A di'sp.ittih from I.indoa, Ontario,
dated May !lth, gives tho following ac
count of tho( sinking of tlio steamer
Victoria, plying between Loudon and
Spriiigbank, 011 tho evening of that days
"It was tliu lirst day of tho season for
the excursion boals to run regular trip,
and this circumstance, taken in council
tion with tho public holiday (tho Queen's
birthday), naturally drew largo crowds
of pleasure-seekers to tho river. Trips
were made down the river, a distance of
about four miles to Spriiigbank, a placo
of popular resort, where tho city water
works aro located, and tlu eo or 'four lo
cal steamboats took down large loads of
excursionists nt regular intervals through
hotit the day.
About four o'clock in the afternoon,
the steamer Victoria,of the Thames Nav
igation Company Line, started from the
dock on her I'oiiith and last trip for tho
day, with a large load of passengers of
all ages, variously estimated at from four
to six bundled in number. All went
well on the down trip, though the boat
was so heavily laden thai. 'she shipped
water in small quantities, occasionally
when tliu crowd would happen to surge
to any particular side. O.i the return
trip, when more than half way home, a
slight commotion on the boat", said by
somu to have been caused by tho play
ful pranks of a number of youths on the
lower dock and by other ascribed to the
boat sti ikingon a snag, caused the crowd
out of curiosity to rush to one side, and,
as the side of the boat sank with the ad
ditional weight, a volume of water a foot
or two in depth poured in upon tho lower
deck, which was crowded with passen
gers. Instantly tho crowd on both decks
rushed to the opposite side and their
weight, together with that of the water
shipped by the boat, caused a lurch from
the ojipjsito direction. Then it. was that
the disaster occurred, Tho side of the
boat sank in tbo water lo tliu depth of
one or two feet, and while the crowd on
the lower deck vero struggling to sas-e
themselves from slipping down into the
river, tho stanchions stippotling the up
p 'i- deck suddenly gave way and tho
whole structure, with its load" of human
beings, came down 011 those who were
below, crushing them on the deck and
rendering escapu impossible.
Tlio scMiu that followed cannot bo de
scribed. The boat continued to settle on
its sido deeper into the water, taking
with it many of the passengers who were
stunned by the fall of thu upper deck,
and weru therefore unable to help them
selves. Scores sank into tho water with
out consciousness of their fate, while
many others who -wore precipitated into
tho river unhurt rent thu air with their
vain appeals lor that succor which those
of thu passengers who were safe were
powerless to extend to all in a moment.
The utmost cxui lions were put forth lo
rescue as many of the drowning ones as
possible anil many were in this way saved
from a yatery grave.
As. soon as possible help was secured,

on tho steamboat Louise as fast as they
were brought up and then taken to the

as they were transferred from the steam

"Check raising is getting to bo 0110 of
the lost arts," said an old Now York de
tective, "and as checks aro prepared
nowadays they are pretty safe. There
aro somu of tho crooked men, however,
wlio know all tho tricks of removing ink.
I was onco curious enough to learn how
it was that ttiey could so successfully
alter a check. Different forgers uso dif
ferent methods. Ono successful stock
forger used equal quantities of lapis
ifiliinihnirili,vonnwn saltniid rock alum
which ho boiled for half an hour in while
wine in a new p'mkin, or ho used a fine
sponge shaped liko a pencil, which he
dipped in cqitnl quantities of tiitro ami
vitriol distilled. As he passed this point
oyer tlio ink it came riglit out. Some
times ctptil quantities of sulphur and
powdered saltpetre, both distilled, were
used. For a long time the police did not
understand what use was niade of a little
ball that now and then was found in tho
possession of a prisoner. This turned
out to be made of alkali and sulphur,
and was used for removing ink. It. is
hard to find an ink that will not disap
pear under one plan of tieatinent 01 an
other. I knew a check raiser who had a
small laboratory. Hu kept bottles of
acids of all sorts and a case of camel's
hair brushes. With a small quantity of
oxalic, or muriatic acid, somewhat di
luted, and a camel's hair pencil ho could
paint out. any number of ink spots. One
or two applications, followed by tho uso
of a blotting pad, would restore the
paper to primitive purity. It requires
skill and accurate knowledge of e.lioin
icals to use any of these plans so as not
to injure tlio texture of the paper or dis
color it. If tho paper is injured it is not
so easy to write upon it again, but by
the use of linely powdered pounce, rub
bed in lightly with tho linger and bur
nished with an ivory folder, the paper
can be repaired. Common writing ink.
however, is best removed by tho use of
oxygenated muriatic acid.
''lint the now stylo of checks, with
the amount cut through tho paper with
a die, ate hard to alter. Hero is. a check
with a revenue stamp in old gold color
in tho centre, and broad lines of red ink
are drawn close up to the nmoiint written
in. There is another broad line of red ink
after tho name of tlio payee. Up in the
left-hand corner, where tho amount is in
figures, you will see that thu figures are
also cut in between two stars, which are
likewise cut through the paper. On the
reverse sido of the cheek" just over these
cut figures is pasted a pink strip which
brings tho cut figures out in such relief
that they cannot be altered without de
tection. The only wav to alter the cheek
is to take out tho first written word in
the amount in the body of tho check and
the amount in tlio corner, and, alter re
placing them with the raised sum, to
inlay a piece of cheek paper in the place
of tho cut ligures. This inlaying pro
cess requires great care and only one or
two men 111 tins country are able lo do it.
Tho cut ligures must bo carefully cut out
by a sharp, razorliko tool, and cut in
such away that tho edges ot tho opening
will bo bevelled. Then a fresh bit of
(,f tlu 'OI,ein!f . fitted in with its
edges also bevelled. The edges must bo
held together with a paste made of flour
and strained rosin.and carefully pressed.
Soino pounce rubbed over the lines will
conceal the patch unless thero is a strong
light, and then with the same dye that
bankers uso raised figures can bo in
serted. Tlio work is delicate and is not
often attempted, as it involves tbo risk
of ruining tho check for the amount for
which it is good. Iy the way, the cul
ling of figures into the cheek bad a cu
rious origin. After a big forgery caused
by a raised check some 0110 wrote a let
tor suggesting the amount for which
checks are drawn should bo cut through
the paper. Tho suggestion was at onco
adopted by a man who, I understand
made a fortune from it.
A woman in .Smcarfc, Mason county,
III., to all appearance died. lint a few
weeus prewous to this she hail given
birth to a child, ami was apparently well,
with the exception 01 a nursing sore
mouth, from the effects of which she had
grown quite weak; so much that her
husband thought it necessary to call in
a physician, but she objected, iusistin
upon waiting a few days louger.lhinkin
she could manage tho affection without
the aid of a phvsieian. Shu soon after
wards very suddenly sank a wav, and to
all appearances gave up tho ghost. The
body was kept till the next day about
p. 111., when it was enclosed in a collin
and taken lo the graveyard, followed bv
a great niiiii) mournful friend. Iiihnin
Her out her arms were tied togi'tiior
above the elbows with a stupot cloth, so
that her hands wouid retain a position
across her breast. At the grave some of
her friends wished to view her remains
and tho collin was opened that they might
do so. On moving the lid over the glass
thov conM not see through the moisture
on it, and it was then seen that 0110 of her
hands had been torn loose from thu band
and was lying by her side.and her arms
were as limber n"s ono alive. The cir-
ciinistanees bore upon the minds of sev-
eral present, but thov still could not un
tcrtain any notion but that she was dead.
Her hands weio again placed 111 position
across bur breast and retired with thu
saino strip of cloth, and she was buried
After returning to their homes several of
appearance of tlio corpse commenced to
talk it ovir, and they soon raised a doubt
in lheir minds that sho was not dead.
About 0 o clock, that same evening sov-
eral weul to the grave and took the body
up. Oh opening tho collin they found
Iresli moisture 011 the glass ol the collin

and thev were both lying bv her side,
anil instead of her limbs being in tho
least ngid, uiev ami ner lingers weru

could not convince themselves but that
shu was dead, and shu was rebuiied.
The matter was generally discussed in
the neighborhood, and by the following
Sunday the excitement had grown so in
tense that it was decided to il-xIiuhio
her the following day. The next day
.Monday, after shu bad slept beneath the
sod for four days and nights, sho was
