NEW YoEKjfAugust 20 1 a. m.
Considerable excitement has recently
prevailed in the pork market in New
York and Chicago. Tharo has been
an advance of § 2 within a week. Al
though Keane's name has been mentioned -
tioned in the < Jorner , itrappeara on in-
vustfgtion ihit Armour , of Chicago ,
member of the firm of Armour & Co. ,
of this city , is the leading spirit in
the matter. According to a state
ment received from Chicago Wednee-
day evening , the stock of parkin Chicago
cage is 123,000 harrelsagain tl73,00i" >

for the sanio period-last year. The
bulk of thm is controlled by Armour ,
who is making the thing interesting
for operators on the wrong s'deof the
market. Ho has been manipulating
the market for months , and has been
encouraged , it is uaid , by the large
lines of short interest which were be-
iug recklessly put oat for feeling mo--
lives by his operators to-day. Pork
for August deli very , .which was quoted
a short time ago at § 14 00 , is. held at
§ 17.00 , both here and in Chicago. The
objective point Is aa'.d to be § 20.00
per barrel and , if accomplished , there
will be a numb'or of lama duck * , as
this month's stock is said to have been
largely oversold. Some interesting
developments arc predicted before the
end of this month.The present
speculation includes miats , and iaeaid

AN TJMVRITTEJf LEAF IN CONNECTION
W1T1I COUNT SCaOUVALOFF , THE IM
Chtojo Tcl raph.
Those who have traced the career of
that able diplomatist , Count Schouva-
loff , the late Russian ambassador at
tha court of St. Jamesj will remem
ber that at one time ha- filled a high
position in the imperial detective po
lice. In that post ho had , at certain
periods of the year , large sums grant
ed him from the imperial treasurer with
which to pay the secret and other po
lice under his orders. , These draft * ,
when received , he was in the habit cf
. taking to the famous banker , Baron
Stieglitz , to be cashed , Upon one of
these occasions he had received the
regular draft , the amount being 240-
000 roubles , which aum , was to be dis
bursed amoni ; his men in various
amounts. As the amounts to be paid
4 i always varied much it was necessary
to obtain the payment of the draft In
iv notes , both large and small amounts.
To collect the required amountt the
banker requested the count to call In
a short period , when the money-would
be sorted and ready for3 his receipt.
On this particular occasion it was
agreed that Count Schcuvaloff should
call at or shortly before 2 o'clock Jn
the afternoon. These visits
chief of the detective police to the
ich banker'a had long been regarded
by the light fingered brethren of St.
Petersburg with eyes of envy , ag it
was well known to them that on these
visits large sums of money changed

accomplice and they determined to
now make aboldetrokeforthomoney.
Shortly before thn appointed time of
the transfer of the money the bank
door * opaned and in walked a gentle ; ,
man , to all appearance Count Schouv-
aluff wearing the official uniform , in
walk , manner and voice the exact
counterpart of the chief of the police.
The required notes had been ciroful-
ly counted 'and arranged , and directly
on anpliqstib i of the upi-osed"Count

with ibe utmost confidence and the
receipt tendered by the pseudo count. "
THe bank clerk who attended him" to
the door , and handed to hii official
custody the precious package , saw a
carriage in every point tbo counter
part of the well known officiil eqtfp-
age. The servant , the horses , even
the fittings were well known to htm as
th'oio of tbo chief of police , and not
cne iota of suspicion entered the head
of the bank authorities , as , with a
graceful bow , the supposed august
pereonape took his departure.
Some twenty minutes after the de
parture of the supposed official the
bank doort again swung open , but this
time to admit the real Count Schouv-

cashier to demand the mouoy for' the

robbed , ton , and his acute intellect
told him that not a moment was to be
lust. AsDuming a thoughtful attitude
for afow , seconds ho replied , in a qui
et and composed manner , "Ah ! yes !
how thoughtful of me , I quite forgot
it , " and with some short apologies ho
left the bank. Among the Russian
police , both public and private , it is a
standing order to note every movement
of the chief of the department in or
der that should ho be required , he can
at any moment be found.
Leaving the bank , Count Schouva-
loff accosted the first of his men , and
inquired , "Did you see me pass this
way half an hour ao ? " The mm ,
who had , like the banker and clerks ,
been deceived by the pseudo Count ,
replied atronce , "Yes , you left the
bank and drove to the right. A second
end man gave further bid , and so a
third , and fourth , until at last the
Count learned that ho ( in duplicate )

accosted the landlord with some ordi
nary questions of the day , and , while
thus engaged , one of the waiters en
tered , and started a lust to see the
count talking to his master. "Why
do you start ? " asked Count Schouva-
lofi" The waiter replied , "I have only

Schouvaloff had now the required
information , and he at once entered
the apartment indicated by the wait
er , and was brought face to face with
his duplicate , who with his friend
were just refreshing themselves prior
to a journey to lauds far distant. On
the side-table was a black ba2 con
taining the nicely-sorted notes and the
wardrobes of these would-be officials.
The count saluted his double with a
hearty welcome , allowed him to finish
the meal which he had so ably earned ,
and then both ho and his friend were
provided at government expensa with
tourist tickets to Siberia. Their

A Fakir's Training.
K. Y. Times.
The physiological training of the
Hindu fakir for his profession is some
thing worth study. He begins by ab
stention from food during the day and
taking a very reduced quantity at
niuht. Certain articles are prohibi
ted ; among them are salt , fish and
meat , oil and wino , mustard , onions ,
garlic and turnips. He must refrain
from spices , from all acids and acid
preparations , and from all pungent ar
ticles except ginger. ELis carbona
ceous food is limited to rice and
wheat , his nitrogoneoua to milk and
melted butter ( gbrta ) , and a to the
carbon hydraton , honey and sugar are
alone admissible. There are two or
three articles familiar to Europeans
only by their Bengal iiamoi which he
is permitted to use , but they arc com
posed ot the preceding ingredients in
various proportions. Water is posi
tively prohibited ; but some sects al
low the devotee to drink sparingly of
alcoholic beverages. Ho must next
loam to live underground , and for
this purpose ho digs a subterranean
cavern ( the gublia ) , in which he passes
most of his time. The temperature
must bo warm and perfectly even and
the cavern is entered only by a hole ,
which cm bo closed with a stone. It
is a living sepulture. Indeed the
essentials of the mndo of life
are the complete occlusion of free oxy
gen , impenetrable darkness , and an
unbroken silence. Ho lies upon
pallet of cotton or wool something
warm and soft at the bottom of this
subterranean cell , and repeats from
day to day the mystic word "Om , '
the Hindu name of the great abstrac
tion of universal life a being mere
twjcendentil than that of Hegel.
Thedovoteo takes occasional walks ,
but is very slow in his movements , seas
as to leasen the rapidity of the respira
tion. He repeats his "Um" sometimes
10,000 times a day , and has other
tyllable * , among whieh are "Bam , "
"Ham " "Lam " " " " "
, , "Ram , "Soham ,
"Yam , " of which be performs endless
aeries of repetitions , arranging them
in every order of which they are sus
ceptible , and rigidly following a pre
scribed order for a given number ol
repetitions. Ho , trains himself to sit
squatted for hours together In a cer
tain peculiar attitude ( thesiddhasana
which consists in doubling the left le ;
under the body , o as to rest upon thi
heel of the left foot , while tha righ
leg is extended forward. In .this po
sition.-with the right arm advanced
he holds the big toe of the right fee
in his rlghThand , and with the lef
arm flexed under the body , crasps th
big toe of the left joeL This brings
tKe lower"par .6f "the face To rest upoi

* and difficult-attitude the fakir sita for

US himself to take a deep inspiration
and expel it _ slowly tiking 12 seconds
ends to breatbo in and 24 to breathe
out the cubic feet of atmosphere that
he lungs can contain. Besides these
exercises his tongue has to be cut 24
imc ! , so as to never all the ligatures
one by one , and enable him to flex it
> ackward and close 'the throat with
ts tip. This extraordinary dia-
ipline is steadily prosecuted for
ears , and at length the fakir tries his
irst experiment whh feigning death ,
llowing himself to bo shut up in his
ubterranean cell and sealed therein
with every precaution , generally for n ,
vuok or two at first , thuu for a month

with thu circulation of the blood ap-

eoover himself from this condition of
uepended animation ; but he cau be
ecovered by proper manipulation ,
which commences in pouring hot
water over the shriveled body , stiff
nd rigid as a corpse , for some min
utes. As the bathing in hot water
ontinuH- , the arms and legs gradually
elax from thejr rigor. A "hot cake is

lead , and tv > e plugs ( rnado of cotton
oaked in wax ) arc removed from the
nostrils and ears. The next steps it

ill this time engaged in rubbing the
imbs are to pty open the rigid j.iws
and restore the tongue to its normal
losition ; then to rub the eyelids with
melted butter until they can be un-
iloaed , revealing the glazed and mo-
ionlcss eyeball. Finally , the hot cake
on the tep cf the head is renewed.

CA0GHT BY THE CAMERA.
HOW A SUSPECTING AND SC11ACQY WIFE
WATCHED FOB HER HUSBAND IK A
SUN I'lCTUKE AND CAUGHT HIM
She was a little womanfierce-faced ,
cragcy as the tagged edge of a circu-
ar saw , and the white lawn dress and
white chip hat sha had on looked as if
liey had got on the wrong woman in
shufllj between herself and eomo-
> ody who weighed 200 pounds more
: an she weighed. She had been up
o the door of the Camera Obacura
milding oar'y in the day , but the
tructure was not yet finished , and
George McManu * told her to come
round in the afternoon , when the
oof of the building would ba iu place.
5ho came back at 4 o'clock , appar-
utly more determined than ex or to
dt in and BOO thu show. The build
ig was now ready , and as she pulled
ut a yellow pocket book she aekcd :
"How much does it take to cet iiil"
"Ten cents , " answered Mr. Mc-
"And how much to stay in J"
"You cm stay in as long a * you
ke , " said themsnaser , "and it won't
ot you a cent more. "
"Well , I want to stay In till closin1
p time , and I want you to keep that
ecticai of stovo-pipo pointed at one
> lace. You don't need no lecturer to *
how mo the beauties and high art of
lie thing. I know my business- , and
vhila I'm after something it s got to
o some sliik running to get away. "
"You can point the camera wherever
ou please , " was the reply.
The woman put down ten cents and
went in. Jimmio Hannerty was iu-
ido and began turning the camera
round. The woman looked In , bat
pparently took no interest in the pic-
uri3 ! until a spot on Washington
treet was reached.
"Now go slow , " she said , "you're
; ettinc near home. "
Jimmy turned the camera very
"Hold on , " she yelled , "now you've
truck it. You can le.t the sun shine
n this particular spot and go over to
ho saloon corner and sit under the
wniug for awhile. I'll run things ;
ndil there's anything to pay I've got
he stack of money to do it with. "
The yount : man said ho could wait
until the visitors got tired , and then
ho told her story :
"You sec that woman in that win-
iow , " pointing to a lady sitting at an
open window in a Washington avenue
louse. "Well , she's red-headed ,
quint-eyed , lop-shouldered and has
jm a strawberry mark on her nose ,
and do you think she's nearly aa hand-
iprae as ma 1 " * F- V'
The young mifftaiirot think it
iafo to award the apple to the Helen
n the sun picture on the table before
"Neither do I , " continued the
small and scraggy woman , "But I've
jot a husband that doesn't know
) eauty even when ho rubs his nose
sganiBt it , and hasn't an eye in his
leid that I'd give a two-cent piece for
if I was buying eyes for an artist. He
wsses by here from work evrry day
Between 5 and G o'clock , and I hoar
hat he flirts with that red-headed
leart-breaker across the street. I'm
going to wait here and see for myself ,
and if I catch him there won't bo doc
; era enough in town to put his pieces
jogether after I get him home. "
The woman kept her eyes fastened
on the spot for some minutes , but
other persons coming obl'ged the
young man in charge to shift the
jatnera. Large crowds kept coming
in and going out until nfter 5 o'clock ,
but the scraggy little womanremained.
When she was alone with the lecturer
she asked that the manager be called
in and bought out the show for the
rest of the afternoon. From 6:05 :
o'clock until nearly G the camera reflected
flected the picture'of the Washington
avenue house with the woman at the
window. The anxious little wife , the
lecturer and Mr. Me Man us kept their
eyes fastened on the picture.
"I'll bet that's him , " said George.as
a well dressed and gentlemanly ap-
pearingman "walked along the pave
"Yes , you bet that's him , " said the
woman , becoming intensely interested
in the picture.
"Look Ihere , he lifts his hat , " eaid
"And bows and smiles , " added the
"And that carroty-haired attraction
in the window smiled as if she'd eaten
something that soured on her stomach
ach " continuedthe . * - - "
, , woman."Open
the door. Let me confront him in his
guilt , and then stuff cotton in your
ears if you're anywhere around when
we get home. "
TliP little woman broke for the door
and went down the stairs like a barrel
of flour with its fastest lej-a on.
George and Jimmy followed the man
up the street with the camera. The
sun-picture reflected him quietly
promenading the avenue for about a
half a block ; then ho turned around ,
and when he suddenly turned bick
his head again , his pace quickened.
There was a c r ahead and he run for
it. Following him was a small scrag-
py woman iu white. She waved her
hand at the fleeing man , nni ehe
ehouted , but when he entered the
street car and the vehicle passed from
si ht , ahe turned back , and the hst
seen of her ehe was talking to a taH _
poficeman cm the corner , and was *
pointing after the car as if she wanted
the officer to arrest the driver or fire
a shot or two after the fugitive hus

One day recently , as one of our

he was accosted by an individual -iritl
a decidedly careworn expression , who
begged that ho would assist him to
get something to eat. As the man
looked like a worthy object of charity

The Display . of Fireworks
Magnificent , But Decided
Special Oiepitch to Tlie B < c.
Cuicioo , August 19 , 4 p. m. The
Knights Templar and other visitors
are rapidly leaving the city to-day by
every train. Railroads find it impos-
sib'e to accommodate the crowds.
Still there are many remainingandthe
city continues full of strangers. It is
cool nnd pleasant to-day. Such weather
yesterday would have been a great
boon for the thousands attending the
prize drill. The encampment is still
intact , but will no doubt be nearly de
serted before night. The display of
fireworks lait night was a very fine one
thouch at too late an hour. Hundreds
of thousands of people were kept
standing on the lake front and ave
nues until after 3 a. m. , nnd then
many were obliged to walk to their
homes in many instances three or four
miles. The Grand Encimpmont has
been in session behind closed doors
all the forenoon and h now electing
officers. Much opposition was made
to holding another triennial conclave
on such a magnificent scale. But it was
finally decided to hold one in San
Fr.incisco in 1883 , Templars from Cal
ifornia guaranteeing that it should not
cost any Sir Knight over 820 for the
round trip. V. G. Eenj. Dean , of
Boston , was chosen grand master.
