of color in Minneapolis? Investigation
ie\eals the fact that during the List 14
years there has been but one application
made by a Colored peison for a position
of this kind. Mr. Ankeny, postmaster
at Minneapolis, said. I have been
surprised that I have not seen a Col

like to have se\ eral Colored carriers on

my employees, it must be done through

Moxie Clay, a Colored woman living
at 3136 Wentworth avenue, attempted
Buicide last Saturday by cutting her
throat in an alley near Wabash and
Thirty-sixth street. She owed her
landlord a month's rent, and while on
her way to visit a friend, she saw an ex
pressman driving away with her funi
ture. Drawing a small penknife, she
climbed upon the express and attempted
to stab the driver, a Colored man
named Charles Saunders. She suc
ceeded in wounding him slightly in the
chin, and then ran into the alley and
cut her throat. She was taken to the
hospital in a dangerous condition.
She is about thirty years of age.
Miss Nina Eulweiss, an actress in the
"Town Lots" company, at the Windsor
theatre, has been greatly annoyed by a
pair of prying eyes which intrude upon
the privacy of the dressing room. Miss
Nina discovered the eyes watching her
through the crevice two or three nights
in succession, and she complained to
Harry Clayton the property man. Mon
day night as she entered the dressing
room as usual but behind her was
Clayton. The eyes were there waiting
for her and Mr. Clayton was waiting for
the eyes with a revolver. Clayton fired
and a yell of terror was the response.
But there was auother character in this
little drama yet to appear upon the
boards in the person of Officer Charley
Spencer, who hasa long arm and a stout
club. He was lying in wait in the alley
and neatly captured the peeping Tom as
he descended in haste from his perch.
The prisoner was the Colored janitor
Clinton McClarty. l&flkF i
