Rutland. Vt.. July :$. Investigation be
ing made by the Sheriffs oflicc relative to
the career of C. Itufus Young, the cham
Jilon horse thief of Vermont, who licil In
the County Jail as the rcult of Injuries
sustained at the time of his capture, are
developing some nton!hlng facts.
Sheriff Daniel I. Pea body, the eteran
horse-thief catcher, who captures Young
near Arlington, forty-two mile." south of
here, say.s that the man has spent thirty
two years of his1 1-ixty-s.ix years In differ
ent prions. and that stealing horses be
came such a mania with h;m that he would
go back to his old "trade" a. day after his
1 elease.
How many horses the man safely got
away with since he made stealing a profes
sion is not known, but it l believed that
he stole and sold them by the hundred. In
side of two months from the day he was
discharged from the State Prison at Wind
sor. Hay 16 last, scores of horses have been
missed, and It is believed that Young was
the thief in nearly every case.
Young began his career some time be
fore he attained his majority and kept at
it steadily until his death. He came of a
good family and at one time ran a hotel
near Troy. N". Y.. for the express purpose of
aiding a notorious gang in stealing horses.
He was eventually caught and sentenced to
prison. He no sooner got out than he again
allied himself with his old pals and horses
began to disappear. He was again capture 1.
this time in New York State, and sent to
Clinton Frison. In all he served twenty
two vears at Clinton and ten years at
The man was successful because of his
boldness. It 13 said of him that he feared
nothing and would always brave death
rather than capture. He was known to be
desperate, and whenever taken he put up a
fierce fight. The Yankee Sheriffs were,
however, too much for him, and this ac
counts for his long periods In Jail. His
mthod9 were unique and at times dazzling.

no matter where it happened to be. He has
lwen known to Jump Into a man 9 rig
while the owner was standing within ten

He practiced every known dodge to get
both horses and wagons, and invented new
ones. He got then! by stealth, subtlety and
force. He took them from church sheds,
town markets and stables. In nearly evrj

It is related that he once stole a thor

the roads were blocked by poses from sur
rounding towns, he left the horse In a near
by woods, went to the man from whom the
animal was stolen and got his dinner and a
hag of grain on the plea that he was a
member of one of the searching parties.
This he repeated three times, until the way
was clear for his escapee
At another time be stole a light bay horse
from a doctor and took It to a camp in tne
woods ten miles distant. There he dyed the
animal's coat black, and the following day
drove to the physician's house. He loimd

need of a good steed, and. after looking

he paid a round price for it.

No matter how hard pressed he might be
on the road, he would never overdrive a
horse. He preferred rather to desert tl'.e
snlrr.a; and take to the woods on foot.
Tho thief met his "Waterloo when Sheriff
Teabody got after him. The Sheriff Is well
in the seventies, but he Is still the most
skilled thief-catcher In the State. He is said
to be afraid of neither man. beast nor the
devil, and will ride the mountain reads a
week without sleep before he will give up a
good chase.
Early In the wek Young and a confeder
ate broke into the George Ruane barns at
the. Fair Grounds and stole Electioneer
Rex. a valuable stallion belonging to Ed
ward Bowman, and a thoroughbred mare
owned by Frank R. Blanchard. The mare
was hitched to a buggy and the thieves
drove south, leading the stallion. The Sher
iff was immediately notified and the chase
was begun.
The officers were exceptionally anxious to
get the thieves, as a horse belonging to
Eigar Dav! of Mill Village was taken and
abandoned tho week before. The horse had
hardly been returned to the barn before the
thieves returned and were making away
with the animal a second time when they
were put to flight by Davis's daughter.
The chase lasted two days and the offi
cers were beginning to think that the crim
inals had given them the slip, when thcy
came upon them near Arlington. It wa
nlcht and In the fight that followed several
fhots were fired. In the scrimmage the
thieves cot Into the woods and escaped.
Both horses were recovered and the roads
were watched.
The officers examined the horses and
found that both had been rubbed down, fed
and watered regularly and were none the
worse for the chase. It later developed that
Young had taken the animals into a thick
grove near the toll gate for the purpose of
cooling them off He might have driven on
and escaped, but he was too humane.
On the following morning, while the
Sheriff's posse was scouring the woods.
Young emerged from a copse near the spot
where the fight had occurred, and crawled
to the home of J. W. Tjnan. a farmer. He
was badly Injured Internally from a fall
from the wagon, but managed to stand up
and knock at the door. Mr. Tynan le
sponded, and Young inquired if the police
v.cre looking for horse thieves. The farm
er responded that they were, and then re
lated the events of the night before.
"Who's leading the pove?" asked Young.
"Old Sheriff Peabody." replied Mr. Tynan.
"Well, if it's the old Sherirt himself I
guess I'm about In." declared the visitor.
"I'm one of the thieves, and I reckon I'll
give rnvself up. Thcv never could get me
A, If I hadn't busted "omethlng inside of me.
mlt I haven't long to live, so lake me to the
J Sheriff." . .
It was several minutes before the farmer
realized that he had one of the much
sought thieves on his doorstep. Then he
hitched up a handsome mare and started
for Sheriff Wilson's house at Arlington.
The two men were no sooner in the buggy
than Young began to regard the mare with
covetous eyes.
"If I wasn t sick Id take that mare
nw-v from yon," he volunteered pleasantly.
"But you need have no fear, for I'm all in
Do'ctor W. S. Phillips examined Young
and said that there was little the matter
with him. so he was taken by train to the
Workhouse here. He still complained that
he was dving and the Jail physician". Doctor
E I Hall, made an examination. He con
curred with Doctor Phillips, and announced
that the thief would be well enough to send
"You mav think you are right, doctor, but

"I tell von I have but a few hours to live.

Lillie Belle Pierce, Plain-
tiff in the Suit to Share
Imboden's Wealth, Is
the Author of a
Temperance Play.
The signature. "Ij. Pierce nnd Wife." on
the register at the French Lick Springs Ho
tel In Indiana shows a remarkable res-ni-Wance
to such samples of the handwriting
ol Luther E. Imboden as are In the posses
sion of Lillie Deile Tierce, plaintiff in a .jiilt
to be declared the wife of Imboden and to
rhare In the larso estate left by him.
The name "Imboden" is found written on
tho flj- leaf of a volume entitled "Stolen
Waters." presented to 5Ils? Pierce by her
supposed husband, a book which will enter
Into the evidence of the cae. The ini'lals
"L. B. P.," representing the full name.
"LUlle Belle Pierce." are written upon the
cover of a box of chessmen, also presented
to the petitioner by the dead capitalist.
The general style of the "L" and the "P"
on the bo's and on the hotel register seems
to be identical.
The book. "Stolen Waters," it app.T,
was valued by Imboden and Jliss Pierce,
as Its contents bear somewhat on their own
case. It is a narrative, in a rambling verse,
which tells of the love of an unmarried girl
for a married man. It 1 a composition
credited to a "Cella Gardner."
The matter in it i- extremely romantic. It
winds up by the man. a Colonel Adair,
being released from his responsibilities by
his first marriage and rushing to the arms
of the "only woman he ever loved.'
The "moral" of the yam is defined in a.

deavor to show." proclaims Hiss Cella

which the father had never seen.
But Iteubcn and Simon get In their work.
The Squire begins coming hom late at

The upshot of this state of affairs Is that
the Squire becoms so heivily In debt to
Slade that the latter takes over all Ids
property. So the Village Pride, the baby
and the Squire are reduced to living In a
mere hovej. The third act opens in the
hovel. The Squire is over at tho tavern
rapidly getting drunk. His wife, at home.
"I wonder where Etlward Is this cold

ttory. Things went from bad to worse. It

The plot thickens at tho saloon. The
Squire wants "one more glass." but. as the
modern expression puts It. Is "stone broke."
Here's where Slnde comes in. "Give me

The Squire goes to his home. His wife Is

himself in the snow.
Now Slade exults once more. In lhese words he
speaks :
Well. wrll. Sweet May. our Vlllase Pride,
Thus I did my tlm abide.
Then does the Village Pride realize the
plot. She lohes Slade with all the epi
thets an angT.v woman can summon. Then
she draws a revolver. Slade knocks the pis

'Tis thus I did mv time abide.." The baby
Is transferred to his rightful owner, and
Slade "u Pinnies like the craven he Is."

the Squire contemplates blowing out his
brains. He lo sitting on an old tree with
the pistol to his head, when Joseph ap

members that at one time he had deeded all
his propertv to Edward the Second, and
that the Village Pride was given the pa

The solution Is at hand. Obviously, the
Squire had no right to sign away his goods
and chattels if he had already signed them
to somebody else. Consequently the booty
is wrested from Slade.
The outcome Is another "bower of bliss
for the lovers," one fortified against Simon
Sinde. who Is condemned to continually be

Interestiiifj Changes Made in West
minster Abbey.
London, July 25. A great Improvement
has recently been made In Westminster Ab
bey in connection with the celebrated Cor
oratlon Chair.
Tor many years past two chairs have
stcod side by side Immediately behind the
high altar of the church, facing the tomb
of St. Edward tho Confessor.
Tho larger of these chairs possesses, of
course, a meaning which to the Encllsh peo
ple can never b& less than sacred, for it
has descended to us from the davs of "the
gi eaten of the Plantagenets " himself, and
the old stone which it enshrintd unites our
Twentieth Century witli a hoary antiquity.
The other chair, commonly designated as
the "Queen's Chair." though by no means
lacking in interest, stands, of necessity,
upon an Infinitely lower level in historical
liatiortanee when-rnmnnrpil with Klne Ed-
Ward's chajr. It was manufactured for
yueen Mary II, who was crowned as Joint
sovereign with her husband. William 111.
At tbw tlmo nt tin, rnvnltittnn n ltx' the
j Prince of Orange absolutely declined to
gie way. or to occupy a position interior
in dignity to that of his wife. who. as the
oldest daughter of James II. had by no
means an inconsiderable claim upon the
crown of England.
Tho difficulty, therefore, could only be
solved by placing the two of them upon
a precisely equal footing. With this end in
view, it was necessary to furnish. In view
of tho coronation, the sreclal emblems of
sovereignty peculiar to a regnant monarch,
for tho Queen as well as the King. The
scepter and the orb with which Mary II
was duly invested may still be seen among
the recalia in the Tower of London.
It was also considered desirable for a
special chair to bo made, as nearly as pos
Mtle resembling King Edward's chair In its
general shape and details. Into this chair,
then. Queen Mary was lifted, and while
rcated there she was anointed and
crowned, instead of undergoing these ctre
rrcnles In a kneeling posture, like Queea
Alexandra and other Queen contorts.
This chair has now been removed to an
altogether different position. It stands in
the smull chape 1 nt the extreme eastern
end of King Henry VII's Chapel. It will
probably never be used again, seeing that
we nro never likely to behold a Queen
regnant simultaneously with a King. '
It ought to bo made perfectly clear, there
fore, that this chair is not the Queen's
chair at all. Properly sreaklng. It should
ui doubtedly be called Queen Mary's chair,
for It has never bcn rightfully occupied by
any Queen since the year 1633.
King Edward's chair now remains In sole
possession of the Chapel of the Kings. It
has been placed upon a wooden pedestal
similar in the character of its design to
the perpendicular pending of the Fifteenth
Century altar screen adjoining it.
Hero it occupies an infinitely more com
manding position than before. It at once

Here's a man who thinks he has heart disease, and is scared half to death.
His face is all drawn out of shape from fear and agony. Every time he eats,
his heart "palpitates" that simply means that his stomach is swelled up
with gases from fermenting undigested food, and his heart thumps against
his diaphragm. Nothing the matter with his heart. In the summer time,
this gas distention is much worse, his whole body and blood get over-heated,
and his heart and lungs get so crowded for room, that he gasps for breath.
There he is, look at him 1 Every minute he expects -to drop dead. As a
matter of fact, all he needs is to stop that souring and gas forming in his
stomach and bowels, help his digestion along, and keep cool inside. You
all know that whenever something rots or decays, heat develops. Sam
