By Walas " w3 sp DyL ývi JACK THE SLASHER. Burglary that Is Attended with Vandalism Is Alarming Washington. Even the (roee Reenm at the White Bernae Entered and D)espeled by the Thief. WAsHIanTor,Nov. 2D.-The vandalism of a mysterious miscreant who has been designated as "Jack the Slasher" is be coming more bold and outrageous. For many weeks past there has been a series of robberies of a mysterious and pecu. liar kind in Washington. The burglar or burglars have stolen but few things, but have at each visit destroyed a con siderable amount of furniture, slashing pianos and chairs and cutting up table linen and clothing. Every effort to trace the criminal orcriminals hasfalled. Last night he or they entered the house of Samuel Johnson, 427 Severth street. The family was out at the time. Mrs. Johnson returned home late in the even ing and no sooner had she gone into the dining room than the whole neighbor hood was startled by her cries. People in the immediate vicinity ran into the house, and found the poor woman lying i on the floor in the dining room, suffer ing from a violent attack of hysterics. All the draperies in the room. mantels, chairs. curtains, portiers, table linen and other cloth materials hail been slashed into shreds and thrown on the floor in a heap. That was only the beginning of tho outrage. In the kitchen the scene at first glance represented chaos. In the middle of the floor the family larder had been emptied. The Sunday meats groceries. etc., were in a heap. Over the mass the vandals had thrown at random huge quantities of lard and butter, and then to make the ruin more complete, picked up a gallon can of oil, and thor ughly saturated the mass. The condi tion of Mrs. Johnson tonight 'is quite senous. Without any thouwht of burrrlrs. hut F Without any thought of burglars,. but g solely for the protection of the president the White House has been guarded by special detectives and policemen, in ad dition to the regular watchmen, and every precaution has been taken to pre vent any unauthorized person from en tering the building. The east room has alone been open to visitors. None have r been permitted to enter there who took. ed suspicious, and those who have been permitted to examine the room have been in charge of watchmen. All other portions of the house have been kept closed to visitors except on special occa sions. Notwithstanding all these'precautions it has been demonstrated that the house may be entered without the knowledge of the guardians. It has been discov ered that some person or persons. pos sibly a crank, had entered the green room, where visitors are not allowed ex cept with a guard in attendance, and slashed the furniture with a knife Great slashes in the form of a cros have been cut into the beautiful satin upholstery, and other acts of vandalism have been committed upon the furni ture. Whether this was wanton vandal. ism with no other object in view, or whether it was done by some crank as a warning or threat igalnst the president is not known. The supposition is that the cutting of crosses in the furniture is intended as a threat, such as the senders of blood thirsty anonymous letters convey by cress-bone and skulls. Whatever may be the motive, the fact that an entrance could be made to the building and this act of vandalism committed and the culprit escape without being discovered, ha served to frighten the president's household.

SPRINGFI:LD, Ill., Nov. 20.--Charley Willis, aged 13, was shot and killed last night while being initiated into a society composed of youngsters from 12 to 15 The society is called the "S. 8. 8. S.,'. standing for "Seven Secret Silent Shades." The boys, whose minds were evidently inflamed by blood-and-thun der literature, had a cave in the out skirts of the city, and today Louis Ba ker and Thomas Winter, two leading spirits of the society, invited young Wil lis to join the b~and. He consented and when the ceremony was abo"*tover young Barker pointed a pistol at him and pull. ed the trigger. Willis fell with a bullet close to his heart. He was removed to an adjoining house, but died in a few minutes. All the members of the soci ety were arrested, but most of them de clined to say anything about the killing, as it was eontrary to their oaths. Some, however, were frightened into telling enough of the occurrence to enable the coroner's jury to bring in a verdict of accidental death. Young Baker seemed to regard himself as quite a hero. And the Mayer itood Pat. Mr.NNEAPOLIs, Nov. 20.-The avowed determination of Mayor Eustis to stand pat and allow the saloons to remain open on Sunday, regardless of the opposition of the clergy, resulted in a fusilade from several pulpits today. Rev. O. F. Jenks declared that in case the mayor failed to heed the demand to enforce the law he should be impeached. Rev. Dr. H. H. French declared that there was no such thing as a respectable saloon or a re spectable saloon keeper, and so it went Meanwhile the mayor went out and laid the corner stone of the new Jewish syn agogue.

Menage, theem bezzling president of the Northwest Guaranty Loan and Trust company of Minneapolis, who was arrested here, is still in the closest confinement. Hepk sists in denying that he is Menage, and firmly declares that he is none other i than C. A. Miller, the name he has been known by here. An Ab sess ou tse CuretLt. There I a utngro church in Somervl.e and some funny things happen there. It seems that there was a little recess Ins hind the pulpit which was used for the pastor's dressing room. One day in a heavy rain the fresco fell with a crash upon the floor. Preparations were nl:ca to repair the damage with the customar) r African promptness. The pastor, however, soon got die gusted, and one morning, after getting his feet covered with the dusty mortar he ascended the pulpit. Casting his eye Supon the dusty deacons of the church, he announced with dignity: "Bredren and sisters, it gibs yo' pastor great pain tao call attention to the state of affairs in din yere church; but, bredren. de gospel in dis yere church must cease to be dis pensed with till de abscess in de rest oh do pulpit am fricasseed." The fresco was put up next day.-Bo- ton Budget.

I gave myself up to my Savoir, determined if I could not stay with my friends on earth, I would meet my absent ones above. My husband was advised to get Dr. King's New Die covery for consumption, coughs and colds. I gave it a trial, tok in all eight bottles; it has cured me, and thank God I am a well and hearty woman."

Queer Native Metbeds to Coes ehewes Is m em of Dreought. During the summer season in Japan droughts are very frequent, and the rice fields, before so beautiful, presenting as they do all the different shades of green imaginable, gradually lose their bril liancy of color, turn yellow and parched, and threaten the total destruetion of the erop. Not only does the rice suffer, but the wells dry up and necessitate the car rying of water from lng distances. Boa drought in Japan is indeed a great na lamity. After waiting and hoping in vain for a downfall of rain, the people turn out on mses to evoke the power of their deities to send them the saving showers. A proosusion is formed of perhaps o00 men, all nearly naked, who, carrying straw emnblem representingthe sun with rain pouring from it and with long streamers having prayers written on them fying in the wind, proceed to the nearest river or bay, where the whole company wades into the water until they are waist deep, and surrounding the emblems pray aloud and throw wa ter on the images with both hands. After doing this several times the pro cession is reformed, when it proceeds to the temple to pray again. This cere mony is repeated several times, and should therain come in abundance pray ers are offered in thanksgiving. Should it be only a shower, they blame them. selves for not having prayed fervently enough and continue their devotions un til a downpour takes place. Another form of devotion for the same purpose takes place at nightfall, when a long boat is filled with men and paddled swiftly across the harbor, accompanying the prayers by the regular beatings of tomtoms and gongs. Sometimes at night, away down the bay, may be heard the weird sound If the tomtoms and the voices of the men gradually growing louder and louder as the boat approaches, each man bending to his paddle in regu lar time as it passes us swiftly and grad ually disappears in the darkness and is soon lost to sigit and hearing.-Yoko hama Letter.
