Tee performance was given on the ground Poor of the large barn of George Carter. situated on West street. When the mammoth doors were thrown open there la as as large a proscenium as many a small theatre possesses. The large audience was seated upon the lawn under the shade trees and viewed the performance with much pleasure. Not a little of the Original "business" of the piece was done. while there were some rather startling innovations. The barn. or that part of it utilized as a stage. w as well decorated with Japahose emblems. The little ones were costumed in oriental garb. The hit was so pronounced and the demand so loud for a repetition that it will have to lie given again. Master Arthur Stearns of Brooklyn, who had seen the "Mikado" several times.and who is visiting in town, was secured to act as stage man-aver during the performance.

How Aaron Beaman of Holbrook Claims He Can Lift Himself "Wan a Little Aid"His Perpetual Motion Machine. HoLBROOK. Mass., July 9. -of understand that you have nearly perfected a machine whereby perpetual motion is attained," remarked a GLOBE reporter recently at the house of a well-known resident of this town 'Would you mind telling me a little about it?" The person eddressed was Aaron Beaman of Holbrook, who lives on South Franklin streeta man who has excited a great deal of curissity by what Eeems to everv one but himself to las his chimera l idea that he can capture the most deeply-hidden secret laf nature, If she has such a mie, and make her do what she never has 'done yet. After some persuasion Mr. Beaman said that he a as willing to talk of himself and his inven- ton; and it will be seen that his "great discovery" has made the course of his life not a little interesting. "I tom willing to task with any one who shows an interest in machinery," he seaSan. 'I b Ave a machine, and I am sure that it is constructeit on principles different front any now known. I have not given my full time and attention to it: but if I had I would have ha L it done long before this. Wks far as myself is concerned, I was born in Northboro. Worcester county, in June, 1805; therefore I was 81 years of age in ;lune. I removed from there In 1826, and. with an exception of four years. have resided in this town. My wile died April 4, 18s3. Just after her death, my children got frightened and said I would spend my money for naught, end I was summoned to appear at Probate Court to be held at Middleboro on the last week in April, 1884, to show cause, if I had anY,whlt I should not be Placed under guardianship, as a person insane on the subject of perpetual motion. My son and daugliter, Augustus and Sarah 'Seaman, testified that I had spent a good deal of time and 8000 in money to build a water-power cusine, winch I expected woule produce twicethe power that would be required to carry the same, and that I talked of selling my real estate to raise money to coutinue my ta ork until I could find somebody to come to my assistance. which I acknowledge to be mainly correct. The judge then gave me permission to he heard. I told him that this opposition to perpetual motion arose from erroneous rules iaid down in natural Philosophy and taught to our children. until the whole community were led ast ay by them. For example, Quackenbos. in Ins natural philosophy, tells us that we can do more work wish a in chine in the same time than we c n do with our hands alone. He says machines merely aid power in its action; they cannot create power. The mightiest engine, .therefore, remains at rest until acted upon by some motive power, and, when thus aa led on, it cannot increase the Power in the least degree, but, on the other hand, diminisnes it more or less, at-cording. to the friction of its parts, and he illustrates in this way: Wf a man standing over a Pit Ion feet deep can in the space of a minute just oull to the top a tub sontaming 100 pounds of coal, no machine can enable him to raise a single pound more in the same time By using pulleys he may raise Goo, 800 or 1000 pounds at a time. but it will take him six, eight or ten times as long as before, and. therefore. in the saute time, he will do no more than with his handsalone, but less, on account of the friction of the pulleys; and, finally he saes. under no circumstances can there be a gain in units of work without a corresponding loss of time. or a gain in time without a corresponding loss of units of work. tience perpetual motion is impossible. And so I say it would he if this was correct, but it is not correct. as I can show with machinery in practical operation all around us. Two men with a derrick can do more work in less time than thirty can tio by hand." Mr. Beaman next described a train fit wheels and Pinions. such as clocks and watches contained. and said that a one-day clock had a snort train and a three-pound weight, which he couid raise with a limber brush by turning the escape wheels backwards. An eight-day clock, he said, has a longer train and seveispeund mend-in whieh the same brush will raise, and by cutting off one inch of the brush the second inch would be firm enough to wind nearly the longest clock made. "This is to show you," said Mr. Beaman.' -that as A-cry - little 'Power with ulnchinvrt will produce very much pawer. Quackenbos. in reconstructing his late edition of natural philosophy. tells us he Ilas corrected several errors that had unfortunately crept into works of this kind. and I claim the same right to correct those he has left in. I expect that when my machine is completed it will be powerful enough to take the place of a pair of horses on a horse railroad. saw wood and pump water, and to do general work. There has been a man from the patent office at Washington to see my machine. Esquire White asked me if I expected I could lat myself by my boot-straps, and I told hum there was no trouble in a man raising himself up by Pulling upon his boot-straps if he would use a little machinery. If be would take one pulley and hitch it up over an a:tie window, and put a rope over it long enough for both ends to reach the ground, he may hitéb one end to his boot straps, and by pulling on the other raise himself. In consequence of being deprived of the use of my property, and being desirous of seeing my plans consummated, I offer to g ,ve to any responsible party all the machinery that I have suitable to be used in the engine that I have commenced, together with a valuable rotary pump,with its hose and belting, provided he will finish it after the plans I have matured for the last five years; also the right to use the same free of royalty. And as to it being sure to work satisfactorily. it is as sure to work as it is sure that cite horse with machinery can move a building that tifty horses cannot move without machinery, as the principle is the same." On invitation, the reporter visited the room in an adjoining building, and the machine With its workings were exhibited. The machine, including a tank, occupies a space of about ten feet. A rotary pump is used to ' draw the water from a half-hogshead on the floor to a tank above the machine. The water flows from this tank out 11D011 an iron waterwheel, three feet in width, the pad dies being concave. Beneath are two similar wheels of the same diameter but one-half the width. These were assisted in their revolutions, not only by the water flowing from the upper wheel, but by small cogwheels. A hollow log was placed in close proximity to the pump extending from the tank and entering another hollow log which was termed a barrel, placed in a horizontal position. A small aperture directly under. in the centre, allowed the water to pass out into square cups on the rims or two small iron wheels. These he termed the escape wheels, which gaire a double power to his engine, The water thee passed into the half-hogshead, whence it was drawn. Thus the work of cue would feed the other, the water flowing from the tank on the one 'side working the pumps on the other. while the working of the escape wheels caused by the fall in the log and the pressure from the barrel would revolve a shafting, thus producing a continual perpetual motion. On the wall of the room he had a diagram of what he had proposed to do to perfect his work. "I first made these wheels." Mr. Beamnn said. -in the winter of 1869 and '70. Instead of aid, I have bad the whole community against me. It appears to me that our maker endows people with particular gilts. Franklin was made for the purpose of bottling lighting. Here I am squabbling along. but I still hope to obtain assistance. I have made all my own patterns and invented all my machines to make them with." (A number of which he exhibited to the reporter.) "People have been taught to fear friction. but I am not afraid of it. I can overcome it." As the writer was about to leave, Mr. Peaman called attention to his well-curb, by which a small child would se enabled to draw water, and by which fresh water could be had at all times direct from the well mid conducted to tenants in the fourth Story of a house if necessary. Mr. Beaman travels about within a circuit of eight miles repairing-clocks and watches at the residences of the owners. He also removes corns without cutting the flesh, 'drawing blood or producing pasta He lives alone in a portion of his own !muse, renting the remainder, and his wants are attended to by his Wu and daughter. Winthrop's Town Meeting, A special town meeting was held in Winthrop. last evening, ng n for the purpose of rais- i money need i ed n various departments and to discuss the erection of a new school building. The tirst article in the warrant called tor raising the sum of $600 to complete the work of grading Main street. and this immediately raised a tempest. At the April town meeting the sum of ti500 was appropriated to grade this street. This BUM bias been all laid out and nearly $500 taken from the highway department besides and expended on the street. Now the town is Threatened with a lawsuit op account of cutting down the street in front of two estates. A number of the citizens arraigned the present bard pretty severely for their action in this matter, and the motion by Selectman Irwin to raise this sum was voted down only two vossinct for it. The next question was to see if the town will provide a lock-up. This was indefinitely postponed. it being thought that no lock-up was needed. The next article was to see if the town would vow to erect a new school building. The committee appointed to look into the matter and report on the cost, locatiou, etc., were represented by P. Mae- Rowan. He submitted Plans for a buildinsz of either eight or four rooms, and reported ditlerent sites and the cost of The same. After this report was read the meeting adjourned to next 34(didaY evenda. THE BOSTON OUT ON THE NIGHT AIR Rang the Bell the Night Before the Fourth, For Which Summerers at Winthrop Will - Appear in Court Tomorrow. How They Outwitted the Sentinel in Front of the Church. It has been for years an undisputed right held by the young men of Winthrop and sometimes the old men to ring door. bells and otherwise enjoy themselves on the morning of the nation's birthday. In doing this they have frequently encountered obstaeles.but none so difficult as during' the Fourth just passed. The selectmen of the town, one of whom ts a deacon of the INIctliodise church, bad made up their minds that peatee and quietness should reign supreme on the night in question. and to lerther preserve the peace twenty-four special constables were sworn in to do duty in this little town. On a church. situated in that part of the town known as Great Head or Cottege Hill, has lately been placed a new bell, large in size.; and with a clear, sonorous tone, Be it known that "the boys," and by the term "boys" could he recognized citizens all of whom are on the shad 3t side of 25, and some on the shady side of 30, had sworn to ring that belt on the night of the Glorious Fourth. The trustees of tho church had heard of this ant-Ltieorge W. Moore. a large, trawny.museutar citizen, wile appointed to I guard the building through the long hours of the night. It was quite late, and George thought that the boys had given up their idea of ringing the bells.when,from the surrounding gloom, 1 a number of indistinct fig-ures emerged. As , they came nearer be recognized meny of them. and they, gathering aroend, began discussing the growth of the nation, sewerege for the beaches. and various other timely topics. The vigilent sentry kept his eye open. howe or. for treachery, and even refuse.. i to "go down the street a pleceto get a drink of beer." where. as one of the boys said, "We have got a whole case hid." 'Various methods were tried to intluee George to leave his post long enough for some of the crowd to sret into the building. but all these efforts were unavailing. They feared to carry the elaee by storm, as the guard was reported to be a walking arsenal of small arms. At last a bright idea occurred to some of the party. Two trusty messengers were sent for a ladder near by. and others continued the discussion with Mr. Moore. The ladder was quickly procured and brought through a back yard to the rear of the building. Agile memeers I f the party nimbly mounted te the roof of the church. and creeping along- the ridge-pole, reached the belfry In Ealetv. Here a new dithcultv was encountered, for it was found that everything had been guarded against. The tongue of the bell had been removed. For a inoment the vitt ackMg party were non-plussed. Then a thought struck one. and word was passed foe stones. These were tossed up from below and ensconced in a safe position inside of the belfry. and a rapid hammering with the stones was commenced on the long-sought-for bell. When the sound floated out from the tower and reached those anxiously awaitin g. below, and the others gathered in the immediate ieinity, a long, loud, lusty cheer arose on the still night air. The sound of the bell onickly died away and the victors Fenn scattered and faded into the surrounding gloom from which they had emerged, but ever and anon a cheer, whiciehorne on the gentle wind from afar,sounded more like an echo. was wafted to the solitary sentinel,w be. as he pared to and froaneditated on revenge. He had been outwitted. Revenge he is to have, it seems, for tomorrow morning five of "the boys." among whom is a councilmen of the city of Somerville, who is summering et Great Head, a member of that famous base' ball club. the Beacons, a prominent official of the Great Head Yacht Club and two other citiz.ens of the townthese five are all that Mr. Moore says he couidrecognize. the night being dark, and warrants were issued for them by Clerk Willard H. Allen in the East Boston District Court on Wednesday last. rhey will all appear in the aeove court tomorrow morning. before Judge Emmons, charged with maliciously injuring a certain church known as "The Pavilion," situated on Tewkesbury street. in said Winthrop. All the barges in teen have been chartered to carry the friends of the defendants to the island wards tomorrow morning. and not a few of the excursionists will be ladies. This little episode on the above night does not seem to be all that is charged to the younger population of the town. Certain persons are now collecting evidence which will lead to the arraignment of certain others of the citizens before Judge Emmons in the above court. It wilt be remembered that fifteen of the -boys of that plaee were recently before the East Boston court for malicious injury to a bandstand. and several of them were fined for the work. William Morgan was the prosecuting officer, and Selectman Samuel G. Irwin testified against the boys. On the Fourth of July night some one, Presumably "the boys' again, paid their respects to both of these gentlemen by throwing rotten eggs at their houses. Some windows were even broken at the captain's in an effort to bring him out to receive some of the eggs, for the crowd had been many weeks preiliarbig for this. and had laid In a store. The captain, however, let the storm rage about him, and mede no effort to go out to stop it. Not so. however,' with Mr. Morgan. He ventured out, but no sooner did he do so than eggs from all directions struck every part of his person. He persevered. however. and drove the crowd away. He says that they had placed a quantity of caner in an outhouse on his premises, and were going to burn it when he scared them away. He thinks that he recognized serve of them, and says he will prosecute them in due time. DEATH OF WAYWARD CORA PEARL The Famous Beauty Breathes Her Last In ParisBrief Sketch of Her Career. 1 PARIS. July 9.--Cora Pearl. the once famous demi-mondaine. is dead. Cora Pearl, according to her own story, was an Englishwoman, her name Emma Crouch, and the daughter of Professor F. N ichol Is Crouch of Baltimore, author of "Kathleen Mayourneen." by his first marriage with Lydia Pearson, an English actress. Emma left home suddenly when quite a young girl, ant: under circumstances that were never spoken of afterwards in the Crouch family. Iler Memoirs were regarded in the light of a blackmailing scheme, and it was reported at the time that site received $10000 from a noble French family fur the suppression Of one group of letters. She was a heauty of the sculpturesque type. She was fond of parading her exquisite form in a faultlessly-lining riding habit in the Bois de Bouiogne. At one tune she took it into her head to appear in public always with a little poodle-dog. dyed to match the costume she was wearing. But the police put a stop to this. when one day she caused the death of an unhappy little beast by coloi ing him with a poisonous dye. One of the most striking episodes in her career was her brief apparition on the Paris stage. As Cupid. in Offenbach's "Orphee flux Lnfers." her dress was of the scantiest. the draperies of pale pink crone de chine being scarcely more voluminous than the clasps and chains of diamonds with which they were fastened. But as she could not sing nor pronounce a dozen words of French correctly, she was roundly hissed, and after the twelfth performanee she was forced to retire. In her Memoirs a number. of well-known Frenchmen are described at length. among them Prince Plon-Plon, the Duo de Monty, the Prince of Orange. and others. She became most no-tomes in connection with the affair with young Duval. the son of the famous Parisian restaurant proprietor. who attetnpted to commit suicide pn her account alter wending a fortune with her.

In their early letter this morning, Messrs.

The bulls claim that the granger stocks. particularly Northwestern and St. Paul, are considerably oversold on the crop damages, and many good houses believe that St. Panl, if it, reacts a little more, is a big purchase. , it is calculated that out of the whole 300,000 shares of corn mon stork the ffiort interest in it iseasilvtIo,o00, which may make it sale to buy on any further raiding. Good houses say that they regard it as absolutely safe. Lavenburg continues a bull on Northwestern. The strength of this stock has been proven by the fact that the market has absorbed fully 20,000 of long stock lately sold out on the cron scare. The friends of the granger roads think the revival of the old pool in Chicago yesterday will pave the .way for a new agreement . which will finally bring in the Chleago, Burlington & Quincy and the Northwest roads. Ale elallaudet. the banker. said last ni,:lat that this was his information, and it came from a high and responsible source. Lavenburg was a prominent buyer of New York & New England stock yesterday. Both Gould and Sage have. it is slated, been buyers of this stock recently. There is said to be a strong combination in the latter. and the .road is doing very well.

Insiders in Jersey Central declare that it is good for 80 this year. There is likewise a stronger feeling in Erie, in consequence of greater harmony on East-bound prices.

A Wild Race on a LoComotive for Life or Death. Flying on the Wilms ef the lila(' with a Mother's Life in Danger. A Hairbreadth Escape Another Peril Barely Averted. San Francisco Alta. Six years ago the 'Frisco line engaged as a peanut boy a chubby-cheeked lad named Clay Crouse. whose ready wit and willing banda soon won him all hearts and rapid promotion. In five years be was the proud master of an engine, and developed a "knack" of handling extra long freight trains. Other engineers pulling the same number of cars on the same track 'would meet with all manner of mishaps but "Old Cash," as every one called him, never made a break. One day the company bought an enormous engine of a new pattern, installing the boy engineer thereon, and began the special transportation of live stacks in longer trains and faster runs than before known in railroad history. Other railroads availed themselves of the big engine and soon "The Thunderbolt" ran into Texas, Kansas. Missouri and Arkansas as occasion demanded. Wherever it had once been. people always knew when it was codling by a peculiar whistle, which its master had invented to resemble a mixture of maniac scream and coyote howl. Strangely enough the chubby-cheeked engin-er began to grow in proportion to Ilie size of his engine. By and by he tipped 218 pounds of flesh, solid and hard as iron. Whenever that peculiar whistle blows people dock to the doors and windows to wave to the engineer who keeps everybody laughing at his fenny remarks. The mother of this champion whistler is Mrs. Fanny Crouse, who runs a country post oilice on her farm ten miles west of Oswego. Kan. She is now nearly 70 years of age. but, her wonderful energy. coal-ilack eyes and hair give her the appearance of 50. Between Mother and Soo exists a devotion which excites much admiration and pleasant chaffing by her friends. As her big baby cannot often visit her she frequently drives into town to see ! hint during his twenty minutes at the do-pot. At such times she always brings him a lunch. and he always goes without , dinner to talk to her. devoting his attention afterward on the engine to "mother's farm fodder." Perhaps theysit , on the shady side of the depot, or if the day is cold Clay closes all the windows and lifts his mother up into the "Thunderboit's pars Ion" The railroad boys wink as they pass and whistle "Pull Down the Blinds," but little cares the son who sees his big arm around "de mutter." After a tecent visit the pair had a strange experience. They Darted in great good humor. the son saying, "Well. Fanny, I've ! been leaching my best girl how to drive a nail. and as I'll get forty hours of from Saturday noon I will bring her out on Sunday and we'll build a conservatory onto your chicken house." He went on duty on time, she after her horse to return home. the wind sines morning had increased to a terrific gale, sweeping the open prairie with ia force that lifted people off their feet in a way known only to Kansas zephyrs on a rampage. Her friends tried to keep her in town overnight. but they might almost as well have asked the wind to stop blowing as to try to keep the courageous old lady from her domestic and government duties. The hired man would be sure to neglect her hundred little chickens: the Western mail was due early next morning. Topsy was like her namesake, "so shirtless," and would be sure to leave the clothes hang out all night and whip to pieces. So Mrs. Crouse tied on a heavy hood and veil and started homeward across the lonely prairies. In the meanwhile the engineer had been detained considerably beyond his time at the depot, and coating on a down grade about three miles from town saw a Missouri Pacific train crossing his own track ahead. and about half a mile away on the wagon road that also crossed his own line a horse and buggy that he at once recognized as his mother's. Ile Gave the Famous 'Whistle more for a salute than a warning, as she knew the crossing perfectly. To his our. prise there was no hanokerchief waved as usual in return. and the buggy came right along. He whistled again, but the old horse continued his jog trot toward the crossing. The next whistle was loud, but it, too remained unheeded. and then the engineer knew that the furious wind was carrying all sounds away from her back to him, and that his own mother was rapidly nearing a dreadful death under his own engine. He was nulling thirty-three cars of Texas cattle. and it was impossible to stop in time ! that long tralin running at extra speed to cover deteption. But one thing could save herthat was to beat her to the crossing. Yet to attempt it with such a load would no madness. There remained one chance, and the engineer took it. Out over the engine be crawled. and at the risk of his own life uncoupled the cars, so his engine might be unincumbered for its work. Then began the terrible race. Every nerve of man and machine was at highest tension. On tore the "Thunderbolt." and Clay could see old Dobbin stop and throw up his bead, and the mother urging her beast forward. Not a word was spoken on the engine. The raging winds gave long-drawn shrieks that seemed to cut themselves short in demon-like laughter or moans full of melancholy that died away in that serpent-like hiss that has made the heart stand still in everyikody who knows the wind of which is born a prairie cyclone. Instantly they would revive in mocking screams to chill the marrow of one's bones, so full these winds of fiendish glee. The engineer stood at his post, motionless and colorless as a statue, while the locomotive trembled, throbbing thunder from its great heart, and seemed to fairly bound in long jumps over the track, as though it knew what meant The Pressure of Its Master's Hand.. Those minutes seemed a year of agony. in which the old nag came tranquilly on, and the iron horse gave a snort of human-like intelligence, nobly doing its duty as jt ran upon the crossing, with the tireman's cap waving out of the window, just five feet in front of old Dobbin's nose. ' The son saved his motherperhaps to see him killed, for now arose a new danger. So near the crossing that there was no chance to recouple. came another grade, longer. steeper than the previous one. The ears released trom control were liable to acquire such speed they would jump the track, causing general wreck, or by their superior weight to outrun and crush the engine into splinters. All this broke at once upon the mother. Immediately the train tied by. She drove to the hilltop, and in greater agony than she had ever known watched her son's race for life. Sometimes an engineer has option of death for himself or destruCtion for others, hut in this ' case safety for his pursuing train depended on safety for himself. Away they went! The eitine seemed. in some mysterious manner, to grasp the situation and become endowed with knowledge of its own danger. as though it had spoken with the soul of that silent man whose hand it held.
