OCEAN BEACH DISASTER.
The Cliff House suspension bridge
from tho cliff to tho rock above near
est the shore, was overturned Sun
day afternoon at about -1 "o'clock
and of tho persons upon it twenty
were precipitated to tho beach below,
falling on the rocks and sand, receiv
ing painful, and in some cases, seri
ous injuries, but escaping drowning
because the tide was out. There arc
many accounts of tho occurrence.
All agree that the bridge was unsta
ble, but that the accident was brought
about immediately by the actions of
reckless boys, who swung the bridge
at both ends, rocking it dangerously,
no one interfering with them, and
that thereby a panic was caused.
According to tho version of II.
McCruin, one of the proprietors of
the Cliff House, he at 2 o'clock
requested Policeman J. Maloncy to
prevent the crowding of tho bridge.
A large number of persons were
gathered about tho structure, and
this led to the request, that an acci
dent might be prevented. But all the
policeman could do was to keep order,
the rush was so great.
Several persons were seriously
injured, but up to date there has
been no fatal result. S. F. Bul

The oldest tree in the world, so far
as any body knows, is the Bo tree
of the sacred city of Amarapoora, in
Burmah. It was planted 288 B. C,
and is therefore now 2170 years old.
Sir James Emmerson Tcnnet gives
reasons for believing that the tree is
really of this wonderful age, and re
fers to, historic documents in which it
is mentioned at different dates, as
182 A. D., 223 A. D., and so on to
the present day. "To it," says Sir
James, "kings have even dedicated
their dominions, in testimony of their
belief that it is a branch of the identi
cal fig tree under which Buddha re
clined at Urumelya when he under
went his apotheosis." Its leaves are
carried away, as streamers by pil
grims, but it is too sacred to touch
with a knife, and therefore they are
only gathered when they fall. The
kingoak in Windsor forest, England,
is 1000 years old. Scotsman.
A NEW COMPASS.
Capt. Magnagiivhas invented and
lately introduced in the Italian navy a
compass which is thus described by
the Jciccllers'' Circular :
"Its needle floats upon a pool of
water, tinctured with spirits of wine
to prevent freezing. The water is
contained in a glass vessel, with an
clastic vessel to allow its expansion
and contraction without breaking the
veseel. The needle consists of six
bundles of fine magnets, built up of
cast ribbon steel, and fixed on a cord.
It is inclosed in a hermetically sealed
case, which is delicately poised on a
brass pivot. The pivot has a sap
phire top and a jade point, all highly
polished to diminish friction. The
advantage of the compass is that the
resistance of the water being great to
rapid movement is comparatively
slight to slow ones, and hence the
ordinary movements of the needle
arc free enough, whereas those due
to sudden shocks from without arc
resisted, with a consequent staying
of the indications. Tried on board
the Duilio, it is found that tho dis
charge of a 100 ton gun or the motion
of the screw docs not affect tho read
ing of the compass. The effects of
the rolling and pitching of the vessel
arc guarded against by suspending
the floating case a very little above
its centre of gravity."
