the l.eginning which led to the double

the woman and visited her frequently.

Quite an astounding number of an

During the building of the To-wer

pudding was tied in a sack and sunk

PUT THE DEACON OUT.
He Railed Against the Church Fairs
and the Women Objected.
Deacon Isaac Southers, an Evange
list from Florida. has been holding re
vival meetings at Baltimore, Md. He
was ordered out of church by the wo
men of the congregation. The trouble
began when Southers denounced
church fairs, saying he would rather
see the church used for a liquor sa
loon. The ladies were about to hold a
fair, and they felt very much scandal
ized. One of the ladies arose in her
seat and publicly demanded a retrac

Criminals Should Be Exterminated.
At a meeting of the Chautaugua
Literary CIrcle held at Newburg, N.
Y., recently, Rtev. C. F. Wixon, an
elderly clergyman. declared it as his
belief that criminals should be exter
minated. Mr. Wixon said he would
have the state regulate the profits of
the trasts as it regulated the rate of
interest; the wor-kingmen's condition
lie would improve by promoting them
for merit; the criminal class, he said,
would eventually be exterminated.
"I believe," said Mr. Wixon, "that
when a man is twice convicted of
grave crIme he ought to be extermina
ted, because crime is hereditary. I
dont like the guillotine; it's too
bloody. I dont like hanging; it's too
violent. I don't like electrocution; It's
too uncertain and expensive. I-well
I'd chloroform them. I don't believe in
saddling the expense of maintaining
100,000 criminals on honest people."
One Way of Making a Living.
There are many and various ways of
making a living in this big city. say
the New York Times, an-I between
"chasing eighths" in Wall Streer. and
chasing potato-bugs in Jamaica, the
ways of gathering dollars are of wide
range. One of these seldom seen by
any except the people directly ir ter

at my head. When I compared n t. s
with the other seventy oil mon later,
I found that each one had t:'2 same
experience. There were only six re
volvers, and yet each in the room w:-s
willing to swear that one of thema was
pointed straIght at his hea. a'l til
tin.e. The crowd was simply paralyzud
with fright. For two or three socon 1s
not a man moved. Then over in one
corner a Leadville sport brought his
hand around to reach his hip poraht.
"'Stop that or I'll shoot,' said one
of the masked men. covering him with
hiN revolver. 'Hands up, now, quick!
We mean business.'
"Every man in that room did hold
his hands up. There was no hesitation
then. It was my first experience in that
kind of game, but it was not until I
was able to take my hands down that
I realized how tiresome the operation
was. There we stood, each man with
his hands stretched high above his
head, held up in a room on a busy
street when an outcry would bring
help at once. It was a pretty sure thing
however, that no one would make the
outcry. The three masked men had eyes
for every move, and their revolvers
pointed all ways at once. It Is easy for
a man who has not -been through such
an experience to suggest that if sev
eral men had only made a break these
fellows would have run. I can honestly
say that the barrel of the revolver into
which I looked seemed to me to be
a3 large as a sewer pipe. I even thought
that I could see the end of the bullet,
and I was awfully afraid that the man
who held the revolver might get ner
vous and shoot me by accident. I tried
to look pleasant to appease hIm. All
this had taken perhaps a m!nute and a
half when the spokesman shouted to
"'Line up against the wail with your
backs to me and the man w~ho takes
his hands down w~ill get shot. Quick.
nowv gentlemen. if you please. Obey or
ders and you won't get hurt.'
"We lined up as directed like a lot
of school boys.
"'Nowv then, rmy friend here will re
leve you of your valuables without
3 our assistances,' said the spokesman.
'Don't move, because there are two
dead shots behind you. Keep quiet and
it will soon be over.'
"'It was a very good piece of work.
I can assure you. One of the three
went right straight down the row, tak
ing each man's watch and money. He
didn't get as much as he expected and
as near as we could estimate later,
the total haul was under $3.000. There
was over $100,000 in the safe which the
r obbers overlooked. When we had beeni
entirely cleaned out, the spokesman
"'Now, gentlemen, we are sorry to
inconvenience you further, btut we shadl
have to request you to stand just as
ou are for five minutes more. Dent
cut the time short or you w~ill get hurt.'
"The side door opened at this instarnt
and we heard the order 'Idals up.
Chink, or you are a dead man.' It was
one of our Chinese servants who was
rcturning with a tray filled with drinks.
He promptly dropped his triy smashing
al the glasses and threw up his hand-.
We heard no other sound for. five min

to make sure that he shouldn't take
down his hands ahead of time. The

Water in Nevada to Which Men and

The death of Robert Watson, a cat

of "Death Spring" in the Rabbit Hole

The spring Is situated In Humboldt
County, Nevada. Its waters are so im

It. Rtunning from the spring is a tiny

In'rgine r*y anticipations when next
morning, I foutind him irstaled to ihe

him a.vay or slipping a card into his
hand, to warn him against the seat he
had chosen, but my official character
forbade me to interfetie. and. besides,
myrl a-iie would have been scorned.
for the fellow gtmbled like one mad.

and 2A.006 francs of his own money.
When his last 1,00 franc note was gone
he rose. and swanying to and fro like a

Two of moy men leid a merry chase
for this unfo:'tunate, and when they
caught up with him he jumped off the
rai Iwa y bridg'e, knocking out hisbrains.
S\not her case that haunts my
Idreams' One day an elderly gentleman,
Signor Antonio Cesare, who knew my
connection with the Casino compelled
me to give him the seat I was occupy
ing,. next to the croupier. I did so with
a bleeding heart, for this old man was
the very picture of health, and I was
an intimate friend of his cousin, the
Mayor of Eentimigli.
Well, this gentleman lost nearly a.
hundred thousand francs in the day
and evening. When he got up, his own
mother wouldn't have known him. He
looked ten years older; his flesh had
fallen away; madness stared out of his
eyes. NeX-t day they fished his body
ferom the lake at Mentone.
Then there were the Parlingtons, re
fned English people. They were on
their wedding trip. I never forgot the
look of delight with which young Mrs
Parington pocketed her first small
gain. The pretty bride fairly coaxed her
hushand to stake 10 francs.
When night came they had a couple
of thousandi francs in their pockets
Nex:t morning they took chairs Nos.
23 an-d '24. No. 2:1 brought them the usu
al luck-. They cgained 30,000 francs. But
n the following day came the inevita
be change. The 30.000 francs went back
to us, andI the couple's little fortune
followed. The:y walked from the room
deathly pale, hand in hand.
My detectives informed me that they
took the trt'in for Nice without troub
lig about their baggage. They shot
and i.-ifled themselves in the Windsor
Hote-l there. Everybody can see that
the 'Il t h en the suicide table is of more

Caino company is only 218 francs the

Htere are the figures: Cloth for double
1ablPi. 250 francs, painting of yellow fig
ures. i,0 francs; nailing down, 18 francs
total, :1 S francs.
A gainst these figures there is an off
set of 600) francs, which the Casin
comtipany would have been obliged to
pay the young Rtussian for traveling
