The tower of the shaft of the Forest
Coal company at the Ridge was burned
to the ground on Wednesday after
noon The flames were discovered at
itbout 2 o'clock uud an alarm was Im
mediately sounded. This brought a
large force of men to the scene but
the fire sad gained such great head
way that it was not possible to quench
the flames. The boiler house and engine
room, located near the tower, were in
great danger because of the probabil
ity othat the burning pile would fall
on them, but a lurge rope was thrown
around the tower and with the assist
ance ot a locomotive It was pulled down
before the flames had reached any of
the adjoining buildings. The several
streams of water that wre turned on
the fire soon put it out.
The cause of the Are is not known.
Engineer John Linderman and Master
Mechanic Jones were the first to Bee the
flames coming out of the top sof the
tower, but It was so surrounded with
smoke that it was impossible to see tha
exact spot where the tire started. For
tunately the fire burned little ot the
brattice work down in the shaft.
The shaft has been idle about a
month and improvements were being
made both inside and out. An electric
plant to be used inside the shaft was
damaged. The extent of the loss Is not
yet definitely known but will reach

He did not knor that he had made
the blunder until a friend told him of It
after the service, and then he was so
much humiliated that at the close of
the evening service he took occasion
to say to the congregation: "I am told
that this morning I said 'slobroch and
plgan.' I meant to have said the 'sll
broch and pogan.' Receive the bless
ing." Another minister could never say,
"Sweet for bitter and bitter for sweet."
and as the service called for the utter

Macready has told of an actor who,
in tendering the words, "the poisoned
cup," constantly said "the colsoned
pup," to the great delight of his au
diences. At last he managed, by much
practice, to control his utterances so
that In a public performance he pro
nounced the phrase correctly.
Instantly there was an uproar; the
audience missed the customary fun,
and wlould not let the man proceed un
til he had given the "colsoned pup" In
stead. There he was consoled with
shouts of applause.
Tea Years of a Man's Life Destroyed
btf an Injury.
From the New Haven Evening Register.
One of the most peculiar freaks of the
memory resulting from concussion of
the brain ever heard of hereabouts was
in the case of Charles E. Lamb, a ma
chinist, who was struck by an engine
in the railroad yards two weeks ago,
and who has since been In the hospital.
Lamb came here from Stamford to
visit relatives on Howard avenue. Mon
day night two weeks ago he started for
the depot, and Instead of going by a
roundabout route he climbed down from
the Howard avenue bridge and walked
up the railroad cut. As he was passing
the watch tower one of the men called
to him to get out of the way of a switch
engine. He did not do so, and was
knocked down and Injured about the
head. Lamb was removed to the Emer
gency hospital in the Organized Chari
ties building, and -It was thought there
that he had been drinking. He was
unconscious all night, and had to be
strapped to his bed, he was so violent.
After he was taken to the hospital he
did not recover consciousness for sev
eral days. Meanwhile his relatives. who
had been worried about his disappear
ance, found out where he was. His
mother and his brother came to see him.
A few days ugo Lamb began to re
cover consciousness, but he remem
bered nothing that had transpired in
the last ten year.a. He continually
called for his school friends, and seemed
to Imagine that he was back at school
again. When his mother visited him
he recognized her, but seemed puzzled
to know why her hair was so gray.
This condition continued for several
days, and occasioned many odd occur
rences, but yesterday Lamb entirely re
covered his memory, and it Is though!
he will be able to go home before long
fully recovered.
