'lone train robber captured
Robs Fifteen Passengers, but Is Ar
rested Before He Could Leave Train.
Kansas City, Nov. 26. A lono rob
ber, mnsltcd and armed, robbed fifteen
passenROts on eastbound Chicago and
Alton passenger train No. 24, nenr
Glasgow, Mo., early tills morning. Ho
was arrested before ho could lcavo tho
trnln and was taken to Glasgow and
placed In jail.
Tho train Is known as tho "early
bird." It loft Kansas City Sunday
night. At Slator tho robber, wearing
a mask over his eyes, boarded tho
rear car as tho train was pulling out.
After tho train had gained speed tho
man, revolver In hand, cntored tho car
and began a systematic robbery of the
passengers. Fifteen of them were
made to disgorge. As tho train passed
through Glasgow, at which point It
docs not stop, tho man was seen at
work by tho station agent, who wired
tho chief dispatcher of tho fact. Arm
strong, tho next station cast o' Glas
gow, was notified and officers woro at
tho station tbero to meet tho train.
No stop Is ordinarily made at Arm
strong nnd tho robber, ovldently satis
fied In tho belief that ho was secure
for this reason, suspected no hnrm
whon that point was rcachod. When
tho train stopped at Armstrong and
tho officers boarded It they caught tho
robber rodhanded. Ho was taken
without serious difficulty.
Tho description of tho robber fits In
a general way that of tho man who
robbed tho Rock Island overland train
on Nov. 9, and escaped.

HOW TO CONTROL A VOICE.
British Officer Says Nature
the Sole Regulator.
To a recent Iesiio of tho British
Medical Journal Major II. F. E. Austin
of Imtnrfn, Malta, contributed a papor
on commonly ovcrlokod factors In
vocal mechnnlsm In which ho asserts
thnt the universal Idea thnt all natur
ally possess either good, bad or Indif
ferent voices Is wrong and contends
that nature Is directly responsible for
one nnd orly one of theno conditions,
and that the others must be attri
buted to man's unconscious departure
from nnturo's laws.
It will bo nowB to many that by
far tho greater number do not possesB
full control of the adductor muscles of
the cords nnd are thereforo unablo to
place and keep tho cords In tho most
appropriate position quickly. The
author asserts that It is surprising
what a number of professional volco
users, as well ns amateurs, fall in this
respect. According to his thinking,
the mnjorlty of voices are lost not
from overwork but as a result of im

First Season of "Debrutallzed" Game
Shown Decrease In Dead and Hurt.
Chicago, Nov. 20. Eleven dead and
104 severely Injured 1b tho record of
tho football season of 1900, according
to tho resume of the season's acci
dents In tin Tribune. These figures
nro comptred with tho casualties of
1905, when 18 players wero killed and
159 severely Injured, nnd, according to
tho Tribune, shows that "debrutallzed"
football has accomplished in a lur&o
degree tho object aimed at, In render
ing tho gnmo less dungerous to llfo
'and limb. Tho decrease in casualties
is especially marked among high
school players. In the season of 1905
11 eleven high school players wero
killed and 47 Injured. In tho season
just closed 7 woro killed nnd 25 wore
badly hurt. All tho college and high
school games this year wero played
under tho new rules drawn after tho
'close of Inst season to satisfy tho agi
tation for loss dangerous football
aroused hy tho long list of casualties
in tho season of 1905. Tho value of
tho now rules Is shown- In tho record
of tho big college games. This year
not one fatality has occurred In tho
games played by the larger colleges.
Tho Tribune cnrrlcs Interviews with
a number of collego presidents nnd
conches, east and west, in which tho
opinion is generally expressed that
tho now rules have achieved the elim
ination of much of tho hrutnllty and
dnngcr to life nnd limb that character
ized the game In former years and
that, above all, It has made the game

Soap Bubbles for. Weaklings.
Blowing soap bubbles for the de
velopment of the lungs of nervous nnd
anaemic children Is a treatment ad
vised by a Montreal physician, and It
has met with romarkablo and gratify
ing results. Tho Cnnndlan doctor,
who has dovoted himself to obstetrics,
has found In tho latter years of his
practlco that mothers In the fashion
able world object to crying babies,
and do not hesitato to sanction tho
ubo of opiates by nurses and tho
nurses give full and unqualified ap
provaland ho recites what Is well
known to every physician, that the
baby which Is lulled to sleep and not
permitted to howl and yoll becomes
deficient in lung power, and after
baby' ood is passed is a weakling. He
has undertaken the treatment of just
this class of children by tho simple
but original method of expanding and
contracting tho lungs by a pastime
which tho sickliest child will take
hold of with little or no persuasion.
He has devised a saponaceous mix
ture which will make "tough" soap
bubbles, so that in tho desire to In

globo tho little patient will exerclso
his or her lungs to tho fullest extent
and the slmplo little trick Is working
In tho caso of tho adductor muscles
of tho cords this can only bo done by
using tho voice In a most Inartistic
although physiological manner. That
is to say, words Bhould bo sung
or spoken quickly In acute pene
trating tones ("pat-n-wat-qunck" be
given ns an excellent phraso for
the purpose.) Tho voice should bo
oxt( nded up and down, note hy
noto, in this manner until tho limits
of tho compass are reached. Classi

should not be attempted beforo this
has been done.

NEBRASKA FACES COAL FAMINE
Burlington Decides to Cut Off Grain
Hauling to Relieve Fuel Stringency.
Omaha, Nov. 2C Tho Burlington
railroad Is about to cease hauling ull
grain until tho coal famine In Ne
braska has been relieved. Tho car
congestion has become so serious that
several towns aro without a ton of
coal in reserve Tho situation de
mands immediate remedy. Tho Bur
lington officials say thoy cannot pos
sibly supply tho demand for freight
cars for grain and coal at the samo
time. As tho coal demand is Impera
tive and grain can wait awhile, they
will turn Uielr attention toward re
lieving the coal famine.
Case of Pie Versus Tart.
Usngo alono must decide tho Issue
between "plo" and "tart," which has
returned to us with tho gooseberries.
Philology, at any rate, draws no clear
distinction. It only traces back "tart"
to tho Latin "tortus," twisted tho
pastry being the twisted part, of
course; while It Is very doubtful about
"pie." On tho whole, Skoat's conjec
ture that this expresses tho miscella
neous nature' of the contents Is per
suobIvo. All tho "pies" seem to' go
back to tho original ono, tho magplo
In I.ntln,' "pica" from whose black
and white aspect come "pied" and
"picbnld." The old ordinal or service
book was called "pica" or "pie" be
cause of tho appearance of tho black
letter typo on tho whlto page; and tho
edible plo, having equally mixed con
tents, mny lmvo been christened after
this by mcdlaval humor. Printers
lnngungo retains both "pica" for a
kind of typo and "plo" for typo all
jumbled up. London Chronicle.
EXERCISE FOR THE BRAIN.
Promised Much for Balloon.
An English newspaper published on
June 13, 1824, contained the following
paragraph: "A Dr. Thornton has pro

scribers at 10 guineas ($50) each to
patronize- his scheme. Ho describes
his new vehicle as having wings nnd a
tall, worked by a steam engino and
mechanical powers; mn'do to ascend
and descend at pleasure, to travel 100
miles within an hour in any direction
and to carry letters nnd persons to
nny distance." The performance did
not equal the promise.
The "Blood Bible."
A famous Bible, known ns the
"Blood Bible," has been sold by public
auction at Breslau to tho descendants
of Frederick von Tronic, its original
owner, tor $200. Frederick von Trenk
was imprisoned nnd confined in chains
by Frederick the Gient for his temer
ity In making lovo to tho King's sis
ter, Princess Amnlia. During his in
carceration Von Trenk inscribed 200
blank pages in this Bible, a present
from the princess, with love sonnets
in her honor, every word of which
was written with his own blood.
