GRINDER FATHER THOUGHT INSANE ACTED VERY QUEERLY UPON HIS ARRIVAL SUN STROKE RES PONSIBLE PERHAPS FOR HIS PRESENT CONDITION. Ft.. Wayne, Aug., 4. ( Spl. Late yesterday a man and a .small hoy came staggering in'o the police sta tion, and asked how to got to the homo of a. relative here. The man was Andrew Gallagher, and the boy was his Ron. Charles, aged 11 years. There scorns to have heen a streak of hard luck. Thev started here from Cincinnati some flays ago, on foot. Thfjv walked in the hot. sun all the way from Cincinnati to Richmond, In diana, and th-To they took the train for Fort Wayne. The case is one that puzzles the police, for the man is suffering from from temporary in sanity, of a mild kind, and he does not serni to he aide to give the authorities any information. The hoy does not know enough to give any satisfaction. Ho told the story of the terrible walk through the scorching heat, and it was probably this walk that caused his lather to become mentally unbalanc ed. Mr. Gallagher is the son-I"-Iaw of David Lewis, who lives north of tlv Indiana School for Feeble Minded Youth. Mr. Lewis was notified of the plight of Mr. Gallagher and the boy, and lie has taken the boy to his home and will take care of him until it has been decided what will be done. An investigation is being made by the police to discover why Gallagher start ed on such a trip. It is the opinion of some that the man was insane be fore he left Cincinnati, and that ho never would have undertaken the journey on foot if ho had been in his right mind. He is being cared for temporarily in the hospital ward of the county jail. F MRS.

AGED MAN'S TROUBLES LANDS HERE PENNILESS Pole on Way from Cincinnati to Chi cago Observes the Truth of Ancient Maxim that a "Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed." Herd by years, absolutely penniless and scarcely unable to make himself understood, a Pole, named Tryfinski, landed in Richmond yesterday morn ing from Cincinnati in a pitiable jdight. He was well dressed, and well groomed, and did not appear to he a man accustomed to hardships. About the depot he tried to make nu morons perrons understand his trou bles without avail, his Polish tongue being mystical to all those who heard. The old man finally wandered into the Jones Hardware store where it was discovered that he could speak German to some extent and after re peated efforts some knowledge of his condition was learned. Tryfinski said ho was 7 years old and was on his way to Chicago, where his family had preceded him from Cincinnati. He was unable to intelligently explain just why he had hron abandoned by his near relatives ar.d it was not clear whether he really had been abandon ed or whether through accident he had become separate;!. A puise was made up and enough' money raised to send the aged Pole to Chicago and he left last night. Watermclorisonlce Guaranteed ripe and swet. Order a half melon off thence.

Jack Lannan, and his ehost will come to haunt you." Then Hannan broke down and made a full confession, saying he was j'la 1 to get it off his mind. Hannan owns a valuable collie, and the search of the dog for its master first aroused the suspicions of the police, and they fol lowed the animal to Hannan's tent and disarmed him before he could make a successful resistance.

Hannan repeated his confession he fore Judge Jordan, of the Circuit Court, and he was removed to Crown point without bail to await the action if the September grand jury. Louis okinnenberger and Louis Custer, un der arrest as accomplices in the kill ing of Lannan, were released from custody.

EVIDENCE OF BAD "BULL" IF THERE WAS ERROR THE PENN SYLVANIA WAS NOT SLOW TO SEE CHANCE TO RECOVER ITS GROUND. The Pennsylvania Railroad compa ny, taking advantage of conditions that exist, and believing that it has a just claim thereto, has not only fenc ed in that portion of North 14th street which it claims belongs to it, but it has occupied it in a manner which in dicates that it will take something more than persuasion to 1rce it to give up. Within the past forty-eight hours the Pennsylvania company has ex tended the piece of sidetrack which extended along the south property line of Dille & McGuire's lawn mower plant, to a point that is midway of Fourteenth street, thus indicating that its possession of the ground is to be used to its advantage. No Meeting Held. The Board of Public Works and the city .attorney were to have held a council of war yesterday to determine what action, if any, could be taken against the Pennsylvania. The meet ing was not held .however. There are some indications that somebody made a bad "bull" in the Fouteenth street matter. Farsightedness was all on the part of the railroad compa ny, as usual, and the company offi cials were quick to grasp the situa tion and likewise quick to grasp and take possession of the ground. In one plat made out by the city previous to the vacation of 14th street ;t is asserted that the railroad compa ny's property north of tracks and west of 14th street, was shown to ex tend into the middle of the street, the old property linos being given in stead of those after 14th street was opened years ago. Error Proved Costly. Acting on this error, if indeed such it was, the railroad officials evidently thought that if the city itself credited a part of the street to the railroad, that the gift should not he turned down, therefore proceeded to "accept" it and then boxed up the. gift with a high stockade. Following this action the next step of the Pennsylvania was to occupy the newly acquired ground upon the claim that it reverted to the company upon the vacation of the street. As the vacation has formally been made, accepted and most of the damages paid, the city cannot rescind the action, and thus get hack the ground which the Pennsylvania has "squatted" upon. The only recourse now is for the city to bring action against the Pennsylvania charging it with obstructing- a public thorough fare. John Evans of the Quaker City Machine Company, who suffers most from the encroachment of the rail road company on property adjoining his plant .expects the city to stand bo hind him in his difficulty and to bring the legal action in an effort to oust the railroad.

After having ground out his favorite hymns. "Rock of Ag s" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul." more than a million times. Meieher Widoman. believed to be the richest organ grinder in the I nited 'IS States, is dead. For twenty-eight years the rsed or ganist played at the entrance to Glen Island. John II. Starin's big summer resort at Xew RoelrMle. It is estimat ed that during that time he oollect-.'d from ?30.ono to $7.", 0io in nickels and pennies from excursionists. The mu sic was so doleful that several times the millionaire owner of Glen Island tri 'd to force the old man to chap?" his location, but he had a license i'.'om the city, and as he was on city prop erty he refused to budge. Although Widoman was blind, l.e know by instinct when a crowd was approaching, and as each car and boat landed its passengers at Glen Island he started his wheezy old organ. The result was invariably a shower ot coins. It is said that during the busy season the old man's earnings aver aged $23 a day. When Glen Island was closed ho mot the trains at the Xew Haen Railroad station, and as the eonunut ters got off they were greeted by the familiar sounds of the organ. On numerous occasions people who grow tired of hearing the hymns pleaded with him to cut them out and put in a few rolls of ragtime, but he refused to listen to suggestions of this kind, as he said that ho had found that re ligious music, although doleful, was more effective in arousing sympathy than popular airs. Five years ago he yielded slightly to persuasion and bought the roll "Onward Christian Soldier," which ho added to his repertoir and continued to play until his death. Although he is supposed to have boon worth ?..0.(u)0, the blind man feared that ho would spend his days in the poor house. Two weeks ago lie became seriously ill and was forced to lay aside his yfir gan for good. Ho was removed- to St. Joseph's Hospital, in Manhattan, whore he died today.
