RECOGNIZED BT THE VOICR Wonderful Aeuteneaa of Hearlni; Aeqnlred by Telephone Operator. (Cincinnati Enqutrer.l "Speaking of recognizin; people," said a telephone operator yesterday, ' I can re member a man lonfrer and recognize him further off by his voice than by any other mean. I sit at an operating table all day and know all tbe regulars on my circuit by tbeir voices. Often in walking along the street i recognize the voice of a person whom 1 never saw before and know that he belongs to telephone No. ; and as I know the names of tbe mot of my patron 1 thus become fumiliar with tbe faces of many men to whom 1 waa nevel introduced. As an illustration of how I have learned to remcinlier voice I will tell an incident that occurred last week. 1 was up in Chicago and happened to use the telopuone. As soon as an answer camel recogniml the voice as that of an oerator named Brown, with whom I had worked In Cincinnati three years before. I did not know he was in Chicago, and was glad to soe or rather to hear him. He wan much surprised at my calling him by mime, and told me that he was in a dis trict stntion fully three miles from where 1 was standing. Yes, it is rather hard to distiug- ish tbo voices at first, hut with a little attention to the business an opera tor quickly acquires a very acute ear " . e The Color of th Eya. Philadelphia lx-direr.1 . Home curious researebi. have recently boen undertaken by Swiss and Swedish physician on the color of tlio eyes, but without any apparent practical purpose. For convenience alleyos were divided iuto blue or brown, the various shades of gray eye being classified according to the prom inence of blue or brown in tbeir color. Some of the conclusions drawn from a great many observations are thorn: That women with brown eye have better pros pect of marriage tban those with blue; tbat the average number of children is greater witb parents whose eyes are dis similar. In children both of whose parent have blue eyes ninety-three per cent, in herit blue eyes; but in children both of whose parents have brown eyes only eighty per cent, have brown eyes. Tbe aUive re sults were reached in Switzerland. In Sweden tbe discoveriee were not qnite the same. The women with brown eyo are more numerous there than the men with brown eye, but brown eyes are apparently tncreasiiig there, as iu Switzerland. GETTING BID OF CHINESE. A Mob lq Orrron Attempting to Clear Out a Tow. 1'orti.ixo, OreooK, Feb. J. To-day, a if by programme laid out, the Chinese are be ing driven our of Seattle. It i understood that the Knight of Labor areattb bead of the movement. The Chines are marched to the steamer Queen of the Pacific, lying at the wharf, and the rioter pay itoerag passage to San Francisco for each China man put aboard. The steamer plie regu larly between San Francisco and Paget Sound. At this hour (2 p. m.) about one Hundred have been put aboard. Tbe Mayor of Seattle and other prominent citizens Lava telegraphed to Vancouver Barracks asking General Gibbon, com manding tb Department of Columbia, for troop. General Gibbon has telegraphed the War Department. Chief Justice Green, of Washington Territory, has telegraphed Attorney General Garland, nrging him to nse his influence to have troops ordered to Seattle. About 5 p. m. tbe militia marched down to Chinatown and uok possession. Itxwas thoroughly deserted, except by a few merchant who had been allowed to remain temporarily, . At 5 p. m. a writ of habeas corpus was issued charging that the Chinamen were illegally restrained of their lilierty on board of the steamer. The writ was made returnable at 10 o'clock this evening. In the meantime the steamer waa enjoined from sailing. The situation at this hour (9 p. m.) is uncertain. A dismal rain is falling, and the mob has largely dispersed. Tbe Chinamen who are not on board the steamer are huddled together on the ocean dock. Two companies of militia are patrolling the streets. The Oregon Improvement Company also naa eighty men guarding ita docks and warehouse. Tbe authorities are de termined that no Chinaman shall leave un willingly. Every effort will be made to avoid bloodshed, but the most determina tion is ezpreesed on this point. Tbe troops at PortTownsend and Vancouver are ready to move, ajid are only awaiting orders from Washington. Much surprise is expressed that the movement was arranged so quietly. Tbe city is full of strangers, and it is hard to tell whence they came. It is believed that the plans were made in Tacoma, as many prominent agitators from that place, aa well a reporters of both Tacoma paper arrived here yesterday. Mayor Wetsbach, of Tacoma. is also here, and it is freely as serted that be is engineering the movement. The report that the Knights of Labor head ed the mob to expel the Chinese seems to have no foundation. While memlier of that organization were in the mob, there is no evidence whatever that the Knights as an organization were couuected with the measure. THROUGH THU ICE. An Unfortunate AITalr Near Graham, Ten nesseeThree Persons Drowned. NnssKLi.iT, Tzsk., Feb. 7.

Mr. Slater, after many unsuccessful attempts to rescue tbe wife and children from the water, which Is aliout ten feet deep, cried for help and was heard by two gentlemen, who reached him just in time to save him and tbe oldest child, ahout two years of age.
