Divorcrp. By Madeleine Vinton Dahlgren. Bu
ford, Clarke & Cos., New York Publishers.
In this little vojume of 212 pages Mrs.
Dahlgren presents a very interesting story.
The leading thought of it is the evils which
flow from divorce. A divorced man mar
ries a self-willed, but loveable girl,‘she being
under the impression that he is a'widower.
She discovers the truth within an hour after
the marriage and leaves him. The subse
quent troubles which In-set them ate woven
into a very readable romance.
Nana, sequel to “L'Assonnnoir;” by Emile
Zola. One volume, paper cover. Price 73c.
L. B. Peterson & Bros., publishers, Philadel
“Nana” is a very popular story, aside
from the fact that it is a continuation of
“L’Assommoir,” and will therefore be read
by all who have perused the latter work.
The character of the story itself is sufficient
ly fascinating to attract for it universal at
tention. “Nana” is a careful study of the
life aud manners of a certain class of peo
ple, ordinarily designated as those of elegant
leisure. The heroine is a variety actress,
whose face and figure create a furore among
the fashionable Parisians, who follow her
on and off the boards as if she were a veri
table queen. Her life is a life of perpetual
excitement and uninterrupted pleasure, por
trayed with an intensity of graphic delinea
tion which is almost terrible to realize.
The Forum for September has a number
of interesting and valuable articles. Among
them are the following: The Sixteenth
Amendment, Senator J. J. Ingalls; Is
Canada Misgoverned i The Minister of tho
Interior; Concerning Men, the author of
“John Halifax, Gentleman;” What is the
Object of Life? Prof. E. I). Cope; Ameri
can Geographical Names, Bishop A. Cleve
land Coxe; Great Telescopes, Prof. C. A.
Young; Ignatius Donnelly’s Comet, Prof.
Alexander Winchell. The Forum Publish
ing Company, No. 97 Fifth Avenue, New
The leading paper in the Magazine of
American History for September is a bio
graphical sketch of the distinguished Revo
lutionary officer. Gen. James M. Varrnun,
from the pen of Judge Advocate Asa Bird
Gardiner, U. S. A., L.L. D. The handsome
portrait of the General forms the frontis
piece to the number, and his historic home
in Rhode Island, and the tine portrait of his
brother, also a man of distinction in mili
tary and political life, are among the superb
illustrations. The seooud article, “How
California Was Secured,” by the renowned
Hubert Howe Bancroft, will command at
tention. Nothing in this number, however,
will attract more genuine appreciation than
the fourth paper, entitled “Union, Seeessiou,
Aliolition, as illustrated in the careers of
Webster, Calhoun, Sunnier,” by W. M.
Dickson of Cincinnati. “A Patriotic Par
son” is a biographical sketch by Rev. Dr.
Lamson. The shorter papers are of much
importance, “H. C. VanSchaak’s Historical
Treasures,” notably ;’ and “Original Docu
ments'* contain the “Memorandum of Route
pursued by Golonel Campbell in 1779, from
Savannah to Augusta Georgia,” annotated
by Colonel Charles C. Jones, Jr., LL. D., 743
Broadway N. Y.
Babyland tor September is full of pretty
and attractive illustrations, which are well
calculated to interest children. D. Lothrop
& Cos., Boston.
The September Eclectic recommends it
self by a goodly table of contents. The
place of honor is given to a collection of
Emin Bey’s letters from Central Africa,
which throw light on the career of this re
markable man, to whose relief Stanley has
gone. Frederick Harrison makes a protest
againt the vandalism bidden in the attempts
to restore ancient buildings, in themselves
masterpieces. The article on “Gold” is of
considerable interest, and Holman Hunt’s
bit of autobiography—an account of his
painting his great picture, “The Scape
goat”—will be read with attention by lovers
of art. The author of the article on “Flags
and Banners” brings together a good
deal of curious and archaeo
logical knowledge. "Theocritus in Sicily”
is a charming sketch, and readers
will find quaint interest in the story of
“The Twins,” which the writer locates in
China. “Salvation by Torture at Kair
wan” is a picturesque chapter from Mo
hammedan superstition. E. R. Pelton, 25
Bond street, New York.
Scribner's Magazine , for September,
opens with a fully illustrated article on
“The Modem Nile,” by Edward L. Wilson,
one of the most enthusiastic and skilful of
travelers and photographers. September
being the month in which occurs the centen
nial of the federal constitution, Mr. Mon
cure D. Conway’s article, entitled “An Un
published Draft of a National Constitution
by Edmund Randolph, Found among the
Papers of George Mason,” is especially
timely. Mr. E. H. House, who for many
years was a resident in Japan, where he was
engaged in journalism and business,
has contributed a charming story
of Japanese life, entitled “The Sacred
Flame of Torin Ji.” At the opening of the
collegiate year the thoughtful essay on the
“Development of tho American University,”
by Prof. George T. Ladd, of Yale, will be
read with unusual care and profit by those
interested in the subioct of higher' educa
tion. The Action of this number includes a
striking and unusually strong story of a rail
road engineer’s fight against the corporation
to recover damages for injuries received
while in its service. It is entitled “Flan
droe's Mogul,” and the author is a Virginia
lawyer, Mr. A. C. Gordon. Charles Scrib
ner’s Sons, New York.
The September number of Harper's
Magazine opens with an attractive article
on “Riding in New York,” by a New York
equestrian, xxith a number of spirited illus
trations from T. de Thulstrup. The writer
reviews the growth of horsemanship in the
metropolis, aud pleasantly describes the
prevailing fashions of riding, and the facili
ties afforded for this exercise in the park,
the roads, and the clubs of the city. The
frontispiece of the number is a beautiful
illustration of Wordsworth’sjsonnet, “The
River Duddou,” by Alfred Parsons. Dr.
XVheatley shows that there is such a thing
as “Home Rule ir. the Isle of Man,” by
which the Island of Mona has for a long
time governed itself with in
creasing independence. Blanche Willis
Howard furnishes the first half of a
humorous novelette called “Tony, the
Maid,” which is illustrated by Reinhart.
“Th“ South American Yankee” is an admi
rabl article on Chili ana the Chi llanos, by
a South American traveler, William Eleroy
Curtis, xvith a profusion of illustrations.
Charles Dudley Warner introduces the
“Drawer” with a piece of delicate sarcasm
upon “The Modem Student’s Aids to De
velopment.” The antipodes of Chili is also
excellently written up by Dr. Lansdell, in
his illustrated article on “The Sons of the
Steppe,” or the inhabitants of lower Sibe
ria. The number is extraordinarily rich in
short stories. Harper & Bros., New York.
Poisoned by a Man’s Bite.
f\om the New York Tribune.
Louis H. Milbrook, a grocer of No. 91
Tenth avenue, was a complainant against
Charles Possehl, aged 35, an oil refiner, of
the same address, at Jefferson Market Po
lice Court. On Aug. 17, during an alterca
tion in Milbrook's store, Possehl bit the
right hand of Mrs. Jane Milbrook, the wife
of the grocer. It is believed that blood
poisoning lias set in, and the hand and arm
are swollen and painful. She has been con
fined to her bed, and is lying at present
dungerously ill and unable to appear in
court. Dr. McNellly. of 309 West Nine
teenth street, her physician, regards her
condition as critical. Possehl accused Mil
brook of assaulting him, but tho latter
proved conclusively that lie merely defended
his wife. As Possehl was bitinj? the woman’s
hand at the time, and it required two more
men to bar him away, Justice Duffy held
that Milbrook was justified. and discharged
bint Pos chl was committed to prison,
without bail, to await examination.

A Splendid Grove of 300,000 Trees in
From an Unknaum New Jersey Exchange.
There is nothing that can be grown but
what somebody else will raise it, and Jersey
matt seem to be ahead, especially in growing
the sober-lookiug coeoanut, which Sinbad
gathered by throwing stones at the mon
keys, who bombarded him with the fruit in
return. Ezra Osborne, of Middleton, N. J.,
an enterprising farmer, has now more than
300,000 trees planted in Dade county, Fla.,
next to the Atlantic ocean, covering nearly
4,000 acres, which will come in bearing in
seven years, xvhen each tree, it is believed,
will produce annually §4, making it one
of the most productive operations in the
Trees are more productive in Florida than
anywhere else, and Mr. O. deserves great
success for his pluck and energy. His loca
tion is along the ocean in Dade county, Fla.,
backed by bays, rivers'and lakes, making it
one of the most picturesque and beautiful
places in the country. This is especially
true of the whole Biscaxme region, aud the
thousand picturesque islands or keys formed
bv the coral reefs which crop out at tho sea
all the way from Cape Florida to Key West,
a distance of 150 miles.
Along these keys ottr own citizens, Messrs.
T. A. and E. A. Hine, of AVoodside, have
purchased and planted some of
the finest localities. On Long
Key they bought last year a grove
of 13,000 trees, which were put out four to
six years ago, many of which are now from
ten to twenty feet high, and will lie in bear
ing three or four x r ears hence. This is the
oldest and finest planted grove of coeoanut
trees in Florida. These gentlemen own the
whole of Sander’s Key, and have made vari
ous other purchases along the coast, for the
planting of which they are now negotiating
in Central and South America, for cargoes
of seed nuts. New Jersey, and especially
its metropolis, is well represented in this
new industry, and is deeply interested in its
If that region were at all accessible, it
xvould soon be taken up by xvintor tourists
and persons wishing to get into a mild cli
mate, but the transportation now is such it
is almost impossible to visit that country.
This past winter has proved that from Jupi
ter Inlet to Key West is about tho only place
along that coast exempt from the cold. The
Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West railroad
has been lately opened to Indian river. The
Florida railroad is being built to Indian
river, and probably before long fall bo ex
tended to the Florida Keys via the Atlantic
Coast, which wall open up for tropical scen
ery and tropical agriculture the best and
grandest part of this country.
Tropical fruits of all kinds can be grown
here, it being the only safe place, on account
of climate, in the United State*. The list
of tropical products is a long one, and very
profitable to grow, briuging in net returns
of Several hundred dollars an acre. When
a Jersey Yankee starts in he is bound to be
ahead. There will be quite an emigration
to the tropical region next fall from this
State. It is a capital place for the Knight*
Tom Harrity’s Lucky Slug.
From the San Francisco Post.
“Speaking of superstitions,” said the
Judge, “we used to havea queer lot of them
in early days. Off in the camps we were worse
than sailors, and you know a sailor is as full
of superstitions as a sheep is of ticks. It
was a hardy miner that would have started
out on a prospecting tour on Friday.
Some of the boys laughed at the idea, but
they obeyed it as religiously as the next
‘ “There ain’t nothin’ in it,’ old Shorty
Forbes; used to say, ‘but there mout be.
Thar’ain’t no use o’ riskin’ your luck, if you
got any, and anyways Saturday is just as
good a day as you can find.’
“Most of the boys had ‘lucky stones,’ or
something that answered for ’em. Gener
ally they were medals or lockets they had
brought from home. They were supposed
to have in them some of the good wishes of
the folks they had left behind. Some
times it was a slug that had often turned the
luck at the gambling table. Tom Har
rity, who usually went as Hairy Tom, had
an old, battered #SO slug that he used to tell
wonderful lies about.
“There might a’ been something in it,”
mused the Judge. “I don’t know. Least
ways, Tom never lost it. He never played
it until he got dead broke, but it always
brought the dust. He wouldn’t have taken
SSOO for that slug. One daj T he paid it out
by mistake iu settling for an outfit, and by
George you ought to have seen that camp
hum when he found it out. The fellow had
gone, and it took Tom half a day to find out
which road he had taken. Well, he chased
that fellow half way to Sacramento, but you
bet he got him. He pursuatied the fellow to
swap the lucky slug for two others by stick
ing a six-shooter under his nose. ’Twas a
pretty good trade for the fellow, too, let
alone the six-shooter business, for tho
slug mighn’t have been so luck}' with him
Leastways, I’ve never hoard of it since Tom
“Still, you can’t tell as to that. There
was a young fellow came into camp, and he
was a fresh one. The second night he was
there he steered into the Bucking Tigar sa
loon and run up against the tiger itself. It
took him about half an hour to put #7OO in
to the bank, and as that was his last cent he
looked mighty pale about the gills. Tom
took in the situation, and hauled out his six
shooter and his slug. He tossed the slug on
“ ‘Play that, young fellow,’ he said, ‘an’if
you loose it, d—u you I’ll blow the hull top
of your head off.’
“He played it and won.
“Play it again,’ said Tom, lowering the
hammer to half cock; ‘the hull pile.’
“ ‘Plav it again,’ he ordered, when the sec
ond trial resulted happily.
“It won again.
“ ‘Once more,’ ordered Tom.
“It won for the fourth time.
“ ‘Gimme that slug,’ said Tom. ‘Now
git! and don’t ye look at a card again as
long as you live. Ye ain’t got any luck.’
Ho dropped the slug back into his 'pocket..
and the young fellow left camp next morn
Fleecing a Loan Company.
From the Macon (Ga.) News.
The foreign land loan companies have
done a tremendous business in and about
Macon. I know of 'inly one case where the
borrower got decided advantage of the
lender. The rule with tho companies is to
advance only one-third the value of the
property. The land in question belonged to
a well-known aud clever farmer, on which
a popular merchant had a mortgage of
about S6OO, considerably past due. The
land is worth about S7OO. The highest bid
ever made for it was SSOO, aud that, was by
a farmer whose plantation joined the lan4i
and he could afford to offer more for it than
any one else. The merchant, tired of carry
ing the loan, proposed to the mortgagor
that he obtain a flvo-year loan through one
of the land companies to the amount of
SBOO, if possible, and thus pay off the mer
chant’s mortgage, and have some cash lie
sides for other purposes, and be given flvo
years of grace, provided interest was paid
The merchant selected a certain land loan
agent through whom to effect tho loan, con
stantly and incidentally praised the farm
of his customer as one of the finest in the
country, worth about #2,500, and suggested
that its owner was desirous of effecting a
loan. Finally a loan of SBOO was obtained
on tho S7OO place, the mortgage of SSOO to
the merchant was paid, and the fanner had
some spare change to put in his pocket. He
has since died, two interest payment* have
gone by default, and bis widow is now
claiming a year’s support, dower, or some
thing of the sort, and after court expenses
and defaulted interest are churged up, I
don’t think the company will make very
much out uf their loan. This was a case of 1

CAPTURE OF A SLAVE DHOW.
Gallant Fisrht Made by a Boat’B Crew
of a British Cruiser.
From the London Times of Aug. 13.
A dispatch from Capt. R. Woodward, C.
8., senior naval officer at Zanzibar, giving
particulars of the capture of an Arab dhow
and fifty-three slaves by Lieut. F. F. Fegen,
in the pinnace of her majesty’s ship Tur
quoise, at Pemba, on May 30, was published
iu last night’s Gazette. On the pinnace
reaching tne dhow the slaves attempted to
run it down with the intention of carrying
her bv boarding. Lieut. Fegen immediately
rushed forwara to repel the Arabs (the
dhow having caught the pinnace’s forestay
with the bowsprit), seven of whom were
ready to board. He promptly shot two
with his revolver, then drew his cutlass and
ran another through the body. AVhile thus
engaged he received a very severe sword
cut on the right arm from an Aral) who
came to assist tho one he was engaged with.
This Arab was run through the oody by
John W. Pearson, A. 8., before he had time
to inflict further injury. Notwithstanding
his severe wounds, Lieut. Fegen still con
tinued fighting xvith his cutlass until the
dhow got clear (at this time there were
three men in the bottom of the boat wound
ed), the remainder of the crew, three in
number, fighting hard and supporting him.
When tne dhow got clear nine Arabs had
already been killed. No sooner had this oc
curred than she endeavored to escape. Lieut.
Fegen, picking up his dingy, gave chase,
and a running fight was maintained until
the helmsman of the dhow was shot, when
she broached to and capsized in shallow
water. He immediately anchored his boat
as near the sunken dhow as possible, and
proceeded to rescue the slaves, the four un
wounded men saving as many as they could
by means of the dingy, and also jumping
overboard; fifty-three, all told, were saved.
Capt. Woodward was informed by Mr.
Hoimwood, Consul General, that of the
thirteen Arabs on board the dhow nine
were the most notorious slave dealers in
Pemba, and in all there were upward of
twenty armed men, the arms being Snider
rifles and swords. Of the thirteen Arabs
eleven were killed and two succeeded in
reaching the shore, one of whom died sub
sequently of his wounds, and the other es
caped, but measures have been adopted for
his capture. During tho action four of the
boat’s crew were severely wounded, one of
whom has since died. The following are the
names of the crew: Frederick J. Russell,
captain, mizzontop (wounded): Joseph E.
Greep, leading seaman; Henry Ward, A. B.;
Benjamin E. Stone, A. B. (dead); Thomas
Hall, A. B. (wounded); Frederick Blanch
ard, A. B.; John W. Pearson, A. B.; James
J. Blyth, private R. M. (wounded). On the

HANGED, BUT NOT DEAD.
Remarkable Escape of Bill Langley
From the Gallows.
A Fort Worth (Tex.) special says; Catnp
liell Langley, tho father of the once noto
rious and not yet forgotten Bill Langley,
removed to Bell county, Tex., from near
Lexington, Lee county, Tex., twelve years
ago. During his residence in Lee and Bell
counties he has been known as a well-to-do
farmer, and an upright citizen. Campbell
Langley to-day tells a story to some of the
leading citizens of Bell county, which, but
for his well known Christian character,
would be put down as the wildest fiction.
Ho says that his son, Bill Langley, who
was publicly hanged twelve yeurs ago, in
Biddings, Liee county,by Sheriff Jim Brown,
in the presence of several thousand people,
was not hurt at all, but was allowed to es
cape. The father says when the (Supreme
Court and Governor refused to intervene In
Bill’s behalf, a rich uncle in California came
to the rescue with $4,000, with which he so
worked uponghe sympathy of tho Sheriff
charged with the execution of the sentence
that the friends of Bill were permitted to ar
range things so that when the drop fell the
weight of the body fell upon an iron hoop,
supported by an appropriate body harness in
such a manner that he escaped physically
unhurt. W T hen he had drawn his legs up
and down two or three times, the attending
physician pronounced him dead, and ho was
turned over to his friends for interment.
The coffin, which was actually buried, con
tained nothing but stones. While the last
sad rites were being pronounced, li.li Lang
ley was well on his way out of tho country.
He has tieen living since his sup]iosed execu
tion in Niearaugua, where he is a leading
citizen, and one of the largest owners and
cattle herders in Central America.
Those who know Campbell Langley do not
hesitate to lielieve his story, which he now
makes public only because Sheriff B: n,
who officiated at the supposed ext uti a,
died in Lee county last week.
A Chinese Complexion,

indicative of bile iu the blood. XVbo would be
yellow when he or she can exhibit the hue of
health on cheek and brow through the aid of
Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters, an antagonist at
whose onset liver complaint takes refuge in
flight* Fur upon the tongue,|nniißea, sick head
ache, pains under the right ribs and shoulder
blades, an unpleasantly odorous breath, are
remediable with this ben!git alterative, which
does not, like a potent cathartic, drench the in

contaminate the blood. Not only the liver, but
the stomach and towels are aroused, toned and
regulated by this fine family medicine, which
has won the confidence or the respectable
classes, not by startling assertions ou its tohalf,
but by the consistency of the claims made for
it with its performance in every instance when
