THE AKGUS, "WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1893.
A Chicago Taper Keheames s Wlerd Tale
or lxc-al Interest
The Chicago Times rehearsed a
wierd tale the other day signed by
Archie Eggleston, who about 10 years
ago was a medical student, and for a
time hospital assistant t3 Dr. Pierce,
keeper of a private insane asylum at
Monticello. Iowa. One patient was
Jackson Uoynton. a young man of 23,
who hail been a telegraph operator
on the B., C. R. & X. and who in his
mania believed himself to be tele
graph superintendent for the road,
and was constantly sending messa
ges, upon the promptness ami cor
rectness of which depended many
lives. He would send train orders
for hours until the attendant could
divert his mind and lead him oil to
rest. From sleep after an hour or so
he would arise and perambulate the
room in a somnambulistic condition,
and thon would fall into a deep leth
argy. One night about 11 o'clock he
threw himself on the bed ami slept
for an hour, waking instantly and
completely. He came down the
room, his eyes fixed on vacancy.
"Hush!" he exclaimed in an awed
voice. "Do you hear the winds wail
ing over the hills? God be with you,
mother; it is the last, last struggle.
They are kneeling by your couch,
father, brother, and sisters, all there
but James and I, and life quivers
faintly on your lips. It flickers, it
is gone! Fold thy white hands over
the snowy robes, press down the
eyelids! Cover the face! Good-bye,
His chest heaved convulsively and
his form shook with emotion. "I
placed my hand gently on his arm to
turn him toward his bed, as 1 often
did in these fits of sonambulism. but
he put me aside instantly, "says Eg
gleson. "Listen! Do you hear that sum
mons? It is the' death signal, 23, for
the right of wire! Wait till I catch
He walked to the wire, dropped in
to a seat, and, grasping a pencil, be
gan to copy, with his ear turned
slightly toward the window and an
intent look on his face, as if he was
actually taking a message. I looked
over his shoulder and read the fid
lowing: James Bovuton, Rock Island. 111.,
Your mother died toniirht of heart
failure. Come. Li:Rov Uoynton.
He changed the position of his pen
eil and imitated the clicking of a tel
egraph instrument, as if sending a
reply, and then fell back exhausted.
F.ggieson rubbed his hands, bathed
his face, and administered stimulants
till he aroused, when lie called tor a
delivery boy ami urged F.ggleson to
forward the message to Ins brother
A Str.ui:e State of Ad'airs.
F.ggleson told the mad man. to
pacify him. that he would send it.
He put it in lus pocket, and was re
lieved by another attendant. An
hour later this second attendant wa
knoeked down by liovnton, who
made his escape. F.ggleson went at
once to the depot, and found that
Uoynton had already taken a train
for Fayette, Iowa. He followed
him thither on the next train.
The agent there said Mrs.
Bovnton had died very sudden
ly the previous day of heart trouble:
that he had sent a message to her
son in Roek Island, that he had ar
rived on the last train, and had bor
rowed a lantern and started for the
cemetery. The message was .read to
the astonished F.ggleson, and it was
an exact duplicate of the one he had
in his pocket. The man whom the
Favette agent had taken for James
liovnton from Rock Island, was the
insane man from Monticello. His
mother's body had been laid in the
vault at tiie cemetery pending fuller
funeral services later. Eggleson and
others went to the cemetery, where
they found that the insane man had
broken open the vault and tasket,
ha 1 taken the remains of his mother
in his arms. Soon the woman showed
faint signs of life; liquor was forced
into her mouth and she began to
breathe. Her son gathered her in
his arms and made a wild rush with
her, till he reached the Bovnton
home, where he kicked open the
door, and laid his mother on a bed.
Then he sank exhausted, first having
heard her utter his name. She re
covered. Her son remained uncon
scious for 21 days, then awakened in
his right mind. His mother nursed
him back to health.
The F. Weycrhauser went up with
a barge in tow.
The Verne Swain was in and out
on her regular trip iu the short trade.
The temperature on the Rocklsl
and bridge at noon was3: the stage
of water got down .00.
A strange little craft touched at
the levee here on the way down to
Alton. It was the Mary Reed, of
Hastings, Minn., designed, built and
owned by William B. Reed. She is
of the catamaran pattern, that is. she
has two hulls, giving her a double
bow and a double stern. She is 34
feet long and seven feet beam, and is
moved by two profilers. The boiler
and engine are placed forward, while
aft is a pleasant little cabin, equipped
with bunks that can be folded up like
those in a sleeping car. The boat is
as neat and clean as the proverbial
new pin. On board are W illiam Vf.
Reed and wife, A. I. Reed and wife, c
and Charles A. Reed, all of Hastings.
They are on their way to Chicago by
way of the Illinois river. They will
return by the same route, unless the
World's fair proves an attraction to
hold them too late in the season, in
which event the boat will be shipped
back bv rail.
John Desellc Arrested for Rein? Light
John De Selle is once more in the
clutches of the law. John is too
strong to work, it seems, else he has
a mania for making "live fingers and
a grab" at every thing he sees. The
charge is pieferrcd by Mr. Allers of
the Twin-city restaurant near the
Rock Island depot. Having entered
the place, Deselle proceeded to fake
everything in sight; he went into
the cash drawer and snatched a wal
let, but it was empty. Some of the
women of the house made an outcry
and Deselle was pursued as far as"
Twenty-sixth street and Fifth ave
nue, where, after the tail of his coat
was torn off, he was captured and
turned over to the police. It is only
about two weeks ago John was tried
for larceny, and let go.

was that Biteller's dinner and acces

Yeft, Such a It Is
Col. B. F. Marsh seems to have
said more in eongress already than
B. T. Cable said in his entire term,
and The Aur.i s does not like that at
all. Morning Union.
The Akgi's does not stand alone
when it fails to relish such gibberish
as the congressman from this dis
trict was guilty of last Friday. It
carries out the sentiment of every
self-respecting citizen in the district
when it acknowledges the disgrace
of having such a representative in
the halls of congress. Mr. Cable as
a congressman, as a citizen, is not
given to making himself conspicuous
unnecessarily, but his voice and in
fluence count when he sees lit to use
them, and it is in view of this fact
that the people of his old dis
trict appreciate all the more now
the golden value of discretion. If
Col. Marsh's services arc to be reck
oned by what he says, as the Union
evidently measures him, merciful
heavens defend his constituents from
the responsibility of his acts.
The colonel made an ass of himself
last Friday, and was the laughing
stock of the house, and the people of
the old Eleventh district ought to
feel as indeed they do like bowing
their heads in shame rather than to
laud him for "talking," as is the
i. A. It. National Encampment.
