HOW LONDON WAS HOAXED.
(From the Pall Mall Gazette.)
In 18G0 one of the most successful
and perhaps tho least harmful of all
fools' hoaxes was perpetrated. A com
plimentary card was sent out Inviting
the public to an entertainment at the
Tower of London:
ADMIT tho BEARER
. To VIEW the WASHING of the .
.On the 1st of APRIL at 12 precisely.
.Admitted only at the WinTE GATE.
So ran the cards. London was in
uproar, and cabmen made small for
tunes. "The better the day the bet
ter the deed." Doubtless it was be
cause the trick was played on a Sun
day that it proved the most success
ful of any on a large scale. Many
went away convinced of the renlity
of the spectacle; but they had missed
it through failing to And the White
GREAT STUNT BY GERONIMO.
In a single day Geronimo, when In
his prime, ran forty miles on foot,
rode 500 miles on ono stretch, as fast
a3 he could change horses, and so
completely wore out the column which
finally captured him that three sets of
officers were needed to finish the
chase, and not more than one-third of
the troopers who started were In at
Wrinkled and crafty and crusl is his
swarthy face to-day, but the fire of
his Infernal energy has died and he

their first meeting:
"He - rode Into our camp and dls
mounted, a prisoner. He wa3 one of
the brightest, most resolute, deter

sharpest, clearest lark eye. Every
movement showed power and energy."
FISK VS. NATIONAL BAPTIST.
On Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock
the National Baptist baseball team
will open the season of 1907 under
glowing conditions. , They will try
conclusions with the strong Fisk team
cn Bennett Field. The team has been
strengthened considerably since last
season and is preparing for a hard
campaign. The National Baptists
furnished more sport for the fans
than any club in Nashville last year,
and they have planned to even eclipse
their 1906 record this season. While
fhe team has not had very much
Vhnnce for practice this spriDg, they
are determined to make the Fisk boys
know that they have been in a
game when the final inning will have
been played Saturday. The following
will compose the team that will go
against Fisk: Pointer, Boyd, Bow
nan, Collins, Kelly, WTatkins, Ewing,
Fisher and Holmes.
WHITE HOUSE CROW
Has Been Foretelling the Weather
Since Gen. Grant Was President.
Many folks in this city, as well as
elsewhere, have been talking about
the old crow which is known to have
established his headquarters long
ago in the White House grounds, says
the Washington Post, and whose skill
as an augur has been advanced re
cently by a warning he gave that
Easter Sunday would certainly be a
moist and unpleasant day.
To the east of the mansion on the
north front, in a little grove of elms,
the old bird has his habitation. Gen
erally he ocoupies a tree very
near the north portico. There is a
large hollow in the trunk of this tree,
and in the topmost branches his sa
ble plumage is nearly always to be
seen. Some of the policemen on duty
about the grounds keep an eye on the
old fellow at times, but the majority
of them ignore him. "I have as much
as I can do," said one of the blue
coat? when the subject of the crow's
methods was mentioned to him, "to
keep my attention rivited upon the
crowds of people that swarm here
every day, without giving any thought
to the crow."
But there are others about the
White House who have paid consider
able attention to him. One old re
tainer; -who went Into - servlco when
Gen. Grant became President, says
this same crow was stationed near the
house when he first took up a hum
ble position there. "And we all
know," said this old fellow, "that as
a weather prophet he can give cards
and spades to the bureau officers and
beat them." .
The man who could probably give
more information, if he would, about
the White House crow is that old vet
eran of the clerical force, Col. Crook,
who has been stationed in one capaci
ty or an other about the Executive
quarters ever since the days of Pres
ident Lincoln. He has observe i the
bird's flights and heard his warning
croaks for many years, and can testify
to his presence in the grounds adja
cent to the house for all this time.
There is no one of the officials, high or
low, who will venture conjecture con
cerning this crow's age. Their guesses
range everywhere from twenty-seven
years to the time when the memory of
man runneth not to the contrary, hut
there Is a consensus that no matter
how old he is, he is a wise bird.
That he possesses some influence is
evident from the fact that his fore
cast of the weather for Easter did
prevent the ladies and some of the
members of the minor officials about
the White House from venturing out
antd risking a detriment to their
beautiful spring finery. "How long
this old fellow will remain with us
no one can tell," said one of the
clerks. "He knows he has a good
place where no hunter can take a pot
shot at him, and no wanton little boy
can hurl a rock at him, so he is wise
enough to stand pat."
A well-informed gentleman who
lives in a fine farming region in West
Virginia, but who is temporarily so
journing in Washington, talking about
the White House crow, said: As a
weather predicter the crow is in good
rank. We country folks notice it and
often take advantage of the warning.
Then the crow is apt to give notice
if there is a gale brewing by flying
pretty close to the ground. If the
sky is clear and likely to continue so
he will soar as high as he can, and
croak his delight at living by lively
