tim of a murderous attack by Fred
Smith, the colored porter, a week ago,
is now well on the road to recovery,
according to his physicians. The
wound inflicted by the bullet In his
neck Is healing slowly, and except for a
alight difficulty In breathing. It Is caus
ing him but little trouble. The turn
In his favor has been noticeable for
the past two or three days, at which
time K was announced that he was
practically out of danger. Although It
was not certain that he would recover
at the time, his general condition was
stated to be favorable and his life was
despaired of only for one or two days
Immediately following the shooting. It
will be at least a week before Officer
Janssen Is able to leave the hospital.

May Be Insane. Whether John Cro
zier, who Is now a patient at St.
John's hospital, is mentally unbalanced
or is afflicted with a malady-that af
fects his brain, is the question which
the county authorities are endeavoring
to settle before any definite action is
taken to hold him on a criminal charge.
Crozier was placed under arrest by
Sheriff Eckhart after he had swung a
heavy axe on the head of a member of
a camping party southwest of the city
two nights ago, nearly killing the vic
tim of his wrath. The injured man
was knocked down and only the glanc
ing blow the axe struck him saved his
life. A large portion of his scalp was
torn off and the attendance of a physi
cian was needed to sew up the wound.
When Crozier was placed under arrest
and asked why he had struck his vic
tim with an axe, he replied that he
didn't intend to hit him hard.

RECOVERED HER VOICE.
Girl, Dumb Two Years, Said "Goodby
to Her Dying Sister.
Mary H. Hecht of St. Louis, fifteen
years old, who has been dumb for two
years, strangely recovered her power
of speech at the bedside of her dying
Mary was passionately devoted to
her four-year-old sister, who had been
111 of scarlet fever and she had been
in almost constant attendance at her
bedside for three weeks.
Suddenly she tried to sit up in bed,
6aying, "Goodby, Mary."
To the surprise of all Mary replied
in full tones, "Goodby, sister."
The little girl died a few minutes
later. Since then Mary's voice has been

Short Weight Publlo Scales. That
one pair of licensed scales in Mollne
would register your, baby's weight at
only six pounds, when in reality the
youngster weighed 11 units avoirdu
pois. Is the discovery which was made
by Commissioner Eastman of public
health and safety. There cams to Mr.
Eastman's office a farmer who had
brought a load of corn to town and of
fered it for sale. The corn was weigh
ed on one pair of the licensed scales
and the farmer was dissatisfied with
the result. He took the corn te an
other seals and found that the weight
of his corn had Increased by three
bushels. This meant that had he soid
the corn following the first reading he
would have lost $1.56, at the prevail
ing price of 52 cents per bushel. The
commissioner took the time" to serve
notice on the scale owners in question
that they must have their scales tested
immediately and remedy the defect in
the register. One owner of the two has
what would be called In common par
lance "a bum pair of scales," and a test
is the only thing that will bring the
real difficulty to light.
