During the past few years wo have
known of people In surrounding towns
assembling wherever a night-blooming
cereus was about to unfold its
petals and in a few hours develop
itself into a massive bell shaped flow
er, most glorious to behold. In a very
short space of time the beauty and
fragrance of the flower Is carried away
by the surrounding atmosphere, nnd
the spectators depart with a regret
ful feeling that the short-lived crea
tion cannot remain longer among its
sister plants. On Tuesday evening a
party assembled at the home of E. E.
Snyder to await the opening of a bud,
which began to unfold at 7.30 o'clock.
13y 9 o'clock the flower was fully de-
eloped, and shortly after cut away
and preserved In an alkallme liquid.

species owned by Dr. G. B. Seamen

HE COULDN'T STAND IT.
The Good Ilishop Wns frightened nt
the Speed Ho Wns Traveling.
From the Chicago Record.
Speed was once demonstrated on a
western road in a fashion to curl the
hair of at least one old Mormon bishop.
The church man considered it a phe
nomenon, and got off the train as
quickly as ho could. Ho had bull
whacked across the plains In the early
days, and strange to say, had never
ridden on a railroad train until the
time when he entered upon his trip
from Green river to San Francisco.
The speed was, therefore, a revelation
to him. He had never before seen any
thing so swift, and he was scared.
About twelve miles from Ogden he
asked the conductor for the time of
day, and was told It was 7:33. He Im
pressed this time forcibly on his mind.
Now, for a wonder, the western con
nection at Ogden was quickly made,
and after the lapse of but a few min
utes the Sun Franclsco-bound travel
ers were on their way California ward.
Ogden had been left behind only a
few miles, and the train was whoop,
lng along at a behind-time rate of
speed, when the old bishop, frightened
and trembling, dared to ask the con
ductor what was the time of day.
If you have traveled westward you
know that at Ogden the time changes,
und Snn Francisco time, one hour earli
er, Is adopted. The conductor had San
Francisco time and he said:
"It is 7:10 ten minutes nfter 7."
The old bishop, previously haunted
by a dread of impendlnjr destruction
because of the horrible rate of speed
at which he was being whirled through
space, rose with a wild cry and made
for the door.
"Lemmo off!" ho cried. "It was thir-ty-flvo
minutes after 7 nn hour ago,
an' we're goln so fast we are goln'
faster than time can count Itself. Lem
Had he really been going as fast as
the old man had believed he would
surely have been beaten to bits as he
Jumped from the trnin. As It was, he
was only rolled something like a half,
mile nnd was carried back to Ogden
on a hand car.

THE AFFAIR OF WILBUR PAWCETT
An Old Hotel Clerk's Story ol tlio
Mysterious Veiled Womnn Who Se

l'ut-in-Uay Hotel Until Whisky
Gnva Her Away-Tlio Escape to
Cnntuln nnd Subsequent Arrest on
Suspicion nt nn Ico Cnnilvnl.
"I can tell you a little Incident that
happened on the historic Island of Putin-Bay,
in Lake Erie, some years ago,
and as the narrative leads up to a sen
sational and tragic cllrr.x and har. never
appeared in print it would perhaps
mako Interesting reading," remarked
John J. Rice, a traveling man for a
New York house, recently, to a Wash
ington Post reporter. "It occurred at
the time the old Put-In -Bay House was
In the zenith of Its glory. It was In
August at the height of the season, and
the hotel was crowded to Its fullest
capacity with pleasure-seekers. One
day one of the clerks was taken sud
denly ill, nnd as the entire office force
was rushed with business the loss of
the services of a clerk Just at that time
wns quite a serious matter.
"I had had some experience behind
the desks of hotels In the east, a fact
which was known to the hotel people
at Put-in-Bay,nnd the second day after
the clerk was taken 111 I was appealed
to by the head clerk to take the sick
man's place until he recovered suffic
iently to resume his labors. As I was
away on a vacation I rather disliked to
go to work, but the Inducements offered
mo were first-class, and I finally con
sented. I wns to go on duty at noon
and remain until midnight.
A VEILED LADY.
"The second day I was behind the
desk a rather tall lady, of aristocratic
bearing, and heavily veiled, arrived at
the house, entered one of the reception
rooms, gave a bell boy her card with
instructions to take it to the clerk, ask
him to register her name and assign
her a pleasant room in a quiet portion
of the house. On the card was the
name 'Clara It. Opydyke' In print, and
below was written in pencil in a small,
cramped hand, 'Baltimore, Md.' I reg
istered the lady and sent a boy to show
her to her room, to which her baggage,
a medium-sized sole-leather trunk, was
soon sent. The lady Informed me, by
the bell boy, that she desired to have
her meals sorved In her room. I had
no Idea then that she meant she did not
Intend to go down to the dining room
at all during her stay. I supposed she
was tired and intended to have only
one or two meals served In her room.
She also asked the boy to bring her a
note from the clerk advising her as to
the rates for board by the day and also
by the week. I wrote the rates on a
card nnd sent it to her. She sent the
boy back with a $20 Bill, telling him to
Inform me that she would perhaps re
main a week, but If she did not the
house could take its pay out of the $20
and give her the remainder when she
"After she had been there three days
without going to the dining room, hav
ing all her meals carried to her, I
sent her a note Informing her that we
would have to charge her a dollar a day
extra for meals sent to her room. She
made no reply to the note.
DRINKS GAVE HER AWAY.
"That evening when "the head bar
keeper turned over his receipts to the
hotel office he had. as usual, several
slips of paper on which certain guests,
designated by their room numbers,
were charged with drinks, and one of
these slips bore the number of the
room occupied by Clara R. Opdyke,
her room being charged with two
drinks of whisky, a brandy smash, and
two cocktails. I asked the barkeeper
If he wasn't mistaken about the num
ber of the room, but he said he was not,
and while we were talking over the
matter another order was brought by
a bellboy for a whisky punch to be de
livered at that room.
"I was beginning to get suspicious,
nnd I made up my mind that I would
find out whether the woman was drink
ing the liquor or was entertaining a
thirsty gentleman In her room. I told
the bellboy I would deliver the liquor
myself. The barkeeper mixed the
drink and I took it upstairs, knocked
at the door of the woman's room, and
was told to come in.' I opened the
door and saw the woman sitting at a
tablo with her back toward me. She
did not turn her face, but simply said:
'Put the liquor on the stand.' I placed
tho glaps on a small stand, and then
" 'I beg your pardon, but It is In vio
lation of the rules of the house to
serve whisky to ladies. Of course, we
have very few calls for It from ladies,'
nnd I laid special emphasis upon tho
last word. 'An exception has inadvert
ently been made, however, In your
SPRANG TO HER FEET.
"Before I could finish the sentence
the woman sprang to her feet and
grasped me firmly by both arms, nnd,
trembling violently, fairly hissed In
my face: "Don't dare to cry out. I
am desperate, and If you betray me I
will kill you! I am not a woman; 1
am a man.'
"I must confess that I realized from
tho instant I felt the grasp upon my
arms that the person who held me so
firmly was not a woman. Tho grip
was like that of a vise, and It would
have been folly for mo to have tried
to release myself. 'I will not betray
you,' I said. .'Loose your hold on me;
you are hurting my arms.' The man
let go of me, and as ho did so I moved
toward the bell button. He anticipat
ed me, however, and, taking a step
toward me, and with fire fairly flash
ing from his eyes, ciled: 'Don't touch
that bell!' There was something In
his voice that convinced me that If I
wanted to remain on earth I better
let that bell a'one. As I turned
squarely toward him, I noticed that he
held a revolver In his hand, half con
cealed by the folds of his dress.
" 'I don't want to commit another
murder,' said he, 'but I shull have to
It you contlnuo to show a disposition
to give an alarm, and thus Intention
ally Jeopardized my personal safety.'
COMPOUNDING A FELONY.
"I had been away from the hotel of
fice about fifteen minutes, and I was
afraid that I might be wanted thero,"
continued Mr. Rice, "so I explained
the matter to tho man, and after ex
acting from mo a solemn obligation to
reveal nothing that I had seen or hoard
In the room, I left him to go back to
the office, promising to return to his
room when I got off duty at midnight.
I wasn't afraid of the man. His whole
bearing, despite his disguise, betoken
ed tho man of polish and refinement,
and Judged by his conversation, ho
was a person of good education. I
was convinced that he was neither
crazy nor drunk, nnd there was some
thing about him which not only excit
ed my curiosity, but gave me confi
dence that he really meant no harm If
I kept my own counsel about him. The
mystery) surrounding him Interested
me, and I decided to learn more about
"At midnight I returned to his room.
He was waiting for me and welcomed
me In an exceedingly pleasant and gen
ial manner, although I could not help
noticing that he was very nervous and
III at ease. After we had exchanged a
few remarks he reluctantly confided to
mo his secrat, which was, In short,
that he had killed a German army of
ficer In a duel In which he claimed that
the requirements of the code had not
been scrupulously compiled with, and
that the affair, for that reason, had
assumed the character of a mnrder.
"I had noticed that he had copies of
all the dally papers received at the
inland sent to his room Immediately
after the various steamboats arrived.
Ho picked up one of these papers, and,
pointing to an Item, told me to read it,
which I did. The item was a cable
dispatch from Berlin to tho effect that
the German authorities had been ad
vised that Wilbur Fawcett, who had
killed a German army oillcer, had es
caped to tho United States.
" 'I am Wilbur Fawcett,' said tho
man, 'and have been hunted by de
tectives ever since the occurrence of
this miserable affair referred to in this
newspaper. I feel positive that I nar
rowly escaped arrest upon landing In
the United States and it seems to me
as If my footsteps have been dogged
from New York to Washington, thonce
to Pittsburg, Cleveland nnd Cincinnati,
where I firmly believe I barely eluded
my pursuers by assuming this disguise,
which I have since maintained. I can't
dispossess myself of the feeling that
somehow or other it has been discover
ed that I have left Cincinnati for some
point in tho northern portion of the
state. They would never thing of look
ing for me, however, at a summer re
sort. I had hoped to get a little peaco
and rest here, but my craving for
liquor in my present nervous condition
has betrayed me, as you wculd not
have suspected me, had It not been for
my indiscretion in having drinks sent
to my room. I want to leave here now,
and I want you to help me get away.
I am becoming afraid of my own shad
ow. I must leave the United States,
and I think I had better go across the
hike to so-ne small, quiet town In Can
ada, I have, therefore, determined to
hire some man to take me to the Can
ada shore from hero under cover of
darkness. In a small boat, and land me
at some isolated spot where there aro
no customs officers to Interfere with
me. You must engage me a boat and a
discreet man to take me.'
"I dislike to engage in a transaction
of that sort," continued Mr. Rice, "but
Fawcett pleaded with me so earnestly
that he awakened my sympathy and I
finally consented to send him a man
with whom he could make such ar
rangements as he wished, which I did,
and In good time Fawcett was landed
on the Canada shore, and a certain
Put-In-Bay boatman ws $50 richer than
before the trip.
CAPTURED AT A CARNIVAL.
"After remaining In Canada a couple
of years Fawcett attended an Ice car
nival at Montreal. There was as usual
a great gathering of 'crooked' men at
the carnival, and many detectives were
In attendance to look after the fellows.
One of these detectives arrested Faw
cett for a crime of which he was not
guilty, but the arrest, unfortunately for
Fawcett, developed certain facts which
disclosed his Identity and resulted in
his detention on charge of murder, the
affair, it appears, as he intimated to
me at Put-in-Bay, having been nothing
less than a capital offense. Fawcett's
killing of the officer being held to be
without that Justification which, In
duelling countries, a strict compliance
with the requirements of the code af
fords. Fawcett, It appears, had become
despondent and utterly reckless as to
his fate. Life, as a fugitive from Jus
tice, had no further charm for him,
and he offered no resistance to his re
moval from Canada to the United
States, en route Germany. He wns
taken from Montreal at night. He had
previously, of course, been deprived of
his pocket knife and all else of his per
sonal belongings that It was thought
could, 'by any possibility, be used In
any manner to aid him to defeat the
ends of Justice. While lying on his
seat in the passenger coach he man
