Seldom If over before In the his
tory of the federation has one of its
conventions attracted such wide
spread attention as will center in
the pioccedlngs of the coming week.
For the llrst tlmo In nearly a decade
there promises to bo a splrlto.l contest -
test for the presidency. Samuel
Gompors , who has been at the head
of the organization for many years ,
has of late aroused a feeling of some
antagonism among a certain element
of the members , notably the United
Mine Workers , who charge Gompors
with having given thorn but half
hearted support In the recent great
strike In the anthracite region of
Pennsylvania. President John Mlt-
chclll of the Mlno Workers , while
refusing to stand for the presidency
of the federation himself , Is under
stood to favor the candidacy of
James Duncan , secretary of the
Granite Cutters' union and first vice
president of the federation. Duncan
also has the support of D. J. O'Keofo ,
president of the Longshoremen's
union , and other prominent leaders ,
and from all indications ho will bo
able to put up a strong fight against
Gompors oven If ho does not accom
plish his overthrow.

Perhaps the llrst Confederate ImnU
raided by Union soldiers was one at
ClmrloMon , Va. , as Milroy was making
his way up the Shonuiuloah valley.
"Humming" was in its infancy then ,
but a dozen of the follows found thorn-

a sntldtm attack on the town at day
light and then dashed In and made for
the bank. They broke In the door with

safe and something Hue ? 000,000 was
carried away as they retreated.
A day later they bundled up $100,000 ,
strapped It on the back of an old lame
mule and hi nil a farmer to deliver the
"wealth" to General Milroy In inn-son.
Accompanying the money was a note ,
which advised the general to bribe the
Confederates to keep ahead of him and
do no fighting. As his military maneu

and his reputation was under a cloud ,
It was a hard shot nt him. The story
Rot to Washington and was commented
on by President Lincoln , and It has
been asserted that the president's lev

Mr. Brown's enemies say that there
Is nothing else In the world he enjoys
so much as finding fault and putting
other people In the wrong. When en
gaged In this pleasing occupation , ho
loses all hold on a sense of humor ,
which Is none too keen at other times.
Not long ago.he and his wife were
taking a trip through the White moun
tains , and at one place they were to bo
called at half past 5 In the morning to
take an early train. Mr. Brown wak
ened first and after a glance ut his
watch fell back on his pillow with a
groan that frightened his wife out of
her slumbers.
"Hero It Is on the tick of half past

to his wife's troubled questions , "nnd
If they don't call us within live min
utes wo shan't have time enough to
get dressed and cat breakfast But It's

The electrical fishes do not belong to
any one class or group some arc found
In fresh water , while others Inhabit the
sea. They possess two distinct types
of electrical organs. One closely relates
In structure to muscle , as found In the
torpedo , gymnotus and skate , while the
other presents more of the characters
of the structure of a secreting gland ,
ns Illustrated by the electrical organ
of the thunderflsh. Both types are
built upon a vast number of micro
scopical elements , each of which is
supplied with a nerve fiber. These
nerve fibers come from largo nerves
that originate In the nerve centers ,
brain or spinal cord , and In these cen
ters are found special largo nerve cells ,
with which the nerve libers of the
electric organs are connected and from
which they spring. Yet the electricity
IB generated In the electric organ Itself.
In these animals there arc specialized
organs for the production of electricity
on an economical basis far surpassing
anything yet contrived by man. Amer
