THJ2 UPPJStt BBS MOlKBSr ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MCMBEK 28, J8W2, STORY OF* A THRILLING RAILROAD WRECK-. Car feoad Was Stew and a tiorse Might Mure Made fcettei- bat this Sliced o* its Trains Was Appreciated la One Case Anyway—Hfere It is. "We Wete sitting in the smoking car Of the sleeper and the conversation un- plaBantljr ( enough, drifted into the question of railroad wrecks. It was strange, • Mo, that this should be, for We were all old hands at traveling, That sort of people seldom talk about wrecks, but we were soon In the thick of it, every man of «s telling his experiences." So spqfca Jatnes A, Hart, to whose mind this story Was brought by the occurrence of several bad wrecks in the east. "We wer« traveling from one town to another—1 won't Say where—on a road 1 will cull the Alegazain, because 1 don't want to make bad friends of the railroad people. But the experience is worth telling, for Til never forget it if I live to be a thousand years and a day old. There \vr. i one big fellow in the smoker—a drummer who evidently was a kicker. At, nil events he did not like the Alegnauin road. 'Why, 1 said he, 'it wouldn't surprise ino ti bit if we were to go sinas-'i before the night, is over. 1 .never ri M on this road without buying ten dollar*' worth of accident policy. Oh, this /•- k>- gazam is a beauty. If there was n horse car line alongside of it 1 would take that.' The big drutniiier WHO go;ting to be a nuisance in the con von tion, "At the end of every horrible talo h ' would brighten up and say: 'That isn't a marker to what will happen some (iay on the Alegazain. Murk my words This road is a hoodoo if there ever w.-.; one.' Our cigars were smoked out ;u cigars will bo smoked out, and we retired for the night. The druiiiinor'i berth was only a few numbers fro:n mine, and as he got into bed he. poke. 1 his htiad out between the curtains a ui Baidin a hoarse whisper, 'Let your IK--y bang half out the window so you'll !.-• ,on hand when it strikes;' and then tiirin.Mj In, and, 1 don't doubt, went sound to 1 pleep, never looking for an accideut. notwithstanding all liis talk. i "Now, a railroad wreck is a funny thing," continued Mr. Hart. "Everybody thinks he's the lust man out an,) the last to hear the shock, and consequently thinks there's no hope for hii.-i. People don't stop to consider th;it in ninety-nine out of a hundred wrecks tlie; damage is all done at once or not at uli. And this case is a good exemplar. 1 sleep soundly but lightly whon 1 travel, andj am a ready waker when there is any unusual noise—that is, noise not Caused by the travel of .the train over the. rails. This night 1 turned in with a smile at my drummer's t'eiu-H u,m.l 'was fast asleep in ten uiiimtea. The rub-a-dub-dub of the wheels sung me into a sound slumber, and I'm sure 1 don't know how long it lusted until J was awakened by a combination of three things, and pretty thoroughly awaketiod at that. First, the train hud stopped and there was no rattle. Then i heard a voice cry out in the night outside: " 'For God's sake stop that engine!' "And then following that up almost instantaneously there was a great crushing sound of breaking glass. That was all. Following this there was a silence jo profound that I could hear my watch under my pillow. What did it A MINE THAT SHUTS Its MOUTH. One of the Most Remarkable JTatntftl Wonder* of Montana. Reference to the natural wonders of G " 3jHean? A thousand questions rushed '^nio my head in the second of time that -".! allowed the breaking of the glass. But 'Before I had time to get out of the berth a voico rang through the cur in a tone the like of which I never heard before and hope never to hear again. " 'Jump for your lives! 1 '•I have heard and neon some queer things in uiy duy, but before I heard .that voice 1 never knew what horror meant. The feeling of a man's whole life was concentrated into that voice, and it struck into my nerves as might a streak of lightning that had no power to kill. i "As I jumped to the ground and rushed up the track I saw approaching our train on the same track, coming to meet our engine, the headlight of another locomotive, That headlight and the dark outlines of the engine behind it looked to me like some horrible monster from another world. It was more than a simple piece of machinery. The jibing was alive, and seemed to be about ' iien times as large as it really was. The 'impression I had of it then was the most angular feeling I ever knew,'and I can't Describe it. Everything had been done .ygp.q'uickly, and 1 was so terribly excited : ^at it was not for some seconds that I noticed I was the first man in the train that had got out. The strange engine 'slid along the rails until it was within a 'few feet of ours and stopped, • Then tho ipeople began coming out, ,|'"Why, in the interval 'that elapsed between- the cry of 'Jump for your lives! 1 'and the time the passengers were alarmed 'and had begun to , come out, a thousand trains might have been wrecked. •Nearly all the passengers were now out• Bide inquiring into the cause of the trouble. In my inquiries I discovered the cause of the crashing glass. The 'man in the berth next mine had heard the brakes put ou, had heard the first outcry and, thinking that trouble was ahead, simply bolted through his window, carrying 'the glass with him. He was not even scratched, We learned that, through an error in switching at a station up the road, the strange engine b,ad slid down our track just in time to see our headlight and for both engines to stop twenty feet short of a collision. ! "But the funniest part is to come. Long after the first rush was over a window of our sleeper was broken through, and our friend the drummer dived through it head first to the ground'. He had just learned that we were going to ibe wrecked, and he didn't want, to take • chances. And in big flight from the sv to the ground J heard hipi say, b $(j anything but a pleasant tone of yoipe, 1 Oh, this is the Alegazain, this isT "•— t^ioago post. Montana, particularly the chicken broth and bichloride springs, brings to light others of equal magnitude. Colonel John Doyle's wonderful vinegar mino in Beaverhead bounty passes the domain of doubt into the sunlight of truth. It is backed by crisp affidavits, and affidavits cost one dollar each in Montana. The colonel and his partners did not confine themselves to vinegar. They discovered a mountain of pure alum in the Beaverhead range. The discovery was considered a ten strike and better than a gold mine. They kept tho'find a secret for several weeks, during which a shaft was sunl.' to the depth of 200 feet. The cut wan made all the way through a solid vein of alttin, and it was estimated that thn whole mountain was composed of it. A large pile of stuff was heaped near tho mine ready for shipment, and the miners had a scheme to flood the market with their product and rake in $1,000,000 at one fell swoop. Monday the colonel'rt partner went to town to lay in a supply of grub and the former remained behind to guard the treasure. During the morning a heavy rain began to fall and continued all day, and in the afternoon the colonel had occasion to go down into the mine, making the descent by sliding down the rope, and when once down at the bottom was so taken up with a contemplation of his novel and wonderful mine that he did not heed the fleeting hours until he happened to cast his eyes upward and saw that daylight had faded from the mouth of tho shaft. He started to climb upward, but had not proceeded more than half way when, to his horror, he discovered that the heavy fall of rain had so thoroughly saturated the alum sides of the shaft that, as a natural result, they had drawn together until the hole was scarcely large enough for a man to crawl through. The imprisoned man recognized his awful position, and without losing much time struggled toward the top of tho shaft. Every foot he advanced the shaft became smaller, and for the last ten feet ho was compelled to dig his way with a pocketknife, and when he finally reached the surface he was completely exhausted, his clothes were torn and his body badly bruised. The rain, which was still falling, soon revived the colonel, and he started toward the camp to meet his partner, to whom he related his marvelous experience. Together they started to their mine, or at least tried to, for although they searched for two days they were unable to find any sight of their late possessions. The rain had undoubtedly thoroughly and tightly closed up the discovery shaft and melted away every sign of the alum piled on the outside, so that to this time it has been impossible to find any trace of the mine.—Omaha Bee. MUSTACHES ORNAMENTS? Yucatan's Giant "Skeeters." "The largest mosquitoes in the world are to be found in Yucatan," said Richard Beverly. "Until a few years ago there was not a mosquito in all Mexico. They were introduced by vessels from the United States, and have in the land of their adoption attained proportions unknown in other countries. The lowlands of Yucatan swarm with monster mosquitoes whose bite is almost as painful as the sting of a bee. The historical Jersey mosquito sinks into insignificance beside these Tirans of their kind, which are frequently as large as houseflies. In neighborhoods where marshes abound it is impossible to keep stock of any kind, and during the rainy season people wear coarse netting stretched over face and neck to keep these insects from devouring them."—St. Louis Globe- Democrat. A Witty Reply of Pope's. As narrated by Edward Walford in his "Greater London," Frederick, prince of Wales, sometimes visited Alexander Pope at his villa. On one occasion when the prince was on a visit, Pope, after expressing the moat dutiful professions of attachment, gave his royal highness an opportunity of observing very shrewdly that his (the poet's) love for princes was inconsistent with his dislike for kings, since princes may in time become kings. Said his royal highness: "Mr. Pope, I hear you don't like princes," "Sir, I beg your pardon." "Well, then, you don't like kings." "Sir, I must own that I like the lion best before his claws are grown." No reply could well have been happier, A Uemiirkiible Bible. Mr. Augustin Daly, the theatrical manager, possesses what is probably the most remarkable Bible in the world, It comprises forty-two folio volumes, and is illustrated by plates on Biblical subjects. He has copies of all the Madonnas of every age and every school of art, and in the collection are included mezzotints, full line engravings, original drawings and unique prints. He has one original drawing of Raphael's and several of Albert Durer's. The collection is a history of Scriptural art.—Harper's Bazar. Young People WU O Go on the Stage. Mr. Dancy puts down the "draggle tailed" habits of speech on the stage to the fact that the stage is to a great extent thp refuge of young people who take to it because tb>-y imagine the life to be free and easy, and who adopt it with no greater qualification than an attractive appearance and a confident manner. They also regard it as especially favorable to their purposes, in that as they imagine it requires no preliminary training.—London Telegraph. A Death from Lightning. Caoper relates a case in which a young man was struck and killed. His hair was ourued oif and his nose bled. The Burgeon who examined him saw on the Bkin of his chest a perfect impression of nn inverted tree; as if tattooed. His cap torn to pieces, He died of injury to bram. ' • A Young Woman Writer Discourses o an Important Part of Man. Why do young men take such prid in their mustaches? It is, 1 suppose, be cause they think a mustache is ornamental. Is it? Why do men have cleai shaven lips when they could grow inus taches? And why do men wear half i dozen straggling hairs when they ough to have them shaved off? Why will mei continue to spend hours every day in training the hair on their upper lip when it doesn't make them look anj more handsome, when it is annoying ti their sweethearts by scratching their cheeks, when it prevents a cigar being smoked more than half through, am' when it shows a horrid propensity for getting mixed up with the food? I don't think mustaches are ornamental. The ideal mustache has ye* to be invented. It must not draggle nor be used as a shield to hide .one's bat teeth, nor be fierce. And oh, it must nbt be waxed or leaded! What do men say of women who use grease? When you are enjoying a spoon don't you think it takes all the romance out of the thing by having a nasty, cosmeticized piece of hair edge its way against your lips? And isn't it exasperating when your lover leads his mustache and never tells you? You go home with your face like a metropolitan extension map, and feel very uncomfortable when father and mother say there have been a lot of smuts about, for your face has got quite dirty. No, mustaches are neither useful nor ornamental. Were I a man and capable of growing a most luxuriant mustache I would cut it off. A clean shaven man looks much the nicest. Girls like a beardless face. They are content to know that whiskers and all. the rest could be there if they were wanted. You see, a man with a mustache is generally a bit of a fop, and girls don't like fops. If a man doesn't keep it trimmed it gets straggling and ragged: if he does keep it trimmed then he appears conceited. He is eternally twisting it this way, giving it a curl that way, stroking it and patting it, until he loses all character for manliness. Now, a clean shaven man seems to be dignified. Women love dignity. Why Is it they are always so fond of curates —especially high church—and actors? Simply because they shave. Women want in men a smooth, clear cut face- not with a great bunch of hair stuck out under the nose. Whoever heard of the Greeks having mustaches? Whoever saw a statue of a Greek god with a mustache unless he were an old god and wore a beard as well? Mustaches are not ornamental, because they rarely suit the face, because they are a protuberance and hide the outline of the mouth, and because, with a mustache, a man is frightened to laugh, as it disarranges it. Only a few women care for them. Men think al! women do. That is a mistake.—"A Fair Critic" in London Tit-Bits. coaches, with baggage, express, find posts cars, all drawn by powerful Baldwin loce motives, make a train fit for royalty UseU Those seeking for new homes should tnk this train and go and spy out the land.

A propliet in Athens, Ga., predicts that the crop yield this year throughout this country will be the largest evei known, but that beginning with 1893, and for two years thereafter, there will be the greatest famine the world has ever known. During that time rain shall cease to fall, and the streams of the country will all dry up, vegetation will no longer exist, and all animals will surely die. At the beginning of the famine the land will be infested with all sorts of vermin, and the living will suffer untold tortures.

Up in the northwest is a great empire watting for young and sturdy fellows to come and develop It end " grow up with the country."
