Hut its death by tho fall wus no doubt sent in mert'3. as ils body ws found to bo burned in several TV 3 NEW pluoes, which would, in all probabili ty, liavo only prolonged its sufferings for a few hours. Mrs. Ann Shortor, of Philadelphia, aged 45 years, was filling tho lamp close by tho gas light when it explod ed, throwing tho blazing oil over her, burning her severely in tho bands, and thirteen, children of Mr. llurvey llarncs, perished in tho flames before llity could bo rescued. As soon as tho premises wero suflieicntly cooled, tho firemen went in among tho ruins, ond brought out the charred ond shapeless remains ol the two children, which wero sewed up in chillies and their bodies banded over to the afflict ed friends for interment. In Cincinnati, Miss liickford tried lo light a tiro with coal oil An ex plosion was tlio result.

A I Xeliionville. Ohio, a girl aged fifteen attempted to light o firo in a stovo by pouring coal oil upon tho kindlings. The can of oil exploded nnd tho girl was enveloped in flumes from bead to foot. After lingering in great agony for several hours she was released from her sufferings by death. Mrs. James Tyarlc, residing in Heading, Pa., used coal oil from a lamp to kindlo a fire. Tho lamp ex ploded, with a report that startled tho neighborhood, and tho flames rushed out of tho low chimney to a great height, completely Lilling tho foliage on otio sido of a treo near by. For tunately Mrs. Tyark wfs not injured, and no serious damage resulted from the fire. Now which of tho foregoing disas ters ean bo justly regarded as an Oc cident? In every caso mentioned, t,0 pnrtion wore ..-iiluT nttcm.ting to f, co;l oil lamps whilo lighted, or to kindle fires with coal oil nets which none but criminals or idiots would think of doing, as an explosion must result almost as certainly nsif a spark wero applied to a powder magazine.

A crippled man, Mr. Ilcmrry, shut in a room fn DccNsi with mud dun, has just shown pluc K and piuioneo ol mind. On Friday last, his wife and child went oul leaving him in bed. Tho dog tried to go with them, but wus driven back. Uetnery lay read ing for uboul an hour, lien bo was aroused by tho actions of tho dog, which stood in the cenlre of tho room with glaring eyes, and bristling hair, and yelping hideously. On being spoken to, tho dog slunk under the bod and lay there howling with pain. A gust ol wind closed the door, utid Domcry and the dog were shut in the room together. In a cliort limo the animal sprang from u oiler tho bed, and begun a fu rious circuit of tlie room, Knapping his jaws, from w hich oozed a thick saliva that scented the room liko mu-k. Hound and round ho rushed, upsct ing chairs, bounding over tho stove und catching at everything in his wav. Ilemcry yelled ul tho dog, and bade bim lie down. Just then tho brute halted al tho door, and Demery raised himself on bis elbow and laid bold of his crutch, intending lo rise and open tho door. The dog enraged by iho movement, sprang ut him with a bowl, bul received n blow from the crutch which sent hi in rolling on the floor. Tho animal soon struggled up, however, and reoumud bis mad race around tho room, presenting a more frightful visage than beforo. Demery moved to the sido of tho bod next to the wall, und gripped big crutch ready lor defence. It suddenly occurred to him that his wife and child would soon return, and t hut tho dog, which he saw was rabid, would probably attack olio or bothoflhcm as they would unsus pectingly enter. This wus Iroin that moment tho one trrrihlo dread that filled his mind. He formed tin unse l fish resolvo, and at once acted upon it II o would exi ilo tho hruto to ullttck off with an axo.

The high est single fall, tit Miiy period, was some 211,000 years ago, w hen tho cata ract was at tho w hirlpool, four miles below tho present falls. The fall was then two hundred and forty feet high, the wholo body of water descending in a single sheet. And as the fall re cedes u little less than a foot a 3'ear about a milu in 3,0(10 years by ex amining the t liaiactcr of the rocks and dip of the strain, we can predict the appearance which Niagra will pro sent lor two bundled centuries, pro viuing that in tho meantime no chaiigo takes place in the present order of na ture. Thus, in o.UiiJ years tho main fall will bo a little ubovo tho bead of Goat Island ; the American fall will have disappeared, and Goal l,-i;ind will bo an Island no longer. Tho height of the full will then bo twenty feel less than il now is. Another ,r,f liiij years und tlio height of the fall w ill bo reduced by forty more feet. In 10,(100 more years tho gorge will have lengthened back to tho bead of ! tho rapids, and all thai constitutes I Iho present Niagara will have disap 1 poured.
