On Friday last a Mr. A. M." Soteldo
and his brother A. C. Soteldo visited
the AVashiugton Republican offite
about 9 o'clock and A. M. Sateldo
showed Mr. Barton the night editor a
paper which he asked him to sign
Barton refused, whereupon Soteldo
clinched him and a scuffi ensued, both
men drawing pistols. The 'younger
Soteldo also drew and commenced fir
ing. The elder Soteldo fell and Barton
and the young Soteldo then clinched
and struggled out on the sidewalk.
A crowd, of course, assembled, Barton
was put in a carriage and sent home
wounded and the younger Soteldo
was arrested and sent to the station
house. On re-entering the room where
the fracus commenced the elder Sotel
do was found lying on a pde of ex
changes shot in the neck at the base
of the brain, and he died Sunday
night. A posi-mortem revealed by
the bullets that the younger Soteldo
must have rircd the fatal bullet that
killed his brother while endeavoriug
to hit Barton. Barton is but slightly
hurt. The Republican had attacked
Soteldo's character and Soteldo had
been writing adverse articles a.nd aid
ing the investigation of the Star-route
frauds. Soteldo was clerk of the sen

' If any teacher in this state is guilty
of such an enormity as to instill into

the sand to do it the State Superinten

size the guilt of such teaching fitly. -

are those advocates of moderate re
form; of a judiciary license law: of

which simply means Temperance con

drink nor at heart sanction the traffic,
but are hileiu through policy, as well
as those whose chief characteristic
seems to be a pitiable inertia, are do

Grapes are the only kind of fruit
which is plentiful and cheap in this
time of extraordinary droatti. A wet
season is what the grape-grower fears.
In dry weather the vines bear abund
antly, and the fruit is large and well
flavored. In California, where not a
-cloud is seen, in the sky from Mey till
October, the grape reaches its greatest
perfection, and many kinds unknown
n our Eastern markets aro cultivated
from stocks brought , from Europe.
There is not much variety with us.
Tbe growers believe . it most profitable
to make no "experiments, and stick to
the standard sorts with which (he public
is familiar. Upon our city fruit stands
and in our markets the Concord ap
pears first and stays longest. Early in
tho ' season lb has the Delaware for a
rival, but this delicious little grape,
.with its red coat and its delicate aro
matic flavor, is not a profitable bearer,
-and it sells for about twice the price of
(the Concord. Later comes tho Catawba,
'an excellent grape, but one too often
Sicked . before its best qualities hare
eveloped. 'Besides these three varieties
there is rarely anything to be seen
save the California grapes, which come
3,000 miles by rail, and are too costly
for general sale. There are a dozen
good varieties to be found in private
vineyards that are rarely seen in cities,
becnusa the men who make a business
of raising grapes have found by experi
ence that it pays best to stick to the
kinds that are hardy and prolific, and
that buyers do not need to be made ac
quainted with, the quantity of grapes
consumed annually for food in this
country is enormous; yet one need not
be very old to remember when a bunch
of grapes was a rarity save upon the
tables of the rich. How much has been
done for American health and thus in
directly for American civilization by
the cheapen mg and popularizing of the
smaller fruits during the past thirty
ye.nrs can hardly be estimated. Boat of
all of them is the'grape.,. It appeals to
the esthetic taste a wall as to the pal
ate; it is grateful to the eye as well as
to lue stonittcu, ana at or o cents a
pound is within reach ' of : tho leaaest

Am living near tiio "Mairie," which

seems that of marrvins:. Continual

to allow carriages to drive inside, en

Village Life in Western India.
In his n.-w work on the "Industrial
Arts of India." Mr.. C. M. Birdwood
says of t' e village:
( '-Oiiii-k't o entram-e of the single
vIII:j ; s r. t t, n an exposed rise of
ii .n t' h-reditary potter sits by
Lis wl.e. 1: j:!w!!irig the swift revolving
clay l v t . ic.tural curves of his hands.
At the back I. houses which form
the low, irrgu!ar street, there are two
or . three lnn at work iu blue and
scarlet and gold, the frames banging
between the acacia trees, tho yellow
flowers of whic i drop fast on the. webs
as they are being woven. In the street
the brass and coppersmiths are ham
mering away at their pots and pans,
and further down, in the veranda of
the rich man's houso, is the jeweler
working rupees and gold roohrs into
fair jewelry, gold and silver earrings,
and round tires like the moon, bracelets
aud tablets and noserings, and tinkling
ornaments for the feet, taking his do-",
signs from the fruits and flowers around
him. or from the traditional forms rep
resented in tho paintings and carvings
of tbe great temple, which rises over
the grove of mangoes and palms at
the end of the street, above the lotus
covered village tank. At half-past 3 or
4 iu the afternoon tbe whole , street is
lighted up by tho moving robes of the
women coing. down to draw water
from the tank, each with two or three
water jars on her head; and so, while
they are going and returning? in sinsrlo
file, the scene glows like' Titian's can
vas, and moves like the stately proces
sion of the Panathenaio frieze. Later,
the men drive in the mild gray kino
from the moaning plain, the looms are
folded np, the coppersmith is silent, the
elders gather in the gate, the lights be
gin to glimmer in the fast-falling dark
ness, the feasting and tbe music are
heard on every side, and late into the
night the songs are sung from the Ka
rri ay an a or Mababarata. The next
morning with sunrise, after the simple
ablutions and adorations, performed ia
the open air before the houses, the tamo
day begins again. This is the daily
life going on all over Western India, in
the village communities of the Dakhan,
among a people happy in their simple
manners and frugal way of life, and in
tbe culture derived from the grand
epics of a religion in which they live
and move and have their daily being,
and in which the highest expression of
their literature, art and civilization has
been stereotyped for 3,000 years." , ,
Pearls on the Pacific Coast.
Every family has strings of fine Dearls

along the shores of tbe Gulf of Califor

The Tollies of Petty Princes.
The destruction of tho petty princi
palities of Germany w a gan to civ
ilization and to de-encv. The great
princes aped tho court of Fr.ncc Ev
ery little prince and there were hun
dreds f them, ruling over kingdoms
which a man could almost walk around
before breakfast imitate I tho great
princes. All lived in extravagance.
and somi! of them in cross sensuality.
T22Sr subjects were expected to exhibit
two virtues, namelr. to obey and to
pay. The follies of some of thesa pet
tv rulers vere so extravagant as to be
One of them. Count Wil iam, furmed
an artificial island and built a citadel
UDoa it. It was elabora'elv construct
ed, aocording to the science of military
engineering. It and its garrison of
three hundred gunners defended a po-
taio-p;itcii, a- abbage-garden. and a
small .observatory with a worthless tel
escope in it.
Another prince, one Gunther, ruled
over seventy-five thousand men, women
and children, who lived on sixteen
' ceoerraDhicai sauare miles, lie built a
palace with three hundred and fifty
rooms, and adorned each room with
several clocks. His exercise was to
wind up each clock.
Tbe prince-was not without humor.
Travellers passing throusrb his little
capital were invited to te court thea
tre. On one occasion, a Prussian ma
jor was silting by the side of tho princo
in his box, smoking a clay pipe, as
the fashion was. The play was a dill
"How do you like it?" asked the
prince. ..
Surpassing well, your sereno high
ness." answered the major, with the
courtesy of a courtier. I should bo
.sorry not to have an opportunity of
I serinsr the piece again.
I vhen the play was concluded the
prince shouted from his box, "Hey!
hey there! Here s a Prussian major
who wants to see the play again; act
it through once more. And the tired
pprfornieas were forced to repeat tho
whole piav.
Prince Gunther prided himself on
his ability as a wrestler, and frequently
exhibited his dexterity before his sub
jects. Of course, his antagonists were
to good courtiers not to let themselves
be thrown. But on one occasion the
prince met with his match.
Seeing in his park a stout farmer. the
prince cuallenged him to wrestle. The
farmer accepted, and in a minute His
Serene Highness was flung sprawling
on the erround.-
"I slipped" on a cherry-stone!" ex
claimed the mortifie 1 prince, with an
oat n, forgetting that it was not tho time
of the year for cherries.
The farmer intimated his willingness
to try another round; but His High
ness, no longer sereno, flew at him with
doubled fists. The by-standers in vain
shouted to the farmer to allow the
prince to trip him up. But he, being
no courtier, entered into the game of
bsticuffs with zeal. At last. His High
ness, with bruised nose and blackened
eve, screamed to his guard, "OiT with
hioito prison!" and the victor paid the
penalty of wrestling with a rrinco by a
forlmsrht s conhnement.
Another of these princes li.ed so cx-
travairantW that at last his whole in-
c mc would not pay the interest on his
erebls. Then he resorted to fraud in
J53ler to raise money. He mo tzajred
a forest of tivo hundred acres,
which bad no existence. He
pawned his villages bv making the
school-children subscribe the names of
their fathers : to bonds binding them
with him to pay interest.
At last, ins crimes became so enor
mous that the Emperor Joseph II. of
Austria bad him tried. Un his convic
tion ho was sentenced to ten years' im
prisonment. When he camo out of
prison, he could afford to keep only one
horso. One day bis solitary attendant
announced that there was no hay in the
loft and no money in the purso.
Well, well," answered the prince,
