cution of the sentence of death in the i
electric chair the week of Oct 28.
On reaching the prison Czolgosz
collapsed completely. The mock
courage he has maintained and which
has been gradually failing the past
week and all but left him yesterday,
deserted him entirely. He is no
helpless and there is some concern as
to whether his strength can be kept
up nt all until he is cbliged to face
tne final ordeal in the death chamber
a month hence. .
Carried Ioto th. Prison.
Awaiting the arrival of the train
there was a
crowd of 200 people at
the depot. Either from feir of the
crowd, although it wa not very
demonstrative, or from sight of the
prison. Czolgosz's legs gave out. and
the deputy sheriffs were compelled to
cirry the man into the prison.
Inside, his condition became worse.
He was dragged up stairs moaning
and groaning, and evincing the most
abject fear. As soon as the handcuff
were unlocked the man was dragged
into the keep-jr't office, and the offi
cers proceeded to strip him and put
on a new suit cf clothes Daring the
operation Czolgosz cried and jelled
making the prisoner corridors echo
with the evidence of his Uiror.
The prison physician after

cessfully defended the America's cup
against his first trophy-hunter two
years ago," struggle for the yachting
supremacy of the wtorld in the first of
the cup races pt IJmji. But the excur
sion fleet returned lisapiointetl. Tho
irreat single-stickers went out fresh for
the battle, but the sea refused them
a field of conflict. The wind, never
more than nine, and sometimes as low
is three knots, was too light aud
hifty to carry the contestant over
the thirty-mile course in the time al
lotted by the roles.
Race Officially Declared On.
At the end of five and a half hours.
Hie prescribed. time, the race was offi

miles from the finish line. The Brit
isher was well behind Columbia. Amer

selves upon the result of the first trial.
The Columbia, was headed but once in
the twenty-five ujiles covered, and
theti the Britisher showed the way for
only five minutes.

In the w'indwnrd work the Columbia

" After the first ten miles the wind

marked increase in the number of men
applying for work at the public labor
offices. For every 100 open places in
July. 1000, there were 122.2 applicants,
while this year it has Increased to
HJ0.9 for the same number of places.
The labor offices re-iort nn increased
rush for places-, particularly by metal
workers nnd those employed in build
ing trades. The latter may hope fos
an improvement, at least in some
places, at the beginning of the autum

When brought to bay, the kangaroo
jumps like a flash for the hunters
chest and tries to crush It in with his
fore feet. To prevent this eacb man
wears across his breast a two or three
Inch thick matting. Armed with a
spear, with a club attachment at the
other end, they ride upon swift horsea
into a herd.
With the agility and equipoise of cir
cus riders they stand erect upon their
horses and use their spears and clubs.
The kangaroo Is able to jump clear
over a horse. As the game Is bagged
It is skinned, and the skin is stretched
on the ground and pegged down to pre
vent shrinkage. The flesh rurnlshes
meat for the camp.
Each man places his private mark
upon his booty, and when they have
100 apiece they return back to civiliza
tion. There are 20 varieties or kanga
roos, among them the blue, red walla
by, black, gray and forester, the latter
furnishing the best leather, as it lives
mainly in wooded sections.

flask of whisky." There was a dead
silence. "Will some gentleman In the
audience favor me with a pint of whis
ky?" There was no response, and the
conjuror began to look blank. "Sure
ly," be continued, 'in a southeastern
prohibition town I ought not to have to
ask a second time for such a thing. I
give my word I will return It intact.
Is there no"
"Stranger," said a tall, gaunt man
as he rose slowly from a front seat,
"wouldn't a quart flask do as well?"
"Why, certainly! I merely"
But before be could finish the gen
erous, open handed audience had risen
like one man and were on their way to
the platform in a body.
