A Terrible Revenge.
Sackajiesto, Nov. 10. Tho Sunday
Leader published this morning a sensa
tional story of an attempt at tniiuwreck
ing in tho Sierra Nevada mountains.
Tho paper says that about noon Saturday
a young man, who was beating his way
ou a train, was put o(T near Cascade.
He evidently did not liko tho idea of be
ing turned adrift In that cold community,
and started down the track for tho next
station, in tho hopo of being ablo to catch
another train. Ou tho way he picked up
a spike, which ho drove between the
ends of two rails. When tho next train
came along tho engiuo jumped into the
air, but did not leavo the track. The
rails, the locomotivo and a cnuplo of cars
wero badly damaged. It was a miracle
that the cntiro train, with its hundred
passengers, was not hnrled to death,
hundreds of feet below. The man who
attempted to wreck tho train was caught
by T. It. Jones, assistant division super
intendent, who was in the vicinity. He
gave the namo of Georgo Buckman. He
confessed his ciitne, but claimed to have
been assisted by a companion. Tho
prisoner was turned over to an 'officer at

Stockton, Cal., Nov. 10. At 12:30 a.

Chineso Camp, George Morris tho assist
ant postmaster and express agent, was
shot to death by two robbars. Five
thonrand dollars In coin was shipped
from Oakdalo on the stage, and the rob
bers were evidently awaro of the fact.
Morris had the money witii him at the
tiino and when called upon to surrender
it opened tiro ou the robbers. One of
tho men had a shotgun and returned the
tire, riddling Morris with buckshot.
They then left without taking the
money. "Morrs lived about three hours
aud is said to have given a description of
tho men. The bag of money was found
by the side of tho express agent when
the stage-driver ran to the place where
the wounded man lay.
Loxdox, Nov. II. St. Jame's Gazette
thie afternoon says it is not surprised
that Lord Dunravcn's pamphlet raised a
storm of indignation in America, adding:
"His charge of foul play is entirely grat
uitous. It is totally unworthy any good
sportsman to mako such a charge now,
when no inquiry is iiossible, and it is
exceedingly discreditable. The officials
of tho Now York Yacht Club have be
haved throughout like gentlemau and
sportsmen. If the accusations aro un
true, and we decline to credit them with
out farther proof, this uiauuer of making
them will not only stop all cap contests,

Threatened by Famine.
Halitax, Nov. 11. Distressing stories
of privation and starvation arobrough by
the mail eteamer, from Jamaica. The
district of St. Elizabeth, comprising C000
persons, is in a most deplorable condi
tion.brougnt about by the failuro of early
crops by drought, and tho devastation of
tho secoud crop by the visitation of cater
pillars. Ihe government of the county
has granted 1000, tho parochial board
of St. Elizabeth 500 and private dona
tions reach 5000. But this will soon bo
exhausted. Two deaths have already
been repotted an old woman and a
girl. Many of the poorer people are ab
solutely nude, and whole families
have been liyiug for weeks on a little
flour aud sugar. Others aro Buhsisting
ou plants, and unless extensive relief
comes soon many people in the island,
old aud young, must dio from starvation
and want of even tho barest necessities.
Iu many instances mothers are offering

Ten Thousand Armenians Killed.
Constantinople, Nov. 11. It is
stated that Bahri Pasha, who was dis
missed from tho governorship owing to
tho illtrcatnient of Armenians, on the
representations of Ihe British ambass
ador, Sir Phillip Currie, and who
Saturday was decorated by the sultan
witli tlie grand Cordon of the Osmanien
order, "as u reward for good services,"
is to bo appointed to the command of
tlie Turkish troops going to Zcitouu.
Tho number of victims of the Baiburt
massacres reported to be 1,500 is esti
mated. The total number of Armen
ians, including men, women and chil
dren, killed during all of the most recent
maseacees exceed 10,000, and it is being
constantly added to. During the past
weok or ten days 300 Armenians have
been exiled, without trial, from Turkey,
and the police still making arrests. .
The Foreign Finances.
Paius, Nov. 11. Raphael this morn
ing says the great limuiuial houses have
decided to place at tlie disposal of the
market 50,000,000 to 100,000,000 francs
in order to facilitate a settlement. The
speech of tlie marquis of Salisbury de
livered in London Saturday had good
effect here. Baron do Rothchild will
preside today at the conference of finan
ciers, the object being to take concerted
action by a large subscription of capital
to meet the necessities of the situation.
Electric Plowing Abroad.
United States Consul Otto Doederlein,
at Leipsic, Germany, has made a report
to tlie State Department upon the work
ing of electric plows, which are coming
into use to some extent in that country.
From the Consul's description of the
electric plow, it ia difficult to under
stand just where the economy in its use
is to be found. That it could or wo uld
ever be made available in this country
is doubtful. To plow by electricity,
with the machines in use in Germany,
would be regarded here as too compli
cated and expensive a work to receive
much favor. There are three pieces of
machinery that go to make up the elec
trical plow, to say nothing of the chains,
anchors and cable carriages necessary in
First, a steam stationary engine, cr
"locomobile." to furnisb power to the
dynamo; eecond, the dynamo, which
famishes the electric current to the
motor, which is attached to the plow,
making the third piece of machinery.
The power is transmitted to the motor by
two copper wires or cables, which beinir
mounted on cable carriages, fellow tho
plow about. But there is yet another
thing necessary, and that is the appli
cation 'of the power of the motor to the
plow itself. This Is accomplished by a
chain stretched across the field on a line
with tho farrow, and held taut by triple
ground anchors. The anchor ehaftof
the motion a doable spur wheel, which,
in tarn, drives a pinioned shaft, which
grips the chain, and so pulls the plow
along. On reaching the end of the chain
the plow is tilted to the other side, and
the simple reversal of the current Eets
the plow in motion ic the opposite di
rection. In returning it deposits the
chain sideways ready for the next row
of furrows. A laborer, by turning a
lever, draws up the three ground an
chors, add, by this simple action, sets the
traveling wheels affixed to the anchor
axle) in motion, so that the anchors are
easily moved to the next furrow.
The plow ia fitted with two, three or
four shares, according to the Bcale ct
husbandry in which it is used. Farming
on a large scale lequires a four-share
plow and heavier machinery.
The first cost of an electric plow, with
four shares, is as follows: Cost of sta
tionary tteam engine complete, forty to
forty-fivo horse-power, 3094; dynamo
machine, including foundations and
driving belts to produce 33,000 watts per
hoar, $1190; electric conduits, complete,
I. Sa miles iu length, $1190; motor and
plowing gear. $2060; chain and anchors,
$210; total cost of an electric plow,
The amount of work that can be done
with a four-share plow in a day cf ten
hours u given as four square hectares, a
little less than nine acres. To work the
machine requites one engineer, one
driver, one man to attend the chain and
anchors and two boys to attend the cable
It will be seen from the above that
electricity in plotting is not likely to be
come popular in this country. The first
coet of Ihe machinery alone would be
Fruit Preserved in Borax.
F. M, Smith of Oakland Cal., believes
that he has solved the problem of pre
serving fresh fruit so it cau be put on the
market in a satisfactory condition.
For some time he has been experi
menting with borax, and finds the ingre
dients of that salt peculiarly adapted for
precluding vegetable decomposition.
The discovery was made some lime ago,
and was tho outcome of a conversation
on tuo preservation ot meat by borax.
Mr. Smith tried the experiment with
some cherries, and the result was bo sat
isfactory that a car of cherries was
packed in borax and shipped to'Cbicago,
whero they were disposed of at high
prices owing to their good condition.
"There is no patent on this discovery,"
said Mr. Smith, in an interview. "It is
free to all. I regard it of the utmost
value in the working out of the problem
of domestic economy. The same borax
can be ueed over and over again, and a
great amount of unnecessary waste will
be avoided by preserving fruit in this
way. Private families, as well as hotels
and restaurants, can have their borax bins
at small expense, in which they can con
stantly keep an assortment of fresh
