Manila, Nov 25. Rear-Admiral

from the hospital ship Relief, five
overdue at Guam, for which port she
sailed from this harbor November

Sorsorgon In Southern Luzon, and
stated that the ship was badly dam
aged by a typhoon which was en
countered on November 18during
j which the engines were disabled.
' Fire broke out on the Relief, but
was promptly gotten under control,
the crew of the ship showing splen
did discipline.
The Relief Is now preceedlng to
Manila under her own steam, repairs
to her engines having been made by
the crew. The news, confirms the
fears that were entertained here that
the Relief had met with disaster as
she did not arrive at Guam on time.

New York, Nov. 2o. Expressing firm
belief In spiritualism. Edward Ward

as tbe more prominent spirits he had
heard from aud then gave the name

good health.
Napoleon and the Roman Law.
'Napoleon I. bad an estraordlnaiy
Bind. He appeared never to forget
anything he cared to remember aud
assimilated information as the stom
ach assimilates food, retaining only the
valuable. An incident will Illustrate
this remarkable quality of his mind.
When forming the "Coda Napoleon"
he frequently astonished the council
of state by the skill with which he Il
lustrated any point .In discussion by
quoting whole passages frommemory
of the Roman civil law. The council
wondered how a man whose life had
been passed In camp came to know so
much about the old Roman laws, ini
tially one of them asked blm how he
acquired his knowledge.
"When I was a lieutenant," Napo
leon replied, "I was unjustly placed un
at arrest. Mv small Dilsou room con
tained no furniture except an old chair
and a cupboard. In the latter was a
ponderous volume, which proved to be
a digest of the Roman law. You can
easily Imagine what a valuable prize
the book was to me. . It was so bulky
.nrl the leaves were so covered with
marginal notes In manuscript that had
I been confined 100 years I need never
have been Idle. When I recovered my
liberty, at the end of ten daya, I was
saturated with Justinian and the de
cision of the Roman legislation. It
was then I acquired my knowledge of
the clvn law."

How a Dream Rescued Woman From
a Terrible Death.
Mr. Jones was a popular young busi
ness man in the city of B. His wife
was a woman of strong emotion and
most delicate perceptions. Between,
them there existed a rare sympathy
which extended to all tbe faculties.
Mrs. Jones fell ill, and after a tew
weeks' agony, during which her hus
band waited on her with a constancy
oot often seen, she died that is, she
ippeared to be dead. There was no
luestlon about It In tbe doctors' mind.
A certificate was Issued and an under
taker called In. But for the fortunate
circumstance that Mr. Jones was op
posed to embalming there would be no
story to tell unless It were of another
person apparently dead who was re
vived for a moment under the lunge of
the embalmer's knife.
Saved from that fate, Mrs. Jones was
laid out in her burial robe, placed In a
coffin and on the third day was burled
In a cemetery some distance away.
Her husband was greatly affected, so
much tuat his relatives feared an at
tack o'f melancholia. His uncle, wish
ing to arouse his spirits and divert his
attention, remained In the house the
night after the funeral and was a
valuable witness, as it proved, of an
event so astounding as to be almost
beyond belief. , v s.
For an hour or two that evening they
talked chiefly about the dead and then
went to bed. Mr. Jones, after tossing
npon bis pillow for a long time, fell
Into a troubled sleep. In the middle
of the night he heard a voice calling
his name, ."George, George!" The
tones were not familiar to blm; they
did not recall the voice of his wife.
Still conceiving himself the victim of
a dream, he again went ,to sleep. It
was daybreak before the voice -3vas
heard again, and this time it could not
be Ignored. He recognized it at last
as the voice of his wife in sore dis
tress calling upon blm. She cried:
"George! Save me! Save me, George!"
He sprang out of bod, trembling all
over. That despairing cry still rang In
his ears. So real was It that, although
he was awake and remembered per
fectly the death, the funeral and all
that happened in the preceding four
days, he searched the room for her
who had thrice called him by name.
Finding that ho was alone, he rush
ed into his uncle's room crying: "Get
np! Get up!. We must go to the ceme
tery! She is alive! She Is calling me!"
The uncle, skeptical as he was by
nature, was carried away by Jones
Impetuosity. Both men threw on some
clothing, and, while one harnessed a
horse to a light buggy, the other pro
cured spades. Thus equipped, they
drove to the cemetery at a gallop. The
sun rose as they leaped out at the
grave and began to dig.
Mrs. Jones had been burled tbe pre
vious afternoon. Her husband shovel
ed away the earth in a frenzy of en
ergy. 'It was firmly fixed In bis mind
that she had been burled alive and
that he might yet be in time to save
her. Inspired by his nephew's excite
ment, the uncle dug with a vigor al
most as great as Jones'.
Begrimed and disheveled, they at
last reached the coffin and wrenched
off the lid. Jones shrieked. His wife
was moving. She was trying feebly to
turn over in her narrow bed. She
gased at him with eyes that saw not.
She was unconscious of her situation.
He passed his arms about her and
lifted her out The two men removed
her from the grave, placed her in tbe
buggy and drove home. Physicians
were called in. Under close medical
care she slowly recovered. Every pre
caution was taken to guard her from
the knowledge of what bad happened,
and all who were in tbe secret pledged
themselves to silence lest tbe shock
of that revelation of her burial and
resurrection might prove fatal to her,
but the story leaked out later, when
Mrs. Jones got about again. Balti

naval hospital ship Relief, which Is
five days overdue at Guam, has ar

the typhoon which blew her out of

Hsmpson-Sellew Co would like to
New York Nov 25. While public
Interest ' In teh government's suit
against the Standard Oil Co has wan.
ed to some extent since the comple
tion of John D. Rockefeller's testi
mony there are several Important
witnesses yet to be heard. By no
means the least of these Is John D.
Archbold vice president of the com
pany, who followed Mr Rockefeller
on the witness stand. His examina
tion was well under way when court
adjourned last night. It is likely
that several days will be required to
complete It.
Mr Archbold was late in arriving
and his examination was delayed un
til nearly 11 o'clock. . Morltz Rosen
thal "of counsel for the Standard Oil
Co, developed from Mr Arihlolrt tes
timony regarding the early market
for oil. At first he said the prise of
oil depended upon the jobber and rs-
taller. He deshribed the increase in
the number of market stations for
oil from 130 In the early days to 3,-
573 in 1906 which he said were es
tablished by tbe Standard. In the
early days, Mr Archbold said the lob-
ber and retailer exacted extortionate
profits which caused complaint and
the Standard tried to get closer to
the consumer. . Oil was taken In bulk
cars instead of barrels to the mar
keting centers where It was distrib
uted to the consumer in wagons
This method he said not only increas
ed the fill trade but cheapened the
cost to the consumer.
Mr Archbold was still on the stand
this afternoon and his testimony was
not completed when adjournment was
taken until next Monday.
People Who Ride on .Waterville Line
Have a Grievance.
People who live In Waterbury and
work In Waterville and Oakville are
talking of forming an association to
fight the trolley company. They
claim that ' the accommodation Is
wholly Inadequate and., that when
one complains he gets nothing but
back answers."' Yesterday morning
things were lively in the center and
for a time it looked as though the tilt
would end in blows. The motorman
refused to allow anybody to stand on
the front platform, but as they had
no place else to hang on they refused
to step down and out. Then some
body higher up was appealed to whe
informed the passengers that they
would have to get off the front plat
form because the state law forbids
them to allow passengers to ride
there. The passengers refused to
leave and the trolleyman insisted
that they should and both were about
ready to tear into each other when
the matter was adjusted by making
room for the outward bound folks
on the insjde. When the car reached
Willow street It was bound out Wa
tertown way, the motorman opened
the door and let as many as could
crowd In jump onto the platform and
remain there until they reached their
destination. When the car reacbec
a point where employes of the new
rolling mill alight the jam was so
great they couldn't get out and they
had to engage In another scrap In
order to have the car stand long
enough to give them time to fight
tnrougn tne crowa ana arop oil i ne
passengers are blaming everybody
and some go so far as to charge all
the public officials and the newspa
pers with cowardice or indifference
towards, the rights of the people cn
these jH'ublic carriers. They w.nt
more room apd a more satisfactory
schedule and they are of the opinion
that the mayor and board of alder
men have the power to Inquire into
what this corporation Is doing and
and have such abuses as exist re
moved as far as such a thing is pos
siblefl If tbe state law forbids the
presence of passengers on the front
platform the people who had to get
off yesterday wonder why the law
does not apply at Willow street as
well as in Exchange place, but leav
Ing this aside, they state what every
body knows to be true, that nobody
would care to ride with the motor-
man if he could find a seat Inside
Tbe whole trouble, they claim, is due
to the fact that the company does
not put on a sufficient number of
cars. And as a consequence men and
women are up in arms and unless
something is done to remove the
source of complaint there will be
trouble before the opening of the xew
year, as near as we are on to It-

Nearly 200 persons, passengers aud
crew of the Ellerman line steamer
Sardinia, are believed to have per

destroyed by fire Just after she had
sailed for Alexandria, Egypt. The
Sardinia was scarcely a mile off
Grand Harbor when the first sign of
fire appeared, but with a strong wind
to fan the flames the whole ship soon
was ablaze and the passengers and
crew had scarcely a chance for their
lives. There was a wild scene of
panic on board as the rapidly spread
ing flames drove the passengers to
tbe rails and many of the excited
ones, not even waiting for tbe boats
to be lowered, plunged Into the soa.
Scores are believed to have been
drowned. Others, trapped by the
fire, were literally roasted to deatii

Wonderful Power In the Bird's Claws
and Legs.
While I cannot give any positive
proof of how much a bald eagle can
carry, I should suppose, declares a
writer in Forest and Stream, that he
could carry at least as much In pro
portion to his weight as a hawk or a
horned owl. I have the recorded
weight of a male bald eagle weighing
nine and a quarter pounds and a fe
male weighing twelve pounds.
A horned owl will weigh from four
to five pounds, and I bave several
times known one to carry off a large
house cat. One cat was very large,
and the owner told me he could hear
the cat cry as be was being carried
off. Now, any one who will weigh a
large bouse cat will find it to weigh
at least ten pounds.
I have seen a goshawk carry off a
hen fully twice its own weight, and I
have taken from a marsh hawk a very
large chicken which would weigh
more than twice what the hawk would.
The marsh hawk is one of our weak
est hawks, but he had carried this
chicken over a quarter of a mile. My
belief is that if a hawk or horned owl
can carry more than twice its weight
(and I know positively that they can)
then an eagle could, If occasion re
quired, do as much In proportion to
his weight, which would be to carry
eighteen or twenty pounds. '
Once when an eagle, shot through
the body with a rifle ball, lay on his
back I up ended a long road skid and
dropped it on him. Before it reached
hlnr he stretched up and caught it in
his claws and held it the length of
his legs above hira. I walked up on
the skid and stood above him, and be
easily held me and the skid, which I
should Judge would weigh more than
twenty pounds. I took pains to be
weighed tbe same day aud weighed
119 pounds. ' Put a stick In the claw of
a wounded eagle and let htm grasp a
small tree with the other, and a man
must be stronger than I ever was to
take tbe stick from blm.
