TERBK HAUTE, Ind., May 2<J.—When a long west-bound freight train on the Big Four pulled in at 0 o'clock lust night the tops of the box cars were crovvded with miners. They were on their way from Coal LUuft's to Puna, 111., where, they said. 4,000 Illinois miners were assembled to try and persuade the men in the mines to join the strike. The train was Hide-tracked and the engine run to a safe distance. The officials of the road fiave called on the chief of police for protection. The wen were quiet, did no cheering, and only a few of them left the cars when they came to a stop. OHO of their leaders said that they had received a • request from the Illinois strikers to come over and camp out at Pana to get the men to leave off work there. There is some talk among the men of hoard ing the New York through passenger train which passes at 1:45 this morning. Chief Meagher has sent for Shenff Stout and Mayor Koss. At U o'clock it was reported that several hundred are on their way here team Clay county, as many from the south on the ISvansville and Terre Haute road, and more from Clinton to t&§ oortU op the Chicago and .Eastern Illinois. , WBAZJI., Ind., May £i> —The Chicago & Indiana Coal road . run a special train, to Coal JttufE yesterday after- pppn carrying hundreds of miners to ' the miners' mass-meeting to determine vo go to Pana, l\\. t and order wno are working in the "mines, there.

They 1, early yesterday and stood in !SS to put down afl uprising of j strikers all day, and as the sun Wentdown the soldiers and every citi- )n tiie .toWn outside the strikers a state of.aervoiis anxiety for i uprising might occur. The , Arrival of the militia was a great surprise to every one in the'town save . Mayor Matthiessen and Sheriff Taylor. - lt,notiOHly surprised the strikers, but greatly angered many of them, especially the Slavs. A mass meeting of -.Strikers .was called at the Turner hall ,at l ,fl.6'clock in the moraing. Some of ,the,more prominent strikers indulged afl .the .most violent incendiary und Anarchistic speeches and did everything in their power to incite their bellows to riot. .Mayor Matthiessen ttied to explain ,to th'e.rebellious element that he hud not the authority to bring back the prisoners. They had been arrested by •connty officials and c'oiild only be released by due process of law. He then advised ithe sinkers to quietly disperse. Mayor Matthiessen .addressed the meeting, but his speech seemed 1 rather,to irritate than quiet -the incendiary element, and as lie Jef t the Jiall they howled for the release of the two men imprisoned in the .county jail at Ottawa. The meeting finally ended .quietly. The local authorities have met .been able to learn if any of the strikers who indulged in the riot Thursday evening were killed. Deputy Sheriff Brennan ,<qf Ottawa, who took part in the conflict, said that he saw several'of the rioters fall and their fellows ' ca'rrying- them away. Sheriff Taylor is greatly improved and sent word from Ottawa that he would .come over here. Deputies Hoolihan and Dwyer, who were shot in the groin and thigh, are out of danger. Five companies of the militia arrived here about 9 o'clock in the morning in command of Col. Fred Bennett, of , Joliett on the Rock Island road. Late in the.afternoon another company arrived, making six in all. These forces are of the Third regiment of Illinois National Guard. The soldiers pitched camp on a plateau about a quarter of a mile east of the shaft where the riot occurred. A fracas occurred in the north part of the city, when a number of strikers ' severely ' beat and kicked a Polish mirier named Birkev?ski, whom they accused of being a spy. The man is likely to die from the effects of his injuries. A freight train on the Illinois Central railroad was ditched a few miles south of this city, near the Oglesby mine at 10 o'clock last night. None •were injured, though the train • was •wrecked. A committee of the strikers from local assembly No. 348, Knights of Labor, made a statement denying that the strikers were responsible 1'or the riot at La Salle mine. They blame the deputies The committee denies that any of the strikers ' made use of firearms, but declares that the deputies shot each other in their fright 111., May 30. rietinf coal miners from' t)tt* qttbtn afeested UerS by Sheriff HSlm and his deputies were Arraigned 'before Justid'e Andrews Jat6 last evening on charges of conspiracy, trespass and in» timidation and held to .6he grand jury {a boads rahgiiig 1 f~rom $loo to 8500 ertch.

Morrison, prcsideat.of the Odin Coat company, whose mines at Odin were saved from -desti-uction Thursday by the prompt action .of Sheriff Helm, came down to urge .that strict punishment be dealt out to the arrested men. The city, the .coal,companies and the railroad had a great .lo.t of witnesses here. At 3 o'clock last night another .assault was made by strikers on the office of the Big Four company. There happened, however, to be half a dozen deputies guarding the premises, and they quickly scattered the gang by taking a shot at thorn. Sheriff Helm received a telegram in the evening telling him that attempts had been made by strikers during the day to burn three or four bridges on the Cairo Short Line, between Duquoin and Carbondale.' Everything is quiet hero now. MANY DECATUK MINERS QUIT.

Oladstotte found her rneittoires one of the most noteworthy books of this end of the century, Dr. Lombroso thought he could study profitably in her writings the nerves which espe-' cially afflict our age, In reviews and papers everywhere she became a subject of discussion and admiration. And the French state has not hesi» tated to hang in the Luxembourg galleries two of her paintings, among these pictures of recent arlists \yhich are .Ultimately to be placed in the permanent .collections of the Louvre or the •cbief .cities of the provinces. Tile memory of this charming Russian girl, who was a true Parisian, will always linger around the tomb which Jier friends have had the inspiration to build for her. It is in the peaceful cemetery of' Passy, left like an Hand higli up above the surrounding streets, which have been leveled down as the city grew and absorbed Into itself the old-time suburban village.

Fotf those who card to see these other paintings, Madame Ifashktf tsetf keeps them piously pre-> served, along with other memorials of her daughter, in a bright, tintenanted studio, on the heitfh ts of Mofltma'rtre. This, too, is visited by travelers frbm every land, who have learned to kndw Marie Bashkirtseff rather frorn Her writings than her paintings. The chief merit of 'both is the intense aatl modern personality of Marie Bashkirt> seff, which breathes through all her works. UXTEUIOK OF TI1K TOMB. Just below is the river, and beyond ;hore is the Eiffel Tower, with tho other buildings of the exposition of 1880. Passing through the gate, the graveled walk—where the guardian in uniform passes up and down—stretches before you, bordered with tho square, cottage-like constructions which are tho tombs of eve-ry French cemetery. Tho first tomb at your right—larger than any other, so large as to seem at first sight like the ehapel of tho place —is the tomb of Marie Hashlcirtseff. It is not a chapel. Outside, it is a monument to her memory and her works; Inside, it reproduces her studio. The idea is original, in keeping with her life, and with her life, and with her desire that she should not be forgotten. Tho high, wide arch of tho doorway is filled in with glass that everyone may look? through. Within is a house, \intenanted, except by the white marble bust of Marie Uashkirtseff on a table where tho altar would have been in a chapel. It looks down on the lifeless room, arranged as it would have been in the days of her labor, says the Illustrated American. There are a few palms und baskets of flowers, prie-dieu with its embroidered cushion; on tho walls there are religious relics of the Russian church, with a few ta-bles and chairs and, in perfect and final order, those little adornments with whicli the most intellectual of women must always surround themselves. To one side a stone balustrade rails off a flight of steps leading to tho underground burial vault. This ia the abode—the intimate colla—of JNTEBIOB OP THE TOJJtt aspiring female genius, crystallized when the mind that inspired it had The exterior of the tomb is Byzan? |n its rich arches and columns and elaborate decorations, like the buildings of Marie Jja&hkirfcsoff's own company.

It Was Kecently Purchased l>y the Willow of nu American Klnx. Mrs. Vandcrbilt, it is said, has lately bought a wonderful crown which her ex-majesty Eugenie had ordered for her imperial head a short time before the war of 1870,-. Mrs. Vandei-bilt possessed already in her jewel box two of these regal ornaments, one bought from a German highness whose husband had been bankrupt, and another for which she had a special liking, which • resembles that worn by the queen at tho opening of parliament This is a marvel of workmanship, and •1300,000 were paid for it to a London jeweler, so it is said. The last purchase, tho crown of the Empress Eugenie, has cost $300,000. It contains 2,000 stones, finely mounted in old silver lined with gold, and measures about twelve inches in circumference. It is composed of violet leaves, the central ornament being a bouquet of the same flowers, in the middle of which flashes the biggest and purest of the stones MllwunUce Woman lawyer.

The solitary mound i or a opportunity. In turnm» about marks the resting place of a noted and ftuj ' n # tllf > lotl £ hne of d& Crow modicine man. He was known as Kword-Bcftrer, having gained tho title from a blood-red cavalry saber Which he carried during a remarkable career of brief duration, but full o/ adventure and excitement. The Crows have always beeh known as 'tho friends of tho white man, says tho Kooky Mountain N^ws. Six years ago tho once great tribe had beenroJuced to 6.UOJ souls, and these depended uoon Uncle -Sam for clothing and provisions. One day in the spring of 1887 a j handsome young Indian buck named C'hestapJi'nish strode from his wigwam down the main thoroughfare of the village and disappeared over a neighboring hill. Tho young warrior took a bee line for the Wolf mourn tains. For three months Cheata- pornish remained in seclusion. When Chestapornish Moated down among his old if ends he had a mission. The most conspicuous object about the newly, fledged medicine man was a red sword. This sword, he mysteriously .whispered to h'.s former companions, was great medicine. The sword possessed the, power of instantaneous death over any living •person at whom it might be waved. This assertion and the solemn air of the prophet gave him u prestige in a small circle of his tribe. Ho soon had a following of half a dozen young bucks, and early in September S word-Bearoivas he , was then called, led the raid against the Piegan Indians, returning to the village with a number of stolen ponies. While still noi-th of tho Yellowstone river, en route homeward, after the foray, the question arose among the party whether it would be safe to appear with the ponies at the agency. The Indians well know that Hugh Campbell, the stock inspector, would detect the brands on the ponies at a glance. Sword-Bearer assured his followers that there was no danger of detection. Then he uttered his first prophecy. On the day they arrived at tho village, he said, one half of Campbell's face would bo "dead," and ho would not, bo able to see the brands. The result was exactly us foretold. Campbell was disabled by a stroke of paralysis extending throughout the loft side of his face. The marauders were so greatly ilatod over their escape from punishment by the government that they attempted to relieve their joy by riding through the streets, shooting chimneys off the log houses, and other pranks which delight the sav- rtgo heart. Intelligence of this exuberance of xpirits was sent to the nearest military post, and two troops of cavalry were dispatched to the spot to reduce the disturbing element to submission. The following day throe more troops of cavalry started for the Crow agency. Early in the forenoon Sword-Boaror v/an . observed going, through his medicine making. His camp was pitched on a hill near tho ajeney, and it was learned from nn Indian ucout that ho gave notice that ho would ride around the agency, scatter his medicine aad a", great rainstorm would follow, which would noften the hearts. of the soldiers. and ueiid thorn back to the fort. At iioon Uio sky was perfectly clear.. and there was not tho slightest intimation of a storm. Under ordinary conditions it requires a we.ak; of cloudy weather to wind up 'in a' rainstorm in Southeastern Montana. At 1 o'clock In the afternoon of the rain-making a great storm burst from tho mountains. About 5 p. in. a courier arrived from the post with nn order dirpoting all the troops but one to return immediately to their barracks. Tho situation remained quiet tor several clays. Then there oitmo an order from tho department of the interior at Washington, to arrest -the medicine man and seven ringleaders among his followers. In the meantime thp fame of Sword-Bearer had attracted many new veeinuta to his sei'vico and he commanded a small army of warriors. Quite a number of the Oow chiefs still viewed the medicine man, from afar. They feared to offend the Groat Father at Washington, by openly espousing the prophet. Ke-enforcements from the fort arrived and friendly chiefs were notified that the patience of the government was exhausted. Unless tho chiefs delivered up Sword- Bearer and seven leaders somebody would pet h,urt. Iii fact the messenger said that Sword-Bearer must be over by noon the next day or the troops would go a,nd tal?e him. Tho commander washed his hands of all responsibility as to what might happen. Shortly before 13 o'clock on the fa.tj.1 day the prophet was seen at th.o head of 8JO warriors. HO rode o, milk-white steed and. wa.s ornamented wit-h A scarlet Hannel blanket, which wavo4 gracefully in the breexe HS ho galloped, majestically at the hea4 of his dou'blo column of warriors, The sword retained its usual men, he gracefully waved hi* sword in the air. To the astonishment of; his deluded followers, the medicine- failed to oporate ( and a moment late^ the Indians d'sap,.eared over tho hank of the river. A volley from, the troops doubtless hastened the exit. In attempting to escape, Sword -Bearer" received a bullet over the eye. Iii3 downcast followers washed the war-paint from their faces and humbly presented themselves for rations the next morning 1 . So- deo 3 was their disappointment in their prophet that they treated the dead body with groat indignity, Had. had their wishes been carriel out,, the body would have been, loft to rot''on.'the plain. HISTORY OF A BANK NO'MJ. Used as a Mnstengef by an Conlliied in a Dun so mi. Bank notes have* curious historic* attac-ied to them .••!& the way of human oomedy, tragedy, and melodrama, says the-New York Homo Journal. A collector at Paris of such curiosities got hold some yeartt ago of a £5 Bank of England not& which had somewhat of a tragia interest connected with it. Some sixty-odd years ago the cashier of a Liverpool merchant had received in tender for a business payment a Bank of Engiatiil note, which he held up to the scrutiny of tho light so as to make sure of its -genuineness. Ho observed some partially indistinct red marks or words traced out on. the front of the note beside tho lettering and oh , tho margin. Curiosity tempted him to try to decipher the words 1 so inscribed. With great difficulty, so faintly written were • they and so much obliterated, the words were found to form the following: sentence: "If this note should fall into the hands of John Dean of Long-hill near Cai'lislo, he -will lear n hereby that, his brother is languishing a prisorter at Algiers." Mr. Dean, on being shown the note, los. no time in asking the.government.of the-day td'make intercession for his brother's freedom. It appeared that for eleven long years tho latter had been a slave to tho bey of Algiers, ;in;l that his family and relatives TJO- lieved him t:> be dead. With apiece of wood ho had traced in his own blood on the bank note, the message which was to procure his release. Tho government aided the efforts of his brother to set him froo, this being- accomplished on payment of a ransom to tho bey. Unfortunately tho captive did not lonp; enjoy his liberty, his bodily sufferings while working as a slave in Algiers having undermined his constitution. Tongs. The use of tongs for taking up heated metals or small lumps of anything was known to tho Anglo-Saxons (tango), so were prooably in vogue as soon as the use of "lump" sugar- became common. Forks wore introduced Into England by Thomas Corvtit in 160S, having seen them in^ Italy, first known thero at tho end of the lifteenth century; and silver forks wore introduced about tho. your 181-1; but two-pronged steel onea were manufactured at -fchefliord soon after Coryat employed one himself. In tho time of Queen Elizabeth, Fynos Moryson describes tho use of a fork, as ho observed it at Venice, in hia Itinerary.
