Four boys named Donly, Fox. South and

turned on, and one of the boys, whose cuiiosity
was not satisfied, struck a match to closer in
spect the new invention. In an instant there
was a flash and explosion. The feed cutter
was blown to pieces and the building fired.
The names spread so quietly that the boys had

THREE SHOCKING ACCIDENTS

Handling of Loaded Wenpona.
IEFECIAL TELEGEAM TO TUX DISPATCH.I
Isewabk, 0., November 13. A shocking
casualty occurred at Ontario, this county, to
day. Clarence Rodjers. aged 8 years, was
carrying a gun to the bouse when his 4 year-old
aster toddled out to meet him. In a playful
mood he raised the gun and flred, the charge
tearing off the left side of her face and killing
her The tragedy was inexcusable and has
wrecked the lather's mind.
A dispatch from Huntington, W. Vsu, says:
"While David Walker was attempting to unload
a revolver last night a cartridge exploded,
striking him in the breast near the heart, mak
ing a very serious wound.
A telegram from Point Pleasant, W. vsl,

A Hired Man, Who Made Trouble In the

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Sabatoga, November 13. Ernest Jump,
aged about 30 years, died suddenly in Dr.
Ensign's office in Jonesville, this county,
last eyening under circumstances which
would indicate that he was murdered.
Jump had been working for a farmer by the
name of Isaac Counter, who resides ebout half
amile from Jonesville. Last evening Counter
drew some cider and poured out two glasses,
handing one to Jump. They drank together",
but Jump only drank a portion of his glass,
remarking that it tasted bitter. Thereupon
Counter took Jump's glass, tasted the cider,
spit it out and threw out the balance. Jump.
believing himself to have been poisoned,
started directly for Dr. Ensign's office,
where he died about 20 minutes later.
.In the glass from which the cider had
been drunfc the doctor found strychnine.
Counter is under arrest. It seems that he
and his wife did not live happily together,
and on one or two occasions have 'separated.
He has made charges of infidelity against
her, and declared that Jump waB the cause
of all his domestic trouble.

pbseryed, and the watch recovered.
END OF THE TOUB.
The PaB.Americnn Detccatcs Completo
Their 6,000-Alllo Excursion In 42
Days The Results of the Trip
Will be Most Important.
Washington, November 13. Just 42
days after the morning of October 3, when
the special train bearing the international
delegates pulled out of the Pennsylvania
Bailroad station in Washington, the same
train, headed by the locomotive which had
drawn it nearly 6,000 miles, rolled triumph
antly into the Capital City and drew up at
the station, having successfully completed
the most interesting and. from a railroad
standpoint, the most eitensive trip ever un
dertaken by one train.
How the excursion has resulted in further
ing the important objects which the Ameri
can conference was called to attain, has been
eloquently told by the delegates themselves
throughout the medium of the newspapers.
But it might be proper to add upon the
authority of one of the United States dele
gates, who has accompanied the party over
several of its thousands of miles of travel,
that the effect upon our own peoplehas been
most beneficial, and that as a consequence
of their association and exchange of ideas
with the delegates, many of the merchants
and business men in the different towns and
cities where the tourists have been enter
tained and instructed, have had their atten
tion seriously directed to the vast commer
cial possibilities of the nations lying south
of the United States, while the people gen
erally are awakened to the fact that we
should feel the deepest interest in the wel
fare and prosperity of the sister Republics.
It was planned that instead of taking the
more direct southern route from Philadel
phia to Washington, the train should run
down by way of Harrisburg, so that the
delegates might see the beautiful Susque
hanna and the rich farming lands of that
part of Pennsylvania. This plan was fol
lowed, but unfortunately the country was
not seen at its best, as the lowering skies
and the heaVy, driving rains confined the
landscape within narrow bounds.
GEEEN TO WAMMAKER.
The President of the Western Union Attack
the Arguments of the Postmaster Gen
eralThe Practice ot Forcing
New York, November 13. Dr. Norvin
Green has made public a recent letter to
Postmaster General Wanamaker regarding
the Government telegraph rates. The fol
lowing is a portion of the communication:
The fact that the Mutual Union Telegraph
Company, a small organization belonging to
this company, did, for a time, meet the Balti
more and Ohio Telegraph Company in sending
messages short distances, and between veryfew
points, at 10 cents, is no evidence that no loss
of money was involved. If those companies had
made, as you propose, a rate of 10 cents between
all points less than 400 miles distant from each
other, the Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph sys
tem would have been sold out by the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad Company as a bad invest
ment long before it was sold; and that rate
would have reduced the earnings of the West
ern Union Company below its actual expenses
in that important department of our business.
Commodore Vanderbilt once met the attack
of a competing line of steamers by establish
ing a passenger rate of 10 cents between New
York and Albany. Nobody supposed that 10
cents was a remunerative rate for so long a
passage, but the move proved effective, be
cause it enabled the Commodore to buy the
competing line without paying a speculative
price for it Snch a course is sometimes en
tailed by circumstances upon this company.
Competing companies are often formed, not
for business profits, but to force us to buy
them out or to retire from the field. When
such competition occurs, it is a transient and
isolated feature ot our message business. To
seize upon one snch feature and, so far as your
office as an umpire may control, to make that
the basis of a rate to be charged on Govern
ment business seems to us sot judicial but
, The further cpurelou.spcest of a board of
arbitrationis within what we have always prof
fered. We have stood ready always to supply
to the incumbent of your office the fullest op
portunity for search into the cost of telegraph
ic business, and to accept freely his impartial
judgment. If you prefer to aelegate that judg
ment to a board composed as yon suggest,
leaving the rates for this year ts be governed
by that result, we shall be glad to meet it.

This is what is said about the elegantly
carved lumber on exhibition at the Pan
American Exposition. Quite a number of
people have gone there purposely to see it,
and were more than pleased with it There
are few who believed such an achievement
possible, but the work of the Goehring Geo
metrical Wood Carving Machine shows for
itself. It is capable of cutting more than
2,000 different patterns, each equaling, if
not surpassing, hand carving. It finishes
the lumber about as fast as a first-class
planer turns out straight goods. J
The home company, which owns the fran
chise for Western Pennsylvania, Eastern

pianos now coming in, and will close out
this week our entire stock of other makes of
pianos, consisting of Weber, Chickering,
Decker, Eranach & Bach, Shoemaker,

They must get out of the way, and you can
have them at first cost if you take them
away this week. We also offer a large line
of organs at prices from $15 to $100. The
fact is that the wonderful success of our

The Surveys Are Being Mnde for the New
York. Ft. Wayne and Chicago.
Valparaiso, Ind., November 13. The
surveyingand engineering corps have passed
here and will reach Chicago in a week in
their survey of the New York, Ft Wayne
and Chicago Bailroad. This line is to be a
link in a railway system between New York
and Chicago, and ultimately west of Chi
cago even as far as the Pacific coast, all
really under one management, and to be
styled the American Midland. The Chi
cago terminal will be over some belt road.
Between Chicago and Ft. Wayne this
line will run north of the Pittsburg, Ft.
Wayne and Chicago Bailroad, touching all
the chief towns that line does. The trunk
line will run north of Pittsburg, with a
branch line to that city, and continue
through Pennsylvania between the main
lines of the Erie and Pennsylvania systems.
This line will be some GO miles or more the
shortest route between Chicago and New
York. It will be finished next year.

was cured, and my health remains good
to the present day." James Buchard,
" Several years ago, on a passage borne
from California, by water, I contracted
so severe a cold that for some days I
was confined to my state-room, and a
physician on board considered my life
