Jiirchall was spoken of an "nervy" be- he to the gallows without flinching, and a calmly planned suicide is often alluded to in the same manner. The term "nerve" thus being seemingly applicable to nil the wide range of human or actions cited above, a definition therefor would appear in order differing slightly from the one adopted by the dic- tionary makers.

The oCieial le-ttow used to convey orders to the deputy warden of San Quentin have the address printed on them, and Bach- nian. beinjr a man of skill aud some pro- fessional exjierience, occasionally had charge of tiie- mail- He soon formed" a ring with the other mail handlers. They procured anumberof envelopes and were thus able to opeu the official mail, read and reseai it without detection. They seemed ia a t.iir way to make a profitable traffic in the secrets thus obtained when Bachman trie.1 too big a job and was rausht. William Phelps, an old man who U serving a life sentence for murder, has several bundled dollars on deposit in the warden's hands. Bachman indnced him to employ a lawyer, did the writing for him. and him with the hope of get- tins n pardon Finally Bachman forged a check upon the warden with Phelps' sig- nature and a note of approval by the proper official. The warden accepted both, and aliout to draw the check (it was nominally payable to the lawyer) when a penitentiary official who knew Bachmau's tricks railed in tiie convict Phelps and the check was proved to be a forgery. It is scarcely nece.-s.iry to add that the peculiar talents of Mr. and the peculiar method': of penitentiary management have excited some astonishment in Call fornia.__________________ The Indian acen.-y is now the "storm center" of the wild northwest, as tbe In- di.-ins there h.ive. according to accounts.
