DONOVAN'S LFAP TO DEATH.
THE FAMOUS BRIDGE JUMPER MEETS HIS FATE IN ENGLAND. He Sprang from Hungerford Bridge, Lon don,. Only to Terminate His Reckless Career-He Eclipsed A11 Until Matthew Byrne Beat His Record Last Friday. (New York Star, Aug. 8.) Fearless Lawrence M. Donovan, the bridge jumper, has made his last jump. The following cablegram, received at the Police Gazette office yesterday, tells the sad storyof his death: "LoioN, Aug. 7.-Larry Donovan this morning jumped from Hungerford Bridge and was drowned. G. W. Arumssox." Lawrence Donovon, or "Larry," as he was familiarly called by his friends, seemed to know no fear. He first ga'ed notoriety by jumping from the Brooklyn Bridge on August 28.1886, eclipsing Steve Brodie's famous drop by about fifteen feet. Larry was born at No. 55 Frankfort street, New York, twenty-six years ago. His parents, who were natives of the Green Isle, gave him a fair education. The young man, while dutiful, managed to have his own way a good deal. His father, Lawrence Donovan, saved a little money by hard work, but just as Larry had arrived at the age when he could enter college the'old gentleman wrote a book, entitled "Com man Sense Facts" He-was unable to finda frm willing to put it on the market, and published it him self. It wasalmost a complete failure, and the old gentleman sank all his ready money tn it. It was then that Larry was sent to work to help support the family. After knocking about from place to place for a few years he joined the regular army, but the military routine did not suit his roving disposition, and when his enlistment time was up he came back to this city. He se cured a position in a downtown printing office, and in a short time found himself a fRfledged preman. The death of Professor Odlum, who was killed in jumping from the Brooklyn midge on May 24, 1885,- created a good deal of excitement throughout the city. It was thought that his sad end would pre vent others from undertaking the feat, but inJuly of the following year Steve Brodie d ped from the trestle-work of the bridge y into the river, and electrified the residenta of this city. He was the first mad who had made the leap in safety, and it- was thought he had done it more by good luck than anything else. No one dreamed that anybody would everatempt the jump again, considering Brodle'amiraculous escape from death, but on August 28, a month later, Donovan dthe leap in safety from a point fifteen feshlgher than where Brodie had dropped. Justice Dufy in the Tombs Police Court 8ned Larry $10, which was paid by Rich *d K. Fox. The young man said he had made the jump for a wager of $500. He refused to say with whom the wager, but ftwas said that Richard K. Fox was the man.' Shortly. after this Larry told his frienadsthat be'was going to dive head fore most of the bridge. This was communi cited to the police, and when he attempted oerform- the feat he was arrested by a ie .policeman~ who had been waiting for b1mand gainarraigned before Judge Duffy. The latter committed him to the Tb ,and only released him after he had S omisedtodo-no more jumping about the Larry had been In prison for several eeks and when discharged immediately -stlielty.

Donovan probably jumped at loor tide, and as the river is very aballow became wedged in the mud and *was drowned.. hA soon as the news of his death was re etved a reporter of the Star called at Don ovan's mother's home at No. 58 New Chambers street, and not wishin'g to shock the old lady, told her that Larry had juped in London and was badly injured. Tewoman's grief was so pitiful that he did not dare to tell her he was dead. Her two daughters, Mary and Tassie, who are b~otha younger than Larry, were soon in tears, and he was compelled to beat a hasty *retrest. For several years Larry's father has been slgtyderanged. His sisters, who are emlydas feather curlers, man age, with temoney sent by Larry now and then, to support the little household. The Greatess American Gun. The snanessful trial of the new ten inched rifled breech-loading gun, the argest ever constructed in this country, is an event or more than ordinary im ptnc.With a projectile weighing fie hundred pounds and a powder chr.of two hundred pounds, an initial veoiyof two thousand feet was ob toined frit at the Annapolis proving grounds recet.Iti intended to have of pwe.which would dutess in ores its muzale velocit to the esti .mated twenty-one hunde feetpe .acnds.n With the latter charge its fve hundred-pound projectile could effect a naato of twenty-three and one inches in wrought iron. The weight of this gnis about fifty eight thonnanda unsand that of its .arriage aboutnrytothousand. It was found that the turret carriage, which was in this instance designed for the Miantonono, .also worked in a very antisfactory way. The addition of this calibre to the six-inch guns and eight inch gusalready Introduced must be readdas agreat step forward in Amiian heavy gun manufacture, Of the vessels thus far constructed, none would be able to carry a ten-inch steel Sof this character.

The armored vessels wil take these and still larger ealibres. With this success achieved, the twelve-inch gun will next be attempt FARM FEEDING STUFFS. Analyses of their Constituents, Made at the Experimental Station in Columbia. Explanatory Remarks.-To prevent possible misunderstanding, and for the convenience of those who may not be familiar with the terms employed in ex pressing the results of analyses of feed ing stuffs, the following explanations are offered: Moisture.-All vegetable substances, however dry they may seem to be, con tain water. This is generally designated moisture, and is determined by the loss in weight of the substance on drying it for several hours at 100 degrees C., the boiling point of water. Ash.-The mineral or non-volatile residue remaining after carefully burn ing the vegetable matter, is known as ash. Some of its constituents are im portant substances. In the ash also are contained most of the manurial matters withdrawn by the plant from the soil. Crude Fat.-On extracting dry vege table matter with ether, the fat or vege table oils, with small quantities of wax, coloring matter, etc., are obtained. This extract is called crude fat. Crude Fiber.-An agricultural plant is an tion of microscopic cells. The of these cells consist of cellu lose. When the plant is young and tender, the cellulose is largely digesti ble; but, as the plant grows, these cell walls thicken and become tough and woody. In this condition the cellulose, or crude fiber, is no longer digestible; and is not acted upon by dilute acids or alkalies. Cotton and linen are examples of almost pure cellulose. Crude Protein, or Crude Albuminoids. -For the sake of uniformity these terms are made to embrace all of the nitro geneous substances of the plant, viz., true albuminoids, amides and nitrates. The true albuminoids, which form much the larger part of the nitrogenous com pounds present in the plant, constitute a group of closely related bodies, strongly resembling albumin in their properties. In the animal they form the muscles, and most of the solid matter of the blood and nerves. The white of an egg, muscular fiber, gluten and casein, are familiar examples of this important group of bodies. The amides, generally present in much smaller quantity, are substituted ammonia compounds, Sup posed to have a much lower nutritive value than the albuminoids. Non-Nitrogenous Extract, or Carbo hydrates.-Here belong the rmainder of the substances contained in the plant, after substracting Moisture, Ash, Crude Fat, Crude Fiber and Crude Protein. They are compounds free from nitrogen, and are soluble in either water, dilute acids, or dilute alkalies; hence the terms Non-nitrogenous, or Nitrogen-free Ex tract. The starches, sugars, gums, pectin, organic acids, and the tender parts of the vegetable fiber are the more important of these compounds. The albuminoids and fats are the most valuable constituents of foods, although importance attaches also to the nitro gen-free extracts and even to the fiber and ash.

THE SUNKEN ENGLISH SLOOP-OF-WAR WITH MILLIONS ON BOARD In Twelve Fathoms of Water-Dr. Pan coast Brings the News from the Break water and Hurries to New York. (Philadelphia Times, Aug. 9.) Dr. Seth Pancoast, of No. 931 Arch street, who has spent $12,000 in the past two years trying to locate the sunken Eng lish sloop-of-war De Braak, came up from the Breakwater yesterday morning, and after remaining at his house long enough to write three or four telegrams, hurried to the Broad street station and took a train for New York. He was excited over the discovery made by Capt. Charles A. Adams and Lieut Geo. P. Blow, of the navy, who are positive that they have at last located the De Braak, which was supposed to have on board $10,000,000 in gold and silver when she went down on the 25th of May, 178. Dr. Pancoast went to New York to get four or five of the best divers that money can hire. He will hurry back to this city, and, if possible, will leave the Broad street station for Lewes on the 3.01 train this afternoon over the Delaware Division of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Balti more Road. THE DISCOVERY. The steamboat City of Long Branch, which was fitted up at an expense of sev eral thousand dollars, left this city ten days ago, thoroughly equipped to spend the summer and next winter searching for the sunken sloop. Captain Adams, who has been in the navy twenty-five years, and Lieutenant Blow had charge of the expe dition, and all the necessary charts and nautical implements were furnished by the Government. The discovery of the sloop was made late on Tuesday, when a diver brought up a petrified piece of teak wood, of which the De Braak was built. The grappling irons were covered with verdigris and strong evidences that the irons had come in contact with the copper which was on the De Braak at the time she sunk. The City of Long Branch lies directly over the supposed wreck. The irons were lowered in twelve fathoms of water three-quarters of a mile out from the Breakwater. The same spot, according to calculation, where the grappling irons came in contact with copper two years ago. The present expedition, which is being carried on on scientific principles, it was decided was to be the final attempt to find the hidden treasure. THE GOVERNMXENT's BIG SLICE. The Government entered into a contract with the International Submarine Com pany, of New Haven, having its place of business in this city, on the 25th of August, 1880, in conformity with a contract also entered into between Dr. Pancoast and the International Submarine Company. The Government's contract was made on the strength of section 3,755 of the revised statutes of the United States, which says: "The Secretary of the Treasury is author ized to make any contract which he may deem for the interest of the Government for the preservation, sale or collection of any property or the proceeds thereof which may have become wrecked, abandoned or become derelict, being within the jurisdic tion of the United States or which ought to come to the United States." The Goverment is to receive ten per cent. on the amount found. A syndicate, composed principally of Philadelphians, is interested in the recov ery of the treasure. James J. Kane is at the head of it, although Dr. Pancoast, who has so persistently worked to find the treasure, is the man who organized the syndicate and he is the man who delivers the shares of stock and recevgaJPs6eme One hundred sharem *e~ were issued at $800 a share. About eighty of the shares we p to the middle of July, and e cashier of the Second National Bank, of Hoboken, Is believed to have purchased the remaining twenty shares. The certifi cates of stock read: "It is estimated that the 'Break' con tined treasures valued at from ten to twenty millions of dollars. In case ten millions are recovered this certificate will entitle ten thousand dollars and a pro rata upon any greater or lesser amount received by said third party." GOD ANYD szLvER AN~D FRcIoUs svoN~s. The prize was taken to Halifax, where the following record was found: "The sloop-of-war De Braak, Captain James Erew, captured off the Capes of Delaware, in 1798, a Spanish vessel, the Don or St. Francis Xavier." Capt. Charles Sanborn, a noted subma rine diver, who in 1887 contemplated secur ing a concussion from the Governm'ent for raising this vessel, visited Halifax for the purpose of getting information. He secured a newspaper published.in 1'798. The fol lowing is a notice givin an account of the loss of the vessel; 'H. B.M. sloop-of-war De Break, we arc informed, was capsized off the Capes of Deleware, returning from a successful cruise on the Spanish Main. She had on board seventy tons of copper and an immense amount of treasures, con sisting of gold and silver bars and precious stones." Captain Sanborn afterwards went South, with the intention of returning the following spring and commencing opera tions. While there he was taken sick and did. A Railway Catechism.

In Australia several attempts have been made to educate the blacks out of their nomadic habits and into civil life, but in almost every case the philanthropic effort has failed to eradicate the instincts of barbarism. Mr. Ballon, in "Under the Southern Cross," tells the romantic story of one of these failures. A young native, a lad of 10 years, was taken from his wild life and brought to Brisbane to be educated and to grow up in the home of a white family. Those engaged in the experiment secured the consent of the boy, of his parents and of the tribe. They did their best to make him com fortable and happy. During nine years everything promised success. At school he proved an apt scholar and'became a favorite with the pupils and teachers. He was dressed like his associates and seemed so satisfied with a civilized life that many good men and women looked forward to the day when he would exert a strong and beneficial influence upon his own people. One day, shortly after he had passed his nineteenth birthday, he was missing from Brisbane. No one knew what had become of him except one young lady, and she kept her knowledge to herself. After months of search he was found at his former home living the nomadic life of a naked savage. No inducement could prevail upon him to return and live among his friends. At last there came out the romance which revealed the secret of the young black's nine years' sojourn among the whites of Bris bane. He had fallen in love with the lovely daughter of the white family with which he made his home. She recipro cated his attachment, for he was a fine specimen of his race, and her influence made him studious and a sojourner at her father's house. When his hereditary feelings begat a longing for the bush and a nomadic life she restrained him from returning to his tribe. At last he frankly told her that he loved her too sincerely to suggest that she should go with him to his savage home, but that he was unhappy and restless and must seek his native wilds. She had the good sense not to protest against the separation, for he would not remain and she would not go. Accepting the inevitable, they parted; he to live as a savage and she to die. Traiued Nurses. A young hospital physician at Buffalo said the other night: A good many sen timental people imagine that it's just lovely tobe a nurse. They think how sweet it must be to bathe the placid brow of the sufferer, to put cool pillows under his head, and to talk to him in low, soothing tones. But when you have alighted from yo'r romantic balloon on the hard-ground of fact it doesn't seem so lovely, after all. There is no dilletanteism in a hospital. The girl that daubs plaques and strums the piano badly is not the kind of girl you find doing hospital work. Almost all the work that a nurse has to do in a hospital is drudgery of the most disillusioning kind, and only girls that have the real desire to do the work and to succeed in it, whatever discomforts it may entail on them, ever go through with it. That is why these trained nurses are an extra ordinary band of young women. For the sake of proficiency in their profession they have gone through more than most girls dream of. They deserve all the praise and honor that are bestowed upon them. ueocrazie Gains in Kentucky. Horxnsvitra, Ky., August 7.-The election just held -here has been the most exciting one in years.

Four men are re ported killed in Indian Creek, which is also in Knox county, but as yet have been un able to learn the particulars, except that it was about politics. A cynical bachelor offers to prove by sta tistics that two wives elope to one husband, that three widows remarry to one widower, and that seven-tenths of the engagements which are broken are broken by women. The hotels that are swell habitually carry this quality into their bills. ~WHOM TH E LADIES' FAVORITE.
