Jail to Sober Trainmen.
The Kansas railroads are preparing
to ask the coming leglslaturo to en
act a law making the drinking of li
quor by trainmen punlshablo by a
heavy fine and a Jail sentence.
All tho railroads have rulings that
their trainmon, engineers, firemen,
conductors, brakemen, flagmen, por
ters and train dispatchers, as well as
switching men, must not drink while
Now tho railroads aro going to ask
the state to help them stop the prac
tice entirely and also enable them to
keep some of the most efficient em
ployes. The roads would suspend a train
man caught drinking while on duty
and then would also prosecute him in
the state court and send him to jail.
Then it Is belloved the trainmen
might reform and actually quit using
liquor while on duty, more to avoid
the Jail sentence than to avoid dis
charge. Chicago Inter Ocean

Exists on Apples From New York
When "Refrigerator la Finally Opened
Passenger li Unable to Stand
Up, and Both Feet Are
Sioux City, la. Almost dead on ac
count of his Bufferings, Andy Gorchltz,
a Hungarian, was removed from ,a
refrigerator car In tho Sioux City
yards. Ho had been In tho car thir
teen days, and had traveled from
Spenccrport, N. Y. Ho Bald ho had
been working at Nowburg, N. Y.
Tho car was filled with apples,
loaded In barrels, During tho long
trip Gorchltz llvdd on apples, con
suming ono barrel of tho fruit
Tho man's feot wroro frightfully
frozen nnd swollen. Tho discolora
tion extended almost to his knees.
Tho restraining bandB of his shoes left
deep marks In the frozen feet. Every
effort being made to restore circula
tion. Gorchltz was removed to St. Vin
cent's hospital, whero he was attended
by Dr. J. P. Dougherty, pollco surgeon.
Ho rovlved under tho treatment given
him. Tho latest report Indicated that
his life will bo saved, although It
probably will bo necessary to ampu
tato tho feot. Ho la fifty-two years
Tho case is an exceedingly strange
ono and Is made more complicated
becauso tho man Is unablo to speak
English. Tho word "sick" comprises
his entiro English vocabulary.
Tho car was filled with apples In
barrels and was consigned to Sioux
City. When employes opened tho car
they found tho sufferer stretched
across two barrels. Ho was too weak
to arise. He mumbled continually tho
word "sick." The Palmer men called
Herman Schmaltz, special agent for
the Chicago and Northwestern line.
Schmaltz removed tho man to tho po
llco station. Doctor Dougherty or
dered him to tho hospital as soon
as ho made an examination.
In a Coma for Days.
Ofllcer Schmaltz found an Interpre
ter, and through this agency managed
to learn the man's name. Ho said be
had quit work at Nowburg and
boarded the car, thinking It would
go only a short distance. Shortly af
ter tho car was sealed and started
on Its long Journey. He was unable
to glvo any detailed account of the
trip. It is thought ho has been In a
state of coma for several dayB. Ho
said ho had a wife and five children
in Pollch, Somplln Province, Hungary.
Joseph T. Stanhope, agent for the
Merchant's Dispatch, interested him
self In tho caso because his company
had charge of the car during its ship
ment. Mr. Stanhope learned that the
car had been opened when the fern
peraturo was tested. The man evi
dently was too weak to make an out
cry. Doctor Dougherty expressed tho
opinion that tho man Is In no Immedi
ate danger if tho feet can bo saved.
The dl3t of apples relieved the hun
ger, although there was not sufficient
nourishment to maintain strength.

the keeper who has charge of tho alli

brought the saurian to tho menagerio
in a box why ho wanted to glvo It
"Mother BayB alligators grow very
fast," declared the twelve-year-old lad.
"Any other reason?" asked Holmes,
with a sly wink.
"I put him In the bed with my kid
brother," said the lad, "and he was
almost scared to death."

BABY FORTUNE CASE TANGLED
Witnesses at Hearing Offer Astonish
ing Contradictions In Testi
mony, Sarf Francisco. Conflicting testi
mony given here before tho district
attorney deepened the mystery In the
Sllngsby baby Institution case, which
hinges on tho question of whether
Mrs. Dorothy Sllngsby, wlfo of Lieu
tenant Charles Sllngsby of the Brit
ish navy, substituted the Illegitimate
child of Lillian Anderson for her own
son, which died at birth.
So varied aro tho statements of
witnesses that It would have been dif
ficult to gather, from the testimony,
whether tho present Sllngsby heir
bears relationship to his putative
mother, or even whether Mrs. Sllngs
by ever gave birth to a son.
Mrs. Amanda Koch, who was living
with Mrs. Sllngsby in the fall of 1910,
swore that no child was born to Mrs.
Sllngsby on Sept. 1, the date of the
announced birth. On the other hand,
Dr. Martin Regensburger, president of
tho state board of health, testified
that ho had attended Mrs. Sllngsby
Just prior to that date, and that an
heir was expected.
Still another witness, Mrs. O. H.
I3aln, declared Mrs. Sllngsby had giv
en birth to a still-born babe In her
place on Aug. 16, two weeks earlier.
Word came to the officials later
that tho Sllngsbys had taken steps to
bo represented In tho present hearing,
and In the arraignment of Dr. W. E.
Fraser, who Is charged with having
falsified the birth certificate of tho
baby alleged to have been substituted.
They have also engaged the serv
ices of a detective bureau, and are
endeavoring to trace Lillian Ander
son, alleged bv the opposition to be
the mother of the child the Sllngsbys
are now claiming as their own.
Local officials frankly admit Inabil
ity to determine whether Lieutenant
Sllngsby and his wife are tho victims
of a well-planned conspiracy, design
ed to deprive their child of his right
ful Inheritance, or are themselves tho
Lieutenant Sllngsby has already
come Into the possession of his own
Inheritance, a large English estate,
but the disposition of property valued
at about a half-million dollars, vested
In their supposed son, depends upon
the success of their attempt to estab
lish his legitimacy.
NERO'S FISH POND IS FOUND
In Water Reservoir He Bred Dellca-
cades for Use on the Imperial
Rome. The most important arch
aeological discovery yet mado was
brought out by Professor Bonl the
other day In his excavations on the
Palatine. Beneath the basilica of the
Flavian palace he found two narrow
stairways leading to the "Piscina," a
water reservoir consisting of five largo
compartmonts. It Is still Intact and Is
covered and well preserved by water
tight cement. It was especially con
structed on different levels, and in this
way tho water was enabled to deposit
Tho reservoir dates from the tlmo
of Nero, when It was used as a salt
water fish pond with the object of the
artificial breeding of exotic fish for
the imperial table. Tho artificial rear
ing and hatching of fish In ancient
Rome Is attested by Pliny, who alludes
to a special flsh called the scams,
which was found between Rhodes and
Crete, but was bred artificially.
Rome deplores tho gluttony which
has secured delicacies by sowing the
seas and giving them now Inmates.
