WEDNESDAY EVENING, SEPTEM BEE 14.
The Wacjes of Sin.?Seven ysars ago by
downright embezzlement the large shoe
firm of John Mahon & Sods, of Salem, Mass.,
faile?, swamping several other large con?
cerns. The sons of John Mahon, John
Franci3 and Edward, were the responsible
parties, and taking nearly a hundred thou?
sand each, skipped to Canada. The dis?
grace killed their father. To the surprise of
the autborities, John Mabon, sick, penniless
and in rags, staggered into the police head?
quarters yesterday and gave himself np. He
had walked all the way from New York to
do so. Extravagant dissipation in Montreal
and Paris brought him to beggary, and, feel?
ing his days numbered, he wanted to come
back home, even if the penitentiary awaited
him. Having no money in New York, he
set out for Salem on foot. The journey took
him two weeks, because of his weak con?
dition. His food he begged from door to
Over a Steep Embankment.?A wreck
occurred on the Pesnsboro' and Harrisville
narrow-guage railroad, near Parkersburg.W.
Va., Monday night. The train, consisting
of one pussenger coach and several freight
cars, was derailed by the falling of a brake
shaft under the wheels w hen the train was
going down a steep grade at a rapid speed.
The passenger car was tbrown down an em?
bankment. Two passengers. L. P. Wilson
and Mrs. Windsor, were fatally injured, and
Bix others bruised and cut.
Especially to Women.
"Sweet is revenge, especially to women,"
said the gifted, but naughty, Lord Byron.
Surely he was in bad humor when he wrote
such words. But there are complaints that
only women sutler, that are carrying num?
bers of them down to early graves. There
is hope for tbose wbo suffer, no matter
how sorely, or severely, in J>r. R. V.
Pierce's "Favorite Prescription." Safe in
its action it is a blessing, especially to women
and to men, too, for when women suffer the
household is askew.
