An Appalling Disaster.
St. George, Out., Feb. 27.- Tlie St.
Louis express passing here eastbound,
about C o'clock this evening, went
through the bridge just east of the sta
tion. A. broken tire on the engine wheel
caused the rails to spreak, and the first
passenger car, Pullman car and diniog
car went through the middle section of
the bridtre. The Pullman car which con
tained most of the passengers, was thrown
clean off the bridge, turning completely
over and landing right up.
The dining car stands on end against a
pier. The passenger car remains on the
bridge, having stripped the ties ahead of
it. Eight or ten persons who were killed
and about thirty wounded were taken
out of the cars.
. The dining-rooin car contained about
even persons besides the waiters. Sup
per had just commenced, and fn a few
minutes the car would have been filled,
and must haye perished.
The following is a list of killed:

vVemp, of London; Dr. Swan and A. W.
Francis, of Woodstock; Mr. McLean, of
the firm of McLean & Beecher, of Detroit;

Trits Same March.
Washington, Feb. 28. Memories of
William Heury Harrison will be plentiful
at the inauguration of his grandson. The
inaugural committee has received a letter
from a lady at Sykesville, M L, request
ing that the iuaugural gran 1 inarch,
composed by Miss. Susanna W!irfield and
played by the Marine band during the
inauguration ceremony of William Henry
Harrison in 1841 be ag iin played during
the ceremonies next week. Miss Waifiel.l
is n w a lady ninety-rive years old ami
would be Irighly gratified to know that
the music c m posed by lu-r in li-.mor tti
the first Harrison w is heard also in t!i
inaugural ceremonies of his grandson.
A copy of- Mjss WF(ie!d's. inr.reh was
sent recently to Mrs. Harrison at Indian
apolis and it is understood she wrote to
the committee here requesting that it be
played Monday next.
Plenty of lumber has been used in pre
paring for the inauguration, but the only
thing that has yet taken shape is a log
cabin. It was put up today in front of
the Peace monument at the head of
Pennsylvania avenue. Although Riore
fragile than one in the days of "Tippeca
noe and Tyler too," it looks habitable.
It is about 10x12 feet, and stands just at
the base of the triumphal goddess, about
whom a graceful flag already waves.
This old cabin will be the first thing that
greets the eyes of the troops they
march dqwu the avenue with Gen. liar
rison at ther head, and WAY wl'l be
the cheers that will ring out for William.

Tpwada, Ta., Feb. 23,- The Union
Bridge compauy took a contract a year
or so ago for building the great Hawkcs
bury bridge at Sidney, New South Wales.
The company sub -let the work to Rylant
& Morse, of this city, Th.o, Ryiand of
the llrm w.-u the well known bridge
builder, S. V. Rylanil. The partners
went to Sydney and completed the work,
receiving for it $1,000,000. ItylamVs
family have received a letter from Morse,
which says that on the day before Christ
mas Rylaud was walking on one of the
string piers of the bridge, when he lost
his balance and fell into the water, a
distance of fifty feet. The fall did not
seem to hurt him, as he was seen to turn
and swim for the shore. On the way he
was attacked by an immense shark, which
carried him beneath the surface, and he
was seen no more. Rylaud leavees a
widow tfud five children in Towauda.
He was forty-eight years of age and one

Dkaii Editok: Not seeing anything
in your valuable paper for quite a while
in recognition toward Cullom, I thought
to drop you a few items from our little
berg and let your many readers know
whereof we speak.
Cullom is situated in a beautiful valley
on the B. & M., nine miles west of the
county seat of Cass couuty, and is sur
rounded with one among the best farm
ing communities that can be found in
On inquiry we get the information that
sixty-five car loads of grain have been
shipped from this point since the
beginning of the new year.
There are twe scales here for weighing
grain put in by the fanners and an ele
vator for handling grain is talked of as
a necessity and would undoubtedly pay
any one for their investment.
The ladies of Cullom gave a basket
supper the 10th inst. for the benefit of
the church which was a grand succes.
The schoal house where the supper . was
held was decorated in the most elaborate
style, which does great credit to the
Cullomites. As near as we can learn there
were thirty-one dollars made above all
expenses. Quite a delegation of ladies
and gentlemen from Cedar Creek and
Louisville attended the supper.
The Cullom school is taught by Mr. J.
B. Meisinger, which is in a flourishing

It is reported that articles sold well at

The basket supper at Cottonwood
school given for Mr. Surface's benefit on
Tuesday night was well patronized and
goodly number of the young gents each
captured a basket and the fair owner
thus realized a neat little sum of money.

OLD AND CURIOUS COINS.
PIcCGS OF SCARCE KINDS OF MONE
AND THEIR FANCY PRICES.
The Ooddesa ut Liberty lu Different Posi
tion Coins from Anicrlcau Mints That
Are More Prized Thau Those That Were
Current In tli Days of the Cietotrs.
A craze which of late years has greatly
developed and at this time shows no
sin of falling off. i3 that of collecting
raro coin3. Chicago leads all western
cities in the number of its numismatists
and lioaf.ts some fino collections. It
might bv 6iipiH)sed that the demand
would Ik? principally for coins of grea!
antiquity, but this is not tho case. Th
chief inquiry is for sets of American
coins, and some numbers nro so rare as
to readily command fancy prices. In
certain years some descriptions of coins
wcro not minted at all, while in other
cases few copies vrir ter.'vd. Oilier
coins are valued I.x-cuum? of toiue error
or eccentricity in the die; in fact, any
variation from the ordinary types, if in
good condition, will bring more than its
ODD SIZES AND DATES.
Of tho 6ilrer dollars, nearly all tho
earlier issues are in demand at a slight
premium, and that of 1794, in which tho
goddess of lilierty is depicted with flow
ing hair, is worth 20. As for tho dollar
of 1804, of which few are known, any
copy in good condition will bring 200.
The flying eaglo of 1S39 and 1839, and
the coins of 1831, 1852 and 1858, with the
lilerty loving lady seated, are worth at
least $15 each. The on timo despised
trade dollars, issued 1879 to 18S3 in
clusive, aro at a premium of 10 cents
each. Of half dollars, those of 1790 and
1797, with fifteen or sixteen Btars, bring
$13 each. Others of value aro dated
1791, 1801 and 1S02, and there are many
more, such as 1833 with a liberty cap,
183$ with an "O" mark under the head,
and a coin of 1S33 with liberty seated,
which are worth from $2 to 3 each.
The scarce quarters are those of 1823
and 1827, with the head to the left, each
valued at 15, while tho 17M3 fillet head
is to be had for and that of 1804 for
1. Twenty cent silver pieces of 1S7G
bring SO cents; those of tho eucceeding
year are cheap at r.50. The dimes of
the grandfathers are mostly worth from
five to twenty times their face value,
while half dimes in silver bring from 50
cents to 3 each, and a ppecial brand of
the vintage of 1802 will command $25.
Silver three cent pieces run from 20 to
50. cents: nickel fives 15 to 30 cent3 each,
and nickel threes 15 to 23.
COPPER LEADS GOLD.
There is a great demand for old copper
cents, tho first ambition of every col
lector being to btart even with the pro
cession in 1793 or bo and bring it down
to dato with a coin for each year. It
will cost him from 1 to 3 for the vari
ous kinds issued in 1793, S3 foi 1799, and
$2.50 for 1S04. With the exception of a
cent of 1309 with the head to tho left the
rest are reasonable in price. Half cents
are in demand, and readily command
from 81 to $5 for those of certain yearo
between J331 and 18-19. But in these it
must liot ie understood that those of all
years are equally in request. Those is
sued 1840-43 inclusive, with the head to

A Shrewd Dos.
Of a sedate but cunning dog out in
California this 6tory is told: On one
occasion a rabbit wai started, and all
the dogs with the exception of Bonus
dashed off in full pursuit. We were
astonished to observe that he, foregoing
tho intense excitement of tho chase, de
liberately trotted by a s?iort cut to a
hollow oak trunk, and crouching at its
base calmly awaited the coming of the
fleeing rabbit. And he was not disap
pointed, for the pursuing dogs pressed
the rabbit so hard that after making a
long detour, it approached the place of
refuge. As it was about entering the
hollow trunk. Bonus sprang up and cap
tured it. Now, tliis old dog was used to
hunting rabbits in that 6-dd, and knew
that the rodents were in tho habit of
flying for saf ety ; to tliat hollow tree.
Moreover, tbi3 story is true. Philadel-
