Ancient Bible Discovered in Build
ing at Columbus, Ohio.
Records Birth of Nine Children of
Its Owner, Mary, Wife of Chris
tobal Moyer Is Dated Phila
delphia, 1790.
Columbus, Ohio. An Interesting
historic record has boon found in tho
ruins of tho old Franklin building,
High and Cherry streots, site of Col
nmbus' first public Inn, hut now In
process of demolition under orders of
tho state flro marshal, who regarded
tho structure a menace to occupants.
Tho relic was found by W. H. Lovor of
27G South Wall street, under tho
crumbling wood of tho first floor. It
was an old blblo, containing tho
Psalms of David "In meter."
It declares Itself to bo "the version
approved by tho church of Sco.tland,"
and was printed by William Young,
bookseller, 52 Second street, the cor
ner of Chestnut street, In Philadel
phia. Underneath this statement Is
tho date "1790," showing tho work to
havo been printed 122 years ago. It
Is yellow with age.
Evidently it was tho property of
Mary Farmer, tho daughter of William
and Jano Farmer, who was' born In
1738, according to tho carefully writ
ten family records It contains. Rec
ords of tho births of nlno children
follow. They were tho offspring of
Chrlstobal and Mary Meyer, early set
tlers and pioneers. These family
data read In part as follows:
"Elizabeth Moyer was born on Mon
day, December tho 25th, In the year of
our Lord 1801.'
"Mary Meyor was born on tho third
day of December In tho year of our
Lord 1803."
The records continue to show tho
birth of Nancy Meyer in 1805. Wil
liam Meyer In 1798, John In 1794, An
drew In 1798, Charles In 1807, Samuel
In 1809 and Deborah in 1812.
On the title page appears tho fol
lowing: "Blblo and Psalms of David In
Metre, translated and diligently com
pared with tho original toxt and form
er translations." In spite of Its ago
tho relic Is easily legible and Is well
preserved. Its historic Interest makes
It a valuablo find. Tho old Franklin
building, which preserved tho relic
beneath Its timbers for more than a
century, was not only tho first hotel
in Columbia, but also tho most portcn
tlous framo building erected In this
part of tho country. Boforo its con
struction practically all Columbus
structures and abodes w.ero mado of
Somo months ngo tho deputies of
tho stato fire marshal inspected tho
building and found It to bo so badly
worn with ago that It constituted a
menace to any occupants. It was
ordered destroyed, but tho orderB were
for a time resisted owing to tho his
toric character of tho building. Ho
cently the state olflclals wero obeyed
and the building wrecked.
Ten Wagons Sucked Into Cha6m,
but Mule Saves Driver From
Shamokln, Pa. John Stenchock and
Wallio Burnski had a thrilling escape
from death as they woro completing
a shift at the Natallo colliery, Thoy
started from tho No. 2 slopo with
threo mules attached to ten wagons.
Btenchock rode tho leading mule,
whllo his companion sat on the third
animal. A cavo-ln from underground
working occurred.
Hearing tho ground break Sten
cliock looked back and saw tho ten
wagons disappear with tho, rear mule
struggling to retain its footing. Sten
chock whipped his mulo Into a gallop
as tho roar mulo was sucked Into
tho chasm. Burnski slid over the
animal's head, and, grabbing- tho
traces of tho second mulo, was pullod
clear of tho cavo-ln.

Mrs. Otto Wagner of this big, silly,
cruel city. Without any effort to at
tact public attention to herself, Mrs.
Wngncr has sot In oporatlon a real
and original charity. Sho calls It the
Antlovictlon coclety. At present tho
society consists simply of Mrs. Wag
ner and somo fow of hor friends
whom Bho has called on tor modost
contributions of cash. Thero Is, iww
evor, such a definite field for genuine
charitable effort In tho movement
which Mrs. Wagner has begun that n
pormanent organization is being
formed with tho purposo of securing
sufficient funds to carry out Mrs.
Wagner's idea In a systematic wny.
Every week a scoro of famlllrs in
tho poor quarters of Now York are
evicted from their homes homes that
aro hardly worthy of tho name, per
haps, but homes nevertheless. Fre
quently it is tho duty of these ofllclnls
to turn sick mothers, helpless chil
dren or aged people, with thoir poor
belonging, out upon tho sidewalk.
Tho landlord wants hs rent. Nothing
olso counts with him. Mrs. Wugnor
has arranged with otllclals of tho sher
iff's office to bo notified In ndvanoo of
ovory Intended o lotion. Sho has or
ganized a cominlttoty among hor
friends to assist In tho work of In

bo taken out of tho ?500,u00 allowed
to Mr. WInnns grandchildren.
it Is understood tho payment of tho
$500,000 to tho grandchildren of tho
millionaire will necessitate all tho
legatocB giving up part of tho monoy
loft thorn, and It will therefore causo
a prorata diminution of tho bequest
of ?500,C00 mado to Miss Dorothy
Batcman of Nowport, a young friend of
Mr WlnanB.
Whether Thomas B. Wlnans, tho son
of tho millionaire, who wns cut oft

still uncertain.
