Qdat has received the nomination for the State Legislature by the Republicans of lieaver county, and will represent his father In that body dur iog the coming' winter. Tknnis, like erioket, is peculiarly an English sport, and it is therefore both surprise and a congratulatory episode to have . an American carry on! the tennis championship of the world in a match with EagJaad'M champion. Tbe embargo laid an American pork by the French Government, has stirred up wide discontent among the French working people, with whom it has become a principal article of food. This is the only type of American hog that we would like to sue popular the world over. Oxk of the advantages of recent Isrge railroad movements is the announcement that the Atahison road will shorten its time from St. Louis to S�n Franoisco by eighteen hours. Its competitors will undoubtedly meat this time reduction, and presently San Franoisco will be a d�y nearer to us than at present. The English hare a law to prevent the adulteration of drugs and groceries. A similar bill has been introduced in Congress and ought speedily to become a law. The bill proposal to establish a food division in the Department of Agriculture, i:>r the analysia of food and drugs, and the conviction of those who adulterate either. Upon conviction the name of the food or drug adulterated, with the name at the individual or corporation gnilty, ia to be published. The New York Board of Health vaccinates annually about 30,000 children, and all the adults who apply. The result is that between 80,000 and 90,000 persons are vaccinated every year in that city. The deaths from this aause prior to 1S7G averaged 59J in every 100,000of the population. Since 1S76 it has averaged less than 0 per cent, of 100,000. During the past 16 months there have been only two cases. The disease has been killed by vaccination. Always excepting the spider shanked concern which Eiffel poked up into the sky 1,000 feet above Paris, the Bpire of the cathedral at TJlm. which was finished on Saturday evening at six o'clock with great bell ringings, is the highest in the world, being 530 feet high or S feet higher than thB cathedra, tower of Cologne. Its supremacy will last till Philadelphia's City Hall is completed to its proposed height of 537 feet 4 inches. And then, since human nature is still something like what it was in the days of Babel, somebody somewhere will build something 540 feet high. Mora Bluahei. Erie Dispatch.

Sandera waa engaged to be mar ried to* Mies Emma Zenor, a handsome young lady of Evanaville, who is now visiting in this city. Upon ooming to see the young lady, Sanders discovered that Overby had supplanted him in her affections. A quarrel was followed by a fight, in which Sanders waa worsted.

Overby was represented by Frank Lat-Cra.ll, a young man who lives in Indian, apolia, while a traveling man from Cin oinnati named Harry Thomas acted as second for Sanders. Aocompanled by a medioal atudent named James White, who acted as surgeon, and a reporter of the Courier-Journal, the party secured carriages and drove', to St. Louis CemetBry in the suburbs. The principals took their poeitions armed with 32 calibre Smith ai-d Wesson revolvers, 20 paces apart. It waa too dark to see thB men plainly, except at a close distance, but they both displayed great coolness. The seconds took their respective positions after arranging that the firing should begin when three had been counted. "One, two, three." As the last number was called by the physician, who did the counting, a blaze of fire flashed from the muzzles or both pistols. Before one could see whether or not either man was wounded four more reports rang out and Sanders staggered up to a tombstone near him and supported himself by its cold sides. Or. White hastily examined him and found that one bullet had penetrated his right breast near the top of the shoulder, while another had made a slight flesh wound in his left arm. He had fired two shots, while Oveiby had fired three. The man'a wounds were dressed as quickly as possible, and he was placed in his carriage and taken to New Albany, Ind., where he took the first train for home in Evanaville. The other participants of the affair all left the oity. Sanders woundB are not considered fatal. TFOBK Or OOHGBBSS. Spe-ilal Announcement.

A Washington letter to the Chicago Timet says of Secretary Rusk's method of handling the Government seed business: All the seeds now being distributed are exceedingly fine, and the department represents a certain potato that it is send ing oat as probably the most excellent article in the Bhape of a Hibernian tuber ever obtained by cultivation. It never offered potatoes before this seasou, by tbe way. The germs of this wonderful vegetable will be sent to you, if you make the request-twenty-five "eyes" in a wooden box-all out up and ready to plant. Of course, the notion ia that the farmer, observing that the potatoes grown from these twenty-five eyes are superior to any otbera of his crop, will keep them for specimens of the vegetable for planting, the product of all that particular district being in this way improved. Such,indeed, is the whole idea and purpose of the seed distribution-that tbe vegetables and flowers grown in this country shall be as good and pretty ot their kinds as possible. The seeds bought of the farmers by tbe agent are sent to Washington in bags, and in this shape are piled in the storage department of Uncle Sam's barn, which is a big brick building juat back of tbe main structure of the Department of Agriculture. An enormous room adjoining is filled with pretty women sitting at little tables and measuring out seeds from saoks into brown paper envelopes. Some of them quart-pots, others pints, and so on down to mere thimbles with long handles for such little seeds as carrots. Obviously, too, the envelopes differ in size. Each envelope, having received its measnreful, is sealed up and a label is psBted on It, telling what BBBds it contains, giving directions for planting them, and saying at the bottom: "Please report results." It is desired to know, you see, how the seeds turn out. Finally the paakets arc put np in bundles of fives and tens, and after being addressed they are sent off in this Bhape. If you ask simply for "some vegetable and flower seeds" you will probably receive ten envelopes of the former and five of the latter. A sample bundle of ten vegetables would very likely contain a quart of corn, half a pint of beans, half a pint of peas, and some small envelopes of cabbage, pumpkin, tomato, pepper, radish, anaumber and beet. Quarts are also given of buckwheat and lawn-grass. A separate room in the barn is devoted to the putting up of flower seeds, whioh are purchased from tbe big seed houses.
