A panic in the Church of St. Francis Xavier in sixteenth Street near sixth Avenue to night caused a Rush of women from one of the galleries and in the tumult which ensued six women and one boy were trampled under foot and killed. The audience was composed entirely of women and children it being the women s week in Lent. The number of persons injured could not be ascertained. The bodies of the unfortunates were taken to the station House where they remain awaiting identification. The Church was terribly crowded principally by women and children. The galleries were also filled to overflowing. Father Langcake was preaching the Sermon and had been speaking about ten minutes when a woman went into an hysterical fit in the gallery on the Side of the Church toward sixth Avenue. This created quite a stir and the commotion increased in the endeavours of the crowd to find out what was the matter. At this juncture a cry of fire was heard and a Rush was made for exit from the gallery. The doorway was blocked for a moment by a very Large woman and this Check caused the panic to increase. The crowd hauled the woman Down the Steps and in the Rush that followed seven persons were crushed to death and Many others injured and had their clothing torn from them. The wounded were taken Home before their names could be Learned.

The people in the body of the Church were quieted and dismissed in an orderly manner. New York March. At the time of the alarm last evening in St. Francis Xavier Church which resulted so disastrously father Longcake was preaching on a a hell and the horrors of the damned a and perfect stillness prevailed. Suddenly As the preacher was picturing the torments of Purgatory a Young woman in the Northern Corner of the West gallery overcome by her feelings fainted and gave utterance to hysterical screams startling the worshippers and causing them to Spring to their feet. Next moment some reckless person cried a a fire a and this gave Rise to a panic. Father Longcake stopped and implored the people to keep their seats As there was absolutely no cause for alarm. Father Merrick the pastor heard screams and rushed into the Sanctuary. He called upon the congregation to keep their seats As there was no tire and no cause for alarm. The Sexton also endeavoured to Stop the panic. These efforts were partially successful. Father Langcake retired to the vestry room and in a few moments returned attired in his Robe and uttered the Benediction dismissing be congregation and the Organ began to play. The women in the main body of the Church and in the East gallery passed out in an orderly manner and not a person in the portions of the Church last named was injured. The people occupying that portion of the gallery where the commotion had begun and entered listened to neither friends pastor Sexton Benediction nor Organ. They rushed toward the exits from the gallery and almost crazed with fear pushed and fought their Way into the narrow stairway leading to sixteenth Street. The stairway is hut four feet wide and within three or four Steps of the Bottom makes a Sharp turn before it reaches the Vestibule. The crowd of maddened women rushed Down stairs and would probably have All reached the Street in safety hut at the Bend in the stairway an aged and very Stout woman in her eagerness to reach a place of safety fell headlong Down the stairs. Before she could regain her feet the frantic crowd pressed on toward the Vestibule and came upon the prostrate form and those in the Foremost ranks fell upon her. In a moment the passageway was choked and a scene of the wildest confusion and most intense excitement ensued. The crowd in fear pressed on with almost irresistible Force and nothing could he done to Stop their Advance. The crazed women fought their Way toward the choked up stairway tumbling upon those who had fallen in front and crushing the life out of them. They screamed and fought like maniacs and every Effort to hold them Back so that the stairway could be cleared was of no Avail. Father Whyte and several other priests who were in the Church Parlours at the time the panic occurred rushed around to the front of the Church and assisted by patrolmen by main Force dragged out some of the women who were lying on the stairs. A number of women were then got out alive and Only slightly injured. In their struggle for life they were almost denuded of their clothing. As the priests and police aided by a number of citizens made their Way up the staircase they found lying on the Steps five other women and a Small boy.

The following Story will recall the wonderful travels of the famous a a Moonstone of Wilkie Collins among other interesting stories of a lost rings the following is related of an officer who bought a valuable Diamond just after the Indian enmity. The officer had it set in a ring and wore it for several years quite safely hut one Day chancing to be in London he went into a shop to buy a pair of gloves and looking at the ring on his Little Finger he observed that the setting was empty the Diamond gone. He examined the Glove his pockets the floor of the shop no Trace of the Stone was to be seen and so he gave it no As lost. However he mentioned the matter at the club and told the club master to Post up a notice offering ten pounds Reward to anyone who should find the Diamond. A Day or two afterwards the Stone was brought to him. It had been found by one of the housemaids in the darkish passage that led to the billiard room. The Reward was gladly paid and the Diamond taken to the jewelery a to he once More firmly replaced in the ring. Again some years passed. The officer had been Back to India and was Home on furlough and had gone to Scotland to shoot with friends who had taken a Moor in the Highlands. One hot August Day he had been out for Sev eral hours tramping Over Miles and Miles of close Heather grouse shooting. He was still walking when a Covey of Birds Rose a Little Way off. He raised his gun to take aim when his eyes chanced to fall on his ring and he saw that the setting was once More empty. Stopping to look at it the Birds got away and he Laid Down his gun on the Heather beside him and carefully examined the place where he stood with a very feeble Hope of finding the glittering Stone. He stooped for his gun and the thought flashed into his mind a a in la turn out the charge the thing is just possible a he did so Drew the wad and then Shook out the contents of the barrel shot powder and the Diamond it had slipped unnoticed into the muzzle when he was loading and but for the Lucky Chance that had caused him to remark its absence from the ring it would have been fired away the next moment. Another visit to the jeweler and the ring resumed its place on the Finger of its owner and three or four years passed away. The officer had again returned to India and was with his regiment which was encamped near a Large station portions of some other regiments being close to them. He was acting As adjutant to the general in command and was writing at a Small table placed close to the door of his tent. As his hand passed rapidly Over the paper his troublesome Diamond once More dropped from the setting and fell on the table beside him. Being in a hurry he merely uttered an angry exclamation pushing the Stone close to the Ink stand and went on with his writing. Presently a messenger came to say that the general wished to see him immediately. He forgot All about the Stone threw on his uniform buckled on his sword and started at once for the quarters of the commanding officer. He was detained some Little time and when he returned to his own tent he looked directly for the Diamond which he had meanwhile recollected but it was gone. A thief had been there during his absence had seen and appropriated the Stone and he never saw or heard of it again though he offered a Liberal Reward for its and nutrition. The weight of the body has often been assumed As an infallible proof of the maintenance of the condition of the body or of a deposition of tissue and the food which keeps up a Many a weight has been regarded As on that account satisfactorily nutritious. But the weight of the body is no criterion of the value of the food taken because while the weight remains constant or even increases water May increase in the tissues and albumen and fat diminish or there May he an increase of weight and deposition of fat while there is also at the same time a diminution of the albumen of the body. Badly nourished people Are usually not lighter than others but their bodies con Tain More water and less albumen and fat than those who Are Well nourished. Every cattle feeder knows that cattle which Are being fattened do not at first increase in weight proportionately to the food they take. And yet people commonly regard weight As of great importance in the Case of men though a Butcher will not buy a carcass on the merits of its weight alone.
