of note occurred until noon of
Monday, the 31, when, the coal
being short, Captain William
resolved to put into Halifax for
a supply. The Capuin- d
Mr. IJrady had Ihe night watch
up to midniht, when 'they
were relieved by the chief and
fourth officers. At that time
they judged that the Sambro

miles The sea was rough and
the night dark. The chief and
fourth officers having taken
charge, Brady went below and
turned into his berth. The
Captain at the same time went
to his room to lie down.
What occurred between mid
night and two o'clock, the time
ot the disaster, Brady can not
tell, as be was sleeping. He
was awaked and thrown out of
his bunk by the shock when
Ihe steamer struck. She was
struck heavily three or lour
times. Brady ran up to Ihe
deck and found it full -f pas

Just then the s'eamer fell ovei

living freight was carried down
with the steamer, and all in it
were drowned except Brady.
The hull of the steamer became
almost totally submerged, and
onlv the bow and masts re
mained above water. The
greater part of the passengers
were in their rooms below at
the time and were immediately
drowned. Indeed, so soon at-
ter Ihe striliing did the steamer
sink that many of the passen

peacefully in blissful ignorance
of all that was going on around

HOW TO PUT ON A CORSET
An Interesting Case. Keported by the San
Francisco Chronicle.
At this juncture the coroner
desired to show to the jury the
Cotirie taken by the ball, and
for this purpose produced the
corset worn by Mrs,Burkhart a
the time or the tragedy. -"ou
see," laid he and here he
drew the corset around his
waist with (he laces in front!
"the ball must have gone in
here from behind. No, that
can't be, either, for the doctor
says the ball went in front.
Confound it, I've got it on
wrong. Ahl this way." (Here
the coroner put u rtJt on
upside down) "No w, you see,"
pointing to the hole In the gar
ment, which rested directly
over his blip "the ball must
have gone In here. No, that
ean't be either, lor"
Here Mr. Mather, the hand
somest man on the jury, broke
n. "Doctor Stillman," said he
"you've got that corset on
wrong." Here Dr. Stillman
brished like a puppy. --Well,",
said he, "I've been married
ice, and ought to know how
to rig a corset." "Yes," si id
Mr. Mather, but you don't. You
bad it right in the first place
he s'nng goes in front and
the ladies clasp them together
in (he back. Don't I know? I
think I ought to: I've been
married. If you doubt it, look
here'(pointirg to the fullness
n the top.) How do you sup
pose that's to be filled up unless
you put it on ait suggest?''
That," said Dr. Stillman, why
hat goes over the hips " -No,
don't," said Mr. Mather; "that
fullnes goes somewhere else
this way,? and here Mr. Mather
indicated wliere "he thought
the fullness ouirht to go.
At this a pale faced young
man wiih a voice like a robin,
nd a note book on his arm,
said he thought the ladies ah.
ways clasped their corsets on
beside. The pale faced young
man was laughed to scorn, and
one of them intimated that he
e thought the young man not
half so green about women's
ress as he appeared. The
young mnn was a reporter, and
is therefore exceedingly
probaMe that his knowledge
was fully as limited as was ap
parent from his suggestion, and
he jurymen to the contrary
notwithstanding.
Here another jnrvman din-
covered thfct Dr. Stilfmanhad
the corset on bottom side op.
Doctor," snid he, "pot it on the
other wav."
Then the doctor put in on In
reverse order, with the laces in
Iront. This brought the lmllet
holes directly over the tails of
his coat,
I don't Ihinlr, said Mr Math
er, "that the bullet went in
there. Doctor"
"No. I don't thing it did,"1 was
the reply "Confound it, it's
mighty funny, six married men
this room and not one that
knows how to pnt on a woman's
corset."
Here the Chroniclo reporfe;,
who had several sisters, and al
ways keeps his eyes open, ad
vanced and convinced DriSiil
manand Mr Mather after much
argument, that the laces of a
corset go behind, and that the
garment is clasped in front.
After this explanation the
course of the bullet wa readily
traced, and found to bear out
the explanation afforded by the
two physicians.

EI ail man's school who wrote
the composition on "The Pin,"
subject chosen by his teach

teacher exacted but two sen
tences. After considerable
effort the little hero produced
the following: "Pins are very
useful. They have saved ihe
lives of a great many men, wo
men and children in fact

his astonished teacher aa to
the manner in whrch the fives
were saved through the instru
