Haasa a l.afe Career.
Tbe Washington correspondent of tbe
St. Louis Hrpublif bas thia to say of the
career of tbe new commissioner of pen
sions since bis retirement from tbe office
of commissioner of Internal revenue:
liaum resigned bis place as commia
sioner f Internal revenu. He did this
after baring formally entered into a con
tract with tbe Lorillards and other big
tobacco firms. A little before be bad

due i n u the Internal revenue- tax on lobar
co. Ksum being very familiar with the
internal revenue laws and regulations and
the practice before the treasury depart
ment, accepted a retainer from tbe Lor
illards and other tobacco barons and be
came their attorney here. His chief bus
iness was to collect the rebate on menu
factured tobacco made possible bv tbe re
duction of tbe tobacco tal. Knowing
all about tbe question and having a des
ciiieil pull with Walter tvans, his suc
cessor, he provad a very Valuable man
for bis employers, aud at tbe same time
piled up Hie shekels Id bis own pocket.
After that he was employed by a combine
of Intern! revenue collectors and elln
terns! revenue collectors to collect money
from tbe treasury for thein by virtue of
an obsolete law allowing them a percent
age from all moneys collected from the
government. In this be was also sue
ressful, and In cone)innce he had a mo

department. After awhile, however,

"Everybody who wants a berth In a

known Pullman sleeper conductor. "I
have been In the employ of the company
for fourteen years, aud I never yet bail
an application fur an upper berth. Of
course, tbe upper liertb is not so easy of
access as tbe lower berth, but If you don't
mind climbing to the upper berth you
will at once admit, after tbe night is
over, that it Is the most comfortable of
tbe two. Tbe ventilation is better and
you are not so close to tbe rumbling
noise. You are more private than you
are lu a lower berth, and in case of acci
dent you have a chance of coming out on
top. In hot weather tbe upper berth is
cooler tiian tbe lower. The lower berth,
aa you know, la made up from tbe cusb
toned scats, which are of warm material.
I have never known a man to fall out of
an upper berth. I think if tbe company
would make a difference of a half dollar
In fayor of tbe upper berth It would soon

PRETZELS MADE BY HAND.
The Only Sort the Epicurean 1
.lffi ta CtMHit.
"There Is no use In trying to make pretzels
by machine," amid a Washington baker man
to reporter. "I rs attempted it, and It's a
dead failure. Tbe Germane won't bay any
but the band made, which, for soma reason
nobody has been ever able to make out, are
sweeter and of a better flavor, evao when tbe
dough used Is precisely the same In both.
Then, again, tbe one. turned out by hand
have a delicate sort of akin which tbe ma
chin, mails lack. A curious thing it Is, too,
since there Is no difference in material, the
kneading Is tbe same, and the only variation
In prorssa la between stamping with steel
dns and twisting Into shape with the hands."
"Did you ever see a pretsei madel Then
just, look here, contlutMd the baker man,
grabbing as he spoke a small bunk of ordi
nary bread dough from a heap on the table
eloea by. Ha rolled Uie bunk rapidly over
tbe board with both bands until It waa
long, thin, cylindrical strip. Then taking
each end of the atrip between a thumb and
forefinger be curled It with two or three
quick mot tons Into the shape of a perfect
pretMH. Tbe whole procesa required perbapa
four swoonrts, but he was not trying to do It
"But a pretiel Isnt made or ordiuary
dough," suKjented tbe iwteper man.
"It. material la simply Hour and water,
with sit pounds of lard added for each bar
rtl of flour. The pretsei dough is made up
Just like bread dou;h, and the factory hand
tarns the pretsei nut on. by one In precisely
the way I showed you. As fast as they are
given shape, like this one L.have just made,
they are thrown into kettlea of boiling lye,
kept at the teniwrature uecmsnry by steam
Jackets. A moment later they era fished out
with skimmers aud thrown upon a bed of
alt. Finally, with what salt adheres to
them, they are picked up giugerly and laid In
ovens, with tbe unsalted sidea down. When
they are done they are ready for consump
tion, usually with beer. No method has thus
far been discovered of salting pretzels other
wise than by hand, so delicately must they
be bandied at this stag of tbe performance."
"But how are they cut by machinery P
"Like ordinary crackers. The dough k
rolled out in thin sheets and laid upon an end
leas belt, which carries them along beneath a
steel die that cuts out half a doxen or more
pretsei shaped pieces at each hammer like
stroke. Tha pretsels produced in this way
look exactly like the hand made, and, being
of the same material, ought to be quite as
good, but they are not. Tbe rest of the pro
cess has to be performed by band auy way.
I fancy that the Germans are prejudiced also
against machine made pretxela because they
regard them as against honest manual labor.
Any war they sell for 8 cents a pound lew Id
the market than tbe hand made ones bring.
Pennsylvania Is the great pretzel making state.
It la an enormous industry In Scranton,
Philadelphia, especially In Pottstown, and all
through tbe coal mining regions, which are
thickly settled with Germans. The people
employed in manufacturing them are alrof
that race, and, In fact, wherever you find
prets.lv In the world tbe German la found
also. To tbe Teuton they are, In conjunction
with beer, what ambrosia was to the gods,
with nectar on the side." Washington Star.

A Narrow Ksrap.

me which nearly closed my days with tbe

my presence, when, with a grunt of vengeful
ilguldcatx-e, It waa on Its feet. Instinctively
I t.irned and Had, happily prwwuting my

like a bolt from a catapult. In my fall I got
a couple of ribs broken, and thus lay stunned
and belpleaa. I was aware, however, of Its
approecb to finish me off, and I closed my

EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
A Featnr. ot the renin Trial That
Cased a aeasatlna.
( Hicsoo, O t SH The Cronin trial is
loaded with sensations. lltrJiy has tbe
sound of one died away before another
breaks looao. So that when one took place
in the course of proceedings Ssturlay, it
w u looked UKn as pretty rum-h a matter of
murse, although it involve! the ending o(
the trial an.l ttte release of the prisoners.
The peculiar feature of tbe matter was that
for the first tine, protiably, th. attention of
a court w called to Ihe lmiosibility of in
forcing a well-known rule of l.-gui practice.
Dr. Moure was on tho sian I as au expert
aod bis testimony was in tb. natur. of cor
roboration of that of Dr. Egbert given
Friday, aa to wounds on Dr. Croniu's hea.1,
and their necessary result that of death.
When the croea-examination was taken up
by Forrest be asked witneaa whether be bad
road tbe testimony of Dr. Egbert in tbe
morning papers, and Dr. Moore answered
that be had. Forrest thereupon moved that
Moore's teetimony be strick"n out and Judge
McConnell sustained tb. motion.
Tb. Rnl. and Its Purpo.
Judge Mct'onnall's ruling was in cou
fortuity witb the rule excluding witnesses
in any case from a court room while the
testimony in tb. case is being given. Of
course such a rule can have but one objjet, an J
that Is to prevent one witness from heuring
what another witiisss testiQjs to and ap
parently, also, from knowing what is testified
in order that there may be no collusion be
tween witnesses. Bui the daily papers now
print Verbatim reports of every particle of
testimony introduced iu tbe case, so that auy
one who can read can thoroughly inform
himself on the subject can make a study of
It, if he desires. If be can not read some one
wbo oun may poet bun, and collusion be
t n witneeses tieoome. a simple matter.

The ruling wa. hardly out of tu. judge's
mouth when 1-awyer Hrne. was on bis feet
with the exclnmntion: "This case may as
well be adjourned at this moment " Tuere
was no Hon lu of it, no ueceesity for the
wordy war that took place between the op

else could see that the state had no cuss if
those wbo had read the testimony as printed

should not be in tbe court -room or hear the

stricting the wi'.nesees from reading tb.
Forrest's Reply to Mill.
In answering Mills' remarks Forrest said
that the purpose of the order waa well
known. It was to k-ep witnesses from know
ing the t stimnny of each other on tbe
brsncb ot a case in wlreh they are to testify;
and he vigoroutly utgnd tbe judge to stand
by bis ruling. But the judge was not pre
pared to take tue responsibility of killing
tbe cnan, and be promptly rescinded tbe
ruling and aitmlted tbe testimony. He said:

from whose stable the rig was hired that

Diuau waa the men wbo waa to prove Dan
Conghlin's connection witb tbat part of the

tbe man objected, but finally took tbe rig
and started north in tbe direction of

Coughlio and the detective told him tbat he
(Coughltn) and Dr. Cronin were not on good
terms, and therefore be requested Dinan to
say nothing about tbe matter. Later Oougb

rig bad gone to New Mexico. Btlll later
Cougblin told Dinan tbat he was a weak

testified, and at tbe close of his evidence

Athens, Oct, C& Yesterday was a most
beautiful one, the sun shing as it shines only
in Greece, and all tbe elements seeming to
concur in happy auspices of the wedding of
Princess Sophie, of Germany, to the duke of
Sparta. A gorgeous procession, escorted by
an imposing array of cavalry, left the royal
palace at 11 o'clock. Tbe guests occompany-
iog the carriages comprised the emperor and
empress of Germany, the Empress Frederick,
tbe king an 1 queen of Denmark, the prince

people of only less exalted rank. Following
the line of rarriage came a magnificent
ftate carriage drawn by aix prancing
black chargers, and containing quaen Olga
of Greece and the blushing bride.
The Kaiser Was Kesplendent
The most brilliant of all the brilliant uni
forms adorning the persons of royalty was
tbnt of Emperor William, which, as well as
the robes of the empress, fairly biased with
dis.inonds. There was great enthusiasm
among tbe people wbo thickly crowded tbe
route of tiie procession. The wedding serv

hour. Afterward the cortege returned by a

demonsrrativeness on the part of the popu

At the moment the young couple were

producing a marvellous effect upon tbe bril

kissed three times the king of Greece, the

There is reason to believe, however, tbat
tbe premier came nearer to tbs truth of ths

of the opinion tbat a financial policy based

maintains that foreign lead mixed with

judgment yea: in tbs interest of increased

each eeacoast section should be iucluded in

Washington Citt, Oct Si "Shall tbe

letf" 1. tbe question that i. pusaliug Hmts
tary Noble just now ; and well it may, for it
is a very delicate one to handle. Tbe Cber
okae ludian commission, however, which
spent last summer in an unsucceesful at
tempt to induce tbe Indians to surrender
tnese lanaa to tne Rovernmeut do not sssm
to consider the matter at all difficult of
solution, for they have asked StvTetary No-
Lie to drive tbe cattlemen out forthwith.
These men, tbe commission urge, by tbeir
inuueiice with tbe Indians bave so far pre
vented tbe commission from being success
ful. It is explained that tiie cattlemen lease
large tracts of land from the Indians in the
Cherokee outlet for grazing purposes, and
the money received by ths Cherokee, from
this source is, perhaps, their chief source of
revenue. The cattlemen also make a good
thing out of it by gracing large herds of Texas
cattle on the lands, and shipping them at
opportune times to the western markets.
The Meat of th. Itifflonlty.
Tbe delicate point of the matter ia thai
tbe leases to tlie cattlemen are approved and
formally ratified by the secretary of tbe in
terior, and for Secretary Noble to accede to
the request of his Cherokee commission, and
drive these men from the "outlet" would be
equivalent to repudiating tbe acta of the sec
retary of tbe interior in granting the leasee
tothi cattle nen. O.i the other band, hie
conimi s on inform him that tbey caanot be
successful witb their negotiations unless he
does so. Tbe matter is causing Secretary
Noble considerable anxiety, aud although he
bas been considering for it tbe past three
weeks he has not yet been able to reach a
conclusion satisisctory to himself.
