On Wednesday, the 12t.h instant, our renlders will renltnlher that this section was visited by a territic hail, rain and thunder storm. On that day Mrs. David McNeily, of Mautieldl, accompanied by a youth who is living in Mr. McNeily's family, but whose name we could not learn, was in the city trading. After the storm' had abated they started on their re turn to Manstield in a two-horse wagon. Night overtook them before they arrived at their destination. It was S o'clock and intensely dark when they reached Walnut creek, just this side of Manstield. The stream was swollen by the rains, but the young man deemed it fordable and tlrove in. The horses iimmediate.y sank, the wagon lloatied away froml the runlining gear and the haty :iand youth, who could not swim, were carried by the ragrilng, imully waters. luowni the stlream envelopedl in darkness. They mantaged to icliiig to the wagon bed, which way turn tg..

LEAPING INTO NIAGARA. The Second Suicide from the Sus penision Bridge. SUSPENSION 3BRIDGE, MaVy 2.-About 3 o'cu!ot'k this niiard'liollll W illin'u Allen, a farmer, living at Niat;iara Falls, Oair., en tered the bridge floin the Canadlai side, :a1nd shortly afterward a teamtll llowed. The driver of a team, who knew Allen, says he first saw Allen Forte dlistance i alvancet near tih ctir. or ' t1 Ihe bridge. The driver turneiid to talk ti ith his passengers, and whenii hi lookedl againl Ihe pledest.rian was not to b seen. When thle wagonll reached the Celitre of tine bridge the driver saw nit overcoat on the floor. At. the Am erican side the driver asked the gatekeeper if Allen hadl passed out. lie hat-d not been seenll here, at the railway gate above, or by eitheir olf thie Canadian gateli en. The! coat was identified as belonging to the missilng nmarn, and the only conclusion was lttiat he had I-aped from Ithe bridge. The gatemlan on the Canada side says thait Al!en appeared to be ilroxicated, and he is klnown to have been drinlkhulg heavily of late. Hle was nearily 24 years of age, and held good situations, which lie had lost through drink. While it clerk iin the West eMrn hotel here, some thlree years ago,~ he tr44 to aboothimuslft. Nothing had bee5 seen of the body at dtark. It is not vibible in or near the whirlpool in two or three days it will probably never be recovered. This is the second suicide from the bridlge. the first having been that of a man named Pierce, who took the fatal leap in 1870. His body was never recovered. Two of a Kind. In the offce of a Boston hotel, two men, living 4,000 miles apart, met the other (lay by accident, and one of thenm observed! : "Werett't you in the oil regiolis in 1867?" "I was." "'So w :i3 I.
