RALLY OF CROOKS.
Base Bnrrest Cnthcreil br Pick
pockets ut n Iilit.
"The greatest gathering of pickpockets
that I ever 6aw and, I daresay, the grczi
est bunch that ever assembled was at tho
Maco-Cohurn fight at Long Point, Canada,
on May 111571," paid n detective who
has been in the business since 1S53 to the
New York Snu. "The big fight was held
in the vicinity "of the old lighthouse at
Long Point, and the only way to get to
the ground was by boat from Erio or Buf
falo or by walking a good many iniles
through Canada. Tho boat that left Buf
falo carried in the neighborhood of 1,000
persons. The fact that there were a large
number of thieves on the vessel was noised
about, and tho honest persons kept their
hands on their valuables all the time.
Strango to say, not a touch was made on
tho way over. Two vessels both loaded
to their fullest capacity, left Erie, Pa.,
and each of theso carried a number of
pickpockets. There were about a dozen
detectives in the crowd, among them Ijo-
ing the present Chief of Detectives Pat
rick V. Cusack of Buffalo, Captain Rogers
and Detective ?ullivan of Rochester and a
few detectives frrm Erie, Pa., nnd Toronto.
They knew that there was no use In try
ing to put a check on tho work of tho
crooks, because there wcro at least S00
professional pickpockets in the crowd.
Jnst after the spectators Ix-gan taking
their places abouc'the ring!do tho sheriff
got in-thc ring nnd mads this speech.
" 'I wishtowarn every one against pick
pockets. There are hundrateof them here.
"The sheriff stepped out of tho ring,
and several men grouped about him. The
central figure of tho group was a crook
known as Papes. When the sheriff got out
of the mix, his diamond stud, his roll of
bills and his watch were missing. He
made known his loss to one of tho detec
tives, and the detective volunteered to re
cover the property. The detective was
Captain Rogers. He sought Papas ex--plained
tho situation to him, and Papes
immediately turned over tho sheriff's
property, saj;ing that ho had taken it just
for a joke.
"I can't begin to tell you how many
pockets were picked this day. Tho light
waxed warm, and every one was excited,
so the crooks had a fine field to work in.
Pocketbooks were actually flying in tho
air. lien wcro accusing lioni st men who
Kit beside them of touching them. Scores
of diamond studs were unscrewed and
nipped. Tho most humorous incident of
tho day was the theft of 5200 in bills from
a thief who hailed from St. Louis nnd was
unknown to tho New York delegation. A
New York man named O'Donoliuo had
got iho St. Louis thief 's roll, apd ho re
turned it when he learned his mistake.
Somo men woro stripped of everything
they had and wcro unable to buy a meal
or a drink. In such cases the crooks help
ed them along with a small loan, as they
termed it. Tho refcreo of the match was
relieved of his diamond. His bills were
in an inside pocket and were not touched.
"Business lagged with tho thieves after
the fight was over. There wero hut few
pockets left to pick. Several men who had
been robbed insisted that tho honest men
should band together and attack tho
thlees for the purpose of recovering tho
stolen property. Tho detectives opposed
thisron tho ground that tho honest men
and the piepkockets wero mingled so
closely as not to bo distinguished, and,
moreover, tho thieve3 could fight and
"All tho thieves returned to Buffalo
after the fight, and word of their coming
was sent to 'police headquarters from tho
first landing place, When tho boat tied up
at the foot of Slain street, 100 policemen
and all the detective force wero thero to
meet it- About 300 or 350 thieves wero
marched out two abreast and lined up on
the wharf. They wcro told that they wero
to ba escorted out of town, and they mado
no protest. With the policemen -and de
tectives as herders and drivers tho crooks
wero inarched to the Central station and
corraled thero under close guard. When
a train for New York was mado up, tho
thioves wero escorted aboard it nnd wero
watched till it reached tho city line."

moving very slowly in the heavens in a

tomorrow the sun will be a short dis

The brilliant complexions of women in the more exclusive circles of New
York society are not explained by the theory that associates beauty and iile
ness. In fact, many leaders of the world of fashion arc hard workers. Yet
they keep their goo'd looks even when they are old. How do they manage
it? THE MISSES BELL, of 7S Fifth Avenue, New York, themselves con
nected with some of the most noted and honored families in the metropolis,
have answered the question. They have prepared for the use of women in
general, five preparations for improving the complexion and the hair.

r the capture of
Caloocan and the
type of regiment,
ns well as the
typo of leader, is
shown in this
scrap from a letter credited to Colonel
"As all the world knows before this,
we are 'up og'in it' and the long job of
licking that bumptions, insolent crew,
the Philippine iusurgents. has begun.
Kansas has been np near the band
wagon and has simply covered itself
with glory The Twentieth is the most
talked of regiment hero becanse of the
way the boys swept everything before
them at the taking of Caloocan. a town
three miles north of Manila Five Kan
sas boys have been killed and 27 wound
ed up to date.
"We buried 199 Filipinos, piled np
on the ground that the Twentieth" Kan
sas advanced over in the varions fights,
and this of conrso does not include the
dead that they managed to carry away
"Tho trouble with the Filipinos is
that they do not shcot straight, while
onr men keep their bullets down close
to the ground A good deal of our fight
ing has been at clo-e qnarters in the
dense bamboo jungle, and several tellowa
were bayoneted by the Jayhawkers. "
A trifle more in detail is the story of
Captain Bishop, who commanded a
company which look an important part
in the attack on Caloocan Says Cap
"Colonel Funston realized that suc
cess depended upon haste, and as he
hurried up and down the line urging
us on to Caloocan we realized that we
had the bravest colonel that ever led a
regiment, and a thousand brave Kansas
boys responded to the commands. As
two.of our battalion commanders were
absent Lieutenant Colonel Little and
Major W.bitman Colonel Funston left
part of theTegiment absolutely in com
mand of Major Metcalf. and it" was no
mistake he made. As we neared Caloo
can it seemed as if all the devil's imps
were in front of ris. We could hear, but
could not see The only thing that
saved us from great loss was the fact
that the natives invariably fire high
"It would have done yonr soul good
to have seen my conntry schoolteachers
as they mado these rnshes, with Ser
geant Sampson always at my right
hand nnd Sergeants Brockway and Wil

onr left flank was safe, as there was
Glasgow, with Seigeants Fox and King
looking after the second pl.itoon, and
to the right of the road was th'e big
stone cbnrch, surrounded by a seven
foot stone wall, and that was what we
were after. One more rush would take
us to it, and then 'over the walls we
would go. As Harry Todd was tinging
the bell in the church tower with lead
from his Springfield 1 critd out. 'How
many will follow me J' and every man
answered, 'I am ready I' or 'Here,
here I' and away wo went It was my
ambition to be the fiist man to scale
the wall, bnt, bless your soul, I am get
ting old, and 40 or mote brave lads sat
astride the wall shooting natives before
I got there And heiu wo rested until
the other companies, which wero pick
ing their way throngh the underbrush
and across trenches on either side of
the town, came up We were prond of
our rush on the town and prond of the
brave toys who forced' the intrench
ments right and left intrenchments
concealed by brush and vines and full
of natives with Mausers and Reming
tons." Liko the rough riders in Cuba, the
Twentieth Kansas is in danger of over
praise. It is said that Colonel Funston
boasttd that he'd make his hardy bor
derers the rough riders of the Philip
pines. They started in well. For a bat
tlecry they adopted the lesonant, sig

upon flattering friendly repot ts of tho

Two battalions were rnshed to the front
by Colonel Funston and the insurgents

the whole regiment charged gallantly

hold. When the Jayhawkers got within

on, the insnrgents gavo way. Rallying
at the captured barricades, the Kansans
wero about to storm the isolated block

PersdnallyTine leader of the Jayhawk
ers is not a war lion. His wife that
now is called him on her first inter
view a pocket edition of Mars. He is 5
feet 4 in stature, the minimum for a
soldier. Perhaps thero is something in
his very red head and very black eyes in
combination that makes him a fighter.
He has been in a dozen battles or more
in the Philippines and had S3 to his
credit with the army of Gomez. In Cn
ba lie fought with the insurgents and at
Manila is crushing them. Perhaps his
experience with them in Cuba is behind
his zeal for stamping them out in the
Colonel Fnnston was an enthusiastic
convert to the Cnban cause. Happening
to attend a mass meeting in the early
days of shouting "Cuba libre," his
heart was touched, and he offered his
services to the jnnta.
At two hours' notice, plain Private
Fnnston of the filibustering band went
on board the steamer Dauntless and
withont adventure landed in the pres
ence of Gomez. When asked what he
could do for Cuba, he said, "Fight 1"
Gomez made the little, redheaded
Ohioan, for that ho is by birth, com
mander of a Hotchkiss battery. Start
ing with tho rank of captain, he fought
his way to favor in tho eyes of Gomez
and in IS months was a lieutenant colo
nel even in that army of ornamental
Cnbans. Hs first battle was at.Cascona,
a town well defended by Spanish forts.
Fnnston had two Hotchkiss gnns and
played them upon the Spaniards with
appalling effect. The Cubans were
amazed and called him a demon. Fnn
ston's Jayhawkers at Manila are called
For a time Funston boro a charmed
life Then a shot mingled ono arm.
There was fighting in hand, and he had
five gnns to give a good account of. So
he bandaged his arm and went into
battle, making it so hot for the Sp'an
iards with Hotchkiss and dynamite
shells that t.iey set a price on his head
Joining Garcia's band, Fnnston won
his last promotion in battle, was punc
tured throngh the lungs by a Mauser
and then laid low with fever. This last
foe brought him back to the States to
recuperate, and then came the uprising
to make Cubj Iibro something more
than a mctto Fnnston asked for au
thority to raise a fighting regiment of
tho Kansas yeomanry, rough riders on
foot, and when ready to take tho field
was ordered to the coast to join the
Caloocan, Marilao river, Malolos and
Calumpit are the great battles to be
inscribed on the flag of Kansas. Private
Burton Mitchell, writing of Caloocan,
tells how the colonel led and inspired
the charge. Says he:
"The colonel (Fnnston) led this
charge on his horso with his hat off,
calling for tho men to come on, which
they did with a will. I came near get
ting plngged by a sharpshooter who
had been giving us trouble all that aft
ernoon. My companion hollered 'Duck 1'
and quick as a flash I dropped my head
down behind a wall, when a bullet
came where my head had been and hit
the ground just behind me. After the
gunboats had shelled Caloocan for
awhile we heard tho colonel's voice say
ing 'Forward 1 Advance I Double time,
tiring I' And tho way those Jayhawkers
did come throngh the town and X
miles beyond I"
It is said that Funston resigned from
the Cnban army on account of the bar
barity of the insurgents. In the last
battle under Gomez, where he was
wounded, the Cubans captured 50 of the
enemy of the class called guerrillas and
condemned them to death. Funston

hobbled to headquarters and pleaded for
the lives of the condemned, bnt his pc-,
tition was refused He then sworo he
would never strike another blow in a
cause waged in a manner so barbarous.
Tho first personal exploit of Colonel
Funston in the Philippines was at the
Marilao river in February. With his
command he reached the banks of that
stream and found the enemy on the op
posite bank in good position. Selecting
20 men who could swim, Funston told
them to follow, and. holding his revolv
er up out of water, swam across. His
soldiers placed their rifles upon legs and
pushed the logs before them as they
swam On reaching the enemy's side

captnred SO Filipinos , A later exploit,

When Poe Wns Hnnsry.
Gabriel Harrison, who was a popular
yonng actor in the forties and also an
artist and politician and friend of cele
brated men. told this story of Edgar
"I asked Poe several times when he
was at the studio to sit for his portrait,
but ho always refused on the ground
that his clothes were too shabby. But
one afternon I caught him in an un
usually complacent mood and obtained
the original of the engraving you see
there on the wall. This was bnt three
years before Poe's death, and ho was
not at all prosperous.
"I recollect that enco 'we were walk
ing up town together late in tho day,
when Poe began to sway from side to
side and then stopped. He said he felt
faint. We went into a cafe, where we
had a glass of wine and a biscuit. Poe
then told me that his sudden dizziness
was the result of not having eaten any
thing since early morning."
