Ardsley Oin the iludson, N. Y., July 3.
I iitowing so closely the unraveled
IH ierInan mystery, considerable excite

teniipted suicide of a well dressed stranger,
who jumped off the private dock, in front
of the Ardsley club into the Iundson river,
and who was rescued in tnu unconscious
condition by members of the club.
I he stranger was seen walking in front
of the eluf's station near the spot where
John IIelfermnan, coachman, was tnur
dered May IV.
The Itan sitnid excited and rushed
across the railroad tracks to the duck an I
jumped in. A rope was thrown to hit.s
iy hilt tnployes, Int he made no attempt
to seize it.
Then one of the eiiployes jumped in and
hell the man until his cimpatnntls could
throw a rope to himt. 1le was dragged to
the dick unconscious and later retoved
to the Iihihis ierry hospital. No clew to
the tan's idi ntity chIld le found.
The shuottig of Ilelfernuti pave rise to
tianiv peculiar stories, some of which in

MYRIADS OF FROGS
OH HE MARKETS
ARE IN GREAT DEMAND FOR BAIT
AND GATHERING THEM IS
A REGULAR BUSINESS.
Chicago, July 3.-Oshkosh is undoubtedly
the best frog market on the American
continent. Chicago is a very close second,
however. More than two thousand dozen of
the green and speckled "jumpers"-34,ooo and
inure frogs-are sold along State street in the
Western metropolis every season to persons
who then his themselves to Wisconsin waters
in search of fish yarns. Most of the croakers
come from (tshkosh, where the tadpole indus
try is marked up as one of the leading com
mercial enterprises.
Scores of Chicago men buy frogs regularly
every Saturday afternoon and go junketing up
itti, Wisconsin to troll for hass.
Inasmtuch as the young frogs have won a
reputation as first-class bait, every fiasherman,
amateur or professisnal, has thrown away his
minnow hucket and his can of pork rind and
has boghst a frog basket.
Most of the big stores in Chicago now have
a frog ulepartmsent. The jumpers are kept in a
wire cage, where the buyer may have a view
of their liv iness and croaking ability before
investing. If he believes they will decoy the
htas train the rocks, he pays .g cents for a
dozen batrachians -1 cents a dzein is all they
cost, for I shkosh has an unlimited supply.
On the Town.
I ade in frogs list year did not exceed
u, it d.w ns pcr week during the height of the
aoglisg siason. This year the stores have
doublil the size of the frog cases, and have nd
trouble in ceiling twice the number sold last
year.
Many filiernuttn have standing orders at the
stores, andi at a certain hour every Saturday
there are awaiting them bags of the brown
juipers. Some of the best known Ike Waltons

sitets muich like a small boy would carry a
bag o~f setiusats. A few lays ago, twit men islet

"I iTn't that," said the other mtan as he

"There are two reasons why the nd ianna frog
is no good fir Wisconsin fishing. First place,
sdo you see this Ushkish frugr Look at his

The Wisconsin frogs cmeusi front clear water,

OVER RESTRICTIONS
BELIEF IS EXPRESSED THAT THE
WORLD'S FAIR WILL BE
INJURED.
BlY ASSOCIATED PRESS,
Pekin, July 3.-United States treasury
regulations regarding the Chinese visitors
to the St. Louis exposition are bitterly
criticised in the native press and it Is be
lieved will demoralize China's efforts to
take creditable part in the exposition.
The most objectionable points in the
eyes of the natives are the $3oo bond, the
photographic identification, police super
vision of visiting Chinamen and the ex
pulsion from America of the Chinese work
men and the assistcnts when the fair
closes.
The press points out that the Chinese
visitors will be no better than prisoners
throughout their stay.
The official newspaper of Chile province,
whose utterances are understood to be di
rected by Yuan Shi Gal, governor of the
province taunts America with hypocritical
pretense of friendly intercourse and says
the politeness with which what Is called
the most just nation on earth treats its
guests is a warning to Chinese merchants
and others throughout the empire to seri
ously reflect if they are contemplating a
visit to St. Louis.
Tte tone of the press has already in
duced many Chinese to forego the idea of
exhibiting at the exposition.

the money on some of the other work it
had in hand.
A legislative committee employed an ex

mission and examined the difTerent mem

did not result in Mr. Wornmser recovering
the money. In fact, it seems to have fallen

The governor recommended the abolish.

SPECIAL TO TIlE INTER MOUNTAIN.
Bannack, July 3.-Reports from Mis
soula that James Conlon as missing and that
he is from Ilannack are received with in

Bannack man, however, is not Conlon, but
Collins.
Collins has been gone from here about
a month. His wife and friends have heard
nothing from him. lie is a son-in-law of
Frank Gouchier of this city.
Was Not a Rich Man.
The Missoula story to the effect that
Collins had $,soo on his person when he
disappeared from that phlce is not credited
here, as it is known that lie was not well
off.
At Missoula Conlon, if he gave that
name there, got a livery horse from the
stable of Marsh brothers. He said he
wanted to go up Grant creek to get a
horse of his. lie has never been seen
since and he left Missoula over a week
ago.
May Be Foul Play.
The theory of foul play, as entertained
at Missoula, is not generally credited here.
Collins, if he had been to Kalispell, could
not have made a great sum of money
there as he had no interests there.
Collins left here when the grand jury
was about to convene.
