Second-hand Dealers in the Police Cot-BT.?This morning about twentv-five sec ond-hand dealers appeared in the Police Cipirt to answer charges of being unlicensed junk dealers. The cases were continued on their personal bonds to await the result of the trial m i brought during the last license A Boy's Adventure. HI IB ARRESTED IS COMPAST WITH TWO XEKOF DOUBTFUL CHARACTER. Joseph Campbell and Thomas Hendricks, youug men. and Frank Wesley, a fifteen-year old boy, were arraigned in the Police Court this morning, charged with being suspicions persons. and Hendricks was also charged with carrying a blackjack. He pleaded guilty to the latter charge, but they all denied that they were vagrants. Lieutenant Amiss, Dectective Home and Officer Board man gave testimony against them. They were arrested in Kernan's theater as suspicious per sons. From what the officers could learn it ap peared that Campbell and Hendricks were going to use the boy to climb through tran soms. One of them claimed to have come from Wilmington while the other named Balti more as his home. When asked in court whether they desired to make a statement or not they replied in the negative, but the judge was not satisfied with what he had learned of the boy and he was closely questioned. The boy said that Wesley was Ins right name, but that he sometimes went under the name of his step-father. Fred Wolfe. The latter, he said, lives in Apollo, near Pittsburg. Four months ago. be said, he left home because his father ill treated him. A couple of days ago he was ar rested in Towsontown. Md., with Arthur Yeat man. for trying to beat a freight to Wilmington. Yeatman got him out.<and he came here on a freight train. On the train he met his present companions, and last night they took nim to the theater. The judge said that this case shows the necessity of a house of detention. This boy's mother, he thought, was probably anxious to see her missing child. The ooy said he was fifteen years old, and the judge sen tenced him to the reform school. His com panions were required to give bonds or go down for three months, and Hendricks was fined 420 or GO days additional for carrying the blackjack. Notes From Anaeostla, D. C. Dr. R. A.

At the emancipation celebration in Phila delphia yesterday addresses were made by Fred Douglass. Rev. Dr. B. F. Lee, ex-presi dent of Wilberforce university; Rev. R. J. Allan, secretary of the Freedmen's board of the Presbyterian general assembly; Bishop Fohs, and others. Bishop Foss said that the creature who was not thought a man forty years ago now managed to read Greek and "Hebrew and struggle aloug with metaphysics and mathematics as well as his white brethren. Fred Douglass, in his speech, said: "I object to this problem being called the 'negro prob lem." because it does not state what I esteem to be true. I object because it creates a false im Eression. I deny that there is such a thing efore the American people as a negro prob lem; it is a national question. To call it a negro problem is to imply that there is some thing wanting in the negro: that he is inferior, ignorant, or brutal. I object to this thought less misuse of words, which is much in vogue now. We hear every day of 'negro riots.' 'negro brutality.' Now. it makes no difference how the matter originated, if there is a negro in it, it is a -negro difficulty.' But we should look upon the bright side of the question. I fully understand and appreciate the great change during the last twenty-five years. I feel as if I were in a new world. It seems as though the sun doesn't come up in the same place. But when we talk of what has been done we should also talk of what is to be done. The whole question is whether the American people, in this nineteenth century of Christian civilization, have the honor to adjust the action of the nation to the fundamental prin ciples of the constitution of the United States ?whether this nation is to walk up and keep to its boasted freedom, or whether it is to allow the negro of the south to be defrauded of his vote and be branded as a nation of hypocrites and liars. "The negro has alwavs been faithful to his country; the negro fought for his country. He only asks to be treated as you treat those who fought against you. The negro loves his coun try. He only asks to be treated as you treat those who hate it. There was never a people emancipated under such unfavorable circum stances as the negro race. "Notwithstanding the work that has been ac complished in the last twenty-five years, a slav ery black and terrible still exists in the south. Some of our republican friends would adopt a conciliatory policy and would take away the proportion of electoral votes in the south rep resented by the amount of negro voters not allowed to vote. But I do not think that would be a good thing. I am waiting now to see what will be done by those who will soon go into power. Some statesmen are talking a little different than they did before election. Brother Sherman said before election: 'We will do so and-so.' He now savs: 'You do so-and so.' I am for the 'We will Jo so-and-so' now." Caucus Nominations for U. S. Senators. The Colorado republican legislative caucus last night nominated E. O. Walcott to succeed United States Senator Bowen. The joint republican caucus at Augusta. Me., last night renominated Hon. Wm. P. Frye for Senator by acclamation. At the republican caucus in Lansing. Mich., last night. James McMillen, of Detroit, was nominated by acclamation to succeed Senator Palmer. ? ??? Longevity of the "Grand Army." From the Boston Transcript. How long the Grand Army of the Republic may survive as a distinct and important organi zation may be guessed from a glance at the number of Harrison voters of 1840 who voted for President Harrison's grandson in Novem ber. In Iowa there was a club of 8.000 of these men. and in Ohio the roll of 1840 Harrison voters reached 6.831. The Iowa members' names, ages and places of residence, in 1810 as well as in 1888. were published by the Des Moines Register. The ages ranged from sixty nine to ninety-seven. Allowing for the fact that the soldier discharged in 1*>5 might have been but eighteen years old, while the voter of 1840 must have been twenty-one, it appears that the presidential election of 1916 will bear about the same relation to the Grand Army veterans that the election of 1888 bore to the voters for William Henry Harrison. But after that distant year the "soldier vote"?unless we have had some more wars in the meantime? will have ceased to be a terror to the politi cians. Osman Anxious About His Wives.?A de serter from the rebels, who has reached Sua kim. says that Osman Digna tried to send the members of his harem to Suakim, apparently fearing trouble with the dervishes, and that Arab scouts stopped the women and sent them back to Handoub. The dervishes, the deserter savs, have become suspicious and accuse Osman of" treachery. Scouts mounted on camels and spearmen afoot were observed Wednesday morning from an outlying fort. Nerve of a Dyiso Bbakemax.?Edward Cam den, a young brakeman on the Norfolk and Western railway, while coupling cars at Nor folk, Va., a day" or two ago. slipped, and two wheels passed over both thighs. To extricate him both wheels had to be run over his legs again, and then, before he was gotten out, four cars broke loose from the train and ran over his mangled limbs. He was fully con scious all the time and did not make a cry of pain or a complaint. When he was gotten out he quickly removed a quid of tobacco from his mouth and threw it away with the remark that he would never take one again. When the sdr geou amputated the shreds of his mangled limbs he took no anesthetic. Up to the time of his death, some hoars afterward, he never uttered a complaint A CHILD'S EARLY EDUCATION. Sensations and Feelings that Influence the Future Life of an Infant. We take little note of the education which goes on in a child's mind daring the first rears of his life, writes Principal James Donaldson, in the Forum. Indeed, we take little note al together of what we mar call unconscious edu cation. and the unconscious action of the mind. I walked the other day along a crowded thoroughfare for a few minutes, and I counted the people that passed me. There were up ward of three hundred. Each one of these in dividuals I noted. I recognized, at least, parts of their attire. I saw the features of their faces, their mouths, their noses, their eyes. In moving along I noticed the stones of the pavement on which 1 was walking. I avoided the lamp-posts; I observed the houses and shops, and, indeed, a wide range of objects came within mv view. It would be difficult to say how many things, and thoughts connected with these things, passed before ray mind dur ing this short walk, but at least there were manv thousands. Ali these objects and thonghts. there is rea son to believe, found a permanent place in my memory, produced a certain effect on me. and became, aa it were, a portion of myself, but not one of these can I recall. They were all for a single moment on the surface of consciousness, and sank forever into the deeper and wider abysses of unconsciousness. But doubtless thev give some color to my whole life. So it is with the infant. He sees and hears and feels thousands of things during the period of his in fancy. These sensations and feelings have an incalculable influence on his future powers and character. And it is here at the commence ment that we may expect an indefinite im provement in the "future of mankind, through an improvement in the unconscious influences that work on the child. It has often been observed that children have nearly all linelv developed foreheads, and no one who takes an interest in children can have failed to be struck with the exquisite beauty that characterizes very many children of the humblest classes who are brought up in healthy places. In fact, a sad degeneration takes place in the looks of the humbler classes as the child grows to boyhood and the boy to manhood and old age. And the question occurs: Might not this degeneration be arrested? Surely this is possible to a large extent. Everything depends on the treatment of the child in his eariiest years and on the character of the persons with whom he comes in contact. ? ???? Didn't Believe in Signs. From the Boston Transcript. "Are yon superstitions?" asked Brown of Tapelv, the proprietor of a big dry-goods es tablishment. "In other words, do you believe in signs?" Tapely?"No, sir. I don't.?Mr. Catchem. have a notice put out that we are selling our winter dress-goods at less than cost.?As I was about to say, sir. I do not believe in signs. They are all humbugs and nonsense, sir." A Wronged Husband's Revenge. HE FATALLY STABS AND CUTS HIS WIFE'S LOVER. A special to the Baltimore American from Berlin, Worcester county, Md., says: "It has just been made public that on Thursday last Jas. M. Henry, a wealthy young farmer living near this place, caught his wife in the woods near his house with Edward Bowen, a hard ware merchant of Berlin. A fight ensued, in which Bowen was getting the best of it until Henry drew a knife and stabbed his opponent twelve times, inflicting serious if not fatal in juries. Mrs. Henry at once left and is supposed to have gone to her relatives in Philadelphia. Both the men are prominent, and efforts have been made to keep the affair quiet. Mrs. Henry is well connected in Philadelphia and is independently rich. She left several children here." Let the Girls Propose. Henry Laboucliere in New York World. There are over a million girls in England ! who are not likely to get married. In order to remedy this state of thiugs I would suggest j that the girls should be allowed to propose? ? in fact, that the courting and proposing should henceforward be a business appertaining alike to both sexes. There are a number of young men who are shy. They have a vague and general idea of marrying, yet cannot screw up their courage to the sticking point. These, were the road to matrimony made easy to them, would succumb. If, in addition to this, parents would have the sense to leave to their daughters the same amount as to their sons, and would let their intentions in this respect be known, they would speedily reduce the number of girls at present condemned to single life. Too Much Business Kills Them. From the San Francisco Examiner. "There is only one temperance town in Ari zona," said a recent arrival from that territory. "Have you never had any saloons there?" inquired a bystander. "Plenty of 'em." "Didn't they do any business?" "Too much business. That's what killed 'em.'' "How was that?" "Well, you see, Arroyo Grande is right i astride of the Mexican line. We go to a saloon on the American side of the town, put down a dollar and get a drink an 1 a Mexican dollar in change. Then we go back to the Mexicau side, plank down the Mexican dollar and get a cigar and an American dollar in change. That's the way we keep things going' until the saloon freeze out.' Unpublished Lines by Longfellow. From Hyde Park News.. One time when a friend of Longfellow named Mr. Greene was visiting this great poet the children were to have a little play, but had no prologue. When Mr. Longfellow heard this he said: " What! No prologue ! We must get a pro logue in some way. I will write one for you myself." And he sat down and wrote a few lines for the children. One of the little girls who took port in the play gave a copy of this little poem to Mrs. Helen E. Starrett. of Kenwood. It is as follows: Life is itself a mimic show; We are all actors here below; And so our comedy to-day Will be a [ lay within a i>Iay; The prettiest one you ever saw. The author calls it "Margery Daw." We represent it on the scene For the benefit of Mr. (ireene. Its varied scenes will here disclose Fair Lady Arabella's woes; Here Mistress M rgery lends the charm Of romance to a d .iry farm; Here bold Mr Lancelot pliirhts his troth To both of them and loses Iwth, And the tall guardsman in disguise. As poor as John Podger, uieels our eyes, While Dummy shows t-iat soon or late All thing* come 'round to those wlio wait. Fastidious. From the Gentleman's Magazine. Alonzo Cano, the Spanish painter and sculp tor of the seventeenth century, refused, when lying on his deathbed, to kiss a crucifix which was presented to him because, he said, it was so badly executed. When the famous musician Rameau was dying his confessor wearied him with a long homily, and he. rallying his failing energies, exclaimed; "What on earth makes you come here and chat to me. Monsieur le Cure? You have a deuce of a bad voice." Corruption in a Labor Union.?Fifteen delegates to the New York central labor union have been charged with accepting bribes from the boss brewers for voting in favor of raising the boycott on pool beer. Charles Pommer, delegate of the Journeymen Brewer's union, says he was visited by Eck. a barkeeper, who stated that he learned* through overhearing a conversation between Congressman Ashbel P. Fitch, attorney of the Boss Brewers' associa tion. and Detective Von Gerichtel. that Pom mer could make $1,500 for his assistance in raising the boycott. Eck told him that fifteen delegates had agreed to vote this way.

Last Winter I was troubled so badly with rheumatism In my right shoulder and joints of my lav as not to be able to walk. I took Hood's Sarsaparilla, and now I don't feel any aches or pains anywhere, and It not only stopped the soreness in my shoulder and Joints, but makes me feel as lively aa a ten-year-old boy. I sell newspapers right in the middle of the utrecl every day In the year, and standing on the cold stones aint no picnic, I can tell you. And If Hood's Sarsaparllla cured me it certainly ought to be rood for those people who dont stand on the cold stones. I can be seen every day In the year at corner Tompkins and DeKalb avenues.

Nobody has thought of this southern country (Buenos Arret) a* one from which there may spring a rival in wheat growing effort that mar effect the market of the United S ..ten. Aa a matter of fact the thing U accomj ished. and from the district where I write whe..t in grain and in flour is already starting its remunera tive Journey from the pampas, and has brought back its value from Brazil. Chili and the Latin states of Europe. Encouraged by these results, the area of planting is increasing. The acreage of the increase, as a fact, is pitiful, and the amount of land under cultivation is to the Yankee mind contemptible; but the pos sibilities of wheat are greater than those Minnesota knew in 1860. or Dakota and her sister territories enjoy to-day. A climate that knows no frost, a soil virgin to the plow but enriched by centuries of grasses blown into the land and fertilized by innumer able cattle, whose movement over its area has known generations of death as well as the con tribution of their life, has made a land fit for the gardener's spade. Its generic character is. of course, alluvial, but time beyond memory this land east of the Andes has known no curse except that of mau. whose misuse of its offer ings has brought forth a race whose character, until within ten vears. hns been that of non producers. hopeful from the efforts of every enterprise except their own. speculative upon any foreign energy, and ready and anxious to enjoy the fruits of every industry so long as they could profit by either, or hold the harvest reaped where they had not planted, and gar nered whence they had not sown. Let me give some practical illustrations of values here. I went to visit an "estancin"* [ (ranch) of twelve leagues of land (a league is nearly 6.000 acres*. I was met at the railway station on a cold winter's morning in July by a four-in-hand. The driver was a peon; the vehicle one under which the two forward wheels turned easily, and its body behind the seats was covered with the home-dri ssi d hides of horses. Its seats were cushioned with pad ded horsehides. the harnesses were raw horse hide. the whip was braided horsehide. and the pace was a run: no trotting horse is known. Over the pampas. 32 miles in 100 minutes, the only skill of the coachmen called upon was to avoid the cattle wallows. It was a pace for ex perience. Arriving at the estancia the horses were brought up all standing, the harness dragged off and the animals sent adrift on the pampas. I asked the superintendent of the farm what became of those horses. "I don't know." lie replied. "What are they worth?" "About three nationals each." (A national is a dollar: in the present depreciated condition of currency, about 57 cents.) That afternoon, with a new four, the superintendent and I were driving and came up with some peons skinning a dead but still steaming horse. An inquiry revealed that it was one of the four that galloped thirty-two miles in the morning. "I knew the driving was too hard." I said; "the horse was killed." "Why. bless your in nocent heart." said the superintendent, "we shoot fifty or sixty horses or mares a week. To-morrow I will show you a "rouud up."" And he did: and they killed 74 horses, took their hides, boiled down their fat. stripped the hair from their manes and tails, and counted it profit and left the carcasses on the pampas for the waiting scavenger of South America, the condor. What is that Carlyle says about the stored-up energy which constitutes a na tion's wealthy There was a lot of energy re leased that day. It must seem incredible to our Yankee and rairie farmers that horses could be so used. ut it is a calm fact that more than 700.000 were slaughtered in the Argentine liepublic last year, as shown by the raw hides sold in market. Horses grow wild, and worse horses it is impossible to conceive. A horse is cheaper than a coat?I mean a horse broken to ride or drive. Beggars (and in this country there are many) ride from house to house to solicit alms, and refuse a horse from an almoner from whom they expect a richer gift, for a horse is the cheapest thing he can give. Judged by our ideas of economy, this all seems mad extravagance. Thev excuse it in ways not satisfactory to me. for it is extrava gance, say what they will. No distance of mar ket can compensate for the waste of pure strength easily realized upon, in a land where a premium of ?30 per capita is paid for every immigrant, howsoever poor, who comes to settle and work. Bad as the horses are, one of them is worth any four immigrants I saw of this class out of 10,000 landing in Buenos Avres in July. Tricked by a Colored Man. TWELVE WHITE MEN PCT UP THEIR MOSEt BCT OUT NO WILDCAT WHISKY. A dispatch in the New York Sun from Hart selle, Ala., Jan. 1. says: "The lovers of good whisky at Christmas times on West Flint river. Ala., had a smart trick played on them Christ mas week. A strange negro made his appear ance among the West Flinters and told them he was employed by a -wildcat' stiller to sell wildcat whisky, and if they would get him up a club of twelve or more he* would till a gallon jug for SI each. Forthwith one of the West Flinters was appointed to get up the club of twelve. The darkv told them to meet him on Monday at 1 o'clock at the first big hollow on the south side of West Flint, just above the Decatur road bridge, and to bring along their jugs and he would fill them. At the appointed time a dozen or so men with as manv jugs were on hand; so was the negro. He told them to each pay over his dollar, and then he would take the jugs and go down the hollow, and when they heard him whistle to come on. as he would till the jugs an 1 set them down where he whistled, and step off a step so that if he was brought into court they could not swear he served the whisky. As this seemed all right, the money was paid over and the negro went off with "the jugs down the hollow. In a short time a whistle was heard, and all made a rush for the merry Christmas whisky. Soon the jugs were reached, but a howl went up from that crowd. Not a drop was in any of the jugs. A search was made for the negro, but no negro could be found. ??? All the flour mills in St. Louis excepting one closed down yesterday under the agreement entered into by the millers' association. Under this agreement 250 mills in the fall wheat belt will either close down or run on half time dur ing January. Walter A. Jones, one of the proprietors of the Jones car works, of West Troy. N.

The wife of the dr?t Lord Newborough and the grandmother of the present holder of the title ' wan a certain Maria Stella, the adopted daugh ter of one Chisppiui. the jailer of the city prison of Modem. Proof*, however, we ?aid to txist not only in the Newborough faaaily. but alto in the imperial and royal archive* at St. Petersburg ana Amsterdam. which conclu , sivelv prove that Maria Stella was the eldest daughter of Philippe Egalite. duke of Orleans, and of hi* wife, the duchess. It will be remem bered that King Louis Philippe ?>? born at Modena on exactly the wne date a* Lady New borough, and the proofsabove mentioned' show, without a doubt, that the infant son of the gaoler Chiappini wax substituted for the new born daughter of Philippe Egalite and hi* wife; the illustrious pair were then duo and duchess de Chartre*. and. having no male issue, the motives for the substitution were both obvious and of a powerful nature. The little girl who wax a victim of thix fraud grew op into a beautiful woman and made the conquest of the tirxt Lord Newborough. Not only did the gaoler Chiappini make a con fession on his death-bed concerning the whole matter, but at hi* own request it was taken down in writing bv the procurator aud bv the head of the ecclesiastical tribunal of Modena. | Chiappini's wife confirmed the dying statement | of her husband, aud related how the substitu tion had been t fleeted at the time when the | duchess was confined in her home. The story wss farther corroborated by the r. gi-try of the parish in which Maria Stella wax christened, and in which xlie figures ax the legitimate : daughter of their royal highnesses the Due | aud the Duchess dc Chartres. tin the demand of the first Lord Newborough. the supretiw 1 court of Modena issued a judgment fully con firming the claims of his wife to public recog nition as the It gitiniate daughter of l'hillippe Egalite and his wife. Copies of this Judgment exist to this day in many of the public libraries of France, and notably 111 that of Roucu. Fearing that the French motiurchial govern ment might possibly attempt to rob her of the documeuts relating to h. r claims. Lady New borough took the precaution of addressing duly legalized copies thereof to tile Emperor of Russia aud to the King of Holland, with both ot whom she was a<.i|Uainted. and the tact remain* that uot only t!.e Dutch monarchy, but also the Czar Ni -bolus profcss< d a tirui be lief in their authenticity, absolutely d< dining to recognize King Louis I'lnl'iippc in any pos sible way. During the whole of the citizeu king's reign boih Holland and Russia were without diplomatic representation at Pans. The whole story w is well known forty and fifty years ago. and the political caricaturists of the day delighted to represent King Louis Pliillippe in the garb of a gaoler, with the subscription of "I!oii chien chaixe dc race" un derneath. Even Thiers is reported to have ex pressed an opinion entirely favorable to the Newborough claim*; \ is true he was 110 longer Louis Phiilippe's minister at the time. As the citizen king inherited the whole of Egalite's vast property, which constitutes the basis of the immense Orleans fortune, the recognition by the French and English tribunals of the decision of the supreme court of Modena rela tive to Lady Newborough'* parentage would be of extreme importance. Indeed, it would in validate the pretensions of the t'omtc de Paris, the Due d'Auiuale and of all the other mem bers of Louis Philliuue's family, to the throne of France, to royal biood. and even to the very name and fortune which they now possess. A Colossal Rlossom. THE world's LAlKiEST FLOWER FOUND ON HOL'NT PAKAG. From the Pittsbunr Bulletin. In the farthest southeastern island of the Phillipiue group. Mindinao, upon one of its mountains. Parag. in the neighborhood of the highest peak in the island, the volcano Apo, a party of botanical and ethnographical explor ers found recently, at the height of 2.500 feet above the sea level, a colossal flower. The dis coverer, Dr. Alexander Rchadenberg. could scarcely believe his eyes when be ?aw amid the low growing bushes the immense buds of this flower, like gigantic brown cabbage heads. But he was still more astonished when he found a specimen in full bloom, a five petaled flower, nearly a yard in diameter?as large as a car riage wheel, in fact. This enormous blossom was borne on a sort of vine creeping on the ground. It was known bv the native who ac companied Dr. Schadenberg, who called it Bo-o. The party had no scale by which the weight of the flower could be ascertained, but they improvise d a swinging scale, using their boxes and speci mens a* weights. Weighing the**.* when oppor tunity served, it was fnun<i that a single flower weighed over 22 pound*. It was impossible to transport the frer-h flower, so the travelers pho tographed it and dried a numb< r of its leave* by the heat of a tire. Dr. Schadenberg theu | sent the photographs and dri d specimens to ' the royal botanical gardens at Breslau. w here the learned director immediately recognized it as a species of rafflesia. a plant formerly dis covered in Suniaira. and named after the Eng lish governor. Sir Stamford Raffles. The new j flower was accordingly named BafHesia Scha denbergia. The five petals of this immense 1 flower are oval and creamy white, end grow around a center filled ?ith countless long violet hued stamens, thicker and longer 111 the fe- 1 male, or fertile flowers, than in the infertile. The fertilization is accomplished by insects, whose larva? breed in the decaying flesh of its thick petals. The fertilt flower develops a soft 1 berry-like fruit, in which cot-ntless seeds are , imbedded. The flower exhales a poisonous gas, even when first opened. ?? <*> - Couldn't Hoil Them Soft.
