A FREAK OF NATURE. Strang* Liqnid Perpetually Ooxltif from the «'Fountain of lilood." Near the town of Virtud, in Hon* dnras, South America, there exists what is known as the "Fountain of Blood." It received this name on ac- count of the curious red liquid which is perpetually oozing and dropping from the roof of a cavern, and which, on falling, coagulates and exactly re* sembles human blood. Like blood, also, it speedily corrupts and emits an odor of animal decay. Insects deposit their larvas in it, and dogs and carrion l>ird8 flock to feast upon it. We are informed by one who has witnessed it that the grotto is the nightly haunt of multitudes of largo bats, which, like 1I10 dogs and birds, feast upon this strange liquid, which has not only the smell but the taste of blood. A fear fill odor is perceptible at a consider- able distance from the cavern, and when it is reached masses of the Mood may be seen in a state of jellified coagulation. [Numerous attempts have been made to ob...

POLITICS IN INDIANA. p?r w gj | > i k i i. Vv Iiy Harrison I Sure to Lose His Own State by a Big: Majority. All eyes here are fixed on Indiana. In the estimation of the shrewd politi- cians oi both parties the Hoosier State is the pivot on which the Presidential contest will turn. The Democratic managers were never surer of carry- ing the State than they are to-day. They are not at all afraid of Candidate Harrison's personal popularity. They have met him before on the Indiana battle-field, when his record was short- er, and consequently less objectionable than now, and whipped him in a fair fight. That was in 1876, when he ran for Governor, and the Republicans had Oliver P. Morton for a leader, a splen- did organization and the Federal Treasury to draw upon. The Repub- licans have lost ground since they won their scratch victory by the use of an overwhelming corruption fund in 1880, and the Democrats have steadily gained on them. The young voters of the State to-day are Democrats...

New York, Aug. 17.—The steamship Geiser, of the Thingvalla Line, which left New York Saturday, August 11, for Stet- tin, was run into off Cape Race Tuesday by the steamship Thingvalla, of the same line. Her side was clove in, and she sank rapidly. The panic-stricken people were .got into boats as rapidly as possible, the Thingvalla's boats being also used in the work of rescue. The Geiser sank so fast, however, that before the boats returned from the Thingvalla after their first trip the disabied steamer had gone down, leaving scores of people struggling in the water. Many of these were picked up, but when the roll was called on board the Thingvalla, it was found that seventy-two passengers and thirty-three of the crew of the Geiser were missing.

Many people have yet to learn that the current tradition, that certain great characters have wrought their great- ness through inspiration alone, is a líe i ion pure and simple. There are no rivals in any career so formidable as the earnest, vigorous, determined worker, who reckons hours only as a possibility of achievement Literary aspirations may inflame the soul of the ambitious, as a thought of some great name dashes like a meteor through the mine, and midnight may find the dreamer chasing the phantoms of the future; but it is labor alone that yields the perfect fruit It i-3 possible to feel the weight of this iron truth, if, after a season oi aimless service, ho turns to the page? of some earnest thinker, pondering oalmly over the result of ceaseless and patient delving in the minds of medi- tación, until from out his flinty lethar- gy, springs the phosph...
