The world bas been edified by the ac
count of another transatlantic race
which bas just terminated in New York
harbor. The competing vessels were
the Aurania, belonging to the Cunard
8teamhip company, and the Alaska of
the Guion line. The race from a sport
ing standpoint was a very pretty one and
began a week ago Sunday, when the
Alaska steamed out of Cork a little less
than an hour ahead of the Aurania
Whether the race had previously been
irracged with the agreement that the
Alaska was to have this advantage or
whether it was an impromptu affair and
originated in the ambition of the Cunard
to overtake and pass its rival is not
8'ated, but before dawn on the following
morning the Aurania had almost over
taken the Alaska, and before noon was
several miles ahead of her. This lead
was held until the following Friday,
when the Alaska plied her furnaces with
such good effect that the two ocean
steeds were once more neck and neck, as
it were, and there was lively business in
pool Belling on both vessels. First one
and then the other lead until Saturday
evening, when the firemen of the Au
rania by most desperate efforts, succeed
ed in sending ber past Sandy Hook light
bouse one minute ahead of the Alaska.
All this makes very interesting read
ing, and similar testa of speed will prob
ably go on until one of these vessels
turns its course skyward in tedious.
Then it is to be hoped, as the Chicago
Post says, vessel owners will see the ad
vantage of directing their money and
their energies into some safer channel.
CATCHING- A ROBBER.
HOW AN EMPTY BARREL SERVED A
The Story of an Avaricious Cncle, Seventy-five
Thoouad In Gold and av Small
Boy Who Got the Itest of at Daring
Copyright, 1802. by Charles B. Lewis.
My Uncle Ben was n sinjrular man so
lingular that in this day and age every
body would have called him a crank of the
first gTaie. In the first place, he never
married; in the next, he built himself a
house which went by the name of '"the
jail;" again, he sold a lot of land for f75,0u0
and kept every dollar of the money in the
house for years; lastly, I was the only rela
tive or other person he would admit to the
house or trust with a !oilar.
I went to live with Uncle Ben when I
was fifteen yt-.trs old. lie was then a man
of sixty and not over well. I don't know
how he and father fixed it tip, Imt I went
to "the jail" as a sort of assistant to the
old man. 1- don't know but I was also a
companion, though there were days at a
time when he did not speak to me. He
lived in the oil district of Pennsylvania,
and the land he sold went to men in the oil
business. Mostly with his own hands Uncle
B n built the solid stone house in which he
kept the treasure. It was a one story
house, with walls over two feet thick.
There were iron bars and iron shutters to
the three or four windows, an iron door
front and back, and the roof was of boiler
plate. There was only one room in the
house. This was parlor, liedrooin, dining
room and kitchen combined. The furniture
was of the plainest, as were also our meals.
There was a back yard about a hundred
feet square, and this was surrounded by a
board fence sixteen feet high. There was
also an iron door in the fence.
The house was two miles from a store,
and one reason Uncle Ben wanted me was
to run back anil forth. He had tleter
mined never to leave the house by itself,
though no ang of burplars could have
effected an entrance by work in r ail day.
The money was all in fjold, and kept in a
new oil barrel in a corner of the room.
During my first six months the old man
was never away. During the next six he
made two trips to the store. If one of us
went into the back yard, the iron door was
shut and fastened, and it was not opened
a train, except we pave a certain signal,
e were worse off than convicts. Only
one window was opened at a time, and we
simply sat there and killed time as best
we mitrht. We had no lnaiks orpapers, no
pames, only now and then a conversation.
Uncle Ben expected to be attacked every
hour, but no one could prevail upon him
to put his money in the bank.
One day, when I had been at "the jail"'
over a year, someone shoved a letter under
the door. Itwas for Uncle Hen. It pur
ported to be from a man who wanted to
buy a piece f land, anl who offered such
a big price for it that uncle decided to go
to the town, six miles away, and deal with
him. The would le buyer fixed an inter
view for B o'clock in the eveninir. It was
now November, and it would be dark at
that hour. Uncle lien didn't like the idea
of returning on ftt after that hour, as it
was a rout'li and unsettled country, but
he finally decided to ri.-k it. lie left "the
jail" at half past 4. but not until he had
cautioned m- over and over apain. I was
not to open d-jor or window except at his
signal, which was five raps repeated three
times. The only weapons we bad were
two clubs which he had cut in the forest.
He was too stingy to buy firearms.
As soon as the old man had gone I upset
the barrel of gold on the floor and sat down
to count it. lie had several times allowed
me to count out .",.fxj, but always ended
up by declaring that the rubbing of the
coins was causing him too great a loss. I
can tell you that the sum of $7.,"J in yel
low gold pieces five, tens and twenties is
a sight to interest people a great deal o'der
than I was, and it wasn't five minutes le-
fore I had forgotten all else. I think I had
counted out eleven piies of f l.OOOeach when
I heard I nele Ben s signal. W e had no
clock, but It seemed to me that he had not
had time to go and return. I made all
haste to scocp the gold into the barrel, but
leforc this was accomplished the signal
had lx'en repeated several times. Know
ing how annoyed uncle would be, I took
down the bar and shot back the lKlts as
rapidly as possible. As the door opened a
strange man walked in, and his first move
was to turn around and make things se
cure. 1 had retreated to tne other end or
the room, and all the light we had was a
single candle. The man was so cool and
quiet that I was surprised instead of being
frightened. hen he turned to me, how
ever, my heart jumped into my month.
He was a tall, solid fellow, with a dark
skin and coal black eyes and hair. I knew
little of men at that time, but instinct
warned me that this man was a villain.
lie looked all around the room, as if tak
ing in even the most trifling objects, and
by and by he advanced to within three feet
of me and said:
"Bov, set out everything good to eat
you've got in the house!"
W e had some cold pork, part of a plate
of beans anil some Indian bread, and I hus
tled the stuff onto the table.
"No coffee or tea?"' he gruffly demanded.
"Don't you lie to me, you young wolf!
The old man always keeps whisky. Bring
me the jug."
Uncle Ben was not a drinking man, but
always kept a little whisk y as a medicine.
There was atwmt a pint in the jug, and the
man poured it out into a basin and drank
most of it before he ate a mouthful. Then
he fell to and cleared off t he table. When
the last crut-ib had been eaten he pulled
out a pipe and filled and lighted it and
said to me:
"If you lie to me I'll skin you alive!
Where does the old man keep his money?"
I pointed to the barrel, and he walked
over to it and uttered a shout of surprise
and delight. To make things plain to you,
I want to relate what had happened to my
uncle. Four men, three of whom were
strangers to that locality, had formed a
plot to rob him. They had taken posses
sion of an old shanty in the woods a mile
away, und one of them had written the
letter as a decoy. As he came along on his
way to town he was seized and taken to
the shanty. B3- threats of torture they
tnade him reveal the signal. One was left
to guard him, while one came ou to the
house, and the other two started off to get
a horse and wagon which they had in the
town. They knew the money was in gold
and they were to carry it off in the wagon.
The robber who had come to the house was
in no hurry, as he could do nothing with
out the others. He upset the barrel just
as I had done, aud then sat down and
gloated over the heap of coin. It was a
sight calculated to make him good Ba
tumi, and pretty soon a smile covered his
face and his tones softened up as he said:
'That's a grand sight, boy a grand
sight! Just think of what that heap of
gold will buy! I'll never hare to work an
other day aa long as I liver'
"But it belongs to Uncle Ben, sir!" I pro
tested, having now but. little fear of th
"Ba'll never see a piece of it again!" he
chuckled. "He may count himself lucky
to get off with his life. What an old fool
he is to keep a fortune in his house! I ex
pect I'd have been forced to kill him if he
had been home."
"If he had been home you wouldn't have
got in," I replied.
"Maybe not. Pretty cute old chap, they
say. Bring me the rest of that whisky."
I handed it to him and be drank it alL
It was good liquor, and the quantity and
quality had the effect to soften him up.
Few boys of my age are heroic. I was very
much frightened at first, but as he. grew
good natured I gradually recovered my
nerve, and by and by I found myself won
dering how I could save Uncle Ben's money.
I had forgotten to tell you that the man
had a knife and a revolver. When he sat
down to the table he placed both ou the
board, calculating that the sight would
have its due effect. hen he arose he put
both away again, having a scabbard for the
knife and a holster for the pistol. He had
no cause to worry about me, knowinu that
he could break niv lxn-s in his grip. I won
dervd greatly how he could take matters sc
coolly, having no suspicion of what had hrtp
pencd to the f id man, and I can truthfully
say that I legan to make plans. As the
liquor aflected his brain he greiv jolly and
began to sing. I could now have mde my
escape by way of the back door had I so
wished, but I was thinking beyond that.
There was reason to lK-iievethat the liquor
.vouId finally overcome him, ami I would
wait fcr that period and tie him hand and
For the space of half an hour the robber
was joiiy tight. Then he began to solver
up and resume his former demeanor. He
ordered me to pull the straw ticks off the
beds and empty them, and then to divide
the gold into two portions and tie each
portion in a tick. He sat looking at me
while I worked. When the bundles were
made up to his satisfaction he ordered me
to drag them to the front door. Drag is
the proper word, as it was all I could do to
move one along the floor. As I was re
turning for the second portion the man
rose up and looked into the barrel and
shook it. A single coin had been left iu
there, and as it rattled about he bent over
to feel for it. As I told you before, it was
a new barrel, stout and thick. I no sooner
caught sight of him with head and shoul
ders and Inith arms in the barrel, and his
left foot off the floor, than mv line of action
came tome with the swiftnessof lightning.
I sprang forward and seized his right leg
and exerted all my strength, and it was
sufficient to land him in the barrel. His
head went to the bottom, while his feet
stuck up in the air, anil no roblnr was ever
in a worse Imx. His struggles would have
upset the barrel had I not Iieen there to
prevent. He kicked f urioualy, but his feet
had only a limited play and I had no trou
ble in avoiding them. I own that I was
badly rattled, knowingthat he would mnr
der me if he got lij:-e, but still I had no
thoughts of giving up. In our struggles
we moved the barrel ail overt!. e room, but
I managed to keep it on nd ail the time.
What I feared for the first five minutes
was that the robber would wt hold of his
pistol and fire at my legs throimh the bar
rel. but as we struggled around I saw that
the weapon was jammed fast against the
side of the barrel with the butt toward me.
It couldn't have' l en over ten minutes be
fore the man lieeame perfectly quiet, over
come by the rush of blond to his head. I
slewed the barrel against the foot of uncle's
ledstead, got down the clothesline from
its peg and five minutes later I had man
and barrel and bedstead so firmly lashed
together that I no longer felt any fear. The
work had only been accomplished when I
heard Uncle Ben's signal at the door. I
had learned caution, as you may suppose,
and I called to know who was there. As
no answer was made I refused to open. The
signal was repeated again and aain, and
when I kept silence the parties finally be
trayed themselves. They were the two
men with the horse and wagon.
"John! John! Are you in there?" shout
ed one as he pounded on the diwr.
"He must be!" I heard the other observe.
"Then why doesn't he hear us and open
the door? If he didn't succeed in fooling
the boy and getting in he'd be around here
somewhere of course. It'stry him again."
He pounded on the door with a stone and
made noise enough to awaken the dead,
but I still remained quiet.
"Look here. Bill," said the fellow as he
ceased his efforts, "John has played us a
scurvy trick. He's got the gold and lit
"If he has we'll hunt him to his death.
If he got in, how happens the door to be
"Dunno, but there's something wrong
somewhere. Iet's bust the cussed thing
off its hinges."
The two flung themselves against the
door with full force, but it was too strong
for them. Then they hunted around for a
log to use as a battering ram, but could
find nothing in the darkness. Finally,
puzzled what to make of the situation,
they called out to me:
"Boy! boy! Open the door. If you do,
we promise not to hurt you. If we have
to blow it down with a torpedo, we'll kill
you for sure!"
I felt that silence was my strongest
weapon, and so it proved. Aftr awhile
they liecanie alarmed and made off and I
heard nothing more from them. All this
time I had kept an eye on the man in the
barrel, but he had not moved or cried out.
It was about midnight when the two men
left. They went back to the shanty, held
a whispered consultation with the seiatry
and after a few minutes the trio rode off
toward town. Uncle Ben was bound ami
gagged, and as soon as be was alone he be
gan the work of freeing himself. This he
accomplished after awhile, and believing
that he had Ih-cu robbed he also made for
town to report his loss. Three officers
started for home with him, and it was day
light when they arrived. When the lash
ings were cast off and my prisoner was
pulled out of the barrel he was dead and
stiff. He probably died within the first half
hour. In the fingers of his right hand was
clutched a ten dollar gold piece the coin
which had lured him to his death. No one
could identify the man, nor was either of
the others ever arrested. Everybody called
me a brave, cool headed lad, and plenty of
people came to look at me and pat me on
the back, but I didn't deserve a word of
praise. I simply acted on impulse, and I
was scared half to death most of the time.
to me on the right was shot through the
center of the forehead. We were kneeling.
He bad his gun to his face and had fired the
shot and cried out, "My God, I'm hit!" be
fore he fell over on ms side. hue we
were forming battle line in the streets of
Fredericksburg a rifled shell exploded in
the ranks about twenty feet away. One
man was blown to fragments so com
pletely wiped off the face of the earth that
not a finger of him was to be found. The
shell probably exploded just as it hit him.
The man on his right had a leg and an
arm blown oft aud was flung ten feet
away, yet he was living and trying to
speak half a minute later. The one on his
left was cut in two above the hips and one
of his arms blown over the heads of the
second line just forming. This man's eyes
did not close for twenty seconds.
At Spottsylvania a sergeant on my right
was shot through the heart as the lines
were advancing. The lxxly was afterward
examined by the surgeon, and he said the
bullet had passed through the heart. The
man advanced at least four steps after le
ing hit. and then clutched at a sapling and
said, "Keep right on; I've been hit!" He
must have lived fully thirty seconds after
receiving the shot. In the cemetery at
Gettysburg three of us were lying down
behind a monument which had toppled
over, and were using it as a. breastwork.
The man on the left was struck by some
missile, probably a fragment of shell,
which uncovered the whole top of his
head. He laid his guu aside, stood up at
full height and then shrieked out and fell
backward. As we turned to hi in he raised
his right arm. and his lips moved as if he
were trving to "ive us some message.
A ew Superstition.
It is impossible to invent a new religion.
A new combination of old doctrines is all
that is left to the innovator. It is barely
possible, however, to invent a new super
stition or a new manifestation of an old
one, and Dr. Jacques, of Montreal, has
He is a widower and a graduate of the
Victoria School of Medicine, and has or
ganized a little community of which t be
menvlwrs sleep in their coffins. "I made a
bargain with the good God," he says, "the
year the smallpox raged in Montreal. I
visited 1.2)0 cases, and in return God fa
vored the mission I have in hand, viz., the
adoration of the 'Holy Face.' "
There are but five sisters in the com
mune, and the reporter of a local paper
was allowed to see them as they pass the
night. The five sisters were found robed
in red material, with a white headdress
falling down over their shoulders. These
girls have no education whatever, yet their
medical protector says they are very
lea rned in things pertaining to the celestial
sphere. They retire at 8:30 and rise at 4,
and although all work for the house the
greater part of the day is spent in adora
tion and prayer. By the side of a nicely
decorated altar stands a post about six feet
in height, anil upon the latter hangs au
ox chain ten feet long, the use of which
was explained as follows by the doctor:
"When Montreal is given over to car
nivals, to bails and parties this heavy
chain is hung around each sister's neck for
an hour at a time, while I hey kneel in
prayer fur their sisters of the world,
whom destiny h;is thrown in temptiilhm'E
The doctor drew aside a curtain, and a
large deep coffin, painted black and cov
ered with gray cotton, was revealed. The
pillow is made of wood, and not a single
article of clothing is visible.
There are very plainly furnished cells
for the rest of the little community, and
the dctor is in a state of childish satisfac
tion over his scheme. He declares that
wonderful miracles have been performed
"in fact everything has been done but
bringing the dead to life again."
