Minneapolis, Oct. 15. "Has the
rr:ir of Russia been skillfully
poisoned by nihilists, ami is now un-iler-ruin;!
a lingering death?" Such
is the purport of advices received
from St. Petersburg by Dr. George
Von Sachroidt, an officer of the Prus
sian army on leave now here on his
way to Japan. These advises are
secret . the translation of which he
furnished the Associated Press, says
the czar is lying at the point of
death. The excitement throughout
K'.issia is simply tremendous, bc
raiiw it is understood in a wide cir
cle that his sickness was brought
ntxiut by scientific means. In higher
circles the opinion is divided with
regard to the succession. .
The ezarowich is inclined to make
radical reforms and is a great friend
of (rvrniany. The clergy of the
tlreek church and pan Slavic party
liate him, and the patriarch of Mos
cow has been traveling with the czar
ncieavoring to persuade him to de
clare his second son his successor.
This nmy lie taken as a direct insult
to (iertuany, as he is very inimical to

Tho Eust Louisiana train, currying ex
cursionists to points in Saint Tammany
parish, was booming along its tracks, anil
with a shrill shriek from its whistle for
"down brakes" it crushed into the sixth
'conch of tho Louisville and Xashville train.
The collision threw a crowded coach com
pletely into tho ditch, while the attacking
engine was derailed and buried its nose
several feet in tho soft mud. Passengers
on the East Louisiana train were unin
jured except for the shock of the collision.
Not so with tho coast excursion, however.
Just before tho iron monster struck the
coach several of the passengers saw it coin
ing and a panic ensued.

' There was a wild rush to .escape from
tho doomed coach, but In-fore one of the
passengers could reach either platform
the approaching engine had struck and
th couch with its living freight was
hurled from the tracks into tiio ditch,
women and children shrieked in their ter

for some csouite from the coach. Seats
were torn up and hurled in every direc

RUTLAND, Vt., Oct. 15. Ada Mitchell,
who made a bulUxin ascension from this
city last week, has returned. She alighted
on Rochester mountain, twenty-six miles
distant, after a remarkable and perilous
voyage. The wind was blowing a gale
when she started, and by some means she
lost two of her three bags of lmlhist just
after leaving the ground. The result was,
she says, that she shot upward at the rate
of a mile a minute, and in a twinkling
was 4,(XX fiiot alxivo sea level and in col
lision in a dense mass of clouds with a
Says the fair balloonist: "I had no
sooner entered the clouds than the car be
gan to toss and lungo frightfully in the
cross currents. The wind seemed to blow
from several directions at once. Suddenly
I was In the midst of a whirlwind of great
violence. The balloon turned first ono
way nnd then the other. It pitched and
swayed until I thought that I should lose
my hold. More than this, it was terribly
cold and a damp chill seemed to creed
into my bones, numbing my hands until
there was no feeling in them. I do not
know how long I was in tho cyclone. It
was not more than a few seconds, proba
bly, but it seemed an age."
Then with a lurch that threw the last
bag of ballast out the balloon shot into
still air, 8,001) feet above the earth. Shortly
afterward the balloon passed through an
other storm, and Miss Mitchell thought it
was time to comedown. So she oiened
the . valve, and as the gas escaped the
balloon fell. Passing through the clouds
again another cyclone was encountered,
and the car was nearly turned upside
down, thoroughly frightening tho fair
teronaut. She not through safely, how
ever, and landed without injury in the top
of a pine tree on one of the most desolate
of the Green mountains. She suyg she

tangling alliances with foreign powers.
Acknowh-dgemcnt is made of the truth in

desirability of tho restoration of pi-aco,
etc., but in tho polite language of diplo

has so far thrived very well attending to
its own business, and that so long as it
continues to prosper by that policy it will
not depart from it.
