THOUSANDS ATTACKED HIM
They Swarmed on His Baclt and
Shoulders Lllio Bees Dashed
Against His Face or Clung
Screeching to His Hair or Beard.
How He Escaped.
Lancaster, Ky., April 10. Louis Lan
dram, editor of the Central Record, while
hunting on Burdett's Knobs, seven miles
north of Lancaster, recently walked up a
deep gulch In search of (shelter from a
heavy raiu. He had proceeded only a short
distance, when he noticed at the foot of
the cliff a wide crevasse, partly hidden by
vines antl shrubbery. Approaching and en
tering this, ae was gradually surprised on
discovering it to be the outlet or a cavern.
Thecutrauce was wludlngandnatrow.aiid
on cither side were steep and craggy walls.
The roof asceaded at a sharp angle into
i obbcurjty. ,
Some thirty feet from the entrance, ly
ing obliquely on a high projecting ledge,
there was a monster block of granite, ob
long in general outline and weighing hun
dreds of tous, its huge crest upreared Into
the cave's gloomy dome. Landram regard
ed tills ponderous rock in wonder. It had
undoubtedly been dislodged from above by
a seismic shock, aud had it fallen into the
corridor, iustead of on the ledge, it would
have choked it completely.
More than half of its weight seemed now
suspended over the passage. A slight shock
or the piessureof a finger would apparently
have caused it to plunge Into the chasm.
It was, indeed, one of the death traps of
nature, grim aud sinister, sometimes teen
in subterranean chambers or upon preci
pices. Beyond it there were evidences of
a large chamber.
The excitement found in penetrating
the unexplored something which always
exerts a fascinating influence upon dar
ing spirits allured the hunter. Re ad
vanced boldly towards the interior, but
when two fiery eyeballs were btiddcnly
turned upon him from a dark coiner he
came to an immediate halt. At the same
instant his dog, which had followed at
his heels, uttered a dismal howl and made
a speedy exit fioin the cavern. Landram
threw up his gun and discharged both
barrels simultaneously, bat lie never knew
what the animal was, or whatbecamuof it,
for the infernal din that bellowed through
the cavern was instantly followed by an
awful crash, dense volumes of dust and
sudden darkness, aud he was thrown vio
lently forward on his face and almost
buried beneath masses of falling sand
For a moment he was considerably
stunned, but he soon oxtncated himself
and scrambled to Ids feet. Then a cold
horror fell upon him, for he saw tint
the great rook, shaken from its moor
ings,' by the explosion, had plunged into
the passage behind him. Its towering
and colossal form, together with great
quanties of earth and fragments of
stone, was wedged tightly in the corri
dor, constituting a mighty barrier that
arose black and frightful between him
self and libel ty.
He baw no way of escape. No my of
light pierced the gloom. Moreover, a vabt
army of bats, disturbed by the detonation
and shitting sand, began to swarm thickly
in the passage. They were of remarkable
size and fierceness. These creatures be
gan to alight on bib person, and he was
forced to beat them off with a swift and
vigorous movement of his arms. They
swept forward in flocks as if to escape,
and that quarter of the cave was alive
Confused and only partially aroused
from the torpor of hibernation, thousands
precipitated themselves against the rocks
and fell to the floor, where they continued
to move awkwardly about. They collected
in seething heaps on every rock and ledge;
the air was noisy with swishing wings.
They swarmed on Landram's back and
shoulders like bees. They dashed against
his face or clung screeching to his hair
or beard. This multitude of busy wings
stirred and whirled about in biiffocatiug
billows the dry, penetrating dust or cen
turies. Threatened witb suffocation, he increased
the activity of his movements to a fierce
impetuosity, each moment hurling hun
dreds or the squeaking creatures upon the
earth and trampling them under foot. He
was without resource or shelter in the
midst of a species of horrible tempest.
That a man could pieserve his pres
ence of mind in a situation of this soit
Is wonderful, but that Landram did sec
is shown by a plan which occurred to
him and which he immediately pro
ceeded to execute. Shaking himself free
of his tormentors for a moment, he doffed
his hunting coat and pouied over it the
stimulant and combustive contents of a
quart bottle that he drew from his hip
pocket. He ignited it with a match, and
as the flames leaped fiercely up he began
to whirl it, a circle of roaiing flame and
smoke above bis head.
The effect was magical. The flame
and pungent fun.es were intolerable, and
every bat that could use his wings began
a precipitate flight to other quarters.
And in that spectral light the hunter
was for the moment transformed into
something inhuman, demoniacal. The cav
ern rang with his honiblc outcries. The
bound of bursting shells came from the
pockets of his burning coat.
Rushing from side to bide of the cave,
his hair tumbled over his forehead in
tangled masses, and his face dlstoited,
he whirled the blazing torch hither and
thither, scorching great numbers of the
creatures and burning many alive, antil
the horrid host had been driven back Into
the recesses of the cavern. Thus by a
drastic method did he quickly rid himself
of the smiting plague.
The exertion had fatigued him. His
face streamed with perspiration. Yet he
immediately began to consider the pos
sibilities of escape from his captivity.
It any avenue of escape over the lofty
summit of the boulder still existed,
which was doubtful, it would have been
madness to try to reach it in the reign
ing darkness, either by attempting to
scale the barrier itself, or by clambering
up the steepand Jagged walls of the cavern.
It remained to be seen, therefore,
whether there was any vulnerable point
about the opposing mass. By the light
of an uncertain blaze, that still played
over a remnant or his burning coat, lie
picked up his gun and plunged the bar
rels into the earth and sand at one side
or the giant rock. The debris yielded little
by little to his attack.
With the energy of a man entombed
alive, and desperate with desire for lib
erty, ne aug out quanuues ol umui uuu
pried up fragments or stone. nope
again kindled in his bosom, and at the
expiration of about seven hours, during
which prodigious labors were performed,
he succeeded in making an opening around
the barrier large enough to admit his Iwdjv
Through this hole he at last squeezed
himself. In his hand he held tlio battered
and twisted barrels of a gun, and just as
the moon arose behind the timber of the
opposite cliff, he passed out haggard and
1 grimy into the night.
He World of Business.
"Wall Street Yesterday.
New York, April 10. The stock market
has been irregular this week. Sugar re
fining, the Gas stocks and Western "Union
have advanced while the railway list,
particularly the shares of the anthracite
coal canying roads, is in the main lower
than it was last Saturday. The decline in
railway 6locks ib the more bigulficunt
because of the extensive covering of
shorts, caused by the sharp advance in
a number of the so-called industrial shares.
Speculative conditions have been unusually
prominent in shaping the course o"f prices
on the exchange this week. Stocks have
advanced whenever there lias been a de
mand for them to close short contracts, and
following the cessation of a demand for
them from that quarter they have, as a
rule, declined. The limited character cf the
dealings Is shown by the fnct that transac
tions in stocks have averaged less than
$150,000 a day, and those in bonds less
than $1,000,000, par value, per day.
The market today was influenced largely
by foreign advices indicative of a collis
ion between Turkey and Greece. European
markets were unsettled and the appre
hension aroused there Avns reflected here.
The majority of the list sustained frac
tional net losses. The weekly statement
of averages or the associated banks shows
the heavy withdrawals of lawful money
Inst week to pay duties. It is Interesting
to "note that those payments have been
made without increasing the loans. From
a stock exchange point of view, the most
importantoccurrences this week have been
the collapse of several discretionary blind
pool concerns. The exposure of the
character of the?c concerns is likely to
precipitate the collapse of those that re
main, for those who have any money to
their credit in any one of them are likely
to withdraw It, or attempt to do so, be
fore the demands of their rcllow victims
make it impossible to do so.

Of Mr. Abraham "White, new 6tock
Mr. White is or the opinion that a man
doesn't need any special experience to
bucceed m Wall street. What he does
think necessary is pluck, talent, genius. If
he has a genius for speculation he can
come iu with a mousetrap, like Jay Gould,
and go out with several million dollais
caught therein. Mr. White started in, not
with a mousetrap, exactly, but 44 cents
worth of postage stamps, lie bid for
Government bonds to the amount or $1,
000,000, in which transaction Mrs. White
shared to the extent or $300,000; and he
won. This is not a new story now, but only
a Tew days ago Mr. White cleared up
$60,000 on another bid of the same nature,
on Brooklyn bonds
Mr. White is thiity-two years old, and
a Texan by birth. He has been specu
lating foi fully half his life, and operated
in cotton, in the days of his tender youth,
with a liveliness that surprised some of
the veterans. About ten years ago he
married a Boston girl, and since that time
has made more money than he ever did
before. Mrs. White has made for herself
$40,000 by various investments, since their
lucky boud deal, though she does not make
any pretensions to operating on the scale
that her husband does.
Mr. White is a plunger, and lie would
rather risk all that he has in a big deal
than to take a sure thing with small
profits. That i s why he is a millionaire
today; and that is why he ib a stock
broker, and more than all that for other
men arc millionaires and stock brokers
that is how he got a loan of half a million
dollars in gold from Hussell Sage. Most
men would rather undertake to pry open
the Jaws of the Sphinx thaa to loosen the
purse strings of Mr. Sage. But White ac
complished it by sheer audacity and brains
That is all. except that he runs no blind
pools in this new business of his on F
street where Willard & Co. used to be.
He gives you advice if you want it, and
he deals in stocks or bonds for you. There
Is no bucketing in his deal. I like him
because 1 like his qualities. He shall have
his share of my trade.
Everybody on the street is watching the
fine spin t of Chicago Gas. It had a pretty
fair drop after the 3 rans-Missouri decision,
but has now picked up all it lost and more.
Deacon White, the other Washington gentle
man who has made almost as phenomenal
a success in the stock market as Abraham
White, is my authoiity on Chicago Gas.
He has made $40,000 in the stock since
he began his operations last spring. These
are "White's arguments: Chicago Gas ib
paying 0 per cent dividends. It is now
in the eighties.
It is every bit as good a stock as New
York Gas, which is around 160, and is
only paying 8 per cent. There are large
bank dividends in Chicago Gas, held up on
account of the legal troubles or the com
pany, which have been earned and are
in the treasury. The legal nrfalrs are
about straightened out. Consolidation will
almost surely come without much further
friction. Chicago. is spread out over many
miles and no competition need be feared
from outsiders, because of the immense
amount that would be required for new
mains for any other company. All this
sounds pretty plain and rather enticing.
"White says there is no reason in the world
why gas should not go to 90, and he ex
pects it in very short order.
The earnings of New York Central for
the month of March were $3,800,000.
The year before in March they were $3,
600,000, an increase of $200,0Q0. North
ern Pacific's earnings for the fourth week
of March were $533,000, an increase of
$82,000. For the month of March, they
were $2,360,000, an increase of $16,600.
For the year to date the earnings of
Northern Pacific have been $14,300,000,
which 8iiows a decrease of Jl,600,000. All
the statements for t,he latter part of the
year in Northern Pacific have been most
favorable, the decrease being all made in
the first month. ii
The earnings of St. Fnol for the first
week in April werc'$J9 1,000, showing a
decrcuse of $34,000. From July 1 St.
Paul's earnings have been $!73i00,000,
a decrease of $i,,:i00,000.
It Is rumored that the new passenger
agreement between the Western roads
will be much stronger than the old one,
though it is not stated how this will be
done, avofding the Trans-Missouri decision,
or if it 1ms been thought necessary to avoid
Sugar still fluctuates with no particular
tendency, rather a weakness than a
htrength, however. It seems probable that
Sugar is going lower, though a great many
people think to the contrary.
There, is a strong tip outon Omaha again.
Considerable buying is being done.
Mr. Silsby's cotton correspondents, Rob
ert Llndblotn & Co., and Munn & Co., say
or Cotton. The lute months arc down on
free selling by the fertilizer people and
farmers. We recommend sales on any ad
vance, as money will be made on them inside
of sixty days should the. weather clear
South. The Government report makes this
year's crop 8,534,807.
There is a feeling out that Tobacco is
to go lower. Various gossip is about,
some of it, probably, founded on fnct,
that tobacro is the least strong of the
trusts. One or the stoiles just at present
Is that the Wholesale Growers' Association
of Iowa voted unanimously not to handle
the goods of the American Tobacco Com
pany because of the rescinding of the
"Wnshiimton Stuck Market.

Chicago, April 10. The bears have had
a very profitable week in wheat'andcoar&e
grains, although more so by far In the
former, prices having declined G cents per
bufchel from labt Saturday's close. The
6ame depression has existed abroad, Liver
pool fallowing even more decline than Chi
cago. The tasc with which prices have
declined and the apparent lack of confi
dence among holders have undoubtedly
encouraged the bears to sell at an extreme
ly dangerous price. It is believed the de
cline will develop a very large domestic and
foreign cash demand, which in turn will
further diminish our present depleted stocks
and again cause high prices. Even if the
growing winter crop should provclargc.it
will not be available until August; in the
meantime elevators and mills in the in
teriorare very scantily supplied; the amount
of contract wheat in Chicago is astonish
ingly small, and indications point to a lib
eral movement outof Minneapolis and Du
luth at the opening of navigation. It is
thought that the mffflcet will not decline
below the low poifitT touched yesterday
again on the prcsent-Torc-p:
