But thi oldest of Uit family, Hiram,

ing ono day on tlio shorei of Mud crock
near liii parents' homo nt Siu'itnnuli, in
Btoubcu county, western Now York, ho
wns lddnnned by a woman, who after-
vnrd Btole clothes mid shoes for him mid
enrried him to Wisconsin, where she
raised him, lending him to bcliovo she
wns his mother, mid telling lihn that his
father died when ho was n baby When
tlie boy grew to manhood ho married
Tlio woman attempted to poison his
family and fled.
The boy's family, his parents and
brothers, gave Him tip for lost after lie
disnppcnicd. thinking ho had been
drowned In Mud creek, wheio he was
last seen. Recently, tluongh the work
of 'a man named Lockery, who was
the paramour of the abductress, tlio
relatives hero weie pheed in com

given the ilium: of Gage, nnd this cor
respondence culminated the other day in

to tho world, ho has been fully identi

The woman who nbdncted him fled
with Lockery to Hudson, .Wis., then to
Catfish Bay, where thoy lived for several
yeais, and finally to Richmond, where
thoy remained on. a farm until about fif
teen years ago. About the time of Hi
ram's marriage tho woman disappeared,
vowinjr she would never be heard of
- again, but it lias since been ascertained
that she was sentenced to prison for life
for tho murder of her daughter. Hiram
for a long timo surmised fi ora Lockery's
notions that he was not the woman's
6on, and when nt last ho got upon tho
trail of the facts Lockery told him plain
ly that she was not his mother. Cor.
A Needless Contilvancn.
Some one has im cnted n patent kind
of an arrangement to prevent pocket
picking. Tho pocket cant bo placed in
tho ordinary way, in any side or back
Beam, unlocks at the waist somehow by
a little arrangement concealed beneath
the dress, and cannot bo tampered with
in anyway. All of which is wonderful, no
doubt, nnd may be extremely ptactic.il
if some one will follow it up with nn in
vention enabling a woman to find her
pockot nnd get into it herself, a lady ex
claimed recently, as the seamstress
ripped up an old gown which Bho had
worn two years, at seeing a pocket
cunningly hidden away whero no one
would ever dream of looking for it.
The only way a woman can find her
pocket now is by taking off the dress,
hanging it in a strong light, praying for
patience when she begins tlio search and
taking the day for it. Such a modus op
erandi is haidly convenient in a street
car or at the theatio, so she half rises
and tumbles hfr draperies over in a fran
tic sort of way. her face becoming cnin
eon with embairassment as her efforts
prove unavailing, and atrlast sho accepts
gratefully tho handkerchief proffered by
somo sympalhulio observer, nnd gives up
the search. Now, some kind of electric
contrivance that would set a messenger
call bell whizzing in a pocket, nnd keep
it sounding until the lady discovered its
whereabouts, would be useful indeed,
but tho bafety clasp to prevent tho
pocket f lom being picked is almost as
necessary ns locking up naughty pictures
from blind boys. No one could find the
pocket to pick, not even tho woman her
self. New York Sun.

Capture of u 400-Pouml Sliilrk.
A Quonochoutaug maid who bagged a
shark weighing 200 pounds has been
eclipsed by a couple of South Stain foul
boys, not in tho amount of pluck dis
played, but in the size of the booty Tho
Bbark the SouTh Stamford boys captured
weighed 400 pounds, and this is the way
they caught the big fellow: It was Sat
urday at Ware Island, near Pine Island,
and the boys were out with a boat and
seiu'e. Suddenly, well up in the coarse
sedge ,of the island, they saw a monster
fish of some sort They didn't try the
seine business on him that was useless
But they so managed with boat and
bushes that the big jish seemed afraid to
try to reark deeper water, and tho fulling
tide finally left him aground Then the
boj s out with jackknives and wentat the
fish in leguhir harpoon style, and soon
bud him in such shape that he wouldn't
lack They towed their prize to the old
steamboat dock at Waterside.
The fish is said to bo of that variety of
shark known as "slasher." It is just
thirteen feet long. Hartford Courant

Win. Own tho Illrd?
A novel suit is pending before Justice
McMahon, at Parkville, L. L The liti
gants are James McCaughn and James
Qonnley, who are nest door neighbors at
Pnrkvillo. McCaughn is the owner of
fancy fowl, wliich ho values at from $20
to $25 each Qonnley also keeps chick
ens, but not of so high a breed. When
McCaughn saw among a brood of young
chickens in Gonnley's yard a chicken of
the species of his own fancy fowl he
claimed it, and alleged that ono of Iuh
fancy hens must have flown over Into
Qonnley's yard, and laid nn egg in the
henhouse there. Gormloy refused to sur
render the chicken, saying that if
McCaughn's hen had laid the egg a hen
belonging toGonnley was practically the
mother of th? chicken, she having
hatched the egg. Both men have en
gaged Now York lawyers to look after
tbeir interests in the suit, nnd Justice
McMuhon is looking up the iuw on the
subject, as it is tho first suit of the kind on
record, it is said. Philadelphia Ledger.

Two rimvers from Ouu I'luut.
A few days since a lady fiom Win
chester assured a friend in tins city that
in a garden of that town were to be seen
plants of the common foxglove wliich
beside the flowers of the ordinary sort,
bore well developed Japan lilies on tho
same spikes with the other flowers. Tho
explanation is furnished by u similar
freak in a Salem garden
A gentleman much interested In horti
cultuie lecently brought to our notice a
spike of foxglove from his garden, the
low er portion of the spike bemg covered
with the flowers oi the usual form, but
at the summit it boro a flower closelj' re
senibling a Illy, yet of the same texture
and marking as the other ilowera A
closo examination showed it to bo a cu
rious abnormal stato of the plant, and
five separate foxglove flowers could he
counted mixed into the bell shaped flow
er upright at the summit of the stem,
having precisely tho form of a lily
Thoso freaks In garden flowers aro inter
esting, although not rare to those who
watch for them. Salem Gazette.
