Base Ball Notes. The Philadelphia Sporting Life of te-day says: "Geerge W.

Since boyhood he haa been connected with the advertising departments 'of the Barnum and Forepaugh circuses, and he new haa charge of tbe bill posting of the opera house hore. He has a knowledge of base ball and knows geed players. With some te'.ld financial encouragement he would be able te strengthen the Actives greatly." Such well-known papers as the Clipper, Sporting Life, New Yerk World, and ethers are giving their strong support te the Players League, while the Philadel phia Times, and such papers who devete very little space te sport, are saying all the mean things they knew about the Broth erhood. The games In Bosten, en Thurs day, showed which way the wind Is blow ing. The rain of yesterday spoiled a num ber of games. Te-day the Philadelphia and Athletic clubs will play their first spring game for the championship of the city. Many old reliables will be missed from these teams, as the players have gene te the Brother hood. These games interest very few people outside of the Quaker city.

HER HAIR SAVED IIKR LIFE. Remarkable EflTevt efu I.lghtulug Flush en n Vlrtflnlu Weman, A curious freak of lightning during a re cent storm was played en a woman named Ellen Barnes, a laundress, living In the suburbs of Petersburg, Va. She had step ped te the deer and steed holding It ajar, watching the Bterm, when she was struck by the lightning and knocked sensoless. She was alene at the tlme, except fera child a few months old, but a neighbor from her window saw the woman fall and, daring the storm, ran te her assistance and suc ceeded In resuscitating her after some tlme. Though unable te speak for hours she was apparently unhurt by the shock, but a part of her hair was turned a dazzling white by the electricity and killed te the very roots. A distinct line of demarcation separates the dead white hair from the living and black strands. This line does net run exactly down the middle of the head, but about an inch and a quarter te one side. A remarkable feature of the occurrence Is that the woman says that as she was struck she was conscious of a terrlble pang in the side of her bead, which is unchanged, and remembers no particular sensation in the ethor. She is inconselablo ever ber strange deformity, being a young woman, as the physicians give her no liepe that new and black hair will ever grew again en the affected side of her head, but en deavor te comfort her by the unanimous opinion that she ewes her life, and at any rate her reason, te the thickness of her locks, which prevented the bruin from feeling tbe full ferce of the shock.

Until tne officers are elected und Inaugur ated in Newark, the officers of the United Sineers of Baltimore, where the lest Sam- Serfest was held, are the officers of the Tertbeastern Singers' Union. When they heard of the withdrawal of the Newark societies, thev communicated with the Brooklyn, New Yerk and the Philadelphia societies. A propo prepo sition has been advanced that a committee of singers from theso cities he apielnted te investigate tbe trouble.

WEATHER FORECASTS. P Washington, D. C, April 5. Fer Eastern Pennsylvania i Fair till Monday, Coeler northwesterly Wind, WfaWUHeeset, EIGHT PAGES.--PRICE A MODERN MIRACLE, A Hospital Patient Mysteriously Gels Asvay-The Practically Dead Man Walked Off. William O'Nell, 35 year of age, living at 133 1 Eldrldgojatreet, Wt Yerk, entered Bellevue hospital en March 22, a a charity patient. Tbe Monday following his brother-in-law, James Cusslck, went up there te ace htm, and te his utter amaremenl he was told that the patient could net be found. Nobody knew anything about him. uer did search throughout the hospital and yard reveal hi whereabouts. He had disappeared as completely as II the earth had opened and swallowed him up. Ner has he been found since. New, what became of htm T That 1 the question which the peer, uurortunate wlfe he left behind wants answered. Every official In Bellevue is In the densest Ignorance apparently, concerning the matter. O'Nell had worked for a geed many years, when ene day he was stricken with paralysis. He was confined te his bed for months, and as he lay there his mind began te glve away. Finally he be came almost an Imboclte, and was nearly helpless. Mrs. O'Nell soemsto be a very honest hard-working woman, and It is a very strange ttile she tells. She sava that tbe permit committing her husband te the Charity hospital en the Island was shown '.'.ft "'ready made up when she went te Bellevue. On Tuesday, after the news was broken te her by ber brother that O'Nell bad dis appeared, Iho woman was dumreunded. Te Mrs. O'Nell's brother, who had gene te leek alter O'Nell en Monday, one or tlie clerka said : I it William O'Nell, of Ne. 135 Eld Eld rldge street, that you wantT Oh, he walked out en Sunday, and we knew uoth ueth Injjf of him ftlnce." llieu Cuaslrk asked them te search for him thoroughly, explaining that It was Impossible for him te have walked away. The answer was that a thorough search bad been made'. On Thursday Mrs. O'Nell, as If drawn by a magtiet, wandered up te Bollevue again, She visited Dr. Newcembe. who, she says, OXamlUed liar lilifthati1 whnn liilv.rmi LuiHteif, but he gave her no comfort. " i non l went into me morgue anil ion a description of mv peer man lu there," continued Mrs. O'Nell. "They have net found him, and I have gene up there nearly overy oilier day since t but nothing has yet ceme of It. II I could only find him dead ItJwnali! he soma comfort, but In ItuTriBrlPIBIlTkrhap bntehored, up thore in the Hospital, ercut TiIMUier no may uave tiled In ene of bis fits or cniwrrHI streets, half dead and starving nuie." CLIMBING INTO THE SKY. A Stccplo-Walker Stands Thirty Lad ders en Tep of Each Other. The work of repairing the big chimney el the Clark thread works at Kearny, N.J., that was struck twlce by lightning a week age te-day, has been cemmenced by a slater named Jehn Phillips. Various plans had been suggested for reaching the crev ices In the cliimney. One plan was te fly a klte and by this means carry a repe ever the top of the stack, whoreby a man could resell the capping, and from there lower hlmself te the places te be repaired. An An other suggestion was that a balloon be em ployed. It was argued that by this means a swinging scaffold could be brought Inte play. When Phillips was applied te, he said he would undertake te reach Iho top of the chimney, which rlses 355 feet above the f round, with ladders. Ills preposition was aughed at, but when he asked te be given a chance te show what hoeould de, the firm told him te go ahead, and that If be suc ceeded they would pay well. Ua went te work at once, and at 0 o'clock last night had flfteen ladders In position, and by to night he will. In nil probability, have the ethor II ft eon ladders which are required te bring him te tlie lop firmly fastened te the blir stack. The bottom ladder In cmbedded In the f ;round and the top is rastened liy atium atium ter of strong iron spikes driven Inte the chimney. Theso spikes are eighteen Inches In length, and the ends that clasp the ladder are bent In te shift position At the points wliere the ladders are jeined are placed blocks of weed eight Inohes wide and two Inches thick. They rest en the spikes, and the ladders are fastened te the blocks. When Phillips has finished his pn.it of tlie work carpenters will swing two circular scaffolds, from which the work of rehiring the chimney will be begun by the masons. When the damage has been renal red the stack will contain 1,750,000 bricks. President Woeilruft Makes a Statement Which Surprises III Followers. Salt Laic is City, Utah,x April 0.
