A qnaiter nf an hour later, in a deep, narrow ra*, ino, the travelers suddenly encountered a tree which had been felled across tho road in such a way as to prevent thoir passage. "What does this mean?" asked Perry, noting the nature of the obstructive.

Strange Collision. . Farny, the artist, tells a story of the greatest fright of his life. The inci? dent happened in a little Pennsylvania town. Ile says: It was terribly dark and there were no street lamps. I was walking along at a good gait because I had an en? gagement aud was a little late. I started to walk across the road and ran head first into the most singular object I had ever felt. I put my handa against it, aud felt that it was some substance that gave; it seemed like a wall of canvas, and just then some? thing like a snake struck me in the face. A little further up the road I saw lights moving and heard the shouts of men; over the din of voices arose the awful howls of some animal. I thought I had an attack of nightman*; I was so !rlghteneil I could not move, and I could feel the thing I run into swaying to end fro. In a few secqpds I became composed enough to step back a few paces and wait until the men with the lights came up. What do you suppose I had fallen over? An...

Mr. Sage Cute Off a Nephew. There is a rumor in Wall street, writes the New York correspondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer, that Russell Sage has changed his will. Mr. Sage has $90,000,000, according to the income tax returns, to distribute to bis heirs. It ls understood that he made his will several years ago. He included in the bequests his young relative Charles Chapin. Mr. Chapln is a newspaper writer. It occurred to him a few days after Lunatic Norcross had failed in his purpose to blow up Uncle Russell that it would be a good thing to call on the old gentleman and write him up. At that time Mr. Sage was supposed to be knocked all to pieces. Mr. Chil? pin found his relative in very good health and was so pleased that he went down to his office and wrote a two-col? umn article describing just how Mr, Sage looked. This waa well enough at the time. Mr. Base never dreamed then that he would be put on the gridiron of Mr. Choate'l cross-examination. The arti? cle which Mr. Chapin wrot...
