DOWN HILL TO DEATH.
The Adventure of a Party of Coasters in
the Colorado Mountains.
Snow fell at Central and Black
Hawk, Colo., in November, passed ott,
came again, and by the 1st of Decem
ber the indications were that there
would'be a long and dreary winter.
By holiday times the roads, which
were constantly used, had become
firmly packed down with snow, which
was as smooth and glassy as it was
possible to make it The ores from
the mines above were hauled on sleds
and this had beaten down the track
until the grooves worn by the run
ners were like the polished steel that
formed them. Once started in them
at Nevada, a sled, unchecked, would
fly to Black Hawk without giving one
tune to say "good day" to any ac
quaintance he might pass in Central.
It was like being shot out of a oata
pult or dropped down an elevator
One of the favorite pastimes, moon
light nights in winter, was coasting,
and the course lay over this road, or
street. Some, too timid to make long
journeys, would pre-empt sections of
a half mile or so, which gave them
all the amusement they needed.
Others, more daring, would risk their
necks and limbs on longer stretches,
while still others were foolhardy
enough to make the entiie descent
from Nevada to Black Hawk. It was
just after New Year's in this winter
1865-66 that a party was made up
to ride over this course. The nights
were resplendent then with the light
of a full moon, and the great mount
ains on either side of the gulch tow
ered far above, coldly magnificent in
their immaculate coverings. The
night chosen for the great coasting
party was very cold, the thermometer
showing a registry of about zero, but
this gave a crispness to the snow and
lent an exhilaration to the light air
that sent the blood dancing through
the veins. The managers of the coast
ing party the event had been looked
forward to with a great deal of inter
est had arrauged by conference with
teamsters and others to have the road
clear about twelve o'clock that night,
which was easily accomplished, there
being but little traffic at that hour.
An immense "pung" had been secured
a rough sleigh, or runners, rather,
about twelve feet long, which was cal
culated would hold fully twenty-five
people. For the purpose of directing
the course of this sleigh, a steering
contrivance was placed in the rear,
and this, it was believed, would en
able the occupants to turn the angle
in the road in Central, where the
stretch to Black Hawk began. It was
not difficult to secure enough to
make up the party, and five ladies
bravely, if not foolhardily, insisted
upon being counted in.
At the time agreed upon all had
congregated at Nevada, and were soon
crowded upon the pung, and, a stout
fellow at the tiller, the send-off was
given. The first half-mile was a com
paratively light grade, the sleigh sped
along at a splendid rate, and all were
joyous in the prospect of a successful
run to the bottom of the long hilL
The sleigh soon showed signs of in
creasing speed as the grade increased,
and those who were at all inclined to
manifest timidity, earnestly grasped
the side of the pung or clung closely
to one another. There being danger
of too great speed, a peculiar lever
like brake had been provided. It
reached under the pung and was
easily worked. "With this to check
the mad career of the sleigh it was
believed no danger could arise that
could not be promptly met. Down
the hill they flew. Once, as Central
was neared, a collision ith a belated
miner's team seemel imminent, but
vociferous warnings enabled them to
pass in safety. Down, down, down
they flew, and Central's main street
was entered. This thoroughfare,
scarcely wide enough for two teams
to pass each other, and which, in day
time, presented a busy and noisy
scene, was now deserted by vehicles,
but the sidewalks were thronged with
people who had congregated to wit
ness the great coasting event of the
season. As the sleigh rushed down
in its wild course, a loud, long shout
went up, in which the pleasure party
joined. By tnis time the sleigh was
sweeping on at a most terrific speed,
which fairly took away the breath of
those who stood by gazing at the
strange spectacle. It seemed as
though the sleigh had no sooner ap
"peared upon the scene than it had
shot out of sight and into space; it
was one sudden dash and then gone.
As the bend of the road was
reached those who had the manage
ment of the sleigh bent all their ener
gies to the evolution that was to carry
them past all obstacles. The slight
est miscalculation might prove fatal
a moment's delay might jeopardize
their lives; a failure oj the brakes or
steering apparatus might send them
all to heaven.
One of the participants in that
wful ride said afterward that none
Appeared to realize the danger that
beset them until the turn in the road
was approached. The sled had
gathered such momentum that it
seemed impossible to stop it, and the
steadiest head and strongest hand ap
peared to be of little avail. The
snouts of merriment instantly died
out All was still as death. Men
clutched each other in frantic grasp,
- and the ladies, so brave before, looked
desparingiy for help. At the turn on
the lower or right-hand side was a
drug store. Like nearly all the build
ings of those days, it was constructed
of light material It stood close to
ihe sidewalk, which was slightly
fcigher than its floor. The rear of
the store was, perhaps, twenty-five
feet from the ground or rocks, and
was supported there by large timbers.
The gulch fell away very precipi
tously from the road on the right
hand side on the way to Black Hawk.
As the sled approached this corner
jan .effort was made to check and turn
It, bat for some reason the break re
fused to perform its work, and the
"rudder" deflecting the front end,
caused it to turn with a suddenes3
that threw four of the occupants far
out to the opposite side of the rpad.
Xike & fiain of lightening the ld
bounded across the sidewalk, and
struck the drug store with such a
that it cleaved its way through it
like an axe through a muslin sheet
i There was a sudden crash, a loud
i cry, a fall, and the next instant all
! was quiet, save the groans of the
I injured ones. The people who had
! been standing on the street at this
point to witness the nasning of tue
party, hurried over. The pung had
passed through tie store, demolishing
its contents, and had fallen upon the
rocks and snow, where it lay wrecked,
Here and there, far and wide, were
the pleasure party who had made the
fearful plunge. Six of them two
ladies were found dead, their skulls
smashed and their bodies crushed al
most out of human shape. The liv
ing were terribly maimed, and such
as were sensible cried piteously for
aid. They were cared for tenderly,
but before daybreak four more had
paid the penalty for their rashness in
death. Those who witnessed the
flight of that sleigh through the
store, like an arrow through an
apple, declare that it was the most
awful sight they ever beheld.
What is a '"Sheeny?"
In summing up for the defendant
in the suit of Adolph Salbrig against
Samuel Katzyke, tried yesterday af
ternoon before Judge Reynolds in
the city court, Lawyer Morris Good
hart edified the court, jury and spec
tators with a lucid explanation of the
origin and significance of the term
'Sheeny." The suit was for S5.000
damages for malicious prosecution,
and grew out of a neigborhood quar
rel among some Hebrews on Johnson
avenue, near Ellery street, in the
Eastern district Among the epithets
used on the occasion was that of
uSheeny." The plaintiff was arrest
ed, with another man, at the instance
of the defendant, but discharged by
Justice Massey. The other man was
held. Plaintiff claimed that the ar
rest wo3 miliciotu. for the reason
that a number of the bystanders told
the defendant on the way to the sta
tion house that plaintiff was. innocent
of the charge against him. In ex
plaining the origin and meaning of
the epithet "Sheeny," Godhart said
that it came from the words "Meesa,"
a Hebrew word' which means death,
and "Masbinnah," a Sanskirt word,
which originally signified sudden.
Collectively, these two words signified
sudden death. They were first ap
plied as a mars of opprobium to the
Israelites by the Egyptians while
they were in bondage in Egypt, and
were afterward applied to each other
for the same purpose during forty
years' wanderings in the wilderness.
After the Israelites arrived in Pales
tine the epithet continued to be ap
plied to them by the surrounding
tribes, and it has clung to them to
the present day, after having been
corrupted to its present form of
"Sheeny." Originally it was "Meesa
Mashinnah." Or, "Sudden death."
The jury gave a verdict for S50.
A Valuable Cow.
Becently the Dayton Chronicle
told a hlooming yarn about a com
mon cow that gav; liquid butter in
stead of milk. It now says: "Several
persons have doubted the truth of
our report of the wonderful butter
cow, published a few days since. Mr.
J. A. Ayers came to our sanctum
Saturdaybearing in his hand a quart
can in which was about an inch of
thick, sweet cream in the bottom,
skimmed from milk taken from the
cow that morning. Mr. Ayers whit
tled out a small paddle in presence of
0. C. White and the entire Chronicle
force, nine persons in all, and after
callincr on those rreseut to taste the
cream and see that there was no hum-'
bug about the thing, proceeded to
beat it rapidly with the paddle when,
to the surprise of all present, butter
came in just eleven seconds by the
watch. There was no butter-milk
visible, though a small quantity was
worked out afterwards. This is a
fact, and is one instance where a
Washington Territory cow comes as
near as possible to giving pure butter.
We used, the butter on our table and
found it to be of the best As we
said before the cow is of common
stock, her only peculiarity being the
wonderfnl richness of her milk."
Another cheriobedjdelusion is gone,
says the Pall Mall Gazette. Every
one has hitherto imagined that the
Esquimanx were diminutive men,
with enormous appetites, and most
travellers have brought back reports
that they were not particularly truth
ful or hospitable. But all these no
tions have been completely upset by
Dr. John Bae's lecture at the London
Institution. He distinctly denied
that the bodies of the Esquimaux
were any smaller, or their appetites
any larger than those of any other peo
ple, and as for their moral character
they seem to possess many excellent
and even episcopal virtues. Dr. Bae
asserts, from the experience both of
himself and others, that the Esqui
maux are muoh '"given to hospital
ity." Thon, too, with very rare ex
ceptions, they are the "husbands of
one wife;" and what is more remark
able, the men never beat the women
and the women never beat the chil
dren. And, lastly, Dr. Bae declares
them to be ''most truthful relaters,"
as well as "accurate observers."
Addressing a letter to Mrs. Anra
D. Wholfarth", of Seattle, the com
missioner of the general land office
says: "Notwithstanding the fact,
as you state, that the women of
Washington Territory have besn
granted the right of suffrage, it is
held by thi8 office that a married wo
man cannot make a homestead or
timber culture entry, unless she has
been deserted by her husband, or for
some other reason can be regarded as
the head of the family."
Honored for Life.
