HOW GEN. jORDON DIED.
THE STORY TOLD BY ONE WHO
WAS AN EYE WITNESS.
A Onk Who Saw tha Cowardly Murder
mi ttva Engllaa Hero at tha Fall of
Kliartoam BafuslDS; to Bar Htmaeli
by Flight Traacherons Far! a;.
Tha ma Q from Saakim brings dispatches
from Gen. Orenfell, among which it the lat
est, and this time the absolutely authentic,
aooount of the last hours of Gordon, the
hero of Khartoum, whose lonely tomb In the
center of Soudan is now reuerated, even by
the MahdTs followers as that of a saint
The account, which has been ooilected with
various documents and reports and officially
declared to be true, is furnished by Dimetrio
Georglo, a Greek, who recently arrived at
Suaiclm from Khartoum. Georgio was born
at Berber, "and was present at the capture
and sack of Khartoum. Here is bis story as
told to Gen. Grvnfell:
8MOKIXO A CIOaAETTB.
I was at Khartoum the night it was taken.
The NQe bad gone back so that part of the
lty was open. Geo. Gordon did not con
struct fresh trenchos and ramparts, because
.he thought there were sufficient troops there,
9,000, 1 think. The gaps and all. round about
were held by a large force under Fartg Pasha.
That night Farig moved his troops, especially
the blacks, from the gaps, saying the soldiers
were wanted son the other side. Gordon had
perfect "ounfldenee in Farig. The attack took
place at two points. At the largest gap there
was no resistance. If the British army, or
even a few of them, had arrived even one
hour before the attack the place would not
have been taken and Gordon's troops would
have fought to the last. Farig bad sent word
to the Mahdl: "Unless you attack to-night all
is lost" That night all was blood and flames.
The city had passed over from the command
of Gordon to the Mahdi. It was a dire and
dreadful night I shall remember it to
my dying day. The air echoed with hor
rible shrieks, yells, lamentations, wail
ing and smell of blood. I had three friends,
Greeks. I hastened to rescue them. I
had two Mahdwt uniforms given me by an
Arab friend. One I gave to one friend, put
ting on the other myself. It was n earing
daybreak when I took my friends to my
bouse. Some Arabs rushed in telling me I
ought to go to the government house at once,
as all the groat officers of the Mahdi had gone
there to kill Goi-don Pasha. When they saw
my third friend had no Mahdi uniform on
they slew him. We were then taken into
the court yard. I saw Gordon Pasha smok
ing a cigarette on the balcony facing the
river. ' We bad entered at the back of the
palace, entering at the yard where the syca
more tree is. Georgio Piinetrio, the princi
pal medical officer of the Soudan and the
provinces, and Nicala Lemiadit, the Greek
oonfttl, were with him. Five hundred der
vishes, who had been sent by the Mahdi with
special orders to take Gorduu alive, stood at
the foot of the stairca.se. I went up stairs,
being sent by the men below, who were vo
ciferating "Gordon Paha!" Gordon coolly
left the balcony.
BTAXSINO BY VIS POST.
Hy," said the other two, "while there is
yet time. Go in at t ho little door and take
"Shall I fly and leave my post r Gordon re
plied, indignantly. "That, indeed, would be
disgrace. I shall not fiy."
He then went into his inner room And
donned his full uniform and sword. Then be
came out and grandly drew himself up to his
full height On his visago was a look of
"Whom seek yeT he asked, on gazing at
the sea of angry faces of the dervibhes.
"Gordon Pasha," they cried.
"You want him, do you) I am he. Come
up hither," Gordon replied.
On being again urged by Dimetrio and the
Greek consul to fly, Gordon replied: "For
name I Would you have me abandon my
Be could easily have escaped at the rear.
Then, as Gordon stood boldly facing the der
Tiahsa, several superior Mahdist generals

They ascended the stairs and asked for
the pasha. Gordon met them, saying, "I am
he," and handed them his sword in the mili
tary fash inn, intimating that he knew they
bad taken the place, and that consequently
he surrendered according to the usages of
war, but Nassas, one of the generals,
latched hold of his sword, at the same
time, la a brutal and most cowardly manner,
striking Gordon an unexpected blow. The
pasha would have fought desperately had he
thought he would not have been treated in
an honorable manner. He fell, rolling down
the stairs. As he roiled another general
speared him on the left side, inflicting a
Thus died Gordon. I was there, a specta
tor to the ghastly deed, and got out of the
way when he rolled down to the bottom of
the stairs. Some say Gordon was cut up to
little pieces, but others relate that they em
balmed his body and took it to the Mahdi.
There were some bodies cut up, but I am in
clined to believe these were the bodies of the
consul and the doctor. London To! 'gram.

I heard a sweet voice singing
In the blending; of the twilight
And I felt my heart strings vibrate
As It sounded pure and clear:
And I thought how Uke to hearen
Is music to moo given
To alleviate their sorrows
With angel voices near.
The heart may droop with sorrow
For one we loved departed.
But hope oomes on the morrow
And wipes away the tear.
Than music, softly stealing;
Around our hearts, Is healing
Tbe wound that death is dealing
To those we love ao dear.

A Minister Slncnlar Predicament.
An Incident of a peculiar nature occurred
in the Dennistoun Free church, Glasgow,
during the morning service on Sunday. The
Rev. Dr. Stewart, before commencing bis
discourse (Daniel v, 84) asked the indulgence
of the congregation. He said that hs had
carefully prepared his sermon, but that
within the last half hour his memory had be
come a complete blank. He could not ac
count for it in any way, as otherwise he felt
in perfect health. It was the first time dur
ing a ministry extending over a period of
eight-and-twenty years that he bad appeared
before his congregation with an apology for
not being in a position to deliver his discourse.
He had notes with him, but not being in the
habit of reading his sermon he was unable to
see bow he would be able to get through ii,
The Rev. Doctor thereafter proceeded to read
from his notes, but it was observed that he
was very much embarrassed. At the con
clusion the doctor remarked that he felt bet
ter, and asked tbe congregation to join with
htm la praying that the affliction with which
he had been so suddenly visited might be
speedily removed. It need hardly be men
tioned that tbe incident created a profound
sensation among tbe congregation. Pall Mall
Aa Honored Actor.
David Garrick, the most familiar of dra
matio names, who was pronounced by his
contemporaries as an "actor who never had
an equal and would never have a rival,"
spent Christmas of 17TS at Aithorpe, on a
visit to Lord Spencer. While there he had a
severe fit, from which he only recovered suf
ficiently to return to London, where he died
on the 80th of January, 1770, in his own
house. In his 63d year. Dr. Johnson declared
that Garrick's death eclipsed the gayety of
nations. His remains lay in state, with great
pomp, and were attended to their last resting
place in Westminster Abbey by twice as
many coaches as were present at the funeral
of Lord Chatham, the minister, who bad
added Canada to the British empire. Edmund
Burke was one of the mourners, having come
from Portsmouth expressly to attend the
great actor's obsequies. The life of Garrick
is the history of the stage and literature of
the middle of the Eighteenth century. The
idol of theatregoers, the pet of society, the
companion of philosophers, statesmen and
men of letters, it had seldom been the fortune
of any other man to fill so large a space ia
the world purely by dramatic talents.
Be Snw Oliver Optic.
A 10-year-old youngster was curled up on
a sofa in the parlor of Haynes' hotel Thurs
day evening, deeply interested in one of "Oli
ver OpticV tales, when a portly, white
whiskered man strolled into the room, and,
stopping before the little fellow, asked him
what he was reading. "A boss book," was
the reply, "and Td like to know the feller
that wrote it" Taking the volume from the
boy's hand, a quiet smile played around the
stranger's mouth as he looked at the title.
After some further conversation it was
agreed between the two that, on condition
the little fellow promised to be good one long
year and to mind his mother promptly, he
sLould be given a glimpse of "Oliver Optic."
It was further agreed that the youngster,
after waiting five minutes, should pull aside
the curtains in an adjoining room, and there
he should behold bis hero. After tbe allotted
time tbe boy crept to the curtains, and peep
ing behind them saw his good natured white
whiskered friend in the recess. It was some
time before the boy could be made to believe
that was "Oliver Optic," or W. T. Adams,
which is the author's real name. Springfield
The worth of a good shoe salesman ia al
ways readily recognized. Many salesmen in
retail dry goods houses have to content them
selves with salaries ranging from $10 to (15
per week, while shoe salesmen command all
the way from f 15 to $25 per week. As a fair
Illustration, one of the leading local retail
shoe stores pays three salesmen $:J5 each a
week, three 123, four $30 and one $15, which
is the lowest price paid for experienced men.
The trials and tribulations of a retail shoe
dealer and bis clerks are unquestionably
greater than those in other branches of trade.
