went out bo said to tbo Commissioner,
"You havo rondo a d d fool of yourself."
Do Abna in his conversation was not de

said, "harm a hair of his head." Ho Ahna

Do Abna took tho stand again aud bo

Kx-Congicssnian Howard A. Uonson of
California, who was in Now York tho othor

Commodoro Garrison's prowess. Ho says:
"Whllo In Chicago, on my way to this

I saw lilm onco lift a barrel of flour with a
man on top of It and throw them both off a

Tho man had uiado a remark that tho Com
modoro objected to, and, without saying a
word, tho Commodoro throw him over
board. Ho-wasn't called commodoro then
only captain and wherever Captain Gar
rison was ho 'ruled tho roost.' In tho early
days of 'CO ho was accredited with rosculng
a friend of his from twolvo border Mexi

tbo men's necks by Hinging them from him,
and fractuied another ouo's skull with a
blow of his fist.

to uiiikc inqulilcsas to tho best roids by
which to reach them, for, with tho excep
