Mr. Cross and two witnesses came to police headquarters late yesterday after noon and identified the negro Sims, who was arrested by the police, as the man who shot and slightly wounded Mr. Cross Saturday afternoon near Green "Springs. Chief of Police T. C. McDonald does not devote his time exclusively to desk and pen. For the past few days he has per sonally figured in the capture of every Important criminal taken by his force. Officer Johnston is always pleasant and agreeable, but woe to the fleet fugitive or refractory prisoner who presumes too far on his good nature.

Yesterday, it Is said, he got full of "booz," and being In, a mean frame of mind, he committed an act of rude van dalism by firing a revolver at the funeral services of a negro deceased In the vicin ity of Avenue G and Fourteenth street. The negroes who had gathered to pay respects to the memory of the departed, it Is reported, were infuriated at the vio lent and outrageous act of the disturber and would have given1 him rough punish ment had It not been for the timely ar rival of Officer Walker, who took charge of t.he prisoner and warned off the clam orous darkies on peril of serious conse quences. Welch was escorted to the prison and will come before Judge Fea gin tills morning, who will, if the evi dence sustains in effect the above ac count, handle the offender without gloves.

Soldiers Who Never Changed Their Posi tion* After Being Shot. Private McGorklo of the Fifteenth Ken tucky hail just told of the soldier who was shot at the battlo of Perryvllle, while in the act of climbing a fence, and whose death had boon so sudden and instantane ous that he never changed his position after tlie missile penetrated Ills brain and was found some time afterward with one foot upon the second rail of the fenoo and his hands clutching the top one with a death grip, when Captain Boone, one of Wolford's wild riders, spoke up. “One of tho most rcmarkablo instances of this sort,” sold lie, “was at tho fight of Dutton’s Hill, in Pulaski county. This, you know, was one of the Iiottost little fights of tho war. I was cutting through a small clump of trees when my attention was at tracted by three soldiers upon the ground, side by side, behind an immense log, with their guns resting upon tho log, and all of them apparently ubout in tho act of firing in the direction of tlie enemy. “ 'Be careful, boys,’ I remarked to thorn. ‘Take aim and sock it to ’em.’ “1 observed that they paid no attention whatover to me, neither did they fire, and upon olosor inspection I found that they were all still ns pokers and as dead as hammers. A single Imllot had killed all tlireo of them, and killed them instantly, penetrating tho brain of each man. It must have struck them just as they hud prepared to fire.’’ “I saw something in that lino myself once,’’ said Private Tribble, who had par ticipated in the “valley campaign,” “al though the man was not shot. It was during the very cold weather of 1868 whou a sudden change came and sent the mer cury Hying toward zoro. About midnight on Jan. It! I knew a sentinel to be frozen to death, and death overtook him in suoh a manner that he was left standing erect and still, frozen to tlie ground, with his gun in true military position anil appar ently ready for business at any minute." —Louisville Post. He'll Never Do So Any More. A man who lives ueur State street tried to play a practical joke recently. Now lie wishes that he hadn’t. Ho lmd always been intho habit of lock ini' all the doors and windows every night anti was somewhat annoyed when his wife engaged a new girl from the country to llnd that she was very negllgont in fasten ing up the windows and doors at night. On two or three occasions he had gone down stairs in the night and found a win dow up or the back door unfastened. He hud cautioned her, but it did no good, so lie determined to frighten her. Ho bought some false whiskers, and one night about 11 o’clock he crept down stairs to tho kitchen, where the domestic had turned down tho gas und was In her chair fast asleep. She was breathing heavily, but tho moment the make believe intruder struck u match she awoke. He expected a great yelling and scream ing, hut nothing of the sort took place; She bounced out of her ohalr, shouting, “You villain I" and seizing a chair by tho back hit the poor joker over tho head with It, forcing him to his knees. He tried to explain matters, but it was in vain, and before ho could get out of the room she struck him another hard blow. When it was all ovor, she wont up to the man’s room, knocked on the door und coolly announced: “Mr.-, please get up. I’ve killed a burglar.” It will bo a long time boforo that man plays burglar again.—Bangor News. Story of a Bankbook. It has required a search of 24 years to locate the heirs of John W. Davis, a de positor of the Hibernia bank, who com mitted suicide at the Philadelphia House, in San Francisco, In 1871. Although Da vis left $1,400 in the bunk, no one ever olaimed it, and more thun 22 years passud before the fact that ha had an estato was reported to the public administrator. The story of the dead man’s bankbook is an odd one, particularly since his heirs have now been looated. Davis had left the book with Sinobck & Trembath, then pro prietors of tho old Wisconsin House, but in 1879 they sold out to Honry Evans, after ward supervisor, Davis’ bankbook com ing to him among other odds and ends. Mr. Evans has taken the book to tho bunk every year to have it “marked up." Judge Levy last year appointed an attorney to represent the unknown heirs. It was for a long time supposod that Davis’ heirs were in Wales, but Attoruoy Osoar T. Shuck has just located the heirs In New York. Duvis was a soldier in the Fourteenth infantry, being a sergeant in Company G, and was honorably discharged at the end of his torin on Aug. 4, 1868, at Camp Lin coln, Arizona. His old regiment is now stationed at Vancouver. Before taking his life In San Francisco Davis gambled away $500 of his money. He left a letter saying he was tirod of life, asked God to forgive him for going to a suioldo’s gruve and stating that ho had $1,000 left In bank at Portland, Or., which ho donated to the Orphans’ home of that city. There was no Orphans’ home In Portland, and no bank account of Davis Is discoverable there. The soldier suicide was burled In the city cemetery at the public expense.— New York Telegram. Oil, No; We're Not Superstitious. A man carrying a heavy satchel chased a crosstown car half a block the other day, and by reason of a slow going truck on the track In front of it was enabled to over take It. As he was about to get aboard, his glance rested on the sido of the car for a moment. With an expression of ularm on his face he turned around and trotted back to the sido walk. “There's another,” remarked the con ductor. “What's the matter with him; wrong car?" asked a passenger. “No; guess not. He probably saw the number,” replied the conductor, pointing to an ominous 18 painted on tho wood work. “You wouldn't believe there were •o many superstitious people in New York until you’ve been a thlrteenor for awhile.

He Knocked Steve O'Donnell Down Three Times and Put Him to Sleep in One Minute and Three Seconds. Maapeth, L. I., Nov. 11.—The meeting of Peter Maher and State O’Donnell in the arena of the Empire Athletic club at Mospeth tonight created an immense amount of interest among the sporting fraternity. Maher was the favorite in the betting, h.is manager, J. J. Quinn, laying odds of 5 to 2 whenever he could find takers. O'Donnell was not without friends, and a good deal of money changed hands. They were announced to light twenty-five rounds at catch weights. O’Donnell's seconds .were Billy Delaney, Jim McCabe and Ben Murphy. Maher was looked after by Peter Low re y, Buck Cornelius of Pittsburg and Pete Burns. Corbett responded to calls for “Cor bett" and stepped into the ring and said: "All I've got to say, gentlemen, is that if I'd been in England or Australia and had acted as Fitz did I’d have been chased out of the country.” O'Donnell was the first to appear at 9:35 o’clock. He was well received, but Maher,' who stepped into the ring a mo ment later, got a great ovation. First round—Maher led with his right and landed on the Jaw, knocking O'Don nell down. The moment the Australian got up Maher repeated and again O’Don nell went down. He rose on the ninth count, and after sparring for a second Maher knocked him down and out with a left swing on the jaw. Time, one minute and three seconds. O'Donnell had to be carried to his cor ner, but recovered and was assisted to his dressing room. The crowd went wild and poured into the ring amid a scene of the wildest enthusiasm. O'Donnell did not seem to realize what he was up against, and did not make the slightest effort to defend himself. He got up only to be felled like a sheep. Corbett, who had a chair near the ring, got up and looked at O’Donnell with a smile on his face. He jumped into the ring and shook Maher's hand cordially, being one of the first to congratulate the Irishman. The Strike Declared Off. Rt.

Moore of the Southern hotel trontcd the other clerks to a genuine surprise yesterday by returning to his post. Tho last time they hoard from him ho was suffering with an unusunlly severe attnek of asthma. Tho rapidity of Mr. Moore’s recovery was the occasion of comment and congratulation. “What new cure have you discovoredf” asked another asthmatic. Asthmatics are always on the lookout for “cures,” though the name of infallible remedies is already legion. To the questioner’s surprise, for all asthmatics have at least one virtue, eymputhy, Mr. Moore smiled and turnod away to Ills work. For this conduct, so ut variance with the traditions and habits of the asthmatic fraternity, Mr. Moore was sharply called to task. “ Sou wouldn’t believe mo if I told you; It’s so simple yon would think it absurd," ho said, excusing himself. “No, I won't tell you. Sou would think I'd (jone daft." The cat was let out of the bag a half hour later In a very natural fashion. Mr. Moore was telling his friends how well he felt, when iio suddenly stopped, began breath ing hard and lookod like ho had lost his last friend. “Poor fellow, he's como out too soon,” was what everybody present said to him self. Mr. Moore evidently thought so too. Suddenly a faint “mew” was heard in Manager Lewis’ private offioe. The effect was electrical. Mr. Moore’s face bright ened like an April day. Without a mo ment's delay he shut the door, Imprison ing the feline musician, and called a bell boy to remove it. “Arc there any other cats in the house?” he asked nuxiously. “Yes, the housekeeper has one.” “Well, toll her to take It away. Either I or it will have to leave this hotel.” “Perhaps I will be believed now,” he said, turning to a Republio reporter, “when I tell you about my 'cure.' “I was in hopes I would be able to re turn to work last Monduy, when the sud den change in the weather brought on my trouble worse thun over. I never had asth ma so bad in my life before. It took two or three physicians to pull me around. Wednesday I was inhaling something rec ommended for my complaint when I no ticed a lady pause on the sidewalk and sniff the air. Then sho ran up the steps and rang the hell. My wife went to tho door. “ 'Excuse my intrusion,' the lady said, ‘but I thought I smelled some kind of an asthma cure. I am un asthmatic myself, and I sympathize so much with others suf fering with asthma that I thought I would come in and see if I could not bo of some assistance.' “My wifo invited the lady into tho par lor and told lior of my condition. “ ‘I think I can offer a suggestion that will afford him instant relief if it is fol lowed. Don’t think me foolish now, for it is such a simple thing you may he inclined to laugh.' “ ‘Have you got a cat? No, no, do not call it. Well, you send the cat away for good, and your husband will not huvo half so much trouble.’ “The lady then oontinued to say slio had proved tho formula to her own satis faction by actual experiment. Sho said the animal's fur or skin exhaled an odor or dust that aggravated if it did not cause au attack of asthma. "I immediately sent our flro Maltoso houso pet to tho country for a change of air. I began to mend Immediately and recover faster in three days than I over did before in two weeks. No, tho cat will not return. ”—St. Louis Republio.
