TH MUBOEBS IN ThAe mmntal features discoursed of as the anatltical Sare in themnselves, but little Sus eeptibie of analysis. We appreciate them only in thair effects. We know of them, among other tbings, that they are always to their posmemsr, wehen inordiately poe gssed, a'source of the liveliest enjoyment. As the strong man exults in his physical ability, delighting in such exercises as call his muscles into action, so glories the ana lyst In that moral activity with disentan les. He derives pleasure from even the mnost trivial occupations bringing his talents into play. He is fond of enigmas, of conundrums, of hieroglyphics, exhibiting In his solutions of each a degree of acumen wrhich appears to the ordinary apprehen ion preternatural. His results, brought about by the very soul and essence of method, have. in truth, the whole air of Ill tuition. The faculty of resolution is post bly muh Invigorated by the matea tal stiudy, and especially by that highest branch et It which, unjustly, and merely on ae m,unt of its retrograde operations, has been called, as if par excellenoe, analysis.

A dispatch from Ann Arbor, Mich., yee terdlay says: Prof. Fraricis Kelsey, head of the Latin department of the American Classical School at Rome, Italy, and author of many Latin text-books, lies at the point of death from a strange affection of the liver. An operation, which has just been performed, may save his life. Prof. Kelsey's liver was found full ot c3sts infected with germs. The operation was removing these cysts, but many could not be removed. The surgeons say that the case is the first of the sort In the United States in nine years, and the eighteenth case known of in the world. E R7E MORG, A LL A W?OLB more deidp- and mere- usflly taske by the uno.tentatione gae ef draugts than by' all the elabesata#fvelity of A. In this latter, where the piees have direqp ent and bizarre motions, with various and variable values, what is only complex is mistalken (a not umusual eror) for what Is prototad. The attention Is here called powerfully into play. If it 11ag for an in stant, an oversight isecommlttd resulting in injury or defeat. The pesbemoves be ing not only manifold b$involut9. the chances of such oversight are multiplied; and in nine case out of ten It -is the more concenitrated rather than .the more aente player who cnquers. In desudrt;, on the contrary, where the moves are unique and have but little vauiation, the probabilities of inad'vertenoe are daiedi. anf~ the mere attention bein.g left .ecwniaratively un employed, what advantages are obtained by' either party are obtained by superior acumen. To be lem abstract-4ot us sup pose a game of draughts where the pleces are reduced to four kings, and t;hers, of course, no oveisight ls to be expected.

Arrow smith will leave here in a few days for Baltimore, where she fe to be overhauled and put In thorough order for the Colonial Beach route nex;t summer. The steamer Is to be practically rebuilt and Improvements are to be made in machinery that will en able her to make exceptionally fast time to the Beach. She will, It Is stated, be mod ernized In many particulars and she will be equipped with an electric lighting plant. The material for the rebuilding of the wharf at Glymont, Md., is at hand and the work on the wharf will commence early next week. The wharf now at Glymont will be replaced by an entirely new struc ture. The easterly storm of yesterday prevent ed the fishermen In the bay and on the At lantic coast near Norfolk from working their nets and as a consequence the sup ply of deep sea fish was but fair this morn Ing. Some few fish were on hand from the nets in the river and prices this morning were as follows: For salmon trout, 8 to 9c. per pound; flounders, 4 to 5c. per pound; Potomac black bass. 10 to 15c. per pound; North Carolina black bass, 6 to 10c. per pound; green pike, 6 to 8c. per pound; pan rock, 7 to 8c. per pound; medium rock, 10 to 12c. per pound; boiling rock, 12 to 15c. per pound; tailors, 5 to 6c. per pound; bluefish, 7 to 8c. per pound; white perch, 8 to 12c. per pound; white perch, small, 10 to 15c. per bunch; yellow perch, 10 to 40c. per bunch; mullets, 10 to 25c. per bunch; cat fish, large. 2D to 35c. per bunch; catfish, small, 10 to 15c. per bunch; carp, 15 to 40c. each; eels, 5 to Sc. -each; gray trout, $8 to $10 per barrel, and butterfish, $6 to $8 per barrel. The stock of oysters on hand at the 11th street oyster wharf this morning was not large, but the demand was not heavy and the stock was ample. Prices range about the same as yesterday, the small oysters selling at 45 to 50 cents per bushel and ranging from that up to 60 oents per bushel. The United States lighthouse engineer's steamer Jessamine is crusing on Chesapeake bay, making repairs necessary at the differ ent light stations, preparatory to the coming winter season. She will visit -the light houses on the Potomac shortly. The little two-masted schooner Farmers' Friend, laden with wood and lumber for this city, went ashore on the mud flats off Fort Foote, Md., yesterday, and at dark last night was still hard and fast aground. It is expected she will fBoat at high water today and will be able to resume her trip to this city. General Matters. The steam launch Santa Barbara, the tender from the naval proving grounds at Indian Head, Md., was in port yesterday on business connected with the proving ground. The dredge Alice Vivian, which is 'em ployed in the work of improving the Wash ington barracks, was out of service for a short time yesterday while some minor re p airs were being made to her machinery. ork has been resumed and is being pushed night and day. Capt. Joseph Smith, commander of the Weems line steamer Potomac, who has been visiting his home at Leedstown, Va., has returned and is again -on duty on his steamer on the Washington and Baltimore route. Mr. Daniel Wirt of Wirt's wharf, West moreland county, Va., was a passenger on the steamer Wakefield on her last trip up the river. Mr. Wirt is on his way to Cedar Key, Fla., to engage In business. Mr. Edward A. Weiss of the Randall line Is confined to his home on East Capitol street by a return of the Cuban fever, con tracted while with the District of Colum bia National Guard in Cuba. Mr. Augustus Dean, who has been quite sick at his home in Alexandria, is reported much better. The schooner Alice Carlisle has arrived in port with a full cargo of pine lumber from a Virginia port for the dealers. The sailing barge Daniel is in port with a cargo of cord wood from Glymont for Georgetown. The James H. Beach, with oysters for Alexandria, and the Plimmie E. Smith, with a like cargo for this city, have arrived from the lower Potomac. The ram schooner Harlan W. Huston is unloading her cargo of North Carolina pine lumber at the wharf foot of 13th street southwest. The two-masted schooner James B. Ander son is unloading a cargo of lumber at the wharf foot of 11th street southwest. The rumor that Sandow, the strong man, was among the passengers lost on the ate4mship Elingamite is denied in London. there Is nothing of a similayr nature so greatly tasking the faculty of analysis. The best chess player In Christendom may be a little more than the best player of chess; but proficiency in whist implies capacity for success in all these more important un dertakings when mind struggles with mind. When I say proiency, I mean that pei fection in the game which include, a comn prehension of all the sources' whence legiti mate advantage may be derived. These are not,only manifold, but multiform, and lie frequently among recesses of thought alto gether inaccesslible to the ordinary under standing. To observe attentively Is to re member distinctly; and, so far, the concen trative chess plyer will do very well at whist; while the rules of Hoyle (themselves based upon the mere mechanism of the game) are sufficiently and generally comn prehensible. Thus to have a retentive memory, and to poceed by ''the book,"~ are points comImonly regarded as the sum total of good playing - But It is -in matters- he yond the limits of mere rule that the skill of the analyst is evlce. He makes, in silence, a host of observh.ina and infer enoee. So, perhaps, do his companions; and the dEiernce In the extent of the In formation obtained lies not so much in the -salidity of the inference as In the quality of the observation. The necessary knowl edge is that of what to observe. Our pla er confines himself not at all; nor, bws the game is the object, does he reject de ductions from things external to the game. He examines the countenance of his partner, comparing It carefully with that of each of his opponents. He considers the mode of assorting the cards in each hand; often counting trump by trump, and honor by honor, through the glances bestowed by their holders upon each, He notes every variation of face as the play progressea, gathering a fund of thought from the dif ferences in the expression' of certainty, of surprise, of -triumph or chagrin. From the manner of gathering up a trick he judges whether the person taking It can make' an other in his suit. He, recognises that if pyed through feint, by the air with whiob Itis thrown upon the table.

In his paper on the almahiouse care of t insane in Maryland, Dr. Preston, who secretary of the state lunacy commissic characterized as disgraceful the conditi4 of a great many of the so-called county I sane asylums, where, it was stated, many instances the care of insane patien was entrusted to partree w4o were in i wise competent to handle such cases. was stated that physicians, who usual live a distance from t.he.asylume, were e pected to make occastonal visits to the I stitutions, but that they were seldom wit In reach when their services were mo needed. Another wron$ Ior which a rem dy was proposed was tA.t of doing awi with the political aspqgt of the questio It was stated that in ,@Lny cases those charge of the asylums were political a pointees, who knew more about crops thl of the care of sick peoplek. Or. Preston er phasized the necessity of the state carli for the insane. On motion of Dr. Billing lea, a committee was appointed to bring t1 matter to the attention of the state legisl ture, with the view of having that bo( make appropriations for state asylu= where the Insane could be placed und competent alienists. Dr. Thayer spoke of the -necessity for ge ting complete statistics concerning tuberc losis in the state and appealed to the bo( for co-operatton in this most importa work. He advocated the importance impressing upon the state legislature tj necessity of having state sanitariums f the care of tuberculosis -patients. Papers were read by Dr. Stewart Pato Dr. H. 0.

Was Onea of the Cuzbu s Most 3: pert Patent Lawyers, George Harding, who fdr years wan look< upon as the country's most expert pate attorney, died Monday 16 New York city. All of Mr. Harding's life, and he was his seventy-sixth year, had been spent Philadelphia. He was the son of Jasp Harding, proprietor and publisher of t] Pennsylvania Inquirer, now the Philad4 phia Inquirer, for many years. Willis Harding, an elder brother, succeeded I father In control of the paper, and anoth brother, J. Barclay Harding, was one the original owners of the Evening Tel graph. His sister, Rebecca Harding Day the writer, Is the wife of L. Clarke Dav editor of the Philadelphia Ledger. Richa Harding Davis, is his nephew. Mr. Harding was noted lor the metho he used in arguing patent suits. T] Morse case was one of his earliest potal ones. In the conduct of this he hd mi lature lines of telegraph set up in t] court room, so that he might illustrate 1 points graphically. He found such a det onstration so successful that he made u of similar ones in other cases, notably t] McCormick reaper trial, in which he h a small grain field spread In the court rooi In that ce.use he was associated as coun. with Abraham Lincoln and Edwin M.

A day or two ago ti. they spent a little over half a day in hunt in Irg and succeeded in bagging thirty-five. p- It is stated that the grand jury for the tn November term of the circuit court for this a- county will break all previous records of ig the court in the matter of the number of s- indictments returned. It has been in ses ie sion eight days and more than one hindred L- true bills have already been found. It is 1y thought probable that the jury will be i.n s, session the greater portion of the present er week, and as there are aboust one hundred witnesses yet to be examined many more t- Indictments will likely be returned. Ji- Most of the indictments are for violations ly of the local option law, in whici cases the at Montgomery County Anti-Saloon League A has shown unusual activity. It is under ie stood that nearly every proprietor of a )r "speakeasy" in the county has or will be Indicted, while some will have to answer n, a number of charges. If all of these cases R. are tried it is thought that nearly all of the as well-known establishments will be com Rt. pelled to permanently close, but, judging r. from the past action of the court, it is more r. than probable that not more than one or r. two cases against each will be -tried, and n, that atter the adjournment of court the offenders will prosecute their illegal busi t- nesses with their usual boldness. ,I WILCOX CASE XOVED. L He Will Not Be Tried Again at Eliza a beth City. )y A dispatch from Elizabeth City, N. C., last 9' night says: Judge Fred Moore, presiding at the November term of Pasquotank superior court, has decided not to try James Wilcox again in this city. Wilcox, it will be re membered. was convicted of the murder of I- Ella Cropsey in this city, but the supreme court, upon appeal, granted him a new tatrial. at After reading affidavits from botb sides and hearing arguments of counsel, Judge in Fred Moore decided to remove the Wilcox case to some county on this side of Albe In marle. He announced that he would name er the county during the present term of ie court. Wilcox appears greatly pleased at the de cision in favor of removal. It is thought either Gates, Perquimans or Is Chowan county will be named by the judge. Dr When the former trial took place in the Df court house here feeling ran high, and there e- were even threats of lynching Wilcox. Dur s, ing the trial the people showed their preju s, dice against Wilcox in maty ways, making rd demonstrations in the court room in spite of the efforts of the presiding judge to pre Is serve order. At last when Attorney E. F. ie Aydlett was making the principal speech in le defense of Wilcox the court house bell and - the bells of the town were rung in a false le alarm of fire that seriously interfered with is his speech and caused the crowds to rush a- from the court room. se An ,appeal was taken to the supreme ie court, and on these and other grounds the Ld court granted Wilcox a new trial. n It is to avoid the possibility of such hos ei tile demonstrations that Judge Moore has . decided not to try the case a second time in Elizabeth City.

Woman Baya Three Persons Were 90 looted, but Killed Themelves. The New York Tribune of today says: Mrs. Lena Doxhekmer of No. 1115 Willow avenue, Hoboken, tells a story of plots to assassinate President Roosevelt. These plots, she says, were hatched by the an ardhists with whom she used to associate. She first told her tale in a moment of re ligious fervor to the Mothers' Club of the First Methodist Church of Hoboken on last Thursday. In her association with anarchists she says she learned of a plot to kill the Presi dent one year ago. The d,rawing of lots resulted in the task falling upon a young Frenchman, named Melov. He arrived in this country from England about Christmas, and she was one of those to meet him. She had long talks with him afterward, and tried to dissuade him from carrying out the plan. He at first threatened to denounce her, but ended by listening to her appeals. He finally told her, what she already knew, that his life was forfeited. If he killed the President he wouFld be executed; if he refused or failed, it was death by suicide or to be killed by the order. He finally consented to return to France, and it was arranged that if he saw death was Inevitable he would kill himself in such a manner that it would be considered an ac cident by all who did not know. He went back, and some weeks later was killed on the streets of Paris, epparently by accident, but really, Mrs. Doxheimer says, by his own choice. She was next told that, Melov having failed, a new lottery had been drawn. This time a man named Muller, or Mueller, liv ing in Avenue A, at No. 143, 145 or 147, New York city, had been chosen. A few days later this cnan4was found dead from poison, self-adminIstertd. Another lottery indicated a woman named Schroeder, living in Har lem, was chosen, and she also ended her life by poison. This occurred about the time that her former associates became wary In telling her of their doings. She says that for eighteen years she was an anarchist, unknown to her husband, hav ing early In life made the acquaintance of Emma Goldman. To a Tribune reporter last evening she told In detail of the attempt on Roosevelt's life. She said: "Shortly before Melov's arrival I received a circular letter written in cipher telling me of the plot to murder the President. The time selected was November 15 last, and the place was New Haven, where Presi dent Roosevelt attended the biennial cele bration of Yale College. I gave the circular letter to my minister, the Rev. Charles L. Meade, and, after translating it, he Imme diately went to New York and placed it in the hands of Chief Quinn of the secret service men. I met Melov later, and he said he knew he was being hounded by the police." The Rev. Mr. Meade was surprised when he learned that Mrs. Doxheimer's story was public property. He refused to say any thing, however, beyond confirming Mrs. Doxhelmer's statement. WILL BUILD MORE TRACKS. President Cassatt's Plan to Believe Congestion on Pennsylvania. A 16ect1 to the New York World from Pittsburg, Pa., yesterday, says: A. J. Cas satt, president of the Pennsylvania railroad; Robert Pitcairn, his local assistant, and other officials of the road met here today and decided that there was only one way to relieve the present freight congestion-that is, to build more tracks. Just as soon as it Is possible, work on these additional tracks will be commenced, and in the meantime every effort will be made to overcome pres ent conditions. This and other improve ments contemplated will involve an expend iture of millions. The blocks on the lines west of Pittsburg will be cleared before work on the lines east Is undertaken. A systematic effort was begun last Saturday, and it was reported this morning that great headway was made. All the westbound freight will be handled first. Seventy freight trains averaging fifty cars were moved on the lines west yester day, and during the entire day between 6,000 and 7,000 tons of freight were handled hourly. Scores of empty cars which have been lying west of Pittsburg are today be ing placed on the Panhandle tracks ready to -be loaded with coal. Transportation officials at the Union sta tion are spending the nights in their offices receiving reports of outgoing freight and aiding In making up the shipments for the. west. New engines are being furnished to the -company as fast as possible, and the equipment Is continually being increased. The Baltimore and Ohio officials said this morning that their lines were practically clear. They are using a number of bor rowed engines and cars. The Pennsylvania, in order to relieve congestion on the main line between Philadelphia and Pittsburg, will build a low grade freight line from the Susquehanna river to the Delaware. The line Will cost about $3.000,000, will call for a new bridge across the Susquehanna, and will be completed within two years. "He is a ve'y little fellow, that's true, and would do better for the Theater des Varietes." "There can be no doubt of that," I re plied, unwittingly, and not at first observ ing (so much had I been absorbed in re flection) the extraordinary manner in which the spesjer had chimed In with mn,y medita tions. In an instant afterward I recollected myself and my astonishment was profound. "Dupin," said I, gravely, "this Is beyond my comprehension. I do not hesitate to say that I am amazed and can' sca,rcely credit my senses. How was it possible you should know I was thinking of-" Here I paused to ascertain beyond a doubt whether he really knew of whom I thought. "Of Clian'tilly," said1 he. "Why do you pause? You were remarking to yourself that his diminutive figure unfitted him for tragedy." This was precisely what had formed the subject of my reflections. Chantilly was a quondam cobbler of the Rue St. Denis, who, becoming stage mad, had attempted the role of Xerxes in Crebillon's tragedy, so called, end been notoriously pasquinaded for his pains. "Tell me, for heaven's sake," I exclaimed, "the method, If ,method there Is, by which you -have been enabled to fathom my soul In this matter." In fact, I was even more startled than I would have been willing to express. ''It was the fruiterer," replied my friend, "who brought you to the conclusion that the mender of soles was not of sufficient height' for Xerxes et Id genus omne." "The fruiterer! You astonish me. I knew no fruiterer whomsoever." "The man who ran up against you as we entered the- street--it may have been some fifteen minutes ago."

Corfespondenee LoAdon Expreu. If you tell a Venetian that his old town 2@ crumbling he will grow blue in the face. Then he will sputter and gesticulate and make grimaces such as only a terribly ex cited foreigner can make; after which he will regard you with a pair of eyes over flowing with commiseration. The Venetian Is the most Inexorably civic-proud peren on the face of the earth. The Chicagosa who swells to a bursting point In speaking of him stockyards and his skyscraper build ings is a mere amateur boaster compared to the son of Venice. For the Venetian there is only one spot worth seeing, one place worth promenading and being seen In, and one haunt for day and night, and that Is the pigeon-strewn Piazza, which only recently echoed the mel ancholy sounds of the faling Campanile. Naturally, therefore, the Venetian feels hurt at the suggestion that within a century or so there will be nothing left of his beloved and beautiful -city of the sea save rubbishy heaps of Byzantine bricki and broken stat uary. He waves you away v. ith the words-Lter he has calmed down enough to speak them that Venice was reported to be crumbling in the days when Petrarch made stump speeches on the steps of the Doge's palace, and that nothing save the Campanile has come down since then. The Ruling Passion. Nevertheless, I am constrained to record the prophecy that if Venice does not soon put its houses in order a good many of them will go the way of the Campanile. The cult of Venice is to give itself an air of antiquity, no matter how modern. Newness, exterior cleanliness of buildings, repairs urgently needed, and paint pots are tabooed. No self respecting Venetian would ever dream of putting a coat of paint on the outside of his casa or his palazzo; nor would he dream of replacing a broken or strayed -brick, a crumbling stairway or a rotting door. The word sacrilege is writ large on those places where some hardy, unromantic, mod ern owner has dared to provide against the natural encroachments of time and weather by making ordinary repairs. There Is not a single palace along the entire length of the Grand canal whose lower story is not in a state of dire misery, rotten, moldy. crumbling and bare to the bone. The mar ble and plaster of the outer casings has dis appeared in the course of ages, and through the great gaps thus left you see the rubble and crumbling brickwork. Yet this In the very thing upon which Venice prides itself and swells its civic chest. "What!" cries the outraged dweller of the fairest spot on earth, "replace those stones? Plaster up those cracks and boles? NeverI Why, you will ask us to fill up the Grand canal next." Lest in Admiration. And so Venice goes on admiring Its time worn palaces, beautiful still In ther de generacy, without lifting a Age to prWvent what must be apparent to the merest tyrg in the art of construction of buildings. ru side, however, things are diftermt. There the spirit of renovation, repair, polishing and cleansing is virulent In the extreme. Go into any of the old Venetian palaces which look as if they were about to tum ble down, those houses which to the stran ger seem fit only for the a and hammer of the housebreaker, and, if you are fortunate enough to gain admission, you will And the most remarkable change imagInable. 'There you will see marble fooM painted ceilings, ggrgeous tapestries, priceless fur niture and rugs on all sides, maintained in the most exacting state of cleanliness and order. If Venice is beautiful on the outside, what then is it Inside, with its wealth of art treasures hidden behind swaying walls and rickety roofs? Somehow or other, the thing reminds me of a man who has his pockets crammed with precious jewels, while his legs are incased In ragged trousers and him boots look as If they had just been picked off a scrap heap. But it will probably be a long time before Venice witnesses the spectacle of its grand old palaces toppling into the adjacent canals. The present occupants are com paratively - safe from drowning by this method, while the present generation, the next, and the next will probably live to en joy the gorgeous place with its sunsets, its gondolas, and its glass-work hawkers with out endangering their lives.
