Down a Precipice.
Leadtille, Colo. Dec. 27.--The tie
tails of the wreck which occurred on the
Midland road yesterday evening, did not
reach here until this morning. The
freight train for Aspen left here on the
usual time, and when thirty miles from
here, near Lime Creek, and going down
a stoop grade, the engineer attempted to
apply the air brakes, but they would not
work, the train meantime coins faster
aiM faster. The engineer then climbed
up on the boiler in order to be able to
escape whenthe crash came. The brake
man, L. F. Harlan, who was standing on
the second car, attempted to apply the
brake, while the fireman, Robert Martin,
who was stanUlU" at his place, saw no
chance to jump, as the train was running
about sixty miles an hour. In the second
car from the rear train another brakeman
sat awaiting his terrible fate. Faster and
faster the ill-fated train swept down the
track and suddenly rounded a short
curvb and then plunged into the side of
the mountain. The force of the shock
was I ear tu 1. 1 he rear Ireight car was
thrown bodily over the others, and landed
in a heap near the engine. The engine
was broken into small pieces and prac
tically annihilated. I he shock was so
terrible that great pieces of timber
weighing i00 pounds, together with sev
eral cars were hurled down the precipice
into the river COO feet below. Engineer
Crou"hfin"er, who was riding on the
boiler, was thrown a great distance, and
escaped with only a few bruises. Brake
man L. F. Harlan, who remained at his
post attempting to check the train, was
buried uader the debris, and when 1 is
body was found it presented a terrible
appearance. His head was crushed, his
right arm was gone and his face was cut
into slices. Martin, the fireman, was
found near the boiler. The unfortunate
man had been badly scalded, several
fingers were gone, both legs were broken
lelow the knees, and every bone in his
body fractured. The other men on the
train were badly bruised, but not serious
ly hurt.
A Bank Failure at Clarks.
Central Citv, Neb., Dec. 27. The
banking house of W. R. Morse, at Clarks,
failed to open on Saturday morning, and
the failure of the institution is now ann
ounced. The liabilities are placed at
$80,000 with no visible assets, everthing
having disappeared. The Merrick couty
treasure had $4,200 on deposit, the Clarks
school district, $4,000; Oskamp &Haines,
ot Omaha $2,000; State Treasurer Wilard,
$1,900. As the facts develope the excit-
ment and indignation Increases, npd the
end cannot be predicted. Morse is under
the care of a physician who will allow no
one to sae him.
Bank Failure at Loup City.
Locp Citv, Neb., Dec 27. The Sher
man County Banking company of this
city made an assignment yesterday morn
in 2. The immediate cause was the
demand of the county treasurer on them
for the county money deposited there,
amounting to about $14,000, which they
were unable to raise, and President
Vhal?y turned the bank oyer to the
sheriff, without consulting with the
board of director?.
- Wonderful Ufasbns.
The old Egyptians were better builders
than thoso of" the present day. There are
blocks of stones in the pyramids which
weigh three or four times as much as the
rlelisk on the London embankment.
There is one 6tone, the weight of which
id estimated at SS0 tons. There are stone
thirty feet in length which fit so closely
together that a penknife may be run
over the surface without discovering the
break between them. They are not laid
with mortar, either. We nave no ma
chinery so perfect that it will make two
surfaces thirty feet in length which will
meet together as these stones in the pyra--raids
meet. It is supposed tliat they were
rubbed backward and forward upon
each other until the surfaces were assimi
lated, matin;' them the world's wondera
in mechanical skill. London Budget.
la the West Virginia Mountain,
"There is much ignorance in many of
these mountain counties," said a Baptist
orator at Clarksburg, W. Ya. "A man
was riding through McDowell county on
his way to the court house. He met an
old lady and asked her the way to the
county seat. She replied: I did not
know that the county had any seat,' "
Then he added: "That reminds me
of an officer traveling through the
country during the war. He asked an
old man what was the population of his
county. He replied: I don't know; it is
over on Tug Fork. "Richmond Relig

How Embalming Is Done.
The process of embalming is as follows,
and is called the "Brunelli process": The
circulatory system is cleansed by wash
ing witb cola water till it issues quite
clear from the body. This may occupy
irom iwo to live nours. Aicoiiol is in
jected so as to abstract as much wr.ter
as possible. This occupies about a Quar
ter of an hour. Ether is then injected to
abstract tho fatty matter. This occupies
irom two to ten nours. A strong solu
tion of tannin is then injected. This oc
cupies for imbibition from two to ten
hours. The body is then dried in a cur
rent of warm air . passed over heated
chloride of calcium. This may occupy
iwu io nve nours. i ne rxxly is tnen per.
iecxiy preserved, ana resists decay. The
Italians exhibit specimens which are as
hard as stone, retain the shape perfectly
and are equal to the best wax models. It
win be observed in this process that
those substances most prone to decay are
removea, ana me remaining portions
are converrea Dy tne tannin into a sub
stance resembling leather. The Casket.
The Wrong Boy.
A Sunday school teacher in a Lack
woods settlement had a new class of
young scholars, the parents of which had
neglected to give them any instructions
whatever in their catechism. Coming to
the first boy in the class she asked him
who made him. He did not know. She
told him God, and urged him to remem
ber it. Of the next boy she asked who
was tne oldest man. Ho did not know,
and the teacher told him Methuselah. So
she went on down the class, asking each
a question ana giving them the answer.
While cho was thus engaged the first boy
went to tue oucKei airer some water.
The teacher returned to the head of the
class, and not knowing that ono was ab
sent, sne asked tne hrst who made him.
Without hesitation the boy quickly re
plied, "Methuselah!" "No," exclaimed
the teacher in astonishment, "God made
you!" No, he didn't," persisted the ur-
enin wiui commence; "the boy God
made is after water." The teacher gave
up the class. Chicago Journal

Effects of Using the Telephone. '
At the meeting of the American Oto
logics 1 society in Washington, Dr. Clar
ence J. Blase, or ttoston, read a paper
on Ihe influence of the use of tho tel6r
phone on hearing power. He thinks
that this influence must be injurious, be

demonstrated by experiment, of the
sounds to be cautrht from the telephone.
compelled a strain of the ear which soon
fatigued it, and made it especially liable
to tainrv bv the accidental sounds of
comparatively high intensity, which
wer constantly liable to be heard. lr.

Mgulfjcaut Wink.
A great part of what is called a mitfTs
success in life- depends uxu his (hiding
out in KtK season what his natural bent
is, and then following it. James
Naumyth was particularly fortunate in
this respect. Although Kia father was
an artist, and he himself had no little
aptitude for drawing and painting, yet
ho was Kiiro that he was "cut out" fur a
a machinist, and a machinist lie became.
Having learned hid trade, ho vent to
Manchester to start in bubiness lor him
self, and there, among other good oeople,
he met tho Brothers Grant, tho famous
Cheeryble Brothers of Dickens.
lie was first introduced to Daniel, who
invited him to his house, and presented
him to his "noblo brother William," as
Daniel always called him. At the
dinner table young Nasmyth sat next to
William, and was asked many questions.
"How old are you?"
"Rather younp' to betrin business on
your own account."
"Yes, but I have plenty of work in
me, ana know how to oo economical.
"What capital have you?" Nasmyth
contessea that i had only 03.
Tho old gentleman thought thata very

friend sundry cautions hp added that he

"If some Saturday nfcrht vou should
need money to pay olf your hands or for
anything elso you will always find a
credit of 500 at 3 per cent, at my office,
ana no security.
Isasmyth was, of course, as much
pleased as surprised, and, as ho says,
could only whisper his thanks in return.
10 meso .air. urant responded with a
squeeze of the hand and a peculiarly
Knowing wink.
This wink mado a most vivid impres
sion upon tho younger man. It seemed
full or all manner of kindness. As he
describes it, "Mr. Grant seemed to turn
his eye round, and brought his eyebrows
,i . i i i ,
iiowu uiwu it in a suuuen ana extraor
dinary manner."
Tho "noblo brother" proved every whit
as kind as young Nasmyth could have
expectea or asked lor; but it transpired,
a year or two afterward, that the wink
had no immediate connection with his
generosity. In fact, the eye that gave it
was made of glass! It now and then got
out of place, and its wearer had to force
it back by that odd contortion of his eye-
Drows, wtucn, taken in connection with
the conversation then passing, Nasmyth
had understood to be expressive of all
manner of kind intentions. Youth's
Turkish Bazars.
Tho bazars of ConstantinODle. or tha
Tcharshu, as they are called by the na
tives, are situated on one of the famous
hills of that oriental metropolis, facing
tho Bosphorus. They are unlike anv
other places of traffic, being altogether
sui generis both in construction and de
sign. To give the reader an idea of their
singular naturo tney may be compared
to the public markets of this country,
tnougn tney culler in extent and internal
arrangement. Imagine an entire city
ward with its numerous blocks embraced
in one euiuce or inclosure. with its
streets, lanes and alleys arched over and
devoted to commerce. These bazars
are built of stone and ere one story high.
iacu street is anottea to some particular
branch or class of merchandise; thus,
there is spice bazar, called Missir-tchar-
shu, where all kinds of drugs; spioes
uid dye stuffs are sold, including the
famous henna, and the exhilarating
hashish is procured.
J. here are tho perfumery bazars, where
the niost fragrant perfumes, the ottar of
roses, llhurtz tenroots and other odor
iferous pastues and essences fill the at
mosphere with their delicious fragrance:
the 6:1k bazar, the dry goods bazar, of
wnicn tnere are two, the Kalpa Kdiebar-
baslii and the Uzoon-tcharghu, or the
Broadway and the Bowery of Constanti
nople. Besides these ;s the Yaghlukdji
lar, where the most varied and exauisite
embroideries are displayed. The Kaf-
fallar, or 6hoe bazar, is an institution
peculiarly oriental. There one sees the
meeting of the west and the east in the
motley collection of wares, the clumsv
Oriental chaussers, with the patent
leatner doois; tne teneaiK-f aDDootcha or
the walking shoes of the Turkish ladies
of the Ancien regime, alongside of the
tiny gaiters of . varied colors, for the
modernized hannums (ladies). The jew

the tcharshu, ror it is much frequented

The Core for Heart Neuralgia.
Aneina pectoris Cacronv of the chestt
carries on many people, one of whom,

according to the newspapers, was the
novelist, the Rev. E. P. Roe, who ex
pired in one day because pf its crushing
anguish. Slaj. Gen. George B. McClel
lan, according to the published reports
of that time, likewise succumbed after
twenty-four hours of uncontrollable pain.
Just how these patients were treated I
am unable to say; but Dr. Richardson.
of London, long before Gen. SIcClellan's
death, had received a prize of 25,000
francs from the Academy of Medicine in
Paris for having discovered an almost
infallible remedy for angina pectoris by
the administration, in the small dosea of
1-100 to l-jj.-j of a grain, of mtro-srlvcer-

son to tho never ending gratitude of
every suffering man, woman or child
afflicted with angina pectoris.
