About two weeks ngo two horses
driven by a middlo aged man, tho
wagon containing a young woman,
stopped at a farm houso three or four
miles out from Stromsburg. Tho man
asked for permission to lcavo tho

woman was taken into tho house, to-bo
followed by her trunk which was in

has not been seen since.
Tho woman became ill shortly after
being taken luto tlio houso and a doctor
was summoned. Ileforo ho arrived she
had givon birth to a child and had died.
Sho was so ill that tho farmer's wlfo
was unablo to question her satisfac
torily. After her death her trunk and
her clothing wcro searched, but thcro
was not tho slightest tiling which
would lead to her identification. Her
body was burled in tho cemetery and

of lightning struck him on tho right
sido of tho head, burning his hair as If
touched with a candle. Tho fluid then
passed down his neck, across his chest
and down his left side, going out at his
left foot and tearing it to pieces. Tho
heol was completely torn away, and
nothing was loft of tho foot except a
strip from tho instep to tho big toe, nil
tho othor toes being torn out, and tho
foot had tho appearance of being run
through n threshing machine. He was
immediately brought to tho city and
his foot amputated. Ho is now on a
fair way to recovery, and nside from
tho loss of tho foot suiFers no effects
from tho bhoek. It is supposed that he
had his left foot on tho ground nt tho

Irish Liberty Proposed.
CmcAco, Sept. 20. When the Irish
delegates assembled for their second
day's work, little time was lost in pre
liminaries and the election of perma
nent officers was put through at a
rapid pace, tho following being unan
imously chosen: J. P. Pinnerty, chair-'
man; J. r. button, secretary; J. P.
Keating, T. L. H. McGrevy and J. C.
Strain, assistant secretaries; J. M.
Kennedy of Montana, C. D. O'Hrlen of
St Paul, C. P. Drlscoll of New Huven,
P. J. .ludgo of Holyo.co and Cornelius
Harding of Pittsburg, vice presidents.
When the report of tho committee
on credentials was submitted, it was
received witli some disfavor by a few
of the delegates because Dr. Paul M.
Shecdy and John Madden from the
Ancient Order of Hibernians and a
convention of tho Irish-American citi
zens of Allegheny, county, Pa., wero
refused seats. An amendment seating
tho two was offered, and trouble was
threatened for a time, but tho com
mlttco was sustained by a liberal ma
jority and tlio matter was dropped,
the claim being that tho credentials
wero not sufficient.
Considerable enthusiasm was created
by a motion to add O'Donovan Itossa
to the list of vico Presidents, but
Then Pinerty, in an address to tho
convention, declared for an Irish
American standing army which should
bo reidy to do battle for Ireland
whenever opportunity might pre ut
itself. Tho chairman's views met
with the approval of the delegates
and were supported by hearty enthus
iasm. He outlined a plun by which
young Irish-Americans throughout the
country should bo organized into mil
itary companies which would as a
wholo constitute a standing army that
might at a proper timo strike for
PENSIoiN LIST GROWING.
Over n Thousand Moro Names Added
Than Havo Horn Dropped.
Wabhixotox, Sept. 'Jo. A year ago
Commissioner of Pensions Lochren
said that the limit had probably been
reached In the number of pensions, or
rather in tho amount of the yearly
appropriation for pensions, but that
for two or three years tho payments
would rcmnin about the same. It win
Ids opinion that there would bo a
slight reduction in the" number of pen
sioners on account of deaths, but that
tho allowance of tho new pension with
back pay and urrears would probably
keep tho amount about even. While
the amount of mony paid for pensions
will not bo materially different from
that of pnst years, it appears that
there has been added to the pension
rolls during the year about 1,000
names in excess of those that havo
dropped out. as there has been an in
crease, Instead of a decrease. Thcro
have been a great many outstanding
pension claims adjusted during tho
year, and that accounts for tho "largo
increa e. Tho year has not been fa
tal to pensioners, lite death rate being
less than would be anticipated at tho
timo of life at which the veterans of
tho lato war have arrived.
