OHN B. QUINN, chiet~ attendance 
officer, who is the bogie man to 
all the truant children of 8&t. 
Louis and ‘who is in charge of the en- 
forcement of the compulsory education 
law in the city. has compiled records 
‘Tor the first 15 weeks that the law has 
Deen in force. 
With his staff of assistants he has 
worked so quietly that few St. Louis- 
ans outside of the families visited have 
an idea of the scope and benefits of 
the work. 

More than 7500 cases of children who 
should attend, but had not attended 
school regularly, were investigated. 
 ‘Truants were made to attend school, 
ehildren who attended irregulariy were 
made to realize their duty, many little 
boys and girls were taken from fac- 
tories and given the opportunity of an 
education, and hundreds of children of 
foreigh e@ktraction, who had only lived 
in St. Louis a few weeks or months 
and knew nothing of the chance they 
have for a free education, were ylaced 
in the schoolroom. 

In the public schools for the frst 
Quarter there was an average attefd- 
-@nce of 68,102, an increase of 2932 over 
sart vear. 

On account of the World's Fair, Mr. 
Quinn believes that there were muvore 
#ohoo! children in St. Louie last autumn 
than this past fall. The increased at- 
fendance is attributed by him to the 
thorough work of the attendance off-

cost? We cant pay money. We are 

too poor,’’ they say. 

It takes a long while, at times, to 
ty that the schools are free to all 
children and that the children must at- 
tend if they are within the prescribed 
age. When this is made clear, as a 
rule, all objections vanish. 

The joy these parents show when they 
learn that theit children may have the 
udvantages of an education is one of 
the rewards of the attendance officer's

They are quick learners, these

A Polyglot Officer. 

To work successfully with this polyg'ot 
population, the attendance officer musi 
be a of many tongues. Paswe! 
could qualify for the superintendency o: 
another tower of Babel. He spéaks 
eight languages fluenily and can under- 
stand and make himself understood in ;< 
number of dialects. This is of special 
importance working among the Greeks 
and Italians for among them the dig- 
leots are #o different that they amount 
almost to a separate language. 

“We will go down In South St. Louis 
first,’ Paswel said, “I have a report 
of three neglected boys there who do 
not attend schvoi.”’ 

The boys—Andrew. Theodore andj Wil- 
lie Bentz—were not at their home, i7(s 
South Seventh street. “They run the 
streets, look for them there,” a neigt- 
bor said. 

Paswel went to the alley. A crowd of 
boys saw and recognized him. 

“Truant officer,"’ they yelledand secat- 
tered, like a covey of quails when the 
hawk swoops at them. Paswel pursued. 

The chase led to a coal yard and there 
the Bentz boys were cornered. The big 
gate thrdugh which they had hoped to 
escape had been closed without thetr

The attendance officer marshalled 

them in line and, holding the two larger 
boys, took them to their home. The

The boys promised to attend Pestaloz-

“Hey, gimme a match,”” commanded 
the 10-year-old, showing a_ cigarette 
stump to justify his request. Pawsel 
caught him, demanding the cigarette, 
for the attendance officers are a!so

But the boy held back. Not until 
Paswel lectured him until tears came 
did the urchin relinquish his “smoke.”’

boys called from their perch In a lumber

The child listened. wonderingly while 
she was being told that she would have 
to go to school fur five more years if 
she lived in St. Louis. An older sister.

The of John A. McCall and the an- 
nouncement that Frederick A. Burnham will resign 
the presidency of the Mutual Reserve as soon as he 
can arrange restitution, mark the wind up of the in- 
surance investigation. Whether criminal prosecu- 
tions will follow remains to be seen. But that is 
not very important. The whole world knows the 
truth. We all know that for 20 years we have been 
blinded, gulled and bamboozled. The men we have 
been accustomed to respect as very kings of practical 
thought, constructive geniuses of a high order and 
pillars of society of unquestionable strength, turn 
out to be poor creatures with absolutely not one 
qualification for positions requiring real intellect 
and moral force and consistency. The Blair reputa- 
tion in St. Louis was not more hollow than the repu- 
tations of these unhappy men, who posed as great 
powers in the financial world. It is much to know 
the truth. 


A committee appointed by the New York Cham- 
ber of Commerce reports to that body that publicity 
is the only weapon to combat “the spirit of sordid 
commercialism, which has clouded the judgment of 
those who have been the custodians of large and im- 
portant trusts, causing t#em to depart from the 
well trodden paths of rectitude and high honor, 
which heretofore has characterized our merchants 
and bankers, revealed by the recent imsurance in- 
vestigation.” As if to emphasize this the commit- 
tee concludes that no restrictive legislation can in- 
sure honest administration. This declaration is es- 
pecially noteworthy because it comes from the first, 
commercial body in the country, an organization of 
conservative men who are not in the habit of telling 
what they are doing. Legislation insures nothing; 
publicity insures everything; that is practically 
what this committee thinks of administrative ques- 
tions of finance. A man who is trusted will fall 
under temptation, no matter what the law says. 
But if his every act is watched he cannot make 
away with the trust funds. 

Two years ago President Roosevelt assumed re- 
sponsibility for the Panama Canal] and announced 
that he would make the dirt fly. After months of 
_marking time the whole subject is to be referred to 
Congress, the National Palaver, as Carlyle called it. 
and, if there is anything in signs, there wil] be no 
marching for a good while. It was ardently hoped 
when Mr. Roosevelt made his promise that work 
would really begin, but it appears that he knew abso. 
hitely nothing of. the administrative and executive 
problems involved. The project is drowneil in a clamor 
of conflicting opinions which are louder now than 
ever. Congress is well qualified to talk about it. 
But is Congress qualified to do any administrative 
work? The President “passes it up” to Congress, 
which is much like evading an unpleasant duty, al- 
though he is not the man to shirk duty. The con- 
clusion of the matter is, and it is a conclusion which 
the whole country is fast approaching, that there is 
too much politics in the canal, too many special in- 
terests, too much levity, too much thought'essness 
and too little quiet, sober desire to achieve a great 
public service for its own sake, without any care for 
selfish interest or personal fame.

_ As far as it has been reported by telegraph, the 
annual session of the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science at New Orleans is full of 
promise for the future of this country and of the 
world : 

To realize its promises, modern science has lacked 
. thus far only one thing, and that one thing has 
been ability to draw the hair line between discuss’on 
and disputation. 

‘At New Orleans, the outside observers of the pro- 

tedings have been as keen-sighted as ever Trutb- 
ful James was at Table Mountain. They have 
watehed every section for the beginning of what 
they have expected as the inevitable when scientific 
gentlemen would begin pelting each other with the 
relics of the paleozoic age. Yet thus far they have 
found only a single exception to the rule of full 

ion without ferocity. ’

Prof. Charles Eliot-Norton has devoted his lite to 
making a reputation as chief among those who are 
called in the Italian he made his specialty “the 
eognoscenti.” He collected thousands of volumes 
useful only in the criticism of Dante.and_ useful 
there only to those who decide to give up every- 
thing else in life that they may become the “great- 

est living Dante scholars.” 

To succeed in a purpose of this kind is to join the 
ranks of “the cognoscenti.’ It is as an acknowl- 
edged leader among these great lights of intellect 
that Prof. Norton is now quoted in favor of _put- 
ting a merciful end to the lives of distressed old 
people, sufferers from incurable diseases and othe?s 


who in his judgment are untit to live. 

It is only fair to add that he insists on having 
their consent before killing them, but it. dees not 
follow that th:s would be insisted on by others who 
agree with him in rejecting all standards by which 
right and wrong may be judged as supreme reali- 
ties, rather than mere conventionalities. 

In going over thus to those who hold that mor- 
als are merely conventional, Prof. Morton remin 3s 
those who have read Dante, of Dante’s definition of 
the inferno as a vast insane asylum for the con- 
finement of incurables who have “lost the good 
the intellect.” “Euthanasia” there might be mercy, 
but in Dante’s view it would not be justice. The 
he puts over the gate is that “justice 
moved my High Creator.” 

The one idea Prof. Norton seems to have over- 
looked in Dante is the idea which inspired that gre it 
moralist and lover of justice to write of. condit ons | 
created by those who look on right and wrong 
merely conventional, 


It is the idea of justice which 
does not destroy lifé even in the inferno of the final 
asylum for the hopelessly insane.

In concluding a recently translated article on 
what he has learned of America and Americans, 
Rev. Charles Wagner, whose “Simple Life” almost 
converted President Roosevelt from the strenuous, 
comes at last to the 
“descent of man.” 

This indirection is not exactly complimentary, 
but there is consolation left in it for us by the con- 
siderate kindness of Rev. Mr. Wagner. Others, he 
says, are more shocked at the idea of being de- 
scended from apes than he is. He does not admit 
it except as the worst imaginable beginning be- 
yond which there is only one worse thing imagina 
ble. That is to go back from the beginning of a 
high civilization to the control of instincts which 
belong to the ape. 

It is not gratifying to our pride that Mr. Wag- 
ner reached this last extremity of his imagination | 
of the worst possible only after the highly sue- 
cessful visit to the United States, during which he 
accepted one of our abundant doctor degrees and 
began to be called Rabbi. Yet though this idea 
entered his mind in America or after leaving it, he ; 
declares that even in “the ferocity of human feel- 
ings, the lowness of our instinct and the obscurity | 


the Darwinian theory of 

of our intellects, at their worst,” we can never 
go back to the ape. Humanity will master these 
forces of reaction and go on and on.

winian theory, of what is &J zh in London or said 
in Paris, there is only one se possible for Amer- 
icans of the twentieth ce The way they must

The steam engine and the ordinary internal-com- 
bustion motor by no means exhaust the range of 
possibilities of using heat’as a*source of power, and 
it would seem that besides developing mechanical 
features something could be accomplished by devising 
new principles on which heat engines might be ope-, 
rated. A suggestion in this direction has recently 
heen made in Europe by M. Cantor, who proposes to 
us? 28s an oxidizing material some solid such as 
oxide of copper. He would heat this substance to in- 
candescence, and then would spray on it some fuel 
such as petroleum or alcohol. .This would be burned 
and gas produced which would expand, and in go 
doing would perform-work as in any ordinary form 
of engine. 

In the meantime the oxygen taken rival the copper 
oxide bs the combustion of the fuel would be restored 
through the agency of the air-jet. Theoretically, it 
is clalmed that the highest possible rate of expansion 
would be produced in the working gas, and _ in- 
creased thermodynamic efficiency would be secured. 
It is, of course, too early to announce any practical 
result from this proposition, ahd a number of objec- 
tions must be faced, but it surely does indicate that 
power can be produced along other than the ortho- 
lines, and the present low efficiency of the steam 
improved upon.

A uew application of the gasoline engines is report- 
'ed from France—namely, in the clipping of dogs and 
sheep ‘Che engine is mounted on a hand-cart sim- 
ilar to the popcorn vender’s gig commonly seen in

end of a flexible shaft.much the same‘as that used 
by aentists for operating their revolving boring tools 
and polishers, this shaft being a continuation of the 
axle of the fly wheel, which is belt-connected to a 
small wheel on the end of the crank shaft of the en- 
gine. ‘The animal to be clipped is held on the knees 
of one person, while another guides the clippers. 

nieresting example of the manner in which an 
improved technical process may change the entire 
current of an important industry is seen in the de- 
velcpinent of the Louisiana sulphur deposits. It has 
long been known that extensive deposits of sulphur 
existed beneath a layer of difficult quicksand; but 
| the cost of reaching the strata, cither by freezing or 
| by sinking metallie-lined shafts, appeared prohibi- 
ltury. A new plan, recently put into operation, has 
| been most successful. This process consists in melt- 
ing the sulphur in place by forcing superheated water 
| down through pipes, the fused sulphur being brought 
to the surface in a liquid state. As sulphur melts 
at ubout 240 degrees F., the temperature is easily 
attained in an ordinary steam boiler; and the hot 
water is sent down through pipes 10 inches in diame- 
ter, to a depth of about 450 feet. By providing a 
second tube within the main pipe, the liquid sulphur 
may be drawn up; and as its specific gravity is about 
double that of water, it is correspondingly balanced 
'by the column of descending water, the balance of 
ithe lft being effected by compressed air. 

i At the present time more than 1000 tons of sulphur 
are thus being taken out .per day, or about 350,000 
tons per year, rs :

Bricks Made From Sand—Electric Locomotives in a Great Tunnel—Storage of Coal

Consul Williams of Cardiff reports that great sand 
dunes extend for miles along the north coast of Bris- 
tol Channel included in Glamorganshire, England. 
These, in addition to being utterly worthless for all 
purposes, are also a menace to the narrow strip of 
lowlands between them and the hills. A company of 
business men, with “headquarters at Port Talbot, 
nave determined to put the sand to some use, and if 
their works prove profitable an industry will be built 
yp on the dunes. The plan is to manufacture brick§ 
from sand. The experiment has proved a success on 
the continent, where the bricks are produced in sev- 
eral colors and take a glaze satisfactorily. The Port 
Talbot plant will have a minimum capacity of 10,000 
bricks a day. Some experts claim that these bricks 
made of sand and lime will be the building brick of 
the future in Wales and the United Kingdom. 


New storage plants are being constructed as fol- 
lows: Philadelphia and Reading, at Abrams, capacity 
500,000 tons; Lehigh Valley, at Ransom, 300,000 tons; 
Delaware & Hudson, at Carbondale, capacity un- 

The coal today by leading companies is: 

Philadelphia & Reading, 1,700,000 Lons. 

Lehigh Valley, 1,500,000 tons. 

Delaware & Hudson, 800,000 tons. 

Erie, 600,000 tons. 

Susquehanna Coal Co., 500,000 tons. 

Lackawanna, 600,000 tons. 

Lehigh Coal, 400,000 tons. 

Total stored, 6,100,000 tons; present capacity,

Mining property is being fenced in by barb-wire de- 
fenses 12 feet high. Part of the miners’ certificate 
law has been knocked out so that imported workers 
can be brought to the mines tn case of necessity. 

In case of a strike there would be no reduction of 
prices ot Mav 1, as in the past. The highest winter 
prices will be the summer minimum, with many dol- 
lars added, for the 12,000,000 tons in storage. 



A welcome announcement in connection with fhe 
subject of electric railway traction is the statement 
that electric locomotives are to be used from the 
start for hauling the trains through the Simplon tun- 
nel. It was originally intended to operate the new 
route with steam locomotives, as in the case of the 
older Alpine tunnels; but the employment of electric 
traction will obviate trouble from smoke and escaping 
steam from the outset. 

The tunnel is now enlarged to the full dimensions for 
the main passage and the masonry lining is being rap-. 
idly completed. The auxiliary tunnel is now open 
throughout; and with the improvement in ventilation, 
and the gradual drawing off of the water from the 
hot springs, the temperature has been lowered from 
130 degrees to below 80 degrees. It is expected that 
the line will be opened for business by May 1, and 
there appears to be nothing to prevent the operation 
of traffic during the summer. Active measures are 
at last being taken to improve the lines of access 
from France; and the new route from Dijon to 

Geneva, by way of Lons-le-Saulnier, inclyding the 
construction of the Faucille tunnel, will enable the 

full benefit of the Simplon route to be secure

Never tefcre in all the country’s history has it 
been so prosperous as it is at the opening of 1906. 
|The products of its farms for 195 amounted to over 
| $6.0,000,009. This is not only several times’ larger 
' than the preducts of any other country, but it marks 
a gnin of $250,006,000 over the highest previous record 
in the United States, which was for 1904. The yield 
of the country’s farms in 190% equaled the countrys 
aggregate wealth of all sorts for 1845. The country’s 
eold minés furnished $90,000,000 for 19%, which was 
$10,010, 00 in excess of the largest previous year, and 
the cutput of 1895. Its mineral products of all 
for the year aggregated $1,800,000,000, which is 
that of 1899 and four times that of 1886. In 
gold production in 19% we led the world, except the 
Rand in Scuth Africa. In mineral output in the 
gzgregaie we exceed that of Great Britain, Germany, 
and France. For 190 the country’s foreign trade 
passed the $2.50,000,000 mark for the first time, but 
ou: domestic tréde was immeasurably in excess of 
this. being far akove $20,000,000,000. We produced 22,- 
509 000 tons of p‘c-iron in the year, or as much as our 
nearest cumpetitors combined—Great Britain, 
Germany and Frerce. In manufactures, in whiea we 
hive had a precedence over England since *‘ss), and 
inereusing our lead lead ever sinve. the 
yeen particularly active in tho year. 
The country’s railroads, which exceed those of all 
Europe in mileage by about 2% per cent, aave been 
scorirg new records in earnings and activity. Mcre|

countries in the world put together. 



Baron Shibusawa, in the Forum. 

I do not say that the terms of peace ending our 
war with Russia were satisfactory. However, I do 
not wish to say that, because they were not as we 
wished them to be, the financial circles of our coun- 
try are about to be plunged into a sea of troubles 
Neither do I wish to harbor any such idea. From the 

very start, we did not take up arms that we might 
become enriched through an indemnity. From the 
beginning. we knew very well that it would be diffi- 

cult indeed to drive our enemy to the foot of his 
citadel and compel him to see the wisdom of con- 
cluding the “peace under the castle.”’ More than 
onve—and thig from the very opening of the war— 
we were in doubt whether, after all, the war would 
bring us anything like an adequate compensation for 
the expenditure. It would be out of tune with all 
things, therefore, for us,.at this hour, to be looking 
upon finaneial Japan after the war with a sad eye. 
Nevertheless, as we are well aware of the disturb- 
anees which the war has prought to our finances, 
we must look to the best possible measures for re- 
storing to health and prosperity what the war has 

disturbed. That is all.

the following report comes from Consul-General 
Guenther of Frankfort, Germany: vA 

in late years the hygienic requirements with refe 
ence *o barber shops have been greatly increasgd, 
and it seems that they are constantly becoming more 
severe. So far the authorities had restricted the 
rezulations to the’ utensils, but lately the personal 
cleanliness of the barber has aJso been made th 
subject of municipal legislation in Germany. Re- 
cently the fellowing rules have been established by 
the municipal - government of a larger German city:

who performs the same service ‘for the 4,000 gree 

jot the army. 

‘The cut-o”* hair must at once be removed; the floor 
of the shop must be washed at least twice per week; 
cold and hot running water must be supplied, and 
the barber raust wash his hands with warm -water 
before attending to a customer. No cretonne or Car- 
pets are pe:m'tted in barber’ shops.: The head rests 
must be covered for each customer with a fresh 
napkin of pape. or linen. The employes must wear 
clean. long upper garments of light color, without 
pockets. The soap used must be in form of powder 
er small tublets. 

The lather from razors must be removed by means 
of paper. Instead of sponges pieces of woolen clo. 
or napkins have to be used. Alum or mi-~esia can; 
only be used kept in a powder box. The bowls an.

Maurice Maeterlinck in the Atlantic. 
The goodwill of men is admirable. They are ready 
to abandon all their dreams and all their hopes of 
happiness. even as many of them have already aban- 
doned, without despairing, all their hopes beyond the 
tomb. They are resigned before hand to see their 
generations succeeding one another without an ob- 
ject, a mission, an horizon, a future, if such be the 
certain will of life. The energy and the pride of our 
conscience will manifest themselves for a last time 
in th's acceptation and this adhesion. But, before 
reaching this stage, before abdicating so gloomily, it 
is right that we should ask for proofs; and, hitherto, 
these seem to turn against those who bring them. 
In any case, nothing is decided. We are still in sus- 
pense. Those W ho assure us that the old moral ideal 
must disappear because the religions are disappearing 
are strangely mistaken. It was not the religions 
that formed this ideal, but the ideal that gave birth’ 
to the religions. Now that these last have WHEREEAG | 
or disappeared, their sources survive and seek an- 
other channel. When all fs said, with the exception of 
certain factitious and parasitic virtues which we 
naturally abandon at the turn of the majority of re- 
ligions, there is nothing as yet to be changed in our 
old Aryan ideal of justice, conscientiousness, courage, 

kinaness and honor. We have only to draw nearer to 
it, to clasp it more closely, to realize it more effective- 
ly; aud before going beyond it, we have still a long 
and noble road to travel beneath the stars, 


From the Prescott Miner. 

John Bezarth, the well-known cattle man from the 
Camp Wool country, had a rather lively experience 
with 2 bear near Loco Creek about ten days ago. 
Wile on a ride he sighted Bruin and gave chase. 

After running him a considerable distance the bear 
showed fight and cut a gash in the flank of his horse 
about four inches in length. He threw his lariat. 

which landed around the neck of the bear, and had 
him choked to death in short order. He states that a 
is just as easily choked with @ rope as a steer, 
especially when the bear is fat. 

It weighed 8 pounds and was of the silver-tip }

Jack «Broughton, 1740-1760, 


Probably Did More to Promote the 

Welfare of Boxing Than Any Other Man—Bill Stevens, 
the. Nailer, Was the First Recorded Crook. 


Jack. Broughton, the Grayssend water- 
man, who was the fourth boxing cham- 
pion of England and the world 
1750, was the most pre-eminent o 
early masters of the arena. He was 
only the most skillful and courageou? 
boxer’ of his times, he was also the 
deepest. thinker. Broughton was the 
originator of a set of rules for 

the conduct of fistic contests. Prints of 

the time say of them: ‘“‘These rules were 
produced by Mr. Broughton for the bet- 
ter regulation of the amphitheater, ap- the gentlemen and agreed to 
by tha pugilists, Aug. 18, 1743."" The 
edicts of the early Napoleon of the 
ring ehdured longer than the laws of 
the famous Code Napoleon. Until the 
fight between Owen Swift and Brighton 
Sill, in 18388, when the New Rules of the 
Ring superseded them, Broughton’s 
rules géverned all pugilistic contests. 

Early Fights Were Very Rough. 

Prior*‘to the promulgation of Brough- 
ton's rules a deal of Jatitude was al- 
lowed in fights. In various parts of 
England, particularly Lancashire, what 
was known as up and down fighting 
frequently occurred. As the title im- 
plies, ‘these fights were rough and tum- 

.ble affairs. Biting, gouging,. kicking, 
purring (kicking a man when down) and 
all other rough and tumble methods 
prevailed. Hence it is to this man 
Broughton that English-speaking na- 
tions’ 6we what is known as “‘fair fight- 
ing,’ no hitting below the belt or when 
% man is down, no kicking, gouging or 
anything save fair wrestling and strik- 
ing with the closed fist. 

To. Broughton must be ascribed two 
great reforms which did much to pop- 
ularize fighting. One was the introduc- 
tion of fair play, the other that of the 
boxing»sglove. The fair stand-up box- 
ing and ‘wrestling made the, fights en- 
durable to men of delicate sensibilities, 
while the introduction of the glove fa- 
cilitated practice and made easy indulg- 
ence .{p.the art of boxing. Gentlemen 
who eovfld not afferd to box with bare 
knuckles owing to danger of bruises 
and fraetures, took up boxing when the 
glove .wes invented. Prior to the in- 
vention™of the mitten, boxing could be 
learned-only by | fighting with bare 
knuckle®, ‘This restrained its practice 
and deyelopment. 

Proughton Highly Regarded. 

Broughton probably stood higher in 
public and private regard than any 
pugilist save, perhaps, Gully. He was 

 ' beloved body guard of the Bloody 
Duke~ of Cumberland,. the Butcher of 
Culladen, who made him a member of 
the Yeomen of the Guard to the King. 
It is related that. he accompanied the 
Dukerto Berlin and stood by his side 
when’ he accompanied Frederick the 
Great at a review of the famous Prus- 
sian ‘Grenadiers, the seven-footers of 
which the monarch was so proud. Be- 
ing familiar with Broughton’s physical 
prowess, the King asked him which of 
the soldiers he would find most trouble 
hea ting. ‘Your Majesty,’’ replied 
Broughton, “I will engage to whip the 
entire regiment at the rate of one man 
a day, and I will do it before my break- 
fast*every morning.” 

No §ighter, not even Sullivan, enjoyed 
such Wistinguished friends and general 
populatity as Broughton, and none of 
them-appears to have more fully de- 
served the esteem in which he was 
held. Temperxute,. clever, handsome and 
courteous, he must have been a very 
‘superior man for his station in life. 
- Alas, like all of his ilk, young and old, 
,ancient.and modern, he fought the fatal 
“once too often, 

. Fell Afoul of Slack. 

With the confidence with many a 
‘yvietory.and an assured station brings 
-Broughton despised his antagonists. One 
, day he» fell afoul of Jack Slack, the 
, Norwich, butcher, who previously fell 
‘@ victim to George Taylor, who had 
(been beaten by the Waterman. Brough- 
‘ton threatened to horsewhip Slack. The 
i butchér challenged and put up a for- 
'feit. «Broughton accepted in disdain. 
‘Not having fought for some years, he 
‘ train. Slack, a tremendous 
hitter, nailed him between the cyes ear- 
‘ly in the fignt: The flesh helng soft 
,end flabby, Broughton’s eyes were im- 
mediafély closed. Slack took advantage 

/o@ thie his good-fortune and beat the 
-nonpa¥ell In 14 minutes. 
_ ‘The Bloody. Duke was. much put out 
(by th® result. It is said that he lost 
960,000 on. the fight and’ was much an- 
-gere@ By his loss. The Seotch, whom 
‘he batchered at Culloden, always 
claimed that he was =n arrant coward. 
The il grace. with which he took the 
lose of: his money lends credit to this 
assertion. Brave -men-are never bad 
lovers? . Further, Cumberland accused 
| Brouchton of throwing the fight, an as- 
-gertion for which no good ground coula 
“be four. : 

In this infamous: prince cruelty, cow- 
-ardice and squealing seem to have ef- 
‘fected,@ complete union.’ He was 2 poor 

sportsmian. “The Duke never spoke t» 
Brougpton again. Further, he had his 

yxing school closed. The old fellow 
never fought again. He had Invested his 
moneyrin real estate and was quite a 
financier. He died. in 1789 in his house 
at Watt place, Lambeth, aged $3 years, 
and Worth $85,000, huge sum in those 
days. | x a ia ae 

Unquestionably Broughton was one of 

the &réutest ornaments of the ring. Fis 
ules and nseiul inventions have been 
- Yecorded here, He was a brave man

Sg LO 

Sfp rds, 

ting boxer, probably the most power- 
ful slugger of the early ring. So power- 
ful was his hiiting that a hard blow ol 
any kind became known asa ‘‘Slack’”’ or 
a “‘slack’un.”’ 

Slack first used the ‘‘chopper,’’ or 
overhand blow, which is delivered by 
bringing the fist to the breast and de- 
scribing a half circle over an opponent's 

hit him in the face. It is a 
but most ineffective 

troughton thought so little of Slack 
that he bet him $250 he would not enter 
the ring with him. Slack won the 
money and bet it against $5 of Brough- 
ion’s that he would win. Jack was evti- 
dently a game fellow, with confidence 
in h#nself. Billy Brady bet Charile 
Mitchell that he would not get into the 
ring with Corbett at Jacksonville. Mitch- 
ell won, but did not bet the money. 

Broughton was much cleverer. than 
Slack. In the first two minutes of fieht- 
‘ng the betting was 10 to 1 on him. This 
is where the Duke of Cumberland got 
in bad. 

Receipts Small in Early Days. 

It is worthy of remark that, in these 
days of~ $60,000 gates, that the receipts 
of the Broughton-Slack fight for the 
champions of the world were only $2500 
some that the winner cleared but $3000 all 

After beating Broughton Slack fought 
all over the English provinces. He had 
& loug rough and tumble fight with 
a French strong man named Petit at 
Hariston, Norfolk, in which he was 
thrown off the stage ten times. The 
betting was ten to one against him when 
he turned the tide and with a rare ham- 
mering made the Frenchman quit. He 
got $50 for his trouble. 

The virtue of what’s in a name is 
illustrated by a story told of a fight 
between Slack and a rustic he ran foul 
of at a country fair. The farmer was 
quarrelsome and hit the champion, 
whom he did not know, in the face. A 
ring Was made and they went at. it. 
The plowman was giving the boxer a 
rare hiding when Slack, half in dismay 
and half in wonderment, apostrophised 
himself thus: ‘“‘What are you about 
Jack Slack? Shall it be said that a 
farmhand has beaten you, the champion 
of the world?’ 

The name, if not the man, bore ter- 
ror to the heart of the pugnacious clod- 

“Wot,” he cried, ‘‘Bee’st Oi foightin’ 
wi Jack Slack? Ol'll ha’ no more on'’t 
im.’" Straightway he quit the fight he 
had been winning. 

In 1755 Slack beat Cornelius Harrls, 
a collier of Bristol, in 20 minutes of 
hard fighting. In 1750 he beat one More- 
ton at Acton Wells for $250 aside after 
a good fight of 45 minutes’ duration. 
Stevens, the Nailer, Champion, 1760. 

The 16 years after Slack had beaten 
Broughton saw him undisputed cham- 
pion of the world. The decade, how- 
ever, seems to span the life of the or- 
dinary prizefighter. In-.1760 Bill Ste 
vens, the Nailer, beat Slack. Stevens 
was a rare hitter. He was backed by 
the Duke of York, while the Duke of 
Cumberland put up for Slack. They met 
at the Haymarket, June 17, 176. Ste- 
vens, a great blocker, stopped all 
Slack’s blows with his left and knocked 
Jack’s head off with his right. Thus 
fell the mighty Butcher. The Duke of 
Cumberland was disgusted by his sec- 
ond losing. The Duke of York, herein 
mentioned, was an uncle of George III. 

Judging as best one can from the 
careful. and lenient writings of the 
early pugilists’ chroniclers, this Stevens 
is about the first recorded fake of the 
ring. It developed until Stevens fought 
and lay down to George Megegs. Slack 
trained Meggs and evidently framed the 
fight. Without receiving a blow, Slevens 
quit. The affair was traced to Slack. 
Stevens acknowledged having received 
$250 to lie down. ‘‘Lor’ biess ‘ee,”’ said 
the shameless Bill. “Oi got but nointy 
pun’ for beating Slack. ’Ere Oi picks 
hup one ‘unnerd an’ fifty for letting 
Garge beat me. And, bli’ me, oin’t Of 
the same mon yet?’’ 

This reminds one of Ike Weir's fa- 
mous couplet after he lay down to 
Australian Billy Murphy in San Fran- 

Down went the Spider, 

Hard against the floor. 
And when he got up 

He had more money 
Than ever he had before, 

Died in Disgrace. 

Slack, who returned to Norwich and 
butchering. when beaten by Stevens. 
prospered until he died in 1778. Stevens 
won and lost and faked fights and died 
in poverty and disgrace. He fought 
Bill Taplin in 1760 in Marylebone Basin 
before 3000 spectators. It was a terri%c 
fight and Stevens won with a knock- 
out blow on the temple. He had few 
fights and no backers after his fake 
with Meggs. In 1769 he fought and beat 
McGuire, an Irish boxer. near Montane 
House. He was beaten by, or lay down 
to, an obscure fighter named Turner 
in 1769. His final battle and defeat was 

at the hands of Harry Sellers in 17738. 

The date of his death !s not certain. 


The Cincinnati club has gone out of 
the philanthropic business. President 
Herrmann has found that baseball] mag- 
nates, like republics, -are not over- 
stocked with gratitude. His good deeds 
in allowing Detroit to have Sam Craw- 
ford, turning Jake Beckley, William 
Kellum and Spike Shannon over to St. 
Louis, and a few other acts of the San- 

ta Claus order, brought him nothing in 
the way of reciprocal kindness, and so 
he has decided that in the future it will 
be Herrmann for Cincinnati, and the 
others take care of themselves. That is 
the reason why the head of the Reds 
places the veto on the story sent out 
trom.New York that the Cincinnati club 
was doing the sackcloth-and-ashes act 
for having taken Ned. .Hanlon away 
from Brooklyn, and would offer the 
Superba management an atonement in 
the shape of First Baseman Charlie 
Carr, free from all = incumbrance. 
“Nothing to the story,” said President 
Hierrmann, when asked whether he was 
piaying Kriss Kringle to the Brooklyn 
club. “We are not in the donation busi- 
ness these days, but ‘simply are looking 
out.for our own interests. Carr look 
like a promising man -to us, and so we’! 
hold onto him. I feel that we are under 
an obligation to make any sort of repera- 
tion to the Brooklyn club for singing 
Hanlon, It was a simple business prop- 
osition that brought him to Cincinati. 
He asked certain conditions from the 
Brooklyn club that were refused. The 
Cincinnati club made him a proposition 
that was satisfactory to him, and he 
signed with us. Weowe the Brooklyn 
club nothing, and certainly do not {»- 
tend to part with Charley Carr just be- 
cause Brooklyn may want him. If Man- 
ager Donovan has a good man whom he 
will offer for Carr we may talk busi- 
ness—but Carr certainly will not be a 
voluntary contribution on our part to 
the line-up of the Superbas,”

White Ash Makes the Best Framing for the Catgut—Must Under- 

go Fifty Distinct Operations Before the Little Imple- 
ment Is Quite Complete. 

To watch the making of a tennis 
racket, from the day the tree is felled 
in the forest to the time the finished 
product is ready for shipment is decid- 
edly interesting, especially so to those 
who have never given a thought as to 
the amount of skill and science required 
in turning out a racket that will please 
the most expert players in the world. 
The tennis racket is a simple-looking 

article, but, like the violin, it requires 

the most delicate workmanship and the 
most careful selection of the material 

used in the construction. 

Pawtucket, R. 1, is the home of the 
tennis racket industry in America. In 
the making of a racket the most im- 
portant operations are the bending of 
the stick into shape and the stringing 
of the bow. If the bend is not perfect 
in every detall, the stick might just as 
well be thrown away. On the other 
hand, if one string !s not as taut as 
the others, then the work of weeks is 
practically wasted. If the strings are 
not evenly strung and the men handling 
them are not experts, the racket j 
worthless. There are some 50 operations 
@ racket has to go through before it is 
ready for the market. 

Ash Best Wood for Racqucts, 

To look at a racket one would think 
that only a few hours is required in 
its construction; but when it is known 
that from six to eight weeks’ time is 
necessary to turn out a perfect racket 
one is naturally surprised. It is~possi- 
ble to turn out a racket in a few days’ 
time, but in order to have the wood 
thoroughly seasoned, etc., a longer pe- 
riod is necessary. The making of a 
racket does.not begin in the shop where 
it is finished, but in the great, foresis 
of New England, where the best of 
white ash grows. Ash has been proven 
by years of experience’to be the best 
wood for racket making. It is supe- 
tior to oak, elm and other woods, as it 
is not so brittle and has more spring 
and elasticity. The New England ash 
is preferable to either the Southern or 
Western growth. Only the. second 
growth ash is used, and, of each tree, 
only the last few years’ growth is sery- 
iceable for racket making. By this it 
will be seen that there is a vast amount 
of wast® in the rough wood. The trees 
must be young and the wood must be 
ivory white. Out of 7,000 feet cut, 
about 20,000 feet will be serviceable, Afi- 
er the. logs are sawed into planks the 
lutter are cut into strips about five feet 
six inches long and one. inch square. 
The wood is all quarter-sawed, so that 
the grain is perfectly even. After the 
stock is properly seasoned for a year in 
cool, dark sheds it is ready for ship- 
ment to the factory. On arriving there 
expert workmen sort and grade the 
sticks and they are run through a spe- 
cially constructed planing machine and 
planed to the proper thickness. This 
planer is so reguiated that the sticks 
do not vary in thickness the hundredt: 
part of an Inch. 

The bending operation, which Is one of 
thé most delicate and painstaking parts 
of the work, requires another special 
machine, It has a capacity of handiing 
30 sticks an *hour, with two men operat- 
ing the’machine. The inventing of this 
machine has been the means of reduc- 
ing the waste in the splitting and crack- 
ing of the sticks, when they are being 
shaped: into the bow, to a minimum 
Previous to the invention of this ma- 
chine the waste was about 25 per cent 
The sticks are bent after they have 
been steamed at the proper temnery- 
ture, and if care is not exercised in the 
nace | Operation the stock will split 
even if it is pliadle. After the stick is 
shaped over the mold, encased in cop- 
per bands (to .:revent the stick from 

rusting’’) and tnen fastened by cla 
room until thor- 

Te buy a Diamond. 

oughly seasoned. The temperature 1s 
kept at 100 to 110 degrees and the stick 
remuins in the dry room from eight to 
i2 days. A temperature higher than 
110 would cause the stick to lose its elas- 
‘icity. It will be seen that every stick, 
or bow as it may now be called, has a 
separate mold, set of clamps, bands 

2ic., so that in a factory, where 3,000 
rackets are made annually, it is neces- 
sary to have 2000 complete sets of molds, 
clamps and bands on hand constantly. 
These are, of course, of different shapes, 
and patterns, as this firm always carry 
in stock 25 different models which they 
manufacture. As in everything else 
style changes with the seasons and the 
firm is constantly adding new models to 
{ts stock. and in the majority of cases 
these new models are original with the 

Mahogany for Centerpiece. 

After the bow comes from the 
room, the center piece. which is usually 
black walnut or mahogany, is fitted. It 
is known as the five-piece wedge or 
throat piece. It is now used by all the 
racket makers in America, The piece 
b>tween th: ends of the handle is also 
set in place, Only the best French g:ue 
is used in this work. On high-grade 
rackets the bow and handle are 
strengthened by a reinforcement of light 
but tough rattan, terminating just above 
the throat piece. Although the glue 
would probab!y ho!d tne wedge in place, 
it is safe to make doubly sure of the 
strength of the racket; so a specially 
made screw is used in passing through 
the handle and wedge. This screw 1s 
of uniform thickness the entire length, 
and after it is placed, the head and end 
is removed, giving it the appearance of 
a peg. After the wedge and center 
piece are glued in position they are held 
by clamps and allowed to stand until 
the glue is thoroughly dry. Putting the 
bow through the buzz planer makes the 
racket perfectly true on one side, and 
then it is taken to another special plan- 
er, where it is p'aned to the exact thick- 
ness, three-fourths of an inch. It is 
then p!aced on a form board marked for 
the holes, and the drilling of these fol- 
lows. Great care must be exercised in 
this work. Holes of three different 
sizeg have to be drilled in the high- 
erate rackets. For years there was dif- 
ficu'ty experienced in securing a proper 
Grill to make the holes in the 
piece or wedge, but after much experi- 
menting Mr. Bancroft invented a drill 
machine that met 

Making of the Handles. 

The tapering of the handles is done by 
another machine built specially for this 
part of the work. If the handle were 
left in the present stage, that is wholly 
of ash, it would be too heavy. In order 
to lithten it and give the racket a bet- 
ter balance. the latter being very essen- 
tial in every racket, Spanish cedar strips 
are placed ‘on each side. This cedar is 
shipped from South America in planks 
from one-half. to two inches thick. 
These have to be sawed, nilaned, etc.,

had just returned from a trip and 
the boys went to their homes before 
going out to the park. In the after- 
noon Robison arrived at the park and 
tound on.reaching the dressing room 
that he had left his shoes at home. 
He did not live far from th® park and 
it was an easy task to dispatch a boy 
for them. 

“When half an hour had gone by and 
the lad did not return Robbie: began to 
furne and fret around. Pacing up and 
duwn the dressing room floor he yelled 
to the bat boy: 

‘Say. Lou, go down to the gate and 
wait there till that kid comes. Then 
grab those shoes and hustle them up 
here; I ought to be out practicing now.’ 

“The boy was gone about two min- 
utes* when he came rushing back. ‘Oh, 
Mr. Robison,’ he yelled, ‘the fellow’s 
been here with your shoes and the gate- 
keeper wouldn't let him in the gate. 
Said if he couldn't pay to get in he’d 
have to go back where he came from.’ 

‘Robbie was furious. He ran out of 
the dressing his stocking feet 
and sprinted for the gatekeeper, a big, 
fat German. 

“Say, you big boose wrapper,’ he 
screeched, “what did you send that 
kid away for? Why didn’t you let him 
in the gate?’ 

‘It vas Mister Von der Ahe’s orders,”’ 
responded the gatekeeper, stoically. 

“Yes, but hadn’t you better sense?’’ 
roared the infuriated Robinson. ‘I have 
to have those shoes or I can't play in 
today’s game. Where is Von der Ahe?’’ 

The old Boss was not far away; in- 
deea, he was hurrying to join the crowa 
that had gathered, and was waiting 
open-mouthed. watching Robbie call 
down the gatekeeper. 

Robinson spied Chris. ‘Look here,” 
he yelled, gesticulating fiercely. “You 
sot me in a deuce of a pickle with your

rage. ‘Well, let me tell 
you something. I don’t play in today's 
game unless I get those shoes; do you 
hear? Now you can make the best of 
that bargain.”’ 

“Ts that so?’ asked Chris. “‘Well, let 
me tel’ you something, my fine fellow. 
You will hunt yourself another pair of 
shoes and get in that game, or it will 
cost you $50.”’ 

“I don't care if it costs me $50,000” 
rejoined Robinson, “I don't play until 
I get my shoes.”’ 

“You will not only play,” said Von 
der Ahe, “but you will apologize to this 
gateman or I will fine you $100 and sus- 
pend you until you do.” 

‘Well, then do it.”" sneered the player 
and he walked to his- dressing room, 
donned his clothing and departed for 

“The next day the papers were full of 
criticism of Von der Ahe's hasty action, 
but the old Boss would not relent. The 
storm of public opinion in Robinson's 
favor seemed to gather, however, and 

1 in three days the whole town was torn 

up about the matter, and the attend- 
ance at Sportsman’s Park actually fell 
to one-half its former figures. 

“Then came the disastrous trip that 
some say was fraught with defeat be- 

cause the players wanted to show that!

Robinson must be back in the line-up. 

‘‘Kansas City was visited and four 
games were dropped to a club that 
never had any license to win a single 
game from the old Browns. Three out 
of five were dropped to Columbus, and 
in short the Browns, the four-time win- 
ners, won but) two games during the 
whole of that fatal two weeks. 

“The players were in the sulks and the 
public apparently were going to meet 
the team at the Union Derot on their 
arrival in St. Louis, take Von der Ahe 
out of the party and string him up to 
a telegraph pole. 

The night before the team started for 
home, Von der Ahe announced that he 
had reconsidered the Robinson matter 
and that he had made up his mind to 
remit the fine and suspension, as he 
thought it was for the good of the

FLORENCE, Jan. 6.—An extraordinary 
case of appurent death has startled the 

people of Casellina Torri, near here. A 
villager, aged 48, after a severe iliness. 
apparently expired and was conveyed 
to the Church of St. Giusto by a torch- 
light proceésion, followed by his deso- 
late wife, sons and a crowd of friends. 
Service over the corpse was left in the 
sanctuary for the night. About 2 a. m. 
the “dead” man awoke, burst open the 
coffin lid and, forcing the chureb doors, 
ran through the streets in his death 
shroud, shouting wildly all the way to 
his cottage, His kinfolk, beileving them- 
selves face to face with an apparition, 
were at first so terrified that they re- open the door. In the neigh-~ 
burhood this is believed to be a verita- 
wie resurrection from the dead.

“There was a sudden change in the 
temperature on the great day and the

possessed a white shirt and he

The post of story teller to a toothless, 
querulous old man is a novel occupa- 
tion in this day and generation, and is 
somewhat akin to that 
in the good old days in the French and 
English courts. 

Due to the fact that there was no es- 
tablished precedent nor scale of pay 
for this peculiar service, Capt. Ijams 
Was at a loss to estimate the value. 

He was engaged four years 
Mr. Brokaw to be his companion 
to keep him amused. 

The first two yvears were put in as a 
visitor to the Brokaw homestead, the 
veteran calling daily and recalling some 
reminiscences of the pioneer days. 

After the death of Mrs. Brokaw two 
years or more before the close of Mr. 
Brokaw's career, Capt. Ijams was 
asked to spend his entire time with the 
old man. He did so and was his con- 
stant companion until the end. 

‘Nothing had been said about remun- 
eration, but Capt. Ijams and everybody 
else supposed that the will would re- 
member the old soldier handsomely. 

But alas for Capt. Ijams’ hoes! 
There was “nothing doing.’’ 

Not Even a Kind Thought. 



5 Not even a kind thought was left to 

the doughty Captain. The forgetfulness, 
to use a mild word, of the 
was sufficient to arouse the ire of even 
& man of peace. 

When his friends insisied that he sue 
the estate for remuneration for his 
Services, he was at first reluctant to 

e* do so. When he thought, however, of 


the four years that he had devoted to 
the comfort and entertainment of the 
old plowmaker, he decided that his 
friends. were right, and he filed a claim 
in the County Court for $9500. 

The case will be argued in a few 
weeks and the outcome will be watched 
with a vast deal of interest throughout 
the country. 

Capt. ljams has a war record of which 
any man might be proud. He served 


of court jester : 

He then found an old horse on whith ' 

ne rode 129 miles further, finally reach- 

ing home 
Thought It a Good Place. 

His feat one of the most notable 
instances of pluck and endurance on the 
records of the war. 

Since the war, Capt. 
cupied public offices 


liams has 

of various kinds 

; and, of late years, has engaged in the 
| real estate business. He is 63 years 

of age and money does not come to 
him so freely as in former years when 
the record of his valiant deeds was 
fresh in the public mind. 

He seized the offer of Mr. Brokaw to 
become his companion, as a fortunate 
one, with sufficient remuneration to en- 


tie served the old man faithfully and 
well. He was with him night and day. 
When in a reverential mood Capt. Ijams 
would read chapters and entire books 
from the Bible. 

If the good old times in Mclean Coun- 
ty when Mr. Brokaw same to this vi- 
cinity were recalled then Capt. Ijams 
would rack his memory and erind out 
incident after incident. 

He estimated that he told fully 1000 
stdries. He admits that he repeated some 
of them at various times as Mr. Bro- 
kaw's memory was poor in his declin- 
ing days and he did not recognize that 

the same story had been told to him 

{ before. 

He would sit back in the old arm 
Chair and shake with laughter when 
Capt. Ijams would retail some particu- 
larly humorous event of the pioneer era. 

The early settlers had many amusing 

experiences and Capt. ljams was for- 
tunate in possessing a retentive mem- 
ory and an apparently § inexhaustible 
stock of stories that were «af interest 
to the old man.

Among the $10 stories related by 

Capt. Ijams to Mr. Brokaw was the 
following, just as told by the captain: 

“One of the old-time lawyers at the 
McLean County bar was Josiah Lam- 
burn, @ quaint eccentric practitioner of 
old school. In the early fifties, 

Sieuline a hat out of a retail store. 

'Hle proved the venue, the taking, the 
‘value of the goods taken, which was 

“5, and then rested. 

‘This Was grand larceny under the 
statutes, but to steal goois of a value 
less than that sum constituted petit 
larceny with a much milder punish- 

“The defense proved by the owner 
of the goods stolen that $5 was the 
retail price of the hat, but the whole- 
sale price which he paid for it. was 
only $4, and, of course, the defense 
contended this smaller sum must be 
the measure of value in order to save 
the client from the Penitentiary. 

“A very learned argument was made 
on this point. 

“Lamburn’s re’ly was short, to the 
point and characteristic of the man.

If eithe:

his crutch—

men, we would have had to pay $5 for 
it, the retai] price, but this scoundre!] 
thinks that because he stole he hat 

e ought to be allowed to « so at 
ihe wholesale price, 

“The jury brought in a verdict of 
guiltv of grand larceny without leay- 
ing their seats.” 

Here is another: 

“One of the early legislatures passed 
an act authorizing the laying out of a 
state road from Springfield te CWhicago. 
Three commissioners were appointed to 
locate the highway, Jacob Spawr of this 
county, being one of them. 

“The act required that the commis- 
sioners be sworn. When they met in 
this city to organize. they found that 
they were a long way from the proper 
officer authorized to administer 
the oath. ‘ 

Swore Himself In, 

Spawr was then justice of the 
peace and, with the genius worthy of a 

Webster, he administered the oath to his 


fellow commissioners, and then, taking 

the lid of a shoe box which. had a glass 
inside, and holding u” the mirror in 
front of his face with one hand and, 
at the same ‘° -e holding up his right 
hand, he adn tered the oath to him- 
self, and thus the three became duly 
constituted to locate the most impor- 
tant public highway in the early history 
of the State.”’ 

Capt. Ijams thinks this one was worth 
more than $10: 

“In the early forties a man by the 
name of Miller, a resident of New York, 
became a very earnest preacher and 
claimed that the world would shortly 
come to an end. He had more than 5),- 
000 followers of whom many were in 
Central Illinois. Finally the day came 
that was fixed for the end of this terres- 
trial, sphere. Many had their shrouds 
already prepared, so firm was their be- 
lief. A mah and his wife who lived 
along the placid Mackinaw, were among 
the believers, but one of the older boys

bridge followed the plans first proposed 
and advocated by Vice-President Clarke 
and General Manager A. W. Sullivan 
of the Missouri Pacific, after it was 
seen what an important feature in the 
traffic interests of the Gould System is 
the recently completed Iinois Divisjon 
to Valley Junction in East St. Louis. 

Over the line, which has a water 
grade for its full length of 175 miles. 
the powerful freight engines in use on 
the Iron Mountain -road can draw 4

equivalent of hauling twice’the amount 
of freight with the same number of en- 
gines and crews. il 

The early months of 185 saw the plans 
gompleted by the Ir6n Mountain ana 
Missouri Pacific for a gigantic inter- 
change fre'ght yard at the 
terminus of the new Lllinols division 
of the Iron Mountain, and a tract of 
land four miles wide and eight miles 
long, adjoining imm:d’ately west the 
right of way of the Illino's division. 
across the river from the north end of 
South St. Louls, Was purchased for the 
improvement. Upon this traet, the en- 
gineering denartment of the two roads 
designed the most extensive gravity

construction of 600 mi'es of track, 2%

For instance, an Iron Mountain train 
of 60 cars comes In froin ‘he Ssuth. there 
being 20 cars in the train for three con- 
necting roads. The train is pushed up 
a jong incline to a level and as each

just as it run all over the country in hot weather. 
what a tremendous success it is! 

I next invented the Trolley Car System, just as it is run today. I made it perfect 
and suecesstul right from the start. It has never been improved since I invented it. 
Look at the millions of money it has made for the stockholders. The stock in the trolley 
manufacturing companies sold below 15 cents a share in 1893 and 1894. Poor men 
could buy that stock then. Thousands of t hem did buy it and every one who held onto 
it is a rich man today. 

No Man on Earth Ever Lost a Penny He 
Invested With Me. 

Next I invented the Railway Car Telephone System which is now being installed 
on the Southern Pacific Railroad. Itisa system by which passengers or tr ain crews ean 
telephone from still or moving cars anywh ere the same as if seated in an office. It is a 
more perfect system in operation than any other telephone you ever saw. This 1s on 
the road toward millions for the stoeckhold ezs. 

This Is My Greatest Invention. 

Now I have invented something bigger and greater than either of the above. It is 
called the Bidwell Cold Motor. It is guara nteed not to burn out and is exactly the kind 
of a motor the steam railway people have been looking for. It will change all the steam

Walsh Believes Once Great 
Englishman’s Day of Power 
Is Gone. 



Indications Are the Notorious 
Castle Dublin Power Is 


Some editorial writers for the Ameri- 
can press evidently think that the in- 
fluence Lord Rosebery in the Lib- 
eral party will counteract any attempt 
that may be made by the leaders of that 
organization to give Ireland legislative 
independence. They overlook the fact 
that Rosebery is not the man he was 
in English politics a dozen years ago, 
that he is really not a Liberal at all, 
put a stanch supporter, in theory at 
least, of the program of the Conserva- 
tive party regarding Irish affairs. 

He is a Unlonist first, last and all 
the time, and whenever the occasion 
arises he will be found in the same 
eamp with Chamberlain and Balfour. 
The fact that he has been completely 
ignored in the formation of the new 
Liberal Government indicates the opin- 
ion of him held by the leaders of the 
Liberal party. 

Whatever influence Rosebery may 
possess will be exerted in the House of 
Lords, which holds the same relation 
to the House of Commons that the Sen- 
ate of the United States does to the 
National House of Representatives. It 
is quite possible that the House of 
Lords may veto any measure creating 
an independent Irish Legislature, but it 
will be dangerous to the very existence 
of that heavy organization to oppose 
the expressed will of the British people 
as voiced by the Commons. 

Only a few years ago there was a 
sturdy cry all over England against the 
House of Peers, and stranger things 
have happened in English history than 
the abolition of this useless and arbi- 
trary organization of lawmakers. 


Campbell-Bannerman’s Consistency. 

There also seems to be a disposition 
in the minds of certain American writ- 
ers to decry the pubiic statements of 
Campbell-aBnnerman as far as they 
relate to Irish affairs, some suggesting 
that he is merely an opportunist, others 
saying that no matier now friendly he 
may feel towards Ireland, he will be 
unable to earry out his proSram. 

This is merely guessing. Nobody can 
accuse Campbeil-Bannerman of ambig- 
uity or inconsistency in his Irish declx- 
rations. For the last 20 years in the En- 
glish Parliament and out of it, he has 
been a fearless advocate of the right 
of Ireland to practical autonomy. A 
public man can only be fairly judged by 
his public acts, and certainly those of 
Campbell-Bannerman have been clear 

ind unmistakable as far as they Treiate: 

to Ireland. In his most recent speech, 
delivered at the Albert Hall, London, he 
said: “The principle of self-government 
and popular control was the foundation 
of the Goverment’s Irish policy. Those 
domestic affairs which concerned the 
Irish alone should, and when the op- 
portunity offered would, be placed in 
their hands.’’ 
This is fairly explicit langauge. 

Lid for Dublin Castle. 

Whether Ireland gets a native Parlia- 
ment or not in the near future, and 
the prospects are decidedly in her favor, 
Dublin’ Castle at all events will be 
shorn of its autocratic and tyrannical 
power. This institution has been the 
course of: Ireland for centuries. It has 

center and chief support o 
alienism in that land, and nothing tha 
‘human ingenuity could suggest has be 
omitted to make Ireland a land of pof- 
erty and perpetual discontent. Ine 
sense of the word it was unrepr 
tive in character. 

Its officilais, who are exc 
merous and extravagantly pai@& a 
ecruited from bankrupt Irish landlords 
and English military pensioners, none 
of whom have any sympathy whatever 
with the people, but are in total igno- 
rance of the social and economic condi- 
tions of the people. Dublin Castle is 
simply there to do garrison duty, and 
there 1s no question that it has effec- 
tively done its work. 

Under its regime Irish industries have 
been destroyed, its people robbed in 
excessive taxation, an its people 
dwindled by one-half in less than 50 

The day Dublin Castle is squelched 
will be a happy one for Ireland. Luck- 
ilv it does not require an act of Par- 
liament to deprive it of its power. An 
executive order by the Lord Lieuten- 
ant and Chief Secretary is all that wil: 
be necessary, and as the Ear! of Aber- 
deen and James Bryce fill these posi- 
tions, respectively, we may safely con- 
clude that the end of Dublin Castle is 

near. : 

This will be a fitting prelude to a 
native parliament in Coilege Green. And 
when once this infamous institution is 
destroyed we may rest assured that it 
will never be revived. 

Every decent Englishman and Scotch- 
man that had anything to do with the 
Dublin Castle government of _ Ireland 
returned ;to their own land disgusted 
with the condition of affairs. The late 
Sir Robert Hamilton, Under-Secretary 
for Ireland, and a Scotchman, said: 
“Tf my country were governed on the 
lines adopted in Ireland it would not 
take two years to produce a rebellion.’ 
For this frank expression of opinion 
Sir Robert was relegated to the gover- 
norship of Tasmania. 

Labouchere’s Retirement, 

The retirement of Henry Labouchere 
from Parliament will be a severe blow 
to Ireland. He was one of her stanch 
est and most consistent friends, and his 
presence in the new assembly whic! 
will be elected this month would be e« 
source of great strength to John Red. 
mond and his friends. 

Dr. Hyde its having a most success. 
ful visit in New York, his meetings be- 
ing largely attended and his speeches 
eliciting the greatest enthusiasm.

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 6.—The Canal 
Commission has decided that its labor-

being organized here to furnish music 
on the isthmus. 

Just how the band is to aid in dig-

the union.

Premier Denies Disaffection Is 
Gaining Strength, Though 
He Admits Spread. 

Special Cable to the Post-Dispatch and 
New York Worid. 

ST. PETEHKSBURG, Jan. 6.—Count 
Witte apparently retains his fullest 
confidence in Russia, and in his ability 
as Premier to restore the country. He 
has given out the following remarkable 
—in apparent faith if not in Iogic—inter- 
view through which he hopes to quiet 




fears abroad. 

To a request for a general statement 
of affairs for abroad, he said: 

“Any fear is groundless, All impar- 
tial and competent judges believe this 
with me. It is only those who have 
not enough faith who think of the Rus- 
sian disintegration. They judge by 
anology. They think that because a 
thing has happened i100 years ago it 
will happen again. They are mistaken.

Great Linen Sale Grows Better 

N°? woman with a single linen requirement can afford to miss this sale. The fact that the linens in- 
volved are the very finest obtainable, and that the prices quoted are half actual values, 1s surely 

an inducement. 

A word of warning. Linens may not be so cheap in years as they are now. Russia, the producer of two-thirds of 
the world’s flax supply, has exported scarcely half its usual amount this year. Prices are soaring rapidly. If you 

buy now you're insured against the rise. So

So States Another Grateful Parent in Regard to 

TTR’ Ss 

inlass Cure of Mouth-Breathing 

ST. LOUIS. December 9, 1905. 
Dr. Martin M. Ritter, 
Star Bldg., St. Louis. 
Dear Doctor Ritter: 

As a happy and relieved parent, I 
feel that I want to express a few 
words of thanks to you for the won- 
derful good you have done my Kttle 
boy in so short a time. From a haby 
he has been puny and delicate; he 
never enjoyed restful sleep, and on ac- 
count of not being able to breathe 
right, we were always afraid of his 
choking. Since you removed the 
growth from his throat, I can hardly 
express the relief it is to us to see 
the little fellow sleep quietly, breathe 
nicely through his nose and to see him 
improving every day. I must reiterate 
my first expression, doctor, that 
“such skill is a gift.’" No amount of 
practice, it seems to me,. could ac- 
Oh, a complish such wonderful results. To 

NE RE | remove such a large growth, with ab- 

; sohitely no pain to the patient, is 

simply marvelous. As one who fs in- 
terested in all children who suffer, I

Sarbh Ann Legg, Convicted of. 

Killing Her. Husband,. Confi- 
dently Awaits Final Verdict 
From: Supreme Court of West 

CLAY, W. Va., Jan. 6. 

Jail that nestles on the hillside 

overlooking this town quietly sits 
a young woman, over whom the gallows 
casts its darkening shadow. 

She is Sarah Ann Legg, convicted of 
tne murder of her husband sentenced 
to suffer the extreme penalty. 

She calmly sits and reads as she con- 
fidently waits for the highest court of 
the State to "'ift the shadow and let 
in the sunshine of promised life. Her 
Jail life has given her the first oppor- 
tunity for extended reading, and she 
hails merrily visitors who will talk with 
her of the things she is now learning of 
for the first time. 

She is slight of figure—supple and 
svelte, not bony—with a voluptousness 
that is sometimes found in the women 
of slender frame, through whose veins 
anime! life runs in riotous course; her 
countenance is attractive withal, 
though her gray-blue eyeg have a bad 
habit of refusing open Minnie with 
those that challenge them, even with 
friendly interest. +l 

She completed her twenty-fifth year 
on the 12th day of last month, and 
she is the mother of two children, a 
girl, 7 years old the middle of June, and 
a boy 6 during the last days of the 
same month. 

A noticeable thing is in her hand. 

Though she comes from the lower walks 
of life—nay, the lowest—her hand is 
small and shapely, with an aristocratic 
taper to the finger, and the smooth 
rlumpness of a child’s. She easily 
thrusts it between the bars of her 
cell to shake hands with her callers.

Surplus Nearly Exhausted for 

First Time in Twenty- 
Five Years. 

$2,000,000 CASH LOSS 

Chaotic Condition of Last Tues- 
day’s Market Is 



Blunder in Ginners’ 

Causes Sharp Break 
in Cotton. 

By Leased Wire From the New York 
Bureau of the Post-Dispatch. 

NEW YORK, Jan. 6&—The Evening 
Post, in its weekly review the mar- 
kets today, says: 

Wall Street.—The important develop- 
ment of today’s financial market was 
the bank statement. It showed the New 
York surplus reserve be praciically 
exhausted, the $3,721,000 decrease report- 
ed for this week leaving only $571,000 in 
the fund. Incidentally, it may be .re- 
marked that nothing approaching this 
low figure has been reported in the ini- 
tlal bank statement of any January in 
the 2% past years. Such comparison 
is quite in line with the other compari- 
sons drawn out by the 60 per cent money 
rate of last Tuesday, und the per 
cent of last week. 

The possible redeeming feature of the 
abnormally weak bank position dis- 
closed by today’s report is that it may 
reflect rather the chaotic conditions of 
last Tuesday's market, with the 686,000,- 
(i drawn in checks on the New York 
hanks, than it does the conditions of the 
moment. For one thing, the $2,000,000 
loss In cash reported does not properly 
show the movement of the week. There 
has been, in reality, a trifling gain. On 
the other hand, the $3,600.000 increase in 
loans can hardly measure what must 
have taken place since the Stock Ex- 
change ‘‘boom’’ was renewed at midday 






The Stock Exchange greeted tha 
weak bank showing with a burst of 
activity and rising prices, but this 
procedure has now grown too familiar 
to attract more than passing notice 
During the two hours’. trading numer- 
Ous stocks rose a point or more, and 
both strength and activitv were at 
their, height in the half hour before 
the close. Anaconda moved in a char- 
acteristic way; it rose 13 points and 
thén fell 11. 

Probabiy the up»ermost question in 
minds of people watching the 
financial situation is: Will money 
rates now réturn to 2 snormal Ievel 

wand stay there? 

More Trouble tn Future. 

Again, it is safe to say that if the 
wealthy stock jobbers will give the 
Wall street market a breath'ng space, 
the strain will automatically relax. 
They have, however, shown no inten- 
tion Whatever of the kind. If they 
keep.up Friday's pace, prediction is 
d’ficult. We have possibly to reckon 
With a gold export movement in the 
not very distant future. And it is al- 
most absolutely certain that, in any 
case, the markets must face the mu- 
Sic again in March or May. 

In the numerous comments on Mr. 
Schiff's speech on Thursday, less. at- 
tention than was deserved has been 
paid to his positive declaration that 
the Treasury is bound to plax in our 
money market the paternal rdle as- 
sume? in Lombard street bv the’ Bank 
of England. Not only does Mr. Schiff 
aS8sert that. under the existine sys- 
tem, the Treasury ought to ' lay that 
but he Yelieves that it cannot 
help doing so. It must, in other 
words, draw money out of the market 
when a plethora exists, and restore it 
When:the market tightens, It is 
doubtfrl if the formal assignment of 
Such duties to the Secretary of the 
Treasury will meet with general ap- 
proyval. z 

The sum of the matter is that, grant- 
Such as Mr. 
Schiff depicts, we should be fairly on 
the high road to such. seanda!s as 
should make the Wall street rold market 
eonspiracy of 1869 seem feeble by com- 
parison. The native shewdness which 
made Secretary Shaw perceive what the 
Situation really was, when the gamblers 
and manipulators were pulling at his 
Skirts a few weeks ago, might not al- 
Ways serve a public officer. 

Grain Prices Lower. 

Grain—Lower price levels obtained in 
ail grain markets today, but especially 
in wheat, which ‘broke sharply, owfng 
to further reports of heavy Armour 
selling in Chicago, notwithstanding en- 
couraging cable advices, foreign mar- 
kets being influenced by frost in India 
and the light world’s shipments. There 
was practically nothing doing in the lo- 
cal corn ring, and the variations were 
decidedly slow, although a weaker feel- 
ing Wus noticeable in sympathy with 
the West. Late in the session the mar- 
ket was dull and sluggish, with trifling 

Exporters have fair orders for wheat 
and all coarse grains, but a free trade 
is checked ‘by the stronger claims of 

Cotton—The cotton market broke 
sharply todav, starting with a deeline 
of 5 te 7 points at the opening on gen- 
eral Hquidation and endine weak at 
the bottom at a net decline of 26 
points throughout the list of ontions, 
with March an the basis of 11.42. May 
11.55 and Julv 11.42.. This break was 
the result of weaker markete at Liv- 
erpool and the National Gin-se-s’ As- 
soclation's recent reports having been 
admitted to have been erroneous and 
ua fadrce. 

There never was such blunderinge in

(Oklahoma Republican Politicians Oppose 
Wolf Hunter Abernathy For Marshal but 
Don’t Dare Tell His Friend, the President 


oan CU 

Politicians All Realize It Would 
Be Hard to Make a Case and 
That Failure Would Mean 
Their Own Political Ruin. 

KLAHOMANS _ returning 
». Washington, are -.confident that 
President Roosevelt wishes, if 
possible, to give the United States Mar- 
Shaifship of Oklahoma to John R. Aber- 
nathy of Frederick, Comanche County, 
leader of the President's wolf hunt in 
the “Big Pasture’ in Southwestern 
Oklahoma last spring. 

Republican politicians in Oklahoma, 
regardless of their factional differences, 
are unfriendly to the appointment of 
Abernathy to such an important posi- 

He was unknown, save among his 
personal friends, prior to the coming 
of President Roosevelt last spring, and 
has no standing at home or territorially 
in Republican politics. 

This fact, however, 
number of Republican aspirants for of- 
fice and for prestige in Washington 
from giving Abernathy a general in- 
dorsement for “‘any position the Presi- 
dent might see fit to give him.” The 
statement had been made by Aber- 
nathy’s friends that President Roose- 
velt had told Abernathy that it might 
be possible to give him an appointment 
of some kind, and had suggested that 

_ - TS a 

Jan. 6. 

did not deter a 

ome we ae ee a 


Abernathy secure indorsements testify- 
ing as to his fitness for a position of 
trust. This statement was accepted by 
the men who indorsed him. 

After His Chief's Job. 

Armed with these credentials and con- 
fident of his standing in Washington, 
Abernathy grew active. 

Newspapers printed wonderful stories 
of his prowess as a wolf hunter, and 
Abernathy rose higher and higher inte 
view on this wave of publicity. 

Abernathy was appointed to the posi- 
tion of deputy by United States Mar- 
shal W. D. Fossett, a bit of supposed 
political strategy not misunderstood by 
persons who knew the desire of Federal 
officeholders in Oklahoma for reap- 

In time the story was told and 
nied that Abernathy would ask for 
Fossett’s place. It is alleged that he 
made the request in a different way, 
saying to President Roosevelt that he 
was not an applicant so long as Fossett 
was a candidate for reappointment, but 
that otherwise he would be pleased to 
get the appointment. He had indicat- 
ed, however, his choice of the official] 
»}plums in Oklahoma. 

Abernathy’s candidacy has reached 
the point where workers in the Repub- 
lican part in Oklahoma would like to 
declare openly thelr hostility to the 
appointment of Abernathy. 

But every active Republican in Okla- 
homa hesitates in doing anything tha 
might involve him in a controversy dis-

[ from Abernathy’s being a stranger in

biography as would fit 10,000 young men 
who lived in Western Texas and grew

Afraid to Lodge Charges. 

Charges detrimental to the fitness of 
men to hold office grow quickly in the 
warm, red of Oklahoma, and such 
charges have arisen against Abernathy. 
But of the men to him, not 
one has the temeri to lodge a com- 
plaint with President Roosevelt or 
veal his identity as an opponent of the 
President's supposed wishes concerning 

The Oklahoma affidavit-maker 
disrepute in Washing, and men who 
have hope of future greatness in the 
Territory are unwilling to run unneces- 
sary risks. Has anybody enough cour- 
age to go to the White House with 
charges against Abernathy, is a ques- 
tion that looms big in Oklahoma. | 
These are critical times in the fac- 
tional and personal fight for ascendancy 
in the Territory looking forward to 
statehood, and even if the. charges 
against Abernathy could be proved, and 
President Roosevelt would thank the 
man who preferred them, the task is 
a gratuitous undertaking that 
who would like talk to Presi- 
Roosevelt about Abernathy shrink 
attempting it.

Uncertainty Over Future Rates 
Causes the Bulls to 


Money has again been the dominating 
influence on the stock market, owing to 
the fact that interest rates in the East 
did not immediately decline with the 
passing of the New Year, and the dis- 
ribution of the January disbursements, 

It was pointed out in thi8 column last 
week that the opinion prevalent in cer- 
tain quarters that easy money rates 
would develop this week was erroneous. 
And although interest rates do show a 
decidedly eusier tendency, all indica- 
tions point to the fact that firm money 
will be experienced in all sections ol 
the country for some time to come. 

It is Unreasonable to expect that after 
the enormous extension of credits in the 
stock market in the last year and a half 
the tightness of foreign money _mMar- 
kets, the heavy demands from new mer- 
cantile and industrial enterprises caused 
by the existing prosperity in ‘the coun- 
try, that interest rates will reach tne 
former low level cf 2 or 3 per cent in 
many months to come. 

True, the return movement 
rency from the West may in the next 
month be ample’enough to give the 
Eastern bankers and financiers the Op- 
portunity to temporarily make interest 
rates very cheap and so facilitate the 
distribution of the burden of securities 
no doubt, will be the plan carried out, 
but the easy money rate will be ficti- 
tious and of short duration if the signs 
of the times are correct. 

Four Years Ago. 

oniy to compare the present 
and money market with 
that of four years ago to find ample 
grounds for the belief that an exces- 
sively easy money market is out of the 
question in the near future. 

It wiil be re membered that preceding 
the big buil movement of 1901 and 19v2, 
that money Was a drug on the market, 
and interest rates in the neighborhood 
of 14g per cent. Then came the upward 
movement in the stock market, which 
Kept pace with the improved conditions 
that developed in the industrial and 
busihess world. Prosperity reigned as 
now; stocks were carried up violently; 
new enterprises sprung up, crops were 
abundant and required enormous 
amounts of funds, until the extension 

of c¢ur- 

One has 

of credits had been carried to the point 
where interest rates began to 
No attention 


have recently, 

would prevail, if did it would 

pass with the opening of the new vear. | 

The speculation extended on and on. 
as it has recently, 
Which time there was considerable 
id to that which has prevailed recent- 

The same assurances were given .at 
that time as now. by the banking inter- 

ests, that the passing of the new year | 

would seé money rates return to nor- 
levels, but they did not. Interest 
rates remained around 6 ahd §S per cent 
with the exception of a short period in 
February, and were finally one of the 
main causes of the severe liquidation 
and decline which followed. 

Stocks were as now vVielding 
or about 4 per cent and the 
of carrying interest finally 
backbone of the marginal 
and investor. 

These conditions, it will be seen, are 
almost identical with thote that pre- 
vall- now ‘and the‘simHarity of both pe- 
riods throughout fs so far so striking. 
that it seems to point with almost ab 
solute accuracy to a termination of the 
present money and speculative market 
in the same way. 

Stocks will no doubt be carried higher 
by the interests in control of prices as 
the burden of securities is still with 
the rich men. But if they are, and the 
movement is Drought about by easy 
money rates in February and March it 
will be h'gh time for the speculator to 
reef his sails for the coming squall. For 
all indications are for very firm inter- 
est rates for some time to come, unless 
an improvement fn the situation, in the 
meantime, is brought about by liquida- 
tion in the s‘ock market and a. contrac- 
tion in’ credits. 

Conditions Good. 

Outside of the monetary question the 
market situation if anythirg is im- 
proved. he oreign situation shows 
signs of adjysting i’self and confidence 
is no doubt being restored in foreign 
financial circles. 

Trade reports of the leading mercan- 
tile agencies continue highly optimistic 
Tron trade reports show an unprecedent- 
ed condition—in the steel and iron ousi- 
ness, which is invariably the barometer 
of the country’s prosperity. Rai'road 
earnings show very heavy increases in 
both the gross and net results over 
those of the same period one year ago. 
And reports from the growing wheat 
territory are on the whole more favor- 
able than ever before at this period of 
the year. 

The East Side tract stocks wer: 
also very strong on a reported consoli- 
dation of the Alton, Granite and St. 
Louis lines with the East St. Louis 
and Suburban. 

The bank and trust lists while quiet, 
show a very: firm price range on a 
persistent demand from smajil investors 
The strong feature of the local marke! 
has been its investment demand, which 
has placed stocks in strong hands, and 
practically eliminated the possibility of 
a severe decline like that of three years 
ago, when an over-speculative move- 
ment in these securities was encour- 

The bond market is also in a strong 
position, and prices on all the favorite 
issues show an upward tendency, which 
is no doubt caused by the reinvestment 
of the January dividends. Following are 
the week’s closing quotations on the

Bulls and Bears Hard Pressed 
to Scalp Out -an 

The week in the grain market was an 
unsatisfactory one and both ‘the bulls 
and bears are hard pressed to scalp 
out an existence, Speculation is in a 
rut and only aggressive buying or sell- 
ing by influential interests can be looked 
forward to to change the situation. 

At the closing of the week, however, 
the tendency of values was apparently 
downward and last prices gave the sell- 
ers a slight advantage.

To save Mrs. Pauline Hermann, a helpless invalid, from death 
in a fire in the boarding house at 1611 Missouri avenue yesterday 
afternoon, Miss Jewel Reed, 17 years old, after reaching the street 
in safety and giving the alarm, ran back through a barrier of flame 
and smoke and, with Mrs. Laura Pulvermacher, sister of the bed- 
ridden woman, attempted to carry Mrs. Hermann from the build- 
ing, when all three perished in a bathroom, in which they were . 
forced to take refuge when the fire cut off their eseape. 

Mrs. Emma Hilger, aged 38, of 2846 Lafayette avenue, another sister of 
Mrs. Hermann, frenzied with fear and the pain of burnt face and hands, leaped

William Ashworts, a Demoers: 
Bersch, a Republican. once befriended. 
was the first to greet him as he left 
the Missouri Pacific train at Union Sta- 
tion. Soon after the twbh men reached 
the midway in the station were 
met by Louis Decker and Walter Grif- 
fin, former associates of Bersch. 

One of the first things Bersch did 
after reaching his hotel was to call up 
his old friend Herman Bader, who keeps 
@ saloon at Grand avenue and Hebert 
street, and a long conversation followed. 

“Hello, Herman,” said Bersch, ‘I'm 
back all right and I'll be out the first 
thing in the morning. I'm here at the 
Rozier and all played out tonight, and 
think I’d better turn in early, but we'll 
have a good talk in morning and 
a game of pinochle for old times’ sake.”’ 

Then for the first time Bersch was re-

Mr. Bader said last night that Bersch, 
did not know of the St. Louis Sunday 
lid until he was told over the phone 
last night. 

Wore Tailored Suit. 

Dressed in a new gray suit and brown 
overcoat and retaining his heavy brown 
mustache, Bersch left the train and 
made his way through the gate unrecos- 
nized by Union Siation attaches, who 
were on the lookout for him and who 
supposed that he had gotten off at Tow- 
er Grove station. 

Although lighter in welght than when 
he left St. Louis, Berseh looks well and 
no one on the train suspected that he 
was the first- of the St. Louis boodlers 
to be released. 

When seen by a Post-Dispatch report- 

er last nignt Bersch said that he had 
made no plans for the future and was 
thinking only of his health, not feeling 
as well as he thought he should. 

“T haven't a trouble in the world to

ception my old comrades have given 
me tonight, St. Louis seems to me to 
be a good place to recuperate. 
When found by a Post-Dispatch 
porter Bersch was in conversation with 
Henry L. Weeke, present member of 
the House of Delegates and an old 
friend of. Bersch’'s.

St. Louisan Says He Did Not 
Present House to: Mrs. 


Kansas City Suit Brings Out 
Statements Widely at 

<jeorge 'W. Krebs; vice-president of the 
Van Noy News Co., testifying in Kan- 
yesterday in the suit brought 

Sas ( 

from a rear window of the second floor to a paved yard, just as John Harris 
and Thomas Callahan were raising a ladder to her, and her right knee cap was 
broken, her head was cut and she was badly bruised. Her condition is serious. 

Jasper Ogilvie, a Pullman car conductor, who was sleeping in the third story 
of the house when aroused by the heat of his room and the frantic screams of 
the suffering women below him, finding retreat by the stairs impossible, 
crawled through a window to the roof and remained until Lieut. Patrick 
Winters and firemen of Truck Company No. 14 rescued him. 


What nappened when Miss Reed, after reaching the street and giving the ak 

alarm, rushed back into the house to meet death in her heroic but vain ef- 
fort to rescue helpless Mrs. Hermann, was told by the evidence which con- 
fronted the firemen when they searched the second floor. , 

Miss Reed’s first thought on seeing the flames on the stairway was to call 
the firemen and then help in the rescue of Mrs. Hermann, whom she knew 
to be unable to save herself. 

To reach the second floor, Miss Reed had to risk setting her clothing on 
fire as she mounted the stairs. Braving the danger, she groped her way wést- ~ 

wardly through the hall, already dense with smoke, to the middle room en 
the north side of the passageway where Mrs. Hermann and her two sisters 
were chatting in ignorance of their peril. 


Directing Mrs. Hilger and Mrs. Pulvermacher what to do, between warn- 
ings of thei\ danger and the need of hurry, Miss Reed helped to lift Mra. 
Hermann from her bed. With her own and Mrs. Pulvermachers arms 
about the sick woman's waist, Miss Reed started toward the stairway—evl- 
dently believing that she could safely take the invalid and her companions . 
through the flame and smoke to safety. 

As the four women neared the stairs the fames were mounting to the ceil- 
ing, the smoke was denser and more stifling, the danger had increased. To 
brave Gescent through the sheets and tongues of fire that were winding about 
them was to face death with hardly an iastant for hope of rescue or retreat. 

When Mrs. Hilger retreated, to leapa minute; later from a window, Miss 
Reed turned with her companions to the bathroom as a haven from the smoke’ 
and flames. It is thought that with the door closed between them and the fire 
on the stairway they imagined they could be safe until the firemen or other heip 
: But the atmosphere of the house by that time was deadly 
smoke and heat. Gasping for breath, they inhaled the flames that 
curled around them and sank to the floor, where the fire latef 
made them its prey. 

But the arms of Miss Reed, still tightiy wound about the woman shé 
sought to save, gave proof that she had died without any thought of buying 
sacrifice of her helpless guest.

CHICAGO, Jan. 6.~Mrs. Arthur W. 
Gentry was brutally murdered with a 
razor aS she was leaving her apartment 
in the Sheridan, 582 LaSalle avenue, at 
noon today. The weapon was wielded by 
a mysterious lodger, known as Frank 
J. Constantine Jr. of New York. Mrs. 
Gentry, a bride of less than a year, was 
almost beheaded. She etaggered out 
the door and down one flight of etairs 
to the office of Dr. D. J. Doherty. She 
could only whisper to the startled phy- 
sician at the same time pointing up- 
wards toward her apartment. “He cut 
my throat,’’ she) gasped, and then 
dropped dead. g 

At the same time Constantine, without 
hat or overcoat, dashed down the rear 
stairs. He encountered the janitor, who 
asked: ‘“‘Where's your hat?’ 

“You run and get it for me,”’ answered 
Constantine ; 
apartment he discovered a trafl of 
blood and evidence of a struggle. By 
this time the murderer had disappeared. 
He ran south to Division street, where 
he bought a cap and a: silk handker- 
chief to put around his neek, for he 
wore no collar. 

This was the last seen of him. 

Constantine had been. a lodger in the 
Gentry flat for five weeks. ._During the 
holidays he borrowed $25 from Mrs. 
Gentry. He notified her that he was 
going away next Tuesday and she told 
a woman friend that she would demand 
a return of her money. Constantine had 
been well liked by husband and wife.

Charles F. Ziebold, for whom the free 
bridge bill was named, contended that 
the experience of St. Louls could show 
no good reason why the City Council 
should insist on a Separate instead of a 
unite vote on the bill providing for the 
public improvements, among which pro- 
vision is made for the free bridge. The 
Council he said, has been placed in 
the disagreeable position of opposing a 
bill which they pretend to favor, but 
which they actuallv oppose for technical 
reasons only. 

Mr. Ziebold called on all citizens to 
see that the councilmen and assembly- 
men were waited upon and shown why 
they should prefer the wishes of the 
people to those of a monopoly. 

L. C. Irvine, the last speaker. 
charged that the friends of the Ter- 
minal monopoly were the only ones who 
had been benefited by the assoctaticn’s 
recent reduction ifn toll charges. The 
minimum of 70,000 pounds to the car, he 
said, could only be taken advantage of 
by those to whom such care would be 
given, and the big cars, few in number. 
could only be procured by friends of 
the monopoly. 

At the conclusion of the «mpeeches a reco- 
lution was unanfmously passed pledging

for a unit vote submission to the voters.

PARIS, Jan. 6.—It seems probable thit 
the presidential election on Jan. 16 wil! 
give France again a chief of state from 
the common people. The two candidates 
most in vicw, like Monsieur Loubet, are 
of the plainest origin. 

M. Fa!lieres, 
and candidate of the Progressive Repub- 
licans, with a leaning to= the extreme 
Views of M. Combes, is a son of a mug- 
istrate’s clerk and grandson of a black- 
smith, whose forge and cottage, propped 
against the wall of the Cathedral of 
Mezin, have been destroyed only just 
in time to prevent them from figuring 
in the magazines as pictures of the 
birthplace of the possible President of 
the French reoublic. 

M. Paul Doumer, who is supposed to 
be modelling himself diligently upon his 
hero, President Roosevelt, stands the 
next best chance of success at Ver- 
sailles. He is the son of a very humble 
railroad employe, and was apprenticed 
to a manufacturer of cheep jewelry. 

Doumer, now President of the Cham- 
ber, remains simple in his tastes and 
habits. It is said he riseg at 4 a. m. 
and lights his own fire. 

Sworn Exvemy of Pomp. 

He is the sworn enemy of all pomp 
and pretense, and in this is differ:nt 
from Fallieres, who, though far from 
rich, ts credited with liking to surround 
himeelf with all the parade of office 
end with aristocratic associates. 

Doumer, like Loubet, and like Fal- 
lieres, Owes much politically to his ca- 
reer in law. He is believed to be far 
the most intellectually eminent of the 
candidates, being a brilliant journalf«t, 
literateur and polftician. He had, as 
Governor-General of Indo-China, larger 
experience in big problems of govern- 
ment than any of his rivals. 

There is a certain doubt as to what 
school of politics he really belongs; in 
his heart he was inclined to socialism; 
then he dallied with the Nationalists, 
and even advanced toward tne. Right, 
earning thus a reputation as a trimmer. 

Leon Bourgeols, the third chance in 
the popular view, began life as a law- 
yer’s clerk, but charmed his way rap- 
idly to the favor of Jules Simon, and 
haa since scaled all the hetrarchy of 
office, winning the hearts of even his 
political adversaries. He is a phil- 
osopher, a linguist, an artist and 
amuses himself by making: midiocre 
sculpture. His friends call him the 
“modern Marcus Aurelius.” His elec- 
tion would be the triumph of the Rad- 
ical-Secialist group. 

Brisson a Possibility. 

Henri Brisson's election would mean 
the success of the same party. His 
Sreat distinction, apart from austere 
ersonal excellence, is based upon his 
ntervention in favor of revision of 
the Dreyfus sentence. 

Other serious possibilities are Count 
Rouvier, Bibot, Sarrien, who has ex- 
traordinary unofficial power behind 
the scenes, holding something like 
the position of political boss of Amer- 
ican politics; and Charles Dupuy, ed- 
itor and proprietor of Le Petit Per- 

There is some talk of the possible 
election of the greatest of French sa- 
vants, Mariel Berthelot, in case no 
candidate of the bitterly intriguing 
Parties can detach sufficient votes 
from the less decided fringe of his op- 
ponents’ camp. 

And always there is the possibility 
that President Loubet, who now 
waives any decisive pronoyncement, 
may accept a renomination, which 
would probably insure his re-election. 

It ig current gossip in Paris that 
Mme. Loubet is using all her influence 
Over the President to force him again 
into the arena. A week ago the Presi- 
dent complained as: follows to a 

“In seven years I have not once been 
free to smoke my pipe sincerely.”

PARIS, Jan. 6.—The French naval] 
authorities, says the Matin, are he- 
coming gravely disaquiected by the 
ravages of opium smoking among of- 
ficers on duty at the sea ports of 
Brest. Cherbourg, Lorient, Rochefort 
and Toulon. Many smoke from 20 to 
-5 pipes a day, and evidently rerform 
their duties in a perpetua!’ drowse 

At Toulon especially the vice is mak- 
ing alarming ravages; young officere 
are hardly seen at the theaters or so- 
ciety, but as soon as they can get off 
their uniforms they hasten to the 
Jirty Chinese dens where, stretched on 
coarse matting. they = steep their 
brains in opium dreams. Several cas- 
es are cited of young officers running 
into financial ruin and engaging in 
disgraceful transactions to procure 
the expensive joy. A satirical] play 
ends with an allusion to the disgrace- 
ful state of things at Toulon.

eur mothers and grandmothers gave 

+, ous our day dose .of sulphur and 

molasses every spring and fall. 
Wexett was the universal spring and 
~ fall “Dlood purifier,’ tonic and cure- 

all, and mind you, this old-fashioned 

remedy “as not without merit. 

The idea was good, but the remedy 
was crude and unpalatable, and a 
large quantity had to be taken to 
get any effect. 

Nowadays we get all the beneficial 
effects of sulphur in a palatable, con- 
centrated form, so that a single grain 
is far more effective than a table- 
spoonful of the crude sulphur. 

In recent years, research and ex- 
periment have proven that the best 
sulphur for medicinal use is that ob- 
tained from Calcium (Calcium 
Sulphide) and sold in drug stores 
under the name of Stuart’s Calcium 
Wafers. They are small chocolate 
coated pellets and contain the active 
medicinal principle of sulphur in a 
highly concentrated, effective form. 

Few people are aware of the value 
of this form of sulphur in restoring 
and maintaining bodily vigor and 
health; sulphur acts directly on the 
liver and excretory organs, and puri- 
fies and enriches the blood by the 
prompt elimination of waste ma- 

Our grandmothers knew this when 
they dosed us with sulphur and 
molasses every spring and fall, but 
the crudity and impurity of or- 
dinary flowers of sulphur were often 
worse than the disease, and cannot 
eompare with the modern concen- 

, trated preparations of sulphur, of 
which Stuart’s Calcium Wafers is 
undoubtediy the best and most wide- 
Iy used. : 

They are the natural antidote for 
liver and kidney troubles, and cure 
constipation and purify the blood in 
aA Way that often surprises patient 
and physician alike. 

Dr. R. M. Wilkins, while experi- 
menting with sulphur remedies soon 
found that the sulphur from Calcium 
Was superior to any other form. He 
says: “For liver, kidney and blood 
troubles, especially when resulting 
from constipation or malaria, I. have 
been surprised at the results ob- 
tained from Stuart’s Calcium Waf- 
ers, In patients suffering from boils 
and pinrples and even deep-seated 
earbuncles, I have repeatedly seen 
them dry up and disappear in four 
or five days, leaving the skin clear 
and smooth. Although Stuart’s Cal- 
cium Wafers is a proprietary article, 
and sold by druggists, and for that 

reason tabooed by many physicians, 
yet I know of nothing so safe and 
reliable for constipation, liver and 
kidney troubles and especially in all 
forms of skin diseases as this 

At any rate people who are tired 
of pills, cathartics and so-called 
blood “purifiers,” will find in Stuart’s 
Calcium Wafers a far safer, more 

patatable and effective preparation.

Members of Temple Israel 
Congregation Plan Unique 

Forty young men and women of Tem 

ple Tpheris Israel congregation, ac- 

tuated by the desire to lessen the evils | | 
of consumption as much as lies within, 

their power, have organized the Hebrew 
Young Men's and Women’s Consumptive 
Aid Society. 
week in Hall No. 9, Fraternal Building, 
fSleventh and Franklin avenue. 

The society, which is associated with 
the National Consumptive Aid Society, 
intends to assist much as possible 
vicitms of the white plague. The sani- 
turium of the National Society at Den- 
ver will be brought into commission 
for the benefit of those to whom the 
St. Louis society can extend its char- 

The society hopes that it will be able 
to help many whose lack of means pre- 
vents them from receiving the atten- 
tion that might prolong their lives. The 
funds for this purpose are being raised 
by subscription and by initiation and 
membership fees. ; 

The idea of the society was originated 
by Samuel Raudman. D. Sherman, B. 
Shuecart, Miss Hannah Heller, Miss 
Pearl Heller and Miss Ler. Heller, who 
were leaders in the organization. Rabbi 
Spitz, editor of the Jewish Voice, and 
other prominent Hebrews, have ex- 
pressed their approval of the society. 


2,000,000-Candle-Power Glim 
Tested at the Navy 
Yard. . 

Special to the Post-Dispatch. 

NEW YORK, Jan. 6.—Tests of the 
most powerful searchlight ever built 
were made at the Brooklyn Navy Yard 
last night. The 20,000 candle-power 
develored by the electric light proper 
is multipHed 100 times by a parabola 
mirror, so that the power of the light 
is that of 2,000,000 candles, 

The big light was made by the Gen- 
eral Electric Co. at Schenectady. It is 
a twin to that placed at Sandy Hook 

for the army. While an ordinary 
searchlight has an 18-inch lens, the 
lens of this one is 60 inches in diame- 
ter. The positive carbon is two and 
one-half inches across. The current 
used last night was 200 amperes, with 
a voltage of 125. This was reduced by 
rheostats to a voltage of 50 at the arc. 

The immense power of the light was 
shown by the dust it disclosed in the 
night atmosphere. Onxe of the men 
present at the test remarked that it 
made him uneasy to see what he was

Master-in-Chancery Reynolds 
Prepares Finding in the 
Huttig Case. 



Circulars and Work Among 
Contractors Held Violation of 
Judge Thayer’s Injunction. 

States District Attorney at St. Louis, 
Who has been sitting as master-in- 
chancery in the hearing of evidence in 
the Charge of contempt of court agains: 
memivers of the United ‘Brotherhood of 
Carpenters and Joiners of America, in 
ihe btiuttiig sash mili case, growing out 
Ol a sStrixe of brothernooa ‘wornxmen 
two years ago in this city, made his re- 
port yesterday, finding that the accused 
members of the union were guilty of 
contempt in disobedience of the injunc- 
tion issued against them by name out 
of the United Siates Circuit Court by 
Judge Finkelnberg. 

The report of the Master, which is 
required to be made on facts established 
by evidence, wili ‘be certified to Judge 
Finkelnberg’s court after ll days have 
expired, during which the attorneys for 
the defendants may file exceptions to 
the finding. 

Among lawyers and business men the 
finding is looked upon as one of the 
greatest importance, as the injunction 
was granted on the petition that the 
acts of intimidation and boycott, instl- 
tuted through the members ‘and officiais 

of the union organjzation of carpenters, 
were unlawful and deleterious to the 
business of the Huttig company. 

in this case a restraining order was 
issued April 28, 1994, by Judge Amos M. 
Taayer, now deceased, which order is 
still in force. But it was not until last 
summer that the acts complained of as 
Violations of the order were committed. 
During last summer George J. Bohnen, 
national organizer for the Brotherhood, 
came to St. Louis and with James A. 
Shine, ‘Thomas J. Croke, Frank W. Mel- 
ville and Alvin Hohenstein engaged in 
thé work of prosecuting an alleged boy- 
cott against the Huttig and other non- 
union mills, This, it appeared at the 
hearing beiore the Master, was accom- 
plished by the publication of circulars 
naming certain millg ‘‘unfair’’ and by 
threats securing agreements or _ con- 
tracts WHh -building contractors to use 
nothing but union made or ‘‘fair’’ mill 
products in building contracts. 

Evidence was heard between Oct. 16 
and Dec. 16 of last year and the finding 
was reported vesterday. The law firm

Her Freedom.

Coprright, 1996, by the Press Pub. Cy. 
(New York World.) 

PARIS, Jan. 6.-—It is probable that 
Mme. Therese Humbert, the famous 
swindler, now undergoing a five-year 
sentence in the prison at Rennes, will 
soon be given her liberty, after having 
served more than half her sentence. The 
Prison Medical Board announced that 
an immediate surgical operation was 
necessary. She refused to submit to 
it and sent an appeal to the Minister of 
the Interior, In which she said: 

“The condition of my health is get- 
ting more serious, so that an immediate 
surgical operation seems to be neces- 
sary. After mature reflection, however, 
] decided to ask Your Excellency to 
give me my liberty, so that I may die 
near my dear ones.”’ 

The Commission on Provisional Lib- 
erty will meet next week, and, it is 
said, will grant Mme. Humbert’s petition 
vecause of her health.

Complete Catalogue of Valuable 
Exhibits Prepared by the 
Board of Education. 

to the 


Interesting Lantern Slides Used 
in Explaining Educa- 
tional Topics. 

The Board of Education has just is- 
Sued a new and complete catalogue of 
the Public Schools Educational Museum. 
The catalogue contains descriptions of 
all the articles the museum, which 
Situated in the Weyman 
School Teachers’ College, both 
the corner of Theresa 
and Park avenues. It also contains in- 
Structions to teachers to enable them to 
give to their pupils the greatest bene- 
fit of the museum. 

_ The museum, which has been in ex- 
istence*’since last September, is the only 
one of its kind in the country. At the 
close of the World’s Fair, when the for- 
governments and private exhibit- 
ors from all parts of the world were 
leaving behind priceless gifts for the }- 
Louis Public Museum, the Board of Ed- 
ucation made a request that the gifts 
from the primary schools departments 
of the educational exhibits be left to 
The request was granted. This 

the nucleus of the museum, 

and the 

which has since grown most encourag- 

Is n Museum on Wheels. 

The museum is virtually a museum on 
wheels. Instead of the different delega- 
tions of children from the public schools 
visiting the museum, the articles are 
transferred from the museum to the dif- 
ferent schools at the request of the dif- 
ferent teachers. 

The Board of Education has already 
begun to appreciate the value 
new idea. The children now take 
greater interest in their Studies. In- 
stead of being compelled, as formerly, 
to memorize theories with abstract ex- 
amples, they are shown practical] illus- 
trations of the principles explained in 
their text books. 

In this way geology becomes 4d de- 
lightful study instead of a perplexing 
series of rules and theories to be conned 
by heart. History, art, nature study, 
reading and, in fact, all the branches 
taught in the schools take on a 

Perhaps the feature most popular with 
the children the magnificent 
of lantern slides in 
the museum. 

Whenever the principal of a school 
wishes to give a magic lantern exhibi- 
tion. he sends an order to the museum 
for the kind of slides that he wishes. 
He may

The museum is in charge of C. 
Rathman, assistant supertendent 
public schools. Mr. Rathman had charge 
of the St. Louis Public Schools exhibit 
at the World's Fair and was largely 
responsible for many of the gifts re- 
ceived from different exhibitors.

roman January is the best month of win- 
ter—the best for health, the best for 
business, the best for pleasure, the 
best for recreation. The trying § ~ 
weather of November and December — 
has passed and most people have 
become acclimated to winter weather. 

Dr. Hartman, in speaking of catarrhal diseases prevalent during 
January, among other things said, ‘‘Notwithstanding Januaryisa _— 
midwinter month, fewer cases of chronic catarrh are acquired dur- 
ing this month than any other month of the year, with the possible 
exception of October.’’ | 

He went on to say, ‘‘The healthfulness of January weather how- 
ever, should not put people off their guard. There are many little 
rules that should be carefully observed. 

“'For instance, the feet should be kept dry. The hands and ~ 
wrists kept warm. Sleeping rooms should be well ventilated. The — 
throat gargled with cold water every morning. All these are excel. 
lent preventives to catching cold or acquiring catarrh.”’ 

The Doctor further said, ‘‘During 
a ee busy life, I have never 
omitted these details. In addition to 
these I always have a bottle of Peru- Colds and Catarrhal — 
na in my room. If I have a sligh {7 
cough or hoarseness—the least ue | Ailments. 
of sore throat or sneezing, I take a 
few doses of Peruna and the difficulty disappears. hp 

‘‘T have used Peruna very nearly all my life and I attribute my. 
hale and hearty old age to the use of Peruna. I know many other ~~ 
old people who can say the same. , oa 

‘‘While January is a salubrious month, yet caution should be ob- — 
served. Those who have chronic catarrhal ailments should be ~

formation within a week or two re- 
Sarding the situation in China, but 
recent events have convinced them 
that the unrest in the Celestial King- 
dom is more persistent than ever be- 
fore and that it is growing continual- 


There is a great awakening on the 
part of the people of China. They are 
taking more interest in the affairs of 
Government: are protesting strongly 
against the oppressions to which they 
@re subjected: they are becoming 
more independent, and they no longer 
hesitate to show their disapproval of 
existing conditions by engaging in 
riots and rebelling against the power 
of the Emperor. 

People Dissatisfied. 

One of the most signaficagt features 
of the situation is the fdct that the 
great provinces in 
China are acting independently of the 
Emperor, and are giving heed to ¢he 
demands of the people, who are clam- 
Oring for more consideration than 
they now receive. These Governors 
are powers in China, and backed up 
ay the people in their provinces, are 
disregarding more than ever before 
the orders of the Emperor. 

These facts have convinced the pow- 
ers of Furope and the officials of the 
United States that there may soon be 
& general breaking up of China; that 

@ provinces may separate them- 
seives from the central Government, 
and that serious and far-reaching dis- 
Orders may take place, which will 
jeopardize the lives of all foreigners 
and their property. 

No @etailed plans for the future oper- 
a@tions have been worked out, and it 
has mot yet been decided whether 
there will be a concerted action on the 
part of the Western powers, as there 
was during the Boxer uprising.

Upon one wiho knows the poiice sit- 
uation in this city Bingham made the 
impression of a man thoroughly deter- 
mined to do his duty, without realizing 
the tremendous extent of the function 
he was to pertorm. 

He spoke lightly, His 
manner showed the of a 
knight going into battle with the gage 
of his faith fluttering above his visor, 
regardless of his fate, fanatical in his 
belief that neither Gorgon nor Griffin 
could conquer the right. 

if he realizes the grave import of 
the things he will be expected to do, he 
does not show it, neither in words nor 
bearing. He by no means nervous. 
Instead, he seems to be a strung com- 
bination of the phiegmatic and the mer- 
curlal. He talks hopefully and moves 
slowly. He shows evidences of a strong 
will, but @ mild temper.

The General was born in Connecticut. 
He entered West Point from New 
Hampshire. For several years he was 
1rilitary attache at various European 
capitals. He was master of social cere- 
monies in the White Huuse during the 
McKinley administration. Soon after 
Mr. Roosevelt assumed office Bingham 
became engaged in a row with Mrs. 
Roosevelt's private secretary and oth- 
ers. The President put him back in the 
army, and he was ordered to Buffalo 
to take charge of big construction work 
there. A huge steel beam fell on him 
one day and crushed his leg, making 
amputation necessary. When he re- 
covered he was made a Brigadier-Gen- 
eral and retired. 

To a Post-Dispatch reporter Gen. 
Bingham talked of his new job, saying: 
“Please do not think I have moved 
to New York City simply because

“I will am somewhat

“It will probably take me some weeks 
t» get on to things.”’ 

“Graft,”’ for instance,’’ was suggested. 

“Graft? I suppose that is your New 
York word for dishonesty. Well, there 
will assuredly be none of it if I possess 
the power to prevent it. I want to 
promise the New York people that I will 
do my best, and you know that is all 
that any man can do.’ 

“You do not anticipate any 
in handling the force, do you?” 

There was an gleam in 
Gen. Bingham’s eves as he threw his 
head back and glanced in amused way 
at the ceiling. His air was that of a 
man absolutely sure of himself, 

“I have never anticipated trouble In 
any command which I ever undertook,” 

he said, slowiy, ‘I have been accustomed 
to command. Of course, I do not know 
much about policemen, but I do not sup- 
pose they are different from other men. 
They are certainly amenable to rule.’ 
The conversation turned to the Har- 
oun al Raschid sleuthing tactics of 
Theodore Roosevelt when he was a Po- 
lice Commissioner. Gen. Bingham 
smiled sadly as he listened to the 
doughty doings of the President.

Bingham opposed to the extent of his 
authority the Roosevelt idea of selling 
all the historic furniture in the White 
House. He thought most of it should 
be retained. He was voted down by the 
President and Mrs. Roosevelt, however, 
and had to submit. 

He had in his office a fine old mahog- 
any sofa, rescued from one of the Roose- 
velt forays on the historic furniture. A 
friend sat talking with him one day and 
kept looking at the piece. 

“I. notice,’ said Bingham, “that you 
are looking at that sofa. Do yo admire 
the carving or are you looking at it be- 
cause of the upholstery is so dilapi- 
dated ?’’ 

“T admire the carving,”’ said the friend. 

“IT am glad of that,” Bingham replied. 
‘‘T do not dare have it re-upholstered for

will grab it and order it burned. It

Bingham took absolute charge of the 
functions at the White House. He is 
a martinet and a believer in gold lace. 
He was the gaudiest thing that ever 
showed in the White House on reception 
days, with the exception of a few scat- 
tering ambassadors, here and there. 

Roosevelt likes gold lace and, while 
Bingham was there, he bullioned himself 
until he looked like a pile of double 
eagles. He ruled with a rod of iron. 
Une night, at a diplorkatie reception, 
shortly after Roosevel. went to the 
White House, Senator Depew was stand- 
ing back of the line telling a: funny 
story. There wag great laughter—by De- 

The President heard the poise and 
looked annoyed. Bingham emmediately 
stepped over, put his hand on Depew’s 
shoulder and said “You are annoying 
the President by this noise, and it must

When Bingham was major domo he 
was boss. and that was all there was 
to it. He did what he pleased. He 
is the man who tried to send the wife 
of the Austrian Ambassador into the 
State dinner on the arm of the Mex- 
fean Ambassador. He had forgotten all 
about that unfortunate episode when 
the Mexicans shot the ill-fated Maxi- 
milian, who was an Archduke of Aus- 
tria. The Baroness Hengelmueller 
raged about it, and Bingham retired as 
gracefully as he could. The Mexican 
Ambassador took in another lady, but 
Bingham could “not see why bygones 
should not be bygones, and said so. 

Bingham {s rich. Heé~played the socia] 
in Washington to {ts limit. At 
the same time, he imwproved the parks 
established a park police force with a 
natty green uniform of his own design- 
ing, and remodeled the President’s 
stables, and did a lot of things that 
have been followed by men who have 
succeeded him He, more than anyone 
else, except the President, who likes 
military display, is responsible for the 
gradual increase of pomp and gold lace 
at the White House. 

Gen. Bingham Is the strictest kind of 
a disciplinarian. He plays no favorites. 
He says what he thinks. The ‘‘coppers”’

Evidence Found Shows He Was 
Dragged to Guest Chamber 
While Unconscious. 


Could Have Fallen There Only 
While Injured Man. Was in 
an Erect Position. ‘ 

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 6. — The 
discovery of evidence pointing to the 
probability that Charles A. Eniwards of 
New York, the victim of the mysterious 
murder at the Hiller family homestead, 
Was mot shot in the bed where ne was 
found was the most interesting develop- 
ment in the case today. 

This evidence came to light when an 
examination wag made of the clothing 
on the body. On one of the stockings, 
the left one, a biood clot as large ag oe 
end of a man's thumb was’ discovered 
and bleod had soaked through the 
stocking and spread over the top of the 

This is considered to leave little doubt 
that the body was placed in the guest 
chamber bed after the shooting, and the 
detectives are working on the theory 
that the man was shot while standing 
or in some other position where the 
blood from the wound in the left side 
of the head would fall upon his foot. 

The fact that on the left stocking also 
there was a collection ¢6f lint or carpet 
dirt, is belleved to lend color to the 
theory that he was d ged in an un- 
conscious condition to the bed. There 
wae no lint on the stockine that covered 
the right foot. It was said today that 
two bullets have been found imbedded 
- one of the walls of the guest cham- 


A blood clot on the brain is now said 
to have been the cause of death direct- 
lv, though it is belfeved that the clot 
resulted from the bullet wound. The 
bullet did not penetrate the brain mat- 
ter, but dodged just under the inner 
surface of the skull at the top of the 
head, after passing through the upper 

part of the left ear. 

The formal report of the medical ex- 
— on the direction taken by the 
ullet and the cause of death was not 
given to the Coroner today, 
chemical] examination of the stomach 
and other organs had not been com- 
pleted. This examination was conducted 
at the Yale Medical Schoo! laboratory. 

Reports circulated during the day that 
poison thad been found in the body were 
denied by the surgeons who assisted in 
the autopsy, but the result of the chem- 
ist’s examination is nevertheless await- 
ed with interest. 

At the Coroner’s office it was sald 
that his report on the fnquest would 
not be given out tonight, the 
investigation is about complete 

of that kind, he would shoot the first 
man who mentioned the subject to him.

Specigl to the Post-Dispatch 

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6.—J. B. Harris 
of California, who claims to have 
built more miles of railroad than any 
other man in the world, called at the 
White House today and made a propo- 
sition to the President which Harris. 
believes will solve the labor problem 
of the Panama Canal. 

Harris declared that the Jamaica 
negro, now being used on the canal, 
Was the most worthless laborer living. 

He stated that the natives of Mexico 
and Central America, who have gen- 
erally been regarded as the least sat- 
isfactory, were the best laborers in 
the world for the canal work. The 

roposition made by Harris is ag fol- 

“I will furnish you all the common 
labor you require for building the 
Panama Canal under the following 
we ee 

“Wages not leas than $1, ld, per 
day. ,aid weekly. Houses with water- 
tigat roof. Food, consisting mostly 
of corn, beans and pork, sold at rea- 
sonable price, or the men to have the 
i 0 to import the same. Ordinary 
police protection. Permission to bring 
their families or leave to visit their 
families. They are mostly married 
men with families. 

“For myself I expect a reasonablé 
remuneration, also to be properly ac¢- 
credited, that I may stand well with 
the Government and be able to lead . 
men Out of their country and away 
from their homes.”

‘The natives of Mexico and Central 
America,” said Harris, “are law abid- 
ing and industrious, healt#y, strong 
physically, obedien Snes easily 
managed, efficient and reliabie in ev- 
ery way. They are difficult to ap- 
proach, distrustful of arengee and 
it is hard to gain their confidence, but 
they are loyal and faithful when er 
Know a man. As laborers, they - 
ally build their own homes and fur- 
nish their own food.

Tt transpires that thie Red

ehanges of course, owing to the 
that it runs through a lig4t, friable soi} 
for long siretches, and during seasons 
of heavy rain develops an extremely 
rapid, devouring current. At places the 
present thread of the current is miles 
from where it ran when the boundary 
line was established. 

it is said that the law provides that 
gradual changes in the bed o?f a river 
that ts designated as a boundary shall 
be disregarded, the boundary line fol- 
lowing the center of water cours® 
as the course of nature slowly modifies 
it, and the tucky owner on the side 
whence the water recedes acquiring title 
“by accretion’ to the land left dry. Un 
the other hand, however, when the 
change of current is ‘caused by some 
tremendous cataclysm, as a fresnet, vvul- 
canic eruption or similar event, the law 
considers that the boundary line has 
been wiped out, and contemplates that 
the line may be established by survey 
according to its original trend, regard- 
jess of the eccentricities of the water 
course. : 

The latter is what the nation's repre- 
sentatives claim has occurred in the 
case of Red River. The tremendous 
freshets that have occurred along its 
course have altered its bed, throwing 
large tracts to t’.e Texas side of the 
river. The present commission, if ap- 
proved by the President, will be author- 
ized to resurvey the line according to 
the ancient landmarks.

900 Against Estate the 
Cause of Suspicion. 

PORT WORTH Tex., Jan. 6. 

WO CHARTERS have already been 
7 in the story of what is now known 

throughout North Texas as the 
“pionewall County Poison Mystery,’ 
the authorities of that county 
and of Fort Worth who have been busy 
in trying to solve the problem that was 
set for them when J. D. McGaughey, a 
wealthy ranchman of Rayner, Tex., died 
suddenly Oct. last, admit they are 
still without tangible clew which might 
lead them prove satisfactorily the 
causes responsible for McGaughey’s 

and vet 



The first chapter in the story ended 
with MeGaughey’s death. It followed a 
remarkable history of affection between 
an elderly plainsman and a young boy 
to whom he became attached to the 
point of almost replacing the boy's dead 

The second chapter ended with the 
suicide of J. C. Hills of Fort Worth tn 
the city of Tampico, Mexico, Dec. 27 
last. The suicide came after a whisper 

of svspicion on the part of Stonewall [ 

County authorities against Hills, the 
young man who had been almost like 
McGaughey’s foster son; a warrant for 
Hills’ arrest on the charge of complic- 
ity in McGaughey’s death; Hills’ sud- 
den flight to Mexico; his pursuit by 
Texas and Mexican officers, and his ar- 
rest on the eve of his departure from 
Tampico for New Orleans. 

Wild Setting for Crime. 

Save for the last few days in Mexico, 

the scene of the story is laid in two 
sparsely settled counties of Western 
Texas—Haskell and Stonewall. It is the 
region of big ranches and their hospt- 
table owners, boundless’ stretches of 
grassy plain broken only by two forks 
of the Brazos River which wind 
throughout the entire length of both 

Neither county has yet been invaded 
by a railroad and the stage or the pony 
is still the only means of transporta- 

The chief mark of progress there {fs 
the telephone which reaches from ranch 
to ranch. These were installed only 

In this region J. D. McGaughey set- 
tled many years ago. Land was cheap, 
McGaughey knew the cattle business. 
and he prospered. Steadily the acres of 
his ranch extended, until it entered the 

borders of both counties. McGaughey's 
ranch home was near, Rayner, a little 

inland town in Stonewall County. 

Fifty miles to the east of McGaugh- 
ey’s ranch lies Haskell, capital of the 
county bearing that- name. W. B. An- 
thony, now receiving clerk fn the Texas 
general land office at Austin, was Sher- 
iff of Haskell County at the time the 
story opens, and his headquarters were 
at Haskell. 

To the Anthony home; when a young

boy, came J. C. Hills, brother of Mrs. | 

Anthony. The boy’s parents were dead 
and he went to live with his relatives. 
In Haskell he began his education, 
which was largely the education of any 
boy brought up in @ plains country 
town—that is, to know book learning if 
possible, but, first of all, know men. 

Lad Charms Ranchman, 

Young Hills was a bright boy and 
he progressed in his education rapidly. 
Among those whom he met at Haskell 
was McGaughey. The latter became at- 
tracted to him almost from the first. 

Then began between boy and ranch- 
man a fast friendship. McGaughey was 
like a father to young Hills, and the lat- 
ter repaid the kindness by a devoted 
regard. Hills spent much of his time 
at McGaughey’s ranch and the latter 
was apparently never happler than when 
the young man was in his company. 

No change in their relations occurred 
until two years ago. Then Hills, 23 
years old, declared he Wanted to 
more of the world than was to be viewed 
from the West Texas plains, and de- 
cided to come to Fort Worth. By this 
time he was regarded 4s an unusually 
promising young man, handsome jin ap- 
pearance, straightforward, popular ang 
winning in his manner. 

By this time he had influential friends 
in Haskell; his brother, a_ well-to-do 
merchant, lived there, and he was eas. 
ily provided with excellent recommenda- 

Hills came to Fort Worth and se, ured 
employment in the State National Rank 
It was a small position and the Salary 
was hardly more than enough to pay 
his expenses, but he announced he had 
come to learn banking and proposed (, 
stay. Besides, in his years of training 
in Western Texas he had gained an 
interest in a Stonewall County ranch 
with MeGanoghey, and a few cattle. Ir 
is believed that McGaughey aided 
in getting this start. 

In Fort Worth, as in Haskell County 
Hills became popular, first with ga ‘rons 
of the bank and later with a large 
ef acquaintances. He took 
the home of W. ©. Guthrie, a young

became boon companions. GutNrie was 
private secretary for an extensive con- 
tractor and had a large acquaintance in 
society. He introduced yeung Hills and 
the two became regular guests at all so- 
cial gatherings. 

Visited Old Home Frequently. 

But with his place in a bank and his 
new-found society friends in Fort 
Worth, young Hills did not forget the 
friends of his boyhood. He went fre- 
quently to the ranch in Stonewall 
County, near the McGaughey ranch, 
and, as often as he went, visited his 
elderly friend. Hills was at times of 
a reserved disposition and, with no 
other explanation than “I'll be gone a 
few days,’ would leave the bank and 
immediately take the two days’ journey 
to his boyhood home. 

Early in October of last year Hills 
told Guthrie he intended going to the 
ranch to round up some cattle and in- 
vited Guthrie to accompany him. The 
two had planned several vacation trips 
together, but the plans had always mis- 
earried. Guthrie was reluctant about 
leaving his work, but his employer 
urged him to go and he finally consented 
to accompany Hillis. 

Sometime before leaving Fort Worth, 
a young man believed to be Hills had 
called at a local drug store and tried 
to purchase some poison for prairie 
dogs. He wanted a pound of prussic 
acid and two pounds of cyanide of po- 
tassium. Both are deadly poisons, ex- 
pensive and not usually carried in large 
quantities by Texas druggists. 

The druggist told the young man he 
would have to order more of the poi- 
son than he had in order to supply him 
and the customer told him to notify J. 
Cc. Hills at the State National Bank 
when the poisons had been secured. A 
short time after this, the druggist says 
he notified Hills at the bank the pofl- 
sons had been received and he was told 
to deliver them packed for shipment at 
the bank. He says he did this and re- 
ceived a check in payment signed by 
J. C. Hills. The prussic acid which he 
says he delivered was in diluted form. 

As had been planned, Hills and Guth- 
rie went to the ranch in Haskell Coun- 
ty. Guthrie met McGaughey, who was 
there with several employes. Mra. Mc- 
Gaughey was absent on a visit. 
men spent 

The two young several 
days hunting and until finally 
Guthrie announced that he must return 
to Fort Worth. Hillis tried to persuade 
him to remain longer, but he refused 
and began packing up his belongings. 

Drink Makes Him Sick, 

Hills helped him and, when they were 
through, the ‘two drove to Haskell 
where Guthrie was to take the stage 
for Stamford, the nearest railroad point, 
While both were gone. McGaughey re- 
turned to the ranch. Being thirsty, he 
took a drink of water from a bucket 
sitting on the back 
porch of the ranch house. One of the 
men with him also became violently jl] 
after drinking the’ water. 

Guthrie, ignorant of McGaughey’s 4y)- 
ness. continued his journey Fort

told Guthrie 


After a few 


weeks there was a new 
and startling development. Hills con- 
Sulted a firm of Fort Worth lawyers 
and told them he had a claim against 
McGaughey's estate for $16,500. He pre- 
sented two notes from McGaughey, one 
for $10,000 and the other for $6500, and 
also two insurance policies for like 
amounts, saying that he had held the 
policies as collateral. 

The lawyers whom he consulted told 
him he would have a hard time col- 
lecting the notes. Later McGaughey’s 
widow was shown the notes and pro- 
nounced the signatures of her husband 
genuine. She declared she knew of no 
reason why her husband should owe 
Hills money, and also declared she 
knew nothing of the life insurance pol- 

Investigation Is Begun. 
Officers of Stonewall 
time hearing of McGaughey’s sudden 
death, started an investigation. They 
learned of the illness of the man who 
had been with McGaughey and 
pected poison. 

County, mean- 


There are few physicians tn Stonewal] 
and Haskell counties and autopsies are 
unheard of. So far as can be learned 
in Fort Worth, the Stonewall County 
authorities neither ordered an autopsy 
of McGaughey’s body or an analysis of 
the water in the bucket which, they 
suspected, caused his death. 5 

But Sheriff Senter of Stonewall Coun- 
ty lives according to the West Texas 
gospel of never taking & chance. He 
went before a Justice of the Peace ang 
swore out warrants against J. C. Hills 
and W. CC. Guthrie of Fort Worth. 
charging them with complicity tn the 
murder by poison of J. D. McGaughey. 

Meantime rumors of an investigation 
into McGaughey’s death had reached 
Fort Worth. Whether Hi'ls heard them 
before Guihrie is. not known. It was 
about this time Hills was told he would 
have a hard time collecting the notes 
he held. One morning Hills failed to 
report at the bank. His accounts were 
straight, and, supposing he had taken 
one of his customary trips to his ranch, 
the bank officials paid no attention to it. 

A few dava later they received a mes- 
sage from Hills, dated City of Mexico. 
saving he had applied for a position in 
a bank there and aSking the State Na- 
tlonal Bank, which had formerly em- 
ployed him, to give him a recommenda- 

That was Tuesday. The following 
Friday young Guthrie learned that 
there was a possibility he might be ar- 
rested. He paid no attention to the rt- 
mor, and remained at work 

Guthrie Is Arrested. 

The following morning Deputy Sherity 
R. B. Senter of Stonewall County, sun 
of the Sheriff, and also a believer in 
the doctrine of taking no chances, came 
unexpectedly into Fort Worth, called 
at the office where Guthrie was work- 
ing. arrested him, hurried him to the 

gsiation and placed him’ aboard a train 
for West Texas before any of the 
young mwn's friends could make a move 
in his behalf. 

The arrest caused astonishment. Guth- 
rie's friends expressed indignation at 
the young mans selzure and charge 
against him. Then some of them real- 
ized that out in Stonewall and Haskell 
counties justice sometimes moves faster 

than in the Hast, where cowboys are 

| employer, 

less numerous, and, fearing for Guth- 
rie's safety should he fall in with Mc- 
(Faughey’s friends, they organized a re- 
lief party. 

In some respects it was a remarkable 
party. It included Guthrie's wealthy 
William G. Bryce; Noah 
Harding, vice-president of one of the 
largest banks in North Texas; State 
Senator W. A. Hanger; Willard Burton, 
vice-president of a $300,000 lumber com- 
pany, and other prominent business 

They dropped business interests for 
three days to assist a young clerk and 
secretary in whom they expressed their 
unbounded confidence and belief. 
“Guthrie could borrow $50,000 in town 
any day,’ one of the party declared, 
‘and give no more security than his 
personal word.’’ 

Released on $5000 Bond. 

Their belief in Guthrie was so con- 
vincing that after they had reached 
Haskell, Tex., they persuaded the coun- 
ty authorities to release the young man 
on $5000 bond, which they readily fur- 
nished. Guthrie was bound over until 
the next term of cotrt at Aspermont, 
Stonewall County, which probably will 
not meet until April 23 next. As soon 
as bail had been given Guthrie returned 
to Fort Worth and his work. 

‘I cannot understand it,’’ he said, 
when asked about his arrest. “I never 
saw McGughey before in my life until 
I went to the ranch with Hills. I was 
away when he died and Know nothing 
of the circumstances except what I 
have heard. There has been a big mis- 
take somewhere.” 

Hills, in the meantime, was still in 
Mextco. He evidently had not heard of 
Guthrie’s arrest, for he wrote the lat- 
ter two letters. In One he said: 

“Some day I am going to give you a 
full history of the affair which caused 
my sudden departure.” 

He aiso asked Guthrie to get his jn- 
surance policy and some other pap2rs 
and forward them, together with his 
cluthing, to W. B. Anthony, his broth- 
er-in-law at Austin. 

ln the other letter Hills described a 
tour through Mexico, told how he was 
enjoying himself, and said he expected 
to take a long journey through South 
American states. One phrase in this 
letter was significant. 

“Some day I am going into Fort 
Worth as suddenly as I left It.”’ 

. Texans Invade Mexico. 

Deputy Senter, who had arrested 
Guthrie, learned that Hills was in Mex- 
ico. Securing Deputy O. H. Buck of 
Fort Worth as an assistant, he hurried 
to Austin to get necessary papers au- 
thorizing the arrest of Hills by Mexican 
authorities. Then the two deputies hur- 
ried to the City of Mexico only to find 
that Hills had left there ifter buying a 
ticket for New Orleans by way of Tam- 
pico. They learned that the steamer 
for New Orleans would not sail from 
Tampico until Dec. 29—it was then Dec. 
22—and, after telegraphing to Mexican 
officers in Tampico to arrest Hills, they 
started for that city. 

Hills was arrested as he was walking 
on the plaza. Two Mexican officers 
took him in custody. He had been 
strolling about with some American 
friends he had made during his brief 
stay and was elegantly dressed. 

“Let me go to my room at the hotel 
and change my clothes before I go to 
jail.’ he said to the Chief of Police 
when taken before that official, and the 
impressed by the handsome 
appearance, consented, 

His “Joke’’ on the Official. 

Two Mexican officers accompanied 

' Hills to the winter hotel, where he had 

through the lobby, 
some American ac. 


a room. 
Hills nodded 

“Come up and see me make 
change,” he said to one officer. 
One remained at the foot of the stairs 
while the other accompanied Hills to 
his room. There Hills removed his 
clothing, folded it, placed it on a tray 
of his trunk and laid the tray on a 
table. Then he went back to the trunk 
and drew out a pistol. The officer 
sprang forward, but Hills handed the 
weapon to him, laughing. 

“Tt was only joking,” he said. 

Then he seated himself beside the 
trunk, leaned over, reached into ~ 
trunk and picked up a bottle. He un- 




Parents Give Daughter Who 
Eloped With Indian 
a Home. 

SIOUX CITY, Io, Jan. 6—After 
dwelling less than a year with her In- 

dian husband, John Blackh: 1 
Allie, daughter of Doctor Hart 5 tte 
clan at the Winnebago Reservation in 
Nebraska, has rejoined her parents and 
with them Bone to California. 

Miss ‘Hart was brought up among the 
Indians and loved the free life of the 
reservation. After her return from 
school in Ohio, Blackhawk began paying 
attention to the giri, then about nine- 
teen.., When it became evident an in‘at- 
uation was Springing up which might 
have undesirable consequences Dr. and 
Mrs. Hart proposed a visit to Ohio and 
Allie readily assented. After the doc- 
tor had started on the drive to Sioux 
City with his daughter, where they 
were to take the train. she left the 
carriage at Homer ostensibly to bid 
farewell to some girl acquaintances, and 
after waiting an hour, the father was 
informed she had hastily hired a rig 
and driven off with John Blackhawk. 
They drove at breakneck speed to South 
Sioux City, where they were married, 
and immediately took the train for 

Dr. Hart followed, swearing he would 
shoot the Indian on sight. Friends in- 
tervened, however, and the father re- 
turned home. Mr. and Mrs. Blackhawk 
have lived happily ever since on a farm 
on the same reservation. Dr. Hart has 
been transferred to a California reserva- 
tion and his daughter went with them. 
Blackhawk bade them good-by at the 
Station and returned to his Indian life.

corked it and drank deeply. The Mexi- 
can evidently thought he was taking a 
drink of whisky, for he made no effort 
to stop him. Hills replaced the cork 
in the bottle and the bottle in the 

Then he pitched forward unconscious. 
Less than half an hour later he was 

The Mexican officers examined the 
contents of the bottle. It had contained 
four ounces of diluted prussic acid. 
Hills drank half. 

The American: deputies, Buck and 
Senter, arrived in time to identify Hills 
and bury him. They searched his be- 
longings and found $300 worth of cloth- 
ing, about $15 in money, a revolver, 
some jewelry and some papers. Among 
none of the papers was anything that 
might give a clew to Hills’ reason for 
ending his life. 

Hills’ Friends Defend Him. 

Hills’ friends are unanimous in de- 
claring that he was innocent of any 
wrongdoing. They say he was the vic- 
tim of unfortunate circumstances; that 
he was of such sensitive disposition the 
shock of being suspected in connection 
with the death of his friend, made him 
leave Fort Worth without waiting to 
explain his reasons, and that the pros- 
pect of disgrace in being held prisoner 
in Mexico drove him to suicide. 

They admit they cannot understand 
how Hills had money enough to lend 
McGaughey $16,500 or the reason why 
the latter should want to berrow from 
his young friend, but they point out 
that McGaughey’s need would not be 
unusual] as, at certain seasons of the 
year, cattlemen frequently borrow large 
amounts to carry over investments, 

They also suggest that friends of 
Hills’, whose identity has not been dis- 
closed, furnished him the money for 
the loan or part of it, and that these 
friends chose to hold Hills for the ob- 
ligation, letting him take the insurance 
policies as collateral. 

They argue that his demeanor in Mex- 
which might be construed as leading 
to an interest in McGaughey’s death; 
that the notes for which the insurance 
policies were collateral were no more 
valuable with McGaughey dead than 
they would have been had McGaughey 
lived, aS he was amply able to repay 
them in full. 

“hey point out that Hills’ conduct 
was not like that of a fugitive; that he 
made no efforts to conceal his where- 
abouts in Mexico, even notifying his 
former employers where he had gone; 
that he told American acquaintances of 
his intention to go to New Orleans and 
thence to Central America. 

Thy argue that his demeanor in Mex- 
ico was not that of a hunted man; that 
he was cheerful, natural and made ac- 
quaintances and friends among the 
Ainericans he met,

Few People Know How Useful it is in 
Preserving Health and Beauty. 

Nearly everybody knows _ that 
charcoal is the safest and most ef- 
ficient disinfectant and purifier in 
nature, but few realize its value 
when taken into the human system 
for the same cleansing purpose. 

Charcoal is a remedy that the more 
you take cf it the better; it is not 
a drug at all, but simply absorbs the 
gases and impurities always present 
in the stomach and intestines and 
carries them out of the system. 

Charcoal sweetens the breath after 


letter | 

smoking, drinking or aiter eating 
onions and other odorous vegetables. 

Chareoal efiectualiy clears and 
improves the complexion, it whitens 
the teeth and further acts as a nat- 
ural and eminently safe cathartic. 

It absorbs the injurious gases 
which ,collect in the stomach and 
bowels; it disinfects the mouth and 
throat from the poison of catarrh. 

All druggists sell charcoal in one 
form or another, but probably the 
best charcoal and the most for the 
money is Stuart’s Charcoal Lozen- 
ges; they are composed of the. finest 
powdered Willow charcoal, and other 
harmless antiseptics in tablet form 
or rather in the form of iarge, pleas- 
ant tasting lozenges, the charcoal be- 
ing mixed with honey. 

The daily use of these lozenges will 
soon tell in a much improved condi- 
tion of the general health, better 
complexion, sweeter breath and 
purer blood, and the beauty of it is, 
that no possible harm can result 
from their continued use, but on the 
contrary, great benefit. 

A Buffalo physician, in speaking 
of the benefits of charcoal says: “] 
advise’ Stuart’s Charcoal. Lozenges 
to all patients suffering from gas in 
stomach and bowels, and to clear the 
complexion and purify the breath, 
mouth and throat; I also believe the 
liver is greatly benefited by the daily 
use of them; they cost but twenty- 
five cents a box at drug stores, and 
although in some sense a_ patent 
preparation, yet I believe 1 get more 
and better charcoal in Stuart’s Char- 
coal Lozenges than in any of the 
ordinary charcoal tablets.”

wounded during the Civil War that his 
living has been a mystery to the physi- 
clans and surgeons of the world, Charics 
H. Smith, a clerk in the Treasury De- 
partment, finaily died of acute indi 
tion at his desk. 

Smith lived at Deratur, N. Y 
after obtaining permission from iis 
mother, was mustered into the Seventy- 
sixth New York regiment at Cherry 
Valley. He fought with his regiment 
throughout the war and escaped injury 
until the first day’s fighting at the bat- 
tle of Gettysburg. The Seventy-sixth, 
Ninety-seventh = One Hundred and 
Forty-seventh New York regiments and 
the Fifty -sixth Pennsylvania Regimen 
were at the extreme right of the field. 
They were attacked in a cornfie!d b) 
the fty-eighth North Carolina and two 
Mississippi regiments. 

The slaughter was great 
went down -with a ball in 
thigh and ome in his left groin, which 
went through his body, coming out at 
the right hip. As the armies withdrew, 
Smith raised himself to attract atten- 
tion. As he did so, another ball struck 
him just above the left hip, going 
through the intestines, touching the 
spinal column and going out at the right 
hip. As he-fell_back, a shell burst just 
above him, tearing away a portion of 
his right hip. 

It was three days before Smith was 
found, and during all that tiine he had 
lain in the broiling sun and. without’ 

Smith was found on the night of July 
o, and was taken to what was know: 
as McPherson's Barn. He was wrapped 
in a blanket and laid in a cowshed 
The surgeons gave him no

as they did not believe he had a chance 
for Jife, and there were other case 

walting them. One surgeon told nim 
the large intestine had been twice eut, 
and that he would die within a few 
hours. It was also found that his blad- 
der had been punctured. 

On the following morning Smith was 
moved to a warehouse !n Gettysburg 
where his comrades fed him. He was 
finally taken to the home Rober 
Sheads, where he remained wu Octo- 
ber. 1864. 

From that time until the 
death Smith has always 
yards of eight-inch linen 
around his body. He found that wh: =

the hole in his hip in a partially digest- 
ed form 

Surgeons frequently examined Smit! 
wounds and all expressed the greatest 
surprise at his being alive. He was ex- 
amined by the surgeons attending Pres!- 
dent Garfield, as his wound was similar 
to the President’s. 

In appearance Mr. Smith was as 
healthy looking as any man. He ost 
little time from his duties, despite his 
wounds, and took a prominent part in 
lodge work.

Though Heater Was Burning 
Two Women and Boy Be- 
came Unconscious. 

Gas escaping from a heater in the 

bathroom of the residence of Mrs. J. M. : 

Newland, 1460A Belt avenue, all but 
caused the deaths of Mrs. Newland, her 
daughter, Miss Floy Newland, aged 18 
years, and her grandson, ‘Richard Nor- 
ton, aged 3 years, whose parents live in 
Troy, Mo. Saturday afternoon. 

Miss Fliy Newland, who, 
self almost overcome Dy gas, 

ered down the stairs and called 

rs. Solomon Eisinger who lives 
in the flat below. Mrs. FAsinger 
summoned Dr. W. H. Vail, 1464 Belt 
avenue, who found Miss Newland hating 
unconscious on the stairway. Mrs. New. 
land and her grandson were in a se rious 
condition upstairs. 

It required several hours’ work on Dr 
Vail's part to place the two women and 
the boy out of danger. 

The escaping’ gas was first noticed at 
3:80 m., while Mrs. Newland was 
bathing the child. fe noticed that the 
child seemed very weak though protest- 
ing against the bath, It was not until 
the boy became limp that Mrs. Newland 
became alarmed. She called her daugh- 
ter and together tHey tried to relieve the 
sufferer. It was not long before they, 
too, felt the influence of the gas It 
was then that Miss Newland, “leaving 
the others fainting, went to secure help. 

The gas heater burned all the while. 
indicating that poor connections allowed 
the leakage.

Cavern in Indian 

Territory Kills Men Who 

SecK to Explore Its 

ORE wonderful and = territve 

than anything that has come 

out of the Southwest in a 
long time the report- 
brought in to Davis, a town 


of the Indian Territory, by a 
party of local explorers 
which has just emerged from 
the Cave of Leath. They went in to search for 
the body of George Curtain, who left Davis last 
August to look for gold in the cave. He was ad 
vised that other men had lost their lives vent 
ing into this little known but much dreaded place. 
but he was unafraid, and slipped away. He neve 
returned. The Cave of Death swallowed him wp. 
as it had swallowed adventurous and foolhardy me! 
before him. 
A few days ago Matthew Duhr of Davis heade:' 
a movement to go to the cave and search for Cur 
tain’s body. The man had been almost a strange 
in Davis, but there was a growing feeling tha! 
the mystery of what happened should be 
solved, ot at least investigated to the extent of 
Jetermining that he had not been murdered. 
‘Several young men accompanied Duhr. The) 
were gone several days, and when they returned 
they brought Curtain’s hat. So much they had 
found, but no more of him; but they had looked 
mto a wonderland of which Davis had neve) 


fIt was known about the little plains city that 
there was # sitigularly-hidden ¢ave entrance be- 
hind the veil of Turner’s Falls, over on the Wichita 
River; eight miles from town; that in early days 
this ‘hidden” place had been the rendezvous of a 
gang of moonshiners whose hiding place had long 
escaped detection, though marshals had sought long 
for them and their still; and that several men. 
had sought to explore the depths of the cave, but 
had never returned to tell what they found. But 
the people of Davjs and the country around had 
no idea that, virtually under their feet, extends 
a great and wonderful and terrible cavern which, 
if it is to fulfill all it promised to the eyes of 
Duhr and his companions, must invite discovery as 
the most remarkable underground phenomenon in 
the United “States. 

Duhr and his friends wandered in the great cav- 
ern for two days. They stumbled upon the exit 
when they thought themselves lost. They were 
at first too much absorbed in the wonders revealed 
to take proper precautions against losing their way. 
They erept around back of the waterfall, crawled 
through the man-hole entrance upon hands anc 
knees, and descended into a chamber in which they 


| could stand upright. 

Lateral hails Jed out of this, and they followed 
the largest of these out into a huge and high- 
roofed room. Here were the dead fires of the old 
moonshiners, who had vanished behind the falls 
and laughed in their secret place while mounted 
marshals rode thunderously overhead. Here they 
had known the company of » woman, doubtless, for 
Duhr picked up a lady’s shoe. The moonshiners, 
apparently, had never penetrated beyond this large 
room; at least Duhr and his friends, who went 
into the depths of the place, found no further trace 
of them. The signs of men they did see were of 
prehistoric people who made rude pictographs upon 
the limestone walls. 

A thousand feet from the entrance the explorers 
found a sloping cliff running down into the black

Did the Chickasaws Know About the Big Cave ? 

HE Chickasaw Indians are thought to have known about the-Cave of Death, but if so they 
ay did not share with anv white man anything they knew of it. It is thought that, owing 
to the undiscoverable nature of its entrance, the Indians have possibly guarded the se-

Exciting Chases After Husbands. 

HEN, a few days prior to the date fixed for 
\ leading her to the altar, Julia Wexler 
diseovered that her fiance had taken 

- flight to avoid fulfilling his engagement, she did not 
give way to grief and tears. Made of sterner stuff 
‘than the generality of women, she was soon on his 

track. From Australia to America did she follow 
her deceitful lover, until she ran him to earth at 

Allentown, Pa., which he quitted only as a married 
man, | 
Repenting of his bargain, a young London clerk, 
who had engaged himself to a well-to-do spinster 
ef years, fled on the eve of his marriage to Paris, 

_ whence, on bearing that she whom he had spurned 

was in hot pursuit, he made his way to Italy and 
veached Naples. Herc he was unfortunately rebbed 
of what money he had, so that when in due course 

. he was discovered in a destitute state at a mean 

marriage party presented themselves. 
_ proceeded to ask the necessary questions, 
 ameng which was put to the prospective husband, 
a8 te whether he would take the weman for his 
wife. To which query the man, after a seeond’s 

hotel he was forced to surrender unconditionally to

sufficiently happy to warrant a second.” “Come, 
» exelaimed the Mayor, “you should have 
of that before you came here. You must

For a moment the bridegroom hesitated; then, 
} the remark.that it was never too late to avoid 

followed by the whole party, led “by the bride. 
Through the streets they ran, ironical cheers speed- 
ing them on their way, until at length, exhausted 
and panting, the quarry was captured by his in- 
censed fiancee, who led him to the Mairie, where the 
interrupted ceremony was brought te a conclusion. 
Manchester was some years since the scene of a 
somewhat similar episode. The wedding party had 
almost reached the chureh, when the bridegroom, 
whose courage was perchance not screwed up to 
sufficient pitch, suddenly broke away and made for 
an adjacent inn. But the bride and bridemaids were 
upon his heels, and, amid the uproarious laughter of 
such as were in the har, he was dragged forth by the 
collar, and, a few edo later safely married. 
Three years since a couple of the coster type 
were, with their friends. being driven in a four- 
wheeler to a North London church, there to cele- 
brate the most momentous ceremony ef their lives. 
Mueh rough chaff was bandied about, which at last 
so angered the bridegroom that he vowed he would 
have no more of it, and springing from the cab took 
to flight. After him tumbled his inamorata, and the 
next second she was in 9 hansom giving chase. The 
rug was brief and ésciting, and its issue would have 
been doubtful had not the bystanders, thinking that 
they had te de with » thief, laid hands upon the 
groom and delivered him over to his fair pursuer.

T has been left to that clever novelist. Mr. 
Bernard Shaw, to knock the conceit out of 
mankind, and he has achieved this at no 

small personal sacrifice. Twenty-five years ago 
a Mr. Bernard Shaw wrote a novel, called “The 
Irrational Knot,” and to the recent edition of 
the work the present Mr. Bernard Shaw says in 
the preface. “At present, of course, | am not the 
author of ‘The Irrational Knot.’ Physiologists in- 
form us that the substance of our bodies—and 
consequently of our souls—is shed and renewed 
at such a rate that no part of us lasts longer 
than eight years. I am, therefore, not now in 
any atom of me the person who @rote ‘The Ir- 
rational Knot’ jn 1880. The last of that author 
perished in 1888, and two of his successors have 
since joined the majority. Fourth of his line, I 
cannot be expected to take any very lively inter- 
est in the novels. of my literary great-grandfa- 

As mere laymen, it is no duty of ours to ques- 
tion the cenclusions arrived at by physiologists. 
We must sceept things and circumstanees as we 
find them; and if one of our cleverest authors is 
courageous enohigh to disclaim some of his best 
works, surely others must see that much of the 
hener shown te them fs misplaced. 

Mr. Shaw has set a fashion which seems likely 
to tie humanity into an irrationa) knot. For in- 
stance, take the married man who makes a boast 
of having heen married 40 years and brought up a 
family of 10 children, and see what vain egotism 
he indulges in. As a matter of fact, he is not 
married at all. He is merely the fifth in line 
of the man who married, and the probabilities are 

Sunday Magazine ST. LOUIS 


that there is not ah atom left of several of the 
original children of the marriage. The eldest @hil- 
dren of the family are, so to speak, orphans, and 
should be able to gain admittance, if they de- 
sired, to those institutions for the parentless. 

When this theory fs accepted as a substantia! 
faet we shall. of course, hear neo more about the 
question of pensions. The Ameriean politicians 
who can gain the support of the eleetors on this 
eight years’ lease of life theory will have done 
more for the United States than anyone else in 
the history of the nation. That country has 
more Civil War pensioners than there were men 
engaged. in the campaign, and yet every man is 
drawing money from the (rovernment for services 
rendered by others. There is not @ man living 
who fought in the Civil War; and, looking closer 
home, how can we possibly have Crimean vet- 

The hardest part of the irrational knot Mr. 
Bernard Shaw hat tied tor us, however, is in 
respect to our eriminal law. A few moments’ re: 
flection is sufficient to realize how monstrously 
ulfeir it acts upon many innocent members of 
the community. Scores, if not hundreds, of mam 
are today suffering imptisonment for no other 
reason than that they are the descendants in 
line of criminals’ The quest ion of the unemployed 
is a vital one, byt Parliament should tackie the 
criminal law first. Eight years’ imprisonment 
should be the maximum penalty for any crime, 
otherwise the innocent must suffer.

NMISTAKABLE evidence exists that 25 
years ago certain Hebrew engineers (in the 
time of King Heze-Kiah) executed exactly 

the same kind of work which was carried out in 
the Simplon tunnel, though perhaps on a slightly 
smaller scale. 

Dr. Bertholet, a professor at the University of 
Basle, is the gentleman who claims to have made 
this discovery. The Jewish records state that King 
Heze-Kiah, or Ezekias, who reigned at Jerusalem 
727 B. C., was much troubled at the bad state of the 
water supplied to the people of that city. He ac- 
cordingly had a vast reservoir made at the gates of 
the city, water was fed from various 
springs lying at greater or less distances from the 

to which 

reservoir in question. 

At first his project seemed doomed to failure, as 
there existed between Jerusalém and the springs 
from which the water was to be derived a high 

‘chain of hills, over which it would be impossible to 

convey the water. It was therefore determined to 
open a passage for the water through the solid rock. 
One of the Sirach MSS. dating from this peried

city by bringing ¥ ste, and he bored through

long. The distamce, as ! re ae, spetwem the two 

mouths of the tunnel is also only 360 yards, whieh 
proves that the work was not executed in a per- 
fectly straight line—due doubtless to the diffi- 
culties which the engineers eneountered in their 
task, which (for the period) was of a really marvel- 
eus nature. 

That the work was commenced from both ends 
of the tunnel is not only proved by the inscription,

the City Hall to light the new-City Hall, old City

and the time being too short to erect the plant, 

the Mayor vetoed the ordinance. 

On the following September when the bids were 
opened for lighting the public buildings, the city 
was surprised at receiving a bid for 61-4 cents

The most enthusiastic would not predict that this 

plant would pay for itself in less than three years, 

but the record shows that it paid the original in- 
vestment of $40,000 and $3,988.07 for interest and 
depreciation, all in 23 months, with a balance of 
$1310 on hand June 1, 1905, and on Dec. 1, 1905, 
the net balance was $13,290. 

We do not arrive at these results by charging 
the plant with 13 cents per K. W., the price paid 

the lighting companies at the time the plant was | 

authorized, but we accept the competitive rate 
established by the lighting companies, which at

under the most favorable conditions, an ex- 

periment full of risk, it must seem little 
short of madness for a man to link his life with a 
woman whom he has never once set eyes on; and 
yet the venture has been made more than once with 
happy results. 

It was only quite recently that a young mer-

wife, a lady whom until the moment of meeting he 
never even seen. This singular matrimonial 
romance—by no means unusual in the Netherlands 
—came about thus. Some years ago the brother of

practice medicine, and had lost his heart to the 
pretty daughter of a brother physician in Cape 



and before two years 
had elapsed the girl had become engaged to the 
of her dead fiance, 6000 miles and more

enough to fetch his bride, the marriage ceremony 
was performed by proxy in South Africa and the 
bride immediately started for Holland to meet the 
husband whom she had not yet seen in the

of‘ Emporia. On the night of December 18 the 
wreckers went out and removed the spikes and 
fishplates along the length of three rails, using 
a clawbar and monkey wrench. When the west- 
bound Texas and Oklahoma train came along at 
3 o’clock in the morning it fell into the trap and 
plunged into the ditch, killing the engineer and

“~The Mystery of the Wreck. 
“On. the night of May 14 last the same train 
was wrecked in the same way within a mile of 
the same place. The wreck was attended by much 
_ the same cost to life and limb, and the same dam- 
; age to property. On that night the wreckers took 
the fishplates away and drew the spikes, leaving | 
_ three rails upon each side in place, but unsecured. | 
_ The engine ran over them, but they flew up behind

The wreck in May followed two similar attempts

brought to bear upon the mystery all its vast re-

Just why this is not the most profitable branch — 
f the business does not appear to a new beginner, — 
and, as a matter of fact, squab raisers will tell you — 
that it is at the present time. There is a big de 
mand for breeders. Frank H. Shonts, before quoted, 
had occasion recently to sell some of his birds after — 
selling his home, and hefore he settled in a new lo- 
cation. He advertised them in the Post-Dispatch 
and in a pigeon journal, and had orders for many — 
times the number he offered for sale. Similar experi: — 
ences are common with people who advertise breed- 
ers for sale. - 
But pigeons for breeding purposes, squab raisers 
explain, are being purchased by peoplé who afe en 
gaged in the business or who propos@ going into it: 
The demand for squabs is. wider. It comes from peo- 
ple who eat them, and the more-they eat the mom 
they want. There are a number of squab-faising — 
enthusiasts in St. Louis, most of them in the buei- 
ness in a small way, a few having a good lot--of

oair of birds would be cut almost half in two. 

A remarkable fact should be borne in. mind in 
this connection. When you have fed'your old birds 
you have also fed the young. Squabs are fed from 
the mouths of the old birds on what is termed “pigeon 
milk.” From the time a squab is born until it is

means of recreation for the man who is employed 
all day in shop, office or factory. 
» Squabs can be raised on your own back lot. You 
don’t have to make an expensive investment in land. 
Ruildings are small and simple. The birds are not 
objectionable to your neighbors, as chickens some- 
Himes are, but, on the contrary, a pen of squab- 
@iging pigeons is usually the center of interested 
admiration for the whole neighborhood. There is a 
market for squabs at all seasons of the year, and 
they can be raised in any climate, cold or hot, with 
equal success. In St. Louis they do particularly 
ell, requiring practically no extraordinary atten-

for their equabs is greater than they can supply. 
a are young pigeons. They sell at 50, 60 and 
‘76 cents @ pair in the local market, when they are 
four to five weeks old, and a pair of pigeons will 
see from seven to ten equabs a year. Breeders 
originally, frem $1.50 to $3 a pair. They begin 

‘in they are five or six months old, and 
birds will continue to raise young 

ten years. If you don’t care to sel) the 

46 cents a pair from their nests 

keep them until they begin to breed and 

at the age of five months for from §1.50 

| Attractive as these prices and possibilities secm, 
w ver, St. Louis breeders say that equabs would 
mii for much better prices if more of them were 
taiged here. Under the present eonditions practical- 
fmo equabs are sold to the hotels and cafes by 


/ Louis men. Those that appear on the bills of

but usually squabs are not ~ pait of the St. Leuts 
bill of fare. ‘Not: enough of them are raised in St. 
Louis to supply the kitchen of a big hotel regularly, 
and hotels that offer squabs as a part of their menu 
do not care to be compelled to scratch the item off 
in the middle of a meal. 

This condition also keeps the dining car companies 
operating out of St. Louis from placing squabs on 
their bills of fare. A visit to the office of a dining 
car company brought the information that they 
would be glad to have squabs and would pay good 
prices for them, but they do not want a smal! num- 
ber. If vou are able to offer them several hundred

regular, the dining car company wil! then take your 
squabs. Likewise, practically all of the larger ho- 
tels and cafes of the city will agree to take a 
specified number of squabs at a good price—never 
under 560 cents a pair, and usually over—if you will 
convince the manager that you can furnish him 
with all the squabs his patrons will eat. But 1! 
you have only a half dozen pairs of squabs a day, 
er even fifteen or twenty a day, to offer the dining 
car and hotel buyers, you cannot do a very satis- 
factory business with them. They inight be able 
to fill their bill of fare from several different sources, 
but that is too complicated, uncertain and expensive 
@ proceeding. 

However, the St. Louis man with a half dozen to 
fifteen or twenty squabs per day is not left without 
a market because the big hotels and the dining car 

companies cannot use his comparatively small out- 
put. As a matter of fact, if you have a squab 
“plant” that will turn out from half a dozen to 
twenty squabs a day you have a well developed busi- 
ness. That means from 30 te 100 squabs a week 
for the market, allowing for the ones you eat your- 
self, the ones you save to sell later as breeders, 
and the ones you save to increase your own flock. 
And these, at the lowest probable price you would 
be offered for them—50 cents « pair—would bring 
you in from %7.50 to $25 a week. 

It is more likely, however, that the man who 
goes into the squab business’ on his back lot will 
start with much less output than half a dozen 
squabs a day. One beauty of the business is that 
there is no minimum point at which you «ed sta.t 
in squab raising, lf you have only « > pair of 
pigeons they will raise you from seven ‘> ten pairs 
of squabs in the vear, vud those seven oy ten squabs 
ean be disposed of at practically the tasne margin 
of profit as would be the case if you | ad 50 pairs 
of pigeons at work. But a room 10x12 is considered 
ample for from 50 to 100 pairs of birds, so that the 
extent you can carry on the business in limited quar- 
ters is thus readily and concretely shown. 

Cost of a Pigeon House. 

To build a house with nests, water troughs and 
all conveniences will cost, according to an approxt- 
mate estimate made by Frank N. Sohns, 715 Locust 
street, who has what has been termed “a model 
pigeon house,” about §1 per pair of birds. This av- 
erage cost would be lessened in the case of a large 
number of birds, and would not be increased pro- 
portionately to any great extent, if at ell, if quar- 
ters were being constructed for a smaller number. 
Cost of quarters is largely a matter of individual 
selection, however, and the amount of money you 
spend depends to a certain degree to your own 
judgment and ingenuity. A high estimate is that 
it will cost $l a year per pair to feed the old birds. 
Even in St. Louis, where the city man would prob- 
ably be compelled te buy his feed in small quanti- 
ties, it is doubtful if the feed bill amounts te more 
than this estimate, for this is a land where the 
feed required is native. If one went into squad 
raising to the extent that he could afford to buy 
feed at wholesale prices, the cost of keeping a 

for maintenance, except in the indirect way that 
you feed its parents. Old birds require more food 
while raising young, but the estimate of $1 a year is 
made for working pigeons. Many people put the 
estimate as low as 50 cents per year per pair, but 
it is desired to treat the subject conservatively 

At a cost of $1.50 te $8 per pair for breeders, or 

St. Louis Squab Situation at a 


Demand exceeds supply. 

Owing to peculiar local conditions, demand 
and price will increase with supply. 

Present h1:eeders: find ready market for all 
they raise.

from seven to ten pairs of squabs. 

Squabs will sell at 50 to 75 cénts a pir. 

Parent pigeons continue fo raise «juabs 
for ten vears. 

Squabs require no feed; parent Lirds feed 
them with “pigeon milk” until they ere

an average of $2.25 per pair, estimating $1 ptr pair 
for houses, troughs, etc., and allowing $1 for feed 
for the old birds, for the first year a pair of squab- 
raising pigeons would cost $4.25. On the other 
hand, they will raise from seven to ten pairs of 
squabs. These will sell at present market, for from 
50 to 75 cents per pair. At an average of eight and 
one-half pairs each year and an average price of 
60 cents per pair, your returns would amount to 
$5.10, leaving you an earning of 85 cents on each 
pair of pigeons the first year, counting the cost of 
your birds and of a place to keep them as a part 
of the first year’s expense. 

Profits After First Year. 

Your pens and heures will de service for many 
years, of course, and your pigeons, having paid for 
themselves and their home the first year, besides 
earning you a nice profit, will continue to raise 
just as good squabs for the next eight or ten years 
as they did at first. After the first year yeu have 
nothing to figure as expenses other than the cost of 
feeding your birds, for there is # bye product which 
will more than keep up little repeirs and ordinary 
expenses. And (this being a conservative estimate) 
you may do even better than is pointed out here. For 
instance, there is apparently absolutely no doubt 
in the minds of St. Leuis squab raisers about the 
market prices of squabs getting better as the num- 

ber raised here becomes greater. Where they not 
get from $3 a dozen up for squabs they expect to 
get mot less than $4 a dozen for them when the 
market is well supported, and as much as $5.50—the 
latter a price at which a New York comnmi@esion 
merchant recently advertised for unlimited quanti- 
ties and failed, even with that price and latitude, 
to get as many as he wanted. 

If you happen to get the high instead of the av- 
erage yfrice on your squabs—which, aecording to 
men familiar with the local condition of market 
and squab raising say is more likely than that 
you will get the lew price—then your birds have 
paid for themselves the first year and made you 
enormous interest cn your investment. 

As if these possibilities were not sufficiently al- 
luring to the man of small means—and small back 
yard—there is another branch of this business which 
looks extremely profitable to one inclined teward 
it. If you keep your breeders until they are five 
or six months old you can sell them for breeding 
purposes for from $1.50 to $3 a pair, aecording to 
their condition. And if some of your birds have 
developed into good flyers you may win some valua- 
ble prizes with them and get a fancy price if you 
care to sell them.

just made on the coast of Ice- 
land is unexpectedly aiding 
Charles E. Rilliett, a St. Louis 
explorer, in an efiort to or- 
ganize an expedition for an at- 
tack upon the North Pole by a 
new route and in an_ untried 
way. Iceland fishermen have picked up an ice- 
scarred cask bearing a plate etampéd “Philadelphia 
Geographical Society, U. 8. A.,” and the announce- 
ment that the cask wes cast into the sea off the 
north coast of Alaska in 1900. 

Sixty days before this news came from Iceland, 
Mr. Rilliett had returned to St. Louis from the sec- 
ond Ziegler expedition, urging St. Louisans of 
wealth to assist him in an attempt to find the Pole 
by drif. g through Behring Strait. His plan is to 
lodge wi ‘he polar ice and drift to the Pole upon 
anorthw: pelar current. He has spent five years 
in the Arctic, and is convinced that there is such a 
current. His proposition was to sail northward to 
a junction with it at about the 170th parallel of 
west longitude. 

Mr. Rilliett’s plan was not received with much 
enthusiasm when he announced it three months ago. 
St. Louisans had never backed such an undertaking. 
and one scheme for reaching the North Pole looked 
to them pretty much like another. But the discov- 
ery upon the coast of Iceland puts a new and 
promising face upon the whole matter. It com- 
mands respect for Mr. Rilliett as an explorer, who 
knew what he was talking about. 

. The presence of the cask where it was recently 

_found.. proves; to the satisfaction of science, that 

the northwest polar current to the Goal of Goals, 
which Mr. Rilliett had foreseen, is an actual phe- 

nomenon which invites attack upon the Pole by this 

new route and promises more than anything else 
that«has developed out of Jong study of this tre- 
mendous subject. 

Rilliett’s fri .ds, many of whom are experienced 
explorers who sc.ved with him upon both the Zieg- 
ler expeditions, consider that, inasmuch as he had 
anticipated the eask in pointing this natural way 
to the..Pole, he should have the first crack at it. 
They believe that what has happened should not 
enable someone else to rob him of his thunder, but 
that {¢ should be the means of boesting him along. 
The practicability of his theory has been almost 
unanswerably proven in a manner as emphatic as it 
was unforeseen. 

- He has now a means of effectively combatting any 
presumption that he is a visionary. He can discard 
& great deal of the decumentary evidence which he 
has prepared to lay before wealthy men whose aid 
he sought, and may now make almost his entire 
case.with the one big fact of the discovery of the 
cage upon the coast of Iceland. 

a Here in St. Louis Mr. Rilliett’s friends feel that. 
he éffers a wonderful opportunity to St, Louis. The 
North Pole is the greatest scientific goal remaining

ling hardships, hungers to get back in their midst 
These friends believe that if an organized effort 
were made to secure a St. Louis subscription 0! 
some $250,000 for Mr. Rilliett, it would succeed. 
They point out that less roseate promises bring 
forth many such subscriptions in the East and in 
other countries. Why not in St. Louis, with this 
splendid chance? 

Given an equipment, there is no reasen that Mr. 
Rilliett’s friends can see why he should not become 
the object of great expectations. He is in all] re- 
spects an expert in Arctic matters. He has lon: 
ago chosen his crew from the ranks of those wit! 
whom he was associated upon the Ziegler expedi. 
tions. He would have none but men tempered iu 
the Arctic blasts, some of them brought over here 
from Norway, Denmark and Sweden because of Mr. 
Rilliett’s profound respect for the exceptional value 
of thease Norsemen in this sort of work. 

He would const®uct at Seattle or San Franciscc 
a ship especially designed for work in the ice. He 
would take only half as many men as Ziegler’s expe- 
ditions took, and would demand that even his sci- 
entific staff be hard-knit, practical fellows who can 
pull on an oar or push a sledge.

taught him one thing above all else. That isthe 
necessity that every man in an expedition of this 
sort should be fitted by nature for Arctic work. He 
says this necessity is so great that a leader can. 
not afford to take chances upon a@ single individual. 
This is the reason he would organize his foree en-

is dangerous. It is discouraging. Once the polar

after they get cold, he is temperamentally unsuited 
to the work, and will certainly, in some crisis, fail 
of his responsibility. Mr. Rilliett wants only men 
who love the Arctic as a polar bear loves it and who 
won't whimper when the Arctic penalizes them for 
this expensive infatuation.

This was particularly true of the best evidence 
preceding that of the cask found in Iceland. This 
was the finding, on the west coast of Greenland, of 
bits of wreckage from the Jeannette, which foun- 
dered north of the New Siberian Islands. Nansen 
could only believe that this wreckage drifted across 
the Pole. The relics included a manuscript list of 
the Jeannette’s boats and provisions, signed by De 
Long, her commander. They were embedded in ice.

westward’ drift along the east coast of Greenland,

It is just this that Mr. Rilliett purposes doing.

adrift just north of Point Barrow, and in the five

wood into the Arctic Ocean in their flood season, 
and it is regarded as a certainty that considerable 
of this drifts over to the Western Hemisphere. 
Holm found, on the extreme northeast coast of 
Greenland, a village of Eskimos, who make their 
houses of wood which comes to them in this way 
and some of their implements of iron hoops which 
come thousands of miles from barrels cast out upon

Along with this order of march for authede prom-

for the ball room. Not to know them is to argue 
yourself unknown. So the ‘etiquette of (ie dance

the two-step are to take the place of peeves and — 
the lanciers, and are to be paramount above at, other:

' know how to waltz and waltz well, even if they 
cannot go through the intricate measures of the 
minuet de la cour. They must also know the cor-

‘no other. To elutch one’s partner violently, to hold 
the arms stifly extended, stamps one as behind the

society sanctions must be danced well. Iv is merely

tbout it all that the kidnapers were foiled. 

Mirs. Peacock recently ‘has taken hand in b» 
coming pieturesque, too, by socially boycotting 
voung Mrs. Nesbitt-Thaw. Yet they tell how, whe: 
Vrs, Cornegie was shopping in New York years ago 
velting together her wedding trousseau, she had to

Mir. Peacock.”

Andrew Carnegie was told by his intended of the 
young man in the store from his own town in

The purpose of the game is to arrange the twenty picture séctions numbered 
from 5 to 100 in the blank squares under the. word “Bing,”’ using the five sec- 
tions in the upper left-hand corner as a pattern. Cut out thd twenty picture 
sections and the sixteen squares numbered from 1 to 16. Mix these squares to- 
gether face downwards on the table, Each player then draws one square and the 
one getting the highest number has the first play, the one with the second highest 
number the second play and so on. The first player chooses the picture section 
withthe highest number and places it in the blank square where it belongs. ‘I’ne 
second player takes the section with the next highest number and the game pro- 
ceeds thus until each person has played once. Then the numbered squares are 
mixed together and the play is continued as described until the blank sectioms are 
all filed. The numbets on the picture sections are recorded as the plays are made 
and at the end the player having the largest total of these numbers wins the 

Should any player fail to place his picture section in the proper square he 
loses the number on that section and forfeits his turn.
