Explosion in a Virginia Coal Mine .Utcml-
eaitfth Fearful Loss of Life.-
LYNCHBDRG , Va.t March ifc. A
special from Pocahontas this morning says :
An explosion occurred in the coal mines
here last night at 10:30 , and from one hun
dred and twenty to one hundred and fifty
miners were killed.
LATER Furtherintelllgence from Poca
hontas represents the work of destruction
at the coal mines as horrible and complete.
There were 150 men in the mine at the time
of the explosion , none of whom are be
lieved to have escaped. Those not killed
outright by the terriblQ force of the explo
sion most likely perished from after-damp.
The cause of the explosion is not yet detf-
nitely ascertained , as the entry to the mine
is ull full of bad air , but the presumption
Is that one of the miners struck fissure gas.
The latest intelligence Is that an exploring
party entered the mine a short distance and
brought out nix bodies in a frightfully mu
tilated condition. There is ho hope that
any can be rescued alive.
beveral parties ventured into the mines
this morning , but could not stand the at
mosphere. A number of bodies were dis
covered , horribly mangled , some of them
with their heads torn from the trunks and
others with limbs all gone , presenting an
appalling spectacle. The work of destruc
tion was not confined entirely to the interior
of the mines , but houses two or three hun
dred feet removed from- the mines were
overturned and in several Instances entirely
The latest'intelligence from the Pocahon
tas mine is that abeut 150 men were killed.
The accident was caused by the men going
too far with lamps. All the machinery was
wrecked. Efforts are making to recover the
bodies , but. In consequence of after-damp
verv little progress is made. A relief train ,
with physicians and explorers , has gone to
the scene of the accident. The scenes in
the vicinity of the disaster are heartrending
in the extreme.
PocHAHONTAs.Va. , March 14. The
mines are still on fire , and the only means
of putting it out is to close and seal them.
This is now being done , and the mines will
remain sealed probably two weeks. None
of the bodies have been recovered.

Alarm About the Cattle Plague.
KANSAS Crrr , March 9. Cattle men
here are generally exercised over the feared
increase of the foot and mouth disease
among the vast herds of cattle throughout
Kansas and the Indian territory , and Gov.
Qlick , of Kansas , has .been personally so
licited to interest himself in the matter. As
yet the disease , has only made its appear
ance in two counties-in Kansas , and the
citizens are carefully guarding against its
spreading. If deemed necessary , all afflict
ed cattle will be killed , the carcases burned
and a strict quarantine demanded. Several
hundred cattle are at present afflicted in
the vicinity of Woodson county , Kansas ,
and the disease is being spread in various
ways by dogs carrying bones , rabbits
crossing fields where these cattle are , . hay
that has been mouthed over , wheels of
wagons or boots and clothing of men pass
ing the fields , carrying it from one section
to the other. A well known stockman
stated that germs of the disease would re
main in the cars for six months. Sheep as
well as cattle can be afflicted.
Eiot at an Opera House.
A riot occurred in San Francisco
the 14th over the sale of Patti tickets. A
crowd 1,500 strong burst in the doors of
the Grand opera house and smashed all the
plants and pictures. The fury was sogreat
that a man picked up a boy and hurled him
through the door of the"vestibule. . The
I ! boy was badly hurt. Coats and dresses
were torn to tatters and several women
badly injured. Many fainted. . The crowd
threatened to tear the box office down and
gut the whole building unless the box office
opened. The rioters smashed in the windows
dews of the box office and the agent es
caped and sent for the police. After a hard
struggle and many arrests order was re
stored. Mapleson was arrested and booked
at the city prison for violating the fire ordi
nance in selling more tickets than there
were seats in the house. He was released
The Situation at the Pocahontas Mine.
There is little of additional interest
from the Pocahontas mines up to the 14th.
Another explosion was feared , and as a
precaution against loss of life , a guard had
been set at the entrance to the mines. The
east mine will be worked again in a few
days. The resumption of work in the west
mine , where the explosion occurred , will
not take place for two months or more.
Governor Cameron , of Virginia , has been
informed that $2,500 would meet the press

raised over $500 in a short time at Lynchburg -

Think of an undeveloped brain get
ting up book knowledge on ten differ
ent subjects all the same day , and this
going on day after day for several
years ! It is altogether contrary to the
principles of sound psychology to imagine - ,
agine that any sort of mental process ,
worthy of the name of brain thinking ,
can take place in that brain while this
is going on. The natural tendency of
a good brain at that age to be inquisi
tive and receptive is glutted to more
than satiety. The natural process of
building up a fabric of mental com
pleteness by having each new fact and
observation looked at indifferent ways ,
and having it suggest other facts and
ideas , and then settle down as a part of
the regular furniture of the mind , can
not possibly go on where new facts are
shoveled in by the hundred day by day.
The effect of this is bad on boys , but is
worse on girls , because it is more alien
to their mental constitutions.

Correspondence Rochester Democrat.
No city upon the American continent
has a larger floating population than
Washington. It is estimated that dur
ing the sessions of congress twenty-
five thousand people , whose homes are
in various parts of this and other coun
tries , make this city their place of resi
dence. Some come here , attracted by
the advantages the city offers for mak
ing the acquaintance of public men ;
others have various , claims which they
wish to present , while the great major
ity gather here , as the crows flock to
the carrion , for the sole purpose of get-
ling a morsel at the public crib. The
latter class , as a general thing , origin
ate the many schemes which terminate
in vicious bills , all of which are neither
directed at the public treasury , or
toward that revenue which the black
mailing of corporations or private en
terprises may bring.
While walking down Pennsylvania
avenue the other day , I met Mr. Wil
liam M. Ashley , formerly of your city ,
whose long residence here has made
him unusually well acquainted with the
operations of the lobby.
Having made my wante in this par
ticular direction known , in answer to
an interrogative , Mr. Ashley said :
"Yes , during my residence here I
have become well acquainted with the
workings of the 'Third House,1 as it is
termed , and could tell you of numerous
jobs , which , like the 'Heathen Chinee , '
are peculiar. "
"You do not regard the lobby , as a
body , vicious , do you ? "
"Not necessarily so there are good
and bad men comprising that body ;
yet there have been times when it must
be admitted that the combined power
of the 'third house1 has overridden
the will of the people. The bad influ
ence ot the lobby can be seen in the
numerous blood-bills that are intro
duced at every session. "
" 3ut kow can these be discovered ? "
"Easily enough , to the person who
has made the thing a study. I can de
tect them at a glance. "
"Tell to what bills do
me , you re
fer ? "
"Well , take the annual gas bills , for
instance. They are introduced for the
purpose of bleeding the Washington
gaslight company. They usually re
sult in an investigating committee which
never amounts to anything more than
a draft upon the public treasury for the
expenses of the investigation. Another
squeeze is the abattoir bills , as they are
called. These , ef course , are fought
by the butchers and market-men. The
first attempt to force a bill of this de
scription was in 1877 , when a promi
nent Washington politician offered a
fabulous sum for the franchise. "
"Anything else in this line that you
think of , Mr. Ashley P"
"Yes , there's the job to reclaim the
Potomac flats , which , had it become a
law , would have resulted in an enor
mous steal. The work is now being
done by the government itself , and will
rid the place of that malarial atmos
phere of which we hear so much out
side the city. "
"During your residence here have
you experienced the bad results of liv
ing in this climate ? "
"Well , while I have not at all times
enjoyed good health , I am certain that
the difficulty which laid me up so long
was not malarial. It was something
that had troubled me for years. A
shooting , stinging pain that at , times at
tacked different parts of my body. One
day my right arm and leg would tor
ture me with pain , there would be
great redness , heat and swelling of the
parts ; and perhaps the next day the
left arm and leg would be similarly af
fected. Then again-it would locate in
some particular part of my body and
produce a tenderness which would well
nigh drive me frantic. There would
be weeks at a time that I would be af
flicted with an intermitting kind of
pain , that would come on every after
noon and leave me comparatively free
from suffering during the balance of
the twenty-four hours. Then I would
have terrible paroxysms of pain com
ing on at any time during the day or
night when I would be obliged to lie
upon my back for hours and keep -as
motionless as possible. Every time I
attempted to move a chilly sensation
would pass over my body , or I would
faint from hot flushes. 1 suffered from
a spasmodic contraction of the mus
cles and a soreness of the back and
bowels , and even my eyeballs became
sore and distressed me greatly when
ever I wiped my face. 1 became ill-
tempered , peevish , fretful , irritable and
desperately despondent. "
"Of course you consulted the doctors
regarding your difficulty ? "
"Consulted them ? Well I should
say I did. Some told me I had neu
ralgia ; others that I had inflammatory
rheumatism , for which there was no
cure ; that I would be afflicted all my
life , and that time alone would miti
gate my sufferings. "
"But didn't they try to relieve your
miseries ? "
"Yes , they vomited and physiced me ,
blistered and bled me , plastered and
oiled me , sweat , steamed and every
thing but froze me , but without avail. "
"But how did you finally recover ? "
"I had a friend living in Michigan
who had been afflicted in a similar way
and had been cured. He wrote me re
garding his recovery and advised mete
to try the remedy which cured him.
I procured a bottle and commenced its
use , taking a tablespoonful after each
meal and at bedtime. I had used it
about a week when I noticed a decrease
of the soreness of the joints and a gen
eral feeling of relief. I persevered in
its use and finally got so I could move
around without limping , when I told
my friends that it was Warner's Safe
Rheumatic Cure that had put me on
my feet. "
"And do you regard your cure as
permanent ? "
"Certainly ; I haven't been so well
in years as I am now , and although I
have been subjected to frequent and se
vere changes-of weather this winter , I
have not felt the first intimation of the
return of my rheumatic trouble. "
"Do1 you object to the publication of
this interview , Mr. Ashley ? "
"Not at all , sir. 1 look upon it as a
duty I owe my fellow creatures to alle
viate their sufferings so far as I am
able , and any communication regard
ing my symptoms and care that may
be sent to me at 506 Maine avenue
will receive prompt and careful at
tention. " '
"Judging from your recital , Mr.
Ashley , there must be wonderful curative , -
tive properties about this medicine ? "
"Indeed , there is , sir , for no man
suffered more nor longer than did I
before this remedy gave me relief. "
"To go back to the original subject ,
Mr. Ashley , I suppose you see the same
familiar faces about the lobby session
after session ? "
"No , not so much so as you might
think. New faces are constantly seen
and old ones disappear. The strain
upon lobbyists is necessarily very great ,
and when you add to this the demoral
izing effect of late hours and intemper
ate habits and.the. . . fact that they are
after found out in their steals , their
disappearance can easily be accounted
"What proportion of these blood-
bills are successful ? "
"A verv small percentage , sir. Not
withstanding the power and influence
of the lobby , but .few of these vicious
measures pass. Were they successful
it would be a sad commentary upon
our system of government , and would
virtually annihilate one branch of it.
The great majority of them are either
reported adversely or smothered in
committee by the watchfulness and loy
alty of our congressmen. "

Oar Animal Census.
New York Mall and Express.
The number of people in the United
increases about 1,500,000 a year , but
the number of farm animals increased
4,000,000 during l883 , according to a
report just presented to the commis
sioner of agriculture by Mr. Dodge ,
statistician of the agricultural depart
. The world-wide attention
ment. - re
cently excited by the American' hog
gives especial interest at the present
time to the animal census of the re
public , which is as follows :
Animals 1884. 1883. Increase.
Horses 11,169,683 10,838,111 331,572
Mules 1,914,120 1,871,047 , 43,047

Swine 44,200,893 43,270,086 930,807
Although we have less pigs than
people , we have more than any other
country on earth , and we have almost
a sheep apiece , or nearly twice as many
of the fleecy family as the United King
dom , and we have more milch cows
than all ' the British cattle together.
We have'about as many horses as fam
ilies , allowing an average of five per
sons to each family ; and there is one
mule for every thirty inhabitants. Dur
ing its first century this republic
doubled its population every twenty-
five years , and Air. Griffen , an eminent
Erfglish statistician , recently attempted
to excite alarm by predicting that our
growth will continue at the same rate
until the soil will not be able to sup
port so many people. It will not be
equally perplexing to know how to re
duce the animal census , should theie
ever be danger of overcrowding , as in
dicated by the present rate of increase.
