New York, Aug. 12.-Brad street's says to-day: Special tlek grams to Bradstreet's, and infoi mation received through the trad and the press within a few days have indicated the likelihood of crisis in the cotton regions, owiin to the inability of banking insti tutions there to advance funds na cessary to move the cotton cro] with anything like the usual free dom. It had become plain the few, if any, of the Southern bank Would, if they could, advanc funds to cotton buyers to enable the latter to hold the staple fo an advance in price, and recen disturbances among Southern fin ancial institutions began to rais the question how the cotton cro] was to be moved at all. Inasmuch as it costs $8 50 a ball for picking, ginning, pressing ant baling, about $50,000,000 for ga thering and preparing for ship ment a crop of 6,000,000 bales, i becomes plain that the phrase "advancing funds to move the cot ton crop" has a real and livin, meaning....

To Be Buried Alive. A Hillsboro, Ill., special says: The mind reader, A. J. Seymour, is generally known in Illinois and his proposed attempt to be buried and remain in the ground while a crop of barley is grown on his grave creates great interest in this state. Dr. E. C. l)unn, of Rock ford, has been selected by Sty mour as manager of the "funeral ceremonies," and a son of Prof. Saymour will assist. Both these gentlemen express confidence in Saymour's ability to suspend life for six weeks buried in a coffin six feet under ground. Dr. Dunn says: "There is no question that this feat can be performed. I have seen it performed successfully three times in India at Allahahan, Delhi and Benares." There will be considerable pre paration before the body will be buried. For several days Sey mour will be fed upon a diet of fat and heat-producing food to provide an excess of caloric. He will then throw himself into a cataleptic state, controling the ac tion of the lungs and the heart. The lungs...

Outlook For Resumption. The present financial orisis, said Senator Hill in his recent speech. may he attributed to three causes: First, the regular recurring col lapse .after a long period of real or fictitious prosperity, proving the ;general rule that such panics take place about every twenty years; second, the concerted efforts on the part of the monometallists to produce it, in order to discredit silver; third, the effects of the' Sherman silver purchasing law. 'The first alleged cause impties mere panic, which neither caution zor conservatism could have aver ted; the second is a grave charge, and if tree the instigators have suffered for their fault, for wealth, has fel the shook ,greatly; the third cause is aniversally couce 'ded, but not so learly demonstra ted as to remove doubt in all nminds.
