The day bad boen very p'eusunt, but
just bffore he st.trtod it bean to

and as night came on incren?od to n
strong gale, the mew fui'.ins; thicker
and faster, so that it soon beoaue ciill
cult to keep the road, which is simply

a fence, tree or bouse to f aide the
traveler, for ten Tniles: Ifo ?issed a
small deVrted oabin.the only build

dirk, and soon alter the night became
to dark na.l the slorni was driving' o
fiercely In bis lace that be 'was uqalle
to guide the tcan or ste any signs ,of
tho road. IIo know that he could not
be more than a mile or two from the
Yates -soUJemont, and believing, that
tho Lorscs would find thoif way to the
r tation he left them to' take their own
course. After traveling thus a Jong
time, and failing to reach tho soUlor
ment, he knew tkat the team had lost
thofoud, bnt was utterly tumble to. Ue
tormine whether he wits north, south,
eaut or west of tho - station.; Awttre of
the bopoloiAnesa of finding the road or
settloment, in the intense . dnrkness
thut bud by tbia time oome on, ho,de-t
tormined to tarn around and try to re
trace .his tracks to tho deserted, enlin
which he hadpataed. ;
i Hat the etorm, which hud been stead
ily increasing wilh; each hour, drifted
the enow over tho track ulsnost as fast
aa it was mado, and . Mr. Hale soon
found that he had lost fill traces of it
and was wandering around ou the
great prairie ntterly lor t. His pros-,
euoeofmind nover detfortod hiin. and
he at unco detorminod that his only
chance for lifo was to keep the team
moving slowly that they should net
perish with odd before morning. '
Mr. Hale had t.kon the precaution
to prepnro Tor n storm before he left
the lakes. He had on two flannel
chirts,' two pnir of socks, two .pair of
pants, two heavy coats, two pair of
mittens, a pair of thick boots and buf
falo overshoes, nnd over all of his clo
thing was rnppod'a large, heavy rub
ber overcoat. All through 'that 'long
torrible night he kept his teum slowly
moving, knowing-very well thut if
they etopped, the team' and driver
would eoon 'become chilled through,-
and the sleep and stupor which pre
cedes death from freeiing, would soie
upen them long before caorning- All

Whoa ' darkneis agaie cloned around

ko dept en his feet, sometimes becom

he would stop a fo'.v "moments to rest.
He' tcpoitteJly fall asleep whilethus
standing, and was only awakened by
falling Into the show. Again and
fc'galn during Friday night he did the.
struggle ou till daylight appeared. '
Tho wind had now eeMod, but the cold
was intense. When the sun crme up
en- ' ' -: - -
morning he was able for tho
to learn the directions.. Looking anx
iously around on every side, and see
ing no settlement, grovo or road, , ke
folt that a longer struggle for life was
almost hopoless. But finding that he
was still able to , movo, bo turnod his

tumble down into the snow, again
awakon, rise up, and Bgsin push on.
Night once mora came on, and foand
him still ont on thegreat prairie, with
no' shelter in sight. Again did he pass
another night tlie third one on Vis
feet, walking, stepping, falling asloep,
tumbling down, awakening, rising up,
and toiling on again. Lost, starving,
and freeaing, but still undismayed he
watchod patiently during ' the 'l6ng
hours of the night for the rising of the
sun on the morning of - - 1

SUNDAY. Frightful Death of a Drunkard
--Alleged Case of Spontaneous
'The Indianapolis ""Journal of Satur
day says :' , ""',,' ' "', ' '
"We -''are: ladobted to Dr. , M. , L,
Whitwside, dentist, of thiii city, for the
particulars of a most singular and
appalling " catastrophe that occ'urrotl
yesterday morning in the town ef Co
lumbus, about forty miles south of this
oity.ba the Madison railroad. About
8 o'clock the attention of some citizens
on' the street was" attracted to the liq
uor shop of A Gorman by the ame of
'Andrew Nolte, by a slight smoke issd-
ing from it. He bad long been known
to be 'a very jnteaaporate ' man, and
recontly, it was' suppose J ia conse
quence of his - wife leaving him, and
applying for a divorce oa account of
his confirmed diunkoness, more ' con
stantly and beastly drunk than usual.
On entering,- they' found' him lying
dead behind hia counter, upon aboard
which was used to keep hisfuetoff the
wet floor, with hit head near a whisky
barrol. His clethos were still burning.
Ilia : lips Lad bien' "'entirely- burned
away,' leayinga ghastly hole, in which
hit tengae was Been burnod to a crisp,
as was the inside of hi month and his
throat. His nose was also ' burned, its
if by fire coming out of hit nostrils.
The remainder of the body was scorch
ed '-where the' burning' clothes - bad
touehed, but showed no- other indica
tioa of fire.;' The' bands wtTA -tfra'Wa
up to the; ineiith,' as if te j aloie ib, e
shut off some dreaded thing from it.
There was no fire in the room that Dr,
Whiteside could - Bee,- asd

volver was found, besido it, but all' the
charges were In it, aid no. marks oi
injuries, except from the fire were dis
covered, s that t death oeald not
have ben cause by su'cijle, But If it
bad beca, theiipe barae-i entirely off,
and trt''cri'Bpr jronguef throat and

plicable, as the fire was manifestly of

or other that -weuld 'indicate where
tlie'Cretame from, and how' H-was
need.1 ' But if it could have beca thtis
applied, it Ib impossible tr lolievo that
it was, for there could be no more mo
tive to' burn a dead man, especially
about the mouth aad nose. The Banie
fact of this singular character and Id
eality 6f the burning, involving only
the air passages, precludes nil idea ef
a death by violence. No murderer or
robber would try to kill a ninn by set
ting him en ftro, or if be should, be
would not, aud could not, put fire to
his mouth and note only. No hypo
thesis of murdor seems to be tenable,
and thftt ofsaioido is even more ab
surd. We must, therefore, eonclude
that the death was eaused by tpenian
eove combustion, or by the burning of
ir -Ininmable gusses, gencratod in the
whieky-retted carcass, and CBcaping
by the lungs and air passages. 'This
might have been caused by an attempt
to light a cigar with a match or othor
flame. There are several authentica
ted er.f s of spontaneous combustion on
record, as our physicians know. Dick-,
ens has cited a few in justification of
the iacident wbioh forms to frightful
a scone' of his "Bleuk Honse" but we
quostiott if a more clearly marked case
than this at Columbus has ever eoour
red. : We may note that he had on a
eoldier's blouse, n -flannel undershirt,
and a cotton overehirt; and that his
hair wns not burned. ; "

.The. following. took place iotke

A member from one of our mountain
counties, full .of conservatism and a

would commence reading .his favorite
paper, and about the. same moment
some number would mere ta dispense
with tho reading of the journal, wheo
oui. mountain . member would lay
down his paper. He. stood this for
some time, when, rising from his eat
one morning aftwr the usual motion, ke
exolaimed at the top of hia voice:
