Criminal Falls In Attempt to Assassi. nate Great Mexican. An attempt to assassinate President i Diaz was made Oct. 2f, as ho was passing tho Cantandor Garden at Guanajuato. Ellas Toscano, a notorious criminal, fired five shots at tho president. Al though ho used ball cartridges at short j-ango, Diaz was not Injured, nor was tho car in which ho was riding hit l)y any of the bullets. Toscano has a most evil reputation. His latest crime was tho murder of tho Jcfa politico of San Luis Potlsl, for which ho was sentenced to a term In prison. He hnd Just been released when ho attempted to kill tho presi dent. Ho is now closely guarded in jail at Guanajuato. An attempt was made on the life of President Diaz on Dec. 10, 1897. Ho attonded on that day tho public cele brations In tho City of Mexico of tho annlvorsary of Moxlcan Independence. During tho festivities a man rushed toward him and, evading all offorts tnndo to check his progress, reached President Diaz. Who president's sldo and attempted to kill him. Great excitement prevailed, but it was soon seen that tho efforts of tho murderer had been futile. Prosldent Diaz was not hurt. Tho as sassin was at onco arrcstod and thrown Into prison.

State Official Collects Statistics for French Scientist Their Lot Hard. A Boston stato official who has been investigating tho subject for Prof. Ffiedrlch Prlnzing of Paris, has dis covered that Boston has moro widows In proportion to its population, than any other city in America, evou Chi cago, Philadelphia, Now York and other large centers. Tho young widow, ho says, is ono of tho most unfortunato of beings, and not nt all tho gay butterfly which popular fancy has pictured. Prof. Prlnzing has collected a ro markablo group of statistics which show that poverty sorely oppresses tho widow, and that sho Is moro sub ject to Insanity, consumption, conflict with tho law and death than hor mar ried sister. All theso woes fall moro heavily on the young widow. Dr. Prin zing's opinion Is that tho stato should tnako provision lor tho support of tho widowed and their children, directly, Instead of indirectly through hospitals and insano asylums. There aro 3.200.000 wlilmvs In nvnrv Isrtnnnnnn .f .,.. ii ... ,nn 000 have absolutely no Income. Recovers From Lockjaw. Members of tho mcdicnl profession In Now York nro greatly interested In tho caso of a Patchoguo young man named Henry Price, who has survived ono of tho worst attacks of lockjaw that tho local physicians havo over treated. Tho recovery of Prico is at tributed to tho use of anti-toxin, $100 worth having boon forwarded from Albany for tho uso of tho local sur geon, Dr. M. D. Davis, when tho caso was reported about a week ago. Prico is now able to sit up in bod and to move his mouth and arms, and it is thought that in a short tlmo he will completely recover. Dr. Davis contends that this caso Is ono of tho most remarkahlo ever heard of and ho has sent a history of It to various prominent surgeons and medical Jour, nals. Can't Live Without Fighting. Charles W. H. Needham, a truo sol dier of fortune, whoso homo was onco In Kansas City, but now is tho wldo world, Is visiting his old homo, where ho was teller of tho Union National bank. Since taking up his wanderings ho has fought the Mataboles in South Africa, tho Spaniards in Cuba, tho Filipinos, Tagalogs and Moros in tho Phlllpplno Islands, sought other fields of battlo In Asia Minor nnd to-dny Is In Kansas City awaiting nn out break between Russia and Japan that ho may servo under tho banner of tho mikado, Needhnm Is 32 years old, according to Judgo Jonney, and has declared ho can't llvo In a land whoro no lighting Is going on. Determined Young Japanese. Yoshio Yamanato, a determined young Japaneso of wealthy connec tions In his natlvo country, Is fireman on a locomotive running over tho Pennsylvania lino between Pittsburg and Groensburg. Ho camo hero to learn tho railroad buulr.oss thoroughly and worked two years in railroad shops In Altoona, Then ho sought a Job on a locomotlvo and was assigned to his present duty. Every ovehlng ho passos his tlmo as fashionable young Americans do, but at C o'clock In tho morning, nttlrod in regulation ovoralls, ho Is ready for his dally run. Tho superintendent of "his division says tho dark-eyed little Oriental will II soon.no Dromoiou FELL FAR WITHOUT INJURY. Record Is Believed to Be Two Miles From Balloon. Tho accounts of certain cat-like per formances of several Now York work men who recently fell great distances and lauded right side up and unhurt excited some incredulity. But a fall of ninety feet or so, which was tho height chronicled In ono of tho cases, is a mere bagatelle compared with tho drop experienced by a balloonist In Danville, Ohio. His irnmo is L. W. Snrtwell, nnd ho full 1,200 feet. It hnppencd through tho failure of his parachute to act, says tho Aeronautical World, which Is authority for tho facts, and ho struck mo ground with such force that both feet were driven six Inches Into tho earth. Tho mnn sustained compound fractures In both legs and tho se verest shaking up of his life, but ho wns not killed. Tho physicians who attended him had no doubts of his re covery. Tho case of two civil engineers who fell a distance of two miles was differ ent. Thoy would undoubtedly have been killed except for a fortuitous cir cumstance. Their bnlloon burst when two mllos abovo tho earth. Tho car contnlnlug tho aeronauts shot down with tremendous speed. When It had almost reached' tho ground the bal loon fortunately took tho form of a parachute and tho men wcro landed without receiving tho slightest injury, USE OF OLD TIN CANS. Much Money Made Out of These Seem Ingly Valueless Articles. "Do you know," said a Philadelphia business mnn tho other day, "I onco thought that all old tin cans wero good for wero to tlo on the tails of poor lit tlo dogs or ns food for goats. I was greatly surprised a few weeks ngo when I wns shown through a certain establishment to And that tho material in a raw stato was chiefly tin cans res cued from tho various 'dumps' of tho city. Tho products of tho foundry in question nro elevator weights, window sash weights-and ballast for boats. "When tho cans arrive nt tho foun dry they nro piled Into a lnrgo iron grating which Is covered by a sheet iron hood through which is a smoke stack. Crude oil Is sprinkled over tho cans and set on fire. This destroys all the labels, loosens the dirt and melts, tho solder. Tho solder falls below and is collected and mado Into blocks to be used again. Some of tho cans fall apart when the solder melts, and tho Bheets forming tho shell nro straight ened out und sold to trunk dealers, who uso them for protecting tho cor ners of trunks. Somo aro also sent to button factories, whore thoy aro usod as disks for cloth-covered buttons. Tho remainder of tho cans uro put into a blnst furnace, melted and molded Into weights."
