. The doctrine of chances is noexplainable,
for it has never been satisfactorily formu
lated. -Each believer in "luck" has his own
kleas as to the way in which the goddess of
fortune is to be propitiated and his own the

time. The sailor who stuck his head through
an aperture in the ship's side made by a can
non shot and cried, "Now I'm safe; no
bloomin' ball will follow the first one through
this hole," was superstitious in the same de
gree with the person who believes that light
Ding will not strike twice in the same spot,
or thnt a district once swept by a tornado is
a good one for residence, because it has "paid
its debt" and will not be ravaged a second
If "chance" in the abstract, and applied to
the freaks and accidents affecting localities or
communities, is inexplicable, in detail and
having to do with individual cases its varia
tions become absolutely bewildering. A
glance book over the history of tornadoes in
this country will show that in many instances
the cautious and forewarned have suffered
seriously, while their reckless neighbors or
even helpless infants have come from out the
torrent of the tempest unscathed. A case in
point is that of a man who kept a saloon in
Louisville at Eighteenth street and Broad
way, lie had read the warning bulletin of
the signal service which preceded the recent
tornado and "felt it in his bones" that the
city was going to be in the track of the tem
pest. He sought a place of safety in the cel
lar early iu the eveuing, while bis bartender
continued at work on the floor above. When
tlie crash came John Thome, the bartender,
was standing at the door. The wind seized
upon him and be was carried as far as Maga
eine street, escaping with severe bruises. The
saloon fell into the cellar, and the proprietor
was crushed to death.
Incidents of a similar nature, at least so
far as the escapes are concerned, cluster
about the record of the disaster at Mount
Vernon, Ills., in February, l"$tS. The per-
MAiy STREET, LOOKING WEST,
sonal experiences of niany people were strange
and almost incredible. Some were well shel
tered from the storm at one moment, and the
next stood in ruins, but uninjured. This was
the case with a Mr. Russell and his friend.
Tbey saw the tornado approaching. An In
stant later the house seemed to make a jump
and they were thrown to a corner. There
was a crash and the air grew black and full
of missiles. The men crouched low until the
storm passed. Then they saw Mrs. Year wood
and two others standing in the middle of the
floor, the bouse having been lifted from over
them and set down to the north. From under
the debris came the cries of a babv,--T'ne
storm had tilted and crushjyi -fh2twi .nri
thrown themjttlressver the child. It was
r taSW-ewimSnl armed.
Other strange adventures are related in
connection with the ML Vernon catastrophe.
A man at the electric plant was lifted up,
carried for two blocks, whirled in every direction-,
and set down without being Injured.
One house was moved ten feet from its foun
dation and its occupants did not fool the jar.
Another house was raised in the air and fell
back upon its original support. The wind
dipped into a cistern on the east side of the
Commercial hotel, scooped op the water,
leaped over the east end of the tavern and
smashed the west extension to fragments.
Six miles from the town the roads were after
wards found to be simply covered with
clothes. Petticoats hung on the trees. Coats
and trousers lay buried under heaps of leaves
and hats dangled from the ends of branches.
The forest resembled nothing so much as
THE IHPROVIKED MORGUE.
an old clothes shop. From the ruins of one
of the bouses a resident heard the rolco of bis
daughter. Seizing his ax he chopped a pas
sageway through the timbers, and she stepped
oat of her prison without so much as a
scratch upon her body. The girl was lying
under the floor, which had been partly torn
from the foundations, and was pinned down
In a narrow place between two large pieces
of timber. She had abandoned all hope when
her father came to her rescue.
In April, 187, near Fort Scott, Can., the
tornado carried a year old child 100 yards
and left it lying on the ground uninjured.
The subsequent torrent of rain caused three
iires, due to heat generated in lime where
buildings were being erected or repaired.
In August, 18SJ, several Baltimore mem
bers of the North Point Ducking club were
at their club house on the Patapsco river,
near the mouth of Stony creek. A gust of
wind shook the bouse, but there was no rain
fail. A daughter of Mr. Ounther, the keep
er, ran from the place and called to the
guests to come out and look at a threatening
cloud. Two minutes later the large brick
chimney, twenty-five feet in height, fell and
crashed through the roof. Then a large ap
ple tree nearly two feet in diameter blew
over on the club house and completely de
molished it and the four bedsteads and other
' furniture it contained. Had the visitors re
mained in the house they would certainly
have been killed. Mr. Guntber was engaged
in hauling large logs with a yoke of oxen to
repair damage done by a former storm to the
The oxen were attached to the under side of
an Tile supported by two wheels. A tie, logs
and oxen were turned completely over by the
blast, and Ounther was rolled a long distance
In the mod, receiving a number of scratches
and bruises. The oxen were on hart, and
after sighting the vehicle the Journey to the
wharf was resumed. At Still Pond the same
tornado that wrecked the club bouse killed
eleven people, but in Anne Arundel county,
near Baltimore, it confined its fury to the up
rooting of large trees and the smashing of
thousands of ripe watermelons.
. The tail of a cyclone struck Salem, Mass.,
in Septembrr, 18881 A Democratic banner
swung from a rope made fast to two chim
neys. Under the strain of the flapping flag
one of the chimneys gave way and knocked
down a huge joist The joist fell to the side
walk and hit and smashed to bits a coupe
standing in front of a bank. The occupant
was uninjured. The horse tried to run away,
but the ralyards of the flag tangled about his
neck and soon brought him to a standstill.
In August, 188S, at Wilmington, DeL, a
hone was blown from its hitching post into
an ice house fifty feet away. The animal
was uninjured, but the carriage was reduced

of the phases of the recent great catastrophe

A Ilold Stroke for a Fortune.
Dr. Harrison Waener. of V.;liiii.-t.-.n is
either of unsound mind or one of the most
daring scoundrels of the age. He is now
under indictment at Stafford Court House,
Va. He is charged with forging a bond for
the payment of $t,5t,K75.sc;, purporting to
have been signed by William B. llinsmoro as
president of the Adams Express company.
This bond he filed at Stafford Court House,
secured a writ, and bad it served on the local
ageutof the company. DiiLHUiore has been
dead for some time, and Wagner's object was
to secure judgment on the boud, which would
stand good against the alleged debtor com
pany for twenty years, and which at some
later date might be collected for want of evi
dence showing the frauJultut grounds oo
which it was granted.
Tragic Suicide of m Dnrrtcd Woman.
Suicide iu any form is a horrible thing to
contemplate, but occasionally it has features
which carry its ghastiiness almost beyond the
limits of belief. This was so in the case of
Mrs. Mary Giles, who killed herself recently
in a New York tenement house. The woman
had been deserted by her bus baud and was
undoubtedly crazed with grief and anxiety.
She drove her children from the room, locked
the door aud set about her frightful work.
As a preliminary and to prevent outraged
nature finding vent in cries, she cut off her
tongue. Then she severed the left band from
the arm and calmly watched the life blood
ebb out upon the floor. When discovered she
was nearly dead, and expired almost imme
diately after being taien to a hospital.

MayJfhe witnesses deposed to seeing him

gray haired but festive widow and a homely
chambermaid. The only woman he seemed
nn willing to kiss was his wife. For this rea

and beat her every day, Mrs. Denizot de
mands a divorce.
A Famous lawyer's Downfall.
Dr. Edmund Markbreiter was one of the
most celebrated criminal lawyers at the Aus
trian bar. He demanded and received enor
mous fees for his services and could easily
have lived a life of luxury and good repute.
But he took to gambling, and the green cloth
swallowed up sums far in excess even of his
handsome income. Now he is an embezzler
and a fugitive, biding somewhere in the
United States, and with officers on bis track.
Whatever moral Markbreiter's downfall con
tains is fully apparent.
At Uyeno park, Tokio, Japan, a most in
teresting exhibition is now in progress. It is
a display of the products of the Japanese em

Two Young Bloods Fight a Mill for a
LocgJ-onT, N. Y., May 0. Burt Irice
and Allle Willard, two young bloods of
this city, fought five rounds Wednesday
night with four-ounce gloves. The fight
settled a dispute over a young lady friend,
to whom the young men had linen paying
attention. The young men were thorough
ly angry and pummeled each other vi
ciously. Price knocked Willard down in
the first round by an underhand cut that
dozed him. "
Mot According to the Cuili.
Willard got Price down in the third
round and punched bis ribs until be was
dragged off by the seconds. The fifth and
last round resulted in favor of Willard,
who landed on Price's nose, knocking him
down and drawing the claret profusely.
The condition of the fight was that it went
to the one who drew first blood. The bat
tle was fought in the private apartments
of Charles Carries, a prominent young so
ciety man. Price and Willard shook
hands after the fight and were spirited
away in carriages to their homes.
