have met witli the accident by no fault or

been very annoying to the railway men.
It seems that ho was on a car of coal , try

in trying to get OH" lie fell. The report
that some man pushed him oil' seems to
have no foundation in fact , and is not

own fault , and perhaps the parents are

The new rcvolvingjail scorns to dislike
to move tliis cold weather. Instead of
being \vhirled about as easily as a hand
organ , it now takes two stalwart men to
turn it about. The new jail is not such a
wonderful one as was expected , and daily
use maKcs its defects of arrangement
( juita plain. For instance , ihore is not a
place whore a violently insane person
can bo kept. The bust show for such a
patient is an iron cell , against the bars
of which lie can beat his brains out if ho
chooses. There is no comfortable place
for keeping female prisoners , and no
place for a side prisoner. The steam
heating experiment docs not seem to work
to advantage , and stoves have been sub
stituted. It will not be long before as
many causes of complaint will appear
concerning the now jail as against the
old one. It is expected that the comple
tion of the court house will enable the
making of a better arrangement for heat
ing , as tiie same' apparatus will bo used
for both buildings. Other inconveniences
of arrangements may ale bo bettered ,
but just now the wonderful advantages
of a revolving jail are not as apparent as
it was hoped they would bo.

by the accidental death of his Eon in
Texas. Particulars which followed the
lir.st telegraphic announcement of the
shocking ovcnl arc to the cll'ect that tlio
young man was directing a letter at the
old Benolield house in Texarkana , when
he heard scitllling in the kitchen. Ho
opened the door and found a plumber

They All Wanted n.iths.
John Bohn , nl tlie Ogden , was hot yes
terday , oven with the thermometer below
zero. The bursting of a water pipe or
some other trouble , made it impossible
for him to get n supply for his bath
rooms , and consequently business in that
line was temporarily suspended. John
is a rustler , and it grieves him to see
business nt a stand-still. As ono of his
customers ordered a bath , and he had to
inform him that ho could not give it , his
countenance fell almost as low as tlio
mercury. The boys concluded to torture
him still more. They explained the situ
ation to every patron of tlie place , and
every visitor , and induced them to drop
into "John's snop , ono after another , and
ask for a batli room , . The increased de
mand for baths , jiibl tit the time when
none could bo given , vras aggravating ,
but it was not considered to be contrary
to the usual rules of trade , until the num
ber of applicants t-o increased as to pass
all previous records. They kept coming ,
and it seemed as if every man in that
part of the city wanted to have a bath.
John at last fell onto himself , and pro
vided himself with a wet sponge. The
next joker who strolled in asked for a
bath. He got it square in tlio face. "A
sponge bath is all you can get here , "
fairly shrieked John as he picked up the
sponge , and set it asoak ready to hurl in
the face of tlie next inquirer. There
were no more applicants for baths.

No Stopping tlio Salvationists.
The talk of stopping the street parades
of the Salvation army has subsided hero ,
and there seems a general disposition to
lot the enthusiastic religious workers go
as they please. In other places in the
str.tc attempts have been made to line
tlie soldiers of tlio Lord , or lock them up ,
and hence thn following bit from a recent
decision by the supreme court of Michi
gan is interesting :

ROUND THE WORLD ON WHEELS.
Stevens' Narrow K cnpc Prom a
Thomas Stevens , the bicyclist , arrived
in Shanghaj on November 18 by the
steamer Pekin , from Kiukiang , having
all but accomplished his run round the
world on a bicycle. A spare , wiry-look
ing man of about live foist seven , lie
seems none the worse for his journey
and the discomforts of most of tlio last
part of it , and speaka clieorfullv of his
experiences generally. His lir.sf serious
obstacle was encountered in Afghanistan.
He was the guest of the British Delimita
tion commissioners for several days , but
by their advice turned back ! 500 miles to
Herjando , after which ho struck oil'again
into Afghanistan , at a point of safe dis
tance from the commission and their
messages ; but at Furrah , halfway be
tween Herat and Kandahar , ho was ar
rested by an Afghan cliiet ,
acting under orders , who , after
some days , escorted him back to
Herat. Ho was well treated by the
Afghans , but they would not listen to his
explanation of his journeying without a
political object , and so carried him to
Persian territory again , lie was obliged
to return to the Caspian , from which ho
went by the Caspian railwayand reached
Constantinople , and from thence ay
steamer to Kurrachcc. So that to travel
liOO miles by land ho had to go 0,000 miles
by sea. From Kurrachcehe went through
Lahore , Delhi , Agra , Cawnporc to Cal
cutta , from whence lie took steamer to
On November 13 he got his bicycle
under way again and started from Can
ton , but lie found it simply useless from
the badness of the roads. Fifty miles
were not covered between Canton and
Kiukiang. Ono momcn tlie thought that
ho was on the highway to somewhere in
particular , the next few yards brought
him to the end of his pathway , which to
ins mortification he found terminated in
a paddy lieH. So intricate and dillicult
to travel were tlie roads that it took
him over twenty-four hours to ride thirty
miles after leaving Canton , lie found
most of those pathways about twenty
inches wide and high bowlders blocked
his way at short intorvajs.
Ho reluctantly determined to give iiis
bicycle a rest and take to u sampan. It
took four days to reach Chao-choo-foo by
this means , and then after a short time
on shore to stretclt his legs , lie cot into
tlio boat again and did not leave it for
four days more , when ho found himself
under the Mooting Pass and in tlie pro
vince of Kiangse. Then he fancied that
the way was straight before him , for tlio
roads suddenly iinpoved and the bicycle ,
whicli had been for eight days borne by
coolies , was once more put into requisi
tion , and lie spun merrily ahead till ho
readied King-gan-foo. The weather
from Canton to the Meeting Pass was
very warm , but after that it grew cold
and rain tell , whicli rendered that portion
tion of the journey doubly dillicult and
disagreeable. The traveler was greatly
impressed with the high state of cultiva
tion in tlio provinces through whicli he
passed , and with this beauty of some of
the temples , notably of that between
Tcldnyuen and Lo-choo-foo. .
The people everywhere treated him
very well till ho readied Kan-Tchou Fee ,
where tlio inhabitants attacked him with
stones , and matters were looking very
serious when lie reached theyamon ae-
compamedbytwo soldierswho were sent
with him by the head man atTa-ho. Tlie
crowd hero was viirv noisy and threaten
ing and amounted to several hundred.
Hut tlio populace who were cryinir out
to "kill the foreign devil" contrived to
sci/.e the bicycle , whicli , however , es
caped with only one broken spoke , and it
was only with the greatest dilliculty that
ho was smuggled out of the yamen , and
after great exertions on tlie part of the
Che-hsien , who had to make several
proclamations calling upon tlio mob lo
disperse. Hut beyond two or thrco
bruises and many indentations in his
tepee , from stones , Air. Stevens escaped
This was by far the worst treatment
that tlie traveler received hinco ho started
on Ins journey , and shows the inhos
pitable and suspicious character of tlio
Chinese in inland parts. Although be
tween Furrah and Horjando ho passed
through a country called Dasht-5-Naumid
( thu Desert of Despair ) , whore it is said
a European never traveled before , ho had
not been anywhere subjected to the treat
ment lie received in this city. Mr.
Stevens also speaks with great disgust of
tlio filthy habits and savage fanaticism
of tlio people in tlio districts of China
lliroui'li which ho traveled. Almost all
the journey to Kiukiang was accom
plished in sampans , tlio bicyelp being
carried by coolies. From Kiukiang ho
took tlio steamer Peking to Shanghai ,
which ho left to-day for Japan.
It will bo interesting to epicures to
know that Mr. Stevens carried no com
missariat with him , but lived on the food
of tlio people through whoso countries ho
passed , nor did ho carry a tent , though
ho started witli ono from Constantinople.
He soon discarded it and was content to
put up with whatever sleeping accommo
dations ho could find on the way , some
times under a tree or a rock , again in tlio
shelter of tlio tents and huts ho came
across , and still again in tlio gorgeous
palaces of the civilized rulers of the
many lands of the cast from Calcutta to
Constantinople , in his opinion tlio only
roads in China were the water roads , that
is , tliu rivers , and ho longed to bo able
to exchange his bicycle for a houseboat ,
only of his undertaking to go round the
world on wheels ,
Mr. Slovens arrived in Nagasaki on De
cember U , readied Kobe on tlio 7th and
was to go to Yokohama ovnrland. From
that city ho expected to sail on the next
steamer to San Francisco

was the champion middle weight of the
United States. Collins called at the gen
eral's residence , taking a pair of boxing
gloves along with him. The general told
him that he was entirely out of practice
and wished to arrange for a series of les
sons. Finally ho saw the boxing gloves
and proposed to take a lesson then. Col
lins assented and tlio general led the way
to a spare room. Tlio first three rounds
were purely for scientific points ,
and Collins soon found out that the
general , though out of practice , had
science enough to absorb his whole at
tention. Both men were pretty well
winded , and a suggestion was adopted
that they rest ten minutes. At the con
clusion of that time they came to the
scratch for tlie wind-up. Several vicious
blows worn struck , ami Collins began to
bring all of his science and skill into

improved it , and by a neat and clever
undercut struck the noxintr master aler-

pletely knocked him out. Tlie noise of
