TIME

Time is a mystery which we have arbitrarily divided into a past and a future, that we may understand something of it.
In itself we may be almost certain that it is but an immense, eternal motionless present, in which all that has taken place immutably, in which tomorrow, save in the ephemeral mind of man, is indistinguishable from yesterday and today.

HORRIBLE DEATH

A man by the name of McClure, came to a very horrible death yesterday afternoon, in Manchester. It appears that he became enraged at his horse, and got out of his wagon and kicked at it. Missing his aim, he fell immediately before his horse, which tramped upon his body, and drew the wheels of a heavy wagon over his breast.
The pressure was so great that it burst a blood vessel, and in a short time the unfortunate man expired.

Herald & News (West Randolph, Vt.) Jan. 2, 1889 Pg2

There is a little hillock, overgrown with grass and weeds, in the cemetery at Dublin, Ga., says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, which has a curious history.
Georgia voted for William Henry Harrison in 1840. This state was one of the most closely contested battle grounds in that campaign.
The people of Laurens county were ardently for Harrison. When the president died in 1841 a casket was interred in the cemetery in honor of William Henry Harrison, and for many years it was visited annually and decorated by the ladies of the place.
Since the war the grave has been neglected, but the election of the grandson to the presidency has revived interest in the little mound.

MAN BITTEN BY SANTA FE PRAIRIE DOG CONTRACTS PLAGUE

A 67-year-old Bernalillo County man is recovering from the state's third plague case of the year after he was bitten by a prairie dog that had been captured at the Santa Fe Municipal Airport for quarantine and testing.
The New Mexico Department of Health said in a release Thursday that the man had been hospitalized but is now recovering at his home.
His illness " was likely caused by a bite he sustained from a wild prairie dog from Santa Fe County," the statement said.
Victor Lucero, manager of the city of Santa Fe's Integrated Pest Management Program, said the man was bitten at a center in Albuquerque, where the prairie dog, along with several others captured at the city's airport, were transferred for testing.

ENTOMBED MEN STILL ALIVE

Ely, Nev., Dec. 17.-- The three miners who have been imprisoned for ten days in the Alpine mine, seemed destined to remain there for at least several more days.
The ground is moving and this has necessitated a stoppage of the work of clearing the shaft. They have been supplied with food through a six inch water pipe, but now there is danger of their source of supply being cut off.

In size, it is equal to a full grown turkey, and its wings are long and powerful. The ground color is a variable ash gray, beautifully marked and spotted with white.
The bill is small, broad, almost vermillion, and has a fleshy membrane. When disturbed it has a loud note, between a quack and a scream.

Trinidad, Col., Dec. 30--- A tiny baby girl was taken from the injector pipes of a locomotive here this afternoon, which is used daily between Trinidad and Raton, pulling the Santa Fe passenger train over Raton Pass. The baby was thrown in the engine water tank, and the force of the water sucked its body down into the pipe.
