on the bed, covered with a sheet, she In?
vestigated and discovered that the child's
wardrobe of clothing had been left In

To Raise Special Reward
For Miss Mullen's Assailants
The Times-Dispatch will, at
the suggestion of a well-known
citizen, receive subscriptions
to a special fund to supple?
ment the reward of$500 of?
fered by Mayor Taylor for
the capture of the assailants
of Miss Mullan and Mr. Shel
ton. The gentleman suggesting
the raising of such a supple?
mental fund sends his chock for
$5.00, and Tho Times-Dispatch
very gladly adds ?25 more. The
fund, therefore, stands :
C. L. Drosto.$ 5.00
Further subscriptions will be
gladly received and acknowl?
This is Mr. Droste's letter,
written on Saturday, but not re?
ceived by us until yesterday :
Edtor of The Tlmes-Dlspatch!
Sir,?I see that Mayor Taylor
and possibly Governor Montacue
will offer a reward for the capture
of the three fiends who assaulted
last nlfjht Miss Mullan and Mr.
Shelton; but while this ia emi?
nently satisfactory, It seems to
me It would be well to make the
reward as nearly commensurate
with the enormity of the crime ne
possible, and I therefore propose
to you to start In your paper a
subscription to augment the re?
ward, and thus to Increase the
probability of a capture. In cace
you should accept my proposal
please use the enclosed check,
Yours very truly,

traversed the marble halls of the
Vatican, thronged with weeping
cardinals and prelates. Through
the ante-chambers, past the
throne room with its vacant
golden chair, into the room where
the green silken curtains half
concealed the little bed upon
which his Holiness died, I ad?
vanced through the throng of
silent, prayerful attendants and

A glance showed Leo resting
peacefully, his head upraised by
two pillows and bound with a
white cloth. The lower jaw was
slightly fallen. The whole ex?

Death had smoothed away the
myriad of wrinkles thc years had
created. The mouth wears the
faint, ineffable smile I have seen
so often when- it answered the
cheers of. the vast crowd in St,
Peter's or beamed upon the bow?

His Holiness carried thc fath?

From Friday morning four nights

lethargy of death first over?

ports that others -will apply for their old,
positions. The company Is turning down
Inexperienced men now, ?iaving as many
learners as they destro for tho present.
Two young men from Manchester, well
endorsed were told yesterday that they,
could not be offered positions at this time.
As soon as the inexperienced men now
loarnlng the duties of motormen and con?

work, others may bo taken on. Many of
the men now applying are experienced'
men. As soon a3 these men are taken on',
they am directed to report to the va?

assigned to work.
While there wero several accidents yes?

nnd the Injuries sustained slight, No new
