The Dv that Races With ft Train.
Danbury Oct.9 -James Griffin lias a
small terrier dog that is surprising the
people ot this town by his abilities as a
runner fevery evening during the
summer when the 6:45 train from the
west blew its whistle a few rods from
the Main street crossing the dog would
bound out of the house near by and
take the track ahead of the train for
for the station half mile away. The
train crosses Main street at the
rate of fifteen miles an hour and be
tween the crossing and the station is a
trestle about 300 ieet long. Over this
the dog flies always keeping lust so
far ahead of the train slacking his
speed as the air breakes are applied
and coming into the station at the
same distance ahead of the train as he
took when he started the race. Once
or twice the engineer has put on steam
to try and overtake the dog but he
has not yet succeeded in doing it. The
dog never looks back never breaks
and never pays any attention to call of
his master. When he reaches the
station he looks up at the engineer
gives two or three yelps and quietly
trots home up the track 1 his perform
ance is repeated with unfailing regu
larity and if an effort is made to keep
him in the house at train lime he raises
an u learthly yelping. It is the custom
now for crowds to gather to see the ex-
Horned to Death.

to death with the exception of the
husband who was so seriously burned
that he will probably die at their
home last night. A tramp who was
spending the night with them was
also burned to death. The origin of
the hre is unknown but the supposi
tion is that Richter had been drink
ing and it is supposed that he may
have got to sleep while smoking and
the fire thus originated. It was not
discovered until the the inmates were

Aa Appeal Newspaper Men.
Savannah Ga. Oct. 9. At a meet-
ing of newspaper men in the city held
to-day it was resolved to raise a fund
for the benefit of the family of the late
Edward Martin the editor of the Jack-
sonville (Fla.) Tiroes-Union who died
in that city Sunday oi yellow fever.
His sense of duty to his paper was the
only consideratien which influenced
him in remaining at.his post. For six-
teen years he had been connected with
the editorial and mechanical depart-
ments of the daily and weekly jour-
nals and his case therefore appeals
to the men in every branch oi news
paper work. Every newspaper office
in the country is requested to raise a
fund among its men and remit at the
earliest day convenient to J. H. Estil
chairman of the Martin Memorial com-
mittee Savannah Ga. The money
already subscribed in Savannah offi-
ces amount to over $300.

Ateon Affalnat the Sugar Trims.
New York Oct. 9 Judge O'Brien
of the supreme court to-day granted
permission to State Attorney-General
Chas. Tabor to bring action against
the Havemeyer & Elder Sugar Refin-
ing company to annul its charter.
This company with thirteen others is
a member of the sugar trust combina-
tion. The attorney-general has ap-
pointed General Roger A. Pryor as
counsel to rep.eient him in this mat-
ter. Edward H. Scntehen makes the
principal affidavit in the case. He re-
cites that the sugar trust was formed
in August 1887 for the purpose arbi-
trarily of controlling the manufacture
and sale of sugar increasing its price
and controlling the management of all
refineries. In October last a trust
deed was executed to the Havemeyer
refinery. The affidavit Mates that the
combination has suspended and closed
several refineries connected with the
trust and has thrown out of employ-
ment and reduced to want a large
number of workingmen. I he combi-
nation it is alleged is a monopoly
and a crimial conspiracy under the
laws of the state of New York and is
oppressive to its people and detriment-
al to the welfare of the state of New
York and the United States. The de
fendants have violated the law trans
cended its powers forfeited its char-
ter and become liable to be dissolved.
The object of the suit is to annull the
corporate existence ot the company
and to vacate its charter upon the
ground that it has violated the act un-
der which it was incorporated and has
exercised a privilege and franchise not
conferred upon it b; law.
Ad Adjournment or Ilereis.
Washington Oct. 9 An informal
conference of republican senators was
held this morning to talk over the gen-
eral situation and more especially to
arrange the course of debate on the
tariff bill. 'I he results were meager
owing to whether a quorum of the
senate can be ha J in Washington
should the tariff be protracted beyond
next week. No action was taken in
conference and no definite policy was
sketched but there is every reason to
believe that if the senate finds itself
for any length of time without a quor-
um an adjournment sine die or a re-
cess for several weeks will be taken.
It therefore now seems probable that
the session wilt practically come to an
end next week cr early the week after
and that the tariff bill will be left for
final action after election day.

THE CHALET BY THE RIVER.
By the rlrer's rippling flow
When the soft winds fragrant blow
And tho shodowi stretch below;
Where the Oshea come and go
And tho stately swan birds fare
In the green and sonny ware
My Ioto and I together
'Mid golden summer weather
Laughed and sang the hoars away.
W hero tho sunshlno dreaming lay
In the Chalet by the rrrerl
Thcro we watched each IltUe boat
0.ayly laden past us float;
As no heard each mellow note
l'rotn tho song bird's downy throat
Trilling all tho long day through
'Neath the hazy summer bine
Whrm the cloud boats idly fly
O't r the rlrcr of the sky
In cnir hearts deep rapture sank
As from Ioto's sweet cup we drink
In the Chalet by the rirerl
When the tnmlcr gloaming fell
With shadowy mystla spell
Oicr river Tale and dell.
In deep solitude to dwell
My lore and I fond plighted
Our tows In bllu united
Whllo our hearts sweet rhythm kept
as 1 no moonnunt soruy crept
81 ly through tho latticed roll
Uit'nlng to loro's happy tale
In tho Chalet by the rivorl
Anna Comtesse do Bremont.
Progress In Central Asia.
As an illustration of progress in cen-
tral Asia it may bo mentioned that while
a few years ago tho traveler was likely
to bo killed by tho natives ho is now In
greater danger of being smashed up in a
railroad accident. A train on tho Trans-
Casplan road was upset a few weeks ago
near Satnarcand and flvo people killed.
They happened to bo train hands and
Europeans but had thoy been Moham-
medan pilgrims who now employ this
modern method of expediting thoir jour-
noy to Mecca thero might have been a
great outcry against this infidel inven-
tion for killing off tho faithful. Tho in-
troduction ot collisions on tho Central
Asian railroad ill make tourists thought-
ful for such occurrences rcmoto from
civilized comforts havo their great dla-
advantagca. Now York Sun.
Ono Way to Catch Monkeys.
A ruso mentioned ns successful in tho
capture of theso imitative animals does
not however bear upon it tho stamp of
probability. It consists of placing a basin
of strong bait water before a party of wild
monkeys. Tho 'sportsman" then retiree
a couple of dozen yards and having pro-
vided himself with a similar bowl of clear
water pioeceds to rub it on his face and
eyes. His actions nro closely followed
by the nnimnk with tho result that tho
strong brino so effectually blinds them
for tho time that thoy may bo easily
noosed and secured. Wo hoard this from
an old sailor who had seen it done.
Onco a Week.
To Prevent Itollwny Collisions.
An Australian is said to havo designed
u truck to bo run beforo every train at
an adjustablo distance by an electrlo
current transmitted fiom a dynamo on
tho engine. U tho truck comes in col-
lision with any body in front oertaln
glass tubes in which tho current is con-
ducted'uru broken. Tho cunent is thus
broken and at tho samo moment tho
brakes of tho train nro automatically ap-
plied. This may or may not be a work-
ing discovery still thcro is sure to be
801110 method cro long for making high
speed travel almost absolutely secure.
Looking at a Dried Tear.
Tho principal element in tho composi-
tion of a tear as may readily bo sup-
posed is water. Tho other elements are
salt soda phosphato of lime phosphate
of soda and mucus each in small pro-
portions. A dried tear seen through a
microscopo of good average power pre-
sents a peculiar appearance. The water
after ovajwration leaves behind it tho
saline ingredients which amalgamate
and form themselves into lengthened
cross lines and look liko a number of
nilnuto fish bones. Good Housekeeping.
Ethical Tendency of Tennis.
