A LONG ISLAND WHiLE CHASE.
A Story Reprinted for the Benefit of the
Moreheaa City Fishermen.
This was a field day for old whalers in
Amgansett. Soon after sunrise two
whales were seen about a mile and a halt
west of the village. Soon the whole vil
lage was in commotion. Five boats were
launched. Capt. Joshua Edwards' boat
was the first to get close to one of the
monster. The harpooner launched the
weapon, w hich sank into the whale's neck.
The monster quivered, lashed the water
into foam and was off' with the speed ot a
Racing a mile seaward the whale
i w heeled and sped off again so suddenly
1 as to almost throw the njen oyerboard.
; When it was about three miles off shore
j Capt. Jesse Edwards, with his crew, drew
alongsidu. A second harpoon Was driven
into the whale, out iawect to reach a
vital spot. The bomb lance was dis
charged into the whale's right side and
Capt. George Smith fastened a third har
poon. Finally streams of crimson spouted
fioni its nostrils, dyeing the water. Half
an hour later the fight was over.
Tim second whale having been lost

their comrades They made fast to : lie

Rogers began cursing Floyd and u-,ing
j opprobrious epithets towards McLcnduii,
to which the latter replied in f,.r,-il,le
The chief of police utresttl Rogers and
Floyd, and for ft moment had q,i:-t re
stored. Then Norment and one or two
other citizens pointed to McLendon un I
said he was responsible for the whole
matter Norment did this with an oath
against McLendon. The latter replied
that he would not take that, and immedi
ately drew his revolver and fired at N6r
meut. At once some six or eight citizens
and the constables drew their weapons
and began firing at each other, several of
the constables using Winchester rifles.
Having rehearsed the above facts as
established by the investigation, the re
port goes on to say:
"We firmly lielicve that it McLendon
had not interfered the chief of police
would have had no trouble in presirving
order and averting a tragedy.
"We deem it unnecessary to state all of i

Frank E. Norment came to his death at

MILLION DOLLAR LO-iS.
Fire Destroys the Grape Sugar Works
In Buffalo Seven Men are
in the Ruins.
Buffalo has had a great fire, the money
loss by which is over a million dollars.
The American Glucose works, the largest
of the kind in tne countrv, were destroy I
ed. Several firemen were injured and
taicen to Hospitals it is rumored that
some of the employees were caught in
thf building and burned to death.
Late advices from the fire state twelve
men are believed to be in the ruins alt
the other employees are accounted lor.
Several were greatly injured by jumping
from the wind w of the eighth floor; one
at least will die.
The works had a daily consumption ot
50,000 bushels of corn.
The annual products of the works, in
cluding grape sugar glucose, syrups and
animal products, reached 150,000. 0o0
pounds. Employment was furnished 1
700 men, who are paid annuallv in sala

Mad Dogs in Lenoir County.
Correspondents of the Kinston Free
Press give four mad dog items.
The children of Mr. John Sutton of
Buckle8l-ury were playing in his yard
when a mad dog entered, ami but for the
timely interference of Mc Sutton's own
dog some of them would have been bit
ten. The mad dog escaped but was kill
ed afterwards, and much to his sorrow,
Mr. Sutton had to kill the dog which had
defended and save the lives of his chil
dren, he having been bitten in the en
counter. Mr. Jed Thomas, who was bit'en neai
Granger's, had a mad-ston applied at
Mr. Robert Ivey's near Seven Spr'ngs,
but at last accounts he was growing
On the 5th inst. there was an exciting
chase after a mad dog near Grangei's. A
party ol men pursued him five miles and
shot at him several times, and yet lie
finally disappeared in a thicket. The
next morning he was again discovered
and then killed.
The statement is also given that the
sou of Mr. W. J. Korneiay, of Jones
county, who a short time ago was bitten
by a mad dog, has been to Durham and
had a mad-stone applied to the bite. His
friends are hopeful of his lecovery.
We have not found any theory ad
vanced as to the cause, but. there s-av.-.s
to be more dogs going mad over the
countrv before than ever bdore.
Mr. w. C. Davis, of Cove, who w as in
the city Friday informs r,s that he aud his
brother, Mr. E. Z R. Davis, were the

But the investigations are meinl tube
ol practical wse, "not simply to satisfy ( in i- '

lias been found that cattle can be inocu

a man to prevent smallpox', and a mild
form of the fever f dlows. Ten of the
cattle turned over to Mr. Williams have
been thus treated, and thn-e are just as

Now if the cattle take the disease and
all should be alike affected, it wili prove
the futility of the inoculation, but it the
an-inoeulated cattle should take it and
the others escape, it would reasonably cs
tablish the fact that a way has been
found by which any northern cattle de

A two-lold object is expected to be ac
complished by the organization one 's
to make reasonably certain that anyone
moving will pay, and tho other is that if
anyone is disposed to move frequently in
order to beat the landlord out of his rents,
to break up the practice and thus cause
all tenants to stay longer at one place.
Ii' s tenant finds that he wiTMiave to pay
his old rent b-fore he gets into a new
house, it is expected that he will very
likely remain where he is and continue to
pay the same landlord.
We Are One of the Towns, Too.
An exchange publishes a statement ol
the population of "the principal tow ns of

to thuse having only 2,500 inhabitants,
New Berne is entirely omitted. We think
those compiling such lists ought to be
caretul not to have omissions.
New Berne, according to the city
ceusu3 taken last year had 8,500 inhabi
tants and at the same rate of increase
that census showed since the National
census was taken we would now surely

The Goldsboro Headlight tells of a
case where the ' unloaded" pistol hat
again done its work. At Fremont three
ladies were watching their little nephew '
playing with an old pistol which nobody 1
supposed was loaded. At various times
he pulled the trigger in the faces of those
around and at last one of the ladies la "
imitation of the child took the pistol and
pointed it nt In r sister-in-law when all
at once it went off shooting her in the
breast and making a painful but fortun
ately not dangerous wound.
It is a matter of surprise that any one
can be so thoughtless as to play in such
a manner, and yet it is no unusual oc- .
curence to hear of good intelligent people
doing so, and in many instances of heart--rending
accidents resulting therefrom.
