\ THE tJPPEE DBS MOINES, AtGOftA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, S<1892, ien Buried by a Cavern — May Yet be Living. Weeping Relatives Make a Pitiful Scene—Voices from the Depths. Company;Driviiig Pipes to Conduct Air to the Unfortunates. BESSEMER, Mich., Sept. 29.—A cave in occurred at the East Norrie mine at Ironwood at 4 o'clock this morning. Ten men are entombed and it is impossible to tell at this writing whether they can be rescued alive. The mine is surrounded by weeping and frantic Women and relatives, and the scenes are pitiful. Hundreds of men are working to rescue their companions. The company is driving pipes to get air to the men.If the water in the mine does not rise and drown the men they may be rescued. Voices can be heard at intervals. The names of the victims are: JOHN JOHNSON, miner. ABRAHAM THOMPSON, miner. THANK DAMSHON. miner. SAMUEf/ DAMSHON. miner. FOUK TIMBEHME.V, names unknown. TWO TBAMMKHS. names unknown. The skiptender is also missing and it is feared that he is caught in the mine. CAKNEGIB TO SHUT DOWN. :nin Jersey lirmlt'rs claiming the whole ttrth. ITic Holstelns, however nro landienpped hi this that every jnriiaal that Is black and white is railed a Holstein. Looking at an anction bill this morning I noticed this line hi birsre etters. "One Holstein BuH," yet I knew the bull to be but 1-8 Holstein. To a esser extent all other breeds suffer for the shortcomings of the low grades with only a fraction of pore blood. I am very liberal in sentiment If a dairyman wishes to head a dairy herd with a Polled-Anglis buH let him do so. He win pet a lot of experience and what he loses on milk he may make up n buffalo robes and so get a new kind if general pttrpos? animal. But if he choose a distinctly dairy bull be ho lolsteia, Jersey or Gncarnsey he oi\!dit not to expect too jnnert from the first cross. As to this I can do no bette- han to i-ppeat a few lines written rears npc for-Hoard's Dairyman which ins since been iloatimi around 5n the dniry pn-ss and was recently reprinted u the Dairyman and credited 1o rau^'i Home as an editorial, whereas ransre Home stole it bodily from the Dairyman: JUou't K\ppct too Mttc-h from a Thoroughbred Hull. But in buying a bull don't expect too uuch. Many men who have paid out r his heifers should sire at least twic-> as much milk as their dam. and if the dif- , erence is small, are disappointed.

PiTTSBUEG.Sept. 29.—A well-founded rumor is in circulation in Homestead to-day that the big plant of the Carnegie Steel company will shut down in all departments this week. The 23- inch armor-plate mill was indefinitely closed down to-day and the men paid off. The officials of the company refuse to talk about the matter, and their evasive answers to questions make it appear that the report is true.

NEW YOBK, Sept. 29.—The health board to-day reports no cholera in this city. Last night there were two suspicious deaths from symptoms resembling those of cholera. They are being investigated, but as Dr. Wilson, the chief of the health board, says, they will doubtless turn out to have been caused by acute cholera morbus. The 11 o'clock bulletin from Swinburne island was as follows: "Nothing new on Bohemia. Sick patients still improving. The Scandia is still at anchor off quarantine, but expects to leave for Haiti more to-day. She will unload her cargo at that port." Proof ot a l>oul>le Alurder. ABHLAND, Wis., Sept. .—A searching party found the body of "Bone Ash" near the Kaukagon river on the Indian reservation south of Ashland yesterday. It was terribly mangled and the pockets had been emptied. His wife's body was found yesterday and the fears of a double murder are confirmed. The searching party will now look for Orkinwall, the third member of the family who is missing, and it is expected to find his corpse in the immediate vicinity. Coroner Smith will remain at the reservation to gather more facts regarding the crime if possible and then return to Ashluud and conclude the inquest. About Hri'i'd. M. H. GAItDKKlt. Mr. A. X.

Tbe Star? ° r One Thut Hm« Been Immot- Poets hate always lored dogs, says Harper's Young People, In this poets and boys resemble each other. Walter Savage Landor was devoted to his dog Giallo. and Byron's epitaph upon his dog Boatswain we all remember: "To mark a friend's remains, these fttcraet arise; I never had but one, nod there lie lies." Cowper was very fond of his dog, and we know how Charles Lamb, who was a prose poet, loved his Dash, and how Mrs. Browning appreciated the little Flush to whom she indicted a poem. The earl of Shaltesbury kept his noble. collie in his library with him at all times, and Samuel Rogers always walked out with his dog. Scott declined an invitation to dinner when his dog died, saying that he could not accept o& account of the "loss of an old friend." Wordsworth and Scott both celebrated in their poems the famous old Gelert. This dog, a deerhound, was given by King John to his son-in-law Llewellyn, who kept "him at his hunting lodge, in the neighborhood of the Welsh mountain Snowdon, Gelert was missed one morning from the hunt by his master. Llewellyn, upon his return to the }pdge, saw the dog, and discovered that its mouth was besmeared Dr. Stewart, a Prominent Clinic, Makes a Wonderfol Discovery.

History of Cannot Read the the Gem. This is still one of the mysteries of geology. When tbe South African fields were discovered there was much . , " ' i astonishment to find the gem in a series L/l 4-rt w»_ ' ° Messrs. Summers, Morrison & Co., of Chicago, thus report the produce market for the week: I The produce trade opens quiet this ; week with a good supply of nearly every thing on sale except eggs and outter. ' Receipts of the best grades of butter ' ire light nnrt in consequence prices arc • firm. Good to choice creamer} 1 24 to . 25 cents, good to choice daily 20 to cents. The supply of fresh eggs is very light, and they are selling rendi- • ly at 20 cents. Poultry is recovering • in price from fast week's decline ami the prospect is now for a much better market this week. Live Turkeys are quite active at 12 1-2 to 13 cents, old hens 9 and springs 10 cents per pound. The receipts of potatoes were large the latter part of last week and the price declined some. Most of the stock on pale is green and undesirable. Choice ripe, well assorted stock meets with ready sale at 48 to 50 cents in carload , lots. Beans firm and wanted at $1.85 to $1.90 per bushel, for good hand ! picked. Hay and Grain market steady. I of minerals quite different fiom those in which it had been hitherto found in India and Brazil, says Good News. Instead of lying beside tourmaline, an- atase and brookite it was mingled with a breccia of magnesian rocks which had evidently been pushed up from below, and a great variety of minerals, such as diopside,mica, zircon, corundum, were embedded along with it. Some have supposed that the diamond was originally formed where it is now picked up, and the presence of carbu- retted gas and carboniferous rocks are in favor of the idea, but on the other hand the broken condition of some of the stones, and other facts, make it far more probable that the diamond has been ejected from a deeper source. According to M. Daubree, the well-known French mineralogist, the diamond issue:; from the infragrantic regions of the earth's crust, where periodot is prevalent; for it arrives at the surface along •with that mineral and certain serpentine masses which result from the transformation of the latter. The imitation of this gem has reached great perfection. Philadelphia, Sept 29.—An important communication appeal's in the current issue of the Medical News by Dr Stewart, clinic on medicine in the Jefler- sonion Medical College. It is to the effect that hydrc-napthol is a powerful remedy hi cholera. It i"« harmless even in large doses and >s related to carbolic acid to which cholera germs are especially susceptible. : An experiment by Dr. Stewart shows that a proportion as high as 1 to 7,000 has an undoubted inhibiting effect on the development of comma spirituni and a proportion of 1 to 2,000 exerted a prompt germicidal action. It seems that under any condition but ten grains of hpdro-napthol in solutiou would be required to render the entire small intestines anticeptic against comma spiritum, preventing its development, while about forty grains under a similar condition would disinfect the intestines, promptly killing any spirituir present. When .from exposure, the disease seems miminent, hydro-napthoi should be taken in doses of eight to teu grams four times daily for threi; or four days, and subsequently in live or eight grain doses with some frequeu cy. In early choleratic diarrhoea it should be used in quantities of ten grains hourly or even half-hourly until from oue to two drachms have been taken. Here it may be, and indeed by choice should be combined with an opiate. TO ANNUL READING CHARTERS. Kfi'ortK or tint >e\v ) ork StMiHtn Com rliltt«.K .\£aiu!<t' the Coal Trust. ALBANY, !N.

It was in 1SOS, after a battle, and the streets of Madrid were filled with angry crowds bent on destroying everything and everybody. Suddenly an unknown man, tall and dark and strong, appeared at the city hall. "Give me a band of musicians," ho said, "and before nightfall I shall control all Madrid." lie must have been a man of rare personality to have been able to persuade the authorities at all in that dark hour to j;:ive him anything of the kind, but he <Jiil. Going out with the musicians he v/andered through the town. While they played lie sang folk songs or some national air. When these bored the people he mounted old boxes and told funny stories, and by and by the people forgot to be angry, followed their new leader wherever he went, laughing over his stories and nonys. By nightfall peace reigned in the city and tho mob broke up and went home to bed. The man's name was Felipe Ducazcl and he was only twenty-two years old when be did this clever thing. We hear a great deal about heroic things in saving countries by long and terrible rides at night, or by the sacrifice of one's self by dying in somebody's stead, but few of us remember before of anyone who saved a town by laughter. - _ Killed lu an lOxploslon.

Th* los>8 will bu over 5 Cheese nnd The gourmand runs considerable risk in carrying his love of hierh living to the extent which generally characterizes him, says a St. Louis Globe-Dciro- crat correspondent. Not only in eating cheese, which he likes in a state against which a less aristocratic stomach would revolt, but in venison and other game does he stand a chance of bringing his career to a sudden termination. Cheese is particularly dangerous when in a "high" condition. In Limburger, as in other cheeses which have become decomposed, there is often a vegetable poison called ptomaines, which resembles arsenical poisoning iu its effects, It is attended by a burning of the throat, intense pain in tho stomach, and a longing for ice or anything which will ajlay the suffering caused by the inllamcd and parched condition of the throat. The epicure, if wise, will learn to curb his aristocratic appetite. FILIAL DEVOTION. The IJtlle Girl's Solicitude tot Her B»tiy Sfgtef. She was a tiny little girl, says the New York Mail and Express, with dirty, sun-tanned hair, a blue calico dress and bare feet. She carried in her arms a baby half as lar.re as herself, and the baby was so 1 oavy that it saffeed down in the middle, giving the infaA the appearance of being held by the feet and the nape of the neck. There was some excitement around the comer of the next street, and the chil* dren were hurrying forward like mad from all directions. The little girl tried to "run, but the baby was too heavy, and her breath gave out. Said I, in a spirit of badinage: "Drop the baby, sis, and go see what the trouble is." She stopped and stared at me. "I say, put the baby down on the sidewalk and run. 11 "Yer must take me fer a fool, mister." "Why?" " 'Cos, this is our baby." "Well, suppose it is? I'll stay here and watch it for you." "ICo. you won't, mister. You might carry it off." "What if I did? Ain't you tired car- rving it around and making your back ache?" "Xaw, I aint Say, mister, this is the only little baby we've got, and if yer only knowed how she can crow and laugh yer wouldn't want me to do no such thing. This baby hain't got r"> ma, 'cept me, and pa and mo couldn't do 'thout her. She sets up in a high chair at the table and crows and kicks while me and pa eats, and nt night I rock her to sieep like ma used to do. When ma died the baby didn't know no better, but just laughed and hollered, and I cried so I couldn't keep her still. Put her down on the sidewalk! Fool- killer '11 git you, mister, ef yer stay around here long." ABOUT PERFUMES. From the Gorman. For ages the common slang phrase, or its equivalent, ''in the soup," has in one form or another been in use among the Germaa-s. "lie sits in the soup" is used to indicate the situation of a man in misfortune by his own fault; "ho has made a nice soup for himself" is used to indicate a ludicrous or ridiculous position in which one is placed by himself; "he must eat his own soup," with other expressions of this kind, is BtiH in common usa throughout Germany. The conference was adjourned without the Attorney-General taking any action until some day next week, when Mr. Griffin will go over the testimony adduced by the committee with Mr. Rosendale before the latter decides on what course should be taken. Mr. Griffin said that he had no doubt that the Attorney-General would see that the position taken by the committee is a right one. PEOPLE BLOWN TO PIECES. Terrible Kxploglon Keported from a Small Town lu Colorado. COLORADO Sriuxas, Colo., Sept. 29. —Intelligence h:is been received in this city by officials of the Colorado Midland railroad, stating that a terrible explosion had occurred at Busk, Colo., at the moulli of the famous Hagerman tunnel. Nothing authentic can be learned, as the dispatcher is unable to raise the operator at Busk. From whtft. can be learned at this hour, it seems that a large quantity of powder was unloaded at Busk and still on the station platform when the west-bound passenger train passed there. Shortly after the passage of this train a loud explosion was heard by those on board the train and the trainmen are under the impression that the powder at the depot had exploded and that the operator with quite a number of other people standing near by were blown to atoms. The report cannot be verified until the train reaches Busk. VERDICT OF SUICIDE. A Coroner'* Jury Determine!) the Nv tur'rt of Cunaday'g Death. WASHINGTON, D. C., Sept. 29.—An inquest has been held over the body oi tho late William P. Canaday. The jury confined itself to establishing the cause of death and did not go into the relations between Canaday, his partner, Iloughton, and other persons. The burden of the testimony with reference to Mr. Canaday's allegation that burglars had tied him while necessarily not postive was all against the truth of the statement. The verdict was that William P. Canaday came to his death from a pistol wound in the brain inflicted by his own hand. Democratic Club* to Convene.

The Academy of Music and also Tammany and Nilsson halls, in both of which overflow meetings will ba held, will be elaborately decorated under the direction of a sub-committe of which I{enry C.

The learned in scents claim that they can distinguish and name each element of any compound odor, just as the musician can discriminate and trace the sound of the various insli-uinonts that are rendering the crowded symphony, says Harper's Bazar. Doubtless these learned ones could distinguish, on coming into a lady's drawing-roou, all the various breaths imprisoned in the potpourri jar—the rose leaves, the cassia buds, the orange flowers, the orris root, the vanilla, the beuzoni and cinnamon and musk and alcohol, and all the in- muncrable rest. But to the ignorant in such fine points the pleavr.re is perhaps just as keen, let the lc;\n>"l deny it as they may. Yet many think i!;emselves accomplished in this brn:.'jh whoso (-•clucctifin is still very far fr. ra finished. We remember, at the time of a famous Oriental exhibition in this country, when people were pos^.-ssed with the delights of the attar of ros.es to be bought there, that the Oriental stock of attar ran out, and it was replenished from a Yankee dealer's stock of oil of geranium, and the sale continued just as before-, entirely undirainiahed, and with warm adulation of the strange, rich sweetness of the real Turkish and Persian attar of roses.

SALMON HAVE HOMES. It Is Jfnw Known That Every Fish Knows Its Own Iliver imcl'Particular Pool. In their journey up the streams the first run of fish push on rapidly to the upper pools and head waters, one hundred miles or more, unless prevented I y insurmountable falls, with which ;:iost of the Labrador streams are well provided. Here fish have been caught sixty miles above the estuary before oue has been taken in tidal water. Some of the former remain in the lower pools and are joined by others as the run progresses. Why is this? Have the fish any remembrance of where they spent their youthful days, and remain there while others pass them? It is now received as an undoubted fact that every fish knows its own river, but I go further than that, and think every fish has a particular place in the river where it wishes to remain, says the American Angler. Were all the salmon in the Restigou.-'ie to push on to its head waters, \voaldnot the greater portion of the river be barren? The turmoil of sp-.iwning time on the restricted spawn beds, the turning over of the newly-laid ova, could only end in wholesale destruction. Even under present, conditions I am satisfied not over ton per cent, of the eggs deposited naturally ever come to life. As to the speed with which they travel at times I have caught two salmon with partly-digested caplin in them quite recognizable, and these fish were caught sixty miles above where the caplm is known to come. BUFFALO. Sept, 29.—There W4j another riot this morning between tht union and non-union lumber shore™ and three of tiie latter are badly l n . jured. The affair occurred at Stewart'i lumber yard at the foot of Qeneset street. The lumber vessel Arctic arrived at the yard and , non-union men were put to work unloading her. A crowd of union men assembled and ordered the non-union men away. They refused to go and a fight followed. The union men were armed with clubs and stones and used them with considerable effect. Charles Schroeder was stabbed in the neck and his skull probably fractured. Thomas Clark was also seriously hurt, and a number of others received severe wounds. The police restored order and arrested President McGovern, of the Lumber Shovers' union, and George Crowley, who are charged with inciting the riot. AFTER THE PORT READING.
