Mich- CHICAGO, Aug. local paper says that one of the largest swindles ever attempted in Chicago has just been un- earthed. It appears that; title deeds have been forged covering half a sec- tion of land valued at to SI, 000. The property belongs to Mrs. Hetty R. Green, the richest woman in the world. It is situated between and Sixty-third streets, west of Western; avenue, this city. The forged deeds are still in the hands ol the forgers, as far as known. It was the attempt to borrow money on some of the property and dispose of other tracts of it In this city through tbo forged papers that the truth became known. It is believed that the 'forgers have gained nothing in this city yet by their crime. Through the filing of a bill in chancery to quiet a title to the property Mrs. Green's interests have been pro- tected. This move was made against the advice of Chief of Police McClaughey and Chief Inspector Rose. They fear the criminals havec been warned by the litigation and given a chance to escupe that will prevent their capture by the detectives employed on the case. The first knowledge received by any person that deeds were being fofged on the property came to John G. real estate agent. He informed the police that Vincent Mallie had at- tempted to negotiate a trade with him for five acres of land and that on in- vestigation he had discovered Mallie's claim to the land had been based on a forged deed. Mallie told him he ob- tained the document from Jos. R. An- derson, of Hammond, Ind., who was the grantee named. Mr. has not been found. The bill in chancery calls upon him to come into court and prove his claim. Anderson is thought to be a man of straw, set up by myth. T. C. Lewis brought Mallie to Mr. Earle's office to negotiate the trade, and the proposition was made that Earle accept the title to five acres of the property, in lieu of the amount Lewis was indebted to Earle through an earlier transaction. Attorney Bisbee has been Mrs. Green's attorney for many years. He says there was but one deed nnd that it covered the entire 320 acres. But an- other deed is out for forty acres, prob- ably running from Anderson to a third party. It was this deed that some per- son presented to the Central Trust Co., attempting at the same time to nego- tiate a loan on it. The Title and Guar- antee Co., too, was npproached. At the latter place Mr. Sellers, the man- ager, discovered the forgovy and put out a bait to catch the man. The filing of the bill to quiet the title probably frightened him away for he has not 3'ct made his appearance at the title office. ________________ Why Cholera Corpses Appear to He Alive. VTKXNA, Aug. Frey, an ex- pert in matters pertaining to cholera, writes to the newspapers that in the ex- perience of himself and other doctors, the notion prevailing among ignorant persons that cholera patients were often buried alive may be attributed to the fact that three hours after death the bodies of victims of the scourgo become distorted by muscular con- tractions, often lasting for hours. These contractions arc taken by the persons mentioned as indicating thai life still exists in bodies, and as the remains of cholera patients arc interrei as soon after death as possible, these people imagine that the patients arc buried before life is really extinct. Somcrby'B AH KlgJtt. IxDiAXAVoLifl, Ind., Aug. plaintiffs in the suit for a receiver for the Iron Hall have proposed that the supreme oflicers abdicate, pending an investigation of the order's accounts by plaintiffs and experts all legal proceed- ings to be temporarily abandoned. This was rejected. The executive committee now reports that it 1ms examined Su- preme Justice Somerby's accounts anc that arc flawless. The committee suggests that J. S. Say res. of Philadel- phia, and Albert Baker, of Indianapolis, go over the accounts with the commit- tee. It is probable the receivership case will never come to trial. Attempted IMUircler Suicide. GUTHBIE, O. T., Aug. Patter- son, of Crescent City, at midnight se- cured a double-barreled shotgun, walked in her night clothes to her lover's house, called him out and shot him. Thinking she had killed him she placed the muzzle of the gun in her mouth, and with her bare feet pulled the trigger, her brains being blown out. Her lover was unharmed. Jealousy was the cause. Getting Hack at Hreckinridpe, CHICAGO, Aug. is more than probable that at an early meeting of tho ceremonies committee of the World's fair action will be taken in opposition to Congressman Breckinridge, of Ken- tucky, as orator of the day on tho occa- sion "of the dedicatory exorcises. Ev- erybody around exposition headquar- ters is disgruntled at the attitude of Mr. Breckinridge against tho passage of the appropriation bill. Another Ocean Trip.

England, fiunslu and Chlua Mixed Up Ore tho Question RusMan LONDON, Aug. Even domestic politics are overshadowed by the gravity of the news from Pamir. China and Great Britain are both moving in de- fence against Russian aggression, while the Afghans also lay claim to part of the disputed territory and. are attempting to hold it against both the Chinese and the Russians. A dispatch from Pekin states that the Chinese government is already on the alert, and explanations have been de- manded from both Russia and Afghan- istan for encroaching upon territory claimed by the Chinese. The Chinese'forces in the Pamir re- gion, commanded by Gen. Chang, with- out waiting for any explanations, have already encountered the Afghans in a bloody conflict at Samultash.

The amount of fog gash on the breast near the heart and haze which a beam of light would traverse between the earth and Mars, when the latter is high above the horizon, Mr. Gal- ton says, could not exceed that along an earthy ten-mile. Therefore the same proportion between the size of the mirror and the distance holding true, it follows that the flash from many mirrors simultaneously, whose aggregate width was fifteen yards, and and whose aggregate length, to allow for slope was, say, twenty-five yards, would be visible on Mars if seen through a telescope like that at the Lick observ- atory, in California, and the inhabi- tants, if they have eyes and fairly-good telescopes, would speculate concerning the beam, and would wish to answer.

PAUL, Minn., Aug. which was the Jewish Sabbath, at in the afternoon, the hour when the de- scendants of Jacob meet to pray and listen to a discourse from a rabbi, the synagogue of the Sons of Jacob was filled with devout worshipers. A stranger rabbi, for such he was taken to be, arose and began to preach in the Hebrew tongue. He was clever and the audience was much taken with him. Suddenly he be- gan to preach Christ crucified. A match dropped into a can of pqwder could not have created a greater com- motion. Instantly the congregation was on its feet demanding that the man be put out of the house. The man continued to preach Christ as though talking to the most appre- ciative audience, and a moment later everybody made a rush for him at once. He attempted to defend himself, but was knocked down, and, after his head was well thumped on the floor, and thro'wn out of. the synagogue, the stranger took the hint and concluded that he was not wanted there. It seems that the stranger was a con- verted Polish Jew named Nathaniel Friedman, who lives at 626 Lawson street. He claims that he was invited there by a prominent member of the Sons of Jacob, and told that he might preach a short sermon. Friedman stated Sunday evening that he would bring suit against the Sons of Jacob to recover damages for the in- juries, etc, Friedman is not seriously hurt, but has some big bumps on his head, which he received by having his head bumped on the floor.
