Yucatan, where the Mayas built their strange cities, is a coral limestouo formation, it would, says a writer In Records of the Past, have been a barren desert but for its sub terranean rivers and the cenotes, or water caverns, which give access to them. The Mayas noted the courses of the underground streams and built their towns round the cenotes. Many cenotes are now found surrounded by ruins and give indications of the meth ods employed by the 'Mayas to reach their cool waters. Iu Uxnial a cenote about forty feet ileop Is inhabited by a peculiar species of fish. At Bolan- chen there is a cenote having five open ings in the rocks at the bottom of the cavern. Ladders made by tying tree trunks together lead down a total dis tance of 1,400 feet, but the perpendic ular depth from the surface to the wa ter is not over 500 feet. ; The Mlxtnre In nnnmnnla. Roumania is inhabited by a bewilder ing variety of racs. but whether of Greek, Slav or Teutonic lineage, the modern Roumanian makes it a point of honor to claim descent from the colo uists whom Trajan planted in the con quered province of Dacia A. 1). 107 Calling themselves Romuni n.id their language Romunie. the proud citizens seldom draw out a local document Without some allusion to their founder, whom they style ilthe divine Trajan. The Roumanian language reflects the composition of the race and now but faintly suggests the language which Trajan spoke. Tennyson's CrnfTnewn. Apropos of Tennyson's gruffuess is a story repeated by the Loudon Chroni cle. Tennyson, in his last days gave audience to an American, a friend of Longfellow and Lowell, who came armed with credentials. "I hope you don't write," was the cautious old po ets first remark. "No, my lord, and don't talk!" was tha shrift reply. This response set Tennyson at his ease, and he at least "talked," to his guest's vast contentment. Fluttered Men. There is no exaggerated and bare faced compliment a man will not swal low greedily- if It be served by a wo man. He suspects it from the lips of another man. but is so innately con vinced that woman, his inferior, is al ways secretly worshiping him and long ing for him that he will bolt every sugared pill she oilers.

A hobo came . to Chief of Police Rimbach last evening and unfolded to that gentleman a game of graft which the hobo said flourished in the Erie yards. The hobo said that he and a number of pals were blind passengrs on a late Erie last night, but that they were stalled in the yards here. A watchman there said that if each one of the travelers paid him a quarter he could close his eyes tight enough not to see them get on the train. This the hobo re fused to do, and consequently he could not ride. CARD OF THANKS.

The salesman brought out a superb kit bag of cowhide, a rich brown bag, hand sewed, as big as a trunk. "This," he said, "is S40." "I d take it. ' said the patron, "only brown leather luggage gets so dirty and shabby after a few months' use. I have a leather steamer trunk I paid $75 for. and it is scratched and stained and discolored so 1 am ashamed of it." The salesman frowned. "Haven't you sense enough," he said, "to clean your brown leather luggage with a tan dressing, the same as you clean your brown leather shoes? As brown shoes, uncleaned, become un sightly, so brown bu rgage does, but this luggage, cleaned, whenever it is used is the most imposing and the most beautiful yon can have. . "Get a bottle of brown leather dress ing, apply it to your brown trunk acu rub with a woolen cloth for. five uiin utes. I'll guarantee that the trunk wiii then look better than new. It wiL have a richer, deeper color. "Suit ecsos. valises and all sorts of brown leather things should be rubbed up each time they are used. Then, in stead o shabby luggage, we would se? everywhere spick and span luggage o the richest brown." St. Lou's Giobfc-Democrat 3.

Stocks open-J ers and traders who are inclined to ed a shade easier this morning in j scalp the provision market whenever sympathy with lower prices from j any activity appears. London and a disposition to take profits by those who have been buy ers during the past week. There was liberal selling apparent in South ern Pacific, Smelters. St. Paul. Union Pacific, Reading, Copper and the Stel stocks. All of these issues lost most of the advance gained yester day and closed irregular with the tendency rather weak. There was a spasmodic rally early in the session, in such stocks as Reading and St. Paul, brought about by the bull crowd who were trying to make a market to" sell upon, but the rally was soon dissipated. The one strong feature of the day was the buying of Canadian Pacific. This issue is a great favorite among houses with for eign connections and the buying by these people was on a large scale. The only reason advanced for the strength is the possibility of an in crease in the dividend rate at the next meeting. The money situation is easier, call loans being made today as low as 2 per cent, but a great many traders are talking of money stringency when the crops begin to move more freely.

The news in a general way was favorable to the buli element. Cash acceptances were re ported large, weather conditions in the northwest favorable, lack of the black rust stories with any degree truth, firmer foreign markets and considerable wheat worked for ex port from Boston were the principal buli factors. The market r-insnri strong and at about the best price: of the session. Corn strong and higher, the martct has had a natural reaction in the las week and the short interest not very large. Traders inclined to play the bull side for a turn. Some claims of damage to corn crop in southern Illinois, account of lack of moisture and weather too warm., Market clos- ed firm with a tendency fcr higher prices. Oats scored a good, advance, claims of poor crop returns in some sec tions of llinois, but principal cause of the advance was large buying by commission houses who believe oatsl have had reaction enough for the present. Provisions firm and a trifle higher On the advance there was a little FARMER ID WITH HEW Continued from page 1. up and could not get to food. It is reported here that the udders of two of the cows were burst open when help came last night. With the assistance of liehremlt's wife, the neighbors managed to calm the farmer and after he was given proper medical attention, the farm hands turned to the stock. Behrendt has not gone insane, and in a few days it is thought that he will be able to take up his regular work. But for the intense heat of Sunday which followed the afternoon of the farmer's prostration, it is likely that he would have recovered sooner, and the injury to the stock of the place would have been slight. Farmers in the neighborhood say that l'eh rendt is an exceptionally kind man and highly respected, and much sym pathy is expressed at his temporary calamity. DID MAN COMMIT SUICIDE ? NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW. Man Seen Approaching River Near Hohman Street Bridge Gives Rise to Suicide Rumor. Did a man commit suicide at noon today by jumping into the Calumet river at Hohman street? This is the question that is uppermost in the minds of a number of Hammond people. The rumor that a man had either jumped or fell into the river and been drowned at that point was heard on the streets about 2 o'clock this afternoon. Upon investigation no definite in formation could be gathered and the longer the rumor was abroad and the faster it traveled the more seri ous it became. The first story was to the effect that a man was seen to run and throw himself into the river. Another was to the effect that the man had fatally stabbed a fellow workman while eating dinner in a saloon near the river and fearing the result of the deed, had committed suicide in the aforesaid manner. Still a third rumor, with many of the details included, was that the suicide had become despondent over losing his position at the Reid Mur dock factory and that, when he had been told at noon today that his ser vices were no -longer required, he left the factory without even stop ping for his coat or hat, rushed to the Indiana Harbor railroad bridge near the factory and threw himself into the filthy water at that point. J. W. Addy, a watchmban in the employ of the Simplex Railway Ap pliance Co., was seen at his shanty which is as near the river as any workman in the neighborhood get, and he seemed the only man who had seen anything that resembled a man about to commit self destruction by- drowning. Andy says tnat It was just about noon in fact the noon whistle was blowing at the time when he saw a strange man walking across the company's property just south of the tracks of the Elgin Joliet & Eastern railroad, going in the direction of the river and toward the Hohman street bridge. "I knew the man could not get to the bridge by going in that direction," said i Ancty, in temng oi uie peculiar ! wunns m lDe ranger, ana l spoke - !fellow is over that way for For some reason I did not watch the man and the last I saw of him he was near the shore of the river. did not see him return but have not thought of him until just now. of ; The watchman said the man came i frurn tIle direction of the Reid Mur - ; dwk works, down the track and he believes, though he is not certain of it that the man was coatless. He gai thft he was tall but could giv no detailed description of him. MRS.
