We have had a few days genuine winter, notably, November and January but nothing like a severe storm has been experienced this winter.

SPORGION DEAft. to Vaasu Ea(IUh Prsaehw VMM Away After a l.mg Illneaa. London, Feb. 2. Rev. Charles H. Spnrgeon died at Mentone at 11:05 p. m. Mr. Spurgeon's end was painless. He remained conscious to the last. His wife and Dr. Fitz Henry and Mra. Thorns were present when he died. Charles Haddon Spurgeon wan born at Kelvedon, Essex, Jane 1!, 1834. Ho was educated at Colchester, and became a village preacher and tract dis tributer at the little village of Faver sham, near Cambridge. He there became known as "the boy preacher," and in that village delivered his maiden sermon. When but 1? years old he became pastor of a small Baptist chapel at Waterbeach, preaching in a barn, to which gre«f crowds flocked to hear him. The fame of his elo quence and earnestness spread rapidly, and invitations to preach poured in upon hitn from all parts of England. In 1853 Mr. Spurgeon made his first ap pearance before a London congregation, and so pronounced was his success that it was found necessary to enlarge the church building. While this work whk being done he preaciied at Exeter hall, and so groat was his popularity that it was found necessary to turn away hundreds of those who crowded to hear him. In 185ti the "Tabernacle" was built to accommodate the constantly increasing numbers of Mr. Spurgeon's congregation. Many hundreds of the great preacher's sermons have Iteen printed, not only in English, but in most of the languages of continental Europe. The Tabernacle, when Mr. Spurgeon occupied its pulpit, was largely frequented by Americans in London. It is doubtful if any English theologian of the time has more forcibly impressed his personality upon his genera tion than has the preacher whose death has just been announced. In hifl illness, which began seven months ago, he has had world-wide sympathy and his devoted congregation have been untiring in their petitions to the I^ord for his recovery. OBJECTIONABLE IMMIGRATION./ London Paper* Lift l'j» Their Yoteap Agalnat It. London, Feb. 2. -The Daily News, The Evening News and other papers here have broken out in protest against the stream of undesirable immigration allowed to pour into and out of England without let or hinderance. The Evening News says that London continues to be, more than ever, the home of destitute aliens. Official returns show that last year 88,142 immigrants entered the city. Here most of them have stopped, adding to the worst part of the population of the East End. All efforts to Anglicise these people have failed. Filth, disease and crime, according to The News, are unrestrained among them. "The pros pect before us," it adds, "is an influx of 40,000 of these foreigners yearly. How," The News asks, "will Englishmen be able to live unless this stream is dammed?" The News then predicts that there will be an erplosion some tiaae from the accumulation of this objection able element and forces it is sure to gen erate against it. The citizens of London, by their apathy, according to the paper mentioned, are "earning the anathejnus •f posterity." Xearroea and Italians Fight. Pittsburg, Feb. 2.—A riot occurred in Schnot's saloon, at Smithton, twenty five miles from here, between drnnken Italians and negro coal miners. Charles Henzie, an Italian, was shot in the ab domen, and Los Anderson, a negro, was shot through the neck. Renzie will die. Four of the negroes, including the leader, were arrested. They were given a hearing, charged with riot and felou ious shooting with intent to kill. All were sent to jail at Greensburg to await the results of their work. Poatolllce Robbers Convicted. Keokuk, Ia., Feb. 2. —Matt Andrews was found ghilty in the United States court of robbing the postoffice at Swedes burg, Ia., last July, while John Murphy, alias George Lee, was convict ed on the charge of having stolen stamps in his possession. They are members of an organized gang of post office robbers, having headquarters in Chicago, and employed the Dest legal talent in the state to defend them. Robbers Sent Up for Life. Denver, Colo., Feb. 3,—"Peg Leg" Eldrige and Bert Curtis, who robbed the United States mail and express car on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad near Texas, Colo., last September, and who were convicted of the deed last month have been sentenced to the United States prison at Detroit, Mich., for life. They took their sentence coolly. Their motion for a new trial was denied. Taught that Tolatol la Antl-Chriat. St. Pf.tkrsbi ro, Feb. 2.—The peas ants of Russia have been taught to be lieve that Tolstoi is anti-Christ, that to accept his bounty means the loss of their bouIs, and that all thus accepting will be stamped with the mark of the beast on their left hand. This amusing super stition is attributed to the prejudice of the Greek Russian clergy. 1. Will Play la Chlc*B^o New York, Feb. 2. -Jacob Bchaeffer, the bilkardist, has telegraphed Frank Ives that he has selected March 10 as the time, and Music hall, Chicago, as the place for the game, which is to be for the championship. It is thought that Schaeffer will take a European trip after his contest with Ives. He hassaitl that he would play Roberts, the English champion, while abroad. Ex-Cougreaaman I-add Dead. BaKOor, Me., Feb. 2.—Hon. Gteorge W. Ladd, died Sunday evening, aged 7'S. In 1878 he was elected to the Forty-sixth congress from the Fourth district, on the Greenback-Democratic ticket, and was re-elected" in 1880. In 188'J he wa defeated by Congressman Boutelle. Accidentally Shot Hlnaeelf. Staples, Minn., Feb. 2. Eugene Payons, of Dower Lake, near this place, accidentally shot himself in the side with his rifle. The ball is too deeply imbedded to be extracted, but fatal re •alta are not apprehended. Supponed to Have I'erlahed. Port Townsend, Wash., Feb. A steamer from Alaska, which arrived Friday night reports that ten misers are supposed to have perished of hunger or cold. Last April, Messrs. Orton and S. O. Wheeler, of Juneau, accompanied by eight other miners left Juneau for Lituvabay taking eight months' pro visions. The party was to return in November. Nothing having bean heard from them, great uneasiness is felt for they were in the frozen regions, where ft would be impossible to get food or help. The winter at Liluya bay is long and severe and probably the ten miss ing men have perished. Fire on the City of New York. Livkrpool, Feb. 2.—A tire occurred on the Inman line steamer City of New York, lying at her dock at Birkenhead. It broke out in the library, at the end of the grand sulon, but was soon ex tinguished, having only burned some of the panneling. The books were badly damaged by water. Tried to Fire Koenlffaberg Castle. Berlin, Feb. J.—An attempt was made on Sunday to fire the royal castle at Koenigsburg. The incendiary got access to the main tower, poured petro leum over one of the floors and then set fire to it. Smoke and flames burst from the tower and for a time there was a lively scare, the whole town turning out to witness the conflagration. The fire, however, was gotten under control before it had done much damage. The incendiary made good his escape, and no clue has been found to him up to the present. Baptlatac a Cblveae Baky. There is a pretty baby in Chinatown who enjoys the proud distinction of hav ing been baptized in a purple velvet brocaded dress imported from Paris. Her name is Sney Mey Lau. The bap tismal name. Suey Mey, means crystal She is the daughter of Tom Yin Kim Lau. a well known dealer in Chinese and Japanese curios. The little or.e is ten months old Her, handsome costume although of expensive European ma terial, was made up in the Chinese con ventional style for babies, that is. with loose blouse and wide trousers. Little Suey Mey was baptized on Sun day in the Chinese Methodist mission by the Rev. F. J. Masters, pastor of the church of which Suey Mev's parents are members. She has one sister, eight years old, who was baptized some time ago. The number of Chinese babies who have been christened in a style similar to white babies is surprisingly large. Chinese mothers who have adopted the Christian faith carry their babies to church as early as possible, aid Chinese parents often take their children with them to the communion table just as soon as the little ones are old enough to he taught. They are beautifully dressed, often in rich silks, and the infant class in the Chinese Sunday school looks liter ally like a convention of oriental dolls in all the colors of the rainbow.—8aa Francisco Chronicle. Narrow and IJrond (iMugen. How many people remember the fa mous "'battle of the gauges?" The vic tory of what was once known as the "narrow gauge." but is now the stand ard or national gauge, since narrower ones are not unknown, is soabsolute that this is the last year of the existence of Brunei's -measurement for the Great Western Railway company's permanent way. For many years on that line the broad gauge has been disappearing, and. as announced in our report of the com pany's half yearly meeting, the change is to be complete by the 20th of May next. The disapjearing gauge, origi nally adopted oil the Great Western railway on Brunei's plans, is 7 feet The common gauge, now roughly called the 4-foot way, is really 4 ft. 8£ in That is the difference between the rails the fractional measurement being, we believe, explained by the fact that origi nally the width of the rails together made np an additional 3J inches, and gave a wheel track of exflitly 5 feet to suit the earlier locomotives and trains. The heads of rails are now much broader, varying on the different lines from 24 2| inches, or together from 5 to iauhes.—London News. A Mao of Kerve. A pretty exhibition was giv n by tha students o? Springfield Medical college, under the auspices of the Young Men'J Christian association. It was the resus citation of a man who had been smoth ered by smoke. In a large hall had been erected a wrooden structure, which was filled with Roman candles, firecrackers and other combustibles. In the midst of all these the unfortunate had bee* place4 f°r suffocation, and the building tired. Shortly afterward the victim of thf experiment was taken from the house of smoke in a thoroughly unconscious con* dition. He was put through a procesf of pumping and rubbing, and in tli# course of thirty minutes was again walk* ing around the hall. This Mr. Taylor thinks the quickest process he has ever seen for bringing to life a person who has been smothered or one who was suf focated from smoke.—Richmond Dis» P»tc. A New Uae^Tor Telephoaea. The telephone is about to have a ne\? application, namely, that of foretelling storms. A new discovery has been made as to one of the properties of this meana of transmitting sound. By placing two iron bars at seven or eight meters dis tance from each other, and then putting them in communication on one side by a copper wiro covered with rubber, and on the other side with a telephone, a storm can, it is paid, be predicted at least twelve hours ahead through a dead sound heard in the receiver. According as the storm advances the sound resembles the beating of hailstones against the windows. Every flash of lightning, and, of course, every clap of thunder that accompanies the storm pro duces a shock similar to that of a stone cast between the diaphragm and IV v the in strument.—CintiftttAU Commercial CMlia HA HOW A K F.
