HE DIED OF CANCEL
A Post Mortom Develops the Nature
of Frederick's Maladay-
liEittis, Juue 18. The emperor nnd
crnprens, accotnj)anie(l by I)ovage Kin
jresn Augustn, the grantl duke and grand
duchcHs of Baden, and other royalties
visited Japer gallery this morning,
while they were assembled around the
bier of the dead monarch, Chaplain
Keeglef offered a brief prayer. The post
mortem examination was confined to the
examination of the neck, larynx and
lungs. In the larynx, which was found
to have been destroyed by suppuration,
was a larife cavity. Dr. MacKen.ie states
in his report that the disease was beyond
doubt cancer of the larynx. He adds
that the diagnosis was rendered very dif
ficult, as the disease attacked the car
tilage of the larynx at the outset and
afterwards developed chiefly in the lower
part of the cartilage. The National
Zeituntj says that the antopsy proved
th.it the larynx was completely destroyed
by the cancer, and that putrid bronchitis
existed. There was nlso inflamation of
the finer rauiifiicatioDs of the bronchial
tubes, into which the peltrescent particles
had entered. Tho whole larynx, as in a
state of suppuration and presented n soft,
lumpy mass, with scarcely any trace of
the artilaginous structure remaining.
The choking sensation from which the
emperor suffered during his last days,
which was attributed tQ tl;c perferatiou
of the wall separating the trachea nnd
oesophagus, appears to haye been really
due to collapse of the larynx, owing to
the destruction of the cartilage. The
direct cause of death is given as paraly
sis of the lumjs.

Jetmohe, Kan., June 18. Tuesday
night a negro was taken from his home
in the southeast part of this, Hodgeman,
county a mile or more into the country
by some ten or a dozen white men who
proceeded to treat hln tq a full and un
stinted cpat of tar r,nd feathers.. John
and Mike Gleason were arrested and
brought to this city Saturday night
upon the charge of having participated
in the mob. It is claimed that the negro
was a notorious thief aud a neighbor
The most intense excitement still pre
vails in this city and the entire east half
of the county over the killing of Thomas
Andrews by John Studtbaker. Every
night for more than a week a mob of
more than 100 men from the neighbor
hood of the killing haa been expected in
Jetmore, determined on lynching Stude-
baker. Sheriff Gil land is determined to
protect him at all hazards, and last night
some 200 citizens gathered at the court
house in this city and expressed them
selves as fully determined to stand by
the sheriff in protecting the prisoner
from mob violence. It looks now as
though more blood would be shed be
fore the trouble nds.
Those who know most about the fact3
rn the casa are divided in opinion ns to
the degree of Studebakcr's guilt, as it is
believed by some that he is insane, while
justification is claimed by others.
Some forty of the best citizens armed
with Winchester rifles and shot guns,
guarded over the jail all Saturday night.

AN ANECDOTE OF WEBSTER.
Some of the Legal Methods and Arra
taenia of the Great Expounder.
One of the very best anecdotes of Daniel
Webster as illustrative of that exalted and
exalting character which bis mind pre em
ineutly poaseused was told by the late St
Oeorge Tucker Campbell, of Philadelphia
himself a lawyer of great and deserved dis
Mr Tucker said that having been re
tallied In a nomewhat famous case at th
time with Mr Webster, wbo was detained tij
his senatorial duties at Washington, the con
duct of the case through all the preliminaries
devolved upon him, it beiu agreed that Mi
Webster should deliver the i-ltming urgumi-itt

oy without bringing the great expounder
until the very last day before tbnt on wliici

A uf? for Hear Life.
Some weeks after returning tf the for
Hen. Kmery, wbo vas ia eoiiiii.aii.l nf tli.
listriet, ordered me to make a nn:t a.-- f:i
iver as Frenchman's Fork, eighty mile an a
I sua r ted alone, lending Joe for my w:u n.ir
ird for a run home if jumped by the n il
iioys. 1 struck the Fork in the night, an;,
'hiding a quiet little place in the tiend ol th.
river. I campeL At the break tit day I
limbed a tall tree near by to take a look u,
ind down the river I had diintied aUu
hirt feet, when I saw several streaks o
due snioko ri?ing up Uipougb the tree
not a half mile away I slid out o
that tree mighty quickly, and. runtiiiii
ip to Joo, soon bad bim saddled. 1 bad U
find out the size of that village, howevei , oi.
nake ni) report to the general 1 tied Jje t.
i tree and crept up a high hill, from the t
f which 1 bad a good view of it. Then, with
ill of the information I wanted. I started foi
Joe, when 1 espied a band of Indians coming
up the ravine in which Joe was tied. They
were not a mile away, but had not discovered
me. The grass didn't grow under my feet
hile 1 was getting dowu the hill to Joe, and
we wero soon making lively tracks cut ot
that ravine. The Indians came on quietly
until they came to the tree to which Job had
been tied. Then they saw the fresh trail
running up the ravine.
In a second they were after ma There
were about forty of them out on a buffalo
bunt and mounted on their best horses. 1
had no time to go after the horse which 1
had tied further oflC 1 would soon have tc
leave the ravine and get out on the level
prairie, which stretched away for miles, and
where 1 could be easily seen. When 1 got out
on the level ground I pat Joe to his best 1
kept looking back and when 1 was about a
mile and a half out on the prairie the In
diana came in sight. They saw me at once
and on tbey cama, I knew it was to be a
long race, for 1 was fifty miles from any
white man. The Indians never got any closer
to me than they were when tbey started, but
they would not give up, thinking that my
horse would surely give out. But they were
mistaken, Joe held his own. They chased me
within about ten miles of the fort before tbey
gave up. 1 bad run Joe at least forty miles
with hardly a stop. 1 thought the run would
kill him, but two days afterward when the
troops were ready to go after the Indians Joe
was ready to go also. When we got back to
the Frenchman the Indian village was gone.
1 went where 1 bad left the horse tied to the
tree some days before. 1 expected the In
dians bad found him, but they bad not. The
poor brute was there and nearly dead for
water. He had eaten everything i his reach,
but could not break the strong rope to get to
water. He got well, however, and 1 rode bim
hundreds of miles afterwards. Buffalo Bill's
fault of Amvriran Workmen
This is one great fault of American work
men, and the reason why there are so many
"average men." When day's work Is
done, instead of taking a mechanical paper
and sitting down at their own homes, to im
prove their minds and keep posted on wbat
is going on in the great world around them,
they reason something after this fashion:
"We poor laboring meu have no time to our
selves, no time for pleasure or recreation: no
lime to enjoy ourselves, we cant afford to
take the trade papers, and we have no time
to read them If we do. When our day's work
is done we want to have a little time to our
What does this mean? It means simply
this, that the man who makes such an argu
ment is one who is satisfied with being a
slave to his own foolishness, blind to his own
interests, and who will spend rrom one to
three or four hours every evening upon the
street, in the saloon or out with the boys, lie
has plenty of time for this, but no time to
read, he Las plenty of money for such cul
ture, but is very poor when it comes to the
subject of mental and moral culture. A, U.

To ItrWlge the English Channel.
Beside the long mooted project of a sub-
marina tunnel between France and England,
which has been postiKjned to an tndefinits
future, there has been for several veurs a
scheme agitated for bridging the channel be
tween France and England by a structure of
fabulous extent. This proposed railway
bridge will begin at Cape Oris-nez. near
Calais, and end at Folkestona It will be
nearly twenty-five milt long, and r on
seveuty piers with lighthouse towers. Four
railway tracks will l Ukl on this bridze at
height ot J,50 ieet above the sea level.
wh9h wid thus givediroct railway comniuni
cation between Euglnnd and the continent,
and the dreaded channel passage, which is
the bugbear of sensitive travelers, will be a
thing of the past. The cost of this gigantic
piece of engineering, which, wheu completed.
will be without precedent or parallel, will
exceed a millard ol francs. Uomorest's

A little girl, 9 yeai-s old, was spending tb
summer in a country boarding bouse, where
she became a great favorite with the othe;
guests. One of them, a young gentleman
was so devoted that his attentions bacanw
quite annoying to her.
One day she said to ber mother, "Do you
think Mr. Brown ought to call me a pun
"Why, no, my dear," replied her mother,
somewhat shocked, "of course not! Hut are
you sure he did? You must be ruistakeu,"
"No, 1 am not," said the little one,

A Fight to the Deatiu

center of an aquarium in a recent expert

The beetle soon afterward renewed the at
