The extraordinary revelation was
made at a recent meeting of the State
Havings' Bank association of Now
York, rays Leslie's Weekly, that there
was in the savings l a iks of the Em
pire state $1,500,000 in dormant ac
counts. The saviugs banks of New
York t-tate now hold about $300,0 ;0,
000 . of the people's money and the
dormant accounts of $1,500,000 re
main without any evidence that their
owners will ever call for them. Borne
of them have been dormant for over
50 years. One bank in the city of
Albany reports that its unclaimed ac
counts aggregated over $27,000. Some
of these accounts have claimauts --who
will appear in due season. We must,
indeed, be a rich and prosperous
nation when we can overlook a little
item of over $1,500,000 lying un
claimed iu the savings banks of a
single titate.
The o:t-repeafed statement that "it
n worry that kills, not work," is con
tradicted by an eminent specialist in
nervous disorders. This authority
declares that neither work or worry
are baneful in themselves, not even
when carried to excess, but that it is
the monotonous, unbroken continua
tion of tho excess of either that is ex
ceedingly injurious. Every form of
prolonged mental strain without e.
complementary relaxation in some
form of physical activity acts disas
trously upon the nerve cells, while
the continuation of worry which
in itself is s far wholesome as it
shows a commeudably sensitive orga
nization, terminates iu the ruin of
the nervous system. The athlete, he
declares, must be recommended to
take up some Hue of mental tdndy,
aud the scho'ar must be encouraged
to ado t home regular form of physi
cal exercise. Absolute rest is fre
quently as ineffective iu restoring
an overwrought nerxous system as
the whole gamut of nervine, stimu
lants, baths, niasa-;-e and t-kvtrieity.

Further Particulars of Destruc
tion of Armored Train.
Tlia Transvaal Fla I lUled Over New
C'nstln -Kimberly Mines
Are Threatened.
The London Daily
Town correspondent,
Moil's Capo
Hunday evening, says:
"Kimberly is besieged and the
Boers aro massing in force. No de
tail'., however, are obtainable.
"Tho Boers have cut the railway at
Belmont, have seized tho Spyfontein
railway etatiou and constructed forti
fied earth works. Thero are strong
defending forces at Modder bridge
and tho Orange river bridgo.
"The object of those energetic oper
ations is believed to be the capture of
Cecil Bhodes. Kimberly is now iso
lated, both railway and telegraphic
communication being cut."
The Daily Mail's Glencoe Camp
correspondent under date of Sunday
"A force under Commandant Viljoen
from Spitzkep, occupied New Castle
Saturday afternoon, aud it is reported
planted their flag over tho town hall.
"It is rumored that tho Boers have
captured a police patrol of six men at
Dejagers, on the Buffalo river."
So far as actual news is concerned,
very little change in the situation is
noticed. The state affairs at Mafeking
can only be conjectured. The occupa
tion of New Castle by the Boers was
prepared for and expected, the place
having been abandoned by the British.
The Boers are reported by press dis
patches to be menacing Kimberly.
Doer YTera On f he Watch.
Further details are at hand regard
ing the destruction of the armored
train at Kraaipan. These show that
Captain Nesbitt, who was in command
of the train, was warned at Maribago
that the Boers held the line. He re
plied that he was bound to proceed.
IS earing Kraaipan, the train dashed
into a culvert that had been blown up
by the Boers, who were lying iu wait
for the train. The Boer artillery im
mediately opened fire aud a desperate
fight appears to have ensued, lasting
four hours, with the odds ereatlv
against the British. The precise de
tails are uncertain.
It seems, however, that a police
patrol, attracted by the firing, ap
proached within about two thousand
yards of Kraaipan, saw the train
ditched with the Boer artillery still
pounding at it, but noticed no re
sponse. The Boers seemed afraid to
approached until the wreck was com
plete; and the police feared, as there
was no sign of life near the train, that
the entire force had perished in a des
perate attempt to get the train back to
Mafeking, where they know it was
anxiously awaited withitsdoad of guns
ana ammunition.
It is reported that tho Boers lost
heavily, but there is no means of ver
ifying this. Two miles of rails were
torn up.
There is no authoritative confirma
tion of the report that a battle has
been fought in Natal between Sir
General George Stewart White and
the Orange Free State troops, although
there is no question that the Boers
have crossed the frontier at several
ma:y earthquake victims.
Death List on the Island of Coran Bald to
Have Ileen Four Thousand.
Official dispatches from Batavia, cap
ital of The Netherlands Indies, con
firm the reports regarding the recent
earthquake on the island of Coran.
Not only the town of Atnboi, on tlia
south side of the island, was destroy
ed, but several other villages were
wrecked. The official advices declare
that no fewer than 4,000 people were
killed and hundreds of others serious
ly injured.
Marcliand Wanted Revenge.
Advices from Paris state that Major
Marchand, who commanded the French
expedition in the Soudan, wished to
go and fight for the Boers for revenge
for being compelled to withdraw from
Fashoda, but the government refused
him permission. "
England's Keply to President Pol
ger'n Ultimatum.
Following is the text of the British
reply to tlie Boer ultimatum sent by
Chamberlain to Milner, high minister,
at 10:45 p. m., October 10, 1839
"Her majesty's government has re
ceived with regret the peremptory de
mands of the South African republic,
conveyed in your telegram of October
9th. You will inform the government

Vessel Burned to Water's HdRC
and Only Those Who Jumped
Overboard Were Saved.
A New York special Fays: The
Bridgeport steamer Nutmeg State was
burnod in Long Island sound off
Sauds Print, L. I., at sunrise Sutnr
day morning and ten persons were
burned to death or drowned.
Most of the passengers who escaped
Buffered nothing more than shock from
immersion in chilly water, and only
fourporsons were sent to tho hospital.
The steamer was run to the beach' at
tho outbreak of the flames and burned
to the water's edge.
The bodies of two victims of
tho disaster drifted ashoro about noon
on the beach, a mile east of the blazing
wreck. ,
One was tho body of a woman
about twenty-eight years old, and tho
other a girl of four years.
Tho Nutmeg State, with over a hun
dred persons on board, bound from
Connetticntt towns to New York, was
discovered on fire about half-past five,
when she was within a few miles of
Sands Point, L. I.
The flames were in the bow of tho
boat between the forward cabin
and the donkey engine room. Tho
fire was on the main deck, and
seemed to bo a small affair; so
Captain C. M. Brooks, not wishing to
needlessly alarm the passengers, or
dered the crew to work as quietly as
possible with buckets and hose. For
about twenty minutes the flames did
not seem to be dangerous, and the men
appeared to have them in control.
Suddenly they burst into a furious
blaze amidship.
Baggageman Samuel Jaynes was de
tached from the fire fighters and sent
to alarm the passengers and all the
members of the crew who were in the
forward part of the boat, lie ran
through the passageways on the sev
eral decks, shouting to the passengers
on the several decks, shouting to the
passengers and the sleeping crew. He
remained amidships crying out warn
ings until he was forced by the flames
and stifling smoke to jump overboard.
On the Alleged Confession of a Necro Bur
glar Guilt Is Denied.
At Atlanta, Ga., Saturday, Vincent
F. Pickert, son of A. F. Tickert, was
arrested on a warrant charging him
with burglary. This was a sensational
development of the sensational arrest
of A. F. Pickert, which occurred three
days before, and who was released un
der a $2,000 bond. Immediately af
ter his arrest young Pickert was also
released on a 2,000 bond.
These two arrests of father and son,
two men who have hitherto stood well
in the community, and who are well-to-do
financially, is the result, the city
detectives claim, of the discovery of
one of the most notorious and gigantic-
"fences" that has ever been known
in Atlanta.
The older Pickert was a prominent
jeweler in Atlanta for many years.
His son is a-lawyer by profession and
a pawnbroker by trade.
Upon the siatement of a confessed
negro burglar, Will Etheridge, con
fined in the Tower, backed up by evi
dence which the officers claim is
strongly corroborative, it is expected
to convict the two men, one of bur
glary and other of receiving stolen
The Pickerts deny their guilt. Their
friends claim for them that tho evi
dence against them is nothing more
than a lie made up by a self-confessed
thief and that there is absolutely noth
ing to lack it and that there will
never be
Two Prisoners In Valdontn, Ga , Jail Wre
lvcmovel In Time.
Sunday night the county jail at Yal-
dota was for the second time the scene
0f a mob who were after the two pris-
oners who murdered Henry Vickers,
some three weeks ago. The citizens
of Valdosta, were in someway notified
of the coming of tho mob, and the two
prisoners Jim Goddin aud Wash
Powell were put on the train and
sent to Waycross.
The mob was about four hundred
strong. The jailer assured them that
the two prisoners had been taken away
j to Waycross, but a thorough

Tho first day'" trip of the Brynn
Gocbel party through Kentucky com
menced at Cairo, III., the first speech
of the day being made at Bardwell,
Ky., iu tho presence of a good-natured
and good-sized crowd. Tho special
train reached the Kentucky town at
8:150 o'clock Monday morning.
In his opening address Mr. Bryan
demonstrated his pnrpowe to support
tho Democratic ticket headed by Wil
liam Ooebel for governor. Ho held
that the question of whether the next
president of the United States was a
Democrat depended largely upon
whether Kentucky was Democratic
this fall. He held that any Demo
crat who stands for the Chicago plat
form is better thau a Republican.
In the presence of the euemy it was
not a time to air personal grievances.
The real question was one as to prin
ciples between the parties.
In national matters he assailed the
attitude of President McKinloy as re
lated to the Philippine islands, assert
ing that the president's declaration
that congress would care for the
islands was a subversion of the decla
ration of independence and tho first
to be openly mado by a president of
tho United States.
Tho declaration of the president
suggested the use of the word parha
meat instead of congress and recalled
tho colonial days and policy of King
George. Tho islands did not aud
could not belong to us simply because
we hod paid a decaying monarchy for
The silver question and the Chicago
platform as a whole form the vital
questions to lie solved in the coming
political contest of 1900.
At Fulton there was a good crowd
Mr. Bryan said:
"You can do some pretty good yell
ing here, but I want to tell yoti if you
elect Mr. Goebel governor and Joe
Blarkburn senator, there will be more
yelling in Nebraska, than there is
here. They say a man does not want
another to do better than himself, but
I am not selfish when I say I want yon
to give Mr. Goebel a larger majority
than von did me is 180G. While I
appreciate the splendid vote of 1890,
I believe our party is stronger than it
was then and there are always sixteen
reasons to one why ifc should be so,
The largest crowd of the day was
met at Mayfield, and the greeting to
the visiting party was the warmest,
Mr. Bryan and Mr. Goebel were the
speakers, the former delivering tho
most elaborate speech of the day.
Nesroea Keoent Heine Ordered Out of
Oxford Knitting Mills.
At 10 o'clock Monday night the
Barnesville. Ga., police reported to
Mayor Kennedy that forty to fifty ne
groes were assembled near the square,
with rifles and clubs, evidently prepar
ing for a midnight attack. The mayor
at once ordered out the Barnesville
Blues and in less than an hour the
city was under military rule and every
vestige of a mob had disappeared.
The cause of the mobilization of
negroes is supposed to bo the outcome
of the strike which occurred at the
Oxford knitting mills last week. The
white operatives refused to work with
negroes. The matter w:as adjusted,
but not until every negro had left the
mill. Numerous notices have been
posted by unknown parties warning
negroes not to return to their occupa
tions. This is supposed to have
aroused the negroes.

ly injured that an unusual surgical
operation had to be performed upon
