PORTLAND, O., May 24—Chinese labor­ ers will not work in big canon through with the Cascades division of the Northern Pacific road runs, because several China­ men have been killed there. They think that it is inhabited by devils with strong anti-Chinese sentiments. Nine Chinamen were killed there some time ago by failirig trees, and ten coffins were sent up. This was looked upon as a bad omen by the Chinese, and they were very uneasy as long as the spare cofflh lay around camp. It was not long till a rumpus occured, and a Chinaman was shot. The Chinese thought that this death had been brought about in order that the old coffin might be filled, and they concluded to leave the place, and cannot be induced to go back. The Stockmen MustGo.

A RIVER HORROR. :THE FRIGHTFUL EXPLOSION OF THE STEAMER SULTANA. A Disaster Unique^in the Annals of Casualty—The Cause Still a Mystery. Hundreds Ferisheil Outright—Moving Story of a Survivor. The tragic fate of the steamer Sultana on the Mississippi river, just above Memphis, on April 27, 1805, was one of the most appalling chapters in the history of the civil war. On the morning of the 21st the Sultana, from New Orleans, with a capacity of 870 passen­ gers, arrived at Vicksburg with passengers and crew numbering 110. Her boilers were leaking badly, although they had been pro­ nounced good just before leaving St. Louis on her downward trip, and the engineer refused to proceed until they were repaired. That was done by competent mechanics, and to the satisfaction of the boat's chief engineer. She lay at Vicksburg altogether about thirty three hours. She was boarded by 1,990 Union soldiers and 35 officers, just released from Andersonville and Cahaba prisons, making a total of 2,141 pe...

M, '."' '. SAINT KATE. When little Kate Melville was about to become Mrs. Rupert St. Jermyn she looked forward to a host of wifely duties that should go toward making for the braw, handsome laddie of her choice an earthly paradise as for herself she in­ tended to reserve the right of darning all Rupert's socks—this little selfish gratifi­ cation was one of the many bright antici­ pations that refused to be dimmed by the greater glories of new toilets, dining out or summers at Newport. What use to! say that Rupert St. Jer­ myn's relatives wondered—with high held aristocratic noses and chiseled lips acurve —at the folly of uplifting that little Mel­ ville girl to the throne that the lady of St. Jermyn was from time immemorial known to occupy?
