the big stt,el whaleback steamer

cause is the scale paid the runners and

At tin state convention of operators

part of the miners that it be arbi
trated, no agreement being reached at
the district meeting.
The operators chose as arbitrators
Fred W. I.ukins. of Vlrden. and A. A.
Moorhead. of Divernon. and the min
ers I-Mward Cahill and II. R. Sinters.
A failure on their part to settle caused
the chosing of a fifth. Rev. C. A. P.nr

arbitrators was still unsatisfactory to
the men and they went out on strike.
The Operators association will take

a movement for the permanent estab

promoters call one of the most unique
educational institutions in the coun

and social life met at the residence of
Alram S. Hewitt and R. Fulton Cut

organization for establishing, experi
mentally, a sellout where the practice
as well as the theory of farming could
be taught. Professor George T. Powell,
a recognized authority on scientific ag

of the school.

Three Person Given Terrible Wounds,

Cleveland. June !. While some wild
animals were being transferred from
railway cars to cages here Saturday
Herman Wedder entered the cage of
a big bear which received him with a
swipe of his great paw, knocking him
to the lloor, where the bear pounced
uiKMi him and fastened his teeth into
his right leg. tearing off so large a
chunk as to make necessary, surgeons
say. the amputation of the injured
limb. Madame Morelli entered her cage
of leopards, was received in a simliar
manner to Wedder, only that one of
her peis leaped upon her shoulder and
attendants came to her assistance, and
with pikes drove the spotted beast off.
Lion tamer. McPhee. was watching
the transfer of the lions from the car
to their cage, and because they refused
to move promptly he entered
the cage. He had hardly en
tered before a great beast
leaped upon him. pinning him to the
floor. The lion placed his great paws
upon the fallen man's breast and tore
his right leg in a fearful manner, the
tendons being pulled from the bone.
The eeff'cts of thoattendants to drive
the lion oil' with pikes had no effect,
and seemed only t' Infuriate him the
more, for he quickly pushed his big
jaws and sharp teeth into McPhee's
abdomen ami when he released his
hold the trainer's abdomen was torn
so greatly that his entrails were in
sight. The lion was finally driven off
and McPhee removal from the cage,
more dead than alive. He was removed
to an Improvised hospital arrangement
and physicians who were called say
that he is surely fatally injured.
