. HIS SKIN AN ARMOB.
Marvelous Cnso of a Berlin Man Who
In Berlin a Sinhalese bain-s all investi
gation yb physicians by the impenetrability
of bis skin. The bronzed Easterner, a
Hercnles, in shape, claims to have found
on elixir which will render the human
skin Impervious to any metal point or
sharpened edge of a- knife or dagger, and
calls himself the "man with the Iron skin."
It Is true that It has been Impossible to
even scratch bis skin with sharply-pointed
nails, with finely-ground knifes and dag
gers. He Is now- exhibiting- himself, and
his greatest feat Is to-pass with his entire
body through a hoop, the Inside or wnich
is hardly big enough to admit Ins body and
is closely set with sharp knife points-, dag
gers, nails and other equally pleasant trifles.
Through this hoop be squeezes his body
with absolute- Impunity. The physicians
do not agree as to his Immunity, and some
of them think that Rtiarmln, which is his
name. Is a-fakir who bos by-long practice
succeeded in hardening hlmseir against the
Imm-essinnn of tnetnl noon- his skin- The
professors of the Berlin clinic, however; con
sidered it worth- while-to lecture about the
man's .skin, pronouncing It an Inexplicable

Adventnro of Mr. Peters, Since Mur
dered By Mongo Savngp-.
Folk who know Uttle or nothing of the
true condition of the Upper Congo are
apt to doubt the existence of cannibal
ism. The following incident took place
In the Jurisdiction of Major Lothalra's
old station of Basankusu, and wUI tend to
dispel such delusions.
Mr. Peters of the Free State, since mur
dered in cold blood by the Mongo savages,
was canoeing up the Loporl to oppose
the Western Arab incursion, which slowly
nut surely was creeping down tho head
waters of that river and of the Bolum-
The price of slaves bad been so depre
ciated by the Arab Influence, that two boys
wero sold for the price of a goat, and a
man for the price of a dog. Arab-hunted
folk were seeking refuge In villages further
removed from their devastating raids, and
natives, taking advantage of the fears and
distress of the refugees, had been tying them
up as slaves.
On reaching the mouth of the Bolambo.
Mr. Peters made a discovery of brutal
deeds,. In.the night, when his boats were
moored. Mr. Peters and- his men heard
the songs from some approaching canoes,
slave laden, bringing home their spoil.
Pnttln? out Into the river stealthllyand get
ting quite near the traders, he completely
surprised the canoers.
Six prisoners were taken, others, prang
inginto the river, wereshot. On taklngpos
sesslon of the candes, Mr. Peters found in
each human flesh lnabundance.thecooklng
pots full ot legs, arms, hands, boiled and
boiling, other pieces roasted and dry. As
figure-head, one ot the doomed craft bore,
hoisted on a stick, the Jawbones of one
of the many killed.

Tho recent attack made by the roads upon

"The stoppage by trains of street traffla

"The Commissioners recommend the en

companies to change their track crossings
from grade levels in Washington, within
two and a half years and in the county
within five years, upon plans subject to the
approval of the Commissioners."
But the last Congress tolled to do any
thing at all about the matter. Since the
lost Commissioners' report the situation has
grown worse, rather than better. Two
rapid transit street car lines crossing steam
road tracks have gone into operation, the
city has grown in population and trafiic
and the evidence of the Increased dangers
has appeared in numerous accident;, ecrae
of them fatal.
The seriousness ot the situation has Iieea
kept before the public by toe citizen' asso
ciations, by The Times and liy other agen
cies. The Commissioners hove recognized
the added dangers by making a iollce or
der requiring the roads to stop tlit'ir trains
at crossings and to observe other rules, ror
the safety of passers on the Street. These
rules the managers of the roads claim are
almost prohibitive ot trarflc Tie Com
missioners have answered this already in
their reirart of last year, quoted above.
AN EXPENSIVE RELIEF.
In spite of all precautions, they say acci
dents continue to occur that vould be im
possible if crossings were mailtr almve or
below grade. It Is coming to be n cognized
that like the placing underground of dec trio
wires, this k for the time an expensive
but the only sure and reasonable relief to
the dangerous conditions. The Commis
sioners believe it is the only one th e people
will ever accept as satisfactory. Ther

The Senate to Decide tho Fate o
The cases"of almost 400 Presidential post
masters will be presented to the Senate ror
its action next month. So far there have
been 240 recess appointments and all of
these will bo sent to the Senate for con
firmation. The terms of 130 postmasters expire
during the month, and there are also e gbt
other vacancies caused by deaths of post
masters whose successors will have to be
chosen. The principal offices where post
mastership terms expire during Decem
ber are Portland, Maine, on December
10, and Hartford, Conn., and East Provi
dence, R. I., on December 17. Another big
office, which soon will be thlcd, is Al
toona. Pa. In none ot these offices has any
spirited contest so far developed, ami few
papers are on file at the Post-office De
partment in the cases.
Hartford is Senator Ha wlcy'shomeand he
doubtless will namo the Incumbent. At
East Providence the appointee probably
will be Senator Aldrlch's candidate, while
the Portland office may be filled by some
of whum is a resident of that city.
Post-office Department officials point
out a remarkable Increase In the mi rt-illty
among postmasters, disproportionate to
the increase In the list. During tie- past
year there were approximately hlrty
five among those of the Presidential class.
This Is said to be larger than for any year
