Gr.ant  PIERCY'S TESTIMONY.  1 'I live in Cumberland, am a brakeman, I  am employed   on D". C. Co.'s train,  and on  17 August last was so employed, working on  train, running to wharf���������coal .train.   It lef c  the mine about 10 minutes past 7 a. m.; had  21 cars; 20 of coal aud one of timber.    Lum-,  .ber car   was on   tail end,L and brides that  was the engine and tender, full of coal.   The  coal was weighed on the "cars���������between 23  and 24   tons of   coal on   each  car.   'A car  weighs between 9 and 10 tons.    Had engine  No. 4���������new   engine.    It is the   largest   one  running on the line. I haven't seen it weighed. , It waa weighed at wharf.    Mr.  Beck*  man and^endell are weighers., About quarter to 8 when we arrived at Trent river bridge-  "I didn't see the' locomotive��������� go through  the   bridge.    We were   going   vary   slow,  about as fast as a good fast walk.  I thought  it was  time to  get off. ' Heard,  some, one  scream.   Of  course  I met  Mr.   Bell and  Enoch   Walker.   I took' Miss  Grieve   out  first, and Enoch 'lifted Hughey Grant on to  the timber and he lay there quietly, and we'  took   Miss Home v out; then we got   some  blankets and rolled them up in them.    Hugh v  called for water to drink; then we swashed  the wounds out.  -A crowd of men came up  from the wharf.    I left for Union and met  locomotive coming down; I went back to the  wreck.   I   worked   there   for   a couple of  hours.    Only the Japs and Mr. Nightingale ���������  were taken out'.,'when I was there.    One of  the Japti   was   lying   right out.   We   were  shovelling out from under the car.  ' I mide  no examination of the wreckage.   I was on.,  the last car of coal.    I turned round noticed  something; looked around and saw the locomotive   had gone 'through I saw 5 or 7 cars,.-,  back- of the locomotive. ",I got off about 100  yards - off.    I got ' off on the treaael.    The  trcssel at' this end is   pretty   long filled in  within 2 feet of the top.    Had no ^difficulty'  iu getting oi? en to the tiesscl.    TU,ere were'  on the:^raiij,v,Alf/ Walker^ fireman Grant,  Walter'Work, Grieve, Frances "Horde, Alex.  Mellado, two Japs and myfcelf;  "The engine  duver   was     in     charge     of    the   train.  Walker, Grant,   Mellado,   and myself were  working on the train.    The others���������two of  them were   going   home���������Miss  Home and  Work-    Miss Grieve was going down to the  wharf intending   to come   back same day.  Don't know about   the Japs.'   It has been  lately quite customary for people, to  go on  these trains." .1  had  no'.instructions  from  anybody about   allowing people to  ride on  them.    No notice on  engine  or any of the  cars forbidding people to travel on them, or  at the station or at wharf.    Saw them 3 or  4 years 1 ago���������not seen them ��������� lately. ' Have  been running over this road 17   months this  last timer��������� thvee years and a half altogether.  I don't know  whether  the bridge was ever  inspected, nor if any  precautions were ever  taken.    I thought the bridge was safe or I  would  not have gone  over it.    I think the  cars are 30 feet  long.    Wheye I got off the  cars, tressel was  rilled from  about two feet  from the top.    This, filling extends to within 75 to LOO feet of the span.    I got  off 75  yards from end of the  fillsng  in west end."  -   Gross-uxauimed.���������"I turned   round  had  not heard the  bridge  break,   but  saw the  engine was  gone.    I felt no  particular  jar  or   moLion   before I turned   round.    I just  ' turned round  steped ou to  wood at side of  car and then on Lo the dirt.    There were no  brakes on, had no  time to put  on a brake.  I have been   in   the   employ   of the   Co,,  sevoral years.    I was  not iu  charge of tha  train, and Mr, Little never gave me instructions.    I have newr  seen notice lately.    I  have seen them in the engine, these notices,  some time  ago  there,   not recontly at  the  wharf.    Being  accustomed to  see  them, I  would not notice them.    Don't  know, the  exact length of  the cars.    When the engine  disappeared I should  think  it was going at  7 miles an hour,   a   good   smart  walk.    I  dida'c n<>tit:3 'sue cars wont any  faster after  the engine -disappeared.    Wheu1 steam was  put'.on this particularly, don't  know when.  Be was bu'e.50  yards  from the  side.of the  spy.;*, when "she was steaming���������brakes - were  off.

In reply to Juror Willard.���������-"We had  no more loaded cars than usual, day of  accident."  To Juror Douglas.���������"It is customary to  go fdow."  To'Foreman.���������"It   is   usual   to   put on 1  steaii^ before we get to. t.he bridge."  ]V[cPHEE & ]V(pORE  ;p_i3__:_,__:R,s    iicr  Merchandise*.  Cumberland, and Courtenay, fi. C,  ��������� j\j  To Court.���������"I never saw a sudden   jerk  .on the span by putting on steam. ' I suppose the a.ther parties were, on the locomotive." 'j     ��������� ' t  BELL'S TESTIMONY.  The next witness waa Wm. Bell who testified as follows:   r  < "I veside in Union.    I remember %he accident.    I was at work .under,the^ bridge)  A.s soon as I saw what   was coming I told  Niph [Enoch] to run.    My reason for look- >  ing after Walker was he was near sighted.  Before I started to run, I was looking.    The  engine,had get to the  centre of  the span; it ,  had a string of cars following, aftcr'it, loaded.  "I can't tell how many cars were on the <  ".span.    Th'-   cars were'not uncoupled, from ���������  I   saw . tho   thini   when 'it  train came���������never heard brakes at all.    As,,  the engine was coming through I heard only  the crackling'sound!   The   engine w oo__h  ing on with tender first, her head would be  facing from the wharf,  toward Cumberland  The tender was twisted around towards' the  cow-catcher.    I mean by dry rot, the;, sap ig'.  dried out of it and the strength ..gone. '{'  said    it was a cap���������I am not a bridge buttd-  ' er or   carpenter,   but I use   my., brains.    \  never paid for passage; just jumped on.    1  never   saw a notice,   and I kpowv it is as a  rule for all companies not to allow people to-''  travel on their trains.   But I never heard it.  from anybody that  no one -. was allowed to.. -  ride'on these trains." '   " <    ���������  * TESTIMONY TO  B_ CONTINUED.  _t cracked   and   with a loud  engine    commenced    to    tall  the . engine,  commenced  report   the  through.    One"would ^\uk they were going  aw tal cautious���������can't say any other  way���������  and smoothly.   None of the cars would leave  the track.    1 suppose I would have seen it.  I should think it would be only a few  minutes before I returned, the engine was Mowing off steam.    After I returned Matt Pier-  cy gave the   cry to   come   and   give   help.  When I reached the spot where Piercy was  hi says, 'Come on and give   us help to get a  girl   out   here.'   Reaching   oyer   to   give  my assistance, I found he had her out in his  arms.    Then seeing everything so quiet hot  calling for- help,   Matt   Piercy   said, 'My  God! are' they all   dead?'   I repeated the  same words, and then I said   'I'll  make my .  way to the. section foreman, so if I could see  him, I would make better headway by going  to the  wharf.'   When Igot   to  the-wharf, .  seeing Mr. Work,! told him of the accident  and we came  back to the   bridge   together.  I made an examination of the wreck the day '  the jury waa there.    I examined the timbers  $nd th 1 span, and found out from the top to  the bottom} looked at tbe  breaks, examined  the wood at the break.' What  wasn't  rot-  ! ten out and  out I should call a dry rot.    I  : Ic-lced.   around   the   iron   work   and   saw  btvaks in the ro3s   whicb   connect   the top  aiMi bottoivxof i.hc span.    They seemed to be  clear breaks.    The engine was  lying on her  sido, in the bottom, leading1 for thq. wharf,  jm.t as she was on top.    It seemed to me tho  - tender was not in lino with her.    The  cars  were heaped up  at the back.    The  morning  I was down t>ere,   thero was ro*ten   wood  picked u������>.    I should say it was a cap.���������some  of the jury said it was a tie.    The piece of  timber was   not there before   the   accident. ���������  Tho rotten   stick was from two feet to two  feet six inches lon^ crumpled up at each end;  betSveen 12 to 14 inches   one  way.- and the  other way I couldn't tell.   T-was  employed  by Richard   Nightinga'e   to pull  away the  bxoakwater, to, build   some   piers or  abutments.    As far- as I could   learn they  were  about to shorten the span.   The water break  was about I&  inches  from . the  tressel, not  incetfering" with it.    The  breakwater was., a  log   frame   work   filled   with   scone���������curb  work.    I have   lived   in   Union   nearly 12  months.    I have, had occasion ti go to the  wbarf   once    while    Mr. . Nightingale  was  away.    Generally   gone to   whart  by   coal  train; some tunes   on the   engine and  some  times ou tlie cars.    Never   asked   any permission at all; never   was>   ordered   off the  tr,ain. I have seen other people ou the train.  It seemed the common thin^ to go  on the  ooal trains,   and has been ever  since I have.  boea in the oity.

It is usually instituted by a woman who has come  ou$ of seme trial and is generally held in  July and lasts seven days.

In the   meantime I had been  prescribed fur by different physicians and  taken several patent medicines, but none  of them gave 120  more   than   temporary  relief.     About   fcbree  years   ago   I  left  _Wiarton for Chesley thinking probably a  [change   would, improve   my   health.     I  consulted a physician   there and  he said  the trouble was incurable and might en  ^fatally.   Discouraged, I  returned to  my  .homoin Wiarton, much worse than I was  when ,1  left, and   believing I   had   come  home to die.    Before I left   for Chesley I  had   been   attacked    occasionally    with  fainting spells; on   my return   theso  oc  curred   more   frequently and    of  longer  duration.    With   the   k>ast   excitement I  would faint   dead  awaj\    I had   became  very weak and could scarcely walk across  the iloor and felt  myself growing  worse  every day.

< Nearly every Chinese mercantile store'in
this country lias attached to it a Chinese
doctor and a pharmaceutical department.
In China every ono chooses his own occupation,, and''any person may assume the
title of physician without' having given
previous evidence of his professional com-
* potency,. Thero aro no medical coll eyes,
and" no examination tests o_is.fi to worry
'tho minds of tho future'practitioners. Ami
noither are diplomas asked for or granted.
v This unlimited liberty of- salouting an
occupation has resulted in making tho Chinese medical profession very large, and'
when tho Chinese start a business a Chinese- doctor is always included as one of
tho partners, and lie acts as physician and
apothecary for tlio linn: In China Chinese
apothecaries, before they can curry on
their business, must pans an examination
' and must exhibit a diploma iroin the examination board. , Medical study consists
in ' mechanically learning tho old Chinese
medical -works, and,"when possible, the
inheritodknowlcdge of remedies all in accordance -with tho Chinoso maxim, "The
older tho better."-    r., '

- One of those slang words which, at first
frowned upon, beoerne rrsflular and recognized individa���l* in the verbalcommunity
because they'express something for wnioh
there is no other adequate, expression, is
the noun "panhandler," and its offshoot
is thc verb "to panhandle." ' A number of
letters have recently been received asking
by what authority the word punhundk-r
was used and whence it a_u:o.' Tho answer was that it established icsolf by authority of its being the only word to express that form cf ��� beggary which la characterized by tbe implied oructual throne of
violence. As far the source of the word,
tlie suggestion was m_de thai- a panhan-'
dler is one who* ban ilea a pan or cu;i ot
growler, eenaethiBg u_sd for carrying
drinks." .     - ~
Other eorraspendents objected to thitton
the pround that i_ this oity, at leaai-, a
growler is frequently called '"can" .or
*' d nek'' or "* pitaher," tbu�� never a ' ��� pa ���.''
On shipboard the tem- pan might bo used
in this sense, but panhandle is not a marine
word.' A no the* suggestion waa that the
word-came frem the wart whore tho tough
tramps who follow the ,llDe^of tho Pun-
handle' railroad are called panhandlers.
From a California** who is visiting iu town'
a Sun reporter got another version of .the
word's origin. ��� ,' ,
"About., ten years ago," said the California n, "there was a ehap called Mink
Diismhoffer in 8a��� Fruncisco who started
a bar and '��ally.' a* ho called it, down
near tho water front;.. His placo waa pretty
tough, but ho had good things to eat.,'and
the 'catTy* did a big ,bnsineaa. One night
his cntirov force of waiters struck for higher wages und Mink turned 'em out. In
their places he got agong of scatter iiiouohe3
and mulligrubberti that didn't know bean
soup from charlotte mass,commonly ordered under the name jut' Charley Boss. Du-
senhoffer und��*took to tmin 'om by disciplinarian inwtbods, chiefly enforced with
a beer' mallet.' .On the third night thero
were jQvo fLyhts in the place between customers and waiters; one man was shot and
tho wholo gang' of recruits fell en Mink
and broke hia bead. Then they .looted tho
bar and got drunk. That:, night about.
three dozen "people were held ,up in that
part of tho city. -Minis put out a placard
that read: u " '
Tho public Is wnraed against the Rant; of
slush shngers. dish tiwabburn end punhaadlocs
that leftiayplacM yesterday. They sire thieves
end murderer*, aacl.thisru is enough buckshot
waiting for them h��ro to blow them all to
hell, where they bctloag.
"That gang made things lively for
awhile, but tbe? didn't tackle tho'cafiy.'
Every time there was an arrest for a hold
up or assault during the next month tho
word went along tho water front:
" 'There's another of Slink's panhandlers. '
"Pretty soon Gha word becamo a fixture
for any tough character that was out of a
job, particularly if he wont into the hold up
business. I heavd it there ru long -is ten
years ago. and I sup_��o*�� it's been revised

The Installment Plan.
Sometimes, Svithout doubt, Ainfirican
and British judges v.-hoaro held to.a close
accountability to tho letter of a'law which
may htive in it no .iustice for a particular
case may well sigh for tho latitudc'df an
oriental cadi. Sometimes, moreover, they
may rightfully bend the administ.vationof
the law in the direction pf absolute- justice.,. .;'
, An English paper, for instance,'records
a peculiar decision in the suit of a lisurer
against a poor woman. The'man had lent
the woman money'in such a way that it
was to bo paid in installments and with
monthly usurious interest. The woman
was unable to pay tho amount due.
The judge satisfied himself that the
woman was honest and honorable and
that what sho had already paid in installments would cover tho original loan aud
a reasonable interest.

The ordinary cla,7 pipe has undor the

seem impxissiblo to break from theopposite
6ide of an ordinary tablw without injuring
the bowl or breaking the stem. Yet it can
bo done with ca.-.u after two or three attempts.
Break off  a piece of  tho stum���about a
couple of  inches will do���and placo it on
tho table  so tbat  it. projects a  little over
the edge.    'As"k a friend, to hold  the. pipe

Holmes   deserves  *'       ii,,,  ' r.  great credit for*1 presence of mind; also Mr.  Sam Gliffe who ran 'down to Mr. Mac-  .donald'j, bucket'in hand, and dropped .the  bucktit in the, well, forgetting that there  was no rope , attached to' it. m The fire was  finally extinguished by the bar tender Alex.
