An Interesting Case.
Supreme Court of Michigan has
,1 an interesting suit. A Methodist
lr had made an appeal to his con.
'on during the usual Sunday eer-
money and subscriptions for the
tie of a church building. The de-
t in this action subscribed twen
dollars, but afterwards refused to
ay it, ana when suit was brought
against him he pleaded that the sub
scription or promise being made on Sun
day, was illegal, and therefore could not
be enforced. The statutes of Michigan
prohibit, vndetpenalty of a fine, every
person from doing on Sunday , " any
manner of business or work except on
ly works of necessity or charity." The
rSupreme Court says that taking sub
scriptions on Sunday is uot a work of
necessity, for the reason that it can be
.done at any other time. There is no
doubt saye the court, that this is -the
most convenient time to attend to the
.matter, but it might, for the same rea
'i6n, ha-ve been the most convenient
time for doing other business, such as
the trading of horses, the hiring of la
borers, and the general settlements of
account, bad the persons present been
disposed to engage in such transactions.
But tke taking of subscriptions, as the
court holds is a work of charity which
comes within the exception made by the
statute. All the necessary or usual work
says the opinion, connected with relig
ious worship is a work of charity.
Otherwise the preacher, the organist, and
ithe sexton would violate the law when
ver they performed their church duties
.ob Sunday. The subscription was there
fore held to be lawful, and the defendant
was bound to pay it.
.- The Iron Trade.
, Tlie fall In the price of Iron w ill prob
ably he followed by a reduction in the
wages of the operatives. At least this
is likely to be the out come of the secret
meeting of bar . iron manufacturers
which was held at Philadelphia last
Wednesday, and as the gathering was
one of the largest of this particular bus
iness ever held in the country, it may be
presumed that whatever course of action
is definitely decided on will govern the
" trade at large. Some of the papers in
the iron districts of England were ex
pressing surprise the other day at the
fact that the wages of puddlers in the
United States were nearly SOU per cent.
1 higher than the average in the .old
country. The figures given at the re
cent meeting support this statement,
(the English price for puddling being $2
.'per ton, the Philadelphia figure $5.40,
and the Pittsburgh $5.80 to 6. Iron
manufactuiers in general are freely glv-
inar expression to the onlnlon that if
foreign competition Is to be successfully
. fir ed by douaet.Ho manufacture, the wa-
gps, not only of puddlers, but of all
skilled laborers In rolling mills, must
come down from 10 to S!0 per cent.,
which will bring them to the level of
the prices ruling at the beginning of the
present year. It Is no secret that sotne
of the worklngmen have been expecting
this action for at least a couple of weeks,
and that In some parts of Pennsylvania
there has been some talk of a resistance
to the proposed reduction. It Is to lie
trusted, however, that the men will look
before they leap. They may rest assur
ed that the present action Is born of
necessity, and should they resolve upon
a strike, they will only succeed In glr.

WHOLE T0WN3 WIPED OUT.
A Terrific Storm.
On Friday night a week, the most se.
vere storm, we think that ever visited
this country, passed over Missouri strik
ing at various points on Its way. The
town of Mar&hfleld, Mo., having about
800 populutlon was entirely destroyed.
A man who came to the depot at the
edge of town while the train was there,
reported that at 0:30 o'clock a furious
hurricane struck the place, and levelled
all that part of the town lying west of
the Centre Square Hat to the ground.
The debris immediately took fire In sev
eral places, and the flumes could be dis
tinctly seen at some half dozen points
by the passenger on the train. Forty
dead bodies had been taken out and
many more were supposed to be burled
in the ruins, or burned up. There wore
also many living still Imprisoned In the
debris of the fallen buildings. All the
physicians of the town were killed ex
cepting two, and there was great need of
doctors to attend to the wounded, of
whom It was said there were some 200.
Later dispatches give further particu
lars and show the disaster in still worse
colors. Seventy-one victims of Satur-
day's storm have been buried, and some
twenty-five or more are in a dying con
dition. 1 he number seriously wounded
is about one hundred and fifty. A baby
eighteen monthB old, whose mother was
killed and all its friends wounded, was
found on Monday in a ravine north of
the town where it had lain all night. It
is now doing well. Another child two
years old, which was found on Saturday
afternoon In a tree, where It had been
nearly twenty-fours, was claimed yester-
ty Us parents who lived two miles and
a half away. The child's aerial flight
must have .been over three miles. It
was bruised but not seriously hurt. Va
rious kinds of property, such as wagons
are being claimed that were blown three
or four miles. It is reported that from
thirty to forty persons were killed by
uie spurs or the tornado In the surround
ing country, and that the town of Cor-
sicana is as badly wrecked as Marou
The other places where reports have
come from of the damages of this storm
areas the following: Cray's Creek,
near Jefferson City, Mo., where several
people were hurt, houses blown down,
and one house fell on the Paciflo Rail
road track, demolishing a locomotive
and Injuring several train men; Decatur
111. ; La PJuce, 111., where some loaded
grain-cars were wrecked ; Ottawa, 111.,
where the city gas-works and six school
houses were unroofed ; Warien, 111.,
houses, fences and bridges blown down ;
Wlnona.Ill., several bouses blown down
and others damaged. ' At the town of
SUles, Iowa, the cyclone' path was
twenty miles long and three hundred
yards wide, proving very destructive ;
another cyclone with similar damage,
passed near Bloomfleld. At all the
points mentioned barns and other out
houses were destroyed, trees uprooted,
fences demolished, stock killed, and the
thermometer fell rapidly.
The following interesting fact is
vouched for by George Gilbert, of St
Louis. He and his wife and four chil
dren were on a visit eight miles In the
country, and the centre of the tornado
passed within five or six yards from
where they were. A wave of water ap
parently fifteen feet high rolled in the
rear of the point of contact of the cloud
spot with the earth. It rolled over
them in a second and was icy cold,
drenching them thoroughly.
A Gang sf Thelves.
In the northwest portion of Chester
county, adjoining Lancaster and Berks
counties, there is a very rugged strip of
country known as the Welsh moun
tains. For years that place has been
tne saro retreat of a set of land pirates
known as the "Welsh Mountain Ouno-
It was a thoroughly organized body, in
cluding members in all classes of th
community . from the very scum to the
wealthy farmer. They preyed upon
their neighbors and committed
crime short of murder. Matters had
grown so bad that an organization was
perfected to ferret out and break up the
practice of the gang, and last week the
labors of this association were rewarded
by the capture of J. Lewis Robinson, a
wealthy farmer, In whose posefmlon was
found a whlfltetree belonging to a mem
ber of the detective society. An exam
ination revealed the (act that Robinson's
house must have been a kind of head
quarters at which to deposit the booty,
or else he was captain of the gang, and
what was found was his share of the
plunder, such as horse collars, double
trees, shovelB, spades, stove pipes,
clocks, crockery and glassware, silk and
other dress goods already made up,
shawls, senrfs, bedding and sheets, lap
robes, afghans, blankets ; In fuct every
Imaginable thing for the use of man,
woman or beast. The result of this
capture will no doubt lead to breaking
up this band of thelves that have so
long annoyed the citizens of the above
