Aid .Poor Redeem Cherished Articles' I Paris, Sept Marquis de JGuerry has bequeathed to tbe Icily of Paris for tbe redemption of small objects pledged Iu state pawnshops by the poor. Tbe legacy has Us origin in a visit paid one day by tbe marquise to the chief depot of the Mont de Piete, as tho state pawnbroking establishment is called in France, where her atten- tion, was attracted by a silver christ- ening set consisting of a knife, fork, and spoon, auoh as is given to a child j on its baptism or Its first eommunioii. She set was tarnished with age and the .ticket, showed it had been in pawn for half a century. Tbe murqulse was told thai regu- larly for many years. since the gift was pawned, either the father or the mother of die recipient had come and paid the trifling interest on the pledge, doubtless a relic of a dead child. Each year the man or his wife was a little older, a little shabbier, a Uttlo sadder, but tbe interest was punctually paid. Then the man ceased his annual visits and only the woman came until she too failed to "appear. Xeitber was ever seen again, and tbe little christ- ening gift remained in its wrapping getting blacker aud dustier until it seen by the Marquise de Guerry.

Belleville train anil a freight train at the Lock street crossing of the G.T.R. at fl o'clock Wednesday night, and prevent- ed a bad accident. Just as Ihu passenger train from Belleville approached the cross- ing, an eastbound freight train, evi- dently trying to reach the siding east oi Lock street before the passenger train arrived, swung around the curve and stopped there. The engineer on the passenger train, apparently under HIP impression Unit the track was clear, was banking his train in at a' fast rate, and a. collision seemed im- minent. The little Cunningham girl, whose .home Is adjacent to the track, saw; the danger "arid acted quickly. There was only one thing to the :passenger train; and, running to. the crossing, the plucky little girl step- ped out onto the track and, standing in. the glare of the light from the arc lamp at the corner, pulleil the long white ribbons from her hair and waved them frantically. The engineer saw the little figure between the rails, and, throwing on the emergency brakes, brought his train to a stop in time to avert the- collision, lie leaned from the cab and shouted to the little heroine as be passed: 'MVell done, little ,girl." Tht, presence of mind displayed by tbe little one, was indeed remarkable in such a young girl.

HOME RULE IS AN IMPOSSIBILITY THAT IS, WHAT NEW PRESBYTER- IAN MINISTER FROM DONE- GAL SAYS ABOUT IT Toronto, Ont. Sept. pass- ing of Home Rule would mean the signal for civil war in Ireland.

The Opposi- tion to Home Rule does uot all come from the Orangemen. Tbe Orangemen compose the minority of the opposi- tion. The majority are people who aro not to be carried away by mom- entary excitement or party feetlng. The opposition comes from tlie solid, solemn farmers, shopkeepers and men of business.

FAMOUS MANSION BURNED London, Sept.. I Tall, Cheshire, of the most, famoim tim- bered mansions in England, has b-een burned. Tho lost; is exclu- sive of works of art of trreal value. The owner of the estate is Colonel Holdfiworfh, whoso wife, formerly Mrs. Aflheion Smith, is one of tlie most popular hostesses In London so- ciety, Tho occupants had a thrilling escape, escaping in their night SHIiker's Story The story of the shooting, as told1 by Leslie SllHker, who was with the victim at the time, goes to show that Egan know that Christian was in the city. "During the day he said to me, 'You know that fellow Christian that I had spine i-rouble with last winter? He's in the city today, and I believe he's looking for trouble.' T told Pat to careful and not get Into any foolish trouble. "Last night, after supper, we came up town to go to the poet office. As we 'were passing up the street by tbe Alexandra, Pat said, 'There's that guy now.1 As we came up with Christian and the fellows with him, he passed some insulting remark, which I don't quite remember, and Pat answered him back in just the same kind of language, calling him a half 'breed We passed on, and went to the post office. The fellows must have followed us, for as were coming 'back to go to the house, Christian stepped out from one of the little alcoves in front of. the Bank of Commerce, and said, 'Come here, Eg- an, I want to speak to you.' "We barely turned our heads, Egan answering that he didn't want any- thing to do with Christian. We had probably taken a couple of stepa when 'w-e heard a deafening report. Pat grabbed his side, yelling, "My God, he got mo.' He staggered a lit- tle, but straightened-up. He seemed in a sort of frenzy, saying, 'Wlisre'a my gun? If I only had a Christian Arreited "Bryan, who was with us, and I started down the street, hardly know- ing what to do, aud "Christian turned to go up the street. Then, he started across toward the park, and we saw Sergt. Kroning come up and take his gun away from him. arresting the ac- cused and taking him to the police sta'tion. I3gau did not seem to be badly hurt at the time, and walked to Dr. McNally's office, although he stag- gered before he got there, as the ex- citement passed over. "It's my honest opinion that Christ- ian 'meant to get him, and get him right, for bo had been- drinking all day, and was laying for Mr. Bryan Saw It M. S. Bryan, formerly police court stenographer, had just returned to the city yesterday from Macleod, and was also with Bgau, when the shoot- ing took place. He bad not thought that there 'would be any trouble.-and was unable to believe It, even after be knew she facts. The shooting was done in the most cowardly manner from the back, Clvristian standing probably ten feet immediately behind Egan whan he drew and fired. Tlie gun was an Iver- Johnston, .38 a barrel of double length, which Christian had purchased while in the city about a week ago. The bullet entered the fleshv part, of Ibe right side, and passed through the aide, coming out in from, leaving only two small holes, which bled very little. The arrest, of Christian was made by Sergt. Kroning, in the face of the smoking gun, which the prisoner still held in his hands. KTiming was stand- ing on the Co-'ildale Hotel corner, when he heard the shot fired." He sa'w Christian run across the street to- ward the park, and stand under tho trees. Kroning went after him, draw- ins his sun, and although Christian covered him with his gun as he ramc up, the sergeant never stopped till he bad taken tbe weapon away, and put the nippers on the prisoner. Christian seemed somewliat. dazed by wha't. he had done, but did not deny that bo meant to do the shooting. One Thing After Another The whole affair has caused a sen- sation in the city, coming as it does right on 'tho heels of tho recent trou- ble in police circles. The need for an immediate. re-organization of the po- lice force is recognized by Mayor who stated this morning the new chief would he on the ground within the shortest, possible time. Doyle and Green, who were with Christian at the time of tho shooting, were also arrvifltcd by Sorgt, Kroning, and charged with bcinp; drnnk and dis- orderly this morning.
