TRAGEDIES OF NIAGARA. PSATH OF CHARLES ADDINGTON AND EVA DS FORREST. Thrilling Experience of an Unknown Victim in 1864-A Man Who Has a Dread of a Similar Fate for Himself. Harrisburg (Pc r.' Letter in Xew York Sun. “I am going to Niagara Falls,” said a passenger on a Pennsylvania railroad train from Philadelphia yesterday, ‘‘and if yen read in the papers in a day or so that some person, known or unknown, has been car ried over the falls, you may be sure that 1 have reached my destination. No; it won't be me —not if l can help it. But I have never been to Niagara yet that someone did not go over the falls, either inten tionally or accidentally, and nothing but a positive and important business engage ment, such as compels me to go there now, rould induce me to visit, the spot which is associated in my mind with three terrible tragedies. I was a horrified spectator of two most heart-rending Niagara tragedies, and on my third visit to the falls the other was enacted. I have been for six weeks Irving to avoid this fourth trip, for my recollections of Niagara are sufficiently un pleasant without having a fourth one tc be n perpetual shudder to me. "My first visit to Niagara was in the summer of 1858, and I had been there not snore than ati hour when I witnessed the agonizing scene of a young man and a beau tiful fair-haired child swept away by the swift current of Goat Island ana dashed over the falls. The young man was Charles Addington, and the child was little Eva De Forrest. The Addingtons and Do Forrests were prominent Buffalo families. Young X barles Addington was engaged to bo mar ried to Ada De Forrest. The day that 1 paid my first visit to Niagara Mrs. tie For rest, Ada and her little sister Eva, and young Addington had come from Buffalo for a day's outing at the falls. They pic nicked on Goat Island, and little Eva having strayed away from the group her mother sent'young Addington to find her and fetch her back. He discovered her not far away, standing on the shore, looking at the swift water. Thoughtlessly stealing up behind her, he grasped the child under the arms and, lifting her up, held her out over the water. She threw up her arms and slipped from his hands into the river. Addington sprang in and caught her before she had been carried into the swift water. He suc ceeded, after a desperate struggle, in get ting back near enough to the shore to throw the child on the bank. She had not suffi cient strength to hold on until her mother could grasp her, and pull her to a safe place, and fell back into the current. Addington again seized her, but he was too much ex hausted to make way against the swift wa ter. and the two were carried into the rap ids and disappeared together over the falls. I was on Goat island and saw the whole oc currence. "In the summer of 1884 I again visited Niagara Falls. I arrived there at night, and early next morning I walked over to Goat Island, and looking down the Ameri can rapids what should I see but a man clinging to an old tree trunk that hod lodged at some time in the current between the small islands off Goat Island and the Ameri can shore. Before I could give the alarm the man had been discovered by othei-s, and the news spread rapidly. Who the man was or how he came to be in this perilous situa tion no one ever knew, hut it was supposed that he had been rowing across the river somewhere above the night before, and, losing control of his boat, had been swept down into the rapids, and the boat striking t he trunk, he had by some miracle gained a foothold upon it. ‘‘As soon as possible after the discovery >f the man was made word was telegraphed to Buffalo, and a party of life savers on me on a special train to the Falls to try and rescue him. Before 10 o’clock thousands of persons were gathered at every available spot where a sight of the unfortunate man could be obtained. The railroads ran special trains, and people came in convey ances of all kinds from the surrounding country. No one seemed at first to know how to go to work to be of aid to the man, but he dung to the tree, watching every movement that was made—how anxiously he watched may be imagined. It was of course impossible to make him hear anything that might be shouted to him, and there was no way to give him any directions. Finally a life boat was attached to a cable and let down the rapids from the bridge toward him. Guide ropes were tied to it, by which it was directed toward the log by men on the shore of the island. The plan was well calculated, and the boat made directly for the spot where the man was hanging between life and d"atb. The assembled multitude began to feel that in a few minutes the poor man would be safely drawn ashore. Suddenly the boat was caught by a swirl of the rapids. The cable partial like a weak kite string. The boat rushed [last, the man like a flash, anil was carried over the falls. “This sail ending to that effort to rescue the man showed the life savers that there was no hope for the man in that plan. Sev eral others were suggested, and finally one was adopted which it took until late in the afternoon to get. in readiness. In all those long hours of suspense I don’t believe one of the spectators moved from his tracks. Everything else about Niagara Falls was forgotten except the temble scene of a i'el lovv-being hanging on the verge of death and patiently awaiting the success or fail ure of the efforts that were being made to rescue him. The plan adopted was to fasten a strong cable securely to the American shore, attach a staunch raft to it, carry the loose end of the cable over to the island, and let it belly down w ith the raft to the tree trunk. By this means it was hoped that the raft, after reaching the log, and the man had crawled upon it, could iie steadily drawn to a small island between the man and Goat Island, from which snißli island his rescue would be easy. Some food and a glass of brandy were floated on the raft, with a rope and writteu instructions to the man as to what was to be done and what he must do. The raft moved down and reached the tree trunk in safety. As the man dropped front his perilous perch upon the raft, lashed himself to it w ith the rope according to instructions, and then eagerly seized the brandy and food, such a shout as went from the thousands of people who had watched the proceedings with beating hearts and bated breath was never heard before. It could he heard above the angrv roar of Niagara. The raft was slowly pulled toward the small island. Everything seemed working ton ■ harm. The tension on the feelings of the spectators was so great that, many fainted away. People were sobbing on every side. Suddenly the raft stopped. The cable, drawn as it was, beneatn the water, nought on some obstruction. All efforts to loosen it were unavailing. One groan of agony arose from the great crowd. The life-savers toiled and tugged ♦at, the rope, but still it idling to the obstruction. It was now near sunset. The man on the raft had unlashed t he ropes that had been his security against, the possibility of his being washed off by the current, and joined his efforts with the others to loosen the rope. Ho was pale, haggard and wild-looking from his hours of suspense. Suddenly he kneeled on the raft, over which the water was sweeping swiftly, and remained there for a moment as if in prayer. Then he sprang into the raging current and pulled bravely for the island, which was only a few feet away. At first he gained visibly against the cur rent, and the thought lhat he would surely save himself found utterance in another joyful sbont from the spectators. But when he was almost within reach of the shore his strength began to fail. The space between him and the island gradually widened. Then every one knew that all hope was gone. He made a few more desperate strokes, but the wild waters seized him and pitching and tossing and whirling him, hur ried him to the brink of the great cataract. When he reached the edge ot the falls he was thrown upward from the water until his whole length came into view standing upright, and he disappeared as if be had made a voluntary leap over the precipice. A\ bile he was being dashed to and over the falls not a sound was uttered by one in that vast crowd of horror-stricken spectators, and, terrible as was the scene, not an eye was turned away from him as he was car ried along to his destruction. The moment he disappeared in the face of the cataract one heartrending shriek went up from the crowd, and, the fascination of the scene be ing broken, the spectators fled from it as if from some frightful pursuer. The poor vic tim’s body was never found nor was his iden tity ever established. As on my previous visit to the falls, the place had no longer any at traction for me, and the first train carried me away. “In the spring of IRB4. twenty years after my second visit, I made up my mind to conquer my aversion to going again to the place which I could scarcely think of with out a shudder, and resolved to make another effort to see the greatest of American nat ural wonders. Although twice on the ground, 1 had not yet seen the tails from be low; in fact, I could not bo said to have seen them at all. Iliad business in Buffalo in April three years ago, and after getting through with it went on to the falls. There was ice there yet, I remember, and, all things else being equal, the place was not particularly cheerful. I made up my mind to go strainght to the Goat Island bridge and brave my feelings by taking a look at the spot where I had seen that doomed man struggling for life twenty years before. I did so and was greatly sur prised to see the old tree trunk to which the man clung for so many hours still rising out of the hoiling and leaning water. I had not been there long when I noticed a great com motion among the people on the island, and in a few minutes learned that not only one but two men had gone over the falls some time during the night before, and that the clothing of one of them had been found, and evidences that one of the men, who were brotliers-in-law, was a murderer and suicide. He had lured his brother-in-law to the island, killed him, thrown his body into the rapids, and then jumped in himself and followed it over the falls. The names of the parties were Vedder and Pearson, t did not wait for more min ute details, but hurried to the Erie milway station ami caught the first train eastward. “Now, as I said, I am making my fourth trip to the falls, this time an enforced one? Do you wonder I am nervous and a tx-ifle sup erstitious about going there? I hope there will lie no fatality connected with this visit, but if vou should read about any one going over Niagara FalLs within the next day or two, you may be certain that lam there.” THE EXILED FRENCHMAN. Max O’Rell Discusses His Countrymen Away from France. From the Liverpool Courier. A Frenchman out of France is very much like a fish out of water. Of all the Europeau people the French are those who emigrate the least. Their country is large and rich enough to feed them and give them employment, the family ties are very close, tho ambition for great wealth seldom exists, and they prefer living on a snug little income in France to acquiring a large fortune abroad. Not one boy is brought up with a view to being sent abroad when he is grown uo. Most French men whom you meet settled out of France are men whose career was blighted by the political events of the last thirty or forty years. Once domiciled in a foreign land, how ever, the Frenchman soon forms with other exiled compatriots clubs and societies where their characteristics come out in full light; gaiety and good fellowship reign, but tem pered, if one may say so, by the little na tional failings, jealousy ami yearning after elective titles. These societies, we see, are subdivided into sections, committees,'com missions, etc , each having a president, a vice president a treasurer, a secretaire rapporteur, a secretaire archil into, and what not. For that matter you will uover see half a dozen Frenchmen meet round the table for the discussion of anything but a good dinner without appointing one of their number president, another vice president. etc. Earn one must have a title, and if there are six members and only five titles to be dispensed, the one who is left out sends in his resignation and goes about abusing the other five. It seems up to now as if the republic hail failed to make the French peo ple real republicans. Frenchmen when in exile do not allow either pride of birth, education or former position to lie an obstacle in the way of earning a living, if only humble opportuni ties present themselves. Once I was shown an aristocratic looking countryman of mine in a fashionable restaurant in London, wash ing glasses. This plucky Frenchman had taken to glass-washing, for which he earned a shilling a night and his dinner, an attend ant, something more suited to his acquire ment and requirements. Like many others, he had fled his country because he had held a post under the Commune, ami was “wanted” by M. Thiers. If he had the tra ditional half crown in his pocket by the time he reached England it w as as much as he could Insist in hard cash, and so he bravely accepted the work I saw him at. I was not surprised to learn some time ago that he is now manager and partner of one of the large French houses of business es tablished for the sale of French manufac tured goods iu England. If you go to a certain cafe iu Regent street, London, between 12 and 1, you may almost every day see. seated at one of the tables, a tall, thin, gentlemanly Frenchman of about 50. This is no less a personage than the first cook in London. It is said that he makes an income of over £2,000. SIO,OOO a year. This is how he earns his living. In his own brougham he sets out toward evening for the house of some rich man who is going to give a dinner at which every dish must, be above criticism. Here ho alights, and makes for tho kitchen, goes through the process of tasting all the soups, sauces and made dishes, advising, when his palate sug gests, a little more salt here, a pinch of herbs there, a dash of sugar in this entree, a suspicion of onion in that salmis, etc. This done he pockets his fee of two guineas, and drives to the next dinner-giving patron who ha-, bidden him to his feast in this strange fashion. His nightly list comprises many houses all through the London season. A Bone in His Lung. from the Washington Star. CIN'CIWATI, Nov. —On Nor. 13 three years ago Mrs. Winter, wife of George Winter, while eating dinner swallowed a bone about the size of a Navy bean. Phy sicians were sent for, but the case seemed hopeless. Opiates to soothe the dreadful sufferings of tho lady were administered. Though 48 years old she rallied, ami then began a systematic course of treatment. Dr. Zipperlen took the ease in hand, but pronounced it incurable. His diagnosis was that the bone had lodged in the lung, and as its removal was an utter impossibili ty, decay of the lungs must ultimately set in, and death was only a question of time. During all this time Mrs. Winter suffered the severest tortures. Hemorrhages suc ceeded each other in rapid succession. Her coughing spells were continuous, and wasted her from a robust woman to a mere skeleton. Last Sunday an event in the nature of a miracle occurred, as-cord ing to the Enquirer. As usual Mrs. Winter awoke with a terrible spell of coughing fol lowed by a hemorrhage. Suddenly she felt a gradual rising pain on her left side. The tingling pain row higher and higher, until all at once she felt a hard substance emerge from her throat and fill her mouth. Spit ting it out upou the floor, like a revelation it struck her that this was the bone she had swallowed three years ago. A closer exam ination revealed the fact that the hard sub stance was a bone with numerous sharp edges. Dr. Amick was called, and pro nounced the case simply miraculous, and gave the reassuring opinion that the effects of this irritating tenant of the lady’s lung would soon wear away. The cougliing spell has since almost ceased, and, except for the debilitating effect, she is almost restored to health. THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 11, 1887. SPIES’ BROTHER. A Man Who Claims to be Related to the Condemned Anarchist. From the St. Louis Republican. A man about five feet nine inches in height, well built, brown eyes, black mous tache, attired in a dark suit of clothes, dark overcoat and a black slouch hat, walked into the Circle saloon, on the northwest corner of Twelfth street and Chouteau avenue, about (5 o'clock yesterday afternoon and asked fora gloss of beer. Albert Booth, the bar-keeper, brought him the beverage, and it was drank and another ordered by the thirsty customer. One licer followed another until the drinker was more or less under the influence of the beverage and be came quits talkative. His language was in brokeh English, 'and he was evidently more used to speaking in German than any other language. There were several men in the barroom with whom he drank several times and they tried to draw him into i-onversation with thorn, but their efforts were unsuccessful, as none of them could talk in the visitor’s native language. Finally, a tall, well-dressed young man entered the saloon, and as he spoke in German to the bar-kepper, the unknown German refused to let him pay for the drink which had been ordered, but called for one for himself and they drank together. He appeared to take a strange liking to the new comer, for he would often express his private opinion on the manner which the Anarchists were treated in this country. He mentioned the word Anar chist in English and in such a wild and threatening manner that the bar keeper became frightened and told one of the bystanders to run for a police man and have the man taken to the police headquarters. The advocate of anarchy ap peared to know w hut policeman meant, for lie told the barkeeper in broken English that there would be trouble in that saloon if an officer was summoned, for be was well prepared for any emergency. His young companion was the most i-ontrolled one iu the crowd, and he told the frightened saloon man to stop his noise aud attend to his busi ness. When quiet had lieen restored, the strange man took his so-called young friend into a corner, and speaking German, he told the following strange story: “I suppose you are acquainted with the facts concerning the Hayuiarket riot in Chi cago, and of the capture and conviction of the Anarchists. Now these men never had a fair and square trial to begin with. Even if they did it is no reason why they should be hanged like a pack of cowardly curs, in stead of receiving the treatment of gentle men, as they all are—and some of them are soldiers. It was a made-up plot to have these men tried for a crime they never com mitted, and once indicted there was but a very little chance for their lives. When these men were convicted I was thousands of miles from where I am standing now, but I received the sad intelligence by cablegram an hour after the men were sentenced to death. I was personally interested in the trial all the time, and I had men watching everything and every body connected with the prosecution of the Anarchists, in hopes that I would find some way by which the men could be set at lib erty. Much to my dissatisfaction no chance presented itself, for the men in my employ cabled everything to me. Was I discour aged when I received r.o cheerful news? Oh, no; I only waited patiently night after night, entertaining tho thought that 1 would soon get news which would give me cour age. lam the brother of August Spies, and I live in Bolatto, Bvron. Bavaria. That is the reason I have always taken so much in terest in the welfare of the Anarchists. .Spies is not the doomed man’s right name, but that is the uume he told me he was going to go by in this country, and I have received positive information that he is my brother. In Bolatte. myself and niv father are engaged in the brewery business; in fact we have one of the largest breweries in that section of the country, and our busi ness is very extensive through every part of Europe. August (I will call him nv that name) went to i-ollege some distance from our home, when he was quite a young man. When he entered it was his intention to study for the priesthood. He remained at school for some years, but when lie returned home on a vacation he told us that, he had changed his mind and would not study for the priesthood. When ha formed this resolution we could not man age him at all, and he became very wild. He then embarked in the business, which he followed up to the time of his arrest. When tho information was received in Bolat.te it created the greatest consternation among the Anarchists and a meeting was instantly called. The hall where the meeting was held was crowded with people eager to assist their brethren in their distress. We adopted resolutions promising to send assistance in the shape of money, or a large body of men. The ques tion whether we would come over to this country in a large body or not was a sub ject of debate for several months, it was finally decided that we would ga; her together the liest and most influential Anarchists in that pint of the country, and charter steamers and come to this country. We chartered the steamer Friesia and two other large steamers, and left Bavaria about one month ago. Among the number on txoard the steamers, which were crowded, there were three brothers of Herr Most, of New York. I do not care to say how we land.-d, but I will state that t.be men landed at such places and in such numbers that, we escaped t.he surveillance of the jxoliee.” “Where are the nten now?" asked the young man, who had listened attentively. “They are scattered throughout the East, but please do not. interrupt me. 1 came tv> this city last Friday, and was met at the depot by several Anarchists who had not the slightest idea that I was cmiing here. I was put in a carriage and driven to the resi dence of one of the prominent, members of the labor union, and stopped there until this evening, when I slipped quietly away. Myself and the host had an understanding, and he lias agreed to have a thousand Anarchists and sympathizers in Chicago next Friday morning. But I cannot say any more, young man, for 1 must hurry and catch my train,” he said, and moved toward the door. "But I don’t know where the depot is; will you direct nu#toit.;” The young man walked with him toward the depot, and on the way he resumed the story. “We have it all arranged, so that at day light next Friday morning, the active An archists will meet, in the Grueiier-Baum hall. 538 Sixteenth street, and try and come to some understanding whether we will liberate the doomed men by strategy or bloodshed. Sec here,” said the speaker, as be drew from a pocket in his matslecve a small liottle of arsenic, "if all our efforts fail we can pass one of these into each of the doomed men as easy as taking a cigar. We have men on the inside of the jail who dare not fail us.” During their walk they visited several saloons, and the Anarchist was pretty much intoxicated. Finally the young man suc ceeded in putting him on the Chicago and Alton train, and stayed with him until it pulled out at 7:55 o’clock. At Peace. A stomach in revolt is an obdurate rebel. Corrected with Hostet ler's Stomach Bitters, its dissensions with the food introduced into it in unwary moments of appetite ceases. Then it is at peace. Then dyspepsia abandons its grip. Then such fractious manifestations as heart burn, a sinking sensation in the pit of the abdo men between meals and unnatural fullness afterward, flatulence, acid gulpiugs. biliousness, etc., cease to inflict martyrdom. After a course of ihe nations! tonic and alterative, the liver and bowels, always more or less disordered dur ing a prolonged attack of indigestion, resume their functions and become regular. Thus not only dyspepsia, but its concomitants, constipa tion and biliousness, an- conquered by the medi cine. which remedies their fruitful cause, weak ness of the organs o|. digestion. The epigastric nerve, cellular tissue, in short, every organ that bears a part in the digestive processes acquires vigor and regularity from the benign mvig orant.
