Late Sunday night ho conceived tho idea of playing what he considered a joke on his fellow-workmen about the brick yards.

So ho got a large blanket and spread it over his face, while he stalked about the yard in ghoulish glee. He was having lots of fun at the expense of the others, when ono of the men shouted, "Halt!" But he did not halt, and "bang" went a 32-calibre rovolver, and tho "ghost" fell back wounded in the jaw. Hipkins then took off his blanket, and was removed to the hospital. It was found upon examination that the ball struck Hipkins in the mouth, lodging...

raw ? ALEXANDRIA. WEDNESDAY EVEN I NO, AUGUST 10. Notwithstanding the ro-endorgcincnt of the Riddleberger bill by tho Stute demo cratis convention, some of the democratic newspapers of tho State continue to suggest acd discuss various schomes for tho settle? ment of tho Stuto debt by other means. That they do so is patent evideuco that they, like many of the delegates to tho con? vention who gave their passive consent to its action, do not believe that the Kiddle herger bill will ever settle Iho debt.

WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 10. Scokpions of Socthesx Mexico.?Mexicans are complaining about tho increase of scorpions of late in the southern part of Mexico. They arc so numorous that nearly every houso is overrun with them. They arc within the cracks of tho walls, and dart everywhere with inconceivablo rapidity; their tails, which hold tho sting, are held ready to fly np, with dangerous effect, upon the slightest provocation. The average scorpion is mahogany bued, and about two inches long ; but they have been fonnd five inches in length. The small, yellowish variety are considered more dangerous, and their bite is most apprehended at midday. In Durango they are black and so alarmingly nu? morous?having boen allowed to breed for centu? ries in the deserted mines?that the government offers a reward per head (or rather per tail) to whoever will kill them.

THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 11. An Egyptian Home in the Time of Mosss.?A high wall separated the building with its court from the street. An ante? chamber for the doorkeeper formed the en? trance to the house proper, while a commo? dious and handsome dining room was the chief apartment. On the right side of a small court, behind thediningroom, were the bed chambers of the owner, and on the left side were the storeroom and servants' quar? ters. Further away were the women's apartment and the Mower garden. The love of t! o wers was an important characteristic of Egyptian life. For a people that adorned their dwellings with flowers must have made more of tbe home life than was usual in the East. The family life, indeed, was at a high standard. The wife, who, in the in? scriptions on the tombs, is praised as the "palm of love before her husband," was looked on as worthy to be the companion of roan, and was highly honored. Monogamy was the rule. The possession of a harem was generally confi...
