Ho was walk ing uliing Clark street this ufternoon when a man ran out of tho clothing store nnd darted down the street as fast as he could go. Two seconds later the proprietor of the store ran out bare headed nnd followed him, yelling at the top of his voice: 'Stop thief!' 'Stop thief!' A policeman caught sight of the fugitive und drew his revolver to shoot him, when the bareheaded man bawled out: 'Shoot him in te legs! Te coat and vest lsh mine!'

Told, by Campaign Orators. , DEFEW AXD HIS READY WIT Congressman Cummings Keluted a (iood One on the Kepculof the Sherman I. aw. Good Jokes on Tumratmy-Other Apt Witticisms. Xew York, Nov. 10. While the political light just closed In New York was the must eurnest ever fought, there were side lights of humor thrown upon it that livened up the sit uation and mude it more beurable to leaders and people. The humors of the campaign were many and varied, and the stories told by the orators were from stale to side-splitting, but were usually well adapted to the crowds to whom they were told. Will Oulklns, In the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette tells some of thetn. He Bays that Chauncey 11. Depew was, of course, the prime story-teller of the campaign, though not a few others tried themselves at funny business. At one stution atw'hich l)ipew's special train stopped, he dis played his ready repartee, when some one in the crowd Interrupted hint by shouting, "What about the New York Central railroad?" "I'm president of It." responded lK-pew, "but 1 can't help that. When 1 came here 1 didn't have a penny, and if 1 hud spent my time loafing around, interrupting speakers and voting the Democratic ticket I Btlp pose I wouldn't be any better off today than you are." "Speuklng of railroads," said Mr. De pew, "they are not making as much money this year ns they did during the World's Fair, and thut reminds me that I was in Chicago last year and met Christopher Columbus. 'You ilnd things pretty much changed in the last four hundred years, Jlr. Columbus,' I re marked. 'Yes, was the sorrowful an swer. 'The only thing thut Is familiar to me is tho Democratic party.' " Dr. Dcpew ulso gave vent to the fol lowing jokelet: ".Some of my Democratic friends say ,1 am not going so swiftly on lny special as Hill and Flower ure on theirs that their trains run eighty miles un hour to keep appointments. Well, the hound, you kimw, was told that he didn't equal the hare In speed. 'Of course not,' sui(t the hound; 'I'm only, running for my dinner und the linre Is running for his life' That's the difference between Hill and me." C. C. Shayno was another of the cam paign story-tellers, nnd gave vent to the following as Illustrative of the fac tiuniil light in the state and county Democracy: "The Democratic, party of today," he says, "reminds me of the widow and widower who got married. Each had two children, and, in the course of th'elr married life, two more children came to bless them. One morning a terrible racket emanated from the kitchen. The old man went below, and presently he was heard calling to his wife: "Sarah! Sarah!' said he, 'come down quick: my children and your children are lighting with our children.' " Senator Hill found but little In his campaign to Inspire mirth, and he told but. one sbu-y during the entire strug gle, and even that wus not new. It was something like this: Urldget (loudly, to Pat. In the yard) Put, Pat, come to dinner! Come In and get your ham und eggs. Pat (softy) Have ye rallly ham n'uigs, Bridget? Urldget (whisperlng)-Whlst, Pat, I was yellln' fur the benefit of the neigh bors, sure, Av course, we've only soup mute nnd bread. Congressman Cuniinlngs told a story relutlve to the repeal of tho Sherman bill by a Republican congress: "John Allen was a country lawyer and wus engaged to defend u' man charged with mayhem with having bitten off another man's ear In a rough-and- tum ble light. The father of the defendant, afraid that a common country practi tioner might not be able to put on the necessary flourishes to impress the Jury, nssoclated with Allen a young lawyer fresh from the Ilavard Law school. "John conducted the cross-examination of u negrj witness, whom he got to admit that tho place where the fight occurred was a 'new ground,' full of short stumps about six inches high, which were very sharp at top as sharp as a knife. In fact, some of them were and that in rolling about on the ground the plaintiff's head might have fallen against the sharp point of a stump and his eur have been cut off. " 'Yasser,' the witness said, 'hit nioughtter been dnt way.' '"That will do,' said Allen. 'Hold on,' Interrupted the young lawyer from Hurvnrd, who thought thut Allen hadn't gone far enough. 'You say that this man's ear might have been cut off in that way. Are you sat isfied, sir, beyond a doubt that this is Jhe way In which this gentleman had the misfortune of losing his ear?' " 'Well, boss,' suld the darkey, 'I moughter been shure ef It ef I hadn'er seen de yuther man spit de year outer his mouth!' " A TROLLEY CHAIR. Chicago Man rind a New Applicutlou for , .

Gross Ignorance Exposed. Its Value and - Healthfulness Established, fully The results obtained by certain pro fessed chemists In an attempt to ana lyze Poskola are so fur from the truth that we have every reason to believe the perpetrators to be In the em ploy of rival man ufacturers, (possi bly people inter ested in prepara tions of cod liver oil), whose busi ness has been In jured by the mer ited popularity of Paskola. This s u s p 1 cl o n is strengthened by the fact that the untruthful reports as to the compo sition of Paskola have been widely circulated through the malls and otherwise. Among the things, the so called "chemists" have stated, Is that Puskola was nothing but glu cose and hydro chloric, add, the ridiculousness of which assertion will be inada clear by the following i-yperlmc.it : . Take two pint lottles and in one place a tablenpoonful of glucose and In the other a like quantity of Paskola; fill them with water, shake thoroughly and add to each forty drops of muriatic or hydrochloric acid, in order to imitate the acidity of the natural gastric Juice. Having previously finely minced a quan tity of rare or raw lean beef, chicken, the white of hard boiled eggs or similar foods; put into each bottle one onuce. Immerse the bottles In warm water nnd carefully maintain the contents at a temperature of 100 to 150 degrees Fahr enheit, frequently shaking In order to thoroughly expose the food to the action of the solution. In the course of a very short time, the contents of the bottle containing Pas kola will be seen to undergo a change, and In two or three hours the food will will have become entirely dissolved or digested; whereas the contents of the other bottle containing the glucose and acid will show no change beyond a slight difference in appearance. If you have neither the faculties nor the inclination to make the test for yourself, we have no doubt that your druggist will be glad to try the experi ment. The tubes herewith show the re sults of a test made In our own labora tory, the cuts being from a photograph. No. 1 contained glucose, and No. 2 Paskola. What are we to conclude? One of two things: either thut the so culled "chemists" are Ignorant or dis honest.' Olucosrt tins no digestive properties. This Is a well known fact, whereas Pas kola Is giving relief to thousands of dys peptics, a truth attested by the unsoli cited testimonials that pour In upon us. The presence of digestive ferments In Paskola cannot be determined by chem ical test. No one has ever seen digest ive ferments In a pur form, and the only way to determine their presence Is by observing the effects which they pro duce upon food. This Is a fact recog nized by every authority, and will be found stated in Foster's Physiology and other standard works. Another thing which these Ignorant and jealous rivals huve suld about Pas kolu, Is that Inasmuch as its busts is pre-dlgested slureh. It is calculated to encourage diabetes. We cannot better answer this charge than by quoting a paragraph from a re port made to Mayor Ullroy, of New York, by Dr. Cyrus Kdson, commis sioner of health for the city of New York, nnd for the state of New York. "Pre-digested starch is starch In the exact condition that we And It prepared by the digestive organs for assimilation. It Is pre-eminently a fat-forming, heat-producing- food. Under a diet of pre dlgeated starch or glucose, a man can perform more muscular work than un der any other single article of foood, without which In some form, man can not enjoy life." This letter from Dr. Kdson was writ ten in answer to an Inquiry from the mayor as to whether or not pre-digested starch was healthful. Paskola contains a special form of pre-dlge,sted starch as well as digestive ferments, and Is not alone a fattening food but it aids the digestion of other foods in the stomach, Just as you may see in the above' experiment. The tired, feeble stomach of the dyspeptic Is too weak to do Its duty. It needs a little Vw.l.,- thlu tioln ...... Puskola gives. . Its nse Is at once I followed -.by, a sense of well-being, strength, vig or, and courage. The appetite Im proves and , tho sufferer can eat with comfort where before, dis tress f o 1 low e d every meal. Pas kola corrects emaciation and the palo, thin suf ferers'rapldly gain In weight,;, under 1U use. Consump tives will experi ence a thousand times more bene fit from it trian from,' tho use ' of disagreeable, nau seating cod liver oil, which often does more harm than good. Con sumption need not prove fatal,' if we r can arrest the loss of flesh,' for its victims virtually die of starvation.
