Mjv Stephens was asked, "Dp you thiuk
this session will be a quiet ouet".
"On the contrary, I think it will be a
very animated one;. While I -hope' audi
believe thaf-it will not be agitated by
sectional issues of any sori, thsre will, in
my opinion, be muci discussion of very
important questions. TIiq subject of iu-ttr-oceanic
transitjtfoY example, is one of
the very highest national aud interna
tional conseqnencelj, and itjvill undoubt
edly engagotlie attention of Congressi to
a great extent. It is of paramonut im-
portauce'lhat wo should not allow Great
Biittaiu, France or any other European
power to acquire ascendency over auy
part of this continent."'! i ' . '
"Are you in favor of an interoceanic
canal ?" asks the correspondent.
"Certainly I am,iaiid I think it would
bo wise for Congress at ; once to charter
the Nicaragua Canal Companj' the one
in which General Grant is interested."
"What about refunding " the corres
"Well, I am in favor of refunding all
our bonds that we can, at the veiy lowest
rate practicable for a loug time say; a
hundred years. We could jJrobably place
bonds having that length of time to run
at two ud. one-half, or even perhaps as
low as two per cent. Then we ought j to
curtail thejexpeuses of the government as
much as possible and reduce the taxation
as far1 as practicable," !
"In what way t"
"We ought to begin by -abolisliiug all
internal revenue taxes. ! Thev are a hor
rible fungus, and would never have been
tolerated in this country except as a war
necessity. They ought to be swept out
of existence." I
"What about the tariff T"
"I am in fiivor of a commission to re
vise it- I should like to see the rate of
duty on a good many articles decreased
so us to be no. longer prohibitory, and
some articles" whichare now free should
in my opinion, pay a duty.; But a revis
ion of tle tariff, if accbniplished at all,
must be the work of a com mission."
"What about sil rer coiuage'and jiilver
"Of course I do not agree with the ad
ministration in regard to them," was the
reply. "For my part, T would be glad to
Bee all our circulating notes greenbacks,
bank-notes, etc.,-in the form of coin cer
tificates, every dollar of which should
represent a actual dollar in. the treasury
payable on demand to the holder of the

Hot Water for Plant.
It has long beeu"kuow that the! roots of
plants encased in earth would stand wa-
ter 6o hot as to be quite uncomfortable to
the hand. M. Willermoz in the IJournal
of the Society of Practical Jlprtfcitlture, of

has been' repotting. Hesjt5's wllieu 111
health eusues from acid snbstauces con
tained or generated in the soil, and this
is absorbed by the roots, it acts a!s a poi
son. The small roots are withered and
cease their action, consequently, the up
per and younger shoots of the p;i uts turn
yellow, and the spots with wl ich the
leaves are covered indicate their morbid
state. Iu such cases the usual remedy is
to transplant into fresh soil, clean the
pots carefully, secure good drainage and
often with the best results.! Buttthe ex
perience of several years lias proved with
him the unfailing efficacy of ths j si in pier
treatment, wlticli consists! in filtering
abundantly with hot water jat a temper
ature of about 14o degrees F., having
previously stirred the soil: of the pots so
far as might be done -without injury to
the roots. Water is then j given jtfuiil it
runs freely from the pots.! Ih his' experi

terward itwas sensibly tinged with brown
and gave an appreciable acid iceat ion.

were kept warm. Next day the leaves of
Ficus elastica so treated ceased to droop:
the spread of black spots on their! leaves
was arrested, and three days aftprward,

t. Louis, Jan. 3. Advices from
Graliam, Texas, rciiwrt that the three
McLonakl boys, murderers of a man
nann d Marlin, at Belknap, made a
desptfrate effort to escape from jail
yesterday, which resulted in their
dcatlj and that of a deputy sheriff,
besides the serious wounding of sev
eval bther people. About 10 o'clock
in hfe morning the McDonald boys
were led-from the steel cage to the!
calaboose, and with Jim Boone and
j r . r . . i
Jack Baldwin, two
were given their breakfast by two
deputies. One deputy was testing the
cage viiiie it, was empty, ana tne otn
er'deputv, Davis Melton, stood in the
doorjway of a wood cell opening from
the cilaboose .to the steel cage, he had
a pistol in each hand keeping watch
and presently lie put both revolvers
in onjc hand to get a match from his
poekt. . The McDonalds sprang up-f
on him suddenly and disarmed him,
Iu the. struggle Melton , was shot in
the hand and his cries brought Mur
phy, the other deputy, from the cage
but 4n entering the calaboose he wa?
shot kind instantly killed by the pris
oners. The prisoners then made a
hole through the floor to a room be
low and taking Melton with them be
gan their escape. A blood hound
watcjhes the jail, but by a detour they
avoided him and took their flight in
a southerly direction. By this time
the ity was excited and citizens had
gathered together and followed the
prisoners. The latter placed their
hostage. Melton, behind them aud
threatened to shoot him dead if they
were fired on. Thus the murderers
proceeded some three h u nd red yards
wheh one citizen -deliberately! took aim
atuTlliredj wounding one of the fugi
tives, who fell. Deputy Melton seiz
ed the onnortunitv. broke loose and
ran.!, A genernl fusilade was now bef
gun '.between' -citizens and the escaping
prisoners. The latter entrenched them
selves in the weeds and stumps. The

battle rageu lor some time, ana wnen
the shooting ceased the three McDou
aldsf were dead. Melton was shot
three times ; an old man named Wooci

was'; wounded . in - the thigh, and a
waiter named Joe had a bone of his

took no part in the shooting, an
were recaptured. Graham was

; Every lakcithat I saw in south

where they are frequently shotat they

They visit each other from lake to
lake. jWhen a man, woman or child
overtakes one in the woods the, beast
runs tcj the nearest water. If hemm
ed, he stops, swells add blows like a
mad bull. They handle their tails
right lively in resisting an enemy or
flipping a hog or dog into their great
mouths. I remember asking what
they eat. ! "Anything from a pine
knot dlown," yas the answer, as if a
pine kot? was their highest food.
When their stomachs are opened they
are found to contain pine knots and
black mud from the bottom of the
lakes, i They eat, however, many of

Fiber from the Stalk. V
Mr. Edwin James, ot Brazoria coun
ty, sends the News beautiful specimens
of clean, fiber from cotton and okra
stalksj These specimens were obtain
ed byjthe water-rotting process. Mr.
amesj says, "submersion for a suffi
cient length of time in stagnant wa
ter completely separates the fiber from
its vegetable tissue." The specimen
from the okra is very white, strong,
and about two feet in length. It ap
pears, to be about equal to the fiber of
the ramie in texture, strength and
susceptibility of separation into silk
eirfinehess. That from the cotton
stalk is darker, shorter and coarser,
but very strong, resembling coarse
jute. Mr. Jmcs experience estab
lishes the practicability of separating
the fiber from the woody substance ol
these two plants, without the aid of
machinery, and as water costs noth
ing and the process is simple, it may
be that he has gi veil the cue to a pro
fitable! industry. As he says, "iV
would be curious, audi perhaps, of

was great difficulty in securing good
medical advice, I saw a whole plant

members of a large family , successful
ly treated for diphtheria with kero
sene oil and salt, used thus : Every
patient was given a lump of rock salt
about the size of a boy s marble, and
instructed to keep it in his or her
mouth, swallowing the salty saliva.
At the same time the throat was rubb
ed with kerosene oil, and flannel sat
urated with kerosene kept around the
neck j until the symptoms were abated
or entirely gone. If necessary, mild
cathartics were given. Not a case
was Jost, and there were fully 150 in
all on the plantation.

lJayqjicls in Ireland.
.Louisville Courier journal.
If one-tenth of the "Irish outrages"
reported from the London newspapers
have occurred, the demonstration is
complete that the British government
with all its boasted power, is unable
to protect British subjects iu the Uni-j
ted Kingdom. Fifty thousand sol-
djers are quartered in belaud, about
as many troops as the Government
had iu the Afghanistan campaign, and
Kct according to the government or-
i?ans the outrages still continue. The
situation is strikingly like that wit -
nessed in this country when the
publicans tried to make an Ireland ol
the South. They filled the Southern
States with bayonets and continually
declared that there was no protection
to American citizens. The fraud in
the British case is about as big as that
in the American ease.
