AFTER TWO HOXTHS
A Dog That Was Imprisoned by llie Flood la
rsrxcui. txugrim to tdx stsrA.Tca.1
Wiixiamspobt, August 3. A wonder
ful story ot the recent flood is related by a
lumberman. The other day a gang of men
were at work on Burrows' Island removing
the logs and boards. As they cleared away
the debris they came upon a pile of logs in
the shape of a cone at least a dozen feet
high. The logs were in such a symmetrical
shape that it looked as though they were
put together by human hands.' The cone
was hollow, and as the men proceeded with
their work of demolition they detected a
smell which suggested that there was a dead
animal close at hand. Log after log was re
moved, when, to their amazement, they be
held a mastiff dog. The animal wagged his
tall and whined when he saw the men, and
seemed gladdened at the prospect of being
liberated from his prison.
In another portion of the cone-shaped
cell was the carcass of a cow. By some
freak of the rushing waters the dog and
cow were caught in this pen on June 2, the
cow being crushed in the jam
of logs. The canine was sleek
and fat when liberated and looked
none the worse for his two months' im
prisonment. He has become greatly at
tached to the men on the island and oc
casionally takes a meal on the dead cow.
Where the animal came from is not known,
and there will be no special effort made to
ascertain its former owner.

A Married Woman Spirited Away From
Her llnsband'a Side.
isricuLL tiligkah to the disfatcb.1
Heading, August 3. A missing woman
and the arrest of her father as her
abductor to-day has created a big
sensation in this vicinity. About a
week ago Mrs. Isaac Miller, residing
near Virginsville, this county, attended a
funeral in the neighborhood. Her father,
Samuel D. Kohler, who is proprietor
of a natural curiosity known as the
Crystal Cave, and one of the best
known citizens of Berks county,
also attended. After the funeral
Mrs. Miller disappeared, and since then she
has not been seen. The husband has em-
'ployed detectives, and the country for miles
around has Deen scoured, bnt with no suc
cess. Streams have been dragged and of
ficials in neighboring cities telegraphed to.
Mr. Miller obtained some evidence
against his father-in-law, and to-day Kohler
was arrested and gave bail to answer the
charge of abdnction. He says that he
knows where his daughter is, but re
fuses to disclose her whereabouts.
Mrs. Miller is 27 years of
age.and has been married several years. She
possesses about $8,000 in her own namu. and
it is claimed that there is the bone of con
tention. Mrs. Miller has always resided
with her husband, and there is much specu
lation as to where the father has her hidden.

BEGBETTINO THOMPSON'S ABSENCE.
A dispatch from Johnstown says:
It was with regret that Johnstown people
saw .Treasurer Thompson leave this morn
ing. The regret was caused by the an
nouncement that he would not be here again
until the latter part of next week, owing to
pressing business engagements at home. He
has leit an efficient man in his place, how
ever, butjohnstowners have learned to look
to him with more confidence than any other
person in authority, and they would be glad
to see him stay.
However, the people were assured the
work would be pushed right along, and if it
kept up at the same pace as it has been dur
ing the past three days the 5500,000 appro
priated will all be in the hands of the peo
ple by the end of the week. Considerable
trouble was experienced to-day with
ine account ot some railroaders who were
washed out. They had sworn to their claims,
and Mr. J. K. Russell, road foreman of en
gines on the Pennsylvania Bailroad, pre
sented them for payment. In the meantime
eeveral of the men had lilted their own
money, and there was considerable trouble
to cet things adjusted.
Notwithstanding the delay caused by
these matters, 37,300 was paid out during
the day. Secretary Kremer was busy in
other parts of the town, and only spent a
short time in the office here. He says be is
in the 18 counties in the eastern part of the
State, and consequently is very hard
worked. This was payday with the Cam
bria Iron Works, as well as among the
workmen for Mr. Hughes and Contractor
McLean, and there is now plenty of money
incircnlation. The merchants arereapiegthe
benefit of the free distribution of money that
is going on and they are beginning to look
much more cheerful. Mr. G. W. Moss, one
of the leading grocers in the town, Bays he
did inllv as much business in July as he
ordinarily did in two months, and so it is in
all lines of trade.
The districts paid off were South Fork,
Mineral Point, Conemaugh and Woodvale,
where there are no stores of any account,
and the money was largely expended iu lay
ing in needed supplies. The statement
spread abroad that the people everywhere
had abused their opportunities in getting a
large supply of clothing from commission
ers, was refuted clearly by the action of
these people to-day.
Nearljr every one after getting their
money visited a clothing store and laid in a
supply of wearing apparel, and the clothiers
all did a rushing business Jrom morning till
The grumblers have been silenced some

Ebie, August 3. Erie to-day had a chap
ter of horrors. The day opened with a ter
rific fly wheel explosion in the Watson
Paper Mills. The governor refused to act
and the fly wheel burst. The explosion was
terrific The engine house was demolished
and the flying fragments carried ruir iu all
direetions. Engineer Samuel Fuller, ob
serving something wrong, rushed into the
wreck to shut off the steam and was so badly
mutilated that he will die. Joseph Proeski
was struck with a piece of the wheel and
had a part of his scalp carried away. His
recovery Is donbtful.
"William Bates, son of "W. B. Bates, fore
man ot the ship carpenters at the Anchor
Line dock, suicided to-day. He had been
in ill health, but the generally accepted
theory of the causes which led to his suicide
was that his affianced would not consent to
a speedy marriage. Young Bates called on
his affianced, Miss Clara Schlandecker. last
evening, and renewed his importunities for
an early marriage. The young lady coun
seled delay until they could have a home
furnished. Prior to sending the fatal ball
through his brain the young man wrote a
letter to the young lady and another to his
mother, imploring their forgiveness. Death
was instantaneous. The suicide belonged to
a good family, and was 22 years of age.
FIRE AT ZAKESTILLE

rsrECUi. txlegudi to tux dispatch, j
Zanesville, August 3. At 8 o'clock
this evening the fire department was called
to C. Stolzesbacks & Sons' bakery and
cracker factory, the largest institution of
the kind in the city. For a time it was
thought that the whole blocK, which is the
most important in the city, containing
the Court House, jail, poitoffice and
important stores, would be consumed
and the contents were partially removed
from the postoffice. The fire was, however,
confined to two buildings. It originated in
a three-story building filled with ovens and
machinery and spread rapidly to a new
four-story building which had just been
completed and filled with new machinery
and had been running but a week. The loss
will be about $30,000 with 515,000 insurance.
Michael Schlofman, an employe, was
fatally burned about the back and breast.
He was in the new building when the fire
broke out, and rushed into the old building.
He encountered a locked door, and the fire
had cut off retreat.
Mrs. Elisha Pratt, of Lambertville, N.
J., has had done in wax a representation of
the last meal taken by her husband. It is
true to nature in size and color, and the
original is what gave the deacon the cholera
morbus that hurried him to the tomb. The
widow takes melancholy pleasure in it, amd
considers it a fitting and touching memorial.
Teenton, August 3. The story of the
queerest tribute to the dead on record comes
from Lambertville, in Hunterdon county.
Near that town lives Mrs. Ellsha Pratt,
widow of Beacon Pratt, who was famous as
a farmer, a genial soul and an ardent Meth
odist. He was particularly fond ot tickling
his appetite and was deemed considerable of
an epicure. His wife was an excellent cook
and her dinners were rare exhibitions of
culinary skill tor a rural neighborhood.
The deacon enjoyed nothing better than a
house full of clergymen around a table
laden with tempting victuals. And Mrs.
Pratt, who doted on the deacon, was in her
element when preparing such a feast and
helping entertain such goodly guests.
About a year ago a number of ministers
were en their way to the campmeetmg at
Ocean Grove. There were just a dozen of
them. Deacon Pratt had them all stop over
night at his farm house, and gave them a
rousing dinner early in the evening. It
was a dinner modeled on the New England
plan, as Pratt came from Vermont and so
did his wife. There was everything con
ceivable to eat and plenty of reasonably
hard cider to drink.
too much fob the deacon.
The deacon was in the best of humor and
partook even more heartily than usual of
the food. His wife, accustomed as she was
to her husband's large appetite, was aston
ished at the amount he consnmed and made '
a mental inventory of the various articles
and the amount of each that he swallowed.
The next alternoon Deacon Elisha Pratt
died of cholera morbus. The physician said
the dinner knocked him out. The funeral
was the largest the neighborhood ever
knew. Eight of the 12 clergymen present at
the dinner acted as pallbearers, and the
other four officiated at the church and by
The widow was inconsolable for awhile
and talked abont the tribute she proposed
having prepared in memory of her husband.
Everybody supposed she was going to erect
a handsome monument and the makers of
tombstones sent iu bids. But they were all
mistaken. Mrs. Pratt had in view the most
remarkable and yet suggestive of memorial
She had the work done quietly in Phila
delphia and it required some weeks to finish
"When it arrived at the farm and some of
the widow's intimate friends were invited to
call and see the tribute they were at first
astounded and then shocked, and finally
thev felt a disposition to laugh that was con
trolled with difficulty. On the table in the
parlor stood a large glass case. On top of
the case was a small arch, made of solid
silver. Surmounting the arch was tne fig
ure, in silver, of an angel blowinga trumpet.
Inside the arch and suspended from its cen
ter was a tablet ot white-marble, on which
were inscribed the following words in deep,
This Is "What the Beacon Died Of."
But it was underneath the glass case that
THE GBXAT SURPEISE
awaited the spectators. There on plates,
arranged in the order they were served, were
exact duplicates in wax, and some in glace
shape, of the various articles of food the
deacon had eaten at the dinner the evening
before he died, and also exact duplicates in
quantity and size of the amounts he had
consumed. There was a large plate of soup,
a big slice of meat, heaping side dishes full
of vegetables, three cucumbers, huge slices
of pie, a quarter of a watermelon, two plates
of ice cream, a small cup of coffee and three
goblets of cider. They were perfect pieces
of work in wax, as well as perfect represen
tations of what had passed down the dea
con'js throat at the dinner. The whole thing
had cost several hundred dollars.
The neighbors naturally ridiculed the
tribute at first, but they all respected the
widow, and when they fonnd that she was
really in earnest in her grief and in her re
gard for the wax memorial, they restrained
their mirth and said little about it outside.
Many of them thought the sudden loss had
unhinged Mrs. Pratt's mind somewhat.
That is why it is only after the lapse of a
year that the report of the astonishing
tribute has leaked out.

Erie. Pa., August 3. The United States
Government is making some experiments
here with dredging machinery, which are
being watched with more than ordinary in
terest The engineer in charge of this port
is furnished with a sand pump
for .dredging purposes and it is known
as a sand sucker and is stationed upon
the deck of a leased steamer, the Transfer.
This has always been a hobby of Major F.
A. Mahan, the superintendent of this dis
trict. He has advocated for some time the
theory that it was more expeditious and
more economical to pump the sand than to
dredge it by.the old process.
Before securing all the machinery
necessary for such work the officials in
charge fitted up the leased boat for a
test of the Major s plans. The tests thus far
have beeen pronounced quite satisfactory.
The dredge has raised 75 cubic yards of
sand an hour, an amount which is just
about half of the capacity of the machinery.
