From the New York Sun, Policeman Joseph Weinberg acj Palmer of the Mulberry street police, dragged into the Tombs Police Court, yesterday E.hvard Dowd a stout, powerful yonng man.

When Dowd i.- out late at night, instead of ringing at the front door lie quietly over a feica, and climbs up tire escape. His wife, who was crying bitterly yesterday, said: ''I always leave the window nncatched, for E I. always entered that wny.

I cried to them to let up; that I lived in that house, but all I got was, 'Club tha---------to death.' The first I knew Weinberg screened out, 'I'm and then fell down in a faint. I don't know what took place after that, for I must have faint- ed they clubbed me so hard." "There were enough of them." added "even if I had shown fight, to have arrested me, but I was nothing wrong, any way.

The most modest girl in the country is dead now. She refused to leave u burning building in South Bend, In- diana, because she was in her iiijrhl clothes. Tnat was a pretty unmpliment paid by a of ihu Chinese Embassy recently to a young lady. G.'izing down at her really pretty thu Oriental remarked: "I love your Eng- lish large feets." A Michigan tramp who has been shot at five times by farmers' wives, sayi he has only to watch tlie end of the gun to avoid the contents, us a woman always shuts bnth eyes when She pulls tlie Free Presi. The Home for Friendless Girls at Deptford, Eigland, was a murderous fraud. Liuva Addiscott, its founder matrou, was assiduous in solicit- ing subscriptions, while she slowly starved the inmates on short rations of "bread, molasses, and oatmeal. Four little k'lrU died, and an investi- gation disclosed the wretcliedue-s of the place. The woman was tried on B charge of manslaughter, and narrowly .escaped Her Husband's Keturo.

Wheu only n moderately slnmg current of electric'ity is desired, it is outlined by densely' populating thu small fl inr of the case, which is Hindu of sheet copper, that being the best conductor. The electricity thus irenc'i'atud charges the copper floor of tile cage, and as it cannot pass off to the ground through the glass insula- tors it seeks its exit over the wires that are connected by sok'ering to each ond of ihu copper plate. For Lteni'i'ating a powerful current, the cats are carefully and securely lied till to tail in pairs, and by thu loop formed they are siispt-uded frvm a heavy insulxted copper rod that passes longitudinally through the c to the ends of which are attached the telcgraiil) or telephone lines.
