were tied together with a handkerchief.
This was removed. When the girl ar
rived at herhomeshe told a disconnect
ed and vague story of having been kid
napped Wednesday night by a strange
man. The police showed some hesi
tancy in accepting the story until she
should have recovered from the ef
fects of her experience sufficiently to
be more closely questioned. Dr. Har
ry LI. Gabe, 11 Virginia avenue, who
has been tue Van Sickle family physi

lice. After hearing his story, however,
and on his promise not to run away,
the police refused to detain him or to
file a charge against him.
According to a number of workmen
m the lactory, Slinker, on seeing the
boy. began abusing him and villifying
the character of the lnds mother, who
is a sister of Mrs. Slinker. The boy
warned the old man not to repeat the
statement. The latter did so, and, ac
cording to the witnesses, he then
seized and choked Armsten. When the
latter finally escaped from his clutches
Slinker secured a big stoue and threat
ened to kill the boy. whereupon the

Saratoga Favored for Next Year.
After the elections the place of
holding the next encampment was tak
en up, and the Now York delegation
presented Saratoga. An adjournment
was taken before a vote was reached,
and other cities that desire the en
campment will have an opportunity to
present their claims today. The senti
ment is strong, however, in favor of
Saratoga. It is expecred that the de
bate on the Wirz proposition will also
come up today. The present probabili
ty is that some animated discussion
will follow the introduction of any
resolution on the matter.
New Chief Enlisted As a Roy.
The new commander-in-chief of the
Grand Army, It. B. Brown, was born
in 1845 and has always lived in Ohio.
He enlisted in the Fifteenth Ohio in
fantry at the age of H years, and
served in the Fourteenth army corps
in the Army of the Cumberland until
he was mustered out in IStVL- He then
re-enlisted as a veteran soldier, and
served as such until the end of the
war. He was a private throughout
the first three years of his service,
and then became a non-commissioned
officer. He has always been active and
prominent in the work of the Grand
Army. Brown is now editor of the
HOME, CANTEEN AND WIKZ
Two Most Important Questions That
Are To Be Considered.
The business sessions of the Grand
Army opened with 1,500 delegates
present. The most Important questions
are the abolition of the canteen from
the old soldiers' homes and the pn
posed erection of a monument to Hen
ry Wirz by the women of the south
On the (luestion of the canteen the
delegates are apparently about evenly
divided, according to the officers. On
the question of a monument to Wirz
there is on all sides almost a bitter
feeling of opposition.
The report of Commander-in-Chief
Tanner covered all features of the
work during the last year. Na men
tion was made of the canteen question,
but recommendation was made that
the Grand Armv enter a disnified and
emphatic protest against the erection
of the Wirz monument. Commander
Tanner declared the G. A. It. has at
tained "a position of commanding in
fluence, which has been beneficial not
only to our own comrades, but to the
n-ttion which we served th its hour
of peril." The commander bitterly ar
raigned those who.posing as the "most
eminent men of the nation," had
proved false .to their trust in variom
ways, but declared that among all
such the name of no civil war veteran
could be found.
The total membership is declared in
the report of Adjutant Genera! Twee

by death reached exactly the same per

capita tax are declared insufficient
The suggestion is made that the tax
be increased from 0V2 cents to 5 cents
It is estimated by the police tha
the number of prostrations during the
time of the parade was more than 100.
The great majority of these were wo

Just a Dream.
I dreamed one night that black was white.
That fishes grew on trees.
That fast was slow, that high was low,
That elbow joints were knees;
dreamed that steak was coffee cake,
That noodlf-s were ice cream,
That lean was fat, that this was that
Say. wasn't that a dream?
dreamed that eggs had wooden legs,
That sauerkraut was sweet.
That whistles rang and maidens sang
A ditty with their feet,
That trees could walk and spoons could
And no one lost their bets, N
That paina and aches and rattlesnakes
Were really household pets.
I dreamed that mice gave good advice
To all who came to buy
And that the bill was less than nil
And likewise twice as high.
That womankind was quite resigned
To one cheap dress a year ':
And that the moon came up at noon
And wigwagged with Its ear.
I hold tht dream in high esteem.
Still be it understood
I only dreamed I dreamed that dream.
But that Is quite as good.
For It's the klnd l have in mind
Stored underneath my hat
Should ever I feel called upon
To dream a dream like that.
