BIG MONDJN TURKEY
Who Owns It—Woman Who Purchased
Bird, or Butcher Who Dressed It
New York, Jan. I.—The question of
whether or not an unset diamond thnt
: drops from the interior of a New
Year's tarkey cm to a poultry ileaier's
; chopping Mock belongs to the dealer
I or to the customer who's just paid for
the turkey, h«« yet to be decided by
| the ,eourts. The customer, however,
I made a quick decision yesterday in
: favor of the customer.
Allen Schweitaer, wiio is the son half
iof the poultry firm of Schweitzer &
! Son, on the Yesey street side of Wawh
i ington market, was cleaning a twelve
pound turkey yesterday forenoon in his
booth for Mis. W. Marei:?, wife of Wil
lie M'arcus, billiard hall proprietor at
Ann and Nassau streets.
Mrs. Marcus, who intended to carry
the turkey to her home at 193 Vernon
avenue, Brooklyn, decided, after band
ing over $3 for the turkey, to lighten
her market basket as much as possible
ibv having young Schweitzer remove
such of the turkey's inner belongings
as were not edible.
"This turk was a igjass eater back
home, I guess,'' remarked A 1 Schweitz
er as he'noticed something glint among
the gravel and corn th»t hall just been
removed/from the gobbler's crop.
But the blue white gleam instantly
•had interested Mrs. Marcus tnnendous
]v. A few <tropß of water plus a bit of
nibbing on the poultry™an's apron con
vinced dealer and customer of what
Mrs. Marcus had first suspected—-that
the ibi-t of '' glass'' was a diamond. It
was a half carat stone aaid, so expert*
in WiHic's billiard hall later said, of
the very best blue white variety.
The poultry man handed over "the dia
mond to Mis. Marcus after she bad re
fused his offer of S4O for it. , j
WAS THE CNLYBOXLIKE SHIP
First and Last Craft of Its Kind Lost
on Lake Michigan Forty-
Six Tears Ago
Detroit, Mich.. .lan. 1. —Forty ix
years ago the steamer Hifipjcampus!
was lost on Lake Michigan while Itauml
front Benton Harbor, Mich,., to Chi
cago, and with Ivor were lasi twenty
six persons, nine of them passengers!
ami seventeen of the crew. Six pas
sengers and nine members of the crew
floated on wreckage until they were
rescued by a passing boat. The loss
caused considerable discussion bv ship
builders ao\l probably brought to an
abrupt end the building of tfat bottom, 1
square, boxlike crat't.
Although no definite reason for the. j
loss of the craft was ever learned, it t
1 was generally attributed to her boxlike |
build. Built at St. Joseph in 1867, one .
i vear before she was lost, and express- j
ly for the fruit trade, sire was 82 feet;
j long and 18 1-2 feet beam, with a hold!
'depth of S feet. Necessarily of light J
| draught, she was absolutely flat bot
! totnei with perpendicular sides. As a
result of being like a square box sihe'
could not ride the seas like other craft,
but would roll up with her flat bottom
nul square sides onto a sea and then
I roll down off it.
i A local vesselman delving through
j some old documents recently discovered
a statement printed at that time as
J coining from .lames Trimble, a paweu
' ger on the boat, who floatevi on wreck-
I age for many hours until rescued.
"On the way from the dock to the
j mouth of the river t.he boat rolled some,
! caused by striking the bank of the ca
nal. but after we got outside she be
haved well until about 2.30 a. m., when
she began to roll heavily as though
there was water in her hold and would
not gather cuickly,'' Trimble said at
that time. ' I turned in about 2.30
! and had been in mv room abaut half
[an hour when I hcar.l Captain Brown
j call to the men to throw some of the
I freight overboard.
'• When we reached the deck she lay
j partly on her beam ends on her ,»ort
side. We all threw peaches ove- joard.
, She made another lurch the same way.
! I heard Captain Brown sing out to the
! man at the wheel to hard aport.
"The cabin and boiler house went
by the board and I went aft to the
rigging and crawled out. When 1 got
out to her croestrees I saw something
white floating. It looked like a gangway
ond I dropped down onto it. It was u|
door. It was the means of my rescue."
WILL AUCTION OFF BKI DUE
Old Clark's Ferry Viaduct Will Be
Sold In Philadelphia
The old Clark's Ferry bridge, his
toric throughout the State, and the
longest covered wooden viaduct in the
world, will be sold at auction next
April in Philadelphia.
The 'bridge is nearly half a mile long
and was formerly used as a passable for
the mules that drew the canal boats
on the oM Pennsylvania canal. The
bridge is the only drive over the river
between this city and .Sunbury.
The sale is being made subject to
condemnation [uroeee-dingx instituted by
! Dauphin county and at the some time
' jiortions of the canal will bo disposed
of. The canal sales are being made to
se ure payment on its coupon bonds,
many of which are outstanding and
unpaid. The canal company was form
ed in 1866, but the use of the canal
I was entirely abandoned in 1901.

GERMANS ARE REPULSED
WITH HEAVY LOSSES AS
THEY ATTACK RUSSIANS
Peitrograd, Jan. I.—The following!
statement from the general staff of the j
commander-in-chief was given out last
"On the left bank of the Vistula no
impoi taut fighting took place to-day.
between the Vistula and tilie Pilica river
we have successfully repulsed day and
night attacks maide by the Hermans to
the south of the road from Boliroow to
Medneivice. To the north of the Ra
wka river we repulsed the German of
fensive by a counter attack. Near the
Pilica river in the vicinity of the vil
lage of Jes>eirgetz, we allowed a German
column which was attempting a night
attack to approach to a point H00 1 paces
firoin our trenches ;uh! then met it with
a galling fire which dispersed the
enemy. The enemy suffered enormous
"In some districts we have been
using hand (grenades against the eneinv
wuth the greatest success.
"In the battle of Inowlods (to the
east of Tomaszow) the enemy shifted
his offensive from Tomaszow to the di
rection of Opoczno but midway be
tween these two points, near the vil
lages of Kamens and Mazornia, we suc
| ceeded in repulsing his attacks.
"We also repulsed the Austrian ad-
I vance near Malagoszoz (South Poland)
I and to the south of Pinczow near Zak-
"In Western Gaiicia the fighting'
continued to develop to our advantage.
Our troops stormed the fortifications j
established on the heights to the south
of Kotan and Krempa, to the north of j
Bar vin ok and to the southwest of Jas- '
liska. Through bayonet attacks we
succeeded in the region of Baligrod, to
the south of L/iska, in inflicting on the
enemy considerable losses. Whole com
panies were exterminated.
■'Later in the eveninur of December
29, the enemy began to retreat pre
cipitately. According to the data re
ceived from the front we captured on
that day a number of officers, more than
3,000 prisoners and 15 mitrailleuses.''
