Perhaps It win becauso ho begnn his

But, anyway, his appotlto was bad anil
his tompor orse when ho snt down to
breakfast in his homo on C street, near
Tho moro ho thought about tho break
fast tho Morso Sir. Flaherty's tompor
AVhon Sir. Flaherty is not drinking ho
is u ploasant Hort of a man, but drunk
ho is bad, very bad. Hu was drunk this
mottling, and ho criticised his wifo nnd
tho brcaltfust unsparingly, nnd Incident
ally ho throw 8omo of tlio smaller articles
of furniture at her.
Ills hand was unsteady, though, and
ho failed to icore. Jlrs. Flaherty ic
tortcd. too. nnd this still further angered
Mr. Flaherty, nnd ho graobed Mr.
Flaherty by tho throat nnd choked her.
Choked her until she got red in tlio faco
and her tongue hung out.
Utile Churliu Fluheiiy sw all this
nnd tried to protect his mother to tho best
of his ability, but Chnrllo Is only 10 yenw
old and his hither brushed him to onu
side and went on abusing Mrs. Flaherty.
Charllo pummelled nway nt his father
with his puny lists without hurting him
any and Mr. Flaherty continued to choko
his wifo until Charlie bvctmu deipciato.
"l'np, slop chocking ma, you'll kill
her." piped Charlie.
"I'm going to," growled Mr. Flaheity
thiottgh his clenched teeth.
Chiullc was scared,
Hewn1 afraid his mother would he
killed, and it really looked as If sho
would, lie was no match for his hurly
lather, and ho didn't know what to do
to help his mother.
Ho knew that tho lire-engine house
was Just mound tho corner, and Charllo
knew that If hu told tho 11 rumen what
was going ou they would help him make
his father stop abusing his mother.
Hut if he left nnd went over to tho
cuglne-honso his mother might bo killed
vrhllo he was gone.
Mr. Flaherty's raior was lying on tho
mntitlcpleco where ho left it yesterday
after shaving himself, and Chat lie
Charlie is a manly little boy aud It
made him mad to see his mother abused.
So he went and got tho ruor, took it out

to Charlie's repeated demands that ho

1 Then Charllo mado a lunge for his
I father and cut his throat w itli the raor.
The keen blade cut a long gash just
I under his father's ear, and If it had been
j a trlllo deeper his jugular vela would
I have bcon bovcrcd. It was not a very
I serious wound, hut it was enough to
-make Mr. Flaherty stop choking Char
lie's mother, and that was what Charlie
1'ollcoman Walsh readied tho liottso
just then and sent Mr. Flaherty to tho
doctor, who sewed up the gash in his
throat. He asked Charlie's father if he
would prosecute Charlie If ho was ar
rested for cutting him, nml Mt. Flaherty,
who isn't a bnd soitof a mnu when ho
isn't drinking, said ho wouldn't, and that
it was no use to nriest tho boy.
So Charlie wasn't nrtested, though ho
was badlv beared at what ho had done,
nnd Mr. Flaharty's throat was sowed up,
and Mrs. Flahntty Isn't much tho wotse,
save that her faco is badly bruised.

Tho rinkertons William A. and Itob
crt A. belter known as " 1)111" and
" Hob," camo to St. Paul yesterday and
nut up In parlors I and K, at tho Hotel
ltyan. It would bo hard to find two
brothers anywhere who think bettor of
each other than theso two sons of tho
great Allan 1'lnkcrton.
Theso two arc at tho head of tho
greatest privato dctectlvo agency In tho
world. Allan l'inkcrton started tlio
business in Chicago beforo tho war. 1)111
and Hob grow up w ith tho business and
tho business grew up with them. Few
pcoplo havo any idea how big a concern
Tlio Flnkortons employ 5.000 men.
Besides tho two head olliccn in Chicago
and New York, there uro agencies in
Boston, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Den
ver nnd St. Paul. They havo a force of
patrolmen in theso cities known as
"Plnkerlnn'ft Prnvcntlvo Watch." Thev
havo arsenals nt Chicago and New Yoric
with uniforms and Winchester rifles
enough to arm five regiments of men.
Plnkcrton dctoctlvcs nro oycrywherc.
Thoy nro employed in nearly every
largo morcautila liouso in Ametica, hi
hotels, in banks, following cltcuses and
watching suspected employes of rail
roads and other big corporations. Tho
business hasdouhlcd In tho last ten years
and promises to double again In tho noxt
decade. It is making rich men of Bill
and Bob. Their income, Is vat lously es
timated at from $150,000 to $1100,000 a
year. Either ono of tho brothers could
probably count moro than a half million
dollars' worth of this world's goods.
Tho secret of their success In business
is that it has been run on business prin
ciples. Tho I'inkettons do not ehaso
criminals in tho liopo of getting rownrds.
Thoy chnrgo their cllonts so much a day
for iho services of tin operator. Prices
vary, but s?S a day is about tho average.
The l'inkcrton detectives nro not known
to outsiders, and very often thoy do not
know each other except as two or more
aro nut tow oik on tho sntno case. Bill
nud Bob hire all the now mon themselves,
putting their knowledge of human na
turn and tho world to use lu making
Thoy havo plenty of applicants to
choose from. Healthy joung mon who
nro nutck-w Ittcd. well informed and ha o
largo bumps of sccretlvcness nnd valor
aio piefencd. Usually the new man
coestowotk as a watchman or in the
office until ho has shown wbut stuff he is
mado of Then ho Is put forward by
degrees. Tlio Finkcitoiis havo gray
haired detectives in their employ who
havo been there from boyhood. No man
who ever worked for tfiom and did his
dutv was allowed to go ttntowaidcd. and
when death takes oil a good roan tho
IMnkertons pension his widow and or
phans. Thcro aro probably few men in tho
world so w ell posted on what might bo
called thievology us "Bill" l'inkcrton.
Ho has mado it a lifo study.
Ha has in his libiary a photograph, de
scription and record of every profes
sional criminal of America and the most
important of thoso of Europe. Ho has
cultivated n wonderful memory for names
aud faces, nnd his brain is a storehouse
of kuowledgo on this subject. Hu keeps
a constant watch of tho movements of
professional criminals of nil kinds, and
when any big crime is committed in New
Zealand "or Delaware or anyw hero else,
ho can come pietty near guessing who
did it If It was tho work of a professional.

Animals get rid of thoir parasites by

quiet, seek dark.niry places, drink water,
and sometimes plttngo into it. When a
dog lias lost its appetite it cats that
species of grass known as dog's grass,
which acts as an emetic and a purgative,
Cats also eat grass. Sheep and cows,

tho anticipation of the early fall respect

expected to tako up tpiarters for tho win

seemed to be in good health and getting

CONDITION OV TUB BTAIIMIS.
Tho buildings now used for stables aio
of brick, with high roofs, well ventilated
and very light. Thoy were erected for
exhibition halls by tho Fair Association,
which owns tho grounds, but, as the
holding of fairs proved to be non-pro-dttctlvo
of financial results, savo on tho
wrong sldo of the ledger, tho association
joined hands witlt tho National Jockey
uitiD, ami lor some timo navu novoteu
the grounds exclusively to lacing, and
havo converted the halls' of mechanics,
fine arts, ctc.ninta. palatial cqulue hotels,
Tho centi.il portion of tho stable is occu
pied by uunicraiHrinrguiumwiniis, whim
around tlio stalls is a spaco sovetal feet
in width, in which, duilng bid weather,
tho horses may bo given walking exer
cise. At present theto is much talk, nnd ap
parently a strong probability, that n
number of tho membeis of the Jockey
Club will seccdu frpm tho consolidated
organization and sot up a rival track In
tho vicinity of Highland, just outside of
tho Disttlct of Columbia in Maryland.
For a long timo there have been bick

Bcsido thu trouble among tho factions,

Georgetown, and fcating that tlio inhibi

District ot Columbia, thought that they
saw their investment at Ivy City jeopard

view to oigantzing a new club and tho
location of a ttack outside of the Dis
trict, beyond tho danger of Congressional
interference. Thoy havo seemed the

The circumstances which havo Ird to

cannot but havo an itijuilous effect upon

that one or tho other must tu time go to

A Curious Incident Witlt u Weo Touch of
l'ullios In It.
From the it. l.outt HtpuMlc
Whon Mr, Cole, a w ell-known circus
proprietor in tho South, Hold his stock In
New Orleans, three dun ring horses that
ho had owned for years went with the
othcts by mistake, Mr. Colo at ouco
bought them baok, saying that ho would
novor consent to havo tho horses become
tho ptoperty of any one who would mako
tliein w ork, and ho had decided to put
them to a painless death. Ho iiropocd
bleeding them to death, butW. B. Leon
ard, a liveryman, suggoitod Unit tho uso
of chloroform would bo a better and less
painful modo. This was finally decided
upon, and a reliable man piocuml, who
was to havo porformed tho opointion.
Thuyweto all colleclod at tho circus
tent. Tlicio was Colo, Leonaid, tho
l idoi a and clowns, tho lingmnstur, tho
tumblets. tho leapcts and tho three pet
duns. Calling tho littlo mme by name,
ho told her to kiss them all good-bye.
llio Intelligent animal, stretching for
ward her held, kissed each one. Tills
was moro than they could stand, and the
sacrifice was put olf. Colo had no place
to tako them to, so Mr. Leonard ptomised
to find some ono who would assume
chargu of tlwm, under a gu.uantpo
never to work them, but to keop them lu
good order until death should claim
them for tho gtavc.
