Some of the Latest Wayi of Attracting-
HEROICS OF MORBID MINDS
People Without Asylum Prlrllvsres
Make F.x trnorrilasrr Attempts
to Do Something err
W'hen Herman Llndeman, the foreman
of a Chicago printing establishment, and
Miss Ella Ziaier. to whom he was engaged
to be married, quietly slipped away from
Chicago a few days ago, they apparently
had all their plans laid to create a sensa
tion. They had confided to a few of their
closest friends before leaving that they
were going to Elkhart, Ind.. to be mar
ried. They didn't want a church wedding,
they said. They preferred something more
romantic, a quiet wedding, but with all
the trimmings of nn elopement.
So they eloped, but instead of going to
Elkhart they went to St. Joseph. Mich.,
where an obliging Justtce of the peace
made them man and wife. Early the next
morning they alighted from the train at
South Hend, Ind., went direct to the ho
tel where they had engaged a room ahead
by telegraph, took breakfast, walked
down to the St. Joseph river and appar
ently committed suicide In a most delib
erate and novel manner.
First they engaged a small rowboat at
a wharf on the river bank where pleasure
boats are kept for hire. Llndeman steppej
In, gallantly helped his wife aboard, took
the oars and headed for the dam neat-
Island park, a pleasure resort a mile or so
As the small boat neared the dam men
and women on the Island and on the river
banks were alarmed to see Llndeman cast
aalde the oars and stand up, allowing the
curret to sweep the boat onward to de
struction. Ills wife stood up, too, and
Lindeman put his arm around her to sup
port her. Both seemed heedless of the
warnings that were being shouted at them
to row for their lives. Instead of making
any effort to save himself or his wife
Lindeman coolly lighted a cigarette and
waved It at the panic-stricken people on
iie river bank. As for his wife she rested
her head on his shoulder and Waited for
A few momenta later the rowboat
reached the brink of the dam. The young
couple were laughing and talking. Then
the boat went down over the edge and
was found some time afterward over
turned and slowly floating down stream.
The bodies of Llndeman and his wife were
not recorered until late that night.
If Mr. and Mrs. Llndeman went to
Bouth Bend with the deliberate Intention
of committing suicide together, and there
Is every evidence that they did, they cer
tainly selected a novel and most tragic
way In which to take their own lives.
Mantle of Myaterr Falls.
But more remarkable still was the way
In which Douglas Sherrln Frith Panton, a
London solicitor ended his life at a lonely
spot on the rocky coast of Cornwall a
few weeks earlier. His dead body man
acled hand and foot and dressed In wom
an's attire was found on the rocks at
the foot of the cliffs at Mousehole, a vil
lage close to Penxance and not far from
the spot where John Davidson, the poet,
recently disappeared under most mysterl
Douglas Panton was 35 years of age
and a grandson of W. P. Frith, the
famous artist. On the day previous to the
finding of his body Panton arrived at
Penzance by train from London, and reg
istered" at the Queen's hotel as "D. Plat-
ten, London." His luggage conaisted of a
brown leather suit case,- which he guarded
carefully and insisted on carrying to his
That evening he went out for a walk,
taking a big paper bundle with him. Later
lie waa seen walking along the cliff near
Mousehole, a picturesque fishing hamlet
about three miles from Penxance. He still
had his paper bundle with him. This
was the last time he waa seen alive. He
did not return to his hotel that night.
On the following evening a boy wander-'
lng along the cliff spied what appeared to
be a woman's body, fully dressed, lying
among the rocks close to the water. When
the police" and the coast guard reached the
place they made an extraordinary dis
covery. There were handcuffs fastened to
the wrists and ankles of the woman. To
add to their amazement, the woman had
close cropped hair and a beard. The body
was later Identified by Philip N. Panton,
of London, as that of his brother Douglas.
Scattered along the top of the cliff near
where the body was found the police ploked
up a pair of trousers, one shoe, a walking
stick, a bracelet set with paste diamonds,
a waistcoat, a linen shirt, a pair of cuff
links and a collar and te. These had evi
dently been discarded by Panton In favor
of the other clothea In which the body was
found. Theae comprised n brown Jacket
with black braid round the bottom, a crepe
de chine petticoat edged with lace, a blue
motor veil, a cashmere blouse, black stock
ings, corsets, undtrllnen and a pair of
lady'a high-heeled shoes.
It Is supposed by the police who Investi
gated this remarkable ease that Panton
changed his clothing at the top of the
cliff, adjusted the handcuffs to his ankles
and wrists and then either Jumped or
fell to his death. The fall killed htm.
Death was not due to drowning, although
tha body had been submerged at high tide
In the night. The body had been pre
vented from being washed out to sea by a
protecting rock behind which it had
Panton waa a rising young barrister,
single and fairly well to do. He had not
been considered eccentric, and no reason
why he should want to take his life hss
yet been discovered. But that he did take
it there appears to be no doubt, and when
he committed auiclde he sought, like Mr.
and Mrs. Llndeman, a new way In which
to do It.
But the craze to do something now la
not confined to those of a morbid turn of
mind. Imagine a man eating twelve spoon
fuls of sand, partly because he likes sand
and partly to win a wager of . J. M. Hub
bard, an architect of St. Joseph. Mo., has
a theory that ordinary building sand, eaten
! " vrr bcnefic.a. effect
i on the human system. At least he says he
'h" 'oun " I" blr own case. Mr. Hub-
! brl In Minneapolis on business last
month, and while chatting with some trav
ellng men In the hoiel he ventured to ex
press his opinion of the medicinal value of
building sand. Nobody seemed to agree
with him. Nobody even set-med to believe
that tbe architect ever ate any of tt.
M. Hubbard offered to eat a dozen
spoonfuls of sand Just to prove that he
knew what he waa talking about. Then
William Brand, the hotel clerk, bet him
IS that he couldn't do any such thing. The
traveling men seemed to think that such s

Married In a balloon and by wireless
telephone la the latest word in unusual
marriages. Carey A. Beebe of Seattle and
Miss Margaret A. Hall of Lewlstoti, Mont.,
both taken with the craze to do something
new and original, were married that way
at Seattle a couple of weeka ago. In the
basket when the balloon sailed skyward
were only tha engaged couple. The balloon
waa equipped with a double telephone sys
tem of the wireless vsriety. The wireless
operator waa on the ground below, sur
rounded by bridesmaids, the brst man,
other attendants and the relatives of the
young man. An Episcopal minister. Dr.
Hundstrom, was also present to officiate
at this very odd wedding ceremony.
While the balloon was sailing away tho
wedding ceremony proceeded. The minister
read the marriage service and asked Xlr.
Beebe and Miss Hall the usual questions
by wireless telephone, and their replies
were promptly received. After the cere
mony was ended and the newly wedded
pair had received congratulations and
kisses by wireless telephone, Mr. Beebe
opened the big valve In the top of the
balloon and they descended In safety to be
overwhelmed with more congratulations
At Los Angeles, Cat., Mra. Lillian M
Hoag has broken all records by fasting
for fortv-nlne days. The highest known
previous record was that of Etta Prlsclll.i
Grove, a Chicago school teacher, who
fasted at Long Beach forty-one days aj
year ago. 1
Mrs. Hoag's fast was broken a fen
days ago when she "dined" with her J
brother. Her first "meal" consisted of a
small canteloupe. This long period of ab
stinence was due to Illness that the woman
hoped to overcome by refraining from food
of any kind. The result was even more
wonderful than she herself hoped for.
Throughout this long fast Mrs- Hoag
did her own .housework and washing,
cooked the home meals and periormeu
all the tasks of a housekeeper. Rising every
morning at 4:30 o'clock she was active
until between 9 and W o'clock at night,
when she retired to aound sleep.
Romantic engagements and even happy
marriages have resulted from notes writ
ten on eggs, boxes, wrappers or hidden In
goods consigned to far-off cities. The
latest romance of this kind, and possioiy
the most unusual, will culminate within
the next few days In the wedding of
Joseph Law of Sioux City to Miss Mary
Klngsley of Tilllngley, Conn. About u
year ago, In a spirit of fun, she wrote a
note on a coffin in the factory whera she
ia employed, wrapped it around the han
dle of the coffin and then waited to see
what happened. The casket In due course
reached the Weatcot undertaking estab
lishment at Sioux City, where Mr. Law
la employed. He found the note inclosed
in the tissue paper wrapping covering one
of the handles. He answered it. Miss
Klngsley replied and the correspondence
soon grew so serious that after an ex
change of photographs the pair announced
their engagement. New York World.
FREAK LAWS IN THE MAKING
Georgia. Glvee Kanaaa a. Cloae
for tke Eccentric First
Tha commonwealth of Georgia is not to
be despised as a contestant In the peren
nlal freak-law competition. Representa
tlve Wright of Stewart county suffered
great mental anguish at the sight of a
pretty girl a-horseback, comfortably
perched in an army saddle, riding In the
manner which the army saddle require.
Hence a bill making riding astride felo
nious. Kven the divided skirt Is not lo
constitute a sufficient defetis.
But If Georgia is after the palm it must
think a little harder. How can it hope lo
compete with Oklahoma, wnere a noioi
may not use any "cup, dish, vessel or re
ceptacle for food that has cracks visible
to the naked eye," and may not cover
any bed with a sheet leas than nine feet
long; where Senator Landrum s bill pro
tects the feelings of the aborigines by for
bidding the use of wooden Indians aa cigar
store signs under penalty of 150 and six
months' Imprisonment? Kansas will still
be a few laps ahead with Its acts forbid
ding drinking on railway trains and the
running of motor vehicles at Illegal rates
of speed, except by a "political chauffeur,"
who may "run an automoblllus band wagon
at any rate ha sees fit compatible with
the safety of the occupants thereof."
In Illinois a bill was Introduced "to es
tablish a new mathematical truth vis:
squaring of tha circle. A western legis
lator has endeavored to make It unlawful
for any druggist to sell a patent medicine
unless there be affixed in a conspicuous
place in his store an affidavit stating that
he haa tried one bottle of the mixture and
experienced no harmful effects therefrom."
Another has sought to have It declared
under pains and penalties that every hotal
menu should be printed In English, another
that avery saloon must have a red light In
front with the word "Danger" inscribed
thereon, while still another act provides
that "It shall be unlawful to discharge any
rifle or revolver In the public highway un
less to kill soma wild, ferocious or danger
ous beat, or an officer in discharge of his
duty." In the Lone Star State It Is sol
emnly enacted that "tha skies of Texas

TRAIN HELD UP BY BEES
Insects Swarm In Hpont of Water
Tank and Fltat tho
Swarming bees are credited with doing
all sorts of unusual things, but probably
this Is the first time that a queen and her
retinue and subjects completely tied up o
steam road. It happened on the Harrlman
system at Twin Falla, Idaho, a few daya
ago, when a lusty swarm accomplished
what the national eongreaa, James J. Hill
and other well organized agencies have
failed to do.
E. R. Ferguson, a traveling salesman .if
Chicago, who was an eye witness, brought
the story to Spokane. He said in describ
ing the Incident:
"Tin dlshpana, tom-toms, whistles and
other recognized lures failed to dislodge the
swarm, which had settled In the spout of
the standpipe at the water tank, where a
long train of freight cars atood on the main
line without sufficient water In the boiler
of the big mogul to pull out. The driver
and fireman did excellent teamwork in try
ing to reach the pipe, but the bees gave
them short ahrift and the men refused 'o
make the second attempt.
"H. A. Swab, an expert on bee lore, bote
down upon the scene to capture the swarm
He was armed with a nail keg and two
long slicks. He sent his helper to coax the
bees Into the kg. but in less than alx sec
onds the aasiatant had a acore of active
beea en hla aleevea. and he made a dash
toward the railway station. Swab also ie
