Bellwood la a tall, dlttlngulshed-looklng fellow, with long, (lowing mustache and a full beard parted In the middle. lie talks with a decided EnglLth accent. Bellwood waa chatting with hie wife and daughter In the Tomb prison yesterday afternoon when aeen by a Sum reporter. "la It true that your real name 1 Balensi r he waa asked. - Ugh," replied the prisoner with a disgusted air. "It 1 said that yon bare admitted lt la that r "Ugh," repeated Bellwood with a deprecatory shrug of his shoulder. "Do you deny that yon are Balensi V "Ugh," again replied the prisoner, turning hi baok and glancing over his shoulder, "Do yon care to make a statement regarding the charge that yon are Balenal r" - Ugh. I havo not yet seen my oonnL I will not make a statement until I hare teem Mm." Bellwood continued his ohat with hi wife and daughter. Tha woman declined to talk about lit matter at all. Bellwood is said to hara admitted that he waa Balenal, and to bar attributed hla unmasking ta George HV Marcus, the senior member of the Ann which ha is accused of robbing. According to till atorr, Bellwood left Franco two years ago, leaTing behind debta amounting to a million franca, and aeitled In Philadelphia, where, under the name of Bellwood, ho triad to do buainet In antique, brio-a-brao, K aid paintings. In which he Is said to be a connoisseur. lie could not rest content with moderate business, and got into the confidence of sereral big Jewelry houses.

Four hundred pawn Uoketa were found on him at tho time of hie arrest, and. attar Marcus & Co, bad ldentlHed several o the articles called for by them a Jewelry which they had intrusted to htm for sale.lt waa hollered that other com plalnanta would appear to claim the rest. Bellwood said the other sawn ticket called for Jtwslry belonging ta him. The detectives be lieve, however, that the owners of the rest of the Jewelry are awaiting the result of the present complaint against him. He is In the Tombs In default of -10,000 ball, and hla oaae la ta be considered by the Grand Jury this week. Qatllaome Balensi. who was In the conspiracy which ruined young Lebaudy and led to his death, was known on the Paris Bourse as a sharp Broker on orders for the agent dt eJumg. He ii a linguist as well as a man of general education, and his suare manner opened the door to hi association with financiers. He is of Ital ian and Hebrew extraction, and. although he has lived in Paris most of his life, he speaks English like a Londoner of the higher class. He had Just started the Socidte Francaise de Banana et Change when young Lebaudy, tired of life at the race tracks and other sporting; resorts, fell into the dutches of the conspirators. Lebaudy inherited one-fifth, of hla father' fortune of tH3.000.000 when 17 years old. spent $4,000,000 of It in Ave years, and died at the age of 23. Boon after begot his money he fen in with tho Comto Lionel Werthor de CestJ. and he became his financial adviser. Balensi was ohosen Le baudy's banker, and the confiding young man turned orer 93.400,000 to BalenL The Count Also Introduced Lebaudy to Mile. Many of Cm ComMio Francaise and a circle of blackmailing Journalist and other. To the I conspirators Lebaudy waa known aa "The Sugar Bowl," and they apparently helped them selves a they pleased to his millions. Balensi told Lebaudy soon after he Invested In his bank that a slump in shares had lost (3.600,000 tor him. It was said that Balensi took the remaining $800,000 with him when he fled from France. Before he left, however, young Lebaudy had been drafted into the army and was made to drive mules in the commissariat train. Thl soon broke down hla health and then. It Is alleged. Count Cestl and Balensi preyed on blm for large um of monoy, pretending that they were using It to buy his discharge from the army. He was transferred to a cavalry regt pnt, and his supposed friend told him they had made this possible with the money which bsgav them. He contracted bronchitla and got a furlough. He went to Paris and plunged into the wildest txeesie, encouraged. It was said, by the con spirators. Finally his condition became so bad that the Minister of War sent him to a military hospital on the frontier. Kile. Msrsy followed him there, and it was said he contemplated marrying her. The con spirator were endeavoring at this time to get complete control of hi fortune by Inducing blm to desert tram the army, but their plans were balked by Mile. Many. Lebaudy died of malarial ferer, and after his death Mile. Many made disclosures that caused the arrest of some of the conspirators. Balensi scaped arrest by flight.

VrAaniNOT0!f, Aug. l.-The succettful trans fer of that portion of the Congressional Library known as the Toner collection from the recesses of tbe crypt beneath tho dome of the Capitol, whero it has been hidden from tho light of tiny for nearly a quarter of a century, to permanent quarten In the new building, recall the failure of Congress to secure for tha library the exten sive and In somo respects unequalled collection of Americana made by the lato George Bancroft. The Toner collection was the work of a Washington resident, Dr. J. M. Toner, who was an industrious but not t all times discriminating collector. He was an enthu slsstlo ndmlrcr of Librarian SporTord, nnd In his collecting availed himself oftentimes of tbo services and skill of tho Librarian. When tho mass of books and pamphlets outgrew tho ac commodations of a private resldenco Dr. Toner turned It over to the Congresslonr.1 Library, but did not cesse his efforts to add to Its sizo and raluo until his death, a short time ago. The collection is particularly rich In publications that obtained but little circulation or reputa tion, and will be valuable to tho historian and writer on dotuestlo affairs of American life. Heretofore, owing to the lack of accommoda tion In the Capitol, It has been lmposdblo to place the collodion at the service of writen, but in its new quarten it will be open to all. The Bancroft library would have supple mented the Toner library in a direction in which It was lacking, as Mr. Bancroft's colleo tlon was secured by him almost altogether as a htstorjan, and it comprises many historical and publlo documents. By tbe term of his will tha Congress of the United State was to hare an option on the purchase of the library for two yean after Its appraised value had been deter mined. Pursuant to this provision his execu tors, a O. Qloverand James M. Johnston of this city, secured the services of Joseph -'. Sabln of New York,who placed a value of 070,000 upon the library. Efforts were made by the committee on the library In both the Senate and House to seoure favorable action by Congress, but they all failed. The last attempt was made by Mr. Uarroer In the Fifty-third Congress, near the close of Its term, when a single objection wa sufficient to prevent consideration of tbe meas ure. It had been Mr. Harmer's understanding that Speaker Crisp would recognise him to move an amendment to one of the general appropria tion bills, and thus secure the monoy necessary to effect tho purchase. But he was unable to secure the floor for that purpose, and with tha expiration of Congress tho opportunity for tho Government to acquire tha library passed away. "It wo only a few weeks after this," said Mr. Bpofford In speaking of the matter. " that J. Ken nedy Tod oame down from New York and made an offer to Mr. Bancroft' executors to tako the library off their hand for $30,000. They con ul ted with me about tho matter, and a there seemed then to be no probability that Congress would act, even if another opportunity were given, it was concluded to accept the offer, and tha library found Its way Into the Lenox Library In How York, It will now form one of the attractions of the great library of Greater New York, the establishment of which has been authorised by the Legislature of that State. The foundation of that library will be the consolida tion of the Lenox and Astor libraries, and of tho Tilden library trust. Col. Green, the superin tendent of the new Congressional Library, Is passing a part of bis time in New York aa a member of the committee appointed to select a design for the construction of Its new home. There hare been eighty-six plans offered In com petition, and while th building no doubt will be a fin one, it will not compare In any respect with the building in which the Congressional Library will soon be placed. "The Bancroft library would have been a very desirable addition to the Congressional Li brary." continued Mr. Spofford, "for In the course of his long and ytemntio search for material for his history he became possessed of some uniques. For Instance, he had the original manuscripts of the Massachusetts committees of safety, covering the period from 1773 to 1775, for which the State of Massachusetts would give its eye teeth, assuming that it had eye teeth to exchange. These documents breathe the air of freedom and courage which were char acteristic of their authors, and which perme ated the bodies whose uroceedlngs they re corded. Tbey ought, by all means, to nave found thlr resting Plaoe at the national capital, and not be Immured in a purely local library." Mr. Spofford is formulating plans by which the value and extent of the Congressional Libra ry may be increased. "The Congressional Library." he said, speak ing of his purpose In this rearard, "ought to bo made the foremost library in the world in Amer icana, and I am preparing llata of publication desirable and necessary to effect this end. It Is now (urpassed by only one library In the world in this respect, the British Museum. But that is not strange when one considers the radically different policy punned by the Congress of the United States toward Its library from that of Par liament toward tbe British Museum. It has. and has had for many years, the sum of 930,000 annually with which to Increase its contents, while at times we have been without any funds at all, and never bad anything liko that amount of money under our control. It is more difficult now to secure some of tbe old publications, be cause for forty yean the British Museum has refused to exchange duplicates. Prior to that time It did dispose of its extra copies, and a great many of these have found their way to the shelves of the Congressional Library. "The Influence of that magnificent bulldlnsr, the finest of its kind that was ever constructed, and. with possibly two or three exceptions, the handsomest building ever erected, upon the publlo mind, wo hope, will be reflectrd upon Congress, so that In the future Its dealings for the library will be upon a more liberal scale. N'o visitor to the library building falls to go without being greatly Impressed, and If Con gressmen will bat carry out the desire of their constituents who have seen and studied Us scheme of Interior decoration, combined with its majestlo proportions and grace of architecture, tbey will see to It that as rapidly as may be it shall be filled with a collection worthy the place in whloh It Is found. To this end. too, present conditions In the personnel of the library staff will greatly contribute. Mr. Young, tbe Librarian, by reason of his long con nection with the press, will be able, as wo have never been in the Dast. to reach the newspapen with tbe demands of the library, and by bringing them thus before the public secure many valu able contributions to the shelve that could not in any other way be had."

L Secretary Alger baa Issued orders for the relief of a large number of officers from recruiting duty, and their return to regiments and posts by October next. He will announce the new detail In a few days. This action has been taken, he says, because of the expiration of tbe ordinary time allowed offlcere to serve on this duty, and does not Indicate that any of the present sta tions are to be abandoned. The present enlisted strength of the army Is now nearly up to the full number allowed by law, and can be easily maintained, tne officials say, without nny unusual activity on the part of the recruiting offlcere. Tbe material now secured Is of a higher standard than the army ha ever had, ami ow ing to the regulation designed for the comfort and happiness of enlisted men the department predict that thl year will show fewer deser tions tbso for some time oast.

Cleverer Than tha British Bavlrae Mat ef the Point In the Perfernusnee Heme New or the .Yen York rial and or the Art or Hatters r Vorelsa stage Interest. Largo sections of tho dialogue of "Very Little Faust" float out with the tide from Manhattan Beach every day, and the work of freeing the burlesque of it wearisome talk will continue until tho action Is no longer Impeded by the deserts of dialogue that wore a part of it at the beginning. There Is no need of the conversa tions, for the audiences know tho "Faust" legend, and If they Mo not, It would never bo possible to grasp It from lllchard Carroll's toxt, which Is neither lucid nor bright In all places. Bnt there are some very lively speeches whloh amusa the audiences, and "Very Ltttle Faust," so far as the dialogue goes. Is very much bettor than the average burlesque. The subtlety of its travesty may be Bomewhnt dulled in the process of transfer, but it serves still, and the entertainment which the bur lesque provides is aboro tho summer standard. Herve's music would bo a delight to anybody familiar with tho Gounod score, for Its parody of the serious themes of tho muslo Is charm ing. To any ono hearing tho musta of Herve without a knowledge of the original work, there are still abundant vivacity and melody. It is rather interesting to contrast this parody of "Faust" with one that the London Gaiety Company brought to New York about eight yean ago. That piece had "mode in London" marked all orer it It had the charocterlstid sledgehammer qualities in which the writer of British burlesque so frequently Indulges, and the composer had made no attempt to suggest the original score. Indeed, oue recalls the musical features of the work chiefly from the "pas de quatro" which was danced by four young wo men and subsequently became the batUo song of all skirt dancers so long; as that race endured conspicuously. Florence St. John was seen then for the flret time here, and her London popular ity was found a little difficult to understand. E. J. Lonnen returned as a substltuto for Fred Leslie, and was not'so cordlallyViccepted, while there were other members of that company who returned hero from time to time without having endeared themselves especially to Now York audiences. But it was the burlesquo It self that seemed a little too British and heavy for appreciation bore. In William Parry's company Richard Car roll heads the comedians, and in adapting tbe text ho garo himself with pardonablo liborallty the best lines la the book. The accentuation of PaUnttnt into the leading comlo role was fol lowed by the writen of the English burlosqur, who mado quite as much out of his cune as Mr, Carroll does. He haj a German dialect which does fit always, and he has tho stago to himself for about fifteen mlnutos In the second act, whenthe'appcare riding an automobile. The progress of this vehlclo about tbe cvne is at tended with a clatter of horses' hoofs loud enough to make the fortune of any war play. When the end of the second act comes, and Valtntint has succumbcdto Favrt I sword, the automobile starts around the stage to carry off Maraueriti and her lover. Directly In It course Ilea Valentine. But he Is not too dead to roLUout of the war, and be Is abl to revive again when the falling curtain threaten to cloe him out, and roll baok to his place In the middle of tbe stage. Dorothy Morton acts with greater intelligence and less self-consciousness than ever before, while her voice carries well even In tho large auditorium. Truly Hhattuck Is a delight to the eye. but she should never, never bo persuaded to sing. If she must, it would be better to open a window at the back of the stage and allow her voice to have tha range of the broad Atlantic. Horace MoVlckar has made a play out of Tolstoi's "Anna Earenlna." and Inext sea son it will be acted by Corona Rlooardo. The drama Is divided into three acta and the last is divided Into two tcenes. Nance O'Neill announces that she will take a shy at "Magda" next winter and add her name to the list of actresses who hare attempted the role. The only women who ever played the part In r.ngllth were Modjeoka and Mrs. Pat rick Campbell. Neither was able to create the slightest Interest in the play. The fact that the heroine wa a woman of the stage with some charocterlstlos that were strikingly truo of ner class probably accounts for the desire of so many famous women to attempt the part. An American Mugda will be an entire novelty. Manager Cnnrleu of the Irving Place Theatre U going to havo a little theatrical syndlcato of his own next season. His enterprises will bo oonduoted in close connection with the Stadt Theatre in Milwaukee, ono of the best known German theatres in the United Htauu. This arrangement is the result of tbe two companies which will be employed at the Irving Placo noxt season. One will give drama and the other light opera, and the companies will appear al ternately lil New York and Milwaukee. It is said now that twenty-rive local stock companies will be employed in the United States next winter. This Is a larger"number than in any season since the days of the regular stook companies. But aj they are to play In theatres of tho second grade as a rule, there is nothing reactionary In tho movement. Fannr Bulkley, who was a lively figure In musical farce last winter, announces that sho will not return to the stage since ber marriage. Oscar Hommersteln is going to write the muslo for a burlenque on the Klondike fever, and James Thornton will supply tho libretto. Mr. Hammersteln will doubtless see to it that Mr. Thornton puts nower humor Into his bur lesque than he does Into his mualo monelogucs. He continues to tell In them Jokes that were re tired for old age years ago. But Mr. Hammer stein may be rolled upon to look after that. "The Little Minlnter," "Phroso," and "Change Alley," all play of English origin, will be acted here under Chorion Frohmnn's manage ment before they are seen in London. Tha Third Avenue Theatre will probably be reopened next season under a management which will return to dramatlo performances. "The lint Bom," the Son Francisco play which deals beriously with Chinese life, and will be seen here next winter, ha created a de mand for plays of this unique kind, and Imlta tlona have already appeared. "The Celestial Maiden" is the first, and It was lately seen In tho West. It Is in three acts, while its prototype has only one. Gabriel d'Annunzto, who Is shortly to stand for Parliament in his native town of Italy, has written for Sarah Bernhardt a play called "Tbe Dead City," which she will produce in Pari In French. After she has first acted in the drama Eleonora Duse will give it in Rome with Tina dl Lorento, a famous Italian actress and Flavio Ando. Duse' receipts in Pari amounted to $21,200 in spite of her Illness and the warm weather. Two HttIe!one-&ct plays, "Too Happy by Half" and "When a Man's Married," were acted here la-1 winter and were admired ss very fair speci mens of good one-act comedies. John Drew and Maude Adams acted the former several times and "When a Man's Married" was in the regular bill at tbe Lyceum. Ibey were pro duced anonyuiouAly and It now appear that their author nua Jutlun Field, a young English literary man, who write In French as well as be does In his own language.

Tacoma, Wah., July Dl. The 250 shingle mills In this State are working to their fullest rapacity to supply the Eastern demand for shingles, which Is the groatcst ever known. In May Washington shipped more than l.SOO cars of rod cedar shingles. The June shipments ex ceeded 2,000 can, amounting to 320,000,000 shingles, nnd the July shipments will exceed theso figures. These are the largest shipments in the history of the shingle business In the Northwest. Prices have advanced from ten to twelve cents a thousand over the prices of three months ago. Star A Stan, which then sold for as low as 00 and OU ants, aro now bringing $1.03, and clean, for which the manufacturer then re ceived $1.09, are retching 91.10 to $1.20. Tho dally output in this city amounts to nearly a million shingles, and In the Slate to about ten million. At present prices Ihe manufacturers are realizing a small profit, but they say It Is only small, for during the last year or two many mills have gone out of business and large stocks have been thrown on the market at out prices, which kept the general price down to tho cost of production or a little bolow It. The shingle manufacturere have been aston ished at the unprecedented demand of tho last sixty days, and aro also surprised by the fact that It comes from all se.tlons of tbo country. Tho demand has been especially heavy from the New England States, where the grade known as Perfections Is used chloilv. Ortlors have come pouring In nlso from New York, Pennvlvntiia, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri. Nebraska, Colorado, Dakota, and other central and Western States. Shingle men take this great demand as a sure indication thst times are improving In the East and that the farmers and others, mado hopeful by abundant crops, havo begun making Im provements, Including the reshtngllng of build ings, that had bean deferred for a number of years. Tho lumber business Is reported to be fair, particularly tho rail trade. In May tho rail shipments from this State were very good, being exceeded In quantity only by those of March, 1890. nnd March. April, anil May, 1993. The number of saw mills lnMhls State Is 24.5. with n dally capacity of f.773.000 feet. Col. O. W. Griggs, President of the St. Paul and Tacoma Lumber Company, env tho mil lumber buslnes Is holding up well, nnd he believes all the rail shipping mills aro having all thi-y can do. Tho Cargo trade, both coostwiso and foreign, is rather slack. Lumber priors are very low nnd at pres ent quotation there is little profit to be mado. He thinks that shingles should bring from 20 to 25 cents a thousand raoro than at present and that they would If tho manufacturere could agreo upon prices nnd maintain them. When Inst hoard from, Henry Hewitt, Jr., Treasurer of the St, Paul and Tacoma Lumber Company, was In Vlsdlvostock. Siberia, whence ho will return home after nearly a year s trip to Australia, China.

A very vague notion of the laws and legal reg ulations relating to the payment of publlo moneys exists among thoso who havo little to do with tho city In a business way, and It Is probably tho belief of many such persons that the city treisury Is a sort of mammoth recepta cle, the excess of revenue over payments being what is called the balance in the treasury. Tbo fact It that there exists no such state of affaire. At the beginning of each year, or rather In advance oi the beginning of each year, cer tain detailed and definite appropriations aro made, not merely generally for the us of certain public departments but specifically for certain bureaus In certain departments and for certain purposes. Money Is put by the Comp troller Into the hands of tho Chamberlain, who Is the custodian of the city's money, from time to time, as It comes in from taxes and other revenue, and thco moneys, which are actually on deposit In banks and trust companies, aro drawn out on warrants regularly signed, coun terelgned, nudited, and approved. Thus It fol lows that nt sundry times there are various bal ances to accounts, the law not permitting a head of department to contract for materials or sala ries in excess of tbe amount which he may havo to hla credit with tho city. On July 1, for Instance, those were some of the unexpended balances standing to the credit of the accounts following with the city, and, is will bo seen, there was great disparity anions them: Department of Street Cleaning. $113,397; fur niture and supplies for city departments, $38; printing, stationery, and blank books, $5,760; ''contingencies," Department of Public Works, 5.00; bealth fund. $21,230: street numbering fund. $18. There was at this time to the credit of what Is railed advertising 91.19(1. There was to the credit of the free bath fund $510. an 1 to the fund for "Incidental expenses of Sher iff's office" $70.80. Thero w.ts to the credit of "contingencies" Law Department, $'.509. and to the fund for " expenses of dedi cating Grant monument" $2,032. "For tho I maintenance of hridiro acrns railroads. Twenty-third nni Twent -fourth wirdx," tho amount on hand was $S1,1.', and to the credit of the I Bureau of I.anip and Gas there was $57,720. I It Is said that republics are ungrateful, but of the fund "for the burial of honorably discharged soldiers, s-iilora, and marines" within thu county of New York there was remaining on July 1 only $70, whereas on the account of " wagos, armo ries, and drill rooms," tbero was remaining $3 810. The city's expenses are so apportioned that they are pretty evenly divided during tha months of the year, nnd bonds iro issued so far rs possible so that tbo interest shall be dis tributed over various months, tut the citx's revenue does not conio Into tho Troisury with any approach of evenness. Tbero are enormous payments in tbe month of O tuber, large hut diminished piymenta In the month of Novem ber, and greatly reduced payments In the other months. In July and August, usuallj. the city is short of money; but in these months and In September(honternlH)respeclHlly) revenue Itonds are Issued In anticipation of taxes, and these aro paid off as soon as tho taxes begin to como In, which Is early in October.

THAT IS fTHT PHILADELPHIA POLI TICIANS EAT IJlBjr. If Taw Dat Believe It, Ask Cel. Jim Sweeney or HI Friend er McAllister's Dost Thar Hnw-Or Ion Hay Itrad Thl ternelon tary front the Wild or the loitstbaesa, "I know now," said a Phlladclpblan, "why Philadelphia politicians are so habitually and uniformly scrappy full of fight and always looking for It, just as If they couldn't help It, and nover giving up even after they are, metaphorically-' speaking, dead. I used to think it wns because they were born bad, and grow up that war, but it Isn't that. It Isn't innato bad ness at all. It is snapper stew and snapper soup, and other dishes of which snapper is the life nnd soul. That's what It is. I'll tell you how I know It. "I had never come in contact with snapper except by having seen it foi yean announced conspicuously in every Philadelphia refectory where politicians congregate as the one particu lar provider ot the elements ot sustenance con tained in the viands listed on the menus of those establishments, and where I had fre quently aeen more than a few eminent Phila delphia statesmen seated, each with a four quart bowl ot snapper somethlng-or-other and a bottle labelled as champagno bofore htm, doing full Justice to bolh-'lf which same,' I hoard a rival and evidently maligning states man say once, 'had been dono to themselves, they would bo in much more contracted quar ters, partaking ot much more frugal rations, at the expense ot willing taxpayers.' I had never seen but speaking of champagne, Philadelphia politicians aro beyond doubt tho gre&tost con noisseurs in champagne labels In the known world. They never buy or drink anything that Isnot containod in bottles with champagne labels on them. And tho labol has got to bo right. Al Cranford, ono of the best all-round Philadelphia statesmen that ever absorbed snappor or ordered up a bottle, used to bo a great label oxpert, I have known him more than once to robuko a barko2por for setting up a bottle bearing a wrong vintogo label, and re fuse to bo comforted until tho barkeeper bad taken tho bottle to the other end of tho bar and put tho right label on It I bad Been such enor mous quantities ot champagno bottlos opened wherever and whenever Philadelphia politi cians happened to drop In, that one day, having read in the papers that tho phylloxera had at tacked and almost rulnod tho vineyards of France that year, I was movod to ask tbe pro prietor of one placo where champagne bottles were opened In particularly great numbers, if he wasn't apprehenslvo that the Philadelphia politicians would be cut short In their suptly. "'Ob. no.' he said, confidently. 'Phylloxera never hit tho Jersey apple crop very hard.' "I suppose he know what he meant. "Well, 1 had never come in contact with snapper, "except in tho way I mention, until last w cek. Then I met him for fair. I was up near llarrlsburg, fishing for black bass in the Susquehanna ltiver, under the escort of Col. Jim Anthracite Sweeney of Hazleton. CoL Sweeney is ulso a statesman with a roving com mission. Ho could bo a Philadelphia statesman exclusively, for Charley Voorhees, ex-Ilesldent Clerk ot tlio House, right-hand man of Senator Quay when Quay manipulated the Harrison campaign of 1888 in New York, and at present fighting member of the Legislature from a Philadelphia district, has given him ull tho Solnts, but CoL Jim lacks two necessary quail cations. Ho can't mix scrap with politics, and ho is no Judge of labels on champagne bottles. Ho escorted mo on this fishing trip. Wo were tlshing in the.doep water across from Squire Mc Allister's place. Col. Sweeney was In one boat and 1 was in anotber, because he said he never had room for hi tlsh and bis feet at the samo time unless ho had a boat all to himself. I had caught quite a lot of big bass, but not one ot them was half so big as any one of the got en Col. Sweeney said had got away from him, when wo saw a great commotion In the water a hundred yards or so below us. Tbe water was being lashed and tumbled until everything boiled. " 'That's one o' thorn big bass that I hooked,' exclaimed CoL Jim. I hooked him so bad that he has como to tbe top down yonder and 1 giv ing his dying kick. That aln t the biggest one o' the tteven, either.' The Colonel pulled up bis anchor and rowed hurriedly toward the scene of disturbance, und I followed him. He got there a few yards ahoad or me, and instantly throw up hi hand and shouted: "'It ain't my big bass. It's three snappers having a scrapping match. I might have known that If It had been one 0' thorn bass o' mine lt'd have made the water lly a blame sight 111 oiler than this!' "1 had reached the spot by this time, and I give you mj word. I wns scared Bt first at w hat 1 saw. Three of tho ugliest, fiercest look ing creatures I had over teen were tlgbtln among themselves at a terrific rate, liiey paid no attention to us, but splashed and thrashed und churned that water until it looked liko tho wako of an ocean liner, lino of them was as big around aa a half-bushel measure. He had claws like a bear's and a head as big as a wild cat. " 'lly the squeaking fifo player of Garry oweul exclaimed Col. Sweeney, 'but lies a dnn.lyl I must get him for ( barley Voorhees 1 Charfcy'U need him this fall!' "Then ho grabbed an oar, nnd told mo to watch my chance, while he belted the other two and drove them away, and ralch tho big fol low by the tail and haul him into my boat, I hesitated. " 'It's easy!' shouted Col. Jim. "Ho'll be as peaceful as a lamb when be gets in the boat. They're done up when they're out of water. They're harmless a doves tbenl' "ao CoL Sweeney whacked tho two smaller ones with the oar, but they didn't mind it a bit. They fought harder than ever. At last the big fellow flopped around, and his tali stuck right up toward me. I clnti bed It and hauled away. Tho two other happened :o b cUnchod together Just then, and before they discovered what I was doitur I had tin gigantic snapper almost in tho boat, although It wa all 1 could do to get him there, and fnmo near upsetting the boat In doing It. Just a I hauled him over tbo gunwale tho other two discovered blm. They brokn away and made a rub at my boat like battering rrm. They tried their best to got into it after the one I had captured, but they couldn't do It, and foil to fighting between themselves again, aid we iet them go. "The big turtlo hadn't been In my boat ten seconds before bo 'legan to make a big hole In Col. Jim Sweeney's reputation for veracious speech. Ho roio on all fours, shot his tre mendous head out from his turreted shell, at tho end of at least six inches of rhinoceros-like neck, and came for mo with 01 en jaws. I jelled, and retreated to the bow of the boat. " 'riit on him!' shouted Col. Sweeney, back ing his boat away the while. '.Sit on hi ml Don't let him get away! Ho'll be a big help to Charley thi talL' "Tho snapper gained tho bow with amazing agility, and I Jumped over him and got to the stern. "1 hat's right!' yelled Statesman Sweeney, pulling further and further away. 'Keep him moving! If you don't think you can sit on him and hold him down, keep him moving eo,ho can't get away. I'll go over to McAllister's und get a feed bag to shove blm In.' "Away bo went, and tho snapper turned and advanced upon me from the bow, Ills tierce, yellow ejes glared as he came toward me. hi onormous shall supported on four wrinkled black legs, fully half a foot long. A he ad vanced he would draw his head way back into the cavernous shell and then shoot It out to the full extent of his flabby nock, at the same time snapping hi Jaws, lie got to tho stern, and I hail to jumti oer blm again to seek the bow, I was keeping him moi lug and no mistake, for thu it went, bark and forth, back and forth in that boat, tho snapper getting madder and madder because be ouuldn t manage to get a hold un me. and my wind getting shorter and shorter, until I made up rnr mind that unless Jim Sweeney got back with that feci! bug before long, or help cumo in some other shapo, I'd lime to deliver myself up U that snapper and let him do his worst. As luck would have It, a man who was chopping wood on tho shoro hoard my yelU, and he Jumped In his boat and pulled out to seo what was up. Ho brought his axo with him, and when he caw what ailed mo he struck that snapper's bead ott with ono clip of bis axe, and it foil on the bottom of tho boat with a heavy thump. Tho ees kept right on glaring at me, and llic Jaws kept right on snap ping, a If tho head was still fast on Ihe body. " 'He' a I1I1 loliow and a sass) one,' said the man who had re, ued me. 'You belter keep yo.ir distance from thai hind, for It'll cliitcn and chaw. Just as powerful a It ever did for the next forty-flight liouri'. . . . . , Tho man went away, nnd by and by Col. Sweeney came rowing back. He bad the food bag, but when ho found that the snapper s head wus off he was grieved " 'Uul' said lie. Youiiuhttobatent onhim orkepthlinm.ivnu!

More Observations or n rw Torkrr Among tbe tTneonsolldated. The men who wheel' tho babies of Brooklyn seem to have well defined Idena regarding tho dlschargo of their family duties. Even tho casual obscrrcr must notlco that they attend conscientiously to the tasks In hand. They do not gather in vivacious groups in the parks and gossip, as do the nurse girls and young mothon in New York. Thoy do not linger by the wayside to talk with tho policemen, while! their bablos cry unheeded or suck blank space until overwhelmed by hiccoughs. A Brooklyn man out with his baby rarely talks to more than ono porson at a time, and then he talks with one eyo on tho baby carriage. When ho sits down In tho park he tales care that only one other man with a baby Is on tho samo bench with him. Whllo ho reads his news popor ho keeps one foot on a carriage wheel and one hand on the carriage box, so that ho can respond to the first gnsp or gurgle with the gentle Joggle that toothos but does not ex hilarate. Thcso observations have been made in tho last" weekly tho Now Yorker who has been obliged, through no fault of his own, to llvo temporarily in Brooklyn. "I havo in mind a well dressed, black-eyed, rod-checked young.mon of about 30 who wheels his baby in the little park opposito my rooms every morning during his wifo's blcyclo ride," said the Now Yorker. "Ho has tho fatherly Instinct, as developed in Brooklyn parks, to an exemplary degree. His baby c-urrlago is a mar vel of lac'o-trlmmed parasol, wicker scroll work, and nickel-plated wheels and axles. He evi dently takes prlda In keeping tho carriago as bright and spotless as himself, I prcsumo he rise half an hour earlier that ho may keep it In a condition creditablo to the family. Per haps he is moved to such habits by his wife. Sho rides a wheel of marvellous brightness and may havo takon pains to Inculculo in him a similar spirit of neutnesa. - "No hunioiCbelng could bo more devotcd'to his baby than this model Brooklyn man. Ho takes a seat near tho park entrance, hangs a rattle, a rubber button, a red cloth doll, nnd a sliver buttonhook on a string from tho edgo ot tha parasol, gives the baby' stomach a playful squeeze to make the child good natured, und then begins running one eyo up nnd down the man's pages of tho newspaper. Tho other eye Is kept on the baby. He ha a cheerful word or two about tbo news for the man nt the other end of the bench, boiuctimos boccn takes out his bby and compares it with tho other man's, but these diversions are rare. Of tho hour ho 8 asses In tho park overy morning, at least fifty vo minutes aro dovotod exclusively to his own baby and his own newspaper. '"Iho other day, when 1 was taking an early stroll In tho park, a young woman whose hus band travels, nnd therefore cannot care for his baby, wheeled ber carriage to tho park early and sat dow n between tho model Brooklyn man und his usual companion. Both men Bccmed to resent the intrusion, and pushod their car riages nwny from tho young woman. Tbey undoubtedly thought tbero wns something wrong with her. Why was sho taking caro ot the babyl Whero was her bicyclcl What was her husband doing at that time In tho morning! How did It happen that ho had loft her to look after tho family I Theso questions flushed across their faces as thoy glanced at her suspi ciously und exchanged looks, as much as to say, 'sho must be from Cnnarslo or Now York or Jamaica.' But the young woman did not seem to realize her mistake. When U10 modol Brooklyn man's baby tore tho rubber button loose sho pinned It on again. Sho oven poked tho baby under tho chin nnd called It a dear little thing, lhat was too much for tho model Brooklyn man. Ho rose, ttitf with Indignation, and trundled his carriago oil to another bench. "Hut tho touch of a woman's hand evidently hail disturbed the baby's temper. Wail 1 tcr wail camo from tho carriage. Tho young wo man was worried. Eventually eho moved over to the model Brooklyn man's bench and asked him if his baby wasn't colicky, lhat also was too much for tho model Brooklyn mam Ho answered curtly that his baby was not colicky. Theu wasn't it crying for its mother. Hn said It wasn.t, and an Icicle frozo to each word as he said bo Well, shouldn't she hold it a minute, anyhow, and see If sho couldn't quiet ltl This wus the climax. Tho Hpirlt of tho modol Brooklyn man rose in might and ho rose with It, pushing his baby carriago off with vigor down tho walk to the noxt bench. "it was a tine cxhlhltlon of cox spirit. Tho woman had touched his pride, and his conscience. He was there to take ciro of his baby and did not intend to let an body usurp his responsi bilities. Ho was motherly. I mean fatherly all tho way through. t hen he met his wife. Just finishing her spin down tbe asphalt, I could bco tho consciousness of duty well done shine out-'all over blm as bo trundled along his carriage by her wheel and, by a motion of the head, betrayed the fact that be wns telling her ot tbe woman who had annoyed him in tho pork."

Tho peoplo of Wyoming are experiencing a generous share of tbe general prosperous business condition of tho country. The two leading Industries ot tho State aro sheep and cattlo raising, nnd In thcso two Industries there is an Increase this year over last in this State In value of over $5,000,000. Tbe assessment rolls of the Stato for 1890 show that tbero were assessed for taxation 207. 210 head of cattle at an averago valuation of $12.50. The actual number of cattle In tho State, according to tho most conservative esti mates of stockmen, was 500,000. and tho aver age market value of thcso cattle on the range was $17 a bead. Thi j ear there are 500,000 cattle, and tho av erage per head on tho range is $25. Soveral big herds have been sold nt this price, nn Incrense of $8 a bead for ono year. Iho increased prico means a direct gain to the cattlo raisers of Wy oming of $4,00O,imhi for 0110 year. Tho advance in the sheep-raising Industry has been even more striking. In ln(( the total number of sheep assented In the Stale wns 1,. 063.003. valued at $1.77 a head. This repre sented perhaps one-half of tho actual number of sheep In the State, which Is 2 OOO.OOO head.
