Denver news. \ Paoyi Montial. It at Sunset in a Little town of Queensland the proprietor of the Best hotel the Pla it e could Lse ast of was surprised not to say flattered to see it gentleman Gold headed a to his Cane and evidently Rich and influential to judge front his servant and Luggage alight from tin coach with ail the of one who was going to stay at least a week in the place. He was distinctly american with a twinkling Gray Eye a Long aquiline nose a clean shaven Upit or lip and a Small Goatee which lie smoothed meditatively As he stood like a Long legged colossus of Ithodas. In Trou Sering of a very Broad Check pattern surveying the Pride of the proprietor s heart namely the hotel. I go com its not unlike my Siulc. A he said presently As the proprietor came Down to meet him. A you must have Fine stables was the reply offered gently in the Hope of turning away not the great Matt himself but Only his Wrath a we have sir our a tables Are considerable. A my i say it in Praise of your shanty that it reminds me of my stables in Connecticut. 1 sup be you can give us a Loose Lse a for a week maybe the landlord Reeo guided the free and easy american with plenty of Money the kind of Man who was never slow to give offence because he was master of the situation by reason of the almighty Dollar lie recognized the a colonel Quot and the a a Genera a a the Man w to travels As he lists the wide w orld Over and gets ready respect and deference from every tidy. Quot certainly a he replied a for a week or As much longer a you a Well 1 guess 1 Only want to stay a week. You see i arranged to wait Here for Viscount Burlton who is going to join me next thursday and then we re going along1 to the new diggings just to reckon things up a bit to see whether the place is Worth working on a Large scale As we do it in America. But i say. It a this place is real Dull after Brisbane Isnit there any theatre or place of amusement 1 reckon 1 shall lie of dullness right the landlord already under the distinguished patronage of Viscount Thurlton. Liee ame oily almost Greasy n i manner lie explained that there a As no troupe at the theatre at pres a tit. And that the Only excitement was a he trial Ltd of a Man who was supposed o be Ftp corned in a daring coach robbery committed some Little time before in the neighbourhood. A nah that would lie interesting the stranger. A i should like to Sec stuck up the conch did he Quot a Well they say he did. But lie Elf swears that he is innocent hat he was in Brisbane at the the Eracli was stopped. If you would a re to Bear the trial sir i can get toil n seat �?�1 guess ill fake you up a returned the stranger and it was egret a that the proprietor should i Eort the great Man to the courthouse on the Morrow tel by his in fluence secure him a Good eat just to liable him to while away the Fine until Viscount the Triton came i Long. It so happened however that when they arrived the i sly of the court was full so that tin distinguished looking Vuie Rivait was accommodated with a a eat on the Bench where lie not Only Iii a go Hal View of the proceedings till was seen and known by every one i the Friend of Viscount thu lit on. And i wealthy american who was going to by up the new digging township to a work it As an Ordinary Man might work a potato Patch. The prisoner was standing in the lock with i Eye East Down listening j i despair to the conclusive evidence i against him. Presently be raised his yes at some direct question from the fudge Ami was about to s a cite when this eyes fell to set the stronger sitting in the Bench lie paused and Stag a gered. Then gripped at the air and fell senseless in the Dis k. When at last he was brought round he stood up and. Pointing at the Strung a. Gasped for breath and tried to speak. A what is it. My Man Quot said the fudge. Quot steady yourself. I ask again j have you anything to say in your own defence a ooh your Honor Quot said the prisoner at last. �?o1 am saved saved at the last j moment. I have already Saiu that 1 j was in Brisbane at the time of the Rob j Bery and there is the Man who can prove All eyes followed the direction of his linger and rested upon the stranger. Who started looked confused then in Noy Atice and exp tala ton a your Honor i be never to my knowledge set eyes on the prisoner before and i done to see How 1 can fax up his innocence. Besides i guess 1 did t come Here to in questioned by every Sou of a gun that holds up a mail coach i beg your Pardon your Honor tint you la allow the annoyance is Consi Dera 1 de his Honor admitted it was but Straightway appealed to the stranger s i it est feelings on behalf of the prisoner until he Mas somewhat mollified and remarked a Waal if he thinks it s straight wire he can Start in. And i la answer his question. I done to Nind taking him up on tiie stronger was then sworn and he stood in the witness Box the a prisoner addressed hint. he said Quot do you remember on the third of july a Man running after your hat in the Street in Brisbane and bringing it Back to you on the pavement Quot Quot i can t say that a do Quot replied the stranger after a Little thought Quot no. I can t fetch Quot do you not re me tidier his saying that he was out of a Ltd re and his three children were starving and then can you not recall giving him a Sovereign and saying. A Here a a a Hilling for you to the stranger was silent a if he wished to re Minitier the occurrence but presently he Shook his head slowly and said Quot no. Its no a see you must be mistaking me for some one a stay a Erie the prisoner again in a voice of terrible tension for it was his last Chance a do you remember before giving the Sovereign that the Man told you he had Feu Glit in the crimean War and could show wounds that he had helped his country but his country would t help him yes. You must re Melter his showing you the Sears one at the Back of the head another on his right breast Quot a it the stranger interrupted him with a sudden Exel a mat ion. Quot i do. I do tin sear on your breast is a Long one a Sabre Cut. Your Honor i re Merlier meeting this Man 1 must apologize his life was in my hands and i nearly i let hint fall through. He is the Man i saw in Brisbane Quot there was a profound sensation in court As the prisoner steadied himself and wiped the cold moisture from his i brow. A fan you remember the Date on which Liis happened a asked the prosecuting counsel. A nah. In a afraid 1 can to the stranger returned Quot but i know this it was f three Days after the Carlisle Castle a j rhed at Sydney if it s possible to find out what Date that was the newspapers of the first week in july were then consulted and it was found that the Carlisle Castle arrived at Sydney on Jurn a to. I that three Days afterwards brought it to the exact Date required. Again there was Anida use in Cour t As the prisoner was formally acquitted. Finally turning toward the stranger i the judge remarked Quot in the interests of Justice 1 thank you sir your presence Here to Day is one of those remark Abb dispensations of Providence which Are Seldom met that night the acquitted prisoner the american gentleman and i serv j out Rode through the Bush in a Jovial Frame of mind. For masons lest known to themselves they wished to put As great a distance As possible Between the township and themselves Lief Ore morning and As they went they planned How they should hold up the mail a second time at no very Distant Date. But it was the last Tinte the trick was played successfully in that neighbourhood for the distinguished american decamped without paying his hotel Bill moreover. Viscount Burlton never arrived and a rat was subsequently smelt and seen floating in the air of the neighbourhood of the Mut House a rat which had grown considerably i beyond the a Bud Quot stage. Presumption of survivor ship constitutes a very knotty Point which comes up for solution from time to time in Law cases. If two or More relative heirs to each other perish in one com t Iun Accident a. A. Shipwreck fire or a falling building and no evidence is forthcoming As to which was the last to die the question of survivor ship important to the executors of each has to be decided on purely presumptive grounds and the arguments brought Forward when such cases Otue into court Are often Iti tin highest degree ingenious and interesting. A few examples culled from the records of the last three centuries Are Well Worth consideration. In Lars a French indy and her Little four year old daughter were drowned in the River Loire. Some important property was involved and on Appeal the parliament of Paris decided that the daughter Sivu Alicd first lie aug by fat the weaker of the two parties. On the Oiler hand a Case also in France was decided in a contrary Way Only a few years later. A Mother and two children of tender years were murdered in the dead of night. The of Dowel claimed his wife a pro it erty on the ground that the children had survived their Mother and the property was adjudged to him. Tiie argument admitted being that the murderer would first dispatch the victim he Fea ted most. A singular Case w As recorded it Itier. A father and son. Fighting in the French army which in Alliance with that of Cromwell Defeated the spaniards at the Battle of the dunes fell during the engagement which com Luencen at noon. A daughter of the father on tin tame Day at ii you. Be came a nun. Thereby rendering herself dead in Law. And the court had to Settle which of the three survived. It decide a �1 that the daughter died tin Law first free aude her vow. Lieut to voluntary. Was consummated instantaneously whereas her fathers and her brother s wounds were not necessarily immediately fatal 2 that the father not having the physical a towers of resistance possessed by the son. Tiled lie fore him do that the son therefore survived. A Case somewhat similar to the last came on in the English court of chancery fifteen years later. Gen. Stanwix. His second wife and his Only daughter by his first wife were drowned in a Shipwreck in the Irish Channel. A Nephew of die general As his heir claimed his property. An Uncle ton the Mother s Side As heir to the daughter did likewise find a representative of the second wife a go claimed. On behalf of the general heir it was argued that the ship having foundered in a storm the general was probably on deck and his wife and daughter i Wing probably below would be drown a first. Counsel for the daughters heir urged that the it neral w As old. And consequently feeble while the Dought r was of particularly Strong Constitution and nerve and a it Unsei for the wife s heir brought argument As to the probability of the wife Havig the n tote last to pm a re. Not a soul in saved and to Tere was therefore no Sheet of evidence As to the incidents of the disaster and the Case was so that the court in despair of arriving at a a wet Lusion advised a Compromise Between the parties w hich was eventually adopted. Where drowning has been the cause of de Atli the fact that one of the Paro ties Anu not the other it Otilde swim is sometimes adduced and the height of ingenuity was. A Ler Simps. Reached by the executors of a lady drowned with her husband when they Conti need that in his efforts tip save his wife the Man doubtless exhaust d hint self and so Sank first. Cases such As these continue to arise not infrequently and. Although they Are usually settled without going into court.

In screening the Coal in the Yards additional Coal of the Chestnut size is obtained. Chestnut is the size the poor people w to Are supplied by the county use.

The United states Steamer Michigan indians Seldom Wear head covering is said to be the oldest Iron Steamboat toes this account for the fact that float. Bald indians Are extremely rare on the morning after Admiral Dew by announced his impending marriage the Washington correspondent of the new York Sun wrote now that Admiral Dewey has in his characteristically matter of fact Way his engagement to mrs. Mildred b. Hazen tin Public is beginning to wonder just a Little although the inevitable few Are present who proudly say Quot i told you and strangely enough so they did for More than one newspaper published at the time of Dewey a arrival Home the gossip floating about among the knowing ones in vanity fair. The basis of this gossip was the fact which leaked out through a government officer that the Gallant Admiral had sent a Brief Cable message on his own account from each of the posts where the Olympia touched on her historic and deliberate voyage from the far East to a certain lady residing at the Home of mrs. Washington Mclean on Connecticut Avenue and seventeenth Street which was the admirals Headquarters while lit was being officially welcomed to the capital. Mrs. Mclean and her daughter mrs. Hazen. To whom the Cable messages were addressed. Living meanwhile at the country place of mrs it Mclean in the sub Urlis. Nobody a he cared to Liei Ieve the reports however preferring to think that they were due solely to the Friendship 1k-tween Admiral Dewey and the mcleans. So tin Admiral s announcement made through Secretary in neg at the theatre has caused Surprise. A local paper dares to place the age of the naval heroes Fiancee at 4ff. Her first husband. General Hazen who Hail been a prominent officer in the civil Wra was not by any Means a Young Man when he died As of course he could not have been and that was in ls. Mrs. Hazen was not thought to in so very much younger than her husband but then it is never Gallant to speculate Alst a woman s age. Suffice it to say that the Fiancee of the Admiral is a Young looking Bright eyed Rosy cheeked Little woman who has Long been a favorite in Washington society. She is Short and Stout a Demi Mnmette. Whose hair is sprinkled with Gray and with agreeable Man i Tetra and marked vivacity if not brilliancy. She is the daughter of the late Washington Mclean founder of the Cincinnati enquirer and Lias lived in a this City with her Mother since the death of her husband the Washington mcleans having moved to Washington about fifteen years ago. Where the head of the House invested largely in real estate and local securities which investments have since been assumed by Washington Mclean s my. A few years ago the elder mrs. Mclean removed from Lafayette Square to the House on Connecticut Avenue one of tin nuts Rott pieces of pricier to purchased by them Ltd Eail estate Ami which was Cre it Tea by a Boss Quot Shepherd for his residence in the �?o1hm�ui Days of old Washington when Shepherd was the mayor common Council Ami Loard of Public work combined. Mrs. Hazen bears a striking resemblance to her sister the wife of Captain Nicoll Ludlow of the Navy to whom she was married in Isiria. Her first husband having been Frederick Brigher. Tin Sisters have been quite prominent in Washington society and perhaps because of their wealth which they inherited from their father they have been reported As to eing engaged to almost every eligible Bachelor who has appeared on the carpet including those perennial beaux. General Joe Wheeler Ami sex Secretary Herl it. Mrs. Hazen lived while her husband was at the head of the signal corps of the Navy in their own Bouse at Ltd to and k streets which was recently the Home of Secretary of War Alger. The social and family connections of tiie mcleans Are so has to make them an influence in Washington society and in official and political life As Well. John it. Mclean Al hit fifteen year Sago married the daughter of general Edward f. Beale a Gallant army officer Ami Republican politician who was prominent in the polities of California. Where he owned a Large Stock ranch. The widow of general Beale j lives in tie great Square Brick House at the Corner of Lafayette Square and ii Street in the same Block where the Washington mcleans formerly lived. The Beale residence is known As the Decatur House having Lieen built by Admiral Decatur. General Grant used j to stay with the Beales when in Washington before and after his election to the presidency. Noon after their marriage or. And mrs. John Mclean moved to the Fernando Wood House a once the residence of Hamilton fish and Roswell 1. Flower and to which they have made extensive improvements. Including a Large Art gallery and Ball room. Mrs. Mclean is prominent in All charitable and social movements. The brother of mrs. Mclean. Truxtun beak. Minister to Persia under Harrison married miss Hattie Blaine. She has since been divorced from him and lives in re during the Winter with her Mother mrs James g. Blaine. Neither mrs. Hazen nor or. Ludlow has Lieen noted either for a ice Sotil Imit Triy or intellectual brilliancy but perhaps Liee Ause of their Una sumling manner strength of character and general attractiveness have been quite popular. Neither has been a society woman in the Ordinary sense of that term but their Homes have been the rendezvous for what is perhaps a Strong element of Washington society. Mrs. Diazen is something of u student. And. Is. Moreover a Theo Sorbi to. Sind is not belong to the local society. But has contributed articles to the the is in Lac publications. Admira Dewey was quite devoted to mrs. Hazen while he lived in Washington in fore going to Manila Ami she was one of the first to Cable congratulations Oil the destruction of the Spanish Fleet. Mrs. Ila end a son was fatally injured while Fox Hunting on i Ong Inland about a year a it it. And she has since lived in retirement her sister also let Eizig in humming. They were conspicuous figures in their widows weeds As they drove about tin Street of the West end Ami their Reseau blah the was so Strong that the general Public was not Able to it distinguish Lee tween them and a referred to them frequently As the a Mclean when Admiral Dewey and mrs. Hazen Are married they will of course occupy the modest but handsome and Well located Home presented by the contributions of the people and which it now develops mrs. Diazen. And not when growing the Beard. Awful spectacle be human face presents a i that period. Whether he intended to do a it at the Start or fell into it by a via Lent will never be known. All mrs. Car Rutins can testify to is that site first observed that her husband hat not shaved of a or three Days and thought he had neglect ice tel that toilet necessity through lick of time. When she delicately hinted is much to her Liege lord he grunted passed his hand Over the red stubble i on his face and said a that was All although mrs. Camu hers a lid not coincide in that opinion she held her Petu to. As a Good Ami Dutiful wife who wants to live a peaceful Lif it and trusted to Providence that Carrut mrs would see the error of ids ways and visit the Barber before he Cante Home from business that evening. But to did to and the Crimson Jungle on his face looked worse than Ever that night. Then tilings came to an. Issue when after dinner she looked him squarely in the Eye and said a a Watnes Carrot hers what �1�� you mean by going around with a face Lik it a burglar you re a sight do you intend to get shaved or Don t Yon Quot Quot no. 1 done to Quot said or. Carruthers cheerfully. A a what Quot shrieked ids wife in alarm. A Fin raising a Beard asserted tin head of file House and mrs. Carruthers tossed her head snorted that head be a Fine looking specimen with a red Beard and retired from the Field. At the end of the first week Carruth ers look like a returned Biondi Kerr a member of tin Peary Relief expedition.
