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.

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 other prisoners 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 f 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 . . "'v ' A- ' ' . i i ' 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 i ... - 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, an were recaptured. Graham was scene of terrible excitement during the bloody affray. Tueaty With Mexico.

Near j the settlements where they are frequently shotat they disappear at the approach of man. 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 the best fish and largcstturtles of the lakes.! i ' The; Floridians do net think the "gators" dangerojis. Boys go.intothe lakes swimming where the alligator lives and are hot disturbed. One 12 feet long is considered grown. Down in thejKissiniee river they grow to an enormbus size, having been seen eigh teen feet long. Those that are not accustomed to jiian, I am told, are dansrerojis. I heard of a vounar man that was bitten while swimming in lie Kissimee and soon died. Their eeth occupy a prominent place in Florida jewelry. Some people eat their tails. ; Just before a raiu they are heard to bellow somewhat like a youngjcalf. At midnight they fre quently make a great splashing in the water. Fiber from the Stalk. V Galveston News. 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 great service to the planters of the South to estimate the value, if cured, of millions of pounds of this fiber an nually allowed to go to waste, with the beating down of cotton aud okra stalks-" - Kerosene and Salt for Diph theria.- A correspondent of the N.

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.

New York Times. 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.
