A Complete Victory Over Barrios and His Followers at Chalchuapa. FORT WAYNE. IND.. SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 5, 1885. The Russians Bager for a Speedy Settlement of the Frontier Difficulty. The Ameer of Afghanistan to be a Gaeat of the British Crown. General Wolseley's Medical Re- Effects of the Heat. FOREIGN. BRITAIN. By Bennett-Mackajr Gable to the GAZEMK. LONDON, which are received from Earl Dufferln, the Brit- ish viceroy of India, indicate that the negotations in progress at Rawal Pindee are satisfactory to the Indians and apparently, to the British, but they also indicate that the negotiations tend towards a joint military alliance be- tween England and the ameer, that their Very success may be accepted by Russia as a menace. The Earl of Diif- ferin, for instance, to-day reports that the ameer has obtained from India a special subsidy for the maintainance of an Afghan garrison at Herat, of suffici- ent strength to insure the integrity of that entire district. In addition to this it has been decided to give Abdurrah- man the service of an English officer to superintend the work of constructing a series of fortresses which have been decided en a line of defense along the northern course, it is stipulated that those fortresses are to be garrisoned and defended by Afghans exclusively, but Russia may find cause for irrita- tion in scientific and professional mili- tary aid openly and officially given by England. AgiiuLord Dufferirx reports that, on the part of Great Britain, it has been agreed that tho English shall construct a railway from Bolan to Candahar and a military road from Candahar to Herat and in addition to all this, link and line the fortresses be- tween Herat and Candahar to- Russia, whatever her vlttaute object may be, is trying to gain time. General Wolesley has forwarded to the war office a significant report made out by the medical staff attached to the Khartoum expedition. The sub- ject of the report is the results of ex- posure to the desert heat to the British troops stationed along the borders of SoHdan. The report states that if the present British military station in Son- ant be uaiintaiaed, fully half of the reops will die, disabled by heat, before the arrival of autum. The whele tone of this peculiar report, which was undoubtedly directly in- spired by General Wolseley himself, 'indicates, that the decision having been reached to that effect, the public is being prepared to witness an early withdrawal of the whole British foice from Soudan to Egypt and complete an abandonment of the Nile-Khartoum expedition.

WASHINGTON, April Post to- morrow prints an interview with Senor Abartres, the Guatemalan minister, who says he does not believe tho re- ports of the death of Barrios and of the victories of the Salvadorian troops. He said there was but one cable to Central America and that is in the bauds of the enemies of Barrios and his cause and they were manipulating the wire to suit their own interests. He said farther that Barrios has about mon with him and could easily get as many more, as the people of the Central American states are in hearty accord with his efforts to secure a union. GRANT'S CHARACTERISTICS. gether by a telegraph system. The cabinet at council to-day ap- proved of tho agreement made between tho araeer of Afghanistan and tho earl of Dufforiii. Abdurrahman's express- ions af a desire to visit England, hav- ing been reported by Lord Dufferin to the home government, the viceroy has been instructed to invite the amoer to come to London as a guost of the crown. The cabinet al its session this afternoon had under consideration the acceptance of England's proposals con- cerning tho Afghan boundary lino as sent to Earl Granyillo, the British for- eign minister, by Priina Minister de Giers, for Russia. Tho Russian re- sponse cannot bo deemed a complete acceptance OT anything more than a provisional acceptance. M. do Giers in answer to Earl Granville's proposal that Russia agree to confine the dispute between the two powers to a zone, in- cluding all tho debatable points, and to be called the Zone of Survey, as de- limited by England in the proposal, agrees to do so, provided tho zone southwards to tho foot of Parapamisan range of mountains. This request on the part of Russia, literally translated, means that Russia will consent to limit the discussion to a zone contain- ing all the points admitted by Eng- land as debatable, provided this ssono is so extended as to include all the ter- ritory which Russia desires to make debatable. The British government has also re- ceived reliable information to the effect that there has bean recently an im- mense increase in the number of Rus- sian troops in Turkestan. Those latter estimated with the troops already stationed in line between Baku and Sarakhs, aggregate at least The nature of tho response from M, de Qiers to the English proposals makes it necessary to prolong the period of the correspondence between the two powers on Afghan ques- tion, as the joint commissioners ap- pointed by England and Russia to meet and adjnst tho Afghan boundary within tho lines agreed upon by tha disputants cannot moot or begin their work' until tho .ssono of debate limited by the principals it follows that pended, and an armistice of one month's duration in announced.

There is no way of ascertaining when or how this familiar process of bulter- Vking was first used. Butter is men- foiled in the Old Testament, but mod- ern Biblical scholars think that the word thus translated denoted a liquid preparation of cream. The oldest ref- vence to true butter is probably that node by Herodotus, in account jf the Scythians. In tho writings of Dioscoridoa, a native of Cilioia, Asia Minor, whp lived in the first century, we have a description of the process of making butter from sheep's milk by Frequent mention is made in those old writin'gs of tho use of but- ter as an ointment whence we may conclude that the process of making it was not so well understood as to give very palatable article. The Greeks obtained their knowledge of butter- making frotn Asia Minor, and the Ro- mans learned it through the Greeks.

WASHINGTON, April Star publishes au interview with Jas. J. Creswell, in General Grant's cabinet as postmaster-general for over five years. He says, "I never heard him say a harsh or petty thing; never heard him speak impulsively or use a profane word. His relations with his family were delightful and charming. There was never a kinder or more indulgent father, and I never saw a more devoted couple than General and Mrs. Grant. Of course, everybody knows he loved mnntltvv them the other day was very touching, and the emotion shown by the old warrior, exhibited the depth of his affection. General Grant's great characteristic, however, was his sublime and unllinching cour- age. It was of that kind that no im- pression could be made upon it by op- position. He discharged his duties al- ways without selfishness, never stop- ping to consider how an action would affect him personally. I asked Grant once when giving orders for an engage- ment if he was not appalled by the great loss of life which would ensue. Ho said, 'no it was war, but I realized what it meant, I never gave such or- ders until I was satisfied that it was the best course to pursue aud then I was willing to shoulder the responsi- bility.' He added that many mon failed as commanders siipply because of their unwillingness to assume the responsibility. He spoke of two men who were fearless in this respect, Sherman and Sheridan. The latter in particular, he thought was possessed with ample courage to do what seemed best and be responsi- ble for the outcome. It was not rash- ness and heedlessnesa, but fearlessness in assuming the responsibility for the results.'1 Cresswell spoko enthusiastically of General Grant as a writer and talkor. "Now about Grant's third term continued Cresswell, "Ho didn t desire to have a third term for the glory there was in it, but there was a live policy ho desired to carry out." _________________ A DETERMINED FEMALE.
