St. 1PAUL, Aug. 29.—One of the most important faili-oftd law suits that has been tried here in some time was begutt during the day before Judge Sanboi-n* sitting in the tThited States circuit court. It is tho injunction suit of Thomas W. Peafsall* a stockholder i!i he Great Northern riailfoadi to restrain he officers of that road from carrying through Ihe deal foi? the control of the Northern faciflc. As far as the direct interests of (he parties to the action att concerned the suit is hot of materiil consequence, but Ihe final outcome « expected to be so faf-reaching in its effect and the public interest in thereof ganissatiou scheme is so great that the action becomes of the utmost import ance. The public inierest is shown by the large number of leading attorneys who ate spectators at the hearing. Asks an Injunction. Pearsfeill is the holder of 500 shares of Great Northern stock, rhe faco value of which is $100 per share, and he asks fol 4 the injunction on the ground that Ins interests are likely to suffer if tho Great Northern is permitted to guarantee the interest on the bonds of the Northern Pacific, ns (he reorganization scheme proposes. The Great Northern officials have maintained (hat (he suit was only a friendly action to settle the legal difficulties in the way of carrying out the proposed consolidation, but tho manner in which the plaintiff and his attorney-3 are fighting the case seems to prove the contrary. . • Attorney General Childs is an interested spectator from the jury box, being present to look after the interests of the state. President Hill himself is also present, and seated all around are a number of leading attorneys of the city, who drop in occasionally to watch the proceedings. The Argument Begun. Attorney Kellogg read the answer to the complaint in which defendant holds that the consummation of the deal with the Northern Pacific would result most advantageously to the Great Northern and would not depreciate tho value^of the stock as plaintiff C9nteuds. Attorney Horn then began his address for the plaintiff, going into the history of the roads at some length. He declared the two systems were competitive lines and the proposition to consolidate was in violation of the statutes. Colonel Grover followed Mr. Horn in a brief statement of the case for the defense, leaving (lie main argument to Senator Davis. Ths senator began speaking just before adjournment ^aud the bulk of his argument was confined to quotations from decisions in cases involving points similar to those raised in this one. frost sivc-s sweet f*aee to evefy ttfiag thing: Tho waverlns robin that ia space baa flown Finds its sr.ffe nest; tho pferta of roses sown Waits sure in darimesa for tho toneli of spring; The tendrils of the ivy blindly cling, Stretching their l-rovrci thivada towaru tto •vfs.ll v.nkaown .

PAUL, Aug. 80.—Senator Davis continued his argument in the_ Great Northern injunction case' m the United States circuit court Thursday, occupying the entire forenoon. He was followed by C. A. Severance and E. P. Sanborn for the defense. In closing his argument Senator Davis referred to the right of consolidation granted by the charter, and read from authorities as to the meaning of consolidation in a legal sense There had been a great deal of talk to the effect that .what was proposed was an amalgamation of the two systems, but this was not true. • All that was proposed was a (raffle agreement for mutual advantage. Neither road would lose its identity. But even if one should be swallowed up by tho other there would be nothing illegal in it, according to the terms of the charter. ---. f ^ f Jt-*- -*--*-*:_*- ^-'"Yrr^^"^ i ^^vr^^F^-ssaaa g2"7-&29 ANN ST, . liQNE DOOR WEST OF NASSAU.'

Then came a flash and a report, and nl- fnost simultaneously with the rebound of his immense rifle the huge, crouching lioness, the black lioness, hurled herself upon him. He was borne down as if by an avalanche. He had missed. Why? For this reason : A.S he aimed between her eyes out of them flashed a strange, strange light that quivered the core of his being i a light that unnerved his hand and with ered his desire to kill. c And it smote him not with fear—ior Karl had slain many lions, wid his nerves were as steel—but it smote him with f-uddeii, overwhelming remorse. Thus he, tho mighty hunter, was shaken and marie to send his bullet fiy ing wide. AIK! he lay in the grip of death. Though ho felt that his end had come, he had that clearness and poise of mind which come in .supreme moments. The uoiscnie breath of the lioness burned his face as he lay crushed into the sand by her weight. He was waiting, with eyes closed, for the beginning of the end, that hideous beginning, but a calm was in his soul, a strange calm. He felt at rest, at peace. There was a pause. Suddenly the lion snarled, and Karl opened his eyes. Ah, again that weird, reproaching light I It streamed from the glaring, yel low eyes. Into their depths he gazed and gazed till his mind partly left him. No more he thought of death. . And now the eyes became a piercing blaze of light, which grew and grew till Karl saw before him a broad, shining space. In the distance flashed u, scene. And the soul of the hunter flew toward it. This was the scene:' Humans filled a, vast amphitheater. Thoy shook it shouting. Fearsome was this shouting, even as the howl of a myriad pack of wolves. On the faces was the look of glee—that glee indescribable—that comes when the passion for blood spilling fills the soul. This passion was upon all—all, from emperor to slave. Man was transformed to a human wolf. The wish to kill or see killed linked, bound all. The impulse of Cain made all akin._ It was a feast day to the gods in Rome, and a mighty, yelling multitude had gathered together to do them homage by seeing a man fight with and kill a man, by seeing a man wait for the signal that might bid him drive his gladius into the heart of a beloved comrade, by seeing a man fight with a beast. Their gods were honored by the flowing and flying of blood. Huge, huge sport to watch it! And yonder Nero sat, swathed in purple. His eyes gleamed as he witnessed the glorious sport. Prolonged was the shouting, because Tarpus, a favorite gladiator, had just killed, in single combat, with the gladi- us, his third man. He was now about to fight yonder Numidian lioness. She was striving to burst the bars of her cage, f or she had been without food for three days. A fine fellow was Tarpus, with waving, yellow hair that hung afar down his back. Frank was his face, bold was the glance of his blue eye, and he was great of stature. And Karl was Tarpus. "Curse the Roman cowards!" the gladiator muttered as he waited, heedless and resentful of the ovation he was receiving, for the black lioness to be let forth into the arena. "Oh, to think that I obeyed their cruel mandate that bade me slay my comrade, Davoro—Davoro, who risked his life for mine in the campaign ! But he smiled in my face, as I bent over him, and said, 'Strike deep, my Tarpus, if thou lovest me!' and I drove the full of my blade through bis heart. Oh, I, of all men—I, who loved him, thus to have slain him 1 Oh, the •flghW-the fight—it is with me yet! Da- voro, who was bound to me by ties oft clos0r than the ties of blood, stands be, fore roe, his gladius in hand, We cross hlades, but our eyes meet not, and lo! before I kn.ow aught, he is lying on the gaud beneath me, while I stand o'er him with uplifted b^tde, Then I look; up to ,ypnder sea of coward faces, and gee' thumbs which point downward, Aye around and aro\wd I look, but frojaqU sides the vile gestures come, crowding, pvevwbelmins my soul.

She pa-osed, turn:::;: her l.i-a-1 and sniffing the air. Tarpus walked straight toward her. Suddenly she noticed him, and she bounded, roaring, almost to his side. She crouched for a final spring, and Tarpus, sinking on one knee, and with gladius ready, prepared to fight to the death. The vast crowd was hushed, awaiting breathlessly the instant when the brute and the man would ineet ir, the death struggle. _ But here occurred a,thiug inexplicable. , . . As the eyes of theliobess and the mar, met both paused suddenly and remained as if transfixed, the man kneeling, the lioness crouching. What had happened? Why did she uot obey the prompting of her instinct to rend him asunder? Did some subtle, sudden power stay her? What spell was Working? What was the bond that bound this man and beast? Could it be that they were kindred souls, who were oiicc together, and who recognized each other? Who could tell? But whatever the spell or bond it had a strange effect upon Tarpuf, for he, With u look in his f nee indescribable, stoctl upright, and laying his hand upon the lioness walked over with her to the place where Nero nat and insulted and reviled him. Then he became frenzied, and culled loudly for the Romans to come and kill him—the lioness roaring tho while. ., All were amazed and terrified, bure- ly a weird, nameless happening! Their hearts were cold with fear. And archers were ordered out. They killed the gladiator and the lioness with their arrows. ****** A party of French soldiers, who were stationed at n post in the interior of Algeria, came across a man uninjured, but- lying senseless in the sand.

An old English dungeon has been brought,to light by tho tearing down of a building in the rear of a pickle factory 011 Spruce street, below Second. The building is thought to have been more than 800 years old. Every brick in it •svas brought from England, and the building was once the pride of the little colony that lived here. It was originally, it is said, the courthouse of the settlement, and underneath the ground were those dungeons or cells in which prisoners were kept. It is supposed that the cells were used as temporary_places of confinement, and not for prisoners serving long terms, much the s-ame as the "lockups" or station houses• of to day. The bricks ore as solid as in the days of old and will be used again, in another building. -The old house has been burned out several times, but the walls were never damaged much. The whole neighborhood is an interesting one. The building adjoining the one torn down has a fourth floor, which is windowless. Instead of the usual windows it has portholes, slanting downward, from which, "in days of old, when knights were bold," men probably picked off prowling Indians or enemies of some kind. —Philadelphia Press. Sterne's Plagiarisms. The following instance of Sterne's unblushing "conveying" has not, I think, been hitherto recorded. In "Tristram Shandy," volume 1, chapter 12, is the following well known passage: "When to gratify a private appetite, it is once resolved upon that an innocent and a, helpless creature shall be sacrificed, 'tis an easy matter to pickup sticks enough from any thicket where it has strayed to make a fire to offer it up with." In the introduction to "Baconiana, London, 1679, T. T.—i. e., Dr. Thomas Teuison, in comment on Bacon's words to King James, "I wish that as lam the first, so I may be the last of sacrifices in your times," writes as follows (page 16): "And when from private Appetite, it is resolv'd that a Creature shall be sacrificed; it is easie to pick up sticks enough, from any Thicket whither it hath straied, to make a Fire to offer it with,"' There could uot be a more audacious example of literary theft,—Notes and Queries. . Pronunciation of ««Bicyole.» The constantly growing bicycle fad calls attention to $he large number of cases of mispronunciation of the word "bicycle," There is a-certain glass of people, particularly New York's fashionable set, which insists upon giving tfce "y" ft long sound, as ™ "—^ " forgetting that» prefix or .„.. changes the sound of the vowel M y, < Still Qtbers go to the othe? extreme and give the "7" thesouad °* ^i bu * w e fcest usage makes the «T" Phort asd pronounces the word "bi-wW. 11 But even-ajnpng those who give the "y" *-- hfl plage the accent on the pe<?oo4 •" •' - "sn 1 thefirst,where it ,.,„. ..wdflomw iatp sm>h as Mbioyeje," it is well to. }e&?» il poweotJv.-wTrpy Tiroes, SIMPLIFIED ELOCUTION.
