; STEAMER NORMA CUT IN TWO
BY THE JACK.
"Throe ot'tho Ntirma's Crew
One Woman and Two Bien-accident
Occurs During a heavy Fog-Crew of
the Jack Taken Off.
" Alpena , Mich. , June 1.-During a
"heavy fog last night The Canadian
steamer Jack , bound down with lumber.
Collided with the steel steamer Norma
off the Menomonee river , opposite Mid-
-die island. The Norma immediately
Sunk. The cools , wheelsman and fireman
were drowned. The barge Sicken was
near by and picked up the remainder
of the crew. The Norma was valued at
$200,000 and insured for $175,000. The
7aek Is afloat , but badly damaged. Tugs
have left here to bring her in. The
Norma sunk in 300 feet of water.
The survivors from the Norms. were
1 brought here by the steamer Sicken.
! ' . The Sicken was less than a half mile
.away from the colliding boats , and the
crash was distinctly heard through the
'fog. She hastened in the direction from
.from which the noise of the crash came ,
: and soon sighted a lifeboat and life-
raft containing the crew of the Norma.
Captain Stratton , who was in command
of the Norma , stated that he had been
run down by an unknown lumber propeller -
peller , which struck his boat on the
port side , just forward of the mainmast -
-mast , cutting her almost in two. The
Norma filled immediately. He stated
that all efforts possible were made to
set the men Into the lifeboat , but three
people-the cook , a fireman and a deck
J hand , were not quick enough in leav-
1 ang the wreck , and went down with It.
After rescuing the Norma's crew the
: Sicken cruised around in the fog to find
' ' the craft with which the Norma had
been in collision. After searching a
.considerable time the boat was located
4 : and was found to be the Canadian propeller -
peller Jack , loaded with rock elm. Her
entire bow was stove in , and the boat
was full of water. The captaipf the
: Sicken sent a boat to the Jack and took
I off ten of her crew. The captain , both
mates , and both engineers refused to
.desert the ship , and were left on board.
1 The life-saving' crew at Little Island
; : and the tug Ralph were sent out looking -
! ing for the Jack as soon as the Sicken
' ! ; reported the loss. It is feared that her
t i cargo will become so water-soaked that
' I she will go down before the life-savers
" ' can find her.
The Norma belonged to the Menominee -
nee Transit company and was of the
best type of lake freight carriers. She
was built in 1890 , measured 1,570 net
'tons and Is rated in this year's Inland
Lloyds at $160,000 , although her cost exceeded -

"In 1596 the republican party will
stand for the restoration of bimetalilsm

there will be no difference of opinion

"Upon one question there will be
neither difference of opinion as to the

CROPS HELPED BY RAIN.
Drought Eroken in Iowa , Nebraska ,
Kansas , Arkansas and Missouri.
St. Louis , June 1.-Dispatches from
various points in Iowa , Nebraska , Kan-

Crops which were in bad condition because -
cause of the drought are much benefit-

Murphysboro , Ill. , June 1.-Douglas
Henderson and Frank Jeffrey were
hanged here at 8:17 o'clock this morning -
ing for the murder of .lames Towle at
Carterville last winter. Henderson
mounted the gallows moking a cigar ,
puffing It as coolly as a campaign ora-
tor. Before the black cap was drawn
over his face he made this little speech :
"Gentlemen : I am here to tell you good-
bye. I hope I shall meet you in heaven.
I want to warn you .all to keep out of
bad company. "
His voice was very strong and clear.
Jeffrey was not so cool and showed
signs of nervousness , but both mounted
the scaffold without effort. Jeffrey also
spoke , saying : "I am going to die for a
crime I never committed. I never done
The preparations for the execution
were then quickly completed , the trap
sprung and In twelve minutes the condemned -
demned men were pronounced dead.
Jeffrey's neck was broken , but Hender-
son died of strangulation. The bodies
were sent to Carterville , the home of
the men , where they were burled.

GOV. MORTON'S ILLNESS.
Chauncey Depew Says It May Take
him Out of the Presidential Field.
New York , Juiie 1.-Chauncey M. De-
pew was much affected when he heard
of Gov. Morton being overcome by the
heat. He was asked whether it would
have any effect upon Gov. Morton's
"It may have , " said Mr. Depew. "In
deed , it probably will. The case Is very
analogous to that of Mr. Blaine , who
had a sunstroke , if you will remember ,
in 1876 on Pennsylvania avenue , Washington -
ington , and that sunstroke was the beginning -
ginning of all his physical troubles. Before -
fore that he had been a strong and vigorous -
orous man. I hope that this will prove
to have been nothing but a slight weakness -
ness brought on by the heat , but at the
governor's age it may prove serious. "

ment erected to the memory of the late
Jeremiah M. Rusk , President Harrison's

The monument itself is a fitting memorial -
orial to the honest and rugged hero
who lies beneath it. It consists of a
plain pedestal , surmounted by a shaft
thirty-three feet in height. A tablet at
the base bears a brief epitome of the
life of the late soldier-statesman , while
a bronze shield attached to the lower
part of the shaft is inscribed with the
sentence. Non sibi , sed patriae ( "Not
for himself , but for his country" ) . The
crowd attracted by the occasion is quite
unprecedented in this secluded little

love and esteem in which Mr. Rusk was
held by all who knew him.

"What is the matter , darling ? " asked
Mrs May , as the door of her sewing-
room opened and her little Bessie , all
in tears , with her cheeks flushed and
terror in her eyes , was led in by her two
cousins. "What is the matter ?
But Bessie only screamed the louder.
"She won't tell us what it Is , " said
the elder cousin , Janie. "We were swing-
mouth and she was shaking all over ,
Janie brought a basin , mamma a glass
of water with myrrh in it , and pretty
soon Bessie felt better. Then papa told
her to feel the places where the first
teeth came out , and she felt something
"Are they my bones ? " she gasped.
"They are the second teeth pushing
out , " said papa.
"I am so thankful ! " said Bessie.
Then papa kissed her and went back
'to his study , and mamma went on :
"I told you you had twenty-eight
teeth , " she said , "and , after awhile ,
when you are older , you will have thirty-
two-four big back-teeth that are called
wisdom-teeth. It depends on yourself
to keep these teeth sound and white all
your life. You must clean them after
every meal , in the morning and before
you go to bed. I will give you the
proper brushes and powders , and you
must use a quill toothpick , and now and
then run flossjsilk between the teeth
to get out small particles. "
Bessie was much interested.
"You must never crack nuts or fruit-
kernels with your teeth , " said mamma ,
"or hold such things as pins or bodkins
or knitting-needles with them. Do as
I tell you , and your second teeth will
be as handsome as papa's. "
Mr. May had unusually fine-teeth , and
Bessie felt pleased. After awhile she
began to think she might go out and
play again , and the girls were swinging
once more , when Sarah Smith , a schoolmate -
mate , looked over the fence , and the
story had to be told to her.
"Oh , my ! " she laughed. "How funny

mine in a box. Brother Jack pulls them

She put her hand in her pocket and
pulled out a little button box , and in it
were a number of teeth , mostly crooked ,
little black things.

La Nature prints a description of a
very realistic description of fire-eating
very realistic exhibition of "fire-eat-

Paris. The fire-eaters , who have been
exhibiting in the hall of the Olympia ,
at Paris , excel in their line anything
of the kind that has been seen up to
the present. Then not only swallow
flames , but handle fire and cause it to
flash from their fingers. These fire-eat-
ers are two young Americans who have
cultivated physics and electricity con-
siderably. When they perform their experiments -
periments they are clad in a tight-fitting
costume of a red color , which represents
that of the devil of fairy sce ies. The
stage upon which they appear remains
but dimly lighted during the entire time
of their presence thereon. At the back
of it there is a piece of furniture that
resembles an office desk seen from the
rear , but , no detail of this object is
distinguishable. The performers go behind -
hind it , and seem to make some preparation -
ration with their hands there , and then

self on the grass and began to cry like
"Tell mother , Bessie , " pleaded Mrs.
May. "Why , how frightened she seems !
I think I must send for the doctor. "
At that , Bessie made an effort to control -

"I-'m not s-ick. "
"Why do you cry so , then ? " asked
Mrs. May. "Take a drink of water.
There , now , what is it pet ? "
"My-my teeth ! " sobbed Bessie. "My
teeth are loose ; They are going to break
off ! Oh , oh , oh ! they'll break off and I
can't eat any more ! "
"My front ones , " sobbed Bessie.
Mrs. May put the point of her finger
on the two little white front teenth , and ,
sure enough , they were both loose in the

it frighten you so ? Don't you know it

good , strong teeth , fit to bite harder
things with ; teeth that will last you
most of your life , if you take good care
of them. "
"Are you certain-sure , mamma ? " Bessie -
"Of course I am , " said mamma.
"I remember my first one coming out"
said Cousin Janie. "I had to go to the
dentist to have it pulled , and he gave
me something nice to rinse my mouth

Janie happened to have very handsome -
some teeth , and Bessie was comforted
by the sight of them.
"Perhaps mine wont come through , "
I am not in the least afraid of that ,
said mamma. "You will change all your
teeth , one after another ; you have twen-

Janie and Kittyy put their fingers in
their mouths and began to count ; and
Bessie did the same , but soon began to
cry again :
"Two are loose ! They' jog about ! "
"You will feel better when they are

your uncle to come here. "
Mr. May , who was a clergyman , was
writing his sermon in his study ; but he

they come to the front of the stage and
cause very thin but brilliant flames to
dart from their fingers. Bringing these
flames near their mouths they seem to

between their teeth. When they touch

seconds from the tips of their fingers ,

In a subsequent experiment without
putting anything in their mouths , they
blow with energy and a brilliant flame

They shot forth a jet of flame for a

The quaint little town of St. Nicholas ,
in East Flanders , boasts the possession
of two children of such extraordinary
abnormal growth as to put completely
in the shade all similar infant prodigies
of the past or present. These veritable
Brobdignagian youngsters are boy and
girl. The elder , Master Clement Smedst
is 15 years of age and weighs no less
than 420 pounds (30 stone ) ; the circumference -
ference of his body is 6 feet 6 inches ; he
measures 36 inches around the leg and
28 inches around the arm , His sister
Bertha is 8 years old and turns the scale
at 224 pounds (16 stone ) . In spite of
their enormous dimensions , their activity -
tivity is remarkable , for they trip and
skip with all the agility of other children -
dren of an equal age. It is an astonishing -
ing sight to see these infant mountains
of humanity romping about in country
lanes with other children of the village.
One would imagine them to be the offspring -
spring of a race of giants , so high do
they tower over the heads of their little
playfellows. Their appearance is decidedly -
cidedly interesting , both having extremely -
tremely handsome and regular features.
Bertha , like other girls of tender years ,
delights in nursing a doll , which seems
ludicrouslyy out of place and proportion
in the arms of the young giantess. The
couple are attracting the attention of
the countryy around , and on fine days
crowds of people flock into the quiet
little town in order to catch a glimpse
of these colossal children.
