These proceedings the sending out of warning placards, the appointing of the St. Louis Exposititon Aid S ciety, etc., are chiefly directed against the St. Louis "vice trust," whose monstrous actions shocked the nation not long ago. Miss Fitzgerald, the matron at the Union station here, says that the action is a good one and greatly needed. If carried out well its results will do a great good and benefit many, probably savins those who would otherwise fall. The matrons at the station should be giv en more authority by the city offi cial!, says Miss Fitzgerald, in order that they might prevent, as they of ten have the opportunity, young girh from being annoyed by the advance of strange people. If this authority were granted the practice of annoy ing women by such advances woub" soon come to an end, in the statioi at least. Richmond women and girls will 1 surrounded with every safeguard pos sille. Forgot Ills Own Ton(?ne. A traveler in arctic Siberia. Mr. Vnn derlip, a gold hunter, told tbe follow ing of bis return to civilization: "I found that half a dozen of the oflieers and men of the steamer which my em ployers had sent for me had come to bunt me up. The captain dismounted, and I tried to address him in Russian, but be said, 'You forget that I speak English.' Now, it may seem scarcely credible, and yet it is true, that for a few moments I was totally unable to converse with him in my native tongue. I had not used a word of it in conver sation for months, and my low physic al condition acting on my nerves con fused my mind, and I spoke a jumble of English, Russian and Korak. It was a week before ! could tails good, straight English again." PROTECTION FOR DEFENDED (Continued From First Page.) St. Louis-, is in attendance upon Mr. Hiser, which is a consolation to Ben in St. Louis and the members of the family here. The following account is taken from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch : "I defended my wife, as any hus band should do, and I Was shot by a coward," says John Hiser, who is at the City Hospital, mortally wounded. In his occasional delirium he cries, "Leave her alone," and "Don't hurt her," and in spite of the wound Avhich is causing his life to ebb, he tries to getup and again defend his wife." Hiser was shot about 1 o'clock Monday .morning at twenty-first and Cass avenue. He and his wife lived at 2141 Cass avenue. Hiser is a gro cery' clerk. They were out caling on friends Sunday night and were re turning home, when at the corner mentioned they -were accosted by a maiij who addressed an insulting re mark to Mrs. Hiser. Hiser defended his wife and the man drew a revolver and shot him in the left breast, just over the heart. Hiser was taken to the city hospi- ftal. His wife accompanied him and stayed with him until 5:30 o'clock. During the forenoon the man was suffering intensely and no connected statement could be obtained from him. At 8 o'clock Monday morning a young man walked into the Fifth dis trict police station and asked that he be arrested. "I think I shot a man last night while I was drunk" he said. The sergeant recalled the shooting ! of Hiser. "Yes," said the young man, "I think I shot him. But I was drunk." He was locked up pending the veri fication of his confession. He gave the name of Jesse Lyman, 25 years old, of 2325 Warren street. 'John JI. Hiser was bora ten miles west of Richmond, in 1872, a son of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Hiser, of Hi ser 's station. He is a brother of Ben Hiser of the local postoffice and W. S. Hiser, director of manual training in the public schools. He lived in Rich mond during 1807 and 1898. He taught, penmanship in the Richmond Business; College and was also well and favorably known as treasurer of Grace church Sunday-school. Mr. Hi ser spent three years as corporal in the United Sttates cavalry from 1899 to 1902 and cruised around the world. He visited the Sandwich Islands, and the Philippines, and on his return trip touched Southern Asia. He was mustered out of service in March, 1902, at Platte ville, New York, and returned home. After a shox-t visit here with his parents he left for St. Louis where he has since been em ployed as a grocery clerk. POE AND FOVERTY. The Poet Wan Horn to Need and Left It un Ii Leenry. According to Charles Marshall Graves, writing in the Century, the poet Foe was two years old wiieu his mother, a gifted actress, was living It Richmond in the direst want. Mrs. Roe's last stage appearance was in the Richmond theater in October. 1811. Tbe theater burned on Dec. 25. and seventy-eight people perished with it. Roc's father had died in the spring, and Mrs. Roe and the baby poet and his younger sister went to live on Main street, in the Rird In Hand region, in a tenement cellar perpetually wet by tin? Shockoe creek, which then flow ed through the middle of the street. Here the wrtMclied woman contracted pneumonia and died. And from the cellar the future poet, described as a "baby skeleton," was rescued by Mr. Allan. Sixty years and more later Rosalie Roe, the poet's younger sister, appear ed on Richmond streets in poverty as bitter as her mother's had been to get a few coins by selling photographs of her brother. The man who was perhaps America's greatest poet and certainly one of the few poets who have vitally inlluenced the literary art both in prose and verse was born into the most wretched pov erty and left need as keen behind him.
