A special from Bay City, Mich., says:
Mdch excitement prevails here concern-
irig the report that many fishermen have
drifted into Lake Huron on an ice-field
carried out in Saginaw Bay by the strong
: south wind. The fishing village is about
fifteen miles northeast of this eity and
five miles from land. It is estimated
. that 300 men were engaged in spearing
fish and the first reports are to the effect
, that all were lost, Towara evening sev
: eral of the fishermen reached Essexvilie,
a suburb of this city, and reported that
s 'most of their companions reached the
" shore in safety. ' The best authority ob-
' v talnable places the number of . casta--iwava
at from twenty to fifty. Those
5 acquainted with the situation say they
will reach the shore before the ice passes
' , " outside of Saginaw Bay. In case they
do not, there is no hope of their being
rescued. -The
storv of the disaster, so far as
known, is that during the night the wind
had driven the ice out towards the lake,
taking with it all the fishermen who
were on the floe in their shanties num
bering about 200 men. They were dis
tributed all over the bay for miles. Six
of the lost men managed to get to the
shore twelve miles east of the river.hav

in all the States ot the German con
federation before the year Is ended. A
bill on the subject has been prepared by
the Prussian Government and has re

who, from the day he succeeded to the
throne, has persistently demanded souse
restrictions upon the sale ot intoxi

years ' the Government ministers
have been engaged in collecting

There is a tiny mite of babyhood
weighing Just three pounds in the babies'
hospital, at New York. The Infant is a
male and its mother died in giving it
birth. " The baby weighed Just three
pounds when it was turned over to the
babies' hospital a few days ago. It was
decided that the only chance of saving
the child was to place It in an Incubator.
This consists of a box about three feet
long and eighteen inches wide, with a
glass cover, one end of which is slightly
raised to give ventilation. Inside a bed
of soft cotton i.ls made on a small shelf
and on this the infant rests. The tem

Decree Opened I p.
An interesting law salt that Involves a
large amount ot money has just been
brought up in Crawford County. A num
ber of years ago an aged and eccentric
old farmer of considerable wealth died,
leaving a will. His numerous heirs, his
varied business interests, and his large
estates were such that a settlement, ac
cording to the will, was a difficult task.
Finally compromises were arranged, and
a settlement made. Soon after the set
tlement Mrs. Mary Rice, of Marion
County, claimed that as one of the grand
children of the late Robert Kerr she had
been omitted from the settlement, and
by her attorneys filed motion to open up
the decree. This motion, after being
carefully considered for six months, has
finally been declared In the affirmative.
The heirs, in their settlement prior to
dropping the will, declined to recognized
Mrs. Rice as one of the heirs, but on ac
count of her claim effected an outside
compromise with her, the Intent of
which, she claims, she did not under
stand until after she had signed the
agreement. The proving herself an heir
by Mrs. Rico would secure her about
813,000, as the entire estate approxi
mates 8300,000. As the whole proceed
ing subsequenfly entered Into with the
children, grandchildren and trustee were
based upon annulling the will, tnany im
portant and far-reaching questions can
be seen looming up in the future.
Disastrous Break.
the excessive rain at Chllllcothe,
eaused the canal to break its bank in
that city, entertaining a loss of about
830,000. The break is located in the
principal part of the city, where the
canal bed is some thirty feet higher than
the park lake and park, the latter being
the old bed of the Scioto River, running
into the park lake at the point where the
damage was done. The city some years
ago constructed a waste weir, the over
flow to supply the lake. This was ne
cessarily a weak point, and was the first
to give way. Beginning there the bank
was washed away for a distance of one
hundred feet, extending from William
Taylor & Co.'s pork packing establish
ment down and Including a footbridge
below. The canal bed waa washed out
ten or fifteen feet deeper than it had
been. A block of warehouses built along
the opposite bank is placed in great
danger of collapsing, because of their
undermined foundation. The accident
has caused great excitement. The
dredge, which has been working on the
level, was moored near the washout, and
came very nearly being made a total
wreck. The question arising oat of this
happening Is a perplexing one. The city
had the waste weir placed at that point
at their own expense. 'Will the State or
city have to bear the loss?
