SELECT. ~ The Career of a Noted Outlaw, A dispatch from St. Joseph, Mo, dated April 3rd, said that a great ex citement was created in that city that morning, by the announcement that Jesse James had been assassinated in a house in that city, by one of his own gang, who had joined the detective force, and who killed James to get the large rewards offered for him, dead or alive, by the Governor of the State and by the railroad and express com panies. A look at tbe body while it was be ing photographed at the undertaker's showed that Jumes was a fine-looking man, apparently forty years old, with broad forehead, and bis physiognomy was that of an intelligent as well as a resolute and daring man. The bouse where James lived, and in which he was killed, has tbe ap pearance of an arinorv. A number of guns and pistols, including a repeating rifle, a needle gun, and navy revolvers, with a good store of ammunition, were found there. Jesse was in the habit of wearing two belts, with a brace of very fine revolvers and twenty-five ex tra cartridges. In a small stable near the bouse were discovered several fine horses, the property of James. Jesse James is tbe elder of the two James boys. Frank, the younger, is understood to be living in Texas under an assumed name. lift is married and has abandoned his old ways of life. They were the sons of a Baptist clergy man of Kentucky, and were educated at Georgetown College, Scott county, Ky. Jesse was born in 1845, and Frank in 1841. In 1840 the Itev. Mr. James removed to Clay county, Mo., where he purchased a farm and per formed ministerial duties for a small Baptist congregation. In 1840 he went to California and died there. In 1857 bis widow married Dr Ueuben Samuels, a physician of Clay county, Missouri. When tbe war opened Jesse and Fra*ik endeavored to enlist in the Con federate army, but wore rejected as being too young for the service. It is stated that Dr. Samuels was or-.ce ter ribly beaten by a party of Union men who came to the bouse, and that it was a desire for vengeance that started the boys on their career as desperadoes. At auy rate they joined (Juantrell's guerillas, and took part in the murder ous work of the gang. Jesse James has made a brag of tbe number of peo ple ee killed at the sacking of the town of Lawrence. In 1805 Quaotrell was killed in a fight with a body of Federal troops, und the gang was broken up, tbe James boys returning to their homes in Clay county, Mo., where they lived quietly. In 18(18, with the Vounger brothers and George Sheppard, who bad been with them in Quantrell's band, tbe James boys went to the races at Lex ington, Ky. On their way home they visited Ilussellville, in that State, rob bed the bank of $14,000, and fled to Texas. In December, 18('»1), they resumed criminal operations, and robbed tins bank at Gallatin, Mo., in connection with the Younger brothers ami others of their old associates in guerilla war fare. Here they murdered several per sons, and again went to Texas. In May, 1870, the two brothers bad a fight with some Texans at a dance house, which resulted in several mur ders, the victims being men of their own profession, and tbe result was that they were compelled to fly for their lives. They returned to their old home in Missouri, and again resumed agricultural pursuits. In thi' spring of 1870, together with the Younger brothers, they made a rade into lowa ; entering the town of Corydon, where, in broad daylight, they dasiied up to the bank on tbeir horses, seven in number, dismounted, entered with drawn revolvers and find ing the cashier alone, demanded all the money he had. The safe was open, and the cashier was totally powerless. After emptying several thousand dol lars into a sack, they quietly remount ed their horses and rode away. They were followed for a hundred miles or more by a posse of eiti/.ens, but disap peared, and were not seen again for several months. In the latter part of the same year (1870) the two James brothers and the four Vounger brothers again attended the races at Kentucky, and there con ceived the plan of robbing a bank at Columbus. In the afternoon, after spending the day around the tavern in that town, the six men mounted tbeir horses, rode over to the bank, which was only a few rods distant, leisurely dismounted and entered the building, where they found the cashier, the WEDNESDAY. APRIL 12,1882 President and a citizen engaged in con versation. Without losing any time, three of them levelled their revolvers upon the occupants of the room, while I the other three unceremoniously com menced to open the safe. They gath ered together all the money in sight, and, after shooting the cashier, who made an outcry, they mounted their horses and rede away. An alarm was immediately given, and they were pur sued by the .Sheriff and a large posse of men, but they reached the Cumberland Mountain in safety, and there disap peared. On the 2<lth of September, 1872, they committed one of the most daring and amazing exploits in the history of crime. They attended the Missouri State Fair at Kansas city, where it is said 30,000 people were gathered, and, of course, the receipts at the gate were correspondingly large. They remain ed through the day ; took dinner on the fair grounds, attended the races, and about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, while the attention of the crowd was drawn to a famous contest between Ethan Allen and another noted horse, they rode up to the office of the fair as sociation, where they found Mr. Hall, the treasurer of the fair, counting up the receipts of the day, which amount ed to nearly SIO,OOO. Mr. Hall sat in the office with a young man. The gang put revolvers to their heads, pocketed the money, and made their escape. In the spring of 1873 they raided a bank at St. Genejieve, Mo. During the flight, the outlaw who had the bag of money in charge dropped it, and the pursuit was so hot that they had to abandon the booty. It was while they were smarting tinder this disappoint ment that their first train robbery was planned, which took place on the Kock Island road in June of the same year. About seventy-five miles east of Coun cil Bluff's they took up a rail in a sharp curve. An express train was thrown off the track. The engineer and fire man were killed and a number of pas sengers badly wounded. The gang robbed the express car, carrying away gold bricks, specie, and notes to a very large amount. A large reward was of fered for their apprehension, but they found safe refuge in Indian Territory. After this affair they committed a number of stage robberies, one of them on the route to Hot Springs, Ark. In January, 1874, the gang made its ap pearance at (iads Ilill, a flag station on the Iron Mountain road in Wayne county, Mo. They flagged the. train, robbed the express car of SII,OOO, and plundered a number of the passengers. The railroatl and express companies now determined to hunt the gang down at any expense. Pinkerton's agency took the case, and a corps of detectives were sent]to*Missouri under the command of Louis L. Lull, for merly a Lieutenant on the police force of Chicago. One of his detectives by the name of Weicher went to the ren dezvous of the desperadoes in the garb of a german immigrant and applied for labor. On the morning after ho was found dead, with several bullet holes in his body, tied to a tree near the road, a few miles from Mrs. Samuels' house, and also upon his person was found a card, saying : This shall be the fate of all of Pinkerton's detectives who come into Missouri. Soon after this Lull bail a desperate fight in the Monigan wood, in south western Missouri, with the Younger brothers, in which Joha Vounger, the acknowledged leader of the band, was killed, and James Vounger his brother, was seriously wounded. Dan iels, the Sheriff of St. Clair County, was also instantly killed, and Lull was mortally wounded, dying a few days afterward. The pursuit was so hot that tht! James and Vounger boys sought refuge in Texas. In January, 1875, Mr. Pinkerton learned that Jesse and Frank James had returned to tbeir mother's resi dence, and an attempt was made to capture them A large body of men, well armed, proceded to the residence of Mrs. Samuels about midnight. The house was surrounded, and a hand grenade was thrown into one of tbe rooms. A little son of Mrs. Samuels was killed by tbe explosion, and she had one of her hands torn off. Neith er of the outlaws was at home. They believed that a man named Daniel Os key, living at Liberty, Mo., was con cerned in the visit, so they rode over to his house, called him to the door, and shot him. In the spring of 1875 the gang per petrated another train robbery, this time on the Kansas Pacific road, at a small station near Kansas City. The passengers were not troubled, but mon ey and gold dust to tbe amount of $25,000 was taken from tbe express car. The trail of the robbers was fol owed to Indian territory, where they again eluded capture. Following this came the robbery of a bank at Hunt ington. W. Va. Then came another train robbery. On July 7, 187' i, the I gang stopped a train in the Missouri Paciflic road, in a rocky cut in Pettis County, Mo. Jesse James and Cole Younger entered the express car, and compelled the messenger to open the safe, which contained $15,000. As usual, tlm robbers escaped capture. The country was one that they were familiar with, and which abounds in hiding places. The vallev of Grand ; liivcr is a region thickly covered with ' timber ami underbrush, annd full of swamps and bayous, furnishing the I outlaws with a safe retreat so long as their depredations were carried on in this region. When they left it to go into an unfamiliar country for their next great enterprise they met with a reverse. They planned a raid on a bank in | North field, Minn. On Sept. 7, IB7<i, [ they rode up in their usual style ami took possession of the bank, Jesse James killed Casber Haywood in cold blood for refusing to open the vault. It happened to be in the midst of tht! j prario chicken season, and everybody who came to town was armed with a shotgun or rifle. The outlaws bad | considerable difficulty in getting out of town, and for the first time they met with something like an organized re !si stance. Clel Miller and Hill Chad- I well were left dead in the street, and ! several others were hurt. They were pursued into a swamp, where Stiles i was killed and Jesse James and all three of tbe Voungers were wounded. I Frank and Jesse James made their es- I cape into Dakota, but the Voungers were captured. Jesse was seriously hurt, but he managed to pull through, and eventually the brothers made their way back to Missouri. The Voungers pleaded guilty, and are now serving life sentences. They profess to hare embraced religion. Nothing was heard of the James boys for a lon# time after this affair, and it was reported thut they were dead. On Oct. 7, 1879, a train was robbed on the Chicago and Alton road, twenty-two miles east of Kansas City, by the James boys and four others, and it is claimed that they got $35,000 from the express car. George Sheppard, who bad been one of (Juan trell's lieutenants, aud who had been associated with the James boys in some of their operations, but who had reformed, was now engaged at a large salary to act as a detective. He join ed the ffang, and informed the detect ives of their plan to rob a bauk at Em pire City, Jersy County, Mo., aud of their place of meeting. A descent was arranged but the outlaws got news of it, and got away in time. Sbeppard's treachery was suspected, and he would have been killed I ad he not been quick enough on the trigger to shoot Jesse James, and then to escape through swiftness of his horse. Ho reported that he had killed James, but the lat ter was only wounded. On July 15, 1881, a train on the Rock Island and Pacific road was rob bed by a gang led by Jesse James. Frank James is believed to have retir ed from the gang, and settled down in Texas before Ihe robbery, which is the last notable criminal exploit with which Jesse James' name was con nected. A MISSISSIPPI PILOT'S STORY. Some Fads 4limit AlllgaforH as They Were In the (»»»<! Old IfiijM. The passenger, who was going down the big river for the first time in his life, secured permission to climb up besides the pilot, a grim old gray back, who never told a lie in his life. 'Many alligators in the river?' in quired the stranger, after a look around. 'Not so many now, since they got to shootin' 'em for their bides and taller.' was the reply. 'Used to be lots, eh ?' 'I don't want to tell you about 'em, stranger,' replied the pilot, sighing heavily. •Why?' 'Cause you'd thing I was a-lyin' to you, and that's sometbin' I never do. I can cheat at keerds, drink whisky, or chaw poor terbacker, but I can't lie.' 'Then there used "to be lots of 'em V inquired the passenger. 'l'm most afraid to tell ye, mister, but I've counted 'leven hundred ally gators to the mile from Vicksburg cl'ar down to New Orleans. That was years ago, afore a shot was ever fired at 'em.' 'Well, I don't doubt it,' replied the stranger. 'And I've counted 3,459 of 'em on one sand bar,' continued tho pilot. 'lt looks big to tell, but a Government surveyor was aboard, and he checked 'em off as I called out.' 'I haven't the least doubt of it,' said tho passenger, as he heaved a sigh. 'l'm glad o' that, stranger. Some fellers would think I am a liar, when I'm telling tbe solemn truth.

I used to almost feel sorry for tbe cussed brutes, 'cause they'd cry out e'en most like a human lieing. We killed lots of 'em. as I said, and we hurt a pile more.

'Wo never take country boys into our business any mo;e,' remarke 1 a gentleman the other day—a tnaa who bad a large hardware business in the i city of Philadelphia. •And why not 1' 'Because in forty-nine cases out of fifty they don't do well. The excep tion it the oue who comes here under the special protection of some one; he lives with an uncle, or aunt, or some friend of the family, who looks after his welfare and his habits anl keeps him from going astray. But the average country boy, who comes to the city and goes to live in a board ing-house, very quickly comes to grief, lie is allured and attracted by the strange things which environ him ; he wants to see 'the sights,' his habits be come unsteady, and he is nob to be trusted. No man wants a boy in his business whose evenings are uot well «pont, and to be well spent they should largely he spent in study.' 'My father,' he went on, 'was a'boss' plasterer, aiid, aside from his own live sons, he usually had five to six appren tices. These apprentices he had in his own family, and he looked after them precisely as he watched the boys. Perhaps once a week they would be allowed to go out for some entertain ment—a lecture at the Franklin Insti tute or something of the kind—but he always accompanied them On the other evenings they devoted on hour or two to study—to drawiug—to what ever would bo of use them in their trade. And not one of father's 'boys' has turned out badlv. One of them is now president of a bank in Kansas. 'ln my own business I have h&d some queer experiences with boys. We had one boy come fo us about fif teen years ago, who began at the very bottom—as all successful men do—in sweeping the store, fixing fires, etc He always managed to sjwnd about an hour in the store before breakfast, and his evenings were spent there. It was not long before that boy knew where everything in the store was, and be would remember the faces of customers, and their names, and the sort of pur chases they made, for months after, and iu a general way he mastered the entire inside business of the establish ment, but he understood the general financial value of our customers. Ho saw everything, knew where every thing was, and in a multitude of in stances prevented customers being turned away on the ground that we were out of such and such wares, or did not keep tbem, by informing the clerks where the desired articles were to be found 'up stairs.' He manifested the same interest in the welfare of the establishment as if it had been his own. I don't think he had been in school a day after he was twelve years old except the school of business. And just here I want to say that the suc cessful business men of the country are not boys who have first gone 'though college,' Business is something that needs to bo learned as one learns a language—from the bottom up—and one has to begin young to be ready for if. when he reaches manhood. Well, that boy became invaluable. His salary was very modest at first, but we gradually increased it until we paid him $1,200. We then began to think of taking him into partnership, and wandered whether he had saved any money to put into the concern. We Itelieved that he had been frugal, but he had paid board regularly to his mother, ami we hardly supposed that his savings would amount to much. One day we called him in our privato office and offered him a partueship, add ing that if he had any money to put in, his profits, of course, would be that much greater. Ho replied, very mod estly, that he had no money except svhat'we hid paid him as salary, and if 110,000 would be any object to us, he could furnish that amount. He had $!»,600 in bank and his sistor owed him S4OO, which was the sum of his capital, the total of what his savings had amounted to during the twelvo years he had l>ecn In onr employ. Ten thousand dollars ! You may be sure we were astonished. But he hatl only told the truth in the matter. We took him into partnership very readily, you may be assured. 'We bail another boy—an appren tice. lie was with us from about thirteen until lie was twenty one—in dentured until that time. Well, ho was a different sort of a boy. Ho nev er was on time in the morning, and whenever wanted during the day like as not be was on the top floor reading a novel. He took no interest in the business—a heedless, floppy fellow, who didn't know where anything was, and didn't care to know When liis apprenticeship expired I called him in to my office and said, ss I paid him what balance of money wasdue : 'James, 3'our time is up and you are free to go. You've not been worth much to us, and unless you turn over a new leaf you'll never be worth much to anybody else. 1 then paticulamed his faults, and ended bv telling hi u that he could stay in our employ for a time provided he turned over an entirely new leaf. If he couldn't do that we didn't want him around. I confess I had no faith in his promise, but he ageed to stay, and agreed to turn over a 'new leaf.' The surprising part of the story is that the follow diil turn over a new leaf, and from that day on became an entire -1« changed man, and one of the most valuable men in the establishment. He is with us yet.' I have thought this business man's tnlk worth repeating, as the career of both boys in interesting and may be of Hervice to Homo other buy, mid especial- Iv to tin' good for-nothlng boy, who can turn over n new leaf if he only will. Also to that hydra-headed eoun try boy, who longs for a situation in the eity. _ I»oirt tlip IIUIIMC. Ask lor 'Hough ou Hats.'

NO. 2i (■loan in km. General J. Meredith Head is using bis lesiure in Paris in writing a life of Gibbon, the historian. It appears that the total customs duties levied on books imported into the United States realize not less thau $•250,000. Mr. Robert Browning wrote his tragedy of "The Blot in tha 'Scut cheon" and his tragedy of ' The lie turn of the Druses' each in five days. Nearly 1,500 of the 3,630 ftreets of Paris have during the last thirty years had their names chauged, chiefly for political reasous. This must involve infinite trouble to the residents. The cost of feeding prisoners in San Francisco is low. Last year iu that city, meals were furnished prisoners to the number of 41,839, at an average cost of 4i cents per meal.

There is a movement in North Caro lina to commemorate the first landing of Englishmen within the limits of the Union. It was about July 4, 1584, that Amidas and Barlowe came to an chor off Roanoke island, and the State Press association propose to see to it that the event be celebrated on the In dependence day of 1884. During the year just passed thero were published in England a total of 5,40G new books, of which 1,29(i were new editions, books already known to the public. This shows a falling off, as compared with the year 1880, of about 300 books, which is attributed to the rapid development of the periodi cal press. During 1881, 161 buildings and 8 docks were put npin Portland, Oregou, their total cost being $1,110,070, an in crease of $'268,335 over the total cost of buildings put up in 1880. In addi tion over $60,000 worth of stone foun dation, preparatory to building during the coming season. During the same time $283,839 has been expended in laying block-stone and macadam streets. A very fine canary bird is owned by a gentleman in Nevada county, Cali fornia. RecenMy unusual quantities of food disappeared from its cage. One day the gentleman chanced to look in the cage, and there, snugly stowed away iu one of the seed-boxes, was a mouse as fat as butter. Upon attempt ing to remove tho mouse the canary made a chivalrous fight for the little animal. A singular fact is that while the mouse was in the cage tho bird kept up a constant singing all day, but since the mouse has been removed the bird has refused to warble. [Logan, (Ohio) Hocking Sentinel.] Hockiug Valley .Vchk. In the abscence of any thing start ling or terrific,—politics and the ex ploits of tho army worm excepted,— news from this delightful valley will not prove nerve-tingling. However an item of great importance to many people is communicated by Mr. F. Harrington. Wholesale and Retail Druggist of Logan, who thus writes: Mr. Alex McClurg, Union Furnaces, states that his wife had been afflicted with rheumatism for tho last twenty five years, being unable to walk with out canes or other help the most of that time ; has now used two bottles of St. Jacobs Oil and walks not only about tho house but also in the fields without any helps. The Pop per in en t Crop. The peperment crop of the United States has for tho past few years reach ed the amount of 70,000 pounds per year, of which about 30,000 pounds "were annually exported. Two-thirds of the peppermint oil of this conntry is produced in New York and about one third in Michigan. Tho best oil comes from Wayne couuty, N.

Acriirnle Time* Keeping* Many of tho discoveries of science which at tho time are regarded merely as refinements—very interesting, but without practical value—sooner or later find their B|>ecial uses in supplying wants before unfelt. It is but one of the evidences of the advance of civiliza tion that exact methods of dividing and measuring time are now in de mand, not only by scientists and pro fessional men as formerly, but by per sons in tho ordinary pursuits of life. To railroad men and watch-makers as a matter of necessity, to manufacturers and business men as a mattor of economy, and to individuals as a mat ter of convenience, it has come be high ly Important to know what is the ex act time of day to tho second, in cir cumstances where half a century ago it would have quite sufficed to know tho minute or even the hour. This may l»e duo to the increased value of time when measured by the number of events or the magnitude of operations which modern ingenuity is capable of crowding into a given interval; there can be no doubt that o seeond to-day records a greater stride in tho world'* progress than did many hours in tho days of our ancestors. 01 so groat im portance, for many evident reasons, has the knowledge of the exact time be come, that much thought of some of the Ix-st heads has l>een devoted to methods of ascertaining it and making it available by distribution for public use. To the weak Peruna gives strength.
