Chicago has anotlicr first-class sensa

liish physician, lms supposedly heen
murdered and his remains conveyed In
n trunk to a suburb and there somehow
ilispocd of. Dr. Crouln was, stmo
years ago, well-known In St. Louis as a
Miner at public entertainments, and,
later, In Chicago, hecaino prominent
among the class known as "professional
hislihicn," though ho attended to busi
ness and had good standing as a phy
sician. He was an extremist, nnd, as
the Irish party in Chicago as elsewhere
is, of course, divided into factions, ho
had enemies among those of his own
mu Tlio theory is that ho was killed

though tlio only giound for this theory
Is that he had been known to dcc)aro
his life In danger.

something on hlsmind that did not solve
itself icnillly and the lines on his brow
showed by their deepening that he wns,

slipped his memory. At length, nfter n
mental strugglo of an hour, thu Informa

self from tho man who wns talking to

Among tho many office-seekers who

talked of for tho Presidency. A third
gave up u lucrative law practice In a
Western State somo six or eight vcars
ago to enter politics. Ho carried his
distiict forCongrcs-s and wns twice re
elected. To maintain himself politi
cally in his district and to cut the
social figure which he nnd his family
thought indfspensnblo here in tho Capi
tal, he spent while In Congress over
nnd nbovo his salary the Sum of (45,
000, or nil he had in the world. He is
now without properly or income and nn
aspirant for a $2,500 jqb, with no cer
tainty of getting it. Ex-Gov-crnor

Probably tho highest price ever paid
for a book was .10,000, given by the
German Government for a missal form
erly given by Pope Led X. to King
Henry VIII, of Englnnd, along with a
parchment con fen Ing on that sovereign
the right of assuming tho title of "De
fender of the Faith," borne ever slnco
by English kings. It was sold at auc
tion somo years ago, Tho book which
secured tho highest offer was a Hebrew
Bible in the possession of the Vatican.
In 1512 the Jews of Vcnlco proposed to
Pope Julius II. to buy the Bible and to
pay for it its weight in gold. It wa
so heavy that It required two men to
carry it. Indeed, it weighed 33-"S pounds,
thus lcprcscnting the value of half a
million of francs (20,000). Though
being much pressed for money in order
to keep up the "Holy League" against
King Louis XII. of France, Julius II.
declined to part with tho volume.

or two of poetry calculated to mako his
gift more clfcctivc, Tlio same corre
spondent adds that Mr. Richard Henry
Stoddard's magazine papers reminiscent
of famous authors do not find favor in
every quarter, apparently. Here Is a
delicate little comment by n Western
nancr on Mr. Sloddnid's article on Poo:
"Stoddard delights In this devilish sort
of grave work; when he conies out he
smells moist and moldy, ax of tho sep
ulchre." Julian Ilawthorno Is to re
ceive $2,000, says a correspondent, for

poems, Is about to 'establish a literary
sales bureau in Chicago. Thu Boston

Major Henry T. Stnnton, of the In
terior. Department, known nlso as the
poet-laureate of Kentucky, u title which
lie disclaims, who has written some
of the daintiest poems in the language,
has essayed tho novel, and his first
eltoit in that direction attaining to the
dignity of a bound volume, was
placed on sale by W. II, Morrison, the
F street bookseller, last Saturday and
one hundred copies were sold during
tho afternoon. Tho novel bears tho
title "Social Fetters," and tho
scene is laid In Baltimore and In Vir
ginia in the time before tlio war. It is
a story with the plot predominant
nnd is not of the analytic stylo of
the Bostoncsc modern novel. It la not
diffusive, in treatment, the Interest Do
ing concentrated at all times, so that
tho reader docsn'fput the book down
until hu has finished it, nor does he go
to sleep over It, It bears few marks of
the amateur, ond whllo possibly not a
classic, Is such a story as will bo very
generally- read nnd certainly will bo
thoroughly enjoyed. It is short, only
100 pages, hut ft Is coinplcto, and, as
tho small boy lemnrked of the plo, "It
tastes like more," Bound In paper tho

"Alaska Is a country of paradoxes,"
said Mr. Cpla F. Fowler, lato of tho
Alaska Fur aud Commercial Company,
In answer to the question of a Vre-M ic
porter respecting his late field of opera
tions. Mr, Fowler1 Is stopping tem
porarily in this city wltli friends. Ho
is en route to his home near Boston,
which ho left twclvo years ago to enter
the employ of the Alaska Fur nnd Com
mercial Company,
"During your twelve years' rcsldcnco
in Alaska what was the most wonder
fill thing vou ever saw or heard
there?"
Mr. Fowler smiled at this question,
and nfter n moment's hesitation said:
"Two years ngo' lnsl summer 1 loft
Kodlac for a -trip to tlio head waters of
the Snake Illvcr, where our traveling
agents had established a trading station
at an Innnlt village. Tlio chief of this
faniily of Innults was named To-lce-tl-ma,
and to him I was well recom
mended, He received mo hospitably,
and 1 nt onco began negotiations for the
purchnso of a big lot of fossil Ivory
which his tribe hnd cached near tho
village. The lot weighed several thou
sand pounds, nnd was composed of tho
principnl nnd inferior tusks of the mam
moth, the icmalns of thousands of
whieh glgnntlo animals nrc to he found
in tlio ucus oi interior Ainsxan water
courses. I subjected the Ivory to a
rigid Inspection, nud upon two of the
largest tusks l tuscovercu iresn uioou
traces and the remnants of partly de
composed flesh.
"1 questioned To-lee tl-mn, nnd ha
assured me that less than three months
before n party of his young men had
encountered a drove of monsters about
llfty miles above wheio ho was then en
camped, and had succeeded in killing
two, an old bull nml a cow. At my
request he sent for the leader of the
hunting party, a young nud very intel
ligent Indian, and 1 questioned him
very closely about his advcntuic among
n race of animals that, tho sclcntlllc peo
ple claim nru extinct. He told a very
slraightfoiward story, nnd 1 have no
reason to doubt lis truth,
"Ho Hnd his baud were searching
along a dry water course for Ivory anil
had found n considerable quantity. One
of tlio bucks, who wns in advance,
msliod In upon the main body one
morning wltli the startling intelligence
that nt a spring of water about a mile
above where they then wero ho had
discovered tho 'sign' of several of the
'big teeth.' They had come down to
the spring to drink from a lofty plateau
farther Inland, and had evidently fed In
the vicinity of the water fqr somo time.
The chief immediately called nbout
him his warilois, and the party, under
the leadership of the scout, approached
tho stream.
"They had nearly reached It when
their earn wero suddenly saluted by a
chorus of loud, shrill, trumpet-like calls,
and nn enormous creature cainc crash,
Ing toward them through the thicket,
tho ground fairly trembling beneath Its
ponderous footfalls. With wild cries
of terror and dismay the Indians lied:
nil but the chief and tho scout who had
first discovered tho trail of the monsters.
They were armed wltli large calibre
muskets and stood their ground, open
ing fire on the mammoth. A bullet
must hnvc penetrated the creature's
brain, for it staggered forward and fell
dead, add subsequently on tholr way
back to their camp ground they over
hauled and killed a cow 'blg-tcetli,'
which was evidently tho mate of tho
first one killed.
"I asked tho hunter to descrlbo the
monster, nnd, taking a shasp stick, he
drew me a picture of tho male animal
in the soft clay. According to his de
scription It wns at least twenty feet In
hcleht and thiity feet in length. In
general Hhapc it was not unlike an ele
phant, hut its cars wero smaller, Its
eyes bigger and Its trunk longer and
more slender. Its tusks wero yellowish
white in color and six in number. Four
of these tusks wero placed like thoso of
a boar, ono on cither side in each jaw;
they were nbout four feet long and
came to a sharp polhi. Tho other two
tusks he broujjht nwny.
"I measured them and they were over
fifteen feet In length and weighed up
ward of 250 pounds each. They grad
ually tapered to a sharp point nnd
eurved inward, Tho monster's body
was covered wltli long, conrso hair of a
reddish 'dun color, I took a copy of
the rude sketch made by tho Indian
and vou nre welcoino to It for reproduc
tion in tho Press.
"By'the way, our late Governor, the
Hon. Alfied P. Swincford, has pretty
carefully investigated tlio matter nnd he
is certain, from a thorough sifting of
native testimony, that large herds of
theso monsters nre to be found on the
high plateaus In interior Alaska, about
tho headwaters of tho Snako River.

You would scarcely expect n rosy
breath of human sentiment nnd of
springtide romance to find its way into
thn grim old Treasury building, hut no
ofllclal there is so forbidding or so old
that he can shut out and lose Inter
est In affairs of tlio" heart, If ho Is
properly approached. Friday Mr.
Bates, who is prlvato secretary to Sena
tor McMillin of Michigan, stepped
briskly Into the Treasury Department
and walked into the ofllce of Mr.

friend of his in Detroit wanted a posi
tion in the custom-house there. "He
Is competent, a good Republican nnd
splendidly indorsed," said Mr. Bates,
"His application has been on file for
six weeks, and I want him appointed
to-day, if possible." The First Assist-
ant Secretary rofcrrcd Mr. Bates
to the Second Assistant nnd the Socond
Assistant referred him bade to the First.
Bates got tired of that shuttle-cock
treatment and determined to go to Sec
rctaiy Windom. After waiting half nn
hour on him ho got to the Secretory and
stated his case. "I will tell you ,why I
want this youngmnn appointed to-day,"
said Bates, "Ho Is to bo married to
