Tor the past txxo or tin ec dajs several of
the locnl p.tpcrs have been trying to deeido
xvho ought to hnvo the credit for the arrest
of tnu inun HI o , who was detected disposing
of the rare coins stolen from the Kilen
Musoe , In Oinnhn , n foxv da > s ago Ono
paper says Hint Chief Lucas worked up the
case with infinite skill , nud should hnvo full
ctcdlt , ntiil another details the experience of
Captain Ujer during his midnight vigil whllo
watching the fellow spend the money , and
insists Unit to him Oolongs the meed of
Chief Lucas leans very favorably to the
former version , but Insists that he is not
looking after praise He has no icputatloti
to make , etc. Ho wants the bojs to hnvo
full credit , and get nil they can. When
asked by u reporter foi the ntttnil Incts in
the case abovu refeired to , the chief was
iinlto reticent , but llnallj told his inteiro-
Kator to sco n colored man named liroxvn ,
who xxas present nt the dance where the ur-
rest was iniulo
"Well , but didn't Die" make the anesti"
quci icd the scribe.
"I never denied it , " responded the chiof.
"Wasn't ho there nil night , watching the

Hrown was seen , and that xxorthx asserted
that the story told by Pier was tiuo , and
that the latter was watching Hico for
hours and finally nrtostcd him. The chief
then held u shoit private interview with
Urown , after which lie requested the scribe
to again question him , but the latter did not
deem it ncccssaiy. The cnlef nnnounrrd
that the papers were continually trying to
kick upu row In the force , but they did not
succeed because c\erj tiling was harmonious
The chief may bo sincere in his belief that
there is no discoid in the ranks of his force ,
but that fact is by no means apparent to out
siders. It will be remembered that a short
time since thoio xxns a serious dlsiuptlon ,
which threatened senous trouble , and the
chief denied for some time that there was
ani thing in the report until the matter as-
Humcd such proportions as bid fair to break
up the whole force , when ho hcean to look
into the case , and settled the whole thing by
vhtunlly saying , "liojs , iou must behave
iouiselvcs. Ifiou don't like jour Job jou
cnu quit. " Uverything quieted down fora
time , but the lire still smouldered beneath
the sin face. Nothing Declined to disturb
the serenity of olTnns until the night of the
policeman's b.ill. On that occasion , several
of the "llncst" could not withstand tempta
tion , ami indulged their appetites for "tho
eiathui. " The icsult was that they became
quite t.illcatixe , as the liquoi loosened up
their tongues In fnct , their tongues began
to w ag so gliblj that some of the disagreea
ble things weic tioubliiig them began
to leak out , and there weie soxoial lively
veibal diffeienccs. Tilings itept on in this
wny until well niph moining , when some ot
the number letired to a neigliboimg saloon
to settle tlieu dilTcicncos. What followed
was nuj thing but cicditableto the members
of a foico tliat is supposed to bo as haimon-
lous as the chief asseits.
When matters becanio too warm the con
testants were "Jlrcd" bj the saloon keener ,
and the battle was lesumed on the sidewalk.
It is stated tnat guns were diawn before the
mattei was finally settled , .lust what the
trouble was it is impossible to ascertain at
present , but it was hardly in keeping with
"harmony. " The Bluffs police force has
long been notorious for its disagreements
and internal bickerings. It is about time to
put a stop to it for all time They have
been hushcd.teinporarily , but that docs not
\xoilt to any advantage.
There is a discordant element that is con
tinually causing trouble , and that , combined
with n ccitain jealousy , is responsible for all
difllculty. A thorough overhauling ot the
force would undoubtedly bo productive of an
much good in the increased efllcioney of the
body ns would an increase in numbers in its
present unsatisfactory condition.

Tlio Telephona Ring.
Manager Land Everybody feels nt per
fect liberty to kick if any mistakes are made
In tiio telephone ofllco , why shouldn't the
telephone folks have the like right to kick
when tbo patrons make mistakes. Wo
mustn't do It though But I'll telljouon
the quiet , that there isn't ono natron out of
ten thnt follows the instructions published
for the benefit of subscribers Now , for
Instance , you know that ono ring Is for the
central ofllce , and tlmt to call n subscriber
two rincs nro to bo given. There nro lots of
folks who try to call up n subscriber by ono
ring. If the operator nt the central
answers tbo signal , the first thing the
subscriber sings out will bo 'Say , central ,
whnt mo you doing ! don't cut in I want to
tnlk with so nnd so let np there. ' Then ,
when the subscriber has got through talking
with the other subscriber , bo wants to cnll
another number , nnd so ho rings for central
again. The operator , fearing that ho will of
fend by again icsponding , pays no attention ,
nnd nfter n llttlo irets another dicssing down
foi not answering. Lots of such cases occur ,
and it iscry perplexing. AVe'ro going to
make n strict rule nftor tills , and when there
is ono ring wa shall take it as being for
the central and shall cut in. It is
the only way to get the subscribers
educated to the idea that thcro must bo
sonic uniformity of slunals. Tlio telephone
system won't run itself. It's like nnj thing
else. We've got to have some system about
it If subscribers would onH pay n lltllo nt
tuntion to this , the service would bo much
more satisfactory. When xou have a llttlo
space to spare in TIM : Hi n 1 wish jou would
fix up something about it You know bow
I don't want to give olTcnsn , but jou ran
suggest it In some way that will strike them

Ilie Danger of UnyVlrcs Attnultoil
to Polo ? .
An clelrlcal freak of a most peculiar
nature occurred on Common street ,
near Ltalivnr , sajs the Now Orleans
IMcajuno , which resulted in the do
strttclloii of a shade Hoc on Iho side
A guy wire lending fiom an olcclrle
sticet lamp at the corner had boon
iinulo fast to theticc. . and , as is the
case in many ulncns in this city , it
bocamc fullj charged \\ith the electrical
thud , the RUJ wiles inoino mailner
coming in contact with the line \\iro of
the Louisiana 1'lcotrio Light company.
Wlienoxor Iho xxcathor was damp or
rainy the current found ils way down
the guj wire to the tree , thence to the
heart of the ticc to the ground , and at
times a bright spark was visible \\hon
tlio who touched the trunk of the true
about bovon feel above the giound.
The facts were ropoitcd to the com
pany , but no attention was paid to the
complaint , although it XMH ctnisidoiud
as dangerous. Tlie other night the
contact between the wire and thu ticc
appeared to hu\o boon almost constant
nnd perfect , and the tieo commenced
smoking , whilu the odor of burning
xxood permeated the ntmosphoio in the
Uoiuity. The next moining the top of
the tree fiomhoro Iho wire * encircling
it full , btjing doubtlcbs pushed o\cr by
the strain on the wi.-o.
On examining Iho stum ] ) of the lice
it was found that the heart and wood
around it was much more charred and
burned than the bark , and the tree from
the top of the Khi m ] > down into the
giound was virtually a huge tube , the
I'uricnt having burned out , tlio wet portion
tion of tlio tree ( which was the heart )
in seeking the gtound.
At the corner of Roman and Canal
sticetb there is a tree which serves as a
biace for the corner-pole , and the wiie
extending from this to the electric
light post is also charged and highly
dangerous to life. Triio fact is that
xxhorox or guy wires arostiotchcd fiom
electi ic-light posts to trees or other
posts , planted to siiotain the poles tlioro
is extreme dnngur. The guy wires nre
naked , and where they encircle the
posts and trees are not protected by in
sulators. In dump or wet weather it is
more than piobablo that the electric
curiont , which ahxajb seeks the short
est possible mc.ins of reaching the
ground. i& divei ted to these guy whcs
and icndui- ) them Instruments of cer
tain death , mucli more daniroious than
xx quid be shotguns loaded to the nuwlo
with buckshot and slugs and standing at
full cock , for with the latter death .could
only come fiom a touch on the tiigger ,

Escape of a Iforso Thiel' .
Texas in 1SI ! " had no jails , and had
just cut loose from Mexico , and thcie
were but three modes of punishment ,
small xvhinping. largo xthipping and
branding for minor crimes. Tor mur
der , horse stealing and forgcrx death.
I was a soldier in Gon. Houston's army
and recall ono instance of hoi so steal
ing , where the guilty party was per
mitted to escape. It xvas in Montgom
ery county in 181(7. ( The man was tried.
found guilty , put upon tlio horse ho had
stolen , his legs tied under the horse and
ho was led out to the edge of the > timber
bx , some twentj or more members of the
' court , "all mounted and armed. Ar
riving at the end of the timbers , all dis
mounted. except the piisoncr , and set
ting their riilos against the side of a log ,
commenced looking around for a sin t-
abie gallows tree. One of the part.x dis
covered , about 300 jards out on the
prairie , such a tico with a la.'ge limb
growing at right angles to the trunk ,
some txventy foot from the ground. lie
icmarkcd that the Lord had planted it
thoie to hang our hoi so thief on.
Agreed , and the xxholo party walked ,
leaving the guns and horses behind ,
leading the condemned man still tied to
the horso. It xxas found hard to climb
the treo. Tlio discoverer of it asked for
a "boost. " Being a largo , fat man , it
took all that could got around him to
gixc the boost , but they did it , and ho
climbed to the limb. One end of the
rope was around the prisoner's nock ; to
got the other end fast to the limb was
the task set for the man up the ti'eo.
After sevoial tlnoxvn he caught tlio
rope , but the limb was so lariro that it
could not be easily brought mound and
unless the end was caught under the
rope could not bo tied. The big
man , lying on his breast , hold
ing the main part of the lope in ono
hand , with the other tried to throw
under the limb , butoxor.x time failed to
catch the end. The coininittcomcn all
had their ojes on him , looking up. The
prisoner nt the other end of the tope ,
xvas struck by an idea. Thoio was life
andliboityin it. IIo diove his heels
against tlio horse's sides. Luckily he
had stolen a good fast horse and like a
Hash axvay xvcnt homo and rider , and in
the alarm of the outcry the fat man np
the tree missed his hold and fell to the
ground , badly hurt of coin-so. The
fugitix-o xx-ont Hying oxer tno pruirio ,
the rope streaming behind his neck.
The vigilance party's guns and horses
xx era. 'iOO yards off. After the e.xcito-
mont was' over a inoeling of the court
xxas hold , to reconsider tlio matter of
nature having planted that particular
tree to hang that particular man upon ,
and it xvas unaniinously cained that it
not. '

The I'lsrslHlent I'linplo.
The American Analyst : A very com
mon error is the belief that a red no e
or chin , and pimples or "blossoms"
about that part of the face , arc the
rnsult of haid drinking , and are always
indicative of thai vice. With many
parsons this is the case. The accelera
tion of the movement of the heart , the
rapid heating of the body and the sloxv
xx'enkenlng of the blood , three of the
chief results of the UBO of alcohol upon
the system , too often llnd expressions in
the unsightly symptoms mentioned , as
xx'oll as others moro serious. Those
symptoms often rise from other and
very different causes. In some in
stances exposure to the sunlight will
produce results hardly distinguishable
from those of alcoholic indulgence , and
more especially xvlth those xvith impure
blood , or xvhoso habits have not been
marked by the regularity demanded by
health. Tight lacing or oven the more
xvearing of stays , no mutter how loosely
these may lit , or hoxv soft mid llcxiblo
the material from xvliich they are made ,
frequently oxoroiso the same effect in
every regard. Many u temperate
xvoman and abstinent maid has acquired
the reputation of being a hard drinker
from the appearance of her meo , xvhon ,
as a .mutter of fact , her only fault lias
been to desire to look attractive and its
foolish expression in the compression of
her x\-aist nnd alxlomen. Gluttony is
another common eau o of a rod nee
and cutaneous disorders of the faco.
And in this icgaul glutton ) docs not
mean the eating of largo mwnlitlos oi
