Coatas Thread Manufacturing Company in Boot-land and the United States into a general stock association, witb a capital of $27,-983,333.34. The New York Herald is surprised because neither Senator Evarts nor Senator Hiscock protested againBt tbe passage of tbe Plumb resolution for tbe transfer of the remains of General Grant to Washington. The truth probably is that neither of the New York Senators could in de-conoy say anything against it. The Herald should remember that not one of the eighty-six members of the Senate raised his voice against the resolution. The ceremonies at Gettysburg on "Pennsylvania Reserve Day," Tuesday, the 3d of September, will be of unusual interest to Pennsylvania.

Boston, Aug. 13.-President Williams, of tbe Union ex-prisoners, in his annual report refers to the failure of Congress to pais their pension bill. Ho saya the bill does not appear to have as much interest for Speaker Reed as some others. Uo seems to have a bigger fish to fry. Senator Hawley, he says has shown himself to be a very impecunious statesman in his speeches condemning the measure. A test vote was reaehed this morning upon the question as to the abolition ot tbe so-called ''House of Lords" in tbe Grand Army of the Republic, and the voting upon a motion to assign the question for debate at 2 p. m. to-day.

Offers will also be received Friday next. TIM Latest Fashionable Fad. A Washington correspondent tells how he discovered tbe latest fashionable fad, as follows: I have made a discovery. It may not be as important as some of those made by Stanley in Africa; but you oan judge for yourself. Last night I attended an entertainment at a friend's residence. It was not long before my ears wore greeted with a faint, far-away tinkle, tinkle not unlike the merry music of sliver sleigh bells a long ways off. I could not for the life of me tell what they were. Finally I located the sound as coming from a merry group of yonng people, but the most careful scrutiny, made, of oonrse, on the sly, failed to show which one the jingle oamc from. Becoming desperate I asked one of the young ladles in tbe aforesaid group if she heard the tinkle of tho bolls. She blushed deeply and in some confusion requested me to get her an Ice. Later I went to my huatefib' wife and asked her for information about the tinkling bells, which I was beginning to think were tho creation of a disordered brain. "If you can keep a secret, remain here a few minutes," Bho said as she left tho room. "Is this like what you heard," she said as she returned with one hand held bo-bind. "Yes," what Is it? I answered eagerly. "Hush, bush, not so loud,-it is Julia's garter," and handing mo a dainty circle of yellow satin with an oxydized silver clasp along the bottom of which were Bix of tho tinieBt, cutest little silver bells imaginable She Bat down and laughed at my discomfiture. She then condescended to inform me that it was the very latest fad sent over from the homo of fads-Paris. THE BEST TIME YET. The White Star Steamer CroMCft tltv t>4>rim in Five l�ay�.

Rye is really a fall and spring crop, as it comes in for pasturing late in tho season, and is ready for stock early in the spring before any other green food is ready. As rye is expected t} prodnce not only pasturage bnt also grain and straw, it taxes the land in proportion to the uses to whioh it has been applied, and ta se-oure the best results the land should be prepared in August, not only by a liberal application of manure, plowing, and working down fine witb a barrow, but the land should again be worked over in September, before seeding, as a fine seedbed is essential. Rye flourishes on nearly all kinds of soils, and will thrive on light Bandy lands that are unfit for wheat or oats. It is a hardy plant, and endures treatment that would be fatal to some other cereals. Though not valued so highly as wheat, yet it is more serviceable for farm purposes, and its adaptability to nearly all sections renders it one of the surest and best crops for those who do not secure straw or green food from other sources. TF1E PASTURING WITH RYE. Rye is not considered as valuable as grass for pasturing, but its value consists in the amount of green and succulent food it provides late in the season. When nearly all other vegetation is drying up, and dropping the leaves, rye is just in the proper condition to take its placo for pasturage, and provides green food until well into the winter. The rioher the soil the greater the amount of green food it provides and the earlier it will stirt off again in the .spring, and, of course, tbe rye oan be grazed by stock with less injury on fertile soil. The importance of such a crop as rye for late pasturing is not so mneh in the nutrition afforded by tbe rye itself, for in the early stages of its growth it is composed largely of water, bnt it serves a purpose of assisting digestion when the animals are put on dry food. If but a few bou:s each day are allowed to the cows on rye, quite an advantage will be secured in tbe keeping of the animals in full flow of milk. RYE AS AS EARLY BPRING CHOP. As rye grows early in tho spring, it provides green food before grass is ready, and gives tbe first reliof from the winter's monotony of dry provender, and as it grows up as fast as the animals graze it down, a small patoh affords an abundant supply if it is not trampled too much. As a grain crop it also yields well when tho land is liberally manured, and the straw is more valuable than that of wheat, being always in demand in tho market for bedding purposes. In fact, in some sections rye is grown as much for straw as for its grain, but its real value is a green orop. Another advantage of sowing rye is that the preparation of the land intended for it, if done this month, assists in the destruotion of many weeds, and for that reason the work of preparing for rye should not be delayed. Gum Chewing for MoRe Blt-ed. From the Albany Express.

THE BIG RAILROAD STRIKE The Central Officials Say it is Over and the Knights Acknowledge Defeat TKAINS EUfiNING ON TIME AGAIN An Unconditional Surrender all Along the Line on the Part of tho Striken-Those Who Deraerted Thrlr Poets WllMog to Report Again for Uuty-What General Superintendent voorheet Has to Say. New York, Aug. 13.-The strike is over. The following was given for publication by the General Superintendent Voorhees this evening: Tbe superintendent said tbat he had received a report in tbe afternoon tbat indicated unconditional surrender on tbe part of tho Knights of Labor on the Harlem division. He received a message last evening informing him that the committee bad just waited on tbe superintendent and informed him that local assembly No. 1,705, located at Dover Plains, had surrendered their charter. This was confirmed by a message addressed to E. J. Lee, and signed F. L. Fenner. The strikers made no conditions. They say they are ready for any disposition tbat the company may see fit to make of them. They are ready to go to work at once. Voorhees replied to Worcester direoting hup to take on at once four old conductors and twelve brakemen, tbe balance of the men t) report at tbe Grand Central depot. Their cases will be held under advisement. sergeant off for cleveland. Terre Haute, Aug. 13.-Grand Master Sergeant of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, left at noon for Cleveland to meet with the Grievance Committee, but whether or not in connection with the Central strike is not known. At the national headquarters here a positive statement was made that he had not ordered the firemen to strike. the situation at albany. Albany, Aug. 13.-The condition of tbe Central Hudson strike in this section is unchanged. Superintendent Bissel said to-night that passenger trains were run to-day according to the schedule for the first timo since the strike was on. Tbe freight blockade was raised to-day. Two freight trains crossed the bridge, and will be sent to Buffalo tonight. Xwenty-one oars of dressed beef and twenty-five oars of coal were forwarded to New York. The Pinkertons on the first train from East Albany were stoned and three of them received severe bruises. This evening the Pinkertons undertook to elear the bridge spanning the freight traoks in tbe West Albany yards. One of the spectators was injured by a club in the bands of tbe Pinkertons, and one of tbe latter was hurt and was carried off the field. The Pinkertons had no authority to disturb the spectators on tbe bridge. The Btrikers speak as determined aa ever and say they do not fear tbe result. A committee of Delaware and Hudson strikers is in consultation with Superintendent Hammond. Tbe Pinkertons arrested a striker in tbe Green Island yards to-night, but tho crowd surrounded them and released the man. out. This verification Mr. Porter believes can be completed iu ten days, so that tbe final result will probably be announced before the end of the present montb, and Congress if it so desires, can proceed to pass an apportionment bill and determine how many members shall constitute the next House. � ��. - FREIGHT TRAINS MOVING. The Strike on the New York Central Believed to be Ended. New York, Aug. 13.-Tbe strike, situation to-day remains practically unchanged excepting that the officials claim that it is improved. Tbeysay that freight trains are coming in and going out on time. They also say that the running of passenger trains has resumed its normal condition. The suburban traffic stilf suffers, but as tbe New York Central is, notorious for poor accommodations furnished tbe unfortunates who live along its line it is not surprising that these trains should\m the last resumed. Mr. Webb says he has received numerous applications from, old hands, but wilt not under any oir'anm-stanoes reinstate them. He also says that he has received applications from men on other roadB snffioient in number to' man tbe whole Central system'.' These men are already employed, but' they would consider a change to the Central an Improvement. At the Sixty-fifth' ^street yards men are at work preparing to"send out more freight trains to-day. '''_'[' The usual number sent ont from these yards at this time of year Is from eight to ten daily. Yesterday Ave were, sent out, and it is expected that the number will be increased to-day. Freight' trains are be-ng moved from St. John's Park, in ThirJ teentb street. The police' are \ still on guard at the Grand Central depot,' bat to an ordinary observer there is nothing to indieate that there has been a strike. A Singular Accident.
