Do Negroes Sneeze?
"It was Professor Schroeder of Louis
Tille," volunteered a surgeon to a re
porter, "who first ventured tbe opinion
that tbe negro never sneezes. The state
ment was made in reply to a question by
1'rofessoT Gross, the famous Philadel
phia surgeon, A smile passed around
tbe listeners, and Professor Schroeder,
observing that there wns some doubt
about bis statement, reiterated it with
"He then explained that while there
were no structural arrangements about
tbe breathing apparatus of the colored
race that has been discovered which pre
vented it from sueeuug it was a fact
that the colored niau did not encode,

"Tbe debato on the subject occupied
nearly an hour at a meetiug of the In
ternational Surgical association, which
held a convention in the old Lincoln
ball tome years ago. Since then I have

toes sneece occasionally, and tbe nearer

ARSON IN GLASS BULBS
Scientific Methods of a Gang of
THEY USE A XYSTERIOUS E0SB.
Hade to Explode at st Certain Time Its
Ingredieata a Conundrum For Chrmist.
Strange Discoveries of Chicago Fin
With a simple looking class bulb, con
taining an unknown chemical mixture, a
bold band of Chicago firebugs hove been
conducting operations on a big eculo for
over four years. In this time they have
defrauded insurance companies out of a
large amount of money in risks and re
Wards. Three of the men implicated are
Bow nadir penitentiary sentences, and a
fonrth is trying to evade capture by the
police. Inspector M. W. Conway of tbe
Chicago lire department is continent the
gang has been effectually broken up. hut
be will not be entirely satisfied with his
work until be masters the mystery of the
glass bulb and its contents. This is a task
in which insurance companies have en
gaged tho services of expert chemists, but
thus far no progress has been made.
Last spring a mun giving his name ns
William Knton o;irncd an neency in
Wheeling, W Vs., for tho distribution cf
toys, willnwwnrennd similar goods, ijiter
be took out s'5,000 insurance on his stool:.
and following this there was a tire. In
the meantime tbe suspicions of the insur
ance men had been aroused, and there
was an Investigation, which resulted in
the arrest of Kuton and bis subsequent
conviction. When he was arraigned for
trlul, a Chicago attorney appeared to de
fend him. It developed that Katon him
self was from Chicago; and that another
Chicago man hud been there and had a
conference with him about tUe timo of his
arrest. Cn tbe trial a negro named Gran
dison, who had worked for Eaton, told of
seeing some suspicious glass bulbs about
tbe store, wh'.sh his employer had cau
tioned him against handling.
Inspector Conway heard of all these
things and made up his mind that the
firebug gang which had I icon operating in
Chicago had transferred themselves to
other ports of the country, still nsing that
city as a base. It was in 1893 that incen
diary fires were at their worst here. The
band was then composed of Fred Smith,
William Eaton, William Alexander, Henry
Schueck, and, so Conway asserts, of Fred
6. Cowie. Tbe method of operation, as
shown in sworn confessions now in posses
sion of the authorities, was this:
One of the band would rent a store.
whirh would he fitted up under Smith's
directions, the shelving In every Instance
being painted with black asphaltsim, to
make It more inflammable. A dummy
would next be found to pose as proprietor,
and a stock of unsalable goods brought In
from Schucck's factory. Bogus billheads,
bearing the names of reputable business
firms, wir.-? printed and tilled In to show
the pnrchuu of large quantities of valu
able goods. Insurance to tbe amount of
$10,000. S3.Y0O0. and in some instances
(40.U0U, was taken out and tbe premiums
promptly paid. Suddenly there would bo
a fire. Proof of value of stock was mads
by striking a balance between the amount
shown by bogus invoices and tho sales
book, and in nearly every case the insur
ance companies had to settle. Paul Loe
wenmeyer, in a confession nnder oath,
says the band ran a regular school of in
struction and bad every danger point well
Finally, after numerous disastrous tires
In Chicago, the band was cornered and
convicted. Smith turned out to be the
tame man who was sent to Joliet for brib
ing Cronin jurors, and afterward posed as
an evangelist at a West Madison street
mission. Alexander made a confession.
Schueck got his prison sentence commuted
to a tl.OuO fine. Eaton bad to face the
music. What worried Inspector Conway
was that he could not detect the means of
starting the fires. In one case Alexander
said be ignited the blaze by throwing a
burning match Jnto a barrel of dry excel
sior, but subsequent developments make it
possible that this was merely a blind to.
draw attention from the glass bulb wfaicbi
Is now known to bave been used in many
of their jobs.
This bulb looks something like an eleo
trio light globe, but Is a little larger than
those osed on the ordinary incandescent

bulbs bave bean found at Xenia. O..

with some chemical mixture which cu be
so proportioned s to burst the glass and
break eat Into flame at any given time.
Smith locked Lis store at Xer.ia on Satur
day night and went to Columbus. While
be was away a fire broke out. and under
ordinary circumstances he would have had
a complete alibi from a charge of arson.
Claim for the insurance money was. not
pressed, however, when it became known
that the authorities bad evidence of ex
periments with mysterions glass bulbs, of
midnight mixings of chemicals and of
heat tssts in a stove. The fires in Wheel
ing and Huntington were set in the same
Loewenmeyer, who was to have man
aged the fire in theKclipse store at Leavitt
and Harrison streets, Chicago, says his in
structions were to watch for the breaking
out of the blaze and then throw plenty of
water on tho surrounding goods' before he
gave nn alarm. With this asacIowr.be
chemists are working on the idea that the
bulbs are filled with same material tho
ignition of which is heightened Lycoming
in contact with water. It was at first
thought tbe bulbs were openitud by elec
tricity, as tho witness Grundison in the
Wheeling trial said he noticed wires at one
end of them. In none of tho stores whore
tires have taken place could any sign of an
electrical outfit, or even of Aires, be discov
ered, and tho theory now accepted is that
the explosion and dimes aro generated
within the bulb itself, tho Litter being
blown into impalpable powder, thus de
stroying all trace of the device.
Fred Smith is hawed by Inspector Con
wny and other fire and police ollicials as
being tbe head und brains of tho gang, the
others being merely his tools. It is Smith
who is credited with responsibility for the
bulb device. All kinds of oilers of clem
ency and even money reward have been
made to him if be will tell the secret of its
Ingredients and method of operation, but
be declines to make tho facts known. By
the side of this contrivance the arson ap
paratus of nil other firebugs is clumsy and
easy of detection. The New Yorkers who

ing evidence of their work behind them
and were recdily caught.
Armed with his glass bulb, or three or
four of them, the Chicago llrcbug propor
tionates the explosive material to do its
work in, sny, ten hours. He fills the bulbs,
places them in inflammable stock, and
then, openly and with ostentatious leave'
takings, boards a train for a town 300
miles awny. Ten hours later fire destroys
bis heavily insured stock and there is no
trace of criminal mechanism. That man
has a pretty strong alilil, and be knows it,
as do also the insurance people. These
latter may have their suspicions, but they
need proofs, and this Is why they want to
know how those mysterious bulbs are

of a centripetal tendency which ia rea
sonable and easily understood. The

The well to do English try to spend part
ox tuo year ia London, tbe t rench ta
Paris. They do it and keep their conn
try homes besides. Our westerners have
a more difficult problem. Tbey are much
farther away from their social and polit
ical renters than most of the French or
the English, and tbe idiosyncrasies of
tne American climate complicate their
borne coming. Consider the rase of the
rich people of the great Ohio cities.

Standard oil, or politics, or something,
and has become solvent beyond tbe
dreams of avarice, develops a lawful de
sire to live at the center of tbinp and
builds a house in New York or Wash

November to May.
He still has a house in Cleveland, but
when is bo going to live in it? Not in
ummer, for his neighbors who stay at
nome in the winter come east to tbe
seashore in tbe summer. He may find
Cleveland attractive in ibe late surins
aud the early fall, but the chances are
that bis family will tell him that it
doesn't pay to travel so far and open
and close a bouse for such abort periods.
Tbe upshot of it must tend to be that
tbe abutters stay up on tbe Cleveland
man' boose in Cleveland, and tbat be
lives elsewhere, and merely goes borne
to vote or on errands of business. And
wby doesn't be give it up altogether?
Because considerations of trade or senti
ment or of politic forbid. It pays to be

somewhere, and Obio is a good state to
bail from. Harper's Weekly.
