Forthe Sheriff From Lima. Was an
Sheriff B. H. Bokhart, of Lima,
Allen county, came to Akron Friday
afternoon to arrest a paper hanger
named W. H. Reynolds, who had
been indicted by the Allen county
grand jury on a charge of embezzle
ment. He was successful in placing
Reynolds under arrest and took him
to the Erie depot.
Reynolds acted very friendly with
the sheriff, so no hand cuffs were
put on him. But while the sheriff
was buying two tickets to Lima the
prisoner quietly slipped away. Ak
ron policemen scouted last night for
Reynolds, but could not succeed in

Demon Says That He
Will Not Work.
Guard Blocker's Assailant Rebellious
at Being Kept In Cage.
Warden Coffin is seriously consid
ering the idea of putting the four de
mons to work in their steel cage,
and in that event the real war will
commence, says the Columbus Dis
patch. The warden will probably intro
duce the work of preparing broom
corn for the workers on the broom
contract. Considerable of that kind
of work is necessary, and it is be
lieved that it would be better for the
men. The men will probably fight to
do nothing. Atkinsc n and O'Xeil have
not objected so much as the other
two demon, who have always been
noted for their ambition to do noth
ing. Marlatt has never taken kindly to
work since he was on the stone pile
when lie first arrived at the prison.
It was while working there that he
first rebelled against work of any
kind, and that led to the fight with
Guard Short. Guard Short made an
effort to take him to the cellar for
punishment, and Ira went for him
like it demon. However, tho prompt
interference of other guards pre
vented any serious ivsulls. Since
that time he ha practically done
nothing but live at the expense of
the stale. Ira is not eutirely pleased
with his environments, and that has
a tendency to make him still more
irascible. "When talking with
"Warden Coffin he said: "I-l-I don't
k-k-k-k-know what you want my to
j associate with t-t-thosed-d e-c-c-
convicts for?" Ira has always
maintained that he was not a crim
inal and that he was wrongly con
victed for the crime of murder.
Hurley has notified the officials
that he will not work while confined
in the cells. He expressed n desire,
however, to go to work in one of the
foundries, but that will not be per
mitted. The feeling prevails among
the officers that the four men are en
joying their life of idleness. They
are now quartered better than before
for their room is light, airy, plenty
of room to exercise, and water in
their room, but they are rebellious
at the idea of being treated like wild
animals and placed continually in a
cage for exhibition.
To obviate that, as much as possi
ble, the warden has issued orders not
to permit visitors to go near the
cage, and they are turned off to the
dining room before coming very near
the cage in which the four men are
confined. However, in marching in
that direction the cage and men are
in plain view of all visitors, but they
are not permitted to go any closer.so

To a Question $
Kelyn Carpenter was a girl of decided
opinions. One day as she was walking
honicwnri! suddenly a flood of sweet
mns seeuied to soothe her ruffled feel
ligs. A lark, Imprisoned in a narrow
race, poured forth to the heedless world
imt-jide its soul of melody through hard
bars of wire.
The sense of relief which had stolen
oven the gill pave place to one of anger,
combined with some odd satisfaction.
LTere at last was an opportunity to do
good, even if it were but obtaining the
freedom of one poor, hopeless lark. And
who more i!el (o the task than she,
the president, M-lf constituted only three
days since, of the X Society For the
Promotion of Christian Cliarity Toward
AnimaU? Crossing the road with decid
ed step, she eutered a little shop, over
the door of which the bird sang on. It
was a cobbler's workshop. A little, bent
old man, with large spectacles on his
wrinkled nose and deft lean fingers that
moved nimbly over the rough leather,
put aside his work and shuffled forward
to the counter. lie moved slowly and
with difficulty, for his old limbs were get
ting past their woik. Pleasantly, but
rather curiously, he bade her "Good
day," scarce hoping for work in his poor
shop from so smart and nicely dressed a
lady. Evelyn felt somewhat uneasy at
the old man's harmless aspect.
"This bird," she began rather timidly;
"is it yours?"
The cobbler looked at the cage with
visible j Me.
"Yes, jes. miss;-my bird sure enough,
and a fine bird too. Not a better bird in
all N , miss," lie rubbed his hands
and smiled genially. Evelyn was silent
as he continued half to himself, as old
"Four years it is I've had him; four
years, and scarce a day off his song. It
was my boy's, my Dick's youngest that's
gone for a sailor. It seems only yester
day he came in just as it might have been
you, mis, today, with the bird in his
hand, and says he
"But beggin your pardon, you was say-ing"-
"What will you take for the bird?" she
asked, not feeling quite so sure of her
cause now she had actually plunged into
"Wouldn't sell him, miss. Wouldn't
take $o for him, not if I was starving."
Evelyn took out her purse and counted
its contents 30 cents. She drew out a
quarter, saying iu firm and superior
tones', "Not a cent moie."
The old man looked at her kindly and
explained gently, as if to n child (it was
really very irritating):
"No, miss. I don't want to sell him. 1
was say in, you see, it was my lad gave
me the little bird before he went to sea.
No, I'm not likely to part with him for
that, dearie," indicating the coin with
smiling contempt. "Aye, and him all the
chick or child 1'ie got left since Dick
died. It 'minds me o' my lad when I
hear him sing so bright. Often when I'm
feeling lonesome nnd low spirited he'll
chime iu so cheery and set me thiukin
how my boy's comin soon eh, dear; eh,
'dear! No, you can't have him, but never
mind, never mind." He nodded kindly,
as if to comfort her in her disappoint
ment. Evelyn's patience could stand it no lon
ger. "Do you suppose I want to keep the
poor bird?" she broke forth. "I want to
buy it to give it back Us liberty, to let it
bo free in the fields and the blue sky.
Surely you know how very, very cruel it
is to confine a creature made to soar and
sing at the very gates of heaven in a nar
row cage with scarce room to turn."
This was deliveied fluently, being a
verbatim quotation from her bpeech at
the opening meeting of tie before men
tioned society. "
"Poor, miserable bhd!" she concluded,
apostrophizing the unconscious lark.
The cobbler, simple soul, was a good
deal taken aback at this convincing ti
rade. He attempted a defense, however.
"Nay: he's not miserable. Hear to him
sing. Would he siug like that if he
"Yes," cried Evelyn, "he sings because
he longs to be free. That is the song of
despair, and not of joy."
The old fellow's face fell. Her elo
quence half convinced him. Evelyn felt
rather heated, and wanted, she didn't
know why, to get out of the shop.
"Come," she said, "here's o0 cents, and
far more than the wietched bird is
"Nay," he said, sadly. "I'm not going
to sell him. He's like an old friend to me.
and he loves me too, that he does."
"Keep your bird, then!" ciied the angry-reformer.
"Keep it, and let it die in
its miserable prison. Some day you will
perhaps lepent your wanton cruelty!"
With which grandiloquent threat she de
parted, with lather more haste than dig
nity. That night, getting into bed, Evelyn
came to tho conclusion that she had made
rather a poor show.
She had also a lurking idea thnt her
motive had nut been quite so much the
cause of righteousness as the pleasure of
reporting pi ogress to her new society.
Her passionate words kept lecurring to
hor mind as she lay sleepless half through
the night. She wondered if little birds
had their duty to do, as she had; wheth
er, pcihapa. in giving pleasure to a lonely
old man's declining days the lark might
not be unconsciously doing its great
maker's bidding in the place for w Inch lie
intended it. She was, she decided, over
young to Judge so hastily. And, being a
thoughtful and conscientious girl, she
bravely resolved to go the next morning,
humble her pride to the dut. aud own
herself in the wrong.
About 0 o'clock the next morning, walk
ing with rather a red face up the narrow
street, she perceived the old fellow stand
ing at his door with the empty cage in
his hand. He was gning toward the sky,
and she saw u tear trickle down bis wrin
kled check. He turned ns she appioach
ed and smiled mournfully In answer to
her inquiring glance.
"Maye you was right, misx," lie said;
"maybe." H passed into bin shop ns a

Evelyn turned away abruptly. Never
in her life had she been so much ashamed

Just how much the fellow would eat

growing quite interesting when the fol

"Will you have some of the plum

The SlRnnture of William Slinkex
jpenre Tlint Adnitrnl Luce Hail.
At the time of the New Orleans ex
position, in the winter of 1SS4-5, Ad
miral Luce was in command of the
north Atlantic squadron aud was sent
down there to add to the gayety of
nations, which no other old seadog
could do better than he. Upon his re
turn the flagship was anchored in New
York bay, where it was visited by
many people. One day a party came
aboard which included among others
a very pretty girl and a very dignified
and learned Englishman. As Admiral
Luce was entertaining them in his
cabin he asked the pretty girl If she
would like to see an original autograph
of William Shakespeare.
At this the dignified and learned
Englishman pricked up his ears and
remarked that he had made a study of
the autographs of Shakespeare and
was positive there was no authentic
example in America. Admiral Luce re
plied that he was very positive his was
authentic and thnt its genuineness had
never been questioned. This made the
Britisher quite mad, and he delivered
a lecture on the fraudulent autographs
and manuscripts that were brought
over to America and exhibited as orig
inals. "Well," replied the admiral, "I am
convinced that ray autograph of Wil
liam Shakespeare is genuine, and 1
am going to have the pleasure of show
ing it to this young lady." Whereup
on he went to his desk, took out his
visitor's hook, turned back a few pages
and then pointed but tho signature,
"William Shakespeare, mayor of New
Orleans, Jan. 12, 1885." The English
man gave a painful gasp and retired.
Tle Clever Roman.
It fceeuis quite surprising that the an
cient Romans did not acquire the art of
printing with movable types, inasmuch
as they came so very near to it. They
had wooden blocks carved with words
in reverse, by means of which they
stamped those words on pottery, while
the latter was as yet unbaked and s-oft.
Incidentally it may lie mentioned that
they knew the modern method of
mending broken pots by 1110:1 us of riv
ets, and many pieces of pottery thus
restored have been dug nn.
