HARRIMAN’S HONE
NEARLY FINISHED
Hundred Thousand Dollar Pal
ace Will Be Ready When He
Returns From Europe.
AiiocUtad Fresi.
New York, Aug. 11. —When E. H.
Harriman returns from Europe next
month, it will be to occupy one of the
finest country residences in America.
The finishing touches are being placed
on the house which stands on Tower
Hill, near Arden, N. Y. From this ele
vation of 900 feet signals were flashed
during the colonial revolutionry days of
the approach of an enemy. Mr. Harri
man has constructed a stone mansion
costing more than $100,000 on the sum
mit of this hill and overlooking a re
markable landscape which includes a
beautiful lake and several rivers.
As Mr. Harriman desires privacy, he
has purchased the surrounding roads so
that strangers cannot approach nearer
than five miles to the house without
permission. Besides other novelties the
house includes a large open air swim
ming pool.

QUITS LAW 10 DO
MANUAL LABOR
Wisconsin Jurist Has Strange
Impulse Which Drives Him
to Work With Hands.
Aiwclated Press.
Kenosha, Wis., Aug. IL —Former
Judge Joseph R. Clarkson of this city,
who wandered away from home last
month under the spell of a strange
impulse which drove him to manual
labor, and who was found after weeks
of search working in a factory in Sa
bula, Iowa, gave up the profession of
law yesterday. Today his name will go
on the payroll of a local manufacturing
firm.
“Give me a place where I can do
manual labor,’’ he told his friends.
“I want to work witl. my hands and
enjoy the pleasures of a man who is
absolutely engaged in the production
of something of a tangible nature.
While I am improving my muscles, I
also will improve my mind with the
ultimate view of entering the work of
the church. I ought to be able to earn
$3 or $4 a day in a short time.’’
Formal dissolution of his law part
nership was announced last night.

made threats to kill Jacob Shubert, a

Fishermen
Land Shark
12 Feet Long
New York, Aug. 11. —A shaik of the
elephant species, said to be the largest
ever caught along the Jersey eoast, is
' on exhibition today in a Long Branch
shop. It is 12 feet long and weighs
1000 pounds. It was captured off Long
Branch by a fishing crew after a vicious
- battle.
The shark, which is of the man-eating
i variety and with a reputation for com
bativeness, was feasting in a school of
mackerel when the fishermen speared
him. For half an hour the monster
towed the fishermen's boat around the
ocean before he was subdued with hooks
and prongs. The presence of the shark
has intimidated many of the bathers
along the Jersey coast who fear that it
may be the forerunner of many others.
MADE MUChTnOISE.
BUT SAYS AUTO
WAS NOT SPEEDING
Charged with exceeding the automo
bile speed limit, D. Martin, was fined
$25 by Judge Buckley in the police
court this morning.
Martin was arrested on Houston
street at 1 o’clock Sunday morning by
street at 1 o’clock Sunday morning by
Mounted Officer Bubiolo, after the of
ficer had chased the machine several
blocks. Three Houston street patrol
men testified that the defendant when
he passed them, was going at a rate
of speed estimated between 25 and 30
miles an hour.
Martin claimed that he was not mak
ing the limit allowed by law and that
because his automobile was a great
“noise maker,’’ believed the police
might have been led to think that he
j was going at a fast clip. Notice of ap
peal was given.
DOES TARIFF LAW
AFFECT THIS ZINC?

Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 11.—A tariff
law issue has arisen in Kansas City
over a consignment of twenty-five car
loads of zinc ore that reached here from
Mexico.
The shipment crossed the Mexican
frontier five hours before the tariff bill
was signed by President Taft. The im
porters claim that it should be admitted
free as the Dingley law called for no
I duty. C. W. Clarke, surveyor of the
I port here, declares he had no official
; knowledge of the presence of the ore
• in this country until the law had be
| come operative and demands a duty of j
| one cent a pound. The matter was re
- ferred to Washington.
WANTED A HANDOUT.
“I suppose,’’ began the kind lady,
before Mr. Husky Hasbeen got a chance
to exercise his voice, “that yon want
to chop some wood in exchang for a
square meal, don’t you?”
“I’d like ter oblige yer. lady/’ re
plied the dusty traveler, “but it's bin
| mor’n twenty years since I done enny
thing in dat line.”'
“Weil.” said the k. 1.. “here’s
where you can practice till you get your
hand in.”
“Nothin’ doin’, lady,” rejoined the
hobo. “Wot I’m lookin’ fer is a hand
out, see?”
And the kind lady fell in a faint.
