of ribbing William Schmelzer or iuo
Thnrsday night, had their preliminary
hearing before 'Squire LeClaire yesterday.
Hughes and Keys were defended by
Looaey & Kelly, of Rock Island, and
McC uirk, of this city, and L.M. Fisher
conducted the prosecution. There were
about a dozen witnesses and the exami
nation lasted from 11 a. m. to 4:80
o'clcck in the afternoon, and resulted in
Hughes being discharged and Keys being
held to the grand jury in the sum of
It was charged by the prosecution that
Hughes and Keys, after having seen
Schnelzer's rclt of money in Rock Island,
followed him to this citv, and dogged
him until an opportunity offered itself for
committing the robbery. Hughes ad
mitted coming across the river on the
ferry in company with Keys, but there
was ao evidence to show that he had been
with him after that.
Oc the other hand, there were several
witness who testified positively to
having seen Keys in company with
fcJchn elzer, both in Rock Island and in
sevctal saloons in this city. The evi
dence that held him. however, was given
by Mrs. Johanna Holm, who lives on
the corner of Second and Western ave
nue. She is a nurse, and when going
home Thursday night, passed -three men
on the corner opposite her home. When
acros the street she looked back and
saw one cf them holding another down.
She swore positively that Keys was one
of the men she passed on the corner, and
was the one she saw holding ecnmelzer
down on the s:uewalk. The other one
she couldn't iJentify. Mrs. Holm cave the
alarm to the police, and was the means
of getting them after the robbers. Dav

An employer recently advertised in a
Londc n paper for a clerk understanding
shorttand and the Remington type
writer, and having a knowledge of
Frenc'j and German. For these quali
fications he offered a salary of sixty
pounds par annum. He received the
following application: "lam forty-five
years of age, and was educated at Ox
ford university, where I matriculated in
1869, ling senior wrangler in 1871. I
write shorthand at the rate of 400 words
a minute, and can operate two type
writers at once. Should this latter ac
compl shment be of use in your office, I
would be pleased to Bupply the ma
chines. I speak all the European lan
guages fluently, am an expert account
ant, and would be prepared to work
eighteen hours a day. The salary you
men tic n is more than I have been re
ceiving, and I would accept less, as, liv
ing or. nuts and water, my expenses
are mc derate. I am a member of four
burial clubs, so that, in the event of my
deccasa while in your employ, you will

A Negro's Stratagem.
The real "befo de war" negro wit is
seldom seen now, but this incident will
show that he is not entirely gone. Sam,
a very lazy gardener, was landing over
S row c f peas iu a rather ehady corner
of the garden, and was well pleased at
his employer remaining indoors. But
when s -ie came to give some orders, in
spect the growing plants and put Sam
to real work he bethought himself of an
expedient to get rid of her. Sniffing the
air ane. looking around, he muttered,
'Sho'a you bawn, dar's er snake bin
Then, as she did not hear hhn, he re
peated iris remark. Gathering her Bkirts
bhe beat a hasty retreat, and from a safe
distance asked Mm how he knew there
was a s-iake around. "Oh, I smells 'em!
I kin aLus smell 'em when I cum where
dey's bin." This was enough for the
lady, and Bhe retreated to tho house.
Looking out from tho window of the
house she saw the old negro holding his
sides and laughing heartily at his own
shrewdness. His plan worked, and lie
had an i asy time of it the rest of that
day. Atlanta Constitution.
