Mosby as special agent of the General Land Office, with headquarters in the west, has brought into prominence one of -the picturesque figures of the civil war a man admired by the south for hU dash and brilliancy and reviled by northern soldiers because his warfare was of the guerilla type. A Virginian by birth, be is now approaching his 69th birthday. While in the University of Virginia he shot and seriously wounded a fellow student who bad as saulted him and, during , his confine ment for this offense, he studied law so thoroughly that soon after his release he waa admitted to the bar. At the beginning of the war he fought with Joseph E. Johnston and later with Stuart, but after two years he organ ized, in northern Virginia, a force of irregular cavalry and during the re mainder of the war be harassed the Federal troops by cutting o. communi cations between the armies and des troying supply trains. His partisan rangers, when not on a raid, scattered for safety and remained in conceal ment, with orders to assemble again at a given time and place. Various ex peditions were sent out against him, but friendly neighbors always kept him Informed of the enemy's approach. Mosby held rank In the Confederate army and reported to Gen. Stuart and, after his death, to Gen. Lee. His par tisans received the same pay from the COL. JOHN 8. MOSBY. Confederate government as the regular cavalrymen. At the close of the war he resumed the practice of law, supported Grant and Hayes and was for six years con sul to Hong Kong. Thihppj Couldn't KP Vp. Speaking of tbe suspension of his commission house, "Corn King" Phil lips says: "In a nutshell, it was a case of too much business. It has grown so rapidly that our facilities for taking care of it have not kept pace with It., Money came easy and it went easy," says the Chicago Chron icle. On reading this one naturally recalls tbe fact that not so very long ago Mr. Phillips made a speech In Minneapolis In which be proposed a case of a great deal more business so much more as to make tbe Phillips commission busi ness look like a molehill beside a mountain In the comparison. Tbe business which he proposed was nothing less than that of keeping corn forever cornered, with 50 cents per bushel as the minimum price. In order to work this business success fully he proposed to establish a bank with a capital of $50,000,000 or such a matter and to establish mammoth elevators' also to atore the corn of fered by farmers aa security for loans from the big banks on tbe basis of 60 cents a bushel, with a margin of 10 cents off. Tbe magnitude of the business had no terrors for the "corn king" when he made that speech. In his mind he had no trouble in conducting a bank with $50,000,000 or more capital and an elevator buslneaa running up to hun dreds of millions of bushels. In bis mind, too, It waa a perfectly simple matter to keep the price of corn up to 50 cents a bushel or above. What doe he think of It now? He admits that bis respectable but com paratively tHfllng commission business has run away from blm. He has not been able to keep up with It or keep track of It. Doea he still think he could keep up with his rousing per petual corner business f "Money came easy and It went easy" In hla little business; how does be think might be with that tremendously big busi ness? Might not the easy-comlrg money go too easily? As the World TKcdolH)es fltgrou Atvtd by Trophrt. Simon B. Needbam, who claims to be ih nr,rfc- propaei referred to ia the Bible, the seventh child of Judah, born to be a priest and a king before the Lord of Israel, is holding the ne groes and superstitious whites under a spell by his street corner talks In Macon, Mo. He Is a remarkable per sonage. He says that his mother was born at Richmond, Va in the year 1800. Her maiden name was Julia Judah, the daughter of Emanuel Judah. She was left an orphan at an early age, kidnaped by slave dealers and sold Into bondage. This enslaved Jewish woman then became the moth er of thirteen children eleven black and two white. The "prophet " claims to be one of these two white children. The daughter was bought out of slav ery for tbe sum of 1800 and be freed himself in the twenty-fourth year of S. B. NEEDHAM.

His mission Neednam announces to be to deliver the natives and to establish a universal brotherhood of man and fatherhood of God, and says the thing Is to be achieved in his day and gen eration. While not prepossessing in appear ance, the "prophet" talks with some fluency and much animation. He an nounced that he could repeat any verse in the Bible correctly offhand, and his frequent use of the scriptures to prove his peculiar teachings im pressed his hearers. He says he Is in the seventy-fourth year of his second earth life and has lived a number of years In Kansas City, Mo., where he opened a "universal mission" in 1899. Sympathy and "Btuin4. President Kruger is not aware of the fact that sympathy must not be allowed to spoil a good trade. He has heard about American sympathy for the Boers. Evidently be does not take much stock in It. The message which he has sent by the pastor of a Boer church in Pretoria, who is now in this country asking aid for the women and children in foreign prison camps is: "Tell the American people they are helping to murder us by sending mules and horses to the British generals." Americans have sold several million dollars' worth of these animals to flrjttsh purchasing agents, and to . a subJdV, extent have contributed to the these aniTi. of the Boers. Without have made thfche British would not Nevertheless, It is say they have, nearly every instance tusay that In raised and Bold these mules amn who sympathize with the Boers, but tis did not let their sympathies Interfere with the sale of their live stock, nor are they supposed to know for whom they are purchased. For all that they are aware they may be for the Boers. President Kruger's message was not a tactful one. He would make a poor solicitor for contributions. But tbe need of the women and children In the prison camps of the Transvaal is great, and President Kruger's ungracious re marks should not deter Americans from giving for the relief of these suf ferers.

THE NEWCASTLE ft ANT IS ClOSfO anafactorers Retaliate by Breaking tribe at the Clark Mill Both Shaf fer sad Schwab Kay that the other Mast rirst Saggaet Veaee. PITTSBURO, Ta., Aug. 8. In the big steel strike honors are even in this section tonight. The Amalga mated association succeeded in closing down the big steel plant at Newcas tle and the manufacturers partially broke tbe strike at tbe Clark mill in thia city. Neither side is exulting, nor is there any expression of dis couragement. Up to this hour not the slightest trouble has occurred at any point in this Immediate territory and the Amal gamated men are corcspondingly hap py, because this condition would seem to be tbe carrying out of tbe associa tion's departure In the handling of strikes. The quiet waiting of the strikers may be one of the surprises hinted at by the national officers. From one or two points the strikers are reported as restless and eager for action, but so far they have kept faith with their leaders nnd refrained from committing any breach of tbe peace. The United States Steel corporation It was learned today from an official source, will at once proceed In a sys tematic manner to start its closed sheet mills, making the non-union plants of the Kiskimlnetas valley the cradle where strike-breakers will be trained and then sent out to the mills that are closed. So far as President Schwab Is con cerned no overtures will be made to the workers. In a talk with a Pitts burg man in New York yesterday be said: "We have made our last propo sition to the Amalgamated associa tion and will now proceed to start our works." President Shaffer makes this coun ter statement: "The next proposition must come frcm the United - States Steel corporation officials." Thus the two officials stand. It seems as if only outside efforts can bring them together. The trust offi cials have decided to go ahead slowly In the matter of starting mills and to do so with aa little publicity as pos sible. The strongholds of the sheet com pany are the mills at Vandergrift, the largest in the country, Leechburg, Ap polo and Scottdale. It has been de elded to take aa many skilled men away from these places as possible without retarding operations there and start the mills where there is the least danger of an outbreak. The places left vacant at the mills men tioned will be filled with men deserv ing of promotion and they will be given better positions. This move will be undertaken slowly and with caution. The plan further contem plates that after a time many of the strikers will return when they see one after another of the closed mills resuming. This plan was tested and was found to be feasible so far as the mills at Hyde Park and Wellsvllle It and it has been decided to adopt nre conens the sheet and hoop mills CUMMINS ON f niT "0T.

He does not intend to advo cate an increase in the expenditure of funds for this particular purpose, but be will insist on having all school property under his supervision kept as neat as the appropriations will al low. In his tours over the state, Mr. Fowler has found considerable school property in a badly neglected state, due in nearly every Instance to care lessness on the part of school officers rather than to lack of funds. "It is my intention to publish some time during the winter a pamphlet on the rural school, its architecture, material, grounds, furnishings, etc.," said Mr. Fowler. "The pamphlet will be well Illustrated. It will contain il lustrations of the best, the average and the poorest school buildings in tbe state that are made of stone, brick, wood or sod. I want photographs of representative school buildings in all sections of tbe state. I want also interior views, representing the- two extremes of tasteful de'joration and of criminal neglect I .vant some views that will show the condition of tbe grounds and the outbuilding.. The publication will be a graphic ex hibit of the actual school conditions , of tbe state, designed to inform the public and show them the advan tages under which the schools and school people labor in different parts of the state. I hare asked the vari ous county superintendents to assist me in obtaining these photographs. I ' have asked them also for information relative in rural school matters, such as how many have patent desks, how many have home-made desks, how many have both, and as to tbe use of slate blackboards, plaster boards, wooden boards and other kinds of boards, and how many schools have none, besides several other questions."
