MURPHY’S STRANGE TRIP.
h , 3 waives Down Worth Street and
Finds Himself in New Orleans.
From the New York Sun.
Joseph B. Murphy, a young Yorkville
saliKW keeper, disappeared from his home,
OU Fast Seventy-seventh street, on Sept. 30.
After he had been missing for several days
lii> friends visited the morgue and left a
photograph °£ him. It represented Murphy
a- a supple young man in a bathing suit.
•\-sistant Keeper Joe Fogarty took down
Murphy’s description as 28 years old, 5 feet
7 inches tail, sandy moustache and light
brown hair. Other photographs of Murphy
cre distributed at the morgues at Bay
Hinge. Brooklyn, Long Island City, White
stone, Jersey City’ and Hoboken. Murphy’s
friends expected that his body would be
yielded Up by' the water, for the reason that
jje went in swimming a good deal, often
making a long expedition in the water.
I lie other day Murphy surprised Joe
Fogarty by walking into the morgue and
asking for his photograph. The explanation
Murphy gave for his absence is a curious
story, best told by Murphy himself:
•On Tuesday, Sept. 30,” he said yesterday,
■ left my saloon, at Second avenue and
Seventy-seventh stree, a few doors from
inv house, and called at the Board of Excise
t, ee about having my license renewed. I
made an appointment w ith the clerk, who
lives up my way, to meet him at my saloon
at 0 o’clock that evening and give bond
there. At about 2p. m. f was standing on
the .northwest corner of Broadway and
Iwonard street thinking about whether I
would avail my'self that afternoon of an
invitation I had in my pocket front
the Henderson Brothers to inspect the This
tle. While I stood there an empty truck,
drawn by two horses, rounded the curb into
],eonard street. I stood so close to the curb
that an iron rung that sat loosely in the tail
end of the truck, and pointed outward, hit
me ou the left side of the forehead as the
truck wheeled by. The blow somewhat
stunned me, and I fell over against a young
woman whe was waiting to cross the street.
J felt some pain in my head, but was not
much annoyed by the hurt. I walked down
Broadway to Worth street, and stopped
there awhile to talk about the accident to
my friend Joe O’Toole, who straps packages
for Tefft, Weller & Cos. We crossed over
to the northeast corner of Broadway and
Worth street and had drinks in there. I
took a whisky. It was the second
drink I had taken that day—
both whiskeys. But I did not feel the
effect of the Uquor in the slightest. After
leaving O’Toole I walked east in Worth
street. I think it was then about 3p. m. I
remember arriving at Baxter street, but
here I lost all track of myself. What hap
pened to me during tive days is a blank. I
woke up on the evening of ‘Oct. 4 and found
myself in the City Hospital in New Or
leans. I began to talk, but my male nurse
made me keep quiet. I soon fell asleep
again, and woke up the next morning feel
ing that my head was freezing. I found
that ice was packed around my head. That
day 1 began to feel like myself, and was
(old that I was well enough to leave the
hospital. They said I had been sent to them
from a police court, where I had been
arraigned for drunkenness, but the
Judge had said that I was not intoxi
cated, but appeared to be drugged, and
needed medical treatment. My hip was
bruised, and I had a faint recollection of
being clubbed by a policeman. I had left
home with $lB7, but there was not a cent in
my clothing. My ring was not on my finger.
The single article in my pocket was a key
ring. I told my story to the hospital au
thorities, but they seemed to discredit it, I
suppose because I looked so shabby. They
told me that I had been sick with conges
tion of the brain. I made my way to the
docks and looked for a chance to work my
passage to New York on a steamer. None
would sail for two days, and as I was with
out a cent I coul<ji not afford to wait. I got
a chance to unload freight from a river boat
going to St. Louis, and sailed that night.
My fellow workmen were four negroes. I
had put myself on their level, and they
tried to put me lower still. At Arkansas
City they tried to kill me by dropping a box
on me, but I was took quick for them. We
were five days making the trip. At St.
Louis I was paid $lO. The negroes got S2O
each. I broke my $lO bill buying a postage
stamp, with which I mailed to my wife a
letter I had written on the boat. ” Then I
went to a hotel. That night I was taken
sick. My head was dizzy, and the hard
ships of the voyage had used me up. In a
few days I had a letter from my wife. It
contained both good and bad news. It said
we had a baby, and that my saloon had
been sold out to satisfy a creditor, whom I
owed $Bl. I was pretty sick in St. Louis,
but ou Sept. 10 1 felt well enough to leave.
Ttie motion of the cars made havoc
with my still dizzy head, and I had
to return very slowly, making stops at
Weedsport, Cincinnati, Buffalo, Cairo, and
Jamesport. I arrived home a week ago
last Thursday. lam better now, but I still
feel occasionally a ringing sound in my
head where I was struck by the rung. Now
and then the bones seem to click together.
My physician, Dr. Robert F. Chapman of
East One Hundred and Sixteenth street, is
giving me medicine, and he says that when
I get cured 1 will recollect all of my adven
ture. He explains that the blow I received
caused blood to congeal in my head, and I
did the thing that was ou my
mind at the moment. He thinks
that at the moment I lost conscious
ness New Orleans was either in my thoughts
or I saw New Orleans displayed on a
sign board at which I happened to be look
A PRINCE IN DISGUISE.
A Detroit Man Finds That He Is Right
fully an Italian Nobleman.
From the Philadelphia Press.
Detroit, Oct. 1. —Arthur J. Barnes, 47
years old, a Methodist churchman in good
standing and a reputable gentleman, has
caused a sensation by a curious story which
iie made public to-day. Ho has lived in De
troit for twenty-five years, and is a man of
swarthy complexion,tall and angular, black
side whiskers and hair slightly silvered, and
looks much like au Italian, which ho says
“Until IwasSl years old,” said Mr. Barnes,
“I thought I was the son of the Englishman
aud woman who hail brought me up. Then
they thought proper to tell me vvlio.l was.
It is from their accounts, verified by his
torical data and circumstances occurring ou
the trip I very recently made to Italy, that
I made up my biography.” Mr. Barnes
says that he is Lucian I lament Camesia,
son of the Prince of that name living in
Italy in 183*5. Italy was then torn asunder
by internal and external discord. His uncle,
Mazzini, was the recognized head of the
party known as “Young Italy” until Gari
baldi succeeded him. In 1832 Barnes’
father was made prisoner by conspirators,
who beheaded him just six months
before young Carnesia’s birth. This took
place ou shipboard on the British war
ship Halcyon, to which his mother had es
caped, aud where during an engagement
she was hit by a shell and killed. The child
was taken to England and adopted by a
family named Burret, who were paid X. 50
a year for his care. The Burrets went to
Australia, wore shipwrecked and cast on a
small island, taken off in an American
whaler and landed at Prince Edward’s
Island. The Burrets then settled in Mon
treal. Thence they went to California and
later to Cuba 'The "overland train to the
Pacific win attacked by Indians, who were
beaten off, and another shipwreck occurred
on the voyage to Cuba.
This family finally located in Toronto,
Ont., where young Carnesia was told the
story of his birth, lie married in Toronto
and caiueto Detroit, taking the name of
Barnes. He recently thought ho would in
vestigate the storv of his parentage, and
went to Italy, where lie proved his iden
tity, but, prof erring to live here, he re

Their Adaptability to AH Climates and
It has frequently been remarked, says the
Jeicish World, that the Jewish raco has a
wonderful power of adaptation to all cli
mates. Jews are found in all parts of the
globe, and seem to possess a remarkable fac
ulty for acclimatization, even under the
most unfavorable circumstances. Mesopo
tamia is considered the mother coun
try of the Abrahamic family', as well
as the cradle of the human race Some
years ago a small colony of Jews were found
in the ancient city of Sennar, in the south
of Mesopotamia, and in the vicinity of
ancient Babylon. Of the seventy families
composing the colony, one claimed to be
descended from King Joachim, the rest
from the house of Levi. A colony of Jews
appear to have settled in China about the
beginning ot the third century of the Chris
tian era, under the dynasty of Han. In
1704, Father Gouzani, a Roman Catholic
missionary, found seven Jewish families
In 11580 a Portuguese Jew of Amsterdam,
named DePavia, discovered a sect of Jews
in Cochin, China. According to a tradition
preserved among them, they were descended
from a tribe of Jews who bait quitted
Palestine on the destruction of the second
temple. From their long residence in
Cochin they had becomo completely
bronzed. These are not the same as the
Malabar Jews. The Jewish traveler, Ben
jamin, sometimes called Benjamin the Sec
ond, discovered a colony of jews, evidently
of Persian origin, in Hindoostan. They
were known as “Babylonian Jews,” on
account of their having migrated from
Babylonia. They observed the essential
rites of Judaism, and strictly avoided inter
marriage with other sects. In the begin
ning of the seventeenth century a Jewish
colony settled in Cayenne, in the West
Indies, one of the most inhospitable cli
mates in South America.
Cayenne was subsequently conquered by
the French, who made a penal settlement,
and the Jewish colony was forced to retire
to Surinam. Notwithstanding frequent
persecutions Jews are still found in Persia,
more especially to the south of the Caspian
sea, where the soil is very fertile, but the
climate very unhealthy. The principal city
is Balprosh, where about 150 Jewish families
reside in almost complete isolation. They
trade with their brethren in Great Tartary,
and are engaged in the wool and silk trade,
or In the sale of citrons. They', too, trace
their origin to the Babylonian captivity,
for, according to a tradition still possess**!
among them, their ancestors settled in Per
sia in the time of Nebuchadnezzer, and did
not respond to the appeal of Ezra to return
to Palestine. Their mode of life resembles
that of the Persians in general. They
hold tho beard in high esteem
and woar long flowing robes. They have
several synagogues and obtain scrolls of the
law from Bagdad. The celebrated African
traveler, Mungo Park, found a colony of
Jewish families in the heart of Africa, about
800 miles from the coast. It is, no doubt,
this peculiarity of the Jewish race which in
duced a French writer on “Medical Geogra
phy” to express the opinion that “it is ques
tionable whether the crossing of human
varieties confers on the issue constant ad
vantages in relation to the species, for the
Jewish race seems in a wonderful manner
capable of adapting itself to every change
of climate, while others are scarcely able to
bear the least change.”
The Jew is found in every part of the
world; in Europe, from Norway to Gibral
tar; in Africa, from Algiers to the Cape of
Good Hope; in Asia, from Cochin to Cau
casus; from Jaffa to Pekin. He has peo
pled Australia, and has given proof of his
jiowers of acclimatization under the tropics,
where people of European origin have con
stantly faffed to perpetuate themselves.
The Greatest Woman in the Country.
From the Files (Mich.) Democrat.
Some weeks since we promised, if possible,
to obtain an account of the work done by
one of our Michigan ladies in one y'ear.
This lady is Mrs. Catherine Carberry and
the record from fall of 1885 to fall of 1886 is
substantially as follews, in her own concise
language: “Shelled fifty-five bushels of
corn and put it in the bin. Got home 6,300
pounds of coal aud put it in the bin.
Trimmed eighty rods ot fence and burned
most of the brush. Sheared eight sheep.
Dropped eleven acres of corn and helped
cover it. Worked three acres of corn,
plowed it five times, and hoed it once.
Topped it and hauled the fodder to the barn.
Snapped tho corn and took it to the barn,
where my hnsband, 86 years aid, husked it.
It made 105 bushels in tho ear I gathered
my pumpkins and dug my potatoes and got
fifteen cords of wood in the shed and piled it
up. Gathered my apples and put thorn in
the cellar. Took my cider apples to the
mill and brought back five barrels of cider.
Took one load to the eider mill and sold
them. 1 spaded up the ground and planted
aud worked my garden. Moved twenty
rods of rail fence and helped move twenty
“I cut and made my husband one coat, and
cut and made a vest and pants and four
shirts, and hemmed three pocket handker
chiefs for him. Made myself six dresses
(three nice ones and three common ones),
nine aprons, one polonaise, eight pair of
pillow-cases, four sheets and hemmed
“There are 223 pages in the old testament,
and I read 619 pages, besides religious and
other pa pel’s, and kept a diary of the
weather and my work, and an account of
what we bought and sold, with day aud

my stock—three horses, three head of cattle,
eight sheep and fifty hens —aud raised a pet
Mrs. Carberry is 64 years of age and
weighs but 25 pounds. She retires each
night at 10 o’clock and rises at 4 o’clock each
morning, and takes no naps between times.
In addition to the above, the lady has
taken care of au invalid husband and done
many things unmentioned in this account,
and among them wo may mention that she
has taken and paid for in advance the local
papers, and has honorably paid every cent
for everything she has bought.
This is a woman's work, and the story is
sufficiently commendable to make many a
man blush for shame. Few there are who
have so fully followed the admonition,
“Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.”
An Irishman Mistakes Methodist Class
Meeting for a Maas Meeting.
From the Colonel.
The old style of Methodist class meetings
has not exactly gone into “innocuous desue
tude” in Texas, but it is not as prevalent ns
it was in “olden times.” Then you would
find one going on every Sunday morning,
and every school house or church iu each
small town, city, hamlet or neighborhood
had its class meeting, or “experience meet
in’,” as thev were more frequently called.
And the habit of getting together and tell
ing each other of their shortcomings, aud
of their trials and temptations and
general moral life had a good effect
and seemed to make every one bettor,
and encourage them, and show them
that there were others that sympathized
with them in every trial and rejoiced with
them in triumph. One morning, not tar
from where stands the flourishing town of
Kyle, a strolling Irishman found himself
seated in a little slr d-roof house listening
to the experience of a lot of the faithful.
Of course Mike was astonished and listened
alone in shunt wonder, t ill a young brother
got up, who was rather bashful, aud began:
“I have married me a wife, brethren,
“Tho divil he have!” said Mike, which
caused a momentary titter; but the young
brother recovered and continued:
“I’ve married me a wife and I am glad to
say she is a daughter of the Lord. ”
Mike could stand no more. He shouted:
“Arrah! sit down, ye galoot! Sure, ye'll
niver see voua father-in-law.”
Amid a roar .’like was put out. He took
it for a political meeting.
