Saved from Death by Presence
There was witnessed, Yester
day altei noon, one of the most
remarkable instances pree
enee ot miud on the puct of a
lady we have ever heard of.
At about 5 o'clock, as i largo
number of picnickers .from
Badger's Park were wail ug lor
ihe train to take them o this
city, a young lady about twen
ty years ol age, escort eT, by a
young man ot about the same
age, started to walk acrfss the
tr?8tle(work opposite hf putk.
At this point there is a twtep
ing curve in the railroadtrack,
and when a train is approacn
ing it can not be seen till with
in a short distance or the sta
tion The lady and gentleman
had proceeded about thirty
yards ou the trestle work when
a gravel train came around the
cirve at a high rate of speed.
The engineer saw the situation,
and whistled down brakes, but
it was impossible to stop the
tnin in time to save them. The
pair started to run for the solid
ground, but it waft an impossi
bility to reach it beforo the
trdin approached, and the large
crowd held its breath, expect
ing every moment to see two
mangled forms. The lady, who
did not lose her presence of
mind tor a second, saw her dan
ger, and shouting to her com
panion, immediately dropped
through the trestle work and
caught hold ot one ol the sleep
ers with her hands just as the
huge engine passed over her
head, with scarcely twelve
inches between them. The man
:ollowed suit, and the two re
mained suspended till the long
train passed cn, when a num
ber of gentlemen rushed lor-
a rd and rescued them from
i heir perilous position, and
trotight tliem to terra firma-
The young lady had not re
ceived any bri!ije8,but had her
drna. and sacqne torn in sever
at places when dropping down
between the sleepers. Her
companion received several
bruises, and his wardrobe will
require ihe aid of a tailor. The
escape was indeed a marvel
ous one, and the brave, cool
headed young lady was the he

S. M. Penn, a merchant of
Bainbridge, Ross county, left
home a lew weeks ago to attend
the Exposition, and about thp
same time a young widow left
on the same errand. Fenn did
not return, and his securities
on certain notes got uneasy and
had him adjudged a bankrupt,
which proceeding is now under
way. His liabilities foot up in
the neigborhond ol 2 5,000.

Friday night the usual
quiet of our village was dis
turbed by a difficulty, at the
Bunz House, in which a young
man named Albert Uuest, lir
ing in Green township, cut
William Leonard and Daniel
Kelly preity severely.
The facts, as nearly as we
can ascertain them, as brought
out in the investigation before
the Mayor, were as lollows:
Young Guest and ope or two
oilier genllemeu cama to the
Fair accompanied by several
ladies, and . concluded to re
main over night, and went to
the Bunz House to 'engage
lodgings; Jhey could not get
rooms as they desired, owint?
to the crowded condition of
the hotel, but were given the
ladies sitting room, in which
Ihey could spend the night
Sometime during the evening,
while the parlies were quietly
enjoying themselves, a crowd
of fellows, among whom was
Leonard and Kelly, referred to
above, came into the room;
some of them appeared to be
quite intoxicated, and began
using coarse vulgar language,
and doing some very unbe.
coming things. Guest, who is
quite a young man, and very
quie', remonstrated with them,
telling them thai Ihe room be
longed to them and they did
not want to be Interfered with;
whereupon one of the intru
ders struck him in the fare,
and Ihe others joined in the
assault. Young Guest drew
his knife, which was a good
sized two-bladed pocket knife,
and began a kind ol well di
reeled promiscuous cutting.
He cut Dan. Kelly across the
back of the neck, a gash near
ly four inches lone; when
Leonard coming in his way, he
began on him. giving him one
gash on the throat, nearly sev
ering thejiiffular vein, another
on the nose, another in the
sMe, nnd another on the lee;
at this juncture of 'he affair
some one knocked Guest down
with a chair, and the fellows
thus released from Ihe fichr,
and seeing the Mood running
pretty freely, thoneht it about
time to get out, and left the
room. It is aleo (aid that
George Cline had a cut in his
coat on the hank. They ussist

bound him over to answer be

The First Kentucky Rifle.
Says the Franklin (Kv.) Pa
triot: In the Public Library
building at Louisville, Ky..
hangs on a pair ot rustic hooks
an old rifle and shot pouch.
Near by is a piece of beech
og, sawed a convenient length
to set on end in the relic case.
Posted up is an old letter, da
ted 1780. "Only these and
nothing more." The old pow- j
der horn is stopped up by a
plug of wood, which has been
drawn so often by its former
owner that its end is chewtd
of close. But what of tbatf
Reader, that stopple bears the
marks of the teeth of Daniel
Boone; that rifle was the first
gun of the battle on the "dark
and bloody ground." Though
its lock Is gone, its stock is
broken, and its barrel rusty,
that gun used to be the terror
of the aboriginal inhabitants
of Kentucky, who feared and
dreaded it, even when it and
its owner were temporarily in
their possession. A hundred
years ago that old hero, equip
ped by those trusty and dead
ly accouttements, led a charm
ed dramatic life, roaming over
the forest of which he was
lord, from the great "Conho
wa," aa he spelled it, to the
Mississippi. The beech log,
carved by his butcher knife,
which hangs by a leather string
from the old belt, bears the in
scription: ''Daniel Boone, 1774.

About the middle of last
month, Mr. Geo. H. Fisher ten
dered his resignation as Super
intendent of the Lawrence Iron
works of this place. The Di.
rectors met the next day and
promptly accepted it. It had
been known forsome time that

Treasurer, Mr. Keepers, but not
involving such indisputable
testimony as the company de.
sired, lo make the matter an is
sue with Mr. Flher. For a
long time past, entries had sn.
neared for money paid for scrap
ron which had never been r.-.
ceived, but for which the cish
account showed that pavmenfc
had been made. Fictitious
nmes, it seems, had been in.
f roduced in the entries fo give
hem a correct appearance.
The amounts of money so taken
were small but this thing had
'een runnin for so lon a HmA
that the to'al abstraction of
funis is currently reported to

housand dollars. The Law.

Mr. Fisher of this startling dis.
repancv, and npon the basis of
