John MrKnight Arlxea From His Bed at
the St. James Hotel And Going to an Open
Window Leaps to the Ground Below-He
Afterward Kinds Himself- on the Sidewalk
In Scanty Attire, Though Not Seriously
Many stories have been told of the
feats thai have been performed by eorn
narubulists which often seem incredible,
but a performance occurred in Rock Isl
and on Saturday eight that borders on
the miraculous, when the results that
migbt have followed are considered.
A Vivid Dreamer,
John McKnight a man about 85 years
years o'd and employed about the street
cr company's power station is a viyid
dreamer and somewhat addicted to walk
ing in hi3 sleep. Though he had never
before ' done anything miraculous or
b range other than arising from his bed
in the d at k t f tho nlsbt and groping
about his ror as, he haB frequently hid
drecnia shit vrtie to fcim all but reality.
His dreams a' most invariably are the
worst when he gies to bed
with anytLing on his mind for
ios'ance if he wishes to ariso at a
a certain time. Kntw'.ng that he is ad
dicted to the straLge phenomenon to a
cc-r.ain extent, he usually takes precau
tion against any accident that might
occur by locking his door or putting
down a window ehould it be ud.
Went to Med About Midnight.
On Saturday night Mr. McKnight. who
boards at the St. James hotel, went
home and retired about 12 o'clock, but
before going to bed. however, he took
hi3 usual precaution of locking the door,
but as it w.s not very cool he concluded
to leave the window up. His work at
the power station is feeding the hoppers
from which the furnaces are fed and in
going from one aide to the other, instead
of walking down a step he usually jumps
out of a window that is not very
hiyh from the ground, to save
a walk. It is thought that the practice
weighed upon bis micd, and as he had
b:en working nights all summer, not
ge ling bis proper rest, his slei p when he
retired on Saturday nibt was probably
Jumped Out of the Window.
He could not have been in bed more
t&au two hours when be arose in his

on the east side of the building, end

he was used to doing when at work.
jumped out. He remembers notblcg
more about it than that he was dreaming
about bis work, not even being aroused
when he fell. How long be lay there
after falling be docs not of course know.
The first thing he remembers is of awak

oirtAwalk clad onlv in scanty rai
ment, acd benumbed with the
cold. When he discovered his

was unable to speak, and afterward

Kememlicretl Nothing About It.
After being tfeen inside he was qucs

that condition, but he seemed dazed and
one of the family thereupon went up to

wonder is that he was not - killed

nurnose of civincr the operating room a
more artistic appearance. Heretofore
the girls of an economical turn of mind
have made it a habit to wear their old
old party dresses while at work, and the
manager's aesthetic nature was cruelly
wrenched by the lack of harmony that
resulted. The 250 girls in the Central
office have donned the uniform, and as
the idea meets with success a general

is not true that there were any resigna

It must be admitted that there is often a
Btrong and apparently natural impulse

hasten the death of a sick comrade, which
in some cases takes the form of deliberate
and premeditated murder of the sufferer.

Rlng-InK s Street Car Bell.
A passenger in a Broadway car the other
day observed that the conductor invari
ably gave one pull on the bell cord to stop
the car and two pulls to start it. The
double signal struck tbe passenger as
being something new, and he inquired
about it. "Them'a the proper signals,"
said the conductor patronizingly. "One
bell to stop the car and two to start her.
'Tain't all the conductors that lives up to
'em. Most conductors only ring the bell
once, no matter whether it's to start or
stop the car. Of course where both the
conductor and the driver are old hands
and well acquainted one bell is enough to
start the car as well as to stop. 'Tain't so
