A BRACE OF SHARP OPERATORS.
Frank Hayes and Gurdine Hor ton Keep a Feed Corral. The Way the Two Were Brought to Book Yesterday. They Bob a Poor Men of HU Hay, Try to Get Him Awested ou a Trumped- TJp Charge, but Are Locked Up Themselves. Frank Hayes, was arrested yesterday afternoon in the office of the chief of police on a charge of larceny, while he was laying tho ropes to get his victim, Francois Gevaudan, deprived of his lib erty on a trumped up complaint. Gur dine Horton, of unsavory reputation, was arrested a little later, as a partner to the swindle by which Gevaudan lost a load of hay valued at $25 30. Both crooks are now behind the bars and will be arraigned before Justice Owens this afternoon. Gevandan, a hard-working farmer of Oerritoe, came to town on Saturday morning with 5500 pounds of hay, in tending to sell it at one of the livery stables. While on Second street, near the New Orleans house, ho met Hayes and Horton, who alleged that they had a feed and wood corral on the corner of Olive and Seventh streets. They of fered to buy his hay, and he lot them have it at $8.75 a ton, to be unloaded at their corral. A few drinks to which they invited their victim, sealed the bargain, and then the procession moved on along Main street, until the Panorama Btables were reached. Here the brace of Bwindlerß entered and bol<\ the hay to Mr. Buddinger for $8 per ton, 75 cents less than what they had bought it for. This Gevaudan did not know, as they advised bim that the hay had by tbem been sold at an advance. He was told to go with Horton to the Seventh street corral and await Hayes' coming with the money, but neither ever came, and after a lot of excuse Gevaudan was put off until Monday for his money. While out hunting for his sharp cus tomers yesterday, the Cerritos farmer, who is a Dauphine Frenchman but little acquainted with the English language, ■aw Hayes and Hamp Horton, the brother of Gurdine, traveling on Main street in a one-horse buggy. He hailed tbem and demanded his money. More excuses, but no money, followed his re quest, and seeing a lady acquaintance, Mrs. Gauthier of Jefferson street, pass ing, he requested her to call a police man. At the word police the two fel lows jumped out of the buggy and ran away. Gevaudan then got into the buggy and drove to tbe police station, where he delivered the team to the chief, and told him his tale of woe. Pretty soon Hamp Horton and Frank Hayes came along with long faces, and a story as to how they had been driven from their buggy by a Frenchman, who had gone off with it. Hayes, when taxed with the swindle, became very cheeky. He could pay the man if he wanted to, but he wouldn't, and that was all there was to it. They couldn't seize the corral, nor the hoise and buggy, because he and Gur dine had that day sold the entire outfit to Hamp. But Mr. Hamp Horton, who from a laboring man, bad suddenly be come a feed stable owner, had no bills of sale. It turned out that the horse and buggy were the property of V. V. Cochran,who expected fourteen loads of hay in pay ment, but had so far never received a wisp of straw. When Mr. Cochran came 'to the police office, and beard all the particulars of Horton & Hayes' pecu liar methods of doing business, he lost no time in taking back to his own stable the horse and buggy that he came bo near losing, and the ex-partners were dumped into the cooler. The police claim that the entire outfit lives by expedients, and that many com plaints have been received against these men. Gurdine Horton is the man who some months ago ran away with a young girl. He was caught at San Fernaudo by a deputy sheriff, and placed in the county jail, but escaped prosecution by marrying the young woman. After Gurdine Horton's arrest A. W. Andrews, of Redlands, called at the police station, and asked to see him. When Horton was brought in, he at once identified bim as the man who, about four months ago, got away with two horses belonging to him, and a wagon. Horton at first denied it, but finally admitted the crime. He called at Andrews' livery stable, in Redlands, and engaged in a talk about horses, representing that he want ed to buy a team. Andrews showed him two horses which be wanted to sell, and, after some talk, Horton borrowed them for a day or two to test them, on the understanding that if tbey proved satis factory, he would give the price asked for them. Mr. Andrews went out and borrowed a light wagon for Horton to drive tbem to, and he drove off. That was the last Mr. Andrews ever saw of horsoß or wagon. Horton, when pinned down, admitted that he sold one of the horses; claimed that the other died in Los Angeles, and said he also sold the wagon.

How n Paying; Business Grew Up Around Three Young und Pretty Girls. About ten years ago three girls in the Interior of this state, brought up in af fluence, were suddenly deprived of their money. It became necessary for them to earn money, and it suited neither their taste 3 nor inclinations to go out of their homes, nor had they been educated in any special direction. They had skillful hands, however, and with these they got up paper dolls and put them in Buffalo shop 3 for sale. These inciden tally came to the notice of a stationer here, who surprised them with an emis sary and a proposition to make these dolls and givo him the exclusive control of their sale. Imagine the astonishment and bewil derment of these three housekeeping girls. They were, however, persuaded into tho enterprise, and got together thirty housekeeping girls like them selves, who came to their house and helped them. Thi3 year they made and disposed of 8,000 paper dolls. The or ders for tho next year were larger than ever and had outgrown their home. They now engaged offices; the financial arrangement their mother took charge of, and the packing and shipping fell to tho father. In the midst of all this prep aration tho firm' failed, and they were left to struggle with discouragements and vicissitudes, as if they were in the great world indeed. Then came a proposition more aston ishing than the last, which was to equip a novelty for an American bazaar in tho Oyelorama of Niagara, London, and to three girls who believed them selves unknown outside of their homes. Then came letters and propositions from here and there, and their wonder grew. But their fingers kept pace, and they found themselves obliged to keep larger offices, to give themselves a firm name, and until scarcely realized by them selves they found themselves swimming along gayly in tho great current of trade. Now they added thirty rnoro girls to their original thirty and to their paper dolls all sorts of pretty and dainty ar ticle's in paper. Then they bethought them of giving a reception and showing what women's fingers could do in paper. The youngest of tho trio had a pretty taste in decoration, aud their Easter fete, for such it proved to be, gained such renown that Cloveland begged for an exhibition of the same sort, after the manner of these two cities, who always covet ono another's performances, and thither the sisters went, taking their pretty things. By and by tho paper house from which they bought their paper wondered who this, their best customer, was and what he did with such quantities of colored papers. This curiosity was carried to tho point of finding out. Imagine the firm's surprise. Three young and pretty girls, installed in one of the handsomest office buildings in the town, and sur rounded by sixty more girls like unto themselves, were transforming their pa per into banks of carnations, trailing vines of purple clematis, masses of peo nies, jonquils aud tulips, violets and sweet peas,' butterflies with gilded wings, bonbon and powder puff bags, dressing table even dressed in paper, and glove case, sachet powder box, all of paper. Here was an idea, and this firm, whoso commercial instinct was alert, immedi ately invited these young women to give displays of their work at their branch houses in different cities, and thus they made visits of triumph to Boston, Phil adelphia, Chicago, Milwaukee. Tho workrooms havo grown again and they now employ from 80 to 100 assistants. "Mamma is still coir business manager," writes one of these in a friendly letter, "and we are happy also in having been of service to so many of our friends, obliged to earn money as wo were, bnt with no previous preparation."—New York Sun. The Daisy. Tho daisy is everywhere. I have trav eled somewhat extensively in the Old World, but have not been lucky enough to see it anywhere as prolific-ally happy as it is with us. It is not tho daisy of the poets—the daisy of Burns, which is not taking to wildhood in our eastern states, though finding itself at homo in British Columbia, but a species of chry santhemum and is distinctively known in the Old World as the oxeye daisy. Like the buttercup, it is offensive to cattle, and indeed to almost all things. In a dry and pulverized condition it is fly powder, so destructive to all insects. " In those portions of our country where Indian corn is a staple crop, neither the buttercup nor the oxeye daisy are dreaded by tho farmer. The hoe har rowing destroys it utterly, but in the New England states, where pasture is of more consequence than grain, they rob tho farmer of half his profits while giving pleasure to the eye of .the trav eler.—Thomas Meehau in Philadelphia Ledger. Taking it Coolly. The ship of an admiral, who was the Duke of Wellington's near connection, was wrecked. He was placed in com mand of a second ship, which was also lost and he himself was drowned.

The wife of a popular preacher says that a fine looking young farmer, rough ly dressed, with an ox whip in his hand, knocked at the door and was shown into tho parlor. There he laid his whip upon the mantelpieeo and proceeded to make known his errand. "I say parson," ho began, with some embarrassment, "if I was tofigger roun today till I got things fixed to my no tion, could I come up here 'long with a girl an git married?" "Certainly," said tho minister, "cer tainly. What seems to be tho trouble?' "Wal," answered the farmer, "I've got my license—that's all ready; I got it inore'n a week ago. An now I've got a place to git married at. That's two things. But I ain't said nothing to tbe girl yet. She's in town today, though, an I seen her in a store buyin somo things, an I'm a-goin right down an ask her." He took down hia whip, flung it over his shoulderand went out of the door and down the street. Tho minister and his wife laughed, but the wife went often to tho window and peeped out to see whether the expectant couple were in sight. More than an hour passed; she had nearly given them up; but at last they appeared—the girl, as the parson's wife expressed it, "a perfect little beauty and as neat as a pin." "I had lots o' trouble a-findin her," said the farmer by way of explanation, aud then they stood up and were mar ried, while the bride seemed hardly to know whether to smile or to weep. But when the ceremony was over and the minister's wife said something to her about it's being so sudden she answered, while tears brimmed her eyes, "But you see, ma'am, I've loved Jim ever since I can remember, and he was just too stupid to find it out."—St. Louis Re public. The Antiquity of tho Umbrella.. The antiquity of the umbrella is undis puted. The Chinese, who in their lavish notions of antiquity credit their institu tions with centuries galore, flunk noth ing of dating tho first umbrella back to 4,000 or 5,000 years anterior to the Mo saic date of creation. Many distin guished scholars have claimed to dis cover in the Bible reference to the exist ence of a shield against sun and rain, while" the Sanscrit poets, writing when Latin was young, are full of allusions to it. Various have been the speculations as to the origin of tho umbrella. Some say that tho introducing of leafy branches into a sort of a bower first suggested it, as the fig leaf of Father Adam gave tho first mighty impulse to the clothing trade. Others that the no madic tent was the only natural proto type of what so strongly resembles it in miniature. In the Chaldaic sculptures of Nineveh the umbrella is of frequent occurrence, as shown by the excellent reproductions of Layard, who wrote concerning it: "The umbrella or parasol, that emblem of royalty so universally adopted by eastern nations, was generally carried over the king in time of peace and some times even in war. In shape it resem bled very closely those in common use, but it is always open in the sculptures. It was edged with tassels, and was usu ally ornamented at the top with a flower or some other ornament."—Clothier and Furnisher. Why the Soldier Run. •'When Sherman was marching through Georgia, myself and a com panion went on a little foraging expedi tion," said O. F. Rudiker. "We had a long weary tramp without finding any thing to replenish the larder, for the country had been scoured by foraging parties several times before. We finally sighted a cabin inhabited by an Irish woman. In a high board inclosure wero a dozen fat geese. We arranged it that I should engago the woman in conversa tion while my companion appropriated a goose. He fastened a long linen thread to his bayonet, attached a well baited fish hook and began angling in the goose pen. Suddenly there was a loud squawking, and we saw a big fat gander flutter to the top of the pen and make toward the soldier, who was beating a retreat. Tho woman was greatly amused, and called out, 'Och, me darlint, don't run; shure the gawnder's only playin wid yez.' 'Playin nothin!' called back the fleeing soldier, 'tho blamed thing means busi ness,' and the bluecoat disappeared with the squawking gauder in hot pursuit." —St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Why will a woman who is a good judge of a picture hang on her person a naturalistic bug or flower made out of gold and diamonds? Tho Prince of Wales buys much jewelry; it is his favorite gift on wedding occa sions, and ho misses taste just as often as anybody else. In fact he must bear some of the blame of keeping bad de signs in vogue. According to reports, he presented not long ago to a profes sionally musical bride a brooch which was an imitation of a violin, and his gift to his niece who was lately married was a diamond set flower. The prince can make such designs fashionable, but he can never make them in taste. What is the matter with them? Sev eral things. In tho first place, jewels shouldn't imitate natural objects. It's a long story why, but I will try to abridge. Art that imitates is never good art. Imitations ask admiration merely for the skill with which one thing has been made to look like an other. This is an idea that has nothing to do with beauty or with ornament, and it is artisan's and not artist's work. Besides, to use an object, as a violin, for another purpose than tho ono for which it was designed is absurd and stupid. This sort of thing is a low kind of humor, on a par with puns. True art is creative. It aims at pro ducing forms of pure beauty. Such a form asks admiration for itself, for its form or color, without conjuring up for eign ideas. Art may make use of nat ural forms, but only to combine their beauties into a new form, never imita tively.—Harper's Bazar. Mr. Gladstone's Eyes. Fifty-four years ago Mr. Gladstone conceived the idea that it would be bet ter for his eyesight wero he to substitute candles for tho somewhat primitive lamp by which he had been in the habit of studying by night. Tho light shed by two candles was not sufficient for his purpose, but with the inflexibility and perseverance which are his most marked characteristics ho continued to perform his nightly task, with the result that his right eye became so much weakened that his medical adviser enjoined upon him the necessity of abstaining totally from work, and living as far as possible in a dark room for six months. Long before that period had expired Mr. Gladstone made a trip to southern Eu ropo in company with his old college friend, Sir Stephen Glynne. Ouce again a grave accident to Mr. Gladstone's eye threatened for a few days to produce tho most serious conse quences. It is well known that he did not begin to wield the ax as an amateur feller of trees until he was forty years old, and not long afterward a chip flew upward as he was cutting down a big oak and struck him in the right eye, which is the more sensitive of the two. A few days of rest and of abstention from work sufficed to restore him en- ! tirely, but it is a remarkable fact that the "arcus senilis," or circular ring out side the pupil, was developed in Mr. Gladstone's eyes at a much earlier period than is common with human beings whose life is destined to be more than usually prolonged.—London Telegraph.
