rniDGKi'ORT, Conn., Aug. 19. William
15. Hill, a prosperous miller, lives with his
wife and two children in an old-fashioned,
picturesque house in Fairfield Woods,
about three miles west of the village oi
Fairfield. The house is in a lonely spot
a short distance from Mill River, on which
Mr. Hill's mill stand. Mr. Hill's nearest
neighbor lives more than half a mile away,
Henry Weller, a mill hand, and Alice
Tanner, a house servant 15 years old, livo
in Mr. Hill's house.
At midnight Mrs. Hill heard a groan
in Weller's room. She awoke her husband
who listened and heard the irroan re
peated. Thinking Weller was ill, Mr.
I Iill got up and started toward the mill
hand's room. Just as he entered the door
ho was seized by three men. There was
no light in the room except the moonlight.
By this Mr. Hill saw that the men had
handkerchiefs over their faces. He
fought the men desperately. After u
btrugglo of ten minutes, during which tho
doughty miller was struck on the head
with clubs and kicked unmercifully, he
was thrown on the. iloor and handcuil'cd
and his legs were tied. He saw Unit the
hired man had been teemed in the same
When Mrs. Hill heard her husdund and
the burglars struggling she ran down
stairs and out of the front door, intending
to alarm the nearest neighbor, James Connor.
When she reached the road she saw
one of the men emerge from the house and
follow her. He caught her and took her
back into the house. Her two childicn,
one of whom is three years old and tlie
other a baby, had been awakened and were
crying. The man told her that he would
not tie her if she kept quiet, lie stood in
her room and waU'hed her as she tried to
put the children to sleep.
The servant girl, who had been also
awakened by the noise in the hired man's
room, tried to run out of the house. She
was promptly caught by two of the burglars,
who tied her to her bed with sheets.
There being no one else to secure, two of
the burglars then proceeded to ransack the
house, while tho other three stood watcli
over Mrs. Hill, Mr. Hill and tho hired
man, and tho servant girl. At no time
did the men remove the handkerchiefs
from their faces. One man watched both
Mr. Hill and Weller. He frequently
brandished a club and threatened to kill
them if they made an outcry. The burglars
who were assigned to find the plunder
opened all the drawers and cupboards
without finding nnything they wanted, except
a gold watch belonging to Mr-.
Hill. 1'hey then attacked an iiiu
safe on the first floor. They worked :il i.
for hall' an hour with cold chisels and jimmies,
am' nt it open. They swore vig
wli.n they found that it contained
nothing hut papers. Thev went up sia.i
to tho room where Mr. Hill and tho hir"u
man lay. They endeavored to get the
miller to tell them where ho had put hi-,
money. Ho refused to do so. Two of t lumen
then went to tho barn and hitched n
a horse and buggy. The whole gaii
crowded into the buggy and loft the
about 3 o'clock.
As soon as the sound of the buggy
wheels had died away Mrs. Hill went to
the servant girl's room and reloased her
from thciicd. She ran to James Connor'
house and told him of the burglary. Connor
came to Hill's houeo in his carriage.
He broke tho chains on the handcuffs on
Mr. Hill and the hired man, after which
he jumped into his carriage and started
after the burglars. Ho tracked them to
this city, and found Mr. Hill's abandoned
buggy in North avenue. Chief of Police
Marsh was notified, and detailed Detectives
George Arnold and James Jenning
to investigate the caso. When tho detectives
arrived at Mr. Hill's house tho irn
bands were still on tho wrists of Mi,
Hill and his hired man. They wore file
off. Mr. Hill is vory stiff and sore fros
the effects of his fight with tho burglar .

see or hear, and could talk and eat but
very little. Physicians pronounced hei
disease a spinal difficulty, and it was
thought she could not recover. A curious
feature of her cuse was that sho could
hear and sea when a friend, u voung girl
to whom sho was deeply attached, put her
hand on the Hiifferer's arm. She is now
able to sec, hear, and converse without a.r'
difficulty, but whether she will recover tit
not will be decided by time.

after a successful wrial journey from New
York. He ascended from Zulzer's Harlem
River Garden at 5:10 p. in., accompanied
by James Creelman. who had been
with him on three previous occasions.
The 1 alloon took a westerly course after
reaching an attitude of 2,000 feet, but
when 3,000 feet about the earth it got into
a current of air which carried in a northwesterly
direction. His highest attitude
at any timo was 4,000 feet. As night approached
the air became cold. Glimpses
of tho moon were had only twice, the
night being intensely dark. At ten minutes
before 3 o clock a. in., after passing
the Susquehanna at a speed of
or twentv miles an hour, the balloon
entered the valley where it stopped in midair,
there not being wind enough to move
it. Tho balloon was anchored in a grain
field, and its occupants lay down in the
balloon till daylight. By daylight a farm
house was seen a short distance away,
nnd u road was near by. By 5 o'clock tho
balloon had been secured in tho road by
fastening it to the gate nost in front of tho
house. Then the voyagerj went over into I
the orchard to await dcvelopements.
When the farmer came to the door at last
he looked in surprise at the wonder and
then let loose a dog, at the sight of which
the strangers mudo their presence known
by shouting, "Good morning." They
were then informed that the village in
sijjdit a mile away was Windsor, fifteen
miles from Binghampton, on a railroad
known as tho Delaware & Hudson Canal,
and that thev wpre 200 miles from New
York by an air line. Villagers who soon
congregated assisted in conveying the
balloon to the depot, and at 1:45 p. m. the
gentlemen were on their way home.

BURNED TO DEATH.
'I ho Horrible Heath or Mr. Frank
Ciur.yso, Aug. 19.- Frank Sklcnar, a
Hohemian printer, of this city, was burned
to death in a barn at Caledonia, a small
town above Kaeine, Wis., under circumstances
which occasion the surmise that
the ham was fired by his own mother for
the purpose of killing him. Tho mother
and son had quarreled about family affairs
the Mm wishing to write to his father,
who is still in the old country, and the
mother strenuously objecting. Frank
vent to the barn to'slecp, and a little later
his mother gave the alarm of fire at a
neighbor's, half a mile distant. The next
morning her son's remains were
found in the ruins. She was arrested on
the charge of arson. It is charitable supposed
that she is insane. "Frank Fklenar
. came to Chicago in 1S81 and learned the
printers' trade at the office of theSvernest,
a Bohemian paper published in this city,
where he has worked most of the time.
He was well educated and a man of good
habits, and is well spoken of by the members
of the students and turners societies
to which ho belonged.

He proposes to swim down the

Tho Canadian police at Niagara
Falls wnrned Rhodes against attempting
to swim the rapids, and says ho

PmiiAbKLPitiA, Aug. 19. Samuel
a chairmakcr by trado and a confirmed
drunkard, who boards with a Mrs-Andrews,
at 1935 Richmond street, got
out of bed in an intoxicated condition
vbout daybreak and wandered into n va
2imt lot in the rear of the premises. Actuated
by an eccentric impulse, he pulled
off his coat and breeches and sat down
upon tho ground. While in this position,
partly stupefied, and not able to compr -fiend
what was going on, he was avnoly
attacked by somo animal, either a dog or
a hog, and overpiwered. Ho was ti
drunk to cry for help, and the beast, ii'fr
tearing his shirt, ate about n pound o''
llesh from his thigh. The skin was
stripped and torn into shreds and
the uono laid bare. The wound was
about the size of an ordinary hut,
and presented a horrible appeiiranc.
Scraps of fiesh lay scattered around
through the grass. The miserable man
lay in an insensible condition for half an
hour. He lost ovor a quart of blood.
Finally recovering consciousness, he
crawled into the rear yard and up stairs
into his own room, where he put on
another pair of pantaloons, apparently
not realizing the dangerous nature of his
injuries. Ho attempted to lay down in
his bed, but was overcome by nausea, and
again crept down stairs, almost fainting
on the way. R"aching the kitchen h'
seized a bucket Mini then fell over
In this position, still losing Moot1
rapidly, he was found by a domestic, who
gave the alarm to tho police. Haywoo'
was taken to tho Episcopal
where his wound was dresed by Div.
Bertram and Knight, ne sobered uj
before noon and complained of intense
pain. It was at first feared that he woiil
live only a few hours, but at a late lmut
he was in complete possession of hi-senses,
able to talk coherently and apparently
lining fairly well. He stated that
vhen he first went in the yard he heard :
dog belonging to u neighbor, a Dr. .Tones,
baying loudlv. The dog rushed through
an aparture in the rear fence and made a
break for him. Ho was unable to pro
tect himself, owing to his intoxicated
condition, and the dog, after tearing his
clothe, ate the living, quivering flesh
from his thigh, from the hip nearly down
to his knee. He had never before known
the dog to behave so violently. The hospital
physician, on the other hand, says
that Haywood was too drunk to know
what attacked him, and thinks that it was
undoubtedly u hog. Dozens of these animals

Is takes no wise men to know that no
convention ever adjourned with every
delegate and every candidate in tho be-it
of humor, and though there were many
umbitions nipped, many little arrangements
interfered with, many great men
(in their own minds) laid uside, yet the
convention met, acted and adjourned with
as little real hard feeling as uny convention
of its sized and importance could.
The Republicans are not
pleased with the ticket; tho men who are
about to leave the party never were satisfied,
and only Democrats will be pleased.
On the same subject tho News Journal
The proceedings of the convention, if
such it can be called better should it be
brandod "McLean's wake" were disgraceful
in the extreme and insulting

a few exceptions, tho slato ticket that had
been "fixed" somo days ago, and pledged
to carryout a certain policy nnd become
the servient tools of an unscrupulous man.
Disorder reigned supremo from the first
stroke of the chairman's gavel until the
last delegate was carried away.

Aug. 19. Frank Blood, only
twenty-six years old,undonly four month's
married, died at Home Cave from fright
riroduccd by a dog's bite. The dog was a
ittle one and the bite was merely a
bcratch, but Blood became so violent three
hours afterward that three men were required
to hold him. In the afternoon,
worn out by his excitement ho became
unconscious, and in the evening he died.
In conscious moments he showed no antipathy
to water, but called for it frequently.
TJiiSjby tht physicians.is regarded ns proof
that he did not die of hydrophobia, but of
frightfrom npprehension of that disease. A
council of physicians decided that death
was caused by nervous exhaution.
a prominent member of tho Albany

was produced by excessive
nervousness only, brought on "by newspaper

A. CiiriouNMtninuedo For Jfo Good
Saratoga, N. Y., Aug. 19. At a few
minutes past '1 o'clock in the afternoon a
cloud of smoke rushed out from the basement
of a dress and cloak cstablisment
located in one of the wings of tho Grand
Union Hotel. Hundreds of guests sat
upon the piazzas and in the garden of the
hotel ; groups of elegantly attired ladies
chatted pleasantly with their mule escorts,
while score of children romped joyously
through the spacious grounds aud vestibules
of this fashionable summer retreat.
About two thousand guests were stopping
nt the house. Soon after the smoko was
seen a cry of "Fire, lire!" resounded
throughout tho corridors. The smoke increased
in volume and everybody rushed
to the place whence it was seen to issue.
After taking a hasty glance at tho ominous
indications of a rapidly spreading
fire tho guests left hastily in the direction
of their rooms. "Do you think tho fire
will spread?" "Will we" have time to remove
our things?" Such were the questions
which were almost breathlessly propounded
as ladies, youiuf and old, ran up
stairs to their respective apartments.
Many speedily reappeared bringing with
them bundles of nil kinds. Articles of
wearing apparel, jewels and other personal
effects were hastily wrappou in
towels and counterpanes and
carried down to the large ftarlor and tho
piazza. Cashmere shawls, Persian wraps,
silks and satins of all colors were carried
in arms of ladies and their attendants and
deposited upon chairs and tables.
Some comical scenes were witnessed and
amusing conversations indulged in. Ono
gentleman came rushing through the
main parlor in search of his wife. ''Whero
was she?" asked a friend. "She was taking
a bath," he replied, "when the firo
broke out, and dressed herself hastily ; she
came down before me." He soon "found
her, however, among the crowd. Several
excited ladies nppeared with a poodle dog
in ono hand and a jewel casket in tho
other. lifignoli, the operatic tenor, was
seen in one corner evidently trying to
quiet the neves of au interesting "blonde.
Chambermaids und nurses aKo rushed
wildly upstairs and startled their
with the announcement that the
hotel was on fire.
During all this excitement two crowded
omnibuses drove up to the hotel and deposited
tlieir guests, who registered at the
ofUce after hearing that the lire was likely
to bo put out in a few minut uThi village
Fire Department was called out and a
bucket brigade formed to pas water from
the fountain in the northern portion of
the hotel park. The fire itself," however,
was soon extinguished.
Instrumental .llnsic In Church Pro
PnrsHi'uci, Aug. 19. The National
Convention of the anti-organ faction of
the United Presbytcriiu Church reassembled
in Allegheny Cijy. After the usual
devotional oxercises the Rev. James Price,
of Philadelphia, presented a series of
resolutions, in eflcot, of the propriety of
holding local conventions similar to
this one, and of forming an association for
tho niaintainance of the principles, and
especially of the purity of the worship
of the church, which demanded
consideration and uttention. The
resolutions were referred to a committee.
Dr. Wm. Wisheurt, of Waynesvillc, Ohio,
said he was conscientiously opposed to instrumental
music, und rather than givo
up his views of duty would givo up affiliation
with his brethren in tho church und
go where organs were not used. Said he:
'The organs will put us out of the church,
or we will put them out."
The Convention reassembled, and, after
tho usual devotional exercises, the report
of the Committee on Resolutions was
submitted. Tho rcsDlutions. which were
quite lengthy, characterized the action
of tho General Assembly of
18S2 as unlawful, and that in opening
the way to the introduction und us
of instrumental music in tho church they
had precipitated a crisis upon the church
which has made it necessary for those assembled
to do something to secure their
liberty of rights of conscienc in the
church. Whifo they recognizo tho General
Assembly as a superior court, they
nevertheless claim that obedienco
and submission is due it
only us tho decisions are in
accordance with tho tenets of tho church
as expressed in the standards of the
church. They, therefore, recommend that
- a committee .of livo bo appointed
to prepare nnd havo circulated a
memorial embodying the judgment of this
Convention in regard to the matters to tho
next General Assembly. Tho resolutions
provoked considerable discussion, but
were finally adopted unanimously.
