" ' " T In many, if not in nl the States there arc laws provldhif penalties fer kidnaping, varying in aevcr'.ly from death to Imprisonment in the county Jail for one year. There Is general agreement In all the Stare that no crime Is more reprehensible than that of the person who steals a child from its parents and holds It for ransom un der threat of torture if the money de manded Is not paid. Other crimes against the person may be, and fre quently are, due to ungovernable pas sion ; but the stealing of children for such a purpose' Is a deliberate proce dure, planned to take advantage of the natural affection which parents have for their children. It Is In its essence a crime against nature, and deserved to be classed with all those unnatural deeds for which Ihe laws provide se vere penalties. Yet, as already Indi cated, there is one State, Idaho, In which the minimum penalty 1s only one year of Imprisonment In the county Jail. Tbe maximum Is ten years' im prisonment. In Pennsylvania, tbe scene of the most recent kidnaping case, the maximum penalty Is solitary Impris onment for life. In Ahibanifi, Dela ware and Illinois the courts have pow er to sentence kidnapers to death, par ticularly when the person kidnaped is held for ransom. Distinction Is made in the laws of some of the States be tween kidnaping children nnd adults, and Is'tween holding for ransom and for other purposes. Such distinctions are of course necessary to cover tho different degrees of the crime. The general tendency of recent ypars has been toward tho Infliction of Increas ingly heavy penalties upon stealers of children. No sooner had the news of the nbdtictlon of the Pennsylvania boy spread abroad thun bills were intro duced In the Legislatures of several States raising tho maximum penalty for the crime, and such a proposition was made In Congress to cover the Dis trict of Columbia and the Territories.

During JoffeHon's second term the Napoleonic wars led to a special ses sion which was convened Oct. 20, 1807. Both England and Trance had for many weary months Iwen assailing American commerce. Tho new Western nation, poor as It was, had no desire to engage In war with either of tho Fhiropean powers, though, as events afterward proved, tho evil dny was mere ly lielng held back by either tondllatory or mildly retaliatory measures, so far as England was concerned. When the English warship Leopard Drill upon tbe American frigate Chesapeake, Just outside Hampton Bonds, In June. 1S07, killing and wounding several Americans, men wore crape In honor of the dend and cried for war. The President was, himself, deeply Incensed, and at once dispatched a vessel to England to demand reparation and sum moned Congress to meet In special session Oct. 20, at which time he hoped to have an answer from England. This reply did not come until the second week in December. As it was not satisfactory, the brief but momentors presidential message sent to Congress concerning tho affair carried the fa mous embargo policy prohibiting American vessels from leaving for a foreign port under any condition. American sailors were to be protected by ladng kept safely in American harbors, while Prance and England were to be pun ished by being deprived of American goods. Ten years before 'this special session called to consider England's treatment of American sailors, John Adams had In tho first year of his administration called n special session of Congress to meet May 15, 171)7, for the purpose of supporting his policy to ward France. Madison Inherited tbe foreign troubles which bud exasjieratl the people during the time of Adams and Jefferson. His first special session of Congress, convened May 22, 1800, was called to consider foreign policies. The second, which convened May 24, 1813, and lasted until Aug. 2, had to provide additional wnys and means for financing the war with England. Van Buren hnd as his legacy' from tho Jackson administration almost as fearsome a load as foreign war u finunclal panic. At first Van Buren was de termined to face the storm without tbe presence of Congress, but on May o he issued a proclamation calling for an extra session to meet on the first Monday of September, 18.17, to consider "great and weighty mat I era." The 6tress of the times wns shown lu the tokens used as exchange. There were no cashiers' checks such as were used In the fall of 11K)7, but bits of paper were used Instead of money. March 17, 1841, William Henry Harrison Issued a call for n special ses sion of Congress to meet May 81. When It convened John Tyler, through Harrison's death, had succeeded to the presidency. In isr(i the regular ses sion of Congress closed Aug. 18. The Republican House had refused to pnss an appropriation bill for tbe urmy stntlonod In Kausaa without n stipulation that the soldiers would not tie used to enforce decrees of the pro-alavery Legislature of the Territory. President Pierce, at onee Issued a call for a special session to meet Aug. 21. It was in session one week, during which the House gave way and passed tho bill without stipulation. When President Lincoln act July 4, 1801, as the day on which the extra session of the Thirty-seventh Congress should convene many criticised his Judgment in Reletting a date so distant from tbe time of his Inauguration. It wa called to provide ways and means for carrying on the war. In thirty three days It passed sixty-one public and seven private bills and five Jofiit resolutions. Its measures called out 500,000 volunteers, appropriated $500, 000,000, provided for a navy, closed the ports of seceding States, defined con splracy against the government and provided the punlHhment, confiscated property used against the government end Increased duties under .the Mor rill tariff which Buchanan hnd signed shortly before the close of his term. No session of Congress ever settled more momentous Issues and no Con gress bus contained more noteworthy names. During the Hayes administration two extra sessions were called, both for tho purpose of passing appropriation bills which should hnve been enacted at the regular session. President Cleveland, confronted by a financial depres sion in 18itt, as was President Van Burn In 1837, was as reluctantly forced to call a extra sesalon to consider wnys and means of relieving the prevailing conditions. Convwied Aug. 7. 1893, this special session adjourned Nov. 3, after repealing the purchase clause of the silver act of 1800. The extra ses' slon of 1003 called by President Roosevelt helped to set In vogue the phrase reconstructive recess. VCagia44144'9 til Marvelous, Quaint and Curious. ; A ltaruileaa Eccentric.

After experience with every form of loco motion, Including cycle and motor racing, a voyage in a dirigible balloon of the French nrmy, and over 130 trips In nn ordinary bal loon, there Is nothing so fascinating or so ex bllarutlng as flying. Tbe happy moment, I may say, of my life came when Mr. Wright, with his pleasant voice and quiet smile, said to me: "Mr. Bolls, I guess I'll take you tin this morning." When nil was ready I took my seat on the flyer. The roar of the engines commenced, tfle starting weights were released, and off we went with a bound. Once clear of the ground, the feeling of securi ty was perfect. We tore along at forty miles an hour. The machine nt the will of the operator tilt up gracefully when taking a turn. Those accustomed to motor racing will appreciate the effect of this, which is that taking "n, curve on a Hying machine will be ac tually safer than lu an automobile.

' Thank to Fnmll Magic Bcnda, Mlchla Schllotik- Lived Lunyr. Mrs. Mlchla Schllotzky died recently at the Home of the Daughters of Jacob, at 302 East Broadway, at the age of 100 years, says tbe New York Sun. She came to New York from Aslashuf, In the state of Wllna, Russia, twenty-four years ago, und bad beeu at the home four years. The last year of her life she spent for the most part In the hospital of the home. About Christmas time, how ever, she attended an entertainment given by the home at the Grand Cen tral Palace, where she served as Judge of a onsotzosky, a dancing con test In which the dancers were men who had passed their hundredth year. Mrs. Schllotzky came of a long-lived family. She left nine brothers and sis ters lu Russia, the youngest of whom was 08 when he died. Her father and mother also lived long. The reason for this, they say at the home. Is simple. The family for more than 300 years has owned a string of nmber beads. Very common beads they are to look at, giving to the untrained eye no hint of their power. Always the eldest daughter of the house has worn the necklace, and while she wore It death was warded off. The beads were pos sessed of marvelous healing powers and circulated as freely among the children of the east side who had the whooping cough or the measles as gen eral ions ago they did between the huts of a Russian village. On Sunday, when her daughter. Mrs. Fannie Kowner of r3 East !!)lh street, visited the old wninau. the beads were given to her. "Take them." said the mother, "for it Is not well that I should bear them longer." Then she talked of the beads, which nover before had left her neck for more than twenty-four hours.

Instead of whirling all the time dizzily on tbe rim of life, we must take frequent times to get back to the cen ter again for our bearings back to the silent center whence we came. At that silent cen ter we find all our child faculties waiting to be recog nized and appropriated. Many cases of falling memory are mistaken ones, duo to unreasonable expectations! How many grown-ups forget as many times a day as any child does? Tho trouble la we expect, or try to compel ourselves to remem ber a great burden of inconsequent and Irrelevant things that the brightest child on earth could not remember; and we are so preoccupied trying to carry these things In mind that our minds are half-absent, at least, from the new things that are happening now and that ought to have our full attention, as they would have a child's full attention. The Nautilus. TO HAPPINESS. By Prof. Cesare Lombroso, Geniuses enjoy moments of supernal fe licity. These nre the moments of creative frenzy which In so many respects resemble the psychic excesses of epileptics only, since not nn ordlnnry brain Is being agitated by convulsions, but a great miud, and Instead of some atrocious bestiality or dark crime there results a work of lofty character. Beacons field wrote that he felt as If there were but a step from Intense mental concentration to madness. He said he could hardly describe what he felt In the moments when his sensations were abnormally acute and Inlense, that everything about hint seemed to be alive, that he seemed to be raving and was scarcely cer tain thnt be really existed. Analogous are he Impressions of St. Paul, Nietzsche and Dostojevskl. And the Illustrious Beethoven says: "Musical Inspiration is to me that mysterious state in which the whole world appears to shape Itself into a vast harmony where every feeling and every thought I have seems to resound within me, where all the forces of nature seem to become instruments for me, wliere my whole body is seized with violent shivering and my hair stands up on end." importing reindeer. She has herds of reindeer all jeady up in the northern regions. All that Is needed Is to train them, for they are very wild. "These Canadian reindeer are really caribou, but Canadians say they will do as well. The carlliou are plentiful throughout the Canadian north.. Of course our people will have to catch these animals and train them, but to a people who are building an empire that is a trifling matter. "The mosi active advocate of using reindeer or caribou in the development of northern Canada is Fred S. Law rence, who lives at Fort Vermilion, on the lower Peace River. He has made hla home in tho north for twenty-five-years. He suggests that a start might be made toward domesticating Cana dian reindeer by Inducing Laplanders to emigrate to Canada. The Lapland era, by reason of their pastures becom ing crowded, owing to the great num- ber of their reindeer, are looking for some part of the world to which they can transK)rt their herds and families and establish themselves anew. The reindeer is fleeter and can be more easily kept than the horse. A prosiwc tor could maintain himself for a year with ten bead of reindeer. If bis pro visions gave out be could eat the rein deer."
