Fatal ALPtva Accidkkt.?The Continental
Heiald says "Last Tuee>lay, a young abepherd
descended from Bernina to Pentreatna with the
news that be had found a lady dead at the foot
of a rook. About forty persons immediately
set ont for the plaoe indicated, In the valley of
Kosegg, where they discovered the corpse of a
young lady, extenued on a bed of Alpine roaas
There was no wound visible, and the only mark
was a yellow spot on the left temple. In fact,
the unfortunate lady seemed rather asleep than
dead. It Is surmised that, In looking for the
edelweiss Cower, she fell OTer a ledge of rock
and was killed Instantaneously. It Is strange
that a similar accident, anattended, however,
by fatsl consequence^, took piace In the sam?
neighborhood a few days before."

waa ao conspicnoua at theoMeef the tank to
ward the window, wasa most voracious monster,
devouring other frogs, as wall as making a
dainty meal off the delicate gold fl*h. A few
days ago, owe of the alligators, eleven laches

of the tank to examine the laat4e of the bag,
though it hardly aeemed reasonable to wppoao
that he had swallowed the alligator. Bat on

the case, and by potting the Anger down the
