pression is abroad that the plague

this subject close with the book of
lamentations, and not with the iook of
Eevelation. Excuse me from adopting
any such infidel theory. The Bible re
iterates it until there is no more pow

that the earth is to be. not half, or

Grewsome Discovery at Lieut,
Greeley's Camp at Cape Sabinae
One of the Mexnbers of the Recent
Peary Expedition Gives Out Pacts
That Were to Have Been
In an interview with a Boston Post
reporter Assistant Elx ieer Knight, of
Lieut. Peary's ship Bowe, stated that
positiie 'proofs of camribalis-m were
fourd at Lient. GreEley's camp at Cape
Sabine by a ]arding partr. dir. Knight
says that ehen Cape S:b ne " as
reached only the. ser etists of the party
and one or two attendants to Jo the
ronzh work were 1arded. before groin
ashore each of the party was told to
expect to and some visa -reeable things.
but to be prepared to keep silent for
ever, if necessary, as to what was found.
_All azreein , the party was landed and
the search becun. When the expedi
tion returned aboard At bore a lot of
cast-off clothing, empty provision cans.
surgical instruments. etc., and a bit of
board bearirn the rame of Will Nor
man, the ice pilot of the party, who
died in Trook'lyn a few years nro.
These thinmgs were placed in the engine
room of the Hlope to dry, while Mr
Peary took some other things to his
cabin. The most important find, how
ever, was not brought on board, but
was buried near the camp. It consisted
of the frozen remains of a human right
thigh that was found in the snow out
side the camp proper, near the place
used as a burial ground by the Greeley
party. This part of a limb was taken
from the body at the hip joint, the sep
aration having evidently been made by
the use of the knife alone at the hip
and knee. For about a foot from the
hip down the bone was bare, the flesh
baving apparently been cut away as a
butcher cuts a leg of beef.
Machinery to Do Their Work t3 a
Coal Mine in Pennsyl-ants.
The Philadelphia & Reading company
are making an experiment at the
Alaska, colliery, Schuyikill county, Pa.,
which means the substitution of ma
chinery for mules in the transporta
tion of coal in the mines and a ~aving,
to this company alone, of several hun
dred thousands of dollars annually in
the cost of mining.
The machine experimented whh is
an air compressor, which furnishes the
motive power to haul the coal from the
.gangways and breasts to the bottom of
the slope. The first trial was a success,
gratifying to both the inventor and the
company. Within six months it is un
derstood these machines will be placed
in all the mines of the Philadelphia &
Reading company and in all the other
mines operated by the smaller com
panies in the Schuylkill coal county
region. The new method of transport
ing coal under ground, it is said, re
dices the cost about one-half.
Mli~ n mules are always kept in ex
cellent condition. From 60 to 150 mules
are used in each mine. Many are killed
by accident each month, and of course
have to be replaced.
The new contrivance will prove a se
vere blow to western mule breeders,
as all these animals were purchased at
