Miss Tennant Shares the Name and Fame of the Great Explorer. HE GOES TO THE ALTER WITH A 0ANE HENfiY Stanley is probably the least envied bridegroom among all the long list of those whe have been showered with costly wedding gifts. His presents came from merchants, tbe nobility, members of relief expeditions, and from all quarters. Yet tb>. universal sentiment is that he do-serves them all, and the universal hope is that he may have many years of married bliss. Fou '.he time being the Legislature of Lu(tlali"i� a-� .ost July 13.-If the world's most eminent explorer of the present generation has been able in a twinHing to transport himseif and beautiful bridu yesterday from Westminister Abbey to tbe loveliest spot on the sub-tropical shores of that dreamland lake which finds realization iu the Victoria Nyanza, that perpetual sum' mer sea in the heart of the Dark Continent, he could not by the auuihilation of time and space have hit upon a more de Hghtful day in all the year for his wedding. Honry M. Stanley and Miss Dorothy Ten nant linked their lives at the Abbey yesterday, and the gulden link was welded by Very Ruv. George Granville Bradley, D. D., Dean of Westminster; Very Rev. Frederick William Far rat, D. D., F. R, S., Archbishop of Westminster, and Right Rev. William Lloyd Carpenter, D. D., Lord Bishop of Ripon. Fully two hours before the time net for the ceremony every nook aud cranny of the main body of the Abbey was crara-ed with those who were fortunate enough to receive cards of invitation, while the contiguous streets were packed with a surging mass of humanity. So overcrowded was the throng that had secured access to a temporary platform for spectators that it collapsed when tho ceremony was concluded, and several of its occupants were somewhat bruised. THE SCENES IN THE ABUEY, When tbe north transept, which was given over to the general public, was thrown open, the crowd moved forward like an irresistible torrent, and in a very short time not an inch of space retvtaiued unoccupied. As the hands of the clock j indicated the hour of 1:50. Mr, Stanlev walking erect ., . . , ,, �u� u^mi me arm of his befit man, Oount D'Aroche, the representative of King Leopold of Belgium, entered the door. Mr. Stanley wore a froek coat, with a white flower in the button hole, and walked with a cane. Besides Count D'Aioche, Mr. Myer, a brother-in-law of Miss Ten-nanr, and Dr. Parke, A. M. Jephsou, Captain Nelson and Lieutenant Stairs and Bonny, who were with Mr. Stanley on his last expedition into Africa, grouped themselves around the groom. Five minutes later Miss Tennant, accompanied by her brother, Charles CoombeTennant, entered the Abbey and walked with stately grace along the aisle. Her train was borne by two of her nephews, dressed as pages. Their costumes were of the time of Charles I, and consisted of white satin cavalier suits, with large white hats, ornamented with ostrich plumes. The hridesmiids were Miss Sylvia Myers, tho bride's niece, and Miss Finlay, both of whom are very pretty. The dresses were white satin sacks aud ovorskirts of crepe lisse, and they wore wreaths of jasmine and carried boquets of white roses. THE lilUDE'S Hlfll COSTUME. The bride's costume was a petticoat and long court train of white Duchcsse satin curded silk, and a bodice of white satin, trimmed with lace. The front of the skirt aud the cordage were embroider' ed with white silk and poarls, and the edge of the petticoat aud tram wure trim tned with garlands of orange blossoms. The bodice was set off with a high Medici collar, embroidered with pearls. A tulle veil was fastened in her hair with diamond stars,and this was surmounted by a wreath of orange blossoms. Her shoes were of j silver leather with diamond buckles. 1 Arouud her neck was a superb diamond necklace, the gift of Sir William W. Mack-inuon, Chief of tho EugKsh East Africa Company, from which depended the diamond set miniature of the Queen, preaont ed by her Majesty as a wedding gilt. Miss Tennant alBO wore a diamond aigretto and diamond brooch, the gilts of Mr. Stanley. Her bouquet was made up of white cape jasmine, gardenias and tube roses, and in its centre was a paucratmm lily. 1IKK TRIBUTE TO LIVIN'-STONK. While moving towards the altar the bride, stopped, broke the line of tho procession and walked slowly tn the tablet under which lies the dust of Livingstone, and placed thereon a wreath of white tl twt'if*, iu tho ecuire of which was a scar-In! h-titr 'L " Then, lesuimiightfr place, she walk til i" Ihu altar with head erect and flut-hpd checks. Mr. Stanley lose to reuuivu her, and both Look their place* at the altar. Tbe Rorv.ce was bef;uu by Canuou F.inar, and was taken up by the Bishop of Ripou on the plighting of the troth. Then followed a full choral service, alter which Dr. Butler made an addresB of congratulation, and the rc:enioay was concluded by tbe rendering of the "Marriage Hymn." Mr. Stanley's voice was almost inaudible as he repeated the service* but Miss Tenant's was clear and steady, and only faltered as she repeated the words "iu Bickuoss and in health." TIIE BRIDAL RECEPTION. After the service tbe party proceeded to the residence of the bride's mother, in Richmond Terrace, where a reception was held m two large marquees, which were crowded. Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone, Sir Garnet Wolseloy and Lady Wolsoley, Sir Lyon Playfair and Lady Playfair, tbe Baroness Burdett-CouUs, Sir William Vernon Harcourt, John Morley, Sir John Millais and a host of other well-known persons were present. The number of presents received b) Miss Tennant, and which occupy every foot of available space in her commodious apartments, is aimost beyond realization. Tbe donors include the Queen, the Prince and Princess of Wales, tbe Duke of Fife, Mr. Gladstone, Baroness Burdett-Coutts, Lord Bias3y, and hundreds of other prom, neut and titled persons. The oddest of gifts is a bottle of water from tbe Victoria Nyanza, and the most valuable is an immense uncut diamond presented by Andrew Carnegie. # A CLINTON COUNTY FASTER! PUNGENT POT roUKBI. Mrs. Daniel Snyder, of Mackeyville, Not Tasted Pood for Thirty-Four Days. NO 0AUSE P0E HEE STRANGE ACTION CYCLONE AT ST. PAUL A Large Number of People Killed, the Latett Kitimate Heine TMrty-S.x. St. Paul, July 13 -A cyclone struck the northern edge of this city this afternoon, and the latest estimate of the loss of life is thirty-sir. It is reported that from eleven to twenty-Gve wore killed at Coleman Lake, twonty to thirty at Little Canada, two or more at Lake Joanna, several at Bass Lake, and that the cyclone reached White Bear Lake. The first roports are from people who have come in from the devastated district, and they also report great damage to property. If W hite Bear Lake was in the pathjof tbe storm the loss there would be very heavy, both of life and property. Great crowds are there to-day. m eniog a storm began to collect over the region of Lake McCaTron, two or three miles north of this city, soon taking on a rotary motion and tbe terrible appearance of a cyclone. Hundreds of citizens watched the clouds aa they swept together and followed their course to tbe northwest in which direction many had gone to spend (he day at some of the many little lakes that are scattered over this country. Anxiety for the absent ones drew many down town during the evening to learn the first possible particulars of what was thought to be undoubtedly a disastrous storm, and so the reportb indicated. At Lake Coleman at least two persons had been killed and a number injured. To the north and east of the city there are a great number ot little lakes which are sought by multitudes every Sunday. Lake Coleman is one of these and the damage there w&b very heavy. When the storm struck the Little lake a boat house was lifted np bodily and overturned in the water, and a boat load of persons was given a similar treatment. Other buildings were demolished or badly wrecked. Passing from the starting point the cyclone struck Lake Joanna, Lake Gervais, Lake Vannais, Little Canada, and passed on about four miles to tho east of White j Bear Lake. The passengers on the St. Paul and Duluth train, which left White Bear at 4:45, were approaching Gladstone when they observed the cyclone forming, and watched its whirling motion with in-tetest, rather than fear or excitement. Not so with the engineer, however. lie saw the threatening aspect of the storm, aud with a startled look ahead to see if all was clear he took a firmer grip on The throttle and the engine leaped forward under hiB touch. His quick action undoubtedly saved the lives of the whole crowded train full, fur tho twisting, terrifying devastation crossed the track scarcely mote more than a minute after the train had passed. The placo where tbe cyclone struck the ground and caused loss of life was on the shores of Lake Gorvaia, whore J. H. Schrumair, of this city, had a summer cottage in tho little basin where Simon Good was also located. The funnel Kb aped cloud Bwooped down on them, demolished the dwellings and a number of other buildings iu the same neighborhood. In the wreck of the Schumair House five were killed aud ten injured. Iu tbe Good cottage the following were killed: Mrs. G. H. Schumair aud Charles Schumair, St. Paul, aDd Uov. Mr. Pbaefler, of Bun-nan, Texas,who was viB'tingthcrn. George Mil'or, of the First National Bank, this city; Pete Schumair's driver, whose name was unknown. The bodies of Mrs. Schu-mntr. her sun and Mr. Phaeflisr have not yet been found. At Price Park Saturday afternoon the game between the Hill nine and Fleming ton resulted in a victory for the former, the Boore being Hill 20, Flemington IB. VoHltlveljf BcfOMS to Tfcke .Noorlilimentor Wkt�r-hm MoDImkm and ! Appiuvntly or Sound Mlnd-Cnable to Talk and Death Likely to Oocor at Anj Moinsnt-A Severs Lois. Mackeyyilie baa a woman who is making a record for herself aa a faster which promises to equal that of Tanner, if her strength does not fail too soon. Tbe lady is Mrs. Daniel Snyder, who, with her husband resides In the prosperous village of Mackeyville In Nittany Valley. Mrs. Snyder commenced her fast on Sunday, June 10th, consequently yesterday waa the thirty-fourth day since food passed her lips, so far as is known. During the thirty-four days Mrs. Snyder positively refused to eat food of any kind, but occasionally took a little water. For the past five days cot even water has passed her lips and she has become very much emaciated, being reduced to a mere skeleton. No cause is known for the woman's singular action in refusing to take food. She has no dfease and is apparently of sound mind. Her condition at present is similar to that of a person greatly reduced by fever or other wasting disease and she is unable to speak owing to her weakness. About two years ago a Philadelphia doctor performed an operation on Mrs. Snyder for the removal of an ovarian tumor, but physicians say her continued fast is no way a result of the operation. This is said to be the third time Bhe has fasted for long periods of time, although in neither of the previous instances did her fast continue so long. Mrs. Snyder's death is likely to result in a few days as she is now thought by physicians to be in too low a condition to revive. Accident to Two Young Ladles. Two young ladies, daughters of William Brumgard of East Wittany Valley, were considerably iniurad vnatfirdav *vo-s by the �nimal frightened at a pile of dirt in the street, made a short turn, and dashed across the pavement at tho corner of Belief on te avenue and Commerce street. The buggy collided with the lamp post and was upset. The young ladies were thrown over the fence and into the lot at the corner. One of them was considerably injured but the other's injuries were slight. The horse was caught soon after, but the buggy is a complete wreck. The ladies secured the loan of a spring wagon and after their horse bad been hitched to it tiiey proceeded on their way home. A Large Body of Loc*. The large body of loose logs Moating in the pool of the d&m give Captain Shaw considerable trouble, as when the wind blows from the east the logs all move up stream and surround his steamer. It is estimated that there are five million feet of logs afloat now aid others are turned out of the boom daily. The low stage of water prevents them from going over the dam, and causes the boom men also considerable annoyance The GlaM Bower* Camp.
