THE TIMES, NEW BLOOMFIELI), FA., MAY 31. 1881.
A Wonderful Escape.
At Cincinnati last week, Bernard Koeh
ler noil FiIIb Illsgen, two house-painters,
Ivqan painting the large house at Betts
street and Central Avenue. Three o'clock
in the afternoon found them close under,
the caves of the house and sixty-five feet
from the ground. They hnd Just finished
the surface within reach and had started to
lower the scnffold a few feet. Wheu the
required distance bad been reached Hisgen
called to his partner to bang on to the rope
until he (Ilifsgen) tied his own, wheu he
would come over and perform a like ser
vice for blm. Hisgen had just completed
his own kuot when Koehler cried out :
" Come over quick, I can't bold it."
Hisgen, as quickly as possible, started
across the aerial bridge, but bad not gone
two steps when he saw the man let go his
hold and felt the lnddor give way beueath
bis feet. As he began to fall, in the ener
gy of desperation he, with both bands
grasped the almost smooth top of the
fourth story window cornice and there
hung in the air, a distance of over sixty
feet from the pavement. He then gave an
exhibition of nerve that terrified every one
who saw it. Placing the toe of one boot
against the window frame be gave bis body
a slight peudulum motion away from the
house. A second push gave him a better
impetus and as be swung on the return to
ward the window he released his hold aud
And went crashing through the glass safely
to the floor of the fourth story room, from
whence he immediately looked out through
the aperture he bad made to see what bad
become of his companion.
Koehler had not been quite so fortunate.
As he went shooting through 'the air he
caught the banging rope with both hands
and lessened bis speed all the way down at
the expense of all the cuticle of his palms,
which was burned off by the friction. He
landed in a sitting posture on the sidewalk
and was taken to the hospital with a pair
of very sore hips.
A TERRIBLE CATASTROPHE.
Over 200 Victims.
Loneox, Ont., May 24. This evening
at 0 o'clock the steamer Victoria, with over
GOO excursionists on board, was returning
from Spring Bank and when near the Cove
Railway Bridge, one mile below the city,
the boat suddenly collapse like au egg
shell and became a total wreck, level with
the water's edge. All the passengers were
instantly plunged into the stream, more
than half of them being underneath the
debris. The first news of the disaster
which reached the city was brought by the
survivors, who struggled through the
streets, wet and weary. The news fell
like a thunderbolt, aud a stampede took
place for the spot. Arriving there a hor
ble sight met their view. Fifty or sixty
bodies bad already been recovered, aud
were lying on the bank. Those arriving
from the city from every direction crowded
arouud, anxious to see if any relatives
were on boaid. ' About 1,000 families were
represented on the excursion and the wail
of angTrisli that arose at the sight of the
victims was heartrending. Fathers, moth
ers, brothers and sisters rushed about
panic stricken endeavoring to identify their
friends. About 7 o'clock 80 bodies were
recovered from under the wreck. Almost
every minute some victim was brought to
the surface and conveyed to the bank. The
steamer Princess Louise was early brought
to the spot and the victims were placed on
the upper decks. Fires were lighted ou
the bauk overlooking the river, petroleum
torches weie brought, and the search was
continued until night.
Later report show that the loss of life is
still greater than was expected, as 238
bodies have already been recovered.
St. JosErn,Mo., May 24. An explosion
of 15 barrels of Danforth's fluid, stored in a
cellar occurred at 0 o'clock last night. The
floor over the cellar was occupied as a sa
loon aud billiard room was kept by a col
ored man. . A number of negroes were in
the saloou at the time, all oC whom lost
their lives. The exact number canuot be
ascertained as yet, but it is variously esti
mated at from fifteen to forty-five. Five
bodies have been recovered up to this time,
all burr.ed beyond recognition. It is said
that one white woman was in the place at
the time of the casualty. The building
was instantly and completely demolished.
The inmates were all buried in the debris,
which was completely enveloped by the hot
flame of the burning fluid. The efforts of
the fire department to subdue the flames
were of uo avail. Several thousand excited
persons surrounded the scene of tbe
disaster, and women and children screamed
and bewailed the loss of their husbands
and fathers or friends. The concussion
shook the buildings several blocks around.
A War Relic.
In a very full report recently published
in the Philadelphia Ledger, reference is
. made to the case of Mr. George I. Graham,
a prominent politician and active journal
ist, (oounected with the Philadelphia Sun.
day Mirror), who, by using the great Ger
man remedy, St. Jacob's Oil, was cured of
a troublesome case of rheumatism, con
tracted during the war. He closes his
statement with "to those who are afflict
ed with that complaint, it is worth its
weight in gold." Louu Globe-Demo-crat.
