A Trarrler Planges Partly Through the Window of a RushiniT Sleeper, Narrowly Escaping I>eath. Pittsburgh, Feb. 16.—The limited express on the Panhandle road was dashing along its course at a very high rate of speed at two o’clock this morning when the porter on the St. Louis sleeping-car was suddenly startled by the crash of glass. He hurried forward to the first soo-tion, from whence the noise seemed to have come, and which was occupied by a young man en route to Washington, D. C. The porter hastily pulled aside the curtains, when he was horrified by the sight that met his gaze. The glass of a large double window had been broken and the pieces were scattered around the section. A man’s head, arms and shoulders had disappeared through the broken window, while his legs and feet still remained Avithin the car. The speed of the train was so great that the cars swayed from side to side, and each moment there was danger of the man slipping through the window and being hurled to the ground. Instantly the porter realized the danger of the young man, and, grabbing him by the feet, finally succeeded in getting him back into the berth. By this time the conductor, who had been calltd by the porter; and several of the passengers had hurried to the berth to learn what had caused the excitement. ITie young man seemed dazed at first, as though ho w’ere but partially awake, but gradually he realized his situation and shuddered as he learned Avhat a narrow escape from déath he had. He arose and dressed himself. He then walked back to the rear of the car and told the x>orter that he would never forget AA’hat had been done for him. as his life had been saved by his timely arrival. He said that his name was C. F. ■^King, and that was en route to Washington, D. C. He w’as returning from an ex-tendetl trip in the West, w*here he had gone for his health. Yesterday afternoon he had eaten unusually heartily while traveling in the buffet ear. After he had retired to his berth for the night he fell into a restless sleep and finally had an attack of the nightmare. He dreamed that the sleeping-car was on fire. The rumbling noise of the moving train gave him the impression that the pas.scngcrs were hur.ying to and fro trying to escape from the car. While still asleep it is supposed that he made a dash toAvard the w'indoAv and tried to plunge through head first. A PERAMBULATINQ SALOON. Startling and Nov«%l Discovery by Atlanta Pollrcmnn.

Toronto, Ont., Feb. 17.—The charges against the Reform party of Canada of je-ceiving thousands of dollárs from Americans to buy up the country and defeat Sir John Macdonald’s Government is repeated here by the ¿Haridard, Sir John’s organ.
