Tb Little racket Uoes Dowi la Four Feet
The Rock Island and Clinton pack
et, Verne Swain, ran on a snag
and sank in four feet of water on
Camanche reef at 7:45 this morn
ing. The boat was coming down on her
daily trip, and Pilot Smith being in
disposed. Capt. Streekfus was at the
wheel. At Albany. Pilot Wild took
charge of the steering apparatus.
At Camanche reef the little packet
overtook the rafter, F. C. A. Denk
mann, which was working in toward
the shore with a raft, and in attempt.
Ing to go around it, the Verne ran
upon a snag and a hole five feet
square was stove in her hull aft of
the boiler. She immediately sank in
four feet of water.
The Ienkmann to the Rrarne.
The Denkmann as quickly as pos
sible landed her raft and went to the
rescue of the Verne, taking her pas
sengers back to Albany, where thev
(aught the train on the Milwaukee
road for Rock Island. There was
considerable freight on board, which
will be more or less damaged.
Capt. Streekfus went to Lamb's
boat yard, where he enjrasred the
Everett and pump, and the Verne
will probably be raised by tomorrow
Testimony of Finer Print.
When a finger or a finirer print is
closely examined nnder a lens of only
moderate power, it is seen to alwnnd in
minute peculiarities. These are caused
by tin) branchings of some of the ridjyes,
the sudden appearance of new ones, the
formation ot rimra. or orals, like eve-
leU, and the abrupt stoppage of ridges
without any apparent cause
It is in these countless little peculiari
ties even more than in the general char
acter of the pattern that the valne
of finger prints as proof of identity
lies, for these appearances, however
minute, do not change iu the smallest
particuhir during life, A pattern xuny
be traced on the fingers of the babe
when born; it will be found the same
on those fingers when be baa grown to
manhood and mny be imprinted from
the fingers of tho dead without change
in tho smallest point, thongh a hundred
years should intervene between birth
The pattern grows together with the
finger. Its pniurtiou8 vary with fat
ness or leanness. They may be further
affected by wear, gout or age. But
such changes appear iu the pattern as
a whole, never in the form of correla
tion of its constituent parts. The pat
tern may become altered in length or
breadth by hard wear of a peculiar kind,
but the number of ridges tbat concur in
forming the pattern, their embranch
ments, their arehings, loops and other
minute characteristics, are not subject
to change. They are indestructible as
the finger. All the Year Round.
