SAD FATALITY IN AUSTRIA. A Vienna telegram states that another thunder- storm which occurred on Tuesday in Bukovina caused even greater loss of life than the last one. At about 2 p.m., when the storm broke out, eight workmen, with the inspector of the line and his wife, were on the railway beyond Czernowitz. There was a high embankment at the spot, and under it a cavity in which some thick beams had been placed. Hera the workmen took refuge, and were seen in it from a passing train. The rain came down in torrents and the water in a few minutes poured in upon them in a rapid stream. The workmen tried to save themselves by standing on the beams, but they could not resist the force of the flood, and were drowned. In the evening some labourers found the bodies. A special train soon brought a surgeon, some medicine, and litters. Three of the victims were found pressed between the beams and dead. Close by lay the woman mortally hurt. Three more bodies were afterwards recovered.
