cod fusion was so great that even an approx
imate idea of the loss of life was impossi
blo to obtain. The first reports from
the pollen had it that forty people had prob
ably met their death, while the railroad of
ficials said that only two or three persons
were certainly known to have been 'kil'ed.
Within half an hour, however, five
mangled corpses had been dragged out of
the heap of broken timbers and twisted iron

home fiom an outing. The freight train
crew, when questioned, asserted that they
passed Miilard avenue tinder a clear :it;iial.
llillard avenue is but a short distance from

crew claim that when ttie crish came the red
lights on the rear of the Illinois Centr.il
train were burning with extreme dimness.

train was null '. ..;■ . uud was running at
a reckless r.ite of speed, and that to this
was due the fact that the engineer could
not .'top when he saw the Illinois Central

A metal that will nn-ll at BOCh a low tem
perature as 150 decrees Is certainly a cari
osity, but John E. White has mcceeded in
prodneing it. it is an alloy pomposed nf
lead, tin, bUmuth and cmhiiiuni, and in
weight, bardnesi and color resembles type
metal. So easily does it melt that if jou
place it on a comparatively cool i>;irt of the
stove, with a piece of paper under it, it will
melt without Urn paper being scorched.
Another peculiarity about it is that it will
not retain beat and becomes cold the mo

Washington, Sept. 21. — Henry A.
Brown, * as ex-Treasury Department sugar
expert, has sent a letter to the confeirees on
the Tariff Bill, cnibodyins a vigorous pro
test against the proposed sugar schedule.
He says the schedule as it stands is a com
plete surrender of the people's interests to
foreign producers find suuar refiners. It
again opens the door to the coloration
frauds, which were scorched but not killed
by the bill 0! March, ISB3. Brown wants a
provision added that all sugars not above
Xos. 13 or l(i (whichever line is adopted) in
color, testing above eighty decrees, shall
pay a duty of three-tenths a cent a round,
and two Imndredtlis of a cent per pound
additional for every degree or fraction of a
degree above eighty. Without some such
provisions the bounty plan will be a farce,
Such a provision would also afford some
protection to molasses boilers.

Profe-sor liettini, the celebrated Italian
naturalist who lias made a life-long study of
micro-organisms, and knows all that can bo
discovered about them with tho present im
perfect apparatus, says that them are good
and bad organisms, just the same as there
are good and bad people. Tho professor
has also learned by experiments with Hide
organisms that some of them arc natural
enemies, and when they niett will begin
battle at once and not stop till one or both
are killed. It was the result of the wonder
ful discovery ol this habit of tho bacteria
which led Dr. Fuller of the l'olyclinic Col
lege to try a novel experiment at North
Brother Island, where patients having con
tacious diseases are isolated.
'1 he patients that were treated are Isaac
Murray ami Benjamin HlcGill. Murray had
that loathsome unease, leprosy, and McGill
had cancer of tbe stomach and intestines.
There Is little choice, between the diseases so
far as the BtinVriuK of the patient goes, nnd
both :.i" stamped incurable in the medical
records. Both tatienti hate been sick for
several years, and the diseases had advanced
to the last stage, when death would have
been a welcome visitor. Cancer and leprosy
begin with an inflammation of tneskin tlue
to micro-organ ism, and the diseases are car
ried to the deep-seated tissues by infiltration.
Dr. Fuller conceived the idea 1 i trying the
effect upon the leprosy ol an inoculation of
cancer. It was barely possible that the two
genus might bo an antagonistic. The injection
of cancer was made in toe abdomen and in
ouch leg of thi! leper, and the effect was
anxiously awaited. M lie leper took no inter
est in the proceeding, as so iniiny things had
been done to him without being of benefit,
until about a week after the operation.
Then he opened his eyes and began lo look
around him. ll is body was filled with new
and strange sensations land houo gleamed
through tho misery in his soul. Strength
came into tho wasted muscles, the vital or
gms ]nci;eil Up, and thu nerves began to
tingle with new life. His body slud the
coat of irales, the ulcers healed, the joints
became limber and strong, the delusions
disappeared from his mintf, and over all
came thu briabt glow of health. Wonder
upon wonders I A leper cured I Such U
certainly the foot and thu leper is as lively
as a cricket to-day. When the good effect
of the injection of cancer was seen the re
verse treatment was tried.
Some of the foul matter was taken from
nu nicer in tho leper's leg and injected into
HcGHFs arms, The effect was rapid and
marvelous. There was, at first, a great de
pre-sion nnd sinking of vitality and then a
sudden change, when health seemed to come
back with a bound. Several other injections
were made from time to time, and thu effect
continued to be beneficial. The surface over
which tho cancer had extended was large,
nnd, being internal, did not heal as quickly
as the leper, but the improvement was
steady, and the pattest Ci.n now take food
without any after trouble. Everything now
points to an absolute cure both ol the Cancer
nnd leprosy, a consummation devoutly to be
Iveprosy and cancer have baffled the skill
of physicians everywhere for ages, and a
constant search ia being kept up for some
specific that will strike at the root of the
evil. Who can say that the spccilic has not
been discovered ? Suppose t lie micro-organ
isms that make cancers and lepiosy aru
natural enemies, aud when they meet they
light aud destroy each other in the body ?
Then there cau only be one result, and that
is tho cure of the disease. Other experi
ments are being made in the same line, and
10 far with good results, and it may be that
a way has been discovered tj rid humanity
of tho terrible ravages of cancer mid leprosy
nnd of other diseases by bringing antago

Gr.ipc-pickiug is at Its height. Now, instead
of peaches, plums and pears, our wagons are

in many cases to bed of the wagon is piled

which was pierced to a dike three feet wide,
was attracted by the extraordinary move
ments of a huge black spider in the middle
of a ditch.
Closer examination showed that the crea
ture had caught a fish. She had fastened
upon it with a deadly grip just on the for
ward side of the dorsal fin, and the poor fish
was swimming round and round slowly or
twisting its body as if in imin. The head of
its black enemy was sometimes almost pulled
under the water, but the strength of the fish
would not permit an eiili'O submersion, It
move 1 its fins as if exhausted and often
rested. Finally it swam under a. floating
leaf near thu shore and made a vain effort
to dislodge the spider by scraping against
the under side of the leaf.
The two had now closely approached the
bank. Suddenly the long blacK 1-gsuf the
spider emerged - from the water, and the
hinder ones reached out and fastened upon
the irregularities of the sidy of tht; ditch.
The spider commenced tugging at his prize
in order to land it. The observer ran to

leaving his friend to watch ' the struggle.
During au interval of six or. eight minutes'

ceiling of the second slory. lie was heid
between the cruel plmies by the neck, his
body hanging down, But for the rapid action
of one of the youth's fellow-workmen his
head would have been torn from his body.
Frank Leary, aged 21, formerly living it
3i)7 Freeman avenue, lias been employed at
Crane, Breed & Co.'s factory for several
months in the capacity of a laborer. He
was at work cleaning the roof of the factory

the dirt and sweepings and carry them to
the top Moor. Tin lie would make usn of
the elevator and leave the pails uti the first
lie had completed a trip down md en
tered the elevator to co back upstairs. Ha
lost control of the machine, and it rose with
frightful velocity. lie togged at tho rope in
a vain endeavor to retard its motion, but in
vain. While the danger was Dot an extra
ordinary one, poor Leary lost his head.
When he arrived midway between the sec
ond and third floor he attempted to clamber
out. He was too slow. His body was hang
ing over and ho was about to drop to Hie
floor below, when his neck was caught, as
above described, between the floor of the
.elevator and the ceiling of the second story.
A sickening, crunching noise and it was all
1 over for poor Leafy, fits neck was broken
and death must have been Instantaneous.
An employe who had witnessed the acci

corpse from furtlier disticurcment. Tho
"hoist" was lowered a few inches and Leary's
Inanimate body tell to the floor below. Th«
science of the doctor summoned availed
naught; he could but certify that death had
dunu its work.
