Saved from Death by Presence of Mind. There was witnessed, Yester day altei noon, one of the most remarkable instances pree enee ot miud on the puct of a lady we have ever heard of. At about 5 o'clock, as i largo number of picnickers .from Badger's Park were wail ug lor ihe train to take them o this city, a young lady about twen ty years ol age, escort eT, by a young man ot about the same age, started to walk acrfss the tr?8tle(work opposite hf putk. At this point there is a twtep ing curve in the railroadtrack, and when a train is approacn ing it can not be seen till with in a short distance or the sta tion The lady and gentleman had proceeded about thirty yards ou the trestle work when a gravel train came around the cirve at a high rate of speed. The engineer saw the situation, and whistled down brakes, but it was impossible to stop the tnin in time to save them. The pair started to run for the solid ground, but it waft an impossi bility to reach it beforo the trdin approached, and the large crowd held its breath, expect ing every moment to see two mangled forms. The lady, who did not lose her presence of mind tor a second, saw her dan ger, and shouting to her com panion, immediately dropped through the trestle work and caught hold ot one ol the sleep ers with her hands just as the huge engine passed over her head, with scarcely twelve inches between them. The man :ollowed suit, and the two re mained suspended till the long train passed cn, when a num ber of gentlemen rushed lor- a rd and rescued them from i heir perilous position, and trotight tliem to terra firma- The young lady had not re ceived any bri!ije8,but had her drna. and sacqne torn in sever at places when dropping down between the sleepers. Her companion received several bruises, and his wardrobe will require ihe aid of a tailor. The escape was indeed a marvel ous one, and the brave, cool headed young lady was the he San Francisco, Cal, Dispatch. Success has attended the nov el expedient for resuming busi ness introduced by 'LI owes & Many and Uenry Clews & Co Tliey have opened new ac counts wiih.wlioever is willing to do business with them, the same to be entirely independ entofthe transactions previous to suspension, which are to be liquidated in due course ol time. Thus two ol the great houes which closed their doors are already at work again, YVbilo Fisk & Hatch are ready to resume outright. S. M. Penn, a merchant of Bainbridge, Ross county, left home a lew weeks ago to attend the Exposition, and about thp same time a young widow left on the same errand. Fenn did not return, and his securities on certain notes got uneasy and had him adjudged a bankrupt, which proceeding is now under way. His liabilities foot up in the neigborhond ol 2 5,000. A WtbTuKN slump orator, In the course of one ol his speech as, remarked: "Gentlemen, il the Par ay fix Ocean w or an inkstand, and the levee ground of our yearth wor a sheet of pa per I-couldn't begin lo write my love ot country onto it. Cutting Affray. Friday night the usual quiet of our village was dis turbed by a difficulty, at the Bunz House, in which a young man named Albert Uuest, lir ing in Green township, cut William Leonard and Daniel Kelly preity severely. The facts, as nearly as we can ascertain them, as brought out in the investigation before the Mayor, were as lollows: Young Guest and ope or two oilier genllemeu cama to the Fair accompanied by several ladies, and . concluded to re main over night, and went to the Bunz House to 'engage lodgings; Jhey could not get rooms as they desired, owint? to the crowded condition of the hotel, but were given the ladies sitting room, in which Ihey could spend the night Sometime during the evening, while the parlies were quietly enjoying themselves, a crowd of fellows, among whom was Leonard and Kelly, referred to above, came into the room; some of them appeared to be quite intoxicated, and began using coarse vulgar language, and doing some very unbe. coming things. Guest, who is quite a young man, and very quie', remonstrated with them, telling them thai Ihe room be longed to them and they did not want to be Interfered with; whereupon one of the intru ders struck him in the fare, and Ihe others joined in the assault. Young Guest drew his knife, which was a good sized two-bladed pocket knife, and began a kind ol well di reeled promiscuous cutting. He cut Dan. Kelly across the back of the neck, a gash near ly four inches lone; when Leonard coming in his way, he began on him. giving him one gash on the throat, nearly sev ering thejiiffular vein, another on the nose, another in the sMe, nnd another on the lee; at this juncture of 'he affair some one knocked Guest down with a chair, and the fellows thus released from Ihe fichr, and seeing the Mood running pretty freely, thoneht it about time to get out, and left the room. It is aleo (aid that George Cline had a cut in his coat on the hank. They ussist ed the wounded men to Dr. Hyde's office; where the doc tor dressed the wonnrls. Sat urday mornine Kelly was bronght before the Mayor, who bound him over to answer be fore the Court; Leonard was not able to be tried and he is yet in the hands ot tie author ities. Leonard. Cline, Kelly and a fellow by the name of Runyon Myers, from Nelson ville, are ail that have as yet been Identified an belntr in the Logan Republican. Prof. Hitchcock states that the total areaot the coal fields of the United St ates amounts to 230,659 square miles, besides the strata which belong to other formations than the car bonferous,as for instance those ol Virginia, of the tentones west of the Missouri river, and those in California. Little Robbies' mther reached for him with her slip per the other day for purloin ing the raspberry jelly, and was surprised to bear him laugh soon after. "What are you laughing at!" she asked. I was thinking howl fooled you by keeping my mouth shut," said Robbie. "It was Susie who hooked the jelly!" A lagbr beer-house in Hudson county, N. J., was formerly a church. The shrewd Teuton who now keeps it was about to erase an inscription paiuted over the door, but. on second thoughts he left the last line Untouched. It is: "Let him who Is athiretj come." An Agricultural Nabob. A Vienna letter pictures the pavillion of Frince Schwarzen burg, who is one of the great est nobles of the Austrian Em pire, and lamed for his devotion to agriculture. His depart ment at the Exhibition is fitted up gorgeously and fitted up with all manner of agricultural trophies. Tho Prince is one ot the greatest landed pioj rif tors of the Empire, and is one of the Emperor's chamberlain's and counsellors. The family is old, renowned, rich, famous for its doings in war, in diplomacy, in religion, and now in agricul ture. He has castles and lands in Btvaria and in Syria, in Up per and Lower Austria, in Hun gary and in Bohemia his pos sessions may be found farms, lands, breweries, forests, iron mines, iron foundries, bakeries, flour mills, brandy distilleries, forges, fisheries, and on his lands alone, dependent upon him there is a population ol over two hundred and fifty thousand souls. These estates are eighty miles in extent, and may be divided into a hundred different farms. He has won many gold and silvtr medals from tormer ex hibitions for excellence in ag riculture, and trophies are now to be seen on the walls of bis ancestral castle. He of course aspired to a medal from this ex hibition, and has entered one ol his estates for competition. The area of the estate is seventy- five thousand acres, one half ol which is devoted to forest cul ture, 20,000 acres to agricul ture and 14,000 to fisheries, etc. Altogether there are 532 build ings, of which there are twenty three breweries, four sugar re fineries, one oil manufactory, together with bakeries, water mills, saw-mills, kilns, forges, lurnaces, and a host of farms, cottages for laboreis, fisher men, (ureal era and 60 on. There are likewise schools, hospitals and churches scattered ovtr ihe place for the benefit of ten ants and workmen. To man age the estate there are six dif ferent bureaus; one caring for the rent, another for the do mains, another lor the forests and another for the fisheries. Mass. Ploughman. The First Kentucky Rifle. Says the Franklin (Kv.) Pa triot: In the Public Library building at Louisville, Ky.. hangs on a pair ot rustic hooks an old rifle and shot pouch. Near by is a piece of beech og, sawed a convenient length to set on end in the relic case. Posted up is an old letter, da ted 1780. "Only these and nothing more." The old pow- j der horn is stopped up by a plug of wood, which has been drawn so often by its former owner that its end is chewtd of close. But what of tbatf Reader, that stopple bears the marks of the teeth of Daniel Boone; that rifle was the first gun of the battle on the "dark and bloody ground." Though its lock Is gone, its stock is broken, and its barrel rusty, that gun used to be the terror of the aboriginal inhabitants of Kentucky, who feared and dreaded it, even when it and its owner were temporarily in their possession. A hundred years ago that old hero, equip ped by those trusty and dead ly accouttements, led a charm ed dramatic life, roaming over the forest of which he was lord, from the great "Conho wa," aa he spelled it, to the Mississippi. The beech log, carved by his butcher knife, which hangs by a leather string from the old belt, bears the in scription: ''Daniel Boone, 1774.

About the middle of last month, Mr. Geo. H. Fisher ten dered his resignation as Super intendent of the Lawrence Iron works of this place. The Di. rectors met the next day and promptly accepted it. It had been known forsome time that ere had been some irregular es in the cash book, occur. ng dnrlne the absence of tha Treasurer, Mr. Keepers, but not involving such indisputable testimony as the company de. sired, lo make the matter an is sue with Mr. Flher. For a long time past, entries had sn. neared for money paid for scrap ron which had never been r.-. ceived, but for which the cish account showed that pavmenfc had been made. Fictitious nmes, it seems, had been in. f roduced in the entries fo give hem a correct appearance. The amounts of money so taken were small but this thing had 'een runnin for so lon a HmA that the to'al abstraction of funis is currently reported to De in the neighborhood of ten housand dollars. The Law. rence Iron Works Co. Informix Mr. Fisher of this startling dis. repancv, and npon the basis of t a settlement was made before Mr. 'F. was allowed to wir. draw. The abstraction of tha funds occurred wholly, as wo understand, in Ihe purchase of crap iron. The actual amounts' we can not rroenre. but ihn Company has been fully secur ed. Rppor's on the street that the employes had been cheated out of anv portion of their wa. eesare wholly untrue, as all the shortcomings of Mr. Fisher occurred in his reputed pur chase of scrap. Mr.. Geo. II. Fisher has re sided in lronton for man v vears) and has always been highly es teemed for his integrity and pious deportment. Thel'abovo intelligence fell like a shock of disaster upon the entire com munity, Mr. F. is a member of the School Board and Surjerin tendent of a Sabbath School. Ironton Register. The Northern Pacific Railway The Northern Pacific Railway —Its Construction to be Resume I Next Spring.
