WUAT WILL. EKGLiAND DO?
America is sending us prime beef and
mutton. American wool is J ousting
England from the market. American:
supplies are more numerous in the Eng
lish market than home-grown. America
is now sending us "English" plum-puddings
.ready for boiling. American
horses have this year won the princi
pal races in England and France. And
now that America is bestirring herself
about her navy, what will be left lor
poor old England to plume herself
upon? London Truth.
The unhappy condition of the agri
cultural classes in England, Ireland
and Scotland is due in a great measure
o competition in market supplies with
America. Rapidity of ocean travel,
and the discoveries of science enable
American beef raisers to put beef on
foot or slaughtered into the English
market cheaper than the home raiser,
with his high rents and limited farms,
can afford to do, for much of this
American beef is pastured on wide
ranges of wild grass where the pastur
age costs practically nothing but the
trifling expense of herding, and some
times not even that much. This is
true also about the mutton and wool
trade, a great deal of which is raised
pretty much in the same way. The
abundance and cheapness of pasturage
also enables the American dairyman
to put his butter and cheese in the
English market at a less figure than
the home dairyman can, and as a con
sequence tne Dome products or Deer,
cheese and butter, on which the farm
ears across the water so largely de
pended for their profits, are being to a
great extent driven out of the market.
Some years ago they had the advantage
in the superior quality of stock they
raised, but the importation of their
finest thoroughbreds into this country
has been carried on so extensively that
our stock now compares favorably with
their best and they have no longer any
advantage of us in this respect.
It must be remembered, too, that it
is only within recent-years that the en
terprise has been undertaken, and that
it cannot be said yet to have made a
good start, although it has met with
such splendid success. It will not be
many years before the English markets
will be practically supplied from this
side of the Atlantic and from Austra
lia, making matters still worse for the
home producer, who must 'go under in
the uneven contest.
And with all this befWn their ye3
English statesmanship seetns U be una
ble to comprehend the scheme of re
lief. There is no hope for the tiller of
the soil over there save in being the
owner of the land he cultivates, thus
enabling him to branch out on a large
scale, go into the business with system
and spirit. Perhaps then he might
be able to save himself, but even this
is doubtful. But it is reduced to a cer
tainty that while confined, as many of
them are, to mere garden patches, com
paratively speaking, for which they
pay enormously high rents, they cannot
longer compete with the American prc
ducer, and if English statesmanship is
not totally blind it must see this and if
not totally perverse it must recognize
it. Add to all this, as the London
Truth suggests, a revived American
Merchant Marine to compete with
Briton's ships on the high scrs, and lay
American products and fabrics down in
the markets of the world as cheaply as
England now does her products and
the English tradesman, shiiptr and
sailor go to the wall as t ffectually as
the English farmer now does. The
fact is American push and enterprise
are darkening England's future not a
little. No wonder so many of her peo
ple are looking across the Atlantic for
future homes, and it will be no wonder
either at no very distant period to see
the majority of her bone and muscle
planted on American homesteads where
there is room for industry and reward
for labor, and there are no landlords to
reap the profits of the years of toil.
A TEXAS RATTLE.
A Lively Skirmish Between three
Plucky Prisoner and their Par-tier,
St. Louis, J an. 3 Advices from Gra
ham, Texas, report that the three Mc
Donald boys, murderers of a man named
Marlin, at Belknap, made a desperate
effort to escape from jail yesterday,
which resulted in their death and that
of a deputy sheriff, besides the serious
wounding of several other people.
About 10 o'clock in the morning the
McDonald boys were led from the steel
cage to the calaboose, and with Jim
Boone and Jack Baldwin, two other
prisoners, were given their breakfast by
two deputies. One deputy was testing
the cage while it was empty, and the
other deputy, Davis Melton, stood in
the door way of a wood cell opening
from the calaboose to the steel cage, he
had a pistol in each hand keeping watch,
and presently he put both revolvers in
one hand to get a match from his pock
et. The McDonalds sprang upon him
suddenly and disarmed him. In the
struggle Melton was shot in the hand
and his cries brought Murphy, the other
deputy, from the cage, but on entering
the calaboose he was shot and iustantly
killed by the prisoners. The prisoners
then made a hole through the floor to a
room below and taking Melton with
them began their escape. A blood
hound watches the jail, but by a detour
they avoided him and took their flight
in a southerly direction. By this time
the city was excited and citizens had
gathered together and followed the
prisoners. Thj latter placed their host
age, Melton, behind them and threat
ened to shoot him dead if they were
fired on. Thus the murderers proceed
ed some 300 yards when one citizen de
liberately took aim and fired, wounding
one of the fugitives, who fell. Deputy
Melton seized the opportunity, broke
loose and ran. Ageneral f usilade was
now begun between citizens and the
escaping prisoners. The latter en
trenched themselves in the weeds and
stumps. The battle raged for some
time, and when the shooting ceased the
three McDonalds were dead. Melton
was shot three times; an old man
named Wood was wounded in the thigh,
and a waiter named Joe had a bone of
his leg shattered. Baldwin and Boone
took no part in the shooting; and were
recaptured. Graham was a scene of

; Dr. Gray took the stand and Scoville
resumed his cross-examination., The
witness had not he said, in giving his
opinion on direct examination that
prisoner was sane, taken into account
the evidence of the prisoner himself,
but taking that element into account
his opinion would still be the same,
that the prisoner is sane and was sane
on the second of July. The witness
was asked if he was familiar with the
case of Lieut. Samborn, who was killed
by Dr. Wright at Norfolk, Va and he
replied "Yes, sir, I was sent by the
President to make an examination and
give an opinion on the case."
"How much did you get for it?"
The witness was closely questioned
as tojaow, or by what physical exami
nation insanity and disease of the brain
could be detected.
"Have you ever had patients in
your asylum who have recovered i
"Yes, sir, I have."
"Have you seen persons who have re
covered in three months?"
"Yes, sir, I have."
Scoville : "And were discharged ?"
Scoville: "Well, now if you experts
were to examine such a patient im
mediately upon his discharge could
you tell by any physical indications
that he,hadbeen insane only three
months previous ?"
"No sir, not without a history of the
Scoville: "I thought so."
Guiteau: Your idea, Doctor, that a
man can't be insane unless his brain is
diseased, is rather frivolous ; you don t
agree with the, Saviour ; you ought to
study up spiritology, then you would
catch some new ideas."
The witness did not believe In what
is termed by some writers "emotional
insanity," or "moral insanity." Klopto
mania, he considered simply thieving;
dipsomania, drunkenness; and pisoma
nia, incendiarism. These designations
were simply constituted terms, whicn
had been invented to cover certain,
crimes. Insanity, said the witness, is
never transmitted any more than can
cer. I never knew anybody born with
cancer; a susceptibility to insanity is
undoubtedly tranbmitted from parents
to children, but insanity does not ne
cessarily follow, except from some pro
found physical disturbance.
The exam i nation progressed with
tedious detail. Iu the effort to extract
sometning favorable to the defence the
counsel renewed the attack upon the
witness again and again, and each time
was met with an evasive or qualified

a few more questions by Scoville when

conclusion of evidence on the part of
Scoville walked over to the dock and
conferred with the prisoner a few min
utes. After returning to his seat he
said : Your honor, I am taken complete
ly Ly surprise by the action of the pro
secution in not calling several persons
whose names had been given in as wit
nesses for the prosecution. These gen
tlemen, being employees of the govern
. ment, were in a position to know some
thing of the moral condition of the
prisoner about the time of the shooting
of the president. I do not now know
what action in the matter the defence
will wish to take, but I will inform the
court to-morrow morning.
Dr. Bowker of Kansas city was then
called by Scoville. The witness met
Mrs. Dunmire at Leadviile, Colorado,
and conversed with her. She said she
bad entertained grave doubts as to the
mental condition of Guiteau at the
time she obtained her divorce, and
thought at the time perhaps she had
better defer the divorce proceedings and
await some further development in the
mental condition of her husband.
The prisoner undertook to read a
letter as he claimed from an old friend
of Garfield in Ohio, showing that pub
lic opinion was making in his favor.
Judge Cox ordered him to be silent.
Guiteau: It shows the state of pub
lic opinion outside the court room.
Marshal Henry, rising &nd moving
towards the dock: Keep quiet, sir.
Guiteau : I've got through, sir.
The marshal whispered some instruc
tions to the bailiff sitting in the dock.
A moment later the prisoner started
upon another harangue, and the bailiff
put his hand unon bis shoulder and at
tempted to quiet him. Guiteau snarled
out: "Get awav from me, or I'll slap
you in the mouth 1" With this outburst
he subsided, however, and turned his
attention to writing autographs.
Scoville again. brought up the ques
tion of introducing new witnesses. An
agreement was Anally made that the
defence shall submit inv writing to

Everybody wants it, but very few get it,
because most people do not know , how to
select coffee, er it is spoiled in the roasting
or making. To obviate these difculties
has been our study. . Thurber's package
Coffees are selected by an expert who un
derstands the art of blending various fla
vors. They are roasted in the most perfect
manner (It is impossible to roast well in
small quantities), then puf in pound pack
ages (in f he bean, not ground,)' bearing our
6iiiature as a guarantee of genuineness,
and each package, contains tho Thurber
recipe for making . good Coffee. We
pack two kinds, Thurber's " No. 34,"
strong and pungent, Thurber's "No. 41,"
mild and rich. - One or the other will
suit every taste. They have the three
great points, good quality, honest quan
tity, reasonable price. Ask your Orocer
for Thurber' a roasted Coffee in pound pack'
ages, "No. 34" or "No. 41." Do not' be put
off with any other kind your own palate
Will tell you what is best.
Where persons desire it we also, furnish
the "IdeaY' Coffee-pot, the simplest, best
and cheapest coffee-pot in existence.
