Why Ha Cannot (tfortn.
Two genteelly rlressixl men walked into the
People Savings and Dejxisnt bank, in Denver,
Cola It was shortly after tbo noon hour,
and most of the ollh-uils were at dinner. Only
the cashier remained, tuid he approwbed the
wickot window to converse r. iili one of the
callers, who wished to nm!;t nrranguments to
boconie a depositor.
Suddenly a noiso In tho roar of the hank
caught the cashier's ear. He turned to see the
other stninj-or at the door of tho big open
vault "Quick as a flush tho official ran to the
safe, eliing, as lie Kissed the counter, a re

of the robber, be made him put up his bands.
The prisoner quietly submitted to arrest.

and appearance eeeiiHsd to confirm his story.

small and slender of stature. One feature of
his attire, however, dwpened the suspicions
of the police. Ho woro heavy felt shoes, but
then be urgorl that he was a consumptive,
and they were to protect his foot from damp
nets. it was "mttuc nonxcE."
Four days later Robert and William rink-
ertOD, the celebrated detectives, happened to
stop over in Denver. The authorities had as
yet been bafllod in discovering the identity of
"Mr. Metz," and dtvibd to call on those
chiefs of thief takers.
"Little Horace!'' exclaimed Rob I'inkerton
imood as he clapped his eyes on the prisoner.
Mets was silent for a moment, and then
frankly admitted he was nono other than
Horace Ho van, one of the most celebrated
and successful bank sneaks the world evor
When reminded of his arrest by Mr. Pinker
Ion for the robbery of the Middletown (Conn.)
bank in 1870, out of which ho secured 100.-
000 In bonds, Little Horace udiuitted that
such was the fact.
Talking with Defect ivo Pinkerton, Ilovau
gave a brief sketch of his career, and it is cer
tainly a most interesting account of the life
of a criminal.
Little Horace has been associated with tho
best bank sneaks in tho country, and bis linos
have frequently thrown hint with other noted
crooks whose specialties differed from bis. In
appearance he is very gentlemanly looking,
of slender build and of genteel appearance
and drew. Ho is the last man whom any one
would suspect ot being a dangerous criminal.
He is possessed of tho greatest nervo of anv
man in the world, and, up to eight or ten
yean ago, was most successful. Unlike most
professional criminnls, ho is very steady in
bis habits, outsidoof associating with them in
bis profession he uever associates with them,
nor resorts to places frequented by criminals.
Although he bus been engaged for a number
of years as a professional criminal, he is very
little known to police oflicinls. Ho is domestic

In 1S70, in company with a man who has
since reformed, and who hi now living hon

and the man before mentioned were arrested,
but Rice got away with tho money. Both
men were released, as tho money was re

tenced to two years and eleven mouths in the
Western penitentiary at Allegheny City. He
got away, and Robert Pinkerton arrested

and county bonds. Tho bonds were returned
and he was released. In 1 VM be was arrested

Eastern penitentiary. lie was pardoned out

Charleston, S. C, should bo giatlfxl, and tho
authorities agreed to hia terms. IIn gave bis
testimony, which was Tint credited by the
Jury, and in 18.S4 li was di-Hiarged. A
month after bis release he and Uuck Taylor
ware arrested in Boston, but as nothing could
be proved against him ho wna simply ordered
out of the city.
In the fall of lSSo he was detected in ab

Marriage Not a Jj'aillire.
A New Viejc-t,? this great Question which
8n9ws how Ladies may retain the
' Love of their Husbands.
No woman who is unattractive In person, mind,
or disposition can hope to interest or hold men.
Bad complexion, dnll eyes, listless nature never
did or can attract mankind. On tbo other hand
bow many women with clear r kin, beneath which
the Mood can be seen throbbing with health,
bright eyes and life and animation In every move
ment, make the world a blessing to their husbands
brothers, lovers or friends. The secret of clear
skin, bright eyes and animation is good circula
tion of the Ibood. When the blood is slow the
person Is stnpld. Keep the blood moving. Bat
how? Thero Is hntoaewsy and that is to help
Na'ure by a gentle stimulant.
Exe'cise is a splendid stlmnlant but it Is almost
impossible for ladies to take the kind oj exercise
that will produce health and beauty. But the
blnod mnst be kept moving, and the dlrcoverv
which has done more to add health and beaaty
than any other know . cause is Duffy's Pare Malt
Whiskey. This great remedy stimulates hta th
Uy. It Is not an intoxicant. Thousands of
women who were once tired, depreencd and dis
couraged are now in perfe t health and beauty
entirely through Us use. Many prominent tem
perance ladles have given 1 their hearty endorfe
m nt, and clergyman and priests In every promi
nent city use and recommend it. Ureat oare
should be shuwn In buyln - only the canine, for
no bottled whiskey has the wonderful qualities
WPlei are posse-sed by Duffy's.
When ladies are k' pt bright and sttractlvt and
husbands are considerate sud kind, few marriages
will be "failures."
