Detroit, September S.7. The transfer
boat of the Canada Southern railroad,
carrying the train duo here at 1 o'clock
this morning, was run with such force
against the dock at the island as to cause
the forward sleepor to run oil' the cud of
the boat aud plunge Into the water. The
forward trucks of a passenger car also went
over the end of tho boat aud the car hung
at an angle of forty-five degrees, one eud
just touching the water. As the boat
backed from tho slip the sleeper rose aud
turned over on its side, aud the passengers
inside, out of the water, tried to break
through the windows. Some of those iu
the pasBonger oar clambered out of tho
-window and foil into the water. The pas
congers aud train men clambered on top of
the coach that was floating in the water
and broke open tho windows and pulled
out the dripping occupants. The darkness
of the night, the confusion and the fact
that nearly all the passengers were strau
gors to each other make it possible that all
were rescued, but it leaves a painful uncer
tainty as to whether there Is not several
persons drowned. Six passengers went
down with the car but were rescued with
the exception of a man named Bloom who
occupied seotion eleven. A careful search
of him was made but he had not been fouud
at last accounts.

A Terrifle Explosion.
On Saturday last a car load of gunpow
der, billed as common blasting powder,
reached Couucil Bluffs, la., over the Chi
cago, Bock Island aud Paoiflo, on its way
to Denvor, Col. The Union Pacific Com
pany, however, refused to receive the dan
gerous freight, aud tho car was returned
to the Bock Island yards, where from some
cause it exploded with torritio force on
.Monday eveniug. The concussion demol
ished the company's rouud-houao aud re
pair shops, of brick, and freight bouses of
frame, besides forty or fifty freight cars,
and dug a bole in the ground fifteen feet
deep aud forty-five feet in diameter. Large
windows in all parts of the city were shat
tered to pieces, aud others were even bro
ken by concussion in Omaha, ou tbe
opposite Bide of tho river, aud as far as
Mo. Valley Junction, twenty miles north.
The loss will foot up sevoral hundred
thousand dollars. Richard Van Ilaueven
and bis daughter Nellie were seriously
' injured by the force of the explosion, but
as far as known this morning, no fatalities
occurred. Several persons, however, are
" A Cirl's Choice.
It was in a drug store of course. An
interesting incidouts occur iu drug s tores, -that
is neaily all. She was pretty, with
blue eyes aud golden hair, one of those
liiod of beauties the poet would have called
an "angel," but for the fact that a colony
of pimples on her fair frontispiece preclud
ed all thought of a celestial being. Bow
ing timidly to the handsome clerk, she
asked for "Sway tie's Ointment for skin
deseases," and upon receiving it vanished
like the morning dew before the Summer
A Curious Run Off.
A singular railroad accideut occurred nt
Cornwall aud Holmesburg on Sunday. An
engine standing on the track was struck by
an approaching train witb such force that
the throttle was jarred open. There was
no ono on board, and the engine darted off
with lightning like rapidity. Orders were
telegraphed to Holmesburg to open the
switch, but by some moans unknown tho
mounter passed safely over and In a few
seconds daihed Into a freight train, ending
its wild caieer In the destruction of a
r.umhor of cars along with Its own demo
