A FEARLESS CONVICT.
STEADMAN'G DARING ESCAPE FROM
SAN QUENTIN PRISON.
One of the Mobt Remarkable Cases of
Jail Breaking on Record Accomplished
by a Feat Which Almost Bordered on
It is no thing to catch a thief and it
Is another thing to hold him. Dnriuj; a
meeting of the chiefs of police of all the
lartrtr cities of the United States and
Canada, which occurred at Milwaukee
there tvere reminiscences of remarkable
captures and of eiieapes which bordered
closely upon the miraculous.
"The nioi-t remarkable escape from
prisuii that I can recall," said William
A. Pinkertou, "was that of Frank
Steadman from the isaii Qutjutiu prison
But I'll not tell von about it, for here
is John 41ass, who caught Steadma:
anil sent him back to tan tuentiii."
Chief Cilass piucuel tno brown im
perial on his under lip reflectively for
a moment before lie resimnded to the
looks of inquiry bent upon him by tho
not familiar with the story.
"The escape to which you refer, Pin
kerton, was made after I sent Steadman
to San Queutin anil not before. I was
not the fortunate one to cet him after
that last wonderful break. And to tell
tho truth, I have never taken to myself
much credit for takinR him tho time
did. for it was.to a considerable dcsirco
a matter of rrnod fortune. You see, we
were just at that time keeping our eyes
open for a bank robber by the name of
I'arnes, who had cone into ono of tho
banks out there, covered the one man
who happened to be alone in tho place
at tho time, locked him up m the vault.
and then coolly walked ont of the bank
and out cf it;Lit with all the funds he
could cet his hands on.
"One day a man answering closely
the description we had of Barnes step
ped off the train at Los Angeles. We
took him in tow at once, but found
we did not have the bird we were after.
However, we managed to hold him
long enough to iiud out that he was
Frank Steadman, who had become no
torious even at that time as a successful
jail breaker. Ho hud four or five escapes
from prison in houtheru Indiana credit
ed to Lim. had got away from Joliet
and had still seven years to do at the
Illinois prison : had also been at Sau
Queutin, and had escaped from there
with five years unfinished.
"Steadman was a machinist by pro
fession, and a burglar by inclination
When he was scut back to Sau Queutin
to finish his time, ho was put to work
with other convicts in the engine room
It was hero that all idea came into his
brain that for absolute ilariigg and fear
lessness was typical of the man. Ho had
noticed that every evening at tho timo
the men working in tho engine room
Were lined up to bo marched away, tiio
machinery was stopped at exactly the
samo moment. Ho had observed as well
that n window leading to an adjacent
roof was not far from the top of the big
driving belt of the engine. From that
roof it was possible to reach the outer
wall of tho prison. Beyond tho wall
was freedom. Ho had escaped so many
times that his mind leverted again and
again to tho window high up on tho
wall of tho engine room. Apparently it
was beyond all possibility of being
reached. No ladder was to be obtained
Had such a thing been even standing
in place against tho wall, to break
from tho lino and scalo it with catliko
dexterity, although tho work of but a
few seconds, ho well knew would be
futile, possibly fatal. Ballets travel
fastei than legs, and tho guards wero
not bad shots. But desperate deeds de
mand desperate means. Some minds
niav work with an ingenuity born of
despair, but Steadman 's was of a differ
eut caliber. His plans were the out
growth of steadfast optimism.
"One day there camo to him as if by
inspiration the thought that the big belt
might bo tho means of carrying him to
his goal. He found that it was nupossi
l:Io to count the revolutions of the driv
ing wheel, but there were lacings in
the broad belt, which ho was able to
distinguish as a scrtof blur as it passed
a given point. For days and days lie
counted, and in his cdl at night he
spent his time in calculations. He di
covered the exact number of revolutions
the wheel made per minute. He learned
also by constant observation just how
many times the belt went round after
the engine was shut down.
"Ono evening, when the line had
been formed as usual at the close of the
day's work and as tho big wheel began
to lose its momentum, suddenly a con
ict sprang from the line, leaped to tho
belt, with outstretched arms grappling
loth edges of the broad leather. He had
calculated well tho strength that would
Le required, for the terrific wrench did
not loosen his grasp. Outward and up
ward he swung until he reached the
topmost point of the circumference. The
nicety of bis calculation had reaped its
reward. The belt stopped. He leapod to
bis feet, sprang through the window
and was gone before convicts or guards
bad recovered from their astonishment.
He caught tip a gnard's coat and bat,
dropped from tho wall and got away in
tbo dusk of the evening. I am inclined
to believe that as a mathematical propo
sition that was about as perfect a piece
of work as any man ever accomplished. "
"And did he get away without re
capture?" some ono asked.
"No, I am almost sorry to say, be did
not, " answered the Lns Angeles chief,
"for that ought by rights to be the de
nouement of tuch a story, which com
bines so much of daring and cleverness.
Steadman was taken again in a short
time and put to work at his old job.
There are bars over that high window
above the big drive belt now. Not lone
after this Steadman cot and nearly kill

serving out an additional sentence for
attempted mnrder at tbeFolsom prison,
which is situated some 2S miles from

HORSES ACTIONS IN BATTLE
Some Keep TKeir Hemds la the Mad Rosh
Some Iam, Them.
A man seldom cries out when hit in
tne turmoil of battle, it is the same
with a horse. Five troopers out 6f six,
when struck by a bullet, are out of their
saddles within a minute. If hit in the
breast or shoulder, up go their hands
and they get a heavy fall; if in the leg
or foot or arm, they lall forward and
roll off. But even with a foot cut off
by a jagged pieoe of shell a horse will
not drop. It is only when shot through
the head or heart that he comes down
He may bo fatally wounded, but bo
hobbles out -of tho fight to right or left
and stands with drooping head until
loss of blood brings him down. The
horse that loses his rider and is un
wounded himself will continue to run
with his set of fours until some move
ment throws him out. lben be goes
galloping here and there, neighing with
fear and alarm, but will not leave the
field. In bis racing about he may get
among the dead and wouuded, but ho
will dodge them, if possible, and in
any case leap over them When he has
come upon three or four other riderless
Breeds, they "fall in" and keep together,
as if for mutual protection, and the
"rally" on the bugle may bring the
vhole ef them into the ranks in a body.
A horse which has passed through a
battle unwounded is fretful, sulky and
nervous the same as a man for the
next three or four days. His first battle
is also the making or unmaking of him
us a warhorse. If tho nervous tension
has been too great, he will becomo
bolter in the face of danger, and there
by become a danger in himself. If tho
test has not been beyond him, he will
go into the next fight with head held
high and flecks of foam blowing from
his mouth as ho thunders over the
earth. Washington Post.
HE SQUANDERED MILLIONS
The Wildlv Reckless Financial Career of
Haron Albert Orant.
One cf the most dramatic if not ac
tually ono of tho largest failures, so far
as tho liabilities were concerned, was
that of Baron Albert Grant of "Emma
mine" notoriety. Grant was the un
crowned king of the financial world of
his day and generation. He made mil
lions almost as deftly as the late Mr.
liarney Barnato, and he spent them
right royally. He bought Leicester
souare and presented it, a free gift, to
tho people of London. He gave a din
ner to nearly a thousand city magnates
at a cost which was popularly reputed
at the time to have exceeded 100 guineas
a head, and which, in any event, un
doubtedly established a record in ex
travagant dinner giving which has yet
to be beaten.
And ho started out to build a palaro
in Kensington which should "knock
spots off" all other private residences.

was got up regardless of expense. The
ballroom walls wero inset with panels
of pink Italian marblo, costing '800
guineas each. Iu the entrance hall were
four pillars of porphyry, worth 4,000.
Tho building was scarcely finished
when tho crash came, and. it remained
for long a brick and mortar white ele
phaut on the bands of tho trustees in
bankruptcy. Eventually most of tho in
terior fittings and decorations were dis
posed of piecemeal. The grand staircase,
which had cost to build some '40,000,

of the late Mine. Tussand fur a trifle

Cats of Other Days.
Tho lot of the average nineteenth
century cat does not compare favorably
with that of its ancestors. Everybody
knows that the earlv Egyptians held
the cat sacred, und.auy one injuring a
sacred animal was liable to severe pun
islnnent. Among tho aucient laws of
Wales was a statute which prohibited
the slaughter of a cat under a curious
penalty. Tho owner of tho slaughtered
animal held it by the tip of the tail,
with its nose touching tho floor, and tho
slayer had to give him, by way of com
pensation, as much wheat as would
bury the entiro animal out of sight.
The grain was supposed to represent
tho amount that the owner would lose
through the depredations of vermin by
being deprived of the cat.
Saxony, Switzerland and other Eu
ropean countries also had laws enacted
for the protection of cats, which were
regarded of economic value. Now, how
ever, pussy is simply a decorative do
In 1861 the repeal of the paper duty
was moving the political world. J.ne
budget speech was preceded by. a rumor
that the basis ol the scheme would be
the repeal of the tea duty and that this
would upset the government. Just be
fore Mr. Gladstone rose to make bis
statement there was handed to Lord
Palinerston on the treasury bench the
following note from Lord Derby: "My
dear Pam What is to be the great pro
posal tonight? Is it to be tea and turn
out?" "My dear Derbr, wrote tne
premier in reply, "it is not tea and
turn ont. It is to be paper and station-
try." Gesta Typographia.
In For It.
"How do you do, Miss Leslie? So
awfully glad to see yon again. So very
sorry yon weren t at Lady Brown's
dance last night. There positively was
riot one pretty girl in the room."
"I am not Mtss Leslie, bnt I was at
Lady Brown's dance last night." Lon
It is an old saying that those who

THE ENGLISH NOT PROFANE
Little Bad Language In London Outside
' of Petticoat Lane.
Little rough or rude language is used
by the English. They even fight with
out swearing and get very drunk aud
noisy without employing strong Ian
guaue. They love to chaff aud guy each
other, and the crowds and the street
people who drive horses and . peddl
goods and bang about the corners are a
great deal wittier than most of us give
them ciedit for being, but they seldom
resort to bad language. I never heard
much of it uutil I went to Petticoat
lane, and I know a woman who ha
lived here two years and been constant
lv about town who tells me that in that
time she has only heard one oath from
an Englishman's lips. The worst word
I heard in Petticoat lane was " bloody. '
That, however, is the worst word
could have heard iu English opinion
it is the foulest word there is. I have
only heard one man use it aud he did
not speak it. He was very angry, and
ho. spelled it.
I am telling you this because I know
that at home in America we associate
it with the English and put it in Eug
lishmen's mouths iu our anecdotes, as
if it were a matter of course that
should be used to give a local color to
an English story. Americans come here
aud make nse of tho word for the comic
value that they attach to it, and yet
nsure ny readers- that if they tried to
think of any really disgusting term they
had ever heard and made use of instead
they cor.ld not more startle or shock
these English -ears.
English sailors havo brought tho
word "bloody" to our shore sailors
and prizefighters and stablemen, and
only such persona cling to it here,
What vro consider a very much fouler
word his a vastly wider circulation
bnt is not considered as bad as
"bloody." All this is very strange and
requires a native to explain it, especial
ly as "bloody" is merely the contrac
tion of tho oath "by our Lady," which
was more or less commonly used in tho
ancient days when this was a Boiuan
The people who try to swear without
swearing who in our country say
"hully chee" and "by enpes," all use
tho word blooming over here.

this bloomin thing, but I'll 'ave
bloom in try at it," is what I heard
street fakir eav to a crowd the other
day. There is no harm in that at all,
aud it is much more typically English
than tho word "bloody," besides being
It is funny what mistakes nations
make about ono another. Over hero the
very smart thing iu reporting the speech
of us Americans is to make us all and

A Really Historical Novel. '
To produce a so called historical novel
has been attempted by many, but with
indifferent success by the majority, so
far as history is concerned. Alike tne
best known and the most successful
authors of this class are Scott, Kings-
ley and Lyttou. In grouping books of
this typo in an order of merit based on
their historical worth, it cannot be de
nied that "Tho Last of the Barons"
should be awarded the first place, with
"Henry Esmond" aud "Hereward the
Wake" bracketed as second. Victor
Hugo's "L'Historied'nn Crime," which
has been called "the apotheosis of the
special correspondent," is a notable ex
