While a party of men were repairing the road near Oakland, Ill., a few days ago, five skeletons were plowed up.

RISEN FROM THE DEAD

Toledo, Ohio. June 10--- A most remarkable story was made public today, to the effect: A young Irishman named McIntyre, of Detroit, married a young lady of this city named Cunningham.
He died in Detroit a few days ago, and his remains were placed in a vault.

Eight days later his uncle visited the vault to remove the body for internment, when he was horrified to see McIntyre sitting upon his coffin very pale and weak. His hands were terribly lacerated and bleeding from breaking out of the coffin through the glass plate over his face.

He was removed to his uncle's residence, and as soon as able to travel came here to see his wife, who had returned to her father's house after his supposed death.
She was at first terribly frightened meeting him, veritably one risen from the dead.

So runs the story, which became public today. Reporters visited the house, but the family drove them away, refusing to say anything about the case. The mysterious conduct of the family is believed to indicate that the story is true.

FRIGHTFUL

Aspen, Col., June 8--- Last evening a party of young ladies climbed to the top of the fire bell tower, 60 feet high, for the purpose of obtaining a good view of the city.
Eppa Stewart stepped to the edge of the tower, and was leaning against the corner post, looking over the country, when the janitor, not knowing of the presence of the ladies, seized the bell rope to call a meeting of the fire company.

The sudden clang of the great bell startled Miss Stewart, and losing her balance, she plunged from the dizzy height to the pavement. She was carried into a neighboring house, where it was discovered that both her legs were crushed to such an extent that the feet were within a few inches of the knees. Her left arm was broken into splinters, and 5 ribs on the left side were broken and torn loose from the spine.
She is still alive, but recovery is impossible.
