CHICAGO, Aug. 27 —When the north toound freight-on the Chicago, Milwaukee •& St. Paul road stopped last aight at Deerfield two masked men mounted the steps of the caboose. The brakemen were well toward tho •engine, which was in charge of Engineer Pritchard, and only the conductor, Sargent, and the road detective, 'Owens, were in the caboose. The masked men entered the door and .covered the conductor and detective with their revolvers. The detective sprung for his rifle, but before Jia could reach it one of the robbers *hot him through the breast Tho conductor threw up his hands and the robbers who had done the shooting went through his pockets, taking his watch and a small amount of money. They then escaped. A special train carrying a number of special officers of the road was sent out at midnight .to run down the robbers if possible. BAR ASSOCIATION in line, as if simultaneously overcome by ^stifling smoke. Some had beea smothered and were not cut or evea bruised. .All were dead before assist- anee reached them. Many, of in the gangways, ^suspecting what was coming, rushed / ibacktoinotify the rminers further in 'that.a fire .was.burning, while others •rushed .out and reached the main •shaft. Jt is. certain that all the mean in the ibreast readied the gangway in safety. In.all.about seventy men were in.the-sixth level north, and •of that number about forty lingered -at breast 02, where the fire originated, -.and made an.attempt to put out the lire. OJhe breastwas.burning fiercely, .and before the miners.knew it the fire ,had,communicated to breasts 00 and '61 and smoke began to issue from breast.ftl in that .immediate vicinity. :Several.of'those .who lingered at the burning breast 0.2 took warning and :fled, .but.all whoa-emained were over•come and asphyxiated. It is evident all theimen had time to out, ior those who worked in the further breast .reached the shaft in safety, while those who were nearest the shaft and .consequently more removed from danger, .perished. They evidently believed they were in perfect safety from the ifire, but while they lingered the smoke oozed out from the .outside place further south and the bodies were all found south of breast u2. They were .all found within a space of .SWfeet. Rescuers went down from the surface and found the body ,of the first man in the gangway about 1,000 feet in from the slope. The arrival of this hody on the surface was the first intimation to the men, women and children there that any one had met death. Consequently When the body was carried away there was a wild scramble to discover its identity. AVhen it was found the rescuers were besieged with questions from mothers, fathers and children concerning loved ones who were imprisoned. Bui their questions were only answered by an ominous shake of the hand. At 3 o'clock the last of the thirty- seven bodies was recovered and then the people began to quiet dpwn. Many of them were completely pro'strated witli their violent grief and devoted their time to methodically caring for toe dead. All day long the little telegraph office was besieged with sorrowing people sending messages to relatives living in Other parts of the country notifying them of the grief which has SO suddenly befallen them. . The origin of the fire in breast 03 is Supposed to be due to spontaneous 1 combustion caused by refuse and < screenings in the bottom of the breast s packing and catching fire. „ .Superintendent Ramsey says he will ; ,fcwlk the sixth level and perhaps the fifth level a»d hermetically seal them !thwa shutting off the air apdsmovber' t , Iflg 1 the fire.

WASHINGTON, Autr. 27 —Yesterday was the wind-up of all the legislative business in the senate and house. Today and Sunday senators and representatives will be leaving in all directions. Representative Catchings, who called on President Cleveland yesterday, regards it as settled that the tariff bill will become a law Monday midnight without the dent'-s signature. Mr. inclines to the belief will send a message to congress the subject. Grant knew Mis Man. • . • , While we were eating a whistle blew. It was from a little tugboat that had steamed its way tip the Swollen and dangerous river from Wilmington. It passed the enemy hidden on either bank. It was the first sound Heard from the North since the army left the ocean, writes S. 11. M. Payers in MeClure's. No one in the North knew where Sherman's army was. Rumors brought from the South said it was "floundering and perishing in the swamps of the Carolinas." That day the general directed me to board this tugboat, run down the river in the night and carry dispatches to General Grant in front of Richmond and to President Lincoln nt Washing; ton. ! ."Don't say muck about how we are doing down here," said the general, as he put his arm about me and said farewell that evening down at the river bank. "Don't tell them in the North that we are cutting any great swath here. Just say we are taking care of whatever is getting in front of us. And be careful your boat don't get knocked to the bottom of the river before daylight. Our little craft was covered nearly all over with cotton bales. The river was very wide and out of its banks everywhere; the night was dark. Whatever the enemy may have thought of the little puffs of steam far out on the dark, rapid water, we got down to the sea unharmed. A fleet ocean steamer at once carried me to Virginia. Grant was in a little log cabin at City Point, and when an officer was announced with dispatches from Sherman he was delighted. He took me into a back room, read the letters I ripped out of my clothing, and asked me many questions. Then General Ord entered. "Look here," said General Grant, delighted as a child. "Look here, Ord, at the news from Sherman. He has beaten even the swamps of the Carolinas." "I am glad," said Ord, rattling his big spurs; "I am so glad. I was getting a little uneasy." "I not a bit," said Grant. "I knew Sherman. I knew my man. I knew my man," he gravely continued, almost to himself. tfhe cartridges were forced to place with a ramrod. Simultaneously the 1 two famfodS entered the guns, *nd Simultaneously they were withdrawn; but the Russian, accustomed to Inflexible discipline, to do everything a set way, put back his ramrod in its place along the barrel, while the Frenchman threw his away with the movfeJ- raent that withdrew it. This gave him the needed moment's advantage over his antagonist. Clapping his gunstock to his shoulder, he had the Russian's life in his hands. The Russian stopped still, awaiting the Shot that should be his death. Then the French sergeant dropped his gun from his shoulder and put out his right hand. The Russian grasped it; the two sdldiei's shook" hands without a xvord—for neither knew a word of the other's tongue—and then both turned and went their opposite ways.

NEW YORK Aug. 27.—Advices received hero from Bluefields say the Niearaguati troops are returning from that place and that they reached Grey town yesterday, taking with them a Mr. Hatch, the British consular agent, and eight other foreigners as prisoners. It has. been announced also that a British war vessel arrived at Grey town yesterday evening. Memphis Tax Sc-undul Grows, MEMI-JIIS, Tenn,, Aug. 37.—Tho deeper the grand jury probes tho worse tho delinquent tax scandal grows. More indictments have been returned. The amount of revenue out of which the state, and coutjty have been defrauded during the past eight years now amounts to more than Detroit School ijounl Men Held, DET«OJT, Mich., Aug. ?7.— Three of the alleged school board "boodlers " Messrs. Walsh, Wphardt, and Idchten- berg, have been bound over for trial. Milo H, Davis, one of tho defendants! whp disappeared since his arrest, was ordered re^rrested a^d his bail clared forfeited. Tlie lost to I,cavo Rossvllle. I wish to say a few words in corroboration of Minty's claim in regard to his command being the last to leave RossviJle at the battle of Chickamauga. In that Minty is perfectly right; we were not only tho last to leave Kossville, but the last to enter the Union lines at Chattanooga from the direction of Rossville; and we did it skirmishing with the rebels from near llossville to within a short distance of our lines at 9hattanooga. There could not have been any other troops behind us, or they would have been inside the rebel Hue. This is further corroborated by the statement of Lieutenant Reuben F. Little, 18th U. S. Inf., in the issue of Slay 31. He says that he thought his picket-line was the last of the Union troops outside of our line, aucl that he received orders to move to Chattanooga as quickly as possible, which order he proceeded to obey, but soon found that he was pursued by the rebels and gave the order to double- quick, but just then a body of Union cavalry came out of the woods and attacked his pursuers, and that body of cavalry was Minty's brigade; at least, one regiment of it (tho 4th U S. Cav.). We had been standing to horse tho whole night near an old house (Ross- viilc, I suppose) to the left of the road leading up to tho Gap. Where the balance of the brigade was during the night I had no chance to know, as our orders were very strict. We were not allowed to leave the lino, nor talk aloud or make a fire. Daring the night a good deal of our infantry and •artillery passed noiselessly bv 'us on their way to Chattanooga, Lieutenant Little's statement is, according- to my recollection, correct. He says that whon he moved out of tho Gap he could notice that day was breaking When it was plain daylight we were ordered to mount, and then wo stood for awhile mounted at the house before we were ordered to move to the woods back of the house. Thero wo made another short halt, then commenced to move toward Chattanooga; but soon after the skirmish commenced, if i am not mistaken the sun was just up by that time.—James Larson, in National Tribune.

Cav. (28th lint.) Eight companies of this rpgiment were organized at Evansville, lud Aug. 20, 1801. to ssrvo for the term of three years. Later in the year two companies of cavalry—Captain Stewart's and Captain Bracken's independ-' ent companies—were assigned to this regiment, forming I and K. Durino- November, 180S, two more companies! composed -of drafted men, were assigned to the regiment. These companies were mustered out July 33, 1863. The original members, except veterans, of tho eight companies composing the old regiment were mustered out, iu September, 1804, by reason of expiration of terms. Tho veterans and recruits were consolidated into a battalion of two companies, which remained in service until Juno 32, 1803, when it was mustered out. Tlie members of Cos. I and ,K were mustered out on July 3, 1804 and June 3D, 1804, respectively, and the veterans of these organizations formed a detachment which .remained in the service until May 31, ,1805, when it was mustered out in accordance with orders from the war department.; Colonel Conrad Baker, under whose command the regiment entered the field, remained with tho organization until September 13, 1864, when he was mustered out by reason of expiration of term. Major Mark McCauloy was hi charge of tho battalion of tho 1st Ind. Cav, when mustered out. The regiment participated in- the battles of Gettysburg, Fredoi-icksburg, Cedar Mountain, Man-' assas, and many other battles. The loss by death in the service was 187 officers and men. Four officers and thirty-two men were killed in action or died of wounds received therein, aud the remainder died from other causes. >, Household Martyr. Perhaps you do not recognize her by that name, but yet you have seen her many times and oft with her patient face, her never quite new gowns and her look of premature gravity that .characterizes a face on which the continued life of self- sacrifice has made its mark. -A flock of younger brothers and sisters look up to her as the guiding star of the home, a dependent mother turns over the care of the children to one who has scarce known any childhood of her own, and at the time when she should be enjoying life's best and sweetest the slender shoulders of the oldest daughter are weighed down by cares that should only come to her in nature's chosen way instead of being thrust upon her to blight out all the pent up youthful enthusiasm, -n.king her old before her time. When little more than a baby she was thrust aside from the mother's knee to make room for little sister or brother; her play time resolved itself into minding the baby," and as the years went on the family still increased it became her duty to look out for first'one thing and then another, until by the time she was 15 her experience would have been readily taken for that of a woman of 50. This never ending care, this long apprenticeship as nursery governess, did not tend to beautify her form or features, and little by little the idea became established in the minds of ;he younger and better lookincr ones that "Sister" was too plain .to be dressed up, that the gayeties they so horoug-hly enjoyed were too frivolous for her, and so she began to wear mother's cast-off gowns, the new and lainty creations being given to Nell or Marjorie, who were, of course, expected to marry well, because they vere so pretty and so ' thoroughly up-to-date, while "Sister," of ourse, never dreampt of such tilings, low could she marry? What would they do without her? Who would help them to dress for parties, the invitations to which at first included her, but at last ceased coming, owing to tho continued regrets of the recluse? Who would pick up shoes and ribbons when they had departed, straighten up the bureau or mend their clothes? How could they ever give little companies unless "Sister" prepared the goodies, set the table and arranged the flowers, dutifully disappearing at the last moment with flushed cheeks and throbbing- temples to don the same made-over gown that had been her best for years, later to receive a few words of flippant greeting from the guests, who appeared to regard her as a peculiar old maid quite out of place in any festive gathering. 1 In illness the oldest daughter nurses the invalid and rims the house as well and when death, the grim reaper,' talces away the mother and father, a noble woman shuts out of her heart all the natural longings for a home of her own, a husband to love her and her own babies to lisp tho tender word of mother, and buckles 011 the armor of self-sacrifice anew, in many* c:ises becoming the bread-winner, regarding the younger ones-as sacred trusts by whom she will act as her mother would havo had her do, and for whom she gives up all that is bright and sunny, living out her life on lines of rigorous denial until a kindly Providence bids her come up higher. The same individual gazes with ardent longing at the gauzy ball gowns displayed in tho windows, and many a bitter tear of regret has been shoe as the bent form moved noiselessly about the room picking up a stray satin slipper or a crushed rosebud that had boon dropped by tho pretty debutante sister whoso life had fallen iu plcasantcr places than her own. Out of our own happiness we canno t give enough to these household martyrs who must live out their lives in painful consciousness that they never were young. Yiuilcuo Doodle. Louis C. Elson the musical critic, in a lecture said that "'Yankee Doodle" was suggested by tho motley appearance of the colonial troops when they mustered for tho Indian wars in 1755. An English wit composed it, and in the slang of that day, "doodle" meant simpleton, and "macaroni" u elude Mr. Elson said that "Yankee Doodle 1 ' was the beginning and end of tho Kevpluttonary war, for at Lexington *the British played it in derision, and at tho surrender of Cornwallis the Americans paid it back with interest, making the British prisoners march by the same tuno. r A»* Opinion. During the war a soldier wl}Q took part in a foraging expedition found a bottle of whisky, and proceeded to console hiinself for the hardships he hac] endurofi 4 lu .i ngr the campaign. On returning- to canjp ho was placed in the gruard h,aus,e and. hfc oooditioa to the llucluibach Embroidery, Since linen embroidery has been so much the fashion it seems that every sort of linen, from its finest to its coarsest degrees, has been used, but until recently one, tho plain linen, and no fancy weaves have boon called iuto use. Now a now material has been introduced into the realm of fancy work. This is a huckaback, and for the embroidery a fine piece, evenly made, is required. Everyone knows that tho prominent patterns in huckaback are the three parallel threads which riso a little from the rest of the cloth. Use a flat embroidery needle, and any color or white, washable silk, and darn under tho three threads, leaving tho silk threads loose to bo prominent. One stitch, and perhaps the prettiest one, is that in which after darning under a group of throe, you take as your next three a group in tho next column and one b$ek, In this stitch you work jn $'diag9naHine, but by coatwiiug you will -find tha.t Jt coines out oven. This darning was introduced at first to make simple and easily cleaned neckties for glrjs' summer outing eosituines, and they aro. yevy pretty for gentlemen, to go with a tennis or other rather neg-lig-ep suit, But from thjs beginning' a vftviod line of em- fp.runp- up in all o»p]oyod, 'Jookfu|- p|l. fl# back darned in with cot>t which form a decided contrasts of tvith white, which as the front inay be easily washed, and the back, tod,. if the huckaback is used for the' whole, can be kept very bright and fresh looking. Then come bureau 1 scarfs, dressing- table mats, table covers and anything- for which linen has been used. The. prettiest flriish for the embroidery is. a plain, undarned hem, as huckaback does not hemstitch well. The work is quickly done, and is a. fascinating kind of fancy work. Since it is clone easily and is not especially- trying, it is a pretty bed covering,and especially for a single bed, all draped in \vliite, it is a dainty ornament. iiot Milk euro. f , *Thoso who are afflicted with skin er«ptions,especially with red blotches and hard little lumps known as ecze- nious acne, will find relief by persevering in the following simple and inexpensive cure: Do not bathe affected parts* in water; this aggravates cutaneous affections. Each night, before retiring, heat about a pint of fresh, sweet milk. Do not let it boil, but let it rise just to- the boiling point. Boiled milk loses its healing virtue. Then, with an old linen handkerchief, sop the hot fluid generously on the affected parts. Do. not wipe the milk off, but let it dry into the skin. In the morning bathe the skin in a little hot milk or in a dilution of lis- terino in hot water, in the proportion of two parts of water to one of lister- ine. _Eat no constipating food. Avoid especially new, fine bread, sugar,, pastry and all starchy foods. Fruit, lettuce and radishes may. be taken with good result. Be careful not tj , worry. Worriment is often the direct cause of eczema. Exercise actively in the open air, but do not heat the system. If you will follow these few simple rules, and will persist in the application of the hot milk each night before retiring, the red spots will soon fade away, and the hard lumps will gradually soften and disappear. Sometimes the disease is obstinate- and will not yield at once to the treatment. But persevere steadily under all discouragement—you will in the end be rewarded by a complete cure. Cases of acute eczema, that for years have baffled the most patient efforts of skin specialists, have yielded to this treatment within six months. Hot milk is beneficial also to a healthy skin. It preserves its softness and clearness, and seems to act as an invigorating tonic.—New York Herald. Tho Mirror and Its Omens. The Swedish girl who looks into, her glass by candlelight risks the loss of her lover. A universal superstition which has found its way even to our own prosaic time and country forbids, a bride to see herself in a mirror after her toilet is completed. In Warwickshire and other parts of rural England it was long the custom to cover all the looking glasses in a house of death, lest some affrighted mortal should behold in one the pale and shrouded corpse standing by his side. Superstitions of a less ghostly character cluster around the mirror and are familiar to us all. To break one is everywhere an evil omen. "Sevea years' trouble but no want" follow fast upon a mishap in Yorkshire, while in Scotland the cracking of a looking-glass, like the falling of the doomed man's picture from the wall, is a presage of approaching death! i Veal Cutlets. Take slices from the broad end of the leg. Fry three or four slices of salt pork crisp, then take them out and lay in the veal half an hour at least before dinner. When the veal has become brown take it out and dip the slices, one by onoj into a plate of flue bread crumbs that have been seasoned with salt, pepper and minced parsley, then fry them a few minutes longer. When a golden brown on both sFdes take them up and lay them on a hot platter. Pour out tho grease in the frying pan, all but about a tablespoonful, add a tablespoonful of flour and cook until brown, Add half a pint of boiling water, salt and pepper; let it boil up a few minutes, add a good squeeze of lemon juice and strain over the cutlets, To Make Iced Tea. Scald tho teapot, put in the tea while the pot is hot, turn in a little boiling water and let it stand about five minutes; then fill up the teapot with boiling water. The quantity depends upon taste. Do not let the ten stand in the pot, but turn it at enceinte a pitcher, and as soon as it is suf^ ficiently cool place it on ice until it is icy cold. Serve with it a dish of cracked ice and slices of lemon. This is a delightful, refreshing drink on a hot day. The secret of making good tea is in using- freshly-boiled water. Apt-loot Soufllo.
