A PROFESSIONAL LEG BREAKER.
Slaking ullutlneis of railing on llml Side
wall.n mid Getting liaiuautt.
Tho autl-.orities of Anaconda, Mon.,
havo tent lottcrs of inquiry hero In re
gard to ono C. F. Burkhart, who, it ap
pears, had sued that city for $.5,000 dam
ages for a broken leg and other injunci
sustained, it is claimed, by 11 full upon
tho sidowalk there some time ego. If
Burkhart is not nu assumed namo the
man is not known hero. Tliero aie tav
cral features about tho case, however,
that iccall tho career in this section of
ono of the shrewdest confidence men
who over worked a gaino In Illinois.
The man's namo was Landers. He
was an expert telegraph oixu-ator nnd
one of tho smoothest of talkers. Land
ers mado it a regular business for sev
eral years of traveling through tho state,
falling down on .bad sidewalks in coun
try towns, and breaking his leg. It was
always tho same leg that was broken.
A heavy damage suit followed each
accident, and the man fairly coined
money at his peculiar business. His
success in towns nnd small cities fired
his ambition for greater things. Ac
cordingly, fifteen years or moro ago, ho
went to St. Louis, found a bad placo In
the pavement on Oliver street, and
promptly till down nnd broke his leg
lie afterward compromised tho mat
ter with tho city for $2,000 and actually
secured every dollar of it. After that
Landers camo hero and pencd up ono
of tho largest rotall grocery stores in tho
state of Illinois. Tho place was run
upon metropolitan principles, nnd mado
a fino show ing for a country store. Tho
trndo of the town, howover, did not
justify tho outlay, and tho country
grocer eocn went to the well. After
tho failure of tho business ho left it to
stralghton out itself, and returned to tho
moro profitable business of leg breaking.
As a pretender Landers had uo su
perior, and few if any equals. Some of
the best physicians wero taken in by tho
fellow. He submitted to painful opera
tions with wondexful fortitude. A num
ber of physicians, whoso honesty has
never for n moment been questioned,
havo gono upon the witness stand in
court nnd taken a solemn oath that tho
man's leg had been broken and reset by
them, when iu reality tho fellow had
never been hurt nt all.
Tho man's ability as n pretender in
that lino was equaled only by his ability
to tell with wonderful effect a talo of
woo. His pitiful story was told in such
n manner that it carried conviction with
it. It seldom or uet er failed to bring
about tho desired verdict. Landers
finally drifted to, Chicago, whero he was
ranght in somo swindle and was sent to
tho Joliet penitentiary for n term of
years. Tho term expired several years
ago and tho leg breaker left for the
great nnd growing west. Ashley (III.)
A roolhardjr Girl.
A quite thrilling incident occurred on
tho straight stictchof tho lino of tho
New York and Now Jersey railroad be
tween Woodridgo and Corlstadt Sunday
afternoon As u passenger train was
proceeding ut full speed, a Bixtcen.year
old girl left her half dozen companions
iu tho roadway that runs near tho track
and stepped quickly In front of tho lo
comotive, which was not moro than S00
Sho was laughiug defiantly, facing tho
locomotive, standing squarely between
the rails, and tho engineer know that
she was bent upon mischief and not
upon suicide. Ho mndo tho passengers
jump on their soats with the blood curd
ling whistle that be sent out of bis en
gine, but tho girl between tho rails
snapped her fingers and danced deri
sively, Tho engineer had to stop tho train or
run over her. Of the two evils ho chose
tho one ho supposed to be tho Ie.v-er.
His fireman did not agree with him, but
there was 110 time to arguo tho point.
When tho locomotive was brought to a
standstill Us pilot was hardly Ave feet
from tho girl's skirts. "I told them
you'd havo to stop," bho eald. "I knew
you daren't run over me." Then 6ho
laughed and ran after her companions.

A Mathematical Curffftltjr.
Jacques Inaudi, n young Frenchman
twenty-four years old, is astonishing Hio
peoplo of Paris with hb marvelous fcits
of mental calculation, which surpass
anything that has cer been known be
fore of a similar character. Ho in
forms multiplications nnd divisions of
numbers of twenty-four figures, nnd ex
tracts tho tqtiare anil cube roots of num
bers with almost incredible rapidity,
and an hour afterward ho will repeat
every number written ujwh tbo black
board upon which bo lias boon operat
ing. His memory In prodigious, bnt his
mnemonic powew ,v. cxclnsi vely turned
toward uumcrical c,, "r.tions and alge
braic problems. The joung calculator
bcarccly knows how to read or wnto
and docs not interest himself in tiny
other pursuit thau calculating, vyhicb
amuses him constantly. '
His method of multiplying is simfilo
nnd natural, although different from the
common one. Instead of beginntng'at
tho right by units ho mnltiplies in
round numbers of a singlo llguro each
and adds tho products. In this way bo
will multiply two sums of. threo figures
eacli in six seconds.
Wb.Ho Inaudl's power, like that of a
musician who plays "by car" without
knowing a note, bar a fascination, it
cannot bo reconciled with science, for
whoso methods and formulas ho has a
'high disdain. -.
If Inaudi, hoyvover, could bo persuad
ed to explain his mode- of procedure
fully and allow it to bo published, it
would certainly mako a pamphlet well

Tho Vrloclpedo Iu the French Army.
What was at first regarded as a sim
plo amateur venture in tho way of ex
periment tho French velocipede for
servico on land nnd water as well is
now treated by tho Maiscillcs papers as
a practical and nvailabio mechanism.
Instead of skeleton wheels tho wheels
aro mado hollow, so that when tho
machino enter? tho water they support
tho devico with its rider; they nro also
grooved on thr-ir circumference with
rubber tire for laud use. At tho sides
of tho wheels aro small coppor paddles,
and when the machino is run from tho
land into the water these servo to pro
pel it, bo that, while tho machine can
mako very good speed on land, it is ablo
to mako about three miles an hour iu
water with the raine exertion that is
needed for its propulsion on a good road,
It is stated that it does not easily tip
over when in tho water, and that when
somo special features havo been still
further perfected its efficiency and use
fulness will bo largely enhanced. Tho
points mentioned in which improve
ments aro desirable aro tho addition of
airtight compartments, enlargement of
tho paddles and a reduction of tho
weight of tho eutiro machlue. New
