SUNK ON LAKFIMiOHIQAN.
The Passenger Propeller Vernon Xost and
Grow of Twenty-two and Several Pas.
,4taLw$jXE,s^is., Oct 81.The large
pMsengeriaanelier Vernon has been lost
-On Lake jAIichiffan, north of Mauitowac,
Wis. The entire crew, consisting of twen
ty-twopirsonsv-is supposed to have per
ished. The steamship Superior, arriving
at this port Saturday evening, brought the
IfiriUnewanf thedisaater. That the wreck
ia.tbttt of the propeller Vernon, of the
Jforthern Michigan line, is established al
most beyond a doubt. She was due here
Saturday, and from the description ot frag
ments seen by- the -crew of the Superior
her owners have considered her identity
fully established. She had on board a
crew of twenty-two men, besides some
passengers, the exact number not being
known, and it IB supposed that all hands
perished. Captain Moran, of the Superior,
saw three or four rafts with men clinging
to them, also a small boat containing a
woman and three men. Though he made
an effort to rescue them, the high sea pre
vented the rendering of any assistance,
the Superior being herself disabled and
requiring the crew's best efforts. It was
about ten o'clock in the morning when tbe
first signs of the wreck in the shape of
cargo and furniture were seen.
About an hour later the rafts were sighted.
On some the occupants were almost gone,
while others signaled the Superior.
P. J. Klien, of Klein & Burk, who char
tered the Vernon to replace the Champlam,
burned early in the season, received the
first information of the disaster from a
Sentinel reporter. After hearing the ac
count, as reported by Captain Morgan, he
felt assured that it was the Vernon. He
did not know what passengers were on
board, and of the crew could only give the
following names: Captain George Thorp,
of Ogdensburg, N. Y., master, Captain
Collins, mate, who foimerly sailed the
schooner Golden Captain Higgins, second
mate, who sailed the baige Leland last
year F. W. Burk, clerk. I ewaa the oldest
son of Mr. Burk, one of the part owners of
the vessel, Charles Marcau,first engineer
Frank Hall, second engineer Martin
Beau, steward, Beau, porter, a brother of
Martin, both having been onthe Champlain
when she burned.
The Vernon was owned by A. Booth, of
Chicago, and was valued at|75,0JQ. She
was a year old and insured for 137,000. She
ran between Chicago and Mackinaw, and
picked up freight at the ports where she
touched, carrying it all at the risk of her
Captain Williams, of the schoaner Joseph
Paige, arrived Saturday night at nine
o'clock and reports seeing wreckage about
six miles east of Two Rivers point It was
evidently the wreckage of a passenger ves
sel, he said. One of his crew saw a corpse,
and apiece of a pilot-house with a man on
it was next seen The sea was running so
high that it lifted the Joseph Paige from
the davits, and it was impossible to getneas
enough to the man to pick him up.
A. Creamery Manager Skips Out leaving

WASHINGTON C. H., O., Oct. 81.Hun.
dreds of people in Ross, Highland and Fay
ette counties are lamenting the absence of
C. A. Turner, manager of the Greenfield
creamery, who swindled tbem out of vari
ous sums, aggregating fully $15,000 About
one year ago Tt rner came to this city from
Chicago, repre entmg Davis & Rankin, of
that city, mam acturers of creamery cans
and machinery. He soon organized a cream
ery and bought large quantities of cream
all over the three counties On the 1st of
each month bills for cream furnished were
presented, and on the 15th payment was
made for the cream fnrmshed the previous
month. By tb means six weeks' supply
could be obtained for nothing The cream
ery was run day and night October 12 he
notified his drivers to tell ins customers to
hold off until the 22d, when he would pay
for September and October together and
close out, as he was goin^ to Washington
to tun a creamery. This was satisfactory
to almost everyone. Those who objected
were paid. Turner sold his hogs, horses,
everything, and on the 22d departed for this
place. At noon he took the tram for
Cincinnati and has not been seen since In
vestigation of his affairs shows that Tur

NEW YORK, ~c 30.About ten o'clock
Friday night, a man dressf the uniform
of a district messenger, called at the resi
dence of Jame Wechsler, at 829 Washing
ton avenue, Brooklyn. A member of the
family received a package from him,
and the messei gerwent away. Mr. Wech
sler was not at home. Mr Wechsler took
the package in i the parlo and opened it.
When the cover was removed there was an
explosion. Pieces of wood nd metal struck
the lady the face and on the hands Her
little son who stood nearwan also hurt about
the face. Mrs. Wecbslei's mjuiies are
serious. The wounds are jagged, and there
are traces of acid about them. Blood
poisoning is feared. The ifernal machine
was so blown to pieces thit there is only
conjecture as to its character Deteptives

A bailor Either Falls or is Thrown From
the Brooklyn Bridge.
NEW YORK, Oct 30A Marine and a
sailor, both intoxicated, started to walk
across the Brooklyn bridge, earlv yes
terday morning. Officer Butt found
them on the promenade, near the
Brooklyn tower, and told them to hurry
on, as they were disposed stop and sleep.
They went on, and when Britt was re
lieved, soon after, he found the marine on
the land span, alone. He told the offi
cer that the sailor had climbed down
from the roadway and had been lost
sight of. A search was made and
the sailor's body was found in the
yard, at the foot of the tower. The body
was covered with blood and dust, and
nearly every bone broken. The marine
could not then be found and the dead man's
name was not learned.
Fatflock Bracelets for the Glrlar^
'Chain bracelets are very fashionable
now for gh-ls engaged to be married,"
said a jeWeler to a New Yosk Mail re
porter. Som have a padlock attach
ed. The lover places the chain about
the wrist whose pulses beat for him,
locks the daint symbol of bondage, and
wears the key on. his watch-chain. La
dies who wear their bonds lightly find
Iteasy toalip the^pretty evidenee of en
gaged affections far up the arm and
hide it beneath the sleeve when they
wish to please others than their Romeos.
The big conspicuous diamond ring is
not so easily hidden. Some of the chain
bracelets are of beaten gold and others
of nugget gold Some are made as a
simple chain, while in others the links
are beautifully engraved. Some have
diamonds and other precious stones set
in the links. We made a very novel
bracelet recently. It was an acrostic
ornament,'if one may use that term.
It was a chain with a padlock, but the
middle seven links were nuggets with
precious stones in each one. The first
letter of the stones read: D. E. A. R.-
S. T.,' and the stones were placed
in tbe order: Diamond, E, rald, Ame
thyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Topaz.
This bracelet cost $250 and was one of
the handsomest I have ever seen."

The Skeleton of a Woman Found. In a Bo
on a train.
ELVIRA, N. Y., Oct. 81.A box of bones,
whichproved upon examination to be the
skeleton of a woman, was found on a Le
high Valley tram Saturday. Conductor
Raymond says-he stopped his train just
outside of the city limits of Elmira and
that the box was not on board then. When
next he went over his train at Waverly he
found it, and he concludes from this that
the ghastly freight must have been pat on
board at Elmira. The bones are all dis
jointed, and the top of the skull is sawed
evenly off. The skeleton, though not much
decayed, has the appearance of having laid
in the earth for some time There are no
marks on the box which give any clue as to
where it came from.
