Thursday afternoon a man was found on Prosnect street in an insensible condition, He wss brought to the Cottage hotel and Dr. Hathaway was called. The stranger's pulse was found to be at sixty and he was breathing heavily. His pockets were searched and a small vial containing laud anum, and a letter which told the story, were found. The contents of the note were as follows: "My name la Charles L. Laffer, Bridge- Dort Conn. No money and no work; and I wont steal nor beg for a living. Good bve. Give my body to a doctor, for It will save your town the trouble of burying it." The doctor administered antidotes ana the patient was soon able to walk around the room and converse a little, ne said he was a batter by trade and that tbe panic bad caused tbe factory to close doors and be bfd started west to look for work and, not finding It. had become despondent and decided that life had on more charms lor him. He has a wife and two children ' The laudanum was purchased of W. F Near & Co. under the pretense ol having a bad earache. About balf of the con tents of the vial was gone. Tbe man was well dressed and a perfect picture of health and should have been thinking about something else than taking bis life Just before he loft town the next day the Enturorlse man interviewed him. Buld be: "I have got out of It and don't think I will ever try it again. My bead and Atnmnr.h feel badlv. After taking the laudanum It was about fifteen minutes be fore I began to get sleepy. I knew when the Dartlea found me. but I could not Dak or raise my hand. One fellow twisted my bead nearly off trying to awaken me, but I was powerless to call a hall on him, although I thought he would kill me, sure."

This celebrated and immortal Individu al arrlycd In town on an early Big Four train Monday, Ills mission leln to shap on up fut and slim men, with Ingenious contrivances which lengthens the length of fat men and widens the width of dim men, without physical Injury to either. "The troublo with fut men," he says, "Is that they lire too wide for their length, ami slim moii are too high for their width, both disproportions being easily, quickly and painlessly overcome by the use of hi contrivances, without breaking any bones, nmsclos, ligaments, blood channels, or dislocating any or gans. Fat men should not seek a reduc tion of their avoirdupois by the use of nnti-fiit nostrums and slim men should not try to put on fut, both having just whiit nature gave them In that Hue, and nature makes no mistake. Man should have Just what nature gives him and no more, and the Improvements that can be made, or should bo made, 1b to sliapo It up different. Tills can bo dono by my contrivances systematically, and the pa tient comes out of the lengthening out process, or the shortening up process, a perfectly shaped man In all his protior tlons, for his size." For two hours ho expatiated on the merits of his contrivances, to the writer, as we sat together on that bench around the corner of Laundon, Wlndecker & Co's. store, and It will Interest citizens of Wellington to know how they would ap pear alter they had been "sized" and shapened up iu J.

He has material enough for a mou 1 feet high If Is was adjusted according to the rules of physical beauty. Evidently, I sec, he is quite well satisfied with himself, but I shall'call on Iilm and not lift the pressure until he consents to bo remodeled." Oris Smith parsed looking for some ono who would listen to a free coinage argument. "There s a man," said J. N., "who U nltogeeher out of whack. He needs shortening up and the pressure shouldn't he lifted until l reduced feet III length and cor rosM)iidlngly widened out." Hon. K. A Horr passed: "There's the other ex treme," said J. X. "Dog days would be fur moro enjoyable to that man If ho was raised 111) I feet higher, which would slim him hii to the right proportions Perry Spruguc passed. " 1 wo feet," suid J. N., "off the top of that m:m spread over the rest of him, In proper thic kness would shanc him un all right." John P. Laundon passed. "There," said J X., "is a perfect siaclnieu ; my contriv ance wouldn't help his shape." Post master Husted nassed. "Small but mighty," wild J. X., "ho ehould be shortened and thickened up a bit. Xot much." Dell Foote passed. "There's a man," said J. N.f "who ought to bo feet hlirh and that's what I shall make him when I get him In my contrivance Mayor Couch passed. "Got a small hay window, I see, needs raising an Inch ; almost a perfect specimen and knows It." C. W. Horr passed. "Material for a man BK tect high," said J. N. Doo Hough ton passed. "Ono foot off the length spread over tho width would shape up that gentleman about right." Jim San ford passed. "My contrivance," said J N., "don't form bay windows so essen tial to the proper fit of swallow-tailed coats, so I could do nothing for that gentleman." J. A. MacComber passed. "There,'- said J. N., "Is about as slim man as I have struck and I am afraid be would have to be 'dipped' before the contrivance could get a pressure on him He would have to be pressed down to 3 feet In height. "J.
