sfcrty minutes on the line of totality, the
very morning the sun was eclipsed by the
moon. Several Mexican astronomers, sent
out by the Government, were there to make
observations, and the train waited for
them. Mr. Warfei sajs he has a distinct
recollection of seeing one eclipse back In
Jackson's administration; he thinks, but
that was only a side show- to the real
thing put up at the all fresco garden, two
weeks ago, In the land of peons and
Here is the way he described It: "When
the moon put the sun out of business. It
became black and dark, as suddenly as
snapping the shutter of a camera. That
darkness, too," I shall never forget It was
thick and unnatural, heavy, oppressive and
as sickening to observe as the black cap
which shuts out the world from the eves
of the doomed roan on the scaffold. The na
tives fell to their knees In terror and
shrank In superstitious dread. Suddenly a
Mood-red spot appeared on the edge of the
cryona. It brightened every second and
finally burst through the pall of darkness
nnd gloom. In this case, the curtain went
tip and the show was over."
Mr. Warftld has a magic lantern with the
genuine Mexican slides and is open for en

INSANITY FROM NOT SMOKING.
Strange Case of Albert Turner, a.
There have been many Btorles published
of cases of Insanity resulting from cigar
ette smoking, but the City Hospital con
tains the only case on record of insanity
resulting from not smoking cigarettes. Al
bert Turner, a negro, IS jears old,
living at No. 322 Targee street, was brought
to the hospital b his mother nt a late
hour Siturday evening. She tlal-ns. that
his lnsanltj is the direct result of his
stopping the habit of cigarette smoking.
Tlje storj- she tells Is an interesting one.
as u Is exactlj opioslte. to the generally
accepted ideas on ,the object. It seems
that her son Is a teamster and receives a
tnlarj' of $8 a week, which easily puts him
In the upper ten of the social circles In
which he moves.
His record for being one of the high so
cial lights of the neighborhood leads him
often to flights of extravagance on paj
dajs. and one of his heaviest expenses
heretofore has been cigarettes, of which
he consumed about fifty to seventj-Ilve
daily. So far as could be seen this had
no detrimental effects on Albert's health,
but the expense of cigarettes, smoked In
such profusion, made it difficult for the
famllj, living in the stjle to which the
Turners were accustomed, to make both
ends meet. In consequence, the mother-persuaded
Albert to stop the habit. He final
ly consented, nnd swore off for good. From
that time she dates his mental troubles,
and the fact which worried her mo-t was
that the resumption of the h-iMt did not
bring back his former mentsl condition.
Albert is now under treatment at the hos
pital, where his condition Is not regarded
as very serious.

cartridge, -lx Inches long and two and one

returned to St. Ixmls last night at 7 o'clock.
The party came In over the Vandalla line,

who arrived at the station at 10 o'clock to

the fight for the Fair in Washington were
disappointed. The members, worn out with

also promised to Invite the civilized nations

TAKEN WITHIN SIX
MILES OF MANILA,
General Pio del Tilar Surrounded
in a House by Native
IS POSITIVELY IDENTIFIED.
Another American Force Am
bushed and Two Killed, Nine
Wounded and One
Manila, June 9. General Pio del Pilar, th
most aggressive and most persistent of the
Filipino leaders, -who was captured last
night, as previously cabled to the Asso
ciated Press, was) made a prisoner at Guad
aloupe. six miles east of Manila, by some of
the Manila native police.
Upon information, received that Pio del
Pilar was to be at a certain house. Captain
Lara and twelve policemen proceeded In a
launch to Guadaloupe, where, aided by a.
detachment of the Twenty-first Infantrj.
they surrounded the house, captured the
General and brought him to Manila this
morning, where he was positively Identi
fied before the Provost Marshal.
A detachment of the Fcrty-flfth Infantry,
scouting near Daet, Province of Camarlnes
del Norte, were ambushed on May 23, ap
Captain Albert Stelnhauser was wounded
three times, two privates were killed, eight
wounded and one private missing.
The insurgent loss is reported to be heavy.
Washington. June 9. Genera; MacAr
thur has cabled the following report o?
the" capture of General Pilar:
"Manila, June 9. 1900. Native police cap
tured Insurgent General Pio del Pilar .this
morning; he was found lurking In ths
neighborhood of San Pedro Macati."
General Schwan's estimate of the Im
portance of this news is contained In this
"The capture of General Pio del Pilar,
cabled by General MacArthur this inorn
Irg, U a' most Important one. Pilar was
regarded as one of the most active and t.n
compromtslng of the rebel chieftains. After
the disruption of the insurgent govern
ment and the dispersion of nearly all the
Insurgent organizations north of Manila.
Pilar managed to concentrate a considera
ble force at St- Miguel de Maumo, in the
Province of Bulacan, and, although he was
unable to hold the place for any great
length of time, he succeeded In withdraw
ing his troops to the mountains and In
eluding the several columns that were sent
out to destroy him. It was difficult to keep
track of his movement", and he frequent
ly was reported as being at a number ot
places at the same time. That his cap
ture has been effected by the native po
lice or Manila, a body numbering some
MO, evidences afresh the loyalty of these
men to the American cause, so often Im
pugned both by Americans and Filipinos." -
