Killed In KmkIuikI I>j- One Slriik# of
! I'ew York Pi ess: Two brothers wer?
killed in Tattenhall, Chester, England,
by one stroke of lightning recently,
and certain circumstances that sur-
rounded the affair were so unusual that
the attention of medical men has been
called to it officially. The two men
were driving in a dogcart in a thun-
derstorm when they seem to have
fallen simultaneously out of the back
of the vehicle, for they were found
about five minutes after the flash ly-
ing side by side on the road, with the
seat of the dogcart under their legs
and the driving apron over them. The
elder brother had no external sign of
injury. The younger brother was burnt
over the chest and abdomen, from the
neck down, not continuously, but in
several circular holes from one-six-
teenth of an inch to one-quarter of an
inch in diametrj. The metallic collar
stud was fused and the skin beneath
was burned. An odor of burnt flesh
pervaded the vicinity. The back from
the neek down was burned, but less se-
verely than in front. The vest and
shirt were charred, but the waistcoat
^ and coat were uninjured. The woolen
2 drawers and trousers had a hole burnt
| in them about two inches in diame-
t""* : ter corresponding to a burn on the
o body. There were no other injuries,
| nor were any of the clothes torn from
^ either of the bodies. There was no
rigor mortis an hour and a half after
death. The watch of one of the men
was going, and seems not to have been
magnetized, as it has kept good time
since then. The cloth of the cushion
! on wk*ch younger brother sat was
? I burnt on its upper surface, but ne
| wooden seat underneath was un n-
! jured. The tailboard of the dogcart
I had the paint si ghtly singed immedi-
ately behind the younger brother;
i otherwise the vehicle bore no traces of
' the lightning. The horse fras unin-
i jured and trotted home of its own ac-
like most mountain-bred women, she is
comely. She carries now upon her
head a tray and burden of from 120
to 150 pounds, earning less than 30
shillings a month by traveling 50 miles
a day as an itinerant seller. Forty
or 50 miles always bearing a burden of
over 100 pounds—for stones are added
as the tray is emptied of merchandise,
to maintain the customary weight—
and this for an income of a franc a
day! Out of the franc she has her food
and sleeping quarters to procure, and
her clothes to get. Twenty francs a
year will keep her in clothes.
A brief chemise and a light calico
robe constitute her traveling apparel.
On her head she wears a soft toche'or
pad, upon which the tait (tray) is
placed. She wears no shoes; she needs
none. The soles of her feet are tough-
ened to something like India rubber,
fpeling no asperities of surface, bidding
defiance to the sharpest flints. ITer
food is simple—five sous a day for
bread or biscuits, a few sous for ra-
gout, a few sour for some cheap liquor
to mix with her drinking water; per-
haps 15 sous in all. Her sleeping quar-
ters might be expected to bring her
daily expenses up to a franc; neverthe-
less such is her ability to economize
that shn not only manages to live on
her income (which seems incredible),
but actually saves enough to set her-
self up in some simple business when

Hoping when our life is over,
And our Savior bids us ''Come,"
Thou wilt meet us at the gateway
And will bid us "Welcome home."

TROLLEY CARS IN MARSEILLES
After Fifty Vi* r, Iht< Htsts Will Own
miii Operate the Line*.
From the Now York Tribune: For-
eign cities have been much slower
than those of America to adopt electtlc
traction, but they are now coming to
It rapidly. The public conveyance of
Marseilles for many years have been
omnibuses and horse cars. The latter
are now to go. and most of the former
will also now disappear, no doubt, at
least in streets served by electricity.
About two years ago the Compagnle
General Francaise De Tramways of
Pails secured the necessary concession
for working the revolution now in
progress In Marseilles. Before tho
close of issa it is probable that all the
principal thoroughfares of the latter
city will have trolley cars in opera-
tion. The uniform fare for short and
long rides will he 10 centimes, or 3
cents of American money. Hitherto it
has been customary to charge 4 cents
for rides beyond a certain limit. The
concession will expire in 19G0. Not
only must the company pay the city
an annual fee of $20,000 for the use of
the streets, and an additional tax based
on receipts after these exceed 11,400,-
000 a year, but at the end of fifty year*
the tracks and appurtenances pass into
the hands of the municipality. If
during the last five years of the con-
cession It appears that the company is
allowing Its property to deteriorate,
the state reserves the right to seize
the company's revenues to maintain
the road In good condition. The state
will take such rolling stock as It wants
from the company in 1950, but Is un-
der no obligation to pay for more than
It wants. The state may require the
holders of the concession to remove
the tracks at the end of the fifty year*
If it Is not deemed expedient then to
continue the operation of the road.
The pain of a burn or scald is al-
most instantly relieved by applying
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It also
heals the injured parts more quickly
than any other treatment, and with-
out the burn is very severe dona
not leave a scar. For sale by F. A.
