It Is unpleasant to be held up at tha
point o? a pistol, especially when the pta
tol is your own property. Albert Sevcik.
who recently purchased an interest in the
Parlor bakery oa Pike street, had such an
experience Sunday nignt, but he managed
to derive considerable satisfaction out of
the unpleasmtrt-ss because the robber
faiied to get s3t»' that was within reach,
j Mr. Sevcik occupies room 3> at the Cleve
i lar.d house. «wJ<S Pike street. He went to
his nx-rn about 10 o'clock at night and got
Into bed. Thinking that he heard someone
breathing under the bed he arose, turned
on the ai i took a look. There was
a man tnere, and the worst cf It was ne
held a pis:oi pointed straight at Mr. Sew
elk's h^ad.
"Throw up your "ands." said the burg
lar. Up went Mr. Sevcik'» hands. "What
are you going to d*?" asked the man as
he fingered the triggw. Mr. Sevcik saw
that he was looking at his own pistol and
concluded in his own nind that he would
g.'t jut of the unpleasant predicament as
easily as possible.
"I am going to iet you out of the room."
replied Mr. Sevcik.
"I will let myself out," replied the burg
lar. "You stand in the middle of the room
and keep quiet." Tb?n the burglar crawled
out from under the bed and walked away
wsthou: saying "good night." ftht-n
the room was examined it was discovered
that only two filk handkerchiefs and the
pistol were missing. Mr. Sevcik's coat was
hanging on a nail and in the inside pocket
was s3uo in cash.
HOBO SMITH THE SLASHER.
Before Jnitlre Inner noli He Waltea
Preliminary Hearing.
Formal proceedings charging Georse
Smith with attempting to kill Ben L>e
Camp wi-h a razer were instituted yester
day afternoon be tote Justice of the Peace
Ingersoll. After Constab e Ptke read the
warrant Assistant Prosecuting Attorney
Hart recited the contents of the complaint.
Bmnh took things very cooily ani simply
said that he d sired to waive a prelimin
ary examination. Justice Ingen-'tfl fixed
Smith's bonds at I 2,0"0. in default of which
he was committed to the county jail.
Thomas McKeen, who was with Smith
at the time the desperate hobo attempted
to cut De Camp's head off because he
w >uld not give him a nickel, was held as a
witness. His bonds were fixed at $730 and
of course he had to go to Jail, pending the
trial, which will be called up as soon as
I»e Camp is able to be out of Providence
hospital.
It was learned last evening that Smith
attempted to assault City Jailer Corbett a
month or so ago with a razor, while he
was being tak* n to police headquarters.
If the state brings this out In connection
uith the trial for attempting to kill De
Camp, It will go a long way toward estab
lishing the allegation that Smith is ad
dicted to the habit of slashing with his
rator.

Special Correspondence
MINNEAPOLIS. Dec. 17,-Charles A.
Piilsbury, the flour king, consented yes
terday to be interviewed on the subject of
dollar wheat and the outlook for future
prices of that cereal. The following in
terview was submitted by Mr. Pillsbury
and by him corrected:
"The present condition of the wheat
market," said he, "is attributable to
causes which. In my opinion, will keep
the price of that commodity at higher
prices than the average for the past few
years for many years to come. As a mat
ter of fact, we have unconsciously been
consuming both a visible and an invisible
supply at a greater rate than we sup
posed. so that at present the visible and
invisible aupply is at the lowest point
known in the history of the wheat mar
kets.
"This fact would have been evident long
ago had it not been for the Increased ta
cillties of transportation whi b have ena
bled us to handle a small supply so as to
place it on the market with great, rapid
ity at points where it was most seriously
needed, but apparently the limit in this
direction has bven reached, and with the
bread eaters of the world increasing in
number as rapidly as they have in the past
few years the time must Inevitably come
when production must be greater in or
der to supply the legitimate demand.
"Too much stress has been laid, I think,
upon the par. that the failure of the crop
in the Argentine Republic has played in
the upward tendency of the price of
wheat, for it must be remembered that
the total crop of that country does not
equal the crop grown in any one of our
own states of Minnesota, Kansas and
North Dakota.
"To these states we must look in this
country for increased acreage and pro
duction. They are the great wheat pro
ducers. and their farmers only require the
stimulus of a settled price at a high fig
ure, due to a constant demand, to induce
them to plant more extensively than they
are now doing. It is obvious that it is to
the western and not the central states
that we must look in this country for
more wheat.
"The eastern farmers will need con
stantly more and more land for grazing
and agricultural purposes, and they can
not hope to compete with :he fertile and
practically boundless territory of the
great states thai 1 have mentioned. It is
equally certain that the western farmer
would not feel Justified in planting to the
extent that present conditions s- -'m
to demand if he thought that the demand
was to be temporary, but it is easiiyldem
or.strated and may be confidently pre
dicted that the demand will be constant
and will gr -w. rather than decrease
"Only recently the Japanese government
has been taking steps looking to the ex
tensive Introduction of as a food
to supplant the rice diet tha - has i>een
the staple of that country for centuries.
This is only one instance of the new mar-

kets that must inevitably open as man be
comes more thoroughly under 'he dom
ination of European customs and habits.
"The Japanese have, tt is said, ascribed
to the rice diet the small stature of the
people of that race. Be that as it may,
one thins Is sure, thai wheat contains in
its kernel ail the essentials for the most
wholesome food that mankind can as
similate. This is demonstrable not only
by the chemistry of food, hut by the ex
perience of those race* that have used
wheat in some form as their staple diet.
"From this fact it is evident that as the
peoples who now tie outside of the more
modern civilization come within its pale
there will inevitably come a time when
they will conform in diet as well as in
legislation, costume and details to
their elder brethren, and when this hap
pens wheat will of course tak* its place
at the head of the dietetic, scale.
"This means that the demand which
now forces wheat to will continue as
a permanent factor to be counted upon,
and when the wheat grower is fuliv as
sured of this fact he will not be tardy In
laying his plans to plant as many more
acres as he foresees will find a purchaser
in the markets of the world.
"America is the country to which th<" na
tions of the future must look for th<=lr
supply of this commodity, for India and
Russia. though they have increased their
acreage, have about reached their limit,
and in Ensrland the wheat crop has di
minished instead of kveping abrtast of
thf growing demand.
"I have said that wheat contains all the
essentials for a perfect diet, and I should
like here to explain why, if this be true,
it should not be eaten entire Instead of
being separated, as it is when made into
flour or any preparation other than the
whole gTain Itself.
"This is because no nation ever at
tempts to live solely upon wheat. Other
foods— fish, meat, lentils and so on—are
taken In connection with the product of
wheat itself, and it is therefore not only
necessary, but undesirable, that the whole
*rain should be consumed. Otherwise,
in the attempt to gain variety, th' re
would be an excess of nutritive qualities
that is quite as much to be avoided as a
deficiency of those qualities.
"I h«v«» endeavored to show what, in
my opinion, are th»» causes which have
led to the present market rat» of wheat
and what the causes will be which will
maintain this rite, and inf<»remially this
means that America must ultimately tak*»
her place as th" (treat icrnnary and mill
of th<* civilized nations of world.
"Of course it would be irr.S'OS'Mble, if
ray views are correct, and the entire pop
ulation of the whole world become b>-c.ad
eaters, for any production of wheat, hr w
f»ver preat. to «upply th«» demand. That
difficulty will be in all probability by
still further advances alone the Itr.c of
rapid transportation, so that when meant
of distribution are perfected there n*ed
be no fear of a bread famine in any quar
ter of the globe."
1577 he retired from active business, rn
rap.r.g only as director of several enter
prises.

The moei a«tonishing contributions to
science xix many a long year ar* cocitrt ' -
uted by Dr. Sven H«din, a young Swed
ish Mvaat, who has just returned to
Stockholm after a four years' sojourn in
what have hitherto been considered in
accessible. portions of Central Asia. The
facts which Dr Hedin brine* t>ack to us
are so marvelous a* to more than astonish
and thev utterly upset cherts fced theories
of m*ny savants.
The expioter found buried cities of whlc li
the world had never heard. He ieart • J
of the existence of great bodies of wai. r
of which even the most learned in ths
science of geography never dreamed. He
found great herds -f wild animals, he saw
thousands .ixsa thousands of camels with*
out owners, he ascended to heights hith
erto considered beyond the reach of m «n.
and he encountered a catalogue of dan
gers which make one shudder to hear <»t.
Dr. Hedin headed an expedition of which
he was the only European, which w,a
backed by King Oscar of Sweden and a
number of o;her wealthy persons inter
ested in explorations. He was absent a
trifle less than four years and though I
suppose tha outside world has no: learned
of it to any extent, he was accorded al
most .is toyal a wei -ome in Sweden as w
Dr. Nan sen himself. Indeed, it is a qu« s
tion if the facts which he reveals io the
world ar® of net vastly greater import
ance than those told us by Xantsen. it Is
possible for many Europeans to now pene.
trate tha district through which Hedin
traveled, and It is likely in time to piove
a find of tremendous importance to com
merce.
I'he information here given has b»-en
rather guarded from the public for ta«»
re«c->n that Dr. Heiiin proposes to lea\e
a literary monununt to his r-ff orts. Six'y
two tinies. he told me. lie had to defend
h;s life against the inhabitants of th tt
section of Asia :hi"ugh which he trav
eled, who not only sought to kill hitn t.-»
obtain possession of what he had. but he
cause they objected to outsid-.-rs learn;;;g
the nature of the country. ,
The inhabitants, he found, were fierce
and warlike, and professing allegiance to
none beside their chiefs. The majority of
them claimed to be utterly ignorant of
the great nations of The wnrld. and de
clared that no force could i>e brought
against them so strong they could rot
« onqu«r it. They spoke a language i.«r -■>-
thing like a combination ..f kus«:au .• 1
Chinese, though did Dr. M ■ fin
find traces of a mixture of blood. In ip-
<■ these people were distinctly Tar
taric. and the explorer tieJievfs they .ce
descended from the s-atne famile s tl <t
bred the present inhabitants of the K , i
sian steppes.
One thing the doctor noticed, and that
wis that the women of all the tribe? w. r»
exceptionally beautiful, and were treated
by the men with exceeding respect. This
is all the more interesting from the f«t; t
that St is almost the first Instance. lit
which any explorer ever discovered th.it
among persons apparently ignorant of civ
ilization and Us nays, women held a place
so n* ar akin to that she maintains in the
civilised wond.
Dr. Hedin left Stockholm in October,

and April. 1894, he marched over the Pa
