GROWING IN FAVCK
Shown by Rs-cent Large Increase In
Saies of a Popular Chewing Tobacco.
Recent increases in the sales o?
Piper Haidsieck, a highly-grade chew
ing tobacco, are pointed out by to
bacco experts as an indication that
there is a decidedly growing prefer
ence for plug tobacco. It is the gen
eral opinion la the tobacco trade that
this is due to wider appreciation of
the fact that tobacco is most satis
fying when chewed. The manufac
turers of Piper Heidseick are taking
advantage of the present trend to
biins this tobacco to the general at
tention of tobacco users here.
Local tobacco dealers have been
supplied with a limited number of
standard safety razors and are giv
ing one to each customer who pur
chase ten cents' worth of Piper
Heidseick. The razor is going so
fast, say the dealers, that the supply
is being rapidly depleted. And ex
perienced tobacco users seem to be a
unit In the opinion that Piper Held
eieck is a very fine, satisfying chew
ing tobacco. The occasion, there-
f -e, seems to be an all-around bar

Mrs. Thaw's latest utterance la an
attack on William T. Jerome. I
Jerome has shown himself clearly
in sympathy with those who, in his
own closing speech at the second
homicide trial, he classed as 'a lot of
degenerates," " Mrs. Thaw declared.
"In that speech he said: 'Certain peo
ple would be only too glad to have
this fellow adjudged a lunatic so that
th: thing could not come out.'
"Since that speech Jerome has
changed his attitude and has
worked so consistently with these 'cer
tain people' that not only has a sane,
acquitted man been Imprisoned for
years, tut, like the human hyena he
has since been designated, Jerome
trailed the fugitive across the border
into Canada and ts still on the scent."
One of the most Influential citizens
of New Hampshire has urged Thaw's
removal from the state. The man Is
former United States Senator William
E. Chandler, an abls lawyer.
"It Is difficult to devise an argu.
aaent to Justify lawyers In taking his
money for their contention that the
governor of New Hampshire should
not deliver him to the governor of New
York, as required by the constitution
of the United States," said Mr. Chan

and found not guilty by reason of in

It has been said that crabs are as
artful as "a barrow load of monkeys,"
and no one who has read Professor
Edward Step's "Messmates; A Book of
Strange Companionships In Nature,"
will deny that there is considerable
truth In the remark. Amazing indeed
are some of the revelations which the
professor makes regarding crabs.
He relates, (or Instance, how the
common hermit crab actually keeps a
housemaSd to clean out bis bouse.
When he first starts life this particu
lar species of crab bunts for some large
shellfish's shell in which be can lire
at ease, rent free. He usually chooses
a large whelk shell and introduces a
large sea worm, belonging to what in
known as the "nereis" family and
which grows to a length of six or
elgbt Inches, to keep the Interior of
the shell clean. The crab feeds hearti
ly on sea creatures that wander care
lessly into the shell and throws the in
digestible parts of them about the
floor. The cereis worm promptly con
sumes these remains and keeps the
shell as clean c a new pin.
The artfulness of thla crab, too, la
strikingly Ulnrtrated by the Ingenious
manner In which he protects himself
against the large fish thich look npoa
blm as an excellent article cf food.
Sometimes be Induces a sponge to
grow on his shell. Sponges in a IHinj
condition give ont a strong odor, which
is dlsfinct'.v nnnleasanr tn ficS nH
Ieven a dogfish will not attack a crab
protected in this manner.
So baldy intoxicated as not to be
responsible for his actions, according
to the statement of witnesses, W. J.
McGlade of Winfleld, Iowa, aged 40,
Saturday night at 8:30 staggered
onto the ferry dock at, the foot of
Eighteenth srcet, and walking to the
edge, stepped off Into space. Several
well dressed men who were loitering
about the dock, heard tho splash
and fully grasped the situation, but
made no effort to save the unfortu
nate man. In fact they stood idly by
without even giving the alarm. The
body was recovered yesterday morn
ing at 11 o'clock, opposite the Island
City boat club at. the foot of Twelfth
street. The coroner's jury at Whee
lan's undertaking parlors, this morn
ing returned a verdict of "accidental
Rore is thrown-.
McGlade, according to witnesses,
had been drinking heavily, and seem
ingly had.no idea as to his where
abouts. After the fatal plunge, the
body wis seen struggling in the water
by A. W. Cameron, a ship carpenter,
who was some distance farther down
the stream. Cameron threw a line to
the drowning man, but states that
McGlade made no effort 'to grab the
rrpe or save himself. 1 1 is lead wa
Ul above water and the rescue could
easily been accomplished had the vic
tim grasped the line.
Yes'erday morning members of the
Island City boat club, while sitting on
: the club house veranda, discerned
the body floating down stream, a short
distance from the shore. Manning a
brat, Paul Eastman and M. S. Ecker
towed the corpse to shore and noti
