Tbore ia a new hangman at Fort Smith.
ThU Is a cent item of moro than or
dinary signifJcaDcc. Throughout Arkan
sas and Indlnn Territory Fort Smith is
famed aa "tbo Gallows City," and the
hangman Is an important public function
ary. It Is an extremely peaceful day when
the Fort Smith jail U not crowded with
marderers and outlaws. There are ten
condemned men there now awaiting death
with the cheerful bravado so much affected
by the border ruffian, and during the ad
ministration of George Malcdnn, tbo retir
ing executioner, he hanged 88 men.
For SO years Alalcdon has officiated on
the gallows at Fort Smith, and be has
fairly earned tho title of tbo "American
Jack Ketch." Emm bisgrewsonm service
ho has saved enough to buy a fiuo farm in
Kansns, and tkjorc ho will pass bis declin
ing days in peace and quietness. - He bad
hoped to hang his ono hundredth man be
fore retiring, but subjects have been com
ing in rather slowly In recent years, and
Maledon became discourngod. Then, too,
there Is not so much money In hanging
men nowadays as there Is In farming.
Maledon Fays ho believes his record of 83
hanged is safo anyway from being broken
by any other man, so he will have the ccr
solation in his retirement of knowing that
ho is champion of the world In his line.
Ho loves to talk about his work and took
as much prldo in it as a carpenter would
in a neat job he had dono. Ho followed a
regular system and seldom had a mishap.
A hanging by Maledon was worth going
miles to seo. It was a thing of sciuutifia
beauty. From tho moment tho subject be
gan to pruparo for tho march to the scaf
fold tho llttlo Dutch hangman was at his
heels. He had been up licforo daylight,
greasing his ropes, oiling tho hlngos of tbo
gallows trap and adjusting and readjust
ing his noose. Ho followed the subject to
tho gallows, and when tho foot of tho steps
loading up to it was reached tho little
hangman would trot around and trip
jauntily np tho stairway ahead of all the
rest. From that moment Maledon' face
was a study for a physiognomist. He
heeded not tho spectators or any one on the
scaffold except the subject, and he moved
around hitij with .an air of ownership.
Bomeumos, it mo suDjoct was slow and
backward, Maledon would encourage him
with' a few well chosen words of Impatient
hurry, as: .
"Oh, comoon now; it's nothing at all.
You won't fuel it, and I'll have it all over
In a Jlfly."
Maledon wonld stand tho victim on the
trap, nnd then generally would take a
chew of tobacco and stand with tho noose
ready tn his hands while tho clergyman
prayed. After that it was not a minutetill
(jixirgo'had tho nooso fairly adjusted, the
black cap over tho head and tho trap
sprung. As the body hung limp and
swayed gently back and forth tho little
hangman would Walk around the square
hole of tho trap with his hands on his
hips, looking down at tho swinging body
and surveying it critically from every
point of view, while Lo chewed tobacco
anxiously and vigorously and spat down
through the hole post the body. When
Alaledon had from two to ten to bang at
ono time, he attended to It all alone, ad
justing tho nooses with his own hands.
Maledon sained his tinilioiency as a
hangman by exporiunoa. Ha was not so
Bucoeanfnl with his first two or three jobs
as he was with later subjects.
Maledon s nooso has fallen to Goorire
Lawson, who tried his 'prentice hand on
the notorious Cherokee Bill the other day.
lie made a good job of It, for Dill's neck
was broken without an abrasion of tha
skin, ror some time Lawson hod been
employed as a guard In tho jail. As nn
executioner he works slower than Maledon
and barks the easy movement on the gal
lows that the old hangman had. lie is a
man aliout 45 years of age, S feet 0 Inches
In boight and will weigh ISO pounds. Ho
Is marriud and lives in a little cottage in-
sluo tne old fort almost nndcr the caves of
the joiL His son Will, who has taken his
rlace ns a jail guard, tied the knot for
Cherokee BUI and assisted In the prelimi
naries. Lawson Is not likely to become as fa
mous a hangman as bis predecessor, but
he has many notorious cases on hand.
There nro now ten prisoners in the jidl
whose only bono to escape the callows Is
pardon by the president. Among tbem
are tbo members of the brutal Buck gang.
ino gaiiows on wnicn so many men
have met their death is a massive affair.
It stands just south of the United States
jail and about 100 yards away. There is
a well worn path runuing from the jail to
the gallows, along'whinh the men are led
to execution. The drop on this monstrous
gallows Is 20 feet long, giving ample room
fur hanging ten men at cue time. , Seven
men have been banged at once by Malndon,
feat which broke all previous records
and has never been equaled since. Six
men were hanged at another time, and
there have been several quadruple anil
triplo hanging. Surrounding tbo gal
lows and at a distance of about 50 fuet
from it Is a board fence 25 feet high,
which completely hides the gallows from
public view. Nearly all the men who
have been hanged here were dasperadoas
from the Indian Territory
WOES OF A RESTAURANT KEEPER.
Bis Napkin aaal Even HI Casters Caiilcea
Off by Cost mere.
It was dnring the second half of the
rash for dinner tn a restaurant near
Washington market, where several thou
sands persons are fed daily, when a great
clamor arose for napkins, and waiters
rush id about gathering 'np what few
conld be found on tha tables and distrib
uting these, and others were dispatch
ed to the laundry far more. Henry, the
haad waiter, went around meantime
trying to pacify the people, who were
angry and declaring that it was a shame
that the honsa couldn't give a man a.
napkin to wipe his month with. Some
:nstomers fell back upon the time hon
ored custom of the neighborhood and
ased the corners of the tablecloth! in
lien of the missing napkins.
"It's a curious and on annoying mat
ter how we ran out of napkins every
little while." said Henry. "Ton might
suppose that because they are laundered
so frequently they disappear in the reg
ular way by wearing ont, but that is
not trna Yon will seldom see napkins
in a restaurant which show the effect of
wear. They go because they are stolen.
This is true not only of ench popular
restaurants as this, bnt also of every res
taurant in this city. Who takes them I
do not know. All we know is that they
disappear regularly, and our supposi
tion is that some are carried off by peo
ple who deliberately intend to steal
them and others by persons who put
tbem into their pockets by mistake. I
know one such person as this. It was a
woman of nndonbted honesty, bnt it
was a joke among the members of her
own family that she never dined at a
hotel or restaurant without carrying off
a nankin which she had unconsciously
stuffed into her pocket We got 18 dozen
big dinner napkins a few weeks ago.
Within three weeks they had all disap
peared but five dozen, and now there
isn't one in the house. -
"'Tableware goes in the same way
sometimes, a A little while ago we got
eight dozen of these salt and pepper cast
ers. " Here Henry pointed to some neat
little cnt glass casters with silver plated
tops. "We pnt them on the tables dnr
ing the time the wagon boys were com
ing in here for breakfast last fall, just
before they wonld start out to sell their
day's bnyings on the streets. ' "Holly
gee !' they would say. 'That's a pretty
nice thing. I guess I'll swipe it just for
lnck see?' And when they left every
day we would miss a few casters. Five
dozen of them were lost within a few
weeks." New York Sunt
It Was la His BIO.
That reminds me of a story they tell
about Budyard Kipling indeed, I
won't be euro that it isn't he who tells
it He staid at a hotel once upon a time,
in Montreal, I think it was, and when
he came to go away he asked for tho
landlord. The landlord appeared.
"I wanted to see you," said Mr. Kip
ling, "because yon are a wonderful man.
I have never known your equal. I have
sojourned in hotels all around the world.
I have never seen one like this. "
The landlord swelled with pride. Ho
intimated that the thing was really
nothing when yon knew how to do it
Ho was in a seventh heaven of delight
Mr. Kipling waited till he ncared earth
again. Then he resumed :
"I want to tell yon that cf all the ho
tels under the shining sun I have never
seen one that for unmitigated, all round.
unendurable discomfort could not even
be named in the same day with yours. "
And when Mr. Kipling's bill was
made ont, one item in it read, "To im
pudence, f3." But what's $3, when one
has spoken one's mind? Washington
Fond of Bathing.
In the mountains of Japan, wherever
hot springs occurred, tho natives re
sorted to them, either on account of
their supposed curative properties, or
6imply to kill time. This tasto for bath
ing seems almost to amount to a vice,
and in one place known to the lecturer a
man wonld stay in the water for prac
tically a mouth at a time, taking the
precaution to place a heavy stone on his
"lees to keep him from floating cr
turning over in. his sleep. The curotaker

HIDING HER DIAMONDS.
Frees tho Woaai
Hera la Her OlcTSbo
A group of Washington women had
been telling each other where they hid
their treasures -from possible thieves.
One used her pillowcase, a second had
a pocket on her stocking, another the
lining of her picture hat, when a third
said she always tucked things in her old
"Then yoa want to take warning from
the experience of a friend of mine,"
said Mrs. Tarsney of Missouri. "She
had beautiful diamond rings, ornaments,
earrings and other articles, and when an
epidemic of burglaries came along she
took to hiding, her diamonds in her old
est shoes. - One night she was awakened
by burglars down stairs. She thought if
they heard some one moving about they
would take fright and run away with
out attempting to come np where she
was. So she went to the head of the
stairs, but the burglars kept on and
didn't mind her in the least. She hur
ried back into her room, caught np the
Bret articles that came handy and sent
tbem over the balusters. After they had
left her hand she was struck with horror
to discover her old shoes bumping down
the stairs, attended by a shower of her.
diamonds. Luckily the shoes did the
work. The burglars didn't stop to inves
tigate, and the womanj had strength
enough to gather np her jewels, all of
which she f onnd except one earring. The
next day the maids had to sweep the
entire floor to discover that. But she
doesn't nee ber old shoes as diamond
safes since. " Philadelphia Press.
The Lion's Roar.
Dr. Livingstone noted the odd resem
blance of the lion's roar to that of the
ostrich. Mr. Millnis says that though
the roar of the latter is not so loud, it
has exactly the same tone as that of the
lion. But the ostrich always roars his
best, tho lion very seldom. This is part
ly because a "good" roar needs a great
physical effort The whole interior and
muscles of mouth, throat, 6tcmach and
abdomen ares for the moment, converted
into an organ of terrific sound, and the
sound does make the earth tremble or
appear to do so. But the attitude is not
that usually drawn. Unless he roars ly
ing down, when he puts his head up,
like a dog barking, the lion "emits his
first moan in any position, then drawe
in his nrxk and lowers his bead with
extended paws, right down to his fare
paws, as if about to be violently sick ;
while at the safne time the back is arch
ed, and the whole animal bears an ap
pearance of concentrated strain. "
This is Captain Millais' phonetio ren
dering of the sound, taken when listen
ing to three lions roaring their best :
"Moan roar r-o-a-r roar roar
roar grunt grunt grunt grunt (dy
ing away).!' Why lions roar, when it
ought to pay better to keep silent, ia not
yet explained. General Hamilton was
convinced that tigers hunting in com
pany roar to confuse and frighten the
deer. Possibly the lion roars, when
prowling around a camp, in the hope of
causing some of the draft animals to
break loose ; at other times it appears to
be a form of conversation with others at
a distance. London Spectator.
Lincoln Gave Him a Paaa.
Old Michael Malloy, a Morris canal
boatman, tells a story of Lincoln. He
said that he had deserted from the rebel
army, and was in Washington in 1804.
His half brother, John Reiley, was a
prisoner in the old capitol prison in
"I wanted to see Jack badly," said
Malloy, "but the provost marshal
wouldn't let me pass in. I stood near the
White House when I saw Old Abe and
Secretary Stanton walking together on
the other side of the street Says I to
myself, 'I'll see what Abe'U do,' and I
goes over and bows with my hat in my
" 'Well, my good man,' says Abe,
what can I do for yon?
"I ups and tells him how the provost
marshal pavo me the niarblo heart, and
Stanton moves on while Abe pulls a pa
per and pencil from his pocket and
"Let this man aee his half brother.
"I was so glad that I didn't stop to
thank the president But you bet your
life I passed into the prison. It 'ud done
yonr heart good to see that provost mar
