A cave-in occurred at Keel Ridge
mine, Michigan, between Quinnesee
and Iron Mountain, the other morn
ing carrying down the engine house
and eight men, as follows: Patrick
Eagan, Richard Williams, WV Hen
derson, John 'Morris, Thos. James,
Eenard Wicks, Jeffree, Wm. Polked.
Only one man (Wicks) had been res

the present writing it is believed the
lives of all the men are lost.
Charles Smith, a farmer living
four miles north of Earlville, Iowa,
killed his two sons with an axe while
at work in the barn. Returning to
the house, with the same weapon he
killed his wife. He then attempted

escaped, and gave the alarm. When
they returned it was found that Smith
had killed himself by cutting his
throat with a butcher knife. No
cause assigned for the deed.

Fears are entertained of a fight
between Apache scouts and rangers
from Tombstone, who are reported
en route to attack the San Carlos In

scouts to be in readiness for a long

The other morning. a disastrous
tornado struck the White Oak, Little
Rock & Ft. Smith railroad, ten miles
west of Ozark, Ark. The wind blew
with a force beyond the power of des

expense of the English government.
The greater part are families,
some of which number eight
or ten persons, while the average is
about five. The' steamer Parthia,
from Liverpool, arrived the other
morning, also brought a large num
ber of the same class of emigrants.
Sixty-nine evicted farmers arrived
the other day at Philadelphia in the
sailing ship Indiana.
The house of James Worrell, who
lives not far from Nebraska City, was
struck the other morning by a cyclone,
raised from its foundation, and car
ried about ten feet away, where it
struck the ground aad Vsbounded,
was carried about thirty feet further
and smashed into kindling wood.
Young Worrell was badly injured in
the back, neck and back of the head.
Miss Smack was badly bruised ia the
back of the neck and one arm broken.
The rest of the family escaped with
slight braises. They lost everything
they had, even their wearing apparel,
which was blown away.

very interesting items on a variety of
subjects. The reader will find sever
al in what follows: We have "been
looking over reports of what Devon
cows have jufit been doing in the but
ter line among us, and find that nine
teen of the cows have been producing
from 15 to 20 lbs., 5 oz. each, of best
quality of butter per week. Consid
ering their medium size and economy
of keep, these are great yields ; but in
years' gone by, there are records of
still larger yields, nearly equalling
those of the most famous Jerseys of
the present day. The Devons, how
ever, not only excel in the dairy, but
in several other respects. They are
very superior as working oxen, have
a quicker step and greater endurance
than any other breed, and are the
most powerful of all for their size.
The. only other cattle that can be com
pared to them in uniting so many
superior qualities are the Red Polled
Norfolk and Suffolk, which, in fact,
are hornless Devons.

Uoa ware put anon the muscles of the
hone. Most farmers aeglect the gar
dea for their Held crops. The advan
tage of a frequent stirriag of the sur
face soil to growing crops is greatly
underestimated. It is said that it
pays to hoe cabbage every morning
before breakfast during the early part
f the season.
There Is nothing better for laying
hens ia the spring than milk, after the
cream has been taken off. We have
tried it several seasons with complete
success.- With the milk given fresh
from the dairy-room every day, the
fowls will need no other drink, and it
will supply everything required ia the
way of animal food. The pullets fed
with milk and corn, and a mixture of
corn meal and milk, through the cold
weather, have given an abundant sup
ply of eggs. We have als6 found
milk one of the best kind of diets for
young chickens, seoa after they come
from the nest, to promote their health
and rapid growth. As a general rule
eggs are worth twenty-five cents a
dozen, and poultry twenty cents a
pound in the east, when pork brings
but ten cents a pound.
Horace Greeley was always going a

life abruptly terminated. The ten
sioned cords which received no relax
ation, suddenly snapped asunder.
There is no other diversion, perhaps,
which affords so much relaxation for
men of all nations) classes, and ages of
people as fishing in all its various
ways and methods. One would
scarcely believe it that a work just
published gives the names of 2,496
different volumes on fishing. Per
haps the most interesting of all these,
next to Isaac Walton's, is the volume
soon to be brought out in this country
written by the late David Foster, of
Burton-on-Trent, England, who gives
vivid descriptions of salmon, trout
and pike fishing.
Newspaper correspondents are hav-
ine considerable to sav about Prosi-
deut Arthur just now, particularly
concerning his old-time political
friends, and his "break" with them
-since he entered the White House.
"They do say" that representative
Crowley was the last of these, and
that some two weeks ago, while at
the White House, he considered some
thing done or omitted to be done as a
snub aud went away in high dudgeon.
The gossippy correspondent adds that
the President longs for the period
when he shall shake the dust of the
White House from his feet, and go
out into the world and enjoy himself,
just like other men.
It would be well for our presidents
and the aatioa which they serve if
our presidents would not try
so much . to be unlike their
real selves. Of course theirs is
a high responsibility, and any man,
however great his abilities, may well
doubt the fullness of his capacity for
the service required of him; never
theless, he should exact from his
fellow citizens the-privilege and right
of being a man among men, as well as
a chief among public functionaries.
Public duties and calls must not be so
absorbing as to reduce the official to
a mere manikin, always dressing for
effect upon the crowd of tuft-hunters.
The Journal does not believe that
President Arthur need concern him
self much with this talk. His admin
istration, so far, in its prominent
features, has met the very strong,
cordial approval of the people, and if
some or all of Mr. Chester Arthur's
former chums are not pleased there
with, more's the pity for them. The
tone of the President's administration
has been good- and of good effect. He
has bad the manliness to freely ex
press his honest opinions, when the
expression of them required a con
siderable measure of courage, and for
this the American people will always
honor the memory of their present

Editor Journal : It is some time
since I gave you a letter and now I
can say the most of the people arc re
joicing in the prospect of one of the
best crops California has produced.
The wheat iu this county and iu fact
all our section from Tresno south, to
Red Bluff north, in this valley and in
Los Angeles and coast counties, the
general report is good. In this coun
ty I have made two trips of some
length, and can say the outlook is
splendid ; from any point almost rich,
dark grain, wheat shows itself as far
as the eye can reach. The vision is
splendid: Early now heading out,
and the copious rains insure with a
few showers the late sown, as ground
is wet. Wheat has become the lead
ing interest in this state ; miuiug takes
a back seat, and we can count by
thousands the parties that have got
left'on mining-stocks. Good costly
farm buildings are taking the place of
the make-shift shantieB of earlier
times. Wind mills and fences and
water pipes to irrigate the fruit and
shrubbery come in order, and many
fine country mansions, surrounded
by the waving acres of wheat, have
changed the outlook all about, and
the land is farmed much better and
where 10 bushels was considered a
fair crop, they now often get 20 and
25 to reward their labor ; three times
plowing, first 6 to 8 Inches, second
shallow to kill weeds and keep mel
low, and last to sow; this shows
wheat that does one good to nee, and
can stand almost any drouth we have,
if got in before January.

Prof. Mezzrofp, the nihilist and
head leader of the Irish dynamite
party, who recently arrived at New
York from Europe, gives a wonderful
account of what this dynamite party
could accomplish in a brief period.
He said if England did not lose her
hold on Ireland his party would leave
I her a mass of ruius ; that a dozen men
could destroy London in a night by
a chemical fire and dynamite, and
they meant to do it. He declared
they would blow every English man-of-war
and all merchant marine flying
the British flag aud plying between
British ports or ou the seas. They
could do this without breaking inter
national law and irrespective of where
they themselves were located. At a
trifling expense every harbor in Eng
land could be fired. Then they would
blow up every bank in England and
take 'possession of the gold, $95,000,
000 a year, that England bad forcibly
plundered from Ireland. In closing,
he said they bad England completely
at their mercy and had given her
warning. If she did not take it, then
her doom would be on her own head.
