The Fastest Sped Attained by Birds safl
-The Rocky Mountain swift is proba
bly the fastest flying bird in the coun
try," said a traveler, who has been
spending a pood part of his time among
the Rockies. "I consider myself a
pretty good shot on the wing, but in
nearly every instance before 1 can get
my gun in readiness to shoot it is out
of range and gone. It's a flyer and no
Comparatively little is known about
the exact speed of birds. Every body
almost has observed the lightning-like
velocity with which the falcon sweeps
down on his prey, but no record is ob
tainable of the speed with which the
descent is made. An instance is known
however, where a falcon was loosed at
the Canary Islands, and was captured
sixteen hours afterward at Teneriffe.
The distance between these places is
about 750 miles in round numbers, and
a speed of four fifths of a mile a min
ute was made.
The best record of the homing pigeon
in early times was made in 1828. Fifty
six pigeons were liberated at London
at 4:34 in the morning. At 10:25 they
were at Liege, Belgium. This would
give a 9peeil of sixty-five feet a second,
or thirteen-beventeenths of a mile in a
minute. The race in which the largest
number of birds took part was the na
tional Belgian race, when 1,674 pigeons
were liberated at one time at Morceus,
south of Bordeaux, at 4:12 in the morn
ing. The first of the lot arrived home
at Brusklo at 4:37 p. m. The distance
between these two places is about 510
miles. The rate of speed, notwith
standing the long distance, being about
the same as that made by the birds
flying from London to Liege.
The fastest 11 vers are probably the
swift, of which the common chimney
swift, or swallow, as it is erroneously
called, is a typical example, though it
is not the swiftest of its family. The
common black crow, which may be
seen in large numbers in the country
in the spring and which gives the
farmers so much trouble about corn
planting time, is comparatively slow in
speed. About twenty miles an hour is
the highest speed which it ever attains.
The American e.i ;!e is of course
among the fastest of fast birds. Three
minutes after he leaves the earth in his
upward flight he is lost to view. Sup
posing the spread of his wing to be
four feet, and the angle of' vision one
minute, a mathematical calculation
shows that this would give him a speed
of seventy-six feet a second; very near
ly a mile a minute.
The speed of fishes is, on the other
hand, almost an unknown quantity,
being as Prof. G. Brown Good says,
very difficult to measure. "If you
could get a fish," said Prof. Goodo,
and put him in a trough of water one
thousand feet long and start him at one
-end and make him swim to the other
-without stopping the information could
be easily obtained, but fish are unintelli
gent and they won't do this. Esti
mates of the speed of fish consequently
are only approximated, and more or
less founded on guessing. You can
tell, however, at a glance whether a fish
is built for speed or not. A fast fish
looks trim and pointed, like a yacht.
Its head is conical shaped, and its fins
fit down close to its body, like a knife
blade into its handle. Fish with large
heads, bigger than their bodies, and
with short, stubby fins are of course
built for slow motion."
"What are the fastest fishes?"
"The predatory fish, those which live
on prey, are the fastest swimmers. The
food fishes are generally among the
slowest and are consequently easily
captured. Their loss is recom pensed,
however, by the natural law which
makes them very prolific in reproduc
tion. Dolphins have been known to
swim around an ocean steamer, and it
is quite safe to say that their speed is
twenty miles an hour, but it may be
twice as much. The bonito is a fast
swimming fish. Just what its speed is
I do not know. The head of the goose
fish is very large twenty times as big
as its body. It moves about very little
and swims at the bottom of the ocean.
ThosSpanish mackerel is one of the fast
est' of the food fishes. Its body is cone
shaped and as smooth as burnished
metal. Its speed is as matchless as the
dolphin, and in motion it cuts the water
like a yacht" Washington Post.
Museum ot Princess' Garters.
A curious collection of ladies' garters
is kept at the Hohenzollern museum at
Berlin. Whenever there is a wedding
in the Hohenzollern family a number
of these short silk garters with the
initials of the newly-married princess
are distributed among friends. The
collection was begun by William
I., and the oldest garter is that which
was woven on the occasion of
the marriage ot Prince Fried rich
Wilhelm Ludwig with the daugh
ter of the reigning Duke of Anhalt
Bernburg, in 1817. There are twelve
garters from the reign of Frederick
William 1IL and ten from that of his
successor, Frederick William IV. They
are all made of ribbed silk of different
colors, braided with gold or silver, and
many of them are finished off at both
.ends by heavy fringes Pall Mall Ga

a little to straighten things out."
CONFESSED TO SEVERAL.
"Does Mr. Xunnemacher of Milwaukee
know all these details?"
"Frederiksen confessed to Mr. Nunne
macber and to Mr. C. D. Kendrick of
Milwaukee a? well as to myself that he
had been issuing fraudulent deeds and
mortgages. I was in favor of having
him arrested, but the others thought the
affair could be tided over. We did not

fraud, and supposed $400,000 or $500,

Dr. Rice intimates that he has the ad
dresses of seventy-five men who signed
mortgages for laud they uever owned.
To these men Frederiksen paid $5 apiece
to pnt their names to blank mortgages.
Many vague rumors are heard concern
ing the names and number of Frederik
sen's victims. That they are numerous
and extend all over the United States
and even to Europe there is ample evi
dence. The rich and poor have suffered
alike. In bis choice of victims Mr.
Frederiksen seemed to have been entire
ly impartial. They range from the mil
lionaire banker to the poor laboring man
eudeavoriug to secure a home and the
frugal servaut girl who has tried to find
a good investment for her bard earned
Among the Chicago victims S. W.
Kawson, the banker, is undoubtedly
numbered, and his name is heard most
freriuenth' in that connection. Other
Chicago names mentioned as heavy
losers through their advances on or in
vestments in worthless securities are E.
G. Southworth, the Joliet steel man, the
Fort Dearborn National Bank, and the
Chicago Loan and Trust company. Those
who claim to be on the inside hint that
the Chicago list is a long one and con
tains many prominent men.
Chicago and Milwaukee furnished the
greater number of big victims, but St.
Paul, New York, and other cities are
said to have contributed largely. Fred-
ericksen has been south several times
since the formation of the land company
and also east for the purpose of floating
the stock of the company. Dr. Rice says
that the victims number hundreds of
The following note received by the
Tribune yesterday will give some idea of
the extent of Frederiksen's operations:

Tribune. Will you kindly state that our
interest in the affairs of N. C. Frederik

attorneys for certain creditors in Holland
to whom mortgages have been sold by
Pickham & Brown.
wishes to be relieved.
Mr. Haughan, the receiver, appeared
before Judge Shepard yesterday and
asked leave to resign his position as re
ceiver. He stated that since his appoint
ment jnov. 4 he had found no property
in the concern except 982.39 in money
and a tin box and some paper boxes con
taining papers of no apparent value and
various securities pledged to a great
number of persons scattered over the
country. To realize from them would
require an outlay of thousands of dollars
for expenses in getting them into shape.
The creditors had refused to advance
money to pay the necessary costs of an
investigation into the nature and amounts
of the securities. It was throwing good
money after bad. Judge Sbepbard told
him to give notice of his motion to be
allowed to resign to all parties interested
and come in again.
The Oberg case was the first to attract
attention to Frederiksen's peculiar meth
ods, and may be given as an example of
one among thousands that are similiar.
Andrew Oberg was one of Frederiksen's
poor countrymen, so many of whom
were drawn into the net of this Napoleon
of land sharks. He was a poor farmer
at Muskegon, Mich., and was induced to
purchase a farm in Minnesota from Fred
eriksen. The deed was drawn to 120
acres of land in Cottonwood county,
Minnesota, Sept. 4, 1SS7, the purchase
price being 31.300. Oberg paid 8800 in
cash, and gave a mortgage, due in 1892,
for the balance 8500. He afterwards sent
$200 to Frederiksen in part payment. In
January, 1889, Oberg received a notice
from the German Savings Bank of Dav
enport, la., that a payment on a mort
gage for 8500 held by them was due. He
wrote to Frederiksen about it. and the !
latter replied :
Send 8300 and I will get the mortgage
Oberg sent the 8300 the latter part of j
January. Several months elapsed and
he did not receive his mortgage. He
wrote in vain to Frederiksen, and finally
sent a letter to the editor of the
Svens&a Tribune, in this city. Mr.
C. D. Linderborg, the editor, addressed a
letter to Frederiksen setting forth the
facts. The next day Aag. 16 Freder
iksen replied, "per P. R. Peters,'7 as follows:

We have written the Iowa hank for the

Tuesday eame and past and the mort
gage did not arrive. Oberg came to the
city, and Aug. 23 had Freberikseu ar
rested before Justice Going. The case
was compromised and did not come for
trial. Fiederiksen sued the Srmslti Trib
une for 850,000. No declaration was filed,
however, and the suit lapsed last week.
The Svewka Tribune has in its safe an
affidavit made by Oberg, which recites
the facts just set forth aud proceeds to
state that when Oberg came to the city
to prosecute Frederiksen he was intro
duced to Adolph Lund. The latter was
at the time Frederiksen's attorney, the
affidavit states. Oberg stated the case to
Lund, and Lund, concealing the fact
that he was Frederiksen's attorney,
agreed to accept the case. Valuable pa
pers, including all the correspondence
between Oberg and Frederiksen, was
placed in Lund's bands, and Lund after
waids refused to return them. Oberg
then met Frederiksen in Lund's office,
and the affidavit states that Lnnd assist
ed Frederiksen in intimidation, and be
tween them they compelled Oberg to
sign a paper retracting all charges and
withdrawing the prosecution.

With burnished belt and Jingling spurs
And waving sombrero,
Alone, upon my bounding steed,
Acioss the plains I go;
By deep ravine and time worn bluff
I speed along my way.
And face with pride the sportive winds,
As wild and free as they.
The city fop may dress and fan j.
The student vex bis brow,
The toller swing the ax and sledge,
The farmer guide the plow.
The crowded street, the quiet farm
Have lost their charms forme;
My richest treasure is the thought
That I am wild and free.
The plains, the plains, the rolling plains !
And pleasures that they bring!
I love to sweep the broad expanse
Like eagle on the wing;
To dash along the high divide,
The boundless scene to view;
The plains below, and np above,
The sky forever blue.
Adown the slope, across the vale,
Where flowers nod in the breeze.
With carelAs band I turn my steed
To yonder clump of trees;
I seek the cool, sequestered shade,
Where crystal waters gleam,
I stoop upon the grassy bank
To kiss the dimpled stream.
The beauties of this shady nook
Bring back the days of yore,
A fair young face among the flowers
That I shall see no more.
Her voice is in the gentle stream
That murmurs sweetly by,
And on the trembling, sun-lit wave,
The splendor of her eye.
My faithful steed, my faithful steed.
Save me this vain regret !
Bear me away across the waste
And help me to forget.
Away, away, I scorn the claims
That hold the world in awe;
I am the monarch of the plains!
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah !
With weapons bright and jingling spurs
And saving sombrero,
Alone, upon my bounding steed,
Across tbe plains I go.
Lost to the vain, inconstant world.
As it is lost to me.
My heart bounds proudly at the thought
That I am wild and free.
