A little bo3 named Roj' Manholt
from Red Oak, was put off of No. 7
lere yesterday, Policeman Fitz-
patrick took him in charge, gave
him his supper and succeeded in
finding out where he came from.
The boy said he got on the train at
Red Oak and before he could get off
the train started. The boy is only
six years old and says his father
works for the railroad company.
He was sent to Red Oak last night

Count Herbert Itismarck and the Italian.
I met at a recent entertainment a gen
tleman who had just arrived from Italy,
and who had gone much 'into Italian
society during a prolonged stay in Rome,
He told me that Count Herbert von Bis
marck, when he lately visited that city,
contrived to make himself very unpopu
lar by his arrogant and aggressive man
ners. On one occasion he pushed so
rudely against an Italian officer of high
rank that the personage thus assailed
gave vent to his indignation in very for
cible terms. Without a word of apoi-
ogy the insolent Prussian retorted an
"I am Count Herbert von Bismarck!"
"That, sir, is an explanation of your
conduct, but it is no excuse, was the
response. Paris Cor. Philadelphia Tele-
The Soda Water Season Open.
Soda water fountains are blossoming
out all over the east, side for the sum
mer season. There seems to be more
soda water drank there than anywhere
else in Ihe city. Prices are one, two
and three cents a glass. The highest
price is for a new flavor which seems to
be fashionable on the east side, though
it has not yet apparently become known
elsewhere. It is spelled in different
ways, but the usual spelling seems to be
Aramatariene rose. This is the cost
liest flavor that there is. Another popu
lar flavor, which sells for only two
cents, is rosberry, according to the soda
water spelling. New York Sun.
A Seventy-Five Foot Dive.
At Arctic Springs Floyd Williams, a
twelve-year-old boy, climbed a tower
seventy-five feet high and, reaching the
last turret, dived off into the river.
The descent was made in safety, and
the boy after coming to the surface
swam around for several minutes. It is
regarded as a marvellous act. The tower
was built expressly for Professor Leuv
enmark, the famous diver, who gave an
exhibition on Sunday by diving from
the top, and who was said to be con
sidered the only man' in the United
States able to dive safely from such a
distance. Cor) Indianapolis Journal.

Mr. Carlos Slafter, who for forty years

to leave the school. The Dedham High
school was founded in 1851 and in 1852
Mr. Slafter became its principal. From
early manhood Mr. Slafter has been an
educational instructor. He was born ki
