A DRAMATIC SUICIDE.
The Terrible Leap of a Woman from the
Top of the Column Voudome.
(rtarb Ltlitr It FA(;kf(pA4a ftbrrajA.
The most dramatio case of tuioide of which
I hove ever heard was one'of which I was by
Chance the witnoss some years ago. On a
fine afternoon in Winter I was walking on
the Itue de la Foix at the end nearest to the
Palace Veudome. 1 was attracted by the
aspect of the dark Column Vendome rising
against the pale gold of the sky, and with the
last rays of sunset lingering upon the statue
at its summit, Suddenly I beheld a mass of
while, fluttering draperv falling rapidly
down the front of tho great dusky shaft.
It struck upon the huge laurel wreath sur
rounding the column whero Its base comes
in contaot with the pedestal, and was
thrown by the violence of the shock clear
over the railings to the pavement. These
white draperies were the skirts of a woman.
She had climbed to the summit of the column
with a camp stool hidden underneath her
cloak, and while the guide was explaining the
principal points of the view to some other
persons, she profited by tho moment his at
tention was distracted, placed her camp stool
just beside the railings, mounted It and threw
herself over. In her pocket was found a card
requesting that her body might be sent to a
Certain house in n highly respectable street.
The polioe caused the poor crushed remains
to be taken to the address indicated, thereby
unconsciously carrying out the revebgfnl
purpose of the suicide. , For her busbandhad
deserted her, and had gone to take up his
residence at the place she named with an
other woman. The effect upon the guilty
pair of being thus confronted with tho corpse
of the woman they had wronged must iiavo
been painful and startling to the last degree.
Some tune afterwards a young man threw
himself from the summit of the column,
breaking off one of the spearheads of the iron
falling in his descent. And since the epoch
of this lust suicide the column has been
closed against all visitors. The broken spear
head remains unmeuded to this day. The
Column of July on the Place de la Bastile
furnished for a time its quota of suicides, but
finally that, too, was closed against all per
sons wishing to ascend it. The last individ
ual who sought death by throwing himself
from its summit lodged on one of the Gallic
cooks in bronze that ornament the base ; and
as the law forbids any one to touch a oorpsa
till it has been visited by the police authori
ties, the ghastly remains hung there, a dread
ful spectacle, for over an hour,
A very singular case of suicide, remarkable
for the deliberation with which it was re
solved upon, took place lately in the Frenoh
provinces. A man who had committed a
theft of some magnitude found himself on
the point of being arrested. He call! his
wife and children together, told them what
he had done and consulted with them as to
the best method of disposing of the affair.
They unanimously acrecd that he ought to
kill himself. The culprit acquiesced and de
llberately completed all bis preparations,
which included golnp some distance In search
of a priest, to whom he made his last confes.
sion. Then he come back home, got his gun
and went out into the woodn and shot him.

voung Vlsoonnt X, who was playing with
his first-born child, a spirited, aotlve boy of
some eight months old, at (he open window
of bis suit of apartments, which was situated
on the tourth floor. The baby, in the gayety
and excitement of the sport, made a sudden
spring, escaped from his father's clasp and
fell headlong to the pavement of the court.
The wretched parent gave one glance at the
lifeless little form lying on the cruel stones
below, and then turned fiom the window,
took a loaded pistol from its caso and blew
his own brains out.

He said he got instructions from Mr.
Btorer, who is tho head ot the conoern, to
pay Mr. Pbllipsen this amount for new
market expenses when it was called for.
l'ho date on which this check was drawn
was Nov. 23, 1B88. Pbllipsen hsd explained
to witness that this monov would bo needed
to buy stands, but be (witness) did not be
lieve that was true.
"Did Phllipsen tell yon that he drove up

The Witness explained that Mr. Gessener
bad really intended going West yesterday,
but had missed his train. When he saw
Gessener. both last night and this morning,
he did not soy a word to blm about his being
wanted at the market investigation, although
he was fully aware of It.

length by Mr. Nlcoll. His answers wore
given in a slow, hesitating, doubtful sort of
way, and he made tho audience laugh, when
he was asked if he wonld swear to one of his
statements, by replying : " I won't swear to
anything I say."
He couldn't remember when he left tho
place of business last night, when no went
thore this miming, or at what .hour he met
Gessener. In lact, he was the most non
committal witness Mr. Nlcoll has had to deal

Mr. Nlcoll asked the witness what he had
said to Gessener this morning. Warner
promptly refused to answer. Mr. Nlcoll ap
pealed to Commissioner Holahan.
' ' The witness will please answor," said tho
' ' The witness still refuses to tell private

GALLOPING DOWN DILL.
It Is the Indians Who Load the World la

Biding rapidly down hill is exceptional in
the American cavalry, in whloh are hundreds
of bold and skilful riders. It is practically
forbidden in the schools, and I never yet
have met and ridden with a civilian who did
not rein in end obeck his horse whenever we
came to a sudden descent in the road or to a
steep slope when coursing antelope or
"jack rabbits" on the prairies of the great
West Nine out of ten of our cavalry offlcets

"heavy weights," end yet I have watched
horsemen day after day who never thought of
such a thing, who darted down hill full tilt,
giving their steeds their'heada ss they did so,
and, simply leaning bark a little, rode with
loose rein down any and every kind of slope
at a speed that almost took one's breath
away to watch it. These were the mounted
warriors the Indians of the northern plains.
On the afternoon of Sept. tf. 1870, when the
noted Sioux chieftain, Crazy Horse, swooped
down with seven or eight hundred brakes to
the attack of Gen. Crook's command st Slim

Into view from behind a high ridge to the
west of our picket lines and charged down a
steep slope at top speed, yelling like demons
as they came. There was one point of bluff
around which a trail led down into a deep
ravine. It feaft a mere buffalo track or game
trail on which they bad to ride in
single file, but one after another. I
counted at least fifty warriors who
shot around that point on their nimble
ponies and plunged at the gallop down n
incline, steep as the " Hon-eneck Stairs."

with the column. They rode down hill as
daringly as the Sioux and doyennes, and

mounted to rase or aid their horses. We
cavalrymen, on the contrary, "slowed up"
going down and generally uismo mted going
up mainly. It Is true, tn save our worn-out
chargers, but the Indians laugL 'd at us.
They pointed out .that a horse or any
other quadruped scampered Up oi down
a slone without slack or hesitation. Vhy
should we fear to let them do as they
would unencumbered by bridle or rider?
We were always taught to " hold tavt" on
the rein and so to raise the horse's head when
going down hill. " What's the nse f" askid
the Indians. ' ' Yon only prevent his seeing
the ground and so make a stumble tht more
likely." It led to a rhange ot primipl, on
the part of several of our number, and wo
found that common sense was on the Indian
side of the question, and that, barring a cer

down nlll when occasion required It as
on the level. The rule to the contrary It very
probably a mere precaution against the sever.

Collector Magone was at his desk Ins the
Oustom.House at his usual early hour this
morning, and read the newspaper accounts
of President Harrison's inauguration with
out losing any ot his cheerful good humor.
When The Etenino Wosld reporter sent
in his card the Collector immediately sent
word that he would see him,
"Well, young man," said he, pleasantly,
"I suppose you want to know what's to be
come of me ?"
"The Evkhimo Wobld would bo pleased
to let Its readers know just what is to be
done with you, Collector," rejoined the re
porter. " Well, I don't know that anything will be
be done. I suppose that as soon as the Ad
ministration gets things running smoothly
and wants to put some herd in tay place I
shall be consulted."
" And then I will retire, t lhU not at
tempt to put any embarrassments in the way
of President Harrison. If they wont me to
resign I shall do so. It would be my dnty to
help the President all I oould, and all Demo
crats should do likewise."
' ' But you could hold on if yon liked ?"
" Probably yes, but any soon attempt on
my part would be pare upptshness. Pardon
the word, but it Is expressive if not eortoct."

Is four years, dating from the time the oath
Is taken, so that he could not be removed
until the end of next year without cause.
