Amongtbe many calamities which hare

the United States, cone comes with sack
crushing force or appeals more directly to
our sympathies than the terrible disaster
which overtook the Convent of the Sisters
cf the Immaculate Conception at Btllerille,
HL, on Saturday night tbe 5th inst., by
which twenty-three of the young lady stu
dents and five of the bisters, inc nding the
Mother Superior lost their lives. At a
quarter before eleven on the night in ques
tion, as nearly as can b ascertained, a fire
started in the basement, and before the in-
mates,wnn naa ior me mosi pan "urea haU tour o'clock, but will be resumed

all that could be done was to endeavor to

work, horrible to relate, but little success
was met with.

aroused from their slumbers, and in their
fricbt and desperation ran to the first point
which offered the 1 att passible means of
escape. But the building had already be-
come pretty thoroujily wrapped In flames, j
and there wa noth-ng left bat to jump.and ;
some of them accented the dreadful alterna
tive. Soon afterward there was a heavy
explolon and almost instantly the umcr
portion of the building was wrapped In a
dense vol ume of smoke. The crltion was

A fow of the girls, however, remained at
the windows, apparently determined to try
theordealot leaping for life- The flr.it to
try tho experiment was Miss Mary Camp
bell, of East Et. Louis. Sie threw Jiersrlf
out of the window, but caught bold of the
eating as she pased through. In tbe mean
time the brave firemen bad thrown a lad
der up againtt the building Immediately

that she would be saved. Ike lad
der unfortunately proved too short, and
she hung by ber bands, her feet almost
reaching iU top. Suddenly she released
ber grasp of the windcw-sill, and falling
down struck the laddsr about iour feet lrnm

pavemrnt below. She was hurriedly
Ecked up and borne off to the office of the

saved from the top of tbe veranda of the
second floor. They had evidently lfeaped
out of a window above and in striking the
roof were stunned. Being fn their night
clothes they were very odd, but having
been rescued were borne off to a place of
safety and through restoratives wero soon
resuscitated. To Mr. John Steinacher and
George W. Merker belongs tho credit of
saving them. They saw them in their per
ilous position and procuring a ladder res
cued them.
At this time the flames were fait envel
oping the builJing. All the engine had
been placed in position and were fighting
the fire with an energy and determinatiun
that refircted the h'ghest praise upon tue
firemen. But notwithstanding their super
human efforts, the inside of the building
began to surrender to tbe flames, and tlie
fire, having originated In the basement in
the west end. all tho floors in that depart

efforts to stop the flames aad save the
budding were futile, and they turned their
attention to saving the wall. The walls on
the west were the first to fall, and as they
went down they carried with tbem the tim

they were sua seated in tae first explosion

.Tooo-vro, Ost., Jan.:.
One ot the mist frightful railway acci
dents that ever occurred in Canada took
place this morning-at five minutes to sev
ea. About fifteen minutes previous a su
burban train consisting of a dummy engine
and two cars oa the Great Western division
of the Grand Trunk left Union Station,
having abjard about sixty passengers,
chiefly employes of tha Bolt and Iron
AVcrks at Uumber, residing in th? city, who
were going to their work. Each was hap
pier than tho o:hcr, and, although the
weather was severely cold, a gale blowing
the snow against the car windows, the
merry crowd did not heed P s they told
how they spnt Sow Tear.
On rounding a sharp curve just before
taichingthe Bolt Works tha engineer saw
a freight train coming thundering down
the grade toward him. lie reversed the
engine, blew a warning and with tha fire
man jumped for his life. Tho conductor
Leinl tbe warning, and shouting "Jump,
boys, for your lir?,n sprang into the saow.
In a second morn there was a terrific crash.
The engine ot the freight train knocked the
boilers of the dummy clear through the
first car, crushing tho unfortunate passen
gers in every direction, and pinning many
to the floor. The hnpstus was so great the
engine actually mounted the truck of the
dummy,which kep the rails, aad remained
on a balance.
Tbe engineer of the freight train, when
be saw a collision was Inevitable, sprang
from the engine, but Thomas, the fireman,
was killed instantly.
To add to' the horror of the scene, the
boiler of the dummy exploded and tbe
strain and boiling water caused the death
snd terrible Injuries to the mangled and
bleeding men. Then tbe fire, as if mad
dened at other age-ciet clutching so many
victims, broke uut and completed tha sick
ening work, ot destruction. Shrieks,
, groans and heartrending cries for help
iroin ice agontzeu suaerersrent tne air.
Several poor fellows, suffering untold
agonies, with limbs and bodies burnt to a
cri-p. piteouIy implored those near them
to p-jur water upon thrir scalded limbs or
put an end to their sufferings. Strong
men looked on appalled and many an eye
was dim with tears. With every possible
pbae of disfigurement to be seen, limbs
cut, bruised, mangled, half eaten away by
fire, swollen to enormous size by steam and
water, no possible horror was left to tbe
imagination. So mere awful scene could
be witnessed.
The first pasenger car was a terrible
wreck and niveral hours elapsed before
the poor fellows buried beneath tbe debris
! were extricated. A relief party of thirty
I or forty men were soon on uie scene and at
occj set at work slowly and tenderly to
rerce the sufferers, tni about ten o'clock
i a car-load of drad and injured was on the
. war to the cl'y.1
On arriving at the Union station an am-
bulani-f , station wagon and several cabs
auf! 'busses were in waiting. A large crowd
had gathered, and as one after another of
the dead and woundtd were carried from
tho car to the conveyances many turned
ick at th sigh- Tbe wounded men bore
their sufferings with fortitude and pa
tience, a few groans being the only indica
tion of their intense agony.
Tbe s-csne at the tnoigue beggars descrip
tion. There were fifteen bodies laid side
br kide in rows. Mothers, sisters, fathers
and brothers were to be seen passing from
liody to body, and with trembling bands '
lifting the coverlet and gazing on the faces ,
of the dead. Sow and then aery of anguish j
would tell too plainly of tho discovery ot '
somo dear one cornea on in tne crime ot
manhood.
At tbe hospital on arrival of the wound

Cotton, accompanied by hfe son, is mak
ing his way to Florida all fee way front
New Hampshire, through the cottatrj
in a buggy. For many years past hi
has spent his winters in Florida, bat uff"
to this winter Las always gone by raiL.
His scheme of making; the trip ia a
bngsy was adopted upoa the adviee oC
physicians, who thought the overiaad
trip would do him good. besieWs giviag
him a fine acquaintance with tae coun
try. Mr. CoUoa and his sots, pot ottl
from New Hampshire axrt thrift
month ago. aad. found that tke trip
fully came up to the reroHtmeaoataoiis
until they passed Charlotte aad eacoan
tered Steel Creek; when a waity start
ling adventure befell them.
The creek was greatly swoltea by the
late rains aad was far out of its betaks.
Mr. Cotton had crossed strewasrtwvx
that width in Florida, and, s&apaeiasr.bc"'
could do it here the same tray, kedroTt
into the swollen waters. He had drfv- L
en in but a short distaBSC when he dis
covercd his mistake, but too latv fffcer
he could ses nothing but the head ot
himself, soa and horse above tae water
he realized that trouble cacoajpasaec
him round about. The carreat af. tin
stream bore them swiftly aieaff, aad
men, horse and buggy tnuekly -partocl
company. Mr. Cottoa caaght the
branches of a tree and drew hisaseu ant
of the water. In a tree a little below
him he suw that bis soa had s Ted hicav
elf in like manner. Tho hors at
buggy had disappeared freat Mt- U
was growing late ia the cvatsiajr. aatf
Mr. Cotton and his sot bejraa to sfcoal
for help and kept ii. up until a coople ot
farm Lands, attracted by their cries;
came upon the scene. Alter coasidera
ble maneuvering the father aad son
were rescued from tha trees ad eon,
ducted to the rcsEdeace of ahosartabk

Mr- Cotton losliis horse, and boggy,
besides two (ranks and a valise con
taining his valuable;. One of th
trunks was afterward foend about a
mile below the scene. His valuables;
were kept in a rough, unsnapkios
looking valise, aad were carried in tfce
foot of the fuggy. It is haniiy pos-s
sible that tbe vabse will ever be fottwu '
Mr. Cotton spent two days at the bouse'
of his newly-found -friend, aad the,
setting a new rig; proceeded on. hit
journey, leaving instructions 'or tie
forwarding of his remaiaiag goo

between Steel Creek and Florida, btK
if any of them arc swollen, when Xr.
Cottoa drives up to the bank he will
be seen going through the eye of. a
needle rather than through the water.

I am no educationalist, and
accused of speaking about wr,Tt I aa
ignorant of if I suggest that too bwbj
things are taught at the same time, aac
too much time is taken for the whole
Crocess. Think of an uadeTeJoped
rain getting up book-k&owledfe oc
ten different subjects all the same day,
and this going on day after day kit
years. It is altgether contrary to tin
principles of a sound psychology o fat
agine that any sort of mental" process,
worthy of tbe name of thiakiar, cm
take place in that brain while that it
going on. The natural tendency of a
coed brain . t that age to be iaqaki
tive and receptive ts glutted to more
than satiety. The natural process of
building up" a fabric of mental complete
ness by having each new fact and ob
servation looked at in different ways,
and having it 'suggest other facta and
idea., and' they settle down as a part o)
the regular furn'tnre of the mind, car
not possibly go on where new facts an
shoveled in by the hundred day by day;
The effect of Una is bad on boys,
but is worse on g'ris, becaase
it is more alien to their mental
constitution. The tOect on them ol
this unnatural process is to chaaat the
nervous powcrat the t'rae, and to leave
the brain afterward filled with aeele
things that are soon forgotten aad pase
away; as Goethe said about professton
almcn: they labor under a great disad
vantage in not being allowed to fceig
norant of what is to them useless. Xm
vital energies and nervous power thai
bad thus been thrown away should have
roue toward a feminine equipment of a
healthy, well devcV)ped body. mind
built up and stored with knowledge that

the wants of its future life, affection
not attenuated by scholastic routine,
and a cheerfulness that is only compat
ible with jrooil health. The cramming
np of the dry facts of those many sub
jects is in most cases a weariness and
pain, while the intell'gent study of one
