Triiil.l.id- Atpliiilt Lake.
The tourist may take passage to the
"land of the humming bird" as Trin
idad people like their country to be
called and after securing accommoda
tion at the only decent hotel In the
colony, proceed to the lake by one of
the small government steamers plying
coastwise three times weekly, disem
bark at the Brighten pier, and proceed
to the scene of "digging." Of all the
crude, rough and ready means of ex
tracting wealth from mother earth, the
Trinidad lake asphalt operations are
the most striking, says a writer in the
New York Post. The Visitor arrives
on a fairly level plateau, spotted here
and there with tiny pools of water, be
neath which the soft shiny substance
known as asphalt glitters in the re
flections of a fierce tropical sun. Scat
tered over the surface of the lake dcz
ens of swarthy negroes are plying pick
and hoe, extracting the tar-coaly look
ing stuff from the earth. One may sit
in the shade of a near-by shrub or
under the protecting shelter of an um
brella and watch the negroes pile heap
after heap of the asphalt into tho end
of the endless chain of tubs that hurry
along to the pier, from which one has
but recently landed, until a yawning
excavation of twenty or more feet sug
gests to the supervising darky that the
time has come to move a bit further
on. In the course of a few hours the
excavation resulting from the morn
ing's disin.cs begins to look less deep,
and by the evening the spot from
which more than five or ten tons have
be-on dug is asrain level with the sur
rounding earth and ready to bo dug
over by the gang of noisy black3.
From the point of digging to the pier
is about a mile or less of endless

Almost Forgotten Attempt on the Pre
idetit' I.iO.
On March 30. 1SZ7, Gen. Jackson was
attending the funeral of Warren U.
Davis, a member of congress from
South Carolina at the capitol, and
while walking in procession to take a
carriage on the east fnnt of the capi
tol he was approached by a man
named Richard Lawrence, who pre
sented a pistol within a few feet of
him. The cap exploded, but did not ig
nite the charge. Lawrence threw the
pistol away and drew another, which
also missed fire. Gen. Jackson was on
the arm of Mr. Woodbury, secretary of
the treasury, but pursued the assassin
with raised cane. Lieut. Gedney of the
navy knocked Lawrence down, an J the
friends of the president tried to re
strain him. but he said: "Let me go,
gentlemen; I am not afraid. They can't
kill me. I can protect myself." Law
rence was arrested and arraigned be
fore Judge Cranch and committed. At
the trial he behaved much as Guiteau
did, interrupting the proceedings and
talking all the time, until the Judge
ordered hira to be removed from the
court room. A commission appointed
to examine Into his condition reported
him of unsound mind. He was com
mitted to an insane asylum, where he
lived for many years. There, was an
attempt made to involve some political
adversaries of Gen. Jackson Jn this at
tempt on his life, but the examination
and trial revealed nothing but that it
was th act of a roadman. Gen. J.ck-
son's escape from death was providen
tial. The pistol were loaded very
heavily, and ufter the arrest of Law
rence were fired, the caps exploding
and igniting the powder readily In iho
pistol and sending the balls through
several inches of plank. It was stated
that Gen. Jackson said at the time that
he knew where the attempt originated.

Dental plate In the Mouth the Possible
Clew That May Lead to Identity of
the Dectatfd Look 1.1 We Uurder
Case Sleuth Work liecius.
Citizens of Crown Point, lad., and
vicinity are wrought up over the find
ing of a grewsome skull in Cedar Lake
Saturday, by little Tony Ilertzler.
The lad was fishing and his hoak
brought up the bony framework of j
what is supposed to have been the
head cf a woman.
The fine hair on the skull and the
peculiarly delicate curve of the tooth
plate these are their chief proofs. An
important clew is believed to exist in
the peculiar fashioning of a dental
plate found in the mouth.
The teeth were upper incisors, run
ning from lae left eye tooth to the
front of the mouth. The plate, which
raw Kca.ra.trt
Dr. Iniiviiain said was not of the most
approved make, was only an inch
across in its widest part, that fitting
across from gum to gum of the back
From the "soft palate" end to the
point where the teeth were atiarh:d
was one and one-quarter inches, and
the point where the teeth were attach-
ed wes nine-sixteenths of an inch
across. There was no gum work on
the plate.
Dr. Joseph Van OsinskI, deputy coro
ner, told Sheriff Lawrence of Lake
county, that he had placed the plate
and teeth in the little coffin in which
he had buried the crumbled skull af
ter the inquest, in which he declared
murder had been done.
The Importance of the plate as a
clew was so great that arrangements
were made to exhume it. Dr. Osinski
was preparing to accompany the sher
iff to the cemetery, when he put his
hand into his overcoat pocket. There
he found the plate. Sheriff Lawrence
seized it eagerly. He had not seen it
Wmle Dr. OsinskI was inclined to
think the head was that of a man, ho
admitted that he based his opinion en
tirely on his examination of the hair.
He found two grades. ne coarse and
one very fine. Before the head fell to
pieces in Sheriff Lawrence's hands he ,
had noticed hair clinKins to the lime
like substance that answered for flesh,
and he believed the head was that of
a man with a beard.
From the fact that there were fine
and coarso hairs Dr. Osinski figured
the same way, although he never saw
the head before it broke into frag
ments. Sheriff Lawrence is proceeding en
tirely on the theory that a woman
was the victim of ffca lake murder
mystery. All about Cedar Lake, among
the regular dwellers and the cottage,
is intense excitement, and a demand
for the fulle?t Investigation.
Foreman McKinnon of the Armour
ice house at Cedar Lake, admitted
that one of the 300 men employed
there last winter had failed to call for
three days pay due him, and that the
amount was still to his credit on Ar
mour & Co.'s books In the Chicago
office. But he said it was nothing un
usual for the ice cutters to wander
away in that manner. There had been
no serious quarrels among the men
during the past few winters, as far
as he knew.

Alabama DIaek Lynched for Attack on
a 'White Woman.
Winfield Townsend, a negro who
Monday made an attack upon Mrs.
Lonnle Harrington, was burned at the
stake in the village of Eclectic, Ala.,
arly Tuesday morning. The husband
of the negro's victim applied the torch
to the pile of pine knots above which
the culprit had been bound, and, with
several dozen of his friends and neigh- ,
bors, stood by while the flames did
their work. As they leaped to the
flesh of the negro he cried wildly for
mercy and writhed in agony until he
lost consciousness. The crowd stood
silently about the pyre for half an
hour, at the end of which time noth
ing remained of tne heap of wood and
the human body but ashes.
The negro had run away after the
commission of the crime, but was
traced with bloodhounds, and found
sitting on the limb of a tree. He was
taken before Mrs. Harrington, who
identified him, and then to a lonely
spot to be slain.
Then a halt was called and the man
ner of death discussed by the mob. A
vote was taken, and the balloting
showed a majority of the crowd to
favor death at the stake
The stake
was prepared, the negro bound to It
with chains and the fire was started.
After the negro's body had been con
sumed the crowd quietly dispersed.

The miners, nowever, have about

they say, is a mere trifle and not

The fact that the operator.! have
made what appears to be a studied
effort to ignore the miners' union is
what aggravates the strikers most.
They say it is useless to talk of a
settlement unless the presidents of
the big coal companies make up their
minds to recognize th union. One of
the officers of the United Mine Work

"I don't we how au agreement can
