A Bullet Passed Through a St Louis Man
liraln and Yet Ho Recovered
Emil Witzky after occupying a cot
at the City hospital for over two months
with a bullet in his brain is now walk
ing about nearly as well as any one and
will be discharged a cured man iti the
nurse of a few days
Witzkya case is one of the most re
markable that ever came under the no
tice of St Louis surgeons It is much
stranger than that of the man Tesson
who attempted to commit suicide in
Forest parka year ago Tesson lingered
between life and death about a month
but finally died from the effects of the
bullet which lodged in the center of
his head Tesson never got up from his
bed after sending the leaden pellet into
his brain and for that matter was un
counscious nearly all the time Wit ky
is as rational as any man walking the
streets He shot himself over the left
eye after having trouble with his wife
and motherinlaw
From tho paralysis it caused in his
right leg Dr Marks decided that the
ball lodged in the back of his head on
he left side The jagged hole in the
forehead finally healed over and after
remaining in half dead state for near
ly a week Witzky came to He was noi
able to move for fully a month on account
count of the paralysis No sensation
was in the right leg whatever Needles
could be thrust into it or it could be
pinched or burned without his feeling
the pain Three or four weeks ago the
paralysis began to disappear It was
thought strange indeed by Dr Marks
and the other pnysicinne for the bullet
bad not been removed and no reason
was apparent for the deadness to disappear
appear Yet go away it did and since
that time his recovery has been steady
as clockwork How that 88 caliber bul
let plunged through six cr eight inches
of his brain and remained resting among
the tissues without causing instant death

After a rest of one week the machin

with the pleasant sound of the factory

The board of directors when they

close down left the matter of starting
up again entirely in the hands of the
executive committee of that body with
Instructions to thoroughly overhaul all
departments and ascertain whether or
no operating expenses could be cut suf
ficently to warrant the starting up of
the mills This committee has done its
work well Its report was presented
to the board of directors and accepted
and in consequence the factory started
up this morning
The wages of the employes haye not
been shaved except those of a half
dozen or so of those who were highest
It all depends now upon the em

run They haye been put to work on
the old basis and so long as they ac

What a Woodpllo Indicates
What a satisfaction it is to see a gon
erous whole souled woodpile It gives
one a better opinion of the world and
brings up a rich flood of memories and
associations One has no need to be
told that the owner is the father of half
a dozen boys and girls and that the
neighbors like to gather under his roof
daring tho long winter evenings when
the snow and wind outside but empha
size the warmth and cheer within
One has no need to call on the imag
ination to see the great pile of extra
logs in the corner waiting their turn
at the fiery carnival dancing and glow
ing in the fireplace or the half circle
of merry story tellers gathered about the
hearth eating Apples and cracking nuts
and exchanging experiences of farming
and hunting with each other
What an open large hearted hospital
ity such profusion of wood suggests It
never occurs to one that the owner may
be niggardly or churlish Such a pile
of wood can only belong to a man
whose heart is large enough to take in
the whole neighborhood
But what a contrast is the woodpile
across the waya 1 few sticks that even
tho house dog refuses to sleep behind
No wonder the boys are thin and sick
ly and the girls weak and discontented
One can scarcely imagine a smile or a
bit of laughter or fl jest passing through
a door that overlooks such a pieDon

Reason to Believe That Wo Will Have to
Guard Against the Plat ie This Year
For over two years the Asiatic cholera
has been epidemic in western Russia
but as we have had reports of the sub
sidence of its ravages during the win
ter months there was hope that there
might not be a recurrence this spring of
the unhappy experiences of that season
in 1892 and 1393 We regret that the
dispatches at hand ore unfavorable
There have been violent outbreaks of
the disease during the past week at a
number of the populous centers of the
western provinces one of the most vio
lent of them as far west as the city of
Warsaw and from that place both Ger
many and Austria are again directly
There is reason therefore to fear
that New York will have to be on the
guard for yet another year and that
there will be need for the utmost vigi
lance on tho part of the officers of our
quarantine service We do not doubt
the ability of these onacers to maintain
the safety of the city
It is to be hoped that the European
governments represented in the interna
tional sanitary commission which has
held a conference in Paris will provide
for the prompt execution of those de
fensive measures which have met with
the approval of the delegates This au
thoritative commission was organized
for the express purpose of preparing an
anticholera programme acceptable to tho
leading powers of the world and it will
be a public shame ir the recommenda

A Novel Case In an Oregon Court In Which
a Lady Offers to Show Her Feet
Spectators in Justice Woods court
yesterday morning enjoyed an hour of
comedy in which H D Carmine and
wife and Mrs Luella Runyon were the
principal actora
Cnrmine was on trial on charges of
assaulting Mrs Runyon and tearing
and destroying a cape belonging to her
The complaining witness testified that
she was a chiropodist and that she had
contracted with Mrs Carmine who is
a dressmaker for some dresses and a
cape agreeing to tender her professional
services in return When the dresses
etc were completed Mrs Runyon
called for them but found that Mrs
Carmine didnt need her services but
wanted her money Carmine interfered
jn the trouble which followed and man
pged to tear the gape and get himself
mixed up with the justices court
When Carmine was placed on the
sfand and had told his version of the
affair he was asked if his wife waif
troubled with corns or bunions The
attorneys for the defense excitedly ob
jected to this and had a wordy war with
Deputy District Attorney Malarkoy
which resulted in a victory for the de
fense the court holding that a husband
was not supposed to tell all he knew in
regard to bis wife
When Mrs Carmipe took the stand
however the objection no longer held
and she was compelled to admit that
she had a small corn which never
troubled her In the discussion of
corns and bunions which followed Mrs
Runyon demanded that Mrs Carmine
allow the court to examine her feet and
Mrs Carmine won the day by spirited
ly replying that she was willing to do
BO if the court thought it necessary
Carmine was discharged from CUll

We Killed a Bear
Rev J W Bradshaw of the Congre
gationalist church of Ann Arbor Mich
preached a sermon against woman suf
frage on a recent Sunday morning being
greatly concerned lest the bad women
should outvote the good women The
Ann Arbor Democrat reviews the ser
mon and calls attention to the fact that
there are so few bad women compara
tively speaking that as a class they nev
er attempt to assert themselves in any
place of civil government whatever
The Pemocrat says that Mr Bradshawa
sermon carried little conviction and pro
ceeds to console him in this fashion
Be sure women will vote the con
servatives to tho contrary notwithstand

and women will largely become a factor

grievance of the Paris Walters Which IS
Considered Just Grounds For a Strike
There is much dissatisfaction among
Parisian waiters and a general strike
among them has been spoken of It is
estimated by their trade society that
there are 40000 of them out of work
I and the men contend that the masters
I take advantage of this to cut down
their earnings Practically fixed wages
are unknown The men pay so much to
the masters in proportion to tho busi
ness they do Thus in great cafes on
the boulevards they have to pay at the
cash desk the full selling price of what
ever they serveplna 5 per cont In Borne
cases it is said the rate has been In
creased of late to aM and even TM per
cent Of course this percentage repre
sents a portion of their gratuities which
they have to give up
In Paris the general rule is for cus
tomers to give tips at the rate of a
halfpenny for every 10 pence expended
This is at the rate of 5 per cent which
would show a loss to the waiter of 2M
per cent on tho larger percentage In
practice however the tips are higher
as no one gives less than a penny how
ever small the purchase and some cus
I tomers of course give more than the
recocnized minimumLondon News
