I rushed forward and. seizing her by the dress, pulled her on the track just as.the train went by. "She di'd not say a word to me; just opened her eyes, as If from sleep, lowered them again, and passed oh down Fourth street toward Franklin. She was "very dark and might, almost have passed for a mulatto or an octoroon. She was poorly dressed and I think that she must be crazy. I had never seen her before."

The freight steamer Drumelzier is still ashore off Oak Island, beach, where she struck Sunday. The members of the crew can be seen standing under the steamer's bridge. : The steamer is practically In the same position as last night. The sea is breaking agaiflst her, but not so heavily, the galej which blew during the night having died out somewhat-At low tide she was seen to foe well coated with ice on the starboard. The British ensign is flying fcem the stern and a wrecking tug is stfill nearby. It. was thought possrtrle at Fire Island today that; the life boats could get through the serf at that point and take off the crew if they wanted to abandon the steamer. The big ocean going tug Kathefine Morgan left Sandy Hook before daylight today carrying the Sandy Hook life saving crew and towing their life boat for Fire Island in an attempt to take off the crew of the stranded steamer. Captain McLellan, inspector of the life saving service in this city, last night ordered the Sandy Hook crew to make a desperate effort to rescue the imperilled men and "to take their big boat for tat service. The tug towing two serf boats of the Sandy Hook life saving station reached the Drumelzier this morning and sent a surf boat to the stranded steamer. Watchers on shore marvel that the crew has not succumbed to exposure or been washed overboard. All day yesterday the steamer was swept by mountainous waves that left only her funnel visible from Fire Island, and the chilly blasts of last night had coated her sides, deck and rigging with ice; The crew had not been taken off up to noon.

Mrs. Barrie has accused her husband of retaining possession of about one hundred pieces of silverware, china and ' furniture .valued at $299, which, articles she says are her own. They constituted the family goods when the Bar-ties lived together in a handsome home on Fulton street; Berkeley. Now that the Barries are ligltants In a divorce case which is still pending, Mrs. Barrle seeks recovery of the -household goods". She even sues to recover among other things a copy of Moody and Sankey's hymns. At. a former hearing of the case Appraiser R. At Curry estimated the value ' of the silverware at about $30. H. ft. Sorenson was appointed to appraise the chinaware and F. W. Durgin the furniture.
