speaks of Garfield's election :

has rejected a patriot and statesman
who had rendered the most impor

selected one who is daubed all over

man about twenty years of age, and
mortally wounded the engineer, who
died tlie next day. The accident oc
curred by allowing the water iu the
boiler to get too lov, and by pumping
cold water in it, generated gas there
by causing tho explosion. A sad

Child of Many Names.
There is a child near Rocky River
Spiings that has niue names, and,
strangQ to say, :t btill survives. This

the names in the English language
except nine, to her own children had
tacked the remainincf nine on to her

internal injuries, from which he died
