The first fatal accident of the fishing
season of '35 is reported by way of II
waco. During a heavy blow last Tues
day morning a breaker struck the boat of
Frederick Kelson, who with his boat
puller was drifting 01T Peacock spit, and
overturned it. Others eio?e by saw the
disaster mid with true courage hastened
to Jrccue their foHow-nsbprmen. In the
face of wind and wave ibv reached the
capsized boat and making fast sorted to
tow it into smooth water. It was a long,
hard pull, and oar informant who fishes

Liberty hall was the center of attrac
tion last evoniug. it being the opening
night of the ladies' fair and baz-inr in
aid of tho tournament fund.
Tho hall was profusely decorated with
flowers, and from the entrance to the
back of the stage most tastefully ar
ranged. On tho tables and in the booths
were displayed many rare specimens of
handiwork. From the opening lo a late
hour last evening it was crowned by la
dies and gentlemen, who testified by their
presence nnu substantial encouragement
tho interest they felt in making the affair
In the room adjoining was set a sp'.en
did dinner, daintily served by tho ladies
who deserve praise for their unselfish ef
forts to assist in making the coming fire
men's tournament a success. A largo
number partook of the good things so
bounteously supplied, and from tho
amount of fresh food that was sent in
last evening it is evident that a still lar
ger number is expected this evening.
Tho fair is well worth a visit and any
one going will spend a pleasant evening.
Don't forget to tell tho folks at home not
to mind about dinner to-day but to put
on their best bib and tucker, as yon will

York Mercantile Exchange:
Nuw Yor.K, May fi, 1S3T.
Mr. Daiid Hunt:
Deau Sin: In rGply to your question
concerning my opinion in T&gard to the
canned goods scare. I would stato that
tho scare in question is quito without
foundation iu fact and is duo entirely to
sensational newspaper articles. Since
my connection with this department I
havo not received a single complaint
against canned goods which careful in
vestigation proved well founded. I will
rmt it evon stronger. I havo never s?e:i
a single case of alleged canned goods
poisoning which cirefal investigation
did not completely refute. I do not be
lieve that preserving food iu hermetically
sealed tins in any wt3 renders it less
wuoiesome than it wouiu otuerwisc us
provided, of course, that the preaerving
is properly done.
Youra very truly,

A special convention of the above di
vision is hereby calhd for Tuesday
evening, June 2d. If85, at 8:30 sharp, for
drill, at the Pythian castle. Every mem
ber is notified to attend.
Bv order of the Commander.
Jno. O. Bozorth,
iwi ntifil suBcsssfullv in the great popu
lous cities, as there the possibilities of
detection are reduced to a mere nothing.
It take an adroit rogue to be a first-class
swindler: hence women, who have moro
tact than men, are always chosen to do
the fine work of entrapping tho victim.
Once in the toils, the plucking is dono
by the male confederates, and i3 usuolly
an easy and safe process. Their meth
ods are many, curious and novel. Tho
latest and most novel is one recently
come to light.
A beautiful and accomplished girl
sought employment in n down town busi
ness establishment ran by a father and
wi. She managed to entangle both, and
got up an escapade with tho young man
which coht him a very tidy little sum be
fore the cud was reached. He wrote her
i"ffcetiouatc letters, made short excur
sions around and had a lovely time gen
erally, until one fine morning an elderly
ruffian stopped up, claiming lo bo her
father. Tim idiot was only too glad to
disgorge liberally on the spot. Then the
ex charmer threatened to sue for the re
covery of her letters and the balance duo
on ber furniture: to avoid r. scandal ho
paid up handsomely. Finally, fearing he
was to be bled to death by these vam
pires, he appealed to the police. A singlo
visit, with a promise of arrest sufficed to
settle the whole business.
A neat trick is for a pretty blackmailer
to cuter a store where there are p. great
many clerks. Ones in the store, she plies
all hor feminine art on tho chosen Mctim
(ono who holds a pretty good position,
and whoso circumstances sho has learned
something about), nnd, engaging him in
conversation, lets slipsomostray remark,
which she emphasizes with her eyes. If
lio smiles and retorts in the same vein, a
point has been gained. Afser that the
conquest is uot difticult. A visit or two,
a matinee, an opera night, and then some
fine day my ludy sails into tho store liko
a Spanish pirate bent on plunder. A
hurried talk; tho man looks glum, bat
hands outthemonoi' theensnaror has de
manded. After that she rends him regu
larly, onlv at short and shorter intervals,
until something "goes bust," 113 tho dy
ing is. liituer sue gets 111 jau or ji oig
scandil breaks ont, or possibly hodeSos
her: but as a rule ho hasn't the pluck to
do that, and iu many cases the pay pro
cess goes on for years.
A well known editor of mu;h bril
liancy and sagacity on the metropolitan
press was badly dono for some time ago
by a pretty littlo widow. Sho first relied
ou him. and her woful talc, backed by
her girlish face, enlisted his sympathies
in her cause. Then came requests for
theater and concert tickets and other
courtesies, in compliance with which ho
generally sent a gallantly worded note.
On tho strength of these letters, and a
confederate, it cost him 1,000 inside of
three months. He was too sensitivo to
public opinion to hand her over to tho
police, and had not a friend of his stepped
in and grappled matters with an iron
hand, ho probably would have been
n victim to-dav of either her greed or
Hero is another case: A Broadway mer
chant who makes a specialty of silk" and
satins has a dark room fitted up in his
store where ho can show the effect of
gaslight upon his goods. Ono dny he es
corted a lady to hi3 room to show n piece
of satin und'er tho g is jet. Hardly had
tho door shut upon them than sho tore
oif her bonnet and sneqn. and liinging
her arms ab jn his neck shrikoed at tho
top of her voice. The clerks rushed in
and saw the bos3 struggling with a beau
tiful lady whose clothes were half torn
off her back. Here was n pretty kettle of
fish. It cost r00 to hnsh the matter up.
bat he refnsos to enter that room with a
ladv unless accompanied by a cash boy.

suspect men always, but they are con
summate fools enough nevei-to suspect a
handsome woman. The glamour of hr
face, the witchery of her eyes nnd the
soft ripple of her tongue is too much for
their senses, and their suspicion is lulled
unt'l too lato to bo of any value. One
meets these women everywhere- at tho
theater, on the cars, in the street. All
the summer boarding house and sea

grounds for them. Saratoga is full of
them in season, nnd not long since I
know one who entertained two clergy

"Rock of ages, cleft for me"
Thoughtlessly tho maiden sung,
Fell tho words unconsciously
From her girlish, gleeful tongue.
Sang as little children sing,
Sang as sing tho birds in June;
Fell tho words liko light leaves down
On the current of tho tune,
"Rock of ages, cleft for me.
Let me hido myself in thee."
"Let mo hido myself in theo"
Felt her soul no need to hide,
Sweet the song as song could be,
And she had no thought beside,
All the words uuhecdingly
Fell from lips untouched by care.
Dreaming not that they might be
On some other lips a prayer.
"Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hido myself in thee."
"Rock of ages, cleft for me"
'Twas a woman who sang them now
Pleisantlv and prayerfully.
Every word her heart did know.
Rose the song as storm-tossed bird
Beats with weary wing the air,
Everv note with sorrow stirred,
Every syllable a prayer
"Rock of ages, cleft forme,
Let mo hide myself in thee."
"Rock of ages, cleft for me"
Lips grown aged sung the liyran
Trustingly nnd tenderly.
Voice grown weakand'eyes grown dim,
"Let mo hido myself in thee."
Trembling though tho voice and low,
Roso tho sweet strain peacefully,
Liko a river in its flow;
Sang as only one can sing
Who beholds tho promised rost
'Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself m thee."
"Rock of ages, cleft for me''
Sung above a coffin lid;
Underneath all restfully
All life's joys and sorrows hid;
Nevermore, oh, storm-tossed soul,
Nevermore from wind or tide
Wilt thou need thyself to hide.
Could tho sightless, sunken eyes,
Closed beneath the soft, gray hair,
Could the muto and stiffened lips
Move again in pleading prayer,
Still, aye still, the words would be
'Let mo hido myself in thee."

The current number of Harper's Weekly
has soino fino illustrations of the emi
nent divines who hove just finished
revising tho old Testament. With
kindly consideration for the fastidious
tasl63 of this day and generation tho re
vised old Testament just issued discards
the word "hell." Inplacoof "hell" ap
pears tho word "Sheol." As tho key to
tho pronunciation has not yet reached
Astoria it is hard to say just how this
word is to bo mouthed. As the revisors
of tho new Testament havo replaced the
word "hell'' with "hades," and tho revis
ors of the old Testament havo replaced
it with tue word "sheol," tne presump
tion is that tho old-fashioned orthodox
hell has been discarded from the Bible.
This is rough on all concerned, but as
the revisors were all godly men thoy cer
tainly ought to know.
