A GERMAN TAKES A SNOOZE WHICH
LASTS SIXTEEN YEARS.
Winona Minn. July 6. This whole
country is stirred up over the awaken-
ing of Herman Harms known as the
Minnesota sleeper who has been tak-
ing a sixteen years' nap. He is very
much emaciated but appears to be
entirely rational and there is hope that
he may recover. The case is a most
peculiar and uncommon one; one that
has baffled the skill of the best physi-
cians. It is also one that presents a
vast field for research. Mr. Harms
lives on a farm a few miles north of
St. Charles Minn. He was born in
Germany in 1838. He was married
to Miss Buseman in 1863 and
his faithful wife has guarded him.
through all these years of torpidity.
Some sixteen years ago he was at-
tacked by a fever and had intense
pains shooting through his head. His
physician recommended him to movo
to a colder climate Minnesota. He
accordingly moved to this state thir-
teen years ago. During his stay in
Illinois he did not sleep all the time
but since he came here he has slept all
of the time except an interval of a
year anv a half beginning with 1881
and two months of 1889 and 1890.
When he was sleeping he could only
be awakened by his wife touching him
on the head. Calling had no effect on
him. He took no nourishment at all
to speak of and then only when
aroused from his comatose condition
HAS JOE THE JIMJAMS ?
HE DISCOVERS A SKELETON OF THE
MYTHICAL RACE OF CYCLOPi.
Buzzard's Bay Mass. July 6.
Joseph Jefferson the actor has made
an astonishing find on the summer
place which he has purchased here
near that of President Cleveland. In
laying out the ground and making
alterations it became necessary to re-
move a sand hill of large size. The
workmen while doing this found the
skeleton of a man that filled them
with astonishment from its great size.
When an attempt was made to lift up
the skeleton it crumbled away all
except the skull. A workman laid
down by the side of it however and it
was estimated that it must have be-
longed to a man at least 6 feet and 5 or
8 inches in height. The most peculiar
thing brought to light however
when the skull was taken to Mr. Jeff-
erson and by him examined. It was
like ordinary skulls only larger ex-
cept that it had so far as could be
seen no place where the eyes had
been. There was one hole in the cen-
ter of the forehead that might have
once served for one eye. This led Mr.
Jefferson to believe that he had per-
haps discovered the skeleton of a
cyclops. Mr. Booth who was paying
Mr. Jefferson a visit said when he
saw the wonderful skull that he and
his brother actor had a chance at hand
to play "Hamlet" with a skull such as
it had never been played with before.
All the scientific gentlemen in the
neighborhood have been as unable to
give an explanation of the skull as
were Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Booth.
Mr. Jefferson will no doubt be glad to
receive suggestions from men of science
that may throw light on the matter.
Kino Fisher O. T. July 7. United
States District Judge A. J. Searcy
rendered a decision today which if
sustained will have an important
bearing on the site of the Cherokee
outlet. After the removal of the
Cherokee Live Stock association from
the Cherokee strip the Cherokees
placed about 30000 head of cattle on
the land. By executive orders issued
through the war department these
were being removed by troops. A
decision was rendered this afternoon
adverse to the Cherokee title and if
sustained virtually extinguishes all
ngnts or me Unerokees to tne laud.

Galveston July 7. The party sent
out to recover the bodies of Robert
Frankovich Frank Miltovitch Pete
Strangle Jack Speech and "George"
who were drowned off South Point
during the gale Sunday night re-
turned this evening with the body of
Pete Strangle which had been washed
up and lodged on a reef and upon
which an inquest will be held tomor
The searching party made a
thorough examination of tho waters
in and around South Point
and spent the gi eater ' part of
the day diving in the vincinity
of where the fishing sloop capsized
but to no purpose. They returned to
night to renew the search early in the
morning by direction of Sheriff Tier-
nan who is making every effort to re
cover the bodies.
Vincent Sagovich sole survivor of
the crew of the six that manned the
sloop says that when the storm came
up tney were lying at ancnor in
a cove inside of the point with
sails reefed anchors out and everything
made taut to weather the gale. They
passed safely through the storm of
Saturday night and Sunday but
when the terrific squ ill came Sunday
night about 9 o'clock it fairly lifted
the little vessel out of
the water and drove her
with tremendous fury out into East

shore in an exhausted and almost

he kept a sharp lookout for his unfor-

Georgetown July 7. One of the
best lectures yet heard from our plat-
form was delivered last evening by Dr.
Coke Smith of Nashville on the sub
ject of "Labor." Labor he says is
the basis of intelligent life. Every
thing in nature works often silently
but surely and steadily toward the ac
complishment of its mission. He
thinks every man has a work in the
world for which he is specially fitted
and if he can only find the right
thing though it be the carpenter's
trade that man is as surely called by
God as though he were called to
preach the gospel. Work is a law of
nature and brings happiness if it is the
work for which you have aptitude.
High valuation was placed upon every
class of every honest manual labor
but it is tne great thinkers at last that
move tne world of Droizress. Dr.
Smith thinks it a miscouception of the
idea of heaven to suppose it a place of
perpetual idleness and aimlessness.
He believes with Mrs. Browning who
says: "1 count that heaven itself is
only work to a surer issue."
rrof. Pettit ha9 organized a vocal
class in elementary sight sinciug.
The chorus continues to improve in

Waelder Tex. July 7. For some
time there has been exlsing an old

Henry Lauch and family .
On yesterday Ball went over to the
field where his father-in-law and two
sons were at work gave them an
abusing and told them he was going

two sons left the field and

not findir. g them at the field he went
to the house and opened fire with a
double-barreled shotgun on the old

work perfect. At 4 o'clock Slocum
walked into the death room accompan

be making tremendous efforts to keep
his composure. He had received Fath-
er Creden's last office and had declar-
ed himself ready to die. He was then
firmly strapped into the chair and the
death current turned on. Death was
instantaneous. There was a sudden
contraction of the nerves and then all

The witnesses were besieged by the
reporters as soon as they made their
appearance from the prison. All of
them refused to say anything how-
ever except that the executions had
passed off without any hitch and bad
Jbeen a success. Warden Brown had
laid strict injunction of secrecy upon
all and had evidently made such an
impression on their minds that they
were loth to talk. All looked thor-
oughly used up and exhausted. They
had been through a terrible ordeal
and the effects were plainly visible.
E.A. Brown purchasing agent of
the state prison said that there was
no doubt that the executions were ab-
solutly painless. "The horse killed

The witnesses to the execution gath-
ered at the prison in response to the
warden's invitation half an hour be-

law authorized twelve and all were
present.. The law does not require
their presence but only says that a
certain number shall be invited.
Warden Brown bad declined to permit
representatives of the press to have
access either as witnesses or an associ-

before the execution that the facts
must be obtained from private citi-
zens who had been invited.
