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 phia. “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. MAGAZINES. 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 York city. 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. THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 1887. FLORIDA COCOANUTS A Splendid Grove of 300,000 Trees in Dade County. 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 world. 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 success. 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* of Labor. 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 one. ‘ “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 died. “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 the table. “ ‘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 ing.” 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 regularly. 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 the Georgia cracker versus the Yankee sharper. _____ Too well known to need lengthy adver tisements—Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Retiiodv. I 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 receipt of Capt. Woodward’s dispatch it was laid before the Lords of the Admiralty, who, to mark their appreciation of the gal lantry displayed, have promoted Lieut. Fe gen to Commander, and Russell and Greep to warrant officers. The other seamen are to be advanced to petty officers’ ratings, if they possess the necessary qualifications, anu the marine to corporal. 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.
