His wife was in the cab acting as fireman, her clothing being covered with a rubber ulster. Every car of the train was filled with passengers. A Delaware, Lackawana and Western passenger train tumbled down a thirty-foot embankment at Tracy's bridge, near Binghampton, N. Y., at 2:15 Friday morning. The cars caught fire and were soon consumed. A man perished in the flames; a half-dozen passengers are probably fatally hurt, and many others were wounded. Most of those who escaped had no covering but their night clothes, and shivered for two hours in the frosty air be fore a relief train arrived.

Prico, Agent. f " Ex-Mayor Carter Harrison, of Chicago, has been visiting Burmah. He says: ''Theebaw is a state pris oner in the Madras country, and the English blacken the poor devil's character so as to justify in the eyes of the world their high-handed act when they took from him his country. I met several intelligent Italians who have been in the coun try for many years. These declare the representations of the English to be calumnies; that Theebaw was not a drunkard, that he was a good hearted, overgrown boy, and that the acts laid to his door as barbari ties were the acts of his ministers in which he had no hand."

C, W. Price, Agent. When Mrs. John L. Sullivan heard the news concerning her hus band's contest with Mr. Mitchell she piously expressed her regret that the latter did not kill him, add ing that Mr,. Sullivan is a great big no good. Considering the fact that she is the wife oi the champion she is probably prejudiced against him, but her remarksj'nevertheless, would assay about 90 per cent truth as the result of a careful "analysis. Topics. How Men Die. If we know all the methods of approach adopted by an enemy we are the better enabled to ward off the danger and postpone the moment when surrender becomes inevitable. In many instances the inherent strength of the body suf fices to enablo it to oppose tho tendency toward death. Many, however, have lost these forces to such an extent that there is little or no help. In other cases a little help to the weakened lungs will make all the difference between 6udden death and many years of useful life. Upon the first symptoms of a cough, cold or any trouble of the throat or lungs, give that old and well- known remedy Boschee's German Syrup, a care ful trial. It will prove what thousands say of it to be, the "benefactor of any home." The channel of the Ohio River five miles above Steubenville is said to be completely blocked with sunk en coal-barges. Over 400,000 bush els of coal are being scoured by the muddv waters. A combination of recklessnpss and stupidity appears responsible for this mishap, which makes the situation serious not only for boats attempting to stem the stream, but for the towns below waiting for fuel supplies. High water is the only way out of the present difficulty. Sore throat may be cured in a few hours by ap plying Chamberlain's Pain Balm when the first symptoms appear. If the case is a bad one, thoroughly saturate a flannel bandage with it and apply to the throat. Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy shoukl.be taken internally and a cure is cer tain. Solely C.

The narrow margin of Democratic safe ty in that state is made still narrow er by the return to the republican ranks of thousands of temperance republicans who have been acting temporarily with the prohibitionist organization; and that man is a fool who cannot foresee the inevitable result of any attempt to force upon the democrats of this great manu facturing and1 protectionist state a free trade platform and a free-trade candidate.

Below we print an extract from the National Tribune which gives a clear statement of facts. Read it, young men, and remember that one man out of every nine of that great army laid down his life while in the service to make-it possible for you to live in this free country; read it, and when an old soldier passes you on the street on crutches or other wise wounded remember that he was the unlucky one out of every ten that stood up in the front rank of that great army to save this na tion. "There were in all reduced to a three-years standard 2,320,272 men in thev service of the United States during the war. These men in four years fought the unprece dented number of .2,261 battles and skirmishes, and nearly- 50 of these were battles in which the fighting and slaughter were greater than is customary in the great battles of Europe Which have decided cam paigns and wars. Of the men who enlisted, 184,713 or more than a great European army were actually killed on the field of battle, to say nothing of those who went to the hospitals or their homes to die, and nearly 200,- 000 died of disease. In all, 400,000 of the young men who formed this great host perished during the great struggle. One man in every 60 was killed on the field of battle. One in every 56 died of wounds received. One in every 13died of disease. One in every 9 died while' in the service. One in every 10 was wounded. This is an aDDalliner array of losses unprecedented in the history of wars.
