A. Strnnco Mouth ,
K. II. Uccd , n drummer for an Evansville ,
Ind. , house , fell ever the railing from ono of
the upper floors of the Palmer house in Chicago
cage u few evenings ago and was Instantly
killed , Tim circumstances of his falling
ivero very strange , and nro yet n mystery.
The coroner's Jury Investigated the hotel
and iimdo thq following discoveries :
The room which the deceased had occupied
opens upon a staircase about four foot In
width which led from tlio sixth to ihoground
lloor. About live feet from the door a rail
ing surrounded an open space between the
four sides of the spiral stairway. Through
' < tlu.i opening the deceased had fallen , some-
'M , ivlicro between the sixth and first lloor. This
railing measured twonty.llvo Inches In height ,
nnd extended but u few Inches above a man's
kncfs. Above n Hood of light was shyj
through a ultylljjlit.
Tlio Jury thought that n man might come
out of the room , wheel around or stagger ,
ivhllo temporarily blinded by the glare , ami
fall over the railing to death on the inurblo
floor six stories below. The following vcr-
tllct was rolhrned :
"We , the Jury , find that the deceased met
hlft death from shook nnd Injuries ro.eolved
by falling ever a stair railing to the ground
lloor In the Palmer house , August 85. and
ivo , the Jury , recommend that the owner of
the Palmer house place higher railing urouud
said stairway. "
M , UoUc ) , the father-in-law of Mr. Head ,
testified that the deceased was not a drinking -
ing man , uud the clerks af the hotel said that
hu was perfectly sober at the time ho placed
his name upon the register.

Monday b.v the arrest of Joseph K. Attwood ,

Dcnlli In a Sgliixincr.
A inlddld-agpd man went into it saloon in
the city hull building tire other afternoon' ,
says tlio Cleveland Plain Dealer , and called
fern plass of beerUnas given litin , and
bi'foro drinking lie took a ( < niall paper fiom
hjs lockctand emptied i < while pouder into
the glass , after which be drank the beer.
f-oon after this the panic nmn went Into 1'rcd
Dii'biill's Hii'loon and icpeuUd the operation.
Patrolman Meucjium wns told that the fel
low contemplated suicide und he placed him
under urrcht and took him to the ccntr.il
police station. Jn the bottom of tlio beer
glass froiih\\hlch the man had drank wns n
thick sediment , und the paper around u
powder whkb ho had put in the glass was
labeled "poison. "
At the cenlrul police station it was learned
that the man's name Is .M. H. Husteln , u
drummer for a Cincinnati clothing bouse.
The poison tnkoH wns chloral. Dr. Ames
wus biimmoncd , but snid Hustejn wus In no
danger of dying. As a safeguard Patrolman
Moculmm spent several hours walking1 the
would-be Btilciuo about the Jail to prevent his
falling asleep. Hustein admitted that ho
wanted to die , and said ho wns tired of liv
ing. Ho is H single man , nnd Is well known
to many clothing men throughout the state.
Ho came to Cleveland several days ago , and
registered at the Ontario street house. A
Jotter written by C5. P. Schweitzer , of Cin
cinnati , and another written by A. Kolbe , of
Philadelphia , were found in his possession.
Whlskors After Doatli.
The drummers bring In a good story oo
caslonally , suys the Macon Telegraph. Alex
ander Subers was in Griflln a few days ago ,
and while there went into u barber shop to
bo shaved. The barber were a worried look ,
nnd when ho had Mr. Subers lathered h6 became -
"IJoss. I see in the paper about a dead
man's body being taken up and ho was clean
hlmved when ho was buried , but when they
took him tip he hud u full beard. Is there
any truth in It ! "
"Ohes , " replied the drummer , "I read
the account myself. "
"Clean shaved when ho died ! "
"Clean as my baby. "
"And when they took him up he had n full
board on his focof"
"Must bo so ; that other gentleman what I
shaved Just now said so , too ; but it woriies
inn mightily. "
"Why should It worr. " yotil"
"Well , they tell me lie was a good man ,
and tlio only way I can make It out is that he
wont to hcfivcn , and there ain't no harbors
there. I'm going to get out of this business
and go into something that I'll stand some
ehunco of getting to heaven in. Next ! "

Says He Was Koblird.
The Kensington police had in tholr care
recently un individual who tells a remarka
ble story. Ho states that his name Is Fred
erick Sehomherg , and that he is ft traveling
man hailing Irom Racine , Wis. , where ho is
identllicd with a loading hat firm. Ho
cites that while in Chicago the other night ,
he fell in with some strangers , who Induced
him to drink until ho lost consciousness ,
When ho regained his senses ho found him
self struggling in the waters of Lake Calu
met , stripped sta'rk naked , and badly brulsad
from the effects of a severe beating. He
swam to the shore nnd notitled the Pullman
people , who took him to Kensington. Ho
claims to have been robbed of ? 4,4fH ) In cash ,
but can give no connected or plausible ac
count of his night's adventure. The police
investigated the story and concluded that
the man is suffering Iiom delirium tremcns ,

The different asiociutions of traveling
men throughout the country seem to hav
imbibed now life from soiuo source , says a i
exchange. Their mcnibcrMhip is rapidly re
crultlug from among the younger mon en
gaged in business. This la very cncouruping.
Old members who have saved a competence
from their earnings nro constantly retiring
from the road and many of these give up
their connuutloii with M. T. organisations.

The New Monitor Amphitrito.
Wilmington Ko\vs : The monitor tun-
phitrito , an iron hull 2i2 ( foot in length ,
6i ( in breudth and 14 foot dco , the cen
tral sections llllcd with engines and
boilers , was tied ut the wharf at the
Ilarlan & llollingsworth company witli
big ropes and hawsers yostordtiy morn
ing preparatory to thoollluial test of the
machinery. The test was to begin at
noon , but the blowing out of the pack
ing of a steam joint caused a postpone
ment nntil 8 o'clock. At that hour Pust
Assistant Engineer William C. Eaton ,
of the United States navy , came aboard
the ship nnd the test began.
Tho'ongines were making sixty revo
lutions u minute , and the big twin pro
pellers were churning the water astern
at a furious rtito. Tlio hawsers were
stretched and. tlio vcel seemed lo bo
throbbing with life and struggling to
free herself from the wharf.
In tlio chihs of vcsiols to which the
Amphitrito belongs the motive powur
and machinery is all below thu main
deck , and the openings leading to the
engine and boiler rooms are small. In
this'cuso the engine- " and boHor occupy
the two midship sections of the vessel" ,
the boilern being just , forward of the en
gines and lyiii" agninni , the skin of the
hull on either bidu , the llro room occu
pying the spiico belwoon and thu doors
of six furnaces on each side opening in
to a bptico of hix or eight feet wide and
about fifty foot long. In this space last
night six or eight mon were feeding
coal to the llrcs. The heat was intense
and the perspiration was running oil
the Ili'omun iiibtreams. The thermometer -
otor roglstorod ir > o ° .
The eiigini ) room in us crowded with
levers , cranks and rods as is thu cab ot
a locomotive , and the light furnished
by Ilickering oil lumps and lanterns ,
duplicating the lines of the hngo ma
chines , make it seem inoru unnyded.
Everything was hot. The polished
brass stair rails burned the htind and
tlio hot deck burned the feet of visitors
through their shoes. The engines , two
in number , are of thu compound typo
having cylinders thirty-two and forty'
eight inches in diameter respectively
They are sot one upon each side at an
incline and work across the ship. The
high and low procure cylinders on the
pqrt drive the screw upon the star
board hide , and the reverse with the
other screws und cylinders. This ar
rangement iniutuB all Iho piston and
vulvo rods cross ouch other in passing
from crank shaft to cylinder or steam
chest anil is very compact but appar
ently much complicated.
About Invol with the point at which
the rod a cross each other is the first
cloulc of the engine room. The dock is
of iron grating und extends around the
cylinders parsing along the skin of the
ship on either side. The flickering
lights cuMing shadows on the moving
machinery below thin dock und soon
through tlio grating heightens the > m-
pretjuion of complicated movements and
improves the observer with the idea
that the whole fabric is in motion.
The test now in progress is to deter
mine the Jilllng of tlio contract between
the builderi. und the government , after
which it la expected the ship will go
to some o ( the nuvy yards for comple
tion. The present structure is entirely
metal , und in addition to the turret
nnd nrmnmunts , tlio joiner work of the
upM'tments for the otllcors und crow is
is yet to bo furnished. The wood back
ing and the tirmor plating of the hull
above the witter line IB uUo yet to bo

its most unique demand is as an article
ot the toilet , which use is constantly
growing. Why , I have twelve regular
orders , four of them on Lindoll avenue ,
from Indies , for eight gallons of milk
daily. In this the mistress of the hotmo
takes her evening bath. SJio considers
this equal to the chnmpngno bath , so
celebrated among Parisian ladles , only
the milk baths are much loss expensive ,
Bkimmcd milk being considered sufll-
ciont , and eight gallons amounting to
only 80 cents a day. I suppose the idea
is an offspring of the popular craze for
modernizing the antique , and Poppruo ,
the beautiful wife of Nero , who daily
bathed in milk for thu benefit of her
complexion , is , perhaps , the example.
