination not to show to the man she loved how much sho loved him. If it had boon possible for a prying oyo to penetrate into Lucy's chamber that night, it would have found her walking up and down the softly-carpeted lloor like a caged panther. ' Her bosom heaved, she wrung her tiny hands with !i nervous grip and big tears wore llowino- down her cheeks. At last sho Hung herself on her knees [>y the bedside, and buried her head on the coverlet, whilst the soft masses of her hair shower around lior. sobbed and sobbed, would break. On a sudden, sho jumped up in a silent fury, both against herself and the fortune which oppressed her. She gnashed her white tooth and tore at her hair. God!" sho cried, "don't try mo too severely. I'm. only a woman after all, and it'll soon bo more than I can bear. What havo T. done, how have I sinned, to deserve it all?" The paroxysm of her grief prostrated her, and sho gradually sank on her knees, and thence on tlio lloor, whore nor lissome figure lay extended, white and cold as tho garments which sparsely covered her, while her babbling lips murmured: "What havo I done? What have I done? What havo I done!' What have I done?" Even tho squalid ugliness of London architecture could not rob a summer morning of its oarly roseate beauty, and Lucy could sea the first softly blushing light of day, creeping from across tho housetops, through the aperture between her curtains, ore sho recovered her wonted composure. Sho wont into her dressing- room and sponged herself with cold water. The touch of tho refreshing- element scorned' to bring back vigor of mind and elasticity of body, and the previously- mentioned prying intruder had ho seen Miss Lucy only at that moment would havo doomed her tho most hardened of cynics. "Waal, it's jest another slice o' my luck, I s'poso," sho said as sho splashed and Hung tho water about her in all directions; "an 1 what cay'nt bo cured 's got to bo endured. I've gono that fur, an' I'll jest see it out, 1 reckon." Five mill ates afterward, her head resting on her sun-bronzed arm, and her bosom moving 1 in as tranquil a sloop as a child might enjoy, Lucy's mind was at rest. Tho first few days of Lord Clove's sojourn in London passed swiftly amidst tho stress of the ordinary occupations of a gentleman of fortune who has just entered into possession of his property. Solicitors had to bo consulted, interviews had to be gi'.uitod to bailiffs, stewards and tenants; tradesmen's bills, loft unpaid by tho previous bearer of the title, had to ba checked and settled; and amid tho hurry and scurry of all this mattor-of-htot occupation, Lord Clove found but little time to abandon himself to the round of gaieties temptingly baited for him by liolgravian society, much less to fo low the regular giddy whirl of fashion's daily rites. He would breakfast with Lucy, and then pass hours and hours with those who had business with him, and a hasty luncheon would be succeeded by further work. Ho could ba,roly snatch so much of tho daily sunshine as to tako Lucy for an afternoon rido in tho Row. Tho fashionable equestrian, promenade had seen few such horsewomen as that daughter of the Kockies. She sat on, her horse as if she had been born on it, and oucc when h.or mount, frightened beyond measure by such a trifle as a flaring . silk parasol polced^into its face by a silly woman, plunged and reared, and wheeled as if iK would never recover its equanimity/ Lucy habit who so of tea acnom- Lord Clove. In the meantime, Lord Cleve had endeavored to learn from Lucy,' why (the had held no communication, and wished to hold n'o communication, with her father and cousin. Her reply was simple " enough. Sho said that she hated her cousin, an6 that she had had a deadly quarrel with her father, and had vowed never to live with them again. In answer to more pressing enquiries, she turned up her big blue eyes at him and looked into his eyes with such a tender pleading, that ho had not tho courage to persist. "Doii't ask more," she begged, fend ho who was so deeply indebted to her was happy to look into the face that bore such a heavenly stamp of truth, and, by one deep gaze, to silence tho promptings of curiosity. On the other hand, the Maclanes, George and David, Gcomod to take no trouble to reopen intercourse with Lucy. When tho girl had first disappeared from the hut in tho mountains, they explained Lucy's absence by the statement that she had gone oh' with a young man, Heaven only know whither, and that Dick Ashland had -gone away with tho pair. Lucy's many admirers came to tho conclusion that tho girl whom they had thought unconquerable had, after all, turned out a woman like the rest of the prairie wenches, and had fallen, a prey to tho 'insinuating speeches of a handsome young stranger. From that moment, the interest in hei 1 welfare disappeared. Dave made an imposing pretense of a broken heart, but George brazenly asserted that his daughter, having left tho parental roof without his authority, might lie on the bed she had made for herself, for all ho cared. The result of this lino of conduct was that but little enquiry was made after the fate of the supposed fugitives. The Maclanos had been wise enough in their generation to allow a sufficient stretch of time—more than a year, in fact—to olapso before proclaiming their discovery to tho world. In tho meantime, they had taken all the necessary steps to socuvo to themselves tho safe and undisputed possession of the land that thus teemed with wealth. The rod-lianded Fortune smiled, and, by her guilty leor, Lucy was, and remained forgotten. Nearly three weeks had passed since Lord Clove's arrival iu London, and he had not, for a second time, sot eyes on Lady Evelyne Wyntei' or tho Maclanes. Ho had taken part in none of society's ceremonials, until, one afternoon, in company with Mr. Quenthelm, he strolled into tho Royal horticultural society's grounds at South Kensington, where a charity fete was being hold. The lovely gardens were ablaze with the choicest bloom and green, au'd filled by a fashionable throng 1 . Delicate, highborn ladies hawked trinkets and triiles, whilst others had, for tho nonce, transformed themselves into stall-tenders and barmaids. Lord Clevo and Mr. Quenthelm sauntered up and down tho broad walks, stopping here and there to purchase or to chat, for, although the young carl knew few porsoas, his companion had some measure of acquaintance with most. Quito a buzz of excitement lollowod their footsteps, as everybody wanted to havo n look at tho young nobleman, whoso romantic carenr, and perhaps, also his bachelor condition, made him so very interesting. Eye-glasses were raised, and opera-glasses wore pointed with but slight ceremony, and Herbert, to escape, if possible, from tho well-bred rudeness which dogged him, walked leisurely with his companion towards a more secluded part of tho grounds. Ho thus managed to free himself from tho starers who mobbed him, and was about to express tohis companioning satisfaction at tho result, when ho hoard himself addressed by name. "Lord Clove, won't you buy something from me?" Ho turned and found that tho speaker was no less a person than Lady Evolyno Wyntor. "Do buy nomething 1 , Lord Clove,'' the lady chatted on, exhibiting i basket with a hetorogcuous profusion of oddities and usclessnossos. "It is for a charity, you know—a hospital- most deserving'." With that the you,ng- lady dipped into her assortment of wares, ant produced a luiud-emproidored eigai case. "Only five pounds, Lord Clevo and it's such a deserving charity. : know you won't refuse mo." Lord Cleve naturally neither coulc nor did refuse. He counted out the live sovereigns, and as ho did so ho looked into my lady's languidly smiling 1 oyes. They wore big 1 , and they were blue, tuid although were neither as blue as Lucy's, Lord them very beautiful. they his nor as Cleve though Lady Evelyne seemed so little ruffled by tbe by-staaders rfise<| capers F|nging was not as pretty as Lucy—that sho could not possibly be—but Lord Clcv ! thought she was as handsome a young I woman—next to Lucy—as he hac seen iu his life. As he placed the coins on tho young lady's extondec palm, his linger tips barely touclic< the soft and velvety hand, am whether it wero from unison of feel ing-, or just for the fun of tho thing both Lady Evelyne and Herber smiled. The young 1 lady had no difficulty ii admitting 1 that the young earl was t handsome example of distinguislae manhood, and harmony of sentimen betvveen the pair was quickly so fai established that they began to chat apparently in fun, of their, as they called, it, past aad forgotten, et t any *ate, that she did not op.m »H et batteries of witchery to rokhnll* n the young earl's heart the kmdif memory which he had so uufortu- ately lost. "For shame," MM. jrundy will say, "that brazen younsr roman is engased to Mtv David laclane," and M : rs. Grundy is par- ectly right. It was wrong 1 . Ibe oung lady herself stated that fact^to /oi'd"cieve, with a sly glance at him nd another at Mr. Quenthelm. und , faint pretense of wishing to leave. >ord Cleve, however, found Lady :velyue's society charming, and the oung lady, on her Bide, had forgot- en all about her self-imposed duties ,s a vendor on behalf of charity. She nought the young man had. much, mproved by his long residence, ibroad, and his manner towards hot* imply delightful. In the result, tho. ;onversation degenerated into a not oo harmless fiirtation, which wa» copt within bounds by tho opportune resence of Mr. Quentholm. As it vas, they became so interested by ach other's converse that they did lot notice the approach of Lady jwendale, who, accompanied by lossrs. George and David Maclane, topped for some seconds in front or he little group without.jeither of the hreo being aware of'her presence. ..ady Gwendalo acted as a cautious •eneral; sho neither appeared to ap- irovo nor to rebuke; sho did not even vinco astonishment. She was, nev- rtheless, just a trifle afraid, that a ivord might escape from her daugh- er's lips which could be miscon- trued 'by Mr. Maclano, and there- ore ended the slight temporary cm- arrassment by saying 1 — "My dear, Mr. Maclano has been ooking for you all over tho gardens." Then, seeing that the young arl rose and bowed, sho held out her land. "Lord Clevo," she said,in her )laudest tones, "you must allow me o introduce myself, for I am aware .hat you have most likely forgotten no. I am Lady Gwendalo, and your mother was one of iny earliest and Loarest friends." Tho young man, taken aback by icr ladyship's sucldou apparition,and ven more by the presence of \tlie wo Americans, whoso cold gazo acemed to penetrate him like some- aig uncanny or inexplicably loathsome—he know not why—stammered few incoherent words. The mo- nent afterwards ho chid*d himself 'or his seemingly unreasonable dis- iko to the Maclanes. "Now that you know mo," con- inued Lady Gwendale, in her brightest mood, "you must allow mo to in- ;roduce to you my future son-in-law, Ir. David Maclane." At these words Lord Cleve discov- rod a new, and to him reasonable, excuse for disliking 1 the young Westerner. Ho was shortly to marry ,ady Evelyno Wynter, and, strange as it may seem, tho young earl suddenly considered this a personal iu- ury. David Maclane, in return, .looked at tho young 1 Englishman as if he ould have poisoned him. "I havo an idea," said Lord Clevo- to Mr. Quenthelm, as they were walking back, "quite a confused idea, but still an idea, that I havo met these men before. I wish Lucy wore not so reticent on tho subject. The pity is that the more I try to- think the-loss my brain will lend itself to the work, and I generally break down hopelessly in any attempt of the kind." "Why don't you go and BOO Sir William Cuthbortson?" suggested,. Mr. Quouthelm. "He is tho great specialist in cases of this sort, and some of the cures he has mado are nothing- short of marvelous." "I don't think there is much chance for me," Herbert answered. "My injuries, I am afraid, are permanent. " "It cannot possibly do harm to try," the lawyer replied. "It is surely worth while." "I will tako your advice," exclaimed Herbert, with a hot aud sudden determination in his eyes. "I'll tjo and call upon Sir William. Cuthbertson to-morrow." [TO BE CONTINUED.] Origin of CUMiirn Kultt.
