And with our thanksgiving let us p^ray that these blessings inay be multiplied unto us, that our national conscience may be quickened to a better recognition of the power and goodness of God, and that in our national life •we may clearer see and closer follow the path of righteousness. And in our places of worship and praise, as well as in happy reunions of Irindred and friends on that day, let us invoke divine approval by generously remembering the poor 'and needy. Surely He who has given us comfort and plenty will look upon our relief of the destitute and our ministrations of charity as a work of hearts truly grateful a«d as proofs of the sincerity of our thanksgiving.

About half past one unconsciousness supervened and the action of the heart became intermittent and scarcely perceptible until An order has been issued in Germany too establish agricultural bureaus in connection with the German embassies at London, Washington, 7aris, Vienna and St. Petersburg. This step is looked on as evidence of a stricter agrarian policy, which is known to have been contemplated for some time. News recently received from Perrien county, Georgia, says Wm. Griffin and Lcroy Moore, adjoining farmers, each with a large family, mutually objected to the fact that a son of one was keeping company with a daughter of the other. On meeting, they -.rushed at each other with axes, and each sunk his weapon into the other's head, both dj'ing instantly. Five hundred negroes sailed from Philadelphia for Liberia last week to find homes in the African republic. They comprise the first part of a party of 3,000 negroes who will sail during the month of November. Six of the largest vessels belonging to the New African Steamship company will carry the colonists, who come principally from * lle statcs of Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. The earthquake shocks which visited Argentine Republic recently were terribly destructive. The city of LH Rofa, capital of the province of that name, is ruined. A large number oi houses arc completely demolished, and not a house, public or private, escaped the damage. The loss of life there was comparatively light, because at St. I'KTKnsm-no, Nov. «,— Theoflicln messenger yesterday published tile first proclamation of Emperor Nicholas 11 of Russia in which, after formall> communicating to the nation the hews of the death of his father, Alexandel 111, he says: "May the knowledge console you that our grief is the grief of our entire beloved nation and may the nation not forget that the strength and firmness of holy Russia lies in its Unity and unbounded devotion to us. In this sad and solemn hour in which we ascend our ancestral throne of the Russian empire and ezardom of Poland and the grand duchy of Finland indissolubly linked with it,wc, however.rcmembcr the legacy left us by our lamented father and imbued with it we, in the presence of the most. high, take a vow to make our sole aim the development of the power and glory of our beloved Russia-and the happiness of our faithful subjects." The manifesto concludes with the command that the oath of allegiance be taken to him. Emperor Nicholas II., and to his heir apparent, Grand Duke George Alexandrovitch, his brother, who is to be entitled czarowita until God may bless with' a. son the union which his majesty is about to enter into with Princess Alixof Hesse-Darmstadt.

A number of people were badly injured by flying debris and falling houses and trees, but it is believed no lives were lost. Reports from the surrounding country indicate that the storm was general. The damage to crops was very great. FOOD INSPECTION. His Secretary Morton Will Speak of It In i Next Report. WASHINGTON, Nov. 5.—Secretary Morton, of the agricultural department, has given earnest attention to the inspection of foods exported from and imported into the United States, and as a result may suggest some very radical steps in his next report. Speaking of the matter the secretary said: i( I have decided to recommend in my next report that inspection of imports be provided for. There should be a microscopical investigation at ports of entry to detect the presence of adulteration, and shipments should be inspected also by officials of the countries from which they come and certificates of their purity furnished." > DREADFUL ACCIDENT.

The people are now camping in the fields. Reports from other points show terrible destruction of property and loss of life. The village of Del Arbor- don was completely swallowed up. It is estimated 2,000 lives were lost in the disturbed district, and 30,000 people are homeless. The government is sending relief. Montevidio dispatch: An American newspaper correspondent who has just arrived overland from Rio Janeiro reports that he saw on the way the bodies of fourteen men buried alive in a standing position by order of Brazilian coinirianders, but" with their heads exposed. They perished from 'starvation or from the attacks of vultures which had eaten out their eyes and picked their skulls bare of flesh. At San Mateo the clothing of women suspected of sympathy with the revolution was saturated with oil' and set 011 fire. While the women were burning soldiers were ordered to shoot and wound them, but not to kill them. The correspondent says some of his fingers were torn off after he had been tortured by having his finger nails torn out. Topeka dispatch: On complaint of Nelson F. Acres, United States Senator John Martin has been arrested on a charge of criminal libel. In an interview a little more than a week ago he defended Governor Lewelling and other populist state officers against charges of corruption made by Acres and denounced Acres as a gambler and all-round disreputable person. Acres was collector of internal revenue in Kansas during Cleveland's first administration and has for years been prominent in democratic circles. When he saw Martin's interview he came to Topeka. promptly and demanded a retraction. The senator refused to accede to the demand and Acres returned to his home in lola and instituted the proceedings against the senator, Senator Martin is supporting the populist state ticket. Greshain has made strong representations to Germany as to the injustice to the United States of the recent order prohibiting importations of American cattle and fresh beef into Germany. He protests that tue action, which is such a severe blow to a great American industry, was taken without sufficient evidence of disease among the cattle exported from America, or its contagious character or harmful effects. The secretary and the German ambassador had a conference on the subject, and the ambassador transmitted the protest to his .government. Tliere ii- some reason to hope that this government may bo able to secure a suspension of the order for a time to afford an opportunity for further investigation and proper consideration of such representation as we can make to bupport ow case. One reason fov the belief is the change just made in the German chancellorship, " Mwskogee, I, I 1 ,, •tliepajich: Beck, with twenty Indian _,_,,_„ sheriffs, cantwed fi. ye of the Cook gang Q$ • outlaws.

Tlie' rest o| gin in his disappointments of heart and vexations of mind. We believe that the Franco-Russian friendship will be little affected by his death. His son Nicholas must move for a considerable time in the grooves of policy worn brothers." GREATEST ON EARTH. John Jacob Astor's Proposed in New York. New Hotel NKW YOKK, Nov. n.— Another *member of the Astor family is going to open a favern in Fifth avenue. This time it is John Jacob, the inventor and society representative of the family, and his plans contemplate the bio-gest hotel on earth.

Its equipment will be all that genius and riches can supply, and the whole 'establishment will be made a sight for pilgrimages. BURGLAR SHOT DEAD.

Last spring a plot was formed in Finland to blow up the castle which the czar was expected to occupy during the fall maneuvers around Smolensk. The czar was deeply religious. He was under the influence of such bigots as Pobononoszeff, procurator of the holy synod, and this group persecuted the Jews, Catholics and German Lutherans in Russia without cessation or mercy.
