Ni amaa Falls, Ont, Jan. 0. A large
mass of rock fell from the precipice of
the horse shoe or Canadian falls Friday,
and Tuesday night and yesterday smaller
pieces broke away. The noise made hy
the falling rock alarned. t'6 residents, in
the icinUy on, (he Canadian side. The
massive stone building known as the
Table Rock lior.ae, wa jarred to such a
degree that the doors were thrown open
and the- occupants, who had retired,
jumped out of bed greatly excited by the
ncise and the vibration of the buUdiag,
thinking it was. a shock of earthquake.
The effect of these displacements on the
contour of the falls is 4ulte marked, the
change being to form an angle to the
original horse shoe.
It was a Very Bad Mixture,
Nebraska City, Neb., Jan. u. A man
and woman, clothes line, dog, poker and
V-evolver became mixed up in a neighbor
hood quarrel, which terminated seriously
for the two principal. Samuel Merry
man and Mrs, Charles Goodman are
ueighbors in the southern part of the city,
am i have not been upon the best of terms
for some time. Monday night Merrymaa
came home, and in the darkness ran
ag iinst a clothes line belonging to Mrs.
Goodman, stretched across Merryman's
yan5. He requested her to take the line
down, and she told him to do it himself.
Thii he proceeded to do with a knife,
when the woman set her dog ou him,
and Merryman retired to the house.where
he secured a revolver, and coming out,
commenced shooting at the dog. Mrs.
Goodman then armed herself with a
poker, which she tnrew lit Merryman with
terrible force, the point striking him in
the fleshy part of the leff.making a wound
seyeral inches in depth. The woman then
went into the house, and after Merryman
had pulled the poker from his leg he
dared her to come out. 'She replied by
S'tying: " No d n man could dare her,"
and came out in the yard, Merrymsn says,
armed with something he could not tell
what. Merryman then fired three shots
at her, all of which took effect, one in
the fleshy part of the left arm and two
in her right arm. After the shooting
Merryman gave himself up to the sheriff
4nd was placed in jail. The woman docs
not seem to mind her wounds much.
Merryman's wound from the poker is
thought to !e the mot serious. The dog
was the only thing mixed up in the
affair that escaped uninjured.

His Farm Caved In.
Bektiuek En IIaut, Que., Jan. 9.
An extraordinary event occurred Sunday
about three miles from here. A farmer
named Lavignac heard a rumbling noise
not unlike an earthquake, and running
out of the house was astonished to see
the land about fifteen yards from his
house ettle down. The poor man saw
his barns tumble to pieces, cattle getting
crushed, and the earth rolling into the
river not three hundred yards distant.
nai was a nign ohuk along tne river
lias disappeared and in its place is an
enoi mous cavity some live or six acres
in extent and twenty or thirty feet dee).
1'here must have been a vast subterra
nean cavern, for the edge of the crust
which is plainly visible, was not more
than a couple of feet thick. Several
cows and horses were killed, many barns
smashed to pieces and the scene is one pf
sorry ruin. Further caving in is feared
and ihe people in that neighborhood
liv e in a state of great alarm.

"When did you quit yor uncle's hock
shop?" asked the boy's acquaintance.
"Las' week Wo'n sdy. Ilg fired me put
for trying to wprkpne of his own games.
tine1 pf the funniest rackets you ever
heard of. and I'm hist sore enoueii on th
old than to give it dead away. The pld
man vyag going up Center street one day
last summer, and he stopped in a secpnd
hand tool shop tp see a friend. While h
was there he got monkeying with a second
hand signal lox. It was a little cast
iron thing with the word "pplice" on the
front and a bras? button on the tpp.
di clpckwork going in the box, and made
as much'noiso as an alarm clock. H
was stuck on the thhg tnI W4iM'i 'i
I'J wit l - - " tie was n-om.1
- uJiu he said he would stick
it .up on the wall and ring it if any
toughs tried to make trouble in the shpp.
v ell, that's just what he did with it.
He screwed it un in plain sicht behind
the cpunter and fastened wires to it tp
make it lppk as if they went spinewhere.
Then he tppk spme brpnze paint and
touched up the letters so that npbody
cpuld make any mistake in reading them.
I dpn't believe ho thought of what a
great graft the bpx was until he had it
up about a week. Then ho made it use
ful for the first time. A ypung fellpw
came in with a dress coat wrapped up in
a newspaper and wanted five cases on it.
Uncle Jonas held the coat up and sized
it up with the fellow that was trying to
eoak it. The coat was big enough for
two like him and tho old man says:
'Dot's a nice CPat. Ees id ypur own?'
" 'Pctcher life,' says the ypung feller.
Vait till I call my bruder,' says the
old man, and he turned and jammed the
button dpwn liard pn the signal bpx.
The j-pung feller just gave pne glance at
the box, and he shot out pf the door and
left the coat behind. He ain't been seen
around there since. After that the old
man give mo to understand I was to
come along kinder slow any time when
ho rung the box, so that if people didn't
scare, they wpuld take it that the call
was for me, and then lie would consult
me about the goods that were pffered.
He worked tho call pn a man with a
gold watch next day, and the man
snatched the watch out pf his hand and
skipped. After that he was tnpre care
ful, and when a crcok came in with a
ring a day or twp later, he laid the ring
dpwn put pf reach and tpuched the but
tpn, 6aying that he wpuld call his 6on
and get his opinion about the stone.
The cropk looked at the call bpx and ran
his eye alpng the wires which ran toward
the front pf the shop. Then he began to
swear, and made a jump for the side
dopr. Next day a nice lopking fellpw
came in and described the ring, and said
that it was stolen from him, and that he
had cpmered the man who stole it, and
learned where it was.
" 'All right; I vill send fpr it,' says the
pld man, and then he tpuched the buttpn
" I will come in again in a half an
hpur,' says the nice looking ypung feller,
and skips out the dopr. Did he come
back? Is aw. Well, the pld man wprked
the new snap every chance he gpt. but
sometimes he gpt fooled, and then I had
to come to the front and be cpnsulted,
always askin': 'Did ypu ring, sir?' One
day when the old man was put to dinner
a feller come in with a stud. It was a
real bug and I wanted to win it. So I
sprung tho call box on liim. He shpt put
pf the side dopr and I dropped the ring
in my pocket. Two minutes later me
uncle put his hand on my shoulder, and
two big tears ran down Ids nose as he
told me that lie was 6prry that he had
fpund out that I was not honest. He
gave me a calking old lecture on honesty
being the best policy, and told mo tha't
he had been watcliing me from the back
part pf the 6hop and seen me git the
'chenuine tiamont. I had to give it up
to him, and he i3 wearing it now whilo I
am on my uppers. Oh, yes, he fired me
yust as soon as he found I vasn't hon

see if he don't ring the box on ypu and
try to biuff you put of ypur watch. Then
ask him about me." cw York Sun.
A WINTER APPLE.
It lay before me ou my study table
So smooth, so juicy and no rosy red.
That in a pensive mood, soliloquizing.
While musing on life's cbangcH thus I said:

but pregnant with impending conse

A Famous Hymn.
When Bishop Heber's famous mis
sionary hymn, "From Greenland's
Icy Mountains," which be wrote in
1S24, when in Ceylon, first reached
this country, a lady in Charleston was
much impressed with the beauty of it,
and was particularlv anxious to find a
tune suited to it. She ransacked her
music in vain, and then chancing to
remember that in a bank down the
street was a young clerk who bad con
siderable reputation us a musical
genius, sho sent her son with the
hymn to the clerk with the request
that ho write a tunc to fit it. In just
half an hour the boy came back with
the bymu. and the melody thus dashed
off iu hot baste is today sung ull over
the world and is inseparably connected
with the hymn. The young haul; clerk
was Lowell Mason. Brooklvn Eagle.
A Curious Incident.
A curious story is related by Herbert
Pratt, of Hoi brook. Mass., who has
been spending a few days gunning at
Brant Rocks. Ho cays a number of
gunnci-s were stationed oil the rocks in
boats shooting coot. A flock flew over
and a gu liner i:i one of the boats dis
charged both barrels at the flock, ap
parently without effect. George Cush
mg. residing at that place, who was
one of the party but in another boat,
raised bis gun to (ire at two coot flying
somewhat lower and from another
direction, when a wounded bird from
the first Hock fell, striking the cud of
the barrel of bis g-un and knocking it
from bis grasp into the water while it
was being discharged". A subscription
was taken up among the gunners pres
ent to buy Mr. Cushing a new gun.
A Domesticated Quail.
Herbert Smith, of Bridgeport, Conn.,
has a quail that flew in through his
window about a year ago, and which
he has tamed so successfully that it
eats from his hand and seems entirely
domesticated. It is left at liberty in
the house, where it is very apt to sit
in the lap of some one of the family,
and, when taken out of doors, never
tries to escape. Cases of such com
plete domestication of a full 'grown
quail are believed to be very rare.
