Cousin of Ambassador Choate
Comes to a Sad End.
Valparaiso, Ind.. Oct. 12. Alone and
friendless. In poverty and a cheerless, un
clean old house, Sophia Chalt died in this
city. A few feet from tho tumbled-down
bedstead In warping trunks lay decaying
cowns and garments of rich and costly ma

Upon sagging book-shelves stood rotting
volumes of classic literature, now well
nigh priceless becauo of their antiquity.
Yet the entire financial itcre of tho lonely
old woman amounted to a cents In cash.
Sophia Choate was an old and well
known resident of this city. Of distin
guished lineage, tho nan a cousin of Hon
orablo Joseph II. Choate, present Ambassa

Neighbors were not welcomed within tho

She was seldom seen and had absolutely no
friends. How ehe lived la a mystery.
The house, for want of repairs, has been
decaying. It Is mlEcrably furnished. A

Sophomores Turn a Trick on a Rut
New Tork, Oct. 12. D. F. Sniveler, a
freshman at Rutgers College, New Bruns
wick, N. J., while on his way to visit a
girl who he admires last night, was eelied
by a number of sophomores and taken to a
rear building, where they stripped him of
his evening clothes.
Then they secured a suit of clothing worn
by stage tramps and In this they attired the
shivering freshman. His hands and feet
were tied, excelsior whiskers were stuck
upon his face and he was thrust into a big
box packed with excelsior and nailed up.
His tormentors carried htm to the stoop
of the young lady's residence on Somerset
street, and. depositing the box at the door,
rang the bell and departed.
Young Sniveler recognized the haters, but
says he bears them no malice, and will not
complain against them.

HOW AUCTIONS ABE PROTECTED:
The auctioneer may say there arc no "by-bidders"
present, but there are other va3's of preventing even
the highest bidder from securing a bargain. If the
bid is not high enough the auctioneer may echo an
imaginary bid which no one else hears. He ostensi
bly sells the article, but the clerk FAILS TO FIND
THE SUPFOSED BIDDER, AND THE ARTICLE
GOES BACK INTO STOCK.
Is to state that some one, not present, has authorized
the auctioneer to start the bidding on an article, say,
at $20.00. If the auctioneer starts the bidding at
$20.00 the auction will suffer no loss. IF THE PRICE
IS RUN UP IT IS SOLD; IE NOT, THE ARTI
CLE IS WITHDRAWN.
The jewelry auctioneer has another way of protecting
the auction against loss. He offers to keep goods for
the highest bidder for 24 hours without any deposit.
An article is then ostensibly sold to a bidder who pre
sumably takes advantage of this offer, and is not re
quired to come forward to claim his purchase. PER
HAPS THE SALE SO -MADE IS GENUINE
PERHAPS IT IS NOT THERE IS NO WAY
THE SAFE WAY:
The buyer can protect himself absolutely by purchas
ing Diamonds, Watches, Silverwares and Fine Art
Wares from the old established, reliable and excep
tionally low-priced house of Mermod & Jaccard's.

BROOM CORN MAY ADVANCE.
Establishment of Independent
Broom Factories Almost Certain.
Greenup. 111.. Oct. 12. If tho broom corn
barons do not cobble up this year's crop
pretty quickly, there Is going to bo a lively
Increase In the number of Independent
broom factories through this secUon. The
local broom corn market has slumped off In
Ihe last week from JS0 to J70. and there are
virtually no buyers in the Held.
It Is alleged that brokers have caused this
condition. iaUsfylng tho temporary wants
of manufacturers so as to get them out of
the field, obliterate competition aaJ active
buying, and thus bear the market. If this
is true tho price must of necessity go up
again. If. on the other hand, the manu
facturers are well stocked with corn. It Is
certain that what they have has cost them
from S3 to $300. phlch leaves a handsome
margin to ihe small factory that has no
old corn on hand, and can secure all It
wants at a very low figure.
One factory has been started in this city,
and a movement is on foot to establish a
large concern, backed by ronie of the
wealthiest farmem. among whom are os
Itepresentatlvo Ed B. Stewart. The pro
moters estimate that with the rrop they
have In view, and at the present high price
of finished brooms, tbey can realize a
profit on their corn and clear the value of
the plant In one year. The plants are to
be owned exclusively by local capitalists,
and will be kept up to encourage and pro
tect the growers here from being Imposed
on by speculators.
