The prisoners were well disponed
and very cool and collected, sub
mitting to everything required of

A Man Falls Down A Shaft 200
Feet and T--capes Alive.
1 Prom the lte" MM.Miwf.
On Sunday exciting, about S
o'clock. Wm. Shovel, foiciitau of
Ue Alice mine, had occasion to
descend tbe shaft of the Magna
Charta, which has recently been
sold to the Alice company. Dur
ing the day a nexv engineer had
been employed, and in the morn
itis: and afternoon lie xvhm in the
shaft house, making himself famil
iar with the operation of the u
citiitery. Ue handled the en
gine so satiffaetorily that he xvas
directed to legin work on the
night shaft, which he did. At the
time stated, Mr. Shovel undertook
to descend the shaft for the purjKJse
of putting some new men to xvork.
No sooner had lie lighted his can
dle, put one foot in the bucket
and told the engineer to "go
altead." than he began to descend
with a rapidity beyond all pre
cedent. What followed is best
related in the language of Mr.
"My first impression," he said,
sxvas that the rope had broken,
and 1 never expected to see day
light again. The speed with which
1 descended increased every foot,
until I felt I was going, xx'ith light
ning rapidity. I was about half
way doxxu, perhaps, xvheu 1 en
deavored to draxv my foot up so
as to place it in the bucket, but in
this attempt 1 struck a timber and
came very nearly being knocked
out. The next instant I struck
the bottom, anil found myself
about six feet in the north cries

quietly. They said, "for the honor
and glory of God I acknowledge
my guilt. T forgive everyoue from
my heart, even my executioner,
and J most humbly beg Almighty
God to forgive me."1 The ropes
were then put on their necks and
the caps drawn down, and at ex
actly 8:30 o'clock the hangman
pulled the lever and dropped the
unfortunates into eternity. They
ali died instantly, Charlie being
the only one xvho struggled. They
were taken down Ht 0:30. A jury
was empaneled and an inquest
he'd xx hen the usual verdict xxas'
my body xvas broken into splinters.
In a very fexv minutes some of the
boys xvImj heard the crash came to
the rescue, and in a short time I
xvas lioisted to tlie surface.'
Superintendent Hall says that
from xvhat information he can ob
tain the nexv engineer got nervous
and lost his presence f mind
xvhen Mr. Shovel stepped into the
bucket, and that after starting the
bucket on its ascent fie xvas loo
excited to put on the brake. Such
xvas the force xvith which the buck-
j et descended that it smashed to

Theologians were horrified xvhen
first informed that our planet was
a sphere. The question of anti
podes exercised them for a long
time, most of them pouring ridi
cule on the idea that men could
exist xvith their feet turned toxvard
us, and xx-ith their heads pointing
Moxvnxvard. 1 think it is Sir
George Airy xxho refers to the case
of an over-curious individual ask
ing xvhat xve should see if xxe xx'ent
to the edge of the xvorld and look
ed over. That the earth xvas a
flat surface on xvhich the sky rest
ed, xx'as the beliel entertained by
the founders of all our great relig
ious systems, liven liberal 1 ro-
tcstaut theologians stigmatized the
Lompeinicau tucorv as beinir
"built on fallible phenomena and
advanced by many arbitrary as
sumptions against evident testi
monies of Scripture." Newton
finally placed his intellectual eoxv
bar beneath these ancient notions,
and heaved them into irretrievable
ruin. Then it xvas that penetrat
ing minds, seeing the nature of
the change wrought by the nexv
astronomy in our conceptions of
the unix'erse, also discerned the
difficulty, if not the impossibility,
of accepting literally the Mosaic!
account of creation. They did!
not reject it, but they assigned it
to a meaning entirely nexv. Dr.
Samuel Clark, xvho xvas the person
al driend of Nexvton and a suppor
ter of his theory, threxv out the
idea that "n&ssibly the six days of
creation might be a typical repre
sentation of some gi eater periods.'
Clarke's cotemporary, Dr. Thomas
Burnet, wrote xvith greater decis
ion in the same strain. The Sab-
