DONOVAN'S LFAP TO DEATH.
THE FAMOUS BRIDGE JUMPER MEETS
HIS FATE IN ENGLAND.
He Sprang from Hungerford Bridge, Lon
don,. Only to Terminate His Reckless
Career-He Eclipsed A11 Until Matthew
Byrne Beat His Record Last Friday.
(New York Star, Aug. 8.)
Fearless Lawrence M. Donovan, the
bridge jumper, has made his last jump.
The following cablegram, received at the
Police Gazette office yesterday, tells the sad
storyof his death:
"LoioN, Aug. 7.-Larry Donovan this
morning jumped from Hungerford Bridge
and was drowned. G. W. Arumssox."
Lawrence Donovon, or "Larry," as he
was familiarly called by his friends, seemed
to know no fear. He first ga'ed notoriety
by jumping from the Brooklyn Bridge on
August 28.1886, eclipsing Steve Brodie's
famous drop by about fifteen feet. Larry
was born at No. 55 Frankfort street, New
York, twenty-six years ago. His parents,
who were natives of the Green Isle, gave
him a fair education. The young man,
while dutiful, managed to have his own
way a good deal. His father, Lawrence
Donovan, saved a little money by hard
work, but just as Larry had arrived at the
age when he could enter college the'old
gentleman wrote a book, entitled "Com
man Sense Facts"
He-was unable to finda frm willing to
put it on the market, and published it him
self. It wasalmost a complete failure, and
the old gentleman sank all his ready money
tn it. It was then that Larry was sent to
work to help support the family. After
knocking about from place to place for a
few years he joined the regular army, but
the military routine did not suit his roving
disposition, and when his enlistment time
was up he came back to this city. He se
cured a position in a downtown printing
office, and in a short time found himself a
The death of Professor Odlum, who was
killed in jumping from the Brooklyn
midge on May 24, 1885,- created a good
deal of excitement throughout the city. It
was thought that his sad end would pre
vent others from undertaking the feat, but
inJuly of the following year Steve Brodie
d ped from the trestle-work of the bridge
y into the river, and electrified the
residenta of this city. He was the first
mad who had made the leap in safety, and
it- was thought he had done it more by
good luck than anything else.
No one dreamed that anybody would
everatempt the jump again, considering
Brodle'amiraculous escape from death, but
on August 28, a month later, Donovan
dthe leap in safety from a point fifteen
feshlgher than where Brodie had dropped.
Justice Dufy in the Tombs Police Court
8ned Larry $10, which was paid by Rich
*d K. Fox. The young man said he had
made the jump for a wager of $500. He
refused to say with whom the wager, but
ftwas said that Richard K. Fox was the
man.' Shortly. after this Larry told his
frienadsthat be'was going to dive head fore
most of the bridge. This was communi
cited to the police, and when he attempted

is an event or more than ordinary im

FARM FEEDING STUFFS.
Analyses of their Constituents, Made at
the Experimental Station in Columbia.
Explanatory Remarks.-To prevent
possible misunderstanding, and for the
convenience of those who may not be
familiar with the terms employed in ex
pressing the results of analyses of feed
ing stuffs, the following explanations
Moisture.-All vegetable substances,
however dry they may seem to be, con
tain water. This is generally designated
moisture, and is determined by the loss
in weight of the substance on drying it
for several hours at 100 degrees C., the
boiling point of water.
Ash.-The mineral or non-volatile
residue remaining after carefully burn
ing the vegetable matter, is known as
ash. Some of its constituents are im
portant substances. In the ash also are
contained most of the manurial matters
withdrawn by the plant from the soil.
Crude Fat.-On extracting dry vege
table matter with ether, the fat or vege
table oils, with small quantities of wax,
coloring matter, etc., are obtained. This
extract is called crude fat.
Crude Fiber.-An agricultural plant
is an tion of microscopic cells.
The of these cells consist of cellu
lose. When the plant is young and
tender, the cellulose is largely digesti
ble; but, as the plant grows, these cell
walls thicken and become tough and
woody. In this condition the cellulose,
or crude fiber, is no longer digestible;
and is not acted upon by dilute acids or
alkalies. Cotton and linen are examples
of almost pure cellulose.
Crude Protein, or Crude Albuminoids.
-For the sake of uniformity these terms
are made to embrace all of the nitro
geneous substances of the plant, viz.,
true albuminoids, amides and nitrates.
The true albuminoids, which form much
the larger part of the nitrogenous com
pounds present in the plant, constitute a
group of closely related bodies, strongly
resembling albumin in their properties.
In the animal they form the muscles,
and most of the solid matter of the
blood and nerves. The white of an
egg, muscular fiber, gluten and casein,
are familiar examples of this important
group of bodies. The amides, generally
present in much smaller quantity, are
substituted ammonia compounds, Sup
posed to have a much lower nutritive
value than the albuminoids.
Non-Nitrogenous Extract, or Carbo
hydrates.-Here belong the rmainder
of the substances contained in the plant,
after substracting Moisture, Ash, Crude
Fat, Crude Fiber and Crude Protein.
They are compounds free from nitrogen,
and are soluble in either water, dilute
acids, or dilute alkalies; hence the terms
Non-nitrogenous, or Nitrogen-free Ex
tract. The starches, sugars, gums,
pectin, organic acids, and the tender
parts of the vegetable fiber are the more
important of these compounds.
The albuminoids and fats are the most
valuable constituents of foods, although
importance attaches also to the nitro
gen-free extracts and even to the fiber

THE )E BRAAK LOCATED.
THE SUNKEN ENGLISH SLOOP-OF-WAR
WITH MILLIONS ON BOARD
In Twelve Fathoms of Water-Dr. Pan
coast Brings the News from the Break
water and Hurries to New York.
(Philadelphia Times, Aug. 9.)
Dr. Seth Pancoast, of No. 931 Arch
street, who has spent $12,000 in the past
two years trying to locate the sunken Eng
lish sloop-of-war De Braak, came up from
the Breakwater yesterday morning, and
after remaining at his house long enough
to write three or four telegrams, hurried to
the Broad street station and took a train for
He was excited over the discovery made
by Capt. Charles A. Adams and Lieut Geo.
P. Blow, of the navy, who are positive
that they have at last located the De Braak,
which was supposed to have on board
$10,000,000 in gold and silver when she
went down on the 25th of May, 178.
Dr. Pancoast went to New York to get
four or five of the best divers that money
can hire. He will hurry back to this city,
and, if possible, will leave the Broad street
station for Lewes on the 3.01 train this
afternoon over the Delaware Division of
the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Balti
The steamboat City of Long Branch,
which was fitted up at an expense of sev
eral thousand dollars, left this city ten days
ago, thoroughly equipped to spend the
summer and next winter searching for the
sunken sloop. Captain Adams, who has
been in the navy twenty-five years, and
Lieutenant Blow had charge of the expe
dition, and all the necessary charts and
nautical implements were furnished by the
The discovery of the sloop was made
late on Tuesday, when a diver brought up
a petrified piece of teak wood, of which
the De Braak was built.
The grappling irons were covered with
verdigris and strong evidences that the
irons had come in contact with the copper
which was on the De Braak at the time
she sunk. The City of Long Branch lies
directly over the supposed wreck. The
irons were lowered in twelve fathoms of
water three-quarters of a mile out from the
Breakwater. The same spot, according to
calculation, where the grappling irons
came in contact with copper two years ago.
The present expedition, which is being
carried on on scientific principles, it was
decided was to be the final attempt to find
the hidden treasure.
THE GOVERNMXENT's BIG SLICE.
The Government entered into a contract
with the International Submarine Com
pany, of New Haven, having its place of
business in this city, on the 25th of August,
1880, in conformity with a contract also
entered into between Dr. Pancoast and the
International Submarine Company. The
Government's contract was made on the
strength of section 3,755 of the revised
statutes of the United States, which says:
"The Secretary of the Treasury is author
ized to make any contract which he may
deem for the interest of the Government
for the preservation, sale or collection of
any property or the proceeds thereof which
may have become wrecked, abandoned or
become derelict, being within the jurisdic
tion of the United States or which ought
to come to the United States."
The Goverment is to receive ten per cent.
on the amount found.
A syndicate, composed principally of
Philadelphians, is interested in the recov
ery of the treasure. James J. Kane is at
the head of it, although Dr. Pancoast, who
has so persistently worked to find the
treasure, is the man who organized the
syndicate and he is the man who delivers
the shares of stock and recevgaJPs6eme
One hundred sharem *e~ were issued at
$800 a share. About eighty of the shares
we p to the middle of July, and
e cashier of the Second National Bank,
of Hoboken, Is believed to have purchased
the remaining twenty shares. The certifi
cates of stock read:
"It is estimated that the 'Break' con
tined treasures valued at from ten to
twenty millions of dollars. In case ten
millions are recovered this certificate will
entitle ten thousand dollars and a
pro rata upon any greater or lesser amount
received by said third party."

A STRANGE LOVE STORY.
How a White Girl Died for a Young and
In Australia several attempts have been
made to educate the blacks out of their
nomadic habits and into civil life, but in
almost every case the philanthropic effort
has failed to eradicate the instincts of
barbarism. Mr. Ballon, in "Under the
Southern Cross," tells the romantic story
of one of these failures. A young native,
a lad of 10 years, was taken from his
wild life and brought to Brisbane to be
educated and to grow up in the home of
a white family. Those engaged in the
experiment secured the consent of the
boy, of his parents and of the tribe.
They did their best to make him com
fortable and happy. During nine years
everything promised success.
At school he proved an apt scholar
and'became a favorite with the pupils
and teachers. He was dressed like his
associates and seemed so satisfied with a
civilized life that many good men and
women looked forward to the day when
he would exert a strong and beneficial
influence upon his own people. One
day, shortly after he had passed his
nineteenth birthday, he was missing
from Brisbane. No one knew what had
become of him except one young lady,
and she kept her knowledge to herself.
After months of search he was found at
his former home living the nomadic life
of a naked savage. No inducement
could prevail upon him to return and
live among his friends. At last there
came out the romance which revealed
the secret of the young black's nine
years' sojourn among the whites of Bris
bane. He had fallen in love with the
lovely daughter of the white family with
which he made his home. She recipro
cated his attachment, for he was a fine
specimen of his race, and her influence
made him studious and a sojourner at
her father's house. When his hereditary
feelings begat a longing for the bush
and a nomadic life she restrained him
from returning to his tribe.
At last he frankly told her that he
loved her too sincerely to suggest that
she should go with him to his savage
home, but that he was unhappy and
restless and must seek his native wilds.
She had the good sense not to protest
against the separation, for he would not
remain and she would not go. Accepting
the inevitable, they parted; he to live as
a savage and she to die.
A young hospital physician at Buffalo
said the other night: A good many sen
timental people imagine that it's just
lovely tobe a nurse. They think how
sweet it must be to bathe the placid
brow of the sufferer, to put cool pillows
under his head, and to talk to him in
low, soothing tones. But when you
have alighted from yo'r romantic balloon
on the hard-ground of fact it doesn't
seem so lovely, after all. There is no
dilletanteism in a hospital. The girl
that daubs plaques and strums the piano
badly is not the kind of girl you find
doing hospital work. Almost all the
work that a nurse has to do in a hospital
is drudgery of the most disillusioning
kind, and only girls that have the real
desire to do the work and to succeed in
it, whatever discomforts it may entail
on them, ever go through with it. That
is why these trained nurses are an extra
ordinary band of young women. For
the sake of proficiency in their profession

WOODBINE. Ky., August 7.-At Page
precinct in Knox county a difficulty arose
on a bet on the election. Jim Jones struck
Bill Gilbert in the mouth, when Jack
Smith took sides with Gilbert and stabbed
Jones in the neck, from which woud he
died about '7 o'clock last evening. No ar

ported killed in Indian Creek, which is also
in Knox county, but as yet have been un
able to learn the particulars, except that it
