an attempted robbery on upper Eighth 1
avenue In which George Glendennlng c
' the seventeen yeaf old son of Wm. D. '

Yesterday morning about three

Sanford, a prominent merchant of upper
Eighth avenue, was suddenly
awakened by the drop of some liquid
upon her cheek. Opening her eyes,
' she was startled to see a boy standing
over her with a bottle of chloroform
to her nostrils.
, She screamed but her husband did

' to the etherizing drug before his wife
and It required both loud screaming
and pinching before he could be?awakened.

It was then that the daring burglar

through a window ft was evident to
both Mr. and Mrs. Sanford that he
was a cripple, and they both thought s

SCANDAL FOLLOWS THE RECENT 0
TEACHER'S EXAMINATION
IN JACKSON.
A most disgraceful state of affairs
developed at the teachers' examination o
at Ripley last week, the result of which ti
will probably have a lasting Influence ?
on the careers of several persons. K. p
E. Kessell, a young member of the p
class, handed In manuscript for one |,
set of questions so quickly that It ex- v
cited the suspicion of Superintendent r
Rhodes and upon Inquiry he admitted a

ana the answers had been previously j
prepared. f
i rtei.i innntrv has been Instituted, t
by the State superintendent and a rep- 0
resentattve came to Ripley to Investl- 0
gate Saturday. It Is believed that p
the questions were generally circulated p
and several persons prominent in Ripley
are under suspicion. It may re- p

NEW YORK, July 26.?Lieutenant p
Colonel Charles 0. Ayres, of the ti
Tenth United States cavalry, char- s
notorizes his retirement by the War p
Department as an outrage. Colonel p
Ayres made tills statement at bis sum- v
mer home near Deal, N. J.: o
1 consider that I have been most A
unjustly treated In being retired from
the active list I was granted six
months' leave ot absence, with four
months of full pay. But two months c
of that time has elapsed. I certainly
think that the authorities at Washington
might have at least waited for
the-expiration of the tlrst four months v
before taking thelr .actlon.

In being retired i should have been t!
granted the grade of major general, p
i shall make such demand at tbe
proper time, not as a matter of cnar- c

"I insist that i am physlcially fit to a

which he denied all knowledge of

the shooting of Wilson. Warner had

While declaring,that he had no recollection
of shooting Miss Norltng
Warner said that he shot Wilson and
that Wilson was responsible for his
failure two years ago. He was not
told that Wilson had died.
Warner said that Wilson had financed
hfm when he went Into business.
When notes become due Wilson pressed
him, Warner said, and he was unable
to meet them. Wilson, he said,
forced him Into bankruptcy. Since
that time he had done nothing and
was penniless. Warner was reticent
about what had occurred when talking
to Wilson Just before the shooting.
Warner finally Stated that he had
asked for a loan of $10 and that Wilson
had agreed to give It to him.
"But, "said Warner, "he did not
show any disposition'to produce the
money. I then shot him and tried to
escape."
When asked about Miss Norllng he
declared that he did not shoot her but
said he had shot "Mr. Hess." The police
learned that when Warner spoke
of "Mr. Hess," he meant Mr. Splcer,
the manager of the store where Miss
Norllng was employed.
Warner's condition Is still critical.

are promised.

Van Winkle and Watson as final, It la

carrying on the work of superintendent.
just the same as If he.had been
regularly elected, and that he will present
the names of the teachers he
would hare the board elect for the ensuing
year.
Whether he will be recognized by
the president as the superintendent Is
a question, and thqse familiar with the
situation do not think he will be. Quite
to the contrary, It Is expected that
President Bullock will make the declaration
that the office of superintendent
Is vacant and will have the opinions
of able lawyers to substantiate his
claim.
It will be recalled that when Prof.
Tabler submitted the written opinion
of Mr. Van Winkle and had Mr. Watson
give his verbal opinion the board
failed to elect a successor at the first
regular meeting, that President Bullock
advised the board to adjourn until
to-night, stating that there should

AT WORK.
PITTSBURG, July 26.?"I have quit
guessing," said W. M. Prall, commls
sloner or the Pittsourg uar association.
when he was aaked for an eati
mate of the Pittsburg district tonnage
for 1907.
"Would you yenture an opinion that
it win be 125.009,000 tons!" he was
asked.
"No, I have Quit guessing. I made
a guess last year, putting the estimate
far above 1905. but fell short of the
actual figures. And now comes 1907
with everybody, every railroad and
every mill, breaking records, so I feel
I cannot even hazard a broad guess.
From what I can learn from every
quarter, there will be higher records
In all classes of tonnage than has
ever been known. All the roads tell
the same thing about tonnage passing
all high records, and all shippers say
so for their own plants. So there you
are."
Mr. Frail's opinion Is borne out by
that of railroad men and shippers who
are Interested in the total tonnage.
The passenger traffic has also passed
all high records. New men are being
hired almost every week to care
for the Increasing business. Few pas;
senger cars are not in dally use, while
many are In the terminals only long
enough to be cleaned. Taken entirely,
the railroads of this section are
to-day using several thousand more
men In service than ever before In
railroad history. Further than this
the railroads are earning more than
ever before and are paying the highest
wages ever known.
