DANGERS OF THE DEEP.
Story of a Castaway—Terrible Picture of
Suffering and Starvation.
on their- backs, with their longing faces
T T . rt .1 ; ,,,1 flna
The story of the sufferings of Anto
nio : Maximo, ' the only survivor of the
crew of.-thebark U'oronto, recently
wrecked in the West Indies, is almost
too horrible for belief. . Maximo .was
picked up - by. the brig- Centaur and
brought to ; ,&ew 7 York. , .He. Btates
that the Toron to was a bark which sailed
from Qlasgowj SooHand,: about four
months ago with a ehrgo of ooal. . There
were fourteen men on board. .The name
of the first mate was Smith. This was
the only- name 'Max imo could remember.
From Glasgow ..they sailed to Madeira,
the. voyage taking a month and a half.
From Iviadeira '-'they ' proceeded to Na
ivassa, an Jsland in- the West Indies,
-where they took, on board a cargo. Soon
after' leaving Navassa, a furious storm
arose, and they buoved to anchor. At
abont 11 o'clock at sight the foremast
broke off quite, close to the, deck.
They cut? " away - the mast, and, an
'hour after, tbe mid-mast gave way, leav
ing only the mizzen-mast. The Captain
was below sleeping, at the time, and-ohe
of: tbe- men,' - aweoverthg land dose Dy,
called out to. the. first- mate (Smith),
"Look i There's the land !" What land
his wasi' Maxime did not know. The
Captain was then called and ordered a
boat to be lowered. - mere were toiree
boats, but one was sufficient to carry all
the crew. ., Ttye sea. was running mgn at
the time, and the storm raged furiously.
One of Uio boats wad-pot Out and the
Captain and ore w all, got into it., .It was,
however, immediately filled with waterj
OUU OCVCll VA Lll.J aii.aa " v.i u " 'J.v
into .the sea,, and. the viblenee of the
waves soon carried the boat out of the
sight of them. There were then seven:
rnen m the boat, bnt no ' provisions.
Maximo OTuld give no intelligent aocotnlt
of how tliey fared, in the boat ; but ar
far as could be asccrtninod, they drifted
for davsrwithout food and witiout water.'1
Water was obtained by spreading a saii'
during rains ana neavy aews at mgut
The boat, which is on the Centaur.shows
where it has been scratched by the men,
as one of Uie sailors on board suggested,
for the purpose of eating the dirt that
clung to the sides. The sufferings of the
man mi. at hnvA heen intense. Maximb

i dnred. iumDed into, .the sea. Some lay

hv ,:on thiv threw themselves in-
r' 7, ii i
to ..Hie; isea, . or iwere- uiruwii oy
their companions, until all had been
lost but himself. From this man's ac
count, it is clent- that the men, lost their
reason. He ate seaweed to sustain life.
He caught a sea bird occasionally und
sometimes a nsn, but here nis reason
seems to have, wandered. He says he
was twenty-live days in. the boat, bnt
cannot tell now ne measured uie time.
When found "by the' Centaur, the boat
was driftni2 helDlesfilT along, witn flian-
mo running . against the side, his head
leaning over his bosom. . . He could not
speak nor move. They hoisted him
into the vessel by means of a rope, and
by slow degrees ha recovered. . Some
birds were, found on board the boat,
which was also taken on board. Maximo
is now well enough in health, and does
not seem unintelligent. ' He tells his
storv with an evident desire for truthful
ness, but on' important questions he
very deficient. -: . .. . . -'

Chicago's Grain Elevators.
Chicago is the biggest grain mart in
the world, and handles abont 90,000,000
bushels annually. How this vast amount
is received, stored and shipped, is the
subject of an interesting article in the
Chicago Times. The first steam elevator
was established in the spring of 1848,
with a canacitv of 100.000 bushels. To
day Chicago has eighteen steam eleva
tors, with a : combined capacity of
15,350,000 bushels, -or more than the
average product of 1,000,000 acres of the
fertile wneac-proancing lanas oi tne con
tinent. Their capacity varies all the way
from 200,000 bushels to 1,500,000.- The
entire cost of the eighteen elevators now
in operation was about $5,000,000, ex
elusive of the' grounds on which they
stand. Add for this 81.000.000. and the
result shows $6,000,000 invested in this
industry. The two great firms of Ar
mour, Pole & Co. and Manger, Wheeler
& Co. handle more than one-nan tne

Herculean Feat of Strength.
Our modem Goliath, John J. Lucas,
has outrivaled himself. Mention has
been made heretofore in these oolnmns of
his wonderful faculty of lifting heavy
weights, but on Tuesday night last he
excelled all previous efforts. In presence
of a score of reputable witnesses, at the
Eentchler Drill Works, he fairly and
squarely lifted on a pair of scales a net
weight of 2,700 pounds ! This incredible
feat he accomplished by aid of a stout
belt and shoulder straps, with iron rods
attached to the framework of the scales,
securely connected with the harness.
It is claimed Dy some mac mang ui
this manner is a very different matter
from that of raising a dead weight, but
we have yet to see the athlete who can
lift, under the same oonditiona, more
than one-third of the load elevated by
Mr. Lucas. Belleville III.) Advocate.
The Chicken Trade.
An " eccentric " negro has just ended
his career at Erie, Pa., and his manner
of life is illustrated by the way in which
he raised market stuff : " une morning
he came along with his basket, went up
to a stand where a huckster was selling
dressed Tjoultrv. picked up a pair of
chickens when the owner was not look
ing, chucked them in his basket, and set
it down, tben deliDerateiy picnea up an
other and inquired the price. Being
told he remarked, with apparent die-'
pleasure, I won't pay that much. Why,
look here, holding up the basket with
the two he had taken from tne dealer in
it, 'I got them up here for a great
deal less.' 'Well, said the man, you
will have to go there then ; I can t sell
them so,' and off walked our hero with

THE NATION'S WARDS.
Thirty Millions a Year Paid to Soldiers,
Widows and Orphans.
H. M. Atkinson. CommisBioner of Pen
sions, has completed his annual report to
the Secretary of the Interior. It shows
that tbe number of pensioners added to
the rolls during the last fiscal year was
11,557. and the number dropped bv rea
son of death, re-enlistment, remarriage,
expiration of minors' pensions, failure to
apply within three years, or the discov
ery of fraud, was 12,977, making a net
decrease of 1,420. The number of pen
sions increased was 15,561. The total
number of pensioners borne upon the
rolls June 30, 1875, was 234,821, by
classes as follows: :
Army invalids ' . . ll.47K
Army widows snd dependent relatives.. KM.rxl
Services of the War of 1K12 ir.,K75
Widows of ao-diera of the War of 1812. 5,1611
Navy invalids. i.fcs;
Navy widows and 'dependent relatives. l,7tl
Of the widows of Bevolutionarv sol
diers, 13 who were married prior to tho
year 1800 and 366 married subsequent to
thac date are still on the rolls. They,
with 1,009 half-pay widow pensioners,
aie embraced in the class, "Army widows
ana dependent relatives, xhe invalid
roll continues to increase, and, notwith
standing its losses, numbered 3,021 more
on the 30th of June, 1875, than. at the.
close of .the preceding year, and for tho
first time since 1863 exceeded the roil of
widows and dependent relatives. . Its in
crease largely counterbalances the losses
to the other rolls, and makes the decrease
of the aggregate roll comparatively small.
Its annual rates are also steadily increas
ing. In 1871, the average rate of pen.
sion paid to the army invalid pensioners
annually was $89.18; in 1872, $90.26; in
1873, $96.46; in 1874, $98.14; and 1875,
$103.91, or $8.65 per month. The rates
vary from $1 to $50 per month. The in
crease in these rates increased the aggre
gate annual amount of the whole roll
during the year $44,733.13, although it
had lessened in number, and the rates
of tho-widovrs' toll had been largely re-
duoed by the expiration of minors' pen
The total disbursements of the Pension
Bureau daring the last fiscal year were
$29,683,116.63,' leaving a balance from
the appropriations of $371,883.31, which

inal applications for army aud navy in
valid pensions and 17,111 claims for in
crease of the same class were received,
and J933 claims have been 'withdrawn
from the rejected files and reopened upon
additional evidence. At the dose of the
year there remained upon the pending
tiles 32,228 original and 6,722 increase
claims of this class. It is estimated that
by the fourth day of December next
there will be filed in this office 12,500 .

Of the soldiers who served sixty day 8
in the war of 1812, 1 per oent. have been,
pensioned under the act of Feb. 14, 1871.
Including the widows of such soldiers
pensioned, the proportion is 9 per cent.
Of the number of claims filed under this
act, 19 J per cent, have been rejected be
cause the period of service did not equal
the number of days (sixty) prescribed by
the act. The number of soldiers who
served sixty days or more during the war
of 1812 was 296,916; the number who
served less than that time was 232,738.
During the fiscal year 1,530 claims were
investigated by the special agents of the
Bureau. The amount of saving to be
credited to this service during the past
year was as follows:

son velvet, and superb Aubusson car
pet was placed over the steps. Tbe walls
were almost covered with mirrors, and
the whole staircase was an avenue of
choice flowering plants. The hall in
which dinner took place is abont 130
feet long by 50 feet wide. The gallery
which runs all around it is supported by
forty-four Caryatides, in wbite marble,
and of very considerable artistic merit.
The ceiling is oovered and richly orna
mented with bassi retevi in stucco and
gilding. From the ceiling hang, by huge -oords
covered with yellow drapery,
eighteen largo chandeliers of , yellow
crystal. The room is lighted by alto
