A woman Intuition, a resourceful hus
band and a street car transfer check
caused domestic wm to the man tn tha
oase, agitation to the woman and a fruit
less trip for two detectives from the city
Jail Saturday morning. The name and ad
drees of the man who la now buying a
new Icebox and other seasonable tokens
for his wife, are suppressed for charitable
reasons, but the whole affair Is on record
at police headquarters.
Mr. Msn went down town the previous
evening to see the passing show. He drank
often and late and lost his regard for the
flight of time and a waiting wife. Ha
took the Inst car into the suburbs and
then walked back to his horn to prepare
his system for tha home going. Just about
tha time a crate of chickens on the walk
In front of a Howard street commission
house wm- announcing the advent of an
other new born mom, Mr. Man rang the
bell of his own door with much timidity
and a "well defined rumor" that he had
been slugged and robbed.
The wife met Mr. Man In the regulation
manner. She had already divided the
property. Henry could have the boys and
she would keep the girls; the oil painting
of both In the heyday of their young love,
she would cling to for the baby's sake,
while he could have the new suit case,
tory Does the Business.
"My dearest one, I've been slugged and
robbed. At the corner of Twenty-third
and Seward streets I was stopped by two
bold, bad men, who hit ms with a club and
took all my money except SO cents. I lay
unconscious for hours and finally dragged
myself home," said Mr. Man, with a
supreme effort and some show of righteous
ness. Womanly sympsthy Immediately came to
the surfsce with Urge bubbles.
"My poor Henry! And I judged you so
hastily. If you had only telephoned me
or sent a messenger boy, but how could
you when you lsy nearly desd In the cold
night alrT What time was you held up?"
"It wss Just 10 o'clock. I remember hear
ing the town clock striking the hour."
While Henry was making a noise In the
kitchen like a man trying to eat his break
fast the wife took It unto herself to tele
phone a report of the robbery to the
police. Detectives Malnney and Drummy
were sent out to get descriptions of the
culprits. While the detective were on
their way to Henry's house the wife be
thought herself to ransack Henry's coat.
She found a street car transfer check
punched at 10:80 Saturday night. Observ
ing the transfer check she went to Henry
and asked him whether he was sure he
was held up at 10 o'clock.
How Could He Forget It.
"And don't you suppose a man ought to
know when he was held up? Do you
think hold-ups are of such frequent occur
rence In the life of a man that he would
forget the time?" he replied, with a show
of Injured Innocence and an effort to drink
out of an empty cup.
It was all. the woman's light hand could
do to restrain her left hand from flashing
the transfer check, like the stsge heroine
who shows a document Just in time to foil
the villain and arouse tha gallery.
Then the detectives arrived.
"Madam, we would like to ' see Henry
8o-and-So, who waa robbed," said Detec
tive Drummy, politely.
"Henry, here are two officers of the law
to see you. They have come In their store
clothes so the robbers would not recog
nise them." explained the woman.
Henry began to wish he had accepted the
terms offered by his wife at the front door
a few hours before. He felt like a drown
ing man grasping at a floating pop bottle.
But he resolved to face the situation like
a man and make a full confession if pressed
Henry Picks Oat Bad Location.
Detectives Maloney and Drummy took off
their coats, opened their kit of tools and
went to work on the case like a pair of
sleuth, trying to find out why father does
not work. They asked Henry the usual
questions covering a case of assault and
robbery. Detective Drummy called the
woman Into the front hall and said he
smelted a rat, as Henry said ha was held
up at the corner of Twenty-third and Sew
ard streets, there being no such Intersec
tion. Then the woman told about the
"What kind of a stall are you giving us?
Do you think we are a pair of yokels?
Don't you suppose we saw you at 10 GO
last evening at Seventeenth and Cuming
streets with this transfer check In your
right hand, and yet you say you were
slugged and, robbed at 10 o'clock," said
Henry had no reply to offer. After a
minute's silence he confessed all.
Henry promised never, never again to
stay out late and said he would buy his
wife a new Ice box and a new front door
with an oval glass If she would forgive and
forget. . t ' .
8 he said she would.
Then the detectives nocked up their tools
and returned to the police station.

LOCOMOTIVE MAKES LEAP
Big F.istae Strikes Rear, of Pynn
mtte mm fpeef tarried
Train Over Role.
It Is thrilling enough to see a bicycle
or an automobile leap the gap. hut think
nf a great railroad train performing the
feat! Thle extraordinary adventure has Just
befallen the 'Frisco Meteor, one of the
fsstest trains In the southwest.
The Meteor was running south a mile a
minute through southwestern Kansas. It
wss flying through the outskirts of Turck.
a flag station three miles north of Colum
bus, when a terrific shock and explosion
ahead strnck terror Into the hearts of
trainmen and passengers. The train lifted
as If running upon sir; then It struck
with a gilding, running Impact, rorked vio
lently for an Instant and then resumed Its
smooth snd even gnlt. The air hissed, the
speed slackened, voices shouted and doors
banged, and the Meteor stopped.
The engineer climbed out of the cab and
leaped to the ground. As he walked back
to meet the trainmen and passengers who
had swarmed out of the cars, he said:
Men shuddered at thought of their nar
row esca.pe.-but they knew little of the
remarkable feat of the train the thing
that had saved them.
"I think they tore the track out under
us some," the engineer said, and the train
was barked up to see. A single glance was
sufficient to show what had happened.
Train wreckers bad placed dynamite upon
the rails. The forward truck wheels of the
great engine hsd fired the explosive, which
had torn a great hole in the roadbed, cut
ting a three-foot gap In the track.
The Meteor had leaped the gap!
What might have happened the 'Frisco
Meteor the other night la happening trains
In the United States with the frequency of
things that are commonplace. But whst
actually did happen Is a remarkable
The wreckers thst plotted the destruction
of this splendid train were making an ex
periment. There here been all sorts of
schemes for wrecking trains, but rarely
have men laid dynamite upon the rails.
The effect could not be easily foreseen.
The speed of the train might ssve It; or
It might the better serve to smash It up.
That the explosion would blow out a sec
tion of the track before the drivers of the
engine passed was reasonably certain.
Quick ss the train was. It could not be so
quick as the explosive.
Granting that the dynamite would tear
out a section of trsck In front of the
drivers, what would be the result? Would
the great weight of the 10o-ton engine force
the drivers Into the gap, or would the
engine leap the gap? And If it did leap
the gap would the wheels track?
A train wrecker Is not a student of nat
ural laws, but he has that native sense of
things which served In his desperate busi
ness. He knows that a very little thing
will sometimes wreck a train, and that
there Is a well known list of things which
will certainly throw the fastest and heav
iest train that runs. He might reasonably
have counted upon his dynamite to wreck
But It didn't. When the great drivers left
the rails and flashed through space there
was a terrible chance that they would not
return to the rails upon the other side. Just
what the chance was It is Impossible to
know. Study of the subect might reveal
the surprise that If the track were perfectly
straight and 'the train were running fast
enough It would always return to the rails
after leaping a gap of any reasonable
width. , . t
' Upon the other hand. It could have been
a whim of fete that the Meteor was saved.
It might rush upon the same conditions a
thousand times and never repeat the feat
of leaping the gap and escaping with noth
ing more than a few bent rods and a little
The engineer went over the engine care
fully, but he could find no greater damage
than the loss of a cylinder cock. This
slight Injury to the engine was due to the
fact that the explosive force of dynamite
Is downward. An equal explosion of giant
powder would have wrecked the great mo
The only other scratch upon the train
waa a broken window In the baggage car.
It waa smashed by a piece of debris. Who
plotted the destruction of the train and for
what purpose are mysteries. Railroads
have frequent mysteries of this sort.
A few months ago there were such per
sistent and successful attempts to wreck
trains on the Santa Fe lines In Ksnaaa that
a reward of $5,nno was offered for the con
viction of the vandals who were doing the
work. They were never caught, though
the Santa Fe worked In the Held for
months with all the Ingenuity known to
The feat of the Frisco Meteor astounded
the trainmen and the passengers. To look
at the hole blown In the track by the dyna
mite one would ridicule the Idea that a
train could fly across there without Injury.
To be sure, the gap wss not wide, but
even a single yard seems a big matter
when one considers the tremendous weight
of a train, and especially that of a train
drawn by such engines as those that pull

Colored Man Will Not Let Black Cat
Cross His Path.
HIS COMPUNCTIONS CAUSE TROUBLE
Running; from feline He Creates
False Impression In Colored
Woman's Mind and K
plalns la Conrt.
Jerry Blllntt, colored, related before the
people's bar Saturday morning the various
tilings he would stand for before he would
allow a black ret to cross his path at
night. He said he could overlook such
trifles as a gasoline stove explosion, a
broken mirror, opening of an umbrella In
doors, falling while going upstairs, or the
flight of a bird through the window of
his study, but when it csme to a black cat
trying to give him the double cross at
night time, he said he believed It time to
take notice and kill the feline If necessary.
Elliott lives at 11)15 Capitol avenue and
manages a lunch stand in the east end.
Shortly atter midnight Friday Rlllolt was
walking home, viewing the starry firma
ment and fondling the days receipts In
his pocket. While thus deeply absorbed
with the things of earth and sky Elliott s
atentlon was engaged by a large black cat,
which Jumped from an alley and tried to
cross the colored man's path.
The sight of the animal was Immediately
a token for action on Klllott's part. Elliott
set all his sails, threw off his cont snd
rtarted up one side of the street, with the
cat doing the rapid sprint on the other
side. Every time Elliott would stop to
rest tha rat would stop. Finally the tired
lunch man becsme real cross and picked
up Isrge stones, which he hurled at the cat.
A belated colored woman passing at the
time mistook Klllott's intentions snd wildly
called for help. The woman directed her
flight toward the police ststion, with the
rat In close pursuit. F-lliott continued
throwing aolid matter at the cat. Detec
tives Ferris and Dunn, attracted by the
woman's exclamations of dlnturbed thought,
plunged themselves Into tha troubled night
air and caught Elliott. The woman kept
running. Her body was not found. The
est did not succeed In passing Elliott.
When arraigned before the people's bar
Saturday morning Elliott told the police
judge he was more afraid of a black cat
than a corpse.

does." said Elliott when asked If he hnd
anything to say why sentence of the court
should not be pronounced upon him accord

Elliott convinced the court hs was a hard
working man, whose chief weakness was a
fear of black cats.
Elliott was discharged.

A common nail Is an excellent illustra

strips and then forged Into shape with
hammers and an expert took about one and
one-half minutes for each nail. Today they
are made of steel and are lighter and
stronger. Strips are cut with steam shears
and fed into automatic nail machines.
