As Christmas fell on Thursday this year
tbe following quotation from an ancient
manuscript In tbe British Museum may be
" II Xmas-rfay on Thursday be,
A windy wlnttrye shall see;
windy weather in each week.
And bard tempests, strong and thick;
ane summe shall be good and dry,
nm and bea shall mul tlpl y ;
Toat year Is good for lands to till.
Kings and princes shall die by skill;
If a child born that dav a ball be.
It ball happen right well tor he ;
Of deeds he shall be good and stable,
Wise of speesh and reasonable ;
Whoso that day goes thieving about.
He shall be punished without doubt;
And If sickness that day betide,
It shall quickly from thee glide. "

Soon after the caj had been disposed of and
alter the conrt had entered npou tbe trans
action of oth.T business tbe said defendant
came into court and demanded a trial. This
wss refused. He then tiled a motion for a
new trial On bearing this was denlel. It
appeared that his absence, at the time was
owing to a belief ou his part that prior cases,
appear! ng on the published list of causes as
signed for hearing, would consume a great
portion of tne alternoon and that he.also re
lied on the statement of an attorney In tbe

left here laat night for Kansas City, ran off

tendent Staffer, contawa all the information
of the accident yet received by the railroad
officials here :
Bekdaw, III, Dec. 26 The EanaasCity
night exprera was thrown Iroa tbe track
two miles west of here by a broken rail.
Tweniy-five persons were injured, most of
them slightly. A porter of the sleeper and
Col. L. P. Bond were killed The smoking
and refining car burned. Ths injured pas
sengers were takeo to Jacksonville and
placed in the hospital, there being 10
cared for. The accident occurred to the
train which left here at 9.50 last nieht for
Kansas City, and happened at 10.55 p. m.
ine train consisted ol a baggsge, smok
ing, chair car and deeper. There was but
one passenger in the sleeper. The chair
car was well filled and here was where the
injury waa done. As soen aa the car ran
on the stove upset and that end of the car
wai almost ina.antlya blsze. The Daseeneen.
many of whom were injured, rusbe to the
other end of the car to escaped, but finding'
tne door locked a panic aetzed tbem, and
for a few moments the scene was a terrible
one. Finally the door was broken and all
got out exceptirg Col Bond, who wss
burned with tbe car. The names of the
injured are not yet received here.
Chicago, Dec 26. J. C. McMillen, gn
eral manager of the Chicago A Alton rail
road, aaya that his information respecting
the accident at Berdan, seventy milea north
of St, Louis, is to the effect that the train
waa running about thirty miles an hour;
that after the engine and all the can except
the sleeper, which waa the Jist on 9 on the
train: had passed over safely, a rail ren
dered brittle by cold, snapped and threw
the aleeper from the track. This ditched
all the other cars, the engine alone remain
ine on the track.
The porter George Paine, of Chicago,
aad Col. Bond, of Auburn, Ilia, were killed.
The brakemaa, aJeeptag car conductor
aad a aether of paaeeagers were- knrty but
' Twneeeehaawere earned and tne whole
train badly wracked.
The fact that all the can except the last
peaard over safely goes to show that the
rail waa in perfect condition, aad waa only
snapped by the combined influence of ex
treme cold and aevere larring.
St. Lours, Dec 26. Charles Paine, the
porter of the sleeper, waa asleep in the
amokiag room of tbe car when the acci
dent occurred and waa so wedged in by the
breaking of the car .that he could not
escape and was burned.
A. G. Hovey, conductor of the sleeper,
aad was badly hurt about the body.
C A. Hook,aa attache of the road aad
the only peraoa occupying a berth in the
car, was slightly injured.
Mr. Barrett, conductor of the train, waa
also wounded, bat not aerioaely enough to
disable him -and he did noble service in
caring for the injured passengers.

The cheerful intelligence comes from
Washington that it waa in truth Ben But
ler who did it; that is, who furnished the
brains and from his private office engineered
the fraud in Maine. Benjamin ia, aa it
were, a questionable sort of fellow, and al
most no end to questionable performances
have been attributed to him. But, in this
instance, the rascality ia so pre-eminently
barefaced that common christian charity
would seem to require that the benefit of
the doubt be extended to him. From its
ear-marks, the engineering of auch a scheme
would seem more liable to be traced to a
neigborhood like that of Gramercy Park.
