Ha Fall in a Well.—H Convict Escapes
Bbeniiam, Texas, March 18.—At
PhiHipsbnrg, eight miles south of
here, yesterday, Cbas. Meyer was
working in a fifty-sixty toot deep
well. He gave (he order to be drawn
out, and when within ten teet of the
top the knot slipped or the rope
broke, letting Meyer fall to the bot-
tom. His assistants thought him
dead and one went down after him,
but it was found though stunned and
badly bruised on thd shoulders and
body, sprained ankles and rlsts, he
was not otherwise hurt.
News reached here of the esc ipe of
a convict from a guard working a few
miles south of here on the Santa Fe
Wednesday. The convincts were
strung out along an embankment
shoveling dirt. One of them, when
none of the guards were looking,
lay down In a hollow made by the
spade. The balance of the gaug near
him threw dirt over him until he war
completely covered. When camp was

A Meteor Fell.
Denison, Tex. March 18.—Mr.
Frauk Newall, a cattleman of Engle
county, Choctaw Nation,, who was in
the city to-day, reports that a large
moteor fell on the prairie last Sunuay.
It was e.nbeded at least twenty feet
in the earth and protrudes twelve
teet In the air. The meteor when
seen by Newall, appeared in the air
like a monster ball of fire. When tho
earth was struck it fairly trembiod,
and there was a sputtering and ziz-
zling uoise like unto a red hot piece
of iron dipped into cold water. Tho
meteoric stone was as hot as a furnace
for several hours after it decendcd to
the earth. Newall estimates the
weight at several tons. The meteor
tell about 8 o’clock on the prairie
near a small water course called Frick
creek. Newall was on horseback
about 600 yards distant. Newall’s
horse trembled w ith terror causing
him to dismount. It was not until
tbe following morning that Newall
and his neighbors could approach
near the meteor, aud then at a dis-
tance of abcut fifty yards.
To Phinas H. George of Brumley,ino.
Dear Son—With aching heart and
troubled mind, I endeavor to compose
myself enough to write to you, hop-
ing you may chance to see this and
write us if you are still living, but oh!
we fear you are not; for it has been
nearly two months since you left, and
we have heard from you but once,
and that only a few days after you
left. Wo are almost distracted, for we
know not why we have not heard
from you if you are living. Ob! Phi-
nas; our dear boy, it you only knew
what we have suffered, you would
surely relieve us of this heart-rending
anxiety and suspense, for it seems
like we are writing to the dead. It
almost breaks onr hearts to look at
your vacant place at the table and
your empty bed, Dear child, I can
hardly write for my blinding tears. It
we could only hear you are alive aud
well, it wonld be joylul qews, indeed.
We go to the postofflce daily, but
have to turn away sad end disap-
pointed. If you Bhould get sick, or
anything happen, you lot us know,
and we will como to you. <>h! how
sad to think our dear Phinas, who
has always been so industrious and
good at home, may have lain and suf-
fered among strangtSs, with no fond
parents'nor loving hands to adminis-
ter to his wants; perhaps delirious
could never tell your name. I helped
nurse a strange young mau in that
cjndition once myself. How often
we have stood over you day after day
and night after night and teudeiiy
uursed you bac^fo health agak when
it seemed death had claimed you for
its owu, and we know.if you had been
among strangers you would have
died. We are ycry anxious to see
your dear lace again, but if you wish
to try tbe world for yoursell we are

I met him on the Etevated the other
day and ho seemed depressed and out
“What’s the matter?” asked L
He flushed in a conscious way, and
3aid, “Oh, nothing." Then in the
next breath he added: “Yes there is,
boo, and I’m going to confide in you.
You impress me as the sort of woman
a man could confide in.”
I have always flattered myself that
there is something in my face that
inspires confidence. I was pleased to
see that this expression was gener-
“I’m in love,” he continued, “des-
perately in love, and I feel sure it is
a hopeless case. I don’t mind men-
tioning her name to you. Indeed,
any man might feel proud of himself
to think ho was in love with her.
It’s Miss Z. That’s why it’s so hope-
less. You know what Miss Z.’s posi-
tion is. So do L I know she is a
clever, capable, competent business
woman. She fights her own battles
with the world, and asks no odds of
anybody. She is highly respected
by her employers, who recognize her
true worth and her value to them.
She needs no help, no protection
from any one. I don’t daro to pro-
pose to her on this account Why,
she’d just laugh at me for my pains.
She would want to know of what
earthly use I could be to her.
“I came pretty near doing it once,
i saw her at the opera one night and
she looked so girlish and dependent
in her white frock, with her hair
curled in childish ringB about her
faoo, that I made up my mind she
did need a protector and that I would
propose next day.
“Well, the next day came, and I
happoned to meet her in the morning
on her way down town.- It was rain-
ing. She had on a very mannish,
double breasted, long caped mackin-
tosh, a pair of stout boots, a storm
hat and a very aggressive umbrella
tucked under her arm. There were
no babyish curls that day. Her hair
was braided tightly all about her
head, and looked as businesslike as
possible. My courage failed me. I
said to myself that it was all non-
sense. That trim, alert, capable
young iwrson didn’t need me or any
other man to look after her. And so
I didn’t propose. That’s all,” he
wound up gloomily.
It happened that the very next
afternoon Miss Z. dropped in for a
little chat and a cup of tea. I told
her the story because it was too good
to keep. She laughed a bit, and then
“Yes," she said, “I dare say I give
people that impression. I intend to,
at least. I resolved when I first went
out in the world to scramble foj my-
self that I would never ask any in-
dulgence from any one on account of
my box. I would put on a brave
front anyway. Like Rosalind, I’d
haven martini outside, though in my
hoart the woman’s fear did lie hidden.
Well, your story shows that I have
succeeded. And yet I am a woman
still at heart.
“I don’t liko to do things for my-
self. I’d rather be waited upon,
cared for, watched over by some
groat, big, delightful man. I often
look at other women with their hus-
bands and sweethearts, and sigh to
remember I have none. You would
not have believed it? No, I dare say
not And probably poor young X.
would not believe it now. But it is
true; true of me and of every wom-
an. No matter how bravo and capa-
ble we may seem, we are all cowards

Professor William James, a well
known Harvard instructor, in speak-
ing of tho trance condition and
trances in general, says: “I know a
woman who in her trances knows
facts which altogether transcend her
possible normal consciousness—facts
about the lives of people whom she
never saw or hoard of before. I
■mi>n this statement deliberately,
knowing the liabilities to which it
exposes me. My own impressions
are that the trance condition is an
immensely oomplex and fluctuating
thing, into the understanding at
which we have hardly begun to pen-
etrate, and concerning which any
very sweeping generalizations are
sure to bo premature."—St Louis
