A cuitious r-Asi : .
Saturday Sheriff Melick received a
note fioin Campbell & Young , attorneys'
at Harper ( Kan. ) enclosing a letter which
they said had been picked up in the
Streets of that town. It was addressed ,
to Noali Davidson , at Harper , and was
written in Lincoln , November 13,1880 ,
on an Arlington hotel nqto head. The
writer , who signed hi'.uscli James
Younger \ * ! ; ; Davidson about his
ailveiitviTcs since seeing him , referred to
borne mysterious shooting case for which
ho was arrested last spring and sent to
jail to await trial. He was in the lockup
two weeks , when one night lie Dover-
powered the keeper and escaped and
came to Lincoln , where ho found a job
us night clerk at the Arlington. The let
ter was turned over to Ollicer Fowler ,
who yesterday found Younger at work
in the kitchen at the Tremont. When ar
raigned before Judge Parker ho ad
mitted having written tiio letter , but
claimed that it was all bravado. Young
er said that last summer ho and
a pal named Harry G.Iilair wore arrested
nt David City ( Nob. ) for "holding up" a
man , but were discharged when the dis
trict court mot. Sheriff Molick is
inclined to think that they broke jail , and
hns wired to David City for particulars.
The police believe that Hoyce , the chap
arrested hero last December while trying
to burglari'/o a hardware store on O
street , and Youngor's pal liluir , arc ono
and the same person. When Uoyeo was
caught ho had an express receipt in his

llio name of Charles G. lioycu was for
use in Lincoln only ,

Now York Suns The weird musician
known in legend and poem as the Pied
Piper of Hamcliu , who , by the seductive
strains of his llute , lured all the rats in a
little German town to destruction , would
have , if ho wore alive to-day , a woi thy
rival in the very substantial and proud-
looking gentleman known as Hairy Jen
nings , Ills proud bearing may bo duo to
the consciousness that ho is the boss rat
catcher of America , Like nineteen of his
Hehraiu townsmen in the clothing tr.ido
in Chathanv street , ho calls himself "the
original. " Ao was born in London about
iifty-gve years ago , and like other distin
guished Londoners , lie has no tno for
the letter II when his feelings prompt
him to allude to sbeol. If Mr Jennings
were in business in London he would
wear a bolt with pictures of rats on it ,
but hero there Is no badge to distinguish
A Sun young man recently visited Mr
Jennings' place in Centre street. It is a
brick building , with iron bars and wire
iH'ttiug before door.s and \\inilo\vs. The
interior is Tilled with tiers of cage- * , con
taining small animals and birds of many
kinds that invariably welcome strangers
with noih.y nnaiiimitv monkeys i-liattor-
ing , parrots screeching , dogs barking
and yelpiti" ; , roosters crowing , and cana
Mr. Jennings laid particular stress
upon the declaration that h was a prao-
jical ratcatcher. He denied that lie wild
in me hYiblt oj , charming the rats by the
power of his steel-gray eyes. Ho said it
was utterly untrue that ho ever enticed
rats out ol their holes by peculiar calls or
whistles and then clubbed them to death.
He doubted the story of the Pied Piper ,
and was willing to wager that ho could
kill more rats by his practical methods
in a day tl..in the Pied Piper could have
whistled to death in a week.
"There arc , " said Mr. Jennings ,
"seventy places hotyls and private
residences in 'this city that I keep
clear of rats , I have several men ,
thirty ratters of all breeds , and twelve
white ferrets to help mo. None of the
young men who help mo are afraid to
luuidlo a rat , no matter how fierce and
and big it may be. As for mo you can
sec for ' Yourself just iiow much 1 fear
thorn.Vhercupou _ Mr. Jennings open
ed the lid of a tin box , ran his hand
through the animated slate colored mass
and scooped up and turned over a Score
lively big fellows. He took ono of them
and plr.ci'd it under his shirt next to his
bosom. Ho returned it to the box after
it had nestled there a minute or two , and
"Rat catching is done mostly at night.
The ferrets run the rats out of tliejr I'1 ' :
lind the terriers catch id kill them.
They sire sometihies cornered by the fer
rets , which then make short work of
them. The ferrets are trained to return
to me , and will come at call , like a dog.
We use many steel traps , and in a place
where the r.its arc very numerous , myself
and my men catch them with tongs or
with our hands. Wo sometimes drive
them out of their holes with an obnoxious
smoke into valve trans through which
they drr > p into a bug
All -my best ratters are imported. I
have six English bull tuiriors that could
not be bought for less than SOO. Here , "
leading out two cream colored dogs from
a kennel on one side of. the rooni. "ars
two of the handsomest animals ever
brought to this country. Did you ever
see liner eyes , more beautiful limbs , and
such a color ? They arc English tciriers
that it would take a pile of money to
' "What do I got for my work ? Well , it
depends upon the place 1 keep free of
rats and mice. I charge from $100 to
? 200 a year for regular customers.
Among tno hotels that employ mo are the
Windsor , Murray Hill. B-.cvoort , West
minster , Victoria , Brunswick , Con
tinental , Metropolitan , St. James , Gilsoy
House , and the Albemarle. "
Mr. Jennings is dcshous of getting 200
wild and ferocious rats to put in an im
mense cage for exhibition at the poultry
show .at Madifon Square Garden. lie
and German , Irish , and American assist
ants will enter the cage and prove to the
public that r.xts are harmless when fear
lessly handled , lie is willing to give 10
cents for each big and wicked rat brought
to him , He does iiot believe that any of
the international quartet , including him
self , will be bitten by the rats.
" 1 cannot tell you how many times I
have felt the tectli of dogs and rats , " Mr.
Jennings said , "but I can toll yon that I
have never once bad a thought of hydro
phobia after being bitten. I believe the
bite of a rat is in no way dangerous to
those accustomed to hmilling raU. i
have picked up as many as sixty lats an
hour at tiio car stables without receiving
a scratch. How many rats have I caught
with my own hands ? Millions , i should
say. Are you going ? Well , good day.
Don't ' forget to como up to the Garden
and see mo enter the cage with my col
lection of rats. It will lie the lirst o\hi-
tion of its kind in this or any other

Caused l > y the Kcmnrlcnhlo Act Ing of
Miss Vincent linsl livening.
For ninny years back Clara Morris has
boon indlssolubly connected with plays
of the emotional order. Her name has
been especially identified with "Miss
Multon. " In this she is undoubtedly in
many respects without a peer. Strange
though It may seem , Miss Morris lacks
the intensity of facial expression witli
which Mi s Vincent is gifted. Every
feature , especially the eyes , seems to be
under perfect control. And , indeed , so
well are the latter controlled that they
not only slmulMc weeping but How with
tears. Last night teais weie found also
in the audience falling from oyps
of hardened men who had
wept but little since childhood. No
greater emotional aetress , since Clara
Morris' appearance here , has played in
Omaha. I'lus strength is maintained to
the climax when the heroine's realistic
death scene ratios a thrill in the audi-
( net * . Mr Vineeiit. Mr Bernard , Mr.
Hobyns and MUs Mitchell rendered a
very satisfactory support , although H was
the lit t appearance of the hist mentioned
in her trying role. The house was tilled ,
and tin1 number of ladies wlto o handker
chiefs were not u i-d to staunoh the llow
ol tears could bo counted on one's lingers.
Thi wiling of the stage , iu itself \\asa
gem , and will be a revelation to the audi
ence to-night , when the piece will be
produced for the last time.
