CHARGED WITH ARSON. of A Gambler Arrested on the Charge ; Firing the Depots at Cliutou. ' CLINTON, July 6.—The police have arrested William Stewart, a gambler, at Fulton, 111., for firing the Milwaukee & Northwestern depots recently. The case is strong against him. A few months ago the depot at Fulton burned, and Stewart claimed to have lost a trunk containing S600 worth of goods. He put in a similar claim at this fire. . The ashes of his trunk disproved his story of the country. He crossed the bridge coming to Clinton ;three hours before the fire and did not return. KILLED BY A LIVE WIRE.

At bes Moittes recently Editor Clark' son and Mayor Hillis raided a drug store and caught the proprietor in the act of dispensing beer illegally. In the A. 6. U. W. case, up at t)u- buque, the seceders filed a demurrer against the Supreme Grand Lodge of Kentucky. The demurrer is made on ten different counts, the first being that the Federal Court has 60 jurisdic* tion. This action, begun thirteen years ago, promises to retch the longevity of Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce or the Iowa calf case. Arguments on the demurrer will probably not be heard till next fall. Fourteen drug store keepers of Des Moines have been indicted by the grand jury of Polk county for selling liquor illegally—an offense known to the law as keeping and maintaining a nuisance. The fourteen were arrested by Sheriff McGarraugh and his efficient deputies. They gave bonds in the sum of $500 each. All of the men have been in business in Des Moines for a great many years. The defendants deny that they have sold liquor illegally. Their conviction not only will revoke the permits they hold from the district court, but will likely result in the revocation of their certificates as pharmacists. ' Judge Weaver, of the Hardin county district court has just rendered a decision in a Boone county case that is of interest to mine ovyners of that county as well as elsewhere. The Boone Valley company sunk a shaft on some land that had been leased a good many years ago to a man by the name of Wilson. The mine promised to be productive and Wilson asked the courts for an injunction restraining the company from taking coal from the land. The injunction was refused, and the court holds that both parties may take coal from the land in question. This leaves the matter in a very unsatisfactory shape and unless the matter can be settled by the parties interested, the case 'will probably be appealed to the supreme court for settlement. Miss Sarah E. Morris, of Garden Grove, Iowa, aged 42, and anxious to get married, left Pitt'sburg, Pa., recently for -Bradford, after spending two days in a vexatious delay. She was engaged to be married to Henry H. Keggins, a tailor of Bradford. The couple got to know each other through an advertisement for lady correspondent published by Keggins.

She arrived in Pittsburg a few days ago, but her money gave out. She succeeded in raising her fare to Bradford on her baggage. Ten minutes after she had left a package containing money from her faithful lover arrived addressed to her, By this time she is probably a bride. W.

An overwhelming proportion of the reforms within this period have been affected by the direct action of the liberal party, or by the direct action of such statesmen as }*ool and Canning who were ever ready to meet odium or td forfeit power for the public good. In all ( the fifteen teen parliaments in which I have served, tbe people of Scotland have decisively expressed their convictions in favor of this wise and temperate policy and I trust that the electors of Midlothian will continue to lead the people of Scotland in the future as they have in the past." .ITALY AND BRAZIL.
