WORKINGS OF THE CAMORRA
How an EnnUshman Wa Politely
Mulcted a1 $300 by Italian
A paean of rejoicings baa gon up
In print over the verdict on the Ca
morra prisoners At Vitcrbo, and it Is
stated rather previously, I fear that
the great secret eoclety of Italy has
been sootched. That Naples will no
longer be Its headquarters lo proba
ble, but it Is so widely spread over
the whole of Italy that It can be no
more killed by imprisoning its Nea
politan leaders than you can kill an
octopus by cutting off one of its ten
tacles. The society has local branches
In every town of importance, and it
udupts its methods to the status of
the people whom it bleeds.
How polite the Camorrlsts can be a
true tale of how an Englishman sub
scribed to its funds will show. The
Englishman in question, a married
man, took a house In one of the sea
port towns of Italy, not Naples, and
brought his English furniture with
him, A month or two after he had
taken up residence, a ery polite Ital
ian gentleman called on him and pre
sented him with a bill for $300 for
furniture bought from an Italian firm.
Tho Englishman said that there must
Ive some mistake, for he had bought
no furniture in Italy, and his visitor
then explained that the bill was the
means by which he might subscribe to
'he local branch of the Camorra, and
litis obtain its protection. -There was
no hurry about the matter, said the
jiollto Italian, and if the Englishman
lid not care to pay at once the matter
might stand over for six mouths.
The Englishman went to his consul,
who referred him to the local bead of
the police. The local head of the po
.Ice, talking as an official, promised
him every protection if he did not in
tend to give the money, but as a prl
ate Individual, suggested to him that
300 wbb not very much to pay to
avoid all the anxiety that was entailed
by being in the black books of the Ca
morra. The Englishman paid his $300
and holds the bill, duly receipted, for
purely imaginary furniture, bought
from a purely Imaginary Italian firm.
CLAIMED FOR NEW YORK CITY
Origin of Popular Expreslon, "Let Her
Go, Gallagher!" Said to Have
The expression "Let her go, Galla
gher" is in UBe in nearly every city
of the United States, and has traveled
to foreign countries, yet it Is doubtful
if many can tell the origin of It. A
iroup of men recently met in New
York city and soon were talking of
events that happened many years ago.
One of them told the story of "Let
her go. Gallagher," and vouches for
the truth of it, as he was present at
the time it began.
"A number of delegates," said the
veteran, "representing the Chicago
lre department came to visit the
New York fire laddies in the early
70s. They were shown about Are
'leadquarlers' and Inspected the differ
ent systems. Then they desired to
?ee some of the crack companies.
Their escortB brought them to hook
tnd ladder No. 14, in East 125th
'treet, and while examining the ap
paratus an alarm was sounded from
the West Side. Capt. Henry M. Jones
lade the visitors jump on the sides
yt the fire truck and accompany the
Ire fighters to the blaze.
"Peter Gallagher was the driver of
the team, and he quickly got to his
feat on the truck. It swung out to
the street, and the driver guided the
horses to straighten out the ponder
ous machine. When in a position to
take full speed and dash to the place
where the alarm was sounded Captain
Jones yelled to the driver, 'Let her go,

to the body,"
ADDED TO THE GOOD TIME
Bear Story, Though Short, Was a
Thing of Consequence to Thoso
There were" six stalwart pioneers
-who settled in Upshur county, West
Virginia, long before tho war, when
thero wasn't "a stick amiss" and
hunting waB good; They were brothers
and their name was Phillips.
Each fall after hog-klling time
they held a family reunion, at which
a feast fit for the gods was partaken
of in silence, except for the blessing,
which was always asked by the eld
est brother. They did not believe in
much talk or levity. When they Bpoka
It was usually In monosyllables. After
dinner they would sit around the big
log fireplace, tilted back In split bot
tom chairs, and smoke their corncob
pipes in silence until it was time to
go home and do the chores.
At one of the reunions something
of unusual interest occurred--one of
the boys told a bear story. While
sitting around the fire smoking one
of the brothers pushed up his sleeve,
exposing a .badly lacerated arm. The
five gazed at It in respectful silence
for a few moments. Their experience
in tho mountains told them that their
brother had a hand to hand fight
with a bear. One of them opened the
ensuing 'dialogue with:
"Over thar," Jerking his thumb
back over his shoulder in the direc
tion of Beech mountain.
After this bear story of five words
they Biiioked In silence until It was
time to go home. For months after
that reunion they would remark to
visiting neighbors that they had "a
powerful fine time at Eben'a re
union." It was remarkable, because they
had had a bear story In addition to
the blessing, which was a powerful
lot of talk for these silent men.
TRACE ALPHABET FAR BACK
Belief That It Had Its Origin With
the Phoenicians Proved to Be
a Wrong One.
In a lecture at the Royal Institute
Prof. Flinders Pletrle attacked tho
long acepted theory that the origin of
the alphabet is to be found lu Phoeni
cia, whence it came fr'am Egyptian
According to Professor Petrie, the
researches of the last twenty years,
have shown that" signs were earlier
than pictures and that it was tho sign
that survived to become tho alpha
and beta of one civilization and the
A D C of another.
Just as the philologist had discov
ered one entire system of languages,
bo the alpbabetarlan had discovered
In the diversity of alphabets an orig
inal prototype of all. In Professor
Petrle's words, "The Phoenicians are
people of yesterday compared with
those who wrote the signs that are
the origin- of all alphabets."
It was to pottery, said the profes
sor, that Egyptologists and others
were indebted for these slgnSj and
their dovelopmenPwas worked out on
these lines. Flatnose made a pot and
put a mark on it to show that it was
his. In time, because it was his mark,
the sign stood for Flatnose himself,
and then the sign became attached to
a sound irrespective' of the thing it
self. Gradually the wearing down
went on until the sign stood, not for
a sound, but a syllable, and then for
The signs, of course, were not an
alphabet; that did not arrive until
perhaps 1,000 D. C, whereas signs
were fouud in early prehistoric Egypt,
probably 7,000 B. C Proofs of this
common origin were plentiful, for the
signs spread by trade far north and
south, and appeared similarly In
Runic, Iberian and Karlan, and yet
were unknown In Phoenician.
