Not In Contempt.
The contempt case of Frank Lnnor
was heard in chambers yesterday by
Judge Car. on. Several witnesses were
examined in behalf of the state when it
WIIH discovered that the clerk of the
court in drawing up the decree had
neglected to state what the defendant
\ya enjoined from doing. Attorney
Sims in behalf of the stale then moved
for a dismissal , which thocourtgranted.
The clerical error was an oversight on
the part of the clerk in making out the
decree of the court , but it was just what
was needed to let out the defendant.

A Summer Fire.
A small llro at John Davis' place on
Lincoln avenue , called out the lire de
partment yesterday morning at about 7
o'clock. The lire started from n gaso
line stove , but was put out before the
arrival of the department. The boys
wore not on band as quickly as usual , as
the nearest box was situated on Broad
way and it took some time to reach it.
This angered the usually porono lady
of the house , and when tlip rather

poked inside the door she saluted him

The citizens on Lincoln avenue are
complaining because they have not ade

plugs within Iwo blocks nnd a two-inch

TIIIW SOAP TJ1K OKVSKKS.
I3\pcrlmcnts Showing How Goynern
May bn Made to Spout.
A correspondent of the Pioneer
Press at Mammoth , Hot Springs , "Wyo. .
wiys there booms to bo a prevailing no
tion that if a geyser is choked up with
soap it will cause an eruption. Whether
this notion is correct on not , it is caub-
ing considerable Iroublo , brought about
by people who insist on trying the ex
periment. Inquiries nro made as to
what variety , quantity or quality ol
boap will accomplish tlio desired robult.
Doubtless those inquiries are made in
the interests of some enterprising soati
manufaclurer , who sees a fortune in
a soap which will invuriubly produce
an eruption when thrown into n goysor.
Tlio otToct of this result as an
advertisement can bo imagined. Auto
graph recommendations of actresses ,
primn donnas and lilcrateurs would be
greatly dit-countcd. Such a faoap would
also greatly increase the attractions ol
Yollowbtono park , for by ils use the
goybors could bo kept in constant action
during the lourisl season , by being por-
milled an absolulo rcsl during Iho olhoi
eight months. In nn interview with
Robert Law on the result of his experi
ment upon the Beohlvo geyser , ho said
that within a very few minutes aftoi
applying Iho soap persuader Iho goysoi
began lo foam , nnd soon poured forlli
ils walers with tremendous force. He
admitted , how-over , thai ho had nc
knowledge of Iho longlh of lime whicli
had elapsed since the previous eruption ,
nor could ho find nnyoody who know
anything about It. Neither had
ho any idea how long tvftor
ward ho could have success
fully repeated the experiment , nor dti
anyone else poem to bo able to help bin
in this respect. Mr. Law said tlmt on i
certain day the shaft of tlio Beehivi
had been charged with soap by some one
about 8 a. m. According to record th <
geyser should have erupted about 10 a
m. , the eruptions occurring every six
hours. , As he was passing with a party
of gentlemen they noticed the oilor of
coal , and upon htirring up Iho contontb
of the cave with their canes , the con
tents began to olYorveseo violently , and
they settled back out of reach. No
eruption took pla"o until I p. m. They
then pushed to the Kpongo gojvcr and
found that they could materially abridge
the period bot\\ ecu eruptions by stirring
the water actively. Hut the quantity
of water overflowed in such cases was
much less than when the geyser took itn

in our Alpon stocks as far down into the
boiling caldron as wo could. Imme
diately the valor began to effervesce.
\Vo felt as if home sharped toothed viper
had seined upon our canes and was try
ing to wrest them ftoin us. In a few
seconds the whole caldron was a seeth
ing mass of foam , and wo ran from the
terraces as fast as wo could , and with
barely time to escape the surging waves
that wwept over the walls and flowed
ever a Moor , glowing in all the golden
glory of the rainbows. It must be borne
in mind Hint another such eruption
could not bo procured for at leabt half
an hour ; jind that , had wo watched pi-
tlentlyilo'n minutes longer , the normal
eruption would have been far grander.
The explanation of this phenomenon is
that when a goybor is nearly ripe for
an eruption the insertion of any cold
substance releases moro rapidly the ac
cumulating superheated gases , and
thereby procures a premature eruption
of much less magnitude than Iho nor
mal eruption would othorwibO have been.
On another occasion I was at the Mam
moth geyser with two other gentlemen.
Tlio crater was full and .seemingly ripe
tor ai > eruption. In order to stimulate
lier wo tried the Alpcn stock , and suc-
cci'ded in setting the. pot soothing with
great violence , and cleared the tor
i-aces as fast as wo could in order to
cbcapo the hcalding dolugo. To our
disgust wo found that after a , few
puffs of while foam she sank down two
feet , and wo were punished by having
to wait two hours for her lo prime up
for a genuine upheaval. The result of
my repatcd and careful observation is
thai by llio use of any cold bubslanco
Ihrubt in when a geyser is nearly duo
you may have a feeble eruption. If too
long before duo you may materially re
tard the eruption by relieving the in
tense pressure , but if applied when ripe
it has no effect ono way or the other.
Dr. Campbell , at Livingstone , expressed -
pressed the opinion that the enactment
of a law to prohibit soaping a
geyser was an unnecessary inter
ference with a simple and harmlcbs
act , and the punishment of it an act of
tyranny , lie was surprised on being
informed that the law prohibiting any
one from tbro.ving anything into any of
the goybors or chemical baiins was en
acted and rigidly enforced by line nnd
imprisonment long before the military
supervision begun. I often found that
ladies were subjected to much inconvenience -
vonionco on the Seventh Terrace pla
teau at Mammoth Hot Springs , from
the fact that Great Bath lake had be
come a favorite bathing resort for gen
tlemen. The superintendent , Captain
M. Harris , issued an order that bathing
could not bo indulged in until after 6
p. m. The motive that has animated
tlio issuing of any restraining order has
always boon either to protect Iho parker
or the visitors. O. L. HKXDKUSOX.
A BRAVE GIRL.
A Telegraph Operator In an KiiHtern
Pillsburg Dispatch : Some days ago
a Dispatch reporter had occasion to use
a telegraph line in sending a report to
the paper. It was long after midnight ,
and the nearest Western Union line
was a good mile and a half from the
town in which ho was located. The tel
egraph otllco was found to bo in a rail
road block station , Bitimied in ono of
the loneliest and bleakest parts of the
country through which the road passed.
No dwelling hou-es were within calling
distance , nnd the entire surroundings
were of the most uninviting and for
bidding kind. The otllco itbolf was but
a small frame building , utterly devoid
of any means of defense from intruders ,
and tlio country round about wa.s in
fested with tramps.
The reporter rapped at the door , and
receiving no answer , Knocked again ,
with the same result. Finally , after a
third summons , a window was opened ,
and a feminine voice timidly inquired :
Tlio surprise of the newspaper man
can hotter bo imagined than described.
The idea of a woman being in charge of
an otllco In such a dismal place so o mod
almost preposterous. Ho , however , ex
plained his mission , and after a little
delay was admitted by a slight , delicate
girl , who appeared to bo hardly older
than eighteen years.
nTho little room was as neat and clean
ns a now pin. The lloor was as white as
a scrub-brubh could make It. On the
walls word tastefully pinned a number
of pretty advertising curds. A glass on
a table hear by contained a. bunch of
Jlowers , nnd a comfortable , hoinolikoalr
pervaded the whole room , so entirely
different from the average country.rail
road stalidni with its foul odors pf bad
tobacco and oil. When tlio last word of
the message wus out the reporter quos

' Well , it does not. They give the

rea'bon I can give for that , binco you ask
for it , is that young ladies are moro
careful and do not go to bleep as the
buy men do , and pile up a wreck in front
of the otlico. "
"Aro you not afraid of tramps ? "
"Good gracious ! jes. They are the
bane of our existence. Wo are prepared -

"Have you had any odd experiences

will never forgot. It was ono of the
coldcbt nights of last winter. Rain had
fallen the day before and toward even
ing it had grown colder. After mid
night the thermometer was down be
low x.oro and n high wind was raging.
About U o'clock in the morning some
body rapped al Iho door. I did not
notice it at first as I know it was only a
tramp. Ono had boon loitering around
all day and had insulted mo the
night before , and I thought it was the
same one back again. Ho kicked the
door again , and I raised the window
and asked him what ho wanted. Ho
said ho wanted to come in , and if ho
did not got in ho would break down the
door. Then ho commenced to swear at

wouldnot admit him. That made him
"Ho beat and kicked the door until
I thought ho would break it down.
Then ho tried all Iho windows , and lln-

train had passed for an hour before.
None had loft the city , and the nearest
telegraph ollico was two miles away. I
pulled out the drawer to got my revel
ver. It was gone ! Then I remembered
having loft it at homo that night to
have it repaired. The man was knock
ing away at the door , and every mo-
ent 1 thought would bo my last. I
knelt down and prayed for assistance.
The man at the door had grown quieter ,
and commenced to beg mo to lot him in.
'Great God , lady ! ' ho baid to mo. 'I am
freezing , and if you do not let mo in
you will llnd me dead hero in the morn
