According to our arithmetic, three

Wo are unable to coucclvo the mo
dun operandi by which this result is
reached, unless three pennies aro re
yarded as equal to three cents and
are added to four dollars. The Jour
nal was simply mistaken in stating
that pennies could be multiplied by
dollars. He might as well try lo
multiply 6 cows by 3 stacks nf hay.
Dollars can't bo multiplied by dol
lars, nor cents by cents. Do you see

A NARROW ESCAPE.
An accident thU came near being
very serious occurred to tho mall and
passeugor hack line between this
place and Weutzville last Friday af
ternoon. There Is an ugly crossing
at a slough near Dig croek bridge,
which during high water becomes
Impassable. The rains last week put
the slough up, but in going dowu on
Friday tho hack crossed over safely,
and It was thought there would be
little or no danger returning. Thero
were three passengers In tho hack,
N. C. Dryden, Esq., ot this place, Mr,
E. S. Fry of St. Louis, and a German
named Waggoner from Illinois. They
all couoludud to risk crossing, and
Mr. J. J. Blsnchard, one ot the best
drivers In the stato, drovo in. About
midway ol tho slough, the swift
water washed tho hack and horses oQ
the bench of rocks that serve as a
crossing into a deep hole Just below.
Tho hack, top and all, with passen
gers and driver, went clour under,
with the exception of Mr. Dryden
who Jumped out and swam to shoro.
Tho hack roso and floated with the
horses down tho stroutn, tho driver
managing them a well &s ho could.
Tho German Jumped out, sunk ouco
or twice, and would havo drowned
hut for tho prcsenco of mind of Mr.
Fry, who kept his position In tho
buck mid cuught him by tho hair,
pulling lil us In again. Mr. Fry's
coolness was also displayed by reach
lug after tlio floating mail bags and
other articles and hauling thorn into
the hack again. They drifted dowu
to shallow water, where tho horses
gained a footing, one of them, how
ever, being nearly drowned. Mr.
Ulauchard, assisted by Mr. Fry,
finally got everything safely to shore,
and though the malls were somewhat
damaged, nil were brought safely Into
Troy that evening. This slough is a
troublesome place, oftou depriving us
nf thu mull several days at a I lino
during very rainy seasons, and ft
strikes us that tho citizens of Troy,
Weutzville and along tho Hue ought
to stir up enough enterprise to have

Eld. T. Ford preached to a largo
and appreciative audience ou ye-ter-day
at tho Christian church. He took
for his text the words "Ho that
dooth the will of his Father which is
in Heaven." The text was well han
dled ; in fact he preuehod an excellent
discourse. The greatest trouble was
the difli cully of hearing, caused by
tho continued crying of children.
