fFrom a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Dec. 25. (Special.) Adalbert
Lemon, the 10-year-old aon of Rev. H. A.
Lemon of Bethany, committed suicide yes
terday sfternooa by shooting himself with
a 22-callber rifle. No cause for the act of
the child la known, unles It can be ex
plained as the result of morbid broodlngs
over the fate of an uncle who killed hlm
alf In the same manner last August.
He shot himself while he was standing
by the porch of his father's house and died
at 7 p. m. Physicians who were sum
moned made a hasty examination of the
boy, who had shot himself lo the abdomen,
and determined upon an operation. The
viscera had been penetrated In seren
(laces. An effort waa made to suture the
wounda, but the efforts were of no avail,
aa the hemorrhage and the shock attend
ing the wound were too severe for his
small frame to withstand. Before he died
the boy told his parenta that the Idea of
aulclde had come Into hla bead several
weeks ago and that he bad Wn thinking
of It ever since. The boy was admitted to
membership In the Christian church of
Bethany several weeka ago, but bad not
manifested any sign of unusual fervor In
his belief.
A newspaper clipping giving an account
of the death of the uncle by suicide last
August had been In the boy's hands before
the deed and undoubtedly preyed on hla
mind to the extent that he determined to'
take his own life. The coroner has de
cided that. It will not be necessary to hold
aa Inquest. T
Haa Another .Man.
Dora Martin, with a rather at
tractive figure, was the . moving cause In
a shooting scrape which took place this
morning at T o'clock on Eaat O street.
Her husband, John R. Martin, engaged In
aa alternation with Relgh C. Poole over
their rights to the affections of the woman,
with the result that he waa shot at twice
by Poole and severely wounded In the
hand. Poole was arrested and locked up
at the police station pending the filing of
a. complaint charging him with assault
with Intent to kill.
Martin and hla wife came to the city sev
eral days ago from Holton, Kan., and went
to live at 1605 O atreet. His wife secured
employment aa a chambermaid and he went
to work at day labor. 'Something more
than a week ago the wife met Poole, who
wears better clothing than her huaband.
and forgot ber vow to cling to the one
whom aha had wedded. A quarrel caused
the couple to live apart. This morning aa
the wife left her room to go to work ahe
met her husband. Pnnte kn m-a mtanA- I

..xfrv . ' "'pp,e1 Mked Martin,
what you doin' with that woman?" I
Martin, in mild aurprlae at the question
as to his right to apeak to hla wife, re.
piled rather tartly, and the woman began
to move away. Poole drew a revolver
from Ms pocket and began ahootlng. Ths
flrat shot broke several bonea Id Martin a
right hand. The aecond -shot went wild,
Martin fell to the ground and Poole ran
down the street Id aa attempt to escape.
He was arrested by an officer who waa
hurrying tip to the scene of the shooting
la reasons to a hurry call. ' "' -
Martin was taken to a surgeon. His
hand Is badly mangled and It was neces
eary to remove aeveral of the bonea. The
man who did the shooting is employed aa
a Janitor In a downtown office building.
Nothing Is known as to his antecedents.
Arrested oa Release from Prison.
Jamea Leasing, who was sent up from
Washington county for horse stealing, was
released this morning after having served
a term of fifteen months. When he came
to the city to take a place that bed been
promised him he ran afoul of the police and
waa promptly arrested and held until the
Omaha train was resdy to leave at 1:40 p.
in. He waa taken to the station In charge
of an officer and huBtled off to Omaha.
Mandamus t'onaty Jxlge.
A mandamus suit will be filed shortly to
compel County Judge Waters to pay Into
the county treasury feea which he has col
lected during bis term of office for perform
ing marriage ceremonies. Two of the county
commissioners have passed a resolution
demanding that the county attorney tak.u
aome action to aeoure the payment of these
fees Into the county treasury. This con
tention Is denied by Judge Waters, who in
slsta that he la Juit aa much entitled to the
fees for performing the marriage ceremony

form them. He Is willing that ault should
be brought to determine his rights.

A holiday air prevailed throughout the

Some Quaint Features of Life.
A curioue attraction at a public house
ear Bromley, England, la a second-hand
ooffln. It waa made by the village car
penter, who frequently made cases for
Darwin's collection. One day work being
acarce the carpenter asked for something
to do and wss told by Darwin that be
could make blm a coffin, which he did. The
body of Darwin Is said to have lain In It
for two days before his burial In West
minster abbey was decided upon. A new
coffin was then provided and the first
passed Into the possession of the carpenter
and at bis death was bought by the pub
lican. An Indian traveler In Tibet who aaw the
Orand. Llama in 1882 thus described him:
"The Grand Llama Is a child of 8, with a
'bright and fair complexion and rosy cheelrs.
His eyes are large and penetrstlng, the
I shape of his face remarkably Aryan,
. though somewhat marred by the obliquity
of bis eysa. The thinness of his person
waa probably due . to the fatigue of the
court ceremonies and to the religious du
ties' and asretio observance of hla eatate.
A yellow miter covered his head, and Ita
,peadant lappets hid his ears; a yellow
.mantle, draped hla person, and he sst
cross-legged, with joined palm. The
throne on which he sat was supported by
carved lions and covered with silk scarfs.
The state officers moved about with becom
ing dignity."

. WASHINGTON, Dec. 25. The report of
patents ahowa that the number of applica
tions for. patents and trademarks for the
year ending June SO, 1902, was 61.268, an
Increase of 2,183 from the previous year,
and, although the force waa recently In
creased, the office Is choked with business
and there waa ao much to do that 11,042
applications could not be disposed of. .
The following table will show the num
ber of applications for patenta, trademarks,
etc., for the years named:
June 80, 1S93 43.589iJune 30, 18W 44,21t

June 80, 1897 47.74?june 30, 19U2 51.258
The falling off In 1898 and 1899 Is at
tributed to the Spanish war. The commis
sioner of patents explains that when the
war broke out the Inventors of the country
directed their attention to guns, projectiles,
torpedoes and other military supplies, but
before they had accomplished anything the
war waa over and the. Incentive for such
developments waa removed. Thus the time
and labor employed by these Inventors was
practically lost. There waa no demand for
their Inventions and, therefore, they hes
itated to pay the fees necessary to secure
patenta, and either withdrew their applica
tions or did not present them at all.
Inveatera Follow Fads.
"Inventors are extremely sensitive to pub
lie fads and fashions." said the commis
sioner of patents. "The rage Just now, for
example, Is automobilea, gaa engines snd
all forma of horseless carriages. A few
years ago every Inventor In . the country
waa designing bicycles; then they turned
their attention to dynamos, and when the
war broke out they dropped electricity and
begin to devise new guns and forma of
ammunition. They Invariably follow the
fashions and whatever happens to be the
rage, and the falling off lo the applications
In 1898 and 1899 waa because the demand
for military supplies bad ceased.

Ing the last year have Increased about 25

improvements In machinery show an un

been so great that w have had to divide
the work among three divisions where wo

Trnsts Take Good Men. "'"
"We have another and very embarrassing
evidence, of the activity of the -trusts In
different lines of inventions, for during the
last aeven months they have coaxed away
thirty-five of our best examlnera to look
after their patent business.- We cannot
keep the best men In this office because
the government . pays very poor salaries
compared with those that the trusts csn
afford to offer. Nor have we been able to
011 the places of those who have resigned,
although the Civil Service commission bst
held six examinations, and we have actu
ally advertised for men. The Increase is
business baa been so great that last yeai
congress gave ua a lot of additional exam
lnera, but the list remains unfilled because
we cannot get the men. It la not true that
the trusts are discharging their Inventor!
and patent lawyers. Oa the contrary, they
not only coma here and take away our best
experts, but they go to the technological
Institutions throughout the country and
offer laducementa to the most proficient
members of the graduating classes over
