Near Cedar Mufls, In Cedar county,
Iowa, on Scwoll (lower's farm.thoro aro
three mounds, each about 2A foot In di
ameter. They hnvu loug boon objects
of curiosity among tho people in that

opened through tho center of ono of
them, which resulted In tho discover'
of human bones, tho larger ones Wing
best preserved, nuil of such slzu as,)to
indicate that thoy wore tho remains of
a man of gigantic sizo. Dr. Simplo, of
Tipton, on comparing thorn with sim
ilar parts of a skeleton In his posses

known to havo been six feet In height,
thinks tho newly-dlsoovered remains

a subject of so muoh speculation among
Professors Peckham aad Peok, before

burst the flour dust-room, producing
at the same time a shook that iarred
) the dust into the air all over the mill,
and also a mass of flame which passed
a from story to story, until the dust
In the mill was Ignited from top to bot
tom. The finest dust burning instant
ly, ignited the less fine particles, whloh,
by their more gradual combustion,
produced an increasing expansive force,
whloh nothing could withstand. Prof.
Peck's statements consists in the main
of a report of an exhaustive series of
experiments upon different sorts of
mill dust, under various conditions, to
test Us explosive capacity, the conclu
alone agreeing with those above. He
adds a long series of recommendations
as to aaltabte precautions to prevent a
reonmnoe of such explosion.

to believe that the United States will depart
from the observance of the rules of tho Wash

cussing Uie responsibility resting on the gov

there Is no reason to suppose they would vio
late their respective agreements. The London

It becomes every day more and more an Im

but in tubttance It must bo conceded.
A Constantinople dispatch of May
2Ist aays: An official dispatch to the Turkish
representaUvo abroad In relation to the trouble
which took place In that city Is, that about 30
refugee entered the Oardcn of Isalace, Inhab
ited by the ex-Sultan Murda, and raided shouts
ot ''Loug live the Sultan." The sentinels of
tho palace opposed tho entry of these men and
tired upon them, one being killed. Tho troops
arriving, tho assailants wore beaten. Some
were killed and wounded on both side. All
Buvta, who appears to have acted a the leader
and organizer of tho attack, was killed. Tho
aQalr had no other consequences, anh the pub
lic tranquility wa undisturbed. A Pcrmtpeclal
say twenty-one were klllek and seventeen
wounded tu Uio affair.
Tho Husso-Turklsh commission which
It waa reported hail failed to agree upon a line
ot demarkatlon between Uie Turkish and Rut

gerous proximity ot the two armies. The Rus
sian and Turkish soldiers, where toe line are
In coutact, fraternise cordially, and no trouble
It apprehended, despite the failure ot the com
mission to agree. But It waa thought advisa
ble to have Uie Bne further apart and store
precise regulaUon.
Constantinople dispatches of May 22,
give tome further parUculars ot the affair be
fore Tcheragan Palace, May 90th. Aa far aa
can bo gathered there waa an organised con
spiracy to restore Murad, who was tn the Tch
eragan Palate at Uie time, Murad denies any
knowledge of the conspiracy reported, but hat
since been removed to Topkafon. The num
ber of revolutionists it variously esUmated at
front 100 to 500, though the government In a
circular to the Turkish, representative abroad
says Uie number was SO. Correspondents agree
that Uie attempt, a a political demonstration,
was s complete failure. All Siert, Uie leader
and organiser of the osovetaeat, was a hM
beaded ad rente ret who bad Wen several time
exiled. He lived toss yesrs la London and
Parts and engaged la Journalism: wss recalled
to Constantinople after the aeress'tm to Uie
throne of Abdnl Hamld. appointed director of

agement, ne became popular among the ref

Ui aid the Rbodopbe Insurgents, he secured s
sufficient number of adherents to nuke the
attempt- The pet sons arretted are said to be
cimromfed by papers found In All Suart's
bouie after his death. The affair crested utter

prominent offlrlslsof the Bensklerate were ab

At a reception given by tho Russian
Amtaadnr In Constantinople, tn resident
Hu'Klans, May 19, he made a speech and ex
preed strong hopes of peace. He recom
mended them, however, not to I too sanguine,
a the situation was still oue of grest tension
The KuMiant Insist thst the movements of
their troop are not Intended as hostile, hut
the Turks are, notwithstanding, hard at work,
strengthening their lines and bringing up gust
This Is ii ot easy, as the Turkish line of defense
from the Bra of Marmora to the Black Sea Is
so long, and while the Turkish force about the
capital Is superior to the Russian, It Is hardly
tifllclent to man such a length of line. The
Turks will he mon reinforced however, by the
forty battalions released In Thessly and 20
battalions from Versa. A correspondent at
Pera rays there are no apprehensions of a Rus
sian coup de main.
A St. Petersburg dispatch of May 20,
says: While there Is reason to believe Uie
foundation of arrangement have brrn laid be
tween the cabinet of London and St. Peters
burg, a small group of parsonages who know
whst ha occurred maintain extreme reerve
and It Is extremely difficult to sy how fsr, It
various rumors are to lie relied on. Hm.lan
official psjwrs relterste the statement that the
moemcnU of the army before Constantinople
are not hostile and menacing.
Reports nro current at Vienna of
fresh complications In ttoumanla. It l stated the Russlsn Kleventb Army Corps lias du
ring the past week lcen pressed forwsrd so as
to entirely btolate Burhsrrst from Little A'al
lachla, where the Itotimsnlon army Is concen
trated. The Rnsslai' diplomatic representative
used every effort to prewnt Prince Charles
from going tn the army, but the tatter's posi
tion will he made Intolerable by the military
and political control aisurnrd by the Rtinstans
ill the capital and the country. It Is uurrtcd
that tho Russians are mylng the Roumanians
to refuse to pay taxes and to dethrone Prince
Charles, whom they denounce ns a Herman and
a Catholic; but popular feeling Is entirely In
sympathy with the Prince. Roumstila Is look
ing anxiously tn Austria, which does not seem
disposed, for the present, at least, to go beyond
the concentration of troops and strengthening
the Transylvaulan frontier.
A 8t. Petersburg dispatch of May 22,
says: The Agence Russeand Journal de St.
Pctcrthurg warn the public against pessimist
'news from Constantinople, where endeavors are
being made to prevent an understanding tie
tween England and Russia. The Cxunnwltch,
In a telegram, thanks the Moscow Association
of Merchants for a coutrlbutlou of 400,0)10 rouj
blea toward Uio formation of a volunteer fleet.
The Emperor, on Uie 'i'H. received the Sliah ot
A St. Petersburg dlspnth of May 23d
says: A St. Petersburg correspondent writes :
We are stilt far from a certainty of peace,
though the general conviction and sentiment
are In favor thereof. There are powerful mili
tary preparations ttelng pushed forward ener
getically, and the Ruslans continue to exhibit
a tendency to gradually creep up towanls Uie
capital, keeping tho Turks constantly on Uie
alert. Fresh reinforcements aro constantly
going to Bulgaria and Roumella. Odessa Is
swarming with soldiers and shipping troops,
guns and stores, which are going thence to ljur
gas,on the Black Sea, or by the Central railway
to Roumanla and Bulgaria. The Turks ore not
Idle. They have brought troop across tho
Bosphorusfrom Scutari, until one hundred and
thirty battalion now mar northern lines.
