BAKER & HOUSMAN,
Wholesale Dealers for the Celebrated
Agent L. R Frink, of the United States
Express company, whose unexplained a j
sence from the city since Saturday, at de
tailed in last night's A rocs, bad eausid
a suspicion of irregulartiea in his ic-
counts, is an absconder and a fugitive
from justice. The exact amount of liU
shortage is not known ; the representatives
of the company here,Route Agents T. D.
Patterson and B. W. Hall, decline to li
ralge the amount, hut acknowledged t lat
nevertheless there is a shortage.
Mr. Frink left two letters in bis dk
on his departure Saturday night, one ad
dresstd to his wife and one to an rm-
ploye of the company in Chica'go, in
both of which he confessed that Here
had been a drainage in his accounts . and
that he saw that he was incapable of I ur
ther transacting the business of the of) ice.
The amount, according to Route Af ent
Patterson, is not very large. That ( ens
tleman stated today that the money bal
been taken within a few days and prob
ably all at one time, except that A;;ent
Frink had cleared up all "BOiey pa-eels
in sight Saturday night prior to bis de
parture. "But," Mr. Campbell corlin
tinued, "the sum total would not warrant
Mr. Frink's absconding. I think ho was
very foolish, for he has friends who
would nave helped him out of his pre
dicament and got him on his feet again
if he had gone to them frankly."
From what could be learned from
Mr. Patterson's conversation, allu ugb
he was very reticent as to the amount of
defalcation, it is believed to be less then
11,000 or of il.M l at the outside.
There is no clue whatever to the miss
ing agent's whereabouts. He has not ap
peared in Chicago, where be said ho was
going on leaving Hock Island, and bis
family is at a loss to know where be ie.
He is probably making for the land of
Mr. Frink has been in Rock Islam I for
a year and had become regarded as one
of R.ck Island's most upright and con
servative business men. His domestic
relations as far as are known, were happy
and his wife ib as greatly shocked over
his disappearance as are our business
men. Route Agent Patterson bit upon
a very plausible tbeory today whim be
said: "I can't help but thinking thi- man

The Chicago papers are all giving con

ginator of the tri city consolidated sys
tem. The Pott of last evening contained
"Unless a majority of ths stockholders
should decide to reinstate me an over
whelming majority I must continue to
consider my connection with the City
Railway Companv as at an end," aaid
O. B. Holmes today.
Yesterday Mr. Holme penned bis rc
figoation of the office which be has held
for nine years and asked release from the
company which he has served for eighteen
years. In a few brief sentences be set
forth as bis purpose in so doing his sole
desire to bring about harmony. Fancy

Evening Pott called on Mr. Holmes today
"I was actuated, pun ly, to relinquish
my position as president, director and in
perintendent of tbe road," said be, "in
order that factions may not arise on my
account and that harmony may prevail.
i have many friends among tbe directors
and the stockholders, but I cannot, test
their loyalty to me while tbe interests of
tbe road may suffer. No, I have acted
and only await the result. It is for the
directors to acceptor ignore my resigns
tion. I cannot well remain with the road
harassed as I have been by my enemies.
and I do not covet the distinction of
holding my office when it is very clear
that in doing so I am causing friction
"What plans have you for tbe futureT'
''None whatever. Everything is
blank. Not since last May bave 1 bad
any official connection with the Los An

from all outside projects that I micht

this road. As president and snp?rinten
dent or this company I received a salary
of 15 000 a year and in addition to this
I have been drawing S 1.01)0 a month f T
seeing that the $3,000,000 which this com
pany invested in stock of this alley ele-

I resign boih positions. As to my sue
cessor In these offices I cannot even baz

beencnosen. My critics talk of my other
enterprises. Surely tbey must know that
I serve no other interest than that of this
road. Rock Island, St. Louis and Los
Angeles are mere names to me signifying
In concluding tbe interview Mr. Holmes
said that he was not over anxious to hold
on to bis office and if it was found desir
able to retain bim it would have to appear
that the wish was unanimous, or so nearly
unanimous that he might safely let pass
unnoticed the wish of tho minority.

ported that subscriptions are being taken

This debt amounts to $40,00(. Tbe re
port was made that tbe subscriptions now
reach $23,000. and consequently hopes
are entertained that tbe college will soon
be free from -incumbrance. It was de
elded to employ Misb Anna Westman, of

James Sherman, of Clifton, was telli
recently some queer thing about bei
has tbe makt acute sense of amell of aSif
animal that exists. In netting tbe traps
you must wait till low water, in order at
have tbe tide when it comes ia obi iter as,
all traces of your presence. When a btaisj
ia caught in a trap the other beavers a
once enable bim to make good btaaacapt
by seizing bim by tbe tail and hauling bim
away until tbey release bim, often leaving
the limb in the trap as an evidence of tb
struggle that ensued. He caught a beaver
once on I'uget Island, and says tbat it had
only two toes on a bind foot, tb other
three legs, being amputated aa cloa to tbe
body aa if tbe limba bad never existed.
Mr. Sherman says there is one faculty
the beaver possesses tbat won id be a prof
itahle and interesting atndy for arjentinr
men, aud that is tbe power of maklag ob
jects adhere to tbe bottom of a stream
without any apparent meant of secnrini:
them. The beaver lives mostly on wood
which it cuts and deposits on the bottom'
wiiere it remains, contrary to tbe natural
laws, which would in ordinary case canes
t be wood to rise to the surface. How tela
is accomplished it Is difficult to decide, bat
it is never! beless a fact, aa Mr. Sherman
a-anres ns that be tried it time and ti
strain. Itearrr trapping pay well where
any considerable number can be cangfat,
the average price of the fun being from
13.30 to S3 per pound. C'athlarnet Gasette.

I nerer see "Ouida s" name mentioaed
but it rectlla to me tbe cirrumaUince un
der which her work was first introduced
to tbe American public. I don't t hink tbe
story has ever been printed. It was Just
before the war tbat Mr. Lippincott, tb
Philadelphia publisher, saw in an Englieh
magnzine a serial story bearing tbe nom
de plume ot "Ouida." He was attracted
to it end determined to republish it. One
question, however, arose. Tbe story was
named "Held in Bondage; or, Granvillade
ViKue," and Mr. Lippincott feared that
the name wonid give tbe falsa impression
tbat the story was another of tb cany
works on American slavery that were then
flnoclinK tbe coontry.
He then-fore determined to revere the
title, and to bear bim out in this b ap
pealed to tbe writer. A long and pleasant
correHnd-nce took place between blr
