DAMAGING EVIDENCE.
UNRELIABILITY OF CIRCUMSTANTIAL
TESTIMONY AT TIMES.
▲ Stan Is Hanged Who Could Have Sent
His Hired Man to the Gallows Had He
Suspected the Latter Knew His Secret.
He Had the Confldonce of Many Friends.
A party of men who had been discussing
the abolition of the death penalty, and one
of tbe number had just told of an execu
tion by hanging of which he had been a
witness, when John T. McDonough re
marked:
"I have seen just one hanging in my life,
and I issued the warrant for the arrest of
the man I saw hanged. It was rather a re
markable case, and it taught me always to
look upon purely circumstantial evidence
as not very good."
"How is that? Let us hear the case,"
said one of the party.
"Well, it waa like this. It was in 1872; I
waa quite young then, and had just been
elected police justice in Dunkirk. One
morning a German whom. I knew came to
me, bringing with him a Polander, and
said:
" 'This man tells a very strange story;
either he is crazy or else a murder has been
committed in Jamestown.'
"Naturally I was interested al once, and
questioned the German. The Pole could
not speak English, but he spoke a dialect
of German, and had made his story intelli
gible to the German. The Pole's story, as
interpreted to me, was about like this:
"He had been working for a man named
Marlow, a well kuown brewer iv James
town, who stood well in the community.
Some days previous an acquaintance ot his
named Bach man had been stopping with
him at Marlow's house. Marlow and Bach
man had gone about town together consid
erably and had become quite well acquaint
ed, apparently, in so short a time. One
evening Marlow asked tho Pole if Bach
man had any money about him. The Pole
replied that he thought he had. He
thought Marlow's question a queer one at
the time, but soon forget about it until
subsequent events recalled it to his mind.
SUSPICIOUS ACTIONS.
"The next day the Pole was working
about Marlow's place as usual when Mar
low and Bachman came up from the vil
lage together. Bachman carried a parcel.
When they reached the house they went
into the cellar together, and remained
there a long time. Then the Pole heard
what sounded to him like a shot. Soon
afterward Marlow came out of the cellar
alone. About that time someone drove up
with a wagon to get a barrel of beer. In
stead of sending the Pole into the cellar
for it, as he usually did, Marlow went him
self to fetch it. When he reappeared with
it the Pole noticed a spot of blood upon it
and another on Marlow's clothing. Then
he began to think that something awful
had been done. After the customer had
driven away with his heer Marlow ordered
the Pole to hitch up a teum and drive to
the woods after a load of wood. This order
added to the Pole's suspicions, for there
was no particular need of going for wood
at that time. However, he went.
"When he returned, one of the first
things he noticed was that there had been
a fire in the furnace under the brewing
kettle. The embers were still smolder
ing. There was another strange circum
stance. No brewing had been done. There
was a quantity of water in the kettle which
had become heated, but that was all. The
Pole, who, though he could not speak in
English, could think and reason quite flu
ently in Polish, began to put together all
that he had heard and seen that seemed to
him unaccountable or strange, at least, and
drew from ft n conclusion that was as yet
vague, but suggested something horrible.
THE HIRED MAN TELLS.
"The next morning the Pole asked Mar
low to allow him to take a day off. He
said it was a holiday among his people and
he wanted to visit some of his acquaint
ances. Marlow gave his consent, and the
Pole started off. Instead of visiting his
friends he took the first train for Dunkirk
and sought for some one to tell his story to.
For a long time he was unsuccessful, as no
one could understand him. Finally he
found the German, who brought him to
me.
"Well, you may believe that the story
impressed me. It was told in a straight
forward manner, and there was nothing
about the man to indicate mental derange
ment. Still I hesitated to issue a warrant,
for Marlow, as I said, was a citizen of good
standing, and it seemed impossible that he
could have committed such a crime. I
went to an old judge, to whom I frequent
ly applied for advice, aud laid the matter
before him. He listened with great inter
est. 'Issue the warrant,'he said. I took
the necessary affidavits, filled out the war
rant and gave it to an officer, with instruc
tions to go to Jamestown with it. When
we reached the depot where the train was
ready and about to start we learned that
Marlow's brother-in-law, who lived in Dun
kirk, was already aboard. Evidently he
had got wind of what was going on, and
was going to warn Marlow. We had him
taken S'om the train and detained while
the officer went on. To make sure, we tel
egraphed to the Jamestown authorities to
arrest Marlow for murder. In a short time
we received an answer in the form of a
question. 'Do you mean Marlow, the
brewer?' said the dispatch. 'Yes, Marlow,
the brewer,' we replied.
PERFECT FAITH IN TnE MURDERER.
"When our officer reached Jamestown
Marlow was under arrest nominally. The
whole affair was regarded as a joke, how
ever. Marlow's friends chaffed him and
be laughed loudest at their raillery. Our
officer presented his papers. The deputy
who had arrested Marlow looked them
over. 'Your papers are all right, but you're
all wrong; Marlow wouldn't hurt a fly,' he
said. Then our officer told his story. A
party started to examine the ashes in Mar
low's furnace. In a few moments some
one had found a kneecap. Bones of fingers
and other portions of a human skeleton
were discovered. Then there was no move
'chaffing, and Marlow was under arrest in
tearnest.
"On the trial the defence admitted the
killing, but said that it was dove by Mar
low's wife, who struck Bachman on tlie
head with a hammer because he insulted
her mother while Marlow was away from
home. But after the killing had once been
admitted the jury took no stock in that
story, especially in view of the testimony
given by the Pole. Marlow was convicted
and hanged.
"I thought then, and I still think, that if
Marlow had had any suspicion that the
Pole suspected him and intended to inform
the autliorities he could have turned the
charge against the Pole without any diffi
culty. If a man of Marlow's standing had
accused the Pole of murdering Bachman —
he would have had his wife corroborate
whatever story he might have prepared—
nothing in the world could have saved the
Pole from the gallows. Since then I
have thought little of circumstantial evi
dence." —Albany Express
JLost uy (tie Jump.
When a Chicago and Eastern Illinois
suburban train was driving along through
Eggleston, a suburb eight miles from the
court house, at a rate of nearly a mile a
minute, a man was seen to spring from the
rear platform. The engineer of a passing
train saw the act and signaled a stop. Out
piled the conductor, brakemen, engineer,
fireman and a hundred or two passengeis,

tared for yarns around witE bones and
mangled human flesh. Instead they saw
a tail German, who stood ruefully rubbing
the back of his head with his left band,
while in the other hand he held a new hat
which he was brushing against his trous
ers to rid it of dust.
"Why did you jump off?" indignantly
ashed the conductor.
"Ter hat, mine now hat, him blow off
unt I yootup after him."
"You flabbergasted idiot, don't you know
that it might have killed you?" the con
ductor said as he pushed the German for
ward toward the train.
"Mine hat, him cost em tollar; him blow
off unt I yoomp. Him vas a new hat."
This last sentence was said for the en
lightenment of the indignant passengers,
who were applying anything but compli
mentary remarks to the man with the
Broken head. The following morning the
fellow was again a passenger on the same
train, and when he saw the conductor he
at once apologized for having jumped from
a "cannon ball*' train.
"Glad to know you've learned some
sense; you'll not try that game any more,"
said the conductor.
"Yaw, I vas so sorry. Him knocks a
holes in mine het, unt der doctor sharges

new hat him cost but em tollar, unt der

And the German shook his head lugu
briously.—Chicago Herald.
Senator Painter's Contribution.
There is a good story told about Senator
Palmer when he was living in Washington.
It was his custom to go to church every
Sunday morning, and also his custom to
put a single dollar on the plate. As he
passed into church one Sunday morning,
accompanied by his private secretary, ho
began to search through his pockets with a
dismayed look on his face. Turning to his
companion he asked for tho loan of a dollar,
explaining that he had nothing but a $2
bill. The secretary could not accommodate
the senator, but a bright thought suddenly
seemed to strike the latter, and he ex
claimed:
"Oh, well, I can fix it."
" You wouldn't make change off the plate,
would you?" asked the secretary, horrified
at the thought.
"Never mind how I will do it," replied
the senator; "you will see it done."
When the plate came around the senator
gravely took out his $2 bill, tore it in two
pieces in the middle, and laid one piece on
the plate. After the services were over he
walked forward to where the stewards
were counting the collection money, and
asked the one who had come down his
nisle if a mutilated $2 bill had been found
on the plate.
"Yes, and we don't know what to do
with it," whs the man's reply.
"Well," said the senator, "here's tho
other half, and you can have it for $1.
Th.it will make your half worth |1 to you,
and SI is all I ever give."
He got the dollar.—New York Press.
Patent for Seven League Boots.
Who ever heard of a man lifting himself
by his boot straps? Only small children
believe in the performance of "The Seven
League Boots." Well, the patent office
has granted papers to a Russian upon a de
vice which is a combination of the hitherto
deemed impossible boot strap act, with a
little of the seven league business added.
The Russian lives in St. Petersburg, ne
calls his invention au "apparatus for walk
ing, running and jumping." The appara
tus consists of bows and springs fastened
to the feet, the legs, the waist and shoul
ders. As the knees are bent either to walk
or run or jump the tension of the bows
and springs is increased, and the man
shoot 3 upward and forward. At least that
Is what the drawings and specifications of
the invention say will happen. The Rus
sian did not send over any actual samples
of his contrivance, and the patent oflice
people have to act upon the theory only.—
Cor. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Poets Are Not Like Birds.
The late George H. Boker wrote to his
friend, R. H. Stoddard: "Read used to tell
a story of some Yankee poet who resolve i
to wait for an impulse from tho Muse. He
waited thirty years, and at the end of that
time concluded himself no poet, although
his youthful poems gave promise of great
things. That man perhaps wanted but in
dustry to make him immortal. I hold that
there is a labor connected with all great
literary achievements sufficient to drive
any but a man of genius stark mad. This
the world will never believe. It has an
idea that poets write as birds sing, and it
is this very false idea which robs us of half
our honors. Were poetry forged upon the
anvil, cut out with the ax or spun in the
mill, my heaven! how men would wonder
at the process! What power, what.toil,
what ingenuity 1"
The Value of Experience.
A good story is told of a candidate for
the assembly nomination in this county.
He is also an oil producer. About a year
ago a man applied to him for a contract to
ilrill a well. "Have you ever drilled any
wells?" asked the oil man. "No," said the
applicant. "Well," said the oil man, "I
must have a man of experience."
These two again met, aud our oil pro
ducer, who had never held an office, asked
the driller to vote for him. "Have you
ever had a seat in the legislature?" was the
driller's query. "No," said the candidate.
"Well," said the driller, "I'm going to
vote for some man who has had experi
ence." —Venango Spectator. -
Canary Rearing Industry.
Germany carries ou a large trade in the
export of canaries. Every year she sends
no fewer than 130,000 of these birds to
America, 3,000 to England and about 2,000
to Russia. The great nursery for tho
breeding of canaries is the Hartz moun
tains. Many of the peasants are engaged
in the work of rearing the birds, and re
ceive wages of from £10 to £25 a yoar for
their trouble, an important addition to
their earnings. Many canaries come also
from the Black Forest, but they do not
fetch such high prices as the Hartz birds,
not being considered such good songsters.

Flowers and Perfume.
Flowers and the perfumes distilled from
them have a salutary influence on the con
stitution, and constitute a therapeutlo
agency of high value. Residence in per
fumed atmosphere forms a protection from
pulmonary affections and arrests the de
velopment of phthisis. In the town of La
Grasse, France, where the making of per
fumes is largely carried on, phthisis is al
most unknown owing to the odorous va
pors inhaled from the numerous distilleries.

Olive Thorne Miller's Pet Monkey.
Unlike the common marmoset, which
I destroys everything it touches, he is natu
rally gentle. A white moth which was
once given him to cat he took in his dainty
fingers, examined it closely on all sides
and then let it go without hurting it in the
j least.
Sleepy time comes ns early as 5 o'clock,
I and ho requires no coaxing to go to bed.
| Off he starts on a gallop, but on reaching
1 his box he pauses, stands upright, raises
! tho blanket cover with one little hand,
: leans over and peers in, with a comical air
jof looking under tho bed for a burglar,
i Finding things all right he glances around
| the room to see that all is safe there, then
dives under the blanket, resting his feet
j (or hinder hands) on the edge of the box a
j moment, while his long tail curls itself up
; from the tip like a watch spring and
| passes in under the body, when he instant
!ly drops under the cover. Often as we have
■ seen this performance it never ceases to bo
'■ extremely funny.
' Once inside his bed with his cherished
tail he sits down with this member staud
j ing up before him on edge, like a wheel,
thrusts his head down between his knees
beside it, and thus arranged in a compact
bundle, almost as round as a ball, ho
, sleeps, the top of his head on the floor and
his nose buried in his fur. How he can
breathe is a problem. Soon after he is in
bed we hear the most tender, sweet and
birdlike calls and cries, which arc.really
touching, for they seem like lanienrations

Some Odd Books.
At Warsenstein, in Germany, there is
perhaps one of the most curiously original
collections of books in the world. It is
really a botanical collection. Outwardly
each volume presents tbp nnnearance of a
block of wood, and that is what it actually
is; but a minute examination reveals the
fact that it is also a complete history of
the particular tree which it represents.
At the back of the book the bark has
been removed from a space which allows
the scientific and the common name of the
tree to be placed as a title for the book.
One side is formed from the split wood of
the tree, showing its grain and natural
fracture; the other side shows the wood
when worked smooth and varnished. One
end shows the grain ns left by the saw and
the other the finely polished wood.
On opening the book it is found to con
tain the fruit, seeds, leaves aud other prod
ucts of the tree, the moss which usually
grows upon its trunk and the insects which
feed upon the different parts of the tree.
These are supplemented by a well printed
description of the habits, usual location
and manner of growth of the tree. In fact,
everything which has a bearing upon that
particular tree secures a place in this won
derful, useful aud valuable collection.—
Youth's Companion.
A Voracious Pike.
A female pike weighing twenty-nine
pounds has been found in the lake at
Ewhurst park, Basingstoke, the seat of
Lord Alexander Russell. It had appar
ently met its death in the vain attempt to
swallow one of its own species weighing
nine pounds. The two fish, in the position
in which they were found, are being stuffed
at Winchester. Pike have died in this
manner before, and it is doubtful whether
or not these should be regarded as in
stances of voracity or pure accidents. Pike,
like many other fish, frequently do battle,
and it has been suggested that when two
savage fish rush headlong at one another
the smaller one might easily enter tho jaws
of the larger. Once in there would be no
getting out again, for the pike's mouth is
lined with hundreds of sharp teeth, which,
like those of the shark, point throatward.
As an undoubted instance of pikish voraci
ty there is an unusually well authenticated
record of a piSe of two pounds first swal
lowing a trout of one pound, and shortly
afterward, while the tail of the trout was
still in its throat, seizing au artificial bait
three and a half inches in length.—Pall
Mall Gazette.
A Big Phantom Ship.
The largest phantom of the deep ever
heard of was that of the old Frisians. This
was the Mannigfual, which was so large
that the captain had to gallop about on
horseback to give his orders, and whose
masts were so high that boys going aloft
to attend to the sails came down gray
headed men. It was in trying to pass the
Strait of Dover that this huge vessel
scraped the rocks, and so made the white
cliffs of Albion. And yet, perhaps, she
was not so largo after all as the French
phantom Chasse-Foudre. This vessel was
so long that she took seven years to tack
and her cables were the circumference of
St. Peter's dome. Twenty thousand men
could maneuver on her maintop, and in
order to provision the crew when sent aloft
each block was fitted up as a tavern. But
this phantom ship was manned by good
and deserving mariners, who found little
to do and plenty of meat and drink on
beard of her.—Chambers' JoukbsL
Photographing a Bullet.
Nothing is too difficult for the experi
menter to attempt—witness the photo
graphs of rifle bullets in motion, obtained
recently by two Austrian officers. Scien
tific journals of high standing considered
this feat so difficult that at least one of
i them (La Nature, of Paris) refused to be
; lieve that it had been done, even after the
publication of the pictures, and discredited
the conclusions drawn from them by the
' officers. Yet on examining the original
photographs (which were not as large as
; one's little finger naiL and so had to be pho
j tographed on a larger scale when pub-
I lished) the editors had to confess\hat they
were not only genuine, but the results of
wonderful knowledge of photography and
skill in manipulation. The condensed
wave of air in front of the bullet could
plainly be seen, and from its shape inter
esting deductions can be made as to the
proper shape of. rifle bullets.—New York
