was needed for a new heating appara
tus , and the ecclesiastical authorities
resorted to an auction. The Chronique
has a depressing theory that America
Is to become so much richer than the
Old World that Europe will be de
spoiled of its art treasures unless strict
me.-isnrus he taken. Foreign criticism
is self-c'ontrank-tory. Americans , it la
sometimes said , : : n too much engross

tils name is " .Jimmy" Feiley. Ht
holds a bootblack privilege in a Middle-
town. N. Y. , hotel. The other day he
drew $ . " 00 from the bank , representing
about all of his savings , and went up
and down the streets for a day or two ,
distributing It directly to people whom
he knew , paying a little rent here , buy
ing some groceries there , providing del
icacies for the sick , giving some poor
fellow a chance to start in a small busi
ness , and carrying sunshine wherever
he went. Speaking of the matter he
said : "I am alone in the world. My
wants are few and simple. To hoard
up money does me no good. I've known
what it is to walk the streets of a
strange town hungry and without shel
ter. I made up my mind long ago that
if ever luck came my way , I'd share it
with the chaps in hard luck. " Jimmy
Feiloy didn't give his money to a li
brary. He probably was never in one.
It might puzzle him to know the mean
ing of the word philanthropist. Yet it
is doubtful if Andrew Carnegie ever
got as much heart warmth out of any
of his millions as did Jimmie Feiley out
of his $ , " 00. His was the direct touch
and for him was the "God bless you. "
All the philanthropists are not million'
Andrew Carnegie once looked upon
the accumulation of wealth as the most
desirable thing In life. He did lay up
riches. He put away more dollars than
any other one man living. But he
wasn't successful , for after he had
piled up all that money he heard a
voice in his heart saying : "To die rich ,
with so many opportunities for doing
good open , is to die disgraced , " and he
at once began his philanthropic work
and gave away millions. Is he success
ful ? The world lauds him , and the
applause is mingled with curses. Some
say that an honest due to labor would
have prevented the amassing of this
great fortune. Others assert that the
world needs more personal kindness ,
more heart charity , more opportunities
for men and women to help them
selves , and not so many libraries. And
so the question , "Is Carnegie success
ful ? " remains. George M. Pullman
built up a great fortune. He helped
many a man to rise from obscurity to
fame. He failed to so train his sons
that they would become good citizens.
One of them died the other day. At 25
he had seen more of life and tasted
more of hel ! than reaches most men at
75. Pullman was not successful. John
D. Rockefeller amassed millions , and
aroused the hatred of the workers of
a nation. lie has given away fortune
after fortune. He is charitable and
kin.l where his sympathies are aroused.
He abused the constitution that nature
gave him till it resented the insult ,
and , while he has the money to buy the
most costly and delicious viands , he
feeds on the plainest food. He is his
stomach's slave. How much success
can li" found in this man's life ? The
other day the poor authorities in New
York stumbled into a squalid room and
found a sick man and three little chil
dren. There was a lire in the stove
and fooJ on the table. * That was
enough to eat , such as it was , and evi
dences of somebody's loving care. And
that somebody came in while the visit
ors were there. That somebody had a
brave face , though a pinched one. and
a stout heart beat under a ragged
dress. Somebody's head was just a
little higher than the table. The bread
winner of that little home was a girl
under 10. She had been mother for
years , and mother and father for
weeks. She sold papers on a corner.
She ran errands and somehow God ,
knows how she wrested from the
world of business enough pennies to
keep life In five hunian beings. A
sense of duty was born in her. She
was face to face with a condition and
she did her best.
And there you get very close to the
true meaning of "success. " She did
her best. She used the brain and the
body that nature had given her. She
was unselfish. She shouldered the bur
dens that came her way and bore them
without complaint. She did her best.
All tlie human beings who are putting
into life the best that is in them are
striving for and finding some success ,
and there are no statistics of failure or
accomplishment. Perhaps It is best
that it should be that way.
To Sterilize a Needle.
In discoursing to a woman's club re
cently a physician , dwelling upon how
to treat children's bruises , told of a
simple method to sterilize a needle that
was to bo used to pick out a splinter
or other foreign substance often jab
bed into small boys' hands through ,
their reckless falling. If the needle is
passed through an alcohol flame or
boiling water , and used without touch
ing the poiit with the fingers it is safe.
The average mother thinks if she uses
a needle instead of a pin she has con
ceded all that is required of her , but
the surgeon , keen to the dangers of
germ contamination , knows that a step
further is necessary. The lecturer also
spoke of the value in the mother's med
icine-chest of a little gutta-percha tis
sue such as every one who has had a
tooth filled will recognize. This will
be found to be of great service in cov
ering any moist dressing of wounds , as
it protects the clothing from the wet
and also retains the moisture which it
is needed to preserve in the dressing.

F1JS.U . NO FAULT
CORONER'S JURY AT FILLEY JUS-
Exonerate Man Who Shot The Father !
Y < imi Smith Does Not limme Slayer
73 lief in the Town That Dead JJo >
Wan fttool IMgeou.
Beatrice , Neb. , March 18. Tb
; own of Filley lias not seen such
: rowds since its incorporation as
illed its streets today soon after the
tilling of young Williard Smith be-
: ame known , which was a rapid pro-
: ess. When .Coroner Walden arrived
ihere today his first thought was to
dnd a place : n which to hold an in
vestigation which wculd accommo-
late the largest portion of the as
sembled crowdf Several witnesses
were examined , among them Frank
Shadley , who did the shooting.
Practically nothing new was devel
At 8 o'clock the investiga
tion was resumed and was concluded
about ] o'clock. The coroner's jury
returned a verdict to the effect that
Shadley shot and killed youug Smith
without felonious intent , and that
the act was justifiable. The verdict
meets with the approval of everyone ,
Including the father of the young
nan , who speaks in the highest
terms of Shadley. Mr. Smith says he
lays the blame for the tragedy at the
doors of his son's companions , many
of them older than he , and that it
was bis love for gambling ? which
caused the troulbe. He says that he
has repeatedly remonstrated with
him for his wayward ways and the
class of his companions , but that
these companions had a greater in
fluence over him than be bad.
The opinion is almost unanimous
in Filley that young Smith was the
actor for older heads. Both Llew
elyn , upon whom the demand for
money was made , and Shadley say
that had they known who they were
confronting at the church doors they
would have let him go undisturbed.
Shadley at first had hold of Smith'3
arm , jumping out from his hiding
place and grasping his arm as soon
as Smith reached out and picked up
the money sack. Shadley called on
him to surrender , but instead Smith
struggled from Shadley's grasp and
jumped for the door. He was com
manded a second time to stop before
he was shot.
Subpoenas were issued for two
young men who drove into Filley yes
terday afternoon from Crab Orchard ,
and who were met at the livery
stable by young Smith , but they did
not appear until after the investiga
tion had'concluded. It was appar
ently believed that the two were
evading the officials and the officers
had decided not to delay longer and
let tlie county attorney prosecute the
case. The fact that these two men
were not seen after arriving in Filley
until 4 o'clock this morning , when
they took a team from the livery
stable and drove away caused them ,
to be placed in suspicion.
The tullet which killed Smith wag
from a 38-caliber revolver. It entered
his back elbow the shoulder blade
&nd penetrated the heart.
Cracksmen at Donn'-brojj.
St. Paul , Neb. , March 18. M. 0.
Peterson's jewelry store at Danne- .
brog was burglarized last night. The
safe was blown open and all the con
tents , valued at about $60 , taken.
The crime was committed at about
2:15 : a. m. , the force of the explosion
having stopped the large jeweler'a1
clock at that time. A number of
citizens heard the report but sus
pected nothing wrong and no alarm
was given until daylight.
A message has teen received from
Grand Island that three suspects arq
under arrest there and Sheriff Hani
sen leaves for that place tonight.
Coming just at this time the rob
bery recalls a similar crime commit
ted at Boelus , only a few miles from
Dannebrog , five years ago , when the
Howard bank safe was cracked and
$1,300 stolen. Governor Savage re
sently liberated one of these robbers ,
Otto Warwick , who had served less
than half of his term of eight years.
Grand Island , Neb. , March 18.
Three men supposed crooks , giving
their names as John Riley , Georps
Lytle and Charles Adams , were ar
rested here at noon today on a mes
sage received from Dannebrog , ad
vising the pi-lice to look for men ol
a given description and hold them
for having robbed the jewelry store
safe and taking $600 in jewelry and
some cash. The men answered the
dscription exactly and will be taken
back to Howard county for trial.
The same men are said to be wanted

"You may be sure the impressions
I received will be lasting. "
Prince Henry , who looked to be
thoroughly rested , wore a dark blue
yachting suit with the Kiel yacht
club buttons. Before disembarking
from the Deutschland Prince Henry
again thanked Captain Albers for
the comfort and kindness he had ex

paid a high compliment to the ship
