from the eastward, but had so moderated
that no attention was paid to it. At 6.30

The signal service reports the rainfall for
twelve hours ending at 7 o'clock Sunday
morning at 7.86 inches. The total for the
twenty-four hours was S.50 inches. The
highest velocity of the wind observed was
sirty miles an hour at 6 o'clock on the
evening of the 19th. which blew the wiies
off the anemometer and prevented observations
of maximum velocity, but the average
is given as forty miles per hour.
DAMAGES IN THE CITY AND STATE.
^rStoaS^was 3one in the city and
throughout the sugar belt from Baton
Rouge to the Gulf, including also the rice
section of the State. Much of the sugarcane
and rice was blown flat on the ground
and many sugar houses and dwellings were
damaged. The damage to the sugar crop
is roughly estimated at from 10 to 20 per
cent., and to the rice crop 20 to 50 per cent.
THE CITY UNDER WATER.
In the city many, houses were unroofed,
fences prostrated and trees uprooted. The
heavy rain on the night of the 19th for a
time flooded the entire city. The rear portion
of the city from Clairborne street is
still inundated, the water of the canal being
so high that the drainage machines are
THE LIGHTS ALL OUT.
The city was in darkness last night, 19th,
the electric light wires coming in contact
with the wires of the telegraph and tele
phone companies, necessitating the cutting
off of the electric current.
THE STORM ON THE RIVER.
The greatest damage done by the storm
about the city was along the river front.
Fifty coal boats belonging to Pittsburg and
Southern companies sunk, valued at
$3,000 tfach. The small steamers W. G.
Little, Laura and Barataria were also sunk.
The steamer Ed. Harrison went adrift,
had her chimneys blown overboard, and
sustained other damage.
There are hundreds of minor losses
throughout the city that will in the aggregate
amount to thousands of dollars.
The storm drove the waters of the Gulf
up against and over the Louisville and
Nashville Railroad embankment, extending
from Michonto Lookout Station, a distance
of twenty miles, caused many washouts
and suspension of traffic over that
portion of road. Connection with this
city is now made by boat from the river.
On the Illinois Central Railroad a washout
occurred at Desair Station, delaying the
movement of trains until the damage can
All the telegraph wires were prostrated
last night, entirely severing telegraphic
communication with other points. No
jress reports were received for the morning
papers. This is the first occurrence of

The steamer Future City, with seven
barges, and the Oakland, with six barges,
"both from St. Louis, due on Sunday, have
not arrived. They passed Bayou Sara on
Saturday. Nothing has been heard of
THE SMOGCXG STREETS.
Almost every store on Canal street was
damaged by the unprecedented rain. Many
signs were torn from their fastenings and
carried away some distance by the flood.
St. Charles street presented a dismal ap
pearaace, with a deep and rapid stream of
water over the asphalt drives. The railroad
track was obstructed here and there
by prostrated trees, fences and telegraph
poles, and lumber and debris that had been
washed in from the side streets. The base,
ment of the Cotton Exchange building was
flooded with eight feet of water, which
poured down through the gratings from
the overflowing street. A fire engine was
employed this morning in pumping the
MORGAN CITY WRECKED.
Jfews from Morgan city is to the effect
that the storm there was very severe.
Dozens of houses were wholly or partly
unroofed and fully fifty buildings are off
their foundations. The floating elevator of

DESTRUCTION OF COAL.
Among the heaviest losers of property
zjjng the river are the coal dealers. Eighty
loaded coal barges and boats and one boat
of coke were sunk, and a number of others
-were reported sinking. The Pittsburg and
Southern Coal Company lost forty at Willow
Grove, twenty-seven at Ninemile Point
and ten at Brown & Jones's coal yard at
Algiers. The total loss is $240,000. The
steamer Keokuk was wrecked at Baton
Rouge last night She was valued at $20,000.
OK MISSISSIPPI SOUKD.
Further particulars of the damage on the
shores of the Mississippi Sound have been
received. The surf washed over the Bay
St. Louis bridge, but did no damage to the
structure. At Pass Christian trees were
uprooted and bath houses blown down, in
eluding that of the Mexican Gulf Hotel.
The bowling alley of the hotel was also
blown away. At Oak Lawn, a plantation
ownedby Col Rivers, eight cabins, sugar
house* rice shed and pump shed were blown
down and completely wrecked, At Tom
Schaffer's Anna plantation the wind played
havoc in the quarters, many cabins being
over turned; in fact, only three houses are
left standing. Sugar houses and cabins
were blown down all over that section.

Aiavv i uni\, a.u^u^i ?-iuo aiuvai v_/i
Senator Gorman here a day or so since
caused a report to be circulated to the effect
that Chairman Brice of the campaign committee
was to be superseded?that President
Cleveland and the leaders at Wash
iDgton were dissatisfied with his manner of
conducting the campaign, and had united
in demanding that the reins be given to the
man who held them with suctTdistinctiou
four years ago. Deacon Shepherd's afternoon,
or Republican afternoon, organ made
a great spread over the report and succeeded
in gettimr a number of people to
believe it. When questioned by your correspondent,
Senator Gorman pooh-poohed
the idea and stated most emphatically that
it was without a grain of truth. Colonel
Brice, he says, is a man of the greatest executive
ability, and his management of
the campaign has been entirely to the taste
of those most interested.
They say that there was the biggest kind !
of a row when the Republican Committee
began to settle up the bills for the Blaine
show. Uncle Morton's part of it, accord- j
ing to newspaper report, was $20,000, and
be came near getting out of harness altogether.
Morton complains that because he
is a rich man and a candidate every one expects
him to bear the full brunt of the
campaign so far as the financial part of it
stoes. The other rich men interested, he
says, "and the woods are full of 'em," are
standing with their hands in their pockets,
but you couldn't draw them out with a
derrick. So far as known the only man
besides Morton who has responded with
anything like that liberality becoming
monopolists and trust barons created by
the Republican party is Alger of Michigan.
His $100,000 it is understood was invested
with the specific understanding that in the
event of Harrison's election he was to have
his pick of the Cabinet positions.
Speaking of trusts, Blaine seems to have
put his foot in it the way he undertook to
defend them. A fishy though highly interesting
rumor comes from Washington
this morning to the effect that the Democratic
managers may endeavor to arrange a
joint canvass between the man from Maine
and Speaker Carlisle. The programme as
outlined is that they shall meet in twelve
cities, six to be named by each.
The fixing of Buffalo, September 12, as
the time and date for holding the New
York State Democratic Convention means
a snort, sh;.rp campaign. All tiie cnances
seem to favor the renomination of Governor
Hill, though there has been no let-up in
the opposition to him from certain quar
ters. The Mugwumps look fierce when
his name is mentioned and vow they will
knife him and never moult a feather, but
the Mugwump did precisely that sort of
thing .when Hill ran before, and under
very adverse circumstances he beat Ira Davenport,
one of the most popular Republicans
in the State. His partisans are using
this now with great force.
The more the recent ocean horror is
probed into, the blacker it seems for
some of the responsible officials. It
now appears that the one hundred and
twenty or so people lost were sacrificed
from the sheerest negligence. The captain
of the sunken steamer declares that there
was no fog and flatly lays the blame on the
masters of the other steamer. A most
rigid investigation is now in progressRight
on the heels of this disaster every?
body is talking of the ocean race just now
going on between the Umbria, known as
the greyhound of the ocean, and the new
monster, the City of New York, that is
making its first trip from this side. Both

under favorable circumstances the best
ocean record may be lowered. The City
of New York is the proudest ship afloat.
She is the best built and equipped and is
next to the Great Eastern in point of
length. An idea of her size may be obtained
from the fact that her top deck as
she sits in the water, light, ig about on a
level with the roof of a four-story house.
Over three hundred men alone are required
to man her engines.
XRTOTKtn jSTvRw AMD FLOOD.
Bridges Carried Away, and Electric, Gas and
Street Railroad Systems Ruined Wheeling,
W. Va., August 21.?A
storm, which, in its disastrous effects,
equals that of July 14, has been in progress
here since 3 A. M., and'shows no
signs of abating. Wheeling Creek, in the
narrow valley east of here, is a foot higher
than ever before; the roads being flooded
from two to six feet deep, and bridges destroyed.
The valley is now one angry
flood, and the damage can only be estimated
by the wreckage that dashes through
the city and out into the river.
At 3.40 P. M. a piece of the Baltimore
and Ohio wooden bridge, from the Pittsburg
division, struck the Baltimore and
Ohio bridge at Main and Sixteenth streets,
which was destroyed in July and rebuilt,
and it was carried away with the rapidity
of a cannon ball. Warned by former experience,
there was no person on it. At
5.50, while one thousand or more people
were massed on the substantial bridge over
Wheeling Creek, at Main street, a man on
the creek bank, one hundred feet above,
shouted a warning and the panic-stricken
crowd rushed over and into each other in
the wild effort to reach terra firma. After
the bridge was cleared, those nearest, seeing
it still apparently safe, turned back,
laughing at their late alarm, but before
they reached the edge, the bridge, 140 feet
in length, fell with one awful crash and the
waters leaped sixty feet into the air.
Water, gas and natural gas mains, sewers,
telegraph and telephone wires, electric
light, and street car and . conductors were
carried down. The Baltimore and Ohio
railroad bridge and the Market street iron
Driage, it is learea, will go. i ne losses
will reach $250,000.
The fact that the waters rose gradually
and in daylight is believed to have prevented
loss of life. It is known that five bridges,
rebuilt after the former flood, have been
destroyed, and the Wheeling and Elm
Grove Railroad bridge over Wood's Run is
also gone. All trains have been ordered
abandoned on the Ohio River Railroad.
About two hundred delegates to the Republican
State Convention at Charleston
tomorrow, are stuck on this road at Sistersville,
forty miles south on the river.
The Louisiana Storm.
New Orleans, La., August 21.?Passengers
by the Texas and Pacific Railroad
from Shreveport report damage to buildings
and crops similar to that at Donaldsonville
and Placquemine sugar houses,
and other buildings have been damaged
and destroyed and crops blown down. A
similar condition of affairs is reported from
many points on the Morgan road. The
sugar houses on Vigene's magnolia plantation
were demolished. Five sugar houses
in the vicinity of Jeanevette were bady
damaged. The steamboat Warren had her
chimney blown overboard at Baton Rouge
on Sunday night, and during the excitement
John R. Luckett, one of the best
known clerks on the river, fell to the boiler
deck and broke his neck.

sides of Chesapeake Bay, causing considerable

the wildest sort of excitement. Nil nitrous
frame houses and barns were demolished,

fruit orchards were destroyed, and
corn neias were in many msiances swept

HOW TO CURE SNAKE BITES.
A Simple Remedy that Is Said to Do the
Basines* Every Time.
Alden Davis of Damascus, in Wayne
county Pa., was bitten a few evenings
since by a rattlesnake in the ball of the
1 thumb, says the Port Jervis Gazette. A
cord was fastened tightly around the
j thumb to stop the movement of the
| blood from the region of the wound to
1 other carts of the body. Young Davis
t was then taken quickly as possible to the
office of Dr. Kemp, at Caliicoon Depot.
Having seen in a newspaper a few years
since a description of the remedy for
rattlesnake bites as used by the Geer
family at Long Eddy, N. Y., Dr. Kemp
made a careful investigation of the
matter, and became convinced of the
truth of the Statement therein made,
and that the remedy was indeed all that
was claimed for it. He, therefore, advised
young Davis to drive to John
Geer's as quickly as possible^ but at first
to partake freely of rye whisky. A bottle
of this liquor was obtained and the
house's head turned in the direction of
Long Eddy, a ditsance of eleven miles.
It was now late in the night, and as
the moon was down, very dark. The
road was a rough one, but by careful
and as rapid driving as possible the
dwelling of John Geer, the famous rattlesnake
catcher, was reached before daylight.
By this time, in spite of the tightly
drawn cord around his thumb, the
poison had made its way into the hand,
wrist and arm, which were badly swollen.
Davis had taken but two small drinks of
the liquor, and Geer promptly forbade
the use of any more, saying its effect
would be to increase the" circulation of
the blood and thus spread the poison
more rapidly. The effects of the poison
seemed not to be entirely confined
to the hand and arm. but in some way
was affecting the stomach. He had
" ft- 1. '
several severe vomiting speiis aiter wxucu
he spit blood Ireely.
Fortunately Greer knew right where
to get the violet, a sovereign remedy for
the bite of a rattlesnake, and, lighting a
antern, in five minutes' time had Davis
eating its leaves. He then applied salt
and indigo to the wound, first taking off
the tightly drawn cord, which, however,
had probably done good service in preventing
the more rapid spread of the
poison. Davis soon began to feel better.
The pain, which was great when he first
came, soon ceased. The stomach sickness
also left him, and, lying down, he
| slept for an hour, when Geer awakened
[ him to give him more of the violet and
apply a fresh poultice.
At the end of twelve hours from the
time he came to Mr. Geer's Davis started
to walked home, though the swelling had
not yet entirely disappeared.- Thinking
he might be kept for several days, he
sent his horse home. Geer gave him a
quantity of the remedy, cautioned him
to walk slowly, not to go to work, but
use the medicine till the swelling was entirely
gone, and assured him he was safe
from all evil effects of the snake bite.
This remedy has been known and used
in this plaoe and vicinity for over eighty
years. It was first obtained by Joseph
Geer, John's father, from a half-breed
Delaware Indian named John Johnson,
who used, in 1800, to occupy a hut on
the Pennsylvania side of the river, opposite
Long Eddy, and who, for a pint of
whisky, would let a rattlesnake bite him
and then cure himself with it. It is as
follows: Apply to the wound a poultice,
one-half each of common salt and indigo,
mixed with cold water, and renew every
every two hours. Eat freely of the
leaves, or drink often of a tea made from
them, of a variety of tUe blue violet (.v.
sagittate), commonly known as thet
"arrow-leaved" violet. If the bifcelte
upon the leg or arm bind the leases in a
circle around it above and jnst below the
swelling. Moisten with* cold water as
often as they get dry from the fever
created by the poison, and renew two or
three times a day.
BRIGHT DEMOCRATIC SKIES.
Disheartened Republican Leaders Over

Senator Faulkner, who returned today
from West Virginia, scouts the bare possibility
of Republican success there. The
recent Democratic Convention there nominated
an exceptionally strong ticket, which
Senator Faulkner thinks will be elected by
the largest majority ever known in the history
of the Satte. There is little faith put
here in the talk that S. B. Elkins is to run
for Congress from West Virginia. Mr.
Elkins, indeed, is not suspected of a particularly
active and aggressive character of
Republicanism this year. He was bitteriy
disappointed at the refusal of his party to
nominate Mr. Blaine, and his own enforced
retirement as a party manager to make way
for the friends of Gen. Harrison has added
to his acute despondency.
But by far the most encouraging report
of all is that of Senator Gorman touching
the good situation, as gathered at Head

quarters m i\ew iotk. Aiie oeuaiur say a
with emphasis and without reserve that
matters there could not possibly be in better
shape or more promising for Democratic
success. Mr. Gorman is a man who measures
his words well. He is given neither
to buncombe nor bravado, and, being a
manager of very large experience in politics,
this endorsement by him of the work
accomplished and in progress by the committee
in New York is of very great value.
He says that the campaign will take on a
greatly increased interest from the day the
President's letter of acceptance is promulgated.
Asked as to how soon the public
would be likely to see the letter, Mr. Gorman
"I can only conjecture, and my idea is
that September 1 is the probable date. Tou
will remember uiat in 1884 the President's
letter of acceptance was not given out until
August 24. Mr. Cleveland, therefore, by
his own precedent, is not behind about the

his reference to trusts as evidence that such
a blunder, coming from so bright a man,
could not but have been premeditated.
Mr. Blaine, they say, was as familiar
with his party's platform and his party's
other expressions relating to trusts as any
public man in America, and with his keen
appreciation of the value of things must
have known that such an expression coming
from him would occasion the intensest
and most savage criticism. They cannot
interpret it, therefore, except upon the
theory that he really desired to do his
party's ticket harm. It is said that both
Senator Quay and Colonel Dudley are so
much disturbed by Mr. Blaine's unfortunate
utterances that a recast of his appointments
to speak is seriously contemplated.
The Indianians declare that an utterance
J like that made on the stump in their State
would cost the party hundreds of votes,

the affront contained in Mr. Blaine's letter
of four years ago withdrawing his libel

among the leaders of that party here.

"FIRST -WATER" DIAMONDS.
What the Term Means?Variations iq
Quality and Valne.
The term "first water" is varied in
meaning according to the class of goods
carried by the dealer usi^g it. It is now,
however, intended to refer to a diamond
that is absolutely free from all trace of
color, blemish, flaws or other imperfections,
and whose brilliancy is perfect.
It is almost impossible to value a diamond
by its weight. Color, brilliancy, cutting
and the general character and perfection
of the stone are all to be taken into account.
Of two stones, both flawless and
of the same weight, one may be worth
$600 and the other $12,000. Exceptional
stones often bring fancy prices, whereas
off colored stones sell for from $60 to
$100 a carat, regardless of size. The
poorer qualities have depreciated so much
that some are worth only one-tenth to
one-quarter of what they were twenty
years ago. This is especially true of large
stones of the second or third quality. As
an instance of the depreciation of colored
stones we remember the famous Dewey
diamond, found near Manchester, Va
1856, on which the late John Morrisseyj
Sft ODD Thifl stnrm wpicrhpd plpvpn
carats after cutting, but it would scarcely
bring as many hundreds toda,, except
To be really fine, a diamond should be
cut neither too deep nor too shallow
(spread, as it is termed), but should be
mathematically perfect in its proportions.
A dealer usually buys either a deep or a
spread stone for as much less than the
price of the perfect stone which can be
cut from it as will pay the expenses and
the risk of recutting. For example, a
three carat spread or deep stone may furnish
only a two and a quarter carat stone
of perfect shape, and is, therefore, worth
the price of the latter, less the risk and
cost of recutting, and not as much, or
more than a three carat, simply because
it spreads over more surface. Very often
Brazilian gems, the very finest as regards
purity, and brilliancy and perfection
of cutting, yet containing some almost
microscopic carbonaceous fragment
or some slight flaw, may be rejected by a
person who wishes absolute perfection;
but this same person may select a stone
that, though perfect in every way, lacks
that essential feature of a fine diamond","
brilliancy, and is almost lustreless when
compared with the stone that he had rejected.
There are as many different qualities in
diamonds as in horses. Diamonds may
be round, oval-oblong, rounded squares
or square; the cuttings may be mathematically
correct, fine, fair or poor. A
diamond may be of the proper depth or
it may be too deep; it may be shallow or
spread; it may be perfect; it may be
slightly flawed, contain black spots, be
brilliant or medium brilliant. Its color
may be pure white; milky, steel blue or
it may be off colo?, tinted or bye-water;
in fact, there cax> be many hundreds of
differences ^Tone carat stone.
. Af^Tefferiej, the diamond dealer and
"authority, said in 1730, the fine diamond
should be as clear as pure rock water,

"Wedding Presents In China.
The ceremonies employed in Chinese
marriages differ widely in the various
provinces and districts. In all, however,
a "go between" is engaged to find, in the
first instance, a fitting bride for the
would be bridegroom; to conduct the
preliminary proceedings of bringing the
parents to terms, and to see to the casting
of the horoscopes and the exchange
of presents. The gifts presented are of
infinite variety; but in almost every case
a goose and a gander, the recognized
emblems of conjugal fidelity, figure conspicuously
among the offerings made by
the bridegroom. The choice of these
birds is so strange that one is apt to consider
it aa one of the peculiar outcomes
of the topsy turvy Chinese mind, which
regards the left hand as the placo of
honor and the stomach as the seat of the
intellect. But this is not quite so, for
we find from George Sand that at the
marriage of French peasants in Berry a
goose was commonly borne in the bridegroom's

Kaiload Wreck Near Asbury Park.

passenger tram for New York, on the New

and totally wrecked a freight train near
here today. The passenger train's engine
also was wrecked. No one was seriously

up. The accident was caused by a misplaced
switch. For a time the greatest excitement
prevailed. Women and children
screamed, and there .was a general scramble
for the doors.
The misplaced switch threw the passenger
train on to the side track where a
freight train was standing. The passenger
train was under slow headway, or otherwise
there would have been a large loss of

What a Visitor Saw in Tahiti?A Joyous
Occasion?Open Air Dancing.
"Band niglit" is a joyous occasion,
dear to the memory of all visitors to the
island. On Thursday nights the French
garrison band plays before the government
house in a little plaza carpeted with
turf and bordered with spreading trees.
On one side are venders of beer and
liquors?miserable stuff?011 another
women sell fruit and flowers, and in the
center is the brilliantly lit band stand.
As the band strikes up the people grow
wild with joy. Around the stand skip
men and girls, singly, in pairs and in
rows, heads up, eyes bright, teeth showing,
clasping each other by waist or
shoulder, laughing and calling to each
other, while the dust fairly chokes the
puffing, blowing musicians. If a dancer
falls in the mad whirl a scream of excitement
rises .and only dies away when the
prostrate one rises and dances on. Be
tween the selections they refresh themselves
with beer or fruit, while the officers
or young men of the town buy
flowers and wreaths for the girls, as
happy with their "leis" as a debutante
with her bouquets. A tall young globe
trotter advances to a group of dusky
beauties, holding high the finest lei he
can purchase. There is a scream of delight
from a dozen precty mouths, a
dozen rounded arms are thrust at the
prize as the garlanded heads bob Up and
down, and then there is a rush and he is
overwhelmed. They climb upon his
head and shoulders and pluck the wreath
to pieces, leaving him disheveled and
overcome by such a whirlwind of i^-os
Then the band strikes up and away
f thev all go again. At last the bandsmen
porm in the street, the torchlight tradesmen
disappear with the remnant of their
wares, and the crowd gathers in line before
and behind the band. The street
being darker than the plaza, even those
whose dignity and respectability kept
them from joining the dancers around
the stand, are now found in the ranks.
Officers from foreign men of war, yachtsmen,
townspeople, globe trotters, away
they all go, nymphs and satyrs, in wild
Bacchanalian dance down the dimly lit
street, under the trees meeting in an arch
overhead, now to the right, then back
across the street, each line at its own
sweet will. Dignity falls to the ground
when a smile and a glance from a flower
decked maiden comes bearing an invitation
to clasp hands or waists and "follow
the band." The "Pied Piper of Hamelin"
could lead away these people any
The band halts for some reason and we
get ahead of it, a line of us across the
street. On my right is a young lady with
a wreath of yellow flowers on her bteck
tresses, anotner arouna ner necK. i aon c
believe slie can speak a word of English,
and don't try to make her do so?there is
jJo lieeur- Beyond her there is a man and
then another girl?there are twelve in
the line. The band strikes up behind us
and everybody begins dancing. We can
take any step we like; we are off the
ground most of the time; and down the
street we go. Suddenly my arm is
grasped by a strong hand which slips
through; and I have on my left a big
Kanaka dressed in waistcloth and coat,
with head thrown back and laughing for
pure joy. Away we go, running and
dancing against the people ahead of us,
breaking into the lines, first one and then
another, until we bring up against a row
of figures clad in dark blue, a party of
sailors. We try to break this line, too,
but the stalwart fellows stop altogether
and back up the whole procession, digging
their heels into the ground and
bracing themselves against the attacking
lines. There is a wild uproar and
they dart forward with all the rout in
pursuit, only to repeat the performance
later. Meanwhile the right wing of oinline
pulls out to the side, and off we
dance up the side of the street to get
TrrViiV>Vi Visa Iwn fat*
in the rear. We come into line with a
swing, and I play "crack the whip" with
my Kanaka friend and bang him here
and there into the midst of dancing rows.
No one thinks of getting angry, and
you can do as you please, so down we go
through the lines ahead of us till we
strike again that stout row of sailors having
their watch ashore to-night. Out
again to the side, a dance back to the
band?and all repeat. A street light has
shown me that my young lady on the
right lias a pretty face and is enjoying
herself hugely. She stands the "cracking
the whip" and the breaking lines
with perfect ease. At last the band
turns into the market place and ceases
playing; the wild, fascinating dance is
over. We mop, pant and walk away to
a friendly home, where we drink tea and
e>t bread and jam with our host and
hostess till long past midnight.?Papeete

A WOMAN WITH A RAZOR
Disembowels Her Husband and Then Cuts
Her Own Throat.
(Philadelphia Times, Aug. 23.)
Wm. Burrow, aged 50 years, who lived
at 408 Noble street, lies on a cot in the
Pennsylvania Hospital, suffering from a
terriblej;ut in the abdomen inflicted by his
wite. me pnysicians tninK ne win cue.
The couple have been married for ten
years. About seven years ago they came
to this country from England and settled
in Philadelphia. Burrow was a tailor and
opened a shop at 408 Noble street, and
occupied all except the front room on the
first floor as a dwelling. His wife assisted
him in his work, and the couple were never
known to quarrel. They bought apiece of
property on Fourth street, near Callowhill,
out of their savings, and their business
Of late years Mrs. Burrow has been an
invalid, and for the past two months she
has been a physical wreck. Her husband
twitted her about her condition, and told
her several times he was going to leave her.
About a month ago he tola his wife he
would allow her the rent receiyed from
their house on Fourth street to live on, and
that on August 23 he was going away.
Burrow had left his wife in England and
gone off with another woman, but subsequently
returned and was forgiven. His
wife feared that he would leave her today
and she was very low-spirited. On Tuesday
she told Dr. Patterson, of 603 North
Ninth street, of her husband's threats to
leave, and he advised her to seek legal advice.
She promised to do this and went
SLASHED WHILE ASLEEP.
The couple retired early on Tuesday
night, as was their custom, but Mrs. Burrow
did not sleep. The neighbors noticed
her sitting at the window in their bedroom,
apparently watching the storm.
About 4 o'clock yesterday morning the
people living in the neighborhood were
startled by the cry of "Murder!" When
they got on the street they saw Burrow
standing at his window.
"For God's sake come in, my wife has
cut me open with a razor," he exclaimed,
at the same time throwing the bloody
weapon out of the window. The only
door leading to the house was locked on the
inside with a heavy wooden bar, and all
attempts to force it were futile. When
Burrow found the people could not get in
he crawled down stairs and succeeded in
opening the front door. Then he fell to
the floor in a pool of blood. He presented
a horrible sight. His abdomen had been
cut clear across by the keen edge of the
razor from one side to the other.
THE WOMAN'S ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.
Lights were procured and a few of the
neighbors went up stairs, while others hur4r?

the police. On the bed in the neat second
story bed-room lay Mrs. Burrow with her
throat cut. She was perfectly conscious
and had lost but little blood. The bed on
which she lay and the condition of the room
turned the spectators sick with horror. The
bed was literally saturated with blood and it
was dripping in a pool on the floor. A second
pool showed where the man stood at the
window crying for help. It was evident
that a struggle had taken place, but the
blood around the room showed that it was
after the woman had completed her awful
Before Burrow became unconscious he
said he was asleep and his wife threw a bottle
of hartshorn over him. Then she went
down stairs and got his razor. He thought
he was dreaming when he was awakened by
a sharp pain and he found himself covered
with blood. His wife had the razor in her
hand and drew it across her throat. He
grappled with her and succeeded in getting
the razor from her, cutting his hand badly
in doing so.
THE WOMAN'S WOUNDS NOT DANGEROUS.
Dr. George Polis, of 461 North Second
street, who had been summoned, called an
ambulance and had Burrow removed to the
Pennsylvania Hospital. He said Mrs. Burrow's
wound was not dangerous and, after
it was dressed, she was arrested by Police
man Hunt and locked up in the Seventh
district station house. She was given a
hearing before Magistrate Ladner and committed
to await the result of her husband's
injuries. She admitted to the Magistrate
that she did the, cutting, but refused to
give any reason.

Each of them is headed with the same
word?"Improvements." Anderson, thirty
miles to the west, is building a new hotel,
straightening and widening streets, putting
up new atore houses; Spartanburg, thirtyoad
miles to the east, is building water
works, opening new stores, establishing
new business; Laurens, thirty-odd miles to
the south, is macadamizing her streets,
paving her sidewalks, building new stores
and enlarging old ones; while Greenville,
in the centre of the circle, has just finished
putting in an electric lighting system and is
increasing ner ousiness iacuines m many

through this part of the State?new railroads,
new stores, new dwellings, new
churches, factories and enterprises of all
kinds. And when we look beyond our
own circle, Columbia is building a cotton
factory, developing her enormous water
power and preparing for the State Fair,
and Charleston is working faithfully for

Australian Bosh life.
Practical jokes are very often plgyed
on a sheep station, especially on new
chums. The most awkward horse is
given to the newcomer, and the result
eagsrly watched for. Perhaps the Australian
"buck jumper" is the most difficult
horse in the world to sit. He allows
himself to be mounted quietly, and then
puts his nose between his knees, arches
his back like a cat, and usually unseats
his rider. They are sometimes taught to
buck jump, and strangers are challenged
to ride them. Some can even buck right
out of the saddle without bursting the
girths, and leave their rider behind on
the ground, The black fellows in a station
are very expert riders, and will keep
their seats after the saddle has gone.?

Selecting a Gaucho Leader.
It is related that a Gaucho army once
selected its leader after the following
exciting manner: A number of totally
wild horses were driven into a corral
whose only exit was a gateway above
which was a cross bar. It was agreed
that whoever should drop from the bar
upon one of the animals as it rushed out
and break it then and there without
saddle or bridle should be their general.
The feat was likely to cost the candidate
his life, but it was successfully accomplished.
Who will doubt that the fortunate
man was a fit leader for such an
army??T. C. Harbaugh.

WEDDED BY DEATH.
A Most Remarkable Story of a Marriage
Norwich, Conn., August 21.?The death
of a prominent young lady of this city in
Germany, reported today, completes the
final act of a romantic story?a thrice deferred
marriage and a multiplicity of misfortunes.
Miss Georg left Norwich last
June for Germauy. All arrangements had
been completed for her marriage to a young
Germau of noble birth. Upon the day set
for the wedding the young man was taken
ill and the ceremony was postponed. For
a week he hovered between life and death,
nursed by his devoted betrothed. Wheu
he grew a little better the invitations were
again issued. This time fire broke out aud
totally destroyed the sumptuous residence
which had been prepared by the young
man. Again the wedding was put off.
The excitement proved too much for
Miss Georg, and she was taken to her bed
instead of to the altar while the guests were
assembling at the church upon the third
invitation, Miss Georg's illness being so
sudden that word could not be sent to
them by messenger. They were impatiently
awaiting the bridal party, but the
groom was delayed eu mule also, and while
Miss Georg lay ill was pushing on to fulfill
his contract. He, too, was ignorant of
her condition. When within sight of the
house of his affianced his horse became unmanageable
and threw him to the ground,
killing him instantly. His sad death was
announced from the pulpit by the minister
and struck the congregation dumb. It was
suppressed, however, from Miss Georg,
but she rapidly grew worse and died four
days later, without knowing that her lover
had preceded ber.
CREAT COUNTERFEITING SCHEME.
Men from Many Cities Kea<ly to I?#iie
Millions or Bogus Coin.
Denver, August 22.?The arrest yesterday
of three counterfeiters unearths one of
the biggest sensations developed here for
many years and illustrates a scheme managed
by counterfeiters in Chicago, Denver,
Santa Fe, San Francisco, and, it is believed,
the City of Mexico. United States Secret
Service officers have been aware for some
time that counterfeiters were at work in
New Mexico, and that they would soon
spring the mine which was to flood both
the United States and Mexico with bogus
$5, $10 and $20 "gold" pieces.
Deputy District Attorney Gage was sent
to investigate, and succeeded incoming the
counterfeiters. The counterfeiters were to
manufacture some good coins as a "feeler,"
after which "bogus stuff," to be made of
cnemicai material, wmcn was warranieaio
wear for a year, and sold to customers at
the rate of $1,200 for twenty-four pounds.
Manuel Lenaire, the leader of the gang,
arrived here at noon yesterday and was
registered at the Windsor, where he was
met by two accomplices. While they were
discussing prospects Gage, who was in the
room, gave the signal and the officers, with
drawn revolvers, walked in and captured
