FINALLY GOT HIS INTERVIEW Death of James Creelman Recalls Re markable Exploit of News paper Man. ' James Creelman’s death it Germany while still in the prime of life recalls an exploit of which any newspaper reporter might be proud, observes the Wall Street Journal. He was :in Lon don at the time of the Baring crisis in 18110, and performed the unheard-of feat of securing for the New York Her ald an exclusive interview wiith the governor of the Bank of England. It is a matter of history how the gov ernor. the right Hon. William H. Lid derdale, handled that crisis. He lived to see the Barings successfully liquid ated and stronger than ever, with the financial situation in Argentina re stored, the £3,000,000 gold which he borrowed bF means of acceptances from the Bank of France returned in due course with the seals of the pack ages unbroken. The London market was tided over a desperate emergency with the minimum of disturbance, al though there were some forty failures in the stock exchange. Lidderdale died not long ago, leav ing an estate valued at only £2,000. He was a strong man and an honest one. But the idea of interviewing him was so remote that only an irreverent American would have thought of it. Creelman had no pass key or letters of introduction. He simply went to the Bank of England, and starting with the astonishing “beadle,” worked his way up. He was sent from depart ment to department, to the secret arcfusement of various heads, until he actually found himself in the pres ence of the governor. But the joke failed to explode. Lid derdale was a long-headed Scotchman, much too intelligent not to see the value of publicity at such a time. He was no slave to precedent. He gave Creelman an excellent interview of a frank and reassuring character, which was published in the following Sun day’s New York Herald. It was a great scoop; and the London papers spent money frantically on cable toll getting facts on their own situation from New York for their Monday morning issue. A precedent was set, and since that time English financiers have been more approachable. It may be said also that publicity there, as in Wall rtreet, has done much to clean up ad mitted evils, and to set honest finance right with public opinion. The story is well worth recalling, for it has an obvious moral which should never be forgotten. New Telegraph Code. Anew form of code chart for sim plifying the teaching of the Conti nental telegraph code has been evolved by a Chicago inventor. In place of the usual method of repre senting the diferent telegraphic equiv alents for let ers and figures in the form of dots and dashes, the charac ters are indicated by small and large letters or figures; the former repre senting the dots and the latter the dashes. For instance, the letter “A” is represented as “a A," meaning dot dash The letter “B” is shown as “B bbb” or dash dot dot dot. Thus, by this simple method, the inventor has eliminated the great confusion arising from the dash-dot representations of the various characters. The letters and figures are fixed in the memory of the student as large and small characters instead of in the form of a complicated mass of letters, figures and combinations of dots and dashes. It is stated that this chart has greatly simplified the learning of the code. The Practice of Kicking. Kicking, like charity, should begin at home. It ought to be the duty of everybody at home to object, per sistently and effectively, to the spe cific overcrowded street car, the badly paved road, the encroaching doorstep, the neglected yard, the malodorous cesspool, the irresponsible motor car and the reckless railroad —especially if he have any personal part in the maintenance of similar abuses. If the tendency of these evils were rightly apprehended, if a part only of the ef fort that is expended, presumably, in objecting to generalized, foreign and futile subjects were bestowed on spe cific and tangible details, if we would forego the emotional pleasure of the Impersonal “muck rake” to assail the evil at our very feet —especially if each one of us were careful to avoid offense in matters of the same kind— our country would surely be a much fairer one.—The Unpopular Review. New Subterranean Fauna. Deep mines present conditions like ly to evolve anew subterranean fauna from animals accidentally imprisoned and having sufficient endurance to sur vive the change. At a depth of 750 feet in a mine of the Midlothian Coal field, Scotland. Dr. James Ritchie has found 13 animal forms, and he con cludes that many others may be car ried into deep underground workings. These animals were away from any ventilating shaft reaching the surface, the main shaft being a quarter of a mile distant. They are supposed to have been introduced mostly on the props of Norwegian fir and with the horse fodder, but some may have been drawn in by the suction of the venti lating fans. The species noted were the common mouse, the brown rat, the house sparrow, the great slug, a small spider, two beetles, two flies, the springtail or pit flea, two earthworms and a mycetozoon on the pit props. Reason for Drier in Paint. The linseed oil in paint naturally resists the drying effect of the atmos phere, and because of this it is nec essary to add something to the paint mixture to overcome the resistance. Drier is prepared for this purpose, its function being to absorb oxygen rap idly and convert the film into a hard, insoluble product During this proc ess the linseed oil is changed Into linoxyn, and the drier continues its ixidatlon until the paint film is eventu liiy destroyed. Drier is made by adding salts to a ?ortain amount of linseed oil which Is heated up to about 500 degrees F. The temperature is gllowed to drop ! ind turpentine or a mixture of tur pentine and benzine added. Domestic Discipline. “I'd like to see yon one of those : marching suffragettes.” "Would you?

Her daughter is engaged to the Judge's son. from whom he Is estranged, but the murder Is between the lovers. She plans to clear her husband's memory and asks the Judge’s aid. Deboran Scoville reads the newspaper clippings telling the story of the murder of Algernon Etheridge by John Scoville In Dark Hollow, twelve years before. The judge and Mrs. Sco viHe meet at Spencer's Folly and she shows him how. on the day of the mur der, she saw the shadow of a man, whit tling a stick and wearing a long peaked cap. The judge engages her and her daughter TJeuther to live with him in his mysterious home. Deborah and her law yer, Black, go to the police station and see the stick used to murder Etheridge. She discovers a broken knife-blade point embedded In it. Deborah and Reuther to to liv? with the judge. Deborah sees a portrait of Oliver, the Judge’s 4bn, with a black band painted across the eyes. That night she finds. In Oliver’s room, a cap with a peak like the shadowed one, and a knife with a broken blade-point. Anon ymous letters and a talk with Miss Weeks increase her suspicions and fears. She finds that Oliver was in the ravine on the murder night. Black warns her and shows her other anonymous letters hinting at Oliver's guilt. CHAPTER Xl—Continued. “Madam, we have said our say on this subject. If you have come to see the matter as I see It, I can but con gratulate you upon your good sense, and hope that It will con tinue to prevail. Reuther is worthy of the best—” he stopped abruptly. “Reuther is a girl after my own heart,” he gently supplemented, with a glance toward his papers lying in a bundle at his elbow, “and she shall not suffer because of Uiis disappointment to her girlish hopes. Tell her so with my love.” It was a plain dismissal. Mrs. Sco ville took It as such, and quietly left the room. As she did so she was ap proached by Reuther, who handed her a letter which had just been delivered It was from Mr. Black, and read thus: We have found the rogue and have suc ceeded in inducing him to leave town. He’s a man in the bill-sticking business and he owns fo a grievance against the person we know. Deborah’s sleep that night was with out dreams. *••••** About this time the restless pacing of the judge in his study at nights became motw frequent and lasted longer. In vain Reuther played her most cheerful airs and sang her sweet est songs, the monotonous tramp kept up with a regularity nothing could break. “He’s worried by the big case now being tried before him,” Deborah would say, when Rquther’s eyes grew wide and misty in her sympathetic trouble. And there was no improb ability in the plea, for it was a case of much moment, and of great local interest. A man was on trial for his life and the circumstances of the case were such that the feeling called forth was unusually bitter; so much so, in deed, that every word uttered by the counsel and every decision made by the judge were discussed from one end of the county to the other, and in Shelby, if nowhere else, took prece dence of all other topics, though it was a presidential year and party sympathies ran high. The more thoughtful spirits were in clined to believe in the innocence of the prisoner; but the lower elements of the town, moved by class prejudice, were bitterly antagonistic to his cause and loud for his conviction. The time of Judge Ostrander's office was nearly up, and his future continu ance on the bench might very easily depend upon his attitude at the pres ent hearing. Yet he, without apparent recognition of this fact, showed with out any hesitancy or possibly without self-consciousness, the sympathy he felt for the man at the bar, and ruled accordingly almost without variation. A week passed, and the community was ali agog, in anticipation of the judge's charge in the case just men tioned. It was to be given at noon, and Mrs. Scoville, conscious that he had not slept an hour the night be fore (having crept down more than once to listen if his step had ceased), approached him as he prepared to leave for the courtroom and anxiously asked if he were quite well. “Oh. yes, I'm well,” he responded sharply, looking about for Reuther. The young girl was standing a little behind him, with his gloves in her hand —a custom she had fallen info in her desire to have his last look and fond good morning. “Come here, child," said he, In a wav to make her heart heat; and, as he took the gloves from her hand, he stooped and kissed her on the fore head —something he had never done 1h fore. "Let me see you smile,” said he. “It's a memory I like to take with me into the courtroom.” But when in her pure delight at his caress and the fatherly feeling which gave a tremor to his simple request, she lifted her face with that angelic look of hers which was far sweeter and far more moving than any smile, he turned away abruptly, as though he had been more hurt than comfort ed. and strode out of the house with out another word.. DOOM FOR DEER AND HARE Extermination of Game Animals Planned to Avert the Annual Great Forest Fires. Extermination of deer and rabbit in New Jersey is planned by the state forestry commission as the only ef : fective means of protecting the state woodlands against forest fires such as destroyed nearly $200,000 worth of property during the first two weeks ! of the recent gunning season. The commission decided to seek the 1 co-operation of the state fish and game commission in procuring legislation | revoking the closed season for deer and rabbit. In the discussion preced ing the adoption of this resolution U was freely admitted that such t course would ultimately result In th< extermination of deer and rabblU. which are now to be found in consid erable numbers lo various parts of the state That the action of the forestry com mission will stir up the opposition of mot of the Th.OflC hunters with which ” rey is credited seems almost WAUSAU PILOT Morning passed and the noon came, bringing Deborah an increased un easiness. When lunch was over and Reuther sat down to her piano, the feeling had grown into an obsession, which had soon reeolved itself into a definite fear. She found herself so restless that she decided upon going out Donning her quietest gown and veil, she slipped out of the front door, hardly knowing whither her feet would carry her. They did not carry her far—not at this moment, at least. On the walk outside she met Miss Weeks hurrying toward her from the corner, stumbling in her excitement At sight of Debo rah’s figure 6he paused and threw up her hands. “Oh, Mrs. Scoville, such a dreadful thing!" she cried. “Look here!” And. opening one of her hands, she showed a few torn scraps of paper whose familiarity made Deborah's blood rcn cold. “On the bridge,” gasped the little lady, leaning against the fence for support. “Pasted on the railing of the bridge. I should never have seen it, nor looked at It, if it hadn’t been that 1—” “Don’t tell me here,” urged Debo rah. “Let’s go over to your house. See. there are people coming.” Once in the house, Deborah allowed her full apprehension to show itself. “What were the words? What was on the paper? Anything about —” The little woman’s look of horror stopped her. “It’s a lie, an awful, abominable lie But think of such a lie being pasted “Come Here, Child,” Said He, In a Way to Make Her Heart Beat. up on that dreadful bridge for anyone to see. After twelve years, Mrs. Sco ville! After —” “Miss Weeks—” Ah, the oil of that golden speech on troubled wa ters! What was its charm? “Let me see those lines or what there is left of them so that 1 may share your feelings. They must be dreadful—” “They are more than dreadful. They are for the kitchen fire. Wait a mo ment and f.hen we will talk.” But Deborah had no mind to le: these pieces escape her eye. Nor did she fail. At the end of fifteen min utes she had the torn bits of paper arranged in their proper position and was reading these words: The scene of Olive der's crime “The beginning of the end!” wi. Deborah’s thought. “If, after Mr. Black's efforts, a charge like this in found posted up in the public ways, the ruin of the Ostranders is deter mined upon, and nothing we can do can stop it.” In five minutes more she bad said good-by to Miss Weeks and was on her way to the courthouse. Ae she approached it she was still further alarmed by finding this square full of people, standing in groups or walk ing impatiently up and down with their eyes fixed on the courthouse doors. Within, there was the uneasy hum, the anxious look, the subdued movement which marks an universal suspense. Announcement bad been made that the jury had reached their verdict, and couneel were resuming their places and the judge his seat Those who had eyes only for the latter—and these were many—noticed a change in him. He looked older by years than when he delivered his charge. Not the prisoner himself gave greater evidence of the effect which this hour of waiting had had upon a heart whose covered griefs were, consciously or unconsciouely, re vealing themselves to the public eye He did not wish this man sentenced This was shown by his charge—the most one-sided one he had given in all his career. Silence, that awful precursor of certain. On the other jand. farmers who say their crops are destroyed by deer and rabbits may line up on the other side and make the light inter esting.

A hush!--then, the clear voice of the foreman: “We are." “How do you find? Guilty or not guilty?” Another hesitation. Did the fore man feel the threat lurking in the air about him? If so. he failed to show it in his tones as he uttered the words which released the prisoner: “Not guilty.” A growl from the crowd, almost like that of a beast stirring In its lair, then a quick cessation of ail hubbub as every one turned to the Judge to , whose one-sided charge they attrib uted this release. Deborah experienced in her quiet corner no alleviation of the fear which had brought her into this forbidding spot and held her breathless through these formalities. *- For the end was not yet. Through all the turmoil of noisy departure and the drifting out into the square of a vast, dissatisfied throng, she had caught the flash of a bit of paper (how introduced into this moving mass of people no one ever knew) passing from hand to hand, toward the soli tary figure of the judge, its delay as it reached the open space between the last row of seats and the Judge’s bench and its final delivery by some officious hand, who thrust it upon his notice just as he was rising to leave. Deborah saw his finger tear its way through the envelope and his eyee fall frowningly on the paper he drew out. Then the people’s counsel and the counsel for the defense and such clerks and hangers-on as still lingered in the upper room experienced a de cided sensation. The judge, who a moment before had towered above them all in mel ancholy but impressive dignity, shrunk with one gasp into feebleness and sank back stricken, If not uncon scious, into his chair. it happened suddenly 2nd showed her the same figure she had seen once before —a man with faculties sus pended, but not impaired, fac’ng them all with open gaze but absolutely dead for the moment to his own condition and to the world about. But, horrible as this was, what she saw going on behind him was infinite ly worse. A man had caught up the bit of paper Judge Ostrander had let fall from his hand and was opening his lips to read it to the curious people surrounding him She tried to stop him. She forced a cry to her lips which should have rung through the room, but which died away on the air unheard The terror which had paralyzed her limbs had choked her voice. But her ears remained true. Low as he spoke, no trumpet-call could have made its meaning clearer to Deborah Scoville than did these words: We know w-hy you favor criminals. Twelve years is a long time, but not long enough to make wise men forget CHAPTER XII. “The Misfortunes of My House.” Schooled as most of them were to face with minds secure and tempers quite unruffled the countless surprises of a courtroom, the persons within bearing paled at the insinuation con veyed in these two sentences, and with scarcely the interchange of a glance or word, drew aside in a silence which no man seemed inclined to break. As for the people still huddled in the doorway, they rushed away helter-skel ter into the 3treet, there to proclaim the judge’s condition and its probable cause —an event which to many quite eclipsed in interest the more ordinary one which had just released to free dom a man seemingly doomed Few persons were now left in the great room, and Debo ah, embarrassed to find that she was the only woman present, was on the point cf escaping from her corner when she perceived a movement take place in the rigid form from which she had not yet withdrawn her eyes, and. regarding Judge Os trander more attentively, -he caught the gleam of his suspicious eyes as he glanced this way and that to see if Lis lapse of consciousness had been noticed by those about him. Wherever the judge looked he saw abstracted faces and busy hands, and. taking heart at not finding himself watched, he started to rise. Then memory came—blasting, overwhelm ing memory of the letter he had been reading: and, rousing with a start, he looked down at his hand, then at the floor before him, and, seeing the letter lying there, picked It up with T secret, sidelong glance to right and left, which sank deep into the heart of the st*M watchful Deborah. If those about him saw, they made no motion. Not an eye looked round and not a head turned as he straight ened himself and proceeded to leave the room. Only Deborah noted how his steps faltered and how little he was to be trusted to find his waj un guided to the door. It lay to the right and he was going left. Now he stum bles—isn’t there any on: to—yes, she is not the sole one on watch. The same man who had read aloud the note and then dropped it within reach, had stepped after him, and kindly, it artfully, turned him towards the proper place of exit. As the two dis appear, Deborah wakes from her trance, and, finding herself alone among the seats, hurries to quit her corner and leave the building. The glare—the noise of the square, as she dashes down into it seems for the moment unendurable The push ing, panting mass of men and women COMING DOWN TO LANGUAGE Congressman Surely Named a Combi nation That It Would Be Hard to Beat. At a dinner the other evening he talk topic turned to a bunch of things difficult to pronounce, whereat an ap propriate anecdote was exploded by Congressman Edwin Y. Webb of North Carolina. Down at the cigar store some time ago, the congressman said, the regu lars were talking about the war and remarking how it gave one something worse than the faceache to pronounce the Russian names. A man named Benners, who was sitting near, largely smiled. "Those Russian names are noth ing." he remarked. "Yon Just ought to hear what I stack up against in my own borne every day of my life.” "Wdsat’s that?” demanded one of the regulars, with an amazed expression. "Do you mean to say that you have somebody in your family who can put a kink in the czar’s syllabic twists?" "Well. I should say that 1 have!" of which she has now become a part closes about her, and for the moment she can see nothing but faces —faces with working mouths und blazing eyes Thick as the crowd •.ru in front, it was even thicker here, nod f r more tumultuous. Word had gone about that the father of Oliver Ostrander had been given his lesson at last, and the curiosity of the populace had risen to fever-heat in their anxiety to t >e how the proud Ostrander would bear himself In his precipitate downfall They had crowded there to see and they would see. He was evidently not prepared to see his path quite so heavily marked out for him by the gaping throng; but after one look, he assumed some show of his old commanding presence and He Assumed Some Show of His Old Commanding Presence. advanced bravely down the steps, aw ing some and silencing all, until he had reached his carriage step and the protection of the officers on guard Then a hoot rose from some far-off quarter of the square, and he turned short about and the people saw his face. Despair had seized it, and if any one there desired vengeance, he had it. The knell of active life had been rung for this man. He would never remount the courthouse steps, or face again a respectful jury. (TO BE CONTINUED.) FOUGHT TO DEATH OVER PIG Possession of Porker the Cause of Sharp Skirmish Between Get mans and French. Even pigs figure sometimes in the news from tho front and, as might be expected, in somewhat of a comical light. But, says a Paris dispatch, they have caused a tragedy also. One pig was the cause of a battle in which 30 Germans were killed and another was made to poso as a corpse to save him from the enemy. In Ban-dc-Sapt, north of Saint Die, both French and Germans from their trenches out a fine fat porker in a pen, just between the two lines. Both formed parties to go out and capture the porcine delicacy, but the French reached there first. They fastened a rope about the animal’s hind legs and dragged him back to their trenches with the Germans close behind. So heated did the controversy over the pig become that it finally de veloped into a night battle In which the Germans were beaten, losing, be sides the 30 dead, a number of wounded. The other pig had just been killed by a farmer in Flanders when It was reported that the Germans, always eager for such titbits as fresh pork, were near at hand. Determined to save his property, the quick-witted Bel gian took the carcass to his room, tucked it in his bed, placed candles over the sheeted form and was pray ing fervently when a German soldier entered the room. The .soldier tip toed out when he discovered that he had come upon a chamber of death. Differentiating Dirigibles. The London crowd which gapes cheerfully at the army airship maneu vering over the city always asks itself whether it is looking at a friendly ves sel or a Zeppelin. It is apparently ignorant of the difference of design, and so free from “nerves” that the doubt does not disturb it Probably if a Zeppelin really did come the av erage Londoner would crowd up for a good place to see the bomb dropping The instinct for a front seat seems to be stronger than that, of self-preserva tion. The Schutte-Lanz airship is not unlike an ordinary nonrigid airship in the shape of the balloon. It is not cylindrical, but whale shaped, like a submarine. But in construction it is like a Zeppelin, with a rigid aluminum framework. It is evidently considered a successful type, for Germany has been building as many of the Schutte i.anz type as of the Zeppelin. The name is a compound of the names of designer and builder. The inventor was Schutte, and Lanz is the name of the firm that constructs them Unkind Comment.
