Col. Roosevelt's Assassin, His
Surgeon and Stenographer »«♦♦« ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦•• •— JOHN SCHRÄNK, the assassin of Theodore Koosevelt. is a short stubby man with a calm face, inoffensive, shrinking manner. Who at times in connection with mat ters over which he brooded deeply be trayed traces of insanity, which affect ed his father and his grandfather, John Schrank 1st, a brewer of Erding, Bava ria. He is thirty-six years old. Schrank is a morbid man and not a Socialist He had no intimates except bis relatives. He was educated in the public schools and speaks English as well as German. He came to this coun try to live in New York with his uncle and auut after the death of his father and mother, the father having died the death of a maniac. Several times in his life Schrank has shown indications which mark him as one mentally affected. He was violent at his aunt's funeral in Brooklyn. For -3 ; «j 3 0 1912, by American Press Association. JOHN SCHRANK. days he returned to the grave, weeping and mourning, covering the spot with flowers. The force of Scbrank's irrational mind began to direct itself against Colonel Roosevelt some time ago. It is plain that for several months he had been resolving plans for slaying Koosevelt. He followed the colonel to many cities, but failed to set an opportunity to (ice bis bullet until Milwaukee was reached. In a confession of his crime Schrank said lie had looked upon Roosevelt's plan to start a third party as a danger to the country and finally decided that it was bis duty to kill the former presi dent. He told of a dream in which u n 1 VS ft $ ! Photo by American Press Association.

Elbert E. Martin, Roosevelt's ste nographer, is credited with having pre vented Schrank from firing a second shot. Martin is twenty-nine years old and a native of Manchester, Vt. He got a position at the New York Pro gressive headquarters in August and soon afterward became Mr. Roosevelt's personal stenographer. lie Is not only an expert stenographer, but a lawyer. Martin had one foot on the sidewalk and the other on the running board of Roosevelt's automobile when Schrank flred. Martin went clear across the Intervening space in one leap, caught the assassin, threw his right arm around the man's neck and bore him to the pavement. Schrank's iieck was in danger of being broken by Martin's half nelson hold when Colonel Roose velt called out. "Don't hurt him; bring him to me." Martin dragged the fellow along, banded the revolver to the colonel and tben twisted the man's face arouud so that the colonel could see him. By this time the police had got up, and Martin turned the assassin over to them. After having received first aid treat ment at Milwaukee Colonel Roosevelt m y - • Fhoto by American Press Association.

Murphy, one of the most prominent surgeons in the world. It was l)r.

A Dew form of Inner tube which has recently been placed on the market is Well worthy of consideration as seem ingly representing an important step In the right direction. This tube contains uo tiller, no "dope' of uu.t kind, but is a regular pneumatic rube intlaied with air In the usual way. which, owing to some pe culiar and iimciilons features in its coiiMnicUon. I* m a large mens ure seit m 'ji. iii - hihi will Hold the air for a io:i„' :iiitc. .1 is claimed, even after iv« «•> i '.' a ven severe puncture. Tile priii. ii ic on winch the construc tion o!

I lie innei Iniw is made rattier heavy at the tread tin.: has Iiulittlded In it a strip ot canvas seen in section in rig. I. which represents the ap pearance of the tube when first made. We now come to (tie important feature of the new tube. After a length ot tubing has been made as usual and with the structure shown in Fig. 1 the tube Is now turned inside out. An inspection of Fig. 1 will show that the canvas strip, forming as it does an arc of the inner circumference of the tube r ig. & Fig. 2. Fig. L wimrrme ciosep Fig. 4. SELF HEALING AUTO TIRE. as first made, is necessarily shorter than the corresponding arc of the outer circumference of the tube. The conse quence of this is that when the tube is turned inside out the canvas strip is under tensiou, and. being inelastic and therefore unable to give way to this tension, it holds the deflated tire in a flat position, as shown in Fig. 2. On inflation the tire is, of course, forced to assume a circular form, aud the canvas strip, being now situated on the external circumference and being, as already pointed out, iuextensible, com presses the rubber underneath it. so that the tread portion of the inner tube is always under compression and therefore self sealing. In point of fact, a puncture made with a sharp nail or point seals itself automatically, so that it cannot be detected by the usual immersion in water. The diagram of Fig. 4 is intended to show roughly the way in which the rubber behaves when a puncture is made. The nail on the left is shown in its entering position, when it drags the Ober of the rubber with it and raises a tuft of rubber on the inside of the tube. The nail on the right is being withdrawn, and the fiber of the rubber is following in its motion. On the extreme right is seen a puncture sealed by the rubber after the uail has been extracted. Dictograph's Wide Range. K. M. Turner, inventor of the dicto graph, which he says has been mis spelled dictagraph, gave a demonstra tion of the various ways in which the device could be practically utilized in New York recently. "The dictograph," explained the in ventor, "has been known as a detective device. This is the first public demon stration of its everyday commercial importance. With our commercial de vice a business man simply lifts a lever and talks to one, two, fifteen or a bun dred people, as he chooses, at one time Each party to the conversation is seat ed in his own office, which may be in the saine building or several blocks away. Nobody is obliged to hold transmitter or receiver. They talk back and forth as though seated in the same room. The detective value of the de vice consists of the fact that the trans mitter weighs only six ounces and cau be concealed easily. It can be installed in four minutes by an expert and can be wired so as to transmit spoken words for more than a mile." A Great Fuel Consumer. More fuel is consumed in the city of Pittsburgh and its immediate vicinity and more coal is shipped to and through the Pittsburgh district than in any other district In the world, ac cording to Edward W. Parker of the United States geological survey. With a population of about one-ninth of that of Greater New York the consumption of coal alone In Pittsburgh Is nearly equal to that of the much larger city Greater New York consumed In 1911 approximately 19,000,000 short tons, and Pittsburgh used about 10,500,000 short tons. But Pittsburgh consumes several million tons of coke and con slderable quantities of natural gas which, added to the coal consumption gives that city a good lead over New York as a fuel consumer. Economical Reflectors. Reflectors that may be attached to any electric light, called asymmetrlca reflectors, may now be obtained Their purpose is to throw the bulk of the light from the lamp in one direc tion. They are especially useful In illuminating long halls, for throwing light into closets, in the bathroom for shaving or wherever more light Is needed In a certain spot. Where such reflectors are employed a smaller lamp may be used, thus cutting down the cost of current. OFFICIAL DIRECTORY. Federal. mm alors Joe. M. Dixon Henry L.
