J. C , Watts , cashier of the State bank
of Ncola , has gone wrong. Ho Is a heavy
defaulter and Is now a fugitive from Justice ,
supposed to bo somowhcro In Colorado. His
bondsmen have taken charge of tbo bank
and have made good his shortage.
A week ago Walls left Ncola In answer tea
a telegram announcing the dangerous ill
ness of his brother In Denver. It was ex
pected that ho would return In a few days ,
or would at least communicate with the
bank. Several days passed without hearing
from him. In the course of business some
paper en mo Into the hands of the bank ofll-
clals that excited their curiosity. A little
Investigation allayed Iho curiosity and ex
cited suspicion and the work of overhauling
the cashier's accounts was begun. All day
Thanksgiving experts were at work on Iho
books and before night Iho fact was made
plain lhat Iho cashier was short In his ac
counts , The first Investigations revealed a
discrepancy of $2fiOO , and the Investigations
continued yesterday brought Ihe shortage to
nearly $0.000 , with a possibility that U
would reach $10,000.
Tlui president of the bank Is C. M. King ,
a bridge contractor and builder In. Def >
Molnes. Ho was at once advised by wire
and has been present , assisting In the In
vestigation. Herman Mendel ami C. D. 1)11-
lln , bondsmen of Watts , also assisted. Yes
terday at n meeting of the directors Mendel
was made cashier. The bondsmen have paid
Into the bank every dollar of the shortage
so far discovered and stand ready to make
good any further loss that may bo discovered.
Dlllln Is the father-in-law of Watts.
The story of Watts' downfall Is ono that
liis been written and printed In the news
papers a thousand times. He was a young
man of an exemplary character , enjoying the
confidence of his business associates and the
Ncola public to a most remarkable extent.
In an evil hour ho yielded to the temptation
of a friend to speculate a little on the Chicago
cage Hoard of Trade. Ho had the usual
luck nnd lo retrieve his losses began lo
use the bank's funds. He was on the wrong
Rldo of the wheat market and the last losses
tin sustained came Just at the time ho re
ceived the telegram announcing the Illness
of his brother. He left without attempting
to conceal his latest misappropriation of the
li.inl''s money. Nolhlng has been heard
from him since his departure. His mother
Is with the sick brother in Denver nnd It Is
only supposition that ho has gene there.
Walts Is well known In Council muffs.
For years his father , A. A. Walls , was
cashier of Iho Council Uluffs Savings bank
and young Watts held various positions In
Iho bank under his father. When the elder
Watts went lo Ncola for Iho purpose of
establishing the bank there the son accom
panied him. Three years ago when the
Tallier died Ihe young man was advanced to
Iho position of cashier. Walls married
Dtllln's daughter three years ago and his
family are among the most highly respected
licoplo In the village.
There wcro rumors thai Walts had do
mestic trouble , but this Is most emphatically .
denied by every person in Neola who could !
bo talked with by wire last evening. The I
ilgh standing of the young man is Indl- .
catcd by the general expression of sympathy "
; rom all classes of people. Merchants freely
expressed the opinion that if Watts would
return today they would not withhold their
confidence , but would entrust their money
and business to him ! without hesitancy.
The prompt action of Walls' bondsmen in
making up the amount of his shorlago pre
vented any Injury lo the credit of the In
stitution and there will bo no Interruption
of Us business. _

The people of Council Hluffs , lhat is , a
good majority of thu good people , will have
occasion to thank Street Commissioner Mor
ris before the winter la over for the deep
and intelligent Interest ho Is taking In the
problem of good streets and sidewalks. The
cold weather which came around so sud
denly compelled a complete unspent-Ion of all
street work , and all of the extra force under
the direction ot the commissioner was laid
off. Only ono man on the regular gang , of
fldowalk repairers was retained , and he
failed to report for duty.
The commissioner spent an hour or Iwo at
the city building yesterday looking up the
matter of his authority for taking care of
the sidewalks In winter , and particularly his
authorlly for requiring properly owners lo
keep their walks clear of mow. Ho found
an ordinance giving him authority to put
men at work shoveling off snow from the
sidewalks In front of property where the
owners neglect or refute to do eo. The
Ptreel commissioner can , with the advice of
the engineer nnd city marshal , rot his gangn
to work removing the snow and reporting the
cost for taxation against the property. The
ordinance If. perhaps , a little weak , but it
Is probable that the council will consent to
strengthen it. There 1 a statute In the
I'tato ' code which gives cities the right to
pass ordinances taxing the cost of removing
wiow from the tldowalks to the abutting
property. For years the ncglecl of cltlzeno
to keep their walks clean has been one of
the most serious nultancos , Many of the
wealthier citizens , amply able to pay for the
labor necemary to do this work , steadfastly
refuse or neglect to have It done , Many of
the wealthiest have not spent a dollar on thlu
work for years , and have taken no Interest
In the complaints that have been made by
an Inconvenienced public. Accidents have
occurred and the city has been sued and
heavy Judgmontu obtained through their
neglect. This winter the Intention la to
compel these men to discharge the duty they
owe to the public. It U a singular fact that
the poorer claw of people are the most
prompt to clear away the enow ,
Street Commlmloner Morris has a scheme
by which ho can do the work promptly and

Judge Smith handed down a decision yes
terday In the case of Wilbur AV. Holcom
against Daniel Dull nnd others. The cas
Involves the foreclosure of a mortRage on
1,400 acres of land In this county. Th
principal , with accrued Interest , amount
to about $18,000 on the loan , which wa
madci In 1SS6. In June , 1SS9 , Dull sold 55
acres of the land to John E. Hlackman ntu
In February , 1892 , notice of this purchast
\vts sent to Holcomh by Illackman. Sovera
mouths subsequent to this notice Dull soli
moio of the land to Urablll and Klopplng
These sales amounted to about -410 acres
At the tlmo the deeds to these lands were
filed releases were given by Holcomh1 to the
purchases. ) The title to the lands sold to
IMuckman by Dull passed Into the possesslot
of Pholon , Duffy fc Savage , who appear ns
Interested parties In Iho foreclosure pro
ceodlnRS. They Insisted that before the
mortgage was brought In force ns agalns
their portion of the 1,400 acre tract tha
the plaintiff exhausted the full value of the
laud sold to Ctrablll and Klopplng , whlcl
ho released. In the scttlemenl of Ihls poln
an interesting proposition of law was do
velopcd and ono that the courts of Iowa
have never been callc/d upon to determine
Judge Smith dwells at length nu the qucs
lion raised and his decision handed down
yesterday sustains the position of Phclon
Duffy & Savage. They Insisted that the
value of the land released must be credited
on Iho mortgage to Its full value and no
prorated , as asked by the plaintiff.
In deciding the point Judge Smith callct'
attention to the laws of the state regarding
the foreclosure of mortgages lu case the
original property given as security lias been
sold In parcels. The rule of all the stales
except Iowa and Kentucky is that the burden
of the mortgage shall rest upon the tracts
In the Inverse order of their date ot sale.
The Iowa courts hold thai Ihe various Iracts
shall bo imposed with the burden pro rota ,
and Ihls was Iho position taken by the
plaintiff In the present suit. Judge Smith
held thai Inasmuch as the sale of the Gra-
blll and Klopplng Iracts was made subse
quent to the Hlackman sale , the full value
of the land last sold should he credited on
Iho mortgage before any of its burden
should bo established against the Illackman
tract. A decree of foreclosure will be
drawn up by the attorneys In the case In
accordance with Judge Smith's holding on
this point.
In the case ot the Security Savings and
Loan association against Patrick Lyons a
decree of foreclosure was rendered.

The passengers on a Chestnut street car
enjoyed a laugh the other afternoon , relates
the Philadelphia Record , thai was worth
double the fare. At Eighteenth and Chest
nut streets the car stopped and an old man ,
who attracted considerable attention , got en.
He looked like a man who had built up a
brUk business In some provincial town. Ho
sat down near the rear platform and when
the conductor came In for his faro he handed
him a quarter and pocketed lila change.
"Say , " he shouted , "you give mo a re
ceipt ! "
"A what ? "
"I want receipt. First thing I know
some other coiiductor'll get on hero and'll
want another fare. You give mo a receipt. "
The other passengers laughed , but the old
man persisted : "You give mo a receipt. "
"My good man , " said the conductor , "wo
do not give receipts. Your faro Is paid and
it ls all right. "
The old man was not satisfied with Ihls
and ullll requested his iccolpt. The con
ductor went out on the platform and pondered
dered deeply for a moment. Then ho fished
an old transfer ticket from bin pocket and
handed It to the passenger. Ho was satis-
fled with thlu and held It lightly In his fin
gers until the car reached Eleventh street ,
when ho gel off.

A conference has been held between Gen

lollco force In relation lo card sharps and
aklrs of different kinds frequenting the
yards for the purpose of catching some un-
vary Htockman with money.
U Is known thai men of the class mcn-
loncd hang about the yaros and Exchuigc
mtldlng watching for cattlemen who draw
money. An acquaintance is quickly formed
and the stockman Is steered across the tracks
nto some low resort where .In a very

ager Dabcock Is willing lo keep Ihese sharp
ers off stock yards property , provided
ho local police will work In harmony with
ilm. Chief lircnnan and Mr. Habcock both
aver the Idea of stationing an officer who
mows all of these swindlers at the ex

John IJ. Sargent of San Francisco , who
has been In the Kootenay mining districts
for the past two months , tells n remark
able story of the way a tenderfoot from
Montreal discovered a gold mine In thai
far away mining region. The young man ,
who was a clerk , was spending a few weeks
wllh a friend engaged In mining , and put
In his lime fishing and hunting , relates Ihe
Denver Republican. The location of his
friend's cabin was far up toward the head
waters of ono of Iho tributaries of the
Kootenay river , far fron < any other pros
pector , and In a section where the bears
wore not only numerous , but Inquisitive
and troublesome.
When l-itli men were away from the
cabin it was necessary to carefully close
up all the openings , as the bears had an
unpleasant habit of climbing Into the cabin ,
and. besides gelling away with nil the pro
visions In sight , playing foot ball with the
cooking utensils. The bears were of the
common brown variety , none of them very
large , and were not considered dangerous ;
In fact , their worst trait of character was
the familiarity which bred anger rather
tlian contempt. One day as the two friends
returned from n hunting excursion they
saw three bears Investigating the surround
ings of the cabin , occasionally stopping to
roll about a camp kettle which had been
thoughtlessly left , outside.
lloth men were armed with rifles , and as
they succeeded In getting near the aiilmnls
wlthoul being perceived , were able to take
deliberate aim. As tliey delivered their
fire , two of the bears fell , the third t-cam-
wrlng off up the mountain. As they sup-
xvcd both animals dead , they neglected to
reload , and had approached to within a few
'eet of the prostrate bears when the larg
est auddenly sprang to his feet , and , with a
fierce roar , mai'Jirectiy for them.
The young man from the city had never
cultivated a close acquaintance -\lth the
jcar family , and did the first tiling that
occurred to him dropped his weapon and
sprinted for the nearest tree , about 100
, -arJe away , and growing on the edge of n
julch twelve or fifteen feet deep. The bear
stopped a few second : ) to milff at the rifle ,
and then contemptuously tossing It asldo
continued the chase. The hunter reached
he tree and had climbed to the lower limbs
when his pursuer reached It , and without
any limitation commenced the ascent Thh
wa * something that the amateur huntsman
lad not calculated upon , and lie at once
iroceeded to climb higher. In the hope that
its antagonlsl might get tired and give up.
The tree loaned somewhat ovrr the ravine ,
making the climbing easy , but the fact
favored the bear as well , and when near
the upper branches the young fellow found to
his dismay that the hear was entirely too
close for comfort. At thai moment , however -
over , his friend , who had recovered from lila
fright , and reloaded , shot the animal through
the head.
Now another danger manifested Itself. The
combined weight of the man and the bear
had been too much for the slender hold of
the roots of the tree upon the soil , and as It
leaned further and further over the gulch
it became evident that unless ho could
sercmblo down the man would be thrown
upon the rocks at the bottom. Clinging to
ono limb after another , he made desperate
efforts to got down , but before he had ac
complished more than half the distance the
last rcot gave way and there seemed to hn
nothing between him and death or Herloim
Injury. Ills grip closed upon the limit to
which ho was clinging , and In another mo
ment the top of the tree rested on thu hot- i
torn of the ravine , while the thoroughly '
frightened man dropped upon the carcass of ,
the dead bear , hlmuelf almost dead wl'.n '
Hut the ulrangost feature of the udven-
turo was that In falling over the Ireo had re
moved thu earth from a four-foot vein ot
rich quartz , the existence of which had heon
entirely unsuspected. Now the young man

Maria Hose , aged 8 , was born In America ,
but Dr. Achilles Hose of 332 East Fifteenth
street , New York , who adopted the nweel-
fuced orphan four years ago , docs not know ,
to what race her parents belonged and can
not explain her extraordinary ability for the
acquisition of languages except by saying
thai her natural gifts are great and her am
bition to succeed keen.
The girl Is of fair complexion and her hair
and eyes are brown , relates tlie New York
Herald. She Is quiet anil demure , but of
quick observation. Dr. Hose has Inng written
and spoken in advocacy of the adoption oC
living Greek as Ihe International language
for physicians. Ho was anxious lhat the
child should learn Greek wlien he saw how
rapidly she progressed In English ami
French , both of which he speaks fluently.
He speaks Greek , but he does not be
lieve In the general method of teaching It ,
being sure that the acquqlrcmcnt of a now
tongue through daily contact with some ono
using it Is the best way.
Not content with what his own compan
ionship might do for his adopted daughter ,
ho brought from Greece Miss Kustathla
Momochartzi. Maria in a very tdiurt tlmo
spoke Greek nearly as well as her governess.
Miss Maria for the last few mouths lias
been attending the school of the Sisters of
the Sacred Heart , In West Seventeenth
strcel. It was there she prepared u sur
prise for Dr. Itose. She know It would plcaso
him greatly If she acquired still another
language. Without taking any one Into her
confidence , she began to talk with the Ger
man speaking school children and borrow
their vocabulary.
She busied her little head In this way1
for mouths , and yet during all that tlmo
not a word of German escaped her wlillo
she was In Dr. Hose's Iiearlng. When ho
hpoko German to his friends or patients
the little woman pretended to pay no at
tention. She heard every word and under
stood most of what was said , but slio wan
not yet cs far advanced as she wished to
be , so she said nothing. The Greek fox
which disposed the aforesaid gold brick ;
was not nearly as shrewd as this modern
Her triumph was coming. One day when
she felt fully equipped she surprised Dr.
Hose by breaking Into a conversation hv
German which he and a friend were having
and making II plain lhal she could xpcalc
Iho language as well as ho could. . . . .
"How's Ibis ? " ho cried , delighted. \ , .
"Oh ! " slio said , laughing , "It was easy
to learn. I thought you would like U. You
do , I see. "
The best feature of It all In thai the
child has not been a victim of over-study.
Dr. Hose is thu enemy of all systems ot
forcing. "I teamed English In the slums , "
he says , "and I know a man who speaks It
well and scholur-llke. who learned It In thu
Howery. My little girl bus not been tlcil
down to Irksome tusks as some are. She linn
learned naturally I mean , In the most nat
ural way. "
Dr. Hone says the assertion that w do
not know how the ancient Greeks pro
nounced their language Is all nonsense.
Greek , he says , Is the only homugeneouH
speech easy of acquirement. H had not
liorroucil from languages. The Greek spoked
today , ho says , lu practically the saino
tongue that wus iibi.'d by I'lato , Demosthenes
and Plutarch. The Greeks of today , he nay * ,
Hpoak a language which I'erlclcs and Socra
tes would undeniably have understood ,
Dr. Hose lu attacking the methods or
teaching Greek In the schools has lila
adoptcil daughter as evidence of the uc-
cms of the methods ho favors. Many prom
inent men am In uympathy with his work ,
and have vpoken enthusiastically of hli
cblld'u accomplishment ! ) .
