William Smith, who was released j
yesterday from the penitentiary, where |
he had served a two-year term for ob- |
tainlng money under false pretenses,
found a rather interesting reception
awaiting him outside of the prison
gates, where he was immediately ar
rested on a charge of lureeny. This
offense was committed before he had
served his two-year term. On account
of the poor health of the prisoner
Judge Palmer exercised great leniency
In sentencing him. The deputy sheriff
marched him to the county jail, where
he was sentenced to languish for a
term of one minute.

THE LITTLE HEROES.
HEROIC DEEDS OF CHILDREN
IN VARIOUS LANDS.
Urrmany Owns the Mott Frecocloo*
Ileru on Record—A Kaonliin Itoy Who
Tackled A Hungry Wolf to Save a
Probably the most precocious hero
on record Is a tiny boy called Leonard
Webber, aged 5 years, who several
days ago received a certificate of honor
from the Royal Humane Society of
Germany for raving from drowning the
life of his little brother, aged 3. The
children were playing with some other
hoys on the edge of a pond, when the
youngest Webber fell into the water.
The others, frightened by the incident,
took to their heels, but Leonurd, with
out the slightest hesitation, plunged In
and rescued his brother from a watery
death. The youthful hero, who Is a
bright, intelligent youngster, seemed
to think nothing of his brave feat.
Quite as remarkable was the case
which comes from a remote corner of
Russia, where a boy of 9 years actual
ly possessed the temerity to tackle a
great, gaunt wolf that had assailed a
tiny playmate as the latter lay asleep.
The rescuer seized an ax that chanced
to he lying on the ground, w'here it
had been left by a woodman, and gave
Ibattle to the wolf, who. finding him
self thus attacked, promptly aban
doned his murderous intentions and
trotted off into the wood. So silently
was the splendid deed performed that
the sleeper slept on through its per
formance, and it was only when he
awoke soon afterwards that he heard
how narrow an escape he had had
from a terrible death.
Russia has, indeed, been the scene
of much youthful heroism. Some
years ago, when a peasant woman was
sitting with iter little daughter, aged
about 8 years, at supper, the curtains
w’hic'i divided the living room in
which they sat from the adjoining bed
room, caught fire, through the explo
sion of an oil lamp. The mother sat
dumbfounded, not knowing what to do,
but her daughter, child as she was,
possessed more presence of mind, for,
seizing a knife, she climbed upon a
chair, cut down the blazing curtains
and then smothered the flames with
the hearth rug. In two minutes' time
tlie fire, which might have developed
into a veritable conflagration, was ex
tinguished. and the whole business was
carried out by the unaided pluck of a
mite of 8. Fortunately she escaped
with nothing worse than several trivi
al burns, and her brave conduct was
the talk of the village for a long time
Even burglars have found them
selves worsted by children little more
than babies, and in Nottingham not so
very long ago a burly disciple of Bill
Sykes was subdued and captured by
the action of a schoolboy of 12. The
boy slept in a tiny room adjoining his
father’s apartment, and was awakened
one December night by sounds of a
struggle from the latter chamber.
Without an instant's hesitation the
child seized a poker and gliding on
tiptoe into the room found his rela
tive In the grip of e. massive burglar,
who was gradually choking him.
Quick as thought the boy hit the ruf
fian, once, twice and thrive upon the
head, with the result that h** loosened
his grasp on the father's throat and
fell to the floor stunned and helpless.
Ten minutes later he was on his way
to the police station under the guar
dianship of two stalwart constables
and it afterwards transpired that he
was a malefactor long wanted by the
police for a series of daring burglaries.
Sort of Up-tn-Uute Mazcppa.
A boy named Veasy, having escaped
from the workhouse at Hinckley,
Iajicestershire, England, the porter was
ordered to proceed to Stanton, a neigh
boring villuge, and bring him back.
The porter went to Stanford on a bi
cycle, and, finding the lad, tied both
his arms with a rope, and, attaching
the end of it to his bicycle, dragged
him back to Hinckley, the man riding
at good speed. The affair has created
a great sensation in the district, and at
the recent meeting of the Hinckley
guardians the board expressed their
strong condemnation cf the porter's
conduct. One member of the bourd
said the boy was exhausted by the
treatment meted out to him. At the
meeting the porter’s resignation was
tendered and accepted, the mun's ex
planation for resigning being that he
did not care for the treatment lie re
ceived from the vagrants.

SPIDER WHO REASONED WELL
MotliH and Mo*qtilto«ui Sought an Klntrlc
Light and lie Saw IIU t'liHQce.
Insects reason at least some in
sects do. This Is no dogma. It is a
fact that can be demonstrated, or
rather that has been demonstrated.
The demonstration lies in the appli
cation of electricity to spider utili
ties. In a trolley car on a suburban
line the other evening I noticed that
around the central cluster of lights
pendant from the roof was a spider’s
web. It was evening, and by and by
the current was turned into the lights.
From a crevice somewhere In the roof
of the car emerged a great fat, well
favored spider. Hlltbely he lowered
himself by homespun ladders until
he was on a level with one of the
glowing bulbs of light. Patiently he
waited, and he had not long to wait.
Even as the first tide of electricity
surged through the dainty filament of
the lamp, heating it to illumination,
a silly moth turned from Its haphaz
ard course to hover about the light.
A score of other moths, a swarm of
pestiferous mosquitoes, a collection of
gnats, some belated Hies and other
denizens of the insect world plunged
madly into the circle of ’’all hands
around" the electric lights. It was the
spider's opportunity. Here he seized a
moth, there a mosquito. Skillfully he
threw his silken ropes about them,
binding them fast. One victim secur
ed, he hastened to secure another,
storing up choice viands of all sorts
for a midnight feast. Now, why did
the spider fix his lair near the electric
light? Was It instinct? Instinct is a
development of generations, and elec
tric light Is of recent invention. Say.
rather it was reason. This observing
spider by chance bud wandered into
an electric car. Wideawake for op
portunities, he noticed this new In
vention of man—electric light. He
had seen how the foolish moths and
mosquitoes swarmed about the blaze.
“If these foolish creatures gather here
to-night,” this cunning spider reas
oned—what other name shall we call
it?—they will gather here to-mor
row night, and on the nights to come.
Ergo, there will I pitch my tent and
set my snares."
Howr else can the spider's presence
there be explained? New York Her
“The new Mauser pistol, with which
our cavalry is about to be armed, is
a horrible-looking piece of machinery,"
said an aesthetic New Orleans sports
man. “it doesn’t resemble a firearm at
all, but looks like some strange scien
tific instrument, such as one might see
in a laboratory. Imagine a cigar box,
Japanned black, with a handle at one
end and a short tube at the other, and
there you have it. The box contains
the mechanism and the tube spouts
bullets. The cavalryman of the past
was a dashing figure. He wore a steel
cuirass and a helmet with nodding
plumes, and while he carried a brace
of pistols In his holster, his real weap
on was his trusty saber. Do you re
member the splendid fellows who are
galloping past Napoleon In Metsson
nier's ‘1807’? Since then science has
gradually sucked all the poetry out of
war, and the Mauser pistol is the last
work of brutal utilitarianism. The
cavalryman of the future will carry
nothing but a small black walnut box,
and will closely resemble a surgeon go
ing out to operate for appendicitis.
When he gets to the right spot, desig
nated by the engineer corps, he will
dismount, open the box, take out his
hideous Mauser machine, hook the
case to one end, so as to form a shoul
der rest, spray a few quarts of projec
tiles in a given direction, and go
home again to rest after the fatigue
of the fray. If the calculations of the
range finder are right, his bullets will
perforate somebody a mile away. That
will be war a la mode. In some re
spects it is a great improvement on the
old style, but it will inspire no poets.
Imagine Tennyson writing the ‘Charge
of the Light Hrigade’ about a cavalry
regiment armed with Mauser automat
ics!"— New Orleans Times-Demoerat.
