Stand. ©» the Pinnacle of a 150-Foot Smokestack—Larue Crowd Gath er. Expecting; to See Him Leap to Death. Under the spell of religious excite- j ment Michael Folanski climbed to the , top of a 150-foot smokestack at the Illinois steel works. South Chicago, the other evening, and, clinging there, muttered prayers and shouted hymns preparatory to taking the leap which he fancied would land him in Heaven. He was rescued by John Sonalski, a fellow workman. Work was suspend ed in tha plate mill for half an "hour while the workmen watched the fren zied man climb the frail ladder to the top of the great chimney. Kolanski is 28 years old, and since his arrival from Poland a few years ago has made his home at 8730 Erie avenue. He was devoted to his reli gion, and recently his companions have become aware that he was not well balanced mentally when the question of religion was discussed. He did not show any disposition to be violent, however, until the other even ing while at work at the plate mill. He had been muttering prayers for some time, when he suddenly dropped his tools and cried: "My time has come. lam going to Heaven." With these words he darted from the mill and to the base of the great stack. Before any one could prevent it he was on his way up the frail ladder leading to the top. Gradually he mounted higher, and the songs and prayers he shouted apprized the watchers of the nature of the man's dementia. Those below expected that when he reached the top he would leap off and be dashed to death at their feet. The man paused at the top, and, clinging to the ladder with one hand, HE PRAYED AND SHOUTED. extended the other toward the sky. He prayed and shouted alternately. Several methods of rescuing him were considered. The plan to call the fire department was rejected for fear the excitement and noise would pre cipitate the leap. Finally, a man climbed part way up the ladder and spoke to the demented man in English, but the latter threatened to leap on the would-be rescuer, and the latter retreated. Sonalski had been a close friend of Folanski and concluded to make the attempt and started up the ladder, shouting to Folanski in Polish. The rescuer argued that in order to reach Heaven Folanski must pass through fire and water. The suggestion ap pealed to the demented man, and he al lowed the other to come to him. Thoße on the ground, who were unable to hear the conversation, feared that when the men came together a struggle would precipitate both to the ground. Sonalski's ruse prevailed, however, and the demented man followed him down the ladder in order that the "fire and water" test might be made. When they reached the bottom Folanski was oTerpowered and was tak.n to the hos pital of the steel company. When he arrived there he realized that he had been tricked and became so riolent that he had to be restrained by mechanical means. Later he was taken to the South Chicago Police station. There he was bound so as to prevent him from injuring himself. Quick Care for a Scald. Attempting to lift a boiler of hot water from the stove recently, Jennie Bossert, a 14-year-old girl of Rose Glen, Pa., was terribly scalded by letting it slip from her hands. Hearing the girl's screams, her mother ran downstairs and tore every piece of clothing from her body. Then she carried her daugh ter out to the garden, where the fa ther was working, and the suffering girl was covered with clay, leaving only her face exposed. This treatment had a magical effect and Jennie soon ceased crying. A physician who ar rived lates said that the remedy was the best that could have been applied, and undoubtedly saved the girl's life. The girl will be well in a few days. About a year ago Mrs. Bossert saved the life of a neighbor's child in a sim ilar way, and received a handsome re ward for it. The remedyv she says, was told to her by a German doctor. Turtle Attacks Fliherman. A curious fight took place a short time ago on the south branch of the Potomac. John Fisher, of Romney, W. Va., caught a 40-pound turtle. Just as he landed it the hook broke, and the turtle chased him all around the boat. The fight lasted ten minutes, Fisher defending himself with a pad dle, when the xurtle at last turned tail and flopped Into the water. Rheumatism—Catarrh, Are Blood Dis eases—Cure Free.

"Speaking of train robberies," said a veteran railroad man to a New Or leans Times-Democrat reporter, "did you ever hear that story about Maj. Patterson? The yarn is not new," he continued, "and I thought you might have heard it before: but it happens to be true, and is worth telling again. "Years ago the major was traveling on the railroad through western Kan j sas, when he fell into conversation with a very agreeable chap from St. l.ouis. Train robberies were frequent ! In those days, and When the conversa j tion finally turned to that subject the jjjKA r ' St. Louis man remarked that he had an excellent scheme for hiding his money In such an emergency. 'I sim ply put it under the sweatband of my hat,' he said, *and no robber in the world would ever think of looking there for cash.' With that he pulled off his hat and showed where he had $250 'planted' as he described. "About an hour later the train was suddenly halted while it was turning a lonely ravine, and in a few moments a masked man entered the car and be gan to systematically loot the passen gers, while two other robbers kept them covered with shotguns from the doors. When the fellow reached him the major looked up coolly and de clared he had less than a dollar in his pocket. 'Now, if you'U leave me that and my watch,' he said, 'I'll tell you something worth knowing: That fel low In the next seat has $250 under the sweat band of his hat.' 'All right I' said the robber, 'keep your watoh and chicken feed.' And he proceeded to confiscate the other passenger's cash. "When the agony was all over and the marauders had departed, the St. Ix>uis man turned around, bursting with rage and indignation. That was a dirty, low-down trick!' he reared, 'and I'm going tohoM you accountable for every cent of my money!* 'I ex pected you to, my friend,' replied the major, quietly, 'and here Is the amount. You see,' he added, 'I happen to be a paymaster in the United States army, and I have a matter of $40,000 in this valise by my feet. Under the circum stances I felt justified in temporarily sacrificing your little $250 to divert at tention. I shall charge it up to the government as 'extra expense ia trans portation of funds.'" THE PARACHUTE MONK. Promoter of a New Diversion T.lla How the Little Simian Aero naut. Are Trained. Paul Howse, of Chicago, has cornered the monkey market of the United States. He is the originator of the parachute descent of the simians from balloons. He began in the middle of the summer with one monkey and now has a score on the road, and orders enough to utilize a score more, but there are no more monkeys to be had. Paul never saw a monkey outside of a MR. MONK'S DESCENT. cage or on the box of a hand organ until he went into the aeronaut line. The graceful manner la which the' monks make the descent is a simple trick that he learned with hi* first simian. The little animal appear* to descend from its aerial heights with one hand grasping the trapese bar of the para chute and its body swinging free. "It's a Brazil nut that does the whole business," explained the promoter of the new diversion to a Chronicle re porter. "I have fonnd that a monkey will never let go of a Brazil nut. There is a circular hasp in the bar of the para chute. The monk's hand is put through it and a nut put In It. He grips on it and not even fright will cause him to relinquish it. Why does n't he reach for it with his other hand? The arm Is bandaged at the elbow aud he can't get It up." OASTOHIA. Bean th* j9 Tlw K ' rall * 8U Haw Ww,rs Sunday Excursions.

I.anabed and Clapped Her Handa While Tots Men Kouiihi for He* Love—Tried to Kill Her.elf When On. »«• Shot. The town of Pana, 111., had a sensa tion not long ago, and the correspoud | ent of the New York World says that I for all her sins of flirtation—and they are many—Tinnie Brandt has done tragic penance. To have seen one lover at the point of death and the rival who ju-st failed of murdering hire fleeing for his life —to have endured the agony of sui cide, only to face life aguln aud the pain of an accusing conscience—this was her.portion. Not many weeks ago Miss Brandt came from her home in the eastern part of the state to visit her friend, Miss Sholen. Here she met Charles Ackerman and George Lodge. She •miled on both with impartial sweet ness. Each one fell deeply in love with her. Day hy day this interesting situa tion became more complex. As each made love to Miss Brandt she, with bewitching gentleness, permitted him to believe that his feeling was re in short, she was having the best time of her life, but it had to end, for she was about to leave Pana. How to end it was a problem. "Lovers' lane," she remembered, was the beautiful driveway along whose borders lovers had for years met and kissed and renewed their troth. So •he wrote two notes, her naughty eyes sparkling as she compared them. One was addressed to Charles Acker man, bidding him to be at Lovers* lane at 8:15 on a certain evening. The other conveyed the same message to George Lodge. When the night came the three met. "Boys," said Tinnie, "I am going home to-morrow. I have told you SHOT BY HIS FRIEND. both I love you—and I do. But I can't mary both. Do you see? I want you to take off your coats right now and have a fair fist fight—and I will mar ry the winner." There was nothing to do but com ply. The manner in which it was done was described as follows by George Lodge: "To tell the truth. I hadn't much doubt that I could get the better of him. Tinnie sat on the ground and clapped her hands—the prettiest creature you ever saw! "Charley landed one good blow on my face, but after that I had him practically beaten, when he man aged to reach hi* hip pocket. I sup pose he was orazed, just as I was, but the next minute there was a flash aud I was on the ground with Charlie's bullet in my thigh. "Tiunie realized how serious the af fair waa and came over to me. Charlie had disappeared —run through the buahea. "Then ahe ran away, .too. That cut me up worse than having Charlie draw his revolver —and we'd been chums all our life. But I think it waa because the girl saw how badly she had treated us boys that she ran home. "I didn't think of that then, though, and lay there hoping I might die, whea a man came along and helped me home. Next morning I heard that Tinnie had taken morphine, but that the doctors had prevented her death. "Shall I prosecute Charlie for hav ing shot me? No, indeed! I think he's gone to Alaska, believing himself a murderer, and then—well, perhaps I'm grateful for the lesson I learned.** Won. Bneountera a Snake. As an example of personal coolness under trying circumstances Mrs. Klein top, of Stroudsburg, Pa., gives an in teresting exhibition. She went to a wood box outside the kitchen door, and was piling stick* on her arm, when a pilot snake nearly five feet long be gan to coil around her arm, whioh was bare below the elbow. Without moving a muscle or raising her voice Mrs. Klelntop oalled her husband's atten tion to the snake. He, with a corn knife, severed its bead from the body.
