Six Revolvers Stolen From the Russell
Hardware Company's Store
Despite a Danish Dog
A plate glaes window in the Russell
Hardware company's store, at 441 South
Broadway, was broken Friday night
by a burglar, who reached through the
opening and secured six revolvers from
the counter. The theft was not discov
ered until yesterday morning, when the
store was opened. Not farr from the
window lay a cobblestone wrapped, in
a piece of paper which had been used
by a real estate firm as a "for rent"
The members of the firm believe that
the job was the work of hoboes. The de
tectives think that it was done by pro
fessional crooks. There Is a ring around
the hole which they suspect wa>s cut
with a diamond, but when the stone was
driven against the window it did not
break in a circle.
There were two men sleeping In the
gtore all night. They were Secretary
f. S. Johnson and his friend. J. L. Cun
ningham. They did not hear the noise
of the breaking window. A large Dan
ish dog is ariso kept In, the store, but it
was apparently not awakened, as it
raised no disturbance.
This is the third time that burglars
have attempted to enter this store with
in the past six monhts. Last April they
secured' entrance and obtained about
$600 worth of goods. Again, three months
ago, another attempt to break into the
store was made, but the thief was fright
ened away.
Three young men were seen loitering
about the store Friday evening. One of
them approached Mr. Cunningham and
asked for a quarter. Their actions
aroused suspicion at the time, and it is
now thought that they a»re probably the
parties who did the job. The detectives
have a good description of the men.
Frank Lamoree Placed Under Arrest
for a Serious Offense
Frank Lamoree was locked in the city
prison last night for passing worthless
checks. He was arrested, on the street
about 8 ocloek by Detective Hawley.
Lamoree is a young man and a partial
During the past week heisolleged to
have passed a number of worthless
checks aroundi town, the specific charge
on which he was arrested being for pass
ing a check for 113.50 upon W. Harris, a
First street clothier. Here Lamoree
purchased a suit of clothes for $10, and In
payment drew a check for $13.50 on the
First National bank. He received $2.50
In change and left the suit, stating that
he would call for it the following day.
The scheme was worked in exactly the
same manner at several other stores.
A suit would be purchased and Lamoree
would state that he wished to pay for it
at the time but would call after the goods
another day. A check for two or three
dollars more than the actual purchase
price would be given and he was content
with the change. Complaint against the
young fellow was made several days ago
ond the officers have been on the lookout
for him.
Lamoree comes of respectable parents,
who formerly lived in this city, but are
now at Santa Monica. He has been in
trouble for a similar offense several
times before but his father has managed
to keep him out of the penitentiary.

Charity Fete Receipts
The recent charity fete given by Mrs.
S. M. Bradbury at her residence, was not
only successful socially but financially.
The total receipts amounted to about
$800. This amount has been divided
among several of the local charitable
Institutions: The Associated Charities,
Assistance league, Catholic Ladles Aid
society. Cottage Settlement Kinder
garten, St. Vincent's Church Aid soci
ety, Sisters of Charity Orphan Asylum
andi the Happy Home Kindergarten.
Mrs. Bradbury extends her sincere
thanks to the ladles and gentlemen
whose disinterested and valuable serv
ices added so much to the success of the
fete, and she also desires to thank tho
different firms who so kindly loaned fur •
nlture, glassware and materials In the
cause of charity.
A Blind Girl a Successful Farmer
There lives twenty miles from Oak
Hill. Tex., a blind girl, Mary Ashby, who
has from a few acres of land cultivated
by herself cleared about $200 each season
for several years by the growing and
sale of vegetables. She began with no
capital and an unfenced piece of uncul
tivated land. There is now a neat fence
about her domain, a well and pump in
the center, and she has, in addition to
purchasing these, paid for a piano and
a wagon to take her vegetables to mar
ket, which ls twenty miles from her
Every morning during the dry season,
she waters a certain number of plants
until she has gone over the entire place,
when she begins and goes over it agait,
In the same way. The active sense of
hearing which nature has given this
blind girl in lieu of her sight enables her
to detect Insect life easily, and by feeling
with her sensitive fingers she can dis
tinguish the nature and size of the plants
and vegetables she raises.—Louisville
Cyclists' "Rules of the Road" Walk
You can tell a bicycle rider by his

gait, but for the reason that he uncon

On the sidewalks of the crowded
streets of New York and. Brooklyn a gen

friends walking to and from, business.
Almost without exception they pass to
the right when meeting other pedestri
ans, and to the left when passing them
from behind. When, turning a corner
the pedestrian who has learned the cycle
hugs the wall closely if going to the

If all pedestrians would observe the
rules of the road on the sidewalks as well
as the experienced bicyclists observir
them on the highways there would b*
fewer toes trampled, upon and fewer per

There is nothing more annoying to the
participants and nothing more laugh
able to the spectator than to see two

ing from a theater or crossing the bridge

left on the rash individual's shoes, there

a feeling of deep, bitter resentment
against all mankind in his bosom.—New-
York Journal.
The Alligator Swallowed Her Poodle
Rye, N. V.—A big female alligator and
three little ones were found here a few
days ago by Miss Minnie McCulley. She
was driving to the railroad station and
her pretty French poodle, Pet, was fol
lowing after her joyously.
The poodle noticed a black object In
the water of Blind brook just ashismis
tress drove over the rustic bridge. Pel
stopped and approached the bank, bark
ing furiously. Suddenly Mis® McCulley
heard a short sharp yell of agony. She
stopped her cart and turned, to look for
Pet. The dog was not to be seen.
Miss McCulley dismounted, and, asshe
reached the brook, beheld Pet between
the jaws of a good-sized alligator. The
poodle whined plteously as the alligator
sank into the water. The alligator soon
rose to the surface of the pondi with a
wicked look of complacence. A red spot
ln.-the water of the brook; wa» the only
trace of Pet.
Miss McCulley got Into her cart and
drove rapidly into Rye village, where she
found Soloman Ireland, an old sailor
and fisherman. Ireland procured a net
and hurried to Blind brook.
The alligator had crawled onto the
bank of the stream and was sunning It
self. Ireland soon had the alligator in
his net, and, after a brief struggle, the
reptile, which is about three feet long,
was transferred to a box. Ireland con
tinued in his search of the stream think
ing there might he more, and found three
baby " 'gators'* along the banks.
The big alligator and the three little
ores have been placed In a tank and are
being exhibited by Ireland. The only
theory for the presence of the alligators
in Blind brook ls that they may have
escaped from a collection of animals be
longing to some wealthy resident of Rye
or Orienta Point.—New York Herald.
A Phonograph for the Sick Man
Mr. Simons, who lately passed through
a period of critical illness, is now con
valescent, although still unable to leave
the hospital.
While he was fretting over a lack of
entertainment, a friend thought of the
phonograph. Mr. Simons was moved
Into a private room at the hospital and
a phonograph with a megaphone attach
ment was put to work for his benefit.
He would lie there for hours at a tlmf
and listen to brass bands, comic orators
and vaudeville singers, and, although he
would have preferred a real perform
ance in a theater, he enjoyed the enter
tainment very much.
One of Simons' friends gave a dinner
party and. he received an invitation, al
though it was known, of course, that he
could not attend. But the convalescent
was not to be robbed of all the fun. He
sent a phonograph to the dinner party
and had the stories, the laughter and the
music recorded on the cylinder and he
got them al! second-hand next day
Then he had a phonograph sent to his
office, and it took the street noises and
the talk of his employes, and when he
heard these he was homesick for the roar
of wheels on the granite blocks.—Chi
cago Record.

Won His Coffin on a Wager
John Deitzer, for forty years a
resident of Shelbyville, Ind., was
buried Monday In a coffin won on a po
litical wager made many years ago.
Soon after coming to this city deceased
formed the acquaintance of Thomas A.
Hendricks, then a struggling lawyer in
this place. He was a great admirer of
the statesman, and when Governor Hen
dricks" remains lay in state at Indian
apolis, Deitzer was there to extol the
good qualities of his dead friend.
When Hendricks ran for governor of
Indiana in 1872 and. defeated by a nar
row margin Thomas M. Browne, the
story is related that from the day of his
nomination until he was Inaugurated
governor, Deitzer never closed his eyes
in sleep. During the memorable cam
paign Deitzer wagered his all on there
suit, the last bet made by him being $30
against a coffin with Undertaker
Joseph Cummins.
Hendricks was elected, Deltzer's
measure taken and the eoffln made.
Cummins kept it In good shape, too, but
died three year* ago. and Deitzer had
his eoffln taken home, and It was his last
request that he be burled in It, which was
carried out—Chicago Times-Herald.
Oakland, Too
A letter was received In Los Angeles
some days ago from Lake Geneva, Wis
consin, which was written by a man
who asked to have copies of the Los
Angeles papers sent to him, because he
desired to learn something about the
hotels of that city, to which he pro
posed to pay a visit. The papers were
duly sent him, but, alas! not one of them
contained a single advertisement of a
Los Angeles hotel. The Herald remarks
on this Incident: "The hotel keepers of
this city, who owe so much to the press
for proclaiming abroad the advantages
of Southern California and drawing
hither thousands of visitors and home
seekers, do not contribute a dollar in ad
vertising toward maintaining the- daily
press." The indictment would be equally
I good in some other cities, and would not
be very far wrong in Oakland, where the
hotel men are almost unknown through
the medium of the newspapers.—Oak
