or surplus in the treasury is 45,
835,702, or $I,000,00 less than a month
ago. National bank depositories hold
47,939,f9S of Government funds, or
400,000 leas than on October 1. The
gold fund balance during the past month
has decreased 81,500,000 and now
amounts to S187,572,3S0. The silver
fund balance, exclusive of 50,000,000
trade dollar bullion, has decreased
about S500,000 and amounts to 511,102,000.
The treasury now holds 283,593,521
standard silver dollars, $4,843,043 silver
bullion and $2,328,373 silver certificates,
against which there is outatanding8277,
819,644 silver certificates. The silver
fund balance reached the lowest point
October 17, when after deducting silver
certificates in circulation, a balance of
but 5,116,851 standard silver dollars and
only 51,551,957 in silver certificates re
mained in the treasury. Since that date
there have been slight accumulations,
almost from day to day, until the bal
ance now stands only half a million less
than October 1. The circulation of
standard silver dollars has increased
about 52,500,000 during the past month,
and amounted to 559,SSS.4S0.
Government receipts during October
aggregated 532,492,607, or about half a
million more than in October, 1SSS; cus

million more than in October a year ago;
internal revenue receipts were 511,625,
4G9 a hundred thousand more than in
October, 1S5S; and receipts from miscel

or half a million less than in October a
year ago. Government receipts for the
first four months of the current fiscal
year reached in the aggregate 5132,029,
004. or barely 5100,000 more than for the
corresponding months of the preceding
fiscal year. Customs receipts for the
past four months aggregated S77,

aggregates 5124,396,539, or about 514,000,
000 more than for the corresponding four
months of the preceding fiscal year.
The principal increase over last year is
in pensions, the charges for the past
four months amounting to 540,152.032,

What He Says Rark Told Him Concerning
Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 8. Assistant
State's Attorney IJaker, of Chicago, had
a long interview with Bob Heffer, and
from him received a corroboration of
many of the details connected with the
butchery of Cronin which Gillette re
counted on Thursday.
Burke, according to Gillette, took a
fancy to Heffer at first and was very
communicative with him, telling him
many details of the crime. He told
Heffer that Coughlin was the main actor
in the crime. He told Heffer that sand
bags were used by two of the assassins,
while the third wielded a common base
Burke was under the impression that
Cronin was being decoyed to the cottage
under the pretext that he was going to
attend the woman mentioned in Friday's
Four men were waiting in the cottage
for him. They listened for the sound
of wheels. At last the carriage drove
up and an instant later the doctor hur
ried up to the door. He knocked loudly
and hastily as if he realized that his
presence was urgently required.
Two of the assassins stood behind tho
door ready to strike, while one of the
others, from the inner room, called out
in a loud voice, "come in." The door
was quickly opened and the doctor
The instant he was in one of the as
sassins slammed the door, while the
other struck the physician a terrible

fell heavily to the floor.

some wav, Burke suggested that it be
thrown into a catch-basin. The sugges
tion was adopted.
When they went to carry the trunk
out, blood was dripping from it and it
ran on the floor and on the boots of some
of them. The trunk was set down and
the leaks in the trunk stopped with'cot

tor's instrument case.
Burke always declined to say who

Baker says, makes it quite claar'that it

Created Modem Rosaia.
In 1722 he created himself Emperor,
placing the imperial crown upon his
own head, and soon after on that of tho
Livonian peasant girl whom he married,
the mistress of his favorite Prince
Menschikoff, once an itinerant vender
of meat pies: she afterward succeeded
Peter as Empress Catherine I. His
merciless cruelty was shown early, on
bis return from his first journey, after
pulling down the revolt of the Streletz,
a body of janissaries who had risen to
replace his sister Sophia on the throne.
He executed 2,000 of them in cold blcod.

His interference was as trying in
small as in great things. One story of
his didactic tyranny sounds like a lesson
out of "Sandford and Merton." It is
told by a Frenchman who heard it on
the spot in Finland, where he was sent
by Louis Phillipe's government to ob
tain blocks of red poryhyry which
the Czar Nicholas had granted
for the tomb of Xapoleon under the dome
of the Invalides at Paris. Peter was
traveling incognito in part of Finland
just conquered, where he was executing
some naval works. He met an over-fat
man, who told him he was going to
Petersburg. "What for?" asked the
Czar. "To consult a doctor about my
fat, which has become very oppressive."
"Do you know any doctor there?" "No."
"Then I will give you a word to my
friend. Prince Menschikoff and he wUl
introduce you to one of the Emperor's
physicians." The traveler went to the
prince's house with a note, the answer
was not delayed; the next day, tied
hand and feet, the poor man was dragged
off on a cart to the mines. Two years
after Peter the Great was visiting the
mines when suddenly the miner threw
down his pick, rushed up to him, and
fell at his feet, crying: "Grace, grace,
what is it I have done?" Peter looked
at him astonished, until he remembered
the story, and said: "Oh, so that is you;
I hope you are pleased with me. Stand
np. How thin and slight you have be
come! You are quite delivered from
your over-fat; it is a first-rate cure. Go,
and remember that work is the best
antidote against your complaint!" Prob
ably, as over-fat is a disease, the poor
man died of his "cure."
"The impatient activity of Peter,' as
a German writer calls it, attempted im
possibilities; a perfectly barbarous peo
ple could not be dragged up to the level
of civilization of other nations by mere
force of a despot's will without passing
through any of the intermediate stages.
Accordingly the mass of the Russian
people continues much the same in hab
its and education as they were when
Peter began his reforms, and a sort of
vaneer among the people and military
classes covers a degree of bar
barism and corruption which the
rest of Europe has long left
behind. The restless ambition which
he bequeathed to his successors has gone
on to the present day. Cut off at first
both from the Baltic and Black seas,
they conquered the intervening terri
tory in each case, and now declare that
they will never rest until they get pos

There is one pawnbroker in Washing

stones had that peculiar bluish white
color so highlv prized among lovers of

advanced him 5250 oa them. The
stranger departed, and in due course of
time the pawnbroker tried to dispose of
them. He exhibited the diamonds to a
well-known dealer, who said if they
would stand a test they were easily
worth 51.500. The stones were removed
from their settings and placed in a bot
tle of alcohol. They were then shaken
for about five minutes, taken out and
carefullv cleaned. From the beautiful

The German Emperor's Bread.
The German Emperor is fond of va
riety, even in such small matters as his
daily bread. Thus, for instance, he takes
for breakfast a small white loaf, the top
of which is powdered over with salt, and
which, accordingly, goes by the name of
salt-bun. Its cost is one mnnr. Aftor
jt he consumes a half-penny bun, known
as the "Lucca-eye." For his sandwiches
he requires yet another kind of bread,

THE TRUE PTARMIGAN.
Aa Arctic Tfllrd Whiefc Varies Its Garb Few
Tines a Tear.
The tnta ptarmigan, I take it, is the
most glacial development a northern
most and peculiarly mountainous off
shoot of the wintry willow grouse. It
inhabits, says Dr. Dresser, the more
elevated, rocky and barren localities,
where it replaces the Scottish grouse
and the willow grouse, and it seldom or
never descends to the lowlands, where
these latter species have their home,
unless driven down by stress of weather
in search after food. The ptarmigan
ranges, in fact, in smaller bodies than
the willow grouse, over larger areas of
inaccessible rock. Being, therefore,
much exposed to danger from birds of
prey in open places, natural selection
has insured its being very protectively
colored; in other words, aU those ptar
migan that could readily be seen have
been eaten by hawks or similar enemies,
and only those birds have been left to
breed and reproduce their like which
exactly matched the color of the ground
at all seasons. So admirably has this
result at last been attained (by what
somebody has boldly described as the
"masked beneficence" of the birds of
prey) that one may walk through the
very midst of a covey of ptarmigan, as
they squat close to the ground, without
ever so much as perceiving a single
bird. Moreover, the ptarmigan varies
its garb with the time of year
as regularly and religiously as the dra
pers in Regent street. Not content with
a single change, it goes in for separate
winter, spring and autumn fashions.
During the height of summer, when the
ground in its native mountains is free
from snow, it becomes dark in hue to
suit the surrounding rocks. In autumn,
when the abundance of mosses and lich
ens gives a gray appearance to the
country, says Mr. Bowdler Sharpe, it
dresses itself afresh in an ashy-gray
tint. And, finally, in winter, when the
snow lies thick around, it hides itself
sedulously in snow-white plumage.
This treble change of hue every year
is probably unexampled in any other
bird or animal. Ptarmigan are very
large feeders, because they live on twigs
of ling, crowberry and other extremely
innutritious foodstuffs, not even despis
ing willow leaves, rushes, sedge and
cottongrass. None of these can be ac
curately described as luxurious or un
duly succulent viands. The natural
consequence is that the poo- birds have
to spend most of their time feeding and
the rest in digesting, in order to squeeze
a livelihood out of their wretched past
ure; so that that they almost resemble,
in this respect, the herbivorous animals
that chew the cud. That, indeed, is why
they exist as a special species at all:
they ar wiljow grouse adapted, in the
strcctari-of their bodies and digestive
organs, to the most unfavorable and
coldest situations on the bleak and al
most barren 'mountain tops. Cornhill
