A Hebrew club was in session. Mr.
Wif-cman wanted to mop the coiling

him. However , Mr.Wixeman was escort

John Peal is the original "hungry
man. " Saturday night ho was arrested
at Fort Omaha for "cracking safes. "
The bafos , however , wore kitchen safes ,

burglars. John was arrested four
months ago charged with dining from
lion barrels. Ho is a discharged
homier , and since then has Hindu a rep

last night. While standing under the
entrance a burly bouncer by the name
of Wollor approached him and ordered
him down front to "buy do boor. "
Phelps did not cnro to go , and got into
nn altercation with the bouncer. The
bouncer then tried to make Phclps un
derstand the business policy of the
house , by whacking him over the head
hovcral times with his cane. Mr. Wol-
ler now languishes in the city bastllo.
Ho was hugging his fiddle. It was
liis only friend , ho taid , except the
largo load of South Tenth street whisky
which he was also taking care of. His
name is Thomas McQuagc. After fid
dling until ho got so full that ho was
past handling the bow , ho laid down on
the sidewalk Saturday night and wooed
the drowsy god. The patrol wagon car
ried him to the station , and during the
rldo ho embraced his violin box , as a

Hilton by a Ferocious Doc *
I The flve-j ear-old daughter of John Em
blem , who resides on Virginia avenue near
Lcavcnwoith street , was shockingly bitten
< by a vicious dog yesterday morning. The
dog is n shepherd belonging to Henry Nelson ,
n neighbor. The child was bitten on the right
temple , twice under the loft eye , nnd ou the
scalp above the forehead. Lr. Uoevcs attended
the case , i-auteriilnj ? unit sewing up the
wounds. The doctor did not consider the
dog rabid , nnd although the mother of the
child clamored to have it shot , ho advised
that it bo allowed to live. His reason for
this action was that the dog would show
symptoms of being labld within thirty days
if ho was affected with that malady , and the
parents would have the satisfaction uf watch
ing both the case aud the dog1.
The child , in her play , attempted to pick up

things you lot mo do before the baby
cumo that you don't lot mo do now. "
"Do you think so , Bobby ? "
"Yoa , " assorted Bobby. "Still , " ho

two'children as you \vero when you

was very fond of his children and especially
of the girl baby. Oaw Is a good looking

The only \\ny to bocuro the successful
.ntimigcmcnt . of si railroad is to phico it
under the control of tiblo olllcers , who
must , ho required to give it their time
nnd attention , to employ intelligent sub
ordinates , who must bo sulllciontly com
pensated and thoroughly disciplined.
By this force every detail of construc
tion , maintenance and operation must
bo closely watched. In the observance
of these simple principles lies the secret
of the great success and world-wide
fame of the Pennsylvania lines. Their
ollicors are not speculators or stock job
bers , but find in the broad field oT their
vocation , variety and full occupation
for brains that rest only at nature's
command. Their employes have not
the mean appearance of hirelings , but
the bearing and dignity of men. The
locomotives and coaches of the Pennsyl
vania system are built in its own shops ,
by its own employes , and
after its own standard speci
fications , which are continually
being _ improved. The unwrough't
material is subjected to the strongest
tests , and the llnishod equipment is
thoroughly inspected at short intervals.
The methods of operation of the Penn
sylvania lines include every safeguard
known to railroad science. The short
and direct routes of the Pennsylvania
ftoni. its army of employes and its
extensive equipment have made possible
the establishment of an organization of
through train service to the east that
offers a greater variety of choice and
better accommodations than have
been known heretofore. Five trains
leave Chicago every day via the
Pennsylvania lines , for Pittsburgh ,
Baltimore. Washington , Philadelphia
and Now York. The Pennsylvania spe
cial at 10 a. in. ; the Fast line at 3:15 : p.
m. ; the Pennsylvania limited iU 6 p.
in. ; the Eastern express at 8:30 : p. in. ;
the Atlantic express at 11:550 : p. m.
These are each excellent trains. For
tickets and Pullman accommodations
apply to C.V. . Adams , asst. gen. pass ,
agent , Co Clark street , Chicago.
Through tickets via the Pennsylvania
lines can also bo procured from any
ticket agent throughout the west or
northwest , and it should bo remem
bered that the Pennsylvania lines are
also short and direct from Chicago to
Indianapolis , Cincinnati , Louisville
and the south.
Detroit Free Press : "I was attorney
for the railroad twenty 3 ears ago , '
said a Detroit lawyer , "and one day
went out to settle a loss with a woman.
She and her husband had been struck
at a crossing , and while she was badly
hurt , ho was killed outright and horses
and buggy smashed lo pieces. They
had the dead wood on us for 15,000 , as
the engineer did not signal the cross
ing. I wont out to make an offer of
about $12,000. The widow was not able
to sit up , and I stopped at a store in the
village and bought bomo oranges and
lemons and took them up. When wo
finally got around to the matter of dam
ages , she said :
"Yes , it was a sad thing , nnd the rail
road was to blame , but I don't want to
bo mean about it. I suppose the presi
dent and all of 'em are worried most to
death , and I suppose I could stop all the
cars from running , but I want to bo
just. Your bringing up that fruit
proves how kind-hearted you all are ,
and if you think you could altord to
give mo $1.000 I'll sign off. " .
"I made her accept $0,000 , and took
her the money myself. When she re
ceived it she asked :
"Won't the road bo crlnnledV"
"Oh , no. "
"Cora run just the samoV"
"And none of your folks are mad at
mo ? "
"Well , then , I'll take it , but if the
road bhould got hard up and want tc
borrow , it'll lind mo ready to lo'nd. "

According to the Iron Ago the longest
straight reach of railway in the worlt
is on the now Argentine Pacific rail
way , from Buenos Ayres to the foot o
the Andes. For a distance of 211 miles
the line Is laid without u curve. Tlu
level nature of the country will bo evident
dent from the fact that there is noithoi
a cutting or an embankment which if
deeper or higher than ono yard. The
entire absence of wood on the plait
across which the western end of the roai

IS BASE BALL BARBAROUS ?
Joel llcntoii Think * ( In ; National Game
American Magazine : The base ball of
lo-dnyhas , to bo sure , its primitive germ
in the delightful boys' game wo used to
know , but its departure from that in
character is both marvelous and malign.
Its main object COOIUM to bo to obliterate
all the fun which the game naturally
supplier , with ono other the develop
ment of a "pitcher. " Ilo is called a
"pitcher" principally because he won't
or can't pitch. That in. ho has learned
a cortortion of body and swing of arm
that defeats all uxpoctcncy of the batter
and extinguishes the true fun in the
game. On him more than any one else
depends the success of a side ; but what
it succeeds to it would bo dilllcult to
toll. When it its " ' '
. gets "innings' they
are more or less useless , because another
"pitcher" ' with tricks peculiar to Him
self , excites again the admiration of the
crowd of njiectators by making hits
cither scarce , accidental , or impossible.
In the old game of free and frequent
hitting n sldo was no more persistently
"in" than one is now. It wont out as
often , but it could tell what it gained by
an "inning. " It secured the sport for
which ball playing was llrst invented ,
and for which it has been played cer
tainly 2,000 years , viz : the joy of hitting
the ball. When it wont out the other
side succeeded to its rapture and ex
perience. The modern game , on the
contrary , is something like what llshing
might b"ecomo if some one would invent
a "regulation bait" which no lish would
ever bite , or like the hunting which
the proprietor of a grove recommended
and was called to account for recom
mending when ho replied that.
"There was no game tii the grove. I
know , but I thought that fact would
make all the more hunting. "
The "catcher" in modern b.iso ball is
another development that must not bo
passed by. In the circuses there is
often a trained athlete , who stands in
front of a cannon and catches the ball
in his hand when it is tired out , at no
very great distance from the gun. The
charge of powder which sends it , however -
over , is measured , and serious accidents
resulting from the undertaking , ! think ,
are not numerous. But the catcher of
the regulation baseball implement , or
globe , or toy call it which you will
takes liis life in his hands , lie has to
catch a ball which might as well bo a
cannon ball , with little power to tell
where it will find him or he itand with
a cortnintj that if it hits him serious or
fatal injury is most likely to ensue. To
make it less possible that his nose or
jaw shall bo broken , or to prevent his
teeth from being Knocked entirely out ,
ho now wears a wire cage over his face ,
not wholly dissimilar to an ox's miuilc
or burglar's mnsk.C H )
This device , however , does not always
prevent a catastrophe. Injury and vir
tual mayhem to the hands the catcher
is alwajsi sure to get if ho remains in
the business long. Calloused joints and
broken lingers nra certain to come.
Injuries which no sane person not a
baseball player would accept for a
princely fortune given in advance are
made light of by the true catcher , and
are often referred to by the craft as if
they were the scars won in an epoch-
deciding battle. The "regulation" ball
is really an instrument of barbarism.
It has hurt others than the catcherand
occasionally kills an innocent person ,
who happens to stand in the line of its
path , with easy celerity.

that in such case the family could never
