In the still summer afternoon,
And f'om the stuccoed front of su
Reflected sunbeam* glare and glow,
And with their heavy breath Is blent
Odor of flower* on boughs still bent
With yeilms ■ -
Upon the drowsy spirit tails.
A faith outworn, a work decayed,

An old Franciscan wanders by
With sandalled feet and long gray gown,
His head Is droopihg pensively*
But in his dark and steady eye
There Hcb a slumbering energy
Which, waked, could win a world’s reuown.
Why should this Casear’sHUd eyes
Guard a few stolid Indians fate?
Barely his spirit in him cries
To burst its chafing bond and rise—
Pants for the straggle and the prize
That crowns the strong and paUent great.
Why moulder ’mid the mouldering dead
Pour down euch peace on that gray head
That he finds sweet the bitter bread
Of strangers in a foreign land?
It mast be that he reads the thought,
He stops his walk and with a smile
He speaks: *'My son, our fight is fought
With many arms. If good be wrought
To the great cause It matters naught
Where we may post the rank and file.
"In Orient old; in State* yet new,
In crowded towns; where far and few
The settler*’ rough-hewn cabins stand;
On Arctic ice or tropic sand
Where Holy Church has work to do
God’s servants find their native land.”
LOST IN LAKE MICHIGAN.
Nine Men Find Watery Craves Within a
Mlie ot the Shore,
Chicago, October 8.—This morning
about 7 o'clock an accident occurred at
the temporary crib of the Hydo Park
water-works which resulted in the loss of
nine lives. For some time past a gang oi
fourteen men have been engaged upon the
new crib that is being constructed for the
water-works, about a mile from Chelten
ham beach. At the mouth of the tun
nel, which leads to the shore and above
the crib, had been constructed a large
platform, about forty feet square, sup
ported by pole*, which were bound together
by heavy chains. Upon this platform bad
Men built a small cabin, in which the men
slept and had their meals, they having
lived there for the past three weeks. The
platform was supported by heavy timbers
resting on the piles.
This morning, about 5 o'clock, the sea
became so heavy that portions of the plat
form were washed away. The men awoke
about 5:30 o'clock, and found spray with
every wave washing the sides of their hnt.
They were not much alarmed, and pro
ceeded to get their breakfast. The meal
was eaten aod preparations made for the
day's work. The aea, in the meantime,
ran higher, and, about 7 o’clock, a hu^e
wave struck the but, tearing it from its
foundations and carrying it into the raging
Then followed a scene of the most har
rowing description. Fourteen men were
straggling in ihe.debria of the building,
and. In a short time, not a vestige of the
wreck was visible. Twelve of the men
succeeded in climbing upon the huge
stringers that held the poles together, and.
'ingfaco down, with their arms around
__ie beam, they waited the arrival of assist
ance. Every moment-increased their dan
ger. and the waves, with terrible force, tore
them one by one from the timbers until
only eight remained. These, within sight
of the assistance that was coming in the
shape of the-life-saving crew of Chicago,
clung with bleeding bands and waited.
In the meantime on shore everthing was
being done for their rescue. The crew of
the Chicago life-saving station had put off
and made for the scene of the accident.
They arrived about 11 o’clock, and when
in throwing distance, a line was made
fast by the almost drowning men, to the
timbers and made tight from the boat.
Then each shivering man, with uncertain
grasp, clutched the rope and band over
hand worked his way toward the boat
through the surf.
Out of eight men who made the attempt
only four lived to tell the tale of the terri
ble hours thet they had spent on the
spars. The boat, which was then about a
mile from shore, gave way and in twenty
minutes was landed safe on tha shore,
where hundreds of people awaited the res
Those who were drowned were: Corbyn,
P., contractor; Ertin. William.laborer;

THE COOK'S ITOBY.
When the lifeboat drew near the shore a
crowd of men rushed into the water and al
most lifted the craft npon the sand. The
cook, Peter Thies, who was the
least affected by the intense cold
and .exposure, told the following
graphic story: "This rooming about
5 o'clock I got up to get breakfast for
the fourteen men who constituted the par
ty. After the meal was prepared we sat
down to eat Before this I noticed thel
sea was running at a terrible rate, but
none of us dreamed of the terrible thing
that was to befall us before long. The
meal finished, l went into a backroom,
which was partitioned off, and began wash
ing dishes. It was then about 7 o'clock. I
had finished my work and was just about
to go out when I heard a loud crack, and i
in a moment the building In which I stood
careened and I was in the water snrronnd-
ed by companions, who straggled to free
themselves from the timbers. * •
"I climbed npon one of the stringers and
hsiptd to get several others out. Then
began a scene which I hope never to see
again. Every wave that came struck us
with such force that the flesh was torn
from our hands, and we saw several of the
poor men yield to the terrible power and[
lose their hold. When we first reached
the water, Bosses Hean and Oorbyn
grasped a large timber and WOTS washed
away. They may have reached th« shorel
in safety. When we first 81W the lifeboat

Hans Christianson, one of the survivors,
toldihe story of the terrible night as he
sat toastlcg his feet in the kitchen
of the engineer's house. He
said: “When the storm came up
we had no fear for our safety, but when
the storm increased we began to think wo
were doomed. About daylight, when the
waves were rolling against the sides of the
shanty, we loft, and had but just got out

best we could, but it was hard work after
Hean and Corbyn were carried oil. Twice
the waves took me oil, but I hung on to

It is reported to-night that Klaus Claw-
ren, laborer, was rescued. He had clang
to a timber and was driven Eehore near
Eolith Chicago. None of the bodies of the
drowned man have been recovered. The
men who were rescued say that the struct
ure was not considered safe and they had
protested against staying there over night,
but they had been assured that it was per
fectly secure and that the water would
never reach it.

be our next President. My husband and
also tbe husbands of my companions are

they are. So when we received iuvitatloui
lrom Mrs. Brady we planned to carry the

Gov. Cleveland ior tha Presidency. Our
cheering for Cleveland was so boisterous,
however, that while we captured tbe meet

because Mrs. Brady attacked us with an
old pump handle and we fled for cur lives.

Tut title “your Honor,” applied to
American judges, has been adopted in
England by royal proclamation as the title
of address applicable to country judges,
who hitherto were neither lordships nor
as it was in Jesse James’s rime. A burglar
found more than his match in a St. Louis
man. On entering a house be was knocked
down, robbed of his watch, money and line

A telegram received at the Navy
Department, from Lieutenant-Commander
Hitchcock, says that the wreck of the
Tallapoosa hat been towed three quarters
of a mile further in toward Edgartoo light,
where her stern hss grounded in six and

Much interest has recently been ex
cited In English engineering circles by the
announcement of the discovery of anew
motive pow* r by Mr. Edwin Si urge, who
has patented the means of application. Ac
cording to report, the new motive power
threatens to displace steam as the motive
power for driving light machinery and for.
all purposes of light locomotion, either on
land or water. Arrangements are in prog
ress to give the invention a public test.
It is estimated that there are about
100.000 Quakers in toe United 8tates, and
perhaps as many more scattered over the
balance of the world. The modern Qua
ker, however, is different from the old-
time one. He sings and prays in church,
has Sunday-schools, attends Methodist
camp-meetings and takes part in them.
This is not as it used to be.
At tlio Virginia State fair at Rich

shown under a mammoth tent, 40 by GO

itor will show eighteen cases of living bees,
representing twelve species or varieties,
with their queens and proteny. In addi
tion, one ot the latest and heat systems c.f
nueen breeding will be fully demonstrated
and ex; lained. In fact, the display will be
a model spiarv, conducted on scientific
principles by one of America's bee-keepers,
who hns spent over thirty years in the
study of the bee.
Tiik Methodists in the Channel
Islands have just celebrated their one hun
dredth anniversary. At the conference
in 17S4, Mr. Wesley appointed Robert Carr
Brackenbnry to labor in Jersey, and to
him belongs tbe honor of introducing
Methodism inthe-e regions. The work
soon spread to the whole archipelago.
Mr. Breckenburv is succeeded by sixteen
itinerants and about seventy local preach
ers. Jersey numbers 1,722 members,
Guernsey 1.727, and Alderney 120-a total
of 3,5G0. The islands have 51 Methodist
chapels, valued at £30 000 ; 43 Sunday
schools, over 5,000 s liolars, upwards of
1,300 teachers, and two excellent day
schools with 300 pupils.
A novel feature of the recent i nter-
national conference of the Red Cross at
Geneva, Switzerland, was the presentation
at night of a sham battlefie'd. It was lit
by electric light. A hundred or more g
nasts represented the dead and woun*
and a number of trained firemen went
about with lanterns and rafreriimonts Jo
aid the wounded, while qthers removed
the dead. “The eilect," says an account,
“at times was ghastly real, to which the
peculiarity of the electric light largely con
tributed—heightened as was the scene by
the occasional moan of wounded, cries of
heip, the slow, measured walk of the ambu
lance horses and the suppressed manner in
which directions were given by the large
corps of the volunteer physicians, who
personated tbe military surgeons on a bat
tlefield, and one < r more of which acconi
panied each ambulance section."
Chimes, and How They nrs Rung.
Bella may be rung in two ways; first, by
swinging them with rope and wheel; and
secondly, by striking them either on tbe
outside or inside with hammers, the bell
itself being stationary. In England the
former method of rope and wheel was
almost universally adopted, requirine a
man for each bell. From this method we
got the interesting and peculiarly English
kind of chime music known as the
“change*,” which gave England the name
of the Ringing Island. In Belgium, how.
ever, the stationary method was used.
Chimes plsyed in this manner were rung
by one person and were called carillons,
because the Italian quadrigllo, or quad
rille, “a dreary kind of dance music."
was the first ever played upon them. To
play upon carillons the performers used an
instrument known as the “clavecin,’’ a
kind of rough key board arranged in sem-
itoues. .Each key was connected by wire
or rope with a hammer, which struck the
bell when a sharp blow was given the key
with a gloved fist. This machine was
necessarily extremely crude at first; and
since chimes have never been play-d bait
so well as in tbe days of this invention, it
is all the greater wonder that the art ever
progress' d at all. Recently some great
muster-pieces in chime music have bn
lound, which were composed and play*
at Louvain in the latter half of the last
cent ary, by the most skillful and wonder
ful chiller who ever lived, Matthias van
den Glieyn. No one in Europe or Ameri
ca can now be foutul who is able to play
this music, which rivals in the depth nn’i
subtlety of its composition some of the
finest work of Bach, Mozart, or Beetho
ven. Hence the inference is that the art
of playing carillons has sadly declined,
witn small prospect of recovering the lost

Effect on New York ot the Possible Re
sult in Ohio.
New York, October 9.—The Democratic
managers at tbe national headquarters
here do not attempt to disguise- me'fact •
that Ohio is very npt to go Republican
next Tuesday. They do not forget that in
thirty elections it lias gone Republican
twenty-four times. The leaders are now
discussing tue probable results of a Repub
lican victory. It is conceded that if the
majority against the Democratic party is
swelled to over 15,000, redoubled energy
will be needed when the lighting ground is
transferred to this State, but tho idea that
New York can be possibly cudangcred by
whatever occurs on Tuesday next is not
for a moment seriously entertained.
One of the Ohio campaign committee
writes that the best the Democrats could
hope to do there now was to keep the Re
S udlican majority down. He said thatthe
ctober election would afford no infallible
indication of what would happen in No
vember; that local Is-ues were being bit
terly fought out, and that when it came to
a choice between the national tickets a very
different story would be told. There is
