By Scott Campbell author of a saved by death a a Green goods a a the smugglers daughter a etc., Etc copyright 1891. Chapter i. An accidents of what a who is in no. 76, or. Curtis anyone a a a undoubtedly mrs. Granger we were filled to the limit last night. What is the trouble a a not any except that i can neither unlock the door nor make the inmate Quot is the key inside a Quot it must be. I think. I cannot insert a nothing wrong then i guess it is Only to of clock. Probably some night prowler is laying in a Stock of sleep. Seventy six a a and the speaker Day clerk in a Well known metropolitan hotel carelessly brushed Over a Leaf of the Register and ran his Eye Down the Page. Quot seventy six Here it is. Augusta Maine a a lady evidently and ladies mrs. Granger Are capricious creatures a he added laughing lightly in the face of the buxom housekeeper who in a White apron and Dainty Cap stood just outside the office counter and twirled about her shapely Finger a Bunch of keys attached to her Waist by a Long tape. Quot capricious creatures mrs. Granger i let her sleep if she wants to Shell probably put in an appearance before Quot if she done to you la see me again shortly a returned the other avoiding with a Blush the Sportive Wink bestowed upon her. Quot delightful anticipation i assure you a was the Quick rejoinder. Whatever direction an a diverted train of thought would have taken it was suddenly changed by the address of a gentleman standing near by. And who during the Brief conversation recorded had been lolling carelessly against the clerks desk and gazing with thoughtful eyes Over the several readers of the morning papers who were seated about the office. Quot i will pay my Bill or. Curtis a he said quietly. Or. Curtis came out from himself with a slight Start and running his fingers through his Blond Pompadour said slowly Quot yes. Certainly you a r the stranger for such he evidently was. Answered Tho clerk s implied inquiry by moving along to the Register and placing a the tip of his forefinger opposite a name thereon. Quot yes certainly or. May lodging Only a i blandly queried the functionary Back of the counter. Quot i was in to breakfast a replied or. May v moderately and tendered a Bill in payment. He was in no Way an extraordinary looking person. His dress betokened him a gentleman. And his easy bearing was that of a Man used to the world. He might have been 30 Odd though would readily have passed for 30 and when the clerk turned again from his desk he had disappeared. Or. Curtis marked with his pen against the strangers name on the Register the familiar sign indicating his payment and departure. The name was upon the next line below that of Augusta Mayne a fact which brought Back to the observers mind the recent visit at his desk of . Somehow he Felt half inclined to Send to her and learn if Tho i Raate of no. 70 had been heard from yet the probability of anything wrong was so slight that his momentary inclination died within him. It was a common occurrence for a guest to sleep soundly till High noon. Why then should he borrow trouble in this Case he did not he mounted a Stool behind the desk and buried himself in a morning pacer. Nearly an hour had parsed when or. Curtis was again brought Back to a forgotten topic by Tho hurried re approach of mrs. Granger. Quot come up stairs at once or. Curtis a she said excitedly. A a in be tried in vain to Rouse 7c, and get the door open. There a a Strong smell of Gas at the Keyhole a Quot no a exclaimed the Youngman. Jumping Down from his seat and. Thoroughly roused divining clearly what too frequently occurs. Quot give me your key. Go and notify or. Barnes. Done to Lej these people see that anything is the or. Barnes referred to was the proprietor of the hotel the people the guests a about the office. It is about equally unpleasant to both to know that a poor unfortunate has perhaps suicide or come to an untimely end at such uncomfortable nearness. Mrs. Granger hurried away to do As she was Bidden while or. Curtis came quickly from his enclosure to stride rapidly through the office Down a richly carpeted Hall and up the stairs. Despite his precautions the scene had been observed by a Man who was loitering absently about the office an elderly gentleman with a smoothly shaven face which though wrinkled slightly about the eyes by his 60 years gave no other evidence of a waning of Youthful vitality. Ile was dressed in a ready made suit of Gray which did not set off to any advantage his sturdy figure seasoned like a Pine knot by time and he seemed suddenly to expand then wilfully relax when his Clear Gray eyes noted the occurrence at the clerks counter. After a Swift glance about the office he followed or. Curtis Down the corridor and upstairs and arrived almost with the door of room no. 76. A what s the trouble a he asked blandly at once. Quot of its you. Or. Boxe a exclaimed Curtis turning quickly for he had not heard tile others step Down the heavily carpeted Hall. Quot i did not see you Quot i just came in. What a the matter can to you make the key work a Quot no there a something wrong inside. I m afraid a a let me see a interrupted or. Boxe with something like a mild Assumption of authority and pushing the other to one Side he dropped to his knee before the door and applied an Eye to the Keyhole. Not for Long however for quickly detecting the distressing odor of escaping Gas he Rose suddenly saying Quot there something wrong the Gas is on. Is there no other Entrance Quot Quot no ifs a single Quot any occupant a Quot alas i fear a then the lock must be forced a said or. Boxe decidedly and stepping Back a Little himself full Force against the door. It gave no sign of yielding despite the heavy blow and before the Endeavor could be repeated the voice of or. Barnes the proprietor who had entered the corridor with mrs. Granger from whom lie had Learned All was heard calling to a Bell boy at a Remote end of the dim Hall a a there a a Short Iron bar in my office bring it at once a the boy seemed to appreciate the emergency and disappeared like a Flash Aud while waiting his return or. Curtis made a vain Effort to open the wooden transom Over the door. A a it a no use a he said finally a it s secured Quot that a Odd a exclaimed or. Barnes who with toe bookkeeper and several occupants of adjoining rooms who had been attracted to the Hall by Tho disturbance were now gathered about Tho door of no. 76. Quot i instruct All my Bein to set the transoms partly open. Von eau see for yourself. Or. Boxe to added to that individual who seemed Sud Deni v to have drawn into himself like a Snail into its Shell and the anxious proprietor waved his hand Down the Hall and Over each door could he seen the corroboration of his assertion. Or. Boxe bowed gravely and remarked in the Blandes of tones Quot i and he seemed not Only to have seen but to have arrived at a conclusion. Or. Barnes turned to the clerk and demanded nervously Quot who has the room do you remember a a a lady transient she came last night i a yes. Yes Quot put in mrs. Granger in quivering tones associated Well with her Fleshy tremulous figure Quot and being a lady inside i took special liberties to try add Rouso her before a Quot Here is the Doy a interposed or. Boxe quietly and taking from the youths hand a Short Iron crowbar he forced it Between the door and the Jamb and with a Quick movement immediately suggestive of proficiency in such an emergency he snapped the Bolt and Flung Tho Portal open. There was a Rush of confined Gas into the Hall which caused several to draw Back and half choking turn away their Heads. A glance into the room seemed to convey a fund of information to or. Boxe. Quot you people remain outside a he commanded sharply to the curious and eager guests a momentary Flash seeming to fire his great eyes and throwing Back his coat he revealed a Small Silver badge glittering on the Collar of his Vest. Then despite the oppressive atmosphere freighted to suffocation with Coal Gas he strode across the room and Tore aside the heavy draperies before the windows As he Flung the latter open wide a flood of refreshing morning air and sunlight swept into the apartment. Immediately a suppressed murmur of horror Rose from those about the open door. Their most dire Ful anticipations Wero realized. Upon the bed and with features distorted by strangulation Lay the lifeless form of a Young woman. Quot Good god a exclaimed the exercised pro Priston and was about to Spring towards her. When or. Boxe again interfered laying a forceful hand upon his Arm. Quot she has been dead for hours a he said decisively pointing to Tho inanimate form upon the bed. A you can do her no Good and May perhaps do much harm. Take my advice willingly please if not a and the Light in his steadfast eyes Bent upon the somewhat angered proprietor began to glow More brightly a i must command you to do Quot certainly certainly a acquiesced or. Barnes nervously. Quot it is fortunate that you Are Here. What a to be done a or. Boxe coolly reached up to the chandelier overhead and shut off the Gas. Though surprised to find that the Stop revolved completely instead of being hold As usual by a rivet when closed he evinced no emotion but made a mental memorandum of the fact. Quot Send first for the medical examiner a he said quietly and tearing a Sheet from a Small note Book taken from his docket he scribbled an address thereon and. Turning to the boy standing Awe struck at the door he added a take that at once at once mind and you or. Curtis had Best resume your duties below. There is no occasion for excitement it looks like an Quot certainly of course a assented the clerk yielding at once to that quiet but irresistible air of authority in the other and he departed with the boy in the direction of the office. Quot who is that old cock a demanded the latter rather As if he Felt himself imposed upon As they descended the stairs. Quot he a got an allowance of nerve to Start right in to run this thing a Quot he a exclaimed Curtis rather scornfully. Quot do you mean to say that you done to know him a Quot know him a not Quot Well its not much to be wondered at. He done to give himself away much for the Sake of posing on his reputation. That Man. My boy is Philip Boxe. The detective. Quot what a ejaculate the widening Oyes. A a say no you re buying met not that old Chap not the Philip Boxe a Quot that a who to is and he a the Well his name is Quot Well i should say so a affirmed the youth with a Long breath. Quot by love i might have known from the Way he took the ribbons. Ifs some satisfaction to feel yourself in his and the Boyish speaker elated at having come in such close Contact with so noted an official darted through the office and out into the noisy Street. Was this untimely death indeed an Accident As or. Boxe had suggested a or what it was to determine this to his own satisfaction that the detective had remained in no. 76. Chapter ii. In no 70. Many officials would have speedily closed the door of the death chamber excluding the eyes of morbid curiosity and Havo conducted their investigation with an air of grave and mysterious secrecy. Not so however or. Boxe. Though he debarred from the immediate room All save or. Barnes whose right of Entrance to was Fain to recognize be permitted those who had gathered about Tho open door to remain there undisturbed and though apparently unconscious of their presence his Alert ears lost nothing that foil from their lips. It would not be the first time that or. Boxe had caught up the thread of a mystery if mystery there was from the thoughtless remark of a casual observer. Room no. 76 was upon the second floor Aud its two windows opened through a Side Elevation of the massive building and upon a thoroughfare traversed hourly by Many people. The single bed occupied a Corner of the room being close to the Hall partition and near the door. The lifeless form thereon was that of a Young woman not Over 19 or 20, and though of features somewhat distorted by her violent death her cold senseless countenance gave evidence of having been of More than Ordinary Beauty. Of medium sized figure she was clothed Only in a nightdress and was lying upon her Back partially off and on the lied her feet touching the floor and one White extended wind fiercely clutching the snowy cover lid the other clasped about her Throat As if in a single moment of consciousness when suddenly awakened to a Brief realization of her horrible situation she had made a vain Effort to struggle upward from the bed and 6hut off from its escape the death Laden Gas above her. Quot it looks like a Case of suicide a suggested or. Barnes in an awed whisper to. The detective who stood motionless in the Middle of Tho room his grave eyes Bent upon the body As if to fathom the stilled heart within. An expression of Peculiar gentleness hovered about his thin lips. It was a sad and painful picture to his eyes even used As they were to viewing pain and sadness. A in some respects yes a he assented dropping the watch Charm with which he had been toying and stooping at the same time to pick from the carpet something on which he had trodden. Whatever it was he did not then examine it but held it carelessly in ins hand. Quot in some respects a reiterated or. Barnes inquiringly. Quot if such had been her intention she must have changed her explained the detective moderately. Quot she seems to have made an Effort to Rise perhaps to reach the window perhaps to summon Quot might not her suffering unconsciously have led to that a a possibly a acknowledged or. Boxe. Quot you see the transom is securely bolted at both ends. That would Load one to infer that she had made careful Quot True Quot acquiesced Tho detective who seemed very willing to glean others ideas without dispersing any of his own. A and the key is inside the door and the Bolt was shot. All this must have been accomplished from Quot evidently a bowed or. Boxe like one convinced by the others acumen. Quot there was somebody in Here with her a suddenly spoke up a gentleman standing in in the Hall. Quot How do you know a demanded or. Barnes turning to him. Quot i heard talking As i went to my room at about 9 of clock. It is the one adjoining Quot How Long did it continue a Quot i Don t know. I Beard nothing after i entered my a did you hear a Many a voice a mildly inquired or. Boxe who though he had lost not a word had walked to the window to lean far out and look Down and then Rose erect to make a Brief examination of the Small object which he still held Iii his hand. Quot i think not a replied the gentleman doubtfully. Quot i did not pay any Quot meagre information exceeds none at All my Friend. We Are much Quot not at All a bowed the gentleman blushing. Quot information a put in or. Buries in a tone of Surprise. Quot information desired implies a suspicion. Or. Boxe. Do you mean to say that you think this to be other than a suicide a a i have thought very Little about it As yet a said the detective dryly. Quot yet one cannot but take the evidence before him for what it is Worth. It is presumable that the trunk yonder belonged to Tho deceased you will observe its size and Quality it is no cheap affair. Note also the discarded clothing it gives evidence of wealth taste and refinement. Or. Barnes your guests Are not generally of the humbler class quite the opposite they Are representatives of the moneyed and aristocratic portion of society. From my Brief observation the person lying there is no exception she evidently was using the word in the popular sense a lady. Quot yes yes a asserted mrs. Granger with something like a sob Quot a lady. Poor dead lady in Quot but that hardly explains a Quot i know what you would say a interposed the detective. Quot but persons of her presumable stamp do not take their own lives without a most potent cause and even then not in such a Way As this. A natural refinement and Reserve an Abhorrence of making themselves a revolting spectacle for strange and curious eyes would constrain them from such publicity. Had this occurred in a cheap hotel in a lower Section of the City had the victim and her effects betrayed the reverse of what is so apparent i should be More ready to countenance the theory of Quot but if not that what Quot demanded or. Barnes dubiously. Quot rather than to suicide i would incline to attribute the lady a death to accidental replied the detective and to gazed soberly at the people about the door As if to note the effect of his admission. Perhaps he looked to detect an expression of Relief on some one of the Many faces if so. He was disappointed for each and every one wore that of mingled doubt and pity. A Accident a said or. Barnes rather disdainfully. "8he does not look like a person to have blown out the Quot no a admitted the detective addin decisively Quot then if neither wilful suicide nor Accident but one explanation remains one theory of Quot and that a a Londos fog. How the dense dark vapor settles Over a big City. London Standard. I suddenly like a great pall about 3 of clock yesterday one of the densest fogs Ever known fell Over London and the suburbs. A walk amid this atmospheric chaos is an undertaking not readily to be forgotten. Ever and anon the piteous voices of unseen men and women would cry aloud Quot where Are we a a for heaven s Sake Tell me the Way to Bloomsbury Southwark Belgravia or Chelsea As the Case might be or. A Jane where Are you a or Quot John what has become of Eliza a while shouts for the omniscient policeman might be heard on All sides. The blindness was aggravated by the smarting pain with which the eyes were afflicted by the horrible mixture filling Mouth and nostrils and by the constant reminders that the pavements had been cunningly prepared by malicious Jack Frost As so Many Man traps for the downfall of the unwary pedestrian. American ships under the British Flag. The attention of the Dominion government has been called to the fact that the owners of a Large number of american sealing vessels Are availing themselves of the privilege of registering their vessels in Canada in the name of Canadian citizens and thus placing them under the Protection of the British Flag by which it is claimed they Are not liable to the same persecution from the United states cruisers in Behring sea As if they continued to sail under the stars and stripes. It is pointed out that in Case of seizure if under the British Flag the British government would contest the Case thus relieving them of the responsibility and Cost of snit while lending to the Case at the same time. The moral and physical support of the British Flag. The Canadian sealing Fleet in Behring sea will be larger this year than during former seasons. The Dominion government has carefully refrained from issuing any instructions to the Canadian sealers for their guidance in Behring sea but tile impression prevails in official circles that the protective service of the american cruisers will not result in any seizures. J. B. Grinnell dead. Sex congressman j. B. Grinnell the founder of the town of Grinnell died at Marshalltown la., on tuesday evening.

Kicking to be photographed. One of the photographs that has the largest Sale just now is a portrait of a girl who is perhaps the highest kicker in the country. Her right leg is parallel with heir body and that foot is a trifle higher than her head. It is said to be an inside fact about the picture that the fair subject had her Heel trussed up in position and some one to hold her from falling Over backward while she was being photographed. She can actually kick As High As Yon please but kicking a hat and kicking to be photographed Are vastly different things. Business failures for Tho week. New York april 3.�?the business failures occurring throughout the country during the last seven Days As reported to r. G. Dunn amp co. And e. Russell amp co. Mercantile Agency by Telegraph number for the United states 211, Aud for Canada 32 or a total of 243 As compared with a total of 256 last week and 286 the week previous to the last. For Tho corresponding week of last rear the figures were 206, representing 189 allures in the United states and 17 in the Dominion of Are your plans what Are you training your boy and girl to do business men Tell the kind of Young men and women they wan College graduates too late and too Wise for mercantile life. Graduation Day comes on apace and the question that so Many hundreds of parents annually find themselves called upon to answer is again in the air. Quot what shall i do with my son a the father inquires. And the Mother asks Quot what shall i do with my daughter a the problem seems More difficult of solution each year. Applicants for positions increase faster than positions and. Notwithstanding Tho new occupations opening up from season to season the numbers of people who must be self supporting increase in much greater ratio. The Supply of labor appears in other words much greater than the demand for it. This complicates the problem of providing for the Small army of youths and Maidens annually set free from school who Are in the majority of cases the children of parents whose ability to provide them with the necessities not to mention the luxuries of life cannot last much beyond school Days. Right Here comes in one of the most important questions in connection with Tho matter. When shall school life end shall it be with the grammar school or with the High school or with College or shall from some one of these three great divisions of school learning the Pupil be transferred to some special school because those questions so closely concern so Many fathers and mothers so Many Young men and Young women so Many boys and girls it seems Worth while to look the matter squarely in the face and see if there to not some Way of joining theory and practice and some More scientific method of settling the matter than letting it Drift Hap Lizard and half Settle and unsettle itself several times Over. Before any working conclusions Are reached. Leaving outside Tho Pale of tile present inquiry the welfare of children who have incomes of their own. Those whose parents Are Able and willing to support them indefinitely and those for whom special careers Are mapped out from their cradles where the children obligingly follow the paths marked out for them and sometimes by great Good Fortune Chance to coincide by inclination and ability with the View s held for them. Leaving All those who come under any one of these conditions outside of the question and whom have we to Deal with the great mass still of Public school children who Are the very heart and lungs of the country. There will graduate in less than three months from grammar schools hundreds of boys and girls thousands if the count extends Oyer the country w Ith no apparent aim in life. Their parents for the most part have found it an Effort often an extreme one to keep these children in school up to the age of 14 or 15 years in some cases 16. At which Ages most children have a grammar school diploma if they Are Ever to Nave one. What shall these children do what shall parents be advised to do is it for the nest interests of the children to extend their school Days which in Many cases Means an a trowel tax upon parents or shall school life be Cut off at this Point school life it is asked not education of course. That never ceases this Side of the grave for either feminine or masculine humanity in Tho Possession of the five Ordinary senses and the sixth common sense or As it has been Intro truly described uncommon sense. Interviews with prominent people whose personal Success in life and varied and wide experience enable them to judge wisely bring to Light some ideas worthy of the consideration of mothers and fathers. By Tho time children Are graduated from tile grammar school if not before the future calling of boy or girl should have been taken into consideration and outlined. That it is designed every child should have a calling is taken for granted be it said Here. If the boy or girl can be Given a profession for ornamental , what is More reasonable for purposes of mental culture there is no question of course As to what his or her future line of action shall be at least up to such time As his or her talents Aud the parental purse secure the coveted sheepskin. But in these Days of much Over crowded professions it is a question indeed whether the average child who must become self supporting at the earliest possible moment should be encouraged to adopt a profession. Liven signs of musical Talent that puts another phase upon the matter but for mediocre doctors lawyers and ministers there is no longer any room surely no Success that makes any Effort to get it Worth while. Of a child show undoubted Genius for any of the arts there again almost any sacrifice seems a Small Price to pay to give such a child such rudimentary teaching As shall put him upon his own feet. So to speak where to can make his Way alone. But these Are exceptional instances. The average grammar school graduates shows no remarkable Genius his parents circumstances financially speaking Are such that he cannot be Given anything for ornament pure and simple and the question of his or her future actions depends upon what is to be the quickest and most lasting Benefit. At the threshold of High school life the question becomes at once shall the boys and girls from Tho average family enter them is it for their immediate or lasting interests to do so who Tho children a prospects upon leaving tile High school be perceptibly brighter for the three or four years course of study there this question underrated in no Way the importance and value of higher education for those who Are Able to get it and make use of it. It does question the advisability of keeping boys and girls in school until they Are 18 or 19 years old when the parents of these children can ill afford to kit step them there when in All human probability these children Are plainly destined to join the work a Day world. If the added years of High school life make them fitter to Cope with the would As they will find it once in its mazes Well and Good. But do they this is the question. The views of Many business men Are against keeping children w to must enter the business world without capital or friends at court in school until they Aro Young men and Young women grown. They need most of them to become at once self supporting but they Havo no business training no experience Are Worth Little to any finn while they Are acquiring both and must in the nature of things begin on the lowest round of the business ladder if at All. Not Only is this objectionable to Young men and Young women who have been Quot done for so Long they have Little notion of doing for themselves but they find themselves unable to make a living from what they can earn what is the trouble the facts Are that All the occupations by false Courtesy called Quot polite a because some suggestion of gentility attaches to them Are crowded about with applicants ail departments of the mercantile world Are Over flowed with people who should know something but do know Little and All of them Are struggling frantically to eke out their poor living. Why poor because at the age when their labor should be remunerative Young people of both sexes in Large numbers find themselves Worth Only Tho Price of an errand boy or a Cash girl. A i Tell you a said one Boston merchant who employs a Large number of both men and women of All Ages a we have no use for these people who come hero old enough and big enough to know some one thing Well who in Point of fact do not know How to do anything. And most of them Are too old to learn. What we want today what we need Are men and women to grow up with the business who know it Root and Branch. In our store we manage fairly Well because we take Young people of both sexes just out of school either the grammar or the High school and train them systematical y step by step but we can to do this with College graduates nor with the pupils from special schools they Are too old too in tractable. Take our bookkeepers. Who Are toe head men ecu who came in hero from the grammar school and worked their Way up. Who know every rope. We have no use for men or women either from those hospitals i Call them a the commercial colleges a who come to us at Tho age of 20, with their theories perfect but knowing nothing of practice. There is the Point. Every business House has a policy of its own. And the people who Are of value to it Are the people who know that policy and Aro people of ideas and ability. The theory that Book learning disciplines the mind. And that w Hile the immediate knowledge picked up in the advanced schools May not come into actual play the Pupil at such schools is a better All round worker Whon he leaves school is a very excellent one. Iii practice however it does t always work. Our children today Are crammed with facts but. Apparently they Swallow them whole and did not digest them for we find precious few who have Learned to think for themselves. They Are lacking in ability to take in More than one thing at a time. Set them to do any one thing that Thoy have Learned to do. Construe a French verb or add up a column of figures and most of them come out pretty Well but when you put them in a place requiring a thinking reasoning person Able to take in All sides of a situation you have Only an automaton warranted it May he to do certain things but nothing else. Quot the whole thing in a nutshell is this just so truly As the course of a boys reduce lion who is going to be an army officer is mapped out with that career in View from an Early Date in his school life just so truly should the education for a business Man or woman Start in Early upon special lines. We want a grammar school education at least for a foundation then what is needed is to go into business to go in at Tho Root of it and grow up with Tho Plant. This does not mean that Hook learning must cease when Tho grammar school diploma is handed Over. The More a Man or woman Snow s the More useful they Are to us. But. While there is no objection to the Engineer knowing tile Anglo Saxon Tongue if he wants to it is important that lie should know an engine and important to us for him to know our engine. Quot there Are night schools and libraries and facilities of All sorts for the Benefit of those who wish to pursue their studies hut whoever is Gong to take a diploma in business needs to add to his list of studies before he Trees to a College Post graduate course. Quot not More business men and women but better business men and women Ore needed. The business world is suffering today for people with ideas based upon actual knowledge and wide experience such As Are developed through Long and intimate association with any work. A a what shall be done with the sons and daughters who come out of school in june Quot there Are openings for every one of them in the business world providing they Are in Earnest. There is no More room anywhere for do nothings. The sooner the training Burins Tho better. From the Start Young people going into business will receive some tangible return for their Industry. Beginning at once to relieve their parents of some of the Strain of their support. Mid building for themselves practical educations that will be invaluable to Quot Bald Tho head of a Large Man Whoso son was sent to College preparatory to joining his father in business Quot it was a mistake of i could go Over the around again i should take him in with me direct from the High school i done to know but before. All that he knows that is of any Benefit to him to could have Learned just As Well out of College As in and my influence Over him would have been More effectual and his value to himself and to the world greater of he had begun at Tho foundation and Learned the business thoroughly As he went along. Parents who Are looking about for openings for their children cannot do better than to place them with reputable business firms with whom there Are plenty of openings for All who Are willing to begin where they belong and take what they earn. Quot a bile there is no room anywhere for incompetency. There Are Good chances everywhere for business experts and expert Ness is Tho Reward of thorough training and business training must begin at an Early Good for typewriters. The gentle fairy who Clicks the keys made necessary for literary work. New York latter in Albany pres. J a Lively discussion is now going on among publishers and writers in this City Over the question As to whether the author of the future will be obliged to own a typewriter. A certain buyer of manuscript has advertised that he will examine nothing but typewritten articles. His dictum has stirred up quite a rumpus. Publishers editors and Syndicate managers approve of this new departure. Tho vast army of writers however Are not at All unanimous in Praise of Tho innovation. To a great Many of them it would make no difference if every purchaser of literary wares in the City should adopt the new Rule. There Are scores of Clever writers who never submit to publishers anything but Type written copy. I know at least three reporters on As Many different newspapers who sit at their machines Aud construct their stories and Type. Write them at the same time. But still there Are a Groat Many Clever writers who would Rind it a financial hardship should they be obliged to conform to a literary Market whose door was shut against Chir Graphy. So Tho matter stands. The maker of the new Rule asserts that he has found no falling off As yet in the matter placed at his disposal. Besides this As lie is obliged to read hundreds of articles a month Tho Strain on bus eyes has been materially lessened. I believe that the politic author who wants his articles read within a reasonable time alter submission will Gamble enough on his ability to stand the Cost pertaining to typewritten copies. That woke her up. How a Bright Young Man aroused his bleeping wife at Midnight. Chicago Tribune it was about Midnight when a certain Brilliant North Side Young Man reached Home. To had a Story which he wanted to Tell his wife and when a Man wants to Tell his wife a Story he wants to Tell it to her right away. This Young Many a wife was asleep sound asleep too. But the Young Man was As Wise As he was Brilliant no one could give him Points on waking a woman up. He Shook her gently but it had no effect. Then to Shook Lier harder and exclaimed a Wake up the House is on fire a a sigh and a half audible Quot huh a was the Only reply. Ile tried again this time exclaiming Quot Wake up Quick there a some one in the House she moved uneasily and mumbled something that he could not understand.

I write this now As a grateful acknowledgement for the almost inestimable service you have done the country i wish to say a word further when you first reached the Best known most popular and most successful of american tragedian was born on his fathers farm in Maryland nov. 13, 1833, and ins histrionic record began in the class room. John s. Clarke and Edwin Booth were schoolmates and these two now illustrious actors instead of mounting the platform on recitation Days and delivering Quot Mary a Little would with wonderful accuracy give the quarrel scene from Quot Julius Oscar or other scenes from Shakespeare. During their school Days or. Booth and or. Clarke Soho Story goes inaugurated an entertainment in which Booth recited from Quot Richard Iii.,�?� and a Julius Between the recitations both Young men blacked up and Sang negro melodies and from this Little incident arose that erroneous Story about or. Booth once singing As an end Man in a minstrel show. When not at school he travelled with his father and made his professional debut in Boston As lord Tressel. In Quot Richard ii Quot sept. To. 1849. Edwin Booth. In 1862 he accompanied his distinguished father to California. During his stay ins experience was varied and the struggles were not always easy. While playing Iago in Nevada he heard of his fathers death and soon after to left for Australia where he played shylock to Laura Keener a Portia. In Honolulu he played Hamlet before the King the King sitting in a chair of state in the wings and in the Hist aet the mock King of Denmark was compelled to borrow the chair from Tho real King to Complete the scone. His return to his native land and tour through Tho West Are Well known to students of dramatic literature As Are equally his struggles with poverty Aud against obstacles in san Francisco and his determination afterwards reconsidered to abandon the stage entirely. Resuming his career As on actor after Many encouragements or. Booth appeared in the Golden City As Ruy Blas. Raphael in the Quot Marble Armand Duval in Mortimer in Quot Tho Iron Chest a Pescara in the Quot apostate a Don Ciesar de Bazan. Tho Duke Aranza in the Quot honeymoon a and sir Giles overreach in Quot a new Way to pay old not however until his return East in 1861. Can or. Booth be said to have become an actor in All earnestness mid with Good prospects of Success. In that year after a number of performances in this country he went to Europe and appeared sept 30, in the British Metropolis As shylock. Returning to the United states he reappeared at the Winter Garde of which he was the Lessee and was seen also at the Walnut Street theatre Philadelphia in which he was jointly interested with his brother in Law John Sleeper Clarke his old playmate and at the Boston theatre in Tho profits of which he had a third interest ids brother. Junius Brutus Booth jr., husband of mrs. Agnes Booth being the manager. These three theatres constituted what was in those Days a popular circuit and a tragedian like or. Booth. Or a comedian like or. Clarke could play one or More engagements of a season thus occupying his whole available tune. Each of the three theatres had a resident Stock company a it was the Quot Start Only who changed. Of the two actors or. Clarke was the More popular in Philadelphia a or. Booth in now York. Prior to this time and on account of the frequent change of Bills which was necessary managers could not except in the Case of spectacular performances be expected to devote much expenditure upon scenery anti costumes. It was at tile performances of or. Booth at the Winter Garden that the first serious attempt was made to revise shakespearean plays with such Scenic and costume embellishments As Are now accepted almost As a matter of course in All first class metropolitan theatres. Splendid revivals of Quot Hamlet a Quot Richelieu a Quot the merchant of a Julius Caesars and Quot Mac Beth made memorable Ais tenure of that popular playhouse. It was not until 1869 that or. Booth opened Booths theatre a playhouse dedicated to the highest interests of the drama erected with the savings of Many years and destined As it afterwards proved to disaster by the grossly incompetent business Way in which it was conducted. Here the Public saw and applauded sumptuous revivals of a Julius Quot Hamlet a a Othello a a a Winters tale a Quot Romeo and Juliet and Quot much ado about nothing. Retiring in 1873 from the venture a ruined and disappointed Man or. Booth during the ensuing to years devoted his time and efforts solely to acting Only those parts in which his commercial Success seemed Best assured. In 1882 he went to England and there played in London in 1883 lie made a professional tour of Germany in 1884 he returned to the United states where after acting for four years As an Independent to entered into the professional partnership with Lawrence Barrett which has been so fruitful of profitable results to them both. Booth and Barrett have Togo her toured the country and the Success which they have achieved has been almost unexampled in theatrical annals. Edwin Booth is a quiet and reserved Man retiring Aud a ostentatious. His benefactions Are known to but few but when discovered Are seen to be lavish in their princ Liness. Thus his gift of a House Paia tally furnished with Rich Library fittings and accoutrements to the players club is recalled As one evidence of his liberality and but one an Earnest secretive and studious Man an actor of great intelligence a Superb elocution St Anil a profound scholar. Or. Booth has brought new laurels to the historic stage name of Booth. Little known to his associates. By reason of his reserved manner. Or. Booth is Well known to the Public Aud he is acknowledged everywhere to be the representative tragedian of american the peer of the great lights of the stage in the United states. Of All which has been written upon the subject of Edwin Booths performances were to be published it would make a Library of itself and would include a mass of opinions some erudite some shallow some sincere and some cautious but together showing As much variance of opinion As probably any collection or printed words in the English language. For Edwin Booth is riot alone in the Public mind a great actor but he is also a singular one in Many respects. Performing always and without change or Novelty the same old parts he is not an actor of the old stage. Without perceptible change in his impersonations of such characters As Iago Hamlet or Richelieu during a Quarter of a Century his methods seem to have an a a withering freshness perennial and pleasant which prevents them from Ever getting old. Thus it is that after an actor of Strong individuality like Fechter Irving. Davenport Barry Sullivan Matthews Mayo Jefferson or Bouc Reault has been seen frequently in a character with which the Public grows familiar his mannerisms and peculiarities become Well known Thoy grow More Manifest each year his ability to divest himself of the Soems to grow gradually less until finally imitators appear and mimics get a fair Field. But it is not so with Edwin Booth. Though his Hamlet in essentially the same performance As it was in 1866, though years freighted with events triumphs and disappointments have passed Over the head of the actor and changes which have occurred in that time of Public taste and stage methods and mounting Are Little Short of revolutionary and kaleidoscopic. No mimic. However audacious has Ever had the effrontery to successfully imitate Edwin Booth. It would be a proceeding As All experience shows doomed from the beginning to failure for such is the Art of this distinguished actor that pre eminent in this respect the Only imitation which it would be possible to give of him would be no imitation at All but the reproduction in a More or loss creditable was. Of some of Tho features of whatever Rolo might be chosen for the Experiment. Edwin Booth is. Therefore an actor neither to be imitated nor excelled and the reason of the latter distinction most certainly is that during these the Mellow years of his artistic life he makes no claim to versatility. Seeks to perform no exciting and diverting round of parts and limits himself scrupulously to those characters in which his ability is unchallenged and upon the memory of which his reputation securely rests. Little As or. Booths impersonations have changed during the past generation of theatregoers. His personal appearance Bas changed just As Little. The same scholarly face thoughtful eyes Long and thick hair preoccupied gait and modesty of bearing which characterized him years ago. Aro to be seen today. Time has made but Little change in him. But his Fame has kept growing until today he is recognized As Tho greatest of american tragedian. Has Long desired rest. Booth was persuaded by Barrett to continue on the stage. Edwin Booths melancholy has in it none of the Clements of misanthropy and disappointment said truth recently. He is a Man of sensitive perceptions and be started out in life with ideals of an exalted nature. The Promise Hoe been fulfilled in a measure. And it would Havo received much More ample proof had the tragedian s life not been marred by sorrows against which to found it almost impossible to struggle. It is no secret that for years or. Booth has wished for the time to come Whon he could leave the stage. This inclination was counteracted by Tho vigorous and industrious nature of the late Lawrence Barrett. It is believed that or. Barrettes death presages or Booths Early retirement from the stage. Would a human Ostrich be. Joseph Gunn fills up on old Iron Tenpenny nails machine screws and carpet tacks a he is booked for a that Hartford. Conn. April 6.�?joseph Gunn 18 years old is lying at the Point of death in the Hartford Hospital As the result of his rapacious appetite for Metal tilings screws and nails. Joseph has been serving out a sentence of one year in the county jail for burglary. About a month ago he was in Groat agony especially Iii the Region of his stomach and doctors were sent for. Thoy wore unable to find out what was the matter or afford any Relief. Joseph grew worse and finally was unable to lie Down being obliged to remain in a standing position All the time. He asked one Day last week to see father Leary of St. Patrick s Church. Aud to him Young Gunn related that about two years ago be went to new York on a visit and while there to dropped into a dime museum of the bowery. The curiosity which most attracted Bis attention was the Quot human the sight of a person swallowing nails bits of old Iron etc., Lilied him with astonishment he visited the museum often during his stay and on his return Home he resolved to be a human Ostrich Loo. He was at that time employed in the Hartford machine screw company and began his experiments with Small bits of Iron filings. Gathering a number of boys in the shop about him lie told of the wonderful feats performed by the bowery Freak Aud then proceeded to Swallow Iron filings. No evil effects were Felt from the first Experiment and Gunn often repeated the feat to the edification of the boys. Gunn broke into a store in this City a few months ago and was sentenced to a year in jail. He got hold of some carpet tacks in prison and swallowed them. Pretty soon the tacks gave out and Gunn fed on nails. The doctors say to cannot live Many Days. The first Public Bank. To Lovely Venito must be Given the credit of its establishment. Detroit free i of is to Venice the Quot Queen of the Adriatic a belongs Tho Honor of having established the first Public Bank of which any record can to found such an institution being unknown to the ancients. In 1711 the Republic of Venice was very hard pressed for funds to carry on the wars in which it was continually engaged in order to uphold its supremacy. As a consequence a tax was levied on its moneyed Mon who Wero promised a perpetual annuity of 4 per cent on the loan thus contributed the borrowers never dreaming of the possibility of returning the principal. Tho lenders immediately instituted a Bureau for carrying out the proposed plan of receiving and paying out the interest and in a comparatively Short time it was erected into Tho Bank of Venice. The exact Date of its founding is not known with Auy degree of certainty interest on tips loan was promptly paid Arni the creditors of the Republic wore subsequently Pato in full the sums they had and. Vance. Consequently so popular did it become. That it was found absolutely necessary to transform the private Bank into one of Deposit that All classes might take advantage of the accommodation thus afforded. In 1723 Tho interest paid by the government alone amounted to upward of #1,000,-ooo a year and the shares and credits of the Bank were so Well supported that at All times is Bills Wero quoted and held at a Premium above the current Money of the Republic. After Many years of Prosperity the Bank was Given its death blow by the French invasion of 1797. Die Freedom of the City and Tho Independence of Tho Republic vanished like a dream before the invaders and As a natural consequence the Bank having thus lost its credit and support also disappeared m Tho general wreck. Some famous necklaces. Pall mall Gazette perhaps the Best known Pearl necklace in London is that of the countess Tolstoi wife of that sturdy Radical or. Philip Stanhope m. P. The stones Are not Only Large and perfect in shape but nearly Black in color a peculiarity which though some will think it does not add to Beauty is. By reason of its rarity exceptionally valuable. The Baroness Henry de Worms wife of the under Secretary for the colonies also has a noted necklace this one of diamonds. There will presently be in the Field a new competitor says the London correspondent of Tho Liverpool pos the contest being Tho More interesting since the new Comer is a connection by marriage of the Baroness de Worms. Tim necklace is not new though it has not been seen in London drawing rooms for some years. It was the property of the late countess of Orkney and was a present to her from Hor first husband. Baron de Samuel a peer of Portugal the necklace is in three rows Aud contains in All 190 pearls Many of Large size. The countess left Tho necklace to her son or. Arthur de Vahl and mrs. De Vahl will in the coming season to the envied w eager of Hie priceless dear for a Harrison dinner. Mrs. President Harrison has Given another luncheon of 21 covers repeated in the regulation form. This last one was called a Pink luncheon but As there w Ere no Young people present a Daffodil or a Hollyhock one would Havo been More in keeping with tie dignity of the event. Pink tulips and Begonia plants with their Pink blossoms formed Tho Horal decorations. Town tomes bears that the Frosh mushrooms served on Toast Cost to the asparagus $12, and the strawberries 15 the delicacies for Otto not being furnished Gratis by the doties. A relations of Italy and the United resident in this country have limited Complex National policy not open to their criticism. To the editor of the Globe the duties Are reciprocal Between Italy and the United states the one towards the other to recognize the Independent right of sovereignty As belonging to each. Consequently the absolute right of autonomy free from foreign intervention exists in the different branches of the government the legislative. Executive and judicial. Italians in this country under the treaty of 1871, enjoy no greater rights privileges and immunities than Are guaranteed under the favored nation clause common to our treaties with other countries. An alien travelling in this country May for molestation caused him address himself to his minister or Consul or await his return to hts country and there present his grievance to the foreign office for consideration by the government of this country. An alien resident entering into the everyday life of a Community Between Man and Man owes a local allegiance to the authorities and members of the state in which he resides. Out of this allegiance grow a duty recognized in the International practice to pursue any grievances inflicted on him or his property by private individuals. Ample Opportunity is Given to All who suffer wrong to seek reparation through the channels of Justice. This reparation must Besought through the tribunals in the state in which the wrong is done and the Federal Union cannot interfere in regard to tire administration or execution of the municipal Law of a state of the Union. The alien party wronged must apply for a redress of the wrong done precisely the same a would any member of the state. Then and Only then when the application for redress is denied to the Alten applicant by the state authorities constituted for that purpose eau Tho country to which the alien belongs make demands for Justice through its diplomatic representatives. Our Complex National policy is not open to the criticisms of a foreign government through its accredited ministers and consuls. They have Only to look to it that the proceedings had Are in conformity with due course of taw As recognized and established for the particular state in which the application is made. The outcome of the proceedings is hot open to criticism by accredited agents to this country. Such criticisms should be promptly resented. Tho utmost that Tho ministers or consuls can do is As a matter of Amity to request permission to suggest a change of venue and Only then when the Laws of the state and in this Case the state of Louisiana admit of such motions in its Ordinary practise. In no Case Etui the trial be moved to another state. In regard to the affair in new Orleans if the parties killed were italians then the rights of Italy would seem to be defined if the parties killed have become naturalized. Then the italian feature and the italians disappear from the consideration of Tho question. _. On Tho matter of citizenship Italy recognizes two categories of italian foreign naturalized subjects first the children of parents naturalized abroad who by the act of their parents have themselves become aliens second children of italian parents who have themselves become naturalized in a foreign country whose parents have not changed their nationality but Havo remained subjects of Italy. With Italy we have no naturalization treaty. In our practice with Italy it has been maintained by the Royal government that naturalization abroad is no exemption from military service. This was held in tire Case of Largomarsino. Who As an american citizen upon return to Italy was impressed into the service in performance of an unfulfilled military obligation before his departure from Italy. Questions with ital you citizenship have been very few. Another leading Case was that of father Lanciotti vice president of St. Mary a College in Kentucky. He emigrated from Italy in Good Faith in the belief that the military obligations required of him were incompatible with his ambitions to become a priest. His father was ill and dying in Italy. He desired to make a temporary visit to him. The late senator Beck and gov. Proctor Knott of Kentucky asked the Good offices of the president to obtain from Tho italian authorities the permit to visit his father to which answer was made by the italian government that he should present himself before the military tribunals to show cause Why he should not be punished for evasion of his military duty. Italy seems ready to recognize its subject naturalized abroad and whether its former subjects May be Good or bad the authorities do not wish for their return and enforce without exception the military Rule of a practical and strict performance of the military obligation which Thev hold to be incumbent on All italians which cannot to thrown off by naturalization abroad. Ii Italy wished for their return Thev Woald he More relax in the military Law. The punishment certain and sure to be visited upon them naturally keeps their former subjects away from Italy which May be precisely what Italy wants. As concerns tire matter of damages this question was settled in the chinese claims growing out of the troubles in Wyoming. The National government maintained thai it was under no liability to indemnify individuals. Of whatever race or country for lasses growing out of violations of our pub lie Laws where the damages were done by private individuals Aud not by agents of the National government. The Money paid a indemnification in those cases was for loss of property not for loss of life and with the distinct understanding that it was a gratuity and in no sense to be construed to establish a precedent for future cases which might arise. It is difficult to see where Italy has a cause for War. It has Only to observe calmness of Demeanour and Hearken to the verdict from the tried and True men sitting As jurors in the state courts of Louisiana. Prentiss Webster. Sleeps for a month at a time. Strange Case of a Columbus ind., boy says he was in heaven. Columbus iud., special in Chicago Tribune four months ago Jesse the 13-year-old son of Maud and Samuel Stritt fell into a deep sleep lasting 30 Days. When he awoke he told his parents that he had been in heaven. The boy minutely described a trip the father had taken to Illinois and said that Trout heaven he had looked Down upon he said that he had come Back to remain until he was 30 years old. Tuesday of this week the boy who is Well liked was invited to a neighbors to Dine.
