A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Ye6lerday about noon Oliver Cole, son of
Esquire Cole, about 12 years of age, fell
from a tree In the yard of the house, 903
West street, and injured himself in a very
dangerous manner. He bad climbed the
tree for the purpose of gathering horse
chestnuts, and when up. about thirty feet
one of the branches gave way , and he fell,
striking the fence, and one of the spikes In
the top entered his right side between two
ribs, penetrating his lung. He was taken
to his home and Drs. Manil >md Rust sent
for, who rendered mtdlcal (teal stance. At
first It was feared thalt thb wound would
result In death In a shot t time, as there was
a good bit of hemorrhage, aDd he. seemed
to suffer terriblj, but toward the latter end
of the afternoon lie rallied a little and
appeared easier. He is very seriously In
jured, and at last report he was not ex
pected to live until this morning.
REMARKABLE PRESENTS.
Mr. Geoige R. Johnson whose family re
side at No. 502 West Fifth street, sent home
a few weeks ago from Rio Janeiro, where
he Is stationed as U. 8. Engineer, some very
remarkable presents. Among tlr:se are
three shawls, one for each of his daughters
that In there way are remarkable. They
are made of silk and while they are quite
large when unfolded, yet the fabric Is so
delicate and texture so flue, that, they can
be drawn through a finger ring. There are
also a number of stuffed birds, whose plum
age for beautiful and harmonious colors and
tints almost out rival a rainbow.

WEARY WANDERERS FROM THE
WEST.
THE JOURNEY OF A FAMILY FROM TEXAS
TO THE EAST ON A DOLLAR AND FORTY
FIVE CENTS.
"There le a family of Gypsies encamped
on poor house hill" said a man to the
Herald reporter yesterday morning. As
snch an action In the part of these aimless
wanderers with In the city limits is rare
the reporter was soon on hie Way to the
place, designated which Is on the hill be.
tween Fourth and Fifth streets beyond
Jackson. A large covered wagon was the
bottom of the hill and sitting beside it near
where a fire had smouldered and died out,
was a group of three persons, a'man a wo
man and a child. The quill driver approach
ed and learned that Instead of Gypsies they
were American citizens. The man's name
le Thomas M. Jackson, so a conversation
of a few minutes revealed, he left Han
cock Co. Texas on the 4th of last February
owing to misfortune, with the Idea of hunt
ing up his relatives which he supposed to
be UvlDg in Philadelphia. Exposure on the
plains had so told upon his Constitution
that one side of him'becsme so paralyzed
that he was compelled to give up his work
of driving cattle and he got a job of toll
bridge keeping which job soon gave out
and as no other means of support presented
itself he got a wagon a pair of Sturdy Tex
as ponies and with his wife and child and
an amount oi finances amounting to juat
$145 stnrted east. The tolls of crossing the
great American plains were great and at
times the hearts of the love jourUeyers sunk
In dlspalr. "When we were out on the
plains and about half way to the Missis
sippi my wife took the dropsy had and I
felt like giving up" said Mr. Jacksonin re
lating his journey and this was poly ope of
their numerous set backs. i
Philadelphia was reached a! few weeks
ago and after much trouble the relatives
were found but rrfused to give them any as
sistance although they were In good circum
stances . They next went to Camdfen where
pity was roused In the hearts of the open
handed Jersey men and a collection was ta
ken up and they were presented 'with the
wagon they now have instead of the old one.
Resuming their journey that, on Friday
night reached their present resting place
where they have since been arousing much
curiosity amongst the neighbors. Mr.
Jackson thinks of staying In this city over
winter If he can get a house cheap. "You
sen," said he pointing to his horses that
stood near by the fence along Fourth street,
"the ponies are about played opt for a while
and by spring they will, I suppose be able
to take me back to Texas where : I'll he
likely to get something to do.
Mr. Jackson has not a good; opinion, of
newspaper men. In Philadelphia and
Camden they told lnaguratlve ktorleg about
him and the Camden Daily P*st reporter
said that he had been to see Hayes at ; the
White House and was formerly a famous
Indian fighter "I wa never att the White
House, be explained" and I didn't like so
lying, A reporter was out here a while ago
and took notes and I didn't cart how many
come or what they write so Ipng as they
would give a poor man a little; aid but this
reporter did not say "mony'once.". The
Herald man felt rebuked for not thinking
of this sooner and at once went down
among hts loose change.
We commend this case toj rbe Young
Men's Christian Association orjsomo other
benevolent body and hope that they may do
something to relieve the wsptp of the faml
ly. Mr. J. Is a member In good standing of
the Baptist church.

CORRE8PONESCE.
Mb. Editor:—N otwithstanding the In
structions of the new Mayor to his police,
It seems street lounging has not been
Stopped. On Sunday evehfngMarket street
was lined with a s^of filthy mouthed
and boys, and especially 'between Sixth and
Seventh streets. Tenth Street and Delaware
avenue was as bad. • A ltdjr; cannot walk
the streets without being InkUlted by
of these vlllians.-r.lt is a disgrace to the
city that this is permitted to continue. This
state of affairs Is becoming worse every
day, hut we do not ' blame Pnr'pollce. The
blame lies at the door of our previous
Councils, who wasted our money In useless
expenditures, while they shppld have used
It in increasing the police, force,
hope our present Council will Increase the
police force and give our citizens the pro.
taction for which they are wfell taxed.
