RALLY OF CROOKS.
Bnsc Harvest Gnthercd by riclc

"The greatest Bothering of pickpockets
that I ever 6av and, I daresay, the grcHt
est bunch that ever assembled was at tho
Mncc-Cobum fight at Long Point, Canada,
on May 111371," ?aid a detective who
has been in the business since 1S35 to the
New York Sou. "The big fight was held
in the vicinity "of tho 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 miles
through Canada. The boat that left Buf
falo carried In the neighborhood of 1,000
persons. Tho fact that thero 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.
Strange to say, not a touch was made on
tho way over. Two vcsel, 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 bo
ing the present Chief of Detectives Pat
rickV. Cusack of Buffalo, Captain Rogers
and Detective Sullivan of Rochester and a
few detectives frrni Erie, Pa., and Toronto.
They knew that there was no use in try
ing to put a check on tho work of tho
crooks, because there were at least 300
professional pickpockets in the crowd.
Just after the spectators began taking
tnclr places anout tne nngiuo me snerm
got in.the ring and made this speech:
" 'I wish to warn every oneacainsc picK-
pockets. Thereare hundredsof them here.'
"Tho sheriff stepped out ol trie 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 tho property. The detective was
Captain Rogers. He sought Papes, ex-
plained tho situation to him, and Papes
immediately turned over tho sheriff's
property, sajing that ho had taken it just
for a joke.
"I can't begin to tell you how many
pockets were picked this day. Tho fight
waxed warm, and every one was excited,
so the crooks had a fine field to work in.
Pocketbooks were actually flying in tho
nir. lien were accusing hom st men who
Kit beside them of touching them. Scores
of diamond studs were unscrewed and
nipped. Tho most humorous incident, of
the day was the theft of S200 in bills from
a thief who hailed from St. Louis and was
unknown to the New York delegation. A
New York man named O'Donoluio had
got tho St. Louis thief's roll, apd ho re
turned it when ho learned his mistake.
Some men were stripped of everything
they had and were unable to buy a meal
or a drink. In such cases tho 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
tho fight was over. There were but few
pockets left to pick. Several men who had
been robbed Insisted that tho honest men
should band together and attack tho
thieves for the purpose of recovering tho
stolen property. Tho detectives opposed
this" on tho ground that tho honest men
and tho piepkockets were mingled so
closely as not to bo distinguished, and,
moreover, tho thievc3 could fight and
"All tho thieves returned to Buffalo
after tho fight, and word of their coming
was sent to'polico headquarters from tho
first landing place. When the boat tied np
at the foot of Main street, 100 policemen
and all the detective force were thero to
meet it. About 300 or 350 thioves wen
marched out two abreast and lined up on
the wharf. They were told that thoy were
to ba escorted out of town, and they mndo
no protest. With tho policemen .and de
tectives as herders and drivers tho crooks
were marched to the Central station and
corraled thero under close guard. When
a train for New York was made up, tho
thioves were escorted aboard it nnd were
watched till it reached tho city line."

that is to say, the time which elapses
after the sun is seen exactly south in

Now, in consequence of the earth's

tomorrow the snn will be a shoit 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 idle
ness. In fact, many leaders of the world of fashion arc hard workers. Yet
they keep their good 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 tha
type of regiment,
as 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 ag'in it' and the long job of
lickimr that bnmptions, insolent crew,
tho Philippine insurgents, has begun.
Kansas has been up near the band
wagon and has simply covered itself
with glory The Twentieth is the most
talked of regiment hero hecanse of the
way the boys twept 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 np to date.
"We bnried 199 Filipinos, piled up
on the ground that the Twentieth" Kan
sas advanced over in the varjons fights,
and this of course does not include the
dead that they managed to carry away
"Tho trouble with the Filipinos is
that they do not shcot straight, while
our men keep their bullets down close
to tho ground A good deal of onr fight
ing has been nt close quarters in the
dense bamboo jungle, and several teliowa
were bayoneted by the Jayhawkers. "
A trifle more in detail is the story of
Captain Bishop, who commanded a
company which took 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 thonsund brave Kansas
boys responded to the commands. As
two.of our battalion commanders were
absent Lieutenant Colonel Little and
Major W.hitniun Colonel Funston left
part of theTegiment absolutely in com
mand of Major Metcalf, and it was no
mistako he made. As we Beared 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 your soul good
to have seen my country schoolteachers
as they made these rushes, with Ser
geant Sampson always at my right
hand and Sergeants Brockway and Wil
son urging their sections on We knew
onr left flank was safe, as there was
Glasgow, with Seigeants Fox and King
looking after tho second platoon, and
to the right of the road was th'e big
stone cbnrcb, surrounded by a seven
foot stone wall, and that was what we
were after. One more rush would take
ns to it, and then "over the walls we
wonld go. As Harry Todd was ringing
the bell in the church tower with lead
from his Springfield 1 cried out. 'How
many will follow meV and every man
answered, 'I am ready!" or 'Here,
here 1' and away wo went It was my
ambition to be the liist man to scale
the wall, bnt. bless your sonl, I am get
ting old, and 40 or more brave lads sat
astride the wall shooting natives before
I got there And heic we rested until
the other companies, which were pick
ing their way through the underbrush
and across trenches on either side of
the town, came up We were proud of
our rush on Iho town and prond of the
brave boys who forced the intrench
ments right and left intrenchments

of natives with Mansers and Reming
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 tho rough riders of the Philip
pines. They started in well. For a bat
tlecry they adopted the lesonant, sig
nificant legend, "Rock chalk, Jayhawk,

It is not necessary to depend solely
npon flattering friendly repoits of tbp
doings of Colonel Funston and his Jay
hawkers to make out a case of heroism
for the Twentieth Kansas. In the re

Tho insurgent attack on the night of
Feb. 4 began on the Kansas outpost.
Two battalions were rnshed to tho front
by Colonel Fnnston and the insurgents
held in check for the night Next day
the whole regiment charged gallantly
through the gardens and bamboo thick

hold. When the Jayhawkers got within
CO to 70 yards, firing as they pushed
on, the insurgents gavo way. Rallying
at the captured barricades, the Kansans
were about to storm the isolated block
honses beyond when they were recalled.
Next day, however, it advanced to the
barricades and held them. One com
pany went forward into the brush and

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
eoldier. Perhaps there 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 23 to his
credit with the army of Gomez. In Cu
ba lie fought with the insurgents and at
Manila is crushing them. Perhaps, his
experience with them in Cuba is behind
his zeal fpr stamping them out in the
Colonel Fnnston was an enthusiastic
convert to the Cuban canse. 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 junta.
At two hours' notice, plain Private
Fnnston of the filibustering band went
on board tho steamer Dauntless and
without 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 cartain, he fought
his way to favor in the eyes of Gomez
and in IS months was a lieutenant colo
nel even in that army of ornamental
Cnbans. His first battle was at.Cascona.
a town well defended by Spanish forts.
Fnnston had two Hotchkies gnns and
played them upon the Spaniards with
appalling effect. The Cnbans 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 mangled ono arm.
There was fighting in hand, and he had
five guns to give a good account of. So
he bandaged his arm and went into
battle, making it so hot for the Span
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 Inngs 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 Cuba libro bomething more
than n "mctto Fnnston asked for au
thority to raise a fighting" regiment of
tho Kansas yeomanry, rough riders on
foot, and when ready to take the field
was ordered to the coast to join the
Caloocan, Marilao river. Malolos and
Cnlnmpit 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 horse with his hat off,
calling for tho men to come on, which
they did with a will. I came near get
ting plugged by a sharpshooter who
had been .giving us trouble all that aft
ernoon. My companion hollered 'Dock 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 the colonel's voice say
ing 'Forward 1 Advance I Double time,
tiring I" And tho way those Jayhawkers
did come throngh the town and 1J
miles beyond 1"
It is said that Fnnston resigned from
the Cuban army on account of the bar
barity of the insurgents. In ,the last
battlo 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 pe-.
tition was refused. He then swore he
would never strike another blow in a
cause waged in a manner so barbarous.
The first personal exploit of Colonel
Fnnston 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, Fnnston told
them to follow, and. holding his revolv
er np 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
the little band of Kansans charged and
captnred SO Filipinos . A later exploit,
towing a rope across a stream under fire
nm the cnomy, has been rewarded by
promotion to the rank of brigadier gen
eral Gr.oitGE L. Kilmer.

that his clcthes were too shabby. Bnt

years before Poe's death, and he was
not at all prosperous.
"I recollect that once we were walk

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
