the form of a woman lying face downward dead and the body frozen fifty yards south of the stand and Oil Companys yards Marshal Bur ries was informed at once of the mur ler After some fine detective

yards from the jail door and was hanged to the same limb a ne- gro was hanged eight years ago for at tempting to rape a white woman of the neighborhood It is the general supposition that the negro was dead before he was hanged from the effects of the pistol shots The mob quietly dispersed after fin ishing its work leaving the body hanging within a few inches of the ground The authorities were

Came to th Ala of the PInkIIalrcd d Stenographer The Broadway car was approaching Thirteenth street relates theNew YorK Sun fforwardti with a meeklyrstanding women with his folded newspaper Then he rose with a mighty sigh and moved toward the door while his grateful beneficiary dropped Jnto the vacated seat A pink haired stenographer not rav Uhingly pretty who clung to a strap Immediately In front viewed the incident with surprise and afterward assumed a contemptuous smile Then the car lurched into Dead Mans Curve and she swung out on the strap like Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight Her lips moved busily for a lasting arch of scorn The mean man seated opposite was iI interested Over the top of his paper he observed these facial changes of the pink haired stenographer and he noted their cause with fiendish pleasure The passenger beside him was folding his paper and buttoning his coat As the passenger rose the mean man touched the arm of a woman standing next the pink haired stenographer and drew her attention to the vacant seat The pink haired stenographer looked over her shoulder with a glance of amazement and hatred Then she saw the mean mans expression and under stood that he had acted with malice aforethought She turned her back squarely crimson to the tips of her ears The mean man exulted inwardly Watching the seated passengers nar rowly he was enabled to repeat this performance twice more each time landing another tired woman in a seat and leaving the pink haired stenographer still clinging to the strap In the opposite window he could see her face reflected and her lips wereset in a danger ous line The supply of standing passengers was depleting The mean man began to look worried Then came the influx from the crosstown line Thirtyfourth street and business seemed to be picking upThe new arrivals were crowding up the aisle when suddenly the pink haired stenographer abandoned her strap with a curious gleam In her eye Wedging herself sinuously Into the advancing mass she brought it to a struggling pause Just in front of where the mean man sat- There was a wild swaying and shuffling in which the pink haired stenographers gray Jacket mingled vaguely Then the car started amid a confusion of out stretched arms and the mean mans hat was knocked from his head far Into the aisle t He sprang forward to save It from certain destruction and was back In a second and he found the pink haired Itenogra otrt bltsettlpd IlvslMSHBilBM ularchhadvantshe from fctrJIB nkewise the dangerous line and her eyes looked beyond the mean man in a gaze of

for dragging a lobster story in J canat leastjclalm that much of the contention between the French and the English over the French shore difficulty in Newfoundland hinges upon the point as to whether or not a lobster is a fish since tile French fishermen claim the right to build lobster fac tories on the treaty coast in virtue of the clause of the treaty authorizing them to erect buildings for drying their fish The fisherman In this case was one of the whiteheaded eagles popularly known In Newfoundland as a grip Tho story Is told by Col Haggard with whom I visited Newfoundland a few years ago in search of salmon says a writer in Forest and Stream John Stroud one of our guides and I says the colonel were sitting on the rocks by the seashore watching tho grip soar Ing around In circles when suddenly we saw him dash Into a pool of water close by us on the beach npd reappear holding an enormous lobster in his tal ons He was an old lobster with a huge claw white with barnacles shin ing white in the sunlight Only for a second though The ripples on the recently disturbed pool had not yet died away the large drops of water had not ceased to fall upon Its surface from the soaring eagles feathers nUll the captive lobster alike when the latter suddenly awoke to the seriousness of the situation and to think with that apparently helpless creature was to act for he was a lobster of action Up came the great white barnacled claw and seized the eagle around the neck The grip had pot the grip now with a vengeance There was a furious fluttering and beating of his wings a mel ancholy squawk from his choking throat and then tumbling and rolling hetfd over hcelSrftr the air in a con fused mass down came eagle and lob ster again splash Into the pool We rushed forward thinking that we could perhaps In some way secure both combatants as the splashing of the conflict continued In the shallow water But we had hardly time to pick up a rock apiece to heave at the eagle before the lobster feeling himself at home again let go his hold Now with his nock all torn and devoid of feathers away flew the bedraggled eagle to a neighboring cliff while still brand ishing his enormous claw In defiance the lobster remained smiling at the bottom of the pool But the grip will doubtless tell you If you meet him that the lobster fishing in Newfound land Is very poor at present and that he Is going to give It up as the game Is hardly worth the candle ERRORS IN ILLUSTRATIONS They Are Very Enll Uncle and In of Xe cRPnIecr Work Aimwt- Unnvoldnble Perfection or detail said the car toonist according to the Philadelphia Record Is very rare In the making of pictures whether they be painted on canvas by the great masters or drawn In line by the men who illustrate the daily newspapers It is the general ef fect that tells There are few newspaper picturesand I dont exclude my own In which you cant pick some flaw from the standpoint of realism In the hurried effort of the newspaper artist who counts the minutes by the clock there may be some excuse for this but when we see a man carving a turkey lefthanded on the cover bf a maga zine we must agree that the artist has either been careless or else has em ployed a lefthanded model to pose for him and the latter solution is scarcely probable A fisherman landing a trout on a light rod with never a finger oh the reel is quite a common mistake among magazine illustrations and In the matter of costumes of various pert ods the Illustrators are woefully lack ing In Information- To Illustrate how apt we are to make mistakes

the shrunken limbs the gaunt face the ribs protruding through the skin and above all the hollow cavity where th stomach should have been A friend of mine a doctor took me to tas about It Persons who are starving to death he said may be abnormally emaciated in every other part of the body except the stomach The abdomen in the advanced stages Is expandedl with gases until it puffs up like balloon giving the victim a grotesqueI appearance To substantiate thi I statement he showed me some photo graphs taken In India during a famine and I was forced to admit that he wasI right Lighter Than Cork

Equipped to Determlue Where We Are in the Unlverllet While the political world has bees discussing the course of British trade astronomers have been equipping an ex pedition which Is If possible to solve the question whether we are all free traders and protectionists alike with the sun and the rest of the planets rushing through space at the speed of 45000 miles an hour In the direction ofth strut thlslquestlonof our position In the general scheme of the universe The study of many+ facts in astronomy has tended toward the im pression that tho earth is but a grain on the sand beach of space Other recent accumulations of facts however seem to Indicateas Dr Wallace the veteran colleague of Darwin has polntcdout- that the earth occupies unique and cen tral position in the visible universe In this very vital discussion It Is of Im portance to know whetherwe are moving away from the apparently central posi tion in the plane of tho Milky Way with a speed which Is great or negligible and In what direction we are moving To gather accurate facts concerning this movement Prof W W Campbell director of the Lick observatory has sent out an expedition to Santiago de Chill whose mission it Is to measure the velocity of 300 or 400 of the brighter stars in the quarter of the sky surrounding the south polo for the only way In which wo become aware of the flight of the solar system Is by watching the counter move ment of the stars We are like says Prof Serviss passengers on the deck of a ship moving swiftly throw a crowded harbor The direction ind velocity of our

aro almost Infinitely far away ahd tho change In their brightness resulting from an approach to those In the north and our retreat from those in the south Is too slight to be noticed oven from year to year But luckily the waves of light do the work for us The light of the stars toward which we are going has Its un dulation practically shortened by our swift approach and the lIght of those which we are leaving behind has Its un dulations practically lengthened and the spoctroscope not only detects these changes In thoUght waves but e ableus by thHr means to measure the rate ofour motion and also

will be of Interest here to quote Dr Wallaces conclusion The three startling facts that we are in the center of a cluster of suns and that the Cluster situated not only precisely In the IsIof the

sportsmen and the seekers after rest and recreation Many of the hearts and birds which abounded in plain and wood in this coun try a short time ago arc doomed to as early extinction unless the state and federal governments take the proper steps to assure protection Except for the few head still remaining In public or private reservations the buffalo has been practically wiped out of existence For some unaccountable reason civilization took a prejudice to this noble animal Its value was never glen a lair test udtil within recent years It has now been found that the buffalo pro pagates quickly grows rapidly Is hardy and selfsustaining upon the plains its hide makes fine leather and Its flesh Iseequal In flavor and strength given qual fides to that of ordinary beet In fact the buffalo Is the

FOUND HIS MATCH ColCBrI Judge Marcus Kavanagh of the su parlor court used to be colonel of the Seventh regiment the famous Irish regl ment of the Illinois National Guard Sc strict was the rule of admission to the regiment that before a man was placed on the muster roll he was obliged tc prove his nationality This proof wastsecured by sending the candidate In charge of a corporals guard to thewind swept corner of the Masonic temple HE was also given a pipe full of tobacco and ff- a single match If standing at the cor nero ho was able to light his pipe with the one match he was adjudged worthy of admission to the regiment I During the SpanishAmerican war Col Kavanagh took his regiment into camp yearning for active service There was a private in the regiment named Casey Casey was In a way the butt of the regiment He was always getting Into trouble and his native Irish wit was always getting him out again The regiment wanted to do some fight ing and Its members chafed against the t confinement and strIct discipline 01tintcamp life All sorts of excuses were pre sented by members who wanted to bewshipped back to Chicago for a few days Col Kavanagh got to be sadly cnlcalII One day Private Casey managed tc slip by the sentinel in front of Col Kav anaghs tent and presented himself be fore his commanding officer with hll right hand at salute Colonel said Casey Casey said the Colonel Me wife is lyin1 at tho point av death In Chicago said Casey rubbing hit eyes with his coat sleeve Im after leave av abslnce Col Kavanagh looked at Casey and Ca sey looked at the colonel There

HrRtnnlnfl to Learn That Women Are Kent 3Hlkcr A big dairy farmer was talking aboutta Polish farm hand who had been In this country only three months and had proved himself to be far above the aver age laborer at nearly every kind of farm work on the farm I never saw a better l man in the field ho said than Stanis laus I hear ho has done a mans work on a farm since he was 12 years old but he has never milked a cow The New 7 York Sun gives the farmers views ID fInthe women to do If a Polish peasant man is seen milking he is asked if he has forgotten to put on his petticoat Stan islaus says he Is perfectly willing tc learn but I dont know that he will make a good milker willing as he Is Many American farmers seem tc think that almost anybody can milk but our dairymen are beginning to learn bet tor A milker must be clean and ho must be quiet and gentle An expert milkci must have one other very important qualification he must be quick The quicker the milking the richer the milk If the work Is done well and completely I am inclined to think that it might be better for our American dairy Inter ests if milking were a part of women work as it Is In many European coun- trIes The dairymen of England are do Ing everything they can to perpetuate the custom of employing women instead of men as milkers and to maintain the efficiency of the milkmaids We never hear of a dairy show In England nowadays without Its popular milking contest in which the milkmaid contest with one another These con tests are the talk of the British dairy districts and are proving to be very use fut I shall not be surprised if In the course of the next ten years the milk maids of America become very muct more numerous Perhaps a lot of prize winning maids of England should bE Imported to arouse the emulation of tbei American sisters Old ARC Pension Under the old age pension law of Neat Zealand a person to draw a pension must be G5 years of age and must save resided in New Zealand for the
