The crime charged was said to have been
committed some time ago. Thomas was then
a resident of Eau Claire and was identified
with certain insurance companies as agent.
While so employed he is charged with having
appropriated to hjs personal use monies ag
gregating in the vicinity of $3,000, and ab

FOR CASH ADVANCED.
A Correction Regarding: the Anna
R. Mlntzer Case.
To the Editor of the Globe:
In your report (on page 8 of the Globe,
Wednesday morning) of the recent decision
of the Supreme court In the case of the
St. Paul Trust Company, as Administrator,
etc., appellant, vs. Anna R. Mintzer, re
spondent, you say of the St. Paul Trust
Company: "It claims $20,000 for its work
in connection with the estate."
Only about one-tenth of the account of
the administrator against the estate, is for
its services at the rate of $300 per annum,
which compensation has been approved by
the Probate court and by the heirs inter
ested, at successive accountings. The bal
ance of the account is chiefly for cash ad
vanced during the past ten years by the
administrator to pay expenses, taxes, assess
ments and other charges against the real
estate (which Is assessed for taxation at about I
$90,000), which advances were made under
the direction and approval of the Probate
court, and for protection and preservation of
the estate for the beneficiaries under the
will. The estate was, by Mr. Mintzer's
■will, to be held in trust undivided for ten
years after his death, which term expired
about one year ago.
AMERICA'S COMMON ROADS.
Statistics Which Show That Cheap
Highways Are the Most Costly
The total length of the common roads
in this country, good, bad and indif
ferent, Is estimated by Gen. Stone, of
the road bureau of the department of
„agriculture, at something over 1,300,000
miles, according to the Manufacturer.
The majority of these roads have been
opened by common laborers, hired by
local supervisors, and no engineering
principles have been observed in their
construction. As a result, it costs more
to keep them in repair than if they
were as many finely macadamized
Keeping these poor roads in^repair
and opening new thoroughfares cost
Massachusetts in 1893, outside of cities,
$1,136,944, or $66.30 a mile; in New York,
$2,500,000, or $30 a mile, and in New Jer
sey, $778,407.82, or $43.25 a mile. The
total expenditure for roads in that
year amounted to atjbut $20,000,000. As
a greater part of the enormous sum
was spent in repairing poorly con
structed roads that would need exact
ly the same attention next year, it is
not an exaggeration to say that most
of the money was wasted.
Fine roads can be constructed all the
way from $400 to $500 a mile, according
to the nature of the country through
which they pass, the cost of crushed
stone and other engineering problems.
The cost of keeping these roads in re
pair is infinitely smaller than that re
quired to repair the ordinary dirt
roads each winter and spring, when
great gullies and ruts are washed into
them by the rains and floods. The
secret of the success of the fine roads
in France is attributed to the prompt
and systematic repairs made at all
seasons of the year.

Wai the Position This Modest News
paper Man Was Placed In.
One day last week as a Star reporter
came out of Fourteenth street into
Pennsylvania avenue he met coming
across the avenue from the cable cars,
from which he had Just alighted, the
most diffident newspaper man on the
row. He had a nervous, uncertain,
glad-to-escape look, and he met the
reporter in much the same spirit a
shipwrecked sailor would meet a life
"Hello!" exclaimed the reporter.
"What's the matter?"
"Whew," and the diffident man
puffed out a long breath of relief. "I
hope to goodness I'll never have an
other such an experience."
"What was it? An accident?"
"Partially," smiled the escaped. "At
least I think it was. It was this way,'
and he turned to give a last look at
the car as it whirled out of sight
around the corner of Fifteenth street.
"I was coming up from the capitol
and the car was pretty well loaded
when three ladies got in at Peace
Monument. I thought there was room
next to me for them, and shoved over
to accommodate them, but only two
could get in. Then I offered my place
to the third one, but she declined, and
insisted on declining so vigorously
that I remained in my seat. However,
she thanked me, and said she would
sit on the lap of one of her compan
ions, and down she sat.
"Now, as* I have said, there wasn't
any room to spare in that car, and
when she sat down she sat on one
half of my lap, and I didn't dare to
move a peg. I thought she would no
tice it, but she was busy talking, and
didn't, and I stood the pressure the
best I knew how. I twisted around
three or four times, but it didn't seem
to do any good, and only made me
more uncomfortable, and I finally sub
mitted quietly, hoping the party would
leave the car before I had to. That
hope, however, was dashed as we drew
nearer to Fourteenth street, and then
I began to wonder how I was going to
get out of it. I didn't have time to
stay in the car until my fair burden
left; neither did I want to pay car
fare back from Georgetown or some
other suburban point. As the car pass
ed the street I made a herculean ef
" 'Excuse me, madam,' said I, 'but
I want to leave the car here.'
"'Well?' and the surprised woman
looked at me questioningly. 'I have no

you are sitting on my lap, and I can't
" 'What!' she exclaimed, bouncing up
likea rubber ball, 'all that distance?'
' 'Yes, madam,' I responded, very
much embarrassed, and feeling like a
small boy caught in a Jam jar.
"Then the lady next to me laughed
" 'Well,' she said, 'I thought you
were very light'
"I suppose they are talking about
it yet," he concluded, with another
sigh of relief, "but, thank heaven, I'm
out of it," and the Star reporter went
and bought a half dollar's worth of
tickets, and asked for a half day off
to use them up in.
THE WHITE GRAPE MARKET.
A Large Importation Tills Year,
. 105,000 Barrels iv All, and All
Sold at Ant-lion.
This has been a capital white grape
season. The crop is a large one, and
as practically all of the white grapes
imported get here by the last of De
cember, it is now possible to give the
figures pretty exactly, says the New
In 1894, 115,000 barrels of Almeria
grapes came into New York. This year
165,000 barrels arrived here. Almeria
.is the trade name given to this deli
cious fruit, and it means just the same
as Malaga, both referring to the fine
white grape of commerce that comes
to this country packed in small kegs
and made secure from bruising by lay
ers and siftings of sawdust or cork
in between. Each keg holds, as a rule,
forty-five pounds of grapes. This
means that very close to 8,000,000
pounds of white grapes are sold in
this port every year.
They are grown high up in the hilly
regions of Spain, in what is known as
the "lead-mine country." Practically
all of the firm white grapes that are
so much appreciated for the sick room
and as table delicacies grow in a sin
gle district. The grapes are not sold
at "private sale," but In the auction
room. One firm of auctioneers han
dles the bulk of this business. The
buyers gather in the grape salesroom,
and there are two small elevators or
platforms that rise up from the floor
below. On each of these a keg or bar
rel full of grapes poured out, repre
senting a lot of an especial mark.
While one of the movable platforms Is
up in the little pit and bidding is go
ing on upon the fruit displayed there,
workmen on the floor below are busy
clearing off the other platform and
dumping a new lot of grapes upon it.
Then, on a signal from the auctioneer,
the platform that is downstairs grad
ually comes up and the other descends.
By this arrangement the buyers, and
especially those on the lower tier who
can reach forward and feel the grapes,
have an opportunity to know what
they are bidding on. California white
grapes have this last year come very
largely into the market, and are now
an important factor.
EAT TOO MUCH.
Twelve Ounce* of Food Is a Meal for
A Brain Worker.
The present mode of eating now prac
ticed by the unscientific public at
divers table d'hotes, beaneries and
boarding house boards three times a
day, 365 days in the year, is evidently
all wrong, says the Food Reform Mag
azine. The unscientific public eats too
much. Dr. Nicholas declares that the
average quantity of water-free aliment
required, say of business and literary
men, is twelve ounces, and that men
of great muscular activity are well
fed on sixteen to twenty ounces. Dr.
Nichols' advice is to find the minimum
quantity which enables a man to do
his dally work without loss of weight,
by experiment, and then habitually
keep to it.
In the midst of the dietary counsels
of the vegetarians on the one side, and
the raw-beef and hot-water theorists
on the other, it is interesting to con
template the possibilities of the eating
of the future. It is probable that eat
ing in the twentieth century will be
reduced to the minimum, and a cen
tury or so thereafter be abolished alto
gether, if the present trend of scien
tific dietetic discovery continues. The
good old feasts of Thanksgiving and
Christmas are decried as barbarous in
dulgence of the animal appetite, and it
is only necessary to attend a high
tea of a social new woman or a de
butante luncheon of a cooking school
graduate to find evidence of the ethere
alization of latter-day eating. Up to
date no table d'hote has advertised its
dinners by the metric syst4pi, and no
restaurant has served meals by the
solid ounce. But Americans are a
nation of dyspeptics, and the end is

Perhaps the most miserable man in
New York Is Casoli Paracrotti, an Ital
ian pus>h-cart peddler of bananas. His
course through life has been a train of
misfortune to all those with whom he
came in contact. He is today but thir
ty-eight years of age, yet he looks like
an old man. There is a strange anal
ogy in his life to that of the fabled
Claudlo, who, under the curse of the
gods, was doomed to cause the death
of any one to whom he was kind, and
was unable to escape the terrible fate
that attended him because his immor
tality was decreed by the angered
It is a strange curse that hangs over
Paracrotti. He lives the lonely life
of his class, dreading the advent of the
next tragedy in the chain which he be
lieves must go on until his own death
He was born in a small town at the
extreme southern end of Italy. At six
teen he was employed by a foreign no
bleman as a sort of gamekeeper on a
splendid estate overlooking the Medit
erranean. The section was overrun
with poachers, a desperate class.
Paracrotti was an : inventive genius,
and, failing to make much headway
against the encroachments of the
poachers, he invented a sort of infernal
machine for their undoing. It was a
trap to be set upon the ground, and
the young inventor claimed that it
would do no harm more than to maim
any one who tampered with It. The
machine consisted of a wire trap to
be baited with live birds. An explosive
bomb was so arranged that when this
cage was raised the bomb was explod
ed. One day he was explaining the
workings of his device to a party of
interested persons in a barn on the
estate, when it was accidentally ex
ploded, and three men, one of whom
was his employer's eldest son and heir,
were killed. Paracrotti suffered the
loss of two fingers.
In fear he fled from the estate, and,
traveling into the interior, sought shel
ter with his brother and brother-in
law near Terra del Mauro, where they
ran a stage line.
One day Paracrotti became angry at
a vicious horse and threw a stone at
it. • The missile flew wide, but struck
his brother on the head and killed him.
Paracrotti was arrested, but was ac
quitted, as the accidental nature of the
homicide was apparent.
He now returned to the employ of
his brother-in-law. In the barn there
were two bottles, one containing a
horse liniment of a poisonous charac
ter, the other brandy. One day Para-
crotti, needing the bottle containing
the liniment, which was the larger of
the two, drank the brandy and poured
the liniment into the smaller bottle,
which he returned to its usual shelf.
Three weeks later the brother-in-law
picked up the bottle of supposed bran
dy, took a drink and died that night in
great agony. Paracrotti was arrested
on suspicion of having murdered his
relative, but was discharged on trial.
There was now a prejudice against
Paracrotti in the vicinity, and he went
Paracrotti now went to work in a
tunnel. The work was rendered dim
cult by subterranean water courses.
During the day temporary gates were
used to dam up the water. At night
the gates were opened, the flood re
leased and the water would run off
during the might. The gates were
worked by hand , levers, and to this
work Paracrotti was detailed.
One evening, supposing that the men
were all out of the tunnel, poor Par
acrotti gave the signal to open the
gates. Twenty-one belated laborers
were caught in the flood, and every one
was drowned. Fearing the vengeance
of his fellow laborers, Paracrotti fled
that night, haunted', now with the
memory of twenty-six human souls
gone to their last account at his hands.
He found his way to Puzznoli, on
the seacoast, where he secured em
ployment on a freight boat. On.the
third voyage along the coast he was
stricken with fever. He was at once
isolated from the crew. In those days
water was denied a fever patient, ex
cept in small doses. The- stricken man,
tossing with parched throat, saw that
his guard had fallen asleep, so he crept
from his hammock, made his way to
the water tank, plunged his burning
head into its cooling depth and drank
his fill. The fever germs once in the
drinking water, the disease spread
among the crew, and six of them died.
This brought the grewsome record of
deaths up to thirty-two.
The survivors were taken to a shore
hospital. One day, while the convales
cents were sitting in the hospital park,
one of the crew accused Paracrotti of
having Infected the ship and attempted
to assault him. He was too weak to
defend himself, but a messmate took
up the quarrel, and in the desperate
fight with knives which followed Para
crotti's defender was slain.
It was then that Paracrotti deter
mined to leave Italy. He arrived in
New York last March. On his first
day on the streets as^a peddler he ran
into an elderly man-, pushing him under
a cable car. The rrian Sustained injuries

The prophet was taking a stroll in
the country, when he saw a serpent,
stiff with cold, lying on the ground,
says the Conte Arabe. He compas
sionately took it up -and warmed it
in his bosom. When the serpent had
recovered it said:
"Divine prophet, listen. I am now
going to bite thee."
"Why, pray?" inquired Mohammed.
"Because thy race persecutes mine
and tries to stamp It out."
"But does not thy race, too, make
perpetual war against mine?" wa3 the
prophet's rejoinder. "How canst thou,
besides, be so ungrateful, and so Soon
forget that I saved thy life?"
"There is ilo such thing as gratitude
upon this earth," replied the serpent;
"and if I, were to spare thee, either
those or another' of thy race would
kill me. By Allah, I shall bite thee."
"If thou hast sworn by Allah, I will
not cause thee to break thy vow," said
the prophet, holding out his hand to
the serpent's mouth. The serpent bit
him, but he sucked the wound with his
lips and spat the venom on the ground.
And on that very spot there sprang
up a plant which combines within
itself the venom of the serpent and
