ILLINOIS MAN CAST HIS
FIRST VOTE IN 1840.
Michael Mark ley Was For Von uren
and Recalls Stirring Events.
There are few men In tho country
like Michael Markley of Mount Car
roll, III., who can boast that his blood
was first stirred in a political discus
sion in the days when Andrew Jackson
was president and who cast his first
vole for Martin Vnn Huron, tho Dem
ocratic nominee against William Hen
ry Harrison In 1810. Mr. Markley re
cently "reminisced" in the presence of
n visitor from Chicago.
Mr. Markley has voted in eighteen
natlonnl elections. After 1840 he enst

Henry Clay and in 18Ti2 for Kranklln
Pierce against Wlntlcld Scott In IS.".!
ho Joined the Itopnblleun party and
voted for Kremont.
"Tho year 1 voted for Van Huron I
had a lot of hot nrgumeuts," said Mr.
Markley. "Thoy had processions for

and shooting of cannon. AVe never
had a rally M-Ithout tiring cannon. The
people were Intensely partisan, and I

"In the early dnys a man could work

trouble with the country is that money
is too cheap. There are too many mil
lionaires. Everybody's got money."

SILENCER FOR BABY CRIES.
Indiana Mother Designs a Wall Ab

Ind., and her baby mulller.
Mrs. Prouty entered the notol Balti

placed her two-year-old baby on a set
tee while she registered. Tho baby
squirmed and kicked and made faces,
but thero was no noise.
"Poor thing!" some ono said. "It Is
deaf and dumb."
The mother smiled nnd said: "No,

assumed the role of lecturer, with Il
lustrations. A thin rubber hood fitted over tho
baby's chin nnd mouth. Of tho samo
color of tho baby's skin, It could not
bo seen nt a dlstanco. Around tho
mouth was a jxieket, lu which was a
filmy cloth resembling mosquito bar,
of silk. Mrs. Prouty changes this pad
ding every day, and tho baby woars It
only when in public. Tho child can
breathe through It, nnd It Is removed
when tho baby wants a drink. The

tho baby's hood, and cry ns much ns It

Mrs. Prouty will not patent her de
vice. She wauts every mother to have
the advantage of it.

Navy Department Guards Against
Knowlodge Reaching Othor Govern
ments Tests Have Boen Going on
For Several Months.
A policy of greater secrecy adopted
recently by the navy department In
relation to what takes place In navy
yards, on board battleships, in experi
ments with guns, powder, explosives
and submarines has been observed so
rigorously that few know thnt tests of
two large gyroscopes of American in
vention have been going on aboard tho
topedo boat destroyer Wordcu for sev
The Worden, commanded by Ensign
W. H. Monroe, has been running In
and out of the New York navy yard
two and three times n week for the
last four months, equipped with tin
gyroscopes, In an effort to discover U
the problem of preventing such crart
from rolling can bo solved.
Belief that this type of gyroscope,
called the active, Is successful and
fear that spies of other navies will try
to steal tho secret have kept every offi
cer and man In the torpedo boat on
the alert day and night.
A bluejneket Is on guard within a
few feet of the gyroscopes constantly.
No ono Is permitted to go near them,
although they are under cover until
tho ship Is at sea.
The gyroscopes are placed lu tho
main dock forward, ono on tho port
side and the other on the starboard.
From the size of tho covering they
seem to be about throe or four feet In
diameter. O. H. Miller, lieutenant
commander; Guard Knox, naval con
structor, and Lieutenant J. A. Monroe
have charge of the tests, and they are
on board the torpedo boat whenever
she goes out beyond Sandy Hook.
None of those officers can be Induced
to say a word about the gyroscopes.
The type Is said to bo tho Invention
of n navy officer, and Is superior to
tho passive type of gyroscopes used
with great success by the Germans.
Tests have been going on for a year,
it Is said, in the laboratories In tho
A torpedo boat destroyer like tho
AVordeu has an angle of stability of
ninety degrees. She has rolled as
much as fifty degrees. In the great
storm last Christmas, in which a fleet
of torpedo boats nnd destroyers were
tossed nbout and damaged badly on
tho way to Culm, several having to
put In to Bermuda, one of the boats is
said to have rolled 110 degrees. She
dipped water with her smokestacks.
Rolling Causes Suffering.
In bad weather life aboard a torpedo
boat almost Is unbearable. The crew
suffers much, and men In the engine
room nro knocked about and hurt.
Walking across the dock ia done with
great risk of life.
Such secrecy now Is being observed
In the navy that orders even have !
Issued that no officer can dis"uss su:
marine tactics. Tho navy departmen:
considers the evolutions of a subui.i
rlno of such vital Importance that in
navy officers, It Is said, save tho.;t
who formerly served In submarines,
now can go aboard that kind of craft
nnd get knoweldgo of the newest de
velopments. The Worden is 218 feet long, 23 feet
10 inches wide, and draws 10 feet 8

SLEEP BY ELECTRICITY.
German Doctor Announces Successful
Electric sleep, to be turned on or off

to sufferers from sleeplessness by Dr.
Nngelschmldt, a German physician,
who describes his invention in tho Ber
liner Kllnlsehe Wochenischrlft.

duced only In rabbits and dogs, but the
experiments on animals have been so
free from evil effects thnt Dr. Nngel

"A Xo. 1" Said to Have Hccn Killed.
"A No. 1," tho famous railroad
tramp who has been in Honcsdale,
is dead, having been ground under
the wheels of a railroad train in
Houston, Texas, September 2C, ac
cording to a dispatch.
The dispatch from Houston to a
Chicago paper follows:
" 'A No. 1,' tho king of hoboes, Is
dead. Slipping from the rods of a
passenger train on the Louisvillo &
Nashville Hallroad, the man who
boasted that ho had traveled more
miles and paid less fare3 than any
traveler of his generation, was
caught by tho trucks of tho heavy
coach and literally ground to death.
'Chicago' White, his companion of
the last year, brought the news to
Houston. 'Chicago' and an old priest
had stood uncovered by tho shallow
grave that held tho fragments of
llesh and bono that could be found."
"A No. 1" was a puzzle, even to
the men with whom ho had roamed
to all parts of the world. He told no
one his name, his birthplace or of his
family. He was merely "A No. 1,"
tho king of tramps. From Maine to
California his namo Is painted or
carved on box cars, watertanks, rail
road sheds, in fact everywhere "A
No. 1" could find space his name in
big letters and two arrows, pointing
in the direction the hobo king was
traveling at the time he "signed up."
Hundreds of these signatures are to
be found along the Erie railroad.
