Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 17, 1890, Burlington, Iowa ESTABLISHED: JONE, 1839.) BURLINGTON, IOWA, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 17, 1890. (PRICE : 15 CENTS PER WEEK. ALLISON SPEAKS ON SILVER. He Addresses the Senate House Measure. on the What Mr. Daniel Had to Say on the Subject —Mr. Vest Also Speaks—The Vote Postponed—The House—General Washington News. congressman, one hundred an of the every way Mr. Chandler is nearly years of age, a veter-war of 1812, and worthy, but his just claims upon the government received no recognition until Governor Gear espoused his cause with his usual determination of character, the representation of the first district pushed the bill through the house committee on pensions, secured its passage in the house, and followed it to the senate, where it speedily passed. It was a labor ipse voluptas, and therefore the more deserving of special mention and commendation. S. D. F. Washington, June 16.—After some preliminary business the house silver bill was taken up. Mr, Daniel resumed the speech begun by him Friday. Iii concluding his speech Daniels said that the world moved, and that this was a land of progress had never been better demonstrated than by the fact that the great leader of the republican financial policy in the United States (tlluding to Sherman) who had carried the single gold standard over two continents, had come forward in his speech and laid down at the feet of the double standard and proclaimed he was, at last, an advocate of silver money. Mr. Allison next addressed the senate. Ile said he should vote for the house bill, as amended by the senate finance committee as he considered it the wisest and best solution of the question. The question to be considered was what currency should bi; safely substituted for national bank circulation. The judgment of the finance committee was (and he thought it would be the judgment of the senate) that if the government issues paper it should issue it on something that was in and of itself convertible into legal tender money. Therefore til**bill proceeded on the idea that whatever paper money should be issued should be issued on silver bullion purchased by the government at the market price. Why, he asked, had silver bullion been selected as a basis for that new paper money? It was because the public mind rested in the belief that sooner or later silver bullion would be coined and become part of the metallic currency. It was on that basis that he would vote for the bill. It was on that basis he was willing that flu* coinage of silver dollars as now provided for should cease. There were people who believed the coined dollars in the treasury were useless and that it would bi; wise public policy to cease that coinage. He, for one, did not share that belief, he believed that it was just as well lo continuo them to the utmost limit of four millions a month. But there was a large public opinion against that view and, therefore, he consented that buliion should be left in the treasury uncoined. He did that more readily for the reason he believed, sooner or later, the United States would have to change the number oi grains of silver in a dollar and t herefore the dollar now coined would be recoined. He was, therefore, willing that bullion should lie in the treasury until it was known whether there, would be an international agreement as to the ratio. It was true the ponding bill provided that bullion in the treasury should be coined for the redemption of treasury notes. Whatever might be the opinion of the other senators in that respect lie did not labor under the delusion that in the hear future under the provisions of the house bill or the senate any additional silver dollars would be issued. There were now more than three hundred million coined dollars in the treasury against which silver certificates were issued, so, although these dollars belonged to the holders of these certificates, the certificates were payable for public dues and when they were received into the public treasury they belonged to the government of the United States, so the government would always have a working balance sufficient to redeem those notes. Ho believes the only safe way to rehabilitate silver was to secure concurrent agreement among nations whereby they would open their mints concurrently to the free coinage of silver at an agreed rate, so believing he was willing to go on as they were going on now with a provision for the use of silver, pending the negotiations that ought to be had for the restoration of silver on some agreed rate by the world. In supporting the Iii 11 he supported it on the basis that of the idea that the government of the United States would use its power in endeavoring to secure an agreement whereby all commercial nations of the world would us*' silver as gold was now used, at a ratin to la' agreed upon. Ile regarded tin'    pending measure, and the unanimity with which it was supported as a complete justification of tin' legislation of 1878 which contemplated    the minimum monthly coinage of two million silver dollars and a maximum of four millions. He was for a full aud    complete restoration of silver as one of the coin metals of the world, and was willing to do whatever he could to promote that most desirable object. He could not vote for free coinage at this time or any time in the near future. He could not do so until every effort to secure the use of silver by the commercial nations of the world was exhausted. Mr. Vest commented upon the remark of Allison as to “a new born zeal” of the democratic senators in tile cause of free coinage of silver, and made a statement to show that it had always been a democratic policy.    lf the democratic party said nothing on the silver question in the platform of 1888 it was not because it had receded from the position it always held. Ii was because President Cleveland was an eastern man, a New York man, who did not sympathize with the majority of his party on that question. Cleveland had come to the presidency imbued with prejudices of tho New York bankers and was in one sense, (as far as his opinion on silver was concerned), a sectional man. lie had reason to believe now that Mr. Cleveland was better informed on the subject. Mr. Vest declared that on the silver question there was no middle ground. Silver must be put on tho same basis as gold. In tho course of Allison's speech on the the silver bill Teller stated there were to his knowledge two—perhaps three more speeches to be be made upon it, so the final vote would not bo reached today. Senators Ingalls and Wolcott expressed a desire to address the senate to-morrow on the silver bill. Adjourned. IOWA POSTMASTERS. Changer Made in Iowa for the Week Ending May 31.

GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. Senator Jones, of Nevada, Interviewed on the Silver Bill. Washington, June 16.—It is-eaMrhat there will be no vote on the silver bill or any of the pending amendments in the senate to-day. Senator Jones, of Nevada, says several senators desire to speak yet, including Allison and Walcott; that notwithstanding the previous agreement to close the debate at three o’clock no one would be prevented from speaking who desires to do so. He thinks the final vote will not be reached for two or three days. When questioned as to the character of the bill the senate would pass, Jones answered it seemed quite probable it w'ould be the bill providing for free coinage. The Tariff Bill. Washington, June 16. — Printed copies of the tariff bill as amended by tile republican members of the senate finance committee up to Saturday night were laid before the committee to-day. It includes the sugar and tobacco iodides and copies of these were givi n to Senator Carlisle representing the minority. Several changes were made to-day. This will probably be the case every day until tin* bill gets into the the senate. It is expected the subcommittee will bi* able to report the measure Wednesday or Thursday. Mr. McKinley said the changes that will be made in the house bill by the finance committee will be comparatively few and unimportant. Complain of Curious Idlers. Washington, June 16.—Complaint has been made to the police by the officials of the Chinese legation that neither the ladies of the legation nor themselves can .avail themselves of the cooling balconies of their legation residence without attracting a crowd of curious idlers, who by their manners and conduct greatly annoy them. This annoyance is so continual as to practically make prisoners of both tin' ladies and officials of the legation. To Celebrate the Fourth of July. Washington, June IG.—Representative Butterworth to-day presented a reso-ution providing for a meeting of the house on July 4th, and for setting apart of the day to a celebration by suitable exercises and the adaption and promulgation of tin' declaration of independence. It also provides for the presence and participation of the senate, and for an invitation to the society of the “Sons of the American Revolution” to be present. Too Many Forest Fires. Washington, June IG.—The president to-day transmitted to congress a communication from the secretary of the interior relating to the destruction by fires carelessly kindled or left, of timber upon public lands. The president expresses the opinion that if proper penalties were imposed by law and convictions secured much fires of the forests would be prevented. Blair’s Two Amendments. Washington, June IG.—Senator Blair proposed two amendments to tho silver bill to-day. One was to strike out all after the enacting clause and insert a section directing tin* secretary of the treasury, under provisions of the act of 1878, to purchase silver bullion at the market price and coin four million dollars monthly. The other amendment provided that there shall be no legal tender in the United States except gold and silver coin. Placed on the Retired List. Washington, June IG.—Brigadier-General Samuel C. Holabird, quartermaster-general of the army, having reached the statutory age of G4 years, has been placed on the retired list of the army. CHARGES AGAINST SPRINGER. The Many Miners Lose Their Lives in a Pennsylvania Colliery. The Names of the Unfortunate Ones—How the Calamity Occurred—The Recent Storms—The Fatal Work of Lightning'—Calamities. Dunbar, Pa., June IG.—This morning at 11:30 a sullen roar shook the lowly miners dwellings on Hill farm. in Fayette county, near this place, and hundreds of Heightened persons, who knew the sound too well, and feared another mine disaster, soon found their apprehensions well grounded. In a moment the fearful news had spread that the Hill Farm mines had exploded. The low browed hill from which the slope entered shook from mouth to pit and a score of miners houses lining the fatal hill shook for a moment and then poured out their frenzied inmates by hundreds. A rush was made to the mouth of the pit, but ingress was impossible as smoke in dense volumes was issuing forth. Fifty-two miners had gone to work this morning and were in the slope when the explosion occurred. Of these fifty-two eighteen were in the left heading and thirty-four iii the right heading. These in the left heading got out all right. The retreat of the others was cut off and not‘one escaped. Their names are: Joseph Bringer. R. Benger, Milt Forney, Barney Maust, Emanel Maust, Pat Courtney, J. W. Mitchell, Joseph Bigley, Peter Eagan. Robert McGill, Martin Cavene, John Cope, Andrew Cope, Patrick Devilin, oseph Delaney, John Joy, John Devan-ney, D. Davis, Thomas Davis, Patrick Cahill, William Cahill, Jack Mitchell, Dan Smith, Daniel Shearn, William Hayes, James McCleary, Thomas McCleary; Elmer Denny. Of these twenty-one were married and have families. The mine, it seems, has been somewhat troubled with water and an air shaft had been drilled from the surface to a juncture of the right and left shafts where water seemed to be most abundant. As the miners branched off from this point they knew an air hole to be drilled there that had not yet been broken into the mine, but they did know the shaft was to be broken into to-day. This shaft, by the way, being a six inch hole. A miner named Kerwin had been left in the right drift near where that branch joined the mines exit and in the course of his labors broke into the perpendicular shaft. The moment break into flood of water gushed out Kerwin and a man named Lardig, standing by yelled out for some one to save the men in the right shaft as the water pourd down hill in a stream md he feared they would drown. Young Davis Hayes who had seen the affair, leaped forward at call and turned down the left drift to warn his endangered omrades below. Just as he passed the air shaft that had been broken into by the rush of waters changed to an ugly -oar which blanched the cheeks of the men. The flow of water bad changed to deadly volume of fire-damp and as young Hays swung by the shaft a flash of blazing light slid through the shaft from end to end. The daring young man carried an open burning miner’s lamp in his hat, and he had hardly taken a step beyond the airlift when a spark ignited the reservoir of deadly fire damp, and he sank ten feet toward the men who he had hoped to save, and men whom he had certainly doomed. In an instant an unquenchable fire sprang up iii the nine foot vein, just between the main    entrance and on the rignt drift,    forever shutting off thirty-two    men impris oned there. Poor old David Hays, father of the mistaken here, drived mad by the fate of his son, dashed into the sulphurous smoke and strangling firedamp only to fall blindly by the side of his son and to be drawn out an hour ater with James Shearn, both recognized only by their wives. The fire, fanned by the air from the main drift md from the fatal shaft itself, soon sprung into an awful conflagration. It is feared that all of the forty men still in the mine were either killed outright by the explosion or have been suffocated. The excitement is very great. It is impossible to render any assistance. Up to the present time the full particulars of the actual loss of life cannot be given. The House. Washington, June IG.—Williams, of Ohio, presented a petition of the ex-sol-diers of Dayton. Ohio, for the enactment of a law prohibiting the sale, use. manufacture or importation of banners or flags representing the confederate flag or the flag of the anarchists; referred. The house then went into committee of the whole on the sundry civil appropriation bill. On motion of Williams, of Ohio, an amendment was agreed to appointing E. N. Morrill, of Kansas, and Alfred L. Pearson, of Pennsylvania, alternate members of the board of managers of soldiers homes. Mr. Sayers, of Texas, offered au amendment making specific appropriation instead of indefinite appropriation for the payment of back pay and bounty. The amendments© far as it affected back pay was agreed to but on bounty it was lost. Pending action on the bill the committee rose and the house adjourned. Illinois Congressman Charged With “Unworthy Motives.” Springfield, 111., June IG.—Considerable excitement has been occasioned at the home of Congressman Springer by the wide publicity given to an affidavit of Hyland C. Kirk filed with Speaker Reed, charging Mr. Springer with unworthy motives in.defeating Kirk’s claim against the federal government. The only person mentioned in Mr. Kirk's charge is Alex J. Jones, of this city, ex-United States consul to Barranguilla, Columbia, and formerly Mr. Springer’; committee clerk. Mr. Kirk's afti davit says Mr. Springer referred him to Mr. Jones, his clerk, with the statement that his measure was a speculative one. and that if he expected favorable action he would have to see Mr. Springer’s clerk. Mr. Kirk acted on this advice, and when he told Mr. Jones what the chairman of the commit tee had said, Jones said:    “Did Springer tell you that, the robber? I am getting sick and tired of this whole cut-throat business and I will have nothing to do with it.” Mr. Jones pronounced the story utterly untrue iii every particular and said:    “The    author    of    the    affidavit evi dently supposed that I was still United States consul at Barrenquilla. far removed from cable communication, and that before my statement could reach the world his malicious charge would have worked irreparable injury to Congressman Springer. Nothing approaching any such conversation ever occurred. It is true that on one occasion I ejected Kirk from the committee room for assailing the character of two republican congress men, Messrs. McKenna and Laidelow because they were not sufficiently active in supporting his bill, but that is all Mr. Springer’s character needs no en eominum of mine, but that my statement may not be incomplete. I will say that he was against Highland Kirk's claim from the beginning, has been for four years, and this, too, in spite of the repeated threats and attempts of intimidations by the army of Washington lobbyists that favorest Mr. Kirk’s claim. A DEADLY BOLT. struck by lightning. Mr. Nacke’s little girl, who was sitting on the floor in the middle of the sitting room, was stunned by the electric shock, being unconscious for a few moments. Mrs. Reuter was j also rendered unconscious and remained j so for several minutes. Neither of them j sustained any ill after effects. No damage to the houses aside from the knock- j ing down of the chimney tops. POSIK AS MARTYRS. Cretan Christians Entitled to Little Sympathy. The Scene of the Rockford Storm. Rockford, June IG.—One thousand people yesterday visited the scene^ of Friday’s washout along Keith and Kent creeks, where so much damage was done to railroads and other property. The St. Paul and Illinois Central railroads have large gangs of men at work repairing bridges and road beds and relaying the track which was washed away. It is expected that within a few days they will have things in such shape that trains can run on time from here. All through the district where the washout occurred there is much suffering. Many people have been left in destitute circumstances. The morning papers make an appeal to the citizens for aid in their behalf. As far as learned nobody was killed, though many had narrow escapes. The loss to the city amounts to about §30,000. Aggressors in Many Cases—Salisbury to Purchase a Residence in France— The New England Fishery Trouble—Foreign News. Storm Waifs. Albert Ries, aged sixteen, while plowing in a field near Iowa City, Friday, was struck by lightningand killed. The horses were also killed. The residence of Frank Snurr, near Kalo, Webster county, was struck by lightning Saturday and badly shattered. The inmates escaped serious injury. During an electric storm at Dubuque Saturday a groceryman hitched his horse near a telephone pole while he took shelter near by. One terrific bolt spent its force on the wire over the horse's head, knocked the animal off its feet, melted the wire and ran into the ground. The horse got up and fell down several times before the effects of the shock passed off. The driver also was slightly shocked. RAILROAD MISHAPS. Three Men Killed in a Wreek at Paducah, Kentucky. Paducuh, Ivy., June IG.—A freight train on the Newport News and Mississippi Valley railroad was derailed at Kerrville, Tenn., this morning. The engine and ten cars were badly wrecked. Engineer Gwynn Perkins and an unknown negro tramp were crushed to death. Rush Marshall was-fatally hurt. A Burlington Flyer Wrecked. Council Bluffs, la., June IG.—The morning the Burlington “Flyer” wa: was wrecked near Island park station, by a defective rail. The baggage car, coach, chair car and smoker turned over into the ditch. Judge H. E. Beemer, of of Red Oak, was seriously, but not fatally hurt. A number of other passengers were bruised, but none fatally. A Lady Seriously Hurt. [Special Correspondence.] Ft. Madison, la., June IG.—While Mrs. J no. Cosgrove and daughter, of Appanoose township, Hancock county, 111 were opt driving Sunday the horse became scared turned around sharply and ran throwing Mrs. Cosgrove out, her head struck against a rock, lier left ear being torn off by the contact. She was also badly bruised about the hips# She was taken to Mr. Spaulding’s home Drs. Philpott and Newlon, of this called to attend her, London June 16.—The correspondent of the Daily News at Vienna learns that since the departure of Chakir Prsha. governor of Crete, for Constantinople, whither he has been summoned to report upon the exact state of affairs upon that unhappy island, the troubles between the Christian and mussulman Cretans have very much increased. The present condition of affairs there is represented to be very alarming and as requiring immediate remedy. The weight of evidence goes to prove that although the Christian Cretan is regarded as a martyr outside of his own couutry and is generally believed to b e most cruelly persecuted by the so-called Turks, who are in a very small minority, as a matter of fact he is really the aggressor in nine cases out of ten and the appropriator of the widespread sympathy that should fall upon his mussulman countrymen. Moreover, the Creton mussulman is no more a Turk than his Christian fellow-countryman. Both are Greeks and the one is equally intolerant, vindictive, brutal and mendacious with the other. The announcement is made that Lord Sailsbuary intends to purchase the Chateau d'Eu, near Le Treport, on the English Channel, in France, now the property of the Comte de Paris. The details of the purchase, it is stated, have all been arranged and the transaction will be consummated within a short time. Concerning the son of the Comte de Paris, the Due d'Orleans, the Paris Echo is authority for the statement that he will enter the Russian army as soon as the gayeties of the London season are over. Just now the young man is being regarded in London as a hero for having undergone imprisonment he could not avoid. There is a momentary lull in the Newfoundland fishery troubles and the efforts of the delegation to stir up public feeling by getting themselves interviewed in some of the London papers have fallen flat. The English people have got over much of their old antipathy to France. and it would require something more nearly effecting their own interests than a dispute about codfish and lobster raisee by a few hundred colonial fishermen to change them from their present mood. The French ministry evidently prefers to leave the Newfoundland question in its present shape in the hope of using it as a lever to effect a compromise with England regarding the occupation of Egypt. French influence at Constantinople seems to be again in the ascendant, and the recent demand of the sultan for the withdrawal of the British troops is credited to the joint action of France and Russia. Macomb. He claims to have backing from a St. Louis concern from whom he will get his liquors. It is not believe i the Carthage people will tolerate any such thins. Frank Dobbs Free.

A Row On in Fast Bound Freight. Chicago, June IG.—There is another row on in east bound freight, caused by the Lehigh Valley line announcing a rate of 17X cents on fifth-class traffic to the seaboard. The Lackawana line also created a commotion by reducing the wool rate to New York from 50 to 40 cents. Mozambique—Boycotting Fnglisli. Lisbon, June IG.—It is rumored that two regiments of infantry, a battery of artillery and one hundred and fifty marines will be sent to Mozambique. Quillimane advices say the governor and a posse have decided to organize a colonial marine service and irregular forces for the Zambesi, also to supprrss English coin and adopt other measures to boycott the English. The British vice-consul was compelled to quit his residence and take refuge at the Italian consulate. The Surgeon’s Knife Prevents a Woman's Burial While in a Trance. When I commenced dissecting at the hospitals I had some difficulty in surmounting the repugnance which the smell of a corpse causes to every buinan^ being. But it took me still longer to overcome the horror I%felt each time I plunged my knife into a yet organized body, which, although dead, looks so much like a living one. In time, however,‘I conquered this aversion, and the interest awakened by science soon deadened my softer'feelings to the ghastly details of the business. One dull December morning, on arriving at the Hospital de la Pitie—where as an indoor student I was training for the medical profession—Imet one of the janitors, who told me' that a certain patient in whom I took considerable interest had died during the night and been placed in the amphitheatre. It was, I say, a cold and dark morning. The court yard was empty. I entered the dingy dissecting hall and drew near to the table whereon the corpse lay outstretched, with every line exposed. The body was that of a woman, as perfect a fashioned woman as I had ever seen in flesh or marble. She was about 25 years of age, with a strongly knit frame and a wealth of auburn hair that fell about tho slab in disorder. The face was handsome and serene. The hands and feet were delicate. I noticed that the forefinger of the left hand was' pricked and betrayed the hard worked needle woman. Poor, unfortunate girl, neither mother nor sister had come forward to claim her mortal remains. I may here state that during a consultation of the head doctors over her case when she was yet alive, at which the students were all present, I had become convinced that an operation with the knife might have saved her. The head doctors, however, thought otherwise, and as I had no consulting voice in the matter no surgical operation was attempted. I imparted my doubts to thfe students, who agreed that I should get her body, as I wished to verify by a post-mortem how far out I was in my inference that an operation on the living woman might have been safely performed. The patient lingered on for some time; so long in that I began to think -lie would get well again and I be defrauded of an interesting pathological case. So matters stood when the janitor gave me that morning the welcome intelligence of her death. I say “welcome,” because however fiendish such an expression of sen timent may sound to unprofessional ears I had grown downright impatient to verify my conjectures. Her ailment consisted in a loose, fatty tumor on the si tie of the neck which weighed over a pound. T got my truss, donned my black’ apron and was soon ready. I determined to operate as conscientiously on the dead as I should have done on the live woman. My scalpels and instruments were all well within reach on the table. I raised an eyelid, but there was no trace of life in those dull, lusterless orbs. The jaws were fast and the members rigid in death. I inserted tile probe and plied the knife with the utmost care, nipping the arteries as they were disclosed, untiDa dozen or more held the principle vessels of the neck. Lightning Kills a Young Illinois Lady and Injures Others. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Warsaw, 111., June IG.—As Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wilson, accompanied by Zora Yoe, Mrs. James Workman and John Wilson, were returning from Tioga during a severe storm Saturday evening, and when about a mile from town, lightning struck and instantly killed Miss Zora Yoe, setting her clothes on fire and frightfully burning the body. The others were more or less injured, two being rendered insensible, one knocked from the wagon, and all being severely burned, and having their clothing torn iii shreds. The wagon was also somewhat demolished, and one of the horses knocked down. The strange freaks of lightning are shown by the fact that although Miss Yoe was seated between the two gentlemen, it should select her as its victim, while they were but slightly affected. The other ladies seated immediately behind the gentlemen, each with a baby in her arm. Both the women were rendered unconscious, while the babies were not in the least injured. The Missouri Pacific Cuts the Rates, Chicago, June IG.—The action of the Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe roads in making a round trip rate of §18 between St. Louis and Denver for the annual meeting of the Travelers’ Protective association created a breeze at the meeting of the passenger association.

The top appears to have been cut short off. Fire has long been known to exist in the crater and tin1 formations of the valley and ridges below are partly of volcanic origin. Canadian Sealers Going to Behring Sea. Victoria, B. C., June IG.—The sealing schooner Lillie sailed Saturday for Behring Sea to hunt for seals. Her owner said that he had given the captain positive orders to hunt in forbidden waters. Other owners had also given their vessels similar instructions, and word has been sent by a vessel to all schooners cruising on the west coast of Vancouver Island to proceed to Behring Sea. Her majesty’s ship Amphion will leave the Esquimault dry dock in a few days and there is a settled conviction that she has orders from the imperial government to cruise in Behring Sea and look after the interests of any Victoria sealing vessels which may enter the disputed waters. Naval officers are looking for active work this summer. Exciting news from Behring Sea may be looked for about the latter part of July. Cloakmakers Strike. New York, June 14.—The strike of the cloakmaters is spreading. One thousand are already out and it is expected the number will be increased to eight thousand by the end of the week. HURT AT A PICNIC. Twenty-Five People Injured by a Falling Bridge at Cleveland. Cleveland, Ohio, June IG.—There was a serious accident last evening at Beyerle's park, a summer resort in the southern part of the city. At least 5,000 people had assembled to see a man jump from a cable stretched]across a miniature artificial lake. People stood all around the lake, and a hundred or more were on a rustic bridge about ten feet above the ground, and extending from a bluff out across the lake. The jumper made the descent about 6:30 o’clock. He struck the water near the shore, and the people on the bridge made a rush for the place. Nearly all of them were massed on a thirty-five foot span adjoining the bluff, and the structure fell with a crash, going down in the middle. The footpaths under the bridge were crowded with people, and upon these the timbers were thrown while those on the bridge were thrown in a heap in me center of the span where it struck the ground. At least twenty-five persons were injured seriously. A Shoe Factory Burned at Brockton, Massachusetts.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Davenport, la.. June IG.—Early Sunday morning another drowning occurred at this city, or is supposed it) have occurred. Frank Clooney, a twelve-year-old son of Dennis Clooney, was sent by his employer with a horse and wagon to bring a quantity of meat to his shop. The boy’s long continued absence caused uneasiness. An investigation finally revealed the wheels of the wagon projecting above the water of the Mississippi at at point where the current is very swift. When drawn from the water the drowned horst* was still attached to it. Nothing was to bt' found of the boy. tion was complete. Just at that moment the prosecutor, always an early bird, en teredthe hall and walked up to the table where I was busy. He Dent over the corpse and scrutinized with great attention the cavity in the neck. .Suddenly, as he gazed into the wound, he started back as if he had received a galvanic shock. I looked at him in astonishment . Ile once more bent down, distended to its utmost the gaping hole in the neck, and exclaimed: “Why, man, the woman, is alive. lier carotid beats. Here, janitor, lend a hand to take this woman up stairs.” I in turn peered into the wound, and sure enough a full view of the main vessel in the neck which conveys the blood from the aorta to the head could be had inside, and it throbbed with a slow, irregular motion. The woman was in a trance. She was at once put into a warm bed, restoratives were applied and lier neck was properly bandaged. Her life, however, was for a time in great danger, but she eventually recovered and left the hospital cur;-ti. Instances like this, although of a very rare occurrence, do sometimes happen in the dissecting rooms of hospitals, but I have never heard of any such case at the Amphitheatre of Clamart, where pupils prosecute their anatomical lessons.

In the innermost recesses of your brain, O enterprising citizen, are you not conscious of something you were to have done to-day. but for the life of you you cannot tell what it is? Look iii your memorandum book, perhaps you will find it there, but more likely not. Con over in your mind all the things you have left undone or were to do. Can you think of it? Let us help you. It was not to bring home to your wife a spool of No. GO cotton. nor a new tube for the nursing Dottle. It was not to take up the parlor carpet and beat it. thank heaven that is done, nor take down the hall stove. Was it to put up the window screens? No, not that. Nor yet to pay that little account at Goose A Shears for your last winters suit. You promised to pay it today. but they can wait a little longer. You have made no engagements to meet a party at Crystal or Lone Tree lake, the matter lies considerably nearer home than that and is of far more importance. Jog your memory there! Don't sit as if you were going to sleep in meeting. “Meeting, did you say? Urn, ah—Why yes, to bt* sure. Meeting, seems to me twas something about a meeting, but for the life of me I—Hold. I have it! That board of trade meeting this afternoon. I had like tti have forgot that. I must make it a point to be there, though the heavens fall.” Gentle reader, that Board of Trade meeting is called tor four o'clock this afternoon and you are due, as the base ball cranks say. Go and rap out a single, a double, perchance a three-bagger for Burlington. Put on your batting clothes and Fro in to win. MERCER COUNTY REPUBLICANS.

ON THE MIGHTY RIVER. The Beach of Death. It lies between the ^anding place at Quarantine and Fort \\ adsworth, on Staten Island. It is a pretty, pebbly beach, slightly curving into a bay. It is a place where children like to play, gathering pebbles or dabbling in the limpid water that teats upon it. A more peaceful looking little stretch of shore you never looked upon. Every now and then the waters of the Narrows bear to and deposit on it the swollen, bloated body of a drowned man or woman, or maybe a child. They all come ashore here, all that come a-bore at all on the northern part of Staten Island. Nobody can tell the reason why. There is no peculiarity of tide or current that affects boats in this manner. There must become peculiarity, yet it is not enough to send boats or floating debris - ashore here any more than at other points. Yet for the bodies of the human dead this little arc of land has some mysterious attraction that IJor one cannot explain. What a chance is here for romance to build a ghostly fabric!—New York Herald.

Cap lain Durham went down the river to Keokuk with the General Barnard and left Captain Tibbals here in charge of the Phenix to raise the sunken craft, Diamond Jo, which went down in May 1889. The Diamond Jo was originally a steamer, but later was transformed into a coal flat. It was accidentally sunk on the Wisconsin side, near the state line while being towed to the Eagle Point ways for repairs. When Captain Dunham departed for Keokuk, he gave Captain Tibbies until Tuesday to lift the wreck, but the work was completed yesterday in the unprece dented period of twelve hoars.

I immediately applied three—one over the kidneys, one on the small of my back and one on my hip joint, where I had considerable >* iatic pain. The effect was simply wonderful, in six hours I was able to sleep, the violent pain having mostly ceased. I continued to wear the piasters for some days, when I felt I was almost entirely cured.
