Not only hundreds of admirable Syrl
Mi churches, but St. Sophia itself, had
been completed before the early ChriS'
tian basilica at Perigueux was begun.
Whon we think what this must have
been, with its wooden ceiling and scant,
barbaric attempts at ornament, and
what St Sophia is, with the most beau
tiful dome that has ever yet been cm
structed and a richness of finely devised
and perfectly wrought adornment that
has never yet been equaled, can we mar
vel that any kind or degree of contact
with Byzantine art deeply " impressed
. western eyes and often guided western
hands? Can we wonder that the churches
of Constantinople were copied at Raven
na, or that Charlemagne copied Ravenna
it Aix-la-Chapelle and sedulously en
touraged the immigration of Byzantine
artists? Or is it surprising that, in the
tenth oentury, the Venetians, perpetual
ly in commercial contact with every
eastern port, imitated a Constantinopolr
tan church amid their own lagoons? Be
tween the sixth and the eleventh centuries
western art Romanesque art was not
even sure what it wanted to try to do,
while in the sixth century eastern art
Byzantine art had already conceived
and perfected some of the most marvel
ous monuments of human intelligence
and taste. M. G. Van Rensselaer in
The Philadelphia Record tells of a
schoolteacher who was instructing a
class of boys in geography. Everything
went well until, in order to make the
matter plainer, she took an ordinary
globe and, pointing to the portion con
taining the United States, asked her
class where she would come out if she
should start from Philadelphia and go
straight through the earth. She kneW
they would all say China, but she
wanted to see which of her scholars
would answer first She waited fully a
minute and no answer came. Away back
in the room a grimy hand was , finally
held up. "Well, David," she asked,
"where would I come out if I should go
straight though the earth from here?"
The silence was growing thicker every
second. "Please, Miss Maude, you
would come out of the hole," was the
reply, and the class in geography was
dismissed for the day.

MARK TWAIN IN ENGLAND.
HU Opinion of the Transvaal and Its
Southampton, Aug. 4. Samuel
Clemens (Mark Twain), with his wife
and daughter, arrived today on the
steamer Norman from Table bay, Cape
Colony. Although he started out on
his tour of the world in feeble health,
being obliged often to take to his bed
between the delivery of leotures, and,
notwithstanding an attack of sickness
in India, Mr. Clemens looked the pic
ture of health when he landed here.
He hag gone far and seen much, in the
Sansdwioh islands, Australia, India,
South Afrioa. He expressed himself
as charmed with what he had seen in
"I oonsider the Transvaal the coun
try of the future," said Mr. Clemens,
"It has a delightful olimate and bound

to me in Johannesburg a little nugget
with figures on it showing the . euor

bulk of trade there is in the hands of
English and Germans, but Amerioans
should be able to oommand the lion's
Bhare of the trade in machinery, the
largest portion of the maohinery in
the Transvaal being American. Mr.
Hammond, the reform leader convicted
of treason, but whose sentenoe was
commuted, intends to bring baok from
the states with him 1300,000. The
majority of Amerioans in the Trans

gineering. The Amerioan element is
small, but the mass of the Boers make
no distinction between Americans and
English. Indeed, all foreigners, with
the ezoeption of Germans, are deferred

It Is Estimated That 4,000 Chinese
Shanghai, Aug. 4. News of a most
terrible disaster, whioh ooourred on
Sunday last in the province of Kiang
Sn, has just been brought to this city.
An immense tidal wave, fully five
miles in length and of great height,
swept in from the sea upon the coast
of Hayehan, whioh ia in the southeast
ern part of the province, inundating
the entire country and destroying
numerous small villages in its path.
At present it is estimated that 4,000
people were drowned, but it is probable
that when a full investigation has been
made, that number will be inoreased.
In addition to the great loss of hu
man life vast numbers of cattle were
drowned. Bioe fields were submerged,
and the orops almost totally destroyed,
and a famine is feared in the distriot
during the coming autumn. Great
numbers of people who escaped the
fury of the waves are left utterly desti
tute, without food or shelter or the
means of proouring it

THE , LUMBER COMBINE.,
Washington Lumbermen Mot- Afraid
That It Will Be Broken.
Taooma, Wash., Aug. 4. Manager
W. H. Hanson, one of the proprietor!.
of the, Taooma Mill Company, said
that the story sent oat from. San Fran-;
oisoo, that there was likely to be a dis
ruption of the lumber oombine, is with
out foundation. .
'The millmen tt this coast," he
said, "have been losing money long
enough, and present prioes are but lit
tle higher than the aotual cost of pro
duction. 'If 'the retail dealer of Oakland or
any other city sees to fit to out rates,
that is his business, but he oanhot ex-
peot millmen to get in any out rates t
them. My opinion of the whole
trouble is that several of the retailers
have been after the same business, and
some of those who failed to get cer
tain orders out under their more suo-
oessful competitors to try and get the
business away from them. , .
'It is safe to say there will be no re
duction in oargo rates, for two reasons.
There is no neoessity for cutting, and
the present rate will not stand it, as
the inoreased prioe for stumpage and
the greater distanoe the mills have to
go for logs would make any suoh cut
ting a loss to the millman. , ,

Express Crashes Into an Ex
100 ARE KILLED AND INJURED
Wreck Ooourred at a Railroad Cross
Ins;, and the Excursion Train Was
Literally Cut in Twain by the Express
Atlantio City, N. J., Aug. 3, A
railroad accident, horrible in its details
and sickening in its results, ooourred
this evening, just outside of this oity,
and as a result about 100 persons are
either killed or injured. "
. The Reading railroad express", which
left Philadelphia at 5:40 o'olook this
evening for Atlantio City, crashed into
a Pennsylvania railroad excursion train
at the seoond signal tower, about four
miles out from here.
The Pennsylvania train was return
ing to Bridgeton with a party of excur
sionists from that plaoe, Millville and
neighboring towns. . It was loaded
with passengers, and a rough estimate
of the killed and injured at a late hour
plaoes the number at 100. ' It is hoped
that this is an exaggeration, but the
number is undoubtedly more than fifty.
At the seoond signal tower, the
tracks of the two roads diagonally
oross. The Beadirg train was given
the signal to stop, but the brakes either
failed to work or the speed of the ex
press was too great to be checked in
time. It oaught the excursion train
broadside and ploughed through, liter
ally cleaving it in twain. The engine
of the Beading train was shattered to
pieces. Every oar on the exoursion
train was jammed to its fullest ca
pacity. As soon as the news reaobed Atlantio
City, the utmost consternation pre
vailed, but the authorities weie equal
to the emergency. Belief trains were
dispatched to the soene, loaded with
oots and bearing staffs of surgeons.
As quick as the bodies were recovered,
they were carried into the looal hos
pitals and undertaker's shops. .
A general fire alarm was sounded,
and the department promptly respond
ed, and aided in the heartrending work
of digging for the victims. Fear grew
into despair and horror as the vigorous
work of the relief gangs revealed the
awful extent of the disaster.
The first Beading relief train bore
into this oity twenty-seven mangled
oorpses, men, women and children.
The next train, not an hour later, car
ried fifteen of the maimed and wound
ed, and two of these died soon after
reaohing the oity.
As train after train plied to the
scene of the wreok, and came baok
with its ghastly burdens, the Sani
tarium, which does duty as the oity hos
pital, quiokly found its oapaoity over
taxed. Meanwhile others of the dead
and injured were being carried to the
private hospital at Ocean and Pacific
Eward Farr, engineer on the Bead
ing train, was killed outright, as was
another railroad man who rode on the
engine with him. This man, whose
name has not yet been learned, saw the
collision coming and leaped from the
cab an instant before the orash came.
Almost at the same instant the engine
out its way through and caught him
directly in its path. His body and that
of Farr were found under a heap of
debris, but the engineer lay in what
remained of the oab, and his right
hand still clasped the throttle. He had
been faithful unto death, and met it at

The excursion train was made up of
fifteen oars, the foremost of which was
a baggage oar. This and the next two
coaches oaught the full force of the
orash, and were utterly demolished.
What remained of the third oar was
tumbled into a ditch at the roadside.
The responsibility for the aocident can
not now be fixed.
William Thurlow, telegraph operator
in the tower-house, was arrested to
night and held, pending an inquiry.

More Salmon Than the Lower River
' Canneries Can Handle.
Astoria, Or., Aug. 8. The receipts
of salmon at the various lower river
canneries oontinue unusually heavy
and are far in excess of the oapaoity of
several of the paoking establishments.
Today the fish were so plentiful that
one of Kinney's men delivered nearly
100, and near Sand Island it was re
ported that the water was almost alive
with large ohinooks. Many were re
ported to have been taken with gaff
hooks by some of the men who found
themselves in the midst of a great
school of fish. At one or two can
neries, where too many fish were re
ceived, the loss is heavy. Tons of the
fish are being thrown overboard at
Kinney's on acoount of the laok of
means to preserve them until they oould
be canned. As many as possible have
been salted for the winter use by the
citizens in the west end of town, and
were freely given to all who would
carry them away.
Fishermen assert that never sinoe the
canning industry began has suoh a run
been seen. If it continues until the
close of the season, the ohances are fa
vorable for a muoh larger pack than
had been anticipated. An unusual
feature of the situaton is the quality of
the fish, which is fully equal to those
taken in June, the flesh- being excep
tionally red and firm and the quality
of oil abundant.
THROWN INTO A CISTERN.
Texas Man Slays Ills Family and Dis

Austin, Tex., Aug. 8. T. E. Belt,
a member of one of the most respect
able families, murdered his wife and
two children, aged 2 and 4 years, last
Friday night, and plaoed the dead
bodies in a cistern. He left the oity
Saturday night following the terrible
deed, after advising several neighbors
not to drink the water in his cistern,
as it was polluted. His relatives be
came alarmed at the disappearance of
his family, and began an investigation,
resulting in the finding of the bodies
today. . Burt bound his wife in a
blanket, after tying her feet and neck
together, and then dropped the body

DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Grass Valley Suffered a Severe Loss
,-,s From the Flames. ; .
Grass Valley, Cal., Aug. 8. At 8:20
o'clook tonight, an alarm of fire was
sounded for a blaze in the opera house.
The fire started under a store oooupied
by Ismert and Webbe, and spread with
great rapidity. Soon the whole build
ing was enveloped in flames, and the
adjoining buildings oommenoed to burn
and, despite the work of the firemen, it
looked as though the whole center por
tion of the town would be destroyed.
The fire department of Nevada City
came over to assist the local depart
ment, but a scarcity of water hindered
them so they were of little servioe un
til an extra head of water was turned
In to the supply ditoh. The two de
partments did great work and confined
the fire to the block bounded by Neal,
Church, Auburn and Bank streets.
The loss .will exceed f 100, 000, it is
thought. Insurance in most oases is
small, and the blow is a hard one to

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sicknesp are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millionsof families, andis
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
