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."

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

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

explain matters, but it was in vain, and

struck him another hard blow.

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.

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

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.—

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
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

A New Cure For Asthma Which Doesn't
Cost Anything.
Chief Clerk Georgo W. 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
“ '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
“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.
