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.

Fred Douglass Doesn't Like It.
HE OBJECTS TO TALK ABOUT THE ">"EORO PROB
LEM" IS THE SOUTH.
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."

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

stated that he learned* through overhearing a
conversation between Congressman Ashbel P.
Fitch, attorney of the Boss Brewers' associa

raising the boycott. Eck told him that fifteen

A Land Where They are fllven Away
and Killed When too Numerous.
From the Am^ricao Agriculturist for January.
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.

The death of Lord Scarborough three week*
?go. at the advanced age of eighty-six. will, it
i* said, lead to a revival by tne present peer of
the claim* of the family to the whole of the
property of the princely house of Orlesns. 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.
