Last Sunday morning, saj's the
Portland Telegram, there were six
strangers at the Calvary Presbyterian
church whoso appearance was not
particularly attractive or remarkable,
but they were more celebrated than
mere outside looks indicated. When
the collection was announced it was
stated that the entire amount would
be given to the bible society, and as
the plate was passed to the strangers
in due course each one dropped a
bright new $20 piece on it. The
good brother who passed the plate
never before had such a shock as
when he saw $120 come out of a sin
gle pew. After the service was over
it was learned that this was the Shep-
The inquiry into the recent collis
ion of the steamers Emma Rayward
and Fleetwood on the sound has
been terminated and the blame at
tached to Captains Hatch, Woolery
and Green. In reaching a conclusion
Capt Bryant said: "We find all par
ties to blame. C:ipt Green of the
Hay ward should have stopped his
steamer when ho saw a collision was
imminent, and the Fleetwood, in
stead of trying to cross the Hay-
icarcTs bow, should have passed her
stern on tho starboard side. Capt.
Hatch was master of the Fleetwood,
and should have taken her from tho
wharf, and then turned her over to
pilot Woolery. We have suspended
Capt. Hatch's license for 90 days,
Capt Woolery 's for 60 days and Capt.
Green's for 30 days."
In P.rief, Ami U the Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular habits, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made the American
nation of dj'speptics.
But Green's August Flower has
dono a wonderful work in reforming
this sad business and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
Bemembar: No happiness without
health. But Green's August Flower
brings health and happiness to tho
dyspeptic. Ask your druggist for a
bottle. Seventy-live cents.
It Reminded II im of a Little Story.
When a fuuny story is suddenly
recalled to a man's mind by some cir
cumstance, the desire to tell it i3 sud
denly irresistible. This was peculiar
ly so of old Jimmy Crawso!. He
was going down the creek one day on
a raft, when one of the raftsmen was
struck by au oar and knocked into
the raging flood. The incident sug
gested something ludicrous to old
Jimmy, and instead of plunging in
after his comrade, he drew as near to
him as he could safely, and said:
"Your falling in there reminds me of
a little thing that occurred about
twenty years" But the man had
gone down never to rise again. Kv.

A PATAL ELEVATOR A00IDENT.
Letting the T. P. & . Company Down
New Yokk, Aug. 18. Tho elevator
in a building on Mercer street fell
this morning from the third floor to
the basement with a load of eighteen
women and girls. The safety catches
on tho elevator failed to work, and
when the conveyance crashed into the
basement the occupants had nearly
all fainted and piled on each other in
fearful confusion. Mrs. Jane Lynch,
aged 55, was crushed to death. The
elevator boy, O'Neill, had his back
broken and will die. A dozen others
are injured, but not fatally.
A IUIIBOAI STBIKE.
City, of Mexico, Aug. 18. The

can be found. Freight will be kept
back from the United State3 until
the freight engines can be manned.
THE IiABOK CONVENTION.
Syrcuse, Aug. 18. When the
united labor convention reassembled
this morning the committee on cre
dentials made a report. The com
mittee had been in session all night
and had a lively time. In most all
cases they reported in favor of set
ting aside certain delegates. This
shows that tho socialistic element re
ceived but little attention from the
a lurnnoAD accident.

A VERY MILD VERDICT.
Chicago, Ang. 18. The Ntic
Chatswortb special says: The coro
ner's jury have agreed on a verdict
regarding the big wreck this morn
ing, which holds Timothy Coughlin,
section foreman, to appear before the
grand jury and negatively exonerates
the railroad company. The company
is not censured for running double
headers, for lax system of track in
spection, or for anything else. The
verdict simply says the failnre to pa
trol the track for six hours before the
train came along and the habit of
burning grass close to the track
are fit subjects for criticism.

Dexver, Aug. 18. -The cattlemen,
who now have their herds going
north on the great cattle trail, have
decided upon a move which will face
about 50,030 head now on the trail
and drive them back into Texas.
The reason for so doing is because
there is absolutely no market for the
cattle. The meeting at which this
decision was arrived, at was held in
the rooms of the Cattle Growers asso
ciation. Of the cattlo now on the
trail 20,000 head have already entered
Wyoming and 50,000 are near the Ar
For fourteen years the cattlemen
have used the trail to northern mar
kets without a season's intermission,
and many millions of dollars' worth
of cattlo have passed over it.
Tho trail begins 20 miles south of
Fort Worth nnd takes a straight lino
to Wyoming, entering Colorado
near West Las Animas. The trail
was established in 1863, and tho cow
boys had to fight their way through
hostile ba-ids of Indians for the first
few years. Last year 300,000 cattle
were driven over the trail; this year
but 70,000 havo started, and two
thirds of these aro being turned back.
Fort Worth men declare the act dis
astrous, and the result of the failure
to get the cattle to market will have
the effect of putting $2,000,000 worth
of beef back into Texas, which is al
ready overstocked, thns driving prices
down to ruinous figures.
The cowboys will have to establish
packing houses to do thoir own kill
ing, and make their own shipments.
The trail has gradually been growiug
narrower, until last year it was but
three miles wide, nnd now this has
been thrown open to settlement.
Probably as much misery comes
from habitnal constipation as from
any derangement of the functions of
