The Author of“Darling Nellie Gray.”
There u & little green mound and
humble marble slab in a secluded
corner of Ottcrbein cemetery,, about
twelve miles north of the city, which
marks the grave of the author of that
famous ballad, “Darling Nellie
Gray.” A visitor to the spot learns
from the inscription on the stone that
it is the last resting place of Benjamin
Russell Hanby. The seclusion
of the tomb, the neglect
shown it by all save a few relatives
and the general ignorance of its loca
tion, form another illustration of the
forgetfulness of the human race. Not
withstanding the grave of the author
of “Darling Nellie Gray” is forgotten
and neglected, his own beautiful bal
lad has sculptured out for him a
monument of memory which will en
dure the changes of centuries to
The New Dance.
“The latest thing in dances is ‘the
dervish,’ and it beats the racquet all
“It gets its name fom a fancied re
semblance to the whirl of the dervish
es ot the African desert tribes,” said
Prof. Fredericks, the dancing master,
yesterday. “Special music is written
for it, and it is as tuneful as the old
racquet, popular even to-day. The
dance begins as an ordinary waltz, the
opening movements being rather slow
and stately, for the time is increased,
and the dance ends with a dozen very
rapid waltz, evolutions that are said
to make the dancers dizzy and impress
the lookers-on that it is wicked to take
part therein. The only tiling neces
sary to carry out the dervish idea is
the howl that should accompany the
whirl, but the dancers are too well
bred and the dance sufTcrs.”—Detroit
The Vermont Microscopical Asscci-
ation has just announced that a prize
of 8250, given by the Wells, Richard
son Co., the well-known chemists, will
be paid to the discoverer of a new
disease germ. The wonderful discov
ery by Prof. Koch of the cholera
germ, as the.cause of cholera, stimu
lated great research throughout the
world, and it is believed that this lib
crnl prize, offered by a house of such
standing, will greatly assist in the
detection of micro-organisms that are
. the direct cause of disease and death.
All who are interested in the subject
and the conditions of this prize, should

In the course of an article on Jef
ferson Davis, in the Chicago Inter-
Ocean, over the signature ot “By
stander,” Judge Albion W. Tourgee
writes: “Yet with all this, some
things must in fairness be said for the
aged chief of the confederacy. He
has been consistent and resolute in
the maintenance of his views of gov
ernment. Some years ago the By
stander took the pains to collect and
collate all the votes and speeches of
Mr. Davis ns member of both houses
of the national congress. It was a
useless labor except from the fact that
lie desired to fill out and complete l»is
own mental picture of one of the
most notable men of his time—a man
who has occupied an anomalous posi
tion in the world’s history. As a re
sult he docs not hesitate to say that
one making such a study and at the
same time reviving in bis memory the
sentiments of that time when the
tempest brooded over our land, can
not nclp a feeling of respect for the
evident sincerity and ability of the
man who was-afterward to stand on so
strange a pinnacle. From his be
lief in the constitutionality of seces
sion, the righteousness of slavery, and
the justice of |thc confederate cause,
he has never for au instant wavered,
from his earliest speech in the 'house
of representatives to his latest
letter. in which he confidently
appeals to Ihc future for ?. vindicatoin
of his views and conduct. What he
then believed he still believes. One
cannot question his sincerity.”
The following true but rather sur
prising statement is taken from the
Sanitariau: “Last year Florida was
panic stricken from the havoc of ycl-
iow fever; bill during the same year
consumption destroyed more than
twice as many lives hi the little slate
of New Hampshire, and not a tremor
ran through the body corporate The
average annual dcatli rate in this
country from cholera, ye low fever,
smallpox, typhoid fever, diphtheria,
and scarlet lever, all combined, does
not reach the enormous total of deaths

ASLEEP ON THE TRACK.
A little child, tired of play, had pillowed hi0

The train was almost upon him when a passing
