One of the silliest measures which
ever passed the national senate was
passed yesterday. It was an appro
priation of $45,000 for an Indian con
gress, where all the Indians could as

could express their opinions of Uncle
Sam. What benefit the congress
would be to the Indians or to the gov

The Bee prints a silly and insiped
article of nearly two columns today to
prove that its editor was the first one
to mention the Trans-mississippi ex
position. This selfish ego business
only stirs up strife and ill feeling and
ia not of the slightest interest to the
general public, other than to beget a
feeling of disgust. If the exposition
proves a success, the man or men who
contribute most toward making it a
success will be deserving of public
acknowledgement. As to who sug
gested the exposition, whether Col.
Rosewater or Tom Murray's valet, is
not of the slightest consequence.
The outlook for a great strike in
the New EDgland cotton mills is cer
tainly threatening. The conditions
are singularly unfortunate and if a
strike is declared it cannot help bnt
injure the whole country. The cotton
mills of the south employ cheap col
ored labor and with cheap fuel and
right at the cotton fields they have
cut the margin of profit out entirely
for the-great New England factories.
The result is that the New England
manufacturers must either reduce
their wage schedule or close their
mills. The factory people refuse to
accept a lower wage and consequently
the conditions could not be worse.

money to circulate where it was needed

vast ability to carry them as he did.
When a man is in trouble, the old wol

human bosom, and everybody wants
to throw a brick at him. If Grable is

a tall column of smoke, covered with

day it broke off and fell with a dull
sickening thud. We attempted to
drive down town in the morning, but
our horses had never learned to skate
and when they had slid around a block
on their tails we unhitched them and
placed them in cold storage for future

there were no birds to throw it at.

The Itrave Soldier Died aa Be Bad Always
Hoped He Would.
Moore was dying. Baird was severely
wounded. The early winter night was
creeping over the field of battle, and
Hope, gallant soldier though he was,
judged it prudent to stay his band.
Soult had been roughly driven back.
The transports were crowding into the
harbor. It was enough to have ended a
long retreat with the halo of victory
and to have secured an undisturbed em
barkation. Meanwhile Moore had been carried
into his quarters at Cornna. A much
attached servant stood with tears run
ning down his face as the dying man
was carried into the house. "My
friend," said Moore, "it is nothing!"
Then, tnrning to a member of his staff,
Colonel Anderson, he said : "Anderson,
you know I have always wished to die
in this way. I hope my country will do
me justice. " Only once his lips quiver
ed and his voice shook as he said, "Say
to my mother" and then stopped, while
he struggled to regain composure.
"Stanhope," he said as his eyes fell on
his aid-de-camp's face, "remember me
to your sister" the famous Hester
Stanhope, Pitt's niece, to whom Moore
was engaged. Life was fast and visibly
sinking, hut he said, "I feel myself so

But he was not. Death came swiftly
and almost painlessly. Wrapped in a
soldier's cloak, he was carried by the
light of torches to a grave hastily dug
in the citadel at Cornna, and far off
to the south, as the sorrowing officers
stood round the grave of their dead
chief, could be heard from time to time
the sound of Soult's guns, yet in sullen
retreat. That scene is made immortal
in Wolfe's noble lines:
Few and short were the prayers we said.
And we spoke not a word of sorrow,
But we steadfastly gazed on the face that was
And we bitterly thought of the morrow.
We thought as we hollowed his narrow bed
And smoothed down his lonely pillow
That the foe and the stranger would tread o'er
his head.
And we far away on the billow.

The Strange Disease Which Attack Loco
motive Engineers.
"Railway surgeons are learning many
new facts in regard to the physical re
quirements of railway employees, " said
J. K. Matson of Chicago at the Southern.
"Recently the railway surgeons of
the United States held a national con
vention in Chicago, and one night I
heard an interesting chat in the lobby
of a hotel by some of them. The uni
versal opinion among them was that it
is just as important that the ears of
railroad employees, and particularly
the ears of locomotive engineers, should
be scientifically tested for natural or ac
quired defects as that their eyes should
be tested for possible color blindness.
' Whistle deafness' is now a common
disease among railroad employees.
Many a railroad accident could be traced
to this peculiar 'whistle deafness' if
the truth were known. This disease
makes the ear of a locomotive engineer
sensitive to the sounds by which he is
immediately surrounded, but entirely
deaf to sounds of all other kinds.
"The same condition is often ob
served among boiler makers, who cah
hear slight noises when the air is laden
with the clatter of hammers upon iron
plates, while they are insensible to the
same sounds in quiet surroundings. Lo
comotive engineers sometimes have de
fective ears that can detect slight sounds
indicating imperfect working of the ma
chinery, even while the bell is ringing
or the whistle blowing or both are in
use. A locomotive engineer thus afflict
ed should be relieved of duty for awhile
until the ear has recovered its normal
condition, enabling it to discriminate
between sounds according to their exact

The gentlemen of the bar, who not
infrequently have to take rebukes from
the bench, greatly enjoy a chance to
make a legitimate retort against the
court. The story is told .that a certain
judge who during the plea of a rather
prosy lawyer could not refrain from
gently noamng nis neaa in sleep was
caught at this "by the lawyer, who look
ed significantly at him.
"Perhaps," said the judge testily and
prevaricatingly, "the counsel thinks the
court was asleep, but he may be assured
that the court was merely cogitating."
The lawyer talked on. Presently the
judge, again overcome by his somno
lency, nodded off and aroused himself
with a little sudden snorting snore.
"If it please your honor, " 6aid the
lawyer, "I will suspend my plea until
the court shall have ceased to cogitate
"You may go on," said the judge,
and he did not fall asleep again. Ex

CootIU WhoTralnnd KiU to (live Warn
Ing of the Approach of lirvpen While
They Sawed Their Cell Hire A Sheriff
Rewarded For Vlgilin.
A story told by W. K. Ryan, an old
Ohio sheriff, illustrates the ingenuity
of criminals. Ryan was sheriff of Cuya
hoga county for several years and re
fused a third or fourth nomination for
the office for tho reason that the county
jail in Cleveland was so old and dilapi
dated that the watching of the 70 or bO
prisoners was more of a job than he
cared to keep. While he was still in
charge a notorious criminal named Fos-
er and an accompiioe were convicted
and sentenced to a long term of im-
prisonment in the Ohio penitentiary.
At that time the jail was crowded, and
Sheriff Ryan was compelled to place
both convicted men in the same cell.
The sheriff lived in the oounty build
ing, and on the night following tho con
viction of Foster he went to bed soon
after supper, intending to get up early
the next morning and take the two
prisoners to the penitentiary. About
midnight he awoke with a start. He
was trembling violently and was cou
vinced that trouble was brewing in tho
"There's something wrong in the
jail," he said to his wife, "and I'll bet
Foster is about ready to break out. I'm
going down stairs to look around."
Dressing himself, he put a revolver
into his pocket and noiselessly went
down to the chief jailer's room on the
first floor. Abe Abrams, his deputy,
was gnarding the jail door.
"What's the matter?" asked Abrams.
"What's wrong in the jail?" returned
the sheriff.
"Nothing," replied Abrams.
"Haven't you heard the noise of
saw s?" asked Ryan.
"Nope, and they ain't been working,
or I'd heard 'em, as I've been laying
mighty quiet. "
Ryan was suspicious and listened at
tentively at the jail door. There was no
noise except an occasional snore of one
of the prisoners.
"Abe," said Ryan, "I'm certain Fos
ter and his pal are np to mischief. I've
been feeling it in my bones all night,
and I'm going to sneak in two tiers un
der their cell and listen. "
He opened the jail door noiselessly
and crept through the jail until he was
under Foster's cell. lie had not made
the slightest noise. Of that he was cer
tain. He breathed regularly and with as
little noise as possible, and he could
not detect a sound which indicated that
an effort was being made to saw the
cell bars. Nevertheless, he could not
get rid of his suspicion and remained
there perfectly quiet until 5 o'clock.
Then he went to breakfast, called a
deputy and, placing the handcuffs and
leg irons on Foster and his confederate,
prepared to take tbem to Columbus on
an early train.
"As soon as we leave," said the
sheriff to Abrams, "you search the cell
and telegraph me the result at Colum
bus." When Columbus was reached about
noon, this message was handed to Ryan
Found two dozen fine file saws in cell.
Ryan handed the telegram to the
prisoners, and when they read it they
"You see, boys, that you may be
pretty foxy, but you couldn't beat the
old man," said the sheriff.
"That's right," said Foster; "but
what made you come into the jail last
night and stay so long? Who put you
"Nobody," answered Ryan. "I just
guessed it. But how did you ' know I
was there? Did you hear me?"
"Not a sound. You made a quiet
sneak for such a big man, "said Fos
ter'a pal.
"men now did you know l was
there?" persisted the sheriff.
"Now, Bee here, Mr. Ryan," replied
Foster. "We're in for a long term, and
if you will put a good word in for us
we'll tell you our secret."
"Agreedl" said Ryan.
"Well, where we got the saws is
neither here nor there and none of your
business, " said Foster, "but we knew
you were watching us and knew that if
we wanted to give you the slip we
would have to exercise more than or
dinary or human vigilance. Now, the
jail is full of rats, and jail rats, having
been killed bo often by way of amuse
ment for the prisoners, are timid. Rats
like meat. We saved some of our meat
at supper every night and scattered it
in front of the cell. The rats soon real
ized that we meant them no barm,
and after a number of experiments they
would allow one of us to feed them
while the other worked. Rats have a
keener sense of hearing than men, and
if an outsider should appear they would
run. Well, when you sneaked into the
jail last night we didn't hear you, but
the rats did. They scampered and we
quit. When you left, the rats returned,
but it was too late then, and the game
was up. "
The records of county commissioners
show that on the following day a requi
sition was received from the sheriff's
office calling for two dozen rat traps
and a case of rat poison. Pigeonholed
in the prosecuting attorney's office is an
indictment entitled "State of Ohio ver
sus Rodent, for aiding and abetting the
attempted escape of certain prisoners of
the state from the county jail of Cuya
hoga county, state of Ohio." This
charge never came to trial, and the de
fendants Buffered capital punishment
whenever captured without even hav
ing a hearing. Cleveland Letter.
