A Printer's Curious Theft.
Twenty years ago the Cincinnati,
Hamilton un<l Indiana Railroad com-
pany issued a lot of bonds payable in
1IX):}. The bonds were for $1,000, with
interest at 7 per cent, per annum, pay-
able semiannually. The printing was
£one in Cincinnati, and the coupons were
presented in New York for payment.
Ft* a long time the officers of the com-
pany have been satisfied that there was
something wrong in the bond deal, but
were nnable to find out what it was
until a f^v days ago.
When the coupon of bond No. 3,319
was presented for payment at the New
York office the first of this month it was
noticed that the number was written in
blue ink instead of red ink, as was used
on tko other coupons. The coupon was
sent from 208 Forquer street, Chicago
and was payable to S. A. Brewer.
The auditor of the road went to Chi-
cago and reported the matter at the cen-
tral station. Friday wight detectives ar-
A special from Chicago says: "Brewer
admitted having sent the coupon to New
York, but that M. A. Reed had the
bond. Reed was arrested and the bond
found in his possession. Both men are
printers, employed in Chicago. Reed
said he was employed in the office in
Cincinnati where the bonds were printed
20 years ago and had stolen one of them.
He forged the signatures of the officers
of the road to the bond and had success-
fully collected the interest on the cou-
pons during all of these years. The
amount of interest collected on the stolen
bond by Reed amounts to $1,435. The
men will be taken back to Cincinnati to
stand trial."—Cincinnati Commercial-
A Great Scheme.
A party of eastern capitalists said to
have some connection with the Santa Fe
railroad system is visiting the Grand
canyon of Colorado river for the pur-
pose of investigating the feasibility of
laying an electric cable 600 miles in
length along the river, with which to
drive small boats through the Black can-
yon and other scenic points, where cliffs
over a mile in height overhang the
stream. The power is to be generated
by water wheels driven by the current
of the river, or the water will be divert-
ed into canals and dropped into the river
A copper wire cable will be suspended
over the center of the river, which is for
the most part about 300 feet in width,
and electric power will be conveyed to
small boats similar to the manner of
running electric railways. The idea is
that this will become the most popular
route for tourist travel.
Another, and the main feature of the
scheme, is to convey the surplus power
down the river, where it will be used for
pumping the water of the river to a
height of from 15 to 20 feet upon mesa
lands for irrigation, converting an area
larger than Massachusetts—now a des-
ert—into a garden, where fruit will rip-
en in April, May and June, command-
ing the highest market prices.— San
Bob Vorus hates an alligator. The un-
canny appearance of the big ugly saurian
is sufficiently forbidding to most people
to make them despise him, but Bob has
a better reason than that—they destroy
his fish and pigs. He and his 10 boys
have been .occupying the dull summer
months in killing them. They bring in-
to town two and three every week for
the children to get frightened at.
Last Monday they brought up the big-
gest one yet. It measured feet in
length and weighed somewhat under 100
pounds. It was 47 years old by tho rings
on its tail and had already begun to store
away pine knots for the winter's supply.
His appetite seemed not to be confined
to geese and lightwood knots, for an au-
topsy discovered in his capacious cold
storage reservoir a pair of No. 11 bro-
gans and a pipe. That accounts for the
missing negro who went fishing there
about three weeks ago.—Lumpkin Inde-
A Burglar Alarm.
The other night people living near King
street were awakened by cries of "Help,"
"Thieves," "Burglars," etc., in a female
voice. The bold men hurried on their
clothes and rushed out into the night.
There on a tin roof stood the figure of a
woman clad in a light wrapper, and in
tremulous tones she declared that thero
were burglars downstairs. As she would
not venture down to unlock the door,
the men secured a ladder, and arming
themselves with clubs went up on the
roof and in through the window and
down the stairs. But the burglars did
not show up or even the slightest trace
Down in the cellar, however, they
found a lighted lamp which the lady had
left there herself in the early evening
and forgotten about. A grown daugh-
ter, who was the only other occupant of
the house, had looked out of her window
in the night, and, discovering a stream of
light out across the lawn, called her
mother, who took it to bo light from a
burglar's dark lantern, and so gave the
BigneM of th« Fair.
To visit the fair with profit or com-
fort you must leave your sense of duty
behind. Whoever goes there with intent
to thoroughly "do it" is laying up fof
himself anguish of mind and the com-
plete annihilation of his muscular and
nervous force. It is far too big for any
question of conscience to be allowed to
Its bigness is beyond description. No
words or pictures can tell the story of
its size. Experience alone can teach it.
You must go thero day after day, to re-
turn at night with tired eyes and aching
limbs, and with the bitter and ever in-
creasing knowledge that as an exhibi-
tion you can never grasp it. Where oth-
er exhibitions have been satisfied with a
display of 100 cubic feet of any special
article, Chicago must have at least an
acre. Of whatever the world has seen
before this time, it now sees larger spec-
imens and more of them. This means
for the visitor more steps, more fatigue,
more confusion, more time and morfl
Revealed In a Dream.
Two years ago John P. Elmborg of St.
Paul was injured while boarding a cabla
car. He sued the company for damages,
but lost his case owing to insufficient
witnesses. A few nights ago he dreamed
that he met a friend who told him that
the names of the witnesses of the acci-
dent would be found on the back of a
letter received two days before the acci-
dent occurred, together with the state-
ment that the casualty was the result of
the gripinan's carelessness. He also
dreamed that all the witnesses against
him would commit suicide. The follow-
ing morning Elmborg found the lettei
described, and on its back were the
names of 10 witnesses. Four of thesa
have committed suicide, and two mora
witnesses have died natural deaths.—

Tumping Out a I.ake For Ore.
Under what was once Lake Angeline,
near Ishpeming, Mich., are said to bd
the largest iron ore deposits ever discov-
ered in the northwest. To get at these
deposits all the water in the lake, which
covered 160 acres and was 70 feet deep
in places, has been pumped out. It toob
a pump delivering 20,000 gallons pet
minute from April until July, running
night and day, to empty the lake. Nov?
there is a bed of mud from 2 to 40 feet
deep, which it will take 16 months td
dig and pump out.—New York Tele1
