A Strange Mystt'ij.
The testimony at the inquest tit two
men run over by a train on tho Pan
Handle Railroad, gives rise to much
speculation. John O'Donnell, the en-
gineer of the locomotive, and the prin-
cipal witness, says the morning was
very foggy, yet he observed im obstruc-
tion tho track, but not until too late to
stop. At the first glimpse he obtaiced,
there appeared but ono body 011 the
track, but getting nearer, he saw two
men, one of whom raised himself npon
his elbows, looked calmly at the swiftly
approaching death, and then laid down
again, his head over one rail and his
feet extended across the other, The
smallei man was struck first and rolled
over several times, and becoming en-
tangled iu tin' machinery, was dragged
a considerable distance, where it was
left bv tlio whet^fs of the engine ill a
mangled condition. The head of the
other man was cut off as though it had
been severed by a knife, and both feet
wers taken off over the ankles. Other-
wise the body was not mutilated. A
pass book was found 011 the body of the
smaller man, and it contained the name
of Wm. M. Lloyd. Near where the
men were killed, a revolver was found,
two chamlK'rs of which were empty,
and Imre evidence of their recent dis
charge. Lloyd’s body, although taken
up immediately after tin* engine had
left it, was cold, and indicated that life
had been extinct for some time. It is
generally supposed that tho unknown
man first shot and killed Lloyd, then
laid his body across the rail and took
his place beside it, calmly awaiting

000 voices, an orehestra of 1,500, and
the grand organ. This was followed
by au overture from Hien/.i, chorus of
Damascus, piano solo by llendel, and a I
four-part song, utnlt r direction of Zor |
rhon, the Intlamatus from Stabat Ma
ter, in which Madame lludorndorf sang
a solo.
The second part of tho programmo
was opened by the United States Ma-
rine l>and, who played several patriotic
airs. Th«« singing of the “Star-spun
gled Manner” followed. The grami
chorus was given with cannon and bells,
all the military bands, full orchestra,
great organ and full chorus. The au-
dience was wild with enthusiasm. The
ooneert w;dtz of Strauss, “On tho
Heaiitiful Danube," followed. Tin
music was conducted by himself, and
was a great success. Verdi’s anvil cho-
rus was then performed, after which
the concert closed by singing “Nearer
my God to Thee.”

Tho St. Louis Republican learns by
correspondence from Hermitage, Mo.,
• d a terrible poisoning case which oc-
eurred in the town of Wheatland 011
Wednesday Iasi. - It appears that 11
young man named Moore applied to
the county physician for a prescription
to cure ague. Objecting to quiuitie,
the doctor prescribed some bitters com-
posed of Peruvian bark, dogwood and
whisky. ‘ Moore took a dose, started
for home, which he was barely uble to
reach, and shortly after died. Drs.
Redfield and Barnes, who were sum-
moned by Mr. Moore’s mother, to quiet
her fears that her son had been poi-
soned, each took a dose of tho bitters,
and soon after started for home,but had
proceeded only a short distance when
Dr. Hames was taken violently ill, and
was compelled to dismount from his
horse, and was just able to drag him-
self home. He died during the night.
Dr. Redfield, feeling premonitory
symptoms of ¡»oisoniug, spurred his
horse to tho utmost speed, and just
reached his residence, when he fell in-
sensible at the doer. Ho was earned
inside and died within fifteen minutes.
The matter had not been investigated
when the letter was written; therefore
it is not known whether the doctor who
prepared the bitters made a mistake,or
whether the druggist from whom he
procured the medicine committed a
New English Caurihlute for Favor.
Boston is just now coddling Mr. Sid-
ney Woodlett, an Englishman lately
over, who has distinguished excellence
as a public reader. He rendered Long-
fellow’s “ Courtship of Milos Stand-
ish” to a largo audienee of the elito
the other night, and altogether made a
heavy drain on their superlatives by
the charming way in which he did it.
One of the accredited interpreters «if
Boston appreciation thus sums up tho
the performance: It was not the
boldness of the outline, but
the dehoae.y of tho shading which
caught your eye. No daintiness of
conceit was so subtle as to escape the
reader. He was by turns bluff Miles
Staudish, the warlike captain, hearty,
passionate and strong; John Alden,
the scribe, scholar, and gentleman, ami
teuder lover; and, most marvelous of
all, he was Priscilla, charming little
combination of honesty and coquetry,
of English reserve and Puritan
straightforwardness, altogether a wo-
man, and just fit for human nature’s
daily food.—Njtrinjjfield (Mans.) 1\>-

Tho second day’s concert was a de-
cided improvement upon tin' first, mu-
sically speaking. Being tho English
day, the Grenadier Guards band was
the object of attraction. It is under
tho leadership of Dan Godfrey, tho
celebrated polka and waltz writer, autl
numbers tifty-eight members. As they
made their appearance in the midst of
the vast chorus, and filed down to the
trout in their gorgeous uniforms, tin
organ playing “God Save the Queen,”
the whole audience and chorus rose to
its foot, and a scene of tho wildest do
senption followed. The band played
the overtures to “Robin Hood,” ami
44 Der Froischutz,” and Godfreys own
peculiar “ Mabel Waltz.” In response
to an • ncurt tho band gave “ God Save
the Queen,’’ Madame Rudorsdorffsing-
ing the solo in the third verse, all the
singers, the orchestra organ and artil-
lery joining iu the chorus. The effect
was fairly electrical. And still another
rticorc came, :unl when the Englishmen
struck up the “ Star Spangled Banner,”
with tin* whole orehestra and chorus,
the whole groat audience sprang to its
foot, and the scene was fairly iudcscnb
able. At its close tho bninl was greet
etl with rounds of applause, closing with
three terrific cheers, wliiclf drowned the
fanfaronade of the orchestra.
The next prominent feature was the
singing of Madame Pcschka-Leutner
of Berlin, which also created a perfect
Madame Arabella Goddard, the
pianist, made her first appearance
playing Thalberg’s “ Last Rose.”
Straus« made his seeond.appearance,
and was received with the tamo hearty
applause as 011 Monday. He led his

and the attractions of the Kaiser Franz
Grenadier Baud, the Berlin Cornet
Quartette, Franz Stf.iuss, and Leiitner
called out by far tho largest and most
enthusiastic audience which lias as-
sembled. It opened with the old
Lutheran choral, Kin Kmtc Hurt/,
which was the initiatory number of the
first jubilee, and was given with the
full power of the chorus, orehestra, and
The seeond nnnibei was the overture
to “Tannhäuser,” which, like the over-
ture to “ Rienzi,” was magnificently
given, with Gilmore himself at tho
baton. The violin chromatics, taken
by over 500 strings, wore wonderful
each in their effects.
The leading choral efforts were “ Yet
Doth the Lord,” from “Elijah,” Men-
delssohn’s “ Farewell to the Forest,”
unaccompanied ; The German Union
Hymn, composed and led by Keller,
and the 44 Blessing of the Sword,” from
the “Huguenots.”
The German liand met with an ova-
tion fully equal, if not superior, to that
which was ^ivcn the English Band.
Their uniform was a very neat one, ami
their helmets, adorned with plumes,
gave them a very picturesque appear-
ance. They wore encored four times,aud
played a fantasia from 44 The Pro-
phet,” the overture to “Oberou,” fan-
tasia 011 theme from the “ Afraeaine,”
44 Hail Columbia,” “ Yankee Doodle,”
and the “ Watch on the Rhine.’’ The
national airs created a perfeet whirl
wind of applause, aud at the close three
migety cheers were given by the audi-
Tho cornet quartette from Merlin

ing < nr on«/, replied with one of Meu-
delssolri’s four part songs.
Abt received a very handsome wel-
come, and led his own familiar song,
41 When the Swallows Homeward Fly,”
which wasbeautifully given under the
magnetism of his presence. Madame
Li'iitner repeated Proeh’s variations,
ami Bendel captivated the audience
with more of his piano
There were nearly 50,000 persons in
tin; Coliseum on Thursday, thirty thou-
sand being auditors. The first piece
was the “Gloria,” from Mozart’s
twelfth mass. Lentner’s Festival
Overture followed. Madame Rudors-
dorff then sang 44 Let tho Bright Sera
pliim,” which was greeted with pro-
longed and continued applau.*e. The
Anvil Chorus followed which, as usual,
was received with demonstrations of
approval. Strauss next led the chorus
in his own concert waltz of “A Thou-
sand and one Nights,” carrying the
audienee by storm. Hayden’s chorus,
44 The Heavens are telling,” followed,
and was never better rendered. A
fantasia 011 the piano by Welili closed
the first part of the i^rogiammo. Tho
second part, was opened by Madam«*
Leiitner, who sang the “Magic Flute.”
At this stage tin' band of tho Garde Re-
publicaine of Paris appeared and was
greeted with cheers, waving of hats
and handkerchiefs, and all soits of
friendly demonstrations. As soon 11s
comparative quiet was restored, *the
band, under tho leadership of M. Pan-
ins, unexpectedly struck up “Hail Col-
umbia,” when a scene of undescrilmble
enthusiasm ensued. .Cheer after cheer
drowned the music, every one in tho
house rising and standing 011 scats, and
several baskets of flowers were sent to
the band from the r.udience. At the
conclusion of this demonstration, the
Notwitstunding tho great heat, a
largo audience was in attendance on Fri-
set apart as tho Austrian day.
Number tin» first was a national hymn,
44 Angel of Peace,” tho words written by
Dr. O. W. Holmes, aud tho music by
Keller, full of abroad,flowing harmony,
which was admirably given. Thcehorus
also sung, “Soo the Conquering Hero
Come,” from “Judas Maccalucs;
44 Sleepers, awake”’ from Mendels-
sohn's 44 Farewell to the Forest,” and
the familiar old hymn “Coronation.”
The audience joined iu singing the last,
and the artillery marked time, which
gave a ludicrous effect to the good old
penny-royal. The iusrunicntal 1111111
bers for orchestra was tho “Kuisei
Overture,” by Westniayer, dedicated to
tho Emperor «if Austria, ami made up
mainly of Austrian airs. Strauss, iu
liouor «*f tho «lay, changed tho waltz
s«>t down 011 tho programme, the “Kun-
stelor Liben,” for tho 44 Beautiful Blue
Danube,” which was heartily <»can if.
In reply, the 44Pizzicato Polka” was
given. Mad.Loutner sang the “Emani,"
44 luvolami ’’ in magnificeut style, and
with a mil Italian method, showing
great versat ility. For her « nrnrr she
gave «»no of Abt’s songs,with Abt lead
iug in beautiful flalhnl style, making :
marked contrast with her first number,
Mr. Arlmcklv, the favorite Boston
cornet player, aud Gilmoro’s band,
play«‘d Debcriot’s Seventh Ail in mas-
terly style, and received a double < n-
»•<*/•«, which he tiuished with “Last
Rose of Summer,” both with and with-
out the mute.
The main feature «if interest was tho
second appearam'o «if the English Oren-
atliers’ Band, who mot with another
ovation. Their first number was the
overture of “Somiraiuide,” and the
second a selection of iips from M«'yer-
boer’s operas. At the close «if these
the chorus and orchestra complimented
the band bv pt’rforming 44God Sa\<

baud then played an American national
air, following it up

The audience on Saturday was some-
what larg«-r than upon any pr«>vious
day. The Froischutz overture, Hellers
Am«>rican Hymn and Strauss’ ('oncert
Waltz, 44 New Wein,” wore finely given,
the latter being enoorod. Madame
Leutnor «nit di«l her previous numbers
in “Voryana Waltz.” The 44 Star
Spangled Banner” was now given,
Mrs. Houston West singing her solo in
a style that elicited an encore. One of
tho principal features of the day was
the performance of the German itand,
in T'lunhoseur overture, which met
with th«' warmest of receptions. The
band left the stage after playing Hail
C-olumbia. Abt’s 4< When tho Swallows

The sttiry «>f Tommy Nast’s artistic
career is a little pt'culiar. His father
was a professional musician, and wlmn
1 llrst knew Tommy the old gentleman
was playing that extension brass,
shove-out aml-piill-hack, force-pump
sort «»f old fashioned horn they used to
Imvo in bands, (a fnoud sajsit is called
a trombone), in tho orchestra of Wal-
1 ace’s old theater, corner of Broome
and Broadway, at ten dollars a week.
Nast, senior, wnutoil Tommy to bo-
eomc a musician, and, to that end,
iis«>«1 to thrash him with him a leather
strap most enthusiastically and faith-
fully, iu order to mako him learn the
scales «111 the violiu. Thomas, how-
ever, had a genius for drawing and
knew it. He used t«> beg his father t«>
permit him t«i become an artist, to all
of which the truly conscientious old
German gentleman (miw many years
«lead) would reply with additional
d«»s«‘s of strap.
At last young Thomas became uc
«piaiuted with Mr. Borghuus, now, and
for more thau a dozen years, one of
Trunk Leslie’s chief artists; aud to
Merghaus, who was also a German, he
contlded all his woes. He showed his
drawings to Merghaus and to Sol Eyt-
inge, who is ono «»t our most delicate
and fanciful American draughtsmen,
aud who was at that timo with Leslie;
ami they, seeing there was really some-
thing in the b«iy, then eleven yeaisold,
advised him to continue his efforts to
convince his father that he could earn
more money as an artist than as h mu
Tommy went homo that night, and
to the Gormau parent, having come at
1*2 m. (midnight), lie thus remarked:
44 Father, I must be an artist. If you
let me go and learn t«i draw, iu a year
or tw«i I can earn twenty ihrilars
week : and, iu a few years after that,
1 can bring in from fifty to seventy-five
dollars every week; if you make me
learn music, I may slave all my life,
and 1 shall very lik«*ly find myself at
fifty years old just where you are now,
playing for ten dollars a week iu some-
body's baud, liable to a discharge any
minute, ami tint ot au engagement a
quarter of the year, even when things
are at their b«\st.”
Whether it was the argument or the
determination of yonug Nast to learn
to draw,in spite of the paternal forbid-
• ling, that carried the point, 1 know
u«)t; certain it is, however, that the
next day, Tommy Nast entered Frank
Leslie's employ, and was aissigned a
«l«“sk between Merghaus and Eytinge,
which two thorough artists and amia-
ble gentlemen gave Nast all the regu-
lar instructions he has ever had.
The young artist more than kept his
wor«l; 111 less than a year he could earn
not #‘20, but tlirioe that, on Leslie’s pa-
per alone, beside making as much more
011 outside work. His father lived to
see that his s«»n was right, and to see
that sou bringing lnmio his hundretl
dollars in gol«l every Saturday night,
while he was humbly toiling away for
the same ..Id Imrdly earned ten dollars.
Nast’s industry and imaginative
genius rapidly earri«*d him forward in
the profession, and I presume that for
the past ten years, tlicr«* has not been
a week when Itis work, taking his car-
toons for illustrated papers, his illus-
trations for books and other business,
has not been e«pial to at least $50 a
day, and up to three tim«'s that sum.

Several years ago Nast was introduc-
ed to an English family, consisting of
the father, mother, boii and three
«laughters. The mother is a fine speci-
men «if the thorough-bred English lady,
and her daughters are like unto her.
The mother is an aunt of James Par-
ton, the biographer—ho who has writ-
ten the liv«*s of Andrew Jackson, Aaron
Burr, Horace Greeley, etc, and who is
known all over tho country as oue of
the most versatile and accomplished
magazinists ami men of letters in the
land. The eldest daughter, Sally, of

Change Among the Knells! Working-
A London Corresp«>ndent of a Cana-

profusion of silks and ribbons with
which tho women of tho English work-
ing classes were decorated «»11 a lab-
holiday occasion iu that • ;ity. The
w«irst of it is tliut this prosperity up-

aborers. Still tho movement for higher
wages for the latter is rapidly spreading.
Wages have been risen one or two shil-
lings per week in several of ihe midland
counties, and the movement speads.
What is most surprising is the
moderation and good sense dis-
played by those uneducated, down-
trodden hinds. There is no bluster,
no threatening of landlords, no r«*sort
to the outrage of rick burn) ng of forty
years ago, and there is a notable desire
to accept the lead of the more liberal
among the aristocracy. “A lit of land”
is the cry. At every meeting;some man,

himself to comparative comfort by
renting one or two acres of land for

after the convicts had st.arb*«l to work,
with a terrible noise and dreadful etleet.
The Hying boiler tore out the large

and gazed intently on the floor. Then
he sprang to his feet, and replied to
some feeble «piestion of his wife, who
had not risen since the day she gave

his sturdy arms the blankets, the baby

Some miscellaneous literary hacks,

from the exploits of au enterprising in-
dividual who is mentioned iu one of
the Liverpool papers. The individual
in question made it a point to supply
clergymen with sermons at the rate of
a guinea a sermon, but was willing to
make a doduetion to any oue who
promised to be a regular customer.
He appeared to have been successful,
and to have driven quito a flourishing
trad«'. Probably the sermons he pro-
vided were «piite as good as the major-
ity of those that are preached from
American or English pulpits. One
clergyman offered to take twelve ser-

which, if told before in the United

Mexico in 1K28, Miss Do I»a Pena. The
Emperor Maximilian wished to make
tho bride a preseut; so he placed in
the bridal basket a deed for a splendid
palace in Mexico, whieli was form-
erly used for the French Embassy.
Maximilian tol«l Bazaiue t hat if he left

Beer in Ilosto 1.
Boston Corrcsj'ouilcnce of the Sew York World
It was found necessary, iu the inter-
est of the foreign bands, to relax the
stringent liquor law, whkh forbids the
sale of lager beer.
An appalling concerted howl went up
from every band when they discovered
that beer was prohibited. For a mo-
ment the success of the jt.bilee was im-
perilled. I11 vain the city lathers poured
out champagne; in vain Lis Honor lav-
ished the refreshing eloquence of his
nature upon them; in vain General
Banks referred, with tears in his eyes,
to the bonds of universal brotherhood.
“Boer first and universal brotherhood
afterwards,” was the ndiguant re
sponso. At last the stern moral nature
of Boston gave way, and a brewer’s
wagon was allowed to leave its refresh-
ing load at the Coliseui 1 only. The
consequeuce is, that lagt r can now be
had in Boston only at ihe Coliseum.
This is the last and greatest concession
of New England morality to the dan-
gerous spirit of Gilmoreism which is
springing up here.
