Fanciful Predictions o. War.

ful predictions of such a war which
havo appeared heretofore In American
Journals. In ono of these liirigluntlves,
called "Our Lito War With Spain,"
England aud Germany are supposed t
bu allied wiih Spain against us, and
heavy land fighting Is mado to tke
pi nee in Canada. In u much earlier
one, entitled, "The End of "Now York,"
wo aro represented as In alliance with
Chill, ami our navy nnd cast defenses
arc so weak that this alliance Is thu
chief causa of our escape from terrible
On tho whole, so farns wo can now
Judge, a comparison between these lie
titious contests ami the real war sug
gests what Mark Tup ley said about
New York that It reminded him of old
York quito vividly, by being ho unhko
it. Yet tho "End of Now Yoik." In
spite of lis extvavlgance, had an Im
portant effect, for It helped to call
general attention to our depleted and
old fashioned navy, and our unprotect
ed harbors, und what was afterwards
dono to remedy theso evils may bu
traced to the interest it had much to
do with exciting In the subject. A sim
ilar result ensued from the publication
In England of "Tho Battle of the Doik
Ing," Just after the last war between
Germany and Franco. That appalling
plcturoof England's downfall In ono
battle, supposed to take nlaciiu 1875,
romed tho nation to n determined ef.
fort, which mado It stronger for defonso
than It had ever been before.

which he was ndmlttcd on order of the
Mammoth Mining company, for which
ho formerly worked. Woodman is lu a
terrible condition and certainly loses
both feet nnd a portion of his lingers,
and very probably his lifo. It appears
that liu was on Ids way to Mammoth

became partially demented through
