Young George Pullman, age. accord

xesslon of millions, attended through
all his life by tho luxurious surround

Oeorgo Pullman, as every ono who
rendu the newspapers knows, was ono
of the twin sons of George M. Pull
mun, tho Inventor of the sleeping-car
system that bears that name. He and
his twin brother Sanger were born on
Juno 25, ,lb"ii. The character nnd
achievement of the father arc too well
known to need exploitation hero. Pull
man, Sr from humble beginnings
amassed ,n colossal fortune. Tho foun
dations of his fortune were laid before
his Buns were born, and therc'wa.3 nev
er n time thereafter that JiIh fortune
did not prosper. He died very sud
denly, as it might bo said, without
warning. That is to say, ho lotlrod

ers, however, Florence and Harriet, re
ceived a magnllicont share. Doth of
theso ulstera arc now married, one be
ing Mrs. Frank O. Lowden of Chicago.
Sympathy for tho two boys might
have been more marked If it had not
been for tho known intention of their
mother, raado public very shortly after
tho publication of tho terms of the will,
to provldo ror thoin handsomely rrom
her own splendid Jointure. She made
good her promises in no uncertain way,
and alnco their father's death tho twins
have suffered no lack of luxury. It
was in their doings before nud after
their father's death that tho newspa
pers of Now York and Chicago, not to
speak of other cities, found the pre
text for biographical sketches that
wero not always complimentary.
Ono of tho beautiful features of this
strango modom domestic romanco has
been tho lasting and Imperishable af
fection that has always existed be

when ho passed away. Ho was nover
awny from him when he was in trouble.
Tho first trouble came, perhaps,
while the parents wero In Europe,
shortly after tho twins had returned
from separate schools in the East.
Young Oeorgo und his brother Sang-'
er, handsome as young gods in these
days, became the dunl ccuter-plcco of
a rapidly moving coterie of young men
of the town, who spilled champugno by
tho bucket, patronized nil tho first
nights at the theaters, consumed all
tho lobsters and Welsh rarebits that
wero to be hnd for money, and In other
ways managed to Interest themselves
in tho Industry of burning the candle
of life at both ends.
These, of course, wero wild oats of
the moro trivial sort. Tho tragedy be
' gan to darken when i,Ue blessed fitato
of matrimony hove into view ns a pos
slblo solution of tho destiny of tho
twins. It was tho matrimonial expe
rience of both that gave tho nowspaper
0 historians their best opportunities, and
tiiat brought to both brothers a noto

J. V. Fernald of Chicago, plighted her

Pullman, Jr., wub engaged to Miss Fe
llclte Oglrsby, a daughter of the form

Immediately after the publication of

Bcemed to thrlvo fairly well, though
there was no appreciable diminution of
the fervor with which thoy sought the

grieve over thu loss of his fiancee.
Young (ieorge went the puce as of
yore, and the next piece of news to
fctartle various communities was to the
effect that lie and Miss Fornald had
eloped from his motlior's summer cot
lago at Klburn, NV.I., where the young
lady was an honored guest. Tho two

and his w'ffe have lived happily. It
wns to tho doomed George that the
Very 'shortly after tils brother
Sanger's mart lage he resumed a lornier
friendship with Mrs. Blanche Mowers,
one of the playmates of his childhood,
and the wire or the composer of sev
eral popular songs. The two were
seen together constantly. Oeorgo took
Mrs. Dowers to New York, nnd It was
while living with her at tho Oorrnrd
hotel, on Forty-fourth street, that Mr.
Bowers brought suit for divorce
ngnlust his wife and an action against
Mr. Pullman for $30,000 damages for
alienation of tho lady's affections. Mr.
Howers hns since secured a decree of
dlvorco rrom his wlfo. The. damage
suit probably terminates with the
death of Mr. Pullmnu.
Mrs. Pullman (formerly Miss Fcr
nald) secured a divorce from her hus
band last December, with balm for her
reelings In tho way or $1,000 annual
alimony. That balm may or may not
cease with the death ot the offender.
Fourteen days after that divorce Mr.
Pullman married Mrs. Jlrnzcllc, u
Bister or his brother Sanger's wire. The
ceremony was performed in the Ar
lington hotel In Carson City, Nev.
Since thnt time nnd up to tho dny of
Mr. Pullman's death, he and his wire
lived In California.
MACHINE TO INDUCE SLEEP.

Tho alarm clock which may with
reasonable certainty bo depended upon
to awaken you at any desired time In
tho morning Is soon to be greatly en
hanced in value by another mechanical
attachment. This is a sleop producer.
To persons troubled with -sleeplessness
or sleepiness tlio new contrivance
will undoubtedly prove u boon. It will
put you to sleep ut night and waken up
at tho proper time In tho morning.

Sevcrnl other mechanical contriv
ances for inducing sleep liavo been
plnced on tho market from time to
time. All nre founded upon the well
known fact that tho concentration of
the mind upon n slnglo Impression
produces sloop. The most complicated
of these mechanical sleep producers Is
the "vibrating coronet," Jii3t Invented
by Dr. Gnlifo or Paris. It consists of
three bands of metal encircling tho
head. A branch strip extends to either
or the eyelids, and by aid of a spring
gently vibrates against It. This Is used
to Induce sleep In tho patients of the
clinic of Dr. ilertlllon.

I propounded to (lultcnu a series of
questions which, with few exceptions,
were such as ho had not answered be
fore. They related to his mental and
moral experiences while contemplating
hlu objections to the course of Gar
lleld toward himself to the rise of the
Idea that ho must "removo him," to
his shrinking from It at Hist or other
wise, and what would have been his
opinion If President Gniflold hnd re
covered, writes Dr. T. M. Huckley In
the Century Magazine. Many of them
involved sharp discriminations, and
were such as would have puzzled a
typical moiiomnulae or paranoiac. He
unswered the questions, made no reply
thnt required explanation, used no
superfluous words, did not ask for a
repetition of any questions, nor em
ploy a word in an Improper sense; but
occasionally he contrndlcted the rec
ord of his own com so and his own
testimony. He gave no Indication of
being, or ever having been, Irrespon
sibly tnsaue. His conversation and
bearing were unlike those of a man
who had committed a crime, unil after
doing so .had made himself believe
that he could not help It. His motives
were obvious. He desired ofllce; dls-
appointed In tho quest he felt ror
vengerul and tho Idea occuned to him
to kill the president and put tho
"Stalwarts" in power. When It first

ho could have cast It out and resisted
Its fascination, but as ho voluntarily
dwelt upon It Its proportions grow..
Tho root questions In his enso were;
Did ho know whnt he was doing? Old
ho know that it was a crime? Had
ho powor to refrain rrom doing It?
These, I bollovc, could bo answered
only In the affirmative by ono un

A New Alpine Danger,
Tho wlro cables used by tourists for
protection and aid In tho jvlps may,
according to tho latest experiences, bo
dangerous. An accident which oc
curred on July 20, during an ascent of
tho Trlbulnuu In the Stubuler Alps is
n proof of this. SeVernl tourists on
that day ascended to tho summit of
the mountain, which Is 3,100 motres
high. Near the top, where tho ascent
had to bo mado with the aid of wlro
cables, tho rocks suddenly began to
hum when an Ico pick came In con
tact with tho cable, and sparks wero
seen. Shortly before thoro had been
a thunderstorm which caused all these
electrical phenomena. Suddenly the
lightning struck tho cable, stunning
a tourist and tho guldo and burling
them several hundred metres below.
The othor tourists wero also struck.
