FIVE HUNDRED PERSONS DESTROYED BY A WATER SPOUT

On Saturday intelligence was received at Lloyd's London, under date Malta, Monday the 8th, of a most awful occurrence at the Island of Sicily, which had been swept by two enormous water spouts, accompanied by a terrific hurricane.

Those who witnessed the phenomena describes the water spouts as two immense spherical bodies of water reaching from the clouds, their cones nearly touching the earth, and as far as could be judged, at a quarter of a mile apart, travelling with immense velocity.
They passed over the island near Marsala. In their progress houses were unroofed, trees uprooted, men and women, horses, cattle and sheep raised up, drawn into the vortex, and borne on to destruction.

During their passage, rain descended in cataracts, accompanied with hail stones of enormous size and masses of ice.
Going over Castella-Marra, near Stabia, it destroyed half the town, and washed 200 inhabitants into the sea, who all perished.

Upwards of 500 persons have been destroyed by this terrible visitation, and an immense amount of property, the country being laid to waste for miles. The shipping in the harbor suffered severely, many vessels being destroyed and their crews drowned.
After the occurrence, numbers of dead human bodies were picked up, and frightfully mutilated and swollen.

DEATH STOPS A WEDDING

Hartford, Conn., May 24--- Death crept into a church at South Manchester today and laid its cold hand in veto of a marriage ceremony.
The organ in St. James Catholic Church was playing Mendelssohn's Wedding March and the bridal party was approaching the altar. Suddenly Miss Hannah Leavitt, the bride-elect, reeled and fell to the floor. Great excitement followed.

The guests rose to their feet, but were waved back by the priests. The organ stopped, and the bride was carried to the parochial residence, followed by John Wrenn, the man who was to be her husband. A doctor examined Miss Leavitt and shook his head. " Hemorrhage of the brain." he said; " She cannot recover."

Mr. Wrenn begged that he be united in marriage to the girl, but they shook their heads, and said it would be impossible, as she could not make the necessary responses nor understand what was going on. The congregation was dismissed.
Tonight the physicians say there is no hope; that Miss Leavitt will die without regaining consciousness.

PAY AS YOU ENTER

A thrifty husband and wife at Harrisburg have been attending different church on Sundays, each giving a nickel.
They talked the matter over and concluded that the plan was extravagant. Now both attend the same place of worship and expect to enter the golden gate on the same nickel.

DEATH FROM VERY ODD CAUSE

Springfield, Mo., Dec. 6--- Joseph Johnson, an old and respected citizen of this county, residing near Nego, came to his death yesterday in a peculiar manner, and his wife is now lying at the point of death from the same cause.

It seems that Johnson recently discovered some mineral on his land which he believed to be silver and gold ore. Some specimens were given to an expert to test, which he did with prussic and other acids. On Thursday Johnson conceived the idea of putting the specimens in the cook stove and melting them while his wife was cooking dinner.

After they had eaten a hearty dinner they were taken sick and a physician was called who diagnosed the case as poison. He says the victims cooking on the stove absorbed the prussic and other acids that had been used on the specimens of ore and resulted in the death of Johnson and perhaps fatal illness of wife.

STOLE HIS WAY TO A CELL

A tall muscular young man went to Central Police Station last night and asked for a bed.
" We have no beds here," said Captain Burns, " and cannot help you."
The young man walked out of the station, and exclaimed: " I'll compel you to give me a bed."

Five minutes later Julius Weinberg, a clothier at 312 Main street, cried out that he was robbed. Officer Lillis arrested a young man, who had just taken a cloak off one of the dummies in front of Weinberg's store, but had made no attempt to get away.

At the station he was recognized as the young man who had asked for a bed a short time before. He gave the name of William Houck, and said he was a laborer from Nebraska.
He had a wild look in his eye, and the police believe him demented.
He claims he came to Kansas City to escape the wrath of vigilantes, who are thirsting for his life's blood. He will be held till morning and released.
