that Orchard originated the Idea of

ous ncld thrown into his house by an
unknown hand, but denied that the

that ho Intended- to kill Steunenberg.
Mehlllct and Alkmnn, who followed
Mallcb, also made positlvo and cir
cumstantial denlnls of all the things
Orchard swore they did with him.
Attorney E. F. Richardson conducted
The cross-examination of all threo

version of the nlleged uso of "Petti

Another unusunl feature was con

background of plots nnd counter-plots,
criminal, industrial and political, by
the appearance as a wltiiess for tho
defense ol E. L. McParland, a brother
of Detective James McParland, who
worked up the case against Haywood,
Mojer and Pettibone and obtained Or
rahrd's conleasion. This McPirland

Fifty-Two Workmen Have Miraculous
Escape from Death.
Cincinnati, July 3. Fifty-two men
had a remarkable escnpe from death
In tne collapsing of a four-story busi
ness block on Mntu street, only ten
being Injured nnd none of those dan
gerously. The accident was caused
by the weakening of foundations by
the excavation being made at tho '
corner of Ninth and Main streets for
the new ten-story building of the Sec
ond National bank. The building that
fell was occupied by the office furni
ture firm of Levy & White. Its outer
wall fell Into tho excavation, where
the laborers were enjoying their mid
day meal. Forty laborers were em
ployed on the Job and most of them
were seated around the excnvatlon
when the wall fell. In the wrecked
building were a dozen other men,
some pf whom were shot out through
the windows nnd wreckage Into the
streets. That numbers were not killed
outright seemtd little less than ml
raculous. However, the timbers In
falling formed arches, under which the
men were safely housed.

A correspondent of the Cohvyn Bay
' Herald describes n fierce fight between
a fox and n number of swans. Tho
fox. nfter hiding for awhile among
some reeds, boldly swam toward a
number of swans. The latter were on
the alert, however, nnd when within a
yard tho biggest bird attacked him
with wing und bonk, entirely submerg
ing him for two or three seconds.
Nothing daunted, the fox irtnde a final
nttaek, but Ignominious defeat awaited
him, ns nil the swans nrrayed them
selves In single file nnd made a de.sper
nto attack on their nssullajit, which
eventually landed nt the south side of
the lake, his blood covering the felt of
heather at tho far end. The swans np
