Thursday's Storm Levels a Number or
Tents and Causes ConfUsleu an.
If estitis Hurled While ntDluuer.
The Intklmekncer eh Friday referred
brlelly te Thursday's storm at llm soldlers'
nncampincnt nt Mount Gretna. The storm
begun about 7 p. in., mid for nearly au hour
whooped things up In very lively style,
ranvns, tent pole-, tent ptns, clothing and
bedding being whlrleil up Inte the air and
Mattered by the wind In many directions.
It wan just after the bugles of the regular
bud sounded " retreat" at the clese of dress
jiarade that the llrst pattering or the rain
begun, and although the heavy atmosphere
and loweriug clouds had for nu hour pre
vious threatened a storm, pe ene thought
that the camp was te be given a second
touring out, as it was beheved that the
storm en Tuesday night had done all the
This was rudely shattered when the
storm of wind and hall descended from the
great hills en the west. A superb oloelri eloelri oleelri
cal display preceded the actual breaking of
the storm, in which the dark masses of
clouds were riven by the lrightrul flashes
of lightning that seemed te split the
heavens In two. Stupendous crashes of
thunder follewod each Hash and then the
rain began falling gently at first, but rap
Idly increasing In density until it resem
bled 11 fog. The wind Increased with the
sin, and from a gontle brocze it dovelepod
rapidly Inte n cyclone Unit hewled among
the troes, stripping tlicm of leaves and
breaking oil" llmts.
The full ferce of the storm scorned te
coucentrate en hoadquarler?, the tent In
tended for Governer Beaver being lifted up
and Bent whirling Inte the quadrangle in
the rear. Adjutant Gcneral Hastings,
General Stiowden and Lieutenant Warren
had just sea ted themselves in the mess tout
for a lata dinner, wJien the gust, which hid
been skirmishing around, charged the big
canvas In force und carried away all the
supports, causing a collapse that burled
tin twoeflleors under It, aud mixed tiium
lip in the debrls of tables, chairs and
The rldge pole In filling struck Goneral
Hustings en the back of the head, raising
nu egg-like lump, and anether plcee of
timber grazed his face, making a long
scratch down his cheek. Ofllcere and
servants ran" quickly te the wreck and,
afler considerable work, suecoeded In
liberating theso held down by the flattened
canvas. The fall of the mess tent was
follewod by that of the commissary depart
ment, a huge circus all'.ilr ene hundred feet
long, supported by tliree poles. Assistant
Ceunnisary General Spinglerand Division
Commissary Patten wero boneath it at the
tline of its cellapse, issuing rations te about
80 men who wero also under Its sholter.
The wind laid held, and, after a few pre.
llmlnary flaps, as ir te test its power or
resistance, gave the tent a wreneh that
smashed the peles, lere the guy ropes and
pins from the ground and ilnttened the
canvas upon the Inside, but fortunately
without injuring env ene. All or tlio.se
men were dug out of the wreck, and then
came an alarm from the staff stables, a
large canvas fly. which the wind promptly
levellcd upon thoheads of Iho frightcned
horses. Men crawled in under the canvas
and the stud9 wero quieted until their clese
ceveiing could be removed.
In the camps or the .Second and Third
Brigades the tents wero mewed down in
tiers and the details had a hard time of it
during the night, owing te all their cloth
ing being thoreughlv soaked. The HrM.
lirlgade was luckier, as but very few or
their tents went down, while the regulars,
being in a hollow, were sheltered and lest
no tents. The storm lasted ever an hour,
and when it finally ceased headquarters
E resented a sorry sight. Where there had
con a muss of tents pitched in a hollow
square, the quadrangle showed gaps whure
the tents hail geno down.
Friday morning, as if te make amends
for Thursday night, breke bright and clear.
A cool broezo blowing across the field

te after reveille and rows upon rows of
tents rapidly sprung up all ever the park.
Everybody worked with 11 will, and but
for the gullies cut in the ground by the
rushing waters the truces et the storm
were seen obliterated.
With the sounding of the breakfast call
enme the music of the Eighteenth reglm nt,
"Duquesne Grays," and the Pittsburg
boys, te the number of mere, than 000,
marched in and speedily maile themselves
at home. The only military duties re

the furnishing of a provost guard, which
was sent Inte Lebanon te drive out the
soldiers who were in tliore for a "geed

It is an opportune time te bring the claim

There Is no city or the size of Lancaster

Lancaster lias bofero been ropresenled in

IiANl.'AKTi:n'H MILITARY oiiuanijsaiiems.
Lancaster in its time has had sumo of the
best drilled military organizations in the
country. The history of the old Jacksen
Hilles, commanded by the father of Gen.
II. A. Hambright, Is familiar te our old
citizens. This organization was the pride
olthe town. Of Captain Findley's Lancas
ter Fenclbles thore are btlll a few survi
vors; among thorn ure Chilsllau Wldmyer,
Or. J. Aug. Ehler, Christian Gust and
Geerge Buckius. Cel. Jehn II. Duchman
succeeded Captain Find Icy, und after the
company disbanded Cel. Duchman reor
ganized it and became Its captain. He was
succeeded by Cel. Einleti Franklin, who
took the company le the war In ISiil.
The Jacksen Rifles, the rival organiza
tion of Cel. Dueliman's Fcncibles, bofero
the war was commanded by II. A. Hum
bright, wdin also took his command te the
army at the llrst call for troops Later en
he had the Light Guards and the Itey nebis
Bitles, but the military spirit In these latter
organizations was net great and from lack
of Interest these companies decreased lu
membership ami wero finally mustored
out of the state service.
The members or the present Lancaster
Fenclbles are as enthusiustlu a set of men
en the soldier business as could be gotten
together in this city. All they ask fieui
the slate officers is a trial. By the time
the next encampment comes they will
show what an efficient organization it is.

GoersoStclntuetz, the colored German, as
the I.ntklliukncku stated. The man was
brought te this city en the 3:55 train and
taken te the county hospital In the Ambu
lance. Stolnmetz, who Is unable te speak any
English, came te this country from Ger
many several months age, and for a month
or inore he has been hanging about Lan
caster. Love for drink la Ills great weak
ness, and he has served soveral Jail terms
for drunken and disorderly conduct. At
last hr concluded te shake the dust of Lan
caster from his feet. On Thursday evening
he was around the P. 11. It. station fur sev sev sov
oral hours, and as he was very drunk he
was refused drinks at several hetels. He
said that he Intended going te Beading,
but it soems that he did net knew where
Bending is He bearded a bsgguge car en
Western Express leaving hore at 11:10, and
rode us far as the Colobreok read crossing,
a hairmlle east oritheoms station, between
Flerin and Elizabotbtewn. At that point
thore isa sharp curve in the railroad, and
In rounding It Stolnmetz was thrown off.
When he landed he struck heavily against
a fence of pilings, badly breaking lu He
did net remain thore long, as he reared that
ofllceis might catch hi in, but he crawled
away a considerable dlstance and hid In
Track Foreman Jehn Stell passed the
ieInt about half-past soveu o'clock yester
day morning and then noticed that the
fonce was broken, but saw no one. He
returned at half-past ill no o'clock and In
the tncuutlme Stolnmetz had been found a
considerable dlstance away from the track.
Stell leaded the man en n hand cur and
took hi 111 te ML Joy,whero he was attended

A Luree Suake.
Lancaster county bids fair te rival Berks
in big suake yarns. The Inquirer has a
wouderliil taleef a big roptlle which was
sent it freui Churchtewu : On Tuesday
morning Samuel Gorden, residlng south
of the Welsh mountains, while descending
the northern slope of the mountain lu a
carriage, saw n large dark object stretched
out along the read. He discovered It te be
11 big snake, thirteen feet long. He stepped
the herse und secured a large stone. I to te
turning te the carriage he drove ateng
until opposite the suake, when he hurled

" The medical profession Is Indebted te
Professer Vaughan, of Ann Arber, Michi

Through the newspapers we learn that he

stated that he has new isolated the poisons

"Thore is a demand at preseld Ter a

that will certainly render theso poisons

slngle poison. The remedy, te be success
ful, must possess antidotal power against
all forms or poisons, piithogenetlc and inci
dental. It remains te be seen what suc
cess will attend Dr. Vaughan's attempt te
discover an agent which will, when taken
Inte the economy, act as uu antidote te
theso recently dlscovercd poisons.
" Dr. William F. Waugli has met with
excellent results from the use of compara
tively small doses of sulidio-ciirbelato or

was such that deses outirely tee large wero

" Dr. A. II. Beyor, or Philadelphia, has
been a clese observer in using this drug In

that the host results fellow the use or small
