Hats A TUNNEL HOLOCAUST A HUNDRED PARISIANS PER ISHUKE RATS IN A HOLE. - Twenty D3ad Bodies Recovered Burned to a Crisp -Others Found with Features DU : tor ted from Great Suf fering. Paris, Aug. 11. Today this vapt city is thrown into a gloom of sad ness as a result of the terrible ca taBtrophe which occurred on the Metropolitan Electric Railroad last evening. - The lines of thi company trav erse the city mostly io tunnels, and in one of the longest underground passages the frightful accident hap pened. ; ,.- The horror was caused by a train breaking down in the tunnel at Menitrnontant, a very populous die trict of the city. -1 be pas3engers were fortunate in escaping from the train just as another came along. The second was -given .orders to Dush the disabled train out of tbe tunnel, and to the repairing eheds. While this was being accomplished both trains took fire, but all aboard succeeded in escaping. : While the trains were burning, a crowded section from Les Cour ronnes arrived at the preceding sta tion, and seeing dense clouds ot smoke pouring from the tunnel, the people grew frantic and tried to escape through windows and every other means of egress. The smoke became unendurable, and many of those. who had gained tne outside of the train were suffo cated. Others who tried to return to Bellville also lost their lives. The railroad officials are severely criticised thiB morning for not 1 at once running- the train .back from the smoke-filled jjaseageway and for not compelling the passengers to remain in the cars until this could be accomplished. . Not until 7 o'clock this morning were firemen able to penetrate the tunnels at Menitmontent, the scene of last night's catastrophe.Sev en corpses of persons, were found who were smothered while buying tickets. . Further on! the body of the agent was found near the ticket Booth. The fumes at this point were so dense and overpowering that the firemen were unable to penetrate further. At Couronnes station corpses were strewn at every step, and. at 7 o'clock this morning 45 bodies had been removed to the surface, and within the next hour 35 more, making a total of 90. The unhappy victims had left the train, evidently trying to reach the open air, when .'they became as phyxiated. " The bedies bore a-con-vujUed appearance. Many were holding handkerchiefs to their mouths.' ..; Faces were swollen arid distorted, and in many cases tbe ekin bad peeled off. The victims were equally divided into men,' women and children. Some were handsomely dressed and had evidently been prominent, but few Identifications have as yet been made. ' ; The terrible mortality was caus ed by smoke, the people having no means of egress except through a narrow stairway. Eighteen months ago the Paris fire department warned officials of the Metropolitan Railway to put in airholes the entire distance of their tunnels, in order to allow fumes and gases to escape. . The order was ignored. ' As the foreman advanced bodies were removed from . the tunnel to tbe entrance, where they were tem porarily laid in a long line of wait ing hearses and ambulances. An immense crowd surrounded the morgue. Thirteen bodies have so far been identified, but 20 are burn ed beyond recognition. Exploration of the tunnel: pro gresses slowly, ? with extreme pre caution, as a collapse of a portion of the street is feared. Here and there in the fatal tunnel large pools of blood reveal the fearful struggle of life between the panic stricken fugitives. The v prominent artist, Sandillon, was found among the dead. . ' , - . As official inquiry is proceeding, the most . vivid, description 01 the accident is told, which is con sistent with the version of Station- master Didiei;, at Couronnes station. It is now eaid that train 43; was disabled before reaching Barbes, and was emptied of all passengers, who walked' to : the station. The second trains was coupled on to the disabled one to clear the track, and both ran by 'four stations very rap idly, and when nearing Couronnes flames were jseen issuing from the floors and sMes of the rear car. . "I motioned," said M. Didier, "the fact, and desperately cried to stop. I yelled to the trainmen that tbey couldnt reach the terminus, but the mechanics in charge shout ed back to leave them alone. The train' swept into the tuonel and Me nitmontant station was almost reached, when a violent explosion' occurred, and instantly eight cars wera'v aflame, leaving the employes barely time to jump and run "for their lives. "Flames rising to the top of the tunnel melted the electric wires, throwing tbe tunnel into darkness save for the lurid glare of the con flagration. Train 48 arrived just theoj,fiHed with passengers, and stopped 300 yards from the burning care'l A panic followed. Some per sons tried to run to Belleville sta tion,' and others for Couror nes . Soma escaped while others fell as-1 phyxiated." Another witness, a passenger, Oli ver, said the passengers .fought des perately when they jumped to the track and started to flee. Women and children were trampled under, foot and were stricken down. Oli ver eay 8 had tbe mob . turned to ward Belleville instead of Couron nes many more would have been saved. 'Every one acted for' him self and admitted that he ran over prostrate persons, and said 1 if he had 30 feet further to go he couldn't have saved bis own life. One instance of heroism and cool ness was displayed by the station agent at Belleville, who tried to re assure . the people and implored calmness. He was not heeded, but ecreaming and fighting, the panic stricken pasBengere jumped over one another, ? One "passenger named Berne personally rescued 10 per sons, lbe stationmaster bimselt refused to leave his post until he fell and was asphyxiated, after which the stifling fumes prevented further penetration into the tunnel. Chicago. Aug. 10. Great com ment was occasioned here today by General Miles, who gave an ex tended interview on his views of armies and war. The retired gen eral said that he did not hesitate to say that standing armies are ene mies to republicanism and the peace of the woild. lie went further and stated that the aristocracy more particularly desired an army, but that their re tention was a. tax on the people, which would be eliminated to the well-being of all democratic forms of government. Tbe general said that war la ab horrent, and human intelligence denounces it. : '' "I advocate a congress of powers and the adoption of the rule that one soldier is enough for each thousand inhabitants. "Let : eoldiers become artisans and farmers," said General Miles', "add thus relieve the world of a mil- ion parasites whose sole business is useless war. The armies of the world are artificial, and if main tained will eventually cause disas ter.".'' : - ' Accompanying General . Miles on his westward trip is a considerable party of veterans, including Gener al Black and General Maus, who is going to Fort Reno to assume com mand, ji ' Tbe statement of General Miles- and his strong advocacy of elimin ation of the army has caused a marked stir in all industrial and commercial circles, When you want a physic that is mild and gentle, easy to take and certain to act, always use Cham berlain's Stomach and Liver Tab- etsr .

I. L. Brooks. HALF-A-SNAKE BITE. A MAN'S EXPERIENCE WITH A SNAKE THAT FOUGHT IN' SECTIONS. At First It Made a Lunge for the Horse's Leg Cut It in Two With a Hatchet Bitten '' in the Forefinger Arm Badly Swollen. Williamsport, Pa., Aug. 5.- Wil ham Schley, of Decatur township, has resolved to never again cut i rattlesnake into more than two pie ces. An experience which he had a day or two ago has convinced him that he may make two snakes out of one with impunity, but when he gets greedy and tries to make three, there is apt to be trouble. Inci dentally Mr. Schley has learned that as snake-bite medicine com mon chicken can- give cards and spades to whisky a remedy which heretofore has been regarded as an indispensable adjunct to life in this mountainous region. It msy be of interest to many to know nust how it feels to be bitten by half a snake, and so Mr. Schley's account of his experience is given as he told it. While he talked he held a swollen and discolored right arm in a sling and sat dangling his legs from the platform outside the crossroads store, near his home. A half dozen of his friends stood a bout and listened with awe at the recital, which had to be repeated as often as another man appeared on the scene; "It happened up nere in Sharer's Gap, said Mr. bchley. "I started for a mess of huckleberries. After driving up through Bald Eagle val ley to the gap, I -hitched my horse and took my basket from the bug gy. It was just a few feet from there that the berries were tbickl I was crossing the .road to the patch when I saw a big rattler right in front of me. In my time I have killed some big ones, but none that could hold a feather to that fellow. . "For a moment I stood admiring bim and ' wondering bow I could catch bim. He teemed peaceable enough, coiled up there in the road, and I thought he might stay there till I could get a crotcbed stick in tbe woods and catch him. I had a hatchet in the buggy and went to get it, thinking to cut a crotcbed stick with it. "Well, sir, that snake; must have been watching me, for the moment I turned my back it made a lunge for the horse's leg. I brought the hatchet down on the rattler, and when I lifted it there were two snakes where there had been but one before. I had cut the fellow in two, and yet I hadn't taken the fight out of him. No, sir. He kept right on that is, tbe front part of him did and in another moment he was ready to strike the horse. - So again my hatchet went down, but he swerved aside and let me have those fangs right in the forefinger of my right nand here. "Well, I tried to shake him off, but he wouldn't shake worth a ' cent. In my excitement I , forgot that 1 bad a horse and buggy - so near at hand, but I did remember that Christ Sharer lived about . five miles from where I was, and I started over the hill toward his house. I put my foot down on the end of the snake and pulled my band free from his fangs. I ran faster than before until I reached Sharer's home. ' My finger had swollen to twice its natural size and my hand was badly swollen. My arm was' blue up to the elbow. Sharer at once bound my arm to stop the circula tion and then poured whiskey into me. ' "Sharer killed a chickenl and plit it open. Then he split my finger where the fangs had entered and placed the chicken . on the wound. The chicken meat turned green and yellow, and gradually the swelling in my arm went down and the pain stopped. Mr. Sharer then made a Boultice of soap and tbe white of an egg, and put it on tbe wound. "This relieved the pain and soon the liquor that I had poured into me sent me to sleep. I remained at Mr. Sharer's house all day and then went home. Although the e welling had gone my arm felt sore and I expect it will be some time be fore I can use a hatchet again," Working Night And Day.

OBEYS THE 5GR1PTURES- Why Dr. His Darrin Does Not Light Under a Bushel. Hld (Albany Democrat.)
