THE THAW EXPLOITATION COM?
PANY LIMITED.
When a scion of an enormously
wealthy family gets inti the clutches of
the criminal law, the bar and the faculty,
in the language of Wall street, '-cut
a wat rmelon.'* The lawyers and the
doctors are reputed to have worked
Harry K. Thaw to tbe tune of about
t600,0<>0 already, and they have filed
claims againat him for more than $400,
D00 in addition. Under the dream
stances Thaw has concluded that, being
in tbe asylum for the criminal insane, he
is not getting much more than La has
already paid for. Wherefore be
schedule* his property and petitions te
be adjudicated a bankrupt. He is, how?
ever, in tbe happy condition of one who
can part with all his assets and still be
worth somewhere between haifa mil?
lion and a million, for he has an income
from trust funds of $33,000 and his
lawyers advise him that his crediton
cannot touch that.
While Thaw was In danger ol the
electric chair tbe lawyers and doctors
coull, of course, get anything from him
and his family tbat they demanded, and
they must bitterly deplore their modera?
tion in leaving the family in possession
nf anything. But Thaw bas been
snatched from the chair and yet is not
free, so tbat he hss notning to fear aod
nothing to hope for from the tao profes?
sions and he is quite excusable for re?
fusing to pay any more bills tbat ara not
proved up before a register in bank?
ruptcy.
Tbe operation of getting money out of
i'liHw ought to bave been t> ken over by
a stock company, say, the Thaw Exploit?
ation Company, Limited. Under cap?
able msnagemeut the whole Thaw for?
tune could bave betn acquired before
be verdict of a jury put him beyond the
reach of hope or fear. Matters should
nave been arranged so that tbere would
lu- h third and perhaps even a fourth
trial. Tbe goose tbat bas laid golden
pgga fr r the doctors snd the lawyers bas
not been k'lled; but whu amounts to
almost the same thing, he baa been put
bi youd danger of being killed and he
leoline we trust the confusion of gen?
ders will be pardoned?to Isy a fur.ber
assortment of goldeo eggs.--[Philadel?

A8LEEP UNDER WATER.
As chowing how much at home a man
may be today under water the following
ki an amusing at ry. Some months ago,
while the great battleship Dreadnought
was at Malta, one of the seamen divers
went down to clear her propeller from
some fl'itssm that had become entangled,
and he failed to come up. It chanced
that tbe rest of the battleship'* divers
were ashore, and grave concern was
(eli on the warship for the missing
worker. Signals by telephone and life?
line were sent below, without avail.
In the launch above the throb, throb of
tbe air pump's cylinders went on, but
tbe attendants looked 11 one another io
dismay, fearing some t-traoge tragedy
deep down in those heaving green eeas.
The worst was feared wnen some big
bushes and other tools esme floating ti
the surface, and thereupon the naviga?
ting lieutenant sent ashore an urgent
message for one of the other divers.
The man came on board, dressed im?
mediately, and went below, only ti
come up full of indignation.
"Wby, thst fellow's been asleep all
this time !" he said wrathfully. It waa
true. The man had just bad his lunch,
and finding tbe work much less serious
titan he bad thought, be finished lt In ?
few minutes and then ml comfortably
on one of tbe gisnt blades of tbe Dread?
nought's propeller and went to sleep,
with inquiative fiabea swarming around
him, atticted by the da/./.ling search?
light on his breast. Tbe officeis were
so amused at the occurrence that no
punishment wu inflicted on the lazy
one.
