A parly of ICO teachers or the public,

A XOTOKIOUS THIEF AHKKSTED.
"Delaware Franklin .Tallies" in the
Custody of Fitehbuig Toliee.
A curious instance of a man's evil deeds
finding him out has been brought to light
through a letter received by Inspector Hol
linbetger yesterday from Chier of Police
Tarbox, of Fitchburg, Mass. It asked
for information concerning Delaware
Franklin James, who has been arrested in
James is wanted here and in many other
cities throughout the country. He is
known to the police as a most expert pick
pocket, and is one or the cleverest thieves
who ever operated in the United States
It seems now, however, that he has at
last been run to earth and will probably
be given a sentence of such length that
he will spend the remainder of his days in
piison. In Massachusetts there is a law
Known as the "Habitual criminal act,"
under which npcnnltyof twenty-rive years'
itupiisonment can be imposed, and James
comes within its provisions
James is forty-five years old, well edu
cated, of good appearance, line address
and a fluent talker. He has a family in
California, and lias been arrested many
limes in that State. Tie has had many
aliases, among them "Gopher Jim," Frank
Queen, James Adams, Frank St. Clair and
Charles Anderson. It is under this last
name that he is familiar to the local of
ficers. Their experience with him dates
back to last summer, during the Christian
Endeavor convention held here. Be was
arrested July 3 by Detective Daitigan,
who caught him with his hand in a
woman's pocket In the Baltimore and Ohio
depot. On the way to the police station
he offered the detective $."0 to allow liiui
to escape. He was locked up, and event
ually given a preliminary hearing in the
police court He retained a lawyer and
was relented on Iwuds. That was the last
seen or him here.
His criminal career began when he was
arrested in San Qtientin, Cal., over fifteen
years ago. He was charged with giand
larceny. Be next appeared in Chicago, and
was sent to Jolletfor burglary. He seived
his time and was later anestcdln Colum-
bus, and spent several years in the peniten
tiary there for a similar offense. These
two are the only occasions on which it is
-certain that he did not escape. He is
wanted in Louisville, Ky- New Orleans,
Cincinnati, and Springfield, 111., and along
the Mississippi River from Caiio to Baton
Rouge James is known and fcaicd as a
A detective said last night that there is
probably no other pickpocket who enoys
such a wide reputation among the police
from New STork to the Pacific coast He
was recognized as a clever man, who used
his brains, and whenever he was aircsted
every effort was put foith to convict him.
James is now in the Fitchburg Jail, ac
cused of stealing $300 from George C.
Jone-,of that city. He will undoubtedly be
convicted and given the full sentence of

But Daniel Spencer's Experience In
That Line IVas Otherwise.
Daniel Spencer attempted to act the
peacemaker Tuesday and his errorts re
sulted as usual. There was trouble be
tween Minnie "Wheeler and Bell Johnson,
and Spencer stepped between them. AH
the parties to the arralr are colored.
Spencer chose an unfortunate moment
to interrerc. There was a- pan of stew on
the btove just in the plnce where Minnie
could reach it easily. She intended to
throw the pan at Bell, but her aim was
bad and Spencer received somebody's din

Yesterday in the police court he looked

CATARRH OF THE STOMACH.
A Pleasant. Simple, Hut Safe
Effectual Cure for It.
Catarrh of the stomach has long been
considered the next thing to iucurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or bloating
sensation after eating, accompauied some
times with sour or watery risings, a for
mation of gases, causing pressure on the
heart and lungs and difficult breathing;
headaohes, fickle appetite, nervousness and
a general played out, languid feeling.
There is often a foul taste in the mouth,
coated tongue, and if the interior or the
stomach could be seen it would show a
slimy, inflamed condition.
The cure for this common and obstinate
trouble is found In a treatment which
causes the food to be readily, thoroughly
digested bemre it has time to ferment and
irritate the delicate mucous surfuces of
tho stomach. To secure a prompt and
healthy digestion is the one necessary
thing to do, and when normal digestion Is
secured the catarrhal condition will have
According to Dr. Ilarlanson tho safest
and best treatment is to use after each
meal a tablet, composed of Diastase, Asep
tic Pepsin, a little Xux, Golden Seal and
fruit acids. These tablets can now be
found at all drug stores under the name
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and not be
ing a patent medicine can be used with
perfect safety and assurance that healthy
appetite and thorough digestion will follow
their regular use after meals.
Mr. N. J. Boohcr, of 2710 Dearborn St.,
Chicago, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a local
condition resulting from a neglected cold
in the head, whereby the lining mem
brane or the nose becomes inflamed and
the poisonous discharge therefrom passing
backward into the throat reaches the
stomach, thus producing catarrh of tho

but was unsuccessful. In July, 1893, he
decided to go to Paris, promising to return

thereafter. The wife's parents declined
to advance money to pay her expenses hi
