1 THE CHINESE TROUBLES.
SAX Feakcisco. Sept. 3. The steamship
Gaelic arrived today from Hong Kong and
Yokohama. A Wucuango correspondent,
writing to the Xorth China Xews under
dnte of August 3, says that the patience of
the foreign population is well nigh worn
out at the tardine&s shown by Chinese
officials in punishing the perpetrators of
the Wusuh outrages. A second batch of
ofi'endors, eight i.i number, has been con
victed of murder, assault and pillage, and
sentences of penal servitude for life, ban
ishment for life and branding on the face
or back have been imposed. The corre
spondent says that it is stated one of the
prominent officials of Shanghai was im
plicated in the issue of the incendiary and
malicious placards which caused the up
rising against foreigners. These placards
were frequently brought to the attention
of the authorities prior to the rioting, but
at no time has anyone been punished for
issuing thorn. .
On Ju y 31 Admiral Belknap, command
ing the American souadron, received a
telegram from Foo Cuow. stating that the
Chinese had posted ptecmls with the
words, "Exterminate the foreigners." The
telegram also stated that 3,001 Honon
Mildiers. stationed ar Foo Chow, threat
en to join in the uprising.

Usually "when a man has been run over
by an engine and. a train of five car3 the
coroner sits on -what is left of him. With
the excoption of the coroner's inquest,
that is what happened to Jacob Kahn.
Nevertheless he is none ihe worse for
his remarkable experience. Nature made
'Kahn a very thin man, and to this fact
he owes his lif e. Kahn is about twenty
,two years old, and is a journeyman
1 baker. He is not very tall, but his thin
ness is a standing joke in the neighbor
hood. Being good natured, it never angered
him, and he was wont to laugh and re
ply that; some day they would envy him
for being slender. -About 7 o'clock he
was talking to some acquaintances at
Second street and Germantown avenue,
when a shifting engine, drawing five
heavy fright cars, came along. Just as
it was almost opposite to him Kahn step
ped righl; between the tracks. A dozen
people shouted and screamed, and Kahn
saw his danger. Whether he suddenly
realized 'that his remarkable thinness
might be the means of saving his life, or
whether it was merely fright is not
known, but he fell flat on his face as the
engine cime np and passed over him.
The engineer could not stop and went
right on, while the people stood trans
fixed with horror. The five cars passed
over him. A policeman and a big crowd
ran into the street to gather up the
mangled corpse. Imagine their surprise
when Kahn jumped up, apparently un
hurt, brushing the dust from hia new

Another War Biblo Story.
George Althisar, a veteran of the war
and now filling the place of letter car
rier at tbe postoffice in Port Jervis, at
tended the Grand Army reunion at De
troit, and took occasion while there to
restore to a comrade a long lost Bible with
an interesting history. The Bible was
originally a gift to David Webster, a
Michigan volunteer, from his mother on
the eve of his departure for Virginia in
1861. Webster lost the book at the sec
ond battle of Bull Run.
It fell into the hands of a Confederate
Eoldier of Stonewall Jackson's command
named Hayes. Following the moth
er's inscription to her son on the fly
leaf the soldier wrote a brief statement
of the circumstances under which it
came into his possession. He abandoned
his knapsack containing the book on the
battlefield at Bristow's station.
Althisar picked the volume up and
had carefully preserved it for twenty
six: years as an interesting relic of a des
perately fought battle. Ho was for
tunate in finding Comrade Webster at
the Detroit reunion and in restoring to
him a relic doubly precious because tle
mother who gave it had died. Cor.

Snmmer Diversions at Bar Harbor.
A Bar Harbor man has 3 scheme for
amusing the summer visitors at Mount
Desert and making a few dollars for him
self. He proposes to entertain the tour
ists with a view of a genuine shipwreck.
His plan is to man a vessel with men
who are not afra;d of getting their feet
wet, and then, when it comes on to blow
hard, to run on the Tocks at Otter creek
or Schooner Head. Spectators will get
the tip, as at a prize fight, of the location
and will be charged so much a head for
seeing the fun. The crew take their
own chances of getting ashore, with the
assistance of a life saving crew, which
will be on hand with all the necessary
apparatus for fishing them out. Ear
Remarkable Growth of Tobacco.
J. W. Cook came in Saturday and told
about some tobacco hp is raising. Last
year he raised a cror of the weed, and
after he cut it in the fall suckers grew
out from the stumps. These suckers re
tained their vitality all winter and in the
spring began growing with increased
vigor. Mr. Cook pruned them down to
one to the hill and cultivated the crop.
He says it is just as good as the crop he
planted last spring, the leaves being
broad and heavy, instead of narrow and
peaked as the leaves qf suckers usually
are. Elsberry (Mo.) Advance,

see the beautiful scenery of the sound.
It seems that the:work of burning under
brush, which earsonly be carried on ad
vantageously in the summer, creates an
immense volume of smoke. The general
sentiment appears to be against the
tourists, as the people argue that if the
clearing was stopped they would all have

Collecting: a Debt.
A Gardiner man collected a bill of
$2.10 the other day and feels well over
his success. He rode ten miles into the
country and found his debtor in the hay
field just about to pitch on a load of hay.
"The money is up to the house," ex
plained the farmer, "and I'll get it just
as soon as I get in this load of hay. Do
you mind getting on and building the
load?" The Gardiner man got on and
when he reached the barn he found the
lady of the house, who had charge of the
money, out blueberrying. So he stayed
and built another load and then got his
money. Some folks think he had earned
