Perot ::is, records or memoranda than those pre
eenbed or approved by the commission, the carriers
are advised that until the commission shall, by
Order or otherwise, prescribe the accounts, records
or memoranda to be kept dv any or all carriers
subject to the statute, no change in methods of
'. accounting is r«vjuiv««l of any Mich carrier. On
and after August 2S. 1906, the authority of the com
mission to inspect the books and accounts of the
carriers will, of course, apply.
; The commission fully realises the necessity of
• olishirg:. a* soon as possible, a satisfactory
syetecn of accounting for carriers engaged in the
transportation of commerce under the provisions
of the regulating statute, and has determined to
; prr-ceed immediately in the work of arranging and
'■ preparing for the discharge of its duty in the mat
ter of prescribing such accounts, records and
memoranda, and requiring all practicable uni
formity in the accounting systems of the carriers.
Henry C. Adnms. the present statistician of the
commission, will, on and after August 1, ISO*, have
immediate charge of the preparatory work neces
i psry to carry out the Intention of the commission
to prescribe the accounts, records and memoranda

requirement in the amended Section 2 1 ) that their
' annual rojiorts must be filed with the commission
i on or before September 30 of this and each subse
quent year, unless additional time he granted by
; the commission.
An Informal conference was held to-day between
member* of the Interstate Commerce Commission
and representatives of the Southeastern Passenger
Ajrentp' Association, regarding the commission's In
terpretation of the rate law Th« conference re
lated particularly to the filing with the commission
by the railroads of the schedules of rates and
tariffs. While no definite decision ha* been reached
by the commission regarding the time of filing the
gchedulf s. the m^rni-Ts have no disposition to make
the enforcement of the new law unnecessarily em
barrassing to the railroads. Conferences between
the commission and railroad officials which may
be held from time to time will be the medium for
the adjustment of differences that may arise in the
interpretation of the law.

THIEF'S SLEEP CHARM.
Westcott Had Glass Globe to Throw
Victims Into Slumber.
Oranpe. July IP (Special 1. -Parker C. Westcott.
the mulatto burglar, who was ahot and captured
in East Orange on Saturday morning after be had
eluded the police of the county for years, turns out
to he a versatile sort of a fellow, to say nothing
of beiiiK up to date in the practice of his profes
sion. It was discovered to-day that Westcott had
purchased one of the favorite charms of the sug
peMive the-apeutists— an instrument for producing
"suggestive fptieue"-w'.th which, the police be
lieve, he hoped' to put any inquisitive householder
who might run across him as he was engaged In
his depredations into a peaceful, quiet sleep from
which the victim would later awake to find his
hnme ransacked and the burglar gone.
Wh»n Westcott was searched prior to his removal
to the hospital, among hla personal effects were
found a cheap revolver and a strange little glass
globe, fitted with a wooden handle and contain
ing a blulsl', crystalline substance. The revolver
would not work because there was a discharged
cartridge in the cylinder, and it struck the police
as amusing that Westcott should carry such a
; manifestly Inefficient weapon.
A<t!n« Chief of Police Bel! took the little glass
; globe to Dr. Richard W. Stltes. of Kast Orange.
and the physician, who happens to be a practitioner
Of the school of suggestive therapeutics, at once
told Mr. r>il what it was. He said it was used to
I induce a filing of drowsiness. This has given
rise to the belief that Westcott is something of
a humanitarian and 'iad decided to use the globe
in Heu of a revolver.
\Vestcot»'ti theory was all right as far as it went,
but Dr. Stitee said this afternoon that It would
rot work in practice. Dr Stltes said that U>nt
cott's sleep producer, like his revolver was not in
working order. That is. a pin point, on which the
giEe of the wakeful one is supposed to be concen
trated, was missing, and without that the thing
j was worthless.
In practice the globe is held in front of the pn
tient. who fixes his or her gaze noon the pin point.
The chemical elements surrounding the pin point
are supposed to exert some effect upon the optic
nerve. Dr. Stltes declares this is not auto-nypno
'< tism. but he says gradually the nerve tires', the
' patitnt becomes drowsy and finally tho eyelids
c!ose. and the trick is done.
West<-ntt still refuses to partake of nourish
ment of any kind, apparently being determined to
starve himpelf to death. If he persists, it will be
necessary to put him in a strnitjack»t and feed
, him liquid nourishment through a tube introduced
into the stomach through the nostril*. This is a
very disagreeable and painful operation, and the
hospital nuthoritle* think It will not be necessary
to r'.n this more than once to persuade him that It
1« murV] pleasanter to feed through the natural
channels.
EIGHT HORSFS HAD GLANDERS.
| Thirteen Killed in South River — Several in
Perth Amboy.
New Brunswick. July *) (Special I— State Veteri
arian William H. I»we. of Patcrson. and Dr. Ixmis
.1 Heil. ff. of this city, this mornnlg In South River
killed eight horses affected toy the glanders. All the
nnttnals belonged to the 8ou!h Rlv«r Brick Corn

I>r. Relloff discovered symptoms of the disease
among the tinima'.s several days ago, and called the
Sinte Veterinarian to make an offlcinl diagnosis.
Thin confirmed Ur Belloff'e diagnosis. This makes
thirteen that havo been killed at South River. The
city at Perth Amboy has been similarly affected.
vii.l a number of anlmam have been killed there.
A WREN IN AN ORIOLE'S NEST.
Jenny wren Is famous for the odd places In
which she builds her neat— mall boxes, tin cans.
Id hats, watering pots, a human skull on a battle
field—in each case perhaps the first thing the birds
came across with a hole in it and room for enough
sticks or stiff feathers.
And so I waa not much surprised to find a wren
bulging Inside of a new Baltimore oriole's hanging
cradle. Was ever wren so particular? was the
natur.il thought. Imagine young wrens being
swayed to sleep in a hanging nest on the end cf a
slender elm bough. It did seem absurd: and yet
the nest contained several ckks. which doubtless
jfitched. The neat was in a much safer place than
the umuol wren house or tree hollow, and so no
doubt the gating wrens grew to peep from their
Bwaylns nr* ., a.r.l later to leave it. having the
etr&r.ge exinrlerce. for wrens, of being bora and
raised la m trivia* nest.— St. Nicfeol**,

thousands upon thousands of dollars into the

land Is valueless and their children are under
fed and half clothed.
■ While the poor inhabitants are hoping for re
lief from Mr. Hately's action, Dowie is com
pleting hiß plans for future action against his
enemies, for whose defeat, it is said, he put in a
night of silent prayer.
Voliva. meanwhile, is waiting for replies to
telegrams which he has sent to many parts of
the world to bolster up his fight. The cost of
sending some of these messages ran as high as
£4O each.
