a man, attacked by a footpad, defending him
self by thrusting a section of bologna sausage
into the highwayman's face, and he, under
the impression it was a revolver, took to his
heels. But it remained for a Springfield
weincr-wurst vender to stampede a whole
audience of several hundred people Just
as the drama which was the attraction at
Black's Opera House, Friday night, was
reaching the grand denouement and
when everybody's attention was breathlessly
fixed on the actor, there came a tremendous
explosion, sounding in the awful silence as
though a battery of sttam lwilers had incon
tinently "let go ' This was followed by a
smell ot coal oil penetrating the place. In a
moment the scene of action was transferred
from the stage to the auditorium, and, as one
person, almost, five or eix hundred people,
many of them women and girls, made a sim
ultaneous and precipitate break lor the exit
It seemed at that moment as though a fear
fully fatal panic was inevitable, but the regu
lar attendants fortunately kept their heads,
knowing the harmless source of the explosioa
and did exactly the right thing at the right
time they sprang to each door and
locked it fast. The people threw
themselves against the doors, but they re
sisted the fearful pressure and the women set
up a tremendous screaming, the hon-e pre
senting a scene of confusion worse con
founded. Several of the actors, who appre
ciated the situation at a glance, came to the
footlights and yelled for the audience to be
seated; that there was no danger, in which
they were seconded by such of tho:e in front
as had kept cool and remained in their places.
Somebody also yelled "Start up that orches
tra," and the pianist and trombonist, getting
into position, set up a racket that instantly
drowned all other sounds, and these com
bined efforts having the desired effect the
panic-stricken crowd finally became seated,
and the show went on.
It appeared that one ut those perambulat
ing restanranteurs, the wemer-wurst buys,
had made his way into the passage inside the
main entrance, and the lamp which is kept
burning under the can to keep the contents
hot, having become overheated, exploded,
which was the innocent and unu'ual cause of
tke scare. Beyond the destruction of the
sausage, rye bread and horse radih no real
damage was done, but the escape was a nar
row one and great credit is due- the corps of
ushers for their presence of mind and prompt
action. early everybody's first thought
was of the dynamiters and their recent work,
and it is probable none of thoe pre'ent will
hear the familiar cry, "weiner-wurstl'' for
sometime to come without a shudder.

Management of Diphtheria.
There are many cacs to which at
first a skilled phjsician cannot say
positively whether it is contagious
diphtheria or a tuple non-specific in
flammation with which he has to deal,
and this unci rtamU may continue for
a considerable time If Dr. .JncoM's
iews are correit. md lie is certainly
en high authority on this subject,
diphtheria in i exist, especially in the
adult, in a ehroine form, not greatly
disturbing the health, or atall eents
not preventing the person so aflected
from going about and performing his
or her usual duties, and jet making
the secretions from such person capa
ble of con eying the disease.
The precautions to be taken in the
management of a well-marked case
are, or should be. generally known;
they have been published as health
circulars by many health boards, and
through the secular and medical press,
and may be summed up as follows:
Isolate the patient in an airy room,
having the least possible amount of
furniture, espcci ilh that which is up
holstered, and having no carpet or cur
tains. Disinfect all excretions and se
cretions, and especially those from the
throat, nose and mouth, and all articles
soiled by them, promptly, while they
are yet "moist, and thoroughly. Use
clean, soft rags for recen ing the dis
charge from the nose and mouth, and
burn them as soon as soiled. Jf other
articles are soiled u-e solutions of chlo
ride of 7111c, or bi-chlonde of mercury,
under the instructions of the ihiciin.
He especi illy careful as regards toys,
pencils, or other articles n hich may be
gh en the child for its amusement, of
the articles used in giving it food or
drink, and of the remnants of such
food or drink. Everything that has
touched the patient's litis, is very dau-
hen convalescence nas set in, uo
not yield too soon to the importuuitics
of the patient to be allowed to see his
friends or to go out, nor to your own
feelings of weariness-at the long-con-tiuucd
conlinement. Aboc all things,
do not, under the exeiiso of giving
change of air and scene, send him oil
to some other place to complete his re
covery: you might send dynamite
about the country with scarcely more
risk. Do not send the child back to
school in less than siv weeks after tho
attack; about two weeks after you are
satisfied that he is entirely well, is a
very good rule.
If the little life is not strong enough
to withstand the attack, and is cut
short, do not, in your grief, forget the
danger to other lives which the house
and its contents may yet cause. Do not
allow sympathizing fneuiis and play
mates to enter; do not have any funer
al ceremonies in the house; treat the
sfek-room and its coutcnts as being

A Xcnia, Ohio, letter to the Louis
ville Coiincr-Journid, s y s:
An exciting and noel battle took
place in one of the pasture fields at the
Soldiers' Orphans' home recently.
Wallace Me id, a 15-year-old boy, had
gone out to look for some cattle, when
he was attacked by -i large eagle.
When the boy hr't saw the eajrlc it
was perched 111 a tiee, and he .started
on a run for the nistitiit'on. Ihe bird
of freedom gae t base and soon over
took the youngs er. It buried its tal
ons in the I'.cshy part of his leg. but tho
boy was able to shake his ass.ulant off.
It then jumped upon the little fellow
and bit him severely upon tho arm.
The toy then commenced to fight the
eagle, and went at the noble bird in
true pugilistic style with his baie fists.
He soon succeeded in getting a good
hold upon tlie eagle's neck, and soon
choked and crushed it to death The
boy was chaut"d after the conflict,
anil had to be taken to the hospital,
wiiere it was found he had received
many seratehts and bite-. 'Ihe body
of the eagle, w huh measured four feet
from tip to tip. will be turned over to
the taxider it and piescrved for the
little fellow as a 1111 meiito of his heroic
battle. Tliis is the tir-t eagle captured
in Green count for mam tears.
A Cliost tliat Th lows stones.
There are strange stones atloat in
the commiin ty in this part of tho cape
as to a ghost which has made its ap
pearance in and round the little vil
lage of Count, on the border of the re
cently incorpotated town of JIasbpce.
Cotuit and M.ishpie are separated by a
sin ill trout stream, and 011 the north
erly side ot thisstieam in Jlashpeo
seems to be the favoute haunt of a tall
ghost. Ihe road f 10111 Cotuit to Sand
wich p i-kes oer a budge crossing this
stream, and those who are wont to pass
in carnage- along the highway are th
witnesses as to the fact of the ghost's
existence. The hrst introduction of
these pa-sengeis to the spook was the
surprisingly lapid throwing of stones
against the side of the ve'jiele in which
the passengers were seated After the
hist volley of stones the passengers
looked out in the direction whence tho
stones c line and saw, to their amaze
ment, the nfoifs ud ghost, which was
the tall and dark ligure of a female. A
kind of sorrowful look of levenge seem
ed to ha e taken possi ssion of her face.
Nion she would dem itenalizc and xau
ish away into the bowels of a nci-rhbor-ing
hill. '1 he ghost w ears a long and
