Ten Hen Precipitated into a Ditch,
One Receiving Injuries That Bender
Amputation of the Leg Necessary.
Yestedray morning about 10 o'clock,
while a gang of men were rolling a
heavy iron elbow Into position In a
ditch at the Riverside, the scaffold upon
which the pipe rested gave way,
dropping it and the ten men down into
the ditch. Francis Long had one of his
legs caught beneath the pip?, crushing
it hi uie Knee, nomer unaoarger was
struck in the head with a piece of timber,
sustaining a slight fracture of the
ckull. "William Barlow had an arm
slightly bruised and tne rest of the
den escaped unhurt.
Long, who was the most seriously injured,
was removed to the Emergency
hoEpltal, where it was found that his
injuries were of such a nature as to
render, amputation necessary. The left
leg was taken ofT above the knee. He
was afterwards removed in the Wheeling
ambulance, to his home, out Bogg's
run. It is not thought that Linabarger's
injuries will develop Into anything
of a serious nature. The elbow weighed
about 1,500 pounds.

For a unique and positively refresh- }
ing performance, Isham's "King Rastus"
company certainly takep the l*ad
and has set the pace for all other similar
organizations. The novelty of presenting
a semi-operatic comedy by colored
stars has proved a pleasing sur
prise and created a furore'everywhere.
The company, numbering thirty-five, l?
composed of such artists as Billy Ker- i
sands. Smart & Williams. Mallory Bros, i
& Brooks. S. H. Dudley and others. The <
production is carried complete, the 1

grand prima donnas, and a large chorus <
of pretty girls, who can sing and dance
and made the hours merry. George (
Totten Smith, who has become famous
for his bright and witty vaudeville
sketches, is the author. Mr. Hal King, i
the manager, has placed It before the
public with one of the strongest com
panles ever seen in farce-comedy, having
selected every member for their line <
of work, which embraces artists from ]
grand and comic opera, vaudeville and
dramatic, who appear, incidental to the ,
play in unique and novel specialties, j
.which occur in a natural manner.

In one of his new Oriental Illusions, *
which will be presented In this city for
the first time this season, during Magi- ^

the Hindoo theory of the rein- ^
carnation of souls. He will show In full?
light, upon an almost vacant stage, how
easily he can materialize a beautiful, 3
living woman from the air, simply by t
means of a Hindoo Incantation, originally
used. It Is said, hundreds of years .
ago, by an old pri?st In one of the IIIn- 8
doo temples. And the reincarnated being-will
walk and speak to the audi- e
once, to show that she Is not an Image
or a reflection. All Kollar's new muster-pleces
and a host of novelties In c
small magic will be presented at the
Opera House, September 26.

One-Half of the Congregation Walk
Out Last Night
At a congregational meeting of the
First United Fresbyterlan church last
evening five of the trustees of the
church resigned and after the resignation
had been votid upon and accepted,
fully one-half of the congregation arose
and walked out. As stated in yesterday's
Intelligencer, this faction of the
church, at a meeting held Tuesday evening,
appointed a committee of* five to
prepare a petition to the Wheeling
presbytery, asking for the organization
of the Second United Presbyterian
J. M. Brown presided at last
night's meeting. Samuel Parker arose
and presented a paper containing the
resignations :>f Ave trustees. He said
they left church property' approximating
Ja value 525,000 and that they felt
as they withdrew that they did not contribute
that money to the congregation,
but they gave only to the;Lord. It was
not their intention to hamper them in

Before voting Elder Brown called for
nominations for chairman and secretary
of the meeting. Dr. Petrie was
elected chairman, and Herbert Nesbitt,
secretary. Chairman Petrie asked the
pleasure of the congiegatlon on the resignations.
Elder James McAdams was
opposed to accepting and said the resignation
was a very clear piece of work.
Mr. Cowden thought in courtesy to
them it.was proper and right to accede
to their request and accept the resignation.
Prof. Stevenson said that at first
thought he did not know how he would
vote on that question. It was eminently
proper that they accept the resignation
and make provision for the vacancies.
They couldn't do otherwise. A
motion was made to accept and it was
carried, Mr. McAdams casting the only

congregation were then unanimously

BICYCLE ICE TRIP.
Dawson to Skagway, Alaska, by Bicycle.
E. P. Leroy, a newspaper correspondent,
was the first one to make the trJp
successfully from Dawson to Skagway,
TiSO miles, over the ice, on a bicycle. He
was eight days on the way and encountered
one of the heaviest snowstorms of
the season. He comments on the universal
fact that men in the Arctic climate
have scurvy and stomach trouble
because of poorly cooked food.
He says when he first went to Alaska
he had a good stomach, but it finally
gave out; and one day in his search for
something that a man without an appetite
could eat, he came across some
packages of Grape-Nuts food. He knew
of the food and its value and was willing
to pay of an ounce of gold dust
($4.00) for one package.
He says: "I can assure you the satisfaction
of getting something 1 could eat
and digest without suffering was well
worth the' 'price. As soon as it had
proven to be Just what I wanted. I
bought the whole lot. and from that day
to this, Grape-Nuts food has constituted
my chief article of diet.
"I find that Grape-Nuts is quickly
picked up as soon as a new lot comes to
camp. There is nothing known that
gives the miner and frontiersman ihe
strength, with so little volume, as
Grape-Nuts food, and it Is always ready
for use, being perfectly cooked, and can
be eaten dry or with a little cream,
milk, or water, hot or cold. Just as a
man likes. I could not have taken tny
food that would have carried me
through my long Journey on the ice so
well as Grape-Nuts."
