AISLE'S ACCURATE AIM
WINOS A PBISONEB WHO WAS
TBYING TO ESCAPE
CHICKEN THIEF CAPTURED
His Name Is Carl Schillinger and He
Ia Not a Colored Man—Darky
Population Vindicated
s As was exclusively told by The Herald
yesterday, the police detectives toicctieded
Just Thursday in arresting the burglar who
had been nobbing chicken roosts tor some
weeks past. He was subjected to a si.arch
ing interrogation by the officers and con
fessed his complicity in ail of those crimes.
He agreed to accompany the officers yisuv
day and show them where and how he had
entered the various hem houses. He wont to
several places, add after leaving oneot them
made a dash for liberty. He was com
manded to halt, but continued in his Might
until a bullet fired by Detective Auble broke
his right arm. Karl Schillinger is the name
& the self -confessed burglar, and he now
occupies a cot in one of the wards of the
county hospital, as he is too ill to be ar
raigned.
The first hen roost to suffer from the dep
redations of the mysterious thief was that
in the rear of the residence of O. T. John
son at 1221 Orange street. The deteetiives
investigated the premises, and about the
only clue to the burglar, in addition to the
empty lion house, was found in toot prints
.URL SCHILLINGER
Which had hewn made in a tennis court sit
uated between the residence of Air. John
son and Mr. Bacon, whose barn was also
entered. It waa evident that the person
who had made the impressions in the gravel
of the court wore rubber heels. A careful
measurement was made of the print by De
fective Auble. This footprint was a small
clue to work upon, and for awhile all the
efforts of the torce were fruitless t.> get any
trace of tlhe thief. Ilm roosts wore visited
in that neighborhood marly even- night
and dozens of fowls wore carried off at a
time. As many as three different robberies
of chicken houses iif a single night would be
reported. Extra policemen on bicycles,
horses, in wagons and on Soot were detailed
to patrol that distlrict, but the thief waxed
rich and the hen houses desolate lor a week
or more. Some nights ago Special Officer
Foster and Mounted Officer Woodward
ohaaed a mysterious ma.n and shot at bim,
but the fellow escaped, lt was then dhought
that he waa the much-wanted chicken thief,
and so it proved to be. OfficerKicbardson
baited a man several evenings ago, but the
man was able to satisfactorily explain hia
presence in that locality, although he was
no ot.her than Schillinger.
Several days ago the officers had their
Suspicion* directed to Karl Schillinger. The
officers motioed also that he wore rubber
hee'is. He was shadowed for awhile, and
theri it was decided to bring him into the
police statical. He was placed under arrest
Friday by Detectives Auble and Flammer.
The foot of the. prisoner was measured and
found to correspond with the impression
takr;n of tlhe footprints in the tifnnis enurt.
This circumstance sod other evidence
caused the officer! to charge the man with
the offenses. He at first denied his guilt,
but finally broke down and admitted that
he and he alone was responsible bvr the
raids. TTr mc.ntiitrrd the names of the- own
ers of some of tlhe places ami described the
location of others. He, said that he hail
stolon the bicycle from the place of Krert
Herr. the ticket agent of the Southern Pa
cific railway.* some nights previous. He
claimed tint he disposed of fhe> chickens
and turkeys to a dealer on Sixth street, near
Olive. The bicycle had bean hidden behind
some billbords opposite the electric power
house on Central ayenue and Sixth streets,
while the turkey had been left at the store
on Sixth street. At first the detectives were
rrt inclinod to believe all his statements,
but he agreed to go witih t hem to where the
bicycle had been left. The detectives ac
companied the man, and sure enough, Mr.
Herr's wheel was leaning against "tthe bill
boards, ris- Schillinger had olartmed. The
turkeys wore found aa Schillinger had pre
dicted, He also took tlrem to tho place of
A. W. Ptohl on Kohelr street, whore he had
stolen some chickens.
Yesterday Schillinger started with Defec
tives Auble a:nd Klnmmer to the scene ot his
other robberies. The officers intended at
first to p T nee. the handcuffs on tbe prison* r.
but Schillinger pleaded earnestly against
this, and afl*un?d the officers they need have
m anxirtv that he would attempt to escape.
In view of the fact thnt Schillinger was do
ing, the officers more of a favor than he waa
himself in tellinz every tlhiru about nil
thefts, Auble and l'lammer decided to ac
cede to the man's request. They according
ly placed themselves on eit her side of dim,
in order to Pa Ice all precautions agair«t any
bo't on his purt. lie cave nn sign of such
intention until after they had been away
from the police station perhaps an hour 01
mere.
The chiclteß house nf O. T. .Tohn«nn was
fir<t visited. Pohi'lineer explained hew he
had effe-lfd an entrance by opening the
rate, as the fence was very hicrh: how he
Aad cntten into the hrn house, and se
cured all of the birds. He had not had
the aid of a hnr'c nnd wagon tn carry r.fT
his plunder, ai had been ranposed. He
used enrnv pricks, nnd would fill them with
birds, and if necessary make two or more
trins each niriit to remove all the fowls.
Schillinger then went to the barn of Mr.
Bacon, which is located close to the hen
house of Mr. Johnson, and ala* explained
how the robbery of the barn had been ac
complished.
As several dozens of chickens had been se
cured at these places, it was* suggested that
Schillinger go to the residence of Fred Herr,
on Bonnie Brae stieet near Seventh, and
explain how he operated when stealing two
turkeys .and a bicycle. This the prisoner
readily assented to, and the trio started
(iown Bixel street toward Seventh street.
While the men were on Bixel street the
detectives kept close to their prisoner, who
seemed to he quite nervous, and was
glancing furtively about him. Schillinger
lescnted such precaution, for, he said, with
a shrug of the shoulders: "Oh, you fellows
need not worry about mc. I ain't going to
run away.*'
The trio approached the edge of an em
bankment, and ran down the bank to reach
the sidewalk on Bixel street. Schillinger
went faster than the officers', and when the
bottom was reached he was a few feet in
advance. He realized the lead, for with
out warning of any kind he sprang forward,
and started on a dead run sou*: on Bixel
street toward Seventh. Both of the of
ficers are rapid runners, too, and nt once
gave chase, but Schillinger seemed pos
sewed with wings, for he toon opened a gap
between himself and the detectives.
"Stop, or I'll shoot I" yelled Auble, draw
ing his revolver. Schillinger paid no atten
tion, but continued faster, if possible, than
before. Auble had an experience with an
escaping burglar about four years!ago, and
it was necessary on that occasion to wing
the man before he could be brought to a
stop. Bean was the fellow's name, and he
was caught while attempting to commit a
burglary in a house on Temple street.
Auble commanded him to halt, but Bean
tried to escape, and the detective shot him
through the right lung. Bean nearly died
from the effects of the shot. Although Auble
wanted to apprehend Schillinger he did not
cue to risk taking the man's life. Schil
linger was about titty yards in advance of
the officers, when Auble raised his revolver,
a 44-caliber Smith and Wesson, and, taking
careful aim at the running man's legs, tired.
The bullet struck about thirty inches above
the sidewalk. Schillinger redoubled his ef
forts to escape after he heard the bullet
strike against a fence close to him, but
Auble fired a second shot. This time the
bullet went high, because Auble say* hia
toe struck against a rock, causing him to
stumble and elevate the revolver slightly,
just as the cartridge was tired. The bullet
struck Schillinger in the right arm, be
tween the shoulder and elbow. Without
a word the running man stopped abruptly,
and with his arm hanging helpless at his
side, waited lor the arrival of his pursuers.
"Say, boys, I'll go back with you." he
said. "You've shot me in the arm."
The officers hurried Schillinger to the re
ceiving hospital, where Dr. Hagan, assisted
by Dr. Barber, attended the injuries of the
prisoner. The bullet had causer! a com
pound fracture of the arm, and splintered
the bone. Several large pieces of bone were
removed before the surgeons could wire the
ends of the break together and dres.s the
wound in the flesh. Schillinger was then
sent to the county hospital to await the
effect of his injury.
The detectives tiled three complaints in
Justice Morrison's court, charging Schillin
ger with having committed burglaries of tha
chicken coops'of A. W. Stahl of 700 Kohler
street, (i. S. Heir of 7-'io South Bonnie Brae
street, and F. O. Johnson of 1221 Orange
vtreet. Schillinger will be arraigned on
tho-e charges when he will have recovered
sufficiently from his wound.
Schillinger is a powerfully-built man,
about 30 years of age. He first came to this
country about fourteen years ago from Ger
many, but went back and served four years
in the German army. He returned about
two years ago, when he married a widow
much older than himself, with four children.
They soon, however, separated. Mrs.
Schillinger lives at No. 551 Ceres avenue.
Schillinger also has a sister, Mrs. Charles
Erhardt, who lives at No. 268 South Los An
geles street, but she has had nothing to do
with him for some months.
Schillinger has been "crooked" for two
years, but was never before arrested, never
associating with thieves, and doing his work
alone. He has confessed to eighteen cases
oi chicken stealing since November 20th.
Schillinger's relatives were notified that
he was under arrest and wounded, but they
did not call at the station to tee him. He
roomed at 320 South Mam street.

FORMOSAN CITY ABANDONED
Residents of Plague-Stricken Teckham
Leave It
The Japaneae government lias ordered
the destruction of the city of Teckham,
Formosa, and the removal of its inhabitants
to a new location. The city is situated on
| the northwest coast of the island and has
been frequently subjected to pestilence. In
1806 and 18U7 plagues visited Teckham with
enormouil fatality. This fact being called
ito the attention of the government, an in
vestigation was ordered by sanitary experts,
who reported that the city was built upon
a swamp; whereupon an order was issued to
the governor to select a new location as con
venient to the old as possible, where the na
tural conditions 1 were healthful. A new city
was laid out, and each property holder in
i the old one was l assignedi a site that cor
responded in area with that he occupied
,ii Teckham and was given twelve months
to move his buildings and belongings. Sew- j
eis., railroads and sidewalks, public build
ings, water works aud all other public im
provements were laid out by the govern
ment in the new city without expense to the
people, but they were required to pay the
cost of the removal of their own property.
Most of the houses and other buildings, in
Teckham are built of very light wooden
material. —Snn Francisco Argonaut.

LOS ANGELES HERALD, SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER JB. !»•«
MAY LIVE IN THREE CENTURIES
WACO, Tex., Dec. 17—Isaac Brock is IK
years old. Isaac is a citizen of McLennar
county, and no longer hunts' deer and wile
turkeys, owing to dimness of vision which
has afflicted him for about two years. H<
ia getting old, he says, and cannot hold hi!
rifle steady nor draw a fine bead as he die
until a few years back.
| His old rifle still hangs on the buckhom
rack, and he likes to take it down and clear
it up. Once it was a flintlock, but in 184(
he had it altered and now it shoots with t
i percussion cap. He talked in 1805 about
changing it to a breechloader, but his son!
bought him a Winchester, and with the new
fangled weapon he manages to be patient
He always preferred the old deer rifle, lot
j with it he was infallible as a marksman un
: til his eyesight weakened.
I'ncle Isaac was born in Buncomb county,
North Carolina, March 1, 1788; therefore he
'is 110 years old. Recently he remarked:
"If I live until 1900 I will have lived in three
centuries."
He grew up among the soldiers who won
the independence of his country. He saw
Washington and Light Horse Harry Lee.
He was a mere boy when he met the living
heroes of the American revolution, and his
heart grew full of zeal from such associa
tions. When the second war with Great
Britain commenced he enlisted and saw the
redcoats in battle array on more than one
occasion. He condemns the proposer. Anglo-
American alliance, remarking tnat France is
the original aud only true friend of this
nation.
After the war of ISI2 Isaac moved to
Georgia and engaged with limited success
in gold mining. Being a g>od blacksmith,
he earned a li'tle money it repairing tools
for the miners and farmers. With his Geor
gia friends he concluded to try his luck in
Texas, and hither he came with a small
j colony when Texas was a Spanish posse?
sion. The Georgians and North Carolin
i ians settled in the Nacogdoches district and
> had thrilling experiences with the lawless
element, who practiced kidnaping slaves
and occasionally murdered settlers. L'ncle
Isaac was tie hunter for the colony of ten
families, all depending on his rille for meat.
During that dramatic period of his life
he married Lucinda Caroline Hill, a fron
tier belle, who shared with him his hunter's
lodge and bore him four children. He was
a scout in the Texas war for independence,
'and was thrown frequently into company
with Davy Crockett, whom he regards as
one of the world's greatest heroes. He was
a personal friend of Sam Houston and had
the confidence of that warrior and states
man.
ln 1861 he was in Rusk county, Texas,
and was impressed into service by the agents
of the Southern Confederacy, for, although
far past the age of exemption, his skill in
iron and steel was regarJed as indispensable
i and he was put at the head of an armory.
, A cannon he cast for the southern army was
.used in more than one battle. Uncle Isaac
'was at heart a Union man, and got into
trouble with Mr. Davis' government on
more than one occasion. He is nearer being
a typical southerner now than he was dur
ing the war. He is pi oil i of nis country
and favors territorial expansion.
In the Indian wars occurring since 1865
to protect Texas settlers from Lipans, Co
manches and Apaches he was conspicuous
for sk:ll and ga.lantry. His woodcraft,
horsemanship, iron constitution and ability
to endure all the vicissitudes of frontier life
made him an invaluable ranger under I!ip
Ford, John B. Jones, Sul Koss, George B.
Erath and other great leader* in those dark
and troublesome days.
In the double cabin on the Bosque, quivers
full of war shafts, Indian hand-made saddles,
sliieds, bows, spears, feather headwear and
other war toggery of the savages are pre
served and will pass down to future genera
tions as proofs of the prowess ot Isaac
Brock, when the old man, who is still in
good health, shall have passed away,
i The Indian encounters he engaged in for
1 defense and rescue would give a theme to a
writer which would need no embellishing.
Every page of the old man's history ia thrill-
I ing.
After the death of his first wife he fell in
love with Sarah Jane Sparks, a lovely Texas
girl, courted her, and the couple were united
in wedlock in a primitive meeting-house, by
jnn old pioneer preacher. The second wife
still lives, the happy mother of five chil-
I drcn, making sixteen children born to the
I old ranger.
For many years he resided at the Uosque
Falls, near China Springs, eighteen miles
west of Waco. He now resides with Ed
I Drahn, who married his daughter. The
I home of the Drahns is near Valley Mills,
1 . a
Bosque county, about twenty miles from
Waco, and there he will end his days.
Last week, at the request of l'resident J.
C. Deane of the Texas Photographers' asso
ciation, Uncle Isaac came to W aco and sat
for his picture. ln his hand he held a
stick cut from the grave of General Andrew-
Jackson, which has been carried by him ever
since when occasion seemed to call for the use
of a cane.
Uncle Brock is a dignified old gentleman,
showing few signs of decrepitude. His fam
ily Bible is still preserved, and it shows that
the date of his birth is written 110 years ago.
He is modest and retiring. He does not rel
ish being made the subject of a newspaper
article. He said: "When 1 lived al the
Falls I caught trout frequently, and a news
paper editor who wrote about nic made my
fish too heavy. lt caused my neighbors to
laugh."
ln the trip from Valley Mills to Waco
Uncle Isaac rode in a farm wagon, accom
panied by his son, and when he got here he
was able to walk around the city and return
the next day. When he was 99 years old
he shod a horse all around, and he says he
thinks he could shoe a horse now by taking
his time at he job.
i He fought, as has been stated, in the war
of 1812, the war between the Texas republic
and Mexico, and the war between the United
States and Mexico. In the civil war he was
gunner in a battery at Galveston, and was
under fire of the I'nited States gunboats.
He is, therefore, a soldier of four wars, ln
I addition to having fought in the four wars
I mentioned, he fought' Indians on the Texas
■ frontier foe six years, and slew one in a hand
;to hand combat.
Attention was called to him recently when
he was in court as a witness to testify in a
ISAAC BROCK
land suit. The question of his age came up,
and he deposed that he was 110 years old.
It did not surprise any one, for the lawyers
and spectators knew L'ncle Isaac Brock's
age. Many of them had seen him when the
annual fish frys took place at the Bosque
Falls, and they knew Im wonderful history.
He is held in reverence by the hunters, as
was the old arrow-maker, whose daughter,
Hiawatha, wedded.
It was considered a great privilege to sit
with l'ncle Isaac on a log and fish for trout,
and when he took the tourist under his pat
ronage tlie fish always allowed themselves
to be caught. A standing injunction of his
in parting with a guest, was: "Don't tell
the editor that you caught a nine-pound
fish. Trout don't grow that big. If you
say nine pounds, mention that it was a cat
fish."
l'ncle Isaac Brock may live far into 1900.
He is still a useful citizen, enjoying life, and :
possesses a hopeful heart. He says he hopes
and expects to see his grandchild, aged 2, a
grown man.
MR. STORY'S AMIABLE SUBJECTS
The Painter Tells of the Distinguished
People Who Have Sat for Him
Painters are good company. They have '
I seen so much, their powers of observation
are so acute, and, with rare exception, their
sense of humor so well developed that an
! hour with them means more than an hour
I with most people ot artistic profession.
•Julian Story is in these respects exception
' ally interesting. The son of the great poet
| sculptor, W. W. Story, with a youth of art
associations - behind him such as. comes sel
dom in a century, and a manhood of art as
j tociationa that he has made for himself, his
claim to opportunities for observation be
comes pretty well established.
He has the exquisitely developed tact of
the Italian, and iv a career that requires
intercourse with the world at large and the
distinguished world in particular, tact is so
necessary that without it even genius never
gets very far, until it is dead and can no
longer make people uncomfortable by rub
bing the rough edges of life.
If any man needs tact beyond another it
lis the artist—painter or sculptor. If he is
: not obliged;to move the world he is obliged
to move individuals, which is often more
' difficult.
But Mr. Story's lot has fallen in pleasant
places and in none more pleasant than the
instance of the Prince of Wales, who sat
i to him for his portrait a year ago.
"He is the kindest and most genial of
l men," said Mr. Story, "and when I asked
him to give me a sitting he referred me to
his equerry, General Clarke. I called upon
i him at Marlborough house and obtained a
glimpse of the demands upon the time of
royalty. In a book there was written down
Iby half hours engagements for the next two
weeks ahead. But a f«w days later came a
letter promising an hour, though my heart
fell at the prospect of so short a sitting.
Things turned out more fortunately for me |
than 1 then feared and he gave me seven sit
tings instead of only one.
"The prince would drive down to my stu
dio in the morning in his private hansom
unaccompanied and always smoking a ci
gar. He;is a great lover of music and has a
quick eye for costumes and generally comes
back between acta at Coven t garden bo apeak
to Mrs. Fames Story when she sings. But
his life is one of such constant occupation
that even the time during the sittings at my
studio was utilized in arranging details with
General Clarke relating to the wedding of
his daughter, Princess Maude.
" 'By the way,' he said to me one morn
ing, 'shall you see tho wedding?' 'No, sir,'
I' replied. 1 have a dislike to crowds and I
spoke, of the masses likely to clog the route
of the procession. 'But 1 meun to send you
an invitation,' he said. The invitation came,
and 1 had a fine view. The next time the
prince came he asked immediately, 'Were |
you at the wedding? I didn't see you.'
"That is exactly the point with him. He
is the most thoughful and simple of men,
but for all that there is always sustained
the recollection that he is the Prince of j
Wales. If some have forgotten this fact
they have never repeated the experiment.
"1 painted him in the robesof the chancel
lor of the University of Wales. The robes
are of black damask embroidered heavily
with; gold and with a great deal of gold lace
On the short sleeves. The only color was the
blue ribbon of the Order of the Garter,
which he wore across his breast.
"Another interesting sitter was Mrs.
Humphrey Ward. It was just after her
first great success and her husband, who
was the don of my old college at Oxford,
asked me to come over from Paris to paint
her portrait. They had taken a place,
Hampden house, for the summer. She is |
a most interesting woman and has a strong
face.
"One day I found a bit of paper pinned
at the front of the canvas, and it had there J
lines on it—but really you had best not
print them, lt would seem conceited.
"But they must be printed—they are too
good to lose. They run:
wife has this inscription o'er her por
tal:
'One story made her famous, one immortal.'
"I painted the portrait of Cardinal How
ard, who is now dead, for his relative, the
Duke of Norfolk.
"It is a mistake to suppose that the robes
of a cardinal are scarlet; they are more of
a rose. He wore the usual lace robe over
the rose and a capo of the same color. I
asked him whether I might not break the
expanse of the cape, and whether he had
not a collar or chain he might wear over
it. He smiled quietly and said: 'Well, I
might wear the chain of a cardinal vicar, 1
but that would be rather an anticipation.'
I prevailed upon him to do so, and before
the portrait was finished his appointment
was announced.
"He had been a life guardsman, and the
stride of the soldier showed under his
robes, and to see him march up rhe aisle,
of St. Peter's in Home was an imposing
sight."
Air. Story during the year will set up his
studio in many lands. Until the end of the
opera season in New York, which closes in
the early spring, he will paint in that city.
London will follow. Then will come a so
journ in Italy, on the borders of the forest
of Vallonibroso, of which Story, the elder,
a - id so many distinguished men before him
have written, and finally, in the autumn, in
Paris, in the Place dcs Etats L'nis, a studio
that is strongly attractive to artistic Ameri
cans, and after all, the most satisfactory
scene of his activity.
Repartee
A lady once remarked in reference to an
author who shall be nameless, "He has so
much taste." "Yes indeed," the man to
whom she was talking replied, "and all so
bad."
At the close of the Franco-Prussian war
the French ambassador in London, after
complaining that England had not inter
vened, concluded pleasantly, "Yet, after
all, it is only wh<lt we might have expected;
we always believed you to be a nation of
shopkeepers, and now we ki»>w that you
are." "Quite so," replied a wit, adjusting
his monocle, "but, you see, we always be
lieved you to be a nation of soldiers, and
now we know you nre not."—Collier's
