about 10 o'clock Saturday night when
ho concluded to spend the night ncross
the cnnal and not go home. When ho

footing In the dark and fell. As ho
shot through the trestle his head struck
one of the ties, and ho landed on tho
gioiiml unconscious. How long he lay
theio ho docs not know. When he
awoke It was with the consciousness
of great pain In his leg. He tried to
yell, but his voice was weak and he
was unable to speak above u whisper.
The pain In bis leg made cold perspira

one would pass ahing and lend him
The place was ns quiet ns a grave,
nnd he could not hear even the rap of
a policeman. He started to work his
way from under the trestlework, but
every nttempt to move forward nindo

turned on his back and began to crawl
along with bis head and hands, drag

was very slow and very painful. Once
he remembers to have lost conscious
ness, the pain was so great. Ho does
not know how long he lay where he was,
but the thought that ho might die tbero
before any assistance could reach him
nerved him to press on. He began ngaln j
to crawl on his back. He felt that he
was about to faint again, so he stopped.
He struggled with himself to keep from
losing consciousness, fearing that he
mlirht never awaken. When he felt
that ho had gained enough strength to
venture on he began his laborious and
painful task again. After be bad tUrug
glod along between rests and partial
unconsciousness for what seemed to
him a .week he began to break down.
He rested from his labors awhile,
thinking some one would surely pass
along, but no one appeared. He spied
some salt sheds near by and made his
way toward them. When he reached
the sheds the night watchman was
ninklng his last round. Just ns tho
watchman discovered Starr the latter

A conespondeiit, writing to the Lon
don Globe, from Zurich, on Nov. LJ,
aays: "At daybieak on Wednesday a
frightful disaster took place at a dis
tance of four miles from Kanderstag,
on the Gemini pass. A huge, mass ot
Ice, niensuiiug l.'.'oO.OOO cubic meters, pi
detnehed from tho Altels glacier and
was precipitated Into the valley. Such
was the Impetus) of the might avalanche
that It was not checked In the valley,
but dashed up the opposite side, which
has a slope of 13 degrees, to a height
of 13,000 feet, carrying everything be
fore It until It met a wall of rock which
bent the main mass surging back.
"At the foot of tills rock lies, or rather
lay, the Spltalmatte, an exceedingly
beautiful and rich mountain pasture,
with chalets for the cowherds, for stor
ing cheeses, etc. At the time of the dis
aster there were collected there 150
head of valuable cattle, under the care
of four cowherds. There were also two
olllclals from Leuk, who had come up to
arrange about bringing down the cat
tle, which event has always taken place
on Nov. 13. All have been over
whelmed. Of the animals, only three
have escaped. The loss In the live
stock, the ownership of which was par
titioned among about thirty families,
mostly quite poor, belonging to the vil
lage of Leuk, Is estimated at 100,000
francs. The pasture Itself, which for
years will now be useless, strewn as It
Is with debris, la valued at 400,000
francs. Tho bodies of the two olllclals
and of two of tho cowherds have been
recovered, but In a horribly mutilated
condition. It seenia that tho disaster
overtook them while sleeping In thelt'-

of two square miles to u depth of many

about In such positions that they must
