Is there lady yet
Under the ton ?
Dmmffl of Olympus
Called down,, one by one
" H a tme lady

Answer came slowly
From hemisphere two ;
Dead seemed the Old World,
And heedless the New.
"I am a lady, then t
See I for 1 wear
Latest of bonnets,
last twist of hair;
French gloves and laces
What more can I need !
Inglvd mighty Juno,
"A lady, indeed!"
" I am a lady born I
I have a name I
An unbroken ancestry
Settles my claim."

"Ah!" Venus exclaimed :
"I wedded a blacksmith,
And waa not ashamed.
What face, bright as Hebes. .

That beautiful maiden

To honor and peace.
My sigh for lost ladies, "
said Venus. "Ie

And pointed to where
In a dreary log school-house,
A girl, young and fair.

Who yet can prefer.

What lady like her ?"
Nodded the sky-women,
Glad, one by one,
" Still there are ladies left
Under the sun.

which came immediately after this Iowa
accident waa one especially remarkable
from the amount of electricity in the air
and the death-roll of victims of lightning
then received several accessions. Not
in one State alone, but wherever the ter
rible storm prevailed there were acci
dents. Near Nashville, Tenn., one John
Mills wns instantly killed and two others
were severely stunned. On the suc
ceeding day four others were struck
down in Nashville, though none were
killed. On the 16th, also, during the
storm at Mflford, O., a child of L. B.
Estum was killed, and two daughters of"
E. Edwards were severely burned by a
stroke of lightning. Other accidents,
none of them fatal, were reported from
various quarters. On June 18, while a
heavy rain storm was passing over Wy-
andotte, Kan., a sudden terrific flash of
lightning occurred, and the discharge
entered a house where a Mrs. Bradish
was engaged in nursing her babe. The
infant at its mother's breast was killed
by the shock, and -the mother herself so
injured that her life was despaired of.
Whether or not the woman eventually
recovered does not appear. Soon after
this sad occurrence a nsi-ipa nf
accidents took place elsewhere. In
Wake county, North Carolina, a woman
bu uai worn was Kiuea Dy lightning, and

Near Florence, S. C, a colored woman

In Georgia a curious lightning stroke
also took place. A doctor of Oliver was
summoned to the bedside of a negro who
had been injured. Upon reaching the
negro, the doctor, to his astonishment,
found him doing well, with the excep
tion of a profuse hemorrhage, issuing
from a comminuted wound of the first
or great toe of his left foot This the
doctor was wholly unable to account for,
especially after searching in vain for
anything that might have given rise to
it, except the electric current itself.
The vamp covering the toes of the shoe
of this foot was torn completely off.
The position of the negro at "the time of
the stroke seems to have been landing
over, with his face on his bed. He says
he had a presentiment of the fact
an hour or no before its occurrence,
and althongh not a Spiritualist yet the
remarkable precautions which ho took
would seem to create the belief that his
presentiment waa real. There were an
axe and two guns near his bed, which
he says were there and gave him no un
easiness during other storms, but on
this occasion he could not resist the im
pulse to move them, fearing the attrac

Subsequent to this in a thunder storm in
Sutherford county, Tenn., one MoWill
iam was killed by lightning, four others
were struck senseless and four were
knocked down, and still later, at Floyd,
Va., Elizabeth Bishop, aged about 13
years, was found dead in George Bish
op's field, near the Floyd and Mont
gomery line. She was found in sight of
the house. She was buried, and subse
quently disinterred and an inquest held
over her body. The jury returned a
verdict of murder, though it was gener
ally believed in the neighborhood that
she was struck by lighbungand killed.
JULY'S FIRST VICTIMS.
In July the mortality and injuries from
lightning strokes increased. On th
Fourth Alexander McMullen of Colum
bus, Ohio, was s trued in the back of the
head. The bolt passed around his body
and down his right leg, stunning and
burning him severely. On the 5th the
lightning tore the siding from the house
of a. M. Jitter, at iiloormngton. ILL
and severely shocked the inmates, and
at Downs, HL, on the same day, the
valuable stallion, Modoc, was killed by
an eiectno aiscnarge. un the same day,
also, at Curran, HL, John Davis. Jr..
aged about 26 years, while attending to
some stock in a field near his house, was
struck Dy lightning and instantly killed.
At Vermillion, Iowa, a Mr. Comes was
struck, but finally recovered from the
effect of the shock. In Knns&H. a Mr.
Weatherill had the contract for carrying
the mail from Hays City to Kir win, via
Stockton, and was driving the coach
when the accident occurred. It appears
that while riding over the divide a storm
came up, when a thunder-bolt struck
him, killing him instantly. He fell
from the coach, bnt the team went to the
crossing of Bone creek and stopped at a
iarm nouse. ine inmates, seeing no
anver, went Dack and found Mr.
Weatherill dead. In the same State.
later, a Mr. Crosby and wife living two
miles east of Uniontown, in this county,
were struck by lightning. They were
standing in the center of the room when
the lightning struck the house, and came
down the chimney-flue, tearing it and
tne stove-pipe to pieces and striking Mr.
and Mrs. Crosby on the lea below the
knee, coming out at the feet lacerating
them in a fearful and painful manner.
Mrs. Crosby was also struck on the left
arm, and so badly injured as not yet to
be able to use it Their little son was
standing in the corner of the room, and
had the hair of his head and hiseye-
urvwu cuiiBuieiaoiy scorcnea.
A SAD OCCURRENCE.
One of the saddest cases of death from
lightning reported is that of an Iowa man
whose regard for others led him into
danger. The lightning in this instance
came from a clear sky. On the afternoon
ol July 15 a Mr. J. H. Boyer, the Post
master and blacksmith of Sloan, a small
station on the Sioux City and Pacific
railroad, near the southern line of Wood
bury county, Iowa, was struck and killed
by lightning. At about 5 o'clock in the
afternoon, at which time not a cloud ob
scured the sky overhead or stood between
the sun and and the town, a terrible flash

'J.he account of a funeral struck by

curred in Brooklyn. The funeral pro
cession of a sea Captain was on its way
to the cemetery in a storm, and one of
the carriages was just depositing its in
mates when two balls of lire seemingly
two feet in diameter dropped just in
front of the horses' heads and burst with
a report like a cannon. At the same
time there was a blinding flash of light

of thunder that made the cemetery hill

dashed against the hearse, and badly
shattered. A young lady on the inside
front seat was thrown out and badly
bruised. The driver could not control
the horses, and they started to run,

Mr. Stephen Green, a colored man
living on Spring street, has been sorely
troupled for months past by a colony of
bed bugs that were in the habit of hold

with Mr. Green for the victim of their
sanguinary feasts. Last week ho came
the conclusion that he would not be a

A TERRIBLE STRUGGLE.
A Child Barely Rescued from the Jaws
of an Alligator.
[From the Handsboro (Miss.) Democrat.]
Last Saturday, about sundown, four
miles east of this place, on Biloxi bay, oc
curred a scene calculated to send a thrill
of horror through every human heart,
and to make even the boldest tremble
with fear. Two little girls, daughters of
Mr. Elam K, Blackwall, living on the
Back Bay of Biloxi, while bathing in the
bay immediately in front of his dwell
ing, were attacked by an enormous alli
gator. The eldest, a girl of about seven
years of age, was holding the vouneost.
an infant of two years, in her hands, and
was quietly enjoying nor Dam, when
suddenly her little sister was snatched
from her, and borne swiftly from the
shore. Terrified beyond measure, and
unable to render any assistance to her
unfortunate sister, the elder girl uttered
a scream which was quickly caught by
the ear of the father, who happened, ac
cidentally, to be passing within 30 or 40
rods of the spot where his daughters
were bathing. Realizing instantly, from
the tone of the voice, that his children
were m some peril, but unable to con
jecture its exact nature. Mr. BlackwelL
who is un active and athletic man, rushed
rapidly to their assistance, and arrived at
the spot just in tune to discover his little
daughter being borne out into the bay
by an alligator. Comprehending the
scene at once, and nerved to almost su
perhuman effort by the desperate situa
tion of his child, the agonized father
leaped madly into the water in pursuit
of the would-be destroyer of his daugh
ter, which was then some 25 or 30 yards
from shore. The water, for a distance
of 40 or 50 yards out into the bay from
the point where the children were bath
ing, ranges in depth from one and a half
to two feet, and men suddenly attains t
depth of 40 or KO fnnf and hnt.h rha ani
mal (which by thin time had discovered
the pursuit) and the father seemed to
realize that, the deep water immediately
in front of them once reached, pursuit
and recovery would be alike impossible ;
both, therefore, redoubled their efforts,
the one to reach the point, the other to
prevent it In this struggle, although
sinking tp his waist in the soft mud at
the bottom at each bound, the father was
successful. He succeeded in grasping
his child by tho arm about ten feet from
deep water. The alligator, which all the
while held the child's foot in its moutb,
perceiving itself overtaken, and alarmed
and confused by the boldness of the as
sault, released its hold, and made its way
rapidly into the deep water in front of
it. The father, completely exhausted,
raised his child ont of the water, and.
perceiving that it'still lived, by desperate
effort succeeded in regaininir tho shore
and depositing the child safely in the
hands of its mother. The little girl is
unhurt with the exception of a couple
of bruises on its foot, made by the teeth

to her friends, who auicklv arose and

tongue in that defiant manner charac

enough to prevent very serious and fear
As quickly as possible the family phy
sician was called in, but he was unable
to arrest the inflammation which in

morning? the lady was very sick. Her
arm was swollen almost as large as the
crown of a man's hat, and the hand
seemed as though it would burst. Every-

The Armed Strength of Europe.
A lecture was recently delivered be
fore the Royal United Service Institu
tion, London, in which a British officer
gave a detailed account of the standing
armies and reserves of all tho nations
of Europe. He said that, looking at
the armies of Europo from every point
of view, the rapidity with which they
urn ue moDuizea, led irom reserves,
concentrated on any point and main
tained on the field, he should divide
them into three classes, in the order of
their strength. The first class com-,
prised Germany. Austria. Russia and
France ; the second, Italy and England ;
the third Belgium, Turkey, Sweden and
Norway, Holland, Denmark, Spain, Por
tugal, Switzerland and Greece. There
are four armies of the first class, two of
the second, and nine of the third, with.
round numbers, a strength on paper
6,500,000 men and a combatant
strength of 5,000,000, with 15.000 guns
and 1,250,000 horses. In navies Great
.Britain is supreme, and then come in
order of strength France, Russia, Tur
key, Anstria, Germany, Italy, Spain,
Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Nor
way and Portugal. Tho navies of all
these have an aggregate of 2,039 vessels,
which 209 are iron-clad, the whole
being manned with 280,000 men and
armed with 15,000 cannons. One hun
dred and ten strips of war are now being
built, and of these fifty-six will be armor
plated. Tho expenses of these forces
amount, according to this lecturer's esti
mates, to $500,000,000 per annum, of
which three-fifths go to the hind forces.

AN ILL WILL.
The Infernal Regions Tapped by a Michigan
Man—His Farm and Crops Ruined by
[Port Huron (Mich.) Cor. Chicago Times.]
Last week, Mr. Joseph Hahn, who
lives three or four miles west of Marine
City, in a small place called Cottreville,
was engaged in sinking an artesian well
for the purpose of supplying his stock
with water, and used for that purpose a
derrick, consisting of three pieces of
timber fastened together at the top, in
the shape of a tripod. This derrick was
fastened by means of a heavy log chain
wound round the timbers at the top, at
tached to which was an auger for the
purpose of boring the well, which was
turned Dy horse-power. The first por
tion of the well, for a distance of twenty
feet, had been carefully bricked up, and
the boring continued from there. The
diameter of the well is thirteen inches,
and on Monday night the augur had
penetrated a distance of 125 feet The
next morning a gas chamber was pene
trated, and upon the removal of the
augur the wooden tubing shot out of the
well, immediately followed by a stream
of gas, water, mud and stones that rose
to a distance of nearly 200 feet in the
air, while the ground shook as if an
earthquake had convulsed it. Stones
weighing from ton to twenty pounds were
projected in the air and fell in all direc
tions, some of them crashing through
the roof of Mr. Hahn's house and barn,
and"oompelling his family to seek an
other habitation. The heavy log-chain
binding the derrick was cut by the flying
missiles into a dozen pieces, and the
farm, upon which a stone could not have
been found previous to this phenomenon,
was literally covered with large and
small ones. The velocity of this dis
charge continued for eight or ten hours
without intermission, when the monster
was found to have spent his fury, and
the stream and noise gradually subsided.
The crops of Mr. Hahn were completely
destroyed by the falling debris and the
streams of water, which ran iu all direc
tions. Many people visited the well,
and many are still coming, and Mr.
Hahn, to restore as nearly as possible
his legs for he is a poor man haa in
closed the well within a rail fence, and
charges the moderate sum of five cents
for the satisfaction of individual curi
osity. The water, still kubbling, may
be seen at a great depth by the aid of a
mirror, wliu h reflects the sun's rays into
its depths. ' Ono remarkable fact is, that
the brick wall of the first twenty feet of
the well is entirely uninjured, and re
mained intact during the great convul
sion. The orifice below, however, is
somewhat enlarged. It is not appre
hended that we will have another erup-

Effects of Arctic Cold on Man.
Lieut Payer, the Austrian Arctic Ex-
Elorer, says the London Medical Record,
as been laying some of the results of his
explorations before the Geographical So
ciety of Vienna. Referring to the in
fluence of extreme cold on the human
organism, he related that on March 14,
1874, he and his companions made a
sledge journey over the Semiklar glacier,
in order to make observations of Francis
Joseph land. One day the cold marked
40 degrees (Reaumur) below zero. Not
withstandirg this intense cold M. Payer
and a Tyrolese went out before sunrise
to make observations and sketch. The
sunrise was magnificent ; the sun seemed
surrounded, as it does at a high degree
of cold, by small suns, and its light ap
peared more dazzling from tho contrast
with the extreme cold. The travelers
were obliged to pour rum down their
throats so as not to touch the edge of
the metal cups, which would have been
as dangerous as if they had been red
hut ; but the rum had lost all its strength
and liquidity, and was as flat and thick
as oil. It was impossible to smoke
either cigars or tobacco in short pipes,
for very soon nothino- hiit a ninnA nf
remained in the mouth. The metal of
the instruments was just like red-hot
iron to the tonch, as were some lockets,
which some of the travelers rnmnnHnallTr
but imprudently, continued to wear next
to the skin. M. Payer says that so great
an amount of cold paralizes the will, and
that under its influence men, from the
unsteadiness of their gait, their stam
mering talk, and the slowness of their
mental operations, seem as if they were
intoxicated. Another effect of cold is a
tormenting thirst, which is due to the
evaporation ofthemoistureofthe body. It
is Unwholesome tonflAOTirrarsi nnonnh f liA
tliirst, as it brings on inflainniation oil the
throat, nalata and fanoma
enough can never be taken to quench
the thirst, as a temperature of thirty de
grees to forty degrees below zero makes
it taste like molten metal. Snow-eaters
in tne North are considered as feeble
and- effeminate, in the same way as an
opium eater in the East The groups of
travelers who traversed the snow fields
were surrounded by thick vapors formed
by the emanations from their bodies,
which became condensed, notwithstand
ing the furs in which the travelers were
enveloped. These vapors fell to the
ground with a sh'ght noise, frozen into
the form of small crystals, and rendered
the atmosphere thick, impenetrable, and
dark. Notwithstoding the humidity
of the air, a disagreeable sensation of
dryness was felt Every sound diffused
itself to a very long distance, an ordi
nary conversation could be heard at a
hundred paces off, while tho report of
guns from the top of high mountains
could scarcely bo heard.
M. Payer explains this phenomenon

character of the securities offered. Govern

The past week has witnessed a decided weak
ness in the grain markets, and a rapid and quite
severe decline in valaes. The markets have
really been "weather markets," and the weak
ness and tliesAibBequontdeclineweredue mainly
to the more settled and finer weather. There
ports received from different eections of the
country indicated more favorable harvests than
had been expected, and the country speculative
element were on the selling side, while
but few buying orders were received.
The Eastern markets were of a less favorable
tenor, and shippers were not disposed to trade
With any freedom, while the stocks in store
are large and rather heavier than usual at this
season of the year. The receipts were moder
ately large. Values have steadily declined
from the opening until the close. As will be

Tho business transacted in butter during the
week was light The princinal reason for the
quietness that prevailed was the scarcity of
buuu ivie no wore uesiroa Dy snippers. The ar
rivals during the week have been light, and
tho supply under a continued good local de
mand was largely reduced. Sealers being
fortunate enough to have lots of butter on
hand were able to obtain a shade better prices,
though only a slight improvement was notice
able. There were Beveral parties on the mar
ket seeking lots of the lower qualities for ship
ment, but the few lots offered were held above
what they were willing to pay, and only a
limited number of transactions were made.
For grain bags and bagging there has been a
good demand and prices ruled firm as follows:
Stark "A" seamless cotton bags, $32.00; Ludlow
"AA," Hontauk "A," Lewiaton "A," and Otter
Creek seamless cotton, $30.00; American "A,"
and Amoskeag, $28.00; woof sacks, 55C0c
each. There was a good demand for broom
com at the following prices: ll14o for
fair to extra hurl. ll13o for good to choice
Btalk braid, and 6(38o for crooked. Beans
were quiet and unchanged, quotable at $1.80
for round lota of Eastern mediums and 1.00(3
1.75 for Western according to quality. Beeswax
remains quiet at 2G(g)28c for primo yellow.
Cheese was not as active as dur
ing the previous week, but former
prices were maintained ; quotable at C8c for
poor to common, 8llo for fair to good, 10
(B10c for prime inlots, and 11c in a retail way.
Currants were quiet at $2.603.00 per bu.
Dried fruits were firm, and for some descrip
tions prices were higher. Eastern apples sold
mainly at 9c per lb. Halves peaches were firm
at 910c, and blackberries closed firm at 9
10c Dried peas were dull at 2.002.10 for
choice green, and $1.G51.75 for marrowfat
The usual dullness again prevailed in eggs, and
prices were irregular ; sales ranged at 10
14c, according to quality, the outside being
for warranted fresh laid. There was no change
from last week noticeable in feathers ; quotable
at 4852o for prime live geese, 20(ff25ofor
turkey tail, and 35c for chicken.
Green fruits were in large supply dur
ing the latter part of the wk, and
prices were easier. Apples sold at 60ct3.50
per brl, and 2040c per box, according to
quality. Peaches were in large supply, and
some arrived in a worthless condition; sales
ranged at 2050c per box for Southern, and
from 10c(S$2.50 for Delaware in ono bushel
boxes. Plums were slow sale, and pears were
also very dull. Grapes sold slowly at 910c
per lb. Hides were quiet but firm, as follows:
88fo for green salted all round, and 1213c
for calf. There was a Blight improvement in
potatoes, but hardly sufficient to be worth men
tioning; sales ranged at 1.001.25 per brl.
Salt was in fair demand and Bteady at $1.50
for Onondaga and Saginaw fine, and $1.70 for
ordinary coarse. Vegetables were dull, but
toward the latter part of the week a slight im
provement was noticeable in tomatoes; sales
ranged at 2565c per box for tomatoes, $2.75
$3.25 per brl for onions, and 810c per doz
for corn. Veal was in fair demand and steady
at 5$4a for common to clioioe carcasses.
The wool market romains dull and unchanged;
quotable at 3843c for fine to prime coarse un
washed, 2833c for do washed, and 4053c
for poor to choice tub washed.
There was a fair active business transacted
in this market during the week just passed, but
prices at the same time ruled somewhat easier.
The outaido orders received were somewhat
lightor than usual, and the principal trading was
done by the local speculative element During
the week the option for October changed from a
premium to a discount, compared with seller
September. Lard was dull and sales dragged
slowly, and a decline of 3040c was sustained
in values. Market closed at $20.8020.90 for
cash mess pork, aooording to brand; $20.75
20.80 seller August and seller September at
$20.75(0)20.80. Cash lard ouiet at13.30rffil3.35.

SEEDS AND HIGHWINES.
There was a moderately active business re
ported in timothy seed, and prices were firm
though without immediate alterations. The
first arrival of new seed was offered on the
market on Saturday, and it being prime in
quality, sola at tei.W, old closed at about $2.80
for prime. Clover was a shado firmer : sold at
$8.Q08.10 for prime medium. Flax was nom
inal at about $1.00 for good crushing. The
other kinds were entirely nominal. The offer

consequence ruled quiet Prices were steady

CLEVELAND The Montana---Arrival of a Marine
[From the New York Herald.]
The new screw steamer Montana, of
the Williams & Onion line, which ar
rived at this port yesterday afternoon
after a passage of about eight days and
a half from Queens town to Bandy
Hook, is, perhaps, tho pioneer of a new
style of ocean-going passenger and
freight steamer. She is clipper bruit,
her sides being smooth, to offer the least
resistance to the water. Her model, de
signed by Mr. Stephen B. Onion, the
managing director of the line and the
Superintendent engineer, is peculiar in
the formation of her ends and her sides,
she having a long, hollow bow, intended
to throw the water off instead of allow
ing it to come aboard the ship, while the
sides are, as nautical men term it, " tum
ble home aides," having a "fall in" of
seven feet on each side from the turn of
the bilge; this formation is calculated to
combine great strength with safety, as
the ship is much easier in a seaway than
the usual model. The following are her
principal dimensions: Length over all,
495 feet; breadth of beam on main deck
45 feet; depth of hold, 33 feet She has
four decks, including the hurricane deck.
She is brig rigged, and can show a large
amount of .canvas when she has her stay
sails and trysail set
Her enthusiastic commander says she
can sail like a witch, and believes he can
beat anything crossing the Atlantic.
She came across working her engines
at three-quarter speed, with an average
of fifty revoluUont. of her screw, which
gave a result of fourteen knots an hour.
With sixty revolutions, it is computed
she would make sixteen knots. Her
engines are of tho direct acting com
pound class, with one high pressure
cylinder inverted, two low-pressure
cylinders horizontal, with surface con
densers. One cylinder is of 60 inches
diameter, and two are of 113 inches,
with 42 inches stroke. The engines are
of 900-horao power nominal, but may be
worked up to 4,200. Her abaft is 23
inches in diameter.
The saloon is situated forward of the
funnel, and is sumptuously fitted. She
can accommodate 72 saloon passengers,
198 in the second cabin, and 1,200 steer
age passengers, and all the modern im
provements have been adopted for their
The Montana on her return trip made
the voyage from Now York to Queens
town in eight and one-half days. '.
Good Boys for Sailors.
A. B. Valentine, who has just erected
a chimney or " stack" over 80 feet in
height, was astonished a few days since
to see a boy on the top of it, and then
drop his hat over the wall and watch its
descent to the ground. Maj. Valentine
immediately inquired into the phenom
enon, and found that his young son
Wells, aged 9 years, and a son of Mr.
M. K. Whitney, aged 11 years, were tak
ing turns in climbing np the inside of
the chimney, and tossing their hats out
of the top. Inside the " stack" there
are iron rods running across the wall on
one side, abut 3 feet apart, and the
youngsters in climbing rp to the dizzy
height, must have swung from one to
the other, catching by their knees. Mr.
Valentine inquired of the boys how
many times they had been np there.
They said they had lost the exact tally,
bnt it was about twenty times apiece 1
