Allen Pinkertdn^ famous as a de
tective,'and the founder, of the Pin
kerton Detective Agency, died at
his residence in Chicago, July 1st at
3:10 p« in.. Some weeks^ ago, while
on a visit to the south he contracted
malarial fever, which was.the cause
of his taking off. His father was
sergeant of police in Glasgow,
where the deceased was born in
1810. At the age of 22 he was
forced to leave England by his con
nection with the Chartist agitation,
lie rendered valuable service to this
country during the administration
of Abraham Lincoln.
John II. Wits and Owen McCabe,
two young men about eighteen years
old each, from Altoona, Pa., stole
their way west from Chicago in
freight cars, and were in a box car
that arrived at Lanesboro from the
east at 8:30 o'clock Saturday night.
Before the train had come to a stop
•Wits climbed out of the small end
door of the car the occupied, and
missing his footing, fell upon the
track and was cut to pieces. As he
struck the track he called to his
horror-stricken companion, and in
an instant more was crushed beyond
recognition. His remains were
buried by the local authorities.
Grand Forks, 7: The reports about

another Chicago lawyer, Col. John

his wife, and has since been giving
the case for the prosecution careful

case Ins been kept secret, but from
an interview granted your corres

that whatever skill and power can
accomplish will be brought to bear
to bring the guilty to punishment.
A strong case will be made—mur

not all the parties charged stand in
the same relation to the crime. Of

The Magnetic Girl.
Special Dispatch to the Tribune.
New York, July 6.—The stage at
Wallack's Theater looked, for a time,
this afternoon as if a cyclone had
struck it.. Half a dozen men swing
ing to one chair, went carrousing
against the spectators on the stage,
upsetting furniture and plunging
wildly through stacks of scenery.
Lullu Hurst, the alleged magnetic
girl, was at the bottom of the storm.
A score of solemn-looking men sat
in a minstrel-like circle around the
stage waiting for the phenomonen.
The young girl is a fair type of the
middle class young lady of the far
South, above the medium height,
magnificently formed, apparently
without an ouncc of superfluous
flesh aboutli lier. She would be taken
for an athlete but for the soft peachy
complexion. Her hands are rather
large and the wrist and forearm are
beautifully rounded and thoroughly
developed. A close fitting black
silk dress made the girlish face look
older than the 16 years she pleads
guilty to, but the fluffy bangs that
strayed down over the fair forehead
served as an off set to the too mature
dress. Her manners are as simple
as those of any farmer's daughter,
and the high-keyed voice has the,
plaintive cadence peculiar to countr
villages. Throughout the experi
ments she laughed in a good-natured
way, as though the entire affair was
a huge joke. The phenomenon's
manager announced that the force
exerted by the girl was inexplicable
and then, called for'an nmbrella. The
owner of the umbrella raised it and
stood under'it with the young lady.
Both had hold of the handle. Then
the borrowed umbrella yanked itself
down ward,bit the owner under, the
ear?, pounded him about the head,
and finally, as lie struggled to hold
it steady, .pushed him over a dozen
grave looking editors and landed
here in an ash heap,, just off the
stage. To the lookers on it seemed
as though the "phenomenon" was
pushing the man around by force
of muscular strength. Several mus
cular men tried to holdjt billiard
cue, but the athlete maiden was too
much for thein. A two hundred
pound scientist sat down upon a
chair. Miss Hurst placed the palms
of her hands against its sides and
lifted him clean off the floor. As
the chair began to raise the observer
could not fail to note how the fine
muscles in the forearm grew rigid
and stood out in little cords. Half
a dozen men tried in vain to press
to the ground a chair which she

When a young girl finds a four

strange that some families don't

Chicago boasts of a lady, now
ninety-four years old, who used to
sit on George Washington's lap. It
is comforting to know that even if
George couldn't tell a lie he used to
have some fun with the girls.
"Don't give ine any of your lip!"
said an ugly country school teacher
to a pert young miss who had
"sassed" him. "Oh, you needn't
wory," she retorted. "I wouldn't

your face were gold dollars."

"Do you use capital or little let

itals in llhode Island. "Oh, ah—
ahem—yes, so there are—but we

It was Shakspeare who remarked:
"Better three hours too soon than
one minute too late." Shakspeare
never waited three hours in a rural
railway station on a cold night,
where a dozen men and boys were
smoking vile pipes and spiting to
bacco juice against a red-hot stove,
or he would have said "Better never
than three hours too soon."
Pipps, who had been lunching
with a friend upon frog's logs:
'.'Everything you see is of some use

Friend, who is disreputations: "I
don't agree with you. Of what use
is the mosquito -to us?" Fipps:
"All! my dear fellow, you take a
wrong view of things. Just think
how useful we are to the mosquito."
Under the Iowa liquor law which
after July 4th forbids-the railroads
from transporting liquor through
the state, a project is on foot to re
ceive the "critter" by means of the
old-time wagon system in vogue be
fore the days of railroad transporta
tion. Where there is a will there is
a way, when a, man wants his bit

half closed the door.
An exchange says a superstitious
subscriber who found a spider in a
copy of his paper, writes to know if
we consider it a bad omen. Noth
ing of the kind. The spider was
merely looking over the columns of
the paper to see what merchant did
not advertise, so that he could spin
his web across the store door and be
free from disturbance.
"Then you do love me, Elijah?"
"Love you, Elizabeth Ann? Why I

that test of your lofe. Get your
